In the video, we will see a preview of Qi Men Dun Jia course conducted by Teacher Dougles Chan which is a 6 months course related to Qi Men Dun Jia.

**RECAPPED BASICS**

Let’s do some recap first, in case you may have forgotten.

**The Door** – the relationship, current luck, status.

It can be in any situation regardless of the asker or the answer itself.

**The Stars** – the timing and the space

T**he God** which is something we call the unknown parties, we cannot detect, so if the gods are not able to support you, then apparently things may not be working very well (third party unknown force).

So, if you combine the Doors: there are eight doors and there are nine stars and eight Gods so if we multiply the possibilities, there are 576 different combinations in terms of the achievement chart.

At the same time, I have not included the Stems, the Branches itself and other factors. So, in fact, there could be a few thousand different variations, but just to understand that the number of variations can be in the thousands, but that doesn’t matter.

Let’s get to the basics. Once you get the basics correct, anything in terms of combination will not be complicated. We also learn the five Elements.

**5 Elements:**

**Producing:**Understanding the producing factor where the receiving party will increase in energy, producing party will decrease in energy.**Counter/ Clash:**counter and class actually are the same. So sometimes people use counters so it’s a matter of which one you prefer to lose. It has the same meaning. Receiving party will decrease the energy drastically. The party that clashes with the other party will have little or no impact in decrease of energy. There will be a decrease but usually it’s like a minimum.

**8 Trigrams** – represent the bigger environment, will have an impact on the results.

**10 stems**

We also have learned 10 Stems which is Jia (甲), Yi (乙), Bing (丙), Ding (丁), Wu (戊), Ji (己), Geng (庚), Xin (辛), Ren (壬) and Gui (癸).

Remember, Jia is not always in the palaces, it appears in the popular but it will never appear in these 9 palaces. And it is your duty to find where the Jia. We already got a diagram to say Jia plus what equals to what so from that diagram we’re able to see where this Jia is hidden.

**12 Earthly Branches**

We also have learned about 12 Earthly Branches. 12 Earthly Branches are Zi (子), Chou (丑), Yin (寅) , Mao (卯), Chen (辰), Si (巳), Wu (午), Wei (未), Shen (申), You (酉), Xu (戌) and Hai (亥).

It’s good to learn how to pronounce you don’t really have to memorize as you go along you can go through a few more examples you will start to get the hang of it .Sometimes people don’t really memorize it then just go through it because most of the time, the words are there for you to do pronunciation so it’s quite easy.

**10 Stems + 10 Earthly Branches = 60 Jia Zi**

We have learned the 10 stems and then we have the 12 earthly branches. So, when we combine all this together, they become 60 Jia Zi. It means There are 60 different set of symbols:

These are what 60 Jia Zi stand for. There are the complete 60 digits in terms of the Chinese symbol and in terms of the English symbol. Just for understanding and you don’t really have to memorize it.

If you look at the vertical line from top to bottom, you will see 10 Stems (Jia (甲), Yi (乙), Bing (丙), Ding (丁), Wu (戊), Ji (己), Geng (庚), Xin (辛), Ren (壬) and Gui (癸)). every row is the same in terms of orders.

If you look on the right of each Stems, we have 12 Earthly Branches (Zi (子), Chou (丑), Yin (寅) , Mao (卯), Chen (辰), Si (巳), Wu (午), Wei (未), Shen (申), You (酉), Xu (戌) and Hai (亥).) They repeat to the end.

Every single combination of the stem and the branch equates to a year. In this instance, we’ll talk about a year. It can be months, it can be hours, but in this instance, we talk about years.

Current year which is 2021, what does it really mean what is the symbol that represents every set equates to a year. See an example below:

This horoscope is in terms of Chinese culture or the astrologist. We need to understand which year we are in every time we see a chart, especially in divination.

In the next lesson, I will actually show you what the implications of every year are, especially if you are going to do a definition of what each set of symbols really represents in terms of energy. To understand this, we have to really memorize.

In this lesson, we are going to officially start the real Qi Men Dun Jia.

Whatever we have learned in the last five lessons, we are basically just scratching the surface. We are laying the foundation of Qi Men Dun Jia. We have learned about the Doors, the Stars, etc.

The first topic for this lesson is going to be marriage and relationships.

**QIMEN DIVINATION: MARRIAGE AND RELATIONSHIPS**

So, what do we look for when we define a marriage and relationship?

These are 4 steps:

**Step 1:** Hour Stem, estimate an answer of the outcome.

**Step 2:** Check the useful god, Liu He (Parner) box, what does it say

(we check the useful god, useful god means we need to find a specific symbol that is related to the relationship which is called the partner we use the partner to see the implications.)

**Step 3:** Identify who is the subject (the asker, the asker’s friends, the asker’s parents, etc) and its symbol. If you choose the wrong subject then the whole meaning would most likely be wrong.

**Step 4:** Identify the associated partner symbols and the location at the Yin & Yang Plate, check below:

Yi (乙) and Geng (庚)

Bing (丙) and Xin (辛)

Ding (丁) and Ren (壬)

Wu (戊) and Gui (癸)

Ji (己) and Wu (戊)

For example:

- If somebody would ask you is a lady and you already spotted this person as a subject, a lady. if the lady which is the wife is Yi (乙) and then the husband will represent as Geng (庚).
- If a guy i would ask you and you find that this person is a Bing (丙), so the wife will likely be a Xin (辛).

So how do we see this in a relationship?

We have to see the in Ying Yang Marriage Plate….
