How to Find your Chinese Zodiac Animal

Finding the associated animal in Chinese Horoscope

After I have published Chinese Zodiac Signs and Chinese Horoscope for 2010, the Year of the Tiger a lot of people have asked me how to identify the associated animal for their year of birth.

Zodiac animals are assigned by the year in Chinese astrology. But, you have to keep in mind that the animal signs are also assigned by month known as inner animals, and by the hours of the day called secret animals. So, a person born in the year of rooster, might be a horse internally and tiger secretively. There are 8,640 possible combinations that can be assigned for a person. Also these combinations are considered very important for the proper use of Chinese astrology.

However, I am only giving the basic zodiac animal signs here. From the tables below, you can easily find your assigned Chinese Zodiac animal if you are born between the year 1924 and 2043. I hope it helps.

Since the Chinese New Year changes always, I was always wondering, am I a rat? I found that I was born on the Chinese New Year in 1960. Confirming that I am in fact a Rat, and not a boar. Hey I'm a New Years Baby!

I read a similar chart on the menu card of a local Chinese restaurant. Your chart confirms my sign there.

Great hub. I'm sure lots of people would be interested in this, though I am yet to figure out how it affects us?!!
