Find Your Chinese Zodiac Sign

Jan 19 2017 - 11:35am

Happy Chinese New Year! Also known as the Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, the holiday celebrates the end of the lunisolar Chinese calendar. Today, the world ushers in the year of the rooster, which includes people born in 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, and 2005. But the rooster is just one of 12 animals that represent the Chinese zodiac. Depending on what year you were born, you fall under one of these animals and, therefore, the personality traits associated with that zodiac sign. Read through to find out what your Chinese zodiac sign is, and let us know in the comments if you think it's a good fit!

Year of the Rat

Rats fall in love easily and are quick-witted, loyal, and stubborn.

Year of the Ox

Oxen are down-to-earth homebodies who are agreeable and have good organizational skills.

Year of the Tiger

Tigers are proud, courageous leaders. They're also fashionable, friendly, and outgoing.

Year of the Rabbit

Rabbits are sweet and nonconfrontational. They're also emotional and get their feelings hurt easily.

Year of the Dragon

Dragons are confident leaders. They're attractive, trendy, and love to entertain.

Year of the Snake

Snakes are attractive and sophisticated, devoted (to the point of jealousy) to their partners, and give off an air of mystery by keeping their thoughts to themselves.

Year of the Horse

Horses are intelligent globetrotters with a sense of humor and tendency to fall in love easily. They love to be the life of the party but are also impatient and hot-headed.

Year of the Goat (or Ram)

Goats (or rams) are creative and artistic, and love volunteering. They are sensitive and loving, but can be impractical, moody, and lazy.

Year of the Monkey

Monkeys are smart, curious, and love being the center of attention. They're flirty, social butterflies with a sharp tongue.

Year of the Rooster

Roosters are straight-forward, say-it-how-it-is people who set high standards for themselves (and others). They like flashy attire and lifestyles.

Year of the Dog

Dogs are affectionate, faithful, and loyal — but also can have a tendency to worry and nag. They are great listeners, generous, and have a happy temperament.

Year of the Pig

Pigs are sweet, patient, and cheerful, but can be taken advantage of due to their naïveté. They love the domestic life and would choose family over career.
