If you’ve ever cracked open a newspaper or browsed Facebook for any length of time you’ve surely seen some form of daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly horoscope. Many people live and die by their horoscope. They never go a day without checking it and live by the assumptions made by the stars and their locations at the time of their birth. In the traditional Western Zodiac, there are thirteen-star signs each assigned to specific months of the year, but did you know that the Chinese Zodiac is completely different?

The Western Zodiac consists of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Opiuchus, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius,, Pisces, and Aries. The year has no effect on these whatsoever, it’s all about the month. However, in the Chinese Zodiac, it’s all about the year. Each year is assigned an animal from the pool of Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Which year is assigned what animal is based upon the Chinese lunar calendar, NOT the Gregorian year that we are accustomed to. The Gregorian calendar always begins on January 1st and ends December 31st. The Chinese lunar year, however, varies from year to year but has consistency in the fact that it always refreshes in either January or February. This time is, of course, the Chinese New Year.

We’re pretty convinced of our Chinese zodiac identity — just look at the year you were born. But can everyone born in the same year really have the same personality? We highly doubt that everyone is exactly the same, but it’s kind of spooky just how close these zodiac predictions can be. Most people do a simple interpretation of their sign which is a broad strokes approach to the zodiac, however, you can always go deeper. As you read the stars more deeply, you may find some uncanny matches between the predictions of the stars and your own personalities as well as those of your friends and loved ones.
