Relevance for The 2013 Chinese New Year of the Black Snake

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr. Craig @ 8:41 pm

Year of the Snake 2013

In the traditional Chinese calendar, February 10th’s New Holiday Moon begins a New Year. It is the Year of the Snake. To be precise, it is the Year of the Water Snake, so baby Snakes emerging in this year will be Snakes ruled by the element of Water. This kind of Snake is also called, ‘The Snake in the Grass’ or in Chinese ‘Kuei Szu’.

What can we expect from the Snake Year? Internationally the Year of the Snake is renowned for protest movements, civil unrest or wars that escalate out of nowhere. It is a time for national leaders to exercise delicate diplomacy and swift action as soon as a crisis arises. There are promising omens that some sectors will witness the beginning of a financial recovery, but in others and in some countries, the fiscal downturn will get far worse. However, it will be a great year for innovations in art, music, fashion and the media.

All Snake people are intelligent, funny, shrewd, fussy, moody, individualistic, intuitive, mystical and ambitious. A baby born this year will be a Water Snake, and as any naturalist knows, water snakes are by far the most deadly. Luckily, your little Water Snake will not be murderously lethal, but will possess killer charm, with the ability to influence and sway other people’s opinions and emotions. He or she will be gifted with charisma and a firm will to succeed: radiant talents that could propel them to success or leadership in their chosen field.

Water Snakes seek achievement in their career or business, and have the focus, concentration, will power, networking skills and pragmatism to find it. These Snakes will be attracted to the arts and enjoy indulging their passion for them, but will only choose a life path within an art that offers adequate material rewards. Young Snakes are popular and attractive to others. However, their talents can make other children jealous, so they can potentially be targeted by bullies. Fortunately, a Snake child will gather a circle of allies around them, and no matter how long it takes, efficiently get their own back. Water Snakes are among the most intelligent, creative and strong minded of all the Snakes. 

If you are a Snake then this is your year. It is not a time in which to get carried away or act rashly. You will make solid progress in many life spheres, but it will all seem to go forwards slower than you expect, and perhaps not be quite up to your expectations. Stay chilled, refuse to rush anything, and don’t make any grandiose changes. You will need to work hard and communicate diplomatically to keep the peace in a special friendship or love bond. Artistic and spiritual pursuits will offer hope, serenity and renewed purpose.

ASIAN soothsayers have predicted a stock market slide, escalated conflict, and more Gangnam-styled success for Psy in the Year of the Snake.

Those who make predictions according to the study of feng shui – or literally “wind-water” – are influential in many parts of Asia, where people adjust their lives or renovate houses and offices based on the advice.

As they bid farewell to the Year of the Dragon, the fortune tellers warn that the “black water snake” that emerges to replace it on February 10 – the first day of the Lunar New Year – could be a venomous one that brings disaster.

The 1929 stock market plunge that heralded the Great Depression also occurred in a snake year.

Hong Kong’s celebrity feng shui master Mak Ling-ling predicts the stock markets will enjoy a smooth first-half before becoming turbulent in the second half of the year, which she links to the characteristics of the reptile.

“It’s just like the movement of snakes – fast, aggressive and sharp, but cunning and tricky at the same time,” she tells AFP.

Mak warned that despite early market optimism there would be no full recovery in the crisis-hit eurozone, while the economy of the United States would not gather a strong pace until 2014.

She added that President Barack Obama needed to “be less conservative” in his attempts to revive the economy.

Astrologers say this year’s snake is identified with the element of water – symbolizing fear – that sits on top of the fire element, representing joy and optimism. They say conflict between the two will bring turbulence in May.

“This is a disaster year… a lot of things will not go smoothly,” said Singapore’s “Grand Master” Tan Khoon Yong of geomancy consultancy Way OnNet Group.

“The European Union may split, the euro may be in trouble,” the 59-year-old said, adding that the bloc would be threatened by division in May.

Hong Kong astrologer Chow Hon-ming said a disharmonious May would see an ongoing dispute between Japan and China possibly escalate into a “brief” war, as two “snakes” are going to clash according to his reading of the Chinese almanac.

“May is known as the ‘snake month’ and it’s the Year of the Snake so between May 5 and June 6, these two snakes will meet.

“This is why things will be very intense between Japan and China. Tensions will rise to a peak and they will possibly go to war.”

