A New BING Is Born

One of the most frequent contributor to this blog has finally been addicted to the world of blogging and decided to graduated from the cocoon of YI Bazi to his own and lets give a warm welcome to BaZi blogger Mr. Lwee Wan Sim of

Over in YI Bazi, I may have lost a frequent contributor, but rest assure he will be popping in from times to times to do what he does best, commentaries in the method of BaZi readings. We often find bucket loads of gold nuggets from his commentary especially of methodology of the Art of deciphering BaZi.
I must admit that he came from both the imagery school and technical ZiPing method. If one finds his unreserved manner of technical readings to be both profound and interesting, till he tells you about imagery readings. One will never be bored by his straight forwardness.

Being in a teaching professions, I was told he has seamlessly shared his passion in this art almost double up his classes as a metaphysics classes as well, part time. His exposures to many students has been a great source of learning experiences to him as he is known to know his student by person and not just a student. I knew, because I was his student before about a dacade ago, in mathematics. So, I suggested to him to put up more charts pertaining to how to identify a student leader or someone who can lead, how to identify straight A students and most important of all how to identify a genius! Then it will be a good tapestry among YI Bazi, Bazi Diary, Shi Xiang and now, BING Bazi.

A link will be provided in this blog and I have just confirmed with him, he is currently finding his ways to work around Blogger's Templete and in due time, another BING will shine brightly on the bloggersphere of BaZi.

A Case Of A Childless Couple

There has been many questions related to wealth, health and career. Lwee has been instrumental in providing cases relating to health. Currently I was reading a case about childless couple that I wish to share. Attached is his request:-


My wife and I are childless, due to two miscarriages. Are we fated not to have a child? Even adopting (illegal way) many years ago met with obstacles ie. the authorities were clamping down on the activity. We, especially me, occasionally get depressed of the current (childless) state we are in.

Born Yi wood at the end of autumn season. Not supported by Earth and neither is supported by Heaven. Technically speaking, this is a true follower chart, favoring fire and earth. Most fear of resource, water and self, wood. Authority could have been favorable, but because there is another output that will eventually keep his authority at bay, unless wealth is there to arbitrate, but is not seen. Heavenly clash of Bing and Ding and earthly harm in Xu and You among the self, parents, ancestor and children palace summarized part of the reasons of being childless and emotional stress that reach beyond the couple and also the immediate family.

Investigating the children star, for a Yi male, authority star among others represents children. Noted that the Heavenly clash of Bing and Geng. Another clash of Bing and Geng occurred making it a three tier whammy. These are seen. The unseen revealed harm into the marital palace making childlessness an issue between the couples with their family especially the mother. Xu and You harm usually denotes physical or bodily harm, because it is unseen, there are implications that in the anxiety of getting a child, intake of food or practices, through a slow process may have affected the miscarriage.

As this is shown in the natal chart, it is a difficult to break the spell, although he may try again in the GengYin luck and XinMao luck, although he must be wary that it is another FuYin for both luck pillars affecting the children star and self. As to why a preference is given to a metal stem, is that the authority star is revealing. Unfortunately, there are again, obstacles – FuYin.

FuYin, is known as crying event. Liked BaZi Diary experienced from his wife’s chart revealing through his blog, “…There was a FuYin in my wife’s chart – but I didn’t expect that it would mean losing a dear friend…” the gravity could sometime be heavy. So, stepping into his shoe, I would not take the risk although through some FengShui help, the crying event would actually mean he would finally have his own child!

Because metal to him is not favorable, no point taking the risk.


What would one suggest to make this person to have his own child or is this the end of the road?

PostScript: A harm in the home conditions, for a FengShui master's concerns and perspective also indicate a foregoing FengShui problem affecting the household. Most likely in the SanHe view, it indicates that the water is exiting at Conception (Tai) palace.

A Fake Follower That Refuse To Follow?

In one of the commentary to the tread, MYL has requested for a reading of a female chart that is seen as a fake follower chart as the followings: -

“… Please kindly confirm that my diagnosis of the following chart as fake follower is correct?
Year: Gui Mao
Month: Ding Si
Day: Gui Chou
Hour: Yi Mao
I understand that the favourable elements become Fire and Wood?...”

Technically speaking, Gui self born in Si month, not in season. Not supported by the branches neither are the stems with a small exception of Gui, at the year pillar. Because Gui is not rooted at all, it can be construed as a fake follower chart, following summer season which is wealth. So her favourable elements are fire, earth and wood. All the presumably negative stars become positive. Here we shall match her life path to determine does a fake follower really follow.

