I’ll post my friends boy later on, but like all my previous case, I like to focus on a famous personality. I won’t reveal the name, just yet, but it’ll be good way to make my case.
This person is a ding fire person, born in Hai (Pig), so naturally not strong as not born in season. His daymaster is however supported by resource (unfortunately not the right kind) and the Hai makes the resource not very useful as wet wood doesn’t burn well. I don’t have the time of birth so, let’s say there’s so much you can read from this chart only. He does present his output (EG) in the year stem, but it’s not supported and he has a direct officer structure.
From the description, you can say this person is quite sentimental, courteous, and conservative in characteristic. Extremely patient and contemplate his moves patiently. His self is not strong and is further aggravated by the fact his resource or support is not good. This would be his source of frustration in the future as his ideas do not come to full fruition. Another way to look at all this Indirect Resources is to understand the representation of Yi Wood as an IR. These could be advisors that use other people to get to their own personal goals! The ding fire is surrounded by them! The bazi structure tells us of a person of power, authority, righteousness etc.
Where’s the weak link? (not missing link, because it’s important that the element is still present for it to be effective). My assessment is in the eating god/hurting officer element. As we do know that there’s wealth associated to the person, probably though the children, I will assume that the wealth elements probably would be located in the hour pillar.
The flow of things moves these ways – Resource supports self. Self produces Output. Output generates Wealth. Wealth brings about Power and Authority.
This person will realize his power and authority in his 35 (starting 1974) and 65 (starting 2004) luck pillars. These are his OUTPUT luck pillars (lasting for 10 years each). Dry resource is important – which means dry wood (dead chopped (Geng metal should be present) wood), and water aggravate the situation further – such as the year of the Rat, where the base chi is Water. There would be plenty of stress in water years! But from ages of 35 through 64, he would go through the season of summer and it would be relatively smooth sailing for him. He will see his peak during his 65 luck pillars.
So, if he was my son, I would focus on a few key areas of development – resource (knowledge and foundation) and output (realizable outcomes).
