Chinese astrology, also referred to as Sheng Xiao, revolves around a 12-year cycle with each year in the cycle relating to a specific animal sign. However, the sign-element combination takes place every 60 years.
Chinese astrology is one of the oldest forms, dating back to the time of Buddha. In a Chinese horoscope, the emphasis is on the individual’s birth year. The signs of the Chinese Zodiac reveal much about the future and our energy.
Although the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac have leading roles in Chinese astrology, factors like birth date and time, the combination of yin and yan, and the five elements help to create a person’s detailed profile.
The signs of the Chinese Zodiac are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig
These signs are calculated in alignment to the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
It is believed that the long relationship between humans and the 12 animals is inspired by the characteristics that people represent in years (as it happens with Western culture).
