Locate the years above to identify which zodiac year you were born in.
Your memory and your mind works better when you can relate to things
1. Always use yourself as the basis for the calculation. (then you will seldom go wrong.)
3. After that, locate your spouse, as well as the years of your siblings or even your family members (the challenge here is to perform some basic mathematical calculations). For instance, if you know that you were born in the year of the rabbit and your lover is two years younger than you, this would indicate that your partner was born in the year of the Ox. Is it really that easy?
If you were born in the latter half of January or the first few days of February, your Chinese zodiac year may differ from those listed above because of the timing of your birth. If you want to get an accurate reading of your Chinese zodiac sign, all you have to do is select the year in Step 2 of the process.
In addition, please keep in mind that the traditional Chinese method of illustrating the animal zodiac sign is merely a point of reference. It does not mean that you will be able to grow wings and fly if you are born in the year of the dragon, nor does it mean that you will be able to swing from tree to tree if you are born in the year of the monkey.
What is the purpose of studying the Chinese Zodiac?
Many of us begin with an interest or a hobby that becomes a passion, with the prospect of pursuing it as a career.
Please keep an open mind when attempting to learn Chinese metaphysics (or anything related to Feng Shui). Even though it is classified as a social science topic, there is a significant amount of science involved. It is comparable to the study of economics. It’s rather challenging to quantify human behavior; otherwise, there wouldn’t be any inflation or deflation.
In any case, the study of the Chinese Zodiac can lead us to one of the pillars of Chinese metaphysics. Yes, in modern times, we can analyze a portion of a person’s behavior based on their birth year. To properly analyze someone, we need their time and date of birth.
Those born in the years of the Tiger, Monkey, Snake, and Pig, for instance, are essentially natural-born leaders due to their propensity for travel, which helps them develop a natural understanding of how to interact with others. This zodiac sign contains the majority of entrepreneurs. I prefer to refer to them as the “Big 4” of the Chinese Zodiac. Please do not label me right away. They are the Big 4, so they can choose to be entrepreneurs if they so choose, but that doesn’t prevent the other 8 Zodiacs from becoming entrepreneurs. It simply indicates that the other 8 Zodiac signs need more effort to become successful entrepreneurs.
Elon Musk was born in the year of the Pig, while Larry Ellison was born in the year of the Monkey. You can view their YouTube profiles to learn more about these two billionaires. They are classified under the Big 4 zodiac. Success does come easy to them when they put in their best effort, and they can rise to the top.
But Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos were born in the year of the Sheep and Rabbit, respectively; what about them? They are not the Big 4, but they are also among the world’s top ten billionaires. That is correct. With the appropriate drive and training, every zodiac sign is capable of becoming a billionaire.
Bill Gates enjoys reading books, and Jeff Bezos worked on the floor in the early days of Amazon. They are aware that they must take action in order to be successful in their lives. They make every effort to achieve accomplishment. They are aware that the odds are stacked against them, but they never stop learning.
If you are an experienced Bazi practitioner, you may have overlooked the Year Pillar in favor of the Day Pillar when conducting analysis. This error requires serious consideration.
The majority of you will view the year pillar as external acquaintances and friends. This is correct, but please do not miss the part where the year pillar also signifies a person’s life up to 15–16 years of age. Can a normal person forget or erase their life memories before the age of 16? Most likely not, so the year pillar is also essential for the formation of a person’s behavioral pattern, linguistic skills, and personal perspective on family and friends.
This is just a primer; we will ultimately examine the Day Master for greater precision in analyzing the Bazi Chart based on the theory of Four Pillars of Destiny, influenced by the Song Dynasty grandmaster Xu Ziping, which supersedes the Tang Dynasty Li Xu Zhong theory on the Three Pillars of Destiny.
When analyzing a person’s Chinese Zodiac, we should appreciate the charting moments that illustrate this person’s life progression from childhood to the present. Each pillar of the Bazi Chart is significant and has meaning for the individual.
Haste is wasteful. A consultant’s credibility would be diminished if they jumped to premature conclusions. Please keep this in mind if you ever become an expert in Feng Shui or a Feng Shui consultant in the future.
Now that you know which year you’re born in, you can explore more about your own personality.
We will explore further in depth the art of Chinese metaphysics in the coming articles. For those who are not Chinese-educated, please do not be discriminated against by any Chinese writings.
The majority of the Chinese words used in Feng Shui are traditional Chinese. Even if some educated Chinese people can read it, they will not understand what the words signify.
So, regardless of whether you know Chinese or not, we are all on the same footing.
To be honest, most well-known Feng Shui masters were not schooled in Chinese lingustics when they were young. When they are truly interested in Feng Shui, most of them learn to distinguish the Chinese words and the context of their meaning. I’m convinced that all of the readers of this post will agree.
