Grand Master Choa Kok Sui (GMCKS or MCKS) was born as Samson Lim Choachuy on August 15th, 1952, in the Philippines (Cebu City). He was very influential spiritual teacher, healing master and founder of Pranic Healing and Archatic Yoga. He passed away on March, 19th, 2007. Some people claim, that his early death at the age of 54 is the proof,  that his healing method doesn’t work, while many others claim, that he died because he was not able to protect himself from dark pranas of his clients. Such an exhaustion is very common among the practitioners of bioenergetics. Even some Pranic Healing practitioners think, that he has drained his vital energy while helping the others. Other Pranic Healing practitioners go even further and claim, that his early death was necessary in order to help people from spiritual realm.

Who is right? Who is wrong? From the Bazi aka Four pillars perspective we can find yet another answer, and this is a very different one. Bazi is the old Chinese system of cycle calculation in order to understand one’s Fate or Destiny. It is advocated as a branch of Chinese astrology, but actually it is dealing with calendric cycles and not with positions of the planets.

Bazi birth chart of Grand Master Choa Kok Sui looks like this:


Wu and Gui combination isn’t possible in the chart with so much water. So, GMCKS’s personal element is Gui or yin water. Yin water has deep emotions, deep thinking, it is mysterious and likes to protect his inner life from the outside world. Shen and Chen branches combine in the water frame.[1] So, Gui and Ren water in the heavens are well rooted in the branches. It is obvious, that his personal element is really strong. From GMCKS’s pillars one can’t determine weather his Gui water is extreme strong regular type or fake dominant water chart, because the data from the hour pillar are missing. Difference between regular strong and dominant chart can be observed in the luck elements of the client.

Each year and decade have their own elemental pattern, based on the cycle of water, wood, fire, earth and metal. When the personal life history is checked, one can determine the luck elements and the type of the chart. GMCKS died in the luck cycle of Gui Chen, which is very lucky for (fake) dominant water chart and very unlucky for exstreme strong regular water chart. The chart of his death day has strong water, too:


It is possible that Hai-Mao wood combination in the month of death is not successful. Wood is still strong in the season of Mao, but Ding Hai is in fanyin clash with personal day pillar. In this death chart water is already very strong (Ren, Gui, Hai, Zi). We have to deal with Ding Hai year pillar and the fanyin clash with personal Gui Si. In this combat fire element is overcame by the water element.  Day branch Zi creates full water frame with personal Shen – Chen. Connection between decade of Chou, Hai year and Zi day form directional union of water.

So, water is very, very strong and even quite strong wood in Mao month of death is not enough to consume so much water. This wood is also too wet to be useful for fire. Here we have another clue that water is unlucky element of GMCKS. Most of his main publications were published in the years of wood and fire. With all these information one can see, that GMCKS is extreme strong regular type of water. Extreme strong regular type means, that close to 80% of the chart is represented by the personal element together with its “parent” element (in the case of GMCKS his parental element is metal as metal enriches water). This is great imbalance, which brings in many troubles in life, specially in the times when unlucky cycles come. Additionally,fire is quite weaker than water in his chart and this is also serious imbalance.

The luckiest element in the chart of GMCKS is fire. This is crucial element for making his chart a little warmer. Wood is lucky, too. Wood, when strong enough, can serve as consumer of water and it also feeds the fire if it is not too wet.

GMCKS was born in the reach business-oriented family of Chinese descent. Father was a Christian and mother was a devoted Buddhist. With unlucky year and month pillar, it would be normally to expect that GMCKS would be born in the poor family. But the pillar of Wu Shen is powerful and Ren Chen is a type of Fui Gong. Additionally, GMCKS pillars are mutually connected with the various influences. Wu stem in the month is earth and is rooted in day branch Si and year branch Chen. Day stem Gui is rooted in the water of Shen and Ren stem of the year is also rooted in the water of Shen branch. Earth of Shen is the element that influences Ren and Gui and wood element in the month stem Wu is influenced by the wood of the year branch Chen. Such interpillar connections strengthen the chart and brings in opportunities for public success. These are strong indications that basic formula is not valid- parents had opportunities to get reach.

It is said, that GMCKS was quite a lonely child, preferring books and studying to playmates and outdoor activities. With interconnections of roots between pillars one would expect GMCKS to be very sociable. But he has lonely stars in the day, month and year, so he needed a recluse through all of his life. Perhaps he has no academic stars (even in the hour), but Shen has some metal, which is information for water and Si is mysterious researcher, which could be interested in metaphysics, mysteries and occultism.

He earned a degree in chemical engineering and followed his father’s modern footsteps into business. Chemistry and chemicals are connected with the water element or sometimes with the earth element. In the case of GMCKS there is plenty of water in the chart. In the pillar of Wu Shen there are water and earth together. It is obvious that his decision to study chemical engineering is influenced from the year and specially from the month pillar (month rules the time between 15th and 32th or 33th year of life). This is an indication that parents influenced young GMCKS to choose this study.

It is said that GMCKS was a wealthy and successful businessman. Yes, the reasons are the same as the wealth potential of his parents. Plus- there are some additional indicators- Tianyi, Tiande, Yuede, Ren Chen etc… You can check my list of wealth indicators.  GMCKS had some wealth indicators, so he had potential to became reach. But remember- the birth chart is about potentials of wealth, not about wealth, it is about potentials of glory and not about glory, it is about potentials for spiritual growth and not about mastership. In most cases one must earn his or her name and success. Many people have been born with the same chart as GMCKS, but it seems that most or all of them aren’t (or haven’t been) so successful as GMCKS.

When person is 18 or little bit older, most people in the middle of 20th century have married. What about GMCKS? With so many lonely stars and secrecy of Gui water there is not much information on his personal life. It is said that he had children, the elder daughter Catherine and at least one younger daughter. As the hour pillar is missing from our data, we can’t use Bazi explanation.  The partner element of GMCKS is the fire element and it can be found in the day branch of Si. Day branch is also called a Palace of spouse. Fire is very lucky for GMCKS, so he was quite lucky with his wife. As there is at least partial fire punishment (two branches from Yin-Si-Shen) between Si and Shen, there was also some karmic issues to be cleansed in the partnership (pressures of GMCKS’s parents?). Both Gui and Si are secretive and intimate, so one can not expect much public info about their marriage.

The greatest issue in the life of GMCKS is definitely his spiritual path, his great spiritual advancement and great spiritual knowledge, he had. Even without the data of hour pillar, one can count a lot of spiritual indicators in his life (look at my article on spiritual indicators). There are at least 12 indicators (water day master, a lot of water in the chart, connection between water and fire, Tianyi, Tiande, Yuede, Taiji stars, good roots etc). When the person with 10 or more spiritual indicators is found, such a person has potential to become a spiritual master. Again: potential is not the same as a developed ability. In most cases one must earn his or her name, ability and success. Many people have been born with the same chart as GMCKS, but it seems that most or all of them aren’t (or haven’t been) so successful as GMCKS.

It is said that GMCKS studied Yoga, Kabbalah, Qigong, Crystals, Meditation, Fengshui etc. for 40 years. With all of his chart spiritual, it is normally to expect, that GMCKS would study at least some of these approaches all over his life. He developed Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga. I have already researched connections between five elements and chakras, and my results are very simmilar to the system, used by GMCKS. Day pillar rules one’s life between 33rd and 50th year. In the case of GMCKS this is branch Si or Snake, which rules the years between 1985 and 2002. Snake fire of Si represents his money, Feng shui, pranic and occult studies.  Between 1980 and 2007 there are some balanced or lucky years for GMCKS (i.e.: years with stronger wood or fire):

1987, 1988, 1990 (slowly declining energy in 1991 and 1992), 1995 (with slowly declining energy in 1996), 1999 and 2000. These years correlates with GMCKS’s most important events and publications.

