Qi Men Calculation

Qi Men Dun Jia 奇門遁甲 is an ancient system that is restricted for use by the Emperor and its imperial astrology advisers. The key strength of Qi Men Dun Jia is to analyze the energy of the current space and time. By placing the person at the most promising point at the right time and direction, one can ultimately get the best results for their goals. It was recorded in the Chinese history that Qi Men Dun Jia, together with Da Liu Ren 大六壬 and Tai Yi Shen Shu 太乙神數 as the highest Three Arts or Three Styles (三式 sān shì) in Chinese Metaphysics.  Based on a very complex calculation of time and space, mapping of energy is presented in a chart consisting of the following:

• 九宫八卦图 (9 Palaces 8 Trigram chart)

• 地盘 Di Pan (Earth Plate)

• 十天干 10 Heavenly Stems

• 八神 Ba Shen (8 God)

• 天盘 Tian Pan (Heaven Plate)

• 人盘 Ren Pan (Human Plate)

• 驿马星(Yì Mǎ) Traveling Horse

• 空 Kōng

There is 540 Yang Structure Chart and 540 Yin Structure chart in Qi Men, making it a total of 1080 Qi Men Dun Jia chart.

Qi Men Schools And Methodologies

There are many schools in QMDJ with different ways of charting. The most popular methods are Zhi Run Fa 置闰法 (Adding Extra Method) and Ca Bu Fa 拆补法 (Splitting and Supplementing Method). The Ju determination uses Zhi Lun 直润 (Imperial Qi Men). Zhi Lun method is arranging the 18 Ju to fit into 365.25 days in a year. We have a problem fitting 64 hexagrams into 60 Jia Zi in ancient times. The 5.625 divisions require extreme precise measurements. Such is the application of Zhi Lun plotting. The same 1080 Ju are usually used for both methods. 



Analyzing a Qi Men chart is based on the hour of analysis. Chinese metaphysics uses one Chinese hour equal to two western hours, thus example 7pm-859pm uses one Qi Men chart. The following Qi Men chart will change in the next 2 hours. Do note that the Year Qi men, Month Qi Men, and Day Qi Men have their own set of information. 

5 Types of Qi Men Chart

  • Yearly Qi Men
  • Monthly Qi Men
  • Daily Qi Men
  • Hourly Qi Men
  • Destiny Qi Men

The annual Qi Men chart can be used to forecast the summary of an event happening in a general year. Some use this to indicate the movement of the economy. A month Qi men chart provides you an insight into the energy affecting events in a particular month. We can also plot the date of birth and time of the Qi Men chart; this gives us insights into another layer of knowledge of the person’s destiny on top of your Bazi chart. The Hourly chart would be the most frequently used as it allows us to forecast current events, possible outcomes, and the various decisions one can make for different purposes.


Ju (Structure)

Qi Men focus on Yin and Yang structure with 9 types of Structure each. There is a total of 540 Yin Structure and 540 Yang Structure, making it a total of 1080 Ju (Structure).

Shi Jia Qi Men 时家奇门

In Bazi or Qi Men, the Day stem usually refers to one self or the “Host”, the hour stem represents the “Guest” or current event. To do a proper Qi Men forecasting, we usually look at the Hour or Day Stem to analyse the outcome. There are various reference point known as Useful god that we can used to analyse the outcome in terms of competition, partnership, health condition, sales or business. 

Death & Emptiness

Having Death & Emptiness or Void indicates reduction of energy or result effect is reduced.

Lead Stem

The Lead Stem is acting like an army camp which is responsible for concealing the Jia Stem which is known as the Emperor, which will always be hidden in any of the nine Palaces. 

Chief Door 直使

The Chief Door location change with the Yin or Yang Structure Hour Pillar and is considered the Door in charge of the Hour Stem.

Lead Star直符

The Lead Star position is based on the position of the Chief Deity.

Season Strength

Season in Qi Men is divided into warm or cold largely due to Yang or Yin structure. It can be used to deduce the strength of the element. An element can gain strength or reduced strength depending on the season. The reading can differs due to the strength.

