The Chinese describe time as a combination of 2 kinds of energies: the energies from heaven and the energies from earth.
The energies from heaven are the 5 elements: water, wood, fire, earth and metal, each of them in a yang and yin phase. The yang is usually stronger and more calculated and energetic, the yin more subtle, delicate and emotional.
The energies from earth are the 12 zodiac animals: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar (Pig).
In the calculator you will see the combination of these energies written under the year of your birth, the month, the day and the hour. Because they are written one on top of the other it is called “pillars”.
The Four Pillars of Destiny are the Year pillar, the Month pillar, the Day pillar and the Hour pillar. There are some more pillars, but these are the most important ones.
All you have to do now is: to insert your date of birth into the calculator and choose the time zone and press “calculate”.
