The core of Zi Ping Bazi astrology

INTRODUCTION

The core of Zi Ping Bazi astrology consists of the basic concept of Chinese philosophy, culture and cosmology: Yin and Yang, five elements, ten Heavenly Stems, twelve animals or Earthly Branches and twelve evolutionary levels.

These cosmic forces represent the matrix of cosmic existence and action. The game of Yin and Yang and the five elements is constant. Immediately when Yang appears, Yin follows; when one energetic phase appears the other one will follow. All order and chaos of the World consists of sequences and interlacements of these cosmic forces in the Productive, Controlling, Weakening and Friendly Cycles. Therefore, the insight enabled with Bazi astrology and BaziWay is priceless.

Heavenly Stems

The upper part of the Zi Ping Bazi card consists of four Heavenly Stems from the ten possible. The Heavenly Stems, which can be Yin or Yang, depict a subtle heavenly Yang energy. Each pair of Yin and Yang belongs to one of the five elements: Jia – Yang Wood, Yi – Yin Wood, Bing – Yang fire, Ding – Yin Fire, Wu – Yang Earth, Ji – Yin Earth, Geng – Yang Metal, Xin – Yin Metal and Ren – Yang Water and Gui – Yin Water.

Earthly branches

The middle part of the Zi Ping Bazi card consists of four Earthly Branches from the twelve possible. The Earthly Branches represent materialized terrestrial Yin energy and are connected with the Sun, Moon and Earth Orbits. They are represented symbolically with pictures of animals: Zi – Rat is Yang Water, Chou - Buffalo is Yin Earth, Yin – Tiger is Yang Wood, Mao – Rabbit is Yin Wood, Chen – Dragon is Yang Earth, Si – Snake is Yin Fire, Wu – Horse is Yang Fire, Wei – Goat is Yin Earth, Shen – Monkey is Yang Metal, You – Rooster is Yin Metal, Xu – Dog is Yang Earth and Hai – Pig is Yin Water. The Earthly Branches, as well as the Heavenly Stems, can be Yang or Yin, and belong to a specific energy of the five elements.

Hidden Stems

At the bottom of the Zi Ping Bazi card are Hidden Stems revealing your character, feelings, potentials, talents, competences and relationships.

Levels of evolution

The Zi Ping Bazi card also explains the evolutionary level of the energy you are in. There are twelve Levels of Evolution: 1st Birth, 2nd Washing, 3nd Youth, 4th Official, 5th Blossoming, 6th Weakening, 7th Illness, 8th Death, 9th Graveyard, 10th Disappearance, 11th Conception and 12th Pregnancy. The first evolutionary level of the soul is the youngest and the twelfth one the oldest.

SUPPORTING

The BaziWay predictor of favorable days supports each of your endeavors to improve health, learning, career, relationships, business and earning.

SURPASSING

The BaziWay predictor of favorable days helps you to surpass your personal weaknesses, which slow down your success, health or good relationships.

ACHIEVEMENT

The BaziWay predictor of favorable days helps you to achieve benefits on your life path. On your favorable day, you should be active and exploit opportunities that are being offered to you. The BaziWay predictor of favorable days is the base of your success and achievements.

  • {stem, branch, hidden stems (main [additional], [supporting]), evolutionary level}

EDUCATION

The ten Heavenly Stems represent your external image, how other people see you. They also reflect your visible relationships, events and functions.

The ten Heavenly Stems symbolize subtle Qi (life energy) that descends from the sky. A certain Heavenly Stem reigns in a certain time period and can describe your events, results, successes and failures. When the time period changes, the Heavenly Stem (or energetic cycle) also changes. This usually brings about change in your life and people see you in a different light.

The ten Heavenly Stems signalize the proper time for certain life opportunities.

 

The twelve Earthly Branches represent manifested earthly Yin energy. They explain your feelings, thoughts, appearance, home, possible diseases and other hidden »notes«.

The twelve Earthly Branches take orders from the ten Heavenly Stems. In a certain time period or energetic cycle, a Heavenly Stem gives an order to the Earthly Branches and when they mutually react, they reveal your hidden or suppressed feelings, thoughts or mental states. 

