Last week I wrote about the “2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalanced Year Filled With A Number of Good Stars” Part (1) One and Part (2) Two. Since then I have been bombarded with a lot, and I mean a lot, of emails. I would randomly open ten to 15 emails per day, and from that day on all the emails that I have been receiving are all about asking for the 2016 forecast for each of the 12 Chinese animal zodiacs. I’m sure there are other emails but the ones that I opened are all about the forecast for Chinese zodiacs. Sorry that it took longer than expected. I was busy and as always doing the calculations for this is not easy.

In the past years, I have been receiving a lot of positive feedbacks about my forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs or Chinese Horoscope, and while I totally appreciate it, as always, I would like to caution all readers that these animal zodiac forecast are general readings, a lot of your luck will still depend on your Bazi or Paht Chee chart.

You should also read the first 2 parts of this forecast because it gives you a whole picture of what are the overall energies of the year. For example, the ruling star if the year is #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, thus it is important that all people should be careful and protects themselves from getting sick and to be more vigilant to avoid accidents, because the Illness Star also causes accidents. Having said this, it is important to note that people born under the sign of Ox and Tiger are especially susceptible to this because they are already afflicted with the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang (#5 Flying Star). The cures for this are the Illness Suppression Amulet specially made by my Guru Lama, which is highly consecrated and further empowered by a Dharma Pill.

Remember that the Northeast is also afflicted by the #5 Flying Star (also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star), which is considered as one of the most dreadful star, and this year, it is extra powerful because it is strengthen by it’s ‘housing’ direction, the North East. The best remedy for this is to put a brand new Five Element Pagoda empowered by some mantra or sutra amulets that are consecrated or blessed. People staying on this sector and people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger should likewise protect themselves by wearing a 5 – Element Pagoda pendant made of gold. And carry with them some three to five powerful amulets.  These can be the following:

  1. Vajrapani Ruel
  2. Heart Sutra Amulet
  3. Surangama Mantra Amulet
  4. Medicine Buddha Sutra Amulet
  5. Lama Atisha Amulet
  6. Diamond Cutter Sutra Amulet
  7. Universal Gateway of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin Sutra Amulet
  8. Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet
  9. Illness Suppression Amulet

    Illness Suppression Amulet3

    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.

But more than that people with kua number 2, 6, 7, and 8 are also afflicted by the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang because these are people who has a lucky direction that faces Northeast. And common sense dictates that since that they having this in the Northeast will prevent them from accessing this sector thus it is better to get protected from the said star also. to know your Kua number just access an online Kua calculator.

Don’t think that this is going to be bad year, as I said it always a mixture of good and bad, it is never or at least it is rarely all bad or all good, well, maybe except for the case of the people born under the sign of the Ox, this year it is going to be quite a challenging year for them. But I’m getting ahead of myself and if you read on you will see that while the prognosis for the year is not very nice the individual Chinese Horoscope or Chinese Animal Zodiac will mostly have good luck, again with the exception of the Ox. More on this on the actual forecast of each animal sign below.

Note: If you have read your part and wish to skip the other animal zodiac please go to the bottom part for some added reminders. I initially wanted to post this separately but realized that it is better to post this as a whole to avoid repetitions of some parts.

So as always, let me begin with the…

RAT

RAT Chinese Zodiac

General Traits: Artistic, imaginative, creative, talented, charming, resourceful, opportunist, ambitious, lively, pleasure-seeking, problem solver, resilient, sometimes unscrupulous, selfish, short tempered, spendthrift, insecure, usually successful, tend to gossip.

Last year should have been a generally good year for people born under the sign of the Rat. The good news is good things will continue to happen to the people born under the year of the Rat, because this is generally a good year for you. As mentioned in the first part of the forecast, we are lacking for the water element, but a Rat born person’s basic element is Water and so this already gives you some advantage.

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.

As long as you continue to be hard working and optimistic you will see that you will be quite lucky this year. But it is quite important to not let your guard down, because you are afflicted with the #7 Flying Star (Violent Star). This means that you have to be careful of people who might get jealous and wish you to do you harm, thus it is very important for you not to be flamboyant about your successes. Furthermore, this might manifest in a way that you might be cheated or robbed. You might also encounter some kind of violence. Thus it is very important for you to have one of the following: Vajrapani Ruel, Kalachakra Pendant (gold) (to understand more about the Kalachakra you can read my post last year about the 2015 Holy Trinity of Protection), Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Base on the 24 Mountain Stars formula, you are afflicted with a Yin House Star. This might hinder your successes by creating some sort of mental backlog, such as depression. But if you already have the Vajrapani Ruel, Kalachakra Pendant (gold), or Surangama Mantra Amulet, you no longer need to worry about this star. But should you wish to deal with this particular star separately you can also wear a Prayer Wheel.

You are also facing the Three Killings, and as I always said, this is something that is quite easy to deal with. Just be busy and you would have already dealt with this. Or you can carry the image of the 3 Celestial Guardians.

3 CELESTIAL GUARDIAN W.IMPLEMENTS (TLT-GOLD)

The Three Celestial Guardians are mystical celestial beings.

This year you are also extremely blessed with a strong Lung – Ta or personal Wind Horse luck, this should aid you in achieving your goals. And having this has already given you some advantage against your ‘competitors’ unless of course they are also born under the year of the Rat. With this always remember that you can be quite successful this year.

medicine buddha pendantbAs mentioned all people are somewhat afflicted by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Stars, which has become the ruling star of the year. The Rat is no exception to this affliction, thus it is quite important that you either have the Illness Star Suppression Amulet, or a Medicine Buddha Mantra Amulet or a Medicine Buddha Pendant. A Holy Gourd or Wu Lou (also spelled as Wulou) will act as a secondary cure for this star.

 

It should be noted that the 8, 32, 44, and 68 years old Rats are the most afflicted.

As mentioned, success is quite within reach of a person born under the sign of the Rat. But more than that wealth luck is also quite within reach especially for the 44 and 68 – years – old Rats. The rest of the Rats should be a little more careful in their investments but wealth is also within their reach if they play their cards wealth. To enhance wealth luck you might want to wear an image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha.

OX

Ox Chinese Zodiac

Very intelligent, logic and clear thinking, calm but stubborn, independent, trusting, industrious, deep and original in thought, reliable, a good leader, intolerant, peace loving.

Since I started writing my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, I have been warning you, my reader, about the unusually strong #5 Flying Star (also called Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang) which flies to the Northeast sector this year. As you might have known already the North East sector is the sector that rules or houses the Ox and Tiger, that means these two signs are severely affected by the already dreadful Wu Wang, made more dangerous because it is further strengthen by the energies of the Northeast sector. This affliction together with the energies of the year with the stars of the 24 Mountain Stars has made this year of the Fire Monkey a very challenging one for people born on the year of the Ox, with the Tiger being ‘saved’ by a good star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. Having said that people born under the year of the Ox will have to find their inner strength in dealing with things. This year your motto should be PERSEVERE AND THINGS WILL GET BETTER, and remember one year is such a short time, little did you know the year that has just started is about to end, and keep your eye on a good 2017 (base on the Flying Stars formula) and don’t focus on the bad 2016. Meaning this year should go aim for the long term and not the short term.

One other concern though is that people born under the sign of the Ox has conflicting basic elements with that of the year’s (2016) elements base of the Bazi. Thus Ox born people will find their life chi and spirit chi quite mediocre, if not weak, thus creating more blockages for the year. Thus it is important to counter this by mentally reminding yourself to be strong.

I have said this across all the forecast for the year but it is really worth repeating. The Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang is much stronger this year, and it is a dreaded star because it can bring about loss of money, illness so coupled with the illness star that rules the year Ox born people becomes more susceptible to illness and accidents also, not to mention it can bring tremendous relationships and other forms of bad luck. Thus all Ox born people, as well as Tiger will need to put a Five – Element Pagoda in the Northeast sector of their house or office. I strongly suggest using a new one for the year and something that can be opened. On the top part of the Five Element Pagoda, instead of the usual soil, put a crystal, a clear quartz will do. At the bottom part of the 5 – Element Pagoda put 3 – 5 of the following amulets:

 

 

Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet

THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder with the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside it.

