Looking at this chart, does it struck you with the number of water in the bazi chart? What does the water element do and represent? Is it like some mainstream belief that water is wealth and the more the merrier?
Welcome to this case study of Mauricio Pochettino, an Argentine football manager and the ex-manager of Tottenham Hotspur football club. For football fans, you would know that after bringing the club to one of the most successful season going into the Champions League Final in 2019, he has been sacked.
The areas we would explore and analyse some coincidence:
1. Why did he suddenly lost 7 out of the 12 English Premier League (EPL) games since Feb 2019?
2. Why was he suddenly sacked on November 2019?
3. Did the Pig year (Pig is of water element) caused him his troubles?
Started the season well but.. what happened?
Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur started the 2018-19 season well. Reaching February 2019, the team was 2nd in the EPL. They won 20 out of their 26 games at that time (a strong 77% win rate). But since February 2019, he only won 4 of the next 12 EPL games left (a very low win rate of 25%), losing 7 of them. That is a huge drop in winning percentage anyone can see.
What is the explanation of Pochettino going through a bad phase since February 2019?
Based on Pochettino's bazi chart, he is a 壬 water day master. Other water that are already in his chart are what we term as "Friend stars" (比肩). This is due to being the same element and thus the term “Friend stars”.
With many water already in his chart as plotted, he would usually dislike going through water years. It imbalance the bazi chart with arrival of more water (such as Pig or Rat years). As such, 2019 being a Pig year which is water, is not favourable for him as the year begins. This is what we call 比肩夺财. Meaning arrival of friend stars robbing his fortune literally. This also cause him to go through bad phase in life in general.
What happen after the Pig water year started:
All these were some of issues reported in various news reports.
Pochettino has been with the club for over 5 years and it is known that the club has been getting better by the year. His downfall seem to be peaking by the day as 2019 progresses.
Why November 2019?
The Pig water month started on 8 November. 20 November 2019 was the day he got sacked. Barely 2 weeks after the start of the Pig month. If you look at it, you could say the arrival of water element is also the strongest during this point of time. It was a extremely cold day if you look at the gloomy chart below, a water month and year on a metal day.
Coincidence he got sack during this unfavorable period on the arrival of water month?
I have mentioned earlier the effects with too much water. Pochettino's end to his reign at Tottenham is very sudden given he has been doing well over the past 5 years. Things really turn fast. This is even ironic given what he has brought to the club, albeit without winning any trophies. In my opinion, most would not have expect him to leave if this question was posted before he started losing.
What happens after this? Looking on the bright side, Pochettino's issues are only caused by this year and 2020 (2020 is a rat year which happens to be a water year too). Upon the passing of this water period, he should do well again.
This forms my analysis of how being a water day master, the arrival of water has greatly affected him. (As with the reported issues that were reported)
In part, why was career affected? Because, this pig carries the earth on top. This year happens to be a Earth Pig year which earth represents his career.
The "she" we are talking about is an iconic Hollywood actress whom achieve fame in 1990 in “Ghost” the movie. She subsequently starred in various movies in the 90s. In 1996, she became the highest paid actress with $12.5M to star in Striptease which was unprecedented then.
She is Demi Moore and through her birthdate, I present to you some interesting coincidence. (Believe it or not..)
Demi Moore is born on 11 Nov 1962. She is a 癸 water born (highlighted in turquoise box below) in a winter water month of 亥. As always, the day master forms one of the focus of reading. Although we do not know her hour of birth, it is safe to say she is a strong water based on her chart drawn. (Her hour pillar in chart is estimated)
What we can immediately draw from her chart:
She is presently 57 and is in the 乙巳 pillar (age 51 pillar) – a good phase of her life. In fact, those highlighted in red are luck pillars that are highly possibly her good years.
From her childhood days to now
The blue box denotes her childhood and formative years from 1 to 21 years old (the small numbers on top of luck pillar denotes her age).
a. Childhood (Highlighted in blue box):
She has shared of her unhappy childhood and negative influence from her mother. As she is a strong water, the metal luck she goes through would cause more issues.
So how is metal link to her family? Metal represents her mother since metal produces (think “give birth”) water. It was reported that her mother accepted money from a man and with her knowledge, raped her at home. (something that was well documented online) This is an instance of harm when there is a imbalance.
