Chinese birth reading is a data analysis tool to raise self-awareness, understand our value system, motivations and present a road map pointing us the right direction. 2 popular formulas to analyse our date of birth are 子平法 and 紫微斗数. Another school Qi Men Dun Jia 奇门遁甲 is not used for birth analysis because it works better with predictions.
Chinese birth reading is definitely not some overrated get-rich-quick formula nor placing or wearing expensive jadeite to improve luck.
“Know thyself, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories” by Sun Tzu.
Sun Tzu believed that if we understand ourselves and enemy we will emerge victorious. Although we are not at war, but we have our daily monsters to deal with such as lack of self-belief, confidence, purpose, courage we are actually battling everyday…mentally without us consciously knowing.
Chinese birth reading study our destiny, marriage, wealth, career 妻财子禄寿
Who are you? Your persona (swagger), attitude, effort, discipline, determination, education, confidence, faith, passion
Zi Ping Bazi algorithm uses the Day Master and Zi Wei Dou Shu (purple star) uses trinity of 3 palaces & 4 directions + 4 changes (三方四正, 四化) to our birth calling. Zi Ping profund insight of life comes from DM interaction with year, month and time. The interaction i term it as 6Cs for easy remembrance. It can be Complementary 喜, Conflicting 忌, Contrasting 冲, Contradictory 刑, Controlling 克 or Cooperative 合(日主八字用神分析). Here use Jia Wood-Day Master as an example.
Then we look at day master’s relationship with 十神10 deities forming Birth structure 格局 and meanings 八字，比肩、劫财、正官、七杀（偏官）、正印（印绶）、偏印（枭神、枭印、倒食）、正财、偏财、伤官、食神. Add 10-Years luck pillar and Annual Luck into the melting pot and “voila” you got the dynamics of your entire Life!
When are your life’s journey transition points?
The result = Bazi configuration expose WHO YOU ARE? your career path? e.g. work for somebody or on your own. Sources of income? marriage relationships? etc.
See chart above the 10-Year Luck pillar predicts timing of events of our future. The age or year shows the transition points when luck changes. At what age is your Golden period (good luck)? What if there isn’t any? At which age is 10-year downtime? What preparations & actions to do.
By now you will realised my emphasis on Chinese Birth Reading is awareness and effort, not claim luck-enhancement toys by some Master David Copperfield nor feng shui placement. Once they try to sell you something expensive you should able to smell a rat from a mile away. Good masters don’t sell, they consult & provide solutions. There are plenty of good feng shui masters in Singapore that don’t sell items, so be careful.
Ten Year Luck cycle Forecast 十年大运
Chinese bazi reading calculate 1 cycle of 10 years or 1 Luck pillar. Every 10th year is one transition point which could be getting better or worse. The time line for the predicted events are not 100% precise because concept of time is not linear but relative human memories. Give or take about +/- 2 years based on my experiences.
You may wonder why. Let’s take 2 persons having the same illness like gastric ulcer. Mr. HC, (health conscious) seek a doctor immediately at the onset of pain. Whereas Mr. CBB (can’t be bothered) just live with the pain because it comes and go. The unfortunate event should it require surgery for Mr HC will occur earlier than Mr CBB. Thus time line for forecasted event is not exact.
Chinese birth reading 10 years vs annual forecast
Some clients wanted me to do annual bazi reading and i rejected most of them. The main reason is for those who requested, their 10-years luck period is bad, which i have already offered solutions. To me is cruel and psychologically unhealthy to break into months for them. It is not constructive to carry a negative outlook in life. The 10 year luck forecast that i did already highlighted the bad years. Micro-managing one’s life is not helpful.
Bazi Structure 命 vs 10-Year luck cycle 运 which is more important
This is a common debate on birth vs luck. In my opinion i would say when a person is born (birth profile) he is endowed with certain assets or liabilities. Thus if you are a child of a billionaire you need not worried about food, water, clothing, education, money and shelter – the basic necessities of life. On the other hand if you are born from a poor family you will have to struggle to make ends meet.
Luck comes to play if we are referring to someone’s accomplishments. Using the same example the rich man son due to his comfort zone may party 24/7 with nothing achieved. Whereas son of poor dad, study and work hard may become the youngest billionaire!
Chinese birth reading – 10 years luck strategies
10 years luck forecast reveal timing of life events. Given insights to our future, we gear up life-strategies to make wiser decisions for our career, business investment, marriage, education etc. Certain long term life decisions are important to us. For instance i have a business client that started a franchise business and lost money over the past 6 months. He approached me thinking that there something wrong with shop feng shui. After going through there are no major feng shui problems. Luckily for all my clients i do provide a quick snapshot of “bazi bonus” in conjunction with feng shui audit so i tell him about his bazi reading.
Told him that his in-born personality is not suited to do business. He lacks innovation, risk averse, slow in taking actions, easy-going to the extent of gullible…so i presume you know what are my recommendations.
Don’t imagine that jadeite, trinket or figurine will improve your luck
The concept of Chinese birth reading on 10 Year Luck Pillar is to provide a general insight into our future like a weather forecast. Blue skies or stormy weather is how well we prepared to embrace our future. One odd feedback after the birth reading “even” with practical advise on character building, health exercise, QMDJ, timing, feng shui, education courses to take etc… 5% of clients would still asked “so how do i improve my luck?” My assumption is they wanted an “effortless way” such as wearing talisman of sorts, luck will instanteously improve! omg.
Don’t live life to chances
The reason we should know our chinese birth reading is to see how our life is headed and which direction. This is where we exercise our positive law of attraction than leaving it to chance.
Hence tools like feng shui home, office, auspicious chinese name and others help us to make life easier. In any case if we know deep down that we do what could humanly possible and our best that we fought till our last breath and heartbeat.
We live by choice not by chance. There is no meaning to life if we live by chance alone. Sound planning through chinese birth reading, education or any life improvement methods, plays a pivotal role to lead a better and happier life. Sustained action in spite of all odds spur us to achieve our desired outcome. Still, in other areas when circumstances are uncontrollable like the Asian Financial crisis in 2008, SARS outbreak in 2002-2004 etc. We realised how small we are.
