#39 REN YIN (壬寅): THE GIFT OF SELF-IMPROVEMENT

Remember the Ren Chen pillar (壬辰) pillar with its poetic name ‘Ren Saddling The Dragon’s Back’? Well, it’s time to meet the ‘Ren Saddling The Tiger’s Back’ – the Ren Yin (壬寅).

Think of a river, winding its way through a dense and dark jungle. Think the Amazon river and you would be on the right track. Think of how this river flows in a strong yet controlled manner, but always heading in one direction. Come hell or high water, this river is intent upon reaching the sea! This river will flow over any obstacles, rush headlong down any heights, break down any barriers, as long as it meets its objective. That’s how strong the Ren Yin can be.

Maximizing The Ren Yin (壬寅): The Gift of Self-Improvement

In Bazi, we like it when the Qi produces each other in a single pillar. We can see this phenomenon clearly in the Ren Yin where the Ren Day Stem produces the Jia Wood Eating God in the Branch which then fuels the Bing Fire Indirect Wealth that eventually creates the Wu Earth 7 Killings. In classical Bazi, this is an indicator of potential wealth and prosperity.

You, the Ren Day Master, sits on a Jia Wood Eating God. For a Jia Wood to be useful, it needs to be chopped by Metal which represents Resource for the Ren Day Master. In other words, the Ren Yin’s ability to think-out-of-the-box comes from solid facts and data. That is why the Ren Yin always thirsts for knowledge.

This knowledge, represented by Metal, is the missing link to support the Ren Day Master as it continuously produces the Eating God, Indirect Wealth and 7 Killings in the Branch. This ‘missing’ Metal is also the reason why you can be such a tough task master towards yourself. At times, you may find it difficult to feel contentment in your achievements. You always want to do better. As such, it is normal to have a Ren Yin continuously striving towards self-improvement.

But before I have you thinking of the Ren Yin as a self-flagellating, self-punishing weirdo… luckily, we have the very useful and optimistic Bing Fire Indirect Wealth to bring some warmth and happiness. The nature of the Bing Fire is routine-driven. It has persistency. Here in the Ren Yin, it represents the ability to bounce back from setbacks, just like how the sun always rises after it sets.

Finally, the Wu Earth 7 Killings star brings stability, pragmatism and objectivity to the Ren Yin Day Master. This is a solid base which endows the Ren Yin with its risk-assessment capacities and its ability to confront and embrace new challenges and adventures.  

If the Ren Yin sounds amazing so far, that’s because it truly is! Now, if only I can convince the Ren Yin to accept that fact. If there is one weakness in this pillar, it is this tendency towards feelings of inadequacy and self-criticism. Again, we come back to that ‘missing’ Metal link.

Luckily, you don’t need to actually have Metal in your Bazi Chart to develop a love for life-long learning. Being aware of this need, and subsequently, ensuring that learning becomes a part of your day’s routine, is good enough. Pick up new skills every year! Hone your observational skill!. Just 1% improvement every day, and by the end of a year’s worth of intentional learning, you would have made progress.

So give yourself a break, Ren Yin. There’s no need to be so hard on yourself. You’re further along than you think.

Where is the Ren Yin (壬寅)

You, The Wise Counsel: Ren Yin (壬寅) In the Year Pillar

The Ren Water is the star of connectivity. Here in the Year Pillar, it allows you to connect with people of all types and stripes. Additionally, Ren Water represents wisdom.

Along with the progressive leanings of the Jia Wood, the optimistic rays of the Bing Fire as well as the ability to generate trust from the Wu Earth, this pillar literally projects an outward persona of intelligence and charisma.

Your friends and social circle will know you as someone who is resourceful, knowledgeable and objective – the best counsel for those in need of advice.

Pragmatic: Ren Yin (壬寅) In the Month Pillar and Hour Pillar

Are you a pragmatic or idealistic leader? I think that the Ren Yin will lean towards the pragmatic category, more interested in solid achievements as opposed to lofty dreams.

Here in the Month Pillar, this Ren stem will have strong views, but weakly held. No, I’m not calling the Ren Yin a wishy-washy pillar! Far from it! This can be a strength, representing the ability to change your opinion or position without feeling any unnecessary ego-bruising that will get in the way.

Your opinion may change, but you can also use the tenacity of the Jia Wood to double down on your strengths instead of wasting time on perceived weaknesses. The optimism of the Bing Fire will also lend crucial support in this process. Conscious use of this Bing Fire refers to the Bing’s ability to treat failure as feedback, instead of fatal! And finally, again, we come back to the Wu Earth’s stability to help you assess and manage risk.

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.

#38 XIN CHOU (辛丑): THE GIFT OF SELF-RELIANCE

We all know what gold looks like. But how many of us have seen gold in its raw form? This unpolished rare metal in its original form, newly excavated from the ground. A diamond in the rough. This… is the Xin Chou (辛丑), which brings the gift of self-reliance.

Maximizing The Xin Chou (辛丑): The Gift of Self-Reliance

Wouldn’t you agree that, to the untrained eye, gold in its original form will seem no different from any other piece of rock? So, grab a loupe! Let’s take a closer look.

