Qi Men Dun Jia & BaZi Case Study: Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Trial

May 8, 2022

(12th June Update: I got the forecast wrong although I’m glad I got it wrong! I forgot to take into account the multiple counts in the trial and also seasonal effects. Makes for a good learning opportunity here.)

I am currently (and finally) down with Covid as I am writing this. I am so bored at home that I’ve decided to churn out another case study. I’ll be upfront, I don’t really like using churning out posts based on whatever appears in the headlines, but it often makes the best case studies and practice.

I’m just hoping me being a bit under the weather doesn’t affect my interpretation of the chart.

I cannot help but not be interested in the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial right now. Just some useless trivia, I once dated a girl many years ago whom I suspect had a borderline personality disorder, and what I can tell you is that it was hell. Really hot, but not worth it in a thousand lifetimes.

As showcased in some of my previous entries, Qi Men Dun Jia can be used to not just catch whether your spouse is cheating on you but also for lawsuits just to name a few use cases. Some of my clients who are in the unfortunate position of having to fight a lawsuit do come to me to see what is the next best steps to take and it saves them a hell lot more money than what it costs to pay me for a consultation. Some clients are even lawyers fighting lawsuits for clients and just want a bit of an extra edge or have additional input on what is the next best step to take to either win or minimize losses.

The latest Qi Men Dun Jia case study I did can be found in this blog post below and it involves a rather high-profile lawsuit in Singapore sometime back. I don’t think I need to specifically point out which high-profile case this is as it should be obvious, especially for my Singaporean readers.

What Qi Men Dun Jia Says About The Trial

Let’s get right to the question of what might happen and who will likely win.

Here’s the Qi Men Dun Jia chart that came up when forecasting the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial:

Qi Men Dun Jia Chart For Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard

To recap a little on the more straightforward symbols and what they represent in real life:

  • 开门 is the judge.
  • 值符 represents the plaintiff; 天乙 represents the defendant
  • And then there would be symbols representing evidence, lawyers, etc, which I will not go into for now.

I think this lawsuit case study on Qi Men Dun Jia is interesting because, this time, it involves a jury because it’s in the US after all. There is a new variable at play here so it makes things a bit more complex and there’s more to take into account. The jury is often represented by what we call 讼神 or the ‘god that governs lawsuits’, and the consensus is that it’s represented by 驚门 which some will call ‘Gate Of Wonder’ or ‘Gate of Fear’ depending on whether you like Naruto or commercialized practitioners.

Now, here’s what can be seen:

  • The first thing that stands out is that the sector of the plaintiff is 震 Wood on the 卯 (‘mao‘) Branch and the sector of the defendant is 兑 Metal on the 酉 (‘you’) Branch. It’s interesting to me because 卯酉冲 (clash between ‘mao’ and ’you‘ Branch) is most representative of a clash that is severe and physical because Wood and Metal are, well, tangible, unlike Fire or Water. It also means a clash between ‘mao‘ (卯) and ‘you‘ (酉) often has the most tangible manifestations.
  • Now, the sector of the defendant is Metal whereas the sector of the plaintiff is Wood, so applying theory, albeit on a superficial level, actually states Amber Heard will likely win the case although I don’t think you can call her situation a win no matter what happens. What’s interesting to explore is how she will win it because I think most of us would agree that things look favourable for Johnny Depp right now based on how the media is painting the whole trial since it began although I might be wrong as I’m not following the trial closely. I actually get most of my updates from Ozzymanreviews.
  • The symbol representing the judge resides in the same sector representing the plaintiff (Johnny Depp). It’s not that the judge sides plaintiff or is biased but she is definitely open to hearing his side of the story when the whole world was once against him. If it wasn’t a jury system, a sign like this can be very favourable and can be used to one’s advantage.
  • Now, the trial takes place in Virginia and it requires the jury to come to a unanimous decision, meaning all members of the jury need to agree that Amber Heard has defamed Johnny Depp.

Now, the sector representing the jury is 艮 Earth which definitely supports the sector of the defendant (Amber Heard), so this shows the jury sides with her. But does it truly? What’s interesting to note here is that the 艮 sector is where ‘Void Emptiness’ (空亡) is, so it’s quite possible that the decision won’t be unanimous and the support isn’t ‘real’ because Amber Heard can only be deemed to have won if the jury reaches a unanimous decision.

There is a chance that this ends up with a hung jury but only for a while because there will be situations where 空亡 is removed, and this will likely happen in the month of 未 which is in July.

