If you're pregnant, I can guarantee you have at least one friend already obsessing over your baby's astrological sign (Oh, a libra baby! I love libras). But with Chinese New Year almost here, I thought it would be fun to look at a different kind of zodiac and flip the script a little. Maybe it's not what sign your baby is born under, but what sign you wereborn under, that best informs that parent-child dynamic. Have you thought about the kind of mom you are based on Your Chinese Zodiac sign?
In Chinese culture, a person's zodiac sign (derived from one's birth year) is considered to be highly predictive of their personality and even their destiny. Based on a 12-year calendar, the 12 Chinese zodiac signs include: the rat, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep (sometimes referred to as 'goat'), the monkey, the rooster, the dog, and the pig. Not all signs are created equal either! In China, the Dragon sign is the most highly revered, according to The Star, whereas the Sheep sign is shunned, reported CNN.
Plus, the Chinese zodiac doesn't limit its scope to the individual — it also has something called "compatibility triangles."
