Interesting change. Reminds me of the Chinese horoscope :)

I actually thought about the Chinese horoscope when I was designing it. Think of it as a Western, medieval version of that. I tried to use animals that held a special meaning in medieval European bestiaries. I thought about mixing in anthropomorphic signs (like Western astrological signs, which are both human and animal) but it felt too much like vanilla Western astrology. This is different, but familiar enough for people to relate to and still feel like they're in a medieval setting.
