BaZi History

The origin of BaZi was founded in Tang Dynasty, about 5000 more years ago in China. As every system in the world has to go through a development period from simple to complex, BaZi has gone through the same way. In the meantime, I Ching was developed as a twin to BaZi.

BaZi History

At the beginning stage, ancestors used I Ching to interpret universe; then they used the Year Stem as the DM, and predicted lives based on the year pillar only. Lee, Xu-zhong (761 ~ 813), the founder, further expended it to 3 pillars – year, month and day. Of course, that was still rough and inaccurate.  Later on Xu, Zi-ping (907 ~ 960) during Five Dynasty period finally created the 4 Pillars, putting all the energies from one’s birth year, birth month, birthday and hour together in one chart, and selected the Day Stem as the DM. Because he completed the structure of BaZi, so people call BaZi: Zi Ping Ba Zi” (or Four Pillars).

Since then, BaZi had formed its own unique system and hundreds of masters in the next couple thousands of years kept making annotations and embellishments to its body, thus almost perfect BaZi theory has been developed with thousands of real life samples for references today. There are many famous masters who wrote BaZi books, just name a few here:

Xu, Zi-shen (Song Dynasty) wrote “Yuan Hai Zi Ping” (meaning: A Sea of BaZi Knowledge)

Liu Ji (1311 ~ 1375, Ming Dynasty) wrote Di Tian Sui” (meaning Heaven Secretes)This is the most concise, yet profound, BaZi book. Written by the Liu Ji, (also called Liu Bo Wen) a famous military leader, politician as well as a BaZi guru. By focusing on the five elements, seasonal features, stem and branch characteristics, yin-yang balance, pattern structures, impacts and energy flow, etc., BaZi became sophisticated and much more complete!     

Shen Xiao-zhan (Qing dynasty) wrote Zi Ping Zhen Quan (The True Meaning of Zi Ping BaZi) with emphasis on Patterns/Structures, the Useful God and Helpful God, and the relationships between the Day Masters and the Patterns, etc. 

Yu, Chun-tai (1875 ~ 1908 Qing Dynasty), he wrote Qiong Tong Bao Jian”. This book has a focus on the details of elemental and Yin-Yang balance requirements by following the 10 Day Master stems’ intrinsic requirements during each of the 12 month.

During the last empire – Guang Xu of Qing Dynasty up to Republic, there was a famous BaZi master whose name is Xu Le-wu (1886 ~ 1949). He wrote many books, including Di Tian Sui with Deep Interpretations and ZiPing ZhenQuan with Interpretations.

And during the Republic Period, there were another 2 famous masters: Wei, Qian-Li, he lived in the northern provinces and Yuan, Shu-San who lived in the southern areas.

Among a dozen of classical BaZi books, the most important 3 are: “Di Tian Sui”, “Zi Ping Zhen Quan” and “Qiong Tong Bao Jian”.  Although the contents are rich, but the meanings are deeply hidden.  So, without been explained by a teacher, a BaZi learner is very difficult to get deep understandings on those puzzles-filled secrets.

Case Study 1 – male, Mr. Ye

Hour    Day      Month   Year

Ji         Geng   Bing    Ding

Mao     Wu      Wu      Mao

The LPs:

54       44     34    24    14    4

Geng  Xin  Ren Gui   Jia   Yi

Zi       Chou Yin Mao Chen Si

Main Hints:

Main Hint #1 – It seems that we’ve found a very weak Day Master here. Will Geng quit to follow Fire?

Answer: No, because Geng’s Direct Resource – Ji is nearby, it has its root in 2 Wu!

Main Hint #2 – As this person was born in in the mid of summer, and the BaZi is very hot without any water available, shall we pick Water as the #1 Useful God?

Answer: Unfortunately,  it’s not available. So, we pick Ji instead.

Main Hint #3 – If water is so needed for the YY balance, can we predict that the Luck Pillar Geng-Zi the best of his life?

Answer: No, because Zi-Wu clash will be a “bomb”.  The water in Zi simply can’t reduce the heat in this chart!

