Zi Wei Dou Shu is a very interesting kind of astrology. The findings, interestingly, match those of Four Pillars although the method and the basis are entirely different. In a way it is more interesting than the Four Pillars.

In Zi Wei, we use stars in different areas of life to do the reading. A star is considered a special form of energy. It is not "dead" energy. Each star is a "living being" that has personality to influence the mind and action of people. Each star can bring events to people over time. It is then up to the person how to react to what he encounters. In other words, the outcome is not predetermined.

In this way, a Zi Wei reading is able to offer guidance to people how to live the future. Don't be surprised at the details. It may be something like:

2005 is going to be a difficult year for you. Your business is not doing well and may most probably have to close down. However, there will be a lady coming to lend you a helping hand. She will help you establish a new career. You will fall in love with her and develope into a sweet relationship. This will probably lead to a marriage in 2007.

Zi Wei is a beautiful song but not everyone is a good singer. If you have an imaginative and creative mind, Zi Wei is for you.

The Zi Wei Dou Shu Correspondence Course consists of 4 parts. Participants will be members of the Zi Wei Dou Shu discussion mailing list that I moderate. A lot of supplementary materials will be posted.
