Chinese Horoscopes

Chinese Horoscopes may not have any religious basis. However, if it’s based on 5,000 years worth of human observation, similar trends can be found. It is the culmination of 5,000 years of observation by the ancient Chinese scholars to culminate into the analysis of each sign. Some are very accurate. Observation is the best way to gather information.

The Chinese Lunar horoscope is different from the  Western zodiac. The year you are born in isn’t the only thing taken into consideration, but also the month you were born, the time of your birth and your Western zodiac sign.

It is always interesting and entertaining to read about yourself, your good points and your horoscoped weaknesses. I guess knowing more about yourself will help you to work on what you need to work on.  It is nice to know who you can work, partner, and be friends with… also who you would find some conflict with perhaps. Of course getting along and not getting along ultimately relies on you. But it is interesting to see who you have ‘natural’ conflicts with if no efforts were made towards the relationship. It is also interesting to share with friends personality traits of people you would like to understand more about. It is always nice to have a some lead in order to find a beginning in our relations with others.

I thought this section on horoscopes would keep you coming back for further contemplations and it’s always interesting to find out more about others. Horoscopes should not be used as a weapon or be fixed. Whatever personalities are described of each sign has many mitigating factors and everything can be changed or overridden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashioned sincerity for others. Do not think whatever a horoscope says is fixed or permanent. It is a general guide to start from somewhere but don’t be stuck where it is… nothing is stagnant.  For example Snakes do not get along with Boars according to the horoscopes… But they can get along if they work at it. Horoscopes help you find ahead of time what we need to be aware of with other I guess.

Do take a look below to see which animal sign you are… It will lead to interesting discussions, ideas, and introspection’s. Have fun and enjoy. I put it here for my blog friends to enjoy… so please enjoy and share with others!!!

    Even though Chinese read and some rely on Chinese horoscopes there are also people from different Western countries who do. But as Rinpoche writes here these horoscopes do not mean that they are 100% accurate as each individual has his/her own mind. They are a good guide and I agree one should not get caught up in them thinking that a person’s characteristics according to the Chinese horoscopes are fixed and that he/she cannot change.

  6. VC on Aug 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Chinese horoscope is written by human.Human make mistakes and not God.Our life is fixed at birth.Human beings is watch by ’28 constellations heavenly beings’ up in the heaven monitoring each and every human beings deeds.i am not sure which heavenly beings responsible to fixed human life at birth or it is just follow some causal laws.It is written in some of buddhism books.So why bother horoscope if there is a religion to follow.I guess the heavenly beings will send their heavenly retinue or sages such as Sakyamuni Buddhas down to earth to save and liberate humanity when the time is right.

  7. Su Ming on Aug 23, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Horoscope and Zodiac Signs used to be my favourite topic to read beginning of every year. I used to have many books by various author. It was like my bible….ie will I be rich? will my career be successful? who and what to avoid?, which animal sign should I avoid or be friends with? and etc..hehehehe.

    But after knowing dharma I realised that it is not the signs or animal that you were born under which mold us but the karma (good and bad) which is the driving force of who we are and MOST IMPORTANTLY how we can change things around for the better.

  8. Nicholas on Aug 23, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    To be frank I didn’t really follow much on horoscope.
    Use to think that attitude and behaviors influences by family, environment and friends. Not even bother to analyze or want to know peoples character as just so ignorance and selfish.

    But after learning about compassion (which is still learning) we need to understand and even have to be more mindful about people personality.

    Not to criticize but knowing how to work with them. As Rinpoche mentioned the personalities can be changed with patience, kindness & sincerity. By knowing our shortfall and we recognize it, it’s time to work on it for better.

    Thanks Rinpoche for blogging this.
    A lot of people said it is so true to them. Me too. Hehehe…..

  9. VC on Aug 23, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    This horoscope is quite different because it is written by an enlightened beings and not ordinary human beings.it might refer to anyone of you.hehehe.

  10. oscar on Aug 23, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Rinpoche~~~didn’t know you like horoscope as well! :D Am doing vedic astrology and sometimes I recommend Kechara to my customers. Explore vedic astrology as well ya~~! I know next year there will be a very powerful and inspirational spiritual person rising from Asia.. is it you? :D :D :D -ur fb fan-

  11. Janice Kwok on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Towards the end and beginning of each year, i wld start veering myself to the section on horoscopes, both western and the chinese, to read and check on what is store for me for the year..really kiasu…hahahha. Having started now on Dharma, it is interesting to read it, not becos, the prophecies/projections by those authors will be more real but you start to think why did i become so uptight when i used to deal with those horoscope signs that are said to be less compatible with me? Thank you Rinpoche for starting this section to teach us who have heavy negative karma to learn how to contemplate and change our minds and behaviour towards others.

