Chinese Zodiac

CHINESE ASTROLOGY

Chinese Astrology is based on a twelve-year cycle, with each year of the lunar calendar in the cycle associated with an animal sign. 2019 is the year of Earth Pig. Chinese New Year begins from February 4th, 2019 to January 24th, 2020.

HOW TO FIND YOUR CHINESE ZODIAC ANIMAL SIGN?

To find your Chinese Zodiac Animal Sign, start with your date of birth. If it is before Chinese New Year, use the prior year for the Chinese calendar. If it is after Chinese New Year, then use the same birth year. If it is on Chinese New Year, then you need the time of the birth to accurately determine the Chinese Zodiac Birth Animal. In order to find your correct Chinese Zodiac Animal Sign, it is important to have a little understanding of the two different Chinese calendars. As with most things Chinese, we look at the Yin and Yang. Yin Calendar (Lunar calendar) and a Yang Calendar (Solar calendar).
