You Gotta Be Kidding Me
Wah liao. I still don't believe in numerology, but the answers are suspiciously... wierd. What do you think?
Natal Year number: 7
Although En Ying may have taken a considerable time to reach maturity, [you can say that again] she is nevertheless a quick thinker whose ideas change as rapidly as her conversation. She's an individual who wants to be liked, and as such finds it hard to refuse requests. For the same reason she dislikes arguments, and wherever possible will compromise to avoid conflict. Not the sort of individual to be employed in litigation [au contraire, I think I enjoy mooting. Mediation is boring. I WANT to be a litigator. Does it trouble anyone else that this analysis starts out IMMEDIATELY lawyer-related?], but excellent in mediation.
Natal Month number: 6
Naturally self-disciplined, En Ying will have assumed responsibility for other family members from an early age. She is naturally supportive of both the young [I AM the young. The only, too.] and the old in her immediate family, and has a capacity for hard work, so there is a danger that her life may become a little too serious [even this thing says I'm a mugger ?!?]. En Ying is suited to social work [aww. How sweet. I never thought I had it in me.], charitable functions or the world of education.
Natal House number: 6
With an analytical brain, and holding strong views, En Ying may appear to be somewhat stubborn [ooh yeah. Stong views I'm not so sure. The quarterlife crisis is messing that up majorly - just take a look at the boyfriend-stealing Musing.]. She is likely to have a particular interest in technological matters, and will work long and hard to master the skills needed to put that technology to good use. Family-orientated and good with money, she will work best with a small circle of like-minded colleagues [if we're all this stubborn, I forsee a nuclear meltdown].
Comments based on Western Grid
Although En Ying may be reasonably talkative in public, she finds it difficult to express personal feelings to those closest to her. In employment terms, this inhibition is of little consequence. [right you are]
Sensitive to criticism and naturally intuitive [the Smubs think I'm a blockhead], En Ying has a natural ability to detect insincerity in others. Because she is a sensitive soul, En Ying can be a solid friend and a good listener. As a result, she will get on well with colleagues, whilst being more than capable of handling office politics [I. HATE. POLITICS. But I guess I can handle it.].
A good organiser with creative ability [just watch later as this thing starts to contradict itself], En Ying is inclined to concentrate on pursuits that bring material success, to the exclusion of all else [I dunno, what do you think?]. She likes to take a project from beginning to end [yeah, DON'T give me anything half done], and will work long and hard to achieve success in her chosen field [I think the Chinese call me san fen zhong re du]. Potentially, there is something of the craftsman in En Ying, who could well enjoy the creation of beautiful objects.
Good with details and with a methodical approach, En Ying nevertheless is someone who enjoys constant new challenges to maintain her interest. She is a methodical individual with attention to detail [Ngeow. I'm Ngeow. You can say it. Why does that line sound so familiar? =)], but is inclined to leave tasks unfinished if her active mind alights on something of greater interest [BINGO]. Routine tasks that fail to challenge her intellect are at greatest risk [like cleaning my room. Dad knows.], so En Ying needs a job that offers variety [right].
Ambitious to improve her lot, En Ying will constantly push forward to achieve something in her life, yet this ambition will be balanced by humanitarian ideals that will lead her to support causes that may demand self-sacrifice.
[The Arrow of Scepticism: lacking the numbers 3, 5 and 7] Taking little on trust [Mum told me the X-men slogan was a good motto to live by: Trust a few, fear the rest. I agree.], in adult life En Ying requires solid proof before she accepts a concept. Characterised by honesty and fairness, she is quite intuitive, yet firmly sceptical of the claims made, for example, by religion [I know, I need lots of help with this.] This may be important at work, if employers require employee acceptance of work practices that are not immediately verifiable.
Comments based on Chinese Grid
En Ying will make some money and enjoy a reasonable standard of living [takes typical lawyer response to the word "reasonable": what the hell do you mean reasonable? Define reasonable! How many subjective characteristics do you attribute to the reasonableness test? Huh?! The expert opinion or the layman standard of reasonableness? *mumbles incoherently about uncertainty in the law and silly judges who refuse to make themselve sufficiently clear*].
En Ying has an average mind, and without the numbers 4 and 9 in the Chinese version will not enjoy a creative existence [but BUT you just said...].
Unless En Ying also has in the Chinese version either the numbers 5 and 7, or the numbers 4 and 8, she will be hypersensitive and prone to stress-related problems [like self-untying shoelaces? And singing Chinese poetry?].
Intelligent and logical, En Ying is not someone who acts rashly on the spur of the moment [never. Even my impulse shopping is carefully weighed out.].
In the absence (in the Chinese version) of the numbers 1 and 6, she will be good with money and details. She will be happier if the Chinese grid includes the numbers 5 and 7 [now that's a recipe for happiness - just add in 5 and 7... and stir...].
Although En Ying is ambitious, her ambition is tempered with humanitarian ideals.
[The Arrow of the Planner: 3, 4 and 8] En Ying has a cunning approach that borders on the unethical [here we go again. Like I needed more confirmation of my amorality]. She will flourish in those areas of business life that reap rewards from the misfortunes of others [just call me SCAVENGER].
[The Arrow of Intellect: The numbers 2, 4 and 9] En Ying is intelligent, articulate and enjoys a first-class memory [my ass. You only need to watch me in rehearsals to know that is SO not true]. She has a logical and analytical approach that suits her to the legal [*bounce*], medical [I would enjoy studying it, really, but I don't want to be a doctor.] or accountancy [!!!???!! (words fail me)] professions.
[well, the pictures aren't going to take themselves!]
