Basic Practical Applications of Chinese Astrology – Part III
Welcome to the final part of this series on the practical application of Chinese astrology in your daily life to create more good luck for yourself. In this article, you will see the last 4 animals of the Chinese zodiac, the monkey, the rooster, the dog and the pig.
The Monkey is the ninth sign of the Chinese zodiac. Monkeys tend to stand out from the crowd. They have interesting personalities. These people are competitive, they love to win, and they have the energy to work to get what they want. They love power. If you want a Monkey to do a good job, make him the leader. If you make him a follower, there is a risk that he will leave the project halfway.
Monkeys hate being told what to do. Like tigers, they love to be in command and control. Although they may appear tough on the surface, deep down they are quite insecure. Most monkeys are good leaders. They are able to lead well and get things done. If they are followers, the leader had better earn his respect, if not, the Monkey will just run off and leave the job half done.
Monkeys love to be the center of attention. If you don’t make them the center of attention, their interest wanes and they start to get bored easily. These people are very helpful, but they just hate asking for help. Ask a Monkey for help while congratulating him at the same time, you will surely get what you wish for. When it comes to asking for help, you would rather suffer in silence than ask for help.
On the other hand, they tend to be argumentative and sarcastic when things don’t go their way. Monkeys hate when they oppose their ideas and plans. If their ideas are not taken into account, they will just do a lousy job and be done with it. By their attitude, they offend others and unknowingly make enemies.
The life of these people is full of ups and downs. They are fantastic risk takers. Some of them are born gamers. This explains why money comes and goes easily. Like the dragon and the tiger, monkeys hate to lose face. They are quite vindictive when it comes to making them lose face. If you want to disagree with a Monkey’s point of view, you must put it in such a way that it appears that it is he who is changing his point of view.
Like the real Monkey, these people are witty, clever and full of tricks. They love to laugh and party, at the same time, they can be mischievous. Monkeys are usually happy-go-lucky people, preferring to laugh about their problems.
The Monkey gets along very well with the Rat, the Dragon and the Snake. Monkey represents Metal. If Metal is your favorable element, hang a picture of a Monkey in your home or office to increase your good luck. Monkey combines with Rat and Dragon to form Water.
For parents whose kids prefer metal, you might want to buy “Journey To The West” cartoons for them to watch or tell them to play Nintendo’s “Donkey Kong” video game. The monkey figurines will also help improve your luck cycle. The Hour of the Monkey runs from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm every day, while the month of the Monkey is from August 8 to September 7 of each year.
The Rooster is the tenth sign of the Chinese zodiac. Speaking from personal experience, I have a lot of great things to say about the Rooster people. Rooster people are very loyal. You can always count on them as friends. They will not betray you. Speaking of this, Lim Bo Seng was also born under the sign of the Rooster. Despite being tortured by the Japanese during World War II, he refused to give them any information about his comrades.
Sadly, he died in a prison at Batu Gajah in Malaysia at the age of 35 in 1944. Very sad, but without his sacrifice, things could have been worse for Singapore back then. Going back to the Rooster’s personality, these people are very sharp and observant. Very little escapes his eyes. They tend to be very simple too. Sometimes others find them too forceful. Despite their sharp tongue, these people are very kind-hearted and helpful. They will not hesitate to help those in need.
Coming to their other side, these individuals tend to be very impatient and bossy. They love to be smarter than others. At times, they can appear smug. Personally I like its direct character. You know these people won’t play behind your back. These people do not hold grudges, they forgive and forget easily.
Because they are too detail oriented, Rooster people seem to be very demanding and picky. It is true that, in certain situations, they overanalyze and slow things down. Rooster people should learn to relax more and not put too much pressure on themselves.
The Rooster gets along very well with the Ox, the Snake and the Dragon. Rooster represents Metal. In addition to using Monkeys to increase the effect of Metal in your daily life, you can also use the Rooster to achieve the same effect. Eating chicken is one way to increase the effect of Metal. The most effective way is to eat steamed chicken instead of fried chicken.
The hour of the Rooster runs from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm each day, while the month of the Rooster is from September 8 to October 7 of each year. Pictures and figures of chickens will help to increase the effect of Metal in your day to day. For kids who need Metal, watching or playing “Chicken Little” helps.
The eleventh sign of the Chinese zodiac is the Dog. Like their animal counterparts, dogs make loyal friends. Due to their kind and helpful nature, they are often taken advantage of. Because of this, some of them tend to be very defensive. They will “sniff” people before they start to trust. Once you earn their trust, they will always trust you.
Through years of experience, I’ve realized that the older they get, the more fun-loving Dog people tend to be. At a younger age, they tend to be more severe. Dog lovers are very emotional. During a heartwarming movie, most of those with wet eyes are usually dogs.
Dogs are very persistent. They will keep going until the job is done. These people tend to be quite resistant to change. They prefer to stay in their comfort zone and not try new things. Dog lovers tend to worry too much. They are quite expressive. You can easily read his emotions on his face. These people are never selfish. They will sacrifice their own earnings to help their friends. True, a Dog can be a man’s best friend. A Dog person will also be your best friend.
The Dog gets along very well with the Tiger, the Horse and the Rabbit. The Dog represents the Hot Earth, like the Sheep. Dog combines with Tiger and Horse to form Fire. Dogs make very good pets for those born in winter due to the Tierra Caliente effect. The hour of the dog runs from 7 pm to 9 pm each day, while the month of the dog is from October 8 to November 7 of each year.
Now for the last sign of the Chinese zodiac, the twelfth sign, the Pig. The Pig gives people the impression that he is stupid and lazy. Nothing could be further from the truth. Pigs are very intelligent and hardworking (if they want to).
More often than not, they will only choose to work hard on the things that are relevant to them. If they refuse to do something, no one can make them. They are very stubborn people. Pigs tend not to follow advice. They have their own mind to decide something. Although they may appear weak on the surface, they don’t feel pressured when it comes to fighting for their rights.
Pigs are peaceful people. They prefer to live in their own world and do their own thing. His weakness is starting a project and giving up when things get tough. This explains why they tend to be unsuccessful in their endeavors. Another negative side of Pig people is that they love to argue for the sake of arguing. Even though their point may be irrelevant, they will still insist that they are right. If you’ve argued with a Pig person before, you know what I mean.
On the good side, pigs are very nice and polite people. They are quite charitable when it comes to helping others. Pigs are quite generous when it comes to donations for good causes. They tend to be quite gullible when it comes to trusting people. As a result, they tend to fall prey to scammers. But the pigs will simply shrug off the experience and might repeat the story all over again.
As their friend, you may need to be patient with them. After listening to your advice and doing things their way, they will come back and complain that they are in a bad situation. And when you ask why your advice is not followed, they will make all kinds of excuses, but they will never accept responsibility themselves.
Another negative point that I observed about pigs is their selfishness. They will only do things for their own benefit. On the surface, they may seem nice, but they are quite selfish when it comes to their own interests. Don’t be surprised if your interest is being “sacrificed.” Oh yeah, one more point before concluding, there is a saying in Cantonese called “Act like a pig and eat the tiger”. This means pretending to be innocent. Something like “A snake in the grass.” Some Pig people are like that, they act innocent, but you don’t know what’s underneath.
The Pig gets along very well with the Rabbit, the Sheep and the Tiger. The Pig also represents Water, like the Rat. The Pig represents Water, which is favorable for those born in Summer. The hour of the pig runs from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm each day, while the month of the pig is from November 8 to December 7 of each year. Eating pig, having piggy banks and pig figures around you helps to increase the effect of water in your daily life.
