Date Selection (擇日)

Date Selection: Full Day

The idea behind the 12 Day Officers Method of Date Selection lies in the use of Qi that best matches the activity.

•   Establish 建 (Jiàn)
•   Remove 除 (Chú)
•   Full 滿 (Mǎn)
•   Balance 平 (Pīng)
•   Stable 定 (Dìng)
•   Initiate 執 (Zhǐ)
•   Destruction 破 (Pò)
•   Danger 危 (Wēi)
•   Success 成 (Chéng)
•   Receive 收 (Shōu)
•   Open 開 (Kāi)
•   Close 閉 (Bì)

The Full Day (滿) represent ‘much’ of something or bountiful amounts of returns. This is good for signing agreements and business openings. This is a particularly good day to tap into the multiplier effect of the Full Day.

On a personal note, Full Day (滿) can be use for a house-warming party / baby-shower or installing a new device or new equipment in the house or office.

For Debt-Collectors, Full Day (滿) represent to be able to collect the sum ‘In-Full’. Also, in the olden days, folklore suggest the use of Full Day for marriage. Because, this signified more than one wife and in those times, and was considered good fortune (i.e. the more wives a man had, the richer he was). But, not very wise to adopt in today’s context.

大衍筮法

大衍筮法即蓍草揲蓍法,是“四书五经”之《易经》原文中所唯一记载的一种最为古老的筮法。 筮即策,是运用蓍草按照一定的要求和规定得出特定的数字组合,从而用数字变化成周易阴阳卦爻符号,并以此结合《易经》卦爻辞吉凶作为决策或谋略的重要判断方法。 “大衍筮法”出自今传本朱熹隶定的易传《系辞上传》。

地母卦

地母翻卦用法:一是格龙立向、二是用于人盘消砂、三是室内布局。

1、格龙立向,以罗盘地盘测得的来龙,用地母掌翻得吉宫,以求吉向。如乙方来龙,立向。乙纳坤乙,坤宫从对宫翻地母卦,就是从艮宫起贪狼,如上图所示,得艮、巽、坤、兑四个向为吉,比如我们立贪狼艮宫,艮宫纳甲为丙艮,就立壬山丙向、坤山艮向,再如立巨门向,则是巽宫,巽纳辛巽,则立乙山辛向和乾山巽向,记住是立向,不是坐山,这是要点。

2、消砂,要以坐山来消砂,如甲山庚向,丁方见山,论其吉凶,以坐山纳甲,得乾纳乾甲,如下图:


得兑宫、乾宫、艮宫、震宫为吉砂,丁方之砂,丁纳甲为兑丁巳酉丑,故丁砂吉。记住以纳甲论吉凶,绝对不能以二十四山原宫位论吉凶。

3、室内布局,在阳宅内部,以甲山庚向宅,在室内布局,兑宫、乾宫、艮宫、震宫这四个方位适合开门、做灶、安床、放神位,其余凶方可以做厕所、修过道、转角等。办公室风水,办公桌要放在吉方,在吉方办公。店铺风水,神位、收银台要在吉方。

Date Selection (擇日)

Date Selection: Commencement / Establish Day

The idea behind the 12 Day Officers Method of Date Selection lies in the use of Qi that best matches the activity.

•   Establish 建 (Jiàn)
•   Remove 除 (Chú)
•   Full 滿 (Mǎn)
•   Balance 平 (Pīng)
•   Stable 定 (Dìng)
•   Initiate 執 (Zhǐ)
•   Destruction 破 (Pò)
•   Danger 危 (Wēi)
•   Success 成 (Chéng)
•   Receive 收 (Shōu)
•   Open 開 (Kāi)
•   Close 閉 (Bì)

In ancient china, Establish Day (建日) was the date the Emperor would pray to Heaven and Deities for a good harvest. In modern context, an Establish Day is suitable for getting engaged or marriage proposal, starting a new job or assuming a new role/ position at work, business transactions or dealings, or negotiations.

