The Year 2012 for the Chinese is called the Year of the Water Dragon. In the Chinese Zodiac, astrological years are cyclical and they repeat every twelve years. Each of the twelve Chinese zodiac signs is represented by an animal, representing the characteristics and personality traits of a person born in that year.
There are twelve of them. Each of the 12 animal signs corresponds to a lunar year, with each sign also having 5 elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal & Water). In certain years, particular elements are more prominent. For instance this year, 2012, the 'water' element is very prominent. So therefore, this year 2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon. The special combination of the Sign and Element only occurs once every 60 years.
As Chinese Astrology is one of the oldest types of Astrology, the origin of naming the years after animals is unknown. However, according to a popular legend, it says that Buddha (c.563-c.483 B.C) invited all the animals to visit him, and as a demonstration of thanks to those who came, he dedicated a year to each of the animals according to the order in which they arrived: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
It is believed that the year you were born in greatly influences your personality. In Universal Psychic Guild Chinese Horoscopes and Astrology Service, to determine your Chinese Astrology sign, just locate your birth year from the list provided.
