Mantak Chia’s Inner Alchemy Astrology (IAA) is authentic Chinese astrology,
known as Ba Zi or Four Pillars, based on the ancient Chinese Solar Calendar.
The calculated personal birth chart 5 element data is converted into an energy image,
based on 5 element percentages, making chart reading easier. From this image we can work out how best to use Inner Alchemy Practices, both Qi Gong and Nei Dan meditations, to balance and harmonize our lives. Adding on the changing energy cycles, we can see their influence on the path of our lives and adapt our inner alchemy practice accordingly.
Traditional Chinese calculations of very favorable, favorable, neutral and unfavorable element energies can bring balance to the person’s chart and help us to see where imbalance comes from and how to use inner alchemy practice to harmonize them.
Our 5 element make-up and organ energy analysis table can be interpreted as a psychological profile and a medical constitution of the person, showing underlying tendencies, many of which can be modified with practices. Our elements’ strengths and weaknesses show our skills and challenges and consulting the IAA personal chart can explain much about our lives. We can use this knowledge in our relationships with others and choosing our professional avenues.
By practicing inner alchemy we enhance skills and energy we need more of, and weaken energies which are negative to us. The difference between ‘ordinary’ Chinese Astrology and IAA, is that IAA can empower you to harmonize your life by working on your inner 5 element core and so you need to have some knowledge or interest in the taoist 5 Elements Theory. This is not mere ‘doom, gloom and get rich’ predictions.
