Chinese Zodiac

The Chinese zodiac and the animals associated with the Chinese astrological model are very different to the western style month by month Zodiac principles. In Chinese astrology there is a 12 year cycle which more than likely relates to the 12 year cycle of Jupiter and each of those 12 years is assigned an animal to which the personality is intimately linked. As well, according to the Chinese zodiac each of these animals relates to the others to a better or lesser degree.

The History of Chinese Zodiacs

Chinese astrology dates back thousands of years and is becoming more and more popular. It is also linked to the concept of feng shui and improving your circumstances to the correct construction of living space, placement of different objects and furniture and the counteractive procedures for changing luck. Of course the animals will have reference to the culture of China over the centuries but it appears that the interpretations have relevance for people born in other parts of the world as well.

The Chinese zodiac is based upon the Chinese calendar as well so that the New Year doesn’t actually fall on January 1 as it does in western countries. It varies between January 21 and February 20 so it’s a good idea to check the specific dates each year to see which Chinese zodiac animal you fall under. Generally speaking these are the years and the animal ruler.

Each of the Chinese Zodiac animals has a specific quality which is related to the personality of those born in each year. Of course if we apply a bit of common sense we easily come to the conclusion that not everyone born in say the year of the ox in 1973 is going to have identical personality traits and justice in Western astrology having the time and place of birth is essential for distinguishing people born in that month, naturally this criteria will have a marked influence on all of those born in the year of the ox by bringing out the subtle nuances of character as a result.
