In order to understand the nuances of reading a Paht Chee chart, you must master your knowledge of the Chinese Astrological Zodiac Wheel, as this will provide the key to unlocking many secrets of your chart!
A skillful Paht Chee reader possesses a solid grasp of how each of the 12 zodiac animal signs interact with each other and is fully aware of all the various special relationships between the twelve signs. Knowing how these relationships bond together to create special chi within a chart is the key to helping you activate chi that is inherent in your destiny! One such relationship is the “Zodiac Allies.”
The Zodiac Allies
There are four groups of zodiac allies or affinities, each group comprising three animal signs whose chi always nurtures each other. When all three of these animals in any grouping appear in the earthly branches a paht chee chart it always brings hidden elements to a chart to either strengthen the chart or add a new dimension of analysis in terms of personality or relationships with others. Here they are:
- The Competitors: Comprised of the Rat, Dragon and Monkey. Check their position on the Astrological Wheel - 1, 5, 9. They form the Triangle Affinity of Competitors and when these three animals appear in the earthly branches the hidden element of WATER is created.
- The Intellectuals: The Ox, Snake and Rooster make up this group. Note their position on the Astrological Wheel - 2, 6,10 each sitting four animals away from each other. They form the Triangle of Intellectuals. When these three animals appear in the earthly branches, the hidden element of METAL is created.
- The Independents: These are the Tiger, Horse and the Dog positioned on the Astrological Wheel as 3, 7, 11 and creating the Affinity Triangle of Independents. When these three animals appear in the earthly branches, the hidden element of FIRE is created.
- The Diplomats: The Rabbit, Sheep and Boar make up this group. Note their positions on the Astrological Wheel (4, 8,12) and also sitting four animals away from each other. Together they make up the Triangle Affinity of Diplomats and when these three animals appear in the earthly branches the hidden element of WOOD is created!
There are many other important zodiac relationships such as “Secret Friends” and “Seasonal Friends” that also combine to create hidden elements.
