JANUARY 2023: DING FIRE DAY MASTER

In many ways, the January 2023 Bazi Chart is a great precursor for the 2023 Chart… because there are some similarities between the Gui Chou (January 2023) and the Gui Mao (2023). For the Ding Fire Day Master, January 2023 represents an opportunity to start the year on a fresh slate.

Starting the new year with a clear slate can be a refreshing and empowering experience. It allows us to let go of the past and focus on the present and future, and can help set us up for a positive and productive year. Here are a few steps you can take to start the new year with a clear slate:

  1. Reflect on the past year: Take some time to reflect on the past year and consider what worked well and what didn’t. This can help you identify areas of your life that may need improvement, and can also help you appreciate your accomplishments and successes.
  2. Set goals: Setting goals can help give you a sense of purpose and direction, and can help you stay focused on what’s most important to you. Consider both short-term and long-term goals, and be specific and realistic in your planning.
  3. Let go of negative experiences: While it’s important to reflect on the past, it’s also important to let go of negative experiences and move on. This may mean forgiving others or ourselves, or simply acknowledging that some things are beyond our control.
  4. Practice gratitude: Focusing on what we’re grateful for can help shift our perspective and put things into perspective. Consider keeping a gratitude journal or sharing your gratitude with others to help reinforce this positive mindset.
  5. Take care of yourself: Finally, and perhaps most importantly, remember to take care of yourself as you start the new year. This could mean getting enough sleep, eating well, and finding ways to relax and recharge.

JANUARY 2023: BING FIRE DAY MASTER

When the weather is cold, what is the first thing we look for to find warmth? The sun! And when all eyes are on you, January 2023 is a great month for the Bing Fire Day Master to be conscious of what you are presenting to the world.

Building up a reputation can take time and effort, but it can be a valuable asset in both personal and professional settings. Here are a few steps you can take to build up your reputation:

  1. Be reliable: One of the key aspects of building up a reputation is being reliable. This means following through on your commitments, meeting deadlines, and being dependable. For the routine-driven Bing Fire, this one’s easy-peasy!
  2. Be honest: Honesty is another important factor in building up a reputation. This means being truthful in your interactions with others, and owning up to your mistakes or shortcomings.
  3. Be respectful: Treating others with respect is essential in building up a positive reputation. This means listening to others, being considerate of their feelings and needs, and showing appreciation for their contributions.
  4. Add value: Another way to build up a reputation is by adding value to the lives of others. This could mean offering your expertise or skills, helping others achieve their goals, or simply being a supportive and positive presence in their lives.
  5. Be consistent: Consistency is also important in building up a reputation. This means behaving in a way that is consistent with your values and beliefs, and being consistent in your interactions with others.

2023 CHINESE ZODIAC: TIGER

Fact: the more competent you are, the more responsibilities you get. The more respected you are, the more work or projects come your way. The question is, how many can you handle before you work your fingers to the bone? Therefore, the keyword for the Tiger in 2023, is to delegate!

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 TIGER IN 2023

Tiger 2023

In 2022, taking pride of place, of course, is your role as the Grand Duke! Did you find the opportunity to step up? Did the year bring a lot of exciting challenges? Has there been growth?

SURPASSING PATH AND GOLDEN CARRIAGE

If you had stepped up and accepted the leadership role, this will put you in good position to benefit from the positive stars in the Tiger for 2023. Basically, having positioned yourself as a leader in 2022, you now possibly find yourself being held in high regard by others. This is the gift from the Surpassing Path.

And because of that ‘high regard’, or should I say trust, because people now have more respect for you, here comes the opportunity to take advantage of the Golden Carriage. In a nutshell, the Golden Carriage represents the possibility of gaining wealth opportunities from the relationships that you have built in 2022.

But, to use the Golden Carriage, you must be in the position to accept these opportunities in the first place. Therefore, it is typically the Business Owners who will be better positioned to benefit from the Golden Carriage, as opposed to Career Professionals who may be tied down by employment contracts, or simply a lack of time.

