In the Chinese calendar, each year is associated with one of the twelve signs of the zodiac, represented by animals, which return cyclically every 12 years: rat, buffalo, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, pig. Discover yours (how to calculate it?), in our file below:

The new year is also linked to one of the five cosmogonic elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water. To know your element in the Chinese horoscope, birth years ending in 0 or 1 are Metal, 2 or 3 are Water, 4 or 5 are Wood, 6 or 7 are Fire, 8 or 9 are from Earth.

Each lunar new year has its own Chinese horoscope. Finished the Water Rabbit, we move on to a new animal, the Wood Dragon. The fifth animal of the Chinese zodiac, the Wood Dragon is a forgiving animal, more sociable and more adaptive than other Dragons, with great inner strength and a “sharp mind for solving complex problems,” according to the China website .in. This animal associates easily with the Rat and the Monkey, but much less so with the Dog.

In Chinese astrology, the dragon portends a year of prosperity and luck, and the Wood element strengthens the ability to communicate effectively and connect with others.

A tradition dating back more than 4,000 years, the Lunar New Year is celebrated for a fortnight, until the eve of the Lantern Festival, February 26. Often called "Chinese New Year" in France, this celebration is actually honored in several Asian countries, and for several days. It is also called "Spring Festival" or "Têt Festival" in Vietnam. Contrary to what its name suggests, this New Year is not only celebrated in China on the Asian continent. It is in fact celebrated in several Asian countries: in Viet Nam (where it is called the Tet Festival), in Malaysia, in Singapore, in Thailand, in the Philippines, in Indonesia, in Singapore, Hong Kong or even in Brunei.

The date of Chinese New Year changes every year as it is based on the lunisolar calendar. This one corresponds to the second new moon since the winter solstice. It is in the Chinese city of Nanjing, at the Purple Mountain observatory, that this date is determined. In 2024, Chinese New Year started on Saturday, February 10, 2024.