Our feelings, emotions and thoughts depend strongly on the twelve Earthly Branches. They are mostly internalized, until some interaction between the Earthly Branches pushes them out. Through the Earthly Branches, we can see what attracts us or brings us trouble. With knowledge of the Earthly Branches in our natal Bazi card we can prepare ourselves to control our feelings, which could appear unannounced and start like a »forest fire«. 

 

Within the twelve Earthly Branches we can find Heavenly Stems, which are called Hidden Stems. This is a marvelous representation of the hidden Yang (Heaven) energy inside the Yin (Earth) energy, which together symbolically represent Man as the bridge between Heaven and Earth.

The Hidden Stems hold hidden messages of the ten Heavenly Stems, while the twelve Earthly Branches carefully shield them. The Hidden Stems reveal our natural character, feelings, potentials, talents and competences. The Hidden Stems describe the people that are close to us. That means we can find out about our relationships through the Hidden Stems. 

By understanding the mutual action of the five elementary phases of natural energy (Five Elements) and changing of the big and small energetic cycles, we can predict the result of a certain Hidden Stem or relationship, talent or opportunity.

Twelve levels of evolution

The level of evolution describes the rank of energy that we manage in each separate column or in a certain time period. The rank of energy can be strong, medium or weak.

Each of the twelve levels of evolution determines the relationship of Day Master (Heavenly Stem in the day column) with the Earthly Branch in the month column.

Day master

INTRODUCTION

The Day Master is a referential point that represents your real nature while other symbols in the Zi Ping Bazi natal astrological card represent other people, environments and conditions we are in.

There are ten Day Masters: Jia – yang Wood, Yi – yin Wood, Bing – yang Fire, Ding – yin Fire, Wu – yang Earth, Ji – yin Earth, Geng – yang Metal, Xin – yin Metal, Ren – yang Water and Gui – yin Water.

You have to activate the virtues of your Day Master to fulfill the mission of your soul and get the key to your happiness and a better life.

 

Ten Day Masters

Jia

Your day master is Jia – yang Wood. This is the image of a tree.

A tree with its growth gains a greater and greater view and insight of its surroundings, therefore, you like to have an overview of your surroundings and nothing escapes you. A tree provides shade beneath itself - protection from the harsh sun, and this quality is transferred to you, as you are attentive to loved ones, supportive and protective.

A tree has an outlined growth path and you can achieve high goals with perseverance.

A beautiful tree has a beautiful treetop, therefore a person with a Jia day ruler has to ensure that they have a nice and distinctive hairstyle, that reaps success.

You are realistic, down to earth, hardworking, reliable, diligent, autonomous and independent.

You are honest, direct, noble and considerate.

Your virtues are generosity, uprightness, benevolence, readiness to help.

Negative tendencies you have to control are anger, impulsiveness, recklessness, indiscretion.

 

Yi

Your day master is Yi – yin Wood. This is the image of a gentle plant like a flower, grass, vine, small bush.

You are gentle, idealistic and cooperative. A gifted flower is a symbol of grace, generosity and love, and you naturally exude these qualities.

Grass grows everywhere and can take up any fruitful space. Similarly, you are resourceful and know exactly what you want and how to get it, although you may give the impression of indecisiveness. You are a born crisis manager and a natural survivor, who in the most difficult circumstances finds a way to survive. Because you are always looking for new ways of growing, you often invent new things.

Grass and flowers are more flexible than a tree, therefore you need to take care of your suppleness and flexibility; dancing, creativity and art make you prettier.

Wood needs sun, water and soil to thrive and metal to form. You have a natural skill of connecting people, so you thrive in networking, sales, marketing and in general in human relations.

Your virtues are kindness, caring, warmth, inventiveness and durability.

Negative tendencies you have to control are calculation, manipulation and exploitation.

 

Bing

Your day master is Bing – yang Fire. This is the image of a strong fire, wildfire or Sun.

The sun illuminates everything. Your original nature radiates generosity, liveliness and passion. You are very optimistic and honest, so you can easily drive away darkness, secrets and grudges. The sun brings life and joy to all things, so your upbeat nature and smile invigorate and warm every person around you.

