This book offers an original and comprehensive guide to finding out what the future holds according to the ancient wisdom of the East, which is based on the lunar calendar and complements the solar-based astrology of the West. Which of the Twelve Earth Branches - the twelve animal signs - of the Chinese zodiac is your lunar sign? And how does the animal that hides in your heart influence your destiny?
You may be a sentimental but crafty Rat, a serious and dutiful Ox, or a captivating but unpredictable Tiger. Will you get along with the powerful and egocentric Dragon? Find out how your sign is affected by the five elements - metal, water, wood, fire and earth - and by the particular sign that rules the ascendant, or time of your birth.
Compatability and conflict are examined, as well as East-West combinations. Catch a glimpse of the future and understand the past in this updated edition.
