QIMEN: I AM… THE BLACK TORTOISE

Students of the JY Mastery Academy would be familiar of the depiction of the Black Tortoise as Darth Vader from the Star Wars trilogy. I’ve often wondered why. I watched Star Wars so many decades ago, I can no longer remember Darth Vader’s super power. All I remember is weird and hollow breathing!

In general, the Black Tortoise is likened to a magician. For those of you who are familiar with the Dragonlance Chronicles, this deity reminds me of the mage, Raistlin (or to be more contemporary, perhaps Loki is better). It is unconventional. It is the most intuitive of the 10. And, it is the master of illusions.

Before We Go Any Further, I Am Talking About Your Subconscious

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War. It is a tool designed for strategy and tactics (forecasting and execution). However, there is a spiritual side to Qi Men Dun Jia which believes that we are, each of us, naturally connected to one of ten universal energies.

The ten QMDJ deities are basically ten different manifestations of the universal energy. They are neither demons nor angels. Like all energy forms, they are neutral. Think of your personal deity as your subconscious. It is yours to command. It doesn’t rule you.

The Gifts Of The Black Tortoise: The Power of Persuasion

Black Tortoise individuals tend to be very adaptable, extremely intelligent, and very good at hiding that intelligence from the world. There is always a chameleon-like sense of fluidity about the Black Tortoise personality. In essence, your personality can change depending on who you hang out with. You become who you need to be, in that moment in time. With that in mind, for heaven’s sake, don’t hang out with addicts!

In this, the Black Tortoise and the Red Phoenix individuals share the same trait – the ability to adopt other people’s vernacular and vocabular. You are able to change your vocal tones, sentence structures, syntax and semantics to mirror the person you are talking to.

But before you label this skill as bad, most Black Tortoise and Red Phoenix individuals do not mirror with bad intentions. This is a skill that comes automatically and stems from a desire to enhance understanding. If you ‘speak’ their language, it will be easier to reach an accord.

And because of this, your ability to persuade and influence increases exponentially.

Additionally, the Black Tortoise also comes with the gift of empathy. Black Tortoise individuals can easily pick up non-verbal cues beyond the words that are pouring into your ears. You can sense feelings, emotions, and thoughts. It is very common for a strong Black Tortoise to provide the answer to a yet-unspoken question.

The Weaknesses of the Black Tortoise: Hello Schizo?

The world can be a very noisy place for a strong and connected Black Tortoise. Being the empath that you are, there is always a danger of absorbing too much and therefore, easily affected by other people. Try walking down the corridor of an airport. You feel simultaneously – excitement, anxiety, anticipation, boredom, and many more – all external of you.

Does this sound a little schizo? Maybe… but please do not slap a schizophrenia label on all Black Tortoise individuals. They are empaths. They can pick up on emotions and energy levels. But they’re not delusional!

The only way around this weakness is to mentally create an ‘off’ switch. This is a skill that needs to be practiced. For example, tell yourself – when I pull on my earlobes (just an example), I will stop picking up on these external cues.

How To Awaken Your Black Tortoise Powers?

First – programme yourself. As I’ve said before, the control of all the Qimen Deities require positive thinking. Because, again, they are neutral. They are neither good nor bad. They just are. If your thoughts and emotions are constantly negative, that becomes your reality. When you succeed in changing your thought patterns and get on the upward spiral, that too becomes your reality.

This requires practice. Because it is easier and more convenient to be negative than positive. Changing ourselves is how we change our destiny. And nobody ever said it was easy.

A great way to use the Black Tortoise powers is to have some knowledge or training in NLP. At the very minimum, get interested in learning body language skills. Not only will this help you with your own programming, but will also give you a deeper understanding of human behaviour.

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

What happens if your Black Tortoise gets out of control? Oops…

QIMEN: I AM… THE RED PHOENIX

The Red Phoenix, the Qi Men Dun Jia, is literally the power of speech in all its forms. It’s the potency of self-expression and because of that, governs anything related to speech. On the positive spectrum, it symbolizes the arts, the spoken and written word, civilization itself, information, and intellectual property. On the flip side, it can also represent the negative side of words – arguments, rumours, and disagreements.

