Chinese Astrology

In Chinese Astrology assigns 12 Animals and one of the five elements whose predictions are defined as yearly basis. The concept is to balance the yin and yang. The fifth house in Chinese Astrology is ‘Wealth Palace’ and is centralized on one’s Primary Fate and Destiny which is predestined, which means these are the responsibilities which will limit your freedom.

How we view “wealth” today is dramatically different from how it was interpreted in ancient China, where agricultural cycles determined the cycles of natural wealth. Therefore, “wealth” is more than financial security. Still, this house can predict if you will be paid appropriately for your work efforts, and even the directness of your income. However, the disconnect between the original purposes of this House and our modern association of wealth with income makes interpretations of the Wealth Palace modest. This House is ready with the Property Palace to reveal one’s overall prosperity.
