The 12 Chinese zodiac animals

Each of the 12 animals (or signs) of the Chinese zodiac are associated with the cyclical rotation of the 5 elements of Chinese cosmology (Wu Xing), changing every sixty years  (12 x 5 = 60 years for the 12 signs, 5 x 2 = 10 years for the 5 elements that follow each other in pairs, with a Yang then Yin polarity).According to the Chinese zodiac, every year, every month, every day and every hour are directly associated with a Chinese zodiac animal and a corresponding element. Each of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs also possess their own embedded set of elements.The relationships between the five elements of Chinese astrology and the Chinese zodiac animals are mainly linked to creation, filiation and destruction cycles.

The Chinese calendar

The Chinese zodiac 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 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 February 4.

Chinese pregnancy calendar

According to Chinese astrology, you can determine the sex of your baby with the Chinese calendar baby gender predictor.

The Chinese calendar can also serve as a pregnancy calendar for any expectant mother who wishes to ensure upstream parent-child compatibility of her baby with her and her husband or companion. To do this, first check the compatibility of your Chinese zodiac sign with the zodiac sign corresponding to the Chinese animal of the year during which you are planning the birth of your boy or girl.

According to the Chinese calendar 2018 and 2019, children born between February 16, 2018 and February 4, 2019 are of the Chinese zodiac sign of the Dog, while those born between February 5, 2019 and January 23, 2019 are of the Chinese zodiac sign of the Pig (Boar). From February 5, 2020 until February 11, 2021, children born during this period are of the Year of the Rat (Mouse).

* In Chinese astrology, doubled months (or intercalary months) are inserted into the Chinese lunar calendar approximately every 3 years. It's a calculation system whose purpose is to readjust the writing of the calendar, due to the lag caused by the fractional numbers of days that exist for each lunation (whose average duration is 29.530588 days), in relation to the fractional number of days found for a full year (365,2422 days), and with the number of lunations that exist in a year (from 12 to 13 lunations).
