Confused about timezone & ba zi...

Recommended Posts


Dear Master Lee,


I am very confused about hour of birth. There are different time zones and I don't understand how the software is able to determine if the time of birth is in China, USA or Europe or anywhere else. Does the time zone make a difference and how is it calculated in relation to the software time zone?


Thanks,
Ulla

Dear Ulla,


1. Frankly all the various practitioners/master who use TIME ZONE or LOCATION factors to alter the original ba zi are all recent and modern changes avocated by modern practitioners.


2. The only method I will more or less say might make some sense is if you apply the LOCATION factor to alter the location to the current moon location. However, even this has lots of issues, ie even an 0.01 degree off any latitude and longtitude, will make a major change to your ba zi chart and thus making it less accurate than if you do not use an hour of birth. Furthermore, most people don't even have the exact


3. Using GMT time zone is a bad way to alter a ba zi chart, this is because GMT timezone has been so simplifiied, and it only affects the longtitude changes. So this is further in correct.


4. Our stand on this issue is rather do not add these level of complication to the analysis. Meaning that you should just use your local time (regardless of what country), to analyse the ba zi. This is because if you truly understand how the ba zi works, the HOUR pillar will not make a major impact in terms of the 10-yearly, 5-yearly, yearly and monthly luck pillars.


What normally happens is that the hour pillar gives additional pillars available for combinations and clashes, so this can affect the final outcome of a person to be either weak or strong. Given that a day without the hour tends to mean that all other hours usually will usually come out to the same weak or strong nature. Only a few hours may be different. Otherwise it should not change to much, and thus your luck pillars will not be too badly influenced by this hour impact, except for minor yearly and chart clash or harms which will occur. But these are minor as your general luck will not alter too much.


5. This is why we can still analyse a person luck fairly well even if you do not provide the hour pillar. This is why if you look at even those who done case study of famous people, you will noticed that they do it just with the date and time of that person regardless of where the country of birth is.


Frankly, ba zi has this level of safeguard already. Meaning that with or without hour of birth a person's chart can still be deduced. Just that if you have the hour of birth this will be done more accurately.


6. So if you understand that, what happens if you attempt to change this with location factor, what may happen is that you will likely add a level of error in terms of the birth place long. and lat. and a 0.01 degree will make the final ba zi chart even less accurate than if you do away without this hour of birth.


7. This is why we find that frankly, no need to worry too much about this issue. Just use your local time and it should be fairly ok. You must always remember that a ba zi is supposed to be a heavenly GIVEN chart of what kind of luck you are supposed to have if your environment remains constant. This means it does not consider education, your house (earth luck), people around you, your career etc.


However, in true life, how can you expect your environment to be constant. Your luck is always being altered by your house luck, people around you, and your career.


Let me give you some example:-


a. Given the exact date and time of birth of a twins. One has primary education and one has PHD. Which you think will have better life. Most likely the one with PHD.


b. Given a twins again. One stay in US and one stay in IRAQ. which wiill you thihnk will have a better life. Again most likely US as it is more stable and peaceful.


c. Given a two person. Person A has 10-year favourable luck to him, but he stays in a house with entrapped feng shui and death suitability to the home. Person B 10-year luck not with that person, but he says in a house with excellent feng shui and prosperity suitability to the home. The Person B will have actually a much better luck then person A. Cos, a person's earth luck has ADVERSED impact upton your bazi.


8. So if you understand this fact, frankly, ba zi is by no means a tool which can forecast 100% all past events. What it can do is give you a forecast of potential pitfalls, and how you can try to maximise your luck. Many modern practitioners/masters, try to make you think that ba zi can give you an accurate assesment of your past and future events. But I will ask you how is this possible if this concepts only supposed to provide you with a heavenly given luck?


9. So this is another reason why, frankly, no alternation of hour or even adding location factor is really necessary. In Feng Shui, ba zi only defines your heaven luck, but to fully apply feng shui you have to use all the other tools such as Ba Zi, Compass Schools (Eight House / Flying Star), Shapes and Form and more. Only with these combined tools can it give you a proper analysis and how you can improve it. You should not just eat and sleep with only one concept and ignore the rest.


10. So our advice to you is just to leave the hour unknown or unaltered. This will really give you a fairly good analysis as well as an even more accurate analysis then attempt to modify a theory with timezone or location factors, which in any case most people don't have a detailed record of the exactly long. and lat. of birth.


11. Thus, our system will not attempt to make any such modification. Really not necessary.



Warmest Regards
