Prof. Huynh was recently interviewed on a prominent Vietnamese television channel in San Jose. We’re working on the English translation! 🙂 Clicking on the photo will take you to the 11-minute segment.
Prof. Huynh, please tell us what industry belongs to the elements of wood, fire, water, metal or earth element. Thank you
Fields of the wood element are closely related, quite obviously, with industries that deal with flowers, vegetables, journalism, agriculture, textiles, fashion, plantations, education, publishing, construction ….
Fields of fire element ( think how the bright sun, which is the classical symbol for yang fire, shines its light on everyone and the reach is very wide ) would include the power-generation industries, energy, fuel, entertainment, movies, television, radio, restaurant, shop lights, the food industry, metaphysical industries such as feng shui, destiny reading, palm reader etc..
Fields of earth element ( as a loose guideline, think what comes out of the earth ) is contracts, development owners, real estate, insurance, mining, marble, stone, chemical related. …
Fields of Metal element such as engineering, computing, heavy industry, keys, jewelry, electronics, photography, banking…
Fields of Water element as transportation, communications, information, tourism, fishing, liquor stores, financing, coffee shop, spring water, etc. …
Why do we need to know what these elements signify in terms of professional career and industries?
If you can pinpoint what are your favorable element, you are more likely to not only have an interest in that industry but have strong skills and characteristics to be more successful in that career. It gives you the opportunity to realize the path of least resistance – why be a fish that swims upstream when there are avenues that are easier paths to success?!
Now, how do you know what is your favorable element?
You need to analyze your whole birth chart. This includes the date, month and year of birth. Though it’s preferable to have your hour of birth, but even without it we can still figure out your favorable elements. This is why some people may have been born the same year but in different months, thus their destiny is also completely different. The Four Pillars of Destiny (Bazi) system is divided into 60 different date of birth of the entire universe and each day has a different energy.
For example, people who was born on Yin day, (wood element), in the spring (Wood prosperity), this Day Master is quite strong so needing of Fire element to balance, and who was born on Yin day that is flower or grass, they also need sun to blooming beautiful.
Another example, people who was also born at Yin day (wood element) in the fall (Metal prosperity), the weak Day Master is being controlled by Metal, so it needs Water to balance. Water element also weakens Metal, as growth Wood (Day Master) to strengthen Day Master, therefore bringing more luck.
If the chart have special stars such as Heavenly Doctor, Heavenly Wealth, Academic Stars etc, these also point to potential career paths that can bring a lot of success.
A: This is simply a feng shui myth. If someone moves away it is not because of the room being above a garage. It can be merely a coincidence or the bedroom may have its energy effected by the doors that lead to the room. There are many bedrooms above the garage is made, does that mean a lot of homeowners don’t stay in their house? That is quite absurd isn’t it? In our opinion, the bedroom above the garage is usually not good a good idea for 2 reasons:
1. Health: The carbon monoxide can seep into the room, affecting the room occupant’s health such as allergies, cough, etc. ..
2. Not peaceful: the bedroom is a place to rest and needs to be a quiet space. The sound of the garage opening and closing will make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep, again leading to health concerns in the long run.
New feng shui schools believe that the room in the garage is not considered to have a floor, and thus they normally suggest to paint the floor using earth colors as beige or brown. However, according to Xuan Kong Flying Star, whether a bedroom is good or bad depends more on the Sheng Qi of that room and what is the influence from its natal chart. So in this case, not all bedrooms above garages are bad. We need to take proper direction, plot the chart of the house based on its proper period and analyse the Sheng Qi of that room. Feng shui remedies can then be recommended accordingly.
