dangerToday is your lucky day to find many unlucky scenarios that you do not want to see in your Bazi chart.

The conditions listed below usually signal serious misfortunes like accidents, surgery, severe illness, losing major wealth or even death to the daymaster of a chart or his/ her close family members:

1. 10-years-luck and annual luck fu-yin (identical pillars, 岁运并临):  This could mean death to DM or his relatives or relatives facing obstacles.  However, if the fu-yin elements are zheng-guan, zheng-yin or zheng-cai (+power, +resource, +wealth), misfortune may not happen.

2. Fan-yin or clashing any pillar in natal chart by luck pillar/s (天克地冲 ):

  • DM’s father or mother suffers or even dies when luck period clashing month or year pillar
  • Wife suffers misfortunes when clashing day branch
  • Children suffer misfortune when clashing hour pillar

3. Three-penalties are clashed (三刑受冲):  Penalties itself means danger.  It is even more dangerous when clashed.  Whichever palace is clashed implies the events and relatives represented by that palace may suffer misfortune or even death.

4. Two groups of 3-penalities (两组三刑)Natal chart, 10-years-luck and annual luck form two groups of penalties penalized each other.  This stands for major disaster and death is unavoidable.

5. Two formations battle each other (两局相克)Natal chart, 10-years-luck and annual luck form two formations battling each other.  For example, shen-zi-chen water formation battles si-wu-wei fire formation.  This stands for major disaster and death is unavoidable.

6. Three versus 1 (以三制一) Natal chart, 10-years-luck and annual luck form 3 branches clashing 1 branch, 3 branches penalizing 1 branch, 3 stems controlling one stem and 3 stems combing one stem– all these stand for major misfortune.

7. “Pian-yin snatching shi-shen” (枭神夺食, -resource snatches -output):  DM becomes weak or sick or death occurs in his family when luck periods bring “pian-yin snatching shi-shen“.

8. Meeting of shang-guan, yang-knife and void (伤、刃、空重叠):  Accident, misfortune water/fire disasters and death may occur, especially if DM is weak.

9. Qi-sha is clashed (七煞逢冲 ):  Pian-guan or -power with no resource (yin) in chart is called qi-sha.  Qi-sha is a vicious star attacking DM.  If qi-sha is unfavorable and is clashed with no cure/combination or Nobleman to help, DM is a ferocious person and likely died of violence.

10. Family members entombed (六亲入墓 ):  Tomb means tomb-storage and also grave.  “Jinx” below means disaster and misfortune occurred to the person being jinxed.

  • Male DM jinxes children and female jinxes husband when annual luck with power star (zheng-guan) entombed.
  • Male DM jinxes wife when annual luck with +wealth star (zheng-cai) entombed.
  • Both male and female DM jinx father when annual luck with -wealth star (pian-cai) entombed.
  • Both male and female DM jinx mother when annual luck with +resource star (zheng-yin) entombed.
  • Female jinxes children when annual luck with output star (shang-guan/ shi-shen) entombed.

11. Yang-knife accumulation (羊刃会聚):  Disasters and misfortunes come when luck period brings more yang-knives (+peer or jie-cai), especially if DM is strong.

12. Clashing yang-knife (羊刃倒戈):  Yang-knife dislikes clash or combination, especially being clashed by Grand Duke (annual luck).  This stands for major disasters and violent death.

Today is your lucky day because I will show you a quick and easy method to read overall lifetime luck trend with Bazi.luck_symbol

In Bazi or 4-pillars reading, each pillar represents diverse meanings as follow:

YEAR PILLAR REFLECTS:

  • Parental palace
  • Luck between age 1- 16 (teen)

MONTH PILLAR REFLECTS:

  • Sibling palace
  • Luck between age 17- 32 (adult)

DAY PILLAR REFLECTS:

  • Stem is the daymaster/ branch is spousal palace
  • Luck between age 33- 48 (middle age)

HOUR PILLAR REFLECTS:

  • Children palace
  • Luck between age 49- 60  (old age)

To find the luck trend of each of the above life period, you need to find or calculate the followings first:

  1. Favorable element (“yong-shen” or “useful god”)– element that “balances” the chart
  2. Supporting element (“xi-shen” or “happy god”)– element that supports or nurtures the favorable element
  3. Unfavorable element (“ji-shen” or “annoying god”)– element that controls the favorable element.
  4. Vengeful element  (“chou-shen” or “vengeance god”)– element that supports or nurtures the unfavorable element
  5. Trivial element (“xian-shen” or “trivial god”)– element that does not matter to the balance of the chart.

For example, if the favorable element of your chart is wood (supporting will be water), unfavorable is metal (vengeful element will be earth) and trivial element is fire.

