Chinese Astrology Four Pillars of Destiny Bazi Luck Pillars are also called Big Luck Pillars or Decade Pillars. It is because each Chinese Astrology Four Pillars of Destiny Bazi luck pillar controls or influences a period of 10 years of luck in the chart. However, the starting age for the first Luck Pillar is not counted from 1 to 10, then 11 to 20. There is a formula for working out the starting age for the first luck pillar. So for the first Luck Pillar starting age can be 1, 2, 3….up to age of 11.

For now just remember that the Chinese Astrology Four Pillars of Destiny Bazi Luck Pillars start from the Month Pillar of the Natal Chart. Depends on the gender and the birth year of a person, the birth year Heavenly Stem is either Yin or Yang, it decides the Luck Pillars go forward (clockwise) or backward (anti-clockwise).

Luck Pillars Construction Using the Month Pillar as the starting point:

Going forward (clockwise) means the first Luck Pillar is the NEXT month pillar in the “Ten Thousand Years Calendar” of the birth year. The second Luck pillar is the NEXT NEXT month pillar.

Going backward (anti-clockwise) means the first Luck Pillar is the PREVIOUS month pillar in the “Ten Thousand Years Calendar” of the birth year. The second Luck Pillar is the PREVIOUS PREVIOUS month pillar.

Luck pillars going forward or backward

The formula for the Luck Pillars to go forward (clockwise) or backward (anti-clockwise) are:

1. The Yang Male Yin Female (+Male –Female) the Luck Pillars go forward (clockwise).
2. The Yang Female Yin Male(+female –Male) the Luck Pillars go backward (anti-clockwise).

Each Luck Pillar controls 10 years of luck. In general practice, 8 Luck Pillars will be constructed for any given natal chart. As 10 years by 8 Luck Pillars = total of 80 years. Then plus the few years prior to starting of the first Luck Pillar, we have 80 odd years of luck in total. That is well enough for an average person’s life expectancy.

Let look at the example above. The Month Pillar in the Natal Chart is Jia Monkey. The birth year is Yi wood. Yi is Yin.
For a female natal chart, it is Yin Female. The NEXT month pillar (Yi Rooster) will be the first luck pillar. The NEXT NEXT month pillar (Bing Dog) will be the second luck pillar and so on…

For a male natal chart, it is Yin Male. The PREVIOUS month pillar (Gui Goat) will be the first luck pillar. The PREVIOUS PREVIOUS month pillar (Ren Horse) will be the second pillar and so on…
