Chapter 51: Change fate against God.
Shen Yuanye knew why Chen Long’s attitude had changed so quickly.
She had followed Chen Long’s Weibo again yesterday and saw the latest future, and only then did she know that there was a problem with the Linglong Bay project.
Ancient tombs were highly valued in China.
Cultural relics, corpses, and the scale of the tombs all reflect the cultural ideas of a specific dynasty, which was very helpful to historical research.
Once an ancient tomb was found on the land that was in the hands of a real estate agent, it was basically impossible that the land would be left untouched.
Instead, it would be directly taken over by the country.
Of course, there were subsidies, but for those who had already invested, it didn’t help much anymore since they could not recover their investment.
If Chen Long had won the bid for the Linglong Bay project, his funds would not have been recovered at all, and bankruptcy would have been possible.
Now that he had avoided it, he naturally believed it.
Shen Yuanye smiled, as if it was inevitable.

Shen Yuanye nodded, “I see.”
It was easy enough for her to say she wouldn’t count herself.
Even Weibo couldn’t predict her future.
Rebirth was enough.
The rest, she would leave up to fate.
Cheng Feiqiong told her about metaphysics like a story.
“… Metaphysics is the earliest one in “Zhou Yi”, also known as “The Book of Changes”.
The line and hexagram divination techniques in it have been passed down to this day.
The most famous is Yuan Tiangang, and it is not an exaggeration to call him the ancestor master.
Many of his works and books in the world have been used by us until now.
Yuan Tiangang….Shen Yuanye knew him.
His reputation could be said to be very huge.
Basically, in the unofficial history and drama films about Wu Zetian, they would mention a small segment about him, which was to calculate Wu Zetian’s future.
There was not the slightest error.
Wu Zetian was clever and intelligent, and she was even more charming, but she was only a small lady-in-waiting after entering the palace.
It was because of Yuan Tiangang’s calculation that Emperor Tang Taizong was suspicious of her.
Shen Yuanye was thinking about it in a trance, but Cheng Feiqiong in front of her had already talked about another matter.
“…There is one more thing.
Divulging the secrets of life for others is actually committing five evils and three deficiencies.
The five evils refer to widow, reticence, solitary, loneliness, and the disabled, and the three deficiencies are life, power, and money.
As my apprentice, you don’t lack money and power.
As for fate…”
He suddenly stopped.
Shen Yuanye immediately concentrated.
Regarding the matter of her rebirth, God himself knew, as did she, that she had never said anything about it to anyone else.
Even Cheng Feiqiong, of course, didn’t know it either.
When Cheng Feiqiong saw her suddenly becoming nervous, he finally sighed, said a few words, and changed the subject.
Shen Yuanye was slightly startled, and then she recovered and continued to listen.
Geomantic omen fortune-telling was actually regarded as a feudal superstition by many people.
If there was no such thing as rebirth, then she, herself, would not have trusted this, but now, it is just the opposite.
She had heard the saying about five evils and three deficiencies during her previous research, and those who told other people’s destiny didn’t last long in the end.
But she didn’t regret choosing this career.
What was the difference between using Weibo to predict the future of others and then changing other people’s lives, and using fortune-telling to inform
She just didn’t know how Mr.
Cheng saw this matter.
“It is the most shameful thing to use fortune-telling metaphysics to defraud money,” Cheng Feiqiong, who didn’t know what she was thinking, continued to exhort.
“Only quackers can use such a bit of profound art to seek ill-gotten gains, and they can calculate one side of a matter.”
He casually said the names of a few so-called masters.
One of them was one that Shen Yuanye could search for on Weibo.
There were nearly one million fans following his account.
Every day, there were people who mentioned him, left comments, and asked him to tell them their fortune.
In Cheng Feiqiong’s mouth, he was an incompetent person.
He could deceive ordinary people by relying on a little bit of inexperience they had.
It was impossible for him to stand upright in front of everyone.
Compared with him, Mr.
Cheng’s Weibo fans are useless.
Shen Yuanye suddenly remembered the comments she had seen on his Weibo after returning a few days ago, and couldn’t help but raise the corners of her lips.
Those netizens probably thought that Mr.
Cheng was a big liar.
Cheng Feiqiong, standing in front of her, suddenly asked: “Do you know how to tell whether a person’s life is hard or not”
Shen Yuanye was caught off guard by this question.
After thinking for a moment, she hesitated and said, “It depends on the birth date”
She had gotten this from looking at usual sayings, but she was not sure if it was right.
“The birth date is correct, but do you know how to calculate it” Cheng Feiqiong suddenly put a palm-sized Bagua instrument on the table.
Shen Yuanye looked over it and found that there were many lines on it, as well as many small sections with different words written in them and directional terms.
“The eight characters for birthday can be calculated using the Bagua instrument.”
While talking, Cheng Feiqiong wrote the year, month, and day on a piece of paper, even accurate to the specific hour.