DEATH GOD

Therefore, in 2023 for the Tiger, delegating is imperative! You need to make room in your schedule for relationship-building, space to explore new possibilities, and the very likelihood of more responsibilities. The Death God, as scary as its name may sound, signifies a heavy workload.

Which is a given in any workplace! The more competent you are, the more responsibilities you shoulder. Isn’t it?

BATH AND CASCADING CLOUD

However, as indicated by the Bath star, this heavy workload may be self-inflicted. This star indicates feelings of insecurity or helplessness. In other words, you may find yourself taking on responsibilities because you feel like you don’t have a choice. Example, company has downsized and to keep your job, you feel like you have no choice but to take on extra responsibilities.

When this happens, resentment starts brewing. That’s the message from the Cascading Cloud – passive-aggressive behaviour. Therefore, for those with the Tiger in your Bazi Chart, please prioritize time for rest and self-care.

SICKNESS CHARM

What happens when you have such a heavy workload that you end up working long hours? Couple that with the feelings of helplessness from the Bath, and the resentment of the Cascading Cloud, there is a danger that you may work yourself sick. The Sickness Charm is an illness star. Very likely, this would be stress-related illnesses.

If you start feeling excessive anger or a difficulty in sustaining happiness, it’s time to take a break. That is why this video for the Tiger is entitled The Delegator!

When we put the negative stars together, there seems to be a need for a conscious effort to train and delegate.

TIGER 2023: SUGGESTED CAREER CHECKLIST

Tiger 2023

Making conscious use of the Tiger’s positive stars calls for strategic and focused relationship-building. Therefore, training and delegating is also necessary to allow you the time to build relationships.

TIGER 2023: SUGGESTED BUSINESS CHECKLIST

Tiger 2023

How about the Business Owners? This is a good chance to turn your clients into fans. To give such good value, that your customers bring you further opportunities to collaborate. This is best for those in the B2B type of businesses.

Start off by providing a service, which then leads to a long-term contract maybe? And then as the relationship deepens, opportunity to work together? Or your clients recommend you to others!

To create this type of relationship, you need to invest time into building that ‘bond’. Here’s a very common scenario in businesses that are very technical or knowledge-specific. When a top sales person leaves, the clients… follow!

Therefore, as a business owner, don’t get so caught up with the delivery of service that you neglect to cultivate a relationship with your clients!

WHERE IS YOUR TIGER?

YEAR PILLAR

Using the positive stars in the Tiger is easiest if you have the Tiger in your Year Pillar. Out there, in your industry, social network, friends, acquaintances, the world at large… are people who are working very, very hard. Overworked people, in fact!

Your job, is to get out there, and see if the service you offer can help them take the load off. These stars are especially good for those in the done-for-you type of industries.

What if you are a career professional? This could be the start of your side gig?

MONTH PILLAR

If the Tiger governs your Month pillar which represents career and business, all the more reasons to delegate and make time for relationship-building. Within the existing relationships connected to your business or career, there are wealth opportunities.

These could be turnkey clients, suppliers, people within your professional association, anyone really connected directly to your work.

DAY PILLAR

If, however, the Tiger governs your day pillar which represents yourself, your spouse and close personal relationships, please prioritize self care.

Busy is as busy does, but please make time for rest!

HOUR PILLAR

Tiger in the Hour will govern your children, your staff, investments, ideas, ideals, and ambitions.

For the parents among usare you being a Tiger Mom/Dad? Are you pushing your kids to excel as opposed to encouraging growth?

For the managers or business owners, do consider conducting a job description review. Perhaps some of the things your staff are still doing are now redundant?

And as for investments, with the Golden Carriage, be intentional about exploring business opportunities that come your way! You may have the chance to own equity in certain businesses.

ABOUT ME

It’s been a long article, hasn’t it? If you’ve gotten this far, thank you!

A little about me. My name is Paulynne Cheng and I am a Bazi and Feng Shui practitioner with a bias for career and business development. Mind you, I’m not a business guru or some such.