In a nutshell, when you have the Red Phoenix in your subconscious, your words have power!

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War.

The Gifts Of The Red Phoenix: When Words Have Power

I’m sure you’re figured out by now that communications would be the primary skill for anyone with the Red Phoenix in their Destiny Palace. Animated, very persuasive and supremely articulate, the Red Phoenix individual has the capacity to influence others with nothing more than words.

Somehow, an individual with the Red Phoenix will always know the right words to use to the right person under the right circumstances. Your success lies in this key factor. Yours is the latent power to mesmerize, inspire, enthrall, charm and influence others to do your bidding.

You can use this gift to either spread hope or hate – it’s really up to you. As I’ve said earlier, the energy vibration is neutral. In the ancient days, people with strong Red Phoenix powers are typically the ones who are tasked with either articulating blessings or hurling curses. True fact!

The Weaknesses of the Red Phoenix: The Foot-In-Mouth Syndrome

Trouble comes when your mouth rules your brain instead of vice versa. Red Phoenix individuals tend to be a bit of a babble-mouth, frequently speaking out of turn and ending up in hot soup.

When this power is uncontrolled, the argumentative side of you surfaces. That sharp tongue of yours can easily sever the strongest bridges, especially when you get riled up.

How To Awaken Your Red Phoenix Powers?

Understand that words have power. Internalize it. Deepen your knowledge about languages. Have an intimate understanding of syntax and semantics. They matter!

Learn to speak from your core – your diaphragm. Most of us tend to be shallow breathers and we speak from our throats. When you learn to breathe into your diaphragm and speak with the voice of your diaphragm, that is your true voice of authority and power. 

And most of all, or perhaps easiest of all, change the way you speak to yourself and others. If you are someone who tends to talk in a negative parlance, then guess what… all those negative things you say come into actualization. So stop saying problems, call them opportunities instead. Stop saying ‘I can’t’, change it to ‘I will’.

Easier said than done? I agree – it takes practice. But just consider the ramifications – change your words, change your life!

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

What happens if your Red Phoenix gets out of control? Oops… (I’m not condoning violence in any way, OK? Just that this was a very Red Phoenix moment).

QIMEN: I AM… THE SURGING SNAKE

While the White Tiger is one of the easiest Qimen Deities to connect with, the Surging Snake – the Master of the Environment – is one of the more straightforward powers for Qimen newcomers to use. Because its effect is almost immediate. Want parking? Find parking! The problem is, for most people, their use of the Surging Snake powers does not expand beyond that simplistic usage. In other words, your Surging Snake may be trained only at the ‘find parking’ level.

Before We Go Any Further, I Am Talking About Your Subconscious

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War. It is a tool designed for strategy and tactics (forecasting and execution). However, there is a spiritual side to Qi Men Dun Jia which believes that we are, each of us, naturally connected to one of ten universal energies.

Next: At the top of your Chart, on the right (see diagram), there is a box containing your QMDJ destiny information.

Lastly: Look at the information under ‘Guardian Deity’

The Gifts Of The Surging Snake: The Gift of Observation

Also known as the God of Fire or the God of Deception, the Surging Snake also has a rather bad reputation. In Qimen forecasting, the presence of the Surging Snake indicates lies, misdirection and deceit.

But in the context of a Qimen destiny reading however, people born with the Surging Snake as their Guardian of Destiny are gifted with very strong survival instincts. The Surging Snake works by detecting anomalies in the energy field. It’s especially effective at detecting changes in energy vibrations. Because of this, people with strong Surging Snake connections are often gifted with sharp insight into what makes people tick.

Meet someone for the first time, and you will immediately figure out the energy pattern of the person. This process is so automatic that you probably don’t even know you are doing it. But once aware, you can use the power of the Surging Snake to enlighten. You can also use its powers to effect a change of emotions in the people near you.

This makes the Surging Snake a master at marketing to the masses. Just by radiating joy, you can influence others to feel the same. And vice versa, if you radiate fear, then Fear Marketing may be your natural selling style. By the way, Fear Marketing is something that the Surging Snake excels in – by triggering the survival instinct of everyone around you.

