    Description

    Consisting of twelve animals, the Chinese zodiac first appeared in the 5th century B.C., during the Zhan Guo period.  The zodiac became a popular way to determine a person’s birth year and is still used today.

    The zodiac was based on Chinese astrology and was used as a way to count years, months, days, and hours in the calendar. It was formed from two components: the Celestial Stem and the Terrestrial Branch. Each of the 12 animals stands for a year in a 12-year cycle, a day in the 12-day cycle, and for every two hours in a 24-hour day. These were used to name each year along with the animal signs, but now they mainly just use the dates.