Case Study 2, male

   Hour                            Day                               Month                          Year

 Ji  Bing Gui  Ren
 Hai  Zi  Mao  Zi

Hint #1 – this is a yang DM, so it won’t quit easily – especially with a main support in the month – Mao!

Answer – Therefore, this is a regular DR pattern chart, and the Resource is not only 100% in the month branch, but also enhanced by lots of water.

Hint #2 –  once the pattern has been determined, find out the Useful God(s). Ask yourself: is the YY/DD (dampness versus dryness) balance good in this chart?

Answer – Since it is regular, we have to analyze the DM strength, except the R/wood, it doesn’t have a solid fire root in the branches.  Instead, too much water pushes out the incoming fire from LPs or APs.  So, it is imbalanced on YY/DD.  The chart has too much dampness, if without extra Bing fire and Wu earth come to fix it, and he was born in a Northern area, he could easily suffer from “spleen” weakness, which includes diseases related to metabolism, digestive and immune system.  That is from the Chinese medicine concept.  Students email me for more details…..

Case Study #3 – New Year Prediction 

The official Dog Chinese Lunar Year starts on Feb. 4th. 2018. Here is the BaZi of it.

Hour    Day     Month    Year

Gui      Ding    Jia        Wu

Mao    Mao     Yin      Shu


We find that the Ding-DM is not weak, there are woods around it, and the month carries Bing (RW), and Mao-Shu can make fire too. Similar to a volcano – this earth has lava hidden inside. If conflicts happen among the branches that shakes the earth structure, potential eruption or earthquake may occur, especially during summer! Yet, as the first hour of Yin month, Bing is needed! Jia is the True God, and it has Gui to nourish it, thus becoming powerful. It controls Earth – which represents stability.

The #1 Useful God is Bing fire – it can stabilize the DM, and extends to the entire chart. Wu branch is a hidden Invisible God which has Ding in it.
Wood + Fire represents the main leaders in this Bazi – forming a R-HO Pattern. This chart has little Metal and the Water, as Wu-Gui can be remotely paired and make some fire. What does that mean? That is a sign of the technology and economy growth in 2018; in the meantime, competitions and fighting between countries will occur as well.
The deficiency of Metal and Water indicates some trading difficulties will happen, and the cash flow will be restricted.  In addition, watch out natural disasters, as they may occur in certain areas, such as North or West, especially during May, June and July!
Case Study #4 – male 
Hour     Day    Month  Year
Xin       Jia     Wu      Ji
Wei      Yin    Chen   Hai 
Analyze this chart carefully to make sure that the following questions are solved correctly. Otherwise, you can’t make accurate predictions for this man.
Question 1Based on the season and the strong branch it sits on, can you determine that Jia is a strong Day Master?
Answer 1: It seems yes, because Jia has one solid root in Yin and another in Hai, and month Chen belongs to the spring.  But, after an in-depth study, it is comparative weak after comparing with the other elements. Why is that? Because spring has 3 months, Chen is the last month (from 4/5 ~ 5/5 usually), and it contains earth mainly. And there are two earth, Wu and Ji, showing in the stems, plus Xin-the Officer.  Jia is facing a challenge in real life (stems represents reality), though the branch is supportive.
Question 2: According to the month branch and the other factors, does the pattern of this chart belong to Indirect Wealth? Or Wealth + Resource? Or 3 Rare Gods (W-O-R)?
Answer 2: It is a 3 Rare Gods chart. Because Chen contains the Indirect Wealth-Wu, and the Direct Resource-Gui and, plus the Direct Officer Xin shows in the hour. Although no metal is found in the month branch, the earth in the month and in Wei feed Xin, so it is healthy and without fire on the top to melt it. Therefore, it is valid a W-O-R pattern.
Question 3: Please define the Useful God and the Helpful God.
Answer 3: Since the analysis and the calculations have been done, the answer is clear: The UG is Resource – water – it mitigates Officer and balances Yin-Yang; Officer metal can help if it appears with water (such as: in the branches there are 2 branches with water), but if it appears as a stem, it could be less effective, yet still welcome. The DM is weak and mitigation (R) is the first concern in this BaZi.
