Does 奴僕宫 servant/friend palace has substanstial influence on a chart?

 
Friends palace in "zi wei dou shu" is always the most underrated palace. Those learning “dou shu” always favors the 科禄权 “Ke Lu Quan” into the 命宫 Ming palace. And they are very afraid of having 化忌 “hua ji” in Ming or shining from the 三方四正 “san fang si zheng” triangular and square combination. This is a misconception of classification in the "zi wei dou shu" studies.
Years of research shows that when the owner has many “lu” in the Ming palace they are very seldom hardworking nor ambitious. Usually they like enjoyments and easy life or tend to indulge in pleasure seeking. If your “Ming” palace have “Ke Lu Quan” in triangular and square coupled with strong stars it is pity because all your other palaces like friend, parent, health or family are susceptible to the balance of the bad stars. Without having the support of the periodical stars when only your “Ming” palace is strong then the person will look good on surface only. At the beginning of learning “zi wei dou shu” the “hua ji” is usually the most disliked stars so usually most beginners will like it to be located at friend palace and stay far away from your “Ming”. Even till date many practitioner still have this type of thinking. A friend palace represents friends, subordinates, partners, strangers and outsiders. Many times when this palace is inflicted by bad stars it will cause the chart owner to face problems like mishaps, wealth loss, murder, robbery, kidnap, rape and other crimes. So this palace should not be taken lightly especially during the decade luck cycle gets inflicted by bad stars. When all the “ji’s” are used, it will cause major issues so we must be very careful, alert and aware of it.

For example in India where a girl who went up to the bus with his boyfriend and she was gang raped. In certain countries if you are not careful as a female you could have such problems even when you are a teenager. In this bus rape case, the culprit was caught and some was ONLY sentenced to imprisonment!!!  Because of the wide spread coverage of this particular incident the authorities was then being pressured to a heavier sentenced. It is really sad. In this type of country their culture and implementations are so weak that many young women become an object of sacrifice.  This category of gang criminals and problems comes from the 奴僕 “nu pu gong” or servant/friend palace.

This is another research case from the Chinese society and this chart is also inflicted in the friend palace. Her birth detail was kindly shared by an inspector that was handling the case.  This case has shocked the whole Taiwan as her mother was also a celebrity. 




She was kidnapped while she was going to school. The ransom asked was 5 million USD. In the end she was still being murdered. The 18 years old teenager body was found in a drain, naked and tortured. The kidnappers knew her parents. Finally they were caught and sentenced to death.www.ziweidoushubazi.blogspot.com Mar 2014

2014 JIA LIAN PO WU YANG 甲廉破武阳

This 2014 year is 甲午年 “Jia Wu nian”. Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone especially those with the 杀破狼 “Sha Po Lang” format 心想事成 “Xin Xiang Shi Cheng” get what they wish , 桃花旺 “tao hua wang” good peach blossom luck and 步步高升 “bu bu gao sheng” rise in position/status.
 
In "zi wei dou shu" fundamentals, stars are grouped into two major formats. One is “sha po lang” format group consisting of many businessmen and 武职 “wu zhi” martial, action or activity related type of work. And the other format group is the 机月同梁 “ji yue tong liang” format where alot 文职 “wen zhi” or corporate, literary or office type of work. They are more suited to mental, strategy and planning but if this format has bad combinations they may even make a living from cheating or being a conmen.
Jia Wu year in general is more beneficial to the “sha po lang” if the chart is not afflicted by bad stars combination but they must still avoid being too proud or arrogant. Because their 太阳 “tai yang” the Sun star is having 化忌 “hua ji” bad star which is most likely in their friends, family or health palace. When the Sun star is dimmed with “hua ji” then people luck, health luck and family luck will all suffer. The minimum event happenings are just having to face with some low affinity and the most serious could be disputes, departure or sickness. The format becomes maximum when the “tai yang” is dimmed and have two or more “hua ji”. This year is prone to gossips, disagreements and disputes. So think again “Do you think you prefer wealth/career over family harmony?” Tai Yang represents head, heart, blood pressure and eyes. So Beware!!.

