#40 GUI MAO (癸卯)/WATER RABBIT: THE GIFT OF CREATIVITY

This one is so easy to write. With a formation that sits on its own Growth and Nobleman star, along with the Artistic Eating God Formation, what else could the Gui Mao (癸卯) have but the gift of creativity?

GUI MAO (癸卯)/WATER RABBIT: OVERVIEW

Have you ever wandered out into your garden or to a park at sunrise? That magical hour between complete darkness and full sunlight, when the sky is tinged a rosy pink from the early rays of the sun. Look down! See the morning dew glistening on the leaves and flowers? That little drop of water resting gently on the petals is what the Gui Mao pillar represents.

Isn’t it a beautiful image? Just like the morning dew, the Gui Mao Day Master is gentle and just a tiny bit ethereal.

But what lurks beneath this conservative, compassionate and kind persona is what we are really interested in. Because this Artistic Eating God Formation indicates an acute intelligence, extreme clarity of thought, and a Day Master who is unabashedly creative.

But before we talk about making this better, let’s explore the strengths of the Gui Mao pillar.

GUI MAO (癸卯)/WATER RABBIT: STRENGTHS

Gui Water () Day Master

Let’s start with your Gui Water (癸) Day Master. Ethereal, changeable, and mysterious, most Gui Water Day Masters tend to be easy to know, but difficult to comprehend. Think of Gui Water as the clouds – pretty, puffy, white clouds one minute, looming thunderstorms the next! And we have not even met the most mysterious of the Gui Water yet!

This changeability of the Gui Water makes it easy for you to work well with others. But even more importantly, lies a hidden talent that most Gui Water may not be aware of – the ability to subtly change the ideas, beliefs, and emotions of others. This makes the Gui Mao a very astute people-observer.

Yi Wood () Output Star

Your Gui Water Day Master produces your Yi Wood (乙) Output star. In your case, this star represents your eternal quest for knowledge, your active imagination, as well as your idealistic and highly individualistic approach to life.

In fact, one of the stand out characteristics of the Gui Mao Day Master is your openness to knowledge from any source. Constantly exploring, the more you learn, the more creative you become. But more than that, your Gui Water represents emotions and ideas. Your Eating God represents effective thinking.

Put the whole picture together, and you get a Day Master who excels at coming up with fast, effective, spur-of-the-moment, and out-of-the-box solutions. This means, that you are not the type to absorb and regurgitate information. Instead, the more knowledgeable you are, the better you become at creating new ideas or solutions.

Mao () or Rabbit Branch

And then we have your Mao (卯) or Rabbit branch. This is your personal nobleman star. Technically, it is called the Day Noble. When there is nobility in the chart, it typically means that you have access to support from other people. But if you want to take it to the next level, think of it this way – you have the capacity to help others.

But what or how does this nobility pan out? Specifically, in your case as a Gui Mao Day Master, it typically pans out as access to information. Multiple sources of information. The larger your network of information, the easier it is for your Artistic Eating God Formation to create new lines of thinking and solution. Nothing delights the Gui Mao more than the ability to come up with new ideas and new approaches.

GUI MAO (癸卯)/WATER RABBIT: HOW YOU PRESENT

Like all Gui Day Masters, the first impression you give is as someone who is friendly and able to get along with anyone. Likability factor is high, given that this Gui Water Day Master sits on the Mao (卯) Branch which is also a Peach Blossom star.

However, the Gui Mao can seem to be just a little cold or detached. Some might even go as far as to label you a ‘diva’. Here’s why: while the Gui Mao Day Master is friendly, you are also extremely discerning. The Gui Mao pillar does not deal with blind acceptance. In other words, it will not tolerate fools!

GUI MAO (癸卯)/WATER RABBIT: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

Beware the negative thoughts. This will tend to happen when Water energies are particularly strong. In this case, it is a matter of tweaking your internal conversations to turn the negative into the positive.

The morning dew needs something to rest upon – usually, it’s the leaves and petals. This scenario denotes the sense of belonging that is always sought by the Gui Mao. You demand perfection in your relationships. But there is no such thing as a perfect relationship! As a result, please be aware that this elusive sense of belonging may inadvertently translate into an excessive attachment to the material world. When your sense of self-happiness and self-satisfaction is driven by what you have instead of what you create, it’s time to pull the hand-brakes!

