The Yin and Yang
This notion of polarity is omnipresent: everything is Yin or Yang. Everything
must be interpreted according to the polarity of the year of birth, the polarity
of each energy, the polarity of the boxes containing them...
For instance, to be born a Yang year and, at the same time, have Destiny in a
Yang box is favorable (to be born a Yin year and, at the same time, have Destiny
in a Yin box is similarly favorable).
The opposite case may underline some uneasiness in life, or some difficulties to
fulfill oneself. This can be connected, in western astrology, to a bad aspect of
Saturn with one of the facets of the Ego, or to an Ego rejected to the
Descendant, or to a quartered Ego...
Most main stars are polarized (Yin Stars or
Yang Stars), and to find the main
stars in boxes showing the same polarity as them is of course highly beneficial.
The ideal being the maximum consistency, like for instance King of the Stars
(Yang) in a Destiny in Rat box (Yang) for someone born in 1998 (Yang).
Some stars are also "oriented": they are linked to the North or South
Finally, stars usually belong to one element.
The 5 Elements
They are: Wood, Water, Fire, Metal and Earth.
The interpretation must continually take into account the element of the year of
birth, the element of each energy, the element of the boxes containing them...
Elements generate one another, and also come up against each other:
Generation Cycle: Earth > Metal > Water > Wood > Fire > Earth
secretes canalizes grows feeds generates ashes
Control Cycle: Earth > Water > Fire > Metal > Wood > Earth
drinks puts out melts cuts wears out
All the time, these elements feed, or wear out the energy of the others.
Here is a general table of the combinations, where Elt represents the element of
the studied object (Destiny, Second World, Decade, Year, Box, Energy...). It can
be found at the junction of a line and a column.
Birth Fire Earth Metal Water Wood
Excellent if Elt is: WOOD FIRE EARTH METAL WATER
(Elt generates the natal element)
Good if: FIRE EARTH METAL WATER WOOD
(Elt is the same as. . .)
Neutral if: EARTH METAL WATER WOOD FIRE
(Elt is generated by the Natal element)
Bad if: METAL WATER WOOD FIRE EARTH
(Elt is controlled by the Natal element)
Execrable: WATER WOOD FIRE EARTH METAL
(Elt controls the Natal element)