If your “tai yang” the sun star is in the bright palace with “hua ji” especially the “Ji Yue Tong Liang” format group as long they choose to stay low profile and humble then disputes and problems can be avoided or minimized. The “ji yue tong liang” format without the bad stars affliction have better friend, family and people support luck. Comparatively to the “Sha Po Lang” group which fair lesser in this aspect. This is a busy and hectic year but if the “tai yang” star is dimmed with “hua ji’s” then it will become a very stressful year. Then one must be careful of all actions and speech to reduce problems.
As the Sun 太阳 “Tai Yang” is related to eyes and head. Those afflicted must take care of their blood pressure and heart. Be careful of your eyes, head and accidents. Try to reduce oily food, start exercising and take care of your health. Also take care of your elderly, parent, grandfather, father or senior of their well being and health.
Careful when  you are overseas for business,  dealing with foreigner or outsider. Be humble, patience & stay low key  to avoid disputes & minimize problems.

Prefer a Show Off or Reserved type ? 鋒芒, 内歛 ?


In zi wei dou shu, when 太阳 “tai yang” star in the “ming” palace, the owner will be frank, outgoing and un-petty type. And they are usually very warm and open to others. But there are exceptions as it depends on their happiness palace or occurrence of killing stars in their triangular & square formation. But this type of chart and character always attract vengeances and jealousy as they are overly warm and busybody. As they are also boastful, proud and straight forward they easily offend others without being aware. And if they have 巨门 “ju men” star around, disputes and gossips will be in abundance. If they can learn to have self control then in their path they will have so much lesser problems. Students love to ask questions like “If tai yang star likes to show off then which star is more moderate or restraint?”

From the Zi Wei Dou Shu research, it is no other than the great 太阴 “tai yin” star. In the classics, there exist a term called 月朗天门 “yue lang tian men” where in the “hai” palace having “hua lu” will make the person's chart formation perfect. But this is an understatement as this formation will also get the “Tai yin hua lu” then “tion tong” and “ju men” star in happiness palace will have “hua ji”. Having experiences of many friends with this combination whenever they call up, it will be a pain to entertain. Having a good excuse to turn them down will bring a lot relief because they can be very stubborn, overly talkative and irritating. Those born on the heavenly stems of 庚年 “geng year” this “tai yin” star will have very different quality chart being further enhanced. It will be very vengeful and petty especially so when their “shen” body palace is similar to happiness palace. Because in this palace their “tian tong” and “ju men” and “hua ji” star will emit this character.

The Taiwan president 馬英九 “Ma Ying Jeou” has this type of chart and also sitting in the “hai” palace. If the birth time is correct then this chart owner will look soft, mild and restraint externally but his inner character will be very different. This type of stars even when they are bright will become too weak and petty but  vengeful. This weakness are not suitable for a leader of a nation. When angry he will use all kinds of way to take revenge. Looking at the current case, of his once an adversary and legal chief 王金平  “Wang Jin Pyng” having some indifference of views with him seen recently in the papers. He tries to penalize him with some minor accusations and unwisely whipped up some political storms. In his chart this will be his last year in his current decade. He would face much bigger consequences ahead. When his political career ends he will attain unfavorable reputation. But those dimmed "tai yin" formation with killing stars or a combination of the 科录权忌 “ke lu quan ji” have the same character but much stronger and daring.
 


For those born in the “xin” or “ji” heavenly stem year, they will have 文曲文昌化忌 “wen qu or wen chang hua ji”. The Tai yin star is not suitable to meet with them when they are bad. Meeting 文昌化忌 “wen chang hua ji” they will be a liar and will twist the facts and like to indulge in pleasures. Meeting 文曲 “wen qu” is even worst as many metaphysics or religious leader when their chart meets  with “wen qu” with dimmed “tai yin” coupled with “hua ji” they are classified as the 九流术士 lowest rank of practitioner in the classics. Usually they are prone to become con men so we always must be very careful as they have great virtue and integrity problems. The "tai yin" being a  soft star is afraid to meet killing stars like 羊陀火鈴 “yang tou huo ling”. When mild and soft stars meet with bad stars, 小心 PLEASE BE WARY!!!


