The dreaded Hungry Ghost Month is again just around the corner. The Hungry Ghost Month happens every 7th Lunar Month of the year, and for 2018 it starts on August 11, peaks on August 25, and ends on Sept. 9.

I have written about the Ghost Month a number of times already, and there is a section or a category fully dedicated to everything about the Ghost Month. I will include the link below. You can read also the earlier posts about the Hungry Ghost Month that I have written so that you can understand it better. However, allow me to still briefly talk about it here.

It is said that every year on the first day of the seventh lunar month, which is the start of the Hungry Ghost Month or sometimes simply known as the Ghost month, the gates of hell are opened, and the hungry ghosts are allowed for freely roam our world. It is also said the negative spirits are also more powerful during this time. There are many taboos during the Ghost Month and I have written about them in the past posts. However, I also would like to add that it is extremely bad to wear clothes with your name on them, especially in the evening. Sometimes, for those who wear uniform this is totally unavoidable so it is better to carry with you a powerful protective amulet like an image of Chung Kwei or a Vajrapani Ruel or a gold Kalachakra pendant.

For example, do not wear the clothes with your name, do not pat other people on the shoulder, do not whistle, children and senior citizens should not go out at night. Try to avoid whistling because you might get the attention of the spirits and avoid tapping a person a shoulder.

This year, while the Hungry Ghost Month is not especially stronger, its effects is still going to be quite bad. Late last year, I talked about how there is an absence of money this year, and especially here in the Philippines, how there is a possibility of a financial challenges. Modesty aside, my forecast on the continuing weakening of the peso has happened and continues to happen. No matter what other people say, all you have to do is do your own research with unbiased sources and you will see that inflation is happening in the region, the worst effect is happening in the Philippines because here it is further aggravated by factors that I have mentioned before and therefore will no longer talk about now. Needless to say, all of us has to be careful financially. To protect yourself from this aside from wearing the Chung Kwei pendant made of either gold, black jade, or black tourmaline or genuine black obsidian, you should also carry with you a powerful wealth amulet like the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and/or the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.

 

Aside from the effects of the Hungry Ghost Month on money, wealth, or financial luck or situation of a country. The Hungry Ghost Month will also affect the auspicious stars of 6 of the animal signs who were supposed to have good stars this 7th lunar month. Foremost of these are the Rat, Dragon, and Snake.

People born under the sign of the Ox, Monkey, Horse, Tiger, Sheep should take extra precaution. Make sure you are all protected. People born under the sign of the Ox should be careful with their health and avoid traveling and going to Yin places like cemetery and hospitals. Always wear one of the following: VAJRAPANI RUEL, ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET, or SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

For this month, it might be good to wear a ruby set in yellow gold to help deflect negative energies, especially if you work in a yin place like a hospital, or if you live in a house that is haunted.

What extremely bothers me and the legit and most prominent Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants of Hong Kong and Singapore is the recent longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century. As you all know nothing good comes out of an eclipse. The longer the eclipse the worse the is the effect on the world and on the people who were expose to it (if you’re out during the time of eclipse). A lot of people were raving about the fact that we are experiencing the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century, but the truth is it is scary, especially with it happening just a few weeks before the Hungry Ghost Month!

One possible effect of this Lunar Eclipse is that it will further aggravate the financial problems experienced or about to be experienced by people. For those whose septic tank is inside their house or right in front of their doors or house, this means that the bad effects of having the septic tank inside your house or right outside your house, couple with the effects of the Hungry Ghost Month and its strengthening due to the lunar eclipse will be quite bad. I suggest for you to contact your Feng Shui consultant to remedy this ASAP.

The First Two Eclipses of 2018: What Does It Mean and How Should We Prepare for It?

Published Enero 8, 2018 by jptan2012

One thing I hate about people who give predictions is that a lot of them are doomsayers! And needless to say lately I’m starting to feel that I’m a doomsayer myself. I know I tried to keep an upbeat mood and despite of the fact that I tried to put in a semblance of balance in my forecast, I can’t help how people focused on the negative financial/wealth/money outlook of 2018 lunar year, which is the Year of the Earth Dog!