Assuming you have a chart like this one (in terms of elements):

  • YEAR:  wood/ metal
  • MONTH:  fire/ fire
  • DAY:  metal/ wood
  • HOUR:  water/ earth

You figure out the overall luck by checking if there is any favorable or supporting element in each pillar.  For example, year pillar in the above chart has both a favorable and an unfavorable elements.  This indicates that this person was born in a pretty good or stable family and then had suffered declining family fortune in late teen.  Month pillar is occupied by trivial element fire.  This means nothing special or just “so-so” luck during the 17- 32 age period.  The best time probably is between age 33- 48 because favorable element wood is in the spouse palace.  This also indicates s/he may have a good or helpful spouse.  Hour pillar is occupied by a supporting element first and then a vengeful element.  This means above average luck in first half and then below average luck in second half during old age.  This person has both good and not so good children.

This method is a rough estimate of overall luck trend.  You still need to take into consideration of 10-years and annual luck to make more accurate predictions.  You can use the same method to evaluate luck periods too.

The first step of a Bazi reading is to determine if the client has a “strong” or “weak” daymaster (DM) by counting the supporting and non-supporting elements in the birth chart.  “Daymaster” is a term for describing the owner of a Bazi chart.

Unfortunately, the terms “strong DM” and “weak DM” seem to infuse value judgment to some clients.  They may think a “strong daymaster” is better than a “weak” one.

While there are some distinct personality and physical characteristics associated with strong and weak DM, they are by no means “better” or “worse” but “different“.

The ultimate yardstick to measure, regardless of DM strength (“weak” or “strong“), is if there are more favorable than unfavorable luck periods (10-years-luck) in a chart.  For example, the favorable elements of a strong metal person are non-supporting elements like fire, wood and water.  Unfavorable elements are supporting elements like metal and earth.

If this strong metal DM has mostly metal and earth luck periods, especially during his first few 10-year-luck periods, this DM will not have a good life.

On the other hand, if this is a weak metal DM, metal and earth are his favorable elements.  If his luck periods are mostly metal and earth luck, he will enjoy a good life despite being a weak DM.

Similar logic also apply to “chart quality“.  One can have the chart of a king but with mostly unfavorable luck periods– his life will not be better than a born humble person with favorable luck periods.  For examples, King Louis XVI was guillotined during the French Revolution and Tsar Nicholas II was assassinated in 1918.

Good luck periods are more important than a good birth chart” is the saying in Bazi.

Change luck” here means someone has less than average or low luck before marrying.  His/ her luck changes significantly after getting married.changeLuck

In general, people who have low or below average luck during their teen and early adult life have strong unfavorable elements in the year and month pillar of their Bazi charts.  This is because year and month pillar represent these age periods and also family background.

In addition, more than likely, their first two or three10-years-luck periods are mostly unfavorable too.

People who will get better luck after getting married IF their Bazi charts have the following features:

1.  Spouse star is favorable in the chart:  For male, the spouse star is wealth star (zheng-cai) and female is power star (zheng-guan).

2.  Spouse palace (day-branch) is favorable:  This means the element occupying spouse palace is favorable to the chart.

Of course, there are people with their luck changed for the better after marrying but does not have the above two features in their charts.  This is likely due to their 10-years-luck is favorable at time of marriage and is NOT attributed to the act of marrying.

Smart readers would figure out that the opposites of #1 and 2 in a chart mean worse (not better) luck after getting married!

poorPeople with “poor” profile Bazi charts usually work hard for money and live in challenging conditions.  If they run into accidental or unexpected wealth, they have problem keeping the wealth or even endangering their lives.  There are cases of poor people winning lottery and ended up poorer or even death.

Click the following link if you want to understand the Bazi/4P terminology used here as compared to yours:

http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/2011/05/4p-bazi-terminology-conventions.html

Below are Bazi characteristics of people who are poor (check the diagram at end of article for to figure out explanations) :

  1. Chart with few output stars (shi-shen/ shang-guan) and no wealth stars (zheng-cai/ pian-cai)
  2. Chart with few wealth stars (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) but too many +power stars (zheng-guan)
  3. Weak DM with with many +output stars (shang-guan) and shortage of resource stars (zheng-yin/ pian-yin) for DM support and control of output stars
  4. Weak DM with numerous wealth stars (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) with no peer stars (jie-cai/ bi-jian) to handle wealth
  5. Chart with few wealth stars (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) and no output stars (shi-shen/ shang-guan) to create wealth, but too many peer stars (jie-cai/ bi-jian) to snatch wealth
  6. Chart with too many wealth stars (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) and power stars (zheng-guan/ qi-sha)

If a chart with any one of the above conditions, DM is likely to have problems getting rich during his lifetime.

“Ken, my chart meets one of the conditions listed above.  What should I do?”

