The BAZI chart of each year offers us the wisdom on what each coming year will touch upon our lives. I am not talking about how the Tiger year in 2022 will bring you luck or possible setbacks. What I am referring to is the characteristics of the pairing of the year's elements and their unique behaviour that is consistent to the study of destiny analysis.
The way a BAZI chart is constructed is by erecting the pairing of the year, month, day and hour of the start of the year itself. In the case of the coming Year of the Water Tiger（壬寅）, this pairing of the Yang Water over Yang Wood offers us an image of what the external factors which governs the nature of that year and its impact on us all.
Just like the Year of the Metal Ox （辛丑）in 2021, I had emphasised on the world going through repetition, which is the character of the Yin Earth in the Metal Ox year and so, with the pandemic raging all around the world, we will continue to look at cycles of infections, control measures and short recovery, only to fall back to an infectious state again. The Metal element, on the other hand, is indicative of small arms and physical harm to human lives. Even in Singapore, where safety is taken for granted, an innocent life was taken in an axe incident in the supposed safest of all environment, a school. What about this thing relating to the clashes between a certain said zodiac and soem with certain signs in their own charts ? Some research was done on the Chinese New Year car crash that took five young lives and I found that all five in effect had some form of a clash relationship in their respective charts. On a positive note, we can hope that there will come a breakthrough in research for a common cure by year's end, because the Metal element hidden in the ground shows itself only after trials and much drama.
Moving ahead, the Year of the Water Tiger will officially arrive at around 4.55 in the morning hours of 4th February 2022 thus yielding us the chart as shown here.
In colour codings, you will notice the dominant element is Wood (green) which is also tagged at 7K (Seven Killings Star) a prevailing energy that can best be described as conflicting, violent, competitive and careless. Conversely, it can also be said that the world will go through a period of development, learning and compassion as exhibited by the Yang Wood element.
The next prominent element is Water, the Yang Water representing huge amount and evident exixtence. Yang Water can be described as the water in the oceans, active water in huge rivers and raging waves. Water is wealth and this could lead to a state of greed and exploitation of financial returns over common goals.
This pairing of the Yang Water over the Yang Wood as seen in the year pillar is an image of huge wooden structures or tree over an axpanse of water. There can be two scenarios. If the water is calm in nature, the result is a sentimental reflection of a peaceful tree reflecting upon a clear state of calm. If the water is violent, the wood will float in all directions that the water bring them, usually without destinations and come into devastation when met with shore or the element Earth.
Yang Earth is rooted and hidden which is symbolic of 'Friends' in this chart. It says alot about common ideals and goals bound together in trust. However, being hidden means a lack of expressions. Here, cooperation is willing but the efforts and trust are lacking. Leadership is missing and it takes a whole year before one emerges with strong convictions to lead the world out of this pandemic. Earth is weak in the season and thus, banding together will not be common occurences.
The missing element is Metal which is the vital link to results. Without Metal, there is no control, nor is there order, systems, sequence, discipline and methodologies. Results in the year are pale in comparisons.
As we move into 2022, the state of preparedness includes being alert and nimble. It is not expected to be an easy year but it does come with its opportunities. As long as you remain open, there are plenty of financial benefits left untapped. A certain amount of calculated risks and bravery favour the successful ones. Be careful when it comes to collaboration and invitations in partnerships as there are still remnants of those who are so good at convincing you to part with your money.
