Dear Joey, I don't understand why I always can't do well for my exams. I flunk my A level really badly last year and my O level result isn't as satisfcatory as it seem. In the end, i intended to go to a Private Uni to pursue my further studies. My question is:Would I do well in the future for my studies?

Hi Joey,

 I have always been fascinated by bazi but have not come across well written ones until I read yrs. I have a few of yr books both in feng shui as well as bazi (all the 3 books). "The Power of X" was very informative and insightful. It provided me with a better perspective of the subject. I have also attended your bazi talks in 2011. 

 However the understanding that I had is only sufficient for me to know that my son's bazi has conflicts all over and is pretty bad. Due to my lack of expertise, I am not able to fully interpret beyond that and I am truly concern for his future well being. Need your help to shed some lights on the below : 

1. My son was born on 16th of May 1998 in Penang at 9.00 a.m. However we all know that M'sia has shifted it's time forward by an hr. Hence should we be using 8.00 a.m. as his time of birth or stick to the M'sian time of 9.00 a.m.? 

 2. Based on the bazi calculator, he has all the conflicting animal in his pillars - year (tiger), month (snake), day (pig) and time (snake). He has clash, harm, combination destruction and ungrateful punishment thru an external clash when he hit his 20s and 30s. It is almost a bumpy emotional ride for him all his life. His chart is also too hot and dry. Does it mean that he will be lonely all his life? As for his health, what shld I be looking out for? How can I help him in overcoming future adversity in life?

Hi Joey, 

 Upon reading your books on the destiny code, initially I have the impression that I am a weak Xin Metal Day Master. However, I am now reading till the 4th book of the destiny code and am beginning to have doubt about the strength of my Day Master. Accordingly to my season of birth, I should be born in Spring, where wood is dominant and metal is trapped, so that should be a weak Day Master. However, upon reading the 4th book of the destiny code (advance examples), it seems that my chart can call support from Rob Wealth Stars from Geng present in the Hourly branch and the friend star, Xin present in the Day branch. In addition, You (Rooster) + Chen (Dragon) transform to Metal in the six harmony combination and Shen (Monkey) + You (Rooster) is the half Autumn formation of the 3 Directional Combination. 

 So my Day Master is actually a strong Day Master? Thank you

Hi Joey, 

 My marriage have been struggling for over 2 years and my body cannot take the stress any longer. I keep a smile in my face and pretend that everything is ok but then I feel so alone. Additionally, I have a hard time with my business, I have not yet found success and can be homeless any day. I have seen a lot of fortune teller in my past and not in the purpose of asking about my love life but they all - no exception- would bring up the subject and tell me that my husband is my soulmate. Do you agree? 

 If so, then why is it so hard for us to get along- why are we in this situation right now. I cannot see a good ending to this. Please tell me, do you see divorce in my path? 

 I am also very concerned about my business. Do you see success in the field I am or should I think about a career change? Will I be financially secure soon? 

 Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?? Thank you very much for your help. I go to Mahayana temple and I will make a donation for you. 

 Best, Marilyn

Hi Joey, I had been reading your books on Bazi and I understand that I am in the midst of 10 years clash in my relationship right now. Currently, the relationship is getting worse, and i am just wondering is there any cure on it based on my bazi. I am undecided on the next step. I attended your seminars before and heard you mentioned something sort of getting divorce and re-married again. Will it works? Thank You.

Got a copy of "THE TEN THOUSAND YEAR CALENDAR" pocket edition and on page 265 for 3rd Jan 1952 it stated that the month pillar is Xin Chou. However, the Bazi Chart generated from your software stated that my month pillar is Geng Zi. I noted that on the same page 265,Geng Zi is for one month early. Am I reading this correct. Just wonder! Could you advice.

Is it true that I should not rent a shoplot which is below/lower than the mainroad? If so, why are those tenants like KFC and pizzahut and the rest of the shops are doing very good business there? I appreciated if you could help to answer this question because my intention is to rent the shop next to Pizzahut for my first 24 hours' convenience store like 7eleven but using my own brand name.

Dear Joey, 

 I'm really fond of bazi, which has enormously helped me to improve my life and understand my inner self. I know there is alot to study and research in order to fully understand this startling world of metaphysics, so I would like to ask you for help to have a better understanding of this. Well..My question is about lucky elements, transformation and dominant self. According to what I've read and researched so far my lucky elements are water, metal and earth. 

But, I read that also under certain type of circumstances a daymaster can become into a dominant self, and therefore, the favorable elements would be the opposite. 

I would like to know if during 2014 I could become a dominant self because of the change of luck cycle and transformations that might take place during the year, and if June of that year would be a good month for performing and showing talents to an audience in order to gain recognition and fame. Lastly, I would like to know what happens to the branch's main element after the transformation.

