Bazi Useful Element

How to find your Bazi Useful Element 八字用神

Finding your Bazi (birth profile) beneficial element/s 子平八字 体用 and 格局 用神 is one of the most challenging task in Chinese birth reading.

There are some bazi masters who proudly uses the mobile app to determine the analysis giving the impression of being tech savvy & modern. Don’t get me wrong i use mobile apps too but as a supplementary tool to churn out the birth chart. However for the bazi analysis, you can call me old school, i prefer to use my brain to analyse & determine the final outcome.

Problem about mobile app often it is unable to analyse the intricacies of bazi combination such as 合, 化, 刑, 冲, 害, 特殊格局 because it depends on numerous factors such as month, stem, structure and others. So far i have yet to find one mobile app that gives me 100% accuracy on the final analysis. But using it to come up with the birth chart is great compared with olden days me using my fingers.

Standard calculations to find your bazi useful elements

a. birth structure lucky element 格局用神 (most important)
b. day master 八字体用神
c. season mediator 调候用神

The first 2 methods is complex without bazi foundation. It will take easily 5 -10 years of bazi learning in order to achieve any advanced breakthrough not the superficial stuff like lucky colour etc. Some give up along the way due to difficulties, while others came up with the wrong analysis.

Take method (a) as an example it would required at least 5 years to really understand  格局用神 and it’s applications. It is not surprising to find that some masters have not of this term, let alone using it.

Season Mediator 调候用神 a Quick Fix 

Please do not use this method as the final conclusion. This is just a quick fix in the absent of bazi foundation knowledge.

Below utilise method (c) the birth month as season mediator 调候 to cushion birth structure imbalance. E.g. a person born in summer requires water and born in winter requires fire.  

Unless your Birth profile falls under a Non-Standard Birth classification 特别格局 such as 专旺格, 从格 etc, this bazi auspicious element chart could be helpful to you.
