The twelve zodiac signs in chinese astrology are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Each animal sign may be associated with one of the elements viz., Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.
The chinese calendar, being a unisolar calendar, has no fixed date to mark the beginning of a year. e.g., The date of Chinese new year in 2017 is January 28. So a person born before the chinese new year has different animal sign from those born on or after the chinese new year even if they are are born in the same year in gregorian calendar.
