Wooden Balance

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are a “Tree.”

In Western astrology, you are a Libra.

You live with an air of sophistication and intelligence. However, you are a particular person and care about aesthetics, so much so that you can’t tolerate specific environments. Living with this degree of intensity can cause others to find you unapproachable. Additionally, people often refer to you as a “goody-goody.” While your aim to live in perfection is part of your beauty, it is also one of your most significant limitations. For example, if you possess something that you know someone else needs, you’ll give it to them. On the other hand, if you’re helplessly attracted to someone, you’ll likely put your pride first, which can limit your love life.

Your desire to take the right path can cause you to second guess yourself or make you hesitant to follow through with uncertain situations. For example, if you secure a business deal only to find out that the person you closed the deal with is potentially problematic, you’ll want to back out of it. Your standard is to move through life as cleanly as possible. At the same time, your pride can get in your way. Sometimes your ego causes you to shut down and hide your emotions, which can quickly drive people out of your life.

If you’ve studied astrology, you know that Western astrology classifies you as a Libra (or, to be more precise, your Sun sign is Libra). The characteristics of a Libra are elegance, balance, and ambition. The Four Pillars of Destiny in Chinese astrology indicate that your sign is the Chinese character for “Tree,” also known as the Chinese character “甲.” This sign represents the will to grow straight toward a goal. Once you set your sights on a plan, your destiny moves towards it without looking aside.

While Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination, they are alike in one way. The laws of the Eastern and Western worlds each determine the fate residing at the moment of your birth. Thus, you can interpret your destiny from both standpoints. Viewing these two interpretations side by side gives a more comprehensive view, showing how they complement each other to provide a three-dimensional understanding of astrology.

Your characteristics as a Libra combined with your nature as a Tree describe you as a “Wooden Balance.”
