CHINESE HOROSCOPE FOR 2004


Astrology is certainly one of the most ancient philosophies still in existence in China. Some estimate it to be more than 3,000 years old but recent study of more esoteric beliefs place it further back into the clouded past of human history. In ancient China, and up until today Astrology has been used to predict what happens to countries, the outcome of wars, economic trends and much more.

Unlike the western horoscope that is based on the months, the Chinese horoscope works on the Chinese year of birth. Those who are born between January and February could be considered as in the cusp.

The years are grouped under 12 animal designations.

It is believed that Lord Buddha asked all the animals to come to him but only 12 obeyed and turned up. As a reward, he named a year after each animal in the order of arrival - Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

The animal ruling the year of your birth has a major influence on all aspects of your life. The time of day and the season of birth also have some influence.
