The modern constellation Boötes lies across one of the quadrants symbolized by the The Azure Dragon of the East (東方青龍, Dōng Fāng Qīng Lóng), and Three Enclosures (三垣, Sān Yuán), that divide the sky in traditional Chinese uranography.

The name of the western constellation in modern Chinese is 牧夫座 (mù fū zuò), meaning "the shepherd constellation".
