I would like to share how do you identify your own 10 Gods easily by know your own Day Master(DM).
Earlier i have already explain about the interaction between 5 elements which is basically about the Productive, Weakening and Controlling Cycle.
Regardless of what elements you are, the element will form five types of relationship which are:
- Produce Me is known as Resource
- I Produce is known as Output
- I Control is known as Wealth
- Control Me is known as Influence
- Same Element is known as Companions
Example if you are a Wood Day Master person:
- Water produce you (Resource)
- You produce Fire (Output)
- You control the Earth (Wealth)
- Metal control you (Influence)
- Wood is the same element as You (Companions)
These 5 types of relationship we call it 5 structure of Bazi. These 5 structure is then identify as Connector, Thinker, Creator, Supporter and Manager.
With these 5 Structure it further branch out into 10 Gods and the are:
- The Director – Direct Wealth (DW)
- The Pioneer – Indirect Wealth (IW)
- The Artist – Eating God (EG)
- The Performer – Hurting Officer (HO)
- The Friend – Friend (F)
- The Leader – Rob Wealth (RW)
- The Diplomat – Direct Officer (DO)
- The Warrior – Seven Killings (7K)
- The Analyser – Direct Resource (DR)
- The Philosopher – Indirect Resource (IR)
So how do we identify our own 10 Gods from our Day Master? If you still do not know your Day Master, Plot you chart here.
- We need to know what is the polarity of each Day Master(DM). For Example: 甲(Jia) Wood is Yang (+) Polarity while 乙(Yi) Wood is Yin (-) Polarity.
- The element that is same as me is Companions(F, RW) , what I produce is Output(EG, HO), what is counter is Wealth IW, DW) what counter me is Influence(DO,7K) what produce me is Resource(IR, DR)
- We will follow these table for easier understanding:
|5 Structure||Element Relationship||The Associated 10 Gods|
|Companions||When Same polarity as DM||Friend|
|Companions||When Opposite polarity as DM||Rob Wealth|
|Wealth||When Same polarity as DM||Indirect Wealth|
|Wealth||When Opposite polarity as DM||Direct Wealth|
|Influence||When Same polarity as DM||Seven Killing|
|Influence||When Opposite polarity as DM||Direct Officer|
|Output||When Same polarity as DM||Eating God|
