"Astrology and the Book of Changes (or I Ching) share a common source in the ageless traditions of ancient Chinese wisdom. In combination, by plotting the celestial influences at an individual's birth and the passing of time, they offer nothing less than a total guide to daily affairs and action, This fascinating book, translated and adapted from a classical Chinese manuscript, explains the underlying philosophies, the meaning of 'auspiciousness', methods of computation and means of ensuring marital compatibility, At its heart is a full set of line-by-line natal, yearly and daily predictions for the 64 hexagrams. None of them, of course, determines our behaviour as free agents, yet they provide a rich framework for reflection. Anyone seeking the help of Eastern spirituality as they confront major life decisions could do no better than start here. The linking of astrology and the I Ching; is said to have occurred in the eleventh century AD. Now, some thousands of years later, the essence of that metaphysical union is given to the West in this important work".
