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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Star, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balance Chart But A Conflicting Year (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 27, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, which happens to be the first part of this post – 2017 YEAR OF THE FIRE ROOSTER FENG SHUI FORECAST BASED ON THE BAZI, FLYING STAR, AND 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA: A BALANCED CHART BUT A CONFLICTING YEAR (PART 1) -I talked about what the year’s Bazi has in store for us. There I talked about how power will play an important role for all of us this year, and how it is quite likely that there is a manmade catastrophe that will happen on the 2nd half of the year. This is quite bothersome on my part because in the previous years, the analysis on the charts has been almost accurate. This started with the Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) to the Nepal Earthquake, and lastly to the financial instability that we are experiencing at the moment. And so if the analysis of the chart is correct again, what may happen may be something big and will be most likely in a political sense.

At any rate, allow me to share with you now the analysis base on the Flying Star Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula.2017-flying-star

THE CENTER HAS THE #1 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VICTORY STAR.

This means that the ruling star of the year is a good star or positive star or White Star. This is quite auspicious because this will in some way temper the challenging Bazi chart (Paht Chee chart) of the year, especially at the beginning to the year. As mentioned the beginning of the year may prove to be quite difficult for people who wants or have some projects to take off, but also towards the 2nd half of the year shows a lot of conflicts on the chart that it may affect a lot of us either personally and professionally and even financially. Although, technically the year proves to have a lot of money making opportunities but this may be hindered by year’s conflicting energies. For those who have a very good center in their houses or office will prove to be more successful. This also means the China might become more powerful this year.

Effects:

This star brings luck to your endeavors. It helps ensure your success. This year the White Victory Star also ensures that people whose bedroom or office is in the center will have wondrous victory luck.

Feng Shui Enhancers:

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

Note: That if the center of your house or office is a stockroom or washroom /comfort room/ rest room this is really bad and you should try to avoid using that room.

Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva)

 

THE EAST HAS THE #8 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE WEATLH STAR BUT IT ALSO HAS THE THREE KILLINGS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Enhancers:

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

 

24 Mountains:

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

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

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

3-celestial-guardians

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

 

 

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE #9 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERTIY STAR.

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Cure:

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

24 Mountain Stars:

However, the SouthEast has the Yearly Killing Star.

If your bedroom or office is in the SouthEast of the building or house, I suggest that you put a Prayer Wheel. And if the entrance of your house or office is in the Southeast or if the entrance is in the Southeast, I strongly suggest that you carry or wear a Prayer Wheel or wear an image of a Bodhisattva such as Kuan Yin Bodhisattva or Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold.

Nevertheless, you also have the Small Auspicious Star and this should prove to be a small luck that may make a difference by counteracting the negative effects of the Yearly Killing Star, especially if coupled with an image of Bodhisattva made of gold worn as a pendant.

Prayer wheel solar

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

 

 

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

Feng Shui practitioners all know that this is the most dreadful star amongst all the 4 bad flying stars. In fact, sometimes it doesn’t matter whether you’re lucky base on your Bazi chart, if you are afflicted with this you are going to face a very challenging year. This year, the Wu Wang is ever more dreadful because it lands on the South sector, maybe not as dreadful as when it landed in the Northeast on 2016 but still it is more dreadful than usual. That is because the South is ruled by the fire element, which produces earth thus making the Wu Wang, an earth element even stronger or powerful. So the effects may be doubled. If you stay (office, room) in this sector or if your house faces this sector or if you are born in the year of the Horse, it’s IMPERATIVE that you deal with this star. If you are on a budget and there is only one thing that you can deal with this year, deal with this. I cannot stress enough the importance of dealing with this.

Effects:

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

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

Feng Shui Cure:

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

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

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

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

The other one is through a private seller. I only have praises for the one sold online in Feng Shui Megamall of Lillian Too, but the only draw back is that it can be quite pricey (relatively speaking) and with the tax and shipping fee involved, it’s price is almost doubled.

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

But I’m glad that a reader from Davao has since then provided me a 5 – Element Pagoda and Kalachakra with superb craftsmanship, unlike my previous jeweler, she has also proven to be quite professional and trustworthy. Her Five Element Pagoda pendant and Kalachakra pendant both fashioned in gold which is quite important for the purpose of protection is as good as that of the ones found online but with half or only 1/5 (for the Kalachakra) of the price.

