Now is still year of the Pig!
The new zodiac starts on Li Chun 立春 . It doesn't change on Lunar new year which we celebrate. This is a misunderstanding by the general public. This is probably due to easy marketing and thus association of the zodiac with the lunar new year.
The zodiac follows the 二十四节气 （24 seasons) , not the lunar cycle. Other common 节气 we hear of are qing ming清明 and dong zhi冬至 (winter solstice). They are really the name of the season on the calender.
I'll bring this up to the Content Team- they'll look into it and amend it accordinly!
Thanks for pointing it out :)
