About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
In Eastern philosophy, spirit is known as Qi or chi, which is life force energy. The yin/yang symbol is the visual representation of Qi, which is the blending of heaven and Earth, male and female, fire and water, aggression and passivity, giving and receiving. One Yang and one Yin are called "Tao", which means "the way". Taoism is an ancient philosophy created by Lao Tse that teaches awareness of natural cosmic cycles and the blending of Yin and Yang, which results in balanced, harmonious living.
Applied to Chinese Astrology, Qi is the marriage of divine spirit with human personality. Each of the 12 animal archetypes is a mixture of positive and negative attributes. Positive traits such as loyalty, forgiveness, perseverance, and compassion reflect the alignment of personality with spirit (Qi). Negative traits such as bitterness, anger, jealousy, and possessiveness reflect a great separation between human personality and spiritual essence. In fact, author Shelly Wu says: "The greater the gulf between spirit and personality, the darker one's character."
Chinese Astrology - Exploring the Eastern Zodiac provides a comprehensive overview of the 12 archetypal temperaments embodied in the animal signs, and what they tell you about yourself and others. At the beginning of the book, Wu provides several pages of charts, so you can find your animal sign and element in a matter of seconds.Read more ›
