What Is My Chinese Zodiac Sign ?

Update : We published the Chinese Horoscope 2022 – (Year of the Water Tiger ) for each chinese zodiac sign!

You probably didn’t know, but you can learn some really interesting things about your personality based on the characteristics of different animal signs in the Chinese Horoscope!

Your Chinese zodiac sign is derived from your date and year of birth.

There are 12 Chinese zodiac animals (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig). The Chinese zodiac is following a 60-year cycle. During this time, all the zodiac signs pass, one by one, through each of the five elements: metal, water, wood, fire, earth.

Let’s say, for example, that your year of birth is 1962. According to Chinese Astrology, your zodiac sign is  Tiger and your element is Water. In this case, the most accurate description of your person would be that you are calm, careful, and full of ambition.

A Chinese Year begins on the second or third New Moon after the winter solstice. In 2022, the Chinese New Year starts on Tuesday, February 1st.
