Zi Wei Dou Shu (2) - Ziwei Domain

Ziwei is the name of the entire domain situated in the north pole of the sky globe. It consists mainly of a left wall and a right wall. Included in the domain is the Emperor Constellation together with his administrative staff.

Outside the domain is the most noticeable Big Dipper. The stars in the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) form the backbone of the major stars we use in Zi Wei Dou Shu.

Zi Wei refers to the Ziwei Domain. Dou refers to the constellation Bei Dou or the Big Dipper. Shu means destiny (as prescribed by a numeral). Therefore, the name of this system of astrology should be interpreted as "Ziwei and Beidou Destiny Analysis".

Dear Joseph,

With all the studies you offer, there is a reference to the Big Dipper.
Can I conclude it is the position of the Big Dipper that has the greatest effect on us here on earth?

Metaphysically, yes. We cannot expect a scientific proof of this hypothesis.
