After all the Fire Element Intro, I suddenly have the feeling to look at the coming Period 9 and therefore I like to share some of my thought.
Period 9 carries the Purple Flying Star number 9 which belongs to the Fire Element. During the transition from Period 8 to Period 9, People born with Life Gua #9, #1 and #6 will be more sensitive to the capital shift to period 9. Especially those born with a Fire Day Master (Ding Fire and Bing Fire) or those who have strong Fire Elements in their Bazi chart will also be more sensitive to the shifting Qi.
Flying Star number 9 is associated with “Li Gua Trigram.” People associated with Li Gua are women, especially the second or middle daughter. They too will be influenced by the changing Qi during the transition to Period 9.
Flying Star number 9 represents beauty, innovation, power, fame, passion, senses, and spirituality.
What can we expect in moving toward Period 9?
What that works in the past may not be working well in Period 9. The traditional way of education is academically based that placed great importance on teaching will shift its focus to learning.
Academic Based: Children were told there was one right answer to a question.
Learning-Based: Children will be encouraged to learn through “divergent thinking” and experience. Divergent thinking encourages the search for more than one answer. There are many possible answers to a question.
Following divergent thinking, the ideas and information will be organized using convergent thinking; i.e., putting the various ideas back together in some organized, structured way.
While the importance of standard academic education such as accounting, law and engineering will remain, there will be an important shift in education to spirituality, creativity, sensory sciences, and futuristic technology.
Which Industry will prosperous in Period 9?
Industries related to culture, education, beauty & cosmetics, health, DNA research, blood and cardiovascular health, electronics, robotics, and technology applications that will transform people’s lifestyles will do well.
In Period 9, the “technology revolution” will replace the “industrial revolution.” Job markets will change quickly as hundreds of jobs will be become extinct, replaced by automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence. As such industries related to A.I., robotics, education, genome, blood, heart, mobile apps, etc will be the upcoming market trend.
Doors will be opened to people with good analytical skills and the ability to harness information. The service industry, where human interaction and connections are needed, will become the largest engine of job creation. For example, personal fitness trainers, dieticians, nutritionists, and image consultants will be in demand. Jobs in the service industry such as life coaches, counselors, and leisure consultants will help people deal with life problems. The entertainment industry will remain a major job creator. Other trending businesses are facelift, plastic surgery, cosmetics, botox, fat freezing, rejuvenation, etc.
Health Issue in Period 9?
In Period 8, health concerns revolved around diabetes, stomach-related illnesses, cancer, and epidemics due to the Earth Qi. In Period 9, we will see a pick-up in health issues related to psychological and neuro-sickness, cardiovascular diseases, diseases related to the eyes, brain, and blood, and cancer.
The world economy has progressed so rapidly that many have forgotten or even written-off moral values, societal consciousness, environment, etc. Period 9 is like an awakening call & reshuffling for new priorities in life.
Period 9 also increases interest in language, values, culture, education, ethics, morals, metaphysics, spirituality, and religion such as literature, fine arts, Feng Shui, Qi Gong, Pranic Healing, Reiki, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. Environmental consciousness also re-surface as a top priority. Environmental issues and natural disasters such as global warming, increased melting of the Arctic and Antarctic ice caps, acid rain, air pollution, forest fires, and volcano eruptions will become the main focus. Some of these trends already taking baby steps like electric car saving Mother Earth.