  12. Steve Tobias on Aug 24, 2011 at 10:06 am

    This is very interesting, looked up myself (Dog) and a few other people and it’s pretty accurate.

    I had someone close to me who was very into astrology. I found it frustrating because often times it made her very fearful and anxious, sort of defeatist, like things are a certain way and one can’t change them or act. It seemed to contradict karma, and cause negative results.

    If astrology and horoscopes are accurate then maybe we have the karma to be born under a certain sign at a certain time — it would make a lot of sense.

  13. patsy on Aug 24, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    Even though I do not have an interest in horoscope, out of curiosity I check out my sign and a few of my family members and find that it is quiet accurate.

  14. Tsem Rinpoche on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    Horoscopes are a general overview, but everything can be changed. Karma is not solid and permanent hence, neither are the horoscopes. If we do nothing, then what the horoscopes can reflect what is happening with us…but If we do something about it we can override everything in horoscopes and samsara.

  15. Frederick Law on Aug 25, 2011 at 12:04 am

    thank you for sharing the horoscope with us Rinpoche. i must say i was an avid believer in horoscope especially when it comes to the chinese animal zodiac during every chinese new year, i was so eager to know what is the luck of my zodiac sign on the coming new year, i am born in the year of Dog. most of the time what the horoscope predicted might be accurate, but most of the time its not, but still delusions clouded me, and i keep on reading for so many years, and still believing in the prediction.

    it is when i learn Dharma, and understand about the cause and effect of Karma, and from Dearest Rinpoche explanation here, i started to see how the luck of one person does not really depends on the horoscope foretold, for horoscope is just a guide and prediction, but it is us who determine how the course of our life should be, even we can override the negative things through applying dharma. for it is due to our low minded thinking and the ignorance of karma that we blame luck, surrounding and ppl on on our misfortune.

    Thank You again Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article with us, for many to learn more about other zodiac sign, and in the same time allowing us to understand we can override what is negative in horoscope fortune telling.

    i wish Rinpoche good health and long life. with folded hands.

  16. yek yee on Aug 25, 2011 at 1:45 am

    When I just born, my parents already used Chinese horoscope to identify my character which I hated they do like this. After I had growth up, I started read the horoscope, ya sometime it is quite accurate.But, as a reference or self-reflection is good, to me. Especially the main character is quite accurate!!!I like the part “How to work with…” very useful,hehe…!!!In Chinese we called 知己知彼,百战百胜也!

    • Frederick Law on Aug 25, 2011 at 5:20 pm

      i agree, in chinese horoscope, character wise it is 90% accurate, but still the environment and people they mingle with also plays a part in shaping their character, so it is mostly like a guide to scan through the principal of the nature.

  17. Uncle Eddie on Aug 26, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    Like our guru said, “Horoscopes are a general overveiw, but everything can be changed, so can karma also.” It all depends on whether the person has a strong determination and desire to overcome the undesirable predictions to make the necessary changes. Even the culmination of human observations centered on their trends of longtime behavioural traits can never be as impregnable as that of karma. HOWEVER, the strong belief on horoscope reading is no more centered on the chinese and asian nationals only. Many non-chinese nationals from the americans and european blocks have joined in the the astrological wagon, to propel the futuristic forecast into a reality for a good future. Every living being from the time of their birth wants happiness and not sufferings. It is therefore important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness depending upon their own efforts and not on the forecast of the horoscopes.

    The element you are born into has tremendous effect on your personality. A fire snake would be more aggressive than those born under a water snake. Water snakes are more quiet and not as aggressive but very versatile. Metal snakes are more stubborn or stuck on ideas as oppose to a fire snake. Fire snakes can be very vengeful where as a wood snake is more forgiving. Elements are important to understand and how it affects you. Take a read and learn up about yourself.

  21. AdelineTan on Aug 19, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Out of curiosity i just read my horoscopes from here and found it to be very true and i enjoyed reading it he he.

