  1. You got the dates mixed up because the year of the snake was in 2001 and I know that because my sister was born that year and I was born in 1989 but im not a dragon the year of the snake is this year and its not 2014 is it???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Thanks for the input. The dates we list are correct. Please note that Chinese Zodiac Signs are based on traditional Chinese calendar, not the western calendar. To tell the sign, you have to tell from the actual year, month AND day.

      If someone was born between Jan. 24, 2001 and Feb. 11, 2002, or between Feb. 6, 1989 and Jan. 26, 1990, it’s a snake. Since you were born in 1989 and is a snake, your birthday must be later than Feb. 5, 1989. On or before that day of the same year, a dragon.

  2. I was in 26/12/1988 ( this is Chinese Calendar ) , which was 02/02/1989 ( Western Calendar ) . I was told I am a full Dragon based on Chinese Calendar as I was born 5 days to early to be a Snake.
    Does this mean I am a Snake based on the Western Calendar ( 02/02/1989 )
    If someone who isn’t Chinese descendent ask which animal horoscope are they, does this mean we have to convert their Western birthday to the Chinese calendar to find out their animal ?

    1. If your birthday is 02/02/1989 based on Western Calendar, you are a Dragon. Normally you need to convert the Western birthday to the Chinese calendar to tell the zodiac sign, but our Chinese Zodiac Sign finder converts the Western birthday directly to Chinese Zodiac Sign.

  3. I am confused to whether I an a ox or tiger. I’m born in 1986 which comes up as a tiger, yet I have all the traits of an ox. My birth date is 11.1.86. So which am I?
