Here are some of the teacher’s comments:
DM​ ​Strength:​
Ren​ ​Day Master​ ​born​ ​at​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​winter – wet earth month,​ yet ​​​with​ ​fire​ ​in Yin​ ​and​ ​it​ ​sits ​below​ ​the​ ​DM​ , so the Chou (frozen​ ​earth)​ gets some warmth.​ ​​ ​There​ ​are​ ​3​ ​Stage​ ​6 roots​ ​and​ ​lots​ ​of​ ​Rob Wealth​ ​and​ ​Direct Resource in BaZi, so it is​ still ​​a​ ​strong​ ​DM.​ ​Because​ ​there​ ​is​ ​fire and​ ​wood​ ​in​ ​the​ ​day​ ​branch,​ ​plus lots​ ​of​ ​earth​ ​– DO in the month, so the pattern works well with metal – Xin in the month stem (DR), forming a good DO-DR pattern.


The UG and HG:                                                                                                         Since this is a strong DM, the UG is Fire. Fire has 2 functions: feeds the Office and balances YY/DD. So, it is the best choice. Wood backs fire up, so it is the Helpful God. And they sit together in the day branch, it is an ideal location. It represents her husband and herself have a common interest, and they love each other.

The energy flow of the chart depends mainly on the Yin, because as water goes smoothly towards Jia wood, Jia links with Bing fire inside, and the fire automatically becomes earth and passes the energy on to metal in Chou, it connects Xin on the top and feeds the DM. Thus, the flow keeps circling again and again as long as Yin keeps undamaged.

Luck Pillars Analysis: (11/23/2017)

Since we have the Pattern and UG/HG identified, the Luck Cycle reading is easy: The first 2 LPs have the water on the top, which further strengthens the DM, not bad as the energy flow is smooth. As to the wood branches, Yin and Mao,  as far as they add the strength to the wood, and wood feeds fire, they are good.

Jia-Chen: Jia represents her children; and Chen has the Resource (Gui) of Jia, it has a R (Wu) to the Xin. The flow on both levels are smooth, just waiting to be even better.

The next 3 fire LPs, Yi-Si, Bing-Wu and Ding-Wei, are outstanding as top-bottom connects so well with one strong element. Thus, the hidden fire in Yin shoots out during Bing-Wu and Ding-Wei luck periods. It simply indicates that her husband, represented by DO-Ji frozen earth, can be activated under the heat of sun!

The Facts:

This is a chart of a traditional Chinese woman whose husband was a scholar, and after decades of hard study, he finally passed the court test and became a government officer.

Case – #2

Hour                            Day                              Month                          Year

 Ji  Bing Gui  Ren
 Hai  Zi  Mao  Zi

Questions and Answers:

1. What is the strongest element in this BaZi?

Answer: that’s water; some even think it can “flush” the wood/Mao away.

2. Is this a Follow The Trend Pattern?  If not, what is it?

Answer: No. It is a regular DR pattern.

3. Point out the Useful God, or Medicine God if there is any.

Answer: The Medicine God – Wu dry earth is needed urgently, although Bing is also needed at the same time.

4. Is there any other aspect needs to be balanced?

Answer: Yes, YY/DD.

5. What is the difference in the reading between male owner and a female? (*This is a male’s chart.)

Answer: Male has his LPs start from Jia-Chen, to Yi-Si, to Bing-Wu and Ding-Wei.…, of which the second to the 4th LP are good. But, if it is a female’s chart, then the LP runs from Ren-Yin to Xin-Chou, to Geng-Zi and Ji-Hai, all against the UG and MG!

The Most Important 10 Steps to Make BaZi Reading Accurate –

Although there are more than 10 steps to do a decent BaZi chart reading, but these 10 steps are the most important.

1) The strength of the Day Master’s (DM) and the other 4 elements’. Attention: there is a difference between the stems and branches.

2) Energy impacts: including the season factor, clashes, pairs, trios, semi-trios, harms and punishments…; and how to follow the priority rules to adjust the energy levels for all the elements in BaZi.

3) Energy Flow Study: calculate both the macro and micro flows, pay attention to where it starts and where it ends, with or without being blocked, existing in BaZi or connecting with a LP or AP.

4) Regular Patterns and Special Patterns – must combine the LPs and APs into consideration. It takes a while to get familiar with them, yet they are important, which reveal the “trend” or the strength a person has in life.

5) Understand Yin/Yang Balance, Dampness/Dryness Balance, and find out the UG, HG and/or MG. Many may neglect this, sometimes it could be a life-death issue!

6)  Define the Invisible Gods, Benevolent Gods and Ghosts. Find them and interpret their meanings in charts. Also locate the Void Branches and adjust their energy levels accordingly for making deep level analysis.

7) Luck Pillar – why couldn’t we add the elements from a LP directly into a BaZi chart without letting it work with the visiting years?

8) Add the high-level reading skills – patterns and Xiangs, Ming Gong, Nai Yin, Pregnancy Month and much more. 

9) The “Qiong Tong” and “Di Tian Sui” principles that we simply can’t ignore.

10) To help people to achieve reachable life goals and to reduce bad lucks, we should catch the good timing and apply the right Feng Shui treatments!
