This paper continues to examine the use of the 3 sets of Earth Penetrating Dragon, hereinafter called the equal division 60D. XinFa 新法 proud of having knew the secret of these 60D. While the GuFa 古法 thinks that it is absurd to "pull down your pants to fart". The 3 rings of 60D is never to be found in the modern SanHe LuoPan. The only traces left was the 60D attached to the Human Plate 人盤. It was 'extinct' since. Later XinFa 新法 morphed it into the early SanYuan School. These 3 rings of the 60D paved the method now, known as the 64 SanYuan DaGua.

三元龍虎門 - SANYUAN DRAGON TIGER DOOR
紅鸞水法 - HONGLUAN WATER METHOD
穿山透地 - PENETRATING TIGER AND RESURFACING DRAGON
To appreciate as to why XinFa 新法 uses the Tiger as the Body and the Dragon as the Application, we have to revisit Zhang JiuYi's 張九儀 words again: -
CHINESE ASTRONOMY 101 - OBSCURE HEAVEN 渾天
Obscure Heaven 渾天 is referred to as the "Egg-like hypothesis" where the earth is surrounded by a “Heaven” sphere rotating over it. The celestial bodies are attached to the “Heaven” sphere. To demarcate the static dimensions of the Heaven, Heavenly stars were employed. There were generally 2 sets Heavenly stars, Group of stars within the ZiWei Enclosure and Group of stars within the Equatorial Belt, known as 28 asterism 廿八天星.
To demarcate the dynamic dimensions of the Heaven, these 7 governors 七政 were employed. They are the 5 planets, namely, Mercury 水星, Venus 金星, Mars 火星, Jupiter 木星, Saturn 土星, Sun日 and Moon 月. Collectively, these are the early Geocentric Model of the Obscure Heaven 渾天. These 7 governors 七政 move while the stars are fixed. They are called the “celestial - palaces” 星宮. Observer from earth created devises such as armillary sphere 渾儀 to “measure the Heaven”. Time master 時師 morph it into the LuoPan and thus called Heavenly Ruler 量天尺 or the outer astronomical rings.
This is what it meant by Obscure Heaven opens the precious mirror 渾天開寶鏡.
PLATE LINE 盤線
Plate and Line 盤線, is a jargon comprises of 2 words, the Plate 盤 which is referring to the face of the LuoPan and the Line 線 which is the string attached to the LuoPan. Collectively, it is a verb meaning pressing against the string so as to “lock” the plate of the LuoPan from moving. Only by virtue of such, the Precious Mirror 寶鏡 can be opened, a romantic jargon of reading the LuoPan.
SANYUAN 60 DRAGON 三元60龍
Each time when you Plate Line 盤線 (assuming it is a verb) the 60D, you will obtain 3 sets of Hexagrams comprising, Heaven Yuan Gua 天元本卦, Earth Yuan Gua 地元本卦 and Obscure Heaven Gua 渾天本卦. This technique is known as obtaining 3 kinds of Gua 卦取三般. These 3 kinds of Gua 三般卦 will give the following readings: -
1. Earth Plate – Portend占 the Vein and the Meridian
2. Human Plate – Portend占 the Effect of the Embrace to the Meridian
3. Heaven Plate – Portend占 the Effect of the Water Mouth to the Meridian
OBSCURE HEAVEN NAJIA 渾天納甲
The moment you obtain the 3 kinds of Gua 卦取三般, every Hexagram can tell a complete story in itself. The science and art of this is called – Heaven and Earth NaJia 天地納甲. Details can be read from the followings: -
1. - DISCOURSE IN HEAVEN EARTH NAJIA YINYANG
2. - DISCOURSE IN HEAVEN EARTH NAJIA YINYANG 2
However, when the NaJia 納甲 method is assigned to the Obscure Heaven Gua 渾天本卦, for some SanHe school, it is called, Obscure Heaven NaJia 渾天納甲 – superficially to assign the 60D 透地龍 for the respective GuaYao 卦爻 and to portend 占 the following lucks 運: -
1. Son, Father, Wealth and Officer - 子父財官
2. Salaried Horse and Noble People - 祿馬貴人
3. Golden Water and the Sun Moon - 金水日月
4. 3 Mysterious and the 4 Auspicious -三奇四吉
Each and every methods to define the Luck 運 itself is Rocket Science beyond the scope of this paper. In a nutshell, it is how you blend QiMen and SanHe into a collective whole.
TO BE CONTINUE, MAYBE…
This paper attempt to examine the “birth” of SanYuan. It is a common understanding that SanYuan is the offspring of SanHe but very little is known of the bridge of how SanYuan is born out of SanHe. Both mainstream schools share closely knitted fundamentals where the 60 JiaZi, notably the hallmark of SanHe, at one point became the 64 Gua, the hallmark of SanYuan. Historically speaking, YangGong, being the forefather of KanYu only has one school. As time passes by, schism arises and this One School is separated into GuFa Pai 古法派 or Old School and XingFa Pai 新法派 or New School. Unlike the former, the later has been generally known as SanHe. This later school includes many other forms of techniques and methodologies not found in GuFa 古法 to a degree it is so confusing and complicated that a new form of KanYu is consolidated, not invented, and was branded as SanYuan, predominantly the birth of the 64 DaGua Ring 大卦盤.
Looking at the revival of XingFa 新法 predominantly practice in HongKong, the use of 72 Penetrating Mountain Dragon 穿山龍 and 60 Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍 are at large. Some XingFa 新法 school notably the Liu JiangDong sect adopted technical jargons that are unique and seldom heard of before. A glossary of terminologies are as the followings: -
1. 6 Yao NaJia 六爻纳甲 is Obscure Heaven NaJia 渾天纳甲
2. Penetrating Mountain Dragon 穿山龍 is Penetrating Mountain Tiger 穿山虎
3. Principal Gua 本卦 is Obscure Heaven Gua 渾天卦
4. LuoPan 羅盤 is Precious Mirror 寶鏡
Many modern academies especially one in Bolehland called, the Money squeezing Academy of Chinese metaphysics (MsAocm) cannot reconcile the theories and application behind the 60 Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍. It just show that the level of FengShui understanding of the “Master Trainer” is so much inferior when he attempted to bluff his way through module – 03, teaching this specific methodology. In essence, besides examining the “birth” of SanYuan in a larger context, this paper for the first time and in a narrower context, discloses the intricate work of Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍 and its relation to the 60 Obscure Heaven Gua 渾天卦 in English.
Continue from these two writings: -
穿山透地 - PENETRATING TIGER AND RESURFACING DRAGON
紅鸞水法 - HONGLUAN WATER METHOD
We have to revisit the poem by Zhang JiuYi 張九儀 as such: -
Contemplate this - First observe penetrating mountain tiger, Directional moving earth surfacing dragon… New Method 新法 termed the commonly called Penetrating Mountain Dragon 穿山龍 as Penetrating Tiger 穿山虎. This is an attempt to differentiate between Penetrating Mountain Tiger 穿山虎 and Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍. The terms – Dragon 龍 and Tiger 虎 have to be used in pair. That is why it is said that first, use the Penetrating Mountain Tiger 穿山虎 to determine the True Incoming Dragon 真龍入首. Then, to seek out the true Vein 龍脉 use Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍. Dragon 龍 and Tiger 虎 have to mutually match just like the spirit 魂 and the soul 魄. These relationships between the Dragon 龍 and the Tiger 虎 are based on the 5 NaYin elemental interplay 納音五行生克.
Honestly speaking, it sounds fantastic in theory but faulty in application, especially in YangZhai 陽宅. To say, it is applicable in YinZhai 陰宅, is also very force fitting. The operative word, is this term - true vein 龍脉, what does it actually measure and how do you measure in YangZhai 陽宅 condominium?
Complications come in the following passage - Obscure Heaven opens the precious mirror 渾天開寶鏡. Precious Mirror 寶鏡 is a term, New Method 新法 use to mean – the LuoPan 羅盤 (Gosh, can’t they think of something simpler?). Obscure Heaven 渾天, on another hand, is something even more complex…
First, it refers to its connection with the entire 24 JieQi 二十四節氣.
1. Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍 comprises of 30 pairs of JiaZi 甲子.
2. Each JiaZi 甲子 supposing, controls 1 Hou 候.
3. However, there are 6 pairs controlling 2 Hou 候 each.
4. Thus, made up the entire 72 Hou 候 of the 24 JieQi 二十四節氣.
That is where the 60 Dragon 龍 has a closely knitted connection with the 72 Tiger 虎 through these 72 Hou 候.
Second, it refers to its connection with the Hexagram to form the 60 Principle Gua 本卦. As a result, there are 4 rings of 30 pairs of JiaZi 甲子 with its assigned hexagram as the following: -
1. Obscure Heaven Gua 渾天卦, whereby JiaZi 甲子 raised Kan Gua 坎卦.
2. GuiZang 歸藏, whereby JiaZi 甲子 raised Shen Gua 頣卦.
3. LianShan 連山, whereby JiaZi 甲子 raised Xie Gua 解卦.
4. ZhouYi 周易, whereby JiaZi 甲子 raised Bi Gua 比卦.
These are the predecessors to the commonly known 64 DaGua Ring 大卦盤.
HEAVEN YUAN 天元 – LIANSHAN PRINCIPAL HEXAGRAM 連山本卦
LianShan 連山 is the oldest form of Gua arrangement, believed to have been from the Xia Dynasty through the scripture of LianShan, now extinct. LianShan 連山 is pictorially mountain above mountain, represented by the Gen Gua 艮卦 nested within the Qian sector. Gen takes over Qian – the same arrangement to what is known as the Early Heaven sequence. Therefore, it is also known as the Heaven Yuan Principal Hexagram Order 天元本卦. In the order of the 60 Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍, it takes the HongLuan JiaZi arrangement 紅鸞甲子, where JiaZi 甲子 raised Xie Gua 解卦. In some school, this 60 Heaven Yuan LianShan Principal Gua Penetrating Earth Dragon 天元連山本卦透地龍 is an extension to Lai BuYi 賴布衣 Human Plate Middle Needle, RenPan ZhongZhen 人盤中針.
HUMAN YUAN 人元 – ZHOUYI PRINCIPAL HEXAGRAM 周易本卦
ZhouYi 周易 is the “latest” form of Gua arrangement, believed to have been created by Zhou WenWang 周文王, that we commonly called YiJing . ZhouYi 周易 is modelled against the Later Heaven sequence with Qian Gua as the principal Gua, with 4 cardinal Gua removed namely Li, Kan, Zhen and Dui. Because ZhouYi 周易 is modelled against the natural order, it is also known as the Human Yuan Principal Hexagram Order 人元本卦. In the order of the 60 Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍, it also takes the HongLuan JiaZi arrangement 紅鸞甲子, where JiaZi 甲子 raised Bi Gua 比卦. Surprisingly, this is not use in KanYu. Now, you know the pedigree of “Master Trainer” from Money squeezing Academy of Chinese metaphysics (MsAocm) of Bolehland teaching ZhouYi 周易 as the principal Hexagram for 64 DaGua 大卦. Where he gets this idea from?
EARTH YUAN 地元 – GUIZANG PRINCIPAL HEXAGRAM 歸藏本卦
GuiZang 歸藏 is the second oldest form of Gua arrangement, believed to have been from the Shang Dynasty, now extinct. GuiZang 歸藏 means return to the concealment or containment, represented by the Kun Gua nested within the Qian sector. Kun takes over Qian – the same arrangement to what is known as the Middle Heaven sequence. Therefore, it is also known as the Earth Yuan Principal Hexagram Order 地元本卦. In the order of the 60 Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍, it takes the HongLuan JiaZi arrangement 紅鸞甲子, where JiaZi 甲子 raised Shen Gua 頣卦. In some school, this 60 Earth Yuan GuiZang Principal Gua Penetrating Earth Dragon 地元歸藏本卦透地龍 is an extension to YangGong Earth Plate, DiPan 地盤.
PENETRATING TIGER AND DRAGON YUAN 穿龍虎元 – OBSCURE HEAVEN PRINCIPAL HEXAGRAM 渾天本卦
Not many people heard of HongLuan JiaZi 紅鸞甲子. Even lesser people know of Obscure Heaven Hexagram 渾天卦. Other contemporary scholars believed that this arrangement were created much later by Zhang JiuYi 張九儀, through his writing such as Earth Principle Penetrating Mountain and Earth True Transmission 地理穿山透地真傳, is the so called - Middle Heaven 中天卦, only known by people of that school. Most of the Hexagrams were repeated and were assigned throughout the 60 Penetrating Earth Dragon 透地龍 taking the Penetrating Mountain JiaZi 穿山甲子 instead, where JiaZi 甲子 raised Kan Gua 坎卦. In some school, this Penetrating Tiger and Dragon Yuan Obscure Heaven Principal Gua Penetrating Earth Dragon 穿龍虎元渾天本卦透地龍 is an extension to YangGong Heaven Plate, TianPan 天盤. Very strange that such was never mentioned in the 3 collections of YangGong classics, wonder if it is really the genuine teaching of YangGong FengShui?
THE THREE YUAN 三元
In conclusion, because ZhouYi 周易 is not used in the art of KanYu, therefore 3 out of 4 rings namely: -
These 3 sets of 60D rings form the foundation of the Great SanYuan 大三元. Later days masters, probably as the first generation of SanYuan schools, restructure these Great SanYuan 大三元 and assigned what is probably known as the LianShan GuiZang Gua 連山歸藏卦 into the Circle and Square Diagram 方圓圖, where it became the basis of the 64 DaGua Ring 大卦盤. Only the Heaven and Earth Plate was shown. There is the “missing” Human Plate of the SanYuan DaGua. The true application is in the “missing” Human Plate of the SanYuan DaGua. This is another story for another time…
TO BE CONTINUE, MAYBE…
PENETRATING MOUNTAIN AND EARTH 穿山透地
This is also sometimes called, Mountain Method 山法.
Penetrating Mountain 穿山, comprises of the word Penetration 穿 or sometimes also referring to as Penetrating Earth 透地. Penetration is a verb meaning forcing a way into or through, in this case a Mountain or Earth. It deals with a force that are pushed through from beneath the earth as the unit measurement of Earth Qi 地氣.
GuoPu’s Burial Classics state: -
In SanHe, 60 Earth Penetrating Dragon 透地龍 and 72 Penetrating Mountain Dragon 穿山龍 are to measure the incoming veins/ incoming dragon.
WATER METHOD 水法
It is a method to evaluate the quality of water. Water here means the exiting water denoted as the “Water Mouth” 水口. It is an assessment of the Water Mouth.
Water method enable one to determine the Formation 局 of a given site through the following mantra (Read HERE for more).
Water Method 水法 is independent from the Mountain Method 山法.
JIAZI DRAGON 甲子龍
SanHe measures Qi as JiaZi 甲子, totalled 30 pairs. Each pair take a unit of NaYin element 納音五行 (Detail read HERE). According to the Book of Burial, every direction has 5 elements. As SanHe measures lateral Qi, every single Branch has 5 elements, totalled 30 pairs. Therefore, each Branch controls 5 JiaZi 甲子, in 2 distinctive orders: -
HongLuan is the arrangement of stem in a static order. Each group of Yang stem shall be led by Jia甲, while the Yin stem shall be led by Yi乙, in a fixed order. In the arrangement of every controlling branches, after Jia is Yi, followed by Jia and Yi and repeat the same. In the 60 JiaZi arrangement, each and every opposite direction of the JiaZi will give you the same NaYin element. This is because only the branch differ but the stem remains the same - Heaven repeat Earth clashes 天伏地反. Location changes but Heaven is unmoved - it is used to measure Heaven Qi.
