Dark Billionaires Heroes Characteristics According to Alexia (me!)

So here I am, using my Direct Officer/7 Killing and keeping myself disciplined, updating this blog regularly. LOL! We’ll see how long I can keep this up, eh?

Sorry if you don’t know what DO (Direct Officer) or 7K (7 Killing) means. These are bazi terms used to describe the type of gods (there are ten of those). Please note that the term gods in itself in bazi have no relation whatsoever to religion. The Chinese in olden days were very romantic in that they used all sorts of flowery words to name things, and in this case Gods in describing the yin and yang polarity of the elements and their stars and representation.

DO and 7K are influence stars, and in terms of actions, they represent such things as routine, discipline, and organization as well as the confidence in taking charge. Some people have these prominent in their chart, so it’s easy for them to use this side of their character. Whereas I, on the other hand, have the DO so deep inside my hidden stems that even I don’t know I have it. So I need to consciously use it to bring it out. Then of course in terms of bazi, one prefers to have either a DO or 7K in their chart rather than both, as this means the person in question has confusing characters. To be an honorable general? Or a tyrant warrior? Using a boss as an example, a DO boss is kind and understanding, but stern. The 7K boss, on the other hand, is a tyrant and will literally f**k you up just to get the job done. Okay, I think that statement is a bit over exaggerated, but nonetheless true. I personally do not have any 7K in my chart, but will be going through it in the next 10 years luck pillar. Muahahahaha… I will become an awesome dictator! Or not. I’d rather read some cute yaoi manga than boss people around. ^_^

So why am I bringing the influence stars up in this blog post?

I’m not ashamed to say that learning bazi has been invaluably helpful to me, not only in my own life in guesstimating as to what is likely to happen in the next five to ten years, but in creating characters for my books as well.

If you’ve read some of my books, you’d probably guessed that the heroes have a lot of influence stars in their bazi chart, that’s if they have a chart to begin with. LOL! This of course, along with a heavy dose of Indirect Wealth, them being businessmen and making shit loads of money, and of course, strong resource. You can’t get to the top without help, right?

In terms of the Dark Billionaires heroes; James, William, Scott, Eric, Tory and Mark, in my opinion, I made them have more of a 7K than a DO personality. Yes, they are notoriously dark, dangerous, and uh-hum, sexy. Their business is mainly underground, dealing a lot with illegal shits. They rule the market and will f**k anyone who dare to cross them. If you have already read Chained to You Vol. 3: Trapped, you’ll know what I mean. These men kill a lot of people, and in this particular volume, it is to save Andy, Matt’s lover, who has been kidnapped by the Mexican. Andy is Mia’s younger brother, and yeah, I made him and Matt gay. Come on, people, I love yaoi (boys love) and will be writing such genre now and again. So please NOTE: do not be surprised to see some yaoi series coming out with my name slapped on the front cover of the books in the near future. LOL! (Hint: Chained by Fate starring Matt and Andy). ^_^

Chained to You Vol. 3: Trapped

Chained to You Vol 3 - Trapped

So if you enjoy reading about hot, rich men with strong 7K personalities, ready Dark Billionaires. The manga pictures below are what I personally imagine what James in the Chained to You Serial looks like. These pictures are of Ryuichi Asami in Viewfinder, which were drawn by my favorite manga artist and author Yamane Ayano. ^_^

Certainly, one of the picture reminds me of a little scene in Chained to You Vol. 4: Entwined, which will be coming out in October.

Please Note: The passage below has not yet been professionally edited. I apologize for any errors. ^_^

Chained to You Vol. 4: Entwined

Chained to You Vol 4 - Entwined

ViewFinder - James

James immediately dismissed the thought about love and Mia Donovan from his mind and came to sit on the couch. He made himself comfortable and crossed one leg over the other as he leaned back against the leather seat. Sitting there in that dominating position in his three piece suit, he was fuckingly powerful, highly dangerous, and awesomely sexy.

“Strip for me, Mia,” he demanded, his tone deep and hard with an intense erotic edge.