In 1987, which was the year of Bing Yin with the wood and strong fire, GMCKS published his first book on basic Pranic Healing, “The Ancient Science and Art of Pranic Healing,” later released as “Miracles Through Pranic Healing.” It is said that GMCKS started to synthesize his knowledge from 1983 to 1987. It is possible, that he deliberately waited to the year 1987, because Bazi studies are also part of Fengshui knowledge and he was probably familiar with calculations.

1988 was the year of Ding Mao, again the year of stronger fire over the wood. Mao is also academic star. This year was good for anything connected with studies and spirituality. In the year of 1988 GMCKS has founded “Institute for Inner Studies” to serve the Western hemisphere.

Two years later, in 1990, he founded “World Pranic Healing Foundation” to serve the developing countries. This was the year of Ji Si, and there is his fire Si in the branch of that year. As mentioned before, Si is GMCKS’s substitute for Academic star. So, there we have another organization for spiritual studies.  The branch of Si is connected with psychology and spirituality, among others.[2] The chart of GMCKS is full of water, which is the element of psychology, and together with Si branch and GMCKS’s spiritual potentials, it is no major surprise that he published the book “Pranic Psychotherapy” in this year.

It is said that the book “Advanced Pranic Healing” was published in the year 1992. Advanced Pranic Healing is the matter, which fills the gap between Basic Pranic Healing and Pranic Psychotherapy. It seems, that GMCKS created large part of his book in the years of 1990 and 1991, but it was finished and published in the year of 1992. Year of 1992 is probably nothing special in the energy pattern of his chart. It is about Xin Wei year. Or perhaps this year is connected with the hour pillar and still has some value?

In 1996 he published “Pranic Crystal Healing”. This is the Yi Hai year and has wood in the stem. Crystal between practitioner and the client is between two pranic systems. In the same way, fire Nayin element is between Yi stem and Hai branch. Fire is positive element for GMCKS. Crystal is ordinary viewed as earth element, but crystals for healing are conic and have the nature of the fire element, too.

The last lucky years are 1999 (partially) and 2000. 1999 is the year Wu Yin and is a little tricky year. Yin is lucky element of wood, but together with Si and Shen it forms full penalty of fire. Penalties deal with karma, karmic punishment or karmic reward and with hidden matters. As the fire is lucky element of GMCKS, we can expect some karmic reward, but there can also be some issues at the same time. For spiritual teacher it is time to think about karma of visible and invisible world. GMCKS published the book “Psychic Self-defense”. Entities and elementals are invisible, hidden matters and they are often connected with karma.

In 2000 he published “Meditations for Soul Realization”. This was the year of Ji Mao. Mao is wood element and his Academic star. Wood is the way between water and fire and this book is the way between material life and soul realization. Perhaps the hour pillar could reveal ore info abut this year and this publication. After 2002 there is no influence of Si in the chart of GMCKS. Pranic healing and Archatic yoga are children of his Si branch (1985-2002).

GMCKS has written many more spiritual books, but the books, mentioned above, are crucial books of Pranic Healing. Gui and Si love secrets and mysteries and GMCKS has followed these influences. The spiritual teachings are revealed step by step. In order to learn from the system of GMCKS, you have to deal with basic courses in Pranic Healing., for example. And Archatic yoga is thought in secrecy even today- there is no book published on that matter.

The last info of GMCKS is about his death on March, 19th, 2007. It is said that he died of pneumonia. There are some charlatans among Bazi practitioners, who claim that they can determine the time of death. This is impossible. Natal chart is about main energetical patterns and about main potentials. No one knows if someone would activate his or her potentials, what kind of food will one eat, how many medications one will take, what kind of karma will be gathered in one’s life etc. All these make us different. But it is true, that illness and death “prefer” unlucky cycles to lucky cycles.

As mentioned above, GMCKS’s chart is very imbalanced. People with such a chart have problems in life. GMCKS has indicators, that these problems would not be of business or spiritual nature. One should also not expect major issues in partnerships (but there could be some of them because of karmic cleansing between Si and Shen). So, the remaining area is health. Health is a weakest point of GMCKS. His body’s constitution is too weak. As a general rule Gui Si day pillar can easily become ill[3]. Gui Si pillar and Si- Shen penalty indicates probable problems with heart and blood. Wu Shen and Ren Chen expose metabolism. Ren Chen in the year pillar can be connected with head issues. Too many “friends” (water elements) can bring infections. Too many water elements indicate bones, urinary bladder, kidneys… At first sight there is no clear indication for the problems with pneumonia.

But there is connected story of chest and lungs in this chart. Originally, Shen is metal element and it sits in the basic area of lungs and large intestine (metal), i.e. in the month branch. For the connections between the stems, branches, illness and locations of the body please read my article about Bazi and health. In the Shen branch of GMCKS one can find Death star. Death star in the unfavorable element could show health problems of the family member. But in the case of GMCKS things are not so straightforward.

Shen- lungs- are connected with the year branch Chen (water combination between Chen and Shen). In Chen, GMCKS has an Illness star. And there is also penalty between Shen and Si. Shen and Si sits in the lung area and at the same time they are represented as heartache or any (!) pain in the chest. Month Wu stem is also in the location of lungs and chest is also represented by Wu stem. And at last- lungs are also represented by the seal element. In this case this is metal element of Shen, which is also connected to lungs, as already mentioned.

Shen branch is connected with lungs and metal and in the case of this chart at the same time represents water. So, in the chart of GMCKS lungs are connected with the element of water, too. The period Ren Zi (1990-2000) makes full water frame between Shen, Zi and Chen. Lungs are already exposed. In the period of Gui Chou (2000-2010) this Gui is another transformation star for strengthening the illness and death pattern between Chen and Shen. The year of death is Ding Hai. Ding Hai is in total clash (fanyin) with personal Gui Si. Fire as the vital element of this chart is destroyed in this clash. Si is also connected with Shen and represents lung. As fire penalty it can also add fever or inflammation. We get the situation on the day of death.  Day of death has Zi branch, making water too strong, exposing lung problem. The water is not strong only in the chart of death, but it also become stronger in personal chart (Zi connects Shen and Chen) and in connection of luckiness: Hai year, Zi day and decade of Chou form directional union of water. The wood in this structure is too weak to help release water. In this day, GMCKS departed his body.

Imbalanced charts with 20 or 30 years of “bad” luck are inclined to injuries, illness or even death. Situation is extremely dangerous for the radical imbalances like in the case of extreme strong regular chart. The chart of GMCKS is one of such charts and it has serious additional imbalances, too (Death star and Illness star, too cold chart, Gui Si day pillar). In his case the first five cycles of luck are bad, but perhaps there are some positive influences in the years 1970-1980. However- there are extremely bad cycles in the age of 1980-2010. The positive Si branch is too weak to prevent degradation of vital energy. The length of one’s life is relative according to the heaviness of one’s Destiny. 50 years with hard health destiny may have greater pounder than 100 years of easy health destiny. One could expect that most people with the chart like GMCKS would die in the period of 1980-2000. It is very hard to survive 20 years of such devastating energies. GMCKS died in 2007. His prolonged life is due to his practice of Pranic healing and Archatic yoga, I guess. If Choa Kok Sui would stayed alive till 2010, he would enter 20 years of big luckiness and would probably live a much longer life. These periods are Jia Yin and Yi Mao, they are full of wood elements. And wood can support the lonely Si branch and its fire element, the vital force of GMCKS’s life power.


[1] Normally, such combination demands presence of Zi branch or at least Gui stem in the heavens. We have Gui stem in the day pillar, but day pillar is a weak transformation star. However, Zi is not substituted only by Gui, but partially also in Ren. This stem is present in the year pillar. So, we get water combination between Shen and Chen.

[2] Occupations, connected with Si branch could be: Researching mysteries, materialistic professions,  proffessions which serves ambitions, jewelry, commerce, money, public relations, economy, business, traveling, transport, catering, advertising, politics, lawyer, researcher, selling ideas, psychology, sociology, spirituality, astrology, archeology, music, painting, color, design, fashion, music. There are some other proposals, too.

