About the 12 Zodiacs

The Chinese Zodiac circle has 12 animals that first were seen way back in the Zhan Guo era which was the 5th century B.C. – yep that’s a while ago. The exact date is actually not known as of when the zodiac was born.

The zodiac was a way to know a person’s birth year during the North Zhou Dynasty. The zodiac is actually calculated by a cycle of some sixty years as each different animal represents a different year.

FYI – every one of the 12 animals signifies for one year in a 12-year period, a day in the a 12-day period, and for each two hours in a 24-hour period – pretty cool huh.