Parked under this Xin Metal Day Master is a resourceful Ji Earth Indirect Resource Star which produces the Xin Metal, that in turn attracts the Gui Water Eating God star. What does this mean? The Ji Earth brings intuition and signals that resource is abundant in your life. The Xin Metal Friend star radiates inner confidence and self-worth, while the Gui Water bequeaths imagination and creativity.

But before we continue unpacking the Xin Chou Day Master, let’s get something straight. Self-reliance is not about doing everything yourself. It’s not about shouldering every hardship that comes your way. This, after all, is a Xin Metal Day Master we are talking about here. Instead, it is about inherent self-worth, self-expression and most importantly, self-acceptance.

For all its precise, detailed and rather nit-picky tendencies, a strong and grounded Xin Metal knows the difference between what’s attainable and what’s out of reach. Raw gold knows its own worth. It doesn’t care if the untrained eye recognizes it or not. This sense of self-acceptance is the one thing that differs the Xin Chou from all the other Xin variants.

So how should we maximize the Xin Chou and become even more self-reliant? I have a few of suggestions.

Learn To Be Observant

Crafting and carving raw gold into a thing of beauty that is universally admired requires time, effort, precision, and yes, discipline. One wrong move could shatter the ore and ruin the value of the precious metal. But in the hands of an expert craftsman, the Xin Metal’s inner glow becomes apparent for all to see. But before the craftsman begins to wield his tools, the first thing he does… is observe. He look at the natural contours of the metal, its inherent shape and feels its potential.

This level of observation can be learnt, especially if you are a Xin Chou Day Master. It’s about learning to trust your intuition with regards to the people that come your way, learning to pick up non-verbal cues to discern who will have a positive impact in your life and vice versa.

This skill is particularly important for the Xin Chou, which leads us to the second suggestion…

Surround Yourself With The Right Friends

They say that only a diamond can cut another diamond. The Xin Chou Day Master is nothing if not loyal. But this highly admirable trait can become an Achilles’ heel. You may find yourself pouring too much energy into unhealthy situations which could exacerbate the natural self-critical side of the Xin Metal.

Therefore, surrounding yourself with the friends who contribute positively to your self-esteem will greatly enhance your ability to be self-reliant.

And Finally, Learn The Rewards Of Mental Discipline

Into each life, a little rain must fall. For each Metal Day Master, a little Fire is needed to mould and shape. With resource so easily available to the Xin Chou Day Master, learning the rewards of mental discipline will help maximize the use of the resources at hand.

Discipline is like a muscle. It can be trained. But again, don’t get me wrong. This is not about being hard on yourself. It’s not about forcing yourself to work crazy hours. In this case, it is about learning to see the big picture and exercise restraint in adversity. In other words, it’s about tampering the overcritical and impatient side of the Xin Metal

Where is the Xin Chou (辛丑)

Magnetize Opportunities: Xin Chou (辛丑) In the Year Pillar

Let’s not beat around the bush here. The Xin Chou can literally bedazzle with outward self-confidence. The Xin Chou pillar really does love meeting new people. Don’t forget, the Xin Metal is also a networking star.

With the Xin Chou in your Year Pillar, you can attract or magnetize opportunities to come your way simply by allowing the Xin Metal to shine. Is that sentence too abstract for you? Let me refine it a little.

A simple way to explain the concept of magnetizing opportunities is the act of creating a unique and meaningful brand for yourself that can be leveraged into progressive opportunities. It’s about becoming a go-to expert on a topic that fires your passion and then creating a narrowly focused online and offline presence around your area of expertise. When you do this, you will be using the Xin Chou to its fullest potential.

Leveraging Off Your Leadership Skills: Xin Chou (辛丑) In the Month Pillar

Using the Xin Chou in the Month Pillar is to learn the elusive skill of building a team. The Xin Metal needs a strong team to leverage on, co-workers and partners who can carry out those meticulous plans and details to perfection.

In this case, use the natural people-skills of the Xin Metal to identify the right people who can help you attain your goals, the resourcefulness of the Ji Earth to nurture that team and the adaptability of the Gui Water to maintain harmony within the team.

Be True To Yourself: Xin Chou (辛丑) In the Hour Pillar

Like the chunk of raw gold with its beautiful inner core, the Xin Chou carries a sense of inner purity and innocence that should be protected at all costs. However, the Xin Chou pillar is also propelled by the need to create a special identity that will help it stand out from the crowd. This pillar simply likes to feel that it is special or different.

Nothing wrong with that desire! But when that desire becomes overwhelming, that is when you need to learn the mental discipline to know when enough is finally enough.

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.

#37 GENG ZI (庚子): THE GIFT OF NONCONFORMITY

A sword sheathed in ice. Metal submerged and distorted by water. A symbol of untapped power. This pillar, the Geng Zi (庚子), carries the gift of nonconformity.

Wait, you say… is nonconformity a gift? Of course! If you know how to use it.