[MYL Quote]: I did ask her to give me a bit more insight of her life. I have also known her for some years now and she has generously let me practice on her chart while I am struggling to make sense of what I had read on BaZi! She told me that she was born overseas (country 1) and spent her earlier years there. The family move back to the parent homeland (country 2) when she was about 7 or 8 where she started to learn new language and new custom at new environment. But she does not think that it is stressful to her, she said may be it is stressful for her parent but since she is too young to know any better, she does not think that it is a bad period for her. The family was not rich but she was well provided for within reason.

[DY Response]: Rendering her coming of luck to be WuWu, the revealed earth is generally favourable to her. There is a harm at her palace of home conditions which affecting her authority, here generally means she needs to learn a new custom and a new language. The classics note that this is called the temperamental harm, among others signify the lack of patient and small anxiety. But she may be too young to recognise as something serious.

[MYL Quote]: At the final year of Ji Wei period (1990) she obtained foreign country scholarship (country 3) where she met her husband, married and settle down there now. She had some hard time to obtain employment during the early year after she had moved to the new country but she got something eventually and so during her Geng Shen and Xin You periods, she thinks she had an average luck as well. So it seems her life has been quite comfortable since childhood until now.

[DY Response]: JiWei solid earth pillar, authority revealed and rooted, she got married. That is natural. However, when the solid metal luck comes in as her resource star, will that be still comfortable for a weak follower chart that disliked to be strengthened? Here, the fake follower does not want to follow?

One perspective states that the season of summer weakened the negative resource of her luck pillar, providing yet another line of defence. That is where it is just another mixed luck, average.

Another perspective states that when the resource revealed, if it is a real follower chart, the effects will be detrimental as the structure will be broken. However for a fake follower, it will be read as a weak chart. So the fake follower cannot follow and the self find itself surrounded by negative stars.

[MYL Quote]: Luck started to turn in 2006 during her mid Xin You Period, her father fell and broken a leg, an arm and pelvic and while waiting at hospital for operation suffered a stroke which paralysed the other leg. She herself had a health scare during this period, which makes her to let go of her employment. She had been given a clean bill of heart now but her father just had another operation last July and she is wondering whether there is a light at the end of the tunnel as she is about to enter her Ren Xu and Gui Hai cycles.

[DY Response]: Did not have a chance to look at the starting and ending year for her luck pillar but from a reverse engineering, 2006 BingXu and subsequent, these movements of the earthly branches make a health scare out of her and metal luck is not consider to be favourable either. Generally the challenging time ahead should have been the metal and water lucks. Since she survived the metal luck period which is by degree is much detrimental then the water luck and at these age, health will generally be an issue. One will have to narrow in to take care of the particular years with her negative stars revealing particularly water and metal with clashes and combinations that may combine away or clashes away her useful gods.

Perhaps this might help.

A Family Chart With Disciplinary Problem

Seldom do we discuss the BaZi of the entire family. So, I took the liberty to put forth a family chart for discussion. Qian represents the father, Kun the mother, Xun the elder daughter and Li the youngest daughter of the family of four, living in Europe. Let just not complicate matters, how would a FengShui master goes about it putting the tapestry of these charts into a collective whole?

Among others, the predicaments of this family are as the followings: -

Qian’s career is static, it is difficult for him to achieve his goals as an electronic engineers. In fact, he is a bit fed up by electronics and would like to go back to his real interest: mathematics.

Qian and Kun have a very bad relationship with their eldest daughter who is 15 this year and impossible to manage, giving eventually way to bouts of violence against her father, and breaking things in her bedroom where she locks in when in wrath.

The assumptions are Hour of birth for the Kun is unknown as she has difficult family history with unknown parentage and some violence.

Qian, technically a fake follower undergoing JiaShen or YiYou luck, risked of being just a weak chart instead. Daughter palace indicates elemental producing in, so it is auspicious. In the context of a fake follower chart following wealth, then wealth which is auspicious and thus, weakened. Then, why would there be bouts of violence from his daughter instead? Is she not her biological daughter? So, my take it cannot be a follower chart but just a weak chart. There is where the father spoilt her daughter by over providing her. Again, this is another problem with a lousy officer star.

Career palace of Qian revealed an elemental clash between his resource and output. That is where he is not feeling that his goal has been achieved. With the authority with no root, things may be a little difficult for him. So, as a note, he has authority issue which not keep tab may ended up with legal matters.

Kun, technically a weak chart, with the correct element at the correct daughter palace, things should not have been difficult for her. So, the hour pillar may have been wrong. In terms of disciplining her daughter, without resource, authority for her is unfavourable and beside, authority does not revealed at all.

However, another school of thought provided that the self is a stubborn fire pillar supported by wood season and strengthened by another fire at the side. So this could well be a strong chart. She too has a lousy authority star to start with.

