Jupiter's 12 years cycle and the Chinese Zodiac

Written on by Nacho in Astronomy basics

It may be just a chain of coincidences, but Jupiter takes 12 years in going around the Sun, and just once each 1000 years its position coincides with their corresponding 12 chinese solar months signs, the last time it matched was in the 20th century.

The Chinese Solar Months

Written on by Nacho in Chinese months

Although many people ignore it, Chinese Astrology has its equivalent to the Western Zodiac signs, which far from contradicting, do complement each other, forming a set of 24 alternating signs coinciding the most clear point of the chinese with the transition from one western sign to the next, and viceversa.

Astrology or Tarot?

Written on by Nacho in Life's cards

Often I am asked for short term predictions based on the Chinese natal chart of somebody, and the truth is that for specific situations that develop in a matter of weeks or months often is much more practical to do a series of tarot readings, maybe complementing it with a glimpse at the stronger astrological trends in the following months or years.
