幫幫忙吧~一篇文章英翻中(必須是自己翻,不是翻譯機)

The Chinese calendar contains cycles of twelve years. A different animal represents each year. Unlike the Western Zodiac, each animal, or sign, has a complete set of characteristics. The trait of the animal that corresponds to the year you are born in are supposed to describe your personality.

The Chinese horoscope contains cycles of twelve years. A different animal represents each year. The first year of the cycle is the year of the rat. After that comes the tear of ox, the year of the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the goat, the monkey, the rooster, the dog and the pig. After the pig the cycle begins again.

No one actually knows why the Chinese named the years in honor of these animals but there are several interesting legends which explain the cycle of animals.

One story is that once, long ago, a Chinese King invited all the animals to his palace to celebrate the New Year. Only twelve animals accepted the invitation and came to the party. The first animal to arrive was the rat and the next was the ox. The other ten animals came soon after. To reward the animals, the King named a year for each animal.

Now many people say that if a person is born in the year of a certain animal he or she is like that animal. Find the year of your birth on the illustration and then read about the animal your year is named for. Don’t be angry if your year is a snake or a horse or a pig. In the Chinese horoscope all the animals are wise and important. No animal of the horoscope is considered dumb or ugly or evil. The Chinese symbols or characters in the center of the illustration mean “birth” and “alike.” They are pronounced “sheng” and “hsiao” in Chinese.

The Rat -- You are imaginative and charming. However, you get angry easily and can be very critical. You take advantage of every opportunity that comes along. You will do well as a photographer, a journalist, or a businessperson.

Update:

The Ox -- You are a natural leader and other people have confidence in you. You work well with your hands. Stop thinking that you are better than other people. Don’t always demand your own way. You will be successful as a surgeon, a general, or a hairdresser.

Update 2:

The Tiger -- You are sensitive and capable of great love. Sometimes you can be very stubborn if you think you are right about something. You will do well as an actor, explorer, or animal trainer.

Update 3:

The Rabbit -- You are a person people like to be with. You are loving and kind. Sometimes you are sentimental, but you are careful and will make a good social worker, diplomat, or nurse.

Update 4:

The Dragon -- You are very popular because of tour energy and enthusiasm. You are intelligent and like everything to be perfect. Sometimes you are too critical of other people. You will be a good computer programmer, businessperson, or politician.

Update 5:

The Snake -- You are wise and charming, romantic and intelligent. Try to be more generous with your money and keep your sense of humor about life. You will be good as a teacher, writer, or psychologist.

Update 6:

The Horse -- You are a very independent and hardworking person. You are intelligent, but you can also be selfish and conceited. You will do well as a scientist, poet, or engineer.

Update 7:

The Goat -- You can be an enjoyable companion after people get to know you, but you often make a bad first impression. You are elegant and artistic and love money and the things money can buy.

Update 8:

The Monkey -- You are very intelligent and quick. You are popular, but you must be careful not to use other people. You will do well at anything you try to do.

Update 9:

The Rooster -- You work hard and make decisions easily. You are a dreamer, love to dress in bright, fancy clothes owner, entertainer or tour guide.

Update 10:

    中國 / 東方人的日曆包涵每12年的循環

    每一種動物都代表每一年

    與西方的黃道帶 / 星座比較不同的是:每一種動物或是星座都有個別不同的個性

    每一種動物會依照你所出生的年份有時會形容或影響到你個個性

    中國 / 東方人的星座包涵每12年的循環

    每一種動物都代表每一年

    首先第一年是鼠,再來是牛,虎,兔,龍,蛇,馬,羊,猴,雞,狗,跟豬

    當豬結束之後這個循環又會從頭開始

    沒有人知道當初中國人 / 東方人為什麼要將這幾年用這些動物來做代表, 不過有一些有趣的傳說記載著這些動物們的循環來源

    其中一個故事是說,很久很久以前, 某個中國 / 東方國王邀請所有的動物到他的皇宮去慶祝新年, 但只有12種動物接受了這份邀請並參加了這個派對

    第一個到達皇宮會場的是老鼠, 再來是牛, 而剩下的10個也緊接著抵達

    為了獎賞這些動物們國王決定以牠們來命名每一年

    很多人會說某個人在某一年出生的會像那個特定的動物

    請依照圖解 / 說明找出你所屬的那一年並閱讀你所屬的動物由來

    別因為你屬於蛇,馬,或豬年而感到生氣

    在中國 / 東方的星座裡每一個動物都很重要也很有智慧

    沒有任何一種會被歸類於愚蠢, 醜陋, 或是邪惡的

    那些在正中央的中國字或標誌代表的是”出生”跟”肖像”

