    Do you consider the reading of one's Bazi as fortune telling?

    Bazi is the reading of one's life based on the date and time of birth. Have you had one or both experiences?  What impression has that left you?  Do you know whether there is a difference between the two?

    What's a Bazi. Not picking, i'm honestly ignorant, yet with a curiosity reminiscent of a child.

    Bazi's literal translation is "Eight characters".  The Chinese believe that everyone is born with a Bazi, which is how your life is going to be, based on the date and time of birth.  Of course the reading of the Bazi is more complex than just the date and time, there are calculations based on a person's life, from puberty onwards till death (bazi cannot predict exact death).  It can also help determine which is the best career one should go into.  It is more like an astrology in life.  Thinking of writing a hub on this, but it may not be of general interest to everyone. smile
