The Darker Part of the Year Base on the 2017 Bazi Chart Has Started!

Published Oktubre 4, 2017 by jptan2012

I think most, if not all, Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui writers or Feng Shui consultants (whether commercialized or not) agrees that we have officially entered the darker part of THE the year base on the 2017 bazi chart (paht chee chart). Regular readers of this blog will remember that I have written about this during my annual forecast.

First, I wrote that a ‘calamity’ will happen on the 3rd quarter of the year or it may start to happen at around the third quarter and we will start to feel its effect towards the 4th quarter or next year. Please note that I’m talking about the 3rd quarter to 4th quarter of the lunar month and not of the Western Calendar that we regularly use officially.

Just recently, internationally famous Feng Shui expert Lillian Too has announced that we have entered the darker part of the year. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong has said the same thing and furthermore, my Guru Lama has said the energies of the year have since become more negative.

Last Hungry Ghost month, which was in the 3rd quarter of the Lunar Month, saw the calamities and typhoons that struck different countries. I have written about this but failed to mention that it happened also in Nepal, India and other countries. It also happened recently in Puerto Rico, which was at the tail end of the Hungry Ghost month, but the real tragedy is that the POTUS refused to help them and became more concerned about trivial matter.

Rohingya Muslims persecutions has also become worst and might have reached it’s peak during the Hungry Ghost month.

In the Philippines, politically speaking we are in a turmoil. I don’t want to be political on this blog, but if you base it on the bazi chart and what my Guru Lama is saying, something bad has started to brew and will see it’s effect soon, which is towards the end of the year or early next year.

What is important now, regardless of your political belief or affiliation, is for you to think beyond yourself and think for this country or for this world. And I’m saying this not just for the Filipinos but also for everybody who reads regardless of whether where you live. Remember, there is brewing war that involves North Korea – USA – Japan. This war is not a matter of ‘if’ but rather of ‘when’. And the truth is it has started on a more discreet level.

Again, generally speaking a good leader is somebody who unifies rather than one who is divisive. A good leader accepts that there will be opposition and embrace it as part of it’s growth, and not somebody who tries to attack and silence those who attack him or her. A good leader is somebody who sticks to the facts and not makes up stories to malign those who oppose him or her. A good leader doesn’t come up with false stories just because he or she knows that there are people who are blind followers.

But it is time for us to get out of our own comfort zone because we have to share the truth; each of us has to do that in our own way. And we should all start praying that things will get better. We can oppose these dark energies with prayers.

On a personal level, money matters might become harder thus my Guru Lama decided to release the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET (1), and on top of that one should always protect oneself with good deeds, prayers, and amulets.

While we should be more concern on the macro effects of the dark energies that has come in, it is not to say that this will not have any effect on us on a personal level. As mentioned, on a personal level the effect will be mostly financial, although it might have some effect on communication and personal relationships as well. Furthermore, it will have an effect on our personal safety. It is important that one continues to pray and save some money. Again protect yourself, wear your gold Kalachakra pendant, or Vajrapani Ruel, or even the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, the Illness Suppression Amulet. If you don’t have these, you can wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (aka Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled or called as Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Avalokitesvara, Chenrezig, Kannon, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy), or Buddha Amitabha, or Medicine Buddha.

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs (Chinese Horoscope)

Published Enero 6, 2017 by jptan2012

I have been receiving calls and messages and even emails asking about my annual forecast. I’m sorry for the delay, my forecast is manually analyzed so it does take some time. While most Feng Shui sites has a pool of geomancers who do their forecast, this blog only has me to do everything, and coupled with the hectic December, it really takes time for me to finish this tedious process. I also make sure that I cross reference important points with my Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teachers.

At the end, it took me several days to finish working on the charts and analysis. And it took me 10 days to write this long but simple post. Because I want to make sure that I put the right words into the analysis and the right cure. You will notice that I have streamed line the cures, I decided to simply put the best cures that I believe will work. As a Feng Shui writer I realized that I should act like a doctor and not confused my readers with a lot of ‘medicine’ I should simply recommend the best cure I think that will work.

Also, in the past years I get a lot of complaints and request that I should put the pictures of the cures and enhancers everytime I mention them, because not all of you read all the forecast of each of the animal sign. I have heeded that request so that you don’t have to check online if you’re not familiar with mentioned cure or enhancer.

So after this long tedious process, which consists of 22 pages and 13,752 words (the normal newspaper article is between 500 to 1,000 words) without the Notes and footnotes on the photos, I humbly present to you my annual forecast for each of the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Horoscope).

I will start with the good news, while there are signs that need to be extra careful like the Horse and the Sheep, this year there is no single Chinese Animal Zodiac Sign that will experience what the Ox went through in 2016. In 2016 amongst the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs, the Ox experienced a largely strong Wu Wang (#5 Flying Star, Five Yellow Star) and was devoid of any good stars, not to mention that the year was ruled by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, a star that causes not only illness but accidents also.

This year, although the #5 Flying Star, which is also known as the Wu Wang or 5 – Yellow Star and will be alternately called as such on this post, is still quite strong. Although not as strong as that of in 2016, but one the Horse and the Sheep, also including the Monkey has to be careful because these two dreaded stars lands side by side. Thus increasing it’s negative effects. But still unlike in 2016, all the animal signs this year has some good stars, unlike what happened to the Ox, which was totally devoid of any good stars. On top of that the year is ruled by the #1 Flying Star also known as Victory Star. And having the White Victory Star will also aid some good energies to the both the Sheep and the Horse.

There has been some confusion as to which animal sign has the best luck this year. Some say it’s the Rat, but I personally consider that it is the Ox; the only difference is that the Rat has some constant positive energy across all age groups, while with the Ox, born in 1961, where they experience bad financial luck. However, this can be remedied.

On a personal note, I’m quite happy that the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is about to end already. This is because both on a personal level and as a Feng Shui writer or Feng Shui blogger and as reluctant Feng Shui consultant, I personally saw or heard a lot of troubling stories about people who were severely affected by the really strong Wu Wang this year that hit the Northeast, thereby severely affecting all those who stays in the Northeast and people who were born under the year of the Ox and Tiger. This coupled with the #2 Flying Star, which is the ruling star of 2016, thus creating a lot of accidents and illness. I personally have people who are relatively close to me or readers or their relatives and friends who had accidents and or fell ill and passed away. A lot of them are Ox and Tiger born. In fact, in Hollywood, they called these negative things that happened in 2016 as the ‘Curse of 2016’. And I bet a lot of you might have encountered some people who have experienced a lot of negative things, especially those who got sick or died. Obviously, not all these people are born in the years of the Ox or Tiger, but I’m willing to bet that a lot of them are and a lot of them are and/or a number of them fell ill and passed away without so much warning. All these are happening because of the very strong Wu Wang and the dominating energy of the year, which is the Illness Star. Again the illness star is a star that causes illness and accidents also.

