It might be a bad sign for you if you are not associated with one of the 6 most popular, powerful Chinese zodiac signs.
I don’t really understand the hype behind zodiac signs or horoscopes, but I do enjoy reading about them every so often, just to see what’s “in my future.” While I do it for the entertainment, some people live by zodiac signs and horoscopes and plan their lives around them. For example many, people seek out information on the best Chinese zodiac year to have a baby so they can determine the fate of their child. For example, many Chinese people believe the Year of the Sheep is a bad time to have a baby because, like sheep, it means their child will be weak. However on the other hand, people want to have a baby during the Year of the Horse because horses are also a contender for the strongest animal in Chinese zodiac sign. While there are many constellations, there are 12 that correspond to the months of the year and each takes up a different section of the night sky. Each person’s zodiac sign is based on the date when they were born. Even though zodiac signs have been around for thousands of years, it’s unlikely that your sign “determines your fate.”
Even with modern science, however, many cultures still live by the zodiac calendar and signs and China is a great example of a country where the practice is commonplace. Many people believe your luck is determined by the signs. When trying to track down which Chinese zodiac sign is the luckiest, it seems that the dragon and horse are the “luckiest,” but it really all depends on the year in which you were born. Being born in the summer could also mean you have more luck.
2017 is the Year of the Rooster, so as long as you’re anything but a rooster (being born in a rooster year which happens every 12 years), pretty much any other signs can be categorized as lucky Chinese zodiac sign for the year. Many consider the dragon as the strongest Chinese zodiac sign, which could very well be true, but it all really depends on the alignment of the stars when you are born. After all this confusing talk of stars, animals, and zodiac signs, you are probably wondering “what is the best Chinese zodiac sign to have?” and unfortunately we can’t really find an accurate answer for you. This is also why we’re not experts on zodiac signs. Sorry. Some believe the dragon is the best, but there’s no real answer on this, plus each sign and animal has its own pros and cons.

With the help of Chinese Zodiac and Quora we were able to determine the 6 most popular, powerful Chinese Zodiac signs, in our opinion at least. Like we said, there’s no, one perfect sign and each has pros and cons, and can be lucky or unlucky depending on the year in which a person is born. All the animals in the Chinese Zodiac have great abilities and characteristics but these on our list stood out the most in our research. We have ranked them by which animal we found was mentioned the most, in conversations debating which is the “best sign.” There are some animals that just seem to be more popular and powerful then others because of the traits in which they are said to possess.
To see if the odds are in your zodiac favor, let’s get to the list.
The Rabbit earned the fourth place in the race as far as our list goes. Although it’s not as huge as the others that made on our list, the cleverness of the Rabbit makes it strong as explained in an ancient Chinese fable. Other characteristics of a rabbit are compassion and sincerity — they also love being with family and friends.
The characteristics of a Dog which most of us know are loyalty, faithfulness, and honesty. Although there are times when it has mood swings and temperamental. The dog ranks as 11th in Chinese zodiac signs, 5th on our list of most popular, powerful Chinese zodiac signs and is known to be responsible.
The energetic Horse came in galloping taking the 7th place of the Zodiac race. This magnificent animal is also self-reliant and loving. Those who fall under this sign are said to be money-wise too, which is definitely not a bad thing in any case.
The Tiger’s strength was its ticket to reach the 3rd place in the zodiac race and ironically 3rd place on our list of most popular, powerful Chinese zodiac signs. Other characteristics of this sign are being charming, having a strong sense of leadership, and being courageous. But just like the Dog, this Chinese zodiac can sometimes be moody.
The naturally kind-hearted Ox was the one who carried the Rat and the Cat across the river in the ancient Chinese zodiac story. But then the Rat jumped ahead of the Ox which made him fall in the 2nd place. An Ox is goal-oriented and hardworking. They may be stubborn but they are affectionate.
We finish up our list of most popular, powerful Chinese zodiac signs with the magnificent, flying creature, the Dragon. It didn’t make the first place in the zodiac lineup, for the Dragon has to stop and help the people make rain. However many believe that those born under the dragon sign “have it all” and therefore it is the best of the twelve. Dragons are said to be confident and intelligent, just to name a couple traits.
With the dragon, we conclude our list of 6 most popular, powerful Chinese zodiac signs, but remember, each sign is popular and powerful in its own way.
