Below are the Bazi characteristics of women who are likely remain childless or at the most, giving birth to girls and not boys.

1.  Strong DM (daymaster, the woman) with strong resource stars (zheng-yin/ pian-yin) but no wealth star (zheng-cai/ pian-cai).  For example, strong Jia-wood DM with strong water but no earth.

2.  Weak DM with strong output stars (shang-guan/ shi-shen) but weak resource stars (zheng-yin/ pian-yin).  For example, weak Jia-wood DM with strong fire but weak water.

3.  Weak DM with strong wealth stars (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) meeting resource stars (zheng-yin/ pian-yin).  For example, weak Jia-wood DM with strong earth and water.

4.  Weak DM with strong power stars (zheng-guan/ qi-sha).  For example, weak Jia-wood DM with strong metal.

5.  Charts with any one of the following conditions:

  • over-strong fire and dried earth
  • strong wet earth and metal
  • over-strong water floating wood
  • freezing metal and cold water
  • numerous resource stars
  • over-strong power and wealth stars
  • too many output stars

The reasons behind the above are given in my private Bazi discussion groups along with this article.  You can easily figure it out if you convert the transformation stars (“10-gods“) into 5-elements relationship and yin-yang balance.

Believe it or not, you can find out if your marriage rocks, so-so or sucks from the day-pillar of your Bazi chart.MaritalBliss

The first part or stem of your day-pillar represents you, the “daymaster” or DM.  The second part or branch is the “spouse palace” and represents your spouse.  The “star” sits in your spouse palace will give you a glimpse of your marital bliss.

Don’t worry if you do not know Bazi.  You can read the Appendix below to figure out your day-pillar using your birthday.

MARITAL BLISS IN TERMS OF DAY-BRANCH

1. Male day branch with zheng-cai or pian-cai  (wealth star)

Day Pillars:  Yi-chou, Yi-wei, Bing-shen, Ding-you, Wu-zi, Ji-hai, Geng-yin and Ren-wu.  乙丑,乙未,丙申,丁酉,戊子,己亥,庚寅,壬午

  • Wealth is the wife star for a male daymaster.  Wealth sits in spouse palace for a man is called “Star and palace in the same place” 宫星同位.  This usually stands for a happy and perfect marriage.  If wealth star is also favorable, it means this man getting rich through wife or enjoying wife’s wealth. (Rating: Best)

2. Female day branch with zheng-guan or qi-sha (power star)

Day Pillars:  Jia-shen, Yi-you, Ding-hai, Ji-mao, Geng-wu, Xin-si, Gui-chou and Gui-wei. 甲申,乙酉,丁亥,己卯,庚午,辛巳,癸丑,癸未

  • Power is the husband star for a female daymaster.  Power star sits in spouse palace for a woman is called “Star and palace in the same place” 宫星同位.  This usually stands for a happy and perfect marriage.  If power star is also favorable, it means this couple love each other deeply and enjoy fame and wealth. (Rating: Best)

3. Both male and female day branch with zheng-yin or pian-yin (resource star)

Day Pillars:  Jia-zi, Yi-hai, Bing-yin, Ding-mao, Wu-wu, Ji-si, Geng-chen, Geng-xu, Xin-chou, Xin-wei, Ren-shen and Gui-you 甲子,乙亥,丙寅,丁卯,戊午,己巳,庚辰,庚戌,辛丑,辛未,壬申,癸酉

  • Resource stands for mother or older generation.  Resource star sits in your spouse palace means your spouse is like your mother nurturing and pampering you.  A Chinese saying goes “Marrying a mother-like wife or father-like husband” 娶妻像娘,嫁夫如父 .  This usually stands for a happy marriage.  It would be perfect If resource star is also favorable.  (Rating: Good)

4. Daymaster sitting on Shi-shen or Shang-guan (output star)

Day Pillars:  Jia-wu, Yi-si, Bing-chen, Bing-xu, Ji-you, Geng-zi, Xin-hai, Ren-yin and Gui-mao. 甲午,乙巳,丙辰,丙戌,己酉,庚子,辛亥,壬寅,癸卯

  • For male, output star nurtures wealth or wife star. So even output star is not the right star to sit in spouse palace, it still enhances wife star.  This situation will be good for strong male DM that favors wealth star (means a good marriage), but unfavorable for weak male DM (implying a disharmonious marriage). (Rating: OK)
  • For female, output star controls power or husband star. So not only output star is not the right star to sit in spouse palace, it further hurts husband star.  This usually means a less than satisfactory marriage if not jinxing the husband. (Rating: Bad)

5. Daymaster sitting on  Bi-jian or Jie-cai  (peer star)

Day Pillars:  Jia-yin, Yi-mao, Bing-wu, Ding-si, Wu-xu, Wu-chen, Ji-wei, Ji-chou, Geng-shen, Xin-you, Ren-zi and Gui-hai. 甲寅,乙卯,丙午,丁巳,戊戌,戊辰,己未,己丑,庚申,辛酉,壬子,癸亥

