Traditional and Contemporary BaZi Schools of Thoughts

GuiguziBazi is a Chinese form of Astrology that probably has it’s roots way from the days of the Ghost Valley Master or 鬼谷子 (GuiGuZi).

After Xu Zi Ping created the 8 Characters system or commonly known as BaZi, many years down the road there are many fractions to his system emerged. The more famous BaZi system known today are the Blindman sect, the ZiPing system and also the Nature system which is the system that is gaining the popularity. This nature system is primarily coming from the old classics of Qiong Tong Bao Jian 穷通宝鉴.

These system has few hundred to few thousand of years history.

However fast forward to the new millennium, there is new BaZi theory promoted by contemporary practitioners. The system is rather simple but what worries me is that this system is less than 20 years. How fool proof is this system? How many Bazi cases has been proven in this decade of commercialization of Chinese Metaphysics ? On the hind sight, it relies on motivation method to boost the positive psychology in the client, which is a good thing after all. However this is off the subject on Destiny analysis.

Perhaps I dwell a little on the system that I know better and proven for centuries and show case how it has helped a client of mine.

Singing Legend Sam Hui

In the wake of the suicide case of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain just last 2 weeks, it makes me think, why do people choose to go this path of taking one’s own life. They have fame, success, money and fans, yet they are not happy. It was then I remembered this song 浪子心聲 (Heart of a Loafer) by the evergreen Cantopop singer, composer, musician and also actor, Sam Hui.

Undeniably I grew up with his songs and I have to admit I am one of his fans. Now that I have gained good knowledge in the art of Bazi, I am very much interested to see if its true to what I believed and what he has sung in one of this best hit song, 浪子心聲 released in 1976. In this song there is chorus 命裡有時終須有 命裡無時莫強求.

He was born in Canton, China and he started his career at the age of 20 and his popularity grew in the peak around the 70’s and early 80’s. Till today his song is still very popular among many Cantonese speaking people. He writes his own song, lyrics it and even sang them. Not many have this type of talent. After getting popular, he ventured and into films and made a few movies together with his brother Micheal and Ricky Hui. Unfortunately, Ricky the younger brother left couple of years ago.

Till today he is still singing and occasionally puts up a concert around the world.

Enjoy his song below:

This song was composed by him and Peter Li, lyrics written by him and of course sung by him as well.

難分真與假 人面多險詐 幾許有共享榮華 簷畔水滴不分差
無知井裡蛙 徒望添聲價 空得意目光如麻 誰料金屋變敗瓦

命裡有時終須有 命裡無時莫強求

雷聲風雨打 何用多驚怕 心公正白璧無瑕 行善積德最樂也
人比海裡沙 毋用多牽掛 君可見漫天落霞 名利息間似霧化

Major Luck Cycle

Chinese say that Destiny is first while Luck comes second whilst Feng shui comes in only third. 一命二运三风水

Destiny can be read from our Natal Chart 命盘 while Luck cycle changes every 10 years. Thus the role of Major Luck 大运 is second to Destiny indicates it’s importance and significance in our lives. Sometimes we may be born with an average destiny but with a favourable luck cycle, life can be as fulfilling as well.

Of course this comes with a time limit since each luck cycle only last 10 years. Some people have major luck that last 20 years and I have seen some with as long as 40 years or 4 cycles. Most people takes about 3 years to earn their first million so a good luck cycle is enough to make your first bucket of gold. The rest is up to how you want make good use of the wealth.

So how significant is the effect of a Major Luck Cycle can have on us?

Bazi Case Study

A good example is the case of George Saunders:

Man Booker Prize: George Saunders wins for “Lincoln in the Bardo”.

Infidelity Chart

I received an Bazi Course promotion sometime back and in that article, it tells about how to find out if the spouse has potential of playing infidelity. It says…

  1. Lots of Indirect Wealth (for men) / 7 Killings (for ladies)elements in the chart.
  2. Having lots of Peach Blossom stars – Peach blossom stars are the 子,午,卯,酉。
  3. A clash in the Spouse palace.
  4. Has many output elements, good likability factor that creates opportunity for infidelity. – Usually they say this has got to do with Hurting Officer 伤官or Eating God 食神。

Britney Spears allegedly cheated on Justin Timberlake, according to an ex of hers unfortunately named Jason Alexander (not *that* Jason Alexander). She was previously accused of cheating on Timberlake, who was probably just too awesome and well-adjusted for her, with her choreographer at the time Wade Robson.

Britney was born on 2 December 1981 in the hour of Chou,

Correct Way of Reading BaZi

Jack Ma Bazi Chart Analysis

Bazi Astrology tells us our capacity in life and that is, how far we are able to achieve in life. At least this is the Chinese Metaphysics point of view. There maybe other views such as God who decides everything we do.

