There is a slight confusion regarding the birth date of Li Ka-shing. Some sources state that he was born on the 29th of July in 1928. In order for his chart to be so favorable, his birth date should be the 28th of July and his hour of birth should be the late rat hour. This is where the confusion lies. In the Bazi system, the new day commences at 0000 hours but in some other systems, the new day begins at 2300 hours. If you are familiar with Qi Men Dun Jia, then you will know that every new day starts at 2300 hour. So, some sources took it that he was born in the first hour of 29th but he was actually born in the last hour of 28th.
Li Ka-shing's chart is a fake vibrant chart and a fake vibrant chart is treated as a weak chart which means that the ji daymaster wants to be strengthen further. So, his favorable stars are the earth, fire and also wood since bing fire protrudes. Just like a weak chart, a fake vibrant chart also harnesses wealth through the self stars. As you can see, his self stars are strongly rooted. Furthermore, the strongly rooted fire resource stars also enhance the self stars. Besides being the Useful god, the 2 favorable bing stars also make him another favorite son of the Heavens. Remember that bing is favorable only when it is positive.
His only unfavorable star is his negative wealth gui which is hidden inside zi. So, what must he be careful of? Well, just to give you a clue, which palace does this negative wealth star lie in?
If you look at his first 2 luck pillars, you will notice that he had his negative metal output protruding and strongly rooted. So, Li Ka-shing actually had a humble beginning. His father passed away when he was a teenager and he had to leave school at the age of fifteen. After which, he found a job and he was working 16 hours a day in a plastic trading company. Things started to change in his water protruding luck pillars. Although water stars are negative but they can be "controlled" by his strongly rooted earth stars. Li Ka-shing started his business empire through property which is his favorable earth industry. He has since diversified and at present all his listed companies in Hong Kong make up about 15% capitalization in the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
Li Ka-shing is regarded as one of the most generous philanthropists in Asia. Up to date, he has donated about USD1.4 billion to many various charities and victims of natural disasters. Well, most billionaires are very generous and their wealth will just multiply again after they have contributed to good and noble causes.
Li Ka-shing is now 87 years old and in his positive wu-chen luck pillar. It is forming a positive fu-yin with the year pillar. Guess what? His next luck pillar is ji-si which also forms a positive fu-yin with the day pillar. Will he reach the 100 years old mark?
