What is the purpose of the Chinese zodiac? Is it just to a way to pick up dates, or "find your true love?" It might have come to this in modern-day, but the Chinese
zodiac exists for more than that. It exists as a reflection of Chinese philosophy and culture. It is important to understand this zodiac in order to better understand the tradtitions and lifestyle of the Chinese people. Like many other cultures, they have many mythical stories, and in this site, we will touch on those important subjects, as well as origin of the zodiac, what people's beliefs are here and around the world, how it is important to the Chinese culture. The historical and cultural context will provide a rich and intriguing perspective on Chinese tradition and culture in general.
