I know Linda-Goodman never wrote stuff on Chinese Astrology(I doubt she even knew the basics such as the 12 year order).

But I've been digging into Chinese Astrology and learn more and more stuff.There's probably someone here who knows the Chinese Astrology beyond the Animal Signs.So I ask for your help.

One thing I learned was the 4 Pillars.

Here is my 4 Pillars.

From what I can interpret, the “Year of the Animal” Sign is merely just the general spirit of a person and like the Sun Sign in Western Astrology, it is over rated and over exaggerated in its importance by the general public, newspapers,and mainstream Chinese Horoscope books and pamphlets you can pick up in Walmart.Other aspects of the chart such as the Ascendant in Western Astrology and the True Animal in Chinese Astrology actually are more important than the “Year of the Animal” and the Sun Signs.

I may be wrong but I interpret the Aspects of the Four Pillars as being the equivalents of the following Western Astrology placements:

Year of the Animal=Sun Sign

Inner Animal=Moon Sign

True Animal=Rising Sign

Secret Animal=Midheaven

I may be wrong of course (I’m just a beginner in Chinese Astrology and actually know far more in Western Astrology >.<.) but thats how I interpret it.

Anyone here if you are familiar with Chinese Astrology, please come to this thread-I'm eager to learn more about this!

I like books by Malaysian author Lillian Too on this subject. Her books are easy read and the Chinese astrology book comes with good study cases.

Year pillar represents your parents - heavenly for father and earthly for mother.
By analysing the relationship nature between the elements (metal, wood, water,fire and earth) of year pillar and day pillar we could learn if your parents are supportive and well nurturing or else you are the one who nurtures them, if they are suppressing you etc. The same principle applies for the other pillars.

Dayly pillar - heavenly is you and earthly is your SO.

Hourly pillar - heavenly is your son and earthly shows your daughter.

This is all that I can remember on this subject. Will edit later.
