Year of the Snake-The ancient Chinese people developed a sophisticated science of astrology that continues to have a profound influence in China today. Rooted in the fundamentals of Taoism, it evolved into a system vastly different from Western astrology. Rather than determining personality by the time of year in which you were born, Taoist astrology focuses on the year itself to determine one’s character. The years form a twelve-year cycle of signs, each named after an animal. Each lunar year is depicted by a characteristic animal trait; your birth year determines your dominant animal sign.