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

It is also important to get these cures early not only because they may be quite difficult to find but also because the energies of 2017 can be felt as early as January of the western calendar.

24 Mountain Stars:

The good news for the people who stays in the South is that unlike last year with the Northeast, this year the South is flank by two small auspicious stars. If you are aptly protected from the strong Five Yellow Star, these small auspicious stars should prove to be quite useful. For people who stays in the South and for Horse born people, it is important to protect yourself from the Wu Wang then enhance this star by wearing the semi – precious stone citrine and victory banner or an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva pendant made in gold.

 

 

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VIOLENT STAR WHICH IS THE 2ND MOST DREADED STAR IN THE FLYING STAR FORMULA.

Effects:

The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. Next to the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang, this is one of the most dreaded stars. This year people born in the sign of the Sheep and Monkey are affected by this star and those who stays in the Southwest are also side afflicted with the dreaded #5 Flying Star also known as Five Yellow Star. But more on that on the succeeding post. This year because of it’s side affliction with the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang, the Violent Star is made stronger also.

Feng Shui Cure:

Since this is one most the more serious star that we have to take care of, it’s important that people whose houses are facing Southwest or simply staying in the Southwest side of their house or office should have the following: Vajrapani Ruel and 5 – Element Pagoda or Kalachakra.

24 Mountain Stars:

While the Southwest is also affected by the Small Auspicious Star, it is also unfortunately side afflicted by the Wu Wang (of the Flying Star Formula) and the Yi Duo. To help counter the negative effect of this star, it is important that you put a Surangama Mantra Amulet or a Traditional Sutra Amulet on this sector. For those who stay on the Southwest, it is important for you to protect yourself from the Yi Duo by wearing a Surangama Mantra Amulet.

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.

 

 

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Cure:

The best cures for this star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help. These are what I normally recommend. But lately I noticed that another great cure for this are the Surangama Mantra Amulet and Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant. However, for this year, it is highly recommended because of the Fire Element of the Rooster, which resides in the West, might make this star a little stronger than usual. So instead of simply using the Ksitigarbha Fireball, it might help to have Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva) himself. You can place His image on this sector or for those people whose office or bedroom is in this sector should wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva pendant made of gold.

24 Mountain Stars:

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

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

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

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

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year 2017, Tai Sui of the year is General Tang Jie (唐杰). However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.tai-sui-2017-ofss

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

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

 

 

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

Effects:

As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. This star also causes some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. Everybody who stays in this sector is affected.

Feng Shui Cure:

To counter the effects of this star, it is important that one constantly recite the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA). Secondary cure for this displaying a Wu Lou (also spelled as Wulou) or Holy Gourd and putting it at the Northwest of the house.

Last year my Guru Lama has come up with a special Illness Suppression Amulet and that is he has combined three of the most powerful anti – illness and anti – accident mantras, which he has consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha and included some powerful Dharma Pills.

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

The mantras that are included in this Illness Suppression Amulet are the Medicine Buddha Mantra printed in a blue paper, Namgyalma Mantra and White Umbrella Goddess Mantra printed on a white paper, and Amitayus Mantra printed on a red paper. Aside from wearing this, this should definitely be in the Northwest sector of the house or office. For this year, my Guru Lama has made an enhanced ‘version’ of this amulet. I still don’t have it but will see it soon.

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.

 

24 Mountain Stars:

The Illness Star in this sector is further strengthened by the Yin Chia Xing star of the 24 Mountain Stars; this is a star that will definitely make the Illness Star stronger. To help counter this star, it is quite important for one to have the Traditional Sutra Amulet on this sector. If you stay in this sector also it is important to have a Traditional Sutra Amulet (small size) in your body or a Vajrapani Ruel or a Surangama Mantra Amulet.

The good news is that this sector also has two Golden Deity stars of the 24 Mountain Stars formula. This is one of the most auspicious stars one can have, and it should help to counter the effects of the Illness Star and the Yin Chia Xing. To activate this star, it will be very well to invite a golden image of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva or a Deity or Taoist God. However, my suggestion is since Earth Store Bodhisattva is an image that plays a very important role this year.