The truth is according to my Guru Lama all the killings that happened in the Philippines, and also abroad are effects of the illness star. Chances are this will lessen on 2017, but if we are to look at the annual Bazi chart, it will not be totally stopped.

I also would like to note that Chinese New Year officially comes in on January 28, 2017 and the full shifting of energies comes in on Feb. 4, 2017. However, again don’t be surprised if you feel the shift of the energies as early as now. And there is also a prevalent Feng Shui theory that the negative energies become harsher towards the end of the lunar year. At this point, I still would like to warn people who are in the Northeast, and people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger that the month of January is still not a very good month. The way to deal with this is simply to put your protective amulets and continue to chant mantras, recite sutras, and pray hard.

NOTE: That on the Year of the Fire Rooster this 2017, everybody should try to citrine, either as a bracelet or necklace or ring. It is also quite important that all of us should wear a gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva) pendant.

citrine2

One sure way of knowing that your Citrine is that it has bubble – like inclusions and has some cracks inside. The shade of one single stone is also seldom constant, you’ll find some parts darker some parts almost white. These are signs of a real citrine, otherwise if its perfect it’s either fake or cost a thousand fold more expensive.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Anyway, before I proceed to the main forecast, this year I would like to keep it simple. In the previous years, I always go into detail with the Bazi or Paht Chee analysis of each animal sign and I also discuss all the causes of the good or bad luck of an animal sign. I have been receiving emails that some people find it quite confusing. So I have decided to keep it simpler, although I will still put some of the cause, because I believe that educating my readers about the stars will help you arm yourself in the future without relying too much of Feng Shui consultants or Feng Shui writers like me.

Here now is my 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs (Chinese Horoscope).


RAT

RAT Chinese Zodiac

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

This is going to be quite a good year for the people born under the sign of the Rat. This is a year where you will shine and this is a year wherein you should not be timid and you should take hold of the blessings that surround you. You have a very good life chi and spirit chi, this means that you will be ‘full of life’ both literally and figuratively speaking. This year you will see yourself reaching new heights of success and with an extra boost of morale.

Change is also one of the keywords for people born under the year of the Rat. I’m not referring to change of career, although it can be that also, but you might be surprised with some unexpected upward development in your place of work or business. This is especially true for the 45 – year old rats.

Although I mentioned change as one of the keywords of your luck this year, this doesn’t mean that the instability that usually comes with change will be present. No you will prove that stability can be present in change. In fact, you will find yourself financially stable. If you want to enhance this good luck, it will be nice if you can carry a Vajrapani Ruel to give you that boost of positive luck and make it your winning edge, or you wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold and as a pendant.

Your main star in the Flying Star Formula shows that you have the #6 Flying Star, which is also known as the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star. As the word connote it is a star that helps you tap into the blessings from heaven and also this is a star that gives you the blessings of a mentor. Meaning this year, especially when you need it most, you will encounter people who would be willing to help you achieve your goal. Mentor here means these are people of stature who can help pave the way for you, but it also means it can be friends, family or colleagues who can help you in your path to success. You just have to be open and sensitive as whom these people are. In Feng Shui it is advisable to activate this star by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Taoist Gods into your life both as image that can be placed at home or something that you wear. For this year I strongly suggest the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Gold for the high yang energy that comes with it’s metal element that we need for resources.

The other good news is that the Rat also as a Big Auspicious star lend to him from the side of his zodiac ally the Ox. This is quite good because this star helps to bring in good luck or good fortune. For this year, activating this star will help bring in tremendous amount of wealth and fortune. You can activate this by inviting an image of a golden Ox (again gold because you will need the yang energy of gold and at the same we all need to strengthen the metal element for us to activate the resources energy, which will spell a lot of difference in this year’s luck as shown in the year’s Bazi chart). And as mentioned the year’s success and failure of each person is determined by the power you hold and so aside from the citrine that we all have to wear, in activating the Big Auspicious Star, it will be good if one can get the image of a golden Ox that is on top of a Jade. Jade aside from being an earth element, jade is also a symbol of power, so in activating the Big Auspicious Star, you will also need the jade to strengthen your power this year.

Unfortunately, the Rat also has some bad stars brought about by the 24 Mountain Star Formula, namely the Star of Reducing Energy and the Yearly Conflict Star.

The Star of the Reducing Energy may help weaken your life force and spirit force and physically you may also become weaker. To help protect yourself from the negative energies of this star, it may help for you to have the new Illness Suppression Amulet (I still don’t have this with me at the moment) or the Windhorse and a Wu Lou (also known as Wulou or Holy Gourd).

Remember that you are in indirect conflict with the Tai Sui (Tai Suey or Grand Duke Jupiter) God of the year. It will definitely help if you carry a Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pixie) that has an active stance.

piyao pendant2

Piyao Pendant made of jade.

In terms of over – all health forecast the 9, 33, and 69 – year –old Rats should be careful about their health. This is base on the annual Bazi Chart or Paht Chee chart of the year, then cross reference with the Bazi or Paht Chee of the Rat. This should not be a very major concern but it is best to take caution. To manage this, one can wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of Medicine Buddha or a Wulou.medicine buddha pendantb

The Wealth and Financial Forecast for the people born under the sign of the Rat is extremely positive, this is again base on the elemental formula base on the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart. However, it might not come as easy as for the 21, 57, and 81 – year – old Rats. But carrying a Vajrapani Ruel with you should help negate this slight imbalance.

If you’re skipping all the forecast of the other signs, please make sure to check out the continuation at the end of the forecast for the PIG.


OX

Ox Chinese Zodiac

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

I’m so excited to write about this year’s forecast for the Ox. You see when I was writing about what’s in store for people born under the sign of the Ox for the 2016 forecast, I was struggling really hard to ensure that I will not sound so pessimistic, because of the very grim prognosis for people under the sign of the Ox. I still remember that I was struggling to say something good and positive, which was made really difficult because all the formula shows only negative things, and indeed 2016 was one of the worst time for people born under the sign of the Ox (and Tiger). Although, we’ll have to wait until January 28, 2017 and for the stabilization of the energies of Feb. 4, 2017, the good news for people born under the sign of the Ox is that if last year, Ox has the worst luck, this 2017 Year of the Fire Monkey, Ox born people has the best luck!

If we are to look at the elemental formula forecast base on the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee chart of the year and cross-referenced with the Ox’s own Bazi Chart, the luck of Ox is only average. This is although technically speaking that ruling Chinese Animal Zodiac of the year, the Rooster, is an ally of the Ox. This has something to do with the relationships of the elements base on Paht Chee chart of the year. However, this shouldn’t be a cause for despair, because both the Flying Stars Formula and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula shows only good stars!!! If last year the Ox is surrounded only of negative stars from all formulas, this 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster the Ox is only surrounded by good stars, and that more than compensates for the average elemental luck. Still, the average elemental luck base on the Paht Chee should be remedied, especially towards the end of the year the energies will tend to be hostile. For this, I highly recommend that all Ox – born people should wear a citrine. It can be a bracelet, a pendant, or a ring. In fact, I recommend getting a new set of citrines to make the energies fresh. Then this average elemental forecast or luck should be boost by wearing an image of the Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Again, it is important to wear it in gold because one needs the yang energy of the gold and we need to activate the resources energies by using strengthening our metal element. Earth Store Bodhisattva will also be the protector for the hostile energies towards the end of the year.

