  1. Hi Susan.. thank you for your astro info. I’ve been reading astrology all these years and finding bits and pieces. I’ve realised that the hours is quite accurate according to my experiences. Your information really gave me the whole scopes of whats happening and my understanding about astrology so far.

    • Dear Hai,
      Thank you for your kind letter. Yes, the hour is interesting how it expresses the energy, especially yang hours like Dragon and Horse. Note that in your 4-Pillars birth chart, your birth hour is how you are in old age, the destination of life energy, and how to best express it.
      Good luck,
