The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12-year cycle, each year of which is named after a different animal that imparts distinct characteristics to its year. Many Chinese believe that the year of a person's birth is the primary factor in deciding that person's personality traits, physical and mental attributes and degree of success and happiness throughout his/her lifetime. To learn about your Animal Sign, find the year of your birth among the 12 signs listed below. If born before 1936, add 12 to the year you were born to find your year.
RABBIT: 1939, 1951, 1975, 1987, 1999. Luckiest of all signs, you are also talented and articulate. Affectionate, yet shy, you seek peace throughout your life. Marry a Sheep or Boar. Your opposite is the Cock.
