Chinese Horoscope

What is the Chinese Zodiac?

The general consensus is that the zodiacs originally had something to do with the worship of animals. A zodiac system has existed in Chinese culture since the Qin dynasty, more than 2,000 years ago.

Over time the zodiacs became more and more integrated into everyday life, with different meanings and characteristics assigned to each animal. This in turn gave rise to various compatabilities (and incompatabilities) between each zodiac, and play a major role in marriage and career decisions, fortune-telling and more!

What's your zodiac animal?

The zodiac cycle repeats every 12 years, making it easy to figure out whether it's your year- just check if your age is a multiple of 12! Here are the 12 zodiac animals in order with accompanying years:
