Chinese Love Horoscope and Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is celebrated in full force throughout the world, in any place where Chinese communities live.
The Chinese New Year festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar, and ends on the 15th day of the same lunar month. So Chinese New Year begins on a different Julian calendar day each year.
The biggest event of any Chinese New Year's Eve is a family dinner comparable to a major Christmas feast in the West.
America's most major Chinese New Year celebrations take place in New York and Honolulu. Throughout the rest of the world, Chinese New Year parties are most impressive in Singapore, Hong Kong, London and Sydney.

The chart shown below is a typical Chinese Love Horoscope chart. This chart is meant to indicate the level of compatibility between two people, based on their zodiac signs.
Signs of the Eastern Zodiac are based on birth years.
Signs of the Western Zodiac are based on birth months.
The basic scoring system goes like this:
A score of 1 indicates conflict.
A score of 2 indicates necessary compromise.
A score of 3 is a sign of sexual chemistry.
A score of 4 signifies a perfect match, also known as soul mates.
The compatibility chart is fun to look at, but not to be taken too seriously, of course. So don't go breaking up with your boyfriend over it.
