Q: Hi Karin!
It was all going so swimmingly (if you can swim through something glacierly slow!), but I stuck totally on the Ming Gong Branch
7 November 1966, 22:11
Month branch: Xu = 11
Hour branch: Hai = 12
Isn’t after JieQi, so don’t add 1
32 – (11 + 12) = 9 = Shen
You have Wei?
Looks like there is an add 1 – but I can’t figure out why?
A: Hi there! Thank you for the question. We need add 1 for dates falling after ZhongQi. No need to add anything for dates falling before ZhongQi. 🙂
