The Xuan Kong Da Gua (玄空大卦), or XKDG in short, method of date selection assigns element and period numbers to each pillar of the sexagenary cycle.

These variables play a critical role in selecting auspicious dates for various types of activities. It also helps one avoid bad days to do specific types of activities.

The number on top of each square is the element number (玄空五行) and the number below is the period number (挨星卦運).

According to hetu, the element numbers represent the following elements:

  • 1,6 Water
  • 2,7 Fire
  • 3,8 Wood
  • 4,9 Metal

1, 6, 7, 2 are considered yin numbers, and 9, 4, 3, 8 are considered yang numbers.
