I know, I’m going on about Bazi (Four Pillars of Destiny) like a broken radio. But this time, really, you might be able to learn something. How about finding that awesome Mr. Right you’re always dreaming about? All right then. How about Bazi and Romance? Better yet, how about Sakura and the Princeton brothers. That’s if you’re a fan of them and the books. Which brother is her real husband? Gorgeously hot Sebastian with his pale blond hair and azure blue eyes or broodingly handsome Darcy with his jet black hair and mauve-gray eyes?
Romance and relationship is just one of the many facets of life we human beings are always fascinated about. More so for some, and indeed for those some, they go the extra mile and dig deep in order to get a peek at what their romantic future might hold.
Well, my dear readers, if you are indeed one of those some, then allow me to inform you that you can do so with bazi. Okay, speaking the truth here. I am indeed one of those some. Crazy you might say? Maybe. But I will tell you this and that is the consultation was eye opening for me. I now understand myself better. My flaws were being pointed out to me bluntly – in big, bold letters in my mind, of course. Yes, I have flaws. Many of them, in fact, that I am ashamed of myself. But to improve oneself, one needs to know one’s flaws, no? Analyzing one’s bazi chart is like going to a doctor to find out what’s wrong with you. But instead of your health you are diagnosing, it’s your life. Hence, Bazi Analysis is the diagnosis of your life whilst using Feng Shui to help improve what is wrong is the prescription. I know it only accounts for 33% of the life luck, but heck, 33% is better than a big, fat zero, right?
A while ago, a friend pointed out to me why I am so fascinated about this stuff and why I needed to pay someone to simply tell me what’s wrong with my life. First off, I came across bazi merely by chance a long time ago by picking up a book in the Feng Shui section. Yes, I was interested in Feng Shui first. And yes, I know quite a bit about Feng Shui. As a side note, Feng Shui is NOT the art of object placement to make your life better. It’s total bullshit! You simply can’t place a figurine in certain sectors of your house and voila, your life is better! That’s total garbage. Okay, I’m not going to rant about it here now. Though I might in the future.
Back to bazi then. Like a friend said, why pay someone to tell you your life sucks? Being me, I like to get the whole picture and dig deep. My goal? I want to be a successful person. To get there, I need to understand myself and know roughly what I need to do and what will happen. Another word, I want a guarantee. The friend told me why bother? If you know your future, then it takes the fun out of living. I guess the friend is right in a way. But see? I am a very conservative type of person. I don’t like to live dangerously. Thanks to my Direct Officer star. My analogy is – would you drive to an unknown destination without at least having a roughly drawn map of the road in your mind? Nope. Today there are GPS and google map for you to use if you’re going to be travelling some place you’ve never been to before. That’s how I see life. I need to know at least a little bit of what is likely to happen. You know, just to prepare myself.
All right. That’s enough about Bazi and my view of it. Let’s talk about romance and bazi, and of course, Sakura and the Princeton brothers and how one uses bazi to determine one’s other half. Please note that I am no expert in this field of bazi, and merely muse about the subject because it’s fun. Please also note that in life there is no such thing as that one other half. Rather, there are a few people who fits the criteria of that other half and it is up to you and your action to make things happen. Phew! I think I phrased that right.
Sakura and the Princeton Brothers: Which brother is her true other half?
If you haven’t already read Falling for Sakura: A Secret Kiss, then I have no idea where you’ve been. The book is completely free to download from all the major online book stores such as Amazon, iBooks, B&N, Google, Kobo, and Smashwords. If you don’t want to download from these stores, I’ve posted it up to read for free on Wattpad. It has over 2 million reads and getting to 3 million soon. Yup. Not exaggerating. In fact, I tend to understate. I usually do and I have no idea why. Anyway, go download the damn book and read it to understand what the hell I’m ranting about.
We all know Sakura Princeton/Tanaka is in love with two very hot brothers, Sebastian and Darcy. Though to be honest, I have never intended for the book to turn out this way. But heck, it did and I can’t change that now. I just have to keep going. Anyway, so why am I brining Sakura and her love triangle up with the subject of bazi? That’s because via bazi you can find out who your true spouse/husband star is and when you’ll meet him. That’s in the real world, and I’m just using Sakura and her made up bazi chart to show you how it’s done.
