Take Extra Precaution this Hungry Ghost Month of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey – Part 2!

Published Agosto 3, 2016 by jptan2012

Today is the start of the Hungry Ghost Month, and I’m sure most of you are aware that this is not a good thing. Hungry Ghost Month, which is the 7th month of the lunar calendar is considered as the worst month of the year. During this time, trading is down, and people avoid going on long trips and undergoing medical procedures. Chinese businessmen also avoid making big changes or making big business decisions during this month of the Hungry Ghost. I have written a lot about the Hungry Ghost Month and it would be good if you read about it if you want to understand more about it.

As mentioned, today is the first day of the ghost month this 2016. It’s peak is on the August 17, so from August 16 to 18 we all need to be careful. But while the hungry ghost month of 2016, unlike in 2014, is not really particularly strong, because of the configurations of the Flying Star the ghost month this year becomes particularly dreaded.

The other day I talked about the first part of what in store and what we should do this Hungry Ghost Month of 2016. As I said, while the Hungry Ghost Month this year is not particularly stronger, unlike that of the year 2014, we should still be a little wary because this year’s ruling star is the black star #2, which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only Illness but also Accidents.

However, there is more to it. This year’s Hungry Ghost Month also coincides with the fact that the monthly flying star brings to the center, thus making it the ruling star of the month, the most dreaded star of the Flying Star formula which is the #5 Flying Star or the Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star.

The Wu Wang is the most dreaded and is considered as the most dangerous of all stars. It causes different kinds of bad luck like financial problems, family and relationship problems, illness and accidents and a lot more. And as mentioned, this month it lands on the center, making it together with the Illness Star as the ruling star of the month. So aside from the Ox and Tiger, for this month all of us is affected by the effects of this star. This is really bad, and mind you, I don’t really want to sound like I’m a doomsayer but two black stars in the center and coupled with the Hungry Ghost Month, you need not be a Feng Shui expert to know that this is really bad. I’m sure all of you who are familiar with basic Feng Shui knows this to be a dreaded fact.

We all need to be very careful!! We already need to be careful during the Hungry Ghost Month, but coupled with these stars, we really need to be armed with some of the most powerful protection amulets or symbols.

The other day I wrote about the different cures for the Hungry Ghost Month. However, friends and other readers has been bugging as to what should they really wear this month.

If you wish to know more about the cures or amulets mentioned on this article like the Chung Kwei, Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, and Illness Suppression Amulet, please see the links below and read about them by clicking on the particular article you want to read.

One of the most effective cure for the Ghost Month is still the image of Chung Kwei. Please read my post about him by clicking here to understand more about Chung Kwei. The two other powerful cures for the Ghost Month are the Vajrapani Ruel and Surangama Mantra Amulet. However, for people born under the year of the Ox or Tiger it is very important to have both the Chung Kwei and the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet. Why? This is because Ox and Tiger born people are already predisposed to the negative energies of the year. With the annual Wu Wang residing in the Northeast, and annual Illness Star being the years ruling star, coupled with the monthly Wu Wang being the monthly ruling star and the Hungry Ghost Month joining forces then it is a critical month for all of us but especially for people born under the sign of Ox and Tiger.

It is also very important to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet and the Five Element Pagoda gold pendant. For further protection wearing a Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade is also very important.

People born under the year of the rat, dog, pig, horse and dragon, should make sure that they have either the Chung Kwei or the Surangama Mantra Amulet with the Five Element Pagoda gold pendant or Kalachakra gold pendant. This is because they are the ones more susceptible to the negative energies of the month.

Clarifications on the Post About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 20, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that the information shared on this blog the other day about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde entitled – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – & – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – can be a little overwhelming for a lot of you. Almost immediately I was bombarded by literally hundreds of emails, which I really haven’t read. On top of that, there were also an overwhelming number of sms that was sent to me, not to mention several phone calls.

I thought it is only appropriate to clarify something for everybody’s better understanding of the topic.

First, Mercury Retrograde is as mentioned a Western Astrology concept, I’m not an expert and I don’t have mastery of the said topic, however, I know it to be true because:

  1. I know that Western Astrology to be true. Before I dwelt on Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, Western Astrology was my first interest. My personal bias is that Chinese Astrology is more accurate but it doesn’t change the fact that Western Astrology has some basis.
  2. Mercury Retrograde is a concept that I have read before. In fact, several years back. There are also some famous people who have claimed that they experienced Mercury Retrograde and that it has affected their relationship and work. Some of these people are Ronald Reagan, Cameron Mackintosh, Shirley Maclaine, etc.
  3. The few times I got to meet some reputable Astrologer, this is something that we’ve discussed. And they are all in agreement that this is true.
  4. Particularly this year, when June set in a lot of people have been complaining to me about their relationship problems and communication problems, which prompted me to do more research about this topic.
  5. I believe that it is stronger this year because of several factors that may affect it to become stronger. This is just theory and I didn’t included in the first two article because it is quite difficult for me to substantiate this, but the stronger Hungry Ghost Month this year might be making Mercury Retrograde stronger also.

