View Full Version : Chinese animal signs
anyone into Chinese animal signs? I am a Rooster, were are naturally courageous, but can be a bit of a nag......are any of you guys similar to your animal sign in characteristics?
I'm the rat. mwhahhahahhahahahhahah
I forget what the rats characteristics are but I think its the first animal, and its one of the best. I belive whatever I read on it mostly had something to do with me. I'm also a Scorpio. mwhahhahahhahahahahh
Im not into horoscopes....but your tight the rat is first.
He was supposed to have proven himself smarter than the rest.
I'm a wooden tiger

Whoohoo! Tigers represent'n!!
I'm the Dragon, and my element is Fire. It's funny. If you look these up, they're actually pretty descriptive of me. I know it's not the same for everyone though. :D
Lets start our own internet gang YuSanHapki!:D What element are you?
Keep in mind folks when looking up the Chinese zodiac...it goes by the Chinese New Year, not the western one. Most sites base the animal off of the western new year...
For instance, I was born January 14th, 1975...but I'm a wood-tiger because it was still 74 in the Chinese year.
I dont know what element Iam....never looked into it.
"If you look these up, they're actually pretty descriptive of me"
Well Im supposed to get off on the wrong foot with people...must be their fault cause it sure as hell cant be me...
According to the Chinese zodiac, my wife and I are supposed to hate each other. :laugh:
I believe my element is water if I remember right, mwhahhahahahhahahahah water puts fire out
Not if the fire is to large or intense for the water.
Water "could" put out fire.
Fire..if used properly can turn water into gas.
I was just having fun with it. Anyways I forget but I'm pretty sure you only get characteristics that each element have if you believe in the horoscope stuff so its not like I'm fighting with water against fire. Even though I would probably win. :P lol
Im not into superstition or horoscopes, tarot cards, palm reading or any of that.
I think peoples characters are too broad not to fit any horoscope sign.
Oh Jeff you are such a killjoy!!:D
so come on which animal are you?....never mind I just checked out your profile...you are the same as me...that figures:D
Ram / goat...I thought I had put it...but I didnt.
I just put a goat character trait.
Im also and Aries...so Im a Ram...no way around it I guess.
:confused: so is your birthdate wrong in your profile....to be a sheep/goat you would need to have a date between Feb 9th 1967 and Jan29 1968?
I have a mate who is a fire sheep and also aries in western astrology.........hot headed or what....:D
You know something Mandeigh...that is not my birthday in my profile...its April 8th 1967.
How did that happen?....I think I know my own birthday.
I just went to go change it...and in my usercp...the date was right...but on my profile its wrong.
:D now I get it....lying about your age, trying to be younger than you are......and I thought it was just us girlies who did that:up:
then you are indeed a fire sheep..... scarry! Sheep are very moody and sensitive, but also soft hearted, highly artistic and compassionate in nature.
aries-sheep..... this particular sheep stands out form the flock. Notably independent and headstrong, they still need the security of their loved ones and collegues, but are prepared to stand alone in the pursuit of a particular goal. They hate to back down. Aries sheep are more prepared to take risks in business and personal situations but they can bare grudges when they feel undermined. Even so they prefer to use charm to achieve their aims.......
Ill tell Fightgrrl about this post...seeing as she is the only one here who knows me....but that is alot of me.
I had a friend who's girlfriend was into all that stuff...I was like a fire sign with all kinds of other fire in my sign.
Well it must be a sign....
Im officially recognizing myself as 33 instead of 36...cool gives me more years to compete.
I am aiming to be 28 for ever....
I'm a wooden tiger/capricorn. A while back I picked up a small booklet that talked about wooden tigers...really odd stuff. It was like reading my life.
Well I am cancer - earth rooster...described as an archetypal 'headless chicken'.....hhhmmmm....yup thats pretty accurate...
The best use for this stuff is parties and meeting people.
Of course it could work against you...take me...a ultra fire sign.
Girl "hi whats your sign"
Me "FIRE...IS THAT A PROBLEM !!!???!!!"
quick call 999.........theres a Burger on fire...does that make you a flame grilled whopper........
because capricorn brings a deep need for worldly status and security to the otherwise devil may care Tiger temperament, this combination produces a more ponderous and calculating tiger than most. The dignified but predatory nature of all the cat family emerges when capricorn tigers seek to improve life for themselves and their family through rutheless hard work. Capricorn tigers are constantly seeking a new angle to exploit. The drawback is that their moody obsessiveness, if not controlled, can lead to periodic depression. Even when this happens, however, the capricorn tiger will always bounce back (like Tiggr I guess :) ) with some new scheme in mind.....
*chuckle* Yep...that about says it all :D
A hamburger crack...hey Ive never heard one of those before...lol
"does that make you a flame grilled whopper"
Im pressure cooked from the inside out....its not an internal arts....its just stress.
All this Chinese animal stuff reminds me of a bad joke...
