Different forms of wealth money in ZWDS

When it comes to uncovering your personal wealth in astrology, Zi Wei Dou Shu has different forms of wealth and money. It means there are many ways you can explore how financial abundance can show up for you.

The Chinese word for wealth is "Fu 富." The word for fortune is also "Fu 福," but written with different characters. The root characters that form these two words both depict a roof over the field for the family.

The Chinese word for money is "Qian 钱." Its characters mean gold and knives, so people wielding knives and fighting for gold. It's fascinating to dig into the symbolism that forms these words and adds meaning to Chinese Metaphysics.

Many eastern and ancient cultures believe wealth empowers life with protection, nutrition, control and sufficiency. The Chinese metaphysics and beliefs are no different. Money is not wealth, but a medium of exchange of value for the goods and services in the market. I believe wealth gain is more important than the gain of money. Wealth leads to sufficiency and fulfillment. Some may favor material sufficiency over spiritual sufficiency and vice-versa.

Wealth luck or wealth element is often one of the most sought areas that we look into with purple star astrology readings. You can activate your luck period or wealth star on your ZWDS life destiny chart if you can activate your energy with the right timing based on your destiny chart.

Whether you are looking to enhance your life, spouse, relationships, health or illness palaces, understanding the concept of timing and kinds of wealth is essential. The following will serve as a foundation for using a Bazi calculator or plot your destiny chart using Zi Wei star and astrology concepts.

Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches in Chinese Astrology

So let's start with the Chinese concept of timekeeping. It uses the Sexagenary Cycle to define and calculate time in cycles of 60 terms or periods. Each period consists of 2 Characters.

  • The first character represents the term with a cycle of 10 and is called the Tian Gan, which translates to Heavenly Stem.
  • The second character in the Sexagenary Cycle represents a cycle of 12, known as the Di Zhi, which literally translates to Earthly Branch. You can calculate Di Zhi from the 12-year Jupiter Cycle as a reference.

The ancient Chinese created the Heavenly Stems & Earthly Branches concept from the observation of astronomical phenomena. The 10 heavenly stems are the heavenly qi spiraling downwards, repeating in a cycle. The 12 earthly branches represent the qi of our Earth radiating outward. The number 12 represents the dimension of time.

The combination of the 10 Heavenly Stems and 12 Earthly Branches for timekeeping that the ancient Chinese astrologers used created the 60 combinations. These are known as the 60 Jia Zi Gan Zhi, Sexagenary Cycle. Zi Wei Dou Shu chart and Bazi Chart readings use the heavenly stem and earthly branch to identify and forecast many aspects. These can include wealth luck, day master, luck periods, direct and indirect wealth, and times of fortune using the Chinese calendar.

The 10 Heavenly Stems are:

Jia (甲), Yi (乙), Bing (丙), Ding (丁), Wu (戊), Ji (己), Geng (庚), Xin (辛), Ren (壬) and Gui (癸).

The 12 Earthly Branches are:

Zi (子), Chou (丑), Yin (寅), Mao (卯), Chen (辰), Si (巳), Wu (午), Wei (未), Shen (申), You (酉), Xu (戌) and Hai (亥).


Zi-Rat, Chou-Tiger, Yin-Tiger, Chen-Dragon, Si-Snake, Wu-Hose, Wei-Goat, Shen-Monkey, You-Rooster, Xu-Dog, Hai-Pig are the 12 Earthly Branches and the 12 Chinese Zodiac Sign that also considered the keepers of the 2-hour time period calculations on the Chinese Astrology birth chart. The 24-hour day cycle is divided into 2-hour time slots. The process starts at 11 pm, not at midnight 12 am, whether you use any Chinese horoscope or destiny science modality.

