Today is unofficially the “Lets Celebrate Wildlife Day”, and in honor of this occasion, we decided to commemorate the 12 Spirit Animals of the Chinese Zodiac and the specific traits that reflect on you.


1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008

People generally see you as adaptable, smart, cautious, acute, and positive. You probably work in the service, economy or finance industry; if you don’t, you’re probably the person everyone relies on for thinking out of the box.

On the downside, sometimes you tend to be very picky and stubborn.



1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009


Ox people tend to be practical, simple and honest. You are very straightforward and normally run away from drama as fast as you can. You don’t talk a lot, but when you do it’s very direct. That’s why people rely on you for thoughtful decisions.

On the downside, because you like to keep to yourself, sometimes you tend to be obstinate and distant.



1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010

You are generally perceived as tolerant, trustworthy and loyal. You believe in hard work and generally don’t shy off when it comes to showing your accomplishments. People know when they ask you to keep a secret, you actually will.

On the other hand, sometimes you come off as arrogant, and with that short temper that characterizes you, it doesn’t take much to throw you off balance.



1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011


When people think of you, they see an image of love, tenderness, and romanticism. You don’t like confrontations and are know for converting enemies into friends. Because you are so hospitable, people love coming to your home.

The same loving attributes lead you to get your heart broken easily, and because you are very stubborn it’s very hard for you to let go.



1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012


You are a very lively person! Decision making comes easily to you and you are not afraid of challenges. Because of this, you like to take leadership positions that involve meaningful changes.

On the other hand, your confidence sometimes transforms into over-confidence leading you to short-sightedness and unrealistic decisions.



1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013


You are a smart and very sensitive person. This doesn’t mean emotional, more in the sense that you are aware of your surroundings and how people are feeling. Because of this, your empathy levels tend to be very high, and people tend to look for you when they’re in need of advice.

On the downside, you tend to be very suspicious of everyone and everything making it hard to find people you can trust.



1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002


You are a very charming person, warm-hearted and easy going. It takes a lot for anyone to get on your bad side, that’s why you tend to have a lot of friends. You don’t give up easily and always look at the positive side of things.

On the other hand, you are not very good at keeping secrets, and people know that. Because you are a social butterfly you tend to overspend and overindulge on situations that are not necessarily aligned with your true desires.



1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003


People perceive you as very polite, clever and kind-hearted. You are the most likely to help everyone out, even if they are not really close friends or family. You value hard work and tend to be very frugal when spending money.

Ironically, even when you help everyone else, when it comes to yourself you tend to be very pessimistic. Hesitation is your enemy and because of this opportunities sometimes pass you by.



1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004


You are a very smart and cunning person, especially when it comes to matters of money and business. Obstacles are fun challenges and you will keep going until you figure it out. Your gentleness and honesty tend to bring you lifetime friendships.

Of all the Chinese Zodiac Animals, you are the most jealous.  When you feel threatened, insecurity tends to arise leading you to hot-tempered decisions.



1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005


You are a very honest, bright, and ambitious person. You like to enjoy the good things in life and like to dress up just for the fun of it. When it comes to getting things done, you’d rather do it yourself than wait for someone else to do it.

On the other hand, you tend to be very impatient and impulsive, making it hard to work with others.



1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006

Congratulations, 2018 is your year! Out of all the Zodiac animals you are the most loyal, sincere, and decisive. Because of these traits, you tend to have a lot of well-balanced relationships making you quite the social butterfly.

On the opposite side, you tend to be oversensitive which can sometimes lead to drama. You also can be very stubborn.



1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007

You are a very considerate, optimistic, and independent person. Your empathy levels are the most developed of all, and because of this, you are able to show mercy and gratefulness in all your relationships.

On the downside, you are also a master procrastinator leading to a lot of incomplete projects.