GUI MAO, BUT BETTER

Even though the Gui Mao sits only on a single hidden stem, it seems to be already loaded with gifts. So how to make it better?

This Yi (乙)Wood Eating God must be protected at all costs. In this case, one recommendation is for you to learn better management skills. It could be time management, or people management, or let’s just put it under a single umbrella and call it resource management.

I know this sounds counter-intuitive. Why am I proposing a recommendation that seems to constrain creativity instead of unleashing it? On the contrary, better time management helps you free up more hours for creativity and helps you stay focused. Better resource management helps you prioritize and improve your creative output.

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.

#39 REN YIN (壬寅)/WATER TIGER: 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). Typically gregarious and visibly intelligent, there is always a layer of mystery lurking beneath the surface that makes the Ren Yin Day Master a very intriguing person to know.

REN YIN (壬寅)/WATER TIGER: OVERVIEW

Think of a river, winding its way through a dense and dark jungle. Something like… 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.

REN YIN (壬寅)/WATER TIGER: STRENGTHS

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.

  1. Ren Water Day Master. Ren Day Masters typically come equipped with naturally good instinct for people (whether you acknowledge it or not). The Ren Yin pillar calls up an image of the Ren Water being ‘controlled’. Unlike the splashier Ren pillars, yours is one where the Water element is more ‘orderly’. Externally, this presents as someone who is even-tempered. But the depths of this river cannot be underestimated. You are highly sensitive to changes in your environment, like the river negotiating the rapids to reach the sea, you have a subtle way of manipulating situations to your advantage.
  2. You, the Ren Day Master, sits on a Jia Wood Eating God. What gifts does it bring? Creativity, for one. The Ren Yin Day Master tends to be very well-informed. There is a thirst for knowledge in this pillar as well. This is also where you place a high premium on your relationships. Work-life balance is a must for you! It’s probably one of your non-negotiables.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

REN YIN (壬寅)/WATER TIGER: HOW YOU PRESENT

The Ren Water is the star of connectivity. It represents your ability 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.

REN YIN (壬寅)/WATER TIGER: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF + REN YIN, BUT BETTER

If there is one weakness in this pillar, it is this tendency towards feelings of inadequacy and self-criticism. Let me explain why.

For your Jia Wood Eating God to be useful, it needs to be chopped by Metal which represents Resource for the Ren Day Master. This 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.

Just because it’s missing from the Day Pillar doesn’t mean that Metal is completely absent in your chart. Even if there is zero Metal, 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 a new skill 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.

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)/METAL OX: THE GIFT OF UNIQUENESS

Observant, intuitive and possessing of a strong streak for self-reliance, the Xin Chou (辛丑) Day Master also comes blessed with a charming personality that gives you the competitive edge. And more, the Xin Chou Day Master has the potential to be unique, one-of-a-kind, stand out in a crowd. In other words, you dare to be different.

XIN CHOU (辛丑)/METAL OX: OVERVIEW

We all know what gold looks like. But how many of us have seen gold in its raw form? This unpolished raw metal in its original form, newly excavated from the ground, unpolished, solid and pure represents your personality. A diamond in the rough.

This is the Xin Chou (辛丑), which brings the gift of uniqueness.

But, 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.

XIN CHOU (辛丑)/METAL OX: STRENGTHS

Xin Chou Bazi
  1. Parked under your Xin Metal Day Master is a resourceful Ji Earth (己) Resource star. This star brings the gift of astute perception, sharp observation, swift thinking, and the ability to be a great ‘life learner’.  Seated on your resource star also signifies that resource is abundant in your life. This is where the Xin Chou can be very self-reliant. However, please understand that self-reliance is not about shouldering every hardship that comes your way.
  2. Instead, when your Ji Earth (己) Resource Star produces your Xin Metal (辛) Companion star, this brings about an inherent appreciation for your own self-worth, self-expression and self-acceptance. In other words, this represents your high level of self-confidence. You dare to be different! 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 differentiates the Xin Chou from all the other Xin variants. With your self-confidence bolstered by this rooted Friend star, the Xin Chou has the potential or the ability, to create a unique identity for yourself which helps you stand out of the crowd.
  3. Your Gui Water (癸) Output star gives you the capacity for fluid imagination, creativity, innovation, and inventiveness.

