Westernized Flag Chart of the Chinese Zodiac & Wheel

This is the Westernized Chinese Zodiac Wheel.  Both the Eastern and Western Zodiac wheels fit into a similar 12 beat rhythm, yet set their tempo on the two most pronounced objects in heaven - the Sun and the Moon. The harmonious alignment between the Eastern and Western Zodiac is that both are divided into twelve tribes or signs.  Furthermore the points of change for the Western Zodiac follows a monthly lunar cycle  but is calibrated by the solar cycle.  On the other hand the Eastern Zodiac follows a yearly solar cycle but is calibrated to lunar cycle, more or less.

  1. Cool set. "Occidental", but still with an Eastern style.
