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.

Below are some secret Bazi laws that masters use to do quick reading:

Chart with numerous (3+)

  1. +wealth (zheng-cai):  Daymaster (DM) is likely stupid
  2. -wealth (pian-cai):  DM likely works too much
  3. +power (zheng-guan):  DM is likely a lower class member/ depressed 
  4. -power (qi-sha):  DM is likely to die prematurely
  5. +resource (zheng-yin):  DM is likely alone/ solitary
  6. -resource (pian-yin):  DM is likely a vicious person
  7. +output (shang-guan):  DM is likely a disaster/ arrogant
  8. -output (shi-shen):  DM worries too much/ likes eating
  9. +peer (bi-jian):  DM is likely a failure/ fantasizes too much
  10. Yang-knives (+peer):  DM likely has disability
  11. Lu (-peer):  DM likely lives in poverty
  12. Traveling Horses (yin/shen/si/hai):  DM travels a lot/ mobile, can’t sit still
  13. clashes:  instability and insecurity for DM
  14. combinations:  DM is enthusiastic and sociable
  15. more yang than yin pillars:  DM is open and honest
  16. more yin than yang pillars:  DM is not open and suspicious of others
  17. tomb-storages (chen/xu/chou/wei): DM is likely jinxing close relatives

Chart with NO:

  • wealth star:  DM is “not real” (everyone needs wealth to survive)
  • power star:  DM has less pressure
  • resource star:  DM has shortage of blessing

Of course, you also need to read other parts of a chart before you giving out comments based on above laws.  There are always exceptions such as special profile charts which may give totally opposite meanings.

As you can see, a tiny paragraph written in  Chinese takes almost one page to translate in brief.  It would have taken another 2 pages if I explain what these mean in details.    

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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.
