Qi Men – The Delusion Door

The Delusion Door represents Wood element, the mysterious and the unexpected, including setbacks and disasters. It represents blockage and is also associated with stagnation and a lack of opportunities. It is, in general, an inauspicious Door. Although the Delusion Door is inauspicious, it may help one escape from an existing threat. It is also good for hunting.

Natal Position: Located in the Xun  Palace of the southeast sector. The Xun Palace represents Wood and Wind.

Representation: The Xun Palace is situated between its “father and mother”, Qian and Kun , torn between both of them. Thus, the Delusion Door – which resides in the Xun Palace – is associated with the aforementioned difficulties.

Strengths

Although the Delusion Door is considered inauspicious overall, it is helpful in a number of situations. For one, it can help people hunt and fish more successfully. It can also help law enforcement personnel apprehend thieves and criminals. Debt collectors may also benefit from the Delusion Door. Since the Delusion Door represents “hiding away”, it also favours solitary activities such as studying and research.

The Delusion Door is associated with secrecy so it is good for transmitting, delivering and receiving confidential information, as well as carrying out covert operations. It is also ideal for enjoying solitary activities such as meditation and practising mindfulness.

Nefarious people may use the Delusion Door to impede others or bring misfortune upon their enemies. It can also help one elude their enemies or avoid capture.

Weaknesses

The Delusion Door is unsuitable for carrying out all wealth-related pursuits. People who plan to travel should also avoid the Delusion Door, as it may derail their travel arrangements or complicate matters. When meeting a friend or family member, the Delusion Door can make it hard for them to recognise you.

Qi Men – The Harm Door

The Harm Door symbolises destruction and harm inflicted by one person upon another. It is associated with setbacks and tragedies. It can hinder one’s travel, expansion and career plans. It can also prevent one from beginning a successful marriage, building something new or carrying out a renovation – with all signs pointing it to be the most inauspicious Door.

Natal position: In the East, Zhen Palace belongs to the Wood element, which is at its strongest during the spring season.

Representation: The strong people, thunderous weather and movement. This movement refers to the movement towards something undesirable: that is to say that the Harm Door’s effects are always inauspicious.

Note that when the Harm Door resides alongside one of the 3 Nobles, it can produce some positive effects. Specifically, it can help one catch a thief, collect debts and hunt, fish or gamble successfully.

Strengths

As mentioned, the Harm Door is among the most inauspicious of the 8 Doors. With that said, it can help a person in some very specific situations provided that it resides alongside one of the 3 Nobles. It can aid in hunting, fishing, gambling, collecting debt and in initiating legal action against someone else.

Because the Harm Door can produce such misfortunes, it can also help a person exact revenge upon his or her enemies. One must only make use of the Harm Door for this purpose when absolutely necessary. This is because it can produce unexpected collateral damage and it does not have any moral implications when bringing someone else misfortune.

Weaknesses

The Harm Doors effects are almost always unwelcome. It can hinder one’s attempts to start or maintain his or her business. It is unsuitable for marriage, travel and can derail one’s renovation plans or attempt to move houses

Qi Men – The Rest Door

The Rest Door is an auspicious Door overall, associated with happy activities and warm, nurturing relationships. It governs recreation and leisure and its effects are relaxing and pleasant. In addition, the Rest Door is known as the Door of Rebirth, associated with the end of winter and the arrival of spring. Nature rests briefly before life returns in the spring, which is why it is known as the Rest Door.

Natal Position: Original position is the Kan Palace. It is the most Yin of all the Doors

Representation: In the Kan Palace where it originates represents youth and rejuvenation.

Strengths
The Rest Door is a peace-making and peacekeeping Door. It encourages inner peace, first and foremost. With a calm mind, one can think clearly. Thus, the Rest Door does a lot more than simply help people unwind – it helps one solve problems and innovate, too. It is extremely auspicious for learning, research and academic activities, in part because it aids communication and stimulates discussion.

The Rest Door can bring people together and work towards the greater good. The army can benefit from the Rest Door because it boosts patriotic feelings, aiding their recruitment efforts. It can help one in legal battles and bring an end to conflicts.

Event planners can count on the Rest Door to ensure that gatherings, recitals or galas, proceed without a hitch. On a person level, it can help ensure a smooth progression from a change in one’s circumstances. It can also aid in marriage, renovation and moving houses, among other things.


Weaknesses
Because the Rest Door’s effects are so agreeable, it is beneficial in most situations. No Door is all-powerful, however, and this Door is no exception.
Although the Rest Door is associated with conflict resolution, it has little effect on legal and civil proceedings. Jealous lovers or nosey people will gain little from the Rest Door, as it helps protect people’s privacy. It is more difficult than normal to conduct espionage when the Rest Door is present.

