5 Elements and the Feng Shui of the House

Looking at the person and to co-relate to the person’s house Feng Shui or looking at the Feng Shui and pinpointing one’s problematic areas, this aspect is also relate to the 5 elements and what it represents. Especially fluid when the one doing the assessment is an advanced or BaZi pro. Nothing to “Wow” once we understand how it is derived.

土 - 意 (Will)
金 - 魄 (Body)
水 - 志 (Mind)
木 - 魂 (Soul)
火 - 神 (Spirit)

1. Mind (志,relates to Water), this is related to a negative star or inauspicious landform in a water sector. The residents tend to have unclarity of thoughts, fear or trauma to take action and the inability to plan ahead. This often leads to unsound financial planning. It also stop the residents to start connecting with people as well as stop taking a changes that was really use to push forward, causing the residents to refuse learning new skills and acknowledging their shortcomings.


2. Spirit (神,relates to Fire), triggers when there is negative stars or landform in the fire sector. It often starts with depressed emotions and negative feeling towards money or to attach to certain emotional issue on certain thing (so much so that it begins to breed repetition). There also a feeling of scarcity blocking the residents to achieve better version of themselves, often leads to stagnant relationship. How do you know the residents has a Spirit issue? They way they talk – often rude and disrespectful.


3. Body (魄,relates to Metal), another way to understand this is the Chakra in our human body or when one feels he/she has no energy in doing things, too lethargic, energy level is often low. Normally, when the metal element in is afflicted, not only does the body is energetically drained, the household tends to have respiratory ailments. Residents of the property then to have a loyalty issue and inability to execute instructions.


4. Soul (魂,relates to Wood), a clear sign that affliction has affected this sector the residents needed anger management or the household lacks purpose, kindness and compassion. There might be also signs of alcoholism or drug misuse issues. Often leads to liver ailments.


5. Will (意,relates to Earth), is often seen when NE or SW of the apartment has affliction or when personal stability sector (Fu Wei) is visited by negative stars. If often leads to the lack of self esteem, overzealous ego and lack of stamina. When we are dealing with residents of such affliction, we can know when we are feeling lack of trust or the challenges to build trust with the person. The residents are also prone to sugary food and stagnation routine that leads to diabetes.

乙不离丙癸 / Yi Wood need to be accompanied by Bing Fire and Gui Water. Bing Fire represent natural light or Sun, Yi Wood as a flowering plant needs both water and Sun to nurtrient it.

A mild Solution to Mitigating BaZi problem

Keeping the post to the point – a frequent question receive recently (so decided to pen it down the solution for those who have affinity with this article).

Taking an example of Yang Fire (丙) Day-Master and 7-Killing as Yang Water (壬) and in a year where Tai Sui (太岁) induces Yang Water to cause legal, gossips (口舌官非) and challenges to the chart owner.

Solution: Using a 24 mountain feng shui compass, determine the position of Yang Water in the house / apartment. Examine that area and remove those item that directly / indirectly produce Yang Water (i.e. Yin Metal – Jewelry, key chain and coin etc or Water related such as water dispenser, diffusers). And, do this before the Tai Sui (太岁) changes – before Start of Spring (立春).

There is another method that uses personal life Gua number + 3×3 Grid and 6-Kins, slightly more complex than the above discussed.

A Simple 2022 Water Tiger Zodiac Analysis



Water Tiger or Ren Yin (壬寅) Tai Sui (太岁)was born in (鄂县) County in the Yuan Dynasty, named He Ben (贺贲), also known as He Yi (贺谔).  He Ben is a talented strategist,  thrive in offensive battle.  He was (later) was in charge of Army of Jingzhao.  When he died, he was posthumously named Duke Yong (雍国公)and given the title of Zhenxian (贞献); and later worship by common folks of that region.

The Chinese 12 Zodiacs animals are just symbolic representation of the seasonal / cyclical changes reference between the Sun and the Earth. As the Sun moves around the Galaxy in the Universe, it is represented by one of the sixty Tai Sui.

In 2022, the Sun position is at Ren Yin (壬寅)it has a direct influence on Monkey or Shen (申), Snake or Si (巳), Pig or Hai (亥).

To the Monkey, it represent a direct clash, a change in environment, moving house, changing job opportunities. It also represent a difference in viewpoint with your superior or seniors.

To the Snake, it represent a harm or affliction, direct towards health, mental wellbeing and interpersonal relationships. As well as doing things or eating (drinking) in excess.

