What is your Surrend...

Recently I had a client who had a rather unusual BaZi – unusual in that it was complex and at the same time, the self element was extremely weak. The client was at something of a crossroads in life and was facing some important decisions about work-life balance and also, finding the...

The Job You Are Dest...

Career consultations, especially for young people who are new to the workforce, are always a challenge for the consultant. It is the combination of the Gen Y disconnect and anxious parents who seem adverse to their child potentially making mistakes in life.  In a recent case, the client in...

Understanding vs Ena...

One of the first challenges any BaZi consultant, especially those new to the game, faces, is the demand for Enablement. Enablement is a very interesting concept. On one level, Enablement has a positive connotation, denoting giving a person or situation the tools, resources and information...

When a consultant...

People often find it hard to believe that a BaZi consultant would well, see a astrological consultant. But just like doctor’s don’t operate on themselves, and lawyer’s hire other lawyers when they get into trouble, so a BaZi consultant should well, consult other consultants...

I am a terrible BaZi...

I really am. I’m solution-orientated and goal driven as a consultant. So if you don’t know what you want, I’m a terrible Bazi Consultant. I’m all about the bottom-line and practical, sensible advice. So if you’re looking for someone to hold your hand and tell you...
