Imperial Chinese horoscope based on the Four Pillars of Wisdom.
Over the centuries Chinese Horoscopes have been proved to be extremely accurate. The Four Pillars of Wisdom method (BA ZI) is, perhaps, the most accurate of all. It is used to identify the supporting elements for an individual form the Five Element Cycle as well as those to avoid. These elements define colours, directions and potential careers. It is even capable of assessing the right partner. Each of the Four Pillars represents a relationship with a family member, partner, career success or financial fortune.
The Four Pillars of Wisdom is the foundation for the Major Fate, a complicated method to determine how life will be in 5 year “fate” periods. This can be used to calculate the best time to start a business, invest for the future and have a family.

More about Chinese Astronomy
Astronomy has from time immemorial been a favourite study with the Chinese, and the literature on subject is extensive. The positions of the planets and the constellations at the time of a person’s birth were believed to have a great influence on their subsequent life and career. Emperors often employed astrologers whose job was to keep up the moral of their subjects by assuring them that the dates of particular events such as royal births were auspicious ones. The efforts of astrologers and the priests to predict such ominous events as eclipses helped to establish astronomy as a legitimate subject to study.
About Taoist Cosmology
The true learning of Feng Shui begins when we acknowledge our place in the universe, not necessarily a dominant place. This recognition and acceptance allows us to perceive and work with energies present in the environment. In practice of Feng Shui, we also need to understand that knowledge is power to cooperate rather than to manipulate. Feng Shui masters know that all things come from the Tao and return to the Tao, and that changes or transformations, is that which sets in motion the coming and going of things.
Chinese concept of cosmology and celestial patterns have derived four emblems in the celestial heavens as the Green Dragon, the White Tiger, the Black Turtle and the Red Bird. These emblems are associated with the directions as follows:
Black Turtle- North , Green Dragon – East ,Red Bird – South and White Tiger- West. In Feng Shui it is important to ensure that the left , the Green Dragon is higher than the right, the White Tiger and that the back, the Black Turtle is higher than the front , the Red Bird.
The 12 stellar positions corresponded to the 12 symbolical animals in Chinese Horoscopes.
The orientation of the main door of a building is to be decided according to the date of completion of the building. The location and orientation of a building is made with reference to the Nine Stars. The site on which the building sits is subdivided into 24 parts.
For thousands of years the Chinese have been prejudiced against the northeast and south west as these directions are lacking in spirits of both heavenly and earthly essence.
Doing the right thing at the right time and at the right place is also an important consideration in Feng Shui because the cyclical movements and changes influence the harmonious disposition of things on earth and effect the entry of auspicious qi to the buildings.