Furthermore, it is very important that all Ox (and Tiger) born people to wear a 5 – Element Pagoda Pendant made of gold. It has to be made of gold. Admittedly, this is quite difficult to find, as of to date, I only know of two possible sellers, one is Lillian Too’s Feng Shui Megamall (click here) and the other one is a private seller that is made to order. Although Lillian Too’s is more expensive, the craftmanship is so much better. I have also asked my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and his Taoist Priest friend about an alternative cure for this, but to this date most, if not all, senior, non – commercialized Feng Shui experts agree that only the Five – Element Pagoda remains to be the most effective and ONLY cure. For this year we further empower it with the power of powerful holy amulets. So aside from wearing the Five – Element Pagoda pendant in gold, it is also imperative that you carry three to five of the above mentioned amulets.

Likewise, everybody who stays in the Northeast sector of their office or building should put the Five – Element Pagoda empowered by three to five holy amulets and should wear the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant and carry three to five of the holy amulets with them at all times.

But the problem doesn’t stop there, as mentioned above the basic element of an Ox person conflicts with the elements of the year, thus creating more problems for Ox people, thus it is important that an Ox person should have an additional protection by wearing a Kalachakra Pendant made of gold or clear quartz or jade (to understand more about the Kalachakra you can read my post last year about the 2015 Holy Trinity of Protection). Plastic Kalachakra pendants will not work. For Ox people who has low water element on their chart, or high metal and high fire elements should also make sure that they wear a blue stone as bracelet or pendant. I strongly suggest the stone Tanzanite for it’s special energies. More on that on succeeding posts.

The Ox’s personal Lung – Ta is also weak, thus making you more susceptible to defeat or loser attitude. To counter this you can wear a Wind Horse Pendant made of gold or carry the Vajrapani Ruel.

Spirit Chi is also weak and this will make people born under the sign of the Ox susceptible to negative energies. Wearing a Prayer Wheel should help counter this.

As I said, all Ox born people should be more careful about accidents and illness, because the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang has made you more susceptible to the illness star. However, having said that the 7, 31, and 67 – years – old Ox person should be even more careful. Again wearing an image of the Medicine Buddha or having the Medicine Buddha Mantra Amulet or Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel or Illness Suppression Amulet should help avert some big problems. But it might be good for all Ox born people to chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA or recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra. But let me stress here that although I have put emphasis on the 7, 31, and 67 – years – old Ox people, it doesn’t mean that they are the only ones who will get affected. All Ox people will be severely affected by this star because you also house the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang.

As expected, wealth luck might be quite difficult for Ox – born people, with exception of the 43 and 64 – years – old Ox person. However, for the rest of the Ox, it is quite important to take caution in their investments because wealth luck and financial luck, unlike in 2015, will be quite elusive for you. Thus it is quite beneficial for you to have some wealth amulets like the THREE LEGGED TOAD, image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha. The 55 – year – old Ox will suffer the most ‘bad luck’ this year in terms of Wealth, so it is important that aside from having the image of the wealth gods or amulets you should wear a Kalachakra pendant made of gold.

Ox born people who are into sales and service industry will be hit the hardest with the wealth and financial bad luck. Thus it is also quite important that you wear a Prayer Wheel and Kuan Yin with Sutra or Kuan Yin Jade pendant.

Likewise, Ox born people with high water element in their chart will experience some reprieve from this bad luck. However, Ox born people with no water and high earth or metal or fire element should take extra caution. Because these contributes in the strengthening of bad luck and misfortunes cause by the Wu Wang. As such, aside from wearing a blue stone, I strongly recommend that you wear a Wu Lou w/c is a secondary illness cure but it also symbolizes the liquid of health and wealth. Thus this was use by Kuan Yin in pouring his/her wealth and health blessing. The Wulou or Holy Gourd should be made of a blue or green stone.

Lastly, the Tai Sui also indirectly affects the Ox so it is good to carry with you an image of the PiYao (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie).

As you see, this year’s forecast for the people born under the sign of the Ox is quite bad. In fact, this is the worst I have ever seen since I started writing my annual forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Horoscope). However, luckily for us, our Zodiac Ally the Rooster will have a wonderful year. So it will be good to surround yourself with people born under the sign of the Rooster or surround yourself with images of Rooster. In fact, wearing an image of a Rooster made of gold or real jade should help a lot in alleviating your luck, especially if you ensure that you are protected.

 

TIGER

1TIGER

General Traits: Lucky, powerful, proud, aggressive, courageous, a good leader, vivacious, high self-confident, energetic, impulsive, dignified, handsome, self-concerned, arrogant.

Like the Ox, the Tiger is also afflicted with the much stronger and very dreaded 5 – Yellow Star or Wu Wang or #5 Flying Star, which causes great misfortune especially financial loss. Thus all Tiger born people, as well as Ox, will need to put a Five – Element Pagoda in the Northeast sector of their house or office. I strongly suggest using a new one for the year and something that can be opened. On the top part of the Five Element Pagoda, instead of the usual soil, put a crystal, a clear quarts will do. At the bottom part of the 5 – Element Pagoda put 3 – 5 of the following amulets:

  1. Vajrapani Ruel
  2. Surangama Mantra Amulet
  3. Heart Sutra Amulet
  4. Illness Suppression Amulet
  5. Medicine Buddha Mantra Amulet
  6. Lama Atisha Amulet
  7. Diamond Cutter Mantra Amulet
  8. Universal Gateway of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin Sutra Amulet
  9. Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet

Furthermore, it is very important that all Tiger (and Ox) born people to wear a 5 – Element Pagoda Pendant made of gold. It has to be made of gold because you need the energy of the metal coupled with the yang energy of gold to suppressed the energy of the Wu Wang. . Admittedly, this is quite difficult to find, as of to date, I only know of two possible sellers, one is Lillian Too’s Feng Shui Megamall (click here) and the other one is a private seller that is made to order. I have also asked my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and his Taoist Priest friend about an alternative cure for this, but to this date most, if not all, senior, non – commercialized Feng Shui experts agree that only the Five – Element Pagoda remains to be the most effective and ONLY cure. For this year we further empower it with the power of powerful holy amulets. So aside from wearing the Five – Element Pagoda pendant in gold, it is also imperative that you carry three to five of the above mentioned amulets.

Likewise, everybody who stays in the Northeast sector of their office or building should put the Five – Element Pagoda empowered by three to five holy amulets and should wear the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant and carry three to five of the holy amulets with them at all times.

But unlike the Ox, Tiger born people will have a strong Lung – Ta this 2016, therefore this will help bring some success for them. Wealth luck will also be quite good for some Tiger born people, and the key to your success is to look for a mentor or an ‘elder’ who can guide you through things. Do not do everything on your own.

You are also in direct conflict with the Tai Suey God of the year, so it is important that you carry with you an image of the Pi Yao, which is the best cure to pacify the Tai Sui God.

But the very good news for the Tiger born people is the presence of the Big Auspicious star on its side. This, I would say, is the saving grace of the Tiger; because of this single powerful star you have the chance to become very successful this year. To help strengthen the effect of this star, it is highly recommended that you wear an image of one of the following: Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, Maitreya Buddha or Kuan Kong.

But like the Ox, because of the presence of the Five – Yellow Star, the Tiger born people are also made more susceptible to the Illness Star or #2 Flying Star. Thus you will have to be care about your health and safety, do not engage in dangerous sports and activities. All Tigers are affected but the 30 and 54 – years – old Tigers should take extra more precaution. The best cure for this is to have one of the following: Illness Star Suppression Amulet, Medicine Buddha Pendant, and Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel. It is also important for you to chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA – or recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra.

Wealth luck for Tigers ranges from moderate to quite lucky. 18, 54, and 78 – years – old Tiger born people will do quite well in creating money for themselves. To strengthen wealth luck it is quite important for you to wear a Citrine with a 9 – Eye DZI or a Maitreya Buddha Pendant.

 

RABBIT

RABBIT chinese zodiac

General Traits: Talented, ambitious, shrewd, patient, cautious, diplomatic, sophisticated, cultured, old-fashioned, gentle, good-heated, symphatetic, affectionate, loving, often artistic, self-indulge, over-attach to people/objects, emotional, moody.

