Many customs and traditions of ancient China are still being observed in Hawai'i today. One of the most popular ancient Chinese arts that has survived since the arrival of Chinese Laborers in the early 1800's, is Chinese astrology. For years astrology has been influential in the everyday lives of the Chinese. Although today it no longer plays a major role in the daily lives of Chinese, astrology still absorbs the interest of many people not only in Hawai'i, but all over the world.
The history of Chinese astrology can be traced back more than 4,000 years ago in China when Emperor Yao commanded court astronomers to calculate a calendar so people would know when to plant and sow. Then it was not until nearly 2,000 years later during the Tang dynasty (AD 618-907) that astrology started to gain popularity when the Emperor ordered respected officials at the Imperial Court to construct a Chinese almanac or Tung Shu, which is still produced every year. The almanac lists auspicious days to open a business, marry, embark on a long journey or make other personal decisions.