Unique Battle Formation

Qi Men Dun Jia has many unique formation such as:

  • Bird Falls Into Cave
  • Dragon Turns Its Head
  • Lady Jade Guarding Door
  • Spirits of the Three Wonders
  • Heaven Escape
  • Earth Escape
  • Man Escape
  • Deity Escape,
  • Ghost Escape
  • Dragon Escape
  • Cloud Escape
  • Tiger Escape
  • Wind Escape

Different Qi Men unique formation increases or decreases the strength of its 8 Door, 8 Deities, 9 Stars, 8 Gua Palaces. Each formation allows one to charge Qi Men energy for the manifestation of the outcome one seeks when used in strategy, or understand the information contained when used for divination, eg, weakening of the Geng Metal suggest enemy current vulnerable state. 

Qi Men Dun Jia is a system that is connected to other Chinese Metaphysics studies such as Qi Men Strategy, Qi Men Divination, Qi Men Date Selection, and Qi Men Feng Shui. Qi Men Dun Jia can work on 360 days primarily; this Method of plotting is known as Chai Bu. With another school that adopts the Zhi Lun (self-insertion) method with its history traced to Taiwan, the charts are based on 365 days. Thus the Qi Men Dun Jia chart is plotted slightly differently. Master Kevin Foong teaches Qi Men Dun Jia Strategy and Qi Men Divination.

How Do You Read A Qi Men Dun Jia Chart?

Qi Men is meant to be a divination system. There is various consideration when it comes to analyzing a Qi Men chart. The most important aspect is to identify the right useful god when it comes to the subject of the question asked. The day pillar can be representative of the asker and the hour pillar can give you some insights of the outcome. These are some of the Qi Men useful indicators below. 

  • The Open Door 開 when questions are related to one’s career
  • When asked about investment and capital risk, the Growth Door 生 and Wu Earth 戊 .
  • The Fear Door 驚 is one is seeking clarity on their legal issues.
  • The 符 CEO Star when the question has to do with the highest management
  • Geng Metal 庚 and Yi Wood 乙 when asked about relationship matters
  • The Rest Door 休 if we are seeking benefactors and mentors

The Strength and Cycle of Qi Men Door, Star, Deity and Stems

We would want to know the current strength of each indicator we are looking at. Any eight doors in Qi Men can enter the graveyard, which suggests the weakness of the door energy or it can be strengthen entirely at different timing. This will give us a different reading, even if it is an auspicious door. Next, we will have to understand death and emptiness, the current strength status of the door, stars, deity and stem, including punishment status. Every change of its indicator strength will paint a different intepretation, and therefore your strategy can change.

Qi Men Strategy is meant to analyze good Qi Men battle formation energy and use this energy to our advantage. An example would be that you are heading to the court today and would like the judge’s decision to be in your favor. One can analyze unique Qi Men based on the three nobles, eight doors, eight deities, and the nine stars. Use the proper formation, have the back of your head tap onto that energy direction for 5-15 minutes, after that, proceed with the task ahead. One can be surprised for some reason; the outcome is what you were seeking. This is the power of Qi Men Dun Jia using current time-space. 

Qi Men Divination on the other hand helps one to get the answer.

Qi Men Case Study

Actual Qi Men client scenario #1: The homeowner suspects something is not right with their current helper and have been losing some small item in the household. One can open the Qi Men Dun Jia chart at the current date and time when the asker seeks to know what’s going on. The chart read that recent ongoing theft is happening within the household and that a third-party thief is assisting the helper. The thief accomplice was located in the Northeast direction, which apparently was another helper staying 3 units away from their current house. Both of the thieves was caught with one of the helpers passing out the item to another helper. Qi Men Dun Jia divination allows one to understand the current situation and receive an answer for the best outcome to a particular event or incident.

Actual Qi Men client scenario #2: A listed company director knew someone working in their company was sabotaging the sales process, and they have been losing potential projects during government tender, but unable to find out the actual culprit. The Qi Men chart reveals the real enemy is someone working in the operations department, born in the year of the Snake. He then proceeds to engage a private investigator to obtain evidence of the suspect in that particular department of 2 individuals born in the year of the Snake. It was later revealed one of them had been selling project information to their competitors, so they always managed to tender in at the ‘right price .
