BA ZI            

QI MEN DUN JIA            



Ba Zi is the classical system of Chinese astrology, which dates back to ancient times of the Tang dynasty (617 - 907). It is similar to western astrology, but is based on the Chinese solar calendar. 

Ba Zi is a way of destiny analysis. However, it is not to be confused with fortune telling, nor with the superficial horoscopes we find in magazines. 

Literally translated Ba Zi means eight characters, but it is also known as the four pillars of destiny.


The basic theory is that everyone is affected by certain energies from the universe at the time of our birth. Accordingly, we are all given certain abilities and talents, as well as weaknesses or restrictions at birth. This imprint at birth can be displayed in your own personal Ba Zi chart. The destiny chart is based on your exact time of birth (birth date and hour). 

The personal chart shows your life potential, personality, talents, strengths and weaknesses, as well as possible difficulties and challenges you might face in your life. 


However, your destiny is not carved in stone. You can create and orchestrate your own destiny, depending on the decisions you make and the actions you take. 

The Ba Zi chart is like a road map, which shows different paths through life, whereas you can choose which path to walk on.

During a Ba Zi consultation, the personal destiny chart is analysed using ancient metaphysical theories like the principle of Yin & Yang and the five elements with their interactions, while considering the constant changes over time.

Through Ba Zi you gain awareness about yourself, your personality, strengths and weaknesses. You understand what is given to you (at birth), learn to maximize your own capacity and live up to your potential. You might also discover hidden talents that you can use to achieve your goals. Furthermore, with Ba Zi you can predict and anticipate potential problems or challenges you might face throughout your life. There are certain external factors in life that you have no control over, but you can be prepared and react accordingly. The same applies to opportunities you are presented with in life. Ba Zi helps to recognize and seize these opportunities. 

In addition, through Ba Zi you are able to learn about and understand other people, your family, friends and co-workers. In the business world it aids to evaluate, if a person is suited for a certain job or not. 


Overall, Ba Zi gives you direction and clarity in life and enables you to make better informed decisions. It can be used as a guideline to improve yourself and become the best version of yourself. Basically, it offers an upgrade of your life. Therefore, you are able to achieve the life-style you want and live a happy, successful and fulfilled life.

Qi men dun jia

Qi Men Dun Jia is one of the oldest Chinese metaphysical sciences, which dates back more than 3000 years. It is known as the secret of placing people in the right place at the right time. Originally, it was used to execute military strategies and tactics as well as predict certain outcomes. It was an elite knowledge, reserved only for the emperor. Famous historical strategists of China, who applied Qi Men Dun Jia successfully to win their battles, include Sun Tzu, Zhuge Liang and Mao Zedong. 

The book “The Art of War”, written by Sun Tzu, has been receiving recognition in the business community for quite some time. The business world of today is becoming more and more competitive, which can often be compared to a battlefield. In the war against your competitors, applying the right strategy or tactic can give you a competitive advantage and lead to success in the end. 


Not only in business or at work we have to fight certain wars, in our personal life we also face different battles. These might include relationship issues of any kind, health problems, weight loss struggles or even battles against ourselves. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. 

Qi Men Dun Jia is basically a decision-making and problem-solving tool. With it we can determine specific strategies and tactics to apply for achieving our goals. At the same time, we can predict a certain outcome. Qi Men is often compared to a game of chess.

Possible applications include:

  • Starting a new business or business expansion

  • Closing business deals or signing contracts

  • Launching a new product or (marketing) campaign

  • Human Resource decisions and hiring

  • Optimizing sales

  • Investments and acquisitions (including real estate)


The basis of Qi Men Dun Jia is a special chart with certain parameters, which is basically a Qi (energy) map of a specific moment in time and space. With application of a variety of metaphysical methods and formulas this chart is analysed and used for prognosis and strategic planning. 

In essence, Qi Men enables us to make informed decisions. It shows us the right actions to take at the right time in order to increase our potential for success in achieving our goals. This applies to business and work as well as to personal endeavours. 

The art of Date Selection is based on our wish to do the right thing at the right time. 

Date Selection is an integral part of Chinese Metaphysics, which dates back as far as the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. – 220 A.D.). In ancient times, it had mainly strategic use in Warcraft, but also to choose the right time for prayer rituals and harvests. Over time it was further used for moving into a new house, marriages and burials. 

Today Date Selection finds application for a variety of business and personal events.

  • Starting or opening a new business 

  • Launching a new product or campaign

  • Business negotiations or important meetings

  • Job interview

  • Moving into a new house

  • Marriage

  • Medical treatments or procedures

Date Selection is based on the cyclical concept of time and energy. Energy changes constantly over time with a fluctuation of positive and negative energy. Subsequently, each day comes with a specific energy. Depending on this energy, a certain date might be beneficial for specific activities or events, but not suited for other activities. Of course, it is best to utilize the good days and avoid the bad ones. Important activities are preferably carried out when the energy is beneficial for that specific endeavour to maximize our potential for success. 

Timing is everything! Hence, Date Selection is a valuable tool to plan your important activities and enhance your chance of success in achieving your goals.

Chinese Metaphysics is an old Chinese science, studying time, space and events, which is used since ancient times for predictions and forecasting. Metaphysical practitioners have always been important advisors to the emperors in China.

In the center of Chinese Metaphysics is Qi, the invisible life force of the universe. Qi can be compared to a WiFi signal. A bad WiFi signal is like a blockage, which brings about obstacles and problems, whereas a good wifi signal opens up a variety of opportunities and enables us to achieve our goals.  

There are many different types and schools of Chinese Metaphysics, whereas I am specialised in Ba Zi, Qi Men Dun Jia and Date Selection.
