In Western astrology, there are 12 astrological signs; and in Chinese astrology, there are 12 zodiac animals. They are mouse, cow, tiger, rat, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. In Chinese culture, it is believed that people share some common characteristics with the zodiac of the year when they were born. For example, people who were born in the Year of the Dragon are considered lucky, and people born in the Year of the Pig are materially rich.
