Chinese Astrology

The origin of Chinese Astrology is parallel to the creation of the Chinese lunar calendar, which occurred around 2637 B.C. and was attributed to Emperor Huangdi Yellow.

This date also coincides with the 60th anniversary of this emperor’s ascent to the throne.

Unlike Astrology as we know it in the West, Chinese Astrology can be defined as a method of divination similar to numerology.

In the West, Astrology (which means “study of the stars”) is based on the study of the position of the planets, their movements and conjunctions, drawing “letters” or “celestial snapshots” that try to explain human nature, the relationships between individuals or make predictions on any matter.

In its origin, Chinese Astrology also consisted of a complex system derived from the observation of the sky whose interpretation required techniques that could only be applied by the Court’s astrologers, so that for many centuries the astrological practice was reserved to the affairs of State, forbidding the people to know and use them.

However, the common people’s desire to access it led to the emergence, at the end of the first millennium B.C., of a parallel Astrology that did not violate the imperial prohibition to study the sky since it was not based on its observation but on the cycles and numbers of the lunar calendar, on the doctrine of duality and on the theory of the 5 elements.

That is to say, the substitution of the planetary movements by regular numerical cycles avoided the problems with power and allowed the people to practice a simpler Astrology.

The Chinese Astrology that we know popularly is based on a cyclical system, complex and very structured.

These cycles are expressed in tables and it is the combination of the elements of each table that configures the horoscope of an individual.

Since there are a multitude of tables, the possible combinations between the elements of each are very numerous.

This makes it possible for Chinese Astrology to define the personality of an individual quite precisely.
