2009 - The Year of the Ox:
Juunishi, the Twelve Branches

Juunishi, literally "12 branches," is mainly known for its 12-year cycles where an animal is assigned to each year. In Japan these zodiac animal years receive more attention and are more widely used in fortune-telling than the zodiacal signs used in astrology.

This year, 2009, is "The Year of the Ox," or ushidoshi in Japanese. (ushi [ox] + doshi [year])

The juunishi system is believed to have originated in China during the Yin Dynasty (c. 1600 - 1000 B.C.). Below are the kanji used for each of the animal branches, their readings, and the supposed characteristics and fortunes of those born in that year. Take a look and see if you agree.

Since I can't use HTML here, just download the PDF and have some fun:
