The Chinese astrology birth chart has four columns. The DAY column represents the person. If your DAY column is Metal Tiger, then you should be a Metal Tiger. The upper row of DAY column is Metal - This is the element of YOU. We call it DAY MASTER.

Metal is afraid of Fire. Fire gives Metal the pressure. So Fire represents pressure or job to you. Earth can protect Metal. So Earth presents parents. Metal can overcome the Wood, Wood stands for your money.... This the way to make astrology prediction.

The links there just want to tell people, when you were born in late January or early February, you have to know your animal sign is not determined by Chinese New Year Day.

When people ask you Chinese Zodiac Sign, you can say you are monkey.
This is because that 90% of people use their birth year to find the sign.
Master Tsai, the Chinese Zodiac Sign 屬相 is 100% based on the lunar calendar. All Chinese astrology is based on the lunar calendar, therefore, you need to convert your birthdate to the lunar calendar date and year using a 万年历 (10,000 year almanac). Nowadays, this is easily done online. You then derive the 8 characters of the I-Ching that is the code of your destiny. A I-Ching master or fortune-teller tries to hone his skills in interpreting those combinations, but the code doesn't change from one fortuneteller to another, just like your birthday doesn't change...

Zodiac animals are for fun, not for serious divination. But they are also based on the lunar calendar. There are 12 of them multiplied to 5 elements, making a cycle of 60 years.

Re: Hello,what's Your Chinese Zodiac Sign?

China didnít have western solar calendar until late Ming Dynasty (around 1600). Chinese astrology is more than two thousand years old. Itís true that Chinese used lunar calendar for astrology before Ching Dynasty (1644-1911).

Chinese calendar combines three cycle systems, which are lunar calendar, solar calendar and stem-branch calendar. The Chinese solar calendar is different from western Gregorian calendar. The Chinese solar calendar is for farmers to follow the changes of seasons. There are 24 solar segments in a year. The first day of spring is always around February 4th. Those 24 solar segments are widely used in Chinese Famerís Almanac.

http://chinesefortunecalendar.com/clc/LunarCalendar.htm

Many people, including most of Chinese, think Chinese Famerís Almanac calendar is a pure lunar calendar. This is not correct, because 24 solar segments comes from the Sun, not Moon.

Chinese have more than one astrology systems. Most of them need the lunar calendar. But when they build the four-pillars (8 Characters) birth chart, they use the 24 solar segments time to determine the astrological month, not lunar time (new moon).

Before Ching Dynasty, Chinese society used lunar calendar. When they built the four-pillars birth chart, they had to convert to solar calendar to find the 24 segments. ( They don't have to convert. They observed the sun position and angel on the sky to a tree or a house to determine the solar time.) Today, we use western solar calendar. We just tell computer the cycle of the sun on the tropical zodiac, then the computer can build the four-pillars birth chart for us.

My point is 24 solar segments in Farmerís Almanac is solar calendar, not the lunar calendar.
We build birth chart using 24 solar segments, which is the one in the famerís almanac.

If people want to use lunar calendar for 12 animal zodiac, thatís fine. But we should tell people that is less accurate, not for serious divination.

Also, we have to know the 10,000 year almanac published in China (GMT+8) cannot be used for people born in USA. The reason is that different time zone might have different new moon day. One day difference causes a big issue to determine the Lunar Leap Month.

The elders in China still observe the farmer's calendar, and traditionally, birth dates are noted in the lunar calendar (this is still true today in many areas of China). The farmer's calendar is a combination of lunar and solar calendar. I used "lunar" because in the common every day language, we say Yin Calendar (as relates to the moon, the Yin), which is indeed partially inaccurate.

Thus for a Westerner, they need to convert and observe Chinese New Year cutoff for their animal zodiac, just saying. In practice, it's a bit indelicate and awkward to ask someone else's Chinese zodiac sign, esp. if you are facing a lady, because you are indeed asking for her age.

Until seeing this link I'd always thought I was a metal monkey, but that was "divined" from a paper kids menu when I was very young so lol. The chart linked here says:

Day: Male Wood
Green Dog

Month: Male Wood
Green Monkey

Year: Male Metal

Re: Hello,what's Your Chinese Zodiac Sign?

I had no idea that birth DAY was important as the birth year?!?! I read some books on Chinese and Japanese (essentially the same) astrology and always thought I was just a wooden goat/sheep which actually corresponds well to my Virgo sun sign.

Now this site says I'm a red tiger born in the year of brown sheep...oh well
