This is an illustrated guide to the Chinese horoscope and how to use it. The 12 signs of the Chinese horoscope introduced and explained; find out which signs you are compatible with and which you should avoid. Increase your understanding of your partner, friends and family as their sign's characteristics reveal themselves. You can learn how the year you were born influences your personality, ambitions, relationships and life choices. The system of Chinese horoscopes has been in use for thousands of years, and there was a time when no Chinese person would contemplate changing their job or getting married without consulting their astrologer. We may no longer run our lives this way, but there is much that we can learn about ourselves from this ancient Eastern astrological system. The Chinese horoscope is made up of 12 animal signs but while most people know which sign they are, the system is more complex than that. You also need to know which of the five elements you are: fire, earth, water, metal or wood, and whether you are yin or yang. This accessible book guides you through finding your own particular sign and how it influences your personality, family, love life and future choices.
