Four Pillars of Destiny
with Dr. Edgar Sung
July 10-13, 2008,
This workshop addresses the basic principles of one of the
most important forms of Chinese Astrology-Four Pillars. This form of astrology
is also known as "The Eight Characters" or "Ba Zhi" or "Zi Ping." Four
Pillars is a very accurate and powerful method of reading one's life chart.
What is Four Pillars Astrology?
Four Pillars consists of four columns displaying the Heavenly Stems and
Earthly Branches of a person's birth Year, Month, Day, and Hour. Each
column consists of two characters. The top character is the Heavenly Stem
and the bottom is the Earthly Branch. Since each column has two characters
representing the Year, Month, Day and Hour, it is also called "The Eight
Four Pillars came from a well-known scholar, Xu Zi Ping in the Sung Dynasty
(960-1279 AD). He changed the way people called Chinese Astrology. In
very ancient time, people only use the birth year to represent the person's
fate, which is their zodiac sign of the birth year. Even today, when people
talk about Chinese Astrology, they usually talk about the animal sign
and characteristic of the zodiac. Xu Zi Ping put the important of a person's
fate on the day of the birth which he called "Day Master".

Subsequently, Edgar will show us how to incorporate this knowledge into
our daily life. He also teaches us how to determine our favorable elements
in the Five Elements Theory and knowing and understanding our lucky and
unlucky cycle in our life. With the health analysis, we know how practice
preventive medicine. And if we have a full understand of our life, we
will know how to live our life to the fullest and maximizing our potential

need to make a major decision, Four Pillars is the best guide you can refer to.
