Hi Dao, I recommend that she go to court, otherwise she may not get any compensation for the shop (or losing out a lot to him). It's very difficult to come to good terms with his ex- with regard to the property compensation.
Here is some analysis on the case study:
1. Self Line is Chou, while Others Line is Xu. Parent line represents thinking/reason
. They are of the same element (Earth), but being different Branches, their ideas go different path, with each having their own reason.
2. Self Line changes to Chen. Parent line in the Future hexagram also means the indictment
(next step in the case). Since Chen is in Kong Wang, her idea is not to go to the court. Empty Chen clashing Others Xu means she would not like to be associated to him any more.
3. Second Line is Mao Wealth. This line is a hidden movement, so it's able to overcome Self. This means she is in financial or cash flow difficulty
, which is another reason for not wanting to take a legal action. Because going to court needs money, while she is already in need of it right now.
4. However, in Chen month, Kong Wang becomes solidified. She may go to the court. Note also that Chou --> Chen, moving progressively to fight with him.
5. The legal process will end in Xu or Hai month
. We can predict this timing through clash interactions.
6. Others Line changes to Si Officer, which is Kong Wang (empty) and it combines with Siblings Line Shen. This guy thinks he has the right to the shop, like a partner (Sibling Line). However, he cannot provide enough evidence to back up his financial rights ("Officer is empty").
7. Si Officer combines with Shen, and Shen Sibling comes with Xuan Wu (Turtle). This is a sign that he wants to cheat this woman.
8. Fourth Line is Officer+Offspring
. This combination represents the current notary/advocate
. Unlike Si Fire, Wu Fire is not empty, because they are working on the case right now. This Line is Fire, so it wants to produce Self Chou and Others Xu (Earth elements). However, this line is not moving
, so they cannot really help her.
