What has a clock, the weather and animals obtained to do with each other? The reply is compatibility.
In Chinese Astrology, the yr by which we have been born is represented by one of many 12 animals within the zodiac and one of many 5 parts within the universe i.e. wooden, hearth, earth, steel and water. Each of the animal symbolism is related to a component which has a polarity of Yin and Yang. For instance, an individual may be born within the yr of the Rat with the aspect of Yin Wood. This is predicated on the Chinese system of counting the years often known as the 60 yr cycle. In this cycle, the years are fashioned by the interplay of 10 celestial stems and 12 terrestrial branches. These stems and branches are additionally known as heavenly stems and earthly branches, just because our luck is ruled partly by heaven’s decree and partly by human motion. The 60 yr cycle is a vital function in Chinese Astrology often known as the Four Pillars of Destiny which takes into consideration the yr, month, day and hour of delivery. For need of simplicity, we will take simply the yr pillar to find out the compatibility between animal indicators.
Most persons are accustomed to the 12 animal indicators within the zodiac particularly Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
But are you aware that by trying on the positions of those animals relative to at least one one other on the face of a clock, we will discover out their compatibility?
For occasion, for those who belonged to the animal signal of Rat, you’re most suitable with the Dragon and the Monkey. How? Well, a clock has 12 divisions primarily based on the hour hand. By positioning the Rat at 12 o’clock, you may see that the Dragon and the Monkey, being fifth and ninth within the order by which they take their place within the Zodiac, are four and eight positions aside respectively from the Rat and due to this fact, takes up positions at four o’clock and eight o’clock on the face of the clock. In different phrases, they’re additionally four hourly other than each other. On the face of the clock, they fashioned a “triangle of compatibility” also called three harmonies primarily based on the Four Pillars of Destiny. Hence, these animals get alongside nicely with each other. By extension, all animal indicators which might be four numbers aside within the zodiac are thought of most suitable with each other
The mixtures of animal indicators and their intrinsic parts that type the triangles of compatibility are listed beneath:-
Pig (Yin Water) – Rabbit (Yin Wood) – Goat (Yin Earth)
Tiger (Yang Wood) – Horse (Yang Fire) – Dog (Yang Earth)
Snake (Yin Fire) – Rooster (Yin Metal) – Ox (Yin Earth)
Monkey (Yang Metal) – Rat (Yang Water) – Dragon (Yang Earth)
If you have been to watch intently, in every of the above three animal mixtures, they’re all four numbers aside within the zodiac and correspondingly, four hourly aside on the face of the clock.
On the opposite, if these animal indicators are 6 numbers other than each other within the zodiac or immediately reverse one another on the face of the clock, they’re thought of to be most incompatible. For instance, the Rat and the Horse, being 1st and seventh within the zodiac, takes 1 o’clock and seven o’clock respectively on the face of the clock and therefore, fashioned some of the incompatible twosomes in Chinese Astrology. In different phrases, they conflict with each other.
The following are the 6 clashes between the animal indicators within the zodiac:-
Rat – Horse
Ox – Goat
Tiger – Monkey
Rabbit – Rooster
Dragon – Dog
Snake – Pig
As you may see, the animal indicators we’re born with and their relative positions within the zodiac or on the face of the clock will decide whether or not we get together with each other or clashes. A case of exhibiting animal magnetism or regulation of the jungle so to talk!
