Unemployed? How to Use Feng Shui to Find the Right Career for You

The news headlines are dismal and the jobs outlook is anything but promising for the future.

The economic trends say that we’re in for lots more of the same: high unemployment, continuing recession and people struggling to make ends meet.

So, what if you’re looking for a job and having no luck?

Feng Shui might be able to change that.

One of the keys to finding success in a career is lining up your interests and particular strengths with your career. Why? Doing so means that the chances are you’ll do your job better, be better at it, and enjoy it more – all predictors of career longevity.

However, many choose jobs that are simply available rather than what truly suits them and their unique nature. 

With an entrenched economic crisis that shows no sign of letting up, it makes sense to look for jobs that are an energetic match for your temperament and abilities. By doing so, you’ll be compounding energies – and that could just land you a job! In feng shui, any energy that is compounded becomes stronger and, more importantly, builds. It’s much like a rope that’s made up of three or more strands; it’s stronger than a rope only made of one strand.

When you use feng shui in your home, office, and in your career selection, you’re building your earth luck.

Today’s economy is calling on all of us to work differently than we’ve ever done before. Businesses and careers are having to adapt to the new markets in ways we’d never imagined – and it’s happening on a global scale.

Where consistency of effort and showing up day after day was once the gold standard for predicting career longevity, today it’s all about speed, flexibility and adaptability. We must change with the market and the new demands of it. And we have to look for new ways for adapting to the subtleties and that calls for heightened awareness and the need for being open and receptive to other possibilities.

If you’ve been looking for a job or considering a career change, it might be worth looking at your elemental nature and whether what you’re looking for in a job is in alignment with your inner nature and energies. In feng shui, each person is born with a certain energy that corresponds to a particular direction. That direction is associated with particular numbers, elements such as water, fire or metal — and with industries associated with those elements. These are all based on a kua (pronounced “kwah”) number. The number is based on your gender and date of birth  (to find yours click here) and relates to a particular career path or industry.

The chart below outlines the kua numbers and the careers associated with them, as well as other compatible industries and jobs for your particular kua.
