Again, we see another problem of the earth storage. This chart became vulnerable in the xin-chou LP as xin countered the 2 yi's causing them to fall into the storage of wei. As a weak yi DM, moving from ren-yin LP to xin-chou LP was very bad.
In 2011, his sister who was represented by the yi in the month stem got countered first and passed away from illness. Self stars also represent siblings. Since this is a weak yi DM, the wood self stars are positive. He was very close to his sister and her death was a big blow to him.
Why was 2013 bad for him?
1. This is a weak yi DM and as a general rule his Useful God are the resource water stars. In 2013, gui protruded and got combined away by wu earth and transformed into negative fire stars, supported by the si earthly branches. As always, the disappearance of the Useful God is bad.
2. There are 2 sets of si-chou that successfully pulled in the rooster 'you' with the help of the protruding xin in this xin-chou LP. This increased the energies of the negative metal stars which rule the lungs.
The "pulling in" concept of the 3 combo and the seasonal combo is an advanced concept and I have seen a few cases of successes and failures because of it.