JANUARY 2023: YI WOOD DAY MASTER

Only the hardiest plants survive the harsh winters. While the ground is frozen solid, the Yi Wood lies dormant, in hibernation. But beneath that stillness, there is still growth underground. Never discount the resilience of the Yi Wood! Like the hardy plant that represents you, January 2023 is a great time to focus on self development for the Yi Wood Day Masters.

Self development, like a hardy plant in winter, requires resilience and determination in the face of challenges and adversity. Just as a hardy plant must weather the harsh conditions of winter, we must also find ways to thrive and grow despite the difficulties we may face in life.

One way to cultivate self development like a hardy plant in winter is to set clear goals and work towards them consistently, even when faced with setbacks or obstacles. This can involve setting aside time for personal growth activities, such as learning new skills or pursuing new hobbies, and staying focused on your long-term goals.

Another important aspect of self development is to maintain a positive attitude and mindset, even in the face of challenges. This can involve finding ways to stay motivated and inspired, and seeking out support and guidance from others when needed.

Finally, it is important to take care of your physical and emotional well-being, as these are key factors in your overall sense of well-being and ability to thrive. This can involve engaging in activities that nourish your body and mind, such as exercising, eating a healthy diet, and getting enough rest.

Overall, cultivating self development like a hardy plant in winter requires a combination of focus, determination, and self-care. By taking these steps, you can weather the winter of life and continue to grow and thrive.

JANUARY 2023: GUI WATER DAY MASTER

As sluggish as the January 2023 Bazi Chart may be, it still represents opportunities for micro strategies for each of the 10 Day Master. For the Gui Water? Grab a friend! Go on an adventure together! This is the best month for the Gui Water Day Master to create some bonding.

JANUARY 2023 MONTHLY FORECAST

It’s January 2023 and things seem to be moving at a snail’s pace. The January 2023 Bazi chart feels like we’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop, and everything is in a state of stasis. It can be frustrating to feel like we’re stuck in a rut, but it’s important to remember that this is just a temporary phase. Here are a few suggestions for getting through a sluggish January:

January 2023 Bazi

Geng Metal and Xin Metal Day Masters:

Find small ways to stay active and engaged: Even if you’re feeling stuck, it’s important to find ways to stay active and engaged. This could mean taking a walk, trying a new hobby, or volunteering your time. By finding small ways to stay active, you can help keep your energy up and your spirits high.

Wu Earth and Ji Earth Day Masters:

Set goals and work towards them: Another way to get through a sluggish month is to set small, achievable goals and work towards them. This can help give you a sense of purpose and direction, even when things feel slow.

Jia Wood and Yi Wood Day Masters:

Take care of yourself: It’s important to remember to take care of yourself, especially during times when you’re feeling stuck. This could mean getting enough sleep, eating well, and finding ways to relax and recharge.

Ren Water and Gui Water Day Masters:

Reach out for support: If you’re feeling overwhelmed or down, it can be helpful to reach out for support. Talk to a friend, family member, or a mental health professional if you need to. You don’t have to face these challenges alone.

Bing Fire and Ding Fire Day Masters:

Create a daily routine that schedules variety into your life. Ideally, this schedule should be aimed at helping you create some work-life balance as the long dark days of winter continues.

SUMMARY: JANUARY 2023

Overall, January 2023 may feel like a sluggish month, but it’s important to remember that this is just a temporary phase. By finding small ways to stay active and engaged, setting goals, taking care of yourself, and reaching out for support, you can get through this challenging time and come out stronger on the other side.

2023 CHINESE ZODIAC: RAT

After a year as the self-starter of 2022, the Rat must be ready to launch into stratosphere. Because in 2023, you are undoubtedly, the comeback kid of the Water Rabbit!

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 RAT IN 2023

Rat 2023

2022, as far as the Rat was concerned, was a year of self-cultivation. It was a year for us to create our own opportunities. Because there were no external support or external opportunities. This load of negative stars were here to teach us that we are not helpless. They were here to show us how to shift our perspectives and create opportunities even when there were none.

So the Rat is the undisputed comeback kid of 2023. With a smorgasbord of positive stars littered with words we like to read – Prosperity, Fortune Virtue, and many more! But before we get there, we must have successfully changed our perspectives.

