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.
RichardLi is the youngest Son of billionaire Li Ka Shing and was born on 8 Nov 1966.
He left home at age thirteen to be educated at Menlo School in Atherton, California.
He is well known as a person who has many ladies in his life ranging from Isabella Leung, Karmen Kwok, Rachael and many more. Some even have had children with him.
By his own indirect admission, Richard Li has confirmed what many have suspected for a long time, that he absolutely cannot get along with his father Li Ka-shing.
How does his astrology chart reveal his relationship with women ?
60 pillar reading – Xin Wei
Single pillar reading favored by some Bazi practitioners, 辛未 day pillar is said that “Marriage is good for Xin Wei. They are willing to form long lasting and stable relationships with their partner. However, early marriage is not good for them since they need time to allow to matured.”
Very clearly single pillar reading is deceiving and misleading. How can we rely on this method to dispense a crucial advice that will affect one person’s life ? Would you do it or would you like your destiny be read this way ? Continue reading “BaZi Born Rich”→
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.
