The Vietnamese Zodiac

The Vietnamese 12 zodiac animals I order are:Rat, Buffalo, Tiger, Cat, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

The Vietnamese zodiac resembles the Chinese zodiac except that the second animal is the Buffalo instead of the Ox, and the fourth animal is the Cat instead of the Rabbit. It was believed that the Chinese word for 'rabbit' '卯兔' (mǎo tù) sounded like 'meo' in Vietnamese, which means 'cat'. So it might have been a mistake that occurred during the process of cultural transition.

The Burmese Zodiac

Different from the Chinese zodiac, the Burmese zodiac only has eight zodiac signs based on the eight directions: North, South, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest.

The system of astrology was also rooted in the days of a week. Wednesday was split into two parts: Wednesday morning (00:01 to 12:00) and Wednesday afternoon (12:01 to 24:00). Therefore, there are a total of eight zodiac signs according to the days of the week: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday am, Wednesday pm, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Each sign is associated with an animal. The eight animals are Garuda (mythical bird), Tiger, Lion, Elephant (with tusks), Elephant (no tusks), Rat, Guinea Pig, and Dragon.

To determine your Burmese zodiac animal sign and ruling direction, all you need is the day of the week you were born on.
