The Stems, The Branches and The Hidden Stems

As we all know a Bazi chart comprises of 4 pillars.  Each pillar is derived from the Year, Month, Day and Hour of birth respectively.  And each pillar consists of Heavenly Stem, Earthly Branch and Hidden Stem as follows:-

So what are these Heavenly Stem, Earthly Branch and Hidden Stem represent?

The 10 Heavenly Stems (The Stems)

Based on the five elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water; and their Yin Yang factor comes the 10 Heavenly Stems of:-

Jia (Yang Wood-Tree) and Yi (Yin Wood-Flower)

Bing (Yang Fire-Sun) and Ding (Yin Fire-Candle Flame)

Wu (Yang Earth-Mountain) and Ji (Yin Earth-Soil)

Geng (Yang Metal-Iron) and Xin (Yin Metal-Gold)

Ren (Yang Water-Sea) and Gui (Yin Water-Rain)

The Stems represent the external perceptions of a person in life.  They are what the person project for people to see – his character, outlook, matters, events and relationships that are obvious.  Or you may call what “Heaven” gives to a person.  And it looks real to the outside world.  It is like a packaging, what people see on the outside and provides us a glimpse of what’s inside too.  The reality is, what’s outside (appearance) may not be exactly what’s inside (the real you).  Stems represent appearances and surface outlook.  It can also represent opportunities available.  A person may look, say, wealthy or hardworking, but is he really?  For example, there is a wealth element on the Stem but if that element is not rooted (meaning there is no wealth element in the Branches) or it is not supported by output element, he may look rich but in reality he is not.  At the best scenario, there is wealth opportunities for him but whether he makes it, is another story.

Obama vs Romney

As we all know, Obama just won the presidential election again.  While the topic of the presidential election is still hot, let us take a look at both the candidates’ Bazi chart and see what they say.  What makes Obama win and not Romney?  As the President of the United States, the person heralds great authority, status and position.  Hence, we shall evaluate the quality of the Power stars, i.e. the Direct Officer star and the 7 Killings star in their chart.

Obama

He is a strong Ji Day Master with Friend Structure, sitting on Si (Bing is one of Ji’s noble elements).  Hence his wife is of great help to him and a significant supporter.  His other noble element is Jia Wood (his Direct Officer star) and it is located at his Hour Pillar, indicating his career is good which can give him power and status.   And this Jia Wood is sitting on Wu, his Rob Wealth star.  Though Jia sitting on Wu is overall not an excellent pillar, it is nevertheless also not a poor pillar either, because Wood no matter what still needs Earth to be around for support.   His Year Stem of Xin (Eating God) is countering Yi (7 Killing) in the Month Stem.  This is being translated into the Day Master using his intelligence to control his power, as both stars are equally strong and of good quality, having roots respectively.

Obama won his first presidential election during his Xin Mao Pillar (Eating God-7 Killing Pillar).   This is the pillar of intelligence with power, having his 7 Killing star firmly rooted.   Due to the clash, it is an indication that this power doesn’t bring glory, but challenges and obstructions instead.

He is currently entering into a Geng Yin Pillar, where he again won the presidential election the second time around.  Once he entered this pillar, his Jia Wood (Direct Officer star) in his chart is being rooted and strong, giving him a strong foundation to hold on to his power.   Jia Wood is also his noble element and needs Geng Metal (Hurting Officer) to chop to make his Jia Wood useful and noble.  Hence, we can say that this pillar is in fact great for him, as compared to Xin Mao pillar.  This pillar will bring him great glory and much influence.

Romney

He is a weak Geng Day Master with Direct Wealth Structure, sitting on Yin (Jia Wood is Geng Metal’s favorable element), so we can conclude that his wife is quite supportive of him.  Unlike Obama whose noble elements are very close to him, Romney has no noble element in his Hour Pillar, his career palace.  His noble element of Ding Fire is in the Year Stem, and it is too far to ask for support, and is also involved in countering situation with Gui Water (Hurting Officer) in the Month Stem.  Direct Officer does not want to see Hurting Officer next to him as this compromised the quality of the Direct Officer, making it questionable.

His current luck pillar is Bing Shen (7 Killings-Friend Pillar).  With Bing Shen, his 7 Killings stars become rooted and strong, and the weak Geng Day Master also becomes rooted in Shen.   So, this may indicate potentiality for Romney to win as his power element is strong in this pillar as well.  But bear in mind, Geng Metal Day Master favors Ding Fire more than Bing Fire, as Geng Metal needs Ding Fire to forge to make it useful and noble.   With Bing Fire, it’s more likely the scorching Sun will burn the Geng Metal more than anything else, resulting in his loss.

