The astrology system which is derived from the Hellenistic astrology and is based on the relative positions of, particularly, the twelve zodiacal constellations on the moment of a person's birth.
Similar to Western astrology that uses twelve signs such as Aquarius, Aries, Taurus, etc., there are twelve signs in Chinese astrology that are depicted by animals.
Unlike western astrology that uses the solar year calendar, most Chinese astrologers use a lunar calendar and base their calculations solely on the moon's cycles.
Each astrology sign in Western astrology is associated with certain traits.
Each of the twelve animal signs falls into an animal trine and is associated with a person's birth year rather than their birth date as in Western astrology.
Although it may sound like something different, a star sign is your horoscope sign in Western astrology.