People born under the sign of the Ox enjoy a harmonious relationship of the energies thus paving the way for a smooth flow of energy (most of the time). Ox born people has the Spiritual Chi and Life Chi needed to rise above problems and obstacles that they might encounter this year. Although this is actually only average, the natural harmonious energies in favor of the Ox should make this stronger. But the best way to further strengthen this is simply to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant.

Most Feng Shui experts and consultants, especially my Feng Shui teacher, believes that there is something major good that will happen to most Ox – born people.

While in 2016 the Ox has the dreaded Wu Wang (#5 Flying Stars, Five Yellow Star) as their ruling star, this year the Ox has the #4 Flying Star also known as Romantic and Scholastic Star. For single Ox this means that there is a stronger possibility of finding one’s love. For those who are partnered or who are attached, this means that your love for each other will be stronger, but it could also mean the possibility of the a 3rd party getting involved in one of you or both of you. The usual cure for this is to have the image of a rooster with a fan. However, this year the rooster is afflicted with the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argument Star so bringing in this symbol will make couples argue. So instead you can put an amethyst geode at the foot of your bed tied with a red string. Having the Surangama Mantra Amulet should also protect you from 3rd party interference.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

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

But this also means that scholastic luck is going to be good this year. For students, you’ll find yourself learning the lessons easier. And for those who are involve in careers, or businesses, or jobs that involves research this should also mean that this should be a good year for you. Furthermore, it is surrounded by the good flying stars 168!

As I said, last year even the 24 Mountain Stars formula only shows negative stars. This year, the Ox is only surrounded by good stars. The first of these good stars from the 24 Mountain Stars formula is the Earth Seal Star, this stars helps boost your life chi but at the same time it help strengthen your stability. To further strengthen this again it would be wise to wear a gold Earth Store Bodhisattva pendant.

The Ox also has the Big Auspicious Stars, and I’m not talking about one Big Auspicious Star, but two Big Auspicious Stars! This is, well to be redundant about it, extremely auspicious! This has the potential to give the Ox – born people some windfall luck, especially about unexpected income or wealth! Furthermore, this may help bring an Ox person to a new level of success in terms of career or business! There is no need for the Ox to activate the said star because unlike the Ox it landed on the Ox’s sector.

The Ox – born people will also enjoy good health. However, the 32 and 68 – year – old Ox can be prone to some illness or accidents. So it is better to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha or a Medicine Buddha prayer wheel.

I’m sure the Ox – born people will be very happy to find out that generally speaking wealth luck is going to be really good! This is especially true for the 44 and 68 – year old Ox. This is where I slightly differ in perspective, and upon confirmation with my Feng Shui teacher he agrees with me that the 80 – year – old Ox also has a good wealth luck, it may not be as good as the 44 and 68 – years – old, but still good. However, amongst the Ox – born people, the 20-year – old and the 55-year – old has law wealth luck. In fact, some Feng Shui expert will put it as bad. This has something to do with 20 and 55 – year – old elemental luck. But there’s no need to worry because you can simply invite the wealth luck of the ‘other’ Ox. You do this by wearing or carrying an image of a gold Ox (pendant) on top of a Jade. Why gold? Gold again for the yang energy and the energy of wealth that is found in gold, again jade because it is a symbol of power and also has the earth element, which is the direct energy of power this year. Again, as mentioned this year who has power has the upper hand on everything.

goldoxjade

In getting this look for an Ox that looks ‘young’ and in active stance but still relax. This one is a perfect example. This one also has the symbol of luck inscribed on the Ox.

If you’re skipping all the forecast of the other signs, please make sure to check out the continuation at the end of the forecast for the PIG.


 

TIGER

1TIGER

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

In 2016, the Tiger has the second worst luck and was only saved by a good star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. This year, the Tiger also enjoys almost the same luck with that of the Ox, but is tempered by some bad stars from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. So you see, it was the reversed of what happened last time. But what a Tiger – born person should remember is that while there some obstacles that might have to be dealt with, the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster can have some very auspicious blessings and great success in store for you.

Remember that you are almost as lucky as the Ox this year, but unlike the Ox where they seem to be always met by blessings and opportunities, you will have to look or open the door yourself. You need to be aggressive. To help take away these obstacles to your full success, I highly recommend that you carry the Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered as the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon. The Vajrapani Ruel should also help in strengthening your weak life chi and inner chi. And to strengthen your power and put stability to the already conflicting year as discussed in the first part of the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster forecast, wearing a gold Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant should help you achieve and access the luck that is already for you.

Like the Ox, you also have the #4 Flying Star, which is also known as the Romantic and Scholastic Star. While in 2016 the Tiger and the Ox has the dreaded Wu Wang (#5 Flying Stars, Five Yellow Star) as their ruling star, this year the Tiger and the Ox has the #4 Flying Star also known as Romantic and Scholastic Star. For single Tigers this means that there is a stronger possibility of finding one’s love. For those who are partnered or who are attached, this means that your love for each other will be stronger, but it could also mean the possibility of the a 3rd party getting involved in one of you or both of you. The usual cure for this is to have the image of a rooster with a fan. However, this year the rooster is afflicted with the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argument Star so bringing in this symbol will make couples argue. So instead you can put an amethyst geode at the foot of your bed tied with a red string. Having the Surangama Mantra Amulet should also protect you from 3rd party interference.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

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

But this also means that scholastic luck is going to be good this year. For students, you’ll find yourself learning the lessons easier. And for those who are involve in careers, or businesses, or jobs that involves research this should also mean that this should be a good year for you.

Luckily you also have the Big Auspicious Star, and like the Ox you don’t need to activate this star. This star should help you achieve new heights in your career and wealth luck. And this should also temper the Robbery Star from the 24 Mountain Star Formula that goes directly into your sector. The Robbery Star as the name implies loss from malicious intent of wealth, recognition, or even good name. More importantly this also strengthen the possibility of a 3rd party interference in relationships of those who are already partnered or attached. But putting an amethyst geode with a red string and wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet should help prevent the interference of a 3rd party.

Aside from the Robbery Star, you also have the side affliction of the 3 Killings (Three Killings). But with the Vajrapani Ruel this would have been addressed already.

Generally speaking the health forecast for all Tiger – born people are not so good to average only. But the 31 and 55 years old Tigers should take the most caution. Remember in Feng Shui illness can also mean accidents that would result to illness and maybe even death. So it will be good for all Tigers to have either the Illness Suppression Amulet, or Medicine Buddha pendant, or Medicine Buddha prayer wheel, or a Wu Lou (Wulou, Holy Gourd).

