Chances are you have glimpsed at the horoscope in the newspaper or magazine you've been reading, curious to find out what the day or month holds for you. Either for entertainment or serious consideration, it is human nature to be curious about what the future brings.
There are a variety of astrology systems that experts study to develop horoscopes and forecasts. The most popular and commonly known ones are the Western Astrology system, which is based on your month of birth and assigns you a zodiac sign such as Capricorn, Aquarius, or Aries; and the Chinese Astrology system, which is based on your year of birth and assigns you an animal zodiac such as Rat, Ox, Tiger, or Rabbit.
The horoscopes you find in many publications are presented in a lighthearted manner and present astrology on a very general, superficial level because they apply to the masses. Few people understand the detail that can be revealed in calculating full birth charts - known as the Zi Wei Dou Shu - and thus the power of astrology in their life.
The Zi Wei Dou Shu is the highest form of astrological birth charts and calculates the positions of over 116 stars in the constellations based on your date, time, and location of birth. It is a statistical record of cosmic energies that existed at your specific moment of birth. When interpreted by an expert, the Zi Wei Dou Shu has an accuracy rate of about 80-90%. However, remember that it is still only one of 130 factors that influence your life.
Consider it your good karma that you came upon this article to learn about the Zi Wei Dou Shu and its benefits. Although the Zi Wei Dou Shu is of Chinese origin, not many Chinese people know about it. About 99% of all people do not really know what it is and that is why many people face a challenging life.
The Zi Wei Dou Shu provides invaluable insight into your life that helps you avoid great setbacks and problems. People generally do not know what tomorrow will bring, thus they are not always prepared and go about their life not knowing how to avoid problems, sickness, conflicts, disaster, gossip, cancer, car accident, and divorce. It is like trying to get somewhere without a map to guide you. Life becomes rather trial and error.
As you progress through the journey of life, you will undoubtedly encounter people and situations related to your karma. In some cases, you may find there are a lot of bumps or potholes in your path in the form of challenges in your career, relationships, or family. You may not understand why there are so many obstacles blocking your way.
One of the reasons you come into this life is to pay back, give back, and to learn. Learn to appreciate everything. If someone or something gives you a hard time, appreciate it, for it gives you the opportunity to improve yourself, to self-reflect, and to make changes. If you do not learn from the hard knocks, you will continue to face these challenges until you do. Checking your birth chart and exploring your life's path will help you understand your challenges and perhaps avoid negative energies before they affect you.
Many people hesitate at knowing their future. Fearing their destiny may be bad, they prefer to go through life without knowing what lies in their path. The Zi Wei Dou Shu is an objective guideline that gives you insight and direction in your life. Ultimately, you still have your own will to make your own decisions.
Like a map of your life, your birth chart cites where you might encounter dead ends and what directions to take towards positive destinations. Can you imagine the time, energy, money, stress, and heartache you could save if you were able to avoid the wrong relationships, careers, business partners, or studies and head towards the right ones? A birth chart reading is a definite step in the right direction.
Astrology is a science that charts the movement of the stars, planets, and constellations, and reveals how their movement impacts your life. The Zi Wei Dou Shu birth chart calculates the movement of 116 stars into twelve sectors, or aspects of your life, and considers monthly, annual and ten-year cycles. The following is a general overview of these twelve sectors.
- Ming Gong - Vital Energy Sector. This sector reveals your personality, mannerisms, abilities, compatible careers, strength of will and ambition, and tells you about what is predestined for you by providing a life overview. You can tell if a person is smart, ignorant, lazy, or driven by the stars in this sector.
- Xiong Di Gong - Sibling Sector. The stars here will tell you what kind of relationship you have with your siblings and can also indicate your siblings' achievements and career.
- Fu Qi Gong - Spouse Sector. This sector indicates the relationship potential with your lovers or spouse. It reveals the quality and level of love and whether there is fighting, abuse, or great understanding. When certain stars appear in this sector, it can also indicate your partner's sexual tendency. Your Spouse Sector can tell you about the number of marriages or serious relationships you may have, and if marriage is not likely for you. The kind of man or woman that is compatible to you shows up here.