XIN CHOU (辛丑)/METAL OX: HOW YOU PRESENT

Given this level of self-confidence, the Xin Chou (辛丑) Day Master will typically present with a friendly and magnetic personality. You love meeting new people, and you enjoy magnetizing new friends into your life. After all, the Xin Metal is the star of networking!

All your relationships are meaningful to you. But for those lucky enough to get into your inner circle, they will find in you, a true and loyal friend who is genuinely protective and supportive.

(Side note: From a physical point of view, Xin Chou ladies are usually graceful, slender, and drop dead gorgeous.)

XIN CHOU (辛丑)/METAL OX: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

Be careful that strong sense of loyalty. It can be both an asset and a liability. Be careful to what or to whom you gift this loyalty to.

Staying loyal in a situation that is emotionally or mentally damaging will erode anyone’s self-confidence, but the Xin Chou is particularly vulnerable to this. Because when the negative thinking turns inwards, you literally end up attacking yourself.

And where would all that self-criticism get you? Absolutely nowhere.

XIN CHOU, BUT BETTER

So how can we maximize the uniqueness of the Xin Chou? 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 looks 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

Surround 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.

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)/METAL RAT: 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.

GENG ZI (庚子)/METAL RAT: OVERVIEW

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.

GENG ZI (庚子)/METAL RAT: STRENGTHS

Geng Zi Bazi
  1. At the end of the day, a Geng Metal (庚) is still a Geng Metal. This is an element of toughness. You are naturally goal-oriented, ambitious and have the innate willpower to become energized in the face of roadblocks and setbacks. In other words, you are not easily deterred.
  2. But where does the nonconformity come in? 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… particularly your Gui Water (癸) Output star:
    • Non-conforming attitude – Check! Seated on your own Hurting Officer star, the Geng Zi will naturally be more vocal and rebellious against the norms
    • Highly motivated by curiosity – Check! Again, the Gui Water is nothing but infinitely curious
    • Creative – Check! The Hurting Officer, being an output star, brings street-smarts and creativity to this equation
    • Idealistic – Check! Idealism is the corner stone of the two output stars Eating God and Hurting Officer
    • Opinionated and outspoken – Check! Hurting Officer anybody? So, it’s now obvious that your Gui Water Hurting Officer is the one that brings a lot of the non-contrarian attitudes to the Geng Zi.

GENG ZI (庚子)/METAL RAT: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

The Rat branch, being a restless and volatile body of energy, makes the Geng Zi a little more impatient than the rest. There are traits here that suggest you crave external validation and instant gratification. There is a constant need to feel appreciated, and when you don’t get that external validation, your self-confidence will start to falter. When that happens, you get all suspicious and defensive.

Here’s the problem. When you depend on others to build you up, you give them the power to break you down. Instead of waiting for others to appreciate you, learn to appreciate yourself! Easier said than done, I know. But try!

GENG ZI (庚子)/METAL RAT: HOW YOU PRESENT

Larger than life! The Geng Zi naturally fears appearing weak and insecure to others. So you tend to mask those internal insecurities by doubling down on the external persona. The first impression you give others may be one of a diva-like personality with a touch of arrogance. I know this sounds negative, but, it is divas who accumulate fans! Therefore, learn to work this to your advantage!

GENG ZI, BUT BETTER

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 as they commit to a goal. 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?

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)/EARTH PIG: THE GIFT OF YOUR VOICE

Witty, resourceful, bursting with energy, the Ji Hai (己亥) Day Master has one physical attribute that wins against everyone else. Consider it your superpower. It’s your voice! Ji Hai Day Masters are usually blessed with an enthralling and mesmerizing voice. But of course, you are more than just your voice.

Care to know more? Read on…

JI HAI (己亥)/EARTH PIG: OVERVIEW

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? 

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 lackadaisical.

To a point, you would be right. But did you know, that beneath that romantic exterior lies a very capable Day Master with the gift for planning and hard work?

