4 Pillars (四柱命理)

十神性格

比肩星旺的人
比肩即是與日元同五行同陰陽的力量,既然同類,在現實人際關系之中可以引申為朋友、同事等同輩之人。比肩會加強命主自身的主觀意識與獨立精神,自尊心強烈,過于堅持自己的想法和利益是導致固執心理形成的基礎。所以,比肩星旺的人不太善于變通,墨守成規,聽不進別人的意見。另一方面,比肩星又帶有競爭性質,不喜歡妥協,朋友之間往往因為言語不和而大打出手,抑或利益反目成仇。

劫財星旺的人
由于劫財星與命主自身同五行但不同陰陽,猶如一物兩面,外在所表現的與內在總不一樣,所謂的表里不一,出爾反爾。平時別看他們對人很迎合恭維,但不代表他們認可別人的意見。一方面可以把別人的話當成耳邊風,同時又不會得罪人。另一方面,劫財星旺的人喜好嫉妒,暗地里爭執難免。越是偽裝,越令人防不勝防,最后關頭還是會強調自身的觀點和利益,所以劫財具有強烈的潛在的本位意識。

偏印星旺的人
偏印是一種同性滋生命主的五行,由于過多的生,會使命主變得自我,為人處事,總帶有理所當然的想法,即別人對自己的好是應該的。可以看不慣許多人事,卻不認為是自己偏執。偏印作為同性的生助,既生又排斥,那么自身心態反反復復,極度缺乏安全感,敏感多疑。同性的生,必然缺乏愛心,故有孤僻冷漠的一面。思想天馬行空,言語生硬,缺乏幽默感,容易把自己封閉起來,對周圍環境或人漠不關心,社會適應性較差。偏印本身愛計較和妒忌,見不得別人比自己過得好。外在可以強裝什么都不在乎,但關鍵時候還是輕勁一番,自尋煩惱。更喜歡找理由來欺騙自己,折磨自己的同時,也在折磨他人。

正印星旺的人
雖然心地善良,但同樣很固執,如果沒有從他們的精神及心靈領域入手,那很難打動他們的。雖然不及偏印星那樣完全封閉自己,然后躲在一個角落享受怨恨閑愁,但他們卻可以天真般自我安慰,讓人不得不無語。其實,正印星最讓人擔擾的是他們死愛面子,往往打腫臉當胖子,即使錯了也不愿意承認。

傷官星旺的人
由于傷官星是命主自身生出的五行,故是命主自身性情、情緒、欲望、語言、表現力等的反映,為感性的力量,天生情緒化。其人有著超越他人的欲望與野心,虛榮心十足,浮夸傲慢,對自我評價過高,不接受批評,每每表現,并渴望得到別人的認同。如果有人反對他們,即使是忠言逆耳,那么傷官星的人也會有一萬個理由回應。

七殺星旺的人
由于七殺星是直接克伐命主自身的五行,故七殺有如敵人,與其面對,要么被征服,要么戰勝之,非拼個輸贏不可,這就是說七殺星旺的人好勝心強烈,個性急躁,有霸道的一面,謀事容易有不成功便成仁的想法,自然聽不進別人的話。

BAZI supplements for weakness in Wood & Fire

“甲膽乙肝丙小腸,丁心戊胃己脾鄉。庚是大腸辛屬肺,壬系膀胱癸腎藏。”

Traditionally, the mitigating factor when it comes to a BAZI chart that has (signs of) weakness in Fire and Wood. There is usually the career/ industry elements that compliment it, which BAZI practitioner often dish out in their reports; there is also the spiritual and growth suggestions we can turn to. And, when it comes to nutrition and medicine, its about going back to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In contemporary times and advancement in research, this 2 western supplements (Resveratrol and CoQ10) might seem like a good alternative to mitigate this risk early.

1. Resveratrol Supplements May Help Lower Blood Pressure: Because of its antioxidant properties, resveratrol could be a promising supplement for lowering blood pressure.
2. It Has a Positive Effect on Blood Fats: Several studies in animals have suggested that resveratrol supplements may change blood fats in a healthy way.
3. It Lengthens Lifespan in Certain Animals: The compound’s ability to extend lifespan in different organisms has become a major area of research.
4. It Protects the Brain: Several studies have suggested that drinking red wine can help slow down age-related cognitive decline. This may partly be due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity of resveratrol.
5. It May Increase Insulin Sensitivity: Resveratrol has been shown to have several benefits for diabetes, at least in animal studies.
6. It May Ease Joint Pain: Arthritis is a common affliction that leads to joint pain and loss of mobility. Plant-based supplements are being studied as a way to treat and prevent joint pain. When taken as a supplement, resveratrol may help protect cartilage from deteriorating.
7. Resveratrol May Suppress Cancer Cells: Resveratrol has been studied, especially in test tubes, for its ability to prevent and treat cancer. However, results have been mixed. In animal and test-tube studies, it has been shown to fight several kinds of cancer cells, including gastric, colon, skin, breast and prostate.

