Day Master – Yi (Yin Wood)

The Yi Wood can be imagined as the slow-growing vine or creeping ivy. Yi Wood individuals are likable
and charming in their social interactions, positive traits attributed to their easy-going, agreeable personality. Not the type to shoot from the hip, the Yi Wood tends to showcase their finest when they are dealing with others, and can be quick-witted, flattering, and sharp around their friends or colleagues and families.

Networking, making connections, and uniting others are among the highlighted strengths you will find in a Yi Wood. They deploy their quick wit and fast thinking to resolve problems and people often turn to them when a quick decision is needed. Yi Wood individuals are likely to excel professionally, as they are highly motivated to expand on their talents and apply them to advance ahead in their careers. They also possess a strong moral compass and often put the needs of others ahead of their own.

Sometimes the Yi Wood neglect to survey the finer details of a situation. When the chips are down, the Yi Wood can become crafty rather than witty and resort to using devious tactics to survive. They know that their charm can be used to get other people to do things that align with their agenda, and they don’t mind stepping on others to get on board with their destination.

Just as a plant can be swayed by the slightest breeze, the Yi Wood have easily changeable emotions. Their fluctuating emotions can interfere with their thoughts, influencing their judgment, and decision-making capability. Yi Wood individuals are susceptible to the prevailing attitude of a group and will often go along with what other people want them to.

Day Master – Jia (Yang Wood)

If you want a good idea of the nature of a Jia Wood individual, think of a tall, sturdy, slow-growing tree – possibly an oak tree, teakwood tree, California redwood or something with similar characteristics of resilience and sturdiness. They are forthright and call it as they see it regardless of what company they are in.

They are grand thinkers who produce solutions to stand the test of time. They are not one to agree with other people for the sake of pleasing them. Usually, this can be seen as a positive trait, a Pillar of integrity, and an emphasis on principles rather than popularity. Jia Wood individuals care about others and have a kind side that is revealed over time as trust is earned.

They tend to be quiet and enigmatic unless in a familiar company. No time for pretenses, Jia Wood individuals call it like they see it even if this can cause offence or if others disagree. They are stubborn to the end and will go down with a sinking ship. They lack objectivity on things. They also lack the ability to question their choices or look at things from someone else’s point of view. When they ask for someone else’s opinion they just want to hear their own opinion in a different voice.

Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water like all of the Chinese Five Arts, the Five Element have both Yin and Yang polarity giving us a total of ten.

The 5 elements can be classified into Yin & Yang which know as the Ten Stems as they will appear on top part of the Bazi chart.:-

2. Yin Wood – represents are the leaves, flowers, 
small bushes, twines and vines and grass.

9. Yang Water – represents the waters of the ocean, waters of the lake or the powerful gushing waters of a river. 

10. Yin Water – represents water from rain clouds, mist, dew or frost. 

A typical Bazi Chart will have 4 pillars: hour pillar, day pillar, month pillar & year pillar. This time, imagine the BaZi pillars as a tree with roots underneath and towering leaves above. Now we have the Earthly Branches which represent the roots.

Chinese calendar expresses year, day, month and hour in terms of 5 elements by 2 Chinese characters and each character symbolises one basic element. The first character is written on top is called “heavenly stem” while the second Character written underneath is called “earthly branch”. 

There are 10 heavenly stems and 12 earthly branches and each of them symbolise an element.

The 12 earthly branches are the following:
1. Rat – Zi (Yang Water)
2. Ox – Chou (Yin Earth)
3. Tiger – Yin (Yang Wood)
4. Rabbit – Mao (Yin Wood)
5. Dragon – Chen (Yang Earth)
6. Snake – Si (Yin Fire)
7. Horse – Wu (Yang Fire)
8. Goat – Wei (Yin Earth)
9. Monkey – Shen (Yang Metal)
10. Rooster – You (Yin Metal)
11. Dog – Xu (Yang Earth)
12. Pig – Hai (Yin Water)

Before we can put the 5 basic elements to predict destiny, we must know that there is a seasonal aspects of the 5 elements. Our earth changes according to the 4 seasons, the prosperity and strength of elements also change with this natural cycle. 

Spring is the prosperous season for wood as all plants prosper in spring. 
Summer is associated with sun and fire and this is the time fire is considered most prosperous. 
Autumn is the season when leaves fall , it is time when wood element is weak and metal which destroyed wood becomes the strongest. 
Winter, water is considered strongest element because it is associated with ice and snow.

As for the Earth element is regarded as neutral and so its presence throughout the year earth element is particularly strong during last month of each season.

Journey to Chinese Metaphysics

In December 2019, my family trip to Taiwan has reignited my journey on Chinese Metaphysics, since then I started to gain a better understanding of Feng Shui.

On 5th January 2020, I stump upon Joey Yap’s Feng Shui & Astrology 2020, that is when I met Dato Joey Yap and attend his events for the very first time. It is an eye-opener for me which encourages me to learn and understand more about Chinese Metaphysics. I then move on to Bazi Academy and other of his courses.

As I began my journey to Chinese Metaphysics, I realize that there is too much information to learn, and it all overwhelming. Therefore I like to start a personal page that I can keep track of all my learning as well as to let those who are starting to learn Chinese Metaphysics kick start their learning with my sharing of knowledge. 

Feng Shui is a study of the living environment, which includes our earth, the landscape, the sea, the rivers, and the houses in which we stay.

It is about harnessing the Qi in your living environment to help you achieve your goals in life. It is about making your environment, whether your home or your office, into a space that will support your goals. 

There is a Chinese have a saying: “First destiny, second luck, third Feng Shui, fourth virtues, fifth education”. Although Feng Shui can be a powerful force in shaping our lives, it is not a cure for all ills. Luck, vitrues and knowledge also plays a significant part that we must not forget. 

Feng Shui is not a religion; it is a philosophy that can be used in any culture and alongside any belief system. There is one misconception of Feng Shui, it is not about the placement of objects and more accurate to say, as Joey Yap mention that, “Feng Shui is an art of assessing the qualities of Qi that converge at or affect a certain location in our environment and to ascertain its potential and shortcomings.” As the influence of Qi in any given environment is governed by certain patterns calculable by formulae, we can assess the potential of Qi in reference to time and location.

Singapore a country that I belong is also built on the Feng Shui principle. Let take a look at the article from AsianEntrepreneur:

Singapore and Feng Shui – It’s power and empowers for a Strong Nation (Part 1)
