The Basics of Astrology
Chinese astrology is brought to us as a legacy of age-old wisdom and invites us to develop an awareness of our inner potential. It is believed that the wise man is not subjected to stellar influences. However, we must gain the lucidity and the distance without which we remain locked up in an implacable destiny. According to the legend of the Circle of Animals, Buddha summoned all the animals to bid them farewell before he left our world. Only twelve species answered Buddha's call. They form the Chinese Zodiac and symbolize the twelve paths of wisdom that are still valid nowadays.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, natural phenomena can be classified into the Wu Xing, or the Five Phases, usually translated as five elements, five movements or five steps.
Wood feeds Fire, Fire creates Earth (ash), Earth bears Metal, Metal carries Water (as in a bucket or tap), Water nourishes Wood.
