Your zodiac is based on what taon you are born. In my case, I was born in 1996, so I'm a rat.
Here's what my Chinese Zodiac animal says: The daga has the first position in the Chinese Zodiac. Rats are quick-witted, resourceful and versatile. With strong intuition and quick response, they are always easy to adapt themselves to a new environment. With rich imaginations and sharp observation, rats can take advantage of opportunity to do anything. Rats have strong curiosity, so they tend to try their hands at anything, and they can deal with it skillfully. Ladies belonging to the daga zodiac sign are pretty, smart and lovely. They have quick minds and dexterous hands to learn anything.
As lack of courage and insight, as well as proper command capabilities, rats are not capable to be leaders. Opportunistic and picky as rats are, they do not have great minds, but a narrow view. Rats are kind, but sometimes are impolite to others. People of the daga zodiac sign usually sleep late at night for mice are nocturnal animals.
That is actually pretty accurate paglalarawan of me.