  • Peer star stands for competitions, friends and siblings which will “snatch” wealth away.  When it sits in the spouse palace, it means competition to take your spouse away if not jinxing the wife!
  • For male DM, with peer instead of wealth star inside spouse palace, it is the “sign” for wife being “snatched” away.  This means marital disharmony and affair. (Rating: Bad)
  • For female DM, with peer instead of wealth star inside spouse palace, it is the “sign” for husband being “snatched” away.  Wealth nurtures power (husband) in Bazi.  But peer “snatches” wealth away and weakens the husband.  This means marital disharmony and affair.  This also has a relatively higher divorce rate. (Rating: OK)

This is a quick-and-easy way to check one’s marital bliss.  A more accurate reading would be taking into consideration of other stars and not just the star inside the spouse palace.

In Bazi,  one’s natal chart determines the “quality” of the chart.  But it is only part of the destiny pie.  A “good quality” chart still “sucks” if its luck periods do not bring in the elements that the chart needs to prosper.

There are two types of “luck period“– the “10-years luck” (10YL) and “annual luck” (AL).  10YL is calculated in terms of one’s birth month, which is different from person to person.  10YL provides the backdrops or “climate” of one’s luck within that 10-years period.

Annual luck means one’s overall luck for current year. In Bazi, everyone shares the same AL.  For example, current year 2017 is ding-you (fire-rooster) year.  Every person in the world is subject to the influences of the same annual luck of ding-you.  If fire and metal are favorable to one’s chart, one will enjoy better luck within 2017.  If otherwise, one’s luck will be below average.  The important thing about AL is:  Any fortune or misfortune will be triggered by AL because it brings the favorable or unfavorable elements to the chart.

In this post, we will keep it simple by focusing on how annual luck affects your luck:

1.  AL “fan-yin” or “fu-yin” 10YL:  “Fan-yin” means stem clashing stem and branch clashing branch between two pillars.  “Fu-yin” means two identical pillars.  Fan-yin and fu-yin usually are unfavorable to the daymaster (DM) and jinx his/her close relatives.

2.  Strong DM with AL brings in wealth, power and output (cai, guan and shi-shang) elements means favorable fortune for the year.  But if AL brings in resource and/ or peer (yin or bi-jian) elements, it means misfortune for the year.

3.  Weak DM with AL brings in resource and/ or peer (yin and bi-jian) elements means favorable fortune for the year.  But if AL brings in wealth, power and/ or output (cai, guan and shi-shang) elements, it means misfortune for the year.

4.  10YL is favorable with AL brings in zheng-cai (+wealth), zheng-guan (+power), zheng-yin (+resource), shi-shen (-output), and/ or bi-jian (-peer),  means current year fortune will be enhanced even further.  If AL brings in jie-cai (+peer), qi-sha (-power), pian-yin (-resource) and/ or shang-guan (+output), means current year fortune will be mixed with both good and bad fortune.

5.  10YL is unfavorable with AL brings in zheng-cai (+wealth), zheng-guan (+power), zheng-yin (+resource), shi-shen (-output), and/ or bi-jian (-peer),  means current year fortune will have minor fortunes but major mishaps.  If AL brings in jie-cai (+peer), qi-sha (-power), pian-yin (-resource) and/ or shang-guan (+output), means current year fortune will be very bad.

6.  AL stem/ branch combine with day pillar is generally considered good luck for the year.  AL fan-yin  (clashing stems and branches) or fu-yin (identical pillars) day-pillar is generally negative for DM because it affects DM and the spouse palace directly.  Usually this means something going on with marital relationship or personal sickness/ disaster.

7.  The stem and branch of AL are favorable elements (“yong-shen“) of the natal chart would imply the year will be auspicious or fortunate.  If unfavorable (“ji-shen“), the year will be below average or unfortunate.

Anyway, the above is a rough guideline for making annual luck interpretations.  You still have to take the whole chart and both luck periods into consideration to make more accurate predictions.

This time we discuss application of the “void” concept in Bazi.  It’s void theory is based on the pairing of stems and branches and not borders between two mountains or palaces as in Feng Shui.

void210 heavenly stems and 12 earthly branches are the “ABC” of Chinese metaphysics.  So almost every subject like Bazi, QMDJ, date-selection, divination and etc.,  have something on “void branch” due to the imbalance of this “10 stems” vs. “12 branches“.  Two of the branches will be left out with no stems to pair with them.  These two branches are called “void branches“.