Sign at Chinese pet store...
Buy 1 dog...get 1 flea
the appraisal of Jeff is so right on its scary..aries/sheep fire/ fire...twice the ram and twice the fire...lookout! I could write you a book on how accurate it is...
Soft hearted is on too...5 year old girls can pretty much have their way with him...I have given him a SPECIAL curse...May you only be blessed with female children...he'd be helpless with a daughter!!
He should have been a lawyer...wants to fight, won't back down, prefers wits and charm, but won't stop there if necessary...a real head butting warrior.
For the record i am a wood-dragon
"he'd be helpless with a daughter!!"
No...Id be an alcoholic.
"Soft hearted is on too...5 year old girls can pretty much have their way with him..."
Come on...how can you really be tuff with a little girl?
I give them "the look" "the talk"...they just see through it.
I have to say...its easier being tuff on the boys.
"wants to fight, won't back down, prefers wits and charm, but won't stop there if necessary...a real head butting warrior. "
Fightgrrl's nic for me when Im "ON" is Jeff Justice.
"He should have been a lawyer"
No...Id be broke...defending people for some Jeff Justice cause.
I should be The Punisher (comic book character).
Earth Rooster - Taurus here. Odd combo, can't pass a mirror without looking to reassure how unattractive I am! :D
A steadier and less adaptable Rooster than most. Taurus Roosters prefer to rule the barnyard from the comfort of their favourite chair. Their lives are invariably well organised and efficient down to the smallest detail: a trait which others find may find too ridgid. This is not to suggest that these Roosters lack the initiative to be active. Far from it. They just plan everyuthing ahead. Infact, Taurus Roosters are extremely preoccupied with how other percieve them and will take great pains to earn sufficient money to impress others with their stylish clothing and abundant lifestyle. In love the Taurus Rooster is loyal and ebullient, if a little possesive!!
Mandeigh the mystic who's realistic
Hey Mandeigh if its not too much trouble could you tell me what a Rat that is Scorpio with the water element is?
My birthday is Nov. 4, 1984 I'm not sure about the element though I could be wrong but I thought I had a water element
Their lives are invariably well organised and efficient down to the smallest detail
Bwahahaha.... Obviously don't know me well! Organised I couldn't organise the proverbial in the proverbial!
Interesting thread you have going here....
My birthday is November 11, 1965..........Scorpio - Snake...
So what does that mean in all this?? :D
I'm an earth horse (supposedly the earth element helps to keep me grounded), and in western zodiac I'm a Libra; from what I remember, they have similar qualities. :)
I just went to a Chinese Astrology site..put month, day, year...it wasnt close at all.
Id even have to stretch the generalizations.
Mandiegh's was close though.
Travis honey...are you sure you want to hear this? ok you twisted my arm...
Rat-Scorpio.....a particularly intense type of rat born under the tempestuous and sexy sign of scorpio. Fervent attractions to the opposite sex inevitably result in powerful romantic involvements, where jealousy and possessiveness should be avoided. The rats tendency to dart in all directions at once is exaggerated in scorpio, with the result that others find it hard to know where they stand. Business as well as personal involvements are likely to develop a clandestine edge, implying that this rat likes to work alone or in-the role of leader. Even so , great sensitivity is indicated and as long as self obsession can be held at bay, the scorpio rat displays genuine compassion.....
All snakes have a clandestine and conniving side to their natures, but scorpio snakes embody these scheming characteristics the most. This makes them relentlessly competitive - they hate to lose even in situations that others may not see as competitive. Scorpio snakes will go to great convoluted lengths both to win and to minimise any chance of opposition. That's their great problem: they should try to simplify their view of life and learn to relax. Scorpio snakes are fun loving, compassionate and so sexual that no one should be surprised of they leave a trail of broken hearts behind them. Whatever they do , scorpio snakes are determined to perform with distinctive flair.
That was weirdly accurate Mandeigh...thanks for the insight.
I'm going to ponder these findings a little more... :D
no probs...hey do ya think I could get ajob on one of those psychic telephone line things? :laugh:
Hi! Miss Cleo here, at yo service! How may I con you, I'mean help you? ;)
Thanks Mandeigh for the post. I haven't been on in awhile but I don't know if that post gives a good description of me. I don't know about the passionate part but I don't think I'm a jealous person.
"The rats tendency to dart in all directions at once is exaggerated in scorpio, with the result that others find it hard to know where they stand"
If that has something to do with not knowing where I stand in life than thats true. I don't know exactly what I want to do in my life and stuff like that.
Usually the horoscope stuff describes me pretty well but I've never had one with a combined rat and scorpio just separate.
Mandeigh, where do you get the breakdown for this? Is it a website or a book? Pray tell...
Mandeigh, where do you get the breakdown for this? Is it a website or a book? from my mystic understanding of the complex nature of the infinite of course!:D actually its from a book I got a couple of years ago..I will look out the name for you but it is currently in a large pile of stuff that an even larger spider crawled into last night, so I will have to wait until my other half gets home to retrieve it.........
