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

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.

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.

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:

2014 Year of the Wood Horse Bazi and Flying Star Feng Shui Forecast: An Imbalanced Chart that Creates an Abundance of Love War

Published December 12, 2013 by jptan2012

Once again it’s the time of the year where I’m busy with my business, because as early as now a lot of companies are doing their annual planning for the following year. But also, I have been receiving emails and text messages asking for my annual forecast, which I started 2 years ago.

Chinese New Year this year will usher in the Wood Horse, and this will show that this year those who are able to bring their positive traits will be the one who are likely to succeed. This doesn’t mean that one has to be flamboyant about their achievement, but neither it is a year to have ‘false’ humility. A silent worker who succeeds will not be recognized, but a hard worker who is able to humbly ‘show off’ his achievements will gain recognition.

Like last year, this year my forecast will include both the Bazi or Paht Chee, and at the same time the Flying Star. As regular readers of this blog will know forecast with the use of Flying Star is not as difficult as most Feng Shui experts would want us to believe. All you have to do is remember the Flying Star number, it’s effect, find out where it’s location for the year and that’s it, you’ll already know the effect.

Let’s start off with the Flying Star forecast. Like before we’ll start off with the East sector.

THE EAST HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR CALLED ILLNESS STAR

Effects: As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. Sometime, this star can also cause some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. For this year, the star directly affects people born under the year of the Rabbit, and it might create some effect also with people born under the sign of the Tiger and Dragon. Technically speaking this should no longer affect people born under the sign of the Ox. However, due to the magnetic effects of some bad stars of the 24 Mountains calculation, this star will also greatly affect people under the sign of the Ox. People whose room is in the East section of their house should also take note. Furthermore, it will affect the eldest son or the only son of a family. The Flying Star #2 is also going to affect people whose house door faces East also.

Feng Shui Cure: The primary cure for the ILLNESS STAR is the Medicine Buddha. Wear an image of the Medicine Buddha as pendant or wear the symbolic script of the mantra of the Medicine Buddha to help counter the ill effects of the said star. Chanting the mantra of the Medicine Buddha is also a great way to manage the said star. Secondary cure is Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd. Please note that it is considered very disrespectful if you put an image of the Medicine Buddha in your room, so in this case one can put the Holy Gourd.

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE #3 FLYING STAR CALLED 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. This year it will also greatly affect people born under the signs of the dragon and horse. And people whose room or office is in the Southeast section of the building or house. Not to mention, houses whose door faces the Southeast section will also encounter problems that were mentioned.

Feng Shui Cure: The best cures for this star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball 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.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl on the hand of  Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

THE SOUTH HAS THE #8 FLYING STAR CALLED WEALTH STAR BUT THE TAI SUEY ALSO GOES TO THE SOUTH SECTOR

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. This is a star ruled by the earth element that moved into a sector ruled by fire. Regular readers of this blog knows that earth is strengthen by the Fire element, and as we discussed the Paht Chee or Bazi of the year, you’ll know that we can find a strong fire element this year, so this is a star that is particularly strong this year. People born under the year of the horse, snake, and sheep will benefit from this star.

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.

Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Pilgrim aka 'Great Sage, Equal to Heaven' is a very powerful wealth and protector god. He is one of the few deities worshipped both in Taoism (also spelled as Daoism) and Buddhism.

However, it should be noted that this year, the Tai Suey God is also in the South. It has to be noted that Tai Suey is not part of the Flying 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’s Tai Suey God is General Zhang Ci. 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.

The 2014 Tai Suey God is General Zhang Chi.

The 2014 Tai Suey God is General Zhang Chi.

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 horse and rat, who are directly afflicted by the Tai Suey and Snake and Sheep who are in side conflict and Pig / Boar and Ox who are in semi – conflict with the Tai Suey should have either the Piyao or Lung – Ta. Also, if your door faces South, or if your bedroom and office is in the South you should also put the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta or Windhorse. People who are occupying the south also should wear or carry the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta.Piyao4

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE #1 FLYING STAR CALLED WHITE VICTORY STAR

Effects: This star brings luck to your endeavors. It helps ensure your success. This year the White Victory Star also ensures that mothers will have a ruling power over their children.

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.

The Victory Banner is considered as one of the 8 Auspicious Object in Buddhism.

Furthermore, the Southwest also has the star of Golden Deity. So having gold colored Kuan Kong or Kuan Yin or Yellow Dzambhala in this sector (unless it’s a bedroom) will enhanced the energy of the White Victory Star. Also, wearing the image of Yellow Dzambhala, or Kuan Kong or Kuan Yin in gold will also help enhance the energy of the White Victory Star.

The biggest image of Kuan Yin in the world is in China.

