I’m on the road today stuck in traffic reviewing some messages when I remembered that there is a lunar eclipse later. Then I remembered that yesterday was just the Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival, which means we still have the Harvest Moon today, and with eclipse happening which will last 4 hours, signifies something quite not nice.
I decided to write this while stuck in traffic and hope to be able to upload this using a pocket Wi-Fi. Hope it works.
If you were familiar with Feng Shui you would know that eclipse often affects the good chi of the universe, this usually signifies some sort of worldwide bad luck happenings. It can be war, weird weather occurrence, world market disturbance, etc. On top of that, if we are out when an eclipse happens, we will also get affected on a personal level. For those who are experiencing some bad luck, it is very important to avoid being out of the house during a lunar eclipse or even a solar eclipse. You should even avoid opening your windows and look at the eclipse.
The effect of the lunar eclipse happening later is worse than an ordinary eclipse. Why? Because it happens right after the Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival and as you might have read, Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival is actually a celebration of good harvest. Feng Shui experts have also taken this as an opportunity to ‘cleanse’ or renew oneself from the negative chi of the previous month, which is the Hungry Ghost Month.
For an eclipse to happen right after the Mid – Autumn Festival signifies that there might be some be some crisis or calamity that is about to happen soon. On a personal level the effect of this eclipse will be most likely has something to do with financial luck or wealth luck or bad luck. But of course, if you already have a problem and you are out of the house while the eclipse is happening, then chances that problem will intensify, regardless whether the problem is financial or personal.
Furthermore, although technically not covered by Feng Shui or Eastern Astrology, base on Western Astrology we are still under the Mercury Retrograde, so this Mercury Retrograde should further impede some problems and add to the negative effects of a lunar eclipse happening on a harvest moon. This also signifies that it may affect relationship problems other than those what was mentioned above.
The best things to do is stay indoor and close your windows and doors. Whether indoor or if you can’t avoid being outdoor while the eclipse is happening, it is best to totally protected. For this, I would strongly suggest for you to wear the Kalachakra symbol made of gold or jade, Vajrapani Ruel, or Surangama Mantra Amulet. If you don’t have these, you can wear the symbolic script of the manta of Buddha Amitabha, or Bodhisattva Vajrapani, or the Deity Kalachakra.

In the preceding post, I talked about the how salt is used as main and very essential ingredient in making the Catholic Church’s holy water.
Today, I would like to share with you another thing about salt.
Once, while having dinner with some High School friends, one of them accidentally spilled salt. I told him that spilling salt is a sign that bad luck is about to come, meaning a bad thing or bad things may soon happen. As I was about to proceed to tell him how to counter or stop the bad luck from happening, he sort of rudely told me that he is a Christian and that he don’t believes in such things. Another friend who knows my interest in Feng Shui signal for me to just keep quiet. Until now, I still don’t know whether I did the right thing.
For soon after that incident, that particular High School friend entered into a bad business and he almost lost everything. He was reminded of his encounter with me and asked me as to what he should do. Luckily, at that time the Vajrapani Ruel is already available and so he got one. Soon he started to put his business back and got back what he lost.
But the question is whether he can do anything when he spilled the salt to stop the bad luck? The answer is yes. He can be more cautious and be aware of the warning. He can also simply pinch a salt from the spilled salt and throw it over his shoulders while chanting OM AMI DEWA HRIH or OM AH HUM or OM MANI PADME HUM seven times. By doing that one can surely prevent the bad luck from happening or at the very least, it can help you from receiving the full impact of the bad luck.
Having said that, I would like to clarify that spilling salt doesn’t bring bad luck. Spilling salt signifies that bad luck may happen. So the bad luck is already there and is forthcoming, spilling salt serves as a warning.
