What is Your Chinese Astrology Sign
People relying on their horoscope for a bit of input on what may lay in store for them.
This typically is the following week or month are usually quite familiar with their Zodiac sign, knowing that they belong to one of the twelve signs based on the movement of the sun, moon and planets at the time and date of their birth. As is normal in Western Astrology, their sign is represented by a dashing symbol based on Greek mythology.
Few people know that in Chinese Astrology what the future holds in store for them might actually be based on them being a Rat, an Ox, a Dog or even a Pig.
In Chinese Astrology the emphasis of the Zodiac sign is on the year you were born, with the zodiac cycles being in years, months and hours of the day. Each Chinese Astrology sign – there are twelve in all - is represented by an animal, which in term represents a certain personality.
What is your Chinese Astrology Sign?
The Chinese Zodiac traditionally begins with the sign of the Rat, followed by Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and finally the Pig. A person’s zodiac sign is determined by the year in which they were born, with each zodiac sign repeating itself in 12-year cycles.
So, for example, if a person is born in the years 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996 or 2008, in Chinese Astrology their sign would be the sign of a Rat, a person born in the years 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997 or 2009 would be represented by an Ox and so on.
While a Chinese Astrology Sign might not be nearly as appealing as any one of the twelve astrology signs of the Western culture, being a Pig can actually be a great honor. In the Chinese tradition this sign is a model of sincerity, purity, tolerance and honor. Pigs are among the people most admired in Chinese culture.
On the other hand, being a Tiger in Chinese Astrology stands for being unpredictable, tense and always in a hurry. It does also stand for being a born leader, though, and Tigers are said to always make a lot of money.
So the animals that represent each Chinese Astrology sign have been chosen for some of their very distinct behavior traits by some wise Chinese Astrologer centuries ago. Maybe this means it would be worthwhile to give the Chinese Astrology calendar more than just a passing glance, and to find out what Your Chinese Astrology Sign actually is.See what Chinese sign you are and if it fits you to a T.
