Reply: how to translate "本命年"

In acient China, they would like to name the year after those 12 animals such as Mouse, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit and so on, matching with those 10 numberal words ----Jia, Yi, Bing, Ding ----, they  got 60 years in order. If you were born in the year of Tiger, you could say that THIS IS THE ANIMAL YEAR OF MY BIRTH.

Re: how to translate "本命年"

I think it could be said "one's year of birth considered in relation to the 12 Terrestrial Branches. "
