It is end of 2021 already although still not the last month of Ox year. Looking back, 2021 has been for Malaysia a pretty disruptive year with 3 months of lock down on top of the many months we were not allowed to travel outside our own districts. This is naturally very disruptive for business as well as people’s life in general.
Nonetheless, it was a time where many got a chance to learn Bazi and also a time when I started to teach online so many more are able to join to learn the Nature’s way of Bazi. Looking back the last 2 years I felt it was a blessing because many others get to learn the correct way of understanding Bazi and it is reflected on the Testimonials.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of learning bazi even more and above qi men dun jia. The ancients have always said, First is DESTINY, Second is LUCK CYCLE, Third is Feng Shui, etc. Destiny and Luck cycle is derived from BaZi.
Coming to terms with our Bazi is one of the best tool to improve life and be realistic about it. This is the concept but to arrive at the right answer, it depends on the Bazi system that you use!. Yes you hear me right, there are many Bazi systems and they are not the same!
Today I want to use one of Malaysia’s born icon as an example to demonstrate a little of Bazi.
She is Michelle Yeoh. She was born in the town of Ipoh in 1962 and the father was a politician as well as a business man. Who would have taught she would become and international star as well receive titles such as Tan Sri from the Agong? (King of Malaysia).
A very short post here to relate a real story of 2 clients whom had earlier gotten bazi reading from other masters. Later this two clients came for a BaZi consultation session with us.
Claire (not her real name) was told she had bad career and money wont come easily. When Claire met me, I told her the exact opposite and that her 10 year money luck is expiring soon. Upon hearing this she related the story of the first master to me. I told her you just need to answer me and yourself if you did well the last 10 years? She said yes because she did made a lot of money luck. Now she has re-energized herself to better make use of the last few years of money luck.
She was puzzled and ask me how come same art of Bazi but 2 extreme interpretation. Finally she became my student to better understand her destiny.
There has been a hot debate and apparently two struggles in the current BaZi market and that is between the traditionalist and contemporary practitioners. Of course over the years of effort, I am happy to note that the Traditional school has once been given more attention.
I attribute this to a few reasons. Many of my clients actually became my students over time. I think this is one of the strongest testimony of the ability of the Traditional school in particular this Nature’s Way of BaZi, how it has helped them over the years. They usually consult me more than one chart so it is not a fluke shot thing but rather there is repeatability of the result.
This is what the old saying of Actions speaks louder than Words! Need no marketing, they join the classes because they have seen it with their eyes. Same goes for our Feng Shui classes.
Second reason, I believed is because the contemporary school leans too much into motivation. It is good to give people hope and I support that but what people need is more than just hope. They need the truth!
Sometimes contemporary falsely blinded themselves. This is the joke of the modern Bazi. Some masters have good Bazi but because he/she is not well versed in traditional Bazi, this made them believed they have bad Bazi but somehow in reality, they are successful. How do even you reconcile this? Motivation or learned new skills!
Thus out of this they conclude that traditional way of Bazi reading is out, with proper motivation and learned skills anyone can succeed big time. If you are reading this and you have joined some of these BaZi schools, ask yourself honestly, how many of those around you or perhaps yourself have changed tremendously over the years?
If what they think is correct, then why do I want to learn BaZi? Just hire a business or success coach and make me successful. Why spend time and money into BaZi then in the end I would still have to motivate myself and acquire some new skills in HOPE of being successful?
This is the second video from the same series Bazi For Career.
In this video Master Alan attempts to accomplish two objectives.
1. Is BaZi reading difficult? Many Bazi students or enthusiast have been complaining that Bazi is so difficult to learn and to read.
2. A practical real example on how to use various ways to find out our suitable career based on our Bazi. Master also demonstrate how Nature’s Way Bazi is used to find our suitable career using the concept of Useful God or 用神.
Winnie Hsin 辛曉琪 is a Taiwanese singer who shot into fame at a much late age for a singer. She became famous because of one song 味道 (Scent) in 1994. Ever since then her singing career life was transformed.
She is well known for her clear and high pitch voice. If you listen to her song below you will agree that she has pretty good voice. To be a famous singer you ought to have a talent and it may it be a good voice, dancing skill and couple with a good look. Otherwise it will be just another William Hung.
So was Destiny made at birth or learned along the years? Then you have to think about voice & looks, are these qualities in born thing or can be made?. This is where I disagree with Contemporary Bazi school that destiny can be made by simply taking actions and being positive. I am not saying they don’t matter but rather over rated like a miracle pill. An unrealistic hope is like a dead end tunnel.
In 1994 she was already 31 when she got her fame. For most singers in Taiwan back then it is considered a late boomer in the industry. How come a person with a considerable good voice did not make it earlier if just by working hard and being positive could have not done the job? Lingering behind is the work of Destiny or rather in her case the Major Luck cycle.
