Love blossoms strong on your secret tree of life; ANCIENT ART POINTS THE WAY TO HIDDEN FORCES THAT MAP OUT OUR CHARACTERS.

THE hectic pace of modern life, job insecurity and relationship problems have conspired to make every day more and more stressful.

Now, growing numbers of people in Ireland are turning to ancient Chinese philosophies for guidance in their lives.

The latest source of inspiration has come from trees, with many practitioners of Feng Shui supporting the idea that each one of us is defined by a tree - our qualities, likes, dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, even our style and looks.

Today, we have simplified the ancient theory to allow everyone to match themselves with a particular tree depending on their birthday.

Simply find which tree sign your birthday falls under. You will be surprised how accurate the findings are.