[3] Gui Si pillar is connected to: chronic sickness, reproductive organs, eyes, heart, blood, possible high blood pressure (if other signs), possibility of alcohol problems. If Gui Si is the day pillar, person can become more ill.




The Colors of Chakras

I have done a little research on the colors of the chakras. In last two years I’ve met many people, who are energetically very sensitive and read many books on symbolism. I’ve found out that people’s third eyes are closed (most of the people) or only partially and selectively open (minority of the people). One can at least temporarily open third eye during special deep meditations or during “medicine” journeys with ayahuasca, wachuma, magic mushrooms etc.  Vedic and hindu knowledge about chakras could be influenced by the experience of soma/haoma, magic elixir, which was prepared from psychoactive plants like acacia trees and wild rue. Acacia-rue mix, for example, rises the levels of DMT in the body and stimulates one’s third eye. When third eye is open and active, it can be filled either with balanced patterns or with imbalanced patterns and it can be rooted in many cultural patterns and influenced by them. Consequently, traditions about colors or geometrical shapes in the chakras or in the parts of the chakras might be based on illusions (hallucinations) and influenced by cultural patterns.

I am very cautious about chakras geometry and numerology (number of leaves, geometrical shapes), because chakras are more complex on the higher levels (more leaves for example). Perhaps nothing is wrong about that, but nevertheless, this can be an indication, that we are dealing with synthetic representation of chakras, where true features of the chakras could be veiled with synthetic illusional symbolism. In order to avoid such influences, I have focused only on the colors of chakras. I have used “stable” information, based on the “rainbow pattern”, doctrine of Chinese five elements (wu xing) and yin-yang representations. When the “rainbow approach” is used only, or when the wuxing is used only, one can get simplistic answers on the colors of the chakras:

chakras- basic

In order to get closer to the real colors of the chakras, multiple techniques should be used. I have used both “rainbow approach” and basic “wuxing approach”, but also the advanced “wuxing and yin-yang approach”. The basic elementary nature of chakra is revealed at the center of the chakra, the outer zone is influenced by upper, middle and lower level (violet, orange-yellow and type of army green/olive green). Concentric circles are in rainbow sequence when possible (sometimes perhaps too arbitrary, but accurate enough for this purpose). I’ve got following results:

chakras- complex

Then I decided to check if there is any information on the representations of chakras with such colors. What I’ve found out is that there is no system, which consistently uses these colors. But I have found one system, which uses many patterns and this is the system of Choa Kok Sui. Choa Kok Sui (1952-2007) was a master of Pranic Healing and Archatic yoga. This master died at the age of 54 and I immediately make a conclusion, that he must have died because he has lost too many life Energy in his bioenergetic healings. But when I have checked his Bazi aka Four pillars of Destiny chart (type of Chinese astrology), it became clear that Choa Kok Sui was a very strong water type of person. He desperately needed wood and fire and some earth element energy to weaken too strong water. Almost all of his luck cycles were unlucky! From 1977 to 2010 he was in the constant flow of devastating energies. His most lucky element was Snake fire of Si, which represents his money, feng shui, pranic and occult studies. This element was slightly active between around 33 to around 50 years old and this kept him alive- extremely long periods of unluckiness may cause fatal illness. If Choa Kok Sui stayed alive till 2010, he would enter 20 years-period of extreme luckiness and would probably live a long life! However, when I have seen his chart, I asked myself how had this guy managed to survive till 2000. It must have been Pranic healing and Archatic yoga, I guess. It seems to me, that Pranic Healing hasn’t exhausted this man as some of his supporters claimed. It has been rather his battle with extremely bad luckiness cycles. So, I’ve read some books, written by this guy.

In his basic book “Miracles through Pranic Healing” (version from 2017) he is dealing with the colors of the chakras. Two representations are shown between the pages 42 and 43. The first one combines the colors with chakras’ pie-charts (each part with different color). The second one uses concentric circles and some “flower-type” pattern. From the book “The Spiritual Essence of Man” (version from 2017) it is clear, that the first representation show chakras in slow motion and the second representation shows chakras in fast motion. It is said that these descriptions of chakras have been got from psychic persons. Higher chakras of Choa Kok Sui are more complex than lower. As I have said, I am very cautious about possible synthetic information, so I haven’t researched geometry of chakras.

When I’ve compared my own findings with the descriptions and pictures, offered by Choa Kok Sui, it became clear that there are many parallels with the representations of the fast rotating chakras, pictured in the material of Choa Kok Sui. However, his pictures of the upper chakras have less parallels with my representations of the central parts and his pictures of lower chakras have less parallels with outer zones of my representations. Let’s go through the findings.

chakras- comparative approach.png

When I cut out the inner and the most outer zone of the crown chakra, I get representation number 1. This representation is quite similar to the finding of Choa Kok Sui, but the order of concentric circles differs a little bit and the central part of his representation is completely different. When I cut out the inner and the most outer zone of the upper third eye chakra, I get representation number 2. The concentric circles are almost completely equal to the circles in the material of Choa Kok Sui. However, central parts of chakra are represented differently. When I cut out the inner and the most outer zone of the lower third eye chakra, I get representation number 3. The colors are exactly the same as shown in the material of Choa Kok Sui, but in this case his representation dosen’t follow the general scheme of colored concentric circles, but separate the chakra into two equal halves.  Representation of throat chakra (number 4) is visually different from the representation of Choa Kok Sui. Instead of concentric circles, he stresses flower-like arches, made from blue, violet, green, yellow with some grey tones and there is some white color, too. These are exactly the same colors, used in my representation. The representation of the middle heart chakra (number 5) is quite similar to representation of Frontal heart chakra of Choa Kok Sui, but there only little yellowish tones and more orange tones in his representation. If we cut the outer orange zone in my representation, the order of colors is generally the same.

chakras- comparative approach 2

The representation of the lower heart chakra (number 5) is quite similar to the representation of Back heart chakra of Choa Kok Sui, but there are only little yellowish tones and more orange tones in his representation. If we cut the outer orange zone in my representation, the order of colors is generally the same.  Representation of solar plexus chakra (number 7) differs from representation of Choa Kok Sui a lot. But it is interesting, that we can see striking blue circle in both representations. When I cut out the inner and the most outer zone of the navel chakra, I got representation number 8. The colors and order of circles used in my representation is actually the same as that from the representation od Choa Kok Sui. The sexual chakra without the outer zone (number 9) and the basic chakra without the outer zone (number 10) have some similarities with the representations of Choa Kok Sui, but they are not the same.

My conclusion is that the representations of Choa Kok Sui are quite good and they obey the rules of five elements. At the same time, there are some differences and this can be due to some additional rules, unknown to me at the present time, or there are some synthetic patterns added by those psychics, who helped Choa Kok Sui to make those representations.

If you are interested in Pranic Healing, I can give you wonderful representation of the basic Panic Healing:



Ten Heavenly Stems and Their Locations on the Planet

I am very interested in the study of Chinese metaphysics of the five elements. Eight years ago (November, 2008), I discovered connection between ten heavenly stems and locations on the planet.


