6 Most Popular, Powerful Chinese Zodiac Signs

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.
