📅 What's my Chinese zodiac sign?

How can you find out if his / her Chinese zodiac sign is right for you? The 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac are compatible according to a circular pattern, within which the animals are connected by four equilateral triangles. The three vertices of the triangle correspond to a specific compatibility trio. The animals of the Chinese zodiac grouped together in one of these four affinity groups (or triangles of compatibility) share common traits of character which give them a particular ability to get along well in love, friendship, family and business (see the graphs below for the meanings of each of the four compatibility triangles).

Love compatibility and energy rebalancing thanks to the 5 elements

In Chinese astrology, the 12 animals-signs of the lunar calendar each have their affinities according to well-established precepts. But the Chinese zodiac signs can also be reduced to the sum of the elements that they carry in them.

Then, one must refer to the creative and destructive cycles of the 5 elements to understand the affinities or oppositions of a couple and how they can adapt their living environment to correct their energies and recreate harmony.

The reasoning is similar to Feng Shui when applied to a place of life (town planning, house, office, garden). The elements of Feng Shui are also the same as in Chinese astrology (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water) except the fact that the time cycles are different and that the directions, essential in Feng Shui, do not come into play for couples compatibility.

Thus, when two people in a couple have a marked imbalance in their respective energetic charts, among the possible solutions, they can adapt their living environment specifically or even provide for the birth of a child so that their baby's Chinese zodiac sign rebalances their energetic set and can therefore become beneficial to their relationship.

For example, a Rat and Horse in a couple are not compatible to begin with because the Rat is Water and the Horse is Fire (see later in the article, the table of the main intrinsic element of each sign) and that Water and Fire are in a destructive cycle (Water extinguishes Fire).

This couple needs Wood to neutralize the Water / Fire opposition (Wood weakens Water and strengthens Fire). In their house, furniture and wooden flooring will be beneficial, choose to live in the countryside rather than the city or have a child whose Wood element is dominant (Tiger or Rabbit) or whose year of birth element is Wood (2024, 2025, 2034, 2035).

Love compatibility triangles

Rat, Dragon, Monkey - The first Chinese zodiac compatibility triangle,  of Yang polarity

The Rat, the Dragon and the Monkey share the same lively, open and flamboyant character, just as they're always very comfortable in society. If they're able to take risks to match their ambition, it's not always a good idea, because their impatience is also synonymous with a potential lack of rigor in the preparation of their projects. On the other hand, the Rat, the Dragon, and the Monkey are overflowing with original and surprising ideas, which, combined with their fierce will, enabling them to achieve their goals most of the time, as mad as they may seem to ordinary mortals.

Ox, Snake, Rooster - The second Chinese zodiac compatibility triangle,  of Yin polarity

The Ox (Buffalo), the Snake and the Rooster (Chicken) share the same professional values, namely a capacity to commit themselves over time with seriousness, while overcoming the many pitfalls that they may encounter along the way. The physical and intellectual endurance of the Ox, the Snake and the Rooster, is not without a certain slowness in their decision-making, for if they like to take responsibility, they prefer to calculate the risks they take with great care. One might finally note that they're not the most demonstrative of the 12 animals of the Chinese calendar, and that for them the feelings seldom take precedence over the things of the mind.

Tiger, Horse, Dog - The third Chinese zodiac compatibility triangle,  of Yang polarity

The Tiger, the Horse and the Dog share the same idealism, the same sense of probity and the same pleasure for good meals among friends. With their unparalleled vivacity, they tend to be over demanding with their loved ones, even aggressive when they feel locked against their will. However, the sense of justice of the Tiger, the Horse and the Dog is without comparison to the other signs of the Chinese zodiac, for the rigor of their conscience is the first of their virtue.

Rabbit, Goat, Pig - The fourth Chinese zodiac compatibility triangle,  of Yin polarity

Among the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac, Rabbit (Hare, Cat), Goat and Pig (Boar) are probably the ones who most successfully understand and exploit their emotions. Thus, they're often turned towards artistic activities, while at their own expense they may also be subject to the doubt and anguish of sensitive and refined people. The Rabbit, the Goat, and the Pig are, however, much stronger than they seem to be. They know how to adapt to a new environment and take advantage of unexpected circumstances, just as they rarely hesitate to enjoy the hospitality and friendliness of others. Charming and well-read, they love above all their tranquility and comfort, so much that if they feel perfectly at ease in society, solitude does not frighten them at all.