Maximizing The Geng Zi (庚子): The Gift of Nonconformity

The Geng Zi (庚子) combines the execution power of the Geng Metal with the shrewdness of the Gui Water Hurting Officer. Another way to look at this pillar is to visualize the Geng Metal as a sharp mind and a pragmatic approach to life and the Gui Water as a deep sense of curiosity. Either way, this combination of Ying and Yang in one pillar can result in a rather perplexing combination of traits – stubborn and irritable but also generous and soft-hearted. In other words, the Geng Zi personality is one that can be rather difficult to decode. Hence, the reputation as an eccentric nonconformist.

What’s A Nonconformist?

According to psychologist Dr. David Weeks, these five traits are present in every eccentric person. Let’s see how these five traits stack up against the natural attributes of the Geng Zi.

  1. Nonconfirming attitude – Check! Seated on its own Hurting Officer, the Geng Zi will naturally be vocal and rebellious against the norms.
  2. Highly motivated by curiosity – Check! Again, the Gui Water is nothing but infinitely curious.
  3. Creative – Check! The Hurting Officer, being an output star, brings the creativity to this equation
  4. Idealistic – Check! Idealism is the corner stone of the two output stars Eating God and Hurting Officer
  5. Opinionated and outspoken – Check! Hurting Officer, anybody?

So it’s now obvious that the Gui Water Hurting Officer brings a lot of the non-contrarian attitudes to the Geng Zi. But have no doubt, that at the end of the day, a Geng Metal is still a Geng Metal. This is an element of toughness. It is naturally ambitious and has the innate willpower to become energized instead of being deterred by setbacks and road blocks.

Pros and Cons of Being A Nonconformist

There are, of course, pros and cons to nonconformity. First let’s examine the advantage. Psychiatric studies have found that eccentrics or nonconfirmists tend to be happier individuals. The logic is that, when you no longer march to the beat of other drums, when you don’t measure yourself against the yardstick of others, the person is naturally happier in himself or herself.

The price of nonconformity, however, will be the loss of security and social acceptance. If this price is too high for the Geng Zi Day Master, a good way to ‘unleash’ the power of the Geng Metal is to learn self-discipline and the willpower to take action. You see, the Hurting Officer can be a bit of an all-talk-no-action type of star. The Geng Zi is at its best when they are fired up with motivation. The basis of this suggestion is to use focus and direction to further hone the natural talents of the Geng Zi on their goals instead of wasting their potential on rectifying petty obstacles. In other words, learn to change what you can, let go of situations that you cannot alter.

But as I said earlier, this is merely a suggestion. It is to be deployed only if you, the Geng Zi Day Master, feel that there is a need to enhance your power. To me, there is no harm in being a nonconformist. As long as your eccentricity doesn’t hurt anyone else, a bit of nonconformity, when used deliberately, can signal a strong self-confidence and greater competence.

Remember when Mark Zuckerberg wore a hoodie to meet investors before Facebook’s first public offering? How’s that for positive nonconformity?

Of course, whenever a Day Master sits on its own Hurting Officer, the classic texts will have plenty to say about this scenario… most of them negative especially when it comes to the marital happiness of a female Geng Zi Day Master. But let’s not forget that these classics are written on the background of a society that is deeply infused by Confucianism. Today, society’s acceptance and admiration for eccentrics have changed for the better.

So you’re a tad bit eccentric. So what?

Where is the Geng Zi (庚子)

The Centre of Attention: Geng Zi (庚子) In the Year Pillar

The Geng Zi in itself can be quite a vocal pillar. The Zi (or Rat, if you prefer), is a Peach Blossom star. When the Geng Zi drops into the Year Pillar, it brings a youthful likeability with a flair of the dramatic to the chart.

Nonconformity At Work: Geng Zi (庚子) In the Month Pillar

A nonconformist at work is someone who contributes tremendous value by refusing to accept the status quo and staying in the comfort zone. Driven by the curiosity of the Gui Water, the Geng Zi pillar asks questions, explores, discovers and innovates. Supported by the toughness of the Geng Metal, the Geng Zi, again when fired up, has the power to raise the bar and reshape the world.

Emotional and Impulsive: Geng Zi (庚子) In the Hour Pillar

Embracing spirituality and philosophy is a good way to help the Geng Zi pillar gain the inner stability and focus it needs when the emotions become overbearing. This suggestion counters the dark side of the Geng Zi pillar which may struggle a lot with the emotional side of things.

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.

#36 JI HAI (己亥): THE GIFT OF PLANNING

Externally, the Ji Hai (己亥) presents as a very idyllic picture – endless waves, lapping gently against the golden sands; coconut trees swaying elegantly in the breeze. Picturesque, isn’t it?  But did you know, that beneath that romantic exterior lies a very capable Day Master with the gift of planning?

Care to know more? Read on…

Maximizing The Ji Hai (己亥): The Gift of Planning

The Ji Hai Day Master is certainly blessed with a potent combination of both beauty and brains. Like the beautiful picture that the pillar presents, you, the Ji Hai Day Master possess mesmerizing beauty along with a warm and exuberant personality. Looking at the picture alone, you would most likely think that the Ji Hai Day Master is one who is good-natured, easy-going, someone who goes with the flow, maybe even a little lackadaisal.

