Previous post derives self-penalties by matching branch 3-unities (San-he) to 3-meetings (San-hui).  This post uses branch groups to locate self-penalties.

Classic Bazi segregates 12 branch elements into 3 groups:

4 cardinal or peach-blossom elements

—  zi, wu, mao and you

4 sub-cardinal or traveling horses elements

—  yin, shen, si and hai

4 storage or tomb elements 

—  chen, xu, chou and wei 

From the above, we have 3-penalties

  1. zi-mao penalty
  2. yin-shen-si 3-penalties
  3. xu-chou-wei 3-penalties

The branch elements that are missing in these 3-penalties actions become self-penalty when running into identical element.  

Self-Penalties:

  • Chen-chen
  • You-you
  • Wu-wu
  • Hai-hai

Don’t overlook the destructive power and influence of self-penalty.  It could be as serious as other penalties.  Out of the 4 self-penalties, wu, you and hai self-penalties are most serious because:

  • Wu-fire is the yang-knife (羊刃) of bing-fire
  • You-metal  is the yang-knife of geng-metal
  • Hai-water is the yang-knife of gui-water 

 Self-penalty becomes serious matter when the corresponding stem showing up in the stem level, especially if the stem is also the daymaster (DM).

Self-penalty could mean:

  • self-inflicted pain/ injurydepression
  • self-sabotage
  • addiction
  • depression
  • worrisome
  • meddlesome
  • petty
  • cannot let go of trivial matters

If the self-penalty element is also the yang-knife of the DM,  s/he may have health problems (self-inflicted, psychosomatic or psychological), suicidal due to depression, love-sickness depression and the likes.

Self-penalty is also one of the causes of depression.

If you have one or more of the following characteristics in your Bazi chart, you could become a psychic, medium, metaphysics person and the likes easily.psychic2

Bazi charts with:

  1. Zheng-yin/ pian-yin (resource stars):  People with resource stars in both stem and branch level are likely to have psychic ability, studying and practicing religions/ metaphysics related careers.
  2. Mao-you clash:  People with this clash in their chart has strong intuition and sixth sense. My own “psychic antenna” suddenly turns on when I have a mao-you clash luck period.
  3. 4-cardinal elements: zi, wu, mao and you is the 4-cardinal elements with relatively pure and strong water, fire, wood and metal energies.  These elements also represent north, south, east and west 4-cardinal directions. They are also the 4-peach-blossom elements.  Hence it is not uncommon to hear sex scandals in these circles.
  4. Strong shi-shen/ shang-guan (output stars): Output stars represents intellect and intuition.  People with strong output stars are sensitive to different frequencies of energies.
  5. Strong pian-yin (-resource):  Resource stars stand for reception of signals from the universe and knowledge.  Zheng-yin (+resource) stands for main-stream signals and religions.  Pian-yin (-resource) stands for non-traditional signal and religions.
  6. Jia-wood and ding-fire in stem level:  Jia-wood is the first element of the 10-stems.  Ding-fire stands of starry light.  When ding-fire meets Jia-wood in a chart, it will brightly lit up Jia-wood for a long time.
  7. Gui-water daymaster (DM):  Gui-water is the yin-est element of the 10-stems.  Yin element is associated with supernatural ghostly/ psychic events.  Gui-water DM usually is soft-spoken, passive and sensitive to yin elements and supernatural phenomena.
  8. Yin-day and yin-hour birthday:  These are people who were born in yin days/ hours.  Yin days/ hours are days/ hours with yi, ding, ji, xin, and gui stems and chou, mao, si, wei, you and hai branches. People born in yin day/hour can easily attain psychic ability.  If all the 4 pillars in a chart are yin, this DM could be a spokesperson for deity or spirit.
  9. Huá gài shen-sha (Loner-talent 华盖) : Hua-gai is the symbolic star for someone interested in metaphysics and religions.  People with this star are usually religious, intelligent but non-sociable.  Most metaphysics students, including myself, have this star in their charts.   Check below to see if you have this star:psychic1
  • If your day-branch is:  shen, zi or chen, your hua gai is chen
  • If your day-branch is:  hai, mao or wei, your hua gai is wei
  • If your day-branch is:  si, you or chou, your hua gai is chou
  • If your day-branch is: yin, wu or xu, your hua gai is xu
  1. Tai-ji Nobleman shen-sha (太极贵人) This star stands for interest in mysterious and divine knowledge.  You have this star:
  • if your day-stem is Jia- or Yi-wood with BOTH zi and wu
  • if your day-stem is Bing- or Ding-fire with BOTH mao and you 
  • if your day-stem is Wu-earth with BOTH chen and xu 
  • if your day-stem is Ji-earth with BOTH chou and wei 
  • if your day-stem is Geng- or Xin-metal with BOTH yin and mao
  • if your day-stem is Ren- or Gui-water with BOTH si and shen 

You should take my Chinese metaphysics courses below if you have one or more of the characteristics listed above. You don’t want to waste your metaphysics talent.

Below are the Bazi characteristics of alcohol drinkers:wine

1. Chart with severe shortage of water element OR with strong water and water is also the favorable element (“useful god”).

2. Chart with you- and/or xin-metal.  The Chinese character you (酉 ) is half the character of wine (酒).  The “酉” character by itself also looks like a wine pot.

3. Chart with you- and hai or zi-water.  The Chinese character you (酉 ) is half the character of of wine (酒) without the water prefix.  Hai and zi-water adds the water prefix to the word “酉” and become Chinese wine (酒) character.  People with you and hai/ zi in their chart are likely alcohol drinkers.

wine_chn

4. Chart with strong pian-cai (-wealth) and output stars (shi-shen/ shang-guan) :  Pian-cai stands for lust and output stars eating and drinking.

5. Chart with numerous water, metal, pian-cai and peach-blossom elements (zi, wu, mao, you) is likely to drink in places with many women like nightclubs and dancing halls. People with strong water and metal in their charts are usually sexually active.

Most single women probably want to ask this question: “Will I get a good husband?”  Look no further.  Your own Bazi natal chart may have the answer.goodHubby

Below are 5 Bazi scenarios that a woman may get a good husband:

1.  Power stars (zheng-guan/ qi-sha) are favorable elements in natal chart

Power stars stand for husband for a female chart.  Favorable element represents good support for the daymaster (DM) or woman here.  Power star is favorable element in a female chart means this DM will have a good husband.

2.  The element sitting in day branch or spouse palace is favorable

Some charts may not have power star.  In this case we check the element sitting inside spouse palace (day branch) to see if it is favorable or not.  If favorable, it means the potential husband will be nice and helpful to the DM.

3.  Power star combines with daymaster

This means husband gets along well with DM.  Even better if power star is also the favorable element and there is no “jealous combination” in the chart (i.e., no woman steal the good man).  In this scenario, this husband will love DM very much.

4.  Spouse palace is occupied by one of the 4 peach-blossom elements– zi, wu, mao or you. 

This husband will be handsome, sociable or knows how to please people.  However, this element must be favorable element to the chart to be positive to the DM.

5.  Wealth element sits in spouse palace

We all need wealth to survive.  Wealth stands for wife for man and also love for both sexes.  To check if the future husband has wealth (or capable of making wealth) or not, check DM’s spouse palace to see if it is occupied by a wealth element.  If wealth star sits there and is also the favorable element, DM’s husband is capable of making money and hopefully becoming rich (need to check the man’s chart too).

If you think logically, the scenarios above with minor modifications will be for a man in search of a good wife– simply change “power star” to “wealth star“.  Another ROGO (read-one-get-one) free article here!

Today is your lucky day!  This is another ROGO (read-one-get-one free) article.

