What is 4 Pillars of Destiny?

What is Four Pillars of Destiny?

The Ancient Chinese developed the Art of Four Pillars of Destiny 3,000 years ago as a method for enhancing the life experience. As with so many Chinese inventions, they began with analysis and experimentation until they had formulae that could be replicated and interpreted with similar results.


They recognized that each hour of the day has its own energy.     


 For example 12Noon is very different from 12Midnight. 12Noon  is very Yang and full of life, while 12Midnight is very Yin, quiet and still. Each day also has its own energy, June 21st is the longest day snd very Yang, while December 21st is the shortest and therefore very Yin.


And of course each month has an energy all its own as well. However, what is less obvious is that each year also has its own energy. The Earth tilts on its axis a few degrees each year, changing the influence of the Sun’s influence on the Earth.


The Ancient scholars realized that there is a complex relationship between the Earth and Sun that is very powerful. Where the Earth is in relation to the Sun at the hour, day, month, year and location of your birth has a definitive impact on the energy field that surrounds you as you take your first breath and therefore Your Destiny.


These scholars depicted these complex energy patterns in the form of Eight Chinese characters stacked on top of each other in the form of Pillars. Each character represents a frequency, or energy pattern. And the combination of two characters illustrates their synergistic influence.


Each character is strategically placed in the eight locations of the Four Pillars to tell the story of planetary influences of your birth and therefore Your Destiny.


How Does Four Pillars of Destiny Work?

Four Pillars of Destiny is a complex system of identify your Karma and future Destiny by calculating information gathered from the time and location of birth to determine future frequencies and their influence on you and your future.


Using this technique, the consultant is able to draw up a blueprint or map of a person's Karma and life and advise the client on what action to take during various phases of their life. In order to draw up a Four Pillar of Destiny chart, the year, month, day and time of birth are needed as well as the place of birth. If the time of birth is not known then Three Pillars will be analyzed. A complete birth chart will have Four “Pillars” consisting of eight Chinese Characters that depict the various frequencies generated at the person’s time and location of birth.


The annual cosmic frequency is depicted by two Chinese characters stacked on top of each other. Each character represents vibrations that are characterized by one of the five elements of nature (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, or Wood). In addition to representing the two frequencies individually the Pillar represents the relationship of the two frequencies with each other. The location of the element in the Pillar, top or bottom, also indicates significant information. The Pillar is referred to as the Year Pillar.


Although months are depicted much the same way as the years, determining the frequency of their cosmic chi is more complex. Two Chinese characters stacked on top of each other still create a Pillar that describes the cosmic frequency that is generated that month by the Earth’s relationship with the Sun. However, the month’s frequency is determined based on the year’s cosmic Chi and the cosmic Chi created by the Earth’s relationship to the Sun that particular month creating a distinct frequency for that month.


     The third Pillar of the Four Pillars of Destiny is the Day Pillar. Like the Year and Month Pillar the Day Pillar is composed of two Chinese characters that depict the cosmic Chi distinct to that day. The hour also has its own frequency which is depicted the same way as the year. When you put them all together, year, month, day and hour of birth, side by side you have four pillars of Chinese characters that indicate the person’s Natal chart of Destiny.  


What is a Natal Chart?

The first breath a person takes assigns their Destiny and thus outlines their Karma. When you took your first breathe you inhaled the cosmic energy that was occurring at your birth location.  Whatever frequency the Sun and Earth created at your specific location set the frequency of how your Destiny would unfold. This determined your Natal chart aspects and thereby the 'blueprint" of your Karma.


The Natal Chart is the basic Four Pillars of eight Chinese characters and the map of the Cosmic frequencies at the time of your birth. It is the foundation of Four Pillars of Destiny chart. Every aspect of your Destiny/Karma relates to the Natal Four Pillars. It defines your basic Destiny providing insights into: relationships with parents, grandparents, spouse, children; career, personality traits, finances, and health.


Why Four Pillars of Destiny?    

Four Pillars of Destiny is very different from any other form of Astrology. Four Pillars of Destiny analyzes the impact of the relationship between the Sun and the Earth on human Experience. The complex interpretation considers the planets that have the greatest impact on our physiology and thereby our lives.


This system has proven very accurate for more than 4,000 years. It is truly the road map of your Karma.


 What are Luck Pillars?

Luck Pillars describe the ten year cycles of cosmic Chi derived from the Four Pillars. These “Pillars” depict what the energy will be like for the individual for a specific 10 year period. This is very specific to the individual. Luck Pillars are based on the year a person is born and their sex. Analyzing the Ten Year Luck Pillar in combination with the Natal Chart provides great insight into the projected Destiny of an individual. They start any time between birth and 10 years of age.


What is an Annual Pillar?
Annual Pillars depict the frequency of any given year. The frequency of the year is also taken into consideration in a Four Pillars of Destiny analysis. How the frequency of the Year Pillar interacts with the frequencies of the Natal Chart and the Luck Pillars refines the interpretation of the individuals Destiny to the year in question.
