Chinese Astrology Apology!

*****
I am a huge idiot for not checking sources more often.  I have been making Chinese Astrology art for some years now.  I thought, back in 2012, I had both the solar and lunar years right.  But, it seems I was wrong.  And, it really bothers me to learn this.

So, I am correcting this from now on.  The next artworks should be accurate.  The old ones…I may just need to trash and burn.  Well, the lunar year ones, anyway.   [IE Wood Sheep’s lunar picture shows 4713, and Fire Monkey is labeled 4714.]  The solar are fine.

Just to keep your heads on straight and as informed as me (and feel free to correct me if I am wrong)…

2017 solar /4717 lunar = Fire Rooster

2018/4718 = Earth Dog

2019/4719 = Earth Pig

2020/4720 = Metal Rat

2021/4721 = Metal Ox

Essentially, the years mirror each other with just the first two numbers differing.  AND I FIRST SEE THAT NOW!   Why didn’t anyone tell me when they saw my artworks?

Also, if you were interested…

The elements go in order of “destruction.”  This means two years of one element are followed by two of the next.  The order is:

Fire

Earth

Metal

Water

Wood

And, the basic order of animal years is:

Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig

[That much I knew.]
