Understanding Your Daymaster — Gui Water (癸水)

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins

A significant role in the study of Chinese metaphysics, Daymasters (扶抑) form a central foundation within the complex Bazi (八字) system. Intertwined with the Year, Month and Hour pillars of an individual’s Bazi chart, Daymasters represent an individual’s inherent strengths, weaknesses, and potential life trajectory. Therefore, a comprehensive understanding of an individual’s Daymaster allows for profound insights into achieving personal growth.

Delving into the Gui Water Daymaster

Gui Water resonates with the Yin aspect of the Water element and is prominently represented by smaller bodies of water like rain or mist.

This article thoroughly examines the unique characteristics, strengths and influences of the Gui Water Daymaster — exploring the utilisation of Imperial Feng Shui principles in our Bazi analysis. Principles such as Useful Gods and Temperature Adjustment can allow us a better understanding of integrating such aspects into the balance and harmony of our day-to-day lives.

Traits of Gui Water Daymasters

Represented by natural elements of rain, clouds, mist, and other small bodies of water, Gui Water symbolises the subtle, gentle and nourishing presence of water in its various forms.

  • Observant and Intuitive: These individuals are observant, making intuitive leaps and drawing conclusions from the environment and happenings around them.
  • Imaginative and Innovative: With free-flowing creativity and imagination, Gui Water individuals form innovative solutions to overcoming their obstacles and providing new insights into different situations.
  • Influential and Charismatic: Gui Water individuals have influential and charismatic personalities, making them adept in their debate skills, winning over arguments and influencing others with their point of view.

However, Gui Water Daymasters tend to be empathetic towards others, which may manifest as agitation or anger when facing conflict. While innovative and intelligent in thinking, these individuals tend to be fickle-minded, often changing their interests or careers quickly. As a result, they may not fully consider the aspects of different issues in detail.

Men with a Gui Water Daymaster exhibit a remarkable skill for surmounting challenges through the application of delicate and gentle approaches. When facing strategic scenarios, their patience and composure empower them to seize the upper hand against their opponents. Furthermore, their acumen shines through in their capacity to engage in profound and analytical thinking. Notable Gui Water Daymasters include Andy Lau, Stephen King and Elton John.

Women with a Gui Water Daymaster exhibit a solemn albeit gentle demeanour. They tend to be humble and cautious, excelling in thoughtful coordination while effortlessly maintaining emotional and easygoing flexibility — creating a harmonious atmosphere. They exhibit an exuberant sense of humour, adapting well to their surroundings. Demonstrating patience and understanding, these individuals willingly extend a helping hand to others. Notable Gui Water Daymasters include Meryl Streep and Alicia Keys.

Adjusting the Temperature of the Daymaster

Originating from the Chinese classic, Qiong Tong Bao Jian《穷通宝鉴》, the Temperature Adjustment theory in Imperial Feng Shui speaks to the significance of the concept within the system of Bazi. The concept stipulates that the level of achievement and wealth potential experienced by an individual is dependent on the presence of the Temperature Adjustment Useful God (调侯用神) within their Bazi chart. A comprehensive understanding and leverage of this concept offer valuable insight into assessing the prosperity and success factors of each Bazi chart.

For example, a Gui Water Daymaster born in the month of Tiger (the 1st month of Spring) would require Xin Metal (辛金) as the main Temperature Adjustment Useful God, with Bing Fire (丙火) being used as the supporting elements. These elements should be protruded in the Heavenly Stems of the Bazi chart for it to be considered wealthy and successful.

The table below summarises the different Temperature Adjustment Useful God that a Xin Metal Daymaster requires:

An accurate application of the Useful Gods and Temperature Adjustment theories hinges upon the distinctive arrangement within an individual’s Bazi chart. To adeptly apply these techniques of Imperial Feng Shui, a profound grasp of Chinese metaphysical principles is imperative.