Before I begin, I need to show you what a real bazi chart looks like. Below is an example. If you want to see what yours looks like, you can just google by using the key words “Plot Bazi Chart” etc. I use Joey Yap’s tool. Then of course you need to plot in your date of birth. Hence, year, month, day, and of course, time. You need all four to have a complete chart.
Freaked out yet? Yes, it’s a lot. And yes, it’s confusing. Let’s not go there yet. I’ll just show you the basic.
The Spouse Star
In bazi, the true husband star for a female is the Direct Officer (DO) star. We are talking about a female chart here because Sakura is a female. For a male, the true wife star is the Direct Wealth (DW) star. If a bazi chart doesn’t have DO, then the 7 Killing (7K) is taken as the husband star. Note also that 7K is generally considered as the boyfriend star. For a male, if there is no DW star, then the Indirect Wealth or IW (generally considered as the girlfriend star) is taken as the wife star.
Sakura’s True Husband Star
So who is Sakura’s true husband star? Sebastian or Darcy? Below is her made up chart designed by me. Hehe.
Let’s go over the chart. In the Day Pillar where it says Sakura DM, this is Sakura’s Day Master. This represents her and who she is in elemental term and how she presents herself to the world. Here I chose the Xin Metal (jewelry and small metal) as her DM as an example, although she could be any one of the ten day masters such as Jia Wood (big woods), Yi Wood (flowers and little plants), Bing Fire (fire of the sun), Ding Fire (fire of candle light), Jia Earth (mountains), Ji Earth (soft earth), Ren Water (sea water), Gui Water (rain water), or Geng Metal (swords and large metal).
Below the DM where it says Spouse Palace is, as stated, the husband palace. It is a very important and untouchable palace out of all of the palaces. By untouchable I mean it cannot be clash, harm, punish, destroy or combine in any way, shape or form. If any of the afore-mentioned touches this palace, you can kiss a wonderful, romantic relationship goodbye. Of course in real life, there is no such things as a wonderful and lasting romantic relationship. Your ten years luck pillars and annual pillars change. The cycle of these interacts with your personal chart, making it super awesome, good, okay, or simply a horrible year for you depending on the composition of your chart.
For a woman to have a good romantic relationship, she needs to have the DO star within the spouse palace. Please don’t panic if you don’t see it straight of in your spouse palace. You need to look in the hidden stem which is shown below the spouse palace. Hidden stem is actually within the earthly branch. It’s just that the stars are hidden. If you still don’t have the DO star in the hidden stem, please remain calm. As long as you have a favorable element to the DM within the spouse palace, all is well in the relationship front. Just as long also that this palace is not clashed, harmed, punished or combined in anyway as mentioned before.
Next, the DO star needs to be a favorable element to the DM. In Sakura’s case, because she is a Xin Metal DM, she needs the DO star, the Bing Fire element, to be favorable to her DM. In this case, Sakura DM has to be strong because a strong DM favors the Influence Stars (DO and 7K), Wealth Stars (DW and IW), and Output Stars (EG and HO). She does not like Resource Stars (DR and IR) and Friend/Self Stars (Friend and RW).
Remember the ultimate goal for the chart is balance. You don’t any one element to be too strong. That’s why a strong DM needs to be controlled by the Influence stars (DO and/or 7K), produce Output Stars (EG/HO) and controls another element which means Wealth (DW and IW). This is all in order to reduce the strength of the DM. If the DM is weak then the DM needs resource (DR and IR) and friends/self-element to help strengthen it.