Another “tai yang” chart awarded the Nobel peace prize, named the Taiwan’s Mandela 施明德 “Shih Mingde” having joined the red army and a leader of the Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party's. Fought hard for democracy and anti-corruption. The "tai yang" star style in contrary is more a show off character 锋芒毕露 “feng mang bi lu”. 

 
"Shih Mingde" brings out the voice of justice, freedom and anti corruption. Thou very strong dreams and principles, still can’t manage to change a country but only himself. Because of his actions he had been imprisoned for many times and years. Like a 光明 “guang ming” guileless light in darkness shinning on people. "Ma Ying Jeou" on the other hand can influence a whole country's fate. A leader being mild, soft, unskilled nor talented when he runs a country then people will suffer. But there is a different format of another very different combination of "tai yin" of a renowned president, daring and successfully captained a country. To be continued...      www.ziweidoushubazi.blogspot.com Nov 2013
 
Now think again which do you fear most a Loud & Straight Forward or a Soft & Indirect candidate??

The 'Smarter' you are the harder you fall 機深禍更深


 
A trip to Beijing is worth spending a day to visit the famous Prince Gong’s Mansion 恭王府 “gong wang fu”. This mansion’s formerly houses occupants that have great authority and power. The first was during the realm of the Qing dynasty 清朝 ruling of 乾隆皇帝 “Emperor Qian Long”, where a very prominent corrupted official stayed in this huge mansion. Later 嘉慶帝 “Emperor Jia Qing” prosecuted and confiscated all his corrupted estates, money and his mansion. He was sentenced to death by hanging in his mansion. In 1851, 咸豐帝 the "Emperor Xianfeng" assigned it to his brother 恭親Prince Gong, and the mansion was named after the Prince.

This house is very huge and grand. The balcony and fixtures are very luxurious. It definitely cost a lot of money to build and it is impossible for a common person to own. During the visit you will also realized the fact that, even thou the house is so beautiful but the powerful occupant 和珅 “He Shen” could not even stay for long. As he is cruel and evil, he robs and steals with his powers and his name was condemned and hated for centuries. Finally he was punished and had to endure a horrible death.  He had amassed an incredible fortune equivalent to Qing Dynasty 15 years of imperial revenue which were all forfeited. As the Buddhist teaching once said “Nothing can be carried away with you but only your karma” 萬般带不去,唯有业随身 'wan ban dai bu qu, wei you ye sui shen'.
 During the era of 道光帝 “Daoguang emperor” another national hero of the Opium War 林則徐 “Lin Ze  Xu” an official in the Qing Dynasty. He is recognized for his conduct and his name is still a legacy being considered as a role model for moral governance. Below are the two "Zi Wei Dou Shu" charts for beginner’s research purpose. Both have 天机 Tian Ji and 天梁 Tian Liang in the 命宫 Ming palaceone belongs to a corrupted official and the other is a hero. Very often, many beginners are confused  would love to ask questions like, “Is this star in my Ming palace good?” or “Is Tian Ji and Tian Liang a very good military strategist?”
 
 
“He Shen” - scheming and good in strategy. Greedy and his corruption gains was tremendous and he died in a shameful and horrible way.
 
“Lin Ze Xu” impulsive and outgoing. Justice and fair. Love his people. He burnt the opium and became famous. During the age of 57 years old, the British forces gave pressure to the Qing government and he was exiled to the remote regions.
 
Prince Gong’s Mansion Feng Shui 風水  .
Built for “He Shen” in year 1877. He was prosecuted in year 1899. 坐北向南 Sitting North Facing South.
 