The Weaknesses of the Surging Snake: The Master of Lies?

Because of this ability, the unfortunate Surging Snake has been labelled as the Master of Lies. I guess it is easier to manifest the Yin instead of the Yang?  From the Surging Snake’s perspective, you are only telling people what they want to hear.

But beware the cost of this tangle of white lies and fudged truths. Because if you do it too often, you will start to assume that others around you are also engaging in deceit and untruths. This will frequently lead to relationship breakdowns due to trust issues.

How To Awaken Your Surging Snake Powers?

Most of us walk around in our daily lives with figurative ‘blinders’ on. So engrossed are we with our own lives (and mobile devices), that we often miss the physical clues around us. Training your Surging Snake powers require you to train your powers of observation. Put that mobile phone away. Walk with your head up, eyes open, constantly scanning the environment. Note what you observe. Is this a familiar route? Then in that case, what’s different about it today?

Try using a different route. Build up that courage to try something new. The survival instincts of the Surging Snake are honed.

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

What happens if the Surging Snake gets out of control? Move to Asia and start a new career as ‘Rain Busters.’

True fact: those of us in Asian motorsports know that the Asian circuits (Sepang, Chang, and Mandalika) frequently hire ‘Rain Busters’ or known locally as Bomoh Hujan/Pawang Hujan. These practitioners are typically engaged for major international events. Their function? To keep the torrential tropical rain away.

This is a fact that I’ve always known. But it wasn’t until I studied QiMenDunJia that I figured out how they do it. Does it work? Like you wouldn’t believe!

QIMEN: I AM… THE WHITE TIGER

One of the easiest Qimen Deities to connect with, the White Tiger is the Guardian of Energy – all forms of energies. We’re talking about your physical energy, vitality and life force. With the power of the White Tiger lurking in your subconscious mind, White Tiger individuals are typically energetic, focused and very strong-willed. These are the people who will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.

Before We Go Any Further, I Am Talking About Your Subconscious

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War. It is a tool designed for strategy and tactics (forecasting and execution).

3. Look at the information under ‘Guardian Deity’

The Gifts Of The White Tiger: Physical Resilience

Physical resilience and endurance are the biggest strengths of the White Tiger. Ever heard of this saying: the mind is willing, but the body is not? No matter how grand our plans, regardless of how smart we may be, nothing can come into fruition without the will to take physical action.

People with the White Tiger as their Guardian of Destiny have great physical endurance. You can take a lot of pain. Basically, you advance by working harder and longer than your rivals. White Tiger individuals tend to be very prolific and productive. Somehow, you are able to find that extra ounce of ‘push’ to power your way through any obstacles or situations.

The Weaknesses of the White Tiger: Relationships

The White Tiger individual tends to experience stormy relationships with a number of people. Due to the aggressive and impulsive nature of this sub-conscious, White Tiger individuals are likely to be more abrasive.

There is certainly nothing wrong with being obsessed about your goals. In fact, it is a very laudable trait to have. However, know that disregard for the feelings of others may cost you a lot of opportunities and support.

How To Awaken Your White Tiger Powers?

This one’s easy. To use your White Tiger powers, you must first be physically fit. It’s time to hit the gym! The fitter you are, the better you will be able to control the White Tiger and command it to help you push the limits of your physical abilities. Command to have unlimited motivation, life force, and energy!

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

QIMEN: I AM… THE GRAPPLING HOOK

In the practice of Qi Men Dun Jia, the Grappling Hook deity has a bad rep. Like a really, really bad rep! So bad, in fact, that most practitioners would shy away from using the Grappling Hook (me included!) It’s mysterious. And enigmatic. Worse, it has a number of very visible character flaws.

Before We Go Any Further, I Am Talking About Your Subconscious

For the benefit of those who may not have been exposed to QMDJ, allow me a couple of sentences to explain. Qi Men Dun Jia is the Art of War. It is a tool designed for strategy and tactics (forecasting and execution). However, there is a spiritual side to Qi Men Dun Jia which believes that we are, each of us, naturally connected to one of ten universal energies.

