Year of the Snake (2013) Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui Guide
Certain helpful, logical and practical Chinese customs, organizational principles and beliefs about life improvement are recommended. Advancing your understandings of 5 topics joined by 5 common elements enables you to achieve enlightenment across 5 interlinked key areas during Yin Black Water Snake Year 2013-14.
1. The Chinese Zodiac
China considers the Snake and Water (2013 Year Animal and Element respectively) surprisingly differently from the West. Forget 'all years are the same' notions in favor of China's conviction that all differ significantly in ever-repeating cycles of 60.
The Chinese Zodiac's 6th Snake Sign's distinctive qualities are explored and the fortunes of those born under all 12 signs during the period are considered with the 5 Elements' influences.
2. The 5 Elements/ 'Wuxing'
Relating forecasts and horoscopes of all Chinese Zodiac Signs for the period to the 'Wuxing' enables their overview. Better acquaintance with Chinese 5 Element/ 'Wuxing' Theory enhances your understanding of Feng Shui, Chinese Astrology, Qigong and much more of Chinese culture than you first expect.
3. 5 Elements Feng Shui
Exploration of the 'art of placement's Wealth links to Water, Snake Year (2013-14.) Year Element leads to Feng Shui 'Wealth Enhancers' like the Chan Chu's use and topical Feng Shui advice for the period.
4. 5 Elements Qigong
This eBook's insights and straightforward practical instructions encourage readers to pursue the many benefits of Qigong. A popular Chinese anti-aging, health, longevity and youthfulness-bringing Art, Qigong utilizes the same 5 Elements to achieve these ends and 5 Elements Qigong's many advantages are presented.
5. Chinese New Year
The 5 Elements and the Animals exert surprising influences upon events at this time. Insights into Festival customs and traditions of this world-wide event include explanation of how its changing dates are determined with insights into the celebration.
Fire, Earth, Water, Metal and Wood, the 5 Elements or 'Wuxing' link all the above areas together. Their influences change with their Yin/ Yang modes modulating the essential nature of the predominant Year Animal (and the year's nature) in continuously repeating cycles.
As China and the East view both Dragon and Snake very differently from western 'wicked serpent' biblical stereotypes, fundamental 'mind-set,' re-orientation may follow reading this eBook. Subtle changes in the Water Year Element influence Yang Water Dragon's replacement by Yin Water Snake Year on 10th Feb 2013. This will affect events, circumstances and individuals according to the Snake Sign's specific attributes and those of their birth year Animal and Element.
Year of the Snake (2013) Chinese Astrology & Feng Shui Guide' (1) contributes to the West's growing fund of knowledge about these associated Chinese beliefs and customs. Improved happiness, health and fortune via closer 'attunement' to each Year's energies are traditionally associated with their practical pursuit.
