 Just to let you know, I'll tell you what my family's Chinese zodiacs are:

  1. My Dad: Dog
  2. My Mom: Monkey
  3. My Brother Mati: Sheep
  4. My Brother Casper: Monkey
  5. Me: Snake

This is what my horoscope says:
People born in the year of the Snake are romantic and deep-thinking, wise and charming, although they tend to dismiss others too quickly and are a bit stingy with money. Ideal jobs include teaching or psychiatry.
Kind of true!
