The Chinese horoscope holds the key to a better understanding of self and others, and to living a life of harmony.

Not just the year of birth, but also the month, day and hour have significance in true Chinese astrology. Master Zhongxian Wu explains how to find your power animal symbols, and how to learn from their wisdom. By fully understanding what each animal signifies, and how they relate to the major hexagrams of the Yijing, he shows that they can help you to find inner peace and live in harmony with family, friends, the wider community, and with nature. Using the wisdom of the twelve animal symbols as a guide, you will learn how to better understand your personality, and make choices that profoundly influence your health, relationships, career, and finances, allowing you to live up to your greatest potential.

Making the wisdom of the twelve Chinese animals accessible to the Western reader for the first time in its relationship with the Yijing, this book will be an illuminating read for anyone interested in understanding themselves and their life patterns better, Chinese astrology, and the Yijing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For many American readers, contact with the 12 totem animals of the Chinese zodiac is limited to a brief and superficial entry on a place mat, but there is naturally much more to this ancient tradition than that. Wu (Seeking the Spirit of the Book of Change), a teacher of Qigong, has written a brief but effective treatment of the animal symbols of the zodiac in the Chinese system, outlining their relationship to the hexagrams of the I Ching. Wu's book is richly illustrated, includes ceremonies for each symbol, and offers guides to finding your own symbol (it's more complex than you thought). VERDICT This work will fill an important gap on many library shelves, as well as in the understanding of readers curious about Asian religions and self-knowledge.
