Chinese Astrology: The Most Comprehensive Study of the Subject Ever Published in the English Languageby Derek Walters
A new revised edition of the first and most comprehensive study of this ancient system to be made available in the English language. The Chinese have practised astrology for many thousands of years and they compiled a systematic method of observing and interpreting the heavens long before contact had been made with the Western world. Derek Walters traces the history of Chinese astrology from its earliest records to the present and explains the principles on which the art is founded. He brings it to life by including a number of actual Chinese horoscopes from different periods and explains how the Tzu Wei system forms the basis for the latest computerized Chinese horoscopes. This new revised edition of a core work covers three aspects of Chinese astrology: - Its foundation in Chinese astronomical observation - Its historical development - The method of interpreting the portents.
