Bazi House Of Body Pillar

The house of body (身宫) is a supplementary pillar that can be erected for bazi reading to look deeper into a person’s destiny.

Other extra pillars that can be generated include the house of conception and house of life.

In fact, when supplementary pillar are discussed in bazi, these 3 almost always comes in a trio.

But in practice, it is not necessary to generate all 3 all the time. It really depends on what the reader is attempting to decipher.

And while the name of this pillar contains the word body, it’s purpose is meant to read into the details of a person’s fate in terms of wealth.

At this point it is important to note that the word wealth is not the same as the word money.

So the variable that might be looked into can be aspects that make life fulfilling… which includes money as a component.

To generate the house of body pillar, the it’s earthly branch should be determined first.

This can be done by referring to the below table.

The rows refer to the month branch in bazi, and the columns refer to the hour branch.

E1 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3
E2 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4
E3 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5
E4 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6
E4 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7
E6 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8
E7 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9
E8 E11 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10
E9 E12 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11
E10 E1 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12
E11 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1
E12 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9 E10 E11 E12 E1 E2

Legend of the symbols can be found here.

It must be noted that the top row starts at E3 because that represents the first month of the solar calendar.

By referring to the above table, a person with a month branch of E9 and hour branch of E10 would have E7 as the earthly branch on the house of body.

With this branch identified, and using the year stem, refer to the table below to identify the heavenly stem of the house of life.

H1,H6 H2,H7 H3,H8 H4,H9 H5,H10
E3 H3 H5 H7 H9 H1
E4 H4 H6 H8 H10 H2
E5 H5 H7 H9 H1 H3
E6 H6 H8 H10 H2 H4
E7 H7 H9 H1 H3 H5
E8 H8 H10 H2 H4 H6
E9 H9 H1 H3 H5 H7
E10 H10 H2 H4 H6 H8
E11 H1 H3 H5 H7 H9
E12 H2 H4 H6 H8 H10
E1 H3 H5 H7 H9 H1
E2 H4 H6 H8 H10 H2

So if a person has a year stem of H1, then by referring to the row E7, which is the branch of the house of body palace identified earlier, we get H7.

The house of life will therefore be H7-E7.

While supplementary pillars like these can add a lot of details into a person’s bazi, it is important to note that bazi is not called “8 characters” for nothing.

In a huge majority of cases, analyzing the 8 characters would be more than sufficient to do advance bazi readings.

These extra pillars are usually only accessed for very specific purposes, which for the most part, are unnecessary.

When bazi is assessed for the feng shui of a house, there is no need to go into such details as these extra pillar are mostly meant for fortune telling rather than feng shui.