 

THE NORTH HAS THE #6 FLYING ALSO KNOWN AS THE HEAVEN’S BLESSING AND MENTOR STAR.

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Enhancers:

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

The #6 Flying Star is a star ruled by the metal element and North is ruled by the water element. If it is the other way around their relationship would have been on a productive cycle, however, at this state they are on a exhaustive cycle, so it means it may weaken this star, so it is quite important to enhance this star by putting any of the above recommendations that is made of metal.

24 MOUNTAIN STAR:

The good news this sector is further strengthened by the Big Auspicious star. However, there is also the Annual Conflict star, which may dampen the effects of the good star. You can remedy this by placing a Vajrapani Ruel or a Traditional Sutra Amulet on this sector of the house or building or bedroom or office.

 

 

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

If the Northeast was the worst sector in 2016, it is now one of the best sectors despite of a presence of a strong negative star from the 24 Mountain Star formulas.

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Enhancer:

For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed or ask your partner to wear a gold image of Kuan Kong. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only. For those single people hoping to find love, you can also wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet or gold Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (also called or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin) pendant.

24 MOUNTAIN STARS:

While this sector also has the Robbery star, a star that has to be taken seriously because robbery here doesn’t only mean physical / material robbery but also as well as ideas, businesses, or more importantly the greater possibility of having a third party for those who are married or attached who stays in this sector. For those who are in business this may means losing some business opportunities. Nevertheless, it is quite to remedy this, one simply has to put a Vajrapani Ruel or a Traditional Sutra Amulet in the said sector of their office and/or house.

But the good news is that this sector also houses two very auspicious stars, and that is the Big Auspicious star that will surely bring a lot of good things, but also it has the Earth Seal, and this star is one of the most besotted star. For this year, where one needs strong power to really be able to tap into once wealth luck the Earth Seal will show that it gives you a boost of power. However, like in any other years where the Earth Seal appears, this is a star that needs to be activated. One can do this by putting more crystals, especially Citrine on this sector. Also one very powerful way, if this sector is not a bedroom or bathroom or a toilet, putting an image of the Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) made of metal is a very powerful image to use to boost the full potential of the Earth Seal.

Chant – A – Mantra (7) & Recite – A – Sutra (8): Additional Protection from the Double Illness Star and Double Wu Wang in the Northeast!

Published Nobyembre 4, 2016 by jptan2012

Any Feng Shui enthusiasts and Feng Shui students would have known by now that the month of November (starting on November 7, 2016 – December 6, 2016) a lot of us will have to be very careful and be ready for double negative energies brought about by the combination of the Annual Flying Stars and Monthly Flying Stars.

Note: To understand this post better you can read the first two posts about it. 1. Double Wu Wang Whammy for People Born in the Year of the Ox and Tiger this November. / 2. Is the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

First, the most dreadful star (#5 Flying Star / Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / 5 – Yellow Star) is doubled in the Northeast this month, which means people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger, Middle Sons (regardless of age, regardless whether they are married or single and whether they still live with their parents or not), and people staying in the Northeast (bedroom, office or even if your house is in the Northeast of the village or subdivision) and people whose house or office door faces the Northeast are all affected by the Double Wu Wang. This is the most dreadful star in the Flying Star formula, and all Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants caution us about this, and having it doubles this year in the Northeast brings tremendous stress to those who have to deal with it. Those who have to deal with it are the people I mentioned above.

But at the same time, the #2 Flying Star, which is known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only grave illness but also serious accidents that may lead to long term illness or death is also doubled this month. We are all susceptible to this, but people who are affected by the Wu Wang, as mentioned above, are doubly affected. As a precaution, it is highly advisable for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet if you have it.

For those who are affected by the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast can wear the Vajrapani Ruel and a gold 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) pendant, and a gold Kalachakra pendant. Carrying or surrounding yourself with Traditional Sutra Amulets like THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA will also greatly help and offer much protection.

In my earlier post about the same topic, I also said that this is the time for one to rely and have faith on prayers. For Catholics you can do your novenas or pray your rosary. For Christians and Muslims you can pray to your God and have faith in Him. For Taoist, you can ask special protection Fu from your Taoist priest. For Buddhist and those who would be willing to practice how Buddhist protect themselves now can do the following suggestions found below.

