The 144 combinations
(Western Astrology / Chinese Astrology)
The 144 combinations between the chinese
and the western Astrology
These combinations can be used for the
Chinese Year / Sign of the Zodiac
Chinese Moon house / Sign of the Zodiac
Chinese Double hour / Sign of the Ascendant
If you check the first pages of this book
again, you find which chinese sign corresponds with which western sign.
Using that, the 144 combinations can inform you also about the combination
Chinese Year / Chinese Double - Hour
For instance: Ox Year / Tiger Double Hour
= Ox - Gemini.
As you also realize there is the Chinese
double hour in this combinations as well as the Ascendant from the
western Horoscope. To get a complete picture you can also combine those
For instance: chinese Dog Hour / western
Taurus Ascendant = Dog - Taurus.
Again, keep in mind with all these combinations
to consider the elements that are part of the year, the Moon house (according
to your sign of the zodiac) and the double hour (according to the sign
your western scendant stands in).
The 12 Rat Combinations
Rat / Aries
Very sociable. They can mingle with people
from every level of the social ladder. Since they are very active, progressive
and fully involved in a busy live stile they tend to be often a bit hasty
or quickly irritated. They also like to be well informed and learn accordingly
much. It may occur that they are sometimes rather conceited.
Their activities are usually well timed
and have one particular goal, to make money. Practical as they are they
want to secure their existence in the first place. They have intellectual
interests too, like to read or even write them selfs. With their literate
talent they could manage easily to talk them selfs out of troubled situations
if that would ever become necessary. They are a bit slower than most other
Very energetic combination. They like
to communicate or to write because they are very good at it. Unfortunately
they tend to start to many things at once and have to realize than they
can't finish half of it. Loyality or reliability are rather difficult for
these people because they want to be open for new things. Sometimes they
can act like aggressive emperors.
Rat / Cancer
Calculating, clever and careful. This
combination has two mayor goals. A good family where they feel comfortable
and relaxed and money. Further fantastic ambitions are out of question,
they check first everything out with a very well developed instinct. In
public they are usually a bit reserved.
Rat / Lion
Attractive, boisterous, even aristocratic.
Everywhere somehow involved this combination makes sure they get what they
deserve, at least. They are not really greedy or calculating, it is simply
a matter of pride to them. Besides of that, enough money helps to maintain
individual freedom. Of course, with their superior attitude they are bound
for success. However, they have a big heart and are therefore often very
Rat / Virgo
They really dig their nose into whatever
interests them. Hyper busy as they are they could very well be scientists
or detectives. That is in the best case so, but some of these combinations
might just use their senses to parasite from others. All of these combinations
have one thing in common though, a very pointed tongue. Sometimes they
can of course also be snaky. In general they have unlimited possibilities.
Rat / Libra
Bubbly hungry for the excitements of live.
They like all harmonious societies. Of course, sometimes they are heading
straight into risky business with their attitude, may this be in love affairs
or with financial things. In general however they have a fine nose for
good opportunities. Also very well developed is their sense for beauty
and good looks.
Rat / Scorpio
Public live may seem to them as a bit
of a waste because they have a unbelievable determination to produce, to
work - and to get rich. They are potentially uptight, tricky and clever
enough to make friends with the right people. If they don't work in a mine
they make tough politicians or even writers, perhaps of bloody crime stories.
Competition is for them normal daily live.
Rat / Sagittarius
They can relay on good fortune and precise
inspirations to stay out of troubles. Besides of that they are very tricky
and have no scruples to use every trick they know. Together with their
supple nature they look often more like some dream dancer than a real person,
but that may be deceiving, they have a healthy sense for the reality. They
simply like to enjoy live.
Rat / Capricorn
They may live a bit on a intellectual
cloud but down on earth they are one of the more steady Rat combinations.
Loyal and tactful as they are they like to be in lasting relations. Most
characteristic however is their way of collecting things. Some wise inner
sense tells them to keep just about everything that comes across them,
you never know, some day it may be useful or bring some money. To have
some social live is also essential for them.
Rat / Aquarius
The least business type of all Rat combinations.
These people prefer personal relations and tasks with a social touch. With
their well developed sense to detect what's going on all around and their
intellectual capabilities, they could make very good writers or journalists.
