Well look at the positive side, your next husband might have a different zodiac and you can get that bead also Razz

Tee! Really! If I only had the energy, I better stick with the Dragon I have! He is a good Dragon. We are the most incompatible by the way, in terms of the Chinese Zodiak, my most compatible should be a horse who I married the first time! But just think, ten more husbands and I could have a bead for each one! My ex married a Rat who should not get along either, but they do! The four of us actually all get along really well which is strange in itself I guess.

oh no cats! you don't like the look of the dog on the bead? or is it the idea of being a dog? i'm a dog too and think it has a great meaning:

"This is the honest, friendly and sincere sign of the zodiac. People born under the Dog always seem to be ready for action and this quality brings respect from others around them. They can be brave and courageous and rarely withdraw from a commitment or betray a confidence. Their inner power and physical vigour makes them good people to have on a team. They are very loyal and reliable and in relationships settle with someone who supports them. They are devoted to the welfare of others and are often wonderful listeners. They can be very faithful to their partners and to others around them..."

Haha, how strange! My first was a horse....definitely not compatible, at all!! My second (like yours) is a Dragon and we get on very well (I am a Monkey). My children are Ox, Dog and Dragon. Mmmmm, that's not good, two Dragons....does that mean I only get four beads instead of five! Not fair No

I might get one and I am glad I already have enough beads, because this is getting too expensive. And then the Hong Kong beads are coming next. Anyone should be able to get their fill of Chinese beads.

I wonder whether these are heavy silver beads like the last set or if Trollbeads has made them hollow and lightweight like the other recent releases? I certainly don't want to pay the high price if they have.

Well, that probably explains why I'm happily married for almost 22 years now Razz !

@Silmaril wrote:@MMP, it's a 60 year cycle because the 12 aminals and the 5 elements cycle, so the fire-Horse conjunction is only every 60 years.
But isn't it the same time span inbetween for all other elements too? So i.e. 'Wood Horse' also every 60 years? Rolling Eyes

@ Naranja (and just because to mention ESKE again Drool ):
No, I don't have the Sleipnir pendant, but the small drum with the gods and Sleipnir on them, so yes, you're a bit right, I already have a horse Wink !

@MMP, yes each of the 60 element/animal combinations is of course equally rare, ours is just the worst, luckily our DHs did not know that!

TrollRose, you are a combination according to the calculation tabel for the Chinese Zodiac signs. If I enter your birthyear, date and the month, it answers that you are a Rooster/Phoenix

I just googled calculating Chinese dierenriemtekens berekenen and got this site as one of the hits.

http://www.gerardlenting.nl/chinese_astrologie/chinese_astrologie.html

I tried another site as well, but there it says only Rooster, and that you are an Earth sign...... so I'm not sure which site has got it right..... : confused

Well the site certainly didn't get the music right... It even woke up my dog! And it says I'm an ox, I always thought I was a rat. More research needed!

MMP and Silmaril, you can find much nicer descriptions of fire horses on the inet:

Personality HORSES


Occupying
the 7th position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Horse symbolizes such
character traits as strength, energy, and an outgoing nature. Extremely
animated, Horses thrive when they’re the center of attention. Always in
search of a good time, Horses keep the crowds happy with their humor and
their wit.
Horses are extremely intelligent so they’re able to
grasp new subjects with ease. They’re also capable of multi-tasking
however they don’t always finish what they start because they’re forever
chasing the next opportunity. Horses are honest, friendly and
open-minded. They’re perhaps a bit too centered on themselves and have
been known to throw tantrums when situations don’t go their way.
Fire Horses – Years 1906 and 1966

The fire is always burning
inside Fire Horses. They love living on the edge and are always ready
for change as change always is more interesting. They are incredibly
opinionated and one place you’ll never find Fire Horses is standing on
the fence.


Very Happy Very Happy
Most of my fire horse friends are happily married too !

Good point was made here, the quality of the chinese zodiac beads I hope they will be equal quality to the chinese silvers as if they are not I shall only get 2.

You're absolutely right DL! Embarassed It has to be 8 legs instead of 7.

Like most cultural lore, it is hard to take the characterizations seriously, although it is fun to contemplate how the prognostications square with personal reality. I will be getting a couple to represent my immediate family because of my heritage and how imbedded this lore is for me. Otherwise, I would try to see the beads in real life and decide, like with most other beads. As for not fitting the proscribed characterizations of the zodiac, we are Trollbead and artisan bead collectors after all. We don't go for ordinary mainstream jewelry and collect what pleases us!

The Chinese Zodiac is not the same as the traditional zodiac at all.

For myself, I have always loved the astrological lore and mysticism of fate, so these are very interesting to me.
