What are the signs of Chinese astrology?

In the West, astrology is based on the twelve signs of the zodiac, which are, in order, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. According to the traditional Chinese calendar, the signs are not determined by the month but by the year of birth. A year that begins on variable dates between January and February because this calendar is based on lunar cycles, at odds with the Gregorian calendar. Moreover, the signs are all animals, i.e., in order, the Rat, the Ox, the Tiger, the Rabbit, the Dragon, the Snake, the Horse, the Goat, the Monkey, the Rooster, the Dog and the Pig. Since January 22, 2023, we have been in the Year of the Rabbit!


All about the year of the Rabbit, Chinese zodiac sign of 2023! 

Often, the signs of Chinese astrology are double or even triple… Thus, the year of the Rabbit is also one of the Cat (especially in Vietnam)! The two animals look alike and give the same indications for those people born under their influence: governed by the Wood element and of Yin nature, their character is extremely gentle, accommodating, more like negotiating rather than conflictual, skillful, and harmonious. Most of all, the sign of the Rabbit is synonymous with great artistic creativity.… 

Our artists are inspired by the ANIMALS of Chinese astrology…

As the year of the Rabbit goes hand in hand with a great need for art, our artists invite you to follow them in a universe which is inspired by the Chinese astrology. They have a lot to offer you, especially if you are a Rabbit sign, there are different portraits of your sign!
With Géraldine Morales, the Rabbit is lively and sweet, represented with joyful realism, while with Ann R, it is funny and playful, captured through a super-neat and whimsical style.
The dreamiest among you shall appreciate the delicate versions of Nai and Aguasca Sole Gemma, which can be hung in a bedroom and give the room a soothing feel to it.  

For a children's room or a games room, think of Maury, whose animals have large round eyes, that will amuse the little ones! More pop and close to street art, Croce’s artwork is delightful with its assertive and very unique color palette... Let's not forget Sally B and her delicate compositions, which make you want to share a cup of tea with her Chinese zodiac sign!

Last but not least, Carré d'artistes has also chosen to highlight the artists who have tackled the bestiary of the Chinese astrology. Namely: Alice Locoge, Tayun or Du Mingxuan, and they must have represented your sign! It's up to you to calculate it, then find it among their artworks. A good surprise definitely awaits you.  


To find your chinese sign, you just have to refer to your birth year. Keep in mind that if your birthday is in January or February, you might belong to the previous sign.
