BaZi | Four Pillars of Destiny

Four Pillars of Destiny

Four Pillars of Destiny, BaZi show how the weight distribution of the five elements is for your person – which is very important. When the five elements are in harmony and balance, you will have luck and prosperity. Conversely, you will experience resistance and difficulties when they are not in balance. So it’s about bringing your elements into balance.

You can find how the weight distribution of the five elements is for you by drawing up a BaZi diagram. Based on your time and place of birth, the four columns (year, month, day, hour) are drawn up and these are converted using the Chinese calendar into a weight distribution for the five elements.

And your lucky element

The Four Pillars, The Eight Signs, The Four Pillars of Destiny, Ba Zi, are essentially about getting the five elements to be in balance with each other. When the five elements are in harmony they will bring you prosperity and luck. When they are in conflict with each other, they will create problems and accidents.

The constellation of the five elements that you are associated with based on your time of birth will either harmonize or be in conflict with the constellation of the five elements that your lover, your boss or your mother-in-law, etc. have!

Since a weight distribution of the five elements is associated with all people based on their time of birth, you can analyze how your weight distribution of the five elements is when it is combined with other people’s weight distribution.

And since times are also associated with a weight distribution of the five elements, you can also analyze whether any time is favorable or unfavorable for you.

All the analyzes follow the same procedure. You look at how your constellation fits together with the constellation of the five elements that are associated with what is being analyzed – which can be, for example, another person or time.

Your lucky element has the lowest score in table “Eight characters”. So find this and then it applies that you strengthen this element in your home, by colors you dress with, by compass directions you work in etc.