Spider? There's no really poisonous spiders in Scotland anyway! Stop being a girl... oh, hang on you can't can you :D
Hey I never said it was poisonus...but it was huge..........at least a cm and black and if I had looked close it would probably have had hairy legs and big teeth too........:dead:
But anyway, the book title was.... ? :)
(I've got bigger teeth and hairier legs than any spider I've seen)
I delved into the spider pile especially for you!
The book is called the complete book of Chinese Horoscopes...a unique guide to individual readings combined with western zodiac signs, by Chris Marshall isbn 0-09-180877-4
Can't find the book on a Yahoo search... Oh wait, I found it by searching his name and zodiac. I'm interested in this as I recently designed a new tattoo 10.5" diameter that will go on my back combining both Western and Chinese Zodiacs as well as the Pakua.
Honest it was peer pressure...
Not into the hoo-hah of astrology, but apparently for whatever it means, I am a Wooden Dragon.
Haha...that's me...Big and scary looking, but not that tough. I am sure the philisophical implications are overwhelming... :D
i'm a tiger, but it beats me what my element is. i act like a tiger too; i just like to be alone most of the time. whenever i'm sparring with someone, i like to think of a tiger roaring whenever i throw a punch or a kick.
I'm a snake? How'd that happen? In "regular" astrology I'm a gemini (split personality, ok that's right) which is an air sign (no comment). But oddly enough I do have most of the characteristics of my Chinese Zodiac sign.
Well I'm a rat.
Where can you find out your element?
I'm a libra.
Cool logic rules my life apparently.
i'm a gemini/ tiger and i think my element is fire...
Well I'm a rat.
Where can you find out your element?
I'm a libra.

Here's a fun one... http://www.chinesefortunecalendar.com/Default.htm
Metal Dog, Libra here........... :)
I'm a Dog of Water with a Leo twist at the end. ;-d Means I'm fiercely loyal, but somehow am both indecisive AND and good leader. Hmm...
Anyway...the story goes something like this from what I heard of it. Basically one day Buddha visited the animals, and told them all that he had a special treat for them. He was going to hold a large party with a feast on the next day, and that they were all invited. The animals were all happy about an invitation from the Buddha, but Buddha looked around, and noticed the cat wasn't there. He told the mouse to make sure to let the cat know about the party the next day, and the mouse agreed.
Now, basically the mouse was a bit of a trickster, and when it went to tell the cat about the party, the mouse said it was the day AFTER tommorow. The cat thanked the mouse, and the mouse went on his way. The next day, all the animals showed up to the party, except the cat, who spent the day sleeping, and dreaming of all of the wonderful things he was going to eat the next day at the party.
During the party, Buddha told the animals that he wanted to hold a race, so all of the animals lined up to race. Now the mouse knew that it couldn't win a race against all of the larger animals, so it ran up the ox's leg, and on top of it's head without it noticing. The race started, and the ox made it towards the lead, getting only a few inches to the finish line before the mouse jumped off of his head, winning the race. The Buddha then told the animals that he was going to make them into the 12 zodiacs, and the order they appear in was the same order that they won in the race.
From then on, the cat has hated the mouse because the mouse tricked him. That's about it I think....or at least the jist of it. I originally heard the story on an anime called Fruits Basket, which is about the zodiac...so I thought it was fake, but I had a japanese friend tell me half the story once, and I finished it for him, and have since heard other people say it was a real story. Or...real in the sense that it wasn't just made up for that anime. Anyway...that's about it. Occasionally I run into something I actually know.
Ox reporting for duty, no idea of the element.
and Nicholas, since when do we fuse chinese and western signs ?
Cool story about the mouse by the way - isnt it a Rat though ?
cool i'm a red monkey. borm on the 6. february 66 .
You are Red Dragon, born in the year of Brown Chicken. The first character in DAY represents you. So you are equivalent to Fire. Lucky Element: Metal.
I'm an Aries/Ram (April 11, 1969), so I guess it all jives together.
You are White Monkey, born in the year of Red Sheep. The upper character in DAY column represents the person. So you are equivalent to Male Metal. The symbols in the upper row of birth chart are called Heavenly Stems. The animals in the lower row in are called Earthly Branches.
I don't know what this means :laugh:. I am also a Virgo.
I'm a Cancer/Dog. Element is water, I believe.
I was born a Pig but the only place I've read Pig's characteristics is on the menu of our fav Chinese restaurant and it is all light and airy and no hard stuff.
Pigs and karate - that's actually funny...most (domestic) pigs will turn aside from any barrier rather than try to smash thru it. I teach that the essence of karate is that it is the art of smashing thru!

Metal Rooster here
I am a tiger with the essence of fire. Interesting though, just how accurate the tiger's traits mirror my own.