To a point, you would be right. However, never discount the fact that this nurturing and compassionate Ji Earth sits on an innovative and forceful Ren Water Direct Wealth star along with the ambitions of the Jia Wood Direct Officer star.

This Ren Water Direct Wealth star, especially, holds the most influence when it comes to the planning skills of the Ji Hai. After all, the Direct Wealth is the star of planning and execution.

Planning skills is one of the cornerstones for success. And here’s the rub. Not everyone does it naturally like the Ji Hai. Many of us are visionary big thinkers. The Ji Hai, on the other hand, makes big plans and turns those grand schemes into smaller rational and realistic steps – all thanks to the Ren Water Direct Wealth that you sit on.

Along with the planning skills, comes the natural resourcefulness of the Ji Earth. All Ji Earth Day Masters are naturally resourceful. But in the case of the Ji Hai, this trait is amplified by the Ren Water Direct Wealth which also represents the ability to connect with people from all walks of life.

This planning ability is never more apparent than when the Ji Hai Day Master is working to achieve balance in your life. Be it work-life balance, or balance in relationships, this is something that is particularly important to the Ji Hai.

Why? Let’s think on this for a second. The golden sand of the beach is constantly in danger of being eroded by the sea. Because the Direct Wealth is such a task-focused star, when the Ren Water overwhelms, or rather, when the plan goes awry, you tend to create a negative impression due to your sharp-shooter way of talking.

Therefore, the key to making the best of the Ji Hai pillar is to use the Jia Wood Direct Officer star to  create stability in the pillar. In Bazi, when we say that you should use your Direct Officer star, what we mean is to consciously apply or adopt the characteristics of that particular profile.

In this case, it means learning to use diplomacy and social skills in your daily life. The Direct Officer star also means going by the book, being law-abiding, and aiming for steady and conservative growth like the Jia Wood itself.

An Interesting Side Note: Songbird

Here’s an interesting side note about the Ji Hai. This pillar comes hand-in-hand with a beautiful singing voice. Do you know a singer named Celine Dion? If you don’t, please Google her. Or better yet, YouTube her. Listen to that soulful, gut-wrenching and emotive voice. Ladies and gentlemen, turn on the spotlights, I present to you… the Ji Hai Day Master!

Where is the Ji Hai (己亥)

An Honourable Reputation: Ji Hai (己亥) In the Year Pillar

Generous, confident and honourable, your personal brand is that of someone who is steady and even-tempered. Aside from resourcefulness, the Ji Hai pillar holds a great deal of integrity. So you start off on the right footing as the first impression you give is of someone who is trustworthy.

On the flip side, the Ji Hai pillar has a tendency to try to be everything for everyone. As long as you are aware of this trait, it can be kept under control.

Stable Yet Flexible: Ji Hai (己亥) In the Month Pillar

Remember what I said earlier about the Ji Hai’s emphasis on stability? This pillar tends to strive for a stable lifestyle and is usually drawn towards steadier methods to earn a living. There is certainly nothing wrong with this preference. However, do be mindful not to take on a job that is beneath your true potential just for the sake of security alone.

The Ji Hai is also a very flexible pillar. While some prefer to work independently and others like to work in a team, the Ji Hai can work both ways by using either the absorbent nature of the Ji Earth or the independence brought by the Ren Water.

Academically Driven: Ji Hai (己亥) In the Hour Pillar

In my previous post about the Wu Xu (戊戌), I wrote about how that pillar loves to hoard information. The Ji Hai is also academically driven but with a glaring difference. Unlike the Wu Xu whose knowledge has to be teased out of it, the Ji Hai is able to take in knowledge and turn it into growth.

Focus is the key to use this pillar effectively. Allowing the thirst for knowledge to run rampant will be counter-productive as it will spread your energies too thin.

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.

#35 WU XU (戊戌): THE GIFT OF STRAIGHTFORWARDNESS

What happens when you stack two mountains on top of each other? It calls to mind someone well-grounded, stable, and determined. That’s exactly the image that the Wu Xu (戊戌) pillar creates. The classical texts describe the Wu Xu as an edgy and rocky mineral mountain, tough on the outside, passionate on the inside.

It sounds unattractive, I know. But there is a stark beauty in the Wu Xu.

Maximizing The Wu Xu (戊戌): The Gift of Straightforwardness

As one of the four Fui Gong pillars, the Wu Xu is just as tough and hardy as any one of the other three. It’s one stand-out characteristic? Straightforwardness.

Let’s think about this for a second. If we were to describe the Wu Xu as a dormant volcano, what comes to mind is a hard-surfaced mineral mountain dotted with craters. This same edgy look creates a Day Master who is just as edgy and straightforward.

In the eyes of the Wu Xu, telling truth to power is the best way to deal with any situation. Beating around the bush is merely a waste of precious time and resources. Being the hardy person that they are, they honestly believe that coddling is bad for your health and tough love is the only love that matters. The Wu Xu will never be the person who lives in denial.

But remember, the truth may be powerful, but it can also be painful. For the Wu Xu Day Master, your biggest challenge is learning to tell the truth in a way that is more acceptable to your audience. There is real power in demonstrating a willingness to listen to an opposing point-of-view.

