Ah, now you are entering a rather complex area and if you are completely new to QiMen (Qi Men Dun Jia Destiny) this may contradict what you know about your Astrology chart.
Your personal Destiny Chart is a plethora of information that I read so I may assist you with life-changing decisions, pivotal career moments and the all important moments.
This QiMen Destiny Chart tells me exactly where you are in your life now, and what your next moves are best to be. Wanna see a snapshot of your QiMen chart…?
A little help with those techy bits…
A lot of of technical information in that calculation, it’s hard to know where to begin, what to focus on.
How about I explain these Qi Men Dun Jia names for you!
8 Palaces of Destiny
This is a permanent location on the compass designated to you at your time of birth.
Out of the 8 directions of North, Northeast, East, Southeast, South, Southwest, West and Northwest.
We view your Destiny Palace as a foundational component to your life and will use it to provide a Destiny Reading ~ it’s kinda like the jumping off point.
Even though you have a foundational palace, you will have a palace associated to your age, and this palace changes every 15 years.
Your life experiences will change, just like your palace changes, and is why some periods of time are luckier than others.
10 Stems of Destiny
A Stem is the internal influence a person has, somewhat like a guardian of Qi Men Dun Jia, you will be assigned one of these Stems in your Destiny chart.
Yes, their names are the same as in BaZi, but how they work is different in a QiMen chart. They will share the same elemental base. For example: Jia is Yang Wood and Geng is Yang Metal.
Each stem has a representation and will be part of your Destiny throughout your life:
- Jia = Power
- Yi = Security
- Bing = Wealth
- Ding = Wisdom
- Wu = Trust
- Ji = Sentiment
- Geng = Longevity
- Xin = Path
- Ren = Winning
- Gui = Destiny
In Qi Men Dun Jia situational analysis, the Stem is used to understand the behavioural aspect of the situation being analyzed, a wise influence and judge in our decision-making process.
8 Doors of Destiny
The Door you have at birth is only one part of you, and in different parts of your life you will have access to different doors and make decisions based on the door of the moment.
The 8 Doors are:
The Door becomes the action part of QiMen as it is the literal threshold over which one steps to a potentially new destiny…
Somewhat like a portal, they can change your path completely with an ‘open door’ referencing new beginnings, and a closed one referencing being stuck / blocked / jailed.
9 Stars of Destiny
Typically associated with the Heaven realm, this can be used to assess matters relating to weather, timing, and the environment in general.
The 9 Stars are:
- Heavenly Grass
- Heavenly Grain
- Heavenly Destructor
- Heavenly Assistant
- Heavenly Bird
- Heavenly Heart
- Heavenly Pillar
- Heavenly Ambassador

10 Guardians of Destiny
There are 10 Guardians of Destiny, and one will be yours ~ bestowed upon you at birth.

The 10 Guardians are:
- Surging Snake
