Marriage Combinations - The Horse HusbandHorse Husband and Rat Wife
He requires physical as well as mental freedom. She is levelheaded, industrious and affectionate. She will be content to stay in a close.knit family; he must constantly explore uncharted seas. She is resourceful and thrifty. He is adventurous, flirtatious and changeable. They will not see eye to eye on how things should be done because of the differences in their temperament. The Rat views the Horse as selfish and inconsiderate. He finds her too bossy and possessive. After careful appraisal, neither may find each other appealing enough to join forces permanently.
Not very good prospects for happy cohabitation here. He is too versatile, high-strung and outgoing for the organized, proper and dedicated Ox woman. He is always giddy with excitement and she is too sober to share his zest. He finds her very respectable but too undemonstrative and rigid. She feels she cannot depend on him because of his lighthearted and unpredictable moods. He finds her humorless and difficult to work or play with. Her man must be more disciplined and responsible. These two have very little in common.
There will be a spirit of unity between these two signs. They are bonded to each other by the same animated, lively and passionate outlook at life. He is captivated by her vivacious personality and she is greatly attracted to his colorful, vibrant and self-assured manners. Both are active, affable and appealing. The Horse can manage to keep the money coming in and the Tiger is at her best as his radiant and charming hostess. Since they share the same philosophy, they will gravitate toward the same goals. Much togetherness can be achieved in this marriage.
These two parties may not find accord in such a relation because of the differences in their personalities. He is annoyed by her detached, cautious and impeccable ways. She can be affectionate, inspired and very personable once he can reassure her that he is a dedicated and capable provider and family man. But he does not care to have her or anyone else anchor their hopes all on him, so off he goes in whatever direction he pleases. No doubt he will perform well but the tender Rabbit cannot stand uncertainty and insecurity. As a result, both will be discontented and unhappy.
Moderate rewarding partnership. He is versatile and ingenious while she is always enthusiastic about taking on new and exciting projects. If she is not engrossed in her own profession, the Dragon lady may want to transfer her idealistic views and objectives to her high-spirit, adventurous and equally outgoing spouse. He is perceptive enough to judge the chances for success in their venture, while she is persuasive and powerful enough to deal with his inconsistencies. They will both lead a brisk and roving life as neither are domestic enough to stay meekly at home.
An unlikely match. Both are mentally agile and realistic. But while he is mercurial and needs freedom and variety, she can be resistant to change and resentful of his rash and self-centered ways. She may be too determined, private and refined for his strong preferences, and in turn the Snake woman may not find the Horse appetites persistent enough to be worth her while. They both have to be very unselfish to make this marriage work.
Teamwork and cooperation are possible because they can work at similar speeds. It would be better if they were born in different seasons so as to provide more variety to their relationship. Both are passionate but independent and restless. Their witty, lively, materialistic and adventurous personalities may make life very hectic but does not guarantee that they will get anywhere unless one of them is skillful enough to control the other. They may not be able to build a solid foundation for a home, as they are both bored by routine and restrictions.
She is delicate, sensitive and kind-hearted. He is cheerful and practical enough to inject humor and purpose into her life. He can be easygoing with the gentle Sheep, who is compassionate enough to overlook his selfishness if he can liven up her moods and teach her the quickest route around her magnified problems. HE will be grateful for a please and warm home and will find the Sheep concerned enough about him to adjust her way of life to his inherent needs. Each will complement the other and this could be a very happy marriage indeed.
Both are adaptable and intelligent enough to leap over obstacles barring their progress. But their very similarities may breed mutual contempt. Because, just as he is practical and opportunistic, she can be equally unscrupulous. She is versatile and adroit and he may irritate her by his shrewd and mercurial movements. The Monkey is bright and beguiling while the Horse is equally witty and persuasive. They may end up trying to con each other into submission.
Incongruous but sometimes workable arrangement. He is witty and skillful while she may be frank, knowledgeable and zealous. He could start something magnificent and then dash off when he gets bored. The efficient Rooster will complain and no doubt criticize his lack of dedication, but she will sort out the details and finish the job. He is too high-spirited and detached to be really annoyed by her outspoken and faultfinding ways. He may not even stay around long enough for her to finish the lecture. He is the colorful and vigorous performer and she is the most capable of administrators. Neither is too sensitive to be greatly disturbed by the faults of the other if they find the union productive enough.
A lasting and cooperative math. Both are animated and demonstrative persons who can find real joy in their union. The Dog is loyal, honest and sincere enough to follow the Horse's excellent vibrations. She will be impressed by his intelligent, high-spirited and perceptive ways, while he loves her sense of humor, reason and logic. The Dog is realistic enough to understand and accept the Horse's shortcomings, while he will not take offence at her curt, observant and straightforward manner.
He is persuasive, magnetic and appealing and will be able to convince the compromising and good-natured Boar to concede to his wishes. She is kind-hearted and sociably inclined enough to enjoy activities with the gay Horse, but then again, she is a devoted soul and craves for more togetherness and affection than the self-centered horse can provide. He, on the other hand, is not amused when she is too conforming, and considerate enough to please everyone else besides him. Both may have some difficulty coming to terms with each other's weakness.
Marriage Combinations - The Sheep Husband
Sheep Husband and Rat Wife
Both are charming and capable of great warmth and tenderness but that is where the similarities end. The Rat is resourceful, inquisitive and hard-working. The Sheep husband is likely to take life too easy for his industrious spouse. She saves and treasures money, while he splurges and indulges his whims. She is alert, practical and levelheaded. He is creative but emotional and sometimes indolent. She can be fussy and faultfinding when irked. He finds her too shrewd and conniving to communicate with. There may not be a great deal of give and take in this union, since the partners have difficult understanding each other.
The Sheep is artistic and leisurely. He must savor and enjoy life as he pleases. The Ox lady is dutiful enough to keep house and take good care of her family, but she will not relish complying with his indulgent and impractical demands. He must be loved and appreciated to bring out the best in him. She expects order and discipline and will tend to be too commanding for the Sheep. She is resolute and uncompromising and feels she must make optimum use of her time and energy. He is artistic and must wait for the right mood to strike him. She is impatient and scornful of his soft ways and he is thoroughly adverse to regimentation and being pushed around. Drastic changes needed for both sides to cohabit peacefully.
The Sheep is a domestic soul and needs affection and understanding. The Tiger lady is temperamental and unconventional. He is easily hurt by her sudden bursts of fury and dramatic scenes. He is genteel and needs a quiet and comfortable home, while she is all for a fast life and cannot put up with his unhurried and worrying ways. She is too strong for his liking. He is too weak to handle her effectively. Both may end up displeased in this combination.
These two personalities may be compatible to a very high degree. If the astute and inscrutable suave Rabbit wife takes the lead, she can help the Sheep to perform great things with his inherent talents. The Rabbit is gentle enough for the sentimental and at, times, passive Sheep, but she is decisive and shrewd where he tends to be too generous or compassionate. She will provide him with the right environment to work well in and he will be grateful for her guidance and subtle way of steering him onto the right path. Both are sensitive to and solicitous of each other's moods. In this marriage they could accumulate more than just love and happiness.
Moderately workable arrangement. The Sheep could be fascinated by the Dragon's brilliance and dominant ways. She, on the other hand, could be drawn to his kindness, devotion and sincerity. On the darker side, the Sheep may be too timid to try out the Dragon's super ambitious undertakings and she may find him too reserved and unadventurous to meet her scale. He will be able to depend on her for encouragement, but she could push him beyond his level of endurance. A trying tie for both in this union.
Things will not be completely idyllic in this marriage, but it could work out if both sides make sincere efforts. Both of them are materialistic and receptive to beauty and refinement; these aspects could seal their union. However, the Sheep lacks the perseverance of the scheming Snake. She, on the other hand, could be too secretive and distrustful for the sensitive nature of the Sheep. She is calculating and guided by her wisdom where he is emotional and led by his artistic inclinations. They could disapprove of each other in some areas and succeed in others. The Snake's unfaltering determination could be a valuable asset for the Sheep to cling to.