There are 60 binomials (pairing of a stem and a branch of the same polarity or gender) categorized into 6 groups or “Xun“.  Each xun has 10 binomials.  Members of each of these 6 groups have the same two void branches.  For example, members of the Jia-zi group ( Jia-zi, Yi-chou, Bing-yin, Ding-mao, Wu-chen, Ji-si, Geng-wu, Xin-wei, Ren-shen, Gui-you) have the same Xu and Hai as their void branches.

Void” means nothing or disappeared.  The effects of a branch sitting on void is usually minimal or discounted by over 50%.

Void branches are classified in terms of:

  • year, month, day and hour branches
  • 10 transformation stars
  • 5-elements
  • “breaking bridge”
  • “horseback”
  • “mutual exchange”
  •  and more

Here we just cover the 10 transformation stars or “10 Gods” on void.  For further info and remedies, please consult my “Destiny and Luck Management with Bazi” courses.  The following table is an excerpt from this “Destiny and Luck Management” course manual. 

TRANSFORMATION STARS AND VOID

Another way of looking at void branch is to check the branch in terms of the transformation star it represents.  For example, if the star is zheng-yin (resources) sits on void branch, it stands for lack of help or relationship with mother or older females or lack of or reduced academic progress for that period represented by the pillar.

There are no commonly agreed translations of 4P terms. Different schools or teachers translate 4P terms according to his/her personal preferences. There are three major rules used in translations:

  1. Literal translations: This simply gives a faithful and very often, horrible (in terms of culture shock) translations of the terms. For examples, “shi-shen” is translated as “eating god”, “qi-sha” becomes “7-killings”, “shang-guan” becomes “hurting officials or officers” and the likes. Problem with literal translations is that it may bias students’ perception towards certain terms as “bad” because it sounds horrible. In reality, every one of the “10 gods” or ‘transformation stars” (my terminology) can be positive or negative depending on the composition of the 4P chart. Another common misconception is the ubiquitous uses of the term “god” in 4P, like “useful god” (yong shen), “enmity god” (chou shen) and the like, making 4P sound “religious” when it is actually more statistical in nature.
  1. Pin-yin translations: This gives a transliteration of the 4P terms like “shi-shen”, “zheng-guan” and etc. It takes some time to get used to these foreign terms. But it is great when you go back to the original Chinese texts or switching teachers/school.
  1. Translation based on interpreted meanings: This translates the 4P terms based on the understanding of the translator. For example, shi-shen and shang-guan are translated as “output” stars. But different people have different understanding of the terms, so the translations can sometimes be confusing and shocking as well. Good translations under this should be “value-free” or NOT “value-laden”. It should also give meanings that are faithful or close to the original meanings of the terms. The translated terms should not influence the perception of the readers and students.
  1. Mixing of all of the above

The following examples are the common translations of 4P’s “10 gods” or “transformation stars”:

4P TERMS: 10 GODS OR TRANSFORMATION STARS TRANSLATIONS

1. Jie-cai 劫财

  • Ken: JC, +peer (“+” stands for polarity “yang”)
  • Others: rob wealth, competitor, unfriendly parallel, contender-star, unfriendly partner

Bi-jian 比肩 

  • Ken: BJ, -peer (“-” stands for polarity “yin”)
  • Others: friend, colleague, unfriendly parallel, friend-star, friendly buddy             

Zheng–cai 正财

  • Ken: ZC, +weatlh
  • Others: direct wealth, income, regular weatlh, proper wealth, main income, expected wealth, wife-star

Pian-cai 偏财

  • Ken: PC, –wealth
  • Others: indirect wealth, wealth, unbecoming wealth, unexpected wealth, unexpected property, windfall star, godsend wealth, unexpected possession

Zheng-yin 正印 

  • Ken: ZY, +resource
  • Others: direct resource, resource/education, proper resource, main funds, proper care, mother-star, willingly nourished

Pian-yin 偏印 

  • Ken: PY, –resource
  • Others: indirect resource, resource/education, unbecoming resource, unexpected funds, unbecoming care, guardian star, unwillingly nourished

Shang-guan

  • Ken: SG, +output
  • Others: hurting officer, intelligence/aspirations, drastic ouput, actor-star, offending-star, harsh output

Shi-shen 食神 

  • Ken: SS, –output
  • Others: eating god, intelligence/aspirations, gracious output, artist-star, food-star, emotional IQ

Zheng-guan 正官 

  • Ken: ZG, +power
  • Others: direct officer, power/status, proper power, discipline, angel star, the obedience

Qi-sha 七杀 

  • Ken: QS, –power
  • Others: 7-killings, power/status, unbecoming power, unbecoming discipline, evil star, the stern

My personal bias is trying to make the translated terms as neutral as possible, so as not influencing the reader’s perception. Each of these 10 “stars” or “gods” can be positive or negative depending on the combination of the natal chart and luck periods.

I do not mean other translations are not as “good” or “horrible” as mine. Translations reflect the worldviews, command of the Chinese language and mental conditions of the translators.
