For many centuries the people of China have relied on ancient Chinese astrology symbols to represent their horoscopes.
Chinese astrology uses the twelve animals of the horoscope to help them guide people to their chosen destiny. The symbols work along with the sun and the moon in order to serve as a representation of human culture.
The story behind the symbols states that the ancient gods held a race with every animal on earth represented. At the end of the race there were twelve animals left standing and they were said to be the best and the strongest. Those animals are now used to represent Chinese astrology.
Rat: This symbol was shared by ancient emperors. They can be mean or show cruelty to those who provoke them and also have a dangerous side.

Tiger: One of the best friends that you can have is anyone who shares this symbol. They fight hard to maintain lasting friendships.
