Chinese Sign

A Chinese year generally begins with the second new-moon day after the winter solstice. The Chinese New Year’s day, therefore, is movable — just as Easter Day, which is also tributary of the moon — and takes place somewhere between January 21st and February 20th according to astronomic circumstances.
The Chinese zodiac is a cycle of twelve Chinese years placed under the signs of the twelve following symbolic animals: Rat, Ox (Buffalo), Tiger, Rabbit (Cat), Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat (or Sheep or Ram), Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig (or Boar).