The Qi for this day also mean Starting-Off or Beginning. It is suitable for seeking medical treatment, commencing a major trip or travel plans, or to commence a new course or start school. It is also a good day for starting construction works (but not to be use for demolition / groundbreaking). Traditonally, Commencement / Establish Day is also generally not a good day to attend funerals or for burial. Especially, inauspicious if one’s year pillar or day pillar is in disharmony or clashed.

BaZi Perspective on Human Resources Development

BaZi or any other destiny forecast tool per se, beside analysing the personality and luck cycle of the Querent energy. It can also be use as a guiding tool on the skills set to develop when in comes to human resource.

Before using the 10 Gods or Deities concept in BaZi to dive in the various aspects of skills, Querent need to have a brief understanding on how the ‘Scoring Method’ is derived.

In this exercise, look at the scoring aspect, then apply Yin-Yang to pinpoint Direct or Indirect aspect.
if the scoring is 15% (+/- 5%) look up Friend/ Companion and Rob Wealth
if the scoring of the Day Element is around 20% (+/- 5%) – look up the skills relating to Resource Element (Direct Resource / Indirect Resource)
If the scoring of the Day Element is around 30% (+/- 5%) – look up wealth element (Direct / Indirect Wealth)
If the scoring of the Day Element is around 40% (+/- 5%) – look up the skills relating to Authority Element (Direct Officer / 7 Killing)
If the scoring of the Day Element is above 45% – look up the output (Hurting Officer / Eating God)

4 Pillars (四柱命理)

Key Indicators of Stable Marriage (For Ladies)

List is a common questions by Querent in a BaZi consult; everyone can self analyze + self help.

1. Day Master must be neutrally strong (elemental strength approx 20% of the entire chart) + has the Direct Officer (DO) or Direct Wealth (DW) or Direct Resource (DR).
2. Direct Officer or 7 Killing star ideally should be the Influence Element (i.e. Noble People or Peach Blossom).
3. Absence of Hurting Officer (HO) star that clashes and counters husband star (DO) in the same pillar. If presence, hopefully this star is weak or subdued.
4. Direct Wealth (DW) star that produces Direct Officer (DO) should have a link-flow or in the same pillar. Traditionally view as ‘wife prospers husband’ signs.
5. If the elementals or stars are presence but weak, Querent can self help by ‘Putology Method’.
6. If the elementals or stars are totally absence,  nothing much could be done. Querent would need to make use of other key aspect as a substitute. For example, Direct Officer absence = to make use of Indirect Wealth element, or if Blossom is absence = to make use of bath phrase Qi.

Serotonin is Yang, Melatonin is Yin

Serotonin is the key hormone that stabilizes our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness. This hormone impacts your entire body. It enables brain cells and other nervous system cells to communicate with each other.

1. Food source contains tryptophan, an amino acid that’s converted to serotonin.
2. Exercise.
3. Bright light.
4. Supplements.
5. Massage.
6. Mood induction.

https://www.healthline.com/health/how-to-increase-serotonin

Melatonin is a hormone primarily released by the pineal gland at night, and has long been associated with control of the sleep–wake cycle.

There are many things one can do to naturally increase melatonin levels without supplements.

1. Take A Break From Technology.
2. Start Dimming Lights Early.
3. Reduce Exposure to Blue Lights Before Bed Time.
4. Cut Back on Social Media.
5. Eat A Healthy Diet.
6. Increase Relaxation.

https://www.ourpaleolife.com/how-to-increase-melatonin/

Serotonin is primarily Yang Attribute (陽) while Melatonin is inherently Yin Nature (陰). This could share similarities with Feng Shui (風水). The HeTu (河圖) principle of origins (生數) and wholeness (成數).

Where:

• Number of Origins – 生數 – 1,2,3,4. These numbers are perceived as Yin (隂). And, these are the hours when Melatonin are active, recovery take place and we are linked up with the Universe/ Divine.
• Number of Wholeness – 成數 – 6,7,8,9. These numbers are perceived as Yang (陽). Which indicates start of the day, when productivity and creation begins. Where we begin the work of the Universe/ Divine.