The Results ?

Of course, in both charts, there are interactions of control, clash and combination going on in the luck pillar, and we will not go into details and elaborate on those.  Suffice to say, it is more likely the Noble Elements of the Power star determines the winner.   Obama has beautiful and usable Noble Element of Direct Officer in Jia Wood, which is also his Useful God; whereas Romney’s 7 Killing star in Bing Fire is not his Noble Element and also not usable to the Day Master.

Water Day Masters

Understanding (Ren) Water Character (Yang Water)

Just like waters of rivers and sea or waterfalls, they flow continuously everywhere, and drawn into various kinds of things, the Ren person is worry free and optimistic; they do not mind the past and are filled with courage to move on.

They show enthusiasm in whatever they do.  They like to help others and don’t mind hardships.  They are vivacious, lively, high-spirited, and often become the center of attraction.

They are high adaptable to change in any circumstances.  They are also quick to grasp and will not miss any good opportunity that comes along.  Once the drive kicks in, they will overcome all difficulties to meet their objective to reach their goal.

Ren people are clever, intelligent and full of inspiration.  They can be endowed in both civil and martial virtues, have leadership qualities, and are able to outshine and surpass themselves from others.

Shortcomings are that although they have a well-rounded personality, they are willful.  They can be lazy and this causes them to be dependent on others easily.  Ren people are very fond of freedom, dislike to be restrained or controlled.  As a result, they are not able to hold on to the last-minute at times.  They are also easily affected and get entangled in love relationships.

Understanding (Gui) Rain Character (Yin Water)

Rain and dew are weak and fine, and can be soaked or immersed fully in object.  Therefore, Gui people are steady and peaceful, diligent, hardworking and have high level of endurance.

They have an introvert personality, are honest and down-to-earth.  They can be very weak when managing their feelings.  They are nervous, like to have fantasies and romantic feelings or thoughts.

In order to attain the real meaning of life, they allow their hearts and feelings to lead them to pursue their dreams and goals.  They may pay attention to rules and morals, but due to wishful thinking and fantasies, they may not be able to know and understand reality.  Hence, they can unknowingly engage in meaningless matters, sometimes putting too much thought into a small matter and this could lead to doubtful and distrustful thinking.

Gui people are very pure and innocent, and can be affected over very small or meaningless matters.  They are sympathetic towards others but also can be cool and clear-headed at times.  They are very sensitive to feelings and will tend to hide  their own feelings from others.  Therefore, they can appear mild on the outside.  They pay much attention to the way of life, to live their dreams and enjoy lives to the fullest.

Metal Day Masters

Understanding (Geng) Iron Character (Yang Metal)

Like a sword being sharpened for war, Geng people are strong and hard when compared to others of the same nature. They are sharp, determined, straightforward, strong-willed, and do not admit failure easily.  They show much enthusiasm and determination in whatever they do, as they do not want to waste time thinking and contemplating, and once they have made a decision, they will take action without any hesitation.

Geng people exercise great comprehension and will spare no effort to upgrade oneself.  They can be proficient in a skill most of the time; apply and reap benefits from what they have studied or learnt.

They are ruled by the belief systems and principles, thus they have a strong sense of justice. are against unfairness or hypocritical behaviour.  They also have a chivalrous heart; when they see others suffering from injustice, they will stand up for those suffering.

One of their shortcomings is stubborness; after decided on something, they will not change their decision under any circumstances.  Superficially, they are unbending rather than stubborn, and hard rather than tough.

Geng people are also careless, not paying much attention to fine details or feelings.  They can also show little or no mercy for people whom they do not like, hence will make enemies very easily.

Understanding (Xin) Gold Character (Yin Metal)

Yin Metal person is usually associated with precious stones and jewerly.  As in the golden silver pearl, jade can be split to emit a unique radiance, and is sensitive to heat and electricity.   Thus, Xin people have very fine feelings, and have unique opinions.  They are very approachable and helpful to others.

Xin people are very sharp and quick in thinking, have fine morals and are usually attractive and charming.    They will attract attention wherever they go, either in looks or intellect.  They are very sociable and can get into or maintain good friendships.  They will be able to differentiate between good and bad distinctly.  Their self respect is strong.

