Identifying the scheme using the name zodiac has contributed to the improved popularity. The term `zodiac` reflects quite a number of similarities to the western zodiac. Both `zodiacs` have some time cycles that are divided into 12 parts. Both of them have labeled most of the parts with the names of various animals. They are also associated with the culture of the ascribing person`s personality. Also his events could also count in the formulation of these parts. However, the two have some major differences. The Chinese 12 parts correspond to years instead of months. The Chinese Zodiac is usually represented by animals, but the western zodiac does not have animals representing all the parts. In addition, the animals in the Chinese zodiac arent usually linked with constellations which are spanned by the ecliptic plane.
In the Chinese astrology we have the animal signs being assigned to the years basically represent what others are always seeing about you. It basically represents the perception that others have. It is usually a misconception when people say that the assigning of the animals in the given years was done with accordance to the western zodiac. In fact, there are animals that are fixed in the months that represent various signs in the zodiac. Though people might seem to be dragons just because they were born in months of dragons, they could be snakes inside though they were not born in months assigned for snakes and could be goats secretly.
You should also understand that within the outlined for pillars, the pillar usually represent the information regarding the background and the personal relationship of an individual. Also, you can easily determine the age of an individual by simply reading their signs e.g. in 2010, a person who was a Tiger could be aged around 12, 24, 36 or 48 years. In 2011 the year was of the Rabbit and the individual could be one year older. The twelve animals are usually linked directly to the Chinese agricultural calendar where it runs the lunar calendar. Instead of division by months, this calendar is subdivided into 24 weeks. These divisions are known as solar terms. Every animal is linked to those solar terms for a period that is similar to the Western month. The agricultural calendar usually varies according to the Western calendar.
Since every sign has been linked to a certain month in the solar year, every sign is usually linked to a season. Every element is hence linked to a certain season and all the elements that share the season are usually linked to a given season. The Chinese zodiac is also used in the labeling of some times of the day. The labeling is done in a way that every label is linked to to a certain ``large hour``.
