Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

The origin of the 12 animal signs is not very clear. But most legends credit Buddha (circa 563 - 483 B.C.) with the creation of the 12 animal cycle. Supposedly, he invited all the animals in jungle to visit him, but for some reason, only 12 animals showed up. To thank them, Buddha gave each animal a year which would be dedicated to that animal alone. The years were allocated in the order in which the animals arrived. The 12 animals appeared in this order: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, cock, dog and pig.

The Chinese animal signs are a 12-year cycle used for dating the year. They represent a cyclical concept of time, rather than the western linear concept. The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on the cycles of the month, and is constructed in a different fashion than the western solar calendar. It is the longest chronological record in history, dating from 2600 B.C., when Emperor Huang Ti introduced the first cycle of the zodiac.
