The Chinese Zodiac

Discover more about yourself according to ancient Chinese tradition

Every individual’s personality has a centered “self” and many layers around it. Each layer has a different size, texture and aura, and when combined, it makes up who the person truly is. The Chinese Zodiac or Chinese Horoscope uses details of your birth to determine your basic personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, your compatibility with other people and even to forecast your future.

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.

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.

Daily Horoscope
Chinese astrology is possibly the most developed and the most popular type of astrology in the world. It is not a predictive art like the Western Zodiac, but leans towards the interpretive and philosophical. Select your Chinese Zodiac sign to reveal what lies in store for you.

Elements
The 5 elements – Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, Earth – are an integral part of the Chinese Zodiac which define a universal balance. Every one of us are made up of these elements and are deeply connected to them. A person’s characteristics are determined both by the ruling element of their sign as well as the element of the year of their birth.

Rising Sign
One of factors that affects a person’s characteristics is the time of birth. E.g. A Rooster born in the hour of the Ox will have a different personality compared to a Rooster born in the hour of the Snake. The sign related to the hour of birth is called the Rising Sign, and the individual will experience the effect of the Rising Sign in various degrees.

East Meets West
Another factor which affects a person’s characteristics is the Sun sign. The Sun signs are also known as the Western Zodiac, and they parallel the Chinese Zodiac signs. Combining a Western sign with the Chinese sign will give further insight into an individual’s personality, reinforcing, weakening or diversifying the person’s characteristics.

Buddhist Protectors
When the Chinese Zodiac reached Japan, it became very popular among the Japanese. As Buddhism is also very strong in Japan, the Chinese Zodiac soon became linked to their religion, where 8 Buddhist Protectors became associated with each of the 12 animals of the horoscope, giving their blessings to the people of each sign.

Relationship Compatibility

Besides knowing about the characteristics of your Chinese Zodiac sign, what about when it comes to the people around you? Which other Chinese Zodiac sign best suit yours, when it comes to relationships?

Relationship compatibility within the Chinese Zodiac mostly takes into account the general characteristics for each animal. However, every individual will place their own unique twist on the basic characteristics. That being said, it’s always fun to read about how well (or not well) you match with your partner

Here is a tool for you to test your compatibility with your partner by entering both your Chinese Zodiac sign and your partner’s sign. Have fun reading, and try it out with all your friends!

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!!!

    The E Division team , beng kooi, lew, cynthia, justin, jean ai, jean mei and wai meng have been working very hard on this new function. Especially Lew, Cynthia & Beng Kooi. I have been looking forward to this for weeks. It is going to be fun to see the compatibility of my birth signs with the rest and vice versa. Enjoy!!!

    Freaking cool, now whenever I meet someone I can come to the blog to profile them top to toe East to West quite literally.

    FB profiles, here we come, birth dates and western zodiacs, make for some interesting combinations in love and war… well less war huh!

  3. Steve Tobias on Sep 20, 2011 at 12:43 am

    Wow very cool. Astrology communities will love this and maybe get some dharma.

  4. JP on Sep 20, 2011 at 2:13 am

    The horoscope reading is amazingly accurate. Fun! Been reading on my friends’ horoscope. Great guidelines to learn how to communicate effectively with my friends.

    Effective communication is important because many problems are created from miscommunication. It’s part of practising dharma to put in the effort to understand another person.

  5. Sabina on Sep 20, 2011 at 5:38 am

    This section is so much fun, interesting and so very well done!!
    Biggest Thanks to all of you who worked on it!! You guys rock!! :D

    I love this section! It’s very informative and by reading other horoscopes, i get to know more about the people around me, the guidelines can help me on how to effectively work and communicate with my colleagues and friends. Thank you E-div and blog team for your hard work posting this up for us

  8. tenzin llhamo on Sep 20, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Thank you very much to all those that did the blog on Zodiacs…It’s very interesting to learn so much on Rinpoche’s blog! Every blog is FUNTASTIC!

  10. Sock Wan on Sep 21, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    Thank you, our eDiv folks.. it is a very interesting calculator, finding out the characteristic by our birth date..

  11. Ethan Chu on Sep 21, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    The e-division has been working tirelessly for this new function to come out. and they did it!!! Great work guys!

    Now, i can spend hours reading up on myself and friends… hehe.. Thankyou guys for the hardwork.

  12. bengkooi on Sep 22, 2011 at 7:16 am

    Its fantastic how horoscopes can teach people to be better, kinder, less angry, more patient etc…. what a great tool to impart good human values on others!

    The writers really worked super hard on this – researching, comparing notes, writing etc… without the content, would be nothing to talk about! They did it uncomplainingly, lead by Jean Mei, who worked overtime to pull the content together. The only thing we could not write original content for is the Daily Horoscopes… I do hope someday that there will be an astrologer among us who is able to do this pro bono!