  • Zi: 11 pm to 1 am
  • Chou: 1 am to 3 am
  • Yin: 3 am to 5 am
  • Mao: 5 am to 7 am
  • Chen: 7 am to 9 am
  • Si: 9 am to 11 am
  • Wu: 11 am to 1 pm
  • Wei: 1 pm to 3 pm
  • Shen: 3 pm to 5 pm
  • You: 5 pm to 7 pm
  • Xu: 7 pm to 9 pm
  • Hai: 9 pm to 11 pm


Heavenly Stems Jia, Bing, Wu, Geng, Ren belong to Yang polarity.

Earthly Branches Zi, Yin, Chen, Wu, Shen, Xu also belong to Yang polarity. You can associate them all with the meaning of increase, prosperity, and strength.

Heavenly Stems Yi, Ding, Ji, Xin, Gui belong to the Yin polarity.

Earthly Branches Chou, Mao, Si, Wei, You, and Hai also belong to the Yin polarity. These heavenly stems and earthly branches represent decrease, decline, darkness, and reduction, or shrink.

How many various forms of wealth are in ZWDS?

It is not just about having appropriate Zi Wei Dou Shu wealth stars in ideal or respective locations or palaces. There are a lot of other factors that influence wealth in astrology. As a rule of thumb, remember all 14 major stars in the 12 palaces have their own attraction and affinity to wealth and the potential to create fantastic abundance. A splendid Zi Wei Dou Shu Wealth House or Wealth Palace does not necessarily destiny you for riches. It is not even an indicator of wealth, which is ironic.

If the Wealth Palace is seemingly atrocious, it means poor financial management skills. And if you do become wealthy, it may be due to the different interplay of energies during your decade cycles, annual periods, and interpalatial dynamics.

All 14 Major ZWDS stars have different characteristics and affinity towards financial matters. Generally, you divide all the stars into various categories. Lets first talk about the different types of wealth associated with the Zi Wei Dou Shu stars. For example, there is

  • Proper Wealth
  • Side Wealth
  • Windfall Wealth
  • Rob Wealth
  • Waste Wealth, and
  • Kind Wealth

In conventional ZWDS destiny science, you divide the stars into either "proper wealth" versus "side wealth,". They're commonly known as the windfall wealth, which can be misleading to many. Let me share what these 6 various kinds of wealth in astrology mean on a Zi Wei Dou Shu chart.

Actual or Proper Wealth

The actual or proper wealth in ancient Chinese astrology involves the appropriate route of gaining wealth. Suitable ways are clear and straightforward as defined by our human society. For example, through business, job, career, savings, investments, and trading.

Side Wealth

Side wealth involves alternative routes of gaining wealth. It can include gambling, buying lotteries, and even shady businesses or under-the-table work or tasks. It can also mean a sideline pursuit of money that is second from the main route of gaining wealth in a less severe context.

Windfall Wealth

Windfall wealth is often used in the same context as side wealth by many practitioners. However, it actually means "come fast and go fast." I find windfall wealth fascinating as most windfall wealth does not stick, and you eventually lose it. Other crucial aspects are how you are getting the windfall wealth and what are you doing with it? Though the money received via windfall wealth may appear as it comes through the window and goes out the door, there are ways to keep windfall wealth as identified on your ZWDS chart and not lose it all.

Rob Wealth

Rob wealth on your destiny chart means that when a specific star energies affect the Wealth Palace, you lose money, or wealth is damaged. Identifying and having an awareness of the rob wealth structure allows you to manage your losses or mitigate the effects in manageable ways.

Waste Wealth

Waste wealth structure points towards expenditure, a bad attitude towards money, or a spendthrift nature as identified on their ZWDS chart.

Kind Wealth

Kind wealth usually means passive income or rewards or blessings due to virtues rather than an active pursuit of wealth. Many stars may not even fall within the above categories. However, all the 14 major ZWDS stars play an essential role in affecting financial affinity, nature, cash flow, and wealth creation.

Can your luck period in ZWDS be managed or enhanced?

The different ZWDS charts facilitate the flow of Qi through different periods. Yes, we look at the internal and external palaces that exist and coexist in triunion on your chart. You also have to be mindful of the ups and downs of Qi flow during the luck cycles as they are windows and portals of opportunities to create wealth and manifest abundance.

