Basically, there is no difference between major and career. Major is more about study while career is more about the field engaged in. However, they are consistent in terms of like images in Five Elements
. For example, the major belonging to water is also water career; the wood major is equal to wood career.
Since major and career have certain nature in Five Elements, the personal BaZi pros and cons should be taken into consideration for the better display of strengths, so that you can do a familiar work with ease and learn to meet practical needs for future success in career.
Then, what are Bazi pros and cons? It is reckoned from your Bazi with a complicated process and method and requires at least 3 to 10 years of systematic study and practice for correct judgment. In short, the Bazi pros and cons refer to the pros and cons of Day Lord while the Day Lord is yourself, so it is your pros and cons. For example, someone has wood and fire as pros, earth and metal as cons; someone has earth and metal as pros, water and wood as cons; some take metal and water as pros, fire and wood as cons.
The pros and cons of Five Elements are judged by the strength of Day Lord in year, month, day and hour which contain different energy of Five Elements: some benefit the Day Lord while some hurt the Day Lord. Jia (甲, the 1st Heavenly Stem) and Yi (乙, the 2nd Heavenly Stem) Day Lord of weak wood needs to be generated by water and helped by wood; Jia and Yi Day Lord of strong wood needs to be refrained by metal and vented by fire. In a word, the five elements making the Day Lord in the best development is what you need most. On the contrary, those making you in the worst state are cons you need to avoid.
It is very difficult to tell the pros and cons of Bazi, which is impossible to explain with one article or master by reading only one article. It requires more than three years' professional study of Five Elements astrology and more than three years' practical experience in astrology. For some very complex Bazi, you just cannot tell accurately and need to consult an expert who will combine with your practical situation for comprehensive analysis.
When you choose a major or career, you need to weigh based on your personal pros and cons in Bazi, so as to conform to the laws of nature, follow the mandate of heaven, enjoy exceptional advantages and seize opportunities for the most favorable state of development and the best combination of destiny and efforts.
