Chinese HoroscopeTypes of Horoscopes | Publicado el 10/18/2011
One of the most antique civilizations and with considerable tradition is the Chinese culture, since these people made great contributions to exact sciences and other disciplines, such as astrology by developing the Chinese Horoscope. This is one of the most ancient horoscopes and it is believed that it was created during the Qin Shi Hugandi dynasty, approximately between the years 221 and 210 b.C.
The difference between the Chinese horoscope and other zodiacs is that the first one is based on the cycles of the moon, not the ones of the sun, meaning that the years are also based on the moon. Each year has twelve new moons and a thirteen moon each twelve years, this is also why the dates of a year are never the same than the last one.
The zodiac cycle in the Chinese horoscope has a duration of twelve years and not twelve months as other horoscopes and the order of the signs is always the same.