The ten QMDJ deities are basically ten different manifestations of the universal energy. They are neither demons nor angels. Like all energy forms, they are neutral. Think of your personal deity as your subconscious. It is yours to command. It doesn’t rule you.

So, expect a series of 10 articles around the 10 QMDJ deities. Since I am a sucker for self-punishment, I start with the hardest – the Grappling Hook.

How To Know Which Of The 10 Represents Your Subconscious

1. Plot your Bazi Chart here: https://bazibz.masteryacademy.com/

2 At the top of your Chart, on the right (see diagram), there is a box containing your QMDJ destiny information.

3. Look at the information under ‘Guardian Deity’

What’s So Bad About The Grappling Hook?

Since the Grappling Hook has a bad rep, let’s get the negative stuff out of the way. The easiest way to visualize a powerful Grappling Hook behaving at his or her worst is to look at how this guy operates:

Narcissistic, ostentatious, and enamored with power, an uncontrolled Grappling Hook excels at causing confusion. Forget about the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing! When it comes to an uncontrolled Grappling Hook, the right hand doesn’t even know about the existence of the left hand. This is a master of disinformation and panic.

But notice, I stressed on the adjective ‘uncontrolled’. The negative traits manifest when the person succumbs to the sweet allure of power.

The Gifts Of The Grappling Hook

One of the biggest gifts of the Grappling Hook is an exploratory mind and mental resilience. For all the Grappling Hook’s stubborn insistence of doing things their way (and only their way), the Grappling Hook individual is curiously open-minded about alternative solutions.

In a way, this power is like the mixologist of the universe. It has the ability to bring techniques from different fields, mix them together, and come up with a brand new cocktail of solutions. This one has out-of-the-box thinking down pat!

The Grappling Hook also comes with a strong precognition about what works and what doesn’t. You just ‘know’!

Given the relentless grit gifted to the Grappling Hook individual, when you bend the powers of the Grappling Hook to your will, you become endowed with one of the most important universal gifts of all – mental resilience! The trick to using this gift is to stay in control. Never allow yourself to be trapped in the past.

The Grappling Hook also has the strongest affinity with nature, medicine, food, herbs, land, property and agriculture. What if you were to contribute this ability to find alternative solutions to the medical world or to environmental issues? Under such circumstances, when the lust for power is no longer self-serving, but serving a greater good instead, somehow it doesn’t seem so bad, does it? Although, I admit, this description is sounding a bit like Thanos!

How To Awaken Your Grappling Hook Powers?

The easiest way to awaken your Grappling Hook powers is to cultivate its biggest gift – your exploratory mind. Consciously widen your knowledge base. Get curious about… well, everything! Research!

Another way would be to use the journaling technique. Journal every experiment – what you did, the outcome and learnings. This journal is for keeps. When stumped by a seemingly unsolvable problem, flip through the journal. You’d be amazed at the solutions that suddenly seem ‘obvious’.

Lastly, the intent of using this subconscious power is the most important. Use it for the greater good or with the right intentions!

Tongue Firmly In Cheek…

And for those who are curious about what happens if you use it for the wrong cause…

Sorry, that was just me being snarky! Haha! Until the next article… hope you enjoyed this.

2022 AND THE GUI WATER DAY MASTER

Gui Water (癸)  Day Masters, when your Companion element produces your Output star in the 2022 Ren Yin year, it’s time to party it up! But since life is not about all-play-and-no-work (I wish it was), let’s put the jokes aside and get down to it.

2022 GUI WATER: HOW CONNECTED ARE YOU?

Gui Water 2022

Much like the Xin Metal (辛) Day Masters, the energies of 2022 also presents the Gui Water (癸) Day Masters with outward-facing opportunities.

