In today’s context, we could see the Bing Shen (丙申) pillar as the sun shining off the smooth glassy surface of a skyscraper.

Albert Einstein was a Bing Shen (丙申). Did you know that? In the old texts, the Bing Shen pillar is likened to the sun reflecting off the Kun Lun mountain where its light is reflected off the lake at the base of the mountain. In today’s context, we could see this pillar as the sun shining off the smooth glassy surface of a skyscraper. Double the sun, double the brilliance, double the enthusiasm, double the purpose!

Maximizing The Bing Shen (丙申): The Gift of Purpose

The first thing I want you to know is, this is a Day Master that sits on its own Intelligence Star. Of course, this is not exactly unique. There are other day masters that also sit on their own intelligence star – the Ding You 丁酉, Wu Shen 戊申, Ji You 己酉, Ren Yin 壬寅, and Gui Mao 癸卯. However, in the Bing Shen, this intelligence is more pronounced, completely due to the fact that the sunlight is being reflected. So it’s almost akin to having two suns shining in unison, so bright you need to wear shades. In other words, you can’t help but notice the sheer brilliance of this pillar.

When we have our own Intelligence Stars in our natal charts, what it basically means is that the Day Master is able to quickly grasp concepts and turn them into workable solutions. When a Day Master sits on its own Intelligence Star, this results in a highly intelligent, creative, visionary and witty individual.

The Bing Shen pillar is one that is infused with purpose. From their perspective, time must not be squandered and a life lived without intent and purpose is a life wasted. This self-sustaining and far-sighted Bing Fire literally burns with an inner vitality that brings out its inner creativity.

Idealistic as this creativity may be, the Bing Shen sits on its Geng Metal Indirect Wealth, which brings a strong degree of control and practicality into the picture. This Day Master is literally sitting or controlling its wealth.

Combined, this towering creativity and tough practicality ends with an action-taker who is able to overcome all odds. Yes, you’ve got it right. The Bing Shen is literally, a force to be reckoned with. With all these tools at your disposal, you already know that you are extraordinarily ambitious, multi-talented and determined.

While every pillar comes with a gift, so does it come with a weakness. In the case of the Bing Shen, so overwhelming is the fear of failure that sometimes, it can result in a Day Master who fears taking chances. This fear of failure stems from taking themselves and the world too seriously. Remember? For the Bing Shen, life must be lived with purpose. The solution to this is quite simple, really. Getting wound so tight all the time is not a particularly healthy thing to do. So learn to relax! Things don’t always have to go your way.

Where is the Bing Shen (丙申):

Enthusiasm Overload: Bing Shen (丙申) In the Year Pillar

The Bing Fire, by itself, is already a cheerful and passionate element. With the sunlight reflected in the Bing Shen, this leads to enthusiasm overload. If you have the Bing Shen in your year pillar, you can use this extraordinary enthusiasm and go-getter energy of the Bing Shen to inspire others and literally change lives.

People are inspired by someone who can point out possibilities they may not have considered or thought unattainable. People are also inspired by someone who conveys an optimistic vision of the future that makes sense to them. Of the 10 Heavenly Stems, only the Bing has the pre-requisite to fulfil those requirements.

Extraordinary Focus: Bing Shen (丙申) In the Month Pillar

The Bing Shen pillar loves a good challenge. It loves to sink its teeth into tough projects. The tougher the nut, the more satisfying the crack!

With the Bing Shen in the Month Pillar, you have the capacity to use the amazing powers of concentration that is native to this pillar into your career. Know however, that the Bing Shen can be a law unto itself. Since this pillar abhors taking orders and values creative freedom, running your own business becomes a better option.

The Restless Mind: Bing Shen (丙申) In the Hour Pillar

Because the Shen (申) is a travelling animal, Bing Shen in the Hour Pillar represents a restless mind. Imagine, being so smart that learning comes easy for you. Little wonder that you are always driven to explore new directions.

A Bing Shen anywhere in the chart must have the freedom to explore many avenues before finally landing on the right path. The sooner you go through this process, the better. Because while this process is on-going, there is a strong chance that you may scatter your energies too wide, resulting in a lack of focus. Developing a greater sense of self-discipline will be the key to bringing the Bing Shen pillar the achievement it craves.

Let’s not forget that the Bing Shen brings the gift of purpose. In the case where the Bing Shen is found in the hour, purpose may come later in life. This would be true if you do not understand Bazi. But now that you do, you don’t need to wait for purpose to come your way. Instead, take control of your destiny by actively discovering your purpose early in life.

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.
