This stunning volume on Chinese astrology, made using traditional Chinese bookbinding techniques, is the perfect guide to your inner and outer life.
If you’re born in the Chinese year of the Rat, what are your characteristics? Who is the most compatible mate for someone born in the year of the Ox? And what are the worst flaws associated with your Chinese star sign? Chinese Astrology reveals all. This beautifully illustrated guide features easy-to-use instructions to help you understand the fundamental ideas of this astrological system and determine the more advanced aspects, from how your year of birth affects your personality to which elements are associated with your horoscope. Every page includes a newly commissioned artwork of a Chinese character, along with an explanation of its meaning and significance, from the 12 animals of the Zodiac and the 12 Earthly Branches to the five phases and 10 Heavenly Stems.