Xun, technically a strong chart as there is a fire frame supported by season and lure. With the absent of the father’s star, she may not have the affinity with her biological father and could that be the case? If not then the father only acts as a material provider for her. A palace elemental revealed that a producing out into her authority star which is revealed and yet weakened by the resource which happened to be the mother, then her authority star is indeed a lousy one. It all boils down to disciplinary matter and the sources are her parents. Over provisions can some times be a harming factor.

So, if one is auditing the FengShui of the house, from the readings of the charts, one could zoom into the officer issues either there could be mismatched in water flowing out of the officer palace or there is a ShaQi located at the officer’s location. That will be the tale for another day.

For a friend who has asked the question as to how do we read the BaZi chart in correspond to a FengShui audit, this is an example. Ultimately, I honestly could not understand that there are respond to say BaZi is not require in the art of FengShui. Perhaps I am a little dull to see beyond that.

Breast Cancer

This is the chart of a 50 years old lady who was diagnosed with cancer of the breast in this ji-chou year.

She has undergone an opeartion and is being treated with chemotherapy. Can you see the image of an operation from the chart?

She entered into her present geng-chen LP in 2003.

This is a strong geng DM. So, the negative stars are the fire, earth and metal stars. As you can see, the earth and metal stars are strongly rooted and the end product is a very strong presence of metal stars in the chart.

What happens when she moves into the geng-chen LP?

Obviously, the chart will be overload with metal stars as chen-you combines and transforms into metals stars with geng protruding. The strongly rooted earth stars from this ji-chou year is the final blow.

Can you see the consistencies in the charts of people who have serious health issues?

Therein lies the POWER of BAZI. There are so much more.......

Let us pray and hope that she too will recover.

Cancer Of The Nostrils

This is the chart of a good friend of mine whom I knew since the schooling days. He is now 47 years of age. He was diagnosed of having cancer of the nostrils in early 2006, which was still technically yi-you year then. He entered the negative ren-zi LP since 2001.

This chart is similar to the previous eyes problem case in many ways.

We shall again begin our analysis from the strength of the DM.

1st criteria : strong - wei is summer season since ding is in the stem (month stem).
2nd criteria : weak - yin against chen and chou.
3rd criteria : strong - jia and ding (month stem) against ren.
Note that ding-ren does not transform because it is not supported by the summer season.

Overall : 2 strong against 1 weak makes him a strong ding DM.

Just like the previous chart, the chou-wei earth clash will release all the negative stars of water, wood and fire when activated since these 3 negative stars are protruding in the stems. Again, water stars strengthen the wood stars and the wood stars strengthen the fire stars which also take roots in the wei month branch. So, this chart is also overload with the end product of the negative fire stars which causes this chart to be off balance.

As for timing, you should be able to tell why ren-zi LP is bad compared to the previous xin-hai LP and all his earlier LPs. Perhaps, the 2 dings in the middle of the chart give the image of the nostrils.

I really pray and hope that he will recover soon. He has 5 children and the eldest is only 16 years old. I remember one wise man said before: "Health is the greatest Wealth; Contentment is the greatest Happiness".

A case of a very bad eyesight problem

This is the chart of a 17 years old boy who is already blind in one eye and almost blind in the other due to very high power. Normally, serious health issues can be seen in charts that are very ill balance due to the presence of a very strong negative star.

Let us analyse beginning from the strength of the DM.
1st criteria : strong - the chen month is a wood month because jia wood is protruding.
2nd criteria : weak - wu against xu and you.
3rd criteria : strong - jia and bing (month stem) against gui.
Overall : 2 strong against 1 weak. Therefore, this is a strong bing DM.

This chart is unfortunate because there is a xu-chen clash which will release all the protruding negative stars when activated. Water stars will strengthen the wood stars and the wood stars will ultimately strengthen the fire stars. So, this chart is out of balance due to the strong presence of the fire stars which are also rooted in the fire horse.

The heart, eyes and blood are the fire parts of our body.Can you see why it's the eyes from the chart?

Some people think that earth clashes will always bring about health problems. This is not true. If the clashes release positive stars that are protruding in the stems, then it can actually be favourable.

Good health to all, Lwee.

PostScript: Lwee has brought up a novel idea in the interpretation of the strenght of this chart. We are being taught all this while that Yin Mao and Chen were the three seasonal frames representing Spring seasons. The Taiwanese method further described that in the first 9 days, Chen is dominated by Yi, for the subsequent 3 days, Chen is dominated by Gui and only for the last remaining 18 days, Chen becomes a truly earth star. Counting backward, it could have been the days when Chen is dominated by Gui, therefore may be read as not in season. Although Lwee and myself do not subsribed to this method of postulations, however, it could be a worthwile topic for discussions.

Another Fake Follower ?

