A rarely discuss, nor a hardly ever analyze topic of elements in Zi Wei Dou Shu (ZWDS).
In a Flying Star ZWDS chart, there are twelve palaces, ten heavenly stems, plus 18 stars residing in a particular palace.
The auspiciousness of any palace with a similar element of Earthly Branch, Heavenly Stem, and a similar element of Star produce positive results to the palace. These trio-configuration suggest good relations of the palace to the individual.
For example, if the Wealth Palace is in the Earthly Branch of the Monkey, or Rooster, and the Heavenly Stem is Geng or Xin, and the Star is Wu Qu or Qi Sha, the combination of all these similar metal elements residing together is highly auspicious to the individual. If found in any of the six relationships palaces, the individual would have positive relationship to that palace.
The configuration follows:
|Jia / Yi||Tiger / Rabbit||Tian Ji, Tan Lang, Hua Ke|
|Bing / Ding||Snake / Horse||Tai Yang, Lian Zhen, Hua Quan|
|Wu / Ji||Ox / Dragon / Ram / Dog||Zi Wei, Tian Fu, Tian Liang|
|Geng / Xin||Monkey / Rooster||Wu Qu, Qi Sha, Wen Chang, Hua Lu|
|Ren / Gui||Rat / Boar||Tian Tong, Tai Yin, Tian Xiang, Ju Men, Po Jun, Wen Qu, Hua Ji|
****** Similarly productive elements are beneficial as well.
Wood Element produces Fire
Fire Element produces Earth
Earth Element produces Metal
Metal Element produces Water
Water Element produces Wood
****** But, destructive cycle elements causes negative effect.
This is not necessary conclusive but given at ‘face-value’ of the positive results. The advance technique through analyzing the flying effects from the respective Heavenly Stem produces further clarification of the auspiciousness (such as how the Four Catalysts transformed). That is the awesomeness of the Flying Star Zi Wei Dou Shu (Flying Purple Star Astrology).
This is a common question, and the accuracy is profound.
When someone ask if they should start a business, the approach is to analyze the Decade Wealth Palace, and not the Decade Career Palace.
The Decade Wealth Palace indicates the potential to create money, and wealth from all the resources there is available. In order to justify a positive outcome, the Decade Wealth should Hua Lu to any palaces, and Hua Ji to the internal (own) palaces. This means that the Hua Ji to the internal palaces is the gain at the end. The Hua Lu is the cause (the beginning), and how the money is to be derived. Yes, in Zi Wei Dou Shu, it can be very specific to the industry ,and the timing to implement for positive outcomes.
On the other hand, the Decade Career Palace indicates a good source of earn income from the specific industry, and role (working for someone else), or a stressful ‘dead-end’ job if the signals are bad in that Ten-Years.
* Most of the problems in your life is due to two reasons: you act without thinking, or think without acting;
* You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream;
* Comparing yourself to others is one of the root causes for feelings of unhappiness, and depression.
