Goodbye Guinea Pig&#...

One of the frequent pieces advice I give to BaZi students is GET A GUINEA PIG. Someone you can experiment on, test out your bazi knowledge and generally, figure out how BaZi works on a live wriggling example. Of course, you are your own best guinea pig but is helps also to have guinea pigs...

3 Eggs, 5 chickens&#...

The job of the BaZi consultant is to ask hard questions of the client. Not to let the client tell us what they want. But for us to tell them what can be done, within the parameters of what they want. Recently I was discussing a chart with someone and the topic entered around how to best...

Planning vs Counting...

A recent BaZi client sought advice on financial planning for the future. Her efforts were of course wise – she as nearing her 30s, had a good job that involved a technical skill, and had some goals she wanted to achieve in terms of her finances.  She knew she was coming up on a good...

Money Never Sleeps&#...

It’s been a while since my last class, which was Annual Analysis 101, conducted in Kuala Lumpur. This year’s class has been a while in the offing because it has been difficult to find a topic that i’m very passionate about to spend 3 days talking non stop about it. The...

How to train a Xin 辛...

Note: I just realised that it’s been so long since I wrote one of these, I actually had to GO BACK and look at my original post “How to Train a Jia 甲 Wood” to remember, what these posts were actually about. Memo to self: gotta get back in the saddle again.  Important...

Monkey or Rooster? A...

So officially today, we Enter the Rooster. Or do we? I am not yet convinced that what we are seeing (especially in the USA under Trump) represents the Rooster. Rather, this is the vestiges of the Bing Shen finally showing its true colours (with some intermingling of the emerging Rooster). I...

Economic Forecast fo...

So usually I write this at the same time as my annual forecast but hey, stuff happens and this sort of fell along the back burner. So at the risk of the usual hindsight is 20-20 comments, I’m publishing this anyway, six months late. (better late than never right). That being said, I am...

On Reading the DM us...

Usually I answer the Comments on my blog via the blog platform but this was an interesting question so I thought I would answer it more fully.   QUESTION: What do you think about people with DM Jia Chen? I heard they are sneaky and have bad money management. But the people I met don’t...

How to be the person...

WARNING: this article contains much gratuitous use of profanity. Read on at your own peril.         Over the last two weeks (must be that time of the year, when people are setting out resolutions, contemplating their lives, reconsidering their friendships, relationships,...

Throwback Forecast: ...

Manchester United fans are all of course, wondering what is happening to their team this season. It’s been truly a rotten season for Louis van Gaal (I’m no football maniac but I read the sports pages occasionally).   Perhaps after this, Manchester United might consider hiring...
