MARCH 2023: XIN METAL DAY MASTER – HOW TO HUSTLE

For the Xin Metal Day Master, the conditions are ripe in March 2023 to sow the seeds that will eventually help you increase your earning potential. In short, hustle! Here are some suggestions for micro-activities that will further this goal in March 2023:

  1. Brainstorm money-making ideas. With the unconstrained creativity provided by the March 2023 Bazi Chart, this is a good time to bring some friends together to brainstorm wealth-creation ideas.
  2. Launch! Don’t wait for perfect. If you have a side hustle ready to launch, March 2023 is the time to do it. With the market open to new innovations and ideas, the time is ripe for you to make an impact.
  3. Make connections. By nature, Xin Metal Day Masters are also natural networkers. But the question is, who are you networking with? Consider making new connections especially with potential investors.
  4. Make time. All of us are constrained by 24 hours in a day. Making the most efficient use of your time will also help you increase your earning potential.

I agree, hustling has a bad rep. But it’s not about shaking people down for what you want. When you understand that there is a need to treat people well, maintain authenticity in your relationships and treat everyone fairly, hustling becomes an art form!

MARCH 2023: GENG METAL DAY MASTER – NEW GOAL-SETTING

For the Geng Metal Day Master, harvest comes early with the March 2023 Bazi Chart. While others are still sowing, you, on the other hand, find yourself reaping the fruits of your winter crop. This makes March 2023 a good month to build on the foundation of your success. A new goal-setting is in order.

  1. Reflect on your past achievements: Before setting new goals, take some time to reflect on your past achievements and accomplishments. This can help you identify areas where you have succeeded and areas where you may need to improve.
  2. Consider your values and priorities: Your goals should align with your values and priorities. Consider what is most important to you and how you can set goals that reflect those priorities.
  3. Make your goals specific and measurable: Your goals should be specific and measurable so that you can track your progress and determine whether you have achieved them. Use the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goal-setting framework to help you create clear and actionable goals.
  4. Break your goals into smaller steps: Breaking your goals into smaller steps can make them feel more manageable and achievable. This can help you stay motivated and make progress towards your larger goals.
  5. Create a plan: Once you have set your goals, create a plan for achieving them. Identify the actions you need to take, the resources you will need, and the potential obstacles you may encounter along the way.
  6. Track your progress: Regularly track your progress towards your goals and adjust your plan as needed. Celebrate your successes along the way and use any setbacks or challenges as opportunities to learn and grow.

MARCH 2023: JI EARTH DAY MASTER – TEACHING SOMEONE TO FISH

The Ji Earth Day Master is one of the Useful Gods in the March 2023 chart. A pure 7 Killings month can herald the arrival of many people coming to you with their problems. An easy way out would be to solve their problems for them, which is a viable strategy. But let’s take this 7 Killings energy a step further. How about we empower people to solve their own problems instead?

Empowering people to solve problems is about helping them develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to take control of their own situations and find their own solutions.

  1. Provide education and training: Provide people with the education and training they need to develop the skills and knowledge required to solve problems. This can include workshops, courses, and mentoring programs.
  2. Encourage creativity: Encourage people to think outside the box and come up with their own unique solutions to problems. Foster a culture of innovation and creativity that rewards new ideas and approaches.
  3. Foster independence: Encourage people to take ownership of their problems and develop their own solutions. Avoid solving problems for them and instead provide guidance and support as they work towards resolving the issue.
  4. Provide resources: Provide people with the resources they need to solve problems, such as access to information, tools, and technology. This can include providing access to experts, providing funding, or providing access to software tools and other resources.
  5. Celebrate success: Celebrate people’s successes when they solve problems on their own. This can include recognizing their achievements publicly, rewarding them for their efforts, or simply acknowledging their hard work and dedication.
  6. Provide ongoing support: Provide ongoing support and feedback to help people continue to develop their problem-solving skills. This can include providing coaching, mentoring, and regular check-ins to see how they’re progressing.

By empowering people to solve problems, you can help them develop the skills and confidence they need to overcome challenges and achieve their goals. It’s easy to solve other people’s problems for them. But that is a short-term solution. When you can empower people to solve their own problems, that is when you reach a higher status as a leader.

