Is your mate a Snake? Do Dogs make loyal friends? Each of the twelve Chinese Signs is represented by a particular animal; each Sign embodies its Animal's characteristics, as seen by Eastern eyes. Many Westerners find that certain Chinese Zodiacal Signs may seem like insulting choices on which to base one's character. The rat, for example, is commonly thought of in the West as a dirty, destructive scavenger, and the pig as filthy and slovenly. In Eastern cultures, however, both animals are greatly respected: The Rat for its ability to accrue items of value and the Pig for its superior intelligence and tenacity.
Just as each Sun Sign relates differently to the other Signs of the Zodiac, each pair of Chinese Signs interacts in its own special way. Choose two Signs below to find out whether they're compatible and why!