Chinese fortune telling is based on ancient philosophy and belief dating back thousands of years that events are dictated by the different balances in the five elements that make up the universe: metal, wood, water, fire and earth.

A person’s fortune can be calculated by using the exact time and date of his birth, with the relationship of each of the elements.

The lunar calendar is based on the cycles of the moon and associates each of the 12 years forming a rotating cycle with an animal – with the snake assuming the sixth position out of the 12 animal signs.

China’s new leader Xi Jinping and “Gangnam Style” singer Psy, two of the most famous people born in the Year of the Snake, will see success despite entering a year matching their Chinese zodiac, usually considered to be a bad thing.

 But China’s Xi, born in 1953, and 36-year-old South Korean pop sensation ‘Psy’ Park Jae-Sang will be spared, due to their favorable birth dates and elements.
While the 60-year-old Chinese leader is set to see a smooth leadership transition in March from predecessor President Hu Jintao, there may however be the odd bump in the road.

“He needs to watch out for his health. He might suffer a fall in November if he travels,” Chow said, recommending Xi avoids “Europe or Russia” that month.

CLSA, one of Asia’s leading brokerages, creates its own tongue-in-cheek annual “feng shui index”. This year it states that while stock markets will be volatile in the second-half, the presence of the market-driving “fire” element gave reason for optimism.

“We’ve got the fire element so we’re pretty hopeful,” CLSA analyst Mariana Kou said, predicting this year markets will have a “decent finish” this year.

Past Snake years give little encouragement, with the three most recent ones seeing Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index finish down, falling 33.5 percent in 2001.

“As befits “skin-shedders”, Snake years are marked by major transformation and change — and sometimes great upheaval,” CLSA said.

2013 is the year of the Black Water Snake. Because of lunar dating, the first day of the Chinese year can fall anywhere between late January and the mid-February. On the Western calendar, the 2013 Chinese New Year begins on Sunday, Feb.10 and ends Jan. 30, 2014.

The animals of Chinese astrology, like houses of the zodiac in Western astrology, dictate personality traits and predict world events for the year they rule. If you were born in 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, you were born in the Year of the Snake. Some of the most physically beautiful women and most powerful men are born under the sign of the Snake.

Snake and those born under compatible signs (Rooster and Ox) benefit from good fortune during a Snake year. In 2013, Snake shines both personally and professionally and can expect good fortune in relationships. Obstacles experienced in 2012 are easily overcome in 2013. Financially, Snake does best in the second half of the year.

2013 flows at a a much slower pace than 2012, the year of the Dragon. For all signs during a Snake year, inner growth, spirituality, and discovering the hidden meanings of things come to the forefront.

Animal sign forecasts for 2013

  • Chatty Rat: Secrets abound this year for Rat. As Rats often encounter financial snarls in Snake years, this not a good year to start a new business. Rat should keep assets out of sight or hidden to discourage envy and theft.
  • Sturdy Ox: The Ox and Snake are good friends, and so the slower pace of 2013 suits Ox. Family difficulties, the only bump in the road, may trigger the Ox temper. Be tolerant of those who do not share your opinion and values. Tricky legal matters could hurt you financially.
  • Terrific Tiger: Tiger may find this Snake year slow and boring at times. Extreme caution should be used to prevent a love affair from turning into a scandal. Tigers in the entertainment industry are favored in Snake years, especially female Tigers.
  • Reticent Rabbit/Cat: 2013 is an exceptional year for peace-loving Rabbit with business travel prominent. A career change improves finances. Domestic problems are few. This is a lucky year for speculation especially from Aug 2013 to Jan 2014.
  • Candid Dragon: Dragon finds Snake years mellow. Even though life’s pace slows down, Dragon’s world remains as unpredictable as ever, though they usually land on their feet. Outspoken Dragon should listen to all sides of an issue before passing judgment, and think before speaking.
  • Deep-thinking Snake: 2013 will be memorable, with high, highs and low, lows. Others find Snake’s physical beauty and wisdom intoxicating, and sensual Snake charms love interests as never before. “Love at first sight” not advised.
  • Outgoing Horse: Infatuations are many for Horse, as it is an exciting yet crazy year for love. Freedom loving Horse has to make decisions as new doors open. Horse will whinny with delight at developments in professional life.
  • Imaginative Goat: New challenges and travel for business are in the wind. Guard valuables and luggage while traveling. Financially, Goat rises to former status, but expenses may drain cash flow. Influential and social contacts figure strongly.
  • Mischievous Monkey: A Snake year stimulates Monkey’s quick-wit and sense of humor and others take notice. Should a hint of infidelity raise its ugly head, run don’t walk to the nearest exit. Physical exercise is a must.
  • Classy Rooster: Stylish Rooster is center stage in 2013. Marital or family difficulties may arise. If so, be tactful and avoid personal disagreements. A journey, move, or change in family structure could be the solution to job related matters.
  • Sharp-eyed Dog: Dog bounces back from a rough 2012. Pleasure and earthy sexuality replace pessimism and worry. Loyalty and skepticism figure prominently. Improving the fate others brings happiness. Love finds you when you least expect it.
  • Agreeable Pig: Shrewd marketing of a product or project change Pig’s financial future bringing success in career matters. Travel may be required. It is a romantically turbulent time, possibly involving deception. Character and honesty will be tested. April to July is not good for litigation. .

