|Understanding Chinese Astrology
Fortune cookies are fun, but Chinese astrology is much more intricate
and satisfying than any feel-good sentence on a piece of paper. For almost
five thousand years, people have looked for guidance in this system, based
on the movement of heavenly bodies, the Chinese calendar, and its cycle of
Chinese astrologists focus on a person's birthday and birth hours in
analyzing their fate and destiny. Yet for the most part, this type of
astrology is used to uncover information about the lifestyle, character
and emotional state of a person. Let's explore this timeless tradition,
used every day by millions of people.
The use of Chinese astrology precedes 2637 BC, when it was officialized
under the rule of Emperor Huang Ti. It emerged and developed alongside the
Chinese writing system, and was soon conjoined with some tenets of Eastern
philosophy, particularly the beliefs elaborated by Confucius, Lao-tse and
the Yi Jing.
Yet the roots of Chinese astrology lie in astronomy. In China, the
ancients didn't look at the sky in the same way that their Western
counterparts did. Instead of 88 constellations, the Chinese had only 28,
each with different names. Amid these constellations, five planets were
seen as being of particular significance: Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars,
and Saturn. Each planet was said to represent a major element of life:
metal (gold), wood, water, fire, and earth, respectively.
The way that the stars are laid out in relation to the sun, the moon,
the comets, and the Chinese zodiac signs were said to determine the
destiny of the person born under them. To understand this notion more
clearly, the Chinese zodiac system requires some explanation.

About Chinese Astrology
12zodiacSo, what is Chinese Astrology anyway? Chinese Astrology is an
ancient art, which uses the time of birth, including the year, month, day
and time, to reveal insights into a person's personality trails,
lifestyle, health, career direction, and compatibility with others.
ALthough the exact origin of the systme is unkonwn, Chinese Astrology has
guided the Chinese for over five thousand years and has a profound
influence on our lives.
The Chinese system of zodiac is actually based on a ten-year Sun-Moon
cycle that conforms to the ancient Chinese agricultural calendar. The
cycle is divided into the five elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and
Metal as well as the twelve animals, which represent each year. The system
is influenced by Yin (female) and Yang (male) cosmic force, which is said
to be an interpretation of universal harmony and balance.
Legend has it that once upon a time, the Heavenly God realized that
there hadn't been a system to keep track of time, so he decided to develop
a calendar system. One day, he summoned the Earth God to hold a race for
the animals inhabiting the earth. So the Earth God gathered all the
animals, and announced that the first twelve animals to cross the river
would be the signs in the zodiac calendar. What a great honor to be in the
zodiac calendar!!! All the animals chattered excitedly, and all wanted to
join the race to win their spot in the calendar.
After the announcement, the Cat turned to his best friend the Rat to
express his deep concern. "How can I cross the river when I am afraid of
water?" At the same time, the old Ox grumbled to himself, and said, "How
can I cross the river with my poor eyesight?"
The intelligent Rat looked at the Cat, then the Ox, and then a
brilliant idea entered his mind, "I've got it! We can hop on the Ox's back
to guide him, and he can carry us across the river without us getting
wet!". All three of them agreed this was a great plan. So, early before
dawn on race day, the Rat, the Cat, and the Ox were cruising slowly in the
river, leaving all the competition behind. Just as they reached the middle
of the river, the calculating Rat sneaked up behind the unsuspecting Cat
and pushed him off the back of the Ox into the river.
Unaware of the commotion on his back, the hard-working Ox paddled
straight ahead and finally reached the shore. Instantaneously, the
aggressive Rat jumped off the back of the Ox and raced to cross the finish
line first, while the serious, eduring Ox finished in second place.
At the same time, all the other animals were struggling to cross the
river. The courageous Tiger raced to the finish line in third place; the
Rabbit, the Dragon, along with the Snake also reached the finish line. The
Horse arrived with the artistic Sheep. The Monkey was given ninth, the
Rooster tenth and the Dog came in eleventh.
Meanwhile, the Heavenly God counted the animals and suddently realized
they were one animal short. At this moment, the meticulous Pig arrived
just before the race came to an end and was given the twelfth spot. A
moment later, the poor Cat arrived soaking wet and found out he was too
late to win any place in the race. Needless to say, from that day on, the
Rat has been the Cat's sworn enemy.
In the end, the Heavenly God was quite pleased with the results and
gladly gave each animal a year of its own, bestowing the nature and
characteristics of each animal to those born in that year.
Love For married couples sometimes will have conflict is because of
children, also for family expenses; For those rabbits in a
relationship/dating, often sinks into the cold war with the lover because
of the minor matter, gathers little leaves many, even has the crisis which
bids good-bye noisily; Has not had object you, the sentiment still a
blank, only had continues to wait for the predestined match.
