Overview

This is the Chinese astrology book you will keep on your desk! In the first section, you will learn about Zi Wei Dou Shu, or "emperor astrology," the best-kept secret for millenniums and formerly accessible only to royalty. The most accurate and profound divination tool ever discovered-a kind of Dewey decimal system of the universe-will help you identify your inborn capabilities, achievement potential, and life path.

You may be familiar with the Chinese birth year-animals, but did you know you actually have four of them?

Each year, each month, each day, and each two-hour period of the day are distinct and denoted by a combination of Chinese animal signs (branches) and one of the five Elements (stems). In the second section, you will learn how to forecast your love and life cycles; understand the indicators of health, wealth, and happiness in your chart; and identify balances and cures.

Finally, in the third section of this volume, you will learn about the Chinese astrological subspecialties, from the IChing, feng shui, and Chinese palmistry, to Face reading, 9 Star Ki, and what the combination of your western birth month and eastern birth year reveals.

The interactive CD-ROM included with the book makes it easy to create Chinese astrological charts for yourself, your friends, and family members.

This book has it all!

    Fascinating!

    The Zi Wei chart is like nothing I've ever seen - really cool! This book has given me a completely different perspective on myself and at least two of my relatives. My one cousin who has to fight with everyone has the 7 swords in his Destiny palace - no wonder! Well worth the price for this very different form of astrology.
