1.甲子 乙丑 海中金
· Jia Zi, Yi Chou
· Gold in the Sea
Jia Zi, Yi Chou........................Gold in the Sea
Yin Yang Qi still hidden. Only hear of the name can’t see the shape yet. Like still in the womb of the mother.
Zi as water, can also be considered a lake, or as the prosperous state of water,
and metal is dead qi at zi, and in grave at chou,
water prosperous and metal is dead or in tomb,
this is known as metal in the sea, or the qi is being concealed, in the extreme and thus being submerged.
Zi, is water in the five elements, is the water of the lake, and where water is at a prosperous state.
in the five elements, metal is dead at zi and in tomb at chou
when water is prospering, metal is dead or in tomb, like the metal in the sea, thus this is known as metal in the sea.
Another method of saying: Jia Yi and Zi Chou are the beginning stages of yin and yang, thus if we trace back to the extreme point, it will sink and be concealed just like metal in the middle of the sea.
From SMTH: Those with metal in the sea is like treasure hidden in the dragon palace, with hidden pearl and dragon treasure, to emerge even though it is fake in void or clash,
to be utilized there is no need to borrow fire, thus Dong Fang Su name this as a clam, which is reasonable.
with Jia Zi seeing Gui Hai is a structure of hidden pearl among the vast ocean, where there is no use for fire,
when meeting void, there is pearl reflecting the moon structure, which is when Jia Zi meets Ji Wei, is wanting to combine and transform thus mutually beneficial.
The cover of ocean and metal is without form, without void or clash it is unable to appear, while Yi Chou metal tomb, unless it is strong fire, cannot be casted (metal).
If Jia Zi meeting Wu Yin, Geng Wu, is earth giving birth to metal
Yi Chou meeting Bing Yin , Ding Mao is fire controlling metal.
Also is heavenly stem with San Qi, such is a noble structure, will always be noble.
‘Metal in the sea’ is like treasure hidden in the dragon palace and can be compared to a pearl hidden within an oyster. For the metal to appear, it needs to rely on clash and void. For it to become a useful instrument, it need fire, thus it is for this reason that Dong Fang Su name this as a clam.
“Wondrous Selection” has the structure of pearl hidden among the vast ocean, which is when Jia Zi meets with Gui Hai (ocean water). Such a structure does not require fire.
In the “Clam illuminated by the moon” structure, it meets with void. This is when Jia Zi is together with Ji Wei (heavenly fire). There is desire to combine and transform, thus it is a noble structure.
When covered by the ocean, metal is without form, unless there is void or clash then it will appear. Yi Chou as storage of metal, cannot be formed into instruments unless there is strong fire.
Like Jia Zi meeting Wu Yin (fortress earth), Geng Wu represent earth producing metal, Yi Chou meeting Bing Yin, Ding Mao (furnace fire) represent fire controlling metal.
With proper San Qi QuiRen in the HS, in all cases is a noble chart.
Old saying Jia Zi, Ji Chou loves to meet ‘furnace fire’ (Bing Yin, Ding Mao).
Bing Yin (furnace fire) is prosperous fire, does not like assistance from wood.
Ding Mao (furnace fire) as defeated fire, need wood to help.
‘Fire from the lamp’, ‘on the mountain slope’ and ‘on the mountain top’, is of mild nature and not able to forge metal, need to have the help of wood.
‘Heavenly fire’ cannot control metal, need to rely on normal fire, together with assistance from water, without clash/damage is considered good.
‘Lightning fire’ in place to control, the person will be muddle-headed, if meeting in LP will be very inauspicious.
Meeting wood will not be lucky, this metal can’t be forged into useful instruments and cannot be used to control other element.
If fire is present in the month and day, also with wood in the time, this can be considered as wealth and is thus auspicious.
‘Spring water’, ‘condense water’, ‘great stream’, ‘celestial river’, for these 4 water, without fire, extremely not suitable to meet.
In the absence of fire, it is not suitable to meet ‘Spring water’, ‘condensed water’, ‘great stream’, ‘Celestial River’.
‘Ocean water’ also not suitable.
However, according to “Wonderous selection”, this is considered a noble chart.
Accordingly, Jia Zi together with Gui Hai (ocean water), is meeting growth stage towards Qian, why not?
‘Roadside earth’, ‘Earth on the house’, ‘City wall earth’, ‘Roadway earth’, in the day and time pillar, year pillar nayin without fire to control, DM wii be poor and die middleage.
When meeting the other earth nayin, the situation will be different. Geng Wu Xin Wei, Wu Yin Ji Mao, the luck will still be alright.
Like Jia Zi meet Geng Wu, Kan Li is assisting each other.
Meeting Xin Wei, officer star carrying Gui (fortune).
Yi Chou meeting Geng Wu as exchanging between officer and fortune.
Jia Zi meet Wu Yin, it is being born in repose stage. When meeting Ji Mao, heavenly stem is combined and transformed.
Yi Chou meet Wu Yin, is also getting birth at repose stage, when meeting Ji Mao return to prospect star and bringing wealth.
Other earth when it is year prospect, horse or nobleman then it is allowed.
Earth from the sand/grave causes metal to be buried, it is thus not suitable to meet, with fire also considered inauspicious.
Meeting metal in the pillar, ‘metal found in sand’, ‘white wax gold’ which has not been forged, ‘gold in the sea’ also not yet forged, not beneficial for both, not suitable without fire.
‘Sword edge’, ornament has already been forged, meeting metal would provide assistance.
According to “Wondrous Selections”, transformation god leaving the body, implies auspiciousness.
‘Gold foil’ will also be good.
Like Jia Zi meeting Jia Zi, Yi Chou meeting Yi Chou, both the same species and mutually supporting.
In the pillar prefers to meet one Yin, meeting Wu Yin as the jade from the Kun mountain is considered precious.
Jia Zi meet Yi Chou, like HS and EB joined as a string of pearl; must have fire to forge.
This is the metal spirit structure of zi ping.
Must have Jia and Geng to be considered noble.
Best to have lots of Wu and Ji earth. Without also ok.
