Track 11 The Chinese Zodiac
The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12 year cycle, each year of which is named after a different
animal that imparts distinct characteristics to its year.. Many Chinese believe that the
year of a person's birth is the primary factor in determining that person's personality traits,
physical and mental attributes and degree of success and happiness throughout his or
her lifetime. The following short summaries give the basic characteristics of each sign.
The Rabbit is the luckiest of all signs. People born under this sign are often talented and
articulate. They are affectionate yet shy. They seek peace throughout their lives.
The Year of the Tiger produces aggressive courageous people. They can be very candid
yet they themselves are on the sensitive side.
Those who have the sign of the Ox are bright patient people who are inspiring to others.
They can be happy by themselves, yet make outstanding parents.
Those born in the year of the Rat are ambitious yet honest. They are prone to spending freely
and seldom make lasting friendships.
Eccentric passionate people are born under the Dragon sign. Their lives are often complex
and they have an abundance of good health. The year of the Snake produces wise and intense
people who are likely to have physical beauty which in turn can make them vain and high
tempered.
Those born during the year of the Horse are usually popular and attractive to the opposite
sex. They are often ostentatious and impatient. They need to be around other people.
People born under the sign of the Sheep are elegant and creative. They are somewhat timid
and prefer anonymity.

many things, The Rooster represents a pioneer in spirit, someone devoted to work who quests
after knowledge. They can sometimes be selfish and unorthodox.
People with the Dog sign are loyal and honest and work well with others. They are generous

being noble and chivalrous and having life long friends, yet these individuals often
have marital strife.
