Is the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey a black year? The answer is yes.
Is the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey a bad year because it is a black year? The direct answer is no. Why? Because there are a lot of factors that has to be considered before you can say it is a bad year. Besides a year is seldom all bad or all good, and 2016 is no different. In fact, if you review my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui forecast, you’ll see that while the general forecast of the year might not be so good, the forecast for each of the animal sign are either very good or a mixture of good and bad. The only exception to this is the sign of the Ox.
But why is it that 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is called a Black Year thus it sends a scary thought to a lot of people? A year is generally called a black year when a black star lands on the center of the Flying Star chart, as it is in the case this year. So this means that when #3, #5, #7, aside from #2, lands on the center and it becomes the ruling star the year becomes black. The scariest black years are when the #5 and #7 Flying Star becomes the ruling star. With #5 Flying Star (also known as Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang) as the worst of all stars. Last year, 2016, was a #3 Flying Star black year, 2019 is a scary black year because the #7 Flying Star is the ruling star, and 2021 is a another scary black year because the #5 Flying Star becomes the ruling star.
When we have a black year it only means that the ruling energy of the year base on the Flying Star formula is bad. But that doesn’t mean that is a terribly scary year, because there are other factors that has to be considered like the year’s Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart and elemental luck and 24 Mountain Stars Formula among others.
Having said that it should be noted while this year is a black year, with the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star (a star that also causes accidents), this means that all of us should be more careful when it comes to health. But there are amulets that can help prevent this problem like the Illness Suppression Amulet. Wearing these kinds of amulet may help curb or avert the effects of the #2 Flying Star or at the very least minimize it’s impact.
Again, all people are affected, but if you see read my forecast, there are some age group from each sign that may be more affected, while for the Ox and Tiger, because you are weakened by the #5 Flying Star (also known as the Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star), you become more susceptible to effects of the #2 Flying Star.
Talking about #5 Flying Star, as you may have read from my previous posts, the best cure for this is the 5 – Element Pagoda, everybody who is directly affected by this star should wear the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant. But the problem is it is quite difficult to find this pendant because it is no longer made, and the ones that are available are really expensive. However, a reader from the South contacted and told me that she might be able to supply a real gold Five Element Pagoda that might have a friendlier price. I have seen the picture of the first prototype of this pendant and it seems to be a good one. Will wait for the final output. So if you’re interested please hang on a little and let’s see whether this one works out. This time to shorten the process, I will have you contact her directly.
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.