First, I have located five longitudinal bands. Longitudinal bands are connected with five elements. The water band is located at Pacific, where there is the largest amount of water on Earth. As water element gives birth to the wood element, the wood element is represented by “new lands” (Siberia, Japan, New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand) in the west of the water band. The border between the wood and water is approximately the same as International Date Line. Other four borders are easy to map:

  • Eastern longitudes 108°-180°: water= Pacific
  • Eastern longitudes 36°-108°: wood= first land in the western Pacific
  • Longitudes 36° west-36° east: fire
  • Western longitudes 36°-108°: earth
  • Northern longitudes 108°-180°: metal


It is very important to understand that prenatal yang is represented by the south geographic and magnetic poles. And prenatal yin is represented by the north geographic and magnetic poles. The northern hemisphere has the same postnatal yin-yang pattern for climate (colder north and warmer south) as the prenatal yin-yang pattern of planetary magnetic field and prenatal planetary yin-yang pattern of human body position (south is yang, north is yin). But at the southern hemisphere yin-yang pattern of planetary magnetic field and the planetary yin-yang pattern of human body position (south is yang, north is yin) are still the same. But the postnatal pattern of climate (warmer north and colder south) is different. This is why no doubts between yin and yang are raised at the northern hemisphere.  But in the southern hemisphere climate is colder in the south and the yearly weather cycle differs six months from the yearly climate cycle of the northern hemisphere. Postnatal influences are obviously different from the postnatal influences of the northern hemisphere. Undoubtedly these postnatal influences have important impact on physical energies and on the quality of one’s life. At the same time, prenatal influences, measured in Bazi (Day Master – Self- and his/her relation with other stems) are based on the prenatal pattern of yin-yang. Former and Later Heaven, used in Feng Shui, are prenatal (heavenly) influences, too.

If equator is taken as the border between planetary yang (south) and planetary yin (north), we can map ten areas, based on ten stems:

Svet po desetih deblih


The story does not stop here. Prenatal planetary influence, based on the solar and lunar movement in the sky, are based on longitudinal bands with their basic yin and yang influences.  But latitudional earthly planetary influences (more postnatal) are going from south to the north. Far north and far south are very cold, so water is represented there. As southern hemisphere has prenatal planetary yang influence, fire element has to be found on the south. So, we get these influences:

  • Southern latitudes 72°-90°: water
  • Southern latitudes 36°-72°: wood
  • Southern latitudes 0°-36°: fire
  • Northern latitudes 0°-36°: earth
  • Northern latitudes 72°-90°: metal
  • Northern latitudes 36°-72°: water

This scheme can also be supplemented by yin influence west of Greenwich and yang influence east of Greenwich. More prenatal longitudional influences are faced with latitudional influences in the similar way as Day Master is accompanied by ten “Shi Shen” aka Ten Gods. Here is the map (it is old map, not translated in English):

Svet po desetih deblih- izvedba

As you can see, the elementary influences have something to do with the regional patterns. Real borders are actually based on relief patterns, too, but for general reasoning this map with pure quadrants is usable.


What can be found in this map? We can detect some general energetic influences. Most of the time, these influences are only general overview. We don’t know the elementary nature of historic periods. For the time present, however, it is obviously the time of fire (IT, global warming, Islamic fundamentalism “from deserts”). Let’s see what we can be given by interpretation.

Southern America, for example, is Geng metal under the influence of fire. Metal is also represented as claws and fire is also represented as air and bird. This part of the world is known as the land of the Condor. General pattern for Mesoamerica is Xin metal with the support of earth. Xin is gold and jewelry, the myth of El Dorado. Eastern North America is extreme xin metal. Metal is capital, banks and money… Real western border of this quadrant is based on the Rocky Mountains. Rocky Mountains are west and metal, so the Golden Rush was there. Western part of North America is Gui Water with the support of metal. This is xin metal in Gui Water- beautiful pearl from water.  Water is communication, movies. There is Hollywood, too.

Metal can be the sign of heavenly energies, but lower level of metal influence can bring in moral and physical deterioration and decadence. North America as an important player of the western capitalism and Europe to some lesser extent, are two main civilizations, which have brought (a)morality of western capitalism with destruction of interpersonal relationships, and with destruction of environment. Metal is conquered by fire. Strong fire is connected with our age (global warming, information technology, nuclear energy) and on the other side with Near East and its Islamic fundamentalism- “fire madness”.Fire madnessis represented by too hot and dry areas in the time of prevailing fire! The attack of moderate fire can be good for America, because fire is able to diminish too strong metal. But the extreme fire of nuclear weapon can hurt America, too. This is why I think that America and Europe should rethink its military doctrine and its international policies.

Central Russia and central Asia are Ding fire with metal.  Ding fire conquers metal-west (nomads from steppes like Turks, Avars, Mongols, Scythians etc…, Soviet Union…). Should we rethink the unsuccessful western adventure in Ukraine? Russia has wet region with cold winters and there is no “fire madness” in it. Real danger for Europe and Northern America begins in dry and hot Central Asia.

Northern China is yi wood, which defends against metal. This means attacks from the west and north-west. When China get weak, too much water (north) will also cause danger. Geng is also yang metal and this yang metal is connected with Qian- prenatal heaven. This, together with South Asia quadrant with its fire to earth formula (causing too many thoughts or!! The state of Emptiness- Wu in Daosim or another concept- shunyata in Buddhism) brings in the development of Daoism. Strong metal is proper authority for yi wood- Chinese bureaucracy and Confucianism are also represented by this relation. Confucionism and Chinese bureaucracy are also related to the South China quadrant with yi wood conquering the earth (earth means land, bureaucracy, patterns, rules).

Europe, for example, is Ji earth with metal influences. So, Europe can be creative, connected with technology, money and capital. Again: present days are connected to computers, information, internet and artificial intelligence. Computers and information are symbolized by the fire element. Global warming is also connected with the fire element. So, fire is getting very strong. The fall of the Rome (“western world) is connected with the fire, attacking the metal, I guess. So, present day strong fire is connected with big danger for western Europe like Benelux, Britain, France and Hispania and for the core European capitalism (metal!), which also includes Germany and Italy. It is obvious, that Europe is endangered from three fire quadrants. At the time of the Roman Empire, South Asia quadrant was connected with Persia. South Asia quadrant and North Africa quadrant were connected with the rise of Christianity, which brought inner turmoil in the empire. The whole story was probably like this: strong metal exhausted the earth. With the earth exhausted, metal finally became weak and was taken away from northern (water) and eastern (wood) people. North Africa quadrant is hot Ji earth (=Sahara). In the north and north-east the connection of Ji earth with the water represents the idea of conquering the promised land. Ji earth with water (Nile, Mediteran, Jordan) also brings the pattern of being physically or spiritually dirty, it brings the need to cleanse oneself, the need to control and cleanse one’s sexuality. So, Egypt and Judea became the lands of the “religion of sin” or “religion of sexual puritanism”, like Egyptian religion, Judaism and Christianity. Hot earth can also represent aggressive religions. Judea is also connected with South Asia quadrant- Ding fire and hot earth. So, it partly symbolizes fire (fundamental faith) of the desert. This was a spiritual danger from ancient Judaism and Christianity to the Roman Empire. Please note that Christianity and Judaism have both many positive messages from their religion, too. Here I deal with fundamentalists only.

Back to the present-day Europe: Central Russia/Central Asia quadrant is Ding fire with metal. Ding fire conquers metal-west. “Fire madness” is represented by the hot and dry areas in the time of prevailing fire. The same story is visible in the South Asia quadrant- Ding fire and hot earth. Only Hinduistic India with its forests and water is safe and spiritually more balanced, with occasionally hot-tempered religious outbursts. North Africa quadrant is extreme Ji earth in the hot zone of Sahara. All these quadrants indicate the greatest danger for (mostly western) Europe, for European capitalism and European law and bureaucracy. This greatest danger comes from the zone with the extreme fire influence (hot and dry): Turkemistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Iran, parts of Turkey and all the Arabia Magna. It is hard to say from which particular region the danger come and from which region this danger doesn’t come. All these regions have something in common: rising Islamic fundamentalism. Islam was born in the inner part of the Arabian Peninsula, so it symbolizes fire (strong faith) of the desert with its own need to cleanse oneself, own need to spread the territory of religious influence and its need for sexual purity (fire needs water, but when small amount of water is added to earth, earth will try to conquer sexual water and this could jeopardize spiritual connection of fire-water). Please note that Islam contains many positive messages, too. Here I deal with fundamentalists onlyIt is obvious that the rising influence of Islamic Fundamentalism in the decadent Europe is a long-term problem. It attacks western (a)morality, European bureaucracy and European market. But it also attacks non-islamic lifestyle of Europe. Europe has two ways how to deal with this situation:

