Chinese New Year 2016 Animal

According to the traditional Chinese luni-solar calendar, one year comprises of 12 months of 29 or 30 days. To plot this with respect to the length of the solar year, minor alterations are made. 

The years are believed to be arranged in cycles of 60, and each successive year is named after an animal. This system of assigning an animal to a year finds mention in Chinese folklore and mythology. 2016 is the Year of the Sheep. It is believed that a person born in any year has characteristics similar to the animal that heads the year.

Each animal is assigned one of the five elements of the Earth. Horse takes to Wood. Water and fire being conflicting characters, the year 2016 will be full of contradictions.

People born in the year of the horse are perceived by others as calculative and cautious. In reality a horse person feels comfortable when she/he can chalk out everything to the minutest details. She/he is blessed with communication skills, if she/he chooses to use it. In general, a Horse person is lively, bright and are known for their physical strength. Confident and sensitive, they can achieve a lot if and when they set out to achieve their goal.