MARCH 2023: WU EARTH DAY MASTER – DECLUTTER YOUR LIFE

For the Wu Earth Day Master, the March 2023 sees a riot of plants camped onto a tiny rocky island. This imagery calls to mind a person carrying the weight of many. Almost like the Punishment of Atlas, you may feel like you are carrying the weight of the world upon your shoulders… a likely scenario given how steady the Wu Earth Day Master can be.

If you are already feeling overwhelmed by the demands of many, getting organized can be a helpful way to regain a sense of control and reduce stress.

  1. Declutter your to-do list: Write down everything that you need to do, prioritize tasks, and break them down into smaller, more manageable steps. This can help you focus on one task at a time and feel less overwhelmed.
  2. Declutter your schedule: Really look into how much time you are dedicating to further your own goals as opposed to doing stuff for other people.
  3. Declutter your things: Eliminate unnecessary items from your surroundings and organize your space. This can help you feel more in control and reduce distractions.
  4. Declutter your bandwidth: Take advantage of tools and apps that can help you organize your life, such as calendars, reminders, and task management apps.

MARCH 2023: DING FIRE DAY MASTER – INTERNAL ALIGNMENT

The March 2023 Bazi Chart can present as a rather challenging environment for the Ding Fire Day Master. It’s hard to start a fire when the wood is wet. And a Ding Fire’s spirits may be dampened when you find it hard to inspire yourself and others.

A pure Indirect Resource month can be a little distracting at best, or even paranoid at worst. However, being aware of this condition, March 2023 is a great month to spend a little time working on your internal alignment.

Internal alignment refers to the process of aligning your thoughts, beliefs, and values with your actions and goals. When you are internally aligned, you have a clear sense of purpose and direction, and you are able to pursue your goals with focus and motivation.

  1. Identify your values: Identify your core values and beliefs. These are the principles and ideals that are most important to you and guide your decision-making.
  2. Clarify your vision: Clarify your vision for your life and work. This is the long-term goal that you want to achieve and the legacy that you want to leave behind.
  3. Stay focused: Stay focused on your goals and vision. Avoid distractions and stay true to your values and beliefs. When you are internally aligned, you are able to stay focused and motivated even in the face of challenges and setbacks.
  4. Reflect and adjust: Regularly reflect on your progress and adjust your plan as needed. Celebrate your successes and learn from your failures, and use this feedback to make adjustments to your plan and stay on track.

Working on internal alignment is an ongoing process that takes time, effort, and consistency. Perhaps invest 10 minutes at the end of every day to review the day’s activities and plan the next day’s routine could be the key to help you make the most of March 2023.

MARCH 2023: YI WOOD DAY MASTER – ONE AMONG MANY

Pretty flowers are meant to be admired. But when you are one among many? It can be a little frustrating and challenging. Especially true if you feel like you’re not standing out or making a significant impact. But… there are strength in numbers… so here’s how you can make the best of March 2023.

  1. Focus on your strengths: Identify your strengths and unique skills, and focus on developing them. This can help you stand out and make a valuable contribution, even if you’re one among many.
  2. Collaborate with others: Look for opportunities to collaborate with others in your group or team. This can help you build relationships and create synergies that can lead to better outcomes.
  3. Network and build relationships: Take the time to get to know the people in your group or team, and build relationships with them. This can help you establish yourself as a valuable member of the group and can lead to new opportunities.

If you are a Yi Wood Day Master, you’d better be networking in March 2023. After all, aren’t you the natural connector? There is safety in numbers. However, do be aware that you may be a little more susceptible to the effects of peer pressure this month.

MARCH 2023: JIA DAY MASTER – WHEN YOUR COMPETITORS REVEAL THEIR STRATEGY…

One of the strategies that the Jia Wood Day Master can apply for the entirety of 2023 is to learn from your competitors. Welp… here’s your best chance! Here is the month where your competitors’ strategies become more easily discernible. So keep your eyes peeled and your radar turned on. Learning from your competitors can be a valuable way to improve your own business. Or at the very least, help you find and create opportunities for differentiation.