Second, the stronger Hungry Ghost Month phenomenon is not something new. Although rare it has been known to happen. And it is different from what happened last year, because last year we had a triple whammy, but this year it is simply stronger Hungry Ghost Month that we have to deal with it, and because it is stronger, it also extends itself. As mentioned, I’ve consulted other Feng Shui experts, particularly my teachers; most of them agree that this is indeed the case. However, I would like to clarify that there is one particular Feng Shui expert that said that they (group that she works with) are not sure whether this is an interpretation concern. Meaning, they saw it but they seem to think that this is still subject to further discussion. They are drawing their unclear stand from the ‘Double Negative Theory’; this theory states that in some aspects of Feng Shui a double negative may be a positive sign.

Third, regarding the cures for the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde, I would like to reiterate that something is still way better than nothing at all.prayer

Lastly, we should not under estimate the power of a prayer. In fact, if you look at the suggested cure, a lot of it is drawing power or protection from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and sutras (Buddhist holy texts that are considered prayer books) and mantras, which is a form of praying. On top of this, I personally believe is also going to create some form of protection. Do good deeds, help people, help people you know, but more than that help people that you don’t know. Do something that is beyond what is JUST COMFORTABLE. The positive energy created by a very good deed is a very powerful protection, and remember a good deed is not measure by how many people you help or by how much you spent. A good deed is measured by sincerity, the amount of compassion you have, and how much of you was shared.

Protect Yourself from the Ill Effects of the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 18, 2014 by jptan2012

In my previous post – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE, I talked about how the combined effect of the annual and monthly flying stars and of the annual and monthly Bazi or Paht Chee are making this year’s Hungry Ghost Month so much stronger that its effects will be felt 15 days before the first day of the Hungry Ghost month which is on July 27, 2014 up to 15 days after its supposed last day which is August 24, 2014. This phenomenon is made worse with the last Mercury Retrograde periods of the year sandwiching this year’s Hungry Ghost month, leaving us with about 5 challenging months in succession.

At the start of the year, a lot of Feng Shui writers and consultants talked about how the first part of the year will show an abundance of luck for most people, and how towards the end of the year it will get depleted. This was obvious on the year’s Paht Chee chart; but nowhere was a definitive explanation of the cause discussed. It is actually only by accident that I came across a possible explanation. I believe the effects of both Mercury Retrograde and the particularly strong Hungry Ghost Month of the year occurring in succession explains why the energy of the year gets depleted towards the end of the year.

As mentioned in my previous blog post, as I wanted to validate my reading of the year’s annual and monthly flying stars and Paht Chee charts especially in relation to the year’s Hungry Ghost Month, I decided to call first my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, and my Guru Lama in Singapore. Both of them confirmed the said phenomenon. After writing the previous blog post, and just before writing this one, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher from Beijing, China, and he also confirmed the said phenomenon. Lastly, I was also able to discuss the matter with other Feng Shui consultants, who likewise acknowledged the phenomenon. Certain experts, however, are not sure whether they will be discussing it through any of their avenues because of two reasons: (1) they are not sure whether the effects are in fact going to be really bad (this goes into interpretations of the resulting calculations) and (2) if in fact the effects will be very bad, they are not sure whether remedies exist to successfully counter the effects.

In the course of writing this entry, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher. This particular Feng Shui teacher practices Transcendental Feng Shui, which is also known as Spiritual or Third Dimension Feng Shui. Like the other Feng Shui experts that I consulted, he acknowledges the said phenomenon and like my Guru Lama he believes that we can do something about it.

Before I go into discussing how one can protect oneself from this phenomenon, let me explain that the recommendations below are an aggregation of the different recommendations that I gathered from my Guru Lama, Feng Shui teachers, and a few of my own recommendations based on my own experience. Also, it would be of course best if you follow all the recommendations; and, needless to state, following some is better than following none of them. I would also like to point out that it was a reader who since then has become a good friend, DU, who pointed out this direction of how to remedy this phenomenon.

Always have with you the following:

  1. Kuan Yin pendant, preferably with a sutra.
    This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

    Back image of the Kuan Yin pendant. This is the reason why I love these pendants is because they have very nicely crafted image of Kuan Yin pouring healing and auspicious from her magical vase, and at the back it has the Heart Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

    Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

  2. Chong Kwei (also spelled as Chung Kwei) or Mahakala (a wrathful image of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin) pendant. To be honest I’ve been looking for a Mahakala pendant and I’m unable to find one. For this year, according to my Guru Lama, Mahakala is preferred but no one can deny the efficacy of a Chong Kwei pendant during the Hungry Ghost month. Please take into consideration that he may be partial to Mahakala because he is a Buddhist Lama and Chong Kwei is of a Taoist lineage. Your Chong Kwei should be made of a black stone or gold.

    This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop.  Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that's made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

  3. Kalachakra pendant, preferably made of gold or jade or clear quartz.
  4. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva pendant.