Additionally, when you put two mountains together into a single pillar, their first instinct will be to hoard information. The Wu Xu will have the tendency to dole out information piece by piece on a need-to-know basis. The problem here, though, is that it often creates an aloof exterior where trust is hard to come by. Because people sense that you are holding back! That you are being reticent on purpose.

This is something that the Wu Xu Day Master must always be aware of. Whether or not you intend to ‘fix’ this aloof persona, is up to you. By now, surely you would have figured out a way to make the aloofness work for you.

But beneath that steely exterior…

… lies a soft inner core that the Wu Xu would protect at all costs. The Wu Xu is intuitive by nature and as a result, can be rather sensitive to criticism. The best way around this is for the Wu Xu Day Master to develop a more rational perspective and cultivate a deep inner faith in your abilities.

And there are abilities aplenty in the Wu Xu. Seated on its own Direct Resource, Friend and Hurting Officer stars, this Day Master is ably supported by the drive of its Ding Fire Direct Resource Star, the practical determination of its Wu Earth Friend Star, and the subtle magnetism conveyed by its Xin Metal Hurting Officer star.

In other words, the Wu Xu Day Master has all the ingredients for success within your own grasp. But here’s the thing though, life is frequently less easy or smooth sailing for someone with so much abilities. What was that famous line from Spider Man? With great power comes greater responsibilities.

Such is the journey for the Wu Xu. A life full of challenges that only you can tame. In Bazi consults, when we see a Fui Gong pillar like the Wu Xu, we know that this person is destined for great achievements. All you need to do, is cast away those self-doubts.

Where is the Wu Xu (戊戌)

The Steady Core Of A Community: Wu Xu (戊戌) In the Year Pillar

For all your aloofness, the Wu Xu Day Master values harmony and is often found to be natural mediators and peacemakers. In other words, the Wu Xu is happiest when it can be the steady core of a community.

Wu Xu in the Year Pillar can often be interpreted as a someone with a towering reputation. This pillar is naturally drawn to those who also project power and determination.

Easy Jobs Are Boring: Wu Xu (戊戌) In the Month Pillar

The tough jobs are yours, Wu Xu. Because easy ones are just too boring for you. In the month pillar, the Wu Xu brings its boundless determination, logical thinking, execution abilities and drive for continuous improvement into your career palace.

What the Wu Xu pillar needs most however, is a career that will push their imagination to the limit and beyond.

The Wu Xu has a natural flair for leadership. For all its toughness and straightforwardness, this pillar likes working in a congenial atmosphere and will have little patience dealing with pettiness and power plays. Instead, give the Wu Xu a genial environment where positive competition is encouraged and watch them work their way up into positions of power.

Uninhibited Ambitions: Wu Xu (戊戌) In the Hour Pillar

Like the towering mountain it represents, one of the Wu Xu pillar’s gift is that of ambition. This pillar naturally wants to achieve something substantial.

The Wu Xu likes knowledge. To be more specific, the Wu Xu likes to hoard knowledge. To make this pillar really shine, shift to an abundance mindset where you focus on the good things you have at your disposal. This abundance mindset will make it easier for you to create bigger goals and the freedom to allow yourself to try new things.

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.

#34 DING YOU (丁酉): THE GIFT OF PERSPECTIVE

The Ding You (丁酉) calls up images of the glow of candle light reflected off the smooth surface of the mirror. A little like the Bing Shen in the previous post, but this light is gentler and more calming. A fierce ray of sunshine may cause you to flinch and shade your eyes. But the reflected light of the candle is mesmerizing and captivating – a tell tale sign for a positive, attractive and exuberant personality.

Maximizing The Ding You (丁酉): The Gift of Perspective

While the reflected sunlight of the Bing Shen represents a powerful sense of purpose, when translated to its Yin counterpart, this image of the reflected candlelight signifies the Ding You Day Master’s ability to view things from new perspectives.

This is a rare and valuable gift that magnifies the Ding Fire’s natural ability to inspire, influence, motivate and enlighten. Because true inspiration and motivation can only happen when you are able to walk a mile in the other person’s shoes, when they are convinced that you speak their language and truly appreciate the situation they are in.

But make no mistake, there is nothing reticent about the Ding You. Bright Ding Fire sitting on the shiny Xin Metal results in a Day Master that loves the limelight and revels in being centre stage. This is an incredibly charismatic Day Master who exudes irresistible charm and enthusiastic confidence.

This innate gift of perspectives is the foundation of the Ding You’s innovative can-do attitude. Because of your natural ability to look at obstacles and setbacks from different angles, it’s a rare day when the Ding You Day Master is defeated when things don’t go according to script.

However, this does not mean that the Ding You will continue ploughing on when things get tough. Seated on its own Indirect Wealth, the Ding You is far-sighted enough to abandon a struggling in favour of developing dynamic new methods to attack the problem from a brand new angle.

The Ding You pillar sits on the Rooster which by itself is a nobleman star. Additionally, the Rooster, being of the Metal element, is directly related to monetary concerns. When we put these two concepts together, it means that the Ding You will never lack for financial nobleman in their lives.

