Myanmar > Horoscope
Astrology remains very popular in Myanmar and everybody
knows their own signs for month, year, and especially day of
birth. Myanmar astrology is based on the day of the week ...
There are eight signs (the extra one is for Wednesdays) -
Mon, Tues, Weds AM, Weds PM, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun. A child’s
name and personality are based on birth sign. Each of the
eight day signs also corresponds to a cardinal point and at
temples one can go to pray at the point (north, north east,
south, south east, etc.) corresponding to one’s sign and at
other points depending on the advice of an astrologer.
The exact origins of the eight animals of Myanmar astrology
- the Garuda, Tiger, Lion, Elephant, Tuskless Elephant, Rat,
Guinea Pig and Dragon - remain a mystery. Nevertheless,
these animals are important in Myanmar astrology. They are
much more than general signposts to the day and to the
possible good or bad times ahead for us all. The eight
animals of the Myanmar astrology are considered to be a
reflection of the universe itself. Before you begin to cast
your Myanmar horoscope, check your day of birth. Why
not finding out which sign you are before coming to Myanmar
and surprise your local guide?!
