I have dedicated my latest articles to love and there will be more articles on that topic because there is still a lot to say about it but this time I’m going to write about money because whoever doesn’t want love I’m sure is looking for money and most likely those who want love, would like some additional money as well.
As explained in my previous article http://www.vivianaestrada.com/en-US/blog/227-how-do-you-keep-the-love-alive.html we all have a relationship palace in our birth chart. Guess what, we also have a career palace, in this case more than a palace it is a pillar so it is like a two-story palace that has at least two energetical components, one on top and one below.
The career pillar represents what we do for living so it deals with any activity that we perform to make money. That pillar provides a lot of information regarding our most suitable activity to generate wealth. It tells us the what, the how and the where in a pictorial way because that is the way the Chinese like to communicate.
Of course, to unveil everything about our most suitable economic activity we need more than one article, as usual there are many layers, but let me at least start with the basic one, which is very easy to understand and it is very helpful. It deals with the field or industry we should work for.
If we are in the right field we enjoy our job, if we are not in the right field we could make money but we don’t enjoy our job. It is not a matter of not being able to expand in that field, it is a matter of not feeling well because there is little or no affinity. If we don't have affinity we don't see actual benefits from performing in that industry, we don't perceive a contribution, we don't believe that what we do makes a difference, so we don’t have enough passion.
On the other side, when we are in the right field we enjoy what we do, we find our job meaningful and rewarding and when we enjoy what we do the chances of making money are endless, we just have to make sure that on top of working in the right field we are also using our talents. And how do we know our talents? That will be addressed in a future article so stay tuned, in the meantime let me tell you how to determine if you are in the right field.
1. Go to my BaZi Calculator and plot your natal chart. You don’t need your time of birth so if you don’t have it, it is OK.
2. Identify your career pillar that is your month pillar.
3. Identify the elements in that pillar. For this evaluation you don’t need to pay attention to the polarity (yin/yang), just focus on the elements per-se: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. For instance, the chart below contains wood, metal, fire and earth in the career pillar.
4. Make sure that you work in a field or industry that is represented by any of the elements in your career pillar.
a. Wood: Education, writing, publishing, cultural affairs, Chinese medicine, fashion, clothing.
b. Fire: Technology, beauty, food preparation, manufacturing, metaphysics, alcohol, fuel, electric and electronics.
c. Earth: Construction, real estate, properties, natural resources, services, western medicine, insurance, antiques.
d. Metal: Automobile, judicial, mechanical, finance, banking, jewelry.
e. Water: Travel, logistics, trading, shipping, wisdom, entertainment, aquatic, journalism, movies, mass communications.
Not every field or industry is easily classified into elements so if you can’t find yours, look at your job function or scope. For instance, if your career pillar contains the metal element you might feel satisfied being a financial controller.
