The Chinese Zodiac

The Chinese Zodiac, deeply entrenched in Chinese culture and philosophy, is a system of astrology that has captivated the imaginations of people for centuries. Dating back to ancient times, this celestial calendar comprises twelve animal signs, each representing a year in a twelve-year cycle, along with their associated traits and characteristics.

These animals, in order, are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Legend has it that the Jade Emperor, ruler of the heavens, organised a race and named each year of the zodiac after the order in which the animals crossed the finish line.

Each animal embodies unique qualities and attributes, influencing the personalities and destinies of those born under its sign. The Chinese believe that one's zodiac sign not only determines their character but also influences their compatibility with others, career prospects, and even auspicious times for significant life events.
