The Origin Story of the Zodiac
The origins of the Japanese Zodiac beliefs are derived from the Chinese concept of the zodiac and the adoption of the twelve-year cycle.
A long, long time ago God decided to gather 12 animals in order to create the zodiac.
He asked the animals to meet on January 1st letting them know that the selection would be in accordance with the order in which they were arriving.
During the talk, the cat was late and asked the mouse what was going on.
The mouse replied that the animals were going to meet on January 2nd for the selection of the animals of the zodiac.
When the date arrived, the animals began to move for the meeting, of all the animals the cow was the slowest of all, so he decided to get up very early to start the road and arrive on time. The mouse took advantage of the fact that the cow left early and climbed on the back of the cow, upon arriving in front of the God who had summoned them, the mouse jumped from the cow's back to be the first animal to arrive.
Then came the cow, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep, the monkey, the rooster, the dog and finally the wild pig.
When the cat arrived, he realized that he had been deceived by the mouse and that is how he began to chase the mouse to this day swearing that he would never forgive the mouse for his deceit.
