I was thinking about this, and this is what it feels like the chinese signs really correspond to. Tell me what you think.

I have a hard time deciding if a rooster is more of a scorpio though. According to they have sadistic tendencies and very love/hate attitudes, and also they are people of extremes, everything is either black or white.

The dog definitely doesnt seem like a leo to me. But that's the only one that was left lol. The dog seems more like a capricorn because they criticize everything on its morality and have a stern serious demeanor, and have a hard time expressing feelings. But in real life the persoanlity of the animal (dog) is most like leo to me. But i guess dogs really arent like the actual animal. Dogs, the animal, are a ray of sunshine like leos are.


i think i will switch these two. It says roosters are not shy or discreet, and modesty is not their strongest virtue. And that dogs blush when someone gives them a compliment. So i think the rooster is best as a scorpio, and the dog is best as a virgo. The dog is considered to be the most critical sign of the chinese zodiac, so it fits well.

i Know those are the traditional associations, but I just can't see the pig as scorpio, The rat as sagittarius, the rabbit as pisces, or the tiger as aquarius, and the snake seems much more of a libra to me than a taurus. I'm a snake.

Tigers are warm, expressive and personal, while aquariuses seem cold distant and impersonal, though humorous. The snake is perhaps a bit too clingy and emotional and personal to be a detached libra, but every other quality matches so well to the extravagant, kind, and sophisticated libra that i cant ignore it. The rabbit is really cold and unaffectionate, and in fact seems almost like they are a lot more cerebral than emotional, though they arent really. Think of what a rabbit or cat looks like, with that blank expression in their eyes. That doesnt make me think pisces at all. And rabbits are nowhere near as big of dreamers as pisces are. The pig is almost exactly like a cancer, and o thinkthe goat fits pisces much better.

The reason for the traditional association must be because each sign in western astrology has to stay in its element. All the earthsigns must coincide with the earth signs in chinese astrology---the snake, ox, and rooster. Etc.
