A Little Help With Those Techy Bits…
Palace 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…
Particularly useful when looking for a lost item, as this can show ‘where’ the item is geographically
Stem of Destiny
The Stem is the internal influence a person has, and looks the same as in BaZi ~ but it’s different…
In QiMen, the Stem is used to behaviour aspect of the situation being analysed.
There are 10 Stems:
Jia ~ Yi ~ Bing ~ Ding ~ Wu ~ Ji ~ Geng ~ Xin ~ Ren ~ Gui
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
Door of Destiny
This is almost like a real door, and is connected to the physical realm.
The Door becomes the action part of QiMen and will show if the outcome has a positive aspect, or not…
Star of Destiny
Typically associated with the Heaven realm, this can be used to assess matters relating to weather, timing, and the environment in general.
There are 9 Stars in QiMen:
Guardian of Destiny
There are 10 Guardians of Destiny, and one will be yours ~ bestowed upon you at birth.
This is different from your Ming Gua, or your BaZi Day Master ~ this is a whole other realm.
Your Guardian of Destiny is kinda like your modus operandi and will direct your actions with the characteristics of the Deity.
There are 4 Palaces that can be viewed to find answers regarding the 4 connected areas of your life:
Career ~ Relationship ~ Health ~ Wealth
Once you open a QiMen Door, ya gotta walk through it... So let’s do exactly that!
