Okay, I’ve hammered out all of the major details for a one day workshop on the basics of Chinese astrology (The Four Pillars). We will cover all of the essentials. It will be Saturday, March 1st, 2014 at The Holiday Inn Express & Suites, DFW/Grapevine in the Sonoma Room from 10am to 6pm with a one hour lunch break from noon to 1pm. I’ll also host a meet and greet that Friday night before (February 28th), from 7pm to 9pm at a nearby location (we will figure out the place for this closer to the workshop).
The Early Bird rate for the workshop is $59.99 now through February 15th, 2014. The regular cost is $79.99 for the workshop starting February 16th through the day of the workshop. If you come to the workshop without registering first and without contacting me, I cannot guarantee that you will be able to attend as space will be limited.
To ensure the very best workshop experience possible, be sure to contact me through the contact page to sign up for the workshop. You can pay for the workshop through the Services page above. Just select the Pay Now button and enter in the applicable amount and put in a note that it’s for the workshop. Leave me with good contact info in the notes as well and a phone number if you wish. If you wish to speak with me about the workshop, contact me through the Contact page with your number or email and I will we will set up a time to chat.
Also, I’m excited to announce that the first 5 attendees to arrive at the workshop will receive a free copy of Lily Chung’s Chinese Four Pillars introductory book titled: The Truth of Ups and Downs: Cosmic Inequality, a $16.95 value. This book has everything that you will need to get started.
Who is the workshop for? Anyone interested in learning more about themselves, their interactions with others and the world around them as well as their relationships with others. This system is a great addition to any other methods that you may already be working with and is a great tool to use along side Western astrological methods. All astrologers as well as the curious and metaphysically and spiritually inclined are welcome.
Here’s the date & location:

Main St. (State Spur 103). The Holiday Inn Express & Suites DFW/Grapevine is also just behind (South) of El Fenix, Spring Creek Barbeque and Olive Garden restaurants on the same side of Hwy 114.)
Directions: Coming from the East (Dallas) on Hwy 114, Take the S. Main St. exit in Grapevine and go south (left over the bridge). Take a right on Metroplace Dr. You will see Stacy Furniture ahead. Continue down the road until you see the Holiday Inn Express & Suites on the right.
Directions: Coming from the West on either Hwy 121 or 114 (they merge just west of S. Main St.) Take the S. Main St. exit in Grapevine and go south (take a right).

What we will cover:
- The 12 animals and their general meanings
- The 5 elements and their interactions and characteristics
- How the various animal signs (branches) interact, their combinations are especially important for compatibility between two people and relationships in general
- The basics of how to set up and read a Four Pillars chart
- The Luck Cycle & Seasonal/Yearly cycles. The cycle of 60 or sexagenary cycle
- The interactions of the stems (also for compatibility between two people). For example, with the Wood Horse, the Wood is Yang in polarity and it is the “stem” of the pillar
- Special stars, special pillars and if we have enough time, the void cycle or Cycle Theory.
- The ten gods (these are not “gods” but personality characteristics between the 5 elements and the yin/yang polarity)
This presentation will help you to get on your feet and give you an excellent head start in learning the Four Pillars and Chinese Metaphysics in general. This workshop may also lead to future advanced workshops on the Four Pillars among other methods.
Contact me through the contact page for more information on the workshop and to Sign up.
You may also Sign up and pay through the SignsInLife Chinese Astrology Four Pillars Meetup.com page.
In addition, you may want to bring your personal computer with your Four Pillars program loaded or a copy of either The Truth of Ups and Downs: Cosmic Inequality or The Path to Good Fortune: The Meng, both by Dr. Lily Chung. These books contain a westernized version of the Chinese Lunar calendar, which is what we will be using for the class, however these are not a requirement. The program that I am using at the present moment is The Imperial Astrologer in conjunction with Solar Fire Gold version 8.
