#18 XIN SI (辛巳): THE GIFT OF ATTENTION

Attention is the new currency. Agree? In that case, the Xin Si (辛巳), which brings with it the gift of commanding attention, must be one of the most sought-after pillar in our modern-day, digital world.

What do you see when you think of a piece of exquisitely carved jade? Cool and smooth to the touch. Hold it up to the light and watch the light dance in its emerald depths. Your eyes linger on its glassy perfection. The essence of the Xin Si pillar is embodied in that piece of jade – class, sophistication and elegance.

Maximizing The Xin Si (辛巳) Day Master: The KOL

This is a blessed pillar in many ways. Sitting on its own Direct Officer, the Xin Si has the natural ability to command authority and attention. This pillar is also ably supported by its own Rob Wealth and Direct Resource stars, which represents the ability to network and harness the support of the people around them.

With these elements in place, the best way to maximize a Xin Si Day Master becomes obvious. Put yourself in the position of receiving attention. No thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, most of us have experienced lockdown in one form or another. Perhaps like me, you may have spent time watching motivational videos online? Notice how the ability to whip people into a frenzy of positivity is now a very, very lucrative trait?

I don’t know about you guys, but literally ever since this lockdown happened, my Facebook and IG news feed has been flooded by some guru or trainer saying, “Hey, I want to show you the secret to…”.

Some are genuine. Others? Maybe not so much.

As a Xin Si Day Master, you enjoy learning. And, sharing that knowledge to your friends and social network is already something that comes naturally to you. It’s time to amplify that effort. Trust in your own knowledge, wit, creativity and strong communications skills to build up an audience quickly. Your biggest asset? The Xin Si has a warm and friendly demeanour that makes you perfectly relatable.

Always eager to grab at everything that life has to offer, you risk spreading yourself too thin. This is the biggest block to the Xin Si’s success, the irresistible urge to bite off more than you can chew.

Where Is The Xin Si (辛巳)?
Perfectly Relatable (Xin Si 辛巳 In The Year Pillar):

The relatability of the Xin Si in the Year Pillar can be a significant advantage in your business or career. First of all, know that the Xin Si is witty and humorous. It’s simply a pillar that is enjoyable to be around.

Also, let’s bear in mind that the Xin Metal is one of the two networking stems in Bazi. This helps you forge connections and create opportunities for positive interactions.

But then again, let’s be absolutely clear right here about the term networking. It’s not about reaching out only when you need to ask for help. It’s about how you can be helpful to the person you are reaching out to.

Structure and Order (Xin Si 辛巳 In The Month Pillar):

Much like the Geng Chen post before this, the Xin Si is not a follower. Knowing instinctively how to command attention, knuckling down under the authority of others is not the Xin Si pillar’s cup of tea. The Xin Si pillar likes structure and order, and once firmly strapped into the driving seat, enjoys using their creativity to help others find solutions for their problems.

Here in the month pillar, the Xin Si pillar brings a strong leaning towards perfectionism at work. This may manifest as someone bossy with a hyper-critical eye and overly-opinionated.

To achieve the maximum, realize that honey can trap flies more effectively than vinegar. Developing your people persuasion skills will help you achieve your goals by getting the best out of the people around you.

FOMO Flightiness (Xin Si 辛巳 In The Hour Pillar)

Nonetheless, the Xin Si can appear to be a tad flighty or even scatterbrained. So many interesting things happening, the Xin Si is particularly susceptible to the FOMO syndrome, the Fear Of Missing Out.

As such, the Xin Si tries to everything all at once and has a hard time setting priorities. Stop! Breathe! Slow that churning brain down!

With the Xin Si in the Hour Pillar, you must find a way to calm that skittish mind in order to gain better clarity and thereby make better decisions. I’m not asking you to meditate for hours on end. Simple 2-minute breathing exercises can help when you are feeling tense and nervous because you have taken on too much.

As always, a final caveat. Without the ability to see the full chart, I must stress that the suggestions in this article are broad recommendations based on a single pillar. To pinpoint specific issues or to co-create solutions tailor-made for you, please feel free to drop me a line.