Gong Xi Fa Cai! “May your year be fortunate.”

The Lunar New Year dates from 2600 BC, when the Emperor Huang Ti introduced the first cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

Even though Snake may not have the income desired in the first half year, financial fortune comes in the second half year.

Snake Characteristics

Snakes don’t like to ask others for advice and some see them as cold and calculating – not so, they are just being careful.They need to plan every detail before embarking on an objective.

2013 Chinese Horoscopes for 12 Chinese Zodiac Signs In the Year of Snake

Chinese Zodiacs - Year of SnakeChinese said the dragon fell down from the sky and then became a snake. Therefore, the snake is also called a little dragon. Just like the dragon, the snake doesn’t like people seeing its body. So people think snake is sly, clam, quiet, lonely and humble animal. Snake attacks other animal only when it’s hungry. If we keep the distance from it, snake won’t hurt people. Snake has the ability to swallow an animal bigger than its size. So we cannot underestimate snake’s ambitious. Snake is a no-limb animal with fork-like tongue. Chinese treat that spitting tongue as a sign of argument. Actually, Snake uses its tongue to smell. But in the Chinese zodiac, the Snake implies the potential trouble of libel, dispute or slander, especially, when it meets Tiger or Monkey.

In Chinese Five Element theory, Snake is in the Fire group. But it also contains Earth and Metal. When it meets Chicken and Cow, then Snake brings up strong Metal’s characteristic. When it meets Horse and Sheep, then it will emphasize the Fire’s characteristic. 2013 is the year of Black Snake. Black is in the Water group of Five Elements (Meta, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth). Therefore we also can say 2013 is a Water Snake year. Snake is Fire and it’s under Water in 2013. The Fire of Snake in the Water shouldn’t bring up big trouble or big fortune to most of people. But Fire and Water will be the biggest factors to determine people’s fortune in 2013.  The following prediction for 2013 Snake year is based on your birth year, the Chinese zodiac signs.

2013 is Year of the Snake and it will arrive on February 4, 2013. (Note: Chinese New Year Day is on February 10, 2013. The first day of 2013 Chinese Astrology Year is on February 4, 2013.) Many people are eager to know if they will have better luck in the forthcoming year than previous years. Here, we want to use Chinese Astrology’s Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth) theory to explain people’s fortune in 2013 and foresee what will happen in their lives in the Water Snake year.

According to the Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2013 is the Year of Water Snake Female Water. The color of Water in Five Elements system is related to Black. Therefore we can say 2013 is a Black Snake, Water Snake or Black Water Snake year.

Chinese New Year SnakeChinese Astrology is a Balance Theory of Five Elements. Each animal can be converted into Five Elements. Snake contains mainly Fire. It also contains some Metal and Earth. Snake is in the Fire group. Water of 2013 and Fire of Snake are opposite elements. Therefore most of people will experience mix of good and bad fortune.

Water Snake is Fire under Water. Snake is a clam, shy, cautious and low-key animal in Chinese Horoscope. Snake won’t attack its opponent, unless it’s disturbed or hungry. If Fire is not your favorite element, then you should keep a distance from Fire in 2013. Otherwise, if you fool with Fire, then you may get burn.

