The Chinese Horoscopes Guide to Relationships

Picture
Are you and your partner always quarreling, for no apparent reason? Could it be that one of you is a Dragon and the other a Dog?

If you were looking for a creative person to work for you, would it help to know their birth year? Someone born in the Year of the Monkey would be a strong choice.

Were you born in the Year of the Rooster? Maybe it's no surprise that your closest friends are an Ox and a Snake.

The Chinese Horoscopes Guide to Relationships is a fascinating guide to the secrets of the astrological system that has been practiced in China for years. By identifying the people in your life--business associates, family members, teachers, friends, lovers, and spouses--through their respective signs, you will gain valuable insight into their personalities and aptitudes, their quirks and proclivities. More important, you will discover how your own sign and its traits affect how you get along with others born under different signs. At long last, you will have the astrological explanations as to why you can be so compatible with one person yet so completely at odds with someone else.
