Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Chinese astrology includes five elements in each person's personal horoscope. Which of the following is NOT one of these elements?

Answer: Air

The concept of Wu Xing is the concept that all things are part of five continually changing elements. These are metal, fire, water, earth, and wood. Your element is decided by which part of the year you are born in. Thus you can have a water monkey, a metal monkey, a fire monkey etc. Each one of these aspects is linked to a particular direction, a season, a color, and an astronomical body.
2. Chinese astrology uses which concept of polar opposites in their beliefs?

Answer: Yin and yang

Years alternate between yin years and yang years. These polar forces are a part of a person's birth sign. For example you can be a yin water monkey or a yang water monkey. While many many think that Yin and yang means male or female, it actually represents polar opposites of many things.

Taming the horse can be difficult.

9. A herpetologist could tell you that which sign is related to mysticism, deep thought and cautiousness?

Answer: Snake

Possibly the most mystical sign of the Chinese zodiac, those born under the sign of the snake are often mysterious, soft-spoken individuals who tend to get lost in their thoughts. They are shrewd individuals who are very cautious and distrustful. While the snake has problems with communication and often prefers to be alone, it is not because he dislikes others.

11. Bounce down these options and tell me: Which of these signs is closely related to the sign of pisces in Western astrology?

Answer: Hare

In the West, this is often called the year of the rabbit, which is a misnomer as China does not have any native species of rabbits but at least seven native species of hare. This sign is known for being a loyal friend who is sensitive to the feelings of others.

They prefer to work in the background as opposed to being on the front of the stage. They are flexible and adapt well to change. On the down side, they are often superficial, moody and deceptive. This is a peaceful sign that will use manipulation if the situation calls for it.

They often love to engage in or watch sports, game shows, and other competitive type activities.
13. Which one of the following hard-working animals is a sign in the Chinese zodiac?

Answer: Ox

The hard-working ox symbolizes the 2nd sign of the Chinese zodiac. Those born under this sign are said to be industrious, ambitious, tenacious, and methodical. They can also be stubborn, hot-tempered, rigid, and narrow-minded. They often make good businessmen who will start their own business in a realistic manner and are not prone to indulge in flights of fancy or believe in get-rich-quick schemes.

They are realists who expect others to be as stable and persevering as themselves and are prone to show disdain to those who do not uphold their high ideals.
14. Some people might find it a"maze"ing that which animal is the very first sign in Chinese astrology?

Answer: Rat

The sign of the rat is the first of the 12 rotating signs of the Chinese zodiac. People born under the influence of this sign are intelligent, charming and very eloquent. Sadly, they are also vengeful, stubborn, and controlling. They are an industrious sign with great ambitions.

They can be cruel and manipulative to those who stand in their way. They usually keep tight control of their emotions and usually have a close circle of friends with whom they socialize. The motto of the rat is "I Rule".
15. The beginning of a new zodiac year starts on January 1st.

Answer: False

The Chinese calendar switches from one sign to another on the Chinese New Year which is not on January 1. The Chinese lunar calendar varies and the first day of the new year usually falls between January 15 and February 15. So, if you were born in the first two months of the Gregorian Calendar you should check to see which sign you actually are. Each sign mixes with an element and so you might be a Fire Rat, a Water Rat, or a Wood Rat. You will also be either Yin or Yang depending on the year you were born. You add this factor in and you could be a Yin Wood Rat, a Yang Fire Rat, a Yin Earth Rat etc.

There are many sites online that will help you discover your sign in Chinese astrology.