Gosh! Is it just me or is it hot in here? ^_^

Writing and Books Plan for 2017

Gosh, it has been ages since I’ve updated this blog. I must admit, I have been mostly on a holiday mode this year, and so updating blogs and such like doesn’t happen as often and my presence online is almost non-existence. As an author, I know it’s not good to be such a hermit because nobody knows who you are and that means nobody is going to buy your books. Yikes! So I really have to stop being so shy online and start promoting my books and myself a bit more.

Now comes the Bazi (Four Pillars of Destiny). Sorry, I really can’t help myself, being a bazi enthusiast.

So why am I so slow this year where writing, releasing books, and updating blog is concerned? And why am I in such a holiday mode?

It’s 2016, the Bing Shen (Fire Monkey) year, and the Shen forms a six combination with my Si (Snake) in my chart to form the water element, which is my resource. Resources, amongst other things, represent holiday, vacation, and rest and relaxation. Because water is the most needed element in my bazi chart, I strongly gravitate toward it. So yeah, lots of rest and relaxation for sure. And of course procrastination. There’s a lot of inspiration/thinking (resource) but not a lot of action. This is because there are destruction as well as clash into my chart at the moment. Shen and Si is in a destruction relationship while the Si and Hai is in a clash. Yep. I don’t like it, but since now it is at the end of August, which is also a Shen month, I really should get my act together. More importantly, next year 2017 is the You Rooster, which to me is a 7 Killing. So discipline! Discipline! Discipline!

Needless to say, I’ve got my book titles and dead line for the release dates sorted out. Now I just have to kick my own butt into action. That is write! Write! Write!

So what’s planned for 2017 in regard to books?

So far, I found the Dark Billionaires Series is quite popular. Chained to You Serial, James’s story, is doing pretty well at the moment, especially on iBooks. Please note that when I say pretty well, it’s pretty well TO ME. Compare to a more established authors, I’m puny, a shrimp, compares to those giant or mega stars. I’m at the bottom of the food chain, if I put it that way.

So currently I’m starting Chained by Love Serial (William’s story) and will be releasing the novellas in early 2017. If it’s popular, I will continue with Enthralled by You, which is Scott’s story as well.

 

Chained to You Serial 2017 Brand. These new covers will be updated in 2017. ^_^

 

Speaking of Dark Billionaires. Chained to You Vol. 1: Bounded is now FREE to download from all the major online ebook stores.

Chained to You Vol 1 - Bounded

Amazon | iBooks | Barnes and Noble Google Play | Smashwords

As for Falling for Sakura, I have plan to finish that series by the end of 2017. I will be rebranding and republishing the first two books along with the third book when it comes out in 2017. After Falling for Sakura, if the series is successful, meaning lots of buy, I will continue with the Princeton Brothers Series.

New Brand for Falling for Sakura Series in 2017

 

The Kiwi Bride Series is now rebranded as Billionaires’ Brides Series. So His Hired Girlfriend is now The Billionaire’s Hired Girlfriend, Highland Kiss is now The Billionaire’s Kiss, and When the Sun Courts the Moon is now The Billionaire’s Love. At the end of 2017, I will be releasing The Billionaire’s Love Part 2. This series is going to be a slow release because it’s not as popular. I guess Asian heroines in romance is not that HOT on the market. But I love writing it, and I just can’t not to write it. Hopefully, it will gain some sort of momentum in the near future. ^_^

 

Romance of the Nine Kingdoms Series will be releasing in either late 2017 or early 2018. Yes, I know I get a lot of request for this one, but since it isn’t as popular, I can’t spend too much time on it where writing as a business is concerned.

So that’s about it for now. ^_^

 

August Book Release: A Secret Proposal Part 1

It’s a Saturday here in New Zealand, and it is a lovely day. The sun is shining despite the cold this morning. It was only yesterday as I stood waiting for my dear sister Wanitta to pick me up after work that I noticed some of the Sakura trees along the streets are budding. This could only mean one thing! Spring is coming! And it is awesome. I can’t wait for the Sakura trees to be in full bloom so I could take some pictures with my new camera. And maybe starts shooting our YouTube video, too. Hehe. We’ve been planning for ages.

