your palace sits the following stars and deity. White tiger, Jing Door, Tian Yin Star @ Fire Palace + Fu Yin. From what I understand, this is not a very auspicious combination. Tiger represent skillful and technical inclination, aggressive and drive. But also means surrounded by gossips, tale telling, fighting, quarrels. Based on 12 phrases, ling guan @ Wu, di wang @ Si.

Good if you seek temporal get away, and develop your skills and learning for next job role. At that palace, you crash with Gen 8 palace what denote wealth and career. Zhi Fu at Kan 1 palace. In there has a ‘robber’. Add these sign together, career is shaky. job prospect is decline phrase, clouded by gossip attacking. What you can do about it is reskill, relearn and retask. Jin door in your palace is a good star. so, there is a silver lining among all. Governing knowledge and skills, hope and confidence.

To answer your question. not only ur colleague will give u problems. Your boss and superior as well. There is clash between ur palace and zhi fu and it affect ur wealth star (so, appraisal could be affected since we are in end of 2017).

If you don’t have a religion, why not his vesak day, make a lamp donation or sponsorship. If you missed this vesak day, you can also do that at your lunar birthday this year. Those type where your name is written and place in the temple, where it give light, embrace in chant. It help to reduce or mitigate some effects of karma. If not, giving alms at charity or do charity work is also ok. this to use activity to stimulate your ‘heart’ with gratitude. Or, you are christian, pray often. seek forgiveness on the things your have done or have failed to do. Say sorry to the universe at large, ask not to be put to the test; and when it resonate, ‘they’ will respond in kind. things will put in order gradually.
After you done all this, your heart and mind should be less negative. At NW of your room, place a water purifier ( the type with water inside that turns round and round), this aims to stimulate the 生气 energy in your room / house. This is based on personal kua. And, this year flying star 贪狼 is at NW. use this to your favour. placement, you can put it up at 25 May 2018. Its one of the auspicious day this month. ：）
