Chinese astrology does not only analyze the zodiac animals, Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Chicken, Dog and Dog, characteristics like in the many Chinese horoscopes sites. Chinese astrology mainly uses the theory of Five Elements, Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth to predict people's lucky years and to forecast their Love, Children, Money, Career, and Health.
The 12 animal signs are just the symbols using in the Chinese astrology calendar. The animal signs are not only applied to the birth year but also the birth month, birth day, and birth hour.
Chinese horoscope animal signs are simply determined from people's birth years. However, Chinese astrology reckons up a person's fortune beginning from the birthday, birth month, birth hours, then to the birth year. In other words, the zodiac animal sign from the birth year covers only 25% of your fortune.
The Chinese astrology was derived from the Chinese Yin Yang philosophy. Yin is female and Yang is male. The simple theory for Chinese astrology is Yin Yang must be balanced in the birth chart. The balance brings people peace, which is luck to people.
Ancient Chinese Five-Element scholars broke down Five Elements into Yin and Yang and assigned each animal into an Element group. Thus, a birth chart can completely be converted into a score set of Five Elements. We can determine a person is in luck when the Five Elements are in balance.
There are affinity and enmity relationships among the Five Elements. We can apply these relationships on matching two birth charts to check the personality compatibility for love match purpose. We even can merge the Five Elements scores from two birth charts to check the balance state as marriage advice.
