East meets West, zodiac style.
If you grew up in the east, you are very familiar with the Chinese zodiac consisting of 12 animals. Your sign is determined by the year in which you were born. People from the west are more familiar with their zodiac signs based on the time of year that they were born.
So which is better? Why not combine them!
We thought that it might be fun to see what your western horoscope predicts for the new Chinese year. Lucky for us, the Astrology Club has done that for us. Here’s what they said:
