The Second Trine

The 12 signs of the Ming Shui (Circle of Animals) of the Chinese Zodiac are split into four groups of three animals each. These divisions are referred to as “trines.” Each trine contains animals that are not sequential in the Circle but are four years apart.

Purpose of Trines

The purpose of the trine is to help you understand what animals are compatible. The three animals selected are strongly co-related in terms of specific facets. As a result, you may easily compare and understand their compatibility in terms of such things as family matters, business associations, and personal relationships. The animals found in each Trine are perceived as being very alike in such aspects as personality, outlook, and mindset, to name a few.

Members of the Second Trine

The Second Trine consists of the following members:{#/wp-content/uploads/images/rooster.jpg}

  • Snake (She) – The directions for this animals are south and southeast
  • Rooster (Chi’) – The direction for this animal is west

Common Characteristics of The Second Trine Animals

The members of each Trine are linked by certain characteristics. The three animals of the Second Trine are frequently described positively as:

  • Hardworking
  • Tactful
  • Modest
  • Productive
  • Charitable
  • Reliable and stable
  • On time
  • Philosophical
  • Tolerant
  • Altruistic

These animals are perceived as having high moral standards. Yet, their very nature can result in certain negative characteristics. The Ox, Snake, and Rooster may all be accused of being:

  • Self-righteous
  • Vain
  • Critical
  • Stubborn
  • Critical
  • Bigoted
  • Trivial
  • Negative

General Differences of Second Trine Animals

While each member of this particular Trine may be considered very similar, their approaches may vary. The Rooster, for example, is naturally talented. He is a showman with remarkable candor. His focus is often on the trees and not the forest. The Snake is an organizer. He or she addresses things in an orderly fashion. The Ox, meanwhile, approaches matters in a slow but steadfast and sure manner.

How They Relate

{#/wp-content/uploads/images/snake.jpg}The commonality of patience results in their being attractive to those who share the quality or wish they did. In affairs of the heart, the Ox and the Rooster are a good combination. If the Snake and Ox align, the Ox will dominate. However, an Ox marrying an Ox is often best.

In social matters, the Ox and Rooster are very well-matched. The Snake and Ox, however, create a fascinating combination that does well to succeed socially and in business. This cannot be said about the Ox and Rooster. In business, as in love and social matters, two Oxes, two Snakes, and even two Roosters are best.

When it comes to children, Oxen demand their children to sit up and pay attention. Snakes will feign to do so and, therefore, do well. Oxen will do their best and Rooster children will continue to fascinate even Rooster parents.


The Ox, the Snake, and the Rooster are truly well-matched. They conquer life through patience and stamina. While all three of these animals are rigid, they are also intelligent, stable, and moral in their commitments. Through painstaking planning, this Trine carves its way through all aspects of life.
