0000_12animasWhen a Bazi or 4P reader looks at a natal chart, by checking the number of  “4-cardinals, 4-births and 4-storages elements“, s/he could give a long talk on the personalities and characteristics of the  client in a flash.  The client may feel this reader is a “living deity” (Chinese slang for a good fortune-teller).

Keep reading if you want to know this “secret“.

These 3 groups of “4-xxxxx” elements are just different configurations of 12 branches with special properties.

12-branches sometimes are also represented by 12 Chinese zodiac animals:

zi-rat, chou-ox, yin-tiger, mao-rabbit, chen-dragon, si-snake, wu-horse, wei-ram, shen-monkey, you-rooster, xu-dog and hai-pig.

12-branches are separated into three configurations:

1.  Zi-wu-mao-you 子午卯酉 : 4-cardinals 四正

Zi-water, wu-fire, mao-wood and you-metal are called “4-cardinals” because they are located in the right angled locations (90, 180, 270 and 360 degrees) in a map.  Compared with other branches, 4-cardinals are purer energies and hence stronger.  Zi-wu-mao-you are also called “peach-blossom” elements.  People’s natal charts with more of these cardinal elements are usually attractive and emotional in love.  They also like to be leaders and extreme thinkers.  A natal chart with Zi-wu-mao-you together could be an emperor (like the chart of Qing Dynasty’s Qian-Long emperor) or a beggar or famous prostitute (if woman).  A chart with Zi-wu-mao-you filled up by luck period/s should be wary of serious accident or illness because zi-wu and mao-you clashes are clashes of strong and pure energies, not to mention zi-mao is also a serious penalty.

2.  Yin-shen-si-hai 寅申巳亥 : 4-births 四长生

Yin-wood, shen-metal, si-fire and hai-water are called “4-births” or “sub-cardinals” because they are the “birth place” of wood, metal, fire and water and also located in the 4- corners in a map.  People’s natal charts with more of these birth elements are usually active and creative.  DM with more than 2 of these birth elements cannot sit down for too long.  4-births are also called “traveling horse” elements, meaning frequent moves and traveling.  People with numerous birth elements are prone to traffic accidents and falling injuries because this configuration is easy running into yin-shen/ si-hai clashes and yin-si-shen 3-penalties.

3.  Chen-xu-chou-wei 辰戌丑未: 4-storages

Chen-xu-chou-wei are called 4-storages or tombs.  4-storages stand for wealth storage.  It also stands for DM’s tomb during old age.  Chen is wet yang earth and water storage or tomb.  Xu is hot yang earth and fire storage or tomb.  Chou is wet yin earth and metal storage or tomb.  Wei is dried earth and wood storage or tomb. People’s natal charts with more of these storage elements can accumulate wealth.  But they do not want to throw anything away.  They tend to be introvert, inactive and keep their emotions inside.  People with numerous storage elements can easily run into chou-xu-wei 3-penalties.  But it is not as serious as other 3-penalties.

You may go to bazi-calculator.com, key in your birthday and check how many of these 4-xxxxx elements that you have.

wealthluckMost people wish they have good wealth luck.  But according to yin-yang principle in Chinese metaphysics, positives exist only because negatives also exist.  The “goodies” that come with good wealth luck also accompany with some disadvantages or misfortunes.

Below are some of the disadvantages:

 

1.  Strong wealth elements imply numerous affairs

— Wealth element in male Bazi chart means wealth luck and woman luck.  Men with strong wealth luck usually includes “pian-cai” or “-wealth”.  This means mistress and numerous girl friends, creating difficulties in maintaining a “normal” or harmonious marital relationship.  This is easy to comprehend even without Bazi knowledge– men with money are likely to use money to attract women, not to mention some women like men with money.

2. Strong wealth elements could mean jinxing daymaster’s (DM) mother

— In Bazi formula, wealth controls resource.  What DM controls is wealth.  What gives birth to DM is resource element or mother.  For example, the mother of a Geng-metal DM is earth.  Wealth of a metal DM is wood.  By 5-elements theory, wood controls earth.  When a Geng-metal DM with strong wealth elements (wood), it means he also jinxing his mother (earth).   This usually means mother is chronically sick, suffers premature death or bad relationship with DM.

