Four Pillars of Destiny View
On 3.06 p.m., Steven Kazmierczak walked into the stage of the lecture's hall of Northern Illinois University, boring several weapons, including a 12-gauge shotgun, a 9-mm Glock pistol and two other pistols. Then he start to fire the class which he was first thought to be a joker. Five students were killed. The world is again shocked by this St. Valentine's Day Massacre.
I want to point out from the view of Four Pillars of Destiny of Steven Kazmierczak. Before I go through, there're several basic ideas that you must familiar with (eventhough you don't need it ... unless you're interested in this Chinese metaphysics)
Four Pillars of Destiny is consists of four pillars which constructed from the year, month, day, and hour when somebody is born. Such information is like a blueprint of the five components (Wood - Fire - Earth - Metal - Water) in a person's life, and can reveal person's personality, career direction, marriage, money, health and ups and downs cycle in life.
I will review again (you can look further at Four-Pillars-Of-Destiny hubpages) regarding the five components. There're 2 cycle: Cycle of Production (Wood starts up Fire, Fire burns into Earth dust, Earth slowly developing Metal inside, Metal keeps longer will become Water rusty, and Water keeps the Wood alive) and Cycle of Destruction (Wood drain the energy from the Earth, the Earth blocked the Water inside, Water put off the Fire, Fire melts the Metal, and Metal chops the Wood).
The birth data of Year, Month, Day and Hour are presented in 8 Chinese characters, with 2 characters, Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branches for each information as you see in below Four Pillars of Destiny of Steven Kazmierczak. I assume that he was born in 24 August 2008 at around 3-5 p.m. I will explain a bit below why I pick this number 24 and the hour around 3-5 p.m. I generate this Four Pillars by using the tools from Master Joey Yap (thanks Master)
As you can see through the Four Pillars, the Heavenly Stem has 2 polarity (Yang and Yin) and the Earthly Branches has also 2 polarity (Yang and Yin),
Here is the basic analysis. Steven Kazmierczak is a Yin Earth (as I assume from the date of birth is 24th August 1980). We can compare Yin Earth person as the garden earth. They can be graceful, moderate, and intellectual. They're slim and a bit flexible.
Now we focus on the entire system of the Four Pillars. The Year Pillar represent the grandparents, the Month Pillar represent the parents, the Day Pillar represent himself and his future wife, the Hour Pillar represent his future children.
As you can see that the Heavenly Stem of the Month Pillar is Yang Wood which conquer the self Yin Earth which means Steven is under influenced by his father. The Earthly Branches of the Month Pillar is Yang Metal which is produced by the self Yin Earth, so it means that Steven is very supportive to his mother.
This is the Four Pillars when the St. Valentine Day's Massacre occured.
The next step is to determine whether the Self element of the Day Pillar is weak or strong. In this Steven's case, he is a weak Earth, because there's a lot of Metal inside his Pillars which weaken the self Earth.
There's other thing that you should know a bit, is that there's a harmony combination between the Heavenly Stem, clash between the Heavenly Stem, harmony combination between the Earthly Branches, clash between the Earthly Branches, penalty, symbolic star which I can't cover full in here.
Steven Kazmierczak was in luck pillar of Yin Fire on Yin Water Pig, which is in clash with the Earthly Branches Day Pillar Snake Fire (Clash between Water and Fire). The Yin Fire is the only resource of his Earth, so his Day Pillar is collapse and he is in danger. Another problem coming up is when the Yang Wood on the Heavenly Stem of the Valentine Day combine with the self element Yin Earth of his Day Pillar (combine sometimes means taken away).
He is a Yin Earth and Metal is his Intelligence or Creativity (Earth produce Metal). We can see there is a lot of Metal elements in his Four Pillars. Intelligence can also mean rebellious or aggressive. So Steven Kazmierczak is aggresive with weak Fire resource to control the Metal (Cycle of Destruction). That is why I pick 24th August 1980 as his birth date and the hour is in between 3-5 p.m.
Another danger that is showing up in his Four Pillars is Fire Penalty (Yang Wood Tiger + Yin Fire Snake + Yang Metal Monkey) - combo between the Four Pillars with the Four Pillar on Valentine Day (14th February 2008). There are 5 Fire Penalty which provoked the gun shot tragedy of NIU Massacre. 5 Fire Penalty can also means the number of weapons that Steven Kazmierczak was carrying.
