|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.

Chinese0philosophy and legend. Unlike Western Astrology, Chinese0Astrology
has nothing to do with Planets and their actions.

male and exploratory.

organisations, events and humanity and the quest to achieve balance so
that both operate together in harmony rather than opposing or canceling
each other out are an essentialy Oriental viewpoint and quest, they form
the basis of many Far Eastern traditions and other influences in Chinese
Society such as Feng Shui.
