A lot of people have an idea of what Feng Shui is, but fairly few outside of those who are familiar with Chinese astrology know about Bazi or the Four Pillars of Destiny. If the term is translated directly to English, Bazi stands for Eight Characters or Eight Words, and it’s used to divine a person’s fate or destiny through interpreting the numbers assigned to their time and date of birth. The concept dates back to more than a thousand years ago, though the system it uses was developed in later times.
No one can choose the exact date and time of their own birth. Your Bazi according to your birth date and time might lean too much on one element or another, and you might be concerned that it will not work in your favor. If this is the case, can Feng Shui help you attain balance? Uncle Dixer has received a question from someone whose Bazi has been overwhelmed by one element. If you’re in the same boat, then you might benefit from knowing what Uncle Dixer’s advice is.
Dear Uncle Dixer: I’ve been told that my Bazi element is water and that I have too much water. My wife also has too much water. What is something that we can do to help improve and balance our lives?
Answer: In a way, you can consider Bazi as the diagnosis and Feng Shui as the prescription. If you and your wife both have too much water, then the best thing you can do is counteract this element to achieve balance. How about placing some potted plants indoors? These places include your entrance, your living and dining area, and your bathroom and toilet. This will help soak up some of the water and help improve and balance your life.
You may not have a lot of say about your Bazi and what it bodes for your fate and destiny, but you can certainly use Feng Shui to achieve the right balance. If your Bazi has too much of one element, consult with a Feng Shui expert to see how you can use Feng Shui to improve your future prospects and opportunities. These experts can give you sound advice on how to maximize what you have and make up for what you lack.
If you don’t know your Bazi or if you want to look deeper into what the future holds for you, why not get in touch with diviners and astrologers? Alternatively, you can look into practitioners that are knowledgeable in both Feng Shui and astrology to get a more holistic view of your future and what you can do about it right now. It’s also an option to learn straight from master astrologers, diviners, and Feng Shui practitioners so you’re more aware of the principles behind the suggestions you’ve been given.
