This is the only Chinese astrology book you'll ever need!
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 is distinct and denoted by a particular animal sign (branch) and one of the five elements (stems).
In The Definitive Book of Chinese Astrology, 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.
You will also discover Zi Wei Dou Shu, the best-kept astrological secret for millennia and formerly accessible only to royalty. The most accurate and profound divination tool ever discovered—a sort of Dewey decimal system of the universe—this system of astrology will help you identify your inborn capabilities, achievement potential, and life path.
Finally, you will learn about the Eastern astrological subspecialties, including the I-Ching, feng shui, 9 Star Ki, and Chinese palmistry.
The included interactive CD-Rom makes it easy to create Chinese astrological charts for yourself, your friends, and family members.

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.