He is domesticated and home-loving enough to provide a secure base for the restless Horse lady. On the other hand, she is happy and affable neough to complement his depressed moods. He may be jealous and possessive while she is independent and impulsive. But the Horse is not sensitive enought to take the Sheep's self-pitying ways too seriously. She is capable, delightful and quick at catching on to delicate signals. He could curb her freedom by providing her with enough variety and attractive options to stay and spice up his life. A strong and possibly enduring marriage.
The Sheep cares deeply for the welfare of his family, but in this combination the Sheep wife may turn out to be the stronger of the two. Both love luxury and dependency too much but they could succeed as a unit if they combine their strengths. He will assume responsibility when there is no one ekse around to do so, and she loves to b ethe power behind the scnes. Both are good homemakers nad compassionate enough to put up with each other's weak points. They should be careful about being too protective or indulgent with their children.
No deep or permanent attraction here, as the Monkey is too intricate and egotistical for the Sheep. He is more subdued in taste and action and her expertise and craftiness will upset and worry him. He cannot keep up with her inconsiderate demands no matter how good-natured and obliging he may be. She is clever and appealing and will lead him about once she discovers his weak points. He is creative, pure-minded and compassionate but these qualities will go unappreciated since the Monkey prefers someone more conniving and shrewd.
He is kind-hearted and considerate enough to make a sincere effort at anything. She loves to investigate, analyze and administer other people's lives. He is pessimistic and subjective; she is optimistic and objective. Her energetic and dauntless attitude could scare the sensitive and unobtrusive Sheep. He finds her too meticulous, argumentative and sharp for his taste. She, on the other hand, will say it is difficult to deal with one as sentimental and self-indulgent as he. They have vast similarities in their basic outlooks, which may prevent them from enduring each other's peculiarities easily.
This relationship will probably not work as the Dog is too realistic and will naturally criticize the Sheep's indulgence and enumerate his weaknesses, thus making him more pessimistic than ever. She is reasonable and affectionate enough, but not always willing to resort to the little whie lies necessary to placate his touchy feelings. He needs a lot of compassion and support to be able to put his best side forward. She is unsympathetic and hardy and can be irked by his complaining and self-gratification. Not much congeniality here as each tends to bring out the other's negative traits.
A sound marriage because of the objoius lack of friciton. Both do not mind making conessions and like to have their activities centered around their home. The Boar is gregarious and not as sensitive as the Sheep, who may take offence easily because of his reticent nature. She is less extravagant than he and could be more sociable and outgoing, therby reducing his shyness. On the other hand, he can make up for lack of refinement and is responsive to her ardent need for warmth and cooperation.
Marriage Combinations - The Monkey HusbandMonkey Husband and Rat Wife
These two partners will work most constructively together. She is a happy and competent homemaker, while he is the great strategist that she will be immensely proud of. The Rat could get the enchanting Monkey to settle down nicely and he will adore her industry and parsimony. They will be constantly discovering desirable qualities in each other, and their marriage will be rewarding, fulfilling and financially auspicious.
Both are egotistical and forceful to coexist happily. He is an extrovert, a natural showman. She is an introvert and reticent. No doubt both parties have excellent positive sides but they maya not have a chance to display them. He has an innate superiority complex and considers her dull and unimaginative. She may be blunt and proud and will no mince words when it comes to pointing out his flaws. They will both have to exercise great control over their basic urges to achieve any kind of rapport.
Not a very harmonious combination and these two may not find much happiness in their union. Both are allergic to restraints of any kind and will not like playing second fiddle to anyone. They are both apt to think only in terms of "I" and are goaded by strong ambition and self-esteem. The Tiger can be arrogant when not given her way and the Monkey is naturally cunning and suave in his undertakings. They could regard each other with doubts and secret reservations. One has to be more masterful in order to control the other. So there may always be a struggle as to who can do better.
