RABBIT! It’s my year!

KRD's avatar

I was born in the year of the ox. I found out that 2020 was the year of the rat. I find that funny.

@KRD , What’s so funny about year of the rat? That’s my year.
I read somewhere that the Chinese have a preference for having their children born in the year of the dragon, which they regard as special.

@ragingloli , There is no year of the cat, but there is a year of the tiger.

@LostInParadise and @ragingloli The cat is the same year as the rabbit. Some Chinese astrologers use the term cat, and others use rabbit.

I just feel like a cat. Wanting to laze around all day.
Anyway, telling you my actual chinese zodiac would be a personal identifier, and I am not giving anyone that.

I was born in the year of the goat.

Vietnam celebrates the Year of the Cat this year.

Evidently I’m a Year of the Ox. Does that mean something? Is it like western astrology where a symbol supposedly implies vague and nonspecific character traits that everyone actually has but makes a person think “Oh, that’s me to a T!”?

I don’t really follow this stuff.

Monkey. No idea what that means.

Monkey. My dad used to call me a monkey when I was little so it made sense to me when I first learned I was a Monkey according to the Chinese zodiac. When I was young some of the Chinese restaurants had the different birth years and animals on the paper placemats.

If I remember correctly Monkey is an earth sign, I am an earth sign according to my horoscope also. Monkeys are clever and adaptable, and I think their lucky number is nine, which coincidentally is my husband’s lucky number.

People born in a year of the Rooster are very observant. Hardworking, resourceful, courageous, and talented, Roosters are very confident in themselves.
Active, amusing, and popular within a crowd. Roosters are talkative, outspoken, frank, open, honest, and loyal individuals. They like to be the center of attention and always appear attractive and beautiful. yep that’s me :)

Monkey. Which explains my penchant for throwing poo.

Year of the ox.

LadyMarissa's avatar

I was born in the year of the Tiger; however due to the fact that I was born early in the year, I’m considered an Earth OX. I think I remember that I missed being a Tiger by 1 week.

JLeslie's avatar

^^Oh wait. I was born the first week of January.

Tiger

It fits even less than whatever astrology is used in America.