3. Strong wealth elements could mean unfilial or stupid offspring

— In Bazi formula, what DM nurtures or produces is shi-shen and shang-guan (output or children). DM’s output or talent produces wealth.  Hence wealth drains output or children.  DM with strong wealth elements will drain output even further and hence stupid or unfilial children.  We all have read about how rich kids squandered their family fortune.

Of course,  not every rich person will suffer these disadvantages due to other combinations in their natal chart like their social and karma background.

The definition of happiness is different for different people.  If one thinks rocky marital relationship, lacking maternal love and producing stupid kids, can justify good wealth luck, then these are not their disadvantages but “cost of doing business” for good wealth luck.  Some may think these sacrifices may be too much for good wealth luck.

I hope you feel better if your wealth luck is less than ideal.

BFFIt is not unusual to see BFF (best friend forever) “steals” boy friend from her friend.  The following Bazi characteristic list helps you filter out your potential man-snatcher pals before your treat them as BFF.  If you are not familiar with Bazi terms, simply go to bazi-calculator.com, enter your friend’s birthday and see if you find the specific elements listed below in her chart.

BAZI CHARACTERISTICS OF “MAN-SNATCHER” WOMAN

1.  Numerous -power (qi-sha) elements— charts with 2 or more qi-sha elements means there will be numerous men/ lovers in their life.  It means your man would be fair game.

2.  Numerous +peer (bi-jian) elements— charts with 2 or more bi-jian elements means the DMs like competition.  It means they like to show they can get your man, play with him for a while, dump him and get another target.

3.  Ding and Bing-fire daymasters—  Ding and Bing-fire daymasters are likely cheerful, passionate and attractive.  They may find it fun and all right to actively engage your man.

4.  Ren and Gui-water daymasters—  Ren and Gui-water daymasters are likely sentimental, emotional and likeable.  They tend to like or love another man easily.  If there is metal in their charts, they are likely attractive and draw your man into them easily.

If your friend’s chart has just one of the above characteristics, you put her on “watch list”.  If she has one or more of the above,  hide your man from her.

Good man is hard to come by.  Good luck safeguarding your “man-interest“.

If “your man” is easily tempted by another woman, you may not want to “keep” him either.

Knowledge of Bazi or 4-Pillars is very useful. It can help you find a “good man/ woman”, predict if and when your spouse will cheat or not, predicts your future lucks and even handle Feng Shui and date-selection.  It is difficult to cover all the mechanics involved in this blog, take the following course if you want to learn more:

handsome_manMy female students have been chasing me for the Bazi characteristics of “cute guys” for 10+ years because I have only told them the characteristics of beautiful women.

It is possible to guess the external appearance of someone by reading his or her birthday Bazi chart.  Below are the Bazi characteristics of cute or handsome guys (帅哥) in their natal charts.

1.  Presence of peach-blossom elements“Peach-blossom” elements are the “attraction index” in Bazi.  Zi (rat), wu (horse), mao (rabbit) and you (rooster) are the 4 peach-elements in Bazi.  People with these peach-blossom elements usually are attractive and sociable.

2.  Chart with metal and water mutual-nurturing  like 2 metal and 1 water elements or 1 metal and 2 water elements– the daymaster (DM) is likely to be intelligent,  have fair complexion and refined facial features.

3.  Chart with wood and fire mutual-nurturing— this DM is likely to be handsome (pretty if this is a woman) and intelligent.

4.  Chart with strong pian-cai (-wealth) elementspian-cai stands for lover/ mistress for male.  For example,  Jia and Yin-wood are the the pian-cai of a Geng-metal DM.  Men with strong pian-cai usually are attractive to opposite sex and look handsome.

5.  Chart with strong output stars (shang-guan/ shi-shen)– output stars stand talent and intelligence.  Men with strong output stars are usually sentimental, intelligent, romantic and accomplished.  People in the entertainment industries usually have strong output stars.

Actually, all the above characteristics except #4, are also predictors of pretty women!  You get a BOGO deal here.  This guide works for people with any sexual preference.

