Chinese astrology is a traditional divination system based on the principles of Chinese philosophy and astronomy. It is one of the oldest systems of astrology in the world, dating back more than 2,000 years. Unlike Western astrology, which is based on the twelve zodiac signs, Chinese astrology is based on a twelve-year cycle, each year represented by one of twelve animals. These animals are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.
In addition to the animal sign, Chinese astrology also considers the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water), which are believed to significantly impact a person's personality and destiny. This combination of animal signs and elements is used to create a complex system of astrological analysis to predict a person's future, assess compatibility between individuals, and identify auspicious dates for important events.
Chinese astrology is deeply ingrained in Chinese culture. It is widely used in everyday life, from selecting auspicious dates for weddings and other important events to determining the best career paths and business decisions. It is also popular in other parts of Asia, particularly in Vietnam, Korea, and Japan.
What are the Chinese zodiac signs?
The Chinese zodiac signs
, also known as Shengxiao, are a twelve-year cycle of animal signs that are used in Chinese astrology. Each sign is associated with one of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) and is believed to have a significant impact on a person's personality and destiny.
The twelve zodiac signs in the Chinese zodiac are:
- Rat - (shu)
- Ox - (niú)
- Tiger - (hu)
- Rabbit - (tù)
- Dragon - (lóng)
- Snake - (shé)
- Horse - (ma)
- Goat - (yáng)
- Monkey - (hóu)
- Rooster - (ji)
- Dog - (gou)
- Pig - (zhu)
Each animal sign is believed to represent different characteristics and traits, and is associated with different elements, colors, and lucky numbers. People born in a certain year of the Chinese zodiac are said to inherit the traits and characteristics of the animal sign that corresponds to that year.

Chinese horoscopes are based on the Chinese zodiac signs, a twelve-year cycle of animal signs. Each animal sign is believed to represent different characteristics and traits and is associated with different elements, colors, and lucky numbers. People born in a certain year of the Chinese zodiac are said to inherit the qualities of the animal sign that corresponds to that year.
Chinese horoscopes are often used to provide insight into a person's personality, strengths, weaknesses, and compatibility with others. They can also be used to make predictions about a person's future
and to provide guidance on important decisions.
In addition to the animal signs, Chinese horoscopes also take into account the elements that are associated with each sign. These elements include wood, fire, earth, metal, and water, and are believed to have a significant impact on a person's destiny.
To get a Chinese horoscope reading, you will need to provide your birth year according to the Chinese calendar. A Chinese horoscope chart can then be used to determine your animal sign and element, as well as provide insights into your personality, love life, career, and other areas of your life.
