significance of Chinese Zodiac

Nowadays, Chinese Zodiac is as popular as Western horoscopes. People sometimes consult it on career, wealth, and relationships, whether serious or for fun. The Chinese Zodiac is based on a twelve years cycle. Each year is represented by an animal with a distinct character. It is believed that your birth year (Zodiac sign or animal sign) can show your personality, physical and mental attributes, even the well-being to a certain extent.

Did you know? Instead of asking the sensitive question of a person's age, ask for the Zodiac sign. Since the Chinese Zodiac goes through a twevle years cycle and then repeats itself, it is easy to have an idea of the age once that person's Zodiac sign is known. An animal sign is indeed a clever way to have an idea of a person's age.
