Ten Gods

正官 Direct Officer

DO is the element that controls the DM with the opposite polarity. When DO appears in the natal chart in a good proportion, it will provide an honourable, honest, independent, reasonable, reliable, disciplined, straight-shooter, organized but authoritative DM. When DO is too strong or too weak, the DM will appear more rigid, inflexible, poor negotiator, fearful, nervous, timid, indecisive, lacking initiative, doesn’t command much respect from those around him/her.

A DM with strong DO, name it revealed and rooted, shows the capacity to work in politics and diplomatic fields, someone who follows the rules. But unless your chart only has DO, probably you have to take all others Ten Gods into account when reading a chart. Generally, characteristics traits are a mix of several elements building specific personality.

In terms of “favouritism” 7K/DO are the trickiest Ten Gods. They will switch between the two possibilities and the key to find out which fulfil the conditions lies on the resource elements, if they are revealed in a natal chart. This means that for a weak DM, there must be DR/IR revealed to protect the DM and for strong DM it should not happen (because it is not necessary more enhancement for the unfavourable DR/IR) in order to 7K/DO be favourable. But life is dynamic and changes will occur throughout the time when DR/IR appears or are combined away by other elements the scenario will change too.

Good and bad companies for the DO. I think that everybody who is fond of Bazi should know about the relationship between HO-DO. It is easy to find information about it. Indeed, this is not a good sign. When they appear together in a natal chart and are close to each other the effect is more evident. HO literally means Hurting Officer and Officer is the Direct Officer. From that we can conclude that they shouldn’t appear together or near in order to not clash each other. Actually, HO denotes a rebellious character, people who bend the rules and DO always follows the rules. Together, they will cause a lack of respect attitude playing against the rules and the outcome will not be good to the DM.

In terms of people DO represents husband for female and son for male. When DO appear in the AP and combines or clashes with the day pillar, the chances of a lady encountering her husband are high. If this DO is favourable or the outcome of the combinations is good then the result is even better. But if there are strong HO/EG in the chart they will clash with DO and the relationship will be challenging. It is the same situation for males when we are talking about children. If you are expecting a child, be sure that there are no HO/EG around for the next ten months at least.

From the quality of this DO we can understand the relationship between husband and wife or father and son. If your DO is healthy, strong and well protected, it means that your relationship with your husband will be good. Fathers can enjoy yielding children. On the other hand, if DO is favourable to you then you will get support from your husband/children.

When DO appears in the annual or monthly pillar, it might bring changes, good or bad, like job promotion or problems with authority. It will depend on the relationships between all the elements in the chart and the LP/AP. In some cases it will be necessarily include month and day for a wide perspective.

  1. Hi, what if DO is favourable but weak?
    And also The DO is inside DE (death&emptiness) branch.
    How will the relationship with the spous
    e be like? Will it be bad?

  2. In the situation where xin metal and direct officer (bing) at the stem combine it produces water which the day master likes.In this case what is the use of direct officer to xin metal day master?

    1. DO refers to the boss or a daughter for a male DM. In this case it combines with the DM meaning a good relationship with your daughter or your boss. Beside this, in terms of elements, Bing the Sun can let the Xin Jewel shine. Very auspicious!

  3. In the case were xin metal and direct officer (Bing) combine,they produce water which xin likes,so in this case what is the meaning of this direct officer to xin metal,authority or rebelliousness.Like in my profile;28 April 2001 at 3pm.Thank you.

  4. Hi Master,I wanted to know if 7 killing,hurting officer,eating god, and direct officer were my lucky element .Thank you.

  5. Hi master,i wanted to ask whether if death and emptiness star (DE) were in my day and hour pillars,what effect would it impact on those pillars?My profile; 28 april,2001,by 3pm.Thank you.

  6. Hi master,I wanted to know whether my hurting officer controls my direct officer in my chart.birth info,April 28 ,2001 at 3pm.thanks.

    1. Bing fire at the end of Spring reaching summer is stronger than Ren water. There will be a fierce fight between them and when they reappear at the changing pillars, Bing will have some breakthrough over Ren but in an advanced point of view, they need each other, the ocean will reflect and magnify the sunlight, the sun will warm up the cold water to produce wood. So, for a Xin metal DM, HO-DO may not be too bad.

  7. Master,

    Can an abusive/ unhealthy marriage be inferred from one’s Bazi? My friend sought a Bazi reading early this year while she was undergoing terrible times in her marriage but was told that she has a good marriage that was why she decided to stay.

    However, the incident repeated itself one week ago and she’s now confused as to whether she should finally walk away.

    Appreciate your insights on this Master.

    1. You need to plot her husband Bazi chart and find if there are Friend stars (F/RW). If yes, if there are also Power stars (7K/DO). If not, then chances of this man jinxes his wife is higher.
      Further more, your friend chart has a Uncivilized Punishment (more)

  8. There is one F star and one 7K star, both appearing on the stems. What is this implication in this case?

    1. In this case chances of the Uncivilized Punishment carry a strong influence on her life is higher. This punishment that is triggered by Zi of 2020 also involved DO (husband, boss, authority, marriage,…) and her DR (health, confort level, quality of life). Further more she is going through Xin Si LP where Si also form a partly Ungratefull Punishment and Harm the month branch. The problem was already there waiting to happen.

  9. Hi, I’ve been enjoying your blog for a while now. I’m curious about the quality of DO in my chart. I’m male. My DOB is 7 Oct 1991.
    My bazi chart:
    Jia Geng Ding Xin
    Shen Xu You Wei

    Also, i’m curious about the influence of xu (fire storage) and wei (wood storage) to the chart.

    I’d really appreciate it if you can enlighten me on this bazi case.

    1. Hi Ryan,
      Ding fire surrounded by metal and isn’t in season with roots at storage and resources far away, can only be poor to average quality. Xu is combined away by You so Ding only has roots at Wei. Since Ding is revealed, when clashes hit Wei can relieve Ding.
