Integrating Ancient Astrology with Chinese Metaphysics

Hi. I moved this article to my new website. Please read its updated and improved version there. Thank you.



Written in May 2015. It used to be a separate section. For those that want to find the articles, use the search function and type “Chinese Metaphysics or Chinese Face Reading, or Chinese Physiognomy or Chinese Astrology or BaZi or Four Pillars of Destiny

“Looked from above, one level of truth  does not contradict another level of truth which, from its own perspective, seems wrong compared to it”

This above saying is extremely important to keep in mind. This is because Ancient Astrology rests on a different philosophical basis than Chinese Metaphysics. They have an awful lot in common,  but can be and are very different at the same time.

Let it be clear that, just as with Astrology, I am practising Classical Chinese Metaphysics, that is, not the modern watered down New Age version of psychology bordering on flattery and political correctness, but the thousands of years old ancient Wisdom which was outlawed outside of the Imperial Court because this Knowledge is extremely powerful.

Also, by “integrating”, I don’t mean some hodgepodge; as I said these fields of Knowledge have more in common in unveiling one’s destiny and life purpose, but are different philosophically and therefore one must not mix them in a way that they lose their original foundation as well as cultural context. They can be, of course, used by themselves, but when one starts to integrate them it is immediately apparent that they can and do become even more powerful and revealing. After all, that is one of the reasons why such Knowledge was hoarded and scattered throughout the planet. Luckily, at least the Chinese (and the Indians but I digress) preserved their System of Knowledge to a larger extent than other cultures.

The purpose of this section is primarily to show the common principles behind Ancient Western Astrology and Chinese Metaphysics. Applying them in practice is crucial and will be illustrated, however, understanding the philosophical parts is just as essential.
