Odd-numbered Signs/Trigrams (bse ru)

  • The odd-numberered signs, or "rhino-horns" (bse ru), corresponding to the natal years are generally held to comprise those of the ox, sheep, dog, dragon, mouse and pig, along with their respective trigrams: Khen, Khon, Khon, Kham, Gin and Gin.. See Part IV, pp. 000-000, where various traditions are compared. By contrast, when the natal months are calculated, the tiger, snake, monkey and pig, which represent the first-seasonal months, are also designated as odd-numbered signs.
