Have you ever wonder given the same job, with the same qualifications and experiences why some of your peers got promoted and you are not? Do you feel the frustrating dynamics of being undervalued? This page is dedicated to those who are talented, capable and yet continuously missing their career promotions and increment. Or do you feel that your career has hit a rough patch and do not see the rainbow end? Perhaps you have missed out something that you are not aware of.
Achieve success in your career by matching your Bazi Personality Assets
An individual tends to do better in the profession that his bazi configuration assets possess.
Please allow me to illustrate by taking a real life example of my client. The chart shows the Bazi profile of a “Gui water” person born in Summer. Gui is “yin” water like rain drops or morning dew. His root configuration are 巳month 午 year 未 day 三会火局 forms the trilogy combo of intense fire.
In order to help you to visualise the problem of his birth configuration assets and liabilities, this Day Master Gui water is like evaporated into “steam” during Summer season. His Birth profile most favourable element is “Metal” which is found in the time root call the “偏 pian 印 yin star” based on bazi algorithm of calculation. i would like to translate this “star” term as “prejudice or indirect support” help. The unique characteristic about “pian yin star” unlike 正印 Zheng Yin star (benevolent support) is because “yang” supports “yang” or “yin” supports “yin” not exactly a total selfless sacrificing love connection of Yin and Yang principle. The collaboration of these 2 elements is more of a mutual benefit situation. In this example is “Yin Metal 辛金” produces “Yin Water 癸水” element.
Through this bazi configuration we can understand that this person is exceptionally talented in new discoveries, research, creativity and his thoughts are one of a kind. Hence this Day Master profile will be more suited to develop his career in jobs that involves autonomous, independent skill or craft e.g. religious leaders, high tech specialist, psychologist, forensic scientist etc. Professional, special/unique skill set like creative, design, marital arts, performance arts, advertising, model, celebrity, literary arts would fit his personality like a glove. If the job fits his personality it will be easier for him to succeed in that craft.
Work Smart! Only Half of Your effort is needed for Promotion
Using the same example that the Day Master requires “Metal”, he can work in a Banking and Finance industry as an IT specialist or an Investment Manager something that is of specialist and unique in work designation not as a “mass-market position” of a branch manager. Thus if the business industry type is suitable to his bazi favourable elements and his personality strengths and weaknesses; he will only need half the effort to achieve the same promotion compared to a person’s that is unsuitable. Bazi is amazing isn’t it. Acknowledging and understanding your own personal bazi strengths is the first step of working smart.
Using Annual Home Feng Shui Luck to boost your Career
Every year look out for the annual flying star “1”, “6” and “8”. Flying star 1 represents “networking” and people-skills 桃花 (flower as in picture) more suited for white collar and 6 武曲 blue collar jobs and 8 左輔 for promotion and wealth. This year SW is 1 and W is 6 and Wealth is in the South sector. However this energies only lasts for one year. It will disappear by end Jan 2015. Use the chart on the right for feng shui 2015 enhancement.
Gua Symbolism North sector does not represent Career and South is not Fame
Do not believe the common misnomer that North represents career and South represent fame; feng shui does not work on a static platform. Feng shui is time dynamic, just like our luck that goes up and down. You also do not need to buy feng shui products for career boost, just use and activate the sector! Imagine if you just place one item on every sector in your office; you will end up with 9 items? Lamp, Plant, Crystal, Phoenix, flowers, wind chimes etc? Does that make any sense?
In today’s competitive job market with foreigners filling up the upper echelon appointments it is timely for Singaporeans like yourself not just to work hard but to work smart as well.
One wise man ever mentioned, if you have “ethics” and “talents” then you are the right employee to hire. If you have ethics but short of talent than you need to groom the staff into a “star”. If you have a talented staff but without ethics that you have to manage him under close scrutiny. Obviously if your staff without talent and ethics that he will be out of job.
I believe you are one person with “ethics” and “talents” and you have been waiting for your big break in your career promotion. Sometimes you wonder why did you missed your last promotion opportunity. Getting a good boss to help you out involve in Chinese feng shui call the 靠山 or mountain. These are some of feng shui career tips for you to check around your home feng shui or office feng shui and see what you are missing:
If the back of your home apartment is absent of a taller building than chances are you do not get much support from your superior. Does your superior constantly take away the credit that is duly yours? Find out the destiny of your home and locate the mountain flying star “8” or “9” to compensate for the missing “mountain”? If the physical forms outside is not higher than you, you can artificially create “mountains” by having tall cabinets behind you. Don’t have to be so old fashioned to put “mountain paintings” on the wall. LOL.
Authentic teachings of feng shui have this saying that anything that are high e.g. cupboards are consider as mountains and whatever is lower in comparison e.g. door, lobby are water. But look into the Destiny of your office as well to maximise the effect.
At the back of your home do you have a taller building or overlooking a playground? Or worse still are there any construction going on at your backyard? Or do you have a sharp angular shaped building which is feng shui “sha qi” 煞气；so instead of getting support from your home environment, it only invites “bad-stabbing” from your colleagues.
The front of your home do you have a building that is taller than you. This discourages wealth and recognition for your abilities. It poses challenges for your career promotion.
Is your office desk situated back against the door without having a partition?

Feng shui misnomer about Career wealth
i recently got a call from one enquirer checking about improving her wealth she mentioned to activate the South East sector of her home with a fish tank or water feature. i was surprised and google it. She was right that there are some webs still publish these redundant theories of feng shui. Feng shui is simple but not that simple.