Anyway, Bazi wise August is the month of Shen Monkey (date: August 8th – September 7th). Sheng Monkey is a metal element, and Sheng Monkey is both an ungrateful punishment and destruction to the Si Snake in my chart. On top of this, it is also a harm to my Hai Pig. Thus far, there is nothing major that is distressing to me. But then again, this is the year of Yi Wei, so this might act as a patting to the blow? Though I could not say the same for next year as 2016 will be the year of the Shen Monkey. Triple Sheng Monkey! Eek! Shen Monkey 10 Years Luck – Sheng Monkey Year – Sheng Monkey Month.

But is it really an Eek? Metal is one of my favorite elements to balance my chart because Metal produces water, which is my most needed element as my chart is very hot and dry. Metal to my Day Master (Yi Wood) is my Influence star, especially my Direct Officer star. Direct Officer star, among other things, represents my husband star and my name and fame. Okay, let’s not talk about that possible other half. We know it’s not going to happen because of the punishment, destruction and harm. But what about my name and fame? Could this explain why my book A Secret Proposal got to the top of the Apple iBookstore top paid list on the release date? And furthermore, His Hired Girlfriend, A Secret Kiss, and Chained to You – The Contract is in the top 100 free section on the Apple iBooks store? Spread the name???

Next month September is the You Rooster Month (date: September 8th – Oct 7th). You Rooster is pure metal. It represents the 7 Killing to my Day Master. 7 Killing is more notorious and unstable and of course it clashes with my Mao Rabbit. *Sigh* It’s a never ending battle these clashes, harms, punishments and destructions. So, we’ll see how my books and I fare during this month. If I can survive that, then maybe I can survive 2017 because it will be a Ding You Rooster year, and of course, my next 10 years luck (Xin You) as that is where I will be heading within the next three years. Xin You is freakingly strong pure, pure, pure, and I mean pure 7 Killing. Can you just imagine a very sharp knife or scissors cutting cute, little plant? The scissors cut the dead branches and leaves, shaping the little plant into a beautiful flower. But one wrong move. Snip! The flower is gone. And I mean gone! You can’t fix it. It’s a done deal. Yi Wood does not like 7 Killing. Yi Wood likes Direct Officer better. At least there is still a few more years for me to learn bazi and get to know how to fully use the 7 Killing properly ^_^

Bazi, Romance, and Sakura and the Princeton Brothers: Which brother is her real husband? Sebastian or Darcy?

I know, I’m going on about Bazi (Four Pillars of Destiny) like a broken radio. But this time, really, you might be able to learn something. How about finding that awesome Mr. Right you’re always dreaming about? All right then. How about Bazi and Romance? Better yet, how about Sakura and the Princeton brothers. That’s if you’re a fan of them and the books. Which brother is her real husband? Gorgeously hot Sebastian with his pale blond hair and azure blue eyes or broodingly handsome Darcy with his jet black hair and mauve-gray eyes?

Romance and relationship is just one of the many facets of life we human beings are always fascinated about. More so for some, and indeed for those some, they go the extra mile and dig deep in order to get a peek at what their romantic future might hold.

Well, my dear readers, if you are indeed one of those some, then allow me to inform you that you can do so with bazi. Okay, speaking the truth here. I am indeed one of those some. Crazy you might say? Maybe. But I will tell you this and that is the consultation was eye opening for me. I now understand myself better. My flaws were being pointed out to me bluntly – in big, bold letters in my mind, of course. Yes, I have flaws. Many of them, in fact, that I am ashamed of myself. But to improve oneself, one needs to know one’s flaws, no? Analyzing one’s bazi chart is like going to a doctor to find out what’s wrong with you. But instead of your health you are diagnosing, it’s your life. Hence, Bazi Analysis is the diagnosis of your life whilst using Feng Shui to help improve what is wrong is the prescription. I know it only accounts for 33% of the life luck, but heck, 33% is better than a big, fat zero, right?