Not going into the application or technicals of BaZi/ FengShui in this article. It merely to highlight the importance of this 2 zones… So that, our overall well-being improves.

Incidentally, this is the 2 zone where Manifestation, Prayers and Visualization are done, are communicated to the Universe/Divine and Responded or Realised.

Besides knowing what you are manifesting, to whom you are asking and the expectation/outcome; it is important to identify the source of energy or the chemistry rationale as well as the timing all this take place. In this case, Serotonin (陽) – Yang Hours and Melatonin (陰) – Yin Hours. In short, Taiji (太極); because, where the consciousness is… energy gathers.

P.S ~ For those familiar, Mudra would facilitate this activation as well. Because, our Qi Flow points also passes thru’ our palms and fingers.’

The Metaphysician view regarding Abortion and Miscarriage

In the course of learning and reading BaZi, most of the practitioner would come across this topic of pregnancy, abortion and miscarriage. The Querent would also be keen to know what Bazi combinations will indicate a higher tendency for abortion or miscarriage during a consultation.

In a positive light, the Querent want to know what is the probability of them having a miscarriage so that they can be better prepared and avoid such a situation / outcome.

This is a valid concern for them as miscarriage can be a very painful and traumatic experience. Depending on which side of the coin you flip, some would fall back on studies like ‘The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) estimates it is the most common form of pregnancy loss. It is estimated that as many as 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage and up to 10% of clinically recognized pregnancies ~ 29 Jan 2021’ to aid the patient move into acceptance and recovery.

From a BaZi perspective, it is rather rare to have a combination which give a 70% sure that abortion or miscarriage would happen. At best, it would be highlighted as a risk point. At this juncture, we need to separate it into Intentional or Accidental.

Regardless, intentional or accidental so long as life is loss, one needs to make an effort as do Deliverance Ritual for the Unborn Child. Needlessly to spell it out, for those who have gone thru’ this traumatic chapter would understand the spiritual entanglement and the negative luck it brings (and the impact to the overall well-being of household members).

Below are some key BaZi/ Feng Shui points based in past experiences.

1. Accidental miscarriage, the chart would likely indicate a risk of accident. Likely caused by Grand Duke, Month General or Day Officer.
2. Intentional abortion, the chart would have a natal punishment frame already in place, and it frequently being activated by the house Feng Shui.
3. A chart that is extremely heated or chilled has the risk of miscarriages.
4. A chart which hour pillar, Eating God or Hurting Officer (伤官食神) is in emptiness void has the risk of miscarriages or low affinity with children (i.e inability to conceive).
5. A chart which has the natal formation of ‘Condor Grabbing Food’ or ‘Hurting Officer Meets Authority’ is also a indicator of the risk of miscarriages or low affinity with children.
6. Hurting Officer or Eating God is in Sick/ Tomb/ Decay phrase.
7. Day Master is exceptionally weak. In rating method of BaZi, represent approx 10% of the entire chart. This usually indicate poorer health and constitution or less constructive lifestyle or nutritional habits.
8. Construction and Renovation (creates noise and irregular vibration) in the house during the various stages of Prenatal Development.
9. Life Gua of the baby and mummy are hit by externalities (i.e. Flying Stars, Poison Arrows, Changes to the Landform).

Lastly for ‘those’ Master involved in Date Selection for C-Section, beside choosing a good date for the baby; also be mindful to check that it doesn’t clashes, harm or pierce the BaZi chart of the Mummy. Because as a Metaphysician, I believe that by virtue of giving a date to the family, the practitioner is giving away his/ her blessing away to help the family and baby. The Karmic entanglement might be worth more than the monies earned from this activity.

Since, the Universe blessed us (The Practitioner / Master / Gurus / Enthusiast) with this piece of Metaphysics Knowledge and Skills, it is only right to return Universe the favour and also our duty to ‘Live in Service’ for those who need help in this aspect (keeping in mind and heart, the 3 Precepts.

“3 Precepts”
When there is no Affinity, I’ll pass.
When it’s against Conscience, I’ll pass.
When it affects others’ Feng Shui, I’ll pass.
