Chinese Astrology assigns 12 animals and one of the five elements whose predictions are defined on yearly basis. The concept is to balance the yin and yang. The 8th house in Chinese Astrology is ‘Assistant’s 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.

While the Assistant’s Palace ties into the Career Palace, it reveals a broader relationship with people. Confucian tradition describes a “web of dependence” in which people have a social responsibility to each other. The Assistant’s Palace helps to determine the significance of your Fate with friends, co-workers, and subordinates. This may reveal elements of your career through how much work you do behind the scenes to assist others. If that is the case, your life is oriented towards service.
