MANHATTAN — Are you elegant and highly accomplished in the arts? Then you might be a ram.

Are you loyal to a fault and honest as Abe? Maybe you're a pig.

The city is celebrating Chinese Lunar New Year Monday and the question that's on everyone's mind is what animal they are according to the Chinese Zodiac.

DNAinfo's interactive calendar will give you the answer and let you share with your friends.

Those born in the Year of the Ram, 1979, for instance, can claim superstar actor Robert De Niro as one of their own.

Among the famous rabbits, who are considered financially lucky, is Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.

The signs repeat every 12 years, one for each animal on the Zodiac, and impart different characteristics to each year and any person born in that year.

This year is the Year of the Dragon, which is considered to be auspicious, and is expected to spark a baby boom.