There is only one sun, therefore you are self-confident, proud, self-important and a great leader. The sun follows the outlined cyclical Yellow route, therefore you feel safe inside a system that offers everyday routine, so you can demonstrate your reliability and giving back.

Your virtues are openness, honesty, enthusiasm and unconditional help.

Negative tendencies you have to control are intolerance, exaggerating with emotions, impulsiveness and dramatizing.

 

Ding

Your day master is Ding – yin Fire. This is the image of a candle`s flame, a fireplace, a lamp, a street lamp, a pulsating star or the shine of a full Moon.

A fireplace is a source of heat and light, therefore you give a feeling of safety, familiarity and pleasantness. The original nature of fire is to illuminate. Similarly, you naturally affect others and easily enthuse, motivate or inspire. The moon, a candle or a street lamp light the way, provide guidance and lead to the right path, therefore you are a natural guide and leader.

A fireplace or a light that consumes all its fuel is extinguished. Due to your serving nature, you can forget about your own needs, and are subject to burning out. Therefore, you need to take care of your health and organize resting time, in order to recharge your batteries.
A candle is most noticeable and useful at night, therefore, you are more successful in your presentations if they are organized in the evening.

Your virtues are being civilized, polite, refined, ready to help and attention to detail.

Negative tendencies you have to control are indecisiveness, internal unrest, shyness and persisting with unimportant things.

 

Wu

Your day master is Wu – yang Earth. This is the image of a mountain.

A mountain is mighty, solid, motionless and unwavering, therefore, your original nature is distinguished by stability, reliability, honesty and loyalty.

A mountain is a hill that rises high above the surrounding area and offers the best view; therefore you are worldly and naturally clever; you carry a simple and grounded common sense.
Mountains act as borders, therefore you are a natural guardian and have the need to protect something or someone. You are trustworthy and you do not disclose a secret, but carefully protect it.

The path up the mountain is difficult, therefore, access to you is strenuous because you do not open up immediately. You do not mind being alone, as a mountain contains an entire system within itself and is self-sufficient. However, when someone has covered enough of the path, proved and demonstrated their effort, you accept this person and begin to trust them. Then you open your treasury, your inside, which is often a volcano spewing skills, knowledge of the world, opinions and emotions. The wealth you are hiding comes out only if you make the effort to dig for it.

Your virtues are stability, discretion, firmness and honesty.

Negative tendencies you have to control are stubbornness, hesitation, delay, self-sufficiency.

 

Ji

Your day master is Ji – yin Earth. This is the image of fertile soil, humus or sand.

The ground is stable and reliable, therefore stability and reliability are your main qualities.

Fertile soil is the basis on which everything grows. Your inner need and purpose is to coordinate, stabilize, tune, protect, raise, nourish and evolve.

When you sense that someone needs you or that you can be useful, your original nature comes to the surface and you are the first one to offer help. This brings you inner satisfaction. Because you cannot handle stress, you should give yourself enough time to finish projects, so you will not feel rushed. It is very important for you to organize your work in peace and to finish tasks at your own thorough and reliable tempo.

You are productive, nourishing, resourceful, kindhearted and tolerant. Soil is the basis for all living things; therefore, you are devoted and loyal. All these traits are the reason that everyone naturally trusts you. Everything on earth occurs spontaneously and by natural laws, so you have to trust the universe and the natural order and be spontaneous.

Your virtues are flexibility, obligingness, kindness and offering support.

Negative tendencies you have to control are emotional complexity, wavering and greed.

 

Geng

Your day master is Geng – yang Metal. This is the image of a large metal object such as an iron ore, hammer, hatchet or sword.

