Publisher's Synopsis

The Chinese lunar calendar is the longest chronological record in history, dating from 2637 B.C. when the first cycle of the zodiac was introduced. One complete cycle takes 60 years and is made up of five simple cycles of 12 years each. The 78th cycle started on February 1984, and will end on February 2044. Twelve animals were assigned to each of the 12 years when, according to legend, the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to come to him before he departed from Earth.

Only twelve animals came to bid him farewell. As a reward he named a year after each one in the order that it arrived. First came the Rat, then the Ox, the Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar. Thus, we have the twelve animal signs of today. The animal ruling the year in which you were born exercises a profound influence on your life.

Discover which of the twelve animal signs you are and how the animal that hides in your heart influences your outlook on life and your relationships with others. Look to the future and learn how you are likely to fare in each of the years well into the millennium. Read the personality profiles of East and West combinations, as well as the chapter on the 144 marriage combinations to see the relationships between the twelve lunar signs.
