(137) Same birthday leads to same destiny?
In a recent television variety show, one of the cast members revealed that the birthdays of two very famous stars are the same. They were born on the same day, year and even at the same hospital.
They are actor and singer Ryu Shi-won and actress Ko So-young.
Ryu has gained his popularity from several TV dramas and is now pursuing a successful career as a singer in Japan. Ryu is also reputable by the fact that he is the 14th-generation descendant of the Joseon Dynasty Prime minister, Yu Seong-ryong.
Ko may be one of the most enviable women in Korea, having married the heartthrob Jang Dong-gun, beside her own success as an actress and model. Jang is known as one of the most charming male Korean actors who has a huge fan base in Asia.
With their life stories revealed, it seems like the same saju may unfold toward a similar destiny. However, our lives do have various layers of fate. The saju, constituted by the five elements of universe and yin and yang, tells us the diverse aspects of our lives, not just whether they are fortunate or not.
As one of the most frequently asked questions ― what would be the destiny of the two with same birthdays ― you will see what is specifically told by saju of the same birthday, with this as a case study.
I have already explained that the environment where one is residing contributes to saju and to the activities of five elements. The desert and the arctic will obviously emanate different energy. The sea shore and mountain area will also affect one’s life with dissimilar environmental energy. What you do, whether you are a fisherman, or a mechanic, or a teacher, doctor, policeman, and so on, all shed different energy, either helpful or not, on your life.
On top of these environmental and professional influences, some factors (the five elements) are different between male and female saju. And the additional ten-year fortune is generated in an opposite sequence.
Let’s see how these are described by Ryu’s and Ko’s saju.
Both are born with the yang metal energy. Yang metal people are very decisive and have their own charisma.
Being born in the month of metal, they are quite strong internally and externally. Having a lusty expression star in the year pillar portrays their innate talents well. This also implies the power of their ancestors.
The reputation or respect is seated on the month stem with abundant energy. The knowledge star also represents their mother.
For healthy and strong saju like this, we must read the status of expression, wealth and career stars, as these three stars may play an important role to balance the energy stream.
Expression star drains the energy of the day master.
The day master loses its energy in order to control the money star.
The career star restrains the day master and the day master is disciplined by the career star.
Considering the fact that month, day and time pillars are more critical to determine one’s life, we must pay special attention to the status of the career star in this case.
For reference, the month pillar rules the entire environment of saju, the day pillar denotes the status of marriage life and the time pillar tells one’s later lives and of the children.
By the way, this career star implies different aspects between male and female saju. It represents husband for a woman, while it is children for a man. For both male and female, it denotes one’s career, power and reputation.
In Ko’s and Ryu’s saju, Ko may have her best fortune with her husband, while it is his children for Ryu. In the meantime, the reputation is obvious and fortunate for both of them.
Consequently, having same saju does not always mean same destiny. I have experienced reading same saju of two people. They share some aspects of the same fate but there also are other aspects to differentiate them.