It was quite strange that when I started, I met whose blog has been dedicated towards applying the art of BaZi to his daily appetites. Then it was an appetizer that has sparked many interesting ideas to come. Especially associating with a Ren personality with many ideas that can potentially be monetized, as he said. Then it came ShiXiang from that made the entrée with deliciously translated BaZi literatures from various sources to the otherwise English speaking communities that solely depended on books by currently 2 most prolific writers whose work only acts liked a teaser to the highly priced live courses to come. Hats off to him as he is assembling the entire rule base of BaZi from various schools and non biased compared to myself, although the adverts on his blog is some times, quite annoying. As for, it will be another platform to spur discussion making it as dissert. Almost liked a salad bowl that makes the three comes together. Liked I always say, the SanYuan began with the three. So, with this blog, I received many queries ranging from reading a chart to identifying a structure especially pertaining to identifying the strength of the Self or the day master. Similarly to the fake follower chart of Miss Blue River, another lady by a pseudonym of CWC has the following request to make,

"... I have been following your blog with much interest. Since I am intrigued by Bazi and have been reading on the subject, your sister blog YiBazi came on timely and with much information too especially on determining the strength of the DM. I am a self-taught Bazi enthusiast and so far knew only that season determines the strength of DM as was given to understand in the books I read! Hence what I learnt from your blog actually overturns what I knew and which means I am not too sure about my own DM now. Could you enlighten me on the strength of my own DM and my favourable and unfavourable elements?
I am a female with this BaZI elements:

Year : Ding Hai
Month: Ji You
Day: Ji You
Hour: Ren Shen

Now, I interpret myself to be very weak, even perhaps a fake follower chart....

1. Not supported by the Season
2. No root in the branches
3. Only a resource Ding in the Stem of Year Pillar.

Thanking you in anticipation. Also thank you for sharing your knowledge so freely with people like me who is interested in Bazi but couldn’t afford the hefty fees to attend the classes offered…”

To start the ball rolling, my take is this is not a follower chart. It is just another weak chart. If recalled, ShiXiang did mention the followings: -

In determining the strength of the day master, The Three Main Rules are

1. The Season

2. The Ground

3. The Heaven

Here, Ji earth born in You month where metal is strong and water is prosperous, earth is however, weakened. Therefore, Ji self is not born in season. Second, one do not view on ground as just as just root. When there is no other earthly branch that support the self liked fire or earth (root) one can conclude it is not supported by Ground. Thirdly, the heaven. Here it is a little complicated as Ren and Ding may combine and transformed into wood. The question is will this transformation take place? Here, again ShiXiang has written a good piece of guideline as it states,


The eight month of rooster, Ren Ding does not transform.

When this transformation does not take place, it will render the chart as a weak chart. One has a self element and resource to break, even a fake, follower chart structure.

Therefore, in reading a weak chart, its favourable elements are earth, fire and in this case, even wood. Again, why is there a tendency to combine Ding and Ren when they are so far apart? Perhaps ShiXiang can write a piece of work on this.

Chart of Tiger Woods

This is the chart of one of the most successful golfer in the world. Of course, this chart belongs to the one and the only Tiger Woods. He is a weak geng DM and he has his positive resource, officer and wealth stars all protruding in the stems. On top of that, his useful god, the earth stars are strongly rooted. His wealth stars, which are the wood stars are also rooted.What a fantastic chart!


PostScript: Just in case, one don't know who this personality is, attached herewith is his write ups from Astro-DataBank.

American golfer who is perhaps the best young golfer in history. On April 13, 1997 he catapulted to fame when he gave a record-setting performance the likes of which golf had never seen. With a record-setting score of 270, he became the youngest winner and the first person of mixed race in the 61-year history of the Masters to achieve such glory. He followed his victory with several more. In 1999, he won the World Cup for both individual and team performance. With his eight-stroke victory at the British Open, Woods became the youngest player to complete a Grand Slam on July 24, 2000, winning all four major championships: the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA. In his unprecedented career, he is the first player since 1937 to repeat a win in the PGA Championships. With his victory in Augusta, GA on April 8, 2001, Tiger Woods swept modern golf's four major championships. No one has succeeded in this sport more quickly or decisively than Woods.

Before his 1996 professional debut, he was the youngest player to win the U.S. Junior Amateur title at the age of 15 and the first to win three of them. He left his amateur status and moved on to the pro circuit on August 28, 1996. In December 1996 and in 2000, he was named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year, becoming the first athlete to ever be accorded that honor twice. In 1997 he signed endorsements with both Nike and Titleist that were worth $60 million over five years. His coach since 1992 is Butch Harmon (born August 28, 1943 in Detroit, MI).

