Over the next few weeks I’ll be publishing 12 Animal Fortunes for the Earth Pig Year. In the first section of each post you’ll find funny and insightful thoughts on the nature of each Zodiac Animal from my teacher, Richard Ashworth. Richard and I have teamed up to inform and possibly entertain you. We want to help you prepare for the Earth Pig Year.
To get the most meaning out of the Animal Fortunes you’ll want to know all four of the animals in your BaZi. Ask me if you don’t already know. I’ll get back to you ASAP.
I had been studying Feng Shui for years before I came across U.K. based Feng Shui Master Richard Ashworth’s Feng Shui Diaries in 2014. I knew instantly that he was the teacher I had been looking for all along. Unlike other teachers I had wanted to study with, Richard is available one on one via Skype. That’s a huge value for your tuition, plus you can be anywhere in the world and study with him.
I currently study BaZi and Feng Shui with Richard. I’ve been his student and mentee for 2+ years. As a diviner and a person who is always looking for meaning, my time with Richard has changed my life. Currently, I am working on writing my first book. That’s a dream I never thought would happen.
Richard’s humanistic approach, dedication to traditional Chinese methods, and sheer depth of knowledge all come together in his generous, yet challenging teaching style. Richard’s course materials are packed with information and presented in a way that makes the subject more accessible than I have ever experienced before. He is caring, a great listener, responsive to questions, and open minded to new ideas. Whatever level of interest you have in Feng Shui, studying with Richard will enhance the quality of your life.
And – if you’re looking to turn your esoteric knowledge of Chinese Metaphysics into a business, I highly recommend Richard’s mentoring. He is unique in that he came to Feng Shui with a background as a successful entrepreneur. As to my own business, I have found his advice about marketing my skills to be especially effective.

About Richard Ashworth
Richard Ashworth is probably best known for introducing authentic Chinese
Imperial Feng Shui to BBC tv’s Housebusters and for his book The Feng Shui
Diaries which apart from anything else, may be the funniest on the subject to date.
Richard has studied with a series of masters over a period of decades including
attending Huazhong University in Central China. His direct, authoritative and
humorous approach has changed lives for the better from Poland to New Zealand.
He has worked with A-Listers such as Gillian Anderson (who said he “commands
both confidence and awe”) and Britain’s favourite Interior Designer Kelly
Hoppen (who called him “the person I trust with my own space”). He has been the
subject of the Sunday Times ‘A Life in the Day’ and advised Big Brother’s Little
In 2012 he became one of very few Western masters to address the Singapore
International Feng Shui Conference and in 2008 was co-chair of the 1st International
Congress on Scientific Feng Shui in Turin. A regular enquirer of The Course in
Miracles and a longterm student of the Book of Changes, Richard is happily married
with six grown-up children.
At any given time Richard is teaching a dozen or so students feng shui and ba zi
(that is Chinese Astrology) either in groups or via Skype/Zoom online. No prior
knowledge of Chinese culture is required although many of Richard’s students are
themselves professionals. Details are available from firstname.lastname@example.org