    From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha.  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you're from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore.

  5. Wear or carry a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.
  6. Medicine Buddha pendant or simply carry a Medicine Buddha sutra.
  7. Always carry a Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet with you at all times.

    I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

At home and in the office you should have the following:

  1. Figurine of Kuan Yin.
  2. Figurine of Mahakala or Chong Kwei.

    This is an image of a Mahakala, the wrathful form of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin. Wrathful form doesn't mean that they are really angry, it means that they are largely use for protection.  This photo was uploaded from Google images.

  3. Figurine of Medicine Buddha or Kuan Kong. These two are optional.
  4. Figurine of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva. It may be pretty difficult to get a figurine of Ksitgarbha Bodhisattva. What you can do instead is print his image, laminate it and put it on your altar. If you don’t have an altar, put them where the other images are.

    In looking for an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva either as a pendant or a figurine for your home, you will come across with two versions, the one with the 'Amitabha' hat and the one where He is not wearing any hat and shows his bald head. I prefer the one with the hat, because the one where He is bald is usually associated with the spirits of the dead and connotes that he hasn't attain His Buddhahood.

  5. Put Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet on all the doors and windows of your house that are facing the perimeter of your house (living quarters). If you find it difficult to find these, then the second best option would be to use Kalachakra stickers.
  6. Put a small bowl of rock salt in all the rooms of your house.
  7. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: FIX ALL THE FENG SHUI ERRORS OF YOUR HOUSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE YIN EFFECTS OF ALL THESE FENG SHUI ERRORS ARE MULTIPLIED.
  8. Play mantras in all the rooms if possible.

 

Do the following ‘rituals’:

  1. From July 12, 2014 to Sept. 8, 2014, chant, DAILY, 10 full malas of OM MANI PADME HUM, 10 full malas of the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA, and 100 full malas of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s mantra. He has several and you can choose which of the following are you more comfortable with:
    1. OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA
    2. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
    3. NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA
    4. NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA
  2. Recite both the Wish Fulfilling and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.
  3. Do the usual rituals for the Hungry Ghost Month that I’ve written about in the past.
  4. Try to make offerings at the temple or church or give to charity as often as you can.
  5. In reciting the mantra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, it will be better if you gaze upon his image.
  6. Light some incense and read the following sutras as often as you can – MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA, which is known as THE SUTRA OF PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. The sutra of the Medicine Buddha is in a blog post that I wrote about Him. Please see link below. If you want a downloadable PDF file of the Sutra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, please click Earth Store Bodhisattva and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA. The two versions are basically the same but slightly differ in the way it was translated. One of the difference is that in one of them Shakyamuni Buddha is simply called Buddha, which is is the more common term in addressing Shakyamuni Buddha is most of the Sutra translations. This is because it is widely accepted that all sutras that we have now are from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. A sutra is basically a prayer and word of Buddha written in a story or conversation format.
  7. Avoid the usual things that one should avoid during the Hungry Ghost Month.

For the Mercury Retrograde periods (June 7- July 1; October 4 – 25), wear an image of Kuan Kong or Kalachakra, and if possible, wear or carry with you a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.

Optional for July 12 to Sept. 8 is also to wear the script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.

There are a lot of things mentioned on this post that for some might be hard to understand. For example what really is Hungry Ghost Month, which I didn’t discuss in detail in these 2 posts about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month, or about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras, etc. I humbly suggest for you to read some of my previous posts to make you understand things that were discussed here better, or why were such items recommended as a cure.

What Everyone Needs to Know About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 18, 2014 by jptan2012

This is perhaps the most important article that I’ll post on this blog for this year and I thank DU for helping me out with this article. Indeed this is the first time I’ve consulted another Feng Shui enthusiast before posting an article.

Lately, I have been receiving a lot of calls, text messages, and emails from people going through a lot of ‘turmoil’ in their life. A lot of them have something to do with relationships, both personal and professional. Also, a number of these people seem to be going through some form of a low life chi: they have started feeling down, feeling low, battling an inner turmoil, and/or getting depressed! Noticeably, a lot of the concerns have something to do with communications.

I believe all the above things I mentioned above are caused by Mercury Retrograde. I’m familiar with the concept of Mercury Retrograde, although it’s a concept of Western Astrology, rather than Feng Shui or Chinese Astrology. I know that whenever Mercury Retrograde occurs, a lot of negative things happen. As I said, I’m only familiar with it but I’m not an expert and do not have mastery of the said topic.

However, based on the site About Astrology, Mercury Retrograde happens 3 to 4 times a year. It is called Mercury Retrograde because the planet Mercury slows down its movement and gives off the illusion that it has stopped moving or has moved backward thus the term “RETROGRADE”.

From what I gather, although there a lot of “negative things” that may happen, Mercury Retrograde is not all bad.

If you wish to understand the concept of Mercury Retrograde better, you can visit the site http://www.astrology.about.com and read for yourself what Mercury Retrograde is all about. For convenience, however, allow me to provide some excerpts from the article written by Molly Hall.

