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.
