Chinese 24 Seasons Calendar - Section & Center Points

The Chinese calendar combines the lunar and solar systems together. The lunar calendar is the cycle of the moon. The solar calendar divides the year into 24 solar segments according to the sun positions on the tropical zodiac (Similar to western astrology). Each segment's name was given for ancient Chinese farmers' use. The first month, Tiger month, begins from the Start of Spring segment or when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. The second month, Rabbit month, begins from the Excited Insects segment or when the sun enters 345th degree. The beginning of a solar month is called the Section Point. The middle point of a solar month is called the Center Point. There are 12 Section Points and 12 Center Points in a year. 12 Center Points are equivalent to 12 western horoscopes. For example, the segments of Rain Water and Vernal Equinox are Center Points. The astrology names of Pisces and Aries apply to these Center Points. More information is at the theory of Chinese Lunar Calendar. Chinese Astrology Calendar and Chinese Farmer's Calendar use solar months.