  22. David Lai on Aug 19, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    I love Chinese horoscopes because like many other ancient Chinese esoteric knowledge, I find them to be accurate and strangely compelling. However, I am not really a fan of the predictive quality of Chinese horoscope but I do find that psychological aspect very interesting. I think the account on my horoscope was pretty accurate with a few minor misses.

    I think this observational knowledge makes for an accurate description of the personalities of each of the zodiac sign. I believe that this is a good guide for people and can be somewhat Dharmic is the self-reflection and helps us to apply the right remedies to counter character flaws and weaknesses. It would definitely help us to work or get along with certain characters as well. Ultimately, the Dharma is the best Zodiac for people. It just needs us to apply it and experience the rewards of transformation.

  23. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Aug 19, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    It was interesting to know our behaviour under chinese horoscope. But of course it was a guidance only, , everyone still different characters even though under same group.btw, I m a dragon.

  24. tenzin llhamo on Aug 19, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the above. As mentioned, above are based on years of observation and shouldnt let it control who we really are. Although it might say that certain signs are not compatible but if we work towards it, we can definitely work well with each other and people around us. I dont actually believe in these signs but no harm reading about it and get some info here and there.

  25. Jessica Yap on Aug 20, 2013 at 1:54 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I am a tiger, hear me roar! Hehe
    Some traits do stand true! And I even looked up the signs of my friends and family and it describe their nature well. :)

    Sometimes if we know how certain people are, we can learn deliver our speeches and actions in a skillful manner.. It doesn’t mean that this is the manual for life to dictate how a certain horoscope should be. It is merely a guideline to learn more abt ourselves and the people around us so that we can communicate better to have a better relationship. :)

    Thnk you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  26. Adrian Cho on Aug 21, 2013 at 3:41 am

    This is so wonderful and meaningful too, that I can knows more about Chinese Horoscopes of each sign. I also can read through every sign on this blog.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice post.

  27. wansan on Aug 23, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    I’m always interested in reading my own horoscope and zodiac. Every morning I will flip over my Star Newspaper to the part where the Horoscope is and read them. Of course like what Rinpoche says, “Horoscopes should not be used as a weapon or be fixed. Whatever personalities are described of each sign has many mitigating factors and everything can be changed or overridden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashioned sincerity for others.” I use them as a guideline of the day so that I know ‘who’ or ‘what’ to avoid/pay more attention to. Thank You Rinpoche
    for sharing this.

  28. Cliff on Aug 24, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    I don’t really know how much i can trust or believe in Chinese Horoscopes although it may most of the time be quite accucrate, we should still have to see it as a scientific fact that it is true because it has gone through 5000 years of observations so it should count for something i think haha. I am a snake and after reading through the description of the strength and weakness i do agree and disagree in certain areas but maybe in denial or over confident to certain descriptions. But it is definitely very entertaining and fun to read Chinese Horoscopes. One fact i strongly agree with is that snakes find it very difficult to have trust in others which has to be earned but can be easily lost when lied to, deceived or betrayed. I find it very hard to trust people and am quick to be judgemental, i hope i would be able to change and improve one of these personality traits of mine. Thank you for sharing this with me Rinpoche, i found it very interesting to read.

  29. Shelly tai on Aug 27, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    Dear Rinpoche thank you for sharing this information . I used to like to read about my fortune during beginning of every year that was those day before I meet the dharma, after knowing the dharma I think the important thing is our mind how our mind react to sudden situation with dharma even is a negative situation we can use dharma to resolve our problem. As a guide I think is good to know someone horoscope so that we can talk to them more easily.

  30. Albert Ratchaga on Aug 28, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Horoscope is through 5000 years of observation and being set with the closest possibilities of each and every character, it is the same as how Buddha observe and learn from the human life’s cycle and gain realization, I would say Horoscope is quite accurate when we live our life accordingly but it still does not work on every single human being, because of different background and situation.

    I used to have friend who are very obsessed about horoscope, they would look at horoscope in the morning almost on a daily basis, when there is days that they missed out the horoscope, they will feel very uneasy for the day and trying to reduce their activity almost to the minimum. there is so much of insecurity in their life. Horoscope may be accurate in certain way, it actually meant as a guidance for us and not for us to live in it.

    If a person who knows to utilize horoscope, they should learn about their ‘potential’ weaknesses and to work on the improvement, not ignore it and hope for miracle. We reap our own created karma, no one horoscope can help us to avoid our karma, we still have to work our way through for any and every situation arises.

