Originally, Tai Sui or Grand Duke Jupiter 太岁 was an imaginary star that followed the exact path of Jupiter, but in the opposite direction (directly in front of Jupiter), eventually, it was transformed into a group of 60 deities. When we speak of « Stars » we must more imagine a « body of energy ».
Ancient Chinese astronomy, BaZi astrology, and Yi Jing divination use the Chinese calendar which is calculated using the 10 Heavenly Stems 十天 干 (5 elements yin and yang) and the 12 Earthly Branches 十二 地支. Both combined produce a 60-year cycle (60 Jia Zi). The day the Tai Sui goes from one section to another in the celestial sphere is called the Li-Chun 立春 or « Beginning of Spring ». This is the day that is also to mark the start of a new solar year. It is also the best day to honor Tai Sui in taoist temples…
The 60 Tai Sui, or Celestial Generals, are supposed to help the Jade Emperor to control and take charge of the world of the mortals, while this last ruler of Heaven is more in charge of the celestial sphere.
