In our previous article, we introduced the importance of Daymasters (扶抑) to the Chinese metaphysical system of Bazi (八字). The Daymaster serves as the centrepiece of the Bazi chart, reflecting an individual’s core identity. By interacting with the Bazi chart’s Year, Month and Hour pillars, the Daymaster reveals insightful information about one’s personality, characteristics, inherent strengths, weaknesses and potential life trajectory.
Gaining an understanding of your Daymaster can be beneficial for personal development — fostering greater self-awareness, enhancing interpersonal relationships and guiding life decisions. Daymasters are classified as either “strong” or “weak” within the framework of a Bazi chart as a reflection of their prevalence. A “strong” Daymaster shows a significant presence of its element, whereas a “weak” Daymaster indicates a lack of its element.
The study of Bazi includes a multitude of concepts and branches of thinking, including the concept of Useful Gods (用神) which describes certain Heavenly Stems (天干) or Earthly Branches (地支) that perform specific roles. These include strengthening or weakening the Daymaster, adjusting the ‘temperature’ and ‘humidity’ of the Bazi chart (调侯), bridging opposing elements (通关), and addressing sicknesses within the chart (病药).
As the first of the Ten Heavenly Stems, Jia Wood represents the Yang aspect of the Wood element in the Bazi system. It is closely associated with growth, resilience and vitality reminiscent of the cycle of rejuvenation that the arrival of spring brings to nature.
In this article, we delve into the profound characteristics, strengths, and influences of the Jia Wood Daymaster, exploring its vital role within the Bazi framework. A thorough examination of these qualities garners valuable insight into the fundamental nature of the individuals born under this Daymaster. Additionally, we analyse how the Useful Gods concept and the temperature adjustment theory impact the balance and harmony of Jia Wood individuals’ Bazi charts.
Embodying the resilience of trees, the Jia Wood Daymaster represents strength, stability, and ambition. Like a towering tree, the traits of a Jia Wood Daymaster are firm yet flexible, stretching toward higher aspirations.
However, Jia Daymasters may also be stubborn and persistent in pursuing their goals, which can be misinterpreted as being thoughtless or callous towards others. Their decision-making processes may be impulsive, often overlooking minor details in favour of rushing towards their goals.
Men with a Jia Wood Daymaster typically show a strong sense of independence, resilience and a gentle demeanour. They often have clear goals, are straightforward and value integrity. Notable Jia Wood Daymasters include Elon Musk, Nikola Tesla and Bruce Lee.
Women with a Jia Wood Daymaster are often kind and generous, creating harmonious environments around them. They usually show consistency in their professional life, are innovative, and tend to improve and advance existing ideas. Notable Jia Wood Daymasters include Condoleeza Rice and Kate Winslet.
In Bazi, the concept of ‘Temperature Adjustment’ stems from the Qiong Tong Bao Jian《穷通宝鉴》which helps us understand the level of accomplishment and wealth capacity of an individual based on the presence of Temperature Adjustment Useful God (调侯用神) in their Bazi chart.
The month that a Daymaster is born affects the temperature and humidity level in an individual’s Bazi chart — namely, factors such as Cold (寒), Warm (暖), Damp (湿) and Dry (燥). A Bazi chart would be considered a high-achieving chart if it contains the favourable Heavenly Stems that help to adjust its temperature and humidity levels.
For example, a Jia Wood daymaster born in the month of Tiger (the first month of Spring) would require Bing Fire Heavenly Stem as the Temperature Adjustment Useful God because the first month of Spring is relatively cold and thus requires sunlight to grow and flourish. Hence, Bing Fire — which represents the Sun — is required to be present in the natal Bazi chart in order for the chart to thrive and prosper.
The tables below summarise the different Temperature Adjustment Useful God that a Jia Wood daymaster would need:
It is important to note that the precise interpretation of these adjustments is dependent on the individual’s Bazi chart. Underscoring the nuanced nature of Bazi analysis, these adjustments require a comprehensive knowledge of Chinese metaphysics for accurate application.
