The use of the Shen palace

Translated from here.

In addition to Ming and the other 11 palaces, there is Shen Gong. Shen is an auxiliary palace. The Shen palace will always overlap with either Ming, Happiness and Virtue, Career, Travel, Wealth, or Spouse.

The impact of Shen in the horoscope can be divided into three main influences:

1) Revision [修正 = to revise, correct, amend]

To find out about one's fate, the Ming palace is primarily scrutinised. It will be operative from start to finish. It is one's pre-natal fate. But Shen will gradually become more and more important, and at the age of 35 onwards it will be in full effect.

For example - If a person's Ming palace is weak, but Shen is strong, the individual will experience toil and unfavourable circumstances during his or her younger years [the first half of life], but with the arrival of the impact of a vigorous Shen palace [the second half], gradually the native will enter the most pleasant and enjoyable stage of his or her life.

Conversely, should Ming be strong and Shen weak, first the person will meet with magnificence and abundance, afterwards experiencing a decline and the coming of feebleness.

2) Increase [加強 = to strengthen, augment, enhance, reinforce, intensify]

The position of Shen in the horoscope will mean an increase in good and bad luck in the matters of that area of life.

For example - Should the Shen palace share palace with the Spouse palace, the auspicious and unfavourable regarding that area of life, i.e. love, romance, and relationships, etc., will become more pronounced compared to the other palaces in the chart.

3) Contrast [對比 = to contrast, balance; a contrast, comparison; a ratio]

Ming and Shen will be important throughout one's life. But it is also possible to use these two palaces concerning stuff to do with everyday living. During the course of an undertaking, endeavour, venture, activity, there are frequently changes in the way one goes about conducting the matter. The Ming palace is then a representative of the first half of the process, Shen the latter half.

For example - An individual has Wu Qu and Tan Lang in Ming, also seeing Di Kong. Zi Wei and Qi Sha are in Shen. During the first half of the undertaking, the native is... [?], and hesitant and indecisive. But during the second half, the person becomes persistent and will be of the ability to implement stuff and carrying out things.

However, should the case be the other way around, there will be the instance of 虎頭蛇尾 hǔ​tóu​shé​wěi = a strong start, but a weak finish; a tiger's head, but a snake's tail; to start off with a bang, but end up with a whimper; to begin with a flourish, but peter out towards the end.

身宫 Shen Gong

Translated from here.

The Shen palace represents one's post-natal fortune/destiny. With great effort and striving hard, frequently one is able to transform and remold one's fate. Shen Gong is a supplementary palace to Ming.

Shen will invariably pair with either Ming, Spouse, Wealth, Travel, Career, or Happiness and Virtue.

Shen with Ming

When Shen shares palace with Ming, the direction of the individual's fate will be the most forthright and clear-cut. In behaviour and conduct the person is intensely subjective. He or she does not easily receive and accept external influences. Regarding merits and demerits, contributions and errors, the native has for the most part to take sole responsibility. In the instance of Shen pairing with Ming, it is rather not easy altering fate.

Shen with Spouse

The individual is very much so partial to love, romance, and relationships. The person emphasises home life. He or she has a sense of responsibility towards the family and the household. The native will be very influenced by marriage and the spouse.

Shen with Wealth

The person emphasises wealth and money. In behaviour and action, money making will be the objective. The individual is easily influenced by economic stuff.

Shen with Travel

The native is easily affected by changes and circumstances in the environment and his or her surroundings. There are easily changes in the person's circumstances and environment at work or where he or she lives. The individual with Shen together with Travel does frequently take to travelling; to go out, to go away, to take a trip.

Shen with Career

The person has lots of professional ambition and is seriously devoted to his or her work. In behaviour and action seeking professional success will be the goal; a lifetime of pursuing accomplishments and results in one's career. The individual is easily influenced by the stuff happening at work or in his or her vocation. The person feels strongly about fame and position, official rank.

Shen with Happiness and Virtue

The native is rather fond of what's enjoyable and brings pleasure. The individual tends towards a happy and prosperous life; to live comfortably. He or she pays attention to living quality. The person is seemingly a bit short of being eager to make progress, to keep forging ahead, to be energetic, enterprising, and proactive. The native is somewhat selfish and self-absorbed. The individual will easily be influenced by 祖德 zǔdé = ancestral virtue, ethics, kindness, favour; 因果 yīn​guǒ = karma, preordained fate; and 精神生活 jīng​shén​shēng​huó = spiritual or moral life. However, the person does not necessarily take to being extravagant and squandering money.

      Po Jun is akin to 戰將 zhànjiàng = a war/battle general/commander/leader. But in this capacity Qi Sha is slightly better because the Qi Sha commander is able to receive instructions and assignments from the emperor and is just and honourable; without tricks. When Po Jun is to receive instructions from the emperor, there is contention; to be out of tune with each other, to be incompatible. Therefore... [?].

The person of this star has resolution, boldness, courage, and daring. The native prefers taking care of every single thing personally; to see or attend to everything oneself.

The person is seriously selfish. He or she easily falls out with other people.

In the occasion of Po Jun it is not appropriate trying to preserve the status quo, the accomplishments of previous generations.

In Ming or Shen, the native's state of mind and mood are never settled; to turn something over indefinitely. The individual tends toward taking risks and chances, and trials and tribulations.

There is weak predestined affinity with family and close relatives. Regarding spouse and children, the fate or chance that brings people together is hollow and fruitless. There is... [?].

The native is irascible, short-tempered, fiery, hot-headed, impulsive, and daring and valiant. He or she takes chances and risks. Po Jun brings about undulations, fluctuations, rises and falls.

Lu Cun and Hua Lu are able to bring Po Jun under control. If there isn't the presence of a Lu star, Po Jun becomes a representative of war of attrition.

Apart from Tai Yin and Tan Lang, Po Jun allows for a beautiful woman, a big-eyed belle. However, Po Jun is still unfavourable what with her relationships to family and close relatives.

The palace position of Po Jun in the horoscope indicates an area of life that is broken, damaged, destroyed. The palace of Po Jun becomes extremely unstable.

Preserving the accomplishments of previous generations, being content with the status quo, is not appropriate. Tian Luo [Chen palace] and Di Wang [Xu palace] are optimal for Po Jun.

The individual of this star takes to consuming extremely much. He or she... [?].

The person is not fond of... [?] with other people. There is a bit of the mysterious, secret and confidential about the native of this star. In fact, the individual is actually very emotional and sentimental. Therefore, it may happen often that the person scares or intimidates his or her spouse/significant other.

Consequently, as regards love, romance, and relationships, it is important that the native tempers him- or herself and learns self-control. Otherwise... [?].
