Reblog-US Presidential Election 2020

Sharing an article on the recently concluded USA presidential election. Although this is a subject on Bazi Astrology , I felt that it’s worth sharing on my Feng Shui blog since these two subjects have close relations & significant impact on our lives in the real world.

This article was published long before November 3rd on our Bazi blog.

Any prediction without a comparison between the 2 person’s BaZi chart does not render much credibility thus we have done a brief analysis on both person’s Bazi.

Flying Star With Bazi

Today I would like to share a real story about this person Tin Ka ping 田家炳. Who is Tin Ka Ping?.

Tin Ka Ping GBM MBE (Chinese: 田家炳; 20 November 1919 – 10 July 2018), also known as K. P. Tin or Tian Jiabing, was a Hong Kong–Chinese businessman and philanthropist. He was the founder and chairman of Tin’s Chemical Industrial Company and the Tin Ka Ping Foundation. Tin donated billions of Hong Kong dollars and funded hundreds of schools, dozens of hospitals, and thousands of rural libraries throughout China. He was awarded numerous honours for his philanthropy, including the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, the Grand Bauhinia Medal by the Hong Kong government, a Gold Plate on Contribution to Public Welfare by President Lee Teng-hui of Taiwan, honorary citizenships by more than 80 cities, and honorary doctorate degrees by over ten universities. Chinese astronomers named the asteroid 2886 Tinkaping after him, and his childhood home in Dabu County is protected as a heritage site. (Reference: Wikipedia)

How Has Feng Shui Affected his life journey for as long he stayed there? So before we talk further lets, understand a little more of his life’s journey.

Tin Ka Ping was born in 1919 in the Hakka community of Dabu County, Meizhou, Guangdong Province. His grandfather was a Qing dynasty official who served in Henan Province and fought against the Taiping Rebellion. He was the only son of his father, a businessman who ran a grocery store and a kiln. When his father died in 1935, Tin was forced to quit school at the age of 15 to run the family business.[2][3] He went to Vietnam in 1937 to export the porcelain clay which Dabu is famous for, and soon controlled 60% of Dabu’s export business.[2] However, the Second Sino-Japanese War broke out, and in June 1939 the Imperial Japanese Army occupied Shantou, the main port in eastern Guangdong, blocking the export route from Dabu.[2] Tin moved to Indonesia in 1939 to join his cousin and helped run the latter’s metal factory. After the Surrender of Japan in 1945, he founded a factory in Jakarta to process the abundant supply of local rubber, and later expanded the business with a second factory. In 1956, he started the first plastic film factory in Indonesia.[2] Because of government policies that discriminated against Chinese Indonesians, in 1959 he left Indonesia for Hong Kong.[3] He built a factory in Tuen Mun District making plastics and artificial leather, and his Tin’s Chemical Industrial Company became a leader in Hong Kong’s chemical industry.

His major change was between 1937-1939, 1940-1959, 1960 >

Feng Shui Of Ancestral House

Since I am only expert in Flying Star Feng Shui System, I will show you the flying star chart of this building built in 1881.

This house sits Bing 丙 faces Ren 壬 has a winding road in front and making a turn just right in front of his house. Then there is a stream as well as the Han River flowing from left to right. The entrance to the house is located on the white tiger side of the house thus making the White tiger side shorter than the Green Dragon side.

Naturally I believe that his grand father was a Qing Minister surely he would have engaged a Feng Shui master to feng shui the house for his retirement. What ever method the Feng Shui master has used, I would not know but from what I am the expert at, clearly it is considered good Feng Shui house.

BaZi, Feng Shui And Superstition

Covid 19 did bring changes to the world of astrology and in this interview with Hong Kong fortune tellers they gave a frank and candid answer. I am sharing this in hope to awaken the people who has fallen deep into to superstition realm.

What is metaphysics and what is psychology and what is superstition and ignorance? There is a difference but I believe many people cannot differentiate them clearly. Perhaps let me give you some example on 2 questions that I was recently asked.

Eclipse on 21 June 2020

Some practitioners will say if you are exposed to this eclipse you will have bad luck thus better stay at home. This is superstition and ignorance not Feng Shui. Imagine every now and then there will be eclipse and how many in this world will be exposed to it simply because people like to take a glimpse of it? Will all these people have bad luck?

Eclipse is just another natural phenomena of the universe and it does bring some energy change but not as in causing bad luck to people exposed to it. I myself have been exposed to it but nothing bad has happened. So people, please wake up and not be too easily fooled by unfounded stories.

Sheng Ji & House Feng Shui

Of late people has been talking about Sheng Ji (生基) or also known as Life Grave. What exactly is a Sheng Ji? In very simple layman terms, Sheng Ji is a Feng shui technique adopted from the Yin Feng Shui or Grave Feng Shui to be used for the living person.

