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.
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:
- Physiognomy – Face reading & Feng shui
- Divination – Yijing divination,
- Astrology – Fate or destiny analysis such as Bazi or Zi Wei Dou Shu.
- Medicine – Medical branch
- 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)
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.