  1. Research their strategies and tactics: Study your competitors’ marketing strategies, product development, and customer engagement tactics. Analyze what they’re doing well and what could be improved.
  2. Analyze their strengths and weaknesses: Identify your competitors’ strengths and weaknesses, and compare them to your own. This can help you identify areas where you can improve or differentiate yourself from the competition.
  3. Monitor their online presence: Keep an eye on your competitors’ social media profiles, websites, and blogs. This can help you stay up-to-date on their latest activities and ideas. This is literally the easiest one of all.
  4. Attend industry events: Attend industry events and conferences where your competitors are likely to be present. This can help you learn more about their business strategies and make valuable connections.
  5. Ask for feedback: Ask your customers and clients about their experiences with your competitors. This can help you identify areas where you can improve and provide better value to your customers.
  6. Look for collaboration opportunities: Sometimes, working with your competitors can be more beneficial than competing against them. Look for opportunities to collaborate on projects or initiatives that can benefit both of your businesses.

Remember, learning from your competitors doesn’t mean copying their ideas or strategies. Instead, use their successes and failures as inspiration to improve your own business or creative endeavors. By studying your competitors and analyzing their strengths and weaknesses, you can develop a more competitive edge and provide better value to your customers or audience.

2023 CHINESE ZODIAC: PIG

The key words for the Pig in 2023 are staying low key, private, and humble. A far cry from the glamour of 2022, to be sure. But this could be the year you learn to use your triggers as motivation and drive. Ignore the noise… focus on your execution!

ABOUT THE 2023 CHINESE ZODIAC SERIES

In creating this new series, I’ve endeavoured to shift your perspectives of the positive and negative stars. They are neither promises nor guarantees. Instead, these are tools given to you for 2023, and it’s up to you to choose which one works better for you. The results become more obvious when we match our actions to the effects.

And when we learn to use these stars, that is when life happens for you, instead of happening to you.

Therefore, this post will include descriptions of the effects of the stars, followed by some ideas (or suggestions, if you will), on how the stars can be used. Please note that critical thinking is required on your part. Because without looking at the full information from your unique Bazi Chart, the ideas cannot be customized and must be kept as broad as possible.

THE PIG IN 2023

BACK POKING

The Pig literally had all the money stars in 2022. But along with those positive stars, came a very clear warning against arrogance. They were a caution that pride comes before a fall.

Because in 2023, unfortunately, the Pig literally went from Hero to (almost) Zero. But hold on! Don’t panic yet. There’s a way to circumvent these. Let me first explain their effects.

If you had taken advantage of the positive stars in 2022, the success you enjoyed may have generated jealousy and envy. This is what the Back Poking is telling you. As its name suggests, there may be incidences of slander, defamation, gossip… those unpleasant stuff.

Now, most of the time, we can ignore them. However, certain allegations may need to be addressed.

WHITE TIGER AND SKY WARRIOR

Like the Back Poking, the White Tiger is also an indicator of the presence of petty people. But the White Tiger can be more serious, especially when paired with the Sky Warrior. Together, both indicate that the campaign of misinformation, may be bad enough to cause damage to your reputation. With these two coming together, you need to make sure that all your actions are above-board, leave no room for errors, make sure you cross your ‘t’s and dot your ‘I’s.

People with the Pig energy in our Bazi Charts, in certain aspects of your lives, can be quite easy going, trusting and maybe a little naïve. This is because the energy in this particular branch is a smooth production cycle, so the Pig branch can be a bit laid back. Stay alert to the White Tiger and Sky Warrior. Don’t allow yourself to be backed into a vulnerable position, think through your words and actions, and make sure to always keep your ass covered.

Ironically, the White Tiger can also amp up your execution skills. It lends a degree of aggression to the normally laid back pig. Therefore, please be more alert when you are on the road, because the White Tiger can also indicate the possibility of accidents or injury.

GOAT BLADE AND EARTH SHA

Dealing with petty people can be annoying. Even the most laidback Pig have been known to fight back when cornered. This is where the Goat Blade comes in which carries warnings of irritability and rash behaviour. Anger, offensive retorts, rude replies.

And because of our adverse reaction to all these provocations, now comes the Earth Sha which puts obstacles in our way, especially on the work front. These can be hard-to-define problems – lack of cooperation, passive-aggressive resistance, power plays.

When these four come together, in today’s hyper-connected social media world, this spells cancel culture, virtue signalling, trolls, keyboard warriors.