We can all agree that Amber Heard definitely isn’t the good person here but whether she wins or loses the trial is a completely different matter because she’s being sued for defamation, not the quality of her character, so if there is some truth in what she’s saying, or if the jury believes her version of the story, I personally don’t feel it’s a definite win for Johnny Depp.

Perhaps that’s what the Qi Men Dun Jia chart is trying to say. Well, I might be wrong and I hope I am.

Why Qi Men Dun Jia Is Tactical And BaZi is Macro

If it so happens that Amber Heard really isn’t found guilty like what the above Qi Men Dun Jia chart says, it doesn’t mean she’s not screwed.

I haven’t touched on a lot of other signs that are appearing in the chart involving the symbols representing the two of them. For example, the sector representing Amber Heard has 乙 + 辛 which itself already shows she’s in a precarious position. It’s interesting that the sector she’s in has 乙 Wood because this has always been the symbol representing females or the wife. 辛 suggests she’s being attacked and the position of these two Stems is such that 乙 is in a very weak position whereas 辛 is in its strongest position.

She might win the case but it doesn’t mean she wins overall in the grand scheme of things.

I think we can all agree that win or lose, Amber Heard’s career is going to take a serious hit. I reversed engineered her BaZi chart and this is what I believe it to be:

I know what most people are thinking and that this chart was chosen simply because of the 寅巳申三刑 (yin-si-shen Ungrateful Punishment). It’s definitely a chart that stood out and I guess it’s a coincidence that there’s the yin-si-shen Ungrateful Punishment there, but I made sure to double-check it with the year of her mother’s passing and this birth hour does stand out.

Note that 2022 is 壬寅 year so ‘yin-si-shen’ forms yet again and 壬 Water is involved which is her secondary Spouse Element, which is why I guess things manifested the way they did although 壬寅 in this particular instance does not harm Amber Heard as much, although it’s definitely still unpleasant. The more worrying thing for Amber Heard is that her current 10-year phase is definitely not on her side and she most recently entered into it in 2021, so I highly doubt things will be the same for her again.

Interestingly, the Zi Wei Dou Shu chart of this birth time shows 廉贞化忌 (lian zhen hua ji) in an extremely weak position in her marriage sector. Take a look:

廉贞化忌 is perhaps the accurate star combination that describes a marriage with bloodshed and violence. Some clients don’t understand why I tend to have a reaction when I see 廉贞化忌 in a weak position because most people cannot appreciate nor fathom how bad things can get, so I guess this very visible trial gives you an idea of how this star manifests.

Now, I guess what I am trying to say here is that Qi Men Dun Jia can say one thing but BaZi can say another. It takes a while for a layman to appreciate how Qi Men Dun Jia is applied on the micro, and tactical level, and how BaZi is applied on a macro level. There’s a belief that there are certain things that are very hard to avoid – the bigger the event, the harder it is. You can even say that some things are really just meant to happen and it happens because that’s basically the story that’s ingrained in the charts.

Both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard clearly have very miserable charts when it comes to marriage. Was their so-called ‘luck’ to blame? Nope. Both charts reveal

I’ve said this before but being able to use Qi Men Dun Jia doesn’t mean one gets to live whatever way they want. A Category 4 chart cannot suddenly become a Category 1 chart and I’ve explained why this is so time and time again. Your life will still play out the way your BaZi chart depicts, but hopefully, Qi Men Dun Jia helps you avoid some of the missteps and curveballs. Hopefully.

A Reminder On Marriage & Relationships

I would love to reverse engineer Johnny Depp’s chart and give it a breakdown but I guess I’ll give it a pass for now. That being said, even if you generate his chart without his birth time, it does stand out as a chart that is going to face a lot of relationship issues. You can generate the chart and see it for yourself.

I wish to reiterate here that the kind of partner you end up marrying is written very clearly in your chart. To put it another way, what kind of partner you tend to, or are able to attract, is also written in your chart. If you are a certain kind of person, you will attract a certain kind of partner basically.

Here’s a post I wrote a long time ago:

I won’t repeat whatever I’ve said before. just enjoy the read I guess.

I’ve said this to countless clients, but the funny thing about fate sometimes is that even though someone can be pointing out all the red flags to you, be it with or without Chinese metaphysics, one just dives into a relationship that one’s not supposed to.

As I always say, it’s a process of imbalance trying to seek balance, but not knowing that it leads to even more imbalance.

P.S. Some people have been asking me about the schedule for Qi Men Dun Jia courses. The date/schedule is out but I’ve yet to update the curriculum as I’m recovering from Covid. To put it simply, you’ll be learning whatever you need to in order to decipher a chart on your own. Just visit the Chinese metaphysics courses and lessons page for more updates.
