 Chinese astrology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Since the zodiac animal cycle of 12 is divisible by two, every zodiac can only occur in either yin or yang: the dragon is always yang, the snake is always yin, etc. This combination creates a 60-year cycle, starting with Wood Rat and ending with Water Pig.
Since the (traditional) Chinese zodiac follows the (lunisolar) Chinese calendar, the switch over date for the zodiac signs is the Chinese New Year, not January 1 as in the Gregorian calendar.
For example, the Vietnamese zodiac is identical to Chinese zodiac except the fourth animal is the cat not the rabbit, while the Japanese zodiac includes the wild boar instead of the pig.

Over the years, the Zodiac design has evolved as it was first certified and then manufactured as a ready-to-fly aircraft in Canada, Europe and South America, as per local regulations.
To fathom the degree of his involvement and influence in the creation of the new LSA regulations, one only has to look at the Zodiac XL which was introduced in 2001 with a gross weight of 1320 lbs, a top speed of 128 mph and a stall speed of 51 mph.

 Zodiac
Not all of the constellation figures, however, are animals: three are people, one is half human and half animal, two are creatures of the ocean, one is a poisonous insect, another is an instrument for weighing things, and the final four-and-one-half are, indeed, animals.
