“BAZI”- Four Pillers of Destiny

“MING LI” Therory of Life

Life is full of decisions and we are constantly striving to find new ways and new tools to help us make better decisions.

This is what BaZi; Four Pillars of Destiny is about. Learning how to understand our destiny in order to make better more informed decisions.

The Four Pillars of Destiny is a traditional method of analysing human fortune.

Pillars of Destiny analysis helps to achieve a deeper understanding of our self, the people in our surroundings and factors affecting our achievements in life.

We all want answers. Answers to what life holds in store for us, about our true potential and the extent of our abilities. These answers lie within our BaZi – Four Pillars of Destiny.

Four Pillars of Destiny is the most fascinating and unique system of Chinese fortune telling.

The Chinese have employed this system for thousands of years and it’s influences can be found in all walks of Chinese life.

The system is unique, logical, convenient and accurate and is the most respected and widely used system in Chinese metaphysics.

To explain it in a very simplified way, the Chinese believe that everything in the world is made up of five basic components, called the five elements, as explained within your Feng Shui chart.

They are represented by the common objects of metal, wood, water, fire and earth.

These elements are not chaotic, they are constantly interacting with one another according to some basic laws.

As human beings we are members of nature, as such our bodies and our destinies, are also made up of the same five basic elements.

This means our thinking and our actions are also governed by the basic laws of the five elements.

By studying the composition of the five elements, we can understand our behaviour, personality, directions of development in life, and our destiny.


The subject “Four Pillars of Destiny” has a long history and has a profound influence in Chinese culture. It is a unique system based on a person’s birthday.

Our birth data holds four vital pieces of information – the year, the month, the day and the hour. This information is like a blueprint of the components in a person’s life.

The system is also referred to as BaZi, meaning eight characters.

In the Chinese calendar, the birth data of the year, month, day and hour are presented in eight Chinese characters.

BaZi – Four Pillars of Destiny, is a very deep-rooted and trusted subject in Chinese culture. Its influence can easily be traced in all walks of life.

Before conducting anything important, the Chinese like to choose the auspicious day and hour to make sure all goes smoothly.

A very common saying is that there are 3 kinds of luck:

Heaven Luck – the destiny luck you are born with.

Man Luck – the luck you make for yourself.

Earth Luck – the luck you can change within your environment and knowledge of Feng Shui.

These kinds of luck are considered to be the essential factors contributing to a person’s success in life.

Destiny is the birth data. It is your inborn quality, your personality, style, career direction, even your appearance and health.

Your background and relationships with others all show in the Four Pillars.

We grow up, we have different experiences, and influences throughout our lives. These influences are called luck.

Many people may think luck is like chance, the opportunities we encounter at different times in life.

It seems to be random and coincidental. However if you believe in the Four Pillars you realise there is no random factor in life. As Einstein said “God does not play dice”.

Everything in the universe is governed by physical laws. We believe the same in Four Pillars. Luck is not random, it is actually predictable.

The system gives luck pillars which will show the pattern of life, the up and down cycles from beginning to end.

As soon as a person is born, we can actually forecast one’s luck in the future and at different stages of their life.

With your luck pillars you will see what lays ahead for you.