Lucky! You are quite lucky this year. Your innate capability to appear nice will bring you to success and good luck this year. You have a natural charm that you can use on people and they will be quite supportive towards you. However, don’t let any of these get into your head and never abuse people who help you get to your good luck or success.

Because of the natural alignment of the year’s energies, the first part of the year might give you a few bumps and pitfalls but keep a positive disposition in life and you’ll find the year filled with wonderful good surprises for you. But remember, two Big Auspicious stars flank you and this alone should make the year almost perfect for you. Never mind that the Reducing Star tempered it. But even the reducing star can easily be remedied. All you have to do is to wear and spin a prayer wheel and carry with you a Surangama Mantra Amulet, or a gold HUM pendant and the Reducing Star as if never existed at all. And to enhance the Big Auspicious Stars you can simply chant the Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantras:

  1. OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PAHT
  2. OM HANU PASHA BAHRA HE YE SOHA

But you also have the #9 Multiplying and Future Star, so pray that you have deposited quite some good karma in the past so that you may reap it’s good luck now. And try to sincerely do good deeds, because the more good deeds you do now the more luck you’ll have.

Your Life Chi is quite weak though, so remember your greatest enemy this year is losing hope, but simply wearing one of the following should help remedy this problem: Surangama Mantra Amulet, Kuan Yin, Om Pendant (gold), Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet.

Like everyone else you’ll be affected by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, especially if you are a 29, 53, and 89 – years – old Rabbit. To remedy this simply wear the Illness Suppression Amulet made by my Guru Lama.

Wealth luck will be quite attainable, but the 20, 41, 65 years – old Rabbit you will need a little push. Simply get yourself an image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha and this would have solve the problem.

 

DRAGON

DRAGON chinese zodiac

General Traits: Intelligent, full of energy, witty, quixotic, artistic, enthusiastic, inventive and original in thought, enigmatic, perfectionist, humorous, headstrong, generous, egostical, aristocratic, over-demanding, prone to worry, quick-tempered.

Remember these things – Big Auspicious Stars, Small Auspicious Stars (2 of them) that’s what you have this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. Needless to say this is quite a lucky year for you. Not only in terms of being auspicious but also with success and different opportunities arising simply for you. Not to mention you also have the #1 Flying Star or the White Victory Star and is on the side of #9 Flying Star and #6 Flying Star also known as Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star! How lucky can one person get????

This will be a year that is extremely smooth sailing and you will feel like you’re on a ship where the current and the wind are all going towards one direction. And that direction is the direction of success, wealth, auspiciousness, and opportunities!

There is no need for you for any charm or amulet unless of course you simply want to be ‘greedy’ in a good way and further enhanced these energies. All you have to do is carry the Vajrapani Ruel, or wear an image of one of the following: Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, Amitabha Buddha, or Maitreya Buddha.

The only two things that you need to be wary about is that you have a weak Lung – Ta and Life Chi. But the weak Lung – Ta is easily remedied by wearing or carrying the image of the Lung – Ta or Windhorse or a Surangama Mantra Amulet. And the weak life chi, which may manifest by making yourself less competitive for fear of failure, is easily remedied by wearing the Deity Life Chi Amulet. These are your biggest afflictions for the year so to ensure a great year it is important for you to deal with them.

And like everybody else, you are affected by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, especially Dragons that are 16 and 53 – years – old this year. To remedy this simply wear the Illness Suppression Amulet and chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA.

In terms of wealth luck, as mentioned all Dragons will have this, but the ones who are to really benefit from this are the 28 and 64 – years – old Dragons. The 53 – year – old Dragon will have this provided he maintains an upbeat and positive outlook. To further enhance this luck, simply wear the image of Kuan Kong.

 

SNAKE

SNAKE chinese zodiac

General Traits: Proud, determined, wise, ambitious, talented in many directions, almost always successful, courageous when necessary, passionate, intelligent, quick-witted, cool-headed, charming, mistrusting.

Another sign that should be quite lucky despite the presence of some unlucky star is the Snake; the Snake’s secret friendship with the Monkey should bring in some luck for the Snake.

The Snake has the #1 Flying Star, which is the White Victory Star, this star is sure to bring victory to most, if not all, the Snake’s undertakings. The Snake will naturally have the winning edge this year. To further enhance this star, it will be nice for you to carry or wear the Victory Banner.

You also have a Small Auspicious Star with you, and thus it should bring some career luck for you.

But you are in side conflict with the Three Killings, and simply carrying an image of the Three Celestial Guardians should remedy this, or simply keep yourself busy.

Your basic element is also in tune with the element of the year’s bazi or Paht Chee chart and so this should give you added energies by way of strengthening your personal confidence and inner strength. Your spirit chi is also quite blooming, and so you are not quite susceptible to negative chi especially those who are thrown to you by angry or jealous people or people with ill intent.

Again, like everyone else, you are also affected by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star that causes not only illness but also accidents. Greatly affected by this are 15, 51, and 75 – years –old Snake. To counter this simply wears the Illness Suppression Amulet.

 

HORSE

Horse chinese zodiac

General Traits: Mostly Popular and loves the attention, admired, friendly, sexually-appealing, carefree, optimistic, pleasure-seeking, imaginative, inquisitive, hardworking, loyal, good talker, capable, practical, energetic, impulsive, moody and egoistic

You are the only animal sign the benefits from the powerful combination of the 168 powerful combos. The 168 powerful combos are the #1, #6, #8 Flying Stars or namely the White Victory Star, the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star, and Wealth Star. For all intent and purpose you should have been the luckiest sign amongst all the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac but the presence of the some unwanted star from the 24 Mountain Star Formula tempered this luck.

Nevertheless, it is still a progressive year for the Horse. The White Victory Star makes sure that you maintain some winning edge in all your endeavors, the #6 Flying Star will bring in the blessings of some powerful mentors and the blessings of Heavenly Beings and Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Plus Wealth Luck is definitely within your reach. To further enhance these stars you can wear the Victory Banner, an image of Kuan Yin (preferably with Sutra) and a Three – Legged Toad.

3 Celestial

The only thing that prevented you to be the luckiest sign is the fact that you have the 3 – Killings and a Xa Xing (please refer to the part 2 of the forecast to know what is Xa Xing). Again the Three Killings is not so much of a problem, all you have to do is keep yourself busy or carry the image of the Three Celestial Guardians. The Xa Xing is entirely different thing, you will have to take care of this because can this bring some great misfortune. For this you need to carry the Vajrapani Ruel, or Kalachakra Pendant in gold (to understand more about the Kalachakra you can read my post last year about the 2015 Holy Trinity of Protection). You can also put a Prayer Wheel near you and rotate it everyday as an added protection.

And like everyone else health luck is affected because the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes both illness and accidents is the ruling star of the year. The 2, 38, and 62 – years – old Horses should take extra precaution. To counter this it is quite important for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet and chant the mantra of Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADSA SAMUGATE SOHA.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

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.

Lastly, although your wealth luck is good, remember that because of the natural energies of the year you have to be careful about how you handle your finances. It will be good if you carry a Wealth Lock amulet, you can wear this as a pendant, and if it’s made of gold so much the better.

 

SHEEP / GOAT

sheep chinese zodiac

General Traits: Quiet, reserved, symphathetic, sincere, patient, unemotional, practical, realistic, common sense always prevails, optimistic, sincere, non-judgemental, ambitious, determined, can’t work under stress.

People born in the year of the Sheep or Goat should an almost balanced mixture of good and bad luck this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. You have a very powerful Lung – Ta or Windhorse luck this year and this should help you get your way into being successful, and for because you have the #8 Flying Star, which is also known as the Wealth Star, expect money to be quite within reach, especially if you wear some gold and a blue semi – precious stone as a bracelet. To further enhance this wealth luck, you can also wear an image of Maitreya Buddha or the Happy Fat Buddha or a Three – Legged Toad.

However, you are slightly weakened by a medium strength life chi and spirit chi. You might say that this is simply medium strength and it shouldn’t be so bad. True, but in the case of person born under the sign of the Sheep, this is quite a serious matter, especially if we take into consideration the general energies of the year. One way to contract this medium strength life chi is for you to always try to keep a positive outlook, or simply wear a Deity Life Chi Amulet or a Kuan Kong. To counter the effects of having a medium strength spirit or spiritual chi, you can wear a Kuan Yin (preferably with Sutra).

