The Chinese New Year is about to start on the 12th of February, 2021. This day is also a New Moon that ushers the Year of the Ox.
A New Year also brings images of fireworks, celebration, hugs, gifts, and a change in the calendar. The West observes its New Year immediately as our Earth completes one whole circle around the Sun.
This also changes our relationship with other planetary bodies and stars. However, not all calendars follow the movement of the Sun. Some are lunar calendars like the Chinese calendar which measures time-based on the relationship of the Earth to the Sun and the Moon. Therefore, the Chinese New Year is different from the Western New Year.
Chinese people celebrate their New Year by exchanging red envelopes containing money based on the challenges the person faced throughout the previous year. The older Chinese offer red envelopes to single people or children.
Animals of the Chinese Horoscope:
The twelve animals that represent each cycle during their coincidence with Buddha create an important aspect of the Chinese New Year. Chinese horoscopes say that every person and the 12 animals, including the pig, dog, rooster, monkey, goat, horse, snake, dragon, rabbit, tiger, ox, and rat, are controlled by the signs of the zodiac.
The Metal Ox is the 2021 Chinese New Year animal with a polarity of Yin. They consider that each sign connects the human soul to their dominant animal and has an influence on their spiritual experience throughout the year.