A chart usually has both good and bad luck periods.  You either seek the help of a Bazi reader or take my Bazi courses (especially “Destiny/Luck Mgmt. 2” and “Destiny/Luck Mgmt. 3 ” to determine your good luck period, earn as much as you could and save for rainy days.  With DLM2/ 3 courses, they help you to create opportunities instead of waiting for mercy.

80%+ of Bazi contents is embedded in this simple diagram.

In Bazi or 4-pillars, favorable elements (“useful gods“) are the elements that keep a chart in balance for standard charts and “special” for non-standard charts.  When the owner (daymaster or DM) of the chart runs into luck periods with these favorable elements, his luck will be good or at the least, nothing bad happen to him.

However, it is not unusual that someone runs into major disasters, illness or even death during his favorable element luck period/s.  Why?

This has to do with the concepts static vs. dynamic favorable elements.

APPROACHES TO EXTRACTING FAVORABLE ELEMENTS

Static Model

This is the most popular approach used in most basic Bazi books/ courses and Bazi software because it is easy to learn and program.  It is based on the data from a moment in time (the birthday/ hour) and calculates which elements are needed to balance the chart.  These elements are called favorable elements and supporting elements (“happy god“).  Then these favorable elements are used as benchmarks to determine if the future luck periods are good or bad for the DM.  This is simple and logical.  Isn’t it?  But it fails to take into consideration of the cumulative effects of luck period elements on chart balance.  This is a main reason that this model does not always make the right predictions.

Another reason is that if there is/ are interactions between natal chart and luck period.  For example, if fire is favorable according to this static model and you see a bing-fire luck period coming, you may predict good luck comes for this DM.  But if there is a xin-metal in the natal chart or another luck period,  this fire may be converted into water which is likely unfavorable.

Dynamic Model

If we use taking a photo analogy at a certain time (like time of birth) for static model, dynamic model would be taking multiple photos at different points of time  (luck periods) and drawing different conclusions on which elements are favorable or unfavorable for each photo or point of time..

This approach takes care of changing dynamics between 5-elements in a chart.  For example, if water is “favorable” at birth, when a 10-years-luck and annual luck are all water elements, water may become excessive and unfavorable!  This is one of the reasons why one may die during his favorable luck period defined by static model.

The more of a “good thing” may not be merrier in 5-elements theory.  It is like salt is good for your body, but too much salt will give you high blood pressure.  The “right amount” of a good thing needed to keep the Bazi chart in balance is the key.

There are different levels of “dynamic model”—  taking photos or calculations of birth chart with

  1. 10-years-luck only
  2. 10-years-luck and annual luck only
  3. 10-years-luck, annual luck and current month
  4. 10-years-luck, annual luck, current month and current day
  5. 10-years-luck, annual luck, current month, current day and current hour

But most people would do to 10YL and annual luck level only unless DM is in serious trouble or illness.  It will be too much calculations even for Bazi software.

Note:  Below are some questions from “4P Bootcamp” discussion group.

Is the age in which the luck pillar changes Chinese age or western age?

It is based on solar calendar.  To calculate the first 10-years-luck (10YL), yang male/ yin female (based on birth year) count the number of days and hour from birthday/hour to next solar terms (3 days= 1yr, 1 Chinese hour= 10 days).  Yin male and yang female count the number of days and hour from birthday/hour BACKWARD to previous solar terms.  For detail calculation, consult your basic Bazi textbooks.

Some say Chinese and others say western (age). That can make a significant difference sometimes.

It is always presented using the stem of the first year of one’s10YL.  For example, my 10YL starts at every jia-year…..  This confusion is due to the way traditional Chinese method of counting age is different from westerners.  Chinese baby is already one year old when s/he is born.  Hence in some Chinese Bazi software, the year daymaster (DM) clashing Grand Duke is 12x+ 1 whereas Bazi software written by westerners is 12x.  Chinese way of counting the age of a dead person is even more bizarre– the dead guy gets 3 bonus years– one year each from heaven, earth and himself.  So if a person is dead at 68, his reported age of death would be 71 by the funeral home.

In the year of change, if it happens to be in the middle of the year, do the old/new pillar switch off/on or there’s a mixing of energy for the whole year?

You separate the year, so you may have half a year in the old 10YL and another half in new 10YL.

When 10YL switches, good or bad things are likely to happen, especially if the switch is from one region to another or “changing corner luck” (from hot to dry, for example, from wei to shen (fire to metal region)– if the new region is favorable (great!), if unfavorable (pray or take my “Destiny and Luck” course)

Events are more likely to happen in the beginning or end of a 10YL.  There is a saying about 10YL, “男怕交运,女怕脱运. Male is afraid of changing 10YL.  Female is afraid of the end of a 10YL.”

How soon will the new luck pillar be felt before the actual change takes place especially corner luck?

