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猴,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

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. :D

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.

The Fire Snake is like a meteor in the sky, brilliant and alive. With spellbinding eloquence, the Snake converses with conviction on a broad range of topics, but realizes that good conversation lies as much in the listening as the talking. The Snake does both very well, raising communication to a very high and elegant art. People love to be in the company of this very graceful Fire Snake, who is always pleasant, provocative, humorous, and quick witted. With split second reflexes, they are constantly conceiving new ideas and coming up with new schemes. This entrepreneurial spirit makes headlines and the Fire Snake is much admired. Because of their ambition, perseverance, and infinite patience, and wise financial moves made early in life, their fortunes grow steadily. By the time middle age arrives, financial fortune is truly theirs. Relationships follow the same path, through faithfulness, perseverance, and willingness to make relationships really work, the future is always bright.