According to her Chart
So which is for real? Note that in Sakura’s chart, there are two influence stars, DO and/or 7K flanking on either side of her DM in the heavenly stem? Note: The top column is called the heavenly stem and the bottom is called the earthly branch. Heavenly stem is weak and doesn’t whole as much weight as the earthly branch. This means that to the outside and on the surface, Sakura appears to have two DO/husband stars. Hence, translate to life, this means she has two men to choose from as her love interest. In the hour pillar, I plotted it either as DO or 7K because I wanted to show that either she appears to have two husband stars or that she appears to have one husband star and one boyfriend star. As I’ve mentioned before, the heavenly stem is only an appearance. The stars/elements need to be rooted, meaning appearing in the earthly branch and straight down to the hidden stem to have any real lasting/meaning. In this case, Sakura chart has the DO right in the spouse palace. So she does have a true husband star that is strong and rooted. But really? Do the husband star means Sebastian or Darcy? This depends on Sakura’s decision. But for a more sure thing, one needs to look at both Sebastian’s and Darcy’s chart. If the chart fits, meaning one of the men’s chart is going through a wealth ten years luck pillar or that there is a combination forming a very strong wealth element for him (as mentioned before wealth also represent wife for a man), then you bet it’s him.
Sebastian – 27 years old multibillionaire real estate investor and businessman. You bet he’s going through his wealth 10 years luck pillar.
Darcy – 24 years old multibillionaire game designer and entrepreneur. You bet he’s going through his wealth 10 years luck pillar.
Damn! This is so hard.
When Sakura meets Sebastian and Darcy
In Falling for Sakura Book 1: A Secret Kiss, Sakura meets the Princeton brothers when they return home to St. Joseph Island for their cousin’s wedding. Of course they literally drove into Sakura whilst she’s out taking photos of nature. She’s an artist. More on bazi and her characteristics later. When she meets them again, she’s twenty-three years old. Now let us see how bazi help us decipher this. Below are her natal chart, 10 years luck pillar, and an annual pillar. I take the annual pillar as 2026 because in 2026, it is the year of Bing Wu, which is Bing Fire in the heavenly stem and Wu Horse (Yang Fire) in the earthly branch.
In 2026 when the year of Bing Wu comes around, Sakura will meet her potential husband. Bing is the fire of the sun, Wu Horse is Yang Fire which is also the fire of the sun. The element of fire represents the DO star for Sakura. When this star appears in both her 10 years luck pillar, as it is in the 23 to 33 years cycle, and the annual pillar, as it is in 2026, the husband himself will make an appearance and they will meet. See? Not so hard, right? But of course in reality, whether this meeting will turn into a relationship depends on the person’s action and whether there are clashes, harm, punishment and/or a combination between the pillars. And trust me, character such as Sakura with all her problems such as being an orphan, people being jealous of her and bullying her during her childhood years, and her having so much inner conflict will have some of these within her chart. More on that in later posts.
Of course the appearance of the Husband Star (DO or 7K) in the 10 years luck pillar and the annual pillar is not the only way a woman will meet her husband. Another way is when there is a combination of the elements, either via the formation of the Three Combination or the Directional Combination. In Sakura’s case, this occurs when her chart meets a 10 year luck and annual pillar of Yin Tiger and Xu Dog. Hence, Yin Tiger – Wu Horse – Xu Dog will form a Three Combination Fire Structure that is extremely strong. The same will happen if her chart meets the Si Snake and Wei Goat. Hence, the Si Snake – Wu Horse – Wei Goat form an extremely strong Directional Combination of Summer, which is also the element of fire, a Xin Metal DO/husband star.
Bottom story? If your chart say you will meet your other half, you will met him when the time comes. If it’s not now, why not concentrate on doing something else that your chart says will make you a success? Such as career (output/influence), accumulating wealth (wealth stars), or self-improvement (resource stars)? But then again, bazi is subjective and complex. There is no one star to consider but a combination in any area of life. Take career for example. For your career to be a success, three different stars are taken into consideration; Output, Influence and Wealth. It’s how good and hard you work (output), who your boss is (Influence) and how much money you make (wealth). For a man, well, wealth is not only wealth, but his wife, too. So no wealth? No wife! Or at least it will be very hard for him to find/connect with that special someone. You will notice a trend that when a man starts making money, he’d probably be getting married soon, or at least find his true other half (as mentioned above with Sebastian and Darcy).
Okay. Enough bazi. For now, let’s just enjoy Falling for Sakura, why don’t we? Book 2, A Secret Proposal Part 1 is coming out on the 18th of August, that’s like only a week and a bit away.
