Minor Fortunes

Minor fortunes represent the fortunes or the happenings that had or will occur to a person during a particular year or age of his or her life. The duration of each minor fortune is one year. The first year of the minor fortune begins at the opposite palace of the grave of the three-companions. I will explain it in more detail in later sections. For now, just refer to the chart below.

The Initial Earth Branch of Minor Fortune

The initial earth branch is the location on the Polaris astrology chart where the first minor fortune begins. The first minor fortune begins at the age of one. However, as mentioned before, according to Chinese tradition, a baby is one-year old at the day of birth. Therefore, if adjusted to western custom, minor fortune begins at the age of zero. Each subsequent minor fortunes are increased by an increment of one from its preceding palace. For male, subsequent minor fortunes are clockwisely distributed into each palace. For female, each minor fortunes are counter clockwisely distributed.
