Chinese Astrology

Chinese astrology is based on twelve animals that represent a cyclical concept of time in contrast to Western astrology that uses the linear concept of time. Chinese astrologers do not take into account the position of the sun, moon, and planets at the time of birth. This astrology is based on Chinese philosophy with harmony between heaven, earth, and water.

The twelve animals which represent the zodiac are the twelve different personality types. The zodiac begins with the sign of the Rat.

Here is a brief introduction to the characteristics of the twelve Chinese Zodiac Signs in the order of their twelve-month lunar cycles over a period of twelve years.
