Chinese Astrology animal sign luck and 12 animal signs
Why 12 animal signs? It is actually the Jupiter position in relation to the year of the birth. The Jupiter is in 12 years cycle. This means that the Jupiter returns in every 12 years to the same position where you were born. So every 12 years the same animal sign repeats. In Chinese Astrology it is called the “Same Animal Sign year” or Tai Sui year.
Jupiter returns at the age of 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 and so. This same animal sign year brings a lot of impacts into life that year. For example, at the age of 12, starting high school, new school, new place and meeting new friends, this bring impact into life.