 For instance, my two void branches dragon and snake can transform into metal because of the combination with the rooster, season of birth and the yang metal on the stem acting as a catalyst to make iit happen. 

On the other hand, would the yang earth and yang fire of the dragon and snake respectively remain as metal or there would be still earth and fire as the main qi underneath?

 Does the snake stand for competitors or money? 

 Thank you so much for your time and help, Best regards, Camilo

I've been reading your Pure Feng Shui book and doing calculations using your site, in order to finally get some proper Feng Shui calculations done(wasted a lot of time with contradictory "new age" feng shui books before I realized they must be wrong if so full of errors--Cate Bramble set me on the proper path--Classical Feng Shui) in order to improve my "wealth" in life. (Health and Relationships are not issues at this time) 

 You mention that we have 33% Heaven/Man/Earth "Luck" and then I notice while laying out the palaces, pretty much all of my apartment/house(technically an apt, but each apt is separate building) except 2 palaces is "bad" and I looked at other charts in period 7 and 8 to see what an optimal house facing chart would be and notice that they all have at least 4 bad palaces(for wealth, 3/5, health, 2 sitting, etc.) which takes the 33% down to what, like 10%?

 So, if my man luck is let's say at least 15%, and my Feng Shui luck is about 10%, then even if my Heaven luck is full 33%(which I'm sure it's not, so let's say at least 15%) or at least 15%, then I'm working with only 40% luck, or 55% if I fully optimize my "man luck."

 If this is the case in general, how is anyone supposed to get anywhere? Am I missing something in my calculations? It doesn't seem to make sense to me that you would only use like 2 or 3 rooms in a house just to not activate the annual and facing/sitting stars--what's the point of having a house at that point? (TL,DR:Feng Shui seems to have a minimal impact on your overall luck, limiting your use of your own house to 2 or 3 rooms, maybe 4 in most charts, so what's the point of having a house at all? (Am I figuring this wrong?) Thanks for your time.

Dear Joey, 

 I have been reading and practising Feng Shui in my home, and understand that there should be no renovations at SE sector (5 yellow + Grand Duke) and S sector (3 killings) this year. However, my concern is: would hacking work of my direct neighbours (who share the same walls) affect the Feng Shui of my home? If yes, how to mitigate the effects? My home is at second floor of a condominium, and it is directly above the clubhouse. The condo management has decided to hack and renovate the common toilets at the clubhouse, which is located directly below the SE and S sectors of my home! 

Will this afflict the 5 yellow, grand duke and 3 killings in my own unit? I am concerned because when they hacked the male toilet which is below the N sector (sickness star) of my home last week, both my mother and I who were at home during then fell sick. I am not sure if this was a coincidence or it had afflicted the #2 star. Now they are going to hack the female toilet which is below the SE and S sectors, and I am really worried about this. 

 Appreciate your advice please! Thanks a million!

How is my career path? Are they too many 'siu yan' at work place? It seems to be always too much gossips around office. Also, how is my marriage path?

Hi Joey, 

 I have a question. I have seen some fortune tellers in Japan and here in Malaysia. They have told me something that is worrying me a lot. Based on I believe on my BAZI, two versions of stories came out concerning my timing of marriage. In Japan they have told me that I should marry after 35 years old or else I will have a abrupt separation by accident or some abrupt situation. In here Malaysia they have told me before 35 years I should marry or I will have abrupt separation from my partner... Now I am almost 35 or in Chinese year already 35...I have a partner and I am going to marry. However this fact is annoying me very much. 

Do you have any advises or is this showing me in my Bazi? If it is which is the correct version? Thank you

Dear Joey, 

 I have a great passion on Bazi, which really helps in shedding the light for understanding myself and the people around me; and I had gone through your Bazi book again and again, from Book 1 (THE DESTINY CODE) to Book 4 (ANALYZING THE 10 GODS) plus the text book of 10 gods, which really informative and benefited a lot from it. It is great to have such a page for asking you questions here. However, I still have a few matters that I'm still uncertain, which in the hope that you would shed some light on it. 

 1. My Day Master is weak in the cold month but due to the support of resource and companion stars, it becomes strong. Hence, the favorable elements will be Wood and Fire while the rest are unfavorable. Is this true? 

 2. Water element is prosperous; while wood element is strong in my chart. However the water is cold, it is ineffective in growing the wood, is this true? Worst still, water element is only present in the hidden stem, would it worsen the situation of growing the wood element? 

 3. Fire element is extremely weak, it can be found only in the graveyard branch of WEI Earth. Is that any possibility for the wood to grow the Fire? 

