If you are a fan of Matt Damon who became famous from his movies, “The Bourne Identity”, “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum” and like a movie on a lone man surviving against all odds, then this is a good one to watch.

When a fierce storm hits planet Mars, one of the astronauts, Mark Watney Matt Damon) who was on a mission to Mars was left behind by his team as he was accidentally hit by a flying antennae and presumed dead. With only a meager supplies of food and water which can only last less than a year, he must utilize his wits, spirits and be resourceful to find a way to survive for four years until the next manned mission arrives and also to find a way to communicate with Earth.

It is interesting to watch how resourceful he is as botanist to plant potatoes and create water in Mars. I shall not reveal too much of the plot and be a kill-joy, you go and watch it now as the movie is currently playing in the local cinemas.

Like in the movie, there will always be challenges and obstacles to overcome in life and we need to be resourceful to draw inspiration, strengths and backing to overcome our challenges and help find our success and eventually fulfillment in life. We can use our Bazi chart to check what are the resources we have and use them to overcome our challenges. There are five types of resources in Bazi. Please print your BaZi chart here. The resources are:-


Financial backing is the backbone that facilitates expansion, enhance productivity and boost your organizational growth. This is what it takes to bring your business to the next level.


This refers to the knowledge and unique information you possess. Use this edge well to convert this advantage into one of your most valuable resources in life. If you do not have this in you, it’s high time to acquire some.


You have the ability to recognize what others have that can be helpful to you. This refers to people as your resources. With the right people, the right skills and talents, you will be able to get all the help you need to succeed.


The human connections-social network- that belongs uniquely to you could be your biggest money maker. If you know someone who might just make the deal work, this valuable connection would be your strongest asset.


There are 2 types of physical resources-the item or objects you own or a special ability or physique you have that others do not have.

There are scenarios to discover your resources in your Bazi Chart.

Scenario 1

Look for Resource element(DR or IR) at the top(heaven stem) of the Bazi chart which could be Hour Pillar, Month Pillar and Year Pillar and check direct below to see what elements you have as shown in the Bazi Chart below. In this case, there is could be either a Friend (Companion) element (Friend or Rob Wealth) which means your resource is Connections. If  7K/DO appears instead of RM/F, then your resource is Physical Assets.  If it is DW/IW, then your resource is Financial. If it is HO/EG , then your resource is Intellectual Properties. If it is DR/IR, then your resource is Human.
