In BaZi (八字), it is often related to the 5 Elements (五行) and getting it balanced. And so we have 8 characters in the BaZi (八字) to divide among 5 Elements (五行).
Therefore mathematically, 8 divide by 5 = 1.6 So, each element needs to be 1.6 of a character to be effectively balanced (but, how to cut up the character to have 0.6 of a character?).
Perhaps, in essence when the ancients created this system of astrology, it was never meant to be balanced but constantly in motion toward the state of harmony. And therefore in momentum, balance is achieved.
Or, we could use the natal chart + luck pillar to form exactly 10 words. Hence, mathematically achieving 2 words per element (as a form of balance).
Just a sharing or perhaps an observation to help everyone grow in BaZi skills, knowledge and assessment.
In a BaZi assessment, there are times when the signs such as 傷官見官 hurting officer attacking authority could be quite subtle.
Let’s take snake 巳 for example. The hidden stems in 巳 are 丙戊庚. For a someone whose day pillar is 乙 wood born in year, month, day or hour of Snake. Hidden in Snake 巳 are both Bing 丙 would be hurting officer and Geng 庚 as direct authority.
So when Grand Duke 太歲 influence the stems to move, there could be hints of 傷官見官 happening in the mind of there Querent.
In a positive aspect, if Querent 乙 has 申 monkey. Wealth, Authority, Resource 财官印 become readily available in the chart.