Again the wealth forecast should be good, especially if a Tiger person is able to create his own opportunity. So it will help if a Tiger – born person will wear a citrine with a 9 – eye DZI and also wear or invite an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong or called as Guan Yu or Sangharama Bodhisattva) into their home.

If you’re skipping all the forecast of the other signs, please make sure to check out the continuation at the end of the forecast for the PIG.


 

RABBIT

RABBIT chinese zodiac

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

Like the Tiger – born people, the Rabbit also has a lot of potential this 2017, but you shouldn’t be timid about it. There is a wide range of opportunities and luck for you as a long as you ‘create’ the opportunity and look for the door of good luck yourself. This year, the Rabbit should focus more on his or her professional life rather than dwell on family life. I’m not saying that one should be simply career oriented; it’s just that a Rabbit – born person should learn more to handle the pressures of a family life that may be a little troublesome. But simply dwelling on them might create more problems. However, for these potential family problems you can simply put a Traditional Sutra Amulet in your house and should help ease the possible occurrence of a family tension. You can also invite the image of Kuan Yin and this should also help ease family concerns. And to be able to create more opportunities for yourself, have the Vajrapani Ruel or an image of Kuan Kong worn as pendant.

The Tiger – born person should also realize that the best thing that happened to them this 2017 is the landing of the #8 Flying Star also known as the Wealth Star into their sector. This means money luck or financial luck should be within reach as long one creates an opportunity for it to come in. To further enhance this star you can invite as a gold or jade pendant the image of either Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Kuan Yin (also spelled and called as Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon), Sangharama Bodhisattva (also known as Qie Lan Pu Sa, Kuan Kong, Kuan Yu, Guan Gong, Guan Yu) or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva (gold only).

Unfortunately, the presence of the Three Killings in the sector might pose some problem. However, this is a star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula that is quite easy to deal with. All you have to do is carry the image of the Three Celestial Guardians, namely the Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) or the Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade or clear quartz.

The other cause for concern is the presence of the Natural Disaster Star, despite of it’s name the Natural Disaster Star can be a natural disaster or man – made. For this 2017, this may mean that you would be severely affected by natural disaster, but the way I read it and analyze it is more with the Man – made disaster. Like the Ox you might be greatly affected by the possibility of the man – made disaster that may happen on the 3rd or 4th quarter of the year. To protect yourself it is important to wear the Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade or clear quartz. And also a gold Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant. This should be done even before the entry of the Chinese New Year!

The Rabbit – born people is directly confronting the Tai Sui god of the year. Thus it is important to appease the Tai Sui (also spelled as Tai Suey or called as Grand Duke Jupiter) by wearing an image of the Piyao (Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) and or participate in a Tai Suey Ritual.

piyao-pendant

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

Health wise the Rabbits are getting an average reading but the 30, 54, and 90 – years – old Rabbit needs to take extra precaution. It is advisable for them to have the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha worn as a pendant or a Wu Lou (Wulou or Holy Gourd) also worn as pendant.

Wealth forecast for Rabbit – born people are generally good. They just have to be aggressive and use wisdom to create opportunities. However, because of the side affliction with the Robbery Star they also have the potential to be robbed off of this wealth luck. Special attentions are addressed to the 30 and 66 years – old Rabbit. So having either the Vajrapani Ruel or the Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade or clear quartz should definitely remedy this.

If you’re skipping all the forecast of the other signs, please make sure to check out the continuation at the end of the forecast for the PIG.


 

DRAGON

DRAGON chinese zodiac

General Traits:

While it won’t be a very easy year, your affinity with the ruling sign of the year, the Rooster, should give you some very positive chi to help you become successful. It will be a year wherein hardworking Dragons will be rewarded with some wonderful career and financial blessings. The keywords for Dragon – born people are perseverance and optimism.

As mentioned in the post entitled “2017 YEAR OF THE FIRE ROOSTER FENG SHUI FORECAST BASE ON THE BAZI CHART, FLYING STARS FORMULA, AND 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA: A BALANCED CHART BUT A CONFLICTING YEAR (PART 1)”, this is going to be a year that is going to be ruled by power, so as a Dragon, you naturally have this energy, however, some of you will have to really enhanced it. You can do this by wearing a Ru Yi (also spelled as Ruyi), which is called a Power Scepter. Remember, things will only not go as smooth as you want it to be if you are not able to take the reign of power within your hands. People must see that power in you. Another very powerful tool to help you have power is for you to wear an image of Sakyamuni Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha) in jade or gold. Wearing an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled and called Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa, Guan Sheng Di Jun) in jade.

You should also be constantly be able to plan ahead and try to foresee some problems that may arise.

Your energy or life chi might be a little low this year, but you have the power of the Lung Ta (Windhorse) with you and so this should help you along the way.windhorse-opt

One really wonderful news is that you have that the #9 Flying Star, which also known as the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star. This star is neither good nor bad, but it has the power to multiply your karma. It means, that if you plan good deeds, you multiply your good karma and it gives you a future full of prosperity. However, if you do bad deeds, it will multiply your bad karma. So I write this in a positive note because that assumption is Dragon – born people will want to plant good seeds. To help enhance this star one can wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

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

Another good news is that the 24 Mountain Stars brings you the Small Auspiciousness both direct and indirect thru the side sector. This is quite food because you will be blessed with small opportunities which you have the potential to make big. You should learn to be more aggressive. A timid Dragon will not go anywhere, so you have to be compassionately aggressive. Note the key words are COMPASSIONATELY AGGRESSIVE. One other way for you to tap into this power and at the same time resources is to wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant made of gold. According to Sakyamuni Buddha, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha is the source of power of the earth and so wearing His image should help you have the earth power right from it’s source. But at the same time the gold represents resources and it carries with it an intrinsic yang energy that we all need.

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Unfortunately, there is some bad news also brought about by the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. First, you have the Yearly Killing Star, which is a star that has the power to bring in a some problems and hindrance to blessings and success. Please note that this star resides in the sector of the Dragon, so its effect is quite strong. To help counter this, you should wear the Kalachakra pendant either in gold or jade or clear quartz.

Furthermore, you also have the Star of Three Killings (3 Killings), which can cause some trouble also. But it is quite easy to deal with this star. You can simply carry an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or again the Kalachakra (made of gold or jade or clear quartz) worn as a pendant.

The 17, 53, and 77 years old Dragon should be careful with their health or safety. You can wear either the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha.

The 29 and 65 – years –old Dragon will have the best financial luck. While the 53 – year – old Dragon will have moderate money luck. But then again it is there you will just have to exert a little effort to really be able to tap into it. And as mentioned above all Dragons will need to have power to tap into their wealth. Remember earth element controls power this year so wearing some gemstones should really help. Citrine should be the best because it is also a money stone. The 41 – year – old Dragon though has the tendency to lose some money this year. They will have to be really careful and it will be extremely good if they have the Vajrapani Ruel with them.

SNAKE

SNAKE chinese zodiac

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

While there are some minor blockage cause by a side affliction, this year is going to be quite a good year for people born under the sign of the Snake. It is not going to an immediate successful year, but rather it will be steady gradual way to success and blessings.

