Chinese Astrology: Did you know that Chinese astrology predates western astrology?
Similar to Western astrology that uses twelve signs such as Aquarius, Aries, Taurus, etc., there are twelve signs in Chinese astrology that are depicted by animals.
Unlike western astrology that uses the solar year calendar, most Chinese astrologers use a lunar calendar and base their calculations solely on the moon's cycles.
Each astrology sign in Western astrology is associated with certain traits.
Each of the twelve animal signs falls into an animal trine and is associated with a person's birth year rather than their birth date as in Western astrology.