DRAPES, CURLED TONGUE AND CROSSING SHA

Drapes talk about emotional instability. If you are emotionally vulnerable, it could be a concern. Curled Tongue and Crossing Sha are miscommunications and potential for arguments.

If you are the type who tends to intellectualize your emotions, I doubt you would even feel the presence of these three.

YEAR PUNISHMENT

However, it’s the Year Punishment, that with your permission, I would like to share a little more detail about.

When the Rat and the Rabbit meets, they form a type of punishment called the Uncivilized Punishment. This punishment conveys a feeling of being victimized.

In the traditional texts, the explanation for Uncivilized Punishment can be scary. It can manifest as assault, harassment, incest and even rumours and gossip of a carnal nature. Now before you start freaking out… it does not have to happen! I repeat: it does not have to happen! It’s just a warning of a potential threat. That’s all.

Some Masters would describe the Uncivilized Punishment as a problem caused by morality. But to me, Uncivilized Punishment is a problem about boundaries and power imbalance. After all, assault, particularly sexual assault, harassment, stalking, and incest… are at its most basics, a breach of personal boundaries. Somebody has overstepped their bounds. Now mind you, this could pan out both ways – the person who is suffering the Uncivilized Punishment could either be the victim OR the aggressor.

Rat 2023

Since the Rat will be facing an Uncivilized Punishment in 2023, here are some suggestions:

  1. Let’s ensure that we keep all our dealings professional. Since this punishment can manifest in the form of rumours and gossip, and since we are all surrounded by spy cams everywhere these days, it would be in our favour to keep all our dealings professional. No improprieties. Not a whiff!
  2. Ladies would already know this. Most women already practice this. Be vigilant about personal safety. All those rules – you know, at a party, get your own drinks, don’t lose sight of our drinks, if walking late at night, try to stay to the populated areas. I’m not saying don’t party! Just make sure your safety precautions are in place.
  3. Since the Uncivilized Punishment conveys a sense of victimization, it is particularly important in 2023, for those with the Rat in our Bazi Charts to establish, communicate, and stand firm on the topic of our boundaries – particularly personal boundaries and personal space. Because, when we add all the negative stars together (Year Punishment, Drapes, Curled Tongue, and Crossing Sha), when we consolidate their effects into one, this can possibly spell Emotional Blackmail and Gaslighting.

But now that we’ve dealth with the punishment, it’s time to look forward to all the goodies that are coming to the Rat in 2023. So back to the positive stars!

HEAVENLY VIRTUE

The Heavenly Virtue is a blessings star. It helps dissolves the negative stars, and remove obstacles. To effectively use the Heavenly Virtue, requires us to install new beliefs.

Now that we’ve broken out of Prison, using the Heavenly Virtue calls for new goal-setting, and a re-alignment of our actions.

THRIVING

The Thriving star, simply, energizes! It gives us this extra boost of courage and energy. When we have this additional boost of courage and energy, we behave in a more confident manner, leading to potentially, wealth opportunities brought to you by your friends.

These two stars, the Heavenly Virtue and Thriving, are the jumping off point for a successful 2023.

FORTUNE VIRTUE AND PROSPERITY STAR

To enhance the effect of the Heavenly Virtue and Thriving Star, comes two more money stars. The Fortune Virtue brings wealth opportunities and enhances the effects of the other Wealth stars. How does it enhance? By working hand-in-hand with the Prosperity Star, it brings us many opportunities to enrich our network. Here comes the chance to build strong and mutually beneficial relationships.

So far, these four money stars do not say that we will suddenly get rich. How I wish! Right? What it says is that, the contacts we have may bring us opportunities. We need to be ready to say yes, take action, and nip problems in the bud, and the Heavenly Virtue will gift us with a relatively smooth year ahead.

RED MATCHMAKER, PEACH BLOSSOM AND SALTY POOL

Building relationships will be easy for the Rat in 2023. Our likability has zoomed up by 1000%! All these likability stars! The Red Matchmaker brings relationship luck. For those who are single and looking, pay attention. It brings this flash of recognition. Somehow, people just like you!

