Chinese Zodiac Year


How to Determine Your Chinese Zodiac Year 

The Chinese zodiac is different than the zodiac in the western world. The traditional western zodiac is on a 12-month cycle, with the 12 ruling birth signs corresponding to the 12 months of the traditional Gregorian calendar.  The Chinese Zodiac, however, runs on a twelve-year, rather than a twelve-month cycle.  Each of the Chinese Zodiac signs rules a full calendar year.  The other major difference is that the Chinese zodiac is based on the traditional Chinese calendar and not the western calendar.  Because the Chinese New Year begins anywhere from late-January to mid-February, those whose birthdays  fall within January or February are affected by the difference in calendar cycles.  The following chart depicts the Chinese zodiac animals and their corresponding years from 1930 – 2038.
