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.
