Zodiac signs april 2013

In Chinese astrology the animal signs assigned by year represent what others perceive you as being or how you present yourself. There are several folk stories that describe how the animals were assigned to the cycle of years.
On the day of the race 13 animals showed up: the Rat, Cat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Two of the animals, the Rat and the Cat, were best friends and traveled to the race together. The intelligent Rat looked at the Cat, then the Ox, and then a brilliant idea entered his mind, “I’ve got it! Unaware of the commotion on his back, the hard-working Ox paddled straight ahead and finally reached the shore. After the ox, came the tiger, panting, while explaining to the Emperor just how difficult it was to cross the river with the heavy currents pushing it downstream all the time. Not long after that, a little distance away, the ram, monkey and rooster came to the shore.
Just as the Emperor was about to call it a day, an oink and squeal was heard from a little pig. A moment later, the poor Cat arrived soaking wet in 13th place and found out he was too late to win a spot on the zodiac. In the end, the Jade Emperor was quite pleased with the results and gladly gave each of the 12 animals a year of its own, bestowing the nature and characteristics of each animal to those born in that year. Each person is a combination of the sign of the year they are born in as well as influences of the time of day and the larger cycles of the zodiac. The 3 animals which are evenly spaced from one another in the zodiac circle are generally considered to be good matches.


It is a common misconception that the animals assigned by year are the only signs, and many western descriptions of Chinese astrology draw solely on this system. One legend has it that sometime in the 6th century BC, the Jade Emperor decided to develop a calendar system based on the animals of the earth. Instantaneously, the aggressive Rat jumped off the back of the Ox and raced to cross the finish line first, while the serious, enduring Ox finished in second place. It explained how it crossed the river: by jumping from one stone to another in a nimble fashion.
Of course, the Emperor was deeply curious as to why a strong and flying creature such as the dragon should fail to reach first.
Hidden on the horse’s hoof is the snake, whose sudden appearance gave the horse a fright, thus making it fall back and gave the snake 6th spot while the horse took the 7th.
His explanation for being late—although he was supposed to be the best swimmer amongst the rest—was that he needed a good bath after a long spell, and the fresh water from the river was too big a temptation. The pig explained he got hungry during the race and then promptly stopped for a feast and then fell asleep. Since thirteen is considered an unlucky number, cats are to this day considered a bad omen. You may find that even though a person was born in a year that would seem to make you a poor match, the other influences that you share balance the ill effects of incompatible signs and make for a very good relationship — or cause problems in even the most compatible signs! In fact, there are also animal signs assigned by month (called inner animals) and hours of the day (called secret animals).
He decided the best way to determine those animals would be to hold a race across a river, assigning numbers in the order they finished. Shortly before beginning the race, the Cat turned to his best friend the Rat to express his deep concern.


At the onset of the event the Rat, the Cat, and the Ox were cruising slowly in the river, leaving all the competition behind. Halfway through, it almost lost the race but the rabbit was lucky enough to grab hold of a floating log that later washed him to shore. The mighty dragon explained that he had to stop and make rain to help all the people and creatures of the earth, and therefore he was held back a little. After the nap, the pig continued the race and was named the 12th and last animal of the zodiac cycle. Just as they reached the middle of the river, the rat became overwhelmed by a fierce competitiveness. Then, on his way to the finish line, he saw a little helpless rabbit clinging on to a log so he did a good deed and gave a puff of breath to the poor creature so that it could land on the shore.
Together, the ram and the monkey cleared the weeds, tugged and pulled and finally got the raft to the shore. The rat decided that in order to win, it must do something and so he sneaked up behind the unsuspecting Cat and pushed him off the back of the Ox into the river. The Emperor was very pleased with the actions of the dragon, and he was added into the zodiac cycle.
Because of their combined efforts, the Emperor was very pleased and promptly named the ram as the 8th creature, the monkey as the 9th, and the rooster the 10th.
All the animals chattered excitedly and all wanted to join the race to win their spot in the calendar.
