Welcome to Part 2 of our look at Chinese Astrology by Psychic Arthur. In this installment, Arthur will help you figure out your Chinese Zodiac sign and explain what it means to you!

In Chinese astrology, your Ben Ming Nian (Zodiac Year of Birth) tells more than just your age. Each year is associated with a Chinese Zodiac animal sign, as well as, one of the Five Elements: Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, or Earth. It is believed that both the sign and element of your birth year affects your personality and destiny. Like Western astrological signs, Chinese Zodiac animals take into account the general characteristics and traits of each animal when it comes to compatibility in love, business and partnerships. However, unlike Western Zodiac Signs, the Chinese Zodiac animals are not associated with constellations.

This year, The Chinese New Year begins on February 8, 2016. According to the Chinese calendar, the element for this year is Fire, which is also represented by the color Red. So this is The Year of the Red Fire Monkey.

Check the chart to find your Chinese Zodiac animal and learn all about the traits and personality of various animals, as well as, their Lucky Numbers and Colors.

Note: If you were born in January or February you need to check if your birthday was before or after the date of that Chinese New Year. If it was before this day your animal is the one shown for the previous year.