A while ago, a friend pointed out to me why I am so fascinated about this stuff and why I needed to pay someone to simply tell me what’s wrong with my life. First off, I came across bazi merely by chance a long time ago by picking up a book in the Feng Shui section. Yes, I was interested in Feng Shui first. And yes, I know quite a bit about Feng Shui. As a side note, Feng Shui is NOT the art of object placement to make your life better. It’s total bullshit! You simply can’t place a figurine in certain sectors of your house and voila, your life is better! That’s total garbage. Okay, I’m not going to rant about it here now. Though I might in the future.

Back to bazi then. Like a friend said, why pay someone to tell you your life sucks? Being me, I like to get the whole picture and dig deep. My goal? I want to be a successful person. To get there, I need to understand myself and know roughly what I need to do and what will happen. Another word, I want a guarantee. The friend told me why bother? If you know your future, then it takes the fun out of living. I guess the friend is right in a way. But see? I am a very conservative type of person. I don’t like to live dangerously. Thanks to my Direct Officer star. My analogy is – would you drive to an unknown destination without at least having a roughly drawn map of the road in your mind? Nope. Today there are GPS and google map for you to use if you’re going to be travelling some place you’ve never been to before. That’s how I see life. I need to know at least a little bit of what is likely to happen. You know, just to prepare myself.

All right. That’s enough about Bazi and my view of it. Let’s talk about romance and bazi, and of course, Sakura and the Princeton brothers and how one uses bazi to determine one’s other half. Please note that I am no expert in this field of bazi, and merely muse about the subject because it’s fun. Please also note that in life there is no such thing as that one other half. Rather, there are a few people who fits the criteria of that other half and it is up to you and your action to make things happen. Phew! I think I phrased that right.

Sakura and the Princeton Brothers: Which brother is her true other half?

If you haven’t already read Falling for Sakura: A Secret Kiss, then I have no idea where you’ve been. The book is completely free to download from all the major online book stores such as Amazon, iBooks, B&N, Google, Kobo, and Smashwords. If you don’t want to download from these stores, I’ve posted it up to read for free on Wattpad. It has over 2 million reads and getting to 3 million soon. Yup. Not exaggerating. In fact, I tend to understate. I usually do and I have no idea why. Anyway, go download the damn book and read it to understand what the hell I’m ranting about.

Book 1 - Falling For Sakura A Secret Kiss

We all know Sakura Princeton/Tanaka is in love with two very hot brothers, Sebastian and Darcy. Though to be honest, I have never intended for the book to turn out this way. But heck, it did and I can’t change that now. I just have to keep going. Anyway, so why am I brining Sakura and her love triangle up with the subject of bazi? That’s because via bazi you can find out who your true spouse/husband star is and when you’ll meet him. That’s in the real world, and I’m just using Sakura and her made up bazi chart to show you how it’s done.

Before I begin, I need to show you what a real bazi chart looks like. Below is an example. If you want to see what yours looks like, you can just google by using the key words “Plot Bazi Chart” etc. I use Joey Yap’s tool. Then of course you need to plot in your date of birth. Hence, year, month, day, and of course, time. You need all four to have a complete chart.

Bazi Sample Chart

Freaked out yet? Yes, it’s a lot. And yes, it’s confusing. Let’s not go there yet. I’ll just show you the basic.

The Spouse Star

In bazi, the true husband star for a female is the Direct Officer (DO) star. We are talking about a female chart here because Sakura is a female. For a male, the true wife star is the Direct Wealth (DW) star. If a bazi chart doesn’t have DO, then the 7 Killing (7K) is taken as the husband star. Note also that 7K is generally considered as the boyfriend star. For a male, if there is no DW star, then the Indirect Wealth or IW (generally considered as the girlfriend star) is taken as the wife star.

Sakura’s True Husband Star

So who is Sakura’s true husband star? Sebastian or Darcy? Below is her made up chart designed by me. Hehe.

Sakura Chart

Let’s go over the chart. In the Day Pillar where it says Sakura DM, this is Sakura’s Day Master. This represents her and who she is in elemental term and how she presents herself to the world. Here I chose the Xin Metal (jewelry and small metal) as her DM as an example, although she could be any one of the ten day masters such as Jia Wood (big woods), Yi Wood (flowers and little plants), Bing Fire (fire of the sun), Ding Fire (fire of candle light), Jia Earth (mountains), Ji Earth (soft earth), Ren Water (sea water), Gui Water (rain water), or Geng Metal (swords and large metal).

