Recently, I saw the sad news of Bollywood star Irfan Khan whom had recently passed on. For anyone who may not be familiar with him, he appeared as the charismatic CEO and owner of the Jurrasic Park in Jurrasic World (2015) movie. He also starred in other Hollywood movies such as The Amazing Spiderman, Life of Pi and Slumdog Millionaire to name a few. What struck me was at the prime age he was at – age 53 when he passed on due to illness relating to Neuroendocrine tumor.
He announced of his illness back in 2018 and after two years of battle, he left. What I would like to share is some of the warning signs with the arrival of Fan Yin (反吟) and Fu Yin (伏吟) found in his chart.
As the image above shared, he entered into a Fu Yin (伏吟) luck pillar in 2016. This also means he is in the Fu Yin luck for 10 years from 2016 to 2026.
What does Fu Yin mean or imply for a person having it?
What is Fan Yin and Fu Yin?
To give a basic understanding, both terminology can be explained as below.
Fan Yin happens when there is an arrival of a pillar causing elemental clash. Depending on where the clash happen, it signals unfortunate events or can cause harm to the affected person or affect relationships.
"Fu Yin" happens when its the exact same pillar appearing.
It denotes a sad or tear event happening during that stage of your life.
Mostly, these are not exactly good to have in one's bazi chart. Only for some exception cases it may be of good omen.
Elements his bazi chart should avoid
Basing on his bazi chart, we can assume Irfan Khan likely has a strong metal (辛) day master based on his bazi chart. From here, we can denote that his favourable elements are water and wood.
In his case, the encounter with strong resource star signify experiencing poor health and proness to fall sick.
Entering the negative "Fu Yin" luck pillar in 2016 and the trigger
During 2016, the luck pillar of 丙午 pillar appeared and mirrored Irfan Khan's bazi chart at age 49 - as illustrated in point (a) in image. As in the case of "Fu Yin", it is indicating a possible of sad event waiting to happen. When an unfavourable element or time is encountered in the next 10 years, it would trigger an event.
In 2018, the earth dog year arrived as highlighted in point (b) - a strong earth year. Being a strong metal day master, more earth as explained would mean health issue. This is the trigger that cause his bazi to worsen during this "Fu Yin" luck pillar. Through this analysis, we can gather that there is strong odds of unfortunate event manifesting from this illness.
During then, he announced on the social media of his illness where he had a tumor in March 2018.
Appearance of Fu Yin and Fan Yin together during 2020
In 2020, a "Fan Yin" situation now arise in Irfan Khan's chart after his illness. This can be denote through arrival of the 庚子 year clashing into the luck pillar and year pillar of 丙午 - illustrated in pt (d). The top half of 丙 fire attacking 庚 metal and bottom half of 子 water attacking 午 fire. This forms the pillar of 天克地冲, not a good formation to have.
I believe the "Fan Yin" clash together within the "Fu Yin" luck pillar was the last straw and creates alot of instability with negative influence. When a year pillar suffers a clash, it also meant bodily harm. This was shown by a "Fan Yin" clash with his luck pillar too. Sadly, the news of his passing was reported in 2020 at his prime age of just 53.