  13. beckanelli on Oct 8, 2011 at 9:11 am

    I love reading Chinese Zodiac out of curiosity and fun. Sometimes I find it accurate, sometimes not so. I find this information pretty accurate and take note of my weaknesses I have to work on. Thanks to the wonderful e-team for putting so much of hard work into this.

  19. Shin Tan on Jun 17, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Thank you for this simple and easy “just click” app. Now I can be a fake feng shui/ astrologer and dispense zodiac advice. Hehehe (kidding!)

    The Chinese Zodiac (生肖), is a system that relates each year to an animal and its reputed attributes, according to a 12-year mathematical cycle and is popular in several East Asian countries such as China, Korea and Japan.

  20. nicholas on Jun 18, 2012 at 11:50 am

    Knowing the characteristic our Zodiac sign and others not just about knowing it for personal advice but it’s also to understand others and how we can get and work together to achieve harmony.

    Thanks Rinpoche for this great sharing.

  21. Joy on Jun 21, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    This is such an awesome section in the blog because like it or not, we love to read about our characters and other people’s. This is not superstitions…it is ancient science which has been around for ages and practised in many cultures. It is a guideline for us to gauge and learn about ourselves and others so we can get along better or better yet induced with Dharma… to help the other person better. Perhaps if we know that particular person’s qualms and quirks… we can better serve/benefit them ;)

    The blog team worked really really hard in researching and writing and creating this whole section up!!! Thank you selfless ppl. And thank you Rinpoche!

  22. Wan on Jun 26, 2012 at 4:57 am

    i share this site with my friend and we are fascinated with what it say and could not stop to try on the birthday of people whom we know..

    Thank you for sharing the chinese Zodiac which we can learn and use it to improve our weak points.

  23. Julia Tan on Jul 9, 2012 at 9:39 am

    Interesting Chinese zodiac sign to discover & learn! Every year before or during CNY, especially among Chinese would love to get their fate predicted reading their Chinese zodiac sign. Thank you E-division team for all the handwork on research and write up. I enjoy it a lot.

    Rinpoche’s blog has so many interesting reads. So many information are available just on this post. In the past I have read the characteristics of animal signs and find them fascinating. This post provides me with more information and knowledge.

  27. Li Kheng on Jul 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    What I like most about this horoscope is: it gives us a general idea about our natural tendencies but it also proposes efforts we can consciously make to overcome the “weakness” we may possess. This is very typical of Tsem Rinpoche where I learn that we have the power to make a change.

    I remember that Karma Chart that Tsem Rinpoche created where Rinpoche showed us that the choices we make and the action we take can cause a change to our so called destiny. For example, we can engage in purification acts like consistent daily sadhana, puja etc. to purify our negative karma (black karma). This approach to viewing karma is very empowering because we do not just say: oh, it is my karma to be lazy…it is my karma to be a failure etc. If we view karma the way Tsem Rinpoche has taught us, we can say: yes, I must have very strong imprints of laziness due to habituation from past lives. However, if I practice moral discipline and develop the new habit of being hardworking, I can collect the merits to purify my negative karma and cause the creation of positive karma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always giving us the opportunity to learn and be better.

  28. DR on Jul 12, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    This is a very comprehensive writeup. Thank you to all involved in this effort. You must have done alot of research to be able to come up with all these information. Even navigation is easy.

    Very often i refer back to this blog post after meeting someone new. It is akin to looking at the shape of the spout of a teapot and you will know how best to pour the tea without spilling it. When you know of a person’s strength and weaknesses, you will know how best to harness their strength while helping them improve their weaknesses.

    Having said that, these facts are basic characteristics of people in general. Their personality and perspective changes after they receive dharma knowledge. So I would use these information wisely and not blindly.

  29. Koh Hee Peng on Jul 13, 2012 at 12:34 am

    This particular page on Chinese Zodiac definitely has improved signficantly as compared to my last visit. Now this page is very user friendly and whatever information that we need pertain to the Chinese Zodiac is just within a click of a button on the main page itself, be it the relationship 2 different chinese zodiac, or the relationship between the Chinese and Western Zodiac on the month that we were born.

    Many thanks to the efforts from E-Division that make Chinese Zodiac fun to learn :D .

  30. Uncle Eddie on Jul 16, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    Rinpoche has indicated that though chinese horoscopes may not have any religious basis, but it is based on 5,000 years worth of human observation by ancient chinese scholars. The culmination into the analysis of eachsign for some can be very accurate, but Rinpoche did caution that the result of such prediction should not be taken as ‘fixed’ or permanent, as nothing is permanent. Each personality sign has mitigating factors and everything can be overriden with patience, kindness, understanding and good old fashion sincerity for others. Nevertheless, just take it with a pinch of salt for fun and easy reading and enjoy it as entertainment.