THE WEST HAS THE #6 FLYING STAR CALLED HEAVEN’S BLESSINGS AND MENTOR STAR

Effects: This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room is in the West 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 Rooster 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.

Goddess Tara is also known as Green Tara because of her green color.

Goddess Tara is also known as Green Tara because of her green color.

 

THE NORTHWEST HAS THE #5 FLYING STAR OR THE DREADED FIVE YELLOW STAR

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!

Feng Shui Cure: AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. You can also use the Five Element Pagoda ( 5 – Element Pagoda ), or the Kalachakra. 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 or the Five Element Pagoda. Furthermore, people born in the year of the Dog and Pig or Boar should also ensure that they wear either the Five Element Pagoda or the Kalachakra.

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.

It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of the Kalachakra.

 

THE NORTH HAS THE #9 FLYING STAR CALLED THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR AND IT IS JOINED BY THE THREE KILLINGS

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. The Rat is also affected by this star thus it will be good if he/she can be more conscious of the things he/she does.

Feng Shui Cure: 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.

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the North. 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.

Another 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 North section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the South or North 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).

Three Celestial Guardinas consists of the Fu Dog, Pi Yao (Piyao), and Chi Lin (Chilin).

Three Celestial Guardinas consists of the Fu Dog, Pi Yao (Piyao), and Chi Lin (Chilin).

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO CALLED THE VIOLENT STAR

Effects: The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. This year it will greatly affect people under the sign of the ox and tiger.

Feng Shui Cure: One of the following items – Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God), Image of Kuan Kong (also known as Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, Kuan Te Ya, Guan Te Ya, Guan Gong), Image Elephant with Rhinoceros. For people who are staying on this side have the house or office, or for people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger, it is advisable to wear an image of Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, or a Mantra Pendant. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that has the image of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT that has the image of Kuan Kong are also advisable.

Sun Wukong or The Great Sage Equal of Heaven (aka Monkey God, Monkey King, Victorious Fighting Buddha, Bimawen, Pilgrim) is a very powerful protector and wealth god. He is one of the few deities/buddha reverred both in Taoism and Buddhism. As far as I know this is the only Sun Wukong pendant made of real gold. Have been looking for one for quite some time because I know that Sun Wukong is both a wealth and protector god, however, I can't find any, not even in China, HK, Singapore, and Taiwan, so I decided to just make my own. If interested to get this pendant please email me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com .

THE CENTER HAS THE #4 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE SCHOLASTIC AND ROMANCE 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. Since this stars goes to the center this year it affects all of us.

Feng Shui Enhancer: 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. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only.

And like before, we should take into consideration the year’s Paht Chee or Bazi. This year’s Bazi shows an imbalanced chart. There are 4 Yang Fire elements, 3 Wood elements 2 of which are Yang, and 1 Yin Metal. It’s pretty obvious that earth and water elements are missing. The good news here is that the year pillar shows a productive cycle or relationship and that is of the Wood and Fire element. This means that for this year, it is those who are aggressive that will enjoy great amount of success.

However, the relationship of the elements in the Bazi also shows that there is a tendency for people to misunderstand each other and for people to enter a lot of arguments. Thus, we might see more fighting both on a personal level and on a larger scale. The Philippines and China Scarborough problem will continue. It might even escalate.

This also means that people who are diplomatic will also tend to shine. These are the sheep, rabbit, pig or boar and dog. In fact, if you want peace in the family, bring in images of dogs and better yet get a real dog but do this only if and only if you can take care of the dog properly and that you can ensure that he or she grows up a well-rounded dog. You can also get a rabbit, but ensure that you take care of it properly also.

People whose Bazi chart shows a lack of Fire and/or high Earth elements will also do well this year. It is important to note that although the year is lacking of water element, there is no need to enhance the water element. In fact, people with high water rating on their bazi will see themselves having some problems, unless, of course this is negated by having very low or lacking personal fire element.

For this year, it is highly advisable that we should all have at least some gemstones on our body. Wearing jade, amber, and / or other precious or semi – precious stones will help enhance the positive chi of the year and serves as a protection against the negative effects of an imbalanced chart.

If there’s something that one should really worry about this year is the love energy. The love energy doesn’t always mean it’s good because while it can create romantic luck, it can also create extra marital affairs. Arguments that may lead to litigation or irrevocable fight or even war is also quite strong force this year. The best Feng Shui cures to use against these are the Kalachakra and the image of Kuan Kong. Tapping into the loving energy of the Buddha of Compassion Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin and the healing energy of the Medicine Buddha are also powerful means to help counter the negative energy of that causes arguments.

