Every living being wants to be loved. The definition of love is always incomplete because love has so many forms and dimensions. So, will you find love this Chinese New Year? Will you find your soulmate? What will your love life look like in Year of the Rabbit 2023? Let’s know the answer to all these questions.
It is believed in Chinese astrology that people born in the same year, share the same traits. Chinese Astrology is based on the lunar calendar. Each month begins with a New Moon and lasts for approximately 29 days. The Chinese year begins and ends in either January or February.
The date is decided by the Chinese Lunar Calendar, which is based on the cycles of the moon and sun and is generally 21–51 days behind the Gregorian (internationally-used) calendar. The date of Chinese New Year changes every year, but it always falls between 21 January and 20 February. The day of Chinese New Year is a new moon day, usually the second after the winter solstice.
Each year in the repeating zodiac cycle of 12 years is represented by a zodiac animal. Chinese Astrology identifies the world as being comprised of five elements: fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. In the lunar calendar, each element is linked to a two-year period, and governs the motivating forces in your life.
Fire signs are inspired by enthusiasm, Earth signs look to create security, people born under the Metal element are creative, while Water signs form emotional bonds. People born under the Wood element are explorers. Chinese Astrology places great emphasis on the lunar phase of birth. The Chinese zodiac or shengxiao, is calculated on a year-by-year basis. This system of divination links a person’s temperament with the phase of the Moon at the time of their birth. Chinese people believe that a person’s horoscope, personality, and love compatibility are closely associated with his or her Chinese zodiac sign, and are determined by his or her birth year.
