What are the 3 lucks shaping our lives?
The Three Lucks is a Taoist concept. It defines the forces at work in our lives and shaping up our desitny. The Three Lucks are defined as follow:
• Heaven luck
• Human luck
• Earth luck.
Heaven luck is the influence of the other realm (stars, divinities etc) on our lives and destinies. The notion of karma is part of Heaven luck. Chinese oracles techniques used for date selection tap into Heaven luck –by “catching” the universal luck at the right time and right location. Bazi (eight characters), or four pillars, is a form of Chinese astrology that shows the boundaries of our destiny as decided through Heaven luck. Used in conjunction with Feng Shui it achieves great results.
Human luck is our free will. Inside our boundaries we can still decide of the direction to give our lives, and it will influence our destiny and create a new karma. This is the Human factor that shapes our fate.
Earth luck is the influence of locations on our lives. Feng Shui deals with Earth luck. This influence of your home on your live is not to be minimized. Numerous people have reported that their life went “down the drain”, or quite the contrary became much better after a house move. Likewise, a location can make or break a business.
The three lucks have very tight bounds. For example, when choosing a house, you use your free will, this is the Human Luck. However the affinity for a place usually comes with the karma, part of the Heaven luck. The effect of this home on your life will trigger some of your karma, and influence your whole life – this is the Earth luck.

This philosophy help to understand and settle the endless issue of free will vs destiny. In the Taoist view of the world both free will and karma shape up our destiny: some events we have control on, some are meant to happen. It's not all black or white.
Altogether those 3 lucks control our whole lives – and with the use of Feng Shui and Chinese oracle we can therefore greatly enhance our destiny.
