Chinese Astrology: Are You Compatible?

Chinese Astrology and Relationships: Animal Magnetism

Are you dating a Rat or a Snake? Perhaps your lover is an aggressive Tiger or maybe a bit of a Boar? Are you sure that they’re your best romantic match? If they’re part of your trine or triangle, then they definitely are. If, however, they’re that one-in-twelve sign that you’re most likely to have conflict with, you may have some challenges ahead.

Yin and Yang

When it comes to the difference between compatibility and conflict, Chinese astrology makes it pretty simple to understand—it’s as black and white as a yin/yang symbol. That’s not to say that if you’re a Dragon and your sweetheart turns out to be a Dog that you should automatically kick them to the curb. If you’re making it work, then kudos to the two of you. However, if conflict with a partner is a major part of your world, you might find yourself contemplating the idea that there are just a few short inches separating a curb from a rough road.

Of course the dynamic of compatibility and conflict doesn’t just apply to lovers. Our trines are also the people (or animals) that we should surround ourselves with because they’re the ones we work best with and the ones that will help us reach our personal best.

Chinese astrology is based on the lunar year which begins around the time of the first New Moon in the sign of Aquarius. It can occur anywhere between mid-January and mid-February in a given year.

If you don’t see your year of birth below, find the closest one and count forward or backward—a sign repeats once every 12 years.


Each sign is compatible with two other sings and has one sign they are in conflict with. If paired with any other sign, the partnership can go either way. In Chinese astrology, when it comes to conflict and compatibility, opposites do not attract!

These people are intelligent, highly independent and live life with purpose. They rarely have trouble finding one other. The Ox conflicts with the Sheep. The Snake conflicts with the Boar and the Rooster conflicts with the Rabbit.

The Tiger, Horse and Dog

This group is best known for their unconventional approaches to life as well as their humanitarian ideals. Their idealistic views are what bring them together, forming an unbreakable bond. The Tiger conflicts with the Monkey. The Horse conflicts with the Rat and the Dog conflicts with the Dragon.

The Rabbit, Sheep and Boar

This is an intuitive bunch that thrives on the love and appreciation of beauty and art. Similar to Western water signs, they are fueled by their senses and emotions. The Rabbit conflicts with the Rooster. The Sheep conflicts with the Ox and the Boar conflicts with the Snake.

    Dear Readers: Wow – it would be almost impossible for me to answer everyone’s question short of a reading, but just let me say – first, thanks for reading my article and second, congratulate yourselves on taking an active part in deciphering your own Chinese Astrology Charts. The above combinations (trines) are people who are good for your life and the people you’re most compatible with. The one opposite sign (there’s one for each of the 12 signs) is someone who may not be compatible with you and are actually your least compatible matches overall. That’s not to say that if you’re with someone who is your opposite sign that you won’t be able to make it work, but it may have its challenges – challenges beyond the usual that any couple may experience. If you’re with a sign that is not part of your trine or your conflicting sign, then of course you know better than I if you’re compatible or not. This is a guide to Chinese astrology, but free will always prevails and you are the master of your destiny. I wish us all fruitful and fulfilling relationships that grow and flourish. If you’re still feeling unsure, I always will suggest having a reading done – each person is unique and so is each situation because there is so much more to love and life than just being compatible, but it’s a start. Thanks so much.

    I am a dragon and he is a tiger. I have read that our relationship will be intense and can be compatable Do you feel that we are comparable?

    Don’t forget that the Chinese calendar starts sometimes in February and the dates are different with western calendar! For instance I should be an ox but because I was born beginning January I fall under the sign of the rat.

    Interesting. I am sure there is much more to it as some of the people with my conflicting sign are very dear to me while a person of my trine sign acts as my enemy!

    In Chinese Astrology I am a boar/pig and my new wife is an Ox. We have known each other for 7 or 8 years. You do describe us pretty close like it says. I am an inventor and she is a librarian, so we are at opposite ends of the spectrum, correct?