To the Pig, it a broken sign, usually in areas of the mind, self talk and goals. This aspect also can be link to self sabotaging behavior (i.e. thing are running smoothly, suddenly you decide to change course of actions for no good reasons, end up hurting relationship and deviation from the expected outcome).

Which area the clash, harm, affliction and broken depends on the pillars.

The 4 aspect based on the 4 Pillars (BAZI):
年 Year embodies externalities, government, authority, social relationship, superiors, bosses, grandparents, uncle’s, aunties, in-laws and parents.
月 Month encapsulate work environment, colleagues, peers, friends, siblings relationship and a bit of family / household matters (i.e. Living Room / Space)
日 Day focus on primarily family environment, spouse relationship (i.e. behind closed doors). It also includes self as well as personal values.
时 Hours deals with personal aspirations, dreams hopes and fear. Skills & Talents. It also encompasses offsprings and children relationship or matters.

注意 (Alert): The cutover point for TaiSui is always at the Start of Spring (立春), and not Chinese New Year.

Activating the South (Palace 9, Wu position) and Northeast (Palace 8, Chou position) sector would be a good help to induce the lucky stars as well as the Zodiac elemental combination so as to reduces these clash, harm and afflictions. Picking a good date would +points in term of higher energy activation level.

4 Pillars (四柱命理)

5 Element, Love Languages and Spirituality

The 5 Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water) not only represent organs and physical body in BaZi. It also represent other intriguing aspects such as emotions, spiritual and love languages.

Wood Element in conventional BaZi relates with liver and sour taste. It also represent aspects of the spirit, repress anger as well as a need for time. In a work environment Wood indicates a need for both intrinsic and extrinsic growth; as well as passive and active growth. Passive is a need (i.e. mentor, coach and teachers inducing the growth on an individual) while Active is becoming a driver for others’ growth (i.e. becoming the mentor, coach and teacher).

Fire centers around heart, blood and bitter taste. It represent aspects of the mind, clarity and gravitate towards religious study. It is also associated with happy feeling and a need for movement or taking actions. In work environment, it trigger the need to establish relationship. In a social setting, fire people are more feeling oriented and passionate.

Earth are related to will power, and much about stomach ailment as well as the need for touch as a form of love language. In an active sense, earth related with determination while on passive sense it usually translate into negativity thinking and calling up of pass emotions (as earth also translate into planning and thinking far ahead). In work environment or as a social setting, need for earth also means a need for security and stability. And, change is a challenge for earth.

Metal walks with the soul and it seen as yearning for gifts as a form of love language. Metal is produce by earth and therefore it triggers worries. In work setting, it is often regarded as a sense of importance or recognition as well as the ability to execute a task, goal or strategy.

Water deals with determination, the human kidney as well as salty taste. In love language it often refer to as word of appreciate. Water can also relates with fear. In a positive sense, fearless and love taking on challenges and risk, while in a passive sense would be fearful. Therefore, in a work environment one with active water enjoy challenges and change while the other is stagnant and resist changes.

4 Pillars (四柱命理), Flying Stars (玄空飛星風水), QMDJ (奇門遁甲)

Demystify Academic Stars

During the era of the past, BaZi practitioner learn BaZi by way of memorize verse and poems. In the modern time, there is a rely on techonlgy such as Apps and Online Calculator.

In the poem (below), let’s take a closer look and understand the corresponding stems/ branch. And we would realize that the 4 Earth Branch often regarded as tomb or storage (i.e Dragon, Dog, Ox. Goat) are left out.

甲乙巳午報君知,
丙戊申宮丁己雞。
庚豬辛鼠壬逢虎,
癸人見卯入雲梯。

Yang Wood Corresponding with Snake
Yin Wood Corresponding with Horse
Yang Fire Corresponding with Monkey
Yin Fire Corresponding with Rooster
Yang Earth Corresponding with Monkey
Yin Earth Corresponding with Rooster
Yang Metal Corresponding with Pig
Yin Metal Corresponding with Rat
Yang Water Corresponding with Tiger
Yin Water Corresponding with Rabbit

The Academic Stars are basically the Day Stem’s output branch (i.e. Wood produce Fire) only exception is Earth which goes on to the next element as Metal; there is a FengShui reason and application for it. The Academic Stars comes in both polarity – Yin / Yang branch that is associated with Day Stem.

In the classics, ONLY the day stem is taken as the point of reference. Whereas in modern days there is a NEW-AGE view and the BaZi year, month and hour (or even minutes) stems are regard as reference points. And, it has also been programmed and build into Apps and Online Calculator. There is no right or wrong, it’s therefore up to each practitioner application and analysis.