  • Peaceful way with preventing wars in North Africa and Arabia instead of creating them and helping Arabian world to develop and helping these people to get drinking water. This is the only true way, making the Europeans responsible and connected. This has strong spiritual or/and ethical foundations, too.  We have only one planet and we are honored to live on it.  We are all brothers and sisters in the big home of our planet. We need conversion of our hearts. The most Supreme God is only one and he is near.  And planet Earth is crying. Even if there is almost nothing you can do about this situation, you can pray or you can try to become better human and you will get the answer what to do.
  • Hostile way, which is actually “no-way” with more and more fortified borders, with military actions, concentration camps for refugees, with new wars over the world and with the rising of neo-fascistic regimes across the Europe. This way of hostility is very dangerous for Europe and for the whole world, because there are additional factors (regional mundane Feng Shui, some other influences of five elements etc.), which can lead to collapse. Remember Rome! Rome was metal civilization (military, big capital) in the zone of Ji Earth. Under these circumstances the fire lead to consumption of fire by earth and feeding the metal by the earth. Strong metal influence became even stronger and bring disaster to Roman Empire. Nature of Europe is basically the earth element. Too strong metal can destroy earth. When earth is exhausted on the large scale (different from Bazi charts of individuals), metal will get weak, too. And then the fire, water and wood can destroy metal. Today Europe is playing dangerous game with information in the time of fire and fire also represents nuclear bomb! Raymond Lo has shown that Ding fire is connected with nuclear bombs.  So, the hostile way can cause, that rising fire in the Near East and Arabic world on general could lead to nuclear weapon among Islamic fundamentalist. If this happens, the age of Europe could be over. And again, age of America can be over, too, because we live in the global world! There is no excuse. We have to take our responsibility, open our minds and hearts. Praying or trying to become better humans. Supporting divine policies to save our souls, lives or at least our planet. Even if we are all gone, let the planet Earth survive!

Back to the second map. As you can see, I have added some funny notes on Atlantis, Lemuria, Middle Asia (Shangrila, Gobi etc.) and Hyperborea. There are no clear proofs that such advanced civilizations really existed. But it is funny to see the energy patterns, connected with the beliefs about these kingdoms. Figure them out by yourself 😉

Bazi (Four Pillars) and Na Jia

There is a simple rule for using Na Jia aka Hidden stems in Bazi. Strictly speaking Na Jia is part of Yi Jing. Bridge between stems and trigrams are represented by this system. Na Jia is derived in Later Heaven sequence, using both Early and Later Heaven arrangement. Gender is represented in Early Heaven and we use yang polarity for male and yin polarity for female. With this tool we go through the Later Heaven stem sequence.

The first prenatal pair is Qian- Kun, so Kun, which is only one palace away from the exalted position, is the starting point. Yang Qian uses Jia and yin Kun uses Yi. We see that in the Later Heaven Qian- Kun order starts at Kun. Now it is the time to place the fire stems. The next trigram to be used is Dui. In Early Heaven Dui’s yin-yang opposite is Gen. Dui is yin and its stem is Ding, while Gen is male and its stem is Bing. Going in the clockwise direction of Later Heaven in search for the earth stems, the next trigram to be used is Kan. In Early Heaven Kan’s yin-yang opposite is Li. Kan is male and its stem is Wu, while Li is female and its stem is Ji. We continue to search the metal stems. The next trigram to be used is Zhen. In Early Heaven Zhen’s yin-yang opposite is Xun. Zhen is yang and its stem is Geng, while Xun is female and its stem is Xin. At this point all trigrams are used, but there are ten stems and only eight trigrams. So, we start the new circle and use the pair Qian- Kun again. Qian is male, yang and its secondary stem is Ren, while Kun is female and yin and its corresponding secondary stem is Gui.


This stem-trigram connection had a major role in developing Feng Shui formula for San He 24 Mountains. On the Earth level the polarity of the stems/mountains follows the functional polarity of the trigrams. Gui stem follows Kun and the function of Kun is yang in the most cases (its gender is yin, but Kun as exposed mother is quite yang). The youngest son (Gen) has a male gender, but functionally he is of yin polarity (young child, dependent on his mother). For other trigrams the gender polarity and functional polarity are the same. In this way the polarity for all the mountains with stems can be ascertained. Exception is the mountain of Geng, which has yin polarity in San He 24 Mountains. This is because the 24 mountains should have 12 yang mountains and 12 yin mountains. Without yin polarity of the Geng mountain there would be 13 yang and 11 yin mountains. So, one mountain has to be sacrificed and should use a yin polarity instead of the expected yang polarity. The Zhen-Xun pair is the last offspring pair in the circle, so Zhen’s stem Geng has the weakest position and follows the higher order, adopting the yin position. Well, this seems to be a little bit forced solution, slightly unnatural and this is perhaps the weakest part of San He Mountain formula.

However, in modern times Na Jia formula has another and well known variant. Because there is no Wu and Ji stem in the mountains, some people cast them out and use Gui for Kan and Ren for Li. The logic behind this is in pairing of the postnatal and prenatal Heaven position in search for the substitute stems. Li connects with Qian, and Qian brings in Ren. Kan connects with Kun, and Kun brings in Gui stem. This approach is theoretically weak: the order of five elements in the postnatal Heaven is broken. If the earth stems are cast out, fire should be used for Kan and Li, metal for Gen and Dui and water for Zhen and Xun. However, this is not the case. Early Heaven pattern is also broken. When the standard and older formula is examined in the context of the Early Heaven, the opposite sequence is gradual and symmetric: Qian-Kun (wood), Dui-Gen (fire), Li-Kan (earth), Zhen-Xun (metal)- Qian-Kun (water).  If we introduce water in the pair Li-Kan, the order is corrupted. In the imaginary view Kan with Gui becomes too strong water, while Wu stem encircles water and Ji stems prevents spreading of the fire. The rule of water Na Jia stems in the pair of Li-Kan is not a valid formula!

However, the Na Jia formula can also be used as the secondary tool in Bazi. The key concept of Na Jia is the attachment of the Na Jia stem to the particular trigram. Na Jia stem is the ally and the follower of its trigram. When knowing that, one can connect the situations in the Bazi chart with the ally relationship between the particular trigram and its Na Jia.

Bazi and Na Jia

For example: we have Bing and Ding stems and Wu branch in the pillars. The strong fire of Li is present in this chart. This fire will have a good relationship with Ji stem, because Ji stem follows the fire of Li. If the fire is too strong, Ji earth will probably be of little help in the reducing of its power.  If you have Hai- Mao- Wei trinity with strong wood, this wood belongs to the trigram Zhen and Geng stem is friend of Zhen. So, if your wood is too strong, Geng metal will be probably of moderate help because it will be a little bit reluctant to cut the trees. Hai- Mao- Wei trinity, however, is less connected to Zhen then Jia, Mao and Yi group. So Geng will still be usable. If you have Chen and Si together and also some wood in the chart, this is the wood connection with Xun and Xun makes Xin metal for its ally. So, Xin metal will not be so usable to control the excess of the wood. If there is a lot of Wei branches in the pillars, this is strongly connected with Kun palace and the element of earth. If there is Yi stem in the pillars, this stem will be probably quite unusable for controlling the excess earth, because Yi stem is a loyal friend of the Kun palace.

