The sequence of Bazi fortune telling involves establishing the Four Pillars, plotting the Major Cycles, and pairing with the Ten Gods. Understanding the Yin and Yang and the Five Elements of the Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches, as well as the Hidden Stems within the Earthly Branches, is essential for pairing with the Ten Gods.

For example, if Jia represents Yang Wood, then its Yin and Yang aspect is Yang, and its element is Wood. The other Heavenly Stems follow similarly, listed as follows:

The Five Elements and Yin-Yang of the Heavenly Stems: Jia: Yang Wood, Yi: Yin Wood, Bing: Yang Fire, Ding: Yin Fire, Wu: Yang Earth, Ji: Yin Earth, Geng: Yang Metal, Xin: Yin Metal, Ren: Yang Water, Gui: Yin Water.

The Yin-Yang and Five Elements of the Earthly Branches are determined by the Hidden Stems they contain. Heavenly Stems are pure, while Earthly Branches are mixed because they contain Heavenly Stems. Humanity is born from the Earth, so the Hidden Stems within the Earthly Branches are also referred to as “the Human Element within the Branches.”

The Human Element within the Branches:

  • Zi contains Gui, Chou contains Ji, Gui, and Xin, Yin contains Jia, Bing, and Wu, Mao contains Yi, Chen contains Wu, Yi, and Gui, Si contains Bing, Wu, and Geng, Wu contains Ding and Ji, Wei contains Ji, Ding, and Yi, Shen contains Geng, Ren, and Wu, You solely contains Xin, Xu contains Wu, Xin, and Ding, Hai contains Ren and Jia.

The mnemonic for the Hidden Stems within the Branches goes as follows: Zi harbors Gui, Chou has Ji, Gui, and Xin, Yin is home to Jia, Bing, and Wu, within Mao lies Yi, Chen hosts Wu, Yi, and Gui, Si is filled with Bing, Wu, and Geng, Wu shelters Ding and Ji, inside Wei are Ji, Ding, and Yi, Shen accommodates Geng, Ren, and Wu, You exclusively encases Xin, Xu houses Wu, Xin, and Ding, Hai encompasses Ren and Jia.

There are various theories about the Yin and Yang of the Earthly Branches, such as the odd-even theory, the concept of Yin within Yang and Yang within Yin, and determining Yin and Yang based on the dominant Qi within the Human Element, among others. Nowadays, the odd-even theory is widely accepted:

Zi, Yin, Chen, Wu, Shen, and Xu are considered Yang,

Chou, Mao, Si, Wei, You, and Hai are Yin.

It’s sufficient to be aware of this theory, as in Bazi applications, the Earthly Branches primarily utilize the Human Element they contain.

The Five Elements of the twelve Earthly Branches are represented by the elements of the Hidden Stems they contain. For Branches containing multiple elements, the dominant element determines the Branch’s element.

Therefore, Zi and Hai are Water; Si and Wu are Fire; Yin and Mao are Wood; Shen and You are Metal; Chen, Xu, Chou, and Wei are Earth.

Thus, Zi can also be referred to as Zi Water, and Shen as Shen Metal, and so forth.

These details are essential to memorize; there are no shortcuts. Without familiarity with these concepts, effectively using Bazi for fortune telling is impossible.

With these principles mastered, along with the generating and overcoming cycles of the Five Elements, one is ready to learn about the Ten Gods.
