Year of Horse







Compatibility

Chinese Culture Index








Introduction


According to the Chinese Astrologists, the characteristics of an individual can be determined from the year, month, time and place of birth. The reality of such prediction is about 60% accurate since one can change ones character and attitude either for better or worse as the years go by. The environment and our determination can also affect those characteristics.

Sincere, kind and truthful attitudes are valuable for establishing good friendships whereas arrogance and flattering approaches are to be discouraged.

The following information could help you to know about your relationship as well as compatibility with other signs. More importantly, one should always realize personal shortfalls and learn from the positive attitudes of others.








Compatible Chart



Two most compatible signs for each animal sign:

Starting from your own sign, say, as number one, count either clockwise or anti-clockwise to 5 and these will be two compatible signs.

e.g. If you are a Rat sign, then two compatible signs are Dragon and Monkey.

Either competitor or compatible:

Directly opposite to each other.

e.g. Rat and Horse

Normally, these two signs cannot see eye to eye with each other (in this case as competitor), BUT if the elder sign yields to the younger sign, then the relationship will be compatible.


Possible non compatible combination:

Starting from your own sign, say, as number one, count either clockwise or anti-clockwise to 4 and these will be two very likely non-compatible signs.

e.g. If you are a Rat sign, then two non compatible signs are Rabbit and Rooster.

For a husband and wife, parent and children or brother and sister relationship that falls under such combination, there will be quite frequent disagreements. The possible reason for meeting in such circumstances in this life are partly due to destiny or previous unresolved deeds, depending on who is the debtor or debt-collector.

Anyhow, RESPECT for each other will lead to having a peaceful home.

For a friend, business partnership or colleagues relationship, such combinations could establish into a good friendship or friendly working environment provided one respects and values each other.


Other signs:

In general, when the large animal sign is willing to give in to the smaller animal sign, they can become good-friends or compatible.

Large animal signs:- Ox, Tiger, Dragon, Horse.

Small animal signs:- Rat, rabbit, snake, goat (sheep), monkey, rooster, dog and pig.


Remember, 'Respect others, and others will respect you', then non-compatibles can become compatible. Learn good attitudes from others in order to compensate own shortfalls.
