should i study Chinese astrology

I have recently joined a club and i have been offered the option to either study a general astrological course of a specific one about chinese astrology. Could someone maybe tell me the pros and cons of both?

What did they say was going to be a part of the general astrological course? They gave you a primer?

Chinese Astrology (I'm not sure of the level that they are offering) is rare in the western world. You could much more easily get knowledge/learning/training in more places for the former ( the general one - depending on what is meant by that word) than the latter. Hence having some information of the Chinese system would result in a broader reach in your astrology knowledge.

Some things to ponder about.

In Chinese Astrology, I don't know if there's an actual chart that you read. The information is more basic from what I know.

Chinese astrology helps give another perspective, but I would say that Traditional, Vedic, or Modern astrology is richer in information.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that Chinese astrology only consists of what you see on the internet. It smells an awful lot like Sun Sign Astrology.

Besides, the Chinese seem to be very guarded with their info.

I'm sure they are hiding something. But if the information is hidden and you only have access to the basics of it, there's not much of a point in learning about it.

That goes back to her OP. She did say "Course in Chinese Astrology". It could be as basic as what we know already from the internet, or something more exclusive. She didn't give much detail as to what she's going to potentially learn.
