Do you need the answer to the question "What is my zodiac sign?". Are you curious about the way your personal energy is defined in feng shui? Not only there is an animal symbol/a zodiac sign that best describes specific tendencies of your personality, there is also a specific feng shui element that provides further insight into your energy make-up.  All this information is based on the year of your birth.

In looking for your zodiac sign, it is important to know that in feng shui we use the Chinese calendar, which means that if you are born in the months of January or February, you have to check the exact beginning of the new year according to the Chinese calendar.

Why? Simply because the Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) is never celebrated on January 1, but rather falls on the second New Moon of the new year. Not to worry, though, as you can find your zodiac sign, as well as the beginning of each Chinese New Year in the chart below.

In feng shui, the birth element of a person provides crucial information in helping create the best feng shui home or office. You can explore our numerous tips for creating the best feng shui home decor  based on your birth element, as well as ask specific questions at the Feng Shui for Modern Living page.

But first, you need to find your Chinese zodiac sign and feng shui element; here they are in the chart below.
