Different Transformations from Different Schools

Before the revised edition, there were feedbacks from some readers of the first edition of “The Empyrean Matrix” that there are differences in the transformations between the Ke Ming Lu An formation in the Geng Transformation versus that of the one in table. The entire book has since been normalized to one style in the revised edition, which is based on the transformation from the 紫微斗數全集 (Zi Wei Dou Shu Complete Volumes) style. However, one thing to note is that it doesn’t mean that the Ke Ming Lu An’s Geng Transformation was wrong, it is actually the type of transformation from the 紫微斗數全書 (Zi Wei Dou Shu Complete Book). This two books are cross-referenced alot during the writing of “The Empyrean Matrix”….

Also, there are many times I have heard of questions many times from ZWDS enthusiasts on why some books commit errors in getting transformation to happen for Tian Fu and Tian Xiang, two stars which are popularly known to be “transformation free”? These are actually not errors. All of these are due to differences in transformations from different schools.

There are many schools under the two main umbrellas of San He and Si Hua. And some of the most notable differences lie actually in the transformations from the Heavenly Stems in Wu, Geng and Ren. The most common transformation used by most ZWDS practitioners is that for Wu Stem: Tan Lang Hua Lu, Tai Yin Hua Quan, Zuo Fu Hua Ke, Tian Ji Hua Ji, for the Geng Stem: Tai Yang Hua Lu, Wu Qu Hua Quan, Tai Yin Hua Ke, Tian Tong Hua Ji, and for the Ren Stem: Tian Liang Hua Lu, Zi Wei Hua Quan, Zuo Fu Hua Ke, Wu Qu Hua Ji. These are the standard transformations from the 紫微斗數全集 (Zi Wei Dou Shu Complete Volumes).

However in 紫微斗數全書 (Zi Wei Dou Shu Complete Book), the transformation is this Wu Stem: Tan Lang Hua Lu, Tai Yin Hua Quan, Zuo Fu Hua Ke, Tian Ji Hua Ji, for the Geng Stem: Tai Yang Hua Lu, Wu Qu Hua Quan, Tian Tong Hua Ke, Tai Yin Hua Ji, and for the Ren Stem: Tian Liang Hua Lu, Zi Wei Hua Quan, Tian Fu Hua Ke, Wu Qu Hua Ji. Tian Fu is actually set to be able to Hua Ke here according to this version.

More variations are found in 王亭之 (Wang Ting Zhi)’s 中州派 (Zhong Zhou Sect) transformation which is Wu Stem: Tan Lang Hua Lu, Tai Yin Hua Quan, Tai Yang Hua Ke, Tian Ji Hua Ji, for the Geng Stem: Tai Yang Hua Lu, Wu Qu Hua Quan, Tian Fu Hua Ke, Tian Tong Hua Ji, and for the Ren Stem: Tian Liang Hua Lu, Zi Wei Hua Quan, Tian Fu Hua Ke, Wu Qu Hua Ji. Also in the 北派 (Bei Sect), even Tian Xiang can undergo transformation. Its transformations are Wu Stem: Tan Lang Hua Lu, Tai Yin Hua Quan, Zuo Fu Hua Ke, Tian Ji Hua Ji, for the Geng Stem: Tai Yang Hua Lu, Wu Qu Hua Quan, Tian Tong Hua Ke, Tian Xiang Hua Ji, and for the Ren Stem: Tian Liang Hua Lu, Zi Wei Hua Quan, Zuo Fu Hua Ke, Wu Qu Hua Ji.
