Chinese Astrology



Chinese astrology is an ancient system that incorporates elements of the lunar (yin) and solar (yang) calendars and the five elements (wood, water, fire, earth, and metal). Its most recognizable aspect is the Chinese zodiac, which features twelve animals on a twelve-year cycle. The system was developed as a way of describing our interaction with qi, or the ongoing flow of interconnected, self-arising, and self-resolving movement. Millions of people believe in the predictions of Chinese astrology and will base important decisions and relationships on the zodiac, but expert astrologers say it is not a prediction system; rather, it is a way to remember a path to your truest self. The goal is to actively co-design and co-create your destiny using astrology’s insights.