Penetrating Mountain, however, is takes the arrangement of stem in a dynamic “rotational” order. Each group of Yang stem shall be led by Jia甲 and subsequently rotate among itself. Same is to be said for Yin stem shall be led by Yi乙 and subsequently rotate among itself. in a dynamic order. In the arrangement of every controlling branches, after Jia is Yi, followed by Bing and Ding and repeat the same in a descending order. Penetrating Mountain 穿山 – In the 60 JiaZi arrangement, each and every opposite direction of the JiaZi will not give you the same NaYin element. This is because both the branch and the stem are in total opposite - 天地反吟. Location and Heaven move - it is used to measure Earth Qi.
In the modern LuoPan, these JiaZi are used in the following Rings: -
WHAT IS HONGLUAN JIAZI 紅鸞甲子 ?
What is HongLuan JiaZi 紅鸞甲子 or some may call HongLuan Water Method 紅鸞水法? Here is the explanation…
WHAT IS HONGLUAN JIAZI 紅鸞甲子 - BASED ON 《古今圖書集成》
SO, WHAT IS THE ISSUE?
YangGong may have been the forefather of both SanHe and SanYuan. Within SanHe School itself, known as the gentlemen of GanZhou 赣州, there are 2 antagonistic methods. One called themselves as Old Method 古法 the other, the New Method 新法.
Old Method 古法 do not need to define Mountain Method 山法 or Water Method 水法. Their approach is simple based on two 24 mountain rings. Besides the spot, everything else is measured using the Heaven Plate. New Method 新法 is complex as it also employs other later days grand-master's theories. This school is represented by Hu ShunShen 胡舜申 through his writing – Earth Principle New Methods 地理新法.
The Old Method 古法 School shuns Earth Principle New Methods 地理新法. as it is believed to have been lost. Only a hand copied version was known to have been kept in Korea. The pedigree of this copy is debatable as any FengShui manuscripts deported to alien states outside Imperial Tang are all fabricated false knowledge.
Saying that the late Li DingXin 李定信 doesn't know his stuff is very untrue, not at a theoretical level, as he was also the first who explained the meaning of 3-7, 7-3 gold division by interpolating 240D ring into what is probably known as the 120D 百二龍 that uses the HongLuan 紅鸞 order (Detail read HERE). 72D HongLuan 紅鸞 dragon is utterly rubbish...
ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. ZhaoShen 照神, some called them Direct, Indirect and Sub-direct Spirit principles are the backbone of the Huge SanYuan 大三元, that these conditions must be fulfilled for these techniques to bring results. This is almost liked the True Commandment. However, different schools, different strokes, especially XuanKong schools 玄空派. It was so corrupted these days that we were so familiar with the Flying Star school approach 玄空飛星學, we thought that it is the only true method.
The classic said, “The real key to understand LingShen and ZhengShen is that water is considered prosperous when it is declining and mountain is considered prosperous when it is timely”. Unfortunately, it does not define what water is and what mountain is. Most of the XuanKong schools 玄空派 will take mountain and water almost literary. Mountain is immovable therefore Yin, Water flowing therefore it is Yang. No argument about that. Where there must be mountain, XuanKong schools 玄空派 will advise you to build a building or to put heavy furniture. Where there must be water, XuanKong schools 玄空派 will advise you to build a water feature or to dig a pond. These are also among the pet methods of XuanKong DaGua 玄空大卦.
LOSHU ESTABLISHES DIRECT/INDIRECT 雒書定零正
The first approach – is a fixed pattern based on the LuoShu. It is also known as the Static Plate.
Generally, the LoShu is made out of period 1-9 having the period-5 in the centre. Collectively, period 1-4 is known as the Upper Cycle and period 6-9 is known as the Lower Cycle. What is deemed to be a place to see mountain in the Upper Cycle may change to be a place to see water in the Lower Cycle. The same is true for the place to see water in the Upper Cycle may change to be a place to see mountain in the Lower Cycle. This is called, FengShui forever changing… wonder when it will reach my turn 風水輪流轉, 何時到我家?
Specifically, in Period-8 the ZhengShen 正神 is in the NE-8 GenGua. Because in Period-8, Gen location is timely, therefore vibrant. Overly Yang will not produce. Therefore it cannot see water, which is Yang in nature. It must see mountain, which is Yin in nature. The opposite direction, SW-2 KunGua, is untimely and it is the LingShen 零神 where it should see water, which is Yang in nature to make it vibrant once more. The HeTu of 8 is 3, therefore E-3 is known as ZhaoShen 照神. Because it is untimely, it should see water, which is Yang in nature.
In layman terms, in Period-8 (2004-2024), NE will see prosperity. So much vibrant that the concentration of people will see development of high-rises of high densities in a cramp spaces. High densities and cramp spaces are the signifier of mountain. Because of over population, the opposite SW which is less vibrant would see people expanding outward occupying the “empty” space of SW. This is the signifier of water. The neighbor of SE which is E will also benefited from it – potential growth center, signifier of water. Based on this “layman terms”, do you still see mountain as mountain and water as water?
Wherever you see mountain it denotes, the prosperity has reached its pinnacle and in the progress of declining. Wherever you see water it denotes, the growth potential of that place is picking up and it is going to be the future development for that area. These are the 2 barometers in forecasting the timing of growth of a particular space in SanYuan space time continuum.
THE LITMUS TEST – KLANG VALLEY
Bolehland’s Kuala Lumpur’s prosperity is annexe to the Klang River. It flows from the northeast to the southwest. This river exits through the Klang harbour. Klang has been a town since the 14 century before the tin mining revolution. It was the capital of Selangor in an earlier era prior to the emergence of Kuala Lumpur and the current capital, Shah Alam.
The birth of Kuala Lumpur was due to the water mouth known to be the confluence of Gombak and Klang River as the growth catalyst through the 1820s. By 1950s Kuala Lumpur is already congested.
A new town called Petaling Jaya was born. Petaling Jaya became the satellite town of Kuala Lumpur, as an industrialised township. By 1960s Petaling Jaya itself is congested. More water mouths along the Klang River has been locked by then.
Fast-forward another 30 years, Shah Alam was born. It takes over Petaling Jaya as an industrialised township. Unfortunately Shah Alam has many water mouths unlock. In the midst of expansion, another town is created called Subang Jaya around 1970s, supporting Petaling Jaya. Therefore since the 1980s to 2000, growth centres had been slow reaching the western part of Shah Alam towards Klang itself.
THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING IS IN THE EATING
KL circa 1920s – Period-4. By 1950s Kuala Lumpur is already congested. In Period 5, for the first 10 years it follows Period-4. So, the first 10 years SE-4 would have been congested. SE of KL is Kajang. Unfortunately, Kajang has not been developed since! What about the next 10 years that follows Period-6, NW-6 would be congested? NW of KL is Sungai Buloh. This area is use to be the known as the town for the leprosy because of its seclusion… Reverse engineer, looking at the LingShen 零神, opposite of SE is NW and in fact, both are secluded areas. Sungai Buloh, now being part of PJ prosper around 2000s – Period-8.
PJ circa 1960s – Period 6. NW-6 should have been congested by then, SE-4 should have been the new growth centre. SE of PJ is Puchong and Sri Kembangan. It is true that urban spiralling has reached the SE of PJ, but this only happened in the 1990s when the ex-mining and dumpsite has been reclaimed. Instead it was Subang Jaya, SW of PJ that is booming during the 1970s.
SJ circa 1970s – Period 6. NW-6 should have been congested by then, SE-4 should have been the new growth centre. SE of SJ is Puchong and Sri Kembangan. It is true that urban spiralling has reached the SE of SJ, but this only happened in the 1990s, Period-7. Instead, the W part of PJ proper developed into SA.
SA circa 1990s – Period 7. W-7 should have been congested by then, E-3 should have been the new growth centre. E of SA is PJ, already a congested place.
PutarJaya circa 2000 – Period 8. NE-8 should have been congested by then, SW-2 should have been the new growth centre. SW of KL is Puchong and Sri Kembangan. Instead the government of Bolehland decided to move to PutarJaya which is the S of KL.
