If you're wondering what Lian Zhen star in Zi Wei Dou Shu astrology means for your wealth and career, this post will share insights, key points sample charts and placing.
Lian Zhen is a Northern Star of Relationships. This Star symbolizes a "system" opportunist, and is associated with a rainbow or Peach Blossom in ZWDS. Lian Zhen governs or has mastery over the career and administration aspects of the Palace it's in. Looking at the health and wellness aspects, Lian Zhen represents the blood and your nervous system.
Lian Zhen is an unpredictable Yin Fire Star and quite a contrarian. When using Lian Zhen for wealth acquisition, there is no step-by-step plan to follow as Lian Zhen is not a star that respects order and rules. It is more of an intuitive nature and wants to lead and make its own rules.
If you have Lian Zhen in your Life Palace, be more strategic and form decisions based on research, studies, advice of the collective or trusted advisors. Lian Zhen should not act solely on gut or emotions or when feelings are too high, and one cannot think clearly.
How do you interpret Zi Wei Dou Shu Stars?
There are two leading schools of ZWDS astrology, the San He School and the Si Hua School. Depending on which system you follow or choose to use both, the flying stars lineage of Zi Wei Dou Shu advocates a more practical, a bit easier, and effective approach to Stars' interpretation by identifying and emphasizing the critical points of each Star. There are 5 main points of ZWDS star interpretation:
- Location of the Star, which Palace does it reside
- Yin and Yang elemental energies
- The 5 elements
- What the Star governs and influences
- What are the meaning and foremost characteristics of the Star
Each Star has a different meaning under different situations and environments (timing, place of birth, education, etc.). Remembering the personality or critical points of each Star allows more flexibility and creativity in assessment and birth chart reading.
According to Chinese metaphysics and philosophies, the five elements Wu-Xing Theory is the basic foundation of all universal phenomena. The five elements also show up in everything from the Early Heaven Bagua to the Later Heaven Bagua, from the Ten Heavenly Stems and Twelve Earthly Branches to the 12 Palaces on your chart, and even the Zi Wei Dou Shu Stars.

5. Wealth Palace
Lian Zhen in the wealth palace is more instinctual in financial management. It is mainly dependent on the fact that Wu Qu is at the Life Palace to attract wealth affinity. If Lian Zhen sits in the Shen or Yin Palaces on your chart, you have the potential to gain wealth via aggressive competitions, which may lead to trouble.
6. Health Palace

12. Parents Palace
Difficult to understand and moody parents. Lian Zhen is harmful to parents no matter how the interpalatial dynamics work. The formation ends up having Lian Zhen influencing Parents Palace will cause problems to parents, especially for the father. The presence of harmful stars means that parents are physically, emotionally, or spiritually not present or supportive of the native. Positive Stars can somewhat bridge the relationship gap with the parents; however, the fated relationship is bleak.
What happens when it meets other Zi Wei Dou Shu Stars?
Also called the love-hate Star, Lian Zhen is contrarian and ferocious. It is the "five yellow" Star, one of the 9 stars in flying star feng shui. Its Mandarin name is 廉贞星, pronounced as Lian Zhen Xing. Lian means honest or incorruptible, Zhen means chaste, Xing means Star. But more commonly known as 五黄 (Wu Wang), literally translated as five yellow.

How do you figure out that it is afflicted?
Affliction in Zi Wei Dou Shu stars means when situations, placements or formations bring out the worst of Lian Zhen. You cannot label or categorize stars are good or bad. Many factors lead to an assessment of a Zi Wei Dou Shu chart interpretation. It could be that the Star's brightness levels are dimmed, which is a San He system of reading. Hua Ji transformers are present, or a Si Hua fly-out is happening. Maybe there are negative stars in the same Palace.
Understanding your good fortune identified, digging through the self palace, wealth palace, career palace (1-5-9), favorable stars, sha qi based on negative stars, and applying the traditional Chinese principles of ZWDS astrology clearly help you gain clarity
Afflicted Lian Zhen star usually brings about problems tied to money. You must take care when that happens because it brings forth many adverse effects like embezzlement, corruption, wealth loss due to affairs, and under-handed dealings. Lian Zhen has a jealous and envious side with solid desires and can be vengeful or hold grudges.
Lian Zhen has a positive side to it before turning nasty and ugly. Because this Star has a "loyal" or "staunch supporter" part to it as in "integrity," he would genuinely go all out to help others. With unlimited, boundless love and without a target or aim, the Lian Zhen can follow passion and desires to no end or boundary. If Lian Zhen loves someone deeply, he would entrap himself and also trap the other party. This is the "imprisonment" part that Lian Zhen encompasses, giving it its namesake quality.
