Editorial Reviews

Review

These Sky Charts seem fascinating, exotic, and powerful, and since nothing quite like this exists in popular Western literature... -- From Dell Horoscope Magazine July/2000

From the Publisher

This is the only book in the market which gives you a quite detailed analysis of all the subjects in Chinese astrology. The Chinese "Star of the King" astrology is the method most used by Chinese people when they want to read their astrology chart and which is rarely known in the West -- Chinese people rarely used the method of horoscope of the twelve animal signs as known in the western world.

Ri Lam's Encyclopedia Of Chinese Astrology provides an informative, engaging introduction to Chinese astrology including the Chinese Horoscope (the twelve animal signs of the Chinese zodiac); I Ching (the Chinese divinatory art for finding solutions to daily problems); Palmistry (the analysis of the patterns found on the human hand); Chinese Sky Chart (the art of Chinese "Star of the King" astrology); Feng Shui (the art of arranging homes and business facilities to create an ideal environment in which to live and prosper); Face Reading (the art of predicting fortunes by analyzing the different elements of the human face). The Encyclopedia Of Chinese Astrology is an important, valued, highly recommended addition to any personal, professional, or academic metaphysical studies collection.

Format: Paperback
Chinese sky chart (Zi wei dou shu) is practiced within Chinese community all over the world but is never mentioned in any Western literature, this is the only book in English which gives a clear and easy-to-understand analysis of this complicated technique. Buy it, if you want to know the authentic Chinese astrology method used by most Chinese people, it's amazing, not like the other methods you have heart of. The palmistry section is very detailed with many graphics to show you the lines of your hand. A very good book.

Format: Paperback
Chinese sky chart opened my eyes to the real Chinese astrology, this method is widely used by the Chinese and Vietnamese communities, but I have never read any English book about it, because there aren't any on the market until this one. There are so many and many Chinese astrology books talking about the Chinese horoscope of the 12 animal signs, it's time for a real one -- the Chinese sky chart. Bravo! The Chinese way of reading the face is also very special.

I have read numerous books on Chinese astrology and this is the best book. It is simple, straight forward, concise and yet comprehensive. I highly recommend it for anyone who has an interest in any aspects of Chinese astrology.