 

The #8 Flying Star may also be tempered by the fact that you have the Three Killings on your left side of the chart, and a Yin House Star and an Annual Xa Xing. . The Three Killings is easily remedied simply by carrying an image of the Three Celestial Guardians, and the Yin House can be remedied by wearing a Prayer Wheel or Kuan Yin with Sutra pendant, but the Annual Xa Xing, which is a serious problem that can lead to serious set backs and bad luck should be dealt with. Carry the Vajrapani Ruel or wear an Amitabha Buddha pendant for this.

Like everyone else, you are definitely also affected by the #2 Flying Star known as the Illness Star. But the 37 and 61 – years – old year of the Sheep should be the one who take utmost care. Thus it is important for you to have the Illness Suppression Amulet.

 

MONKEY

General Traits: Lively, quick-witted, crafty, mercenary, opportunist, original thinker, clever, innovative, self-centred, devious,amusing, sociable, ammiable, very ambitious.

The first part of the year should prove to be a little challenging for the people born under the sign of the Monkey, but that is not to say that the year is going to be bad one for you. On the contrary, this is going to be a good year for the Monkeys. The slight struggle in the first part of the year is due to the conflicting energies with the basic element energy of the Monkey and of the year, but simply knowing this should provide you with some buffer already and remember that good things are about to come your way, and that this struggle is simply a temporary struggle. To help you with the initial struggle and totally obliterate it and pave for an earlier success it will be good if you can have either a Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant, Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, Kuan Kong, or a Prayer Wheel. Again, just one of these will do.

One of the most wonderful news for people born under the sing of the Monkey is that you have the #8 Flying Star, which is one of the most coveted star! If you read the first two parts of this forecast, or if you’re familiar with Feng Shui, you might remember that the #8 Flying Star is also called the Wealth Star, and as the name implies it brings wealth luck or financial luck or money luck to you! It will be great if you can enhance this luck by wearing an image of Maitreya Buddha or a Three Legged Toad!

What’s more since the star lands in a sector that is ruled by the earth element, it is quite stronger this year, but just in case you want to give it a further boost, you can wear a citrine bracelet further enhanced by the 9 – Eye DZI bead.citrine dzi piyao

However, the Tai Sui God of the year also resides in your sector, and he can be either a great push for you to have a good luck or you can earn his ire and send you tons of bad luck. But the good thing is appeasing him is quite easy, all you have to do is carry an image of a Piyao (also called Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie) or the image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun.

One other slight hump in the journey to great success is that you have a Yin House Star also. But simply wearing (again) a Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant or Prayer Wheel this would have been managed already.

ammonite pendant_388x470

An Ammonite Fossilized Shell is a very powerful tool to negate negative energies. It also helps us achieve our goal and bring us financial and career success. However, ammonites are very expensive because this fossil actually preserved the shells formed by prehistoric cephalopods, which are extinct distant relatives of squids. I have two ammonites. I got one that’s really affordable and I thought I got a good discount, it turn out that its a fake ammonite. I then looked for a real ammonite and eventually found one but it did cost quite a small fortune. But I’m happy with it because fake ammonites are basically useless.

However, this is a year that your life chi and personal lung – ta or Windhorse luck is weak. A weak life chi might lead to confusion that in turn will lead to wrong decisions, and it also might make you a bit easier to put down. To manage this you can simple wear an Ammonite (just make sure it’s real because there are a lot of fake ammonite. An Ammonite is also a good wealth amulet) or the Vajrapani Ruel. For a weak Lung – Ta or Windhorse luck you can also wear a Windhorse pendant or carry the 9 – Ringed Sword of Kuan Kong. But the great news is your Spirit chi is quite strong, and this means that you won’t be affected by the negative energies around you.

 

But like what I have been repeating again and again in this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, all of us, everybody is affected by the #2 Flying Star, which has become the ruling star of the year because it landed on the center, this star causes illness and accidents so you should also be careful and everyone should wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha. But the 24, 60 and 84 – years – old Monkeys should pay extra caution. It will do well if they chant the mantra of the Medicine Buddha everyday. The mantra is – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. Or you can recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra.

It is worth mentioning here that while all Monkeys will have great financial or wealth luck, it is the 24 and 48 – years – old Monkeys that will find themselves totally reaping this luck!

 

ROOSTER

Rooseter chinese zodiac

General Traits: Moody, dreamy, talkative, vain, outgoing, extravagant, over-confident, self-confident, attentive to friends, rarely successful, flamboyant, unaided, dignified, handsome, headstrong, arrogant, vain.

When I did my calculations and analysis of the Dragon and Rabbit and started writing my forecast about them, I thought that they would be the luckiest Chinese animal zodiacs of the year, but I was wrong because the Rooster seems to be the luckiest sign of the year. The only affliction is a side affliction aside from the #2 Flying Star (Illness Star) that affects all animal signs, and #3 Flying Star (Argumentative Star), which for the case of the Rooster is going to be quite manageable. But the real good news is that aside from having the #4 Flying Star (also known as Romance and Scholastic Star), and being affected also by the #8 Flying Star (Wealth Star), they have not one, not two, but three (3), yes three Big Auspicious Stars! This is quite rare and can it get any better?!!!!!! As I said, this is quite rare and it is obvious that this is a record-breaking incident. Good luck will surely come your way!!!!! These good luck may manifest in unending opportunities, wealth or money luck, abundance of good fortune! On top of it, your windfall luck for the year is quite great so expects a lot of unexpected (yes it sounds contradictory) money luck!

The #4 Flying Star, also known as Romantic and Scholastic Star, indicates that your romantic or love life is going to be good, especially if you’re single. If you want to enhance this, you can a pair of Mandarin Ducks made of Rose Quartz. However, for attached or married couple this may mean extra marital affairs. To safeguard your love life from this wear the Double Happiness Symbol in gold or if you’re married tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String at the foot of your bed. All Rooster can benefit from wearing the special Turquoise bead of my Guru Lama that has the Double Happiness Sign and Longevity Sign.

Turquoise beads

These Turquoise beads of my Guru Lama are highly blessed. Please note that these are mala beads broken into single powerful beads for people who wants to avail them to help the Sentient Beings in Tibet and Nepal.

 

The #4 Flying Star is also the Scholastic Star, so this indicates that students will have a better and easier time in school, as well as those whose pursuit for wealth luck involves scholastic endeavors like research.

As mentioned you are highly blessed with 3 Big Auspicious Stars from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula!!!! And this means that only good things await people born under the sign of the Rooster!!!! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself with so much good luck, so much good things happening at the same time that it has become overwhelming!!!!! Really, everything will just seem to be working really well for you, and they do!!!!

The only draw back is the your Lung – Ta or Windhorse luck is mediocre, but all the good news that will be coming your way will definitely more than compensate for it. Also your Life Chi is at it’s lowest, but simply wearing the Deity Life Chi Amulet or the Surangama Mantra Amulet will remedy this.

Like everybody else, all Roosters should be careful with the Illness Star. This is a serious concern for all signs and thus it is quite important for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha or Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel. The 23, 59, and 83 – years old are the most affected amongst the Rooster sign.

 

DOG

DOG

Loyal, just, strong sense of morality, reliable, dutiful, patient, caring, sincere, compassionate, honest, generous, intelligent, confident, idealistic, affectionate, a worthy leader, tend to become lazy and depressed, pessimistic.

The key phrase for the Dog this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey are “Don’t Bark” and “If You Have to Bark Please Think Twice!” because this year you are ruled by the #3 Flying Star, which is the Argumentative Star or what some people call as the Quarrel Star. You will find yourself getting into a lot of arguments and possibly some court case. On top of it, you may get short tempered and hot headed. The key thing to do is to focus on the real issue and do not get side tracked with minor irritating concerns. Normally, the cure for this is the Ksitigarbha Fireball, but this year, it is best to avoid this because of the already strong fire element of the year. So the best thing for this is to wear the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant made of gold. This will help pacify the effects of the said star. However, for Dogs who are already involve in legal case or court cases, it will be nice to add the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet (on top of the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant) to help ensure that you win the said cases, this is because having this star on your end also means that it is likely that you will be in the losing end of the said cases.

On top of that you have to be careful also about having arguments with your loved ones or business partners, because this might escalate into a big fight. Again, this year, like last year, the best cure for that is the Kuan Yin with Sutra pendant.