Qi Men – The Life Door

The Life Door symbolises opportunity and growth – in a person’s personal and professional life. The Life Door can help bring about improvements to a person’s quality of life and allow him to progress in his career. It is associated with abundance and prosperity, and is considered the most auspicious Door.

The Heavens open at Zi 子, the Earth breaks at Chou 丑, and Man is born at Yin 寅. At the precise moment when the three Yang co-exist in blissful harmony, the Life Door emerges. It allows life to burst into being, revealing its full splendour and beauty in the process.

Natal Position: Full of grandeur, splendour and bounty, the original palace located at Gen Palace, it represent a gradual increase of Yang energy as life revives following the barren winter months.

Representation: Located in the Gen Palace represents the power of mountains and the boundless energy of young men as they explore the world.

Strengths
As the most auspicious of all the 8 Doors, the Life Door is beneficial in a wide variety of situations.
It can help in matters of business and finance, providing a boost to trade and commerce. It can also help the unemployed gain employment or propel people towards their career objectives. It may also aid people who seek fame and recognition for their work, bringing their talents to a wider audience. In academia and research, the Life Door can help expedite the process of discovery and enable people to make the breakthroughs that they seek for.

In personal life, the Life Door can help ensure that marriages are harmonious.
The Life Door may also help couples who are trying to conceive. It is also auspicious for travel and migration as well as renovation.

The Life Door is associated with vitality. It protects one’s good health and prolonged exposure to the Life Door can boost longevity. If one is ill, the Life Door can help them find appropriate treatment and further boost its efficacy. Religious people may report that the Life Door helps them gain enlightenment and spiritual insight. Finally, the Life Door may help those who work in agriculture or food production, as it is known to increase yields.


Weaknesses
The positive abilities of the Life Door, is so great that almost any activity will benefit under its influence. However, the only situation in which one may not benefit from the Life Door is when planning a funeral. The other activity that will fare poorly with the Life Door is burial.

Qi Men – The Open Door

The Open Door represents fresh starts, new beginnings and renewal. Overall, it is a very auspicious Door for anyone who is about to embark on a new venture or enter a new chapter in life. The Open Door is particularly helpful in the opening of a new business and expanding business operations. Open door is all about career matters. As most people can think of something they are about to begin working on, its effects are beneficial to many. Should the Open Door be fortunate enough to meet with one of the 3 Nobles (Yi 乙, Bing 丙 and Ding 丁), its positive qualities will be amplified.

Natal Position: Qian Palace in the NorthWest(Yang Positive). In the branch of Hai亥 where Ren壬 and Jia甲reside. And as we know Jia甲 is the leader of the Heavenly stem and water is the leader of 5 elements

Representative: Great Leader and fatherly figure

Strengths
As mentioned earlier, the Open Door is suitable for new ventures and new beginnings. Entrepreneurs, investors and newlyweds, are among those who may appreciate its effects. It may be wise to schedule a launch or opening ceremony to coincide with the Open Door’s presence to benefit from its auspicious effects. Additionally, it can help ensure that construction and renovation goes according to plan.
The Open Door may be helpful for travellers, as it ensures that they will arrive at their destination safe and sound without delay.
The Open Door has a subtle beneficial effect on learning as well – it can help a person improve the speed and accuracy in accumulating new information. Individuals in the education industry, tutors and teachers, for example, may wish to schedule challenging topics or courses to coincide with its occurrence for maximum impact.

Weaknesses
The Open Door is an auspicious Door in almost all contexts but it is not helpful for civil matters.
If one is trying to obtain private or secret information about someone else or perhaps to follow up on a suspicion of betrayal, then this Door will favour the suspect’s privacy and hamper attempts to intrude upon it. The Door is therefore unhelpful for the person who is investigating but helpful for the person who is being spied upon.

Qi Men Dun Jia Doors

Doors play an important part in Qi Men Dun Jia. The 8 Doors found in Qi Men are associated with a wide range of possibilities and their presence can be interpreted in many ways.
The 10 Deities, 9 Stars and 10 Stems of Qi Men have enigmatic names. The 8 Doors, by contrast, are named somewhat intuitively. The Open Door, for example, is associated with progress, opportunity and new beginning; the Death Door is associated with death, stagnation and inactivity; and so on.
It is easy to fall into the trap of making superficial analysis and interpretation of the 8 Doors. One must be willing to look further than their names, and consider what the 8 Doors mean in relation to the other components of Qi Men. Depending on the nature of the reading, they could represent personal characteristics or physical objects. All is not always as it appears, especially in Destiny Analysis. Like the 10 Deities, the 8 Doors can produce surprising effects in a Destiny reading.

