Romance Compatibility Guide by Chinese Zodiac Sign

Signs, Elements and Trines

The elements of Western astrology, of which there are four: air, water, fire, earth, closely relate by comparison to Chinese astrology’s trines. Trines consist of three signs that are similar in temperament, approach to life, and trines are the best indicator of compatibility in friendships, business, and romance. You can get along with someone outside of your trine – you have 144 different possibilities –but the signs in your trine are the signs with which you have a special affinity and therefore are your best choices in predicting relationship bliss.

The Chinese zodiac is made up of 12 signs, each represented by an animal. Like Western astrology, the Chinese zodiac contains elements, five in all: water, earth, fire, wood and metal. Each year the Chinese New Year occurs upon the first New Moon in Aquarius and the ruling signed for the year changes as does the element. With twelve signs and five elements, that gives us the 60-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

Let’s explore the trines of the Chinese Zodiac to find your best chance for romance compatibility:

The First Trine:

Rat: 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008
Monkey: 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004
Dragon: 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012

The Rat, Monkey and Dragon never sit back and wait for things to happen. They are each capable of thinking on their own and forging ahead in a definitive path, but when they put their heads together, they are an unstoppable force. It’s an exciting life.

The Second Trine:

Ox: 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
Snake: 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013
Rooster: 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

The Ox, Snake and Rooster deal in the facts, never follow the crowd, and are the most independent. When two of this trine get together, it is a relationship built on trust, intellect and fidelity. It’s a perfect match.

The Third Trine:

Tiger: 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010
Horse: 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002. 2014
Dog: 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

The Tiger, the Horse and the Dog have a deep love for humanity and each other. They see the bigger picture and are united in exploring life’s true meaning and sharing it with others. It’s a spiritual, blissful romance.

“Astrology brings so much to the table, it gives you the personality, likes and dislikes of a person. Their nature is uncovered and if it is not a match for you, it can be worked around to make it work.” – Quinn ext. 5484

The Fourth Trine:

Rabbit: 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011
Ram: 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015
Pig: 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019

The Rabbit, Ram and Pig are the artistic lovers of the zodiac. They are relaxed alone or with others, and most definitely with each other. They see the beauty in the world around them and are connected to it. It’s a match made of heaven and earth.

    I would really like to be a part of this and find out who my true soul mate is. My Chinese zodiac is pig, and the year of my birth is 1971. I’ve been in many relationships and they all failed miserably. I guess maybe it’s because I wasn’t ready for a serious relationship yet or maybe he just wasn’t the right one. I do need some advice and I was just wondering if you could give it to me.

    WOW! Doesn’t anyone count with you who was born before 1956???????
    Why didn’t you all go back further than that.
    My guess is that many thousands of us who connect to Astrology and Consciousness are definitely born before 1956!
    Please publish findings of the Chinese Zodiac triads before 1956.

  17. LJ Innes

    Thanks Giovanna. And for those of you whose years are “missing” all you have to do is count backwards 12 years to find your year. For those unsure of their true sign, I suggest you consult an astrologer to see when the first New Moon in Aquarius occurred for the year you were born in – it could be anywhere from January to February – the dates change each year. Thanks everyone.

    I’m wondering if I should get back with my boyfriend.

    Me = 1985 OX
    Him = 1977 SNAKE

    The only problem is that he’s way too consumed, used, and abused by his family. If we should get marry and have kid(s), how is he going to support us 100%? Is he going to be there for us or will he be spread thin and remain a doormat for his family? It’s tiresome for me to think that I have to make him choose between his family and me. Otherwise we are the type of couple that is a match made in heaven. I fear that his over-responsibilty to his family will only break us up again. Am I selfish here? I also fear of losing who I am due to my witnessing my mom lose herself in an abusive relationship. *SIGH* True love – is it good enough to survive?

  19. Lily

    I’m not believing this- I was born in 1977 and dated someone born in 1981 and another who was born in 1973- (an ox and a rooster)
    Both men gave me issues- It didn’t work no matter how much I tried- Its frustrating!!!!!! I’m praying and praying and praying— I am putting myself out there to no avail!!!!! whats next—- forcing someone at gunpoint to marry me???? Getting butt naked????? Help?????

  20. Patty S


    You don’t go far enough back for me to get an answer. Specifically looking for 1941 (snake) and 1955 (??).

    hi there, Beryl Robinson

    Rabbit: 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011
    Ram: 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

  25. Andrew

    I’d like to know about my relationship as well.. is it going to get better, or just false attempts?
    My BD: July 10, 1970
    Wife: January 11, 1972
    I get tired of the rollercoaster.. dunno how much more I can take. She’s better atm, but how long until she goes off the rocker again? Lol.. not funny, but ya, that’s how it’s been for quite a while now.

  26. -quinn ext.5484

    hi jawed,
    this is quinn at ext 5484 and i too love chinese astrology. you and your wife are both born in the sign of the BOAR/PIG.
    it is a 12 year cycle. that is why you are both the same sign although born in different years.

    with metta,

  27. hope

    My Chinese sign is the Tiger and my husband’s is the Pig…for the most part we get along but there are things that cause me to wonder now and again. He puts up with things from his family that would make me want to do major damage and bodily harm to them, it has caused me to sever ties with them. Also there are problems between us because of my looking into the Wicca religion because I have felt that something has been missing,or just not complete,in my life…I feel cornered and do not like it at all.

  28. Leggs

    Nice article on Chinese Astrology. A person born January 31, 1959, what animal sign are they as I did not even see 1959 listed under any of these? Thank you.

  29. Psychic Giovanna x5214

    Hello, my dates and year are 4/19/77 and I’m with a person with the dates of 1/29/66 and am curious of what does the future hold for us and is it the best match? Of course I will and do learn a great deal of life with this person especially with humanity,love for all, especially animals most, and the overall well being. We are going on 3 years now and am I interested in the future we have as I continuously give my energy with hopes of doing and being better and wanting happiness for all. Will I achieve the happiness I long for and want for the both of us or is this a one way street with a dead end? Will I get in return the respect and energy I put out? What are the answers to my questions? Peace, Love and Happiness for all…..