Before I end this forecast, I would like to share that a lot of people are having some problems with the number of charms to wear and to keep track of the cures and enhancers that one has to wear to protect and enhance their Feng Shui. This is why I created, first, the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which was followed by the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT feature SUN WUKONG, and has the images of the Three Celestial Guardians and the Ksitigarbha Fireball and Five Element Pagoda. While the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT features Medicine Buddha, Kuan Kong, Yellow Dzambhala, the Kalachakra, Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, and the symbolic scripts of the mantra OM AH HUM, the mantra of the Medicine Buddha, the Wish Fulfilling and the Karma Cleansing Mantra with the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara. I designed the pendant to make sure that I don’t have to change the pendant every year. With the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT I don’t have to worry about the annual, monthly, or even the daily Flying Star. Since writing about it a lot of people has requested for the pendant, and my only frustration about it is that it is quite pricey.

The last object on the 8 Auspicious Objects of Buddhism is the Dharmachakra Wheel.

The truth is Dharmachakra means Wheel, so to call it Dharmachakra Wheel is a bit redundant, however, Dharmachakra Wheel is a term where most people outside Tibet are familiar with, so it is the term that I’ll be using here.dharmachakra wheel

The Dharmachakra Wheel is a symbol of Buddha’s teaching, however, the different parts each have their own iconography. The rim represents the factor of limitation, the hub represents the Earth’s axis, and the eight spokes shows the Eightfold Path dictated by Buddha.

In Feng Shui, the Dharmachakra Wheel is a powerful symbol to use for surmounting all shortcomings. Furthermore, the Dharmachakra Wheel is a powerful protection symbol that we can use to protect all the non-material things that are important to us.

conch-shellIn ancient times the Conch Shell is used as a trumpet horn, and was considered as a symbol of strength and sovereignty. It is also said that ‘heroic figures’ are also given the conch shell as a symbol of gratitude from the ruler. Religiously, specially in Tibetan Buddhism, the conch shell is a ‘vessel’ for holy water and holy oil, and is also used as a trumpet to signify the start of an important religious event.

In Feng Shui, the conch shell is a powerful tool for those who wants to be able to prosper in their business ventures. It is also extremely beneficial for politicians to carry a conch shell because it will help them be stable in their position.

Carrying a conch shell is also a powerful tool to help a person attain a higher level of meditation.

A pink lotus flower and lily pads with saturated colorThere are a lot of Buddhist and Taoist icons that are depicted either sitting on a lotus or are holding a lotus. This is because the growth pattern of  a lotus represents the development that a being can make. The lotus has the ability to blossom out of dirty or muddy water – which represents materialism, the it grows past the water – which indicates experience, and make its way towards the sun – which represents enlightenment. It is a symbol of both mental and spiritual purity. The lotus which is a water flower is a symbol of blossoming decent deeds, that results in purification of the both mind and body.

In Feng Shui, the lotus also has the power to transform bad luck into good luck, and it is also said that the lotus has the power to drive out negative energies.

Wearing an image of the lotus made of a white stone or jade will help bring lots of blessings. It will also help in the attainment of the enlightenment.

The treasure vase, even without the ritual and powerful ingredients that goes with it is a very powerful wealth – granting symbol or object. It is a powerful object that brings tons of material and financial prosperity.

In China, a lot of the rich people their has wealth vase hidden in their cupboard or cabinets. Some of the noveau rich in China also has wealth vase in their living rooms. I personally believe that wealth vases should be hidden and not displayed.

Thus a pair of golden fish is good for people who are facing financial troubles with their partners.

I know I have written about some of the 8 Auspicious Objects of Buddhism in passing before, but I really haven’t written about all of them. So please allow me to introduce you to The Eight Auspicious Objects of Buddhism and it’s Feng Shui use.8 Auspicious

Before anything else, allow me to share that the 8 Auspicious Objects are a series of different symbols that individually and collectively represents different forms of luck. The Eight Auspicious Objects, which is also called as the Eight Auspicious Symbols, appeared on many different types of Buddhist artifacts like paintings, carvings, etc. Each symbol on its own represents a feature of Buddhist teaching, and corresponds to a certain blessing. When shown together, they become some form a wish-fulfilling symbol of the different aspirations and also becomes a protective symbol.

The Eight Auspicious Objects are the parasol, the wealth vase, lotus, the conch shell, the mystical mystic knot (also known as the endless knot), a pair of golden fish, the victory banner, and the dharmachakra wheel.

The first of these 8 Auspicious Symbols is the Parasol.

As most people know, the parasol which is an umbrella used for protection from the heat and rays of the sun. The parasol is an ancient symbol of protection used by the royalty, thus it represents protection, which is bestowed upon the beholder of this auspicious object.

