Question: About the animal aspects as personality indicators -- is this common knowledge in-game, as in:
Zhou Six-Pack: Wang? Who's Wang?
Lee Li: Oh, Wang's a total Monkey/Farmer
Zhou: Ugh. My brother's a Monkey. I've had about enough of Monkeys for this lifetime.
Lee: Good thing you married a Spider, then. --堡主冰玉 15:24, 8 April 2009 (EDT)
Answer: Well, Zhou Six-Pack and his brother are unlikely to even have cycle aspects. Some astrologers go so far as to define the term "Peasant" as anyone without a recognizable cycle aspect. So no, common people don't talk about that sort of thing so much, but those in the upper strata of society understand it better. Even so, it's not always clear which animal aspect affects someone unless they get examined by an astrologer or are strong enough in their personality and shticks to make it obvious. Even among those relatively in the know, lots of differing opinions abound. People differ as to whether it's smart or foolish to marry that Tiger-touched kid from the neighboring kingdom much as they disagree about other things as well. --Mjperson 16:11, 8 April 2009 (EDT)
