Q: Hi Karin,
Help! I can’t get to the same answer as the back of the book:
25 January 1996
Year pillar YiHai
You have month pillar JiChou, I am getting DingChou
(#YS, Yi, x 2) + #MB 2 (Chou) – 2 =
2 x 2 + 2 – 2 = 4
4 = Ding????
A. Hi Jessica!
Thanks for your question! For this calculation you need to remember the exception to the formula…in Zi and Chou months do not subtract the 2:
(YS x 2) + #MB =
I hope this helps!