Let’s talk about your strengths…

JI HAI (己亥)/EARTH PIG: STRENGTHS

Ji Hai Bazi
  1. Let’s start with your Ji Earth (己) Day Master. Like all Ji Earth, you are resourceful and productive. If I were a hiring manager, I would be delighted to have a Ji Hai working for me, especially a young Ji Hai Day Master who is just starting out in his or her career. Why? Because the Ji Hai is malleable and teachable. In other words, unlike the more stubborn Day Masters, the Ji Hai Day Master is open to external suggestions and therefore, will continue to expand and grow his or her potential exponentially.
  2. This trait of being teachable is amplified by the presence of your Jia Wood (甲) Officer star which at once ‘controls’ and ‘combines’ with your Ji Earth Day Master. This star is particularly important in the Ji Hai pillar. It creates the stability you need to become more self-confident. At the same time, it represents the opportunity for your hard work to help you gain authority, status, and recognition.
  3. If the Ji Hai sounds very pleasant so far, hang on a second. Never discount the fact that this nurturing and compassionate Ji Earth sits on an innovative and forceful Ren Water (壬) Wealth star. This star holds the most influence when it comes to the planning skills of the Ji Hai. After all, the Direct Wealth literally governs 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.

4. Despite the absence of any of your output stars, the Ji Hai Day Master can also be very creative. This comes from the smooth interactions within the Hai/Pig branch itself where the Water produces the Wood. In your case, this represents your Direct Wealth producing your Direct Officer, which translates into a powerful imagination, and the energy to go after your creative goals.

JI HAI (己亥)/EARTH PIG: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

But what about your vulnerabilities? Each of your strengths mentioned so far, will have a darker side. After all, that’s the concept of Yin and Yang.

Firstly, your vaunted malleability. Along with that easy-going attitude comes the tendency to be a people-pleasure.

Next, the presence of your Jia Wood (甲) Officer star may be important to create stability in your pillar, but at the same time, it could cause you to create too many rules for yourself, and ultimately, impending your own growth.

Finally, while the Ji Hai is usually even-tempered, you do have some trigger points – particularly when things don’t go to plan. This is especially true at a time when your Ren Water (壬) Wealth star gets out of control.

JI HAI (己亥)/EARTH PIG: HOW YOU PRESENT

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 tends to try to be everything for everyone. If you are aware of this trait, it can be kept under control.

JI HAI, BUT BETTER

Being Ji Hai, But Better is almost a no-brainer. Since you have been given an outstanding gift in your vocal cords, doesn’t it make sense to get some vocal training and build up your vocal image? Our voices and how we speak literally carry an image of us. You have been given a natural advantage in this area, so I’d use it to the max.

Lastly, strive to use your planning abilities to create work-life balance. This is something that is particularly important for the Ji Hai. Why? Because the golden sand of this beach is constantly in danger of being eroded by the sea. Therefore, this Day Master needs time for self-care. Otherwise, you end up over-exerting yourself.

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)/EARTH DOG: 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.

WU XU (戊戌)/EARTH DOG: OVERVIEW

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.

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.

WU XU (戊戌)/EARTH DOG: STRENGTHS

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

  1. Your Ding Fire (丁) Resource Star brings the gift of ambition, rationality and objectivity. Bolstered by your Ding Fire Resource star, the Wu Xu naturally wants to achieve something substantial. You have a fine grasp of details and you are a firm believer of learning by experience. In fact, the Wu Xu naturally likes knowledge. To be more specific, the Wu Xu likes to hoard knowledge.
  2. The more knowledgeable you are, the more self-confident you become – as seen by how your Ding Fire Resource Star produces your Wu Earth (戊) Day Master and Companion star. Proud and alert, this Companion star brings a natural flair for leadership, aided by your willingness to listen to opposing points of view. For all your toughness and straight talking, you enjoy working in a congenial atmosphere and will have little patience with pettiness and power plays.
  3. Finally, your Xin Metal (辛) Output star brings a desire for recognition. The gift of straightforwardness? It lies here. 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 you are, you 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, it can also be painful…

WU XU (戊戌)/EARTH DOG: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

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.

Additionally, when you put two mountains together into a single pillar, your 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.

WU XU (戊戌)/EARTH DOG: HOW YOU PRESENT

The Wu Xu typically presents with a steely, stoic, almost aloof persona. 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.

WU XU, BUT BETTER

With great power comes great responsibilities. Life is frequently less easy or smooth sailing for someone with so many abilities. 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 and learn to reframe (not silence) your own internal critic.

