The Chinese calendar has attracted a global following thanks in large part to the Lunar animal aspect of its structure. Every year, the calendar features a new animal for 12 years before beginning the cycle again. According to custom, the traits associated with the animal in your birth year will correspond to your temperament. If you were born in the Year of the Snake, you may be determined, intuitive, and wise.
