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 - Tiger: Those born in the Yin years are lenient externally, but unyielding internally, brave and prefer to be praised, but are kind and willing to sacrifice themselves for others. They like to be in the limelight, stubborn in personality, and act arbitrarily. They take risks, like to show off, are very ambitious, and will rush even on frustration with full confidence. They are open, frank and easily trusted. Those Sheng Xiao belonging to Tiger are naturally fond of competitions, not obedient to others. Whether the couples or the lovers, there are often more obstacles in the course.
