If you have the Goat in your Bazi Chart, come 2024, you will have cornered the market on the nobleman stars. Four – count ‘em… 1, 2, 3, 4. What to do with them?

2024 Goat Zodiac


The Goat was the problem solver of 2023. With the Relief God and Sky Relief coming together. There was also promotion luck. But basically, in 2023, the Goat probably gained confidence in your problem-solving skills. At the very least.

Problem-solver in 2023, obviously means that your problem-solving skills will continue to be tested in 2024. But you are not left defenseless, you know? For every issue, there seems to be a solution! The question is whether or not you are in the position to activate these stars.

The Piercing Rope creates fear and insecurity caused by external pressure. Most likely, economic pressure. Inflation or recession. Especially vulnerable are any Wood Day Masters with the Goat in their Chart. Prices are increasing, the salary’s not keeping up. Now, the feeling is one thing, but if it forces you to become reckless in your pursuit of wealth – for example, buying into money games looking for quick wins and easy money – then it can bring problems.

What can counter it? The Moon. This is a nobleman star. Specifically, it is a star of entrepreneurial ideas. What it’s saying is that you may be feeling economic pressure, but you may have some ideas on how to counter it. Maybe start a side gig? Or look into how you can generate new income streams.

This Moon nobleman star can be internal, which is your own ideas. Or it can also come in the form of other people. Example, you are chatting with an acquaintance, and somehow the conversation triggers an idea for you. When this star is available to you, need to be paying attention.


Next comes the Hook Spirit. This represents problems from the past that you may have swept under the rug. It represents stagnation. Maybe, things are not going smoothly because you are insisting on living in the past. It can also represent stagnation caused by projection of past failure. And this projection is stopping you from moving forward. Alternatively, if you got promoted in 2023, this Hook Spirit could be referring to the fact that you inherited a whole can of worms.

To counter its effects, we have the Heavenly Yi. This is, pure and simple, a nobleman star. Talk to somebody, get a coach – don’t just stay stuck, talk it through, find someone to bounce your concerns on and brainstorm your ideas. Hey, I’m available! Booking link at the end of this post.


The Great Assembly talks about loopholes in your system. Wealth leaking out caused by either hiring the wrong people, buying into the wrong solutions that are obviously not working, could even talk about how you run your financial life. Maybe subscribing to unnecessary subscriptions?

To counter, we have the Heavenly Nobleman. This is a minor nobleman star, but it is considered a wealth nobleman. Activating this requires steady hard work. It requires us to be present and meticulous about how we run our own financial systems. Being detail-oriented about how we spend our money, as distasteful as that activity may be.


The Disaster Sha represents obstacles. It tests our abilities to adapt to the changing environment. This is a ‘no pain no gain’ type of star. Again, it is being countered by the Sky Gracious – yet another nobleman star in your corner. The Sky Gracious enhances likability and intelligence. The intelligence to know when to fight, and when to retreat, for example.

Finally, the Sky Sha. This is asking you to pay more attention to your family’s health and wellbeing. Something in your environment may be causing disharmony or illness.

I’m not gonna minimize these effects. Nor am I going to victim blame. These negative stars can be quite stressful. Faced with these, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. Hence, the need for so many nobleman stars.


So where is all this problem-solving leading to? To the Heavenly Officer. You are being given a chance to lead and influence. This star, can lead to more promotion for the career professionals, or for the business owners, it leads to a good reputation.

The Heavenly Officer talks about gaining a reputation as someone with the ability to lead people and organizations past uncertain economic outlooks, stagnation, loopholes, and changing external environments. To activate this, focus on improving on your leadership and influencing skills.

And while you lead, with so many nobleman stars supporting you, be teachable, be adaptable.

Because in 2025, comes the opportunities for more visibility.


But please remember, this is not prophetic in nature. Also, this way of presenting the Zodiac stars is just one possible permutation of how things can flow. It can happen in any way. The goal of these annual posts is not to scare you. The goal is to show you what you want to avoid. These are neither promises nor threats! They’re just here to show you possible outcomes. So I hope, that in reading this, you learn to accentuate the positives and sidestep the negatives.


The Year Pillar governs our external world – our industry, market, social networks, social media. So if you have the Goat in your Year Pillar, with so many nobleman stars, there is only one solution – network! Get out there, talk, exchange ideas, contribute ideas, build the relationships, let others get to know you.

