Dragon Temple Chinese Zodiac Tour

Code : china_dragon01

Belief, superstition, cultural curiosity or just plain "hedging your bets". Many newspapers include horoscopes which we look to for guidance. In Chinese culture there is Sheng Xiao, also known as Chinese Zodiac, which attributes 12 animals in a yearly cycle progressing on Chinese New Year (commonly in February). This cultural belief pays close attention to "unlucky" times. These are different for each animal. This year the dragon, ox, dog and goat need extra luck and, great news, it is possible to "smooth your way" in true Asian fashion through ceremony and offering at a Chinese Temple. Even better news...Pickaboo has it all sorted for you!

Details

As much as we assign certain attributes to certain birth signs in Western superstition we also can believe that opposites attract and that certain birth signs are better off avoiding others. The Chinese Zodiac features similar observations. The biggest issue is that certain years will attract certain benefits or bad fortunes.

In 2018 it is the "Year of the Dog". Adversely there are 4 birth signs that will find this year more challenging than others:

  • Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012
  • Ox: 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009
  • Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006
  • Goat: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003

*(please understand that the Chinese New Year runs February to January so we are stating the calendar year it starts in)
