To determine how to have good luck in a given year it is necessary to look at our birth chart and at the year’s chart and see how they interact.
The year of the rooster 2017 starts on February 3, 2017 at 11:49 pm and its birth chart is shown on Picture 1.
Since you need your birth chart to see how it relates to the year’s chart, go to the BaZi Calculator and plot it using the local time at your place of birth.
Your chart reflects who you are. The year chart reflects the opportunities that come your way.
Picture 1 – Year of the Fire Rooster 2017
On any given birth chart the top elements are known as heavenly stems or simply stems, the middle elements are known as earthly branches or simply branches and the bottom elements are known as hidden stems, and are the components of the branches.
In a year’s chart the reference element is the year, in this case the year of the rooster, but in any birth chart the personal element is always the day element, known as the day master. In the case of the year of the rooster the day master is yin metal and in your case it is the stem on your day of birth.
As seen on the year’s chart, there are four metals, two waters, two fires, one wood and one earth (don’t count the branches because their elements are already in the hidden stems). This means that the predominant element is metal so if you have metal in your birth chart you have better chances to have good luck during the year of the rooster 2017. If you don’t have metal in your chart you should partner with someone that has metal in his/her chart in order to improve your luck.
The second most popular element in the year’s chart is water so if you don’t have metal but you have water you also have the possibility to have good luck during the year of the rooster 2017.
Since fire is the third most popular element, having fire in the chart is also favorable during the year of the rooster 2017.
The weak elements in the year’s chart are wood and earth with earth being the weakest. If you have 3 or more earth elements in your chart you will have some challenges during the year of the rooster 2017. How to overcome the challenges? How to have good luck? Concentrate your efforts on the areas of your life that display the good elements, don’t make any major changes and don’t place great expectations on the areas of your life that display the not so good elements.
- The areas of your life in your birth chart are as follows:
- The year pillar represents your social circle, your friends, your network, the industry you work for, the people you know and the people that know you.
- The month pillar represents your career, your job and whatever you do for living.
- The day pillar represents you, your domestic affairs, your thoughts and emotional world. The day branch represents your spouse or significant other.
- The hour pillar represents your creations and achievements, your aspirations and ambition.
The luck pillar represents your current overall experience and impacts all areas of your life (we all go through various luck pillars in our life, each luck pillar lasts approximately 10 years).
If your good elements are in the stems everybody will see you are doing good but it might not be completely true. If your good elements are in the hidden stems you will do good but people won’t see it. If your good elements are in the stems and in the hidden stems everybody will see you are doing good and it will be true.
Following the guidelines above, you can determine your luck in love by looking at the day pillar or your luck at work by looking at the month pillar, to name some. Or you can take action to improve your money luck, for instance, if you have good elements in the hour pillar, create something, if you have good elements in the month pillar, work harder to multiply the benefits because the year’s energy is on your side.
The strength of the elements in the year’s chart not only impacts people, it impacts everything that exists because everything in the universe is associated with an element. Depending on the geographic location in the world the actual strength of the elements changes a little but generally speaking metal matters will be strong and earth matters will be weak. Being said that, metal related industries will do good, in second place will come water related industries, in third place fire related industries, in fourth place wood related industries and in fifth place earth related industries.
- Metal industries deal with finance, banking, automobiles, manufacturing, military, and legal, to name some.
- Water industries deal with logistics, transportation, fast moving consumer goods, beverages and services, to name some.
- Fire industries deal with IT, food preparation, energy, oil and gas, entertainment, media, pharma, metaphysics and everything that enhances people’s lives.
- Wood industries deal with herbs, agriculture, education and commodities, to name some.
- Earth industries deal with properties, construction, mining and insurance, to name some.
In addition to checking the elements that you have on each pillar to determine your luck on each area of your life you should also check the stars that fall on the animal signs (branches) in your chart.
There are various constellations in the universe carrying stars with positive and negative effects. When stars with positive effects fall on any of the animal signs in your birth chart, you get support from the universe in that area of your life. When stars with negative effects fall on any of the animal signs in your birth chart, you find obstacles and challenges in that area of your life. When no stars fall on the animal signs in your birth chart you have to work harder because you have to do everything by yourself with no support from the universe.
The more positive stars you get on a given year, the better. The more negative stars you get on a given year, the worse. Since we are focusing on the good to concentrate the efforts in those areas of our lives, check out the number of positive stars on all the animal signs (branches) in your birth chart according to the information on Table 1.
Table 1 – Positive Stars in the Branches during the Year of the Rooster 2017
If for instance you work in an earth related industry, the industry is not going to do very well during the year of the rooster 2017 but if you have metal in your year pillar (the predominant element of the year) and the metal in your year pillar is a rooster with 6 positive stars, even though the industry is challenging, you might be one of the ones that will do great in the industry. Millions of people in the same industry won't do good but you will.
The application of astrology has many layers, another layer that you should check out to determine how to have good luck during the year of the rooster 2017 deals with the kinship of each element in the year’s chart, which is based on the five Chinese elements theory and is as follows:
- The element that the day master controls is money.
- The element that produces the day master is known as resource.
- The element that controls the day master is known as influence.
- The element that the day master produces is known as output.
- The same element as the day master is known as companion.
In the year of the rooster 2017 the element that the day master controls is wood. The chart has very little wood and no wood elements are seen on the stems so there is little money available in 2017 and it tends to be hidden. To have money luck or cash flow during the year of the rooster 2017 it is important to have at least one wood element in your birth chart, if you don’t have any, partner with someone that has some.
In general, during the year of the rooster 2017 if you have wood in your chart your cash flow will be positive or you will have easy access to cash. If you have metal you will have the possibility to increase your connections. If you have fire you will have the possibility to be influential and you will have the ability to sell. If you have water you will have the possibility to be profitable or to feel fulfillment at work. If you have earth you will have the possibility to own assets, resources or stuff. Make appropriate use of what you have in your chart to go with the flow, that is the way to have luck.