Since they have a lot of different interests they need some personal freedom.
All though they have a broad minded and refreshing attitude they too like
to be in charge, at least of a small group.
Rat / Pisces
It could well be that this combination
is not really here, because they have so much fantasy that they might just
stay in their very own world, especially also because they are rather shy
and sensitive and prefer to stay at home for that matter. They might be
suited best in a artistic society or job because they are of course very
talented to write or paint. They might even be very good in business.
The 12 Ox Combinations
Ox / Aries
Careful and realisti, this combination
is maybe a bit slow, but they do get ahead. They don't give in. On their
straight way forward there is usually only one person important. Their
own one. Tolerance is not their best side but since they anyway seldom
need anyones help to move on, they don't have to bother. They can even
behave arrogant but inside they do have some real feelings too. Whatever
their attitude may be, they are always fair. It is simply not in their
interest to waste their precious time with stuff that doesn't bring anything
countable in the end.
Ox / Taurus
They sure know what they want. To get
there they don't look much to the right or the left. Some could be called
maniacs because they go ways no one else is going, there where there is
space and freedom, there where they can rule their own world or perhaps
the world of a few others too. If they go for it they wont give way for
others. All though they have a lot of self control, if somebody dares to
get in their way they get rude instantly and efficiently. For fantastic
philosophies and long discussions is no place in their world. With this
attitude they might be pretty lonely.
Ox / Gemini
To fall asleep around them seems impossible.
They are very temperamental, specially when they get angry. All though
very aware of responsibilities they are absolutely determined to be and
stay independent. They might not be seen very often anyway because they
could be on a hunt, on some mission or simply somewhere in the future all
together because they have this sense for coming trends. Down to earth
they are amazingly humorous and charming companions who can give others
the feeling of freedom to be just exactly as they are. Since they are the
intellectual type of researcher anyway they usually know very well what
they talk about.
Ox / Cancer
They may appear as dreamers, as slow couch
potatoes, but they are as steady as can be. Sure, home and family are their
favorite place to be, there they are usually in command, keep everything
up and in decent order and really want to posses their loved ones. They
prefer of course to do all the intimate things rather than stay in the
public limelight. They do care and love strongly and are very understanding
towards their loved ones. Hard work however is not necessarily something
that appeals to much to them. If possible they would rather prefer dealing
with art for instance or with food. They simply want to have some time
Ox / Lion
Born to be in charge, that much is clear.
They have everything it takes, other people mostly instantly accept that,
or they realize at least that people of this combination would have no
fear and no trouble to use anything to overcome opponents or obstacles.
As a matter of fact they are so determined with their authoritarian style
they could easily be called dictators. Unfortunately they are pretty inflexible,
so they will perhaps face their personal Waterloo once they loose a battle
or someone they love. It is their problem to think they are always best
Ox / Virgo
One more Ox combination that tends to
think they are perfect. This one however is seriously working hard for
it. Not in public though, because they prefer it quite and in solitude.
All though authoritarian too, they expect from others no more than what
they would expect from them selfs. Careful and reasonable as they are they
don't trust others to much. To ask someone for advice is probably the last
thing they would do. In relations they are very possessive because they
simply need to have the control about everything they do. The reason for
that is that they are not that self a sure and that they have high moral
ideals with which they will have difficulties to get into a intimate relation
anyway. If they would let go of all their standards they would perhaps
just fall from disappointment to disappointment.
Ox / Libra
This combination has certainly more interest
in the brighter side of live and for more comfort too. On the other hand
they might sometimes drift away from their usually well planned way. It
is definitively the most sociable Ox combination, they try to be kind and
civilized towards everyone. With this attitude they find it easy to make
friend, but they set very high standards in their quality as well as into
the quality of everything else. For intimate relations these people need
a long time before they trust someone completely, until they know everything
about their partner Once they found that trust and harmony they are very
solid with their love. They do have their ups and downs with their moods
but since they are extremely charming anyway people usually don't bother
to much about it.
Ox / Scorpio
A very intensive combination, perhaps
even an explosive one, depends on which side of the fence someone stands.
To friends and loved ones they are passionately dedicated, would do anything
for them. If they have an enemy it is the same, just the other way around.