You are also afflicted with a bad star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. This may manifest in terms of you losing some valued relationships (as also influenced by the Argumentative Star) and also wealth loss. To help counter this, you can donate a blood or wear a Prayer Wheel or a Surangama Mantra Amulet.

The good news is a Big Auspicious Star and a Small Auspicious Star that may manifest in forms of wonderful opportunities flank you. Should you want to enhance this star, it might be good for you to wear an Ammonite or a Kuan Kong.

Like everyone else, you will have to be careful with your health and safety because the year is ruled by the Illness Star or #2 Flying Star as it lands on the center. So to counter this, it is highly recommended that you wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, or an image of the Medicine Buddha. Dogs that 22, 46, and 82 – years – old should take most care. It will also be god if they wear the Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel.

 

PIG/BOAR

PIG

General Traits: Just, discerning, wise, intellectual and well-informed, lucky with money and in friendship, always admired, self-indulgent, cultured, loyal, reliable, naïve, tend to get frustrated due to lack of knowledge

Despite of some afflictions indicated in your Flying Star Chart and 24 Mountain Stars Formula, people born under the sign of the Pig are going to be one of the luckiest this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. This is because your basic element is compatible with the energies of the year. More than that you are likely to experience this good luck as soon as the year starts. You will also experience help from the heavenly beings especially if you invite images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Taoist Gods or even Catholic images of Saints.

The biggest concern for the Pig/Boar is, like the Dog, you are severely and directly affected by the #3 Argumentative Star also known as the Quarrel Star. This star might damper some of the good things that is bound to happen to you. You will find yourself getting into a lot of arguments and possibly some court cases. On top of it, you may get short tempered and hot headed. You might find yourself also attracting other people of the same temperament or influence them to have the same temperament thus making things much worse. The key thing to do is to focus on the real issue and do not get side tracked with minor irritating concerns. Normally, the cure for this is the Ksitigarbha Fireball, but this year, it is best to avoid this because of the already strong fire element of the year. So the best thing for this is to wear the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant made of gold. This will help pacify the effects of the said star. However, for Pigs or Boars who are already involve in legal case or court cases, it will be nice to add the Vajrapani Ruel (on top of the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant) to help ensure that you win the said cases, this is because having this star on your end also means that it is likely that you will be in the losing end of the said cases.

But as mentioned you will also receive ‘help’ from the heavens this is because you are lucky enough to have the Heaven’s Seal brought about by the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. This star shall bring you blessings from Heavenly Beings and Buddhas and Bodhisattvas or Deities or Taoist Gods. To further enhance this star it will be good to wear an image of a Buddha like Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha or Amitabha Buddha. Or that of Bodhisattvas like Kuan Yin (also known or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Kwan Yin, Guan Yin), Maitreya Buddha, Sangharama Bodhisattva (Kuan Kong, Guan Gong). Having them both as an image at home and as pendant should work.

It is worthy to note that the Heaven’s Seal might also bring you some people in your life that can help pave the way for you to attain success or your objectives.

Furthermore, you also have the Small Auspicious Star and this should bring you some opportunities that may be small from the start, but it is up to you to make them big. Having said that, you can enhance this star by wearing the Deity Life Chi Amulet or Ammonite or a nice semi – precious stone image of a Cicada.

You are indirectly affected by the Three Killings, but keeping yourself busy will definitely manage this star, or you can simply carry the image of the Three Celestial Guardians.

KALACHAKRA PENDANT

This is a Kalachakra Pendant designed by Lillian Too. She has included some mandala sands inside the pendant to make it more potent. I personally love this pendant and has one that is made of white gold. 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 for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

What is really nice about people born in the year of the Pig is that for this year your Chinese Horoscope reading indicates that your life chi, your personal lung – ta or Windhorse luck are quite strong, thus you will find yourself with a lot of inner strength and confidence. Another draw back though is that your Spirit chi is quite weak and you may find yourself easily affected by negative energies or negative chi. To safeguard yourself from this it is quite important for you to wear a gold Kalachakra pendant. Remember that it is important that it is made of gold. Secondary options are jade or clear quartz.

We are all affected by the #2 Flying Star also called Illness Star. So everyone should wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha. Chanting the Medicine Buddha mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA – and reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra are also important, especially for the 21, 45, and 81 – years – old Pigs or Boar.

 

This ends my annual forecast for 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs or Chinese Horoscope.

And as you can see that while the general reading of the year is not very good, the individual forecast of each of the Chinese Animal Zodiac or Animal Sign or Chinese Horoscope are mostly good, maybe with the exception of the Ox.

I will be the first one to say that this is reading is not 100% accurate because one will have to take into consideration. And regular readers will know that I always say this every year. But in the first two parts of the forecast, I have already told you how to calculate your Bazi or Paht Chee using some of the online Bazi calculators. Should you have a high water element on your chart, this year should be a little better, but if there is no water and you have a high fire and metal element on your chart, this should be a little be more challenging for you.

But remember, prayers work and it’s useless to know these things if one won’t be able to manage them. Sincere good deeds should also make a lot of wonders especially in tempering or eradicating bad luck.

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.

So in summary, generally speaking we should all have this year’s essential cures and these are the following:

  • Illness Suppression Amulet or Medicine Buddha Pendant.
  • Chant Medicine Buddha Mantra or Recite Medicine Buddha Sutra or both.
  • Check your Bazi or Paht Chee by using some of the online Bazi calculators and depending on the result (check Part 1 of this year’s forecast for the instructions) gets yourself a blue semi – precious or precious stone.

In essence, the above is this year’s Holy Trinity.

Please note also that if your age or animal zodiac was mentioned as one of those who is highly afflicted by the Illness Star, you may want to further protect yourself with the Blessed Turquoise Bead with the Longevity Sign and Lotus image that signifies renewing of energies. This is addition to the mentioned cures.

Also for this year, I have decided to stream line the recommended cures. Because the more cures I recommend, the more emails I receive asking whether what is the best cure. So what I did now is simply recommend those that will work best. I took into consideration availability of the cures, and in that case, if the initial cure may be difficult to find, I decided to add other cures. The only exception is regarding the Five Element Pagoda, which is the cure for the Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / #5 Flying Star, that is the only option as of now, and my Feng Shui Teacher and his Taoist Priest friend has stressed that as of to date all senior Feng Shui experts agrees that it is still the only effective cure. However, for this year since we need to strengthen the said cure, we added some powerful amulets. I know that the Five Element Pagoda pendant is quite difficult to find especially since it has to be in gold, but it available in some online store and by special request thru a private seller.

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.

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalanced Year Filled with A Number of Good Stars (Part 2)

Published December 22, 2015 by jptan2012

CNY-2016-fIn my previous post – 2016 Year of the Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalanced Year Filled With A Number of Good Stars (Part 1) – I talked about the first part of my annual analysis of the years. At this point, allow me to share that these are predictions but rather they are forecast base on a careful analysis. The past years saw a high level of forecast written on this blog, especially the one about Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda), the 2014 weird weather occurrence, and the Nepal Earthquake of last year. However, let me clarify that these are not done because of a gift of being a psychic, but rather this is done because of a careful analysis base on the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart, and the Four Flying Stars and 24 Mountains Formula. Part of this is studying how these three factors combined will affect the world.

This year a lot of people have been bothered and worried because they read somewhere that this is a BLACK YEAR or DARK YEAR. They had the impression that this is going to be a terrible year because this is a Black Year. So let me start off by discussing this.

Yes, it is true that 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is considered as a Black Year. While we should all be a little worried that 2016 is Black Year, there is no reason for us to be more worried than the usual Black Year. A Black Year is when a black star such as the #2 Flying Star (Illness Star), #3 Flying Star (Argumentative Star), #5 Flying Star (Five – Yellow Star or Wu Wang) and this is the most dreaded star, or #7 (Robbery Star) lands on the center and becomes the ruling star of the year. Having said this, 2015 with the #3 Flying Star being on the center is also considered as a black year. But as I said a Black Year is unavoidable and it happens a lot considering almost half of the flying stars are black stars. I think the only time that we should be more worried than usual is when the dreaded #5 Flying Star or Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang lands on the center thus becoming the ruling star. This happened last 2013, which is when Typhoon Yolanda happened, in fact, this is why I was so sure something bad going to happen in Visayas at that time. If you notice this is also when the problem with ISIS really started to become big, although we here in the Philippines or Asia is not so focus on this yet.

