Cool, intuitive, but tenacious too. Your natural sense of adventure makes you flexible, powerful and patient. You do, though, need boundaries to thrive. Without them your life can get unmanageable. Your fluid nature can mean that people don’t immediately “get” you. You seem so very flexible, adaptable and laid back. And while this might well be true, there is a mysterious side to you that others do not always appreciate or understand.

Water has hidden depths. So that easy-going first impression, which you radiate, belies the truth. It is most likely that you have difficulty in communicating your long-term plans and deeper emotions.

Compared to the other eight Star signs:

I am interested to know the difference between Chinese Astrology and your I Ching Astrology. http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/183--i-am-interested-to-know-the-difference-between-chinese-astrology-and-your-i-ching-astrology http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/183--i-am-interested-to-know-the-difference-between-chinese-astrology-and-your-i-ching-astrology The most popular system of astrology today is commonly known as either Chinese Astrology or the 12 animals.  This system is actually some 1,000 years younger that the I Ching Astrology that I share with you.  

It uses a different new year – the lunar new year – and that is why the date is a movable feast between January and February based on the new moon.  

In I Ching Astrology the system is based on the year beginning on the first day of Spring which normally is 4th February annually.  

Chinese Astrology works in 12 year and monthly cycles whereas I Ching Astrology works in 9 year 9 month and 9 day cycles.

The two ought not to be inter-mingled.

A positive, public-spirited team player, your affinity with Mother Earth gives you a grounded, steady approach to life. You are shrewd and supportive, a source of strength and support to your family and friends. 

The powerful traits of the I Ching’s Mother Trigram are evident in your character: you are giving to the point of self-sacrifice, So it is vital, in a world where many are out for what they can get, that you make time for yourself so that your large supplies of compassion and kindness don’t run dry and mutate into resentment.

That aside, you are one of the most helpful, thoughtful, diplomatic and service-oriented of all the 9 stars. Your impulse to nurture is not restricted to your family and friends but to humanity as a whole. And to help you in your philanthropic endeavours, you have tremendous capacity for tact and diplomacy.

Whilst your tendency to fuss over detail might be an irritant for some, as they see you missing the bigger picture, this sharp focus makes you very pragmatic and reliable.

The 9 Stars and my Kua number. I am a little bit confused as to whether these Stars relate to what is sometimes known as Kua or a Gua. http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/182-the-9-stars-and-my-kua-number-i-am-a-little-bit-confused-as-to-whether-these-stars-relate-to-what-is-sometimes-known-as-kua-or-a-gua- http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/182-the-9-stars-and-my-kua-number-i-am-a-little-bit-confused-as-to-whether-these-stars-relate-to-what-is-sometimes-known-as-kua-or-a-gua- The term Kua or Gua literally means Trigram.  In Feng Shui this, rather like the I Ching Astrology that I use, is identified by your year of birth based on the new year beginning on 4th February annually.  The difference between this Kua and Gua approach and mine is that in I Ching Astrology no differentiation is made according to gender.  Using the Kua and the Gua then the Trigrams are opposite according to the gender.  

However, in the 9 Stars we take a deeper look at a) the horoscope and b) which House you occupy in any given year.

In some forms of astrology based around Feng Shui, the Kua or Gua is purely used for deciding a) the best entrance for your property b) which directions to sleep, work, cook or face that are more appropriate for your particular Kua.  It is actually quite a rigid system.

Strong, energetic, optimistic and powerful. Forthright, frank and honest, you can be prone to grandiosity and impatience, but your lively sense of humour and sensitive insightfulness always save the day.

You carry both the joy and responsibility of the awakening spirit of the Thunder Star. In I Ching Astrology, your symbolism has you marked as “the eldest son.” You have enormous energy and creativity. Yours is the soul of the pioneer. You are a groundbreaker. And every family needs one, although they might not always be quite so sure, as you will rarely heed anyone’s advice, You simply go for it and sort out the consequences later!

Your resilience and impulsive drive for independence can land you in hot water particularly early on in life.

I am confused about the different between Trigrams and the Stars? What’s the difference? http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/181-i-am-confused-about-the-different-between-trigrams-and-the-stars-whats-the-difference http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/181-i-am-confused-about-the-different-between-trigrams-and-the-stars-whats-the-difference The I Ching is made up of 8 Trigrams that have their symbolism based on the natural world.  In the I Ching astrology that I use, I include one more special Star around which all of these 8 Trigrams rotate - namely the centre which is often known as the Tai Chi.  Therefore, 8 of the Stars do link with the 8 Trigrams for the I Ching and this further one, which I call the 5 Tai Chi Star, is the one around which everything rotates.

