Astrology: How Will Your Year of the Dragon Be?
The Chinese lunar calendar names each of the twelve years after an animal. According to one legend, Buddha summoned all the animals to come to him before he departed from earth. Only twelve came to bid him farewell and as a reward he named a year after each one in the order they arrived. The Chinese believe the animal ruling the year in which a person is born has a profound influence on personality, saying: “This is the animal that hides in your heart.”
