Goddess Signs - Which one are you? Written by: Angelica Danton Review by: Cyann

Seeingrepparttar title, and readingrepparttar 122246 information about this book, I wanted to have high hopes as to its contents. There are so few good books combining Chinese Astrology with almost anything else. Alas, as often happens, I was let down.

The author does seem a good job of making ties between Chinese Astrology and goddesses, moon phases and planets, and some ofrepparttar 122247 herbs, at least onrepparttar 122248 surface, but like most books one can find involving this ancient tool, it is ill researched.

It errors just as many others before it, and many after I am sure, in stating that a persons Chinese Astrological sign is related torepparttar 122249 year in which they are born. This is incorrect. It does allow that a Chinese New Year does not start onrepparttar 122250 same day each year so that you must not look at onlyrepparttar 122251 year, butrepparttar 122252 full date of when you were born, if born nearrepparttar 122253 change ofrepparttar 122254 calendar year. It, however, leaves it at that, stating that this is how you find your Chinese Astrologic Sign.

Now anyone who has any real interest in Chinese Astrology is going to seerepparttar 122255 same errors I did in this. The Year is not your personal Chinese Astrological sign. That is a truthful as saying a person is just an Aquarius and following those little horoscopes you can find in most papers or online. Any good Astrologer will tell you to avoid those, and any good Chinese Astrologer will tell you to avoid usingrepparttar 122256 year as your sign.

To obtain your Chinese Astrological sign you need information similar to that which is required for other Astrological Charts. Your birth date, month, year, time, place, etc. This book, however, does not take any of that into account and only focuses, incorrectly, onrepparttar 122257 year.

Clocks, Seasons, and Cycles

Why should you follow astrology? How can people believe thatrepparttar planet Neptune is affecting our choices and actions here on earth? If it's been studied forever, then why can't they prove it? What benefit is there in knowing about horoscopes and whererepparttar 122245 planets are at any given time? How does it work? Why does it even matter?

I could answer your questions with vague concepts that don't mean anything to anyone, and say something like "The electroplasmodic waves ofrepparttar 122246 individual planets travel throughrepparttar 122247 quantum solar field to combine withrepparttar 122248 neurotelepsychic particles within our individual aura fields, thus causing psychoelectron pulses to begin effectingrepparttar 122249 synapses within our brains." But answers like that don't really mean anything to most of us and besides I made that up! The truth is that science has barely figured out howrepparttar 122250 moon affects us. We know that it movesrepparttar 122251 tides through it's gravitational pull. We know that women's menstrual cycles are often in alignment withrepparttar 122252 moon. We know thatrepparttar 122253 apparent waxing and waning ofrepparttar 122254 moon is really just shadows being cast upon it's surface. It isn't really disappearing and reappearing. We know that more babies are born on full moons then any other time inrepparttar 122255 lunar cycle. We know that lunacy isrepparttar 122256 weirdness that sometimes effects people duringrepparttar 122257 nights ofrepparttar 122258 full moon. But why? Why shouldrepparttar 122259 size of a shadow effect such things? Isn'trepparttar 122260 moonrepparttar 122261 same size and therefore haverepparttar 122262 same amount of magnetic gravitational pull no matter how much shadow covers it's face? Modern science knows a little bit about our relationship withrepparttar 122263 moon mostly through observation. Whenrepparttar 122264 astronauts walked around onrepparttar 122265 moon, they didn't find some magical reason for all of these lunar influences.

There was a time in ancient history when mankind thoughtrepparttar 122266 moon was a grandmother goddess that decided when women would be pregnant and when they would menstruate instead. If you asked them why they believed it or how didrepparttar 122267 moon regulate pregnancies and menstrual flows, you would have been told to observe it for yourself. It's no different thenrepparttar 122268 seasons and their continual cycle of birth and death. To arguerepparttar 122269 point would have been ridiculous. Of course Grandmother Moon is in charge of such things, look for yourself, silly! Mankind hasn't really gotten too much further along in his understand of such things. We put our focus and energy into studying other things, like medicine, weapons, and commerce. There's so many amazing mysteries to explore while we're on this planet, it's not really surprising to me that we still don't know very much aboutrepparttar 122270 magical workings of anything. We observe a lot and take notes to compare future events to past events in hopes of finding patterns and cycles that will somehow explain things or at least let us predict what's next. This is most apparent in our scientific study of weather, earthquakes, and volcanoes. The same holds true for astrology.

Astrologers have observedrepparttar 122271 planets movements and documented what effect those movements seem to have on humanity. They have discovered patterns. Why do those patterns exist? We don't honestly know. They have also found that asrepparttar 122272 planets line up in mathematical angles to one another, that too seems to consistently create certain predictable cause and effect scenarios. For someone to userepparttar 122273 planets to predictrepparttar 122274 future is a lot like saying, that whenrepparttar 122275 next full moon comes quite a few women will start menstruating. Why? Don't know, but it's true. Will every single woman who isn't pregnant start to menstruate? Of course not. Will every single pregnant woman deliver their baby on that moon? Of course not. But it's a reasonably accurate prediction to say that more women then usual will deliver babies and more women then usual will start menstruating. The art of astrology is a bit scientific observation and a bit psychic premonition. Of allrepparttar 122276 events that could be predicted, which one will hold true forrepparttar 122277 most people?
