Chinese astrology gives you a full view of how your life unfolds through different cycles over time; it describes conditions that may develop in your health; where it is best to live; when important events are likely to happen; what your best career choices are; what kind of money you can make; it answers questions about relationships, marriages, children, business, etc.
Chinese astrology leads into feng shui as it addresses the best environment to live in; the ideal conditions of your environment; how to make the necessary adjustments in your home and work place for your well-being, prosperity and happiness.
