Description

What does Chinese astrology have to say about the horse? This elegantly, stunningly illustrated combination of myth, folktale, and classic literature gives those with no prior knowledge of the subject a practical means of finding their own profile. Dip into a treasure trove of information that will help you determine your birth sign and interpret the significance of the horse in China. Always prized for their own sakes, and as tokens of wealth and strength, horses also symbolize the state's military readiness. Here are equines associated with different elements, with the positive and negative qualities, and associated planets: the charming water horse, for example is adaptable, communicative, and empathetic, but also inconsistent and restless. Throughout, ancient quotations from sages such as Lao Tzu present a range of views on this most important animal. Plus: the key to happiness for the sign of the horse and predictions for the sign!show more
