Re: Zi Wei Dou Shu

When drawing parallels between different systems, it is also worth noticing how the 12 animals cycle corresponds to Jupiter's (around the Sun). What has been suggested is that the lunar system and 12 years cycle came into China from India, and that the chinese attributed the cycles a name, the animals so well known or important to them in their daily lives back then.
Fun thought: you know how we see the "Dragon" as mythical. No worries! Soon our grandchildren will also only know tigers as Zoo animals and pets since they have no place in the wild anymore, even less so in industrial China So fun.

So in short, it would be worth seeing how one's Vedic and ZWDS coincide. Mine does in terms of Sagittarius Jup. influences etc, and NN or dragon's head.
