Tan Lang (The Covetous Wolf) Star in Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology)
Tan Lang is in the Northern group of stars, and is related to peach blossoms, greed, materialism, and metaphysics.
Pros: Fortune, Longevity, metaphysics, and peach blossom
Cons: Desire, greed, gambling, prostitution
Element: Yang Wood with Yin Water
Life/Self Palace: Tan Lang is the first peach blossom star. The native is easily attractive to the opposite sex. Tan Lang is not a wealth star, but due to the peach blossom nature, the native may find wealth in a flirtatious manner and/or setting. The native has great potential to indulge in his/her desires, and cravings (romance, wine, gambling, sex, etc). Love relationships can be tumultuous. They are also attentive, and a smooth talker in most settings.
On the positive side, the native is smart, learned, multi-talented, and capable to seek assistance from the opposite sex easily. The native is eloquent, likeable in social settings, and an opportunist.
On the other hand, the native is stubborn, greedy, fickle, seek sensual pursuits, and materialistic. They easily get bored, and seek the new in all affairs. When Po Jun resides in the Wealth Palace, the native encounters risky wealth pursuits.
On one note: Tan Lang entails two elements (Wood and Water). If the Wood element is activated (favored), the native leans towards the metaphysical and spiritual preacher; and if it is activated by the Water element, it leans towards the lustful characteristics.
Wealth Palace: Tan Lang is not a wealth star, but has some potential to wealth by utilizing the characteristics of Tan Lang.
Career Palace: Tan Lang in the Career Palace may be suitable in industries related to entertainment, luxury or high end products, or metaphysics.
Tan Lang has the potential for Windfall, if paired with Wu Qu, but a loss if it meets Wen Chang or Wen Qu. Tan Lang Hua Lu entails fortune, peach blossoms, and good luck. When Tan Lang Hua Ji, it entails misfortune, scandals, and loss.
Tan Lang is not suitable in the Mental/Karma Palace. This results in a toilsome life pursuits and affects the Wealth Palace.
Tan Lang is not suitable in the Property Palace because it entails the desire to own properties beyond the means of the native -which results in a loss.
Qi Sha Star in Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology)
Qi Sha (aka Seven Killings Star) is in the Southern group of stars, and is related to fights, aggressiveness, and warfare.
Pros: Ambitious, brave, confident, and chivalry
Cons: Solitary, merciless, impulsive, temperamental, and tumultuous
Element: Yin Metal
Life/Self Palace: The fighter nature of Qi Sha makes the native impulsive, and explosive in matters of dealing (inc. personal and business relationships). The native is unyielding, firm, and seek righteousness. Furthermore, the native is clever, challenging, and smart in debates. If undisturbed, the native is well-mannered, and upright. The native is recommended to act cautiously in all affairs, and to calm its pursuits and undertakings. Pursuing musical, and spiritual understandings maybe helpful to minimize the aggressive nature of Qi Sha.
Wealth Palace: Qi Sha in the Wealth Palace is not ideal, and relates to struggle, and an explosive nature. Qi Sha is not a Wealth Star, but has the potential to a sudden growth in wealth (as windfall) but is wasted, thereafter.
Career Palace: Qi Sha is suitable to be in the armed forces, and if not, the native is not settle, and with little returns.
Qi Sha native will have Tan Lang in the Wealth Palace. This is slightly better if Tan Lang Hua Lu, but even so, the potential to Wealth is uncertain.
Qi Sha in the Mental and Property Palaces are not suitable due to its ferocity. Furthermore, if Qi Sha meets Zi Wei or Wu Qu, it brings out the potential to pursue wealth, however, if it meets with Lian Zhen, it is not auspicious (bloodshed).
Wu Qu Star in Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology)
The most frequently liked Star in Zi Wei Dou Shu, Wu Qu is in the Northern group of stars, and is related to finance, money, precious metal.
Pros: Leadership ability, Wealth
Cons: Solitary, Mercenary
Element: Yin Metal
Life/Self Palace: If Wu Qu resides in the Life/Self Palace, the individual can be considered as a mercenary. As Lian Zhen sits in the Wealth Palace, the individual constantly pursue of money, wealth, and/or speculative investments. This also entails gathering money in whatever means, whether appropriate or not. The native, however, can be lonely (esp. female) unless paired with another star in the Life/Self Palace. Pairing with a stable star (such as Tian Xiang) is more calm and positive than pairing with an aggressive star such as Tan Lang- thus highly materialistic.