Below the DM where it says Spouse Palace is, as stated, the husband palace. It is a very important and untouchable palace out of all of the palaces. By untouchable I mean it cannot be clash, harm, punish, destroy or combine in any way, shape or form. If any of the afore-mentioned touches this palace, you can kiss a wonderful, romantic relationship goodbye. Of course in real life, there is no such things as a wonderful and lasting romantic relationship. Your ten years luck pillars and annual pillars change. The cycle of these interacts with your personal chart, making it super awesome, good, okay, or simply a horrible year for you depending on the composition of your chart.

For a woman to have a good romantic relationship, she needs to have the DO star within the spouse palace. Please don’t panic if you don’t see it straight of in your spouse palace. You need to look in the hidden stem which is shown below the spouse palace. Hidden stem is actually within the earthly branch. It’s just that the stars are hidden. If you still don’t have the DO star in the hidden stem, please remain calm. As long as you have a favorable element to the DM within the spouse palace, all is well in the relationship front. Just as long also that this palace is not clashed, harmed, punished or combined in anyway as mentioned before.

Next, the DO star needs to be a favorable element to the DM. In Sakura’s case, because she is a Xin Metal DM, she needs the DO star, the Bing Fire element, to be favorable to her DM. In this case, Sakura DM has to be strong because a strong DM favors the Influence Stars (DO and 7K), Wealth Stars (DW and IW), and Output Stars (EG and HO). She does not like Resource Stars (DR and IR) and Friend/Self Stars (Friend and RW).

Remember the ultimate goal for the chart is balance. You don’t any one element to be too strong. That’s why a strong DM needs to be controlled by the Influence stars (DO and/or 7K), produce Output Stars (EG/HO) and controls another element which means Wealth (DW and IW). This is all in order to reduce the strength of the DM. If the DM is weak then the DM needs resource (DR and IR) and friends/self-element to help strengthen it.

According to her Chart

So which is for real? Note that in Sakura’s chart, there are two influence stars, DO and/or 7K flanking on either side of her DM in the heavenly stem? Note: The top column is called the heavenly stem and the bottom is called the earthly branch. Heavenly stem is weak and doesn’t whole as much weight as the earthly branch. This means that to the outside and on the surface, Sakura appears to have two DO/husband stars. Hence, translate to life, this means she has two men to choose from as her love interest. In the hour pillar, I plotted it either as DO or 7K because I wanted to show that either she appears to have two husband stars or that she appears to have one husband star and one boyfriend star. As I’ve mentioned before, the heavenly stem is only an appearance. The stars/elements need to be rooted, meaning appearing in the earthly branch and straight down to the hidden stem to have any real lasting/meaning. In this case, Sakura chart has the DO right in the spouse palace. So she does have a true husband star that is strong and rooted. But really? Do the husband star means Sebastian or Darcy? This depends on Sakura’s decision. But for a more sure thing, one needs to look at both Sebastian’s and Darcy’s chart. If the chart fits, meaning one of the men’s chart is going through a wealth ten years luck pillar or that there is a combination forming a very strong wealth element for him (as mentioned before wealth also represent wife for a man), then you bet it’s him.

Sebastian – 27 years old multibillionaire real estate investor and businessman. You bet he’s going through his wealth 10 years luck pillar.

Darcy – 24 years old multibillionaire game designer and entrepreneur. You bet he’s going through his wealth 10 years luck pillar.

Damn! This is so hard.

When Sakura meets Sebastian and Darcy

In Falling for Sakura Book 1: A Secret Kiss, Sakura meets the Princeton brothers when they return home to St. Joseph Island for their cousin’s wedding. Of course they literally drove into Sakura whilst she’s out taking photos of nature. She’s an artist. More on bazi and her characteristics later. When she meets them again, she’s twenty-three years old. Now let us see how bazi help us decipher this. Below are her natal chart, 10 years luck pillar, and an annual pillar. I take the annual pillar as 2026 because in 2026, it is the year of Bing Wu, which is Bing Fire in the heavenly stem and Wu Horse (Yang Fire) in the earthly branch.