Woods is known as a fine man who was raised with love, rules, respect, confidence, and pride in his heritage that includes one-eighth Black, one-eighth American Indian, one-fourth White, one-fourth Chinese and one-fourth Thai, an All-American mixture. His parents raised their only child to take a productive place in society. His father Earl Woods, a retired military man, gave him his first golf club at the age of three and taught him concentration. When Tiger practiced as a kid, his dad would shout, wave things, run around and do whatever he could to distract him, from which the young Woods learned to focus. Now as a professional on the green, he will smile and wave at people, but when he turns his attention to his game, he moves into a zone that is focused. Earl Woods wrote a book about his famous son aptly named "Training a Tiger," published in June 1997.

A Buddhist, Woods confirms that he meditates, but not as much as he used to. Though his world has become a glittering succession of private jets, chauffeured limos and room service, friends say that he is still his own easy-going, video-game-loving young self. Before his 25th birthday, Tiger broke up with former girlfriend Joanna Jogoda and his dad remarked that he’d probably not marry before 30. Young Woods had other things on his mind that year, including his game. In October his book, “How I Play Golf,” was published. Showing that he enjoys a good time, he dyed his hair blond on a short-lived whim while he was partying at a resort with his pal Michael Jordan over New Year’s.

On April 14, 2002, at Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club, the golfing great captured his third Masters crown -- joining Jack Nicklaus (who won in 1965 and '66) and Nick Faldo ('89 and '90) as the only men to win back-to-back Masters tournaments. With a final round 71, Woods shot 12-under-par 276 for the tournament and collected $1,008,000. Later that year, in July, Tiger met his new girlfriend, Elin Nordegren, 22, a gorgeous blond model and nanny. On November 25, 2003, they became engaged at a game reserve in South Africa, and they married on October 5, 2004 at Sandy Lane Beach resort in Saint James Parish, Barbados. The couple said "I do" at 5:40 PM local time according to a Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation reporter quoted on CNN.

In 2004, Woods lost his #1 world ranking to Vijay Singh, but he continues to astound. By late 2004, Woods had accumulated over $53,000,000 in prize money alone. He won his first ever championship match in Japan on November 21, 2004, bringing to 10 the number of countries in which he has won a title. Still a young man, he has many more matches to win and records to break.

His beloved father and mentor, Earl Woods, died on May 3, 2006 at age 74 of prostate cancer in Cypress, CA.

On August 6, 2006, Woods won another PGA Tour championship, adding another “youngest player ever …” to his name. This win confers upon him “the youngest player ever to win 50 titles.”

On August 20, 2006 he captured his 12th major title when he won the 88th PGA Championship in Illinois.Woods took another PGA championship on August 12, 2007.

Woods and his wife welcomed their first child, a daughter named Sam Alexis Woods, born “early Monday morning” on June 18, 2007 according to Woods on his website.Their second child, a son named Charlie Axel, was born on February 8, 2009.

Another Brilliant Bing Fire

This is another chart that shows how transformation affect the strength of the DM. Ding-ren transforms into wood stars supported by the yin wood month.

1st criteria : strong - wood season.
2nd criteria : weak - mao against hai and xu.

3rd criteria : strong - ding and ren (turn into wood stars) against ji.
Overall : 2 strong against 1 weak makes this bing a strong DM.

This is a chart of a 3rd year student in a Singapore university. He was one of my students during his pre-U years. He obtained straight As and then got accepted into the Singapore university on a full scholarship. The brilliance of this chart again lies in the rooted useful god of the earth stars. Here again, the negative wood stars are strongly rooted since ding-ren has transformed into wood stars. He has a muscular problem that caused his hands and legs to be weak. Although he is able to walk, he needs some assistance climbing up and down the stairs. Basically, growth problem is a wood problem since wood is the only star that grows.


PostScript (David) : This was interesting. While writing a commentary, I noticed that there may be a transformation fire structure at the Yin Wu Xu combination with lure and supported by season, although the Wu is being pushed up. If this transformation take place, it is no longer a spring season that we are talking about, but the entire fire frames composition rendering it as fire season instead. Ofcourse there is one school that state that, the season as a reference cannot change its cherecter similarly to the self reference, at this juncture the transformation is eminent. If this condition enable such transformation to take place, then the Ren and Ding may not combine and transform into wood. What is your take?

An Architect's Chart

It is very strange to write a perspective about another Architect, in view that it is also my profession. Some how there is some kind or "deja vu" almost telling of my own story in a third party shoe, there is almost bias at some point. I refer to this gentlemen as Mr. Architect and here are his requests: -

"... My own assessment of my own character:

I have always been a very strong headed person. I have excel in my studies and have been quite succesful working as an architect at the early part of my life after completing my degree with honours in Australia. However, I have a problem with been too "serious" with what I do and probably, with myself. I changed my jobs very often and I realised that it is often because I am unsatisfied with my bossess. It seems that I have a major discipline problem with people or institutions "controlling me" from above.

