Your sign is the Tiger

What’s so good about tigers? Think about tigers. They’re strong but a bit mysterious. It’s the same for those born under this sign. They are stable and hold in their feelings, although when they decide to act they do so suddenly.

Your sign is the Dragon

What’s so good about dragons? Much like the mythical beast, a dragon can be extreme – things tend to go very well or completely fail for them. This just gives them a balanced view of the world, and a strong sense of morals.

You were born 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013

Your sign is the Snake

What’s so good about snakes? You can tell a snake what to do, but they’d rather find out themselves. It can look as though they’re distrustful, but they are just living life to their own plan. For all that, though, they don’t like to be alone.

You were born 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014

Your sign is the Horse

What’s so good about horses? You’ll never wonder what a horse means. They’re very straightforward, getting across their own point of view but patient while listening to others’. They’re also incredibly loyal and make great friends and partners.

You were born 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003

Your sign is the Goat (Sheep)

What’s so good about goats and sheep? They find comfort in forming habits and good planning – there’s generally nothing impulsive about this sign. You’ll need to earn a goat’s trust before they let you into their life, but once there it should be smooth sailing.

You were born 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004

Your sign is the Monkey

What’s so good about monkeys? When an opportunity comes the way of a monkey, he grabs on to it. Life, for them, is all about action and learning along the way. Sometimes this works out for the best; other times not so much. As they get older, monkeys channel this energy into new careers and hobbies.

You were born 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005

Your sign is the Rooster

What’s so good about roosters? Why does the rooster crow in the morning? It’s instinct, and people born under this sign should let this guide them. It allows the rooster to get on with life, rather than overthink everything. Because if they get caught in their own heads, they can lose sight of the big picture.

You were born 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006

Your sign is the Dog

What’s so good about dogs? That person who always seems lost in thought? He’s probably a dog. Intelligent, deep and blessed with a rich inner life, dogs tend to live a fairly serious existence. They don’t see the need to impress others and follow their own paths.

You were born 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007

Your sign is the Pig

What’s so good about pigs? They’re such gentle beings, beautiful pigs, and they are acutely aware of what’s going on in both their own lives and those of the people around them. They’re empathetic, easy to talk to and, should they drift from their path, with a little focus can steer themselves back.