You are disciplined, fair, concentrated and effective. Going through life, you become a solid and sharp personality with strong momentum that leads you to success. For you, perfection is a need and responsibility a conviction, therefore, you often find yourself in the role of a leader.
An ore is the strongest and most resilient material on earth, therefore you are stable and resistant to impacts, which you withstand without complaining. Similar to the ore that under the blows of a blacksmith eventually becomes a useful sword, your personality forms only when you get certain blows in life. Such a person is accustomed to hard work.
Your symbol is a sword, therefore you are ready to fight for justice, brotherhood and mutual assistance. You are a natural hero, distinguished by courage, determination, selflessness, loyalty, generosity and gratitude.
Remember to persist by your goals for at least five years. By doing so, you will complete a gradual process of self-formation from raw ore into a usable sword that can fight for justice and implement, develop and change anything.

Your virtues are selflessness, loyalty, decisiveness and fairness.

Negative tendencies you have to control are recklessness, impatience and too much pride.

 

Xin

Your day master is Xin – yin Metal. This is the image of small metal object such as a knife, scissors or valuable jewelry.

As jewelry is an ornament of man, so your purpose is sensitive and refined, the complete opposite of roughness.

Xin - yin Metal is a crown on the emperor’s head, therefore, you enjoy the role of a leader and you know how to delegate work and allocate functions. As a member of the royal family, you must radiate suitability, adequacy and elegance. You shine, when others recognize your value and you are given a compliment or praise. You value rewards, respect and status.

A knife is sharp, so you use "harsh" language that cuts more than a sharp sword, if you are challenged. You are an uncomfortable opponent, because you have an excellent memory and can hold a grudge for a long time.

You live for justice, but you have to learn to forgive.

When something needs to be changed, when a transition or revolution needs to commence, you are the right person to take care of it. You are valued at work because you are good at finishing things or bringing them to a desired end.

Your virtues are sophistication, elegance, dignity and justice.

Negative tendencies you have to control are stinginess, greed, manipulation and contempt.

 

Ren

Your day master is Ren – yang Water. This is the image of large water; sea, lake or river.

The element of water symbolizes knowledge and wisdom, so you are distinguished by natural intelligence. You are extroverted, optimistic, inventive and artistic.

Water is very adaptable and adjusts to every shape. Your sociability and adaptability enable you to easily blend in with your environment and adapt to every group.

When water cannot overcome an obstacle, it simply goes around it. You are resourceful and obstacles do not stop you. Because of that, you can enjoy a carefree life style.

All waters flow to a common point. Your ability to connect people is astounding.

Water is constantly circulating around the Earth and supplying all life on Earth. As a water day master, you are rarely still. Water has to stay in motion, or it goes bad. Static jobs do not satisfy you, and can even ruin you. Therefore, if you are a water day master - do not stay still. Move, even if you are on the phone, working or lecturing, because you need movement.

Your virtues are generosity, tactfulness and wisdom.

Negative tendencies you have to control are stubbornness, selfishness and mood swings.

 

Gui

Your day master is Gui – yin Water. This is the image of mild rain, dew, mist, cloud, brook and pond.

A gentle spring rain, dew or cloud symbolizes gentleness, kindness and childlike pleasure, therefore these qualities make up your original nature. Rain feeds the earth, gives water to plants and all other beings. You act nurturing and obliging, and feel a strong sense of responsibility. Water is a symbol of wisdom, so you are intelligent and possess a lot of knowledge. With a gentle advising approach, you easily persuade, advise and convince. You are a natural teacher. 

As a water day master, you are rarely still. Clouds, brooks and rivers have peculiar and changeable form, therefore you need movement and change. It is hard for you to stay in one place and focus on one project. Water is constantly circulating around the Earth and supplying all life on Earth. Water has to stay in motion, or it goes bad. Static jobs do not satisfy you, and can even ruin you. Therefore, if you are a water day master - do not stay still. Move, even if you are on the phone, working or lecturing, because you need movement.

Your virtues are gentleness, attentiveness, kindness and honesty.

Negative tendencies you have to control are suspicion, shyness and gloominess.

 

SUPPORTING, SURPASSING AND ACHIEVEMENT

The better you know your Day Master, the better your life will be, because it represents your essence, your real nature and it is your original spirit. If you know what kind of energy fills you, who you are, what is the purpose of your life, where to find support and how to be useful to the World, you will support your deepest needs and calm your strong yearnings.