Wealth Palace: Wu Qu is best found in the Wealth Palace with Hua Lu. In this formation, the Wealth Palace, Wu Qu Star and Hua Lu Catalyst forms the trio, and Zi Wei Star is at the Life/Self Palace. This formation is usually found with high profile business people, high executive CEO ranks position, where enormous amount of money can be earned.
Career Palace: Wu Qu in the Career Palace denotes working in the field of finance, investments, banking, or precious metal tradings. Wu Qu in Career is not as auspicious as in the Wealth Palace, but is better than most other stars since Wu Qu is a finance star- working in a related finance Career brings good fortune.
If Wu Qu meets Tian Fu or Tian Xiang, the native can gather vast amount of wealth, and is highly fortunate. If Wu Qu meets Tan Lang, it is highly mercenary. However, they are better off at a later age.
If Wu Qu Star meets Po Jun, or Qi Sha, it relates to events such as a ‘roller-coaster’ (high and low) in gathering wealth, investing into a business, investments, re-investments, and/or ‘money comes and money goes’. However, further judgement can be analyzed after consulting the entire life chart to determine events, both positive and negative. If Wu Qu meets Qi Sha, windfall money or a sudden pour of money is possible.
Wu Qu Star does transform, it is susceptible to all Catalysts (transformation) such as Hua Lu, Hua Quan, Hua Ke, and Hua Ji, plus a ‘clash’ depending on the format of the destiny chart. Therefore, the Ten-Years (Decade) Luck needs to be analyzed to form positive, or negative events.
If your Wealth Palace is not strong as shown in your Zi Wei Dou Shu Life Destiny Chart, find where is the Wu Qu Star. This allows you a second chance to gather wealth, and money if you know how. Wu Qu is one of the Wealth Star, and its placement is important in analyzing money potential, when and how.
Luck in Zi Wei Dou Shu
Luck is something people commonly hope to be on their side for life endeavors. However, is luck really something that happens ‘out of the blue’ or is luck something you need to work for?
In the New Age genre, the “Law of Attraction” has been a big hit in suggesting luck creation through multiple means- such as listening or chanting a mantra, meditation, or focusing your mind into believing that you will win the lottery. However, do these practices really work? The answer is that I really don’t know because like I have mentioned in other posts, the Universe influences, and is much larger than the micro-living organism on earth.
Others have also suggested that luck do not exist, but by your own creation -similar to ‘walk the talk’. An example would be that if you are not persistent in looking for a job, the job will not just land on your lap suddenly. However, I beg to differ, but slightly.
From a Zi Wei Dou Shu standpoint, and in Chinese Meta-Physics, luck do play a role in our lives. It is highly regarded as the second dimension to life pursuits, and Feng Shui as the third dimensional support.
When luck is on the rise: If a person’s chart revealed as riding in a golden-luck period, he/she will do everything that is right that leads to a successful path, or he/she will land onto a role/job that is promising with or without any initial effort of their own. However, there is one pointer here. If you are lucky in regards to wealth generation, you need to lose something as well -such as your health, time with family, and so forth- “you cannot have the pie and eat it too”.
When luck is riding low: If you are still working, stay under the radar and be patient. If you are job hunting, you need to first have an action such as your own freewill in looking for a job, or wealth. It can be applying to various job openings, or simply talking to people. I am not suggesting that a person should do nothing when luck is bad. You should still seek and apply even if luck period is low. Worst yet, and if you can afford, take time off and renew your skills, or career line. Your Zi Wei Dou Shu chart does reveal a few career choices specifically for you, as deemed suitable, and stable in career progression. Do you know which career line is suitable to you?
From my years of consultation with clients, they were some that has been really lucky in landing a good career with very high earnings with no initial effort when luck is on the rise. They just have the upper-hand.
As an example, I have once analyzed a client’s chart where career and wealth luck is on the rise. Due to this reason, a Zi Wei Feng Shui was done to boost the event to happen quicker, and ensure that it will happen.
However, the client has no clue where to apply for a job or in which industry. I suggested that he will be working soon, and will generate good income from a specific year onward till the next five years. As the luck period begins in his Zi Wei Dou Shu chart, he suddenly received a call from his friend suggesting him to join a start-up company. The client just went with his friend and began work there. After a few years working there, the client made it big, and his achievements were enormous. Remember, he did not apply for any job position, nor made any inquiry. It was his friend, whom suddenly approached him of an offer. Yes, this is really luck in action from his chart analysis. As quoted, “if it is yours, it will be yours, and if it is not, it will never be”.
