 Chinese Calendar Survey.

This week we're looking at Chinese astrology. Does it work in modern and western society? Moreover, how many people are with their compatible partner? As I walked through Southport town centre interviewing people, very few of them know about Chinese astrology or got it mixed up with western astrology. This is due to their culture and lifestyle being so different to ours, so we have not been fully influenced by it. All Cultures have different ideas and styles of living, so does Chinese astrology fit in Britain? 

According to Chinese astrology you're compatible with someone four years younger or older than you. As you will notice in Figure 3 there is 4 couple out of 30 compatible according to Chinese astrology. This leads me to believe that in this case Chinese belief does not work in our western culture at present. You also see that the majority with partners, there is only a one-year gap. Is this to do with our western ways of living or just convenient? Next we're going to look at western astrology and other culture in following weeks. To find out what influences has different lifestyle have on the little seaside resort of Southport.