Three obvious flaws.
1)      Powerful Luck Period Running Out
2)      Reverse Lian Zhen Land Formation
3)      Dead by Hanging Occurrence Violated
 

Fire Burning Heaven, Family Bearing Unfilial Son 火烧天家生骂父之儿

Does FENG SHUI  affect Destiny or 運 "ming yun" Destiny is controlled by Feng Shui? With continuous research and verification, you will find that when a person is good luck he will stay in a good feng shui house. So then, which is more important? Or is it after the feng shui master advice, he becomes a billionaire. Below is a real life chart and house of a family member of our student. His chart is heavily influenced by feng shui and is also controlled by destiny therefore his life scores has been reduced. During his good cycle, he was not doing extremely well. But during his bad cycle the stove and the door influenced his attitude and health. Can you analyse the difference between luck cycle vs feng shui influence? So which is in control? Practitioners with good skills will already have the answers in their mind.  



In this case, the guy is working in a foreign company in the wood industry having to supervise 3 subordinates. According to his zi wei dou shu chart he would possess virtual authority and he is  in a good cycle. Till dead he was staying in a government allocated house. His chart is affected by the environment and his luck cycle is not following his actual path. During his younger age till the age 34 years old he has had bad relationship with his parents. He is impulsive and hot tempered. At the age of 31 he quareled with his dad and punched his dad due to some minor issues. Whenever he lost control of himself he will hurt his parents. Even when his mom tries to be strict and hurt his ego, he would throw away his moms belongings. He is a person that likes to enjoy himself, womanized and is not responsible towards his own family. During 35-44 he divorced. During the age of 45-54 he remarried and gave birth to a son again. During that time he was able to enjoy a little life. At the age of 49 years old he got cancer. During the age cycle of 55-64, he divorced again. From the age of 45 onwards his relationship with his parents improved greatly & he became filial.


This house formation is 未山 "wei shan"  mountain 丑向 "chou xiang" facing. The House was set in 五 "wu yun" period 5. Their stove is in the 6 3, 9 6 & 1 7 sector. 乾卦 "qian gua" and its 五行 "wuxing" five element is "jin" metal,  representing head in body parts and old man. And 離卦 "li gua" element is "huo" fire and it controls metal. So it is also describing the flying star formation of fire burning heaven, family bearing a child that abuses his father 火烧天家生骂父之儿 "huo shao tian jia shen ma fu zhi er".
So people that resides in this house will have the tendency for children sickness and cramp. Every week  his children will goto hospital. Until his first wife divorced and brougth their children away from the house and so they all recovered. He also changed the stove in year 1990 and his cancer recovered. But after he changed his stove to 5 8 and facing 2 it caused his second wife to have complication during pregnancy. His latest son was also very stubborn and hard to teach. Chidlren are disobedient to him too. During his death his youngest current son refused to come and pay a last respect to him at the funeral, stating that he was busy!!

Destiny and Religion 命運與宗教

 
In the new era of advance information technology and the evolvement of all old and new pop culture and religion. Individual interest and belief have become only a surface level demand today. But they are not having any depths in the actual meaning of its culture and religion. Examples like some of the believers of Buddhism or Taoism would only know how to use the joss stick and prayers to ask for selfish individual needs of better health, babies and wealth. Being mortals they always think that Buddha or God is limitless in blessings and will meet all their prayers. God offerings are in abundance like lamp oil, lightings, monk blessings and prayers. If doing all these can help them to remove all their sins and fulfill their blessing, then it is a wrong way of counting your blessings. CAN RELIGION really change your destiny? 
Madam yap shared, “This is a true story that happened years back. A past that will still brings tears to my eyes. A lady who is my good friend and she is very passionate on metaphysics, destiny reading and feng shui. She was my best companion in this kind hobby, research and study. I remembered clearly in the year 1984 where her first child was born. Naturally the 八字 “bazi” of her son will be of great interest on our research. At the beginning it was seen in the child’s chart that disaster is coming ahead. And even her chart also indicates her children will have problems. She then took her child’s bazi to numerous masters to verify the findings but in the end all came to the similar result. From then on she was very worried and stressed. She has started to pray and do more charity on behalf of her son trying to compensate her child’s luck. She will bring her son to everywhere to pray, contribute and become vegetarian for 10 days every month. Every year she will spend all her money on charity. She was all out to help society and the needy. But sadly in the middle of the year 1991 her son died of 脑膜炎 “naomoyan” brain infections. During that time of extreme disappointment she asked “My son from the age of 1 year old, I had been praying 求神拜佛 “qiu shen bai fo” and doing charity 行善 “xingshan” and luck compensation 积福 “ji fu” hoping he would have a long life. Even Sunday I bring him to church. Why, I still can’t keep my child? By doing all this, what is the use of it?” She asked me firmly this question. I was loss of words as she didn’t understand in the Buddhism beliefs, there is such thing as 因果“yin guo” KARMA. In the end she had dropped every beliefs from her life”.

