Chinese zodiac signs, also known as Shengxiao in Chinese, is a scheme, which uses Twelve Earthly Branches and 12 animals to symbolize the year when a person is born.

中国的属相,用汉语又称为生肖,它是用十二地支和十二种动物来象征一个人的出生之年的一个体制。

The cycle of the Chinese zodiac signs is every 12 years. Zodiac is prevalent among many countries in Asia, Eastern Europe, North Africa and so on.

中国生肖循环周期是每十二年一次。生肖在亚洲,东欧,北非的许多国家间流行。

The zodiac traditionally begins with the sign of the Rat.

习惯上生肖以鼠为始。

The twelve zodiac signs are Rat, Ox,Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snack, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Chicken, Rooster, Dog And Pig, each of which has its matching earth branch and character.

十二生肖是鼠,牛,虎,兔,龙,蛇,马,羊,猴,鸡,狗,和猪,每一个都有它相应的地支和特征。

In Chinese astrology, the animal signs assigned by year represent what others perceive you as being or how you present yourself.
 在中国的占星术,(出生之年)的动物标志体现了别人认识你拥有什么或者你怎样表现你自己。

Besides presenting oneself, the zodiac signs also have another function, that is, deducing a person's age from the sign of the person.

除了表现自己之外,属相还有另一个功能那就是从一个人的生肖来推断这个人的年龄。

Know the current sign of the year and then a person's perceived age would be deduced.

如果知道今年的生肖,那么就能推理出一个人的表象年龄。

For example, if it is the year of ox in 2011, then persons of ox is either 12, 24, 36 or 48 years old in 2011, while persons of rabbit zodiac are two years younger than those Oxen accordingly in 2011.

例如,如果2011年是牛年,那么2011年牛年的出生人要么是12,要么24,要么36 要么48,然而属兔的人在2011年,相应地就比这些属牛的人年轻两岁。

Chinese Zodiac years of birth are also called Chinese Zodiac animal years, better known as Ben Ming Nian in Chinese, in which people usually wear something red like to avoid bad luck during this year, such as socks, a ribbon, clothes, underwear, a waistband or a bracelet and the likes.

 生肖为出生之年的年份也叫做生肖动物年,汉语更熟知的称之为本命年,在本命年人们通常会穿或戴些红色的服饰来防止厄运,例如,袜子,缎带,衣服,内裤,腰带或者手镯以及像这一类的东西
