What Is Chinese Astrology?

Our guide is going to help you learn more about your sign and the entire Zodiac. First, though, we need to answer a more basic question: what is Chinese astrology?

The short answer is that astrology is a special system of knowledge that helps us learn more about ourselves and other people. And when you combine knowledge about an individual with knowledge about the Zodiac and things like the relationship between yin, yang, and your own animal sign, you can gain some very unique insights.

How does astrology provide this insight? Let’s take a closer look at how it works.

Different Zodiac Characteristics

You are probably aware that the different Zodiac signs have different characteristics. But what are these characteristics and what do they mean?

As with Western astrology, there are 12 different Zodiac signs in Chinese astrology. Instead of your birth month, though, your sign is determined by the year that you were born. 2008, for example, was the year of the Rat, and 2019 was the year of the Pig.

The animals that represent each of these signs have their own unique personalities. And these personalities help us gain additional understanding of the people born in a certain year.

As you may already know, yin and yang play a major role in Chinese astrology. Half of the signs are yin and half of the signs are yang. Understanding whether someone’s sign is yin or yang can help them gain additional insight, but they will also need to know a bit more about the role of the planets and how to live in an astrological state of feng shui.

The Special Role of Planets

As with Western astrology, the planets play a special role in Chinese astrology. The planets that are easily visible (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) are connected to the five elements: (respectively, water, metal, fire, wood, and earth). And these planets play a special role in the personality of a person depending on when they were born.

Proponents of Chinese astrology pay special attention to the year, month, day, and even the hour in which a person was born. Each of these may correspond to different planets (as well as the sun and the moon) that helps us learn more detailed information about someone’s personality and, potentially, even their future.
