The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12 year
cycle, each year of which is named after a
different animal that imparts distinct
characteristics to its year. Many Chinese
believe that the year of a person's birth is
the primary factor in determining that
person's personality traits, physical and
mental attributes, and degree of success and
happiness throughout his or her lifetime.