Mercury Madness?:

Mercury is the messenger, and in this time, the delivery is warped or the message gets lost en route. Some people find that their computers go on the fritz or phone lines go down. If you’re at all jittery about it, go ahead and back up your important files.

There can be delays, so give yourself plenty of time to get places. What happens in those down times? Mercury retro is known to be a time of ‘fated’ events — who will you meet? What will be revealed?

A Time-Out:

Mercury retrograde gives us time to catch up with ourselves, and reflect. Something from the past returns in a different form. People, ideas or buried insights that are keys to moving forward, float to the surface. Often it’s felt as a slowed down, contemplative time, and depending on the sign, a chance to go over old ground again, to claim what you missed the first time.

Err on Side of Caution:

There’s a long-held belief that it’s best to avoid making set plans during the Mercury Retrograde. This means holding off on signing contracts, and forming partnerships and alliances. What gets put in writing at this time may turn out to need serious revising after Mercury goes direct. But since tying up loose ends is the domain of retrograde, this type of finalization might fly.

Can you repeat that?:

In our relationships, sometimes we gloss over things that pushed buttons at the time, but which we let slide. What seemed not worth the trouble may reveal itself as a major issue in need of our attention. The Mercury retrograde is a time for review, when the underlying patterns come to light.

Back to the Drawing Board:

Some dreams and goals get lost in the hectic rushing around of daily life. The Mercury Retrograde period can be a rich time of reflection on those longings. This makes it a time for the soul to ponder its destiny. You might look over old journals, review your creative work, muse on serendipities of the past that have pointed you toward your spirit’s calling. It can make the retrograde period a time of solidifying a sense of your personal story and where you’re headed.

What does it mean in each different sign?:

The Mercury retrograde is shaped by the sign through which it is cast. For example, a Mercury retrograde in Cancer turns the mind toward things like family, home and the invisible emotional bonds that connect us. On the other hand, a Mercury retrograde in Aquarius gives it a different spin, with a review of group dynamics, the larger human community, all from a detached perspective.

Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde:

A major cause of stress at Mercury retrograde is frustration from mishaps, things breaking down, computers going black. But if we know it’s cycle, this makes it feel less terminal. If things go pear-shaped, see what’s there to see. Take a break from the usual routine.

Just observe and see what happens, and be open to the past returning for review. If it’s coming back, there’s likely something more to learn or release from it. This can be a good (and productive) time, in its own way.

 

What is clear from the article is that although it can be a challenging time for us, and a local astrologer told me that Mercury Retrograde will definitely affect 30% to 50% of the world’s population in a negative way, depending on how we act on it it can still be a good time for us.

But why am I writing about Mercury Retrograde? Admittedly, I was bothered since it appears that people are really affected by it considering the rather alarming number of emails, text messages, and calls that I’ve received. This in turn prompted me to do more research about it and study its possible relation to Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, if any.

My research and study about its possible relation to Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology led me to ‘discover’ something else about this year’s Hungry Ghost Month. For regular readers of this blog, chances are you’re familiar with the Hungry Ghost Month because this is a topic that I’ve always written about in the past years. For those who are not familiar with it, please read my posts about them. To put it simply, the Hungry Ghost month, which happens on the 7th lunar month of the year, is a month where the hungry ghosts are released so that they can eat. It is believed to be a very bad and dangerous month and most Chinese will avoid going to hospitals and cemeteries during this month. Most Chinese will also avoid signing contracts, traveling, making major decisions, moving houses, getting medical treatment during the Hungry Ghost Month.

Anyway, what I discovered is that this year’s Hungry Ghost month may unfortunately be a lot worse than is normally the case; and this is saying a lot because the Hungry Ghost month is already bad as it is. Before I discuss more about this discovery, let me just point out certain observations regarding the dates of occurrences of Mercury Retrograde and the Hungry Ghost Month for this year.

The second Mercury Retrograde period started June 7 of this year and it will end on the 1st of July. The third period, and I think the last one for the year, is from October 4 to October 25. This year’s Hungry Ghost Month is from July 27 to August 24. You’ll notice that it has been sandwiched by two Mercury Retrograde periods, leaving at least about a month between the end of the second Mercury Retrograde period and the start of the Hungry Ghost Month and also a month between the end of the Hungry Ghost Month and the beginning of the third Mercury Retrograde period. However, this is where it becomes tricky. As mentioned, it is highly probable that this year’s Hungry Ghost Month is going to be more intense than the normal expected yearly Hungry Ghost month. This means that not only will there be a strong and powerful Hungry Ghost month, but also that its effect will be felt 15 days prior to July 27 and 15 days after August 24! Hence, it would appear that there will be a total of approximately 5 challenging months in succession from the second Mercury Retrograde period until the end of the third Mercury Retrograde period.