All these can be used ONLY at the secondary level of analysis. It can be used for fine tuning. Bear in mind:

  • Mountains of particular trigram are more connected to this trigram than San he and San hui (those with the central branch belonging to the trigram). San he and San hui are more dispersed and also carry other influences. Mountains activate stronger alliance between Na Jia and its trigram and San he/ San hui can activate only a weaker alliance.
  • If trigram’s mountains are not found in a cluster, Na Jia effect will also be weaker.
  • San he must include central branch in this approach because this central branch is a part of trigram’s mountains. So, if you have only Hai and Wei and no Mao in the chart, there is almost no activation of trigram Zhen.
  • Chen – Si, Wei – Shen, Xu- Hai and Chou – Yin mountains activate only weaker alliance between Na Jia and the trigram, because the central trigram can’t be found in Bazi. These branches MUST be found together in the pillars (neighbors).
  • If the stem of Na Jia is quite strong in the chart and has the controling or weakening relationsip with the useful element, for example, there will not be strong Na Jia alliance and the stem will still attack the controlled element (controling relationship like fire controling metal, etc.) or drain the element (like earth drains fire, etc)… For example: if one has Jia, Mao and Yi in the pillars, trigram Zhen is activated and geng metal serves as its Na Jia. But if the same pillars have strong metal presence in the chart like Geng Shen pillar with the support from the season,  Geng metal will be just a little bit less sharp and dominant and it will still attack the Jia wood.







Four Pillars (Bazi) and Residency

(Text in brown was added on 2018/03/06)

While the residency, home, courtyard and garden are common object of fengshui practice, Bazi can offer some relations, too. Parts of one’s home and parcel can be found in the basic four pillars. Basic criteria are determined by left and right side of the pillars, heavenly stems and earth branches, innate meaning of four pillars according to Yi Jing and symbolic connection between the pillars with Officer, Resource, Sibling, Output and Wealth stars.

Here are the basic traits according to the left and right sides of the pillars and upper and lower sides of the pillars:

Locations in Bazi

Using this table, one should give priority to HS: EB relation, while left: right (inner: outer) is only of secondary nature. Because day stem is the most exposed stem, one can find that Facing energy is very strong at the day stem. As month branch with the season is the hidden backup of the chart, this can be viewed as the Mountain.

The connection between the eight parts of the Bazi and one’s home with surroundings is as follows:

Bazi Locations-Residency

If we add information from the first and the second table, we can use day stem as Facing and month branch as the Mountain. As the flowers and trees are connected with wood, the year pillar has second most exposed (yang and fire!) stem belongs to flying or rising energy of wood and year branch is Kun, belonging to earth and reptilian energy. So, the year pillar is flying or rising reptilian, the Dragon. It isn’t  the clasical metal reptilian of the westerns world (entities, which are blowing fire and terrorise the people), but subtle symbolic creature. Looking at the second table and the hour pillar, one can find water (but also metal) energy both in stem and branch of this pillar. So, we get the following table with basic Fengshui symbolism:


From the oldest days of Fengshui four mythological creatures of Chinese constellations have been used in Fengshui. They are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermilion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Turtle of the North. Right side of pillars is eastern part (the beginning of life, sun and moon rising) and belongs to wood and Azure Dragon. Left side of the pillars is western part (ending of life, sun and moon setting) and it is connected with metal and with White tiger. Central upper side is visible and yang, connected with fire and red, so it represents Vermilion bird. Central lower part is connected with hidden, dark and protected and it is connected with water and Black turtle. So, these four animals can also be found in the four pillars:

White tiger Vermilion Bird Vermilion Bird Azure Dragon
White tiger Black Turtle Black Turtle Azure Dragon

I was also informed, that two central parts of the pillars should have the opposite meanings. The facing star is connected with water and the sitting star is connected with mountain, earth. The day stem is Yi Jing location of Kan, the water, while earth branches represent the Earth and day branch represents Li, the fire, the element of Vermilion Bird and the element, which supports the Earth element. So, better correlation should be:

White tiger Black Turtle Black Turtle Azure Dragon
White tiger Vermilion Bird Vermilion Bird  Azure Dragon

I am thankful for this information. (The text in blue was added on 2016/03/11).   

At the end I would like to warn you, that Bazi is not a neccessary Fengshui tool. It can add some insights to the Fengshui practitioners. And this goes both ways: Fengshui principle of 24 mountains, for example, can be used as secondary rule concerning one’s health, profession, emotions etc. Directions from the 24 mountains and Bagua can be used for Bazi help as secondary tool (on the tertiary level even four directional zones of branches such as Yin-Mao-Chen for wood can be used). Weak metal person, for example, can be advised to make long walks in the western or north-western direction.

From the Fengshui perspective Bazi can be used as secondary, tertiary… tool for making the picture clearer, too. For example: if conflict between two elements are found both in Bazi and Flying stars, one should be very cautious. People can use useful god of Bazi to find out good directions, but others can use Bazhai or something else. There are many different views among the practitioners of Fengshui about the usage of colors, directions and shapes of the favorable Bazi element in the Fengshui context. While purists dislike these approaches, practitioners of non-classical Fengshui even use figurines of Chinese zodiac and many other placebo “cures”.  Whatever is the true, I just want to show you, that some Fengshui concepts have correlations with Bazi chart, too.

Have a nice trip in the land of Bazi!



Bazi: Four Pillars of Destiny and Health


    In Bazi or Four pillars of Destiny there are some general rules how to interpret health issues in one’s chart:

  • if the energy flow in the chart is weak, one should expect problems;
  • bad luck cycles are connected with health issues or health risks;
  • if two or more elements are missing or extremely weak, the chart is out of balance (especially standard charts);
  • bear in mind, that all standard charts must have the balance in the temperature of the chart. If this is not the case, the chart is more prone to sickness;
  • strong standard charts have more possibility for acute illness, while weak standard charts have more possibility to develop chronic diseases. Bear in mind that this is not a strict rule;
  • check out which element is the weakest and which element is the strongest in the chart. These two are connected with health issues or health risks;
  • clashes and penalties could be connected with health issues and accidents. At the time when all basic pillars are clashed, this is considered to be very dangerous for one’s health, because all the foundation is ruined or damaged;
  • fan yin (clash between heavenly stems and between earth branches of two pillars) is connected with accidents and health issues;
  • fu yin (two identical pillars, i.e. pillars with same heavenly stems and between earth branches) can be connected with health issues, but not necessary;
  • Sword star (Yang Ren) in the charts is clashed or Sword star meets Qi Sha deity- the Sword star is moving then and this could cause injuries, accidents, attacks and surgery;
  • Empty branches (Void branches) could be connected with health issues of the element, stem or branch, connected with the concept of Void (Kong);
  • Search for cultural and personal aspects (access to medical treatment, access to shamanic healing, exercising, dancing, practicing yoga or qigong, living a moral life…)- all these aspects could help to maintain or restore one’s health.

Every element is connected with some special body parts and diseases.

a. five elements body


Each stem has its own connection with body parts and diseases, too. Bear in mind that “main body parts II.” should probably be used ONLY in the quite balanced charts (this information was not tested by me, so be careful). Yi jing body parts (parts II. and III.) should be used as side information only– these massages have more validity when they come in cluster. For example, if there are Bing, Ding, Wu and Si in the chart and their energy is annoying to one’s Day master, one should expect problems with heart and eyes and if there is too little water in the chart, there could be problem with high blood pressure, too.

a. stems and health


Each branch is connected with some body parts. Yi jing body parts (parts II. and III.) should be used as side information only- these massages have more validity when they come in cluster. There is good visual representation of stems and branches with body parts- here.