Pretty or not pretty, cute or not cute, are in the eyes of beholders.  It is not unusual to see “cute guys” pairing with “not so beautiful” girls or pretty girls with not so handsome dudes.  Assuming it is not due to “wealth factors“, it is usually the not so pretty/handsome party has numerous peach-blossom elements in his or her chart.

obese“First of all, we need to find out the major reason that people gain weight in terms of medicine and Chinese metaphysics. Simply put,  other than bad eating habit, junk food and life style choices, obesity is due to an individual has an efficient and overworked digestive system.  In terms of Bazi, if a person has strong earth element or strong shi-shen (-output) in his chart, he is likely to have an efficient digestive system or strong appetite.” taken from the Bonus Chapter, “Weight loss through Bazi and Feng Shui” in “Applied Bazi: Sickness Forecasting and Management” Video course.

In other words, besides eating habit and life style, whether one will be obese or not is also determined by his/ her Bazi natal chart.

Generally speaking, if your chart has “shi-shen” (-ouput), you have the potential of getting obese.  “Shi-shen” literally means “eating god” in Chinese.

shi_shen_obeseTo find if you have any shi-shen in your chart, simply go to bazi-calculator.com and key in your birthday.  First you find your day-master element (day column) and use it to check for shi-shen elements (in any column) in your chart.  The more shi-shen you have, the higher the potential of you getting obese.

Shi-shen is regarded as the “blessing god” for good appetite, self-indulgence in food and enjoying life.  Hence,  daymasters with strong shi-shen tend to get fat easily.

The location of shi-shen also affect the probability of getting obese.  The closer a shi-shen is near DM, the likely DM will get obese.  Shi-shen is closest to DM when it sits in day branch, month stem or hour stem.  Because month branch determines the temperature of the whole chart, so if shi-shen sits on day branch, it is also considered “near” the DM.

If shi-shen is not strong in the natal chart but luck period/s make/s it strong, DM may become obese during those luck period/s.

Besides output stars, one must also look at other elements in his/ her natal chart to make prediction on the possibility of obesity.  For example, if there is a resource star to control the output star, then the obesity may not happen or at least under control.  There are other factors affecting obesity like the presence or absence of peer and wealth stars.  It will take another article to explain.

happy_marriage“Good” here does not mean “perfect” but satisfactory or slightly above “average”.  Below are the 4-pillars or Bazi characteristics of women with good or better than average marriage.  I have included related tables for you to check if your own natal chart has these characteristics.  Simply click on the tables to enlarge them.  You need to go to bazi-calculator.com to generate your own Bazi chart first before using these tables.

BAZI CHARACTERISTICS OF WOMEN WITH GOOD MARRIAGES 

1.  Natal chart with “Zheng-guan/ Zheng-cai” (ZG/ ZC) OR “Zheng-guan/ Pian-cai” (ZG/ PC)

Zheng-guan (+power) represents husband for female chart.  ZC and PC are wealth elements. When a female chart has ZG/ZC or ZG/PC combination, DM will have a higher chance of marrying well, especially if ZG is the favorable element (yong-shen).

2.  Natal chart with “Zheng-guan/ Zheng-yin” (ZG/ ZY) OR  “Zheng-guan/ Pian-yin” (ZG/ PY)

Zheng-yin and Pian-yin stand for “resource” elements.  Power star (husband) nurtures resource star.  Female DM with power star nurturing resource star is emotionally stable, traditional, family-oriented and dedicated to husband and children.  Hence, she has a stable marriage though it is not too romantic.

3.  Natal chart with “Qi-sha/ Shi-shen” (QS/ SS) OR  “Qi-sha/ Shang-guan” (QS/ SG)

—  Female chart with strong output star usually is not good for marriage.  But if it has Qi-sha (-power) being controlled by output star, it fosters a good marriage.  There may be some small ups and downs but it will not significantly affect the marriage.

4.  Female Day Pillar with one of the followings:  Jia-zi, Yi-hai, Ding-hai, Gui-si, Ding-you, Ji-hai, Gui-mao and Ji-you.

— These day pillars have good branches that either nurtures the DM, is the husband star or wealth star or Nobleman star for the chart.  Hence a good marriage is expected.

5.  Female day-branch has Tian-yi, Tian-de or Yu-de Nobleman

— These are auspicious symbolic stars (shen-sha) for femaleThey may neutralize any disharmony in a marriage.
