A fun aspect of Feng Shui is to discover what your Chinese sign is, what your tendencies are, and what your strongest colors are. Just like in Western Astrology, there are 12 astrological signs/animals in Chinese astrology.
Here are the 12 signs in order. Each sign represents certain characteristics, so when you’re born in a certain year, you will tend to display the characteristics of that animal. We can also find clues as to what kinds of events will happen during a particular year, both personally and in the political scene.
So here are the signs and some general characteristics of each one.
