In our spiritual journey, we have many different tools helping us to know ourselves better. Zodiac signs are one of them as well as spirit animals. But do spirit animals and zodiac signs are somehow related?
There is not any easy answer for that. That is why I have created this article to elaborate on this question.
Join me while we are answering one by one.
Do zodiac signs have spirit animals?
Zodiac signs do not directly determine your spirit animals. Therefore, the spirit animals can be different for people with the same zodiac signs.
Spirit animal and astrology
When you have a particular zodiac sign, it influences your behavior and characteristics. So that gives us some possibilities on which animals can be your spiritual guide.
That’s why I have researched different astrological signs and tried to understand what spirit animal you can have depending on your zodiac sign.
Keep in mind that these are only guesses and not confident. To be sure, you need to find your spirit animal through a shamanic journey.
What is the difference between the Chinese and western zodiacs?
The zodiac signs we are familiar with are the western zodiacs. But the Chinese do not follow this, and they have their system of determining zodiac signs.
The key difference between Chinese and western zodiacs is how they are determined. While western zodiacs are based on the date and month you are born, the Chinese zodiacs are based on the year you are born.
A 12-year cycle determines your zodiac sign in China. One animal represents these 12 years each.
So, your spirit animal based on the Chinese zodiac could be the animal that represents your birth year.
What’s your spirit animal based on your zodiac sign?
Different symbols represent different zodiac signs. Some of them are also represented by animals.

The animal representing Aries is “The Ram,” which is the Latin word for a male sheep.
Then a Bull represents Taurus.

A lion represents Leo.

The sea-goat represents Capricorn.
And lastly, the fish is the symbol of Pisces.
