Chinese New Year is on Saturday (January 28) marking the start of the Year of the Rooster.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people descend on London’s West End to wish each other "Xin Nian Kuai Le" (Happy New Year in Mandarin) or "San Nin Faai Lok" (in Cantonese).

So now is the perfect time to learn what Chinese Zodiac sign you are and whether it mirrors your personality, and it all depends on the year of your birth.

The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, runs on a 12-year cycle, calculated by the lunar calendar, and each year is represented by a different animal. 2017 is the Year of the Rooster.

It is divided into 12 blocks, just like its western counterpart, but the main difference is that each block in the Chinese Zodiac has a time-length of one year instead of one month.

Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of the following 12 animals: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

According to Chinese astrology, people share similar personality traits with the zodiac animal of the year of their birth.

So as we prepare to celebrate Chinese New Year in London, we have created a special tool to help you find out which Chinese Zodiac sign you are.

All you need to do is enter your date of birth to discover which animal represents you.
