The Major Cycles of Chinese Astrology
12 Chinese astrological signs are the twelve 30 degree sectors of the Earth's 360-degree orbit around the sun. 12 Chinese signs of the zodiac reflect the position of the sun. They correspond to Chinese astrological months. For example, The Tiger month begins when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. The 10-Year Major Cycles derives from the astrological month of the Chinese zodiac birth chart.
The Sequence Order of the Major Cycles
Chinese Zodiac Birth Chart is built by the Stem-Branch calendar, which is a counting system of 60 using 10 Stems and 12 Branches. If a man is born in the Yang animal year or a woman born in the Yin animal year, then the first Major Cycle will be the next Stem-Branch of the astrological month. The sequence of the Major Cycles is in ascending order. If a man is born in the Yin animal year or a woman born in the Yang animal year, then The sequence of the Major Cycles is in descending order.
The sequence order of 12 Chinese astrological signs reflects the position of the sun. The Tiger Month starts when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. The Rabbit Month begins when the sun enters 345th degree. The 12 zodiac months form a cycle of a year, which covers four seasons and a life cycle of a plant. The life cycle from birth to death projects into the Chinese astrological 10-Year Major Cycles.
When does the first Major Cycle Begin?
If the sequence of the Major Cycles is in ascending order, then we need to count how many days from birthday to the next starting date of the astrological month. If the sequence of the Major Cycles is in descending order, then we need to count how many days from the first date of the astrological month to the birthday.
Next, we need to convert the Day-Difference to the Beginning Time of the Major Cycle. Three days will be one year, one day will be four months, and one hour will be ten days. It's required a Chinese astrology calendar to know the exact starting time of the astrological months for different timezones. It's quite complicated to do the hand calculation without a computer. Therefore, the following tool helps us to do the job.
Chinese astrology can tell the Rise and Fall of a human destiny cycle from the 10-year Major Cycles. Stems and Branches in the Major Cycles can translate into Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth). If you find your Lucky Element in a 10-year cycle, then you should do well in that ten years. You can find your Chinese astrology birth chart, Lucky Element, and Major Cycles in the Rise and Fall of the life Chart or the 10-God Chinese Astrology Birth Chart.