In general it is better to be their friends than their enemies. It is usually
black or white for them, for shades in between they have no time. Whatever
they do, they do it completely. Art will most certainly be one of their
passions or they are very passionate moneymakers in business, they know
how to draw profit with their talents.
Ox / Sagittarius
Another very sociable Ox combination.
Besides their need to find financial security they are very adaptable,
all though with the desire to be in charge. Interesting for them seems
to be the control of social and moral standards, in their private live
as well as in the society all together. They have a certain flair for functional
style and are realistically determined to be as perfect as possible. If
challenged in their moral standards they might become very own.
Ox / Capricorn
They sure take them selfs serious. They
have their pre established opinions and wont give in on them, never mind
how hard it gets. All though perhaps a bit more colorful than the other
Ox combinations, their attitude is rather harsh and hopelessly determined.
They want to be in power and if the road that leads there is not funny
at all they give a dam. Psychologically speaking they are rather shy when
it comes to speak about feelings and emotions, so they put all their efforts
into their career. Morally they are in any case absolutely integer and
stand up to a promise for granted.
Ox / Aquarius
A combination that actually cares about
other people as much as about them selfs. They like it when someone asks
them for help, they are good friends too. However, since they are very
independent they like their personal freedom too, so they are the typical
hard to get types when it comes to intimate relations. For deep sensual
emotions they might anyway not be free enough in their minds. It could
be that they see often a bit to dark. Their moral standards may be to high
for comfort too. Since they tend to make their own rules they don't mind
to overlook the commonly established ones if they feel they are not right.
Ox / Pisces
A sensible combination. It is not always
certain which way they actually want to go. Is it the world of fantasy,
or is it the serious down to earth world of business? Besides of that they
are rather reserved but inside full of desires for the joys of live. To
be able to spend it big, to have everything they desire they get into business
and make money the tough way. They can be extremely materialistic all though
such sensitive dreamers. Naturally they don't have to many friends, they
are perhaps even lonely most of the time. As partners they are absolutely
loyal and not as bossy as most other Ox combinations. With their fantasy
they would make creative artistes too.
The 12 Tiger Combinations
Tiger / Aries
No patience, no lenience, this combination
is rotating forever, always in search for new experiences and joy. Of course,
they like to be always first. It has to be action, it has to be intensive.
Since they are usually rather attractive and above that open and serious
other people like them very well all though their temper can be irritated
very quickly. They really have a choleric and outraging temper in general.
People who think and act considered will find this combination rather tiring.
And of course, they don't waste their time to think about their attitude,
they simply say them selfs they are doing great. And that is basically
also what they do. They really manage to life live to the max.
Tiger / Taurus
Wait and see is the motto of this combination.
With this attitude they are certain winners. They know when to pounce and
how to make a fortune. They have great self control, even in intimacy.
However, sometimes they get carried away by passion -or by anger. Nice
if it is passion, nasty if it is anger because they have a very hefty temper
and don't bother to let it all out. They don't forget and revenge is nothing
unusual for them. They can be very cruel in that particular field. In general
they are in favor of a orderly and disciplined environment around them,
never mind if it is in their home or at their working place. Basically
they are modern and conservative at the same time and have the gift to
give others the feeling of freedom to be just the way they are.
Tiger / Gemini
Always ready to rumble, always on the
go. Even in relations they use the simplest incident to pack their stuff
and run. They are just not made to let the grass grow underneath their
feet. They also like the game of seduction to much to be tied up with the
same partner for long, unless it would be a very tolerant one. Unfortunately
they are often to hasty to finish their projects, so in the end they may
not achieve very much all together. On the other hand they trust in their
good fortune and try to create their very own road through live where they
have always the primacy.
Tiger / Cancer
Often victims of all their mood swings.
They are great romantics, like the brighter side of life and can be very
sensual. Inside they may be soft but they are also very possessive. It
doesn't show on the outside because they know how to fool other peoples
eye by playing the nice little gentle cat In business and job however they
usually do very well, they are good decision makers. Necessary for their
comfort is a stable home situation where they can live their very own crazy
rhythm. If they don't find that situation they become irresponsible and
egoistic. In general they are very pleasant companions.
