Four pillars of destiny or BaZi is one of the most accurate fortune readings in Chinese metaphysic. It is based on the five element theory (water, wood, fire, earth and metal) and the 12 zodiac signs (Rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig).
The chart that will be created will have four pillars and is based on the person’s birth date and location. The pillars are organized in the order of hour, day, months, and year and each pillar provides information about a different life aspect.
The combination of the above information will reveal the destiny chart of a person.
Through the chart, you will get to know the personality type, his or her relationship with others, marriage aspect, career situation, health issues, previous life events and the upcoming episodes in his or her future.
In the Chinese belief system everyone is born with certain parameter in his or her life and other cultures might call this karma.
Although we may not be able to change everything in our destiny life, in my opinion it is very important to understand what we are going through, why certain events (good or bad) have happened in our life, and how we can have an impact on the future to achieve better result.
Through the process of chart reading, one can learn about the cycle of his or her luck, when are the time that he is facing a smooth curve in his life path and when he should be more tolerance and stay away from obstacles.
Just imagine if you knew tomorrow might be rainy, you will take an umbrella with you or you might just plan your day differently. This is similar to the destiny chart reading as it will prepare you for what is coming through your way and then it’s up to you how to deal with it.
The question I get asked most is if the chart is supporting the relationship and some even ask if their partner is cheating. Unfortunately four pillars of destiny can answer this question. Comparing the chart of both partners can clearly show how the life developing for both and you can highlight times when the relationship will be challenged.
In case you got curious, you can calculate your own BaZi chart, you can do so on my web site http://proshatlehmann.com/bazi-calculator/.
In the four-pillar chart there are four columns and if you want to know if the person is faithful or not you should first check the year pillar and then check the hour pillar.
Here are the constellations:
Birth Year Hour Pillar
Monkey, Rat, Dragon Rooster
Tiger, Horse, Dog Rabbit
Pig, Rabbit, Goat Rat
Snake, Rooster, Ox Horse
Obliviously there are more aspects that you should consider in the four pillars of destiny chart and you should not put to much weight only on this combination.