Returning to my discovery about this year’s Hungry Ghost Month, it is extremely difficult to write about what causes this phenomenon (of the Month being a particularly intense one) because a lot of it will involve explaining several technical terms about the annual flying stars and the monthly flying stars, as well as their relation to the annual Bazi or Paht Chee, again coupled with the Monthly Bazi or Paht Chee! Needless to say, the resulting calculations got me a little worried. I decided that before I start writing about this and cautioning people about it, I’d get confirmation from my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and my Guru Lama in Singapore.

Both of them confirmed this phenomenon although both claimed that this is rare. In fact, my Guru Lama said that this is only the second time he is encountering this situation and he is 78 years old! From the perspective of those who strictly practice straight Feng Shui, there’s not much one can do about this, but in the practice of the Third Dimension, Transcendence, or Spiritual Feng Shui, there’s something that can be done. This relieved me somewhat since a particularly intense Hungry Ghost Month could multiply the effects of the bad Feng Shui of your house, your bad personal Feng Shui, or any negative chi that is brought about by your karma, Paht Chee, or Feng Shui blunders.

During the Hungry Ghost Month, don’t be surprised if big projects might suddenly go awry. It is highly recommended that you finish 15 days prior to July 27 all critical matters that you have to attend to. Also, it would greatly help if you fix all the Feng Shui errors that you know of in your house. Additionally, all of us must carefully watch our health and be wary about going out in the evening.

I admit that I hesitated to write this post because I don’t want to be scaring people. However, I also wanted people to know about these matters because I believe them to be important. This made me look into possible remedies because without these, there would be not much point to sharing the information. In view of these thoughts, I decided to talk to certain people. This is the first time I consulted several people before posting something. One of them is a reader who bought the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, and has since then become a very good friend. DU, whom I’ve written about, is the person who pointed me to the right direction. My Feng Shui teacher from Hong Kong, who strictly practices straight Feng Shui, felt that there is nothing we can do about this phenomenon. DU refused to believe this and mentioned that mantras should be able to help. This prompted me to call my Guru Lama in Singapore and he did share with me some possible remedies. I consulted people because while the threat of this phenomenon of having an extra strong Hungry Ghost month (sandwiched by 2 Mercury Retrograde periods at that) is I believe a very serious matter, I don’t want to be simply a doomsday prophet.

Again, as I always say, what’s the importance of knowing something if one can’t prevent it from happening or at the very least if one can’t have a remedy against it. While people who are into straight Feng Shui believe that there’s nothing we can do about this, those who practice the Transcendence/Spiritual/Third Dimension of Feng Shui believe that there are some things that we can do to protect us from the ill effects of this phenomenon.

On my next post called PROTECTING OURSELVES FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE, you’ll get to read on how we can prepare for the ill effects of the phenomenon mentioned on this particular post.

I have been receiving a lot of emails asking for the 2014 Feng Shui forecast base on the Chinese Astrology. This year regardless of your Chinese zodiac or animal astrology success will be at hand. Some easier than others, but the common factor is you have to be aggressive. Work in humility but remember a silent worker is not somebody who will be recognized this year, thus complete success is not for them as well.

Love luck is also strong for all animal sign. However, this may not necessarily be a good thing, because this could also mean that for some who are already in a relationship, might find themselves with a third party getting involve. For those who are single, while you might find yourself in a relationship, it may also mean that you may be a third party in a relationship. It can also mean that more people might go obsessed with another person. To enhance the good effects of this energy, one can wear an image of a pair of mandarin ducks, or the double happiness sign. For those who are in a relationship already, it will help to get yourself a Nine – Ring Sword (the sword carried by Kuan Kong), or an image of White Tara. This may be hard to find, so having the seed syllable TAM, which is the seed syllable of the all permutations of Goddess Tara will also help, another thing that may help is for you to get an image of a rooster with fan.

Scholastic luck is also good for most animal signs. This means that in all endeavors, its better if it backed by research or solid data. This coupled with a strong instinct or gut feel are useful tools to ensure financial and career success.

Also a lot of you have been emailing me complaining me about having the need to replace your Feng Shui cure every year. This is why I design the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT because I don’t want to have to replace or worry about what to wear every year. If you want to know more about it please just click here and here.

Let us now go to the individual signs.

 

RAT

This is going to be a busy year for you; you’re lucky to have the Flying Star #9 which is also known as the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star. This would mean that all your good deeds will easily reaped good karma also. However, please remember bad deeds will also reap bad karma. You will also have good opportunities this year, however, you have to be vigilant and grab opportunity by the horn. Unfortunately, you also have the 3 Killings, but there’s no need to worry about this because simply being busy helps manage the Three Killings.

You are also directly across the Tai Suey or the Grand Duke, which is the god of the year. This might create some problem. But no need to worry, simply wearing an image of the Pi Yao (also known or spelled Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu) or the Lung – Ta or Wind Horse will help appease the Tai Suey.

Using the 24 Mountains computation shows that you also have the Natural Disaster star so it is best to be careful especially in the evening.

