In Ba Zi or Four Pillars of Destiny, the elements and zodiac carry certain features, characteristics and structures that can foretell whether a person needs a partner or can be a compatible partner.
When it comes to business, it boils to synergy between the partners’ ability, aspirations and what the others can bring to the table for a win-win partnership. This will ensure whether or not the parties can actually collaborate to make profit together.
A person’s Ba Zi birth chart can reveal his innate character. Can the person take risks or averse to it? Is there a Rob Wealth or 7 Killings structure in the birth chart? In business, one needs to take calculated risks in order to go far. The person must have a keen eye for spotting opportunities and know how to capitalize on them in order to be competitive. Without such characteristic traits, it can pose a challenge to run a business and to sustain it. What if you do not have such qualities to be a businessman but possess creative intellect and ingenuity for ideas? Or you have technical know-how and abundant know-how but lack business acumen to start a business? Or perhaps you have strong networking ability and charisma to influence people but have poor money management skills? You can then look for a partner who possesses the skills and abilities you lack through Ba Zi compatibility reading.
There are many factors that determine the success of a partnership but a Ba Zi analysis can bring forth the complimentary sets of skill of potential partners. The objective of finding a partner who is capable and suitable rest with the compatibility of the birth charts. One of the questions that beg asking – Is he or she the kind of person who can handle being in a partnership? Some people may have complementary strengths but simply do not have a collaborative spirit in them – it may not be easy for such as person to cooperate or work in a team as it does not come naturally to them.
In Ba Zi, the general rule is that Day Masters who are strong don’t need partners as much as Day Masters who are weak, although there are exceptions to the rule.
However, there are practical reasons aside from Ba Zi’s perspectives that a person might want a partner. Some people can be a sole proprietor but simply want a partner because they don’t want to do all the work. Some people may want a partner because they are short of capital and need financial backers.
From a Ba Zi stand point, a partnership can stand a better chance of success if there is compatibility between potential partners. It doesn’t matter how well the partners leverage on each other’s skills or get along personally – there can be no lasting success in a partnership if one party is not hungry for success and the other party is very ambitious. This is when a Ba Zi analysis can measure the compatibility of a business partner based on complimentary skills and alignment of goals. Another important factor to consider for successful partnership is timing. In Ba Zi, a person is given luck pillars that determines the years when fortune can rise or fall in the pathways of life. To increase the odds of a successful partnership, the parties should go through favourable Luck Pillars at the time of a partnership and preferably their Luck Pillars should also indicate opportunities through partnership. They say timing is everything. It is also true in Ba Zi. With the right timing, a partnership is likely to be successful and profitable.