This happened during her age of 15 when she just cross into 酉 metal luck which is another metal appearing in her luck pillar.
b. Health Issues (Highlighted in blue box)
Health wise, it was reported that she suffered from kidney dysfunction and lazy eye issue. In Chinese Metaphysics, the 5 elements (五行) represents various organs. Kidney is represented by water element. Eye represented by wood.
How does the metal years she went through affect her health? I mentioned earlier that metal is not favourable for her. With the strong metal luck in her earlier years, this brought about imbalance of water as metal produces more water. Too much water causes her wood to decay and rot too. Arrival of metal luck also attacks wood. This was thus reflected in her health where she reportedly had to overcome kidney disease and had eye operation during young.
Fire was badly needed to keep her warm and dry but is lacking – yes, this also implied money issues represented by fire. She reportedly need to relocate more than 30 times due to her job changes by parent.
c. Career (Highlighted in red box)
Demi Moore went through money luck and did well in her career during the 90s:
All in all, she has went through good luck pillars till date – her nett worth can easily be found online. This is due to the Fire pillars (her money luck) she has went through as highlighted. Of course, this is also due to Fire was favourable to her.
That said, it does not mean anyone going through money luck period would mean big bucks. If money luck is unfavourable for you, you would stand to lose money. Her next unfavourable times would come during age 71, why? Make a guess by checking out the earlier luck pillar image what element is coming up during age 71...
One common use for bazi is for people to check on their relationship luck. Many a times, I have highlighted marriage may not be suitable for everyone. Most often is due to bad outcome, which the bazi charts depict one of the possible categories:
Above is a bazi chart of a lady I met previously. She had consulted on her relationship. As she had been married for less than a year, she has already experienced many issues with husband. She was hoping to see what she can do for her marriage but I could tell she was prepared for the worst.
My reading prior to the meeting was she does not have a lot of luck in love and likely to be her first or second relationship only. And her partner’s quality is likely to be less ideal. Both were verified as we spoke. (When we say partner’s quality is less than ideal, usually can mean unable to provide, major character flaws etc. to put it generally.) Now the issue lies in their differences in opinion and husband can get quite aggressive with her.
Why is this bazi chart having such issues?
In this chart, there are at least 3 areas to show poor relationship love luck. Here which I would highlight some areas.
The spouse palace has been attacked as illustrated where 酉 attacks into 卯 (metal attacks wood). Spouse palace in layman term, is where the spouse stays. If this palace is having friction and being attacked, the odds of having good relationship goes down. (Ref above image) This is thus a tell tale sign of issue. Most people that I have seen having this clash have higher odds of not being in relationship or in a less than ideal relationship.
Wood represents the husband/relationship luck in this chart. But the wood over here is weak in the metal autumn season. As such, the husband would likely carry major flaws to the relationship. The lady has shared that her husband has been very aggressive and hard to communicate.
Third point, water in the chart represents the lady’s mother in law. In the chart, you can see the water (MIL) supports wood (husband). Interestingly, it is noted that the lady shared in event of quarrels, mother in law always sided her husband regardless right or wrong.
To add on, this lady is a weak 己 earth day master. She would favour having earth and fire. It must also be noted that during the consultation this year, its 2019 which is year of earth pig (pig = water). Pig clashes away the Fire snake (亥 attacks巳) . This leaves her lacking support from fire and therefore feeling helpless in 2019.
In conclusion, the various pointers highlighted already bring up the odds that she would have an unhappy marriage. There are other areas which I have not shared in this article as it can be quite technical. Of course, one could say that upon knowing the above, it may not change the course and some may still get married.
How bazi reading provides insight
Bazi chart would also show various character traits. Positive traits such as feminine, gentle, hardworking, honest, or negative traits where one may be flirtatious, spendthrift can be seen. Other interesting characters such as e.g. being very money prudent, temperament does show in one's bazi chart.
The objective to analyse these character traits is to not only to look at compatibility of character. But importantly, should you only be in a relationship for short term, such characters may not reveal yet. It would be helpful to allow one to have a clearer picture and decide if one wish to commit further if at a crossroad.
Eventually, you are given a chance to consider hard against the bazi reading pointers, (if) spotted before taking the plunge.