Recommendations:

To manage the #9 Flying Star: Symbolic script of the Immediate & Light Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM AH HUM or of the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA

To manage the 3 Killings: Three Celestial Guardians or images of 3 Different Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Immortals, or Deities

To manage or appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey: Pi Yao (the 3 Celestial Guardians has the image of the Piyao so it should do already) or the Lung – Ta or Windhorse.

To manage the Natural Disaster Star: Kalachakra Pendant or an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong).

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

OX

People born under the sign of the Ox are quite lucky this year. In fact, this is one of the luckiest Chinese Animal Zodiac of the year. I would like to say weirdly lucky, this is because if you look at the flying star that dominates you’re sector at the moment, you’ll see the #7 Flying Star which is the Violent Star. Initially speaking this should mean that this is a bad year for you, however, you’ll have to know that because of the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee combined with #2 Flying Star that goes to the East sector, which is also normally a bad star, creates Ho Tu 2/7 which creates some good luck for you. This means you will have great success luck. However, you have to be careful in going out in the evening and you have to be careful about people stealing your ideas and or backstabbing you.

Wealth luck is generally very good to most Ox born people. But because of the Yearly Killings and the Yin House of the 24 Mountain Stars, you will have to be careful about getting into arguments and also as already mentioned about people backstabbing you and furthermore about theft. Furthermore, while money luck might come easy you have to watch out about how you spend them.

Recommendations:

To enhance success luck wears an image of the Victory Banner or the Lung – Ta or Windhorse.

To enhance wealth luck wears an image of the Gold Ingot or a Three Legged Toad or an image of Maitreya Buddha or an image of Yellow Dzambhala.

To manage getting backstabbed a theft you can wear a Kalachakra Pendant or Kuan Kong with the Nine Ring Sword.

Banner of Victory Pendant

Banner of Victory Pendant

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.

TIGER

Despite of the Double Yearly Conflict and Yin House brought about by the 24 Mountains Star, 2014 Year of the Wood Horse should bring you a lot of money or wealth luck. But like the Ox you should be careful of getting backstabbed and theft. Also do your best to keep a low profile.

While there may be new beneficial relationships for you this year, you need to be careful that these relationships don’t get sour. However, you need to remember to watch out for your health, because you are afflicted with the illness star. On top of it, because of the Double Yearly Conflict and the Yin House, it’s best to avoid going to cemeteries, funerals, and/or hospitals.

Recommendations:

To further enhance your wealth luck you can carry or wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha aka Happy Fat Buddha or Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong or Yellow Dzambhala.

To manage souring a beneficial relationship it’s best to carry either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine Ring Sword or an image of Kuan Kong.

To manage your health wears an image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha or the Holy Gourd.

To manage the Double Yearly Conflict and the Yin House of the 24 Mountains Star wears an image of the Kalachakra.

RABBIT

You have to be very careful about your health. If you can only do one Feng Shui enhancement or cure this year, then you’ll have to focus on your health because you have the illness star. You also have to be careful because the illness star can also bring in some accidents that might lead to long term or major health problems.

But nevertheless, be happy that even if you have the Yearly Conflict of the 24 Mountains Star, you also have the Big Auspiciousness and the General Luck Star. This means as long as you manage your health, you’ll still see yourself achieving the things that you set out to do. On the side, you also have to watch out for getting into arguments.

Recommendations:

To manage the Illness Star or #2 Flying Star you have to wear an image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha. If possible, chant one full male (108 times) a day the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha. It is also highly advisable to put on both sides of your bed a Metal Wulou or Holy Gourd. Also it will be nice if you can donate blood on the 2nd month of the lunar calendar and continuously involve yourself in charitable works.

To enhance the Big Auspiciousness and General Luck Star you can wear an image of Kuan Kong and partner it the Victory Banner or Lung Ta. Kuan Kong will also manage and prevent you from getting into arguments.

DRAGON

Dragon born people are by nature quite impatient and hotheaded, but don’t surprised if it becomes worst this year. The #3 Flying Star also known as the Argumentative Star, this is further strengthen by the Yi Duo of the 24 Mountain Star. So take care of your temper and always try to watch your words. Remember, if something can be amicably settled, then settle because if you go to court, chances are you’d be at the losing end.

While money luck is good, personal success will need a little push, this is because of the combined influence of the Big Auspiciousness Star and the Yin House of the 24 Mountain Star.

Recommendations:

To manage the Argumentative Star and the Yi Duo, it’s best to wear as a pendant an image of Kuan Kong with the Nine Ring Sword. A Ksitigarbha Fireball will also be a powerful tool to fight the combine effect of the #3 Flying Star and the Yi Duo.

Also, to enhance money luck wears an image of either the Maitreya Buddha also known as Happy Fat Buddha or Sun Wukong or Yellow Dzambhala. A White Dzambhala will be very good as well.

Lastly to manage the Yin House, you can either wear an image of Kuan Yin or wear a Kalachakra pendant.

In choosing a Kuan Kong it's important that you look at the face. The 'braver' the face the better. Also, I prefer dark colored stones or gold Kuan Kong, because Kuan Kong is basically a red face god. I veer away from the white jade variety. Photo lifted from Google images.

