Chinese Astrology

When most people think of Chinese astrology, they think of the twelve animals commonly printed on restaurant menus. In actuality, Chinese astrology is vastly more complicated than this. Chinese Astrology is based on ancient Chinese cosmology and Five Elements Theory.

Each individualized chart is a life reading that gives insight into a person’s past, present, and future. The Chinese name for astrology is Ming Li 命理 – the principle of your life or karma.

Through a the chart, one can obtain guidance about health, career, and relationships and more. By understanding the energies of the Universe at the moment of one’s birth, we can understand how best to support the life patterns of each individual.