In Qi Men Dun Jia, the 8 Doors are:
1. Open Door
2. Rest Door
3. Life Door
4. Scenery Door
5. Delusion Door
6. Death Door
7. Fear Door
8. Harm Door

The 8 Doors are spread across the 9 different Palaces in a Qi Men Chart. The 8 Doors are found in a Qi Men Chart on the Door Plate are thought to represent the human conditions and circumstances associated with the Palace in which they appear. For this reason, the Door Plate is also known as the Man Plate or the Earth Realm. This Plate governs human action and strategy on top of the individuals involved in any given activity.
The 8 Doors take their number from the eight possible directions of travel in the physical world. As one chooses a direction in life, one also symbolically walks through one of the 8 Doors.
Like the other components of a Qi Men Chart, the 8 Doors can each be classified as either auspicious or inauspicious – depending on the context. The Open, Rest and Life Doors are usually considered auspicious, while the Delusion and Scenery Doors are neutral, and the Harm, Death and Fear Doors are usually inauspicious.

Generally, anyone would be correct in one’s interpretation about the auspiciousness or inauspiciousness of a Door. It is practical to make assumptions about the Doors for quick readings. With that said, the Doors are subject to the effects of Stars, Deities and the Structures they participate in. Their effects are dependent on their circumstances: unusual circumstances can make an auspicious Door produce inauspicious effects and vice versa.

Let’s briefly consider some examples.

The Life Door is an auspicious Door like the Open Door, but if one’s reading concerns a missing person, then the Life Door suggests that the person in question would not return home – this indicates an inauspicious outcome.
However, if the Useful God was found in a Palace with negative Doors such as the Door of Death, Fear or Harm, then one might guess that the missing person would ultimately have nowhere to go but to return home which is an indication of an auspicious outcome.

The Open Door is usually seen as the most auspicious Door. However, if the Open Door is found in the same Palace as the White Tiger in a Chart for a pregnant woman, it can be considered inauspicious, since in this context it indicates that the woman, may need a caesarean section. Equally, should the Useful God which is a forecast’s point of reference land on an Open Door in any forecast, one’s private information may be revealed to the enemies.

Above example show that auspicious Doors can have negative consequences, this also apply to inauspicious door. For instance, a Death Door, found appear with the Useful God, may prove to be beneficial if the reading is about hunting or fishing. While a Harm Door can help those related to debt collection.

In summary, context is hugely important in Qi Men and no Door is “good” or “bad”. There are many exceptions that one must not regard the 8 Doors as what the name represented.

I will progressively, deep dive into each door and hope this sharing will help everyone and myself to discover the next layer of QiMen Doors.

The Nine Stars and Health

With the advent of the pandemic, health has become a hot topic among public discussion. More than ever, everyone has become more health-conscious with their decisions. Where health is concerned, everyone is susceptible to different forms of ailment. Based on your personal Star of Destiny, these are some of the health risk factors you might want to consider.

HEAVENLY GRAIN

As the eponymous sign of illness in a health-related forecast, being born under this sign usually denotes poor vitality overall. But with proper care, they can still have good health. Carbs such as rice and wheat are recommended in their diet.

HEAVENLY ASSISTANT

For the Heavenly Assistant, they should be paying more attention to their mental health. It’s easier for them to develop problems such as anxiety and being emotionally overwhelmed. Besides exercise, include activities that are conducive for the mind such as meditation as well.

HEAVENLY HEART

The Heavenly Heart should take extra care of their head. To put it simply, they should include more brain food in what they eat. For example, fatty fish, nuts and green tea. Mental exercises to keep the mind focus can also go a long way.

HEAVENLY AMBASSADOR

Ailments that usually affect the Heavenly Ambassador are related to chronic pain in the joints and back. More often than not, the cause of this issue is overstressing these parts of the body. Exercising and physical activities are good but be sure not to push it beyond your limitations.

HEAVENLY GRASS

Those with this Heavenly Star like to seek gratification. This includes their diet and overindulgence can lead to a host of problems such as obesity and weight gain. If you’re a Heavenly Grass, be mindful of what you eat.

HEAVENLY DESTRUCTOR

In general, Heavenly Destructors don’t pay much regard to their personal health. Thus, they often push themselves to the point where they get burnt out. This can easily be remedied by proper resting from time to time as well as eating more fruits.

HEAVENLY BIRD

Those born under the Heavenly Bird sign are usually blessed with longevity. But, this doesn’t mean they won’t be exempted from health issues. They should pay attention to the well-being of their stomach, sleep and lower back.