When you wake up your lulled virtues that are traits of your Day Master, you have the possibility to exceed some limitations in your life. The Day Master is a diamond that requires sharpening to get brilliant. When you achieve goals, which are harmonious with your Day Master, you will bring genuine pleasure to your life. Being at peace with yourself, will radiate your inner pleasure and perfection. This is the way to continual satisfaction.

Activate the virtues of your Day Master and fulfill the destiny of your soul and get the key to true happiness and a better life.

Celestial animal

INTRODUCTION

In the middle part of the Zi Ping Bazi card we can find the Earthly Branches that represent earthly, materialized yin energy of the Sun (year column), the Moon (month column) end the Earth (day and hour column).

The Earthly branches are symbolically represented with pictures of 12 animals, which are: Zi – rat is Yang Water, Chou – buffalo is Yin Earth, Yin – tiger is Yang Wood, Mao – rabbit is Yin Wood, Chen – dragon is Yang Earth, Si – snake is Yin Fire, Wu – horse is Yang Fire, Wei – goat is Yin Earth, Shen – monkey is Yang Metal, You – rooster is Yin Metal, Shu – dog is Yang Earth and Hai – pig is Yin Water. The Earthly Branches and Heavenly Stems can be Yang or Yin and belong to a certain energy of the five elements.

When people talk about the Chinese horoscope, they mention one of the twelve animals or the Earthly Branch that represents the year of your birth. Knowing the animal that represents the year of your birth gives us insight into 12,5% of the information in our Zi Ping Bazi astrological card. The animal that governs the year of our birth represents our ancestors. In ancient times, people strived to comply with their parents, grandparents and ancestors, therefore the year of birth was an important referential point for astrologers of the time. Present time astrologers look for how a person acts in company, who they hang out with, how much they travel, how they think, emote and react to an environment and how they can gain support from their ancestors in the year column.

The Earthly Branch in the month column represents our parents, superiors and career.

The Earthly Branch in the day column represents our spouse, relationships and domestic matters.

Five Elements      

(wood, fire, earth, metal, water)

{strength, number}

 

INTRODUCTION

The Zi Ping Bazi astrology is based on the understanding of the Five Elements and their mutual interactions. The elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. By understanding the relationships between the Five Elements, we can predict events and situations in the life of an individual.

EDUCATION

It is necessary to emphasize the meaning of the Five Elements. They represent the five elementary phases of natural energy, not physical elements. Wood represents the energy of growing, and not a wood chair or closet as someone anticipates. There are five planets moving in the vicinity of Earth. They are visible with the unaided eye. These five planets represent five elementary energies that create our Destiny and Happiness. These planets are:

  1. Mercury - water pillar
  2. Venus - metal pillar
  3. Mars - fire pillar
  4. Jupiter - wood pillar
  5. Saturn - earth pillar

Ancient wise men understood that the five elementary phases of natural energy have their sources in the twenty-eight constellations, while the five planets are their transformer station that condenses their subtle energy, before it gets to Earth and our lives. From here comes the saying: »The same in Heaven as on Earth or as above so below«.

We have five organs in our bodies (liver, heart, spleen, lungs and kidneys), which are the collectors and transformers of the five natural energies. Man is the child of Nature. This means that the natural forces that move planets and the universe are identical to the forces that manage and support our lives. Man is Nature and Nature is Man.

The BaziWay program can show you the presence (number) and general strength of the Five Elements in your Zi Ping Bazi natal card.

SUPPORTING, SURPASSING AND ACHIEVEMENT

Through the observation of nature and their own being, ancient wise men have recognized that everything happens through the five elementary phases of natural energy. They described them as natural elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The Zi Ping Bazi astrology, Feng Shui and Chinese traditional medicine are all based on the understanding of Nature and the five phases of natural energy.

