The new revised edition of a core work, this is the most comprehensive study of this fascinating subject to be made available in a Western Language.
The Chinese have practised Astrology for many thousands of years. They had compiled a systematic method of observing and interpreting the heavens long before contact had been made with the West. Derek Walters explains the principles of Chinese Astrology and traces its history from the earliest records to the present day. His accessible style brings this complex and intriguing subject to life and he includes a number of actual Chinese horoscopes from different periods. It covers three main aspects of Chinese astrology: its foundation in Chinese astronomical observation, its historical development, and the method of interpreting the portents.
"A beautifully written book that allows the reader to gain insight into the Chinese way of thought." Prediction.
