Let’s talk about 3 Harmony or 3 Combination. This is something we like to see in anyone’s chart because it works like a booster to amp up one particular element in your chart, strongest when it’s all next to each other. Not only does it denote opportunities pouring in from all directions and the chance of forming business partnerships are high, someone recognizes your talents and decides to invest in it. You will also never be short of a helping hand.
Having 2 out of 3 of the elements form a Half-Combination. Opportunities are still there but is still lacking one last component. The moment the last element appears (in Luck Pillar, Annual, Month or silently pushed out), the whole project comes to completion. It works the same for Relationships too, like you’ve just found the last piece of your jigsaw puzzle.
- Tiger-Horse-Dog [Yin-Wu-Xu] forms Fire
- In general this denotes a sudden boost of willpower, a sudden boost of ambition or life purpose, increased passion or a sudden interest in spirituality and enlightenment. The fire element in your chart will be powered up, what this means to you will depend on which 10 Gods it represents in your chart.
- Snake-Rooster-Ox [Si-You-Chou] forms Metal
- In general this denotes a sudden increase of stability. Your views change to be more practical and realistic. You will tend to chase more material-based opportunities in life and will take the necessary actions to achieve it. The metal element in your chart will be powered up, what this means to you will depend on which 10 Gods it represents in your chart.
- Monkey-Rat-Dragon [Shen-Zi-Chen] forms Water
- In general this denotes that you find yourself seeking wisdom. You are suddenly more curious about things and will take the time to acquire certain knowledge. You also find yourself more sensitive to your surroundings and ponder about life’s mysteries. It may or may not make you more emotional. The water element in your chart will be powered up, what this means to you will depend on which 10 Gods it represents in your chart.
- Pig-Rabbit-Goat [Hai-Mao-Wei] forms Wood
- In general this denotes an increased need for growth. You suddenly want to step up your game and acquire anything that will elevate your current status. You will also feel like picking up a new skillset/knowledge, be it artistic or scientific, as long as you feel that it makes you better. The wood element in your chart will be powered up, what this means to you will depend on which 10 Gods it represents in your chart.
A few examples would be:
- DW/IW: Wealth/Money making opportunity increases. Business start ups. For men, meeting their potential girlfriend/wife
- DR/IR: Learning curve increases tremendously. Intuition increase. Money making ventures through knowledge sharing, coaching.
- HO/EG: Money making ventures through speaking, creative pursuits, intellectual properties, selling ideas, increased influential power.
- F/RW: Money making ventures through networking and sharing. New found self. Joint ventures, partnerships.
- DO/7K: Increase status, climbing ranks. Increased authority and execution power. Supply Chain. For ladies meeting your spouse.
There is one catch though, you need to be able to take it. Traditionally this is not so great for “weak” charts because either you don’t even recognize opportunities when you see it or you are unable to cope with stress by nature. The lack of confidence always makes one lose opportunity. This in turn makes the combination “unfavorable” until you decide to suck it up and see it through. So will you?
