Chinese Traditional Fans

What's Zodiac in Chinese Culture?

In Chinese culture, the Zodiac is a system that is based on a twelve-year cycle, with each year being associated with a specific animal. These animals include the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

Each animal is said to have certain characteristics and traits that are associated with it. For example, the Rat is known for being quick-witted and resourceful, while the Ox is known for being strong and dependable. People born in a certain year are believed to inherit these characteristics, and their fortunes and personalities are said to be influenced by the animal associated with their birth year.

The Chinese Zodiac is used in many aspects of Chinese culture, including astrology, fortune telling, and even in everyday life. For example, some people may choose to name their children based on their Zodiac animal, or consult their Zodiac when making important decisions such as when to get married or start a business.
