2. Are Chinese zodiac signs different to western zodiac signs?

Show answer


Yes, Chinese zodiac signs are indeed different from Western zodiac signs. While both systems share a common interest in ascribing personality traits and future prospects based on celestial influences, the systems' structures, symbols, and calculation methods differ significantly.

The Western zodiac system is based on the solar calendar and is divided into twelve equal parts, each associated with a constellation. These twelve signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces) are determined by the position of the Sun at the time of birth, and change monthly.

On the other hand, the Chinese zodiac operates on a lunar calendar and follows a 12-year cycle rather than a 12-month one. It features twelve animals (Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig) that represent a year in the cycle, and your Chinese zodiac sign is determined by your birth year.

Furthermore, Chinese astrology incorporates elements of yin and yang, the five elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water), and other complex relationships, making it markedly different from its Western counterpart.

So, while they might share a common goal of decoding the universe's influence on individuals, the Chinese and Western zodiac systems are distinct in their methods, symbolism, and cultural contexts.

The Chinese zodiac signs are, in this order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep/ Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

Each Chinese year sign has characteristics based on the animal represented. A brief description is below.

3. What is the cusp? Born on the cusp? Meaning of cusps.

Show answer


In astrology, 'cusp' refers to the imaginary boundary between two zodiac signs. If you are born on the cusp, it means your birthday falls on the day when the sun leaves one zodiac sign and enters another. For instance, if your birthday is around August 22, you might be born on the cusp of Leo and Virgo, as the sun transitions between these two signs around this date. The days before and after the sun leaves one sun sign and has yet to enter another star sign are known as Cusp days. It is auspicious time to be born though, many of the strengths of both signs are bestowed upon you.

Being born on the cusp can have interesting implications for your astrological profile. Some astrologers believe that cusp individuals possess traits of both zodiac signs, leading to a unique blend of characteristics. For example, a person born on the cusp of Aries and Taurus might exhibit the assertiveness of an Aries and the practicality of a Taurus.

The concept of being born on the cusp is a topic of debate among astrologers. Some insist that you belong to the sign the sun was in at your exact moment of birth, while others recognize the potential influence of the neighbouring sign.

In summary, the term 'cusp' in astrology refers to the border between two zodiac signs. If you're born on the cusp, it means your birth coincides with the sun's transition from one sign to another, possibly endowing you with a mix of traits from both signs.

Below is a listing of the different sun signs, their cusp dates, and the personality traits of those who are on the cusp.
