What is the definition of Useful God (UG) in the study of Bazi?
Useful God is the most important element in a Bazi or to the destiny. It is the element that makes the Day Master most useful. There are few categories of Useful God and each have their inherent role in the chart but still collectively they are referred to as Useful God or in short UG because they makes the chart good or as in a high quality chart.
A high quality chart will have a UG and this translate to a person having the capability to rise to the top or make it big in life. A bad Bazi chart will usually not have UG and thus it translate to a medium achieving person. Then worse still one has Annoying or Offending God or Ji Shen in the chart or luck, you can imagine how bad things can go.
So from here you can deduce that since it is the most important element in a chart, it must be protected at all times just like how you will protect your dearest or assets.
Happiness God 喜神
While some schools call it favourable god, I would call it the Happiness God because this is also the secondary UG. Its role is to makes the chart “happy” and that would translate to happy events coming in real life.
Having Happiness God in one’s chart is also a positive thing and will raise the gradation of the chart.Continue reading “Useful God 用神”
