Every lunar year has an animal, and either a yin or yang element associated with it, so anyone born during that lunar year will always share those yearly associations. That said, there are some systems which do go into giving additional signs and elements for the hour, day, or season when one was born - but no matter what, they still have the yearly association.
It's a bit like how anyone born from Jan 20th to Feb 18th is going to be an Aquarius in the western system, which is always an air sign, but more detailed charts also give you signs based on hour of birth and other such details.
I sing of you, blessed, night-winged Dream, Messenger of things to come, greatest prophet to mortals, in the quiet of sweet sleep you come silently and speak to the soul.
