About the Chinese Zodiac
The Chinese Zodiac is based on a 12-year cycle, the time it takes Jupiter to travel around the sun. During the Han Dynasty (202BC-220AD) each Zodiac year was paired to an animal to represent the qualities of people born in that year. The Zodiac has played an important role in Chinese culture for over 2 millennia. Its animal symbols have been used in stories and folklore, and are considered to be a window into your personality and foreteller of prospects in love, luck, relationships, and success.
