The Earthly Branches can also form Directional Combinations, as the twelve Earthly Branches correspond to specific directions: Zi is in the North, Wu is in the South, Mao is in the East, and You is in the West. Together, Zi, Wu, Mao, and You are known as the Four Cardinal Directions. The twelve Earthly Branches are arranged into four directions as follows:

  • Hai, Zi, Chou in the North form a Water directional combination.
  • Yin, Mao, Chen in the East form a Wood directional combination.
  • Si, Wu, Wei in the South form a Fire directional combination.
  • Shen, You, Xu in the West form a Metal directional combination.

The rules for forming Directional Combinations are as follows:

  1. A Directional Combination requires the presence of all three Branches. Missing any one of them invalidates the combination. The Branches need not be in sequential order and may be interspaced.
  2. For a Directional Combination to transform, it must meet specific conditions. The transformation is not automatic but requires the presence of corresponding Heavenly Stems:
    • For Hai, Zi, Chou to form a Water combination, Ren or Gui must appear in the Heavenly Stems, enabling Water to manifest.
    • For Si, Wu, Wei to form a Fire combination, Bing or Ding must appear in the Heavenly Stems, enabling Fire to manifest.
    • For Yin, Mao, Chen to form a Wood combination, Jia or Yi must appear in the Heavenly Stems, enabling Wood to manifest.
    • For Shen, You, Xu to form a Metal combination, Geng or Xin must appear in the Heavenly Stems, enabling Metal to manifest.
  3. The transforming element of the combination must not be directly countered by the Branch of the Month. For example, if Yin, Mao, Chen form a Wood combination but the Month Branch is You (Metal), which overcomes Wood, the combination cannot transform due to the direct counteraction.