What is the difference between ICA and western astrology? http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/144-what-is-the-difference-between-ica-and-western-astrology http://www.iching-astrology.com/faqs/31-about-i-ching-astrology/144-what-is-the-difference-between-ica-and-western-astrology Before dealing with the differences, it is important to note the similarities. Both systems are based on an ancient belief that we can know more about ourselves and how our lives and the lives of others will and can unfold by studying the universe that surrounds us and the effects it has on us. There are also connections between the two systems in the use of elements to characterise specific signs and there are correlations between I Ching Astrology's Birth, Inner and Outer Stars and western Astrology's Sun, Moon and Rising Sign.

Having said that I Ching Astrology is based on the 8 Trigrams of the classic Chinese text the I Ching, regarded as the oldest and most influential book in the world. Western Astrology is based on the movements of the planets through the twelve signs of the Zodiac according to the calendar year. I Ching Astrology uses a nine year cycle, which reduces to shorter rotations through nine month and nine day cycles. I Ching Astrology focuses more on the year of birth than the month of birth as the primary indicator of a person's astrological profile. The I Ching Astrology year starts on 4 February, which means if you are born between 1 January and 3 February you take on the Birth Star of the previous year.

Communicative, and occasionally fickle like your element, you really love a good chat. Your tenderness makes you a good friend as your impulsive nature is tempered by a natural, creative harmony. Common sense blends with your artistic nature.

As a 4 Wind Star, you are capable of wielding the most remarkable influence both close at hand and far and wide. The power of the wind is indisputable. You cannot argue with a hurricane. Yet there is a gentle, yielding side to this shapeless, formless element. Environmental factors can easily sway and change the wind’s course. And for you this symbolism means that your advice and opinions are much sought after, but at the very same time, the wisdom that you so rightly dispense can come under great strain and threat from the overbearing and dominant.

Always where the action is. You are sensitive to criticism. But your resilience means that you are never deterred from taking up a challenge and seeing it through to the end. Your enquiring mind and determined nature make you a natural leader.

Whether you like it or not you will always be at the hub of activity, the centre of attention. You are charismatic, a natural people-magnet. Whether in a family discussion or a meeting at work, you will always make your presence felt, and, if you're not careful, the focal point of any ensuing argument.

As a 5 T'ai Chi Star your central position in the I Ching Astrology constellation, you have a unique position of

Pioneering, original, straightforward, you are not afraid to take charge. Your level-headedness lets you take crises in your stride. Wise in matters both of the head and the heart, you inspire confidence and engender loyalty in your family, community and business dealings.

In I Ching Astrology, you are the archetypal “father” of the Star Family. Your authority is further strengthened by the symbolism of Heaven, which comes from your I Ching trigram. There are no 'ifs', 'buts' or 'maybes' in your make-up. People around you will always know where they stand with you. Your tendency to dominate and be inflexible is muted by an inclination to be very self-critical. But as a natural leader, and “father," you are acutely sensitive when others dare to point out your faults.

Charismatic with a spontaneous sense of fun and optimism, you are a polished performer. You have a free and independent nature, tempered with a deeper, reflective and spiritual nature. You are articulate and persuasive with a winning charm.

The best way to communicate is to listen, and this is your great strength. And what’s more you give others that reassuring sense of "being listened to".

The Lake Trigram in the I Ching is about reflecting and revealing change. So the more you develop your art of listening, the more ably you will be able to communicate your understanding in person or in writing - to a much wider audience. Because you are so brilliant at seeing the big picture, this is a real gift and appreciated by all who know you – or your written work.

Your 7 Lake Star represents the ‘youngest daughter’ in the archetypal I Ching family. This is a deceptively powerful role, because you draw strength from the reflective experiences of your elder siblings and parents.

Strong, capable and likely to achieve great prosperity, you are not afraid to speak your mind. You also have a contemplative side - a need for time on your own to restore the hidden strength you generously share with all.

Those who know you well will have discovered a hidden volcanic side to your mountainous nature. Your eruptions are never random but always directed against injustice – whether perpetrated on your friends, associates or society in general. In I Ching Astrology, the stable, strong and still mountain always conceals a hidden cave. And this quiet place of refuge gives a meditative aspect to your character. But, when provoked by prejudice or unfairness, you emerge from your retreat in a flash to right whatever wrongs you have perceived. Those that question the direction of your moral compass find fault in your self-righteousness.

Natural, active energy drives you to situations where your inspiring and passionate nature can effect positive change. Always in touch with what's new and interesting, you are proud, not so very practical, but you always see the bigger picture.

As your Star Sign proclaims, your true strength is lighting up the world for others so they can see more clearly. Yet this must be done with total recognition that you can burn yourself out all too easily. Fire can seem to burn erratically but when its energy is properly directed even the impossible seems possible. Where others struggle to see the path ahead, you can effortlessly illuminate it for them.

On a personal level your moods can change very quickly:
