Couples will also enjoy better relationship. You may also consider activating this sector for better luck.
3: Three Green Star 三碧 (West)
A star of conflict and best to avoid works and major activity in this area of house. Misunderstanding can happen and for any works required in this sector, it would be best to select a suitable date to avoid issues.
1: One White Star 一白 (Center)
This lucky water star occupies the middle of the flying star chart in 2017 and promises to enhance luck for occupants especially with those with bedrooms in the middle of home.
8: Eight White Star 八白 (East)
The prosperity star arrives in the East. Although this lucky star sits in the East which is promising, this happens to be the same sector which sits the Year Breaker (岁破). As such, much as there may be good things happening, it would be mixed a year with mixed fortune.

Homes or those that has the main door facing this direction will have to take extra precaution. Do avoid any form of renovation and keep this area. The best cure is to keep the area quiet and thus avoiding activating this negative star.

7: Seven Red Star 七赤 (South West)
The Grand Duke (Tai Sui, 太岁) sits in this direction of South West which coupled with untimely Seven Red star would cause issues. It would be strongly recommended to stay conservative and be wary of robberies and physical harm especially if your main door sits in this facing.
Should there be any form of renovation required, it would be most advisable to select a good date to negate and avoid any negativity.
9: Nine Purple Star 九紫 (South East)
This year ensues homes in this sector in the South East direction to enjoy excellent luck and success. Eldest daughter in the family would benefit from this year’s good luck in this direction especially if their bedroom is located in this sector. Those looking for recognition in career would also be benefit greatly from this lucky star!
Being single is frustrating for those looking for their other half. The wait seems forever and you wonder when would time bestow some fortune for the someone to appear.
How do we know?
It lies in our bazi chart showing the spouse luck each of us are bestow with. (On a side note, this is not to be confused with whom some believes of the zodiac of e.g. person born in year of monkey which cannot be with a person clash with year of tiger due to clash.)
What can we see? Should there be a prosperous spouse luck which enhance the chart, the person likely should enjoy a great relationship with the love ones. Happy times and where one enjoys a fulfilled love life.
On the flip side, what happens if the person encounters a less than desirable spouse luck? A few likely scenarios; anything ranging from absence or distant of spouse, poorer eligibility of spouse to unsuccessful relationships. Other include cases where of course, sadly, the person may wait in vain and not find his/her other half.
What about one’s timing you say? Quote an example of someone who never seem to find someone and pop! I finally found someone! These would be cases of spouse luck improvement when your luck pillar turn for the better or cases of combination takes place to allow better spouse luck.
Here is a chart of poor spouse luck where the lady has consulted on spouse matter. Even though there was an appearance of Jia wood (甲) which represents her spouse, she would find it extremely hard to find one due to her chart dynamics. Further confirmation with her confirmed that she had 2 brief relationships though which ended quickly. There was a lack of peach blossom luck in her chart too to enhance her attractiveness.
With this example, it also goes to explain that in bazi, the presence of the representing element does not signify simply the fortune of spouse luck. The same goes to explain wealth and other matters in life.
Now, what do we do if we were to face with such fate? Do we just throw in the towel? Much as it is, in my humble opinion, I always believe things are still in our hands other than simply accepting fate. We can explore and introduce feng shui cures or other life solutions to try to improve.
There is a difference in simply accepting or at least, you put on a good fight to try to change things for better. Singlish style - “No try, no gain”. In the study of bazi, we believe that man holds a third of ability to change the course which means our fate still lies in our own hands.
As such, I hope and wish each of us would still strive to achieve what we wish for. Bazi is after all about knowing our odds so that we can strive to improve odds of our success by choosing the best way. This applies to all matters in life.
Below is a profile of a gentleman who has difficulty with his employee.
At first look of the profile, we can tell that this gentleman has a very strong water (壬) profile.
Born in the Autumn season, the 酉 metal produces and support more water.
What is the character of this person then?
We can tell that the person is likely to be out going and wide network of friends. This person may likely have the character of being seen as boastful and impulsive. From the ten gods profiling, this person has a strong “rob wealth” profile.
As a water profile day stem in 壬 (circled in red), with such strong water, you can be sure this person is likely to be chatty, enjoys a wit and very mobile person.
What can we still tell?
The initial impression of this person can be of a hardworking character; however, this person is in actual, pretty laid back caused by the 酉month. This gentleman would also likely have it tough for 2016 and 2017 (both of which are metal years in monkey 申 and rooster 酉) especially in the 2nd half of the year which was confirmed.
I asked if he belong in the sales or marketing function which the former is correct.
Given the wide network of people he knows and character described above, he would have been unhappy doing any backend role. There is also no “eating god” (represented by wood element) to indicate of an introvert nature.
The few things that the person can do?
Best to focus on work as an individual for this person and avoid metal or water industry. However difficult it might be, it would pay dividend to think and move things a little slower with caution. Relationship with his bosses should also be handled with extra care as there is a tendency to face issue.
The light after all is just ahead. Look at the age 46 range in the luck pillar (in green) – there brings some respite and this person's life would improve with wood (which drains water). Try as can be, he should avoid too much movement or risk for now.
