I misunderstood the scenario, so you are after a job, but not the training.  In that case Officer is the main Yong Shen, and Parent is the secondary Yong Shen.  Officer is explained in #3 --> same conclusion, I'm afraid.

One thing in your previous post: did you mean to say that you received an email on July 13?

The Yong Shen depends on the purpose of the fishing trip, as follows:

- outdoor recreation: Offspring
- selling the fish: Wealth
- competitive sport: Officer

From how you described it, it looks like the first one?

For predicting gender, it's more practical to do it with the current medical technology.  I am now calculating an auspicious cesarean birth date for a client's baby (based on Bazi).  I got the request (including the gender) when the fetus was only 4 months old. 

The exception occurs only in mainland China where gender reveal by doctors is illegal since 1979 because of the one child policy.

H          D          M         Y
Jia      Geng    Ding       Xin
Shen    Xu        You       Wei

Geng produces Ren.
Ren produces Jia.
But with Ding removed, Jia is vulnerable to Xin, isn't it?
Jia is strengthened by Ren, so it's not vulnerable to Xin. 
Can't xin also play part in producing Ren? I remember reading somewhere that Producing cycle takes priority before controlling cycle.
Yes, it also can, but this interaction is less important.
How come Ding is removed but Ren is still there?
Ren is solid, while Ding is unstable.

It's just that the classic text says: "also using You metal Brother yao as Medicine also"
The classical text is sometimes written like that.  The writer expects that the reader understands Brother/Siblings line is the Favorable God that strengthens the Useful God, or in Tientai's terminology the partner for the Useful God.

Eldon, an elegant way to do it is to write 吉時 "auspicious hour" for both birth and date times, like this example:

Fourth line Xu is originally Ji Shen.  And this is an example where Ji Shen (Annoying God) turns helpful instead. 

Yi and Wei both can be seen as representing Wealth, because Wei is Wealth Tomb
I said above that one side is auspicious, but on another side is inauspicious.  So, it's just a so-so development of wealth.  What goes up can easily decline in this LP, and conversely what you see as going down may be recovered.

BTW, what's the practical application of knowing the hours ?  An alternative method is using a divination.
Let me rephrase this better...

Wanting to record your parents' birth hour properly for record keeping --> is this your main goal?  Or is there a practical destiny question that you would like to know?

Sacrar, I had mentioned this:
1) Fourth Offspring line is broken by the Month, and overcome by the Day.  Since Offspring represents doctor/medicine --> inauspicious

Hi Astroman,

I understand that traditionally Gui is used to mediate between the abundant Metal (Geng's) with Yi.   It's called mediating useful god 通關用神.

However... I'm afraid that's not the way it works in Mangpai.   The intention of the chart is to control Wei, and Wei swaps image with Yi.  Gui produces or strengthens Yi, so Gui is not auspicious. 

On the other hand, Gui swaps image with Chou, so it's time for Chou to control Wei.  This is auspicious.

Liu Yao Case Studies / Re: Claim for refund
« on: July 07, 2020, 11:39:49 PM »
However, on the 22nd I contacted the seller and he refused to refund my money, he told me that he was not responsible for the loss. I contacted customer service and they're not responsible either.
The hidden line Wu (Offspring) may not come out but in my opinion it can still be interpreted.  Offspring 子孫 can represent the customer service because their function is to help people with issues (Offspring typically overcomes Officer).   They exist within the Month, giving them some authority.  But Offspring is hidden, so Sacrar can pretty much ignore that the customer service really exists for him, unable to help.   

Yes, Offspring is not the main Yong Shen, so this is just an additional interpretation.

Here is my take after having a look again at the hexagram:
1 Zi Parent is the book that you originally ordered, aptly located on the first line. 
2 This book is broken by the Month and overcome by Day.  This one is lost.
3 Hai Parent is the replacement that the Others line offers. 
4 Self is Chen Wealth changing to Hai Parent.  You spent Chen money but you get Hai book instead. 
5 Hai combines with Yin Siblings.  Siblings is seen as the Ji Shen (it overcomes Wealth in general).  This means you (Self) make a loss with the replacement item.

It's best to see no. 4 and 5 together.

The relationship between my parents is good. My mom's character is keeps everything in her heart. Every time my father wants to be angry, she will not participate him. She chose to be silent and not talk until my father's anger subsided. So my father never had a direct confrontation 对抗 with my mom. They married in 1973.
From this feedback, we can rule out Wei hour.  The LP years are below (regardless of the Hour Pillar):

LP Ji You (March 1963-1973)
LP Geng Xu (March 1973-1983)

Married in 1973? Okay then, based on that, I think she was married in the early part of 1973.  Starting to live together can also be marriage. 
Certainly one day before Dumpling Festival. Tomorrow is Duan Wu Festival 端午节, and today my father was born.
As for your father, I have checked my Chinese calendar.  The 3 pillars that you gave is correct.  The search for the hour - as I said - is extremely difficult.

BTW, what's the practical application of knowing the hours ?  An alternative method is using a divination.

Hi Eldon,

With some effort, we can try to verify the mother's birth hour.
How is the relationship between father and mother, and how many years is their marriage?

As for the father's birth hour, "between morning and noon" is only your opinion.  Wrapping dumplings could have been done in the afternoon or even evening before dinner?  Or even late evening to prepare food for the next day?

For these cases like your father and mother, an aspect of destiny can be analyzed using divination methods, such as Liu Yao.
