The Chinese believe each animal sign is most compatible with signs that are four and eight years apart, and least compatible with the sign that is three, six, and nine years apart. Based on this concept, a circle can be drawn with all signs, locating the Triangle of Affinity and the Circle of Conflict. Find out which animal signs are compatible and least compatible with yours.

Zodiac Compatibility.

As you can see the zodiac compatibility picture above, the differences of ages in four, eight and twelve years apart put themselves into a Triangle of Affinity. Signs that form a triangle as shown in the zodiac compatibility make the best and most enduring unions.


The first triangle (see the blue triangle) is made up of the positive doers: the Rat, Monkey and Dragon. These three are the performance and progress-oriented signs. They are adept at handling matters with innovation and initiative. Short-tempered and restless when hindered or unoccupied, these three signs are ruled by ambition and dynamic energy. Self-starters, they will initiate action, clear their paths of hesitation and uncertainty and forge fearlessly ahead. They are the melting pot for ideas. They can appreciate each-other’s ways of thinking and possess a common modus operandi. These three signs team up beautifully.

The second triangle (see the red triangle) consists of the most steadfast and purposeful signs: the Snake, Rooster and Ox. Dutiful and dedicated fighters, these three strive to achieve great heights and conquered by their unfailing determination and constancy. They are the most intellectual signs of the cycle. They are fixed in their views and given to thought andd systematic planning. They give little credence to hearsay evidence and depend only on their own assessment of facts and figures. These people move slow but sure and they love to act independently. These three will invariably seek each other out and can intermingle and intermarry most successfully.

The third triangle (see the green triangle) is formed by the Horse, Dog and Tiger. These three seek to serve humanity, heighten communications and promote universal understanding. Being made for personal contact, they will develop solid bonds with their fellow human beings. Motivated by idealism, they are basically honest and open and relate very well to society. This trio acts more on impulse andd heed its inner conscience. Unorthodox at times, but always honourable in intent. They provide their own counsel and inspire other people to action by their aggressive and high-spirited personalities. Energetic, extrovert and defiant against injustice and adversity, they will get along fabulously.

The fourth and last triangle (see yellow triangle) is formed by the emotionally guided signs of the Sheep, Boar and the Rabbit. These three are mainly concerned ther senses and what they can appreciate with them. These people are intuitive, expressive, compassionate and eloquent in artistic and aesthetic ways. If compared to any other lunar signs, these three are more diplomatic and have calmer natures. Dependent on others for leadership and stimulation, they are very flexible because these people are sympatheticaly tuned in to the vibrations of their environment. These people are drawn toward beauty and the higher aspects of love. They usually excel in the finer arts. These three animals will share the same basic philosophies and provide each other with wonderful company.

Circle of Conflict.

Besides zodiac compatibility there is also a circle of conflict, that is where all animal signs are arranged in the circle according to their order and the signs directly opposite each other as ilustrated in the wheel above are in direct conflict and will make the most incompatible matches. Thus, we find that the Rat will encounter his biggest clashes with those who born in the year of the Horse as well as the other way around. The biggest clash of Dog will be the Dragon and vice versa. Signs that do not appear directly opposite each other and are not found together within the Triangles of Affinity of zodiac compatibility will be compatible in varying degrees.