The Zi Ping Bazi astrology uses the five elementary phases of energy to describe all areas of life:

  • home, family, education, upbringing, health, forefathers, good name
  • sex, personal strength, self-confidence, team work
  • talents, capabilities, dreams, intelligence, creativity, children
  • income, money, property, possessions, relationships, marriage
  • leadership, strength, authority, status, social position

The five elementary phases support each other and slow each other down. This way, the universe keeps everything in balance. Through the Zi Ping Bazi astrology, we can find out which element provides us with financial success. For example, if you need Water as an element to achieve financial success, you can predict the time of arrival of this element using the BaziWay calculator and take advantage of this time for commercial efforts. The Zi Ping Bazi astrology gives us insight into the best time for opportunities to earn money.

Or, a person with a Wood Day Master that is impeded by a strong Metal that represents his/her boss, stress, fear or restriction, may be advised to use a Water day to talk to his/her boss about his/her overload. The element of Water weakens the element of Metal and at the same time supports the element of Wood. Therefore, Water brings a Wood person reinforcement, safety, peace and support and at the same time it weakens the strong Metal element. For the person, this means less stress from the boss or job.

The five elementary phases are priceless as they help us to exceed limitations, fears and weaknesses, because they appear within each event.

10 Gods

Strength of 10 Gods:
DO, 7K, DR, IR, RW, F, HO, EG, DW, IW

DO - Direct officer
7K - Seven killing
DR - Direct resource
IR - Indirect resource
RW - Rob wealth
F - Friends
HO - Hurting officer
EG - Eating god
DW - Direct wealth
IW - Indirect wealth

INTRODUCTION

The 10 Gods represent the advanced understanding of the game between the energies of Yin and Yang with the Five Elements. The relationships between the five elements and the two polarities (Yin and Yang) produce 10 Gods. 2 x 5 = 10. Modern experts of the Zi Ping Bazi astrology emphasize that the 10 Gods have nothing to do with religion, spirits or something similar. Ancient wise men understood the influences of the subtle spiritual word on our physical word, as Gods. They did not treat them as external authorities, like it is in religions. They explained the 10 Gods as subtle heavenly energy landing on Earth through Man and his mind, having an effect similar to a bridge between two spheres of existence. Ancient wise men left us Zi Ping Bazi astrology as a subtle tool, so our minds can more effectively achieve life clarity, wisdom, and at the end, enlightenment. This is the way to once again unite Heaven, Man and Earth. Baziway is a guide and a signpost, for how to harmoniously use the 10 Gods and 12 Earthly branches, to achieve goals with ease and live a quality life.

EDUCATION

The 10 Gods and their meaning in our lives.

God of Resource

The God of Resource is represented by an element that creates, gives birth, feeds, strengthens and supports the element of the Day Master. Because we have Yin and Yang polarity, we get two types of the element Resource, these are Direct and Indirect Resource.

Direct Resource is an element that creates the Day Master but has an opposite polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yang relationship. The Yang element that creates the Yin Day Master is called Direct Resource. The yin element that creates a Yang Day Master is also called Direct Resource. The element of Direct Resource always wholeheartedly supports the Day Master. Because of the Yin and Yang relationship and the creative cycle of the five elements, they have developed a relationship of pleasant creation. Direct Resource is like a mother that selflessly takes care of her children. In life, it presents itself to us through people, matters and locations that offer us or our Day Master support, maintenance, protection, education, care and unconditional love. The person is civilized, refined, kind and educated.

Indirect Resource is an element that creates the Day Master but has the same polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yin or Yang/Yang relationship. The Yin element that creates a Yin Day Master is called Indirect Resource. The Yang element that creates a Yang Day Master is also called Indirect Resource. The element of Indirect Resource unsentimentally supports the Day Master. Because of the unbalanced Yang/Yang and Yin/Yin relationship and the creative cycle of the five elements, they have developed a relationship of less pleasant creation, as the Indirect Resource works as a replacement mother, stepmother or nonclassical support. In life, it presents itself through people, matters and locations that offer us or our Day Master maintenance, protection, education, care and love, but in a more non-traditional and unconventional way. The person likes to explore.

Direct Resource represents an individual’s origin, culture, family reputation, generally accepted conventional level of education or knowledge, social position, an individual`s ability to contribute to society by respecting social principles and personal manners.