This is hard to say, but it is pretty common to see someone suddenly dies/suffers major mishaps or become filthy rich/ famous overnight when the annual luck or 10YL switches.   10YL is the “big environment“.  Annual luck is the trigger.  Activation depends on, I guess, the differentials in strength between favorable/unfavorable elements.  If there is an overwhelming imbalance and/or 3+ branches got clashed, events may happen faster.

Checking the year of luck period switching is one way of looking for “actions” or possible fortune/ misfortune event that may happen.

fu_yin_pixIn Bazi and Feng Shui,  Fu-yin means “identical” or “duplicate”.  For example, if a Bazi chart has two identical pillars or just two identical stems or branches, that pillar or element is called “fu-yin“.

Depending on the contexts, Fu-yin has multiple meanings.  There are Fu-yin meanings or implications in terms of pillars, stems, branches, illness, family members, 10 transformation stars (“10 gods“) and luck periods.

In this post, we just cover the Fu-yin meanings of luck periods.  This includes annual luck and 10-year-luck periods.

WHEN LUCK PERIOD FU-YIN (is identical to) 

  1. Hour pillar:  traveling, long trips, pregnant, giving birth
  2. Resource star (zheng-yin/ pian-yin):  changing residence, job relocation
  3. Wealth star (zheng-cai/ pian-cai):  losing/ gaining wealth, wealth-related events, relationship matters, loan given out
  4. Day-branch:  one person becomes two (marrying, dating); two persons become one (separation, partner has long trips) 
  5. Relative stars (e.g., output, power, wealth..etc):  relative getting sick, injury, disaster or death.
  6. Favorable element (“yong-shen/ useful god”): doubles the joy/happiness
  7. Unfavorable element (“ji-shen/ annoying god”): doubles the misfortune, sadness, sickness

Besides doubling the effect, Fu-yin also means repetition, reality does not match expectation or planning, or success slips away in the last minute.  This is especially accurate with day-branch.

Fu-yin” does not always mean negative as long as the element “duplicated” is favorable or at least not negative.

BONUS:  FU-YIN BETWEEN NATAL CHART PILLARS

Today is your lucky day because I am in a good mood.  I throw in the following bonus info:

  • Year/ hour pillar fu-yin (i.e.: identical stems and branches)DM did not meet older relatives when born or jinxed them when DM was young;  DM jinxes his descendants at old age or lacks relationship with them 
  • Month/ day pillar fu-yin :   DM has unstable marriage, jinxing close relatives, emotional/ psychologically unstable, family disharmony 
  • Month/ hour pillar fu-yin :  numerous ups and down in career, obstacles and stagnation 
  • Day/ hour pillar fu-yin :  alone/ lonely during old age (descendants do not stay close to DM), unstable marriage/ romance

At the beginning of this year, I had sent a note warning my neighbor Billy, a 40+ years old programmer, about two most dangerous months and days to him for the year of Rooster.  His chart has hit the Bazi lottery configurations of “zi-wu-mao-you“– the most powerful clashes that people dread.

Zi, wu, mao, and you are the purest earth branches and also called the 4-cardinal branches.  These four energies clashes are like 4 cars driving towards each other head-on at high speed. Hence their energies are concentrated and powerful.  They are also called “peach-blossom” elements associated with romance and affairs.

When a chart has any two of these elements, it is not uncommon that 10-year luck and annual luck may bring in the other two missing elements to hit the zi-wu-mao-you negative lottery.  It could be accident, negative romance/ affair that may cause major wealth losses or even death or major sickness.

Other Bazi negative lottery configurations could be formed due to luck periods are:

1.  3-penalties like yin-si-shen/ chou-xu-wei

2.  Formation clashing formation like:

–hai-zi-chou vs. si-wu-wei or yin-wu-xu 
–shen-zi-chen vs. si-wu-wei or yin-wu-xu 
–yin-mao-chen vs. shen-you-xu or si-you-chou
–hai-mao-wei vs. shen-you-xu or si-you-chou
–si-wu-wei vs. shen-you-xu or si-you-chou
–yin-wu-xu vs. shen-you-xu or si-you-chou

3.  Three identical branches clashing one branch

I ran into my neighbor Billy while checking mailbox today.  “I’m glad to see you are still alive“.  I said.

Am I out of the wood yet?”  Billy asked.

Not yet, just the most dangerous periods are gone.  You still have to be cautious till the end of this year of rooster.”  I replied.

What else can I do?” Asked Billy.

Mow my lawn once a week and you will be safe“.  I said.

Do I look like stupid?”  Billy said.

Billy always helps families in the neighborhood remove heavy snow after snowstorm.  This is why I had sent him the warning note– to make sure he stays alive (and removes heavy snow from my driveway when snowstorm hits).
