The Beginning age for Major Fortune

The beginning age for each of major fortunes is different for each person. It depends on five-element formation number. The five-element formation number is the beginning age of the first major fortune. The five-element formation number is determined by the heaven stem and earth branch of the Life palace. Refer to the chart below, the number right next the element is the beginning age. According to Chinese tradition, a baby is one-year old at the day of birth. Therefore, if adjusted to western custom, the beginning age should be the element-formation-number minus one. For example, if the five-element formation number is 6, the beginning is age is 5, since (6-1=5). Since each major fortune is a period of 10 years, the ending age of a major fortune is the element number + 9. In this case, (5+9) = 14. Thus, the first major fortune starts from the age 5 through the age 14. In addition, the first major fortune is always located in the Life palace.

Assigning Subsequent Major Fortunes

For yang males and yin females, the subsequent major fortunes are sequentially and clockwisely distributed into each of the remaining palaces after the Life palace. For yin males and yang females, the subsequent major fortunes are counter clockwisely distributed into each of the remaining palaces after the Life palace. Each subsequent major fortunes is increased by an increment of 10 from its preceding palace.

Yin and Yang Person

In Polaris astrology's term, a person who was born in a yin year is considered as a yin person, the opposite for a yang person. The yin yang of a year is determined by either the the year stem or the year branch. Year stem and year branch have the same yin yang.

The purpose of determining the yin yang of person here is for determining the direction of rotation of major fortunes only. It is not used for analyzing. Don't be confused by the yin yang of the Four-Pillar Fortunetelling method which mainly uses yin yang and the five element to analyze a person's life.

Direction of Rotation for Major Fortunes
Yang male, Yin Female Clockwise starting from the Life palace
Yin Male, Yang Female Counter clockwise starting from the Life palace
