2016 Chinese Horoscopes

Jan 25, 2016

According to Chinese culture, 12 signs of the zodiac (represented by 12 animals) characterize certain years. Your zodiac sign will be the animal that symbolized the year during which you were born; for example, babies born in 2016 will be represented by the monkey, because 2016 is the year of the monkey. Don't worry, even if you're not a monkey there's still a lot you can learn from your zodiac sign. Take a look at your 2016 horoscope below!
