Do u know why Marat chose the tattoo"猴" and find ur own symbol?Come in!

In acient China,people used 12 animals [mouse鼠,ox牛,tiger虎,rabbit兔,dragon龙,snake蛇,horse马,sh eep羊,monkey,chicken鸡,dog狗,pig 猪 ] to symbolize the year which a person is born.Marat was born on 1980 the year for monkey.so Marat chose that Chinese character as a tattoo.
In the 12 animals,everyone has its symbolism:
鼠mouse-smart,successful,has the ability to accumulate.
牛ox-honest,patient,introverted
虎tiger-brave,firm,tolerant
兔rabbit-tender,silent,kind
龙dragon-vivacious,proud,confident
蛇snake-out-going,friendly,brave
马horse-up-and-about,nimble,friendly
羊sheep-tender,show filial obedience
猴monkey-vivacious,up-and-about,smart,knight-errantry,talk big,impetuous
鸡chicken-wise,out-going
狗dog-brave,enthusiastic,hard-working
猪pig-pure,frank
If u wanna know ur symbol,follow the table behind
mouse(1972),ox(1973),tiger(1974),rabbit(1975),drag on(1976),snake(1977),horse(1978),sheep(1979),monke y(1980),chicken(1981),dog(1982),pig(1983)
If ur birth year isn't included, use it to "+" or "-" the multiple of 12. U can get the symbol.
BTW,I 'm ox

"猴" Monkey , one of the twelve Chinese animals which used to symbolize the year in which a person is born.A monkey stands for smart & vivacious likes marat and me .

Re: Do u know why Marat chose the tattoo"猴" and find ur own symbol?Come in!

catcher, do you know, if fact, these symbols were arranged by lunar calendar. maybe you were born in 1980, but if you were born in January, ur symbol will not be monkey. cos in Jan, it was also sheep year. I have checked that. but I think it is too difficult to know for foreigners. so I have never said it. but you are a chinese, so I hope you could understand.
BTW, my symbol is dog.

I have to say yes. in 1980, accroding to the lunar calendar, it turned to monkey year at abt 15th, Feb. so, not only Marat but JCF is born in sheep year. but we have some superstition on these symbols. we believe that borning in sheep year means unlucky. so I prefer this tiny mistake continues all his life.

I'm a rabbit because I was born in 87... THe description is somethat accurate. Kudos to Chinese astromomers, or whoever....

Just one thing: don't tell me there aren't any rabbit-like, horse/ox/pig..........-like people in 1988, for instance. There are plenty of different characters every year.