Same for the Peach Blossom! There is this aura of likability about you.

And finally, the Salty Pool! Personal desirability has increased. Typically, it points to fleeting romances, short and exciting flings. Things get exciting on the dating front.

RAT 2023: SUGGESTED CAREER CHECKLIST

On the career front, 2023 would be a good year to review your career goals and then, create alliances within your industry or organization to grow together.

For the negative stars, as always, this is an issue about boundaries. Not only should we communicate our boundaries to others, at the same time, please be mindful to respect other people’s boundaries as well.

We get this sorted, likability increases. Be sure to keep all your dealings professional.

RAT 2023: SUGGESTED BUSINESS CHECKLIST

Rat 2023

For the Business Owners, these positive stars are a great opportunity to create new income streams for your business. Specifically, new projects brought to you by your contacts. These stars don’t really talk about partnerships. They talk about people giving you opportunities.

To deal with the negative stars? Filter your customer list. All business owners understand this. Some clients have got to go.

Alternatively, still on the negative stars, you could take this opportunity to ensure a safe and comfortable environment in your workspace. This would be a positive way to dissipate the effects of the negative stars.

And finally, with the likability stars, you need to take the lead in the sales pitch. People like you. They want to do business with you. Awesome!

WHERE IS YOUR RAT?

YEAR PILLAR

Rat 2023

If you have the Rat in your Year Pillar, the people in your industry, friend list, LinkedIn connections, contacts, acquaintances are brimming with projects and wealth opportunities. In fact, it’s almost a party out there!

Your job? Join them. Initiate discussions.

This can work for both the business owner and the career professional. For the career professionals, especially, this may be the start of your side gig or your own consultancy!

MONTH PILLAR

Rat 2023

With the Rat in your Month pillar which is literally the business or career pillar, this is the year to supercharge your career. Be on the lookout for career growth opportunities be it internally or externally.

Talk to your friends about your career plans. They may know someone who needs someone just like you!

For the business owners, when your business has reached the thriving stage, this could be the best year to re-innovate your business model.

DAY PILLAR

Rat 2023

The Day Pillar governs your personal relationships, particularly in 2023, there seems to be a lot of support for romantic relationships.

For those who are already in committed relationships, 2023 could be the year you bring back that ‘spark’ that may have lost its lustre in the day-to-day grind.

For the singletons, perhaps, an existing friendship is ready to transition into something more?

HOUR PILLAR

Rat 2023

The Hour pillar governs staff. Business owners, this may be the year you create a safe working environment where every one of your staff can thrive.

Parents, from your perspective, your children are thriving. This is a great year to encourage them to explore new horizons.

The Hour Pillar also governs investments. Be on the lookout for new investment opportunities that you can capitalize on.

2023 CHINESE ZODIAC: ROOSTER

If you have the Rooster in your Bazi Chart, come 2023, it’s time to take on the Year Breaker role.

Since around 2019, the Rooster had been blessed with a run of positive stars. However, in this crucial Year Breaker period, unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of external support. Almost akin to a temporary feast-famine cycle. In other words, without external support, it’s up to you to create your opportunities in 2023.

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 ROOSTER IN 2023

Rooster 2023

YEAR BREAKER

A Year Breaker is but a fancy name for a clash of energies affecting your Bazi Chart. A clash is very straight forward. It simply means, change! Often viewed as a negative, because from the traditional perspective, change is always unwelcome. A good life in the olden days, literally translates into a long and boring life.

But in today’s world, a Year Breaker brings power to propel us out of our plateau. Without change, there can be no growth.

A Year Breaker is only negative when we resist change. If you open yourself up to change, and learn to reframe your perspectives (think opportunities, not problems; think challenges, not obstacles) you may find that 2023 could be an exciting and fulfilling year.

Because this Rooster-Rabbit clash is clashing outwards (your Metal clashing out to the Wood), the good news is, there is some element of control which signifies that you still get to decide which aspects of your life needs changing.

But there are signs that maybe, you will face some internal resistance to change.