Now, I have set up my own little design practice offering interior and architectural services to people in Vietnam and am also working as a financial trader at the same time. I have found this arrangment most suitable for myself and am making baby steps progress to making a living using my own design and financial skills.

My main question to you is about wealth because I find that I have been a very generous person to friends and relatives but at the same time I am also very senstive towards spending money and earning lots of money. Am I asking too much or do I have the potential in my Bazi to make good money?...

... Actually, I characterise myself as "hot-headed" not from a stubborn point of view because whether at work or in personal life, I can be a very accomodating person. But I find that I am also extremely pursuasive and good at showing people options in the decisions they make. Maybe that is why I have been popular at work with my staff for "narrowing down" their choices because they truly understand the limited choices they have, and at the end, it is them who make the decisions they have to honour, and not me. I was truly the very artistic type who excel in the arts from chinese opera singing, playing the guitar and Gu Qin, to been an actor in chinese stage play and of course, been an architect. But now in my life, I find that I am moving into something very unusual and that is the finance field. I am begining to see something even more creative and powerful in this field than in design or the arts. So maybe you can help me shed some light on this as well.

Thanking you in advance David!..."

So, this is basically a character reading and I wonder how much do they charge in Singapore for such a service?

He is a strong Self Metal born in Shen, Metal Month, supported by the branch and not by the stem. There is a tendency to combine in Zi and Chou but do not transform, luckily. He favours output and wealth. No wealth star is seen from the chart and could he be poor?

A Geng person liked Shi Xiang said as "... Value brotherhood, clearly demarcated the right and wrong, firm, brave, and decisive. Unyielding, unafraid of difficulties as well as defy the mighty. Prefer to be straight and frank in words and actions. Dislike speaking in a roundabout(ndirect) way. Geng Metal people conduct are unusual mighty. Straight and direct when criticize regarding to a incident or an event, therefore have the tendency to offend a people easily. Individuality and personality does not confine oneself into a trivia matter. However vision is sharp and incisive, sense of feeling is acute. Spirit of boldness is excellent, it is said to be fond of influence and power. Good in struggle and battle, particularly for those who born in the month of You (酉) and Shen (申). The eyes is beautiful ,the voice is excellent, and the skin is flair. Noble charisma in the outward appearance . Character is restrain in the inner, moreover lack of thinking in one’s mind. Normally Geng metal people build up their wealth from nothing. Should pay attention to bones and lung and bronchus, colon, teeth and other issues. Geng Metal people speak directly and straight to the point. It is similar to the characteristic of the hatchet. Often voice out the emphasis yet unaware of offended other people. Most of the Geng people build up their wealth from nothing, this is because they like to subdue a task through their own ability. If Geng Metal people have the abundant of earth in the four pillar, it will meet obstacle to get out of a predicament (being recognized). But if the Prosperous Metal meet the Fire, then it will added the softness into the nature of Geng Metal. Result it to more conveyable and flexible...", is clearly defined here.

He is strong headed, largely due to his self structure. There is only him and nothing else. His education in Architecture further mould him into what he is today. It is not easy to survive in an architecture school, let alone make it a good grade. However, it is favourable to him of such training and discipline for his profession both as an employee and a practitioner but it is never an easy task. As this structure indicates he is not being satisfy with himself in the reflections of his employers, as it is not up to his expectation. That result in his job hopping and finally work best to be on his own. He is always in confrontation with authority be it self or others. It is all reflected in the strong self structure, negative in a way that a strong chart does not favour self which weakened his authority star. There is an intrinsic self competition and this is the unseen pressure, if it is not control will bring forth unecessary problems.

Being artitistic is view from his positive output, in a long run, he is telented because of the root. The only shortfall is his officer is not rooted and there is a self star weakening his officer. Wealth is also absent from his chart, which is needed to make his officer star stronger. These left him with 2 things. First, he must refine his talent through his action or output. Second, he must at some times, put aside his principle to gain favours. These favours will bring him the desired wealth.

Anything I left out?

The Fake Follower Chart Of Miss Blue River

Some times ago, Bazi Diary has been informing me that he is doing about 2 – 3 BaZi reading daily when he put up his blog. These are very encouraging as a platform to refine the skill required. Although we came from different school of thought, although not entirely, I am surprised that no matter what method used be it imagery or otherwise, the conclusions are similar and if not, some times, the same. Rarely do we dispute on the techniques and this has proven that the spirit of sharing is of paramount important in this art of metaphysics. Of such, I also take the opportunity to thanks Lwee, Shi Xiang and Mr. Anonymous who contributed unreservedly towards the fruitful discussion on this blog. If one is sharp enough, there are lots of gold nuggets that can be found in these discussions owing to the fact that most of us here did spend a huge fortune to learn these arts, and some contributors were conscious not to reveal too much for fear of going against their own school’s predicaments, which I believed, will dilute by the passage of time. Our ancestors have ways to make the message across. The only humble request, I would greatly appreciate if the anonymous contributors would leave a pseudonym or nickname, so that I can address him/her by a name rather then anonymous, as the one who named is the mother of the myriad things in Dao.