  31. wei theng on Jul 17, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    以前,以为相信风水命运,就能让知己顺顺利利的过好我的人生。但自从接触了佛法了以后,相信所有的事情的发生都是因为因果,所以认为只要种好因就会有好果。其实,我们也只是凡人,我们看到的不一定就是对的,因为我们还没有拥有足够的智慧去判断是与非,所以在此谢谢仁波切对于个个生肖做出了分析,让我们更加正确的了解自己的优缺点,看哪方面是需要加强或是改进,这样一来,我们就能成为更好的人了,谢谢仁波切。

    I’m a Tiger and according to the chinese Horoscope:

    “Tiger is the animal that represents authority. They are proud and will exert their leadership as they are born leaders. Forceful and aggressive, they are usually in the lead and it is difficult to deny them their rights. ”

    This is so true! I am very aggressive. hehe. The whole page is so fun to play with. I can find out more about other chinese horoscopes with just a few clicks!

    This part of the blog is only available because of the hard work of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and the E-Division Team. It is extremely fun to see how the Zodiac influences my personality. Although some of the points are inaccurate (Probably because I, myself, am quite an irregular person), most of the points are quite true to me.

    There is so much hard work at play here and I must congratulate those involved as those involved in the creation of this section has created the causes to satisfy people’s thirst for information and superstition. I rejoice! A lot of merit is gained by this action.

  48. Lucas Roth on Apr 27, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    I wanna know compatibility with my lover by combining both the chinese and western zodiac signs together. I am a leo sheep and he is libra rabbit.
    I know leo and libra is good.
    Sheep and rabbit is also good.
    But I wanna know the combined one. Can you please help me

  59. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 19, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    I think that a Buddha probably transcends all kinds of zodiac signs and is not limited by the limitations of each animal. Still 5000 years of observations there is some truths to , may not be absolute but there are many parallels that makes sense to the ordinary person.

  60. JM on Jul 12, 2014 at 5:45 am

    Can someone please help me determine which Chinese zodiac animal hour I was born in?
    I was born at 7:30pm Central Time on the 29th of July. I have been told that I was born in the Dog hour, but I have also been told I was born in the Rooster hour. I’m not sure which is correct.

  61. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Aug 7, 2014 at 4:44 pm

    Thank you for the team ‘s effort to sorting out the combination. i use to love to read some information on chinese Zodiac. here even tell us our protector . quite interesting !

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for your extensive works for living beings. Beautiful.

    I’ve just completed notes from an oral commentary on Samayavajra I received from the attendant to the late Trijang Dorjechang, Gelong Losang Choepel, and searching images found a link to your Samayavajra Puja page where you offer to perform various pujas for others.

    I’ve completed this preliminary many times, practice it daily within Lama Chopa, and was surprised and curious to see your mention of it as it is generally not talked about much…hence my request and receiving the commentary from Gen-la.

    I see mention on your page of a small and medium sized puja. Does this mean you have short and long sadhanas of Samayavajra, or is this referring to the length of the puja performed for others? Having a special connection, I am interested in any information or other sadhanas about this Guru-Deity. I use the sadhana included in Guide to Dakini Land, with slight augmentation based on Gen-la’s commentary.

    Thanks again.

    Yours,
    james

    The secret of a Master. ….. There was a silence. Then he said in a soft, almost shy voice, “You see, I don’t mind what happens”.

    I don’t mind what happens. That is the essence of inner freedom. It is a timeless spiritual truth: release attachment to outcomes, and deep inside oneself – one will feel good no matter what. One will feel good because one is connected to, one with, the energy of the universe, the beauty and power of creation itself.

    Or as the Master put it: “‘When you live with this awareness, this sensitivity, life has an astonishing way of taking care of you. Then there is no problem of security, of what people say or do not say, and that is the beauty of life.’

    Where we live it is as if through our understanding of indigenous voice
    and vision and the nasty way the english stole the country away from the indigenous ones that time is near where we can ask everyone to not visit here and let this island repair itself

    Since Rinpoche began speaking about the Dorje Shugden practice in public, there have been detractors and critics who have directed insults, vulgarities and violent remarks towards Rinpoche.

    Encouragingly however, there have also been many positive comments and messages of support for Rinpoche. We, as Rinpoche’s students, have collected them here, to give encouragement and inspiration to everyone who continues to receive verbal and physical abuse for their practice and beliefs. We rejoice in people’s ability to look at the facts and evidence, and decide for themselves if Dorje Shugden is good or not.

