There is a lot of misinformation surrounding the subject of horoscopes. The many people who religiously read their horoscope every day believe that it shapes their lives around that tiny generic blurb. Still there are those who believe that astrology is not a valid way to determine anything. Even though it is generally agreed that your astrological sign is an extremely cheesy way to introduce yourself, there subject of whether people born under specific astrological time periods share common traits is one that requires thorough interrogation. Western astrology looks at a person’s birth time in a given year while the Chinese horoscope places greater significance on the year itself and that makes the big difference.

The Chinese zodiac is boasts a 60 year cycle in a sequence of five sub-cycles of 12 years each. Each sub-cycle has its own horoscope and animal symbol. It is believed that Buddha organized a farewell meeting of animals where he gave out the sequence to the dozen animals in attendance. Each sub-cycle is associated with five elements - wood, metal, fire water and the earth, and the full cycle is complete after going through all the five elements. Even though the elements are believed to influence the characters of the people born in those years, the animal characters and personalities basically remain the same.

For example, the rat, the first animal in the zodiac cycle, is the symbol for those people born in 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008. These people are considered charming, imaginative and truly generous to their loved ones, but are also known to be overly critical and hot-tempered. Such people get along well with monkeys and dragons, but should avoid horses. In terms of career, they are fit for publicists, critics, sales positions or writing jobs.

The Ox on the other hand is the sign for those born in 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009. These individuals are considered powerful with unyielding and stubborn personality traits, but are born natural leaders who typically succeed when opportunity knocks and also make outstanding parents. The Ox gets along with roosters and snakes but not sheep. Such people are conservative, inspiring, upright and easy-going. They make good surgeons and hairdressers.

As the sequence continues, we come to the tiger – people in 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010. The tiger is a fighter and people with this birth sign are generally aggressive, emotional, sensitive, unpredictable, courageous, carefree and capable of great love. Such people make outstanding bosses, matador, race car drivers or explorers. When a tiger marries a dog or horse, the marriage is likely to be happy and lasting, but not a monkey.

The rabbit is the next in the cycle – those born in 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011. Generally affectionate, obliging, talented and always pleasant, these people tend to get too sentimental and superficial, always avoiding conflict and emotional involvement in other people’s affairs. And because they are conservative and cautious, they will not take risk and thus are known to succeed in business, good lawyers, actors and diplomats. They are best suited to marry pigs and sheep, but not roosters.

The other signs are:

• Dragon - born in 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012 – make great artists, politicians, priests and good leaders

• Snake - born in 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013 - very beautiful women

• Sheep - born in 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015 – honest, charming but pessimistic people.

• Monkey - born in 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016 – very intelligent but also very dangerous and thus cannot be trusted.

• Rooster - born in 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017 – shrewd and courageous, but also boastful

• Dog - born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018 – loyal and faithful people to their loved ones. They make excellent businessmen, activists, teachers, or secret agents.

• Pig - born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019 – make

splendid companions, but are extraordinarily naive. The year 2014 is the Chinese Horoscope Year of Horse, a very special sign in its own right. The horse is a sign for people born in 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014. These people are very cheerful, friendly, hardworking and very impatient, but also consider themselves superior to others due to their egoistic and selfish nature. A horse makes a great scientist, adventurer, poet, or politician get along well with dogs and tigers but not rats.

The horse is a very special sign in its own right. Wood is the most favourable for the horse, meaning 2014 is also a wood year. This is generally good luck and so you should go ahead and take chances because the time is right. This year, there are plenty of areas that hold great opportunities, including (but not limited to) travel, the great outdoors, fitness and your social life.

However, you need to think things through first before venturing out. In your career, don't just pack up your desk and leave your job in a self-righteous huff. Consider the consequences because you are likely to get an itch for change where work is concerned, but it's actually not the time to start a bunch of new ventures or to take wild risks. In your relationship, it is a good idea to stay put in your love life this year as well. One day you might feel like you're wildly in love, and the next you're ready to jump ship. Don't do anything until you're sure. Distractions may get in the way of romance, so be aware that a candle needs a match in order to give off light.

Chinese astrology is perhaps the most developed and the most pursued branch of astrology in the world compared to western astrology. While it may not have a strong religious basis and also not very accurate, it is the Chinese horoscope that the western world is most familiar with from the rest of the Chinese astrology. And because people are often referred to by their zodiac animals, babies born in 2014 will be horses and are expected to have personalities that match the horse.

You realize that from all this, you can see that Chinese Zodiac is not a predictive when compare to western astrology. Instead it looks is very philosophical and interpretive. For believers in horoscopes, this is a way to help in understanding their personalities, colleagues at the workplace, their partners and all those in their social spheres.