In terms of reputation building, what could you be talking about on social media or during networking events? Well, apparently, your external world is interested in issues like stagnation, systemic problems, governmental and environmental pressures. In short, ESG – environmental, social and governance.

If you are an expert in ESG, 2024 is your year to do something that can enhance that reputation. If you are not an expert in ESG, in 2024, should you network, there is a high chance you can meet these experts and learn from them.


Brace for a busy, challenging and interesting year if the Goat governs your Month, which is the career and business pillar. Most important of all, build your team. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when these stars fall in your career pillar. So make sure you have backing.

Allow other people to help you. When we have so many nobleman stars, our job is to be helpable.

Also important to have contingency plans in case of breakdowns and disruptions to your supply chain. Pay close attention to loopholes in your business systems. I’m talking about shoring up or strengthening the weak links. For example, if without that one thing, you cannot run your business – 2024 is the year to find a solution for that.

Be open to new ways of doing business. This is not the time to get stuck in the past. Be adaptable and flexible where your career and business is concerned. It’s not about being direction-less. It’s about the realization that there are multiple ways to get to a certain outcome.


The Day Pillar governs our personal wellbeing, physical wellbeing, as well as our intimate relationships – specifically, our partners.

Here, the priority falls on stress management. Find healthy ways to de-stress as opposed to carrying your stress back home, radiating all that negative energy, and affecting everyone else who lives with you in your household.

Also within your relationship or marriage, some past unresolved issues may be cropping up again. Old arguments, for instance.

Can you choose to be the nobleman to each other? Be each other’s comfort and sounding board? If you are in a relationship, this is a time to share each other’s burden, and therefore, making it lighter and making the relationship stronger – because we become each other’s nobleman. Has external pressure ever caused the end of a relationship? More times than we can count!


The Hour Pillar governs our ideas, aspirations, investments, and the people under our care – typically, children. It also governs our thinking pattern or mindset.

With the Goat in the hour, seems like there is a high chance that you may be more inclined to start a side gig in 2024. Why? Because you feel the external pressure coming together with the Moon which represents entrepreneurial ideas.

When it comes to investments, you may want to re-look into your existing investment vehicles and the way you make your investment decisions. Is it time to update your investment strategies by learning more? After all, you have so many nobleman willing to teach you.

But in the Hour, for business owners – be extra careful about the Great Assembly. Someone in your staff might be taking advantage of loopholes in your system.

Of the 10 Gods in the Bazi profiling system, the one that resembles most closely to Mr. Scrooge is the Direct Wealth. For the Xin Metal Day Masters, December 2023’s Jia Zi month is your Direct Wealth sitting on Eating God.

December 2023 Bazi
December 2023 Bazi Chart. Plotted on: www.joeyyap.com/bzchart

The Direct Wealth is rather calculative by nature – primarily because of its close association with values like responsibility, reliability, and accountability. Driven by these high standards, Xin Metal Day Masters may find themselves unaccountably volunteering to organize all the Christmas festivities. That is certainly one way to make practical use of your Direct Wealth star. But beyond that, how about we use the spirit of forgiveness to counter the urge to be calculative?

After all, Christmas is a season of second chances. A time to release the burdens of resentment and find healing through the power of forgiveness. Write forgiveness letters to yourself (and maybe others?), acknowledging past hurts and expressing a sincere willingness to let go. In the act of forgiveness, discover the liberation that comes from unburdening your heart and embracing the possibility of a fresh start.

Organize a forgiveness ritual for yourself, symbolizing a commitment to release grievances and move forward with a clean slate. Whether through the lighting of candles or the planting of forgiveness seeds, let the ritual mark a profound shift towards healing. In these moments of forgiveness, discover the transformative power of releasing the weight of the past and embracing the lightness of forgiveness.

As you partake in festive gatherings, let the spirit of forgiveness permeate your interactions. Be open to understanding the perspectives of others, recognizing that everyone carries their own burdens. In these moments of empathy and release, discover that forgiveness is not just a gift to others but a profound act of self-love, creating space for joy and emotional well-being to flourish.

In December 2023’s Jia Zi month, the Geng Metal Day Masters see your Indirect Wealth sitting on Hurting Officer. For sure, a great month to make money. But beyond the obsession for profits and leverage, both the Indirect Wealth and Hurting Officer are extravagant, lavish, and yes, generous to a fault!

