Chinese horoscope: do you already know Chinese astrology? Astrology is the association between planets, events on Earth and the behavior of people.



The Chinese horoscope is different from the Western horoscope, which is based on the solar calendar. In China, the horoscope is based on the lunar calendar, which is the oldest of all.

If you are a zodiac fan and want to know the characteristics of the Chinese zodiac signs, you will love to read our article. You will get to know your origin and also find out what your sign is in the Chinese calendar.

Origin of Chinese Horoscope

If you don't already know, the Chinese horoscope is represented by 12 animals, where each year one of them prevails and each has unique characteristics.

Legend has it that Buddha invited all the animals to a New Year's celebration and promised a surprise for each of them.


However, only 12 animals attended: the Rat, the Ox, the Tiger, the Rabbit, the Dragon, the Snake, the Horse, the Goat, the Monkey, the Rooster, the Dog and the Pig. According to the order of arrival, each one won a year to represent.

Also according to a Buddhist text, as soon as the animals finish their tasks, they make an oath to the buddhas that one of the 12 will be, for a night and a day, in the world indoctrinating and converting, while the others do good and silence.



Each seeks to encourage the natives of their respective signs to do good and observe and police their behavior. In this way, they are able to guarantee order in the universe.

Every 12 years the Chinese horoscope is renewed and returns to the original order. So each sign represents a year, every 12 years.

Chinese Astrology Methods

It is important to say that Chinese astrology is based on the movements of the moon for its analysis, but it also considers the movements of the sun.

As it is based on the lunar calendar, the cycle of signs does not begin exactly on January 1 of the year in question. It usually starts from late January to early February.

The Chinese horoscope also takes into account the relationship between heaven and earth, the five elements: fire, earth, water, metal and wood and the energetic polarity of Yin and Yang.

That is, the signs also have some of these elements. The fact that the same sign has a distinct element brings different tendencies and attributes to each one. Like Water Tiger or Fire Tiger, for example.

Yin and Yang basically represent the positive and the negative and one cannot live without the other. This concept tells us that in order to find balance between mind and body, it is necessary to be in balance between Yin and Yang.


According to Portal Educação, there are 7 laws and 12 theorems about the combination of Yin and Yang energies, check it out:


The laws are:

  1. The whole universe is made up of different manifestations of the infinite unity;
  2. Everything is in constant transformation;
  3. All setbacks are complementary;
  4. No two things are absolutely alike;
  5. Everything has front and back;
  6. The front and back are proportionately the same size;
  7. Everything has a beginning and an end.

Theorems are:


  1. Yin and Yang are two extremities of pure infinite expansion: both present themselves at the moment when the expansion reaches the geometric point of separation, that is, when the energy is divided in two;
  2. Yin and Yang continually originate from pure infinite expansion;
  3. Yang tends to move away from the center; Yin tends to go to the center; And both produce energy;
  4. Yin atrai Yang e Yang atrai Yin; Yin repele Yin e Yang repele Yang;
  5. When potentiated, Yin generates Yang and Yang generates Yin;
  6. The force of repulsion and attraction of all things is proportional to the difference between their Yin and Yang components;
  7. All phenomena have their origin in the combination of Yin and Yang in various proportions;
  8. The phenomena are transient because of the constant oscillations of the aggregations of the Yin and Yang components;
  9. Everything has polarity;
  10. There is nothing neutral;
  11. Big Yin attracts little Yin; the big Yang attracts the little Yang;
  12. All physical solidifications are Yin at the center and Yang at the periphery.

the 5 elements

As mentioned, the Chinese horoscope was also composed based on the 5 elements: fire, earth, water, metal and wood. Each human being is governed by the element corresponding to their date of birth and will have their energy charge and aspects.


Each of the elements is interconnected to the other, it is as if one fed the other, providing harmony with each other. For example, water has a greater influence on fire, but Earth has an influence on it.


To know its element, it is necessary to associate it with the last number of birth. Being:


  • Earth: 8 and 9
  • Fire: 6 and 7
  • Wood: 4 and 5