Snake is the 6th animal in the Chinese horoscope order sequence. Six (6) is an even number, Chinese horoscope treats Snake is a Yin (female) animal. However, Snake contains Male Fire , Male Metal  and Male Earth . The outside of Snake looks soft, but the inside is tough. Male Metal in the Snake is very special. Metal’s mother element is Earth and Earth’s mother element is Fire. Snake is a birth place of Male Metal. Male Metal will become mature when the Autumn comes. If there are Chicken and Cow in the birth chart, then Male Metal will become very active during the Fall season. Since Fire and Metal are opposite elements, people’s fortune may start to change direction after Summer.

Snake is a no-limb animal with fork-like tongue. Although, Snake uses its tongue to smell, people don’t like the spitting tongue which is associated with mouth action, possibly argumentation. Therefore, the Snake has the potential to hurt people relationship, especially, when Tiger and Monkey are around.

2012 Year of Black Dragon was the last year of Wood cycle. 2013 Snake year is the beginning year of the Fire cycle (Snake, Horse and Sheep). If people’s lucky element is Wood, then their fortune will slow down. If the people’s lucky element is Fire, then their fortune will begin to take off. The energy of Wood is on the East side. The energy of Fire is on the South side. The Element’s Luck is turning from East (Wood) to South (Fire) in 2013.

Before predicting your luck in 2013, you have to know what Type of Element you are and what your Lucky Element is from your Astrology Birth Chart. The Lucky Element is the major factor to determine people’s fortune. 2013 is the Year of the Black Water Snake, which contains Fire, Metal and Earth. If your Lucky Element is Fire, Metal or Earth, then 2013 will bring you some degree of fortune. Since 2013 is Water Snake year, people whose lucky element is Water will obtain fortune in 2013. Fire is the opposite element of Water. People whose lucky element is Fire can get some benefits, however, will reach the limitation.

For more details and an accurate predictions, the first step to knowing your fortune is know which elements and animals are in your birth chart. You can find that information from theChinese Astrology Lucky Element page using your date and time of birth.

     Your Lucky Element     

The following is the example of the Chinese Astrology Birth Chart.

Chinese Horosocpe Birth Chart

The Birth Chart of June 15, 2008
Upper Row of Day Column (Day Master) represents the Person

Chinese Astrology Five Elements

Fire represents the person. This Birth Chart shows Fire-Type Person

This person was born on June 15, 2008. The symbol of the upper row of the Day Column (a.k.a. Day Master) represents the person. So we can say Day Master is Male Fire, which represents the person. The birth chart has too little Metal and needs more Metal to balance the Five Elements. Therefore, the Lucky Element is Metal.

2013 is Female Water Snake year. Snake contains mainly Fire. Horses  of Birth chart are in Fire Group. Snake will make Fire spreading wider on the ground. Female Water  of 2013 and Male Earth (Soil) Female Wood have attraction relationship into Fire. This relationship helps Fire burning toward the sky. 2013 becomes a very powerful Fire year to this person. What’s meaning of this?

If there are too much Fire in the Birth Chart, then Fire is the Unlucky Element. Fire is related to the siblings, friends or same generation relatives of the person. Metal is related to money. There is only a little bit money in the birth chart. Year of 2013 will have more people (Fire) coming to share the tiny amount of money. This implies the person have financial problem. Debt is expected. The trouble will come from siblings or friends. The summer is hot, which is Fire season. The money pressure will arrive during the summer.

     Fortune Basic – Lucky Element and Day Master Type     

2013 is the Black Water Snake year.

If your lucky element is Water and did well in 2012, then your luck will most likely continue during the year of the Snake. Snake contains Fire. People whose Fire score is low will receive benefits from Snake. Snake also contains some Earth. 2013 will bring some luck for people whose Lucky Element is Earth. Snake contains little Metal, too. Since Metal is afraid of Fire. People whose lucky element is Metal won’t gain too much advantage from Snake in 2013.

The following table shows people’s luck in 2013 based on their Luck Element.