Jack Ma has been one of the fastest uprising Chinese who has made his fame and fortune just within a span of 10 years or so. Just this year’s 11.11 sales, Alibaba made 25 billion dollar sale in a single day!. Was he fated or destined to reach what he is today or purely hard word, positive thoughts and foresight?

I found his time of birth in the internet and so let’s see from the Bazi point of view what his natal chart can tell us.

JACK MA
Jack Ma Bazi Natal Chart

What is so special about his chart?

Since we are on the subject wealth, let’s focus on it. Since Jack Ma is a Ren 壬 Day master thus his wealth element is the Fire. Thus Bing 丙 and Ding 丁 represents his wealth in his Bazi Chart.

If we inspect his chart, there are only 2 little fire hidden in the Hidden Heavenly Stem inside the Yin 寅 and Xu 戌. With very little fire in his chart why is he able to amass so much wealth and fame?

That’s quantity counting of wealth element which is not always true.

Then he was born in Autumn 🍂 and during Autumn, the fire 🔥 Qi which is also his wealth is also weak. Thus if we were to look from the Quality point of view, it too does not explain why his Bazi brings him so such fame and wealth.

Both Quantitative and Qualitative wise, the fire is not strong in his chart, so where did the money coming from?

If you are a student from the Strong and Weak school, then a Ren 壬 Day master born in Autumn should be a strong Day Master. If he is strong thus Output and Wealth is favourable while Friends and Rob Wealth is unfavourable for him and he has both of them.

Little Wealth Element In His Bazi Chart

However we know his wealth (fire) is very “weak” in his chart. His output which is represented by Wood element which he has it in the Yin 寅 & Jia 甲. Quality wise, Wood is also considered weak and a dead Qi (in Autumn) in his chart. Can this wither tree generate good wealth?

Bazi Analysis – A Motherly Clash

A mother was lamenting to me about the her current predicament about all her daughters rebelling with her and it all happened during this year. It’s just too much to bear for a mother who had dedicated her life to upbringing her daughters. Now its like a sand storm situation in her home.

Today, all her daughters are doing well both in relationship as well as career. I have to say that she has done well as a mother in not only upbringing the girls but also fed them well and educated them well. As a result of her prudence, the girls have started out in life way better than most average kids, including me. They have not need to suffer the “inconvenience” as I did.  I wished too I have a mother like her. Haha…

To add salt to the wound, the husband who just recently returned from a long overseas assignment, brought about more stress to her.

Of course it is painful to experience when not one but all girls are cohesively got together to go against the mother just for a small reason. Trust me it’s really a small matter blown out of proportion case. I can really feel her disappointment.

After lending her my ears, it suddenly came to my senses, hey, lets take a peep at her Bazi. Here is her Bazi:

Strategy Using BaZi

Donald Trump was born 14 June 1946 during the Si 巳 Hour or Snake hour and thus his 4 pillars of destiny or Bazi is shown below.

donald-trump
Natal Chart of Donald Trump
Bazi destiny reading is divided into 3 major parts. They are namely the Natal Chart, the Major Luck and the Minor Luck or sometimes commonly known as annual lucks. To any person, the most influential of the 3 is of course the Natal Chart followed by the Major Luck cycle. Major luck cycle changes every 10 years but to different people, it begins at different times of their lives. Some may start the luck at the age of 2 while some at the age of 9 for example.

Looking at the history of Donald Trump’s road to White House, he started to have this idea as early as 1988 but it becomes more evident in and around 2009. However, he dropped the idea during the 44th Presidential election (2011) but decided to pursue it this round.

Could it be that he thought he had better chance against Hillary over Obama? Well we can only guess what is in his mind.

Major Luck Cycle
The question is why in this 45th presidential election that he is so confident to enter the race to be the president? There could be many other reasons for that but let’s look at the Chinese astrology point of view or Bazi point of view and what it can offer.

In 2013, he is already into the major luck of Xin Chou 辛丑. So is Xin Chou better than the previous luck of Geng Zi 庚子 ?

To understand this, first we have to understand his Natal Chart.

Donald Trump Natal Chart

He is a Ji 己 earth day master and a pretty strong one too. His chart has no water element at all. Water element is Wealth to Donald. Thus many practitioners and students of BaZi is pretty puzzled over his chart that a person without water (wealth) element in the chart can be a Billionaire!

So how does it goes about? Well some practitioners classify his as Thriving Chart. A Thriving Chart is supposed to be without Officer. They say this is the case because they rationale that the Officer element of Jia 甲 is combined with the Day Master Ji 己 and has transformed. Firstly this is not really correct because the Day Master cannot be transformed away.
