With an expected oversupply of good and services, cash will be king. However, those with less cash can still do great if they can find ways to barter trade in a way that is beneficial to both parties. Be on the look out for win-win situations!

For consumers it’s not looking too good. There’s going to be a shortage of water and food. Be ready for increases in petrol, transportation and food prices.

Making sense of 8 characters


elcome to our first Bazi 101 column. Over the course of these columns, we’ll be helping you make sense of all those Chinese characters in those little boxes. In this column we’ll introduce the Bazi Chart, which is a natal or birth chart. Bazi literally means eight characters. In Bazi, each person’s date and time of birth is translated into 8 characters that fill up the 8 boxes of the Bazi Chart. As you can see, the 8 boxes of the Bazi Chart comprise 4 columns and 2 rows. The 4 columns are referred to as the Four Pillars and represent Pillars for your

hour, date, month and year of birth. Each of these Four Pillars relate to different aspects of your life in terms of relationships, career and health. What does the Bazi Chart tell us? All about you! Your character is revealed in your chart. You will know your strengths, your weaknesses and your attitudes.

time pillars, which represent the experiences, events and people that will come into your life at different times. By combining your Bazi Chart and time pillars, you can plan your life path to make the most of opportunities and reduce obstacles.
