Let's Take a Look at the Fist 6 Chinese Astrology Calendar Animal Signs, the Chinese Zodiac Calendar and Chinese Zodiac Symbols:
So the 5 elements of Chinese Astrology have been discussed in depth: wood, fire, metal, earth and water.
Check out our Angel and Akashic Record Readings.
Now it is time to move on to the animals that make up the Chinese zodiac calendar. These Chinese astrology calendar animal signs represent 12 different types of personalities.
As you will see, the concept of yin and yang definitely apply.
Traditionally, the Chinese Zodiac calendar starts with the Rat, but it all depends on the order of the characteristics.
One term that you should become familiar with is trine, which simply put is the angle at 120*.
Now, onto the Chinese astrology calendar animal signs and note how there are two sides to every animal...and to every person.
Rat: Yang, 1st Trine with the fixed element of water. Those who are "rats" tend to be forthright, tenacious, intense, meticulous, charismatic, sensitive, intellectual, industrious, charming, eloquent, sociable, artistic and shrewd.
You may be saying "that sounds great," but here's the flip side to what a rat can be.
Individuals with the chinese astrology rat symbol can be manipulative, vindictive, self-destructive, envious, obstinate, critical, over-ambitious, ruthless, intolerant and sadly, they can be scheming. So there is the good and the bad of the Rat via Chinese Zodiac terms.
Ox: Yin, 2nd Trine with the fixed element of water. Oxes are dependable, ambitious, calm, methodical, born leader, patient, hardworking, conventional, steady, modest, logical, resolute and tenacious.
Like the rat, they have a down side as well. Chinese Zodiac Oxes can be stubborn, dogmatic, hot-tempered, narrow-minded, materialistic, rigid and demanding.
Quite the contradiction to be both calm and hot-temprered but by the same token, you may be starting to feel like Chinese Astrology knows you, inside and out.
Tiger: Yin, 3rd Trine with the fixed element of wood. Tigers tend to be unpredictable, rebellious, colorful, powerful, passionate, daring, impulsive, vigorous, stimulating, sincere, affectionate, a humanitarian and generous.
Individuals with the chinese tiger asrology symbol's downfall is that they can be restless, reckless, impatient, quick tempered, obstinate, selfish, aggressive and moody. I will declare that I believe I am a Tiger to the core!
Hare: Yin, 4th Trine with the fixed element of wood. They are gracious, good friends, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, shy, astute, compassionate, lucky and flexible.
They have the flexibility to flip the switch and be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic and stubborn.
Dragon: Yang, 1st Trine with the fixed element of wood.
They are magnanimous, stately, vigorous, strong, self-assured, proud, noble, direct, dignified, eccentric, intellectual, fiery, passionate, decisive, pioneering, artistic, generous and loyal.
But then again, individuals who have the Dragon chinese astrology sign can be tactless, arrogant, tyrranical, demanding, intolerant, dogmatic, violent, impetuous and brash.
Then again, what would you expect from a Dragon, the fire-breathing animal?
Snake: Yin, 2nd Trine with the fixed element of fire. Individuals with the Chinese astrology snake symbol tend to be deep-thinkers, wise, mystic, graceful, soft-spoken, sensual, creative, prudent, shrewd, elegant, cautious, responsible, calm, strong, constant and purposeful.
The down side of being a Snake is that they can be loners, bad communicators, possessive, hedonistic, self-doubting, distrustful, suffocating and cold.
So there are the first half of the Chinese Astrology Calendar Animal Signs. There are still 6 more animal signs to go but take the time to absorb and understand the aspects thusfar.
It seems complicated but when you think of elements, yin and yang and aminals, it all seems to come together in a productive way.
The Chinese Calendar Astrology starts out complex but as we break it down, you will leave with a great knowledge that you can share with anyone and everyone.
