Aries of the Ocean

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are the a “Ocean.”

In Western astrology, you are an Aries.

Generosity is one of your greatest strengths. You naturally give of yourself to help others. However, you don’t always admire this trait within yourself. There are times you’d rather be popular or better at your job, yet at the end of the day, your destiny paves a path for your kindness to flourish.

If you’ve studied astrology, you know that Western astrology classifies you as an Aries (or, to be more precise, your Sun sign is Aries). The characteristics of Aries are power, ambition, determination, and strength. The Four Pillars of Destiny in Chinese astrology indicate that your sign is the Chinese character for “Ocean,” also known as the Chinese character “壬.” This sign portrays the quality of flexibility, like the ebb and flow of the ocean. It gives you the grace to adapt to any container or environment, making you good with people, sensitive to trends, and quick to process information.

While Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination, they are alike in one way. The laws of the Eastern and Western worlds each determine the fate residing at the moment of your birth. Thus, you can interpret your destiny from both standpoints. Viewing these two interpretations side by side gives a more comprehensive view, showing how they complement each other to provide a three-dimensional understanding of astrology.

Your Aries characteristics combined with your nature as an Sea describe you as a “Aries of the Ocean.” Imagine yourself as a ram among a flock of rams, and together you’re all crossing the vast ocean. You’re on a journey in search of an unknown world that lies beyond the horizon. Throughout this journey, you’ll discover that your generosity is expansive, and because of this, people, money, and information gravitate to you. Yet, you have the willpower to take it all in and create flow and structure from whatever comes your way.
