Legends and mythology are a big part of Chinese culture, especially in relation to the Chinese Zodiac. The 12 animals that appear on the Chinese Zodiac calendar include rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and boar. It's an unusual combination of animals for sure, and their appearance on the Chinese Zodiac is the topic of countless legends and is deeply embedded in Chinese mythology. Along with birth year animals, the Chinese Zodiac also represents inner animals and secret animals. We're probably all aware of the 12 animals or signs depicted on the Chinese Zodiac. Based on our year of birth, we understand that we're born under the sign of the Dragon, or the tiger, or one of the 10 other signs. But the truth is it's the inner animals and the secret animals that actually tell the most about who we really are and what our futures hold.