Think of ZWDS charts from the birth chart to the decade cycle chart to the annual charts to have their own electromagnetic fields and configurations. It is the electromagnetic force field, which is harder to change. Hence, you need to understand the timing and the wavelength of your force field. The Si Hua, the four transformers, when added to the reading of your ZWDS charts, can reveal the opportunities to manage or enhance your luck. This means harnessing success and wealth.

In Chinese Metaphysics, the human body has 12 principle energy meridians. These meridians are affected by the 12 Yellow Path (Sun's orbit) zodiacs in the sky, the 12 major stars of the ZWDS plus the Sun, and the Moon (Tai Yang and Tai Yin, respectively).

Using electromagnetic energy

Everything is governed by electromagnetic energy. The beneficial periods on your charts are when all the electromagnetic fields lead to generating good Qi. The troublesome or challenging periods are due to a lack of Chi or negative Qi (Sha Qi) that forces a downward spiral. Can this downward spiral or breakdowns be avoided? The answer is no. However, these breakdowns can be managed. Their energy can also be appropriately diverted to creating breakthroughs that can assist you in resurfacing with more power and positive Qi.

It is harder to change your electromagnetic field. Still, it is possible to change and improve the flow of Chi and aura to optimize your performance and desired outcomes. Understanding these concepts will lead you to find solutions and unfold your success. This is the secret alchemical key to harnessing fate to your advantage, redesigning your destiny, and manifesting abundance.

How can you change your destiny using ZWDS?

ZWDS can analyze and identify your electromagnetic fields (Ci Chang). You can also infer the Yin and Yang polarities of the Qi and the Qi of the five elements as laid out on your birth chart. The sound and favorable periods on your Zi Wei Dou Shu chart are the peaks. The challenging periods are the valleys.

If the amplitude is short, the effects of the magnitude are lesser. Alternatively, if the amplitude of the wavelength is higher, the magnitude impact is more remarkable. The wave pattern shifts towards the higher peak. There will be a shorter valley by getting abundant good Chi. More good Qi leads to attracting balanced electromagnetic waves. They lead to heightened states of luck, creating manifestation opportunities for your aspirations and abundance creation.

Yes, the Life Palace or Self Palace (or Ming Gong) and the Body Palace (also known as Shen Gong) are crucial to understanding whether you follow the Si Hua Lineage or San He Lineage. Or both. There are spiritual aspiration and abundance manifestation guidelines available for every one of us. This is through our individual ZWDS chart, through the ancient hidden secrets of creating abundance, joy, fulfillment, and bliss in our lives.

Though Zi Wei Astrology has some similarities with western astrology for wealth and other life aspects, there are some fundamental differences. ZWDS has 12 Palaces similar to 12 Houses in Western or Vedic Astrology. However, these 12 Palaces in destiny science link with the 12 Earthly Branches. Each palace depicts a different aspect of life, and these palace categories are different from the 12 houses of Western Astrology. You can learn more about the 12 Palaces of Zi Wei Dou Shu to shed light on their meaning.

How is time counted in Zi Wei Dou Shu?

The Four Pillars of Destiny, Ba Zi, utilizes the solar calendar. In contrast, the Purple Star Zi Wei Dou Shu astrology uses the conversion of the solar calendar to the lunar calendar known as the Lunisolar calendar method. This calendar includes both the moon phases and the time of the solar year to track seasonal changes.

The 13th month shows up every 3 years. This method marks the New Moon as the start of the month in ZWDS astrology. And sets the first day of the first month as the start of the new year and 24 seasonal markers, which are gravely under-represented in Si Hua ZWDS methodology.

Can you improve your wealth in astrology with Zi Wei Dou Shu?

The simple answer is yes. Please remember many influences affect reading, analysis, and forecasting in ZWDS astrology. Every chart has good and bad aspects in it. The stars in a palace and the Si Hua flyouts and structures can override the result and help you improve your wealth potential. You can use ZWDS charts as insightful guides for personal growth and redesigning your destiny.
