Chinese Astrology

 

 

The Chinese zodiac is thousands of years old and easily predates its Western counterpart. Even today, millions of believers across the globe consult Chinese astrology on a regular basis.

 

While Western astrology is based upon the months of the year, Chinese astrology is based upon a 12-year lunar cycle. Your sign is determined by the year in which you were born (to be accurate, you must use a Chinese calendar). Each sign and those born under it are represented by one of 12 animals and are ascribed a set of attributes that the Chinese believe comprise the nature of each particular animal.

 

Legend has it that the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac were chosen by Buddha. When Buddha was near death, he invited all the animals to visit him. Only 12 animals came: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. For visiting him, Buddha honored each by using them to represent the 12 phases of the Chinese zodiac.

 

One of the most interesting uses of the Chinese zodiac is exploring the compatibility between the signs. That is, which duos will make good lovers, friends and partners?