Now let us talk about Destiny/Fate. Destiny is formed from energy. Energy is 阴阳五行 “ying yang wu xing” ying and yang with five elements.  So in the olden days they will use the 年月日时 “nian yue ri shi” birth data to group into different formation to calculate 夭寿穷通 “yao shou qiong tong” human fate. In religion it is term karma. Every past life it will cumulate points. What you owe you will need to repay. What others owe you; it will not be short changed to you. Those who killed a lot in the past will be born with many surgeries and injuries in next life. Every life you will repay and borrow in cycles and the circle will never stop. When we are born we will see how much the karma of the owing and favor. Whether you need to repay your parent or your parent owe you. A metaphysics/destiny reader will clearly understand and recognize all this karma. It is not uncommon to witness young people having a nice and kind character but becomes bad when he grows up. It is all because of his environment that will change accordingly to his karma.  Just like the lady in the story that had 破军文曲 “po jun wen qu” in her children palace and “jian” meeting 化忌 “hua ji”. In 斗数  “dou shu” there is a verse 水中作冢  “po jun wen qu jian hua ji shui zhong zuo zhong” meaning all these few stars collaborate and it will  result a grave in the water formation. Destiny is never easy to alter. As the lady from the story above was very afraid that her son corpse will be misuse by Chinese voodoo for spells so after the son’s death she had him cremated and thrown his ashes into the sea.  It is unbelievable or mere coincidence that destiny arrangement and the environment settings are all being influenced by the world energies. In the Chinese society the strong cultural commandments of 一命二运三风水四积荫德五读书 “yi ming er yun san feng shui si ji yin de wu du shu” meaning, first destiny, second luck, third feng shui, fourth charity and fifth knowledge, is it really TRUE?



Having a simple heart, living with kindness, avoid greed and understand the fact that whatever is not belonging to us will eventually be gone. Do not commit crime, robbery and fights. With these life principles you will then be a much happier and peaceful person, lightening your karma in life. More so when a practitioner knows when his chart and luck cycle becomes bad it is crucial to avoid disputes, and control your temper to prepare for his future path. In Dou Shu the palaces and charts will definitely have a good 10 year cycle if you can utilize this period to work hard and prepare for the down time or to gain a better life ahead. We sincerely hope you can spread this teachings, “Human destiny are not forcible nor to be greed after. What is not meant to be, it will still be empty in the end. Hoping you can stop evolving your bad karma throughout the cycle”.
迷外安知身是客, Mi wai an zhi shen shi ke,
浮生端为名利忙, Fu sheng duan wei ming li mang,
堪叹阎浮多苦恼, Kan tan yan fu duo ku nao,
何时同得度慈航.   He shi tong de du ci hang.




 
 

2013 GUI PO JU YIN TAN 癸破巨阴贪



癸巳年 GUI SI year. During each year end where many friends and students will gather, but it is frustrating as every time they will be asking questions like “What do you think of the election?, How is our 国运 “guo yun”country luck?, How is the 全球经济  “quan qiu jing ji” world economy?”. Isn’t it funny?To know about world economy they should ask the expert economist. To know aboutthe country or economy thou shall not consult a destiny reader or feng shuimaster, as they are not god and we definately don't enjoy to simply mislead the public. In 命运 “mingyun” destiny path is all different on everyone and the bazi can beinfluenced by individual's life and actions. Using people destiny knowledge to applyon macro countries is a sheer exaggeration.
 