Does it Work?

Thus the question that many people ask is that does it work for the living person? My answer is Yes! So how great is this Sheng Ji thing since many in the past have been taught that Yin Feng Shui is very powerful and sparked the debate about which is stronger, Yang House Feng Shui or Yin House Feng Shui? Where did the public or even some practitioner got that idea from ?

It all began with …… So and So did Sheng Ji so thus why he is the richest in Macau or Hong Kong. This actor or that actress did Sheng Ji and why she is famous now and many other wonderful hopeful promises. I am not going dwell into the specifics on the technicalities of this method but just grossly explain the effects hoping people get the right idea of what is this all about in a complicated world of Feng Shui.

Divination vs Astrology

Many are confused with the difference between Divination and Astrology. This happening is, I believe due to the blurring division or definition between the two arts. Let’s examine it’s initial roots.

In Chinese metaphysics, it is divided into 5 categories and hence sometimes referred to as 5 arts of Chinese metaphysics or in short Chinese Five Arts. They are namely:

  1. Divination 卜
  2. Astrology
  3. Physiognomy 相
  4. Medicine 医
  5. Mountains 山

Thus in the past they belong to different categories of study. However, today, modern practitioners use one art for multiple purposes causing the blurring of their true purposes.

Under Astrology category are Bazi 八字 and Purple star Astrology or Zi Wei Dou Shu while under Divination are arts like Plum blossom, Wen Wang coins, Yi Jing imagery, Qi Men Dun Jia, Da Liu Ren etc.

So what is the difference between them?

Divination

This are is mainly to provide us on the moment answer to our questions we have in mind or to know the weather in the near future to assist our planning. In the old days a victory in war is very dependent on weather. A smart military strategist can use it to find out when a fog is coming to use it to their advantage for example.

Example of Qi Men Dun Jia Chart
You probably hear of Zhu Ge Liang the great military strategist who won the battle of Red cliff by using fog to “borrow a thousand arrows” from Cao Cao and also “borrowing the Eastern wind” where he launched fire boats to crush Cao Cao navy after tricking them to tie their boats together.

FENG SHUI BAZI – PART 2

Very often you hear some masters say Bazi is diagnosis while Feng Shui is remedy. Is this a true statement? Then there are masters who uses Bazi to determine the Nobleman star or Peach Blossom star then activate it in the respective sector in the house .

For example if in a person’s Bazi the Day Master is Jia 甲, then the Nobleman star is at Chou 丑 and Wei 未 sectors. If your Day Master is Xin 辛 then your nobleman star is at Wu 午 and Yin 寅 sectors of the house. They use the below compass to locate the sectors.

18-24-mountains
24 mountain of a Chinese Compass

As a teacher and practicing consultant in both Bazi and Feng Shui, I beg to differ in this viewpoint. Bazi is our astrology chart that decipher our Destiny from our date and time of birth. It tells us what our life limits are, our characters, our problems and our strengths. Feng shui on the other hand is the art of harnessing Qi from the land to benefit humans. Using the knowledge of our surrounding land and direction of our house, we contain certain types of energy in our house. This energy in our house in turns affects the outcome of our life.

This is the reason why Chinese as classify the metaphysics study into 5 categories is because they are indeed different streams of practice but uses the same fundamentals.

The 5 arts are namely:

  1. Physiognomy – Face reading & Feng shui
  2. Divination – Yijing divination,
  3. Astrology – Fate or destiny analysis such as Bazi or Zi Wei Dou Shu.
  4. Medicine – Medical branch
  5. Philosophy and Arts – Tao and martial arts.

Thus you may see that Feng Shui and Bazi belongs to different categories. Only modern “masters” mixes them together.

Here I share a real case shared to me during the consultation after I have predicted it. (Shared with permission from person)


Bazi 八字

This is the Bazi of their person. In the reading I saw this person would lose a sum of money and most likely is from the house issue.

Why in 2016 just after Li Chun the house was burglarized? This is reflected in the Bazi.

How To Help A Bad BaZi – Part II?

Well in my years of Consulting in BaZi, a common question is can we really change our Destiny? My answer is “Of Course! but to what degree?”

So if I have a Bad BaZi, what can I do? The honest answer is there are ways but it’s not all and always easy.

To understand this you will need to understand the components of Destiny. I will leave this for another posting. Briefly there are more than 10 ways of doing it and each has different degrees of effectiveness.

Our body is make of energy spectrum or some call it aura. The human aura is an biomagnetic energy and light field that surrounds the physical body.human aura

In the olden days, they use a method known as Life Grave or also known today as Sheng Ji. Sheng Ji or 生基 is a method borrowed from Yin Feng Shui or Ancestral Feng Shui. Sheng Ji is also another method they use to improve destiny luck.