SNAKE

While wealth luck for you is going to be good, you have to be careful and manage your temper. You might get into a lot of fight. There will also be a number of small obstacles that with perseverance can be managed.

Nevertheless, you need to know that there will be a lot of people who will come along your way to help you succeed. This is due to the Heaven Seal of the 24 Mountain Star.

However, you also need to watch out for your health, so make sure you don’t engage in any dangerous activities but at the same time make sure that you get some rest.

Remember, success should be easy for you if you look pass the possible obstacles. You are also in side conflict with the Grand Duke or Tai Suey so take to mind to appease him by carrying or wearing an image of the Pi Yao and/or Lung – Ta which is also known as the Windhorse.

Recommendations:

To enhance wealth luck you can wear either an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha.

To help manage the small obstacles it will be good to wear an image of Kuan Yin / Avalokitesvara or simply carry or wear a Lung – Ta.

To help manage your possible health problems, carry a Wu Lou or wear an image of the Medicine Buddha.

Yellow Dzambhala

HORSE

Humility is the key to your success this year. Remember that Tai Suey or Grand Duke resides on your sector this year, thus it is very important to always be humble, do good deeds to others and constantly appease him with either the Piyao or the Lung – Ta or Windhorse. You are also facing the 3 Killings and as I mentioned this is something that can be appease with the 3 Celestial Guardians or 3 different images of either a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal.

But do not despair, because you actually have one of the best Flying Star on your sector, the #8 Flying Star which is also know as the Wealth Star. This is somehow tempered by the fact that this is also year and as I mentioned your year is also your bad year. But this will manifest in terms of your drive. You somehow feel that you are drained off life’s energies.

Recommendations:

To appease Tai Suey carry or wear an image of the Piyao or Lung – Ta. It will be nice also if you can continuously engage yourself with charitable works.

To manage the 3 Killings, as mentioned, you can carry an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or wear 3 different images of a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or an Immortal.

To enhance the #8 Flying Star you can wear an image of Kuan Yin, or Kuan Kong or Yellow Dzambhala or one of the three major Buddhas namely Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, and Medicine Buddha.

SHEEP or GOAT

This is a very good year for you. Aside from having the #1 Flying Star called White Victory Star you also blessed by the #8 Flying Star. You are one of the luckiest animal sign of the year. On top of that, you also have the Golden Deity of the 24 Mountain Star and while you’re afflicted with Yearly Conflict, it is very manageable.

Love luck is going to be good for you this year, and wealth luck is simply astounding, not to mention that you can be very successful.

Recommendations:

To enhance your luck, its recommended for you to wear an image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha or Sun Wukong preferably in gold as it will serve as an offering to the Golden Deity of the 24 Mountain Star. Furthermore, carrying the image or having the Victory Banner or Windhorse will also help ensure that your luck is further energized!

 

 

MONKEY

This year the reading for people born in the year of the Monkey is not so straightforward as compared to the other Chinese Animal Zodiacs. Technically speaking you are quite lucky this year specially for those who have their own business and are involve in stocks. However, you are afflicted on both sides with Yearly Conflict or Affliction and this combined with the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee makes this year of the Wood Horse a little complicated.

Although karma always has a role to play in our lives, it is rarely that a year’s forecast will be greatly affected by the previous year’s performance of the Monkey. I hope I’m writing this clearly because it is quite difficult to explain this.

Technically speaking, the Monkey should have a great year aside from some petty obstacles brought about by the Yearly Conflict of the 24 Mountain Star formulas, which flanks the Monkey sector on both sides, which greatly affects your health and makes success quite difficult to achieve. However, you have very good wealth luck. So this means that personal success and career growth may be difficult to get but business luck is quite good.

But here’s the thing. Your luck this year is highly influenced by the karma you sow last year. As mentioned everything that happens to us is either destined by fate, by Feng Shui, and by our immediate karma but it is quite rare that our immediate karma will greatly influence the luck for the year. This year such is the case for people born under the sign of the Monkey.

Needless to say, if you created bad things in 2013, in 2014 the year of the Wood Horse you’ll reap all those bad karma that you sow. The influence of your 2013 deeds to your 2014 life is really big. The good thing is that you have the Golden Deity of the 24 Mountain Star that will enhance good karma or lessen the impact of your bad karma.

Recommendations:

To enhance the #1 Flying Star it is recommended that you wear the Victory Banner or the Lung – Ta or Wind Horse.

For your health carrying a Wu Lou or Holy Gourd or wearing a the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha as a pendant should be able to prevent or counter acting the bad illness chi.

For those who are in business praying and carrying the images of the following Bodhisattva or Deities or Immortals should help. They are Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, Maitreya Buddha or the Happy Fat Buddha.

For those who are employed, again having the Victory Banner or the Lung – Ta should help. Also wearing the image of Kuan Kong should do a lot of help.

