Can Chinese “Zodiac” symbols be on the cusp, like occidental ones? For instance, it’s possible for Virgo to be so close to Libra or Leo that the person has traits of both? I mean, could I be a fire-breathing rooster?

Thank you all for your kind thoughts.
I think the exiled Tibetans have turned there backs!

The Chinese have flooded the web with their views/miss information...still after many pages Dr Google still produced some information:

The Tibetan Calendar, Wood Iron Ox year

There are a number of special days marked in the Monastery calendar. These days are taken from the Tibetan calendar which is based on a lunar system with 360 days and 12 months, with an additional month added every 30 months to keep the calendar aligned with the seasons. The rules for calculating the details of the Tibetan calendar are very complicated, and are handed down from master to student in the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute which prepares a detailed astrological chart for each year.
>>>>>
There are twelve animals and five elements assigned to each year in a 60 year cycle called a Rab-byung. These are the Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Bird, Dog, Pig, Mouse, Ox and Tiger, and the elements are Fire, Earth, Iron, Water and Wood. In 2020 we are in the 34th year of the 17th Rab-byung, the year of the Iron Mouse. The next 60-year Rab-byung cycle begins in 2047 (western calendar) with the Fire Rabbit year. Months are numbered rather than named, but each are again ruled by animal signs, the first being the Dragon.

I have heard that Chinese business people, even officials (not nutty people) live by their given signs. An interesting note: Virgo and The Rooster are strikingly similar. And, remember, the two disciplines knew little or nothing of each other and those “castings” of traits developed a long, long time ago. Co-Winkie- dink? dunno

Some things just ARE, man...no s’plainin’...handshake
