The Chinese Zodiac is divided into 12 cycles where years are represented by animals instead of months, as shown in Western Horoscopes. The Chinese Zodiac is a unique way to discover additional personality traits about you. The 12 animals that are listed below represent the rotating 12-year cycle which is the core of the Chinese Zodiac. Chances are that you have most likely heard references to a particular year referencing one of these animals such as “Year of the Pig” or “Year of the Rabbit.” Below are some of the most significant characteristics of those individuals born within the year of the listed animals.


Rat (Birth Years: 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020)

People born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Rat are known to be charming, yet aggressive. They are known for their multi-tasking abilities and have no problem managing several projects at once. Rat people use money as their motivation to work harder, which can lead them to acquire a few greedy characteristics at times. They are constantly looking to challenges themselves and become a master of a new field that they are unfamiliar with. While Rats are extremely diligent when it comes to their work ethic, their romantic lives are not all that exciting. They make great lovers because of their loyalty and devotion, but are not known to plan romantic getaways or dinners for their partners. The Rat is most compatible with Dragon and Monkey.

Ox (Birth Years: 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021)

People born under the Ox are most recognized for their strong character, and bold personality. Similar to the Rat, they are motivated to work hard, but look down upon carless individuals who do not push themselves to the extent that they do. They are known for making friends that will last a lifetime, and would never think twice about betraying one of their friends or family members. The Ox is also well known for how straightforward they can be, which can be a viewed as a bad quality to some. Many mistake them for not being talkative enough, but they are the type that would rather observe a conversation before simply chiming in to share their thoughts. Oxen are most likely to get along best with Snake or Rooster.


Tiger (Birth Years: 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022)

Tigers have the ability to make their presence known when they enter a room. They can be difficult to read as far as how they feel, because they cannot make up their minds very easily. Tiger people are known for their strong leadership instincts, they can easily come across as intimidating, which leads to them earning the respect of others quickly. While they adapt to change well, they prefer being in an environment that they are familiar with. People born under the Tiger place a high importance on their appearance and grooming, since they constantly seek approval from those around them. Tigers make great lovers because of their willingness to keep their partners on their toes. While they make great lovers, their wild nature may stimulate them to want to rebel and be unfaithful to their partner. Tigers are most compatible with Horse or Dog.


Rabbit (Birth Years: 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 19