This should be a good year to start and planning for your long-term future. Remember, don’t expect something outrageously wonderful but rather learn to take pleasure in the small miracles that will often come to you in the Year of the Fire Rooster. These small miracles when harnessed properly may slowly bring you to new heights of success and wealth. The challenge is recognizing these small miracles.

One of the best news for the Snake – born people is that you have the #9 Flying Stars, which is also known as the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star. This star basically doubles your good karma and will help you have wonderful blessings in the future. But remember it also doubles your negative karma, so be good and think positive things only. To help enhance this star, one can wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

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

Sadly, you are in side conflict or you are side afflicted with the Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star or #5 Flying Star. This is only a side affliction a gold Kalachakra pendant should be able to help and protect you from this star. However, you may still opt to get the Five Element Pagoda if you so wish.

The wonderful news is that you also have the Small Auspiciousness star, while this stars brings only ‘small’ blessings by way of opportunities, when you learn to recognize these blessings you have the potential to make it really big. One other way for you to tap into this power and at the same time resources is to wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant made of gold. According to Sakyamuni Buddha, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha is the source of power of the earth and so wearing His image should help you have the earth power right from it’s source. But at the same time the gold represents resources and it carries with it an intrinsic yang energy that we all need.

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

The 52 and 76 – years – old Snake should be careful and take care of themselves because they are quite prone to illness and accidents. It will be wise for them to have either the Illness Suppression Amulet or the image of Medicine Buddha worn as pendant, or a Wu Lou (Wulou, Holy Gourd).

The 16, 40, and 76 – years – old Snakes will need the Vajrapani Ruelto help enhance their financial and wealth luck.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

HORSE

Horse chinese zodiac

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

While it is not as bad as what the Ox had to go through in 2016, it is still a rough time ahead for the Horse – born people. But the key element here is that they only have to see what a lot of Ox – born people had to go through in 2016 and the Horse should know that they would survive 2017. Learn from the Ox be resilient but importantly one has to prepare for 2017!

Horse are sometimes quite impatient, remember that, and remember that you will need patience. Patience, perseverance, determination and also faith in yourself and in the higher being be it Buddha, Jesus Christ, Allah!

But more than that you have to realize that you have to lie low ad avoid taking risk. Whether it is business risk, or risky physically avoid them. But remember, sometimes, although we don’t recognize this a lot, sometimes it is risk about our family members. Don’t be complacent.

Unlike the Ox last 2016, this 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster, the Horse is gifted with a good elemental luck, which is base on the year’s Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart and cross referenced with the Paht Chee Chart of the Horse. You, the Horse, have good life chi and spirit chi and so these two good things will help propagate you to moving forward. You can further enhance this with the combined powers of wearing the Lung Ta (Windhorse) and having the Vajrapani Ruel with you. You will need two to help counteract the tremendous negative energy around you.

The worst thing that affects you now is the presence of the Wu Wang or #5 Flying Star (Five Yellow Star) the most dreadful star amongst all the stars. Then you are also side afflicted by the #7 Flying Star known as the Violence Star.

Let’s discuss the Wu Wang first. The Wu Wang this year is stronger than usual. Maybe not as strong as it was in 2016 in the Northeast, but it is still quite stronger than usual. Regularly speaking the Wu Wang or the 5 – Yellow Star is naturally considered as a dreadful star because it has the power to make really good things turn to really bad things. I have seen people lose their business almost overnight because of this affliction. This 2016 alone when it affected the Northeast and the Ox and Tiger, I saw a young man who is seemingly healthy die without any warning. I know some people who just went out to unwind then went home dead because of accidents. I have seen some people who seem to be totally in control of their business who seem to have lost everything just because of as ingle mistake. I have a reader who for no apparent reason the chandelier just fell off the ceiling and hurt her. It is imperative that you protect yourself from this and you do this by wearing a gold 5 – Element Pagoda pendant (it has to be gold) and carry a Vajrapani Ruel for the added protection!

5element pagoda

Five Element Pagoda Pendant

DO NOT IGNORE THE WU WANG!

It is also imperative that you protect the South sector of your house and your office. If you have more than one house that is active (meaning where you stay every once in a while) you must protect all the South sector of all your active house. So aside from wearing the gold Five Element Pagoda pendant, you should also put the 5 – Element Pagoda (for display) in all your South sector.

In getting the Five Element Pagoda make sure also that it is something that can be opened (please see image below). Inside the top opening, instead of putting a soil, put a crystal. In that case you will still have use an earth element but with a very positive chi. Then at the bottom opening, you have to put three to five powerful amulets or mantras or sutras. I strongly recommend the following:

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

But this is where it gets a little more troublesome. Aside from being directly afflicted with the dreaded Wu Wang, you are also side afflicted by the #7 Flying Star known as the Violent Star that brings in a lot of misfortune and also harm to those who are afflicted. Because you are already naturally weakened because of the Wu Wang, you will be more susceptible than usual to the effects of this star. To manage this star, it is highly recommended for you to wear the Kalachakra pendant (made of gold or jade or clear quartz).

KALACHAKRA PENDANT

This is a Kalachakra Pendant designed by Lillian Too. She has included some mandala sands inside the pendant to make it more potent. I personally love this pendant and has one that is made of white gold. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

And as if it is not enough you are also in side conflict with the Tai Suey (Tai Sui / Grand Duke Jupiter). To appease the Tai Sui God of the year, it is important that you wear a Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie).

Piyaopendant1

Gold Piyao pendants worn as amulets are also very auspicious.

Having all these afflictions may prove to be a little troublesome and a lot of these have a natural element of the earth. So it is imperative for you to seek the help of the ruler of all earth, as described by Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni). It will prove to be beneficial if you can wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant. By wearing this it should strengthen you and give you power and also resources to give you the survival edge that you so need this 2017.

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Furthermore, it will be very helpful if all Horse – born people should put a Traditional Sutra Amulet (preferably The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva) inside their office and house. It is said that when you have the Traditional Sutra Amulet it is like the Buddha himself and his disciples, the Bodhisattvas, Arhats, Deities, etc. are also present.

earth-store-bodhisattva-sutra-traditional

This is a copy of the traditional SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA that my Guru Lama sent me.

Another unfortunate thing that afflicts the Horse – born people this 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster is that their health luck is not so great. So it is advisable for them to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, or an image of the Medicine Buddha. You can also chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKNADZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADXZA SAMUGATE SOHA. Please note that since you are heavily affected by several negative stars, the Wu Lou will not work for you.

Generally speaking money luck and financial luck doesn’t look really good for all the Horse – born people. But the 27 and 51 – years old Horse should take the most precaution. It might be good for all Horse to wear citrine, but for the 27 and 51 this is where the importance of wearing an Earth Store Bodhisattva gold pendant and having the Vajrapani Ruel will make the difference.

citRINEBEAD

This is a picture of a real citrine. Compare it with the above picture of the fake citrine. A real citrine will have inclusions.

