In Chinese Birth Reading, there is a short-cut to find out your Nobleman (benefactor) 天乙贵人 through Bazi Deity Formula (八字神煞). Solely using this method is not encouraged.
Most will welcome a benefactor’s help in life’s critical junctions. This Bazi Deity Formula 八字神煞 is simple. Just find out your Day Master and follow the chart beside and you have identify your nobleman 天乙贵人.
What is doubtful about this BDF is because it does not require analysis of your Bazi Day Master strength, structural configuration, qualitative and quantitative analysis of each element among others to determine your life’s benefactor.
Another debatable issue is it’s flexibility. You can use either your Day or Year of birth stem to determine and voilà your “nobleman” is found.
Today there are still some who uses it for it’s simplicity. However from clients that came to me for a 2nd opinion (due to some problems) the determination of bazi nobleman are usually wrong.
Well you don’t have to believe me. Just download any free “bazi app” to find out your Day or Year stem. Check among your friends and verify whether the bazi nobleman did help you at any point of your life. In case you are not sure how to read the chart. Take an example of Jia Wood 甲 Day Master (grey color column), his or her nobleman are ox 丑 and goat 未.
Why BDF method is oversimplified
First of all Day Master’s strength was not defined and not having this we are unable to process his lucky elements 日主 用神 喜神. Secondly birth balancing element 调候 the birth month is not inside the equation. Third birth structural classification 八字格局 was not obtained. Lastly the ambiguity of using either the “Year” or “Day” stem is interchangeable. For some other 八字神煞 formulas one can even used the Month of Birth.
Technically speaking most masters do not practice this Deity formula anymore because there are more than 300 神煞 and some conflict with each other.
Having say that there are a few like Wealth 禄神 Yang Ren 阳刃, study 文昌 can be useful in the right context.