The application of Direct/Indirect Spirit or ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. ZhaoShen 照神 based on the current understanding available in the market FAILED miserably in this litmus test. It is NEVER to be applied in this manner... Timeliness is also not meant to be applied in this manner...
The FORTUNE of a place is dependable on its WATER MOUTH. First – look at the water mouth! If it is locked – you PROSPER. If it is not lock – you PAUPER. Prosperity of a place, begins with the river – source of transportation. Where two rivers meet, people from different places would gathered and trade. Trade is the foundation of Prosperity. When trade occur, a market place will exist. Store houses will be built close to the water mouth. These are the “mountain locking the water mouth”. A market place would grow into town and eventually, city.
FengShui theories state, Heaven bestow; Earth receive. The source, stream and the water mouth are the “Blood Vein” of the land. The idea of a “Dragon” is referred to this “blood vein”. Whenever it is locked, a meridian will form. This place will prosper. Every Prosperity is not perpetual. The theory specify a cycle of JiaZi – a Yuan 元, where the 3 Cycles 9 Periods 三元九運 are derived. To be perpetual, the key is in – reactivation, similar to the application of BaZhai 八宅.
The true application of ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. ZhaoShen 照神, are water mouth dependent. LoShu establish Direct Indirect 雒書定零正 already tell you this. LoShu 雒書 is the General Principle of the movements of Rivers. Again - such opens up to another argument called - the Dynamic Plate of ZhenShen 正神. LingShen 零神. This will be yet another story for another time.
OLD SPIRITS TASTE GOOD...
The Spirits Of Mutiara Damansara & Mount Kiara - 29112009
The way the landforms are being crafted with roads, by the days, is astonishing. Where there are roads, there are opportunities. Similarly with the notion of Ling and Zhen Shen or Direct and Indirect Spirit. Very much useful for site selection and to know when a site selected will actually boom. The following tales may knock some sense out of these spirits: -
Prior to 2000, an area known as Kota Damansara was actually called Sungai Buloh. Not a Soul would want to live at this area. Post 2004, saw a mega make over with the enclave of what is now known as Mutiara Damansara. This very location is a sunken landforms embraced by the incoming mountains originated all the ways from Rawang. This location is currently enjoying the boom that the period 8 has brought in exactly at the Southwest location of Kun.
Similarly, on the reverse side of the embrace, an area part of Mount Kiara witnessed the rises of the residential towers, so cluttered, it becomes the so called Direct Spirit. The location is Northeast, Gen. Not so much of commercialization activities at this very location as it is the fringe development radiated from the Mount Kiara town center.
This very case demonstrated that when period 8 comes in, Gen (Northeast) location is being too Yang, it cannot see water. What does it means as being too Yang? Seeing water means really seeing physical water? So this Yang location is called Direct spirit of period 8.
Opposite of period 8 is the Indirect spirit in the Kun (Southwest) location. Being too Yin, it must see water. Yet there is no physical water in Mutiara Damansara! And it is booming by the days. Why?
We have a series of mountain that virtually separate these two locations, not otherwise the highway called Penchala Link would not need to go through the tunnel to link the other sides. As the case demonstrated, where is the location of the center 5? Is there a smaller TaiQi within the larger one? Or a larger TaiQi within a smaller one? Is the water mouth for both areas are locked? Which area is conforming to the direct and indirect spirit and which area are not?
So, instead of putting the spirit in the bottle and be drunken for the whole days, lets keep sober and see things through a different lens. Perhaps we may spot on the spirits one day!
The Question Of Subtleties - 25112009
In view that SanYuan rested on timing. YinYang Qi map is the fundamental of where to locate water and where to locate mountain. All this is term direct and indirect spirit, LingZhen.
2 cycles 8 periods referred to the Heaven Qi. There are only upper and lower cycles. Upper cycle governs period 1, 2, 3 and 4. Lower cycle governs period 6, 7, 8 and 9. There is no period 5. In the 2 cycles 8 periods, each period governs an unequal number of years. Each Yang Yao within the ruling Gua governs 6 years and the Yin Yao within the ruling Gua governs 9 years. For example in the upper cycle of period 1, the governing Gua is Kan Gua. Kan Gua has 2 Yin Yao and 1 Yang Yao. Therefore, the period 1 will last for 24 years.
The absent of period 5 is called the invincible period. It is the igniting element that will propel the cure throughout the 180 years and therefore are known as The SanYuan BuBai. So highly mysterious that it is also annexed to the method of XieZi.
On the other hand, XuanKong DaGua (XKDG) is annexed to the 2 cycles 8 period principle. It is therefore, a Heaven Qi manipulation method befitted as a date selection technique.
Whereas, 3 cycles 9 periods referred to Earth Qi. There are Upper, Middle and Lower Cycles. Upper cycle governs period 1, 2 and 3. Middle cycle governs 4, 5 and 6. Lower cycle governs 7, 8 and 9. Each period governs an equal 20 years. Thus, a cycle consists of 60 years.
One postulation suggests that 5 yellow exist in earth Qi because the 5 yellow is the center of the earth with the operative method rested on AiXing, Leaning Star with the quest to move the center of the Earth in sync with the Heaven Qi.
The Purple White Script, ZiBai Jue, is one of the fragments dislocated from the entire body of knowledge within this SanYuan framework. Similarly so with XuanKong FeiXing (Flying Star), BaZhai (8 Mansions) and LongMen BaDa Ju (Dragon Gate 8 Formations), are just subsets of the entire framework. These piece-meals methods are called, end user methodology.
The pretext state, Heaven has 9 stars, Earth has 8 Gua and Human (Man) has 8 doors. If we see SanYuan as Heaven, Earth and Man, the valid method must encompass of matching the Heaven Qi with the Earth Qi to unlock the gateways within so that the parallel dimensions between the human realm and the supernatural realm is open. Does it sound “hocus-pocus”?
As above so below is an alternative view of how Heaven Qi influences the Earth Qi and in return, how Earth Qi influence Human Being. This postulation is annex to the asterism above influence the gravitational pull that result in having mountains, the solid and rivers, the void shape the landforms that we know today. This is however, a single dimensional point of view.
What that is not explained is at every point on Earth, there is a portal ready to be opened where scripts liked the leaning, expanding, contracting, hugging, replacement are all the essence to open up the portals so that an affinity with the other side is established.
The key to these, again, are the Yi TaiQi that spins in one direction in order to open the Dao TaiQi that spin the reverse order. This is where the understanding of landforms via LingZhen spirit becomes largely important and it is the backbone of the Greater SanYuan.
Ling and Zhen as a principle is static apply for both 2 cycles and 3 cycles respectively. But the dynamic part for Earth Qi is largely governed by landforms. If the theory of as above so below is valid, then the reflections of the landforms must correspond to the asterism as above. It must works in both ways. This is to inform that by plainly accepting XKDG as a date selection without looking the actual star that present and the governing Qi respectively, SanYuan portal will not be opened. This is where results are inconsistent as sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
When we stacked the multi layers of SanYuan AiXing against the dimension of time with the arrangement of the doors, what is present to us is a stacking of multi-dimensional model, where stars lean against one another locking and unlocking the multi dimensional portals.

Why My Spirits Cannot Work - 30062010
We came across the term – TaiJi spot. Others called it by many names such as Heaven’s Heart, center of the TaiJi or simply the threshold of Yin and Yang. In any circumstances it is the first layer of the many FengShui method of applications. Some called it arranging YinYang (Pai YinYang).Failure to establish such may results in the wrong applications of Direct/Indirect Spirits, the back bone of the huge SanYuan principles and arranging the dragons (Pai Long) for the SanHe principles. Forget about the method of establishing measurement using the LuoPan (LiPan) for the various methods if the fundamental of establishing the TaiJi spot is not first established. Next time when you play XuanKong FeiXing, DaGua and the sorts while busy measuring the facing and the sitting as in the tilt of the door, foot or headboard or even tomb stones, think about it – where is your TaiJi spot? The center of the 64 Gua or the center of your house?
Terry Gou 郭台銘 born October 8, 1950 is a Taiwanese tycoon who is the founder and chairman of Foxconn, a company that does contract manufacturing of electronics for other companies such as Apple Inc. It is the largest electronics manufacturing Services Company in the world, with factories in several countries, mostly in mainland China, where it employs 1.2 million people and is its largest exporter. Source - Wikipedia
Gou was born to a poor family where his father was just a career police officer. At one time, they were so poor that the entire family live in a temple 慈惠宮 nearby. Occupying a sanctum now known as the God of Wealth altar 五路財神殿, it was said that exactly that spot called the Toad Meridian 蟾蜍穴 is the FengShui meridian originated from the vein of BanJio Ling’s Family 板橋林家的龍脈 that has the capacity to produce tycoon. Terry Gou was lucky to have live there for almost a decade that the luck of his family begin to change for the better, therefore they move.
Gou’s father passed away at the ripe age of 80 and was buried in North Taiwan, village of SanXia, White Rooster Mount 台北縣三峽鎮白雞山區. White Rooster Mount 白雞山 comprises of 3 peaks – Deer Cave Peak 鹿窟尖, Rooster Shape Mount 雞罩山 and White Rooster Mount 白雞山. It was believed that this spot FengShui also benefited Gou.
Some information pertaining to the measurement of Gou’s Father Tomb, source GuoJia ZiChuang 國家之窗
Then the question come… who is the FengShui master behind the success of Gou?
THE ILLUSIVE FATHER AND SON FENGSHUI MASTERS - 福惠堂林金寶父子
This team of FengShui family shun publicity, the perfect candidate for most of the tycoon in Taiwan alike. Unlike their contemporary that pay heavily for advertisement and buy their ways to be media darling, this father and son team is so low profile that you don’t even notice that they actually existed. Their FengShui establishment is hidden within the alley that you need to observe closely to see their hall mark marked FuHui Tang 福惠堂. This FengShui outlet is formerly helmed by Master Lin ChunXiong 林春雄 (The Elder Lin) and now handed over to Master Lin JingBao 林金寶 (The Younger Lin). Collectively, they are responsible for the success of Gou’s industrial ventures.
Ever since, many other tycoons are hunting them down and strangely, another FengShui master by the name of Zhang QingYuan 张清渊 publicly disclosed that he is the legitimate FengShui master for Terry Gou 郭台铭御用风水师. Zhang QingYuan 张清渊 has since been very active in the media and FengShui circle within the non-Chinese speaking community too. He has written a so called – The World’s Numero-Uno Encyclopaedia of FengShui LiQi Book 天下第一风水理气大全. You may have a chance to learn from him…
There are always 2 sides to the truth. The genuine one would preferred to be extremely low profile while the others may opt for a more glamorous path such as calling themselves as – Public Figure… Have you ever wonder why?
OLD GLAMOROUS TEACHING OF PUBLIC FIGURE FENGSHUI MASTERS
Confession of an Instructor Part One - 01122008
I remembered a conversation I had with an instructor in the self acclaimed academy of Chinese Metaphysics in town; he admits that right up to this date, he has to teach all the redundant formulae laced in the module work book that it is almost worthless. I asked, if he doesn’t believe in the system why would he continue and silent was his only reply. He then said, if by all means he could help is to go beyond the system of the academy by affording others to be aware of these redundant formulae via other means, at least his Karmic effect would have been lessened. On such accord, it will be instrumental to share with the masses of what these redundant theories are all about. Hopefully, other good souls could also help to spread the “gospel” in light of the coming Armageddon for the ride by night academy.
The lesson on 8 mansions was a disgrace. Yet these proprietors had the cheek to lace it as advance 8 mansions by incorporating the system of NaJia, when the notion of NaJia had been grossly misinterpreted. The good thing is, this proprietor advocated the House Gua instead of the Ming Gua and at least husband and wife of different Gua group will not have to sleep in separate beds. Yet the confusions is so much that later on by the day, when the introduction of Shen’s Flying Star comes into the picture, trying to blend both methods result in disasters. Yet these proprietors have the cheek to find ways of consolidation beyond the means of natural order, seemingly force fitted and they re-brand it as whatsoever for life. Can one believe it?
The most fundamental of establishing sitting and facing is grossly erred. Stepping 3 feet behind, looking outward from the inside is ridicules, not in virtue of concept but in virtue of logic. The reasons of free from magnetic interference were absolute rubbish. All from the first lesson to the last were talking about establishing facing versus location, sitting versus facing with charts that does not fit into real life applications of the LuoPan. When it comes to measuring the bed, stove and the office desk, it will be a whole lot of display of whimsical fallacies, so force fitted that students at the end of the day will require purchasing a LuoPan, of inconsistent rings, that they are only taught to use the 24 mountain ring for everything below Heaven. How thoughtful and wise, after that, be called as a practitioner. Imagined, how many others will first be conned then insult in this manner.
For the rest of the course, one seemingly consistency is the lesson on Shen’s Flying Star was taught when, the academy, in fact, did not believe in it. I would strongly recommend the book written by a Singapore Teacher Practitioner called something liked, Fundamental of the Science of FengShui, which cost lesser then a real life course and loaded with better information on the lesson of Shen’s Flying Star methodology. In a nutshell, the course is worthless. To those who are Chinese literate, might as well read from the source book of Shen Si Xuan Kong Xue, in three volumes.
However, the highlight was the instructor, whom capitalized on the academy’s fame and marketing to provide private consultation beyond the charges of the founder proprietor himself, taking all opportunity of the class to first Con his potential client, then Insult them accordingly for seemingly private BaZi readings that cost a fortune to the unassumingly students of metaphysics, notably the well to do ones. Out of fear these students duly complied to his request that always end with an audit that cost a hefty price with seemingly no follow-up. As the local market is seemingly waned, the efforts to sell these courses are booming elsewhere in the western and southern part of the world, repeating its cycle once again, in full force.
Confession of an Instructor Part Two - 01122008
In Level 2: -
The lesson starts with the so-called 8 Killing forces at its most blatant serving, almost devoid of the fact that this is indeed a SanHe method best used with a SanYuan LuoPan, how insightful? It starts with the deliberation of incoming dragon from Kan cannot meet door facing at Chen, otherwise the occupants of the property will be dead. How convenience. Next, the applied version of a house sitting in Chen cannot see broken mountain in Kan. Same disaster will befall to the occupant of the property. How convincing. Nothing mentioned about the source of this method, keeping everyone in the dark. Next, in the higher level, it was revealed that it has a later and early heaven application. This is very refreshing for a SanHe method interpreted in a SanYuan ways, a very interesting point of departure.
Next, the 8 Roads of Destruction shared the same blatant serving, using the SanYuan LuoPan, very insightful. No discussion on the nature of this method as a derivative from more reliable sources. In the higher levels, when the assistant star water method was taught, students are more confused as in one method, water exit were auspicious and the others were not. So, which is right and which is wrong? Such inconsistency is obvious for the rest of the lessons, available or noticeable only by the initiated. By the time, one knew of the facts, it would be too late. Again, the graphical representations are not reflective of the way it is applied in real life. How could the student master the art?
Next, the peach blossom water, measuring incoming with the SanYuan LuoPan again. 3 Harmony roads indicating SanHe as the followings, if there is a mountain in Shen, house sitting in Zi and water exiting in Chen, then this will form the water frames of Shen Zi Chen, conforming to the SanHe principle, obviously a method to make millionaires. Same were to be applied indoor with tables, chairs and book selves. Don’t forget the aquarium! This is SanHe methodology using the SanYuan LuoPan.
Next, the TaiYang Dau Shan date selection for the mortification of SanSha, TaiSui and SuiPo. The assumption were based on when the sun arrive at the mountain, all the evils will be pacify. Question, what has SanSha, TaiSui and SuiPo being the stars of ShenSha method has to do with this method? Are these stars evil by its own nature? Is TaiYang Dau Shan a method for date selection? Think again?
