Chinese Astrology has amazed and mystified many people for quite a number of years. This method involves a story of Buddha's gift to mankind through animals.
The story behind the Chinese Astrology is actually quite interesting. It is said that Buddha had a New Years celebration in which he invited every animal in the world to. The problem came when on the day of the celebration, only twelve animals in the entire world actually showed up to join Buddha for the New Years celebration. While Buddha could have become angered at the other animals for not showing up, he chose another path.
The twelve animals that showed up that night were given an incredible gift. Buddha, in honour of their presence, named a year after each of them. The very interesting part was that each animal was given their year in the order in which that came to the celebration. These twelve animals were what we now know as Chinese Astrology.
There are many interesting facts about many of the animals within this zodiac. The monkey is said to be a very interesting creature. People that are in the year of the monkey are very successful at their future plans and personal goals. People who are in the Year of the Rabbit are very suspicious people. Seeking new ideas and new improvements seem to be the way of the rabbit. The Year of the Dragon is for those who are very independent and thrive on being great at everything they do. For those in the Year of the Dog, forming close relationships is an easy thing to do. The dog also shows a true interest in health and well-being as well.
The Chinese Astrology is very fascinating and many still go by this type of zodiac instead of the regular zodiac. Each year holds something unique and wonderful for all.
