Wo Shen Ti Hao Ma`!~ Ever tried to know what your Chinese Zodiac is and what it means? Would you want to know what 2015 has for you, well then stick around to find out.
First of all, 2015 is the year of the sheep. And if you didn’t know in China there was an ancient myth that tells how the world began. The myth first starts off as the universe being a soupy mush, until a sleeping god shaped as an egg woke up after a million years. He then saw that everything was black and slimy therefore this made him feel uncomfortable. So of course he cracked his egg-like resting place so that the goo inside became the seven continents of the world. While the eggshell became the heavens,to keep this balanced the god helped keep this place in tact by holding everything together. Then he became the Earth (air=breath,hair=stars,eyes=sun and moon,blood=water,veins=mountains and rivers,sweat=rain and dew).
Shortly, after people have been created they had no track of time. To their demise the gods decided to help them by creating a twelve month in a year system in which each and every year represented a certain type of animals for twelve years straight. Then the process starts back all over again, the animals that were chosen in chronological order; is the Rat, Ox (cow), Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and the Pig.
Now that you know how the world began would you want to know how you began in this upcoming year?