    Some may ask why His Holiness did not reveal his practice during his tenure as the Gaden Tripa. In fact, His Holiness had all along not been happy with the Dorje Shugden ban but did not speak against it. Realising the preciousness of his position, he refused to act in a manner that would stain the reputation of the office he held. Thus he waited until he became an ‘ordinary’ monk again, before making his practice known so that any attacks would be personal to him, and not to the position. Actions like these make it clear to us that His Holiness is without ego, valuing Dharma above politics, and it is clear this attitude has influenced his most loyal and closest students.

    “You are a Geshe and you know Dharma, you understand Dharma, and you should not be attached. Therefore, you have died and you have turned into a being here that is unhappy and causing suffering to others. I would like to release you from this and have you enter the entourage of Dorje Shugden to become one of the ministers and assistants because you are quite powerful, and you are quite learned, and you could be of assistance to the Buddhadharma and the growth of the Buddhadharma. Would you like to do that?”

    For Ming HY –

    Dear Ming,

    Thank you so much for your kind message!

    It is very true that people are using the Dorje Shugden practise as a platform to get back at Rinpoche because they do not have anything substantial that proof their hate speech towards Rinpoche and Kechara.

    A dharma centre is open for people from all walks of life, people come, people go; some stay and improve, some improved and leave, some stay and do not change, of course some leave without change also. Obviously, it is solely the choice that individuals had made. The question is why make a choice and then put the blame onto people in the dharma centre?

    In our case, people who have left did have good merits and karma to be in Rinpoche’s mandala doing something meaningful and beneficial in their lives, and whatever time, efforts they have put in within that period of time did not gone into waste, many are benefited because of them. Isn’t it better to think about all the good things one has done than to give in to the negative thoughts that one has?

    Negative thoughts can arise from anger, jealousy, bitterness etc. due to one refusing to see one’s flaws. When they refuse to see within, they started to blame externally, and conveniently to those who had kindly pointed that out to them. The extreme cases are those that you’ve mentioned.

    We will continue to protect Rinpoche and His precious works and take all necessary actions to do so. On the other hand, we appreciate people, especially those who had been benefited by Rinpoche, to please come forward to show your support by leaving comment here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-want-to-kill-me.html, share your kind thoughts about Rinpoche and Kechara, so that more and more people are aware of how selfless, kind and compassionate Rinpoche is.

    Again, I thank you for your kind comment and please share more with us if you can.

    With much appreciation,
    Pastor Adeline

    Before I pass away, I wish to get as many teachings, practices, meditations and rites on Dorje Shugden out as much as possible to the world. Dorje Shugden has many beneficial practices that are varied but with one goal (removing obstacles and enlightenment) to suit the various karmic inclinations of sentient beings. Bringing Dorje Shugden to many in order to relieve some of their suffering has been a passion of mine for decades. It’s just in the past we are ‘not allowed’ to speak about it. But you know what? As you get older, you fear less, worry less and give much less credence to ‘authorities’ and scorn from others who don’t like what you are doing. My motivation for this is good and I will do it. My heart tells me to do this and I will share my knowledge about Dorje Shugden to many who are karmically ready for Him. I do this with all humility, care and sincerity to benefit others. When I see others in problems it really moves me to do something. I am ordinary and I can’t do much. But Dorje Shugden is Manjushri in the form of a helpful guardian angel and protector and not ordinary. If we put our heart, practice and sincerity into Him, He will help us. If I can bring Dorje Shugden to many, then this is my legacy. The many other incredible teachings by Buddha and Tsongkapa many other great lamas are bringing to the world. They are doing a great job and I pay homage to them, but I will bring Dorje Shugden. I don’t do this for any political reasons, financial gains or prestige but simply it will benefit others and that is what I live for. I’ve always committed myself to Dorje Shugden for only spiritual reasons the day my Teacher assigned Him to me 30 years back. It is for spiritual reasons I keep Him close to me and introduce to you all. May you be benefitted always. ~Tsem Rinpoche.

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.

This person in the picture with me is a very humble, kind and knowledgable senior monk. I have the great merits to be considered his friend. He has been very kind to me on many occasions. I have the deepest respects for him and he has been serving others for nearly 40 years as the personal authorized oracle of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Setrap, Shidak Gyenze. He was trained up as a monk oracle by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He is fully qualified and benefits many with his oracular abilities. You can see him here in full trance in the monastery with hundreds of monks and people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xbghs-mdNc I thank Dorje Shugden for appearing in oracles to speak to us and I thank this oracle monk for his services.

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

    They pump 'things' into poultry to make it look plump and bigger to attract you to buy. Then you eat whatever they've pumped and think how it builds up in your body? Is your taste buds worth it to risk your health? Tsem Rinpoche

    Look at this 2 minute video, while Hong Kong is having massive protests,right over the skyline of a city a UFO is spotted observing.. Incredible footage. UFO's are historically said to always gather where there is massive conflicts or congregations of people for hundreds of years.

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    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

    The appreciation shown here is so deep and touching.
    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