Lucky Element How good is my luck in 2013?
  Metal It’s not too good. But there is a chance. Metal is the mother element of Water. So Water can weaken the Metal. Fire can melt down Metal. Metal is required courage and strength to fight Fire. In short Water and Fire make Metal weak. Luckily, Water can cool down the Fire. This will release some pressure off of Fire. Fundamentally, 2013 won’t bring significant luck for people whose lucky element is Metal. Luckily, Snake also contains Male Metal, Metal becomes active and strong in autumn. If Chicken is found in the birth chart or Major Cycle, then unexpected positive surprise may come in fall season.
  Water It is good. 2013 is a Water Snake year. Definitely, 2013 will be a good year for you. Fire in Snake is the opposite element of Water. Therefore, you will feel good luck coming, but it’s not enough. You will wish you had more fortune at the end of 2013. You have food to enjoy, but this is not all-you-can-eat.
  Wood It is fair. Water can help Wood (tree) growing. That means Wood can become strong with the support of Water. However, Wood is the mother element of Fire in Snake. Wood will burn itself for Fire. Wood receives energy from Water and gives away its energy to Fire. That implies the luck of 2013 comes and goes.
  Fire It is good. Fire is afraid of Water. If too much Water comes, then Fire has a chance to extinguish. Again, the Earth inside Snake can stop Water and protect Fire little bit. As long as Snake can survive in the Water. 2013 will bring some good fortune in. Note, there may be some challenges to overcome and achieve more luck.
 Earth It is good. Snake contains Fire and Earth. Fire is the mother element of Earth. So Earth receives the good support from Snake. But strong Water can wash away Earth. That means the opportunity is there. To gain more luck needs more Earth to fight with Water. If you have strong Earth in your birth chart, then you will have better opportunity in 2013. Also, you will have better luck between the change of four seasons, because Earth is stronger during that period.

The following table informs people’s what event may occur in 2013 based on their Day Master Element Type. Day Master is the upper row symbol in the Day Column of the Birth Chart.

Day Master Type What will happen in 2013?
  Metal Water of 2013 represents your outlook, performance, speech, behavior, freedom or expression. Therefore, it relates to your fame or reputation. Your social life makes you busier. You will have more opportunities to show your talent. If people accept your attitude, then you should earn a good reputation from them. If people don’t like your way, then people still talk about you, however, negatively. Certainly, taking care of such a busy life will consume your energy when you have many activities with people. Basically, if your Metal is strong, people will give you compliments about your behavior. If your Metal is weak, then Water of 2013 will make you tired. You will not receive too much support from people around you, even though you attempt to please them.Snake of 2013 mainly contains Fire. Metal is afraid of Fire. Therefore, Fire is related to your pressure, job, career, boss, teacher, police or law. If you are a career person, 2013 brings you more job responsibilities in your position. If you have high score of Metal, then this will be a good job opportunities for you. If you have more Fire than Metal in your birth chart, then you have to prepare to do overtime for your daily work.

If you are a woman, then Fire connects to your boyfriend, husband or love opportunity. Therefore, a single woman will have more chances to meet opposite sex. A married woman will care more her husband or her own career.

  Water Water of 2013 represents your siblings, relatives or same generation friends. You will spend most of your time with them in 2013. If the Water score is low in your birth chart, then your sibling or friend will provide you good advice whenever you need. If you own a company, your friends or business partners will help your business growing. But, if the Water score is excessively high, then siblings or friends might bring you trouble. In most cases, the trouble will connect with money. You might have to spend some money on them.The major element of Snake is Fire. Water can overcome the Fire. Fire connects to money or property. That means the major event of 2013 is regarding money, investments and financial issues. Water of 2013 and Fire of Snake are opposite elements. No matter how high the score of Water is or how low in your birth chart, your money luck won’t be consistent in 2013. Depending on your circumstances, if you first have strong money income, then you might spend it later. On the flipside, if you have money loss first, then you will recover some of it later in the year of 2013.
  Wood Water of 2013 is the mother element of Wood. Water represents parents, mentors, elders, protection, teachers, knowledge, education, medicine or health.Therefore, You may spend more time to watch your health. You will often contact people who care about you. You will expend time acquiring knowledge from teachers, mentors or elders. They will provide you good advice, support and reputation.

If Water is your Lucky Element, then this will help your career development or money investments. But if Water is your Unlucky Element, then either they cannot provide you good recommendations or you wouldn’t accept their opinions. This may result in unwise decision-making and you may lose your career, money and potential opportunities.

Fire of Snake is the Child Element of Wood. Fire relates to how your behavior, expression, and performance are projected to people. Your social life will be more active. Wood will give away its energy to Fire. Fire will make Wood weak. Water of 2013 is the mother element of Wood. That means you receive energy from Water, which you then pass onto Fire. This gives us the following hints.