He is a positive and innovative thinker and a captivating performer. She is very personal and well-mannered, although somewhat superficial. Both can be diplomatic and inscrutable about obtaining their objectives. The Monkey needs a lot of attention and compliments to keep him charming and companionable. The Rabbit is drawn toward quiet surroundings rather than active pursuits. He delights in controversy; she abhors dissent. They have totally different approaches toward life. In the end, both are realistic about their situation and will either adjust accordingly or seek a better solution.
One of the best matches, as they will both be able to harness their positive forces and achieve lasting unity and success together. Both are aware, aggressive and very ambitious. The Monkey is practical and crafty while the Dragon has more than enough willpower and energy for two. He will plan while she will set their goals higher each time. He loves challenges and she gives him great reassurance by standing behind him through thick and thin. Both will indulge each other, exchange ideas and work in harmony.
Both may tend to magnify the frailties of the opposite party. He is lively, outgoing and enterprising while she is persevering, ambitious and sophisticated. No doubt they are in the same big league but they cannot help challenging and at times opposing each other because of their natural jealousy and inborn suspicious inclinations. Both may have to be more sincere and straightforward before they can feel comfortable with each other.
Both partners in this union are versatile, flexible and outgoing. Whether or not they can coexist in a spirit of goodwill will rest largely on their efforts to control their self-centered personalities. Neither is long on endurance, and they will not persevere in working out their differences if one finds the other lagging behind. They are both independent and practical individuals who can cooperate well if they want to, as they possess the same quick mind and keen faculties.
The Sheep lady loves to play house but she may make too many demands on the wily Monkey. He may be flattered by her attentiveness but still finds her flaws outweighing her virtues. She, on the other hand, is no match for the calculating and evasive Monkey, who may not always take her seriously. The Sheep stands to lose more in this bargain, as the Monkey will exploit her kind and generous nature. Each is on a different wavelength in this union.
A combination that could be binding if envy does not get in the way. If they can think in terms of "we" instead of "I", they can achieve much together. No problem will be too great for them if they meet it in the true spirit of cooperation. Monkeys can rise above pettiness and jealousy if they learn to share the good with the bad. These two could live in harmony if they are willing to stick to each other and not blame each other in the face of adversity.
Both are ambitious and crave acclaim and recognition. These two materialistic and similarly powerful personalities may clash more often than they cooperate if they insist on maintaining their affections. The Monkey man likes to get things done with a minimum of fuss and supervision. He prides himself on his ingenuity and innate capabilities. The Rooster girl is efficient and fastidious. She's prone to looking over his shoulder and picking up on his imperfections. They try each other's patience and endurance. He cannot stand her questioning and love for argument. She finds him too sure of himself and conceited to pay her much mind, let alone heed the advice she readily dishes out. Both are going to find the ride pretty rough unless they are willing to admit to some of their inherent shortcomings and meet the other halfway.
A good marriage with the partners usually favorably disposed to each other. The Monkey is productive enough and generally smart and sociable. The Dog wife will be cooperative and congenial if he expresses genuine desire to work together. He is apt to be more materialistic and ambitious than she and will pleased if she does not try to overtake or outdo him in performance. She, on the other hand, is captivated by the Monkey's many-sided personality. He finds her a strong and refreshingly unpretentious ally and advisor. She loves his talents but could take a dim view of his envious and conniving traits; he may find her inspiring and fair-minded practices a bit restricting at times. Otherwise, both are well-balanced and intelligent enough to make necessary concessions.
They may be strong attraction for each in this combination, but the trials of everyday married life could wear it away. The Boar lady is prodding, energetic and staunchly devoted to her loved ones and her goals, but she operates more on blind faith, and in this case the Monkey cannot resist the urge to take advantage of her innocent nature. She, on the other hand, benefits from his financial acumen and guile but is not impressed by his unscrupulous and opportunistic ways. He fins her over conscientious about spreading goodwill about. He could also resent her extravagant generosity at his expense. Both may not need extra efforts to put up with one another's frailties.