Nevertheless, I have stated what are the cures that one needs for the coming year so that it will lessen the impact of these negative chi or energies.

However, I have yet again to share some other not so good news. Just before the Spring Festival comes in on Feb. 4, 2018 we will experience a total lunar eclipse on January 31, 2018. Now moon is actually a sign of spring and not the sun. And as I have said in my forecast, this year we won’t have spring, because Chinese New Year (CNY) or Lunar New Year is coming in on Feb, 16, 2018. But the blue moon before the (CNY) should have served as a good sign for having the sign of spring. It should have bring some sort of small positive energy, but then the total lunar eclipse is a sign that whatever positive chi we can get from what small amount of “spring” we can get will be further blocked by this total lunar eclipse. An eclipse is yin covering yang energy.

And as if this is not enough, on the eve of Chinese New Year, we will have a partial solar eclipse. Again, this yin covering yang. And as believers of Feng Shui knows this is not a good sign, while the chart is balance with 2 pillars of Yin and 2 pillars of Yang, the two additional Yin events shows that this is going to be a challenging year ahead.

A lot of the effects, because of the missing metal element and the strong presence of the wood element in the year’s Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart, indicates that it will be towards peace and order, and financial. On a personal level, aside from financial, it would still be about power struggles and relationship.

During the time of the actual eclipse, whether you can see it from where you are or not, you should go indoors and turn all the lights on. Make sure you are also protected with either the Vajrapani Ruel and/or the Kalachakra gold pendant.

If you can’t help it but to be outside of the house or office. Make sure you have either the Vajrapani Ruel or the Kalachakra gold pendant with the Special Gold Piyao. The Special Gold Piyao being a highly yang item because of the Piyao, and the gold which is further enhanced with pujas, mantras, and sutras!

Protect Yourself from the Combined Effects of the Total Solar Eclipse and the Hungry Ghost Month!

Published Agosto 21, 2017 by jptan2012

Today is the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month for 2017 and also today we will have one of the ‘greatest’ total solar eclipse, which ironically speaking a lot of people are excited to see.

While like all Hungry Ghost Month we will all have to take extra careful and precaution. I have discussed this several times every year, so I will not go into detail about it, but if you are new to Feng Shui or just have started reading this blog, please do check out the links at the end of this article to know more about the Hungry Ghost Month (aka Ghost Month) and the Hungry Ghost Festival (aka Ghost Festival).

There are years that the negative effects of the Ghost Month are particularly stronger, superficially, base on the Flying Stars Formula of the year, this year the case is not like of that last year, but because of the Total Solar Eclipse happening today, the statement that this year’s Hungry Ghost Month is not particularly stronger is no longer true.

Today a Total Solar Eclipse will happen. It will more visibly seen in some parts of America, but as I have said in previous posts, when a Total Solar Eclipse happens, or when an eclipse happens it really doesn’t matter whether you see the effect of it on your country or not, it just doesn’t matter, when an eclipse happens it affects the world and it affects every country, and it affects all of us if we haven’t taken the time out to protect ourselves.

First, during the eclipse, and the time varies from one continent to another (so check it out on Google) one has stay inside. Go into your house or office even if it’s evening in your country, it is better to stay indoor. Make sure you wear your protective amulets, for this one I particularly more assured with the Vajrapani Ruel or gold Kalachakra pendant, or a gold pendant image of the Bodhisattva of Compassion – Kuan Yin (also spelled or called Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Goddess of Mercy, Buddha of Compassion), or a gold pendant image of Amitabha Buddha. If you don’t have any of these, chanting mantras should also help. You can chant the following mantras repeatedly until after the total solar eclipse:

Mantra of Buddha Amitabha: OM AMI DEWA HRIH

Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

The Protection Mantra of Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUMS HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Chant all the mantra 108x each one after the other; repeat the process until the total solar eclipse has ended.

A number of Feng Shui experts believe that the Total Solar Eclipse happening on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month is either a precursor to bad things happening worldwide or with several countries or it maybe enhancing to the things that are already happening. By enhancing it refers to enhancing the negative things.