They love new things, indulge in vanity and hence can spend unwisely most of the time.  They possess an acquisition disposition and easily succumb to temptations.  They are more easily bought by those seeking their favour.

Xin people can be stubborn when it comes to having their own opinions but if a person knows how to persuade them, they are not difficult to bend.   Like a beautiful, shining Gold bar, they mind very much about their external looks. making sure they look presentable at all times.  They like to ensure the best of circumstances and situations.  Their downfall is they placed great importance on face value and status.

Earth Day Masters

Understanding (Wu) Mountain Character (Yang Earth)

People of this element are like the great earth or stone rock.  They are trustworthy and optimistic, open-minded and steady, carefree, strict and honest.  Although their innate quality is like stone, they deserve to be appreciated for their stability.

Wu Day Master will always make sure that the foundations is strengthened before taking the time to put in effort, feelings or commitment.  Like the Earth or rock, change will not occur suddenly; instead changes will take place slowly, over many years.  With such a nature, they may miss opportunities sometimes.  However, they are happy with their current situation.  Once they have decided on something, nothing can change their mind.  In other words, Wu person can be stubborn at times. However, because of this nature enable them to inspire faith unto others.

Wu person is amicable and appreciates and treasures relationships, and because of this, others will tend to seek consultation from them.  Wu person will not promote himself to others.

Their shortcomings are being willful, self-centered and stubborn which can lead to non-coherence and not able to mingle or socialize well.  Wu person is inflexible and does not change his opinions easily.  This tends to lead to a monotonous lifestyle. Often considered as people with uninteresting speeches.  Their self-respect is very strong and having good reputation is important to them.  However, they do not indulge in flatter from others.

Understanding (Ji) Moist Earth Character (Yin Earth)

Field earth or rich earth is sufficient to absorb adequate moisture, and is a depository for various kinds of nutrients.  It is the place for cultivating various plants.  Ji Day Master’s understanding, learning and grasping of knowledge is rapid; in other words, they are versatile.

Majority of Ji People are very steady and kind.  However, their heart is very complex and may not be as good as they appear to be.  They are considerate and hardworking, and others will see their potential to substantiate and improve themselves, hence they can attain high achievements.

Besides, rich field earth has a soft, flexible comfortable nature.  Therefore, they know very well when to retreat and when to advance in different circumstances or situations.  They have high adaptability.

Shortcomings are that their concentration levels are not that high; they are rash at times, tend to compromise easily on decisions made, and at times will be taken for granted by others.

Fire Day Master

Bing Day Master (The Sun)

If you are a Bing (Yang Fire) day master, imagine the Sun energy.  This is big and active fire, and channelling warmth across earth and all things.  A Bing day master thus radiates warmth and radiance, and is vibrant, vivacious and sunny in disposition.

This is a person who is open, frank, generous and full of warmth, passion and enthusiasm. honest, passionate and upright.  Bing people are generally cheerful and well-liked by others.  They have leadership capabilities and will not stop until they attain their goals.

Like the Sun, Bing day masters are big-hearted and of striking personality.  They are not only amicable and lenient, but also very energetic, show enthusiasm and interest in all things, and will actively hands-on in action.  They like to do big things.

However they also have big ego and pride.  Just like the Sun, day in and day out, it does the same thing.  Hence, Bing people very often are routined oriented and easily become complacent and get stuck in one way.

As Bing people are dynamic in nature, since the Sun looking across the earth, can create benefits as well as unhealthy or harmful reactions especially scorching hot when one gets too near, they play both the good and the bad roles in their lives.  They can be impatience and have a tendency to waste.  Also prone to mood swings every now and then.  Sometimes they can be conceited and sometimes they have a merciful heart.  So friends tend to come and go.

Bing characteristics will defer according to their overall Bazi chart and will depending greatly on what time the person is born.  Are you born day time or night?

Ding Day Master (Fire Flame)

Ding (Yin Fire) or Fire Flame character are of softer and milder disposition.  Like a candle, even though small but still gives out warmth.  Ding day masters are quiet, warm and unhurried. Their endurance and tolerance level are very high which is opposite of Bing (Sun) people.  They are conservative, courteous and passionate.

Ding people’s contemplation is profound, their behaviour is careful and cautious. Their thinking is like a careful vanguard, planning every matter to completion.  This is like the nature of a small fire, from ignition it burns anything until it turns into ashes.  They can be likened to a fire burning slowly, sacrificing oneself to bring warmth to those near them.  Hence, Ding people will tend to be very close to those who, they know very well.

