Do you know that when reading a Zi Wei Dou Shu (ZWDS) chart, it is possible to get a quick reading just by looking at the position of the life palace on the chart?
If life palace is at
1. Yin(Tiger), Shen(Monkey), Si(Snake) or Hai(Pig)
Chances are the person is very active and is very determined and aggressive in the pursue of his dreams. This is because Yin Shen Si Hai are the four 'growth' or 'horse' area and the individual simply cannot sit still. However, it will be wrong to say that he/she does not think before carrying out any action. In fact, people with such chart prefer jobs that are easier but make more money in the process.
2. Chen(Dragon), Xu(Dog), Chou(Cow) or Wei(Goat)
Chen Xu Chou Wei are the four graveyards which mean that they have the capability to 'store' matters. Hence, individual with such chart are very hardworking and down to earth. They are responsible and very determined in their life.
3. Zi(Rat), Wu(Horse), Mao(Rabbit) or You(Rooster)
Zi Wu Mao You are the four blossom flowers. Individuals are more carefree and joyous. However, they are more emotional and enjoy freedom. They are driven in their quest for monetary rewards, hence, they are very objective in their life.
Thereafter, the first step towards interpreting the ZWDS chart is to look at the Life Palace (or Ming Gong in anglicised Chinese) on what stars they house and the Earthly Branch which governs the Palace. The earthly branch that governs the palace gives an indication of the strength of the stars in that palace.
