relationship indicates the presence of behavior or relationships that are
damaging in nature to the person. For instance, a person may drink and
become an alcoholic. A Destruction relationship appearing in a Bazi chart
also indicates the likelihood of a person feeling cornered or pressured.
For instance, a person may be forced to do something he/she do not want to
do but have no choice in the matter, e.g., firing a good friend because your
boss ordered you to. This type of Destruction relationship can also result
in a person finding themselves in tight situations in which they are
ill-equipped to deal with but have no choice but to face up to.
The Earthly Branches that have a Destruction relationship with each other MUST be next to each other in the Bazi chart in order to be considered a Destruction. If it skips a pillar, it is not considered a Destruction.
A person can also meet a Destruction relationship when the year pillar or the luck pillar interacts with the Earthly Branches in the Bazi chart. You must, however, pay attention which Palace is involved: Hour (children); Spouse (Day); Parents (Month); or Grandparents (Year).
In the example above, there is a Destruction relationship between the Month (Parents) Earthly Branch of the person's Bazi and the Luck Pillar between the ages of 26-35. It is clear that the Destruction is related to this person's parents. This Destruction will likely to occur during this person's childhood period because the Earthly Branch with a Destruction relationship appeared in the Month pillar.
Note: When a Destruction relationship appear in the Month or Year pillar, the event will occur during the person's childhood. If it appear between the Month and Day, the problem will occur during the person's youth or middle age. If the Destruction relationship appear between the Day and Hour Earthly Branches, the problem will occur during the person's old age.
Each type of Destruction relationship carries a unique meaning or implication and usually results in a very specific kind of situation or scenario. See table below for a more detailed information:
