Have you ever wondered why a regular shop with poor business,

when taken over by another owner, it became prosperous even though the new owner did nothing to the shop? Do you know why bad luck befalls after moving into new house? Why is this so?

The reason is there is no support from either one of the elements: Heaven-Earth-Man (天时, 地利, 人和)

Heaven Earth Man (天时, 地利, 人和)

In Sun Zi art of war, it was stated: “天时、地利、人和,三者不得,虽胜有殃”. This means, if there’s no support from Heaven, Earth and Man, even if you win the war, there will be calamity.

Heaven (天时)

天时literally means Timely. In the astrology point of view, a person will benefit when all stars aligned. In the Hour family of Qi Men Dun Jia (时家奇门遁甲), we basically choose the good Qi Men Dun Jia time to execute an action. For example, for shop front, it will be opening ceremony.

Earth (地利)

地利 is literally means geography or landscape. This could be a house, shop front of a business or office space. The surrounding landscape will be taken into consideration.

Man (人和)

人和 means human blending. It is the blending of human into the environment. In Qi Men Dun Jia, we use a person’s birth date and time to plot a Qi Men Dun Jia chart. It is important that a person is at the right place, the right time and doing the right thing.

All three components fit nicely into each other to form a complete harmonious energy. This is where we achieve the balance of Yin and Yang with these three components working together.

So, if any one of the component is not good, then the entire energy is lopsided and hence breaking the balance of Yin and Yang. For example, you can have a good Fengshui place and good bazi but you didn’t choose a good time to move in to the new place, you only have Man and Earth aspect but lack the Heaven aspect.

Likewise, if you choose a place that doesn’t match your bazi, even though the place has the best Fengshui landscape and good timing is chosen to move in, you will not benefit from it.
