Bazi 八字 or Chinese Birth Profiling / Reading
Birth profiling in Chinese is call Ba Zi 八字学 or birth reading or 8 characters of fate. These 8 Chinese characters is derived from your date of birth including time.
Our birth chart contain clues to a person’s destiny, health, relationships, personality, marriage, career and wealth, basically all aspects of life. By understanding one’s birth configuration one will have a better understanding of oneself. It is like a “self-awareness” program.
It is only through “awareness” about our own character, strengths, weaknesses…that we can use Chinese Birth reading as the “lever”. That is using a lesser amount of effort with the right fulcrum (bazi chart) we can make positive changes to our life.
Thus birth reading does not transform life from bad to good but provide you with the right direction to go. However it does helps us to realize our underlying issues that hinder us from reaching our goals. Goals means different things to different people, to some is wealth, others leading a fulfilling life helping the needy, health, marriage, family, relationship, career etc.
Using the Birth Chart one can formulate “10-Year luck pillars” to forecast the “general trajectory” of our future. It is like using the “google map” to plot our destination. It will show us different routes to reach the same destination-goals and it is up to us to “choose” which route to take.
REDISCOVER your Destiny to REDEFINE it 知命 而改善 命运
The concept of Birth Profiling help us to “take charge” and “take action” and focus on things that matter. Please allow me to explain. For example Mr A birth structure shows that he is a very creative and intelligent person but a poor executor and finisher. Then he should focus his talents at the right direction and Singapore academy driven education system may not be the best option for his upbringing.
Through birth reading we focus on our strengths and play down on our weaknesses. Some of you may not agreed with me and there is no Right or Wrong answer. But this is what Chinese birth reading about 知命而改善命运 . In the above e.g. Mr A still requires to sharpen his creativity through education & experiences if not it will be day-dreaming, working on ideas that will not work.
Some pessimist will view birth reading as 宿命論 “fatalism”, because if the reading is negative or the luck is downhill, they will lose sleep and get stress up. Why not adopt a “positive mental attitude” to turn things around instead of giving up to fate because you already have the “unfair” advantage to know how your bazi works and how your luck unfolds in the future.
Bazi 10 Year Luck period is like weather forecast
To quote Benjamin Franklin “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
Using an analogy, 10-Year Luck Pillar is like “weather forecast”. It gives you a general idea about your future inclinations. Is your future going to be sunny, stormy or fair? It is improbable to change the weather tomorrow but you can prepare by doing something positive to make things happen.
How to use your unfair advantage & take charge of your own Destiny
The truth is not of us are “leaders” if not the whole world will be in chaos. Some are good in providing support while others are die hard analytical and some who lived by instincts and gut. One can’t say who is more important or better because it depends on the situation or problem to solve.
There are causal laws govern by the Universe, one make wiser decisions by acknowledging and applying what we are good at and taking advantage of certain timings or people in our life. Some call it “luck”, i called it “being prepared”. It is this “self-awareness” and “taking charge & action” that make us where we are today.
To give you an example, certain “bazi structure” requires you to “job hop” in order to promoted yourself to move up the corporate ladder. Thus working in the civil sector is going to be a bad idea! Acknowledge and understanding this gives you an “unfair advantage” already.