But here comes the irony. The opposing forces represented by the Ding Fire and Xin Metal gives rise to a rather prominent streak of rebelliousness and fierce independence in the Ding You pillar. On the plus column, this means that the Ding You Day Master is one who prefers to always be in control and will accept responsibility for their own action. While retaining control is certainly an advantage, why make life more difficult than it has to be?

So here’s the most important message to the Ding You Day Master. When you learn to recognize (and accept) genuine support when it comes your way, that is when the Day Master will truly shine.

Where is the Ding You (丁酉)

The Restless Idealist: Ding You (丁酉) In the Year Pillar

For all its sociable traits, the Ding You can be a rather difficult pillar to analyze. Like the candle reflected in a mirror, what you project on the surface may not be what you truly are.

No doubt, this pillar in the Year Pillar is infinitely attractive. But there is a fickle and restless quality that represents an idealist who is constantly chasing after new experiences.

Instead of viewing this as a disadvantage, use the natural inclination of the Ding You to learn new perspectives and open new doors by expanding your circle. After all, they’re already flocking to you like moths to a candle.

New Breakthroughs: Ding You (丁酉) In the Month Pillar

Again, thanks to its ability to view things from a different perspective, the Ding You pillar has the ability to link myriad concepts and ideas to achieve new breakthroughs and insights. This is the true genius of this pillar.

For this ability to shine forth, however, the Ding You must not be constrained. After all, this is an independent pillar that balks at restrictions and will rebel from too much authority.

Once given the room it needs to flex its creative muscle, you would be surprised to find that the Ding You can achieve tremendous feats of laser-like concentration and endurance.

Glamorous Lifestyle: Ding You (丁酉) In the Hour Pillar

What can you expect when you combine the Ding and You into a single pillar? Style and beauty, of course! The Ding You has a natural attraction for the glamorous lifestyle. But while the Ding You may have sophisticated tastes, it is nothing but straightforward when it comes to its needs and desires.

The Ding You is never shy about communicating its wants. Forthright and decisive, this is a pillar that knows exactly what it wants and how to get it.

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.

#33 BING SHEN (丙申): THE GIFT OF PURPOSE

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.

#32 YI WEI (乙未): THE GIFT OF SHREWDNESS

The Yi Wei (乙未) is akin to a plant growing on dry earth. No, not merely growing, but thriving! Yes, something like a cactus. Hey! Cacti can be pretty too, you know. Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it!

Maximizing The Yi Wei (乙未): The Gift of Shrewdness

Let’s take a closer look at this unique plant that thrives in the harshest of environments. While all Yi Wood are survivors by nature, the Yi Wei manifests that trait most of all. Its roots run deep, able to tap into and make full use of every scrap of resource. This is where the shrewdness of the Yi Wei comes from. It reflects a person who can dig deep and and make the most of any situation.

Like all Yi Wood Day Masters, the Yi Wei is instinctively a good networker. But the harsh environment in which the cactus grows has taught it to grow thorns as a self-defense mechanism.

What this means is that you, the Yi Wei Day Master, will have the tendency to pick and choose your friends. The Yi Wei is already a natural quick judge of character. Basically, unlike other Yi Wood Day Masters, you’re just not that into needless entanglements and competition. Every person you bring into your personal space, is someone you already deem worthy and capable of helping you attain your goals.

As such, the Yi Wei Day Master can come off as a bit of a loner, someone who prefers independence and solitude. Remember those sharp thorns? In most circumstances, you prefer to develop your own mind and intuition independently from others.

But we’re talking about maximizing the shrewdness of the Yi Wei pillar. Here are xx ways:

  1. Ask open-ended questions that encourage people to reveal more about themselves.
  2. Practice more active listening as opposed to active talking. This should be something that will come easy to the Yi Wei Day Master.
  3. Learn about human cognitive biases – others and your own!
  4. Complement your instinctive ability to judge characters by learning to read body language.
  5. Learn to separate reason from emotion.

The last point of the list above is perhaps the most important for the Yi Wei who needs to learn to control your responses to external circumstances that are out of your control. In other words, learn to tell the difference between what you can and cannot change. You see, for all its stillness, the Yi Wei pillar has a bit of an emotional roller coaster deep inside. Unseen by others, you could easily go from the heights of ecstasy to the depths of despair. The biggest challenge to the Yi Wei is to learn to control this tendency for self-torment.

When that happens, I hope you remind yourself that you have the endurance it takes to persevere through the roughest sandstorms. All you need to do, is to hunker down, conserve your resources and wait for the opportunity to ripen again. After all, a cactus only blooms after the rain.

Where is the Yi Wei (乙未):

Shrewdness Is Not Rudeness: Yi Wei (乙未) in the Year Pillar

Shrewdness has a bad rep in today’s society. It implies dishonesty, cunning or deceit. So let’s give this another name. How about sagaciousness? Or far-sightedness?

When the Yi Wei rules your personal branding pillar (the Year Pillar is how the world sees you, after all), let’s make this reputation for shrewdness work for you.

