|First of all, people always talk about "Chinese
Astrology" but this is nonsense as we're not dealing
with planets but with mythology bases on a legend :
Buddha invited all the animals of the world but very few
came - a total of twelve . The Rat was the first one to
arrive. Buddha gave each year the name of an animal and
rewarded the Rat by naming the first year after him.
Chinese New Year is not always on the same day, but takes place betwee mid-January and mid-February. Each animal also has a YIN or YANG characteristic.
Below is the list of years from 1900 to 1911 :
- 1900 year of the RAT : starts on Jan 31th : YIN.
Under the "NEW ASTROLOGY" the birth sign (Aries, Cancer, etc) is linked to the animal representing the birth year in the Chinese Astrology. So this gives results like CANCER/RAT, CANCER/OX, CANCER/TIGER etc.
The Chinese Astrology also has 4 elements : METAL, WATER, WOOD and FIRE : they are different from the Western Astrology's elements.
It is clear that this is also a mythology and that the "mariage" between the two Astrologies doesn't simplify things, quite the opposite !
Once again you will find below a graph where the 11.607 personalities are sorted by year of birth. We see there's hardly any difference between the number of people in each sign...
