Qi Men – The Death Door

Death Door represents death and ageing. It is often associated with negative energy and stagnated Qi. It can have a stifling effect and delay or halt one’s progress and growth. Thus, it is considered an inauspicious Door overall. With that said, death is an essential part of life and the Door fulfils a necessary function. All things must come to an end, nothing and no one lives forever and the Death Door marks the end of a journey. However, since death is also one half of the natural cycle of life, it also signifies the start of a new cycle. As death ends, life begins.

For all the grimness of the Death Door and its morbid connotations, it does not deserve to be feared the way it is; it helps maintain harmony in the Universe and keep things moving. The Door’s effects are far- reaching, for there is nowhere in Heaven and Earth that is safe from its influence. Its touch can be seen in the colours of autumn and the falling leaves.

If the Death Door resides with one of the 3 Nobles, it is beneficial to hunting and good for finding and seeking someone or something.

Natal Position: The Death Door is an Earth element Door. It originates in the Kun Palace in the southwest.

Representation: Kun itself represents mother, winter, convergence, darkness, concealment and death.


As mentioned, the Death Door helps perpetuate the cycle of life and death, fulfilling a necessary function. It is beneficial for executions of punishment. It can also help one better appreciate and connect with their ancestors or carry out religious and spiritual activities. It can help avert negative energies or Sha Qi from propagating and block harmful spirits. Finally, gravediggers and graveyard maintenance are eased by the Death Door.


The Death Door will hamper one’s growth and career progress and is unsuitable for matters of finance. It can cause financial loss or stagnation.

Because of the Death Door’s obvious connections with death, its effects are unhelpful to those seeking medical treatment because it can reduce the efficacy and prevent recovery. Among the general population, the Death Door drives ageing and all of the ailments associated with it.

I am SH, a Chinese Metaphysics enthusiast, practitioner, consultant, life transformation coach and also the Founder of SH Astrology Consulting. Chinese Metaphysics such as Bazi and QiMen as always fascinated me. I am always amazed by how Bazi and QiMen could forecast the outcomes and relate encounters that a person can experience with great accuracy when it is being applied correctly. When it come to Feng Shui, the studying of the flow of Qi (Chi) energy can influences the environment around us.These energies can directly or indirectly affect how we operate and affect what we want to achieve. With proper practice, we can create opportunities that help us achieve our goals. SH Astrology was created to share my knowledge in BaZi and also some other Chinese Metaphysics systems like QiMen, Feng Shui, Yi Jing. I would also like to debunk some myths, and irrelevant concepts or beliefs in Chinese Metaphysic which cause confusion and fear in people’s life.