Having said that, while I clarified that we shouldn’t really be panicking if we have a Black Year, it doesn’t mean also that we should be complacent about it. There is a need to worry a little. But as I always said, what is Feng Shui if we cannot remedy these problems?

On the first part of this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui forecast I mentioned that this year’s 24 Mountain Stars Formula is worth note taking because we have a lot of good stars, as much as 8 Animal Zodiacs are greatly blessed by these stars, and in fact, this is what would save the Tiger, who is afflicted with the 5 – Yellow Star or Flying Star #5, from having such a bad year because the Tiger is blessed with some of these Auspicious Stars, and not just any auspicious star, a big one at that. Unfortunately, same can’t be said for those born in the year of the Ox. But again more on that on the succeeding forecast.

For those who are not familiar the 24 Mountain Stars Formula is another branch of Feng Shui. It has more than a 100 stars, and the truth is the more common one is 108 stars but there are Feng Shui experts and teachers who believes that it is 112 stars. I personally subscribed to 108 calculations. These stars are in turn divided into 5 different categories: Big Auspicious, Small Auspicious, Xa Xing (Killer Star or Killing Star) obviously these are stars that we want to avoid, Chao Xing (Struggle or Conflict Stars), and Yin Chia Xing (Yin House Stars).

It will be difficult to discuss here the different sub – categories but as of now, it is enough that you understand that the good stars are the Big Auspicious and Small Auspicious. The stars that we want to avoid are the Chao Xing and Yin Chia Xing. And the one that we really really want to get rid of is Xa Xing.

This year the East and West are flanked by Big Auspicious stars and so if your house is facing East or West, or if your room (bed room, office) is in the East or West side of the building then you are quite sure to benefit from these stars.

So not let me start with this year’ analysis.

THE CENTER HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ILLNESS STAR.

Effects:

As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. This star also causes some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. Because this becomes the ruling star of the year, all signs are affected. Furthermore, this becomes the ruling star so we all have to be careful.

Feng Shui Cure:

Illness Suppression Amulet3

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.

To counter the effects of this star, it is important that one constantly recite the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA). Secondary cure for this displaying a Wu Lou (also spelled as Wulou) or Holy Gourd and putting it at the center of the house. However, as most of you know since this stars lands of the center and making it a powerful ruling star, my Guru Lama has come up with a special Illness Suppression Amulet and that is he has combined three of the most powerful anti – illness and anti – accident mantras, which he has consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha and included some powerful Dharma Pills.

I shall write about the Dharma Pills in my succeeding post. But basically a Dharma Pill is a special small object that is made of second-class relics of high lamas and is highly consecrated.Please note consecration is better than simply blessing it.

The mantras that are included in this Illness Suppression Amulet are the Medicine Buddha Mantra printed in a blue paper, Namgyalma Mantra and White Umbrella Goddess Mantra printed on a white paper, and Amitayus Mantra printed on a red paper. Aside from wearing this, all houses should have one in the center. I haven’t personally seen this amulet and will provide a photo once the item has arrived.

The center being the center is not affected by any of the stars in the 24 Mountain Stars, however, here you will just see your directional orientation to determine what stars affects you in the 24 Mountain Stars formula.

THE EAST HAS THE #9 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR.

Effects:

Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well.

Feng Shui Cure:

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Photo Uploaded from Google Images

Last year, I didn’t put any enhancer or cure recommendations because I want people to be more conscious about what they do. However, a reader told me that there are times that we simply, without intending to be bad, create some things that earn us negative karma. For this I highly recommend either the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM or OM HANU PASHA BARA HE YE SOHA both of which are on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. For those who don’t have the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, you can simply chant the mantras mentioned above or wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet or Vajrapani Ruel.

24 Mountain Stars:

As mentioned the East is flanked on both sides by Big Auspicious stars and so those people whose house is facing the East, or whose office are in the East are sure to benefit from this star. Together with the #9 Flying Star, you will surely soar high, because this can make the Multiplying and Future Star quite turn into a really positive star.

The SOUTHEAST HAS THE #1 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VICTORY STAR.

Effects:

This star brings luck to your endeavors. It helps ensure your success. This year the White Victory Star also ensures that people whose main door faces the east will have wondrous victory luck.

Feng Shui Enhancers:

Put in your bedroom or carry or wear one of the following images – Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, Kuan Kong, or Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Victory Banner

Victory Banner also called as The Banner of Victory

24 Mountain Stars:

The Southeast has one of the Small Auspicious Star, and so if your house or office has an entrance or is fronting the Southeast, and if your bedroom or office room is in the Southeast you should benefit from this star. Combined with the #1 Flying Star this sector becomes even luckier!

 

THE SOUTH HAS THE #6 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS HEAVEN’ BLESSING AND MENTOR STAR BUT IT ALSO HOUSES THE THREE KILLINGS.

Effects:

This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room is in the NE side of the house or building. Meaning, if you continuously do more good the more blessed you’re going to be. This also means that if you’re Chinese Animal Zodiac is not so good, you will have help from Heaven (Buddha, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you achieve your goal.

Feng Shui Enhancers:

In your room or office put some crystal ball or 6 White Jade tied with a red string. People who are staying in this sector and people born in the year of the Horse will do well if they invite an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal by wearing their image as a pendant. I personally suggest one of the following: Kuan Kong, Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin, Maitreya Buddha aka Happy Fat Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Yellow Dzambhala, Green Tara.

kuan yin 5

Kuan Yin

However, this star is of a metal element, and so it slight weakens being that it is on the South side, which is ruled by the fire element. So the cures that you can put should be made of metal.

24 Mountains:

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the SOUTH, Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 – Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds of misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness.

So a good way of dealing with the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal in the West section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the West section of their house, office, building, or room must wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals.

The Three Celestial Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin or Chi Lin) and Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

But you also have another Yin Chia Xing here. The characteristics of the Yin Chia Xing here is something that may affect your safety. To deal with this particular Yin Chia Xing, I suggest that you put or wear an image of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, especially if your house or office faces South and if your bedroom or office is in this sector.

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE #8 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE WEALTH STAR BUT IT ALSO HAS THE TAI SUEY GOD OF THE YEAR.

Effects:

This star is a very good star. It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also for over – all abundance.

Feng Shui Enhancers:

Faux gold Coins or Bars or Ingots should be place on this sector. Wear an image of a Wealth Deity like the Maitreya Buddha, Kuan Kong, or Sun Wukong.

Happy Fat Buddha12

Happy Fat Buddha (Maitreya Buddha)

24 Mountain Stars:

However, the SouthWest has the Yin Chia Xing, Yearly Killing, and the Tai Suey (also spelled as Tai Sui). The first two are bad stars and the Tai Suey is the God of the year.

If your bedroom or office is in the SouthWest of the building or house, I suggest that you put a Surangama Mantra Amulet or a Prayer Wheel. And if the entrance of your house or office is in the Southwest or if the entrance is in the Southwest, I strongly suggest that you carry or wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet and a Prayer Wheel.

Prayer wheel solar

A solar prayer wheel is a prayer wheel that spins on its own with the use of solar energy.

Again if your bedroom or office is in the Southwest you should wear a Kalachakra Pendant (made of gold or clear quartz or jade). If your house or office faces or the entrance is in the Southwest put the symbol of the Kalachakra outside your house or office.

However, it should be noted that this year, the Tai Suey God is still in the Southwest. It has to be noted that Tai Suey is not part of the Flying Star or 24 Mountain Star but we need to always take this into consideration because offending the Tai Suey will create a lot of bad luck.

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year 2016, Tai Sui of the year is General Guan Zhong (管仲). However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

Taoist Gods are like humans with supernatural powers. They have magical and godly powers but they may also have human temperament and they also have characters and personalities. Meaning, they can get angry with our acts, they can be disturbed and get angry with us and thus render a punishment to us, or maybe the simple act of them getting irritated with us might create some misfortune. However, they can also be appease and happy with us and render us some good blessings, or again, the simple act of the Tai Suey getting happy with us will create some good fortune.