Last week, I received an email of a lady, wish to be known as Blue River, to have her chart read in this blog as an academic exercise rather then a paid reading. These are her request, “… after paying SGD130 for a Zi Wei Dou Shu consultation. I was given certain career -related advice which, if I were to follow it, requires me to switch to a totally different industry. Apparently, the industry I am currently in, i.e. real estate is completely unsuitable for me!

I am looking for a second opinion using Bazi as this is a major life decision. As such, I would like to seek your help to perform an online Bazi analysis for me.

Date of Birth : 30 Nov 69.
Time 17:30.
Born in Singapore.

…If it's not too much trouble, would you also be able to comment on the marriage aspect? I was told by the ZWDS master that any relationship I start now will end in 2011/2012 even though the person will treat me very well. I forgot to ask him how the result would end, whether the other partner is the one who initiates it or am I the one to do so. Is there any way to tell that from Bazi? The other question is career-related, ie. is real estate industry bad for me and which industry should I be in. Also will I be able to run a business and when is the best time to start one?”.

In summary her requests were: -
Should one advise her to have a career change?
Should one advise her to start a relationship now, if not when?
When is the best time for her to run her own business?

Let’s start the ball rolling, she is a Ji earth person born in winter Hai month, not supported by stems and branches except for a Ji stem protruding at the year pillar. Can she be qualified as a weak chart or a fake follower chart? If she is a fake follower, following wealth, that makes all the elements around her favourable, except for herself. She could well be a of a good pedigree, running on, unfortunately, corrugated roads (luck).

She has a career in real estate, meaning in the industry that earth element prevailed. I supposed her scope of works is estate agent, meaning water elements, which is to her is wealth. Being an estate agent is liked salesmanship, for her case, would preferred output, but was not revealed in her natal chart. Apparently these make her task being challenging. The good thing is she has good authority stars that will weaken her further. It is very easy to jump into conclusion and ask someone to just change industry, but this is not our lives. She is 40 years plus, re learning again is not as easy as control-alternate-delete. I would suggest her to make good use of the remaining luck pillars and make good use of her positive elements. She will be entering her GengChen luck pillar by 2010, which is good leveraging on the output. This may have been good luck to her. Subsequently, starting on her own may also been beneficial.

It will be ideal if there is a wood star in her spouse palace and in this case a metal. For a reason that metal being output for her is favourable, getting a husband is not bad for her, however, his role will greatly needed to be supportive. She should start looking for a good candidate during her better luck cycle of 2010 onwards.

She will put forth her input as requested and I stand to be corrected. What is your view on this as is she really a fake follower or simply just a weak chart?

PostScript: Someone directed me to another blog and I find it quite relevant as it states:

"... Yuan Hai ZiPing Quote: JI enters HAI palace see Yin wood, life will come to an end.

Commentary: JI is most afraid of overloading of water. When the JI is weak meaning not supported by resource, enters as in meeting or can be construed as having HAI in the branches of the natal chart or other LP or AP, it will risk itself of contamination. Then when a Yin wood revealed as a YI stem or rooted by a MAO, then health issue may prevail indicating problems of the reproductive system, stomach or hormones and if not taken cared of may eventually lead to morbidity...", Do one see it in this chart?

Another Lucky Chart

This is a chart of a man with great amount of luck. His wealth accumulation started when he strike over RM60,000 in a lottery draw in the early 90's during the xin-chou LP. With this capital, he found his way into the share market and now he has well over RM10 million.

What makes this chart so favourable?

This is a weak xin DM with his positive resource star, positive officer star and positive wealth star, all protruding in the natal chart. On top of that, the useful god, earth stars are also strongly rooted.

His officer fire stars are also strongly rooted. Positive officer stars also represent nobility. It seems that he has donated much to temples.

Who can guess which golfer too is a weak DM with resource, officer and wealth stars all protruding in the stems?

Feeling Lucky

I recently met a gentleman who has just the right attitude of non confrontational nature, but highly influential, which I termed as peacock. The cheracteristic of a peacock is firstly appearing nice and orderly but his way of getting things done his way is highly amirable and impressing. Just don't ask how, as he has his way. The word, motivating is of a better choice just liked the motivational Guru liked Tony Robbins and the aliked. I must say when you look at his chart, you will understand the person behind the peacock in appearance. Let just say, his road of destiny is less bumpy then the one most traveled or in a nutshell, he is simply luckier! So I must admit, the FengShui CasaNova currently in the dock may have just taken a surf up the tidal wave and who knows, he may just walked out many time richer then who he is as a phony master or otherwise?