a. branches and health


  • Wood attacks personal earth element: lips deformation or nose shape deformation;
  • Personal wood is attacking the earth: metabolic issues;
  • Pillar with wood over the earth: moles, birth marks;
  • Earth counterattack the wood: destroying optimism, depression;
  • JIA-WU stems: chest, lung, traffic accidents;
  • YI-JI stems: lower abdomen, breast area;
  • Fire attack on personal metal: brain problems, probable headaches, probable hearing disorders, blood disease, heart and lung disease;
  • Personal fire attacking the metal: hemorrhoids;
  • BING-GENG stems- fever, tongue;
  • Any fire attack on Geng: lungs, head, fever;
  • DING-XIN stems- teeth, tongue;
  • Too much earth and too little metal: weak immune system;
  • Earth attacking the water: gastro-intestinal disorders, food poisoning, weak immune system;
  • Personal earth is attacking the water: reproductive organs, sexual diseases;
  • WU-REN stems: if Wu is stronger, problems with reproductive organs, possible infertility. If Ren is stronger, traffic accidents, accidents with the body, reproductive organs, gynecological disorders;
  • JI-GUI stems and Ji in any water on general: poisoning, sexual diseases, possible infertility;
  • Weak personal metal, attacked by the fire or counter-attacked by wood: hemorrhoids;
  • Metal attack on wood: bones, tendons, back and hips, liver and gall bladder, depression and suicidal moments;
  • Pillar with metal over the wood: leg problems;
  • Personal metal element attacking the wood: liver and gall bladder problems;
  • Personal wood element attacked by the metal: bone, spine disease;
  • Any imbalance between wood and metal: accidents, possibility of headaches, spine, bones and tendons disease, limbs disease;
  • GENG-JIA stems: head, lung problems, possibility of traffic accident or accidents with sharp objects;
  • XIN- YI stems: head, if there are many YI stems and only little of XIN, this can be connected with migraines;
  • Weak metal and weak water elements: weak immune system;
  • Water attacking the fire: vision problems, high blood pressure, depression;
  • Too many water rotten and uproots the wood: destroying optimism, so mental issues are possible;
  • Any imbalance between the water and fire: vision problems, heart diseases;
  • Too much fire, too little water OR too much fire consuming the wood: danger of insanity, depression or suicidal moments, danger of various mental issues, possible high blood pressure;
  • REN-BING stems: forehead, eyes, blood, blood pressure if other signs;
  • GUI-DING stems: very probable high blood pressure, possible heart and blood disease;
  • A lot of GUI stem: good vision, good hearing.

  • YIN-SI-SHEN penalty: heartache, chest pain, “heart” pain in the left arm, heart attack, stroke, some forms of cancer, could also be connected with limbs and motion problems. If fire is unfavorable, there are bigger possibilities of health risk.
  • WEI-XU-CHOU penalty: sciatic pain, digestion problems, some forms of cancer. If earth is unfavorable, there are bigger possibilities of health risk.
  • MAO-ZI penalty: lower back, problems with reproductive organs, feet. If water is unfavorable, there are bigger possibilities of health risk.
  • YOU self-penalty: sexual disease, blood disease, could be connected with alcohol. But if metal is favorable, there will probably be no problems.
  • CHEN self-penalty: throat, chest in the front, shoulders, head, brains, skin. But if the main active element (earth, wood or water, depends) in Chen is favorable, there will probably be no problems.
  • WU self-penalty: head, brains, heart, eyes, mental issues, possible blood pressure. But if fire is favorable, there will probably be no problems.
  • HAI self- penalty: ankle, feet, head, scrotum. But if main active element (water or wood, depends) is favorable, there will probably be no problems.
  • SI-SHEN: chest pain, traffic accidents, arms
  • YIN-SHEN: headaches, limbs, traffic accidents
  • MAO-YOU: lung and throat, accidents with sharp objects
  • CHEN-XU: lung and chest, accidents from building /structure collapse, accidents from avalanche and earthquakes, upper and lower part of the body are imbalanced, weakening the immune system.
  • SI-HAI: blood, face, blood pressure if other signs, traffic accidents, falling accident
  • WU-ZI: brain, blood pressure if other signs, accidents with bleeding
  • WEI-CHOU: spleen and digestion, accidents from building /structure collapse, accidents from avalanche

GUAN (OFFICER STARS)head, brains, nerves, meridians. Guan has possibility to attack the day master. This is why Guan is connected with weakening the immune system, causing stress and mental issues and it is also connected with the shortening of one’s lifespan. ZHENG GUAN is more connected with chronic diseases, while QI SHA has more to do with acute diseases, accidents, injuries and poisons. Problems come either from the personal element (element of Day master) and from excessive element of the Officers. If strong Officers destroy weak Seals (Yin), the element of the Seal should also be expected to be connected with illness. Are there any cures for strong officers in the chart? One possibility is that there are Seal stars to prevent such an attack. The other possibility are Shi Shang deities, which can control and regulate strong Officers.

There is a special structure, called “Qi Sha and Zheng Guan intermingling”. This means that both Zheng Guan and Qisha are found in the heavenly stems and the element of Officer is rooted also in the earth branches. Other solution is that only Zheng Guan is in heavenly stem, but Qisha is still found in the earth branches. Basic rule for “Qi Sha and Zheng Guan intermingling” is that Officers are strong in such a chart. Such situation gives weak constitution, fears, stress, weak immune system, possibility for physical diseases and for mental issues.  Woman could be raped or could be with many men. Man could have a weird sexuality.

YIN (SEAL STARS). Seal is the energy, which is feeding the personal element. They are connected with food, digestion and breathing, heart and blood. PIAN YIN is also connected with shoulders. Specially PIAN YIN could be connected with poisons, drugs and alcohol. When Seals are weak, personal element has too little support and this can cause health issues. Specially when there are strong Guan/Officer stars, attacking personal element. The other danger, coming from the Seals is situation with too many Seals. This is called “Too many caring mothers destroyed the child”. Too many of Seals will attack the personal element instead of feeding it. This bring illness to the chart, connected with weaken personal element and too strong element of the Seals. Too many wood for example, would destroy personal fire. In this case health issue would be connected both with weak personal fire and too strong wood of the Seals. Too strong Seals can also be connected with mental issues and with too vivid dreams.

BI JIE (SIBLING STARS). Sibling stars are connected with limbs and bones. JIE CAI could be connected with spine, too. If Day master is strong, Siblings are also connected with infectious diseases. Too strong Siblings affect the immune system of the father or the immune system of man’s girlfriend/wife. Day master itself is also connected with heart and brain.

SHI SHANG (OUTPUT STARS). They are connected with skin, metabolism, eyesight, throat and voice, with reproductive organs (specially women’s). If Output stars are too weak and DM is strong, the energy will accumulate in Siblings and DM, causing mental pressure or even depression. Output stars can regulate too strong Officers. SHI SHEN is the most important, because dangerous Qi Sha is controlled by it. Some say that Shi Shen is the sign of longevity. Strong Shi Shen is also connected with obesity. In situation where there is weak ZHENG GUAN attacked by the strong SHANG GUAN, one is prone to chronic diseases, in this situation immune system of woman’s boyfriend/husband is also attacked.

CAI (WEALTH STARS). They are connected with legs and blood, but PIAN CAI is also connected with one’s head and nerves. For men sexual organs are represented by the Wealth element, too. If too strong Cai attacks the Seals, this weaken one’s immune system, but at the same time Wealth stars can destroy immune system of one’s mother.


Four pillars could be connected with the body as described in the following pictures. When we know where the weak or strong element is located, we could find additional indicators of health issues, looking at the pictures below. If there is clash between Si and Hai in day and month branch, for example, and the fire is your favorite and weak element, you should expect problems with small intestine, buttocks or thigh, because day branch (in standing and lying position) is connected with hips, thigh, buttocks and belly, while fire is connected with small intestine, buttocks and thigh. If Jia stem in the year pillar is too strong, the energy in the head is out of balance. Year pillar is connected with the head (lying position) and Jia stem is also connected with the head.




AIDS is autoimmune disease. It is connected with imbalance in the water element. Water is connected with reproductive organs and “genetic power” (jing, kundalini). All sexual diseases, causing inflammations or imbalance between hidden and visible, are connected with water, but also with fire. Many cases can be shown that AIDS is actually disease of water and fire disbalance.