Skaura's Chart1

In 2026 when the year of Bing Wu comes around, Sakura will meet her potential husband. Bing is the fire of the sun, Wu Horse is Yang Fire which is also the fire of the sun. The element of fire represents the DO star for Sakura. When this star appears in both her 10 years luck pillar, as it is in the 23 to 33 years cycle, and the annual pillar, as it is in 2026, the husband himself will make an appearance and they will meet. See? Not so hard, right? But of course in reality, whether this meeting will turn into a relationship depends on the person’s action and whether there are clashes, harm, punishment and/or a combination between the pillars. And trust me, character such as Sakura with all her problems such as being an orphan, people being jealous of her and bullying her during her childhood years, and her having so much inner conflict will have some of these within her chart. More on that in later posts.

Of course the appearance of the Husband Star (DO or 7K) in the 10 years luck pillar and the annual pillar is not the only way a woman will meet her husband. Another way is when there is a combination of the elements, either via the formation of the Three Combination or the Directional Combination. In Sakura’s case, this occurs when her chart meets a 10 year luck and annual pillar of Yin Tiger and Xu Dog. Hence, Yin Tiger – Wu Horse – Xu Dog will form a Three Combination Fire Structure that is extremely strong. The same will happen if her chart meets the Si Snake and Wei Goat. Hence, the Si Snake – Wu Horse – Wei Goat form an extremely strong Directional Combination of Summer, which is also the element of fire, a Xin Metal DO/husband star.

Bottom story? If your chart say you will meet your other half, you will met him when the time comes. If it’s not now, why not concentrate on doing something else that your chart says will make you a success? Such as career (output/influence), accumulating wealth (wealth stars), or self-improvement (resource stars)? But then again, bazi is subjective and complex. There is no one star to consider but a combination in any area of life. Take career for example. For your career to be a success, three different stars are taken into consideration; Output, Influence and Wealth. It’s how good and hard you work (output), who your boss is (Influence) and how much money you make (wealth). For a man, well, wealth is not only wealth, but his wife, too. So no wealth? No wife! Or at least it will be very hard for him to find/connect with that special someone. You will notice a trend that when a man starts making money, he’d probably be getting married soon, or at least find his true other half (as mentioned above with Sebastian and Darcy).

Okay. Enough bazi.  For now, let’s just enjoy Falling for Sakura, why don’t we? Book 2, A Secret Proposal Part 1 is coming out on the 18th of August, that’s like only a week and a bit away. If you haven’t pre-order one, there’s still time to do that. It’s available on Apple iBooks, B&N, Google, Kobo, and Smashwords. The book will also be available on Amazon on the day of release. A Secret Proposal Part 2 will continue updating on Wattpad in October.

Bazi, Health, Inspiration and Writing

I’ve been neglecting to update this blog for a wee while now, and I feel the need to write and post articles once again. So I’m going to be going over a little about my poor health of late, which I have notified everyone of on Wattpad, and my current state of inspiration for writing.

Health wise, I’m not going so great at the moment. I will admit that I was never a fit nor healthy child when I grew up. Now as an adult, I am getting healthier. Come on, growing up in a refugee camp and surviving on barely anything to eat wasn’t an ideal childhood. And since I’ve learn and have come to a better understanding of Bazi (four pillars of destiny), I can appreciate why my health isn’t great, especially during the period between May to July. Check out my chart below.
My Bazi Table - Clash

In bazi, the months between May and July is the summer season. May is the Si Snake, June is the Wu Horse and July is the Wei Goat. These three months mark the summer season.

Now how does this affect me, health wise? I am a Yi Wood Day Master. Yi Wood is small plant such as flowers and shrubs. I was born, according to my month of birth which is May, in summer which is fire element. In summer, wood is weak, recall that wood produces fire in the elemental cycle. Once an element produces another element, the self-element will be weak. So in very basic bazi, I am a weak Yi Wood Day Master.

Since I was born in summer, my whole chart is very hot. Hence, the most important element needed to cool my chart down is water. I do have the water element in my chart in the year pillar, being born in a Hai Pig year. I’m not surprise I’m more attracted to friends with cold chart, especially those born during the winter season which is the months of December, January and February. Most of my friends and of course my younger twin sisters were born in these months.

