Some common questions:
1. Can you change your Bazi or Zi Wei Dou Shu Chart?
No, you cannot change your fate and destiny, but you can alter your destiny luck in the post-born cycles as shown with your Bazi in the Zi Wei Dou Shu chart. This is explained in the “Winning Destiny with Zi Wei Dou Shu” e-book.
2. If I cannot change my Bazi in Zi Wei Dou Shu, am I doomed for life if it is bad?
No, your Bazi in Zi Wei Dou Shu is a ‘blue-print’ of your destiny at birth. You cannot change fate, but you can alter destiny in the post-born luck cycles. Meaning, you can choose as in your own freewill to alter events if negative. Therefore, it is to your advantage to know your pre-born and post-born destiny in your Zi Wei Dou Shu chart.
3. Can Zi Wei Dou Shu help me in making money?
Yes, and No. This is dependent on the luck cycles of an individual. There are Golden Luck Cycle periods, or there may not be. If the Ten-Years Luck cycle is positive, then it is possible to identify the year, the specific role, and industries where money can be achieved. However, it can be a positive or a negative cycle. If it is a negative luck cycle where earning money is concerned, it can be altered.
You cannot change your Zi Wei Dou Shu chart, but you can alter it when you know your chart -to engage or not to engage in that luck cycle event. Furthermore, if there is a clash from the Wealth Palace to its related palaces, then money issues are considered negative. Similarly, if there is a Self-Hua Ji in the Wealth palace, then it could also be negative. However, this depends on how money is accumulated, or earned. I have come across a client (a CEO) with a Self Hua Ji in the Wealth Palace, but money was positive with a related Star to the activities of a public listed company.
Generally, if the Decade Wealth Palace Hua Ji to the Friends Palace, and clashes the Sibling Palace, then this is considered negative. On the other hand, if the Decade Wealth Palace Hua Lu to an internal palace, especially with a wealth related star, then it is positive. These are just some basic analysis. More advanced techniques offer better justifications.
4. Is the Hua Ji catalyst bad in ZWDS?
No, not necessarily. The common perception is that the Hua Ji Catalyst is bad in ZWDS. Hua Ji refers to obstacles, reduction, problems, etc. However, the inference of Hua Ji can be positive depending on what is being analyzed. For example, read this post about attaining wealth in the luck cycles (advanced technique inferences). However, if a star has a Self Hua Ji in the Ten-Years (Decade) Wealth Palace, as shown in a specific year, then it is better to avoid engaging in those activities related to that Star. The characteristics of each Star to its respective Palaces are listed in the e-book at the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store. There are people out there whom have lost thousands and thousands of dollars due to Tian Tong and was engaging in either gambling or of that nature, for example.
5. Can Zi Wei Dou Shu help me in choosing professional career choices?
Yes, your Zi Wei Dou Shu chart can help identify which career choices or industries offers a better fit for you. Accordingly, you can choose to study in a program related to your destiny that would lead to a successful career progression after completion (if you are in or going to college).
Similarly, if you are not currently in college, you can still alter your destiny by working in the field/industries, and in a job role most suitable for you. For example, if your Career Palace has a Ju Men Star residing in it, you would become more successful working in a Ju Men related professions. Refer to the app e-book on Chapter 14 Career Palace ..pp.116-119 for a basic inference. However, we should further clarify with the ‘Si Hua’ Flying techniques to justify for a clearer conclusion (if that career choice is most suitable for you).
What are the major differences between Bazi (Four Pillars) and ZWDS (Zi Wei Dou Shu: Purple Star Astrology aka Emperor Star Astrology)?
If you are familiar with Chinese Metaphysics, you would have heard of these two different school’s of thought in analyzing an individual’s life destiny. These two schools do offer some similarities, but yet there are some differences as well.
Bazi (Four Pillars) is pretty well known in the marketplace, plenty of Bazi practitioners or consultants, and commonly available to learn in many countries. As a result, common people would learn Bazi as it is commonly known and available. Some enthusiasts of Chinese Metaphysics may learn both Bazi and ZWDS, while others may choose to specialized in either one, thereby developing deeper practical skills and experiences over time. Both schools of thought offers some similarities by utilizing the Earthly Branches, and Heavenly Stems in generating a blueprint of a destiny chart. The basic principle is to forecast, analyze, and predict on a person’s life and destiny.
However, the difference is that Bazi is perceived to be easier to learn initially, but would encounter bottlenecks when it comes to detail specifics of events like ZWDS can. Therefore, many Bazi learners will eventually be confused by the difficulties of analysis into detailed events. Furthermore, Bazi can offer general insights into a person’s destiny without the hour of birth pillar, but ZWDS requires the date and the time of birth.
On the other hand, ZWDS is not commonly known, appears to be difficult to learn, requiring one to understand the principles, memorizing some formulae, but is much easier to grasp the underlying formulation with practice. Bazi is capable to offer a broader general view of circumstances, whereas ZWDS is capable to fine-tuning into specifics of the circumstance, and why it occurred (allowing highly detailed specifics into the minutes of occurrence to events). Furthermore, the Flying Star ZWDS secrets lies in the Palatial Transformation, many other underlying principles and frameworks, and layers to decode destiny.
Another difference is that Bazi utilizes the same fundamentals in other broad Chinese Metaphysics subjects, but in ZWDS these other fundamentals are lightly introduced. The reason is that ZWDS is unique in itself, encompassing its own fundamentals, formulae, principles, and conceptual framework in deciphering life destiny.
However, there is something to ponder upon here. For thousands of years Si Hua Flying Star ZWDS (Purple Star Astrology aka Emperor Star Astrology) is only kept secretive, and selfishly by the Imperial Astronomers to be used exclusively only by the ancient Chinese Emperors in forecasting destiny, whereas Bazi is commonly available as a destiny tool to the commoners in ancient Chinese communities for thousands of years. Why do you think it is so?
At the end of it all, these two school’s of thought offers some really good knowledge, and skills to be acquired in life destiny analysis. Whichever life destiny system you choose to delve deeper into is your choice, and the availability to learn in your location. There are plenty of articles on the web outlining the differences between Bazi and ZWDS.
There is no need to debate which is the ‘cream of the crop’ system in life destiny analysis. Research, practice, and judge it by yourself. You own it to yourself to explore the opportunities and possibilities that this world has to offer. Isn’t life interesting?
