For example, here is a Female chart. This chart was handed to me by one of my students. He wanted me to have a look of this chart.
I had a look then I told my student that this person in 2006 had an abortion and since her health is not too good. My student confirmed with the owner of the chart.
The answers were correct.
Then, he thought for a while and asked me why it was an abortion but why not giving birth to a baby. He knew in Chinese Astrology Bazi Four Pillars of Destiny, the Abortion and Giving birth to a baby have same kind of signals.
This is a very good question. Obviously he is using his brain.
My answer to him was if this person was born 60 years ago in 1927. She would have giving birth to a baby in stead of an abortion. Reading a Chinese Astrology Bazi Four Pillars of Destiny chart we need to incorporate the Earth Luck (the social trend) into it. It is because nowadays, the average marriage age is higher. The sex mindset is more opened. If it was 60 years ago, she would be married and having kids. But now the society has changed.
