The Chinese Zodiac

 

The Chinese Zodiac is an integral part of everyday life in Chinese culture and is popular in many East Asian and Southeast Asian countries like Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. 

The Lunar New Year begins each year on the second new moon after the winter solstice. This year, it starts on February 1, 2022.

The Chinese Zodiac is used to determine your fortune for the year, marriage compatibility, career path, best times to have a baby, and more. The Chinese Zodiac originates from ancient zoolatry (animal worship), with the system dating back to the Qin dynasty, more than 2,000 years ago.

Legend has it that the Jade Emperor summoned all the animals to his palace in a “Great Race”, and the order in which they arrived determined the animal’s place in the zodiac.

The Chinese zodiac features 12 animal signs in this order: 

  1. Rat
  2. Ox
  3. Tiger
  4. Rabbit
  5. Dragon
  6. Snake
  7. Horse
  8. Goat
  9. Monkey
  10. Rooster
  11. Dog
  12. Pig

Pig (猪 / Zhū)

People born in the year of the Pig are logical thinkers and are able to fix any problem they come across. They aren’t great communicators, but they’re kind and able to provide for the family. Pigs’ only obvious fault is that they lose their temper easily.

Pigs are diligent, compassionate, and generous. Though Pigs rarely seek help from others, they never refuse to help those in need. Pigs never suspect trickery, so they are gullible and easily fooled.

Generally speaking, Pigs are relatively calm when in the face of trouble. No matter how challenging the situation, they can handle their own. Pigs have a great sense of responsibility to finish what they started.