In 2013 gui si year, 破军 “pojun” becomes 化禄 “hua lu” and 贪狼 “tan lang” becomes化忌 “hua ji”.If your chart is the “sha po lang” format and in the 三方四正  “san fang si zheng” triangular/squarehaving single “tan lang hua ji”, and without the presence of “sha” or bad stars it will not be seriously affected thisyear. “Gui” year with “po jun hua lu” even your “tan lang” becomes “hua ji” youcan still have good outcomes with more effort and hard work. “Tan lang” star in“zi wei dou shu” represents 桃花 “tao hua”peach blossom, 情欲 “qing yu” pleasures and  物欲 “wu yu” materialistic.Any normal or abnormal relationship is also related to this star. Whether thisstar is bright or dim, and where it is situated in different palace it willhave various outcomes. In simple terms, if tan lang in “ming” or 疾厄 “ji e” healthpalaces it is better to avoid places of water. Formerly there was a student whobrought a “bazi” of a mother and daughter for academic research. This familydied in the year 2004 tsunami. Both the chart indicates prone for water danger.One of the chart has a “tan lang hua ji” in their cycle luck. When the year isnot favorable and palaces are affected by “sha” or “hua ji” it is best to avoidwater danger to reduce your risk. If it is in your 夫妻宫 “fu qi gong” spouse palace and only single effect then itindicated is minimal or slight unstableness. With patience and EQ everythingwill return to normal after the year has passed. If it lands in yor moneysection and the stars are dim then it indicates money loses in pleasures andentertainment. If it is in your health related palaces, women with unfavorable starswill have 妇女病 “fu nu bing” gynaecologicalsickness. For men if it falls into the “si” or “hai” palaces are prone tosexual related organs, mental and health irregularities. So it is best to minimizeexcessive pleasures or affairs. So do check if your chart has ‘tan lang” inyour spouse palace? Is it favorable, dim or bright?
 In this New Year 2013, we hope that the 命理学者 “ming li xue zhe” metaphysics learners will use true andoriginal methods to bring continuity to this ancestor’s wisdom of the Chinesecultural science & knowledge. And not use this knowledge to talk about the countryluck. Although they can't be held responsible in using this knowledge to mislead,but it is disgracefully humorous to the entity. The current society is verydifferent from the era of the older generation, as everyone is trying tocompete in becoming the top master. But sadly  true scholars and researchers of metaphysicsare very scarce. Master 南怀瑾 “nan huai qin” whose knowledgein 易经 “yi jing” is a teacher that most should meet but we are notso lucky as he has already went to heaven to enjoy himself. This respectableelderly man has composed books and has wide knowledge. His has a very openattitude and approach in life. Most importantly he does not utilize hisknowledge to teach or mislead for the sake of fame and money. This type of 师父 “shi fu”, not many that are still exist in this world. 
 

This true knowledge when found it can be used in daily lifeas it will be a compass to guide and improve your life, and to cushion your falls.Until unless you are able analyze your own destiny’s ups and downs, then you areonly qualified to compete but by then you would have seen another deeper levelof LIFE.

Year, Month, Day and X - Missing Hour Pillar.


Remembering what my "shifu" 师父  told me, “I go to bookstores to find many books for research. But I do not buy books about stars description unless it contains famous people’s biography that has birth details attached. As it will then have their major and important events of their life. But most of the time I will end up being disappointed . At first,  I will be delighted to find many "Bazi" charts from the surface of the books in regardless of "Zi Wei Dou Shu" 紫微斗数 or "Bazi" 八字. and I will usually buy all them from the bookstore so that I can utilize my skills and techniques to validate. But back home when I pick up the book to read I will be very unhappy some of the Time 'shijian' 时间 from the book is not real but a mere guess by the authors. The authors are not even their family members but they just fit in the guess work that they have assumed. That is a shear waste of time and money. I will never assume a time of a Destiny chart”.
 
