Decoding the Science of Getting Rich – Part 1: Wealth Capacity

Estimated Reading Time: 5 mins

Bazi (八字), or the Four Pillars of Destiny, is a foundational concept in Imperial Feng Shui. Its well-developed principles are built on a deep understanding of the movement of planetary stars, the duality of Yin and Yang (阴阳) and the Five Elements (五行).

Every Bazi chart is unique, focusing on the characteristics that define each person. A Bazi chart builds upon an individual’s birth year, month, date and hour of birth to interpret their destiny, personality, potential relationships, strengths, weaknesses and opportunities.

The Bazi charts of celebrities and famed entrepreneurs have fascinated Bazi enthusiasts worldwide who are curious to understand the similarities and connections between attributes and traits in their charts. According to the principles of Imperial Feng Shui, three critical factors in our Bazi charts govern our financial success, namely our wealth capacity, luck and path.

What is Wealth Capacity?

Wealth capacity encapsulates the dynamics of an individual’s financial journey throughout their lifetime and their potential for accumulating wealth. Beyond this, wealth capacity includes a broader spectrum of financial opportunities, determining the opportunities, constraints, and income potentials that shape one’s economic trajectory.

According to Imperial Feng Shui, wealth is derived from both Yin and Yang income sources. Yang income sources are defined by direct wealth accumulation, such as through work and business endeavours. Conversely, Yin income success encompasses indirect wealth accumulation, such as gains from trading and investments.

Why is Luck Important?

In Imperial Feng Shui, luck is determined by the harmony of the Five Elements in your Bazi chart, with good luck resulting from their balance. Luck governs our success in various aspects of our careers and businesses, and may refer to the individuals we encounter, the events we experience, and the decisions we make throughout different life stages. Analysing an individual’s Bazi chart allows us to identify auspicious and inauspicious elements and the current state of their luck.

To help one understand the dynamic role of luck and wealth capacity in shaping an individual’s destiny, we will illustrate this concept through three different scenarios:

  • Individuals in good luck cycles, but have limited wealth capacities tend to lead a peaceful, yet financially limited life. While they do not experience major ups and downs, they may tend to remain stagnant or reach a plateau in the business or career.
  • Individuals with large wealth capacities but lacking luck in supporting their wealth creation prospects may find themselves watching golden opportunities slip through their fingertips.
  • Exceptional individuals blessed with both good luck and substantial wealth capacities emerge as influential leaders within their respective industries.

The Bazi chart reveals six elements: Weak, Strong, Vibrant, Fake Vibrant, Follower, and Fake Follower. Many Bazi practitioners focus solely on identifying strong or weak elements, which constitutes a significant flaw for many practitioners.

Correctly identifying weaker elements and harmonising them through the application of Imperial Feng Shui treasures is crucial. This process aims to achieve a state of consistent good luck, leading to encounters with benefactors in professional or business spheres, job offers with promising career trajectories, harmonious relationships, substantial windfalls, and consistently high returns on investments.

What does Path entail?

In the context of Imperial Feng Shui, the path towards wealth creation encompasses the methods an individual uses to generate income. This serves as a guiding principle for the industries and job functions individuals choose to engage in, addressing pivotal questions that shape their professional journey and financial well-being.

This concept facilitates the exploration of fundamental queries, such as whether to pursue entrepreneurship or work within established organisations, and what work or industry would align with individual skills, interests, and aptitudes.

Wealth Capacity: A Critical Factor for Success

Wealth capacity plays a critical role in determining the amount of wealth accumulated throughout an individual’s lifetime. Those experiencing favourable luck cycles but possessing limited wealth capacity often lead peaceful, yet financially limited lives. While major fluctuations in their lives are absent, many may encounter challenges in achieving a comfortable retirement later.

To illustrate the importance and intricacies of wealth capacity, we will examine the Bazi charts of three well-known and affluent entrepreneurs.