Furthermore, on a more personal level it may signify financial loss or health and safety issues during the Hungry Ghost Month. And regular readers of this blog know that my stand is always better being safe than sorry.

The 2017 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH (2017 GHOST MONTH) starts on August 22, 2017 and ends on September 19, 2017. The 2017 HUNGRY GHOST FESTIVAL (2017 GHOST FESTIVAL) is on September 5, 2017.

A Special Amulet From Within for the Hungry Ghost Month: A Reader Shares Her Thought on How She Was Protected from One of the Worst Hungry Ghost Month We Ever Had.

Published Agosto 15, 2017 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I talked about BM and how she was asking me about this year’s Hungry Ghost Month. As I said in that post, I made some mistake in saying that this year’s Hungry Ghost Month is not any worse than an ordinary Hungry Ghost Month, although like any other Ghost Month one has to be very careful and cautious with one’s dealings. And so when I found out about the Lunar Eclipse and the Total Solar Eclipse that is happening on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month which is on August 21, I have to call her and rectify what I initially told her. But instead of making it a dreadful conversation as to what are the bad things that may happen, BM said something that is full of wisdom.

You see, last year people born in the year of the Ox have some terrible luck. We had one of the strongest #5 Flying Star (also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star) and it landed on the sector of the Ox! Furthermore, last year’s Hungry Ghost Month was quite intense for people born in the year of the Ox. In the strictest sense of the word was bad year for the Ox, and very challenging one. BM was born in the year of the Ox and she survived last year with panache!!!!

What did she do? Obviously she armed herself with all the necessary amulets like the Five Element Pagoda gold pendant, the gold Kalachakra pendant, Vajrapani Ruel, etc., You name it she has it, but what is most important is that she armed herself with what I would like to call the AMULET FROM WITHIN!

What is this AMULET FROM WITHIN? It is quite simple really; basically she sincerely armed herself with goodness, compassion, kindness, and love. Obviously, this is not something that she does only for the sake of the Hungry Ghost Month or for counter acting the effects of bad luck. But this is something that stems from within her and sincere is an understatement.

You see whenever we talk, BM, would always candidly share that she prays everyday but she seldom prays for herself, she always pray for other people. 99% of her prayers are for other people and if she ever mentions herself it is simply a “postscript” rather than the center of her prayers. Below, I will put a link of all the BM articles, and there you will get to read about all the sincere charity that’s she do almost everyday. In so many ways, she is indeed a human bodhisattva.

And so when I was talking to her about the effects of the total solar eclipse on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month that is happening this year, she reminded me that aside from all the amulets, prayers is what really saved her. And of course, all the merits she has planted by way of good deeds and good thoughts without expecting anything in return.

A Lunar Eclipse, A Solar Eclipse, and the Hungry Ghost Month: A Warning that We Should All Try To Keep Safe!

Published Agosto 14, 2017 by jptan2012

A few days ago, BM, a reader and a friend from Davao, who regular readers of this blog would be familiar by this time, asked me about this year’s Hungry Ghost Month. She wants to know whether it is going to be particularly bad. If you look at the relation of the coming of the Hungry Ghost Month with the flying star of August and September, the effects should not be very bad, and so I told her that this year’s Hungry Ghost Month although we should still be very careful is not in any way particularly stronger unless you are born in the year of the Horse, Snake or Sheep.

However, when I said this I was really busy and haven’t really taken the time out to look at formation of the stars thoroughly, and so I was greatly surprised that during one of my business meetings, one of my clients who knows that I’m a Feng Shui writer asked me about the effects of the lunar eclipse. I was surprised because of my busy schedule I didn’t even realized that we just had a lunar eclipse, albeit a partial one. But of course this had me worried already, because every lunar eclipse is definitely followed by solar eclipse, and when I checked I found out that it would be a total solar eclipse!

Now whether we see the solar eclipse here in Asia or not is irrelevant because the effects is definitely worldwide.

I have written in previous articles that an eclipse is almost always a bad omen. This is whether the eclipse is solar or lunar. For this year’s solar eclipse, what makes it dreadful is that it happens on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month, and I have never ever recalled than an eclipse happening on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month, and this is most certainly an indication that something big either worldwide or to several countries will happen during the Hungry Ghost Month or will start during the Hungry Ghost Month.

