“Having less competition” would have to be based only in Asian environments - because it’s only there that zodiac choices exist - once your data includes western celebrities your data is skewed and no longer valid.
You can't determine what chinese zodiac you are based on what year you were born according to the Western calendar. For an example, Gianluigi Buffon was born on January 28, 1978 and now most of you guys will say now that he was born in the year of the horse but it's wrong because the Chinese New Year did not began until early February. So, actually, Buffon was born in the year of snake.

I am a Chinese person.What she said is not Chinese mainstream culture. This is to cater to foreigners' mystique and curiosity, introduced Chinese very few people's superstitions. The true Chinese zodiac comes from 12 animal hours. Tranditional Chinese time is 12 hours per day. If you use number name the hour, it is too abstract to the people lived in some thousands years ago. For example you say that it is 11pm-1am, it is difficult to understand to children and that time people.If you say that it is mouse time, people would know it is midnight, because mouse often go out at midnight.Ancient Chinese accord 12 animals' feature named 12 hours,then named 12 years.
I think it's important to realize that the birth of the Year of the Dragon means more challenges, because the dragon is a symbol of powerful creatures, and the tigers and rams are symbols of repulsiveness, so they are fortunate to get high because of the lack of enemies. However, in the long run, luck and real strength who win the final victory can be seen at a glance.
Chinese horoscopes are vastly more complicated than 12 zodiac animals or earthly branches which permute with 10 celestial stems, forming 60-year cycles.
Likewise, western horoscopes are more complicated than 12 astrological signs which are influenced by ascendant signs, planetary movements and houses.