Go to the temple and light incense everyday.

Go to the temple and bow to the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas everyday.

Donate to the poor or who are in need with utmost sincerity.

Chant the following mantras (minimum) 108x a day everyday:

  • Mantra of Amitabha Buddha: OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  • Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  • Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion Guan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara (Chundi Avalokitesvara): NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA
  • Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

You can also Recite the following Sutras as often as you can:

The Forecasted Financial Crisis of 2016 And What We Can Do About It!

Published Oktubre 3, 2016 by jptan2012

Late last year I made some predictions base on the analysis of the year’s (2016) Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart. One of the more significant predictions that I had was when I said that we might experience some financial crisis or the start of a financial crisis. The truth, I made another prediction but I would rather not discuss the other one because of it may be deemed controversial but I did write about it.

Anyway, as I said I mentioned in that forecasted financial crisis seems to be happening now. Stock is it at lowest in 7 years, with the longest streak of fall in recent history. On top of that, foreign investors or businesses are already pulling out with the President of Europe Chamber of Commerce saying that they are already pulling out of the country. Add to that that for the longest time the dollar has hit above Php 49.00 again.

Is there a reason for worry? As of now, I don’t think we should go on a panic, it definitely won’t do anything. Let’s still put our hope and trust on the government and believe that they know what they are doing. Nevertheless, it is wise to exercise prudence in spending money and also in making investments.

Feng Shui wise wearing the 9 – Eyed DZI Bead with Citrine and Pi Xiu (Pi Yao, Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) is essential. Also, displaying the 3 – Legged Toads might help.

To help deflect or minimize the effect of energy of financial problem, it is highly recommended that you carry the following Buddhist items or symbols or images that serves as an amulet – Vajrapani Ruel and / or the Kalachakra Pendant made in Gold. To gain more wisdom in managing things, especially financial matters, and to put you ahead of possible hostile competitors, wearing the image of Sakyamuni Buddha (also spelled as Shakyamuni Buddha) is highly recommended.

Chanting the following mantras are also highly recommended:

  • OM MUNI MUNI MAHA MUNI YE SOHA
  • OM MANI PADME HUM
  • OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Furthermore, wearing the image of Bodhisattva Sangharama or other Wealth Deity Yellow Dzambhala is also highly recommended. But for this type of financial crisis, I believe one of the most effective wealth enhancing deity is Ji Gong, though not very famous wealth god called Ji Gong or Che Kong (濟公). Also spelled as Ji Kong or Che Gong. which I have written about a few years ago. You can click here to know more about him.

At the end of the day, I rally that we support the positive things that the government is doing. Realize that the government’s success should be our success also. However, we should also exercise wisdom, after all, the government is run by people who like us may be prone to errors also. So let us support but we should also let our voice be heard if you think the government is pursuing the wrong path. But in voicing our belief, first we must truly seek to understand where the government is coming from and never ever be divisive. We can have different opinions but remain in harmony.

And for a more universal cure to this concern, let us always light an incense and recite the following sutras for our government and for our world:

Today’s Lunar Eclipse Affecting the Harvest Moon Signifies Double Bad Luck!

Published Setyembre 16, 2016 by jptan2012

I’m on the road today stuck in traffic reviewing some messages when I remembered that there is a lunar eclipse later. Then I remembered that yesterday was just the Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival, which means we still have the Harvest Moon today, and with eclipse happening which will last 4 hours, signifies something quite not nice.

I decided to write this while stuck in traffic and hope to be able to upload this using a pocket Wi-Fi. Hope it works.

If you were familiar with Feng Shui you would know that eclipse often affects the good chi of the universe, this usually signifies some sort of worldwide bad luck happenings. It can be war, weird weather occurrence, world market disturbance, etc. On top of that, if we are out when an eclipse happens, we will also get affected on a personal level. For those who are experiencing some bad luck, it is very important to avoid being out of the house during a lunar eclipse or even a solar eclipse. You should even avoid opening your windows and look at the eclipse.

The effect of the lunar eclipse happening later is worse than an ordinary eclipse. Why? Because it happens right after the Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival and as you might have read, Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival is actually a celebration of good harvest. Feng Shui experts have also taken this as an opportunity to ‘cleanse’ or renew oneself from the negative chi of the previous month, which is the Hungry Ghost Month.

