十二生肖 shí'èr shēngxiào 12 zodiacs


人们都知道,中国有12生肖,那么12生肖代表什么,是怎么来的呢?

Rénmen dōu zhīdào, zhōngguó yǒu 12 shēngxiào, nàme 12 shēngxiào dàibiǎo shénme, shì zěnme lái de ne?

Everyone knows that there are 12 zodiacs in China, so what are those 12 zodiacs represent, and how did they come from?

古代中国人通过观察天象,发现太阳和月亮一年要汇合12次,于是就用“子、丑chǒu、寅yín、卯mǎo、辰chén、巳、午、未wèi、申shēn、酉yǒu、戌、亥hài”带表12个月,后来又搭配12个动物来代表12年,这就是“子鼠,丑牛,寅虎,卯兔,辰龙,巳蛇,午马,未羊,申猴,酉鸡,戌狗,亥猪”,每12年再重新循环一次。

Gǔdài zhōngguó rén tōngguò guānchá tiānxiàng, fāxiàn tàiyang hé yuèliang yì nián yào huìhé 12 cì, yúshì jiù yòng “zǐ, chǒu, yín, mǎo, chén, sì, wǔ, wèi, shēn, yǒu, xū, hài” dàibiǎo 12 ge yuè, hòulái yòu dāpèi 12 ge dòngwu lái dài biǎo 12 nián, zhè jiùshì “zǐ shǔ, chǒu niú, yín hǔ, mǎo tù, chén lóng, sì shé, wǔ mǎ, wèi yáng, shēn hóu, yǒu jī, xū gǒu, hài zhū”, měi 12 nián zài chóngxīn xúnhuán yícì.

The ancient Chinese found out the sun and the moon converge 12 times during a year by observing the Astronomical phenomenon,so they use 子、丑chǒu、寅yín、卯mǎo、辰chén、巳、午、未wèi、申shēn、酉yǒu、戌、亥hài to represen 12 months, after then they matched 12 animals to represent 12 years. Those animals are Zi rat,Chou OX,Yin tiger,Mao rabbit,Chen dragon,Si snake,Wu horse,Wei goat,Shen monkey,You rooster,Xu dog,Hai pig。They circulate from the beginning every 12 years.

去年2020年是鼠年,在那一年出生的人都属鼠,这些动物按照顺序排列,鼠排在12生肖里的第一个,排在第二个的是牛,所以今年2021年就是牛年,出生在今年的孩子都属牛。当然,因为12年循环一次,所以如果你是2009年,或者1997年出生……以此类推只要差12岁都是属同一个生肖。

Qùnián 2020 nián shì shǔ nián, zài nà yì nián chūshēng de rén dōu shǔ shǔ, zhèxiē dòngwu ànzhào shùnxù páiliè, shǔ pái zài 12 shēngxiào lǐ de dì yīgè, pái zài dì èr gè de shì niú, suǒyǐ jīnnián 2021 nián jiùshì niú nián, chūshēng zài jīnnián de háizi dōu shǔ niú. Dāngrán, yīnwèi 12 nián xúnhuán yícì, suǒyǐ rúguǒ nǐ shì 2009nián, huòzhě 1997nián chūshēng……yǐ cǐ lèituī zhǐyào chà 12 suì dōu shì shǔ tóng yí ge shēngxiào.

Last year was the year of Zi rat, people was born in that year will all under the zodiac of rat. Those animals' positions are arranged by orders. the rat is the first in the 12 animals, the second is the ox, so this year is the year of the ox, and the kids born in this year will all under the zodiac of ox. Of cause, because one cycle is 12 years, so if you were born in 2009, or 1997 and so on, as long as the difference is 12 years old people will be under the same zodiac.

很多人相信同属一个生肖的人,他们的性格甚至命运有着很多共同点。比如,人们就常说,属牛的人大多诚实,有耐心,而且工作勤劳,负责,所以属牛的人比较容易得到别人的信任,但是他们的缺点是不太爱讲话,不爱沟通。他们的运气还跟他是几月份出生的牛也有关系,比如春夏出生的属牛人运气会非常好,因为那个时候有很多草,食物充足。

Hěnduō rén xiāngxìn tóngshǔ yíge shēngxiào de rén, tāmen de xìnggé shènzhì mìngyùn yǒuzhe hěnduō gòngtóng diǎn. Bǐrú, rénmen jiù cháng shuō, shǔ niú de rén dàduō chéngshí, yǒu nàixīn, érqiě gōngzuò qínláo, fùzé, suǒyǐ shǔ niú de rén bǐjiào róngyì dédào biérén de xìnrèn, dànshì tāmen de quēdiǎn shì bú tài ài jiǎnghuà, bú ài gōutōng. Tāmen de yùnqi hái gēn tā shì jǐ yuèfèn chūshēng de niú yěyǒu guānxi, bǐrú chūn xià chūshēng de shǔ niúrén yùnqi huì fēicháng hǎo, yīnwèi nàgè shíhòu yǒu hěnduō cǎo, shíwù chōngzú.

Many believe that if the people under the same zodiac, their personalities and even destiny will have a lot in common. For example, people always say, the person who under the zodiac of ox mostly is honest, patient, and diligent, responsible, so they are easy to get trust from others, but the shortcomings of them is that less talking, and less communication. Their luck also matters with which month they were born in. For example, if the person of ox was born in spring or summer who may have better luck, because there are enough grass, the food is plenty.

你属牛吗,你觉得以上说的对吗?当然这些只是传说,跟西方的星座差不多,信不信由你!

Nǐ shǔ niú ma, nǐ juéde yǐshàng shuō de duì ma? Dāngrán zhèxiē zhǐshì chuánshuō, gēn xīfāng de xīngzuò chàbuduō, xìn búxìn yóu nǐ!

Do you under the zodiac of ox, and do you think what says above is correct? Of cause, those are only the legend, is just similar as the western constellation. Believe it or not!
