As a student growing up, I would always flip to the horoscope section of the newspaper to have a read. While some of the predictions/forecasts amused me, I have never taken them seriously because I was reading them to pass the time.
However, since 2015, I developed a genuine interest in astrology, and I have used different astrology systems to read and interpret my natal chart. Some of the systems which I have used include Bazi, 9 Star Ki, Yi Jing, Zi Wei Dou Shu, Qi Men Dun Jia, Greek Astrology, Vedic Astrology, and Numerology and guess what?
They are all surprisingly very accurate, and they provide useful indicators of a person’s character, career, health, and relationships (both at home and work).
By knowing a person’s date of birth, you can tell certain traits of a person, and it is even more accurate than having them do an MBTI or DISC profiling assessment.
A person can change their responses/answers in an MBTI or DISC profiling assessment to work in their favour, but they cannot change their date of birth and natal chart. By knowing someone’s natal chart, you can tell a lot about the person and uncover many hidden secrets. The natal chart is like a blueprint, and knowing it inside out can help a person to unlock their destiny.
However, only trained/skilled practitioners will know how to interpret the natal charts, and there are rules that they have to abide by- such as charging fees for natal chart reading/divination.
Why must practitioners charge for natal chart reading/divination?
Practitioners like myself believe in the exchange of energies, that is exchanging advice for compensation. Without some form of exchange, a negative karmic debt will affect both parties, and the practitioner will pick up the customer’s bad luck and misfortune for interfering with the business of other beings (from the other realms).
Free reading is like giving away one’s life to the customer. The practitioner may pick up the customer’s karmic debt for “leaking heaven’s secret” without compensation, and thus it becomes an interference with the destiny of the customer for no reason. For example, if a practitioner observes that something untoward will happen to the customer and informs the customer about it such that the customer can do something to avoid it, it would be considered as the practitioner having interfered with the destiny of the customer.
It will be inauspicious to the customer who will owe a karmic debt to the practitioner, and this karma entanglement may cause unnecessary reincarnations to repay the karmic debts.
The amount of payment is not essential, but the flow and exchange of energies are. Hence, if a practitioner does not want to charge a poor customer or close friend, a symbolic payment inside a red envelope or a simple meal should be a minimum.
There are, however, exceptions to this and practitioners will not charge a fee for three groups of people:
1. People whose lives are about to end
2. People who are facing an unavoidable major disaster
3. People who will not have good luck for the remainder of their lives
There are also some other rules for fee-charging, and some of these rules include:
Charging the rich and famous more because people at these social levels have a more considerable influence on society and “leaking heaven’s secrets” to them will create more unintended impact (whether positive or negative) on society.
Charging the poor lesser because the influence of this group of people on society is smaller than that of the rich and “leaking heaven’s secrets” to them will not have much impact on society.
Also, there are four types of readings that practitioners don’t do:
1. No reading of other people’s private matter to avoid exploitation of people unknown to the practitioner.
2. No prediction of baby gender.
3. No forecasting or divination service for crooks due to obvious reasons.
4. No forecasting or divination service for insincere people.
If you are a practitioner like me, and you want to level up your Bazi Reading/Interpretation skill, you might want to check out the Bazi Course conducted by Jenson Goh (I don’t get any commissions/referral fees for recommending his course). I am only recommending Jenson’s course because his lessons are simple to follow, and there’s no fluff involved (you will get authentic learning and be able to apply it).