I don’t normally talk about romance forecast, but there is some good news for single Horse – born people, and that is romance should be in the air this 2017 for them.

For married or attached Horses, this romantic energetic can either be good or bad. It can enhance your relationship with your partner, but it can also mean that there will be a third party interference. To enhance the love between you and your partner, put the Double Happiness Symbol on your headboard or at the bedside table. To protect yourself, please wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Another bit of good news for the Horse – born people is that you are in side with the Small Auspiciousness Star. Although you won’t feel its effect it doesn’t mean that there is no good coming out from it. You are so side afflicted with the negative stars you won’t feel it’s effect. But this star will act as some sort of a buffer.

My last words for the Horse – born people is that this year be the egg and not the potato in the boiling water. The potato softens but the egg hardens.

SHEEP

sheep chinese zodiac

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

The sheep is the second most afflicted Chinese Animal Zodiac. Last year it was the Tiger, the Horse this year has it better than the Ox, and this year the Sheep has it better than the Tiger.

This is going to be a challenging year for the people born under the sign of the Sheep. Base on the chart of the Bazi there should be some sort of success, but it will be an obstacle filled path to it. So having the Vajrapani Ruel is highly recommended to make this path smoother.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Your Lung – Ta or Windhorse is weak, and so wearing a Windhorse may prove to be helpful. A weak Lung Ta will prove to make your success a difficult thing to achieve. You can also have the Victory Banner either placed on your table or carried as a charm.

Your Life Chi is also quite weak and thus you may be more susceptible to problems and stress. It is highly suggested that you wear a gold pendant of the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) so that you will be given the extra boost with your natural earth element by the ruler of all earth energies. Furthermore, you will also need the power brought about by the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) and the gold’s metal element should provide the resources you need to help you traverse the path to the success that is present but blocked by a lot of negative energies.

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

One major concern is that you are afflicted by the #7 Flying Star known as the Violent Star. It is quite stronger than usual this year and so it is important that you get protected. Leaving yourself unprotected from this star may prove to be fatal both figuratively and literally. The best way to protect yourself from the effects of this star is to wear or carry with you the combined protective energies of the Vajrapani Ruel and the Kalachakra pendant (made in gold, jade or clear quartz but preferably in gold).

kalachakra pendant2

The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Unfortunately, you are also side afflicted from the Wu Wang or the #5 Flying Star (Five Yellow Star), and this star is also stronger than usual, and you are also naturally weakened state because of the #7 Flying Star, so it is highly advisable for you to wear the gold Five Element Pagoda pendant. It is also imperative for you to protect you South with the 5 – Element Pagoda figure.

In getting the Five Element Pagoda makes sure also that it is something that can be opened (please see image below). Inside the top opening, instead of putting a soil, put a crystal. In that case you will still have use an earth element but with a very positive chi. Then at the bottom opening, you have to put three to five powerful amulets or mantras or sutras. I strongly recommend the following:

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

Now for some good news, in your sector and on the side lands the Small Auspiciousness Star! This proves to be quite a blessing because it should help temper some of the negative effects of the negative stars that fall on your chart. And so with the protective amulets I mentioned and this two stars, you should not be affected as bad as you should be.

The health forecast for the sheep is at best average. But the ones who really needs to take precaution are the 38 and 62 – years – old Sheep. It will be advisable for them to wear either the image Medicine Buddha or the Illness Suppression Amulet.

Wealth luck is actually present for all the Sheep – born people, but it is highly deterred by the presence of the Wu Wang and the Violent Star. The most severely affected of this reverse wealth luck are the 26 and 50 – year – old Sheep. Thus it is highly advisable for them to wear an image of a Wealth God like Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa).kuan kong pendant

MONKEY

monkey chinese zodiac

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

Although also afflicted with some negative stars, the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster proves to be generally a good year for those born under the sign of the Monkey. Success is always within reach if some effort is put into it. For those who are employees, a chance of a recognition or promotion is likely to happen this year.

You have a weak life chi and so having the Vajrapani Ruel should be able to remedy this. The good news is that you a strong Spirit Chi and Windhorse or Lung – Ta, these two good energies should help propel you to success.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Unfortunately, you are afflicted with the #7 Flying Star also known as Violent Star, this star has the possibility of to make things bad and even put you in danger both figuratively and literally. This star has proven to be fatal in the past. So it is best to protect yourself. Sometimes this is also called a Betrayal Star because it also has that effect, and with the Monkey this seems to be the energy this year. You might be betrayed by a person you trust with regards to money. To protect yourself it is important for you to wear the gold Kalachakra pendant and carry with you the Vajrapani Ruel.

kalachakra gold pendant2

This is a Kalachakra pendant released by Lillian Too. I really love this pendant but find it too expensive. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Fortunately, you also have two Small Auspiciousness Star and these stars may bring in opportunities that may become big depending on how you harnessed them. And since power is the main energy of the year, it will be good for you to wear the image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) as a gold pendant. The Holy Bodhisattva will give you the power that you need so that you can totally harness the energies of the two Small Auspiciousness Star, and at the same the yang energy of the gold will help boost your life chi, to top it off the metal element of the gold will give you the resources that you need.

Fortunately or unfortunately you also have the Yi Duo. This star has the power to magnify your energies so if you remain upbeat or positive the energies it attracts are also good. But if you become negative it will also attract such kind of energies. Thus it is important to remain upbeat. To help enhanced only the positive energies, it is highly suggested for you to have the Traditional Sutra Amulet, and for this purpose The Diamond Sutra is highly suggested.

diamond-sutra2

This is a copy of the big and small THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA (traditional sutra amulet and sutra amulet) that my Guru Lama sent me. They are quite limited. I only have 10 of the big ones, and 7 of the small ones.

The 25, 61, and 85 – year – old Monkey should take extra precaution about their health and be wary of possible serious accidents. So it is important for them to carry or wear the Illness Suppression Amulet.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Wealth forecast is quite good for the Monkey in general. The 25 and 49 – year – old Monkey will enjoy a good wealth luck and financial luck. The 37 and 61 – year – old Monkey should take more precaution in their dealings. Thus it is going to be good if they either have the Surangama Mantra Amulet or an image of Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa).

ROOSTER

Like in the past years, I would like to clarify that you shouldn’t assume that if the ruling sign of the year is the same with of the your sign, it doesn’t really mean that it is good. It all depends on the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart) and the stars that goes into your sector.

This year the combinations of the elements, and of the stars both from the Flying Stars Formula and the 24 – Mountain Stars Formula makes it an average or mediocre year for the people born under the sign of the Rooster.