December 2023 Bazi
December 2023 Bazi Chart. Plotted on: www.joeyyap.com/bzchart

So absolutely, let this Christmas be a season of generosity. In a world that can sometimes seem hurried and self-focused, let the spirit of giving and sharing define the essence of the holiday.

As you gather with loved ones, friends, and even strangers, consider the ways in which you can be generous with your time, attention, and compassion. Be present in the moment, organize gift exchanges that focuses on sentimental value rather than monetary worth, and extend a helping hand to those who may need it.

Embrace the joy of giving without expecting anything in return. Extend the spirit of generosity to the broader community by organizing a neighbourhood fundraiser. Pool resources to support a local charity or family in need. Whether it’s through thoughtful gifts, acts of kindness, or gestures of goodwill, let your generosity create a ripple effect, inspiring others to share in the spirit of the season and create a communal legacy of kindness.

Consider reaching out to those who may be less fortunate, contributing to community initiatives, or supporting charitable causes. The true magic of Christmas often lies in the ability to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

In this season of generosity, may your actions reflect the warmth and goodwill that embody the true meaning of Christmas, creating a tapestry of shared joy and kindness that extends far beyond the holiday season.

What does December 2023’s Jia Zi month represent for the Ji Earth Day Master? Your Direct Officer sitting on Indirect Resource. The Direct Officer is a prized star in classical Bazi. But today, it represents all the buzzkill words – discipline, authority, a feeling of being constrained, perhaps even collectivism. But beneath that wet blanket beats a heart that is sincere in wanting to support the people around you. Hence, for the Ji Earth Day Master, the Spirit of Support.

This Christmas, let yours be the hand that uplifts those around you. In a season filled with joy and celebration, let your actions echo the spirit of generosity and kindness, reaching out to lift others higher.

Amidst the festive decorations and joyful gatherings, take a moment to recognize those who may be in need of support. Be the hand that extends warmth to the lonely, comfort to the grieving, and encouragement to the disheartened. Sometimes, a simple gesture of compassion can make a world of difference.

As you share laughter and create memories with loved ones, be mindful of the opportunity to be a source of strength for others. Your words of encouragement, your acts of kindness, and your willingness to listen can be a beacon of hope, lighting up the lives of those who may be facing challenges.

And as you do so, may your actions create ripples of positivity, turning the holiday spirit into a force that lifts hearts and fosters a sense of community and connection.

Finally, it’s December! For good or ill, 2023 is coming to an end. Well, almost! In the Chinese Metaphysics calendar, we still have one more month to go.

Each month, as I sit down to prepare these forecasts for my blog, the approach changes just a little. Because I take inspiration from the month’s Bazi Chart. Sometimes, I even hear music (typically, 80s pop, but that’s another story for another time). And the moment I saw the December 2023 Bazi Chart, Mariah Carey started singing, “All I want for Christmas, is youuuuuuu.”

The December 2023 Bazi Chart is a nice chart to set the tone for the holidays.  For one, the Jia Zi pillar is literally visualized as a lush evergreen growing on pristine white snow. Cue: the Christmas tree. The chart is also filled with peach blossom animals – the Rat, the Rabbit, and the Rooster – infusing the air with, perhaps, a sprinkling of star dust?

The holidays seasons is a time for parties and catching up with friends. With all that peach blossom hanging about, who knows? Certainly, this is not a time to be cooped up at home!

As I post this, I know Christmas is exactly a month away! But hey, if the Christmas trees are already up in the shopping malls, I can post them on my blog too! 😊

Therefore, for the December 2023 Bazi Forecast, I have decided to delve into the less-explored side of the 10 Gods. The more humane side, if you will. For one month, let’s embark on a journey of the heart and allow the enchantment of Christmas to illuminate the path to inner joy and connection. I don’t get warm and fuzzy too often. Enjoy it while it lasts! 🤣By January, we’ll probably get back to the hustle and the grind.

One of the more interesting zodiac signs in 2024 is the Horse. No doubt, there are plenty of challenges to resolve, but there is an out. To make the best of the Horse in 2024, you must be open to new solutions.


2024 Horse Zodiac

The Horse had nobleman luck in 2023 but also faced a lot of external pressure to hustle.

Now in 2024, comes three powerful problem solving stars. When you have these many problem-solving stars, obviously, you have problems to solve.

