Do You Have What It Takes to Be a Dynamic Marketing Person?


The Marketing industry is ever-changing with a continuous need for reinvention and for finding new ways of marketing the same things. Strategic planning as well a creative ideas is what is needed to get ahead in the marketing industry. As such, how do we know if heaven provides us some assistance, and can we see this in our Paht Chee chart? There are three simple qualifications in the personal Paht Chee chart that when combined would indicate someone that is dynamic with good potential of being a dynamic marketing person.

The first qualification is for your self-element to be mildly weak. This is because someone with a strong self-element is generally considered hard to work with, who can be overly authoritative and demanding. As such, when you have a strong self-element, you are likely to encounter more competitors than allies, and more backstabbing as well as politicking. On the other hand, when your self-element is too weak, while you may have more allies and better networking support, it is possible that you encounter loss of opportunities. Thus, the best is when your self-element is mildly weak.

The second qualification is when you possess the War Star. It is said that someone with the War Star in their chart is someone with high intellect and good strategic abilities. This suggests someone smart, crafty and able to take on many roles, much like a chameleon. When combined with a mildly weak self-element, this star can bring excellent career opportunities. This person can thus climb up the career ladder very quickly. To find out if you possess this star in your chart, look at the Earthly Branch animals in both your Day and Year Pillars, and look for the War Star animal located in your Hour Pillar in the table below.

If the earthly branch animal
in the Hour or Year pillar is:
And the earthly branch animal
in the hour pillar is:
Rat, Dragon Monkey Snake - you have the War Star
Ox, Snake, Rooster Tiger - you have the War Star
Tiger, Horse, Dog Boar - you have the War Star
Rabbit, Sheep, Boar Monkey - you have the War Star


The third qualification is when your chart has the Star of Scholastic Brilliance. This star indicates someone who has a thirst for and an affinity with the pursuit of knowledge. Someone who possesses one unit of this star in their chart would be someone who enjoys keeping up-to-date with the latest technology, trends and news. Although this star is considered very beneficial, having three or more of this star in your chart can bring stagnation and a lack of progress in your career. This is usually because when the quest for knowledge is excessive, you end up as a researcher or scholar-type with a single-mindedness towards learning new things, forgetting everything else.


When combined with a mildly weak self-element, this star is most beneficial, as the qualities of someone with a mildly weak self-element makes the person more willing to share and impart knowledge and new skills. To find out if you possess this star in your chart, look at the heavenly stem element in your Day Pillar and search for the required animal sign in the Earthly Branches.

If the earthly branch animal in the Hour or Year pillar is: And the earthly branch animal in the hour pillar is:
Yang Wood Snake - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yin Wood Horse - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yang Fire Monkey - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yin Fire Rooster - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yang Earth Monkey - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yin Earth Rooster - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yang Metal Boar - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yin Metal Rat - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yang Water Tiger - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.
Yin Water Rabbit - you have the Scholastic Brilliance Star.


In the least, you should posses at least any 2 of the 3 qualifications in order to do very well in the marketing and sales line.