Next, the 5 Ghost carry tidbits, using the SanYuan LuoPan. This is a derivation method, only being informed to the students when they had reached level 5, as being part of the FuXing XuiFa. Complicating it with NaJia, the application was served raw in piecemeal beyond recognition, implying the application for the external. None has any clue pertaining to its application in reality.
Next, a revisit of Shen’s Flying Star and more 8 mansions screwed up theories before calling it up for the day. No question shall be entertained as more revelation will come in the higher level and kindly register with the marketer just outside of the lecture room for early bird discount. That was the parting message. Formally concluded means, the informal business of ConSulting for the instructor begins. How convenience. After graduating, students are able to call themselves as advance practitioner. Very wise indeed.
Confession of an Instructor Part Three - 01122008
In level 3 and a half: -
The opening lessons are all recognizing of landforms and its terminology of which is obvious and are largely made available in Chinese book on the same topic. Walking the dragon via the projectors with half cooked imagery, the wises choice besides FengShui entourage.
The main dish of the days is the water method in SanHe. Now, students must buy the SanHe LuoPan. What is to be used of the SanYuan LuoPan, nobody knows. The most impressive of all is the SanHe 4 major water exits. There are basically 4 structures, of which water must not be outgoing from these directions and water must best come in from these directions. It is therefore paramount important to establish the following auspicious facing to tap into the water mouth which is equivalent to the road junctions. Facing is based on the gate, so tilting of gates is the norm of SanHe FengShui, just to receive water. Use this method together with the 72 dragon for measuring the quality of the Gaps, based on the HETU luck cycle with the selections only of the Bing, Ding, Geng and Xin stems for the rest is emptiness called turtle shell and squeezing emptiness, based on WenWang NaJia postulation. Interesting hypothesis indeed. These are all fallacies.
The sub-dishes are nothing but the introduction of mountain method notably of LaiGong’s human plate, measuring and divination of the embrace, determine the quality of the veins and spots using the 60 dragons, taught in half heartedly without dwelling in the basics of how would such 60 dragons be established from the outer to the inner rings of the LuoPan. A brushing encounter of the 3 auspicious 6 elegance method of embrace for the evaluation of the vicinity, as a standalone technique devoid of the water method, classify as SanHe and solely squeeze into the 24 mountain Earth plate of the SanHe LuoPan. These are also fallacies.
Again, upon graduation, one is entitled to be called; super advance practitioner and God bless all. Until such, no clue whatsoever of taking a sitting and a facing the SanHe method. This time around, the instructor has no time to answer question let alone do any sideline income from the students.
2017 marks the changing of Period – 8 to Period – 9 for people who subscribes to the school of 2 Cycles 8 Periods 二元八運. People who subscribes to the school of 3 Cycles 9 Periods 三元九運 should re-validate their theories especially the Flying Star Junkies. Period – 8 seems to come and go to pass by without any “fire-works”. The dawn has arrived to welcome the Early Heaven Qian Gua 先天乾卦. What is obvious since the last winter solstice 冬至, is the change in major leadership, policy making, presidencies and various expose involving high ranking officers and the sort leading towards the tipping point of matters that we are so used to it.
In conclusion, the entire world seems to be at a tipping point, where the impossible happens to be possible. The used-to-be rich and corrupted are at the rim of being exposed. Old empires such as the Lehman Brothers collapsed. New world order seems to be obsolete, overnight. Everyone is waiting for the arrival of the new saviour… This is Period – 9, the Early Heaven Qian Gua 先天乾卦.
COMPARISON TO PERIOD – 8
In retrospective, Big Sister used to forewarned others of the changing of Period – 7 to Period – 8, in 2004 based on the 3 Cycles 9 Periods 三元九運 with the arrival of Later Heaven Gen Gua 後天艮卦.With limited English language resources at that time, many of the English speaking FengShui enthusiasts ended up spending a fortune to change the period of their houses as the followings: -
Many who succumb to such an idea not only having to spent a fortune without seeing results, some proprietor also ended up in trouble, as observed: -
So much for “good FengShui” activating the 8 wealth star in period – 8.
1996 marks the changing of Period – 7 to Period – 8 for people who subscribes to the school of 2 Cycles 8 Periods 二元八運. The dawn has arrived to welcome the Early Heaven Zhen Gua 先天震卦. What is obvious since the last winter solstice 冬至 of 1995 – 2017, was the shrinking of the world with the birth of the information revolution and the collapsed of Communism both the USSR and China, rightly represented by the trigram Early Heaven Zhen Gua 先天震卦.
Only on 2004 onwards, we noticed that the ugly part of the period – 8 takes position, before it undergoes another transformation in 2016, the changing of Period – 8 to Period – 9 for 2 Cycles 8 Periods 二元八運, Early Heaven Qian Gua 先天乾卦. By 2024, the so called arrival of Period – 9 of Later Heaven Li Gua 後天離卦 based on the 3 Cycles 9 Periods 三元九運, the Later Heaven Li Gua 先天離卦 denotes – Fire, Early Heaven Qian Gua 先天乾卦 denotes – Heaven. Heaven Gua always come before Earth Gua, therefore we derived Qian ☰ above Li ☲, TongRen Gua 同人卦 - Fire burning Heavenly Gates 火烧天门?
THE SANYUAN 三元 ERYUAN 二元 DICHOTOMY
This dichotomy between both schools, use to fuel the major debates in Chinese Metaphysics forum as the attitude of, “I am holier than thou…” is always apparent and it usually resulted in a not so gentleman or many times brutal outcomes. Now, almost 20 years is drawing nearer and we all have wised up witnessed that: -
We can come to a compromise that both SanYuan 三元 and ErYuan 二元 schools are valid and in fact, both are subsets of one another. They are the different sides of the same coin where ErYuan 二元 measures the Heaven Qi and SanYuan 三元 measures the Earth Qi. Imagine that both are wheels with gears of different demarcation. As the wheels turn, at some points, both SanYuan 三元 and ErYuan 二元 must meet. Apparently, the Early Heaven 先天 sets the motion and Later Heaven 後天 sets its ending… to be “reborn” again in another period to come, ad-infinitum. This is the natural order…
In such similar reflection, do you know as to why your SanYuan 三元 FengShui method sometimes work, sometimes cannot work? Why your XuanKong FeiXing 玄空飞星 cannot work as well as some XuanKong LiuFa 玄空六法 method? The answer is probably you still live in the wrong era…
GARNISHING A STALE PLATE OF PERIOD 8...
Investigating The Effect Of Flying Star In Changing Into Period 8 - 08122009
In the Blog Entry, more con-sult-ant in the makings, “…I was call to go down South to rescue another screwed up job. We do not want to know who this person was but by the way the modus operandi is given, there could only be one answer…”. This time around, while we investigated the property, we were given a rectification works of a Flying Star screwed-up job of changing into period 8. Here is the tale.
Prior to the change of period 8, the house has been lived by a couple with 3 beautiful grown up kids. Business for the father was good but issues with the grown up children was experiencing a roller coaster ride. The elder son was attracted to a married woman with a son. Her marital status was unknown. The parents objected to their relationship and ended up having the elder son leave the family to settle down with the married woman across the border. The youngest son too was having a difficult time with relationship. The wedding of the youngest son was prepared but at the nick of time, the bride pulls out of the wedding, resulting in gross wastage and emotional traumas.
In view of such, they engaged a consultant who spelt out to his client that never to mention his name unless it is for a job reference. In 2004, the makeover include painting of the walls, changing of the roof, changing of the Heaven’s Heart, tilting of the door to capture castle gate formation and vacate for at least 100 days before moving in again. The results were the parents finally agreed to pay up the ransom of the elder son and he married the lady with an illegitimate child. They move into the house. The younger son met up another girl and finally tied the knot.