OBSTACLES, PRISON INMATES AND SKY SADNESS

Under the influence of the Obstacles star, you may be more easily influenced by the negativity out there. Somehow, you are more willing or susceptible to negativity which may start a downward spiral.

If you find yourself sucked in by the Obstacles star, the Prison Inmates may also be activated. This star describes a feeling of entrapment, of feeling physically, mentally or even emotionally trapped. And that is when the Sky Sadness (representing depression and other emotional issues), comes along to join the pity-party.

Together, the Obstacles, Prison Inmates and Sky Sadness stars combine to form the sunk-cost fallacy. More on this later.

GREAT CONSUMER

The Year Breaker comes hand in hand with its twin, the Great Consumer. It represents an increase in expenses. If the Year Breaker represents problems, then the Great Consumer is the opportunity to use money to resolve those problems. Therefore, it is always best to keep some budget aside for contingencies.

But where could this money possibly be needed? There are some clues.

CALAMITY SHA

The Calamity Sha is a disaster star. It could mean that you somehow find yourself trapped in a disaster area such as floods, earthquakes, volcano eruptions, etc! It could also mean potential damages to your property or home. Therefore, as you begin the year, why not take the trouble to inspect your home for any damages that you can repair immediately. Since the Calamity Sha is in the Rooster, prioritize areas in the West sector of your house.

SALTY POOL

The other way that money could flow out? Salty Pool – the star of instant gratification which translates to money flowing out due to impulse purchases.

However, there is some good news here. The Salty Pool is actually a type of Peach Blossom star. It’s often viewed also as a negative due to its connotations of unbridled lusts or desires. If you are able to control the effects of the Salty Pool, it can act like a Peach Blossom star, and increase your desirability and likability.

JADE HALL AND MONTH EMPTINESS

But is there support? Yes! The Jade Hall signifies that something you own, be it a material thing, asset, investment, knowledge, skill, talent, anything really… has increased in value.

Perhaps more importantly, you also have the support of the Month Emptiness. This is a rather neutral star. What it does is that it connects us to the universal energy. It is, in fact, a wish-fulfilling star. Its presence is asking you to connect to your inner self or higher self.

But why would I describe a wish-fulfilling star as neutral? Shouldn’t they be good? It depends! When given the chance for your thoughts to manifest your reality, it’s only a good thing when you are positive thinker! Negative thinkers will find the reality manifested is as unpleasant as they expected!

WHERE IS YOUR ROOSTER?

 YEAR PILLAR

Rooster 2023

A clash to the Year Pillar is quite easy to deal with. List down all the energy vampires, takers, whiners, and complainers in your friend list… and delete, block, unfollow!

MONTH PILLAR

Rooster 2023

What if the Rooster is your Month Pillar that represents your career and business? Look for certain parts of your job or business that is now redundant and keeping you tied down. 2023 may be the time to divest and prioritize more time on your core skills or core business.

DAY PILLAR

Rooster 2023

Because the Day Pillar represents our close relationships, certain parts of your lifestyle or household routine can be changed for the better. A second honeymoon, anyone?

HOUR PILLAR

Rooster 2023

Rooster in the Hour Pillar which governs our children, employees, investments, ideas or ideals. In terms of employees, your staff could be getting comfortable in their roles and getting set in their ways. Perhaps it’s time for a reshuffle to challenge everyone to take on new growth.

ROOSTER 2023: SUGGESTED CAREER CHECKLIST

The first rule of the Year Breaker, be willing to drop the redundant roles. Remember the sunk-cost fallacy? Sometimes, we cling on to roles that are no longer serving our career growth. Often, we do this for no other reason apart from the fact that we’ve been doing that for years. Perhaps you have outgrown them? Is it time to pass it to someone more junior?

Secondly, of course, please budget for contingencies. If you feel that you can do so, consider allocating some funds to invest in yourself! Maybe it’s time to acquire a different or new skill?

Thirdly, beware the sunk-cost fallacy that could be keeping you tied to a miserable job. It’s up to you if you want to change jobs this year, but at least start taking steps towards changing your perspective of your career.

