    As it's Chinese New Year tomorrow, I thought I'd add this thread for a bit of fun!
    Your zodiac animal is based on the year you were born, so refer to the table below!



    I'm a Rooster, or a **** :mmm:

    So, which one are you?

    As the noble animal symbol that represents the Chinese emperors, Dragons are born leaders and masters of ceremonies. And because of this, every Chinese parent is hoping to have a Dragon child. Dragon people get things started and keep them moving. They are feisty and gifted with power and luck. Most people look up to the Dragon. Dragons are born monarchs. As far as they can see, their power is indisputable. Dragons are idealists, perfectionists, they are born thinking they are perfect and they are inflexible. Dragons are also aggressive and determined, going after what they want is second nature to them. And due to their hunger for power, Dragons are not well suited to growing old. The prospect of losing power, the helpless feeling of youthful strength ebbing away is unbearable to them. Irritable and stubborn, the Dragon is a real big mouth and their words often outrun their thoughts. Nevertheless, their opinions are worth listening to and their advice is always good. People do, in fact, listen to them and their influence is considerable. They Dragon is over-proud. They are enthusiastic to the point of impetuosity, and they lose their temper easily. Dragons are dauntless, dynamic and delightful. When a Dragon enters a gathering, the room starts to simmer. The Dragon carries a self-assurance so impressive, and inflated ego so visible and a mouth so loud that it is useless to try to tell him anything. Dragons are tyrannical. They hate orders except when they are giving them. Unlike the Tiger, who imposes their will seriously and firmly, the Ox, whose authority is implied in their very stern demeanor, or the Rat, who thrusts their dominion over others, the Dragon knows innately how to exert authority yet be gentle with their slaves(<--- ooohh kinky). Dragons are terrible snobs. Although money is not always the object, they are slavishly impressed by wealth, prestige, rank and splendor. The Dragon is gifted, intelligent, tenacious, willing and generous. They can do anything. No matter whether the Dragon chooses an artistic career, medical or political one, they are going to shine in it. They will be a success wherever they go. The Dragon is often loved. They are never disappointed in love. In fact, they are frequently the cause of some drama of despair. The women of this sign are surrounded by admirers and often demanded in marriage. (<---LOL)

    I tell myself I don't believe in this stuff, but the Asian side of me is like "My horoscope says that this week is supposed to be a week of fortune. I will also meet my mortal enemy and long lost friend."
    Apparently I will meet a marriage partner but I'm still on TSR so we both know that won't happen.

    The chart is wrong because the Chinese don't use the same year system as the West, which is the exact reason their New Years is completely different to ours. I thought that would have been pretty obvious.

    They use the lunar calendar not the solar calendar.

    The correct dates are here.

    Do you ever read into the Chinese horoscopes? I do it for a laugh and it's actually my year this year so I'll "believe" it for just this year :rofl:
    Actually the god of the year hates people born of the sign of the year, so you'll either make amends with the god for having been born or have bad luck this year.

    Also, they're not based on western years, so if you were born in January or February, you could be the animal the year before.
