BaZi: SMTH 论食神 Discuss Food God

Food


God


食神者,日干所生顺数第三位,乃甲食丙、乙食丁之例。
Food God, is engendered by Day Stem, the third place counted from the DM, like Jia eats Bing, Yi eats Ding. 

甲生丙为泄气,丙生戊为甲偏财,偏财是天禄自然之财,不劳己之心力,享见成福禄。
Jia engenders Bing as exhausting Qi, and Bing engenders Wu as Jia's Indirect Wealth, Indirect Wealth is wealth that is given by heaven naturally, one does not need to work hard for this wealth and one can enjoy this as wealth and blessings.

甲丙有父子之道,如子旺相,生起财禄以奉其父母,岂不安享?
Jia abd Bing has the Tao of father and son, if the son is prosperous or ministerial, it can engender Wealth to give to its parents, don't the parents enjoy (the wealth) peacefully?

又甲见庚为煞,见戊为财,其食神丙火能制伏庚煞,使不得克伤甲木,能生戊财,使为甲木所用。
Also Jia sees Geng as Devil, Wu as Wealth, Food God can control and restrain Geng Devil so it cannot harm Jia wood, it can engender Wu earth as Wealth to be used by Jia wood.

凡命遇财煞之地,食神旺相,煞被食制,不敢为祸,财被食生,充裕不竭,故食神一名寿星,一名爵星,良有以也。
When a chart LP goes to places of Wealth and Devil, with prosperous Food, Devil is restrained and it cannot become disaster, Wealth is engendered by Food, abundant and inexhaustible, thus Food God is also named as 'Longevity Star' or 'Noble Star' (Noble like Duke and Marquis), that is good to have.

此格要日主食神俱生旺,无冲破,主人财厚食丰,福量宽弘,肥体肥大,优游自足,有子息,有寿考。
This structure has to have DM and Food equally strong, without clash or breakage, denotes having abundant money and food, magnanimous fortune, fat, carefree and self-sufficient, having son(s) and daugther-in-law(s), long life.

四柱见财食在岁月上,祖父荫业丰隆,在日时,妻男获福,怕母子俱衰绝,两皆无成。故经云:"食神宜食生食旺,不可食衰食绝。
If the pillars see Wealth or Food on the Year or Month pillar, denotes having protection and Wealth from the parents or ancestors, if it is on Day or Hour, wife and husband reap blessings, but it is fears that both mother and son are Waning or Extinct, this will not give anything. Thus the classics says: Food God favors to be Sheng (as in ChangSheng) or Wang (as in DiWang), it must not be Shuai(as in Shuai) or Jue (extinct) 

"又云:"食神生旺,胜似财官"是也。
Also the classics says: Food God Sheng and Wang, is as glorious as Wealth and Officer. 

食神大忌偏印为倒食,主为人有始无终,容貌欹邪,身材琐小,心性局促,多愁无成。
Food God greatly disfavor Indirect Seal as Pouring Food, denotes a person who begins but never finishes, evil looking person, small body,narrow heart and temperament, a lot of worries and no accomplishment.  

假如甲见丙为食,柱中有壬作甲木偏印,克制丙火不能生戊土,不能制庚金,使甲木受制退财,岂不窘乎?
If Jia sees Bing as Food, within the pillars is Ren, which is the Indirect Seal, it counters Bing fire so it cannot engender Wu earth, it cannot control Geng metal, that makes Jia restrained and it's Wealth retreating, is it not in distress?

《元理赋》云:食神制煞,逢枭不贫则夭。
The odes of YuanLi says: Food God countering Devil, meeting Owl, denotes one will be either poor or have a short life.

《一行》云:阳日食神暗合官星,阴日食神暗合正印,官印不要明显,但得食神纯粹,主贵而有禄,富而有寿,食神只宜一位,不宜太多,恐窃本元之气。
YiXing says: Yang DM has Food God obscurely combined with Officer star, Yin DM has Food God obscurely combined with Direct Seal, Officer and Seal must not be clear and prominent (appears in HS), when one gets a pure Food God, it denotes nobility and having fortune, wealthy and live a long life, it is favorable to have only one Food God, too many is not beneficial, for the fear that it can usurp the Qi of the Original Yuan (DM). 

经云:"一木叠逢火位,名为散气之父"是也。
The classics says: One wood repeatedly meeting places of Fire, is called the father of dispersed Qi.