Is that happily ever after? No, as the elder son begins to feel that the wife he married was unsuitable for him and the younger son’s ex-girlfriend wanted to patch up and be the third party in their relationship. Then business was slapped with the authority issues of invading taxes, since 2008. As we did not do the site investigation, using divination method we manage to prescribe some temporary relieve. True enough, he was off the hook in 2008. However, in 2009 the same problem repeated.
This time around, we were on site to investigate further. The owners were not really cooperative as we need to dig and dig to find more answers. The water exits were wrong and the only good thing was, they may have stirred up the Qi and ended up with the happy occasions of the married of their sons although it may not be long lasting. As usual we discussed a little further in Yifengshui inner teachings. Is this how the Flying Star changing of Period 8 and Castle Gate entrance takes effect? We thought it would last for another 20 years?
Period Oh Period - 12022009
We had witnessed how the new arrival of JiaZi changes the macro-economic climate around the world. We also witnessed how the natural climate changes around the world. We also witnessed the planetary conjunctions which formed a smiley. We also hide under the shed when the eclipse of the Sun took place in the Lunar Chinese New Year. What else do we need to witness? FengShui Monsters, FengShui marketer, Fake Pedigree holders and the likes, burnt in hell?
The funny things are why have this not made the headline equivalent to the coming of Period 8 that had seen a lot of “Hoo Har” and yet died its own natural death? Had the blue blacked rhinoceros pacify the most feared off 7 red robbery stars? Or the fighting SanSha had yet to create another demand for XuanKong DaGua Date Selection – Fighting SanSha Course that will continue to profit the academies in town in the expense of the sucking the poor to feed the rich?
These I do not have an answer. I do know however that, the working of the period is in place. First of all, the solar Xia calendar has been the source of reference for metaphysics since time immemorial. YuanKong, however follows its own point of reference, the purple white.
The script says: -
“ With the period master,
It is the three cycle and 6 JIA.
6 JIA may be the same,
but the flying palace in the three Yuan can be different,
Same goes to the Na Yin in the Centre Palace.”
Knowing this one will understand the working of the period, Yun.
It was fun participating in a BaZi pop-quiz organized by JLim in the now ‘reborn’ fivearts.info forum… In this challenge, JLim asked;
“Today is Valentine's day. Let's have a quiz about love... and separation. Choose when this lady married and then quickly divorced; 2007 Ding Hai, 2009 Ji Chou, 2011 Xin Mao, 2013 Gui Si, 2015 Yi Wei. Please choose one year only, and your reasoning using any method (Bazi, ZWDS, Liu Yao, QMDJ, Meihua, Tarot, Mahjong divination etc.). +6 karma points for the correct answer with reasoning. A simple reasoning will do. No karma point for correct answer but without reasoning at all. The Chinese hour is correct with or without adjustment to solar time. I will announce the answer after at least 15 people participate. But I will only send my Bazi analysis by pm to those who participate.”
True enough, none of the 15 participants participated are BIG NAMES, liked – “You Know Who…”. Those participated are all small fries including JayTee. The Big Names have reputation to keep, imagine what if they answer wrongly? For the small fries liked JayTee, it is a good opportunity to test out their wits and to make sure that they are confident enough to just give – one answer, without having to revise their answer at one go… You just cannot simply say, maybe… might be… could be… in real audits. You have to know your arts well minus the guessing games. This challenge is even more interesting because, JLim wanted the participant to write down, how do they derive their decision… OMG… you must read the commentary as it is the most intriguing dynamics among the various arts on display from the so commonly known ZiPing to ‘No Name’ divination techniques all in one go – Superb! Yet, none of the 15 participants, I presumed, would have known who this BaZi chart belongs to…
Later, JLim broke the news by saying;
“The answer is 2011 XinMao. She married and divorced in the same year! Thank you to quiz participants! Her husband was a policeman, who loved to gamble. He gambled a lot of their money and lost everything. Because of this, they got into a huge fight and divorced. As of end of 2015, she was still single. I see that she will marry twice in her life. More Bazi details on how to see wealth loss, her marriage and divorce later through PM.”
Dawn upon the participants that only 4 out of the 15 make the correct predictions. Among these 4 are the so common technique of ZiPing BaZi served raw – no acrobatic pictorial method or something similar… Who says ZiPing BaZi cannot use? The aftermath was a series of self-reflections and soul searching and one in particular, caught our attention;
“The answer is right there! Mao clashes with Subject You and at the same time combines with the Object Xu. Very straight forward, yet is unseen. It is so much easier to read the hexagram when you know the answer eh?”
So, it does really make more sense with post-diction instead of pre-diction, right? That’s life… That is the reason why many BaZi teachers love to use post-diction of known celebrities to showcase their skills. It is simply very exciting when you work backward to narrow down to an observation. Only good teacher would do a life expose of all his/her students without prior notice in class to be testified by the students themselves… If your teacher don’t do that, you better run away far-far…
In fact, the good old fashioned, ZiPing BaZi has not really lost its teeth… Someone did say;
“There are many-many BaZi theories around.
The one used most often is referring to the month as the anchor.
Another theory refers to the month for structure only and not for strength.
Another refers to heaven, earth and man. Meaning calculated using all the 8 palaces.
The least well known theory refers to resources and resources only, nothing else…”
You can see, there are many ways to skin the cat… Yet, how many can it be used? That is the Question?
THE ZIPING DYNAMICS
Assuming that it is not born in season, it is rendered a weak chart, favouring resource and self. Here we determined the strength of the Day Stem to be in consistent with modern ZiPing approach.
Fast forward, narrow down to the spouse star, high possibility is when the Xin辛 is protruding. Why we say, Xin辛 as the spouse star instead of the officer star? Someone did say, “Wei and BingXu are Spouse Stars, while Wu is Spouse Palace.” This is one problem with ZiPing… What exactly is what?
Bing丙 is the officer star to Geng 庚. The Home Palace have Wei未 and Wu午 combination. Will that form fire? Mind you there is a constant clash between Chou丑 and Wei未, how to combine? Different school, different stroke again…
Assuming it does not, this Geng 庚 is still sitting on her officer Wu午. Is this officer官 star favourable to Geng 庚? Again this come to the question of Officer and Killing 官杀, different school, different stroke…
Someone suggests, “Mao combines to move Wei, so marriage occurred.” Look at this carefully, Mao卯 combine with Xu戌 also forming fire. Will it transform? Which season do we look into? Different school, different stroke… Will Wei未 combine after being clashed by Chou丑?
Someone suggests, “Xin as Rob Wealth is inauspicious in this chart.” Look at this carefully again… How can Xin辛 be an unfavourable god to a weak Geng 庚? Isn’t a weak chart favours Self and Resource?
Maybe this is the reason, “The chart works by Geng combining with Yi, but Xin clashing Yi is inauspicious, leading to wealth loss.” Look at this extreme carefully… How do Geng庚 combine with Yi乙 when it is so far apart? Really, cannot figure this out…
The final straw, “The divorce happened in LP Bing Xu, because this LP is the "arrival" of Xu to punish Wei and Mao AP also combines to trigger Xu.”, Look at this extreme carefully… XinMao 辛卯 cannot just come and combine away without negotiating with BingXu 丙戌. Don’t even know if such has already been activated yet… Again, different school, different stroke…
THE IMAGERY DYNAMICS
GengWu 庚午 lady as was described by one website – “… the KING maker. Geng the raw iron is useless when it is not forge, with Ding fire, it forge itself into Axe - a tool that know no fear. Geng the most vicious sitting on Ding its very own Direct Officer which is the cardinal force. This give it the ability to be righteous. Ding fire shine the clear path in times of darkness, it’s the very fire that remove fear, remove all doubt. GengWu has a resilient personality. They get thing done quickly and swift. Ding give them clear sight and detail while still being elegant like the night star in a clear sky.”
