About This Book

The Chinese state had adopted the Art of Scheduling and Positioning as Imperial orthodoxy for centuries before the 1911 collapse of imperial China. It was believed that the universe communicated its assessment of the Emperor's performance through astral and terrestrial portents - portents that only masters in the Art of Scheduling and Positioning could interpret. Today, feng shui (the art of positioning) and Chinese astrology (the science of auspicious scheduling) have captured the popular imagination, but in the process those classical disciplines have been diluted sometimes beyond recognition. Now an accomplished scholar of Chinese language, literature and philosophy restores them in this first and only authentic translation of the original Chinese treatise on the Art of Scheduling and Positioning. This Imperial Guide reveals the organic connection between feng shui and astrology; illuminates the most complex aspects of feng shui and astrology theory in accessible language and lucid imagery; introduces essential concepts of Chinese cosmology and explains how they relate to the whole of traditional Chinese thought, and what they mean for the modern world.