- Zi Nu Gong - Children Sector. Your child's achievement, number of children you may have, and the general quality of your children is shown in this sector.
- Chai Gong - Money Sector. This sector relates to your income potential and where your money comes from. You will discover if you acquire your wealth through wages, through investment, gambling, or from running your own business.
- Ji Er Gong - Ailment Sector. This sector tells of your health potential, the areas and cause of ailments, and whether you are prone to physical problems due to genes, allergies, asthma, accident, habit, or hygiene.
- Qian Yi Gong - Travel Sector. Your life's potential for travel, relocation, or moving is shown in this sector.
- Pu Yi Gong - Helpful People Sector. These stars reveal the quality of friends, partnerships, and social relationships you potentially attract. It is helpful in determining whether or not you should have employees or partnerships.
- Kuan Lu - Career Sector. One of the most important sectors, it shows what field is compatible to you. This knowledge prevents you from getting lost and allows you to be successful. It reveals the types of jobs and the ideal level or position you are likely to take - whether you should be an employee or the boss.
- Tian Zai - Property Sector. This sector relates to the quality and quantity of your property. It can show if you should own hotels, houses, land, apartments, or nothing. If you are not meant to own property and you do own some, you will likely have real estate problems. It also shows what type and size of home you should have.
- Fu De Gong - Luck Moral Karma Sector. Your peace, wealth, longevity and level of karma bond are indicated in this sector. This knowledge is especially important for women and seniors as good stars here indicate a good wife and long life.
- Fu Mu Gong - Parent/Ancestor/Inheritance/Gene Sector. The Parent Sector reveals your relationship with your parents during childhood and whether they are likely to divorce, live a long life, be poor, possess high intelligence, be wealthy, or common people.
Few people understand the science behind astrology and how an expert reading is a message from the future and the past that helps you in the present. Many people still think of it as a mystical practice related to supernatural phenomena and worry about what other people might think.
Share this benefit with others and let them see what a truly profound tool it is so they can benefit from it. Be the person who helps turn a friend's or relative's life around. They will be so grateful for your sharing. In short, the Zi Wei Dou Shu birth chart is a life compass. It is a wonderful, precious gift passed down to you from your predecessors for your benefit.
Birth chart readings are most beneficial during turning points or milestones in your life when the decisions you make are crucial. Although birth charts are considered predestined, parents can pre-select an ideal birth chart and make sure their child is born at that exact time. This is usually only possible through c-section deliveries when the timing can be controlled.
Whether or not the parents have controlled the exact time of birth, it is helpful to read a child's birth chart at birth. The main purpose of an early birth chart reading is to understand the child's personality, and health needs, and for awareness of potential dangers to avoid. Early knowledge of a child's potential, talents, and temperament can help parents better understand how to cater to their child's development.
One of the most crucial times in life is beginning any higher education that leads toward a career. Consult your birth chart as you prepare for college, whether in the last years of high school or as an adult, to confirm your interests and skills, or to guide you if you are uncertain. A birth chart reveals the strongest major for you, what type of college to attend, and where to focus your efforts.
Many young adults are often pressured by their parents to get degrees in fields that may not be compatible to them. The student then suffers in their studies, feels lost, lacks self-esteem, and ends up misdirected and frustrated as they begin their adult life. Birth chart guidance can save precious time, money, and possible resentment for the parent and their young adult.
Before getting married - in fact, even before you get too serious with someone, it is wise to do a compatibility birth chart reading to understand the true purpose of your individual lives and your relationship. Every relationship is the result of a karmic bond from previous lives. Not everyone is meant to marry, thus not every relationship's purpose is a lifetime of marriage. Some people find this a daunting discovery, but in our experience it is far better to know this than to get hurt over and over again, making the same mistakes and living a life distracted by love relationships.
Your birth chart reveals when you are likely to have relationships and what type of relationship it is - is it a lover, a fling, an affair, or a soul mate? You will know when to pay attention and when not to succumb to temptation. Most importantly, you can be realistic and understand whether you are better suited to long-term, short term, or open relationships. This can prevent unreasonable expectations. Knowing the purpose of your relationship, you are better able to achieve closure when you go your separate ways if the time comes, rather than being held back by a long period of resentment or loss.