Both the Relief God and Sky Relief are problem dissolvers. They smooth over difficult events.

To support the Relief God and Sky Relief, you also have the Taiji Nobleman that enhances wisdom and intuition. Somehow, you just know what to do, when to do, how to do.

These three can’t work by themselves. They need your input. And the solution is very simple – just be open to solutions. Don’t dismiss anything out of hand. Give every idea due consideration – especially your own ideas!

It is very human to dismiss our own ideas. As humans, we tend to place more weightage on other people’s input as opposed to our own. With the Taiji Nobleman, you must be aware of this tendency in 2024.

These three together is about fostering a curious and open mind. Approaching problem solving with a sense of curiosity and eagerness to explore different perspectives, embrace diverse ideas and seek out alternative solutions.


What can stop this from happening? The Prison Inmate and Instability stars. When you plot your own Bazi Chart using any of the plotters, you might find the Prison Inmate and Instability further down the list. Naturally, most people will think that they are not too important.

But in 2024, being aware of their effects is very important. Because these two are the ones that can block the effects of the Relief God, Sky Relief and Taiji Nobleman.

As mentioned, using the Relief God, Sky Relief and Taiji Nobleman, requires us to be open to different types of solution. The Prison Inmate puts blinders before our eyes. It’s a feeling of being stuck – physically, mentally, emotionally. Of seeing things from a very limited perspective. It’s the urge to stand still when you should be moving. It causes inertia and a lack of motivation and helplessness.

What can we do to overcome this? Again, it’s all about the mindset. The marker for the Prison Inmate are two words: ‘No Choice!’ If you hear yourself thinking that, or even verbalizing those two words frequently, it’s time to encourage yourself to examine things from different perspectives. There is always a choice. Doing nothing is also a choice.

Next is Instability. Basically, from your point of view, things are not stable. Life is sometimes good, sometimes bad. This can cause emotional instability and mood swings. This one can be a drama queen. When added together with the Prison Inmates, there seems to be a lamentable tendency to catastrophize.


If you can overcome the Prison Inmate and Instability, the problems brought about by the rest of the negative stars become mere hassles. They can be solved.

Let’s examine the types of problems that you may be called upon to solve in 2024.

The Calamity Sha is a mishaps star. It can cause an outflow of wealth because there may potentially be small accidents, illnesses, maybe damage to your house, or damage caused by natural disasters such as floods. Make sure your insurance is up to date. It can also mean disharmony in the home – basically, Calamity Sha is hinting that you may have a Feng Shui problem.


Separating Edge also talks about relationship problems. It affects your ability to connect with other people. Basically, the Horse has become a little tone deaf in 2024. Diplomacy is the key.

Great Sha is a lot like the White Tiger. It calls for a more conservative approach to people. There is potential of petty people and petty gossip. Bad if their presence deviates you from your intended path. Basically, this represents obstacles that may stop you from moving forward. This can have a big impact if you are stuck in Prison Inmate mode.


The Flying Chaste and Blood Knife are blood-related accidents. This just requires presence of mind when you are driving or handling sharp objects. And as always, an easy out with the Blood Knife is to visit the dentist. Since blood has to flow… we might as well have nice teeth in return!


In general, the Funeral Door and Earth Funeral points at the possibility of hearing bad news. They can also mean that your immunity level or energy level is lower in 2024, so more care must be taken for your health and physical wellbeing.


And then we have the Red Chamber. Traditionally, this is a negative star because it represents scandals caused by lust and romance.

But here’s the thing, the Red Chamber can be a good Peach Blossom star. Good for sales. Because a Peach Blossom star is still a star of likability and attention. And Period 9 is the attention economy. Use this wisely, it can help improve your year.


All these problem solving are leading you towards the Eight Seats. It brings access to decision makers. It creates the opportunity to become a key person within an organization or an industry. Because apparently, you are the problem fixer!

And where are we heading towards for 2025? The ability to make an even greater impact.


But please remember, this is not prophetic in nature. Also, this way of presenting the Zodiac stars is just one possible permutation of how things can flow. It can happen in any way. The goal of these annual posts is not to scare you. The goal is to show you what you want to avoid. These are neither promises nor threats! They’re just here to show you possible outcomes. So I hope, that in reading this, you learn to accentuate the positives and sidestep the negatives.


