wealth


Last year, I have written about “meaning of no wealth element in natal chart“.  This time we explore the opposite:  chart with too many wealth elements.  

MEANING OF TOO MANY WEALTH ELEMENTS IN NATAL CHART

Daymaster (DM) is “bossed” around by wife; prone to sickness and injuries.

  1. DM is prone to disasters, gossips and legal problems related to wealth and women
  2. DM has little or no culture or study luck, is likely less educated.
  3. DM has few or no leadership skills.  Subordinates are likely not heeding his commands.
  4. DM is likely making money through physical labor or making “risky money“.
  5. DM is likely greedy, stingy, doing anything for money, “money first”
  6. DM “prefers money over righteousness“, materialistic,  “loves ease and comfort and hates work” type
  7. DM jinxes mother; mother likely suffers chronic illness or disasters with premature death

As usual, there are exceptions to the above, like if wealth element is favorable or unfavorable and DM is strong or weak.  You need to look at other elements of the chart to make predictions.

500th article of this blog:  I have started writing articles about Chinese Metaphysics since 2000.   It takes 18 years to write the 500th article. 

MEANING OF NO WEALTH ELEMENT IN NATAL CHART

  1. Daymaster (DM) lacks relationship or karma with father like father dies prematurely, runs away, is incapable, chronically sick or handicapped.
  2. DM lacks relationship or karma with wife like frequent confrontations, marrying late and likely separated eventually.
  3. DM has little or no wealth luck, is likely to make money through physical labor (except chart with output star/s)
  4. DM has problems keeping money– money comes in first half of the year and gone in the second half.
  5. DM loses wealth mostly due to defraud, robbery, injury or sickness and not for something of value.
  6. DM has no or poor money management skill or losing money due to poor investment or speculations.

As usual, there are exceptions to the above, like if wealth element is unfavorable to the chart, then no wealth element actually is good for wealth.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND NEW YEAR!

0000_fs_guyAfter reading my previous article on “Why check Bazi before doing Feng Shui?“,  a student of mine asks the questions below:

“If a client is in bad wealth luck period and requests wealth enhancement, the practitioner cannot do much with Feng Shui.”

  • But then I ask myself, what is Feng Shui for?
  • Isn’t it to help us during our bad luck periods?
  • If our luck periods are good, we don’t need Feng Shui.   Isn’t this correct?
  • So, if this is the case, then why do we bother with Feng Shui at all?
  • Probably I’m missing something here…

Don’t throw away your Feng Shui books yet.

I will ask more questions to answer your questions — to stimulate your intellectual growth.

FENG SHUI AND WEALTH CORRELATION

Donald Trump had hired Feng Shui Master Pun-yin in the design of his Trump Tower in 1995.  Why it is Donald Trump and not Master Pun-yin becoming ultra-rich and President?

Feng Shui was originated in China.  It is more appropriate to look at the ultra-rich in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

0000_jackmaJack Ma, the CEO of Alibaba Group is known to at least respect and follow Feng Shui practices.  Lee Ka Shing, the real estate tycoon of Hong Kong is well-known for utilizing Feng Shui to enhance his prosperity.  Terry Gou, Taiwanese tycoon, the CEO of Foxconn is also known for dedication to Feng Shui practices down to his ancestral tombs.

I cannot find any ultra-rich Feng Shui masters in these regions (with the exception of Tony Chan who had amassed a huge fortune using “special relationship” with his female client).  Why?

Therefore we can see there may be a correlation between people who hire Feng Shui masters and become richer but no correlation between Feng Shui masters and their wealth level.

Take me for example–  I know 20+ Feng Shui techniques, from “water dragon”, “5-ghosts carry money” to “think and get rich” and 100+ Daoist ritual techniques for attaining or enhancing wealth luck.  I should be very rich but not.  Why?

UNIVERSAL RULE OF WEALTH AND BLESSING0000_ultra_rich

A popular belief in wealth and blessing in China is:  the amount of wealth and blessing of an individual is predetermined.  Only under rare circumstance like extreme hard work and good deeds performed,  the predetermined amount may be altered for the individual.

