Some people swear by their zodiac signs. But to novices like me, it can feel pretty overwhelming. You don't just have one sign. You have your rising sign, your sun sign, your moon sign - it's all so much! I thought I was just a Leo, but apparently, that's not the case. You can find out your moon and rising sign by just knowing a few key facts about yourself, like your exact time of birth and what day of the week you were born on, and wah-lah! A whole new door of zodiac knowledge falls into your lap.
All of my friends are obsessed with zodiac signs, and I'll admit, it's definitely intriguing, and can be scarily accurate. Once you begin to explore the world of zodiac signs, it's pretty addicting.
Which leads me into the Chinese New Year. Today, Tuesday, February 5th, is the official start of the Chinese New Year, and it's officially the Year of the Pig.
What does the Year of the Pig mean?The Pig is the twelfth of the 12-year cycle of animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac, in regards to the Chinese calendar.
