Goodbye Guinea Pig&#...

One of the frequent pieces advice I give to BaZi students is GET A GUINEA PIG. Someone you can experiment on, test out your bazi knowledge and generally, figure out how BaZi works on a live wriggling example. Of course, you are your own best guinea pig but is helps also to have guinea pigs...

Throwback Forecast: ...

Manchester United fans are all of course, wondering what is happening to their team this season. It’s been truly a rotten season for Louis van Gaal (I’m no football maniac but I read the sports pages occasionally).   Perhaps after this, Manchester United might consider hiring...

What is your Surrend...

Recently I had a client who had a rather unusual BaZi – unusual in that it was complex and at the same time, the self element was extremely weak. The client was at something of a crossroads in life and was facing some important decisions about work-life balance and also, finding the...

Lance Armstrong: Arc...

This is Lance Armstrong’s chart (hour not correct). I thought I would continue some of the discussion about his chart here. Postscript: the Luck Pillars have now been included into the post.   So the thing about this chart is what made him cheat/dope?  I have been thinking about...

Whilst browsing via Zite, I came across an article on Bloomberg Businessweek entitled “Are Creative People More Dishonest?“ Interestingly, the article was accompanied by a photograph of Bernard Madoff. Yes he of Ponzi scheme fame. The article references the work of Dan Ariely,...

2011:Forecast for 辛 ...

Before I launch into 2011, it’s instructional to think about how forecasts ought to be done, especially if one is looking to study the socio-economic effects. The first thing is that the forecast must look at the chart for the year that follows and the year that precedes.  This is...

The Enemy of the Tig...

…is the Monkey. I’m writing just a very short post on this topic because the year is practically over and so it would seem writing this at this point is not terribly useful to anyone really. But since someone commented that I was supposed to have wrote about who would be most...

Double Dip and BaZi

A quick post on the story I posted on my FB page about the Hindenburg Omen which suggests the US is in for a Double Dip recession. Disclaimer: I am not an economist. I have some economic knowledge but I am not a trained economist. This is not to be construed as economic/financial/stock market...
