The ancient Chinese people developed a sophisticated science of astrology that continues to have a profound influence in China today. Rooted in the fundamentals of Taoism, it evolved into a system vastly different from Western astrology. Rather than determining personality by the time of year in which you were born, Taoist astrology focuses on the year itself to determine one's character. The years form a twelve-year cycle of signs, each named after an animal. Each lunar year is depicted by a characteristic animal trait; your birth year determines your dominant animal sign. The 12 animals that appear on the Chinese Zodiac calendar include rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and boar.
Chinese Zodiac Symbol - Monkey: Those born in the Shen years are gifted and bright, active and clever, good at competition, nimble and chivalrous, quick in reaction and act according to the situation. They are highly sociable and good in comprehension, easily merged with others, but dislike to be controlled by others and prefer fresh things. They are clever, full of wit, innovative, good at speaking, and have a strong desire of showing off. They are very fit to be actors or promotion traders. They have strong desires in pursuing knowledge, read books of broad subjects, and have a wonderful memory. They are flexible and creative, and have a strong feeling to their elder members of the family, but the relation between husband and wife may be tense or disturbed.
