Review: The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes

User Review  - Fayren - Goodreads

Great reference book. It's very interesting because it combines the Eastern Lunar calenar with Western solar-based Astrology. Includes children; marriage combinations; ascendants and elements. Get Chinese Take-out; invite a bunch of friends over and get to know each other better. Read full review