1. It May Help Treat Heart Failure: Heart failure is often a consequence of other heart conditions, such as coronary artery disease or high blood pressure. These conditions can lead to increased oxidative damage and inflammation of the veins and arteries.
2. It Could Help With Fertility: Female fertility decreases with age due to a decline in the number and quality of available eggs. CoQ10 is directly involved in this process. As you age, CoQ10 production slows, making the body less effective at protecting the eggs from oxidative damage.
3. It Might Help Keep Your Skin Young: Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it’s widely exposed to damaging agents that contribute to aging.
4. It Could Reduce Headaches: Abnormal mitochondrial function can lead to an increased calcium uptake by the cells, the excessive production of free radicals and decreased antioxidant protection. This can result in low energy in the brain cells and even migraines.
5. It Could Help With Exercise Performance: Oxidative stress can affect muscle function, and thus, exercise performance. Similarly, abnormal mitochondrial function can reduce muscle energy, making it hard for muscles to contract efficiently and sustain exercise.
6. It Could Help With Diabetes: Oxidative stress can induce cell damage. This can result in metabolic diseases like diabetes. Abnormal mitochondrial function has also been linked to insulin resistance.
7. It Might Play a Role in Cancer Prevention: Oxidative stress is known to cause cell damage and affect their function. If your body is unable to effectively fight oxidative damage, the structure of your cells can become damaged, possibly increasing the risk of cancer.
8. It Is Good for the Brain: Mitochondria are the main energy generators of brain cells. Mitochondrial function tends to decrease with age. Total mitochondrial dysfunction can lead to the death of brain cells and diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
9. CoQ10 Could Protect the Lungs: Of all your organs, your lungs have the most contact with oxygen. This makes them very susceptible to oxidative damage. Increased oxidative damage in the lungs and poor antioxidant protection, including low levels of CoQ10, can result in lung diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

As we approaches winter solstice, some usual questions I get from enthusiast, interest groups, friends and loved ones relating to Annual Feng Shui. Hence, decided to spend some time and pen it down for ease of reference, these are some of the common comments and keynotes about 2020. As well as an entry point for people who are new to Feng Shui. Some of these concept are not widely circulate in publication. Hence, may cause some subtle confusion, drop me a note/ comments if you need the specifics.

For Annual Analysis, there is (personally) a need to divide into those impact by stars and those induced by TaiSui (Yes, as a Practitioner, there is a need to split it up). Those that dealt with flying stars and purple white astrology will follow winter solstice as the point of change. While those induce by TaiSui shall follow the Start of Spring () based on the 24 seasonal chart.

For 2020, I would be using star 7 in the middle palace,  plot thru the 9 grid (3 x 3) to get the annual flying star chart for the year. With that, the annual flying star: 7, Disaster Star 5 is in the East, Sickness Star 2 lands in the South, while the Quarrelsome Star 3 sits in North; this are basically the negative stars to take note. These stars only become ‘alive’ when a Taiji (太极) is formed.  The auspicious greedy wolf, military officer, academic officer and prosperous stars lands at Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Northwest and West respective. Hopefully, the main door is bless with 1 of these auspicious stars. The effects will take place between 22 Dec 2019 thru 21 Dec 2020.

This a quite a fair year because the robbery star 7 is lock in the middle. Meaning 1 less negative stars to worry about in terms of flying stars FengShui. What most of us need to be concerned of is the East, North and South; generally house in Singapore are high rise and North-South facing with bedroom in the East.

The sector Northeast and Southwest which was pretty lousy in 2019 has become better in 2020. Blessed by flying stars 1 and 4. Which is for wealth, prosperity, growth and academic endeavours. And, further enhance by annual Wealth and Nobleman. Young parents, especially mummy should make use of this opportunity to upgrade themselves in terms of knowledge and skills.

Those induce by Mr. TaiSui is more straightforward. TaiSui is Rat, the house with Horse sitting will immediately feel the health and monetary impact. Especially so, it the residents zodiac is horse or with life Gua 9. It not the end of the world, let be a little scientific about it. There are things we can do like take cautious in investment decision and better health habit and risk adverse.

When TaiSui comes from the direction of Rat; and in form school Rat direction has a poison arrow or road clash angled toward the property. This is the 3 Affliction Sector (三合冲吊) meaning the trio combination of people with zodiac dragon, rat and monkey might be afflicted in Heath, mishap or in form of daily grinds. This differs from the 4 pillar / BAZI way of analysis. This is not widely practice and also not commercially mentioned in most paid consultation by practitioner and FSM, I added here for knowledge and completeness sake.

As for those 3 Killings, 4 Deity, 5 Tigers and what not, the terms and name kinda speaks for itself – they are the badass; ideally no renovations or large movement in these sectors. The qi flow need be stable and still, both internally and externally. If there is external arrows or clash, would need to further assess the house qi (宅体) before concluding the effects and whether further actions is needed.

In making use of the Auspicious sectors. I’m more for application rather than placement. As the saying 3 auspicious overcomes 1 negative. In Feng Shui, I advocate the use of 3 auspicious sector to raise the house Qi (宅体). Look at it as boosting the immunity to overcome the harm and affliction for the year.

For placement wise (if you really need to use placement) – based on personal experiences, ONLY this 3 methods: indoor plants with bigger leaf size is preferred, for water aquarium the currents need to be gentle and clear, soil and murky water is not preferred. Alternatively, would be the use of sphere shaped crystals, quartz vibration is generally a good choice. The whole idea behind placement is help users set in and settle the personal intentions.

Guess I’ll stop here otherwise it sounds naggy. Drop me a comment if there is any specifics you needed clarification into.
