MAXIMIZE EVERY PILLAR #7

What would you do if you held the legendary Excalibur in your hands? How would you use it? With a Geng Wu (庚午) in your Bazi Chart, that’s exactly the gift given to you by the universe.

Seen as metal forged by fire, the Geng Wu is often pictured as a sharp and shiny sword, gleaming with latent power and potency.

With this image comes four key descriptions for the Geng Wu pillar – Authority, Execution, Loyalty and the gift of Foresight.

Maximizing The Geng Wu Day Master: Loyalty Begets Loyalty

The Geng Wu pillar endows you with a natural ability to pick up new skills without appearing to need much formal training. With a smorgasbord of skills to work with, you will need to activate that famed self-discipline to reach your full potential.

This naturally intimidating intellect can come across as being direct and domineering. But people who manage to get past the sharp exterior will find a loyal individual with unwavering idealism.

The Geng Wu Day Master is, above all things, a deeply loyal and righteous person with the unique ability to keep the ego at bay. Decisions are always made based on what’s right instead of what’s expedient or appealing to your self-image.

This is a trait best appreciated by those who truly understand the altruistic nature of your decisions. With that realization, they will return your loyalty with theirs. Sometimes, all we need are a thousand true followers.

 Where Is The Geng Wu?

The Benefits Of Being An Authoritative Leader (Geng Wu in the Year Pillar)

Geng Wu in the Year Pillar will mean that your public will view you as someone hardworking and ambitious. This trait, along with your interest in a wide variety of subjects and activities, will lend you an air of authority. The first impression you give is of someone who doesn’t think too much about being liked.

In recent years, there has been increasing resistance towards authoritarian styles of leadership. But there are some pros. Authoritative leaders are best at providing clarity towards a shared mission, motivating their followers by showing how their contributions come together in the final realization of the goal.

The Competent Executioner At Work (Geng Wu in the Month Pillar)

Geng Wu in the Month Pillar is someone with a no-nonsense approach to work and a direct communication style. This is someone who will take their responsibilities seriously

Direct in communication, this is someone who will take their responsibilities seriously. Creativity will not be your strong suit. Instead, you have a marked preference for the tried and tested route. People with this configuration in the Month Pillar are best at executing plans, able to structure resources in the most efficient and effective manner in pursuit of your business goals.

When energized, this is a pillar that has the drive to constantly improve and overcome any obstacle. The only drawback is an obstinate refusal to accept help. This stems from a desire to accomplish goals on your own and a belief that asking for help is a sign of weakness or heaven forbid, an admission of incompetence. Learning a little give and take will do wonders to smoothen your journey.

The Gift Of Foresight (Geng Wu in the Hour Pillar)

Geng Wu in the Hour Pillar can manifest as foresight, the ‘sixth sense’ for what’s coming. With this in the hour, you must learn to guard against negative thoughts, needless worry and anxiety. Learn to take satisfaction from the present instead of living too much in the future.  

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.