The Pig and Snake Clash

Even if you don’t know bazi, you would have heard people telling you that people born in the pig year shouldn’t marry or be friend with people born in the year of the snake because the two animals clash. First off, this is a load of bullshit! Pardon my German. Because you’re born in the year of the pig simply doesn’t mean you can’t get along with those born in the year of the snake. Bazi wise, however, this hold true that the pig and snake clashes. So from here, you can tell that my year pillar clashes with my month pillar.

Boo! I’m so sad my chart clashes.

LOL! I will admit that having a clash chart isn’t fun in life. Generally, the clash between the year and month pillar denotes difficult childhood, as the two pillars represent age between one to thirty-five years. After thirty-five, the problem will not go away though it will lessen in effect. Of course, this depends on what the two elements of the chart represent to the person as well in order to analyze what type of difficulty the person has. For me, the Hai Pig water element is the resource elements, which represent, among other things; health, the state of my emotion and mentally, and of course help and support from noble people. The Si Snake fire, on the other hand, is my output elements which represent work and products etc. So which element wins? The Si Snake Fire, of course. Why? Because I was born in the season of summer in May when fire is at its most prosperous. Hence, Fire wins and, as the saying goes, clashes away the water element. LOL! Not surprising here. Get the picture?

No? Here’s one for you. Imagine two boxers in a boxing ring. One is red. He’s big, muscular and super awesome. The other one, the blue one, is pale, skinny, weak, and looks more than a little sick. He should be in a hospital bed with IV lines supporting his life. The match begins. In an instant the red knocks the blue one dead in a second flat. Ding! The red wins!

So how does this translate from bazi to real life? It simply means that there is a lot of hard work and very little support in anything. Health wise? Come May, June and July, my health goes down the drain. Picture wise? Imagine a little flower trying to survive in the hot desert. This is the picture of my chart during these three months. When these months arrive every year, I get the hit. Over work and stress with very little time to relax (relaxation and holiday are govern by the recourse stars, which is water in my case) leads to poor health.

istock_flower_in_desert_med

Inspiration and time to write wise?

The resource element, among other things, represent inspiration and time to enjoy life and smell the rose. Writing to me is enjoying my time and smelling the roses. Conclusion? Over work lead to stress lead to poor health and cannot find the energy to get inspire or write. Sigh! For the longest time I have always wondered why the snake months and years were so horrible for me. Now I know and will endeavor to relax more and not put myself through so much work during these times when they come around.

Ways to get inspiration

When I have no inspiration to write, I watch movies and anime and read books and manga. LOL! Speaking of books. I have recently bought about thirty from a Book Sales from our public library. It’s awesome. And it only costed me $23. So will start reading those soon.

As I’ve mentioned before, I watch anime in order to connect better with my resource stars. Relaxing and entertaining yourself is one way to connecting with your resource stars. So I’ve been watching ‘Say I Love You’ or Sukitte Ii na yo in Japanese. It’s a sweet high school romance. I highly recommend it if you haven’t already seen it. Watch it here on Anime Kiss.

Say I love You Manga and Anime

It’s also because I loved Sakurai Takahiro’s voice. He has such an awesome voice. And every time I hear him speak, my blood sings. It just sings. I have also been reading manga and listening to his Drama CDs. One of them is Adekan. It is classified as Yaoi and Shounen Ai. So if you don’t like Yaoi (boys love) or Shounen Ai (boys friendship), then don’t read it. Although I must admit there isn’t much of the Yaoi but more of the Shounen Ai. Just subtext Yaoi. But I do love all three mains—all males. Yes, I love male harem. Just males. Judge me if you want to. But that’s who I am.

Now then, I must return to editing Falling for Sakura: A Secret Proposal Part 1 and updating When the Sun Courts the Moon on Wattpad. These two, are by the way, on pre-order on iBooks, B&N and Smashwords.

So chillax and reconnect with your own resource stars by doing what I like to do. Read books!

Cheer and look after yourself ^_^