    它們的中文發音為”ㄕㄥ” 跟 ”ㄒㄧ ㄠ`”

    後面就是在蔣ps內的

    肖鼠的人

    富幽默感及敏銳的觀察力,行事積極,對工作或異性設想周到且細膩,其創見常令人激賞,具敏銳的觀察力。

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    肖牛的人

    富耐性,勤勉,與生俱來和善慈愛的心,向來是按部就班而踏實的走上人生路程,屬大器晚成者。因其處世過分認真,人生路途波折不少,然大狂瀾,大失敗也少,給他人的感覺是缺乏風趣,實際生活也不存有浪漫氣息。

    肖虎的人

    肖虎的人在社會上、政治上都多有權有勢,生來即具有威嚴、勇氣和冒險心,在生人面前絕不會膽怯,因其自尊心與自負心過強,往往不易接納他人的意見或勸說,人生浮沈異常激烈。

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    肖兔的人

    無論外貌或內心都溫柔有加,人品很好,禮貌周到,與生具有高雅氣質與處世謹慎的特性,不愛與人一爭長短,過著平穩安定的生活,即是其最大的幸福目標。往壞處看,他對人、事、物的心思過於細緻,若無法抑制其嫉妒心,就容易與人發生爭執.

    肖龍的人

    龍,象徵成功,肖龍的人自娘胎呱呱墜地上天即賦予好運,他具有偉大的理想與執著的信念,事事要求盡善盡美,是典型的完美主義者。長大後,仍會憧憬童年的美夢,追求浪漫生活,心底無時不燃燒著青春火焰,很容易犯獨斷獨行的毛病。

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    肖蛇的人

    蛇象徵智慧,名利、財富常垂手可得,是一位幸運者。肖蛇的人有一種無以名狀的神秘感,加上天資聰穎,天生就富有吸引人的魅力,其智慧與性的魅力也會造成反作用,給人的感覺是狡猾,因而也吃虧不少。

    2008-05-10 13:56:43 補充:

    肖馬的人

    天性富活力和朝氣,做事認真積極,個性自由奔放,富獨立自主性,平常喜愛熱鬧,用錢大方,卻不會為金錢的缺乏而反腦,其優點是做事積極,但有時因一時性急便半途而廢,處事缺乏耐性,該是其缺點。

    肖羊的人

    愛好和平,典型的我行我素者,性情柔和,處事平穩且富耐性,會悶不吭聲的自衛,一般說來,肖羊的人神經脆弱,不善處逆境,對事情和人生的看法亦趨悲觀頹喪,若有樂觀的人指導他處事,就能讓他發揮上述的優點,有『貴人相助』事業便可達到登峰造極之境地。

    肖猴的人

    機靈,口齒伶俐,風趣,開朗豁達,富有解決問題與隨遇而安的能力,尤其擅長交際、應酬,但不大守紀律,屬心直口快的人,因而給人有輕浮的印象。

    2008-05-10 13:57:05 補充:

    肖雞的人

    做事與為人循規蹈矩,嚴守紀律,遵守公司法定規章,絕不馬虎行事。這種人自負得很,喜愛豪華的場面,常把自己裝扮的神氣十足,其缺點即過於傲慢,對別人的言行要求嚴格,常強制別人做事,天生愛嘮叨,故在團體中缺乏人緣。

    肖狗的人

    對自己所尊敬或喜歡的人,可不顧一切地為他效命。是心地厚道者,一旦對朋友表明心意或有所承諾,絕不變卦。觀察力強,遇事頭腦清晰、冷靜、沈著應變。缺點及情緒起伏不定,經常發牢騷,有時生起氣就一發不可收拾,有時會莫名其妙的自我封閉或沈默不語。

    2008-05-10 13:57:08 補充:

    肖豬的人

    天真爛漫,人見人愛,做事乾脆俐落,只要開始行動即一氣呵成,也不畏縮,即使失敗,也因天性開朗而不覺難過,肖豬的人財運亨通,是任何生肖所不及的,其缺點是做事缺乏彈性,未搞清他人的意思便依己意行事,而往往招來失敗,為人太好,易被人欺負。