Shen Yuanye stared closely.
“A person’s birthday is composed of the heavenly stems and the earthly branches.
This involves the ancient chronology.
The difference in composition leads to the difference in the eight characters.
As he spoke, he marked the zodiac with the date just written on the side.
Shen Yuanye had memorized it before and she could still remember it.
It really looked like something like this.
Shen Yuanye knew what the heavenly stems and earthly branches were.
She used to watch dramas and read novels, and the orphanage director had said it, but these were basically no longer needed, except by some geomantic omen masters.
“Hard life means that the horoscope is hard, and the five elements are more complete.
This is why the newborn child’s name should be calculated using the eight birth characters and a few lines should be added.
If there is a lack of water, then the name is related to water, such as the word “Miao”.
If there is a lack of fire, then the words related to fire, such as “Yan” and “Yi”.”
“If Kui Gang appears in the four pillars of the eight characters, it means hard life…”
Cheng Feiqiong was obviously very familiar with these things and was speaking continuously.
Shen Yuanye had to concentrate in order to retain all of the information.
The most fundamental of all knowledge was that of heavenly stems and earthly branches.
She had memorized it, but it was still a cumbersome thing to actually apply it.
Cheng Feiqiong’s knowledge was something she couldn’t finish learning in just a few days.
Maybe she would have to learn it until she was old.
But when she thought of the fact that she could truly possess metaphysical skills, instead of relying solely on Weibo’s foresight, she had endless motivation.
Although Weibo’s prediction was her account, which could only be seen by her eyes, it was not something that couldn’t disappear and would be with her all the time.
To put it more bluntly, if Weibo suddenly disappeared, then she wouldn’t be able to do anything.
Therefore, those fortune-telling masters who were using this status needed to be supported by true metaphysics.
In the future, facing Jiang Pan would be easier.
Shen Yuanye blinked her eyes.
It was still very promising to become Mr.
His knowledge and status were beyond the reach of ordinary people.
She could benefit for life.
It wasn’t until the evening, when Cheng Feiqiong finally finished teaching, “Tomorrow afternoon, you will go to Liu’s house with me to practice the truth (EDN: Chinese slang that younger people would use.).”
Shen Yuanye couldn’t help but smile.
“Master, you know what that is”
Cheng Feiqiong glared, “Why don’t I understand I am also a person born in the new century, so why can’t I use this sentence “
Shen Yuanye nodded, “It can be used by you.”
Cheng Feiqiong was satisfied now and muttered again that he hadn’t been able to go out recently to buy roasted yams, and he had no more to eat.
When Cheng Xun came back from outside and saw her, he smiled and said, “Yuanye is also here.
Do you want to stay for dinner”
Before Shen Yuanye spoke, Cheng Feiqiong said: “Flattery with no reason is either craftiness or stealing.
Chen Xun, can you do some human things
Being told that, Cheng Xun felt wronged.
Didn’t he just invite his apprentice Why did it become flattery for no reason The master didn’t want his apprentice to stay for dinner and even scolded him.
Shen Yuanye shook her head and said, “No thanks, I have something to do when I go back.”
Cheng Feiqiong stuffed the Bagua instrument into her arms and exhorted, “Go back and take a good look.
You must draw it with your eyes closed.
Otherwise, don’t enter my house next time.
I won’t see you.
“You said the same thing last time.” Cheng Xun interrupted.
Cheng Feiqiong put his hands on his back and said, “That’s because you heard it wrong.”
Shen Yuanye curled her eyebrows and her eyes and did not disturb the bickering of the father and son.
She followed Uncle Li outside, where the driver had already been arranged.
The Liu family, Cheng Feiqiong had mentioned was famous in Beijing.
Shen Yuanye didn’t watch TV very often, but as long as something happened in Beijing on Weibo, he had to be mentioned in the comments below.
One could imagine how well-known he was.
She didn’t remember it deeply, so she searched the Internet again.
The Liu family owned a mansion in Bei Jing called Xuyang, which had the same characters as Liu Xuyang’s name.
He and his wife, Lin Siyu, worked together to obtain the wealth they have today.
Wealth and status were all there, but the only regret was that the husband and wife were both in their forties and they didn’t even have a child.
She remembered what she had seen on Weibo a few months ago.
Lin Siyu had spent more than a year abroad taking care of her body.
She was pregnant soon after returning.
At that time, when she was browsing Weibo, it seemed like she was about to give birth.
She didn’t know why she had to go to their house.
Both of them had real-name verified Weibo accounts.
If she followed, she would surely get a lot of information and know what to calculate.
But Shen Yuanye suppressed her thoughts.
She had to look at what she had heard and learned next to Cheng Feiqiong, and finally combine it with her Weibo foresight to get the facts more accurately.
Shen Yuanye remembered the eight words Cheng Feiqiong said about her life.
“To change your fate against God’s will is the most undesirable.”
Once reborn, her life was also changed.
