Chinese Astrology Birth Chart - The Palace of the Destiny

The Palace of the Destiny is not a part of the Chinese Four Pillars (Ba-Zi) astrology. We cannot see it in the Chinese Ba-Zi birth chart. It's brought from a different Chinse fortune-telling system. The Stem and Branch inside the Palace of the Destiny is the starting point of the Yearly Minor Cycle. We will show you how to find the Stem and Branch of the Palace of the Destiny below.

About the Palace of the Destiny

Not too many Chinese fortune tellers use the stem and branch of Palace of the Destiny to cast people's fortune. But many Chinese astrology books say stem and branch of Palace of the Destiny is a very important factor in the birth chart reading. Almost none of the astrology books provide a good example to explain how important it is.

Some fortune tellers use Palace of the Destiny information, only when they cannot find the answer from Eight-Characters Birth Chart. For example, the strength of the Day Master is interpreted wrong from Eight-Characters Birth Chart when verifying people's past. So they use Palace of the Destiny to adjust the strength of the Day Master.

However, there is meaningful rule for Day Master applying on the cycle prediction. When the yearly cycle has the Stem Attraction Relationship and Branch Fighting Relationship or Branch Hurting Relationships together, the person will have very bad luck, specially in health, which might end of the person's life.

Therefore, if we study the health issue, then we can consider the stem-branch relationships between the Palace of Destiny and birth chart or cycles.

Actually, the Palace of the Destiny has its own cycle. The stem and branch of the cycle are changed every year, which is like a yearly cycle. It's called the Minor Cycle or Small Cycle. But only a very few people use this information to predict the cycle events.

For example, a person was born on April 6, 1960 at noon in China time zone. The birth chart is Metal Rat Year, Metal Dragon Month, Wooden Rat day. The center-point (Grain Rains) of Dragon month in 1960 is on April 20. So the April 6 is the third of Month of Destiny Palace. From the Horse hour cell, you can find the Destiny Palace is Sheep.

If a person was born on April 23, 1960 at noon in China time zone, then April 23 is the fourth of Month of Destiny. From the Horse hour cell, you can find the Destiny Palace is Horse.
