Ba Zi Eight Characters in Forecasting Top Political Destiny
It is said that presidential candidates in the South Korean elections would seek out the advice of geomancers to the extent that some would shift their ancestors' bones to new tomb sites. The traditional belief is that astrology and Feng Shui can determine high rulership or leadership.
In the 28th March 2010 (so-called Year of Metal Tiger) the MCA (Malaysian Chinese Association) party had its general elections. The contest between the three candidates was keenly watched. On 21st March 2010, one Feng Shui analysed the Ba Zi charts of the three candidates:
- Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting: Nov 15, 1956 - Yang Fire Monkey
- Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat: Nov 22, 1956 - Yang Fire Monkey
- Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek: Jan 2, 1947 - Fire Dog
Using Ba Zi Eight Characters Divination the Feng Shui analyst wrote off Dr Chua and predicted that the fight was really between the two Ongs. The analyst betted on Ong Tee Keat. However, Dr. Chua won and Ong Tee Keat had the lowest votes!
The analyst had ignored the greatest sign that the Year of Metal Tiger clashes with the sign of the Monkey, meaning the year would be bad for the two Ongs. Dr Chua's Dog sign is in San He harmony with the Tiger and would have a good year. Thus, the animals signs favoured Dr Chua, which was what the election results showed.