Every relationship happens for a reason and this has to do with previous life karma. When a birth chart is done for you and your significant other, your karmic bond can be calculated. Karmic bond is the length of time that two people are connected and likely to remain together in a relationship. Depending on what debt is owed, a relationship may last one month, one year, five years, ten years, or more. A relationship in this lifetime may occur to complete what was not finished in a previous lifetime, to teach or to learn a lesson, or pay or receive what's due.
Besides the compatibility and term of your relationship, doing your significant other's birth chart allows you to see if they have characteristics that match you. Are they spiritual, adventurous, tricky, sensual, candid, or opinionated? Does their spouse sector show that they will have a stable marriage or an adulterous one? Will they be successful or challenged in their career? Do they have good children? Do they have a solid family background? Birth charts reveal all of this and more. While everyone has different tolerance levels, this awareness helps you make crucial relationship decisions and overcome relationship challenges that can impact your entire life.
One of the most useful aspects of the Zi Wei Dou Shu birth chart is its ability to offer guidance in your career and confirm where your true passion lies. Many clients come to us with questions regarding their job. As it turns out, many people are not compatible with the career path they chose. When you are not able to put your heart into your work, you become unhappy, stressed, exhausted, and financially strained, pulling your relationships and health down as well. Over time, this negativity attracts challenges, troublemakers, theft, gossip, complaints, and oftentimes penalties or lawsuits. As your self-esteem wears away, life feels meaningless.
To be successful, it is vital to know if the field and position you select are compatible to you. Your birth chart tells you if are most likely to be successful climbing the corporate ladder or creating your own enterprise. It reveals fields that match your temperament and areas where you will shine. When you are working in a compatible field that matches your expertise and personality, and are in the right position, you will likely achieve success.
Your birth chart also points out what obstacles and struggles you need to watch out for. If your Friendship Sector contains negative stars indicating betrayal, you will do best to avoid partnerships in your business to sidestep the potential of someone betraying you. On the other hand, your chart may tell you that your career success is dependent upon your friends and partners. If this is the case, then you know that collaboration with the right partners will make you stronger.
If your Money Sector shows a gambling streak without returns, you should avoid speculative investments to minimize loss. If it shows that your income potential is in the six digits and you are only earning five, you are shortchanging your potential. With this information you gain confidence in reaching even further, knowing that the stars support you. Similarly, your chart can tell if you will potentially earn income from investments, side businesses, or as a beneficiary. Knowing where your money comes from and which fields match you, allows you to correctly focus your career priorities and energy. If your birth chart shows that your wealth comes late in your life, this awareness motivates you to make feng shui and personal adjustments to attract the wealth energy into your life sooner.
Your birth chart will reveal what city, state, region, and country is strongest for you to do your business. For example, if you live in Los Angeles and your birth chart shows that Los Angeles is not the best place for you to establish your business, you will find that no matter how much marketing you do to promote your business, or how good your feng shui is, you still encounter obstacles and struggle. Your birth chart may show that you do better on the east coast or in Asia and Europe.
Finally, timing is everything. Your birth chart reveals the strongest periods for you to make changes, expand, relocate, or simply go to the next level in your career. If you start a new business venture or apply for a promotion, it is very important to make sure that you do it during a positive, ascending cycle in your life. When you start a business in a low cycle of your life, you might find it very challenging and suffer frustration, money loss, or expend more energy than necessary. The timing of your career of choice within the current economic cycle also plays a part in your success. A business that is synchronized with the current economic cycle will have a great impact on the level of your achievement.
When you consult your birth chart, you will be more confident of which directions to take in your education, relationships, and career. You will be prepared for the ups and downs in life. A birth chart provides a road map for sidestepping potholes and avoiding obstacles, allowing you to reach fulfilling destinations and enjoy your life more fully. You will find that doing something you love is true prosperity, as it will spread and improve different areas of your life.
