Zi Wei Dou Shu Q&A
This article is originally written in Traditional Chinese by Taiwanese Zi Wei Dou Shu and Feng Shui Master, Y.C.Chang. The author would like to thank Master Y.C. Chang for allowing full translation of his article. His web site (written in traditional Chinese) is http://www.lifeguide.com.tw. The original article in traditional Chinese can be found
To calculate Zi Wei Dou Shu chart, lunar calendar should be used. Do not use the solar calendar that is used to calculate “Four Pillar of Destiny” birth dates.
Use the 15th as the cut off. Let said that February is repeated, if birth date is from the 1st to the 15th, then use February to calculate birth chart; if birth date is after the 15th, then use March to calculate birth chart.
Manually calculate chart will improve ones ability to understand the relationship between the birth date and the stars’ strength and weaknesses. This will help one learn the basics and improve one’s ability to read charts. Many ancient texts dedicated a large portion of its contents to describe how to make a birth chart; this indicates ancient masters place high importance in such knowledge. Using computer will help beginners avoid spending too much time calculating chart and help them get started faster in evaluating his/her own birth chart. This does not mean learning how to manually create a chart is not important.
By learning Zi Wei Dou Shu, a student will be able to understand others and self, and then progress to helping others and self. It is very normal for people to experience many negative experiences during one lifetime. By learning Zi Wei Dou Shu, one can develop a more positive life view and can develop optimum life planning.
During one’s life journey, the most important point to remember is this: use the Zi Wei knowledge to fully utilize good luck during good luck periods and avoid making mistake during back luck periods. For example, during a good luck year, take actions to create a good and successful life. During a bad luck year, lay low and persevere, wait for better times to come; do not take high risk or actions that one will regret later, but can’t recover anymore.
Because everyone has different standards and opinions, it is not easy to judge what bad destiny is and what is not. However, Zi Wei Dou Shu does has a way to determine if one destiny is good or not, and a way to determine good luck and bad luck periods. Can one change destiny? Yes. To know how to change destiny would requires more in depth studies, thus it is not possible to answer in a short Q&A session.
San Fang are the three houses that aspect the current house. Counting from the current house, the fifth houses counted clock wise and counter-clock wise are two of them, the third one is the opposite house. San Fang plus the current house is called Si Zheng.
Parent house’s San Fang Si Zheng are: The “Health” house which opposite “Parent” house, the “Friends” house which is the fifth house counted clock wise, and the “Children” house which is the fifth house counted anti-clock wise. Including the “Parent” house, all four of them are call “San Fan Si Zheng” houses. Those houses influence each other.
Although these two stars are negative stars that signify sadness and worry, since those are not six main negative stars (Hou Xing, Ling Xing, Tou Luo, Qing Ynag, Di Kong, Di Jie), it is not as bad. These two stars must be aspected by those six main negative stars or Hua Ji to be truly bad. If a person’s luck year chart contains these two stars, then it mostly symbolizes negative views and worry, and will only turn really bad when aspect by other main negative stars.
Tai Yang is the sun. Tai Yin is the moon. If aspect by six auspicious stars, then they can both exhibits their positive energies. For example, if aspect by Wen Chang and Wen Qu, ancient texts indicate such person is born in a magnificent family. If aspect by many negative stars, then such person does not has a stable character, does not normally see things through, likely to make empty promises, and life normally has many obstacles.
Spouse House can provide information about marriage condition, how one gets along with the opposite sex and the spouse, and the importance of one’s spouse to the person. Other than this house, one still needs to examine the Spouse House’s “San Fang” houses, which are the Career House, Happiness House, and Travel house. This is because marriage life has effects on career, love life and marriage effect ones happiness, and travelling would indicate how often the spouses are together.
Yearly luck is the most important factor. If current year is not good, then all twelve months’ lucks are limited. At most one will see very brief good luck period; but this brief period has no ability to improve the overall yearly luck.
Basically when Wealth House has Huo Lu, it means the person has steady income. However, since Lian Zhen is not wealth star, even if Huo Lu in Wealth House, its benefit is limited. Unless it is also aspect by another Lu, like Lu Chun in the opposite house, then this formation provide the potential to be very wealthy.
Yes, one should consider daily luck’s four transformations. However, one needs to pick and choose which group’s transformations to use. Normally, using three levels of transformation is good enough. For example, for daily luck, one would consult the daily luck’s, monthly luck’s, and yearly luck’s four transformations.
Other than those Houses, one should still consult Travel House and Real Estate House (plus its aspect Houses). Destiny House is very important since a good or bad formation has major effect on one’s career quality and development.
If the houses have no auspicious stars, that means the Career House must aspect by negative stars. This normally mean a career that requires specialize skills or manual labor. If one could obtain specialized skill or work in a rare industry, one can still have career achievements.
If only one of the stars is in the Spouse house, then this would symbolize potential for a third party involvement, thus means potential for more than one marriage. However, if only aspect by one of the stars and not in the same house, then it is not going to have big influence. If both stars are involve at the same time, like both in Spouse House, both aspect the house, or each in the house next to Spouse House, then it actually promote good marriage life.
Normally, the Destiny House for the yearly luck chart should be aspect by stars that symbolize love luck like Tian Xi, Hong Luan, Tian Yao, Xian Chi, and Mu Yu (天喜、紅鸞、天姚、咸池、沐浴) and the luck year’s Destiny House or Spouse House should be aspect by Huo Lu. If also aspect by negative stars or Hua Ji, then it may means one has the opportunity to meet someone, but not able to go further than that.
Spouse House and related aspect houses are the main houses to examine. However, one should still examine the Destiny House. Destiny House symbolize one’s characters and behaviors, thus is closely related to ones love and marriage’s luck. Actually, no matter which House one is examining, one needs to examine the Destiny House at the same time in order to correctly judge the quality of the House.
This depends on which House has Hua Lu. If Wealth House has many Lu, then it means wealth luck. If Spouse House has many Lu, then it means love luck. Also, one should check if a house is aspect by Tian Xi, Hong Luan, Tian Yao, Xian Chi, and Mu Yu or not before determine if one has wealth luck or love luck or both.
During a luck year, if the luck year’s Destiny House, aspect Houses, and Happiness House does not aspect by Hua Ji, then it is normally ok to invest. If aspect by Wen Chang or Wen Qu Hua Ji, or aspect by both Hua Lu and Hua Ji, or Lu Chen and Hua Lu in the same House, then one should be very careful when investing.
Zi Wei Dou Shu can help ones fully understands one’s special characteristic, good and bad points and character changes. The most important characteristic of Zi Wei is the ability to predict the future. This is where Zi Wei Dou Shu life planning differs from other normal life planning methods. Zi Wei help one understands one’s characters and luck periods, thus help one to fully take advantage of good luck periods and avoid bad luck periods.
When one has good luck periods, as long as one has self confident, everything can be accomplished. However, most people have many up and downs in life. Zi Wei Dou Shu aims to predict the future for you so that you can plan your life accordingly. Normally those who encounter major disasters or losses are those who do not understand their bad luck periods. When one does not understand luck periods, it is easy to misjudge time of actions and thus one can suffer losses that can even affect the coming years’ luck.
