Understanding the Four Pillars in Feng Shui
In Chinese fortune telling, it is of great importance what the Four
Pillars reveals. The Four Pillars are quite simply the year, month, day
and hour of your birth. Astrologers then calculate the element in which
you were born under and whether it is yin or yang.
Now each and every one of your pillars correspond to two elements
which is why they are given the names 'heavenly stem' and 'earthly
branch'. As there are Four Pillars and two elements for each pillar,
there would be a total of eight elements but there is bound to be one
element that is missing or lacking and enhancing this missing element
is what strengthens an individual's Feng Shui.
Calculating one's personal Four Pillars is something that requires
experience as it is a very complicated process. Well known Chinese
astrologers have been known to use computers to decipher these
intricate calculations so as not to make a mistake which may prove
costly to the client's well being or the astrologer's reputation.
And because not everyone has an opportunity to meet in person with
these astrologers, Lillian recommendation that you energize all the
five elements in your home to be sure you are getting the perfect
balance of yin and yang. After all the ultimate aim of Feng Shui is to
get all the elements in sufficient doses so that yin and yang hit a
perfect balance to harmonize your home. So start learning about what
element goes in which sector from the charts and get a compass to help
you see where all the sectors go. Good Luck!