When Bing meet Xin – “Bing 丙 Fire + Xin 辛 Metal = Water. Water epitomized being stray and betrayal. Bing 丙 Fire is passion while Xin 辛 Metal is beauty, over indulgence in woman, wine & music. Chinese has a saying that see money (Xin) turn into Water 见财化水. Fire countering metal. Bing丙 Fire, pictorially liked a Sun, now will literally melting away the small Xin 辛 Metal.” We seriously don’t know how could that be? The Sun only make the metal shines brighter! “In exchange the transformation produce Wisdom (Water). Transformation only happen in the month of Chen (辰) Dragon, Shen (申) Monkey, Hai (亥) Pig & Zi (子) Rat.”
In conclusion, she is hype out being get thing done quickly and swift and marrying the guy. Only to find that see money (Xin) turn into Water 见财化水. Trouble. She took the noble step as Geng the raw iron is useless when it is not forge, with Ding fire, it forge itself into Axe - a tool that know no fear. She divorce him. End of story…

CLICK HERE FOR DETAIL
Let’s contemplate on one of this statement –
USEFUL GOD 用神 USEFUL?
In contemporary BaZi 八字, the emphasis is in the strength 强弱 of the Day Stem 日主元神. A strong or weak chart will determined the Useful God 用神. This Useful God 用神 is naturally the element favourable to the chart. A weak chart needs to be strengthened and a strong chart needs to be weakened. The elements that strengthened the weak chart or weaken the strong chart are called Favourable God 吉神 while the reverse are called Unfavourable God 忌神. It is useful when you know how to determine the strength 强弱 of the Day Stem 日主元神. This could pose a lot of challenges especially with different schools holding different points of view about many other miscellaneous criteria, supposing the rule of combination and transformations, the rule on earth seasons and so forth… They never seem to agree with one another often resulted in cases liked, strong but not so strong, weak but not so weak…
In classical approach, the emphasis is on the Useful God 用神, not the Day Stem 日主元神. This Useful God 用神 is the God in-command 用事之神, determined by the Month Commander月令. It is not necessarily to be your Favourable God 吉神, as it could just be an Unfavourable God 忌神 as well. Therefore, the traditional approaches boil down to the quality of the Useful God 用神. These qualities are known as Having Affection 有情 or Having Strength 有力. Having Affection 有情 means the Useful God 用神 is being used the appropriate ways and Having Strength 有力 means the Useful God 用神 is being used to strengthen the Day Stem 日主元神. They mean different things altogether. It is useful when you know how to use the Useful God 用神 in the manner of Having Affection 有情 or Having Strength 有力 in a way that Favourable God 吉神 are supported and protected, Unfavourable God 忌神 are restraint and transformed.
SUCH A THING AS USEFUL GOD 用神?
Traditionally, useful God 用神 is derived from the Month Branch that is commonly known as a Month Commander月令. A branch may concealed more than one elements. The Commanding God 用事之神 must be the most dominant element hidden within the Month Branch. This is to qualify as the Commanding God 用事之神 of a particular Solar Term. How to decide on the most dominant element is again, different school different stroke… This Month Branch may also subject to movement and stillness 动静. As to how it move and kept still 动静 is again, different school different stroke… This is a problem! Ultimately, there is a Useful God 用神 subject that one understand clearly as to how to identify the dominant element and determine its movement and stillness 动静.
Modern approach, useful God 用神 is derived from the strength of the Day Stem 强弱. This goes by the mantra of In-Season 挡候, In-Location 挡位 and In-Formation 挡局.These three factors that contributed to the Day Stem 日主元神 require the Useful God 用神 to arbitrate 扶抑, to medicate 病药 or to adjust 调候. There is a Useful God 用神 of different technique for different situation. Ultimately, reaching to a near perfect chart of CaiGuan Yin 财官印.
HOW MANY TIMES WHEN YOUR USEFUL GOD 用神 APPEAR AND YOUR LIFE GOT NO IMPROVEMENT?
This is a compounded question. First, how many times when your Useful God appear? Second, if it appears, why your life got no improvement?
Let’s attempt the first limb of the question. Useful God may appear many times, through the dynamic part of your BaZi – the Luck Pillar and the Annual Pillar. Assuming, that your useful god is fire. This year DingYou 丁酉 may bring about the fire Qi require. A number of Chinese Academies such as Money squeezing Academy of chinese metaphysics (MsAocm), may say that DingYou 丁酉 comes in after LiChun 3 February 2017, Friday 10:36pm. Therefore you suppose to bank in money during this day to activate the “丁”… Is that true?
We also need to ask when is the actual arrival of the Useful God 用神? One conventional way state that, the first half of the year is governed by Ding 丁 while the second half is governed by You 酉? Is that also true? When will the Ding丁 or the You 酉 have impact on you? Will the You 酉 TaiSui full-fledged force be impacted upon you on the Yin寅 month or the Si巳-You酉-Chou丑 month or the Chen辰 month? Many stroke, different outcome.
One method probably coined Qi Flow Method 氣流法 go as far as to measure the actual progresses or retrograde of these elements through various means such as star conjunctions, planetary movements and eclipses. In such case, even if the Ding丁 is observed, with the real absent of the fire Qi, will you still get to enjoy the fire Qi? Probably such gave the answer to the second limb of the question - even when your useful god appear why your life still got no improvement?

10 GODS PROFILE 十神
The Strength of the Day Stem tells you your natural behavioral weakness and strength.
Your Structure indicates your useful god – PRIMARY PROFILE
This tell you 2 things –
- Your most prominent character.
- Your most obvious inclination.
Used these to your advantages.
But, you still need to deal with your “Inner Devil” – weaknesses…
This is where your altered ego comes into play – SECONDARY PROFILE
Everybody is born with a main behaviour and many secondary behaviours. Life is complicated. Sometimes we are like an eagle, while other time a parrot or a peacock. These 10 characteristic stereotypes knowing their strength and weaknesses enable us to use them effectively at our disposal. This art is called – USING THE 10 GODS.
Let just assume you are the executioner type Vulture. Your positive set of value is this… and your weaknesses is this… You must altered your ego to be Resource and take the personality profile as an Owl to weaken your primary profile vulture. What installed as the positive attribute of the Owl will offset the negative value of the vulture. Resource grows you and weakened the Officer. This is the use of the SECONDARY PROFILE within you in the 10 Gods interplay.
When you grew up, you will tend to take upon another set of Behavioral Patterns. This is your PRIMARY PROFILE. It tells you 2 things namely, your most prominent character and your most obvious inclination. They are your natural self - your Ego. In BaZi jargon it is called your Structure. It is where your Useful God is to be found.
Useful God may be so useful but how do you use it to counter your dislikes and weaknesses? This is where you need to alter your Ego and use your SECONDARY PROFILE. In another words, use also your Unfavorable Gods by taking up other profiles. This is called mitigation. In BaZi jargon, you use the 10 Gods to your advantages through the art of WuXin ShengKe 五行生克法.
“There is no such thing as weak and strong chart in Bazi… Most importantly there is no such thing as positive and negative stars.”
... We will address this later ;-)
OLD STUFF LOOKS RELEVANT...
子孙平安 Blessed Generation - 23032009
We have seen how behavioral sciences are used to profile the potential candidates for the available vacancies. Yet, it is through a series of questionnaires, interviews and assumptions that the profiles are assigned to each and every candidate. The known psychological based profilers among others are DISC, Temperament, Personality Plus and others. We seek to rely on BaZi instead as a mechanism of profiling. Just the date of birth with the time of birth is sufficient to know the temperament as Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholic and Phlegmatic or even some may consider Supine, being the fifth temperament. More of the classifications can be derived from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Temperaments .
It is not going to be an easy task in looking at the ZiPing 10 gods to understand their intricate characteristic. It is worth the effort especially in times liked these; as it is to be provided FREE. As a non-profit endeavors modeled similar to a “wiki”, we seek support from all those who are learned, interested and generous to contribute to such cause, by dropping an email to me to register your interest. I believe this effort may not rock the world but it will provide a pathway for our generation to come to look at BaZi not as an art of superstition but a code of life, proudly preserved for the future generations as intended as ZiPing, ZiSun PingAnn 子孙平安 .
