If you like my website, and/or if you've found it useful, please consider making a small donation to my Just Giving page, which I've set up just for this purpose. To begin with I'm collecting for a charity whose work I have benefitted from myself (and continue to do so): the British Heart Foundation. It would be great to raise £100 in the first month.

If you already have donated ... Thank You!

Chinese Astrology

The Chinese New Year can fall on any day between the following two dates, with equal probability:

The following table gives the Chinese astrological signs for the years beginning in the Gregorian years from 1917 to 2024. This is expected to cover the years of birth of most visitors to this website.  (If you were born outside this range, please get in touch – I would be delighted to hear from you!)

You can of course work out the sign for other years by adding or subtracting a multiple of 12 as appropriate.  For example, 1910 has the same sign as 1922 which is the Dog.