With the Horse in your Year Pillar that represents your industry, market, social media and social networks, from your perspective, it’s a noisy world out there. A lot of arguments, conflicting opinions, controversies, scandals. There is also a danger that may accidentally trigger the trolls because of a tone-deaf post.

The answer – diplomacy. We use the Relief God and Sky Relief to pour oil over troubled waters. Be the voice of reason.

Horse in the Year Pillar in 2024 is also an opportunity to be known as a problem-solver. To earn a reputation as someone who can fix problems.


With the Horse in the month, you may find that miscommunications keep cropping up in your work environment. Basically, nobody is on the same page.

The problems to solve, apparently, are human-related problems. People not seeing eye to eye. Somebody not talking to everybody. Nobody wants to compromise.

Human-related problems are the hardest to solve, aren’t they? If things get broken, we can buy a replacement. But people working at cross-purposes is hard to resolve. If you are the one who can be the bridge and get everyone on the same page. Do you not think that you will be super valuable?

Great soft skills to have with the Horse in your Month – as a mediator or facilitator. When you attend a meeting, somehow the voices of dissent are muted. Somehow you manage to get people working together again. Isn’t that a valuable skill to have?


If you have Horse in the Day Pillar, the indications are looking at harmony in your home and personal relationships. For some reason, in 2024, you seem to feel like there is no harmony in your relationships. Everyone is fighting each other at home. Could be siblings disagreeing with each other, maybe parents with children, the family is no longer aligned.

This is where the Prison Inmate can be a threat – you feel like you have no choice but to accept this situation. And then the situation escalates until being at home is no longer pleasant.

I would love to ask you to be the active mediator in this case, but I’m also mindful of the Funeral Door and Earth Funeral. Managing family disharmony saps a lot of energy. So I’m going to go against conventional advice here, and suggest that whatever happens, look after your own personal wellbeing first. Don’t martyr yourself, please. Because you can only be a part of the solution if you are not a part of the problem.

But how to use these stars to grow? Be systematic about tackling problems in your life. Solve what you can first. One step at a time.


The Horse in the Hour Pillar is the most interesting. The Hour Pillar can represent our thoughts, investments, children, staff, ideas, aspirations and ideals.

Let’s look at this from the mindset perspective. Your ideas may be a bit too contradictory to the norm in 2024. Basically, you may be too future-forward. Others can’t keep up. They can’t accept your ideas because they are not ready yet or they don’t see what you see. Find new ways to communicate your ideas.

For investments – minimize your risks because of the Calamity Sha that may cause instability in the market. Please make sure you have capital protection in place.

From the perspective of children, teaching your kids how to cope with social pressure could be your job for 2024.

If you have the Snake zodiac in your Bazi Chart, come 2024, the most powerful nobleman star is coming to you. The question is, what are we going to do with it?

2024 Snake Zodiac


Let’s start with a quick recap of 2023 where the Snake was encouraged to explore new directions.

In 2024, at pride of place, of course is the Great Sun! In Feng Shui, we do the Great Sun activation every year for our house. It protects the home from any accidental triggers. In Bazi, this Great Sun represents the ultimate nobleman luck.

Now before we start looking left, right and centre for our nobleman, let’s take this one step further and put ourselves in the position of the noble person. Receiving noble help is a blessing, right? Being in the position to be the noble person is double the blessing.

Like the Sun that gives warmth and light without reservation, with zero scarcity thinking, with no expectations. When you do that, it leads on to better things ahead.


This Nobleman star of yours is being supported by the Intelligence star. With this, we can do three things – we can, of course, learn something new, increase our value, upskill… or, we can teach what we know. Like the Sun, we share what we know.

When you do that, the Bright Hall kicks in. This is a fame star. People begin to notice you. You shine brighter. You become the go-to person for advice.

In conclusion, with Great Sun, Intelligence star and Bright Hall coming for you, it’s time to stop hiding your light under a bushel.


When people start noticing you, the invitations start pouring in. That’s the Sky Happiness and Heavenly Chef. They are networking stars. They both mean good food and drinks to be had. Happy events in the offing – parties, shared meals, etc. All the fun stuff!


Which then leads us to the Five Prosperity. This is typically described as the opportunity to gain multiple income sources. Which means that, there is a chance to explore. You are being given options. Options are great! The worst possible thing to happen is when one is left with no choice.

