Your fortune at birth

June 15, 2006

By Marites Allen

Wow! It has been a great week indeed. Congratulations to the Philippine Team who made it to the highest peak in the world. It's truly an honor for us Filipinos— a very positive news! A few weeks ago we drove from Monte Carlo thru to Italy then back again to France via its longest Tunnel—Frejus (12,895 meters long) just to reach Mont Blonc in Chamonix. Imagine a tunnel that has been built under the mountains connecting the three countries, Italy, Switzerland then back to France with the awesome view of the Alpines—truly an incredible work of engineering and science. Upon reaching Mont Blonc, we took the cable ride with our four children in tow and among the group of skiers. As soon as we reach the peak (3,842 m in height) with a freezing minus 30o, our children got so ill and my husband and I felt that it was very difficult for us to breathe as the altitude is too much for us to bear. Along with the rest of the crowd, we lined up again in a queue for the next cable car to take us to the grounds. With this experience, truly I admire our kababayans who stood the challenge and making it into the top of the world. Congratulations! For questions from our readers, I have replied all of you through your e-mail addresses and due to the space I will require for this article, I have omitted the Q & A for posting in the next issue.

Back to my task in updating you with some interesting feng shui tips, I meet up with some of our regular and new guests at our newly opened World of Feng Shui boutique at the SM Mall of Asia. As it is a common experience for us to receive inquiries on different people asking questions about our personal luck, I have provided here a short reference on what possible fortune is in store for us during the day and time that we were born as featured earlier in our Feng Shui World magazine. From the Imperial tung shu comes this incredible poem of the four seasons described to the legendary Yellow Emperor. From the poem can be obtained general indications of what life holds in store for a newborn baby. It is believed that depending on your season of birth, your life can be full of burdens or full of abundance. It all depends on which part of the Emperor's body you were born on. We present here brief predictive details of the four seasons poem for those wishing to investigate how, and at what stage of their life, they will enjoy the patronage and goodwill of the emperor.

The incredible Chinese tung shu is filled with the most fascinating esoteric information relating to destiny analysis, as well as the meanings of signs, marks and symbols. One of the more tantalizing chapters relate to making a quick and general forecast of a person's life destiny, based on the seat assigned to us when we are born. This is based on the season of one's birth, as well as the time of birth i.e. the exact time when the baby is expelled or removed from the mother's womb.

Thus, you first need to determine the season of birth—spring, summer, autumn or winter. The season of spring would be March, April and May; the season of summer would be June, July and August; the season of autumn would be September, October and November; while the season of winter would be December, January and February.

Next, you will need to determine your hour of birth based on the 12 earthly branches. This divides a 24-hour day into 12 time segments of two hours each, with each time segment representing one of the Chinese astrological animals. With these two bits of information, you then need to look at the illustrations of the Yellow Emperor wearing the robes of the seasons—green robes for the spring, red robes for the summer, white robes for the fall and blue robes for the winter.

Look at the emperor that corresponds with your season of birth, then locate on which part of the Emperor you were born based on your time of birth. Note from the time chart of the 12 time segments that each two-hour period has a special name. Locate the hour name on the emperor's body and then check against the meaning given. For example, if your hour pillar is Mao in the season of summer, you look for the illustration of the Emperor in the summer season, locate where your hour name is located on his body and then read the meaning given under summer.

Use the table and diagram here to determine on which part of the Emperor you were born, then refer to the descriptions below to find your destiny.