For an eclipse to happen right after the Mid – Autumn Festival signifies that there might be some be some crisis or calamity that is about to happen soon. On a personal level the effect of this eclipse will be most likely has something to do with financial luck or wealth luck or bad luck. But of course, if you already have a problem and you are out of the house while the eclipse is happening, then chances that problem will intensify, regardless whether the problem is financial or personal.

Furthermore, although technically not covered by Feng Shui or Eastern Astrology, base on Western Astrology we are still under the Mercury Retrograde, so this Mercury Retrograde should further impede some problems and add to the negative effects of a lunar eclipse happening on a harvest moon. This also signifies that it may affect relationship problems other than those what was mentioned above.

The best things to do is stay indoor and close your windows and doors. Whether indoor or if you can’t avoid being outdoor while the eclipse is happening, it is best to totally protected. For this, I would strongly suggest for you to wear the Kalachakra symbol made of gold or jade, Vajrapani Ruel, or Surangama Mantra Amulet. If you don’t have these, you can wear the symbolic script of the manta of Buddha Amitabha, or Bodhisattva Vajrapani, or the Deity Kalachakra.

Chant – A – Mantra (3d): Daily Mantras to Chant – Health, Wealth, Liberty from Negativities!

Published Hulyo 14, 2016 by jptan2012

Yes! I chant a lot of mantras everyday. And while at first it might seem quite tedious once you get the hang of it, it will be quite easy to chant even if there are a lot of mantras to chant. But don’t get me wrong, when I say quite easy it will still take you some time, and it is perfectly worth it to invest some time everyday because the blessings that we receive simply by chanting mantras is quite enormous. It is more powerful when one chants it under deep meditation, at a level where you are almost unaware of your surroundings. However, needless to say, mantras are powerful and depending on your faith simply uttering it a few times is bound to give you some blessings. How much more if you chant it 108x everyday!

Aside from the mantras of the 3 Main Buddhas (Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, and Medicine Buddha) and the 4 Main Bodhisattvas (Bodhisattva Kuan Yin, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, Bodhisattva Samantabhadra, and Bodhisattva Majushri) and the Protector, Business and Career, Wealth Bodhisattvas (Bodhisattva Sangharama and Bodhisattva Vajrapani), I also chant the following mantras:

  1. NAMO DANG LIE XIA XIENG MI LO CHUN FO and OM MAITRI MAHĀ MAITRI MAITREYA SOHA (Mantra of the Future Buddha, Bodhisattva Maitreya) – Chanting the mantra of the Future Buddha, Maitreya Bodhisattva, who is also known as the Happy Buddha would shower with blessings of health and wealth. To understand him better you can read my post about him entitled: THE HAPPY FAT BUDDHA: A REPRESENTATION OF MAITREYA BUDDHA’S BLESSINGS.
  2. OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA (Mantra of the Swift Liberator, Goddess Tara) – Chanting the mantra of Goddess Tara is really good specially when you encounter a lot of problems, because she is considered as the Swift Liberator because she liberates us from sufferings. To understand more about Goddess Tara please read the following articles: GODDESS TARA: THE MOTHER OF SWIFT LIBERATION and PAYING HOMAGE TO GODDESS TARA.Goddess Tara
  3. OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA (Mantra of the Buddhist Wealth Deity, Yellow Dzambhala) – Chanting the mantra of Yellow Dzambhala will shower us with enormous wealth blessings. To understand Yellow Dzambhala, you can check out the article I have written about him entitled, INCREASE YOUR WEALTH BY PAYING HOMAGE TO YELLOW DZAMBHALA!

Sentient Objects (2): What To Do If A Spirit or Otherwordly Entity Inhabits Your Jewelry?

Published Disyembre 9, 2015 by jptan2012

jewerlyIn my preceding post called – SENTIENT OBJECTS: JEWELRIES OR OTHER OBJECTS INHABITED BY SPIRITS! I talked about Sentient Objects. Today, allow me to share with you as to what you can do if you suspect your jewelry or other things such as dolls is inhabited by a spirit or otherworldly entity.