How can burying one personal belonging in a grave can help improve the Destiny of a Bad BaZi? Yes indeed the mechanics is not so straight forward and sometimes appears illogical to a lay person. Of course these are trade secrets that one has to go under the guidance of a Lineage Master and it takes some time to acquire the needed skills.

The mountain range is also known as Dragons in Feng Shui Classics. Why is it called the Dragon?

Dragon

Chinese like to use the nearest resemblance to describe a situation or phenomena. Dragons in Chinese culture symbolized the heavenly creature and lives in the heaven. It is seen as a magical creature represents the kingdom of heaven.

Only emperors or royal families are allowed to don the robe with Dragons.

Qi is described as the breath of Dragon, is the essence to changing one’s destiny. This Qi or energy affects our personal belongings that contains our DNA.

This repeated and prolonged process of the Dragon’s breath of interacting with our DNA, changes it’s energy profile and then is transmitted back to us to help reshape our Destiny over time.

What effects it brings will depend on the land formation of all the Main Dragon and the surrounding Dragons and water ways.

Traditionally the main purpose of life grave is for longevity thus calling it Life Grave, meaning Life extension Grave. So it’s extending, not living for eternity! If you want to live for eternity, one has to thread the heavenly path like the Buddha or Jesus. Just as we know Feng Shui does not defy gravity so to speak.

Here is an article that I have written about the current president of Taiwan family.

Superstitious Star In Bazi

I guess there is some amount of superstition in us, some has more while some to a lesser degree. Cambridge dictionary defines superstition as “belief that is not based on human reasoning or scientific knowledge”.

Superstition is something common in all cultures, some has more while some lesser. Chinese in particular has very strong rooting in superstition beliefs and throughout the centuries it has become so part of us that today it becomes so hard to differentiate between, culture, religion and the art of Chinese metaphysics studies. For example, the symbol of Taiji is primarily used in Daoism as well as in I-Ching studies. If one looks at it from the I-Ching angle, then it is just a symbol with a profound meaning behind. However many people confused themselves that Chinese metaphysics is related to Daoism.

Is there a Superstitious Star in Bazi?

Today I would like to discuss a little about the Bazi of Nina Wang. Nina after her death, her lover Tony Chan was sued in court in Hong Kong by her siblings because they believe that Tony has faked the will. Indeed, the court found him guilty and he was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

What was interesting is that Tony claimed to be a Feng Shui master and during the proceeding, he revealed how he knew Nina and how they have fall in love and the level of intimacy just to win the case and claim all her wealth. Later it was found that he is not a true Feng Shui master but rather a Mix art practitioner. Tony engaged famous master Joseph Yu of Canada as expert witness while Nina’s siblings engaged Master SzeTo Fa Zhen (司徒法正) as their expert witness.

Quick Pick Bazi Knowledge on Marriage (For Men)

Very often men hope to find a good wife while a lady would wanted the same. Traditionally and perhaps till today in most cultures which still practices, man are the head of the family. Thus wife is always to follow husband. There is a saying that “Behind every successful man is a supportive Wife”. It is also reflected in Bazi the art of Chinese Astrology.

Astrology or Bazi is one good tool to help identify what makes up a good or compatible wife based on ancient values. This is why in the olden days before any marriage they either have the elders fix the marriage or a professional match maker to match their couple’s Bazi for compatibility.

HS Factor

Themed the Fight of the Century, Manny Pacquiao is to face it out with Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas on the 2 May 2015. Two world champions in the Welterweight category.

At the same time, so much anticipation from the Chinese metaphysics circle as to who will triumph! Before we go into the technicalities of Bazi analysis, let’s have look at both of their profiles.

Physically both of them are not of much difference. Floyd has a slightly longer reach and taller. Age wise both of them are just 1 year apart with Floyd one year older. Both have impressive records.

The entire fight, Manny was the aggressor while Floyd was dodging and punching only when he felt right. In the end, Floyd won by unanimous decision by the judges. Although many of Manny’s fan was not very happy but again, the result is result no matter how the people felt.

Here is how I derived the prediction:
We do not have their hour of birth but let’s see their Bazi based on 3 Pillars. We began with Manny:

Manny is a Gui 癸 Day master born in the year of the horse and during with Winter month. This type of chart is best to see Bing 丙 Fire to warm the environment. He has both the 7Killing and Direct Officer DO in his chart but the Direct officer is being controlled by the Hurting officer HO.
When HO controls a DO, the DO is rendered useless and usually this indicates a action orientated person with good talent.
Manny money Wu 午 is being clashed by the Zi 子, which makes him less interested in money but more focused on friend or family.
