Chinese follows the lunar calendar with 12 animal signs, more known as the Chinese Zodiac, as a cycle. The 12 animals are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. From January 28, 2017, until February 15, 2018, we are celebrating the Fire Rooster Year.

If you believe in Horoscope, we think you should give Chinese Zodiac a try. Not only your birth sign will tell you your personality, but it can help also predict your fortune throughout the year.
