Finding Love with the Chinese Zodiac
We love the animals in the Chinese zodiac because of their relatable qualities to our own personalities and behaviors. They were developed for the people of China to use, as the more complex and detailed astrology was reserved for the Emperor of the country.
What is so wonderful about this method of Chinese wisdom is that it’s a simple, workable approach to an ancient system that is both complicated and generally unfamiliar to the Western world. The year of birth is your connection to the greater world outside and helps your search for compatible love.
A Brief Breakdown of Chinese Astrology
The foundation of the animal assignments was to simplify Chinese astrology’s vast system of different approaches to life cycles. It includes not only the lunar cycles that are the basis for the Chinese calendar, but also planetary cycles where Jupiter is quite prominent. Chinese astrology also more directly describes the energy of about 100 individual stars – many of which were incorporated into the Western zodiac, but without as much specific detail.
The Chinese astrological skies have four major animal constellations that each include and protect seven individual star signs that represent living things in action:
The White Tiger protects a monkey, ape, crow, cock, pheasant, doe, and a wolf.
The Vermillion Bird protects a worm, snake, deer, horse, sheep, tapir, and a willow tree.
The Azure Dragon protects a leopard, tiger tail, fox, hare, badger, a weaving maid, and a herd boy.
The Black Tortoise protects a porcupine, bear, swallow, rat, bat, ox, and a griffin. This number matches up to a 28-day lunar cycle.
Balance in Partnership
Chinese astrology and its animals also integrate the yin/yang (masculine/feminine) and how our living energy flows. The five Asian elements – wood (etheric and spatial), fire, earth, metal (similar to Western air), and water – indicate how to use the positive energetic flow between the elements. It’s about balance – utilizing the helpful elements and mitigating elements that are too strong as they interact. They are both static in our lives and in motion. A partnership is an obvious way to support and balance your energies.
