Chinese Astrology

Have you ever had a disagreeable partner?

Perhaps he doesn’t like cats because she loves cats. He can’t stand spicy food, but she could live on chilies alone. There are always disagreements about little things which end up building into more significant arguments.

With traditional compatibility tests based on Western Astrology, it is extremely difficult to find this out. But a Chinese Zodiac animal sign reveals a lot about your personality traits, behaviours, and motivations in life, as well as whether two personalities are compatible. It might also reveal other qualities (such as whether you’re is introverted or extroverted).

The astrologers at Star Temple can conduct a Chinese Astrology reading that interprets your zodiac animal signs, and offer advice on how best to deal with an incompatible partner!

How do zodiac animals affect people’s personalities and lives?

Ancient Chinese philosophy has made an impact across the world in fields such as medicine, martial arts, architecture, and folklore. There are many symbols rooted in this tradition which is passed down from generation to generation; here are just a few common examples:

Yin Yang – This symbolizes the balance between feminine energies (Yin) and masculine energies (Yang). According to legend, the god Sì Píng divided the cosmos into male Yin energy & female Yang energy.

Five Elements – These represent wood, water, fire, metal, earth, or groupings within different life cycles for these elements. For example, when talking about people based on where they were born, there would be five types including Rats/Oxen/Sheep who were considered water or wood animals for example.

12 Shi Chen – Each sign represents a single hour and what it means. Depending on your birth date you can be related to one of 12 animal signs starting from a rat at midnight.

The 12 animals connect to people’s birth dates and times, with interactions from the above five perspectives, affecting people’s personalities, compatibilities, and fortune in the future.

Chinese Zodiac Compatibility: Who’s Your Mr./Ms. Right?

The compatibilities of the zodiac animals are mainly based on the Five Elements they belong to – Metal (Monkey, Rooster), Wood (Tiger, Rabbit), Water (Rat, Pig), Fire (Snake, Horse), and Earth (Ox, Dragon, Sheep, Dog).

Traditional Chinese astrology indicates that the Five Elements are in a balanced generating cycle: Fire burns things to ash and Earth; Earth bears Metal inside; Metal turns into liquid (Water) at high temperatures; Water nourishes Wood; Wood feeds Fire. Therefore some zodiac animals with agreeable elements can perfectly support and promote each other when they stay together, while some would stay in peace and tacit agreement; however some restrict or even harm each other when they meet.

See the illustrations below, or use our Chinese astrology reading testing tool to check the compatibility for you and your partner!
