Feng Shui

The actual translation of Feng Shui is wind-water and refers to a system which is used to help improve the life of an individual, family or group of people by manipulating the environment they live or work in using the attributes of certain elements and creatures to change the energy (chi) in certain ways and positions, in the environment to produce positive results.

Historically, Feng Shui was used to place tombs and palaces in an auspicious way, taking into account the placement with reference to bodies of water, points of the compass etc.

Chinese Zodiac  

The Chinese Zodiac is based on the year you are born not the month as in western astrology and the Chinese new year is based on the lunar calendar  so it can fall between the 20 and 25 of January meaning people born in January are usually the year before on the years below.