Therefore, in a Zi Wei Dou Shu chart, we can analyzed if a person is riding on good luck, or riding on a bad luck period. Luck (Yun) is shown in the post-born period of a life destiny chart. Whether the person created the luck, or if the luck just happens to fall on his lap can be revealed in the ZWDS chart.
As a result, I further believe that if good luck comes to you as revealed in your ZWDS chart, it comes as a storm. Are you ready to reap the rewards?
Tian Xiang Star in Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology)
The Tian Xiang Star is in the Southern group of stars, and is related to the Heavenly Visage.
Pros: Leadership ability, Conservative, Stable
Cons: Procrastinate, Vain, a weak wealth star
Element: Yang Water
Life/Self Palace: If Tian Xiang is alone at the Life Palace, the native has the potential to make money, but only through career and hard work. The native is calculative in expenditures, and does not spend money unnecessary. However, the native is honest, loyal, and is stubborn to uphold integrity, and values. Justice and fairness is important to the native, and he/she will fight for the unlucky victims. As Tian Xiang is a mirroring star, the native may have two personalities, two minds, and two of most things in life.
Wealth Palace: The native can save money through conservative means if Tian Fu resides in the Wealth Palace. Therefore, savings can be achieved but the native is also prone to spending lavishly from time to time. The native is not an aggressive investor into speculative means. As a result, wealth is accumulated through savings, slowly but surely. Therefore, if Tian Xiang is in the Life Palace, and Tian Fu is at the Wealth Palace, the native can be wealthy through savings, and long term investments. Wealth can also be achieved through overseas career, and foreign investments.
Career Palace: In the Career Palace, Tian Xiang is suitable in a stable and conservative role/position. The native can be suited to be in judiciary, political or educational offices. The native will have to work hard, and enjoys a stable career where wealth can be attained. As a mirroring star, two careers are possible as well, or duplication of career line is possible to generate wealth- similar to chain or franchising.
If Tian Xiang, Tian Fu, Zi Wei, and Wu Qu appears in the internal palaces, the native is usually blessed with enormous wealth, and life achievements.
If Tian Xiang resides in the Mental/Fortune Palace, the native lacks wealth capacity but holds a high moral character. However, the native appears to be content in life endeavors -poor or not, the native finds happiness in its own right. This is likely so because Po Jun is in the Wealth Palace.
Tain Xiang Star does not transform, it is susceptible to a ‘clash’ depending on the format of the destiny chart. Therefore, the Ten-Years (Decade) Luck needs to be analyzed to form positive, or negative events.

Tian Fu Star in Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology)
The Tian Fu Star is the leader of the Southern group of stars, and is related to the Vault and Storage.
Pros: Leadership ability, Wealth, Fortune, Prosperity
Cons: May transformed into an empty vault; An empty Wealth Palace if found in Life Palace
Element: Yang Earth
Life/Self Palace: If Tian Fu is accompanied by another leader stars, such as Zi Wei, or Wu Qu. With the pairings of stars, these individuals are fortunate in wealth generation, and are common among high profile business people or multi-millionaires. If Tian Fu resides alone in the Life Palace, the individual will need to work harder for their money, due to an Empty Wealth Palace. They may lack financial luck, and make bad investment decisions from time-to-time.
Tian Fu is a fortunate star in Zi Wei Dou Shu, and is not affected by any Catalysts. Tian Fu native is usually conservative, and they can be calculative (or sometimes miserly due to the ‘storage’ characteristic, or being ‘self-guarding’). However, generally, Tian Fu native is usually fortunate in life endeavors.
Wealth Palace: Tian Fu residing in the Wealth Palace is usually good, and best to be paired with Wu Qu (resulting in the vault being filled with gold, and abundance). However, if Tian Fu is alone, the native is highly likely conservative in investments, capable of savings from income earned -slowly but surely. As such, this format may not be suitable for a business native because in here, money is earned and saved in storage.
Career Palace: In the Career Palace, Tian Fu is suitable in a stable and conservative role/position, such as in a financial institution. They can hold onto leadership or supervisory positions, thereby earning a higher income.
Tian Fu is often auspicious if found in any of the twelve palaces, but the Friends Palace. This does not mean that the Friends are ‘bad’, it simply could indicate that Friends (or the Social Network) are usually more successful than the native him/herself.
Tian Fu is highly auspicious in the Property Palace. This signifies abundance, assets, and prosperity. It is best to meet Wu Qu where enormous wealth can be achieved.
Since Tian Fu Star does not transform, it is susceptible to a ‘clash’ depending on the format of the destiny chart. Therefore, the Ten-Years (Decade) Luck needs to be analyzed to form positive, or negative events.
