What are the Differences between Star Zodiac Signs and Chinese Zodiac Signs?

Chinese Zodiac SignsChinese Zodiac Signs

Star zodiac (sun zodiac or Western zodiac) signs and Chinese zodiac signs are both used to predict personality traits and life events based on an individual's birth date. However, there are some key differences between the two systems:

1. Sun zodiac signs are based on the position of the sun at the time of a person's birth month and date, while Chinese zodiac signs are based on a 12-year cycle of animals.

2. Zodiac signs follow the Gregorian calendar, while Chinese zodiac signs follow the Chinese lunar calendar (in popular Chinese astrology).

3. The 12 zodiac signs associated with Western astrology are according to constellations and their positions in the sky, while Chinese zodiac signs are based on the 12 animals chosen in ancient times to represent years in the cycle.

4. Sun zodiac signs are associated with four elements: fire, earth, air, water. Each zodiac sign is assigned one element, and three zodiac signs correspond to each of the four elements (e.g. fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius).

Contrastingly, Chinese zodiac signs can each be associate with one of five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, water. 12 animal sign may correspond with five elements in pairs, making a total of 60 animal and element combinations, and giving rise to a 60-year cycle.

Overall, while both systems are used to predict life events and personal characteristics based on one's birth, they operate on different principles and cultural contexts.

Who Created the Sun Zodiac Signs?

Sun zodiac signs were defined by Babylonians to predict the position of celestial bodies and the occurrence of events such as solar and lunar eclipses. The concept of sun zodiac signs, as we know them today, was developed in the early centuries of Babylonia (c. 1830–626 BC) by Babylonian astronomers, who divided the sky into 12 equal parts.

The ancient Greeks (c. 800 BC – 480 AD) assigned each zodiac sign a name inspired by Greek mythology, and added further meaning to the signs. This also had great influence on Hindu astrology (also known as Vedic astrology) and Arabic astrology.

Throughout the development of astrology, many famous scientists, such as Ptolemy, Kepler, Newton, and Descartes, showed great interest and contributed to its advancement.

Today, these sun zodiac signs and interpretations have been further refined and widely used in various forms of astrology, including fortune-telling and self-awareness.
