The Chinese Zodiac

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step – Lao Tzu”

 I find the background to the Chinese Zodiac really fascinating!

Reputedly Buddha asked the animals of the Earth to meet him for the New Year festivities, but only twelve animals showed up at his party.

Buddha decided to bestow a tremendous reward to each of these twelve animals and named a year after all of them.

The Horoscope years also appear in the order in which the animal guests arrived. If you aren’t sure of your sign, start by taking a look at our Chinese Astrology Year Table to find out which Horoscope animal you are.
