Editor's note: Unlike Western astrology, the Chinese Zodiac, which is known as Sheng Xiao in Chinese, is a rotating cycle of 12 years, with each year represented by an animal and its reputed attributes. Each animal is associated with different personality traits, and our blogger from Nigeria, who goes by the online name of "Objchina," shares his knowledge on the Chinese Zodiac signs to help you know more about your traits as per Chinese astrology. You are welcome to leave your comments if you are interested in the topic.