Fire Flame character are illuminating in nature, hence they are born leaders, a person who takes pride in showing people the way.   They are great motivator but are easily demotivated as well.   Like the candle flame, they can also be very fickle, swaying according to the wind.

Candle fire flame is only brightest at night, so those who are born at night will generally have good achievement.  They will be useful to society and attract attention easily.  If you are born in the morning or day, the person will not be so illuminating.  In a way, Ding peaks in performance when the sun loses its radiance.  As such, Ding comes handy at night.

Yi Day Master (Yin Wood – Flower Character)

Yi Day Master (Yin Wood)

To understand Yi (Yin Wood) is to understand Flower character.  Yi (Yin Wood) are soft wood in nature.  Like a small plant growing softly and gently and emerging as a beautiful and gorgeous flower, Yi people are mild and expressive.  They like to seek improvement and development in one’s own environment.

As in a small plant or flower, Yi day master reacts and responds sensitively to small changes of conditions.  From here, we can see that Yi people are quick-witted and are able to adapt quickly to any change in circumstances which is the opposite of Jia day master which is hard wood in nature.

Like a little flower, they may appear weak but can still grow well in a harsh environment.  In a typhoon, the small plants will sway and move in the direction of the wind.  Hence, Yi day master will not wither easily even though trodden as long as their roots are still intact.  As a result, we can say that Yi people are not only very flexible and adaptable, but they are also very realistic and will always ‘find’ their way in life, i.e. they are survivalist in nature.

Shortcomings are that they are very dependent on others.  They can be fickle, change mind quickly and do not stick to one course of action.  They can be swayed by temptations and may be deceived or misled by others easily.

As in a small flower, Yi people require Sunlight (Bing-Yang Fire) to bloom, and they also like Water (Gui-Yin Water), such as dew and rain where water is most gentle.  If there is no Sun and Dew, then they will twirl on Trees (Jia-Yang Wood) to reach out for the Sun so that they can bloom and earn our attention.

In Bazi, which Day Master are you?

What is a Day Master?

Where is it located in a Bazi chart?

It’s found in the Day Stem.  The rest of the stems and branches in the Bazi chart represent their influences to your life and pathways.

How do you know which Day Master are you?

Please click at the Bazi calculator of Destiny Empire to key in your date and time of birth, and from there you will find your Bazi chart and your Day Master.

Having done that, you now know which Day Master you belong to.  There are basically 10 Day Masters as follows:-

  1. Tree (Jia-Yang Wood)
  2. Flower (Yi-Yin Wood)
  3. Sun (Bing-Yang Fire)
  4. Candle Flame (Ding-Yin Fire)
  5. Mountain (Wu-Yang Earth)
  6. Soil/Moist Earth (Ji-Yin Earth)
  7. Iron (Geng-Yang Metal)
  8. Gold (Xin-Yin Metal)
  9. Sea Water (Ren-Yang Water)
  10. Rain (Gui-Yin Water)

Let’s start with Jia Day Master (Tree)

If you are a Jia Day Master, you have qualities of a Tree.  Imagine what a Big Tall Tree looks like.  Its trunk, branches and leaves will extend themselves to reach out to sunlight for growth while its roots will stay firmly in the ground.  In this way, Jia Day Masters characteristics are such that they will exert themselves to plan and develop in order to move upward from their current situation.

They are steady, strong and upright and have strong will-powered, and will not be easily swayed.  They are very direct and out-spoken people and will say whats on their mind, not knowing they may hurt people by their directness and bluntness.  They may appeared as unfeeling, not because they are heartless but because they do not tune to what is going around them.

However, from the shades of the trees, you will notice that they provide shades  and shelter to people.  In this way, Jia people are able to sympathise and empathize with others, and will not turn away when someone is in need of help.  They are also very honest and straight forward.

Since their roots are always firmly rooted in the ground, Jia people are reluctant to changes, and if changing circumstances are forced upon them, it will be slow and gradual.  Contrary to this, due to the Tree’s growth nature, they are always slowly changing, however, not easily seen.  They can also be stubborn and not as quick-witted as other day masters.

Tree (Jia) characteristics will be different depending on which season or month you were born.  There will be different types of Jia Wood from various parts of the world, as conditions and climate will affect the Trees and Woods.

Trees born in Winter are frozen Tree, whereas born in Summer are burnt Tree.  Are you a Jia Wood born in Winter, or Summer, or Autumn, or Spring?

Which Jia Wood are You?