The truth is success luck should be quite good or better than average, however, the concern here is there may be some obstacle along the way that will dampen your inner chi and life chi. This may manifest in a slightly weaker physical state and weaker determination. And as I said this year who has the power would strive, thus it is highly advisable for you to wear the image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) as a gold pendant. Earth Store Bodhisattva should provide the power that you need and at the same time the metal element of the gold will provide resources for you along the way, and the yang energy of the gold should help boost your life chi.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Another damper of your good luck is the presence of the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argument Star. Some Feng Shui experts also call this as the Quarrelsome Star. This year you will find yourself more argumentative and short tempered. This star also has the ability to affect all kinds of relationships and thus making it shakier. Your partner will have to be more patient with you, but you yourself should realize that you are not your usual self this year. It is quite important for you to have the Surangama Mantra Amulet and also if possible the Ksitigarbha Fireball. If you have the image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (Earth Store Bodhisattva), His image will naturally have the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Remember that the Argument Star will bring more than just plain arguments. It may cause legal problems, and trust me you’re on the losing end if you go to court and you have this star.

Having either The Diamond Sutra or The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva as a Traditional Sutra Amulet should greatly offer protection to you.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

You are also facing the Three Killings, but carrying an image of the 3 – Celestial Guardian should take care of this.

3 Celestial

Admittedly, its difficult to find a ‘3-Celestial Guardian’ Pendant. A key chain will do. However, that’s also the reason why I designed my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT with the 3-Celestial Guardian at the back.

One good news is that you have the support of the Tai Sui God of the year. But it is important that you constantly appease the Tai Sui (Tai Suey / Grand Duke Jupiter), thus is important that you always carry or wear an image of the Pi Yao (Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie).

piyao pendant

Piyao Pendant

Health forecast is above average, but the 60 and 84 – year – old Rooster should take some precaution. Thus wearing the Illness Suppression Amulet or the image of Medicine Buddha or a Wu Lou (Wulou, Holy Gourd) should help.

Wealth and financial forecast for all the Rooster is good. Though the 36 and 60 – year – old Rooster should take some precaution in their business dealing. Having the Vajrapani Ruel should help protect you.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Another good news in that you have the side blessing of the Golden Deity star and this should provide you with help from the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods or Deities. Activate this by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Taoist God or Deity and wear them as a pendant or put the image inside your house. I strongly suggest the following images of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon) if you can have the Thousand Hand Kuan Yin Bodhisattva the better, Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa), Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala (Yellow Jambala), White Dzambhala (White Jambala), or The Monkey God – Sun Wu Kong.

DOG

DOG

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

While it cannot be said that it is bad year for the Dog, neither it can be said that it is good. A lot of the luck that comes your way should highly depend on you. But one thing for sure is that you are extremely blessed with the presence of the Golden Deity Star. This should provide you with help from the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods or Deities that may prove to be the best thing to happen. Activate this by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Taoist God or Deity and wear them as a pendant or put the image inside your house. I strongly suggest the following images of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon) if you can have the Thousand Hand Kuan Yin Bodhisattva the better, Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa), Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala (Yellow Jambala), White Dzambhala (White Jambala), or The Monkey God – Sun Wu Kong.

 

I know I mentioned a lot, but for this year, it is best to invite the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant because He will provide the power from the earth element and the resources from the metal element of the gold.

This is also a year where relationships will become better and might take a better part of your life over your career and financial success.

There is also a big possibility of change. A big change that may come your way that is indicated in your elemental forecast! In fact, the Bazi Chart of the year and the Bazi Chart of the Dog shows harmony, making the elemental forecast your strongest armor this year. Your Life Chi, Spirit Chi, Inner Chi and Lung – Ta are all either above average or strong. So this should help propel you to success and achieving the things that you desire for. Carrying the Vajrapani Ruel with you should help to further enhance these energies.

One bad news is that you are directly afflicted by the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as Illness Star but remember this is a star that doesn’t only causes illness but also accidents. This may affect you both physically and mentally and thus it is important for you to have the Illness Suppression Amulet and it is also equally for you to chant the mantra of Medicine Buddha (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA) 108x a day, everyday.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Another negative star that comes to you this year is the Yin Chia Xing and this might make the Illness Star stronger. To protect yourself from the negative effects of this star it is important you have the Traditional Sutra Amulet inside your bedroom. If you are married, you cannot have the Traditional Sutra Amulet in your bedroom, so better to put it in the room where you stays the most, next to your bedroom, and put it there in high clean place.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

While the 23, 47, and 83 – years – old Dogs needs to take the most precaution, I would like to stress that all Dogs are affected by the Illness Star (a star that causes accidents and illness) so again it is best for you to have the Illness Suppression Amulet and the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) because the (I repeat) Yin Chia Xing strengthens the effects of this star and the cure for this is TSA.

While superlative Wealth luck forecast is not the name of the game. Wealth luck is average or above average for most Dogs. This is especially true for the 35 and 59 – year – old Dogs. For the other age groups who want to enhance their wealth luck wearing the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva as a gold pendant and wearing citrine should really help.

If you’re skipping all the forecast of the other signs, please make sure to check out the continuation at the end of the forecast for the PIG.


 

PIG

PIG

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

This is quite a good year for people born under the sign of the Pig if we are to base it on its relation to the year’s Paht Chee Chart. There will be challenges ahead of you but you will be able to overcome them.

This is a year wherein you have the potential to shine and improve your current situation. The best news is that both your Spirit Chi and Life Chi are quite strong. Thus giving you an advantage already. However, your Lung – Ta or Windhorse is quite weak, thus it might create some hindrance, however, simply having the Vajrapani Ruel should address this concern or wearing the Windhorse pendant should also address this.

 

One of your major concern is that you have the #2 Flying Star also called as the Illness Star (a star that cause both illness and accidents), which is further enhanced by the presence of the Yin Chia Xing. You should addressed both these stars because this is your major stumbling block for the year, and thus it is very important for you to chant the mantra of the Medicine Buddha (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA) every day for 108x a day, and carry the Illness Suppression Amulet with you. Furthermore, to manage the Yin Chia Xing, it is important for you to have the Traditional Sutra Amulet in your bedroom. If you are married put the Traditional Sutra Amulet in your living room or the second most frequently used room.

Furthermore, you are also in side conflict with the Annual Conflict Star / Yearly Conflict Star a negative energy star that has the power to create a lot of problems and hindrance to your good luck. To protect yourself from this star please carry with you the Vajrapani Ruel or wear a gold Kalachakra pendant. You should also place a Traditional Sutra Amulet on the Northwest Sector of your house.

kalachakra gold pendant2

This is a Kalachakra pendant released by Lillian Too. I really love this pendant but find it too expensive. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

However, the extreme good news is that you have the Golden Deity Star, which is one of the best stars one can have in the Twenty-Four Mountain Star Formula. This should provide you with help from the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods or Deities that may prove to be the best thing to happen. Activate this by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Taoist God or Deity and wear them as a pendant or put the image inside your house. I strongly suggest the following images of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon) if you can have the Thousand Hand Kuan Yin Bodhisattva the better, Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa), Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala (Yellow Jambala), White Dzambhala (White Jambala), or The Monkey God – Sun Wu Kong.