Is it really the right way? To fit a presumed time of birth and put a guess work out of their life eventhou you are not even their family?. And especially in "Zi Wei Dou Shu" where the "runyue" 闰月lunar leap month comes into play. If you have a son or a family member that is born on the upper leap month, some "Zi Wei Dou Shu" schools will take the upper month as the similar month. You may then need to use two charts to verify the happenings. Sometimes both charts and stars can be very similar and the differences  lies only in the monthly stars. True research spirit, means that these kind of different charts must be validated and research for at least 20 or 30 years like what my "shifu" did with her own children's chart. Sometimes it  takes a major events like the death of the grandmother or father to verify. Until then the right techniques  will be firmed and adopted as a person's life path research. Even as a family, we may need a very long time to validate events. So how could an author or a stranger predicts the hour of birth by guessing the events of a person’s "Bazi" chart without much details available. So a TIMELESS Bazi chart are not suitable to be used in judging a person’s success or failure, as many other factors may influenced it. It is strongly advised that we do not become a Misleader or being Misleaded by others. Whether qualified or non qualified practitioner, a "Bazi" with 3 pillars namely the Day pillar, Month pillar and Year pillar, cannot be assumed with a time of birth pillar. Although the person has a very good 3 pillars but the hour pillar may destroy the entire chart even during the good period. When a person going thru a good period the path is smooth but it doesn’t mean that they have a good hour of birth. Maybe you see a bad combination of 3 pillars but the "Yong Shen" 用神 could be in the hour pillar and during the good period the owner may rise to a certain level of success. As a destiny master without the time it is best to avoid giving advice or putting assumptions. All charts can be unpredictable in its path as it is also influenced by many factors. A same Bazi can be influenced by the environment, friends and surroundings. It is also under the influenced by the family background as there are so many complications that can affect the chart. Not being the person around the subject it will be impossible to understand fully. The current era and society changes and fluctuation are so frequent, as a destiny researcher we must have enough knowledge and experiences. You must know the environment, society and happenings around you then only you can be a successful destiny reader in the current times.
 
Recalling an incident that happened recently as my students was paying a visit to our academy. A friend happens also to drop by for a visit. He was on his way to meet someone after delivering us the moon cake. He invited us for dinner as he was on his way to meet a so called, very accurate destiny reader from a famous “caliper” centre, if I recalled correctly. This “shifu” was recommended because of her unbelievable accuracy. So we were delighted to oblige the invitation. When our group arrived, one of our student, namely Mr.Goh was introduced to the lady as the boss of a soon to be listed company. So we  all sat quietly to listen and observe. Shortly after some chit chatting, he requested for a reading from the lady "shifu" who is very talkative and outspoken. She asked for his day, month and year of birth without asking for the time. Then she scribbled some numbers and triangle on the paper. Then she started by describing him as a very successful person with good verbal skills. She continued by saying that he built his successes on his own and was a smooth guy and very suitable for sales. She praise him for being the a leader among leaders and possess high authority. So it went on and in the end, he was impressed and happy. She also mentioned that he will have problems related to his kidney, liver and lungs. He nodded his head in agreement. So after dinner, we left and in the car my student happily asked me what do I think of her. I replied “Do you remember your cousin Mr.TY that had the same birthdate with you but born one hour apart? He kept quiet for a while recalling and then said “Ya! Come to think about it she only mentioned correctly about my liver but the rest of the description wasn't right”. Now suddenly Mr.Goh had a total different reaction from earlier. In fact his cousin was born on the same day but different 时辰 "shi chen" time and also had a very different life. Mr.TY is below average income, have a broken family and still unmarried at age of forties. He is dark, fat and untidy. Mr.TY and Mr.Goh is the exact opposite in contrast except having the same great grandfather. Mr.Goh is a boss and look presentable but he definitely is not a sweet talker as she described. Recalling the consultation where she named many numerous health problems, it is not difficult to hit a right one.

This story not only illustrates that a same day "Bazi" with a different hour branch can have such significant differences. But sometimes certain people are easy believers. Some can be overly superstitious and some are very easy to convinced. They tends to have this FYIB “Fit Yourself Into Bazi” tendency . They will try to fit themselves into the destiny reading to achieve self convince accuracy. Take a look around and you will be surprised that many have done it without being aware.
