Your birth year determines your Chinese zodiac sign among the 12 animal signs: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.

In Chinese astrology, each zodiac year correlates with one of the 12 Earthly Branches as well as one of five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth.

According to Chinese astrology, the Chinese zodiac signs can be divided by year to determine overall compatibility.

Three harmonies

The three harmonies consist of four groups of three zodiac signs that are spaced four years apart. These signs have the best Chinese zodiac compatibility.

Six harmonies

The six harmonies are compatible with each other but on a more platonic level.

Six conflicts

The Chinese zodiac signs in this group are complete opposites. However, this opposition is attractive, as one sign finds something they might be missing in the other sign.

While they're compatible in that sense, ultimately the opposing nature of each sign means a relationship is unlikely to last.

Six damages

These Chinese zodiac signs are not compatible on any level.

Best match: Dog The Dog’s relationship with the Tiger is one based on harmony, because of their mutual respect and admiration.

Worst match: Dragon The Rabbit must keep away from a relationship with the Dragon, the two natives being totally incompatible. There is no mutual understanding because the Rabbit is too much of a dreamer.

The Dragon Chinese zodiac compatibility

Best match: Rat It is by far the best relationship from the Chinese zodiac. The two natives are ambitious and adventurous, so they will form the perfect couple.

Best match: Monkey It is a successful relationship because the Dragon will appreciate, first of all, the Monkey’s intelligence, and the latter will appreciate the Dragon’s courage and strength.

Worst match: Rabbit The Dragon must be reluctant towards a relationship with the Rabbit because it can only lead to conflicts. The two of them are not compatible, the Dragon is too proud to allow the Rabbit to make certain comments.

The Snake Chinese zodiac compatibility

Best match: Ox The Ox can have an auspicious relationship with the Snake because the Ox is willing to start a family, which will offer the Snake the safety he needs.

Best match: Rabbit Both signs are docile, so together they might have a successful relationship. They equally appreciate nature and the beauty of life. They can coexist in absolute harmony.

Worst match: Rat The Goat should stay away from the Rat, as this sign won't bring the serenity and peace of mind the Goat needs.

The Monkey Chinese zodiac compatibility

Best match: Rat Their common interests make these two signs the right couple, their mutual admiration will be the key to a successful relationship.

Best match: Dragon This association is a bit weird, but the Dragon will appreciate the Monkey’s intelligence, and the Monkey will prefer the Dragon for his courage and power.

The Rooster Chinese zodiac compatibility

The Dog Chinese zodiac compatibility

Best match: Horse An association between these two signs can end in marriage.

Best match: Goat This is probably the best association, both signs are cheerful, and they both have a strong sense of responsibility for their house and family.

Worst match: Monkey The Pig should stay away from the Monkey, whose nature is in conflict with the Pig’s personality, which will only lead to the loss of time and energy for all involved.
