Conversely, they can have very short tempers, yet they garner respect from those around them. Sometimes, they can have issues with those in authority, and also have a tendency be indecisive, which can work out badly or very well. They are a suspicious breed, however they are very powerful and courageous.

The Dragon: (born 1964, 1976, 1988) Those who are dragons are as energetic, short-tempered, healthy and excitable as the name suggests. They are very honest and brave, and inspire trust in others, but are very eccentric. They can also be very easily won over, though, which can make them easily taken advantage of.

The Snake: (born 1965, 1977, 1989) Those who are snakes are much like the Tiger, in that they are truly deep people. They also say very little and yet are very wise and financially successful. They can be very sympathetic for others, but also can be selfish and stingy. They are very intense people even if they seem calm on the surface.

The Horse: (born 1966, 1978, 1990) Known for being popular, horses are chatty and perceptive, but known for being cheerful and fun to talk to.

The Ram: (Born 1967, 1979, 1991) These individuals are skilled in the arts and elegant naturally. They can seem to be better off than other years, but they can be very puzzled, pessimistic, shy and uncertain about themselves. Deeply religious and passionate about what they believe in, rams are very gentle, compassionate and wise.

The Rat: (born 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996) Those born as the Rat are given accolades for a natural charm and ease of attraction for members of the opposite sex. As hard workers and perfectionists, they typically have great ambitions and often find themselves very successful. They can also be very money-thrifty and enjoy acquiring possessions.

The Monkey: (Born 1968, 1980, 1992) Monkeys are the very definition of genius in the face of insanity. Very clever, flexible, easily adaptive and original, monkeys can get out of any mess. The only problem is that they tend start things, become distracted, and leave projects unfinished, and also can be a little too agreeable.

The Rabbit: (born 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999) Rabbits are very talented and ambitious individuals, who are reserved, articulate and also very ambitious. As trusted, reserved individuals who don’t often lose their tempers, rabbits are clever and lucky just like their namesake.