This is where you display your sharp power of judgement and clever use of resources in a practical manner. Practicality is the keyword here. To create a public persona that is pragmatic with a thorough comprehension of what makes people tick and how the world really works.

Shrewdness At Work: Month Pillar

Because the Yi Wei pillar tends to be a bit of a solitary creature, a business or career that allows a high degree of autonomy works best when the Yi Wei is in the month pillar.

With the Yi Wei in the Month Pillar, the shrewdness of this pillar can best be used to separate the wheat from the chaff – leaving only high quality contacts in your operating network. At the same time, you have the resourcefulness of the Ji Earth at your disposal to always find alternatives and the motivational skills of the Ding Fire to enhance your leadership skills.

Tenacious, not stubborn: Hour Pillar

In the hour pillar, the perseverance, resilience, persistence and sheer perseverance of the Yi Wei creates a tenacious mindset that will drive the Day Master to extraordinary heights. But note, the key word is tenacity, not stubbornness. There is a big difference between the two. Stubbornness is about not wanting to change your position or mind about something. Tenacity is driven by the determination to achieve your goal.

A tenacious mindset can be a valuable factor in your success in life. Determination does not come naturally for some folks. Learning the difference between stubbornness and tenacity and the strengths of the Yi Wei pillar will help you ground your work with purpose and thus, reframe setbacks and find ways to navigate around the roadblocks along the way.

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.

#31 JIA WU (甲午): THE GIFT OF AMBITION

A tall, sturdy tree at the height of summer, planted on hot dry ground. A single spark could potentially set off a catastrophic forest fire. The Jia Wu (甲午) is the very picture of an all-consuming ambition.

Maximizing The Jia Wu (甲午): The Gift of Ambition

Once again, it’s time to write about another Jia Wood (甲) pillar. Shall we take another stroll through the woods, together? This time, it’s summer. The ground is dry, pleasant to walk on. We are surrounded by towering trees, their shade offering relief from the burning sun. Sunlight filters through the branches in shafts of gold and green.

Like all Jias, the Jia Wu is also supportive, protective and benevolent. As all Jias, this too has a deep-rooted instinct to reach for the skies. However, this Jia sits on a flammable Ding Fire (丁) which represents its Hurting Officer star, making the Jia Wu, a maverick among the Jia Pillars. This Ding Fire Hurting Officer lends brilliance to the Jia Wu, endowing it with originality and showmanship.

But the Jia Wu is not all show and no substance. This Jia is grounded in its Ji Earth (己) Direct Wealth star, giving the Jia Wu the industrious perseverance it needs to handle the hard work.

So let’s take the ambition of the Jia Wood, pair it with the showmanship and willingness to challenge the status quo of the Ding Fire Hurting Officer, along with the resourcefulness and hard working nature of the Ji Earth, and we end up with the picture of an all-consuming ambition that drives the Jia Wu Day Master to accomplish great things.

This is someone who will never bow down to life’s challenges. There is a strong willpower and determination here to take charge of their destiny. Always, there is this drive to be more, know more, do more, give more.   

Which is a good thing. Because well-aimed ambition, grounded by strong values will create an individual who vibrates at a higher level and gives you the motivation to keep running around and past the obstacles that come your way.

But beware of the burnout.

Of all pillars, the Jia Wu is the most susceptible to burnout. Think of a raging forest fire and the scorched earth it leaves behind. That might very well happen to the Jia Wu. When the Fire gets too strong, the Jia Wu Day Master will try to take on too much, spread itself too thin, and end up disillusioned and exhausted. The challenge here is for the Jia Wu Day Master to learn to direct its passion and ambition and strike a balance that is aimed at sustainability.  

Where is the Jia Wu (甲午):

Brilliant Individualism: Jia Wu (甲午) In the Year Pillar

The maverick Jia Wu carries with it a strong sense of individualism. Its brilliance makes this a difficult pillar to ignore. However, because this Jia sits on the Death Position in the 12 Growth Phases, there may be an indication of emotional instability especially when a self-punishment formation is formed. Therefore, you need to be aware of the Jia Wu pillar’s propensity to come off as having a dual personality, sometimes compassionate, sometimes domineering.

Individualism At Work: Jia Wu (甲午) In the Month Pillar

The individualistic nature of the Jia Wu pillar is most apparent in the Month Pillar. No doubt, this is a high-performing pillar but it requires a work environment that allows it to work in its own unique way. The Jia Wu’s love for freedom as well as its dislike for taking orders require a workplace or career that embraces individualism versus collectivism.

Eccentric You: Jia Wu (甲午) In the Hour Pillar

For all its intensity, there is a delightful eccentricity in the Jia Wu pillar, especially when found in the Hour. The Jia Wu in the Hour brings a unique and open-minded perspective of the world, along with progressive ideas that range far ahead of your time. Here, the Jia Wu’s gift is the talent to pull together information and knowledge from a myriad of sources and then communicate those ideas in a unique and fresh manner.    

The presence of the Ding Fire also represents a strong interest in spirituality in the Jia Wu. However, when the Jia Wu is found in the Hour Pillar, this talent may surface later on 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.

