Chinese Zodiac

The Chinese Horoscope consists of a 12-year cycle, each year of which is named after a different animal with distinct characteristics. The person's birth year is the primary factor in determining that person's personality traits, physical and mental attributes and degree of success and happiness throughout his or her lifetime. It also shows your compatibility with people of the other signs.



According to Chinese legend, the twelve animals quarreled one day as to who was to head the cycle of years. The gods were asked to decide so they held a contest. Whoever reached the opposite bank of the river would be first, and the rest of the animals would receive their years according to their finish. All the twelve animals gathered at the riverbank and jumped in. Unknown to the ox, the rat had jumped upon his back. As the ox was about to jump ashore, the rat jumped off the ox's back, and won the race. The pig who was very lazy, ended up last. That is why the rat is the first year of the animal cycle, the ox second, and the pig last.
