Eastern horoscope - what is it?

The eastern horoscope, based on the years of the birth of a man, is popular with both residents of Eastern states and Westerners. The Chinese calendar is already more than four thousand years old, but time has no effect on its prevalence.

The eastern horoscope says that every year passes under the sign of a particular living creature. And a person born on this or that year acquires the innate characteristics of his patron, which greatly influence his life and destiny.

At the same time, each new one from the eastern years takes its countdown from the lunar calendar, and each month a new moon begins in it. The beginning of the eastern year falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice (twenty second of December). Therefore, if you were born in January or in the first days of the second month of winter, you can still refer to the sign of the previous eastern year.

There may be such types of animals according to the Chinese horoscope:

  • Rats;
  • Bull;
  • Tiger;
  • Rabbit (or Kota);
  • The dragon;
  • Snakes;
  • Horses;
  • Goats;
  • Monkey;
  • Rooster;
  • Dogs;
  • Pigs

The ancient eastern legend says that it was in this sequence that these living beings came to bid farewell to the Buddha who left the Earth forever. And for this they were given a reward - the opportunity once every 12 years to rule over time and human destiny.

All 12 animals of the Chinese horoscope are divided into four "triads":

  • The first triad is represented by the Rat, the Dragon and the Monkey. Representatives of these signs are distinguished by activity and vigor. They can be very good or very bad, and the concept of the golden mean is unknown to them;
  • the second triad is represented by the Bull, the Serpent and the Rooster. These personalities are characterized by hard success in life (due to hard work and constant tireless efforts). Such personalities are very hardworking, and they also remarkably manage to plan everything;
  • the third triad is represented by Tigris, Horse and Dog. Representatives of these signs support the dialogue very well, they are able to convince others that they are right, they are easily given new connections. Such individuals, as a rule, have a large number of acquaintances, but in reality, they need only one close person to be happy;
  • The fourth triad is represented by Rabbit (or Cat), Goat and Pig. Such personalities are seduced by a beautiful life, they possess a strongly developed sense of beauty and well-manifested creative abilities.