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)/FIRE ROOSTER: THE GIFT OF PERSPECTIVE

The Ding You (丁酉) calls up images of the glow of candlelight 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.

DING YOU (丁酉)/FIRE ROOSTER: OVERVIEW

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.

DING YOU (丁酉)/FIRE ROOSTER: STRENGTHS

  1. The Ding You pillar sits on the Rooster which is both your Night Noble as well as your Intelligence Star. This gives you a strong sense of nobility. In Chinese Metaphysics, the concept of nobility comes from a person who has the resources to be of help to others. And of course, seated on your own Intelligence star means that intelligence, knowledge and respect are par for the course.
  2. Persuasive and passionate, the Ding Fire is the only element that can truly transform all the others. Because of this, Ding Fire Day Masters tend to be typically open-minded. But more than that, the Ding You (thanks to the Intelligence star), has the inborn ability to link different concepts and ideas together to create new insights or breakthroughs. Now if that isn’t genius, I don’t what is.
  3. Your Xin Metal (辛) Wealth Star is the foundation of your innovative can-do attitude. This, coupled with your gift of perspectives, gives you the ability to look at obstacles and setbacks from different angles. Additionally, you thrive on challenges, viewing them as opportunities to learn, improve and demonstrate your abilities. Finally, because of your Xin Metal Wealth Star, you are never one to fall for the sunk-cost fallacy.  Instead, the Ding You is far-sighted enough to abandon a struggling strategy in favour of developing new tactics to attack the problem from a brand new angle. What was that famous line? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.

DING YOU (丁酉)/FIRE ROOSTER: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

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. But on the negative column, you find it really hard to accept advice.

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.

DING YOU (丁酉)/FIRE ROOSTER: HOW YOU PRESENT

For all your 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, the Ding You 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.

DING YOU, BUT BETTER

For the Ding You to truly shine, you need the freedom to pursue your intellectual curiosities without external interferences. In other words, the Ding You loathes being constrained. After all, this is an independent pillar that balks at restrictions and will rebel from too much authority.

Once given the room you needs to flex your creative muscle, you would be surprised to find that the Ding You can achieve tremendous feats of laser-like concentration and endurance. Therefore, to be Ding You, But Better requires you to make conscious choices in life that will give you the right environment or conditions.

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)/FIRE MONKEY: THE GIFT OF PURPOSE

The Bing Shen (丙申) pillar is literally seen as sunlight reflected. Extraordinarily ambitious, creative, visionary and witty, this pillar is a force to be reckoned with.

BING SHEN (丙申)/FIRE MONKEY: OVERVIEW

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!

And side note, Albert Einstein was a Bing Shen (丙申). Did you know that?

BING SHEN (丙申)/FIRE MONKEY: STRENGTHS

Bing Shen Bazi
  1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

BING SHEN (丙申)/FIRE MONKEY: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

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.

Another vulnerability? Bing Fire Day Masters in general, are usually advised not to lie! Because your Day Master is so visible, your lies tend to be found out! This caution is doubled for the Bing Shen. Because of your reflected sunlight, all the more your lies will be exposed.

BING SHEN (丙申)/FIRE MONKEY: HOW YOU PRESENT

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. 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.

BING SHEN, BUT BETTER

Because the Shen (申) is a travelling animal as well as your intelligent star, imagine being so smart that learning comes too easy for you. Little wonder that you are always driven to explore new directions.

So being Bing Shen, But Better calls for crafting a life where you 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.

Another important factor is to learn how to filter your friends. Who we hang out with can absolutely affect our achievements. This is particularly true for Bing Shen.

Also, given the intelligence of this pillar, it would also be useful if you can become an outstanding subject-matter expert in a particular topic. So pick one skill, and get so good at it, that the skill literally defines you.

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)/WOOD GOAT: THE GIFT OF SHREWDNESS

A plant growing on dry earth. No, not merely growing, but thriving! That’s the image conveyed by the energies of the Yi Wei (乙未) pillar. Yes, something like a cactus. Hey! Cacti can be pretty too, you know. Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it!

YI WEI (乙未)/WOOD GOAT: OVERVIEW

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 ounce of resource. This is where the shrewdness of the Yi Wei comes from. It reflects a person who can dig deep and make the most of any situation.

