Bazi 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.
Malaysia is going to the polls this May 9 for their 14th General Elections. This time it will be a fight primarily between two major coalitions. Barisan Nasional (BN), the National Front which is the current ruling government which has govern Malaysia since independence from the British in 1957. Prime Minister DS Najib will be leading the national front to face this coming general elections.
On the opposing force is the Pakatan Harapan (PH) or Alliance of Hope is made up as a loose coalition of parties such as PPBM lead by former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir, Parti Keadilan lead by DS Anwar Ibrahim currently serving his prison term, the DAP lead by its secretary general, Lim Guan Eng who is also the Chief Minister of Penang state and Parti Amanah lead by Mat Sabu. The current de-facto leader of PH is Tun Dr Mahathir.
Just before the announcement of the dissolution of the parliment, Tun Dr M party, PPBM has been de-registered by the Registrar of Society. Thus now they will stand as independent candidates.
PM Najib Razak is riddled with his famous 1MDB scandal something his former boss, Tun Dr Mahathir is accusing him of wrong doing and bringing shame to Malaysia since this case is mentioned by many countries including the USA, Switzerland, Singapore and few others.
This general election is seen as the mother of all elections because of a few reasons. First many Malaysian are seeing PM Najib Razak tightening the laws to keep him in power, failure to oust the BN will, in their fear, bring the end of democracy to Malaysia. Tun Dr M is already 92 and he is seen as the only person able to bring about the rural Malays support. Malay race are the major race in Malaysia and due to delineation of election boundaries, also known as gerrymandering, will be of huge advantage to BN to win the elections and govern Malaysia for 60 years. Opposition MP, Rafizi has shown how gerrymandering is working towards BN unfair advantage.
Why Malays are the deciding race in the elections? It is because Malaysia although is a multi racial country but its policy are largely seen as divided according to race and religion. Race and religion is the key agenda in Malaysian politics, thus Dr M is thought as the man of caliber and stature to bring about the change in their mindset and perhaps in the near future new reforms.

Putting the other factors aside, how does astrology charts of both key leader reveal their chances and potential? 【The important Time of birth data is not available】
It is a controversy always when people ask about Twins especially when they try to reconcile their Bazi to reality.
I mean its normal that twins does have slightly different characters and outcome in life. Thus modern practitioners tries hard to find an answer to accommodate the difference in the outcome. One of the popular theory that took wave is the notion that the younger twins should be given an earlier Chinese hour.
For example, if the twin was born at 10am while the second twin was born say some minutes later (assuming natural birth), then the first twin will have born in the hour of Si 巳 while the younger twin will be assigned the earlier hour of Chen 辰.
For those not familiar with Chinese hour system, Si or Snake hour is between 9am to 10:59am. Before Si hour is the Chen hour or Dragon hour which is between 7am to 8:59am.
However, this new theory contradicts traditional rules of Bazi which says your birth hour is the hour of birth. Thus if you are born in the Si hour, thus you will be having a Si in your hour pillar. What is the rational then of pushing the younger twin one Chinese hour earlier.?
Ahok or his real name Basuki Tjahaja Purnama was born on 29 June 1966. However the hour of birth is unknown.
He is a politician and was promoted to Gabenor of Jakarta under President Joko Widodo or better known as Jokowi.
Since 2009 he entered the luck of Ji Hai 己亥. thus far 3 major things happened, become Gobenor of Jakarta, jailed of alleged blasphemy and wife had affair since 7 years ago (circa 2010). This year he filed for divorce.
He became Gabenor of Jakarta in 2014, the year of Jia Wu 甲午. Jia Wu was a repeat of his month pillar. In Bazi school it is called Fu Yin. Fu Yin is said to be bad in any Bazi but who knows, things may change in the future after some masters read this case.
Then he was involved in a blasphemy case where he was addressing a crowd back in Nov 2016 (Bing Shen 丙申) and in 2017 (Ding You 丁酉）he was trialed and found guilty and sentenced to 2 years in prison in the month of May 2017.
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.
This is an old classic management question that most management student will probably be asked in their examinations.
What is my Bazi Astrology view on this?
When we examine a Bazi we are able to tell their potential in life from the virtue of the Bazi Chart. So in some way some are pretty fated. You may cross examine back Obama and Trump or Richard Branson chart.
Since the Bazi chart is able to foretell a person’s potential, we say this person is fated to be rich or powerful or the marriage is going to be good or otherwise.
If we conclude in such manner, thus the answer is very clear that Leaders are Born!. That is a mandate of Heaven (天)
This is clearly mentioned in Di Tian Sui 滴天髓, the ancient classics of Bazi Astrology. It is known as Tian Dao (天道)

The current opposition group which comprise loosely of 3 main parties of PKR, DAP and PAS. All 3 parties have something in common and that is for people’s justice and for the betterment of the nation. The de facto leader of the loose pack of Pakatan Rakyat is Anwar Ibrahim who was the Deputy PM during the administration of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir.
A sage once met a cynical young man who wanted to outwit him in front of the villagers….
He thought to himself, “Here’s a trick to prove the old man wrong! I will ask him to predict if this little bird in my hand is dead or alive…If he says it’s alive, I will crush it to death but if he says it’s dead, I will set it free.”
So he approached the sage and asked “Oh learned one! Can you tell me if the little bird in my hand is alive or dead?”
