Chinese Astrology Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Chinese Astrology Predict People's Fortune?

We simply use the Yin Yang Five Element Relationships to predict people's fortune. Since the concept of Five Elements is abstract, we convert Five Elements into Five Stars, which are Money, Career, Companion, Parent, and Fame (Child) stars. In this way, it will be easy for us to understand our lucks of money, career, or fame.

There are four astrology cycles that dominate people's fortune in Chinese astrology. They are 10-year Major Cycle, Yearly Cycle, Monthly Cycle, and Daily Cycle. Usually, 10-year Major Cycle and Yearly Cycle is to predict people's good or bad luck. The Monthly Cycle and Daily Cycle are to predict when good or bad luck will happen.

The symbols of the cycles are from the Stem-Branch system in the Chinese astrology calendar. The first symbol is called Stem. The second symbol, which is an animal sign, is called Branch. Our prediction is not only to check for the Stem Relationships and Branch Relationships but also to examine the additional Branch Relationships, the special Branch Relationships, and the mixing Stem and Branch Relationships. Therefore, we are very confident in our prediction.

Predict Your Money, Career, and Fame

Our prediction focuses on money, career, and fame because we believe most people are quite interested in these subjects.

Lunar Calendar or Solar Calendar?

Your birthday for our Chinese astrology is the date from the solar calendar (western calendar or Gregorian calendar), no the Chinese lunar calendar.

We didn't convert your birthday to the lunar calendar, because the Chinese astrology calendar is only connected to the sun. not the moon. Sun creates day, night, and four seasons. Our Five Element astrology talks about Yin Yang and season changes.

Including many Chinese, people think Chinese astrology always uses the lunar calendar since thousand years ago. The ancient Chinese fortune tellers converted lunar time to solar time because the Chinese only have the lunar calendar then.

Can We Do the Prediction Without Knowing the Birth Time?

Yes. As long as you know your birthday, Chinese astrology still can give you some predictions. But without your correct birth time, Chinese astrology is unable to determine your Lucky Element right. The lucky element is the key to predict people's good or bad luck. That means Chinese astrology can tell you what will happen to you, but it cannot tell you the result is favorable or unfavorable to you.

Why is the Birth Place Time Zone is required?

It's required for only people born in the astrological hour, day, or month boundaries. The Chinese hour boundary is at 1,3,5,7,9,10,11 A.M. and 1,3,5,7,9,11 P.M.. The month boundary is around from the 3rd day to the 9th day in our solar months. Time Zone can adjust your birth time to the correct astrological hour, day, and month.

How Good is the Prediction?

Will our prediction always happen? We don't want to say yes, because you might not completely understand the meaning of Five Elements. For example, when Fire appears in the cycle, we just know something to do with Fire will impact your life. Since Fire is too abstract, we use Five Stars to explain the prediction. If Fire is the Career star, then we only know something to do with your job, power, boss, police, challenge, accident, disease, or lawsuit might come toward your life. It's possible that an accident happened, but the prediction just mentioned job pressure during that period. To you, that's different. To the fortune tellers, that's identical.

The Five Elements are changing with the passage of time. Daily Five Elements last only for a day. Monthly Five Elements last for about 30 days. Yearly Five Elements last for a year. Also, usually, the Daily Five Elements are the continuation from yesterday's Five Elements. That means daily event continues the unfinished business for days before. Our daily astrology prediction doesn't check for that complicated relationships. However, everything always has a beginning. If the daily Five Elements are the same as the monthly or yearly Five Elements, then that day might be the beginning point of an event. Therefore, we know monthly predictions will happen, but we don't know which day unless we examine every daily Five Elements.

In general, monthly Five Elements are more important than daily Five Elements and yearly Five Elements are more important than monthly ones. Certainly, the Five Elements in 10-year major cycles are even more important, because they last for 10 years.

Why can a fortune teller Predict Better?

If you ask questions to a fortune teller in person, then you might tell the fortune teller that you want to know your career, money, or health luck first, so the fortune teller will focus on your job, investment or disease. For example, you ask for the result or duration of a lawsuit. Then the fortune teller will study the Career Star, but he or she never mentions your job pressure.

Good Chinese fortune teller studies the Five Elements of the birth chart and astrological cycles first without asking people any question. Certainly, the first clue is that the person is in bad luck. After knowing which element in your birth chart is in trouble, the fortune teller can guess what is happening according to gender and age.

For example, a mother asks her son's birth chart and the fortune-teller knows the trouble is from the Career Star. The fortune-teller might ask the mother, " Are your son in school now?" If the answer is no, then the child might have a health problem at home or hospital, or even at heaven. If the answer is yes, then the child might have trouble with the law.

Anyway, the interactive conversion will help fortune-tellers making a better prediction.

What are Five Stars?

In Chinese astrology, the Career star means anything or anyone that gives you pressure or harm. Therefore Career star might be a job giving you pressure, a disease giving your health pressure, an accident hurting your body, or a person giving you rules. So the Career star represents the position, job, power, pressure, competition, challenge, accident, adventure, law, reform, etc.

The Fame (Child) Star is related to anything out of you. Therefore, your body and mind expression to people is the Fame star. Whatever you give people impressions should be your reputation. So Fame star represents people's outlook, idea, expression, skill, talent, wisdom, argument, weakness, children, disease, etc.

The Parent star is connected to something or someone to protect you. Anything that can increase your body and mind power is the Parent star. So the Parent star stands for your parents, supporters, subordinates, education, wisdom, knowledge, reputation, relax, laziness, etc.

The Companion star stands for your siblings or relatives who have the same generation as you. People will feel much comfortable, confident, aggressive, stronger, and braver when friends are around. So the competition, expansion, independence, friendship, leadership, challenge, and money are Companion stars.

The Money star must be related to money, property, investment, loan, shopping, social life, and material life, and people who interesting in your money.
