What is Chinese Astrology ?
Chinese Astrology is an Ancient Astronomy based Chinese Traditional astrology which is from around the 2nd Century BC. Even though Chinese astrology is completely different in nature than Indian Vedic astrology or
Western Astrology, it is based on or inherited from the same concepts the other two mentioned astrology came from.

Jupiter travels a full circle to Sun in 12 years. Chinese astrology divided the destiny of a person into 12 Animals or Lunar signs.
