Many are confused over the Career Palace. Should it be the hour pillar or month pillar? Honestly, I was rather surprised when many of Baziconsult Facebook group members asked me about this.
This is crucial simply because we are dealing with a destiny of a person. A decision made because of different information received will result in a different actions and eventually a different OUTCOME. Its like the Iraq war where so many thousands was killed because US and their ally received wrong intelligence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. It turned out to be none but after so many lost of innocent human lives.
?? HOUR OR MONTH ??
Perhaps the Contemporary Bazi school uses this because of a different understanding of the knowledge of BaZi or perhaps they have based it on a few samples of BaZi to conclude.
Contemporary school – Month Pillar
Some schools advocates this pillar as the a career pillar simply because its the strongest pillar strength. Why strongest?. This is because the system of Bazi that says the month of birth decides the season and season decides the strength of the 5 elements.
Then, blend in a little behavioral (motivation) theory, they believe one should work on your strength rather than weakness. Let’s take an easy example :
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.
A modern Bazi practitioner will probably will hear of this term Qi Sha or translated literally as Seven Killings. Qi Sha carries a very negative connotation at least to some schools of Bazi. It usually being depicted as meaning legal issues, accidents, disasters, death, danger, health issues coming.
I always have half past six enthusiast coming perplexing about Qi Sha. So perhaps I should write something on this blog to clear a little although many probably will still be happy living a little stressed.
Lets Define Qi Sha in the Context of 10 Gods
Qi Sha is the element or God that controls the Day Master and yas the same Yin Yang polarity as the Day Master. So for example for a Jia 甲 Wood day master the Qi Sha element is the Geng 庚 Metal. Another example would be for a Gui 癸 Water day master the Qi Sha element is the Ji 己 Earth.
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.
Why do ancient Chinese parents wants to read the Bazi of their future son or daughter in law and match it to their children? This is because they believe that being foretold is to prevent simply because human is actionable being and not a tree. While we may not able about everything, we can certainly minimize the impact of the problems.
Marriage is a very important decision in one’s life. In Chinese philosophy, there is a saying:
Meeting the Wrong Person at the Wrong time brings Disaster.
Meeting the Right Person at the Wrong time brings Regret. Meeting the Wrong Person at the Right time brings Pain and Sadness.
Meeting the Right Person at the Right time is called Happy & Fulfilling Life.
Many people are suffering in silence after years in marriage and seeking family counseling, some go for religious counseling, some turn to radio programs to vent their frustrations and of course friends and Bazi Consultant too are not spared.
Thus you can imagine the impact of that decision. In the spur of the moment one proposes a marriage or to say “Yes!” changes the course of one’s life. This is precisely in the ideology of Bazi can never be 100% accurate especially when reading on the subject of marriage. The other part of the answer actually lies in your future partner’s Bazi.
One may marry a rich husband but he is a bully! While you may read from your Bazi that you will have a rich husband, what’s the point since you have not known that he is actually a bully!
One also may wonder, before marriage he was a nicest man on earth but now he is a different person. That is because in Bazi there are 3 ways to tell the quality of the spouse. The 2 most commonly known method are the Spouse Palace and the Direct Officer.
This is a Chart of women who married a husband and found out later that he was only after her money. In BaZi Astrology this can be seen from her chart. If she has already known about it way before marriage, perhaps it would be other options that she could have chosen.
While the actions may not fully avoid this type of husband since emotions does run high when one is in love 😍, sometimes even with early warning one still chooses to thread the path.
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】
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”.
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.?