Indirect Resource represents unconventional, alternative, eccentric or even paranormal knowledge, education, upbringing and behavior. It represents the different knowledge, actions and way of thinking of an individual that stands out from the ordinary and general accepted.

The element of Direct Resource decreases and calms the strength of the element 7 Killing and prevents its approach to the Day Master. The Direct Resource also restricts the element of Hurting Officer and uses up the strength of Direct Wealth. The element of Direct Resource is a mother to man.

The element of Indirect Resource decreases and calms the strength of the Direct Officer and prevents its approach to the Day Master. Indirect Resource restricts Eating God and uses up the strength of Indirect Wealth. The element of Indirect Resource is a mother to woman.

 

God of Companions

The God of Companion is an element that is the same as the Day Master and represents the individual himself, his personal identity and his feeling of self-worth. It can work as a brother or sister, or as a fan or rival. Because we have Yin and Yang polarity, we get two types of the element Companion, these are Friend and Rob wealth.

Rob Wealth is an element that is the same as the Day Master but has an opposite polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yang relationship. A person with the Rob Wealth element is sociable, independent, individual and can engage others with skilful speech.

Friend is an element that is the same as the Day Master and has the same polarity; there is a Yin/Yin or Yang/Yang relationship between them. The element of Friend matches with the Day Master in element, polarity and symbol. If the Day Master is Yin, Friend is also Yin. The element of Friend elevates and pushes away the Day Master. Even though Friend pushes the Day Master away, it still gives him momentum to become more confident and daring. A person with the Friend element is good at working in a team, values camaraderie and is skilled at networking and connecting with other people.

Rob Wealth has, similarly as the Hurting Officer, somewhat of an advantage in modern times, as a person can climb high with social adaptability, charisma, networking, seduction, bragging and rumors. For instance, many film stars have Rob Wealth in their Bazi card. In traditional societies, these characteristics were attributed to social climbers, adventurists and thieves. Rob Wealth has countless social abilities and can speak and persuade, easily uses social ties and asks for favors when needed. A person with Rob Wealth feels at home in this modern technological society. Rob Wealth represents the top of corporate and personal success.

Friend is the embodiment of the concept of relatives, equality and self-worth. It describes relationships or situations, in which all parties are equal and the same. Friend represents an individual’s identity, how they see themselves and their self-worth, confidence, inner strength and willpower.

Rob Wealth strengthens the power of the Day Master, controls the element of Wealth, resists the element of Influence and decreases through element of Output. Rob Wealth represents an individual`s fans and rivals.

Friend strengthens the power of Day Master, controls the element of Wealth, resists the element of Influence and decreases through the element of Output.

 

God of Output

The God of Output is an element that is birthed/created by the Day Master. Because we have Yin and Yang polarity, we get two types of the element Output, these are Eating God and Hurting Officer.

Hurting Officer is an element that is created by the Day Master but has an opposite polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yang relationship. The Yin element that is created by a Yang Day Master is called Hurting Officer. Hurting Officer can significantly decrease the power of the Day Master, while it encourages expression of talents and potentials. A person with a Hurting Officer element likes to be in the forefront, is rebellious and breaks the rules. We can find Hurting Officer in actors, singers, dancers, athletes and representatives. It likes to present something less traditional and more revolutionary. The person is intelligent. A woman with a strong Hurting Officer can easily stand up to her husband or boss.

Eating God is an element that is created by the Day Master and has the same polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yin or Yang/Yang relationship. Eating God represents talents and inner cultivations of the Day Master. Eating God can decrease the power of the Day Master. The Day Master decreases his energy through the Eating God, while activating his inner potentials, thoughts, speech, behavior, talents and wisdom. A person with the Eating God element is intelligent, thinking, philosophical and extravagant. They enjoy art, reading and writing and food.

Hurting Officer represents everything that arises from the Day Master: ideas, speech, creativity, talent, work, achievements, dreams and ambitions. Hurting Officer allows the Day Master a meaningful existence through goals, dreams and inspiration.