Perhaps GOD's will is written in the path called the Destiny or simply luck pillar. Be honest, most lucky people has better view of the word determination, not because they are less hardworking, but rather things will usually goes their own ways with or sometime less effort. It is the unlucky one that has to do something adverse much to the potrayal of the notion of Existentialism I think therefore I am. Have you notice why some people always happened to be at the correct place meeting the correct people and getting the correct projects at the correct time? The world seems to be their playground? It always remain the question of the unlucky one as can destiny be changed?

The natal chart is liked a car. A good chart has all the ingredient for a pedigree. However, what use of such a pedigree when the road travels are full of potholes and bumps? Whereas, for a not so pedigree type of natal chart would just be sailing along the way through a smooth super highway reflected in the destiny. This is the bunch of people I called the fellowship of the lucky ones. So the question of lucky does not stem from the strenght of the Self. We seems to see more weak self running important positions liked presidents, chairman, CEO and other. Needless to say there is also weak chart that is worst off, simply because of luck?

Knowing what you know about your own destiny is of paramount important. Knowing what is your favourable elements will make the bump and potholes less painful and knowing how to use the unfavourable elements will bring one up the pedestal of success even if the window of openings lasted only 1 miserable year. This can be known by many names, but that is not important. Your own life path is more important. There is a prophecy that stressed first fate, second destiny, third FengShui, fourth cultivates and fifth knowledge in the order of luck. I must say, it should be read, if it is not fated, yet the destiny can be altered by means of FengShui through cultivations of good deeds in the field of dispersing the opportunity of acquiring knowledge for the unfortunate ones. This is the highest blessing...

A Weak YangRen Structure

I received an email with the following request: -

"... I would like to know your opinion if the following is a yangren structure with strong DM. Yi born in Yin month and the Day master is strong, eventhough there is no aditional wood in the heavenly stems?

That is what I have learned, getting the season is enough to become strong DM, based on Ziping.
The bazi is:

year: bing, shen
month: geng, yin
day: yi, si
hour: geng, chen... "

Yi wood self born in Yin month, beginning of spring. We call this born in season. However, both locations and formations does not support the self. This is a weak chart. Although it is a YangRen structure, it is still a weak chart. Making wood and water favourable.

Need to know the gender of this person in order to chart the luck pillar to confirm such findings. Pehaps the owner of this chart can assist?

PostScript: The rule of Yang Ren Ge shall be a Yang Stem born in the season of pure Qi liked Jia born in Mao, Geng born in You and Ren born in Zi. Bing born in Wu month is not pure as it contains Ji. So this chart is not a YangRen structure.

Transformation That Affects The Strength Of The DM

This is the chart of Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Computers. The yin-mao-chen seasonal combo transforms into wood stars, supported by the yin month and lured by yi in the year stem. This transformation turns the chen earth into wood.

Here are the 3 criterias in determining the strength of the DM.

1st criteria : strong - yin month supports fire DM .
2nd criteria : strong - chen and mao against wei. (chen has turned into wood)
3rd criteria : weak - yi against xin and wu

Overall : 2 strong against 1 weak makes this a strong bing DM.

A chart that has a very strong unfavourable stars in the natal chart is very imbalance and is prone to illness. This chart has a very strong negative wood stars. The main organ for wood stars is the liver. It was reported recently that he has a liver transplant due to liver cancer.

The brilliance of this chart lies in the strongly rooted useful god which are the earth stars.

A Note From Romania

BaZi Diary has just notify me that his faithful fan from Romania has indeed, make an invitation to him to visit Romania and I must say it was a wonderful irresistible gesture. Although he does not agree with the view that his day master was weak, I might as well put it up for a fruitful discussion. You never know, I might be wrong as well. Gui self born in the season of water with water protruding, which is to say he is born in season. One academy in town will conclude that this is a strong chart. Located between fire and wood (transformed by the combination of Ren and Ding), controls fire and support wood, weakened water. Not supported by the branches as well. So, the only conclusion is this is a WEAK chart. Imagery speaking, what is the most important thing for a mist in sheer winter season that may even insult the Sun when it is sheltered partially by the rising mountain and belittle the flickered candle or perhaps the leafless wood that is hibernating? It looks liked a STRONG chart. In summary, what is your calling?

Post Script: Strictly by one school of thought, the solid water pillar will NOT ALLOW Ren and Ding to transform into wood although it is supported by the month These tendency to combine without transformation is significant as to what we would like to seek from the palaces involved.
