BAZI DAY MASTERS #4: LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE THROUGH, DING (丁) FIRE

The Yin counterpart to the blazing bright Bing Fire, the Ding Fire is usually described as a gentle candle that lights up the night.

Gentle and refined, Ding Fire Day Masters are discreet and elegant souls, not given to loud personalities and rough characteristics. Sensitive and receptive, the Ding Fire enjoys absorbing new knowledge and is particularly keen on inspiring others.

A single candle may not present much of a threat, but when given the right tinder, that same candle is able to burn down a house. Similarly, the Ding Fire Day Master does not reveal his or her talents quickly. Always unassuming, understated and subtle, the Ding Fire transforms into a trailblazer once their passions are ignited.

Ding Fire is transformative by nature.

People-centred, one of the Ding Fire’s biggest skills is their ability to influence through logic and reasoning. This does not mean that the Ding Fire is cold and purely logical. On the contrary, the Ding Fire has the rare ability to bring warmth and empathy to hard, cold facts.

By that logic, anything that helps people become a better version of themselves, both physically, mentally or spiritually, would be an ideal career or side business for the Ding Fire. The spectrum is extremely broad, but just for the sake of throwing in some examples, think along the lines of personal fitness trainer, self-development gurus, trainers or teachers, are just a sliver of the myriad options available to the Ding Fire.

A sales-driven career will also capitalize on the Ding Fire’s immense persuasive powers. This is especially true when the products or services are intended to aid the customers’ self-development process.

But things are never always that serious in the Ding Fire’s world. Your super power is your ability to inject fun into your projects. ‘Fun’ is a very persuasive selling point and one in which you hold the advantage. So let the sparkling side of your personality shine through!