To manage your karma, you can wear a gold or jade pendant of the image of Kuan Yin the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Wearing the symbolic script of the Light Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra, OM AH HUM, and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM HANU PASHA BHARA HE YE SOHA, should help ease some of the negative karma.

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

ROOSTER

While you have wealth and success luck, this might be greatly hampered by the fact that you may feel really weak or without energy. Furthermore, you have to watch out for possible controversy or reputation problems with your life. This is largely cause by the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee which is further strengthen by the 2 Yearly Conflict and Energy Reducer of the 24 Mountain Star. The good thing is the #6 Flying Star is on your sector also and this should give you some help from Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals.

Recommendations:

To enhance wealth luck wears the image of Yellow or White Dzambhala or Kuan Kong.

To enhance your success luck you need to enhance your Wind Horse luck by wearing an image of the Lung – Ta or Windhorse. Further strengthen this with the image of Kuan Kong (also spelled or known as Guan Gong, Kuan Ti, Guan Ti) or Victory Banner.

To help deal with Yearly Conflict and Energy Reducer of the 24 Mountain Star you can wear a Kalachakra pendant or an image of Kuan Yin.

It is always beneficial to wear an image of the Kuan Yin but for this year it’s good to also wear the The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra also called The Heart Sutra.

My Kuan Yin pendant has the The Heart of Prajna Paramitra Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of pendant.

DOG

I don’t want to be a pessimist, and I always believe that Feng Shui is so wonderful because it gives us the chance to remedy the problems brought about by the year’s Bazi or Flying Star or 24 Mountain Star.

Sad to say, you might have a challenging year ahead of you. This is largely due to the 5 Yellow Star that runs into your sector. You and people born under the sign of the pig or boar who also have the Five Yellow Star will both have quite a tough year. For you the Yearly Conflict of the 24 Mountain Star further worsens this.

The best thing is to keep a low profile. Be aggressive when it comes to work but keep a low profile. You must totally veer away from getting into risk whether personal or career wise. Don’t do anything that was not carefully studied.

Your love and family luck is not very good as well. You might see a lot of arguments. If you’re not careful, you might have some money problems.

Recommendations:

For the Five Yellow Star it is highly suggested that you manage this by wearing a Kalachakra or a 5 – Element Pagoda. You can strengthen this by also wearing an image of Amitabha Buddha or Medicine Buddha.

Having the image of Kuan Yin will also help. If you can do get a prayer wheel or wear a sutra. The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra better known as The Heart Sutra will be very good.

Carry an image of the Ksitigarbha Fireball or Kuan Kong’s Nine Ring Sword to help counter the argument energy.

Further empower yourself with the Maitreya Buddha or Yellow Dzambhala (also spelled as Jambhala) and with the Wish Fulfilling Mantra. Energize your success luck with the Lung – Ta or Windhorse.

BOAR / PIG

Like people born under the sign of the Dog, you should also keep a low profile. This might be a challenging year for you. You further have to be careful about being robbed because of the Robbery Energy brought about by the 24 Mountain Star. Robbery here may mean actual robbery or people robbing you off your ideas or taking credits for the things that you did.

Your love or family luck is going to be a little better than that of the Dog but it is still going to be chaotic still.

Recommendations:

For the Five Yellow Star it is highly suggested that you manage this by wearing a Kalachakra or a 5 – Element Pagoda. You can strengthen this by also wearing an image of Amitabha Buddha or Medicine Buddha.

Having the image of Kuan Yin will also help. If you can do get a prayer wheel or wear a sutra. The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra better known as The Heart Sutra will be very good.

An image of Kuan Kong or the Kalachakra will help counter the robbery energy brought about by the 24 Mountain Star.

This is a miniature version of the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra which is a sutra closely associated with Kuan Yin. There are a lot of this kind of sutras that printed really small so one can carry it as an amulet.

Please note that the things mentioned in this forecast are base on a generic forecast of the individual animal signs. It is still better to look at your individual luck through your Bazi or Paht Chee.

Front side of the WISH FULLFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING PENDANT

Also as mentioned in the beginning of this post, a lot of you are having problems because of having the need to wear so many things and having to check yearly what to wear. I used to have the same concern that’s why I decided to design for myself and for my family and friends a pendant called WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. A lot of the cures or enhancers mentioned here are on the said pendant. My only frustration is I was unable to include the image of Kuan Yin; this is because when I design the pendant, and each and every member of my family wears a Kuan Yin pendant. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT is a pendant that you can wear regardless of the year because it has all the necessary cure and enhancers so there’s no need to replaced things. Even if you are not afflicted by a certain star, wearing it will simply continue help protect you.

If you wish to understand more about some of the cures mentioned on this post please just click on them:

Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara or Bodhisattva of Compassion, Medicine Buddha, Sun Wukong, Maitreya Buddha or Happy Fat Buddha, Kuan Kong, Yellow Dzambhala, Victory Banner, Three Legged Toad (Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Wealth Luck), Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, Wealth and Master Protection Pendant, Three Celestial Guardian.