And this Five Prosperity can easily carry you into 2025 when YOU will be the Grand Duke.


In this particular scenario for the Snake, the Robbery Sha can carry several different impacts. One possibility is the most realistic – I lose money because of friends. Of course! If you are invited to a wedding, guess what, money goes out in the form of red packets or gifts. Even if you eschew all wedding invitations, networking still cost money.

Second possibility, you may talk too much while bathing in the limelight of flattery and adoration. So, be smart about sharing your ideas.

The third possibility may come from scarcity thinking. You reject all invitations because you think people are going to steal your ideas. Ergo, you automatically classify networking as a complete waste of time. While we do not have to accept every invitation that comes our way, certain networking opportunities can be valuable to create new growth avenues.


At this point, the Sky Emptiness starts taking over. This influence of the Sky Emptiness creates unreasonably high expectations. Big talk. Big talk from either you or other people. At its most dangerous, it can cause a loss of credibility because you over-promised and under-delivered. Or it may cause you to feel that networking is a waste of time because everyone is just talking big, but delivering nothing.

Here’s the trick with a nobleman star. It’s nothing new. I’ve shared this plenty of times. When you are looking for a nobleman, the first thing you need to have is the criteria for said nobleman. You can’t just randomly go out to networking events and just see where it will lead you. Inevitably, this leads to disappointment.

When it comes to nobleman luck, you must be very clear about what you need. Someone with contacts? Knowledge? Skillset? That criteria must be in your head first, so that you don’t waste time.


Should the Robbery Sha and Sky Emptiness take over, the Solitary star comes along. “I do my own thing. I don’t need nobody. Don’t invite me. I don’t do weddings.”

And then we end up with the Bad Qi – feeling sluggish, lame, stagnant.

If you go this route, the Grand Duke year in 2025 will be unnecessarily hard.

When you look at this permutation as a whole, the conclusion for the Snake is very simple. 2024 is the year you improve on your influencing abilities. Your communication skills. Your ability to persuade, convince and convert.


But please remember, this is not prophetic in nature. Also, this way of presenting the Zodiac stars is just one possible permutation of how things can flow. It can happen in any way. The goal of these annual posts is not to scare you. The goal is to show you what you want to avoid. These are neither promises nor threats! They’re just here to show you possible outcomes. So I hope, that in reading this, you learn to accentuate the positives and sidestep the negatives.


With the Snake in the Year, is literally like being an influencer. Of course, the first advice is to network. Because the Year pillar governs your social and professional circles. It also governs your market and industry. Invest the time, build the relationships, start connecting with other people.

What else? Can you get famous this year. How? Get active on social media. Be proactive about attracting more followers. How? By sharing information – you be the nobleman first. You give value first.

Of course, you could be thinking, I don’t know anything. Trust me, you know something.


For the Snake in the Month, time management is the key. Here, the impact of the Sky Emptiness might be felt. When people trust your reputation, you get more projects. Be picky about what you say yes to. Be strategic about it. Do not over-promise and under-deliver.

How else can use these stars in the Month pillar? Create a happy environment at work! People are more productive when they are happy. Create a warm and vibrant environment where everyone is celebrated for their contributions. It’s ridiculous how many bosses forget to do that.

Still using the Great Sun – make a promise to yourself now – where possible, every person that leaves your orbit feels a little bit happier, lighter, and more hopeful. Not everyone has this ability to make people feel good about themselves. But it’s a skill that can be developed. Being easy to work with is a highly under-rated skill.


For the Snake in the Day, the stars that may have a bigger impact are the Sky Happiness and Robbery Sha.

Sky Happiness means happy events. In the olden days, it means happy life events such as weddings, having babies, those type of stuff. That applies to you too. Maybe you have something joyful to celebrate in your personal life!

If you are getting married or having babies, guess what – money goes out. Cue, the Robbery Sha.

But maybe you are single. Could this be the year you rebuild your relationship with your family and friends? But here’s the thing with the Robbery Sha in the day – the risk of retail therapy is also quite high. Don’t spend money just to prove a point. If you’re gonna spend money, spend it to upskill and improve yourself.

Is there relationship luck in this case? Yes! Because you are noticeable. So maybe money spent on packaging yourself?


