Ancient Astrology and Classical Feng Shui Explaining One of the Fundamental Principles of Objective Reality: the Malefic Planets and Stars Being More Powerful than the Benefic Ones

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



When I was 5 years old my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

The human wishful thinking and trying to reinvent the wheel never ceases to amaze me. In the last few centuries it has been one movement or system or philosophy after the other. This is even more prevalent in the last 100 years.

In today’s Western values, as promulgated by the media and entertainment industry, the prevalent view is what I call “the American Dream”: everyone can make it big in life provided they are willing to work hard for it, regardless of their background or character. Yes, there is some truth to this notion, but only just enough so as to ensnare people into pursuing that dream (likewise with the phrase “pursuit of happiness” – yes, you can pursue it, but there is no guarantee you will get it and what about the Now moment). This ”American Dream” notion has suffered a heavy blow in the last 20+ years with the gradual disappearing of the middle class and the gap between the very wealthy and very poor widening considerably worldwide. Everyone can look up the statistics and see the purchasing power of the people going steadily downhill.

My point is that unless someone turns to systems of knowledge that deal with the eternal principles of this reality, they can and will be very easily misled by notions such as the above one which can be very dangerous. Way too many people are suffering from low self-esteem or worse, like depression, lack of peace of mind, sickness and even despair, because they can’t succeed in this world. To make it clear, I mean to succeed in a big, tangible, materialistic way that is as impressive as those in the spotlight, the role models etc. A type of way proportional to the hard work of the person desiring that status and a way that allows this person to attain a type of eminence or influence which is described as highly desirable by the media (note: the media don’t have regular middle-type people as role models; I am talking about the so called stars or people of power who have thousands and more behind them).

Such systems of knowledge are Ancient Astrology and Chinese Metaphysics (Classical Feng Shui being a branch of it). These systems posit, but more importantly explain and prove, the exact opposite, that is, it is much more difficult to rise high in society, to become very powerful and wealthy, let alone higher, like someone with enormous influence, power, or even higher as one having a role in shaping a given time period and even human history. People are NOT born equal and everyone has their own limitations as shown by their natal chart.

The reason this is so crucial to realize is that as such systems deal with the fundamental principles of reality, these principles cannot be changed in any way whatsoever. Yes, there are exceptions (like accidental benefics, high eminence, timeliness of stars, fortunate forms influencing the stars etc) and with enough knowledge and experience they can be slightly tweaked, but that is not the point. I am talking about the general rules which subordinate all others.

In regards to why it is so much harder to succeed in this world, it is because of the rules of this reality. One can call it a game, a school, etc; the rules show that malefic planets in Astrology and malefic/bad/anti-life stars in Classical Feng Shui are more powerful, and even more in numbers, than benefic ones. I don’t want to digress, but in Jyotish/Indian Astrology, it is, of course, the same. In fact the malefics there are even more. What is more, it is not just the malefics being more powerful, it is about certain specific conditions that have to be met in order for the chart to be considered belonging to an eminent or powerful or historical figure.

One can wonder why this is so? Why is the conventional badness stronger than conventional goodness? To make it clear, by badness I mean: death, sickness, injury, poverty, divorce, lack of friends, ending of friendships, legal entanglements, slander, bareness, fear, injustice, scarcity, distrust, deceit, lying, manipulation, tyranny, destruction, stupidity, ingratitude, parasitism, etc.

By goodness, I mean: life, vitality, abundance, mutually beneficial relationships, friendships, alliances, affection, hope, justice, trust, honour, truth, peace, virtue, learning etc.

By stronger I mean such qualities predominate and will continue to do so. ANY notions of collective evolution, spiritual collective advancement etc, simply have no basis whatsoever. They are nice ideas, notions that sound nice and pleasing, but that is it. One must always remember where a given principle is coming from – in that case – Ancient Astrology and Chinese Metaphysics which are over 2000 years old – versus some movements that are a few decades or centuries at most old and their worth and practicality, not to mention the ability to see the past and predict the future, are no match for these most powerful systems of knowledge.

