- The emergence of Ba Zi astrology from the much more ancient Ganzhi "Four Pillars" system and related astronomical movements is probably easier to comprehend. Still parts of Ba Zi remain mysterious.
This is a sad weakness in the Chinese practitioners of Feng Shui and astrology, where there is a tendency just to accept without really comprehending whatever the masters taught them. Practitioners do not know how their arts originated because their immediate masters no longer know either. Once the more ancient masters must have known, but today they do not. The lack of scientific and astronomical knowledge is fatal, preventing the understanding and scientific applications of both Feng Shui and astrology. This way, errors crept in and were perpetuated, leading to divergence, conflicts and even fakes among the Feng Shui and astrology concepts and schools.
For some time, analysts have noticed that Zi Wei astrology uses a 12 houses format which is also seen in Hindu and Western astrology. This indicates there are some ill-understood links to the Hindu astrology. Hindu astrologers actually arrived to the Chinese royal courts as early as during the Sui dynasty, and were prominent in the Tang royal court. So, a Hindu origin for Zi Wei Dou Shu is logical.
But, previous attempts to show how Zi Wei astrology could have arisen from Hindu astrology have failed. The Zi Wei Dou Shu complicated system has defied analysis down the hundreds of years since the Sung dynasty.
It is somehow amazing that, while Zi Wei is a known real star system, practitioners of Zi Wei Dou Shu maintained that its stars are imaginary.
Was the creator an alien from outer space with superior alien knowledge or was he a super mathematician? If souls do survive after death, the creator must be amused that no one has so far cracked the secrets of the origins and basis of his Zi Wei Dou Shu.
The Hindu and Western Zodiacs are known to be similar. In a previous article , we have already shown that the Chinese Zodiac signs are also the same as the Hindu and Western Zodiac signs! That is, the signs of the Chinese Hindu and Western Zodiacs are the same, originating from the same ancient sources.
Now, our scientific research has finally found out how the founder invented Zi Wei Dou Shu astrology! He had actually masked the foundations by mathematical juggling of the steps. The original astronomical movements are hidden below the numerous tables of reference to pinpoint positions of the various "stars". It was a successful clever attempt to prevent proper understanding and this has caused Zi Wei astrology to have a mystical aura, like the much simpler but very dubious Mei Hua divination (see articles ).
Persistent scientific research by Gui Management Centre has finally unlocked the complex 1,000 years old mystery of Zi Wei Dou Shu! This indicates how devoted advanced scientific research can throw light on the origins and logical basis of Feng Shui and astrology.