In my annual forecast, I said something might happen on the 3rd quarter of this year, and this full solar eclipse on the eve of the Hungry Ghost Month seems to have validated this forecast, and so all of us have to be careful and take extra precaution. It will also greatly help if we can include in our prayers or dedication of merits our countries, the welfare of this world, and also the leaders of this world and of our countries.

On a personal level, it is best to stay indoor during the actual eclipse, and is also highly advisable to wear the Kalachakra Pendant, or carry the Vajrapani Ruel with a Chung Kwei. This is because this phenomenon also has the power wreak some bad luck in our lives. Financial problems might occur especially to those who are in the midst of big transition, or worst health or safety issues might arise especially to those who whose job or lifestyle is already putting them at risk more than a normal person is and definitely those who are already sick.

Regular readers of this blog knows that I hate being a messenger of doom, but this is something that we really need to face and be ready for. And as I always say, the reason we know these things in advance because we can do something about it.

An Auspicious First Full Moon of the 2017 Lunar Year But We Need to Keep Ourselves Protected Because of the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse!

Published Pebrero 10, 2017 by jptan2012

Tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 or the 15th day of first lunar month of the year 2017 (Year of the Fire Rooster) is an auspicious day except for people born under the sign of the Pig, which is actually their ‘conflict’ day.

Anyway, tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 (15th day of the Lunar Month of 2017) is the first full – moon day of the lunar year. On that day, you can invoke the help of the God of Joy and God of Wealth. By making a simple ritual.

Before 9AM, you should face northeast, where the God of Joy is said to be on that day, light some incense and simply say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner. Then face south, which is where the God of Wealth is then light some incense, then say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner.

Note: Use red incense sticks. 3 sticks will do. The incense burner can be a small bowl filled with salt or rice. You can still use the rice for cooking but the salt should be thrown away.

Sincerely doing good things tomorrow will double the merit for good karma or blessings.

However, tomorrow we will also have the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. This is an eclipse when the Earth’s shadow will block part of the sun’s ray from reaching the moon, thus making the moon slightly darken than usual. This is an inauspicious event, and in a way it serves as a warning to us that this year’s bad energies will come mostly from Earth, meaning those are manmade. However, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse may also bring in some energy, so it is better to be indoors when it happens. This particular eclipse is not as bad as other eclipse in the sense that it doesn’t completely block out the borrowed yang energy (light) of the moon from the sun, but it will still have some bad effect, so those people who have a somewhat bad forecast this year should absolutely be indoors when this happens.

Note: Most of you, especially if you practice Feng Shui, you would know that any eclipse will have some negative effects because it is when the Yin wins over the Yang!

It is also best to keep your lights open and if possible wear your amulets. I for one, whenever there is an eclipse, I always make sure that I’m protected and have my Vajrapani Ruel with me.

Wake Me Up When September Ends!

Published Setyembre 30, 2016 by jptan2012

‘WAKE ME UP WHEN SEPTEMBER ENDS!’ Has been the cry of a lot of people this month. I was so focused on the negative energies of the previous month that I failed to concentrate on the month of September or for the 8th Lunar Month. However, there is a strong hostile energy this September, which is cause by the Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars and on top of that, it was extremely bad that we had a prominent Harvest Moon eclipse that occurred a day after the Mid – Autumn Festival (Mooncake Festival), a festival that is suppose to cleanse the energy of the previous month, as such no cleansing happened.

Not all, but a lot of my readers and the people are experiencing some kind of hostile chi or hostile energies. For some this translated into family problems, and for a lot this translated into financial or business problems. A reader has a lot of expenses, but relatively lower income coming in, another reader was driven away from their house, another reader had a big family problem. Of course, there are a few who have some good news but they are more of an exception rather than the rule.

These negative hostile energies don’t end until October 7, 2016. So it is good to protect oneself with some powerful amulets like the gold Kalachakra pendant, Vajrapani Ruel, Suranggama Mantra Amulet, or images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. However, even with protection, one should be reminded to lay low a little.