YI WEI (乙未)/WOOD GOAT: STRENGTHS

Yi Wei Bazi
  1. 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.
  2. This Ding Fire Output Star brings you a taste for luxury living as well as the willingness to work for that ideal lifestyle. You like refinement and charm, don’t you? Another gift of this Ding Fire is spirituality. The Yi Wei day master tends to be spiritually gifted and will have an interest in non-conventional wisdom. In most circumstances, you prefer to develop your own mind and intuition independently from others. Unique to the Yi Wei is an innate understanding or acceptance that you are solely responsible for your own self-development.
  3. Lastly, your Ji Earth Wealth Star represents your perseverance, resilience and persistence that gives you a tenacious mindset that will drive you 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.

YI WEI (乙未)/WOOD GOAT: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

One of the biggest vulnerabilities of the Yi Wei is your tendency to be a bit of a control freak. Again, this Yi Wood is growing in a harsh environment. This amps up your survival instincts which makes you at once demanding and critical of others.

Additionally, the Yi Wei 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.

YI WEI (乙未)/WOOD GOAT: HOW YOU PRESENT

The Yi Wei Day Master can come off as a bit of a loner, someone who prefers independence and solitude. Remember those sharp thorns?

Most Yi Wei Day Masters will tend to have a large group of acquaintances but few close friends. Generous and compassionate as you may be, the Yi Wei tends to like being the dominant person in any relationship. Could this be a handicap for you? Depends!

But like a cactus in the desert, your network of acquaintances are often myriad, varied but hidden from view.

YI WEI, BUT BETTER

To trigger a Yi Wei’s strengths is to cultivate a sense of purpose. This is when you truly become unstoppable. Because this sense of purpose, whatever it may be, is what will activate your willingness to work hard for an ideal, your resourcefulness and sheer will. What should this purpose be? You decide!

Additionally, be aware of the Yi Wei’s unquenchable thirst for knowledge. This dry Yi Wei pillar will suck up any and all knowledge. To maximize this gift, learn not only to store knowledge, but also to share knowledge.

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)/WOOD HORSE: 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.

JIA WU (甲午)/WOOD HORSE: OVERVIEW

Once again, it’s time to talk 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.

But hang on a second… I can hear you asking now – what’s all this bird song got to do with the gift of ambition? Let’s talk about your strengths.

JIA WU (甲午)/WOOD HORSE: STRENGTHS

  1. 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. An independent pillar, there is a very strong sense of dignity and self-respect that is inherent within the Jia Wu.
  2. However, this Jia sits on a flammable Ding Fire (丁) which represents your Hurting Officer star. In essence, this makes the Jia Wu a maverick among the Jia Pillars. This Ding Fire Hurting Officer lends brilliance and communication skills to the Jia Wu, endowing the usually stoic Jia Wood Day Master with originality, progressiveness and showmanship. This is one of the biggest gifts of the Jia Wu – the ability to pull together knowledge and information from a myriad of sources, and communicate those ideas in a unique and fresh manner.
  3. 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, you need to handle the hard work and execute your plans.

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.

JIA WU (甲午)/WOOD HORSE: VULNERABILITIES TO BE AWARE OF

Of all the 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.

And when that happens, the dark side of the Jia Wu shows up – rebellious and overbearing. Along with the strength of being able to re-brand information (as mentioned in the Strengths), comes a willingness to burn the house down just to prove you are right. This is next level, self-sabotage type of stubborn, we are talking about.

More on the solutions in the final segment, Jia Wu But Better.

JIA WU (甲午)/WOOD HORSE: HOW YOU PRESENT

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.

But in general, the Jia Wu Day Master tends to be socially active. You have a preference for those who can match your level of ambition and industriousness. And for those whom the Jia Wu considers friends and allies? The benevolent Jia Wu will do anything for them.

JIA WU, BUT BETTER

The challenge for the Jia Wu Day Master, is to learn to direct this passion and ambition and strike a balance that is aimed at sustainability. Be very aware of your proclivity to burn out.

In this pillar’s energy flow, the Day Master continually exerts strength. Nothing is supporting the Day Master. Which means that you must do it yourself. How? Learn! Open yourself to different thoughts, ideas, philosophies of others. Make your learning as wide-ranging as possible. Remember your unique strength? The ability to re-brand information? The more wide-ranging your knowledge, the more interesting your ideas become. So be the Google!

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.