With the Snake in your Investment Pillar (your Hour Pillar), explore and seek out diverse investment options. Be very careful here. I’m going to get very specific. The Robbery Sha can mean investment scam. OK to explore, learn, test the waters, find out what’s out there, but do not go all in.

Of course, from a personal development point of view, you can also invest into learning a new skill. Because the Intelligence star enhances your ability to absorb complex information.

Because the Hour Pillar is also your children’s pillar – you could focus on using shared experiences to build an enriching relationship with your kids.

For the Earth Day Masters, November 2023 brings you an influx of Wealth energies. So be prepared for a busy month ahead. But it’s not about the number of hours you put in. It’s about the results you consistently produce. Within the energies of November 2023, lies a hidden opportunity to gain clarity in your goal-setting.

Without this clarity, you may find yourself swamped by a deluge of tasks – some of which may even serve to distract and divert you from your original goal. This lack of focus – distractions and competing priorities – is exactly what you can address in November 2023.

When Earth meets Water, mud ensues. This scenario suggests a lack of clarity which can make it difficult to set goals because it can be hard to identify what you want to achieve. When one lacks clarity, one may not have a clear understanding of your values, priorities, or strengths, all of which can make it difficult to set meaningful and achievable goals.

At the same time, unclear or vague goals can also impede your ability to identify what you need to do to achieve them, resulting in confusion and frustration. Therefore, let’s take the time in November 2023 to gain clarity about what you want to achieve and why. So that you can set goals that are aligned with your values and priorities, which in turn increases your chances of success.

To start, let’s first get a firm grasp on the lay of the land. Clarity of action begins with attaining a clear understanding of the situation at hand. Therefore, invest time to gather the information, seek feedback if you have to, so that you will be able to make quick decisions, prioritize and trouble-shoot effectively. It’s about gaining a strong understanding about the root cause of the obstacle in order to develop a clear plan of action that includes specific goals, timelines, and metrics for success.


2023 November Bazi

Wu Earth Day Masters will meet with your Direct Wealth in the Heavenly Stems of the November 2023 Bazi Chart. Since Direct Wealth is directly related to productivity, this is the month to prioritize, delegate, outsource, automate, use tools, and set boundaries – all in an effort to make sure that it’s the results that count, not the number of hours. Otherwise, you end up busy being busy… for nothing! (LLB!)


2023 November Bazi

For the Ji Earth Day Master, strategic planning is the name of the game in November 2023. Take the time to consider the long-term impact of your work and how it aligns with your medium- and long-term goals.

About me


I’m sure you know by now that the Dragon is going to be the Grand Duke of 2024. What kind of Grand Duke is this going to be? Will it have a lot of support? What problems could you be facing? Read on…

2024 Dragon Zodiac


2023 was a big nobleman year for you. Did you find help? Were you able to help others? Did you manage to increase your nobility? Well, yes or no, 2024 is here and with it the…

Grand Duke!

As always, please don’t fear the Grand Duke energy. It can bring you breakthroughs. A Grand Duke year does bring problems. But seriously, have we ever had a year where there are no problems to solve? Like, none at all? Is that even remotely realistic?

But in a Grand Duke year, you can’t hide. That’s the effect of the Duke’s Arrival – all eyes on you. So the pressure increases. Because you need to step up and take ownership. How you deal with obstacles and setbacks is now under scrutiny. So you might as well own it, and rock it!

But are you expected to solve problems on your own? Well, apparently not!


This Grand Duke is being supported by the Elegant Seal. This is the ultimate intelligence star as it enhances your mental capacity, mental acuity, talent, creativity and intelligence. In essence, your ability to strategize and to be innovative has been given a big boost.

This Elegant Seal is the star of the diva. So it also lends a patina of charisma. This too can draw attention your way. A word to the wise, it can be a little bit of a diva.


Next, we also have support in the form of a negative star. The Sword Edge tests your resilience, your grace under pressure, your willingness to rise to the challenge. That’s the positive way of using a Sword Edge. The negative way? It causes arguments primarily because of the Elegant Seal – diva-like attitude that won’t listen to nobody.


The Jade Hall represents an increase in value. Traditionally, this is an increase in asset value. It’s still applicable today, but its effect can go beyond tangible assets. Something you own or you yourself increases in value. It can be a skill, a talent, knowledge, a system you own, an idea, something!

