Chinese Zodiac, Rat aggressive; Buffalo worker’s smile and his friend Tiger the cat or rabbit prudent spiffy the Dragon, the wise snake, horse talented, goat sweet, joyous Monkey; the proud rooster, the faithful dog, and Pig scrupulous. So he decided to found the Chinese calendar on these animals in the order they came to listen. Each animal has a year dedicated to his nature, and animals run in a 12-year cycle.
Much of Chinese philosophy is built around the belief in the five elements and their ability to interact with and build relationships. The five elements of metal, water, wood, fire and earth, were a driving force in Chinese culture almost from the beginning. In Chinese tradition, the five elements interact to influence its destiny, with the astrological sign of the year of birth.People born during the years 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987 and 1999 are most fortunate to be born in the year of the rabbit. If you or someone you know is a rabbit … head high, it will be an interesting year. In Chinese mythology, the year of the Rabbit symbol represents longevity and it is believed that the rabbit has a close relationship with the moon. Westerners can refer to man in the moon, but when the Chinese peer to the moon, what they see is the date of rabbits by a rock, holding a cup that overflows with the elixir of immortality. As symbols go, this is considered one of the most beautiful.
However, I was born in the Year of the Snake, characterized by a spirit deep and sophisticated approach of love and life. According to the literature, people Snake lot of sympathy for others and try to help those less fortunate. They are known to be attractive, intense and calm at the surface! On the other hand, people are often quite vain snake, selfish and a bit stingy. Well, forget that part.
I’m also a big fan, of course, Chinese food! It is customary to eat the cooked fish when marking the Chinese New Year, according to the people of Chengdu 1, a favorite restaurant in the Plaza Shopping Pilgrim, 89 Pompton Ave., and Cedar Grove. At another fantastic restaurant Chinese, Ma TS, staff dined Shanghai dumplings and honey walnut chicken when they celebrated the Year of the Rabbit a little early. (It is located at 199 Bellevue Avenue, Montclair.)
In addition to food and astrology, I am intrigued by these aspects of Chinese culture: the beautiful calligraphy, traditional music and opera, fashion beautiful and complicated history. And with apologies to my beloved cats, I think the Shih Tzu, very elegant little dog of China, is appealing. Its name means “Lion Dog” because the dog was bred to look like guardian lions in traditional Chinese art.
Which is a different system than we are accustomed in the West. Chinese astrology, more than 5,000 years, paints a portrait of personalities. He tries to explain how people react to life stress, challenges and relationships based on birth year.
Chinese astrology is based on animals that make up the signs, the 12 equal parts of the Chinese zodiac. They are animals that have appeared in response to an invitation to all the stories and traditions.
In the Chinese zodiac, the rabbit is the fourth in a cycle of 12 animals that represent each Chinese New Year, with the year of the rabbit within 3 February 2011 to January 22, 2012.
America’s top diplomat Hillary Clinton urged revelers to “continue to work together in this New Year to deepen our friendships and make progress on the challenges we face.”
“President Obama and I are committed to the people of the Asia-Pacific – committed to strengthening our ties with traditional allies, to make new friends and working to establish constructive relations throughout the region,” she said, noting the important contribution of Asian Americans.
Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, welcomed the Lunar New Year as an opportunity to “celebrate a rich culture and heritage, a time to reflect on the past year, embrace the possibilities of the future, and j ‘I look forward to a year of hope and prosperity, optimism and opportunity. “
