Learn about Four Pillars of Destiny - Vol.2 12 Fortunes and Your Energy Cycle
[What is the 'Twelve Fortunes'?]
In Four Pillars of Destiny, the theory of "12 fortunes" is used to read your energy flow. There are 12 stages of fortune. These 12 stages come from life stages. Each stage has meaning that corresponds to the certain event in life as below.
CHOSEI : birth / infant period
TAI : embryo period
YOU : fetus period
MOKUYOKU : the first bath / adolescent period
KANTAI : adult growth period
KENROKU : building his/her own house / prime period
TEIOU : life peek
SUI : elderly period
BYOU : maturing / sickness period
SHI : death / need to take a rest
BO : grave / rest period
ZETSU : floating the soul to the universe period
If you are at the stage of negative meaning, it is just symbolizing, not necessarily means hard luck.
*Example: "CHOSEI sign" means "BIRTH" and "SHI sign" means "DEATH". "CHOSEI sign" does not always mean good, and "SHI sign" does not always mean bad, though. "SHI sign" is an indication of beginning of something new.
[In Your Pillars of Destiny]
Twelve fortune signs can be applied into each Pillar of Destiny: year, day, month, and time. The sign in Year Pillar can be applying into the age of 50's to 65 years old energy strength of the individual. In Month Pillar into 30s to 40s, in Day Pillar into 10s to 20s, in Time pillar into the age over 65. These signs are fixed and permanent.
[Energy Flow Cycle]
Aside from the fixed signs of twelve fortunes, every person has 3 types of transitional stages: daily, monthly, and yearly.
*Example 1: on Dec 8 2012, if your natal sign is "Kinoe" (Jikkan sign), your daily fortune stage is TEIOU, monthly MOKUYOKU, and yearly SUI.
*Example 2: on Dec 8 2012, if your natal sign is "Kinoto" (Jikkan sign), your daily fortune stage is KENROKU, monthly BYOU, and yearly KANTAI.
Your daily fortune moves to next stage every day, your monthly fortune moves to the next stage every month, and your yearly fortune moves to the next stage every February (not January, because of the Old Style calendar).
These stages are continuously circulating, where everyone is living in the own cycles. So it is very complicated circles of living creatures that has been existing for more than thousands of years. The daily/monthly/yearly fortune or energy flow goes round in every 12 days/months/years.
*Example1: [Daily] if you are "KANTAI stage" on Dec 1 2012, you will be back in the same stage on Dec 13 2012 (12 days later)
.*Example2: [Monthly] if you are "KANTAI stage" in Dec 2012, you will be back in the same stage in Dec 2013 (12 months later).
*Example3: [Yearly] if you are "KANTAI stage" in 2012, you will be back in the same stage in 2024 (12 years later).
For those who are in Kinoe, Hinoe, Tsuchinoe, Kanoe, and Mizunoe sign (Jikkan sign), their cycles go forward. For the others (Kinoto, Hinoto, Tsuchinoto, Kanoto, and Mizunoto sign), their cycles go backward.
*Example1: if you have Kinoe sign, your daily/monthly/yearly cycle goes forward: 1.CHOSEI -> 2.MOKUYOKU -> ... -> 11.TAI -> 12.YOU -> 1.CHOSEI -> ...
*Example2: if you have Kinoto sign, your daily/monthly/yearly cycle goes backward: 1.CHOSEI -> 12.YOU -> 11.TAI -> ... -> 2.MOKUYOKU -> 1.CHOSEI -> ...