The Parasol is said to prevent sadness, anguish, and obstacles. Its secondary effect is to protect us from devious spiritual forces. Thus this is the object carried by one of the most powerful protection goddess of Buddhism – the WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast: Rat and Ox (Part 2)

Published December 22, 2012 by jptan2012

Photo Uploaded from Google Images

FIRST, THE RAT…

Will generally have a good year. You’ll find that your career will be great and you will be quite successful. Wealth luck might be good also. I say might, because while you have the potential to have this luck, it might be dampen a little by the Black Sky Star, which is found through the use of the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology. Nevertheless, this year you’ll find yourself surrounded by helpful people and it’s up to you to utilize them.

However, you’ll also find yourself a little overwhelmed with the possible work ahead of you. Remember you can only get your wealth luck if you work for it and being swallowed by the task ahead will set you back.

You have to be careful though with your health luck. This is also due to the presence of the Black Sky Star. While this won’t bring about any serious illness, having this star might set you back a little because of a bad cold or a fever.

When it comes to relationships, this is quite a bad year for both the single and partnered rat.

The Black Sky Star is further aggravated by the two clashing pillars of the year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of a Protective God (Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) or Amitabha Buddha) to protect yourself from the Black Sky Star.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Wear or carry an image the Victory Banner.

Wear a Holy Gourd or a Medicine Buddha Pendant, preferably with Mantra.

Carry or wear the Double Happiness symbol.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

SECOND, THE OX…

Will have a very good year for both personal and professional life. Your life palace shows that you have the Wealth Star and this means that money will easily come to you this year. However, note that you have the tendency to get into a lot of argument, so just simply watch out for that. This is further strengthened by the Excellent Seal Star, which is shown by using the Purple Flower Star Astrology.

The Ox born in 1973 should watch out for the Snake born in September of 1965. For some reason, which started last year, the two signs, which are normally friendly to each other, will find themselves clashing. The Ox seems to be at the loosing end, but the Snake seems to be at the wrong. However, this is not generalizing but seems to be what is indicated in the chart. While this particularly true between the Ox born in the year 1973 and Snake born in the year 1965 with focus on the month of September, all Ox born people must be careful in getting into arguments which might lead to a long term disagreement or fight.

The Purple Star Astrology shows that there are a number of minor namely the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star, which might cause some accidents and/or aggravate the possibility of an argument.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear as a pendant an image of the Wealth Deity/God like Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong. This is if you want to further enhance your wealth luck. They will also act as a protector from the effects of the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star.

Wear or carry the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

TENTH, THE ROOSTER…

Will have very good financial wealth luck this year. However, the presence of the violent star in your life palace indicates that you have to be careful about losing your money. Be careful also for possible violent incidents this year.

Career wise it will also be very good for you. However, the presence of Crooked Star as indicated by the Purple Star Astrology indicates that you might have some reputation problem towards the middle of the year.

However, you will also notice that you will seldom get recognized by your efforts and that other people might get credit from your hard work. Because of this, success in terms of recognition might not be attained.

However, be happy that the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology also indicates the presence of General Power Star and the Land Relief Star. The General Power Star indicates that if you get into a problem, you will find solutions easily if you focus on your own strength, also the Land Relief Star will also give you the resources that you need to attain whatever you wish for.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong to protect you from the violent star.

Wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha (also fondly and popularly called as the Happy Fat Buddha) to cure the effects of the Crooked Star.

Wear or carry a Victory Banner to help you become always victorious.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi.

ELEVENTH, THE DOG…

Will have a good year even if wealth luck is not very high. You have the Heaven’s Luck or Blessing star in your life palace and you’ll find yourself being bless in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to your personal life. While wealth luck is not very high, it is neither bad. In fact, you’ll still see some improvement.

The Purple Star Astrology indicates the presence of two other stars. First, the Death Amulet Star, which means that there is a possibility of death or serious illness not with the Dog itself but may be with an elderly family member.

The other star is the Haul Paddle Star, which indicates that there is going to be a big professional change in your life this year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear a 3-Legged Toad pendant or an image of the Yellow Dzambhala as a pendant to enhance your career luck.

Put an image of Kuan Yin (The Goddess of Mercy), or the Medicine Buddha to counter the effects of the Death Amulet Star.

To ensure that the Haul Paddle Star enters smoothly wear an image of the Goddess Tara or the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara, which is TAM. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT also has the seed syllable TAM.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

TWELFTH, THE BOAR/PIG…

Is in direct conflict with the Tai Sue and this might pose some of the difficulties in attaining your personal luck and your heaven’s luck.

Wealth luck is average, however, since your life palace is flank by a Violent Star, you will have to be careful that you don’t lose this through robbery. Be careful also that you don’t get into unnecessary expenditures also.

Personal luck should be better, unless you’re unable to appease the Tai Suey.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Carry or wear a Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

Wear a Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong) to protect you from the Violent Star.