 

I know I mentioned a lot, but for this year, it is best to invite the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant because He will provide the power from the earth element and the resources from the metal element of the gold.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Again all Pig – born people is prone to illness or accidents that may lead to long – term illness. All of you should have the Illness Suppression Amulet, but special mention must go to the 22, 46, and 52 – years – old Pig because they are the most severely affected by the effects of the said illness star.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Wealth forecast is generally good for all Pigs.


 

Remember that the forecast for each animal sign is done in a general manner. Sometime the time of birth and day of birth makes a lot of difference in terms of luck. Nevertheless, you have to realize that one has to really get protected if you have some of the negative stars, especially the #5 Flying Star (Wu Wang, 5 – Yellow Star) and the #7 Flying Star (Violent Star). In Feng Shui, protection and cure is given more importance than enhancement of the good star. So if you find yourself in a tight budget because effective cures and real cures are naturally quite pricey, remember the key is to protect first.

At this point, I also would like to add that it is also quite important for you to read the other posts on this series, because there are times that you have a good star but then your room or office or direction of your head when you sleep is in the bad sector, then it might severely affect your luck. For example, you might have #1 Flying Star (White Victory Star) but then you stay in the South, then the Wu Wang of the South might severely affect the good effect of the #1 Flying Star. Or for example you are Sheep that is affected by the #7 Flying Star (Violent Star) and side afflicted by the Wu Wang, but then you happen to stay in the Northwest who happens to have the Golden Deity star, then you can activate your Golden Deity star to help give you added protection from your bad star. You get what I’m trying to say? The worst case scenario is you are Sheep that is already affected by the #7 Flying Star and side afflicted by the Wu Wang, then you happen to stay in the South then you become even more afflicted by the Wu Wang. So you must cross reference the stars of your Chinese Animal Zodiac Sign (Chinese Horoscope) with the stars of the compass directions and also take note of the effects of the Bazi Chart of the year.

Lastly, aside from the Horse and Sheep who really needs to have the Five Element Pagoda and Gold Kalachakra, if you really cannot have all the recommended cures and enhancers, then at least have the following: GOLD EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT (stress is given on the gold, not copper, not silver, not brass, not stainless or jade) because aside from the effects of the image in giving us more power thru the earth element and resources thru its metal element the end of the year is also ruled by Hostile Energies and it is the image of the Earth Store Bodhisattva in gold that will help protect us from these hostile energy, VAJRAPANI RUEL, and to a certain degree Citrine.

I also would like to add that at the end of the day, especially those whose forecast is quite negative or grim. I would like to share with you a short story about my reader who became a friend – BM. BM is an Ox who as we know is affected by the extra strong Wu Wang of 2016. On top of that, her bedroom is in the Northeast. We still have one month to go, but BM seems to have surpassed 2016 still strong. Sure she had some bumpy times this 2016. But nothing that is so bad that would make her really cry. Why? She has all the cures that she needs but more importantly, in fact more important than the cures is that BM has planted the seeds of good deeds, of love, of compassion, of kindness a long time ago. And she continues to plant those seeds of goodness with expecting in return. And ironically because she wasn’t expecting anything, and she just kept on planting those seeds of goodness without any other intentions but simply to do good, she is reaping the fruits of those seeds now, and those seeds is what made her survive 2016. But more importantly, she knows the power of prayers, constant prayer and not when needed only. Her prayers protected her also. Even if her prayers are mostly for other people.

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.

ATTENTION to All People Born in the Year of the Ox and Tiger and to All Those Who Stays in the Northeast: The Monthly Flying Star #2 Flies into the Northeast and Combine Forces with the #5 Yellow Star!

Published Mayo 6, 2016 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog know by now that this might be a challenging ear for people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger as well as people whose office or bedroom is in the Northeast or whose houses or office has a front door facing the Northeast. This is because the #5 Flying Star also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star flows into the Northeast sector, which is also the sector that houses people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger as well as the middle son of each family. Everybody knows that this is the most dreaded star amongst all the flying stars and I suggest that if you are not familiar with the effects of this star, that you read all the other post about the 2016 annual forecast. This star together with the fact that the ruling star this year is the #2 Flying Star also known as the Illness Star, which is a star that brings in not only illness but accidents has put all the above mentioned people in a delicate energy this year. The above-mentioned people being affected by the Wu Wang have become more susceptible to the Illness Star also.

Some of you may know that other than the Annual Flying Stars, we also have the Monthly Flying Stars. The effects of these stars are basically the same but to a lesser degree. As the name implies, the Monthly Flying Stars, changes location every month, and depending on the star, this may temper or worsen your luck if combined with the Annual Flying Star.

Unfortunately, for the 4th Lunar Month (5th Western Month – May) the #2 Flying Star known as the Illness star goes into the Northeast sector. Thus affecting, I repeat, people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger, all middle sons, people whose office or bedroom are in the Northeast, or people whose main door of their house or office faces the Northeast!

Five Element Pagoda

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star. As long as it’s made of gold. Also you have to be careful that the pendant is designed properly because a wrong design might make things worse. There is a 5 – Element Pagoda pendant available in the market that looks like a missile. As of today, I know only of two reliable sources of the Five Element Pagoda. One is in Davao, which makes it by order and has very affordable price, and another one is that of Lillian Too.

All of the above mentioned people should take extra care to avoid accidents or if you fall ill no matter how trivial it may seem it is better to see the doctor right away. On top of that, you should be careful financially, because weirdly the sum of Flying Stars #5 and #2 has a weird effect on finances, so be careful with your money, because financial luck or wealth luck or money luck might take a hit also. The strong earth energy in this sector this month (from May 6, 2016 to June 5, 2016) should be suppressed with the metal element. You can do this by wearing more metal or jewelries like gold that has an added Yang energy. It will be so much better if you wear the Five Element Pagoda made in Gold as a pendant. That’s the only known and accepted cure by most Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants to this day.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

The Vajrapani Ruel will surely help, and so try to hold it on your receiving hand and chant OM VAJRAPANI HUM as often as you can this month. If possible, everyday from May 6, 2016 to June 5, 2016. If possible put it in a metal holder to add the metal energy to suppress the earth element brought in by Flying Star #5 and #2.

Wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, which also protects you from accidents. Or wear a Medicine Sutra Amulet, or an image of the Medicine Buddha made of gold. Furthermore, please chant the Medicine Buddha mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA or recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra everyday. You can download the sutra on this blog by clicking here.

As mentioned wear more jewelries made of metal especially gold. If these jewelries are fashioned with auspicious designs then so much the better.

For this month, if you are an Ox or Tiger or belong to any of the above mentioned affected sector, then it is better to avoid wearing too much crystals. Remember, crystals are predominantly earth element and so one should avoid it. If you really have to wear one, please make sure it’s the golden or silver or bronze rutilated quartz. And the Tanzanite should be fine as long as it’s not worn with other crystals.

Lastly, make donations or give food to the poor or to the stray dogs and cats and even to birds. Do this sincerely. Sincerity is key.

Illness Suppression Amulet2

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

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.
