It is that time of the year again when people are asking about what’s in store for next year. As early as now people have been asking whether the coming is a good year or a bad year, but like I always say a year is rarely all bad and rarely all good. It will always be a mixture.

I have made my chart several weeks back, but as usual making the analysis and writing it is a big task. In the past few years due to the careful analysis I was able to pronounce that accurately some calamities. For example, modesty aside, and I say this without pride I was the only Feng Shui writer who was able to accurately predict the Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) that happened in the Visayas, then I was also able to predict the weird weather that happened in 2014, and for 2015 I did say that there might be a strong earthquake that will happened in Asia. Admittedly, the earthquake might be symbolic in some sense, but as I stated in my forecast, I strongly feel that it is going to be an actual earthquake.

Now, allow me to share with you my forecast for 2016. Again, this will be shared with you in 3 major parts. Namely:

  1. 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalance Year Filled With A Number of Good Stars (Part 1)
  2. 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stats, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalance Year Filled With A Number of Good Stars (Part 2)
  3. 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey 12 Animal Chinese Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast

For this year, the last part is going to be divided into 12 parts. One post each for each animal sign to make it an easier read. I have been receiving a lot of request for me to do this because sometimes it gets some readers confused if they want to read only certain Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs and all the signs. On top of that I will have a separate posts about the Tai Suey God of the year.

As mentioned this is the year of the Fire Monkey and it officially starts on February 8, 2016. Regular readers will know that I always say that as we usher in the New Year of the Western Calendar, this still doesn’t include the energies of the succeeding year and I have always stressed on that, however, for this year forget about that because we will experience the energies of Lunar New Year 2016 early on, in fact, as early as this December. This is especially true for some signs, which will be discussed later, but I would like to stress on those people born under the year or under the sign of the Ox. More on this later.

The good news is base on the 24 Mountain Stars formula, this coming 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is a record breaking year because it will usher in several Auspicious Stars and two – thirds of the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac will benefit from these stars. Furthermore, most of the signs, actually only those people born under the sign of the Ox is excepted from this, will have some good stars. In this aspect this should be a good year. But of course there are other aspects that have to be considered.

First let me tell you something about the Fire Monkey. By nature, the Monkey is a smart and very strategic to the point of being devious, and it may also be cunning. A review of the past ‘Monkey’ years shows that it is quite an unstable year in such a way that you’ll see that energies of the year quickly changes. So if you’re not a person who can easily adopt to change, chances are you might be in little bit of trouble. However, if you’re stable and/or someone who can easily adopt to change, then you’ll be safe this year.

One of the biggest problem of the year is that the Bazi/Paht Chee chart of the year is terribly unbalanced or imbalanced. Fire is very strong while water is sorely lacking. I will discuss this further but off hand generally speaking in Feng Shui the water element represents water. Although for the year 2016 it represents resources and support. So this off hand indicates a lack of support and resources, but since water generally represents wealth luck, then wealth luck might be affected also. Again, I will discuss this further later.

I would like this part of the forecast to focus more on the Bazi or Paht Chee chart of the year, I would like to mention that the year is ruled by the Flying Star #2, or what is better known as the Illness Star. Regular readers of this blog should know by now that the Illness Star also causes accidents, so we might see a rise in accidents and people getting sick. This might range from simple feeling under the blue or grave illness. Those people who are already battling an illness should be extra more careful in 2016. My Guru Lama has made a special and highly consecrated Illness Suppression Amulet for this.

Illness Suppression Amulet2

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Another thing that bothers me is the fact that the Flying Star #5 or what is known as the Five Yellow Star flies into the North East. I will explain further on the part 2 of this forecast, but this year because it flies into the earth sector the 5 – Yellow Star will be a lot stronger. And people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger, as well as people who stay in the Northeast sector of the house office, building, home, or room are greatly and gravely affected. This year you need a stronger cure for this.

But as I always say what is the use of knowing these things if we cannot do anything about it. We cannot just torment ourselves with worry. So I hope to be able to provide some suggestions on how one can protect oneself from these hostile energies.

I always do my chart manually and I don’t have a software to make it into a presentation format. Thus photo is lifted from Google Images.

As I always do, I want to look at the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart. As mentioned earlier there is a strong fire element in the chart and it is completely lacking of water, which means it is quite dry. What dominates this year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart are the elements fire and metal. For those who are familiar in Feng Shui knows that Fire destroys Metal, and this simply cannot be good. Again, for those of you who are familiar about the relationships of the elements, and also who are familiar with a Bazi or Paht Chee chart knows that this year’s chart is not very nice. Earlier, I mentioned that the general representation of the element water in Feng Shui is money luck or financial luck or wealth luck. So it’s absence can only generally mean that money will be a little hard to get this year. However, this is tempered by the fact that for this year, Metal represents money, and as mentioned the Metal element with the Fire element dominates the chart. So what does this mean? Are we going to have money or not? Am I conflicting myself?

Let us focus first on what the Metal element represents this year. For this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey, the Metal element represents Wealth. So there is going to be wealth and financial luck. But it is not direct, which means this year we have to be more creative and find ways to earn money. The usual way will not work. What I’m trying to say is, if you’re a businessman selling a certain product, you will that in marketing your product you will have to think of new strategies because doing the usual marketing will not work. And if you’re a regular employee, it’s a year where you might find your regular income missing because of complacency.

