If You Were Born in the Year of the Snake
Intellectual, quick-witted, passionate and sometimes feared. Females are noted for their brains and beauty. Snake-types are also adept at giving the impression they know far more about a subject than they intend to divulge, and while a strict sense of propriety prevents them from telling lies, they are not averse to double-dealing when it suits them. Their ability to gather up information suggests an aptitude for research, detection or academia, all areas that should satisfy their analytical brain. Social or domestic activities will generally need to be tailored to allow for powerful sensuality.
If You Were Born in the Year of the Horse
The Horse loves life, has plenty of sex appeal, charming, smart, popular and moody. On the serious side, they are hard working, tenacious, and loyal. Horse-types are good talkers, never short of conversation, though less quick with ready ideas. The latest news is always a good opening gambit, and the Horse is always keen to hear other peoples’ opinions. Deep-seated prejudices however are hard to dislodge. Love of social contact remains the most important force in the Horse’s life, and whatever career is chosen, ideally it will involve close liaison with others.
If You Were Born in the Year of the Goat

Non-judgmental of others, it is comfortable to be with the Goat and its cousin, the sheep. Their nature is best seen in its artistic talent. They can also be a touch too fastidious, which in many respects explains why their creative natures are not normally fully explored.

Older and wiser Monkeys are able to channel their energetic and fertile imaginations into the solving of extremely complex problems.
If You Were Born in the Year of the Rooster
The Rooster carries out the assignments conscientiously and when faced with an adversary it fights boldly. Always busy, seemingly self-centered, sensitive and attentive to its friends. The Rooster is alert, joining a fundamental punctiliousness with precise attention to detail. The problems arrive when so many projects are taken on that, inevitably, the less troublesome get lost in the sheer volume. In business and personal relationships the quieter more reserved members of the Rooster’s social circle or family may be neglected or forgotten.
If You Were Born in the Year of the Dog
Loyal, trusted, compassionate, protector and is always ready to give aid. Intensely defensive where friends and family are concerned, they will not stand by while others are maligned, but sometimes a refusal to listen to warnings regarding the behavior of children or other loved ones can lead to severe domestic problems.

Rare displays of violent anger are almost always justified, but wrongs are quickly forgotten, and resentment only borne against those outside the intimate circle of family and friends.
If You Were Born in the Year of the Pig
They are courageous, independent, quick-tempered, do not like to compromise, loners and have few friends that will keep for life. They possess great inner strength and fortitude.

Otherwise the Pig’s genuine concern for others will become apparent through voluntary work and being a good neighbor.
