Chinese Birth Sign (12 animals)

It is the relation of the year of one's birth to one of 12 animals (the rat, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the hare, the horse, the ram, the monkey, the rooster, the dog, and the boar). Instead of the Zodiac sign which is divided into twelve months for the twelve constellation, the Chinese birth sign is divided into twelve year increment. Lunar year of the Tiger start on January 28, 1998, which is also the Chinese New Year.

To find out what sign you belong, search your birthday (month, day and year) on the chart (below). From the twelve sign, if your birthday fall on one of the period covered, then you are born under that sign. For instance if your birthday is December 25, 1998, the period covered (Jan. 28, 1998-Feb. 15, 1999) indicate you are born under the sign of the Tiger.