 4. Currently I'm working with my father, at the meantime I also invest in stock market. Recently, I plan to involve in the field of food & beverage, which will be done in the form of joint venture, in another 5 yrs time. At that time I will be in the LP of GUI SI and there is a combination of SI and SHEN to form Water element. Can I interpret this as unfavorable for joint venture activity? What should I do? 

5. Is that any opportunity coming ahead for kicking start of my joint venture business? 

 6. At last, I have noticed that my IW is quite strong in my chart, due to the partial three harmony Wood formation. In my view, I will be in in the unfavorable LP (Metal Luck/Companion Star) during that time. Is that likely that I will suffer of losing wealth at that time?

 Thanking you in advance for your kind attention. 

 Regards, Yee

I am reluctant at first to ask you this question as it might seem like i am not making an effort to find out the answer myself. I bought your book on The Power of X - Ten Gods, and it does help me understand my character and how i should improve the negative traits i didn't admit i had previously when i was told. The negative traits of an Direct and Indirect Resource in me as stated in the book let me understand why i can't seem to stay in a job for more than 3 years, i am determine to change. 

My question are

 1) if i had a strong or weak Day Master, i believe it shows weak, please help as i can't seem to conclude the strength. 

2) since i have the year and hour pillar as such, is there the slightest chance to overcome it and be happy? it does affect me untill i learnt of this and now it make sense of why i have few friends and not much of any affinity with my own family. 

Sorry to be lengthy, i really hope you can spare your precious time to advice me.

Im new to chinese astrology and was wondering if you could enlighten me on the subject of the four steeds as I have had some diffculty finding information regarding this subject, I have three of them with the rooster being inplace of the monkey for my hour pillar. Is this an advantage or disadvantage? Also, does it still mean that I gain the advantages of having the ability to consider myself as meeting the requirements for the four steeds? Any information regarding the four steeds or feedback that pertains to enlightening me is greatly appreciated! thanks

Hi Joey,

 I have bought the complete series of your Bazi Destiny Code books and some books on fengshui. The books on bazi is very informative and accurate. My DOB is 17/6/1971 at 9.40am. 

I have not sure of my own Bazi in the following aspects:

 i) Is my Day Master weak due to not born in the right season or moderately strong due to the support from dominant Xin and Geng hidden in the Snake? 

ii) Is it correct that Metal is my favourable element. Earth is my second favourable element? 

iii) I have changed jobs and industries a few times in the last 10 years. There is no stability in employment these years. Will it be better if I venture to become an entrepreneur? 

iv) If the answer to iii) is yes, will be better to venture through partnership or solo, especially during the Luck Pillar of Ji Chou? 

v) Will the Ji Chou Luck Pillar be very good due to the Snake+Rooster+Ox luck pillar to produce Metal as resources or very bad due to the Gui Water contaminate by Ji Earth? 

 Thank you.

Hi Master Joey, 

 I am from Singapore and I have read a few of your books on Feng Shui and also some of the DVD series like “Discover Feng Shui with Joey Yap”. I find it very interesting and different from the many other “New Age Feng Shui “ type books I have read and I could not stop getting more of your books to read. I have actually implemented activating the water features at the locations mentioned in your book “Your Aquarium Here” about a week ago but now was feeling very uneasy after viewing through the Annual Affliction like 5 Yellow as mentioned in your DVD Episode 12. 

I do not know if having the aquarium there would activate the 5 yellow which is also at the SE this year. I really hope you can help tell me what I should do next.. I live in an apartment on the 2nd level of a 8 level unit. My house is facing South 2 Period 7, so I activated the water features at SE, East and SW, as recommended in your book above. 

The water feature at SE2 138 to 145deg. is an aquarium with fishes seated on a 90cm metal rack. It is at my balcony which is about 10cm lower ground than the rest of my apartment. The aquarium is placed next to the window with a many potted on the patio, my purpose was to block a inverted T road junction about 50 m away.(ie. My house is at the receiving end of T junction.) 

 Also, another question is about the sector defined by the 9 grid scctor for the flying star chart. If 1 of the 9 grid sector actually has a small section of another room in this grid, should I consider it as the other grid or the former. My question came from my trying to activate the SW water feature which has a 6M,8W but since it is a bedroom, I tried activating it just outside of the room, which by the 9 grid method, is still the SW sector. 

 I hope you can help me, Thank you in advancce

Hi Master Joe! I have been buying your bazi destiny code series book and I love it! I have some doubts, I would like to ask that in my DOB, in the hour pillar, I have IW as the main qi. I would like to ask 2 questions: 1)Does IW associate with investor career? Because becoming an investor is one of my dream. 2)Does IW in the hour pillar also means that I will have the entrepreneur luck or in investment ONLY when I reach 60 years old and above (old age)? Thank you.
