There was a time when I thought astrology was a load of codswallop. And then, bewildered at a 50 page report on me printed out by a computer that didn’t know me from Adam, I started to study it. No, western astrology cannot foretell your future, but a detailed natal chart is too accurate to be mere coincidence. Chinese astrology, however, doesn’t attempt to tell the future. Rather, there’s another theory at work here.
It purports that chi – the life force – has cycles, just the way climate does. Sometimes its life force is fast, rapid in its pace, other times it moves more slowly. Sometimes it’s focused on the more artistic and a year later, it’s turned its attention to things more academic. Now if you were a baby, and you were born into a cycle that was about art, then you’d be artistic, and if you were born into a cycle which was more aggressive, then you would be more aggressive. When it comes to ‘telling the future,’ all it does is say something like, “Okay, you were born in a period when the arts and love were predominant and now you’re going into a year where the life force is a bit more aggressive. So you’re not going to be doing very well. But those people who were born in cycles compatible with that aggression, will thrive.”
I take it you know which animal you are. If not, google it. You’ll need your date of birth, but that’s about it!