So now your value increases, your visibility increases, your ability increases – this leads to the Golden Carriage – people bringing you opportunities because you stepped up. Because you are valuable. Because you provided value. Because you contributed.


The biggest threat lies in the Year Punishment. In the Dragon, this is a self-punishment. Do not under-estimate this. Because it is self-created. Self-sabotage. Let me give you a tactile example of the Dragon’s Self Punishment. Play along please. This is one of the few punishments that can be illustrated by human action.

Make a fist. Grab it real tight. Feel the tension going down your arm. Keep holding it while I briefly explain the Yellow Flag and the Hidden Corpse.

This thing that you are doing now with your fist, will lead to the Yellow Flag which is emotional imbalance. When our emotions are out of whack, inevitably, it will deteriorate our physical wellbeing as well. That’s the warning of the Hidden Corpse.

Is your hand getting tired yet? It’s not comfortable, right? Now relax the grip a little. Instant relief. Now open your fist. Feels better? Way better?

Now imagine gripping that fist in your psyche. That, is the Dragon Self Punishment – the inability to let go. Something that you cannot let go of, will turn the Grand Duke experience into a negative, and trigger the emotional imbalance and the physical issues.

By the way, Hidden Corpse can mean hereditary diseases – so health screening is in order please.

So back to the Year Punishment or Self Punishment. What could be the root cause? It depends. For the Wood Day Masters, this may be caused by an extreme need for control. Control over every aspect of life to the point that you are unable to enjoy life. For Fire Day Masters, this could be the inability to let go of a certain ideal or perfectionism. For Earth Day Masters, this issue revolves around your self-identity. For Metal Day Masters, pride and prejudice may be the problem. For Water Day Masters, this could be adhering to an outdated system or way of doing things.


But please remember, this is not prophetic in nature. Also, this way of presenting the Zodiac stars is just one possible permutation of how things can flow. It can happen in any way. The goal of these annual posts is not to scare you. The goal is to show you what you want to avoid. These are neither promises nor threats! They’re just here to show you possible outcomes. So I hope, that in reading this, you learn to accentuate the positives and sidestep the negatives.


The Year pillar governs our social networks, our industry, our market, social media, the world at large. Duke’s Arrival (all eyes on me), Grand Duke, Elegant Seal (star of the diva), basically visibility has increased. Increase the value of your brand, of course. Be strategic about shaping your reputation in your industry.

What if you were to network? There is a chance that you would meet high value and intelligent people out there. Your job, is to go meet there. Else, how to use the Golden Carriage? Meet the Golden Carriage halfway, go out there and be a part of the movers and shakers in your external world. Be a part of what they are doing.


With the Dragon in your Month pillar, use the Elegant Seal to increase your capacity.  Be on the lookout for projects or opportunities where you can showcase your abilities. Where you can make a big impact. Remember, own it, rock it!

Alternatively, with the Year Punishment, learn to delegate effectively. Share your authority. Because, remember, the Year Punishment this time is about the inability to let go. You know many middle managers don’t train their people? Because of scarcity mindset. So afraid their staff will take over their jobs, that they hoard their knowledge. What happens then? You create a scenario where you cannot be promoted because nobody can do your current job. Train others so that you can divest off some old responsibilities and leave room for new growth to happen.


Dragon in the Day Pillar which governs our personal wellness and close relationships. Particularly this points to your spouse or partner. But hey, it’s Period 9. We first use this for ourselves.

You can use the Jade Hall to figure out who you want to be. What kind of leader you want to be. With the Elegant Seal, take the opportunity to master a skill and then leverage off the skill. No point having a skill that nobody knows.

Of course, let’s give this a traditional spin by applying it to your life partner. In that case, your wife or husband, is the boss this year. Your job, is to say ‘Yes Boss!” Let them have the driving seat for a year.

If you are single and sort of looking, the Elegant Seal as a star of attraction is a little difficult. Because it’s kinda of picky.

But nothing is stopping you from building positive relationships with the people around you!


Dragon in the Hour. Let’s zero in on the Jade Hall. Something in your investment portfolio may have matured. You may want to check it out.

Using the Elegant Seal – go learn something new. Because the intellectual capacity to master a skill has improved!

Get curious about different fields of knowledge. Broaden your mindset and find a way to change the way you see things.

If you have staff working under you, someone is ready for more responsibilities. Find out who, and nurture that person.

Same for children, they are ready for their next growth.
