|About Ancient Chinese Birth Charts
What Were They?
Of course, the Chinese place great importance on a person's birth sign,
and some couples plan their child's conception so that the baby is born in
the year of one of the most desirable astrological signs. The Chinese have
also been actively interested in the gender of their children, and to this
end, the ancestors studied the seasons and the phases of the moon to learn
how they might affect the sex of a baby conceived on any given date.
Eventually, patterns were noted, and all the info was compiled into a
chart that could basically predict the sex of any child according to its
date of conception.
Rather than leave fate up to itself, couples began using the chart to
choose the best possible dates for conceiving a child of the desired sex.
The ancient Chinese birth charts proved accurate enough that their use
Why Were They Developed and Used?
In ancient Chinese culture, and still to some extent this day, boy
children have been viewed as more desirable. Yes, this seems sexist, but
here are the thoughts that provoked the preference. Boys are typically
stronger and ready to help provide for the family at an earlier age than
girls. Sons were viewed as a way to bring greater fortune to the family.
On the other hand, while daughters were necessary to keep family lines
generating, they were largely viewed as more of a drain on the family
fortunes because they would take everything invested into their care with
them when they moved in with their husbands' families.
Today, China's large population dilemma and "one child rule" continues
to force potential parents to carefully consider whether they want to have
a son or a daughter.
Are They Still Relevant Today?
Actually, Chinese birth charts are still in use today. Only now, people
from all over the globe consult them in an effort to guess the sex of
their unborn child or plan the gender before birth.
Many people view this activity as more of a parlor game than a real
scientific tool, however, others take it more seriously. Some enthusiasts
even claim the charts are up to 93% accurate. What you need to keep in
mind that they can only truly be guaranteed to be 50% accurate when there
are only two choices available. Still, the results have proven impressive
enough that the charts remain in use to this day.
Discovery of an Ancient Birth Chart
Archaeologists have actually uncovered what is believed to be one of
the earliest, if not the original, Chinese birth chart. The discovery was
made in an ancient tomb near Beijing that had been buried for over 700
years. This wonderful find and piece of Chinese history is currently
housed at the Beijing Institute of Science.

Symbolism in Chinese Astrology
The astrology that is practiced in the East is quite different to that
of the West mainly because of the way each divides up and charts the year.
The fundamental difference underlying the two systems is that, whereas in
the West the calendar is based on the sun, in the East the Oriental year
is based on the cycle of the moon. And whereas in the West the New Year is
always constant, falling annually on the 1st of January, because the
Chinese calculate the beginning of their year according to the second New
Moon following the Winter Solstice, it means that their New Year is not
fixed but may occur sometime within a span ranging from the middle of
January to the middle of February.
Unlike Western astrology which uses the Zodiac and symbolism of the
planets, Chinese astrology uses twelve animals as a form of shorthand to
represent the nature and character of those born in the different years.
Under the Chinese astrological system a complete analysis of an individual
would have to take into account the year of birth, the element, the
yin/yang polarity, the month of birth, and the hour of birth. When
analyzing an individual, it is the year sign that lays down the
fundamental description of character, but this character is subject to
refinement by the element, polarity and animal characteristics governing
both the month and hour of birth.