However, notice I am talking about the collective, not the individual of course! In other words, everyone is responsible for their own actions, their education, principles, life choices, manners, etc – things which fall under the Human Luck from the Cosmic Trinity in Chinese Metaphysics and as such are under the greatest control of a given individual. Whether or rather how much difference using that Human Luck will make in regards to realizing their big dream depends on the Heaven Luck (deals with things which cannot be changed, like Astrology) and the Earth Luck (the environment, Feng Shui).

So why are the rules such? What is it that necessitates that reality be structured in such a way? It is a complex question and I am not going to elaborate because it deals with predetermination and choices made by one’s Higher Self (Soul) prior to embodiment, but what it ultimately boils down to is…..yes, scarcity – one of the words of the malefics.

In other words, by being thoroughly versed in Ancient Astrology and/or Classical Feng Shui and examining hundreds and thousands of natal charts or locations, it becomes crystal clear that eminent and/or powerful astrological charts and sites producing multimillionaires and/or powerful individuals are very rare. The shorter way is of course to understand the fundamental principles, that is, to comprehend on a deeper level that what you are studying is eternal and extremely powerful knowledge with which the whole world is shaped and follows – Natural Law if you will. That is what I really love about Ancient Astrology and Chinese Metaphysics, Feng Shui in this case, although this pertains to Chinese Astrology, BaZi/Four Pillars of Destiny and also Chinese Physiognomy/Face and Palm Reading. These 2 systems are like the Book of Life. One reads them, memorizes, understands them and then they start seeing how their rules and principles turn out to be correct all the time in the actual lives of people and places. In other words, since the movements of the planets are predetermined and can be calculated for 5000 years, which allows one to check when an eminent chart will be formed, and also since mountains and rivers are thousands and more years old, one can check (although that is way trickier because the Qi is finite and one does not know how much of it will be depleted) for the external forms and calculate the internal formulas of Qi/Universal energy as to when there will be a location, direction and chart which produces eminent/powerful charts/people.

There is another crucial matter which I want to address, namely that not everyone wants or cares to succeed in a big way. It is very dangerous to allow to be manipulated into accepting the contrasted way as touted by the media; that people are either winners or losers in life in general. This is bald faced lie! No one can judge or really understand and appreciate another person’s life path from the correct perspective because everyone has a different fate and destiny as shown by their natal astrological charts as well as by the chart of the property they live in. This gives them a unique character, perspective and predispositions.

While wealth, power, high visibility and to the will to succeed at all cost may be the most important for a lot of people, for other people they are not desirable, even if in some rare cases when they are attainable, as also shown by history. Many other people value art, classical music, human relationships, being of service to the community or having a balanced existence etc, etc as the most important.

Finally, I want to reiterate how vital it is to understand the fundamental principles of reality. However, when it comes to Astrology and Feng Shui, this can only be done by dealing with the original, classical texts and the rules based on them.

Modern astrology and New Age feng shui have no basis whatsoever. They are completely man made creations where, unsurprisingly, no distinction is made between malefic and benefic planets or stars or sectors. It is impossible to practise objectively without adhering to the time tested rules; one cannot hope to describe the past and predict the future if they cannot categorize any given event as life promoting or life robbing. And no, one does not need to believe, intend or will in Ancient Astrology or Classical Feng Shui for them to work. In fact there is no need to see the clients for the practitioner to give very detailed descriptions, remedies and predictions. All that is needed is the birth details of the person in question and of their property.

I am making this clear because people or, worse, practitioners of modern astrology (psychological astrology or astrology after the year 1650 which has nothing whatsoever to do with Ancient Astrology) and modern feng shui (like Black Hat and other similar offshoots, using a Bagua mirror, using Feng Shui as interior design, which has nothing whatsoever to do with Classical Feng Shui), have unrealistic expectations about Astrology and Feng Shui.

These systems (Ancient Astrology and Classical Feng Shui) can do an awful lot, but they are not magickal bullets. Moreover, it is not about changing one’s fate (impossible to do anyway, though knowing it one can locate and take advantage of the loopholes here and there) but understanding and accepting it. I will be writing about this in a future article.