But first allow me to explain that although more often than not it is only the hungry ghost or otherworldly entities that will inhabit or possess an object thus making it a Sentient Object, good entities are also known to do this. In Taoism, Taoist Gods or Deities that are properly blessed are all considered Sentient Objects, it is believe that once an object is blessed, a portion of the consciousness of that particular deity or god will inhabit the said image. Thus it should be treated with reverence because it is considered a Sentient Object carrying the essence or energy or a portion of the Taoist Deity or Taoist God.

In Buddhism, this is more of controversy and there are some arguments about this. All schools and lineage of Buddhism believes that simply making an image of Buddha or a Bodhisattva or a Deity makes the image holy because it will definitely carry the energy of the said Buddha, Bodhisattva, or Deity. However, some believes school and lineages believes that having the images blessed will make it holier. However, some schools and lineages like the Pure Land Buddhism (Pureland Buddhism) believes that blessing the said images will make it a Sentient Object in a sense that the said image will start to carry some energy of the Buddha, Bodhisattva or Deity. In Tibetan Buddhism this subject is a little bit unclear, but I can surmise that it is accepted concept because Tibetan Buddhist believes that a certain item consecrated under the energies of a certain Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity should be treated like it’s the Buddha, Bodhisattva or Deity itself. Although, the claim that it becomes a sentient object is not explicit, it always said that the item, which after consecration has become an amulet, is considered as an extension of the Buddha, Bodhisattva or Deity. This is especially true with the Kalachakra and Vajrapani Ruel. With the Surangama Mantra Amulet, it is a little different because a consecrated (The term I used in writing about the Surangama Mantra Amulet is blessed, but really it should be consecrated not just blessed. I will discuss the difference in a future post.) Surangama Mantra Amulet is believed to attract Heavenly Beings that has an affinity with the wearer. But nevertheless, as mentioned the Pure Land Buddhist believes that a blessed or consecrated image becomes a Sentient Object.

Going back to the topic. Positive Sentient Objects, aside from the Taoist and Buddhist images mentioned, although possible are very rare. I would say sentient objects, with the exception of those that were consecrated on a temple, are 95% that of a hungry ghost or otherworldly entity of negative origin.

It will difficult to identify a sentient object unless you’re sensitive to these kinds of energies. However, some signs will be if you’re house is haunted and the energies are stronger at the area where you put your jewelries. You notice that some bad things, or bad emotions, or a fight happens whenever you wear a particular jewelry, especially if they are made up of diamonds, pearls, rubies, sapphires, or emeralds set in gold. But let me issue a caveat now and clarify that with the exception of pearls and diamonds, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get these stones. You can continue to use ruby, sapphire, emerald, and gold because the benefit from wearing them far outweighs the possibility of it becoming a sentient object.

Pearl_Oysters

To harvest the pearl, you have to kill the oyster, an shellfish considered to have consciousness.

I said with the exception of pearls and diamonds. Why? Because most diamonds around 85% to 90% of it are blood diamond, meaning it’s a diamond mined with total suffering and hardship maybe even death of those who mined them. In the case of the pearls, pearls are animate beings. Being the are living things that has consciousness, so in effect, when you get a pearl you either kills the shellfish (oyster)or you hurt them, and carrying a pearl is technically dead animate being so the energy is yin. These two, the diamond and pearl, by virtue of it’s history carries some yin psychic impression, and while they are yang energy objects (especially the diamond) with their yin psychic impression, hungry ghosts and otherworldly entities will natural be attracted to them and may inhabit them.

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.

If you suspect that your jewelries have turned into a sentient object, I suggest you bring them to a Taoist Priest or a Buddhist Monk who are familiar with exorcising these objects. Depending on how strong the energy is it might take from a month to 3 months to fully cleanse these sentient objects of the negative energy or spirit or entity.

To prevent them from becoming a sentient object you can put a powerful amulet amongst your jewelry. The Vajrapani Ruel or Surangama Mantra Amulet will do. However, if they are already possessed with spirits or entities, they really have to be cleansed by a Taoist Priest or a Buddhist Monk.

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.

Continue wearing a jewelry that has turned into a sentient object is bad because you might imbibe (permanently) the energy and personality of the spirit or entity. Furthermore, it may bring in some bad luck in your life and worst it might affect your relationships!
