The Importance of the Chinese Zodiac Compatibility

Many Chinese people take the zodiac year signs very seriously, paying for having elaborate readings done to check for compatibility before their children are wed.

Readings can be done to the month and hour of birth, but for fun, most people just focus on the years. Your Chinese Zodiac Compatibility knowledge can help you strike a friendly conversation with people in the Far East.

If you look at the Chinese zodiac on a wheel, you will notice that the incompatible are signs directly across from one another. Groupings of Chinese horoscope signs are also important with regard to good compatibility, and here is how those go:

Groups of three which are most compatible with Chinese Zodiac Compatibility:

Rats, Dragons, and Monkeys - This group is made up of people who are energetic and passionate, sometimes even overwhelming to others outside this grouping.

Oxen, Snakes, and Roosters - This is the group of serenity and patience, sometimes to the point of annoyance of other signs!

Tigers, Horses, and Dogs - Members of this group are all looking for soul mates, but they are also individuals who see themselves and others as they are.

Rabbits, Rams, and Pigs - This grouping is made up of members who give others so much that they can easily be abused. They need to be matched with each other.

Chinese signs are also noted for particular incompatibility. The most incompatible Chinese zodiac signs are these:

  • Rat and Horse
  • Ox and Ram
  • Tiger and Monkey
  • Rabbit and Rooster
  • Dragon and Dog
  • Snake and Pig

A person serious about Chinese Zodiac Compatibility wouldn't agree to a union in one of these matches.

You can check to see which sign you are by looking at these dates. If you were born in January or February, though, you will need to check a more definitive chart because, since the Chinese Lunar New Year begins during one of these months, you might actually be in the adjacent sign.

From this chart you can get an idea of where your Chinese Zodiac Compatibility lies.