  1. Granted, the Gui Water (癸) Day Master is already adept at social circumstances. You are able to meld with people of all backgrounds and lifestyle. Basically, you may be a bit mysterious, but you certainly know how to get around! With your Ren Water (壬) Rob Wealth star taking up prime spot on the Heavenly Stems, 2022 is your chance to increase your fan base and your tribe.
  2. Your Jia Wood (甲) Output star increases in strength with the advent of 2022. How do you then increase your fan base and tribe? By upskilling your verbal persuasive skills, of course.
  3. But it’s not all hot air, of course! Your Bing Fire (丙) Wealth star is reminding you that your ability to attracts fans must be anchored on solid responsibility and accountability.
  4. Much like Instagram influencers who gather fans for their actual achievements instead of personality, your Wu Earth (戊) Officer star is just waiting to confer social acceptance and status to you.

The energies of the 2022 Ren Yin year represent external opportunities that are being given to you. It’s up to you to take the plunge. An alternative way to use the energies of the 2022 Ren Yin? It’s a great year to learn from and model the success strategies of your competitors. Much of what they do will now be public. Lean from them!

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single Day Master.

2022 AND THE REN WATER DAY MASTER

If you are a Ren Water Day Master, the 2022 Ren Yin could possibly pan out in two different ways. It could either be a year where you expand your horizons, or it could also turn out to be a year of self-discovery. Since your Bazi chart belongs to you, you get to decide which one it’s going to be. Why not a little bit of both?

2022 REN WATER: A YEAR OF SELF-DISCOVERY BY EXPANDING YOUR HORIZONS

Most Ren Water Day Masters are renowned for their ability to get along with… well, pretty much everybody.

2022 Ren Yin
  1. With the overflow of your Friend Star in the 2022 Bazi chart, you can certainly look forward to plenty of networking opportunities. At the surface level, 2022 could be the year of new friends, new contacts, and perhaps even a new social circle! Like the river flowing inexorably to the sea, these new friends will play a critical role in expanding your horizons.
  2. With your Jia Wood (甲) Output star featuring prominently in 2022, you can certainly expect to meet new friends who share your lifestyle, ideals, dreams and aspirations. This will be a great time to explore new ideas together.
  3. With your Bing Fire (丙) Wealth Star and (4) Wu Earth (戊) Influence Star in play, you don’t need to worry about things being ‘all talk and no action’. The new ideas could lead to new collaborations which will require targeted action on your part. It’s time to enhance your ability to corral talents and leverage on your network.

The energies of the 2022 Ren Yin year represents external opportunities that are being given to you. It’s up to you to take the plunge. If nothing else, 2022 is also a great year to enhance your self-confidence and self-esteem by taking action towards realizing your dreams.

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single Day Master.

2022 AND THE XIN METAL DAY MASTER

At the basic levels of Bazi studies, the Xin Metal Day Master (辛) are typically pictured as fine jewellery. It is taught that most Xin Metal Day Masters, like the jewellery that represents them, enjoys attention. It’s a generalization. It’s not 100% true, of course. Not all Xin Metal Day Masters are equipped to handle attention. But then 2022 happens…

2022 XIN METAL: MAKE SURE ALL THAT GLITTER IS GOLD

For the Xin Metal Day Master, the 2022 Ren Yin (壬寅) is the perfect opportunity to craft or upgrade that outer skin, that exterior persona we all have and use, in order to integrate smoothly into society.

While little has been written about the concept of persona, it basically represents the identity you use to deal with the outer world. We all have a persona. Thus it begs the question: are you aware of what you are projecting out into the world? Is there a dissonance between what you are projecting with who you really are?

2022 Xin
  1. For you, the 2022 energies begin with your Ren Water (壬) Output star. The Hurting Officer is all about attention – gaining attention, using attention and capitalizing on the attention to further your goals.
  2. But don’t just demand attention for the sake of attention! Your Ren Water (壬) Output star produces your Jia Wood (甲) Wealth Star. This attention must be based on actual capacity and achievements. Ideally, this attention must centre around the work that you are doing.
  3. Your Jia Wood (甲) Wealth Star then produces your Bing Fire (丙) Officer star. For career professionals, if you play the game right, the possibility of attaining a promotion is there. For business owners, this Direct Officer star can bring you opportunities to grow your niche.
  4. Finally, the energies land on your Wu Earth (戊) Resource star. This is where you need to deepen your knowledge. This is where we make sure that all that glitters, is real gold!

