6) Which Chinese Zodiac are You?

Posted on

In Chinese calendar, the 12 animals represent every two hours within the clock.  The concept is similar to Constellation.  The original is unknown, but there are beliefs that the sequence and arrangement of the animals are related to their behaviors and activities.  Each individual takes up two hour.

The first, is the Rat, from 11pm to 1am.  This is the time while rats are most active.

Second, is the Ox from 1am to 3am.  This is the time for cow to ruminant.

Third, is the Tiger, from 3am to 5am.  This is the best time for tiger to hunt food.

Fourth, is the Rabbit, from 5am to 7am.  This is the time for rabbit to grind medicine on the moon.  There is a belief that there is a rabbit staying on the moon in the olden days.

Fifth, is the Dragon, from 7am to 9am.  This is the time when the dragon shuttle in the cloud to make rain for the earth.

Sixth, is the Snake, from 9am to 11am.  This is the time for the snake to start the day.

Seventh, is the Horse, from 11am to 1pm.  This is noon time, and it’s the hottest temperature of the day and the best time for the horse to run about.

Eighth, is the Goat, from 1pm to 3pm.  This is the best time to let goats on the field, while the green grass will make them stronger and healthier.

 Nineth, is the Monkey, from 3pm to 5pm.  This is the most active time for monkeys.

Tenth, is the Rooster, from 5pm to 7pm.  This is the time where chicken return to their home sweet home.

 
Eleventh, is the Dog, from 7pm to 9pm.  This is the time where dogs are on guard.

Twelveth, is the Pig, from 9pm to 11pm.  This is the pigs bed time.

The stories may varies and it takes many years to form the interesting arrangement.  But, culture and fairy tales are the most delighting and joyful stuffs!
The Twelve Animal Kingdom is a twelve cycle that corresponds to Years rather than Months.  So a person can be born in the year of Dragon, Tiger so on and so forth if we mention about the Chinese Calendar Zodiac.
 So, which animal sign are you?
So, which Chinese Zodiac are you?

    I was born in the year of the Dragon. Before I even knew this I was a collector and maker of dragons, was this coincidence?

    Not only is astrology total nonsense, but I was born in the year of the rat! It’s true that I enjoy cheese and my teeth are a bit pointy, but otherwise there’s little resemblance. Except for my burrowing behavior and…..

    I’m born in the year of a Tiger. I love tigers in general. But now I know why no matter how tired, I always wake up when it hits 3-5am and is the most productive in my work..hahaha!!! 🙂

    So, what animal are you? Before I looked at these comments, my inner voice told me that there would be mostly Ox people here. I don’t know how I knew that. I am a sheep by the way. Lazy, easily distracted but love children and animals. 😉

      Sydney Fong responded:
      November 21, 2012 at 9:36 am
