Each year in the cycle is assigned an animal symbol; the cycle starts with the rat, followed by the ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and finally the pig. The dates of each year's start and end in the Chinese Zodiac are calculated according to the Chinese lunar calendar.
