How Chinese Zodiac Signs Affect Women

ImagesZodiacSignsThis lecture will be given by Maija Rhee Devine on Feb. 6, 2018, 7:30 p.m., 2nd floor, Residents’ Lounge, Somerset Palace, Kwanghwamun, Seoul.  Here is the description of the power point presentation.

“Folk beliefs in the power of the Chinese zodiac signs to affect fortunes of human beings have flourished for millennia in Asian regions.  Even today, in Korea and elsewhere, in tandem with world-record-breaking scientific and technological advances, the zodiac myths exert power over men and women, and contribute to the creation of various societal phenomena, including the dramatically fluctuating birth rates, increased abortions of female fetuses in certain years, population imbalances, and popularity (or unpopularity) of persons of certain signs as marriage or business partners.  In China, Korea, and other Asian countries, such beliefs enable expanding commercial activities, such as fortune telling, match making, and shamanistic rituals. . . . the lecturer will discuss how Asian beliefs in Chinese zodiac signs continue to impact lives, particularly those of women.”

The lecturer’s talk on this topic can be listened to at:  KKFI FM 90.1, “Every Woman,” 8/05/2017, http://www.kkfi.org/program-episodes/chinese-zodiac-effects-womens-lives-today/