    点击看看你是属于什么。我是天秤鼠,蛮准的。为什么我们会在那个时辰,日子出生,必定和我们前世自造的业力有关。我们了解自己的基本性格后,不是停留在哪儿,而是学习如何将优点变得更好,改善缺点。

  32. Low KHJB on Aug 31, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.The Chinese horoscopes did highlight some of my characteristic. But I would take it to be a strong reminder to myself to be more mindful in my thoughts and action when I am dealing with others.Every action there would be a reaction.If I would be kind to others then reaction would be similar.I the context of my horoscope,my own ego and arrogance would be my biggest challenge to sub due .I would use the knowledge of the dharma to assist my self to follow the right path to overcome the so called inner nature of the Chinese horoscopes.

  33. CK Siah on Sep 6, 2013 at 5:38 am

    仁波切的十二生肖算命图都很精准。是可以为我们的人生做参考,但不要太谜信。

    我个人认为其实我们的生晨八字就是我们人生的功课表和业障印记,个人的好坏性格都被记录下来。

    但我相信只要我们相信佛法和禅修自己或跟着上师的教诲,累积功德,那我们的命运也会跟着改善。

    谢谢仁波切给我们的分享。

  34. Adrian Cho on Sep 19, 2013 at 6:14 am

    I keep coming back to this chart and its quite incredible how relevant most of the information is in here. It really sums up someone rather well… It gives an insight into why someone is the way they are and it is all due to the time they were born.

    Could the time one is born be the workings of Karma as well? It surely must be as highly attained masters have total control over their rebirth, they could in fact choose the time/year they are born into… simple logic. Or do they by sheer workings of karma are born into such times based on their merits… hhmmmm… I wonder?

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

I get thanks and appreciations very often from people all around the world for my blog (www.tsemrinpoche.com). Majority of the people I do not have the pleasure to know who they are. Yet they write in always. They read and leave comments on the blog also. We get now between 100,000 to 120,000 views per month now on my blog I am told and it is consistent ever month. I am AMAZED, HUMBLED AND HAPPY. I am glad so many around the world learn and benefit from my humble blog. I received two messages today. One from Penang (North Malaysia) and one from Italy thanking me for the blog and how much they learn from my blog and how much they appreciate it. It makes all the hard work worth it. Wonderful. Thank you everyone for the learning and feedback. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

Wonderful! Today I went out briefly from my retreat and I found a BEAUTIFUL holy Dalai Lama pendant in a store. Am not going out much these days at all. It's nice to have His Holiness close to my heart. I wore the pendant immediately. When I was a child, people had similar ones and I always wanted one. Many of the Kalmyk people would wear it. Now I have one of my own. I really like it. Tsem Rinpoche.. Myself requesting H.H. Dalai Lama to bestow on me ordination: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=19322

A beautiful Lord Manjushri arrived and He is in standing form. Absolutely beautiful. only around 8 inches in height and very graceful. I really treasure all forms of Manjushri and He is gracing my working table where I can see him very clearly. I offer incense to Him throughout the day as I do my work. I like to have incense and offerings throughout the day as much as possible. In fact 24 hours a day.

Locked up her whole life. Never sees sunshine, grass, dirt, or the sky. She is forced to lay eggs constantly and daily. She does so until she's dead, then they send her to be eaten. She has no feathers and can barely stand due to no space and sunlight. She is locked in this tiny space always.

This is one of the best Avalokitesvara thangkas I have ever seen. I rarely see an Avalokitesvara that draws me or I really like. I am very particular about thangka paintings. But this one is really done by a super skilled artist. The eyes are perfect and the gaze is the correct angle of calm/contemplativeness. The lips, nose and proportions are stunning. The coloring and feel is regality and serenity with great compassion. He feels alive. I would love to get a copy of this very much. Tsem Rinpoche

Look at this massive thangka of the Lord of Wisdom Manjushri in Tibet. The bigger the thangka it is believed, the more blessed the area will be. See all the people congregated around it to pay homage and make offerings. Amazing. May you all be blessed by this too and be connected to Manjushri. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    Very touching video...Buddha said it was very important to visit the four holy places associated with Him before our deaths. Remembering this, I had instructed Paul to take this senior group to Bodhgaya and make sure they are able to plant imprints. When this life of 'fun', money, parties and socials are over, we cannot leave empty handed. Tsem Rinpoche
