Brief History of Zi Wei Dou Shu Part 2

Slide 19

Slide 19Commentary – Next, look out for the locations of stars that come in pairs. When a pair of stars are found in the Matrix, they give synergy. In this illustration, the Left Deputy Zuofu and the Right Deputy Youbi each affects the domains where they are placed, but the domain represent by the star symbol gets the most benefits.

Commentary – This means that the interpretation of a ZWDS chart must not be done on individual domains only. In this illustration, Career Domain directly shows what industry or what sector is good for the subject, whether it is appropriate for him/her to take up a business or stay employed. However, his/her luck with money (Wealth Domain) also has a major influence on the job/business he takes on, while his/her personality (Self Domain) also plays a vital part in his/her rate of success in certain fields of job/business.

Commentary – With the availability of the enormous information ZWDS can provide, it is easy to fall into traps of such thought that we are unable to change our life or dictate our future – because so much have been written. Rather, the idea should be the other way round that we can make full use of the information to maximise our potential and to minimise risks and avoid pitfalls in life. The future is in our own hands. The next phase of slides illustrate this philosophy well.

Commentary – This is familiar to all of us, is it not? Their weight of influence on our lives is the heaviest from the top down, while the amount of control we can exert over them is the biggest from the bottom up. To me, it is more critical to find out our likely trends first than to talk about Feng Shui. For instance, when both the structural trends and the cycle luck of Estates Domain is good, it is easier for us to get a good house and good Fengshui. When they are the reverse, it is easier for us to get a bad settlement and bad Fengshui. Modern applications of ZWDS:

Commentary – Personality analysis. This is a chart of a young engineer. Passion Star Lianzhen and Pleasure Star Tanlang are about Peach Blossom luck and represent talent. When they are found to be in a combination like this, however, it indicates a free soul who prefers to wander than to get tied down, to express freely than to be meticulous, to be creative than to follow rules. Together with the pair of Interference Stars, Dikong and Dijie flanking the Self Domain, this quality is even more exaggerated. Do they fit the description of an engineer? The young man is already very frustrated with his daily work two years into the profession. This is a result of wrong guidance from the parents who wanted their children to have their (parents) choices of professions. What should he do now, especially in a society that is very restrictive? I have found out what his true talents are, and have encouraged him to indulge in those artistic talents over the weekends. This aims to balance his life.

Commentary – Personality analysis. This is the chart of the younger sister of the engineer, who is about to make a choice of study course. The mother wanted her to be a teacher, but she has wished to be in hospitality trades. In fact, the girl offered to pay me extra to dissuade her mother. I have told her there was no such necessity, as the combinations of her chart show that she would excel in tourism studies/work.

Commentary – Potential maximisation. When ZWDS is the most powerful in providing details about personality, it naturally helps to identify the best type of profession/business. Chief Advisor Tianji and Inspector Tianliang combines shows a clear and meticulous mind sharp in picking up details instantaneously. Combining with the stars found in the Career Domain, it is only appropriate that the subject is in the legal profession.

Commentary – Potential maximisation. This chart shows that the subject is born with the natural capacity of a business person. In fact, she was a home-maker because the husband was doing well, and she did not need to work. After the children have grown up, she started some business in a very small way but it grew naturally. In about ten years, she has four branches.

Commentary – Risk identification. With the power to go for details, ZWDS is certainly helpful for this function. Slide 32 shows a typical structure that the subject will be ultimately betrayed by the partner, while the initial period (a year, two years, etc.) does provide good returns.

Commentary – This is the same chart as in Slide 29. While the lawyer can excel in his profession well, he is to avoid investments, reading from his Wealth Domain.

Commentary – As ZWDS also provides details in periodic luck, it is an excellent instrument to help us in deciding the right timing. Slide 36 is the chart of young entrepreneur whose turnover met the qualification of the Young Entrepreneur Award if he were to submit his application. As he was sort of working for his family business, he

wished to strike out totally on his own when he was 29. Going with the periodic luck, the Seal Minister Tianxiang indicates the luck of a number two instead of the luck of a leader. The advice was to put the idea off until his next decade. Meanwhile I have advised him to make use of the remaining years in the current period to learn all he can.

Commentary – This is from a chart that is structurally good, but the subject has made an investment in real estates during the period. Although that is the only one major mistake, it has also cause some great anxiety.

Commentary- Life Crisis Management. Likewise, prior information is the key here. We can work out the best solutions to a problem, and also find out the duration of a crisis.

Commentary- Compatibility Studies. Due to exactly its power to read personality and luck cycles, ZWDS is useful for studying the compatibility of business partners and marriage partners.

Commentary- Marital Counselling. ZWDS is an effective tool to carry out what I call alternative counselling, because it presents two people stripped nakedly in terms of personality. From there, their expectations in life and their expectations of a relationship can be described clearly. When they hear these from a third party, they are more willing to pay attention clearly. With the additional descriptions of what are the possible problems in the future, and in specific time frames, the prior information helps two people work better for the relationship. It is like they have found out what might be in store, and I have always encouraged them to take it as a task to overcome an issue or a bad patch in the future hand in hand. With the right

intention and in the right frame of mind, we can alter course, or minimise the negative impact of a potential problem.

Commentary- The 32 Main Stars have different degrees of brightness when they are placed in different positions. A bright star is able to show more of its strength while its weaknesses is minimised. A dim star manifests more of its weaknesses while its strength is reduced. There are altogether six or seven levels of brightness (left box), but I advocate simplifying them to a total of three (right box). There is no real requirement to go for such detailed grading, and we can afford to make learning ZWDS slightly easier.