When you have consumed or used up your predetermined wealth and blessing– you will die even if you have not reached your life-expectancy date.  This is why I do not encourage people to push wealth enhancement because it could also mean they may  cut short their life expectancy unknowingly.

How do you find out your predetermined amount?  The exact amount is hard to determined but a rough sketch can be deduced from checking the wealth elements in one’s Bazi chart.

Another rule of predetermined wealth is one rarely gets all of what one entitled– one must at least show some efforts.  For example, if your predetermined amount is $10M,  you may at most get 0- 70% of the allocated amount.  To get more, you may need to do good deeds, persistent hard work and use metaphysical methods like Feng Shui, QMDJ and Bazi.  But one rarely gets more than the predetermined amount.

Therefore, Feng Shui definitely can help in wealth attainment.  But this is a narrow application of Feng Shui.  Feng Shui serves more functions than just enhancing your wealth luck.

To be continued in Part II:  Can Feng Shui help bad wealth luck period?

“Bok Choy” (bái-cài 白菜)  or Chinese cabbage is the national vegetable of China.  It is the main ingredient of hundreds of Chinese dishes and soups.

0000_bchoi2r

If you have traveled to China as a foreign tourist and your guide took you to the “Friendship Store” to shop, for sure you will see some jade carvings like the pictures here.

0000_bchoi

In some Chinese cities, the people even put up giant sculpture of Chinese Cabbage.

0000_bokchoi0

0000_bchoi12

Why the Chinese love their cabbage so much?  Do they have a  Chinese cabbage fetish?

Actually, this is beyond fetish.  Chinese cabbage is an auspicious symbol in the Chinese cultural belief system.

The Chinese pronunciation of  Chinese cabbage is “bái-cài 白菜”.  It also sounds like “bǎi-cái 百財”. The literal meaning of “bǎi-cái 百財”is “100 types of wealth”, which implies “all kinds of wealth”.

By putting jade carving of bái-cài in the wealth positions of one’s house or shops, the Chinese believe it will attract multiple kinds of wealth into the house or business.

By the same logic, putting up a giant bái-cài sculpture in a city, the local people hope to attract all kinds of wealth streams into the city.

“Ken, I can’t afford a jade bái-cài.  What can I do?”

Today is the second day of the Chinese New Year and also your lucky day.  Here is my top secret of eating your way to the bank–  eat your bái-cài at the wealth position of your house to attract multiple sources of wealth.  Of course, you may put real bái-cài in your wealth position to attract wealth too.  A cabbage can easily last 10+ days before you put it into your stomach.  Bái-cài is inexpensive even in USA.  It costs only around US$1 per pound here.

Happy Year of Rooster!

0000wealthToday is your lucky day!  I am going to tell you the ultimate secret of your permanent “personal wealth position“.  Unlike the wealth position of “Flying Star Feng Shui”, which changes every year, your personal wealth position (PWP) stays in the same location year after year.

This paragraph is for the intellectually curious.  The rest of you can skip this.  PWP is the “lu” 禄 location of one’s Bazi chart.  “Lu” is more than money.  It usually is translated as “fortune” and  includes wealth and “official salary” (important in ancient time but now it means fame and class status).  It is equivalent to the “attire” 临官 level of the “12 life stages of stem strength“.

000pwp

PWP locations.  Click to enlarge

It is easy to locate your permanent PWP with the following table and diagram here as long as you know the last digit of your birth year.  For example, if you were born in 1976, the last digit is “6” and you check the birth year column of the table below for the row with “6”, then check the “Permanent wealth sector” column of the same row– you find “SE3” is your PWP.  Please refer to the right diagram to identify the exact location of SE3 (look for the blue arrow.  For the example here, SE3 is the Si or snake mountain in Feng Shui).

Important Note:  If you were born between January 1 to February 3 of the year, the last digit of your birth year is the previous year!  For example, if your birth day is between January 1 to February 3 of 1966, your last birth year digit is “5” and NOT “6”.

How to “activate” your Personal Wealth Positions:

  • Put your “Wealth God” statue or altar there.
  • Put green plant or fish tank there.
  • Put crystals there
