I have been fascinated recently with some of the various systems of Chinese Astrology.

In particular, the 28 lunar mansions...

Is there anyone here who has studied this system?

If so, then please share :)

Here is a very informative article about the 28 lunar mansions...

And here is a list of several lunar mansion calculator programs (there are many more than these if you google)...

There is also a parallel with the Nakshatra teachings of India...

Note that the 28th house in the Nakshatra teachings is sometimes ignored and sometimes recognized. This is because - as all of us know - that the moon cycle is 27.3 days.

The Chinese system gives more weight to the .3 time period at the end of the cycle than the Indian system does.