To help ensure that Tai Suey is happy with us always carry an image of the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu. This celestial animal will help appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey. Another image that can help manage the Tai Suey God is to carry, display or wear an image of the Wind Horse or Lung Ta. People born in the year of the Monkey and Ox and Tiger are directly affected by the Tai Suey God (also spelled as Tai Sui, Tai Sue) should have either the Piyao or Lung – Ta. Also, if your door faces SouthWest, or if your bedroom and office is in the SouthWest you should also put the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta or Windhorse. People who are occupying the SouthWest also should wear or carry the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta. Also one of the best protections for the Tai Suey is an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun, thus having her image is also highly advisable.

THE WEST HAS THE #4 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ROMANCE AND SCHOLASTIC STAR.

Effects:

Romance luck is heightened if your room is on this side of the house. For single people, you might have the possibility of finding love. For partnered people, you might find your love getting more ‘fragrant’. However, for married couple the effect might be two fold. First, you might find yourself loving each other more deeply, but there might also be the possibility of a third party getting involved. It is also called Scholastic Star because it also has a good effect on the scholastic pursuits of a person. Meaning, students may become more studious, and professionals might find that it’s easier to understand documents.

Feng Shui Enhancer:

Mandarin Ducks made of Rose Quartz

For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed or ask your partner to wear a gold image of Kuan Kong. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only.

24 Mountain Stars:

As mentioned the West is flanked on both sides by Big Auspicious stars and so those people whose house is facing the West, or whose office are in the West are sure to benefit from this star.

THE NORTHWEST HAS THE #3 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ARGUMENTATIVE STAR.

Effects:

The Flying Star #3 also known, as the Argumentative Star is a star that causes relationship problem, numerous bickering, litigation problems, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. If not controlled and suppressed, this star will bring about tremendous with your family and officemates or business partners. It can also cause a lot of unnecessary legal issues. This star has to be suppressed.

It also has to be noted for this year, all patriarchs and leaders are affected by this star, especially those who leads their businesses.

Feng Shui Cure:

Kuan Yin gold Pendant with Sutra

Normally the best cures for this star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball (but for this year, this is not recommended because of the strong fire element of the chart) or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help. These are what I normally recommend. But lately I noticed that another great cure for this are the Surangama Mantra Amulet and Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant.

Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant1

Back side of my Kuan Yin pendant. You can see though it’s small the The The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra is written behind it.

 

24 Mountain Stars:

With the #3 Flying Star flying into this sector, you would think that it is going to be a terribly bad year for this sector. However, the 24 Mountain Star compensated it by bringing in 3 Auspicious Stars. So while one has to be careful about getting into fights and argument, people whose offices or bedroom or whose entrance faces or is in this sector should also receive a lot of blessings.

THE NORTH HAS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VIOLENT STAR.

Effects:

The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. Next to the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang, this is one of the most dreaded stars. This year people born in the sign of the Ox are affected by this star and by the dreaded #5 Flying Star also known as Five Yellow Star. But more on that on the succeeding post. The only good news is that this year the #7 Flying Star (Violent Star) is not a very strong star.

Feng Shui Cure:

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.

Since this is one most the more serious star that we have to take care of, it’s important that people whose houses are facing North or simply staying in the North side of their house should have one of the following: Vajrapani Ruel, Sun Wukong, Kalachakra.

24 Mountains:

The North has the Yin House and is also facing the 3 Killings. It is easy to deal with the Three Killings, all you have to do is just confront it or carry the image of the Three Celestial Guardians.

However, the Yin Chia Xing is something else and the characteristic of the Yin Chia Xing here is different from the other Yin Chia Xing mentioned above. If your house or office is facing North, it is quite important to put a Surangama Mantra Amulet of the entrance of your door. If your room (bedroom, office) is on the North side of the property it is advisable that you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet or a Prayer Wheel. You can also put a Prayer Wheel or Surangama Mantra Amulet on your room.

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE VERY DREADED #5 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE 5 – YELLOW STAR OR WU WANG.

Feng Shui practitioners all know that this is the most dreadful star amongst all the 4 bad flying stars. In fact, sometimes it doesn’t matter whether you’re lucky base on your Bazi chart, if you are afflicted with this you are going to face a very challenging year. This year, the Wu Wang is ever more dreadful because it lands on the NorthEast sector, which is a sector ruled by the earth element, thus making this Five Yellow Star even more powerful. So the effects may be doubled. If you stay (office, room) in this sector or if your house faces this sector or if you are born in the year of the Ox or Tiger, it’s IMPERATIVE that you deal with this star. If you are on a budget and there is only one thing that you can deal with this year, deal with this. I cannot stress enough the importance of dealing with this.

Effects:

The 5 – Yellow Star is the worst of all negative stars! It’s the most dreaded star. It is said to bring 5 different kinds of misfortunes!

And as mentioned this year the Wu Wang is much stronger.

Feng Shui Cure:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I asked my Feng Shui teacher and a Taoist priest as to what is the alternative cure for the Wu Wang. While the Kalachakra may be considered as a secondary cure. To this day, it is still the Five Element pagoda that can cure the effects of the Wu Wang. It has to be made of metal. For pendants, it has to be gold.

AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. If that is not possible, you can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5 – Element Pagoda), or the Kalachakra made of gold. But I only recommended this as a secondary option. There is going to be a slight difference on how you use the Five Element Pagoda. First, make sure you are using a new one, take away the old ones and get a new one. Make sure also that it is something that can be opened (please see image below). Inside the top opening, instead of putting a soil, put a crystal. In that case you will still have use an earth element but with a very positive chi. Then at the bottom opening, you have to put three to five powerful amulets or mantras or sutras. I strongly recommend the following:

Please note that you should have at least have 2 of the first three suggestions.

image2

Make sure that the Five Element Pagoda that you get is something that can be opened. At the bottom of the pagoda put 3 – 5 of the mentioned amulets, sutras.

image1

Open the top. Normally one puts soil in it as shown in the picture. But for this year one has to put a crystal.

For people who stays in this section of the house or building and if you can’t move out of this sector, it is very important that you wear either the Kalachakra (gold, jade or clear quartz) or the Five Element Pagoda (strictly in gold) and also carry with you at least 3 of the mentions amulets that has to be placed inside the Five Element Pagoda. Furthermore, people born in the year of the Tiger should also ensure that they wear either the Five Element Pagoda (gold) or the Kalachakra (gold, crystal quartz, jade) and carry the above-mentioned amulets. For people born in the year of the Ox you should wear both the Five Element Pagoda and Kalachakra pendants in gold. The logic of this advice will be explained on the forecast for the Ox.

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. When worn it has to be in gold or clear quartz or jade.

Admittedly, the 5 – Element Pagoda and the Kalachakra pendants can be hard to find, especially you need to wear them in gold. For the Kalachakra pendant you can search the web to look for one, there are some online stores that sell them in gold or clear quartz or jade. It might be a little pricey though. For the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant, unfortunately, I have been searching the web where to get this but I can only find two sources. One is thru Lillian Too’s online store.

The other one is through a private seller. I personally prefer the one sold by Lillian Too because the craftsmanship is better even if the private seller’s is a bit more affordable.

I also asked my Feng Shui teacher about other alternatives for the cure against the Wu Wang, and as of now it remains to be the 5 – Element Pagoda or (secondary) the Kalachakra and nothing else.

Even in the 24 Mountain Stars formula has really nothing good to offer, so it is quite important if your house or office building faces or the entrance faces this sector, you have to have the Five Element Pagoda and Kalachakra. The need for the Kalachakra, which is one of the most powerful symbols of protection in Buddhism, is to further strengthen the protection that we will be getting from the other cures. If your bedroom or office room is in this sector, again, I suggest you move out. If you can’t then it will be good if you can wear a 5 – Element Pagoda made of gold (it has to be gold, because you need the energy of the metal element and strong yang energy of gold for this), at the same time you have to carry some of the amulets mentioned above. I know I’m being repetitive but I cannot stress this enough.

It is worth noting again that for this year the Five – Element Pagoda should include some powerful mantra or sutra amulets and instead of soil put some crystals. For those who will need to wear the Five – Element Pagoda pendant it has to be in gold and carry 3 of the mentioned powerful mantra or sutra amulets above.

