Chinese Zodiac

Like so many ancient traditions, the origin stories of the Chinese zodiac vary.

Some say that the Buddha (or Jade Emperor) called on all animals to help mankind and only 12 responded. Others say that a Great Race was held to determine which animals would be placed in the zodiac for eternity. This guide is based on the ancient origin story of the Great Race, which determined each animal's position in the zodiac.