#30 GUI SI (癸巳): THE GIFT OF COLLABORATION

What happens when you place water into an iron receptacle, put a big fire underneath and then channel the resulting vapour? You get to harness the power of steam! That, my friend, is exactly what the Gui Si (癸巳) pillar is all about – the power of steam.

Maximizing The Gui Si (癸巳): The Gift of Collaboration

The Gui Si is perhaps the most driven, hardworking and noble among the six Gui pillars. Seated on its own Direct Wealth, Direct Officer, and Direct Resource stars, the Gui Si can easily tap on the Wealth-Officer-Seal structure that brings blessings of nobility and success.

The key to making the Gui Si pillar work is to give it direction and purpose. Like the steam in our example, when harnessed properly, it can move a train! But without that direction, the steam scatters into the air and disperses into nothing. This means that, when inspired and committed to a strong purpose, the Gui Si pillar can literally move mountains.

But how does the weak Gui water move a mountain? The answer lies in the crux of the Gui Si pillar, which is the gift of collaboration.

Allow me to elaborate.

In the study of Bazi, the Gui Water is deemed as the weakest of the 10 stems. They abhor tough situations. When things get too hot, the Gui Water has been known to scatter, returning only when things cool down. Some may say that the Gui Water is lazy.

I beg to differ.

Seated on its own Direct Wealth, the Gui Si, will certainly put in its fair share of work. But being the smartest worker of them all, why bother doing something yourself when you can get others to do it for you?

Remember, the Gui Si is seated on its own Resource star, which means that you will always have access to Noble People in your life to aid and support your goals.

Finally, the Direct Officer star comes in to give the Gui Si its much-needed direction to move mountains. Being a highly noble pillar, the Gui Si is not triggered by mere financial achievements alone. In fact, the Gui Si will always worry about money, even when they have plenty of money in the bank. What really drives a Gui Si, is recognition.

Given the three factors above – the ability to work hard, the presence of Noble People, and a thirst for recognition – we circle back to the gift of collaboration that comes automatically to the Gui Si pillar. It’s the gift of not only connecting with people from all walks of life, but to take it one step further by working collaboratively with them. Therefore, the Gui Si’s contact list can be worth its weight in gold.

Here are three easy ways to maximize the gift of collaboration in the Gui Si pillar:
  1. Be open to meeting new people constantly. The Si (巳) by itself is a very active, travelling star. Forcing the Si (巳) pillar to stay still will result in strong inertia that can prove to be quite difficult to overcome. Therefore, put yourself in situations where it is easy and appropriate to introduce yourself to new contacts. Let’s be realistic about friends. Not all friends stay in our lives forever. Not everyone we meet will become our friends. So that contact list must constantly be topped-up.
  2. Commit to a community. Committing yourself, and establishing yourself within a community is a great way for the Gui Si to find new collaborators. As more people are drawn into the community, so does your contact list grow.
  3. Establish yourself as a giver. Be willing to share knowledge, tips and value on a regular basis. Something as simple as sharing a funny story, or a motivational quote via text messaging is enough to let people know that they are in your thoughts. When you do that, you will indirectly position yourself as a subject matter expert which will not only draw more people into your circle, but more importantly, keep them there.

 On a personal note, I have a good friend who happens to be a Gui Si Day Master. She does the above three so naturally, that there are days where I truly envy her for her ability. In our connected world, the ability to bring many people together to work on one objective is a truly powerful talent.

Where is the Gui Si (癸巳):
Know The Type Of Friends You Want In Advance: Gui Si (癸巳) In the Year Pillar

It takes time and effort to make friends. With a bubbly and attractive pillar like the Gui Si in the Year Pillar, it is entirely possible that you draw every Tom, Dick and Harry into your life. Therefore, a little pre-planning would be useful to figure out the type of people you want in your life.

Start by listing a few qualities or interests that you like, as well as the goals and objectives you have in mind. This type of planning will bring clarity to your purpose and save you a lot of time and frustration.

Collaboration At Work: Gui Si (癸巳) In the Month Pillar

The Gui Si in the Month Pillar can take collaboration at work to the next level. Here’s how:

  1. First, leverage on the Gui Water’s inherent ability to subtly influence people.
  2. Use the broadness of the Wu Earth (戊) to get everyone on the same page with regards to the goals and objectives and methodology of the collaboration.
  3. Use the effectiveness of the Geng Metal (庚) to set the tasks and expectations. The Geng Metal, after all, is the best taskmaster known to man!
  4. Finally, bring it all together and online by harnessing the Bing Fire’s (丙) natural love for tech tools.
Taiji and Tianyi Nobleman Stars: Gui Si (癸巳) In the Hour Pillar

For all its practicality, the Gui Si pillar will always have strong leanings towards the spiritual side of life. This interest in spiritual studies is the result of the presence of not just one, but two highly coveted nobleman stars that is to be found within the Gui Si pillar.

If you have been blessed with the Gui Si pillar in your Bazi Chart, know that you sit on the TaiJi and TianYi nobleman stars. What does that mean? It just means that you are naturally endowed with a strong talent for spiritual learnings and divine knowledge.

Given the idealistic nature of the Gui Si pillar, why not use that knowledge to help the many people in your 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.