Direct Wealth is an element that is controlled by the Day Master but has an opposite polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yang relationship. Direct Wealth is in a controlling relationship with the Day Mater which means that a person with Direct Wealth has a tendency for domination, control and supremacy. They emphasize sensory pleasures and have a strong sense for glory and success. They are attracted by things that are of benefit to them. The person lives by an established system, and is ready to work hard for regular pay. A sense of security is a priority.

Indirect Wealth is an element that is controlled by the Day Master but has the same polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yin or Yang/Yang relationship. The Day Master is stronger and freer in the control of Indirect Wealth as opposed to Direct Wealth. Indirect Wealth creates competitive wealth and represents real estate that a person owns or indirect, uncertain and changeable sources of wealth. A person with Indirect Wealth has a wish to control, govern and be superior, but is not persistent and is less tied to losses and gains. They have a quick mind and they find fast solutions and adjustments. Direct Wealth is compared to Indirect Wealth more possessive and persistent, while Indirect Wealth is possessive, but with less persistency and more openness.

A person with Direct Wealth is responsible, trustworthy, reliable, respectful, principled and is an upstanding person. It sticks to traditional and reliable sources of income. Everything in life has a certain price. The concept of wealth is connected to the ability to control life conditions. Capable, diligent, persistent, decisive, dignified people are sure to earn more than the incapable and lazy.

Indirect Wealth represents enterprising or earning money through calculation and opportunism. A person earns from more indirect sources of income. A person knows how to handle money. It also happens that a person is poor and becomes rich or the person is a visionary that offers a new way to meet certain needs. Big success and earnings can be acquired through Indirect Wealth with something nonstandard or through taking risks that can make a person rich overnight. A person likes to work for himself/herself more than for others.

Direct Wealth produces the element of Influence, decreases the strength of the element of Output and controls and restricts the element of Resource. Direct Wealth is the wife for a man and the father for a woman.

Indirect Wealth produces the element of Influence, decreases the strength of the element of Output and controls and restricts the element of Resource. Indirect Wealth is the girlfriend or father for a man.

Direct Officer is an element that controls the Day Master but has an opposite polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yang relationship. A controlling relationship means that the Day Masters power decreases and brings him stress and worries and in certain cases even serious harm. Because of the creative Yin and Yang polarity between the Day Master and Direct Official, their controlling relationship is filled with good intentions, therefore the Day Master wants to follow the rules and laws of the Direct Officer. A person with Direct Officer is an official in the literal sense of the word; it follows rules, honors tradition and is a role model for traditional, organized or conservative leadership.

Seven Killing is an element that controls the Day Master and has the same polarity; they are governed by a Yin/Yin or Yang/Yang relationship. Seven Killing decreases the power of the Day Mater even more than Direct Official, as it also brings stress, worries and serious harm. If the self-will and arrogance of Seven Killing decreases, Seven Killing can transform into a respected authority that has the power to find solutions in hard situations. A person with Seven Killing comes alive when in a stressful and dynamic environment and is the complete opposite of Direct Officer; daring, wants change, competitive, worships everything new and is an example of unconventional and aggressive leadership.

Direct Officer represents a person that is respectful, just, renowned and honored. Direct Officer represents everything that is good and appropriate. It predicts status and an official title. The control that Direct Officer has over the Day Master works as leading and guiding through a positive example, an the element of Direct Officer represents noble and positive principles in life.

Seven Killing is aggressive and strong by nature. We find it in soldiers and commanders, police officers, top sportsmen, propulsive businessmen, and other professions where fighting, aggressiveness and strength are required. The element of Seven Killing is a trademark of movie super heroes that enthuse and guide the masses. The disobedient, individual and killing drive of Rambo is a good example of Seven Killing. If a person wants to be on the top of a business, then he/she requires Seven Killing, because you need to eliminate the competition and a person with Seven Killing is born to do that.

Direct Officer decreases the strength of the element of Wealth, produces the element of Resource and controls and restricts the element of Companion. The element of Direct Officer is the husband for a woman and superior woman for a man.

Seven Killing decreases the strength of the element of Wealth, produces the element of Resource and controls and restricts the element of Companion. Seven Killing is the boyfriend for a woman and a superior for a man.
