The ancient Chinese people developed a sophisticated science of astrology that continues to have a profound influence in China today. Rooted in the fundamentals of Taoism, it evolved into a system vastly different from Western astrology. Rather than determining personality by the time of year in which you were born, Taoist astrology focuses on the year itself to determine one's character. The years form a twelve-year cycle of signs, each named after an animal. Each lunar year is depicted by a characteristic animal trait; your birth year determines your dominant animal sign. The 12 animals that appear on the Chinese Zodiac calendar include rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and boar.
Chinese Zodiac Symbol - Dog: Those born in Xu years are upright and loyal, full of feelings, and work to their best. They are straightforward, brave, chivalrous, prudent, responsible, humble and loyal. They are upright and pure instinctively, honest and friendly, sympathetic, and frank without any scheming. They are acute in intuition, honest and prefer upholding justice, and are respected by others. In love affairs, the love will not be easily varied. They would rather suffer themselves than bother others, or do something immoral for their own interests.
