Chinese use their astrology for agriculture, religion, events, special occasions, planning and personal growth.

The New Year starts on the second new moon after the winter solstice. Usually in February.They follow the lunar calendar which is 13 months long and each month is marked by the new moon.

There are many variations and styles of astrology in the east based on geography and the time period.

It is not true astrology in the strictest sense.

Chinese astrology is based on the chinese calendar. The Chinese calendar is based on astronomy, numerology and ancient philosophy. The Chinese calendar is a lunisolar calendar combining both the path of the sun and the moon.

 

2007 was the year of the golden pig. anyone born between the new moon of aquarius 2007 and the new moon of aquarius 2008 are said to bring wealth and great success to their family. The golden pig attribute only happens once every 60 or 600 years... depending on who you ask. Some feel lucky just being in the presence of babies born last year.

Originally the 5 planets (elements), the moon and the sun made up the "7 stars". Each of the 7 stars resided in the 4 seasons or directions and made up the "28 lunar mansions". Here is an example by:

 

Lunar mansions became very popular in Arabic astrology and in Indian astrology. In Indian astrology they call them the 28 nakshastras.

These also make up 28 specific constellations with very detailed stories, legends and omens attached to them.

 

 

Two other forms of astrology came later:

The "Purple Emperor" based on the lunar calendar and the "4 pillars of destiny" based on the solar calendar.

(There are many forms and variations of chinese fortune telling to date.)

Chinese astrology uses a 60 year cycle. It's each of the 5 elements (planets) paired up with each of the 12 zodiac animals in the sky. All of these combine to make the "12 earthly branches".

Everything is also assigned a Yin or Yang value. The "10 heavenly stems" come from the Yin and the Yang of each of the 5 elements.

If the year ends in an even number the heavenly body is Yang. Odd is Yin.

  • If the year...

  • ends in 0- Yang Metal.
  • ends in 1- Yin Metal.
  • ends in 2- Yang Water.
  • ends in 3- Yin Water.
  • ends in 4- Yang Wood.

"Nineteen Principles of the Infinite Universe


DAO - Seven Principles Of The Infinite Universe

1.       All phenomena are a differentiation of One Infinity.
2.       Everything changes.
3.       All antagonisms are complementary.
4.       Nothing is equal, all things are unique.
5.       All things have a front, and a back.
6.       The greater the front, the greater the back.
7.       What has a beginning, has an end.

DE - Twelve Laws Of Cyclic Change Of The Infinite Universe

  1. One Infinity manifests itself into two Universal -  complementary and antagonistic -  tendencies, called yin and yang, in a cycle of endless change.
  2. Yin and yang are manifested continuously through the infinite movement of One Infinite Universe.
  3. Yin is centrifugal, flowing in spiral movement inward out and clock-wise. Yang is centripetal, flowing in spiral movement outward in, and counter-clockwise; together creating all energy and all things. Yang energy -  or Heaven force -  is produced by the sun and is received through our crown chakra; Yin energy – or Earth force – is produced by the earth and is received through our base chakra. Together Heaven and Earth force create our spiritual canal alongside our body.
  4. Yin attracts yang, yang attracts yin.
  5. Yin repels yang, yang repels yin.
  6. Yin and yang combined in varying proportions produce different phenomena, their powers of attraction and repulsion representing the degree of difference or similarity.
  7. All phenomena are ephemeral, constantly changing their constitution, condition or direction from yin to yang and from yang to yin: yin becoming yang, yang becoming yin.
  8. Nothing is solely yin nor solely yang. All visible and invisible phenomena carry both tendencies in varying intensities.
  9. Nothing is neutral. There is always a domination of yin or yang.
  10. Great yin attracts small yin. Great yang attracts small yang.
  11. Yin in its extreme and ultimate state of expansion creates yang. Yang in its extreme and ultimate state of contraction produces yin.
  12. All physical manifestations hold yang in the center and carry yin on their backs. "

_________________________________________

 

The Chinese base the 12 animal system off of Jupiter's Orbit. Jupiter is the planet of destiny and is very different from any planet in our system. We are very lucky to only have one Jupiter and that it is so calm. Jupiters are, in almost every solar system we study, whacking other planets into the sun like marbles on a whim, making it hard for them to live for very long and develop life like our planet has.

 

 

each person is assigned 4 of the 12 animals. Hour, day, month and year. We all have a power animal or year animal, which is the most popular in the west. we all have an inner animal that is based on our month of birth which influences our motivation, love life, compatibility and inner dialogue. Our day animal influences daily activity. And finally, we all have a secret animal based on our time of birth. this last one is considered to be the most powerful influence over who we are.

side note- Chinese culture is very different than ours. This is a great tool for self discovery... but western astrology is much more new age. The chinese, vedic and arabic astrology still follow ancient text. Ours evolves over time. Both are good. At least they will never get lost in mistranslation. It is just important to read between the lines. apply it to today. Especially when visiting other sources that do animal compatibility. It is somewhat right but we are so different now adays and the ancient text doesn't always apply or matter anymore.
