III “The principal difficulty in your case….lay in the fact there being too much evidence. What was vital was overlaid and hidden by what was irrelevant.” “The Naval Treaty” from “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes” Was he a strong or weak day master? He was born on a 庚 Geng metal day in the 巳 Snake month. The 巳 Snake month represented summer when fire was strong. His metal was not born in season.

Inside the 申 Monkey day, there was 庚 Geng metal. There was also some more庚 Geng metal in the 巳 Snake month. His metal had roots in both the 申 Monkey day and the 巳 Snake month. There was also earth in the 未Goat year to produce his metal. The metal may not have been born in season but due to the structure of the chart, the metal could be considered as fairly strong.

When the sickness became worse and the wife died, he was even more grief stricken. After that, he married for a second time, to a woman named Jean Leckie whom he had been friendly with during his wife’s lifetime. If a person did not enjoy a happy marriage, he would not have grieved when the wife became sick, and then passed away. If the experiences from the first marriage had been bitter, it was likely that the person might be more wary of re-marrying. Therefore, we could reasonably conclude that he enjoyed two happy marriages. Was it possible to deduce this from the chart? To a male metal day master, the wife was represented by wood because the metal controlled the wood. There was no wood in his 申 Monkey day or 巳 Snake month. These pillars represented the ages when he got married
