Bazi Thoughts: Self-Punishment Lessons Learned

Bazi Thoughts: Self-Punishment Lessons Learned

BaZi Thoughts
In Bazi analysis, we may always want to seek out the good, but there is also important considerations such as the bad and the ugly. Many times, we want to analyze our chart hoping for something amazing to reveal itself between the pillars. One of the most difficult things is to admit the truth of the bad and the ugly. I am not sure of anyone having a spotless Bazi chart. And, those of you who seek the fortune of the pillars I advise to be realistic with yourself. If Bazi helps us know our weakness and forecast when that weakness might unfold, would we not be smart to take heed and take action to help ourselves? When we are analyzing our chart, we will unlikely find anything of great…

Bazi Five Elements: Quality Over Quantity

Bazi Five Elements: Quality Over Quantity

BaZi Thoughts, Uncategorized
When we examine (interpret) the elements within our Bazi chart, we must think of the elements in a relationship to one another and through a lens of quality instead of counting the quantity of each element. We may be tempted to think because two of the same elements are present in our chart must therefore mean they double up and become stronger, such as "two heads are better than one." But, we would not be accurately reading our chart from such a perspective. The interplay of elements within our chart gives us a great deal of important information. We can know when we will have a time in our life when opportunities for growth come available, or when we might meet that special someone. Most people want to know how…

BaZi Thoughts: Clash With Death and Emptiness (DE)

BaZi Thoughts
The elements in our chart need harmonious flow of good Qi. If you are not familiar with BaZi analysis and want to know more, you can print out your chart here or even better find a course here. Discovering why things work out the way they do sometimes makes so much sense if you know how to understand the elemental energy changes throughout the years, months, and days (even hours) by analyzing your personal Bazi. I notice yesterday in my chart a "death and emptiness (DE)" symbol within the year pillar. The year pillar in a chart represents ancestral support, grandparents, or our life before our first ten year luck cycle (mine starts at 7 years old). Not many people spend a great deal of time explaining what a DE…

BaZi Annual Clash With Month and Hour Pillar

BaZi Annual Clash With Month and Hour Pillar

BaZi Thoughts
I am beginning to learn how to decode my bazi chart, so what I write today is just a basic analysis. For those who are not sure of their hour of birth, a way to decipher is to pay attention each year to how you manage with your relationship with your children, subordinates (which is equal to children), assets that you own, mental state, people you interact with at work, OR current type of work (career). Know that 5:00 AM to 7:00 AM is the hour of the Rabbit. 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM is the hour of the Dragon. 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM is the hour of the Snake. 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM is the hour of the Horse, and so on. Most of the time, a birth…

What is/was He or She Thinking?

What is/was He or She Thinking?

BaZi Thoughts
We often wonder what a person was or is thinking to say or do some of the things we might question of their character. For example, you may be dating someone and wonder why the person seems agitated or want to know if the person is taking your getting together seriously. What if we were able to know or at least have some idea of what really is on the person's mind or in his or her heart? Well, there is a way to have a better idea of the actual characteristics of a person across most situations in life. In other words, can we know what is the basic nature of a person? According to Chinese tradition, a person can inquire of the masters to have an idea of…
