Luck is derived from one’s bazi birth chart. It is divided in 10 years per cycle. Besides 10-years luck period, chinese birth reading also consider annual luck. Chinese birth reading believed that luck begins by understanding our birth profile, structure, 10 Years & Annual Luck cycle. As the saying goes, luck is preparation meets opportunity. Chinese bazi reading 子平八字学 help us to prepare our future by revealing it.
From bazi perspective luck is dependable upon:
A. Our Day master, birth structure 八字命局 reveals our personality, strengths and weaknesses.
B. Our 10-Years Luck period 十年大运 (8 x 10 years chart) favourable or unfavourable
C. Annual luck 流年运气 good, average or bad and how to manage it
Understanding these give us an upperhand on what to expect therefore make preparations for it.
A good read on our bazi help us to take advantage when the sky is blue and play down when skies are dark. In a competitive, fast-paced world, we could use some future revleations to gain a competitive edge in career, relationships, businesses or investments.
Play on our strengths to influence our luck outcome
An in-depth birth profile analysis will reveal the type of person you are, your inert talent, personality, strengths & weaknesses We are unique and owe it to ourselves to know. Take for example, bazi reveals that you are a political animal then working in a bureaucratic environment suits you. Or you are good with ideas, creative-solving skills, therefore working in a highly fluid organisation fits. It is not a benchmark to compare who is better, but a revelation on who does a better job based on their strengths and passion.
Some birth profiles do well if they work in the same organisation for many years and promotion will be handed to them on a silver platter. On the contrary some bazi profile need to job-hop in order to gain promotion. These bazi insights are helpful because it saves us time and unnecessary effort.
Who we are, what motivate us and how to go about doing it
Bazi Reading also help us to understand what motivate us. Strangely it may not always be money, some are power-hungry while others like freedom of expressions. Chinese bazi reading believed that we need to understand ourselve 知命 first. So that we can make it work for us立命 and to our advantage. Confucius quote 不知命無以為君子, 不知命就不會去修命，不修命就無法安身立命, it means if we don’t really understand who we really are, how can we improve and be better.

1. Bazi profiling our assets and liabilities
Before is an example of 10-year luck pillar from a person’s bazi.
2. 10 Years luck pillar 2 common scenarios
Scenario 1, the first 30 years of luck are rising, good education and well paid job. It went south after age 31, career went up, down and sideways. It real life it means retrenchment, job-hopping or started own business. In contrast scenario 2 an individual initial 20-Year luck phase is bad. The prize of his labour after age 28. In comparison scenario 2 is easier to live with than scenario 1. It is always harder to take a fall when you are at the pinnacle of your career. Psychologist call this mid-life crisis, bazi call this bad 10 years luck pillars.
For every 6 X 10 year period there is one dark period
Life has it’s ups and downs. It is the “downtime” that stress us. It is common that over a 6 x 10 year duration, there lies one 10-Year period of bad time. Chinese bazi principle call it zodiac sign clashes六 冲!
How well we crawl out from the dark hole depends on our endurance and will power. Besides that you can consider feng shui help with your home or office. It helps to push your luck up by 10-20%.
What to do when your life is in a dark hole?
It’s easy to be grateful when life is a bed of roses. The challenge is when we are down. Here are steps that you can consider to turnaround your situation.
1. Make hay while the sun shines
Identify your bazi 10 years luck pillar. Where are the highs and lows? Capitalise on your highs, save and invest your money. Buffer your lows with secondary plans. Say your bazi 10-year luck pillar reveals that retrenchment is imminent, learn a new skill, rebrand yourself, keep your networks strong. Seek out your bazi nobleman or benefactors before the bad time hit you. Keep calm and prepare for the worst. More often than not it is the bad times that bring out the best in us.
Seriously there are those who are more unfortunate than us. Some are not even born with eyes or limbs? Do we appreciate our eyes and limbs still function when we wake up every day. i am not suggesting mediocracy, just that we have to live life as it is. Too often, we do not take the time to stop and appreciate things, big and small. If we learn to see the beauty, the gratefulness, and the appreciation in the big and small, we learn to live a life of gratitude, and we learn the lesson that we have a great deal to be thankful for.
2. Increase your vitality through bazi lucky element
All of us have experienced challenges or ‘bad’ things in our lives. As we get older, this can considerably burden us with fear, decrease our vitality and create diseases. Consider taking up exercises that suits your bazi 5 elements. Take, for example, if your favourable element is wood, go for 5am – 7am jog in your neighbourhood park to enhance your “wood” luck.
Do exercises and go to places that are favourable to your elements using qi men dun jia or other feng shui formulas to improve your luck no matter how small it is. There is no point whining or complaining.
3. Create abundance
Gratitude decreases ‘brain noise’ we create from continually reliving old negative scenarios in our mind of anger or pain. i believed you heard about the laws of attraction, stay positive. Futhermore when we are grateful, our thoughts automatically make us feel more abundant, more fulfilled and more lovable. This, in turn, will attract more of the same in our lives.
Get involve in charity works. Look after those that are more unfortunate than you.
5. Don’t waste your money buying Annual feng shui products
Trust me it does not work. i have gone through that learning curve during the first 3 years of my feng shui career. Most of the things we need in life are already build into our system. Try our bazi reading service if you like and you will find that most of the recommendations are down-to-earth and effective. However do not over expect because we have to acknowledge our limitations to how much we can do.
6. Go Overseas
Go overseas, take a break and stop worrying. Tomorrow will take care of itself!
7. Feng shui your home and office
Make use of feng shui home or office to improve your luck and balance the elements in your bazi configuration. Try to “artificially” simulate yourself with the lucky elements that you need (non feng shui items) if you have your personal bedroom. Check out your home or office feng shui to improve your career or business or simply family relationships. The lesser the luck you have, the more you need feng shui to help you.
8. Edit your name and make it lucky
Consider upgrading your Chinese name to suit your bazi luck profile. Promote your new name over social media to improve your 10 year luck.
9. Stay Positive, have Faith and Endure
Positive thinking is a mental and emotional state that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results. A positive person anticipates happiness, health and success, and believes he or she can overcome any obstacle and difficulty. Likewise we are affected by the people surrounding us. Meet negative people we end up crying over each other troubles. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level, through words, thoughts and feelings, and through body language. People tends to help us, if we are stayed positive, and dislike or avoid us if we whines and broadcast negativity.
10. Make Positive Affirmations a part of your life
The mind cannot tell the difference between positive or negative; It is what we repeatedly think and say is what you get. The greatness of the human mind is that it can turn thoughts and words into reality. Make positive affirmations every morning and good luck will happen in your life!