It is also important to get these cures early not only because they may be quite difficult to find but also because the energies of 2016 can be felt as early as January of the western calendar.

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.

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalanced Year Filled with A Number of Good Stars (Part 1)

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.

2016 bazi chart 2

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. 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.

Use The Power of Piyao To Boost Your Energy of Your 9 – Eye DZI with Citrine Bracelet!

Today, allow me to share with you a short post on how you can boost the wealth luck and financial luck enhancing capability of you 9 – eye DZI with citrine bracelets.

One simple way of doing this is to add a Piyao. Very simple but just like that and voila it will work wonders! It will be like adding a strong and powerful engine to it that can suck up a lot of wealth and financial luck to bring in a lot of money.

How do I know this?citrine dzi piyao

A few months ago a reader wanted to get a Vajrapani Ruel to help boost his financial luck. In the process, she clarified that she is already wearing a Citrine Bracelet with the Nine – Eye DZI. Instinct told me to just let her add a Piyao (also called Pixiu or Pixie or spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie) because this celestial animal, which is a powerful Tai Suey (Tai Sui) Amulet, is also a powerful being to enhance wealth luck. Anyway, she heeded my advice and she said she did experience a big surge with her wealth luck!

Myth Buster 40: A Baby with More Than One Hair Crown is Going To Be A Mischievous and Disobedient Child.

Published December 17, 2015 by jptan2012

hair crownThere is a popular belief amongst Chinese, which was inherited by a lot of Filipinos, that a baby born with more than one hair crown is going to be a mischievous and disobedient child.

Is there truth to this?

Of course the direct answer is no. But how did this belief come about?

I can only surmise that the belief started a long time ago because of two possible reasons. One is that this is not so common that older people at that time who believes in a lot of superstition wants to make sure that the parents properly observes the child. However, because they are unable to give a valid reason for their concern they just decided to scare of the parents by saying that the child is going to be mischievous and disobedient, ergo, they are going to be a problem child.

Nevertheless, some Taoist priest believes that when a child has more than one hair crown that means that two or more souls depending on the number of the hair crown has entered into the person’s body when he was conceived. Meaning the child is a reincarnation of more than just one soul, but it doesn’t mean than he has more than one soul, it only means that for some reason two or more souls has merged into one consciousness and inhabited one body to become the person that he is now. This also means that his character might be harder to predict, and it might be harder to manage the person, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the child is mischievous and disobedient.

Again, I would like to clarify that this doesn’t mean that the child is possessed by different souls. It only means that their more than one soul merged together and reincarnated as one.

Lastly, I don’t know whether this is a plausible reasoning as to why some people has more than one hair crown and the Taoist priests are divided on this matter.

Works in Mysterious Ways…

Published December 15, 2015 by jptan2012

The past few weeks, maybe months, I am actively in touch with the daughter of a reader. TS is the daughter of a reader who got a Vajrapani Ruel. She consulted me on a matter that I’m still not a liberty to discuss here. However, I would like to share that TS’s case is unique in such a way that we are seemingly battling another force that may be using not just Feng Shui but Taoist rituals that may be from the ‘yin’ force to give her problems or are causing her problems.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

Anyway, I’m so involved with TS’s case that my Feng Shui teacher has warned me not to get personally involved. But sometimes I think how can I not when I want too much to see that good and right should win out in the end. And yes, it seems to me that this become a battle of some sort. In fact, my Feng Shui teacher and his Taoist Priest friend said that this elderly woman in TS’s life who is causing her so much problem has an evil heart. Now, that is something that I seldom here them say. Maybe, this was the first time I heard them say it. They said, some people do wrong things or bad things even if they have a good heart only because they are confused and at a lost. However, this elderly woman in TS’s life do bad things simply because she has an evil heart.

 

But I’m getting off track here. Being involved in TS’s case has humbly reminded me that sometimes amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, or even Prayer Wheels and even our direct requests to the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, etc. may work or turn out in a way we don’t expect. It doesn’t mean though they are not working for us, but it means it is working for us in ways that fate or destiny knows is better for us. I have always believed this but as I said getting involved in TS’s case simply reminded me that sometimes these things work in mysterious way.

For example, one of the very first posts I have written is about how an amulet made my mother sick, but in the end that sickness prevented her from getting involved in what could have been a fatal accident.

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.

Allow me to share also the story of WT. WT is a housewife who got the Vajrapani Ruel simply because she wants her life to be better, especially for her kids. However, 2 weeks after getting the Vajrapani Ruel, she found out that her husband was cheating on her and he has a mistress for 4 years! They eventually separated after she discovered the fact. She was so angry and sad that she blamed the Vajrapani Ruel to be the cause of her problems. However, her friend who happens to be my reader and who is the one who convinced her that she get the Vajrapani Ruel, told her the folly of her argument. She pointed out to WT that her husband had been cheating for 4 years as he has admitted, and that having the Vajrapani Ruel made her discover it. But she can’t help but feel that the Vajrapani Ruel didn’t work the way it should have worked.

Approximately 4 months after she and her husband broke up; her husband came to their house crying. To make the long story short, he said that he realized his mistake, and having a mistress was just part of the fact that he has temporarily forgotten how precious his wife is and how much they love each other. He admitted that he became complacent for whatever they had.

WT accepted her husband back. And she now realized the miracle that she has to go through was a little bitter because they have to realize their mistakes. They have to realize how much they love each other. Not knowing about the mistress doesn’t mean that there’s no problem, but finding out about it ensured that their love is real.

I guess an amulet really works in mysterious ways….

Myth Buster 39: The Number Four Brings Death!

Published December 14, 2015 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to talk about a very popular Chinese belief that the number four (4) causes death.

A lot of Chinese believes that the number 4 brings death; this belief is so strong that a lot of buildings don’t have the 4th floor. So from 3rd floor it skips to 5th floor, totally taking out the fourth floor. Likewise, they won’t have the fourteenth (14th) floor, twenty-fourth (24th) floor and so on.

Is there truth to this? Well, unlike with other Myth Busters that I have written, the answer to this is quite not straight forward because strictly speaking there is no truth to this, but sometimes this can be true. Before you get confuse, please allow me to explain.

fourth floor

Don’t be surprised not to see the 4th floor botton in an elevator. Because a lot of Chinese – owned building purposely take out the 4th floor and skips to 5th floor for fear that havng a 4th floor brings death to the occupant of that particular floor.

If you look at the Feng Shui flying star, the number four (#4) flying star is the romance and literary star. Meaning it is the star that brings romance luck and literary luck or education luck. So strictly speaking base on the flying star formula of Feng Shui there is no truth to the belief that number 4 brings death.

In Buddhism and Taoism, there is real significance of the number 4. The only closest thing that I can think of that signifies the number four is the Four Great Bodhisattvas of Chinese Buddhism, which are Kuan Yin Bodhisattva also known as Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva or Chenrezig Bodhisattva, Earth Store Bodhisattva also known Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Samantabhadra Bodhisattva, and Manjushri Bodhisattva. Obviously, they have nothing to do with bringing bad luck or death.

So where this did belief comes from? And why can’t I categorically say that there is no truth to this belief?

I have written, more than once, the story about Mao Zedong’s fake Feng Shui experts. They are the ones who propagated the belief that the North is always the worst part of the house. I have written about this in the following posts:

It is also at the same time that the belief that the number 4 in an address or a building (as one of the floors) is bad luck. Why? As mentioned before, Mao Zedong and those that followed didn’t want the people to practice Feng Shui for fear that it might be used to the disadvantage of those in the government. So what they did is that they prohibited all Feng Shui masters to practice Feng Shui. Several of them were in captured and brought to labor camps for ‘reeducation’. And because the public can’t be stopped from wanting to practice Feng Shui, the Chinese government released their own fake Feng Shui masters and that brought out a lot of simplistic Feng Shui principles that are totally baseless. One of which is that the North being the worst side, and number 4 or having a 4th floor is really bad because four in Chinese Mandarin and Han Chinese, which is the dominant ethnic group, sounds like or sounds very similar to the word death.

But does this carry some truth? Direct answer is no. Nevertheless, this belief became so ingrained in people’s mind that sometimes by sheer of strong belief and power of the believing mind, death does occur.

So how does one counteract this? Simple, simple know that there is no truth to this.
