Astrology: A Unique
Synthesis of the World's Two Great Astrological Systems,
The Chinese and Western, by Suzanne White.
AWESOME! - I LOVE this book!!!! Every time
I pull it out, people are amazed at how uncannily
accurate it is! The only ones who do not seem to
agree are the ones the book depicts in a basically
overall negative light... which has not covered many
people in my encounters. I have had people read it
and rush to get their own copy. The thing I find so
uncanny is that this horoscope book is not limited
to 12 category of people... it covers 144 categories
and with accuracy.
Sun Signs PLUS! (Even MORE specific!) -
Instead of just covering Western Astrology and Sun
Signs pertaining to the time of year you were born,
this books ADDS Eastern Astrology in which it is the
YEAR you were born that determines your sign.
This book takes personality traits from BOTH
types of Astrology and COMBINES them to give you a
MORE ACCURATE personality trait!
Thus, two people of the same Sun Sign, who do
have slightly different personalities, because they
were born in different years, can be given their own
more specific Astrology "Sign".
It also explains how two people with different
Sun Signs are alike in some ways because they were
born in the same year.
If you are like me, and don't like the books with
too much hard to understand charts and technical
talk that reads like some mathematic algebra
formulas, you will appreciate this book, it is an
easy to read and understand for everyone book,
especially those of us that don't know how to draw
up "star charts" and such.
This book is a very simple way to find each
person's combination of signs, then read the
personality traits for that person.
Both Cat and Rabbit are right - Many
people complained that the book wrongly used the Cat
in place of the Rabbit, well you are all wrong, sort
of. The Chinese, Japanese and Korean have the Rabbit
as one of their 12 astrological animals, but the
Vietnamese, Cambodian and probably the Thai used the
Cat, not the Rabbit. Remember that Suzanne White
first became interested in Eastern astrology when
she first met a Vietnamese sage in Paris, France in
the seventies. So both the Cat and Rabbit are right.
The New Chinese
Astrology by Suzanne White.
CHINESE ASTROLOGY AS IT APPLIES TO REAL PEOPLE
- This book is one of Suzanne White's absolutely
best efforts at making us aware of who we are and
how we behave thanks to our Chinese signs. It's full
of anecdotes about real people who are Monkeys or
Horses or Pigs and who actually act like their
signs. There's no mumbo jumbo astro talk here. The
New Chinese Astrology is chockablock with
information - and it's fun to read. This book is a
permanent part of my self-help library. Get it
today. You won't be sorry you did.
The Best Book on Astrology Ever Written in
Human History! ...or at least I think so. And
some people say I'm awful smart. The book divides us
humans into twelve categories. Each category
corresponds to an animal. Then we are all divided
into five more categories. These are wood, fire,
earth, metal, and water. So all of humanity is
divided into sixty categories .If I can be serious
for a moment, which isn't easy sometimes, this is a
very good book for business and human relationships.
It is not the definitive book on business and human
relationships. It has to be used properly. In a
fashion to understand others and situations. Not to
judge, moralize, or condemn. I do think that Suzanne
White is the best astrologer alive. I think that I
have explored all the popular writers in the last
thirty years. The very best book on the subject, I
still believe, is Suzanne White's "The New
Astrology." That book and this book make a good team
if used with discretion. In this book, we are
entirely exposed to the subject of "Chinese"
Astrology. She gives a description of the twelve
animals. This is further divided into the sixty when
we add the elements. She gives a future outlook for
all animals up to the year 2008. The book is large.
Over 500 pages. This is mainly because of the range.
By this, I mean that one can use this text for fun
or for very serious matters. The range of this book
is what I think separates it from other Chinese
astrology books that I have seen. Some are "cute."
Some take themselves deadly serious. This book is
versatile. It's also a bit hard-hitting. The author
doesn't believe in pulling punches in regards to her
descriptions of personality types. Nor is she
careful in sparing our feelings in regards to our
relationships. She describes one relationship of
mine as a "catastrophe." It is this clarity and the
versatility which make this and "The New Astrology"
good fine texts for business and professional people
who simply don't want to get into "all that."
Namely, astrology. For those who believe that
astrology does indeed hold something that is
valuable and useful, but who don't want to examine
why, I can think of no other author who can help us.
Help us to get into the "real stuff" of the subject
while not getting our hands dirty with "the stars."
Buy this book and "The New Astrology." Don't tell
anybody that you do put any value on astrology. And
consult them when you feel that some insight is
necessary. Thank you and keep clean and do right.
My favorite - "If you want a real book on
Chinese Horoscopes, check something else out." I
did. In fact I checked out about 20 other books on
Chinese Astrology and none of them are as good as
this book. Although I have a couple which are more
detailed with charts and so on and are better for
understanding the technical aspects on Chinese
This book concentrates more on the character
description of the twelve animal signs. Suzanne
White has a very personal way of describing the
characters, but that makes it easier to identify to
it. Of course you could describe the signs very
impersonally, like a fortune cookie is written, but
then again she calls her book the NEW Chinese
Astrology which already indicates that it is somehow
different than other books. I find the personal way
of describing the characters actually more helpful.
You realize this more over the years. But despite of
that, this book is very accurate and Suzanne White
really knows Chinese Astrology. I also highly
recommend Suzanne White's book "The New Astrology"
which combines Eastern and Western Astrology.
Astrology: Forecast Your Future from Your
Chinese Horoscope, by Man-Ho Kwok, Joanne O'Brien, Clare
Great Book for Anyone Interested in Chinese
This book will take anyone through the process of
creating a horoscope in the Chinese Zodiac. No
outside information is needed - everything is in the
Amazingly accurate - I didn't really know
what to expect when I picked up this book, but I was
more than pleasantly surprised. Not only does it
provide you with all the information you want to
know about the twelve animal signs and animal
compatibility, but it also provides you with
additional more specific readings related to the
month and hour of your birth, your life's path
according to the sixty-year cycle, and other
interesting things like the "noble good fortune
stars", "yearly gods" and "career stars" (indicating
where your natural talent lies in terms of work). It
may seem a bit overwhelming with all the charts, but
if you patiently follow the instructions, which are
very clear, you can easily find the relevant
information and reading for your horoscope. I was
surprised how accurate my reading was.
A beautiful introduction to Eastern horoscopes
- This is a very attractive book that covers a lot
of ground in Chinese astrology. It's based on the
familiar twelve animals, of course, but it makes a
point of noting that the cycle actually continues
for 60 years rather than 12, with each animal being
linked in turn with one of the five Chinese
elements--you may know that you were born in the
Year of the Ram, but are you a Prosperous Ram, a
Lonely Ram or a Ram Respected by Others?
The book also includes information on your birth
hour, birth day and birth month (by the Chinese
lunar calendar)--there's information in here on how
your month interacts with your year, making Chinese
astrology more dynamic than it sometimes is
presented. Various combination of hour, month and
year give you such interesting sidelights as your
Career Star, your Animal Bone Fortune and your
There's not much about the theory or philosophy
behind Chinese astrology, which may be good or bad
depending on your point of view. I took off a star
from my rating because there are a couple of typos
in the charts that make them a bit confusing--you
can figure out what they're supposed to say, but
hopefully these will be caught in later editions.
Still, I recommend this book as a good introduction
to the subject, and an excellent gift choice.
