4 Pillars (四柱命理)

Contemporary understanding of 10 Deity in 4 Pillars/ BAZI

Beginning 2020, I’ve been answering BAZI questions for a while. Decided to pen this down as a takeaway for people who has affinity to my website.

Common question asked is: “my BAZI lacking water, how do I introduce water into my chart?” Besides the conventional way of using water sector in Feng Shui, numerology that signifies water, name selection, colours and crystals.

One contemporary way is to really understand what it means by lacking water in the BAZI chart; which I think is a better solution to work at the problem. For example, if 壬 water is missing in chart, the lack of clarity and inability to be purposeful is causing you the problem. Or if 甲 wood is missing, the lack of conviction is hindering your success.

Inversely, if you have a 壬 water in the month pillar (for example), your have the power of clarity in the work environment, with your peers, friends, colleague and siblings. And, if you aren’t doing that, either you have not activate that part of your BAZI or you are not using your BAZI components effectively. So, make a resolution this year to get the books, talks and courses to level up that skills set.
