What's my Chinese sign? Discover your Chinese zodiac animal and element according to the Chinese calendar

The Chinese calendar is based on the cycles of the Moon, while the Western calendar (or Gregorian calendar) is a solar calendar.

As such, the Chinese lunar years have different start and end dates from the classic Gregorian calendar, when New Year's Day is on January 1st. The beginning and ending dates below give you the exact duration of each Chinese Year, translated into Gregorian calendar dates, allowing you to identify which animal (or sign) you belong to, with your date of birth.

While Lunar New Year's Day, used in Chinese astrology and to determine your Chinese zodiac sign, changes every year, remember that this is not the case of the Luo Shu square system traditionally used in Feng Shui. The astrological year of this 9 years cycle system, always begins on 4 February.