Finally, with the Jade Hall, identify your super skill. When negotiating for an increment or promotion, this is your leverage!

ROOSTER 2023: SUGGESTED BUSINESS CHECKLIST

For the Business owners, let’s start by looking into the sunk cost fallacy. What is no longer serving your business? Are they projects? Divisions? Clients? Products? Services?

Next, something has grown in value. Your job is to identify what that something is. It could be physical assets such as property that is owned by your business. Their value has matured and this may be the time to divest and keep your cash flow healthy?

Thirdly, with the Year Breaker, be willing to pivot your product or service.

And finally, with the Great Consumer, Calamity Sha and Salty Pool, please keep an eye on your cash flow and stay liquid for any contingencies.

THE ROOSTER 2023 IN A NUTSHELL

When this collection of stars are seen as a whole, they are encouraging a sense of detachment. Mind you, every practitioner will have different interpretations because we all have different perspectives. While the core effects of the stars remain the same, every one of us will have a different view of how to use these stars. To me, they spell detachment.

With attachment, change can be very painful. But here’s the thing, you become very powerful, when you learn to detach. Because in that detachment comes objectivity and rationality. Am I asking you to intellectualize your feelings? Yes, a little! For 2023 at least, for the Rooster, there needs to be a rather zen-like approach to life.

ABOUT ME

It’s been a long article, hasn’t it? If you’ve gotten this far, thank you!

A little about me. My name is Paulynne Cheng and I am a Bazi and Feng Shui practitioner with a bias for career and business development. Mind you, I’m not a business guru or some such. My role, is to interpret the energies of your Bazi Chart and the corresponding 2023 energies for you.

Should we meet for an onward conversation, my goal is to help you align your actions, not just to the effects of the stars, but also to the flow of energies in your unique Bazi Chart.

When we do that, you really go with the flow and things become easier because you are no longer fighting the energies, but using the energies.

HACK MY 2023

It’s that time of the year again when the New Year Resolution looms. In 2023, what goals are you looking to achieve? Have you created an actual plan to turn your New Year Resolution into reality? Myself, Jonath Lee and Shamaine Ho (the Talk3Talk4 trio), are proud to present again, our annual workshop – Hack My 2023.

I know you have questions…

WHAT IS HACK MY 2023?

Hack My 2023

Hack My 2023 is a one-off annual workshop where we give you the tools, the cheatsheets, and the related information from Bazi, Qimendunjia, and Feng Shui to create a detailed action plan to turn dreams into reality.

It’s akin to getting a Bazi Consult, but in this case, you learn to self-diagnose. Give us 5 hours of your time, and we give you the shortcuts you need to apply the same methodology for, not just 2023, but also the coming years.

IS HACK MY 2023 A BAZI COURSE?

Hack My 2023

No, it’s not designed to turn you into a Bazi Consultant overnight. In fact, it would be crazy to think that we can teach a Bazi Course within 5 hours. What it is, is a workshop that helps you extract relevant information from your Bazi and Qimen charts. This is why the workshop comes packed with detailed cheatsheets.

WHAT WILL I STAND TO GAIN FROM HACK MY 2023?

Hack My 2023 is designed to be a zero-to-user workshop.

Here’s what you stand to gain:

➡️  Discover what has already been given to you

➡️  Discover the dynamics of 2023 and how it affects you specifically

➡️  Discover your strengths and opportunities to craft your strategy to make 2023 your best year ever

➡️  Discover your theme for 2023

➡️  Find out if there are any actions that MUST be undertaken in the coming year

➡️  Fine tune your plan for 2023

➡️  Find out what you can maximize

➡️  And most importantly, a detailed monthly planner that pulls together Bazi, Qi Men Dun Jia and Feng Shui to align Heaven, Earth, and Man for you.

Hack My 2023

WILL I BE REQUIRED TO SIGN UP FOR MORE COURSES AFTER THIS?

Not at all! As mentioned, Hack My 2023 is a one-off event. There will be no upsell or cross-sell. Our goal is to help you use your Bazi Chart (primarily) to create a final action plan for 2023.

I’M KEEN, WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