After keeping this blog in the draft box, perhaps it’s time to release this post to public. Roger Federer has won 20 Grand Slam titles in Tennis and perhaps more to come. With such achievements, was it by chance, by personal effort or was it destined? Let’s see what ancient Chinese Astrology of Bazi has to say.
BaZi Chart of Roger Federer
What does his Natal Bazi Chart Says about his abilities? Born in Switzerland on 8 Aug 1981 in the Chen 辰 (dragon) hour, he has shown exceptional abilities in the field of Tennis sports. To obtain his chart, there are many free online Bazi Calculator that you use. Just simply fill up the birth information and choose Male for sex.
The BaZi Calculator will translate the English birth date to the Chinese Bazi Chart as shown below.
What is the definition of Useful God (UG) in the study of Bazi?
Useful God is the most important element in a Bazi or to the destiny. It is the element that makes the Day Master most useful. There are few categories of Useful God and each have their inherent role in the chart but still collectively they are referred to as Useful God or in short UG because they makes the chart good or as in a high quality chart.
A high quality chart will have a UG and this translate to a person having the capability to rise to the top or make it big in life. A bad Bazi chart will usually not have UG and thus it translate to a medium achieving person. Then worse still one has Annoying or Offending God or Ji Shen in the chart or luck, you can imagine how bad things can go.
So from here you can deduce that since it is the most important element in a chart, it must be protected at all times just like how you will protect your dearest or assets.
Happiness God 喜神
While some schools call it favourable god, I would call it the Happiness God because this is also the secondary UG. Its role is to makes the chart “happy” and that would translate to happy events coming in real life.
Having Happiness God in one’s chart is also a positive thing and will raise the gradation of the chart.
Coming back to this topic of quick Bazi reading in 5 seconds, lets continue to our traditionalist point of view in BaZi as an astrology tool. A tool used for centuries to guide human race to a better outcome. You may want to read Part 1 first if you have not.
The first quick reading is for Property one needs Earth element dominant in the chart. We attach here 2 charts belonging to property tycoon as well owners of conglomerates. Conglomerates means that they have multiple business sectors and not limited to property.
Both charts have earth but not a lot. Thus it raises the questions that if earth is the sole indicator of being a property investor or developer, then I think easily 80% of the world population could be in this field and yet there are only so little.
To be successful on stage it seems that the primary choice is to look for the “Hurt Officer God” in the chart or in short HO. For a Wu 戊 Earth person, the HO would be Xin 辛 Metal. Here is a chart of world renowned motivation guru who has written many books and constantly on stage. Why did make his success in motivation and education instead of property since he has much Earth element.
Unfortunately this chart has none as far as 3 pillars is concern and more so in the Month pillar.
Since the introduction of the internet, people are now more connected than ever before. In the past, a letter may take weeks or months to reach another person in another country. Today, it only require mere seconds. In the past, Chinese Metaphysics is a “recluse” learning subject but with advancement of internet and technology, it is now becoming more accessible to the public. People are able to converse, discuss and “spar” online on any subject and in this particular instance destiny reading / Bazi subject.
Of interest of today’s article is a Bazi chart below that has appeared under different pseudo names in different forums for at least the last 18 months.
From what can be gathered through the communications on the forums, the owner of this chart is a student of a World renown Chinese Metaphysics teacher / grand master. Since completing the course, it appears to me he is still attempting to seek guidance to determine if his chart is a special chart. In addition to that, historical forum threads indicated he has been attempting to understand why his career, marriage and wealth prospects are average. Despite various analysis by forum experts, I don’t believe to date that anyone have answered the owner’s questions to his satisfaction and his quest continues. I can relate to his frustration as Bazi study can be a frustrating exercise but yet satisfying when you able to get it right.
You probably know him from the movie Titanic (1997) or perhaps The Aviator or Blood Diamond. In Malaysia, he is famous for the The Wolf of Wall Street as it is linked to the infamous 1MDB case here. Today I want to talk a little about him and how his success was imprinted in his BaZi since the time he was born. I think it is now timely to publish this blog post after sitting in the draft cabinet for so long.
After 6 nominations since 2003 only in 2016 he finally gets the Best Actor Oscar for the movie The Revenant …Why? The answer is in the timingfrom the luck cycle and year.
From the Bazi perspective why is going to be this Luck and This Year? If you look at Leo’s Bazi, he has a very strong Useful God 用神 but unfortunately this Useful God is somewhat being weakened in his natal chart.
How is it so?
In this major luck, the coming of Mao卯, completed the 3 combination of Yin寅-Mao卯-Chen辰. Wood energy becomes very strong. This also weakens the strength of the useful God.
