Chinese compare to Western?

State your Chinese Animal and element and your Rising animal.

State your Sun, Moon and Rising.

How do they compare?? Are they completely different, or do they make sense?


I think in Chinese astrology you have 4 different animal signs, but I DONT KNOW. I think the year animal and time of day animal is the most important.

---------------------------------------------------

I'm an Earth Tiger with a Dog Rising.
In Western, I'm a Leo, Virgo Moon, and Capricorn Rising.

I thought the tiger was the same as the Leo in Chinese astrology, but actually they're the opposite. The tiger is similar to the Aquarius sign in Western Astrology which I think is so cool because I love the Aquarius sign.

It makes sense that I'm an Earth Tiger. I have two earth signs for my three main signs in Western astrology. The earth element in Chinese is about the same Western astrology.

Having a dog rising also makes sense. It doesn't make all the sense, but I have my Sun in the 7th house in western, and the Dog is similar to the Libra sign western. So I can see where the selflessness comes from.

Same here! I only knew they gave great importance to the year animal and I've heard time of the day as well. Now I have learnt that there is also day and month animals as well. Verryyyy interesting.

I'm a wood ox and rooster rising. In Western, I'm Scorpio rising, Tauras sun and moon. They sort of make sense to me. Tauras and Ox pretty similar traits. Cannot disagree with the rooster rising traits either.

The rooster = Virgo and the Ox = capricorn. I think capricorns and tauruses are so similar. My dad is a rooster and he's so virgo sometimes.

But it is really interesting having 4 animals.

Re: Chinese compare to Western?

I'm a fire rabbit born in the hour of the rooster. I did notice years ago that rabbit and rooster are opposite signs and my western sun sign Aries is also the opposite sign of my rising libra.

The Chinese book I have says that any animal born in the opposite hour of their sign will produce a complicated soul.

Re: Chinese compare to Western?

Leo tiger: fire + positive wood

A fiery personality that could scorch disrespectful onlookers or others who dare to take him or her granted. A bundle of roars and claws, the Leo Tiger never fails to draw the crowds. Capable of depth and variety in his emotions, this person can be torrid, sulky, and magnanimous all in one breath. He tends to act superior, especially when he is unsure of himself. The Leonine Tiger has very strong recuperative powers, both mentally and physically. And when he or she loves, it's all, all the way.

Was that referring to me? I'm a Leo Tiger with positive EARTH

But still, the Leo Tiger point is on key.

It's just going on that Tiger is wood, not any other elects attached to it.

It's good enough. I think have that book that you took the text from. I remember reading that paragraph. Especially the part that said, "Capable of depth and variety in his emotions, this person can be torrid, sulky, and magnanimous all in one breath."

I swapped it for a computer in the first block of flats I lived in. This neighbour had it and after reading it I said 'il give you my computer for it.' It's in 3 pieces now, and half of it is missing. But t has the western and Chinese combinations. Couldn't even tell you the title of it.

It's just going on that Tiger is wood, not any other elements attached to it. And Leo is fire.

I see you respond well to emotional blackmail, I shall keep that in mind for any future conversations. Typical of a sag male to need a psychologist

Sagittarian Boar: fire and negative water

A candidate for the good citizen award. This combination produces a person with considerable humour and large appetites. Both signs here are noble but naive, although the Archer could be more blunt about announcing his wishes. Jupiter's bounty and the Boar's luck are heaped upon this subject because of his trusting and uncalculating nature. One can count on the Sagittarian Boar to share his last cent with a friend. Neither sign succumbs to despair easily, so this person will be made of sturdy stuff, perhaps even a bit thick-skinned. Yet when he achieves success, he won't hoard his money. He will dole it out and somehow everyone will benefit from his good fortune.

Sounds like CT to me. Hopefully he'll share his wealth with me though

Don't worry, I saw what you were doing. But I wanted to see the excerpt so sure, you win this round.

I'm a bit more selfish than this description states. I don't know aboard "doling out my money" because I have specific plans about what I want to do with it when I get. Others will benefit indirectly.

Google states that naive means unaffected and natural. If that's the meaning the book uses, I agree.

Yeah, it's a bit of a one-dimensional description unfortunately. There was no reason given 'why' the combination produces a 'good citizen.' I do agree with the definition of naive being unaffected and natural, because the opposite would be manipulative and calculated.
