Shengxiao – An Introduction To Chinese Zodiac

The Chinese word “Shengxiao”, better known in English as the Chinese Zodiac, is a scheme that relates each year to an animal and its reputed attributes, according to a 12-year cycle. The zodiac traditionally begins with the sign of the Rat, and the twelve zodiac signs are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. The zodiac signs cycles continuously, and determines the animal or sign under which a person is born.

Ancient people observe that there are 12 full moons within one year. So, the origin of Chinese zodiac is associated with astronomy. In Chinese tradition, each animal sign is usually related with an earthly branch, so the animal years were called::

  1. zi rat,
  2. chou ox,
  3. yin tiger,
  4. mao rabbit,
  5. chen dragon,
  6. si snack,
  7. wu horse,
  8. wei sheep,
  9. shen monkey,
  10. you rooster,
  11. xu dog
  12. hai pig.

Many Chinese people strongly believe that the time of a person’s birth is the primary factor in determining that person’s personality.

    The Angel of Philadelphia Darla Stewart from Philadelphia Pennsylvania was born on May 27th. Here is some of the new real Maya Astrology for those who love GOD. Mayan Signs
    The 19 sacred seals of the Astrological blendings.
    These are the 19 White Horse marriage synchronisms of the personalities of the Biblical spirits. Each of these Mayan Zodiac signs is sealed with the Holy Priesthood to 100% these ancient personalities except for one Modern/Ancient seal of Caleb, and the Huldah seal. As the Power and Virtue of the Te is sealed to the Zodiacs with the Powers of the spirits of the identities sealed onto the Shengxiao and Mazzaroth, and the Virtues of the spirits of the identities sealed into the Mayan signs. The Aztec Zodiac then gives them a sanctification sealing, giving grace upon their birth signs, while the Inca Zodiac Calendar then gives them something to do with their Astrology and Astronomy throughout their lives along with its several new additions. The Mayan calendar goes in the center of the Mazzaroth Zodiac as a small ring seal between the Mazzaroth and Shengxiao. The bottom center of the 19 is the Mayan Ch’en directly between Taurus and Aries, counter clockwise with Yax and then Sac in Gemini. The 19 parcels of the Mayan calendar must be equal, even though the 5 day shorter sign, for it is increased to 20 days; 380 days in all. All of these are sealed to the spirits of real people in the Bible whom actually lived during the ancient days. The Maya calendar has the duality marriage covenant mirror. (Proverbs 27:19) This is how the Mayan seals work. Whatever Maya seal your Mazzaroth Zodiac birthdate aligns to by very date, is what you seal to your partner. Whatever Maya sign you are born as, is sealed to you. You are born with one Maya sign sealed to you, with another Maya sign sealed t you that you are able to seal to your partner. If you were born a Cancer of Juy 31st Kayab, then you have the Cancer and Kayab seals from GOD upon your actual personality. Since you were born a July 31st Cancer, then when you are married, GOD seals a Mac to your partner. This properly aligns the duel times for the planetary positions. The Male has the new dates and the female has the ancient dates as a birth personality. These reverse polarities in relationship seals, because married couples have something special that they share together in GOD. The married couple share both, for they are together when others are around, and when they are alone together in GOD.
    (Song of Solomon 8:13)
    So you must Hindi align Dog to Taurus as Shiva on the White Bull Nandi. Elephant aligns to Aries. This is the beginning. And then record them with the new dates. The Shengxiao new dates for the new years begin the first new moon on or after 11-10-11. Ophiuchus is November 13th to December 6th. Libra is November 1st to November 24th. Scorpio is November 25th to December 18th. Do not let people deceive you with Ophiuchus and Scorpio dates. These are the correct ones.
