Not nearly as self-confident as they appear on the surface, Wood Rats will never expose this vulnerability to others. They’re successful despite their perpetual fear of failing. Wood Rats enjoy being with friends and family and fortunately for them, feelings of love and respect are mutual.
DH Water Dog
Water Dogs – Years 1922 and 1982
Less independent, Water Dogs become more self-confident when they’re part of the pack. They prefer being in the pack rather than being the pack’s leader. They’re faithful, affectionate, flexible and relaxed.
Ds1 Fire Dog
Fire Dogs – Years 1946 and 2006
Fire Dogs are true leaders. Others enjoy being in the company of Fire Dogs. They’re sexually attractive, charismatic, vibrant and confident and they always prefer to be on the go.
DS2-and interestingly enough, also my father
Earth Rats – Years 1948 and 2008
Earth Rats prefer a sense of stability, digging in and putting down roots early to help ensure a successful future. They believe that slow and steady is the best approach. Being spontaneous is an inbred trait, but this type of behavior does not suit Earth Rats.
It's really, really interesting to me that DH and DS1 are very similar in physical characteristics and personalities..and are both dogs. And DS2 and I are more similar both in physical characteristics and personalities and are both rats! Very cool.
Me: Fire Snake
Fire Snake – Years 1917 and 1977
Fire Snakes are more extroverted, forever offering opinions and telling others what’s on their minds. Even so, others enjoy listening to Fire Snakes. They’re very persuasive and are especially good at convincing others that their ways are best.
Hubby: Fire Dragon
Fire Dragons – 1916 and 1976
A Fire Dragon’s emotions can flare instantly. Fire Dragons put themselves on pedestals, and because they react quickly and recklessly, they sometimes make wrong decisions. Fire Dragons need to slow down and keep their tempers in check as that’s when they’re best.
I'm not entirely sure those are accurate -- they seem to describe each other a little more than ourselves.
The Dragon year is usually considered the luckiest in the zodiac, especially for boy babies. We celebrate Chinese New Year here, and I have a lot of friends/family that are excited we're having a Dragon baby You have to also keep in mind that the zodiac is dependent on a lot more than just birth year. Your time of birth, the day, etc all can change the components as well. It's really tricky. We don't do much with the zodiac besides celebrate Lunar New Year, but my best friend (100% Chinese) has charts drawn up by astrologers for big things (well, really her mom has it done and gives it to her for advice) like when she picked a wedding date, etc. The astrologer needs to know the exact date and time of your birth (and your spouse's, parent's, etc) to be able to draw up an accurate chart.
Lily is an Earth Rat: Earth Rats prefer a sense of stability, digging in and putting down roots early to help ensure a successful future. They believe that slow and steady is the best approach. Being spontaneous is an inbred trait, but this type of behavior does not suit Earth Rats. The part about stability is true for her, she likes to know how things are going to go, etc
Violet is a Metal Tiger, her year is technically a Golden Tiger, which is lucky for wealth. Assertive, competitive and sharp, once Metal Tigers set their sights on their goals there’s no stopping them. They’ll always do what’s necessary to remain at the center of attention. Metal Tigers tend to jump to conclusions; a behavior they need to work at improving. This describes Lily more than Violet
I'm a Water Boar/Pig: Water Pigs are trustworthy almost to a fault. Others can easily influence Water Pigs, but Water Pigs are also good at influencing others to get what they want. They’re extremely social and enjoy having a good time. I'm very social and good at getting what I want
DH is a Metal Rooster: These Roosters have really big egos and are forever seeking willing listeners who can help keep those egos inflated. Metal Roosters analyze everything. Their aggressive nature keeps some prospective friendships and relationships from developing. He does analyze things a lot
I'm a Water Pig:
Water Pigs – Years 1923 and 1983
Water Pigs are trustworthy almost to a fault. Others can easily influence Water Pigs, but Water Pigs are also good at influencing others to get what they want. They’re extremely social and enjoy having a good time.
DH is an Earth Horse:
Earth Horses – Years 1918 and 1978
Earth Horses will work to meet their goals, no matter how long it takes. They’ve got the ability to view situations from all perspectives and this ability is especially useful when it comes to making decisions. They’re very adaptable and they’re funny too.
Oh, and Kaiya was a Metal Tiger:

I'm a rat, full of energy, talkative, and charming with the ability to become aggressive, capable of surviving any situation. Yup sounds like me!

Supportive and giving, make a great partner, enjoy staying home, and committed for the long term. He is a WATER PIG, which are trustworthy to a fault.

Cadence (my 3yo daughter) is a rat. Same as me above, no wonder we butt heads lol!
Ethan (my 20 mos old) is a tiger. Unpredictable, competitive and brave. Loves to be challenged, born to lead and stubborn. Very intelligent, always on alert. Very charming and well-liked by others. Tend to dominate in relationships and do whatever is neccessary to remain the center of attention.