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single Day Master.

2022 AND THE GENG METAL DAY MASTER

In the study of Bazi, the Geng Metal Day Master (庚) is frequently visualized as a sharp knife, a sword or an axe. If you really were the proverbial axe, let’s imagine what you would need to become the best axe ever! You will need to be forged by Fire; you will need Water and Earth (Stone) to whet and sharpen your keenness; and you will need Wood to be useful. Along comes 2022…

2022 GENG METAL: INNOVATION IS THE NAME OF THE 2022 GAME

For the Geng Metal Day Master, the 2022 Ren Yin (壬寅) brings a formation much-loved by Bazi practitioners – the Eating God producing Wealth formation! Sounds good already, doesn’t it? It’ll sound even better when I explain.

Given the prominence of the Ren Water (壬) in the 2022 Bazi Chart, Geng Metal Day Masters may find themselves swamped with a tsunami of innovative ideas!

In no time at all, I’ll wager that the action-loving Geng would have converted those sparks of inspiration into an actionable plan. Again, with Wood energies so strong in 2022, it would be a rare Geng Day Master who has not spotted at least 20 opportunities by the end of the first quarter.

Along comes your Bing Fire (丙) Officer star and your Wu Earth (戊) Resource star to remind you not to take on everything yourself. Break down the plan into step-by-step milestones and goals. Get things done one part at a time, logically and methodically.

2022 GENG METAL: AN EXAMPLE

Sounds a bit vague, I know. So let’s hinge an example around it. Let’s say… your 2022 goal is to start a side gig.

2022 Geng
  1. The Ren Water (壬) Eating God represents the many ideas that will spark this year.
  2. Your Jia Wood (甲) Indirect Wealth is the act of fitting those ideas into the gaps in the market.
  3. Your Bing Fire (丙) Direct Officer helps you lay down the structure and milestones. (For example: Step 1 – get your government permits and statutory sorted; Step 2 – fix your business systems, payment systems, banking systems; Step 3 – nail down the marketing plan… and so on and so forth)
  4. Use your Wu Earth (戊) Direct Resource to help you stabilize and put everything in place before moving on to the next step.

So… Idea to Plan to Structure to Experience/Expertise. Wash-Rinse-Repeat. Stick to consistent action every month. By the time the Rabbit hops along, you would be amazed by how far you have come.

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single Day Master.

2022 AND THE JI EARTH DAY MASTER

Ah! The ever-resourceful Ji Earth Day Master. Let’s think on this a minute. What would the land need to be fertile? How can we help the land be more productive? Bear fruit? Water and sun in abundance, of course. And that’s precisely what the 2022 Ren Yin or Water Tiger year brings to you.

2022 JI EARTH: TIME TO BE FRUITFUL

2022 Ji Earth

At first blush we see your Ren Water Wealth star (1) on the Heavenly Stems, producing your Bing Fire Officer star (2). This is indicative of hard work being acknowledge. It’s a little different from my previous post about 2022 and the Ding Fire Day Master where authority is gained based on what you know. For the Ji Earth Day Master, this authority is conferred based on what you can deliver.

With your Office star (2) in a mutually-producing relationship with your Resource (3), your experience and wisdom also comes into play. To simplify: you work, you lead, you learn.

Finally, your Wu Earth Companion star (4) brings focus and discipline. The Ji Earth Day Master typically has a tendency to scatter your energy too wide. Kind and giving, you frequently take on too much, a trait that could be detrimental to your own progress. This Wu Earth Companion star is meant to help you channel your hard work as represented by your Ren Water Wealth Star (1).

2022 JI EARTH: SHEER HARD WORK MAY NOT BE ENOUGH

But there’s something missing in the picture. To be even more productive, the land needs to be toiled. This is where you need to play your part.

Working quietly in the background will definitely be counter-productive. Suffering in silence is so over-rated. Instead, learn the art of gaining and keeping attention. Learn to sell your skills. Speak up. Share your knowledge. And perhaps most importantly, learn to ask for what you need. Vocalize your needs for support to further your goals.

As you do that, may you find 2022 to be a riot of abundance!

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single Day Master.
