2017 - The Year of Rooster

Lunar Calendar and Animal Signs

In the lunar calendar, the beginning of a month coincides with the appearance of the New Moon and each month has 29 days. In this way, a lunar year of twelve months would be shorter than the solar year of 365 days, causing the lunar month to shift around the seasons. To avoid this, a leap month is added every two and a half years to synchronize the lunar calendar with the solar cycle. This is similar to the Gregorian Calendar, where one leap day is added every four years. The difference between lunar and solar year is also the reason why the Chinese New Year's Day - also known as Spring Festival - moves slightly between January and February in the solar calendar. If you are born in these months you must check the Chinese calendar carefully.

Please, look in the following list to find your correct year of birth and personal animal sign of the Chinese Zodiac! The list gives the date of the Chinese New Year's Day in the common solar calendar.

Example: if you are born in 1940 earlier than Feb. 8th (according to solar calendar) your animal sign is rabbit, if you are born on Feb. 8th or later in that year your animal sign is dragon.

For animal signs of other years you can use the Chinese Calendar Converter or simply add multiples of twelve to one of the years given.