You acquire the knowledge from teachers, then you teach new knowledge to someone else.  You receive supports from people, but they leave you later. Your gain better health from medical care, but you might lose your health again. Or the result of the event is the other way around. Something bad may occur first and then you can have a happy conclusion.

  Fire Water of 2013 can extinguish the Fire. Because of this, Water brings pressure to Fire. Therefore, Water relates to your job, career, supervisor, police or law. This is not a good sign for career and health unless you have very strong Fire in the birth chart.Fire of Snake relates to your friends, coworker, same generation of relatives. If the score of Fire is your birth chart is low, then 2013 will have many friends around waiting to help you whenever you encounter the pressure or trouble. If the score of Fire is your birth chart is high, then your friends or relatives might bring in trouble regarding money, career or law.

Water of 2013 and Fire of Snake are opposite elements. Your career luck in 2013 will be up and down. You might feel pressure at the beginning of the year. Then you receive the help from coworkers or friends during mid-year. You could encounter frustration again when your helpers or supporters are not around.

One way to eliminate the pressure from Water is to ask the help from Wood. Wood can take away the energy in Water and pass it over to Fire.

 Earth Water of 2013 represents money or wealth to Earth. Therefore the major event in 2013 will be money related. If you have strong Earth in your birth chart, then you will have better money opportunity. Your income, investments and wealth will be increase. But if you have a weak Earth in the birth chart, then you will feel money pressure soon or later.Fire in Snake is the mother element of Earth. Fire will bring the support or protection to you. You can expect to make contact to parents, mentors, teachers or elders. If you experience financial troubles, then people who care and love you will be there to help you. Or the other way around is you have to provide financial support to parents, relatives or elders you love.

The money luck of 2013 is in and out. Unless you are pretty sure about your financial plan, otherwise, any risky investments are inadvisable.

 Five Elements and Animal Relationships     

2013 is Male Water Snake year . If your birth chart contains Male Earth , then your social relationship with people will be good. If Male Earth is your Day Master (upper low of the Day Column in the birth chart) and you are a female, then it’s possible that a love relationship, engagement or marriage will come to fruition for you in 2013.

Female Metal  and Male Earth  have a Stem Attraction Relationship into Fire. Snake also contains Fire, therefore, if Fire is your lucky element and you have Male Earth  in your birth chart, then 2013 will be a peaceful and wonderful year to you.

Monkey  and Snake  have a Branch Attraction Relationship into Water. If Monkey  is in your birth chart, then your people relationship will be good. If the Monkey is in the Day Column of the birth chart, then the love opportunity will appear for people seeking love, and the love relationship will be deeper for people in love. If you also were born in the year of Dog , then that’s a sign of marriage or engagement relationship.

Monkey and Snake have attraction relationship. On the other hand, Monkey  and Snake  also have Branch Hurting Relationship. The actual relationship is mixing love and hate. Tiger  and Snake  have Branch Hurting Relationship, too. If both Monkey and Tiger appear in the birth chart or current 10-year Major Cycle, then the love relationship of Monkey and Snake will be taken away; the person will have very poor people or relative relationship in 2013.

Female Metal  and Female Fire  have a Fighting Relationship. Pig  and Snake  have a Fighting Relationship. Both of fighting relationships imply poor social relationship, which makes it hard for these people to find a close friend or love relationship.

If the Female Fire Pig  or Female Earth Pig Female Wood in the Year Column or Day Column of the birth chart, then this is the case of a Double Stem-Branch Fighting Relationship. This is a bad sign of instability, accident, separation, dispute, hostility and poor health. These type of people should use a conservative attitude and approach to avoid any dispute, quarrel and challenges in 2013.

Since the prediction of Chinese Zodiac is based on Chinese constellations, which are different from modern constellations, many positions of stars today have moved far away from Chinese ancient time’s positions. That means some predictions on some stars are losing accuracy. Around  Tang Dynasty (618 A.D.), Chinese astrology moved the center point of the sky to the Sun to develop new prediction system without using any distant stars. Since that time, the Chinese astrology prediction began to use the zodiac sign of people’s Birth DAY to represent the person. (Chinese use same Chinese character  for day and sun.) This chance made a breakthrough into a higher prediction accuracy. More than 2000 years later, today Chinese professional astrologers keep using the same theory to tell people’s fortune. We provide the same method for Internet users.
