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.
