Blending western and Chinese astrology into a whole adds layer upon layer of insight into character and compatibilities in a new book by Jill Carr – Astrolations. A monumental achievement which took ten years to compile it describes personality traits of each Sun sign with their Chinese counterpart – a blend of 144 combinations. A Leo born in a Pig year differs from a Leo Rat, with the Eastern sub-division into Water, Wood, Fire, Metal, Earth refining the interpretation further.
An example in point is Princess Catherine and Meghan Markle – both born in a Metal Rooster year. Meghan as a Leo Rooster is a force to be reckoned with, flamboyant, perfectionist, a tad self-righteous and over judgemental, likes to rule the roost with spouse. Whereas Kate is a Capricorn Rooster, so not as flashy, steadfast, a tireless workers, who sees life as a serious business.
King Charles a Scorpio Earth Rat is deep, intense, intuitive, a worrier. Camilla a Cancer Fire Pig is warm, generous, outgoing and emotional.
Prince William is a Cancer Water Dog – sensitive to over sensitive at times, good spouse material.
Prince Harry, a Virgo Wood Rat, likes to be busy, light-hearted, amiable and sociable, can be neurotic and petty.
There is a section on each Chinese sign as children as well.
A truly comprehensive run down on individual characteristics and how they operate as life partners, family members, friends and workmates. You won’t need to look any further.
