Four Pillars of Destiny is one of the branches of Chinese Astrology. Using this technique, one is able to draw up a blue print or map of a person's life and advise them on what action to take during various phases of their life. In order to draw up a four pillar chart, the year, month, day and time of birth must be known as well as the place of birth. A complete birth chart will have four "pillars" (consisting of four stems and four branches).
A Four Pillars reading can tell what kind of character a person has and what kind of relationship the person is likely to have with their parents, superiors, subordinates, spouse, friends and siblings. What kind of career they will most likely be successful in and whether it is a favourable time or not to start that new business or project. An astrologer will advise on wealth prospects and when to grasp opportunities and when not to take risks. It is an excellent and accurate method for selecting the most suitable time for the action that you may want to take, e.g. the best date for opening a business, changing jobs, moving house, getting married. Compatibility of business partners and prospective marriage partners can also be accurately evaluated.
If we understand our Four Pillars and take appropriate action, then we will be doing the right thing at the right time. When we do this we are better able to overcome obstacles during challenging times and better able to grasp opportunity during favourable times.
Good luck does not realise its full potential all by itself. It takes action at the right time. If you don't open the door when opportunity knocks, how will it meet you?
Four Pillars of Destiny is a fascinating art and a useful tool that enables you to understand yourself and other people.