For this year, water represents authority and power. So the lack of this element means authority and power will be severely diminished. So rebellions might be a problem this year both in the political and business arena. This problem combined with the wiliness of the Monkey might create energies of treacheries and duplicity. To guard yourself against this it will be extremely beneficial for you to wear or carry one of the following: Kalachakra Pendant (made of gold, or clear quartz, or jade) which is also one of the Holy Trinity of Protection of 2015, Vajrapani Ruel, Sun Wukong (The Monkey God).

kalachakra pendant2

The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Now the question everybody will be asking now is how do we compensate for the lack of water? Should we all be wearing blue or black (colors that represents the water element), or wear blue semi – precious stones like Lapiz Lazuli or Sodalite? Well, the clear answer is yes, but I guess this is the year that I guess you will have to learn how to check your own Paht Chee or Bazi chart to check how much water do you have. Because if you have 5 or more water element on your chart, you need not wear blue or black. And if you have 3 or more water element on your chart, it’s time for you to celebrate because this is going to be a good year for you.

So how do you determine how much water element do you have?

I will not be able to teach you how to draw your own Bazi or Paht Chee chart because that will take years to learn. But you can go online and Google Bazi or Paht Chee counter. There are three or four of them online. Take the top 3 and follow the instructions given. They will request you to input your full birthdate, after which a chart similar the one above picture will be drawn up. All you have to do is simply count how many water do you have. But please don’t just use one, because there is one of those famous Paht Chee calculators that are not very accurate. Obviously, I’m not at a liberty to share which one so I suggest do all three, and chances are the two that’s similar follow that. Well if all three are the same then good for you.

As I said, if you have 4 or more water elements on your chart, then good for you because by having a high water ranking will already make you luckier next year.

Now for those of you who have a high fire element on their chart, then I suggest that you wear lots of blue or black and wear a blue stone. Lapis Lazuli and Sodalite are fine, but if you can get a Tanzanite, all the more so much better. Tanzanite’s energy is a lot stronger.

But that doesn’t end there. If you have high metal element on your chart, when it is higher than 4, you will have to exhaust it by wearing a blue stone also.

I will have to clarify that there are hidden elements, but this is something I’m not capable of discussing here because it will take up a lot of space and time for me to write it. So as of now, use the above as a simple basis.

Sun Wukong2

Sun Wukong

Going back to the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Bazi or Paht Chee chart, and those of you are familiar with Feng Shui the production – destructive – exhaustive relationship of each element will have noticed this right away, there is some destructive relationship. Namely, as I said earlier, Fire destroys Metal. And so what I’m about to say might get more confusing again to the nouveau Feng Shui practitioner. We have already established that the water element generally represents money luck / wealth luck / financial luck in Feng Shui and so the absence of water signifies that money will be quite difficult to come by this year. However, this is somewhat compensated by the fact that the metal element for 2016 represents money. So because of this, it mean that bleak prognosis because of the lack of water element is alleviated, albeit money luck goes to the person who is more creative and hard working. BUT THERE IS FIRE IN THE CHART WHICH IS AS STRONG AS THE METAL ELEMENT, FURTHERMORE, THEY BOTH APPEARS ON THE YEAR AND HOUR PILLAR! This means the destructive cycles of these two elements are significant. What does this mean? Unfortunately, this indicates that there is a potential for financial crisis to happen or might incite to happen during the first quarter of the year and the last quarter of the year. If it happens of the first quarter, the effects might be felt on the middle of the year. If it happens towards the end then it will be felt by next year. But remember this is base on Lunar Calendar, so it happens in the first part of the year, we might start feeling it by August or September. And remember I use the word incite, because the trigger might not have anything to do with the ‘finance’ world, it can be political or something else. Especially affected by this are people who currently don’t have any ‘reserve’ money either in the bank or in their business. Also greatly affected are people who have a very high Fire element in their chart. To remedy this, I believe it is important for you to wear a blue stone like the Lapis Lazuli but for this year I’m partial for the precious stone Tanzanite. I will discuss this further on a different post. Also allow me to clarify here that the effect of this destructive cycle of the fire and metal are not only significant for the macro perspective, it can affect individuals by the fact that their wealth gaining activities will be met by challenges or opposition via a strong competition.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

At this point, allow me to share that the strong presence of the fire element next year will also mean that generally speaking the whole world will be warmer or hotter. This is basically nothing new because here in the Philippines the news has been talking about the fact that we will experience some drought. However, base on my annual reading, I would like to propose a slightly different scenario. I agree that the world will be warmer, but while a lot of places will experience some dryness, there are areas that will be generally very wet. Why? Because the chart also shows the presence of the Dragon, which this year brings in hidden water element, and this also means that generally speaking this is good because it alleviates some of the bad effects of the high fire element. But, we should not count on this so much.

In conclusion for this part, you will notice that although the year’s Paht Chee shows that this might be a challenging year but it is something that we cannot remedied. In the days to come I will be sharing with you this year’s essential charms but note, this is a year when people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger must take great care and they would need to protect themselves. But I’m getting ahead of myself here. For now, remember that in order to protect yourself from the wiliness and treacherous energy of the year you have to wear one of the following: Kalachakra (made of gold / jade/ clear quart), Vajrapani Ruel, Sun Wukong pendant. You also have to check your Bazi chart and depending on the number of presence of the elements that I have discussed above you have to wear a blue stone (sodalite, lapis lazuli, tanzanite) either as bracelet or pendant.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.