Tiger / Lion
Here comes the king. At least they like
to be treated and respected as such. But they actually have all it takes
to be respected anyway. A superior impressive appearance as well as class
and pride. Since they are also honest there wont be to many stones thrown
in their way anyhow. They would react rather narrow minded if it would
happen. In day to day live they simply can't shine in their brightest light,
they could probably not even function normally or they would become lazy
couch captains. What they need is a good amount of responsibilities, never
mind if that is around their family or on their job.
Tiger / Virgo
This combination can maintain social contacts
on all levels which helps them of course to get ahead. They are usually
very honest and loyal but if it would become necessary they would have
a few magic tricks or a little efficient intrigue somewhere in their pockets
to help things getting done and over with. It also seems that they often
forget their partners over some things they may have to do for their career.
They anyway tend to have their emotions under control. With their sense
for organization they are very well suited to be chief of a department
or to be leaders of a labor union.
Tiger / Libra
In their career they are very capable
because they have the charming way that goes along with everyone. They
also don't go for open confrontations so they save a lot of energy there.
A little bit of risk, a little bit of artistic charm and the business is
done. A rather different story may be their private live because to be
in love or to fall in love is essential for them. Since they are passionate,
sensual and very talented they shouldn't have a problem to find a partner.
But unfortunately they are at the same time also very vulnerable and sentimental.
Disappointment may cross their way. Once disappointed they lose it quite
a bit, start to question them selfs and don't know anymore what they really
want. Emotional ups and downs are simply a constant part of their lives.
Tiger / Scorpio
Dreamers or bohemians. This combination
is living a bit above ground. But also here, looks can be deceiving. They
are intelligent and have one of the best instincts for people there is,
so they know often already in advance what others are going to do and can
take precautions if necessary to protect their interests. Tactics and strategies
are their favorite game anyway. They know which games they can win and
which ones are hopeless. The same intensive care will be given to friends
and people they love, either to protect or to posses them. On the other
hand they wouldn't like it if someone would try to get hold of them because
they need to feel individual and independent. If things don't work out
as they have planned them they tend to get into a rage.
Tiger / Sagittarius
Their appearance can be seen already from
a distance. Its big, splendid and very much talented to draw attention.
They are the entertainers who can bring a whole crowd to cheers and tears.
If not entertaining they are usually very generous and just characters.
Since they never lose their youth they are not really fit for an ordinary
live. Put behind a desk or working in a regular job makes them rather miserable.
If they try to adapt they may just create a complete mess because they
couldn't separate dreams from their silly reality.
Tiger / Capricorn
Anything, just nothing plain normal please.
All though they can work hard, even do simple jobs, they want to be first,
they want to be special. With their strength and sheer determination they
can make it. It doesn't necessarily have to be political power or material
gain they're after, it is rather projects, records or progress in general
what they want to achieve. With all that will and determination they might
miss out on the intimate front, they are simply a bit to serious to enjoy
the pleasures live can offer. Disrespectful behavior can make them wild.
Tiger / Aquarius
Idealistic, futuristic and free thinking
combination. For home sweet home they have not to much time because the
world needs them. Some hungry people in Africa, a earthquake in Japan,
they are there to help. Commitments like a marriage are certainly a difficult
thing for them, at least if it would mean that they would have to be at
home by 18 hours every day. If present situations do not fit their understanding
of what's right or wrong they simply change the rules for them selfs. They
like -as all other Tigers- a good bit of provoking behavior but they wouldn't
let others look to deep into their private live. Since they believe in
the good of people and also strongly in their own good fortune they can
maneuver them selfs sometimes into problems, but they usually manage to
escape unhurt. They don't mind to stay in front of a microphone and spread
their message around, whatever that may be.
This combination is a bit more moderate
than the others. They try to get what they want more with psychological
means than pure force or strength. However, if under pressure they will
be nothing short of any other Tiger in their response. What they seem to
like is those sad tragic events, the great gestures that lead in the end
to absolutely nothing, or to pain, such as lost love and misfortune in
business. Naturally they are better off being artists than hard working
employees in a job that deals with nothing than facts and figures. If they
are not constantly caught by their own fantasy world they can be very helpful
