One of the most frequent questions at my astrological consultations concerns fashion changes by East calendar. I successfully apply traditions of the western astrology for fashion forecasting. Nevertheless, it is possible to allocate general characteristics of a fashion by East calendar which are closely connected with symbolism of the owner of a year. It’s interesting to notice that such annual changes are most appreciable in the European fashion, but east traditions continue to keep surprising conservatism.
Here I suggest the astrological fashion forecast by East calendar. Following these recommendations, you can easily create original individual style at any time.
