论命 vs 算命
I was having a discussion with a fellow practitioner on the subject “How to gain the most out of Astrology consulting?” may it be Bazi, Purple Star or even palmistry. The one point he brought was very interesting.
If we stop to think and ask ourselves why will you want to consult a destiny analyst, I believe the ultimate goal is to know how to improve our lives or destiny although I know a big pool of people who just want to know their destiny outcome out of curiosity. Questions like Will they be rich, will they be the next CEO, will they have a good marriage etc at the back of their head while improving destiny is lesser importance in this category of people’s mind.
Then there are the escapist who just cannot accept their destiny and goes on to find a astrologist or destiny consultant who will tell them what they have long to hear. Sadly but these numbers in this category of people is also quite significant.
Broadly there are 2 major approach to destiny analysis. Let’s discuss them in turn beginning with the current trend.