HEAVENLY PILLAR

The parts of the body that the Heavenly Pillar should be mindful of are the mouth, throat and lungs. Hygiene in these areas is imperative as it may be prone to be infected. Regular check-ups is also recommended just to cover your bases.

HEAVENLY HERO

Those born under the sign of Heavenly Hero may encounter issues relating to the eyes, blood or heart. Take note of your blood pressure level, especially. Be on the lookout for heart-healthy food the next time you plan your meals.

Fu Yin(伏吟) Chart in QiMen

Fu Yin(伏吟)

Fu Yin chart is when stem are the same or double. A Pure Fu Yin is when the Star and Door are back in their original position. So what does it mean in destiny reading as compare to forecasting vs strategic execution?

Fu Yin in forecasting generally indicates that progress will be slow and that supported actions will be limited, these affects will still, however, be couched within the reading dictated by the stems. Among the Ten Stems, there are Three Nobles and Six Crescents. The Nobles of Yi , Bing , and Ding 丁 as well as the stem of Wu 戊 are thought to be auspicious and, as such, when a Fu Yin formation falls on one of these stems, the impact will be to slow the progress of otherwise positive events. 

When Fu Yin falls on one of the remaining stems, the effect may be to cause complete stagnation or, indeed, to slow the development of more negative events. The final judgment over the specific impact of Fu Yin will need, however, to take into consideration the overall combinations of the Stars, Doors and Deities in that particular Palace, as well as the relationships between the Five Elements and the other Palaces.

While in Destiny Reading, it is actually denote as Pure Energy that we like to see. We can see that what you appear within inside and outside is identical, your thoughts and actions are align. People will not have second thought about you as you are a straightforward person. You can access anything in your chart in a stronger and easy way.

In Strategic Execution, is is consider as a good formation as the energy will be the purest where you can perform meditation or any Qi enhancement activities of sort. At this time, it is suitable for your energy realignments and gain a whole lot of clarity.

Hope that my sharing and understanding of Fu Yin Chart can help those who still learning QiMen.

Important Things When Moving In New House

One of most common fengshui topics is the set of Chinese rituals/customs for the move-in ceremony that officially marks the start of living in your new home. 

Find a suitable auspicious day and time according to Tong Shu/Sheng (The Chinese Almanac); the selection of auspicious date should take into consideration the birth data of the family members, but priority is given to the house-owner. Contact SH Astrology if you need help on Date Selection.

For a quick and easy guide, I have shared some fengshui to-dos so you know just what to do when THE day finally comes.

1. Put your bowling skills to the test. Upon entering your home, roll one pineapple in the house while saying auspicious phrases. Continue to roll the pineapple around the home while saying these auspicious phrases.

2. When entering the home, all family members should carry something auspicious(and no one should enter empty handed) .

Bring the 5 kitchen necessities (cooking oil, salt, sauce, vinegar, rice) – and according to some Chinese customs, bring a brush and broom, bucket filled with water, pairs of chopsticks or fork and spoon. (Some Chinese even bring a charcoal cooker with burned charcoal from the elders/parents’ house to symbolize the “passing on” of a generation, to represent a “burning success”. 

Fresh fruits such as oranges (which symbolise prosperity), pomegranates (which symbolise opportunities), peaches (which symbolise good health) and apples (which symbolise safety) are good choices which mark a sweet start to your new life.

3. Open all the doors and windows of your home. Besides welcoming fresh air and sunlight into the home, this practice signifies that the Qi energies in your house are being renewed and cleansed.

4. Proclaim the functionality of your home by turning on all the water and gas pipes and electrical appliances (leaving them on for about 3 minutes will do). We think that this is also a great way to check that everything is working well within your home!

5. Channel that inner campfire spirit. Light up your stove and set a kettle on it to boil. This symbolises that your home will be filled with warmth and that you will have a bright career.

6. To ‘bless’ every inch of your home, mix some green beans with uncooked rice, sea salt and Tie Guan Yin tea leaves and scatter these all around the home. This is believed to chase away all evils while planting the seed of wealth within the home.

7. Usher in the good fortune by putting sweets on all tables and desks within the home and by placing red packets filled with new notes at places where you intend to keep your money (e.g. inside the safe, desk drawers).

8. What better way to conclude these moving-in rituals than by bonding with family over a delicious home-cooked meal. The water that has been boiled earlier can also be used for brewing a pot of Chinese tea. Besides enjoying the food, such a practice symbolises the sharing of wealth among all members of the family.

With all these done, you can now go forth and beckon in harmony and prosperity within your home.
