Our Job In 20 Years: Now, Then And Future
I am pretty
sure here in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world too, the available job
markets are shrinking. When I started my job here in Penang some 20 years ago,
my pay was around MYR2,200 with a MNC. And after 20 odd years later, the
starting pay with this MNC is still MYR2,200! In case you have no clue of the
inflation rate, let me show you an example: a 800 square feet flat cost around
MYR150,000; now this same flat is priced around MYR350,000 and going up!
become of our job market in Penang? Let us resort to Kalachakra Astrology (just
for the fun of it).
From 1984 to 2003:
planet: Mercury, Marc
combination of Mercury with metal gave rise to many new born religions, so-called
New Age cults. This was the time where the numbers of mediums and magicians
were at their height. Needless to say, anything and everything about magic
goes: amulets, statues, books, magic rituals.
also the booming market for entertainment industries, almost all of the
electronic manufacturing plants in Penang at that time were making something
related to entertainment industries. So factory jobs were plentiful at that
time. People were happy with jobs and money.
followed next when people had a little too much of money, they spent on
nightclubs and social escorts. Period 7 belongs to young ladies; this is their
good time to make money.
time, it was employee’s world and it is better to find a job than to do
after 1996 things started to change when Mars started its rule. The power of
Mars burnt off all those vanity of magicians and mediums. And gradually the
occult is no more science.
From 2004 to 2023:
planet: Mars (4), Jupiter, Venus
Period 8 is
the period for our young men. However, these young men only had 4 years of good
time and had to suffer throughout the rule of Jupiter and Venus. During the
rule of Jupiter, these young men had to work very hard to please their bosses
and that their income is not much. During the rule of Venus, the young men had
to work extra hard to earn a living; but it is also true that they spent most
of their money for entertainment. So, everything returns to ‘emptiness’.
This is the
period for building constructions: bungalows, high-rise residential buildings
and mega construction projects. It is thus needless to say that works in
construction sites are plentiful and hence the need to foreign labors. This is
the time for hands-on jobs: plumbers, electricians, welders etc.
also a time for the employees to think of their ‘next steps’ especially for
those in the entertainment, IT or computing businesses. It is best time to
prepare to engage into own businesses.
From 2024 to 2043:
planet: Venus (8), Saturn
Period 9 belongs
to the middle age group and it is ruled by element fire.
building constructions continue for another 20 years or so down South. Lighting
industries, foods and beverages, IT, energy production utilities or fuel, oil
related industries shall be the prime during these periods. But since the
effect of fire would be neutralized by Saturn, then I have some reserve on if
Period 9 can make miracles to Penang and the rest of the world.