HEAVENLY CHEF

The one saving grace is your solitary positive star, the Heavenly Chef which presence indicates the ready availability of good food and drinks. With the Heavenly Chef in the picture, you still have the opportunity to continue building strong relationships by sharing meals together!

PIG 2023: SUGGESTED CAREER CHECKLIST

For career professionals, I know that ‘theoretically’ our personal social media profiles ‘should’ be our own. But freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom of consequences. And you and I both know… Cancel Culture, can cost jobs and livelihoods. So please think before you post. In our hyper-connected world, many people have forgotten how to agree to disagree. Especially when mob mentality takes over.

Next, choose your hill to die on. Pick your battles. Decide what is worth fighting for? What is not?

Finally, with the single positive stars, focus your attention on building great relationships. Or else… go the safe route… and for 2023, all you post are food photos.

PIG 2023: SUGGESTED BUSINESS CHECKLIST

For the Business Owners, on the other hand, things can get a bit more interesting. With Cancel Cultlure, people have become more sensitive to the words and actions of businesses and their executives. With the presence of the Back Poking, you need to walk your talk and deliver on what you promise. Be careful of over-using or over-playing virtue signalling in your content marketing.

But with the presence of the White Tiger, also comes a hidden opportunity to create Purpose-driven branding. This type of marketing acknowledges that there is no way to make everyone happy. Therefore, your Brand must stand up for what you believe in.

At the same time, you need to ensure that your management team must be ready to address the concerns raised from the Back Poking. A bland press release written by your Corporate Comms is not enough in this case. With the White Tiger, the written word is not enough. You need to show up.

The boss must be ready to step up, admit fault if necessary, offer redress, apologize when wrong, or doing the opposite and taking a firm stance on specific hot-button issues.

And finally, with the Heavenly Chef, forge quality partnerships. You had the Grand Duke Combination in 2022. Continue to nurture those relationships and align your brand with others that have similar values.

PIG 2023: SUMMARY

This will be a year where you focus on your relationships. On removing detractors? Turning your antis into your fans. Smoothing your relationships with the people around you.

Because, come 2024, the positive stars come back, and we must be free to move and unencumbered by haters.

But… that’s next year’s story. For 2023, let’s see where is your Pig?

WHERE IS YOUR PIG?

YEAR PILLAR

If you have the Pig in your Year which governs your industry, market, social networks, social media followers… basically, other people! From your perspective, they may be hyper-sensitive in 2023.

The career advise holds for this one – think before you post! Especially if you are a public figure such as, an influencer or celebrity. Celebrities like comedians or actors and singers, will be more vulnerable to these because they rely on the goodwill of the public.

While there’s nothing we can do about what people comment in our social media profiles, there is one thing we could do – DON’T POKE THE PIG! Do you really need to comment on a current issue that has nothing to do with you? Is there a need to virtue-signal, for example?

MONTH PILLAR

How about the Pig in your Month pillar which is literally the business or career pillar? At work, be it business or career, 2023 is a year to focus on building strong relationships.

I must admit, the stars in the Pig are a little hard to flip. Because they involve other people’s mouths! Which we can’t control. What we can control is our own reaction to the provocations. How we deal with these provocations.

DAY PILLAR

These stars in the Day Pillar, which governs your personal relationships and your romantic relationship in particular, points to a classic problem of other people meddling or interfering with your relationship. You listen to your friends’ opinions about how your relationship should be, or how your life should be, and then the bickering starts.

Again, this calls for awareness. The realization that, you and your Significant Other, are the only ones in your relationship. And your relationship is unique to both of you! The presence of the White Tiger need not signify fights. It can, actually, indicate a willingness to be more vulnerable and sensitive with each other’s needs. About not pushing buttons unnecessarily. And most importantly, show up for each other in your relationship.

HOUR PILLAR

The Hour pillar governs our children, staff, legacy, investments, ideas, ideals. It can also represent our thoughts, our thinking patterns. If the Pig is in your Hour, do watch out for any signs of a suspicious and ‘victim mindset’.

Here in the Hour pillar, for 2023, the negative stars can inculcate a ‘me-against-the-world’ type of mentality.  If you happen to have more positive stars or more action-driven stars in your external pillar, example maybe the Rat, or the Rabbit, or maybe even the Horse… this mindset could stop you from taking action.

ABOUT ME
