Many may still have inaccurate information for this.
See, Year Sign change usually starts from February 4th with variation in the hour. For instance, baby that's born until Feb 4th 2020 16:59 pm will still have Earth Pig Year Sign. Then starting from 17:00 onwards, the Sign will change to Metal Rat.
Does this different Year Sign have significant effect?
Year Sign constitutes about 1/8 of the total Elements in your Birth Chart. So for characters / talents / internal reading it may not have extreme impact. But if you want to optimize the Feng Shui of your house, Year Sign is significant because Feng Shui is external. The link to the external world is our Year Sign.
For e.g. if you're born in Dog Year, house with frequency that clicks perfectly with you would be one that faces South East (112.5°-127.5°). If instead, it faces the opposite NW (292.5°-307.5°), you might feel restless all the time. However, if you want to expand yourself, skills, opportunities, even business, you need to keep that NW Sector clean and organized, so that the Qi flow in and out that particular space is smooth unobstructed. What if the NW is a missing sector? Like an L-shaped house that doesn't include NW sector into your house, what can happen? Well, it might be more difficult for you to expand, then. These are all calculated based on your Year Sign. And several others more, like picking auspicious dates for moving into a new house, doing renovation, holding important events, these also use Year Sign.
That's how accurate Year Sign is also important.
