Soon, the streets of the great cities of the world with a high number of oriental population will celebrate the entrance of the new year 2022, which in their culture will be the Year of the Water Tiger. The tiger and lion dance show will shine, filling us with good wishes and hope, something very necessary at this time where we have been crushed by the pandemic. This event will show us once again how a culture that is closer to the West every day, has a different perception of measuring time,

Eastern thought understands that at birth the person will have to interact with an internal or external configuration that cannot be changed, such as the place where you were born, your parents, your grandparents, family customs, etc., often identified as destiny. . It also understands another configuration, where only the individual is the maker of his destiny or privilege to decide, a concept known as free will. Both configurations are subject to changes brought about by external factors, such as climate change, global political and economic situations, pandemics, etc.

These three forces are the ones that have motivated the search for information that could give guidelines at the time of decision making, formerly the most popular path was astrology.

Precisely, now more than ever, those who believe in astrology, either for fun or to collect as much information, and incidentally put into practice the principle of uncertainty, which suggests that when the human being suddenly acts on his context, it is able to promote new and fascinating possibilities.

Greek astrology is a science of human Nature, and can only exist through the union of Heaven and Earth; Eastern astrology, in the same way, seeks through the analysis of the different reactions of human beings to the different types of Qi present in the elements of nature, to outline the probable path of life and help shape our sense to live.

Today, in order to free limiting and predetermined concepts, society is looking for answers in forgotten drawers, in order to find the path of life, obtain better results in its projections and better handle the inevitable.