CANCER: Too strong and unfavorable element could be connected with cancer of the organs, belonging to this element. Unfavorable element, destroying the good picture, can cause cancer, connected with its organs. If metal element, for example, is not favorable for follow the wood type chart, there can be disease in the organ, connected with wood. If metal element attacks wood as the most favorable element, the disease can be connected with both elements, too.  So, cancer can be connected with any element! Because cells are ruled by the earth, earth element is more suspect to develop cancer disease. Unfavorable earth combinations are: strong earth with fire support, weak earth with wood attack or earth attacking the water. Cancer is also a hidden disease, which develops slowly, based on long time stress or negative influences. This is also the story of penalties.  So, metabolic and skin cancer can be connected with Wei-Xu-Chou penalty. Yin-Si-Shen penalty can also be connected with some cancer forms (oxygen disfunction) and Zi-Mao penalty can be connected with reproductive organs. Structures “Qi Sha and Zheng Guan intermingling” and “Too many caring mothers destroyed the child” can also cause long term stress, leading to cancer diseases.

DIABETES: diabetes is connected with earth element on general. Earth is connected with sugar and pancreas, while fire is connected with sugar as a form of energy. So, strong production of sugar is connected both with earth and fire element in day pillar or month branch. But pancreas is also connected with hormones and consequently with the element of water. Crucial area are day stem and month branch, because they represent location of pancreas in the body. One should expect picture with a lot of earth and fire in day stem or month branch and very weak water element present in the chart. Preferable branches are Si, Wu and Wei, because they offer both the fire and earth element. It is interesting that typical diabetes chart is connected with Bing-Geng (or Shen-Si) clash and often also with Geng or Bing personal element. Geng (it is also hidden in Shen branch) is connected with the navel area, including pancreas and so it is logical to find Geng/Shen and the conflict between fire (sugar production) and Geng/Shen in the charts of diabetic people.

EYES: too strong or too weak wood, but also too strong or too weak fire. Imbalance between fire and water can also be connected with eyes. Too weak Output element could also be connected with poor eyesight. Very strong Gui is said to give good eyesight.

GUMS: Gums (mouth) are connected with earth element and this element can be destroyed by wood, when fire is missing. Too strong earth with fire support is the other option for gums issues. Massage of gums (with tongue and brush) help the weak earth under the attack of wood.

HAIR DISEASES: the skin is metal and earth, while the hair are water and wood. Too weak water element will expose wood to metal and earth. This can cause losing hairs. Too strong fire and too weak water can also cause the same situation: fire will weaken the hairs (water and wood) and it will probably give power to the skin (earth). Too weak water and metal represent weak immune system and aging, so this combination means whitening of hair and/or losing hair at the same time. When water is too strong, hair will not be attacked by the skin, so they will not fall out. But too cold pillars can still cause whitening of the hairs.

HEADACHE: there can be multiple reasons for headaches. Too much Officers or too strong Pian Cai can cause headache. Too much wood or fire can cause headache, too. Strong water attacks weak fire and there is no strong wood in the chart. Too strong earth element can cause migraines. When fire, wood or earth attacks metal, there can be headache. Clashes Yin-Shen, Chen-Xu and Si-Hai can cause headaches. Three penalty Yin-Si-Shen is also dangerous for headaches. Too strong Wu branches or favorable Wu branch under attack can also mean headaches. Concerning the four basic pillars, head is represented by the year pillar, month stem and day stem.

LIMBS, ALZHEIMER, PARKINSON: limbs and motion abilities are connected with wood and earth element. When strong metal exhausts the earth and attacks the wood, one has danger to get limb injury or motion disease. When there is strong disfunction between wood, earth and metal, the situation is pretty the same. Too strong wood for example, can counter-attack the metal and also attack the earth. Suspected pillars are Wu Yin, Ji Mao, Geng Yin, Xin Mao. All relations from Yin-Si-Shen can also be connected with limbs and motion problems.

MENSTRUAL/GYNECOLOGICAL PROBLEMS: Too weak wood element and imbalance between the wood, earth and water at the same time. Or too strong wood (bleeding).

MENTAL ISSUES: there are many factors, connected with mental issues. Mental issues are connected with stress and stress is mostly connected with too strong and unfavorable Officers, which brings in fears and pressure. Most dangerous situation is called “Qi Sha and Zheng Guan intermingling”. If Seals are too strong and one get unfavorable “Too many caring mothers destroyed the child” structure, this can also be connected with stress and pressures, but also to hallucinations or too vivid dreams. Too strong or too weak fire element is another important factor of stress and distorted sensations. When personal element is too strong and there is too weak Output, inner pressure can lead to depression and to the other mental issues. Too strong Output on the other side causes losing the energy- the chart with energy minimum is prone to depression. Too strong earth element causes static behavior and this can lead to mental issues, too. Wood (and fire) is connected with initial optimism, and if damaged, can cause depression (strong fire eats all the wood, metal attacks the wood- specially Geng attacking Jia or Shen-Yin clash, too strong water rotten and uproot the wood). Other interesting issues: Jia Shen pillar, Bing Shen pillar, too strong Wu branch, unfavorable metal directional unity, unfavorable Wu-Xu half union.

SPINE AND BACK are connected with water and wood element, but also with Jie Cai and with Hai, Shen and most important: Wei. Other branches with minor influences are: Zi, Chou, Yin, Mao, Chen and Si. Earth branches in general are connected with the spine. Spine is also connected with hour pillar (inner parts).

TEETH: teeth are connected with metal and water elements. If both elements are weak, one would lose the teeth quickly. Weak metal with earth attacking the water: one gets more cavities or broken teeth. Too strong wood and weak water and metal: teeth are losing their structure: cavities or broken tooth. Ding- Xin clash, Si-You half union and Si-Hai clash are all connected with teeth. Metal directional union (Shen-You-Xu) is also connected with teeth and if this union is unfavorable, one can expect to have teeth issue.  If there are both Geng and Xin together with one or two other indicators in the chart (Ding, Si, You, Xu, Hai) and the metal is not favorable, one can expect to have teeth issue.

THYROIDS: all the hormones are connected with the water element. But thyroids are connected to wood and fire elements, too. Weak water with weak fire can be connected to hypo-thyroidism, too little water and too many wood (hyper-thyroidism and possible high blood pressure), strong water (hyper-thyroidism and possible high blood pressure), weak water, wood and fire (hyper- thyrodism and possible low blood presssure), moderately strong water attack weak fire (hypo-thyroidism and possible high blood pressure).

Heavenly Amnesty Nobleman

Heavenly Amnesty Nobleman/Heavenly Pardon Nobleman (天赦貴人Tiānshè guìrén) or Heavenly Relief Nobleman (天恕貴人 Tiānshù guìrén; Heaven Forgiveness Nobleman, Heaven Leniency Nobleman, Leniency Star) is a special type of stars, used in Bazi (Four Pillars of Destiny). Heavenly Amnesty Nobleman is represented by the whole pillar according to the specific season:

JIA ZI in winter season;

WU YIN in spring season;

JIA WU in summer season;

WU SHEN in autumn season.

So, if one is born during winter and one’s day pillar is Jia Zi, then one has Heavenly Amnesty Nobleman. Other pillars have much weaker effect of the Leniency Star. Heavenly Amnesty Nobleman gives you success from limitations and legal and other problems. With this star you can overcome most of opposition, adversary, limitations… and you will have support from others and opportunity to excel and develop. You can also avoid to be punished for some not so serious crime or your sentence will be very mild. The star is connected also with successful and blessed life.

Most of the whole pillar Shensha are not used in modern Bazi, because their inner logic is not so obvious as Ten Gods concept or as basic Shensha are. The basic logic of this star is in the symbolism of Jia Zi. Zi month is the bottom of the year. In this greatest darkness there is new beginning (yang wood, Jia), the new cycle of life is going to free itself of winter and to become successful later on.  The 60 JiaZi cycle can be corelated with the whole year. Summer solstice is symbolically connected with 31st pillar of Jia Wu. Between the solstices there is Chinese New Year in Yin month. Look at Yin around the 16th pillar of JiaZi cycle. This is Wu Yin (15th pillar). It corresponds to the 45th pillar of Wu Shen in the autumn.
