Sometimes viewed as an invigorating and cleansing autumn rain, sometimes described as a clear stream flowing over mineral rocks, the Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster pillar is curiosity personified.

Sometimes viewed as an invigorating and cleansing autumn rain, sometimes described as a clear stream flowing over mineral rocks, the Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster Day Master is curiosity personified.


A sensitive Water pillar at its core, the Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster is considered as the most inquisitive of the 60 Pillars. There is a wonderful sense of child-like wonder within this pillar. You have the initiative to explore new concepts and the fearlessness to tread new paths.

How does that come about? Let’s have a look.


The Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster sits on, and is supported by, your Xin Metal (辛) Resource element. This makes you an unconventional learner with a craving for knowledge and new experiences.

It also represents your ability to self-educate. Anything and everything that you are curious about, you will somehow manage to pick up the know-how.

And what a wonderful gift to have! Curious people learn and retain information better. It is also one of the hallmarks of creative thinkers, implying the ability to creatively look beyond the present and imagine possible futures for yourself by coming up with out-of-the-box insights and ideas.

Curiosity also brings with it a greater capacity for personal development, resulting in an individual who is open to other’s point of view.

In your case, this Xin Metal (辛) Resource Element also gives you, the Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster Day Master, your single-minded ability to focus on the task at hand. It gives you the ability to drill a problem down to its core so that you can resolve it once and for all.


The relationship of the Xin Metal (辛) producing the Gui Water (癸) Day Master may also possibly manifest as a fickle personality. Yes, you have a talent for razor-sharp focus. The problem is, that focus can switch at a moment’s notice. In other words, watch out for that ‘SOS’ – Shiny Object Syndrome.

This SOS Syndrome is usually triggered when you become frustrated or when things are not going your way. While there is nothing really wrong with being fickle, giving in to this trait too often may derail you from your objectives.

The Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster’s biggest lesson in life is to learn how to overcome obstacles and challenges. It is only through adversity that the true potential of the Gui You will shine forth.


The Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster Day Master can present as a naïve and carefree individual. Externally, like the slow-moving stream, you like to slow things down and savour every moment that life has to offer.

Again, there is nothing wrong with wanting a slow-paced lifestyle. However, we now live in a society that venerates the fast-mover, the go-getter, the hard-worker. So what I’m trying to say is that, you risk being labelled as ‘lazy’ for no apparent reason.

The purpose of this segment is just to create awareness of the fact that people may label you as laid-back. If this is not a problem for you, then let’s just leave things as they are.


Today’s society may look down on those who are laid back, but it puts a premium on the unconventional maverick. Because the Gui You (癸酉) or Water Rooster Day Master is such a curious individual, it is inevitable that you will have a store of amazing ideas that can literally change the world. Share those ideas publicly. Display your mental potential. Be known as a powerhouse for ideas. As a creative thinker! This would be a great way to use all the strengths and perceived vulnerabilities of the Gui You pillar.

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 pillar.
