We asked a Fengshui master about using Zi Wei Dou Shu (Chinese Astrology) to help you analyse your marriage. Also commonly called pi ming, Zi Wei Dou Shu is one of the most respected methods for forecasting your future based on the exact time of your birth. Kenny Toh, Fengshui master explains how it all works.
As a Feng Shui Master, one of the most common questions that I am asked is if I can analyse a persons current or future marriage. By looking at Zi Wei Dou Shu, one can broadly access the potential of a marriage.
The basics of Zi Wei Dou Shu
In Zi Wei Dou Shu (ZWDS), there are 12 palaces (Gong) governing the state of affairs of an individual’s life. They are the
- Life Palace,
- Siblings’ Palace,
- Spouse’s Palace,
- Children’s Palace,
- Wealth Palace,
- Health Palace,
- Travel Palace,
- Friends’ Palace,
- Career Palace,
- Estate Palace,
- Blessings Palace and
- Parents’ Palace.
On top of these 12 Palaces, there are 108 stars that can fall into one of these palaces and we can get a good assessment of the state of affairs of each palace by looking at the stars in each palace and the elemental nature of each palace.
The elemental nature of each palace is depicted by the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals of Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
As our subject of interest is marriage, the palace of interest will be the Spouse’s Palace. The first step is to look at which of the 12 Earthly Branches the Spouse Palace lands on.
Of the 12 Earthly Branches, we can group them into the 4 Horses (Tiger, Monkey, Snake and Pig), 4 Storage (Dragon, Dog, Ox and Goat) and 4 Cardinals (Rat, Horse, Rabbit and Rooster).
If the Spouse Palace falls into the ground of one of the 4 Horses, it is likely to be unstable as Horses represents movements.
If the Spouse Palace is located in one of the ground of the 4 Storage, relationship will be less overt or more secretive as the name “Storage” lends suggestion to.
As for situation when Spouse Palace falls onto the ground of the 4 Cardinals, it will look appealing as cardinals are also known for high romance and attractiveness in Chinese Metaphysics.
However, whether the Spousal relationship is good remains inconclusive as if the spouse is too attractive, it may also bring about negative attraction from other members of the opposite sex.
