Like a mist-covered mountain, the Wu Zi (戊子) pillar is one that is wreathed in mystery.

Like a mist-covered mountain, the Wu Zi (戊子) pillar is one that is wreathed in mystery and enigma.


One of the 6 Elegant Days, the Wu Zi day master is endowed with intelligence and elegance. Much like the Ding Hai pillar before this, here too, the Wu Earth Stem combines with the Gui Water in the Branch. When this combination happens, the outcome brings a strong sense of nobility and refinement to this Day Master.


Wu Zi Bazi
  1. Like all Wu Earth, the Wu Zi is very strong willed. Persistence and perseverance are the hallmark of the Wu Earth Day Masters.
  2. Sitting only on your Direct Wealth Star, the Wu Zi is relentlessly hardworking and a terrific problem solver. This is a highly ambitious pillar grounded with a practical worldview that is driven by knowledge.  In other words, you are someone who is always reliable, hardworking and incredibly practical – a highly efficient team member with natural leadership abilities.

But why did I use the gift of mystery to describe the Wu Zi pillar? Let’s think about this mountain for a minute. The mountain is always there, stolid, steadfast and unchanging. But what’s ever-changing is the ribbons of mist and clouds around it.

Because of the mist, the Wu Zi is a highly secretive individual, less given to speaking your mind. But this sense of enigmatic mystery can work in your favour. It draws people to you and keeps them guessing and intrigued as they glimpse different facets of your Wu Zi personality.

This pillar is usually indicative of a higher power, or likes to play the role of the mastermind, hidden behind the scenes.


But beneath the positive outward appearance, there are some threats that need to be dealt with in this post.

The relative instability of this pillar manifests as a difficulty in controlling your emotions. Wu Zi Day Masters are typically blessed with physical attractiveness. But because you care about the way you are perceived, most Wu Zi Day Masters end up battling low self-esteem issues at some point in their lives.

The other vulnerability would be the strength of emotions within this pillar. Remember, the Wu Zi tends to be rather enigmatic. A very private individual, in fact. This may become a problem because, you are emotionally sensitive, but you have trouble expressing those emotions. Again, because you probably care too much about how others perceive you.


Yet, as it turns out, there are benefits of being enigmatic and mysterious. Who woulda thunk it, right?

The sense of mystery that the Wu Zi exudes, gives you an intimidating presence as a leader. In this case, the sheer unpredictability and contradictory nature of the Wu Zi compels people to pay attention, lest they miss out on what you might do next. 

Strong and independent, the Wu Zi is at its most comfortable around mentally stimulating individuals. You tend to draw smart and creative people into your circle, best if they challenge your intellect.


Learning to stay centered either through spiritual pursuits or self-awareness exercises would help you maintain your equilibrium. Why spiritual pursuits in particular? Because this Wu Earth Day Master is produced by Fire. And Fire represents joy, passion, happiness, spiritual transformation, body-mind-spirit alignment.

So this Fire could be many things to you. It could be yoga, meditation, energy healing, or a host of other different platforms. The key to finding your joy is to find your passion.

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.
