Chinese zodiac sign meanings: What does your Chinese zodiac sign reveal about YOU?
The Chinese zodiac is a little like the astrology signs we all know so well, but it categorises us in our year of birth rather than the month of birth. Each cycle of the lunar year, which starts in February, is represented by a different animal. Those born in that year are supposed to behave in a way similar to that animal. With the help of ChineseZodiac.com, Express.co.uk talks you through the Chinese zodiac sign meanings.

What does your Chinese zodiac sign reveal about YOU?
Nobody wants to hear they are a Rat because they aren’t the most popular creature on earth.
However, according to the Chinese zodiac, Rats are clever, funny, and witty.
Those born on the year of the Rat are great friends, loyal, and generous.
However, Rats have a seedier side and can be fixated on money.
They can be greedy and gossip a lot.
The first thing you think of when you hear ‘Ox’ is strength.
Oxes are strong, ambitious, great leaders, and really hard working.
However, sometimes they’re a little too stubborn and serious.
While Ox has family and friends that they can rely on and they’re great partners, they still find themselves feeling lonely.
Chinese zodiac sign meanings: The rat doesn’t have to have negative connotations
Tigers are stunning creatures, and those born on a year of the Tiger have the same quality.
They’re extremely charming, seductive, and natural leaders.
However, don’t cross a Tiger because they will pounce as soon as they catch you out.
Tigers are quite flighty and their mood tends to change often.
Who doesn’t love rabbits? People born during Rabbit years are extremely popular.
You’ll find a Rabbit relaxing at home or going out with friends.
Rabbits are always there for you when you’re down, and they have a great network of friends and family to support them too.
However, Rabbits don’t like conflict and they can sometimes let people walk all over them.
Dragons are bossy, fiery, and will do whatever it takes to succeed.
Dragon is a really powerful sign in terms of their career and their personal life.
Kind, popular, adored, and confident… the Dragon has it all!
Be careful not to get too cocky though, Dragon!

You’d think being a Snake means you are conniving and untrustworthy, but that is not true.
While Snake signs can be a little insecure and jealous, they’re really generous people.
A snake is seductive, they’ll lure you in with their charm and pretty things.
Snakes are a great judge of character, they are concerned with finance, and they’re always thinking about your next move.
Horses love to wander and explore, so you’ll often find a Horse travelling abroad or spontaneously booking trips.
They’re free spirits, energetic, and really independent.
Horses are friendly and they love being in love.
The one negative is Horses can be seen as unreliable because they love being alone.
Goats are extremely independent and they have a deep need to be alone to think.
This overthinking can make Goats quite high-strung, emotional, and insecure.
Goats naturally have anxiety and you’ll need to often reassure them they are loved.
However, Goats are creative minds and don’t like to be told what to do.
Chinese zodiac sign meanings: Snakes aren’t ALL slimey
Monkeys are all about having fun and letting their hair down.
This is great because it is a pleasure to be around a Monkey at a party, but they lack self-control.
Monkeys can be quite selfish and greedy since they are only concerned about their own pleasure.
It’s difficult to get a Monkey to commit to a plan or a relationship– they’ll decide what best suits them in the moment.
Roosters are reliable and practical.
They listen and observe before they speak, and when they say something everyone listens.
Roosters are extremely honest and don’t sugar coat what they have to tell you.
However, they can be hard on themselves and are too concerned with perfection
Chinese zodiac sign meanings: Monkeys love having fun
The one thing everyone says about Dogs is that they are loyal.
You can always trust a Dog to be there when you need them.
However, being around a Dog is like being on a roller coaster– there are lots of emotional up and downs.
Dogs can be very sensitive and sometimes lie to get out of doing things.
Pigs are friendly and generous.
They’re clever and have a thirst for knowledge.
You may think a Pig is too polite to put you in your place, but they will get revenge if you betray them.
Pigs love luxury and treating themselves, but they aren’t judgemental.
