The moment you took your first breath, your ‘Heaven Luck’ was imprinted upon you through both your BaZi or 4 Pillars Astrology Chart and your personal Qi Men Dun Jia Destiny Chart as well.

BaZi means 8 words or 8 characters and is also known in English as 4 Pillars Astrology. Most people know the Chinese zodiac animal of their year of birth but we in fact have 4 animals, one for each of these 4 pillars and each animal is accompanied by one of 10 elements. With 25,920,000 possible combinations of animals and elements each BaZi chart is very specific for each person..

Using a simple chart and your birthday, determine your Chinese zodiac with Feng Shui element and brief characteristics.

A Picture Paints a Thousand Words
I have always been fascinated by the pictographic representations of nature in many aspects of Chinese culture. One of the most commonly known is of course their written language, where basic characters follow the shape of the nouns or verbs they represent and most other expressions or complex words are formed by adding up strokes to those basic characters or by combining them like building blocks.

But the pictographic representations don’t stop there, it is even more fascinating to see them in the study of Chinese Astrology BaZi, where the essence of each individual is captured in one single item in nature and pretty much any of the characteristics that one can imagine about that item, apply to the individual without mistake. It is so interesting that I invite you to try and see it for yourself.
