You have read about using Indian Numerology and Western Astrology to analyse love compatibility. Today you will learn how to analyse love compatibility using the 12 animals of the chinese zodiac and how accurate this method is.
Before I start on the steps on analysing love compatibility through the chinese zodiac signs, let me tell you the story of how the 12 animals came about...
A long time ago, the Jade Emperor in Heaven wanted to find 12 animals to represent each year. He started a race among all the animals.The first 12 that reached heaven will get to rule each year. When the animals knew about this race, all of them started to make their way to heaven.
The Cat and the Rat used to be good friends. The Cat asked the Rat to wake him up the next day, so that they can set off together. The Rat woke up early,feeling very excited, he forgot to wake up the Cat.
On his way to heaven, the Rat met the Ox. Knowing that he could leverage on the Ox, he asked the Ox for a ride. In exchange, he would help the Ox keep a lookout for any dangers during the long journey. The Ox, being an agreeable and easy-going fellow agreed to the Rat's request.
After reaching heaven, the Rat jumped down from the head of the Ox and became the first animal of the Chinese Zodiac. Although this was very unfair for the Ox, he did not hold it against the Rat. In fact, he was happy for the Rat for being number 1.
The Ox became number 2. (This probably explains why Rat and Ox people get along very well). One by one, the other animals came in one by one. Until the Pig, who is the 12th and the last animal.
At this moment...the Cat woke up. When he found out that the Rat left without him, he was furious. To make matters worse, the Rat was number 1. The Cat swore that he'll skin the Rat alive if he ever saw the Rat. Which explains why Cats catch Rats in this present day.
Now, how does all this relate to the present?
Each of the 12 animals rule a year. For example if you are born in 2008, you are born in the year of Pig. You will have a lot of characteristics of the Pig. Next, I will list out all the 12 animals and their order.
1st is the Rat.
2nd is the Ox.
3rd is the Tiger.
4th is the Rabbit.
5th is the Dragon.
6th is the Snake.
7th is the Horse.
8th is the Goat.
9th is the Monkey.
10th is the Rooster.
11th is the Dog.
12th is the Pig.
Basing on your date of birth, you can determine what is your chinese zodiac sign and which animal are you born under. If you have difficulty finding out which animal sign you are born under, you can check out from the internet. There are some sites which let you key in your birth date and returns with your chinese zodiac sign.
Next, you will learn about the affinities between each zodiac sign... There are 2 types of affinities, the first is the affinity group and the second is the affinity pair.
The affinity group consist of 3 animals. There are 4 groups altogether. Here they are...
1st group: Rat,Dragon and Monkey.
2nd group: Ox, Snake and Rooster.
3rd group: Tiger, Horse and Dog.
4th group: Rabbit, Goat and Pig.
As for the affinity pair, there are 6 pairs. Here they are...
1. Rat and Ox.
2. Tiger and Pig.
3. Rabbit and Dog.
4. Dragon and Rooster.
5. Snake and Monkey.
6. Horse and Goat.
You should always choose a partner from the affinity group. Your second choice is from the affinity pair. For example...
If you are born in the year of Rat,you should look for a partner born either in Dragon year or Monkey year. If not, someone born in Ox year is also good for you.
That is for the compatible signs. Now you will learn about the incompatible signs. Incompatible signs are also called clashing signs. They are opposite each other. Here they are...
1. Rat clashes with Horse.
2. Ox clashes with Goat.
3. Tiger clashes with Monkey.
4. Rabbit clashes with Rooster.
5. Dragon clashes with Dog.
6. Snake clashes with Pig.
Basing on the information above, you should not look for a partner born under a sign that clashes with yours.
This method of analysing love compatibility is quite general. You are probably wondering...how about those signs which neither clash nor in affinity, how to gauge their compatibility? A way to do that is to compare both signs' personality then analyse from there. But it's not accurate.
It is also not true to say that couples with clashing signs will not have a lasting relationship. I have came across a number of them who have clashing signs. But they are still very loving. This method only has a 65% accuracy.
But all is not lost. You can still use this knowledge to entertain new friends you meet at social gatherings.
