Hi Farida, here is my feedback for you :)

Asking other people about zodiac or age is a common way for gaining information by Chinese people.

They can know their fortune [...] with animals started from a rat to a pig.
One of the most fascinating aspects of obtaining this information is that they can know more about their fortune and misfortune, personality, career prospect and so forth. Suffice it to say, Chinese zodiac is a cycle of 12 years and depicted with animals such as a rat and pig.

Chinese Zodiac also influence their [...] choose a specific year for the babies.

... such as giving name to their baby, deciding marriage dates and others. They believe that some certain animals get unwell with each other so parents will choose a specific year for the babies.Unfortunately, I don't get what you mean in this sentence :(.
