By Kathryn Chou and , From Business

Happy Chinese New Year! In honor of the , here’s an explanation of the Chinese zodiac and what it means for you.

The Chinese zodiac is based on a 12-year cycle, with an animal representing each year. Chinese zodiacs are determined by birth year, so each zodiac gets the spotlight once every 12 years.

According to Chinese folklore, the order of these zodiacs was determined by a race that was won by a clever rat who rode on an ox’s back until it was able to cross the finish line first. Thus the rat is the first animal, followed by the ox.

2017 is the year of the rooster, and it’s believed that anyone born under this sign will have a good year with plenty of luck and opportunities.

According to the Chinese zodiac, your birth year says more than just your age. The Chinese believe that the animal ruling your birth year has a profound influence on your personality, relationships, and destiny.