Carlos Slim

Carlos Slim is a Mexican business magnate, investor and philanthropist. As one of the wealthiest individuals globally, Slim amassed his fortune primarily through ownership of Grupo Carso, a conglomerate with interests in telecommunications, construction, energy, and retail. He is recognised for his significant contributions to business and philanthropy, focusing on education and healthcare initiatives in Mexico.

Bazi Chart Analysis

  • Daymaster: Born with a Geng Metal Daymaster (庚金), Earth is supportive of his Yang Metal Daymaster. From the perspective of the Earthly Branch, his Daymaster is supported.
  • Earthly Branch: Among the Year, Day and Hour branches of his Bazi chart, one element (申) aligns with his Daymaster. As such, from the perspective of the Earthly Branch, his Daymaster lacks substantial support.

Analysing his Year, Month and Hour stems, only one element (己) corresponds with the Daymaster. Consequently, his Daymaster lacks significant support. Carlos Slim’s Bazi chart is only supported by the Month branch, falling under the classification of having a weak Bazi chart.

His favourable elements include Earth, a resource element, and Metal, a self element. As the resource element is present in the Year Stem, the Fire element is favourable. Examining the Month branch, it features the favourable resource element, Earth (丑). Notably, this Resource element is also vertically rooted in the Year Stem.

This specific Bazi combination significantly enhances his wealth capacity, as his favoured element holds an authoritative and commanding presence in both his Stem and Branch elements. The alignment of these elements contributes to the strength of his Bazi chart in terms of wealth accumulation potential.

Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is an American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. Renowned for his value investing approach and financial acumen, he is considered one of the most successful investors in history, noted for his strategic prowess, insight and commitment to philanthropy.

Bazi Chart Analysis

  • Daymaster: Ren Water (壬水)
  • Favourable Elements: Metal (resource), Water (self) and Earth (power)
  • Bazi Chart strength: Weak

In his Bazi chart, the Month branch features his favourable element, Metal — which produces his Ren Water Daymaster. In addition, Metal is vertically rooted in both the Stem and Branch, which significantly enhances his wealth capacity, enabling him to accumulate a substantial amount of investment wealth over his lifetime.

Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs was an entrepreneur, famed for being the co-founder of Apple. Known for his charisma and demanding standards, Steve Jobs influenced technology and spearheaded entertainment and design initiatives. Today, his legacy endures as a symbol of innovation, creativity, and the pursuit of excellence.

Bazi Chart Analysis

  • Daymaster: Bing Fire (丙火)
  • Favourable Elements: Wood (resource), Fire (self) and Water (power)
  • Bazi Chart strength: Weak

Steve Jobs’s Bazi chart has 寅 (Indirect Resource) as his month branch. His favoured element, Wood, is vertically rooted in both the Stem and Branch, significantly boosting his wealth capacity. This factor contributed to his swift rise as one of the youngest billionaires when his favourable luck cycle arrived in the 1980s.

A common trait across these Bazi charts is the vertical alignment of their Useful God and Favourable Element within the Month branch and any part of the Heavenly Stems. This critical success factor amplifies their wealth capacity, paving the way for their rise to extreme wealth when their favourable luck cycle arrives.

The practice and application of Imperial Feng Shui principles have made it possible for individuals to expand their wealth capacities to match their goals and ambitions. At Imperial Harvest, we apply one of the most closely guarded Imperial Feng Shui secrets to multiply and enhance the wealth capacities of our blessed clients.

Imperial Harvest Sandalwood

Imperial Harvest-grade sandalwood holds a rich and sacred history, contributing to its potent Imperial Feng Shui properties. Historically, sandalwood was crafted into pendants, beads, or rosaries to enhance an individual’s indirect wealth luck (偏财库). In Imperial Feng Shui, indirect wealth capacity encompasses income derived from secondary or supplementary sources, including stock investments, trading profiles, or lottery winnings.

As a primary amplifier of indirect wealth, sandalwood plays a crucial role in the pursuit of wealth and prosperity. Limited indirect wealth capacity may lead to adverse financial implications, such as turbulent fluctuations in investments or missed opportunities for further growth.
