Decoding Birth Data Analysing Destiny Designing Life

Chinese philosophy says that in life, “Humans stand between Heaven and Earth.” In our affairs, whether we like it or not, we are ruled by Heaven above and impacted by the Earth you stand on. Destiny is Heaven Luck. Feng Shui is Earth Luck. What actions Humans do or take – activates Human Luck.

The ancient sages have passed down a fascinating body of knowledge to decode Heaven Luck acquired in their observation and study of the planetary system. They kept records of events and happenings. Who are we to dispute these ancient, mind boggling findings? Who are we to dispute their centuries of record keeping of their successes?

They teach that Humans need Earth science and need to know what Heaven has in store for them. Humans have to seize opportunities when they appear and make things happen when they are in the right place doing the right thing at the right time. Modern masters teach what the ancient sages have been teaching all the while that “being in the right place, doing the right thing at the right time” will bring good outcomes. This is what we can learn from too. BaZi reading, based on thousands of years of Chinese history, is a reliable and alternative tool to use in contemporary living. The decoding of our birth details reveals great insights into understanding of who we really are. BaZi – the traditional Four Pillars of Destiny charting pertains to the year, month, day and hour of birth.

According to ancient teachings, there is this unique underlying energy present at that point of time of our birth. Our destiny when decoded will help us understand why our life is an uphill climb sometimes, and smooth sailing at others. The two pathways – one of greater ease and the other of great resistance – are open for us to choose. Knowing our Four Pillars of Destiny, we can deal powerfully with each and every aspect of life under the BaZi system. The Day Master refers to the person holding the destiny code in the astrological chart.

This proven, ancient practice has guided Imperial China for thousands of years. The ancient masters have left the lasting legacy to help their descendants down through the generations to seek answers when meeting modern challenges. Today, its countless end users all over Asia view destiny reading as an investment rather than as an expense, never as an after thought, but as a way of life in meeting any new year prepared to take on challenges. It is now available for others to embrace.

How BaZi can help you

The key to understanding Chinese astrology – the BaZi system – lies in understanding the interaction & user-ability of the 5 Elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal & Water. Understanding its principles helps you to profile your strengths as well as knowing your weaknesses. This insightful information leads to you making informed decisions easier.

When you follow your natural potentials you will live your life filled with joy. But if you focus on your weakness, everything in life is hard work. The insights gained reveal options of a clear pathway of ease to take following strengths and capacities versus the constraints you meet along the path of great resistance filled with hard work, literally surviving as you work around your limitations. The decoding of the 8 characters in the destiny charting gives powerful insights to formulate strategies to design your life. Knowing what you know about yourself and your capacities, you can create a vision of excellence and grace following your purpose in life.

The Key Areas in Life Management


It is good to know your personal capacity for wealth accumulation if that field interests you. Not knowing your incapacity you are wasting precious time doing what you are not good at.
