Rat - Secret Animal Chinese Zodiac

The Rat as a Secret Animal

The secret animal is thought to be a person's truest representation, since this animal is determined by the smallest denominator: a person's birth hour.

The Chinese Zodiac is based on astrology so the 2-hour increments of time coincide with the position of the sun in the sky, not the time on your local clock. The sun's position isn't guided by daylight savings time or Greenwich mean time so for accurate calcualtion the location of birth may also be a factor.

The Rat as a Secret Animal occurs when someone is born between 11:00pm - 1:00am.