If your partner or spouse cheats on you, but for whatever reasons (like the person is the only meal ticket, trophy wife,….)  you still want to keep her/ him,  this is probably what you can do to get rid of the “third party” without shooting at each other.

In Chinese metaphysics, affairs and romance are grouped under “peach blossom“.  Each person has a peach blossom star or location in his/ her house.

Peach blossom” is a delicate flower that could be easily suppressed or crashed. By doing something on the person’s peach blossom location, you may terminate or enhance his/ her romance-related activities.

HOW TO TERMINATE AFFAIR OF CHEATING PARTNER

To get rid of your spouse’s mistress or lover,  follow these 3 steps:

1.  Find out the Chinese zodiac animal sign of your spouse.  Read the following article if you have no clue about Chinese zodiac animal:

http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/2017/08/wealth-locations-and-directions-of-12.html

2.  Find the peach blossom location of your spouse:

  •  WEST: for people with monkey, rat or dragon animal sign
  •  NORTH: for people with pig, rabbit or ram animal sign
  •  SOUTH: for people with snake, rooster or ox animal sign 
  •  EAST: for people with tiger, horse or dog animal sign

3.  Put a cactus or thorny plant in that location.

This will also work if you are single and want to get rid of a current negative romance or unwelcome admirer by putting a thorny plant in your own peach-blossom location.  Make sure you remove the plant if you want to be on the romance market again.

Precaution:  If your peach blossom location is identical to your spouse or partner, putting a thorny plant there will also affect your relationship with the spouse!  For solution, you need to consult a Feng Shui or Bazi reader or take the following courses:

ROMANCE ENHANCER

Instead of putting thorny plant in your peach-blossom location, you put fresh flowers there will enhance your romance luck.  Make sure replacing dead flowers or you will get negative 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).

How do you check if your spouse is prone to be “snatchedspouseSnatch away by another person or a “cheating heart”?

Below is a list of Bazi or 4-pillars conditions in a chart that will have love competitions or “spouse-snatcher” showing up:

Male chart with numerous peer stars (bi-jian/ jie-cai) Zheng-cai (+wealth) star stands for wife and pian-cai (-wealth) mistress for man.  Peer stars are the competitions that want to snatch your love.  This is especially valid for man DM with yang stems like jia, bing, wu, geng and ren.  If natal chart and/or luck period comes another +peer (bi-jian),  someone is preying on your wife or lover.  For example, ren-water male DM has another ren in his natal chart and/or another ren coming from luck period. 

Female chart with numerous output stars (shang-guan/ shi-shen) Shang-guan (+ouput) and shi-shen (-output) stars attracts opposite sex but also the cause of losing one’s love.  This is especially valid if +output is in the month-branch or day-branch.   It means her spouse may find another competition for you

Female DM with yin stem like yi, ding, ji, xin and gui — if her natal chart and/or luck period comes another -peer (bi-jian),  someone is preying on your husband or lover.  For example, ding-fire female DM has another ding-fire in her natal chart and/or another ding coming from luck period.

When luck period clashes or combines with one’s spouse palace (day-branch)           — assuming you have already married or with a steady partner, when this happens, there will be turbulence in your relationship.  This is especially likely when bi-jian or peach-blossom star (zi, wu, mao, or you) clashes or combines with spouse palace.

When the wealth star of a male chart combines with luck period — this is the signal of another woman coming into the system.  Wealth star stands for wife and mistress for man.

When the power star of a female chart combines with luck period — this is the signal of another man coming into the system.  Power star stands for husband and lover for woman.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

Whether your spouse or partner is guilty of cheating or not, is not always clearcut.  It could be the “script” or fate already written in your natal Bazi chart.  The best strategy is to read the natal charts of yourself and your potential partner before going “steady”.  If it is too late to do that, read the chart for the most dangerous years and avoid or keep an eye on opposite sex interactions during the period.  There are some possible preventive remedies shown in my “Destiny and Luck management” courses (see below for details).
