2018 Year of the Earth Dog Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi Chart, Flying Stars Formula, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Year that Brings Success Although it Lacks Wealth Luck but the Flying Stars Formula Offers A Little More Hope! (Four Things to Remember – Wear Gold, Be Hardworking, and Most Importantly Have Faith and Be Determined!) – Part 2

Published Disyembre 12, 2017 by jptan2012

In the first part of this post, I wrote about my general Feng Shui forecast on the year, largely base on the bazi chart of the year, here I will share more base on the Flying Stars and on the 24 Mountain Stars. There I wrote about what should we generally expect in the lunar year to come, and while there is a bleak forecast about wealth luck/financial luck/money luck, there are some good things that we can expect also.

I’m always a little apprehensive about some of the things that I write especially if there is a bleak forecast, because since I earned the reputation of being the only Feng Shui writer or Feng Shui enthusiast at that who was able to accurately forecast the tragedy of Typhoon Haiyan / Typhoon Yolanda and the devastation it brought prior to the calamity and not post – calamity, my annual predictions, especially the significant ones has all come to fruition. I did this during the annual forecast for the year. And so while I still believe that the bleak financial forecast will also come true, I also believe that arming ourselves with hard work, determination, faith in higher being, and with Feng Shui charms or Buddhist and Taoist amulets will definitely see us through this dilemma. For this year, it is important that we wear gold. More importantly we should wear the Holy Trinity of Amulets which are the (1) Special Gold Piyao and/or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, (2) GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa, Earth Store Bodhisattva), and (3) the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA combined amulet in a metal holder. If you want to understand about these amulets better, I suggest you read the first part of this post. Actually, you have to read the PART 1 of this forecast so that you see the whole picture.

Anyway, allow me to share with you the forecast base one the 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA and the FLYING STARS FORMULA.

Note: The FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA Combined Amulets will be available middle of December 2017. No photo yet.

THE CENTER HAS #9 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR!

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.

However, for this year though because it landed in the center means it brings the SUM OF 9 luck. While this is quite difficult to explain here, all you need to know is that it brings in some good luck and uplifts a little the bleak forecast base on the bazi chart. Having said that, it is also a star that indicates, if you continue to do good, you will surely be rewarded, however, if you harvested bad you will also surely reap bad karma.

For those who have planted good deeds also, this will be a year where you can reap those rewards of good karma. And so, while there is a bleak Feng Shui forecast in the year, you might fare better than others because of your good karma. Alternately, those who sow bad karma, well, this is a year where you will need help.

Recommendations:

Before I don’t really 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.

For those who believes that they might have sowed bad karma, it will be extremely be beneficial for you, to help protect and cleanse you from the negative chi that you have planted, to wear a gold image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha.

 

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

IT ALSO HAS THE BIG AUSPICIOUS STAR AND THE ANNUAL CONFLICT STAR OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA

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 Rabbit are directly affected by this star and those who stays in the Northeast and Southeast are also side afflicted with the dreaded #5 Flying Star also known as Five Yellow Star. But more on that on the succeeding post. All people affected by this star either by virtue of their Chinese Animal Zodiac or because their home or office face East or is in the East sector should make sure that they take care of themselves. This is a powerful dreaded star that, as mentioned brings hostility and loss, either thru robbery, theft or even manipulation.

Recommendations:

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 East or simply staying in the East of their house or office should have the following: Vajrapani Ruel / Kalachakra / The Combined Amulet of the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet and the Lama Atisha Amulet.

The East also has two stars from the 24 Mountains Formula. These are namely the Big Auspiciousness Star and Annual Conflict Star. As you can deduce already, the Big Auspiciousness Star is the good star to have and you can further enhance this star by wearing the Special Gold Piyao. The Annual Conflict Star is a star that brings in some misfortune either in a big way or in ways that creates small stresses that builds up to a big one. The good news is that this can be suppress by the Special Gold Piyao or an image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Earth Store Bodhisattva).

 

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE FAVORED #8 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE WEALTH STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE SUI PO, ANNUAL CONFLICT STAR, AND THE HEAVENLY SEAL STARS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

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 overall abundance. This year, this is considered as the luckiest star because it will bring wealth where the year shows there is none. That is not to say though, that this star is as strong as the previous years, because it while it brings wealth, it has to pull off wealth from somewhere. Thus, it has to be activated.

With the 24 Mountain Stars, the Sui Po is so weak this year that you can almost ignore it. The Heavenly Seal is auspicious it brings in heavenly support. Furthermore, and it will help strengthen the #8 Flying Star or the Wealth Star. However, the Annual Conflict Star is a cause for concern, because it brings misfortune thus there is a need to protect oneself from it.

Recommendations:

Faux gold Coins or Bars or Ingots should be place on this sector. Placing an image of a Wealth Deity like the Maitreya Buddha, Kuan Kong, Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) or Sun Wukong is also going to be extremely auspicious. If the door of your office or office building or home, and/or if your bedroom or office is on this sector, it will be good for you to wear a Special Gold Piyao or a VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET to help activate the #8 Flying Star that will bring in wealth luck.

While you need not do anything to activate the Heavenly Seal Star, you can help strengthen it by wearing or hanging the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA combined amulet on this sector. If you are on this sector a lot, you can wear one also. Lastly, to protect yourself from the Annual Conflict Star, you can simply wear the Special Gold Piyao which is also the one you need to activate the Wealth Star.

THE SOUTH HAS THE #4 FLYING STAR WHICH IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE ROMANCE AND SCHOLASTIC STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE NATURAL DISASTER OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA AND IS THE FACING THREE – KILLINGS LOCATION OF THE YEAR!

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.

Unfortunately, it also has the Star of Natural Disaster, and while this star has no direct effect on a personal level, countries that is in the South Sector of the map, or provinces that is in the South side of a country might find that there is an increase of calamities.

This is also the Facing of the Three Killing. And while the three killing stars might bring conflict, it is quite easy to deal with it, you simply face it. And in a way, just by being on this sector, you are already dealing with it.

Recommendations:

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.

 

THE SOUTHWEST HAS A FAVORED STAR WHICH IS THE #6 FLYING STAR OR THE HEAVEN’S BLESSING AND MENTOR STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE YIN JIA, YI DUO, GOLDEN DEITY STARS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room is in the Southwest 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 (Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you achieve your goal.

While the Yin Jia and Yi Duo Stars are a cause for concern, you can easily protect yourself from it by wearing a protection amulet.

The good news is that you also have the Golden Deity Star, and having this star means you’ll get blessings from various deity. This is also an auspicious star that helps brings in wealth, and so this is considered as an extremely auspicious star, especially in a year when the energies are lacking of wealth luck / financial luck / money luck.

Recommendations:

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 Sheep or Monkey 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: Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin, Shakyamuni Buddha, and/or Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

To enhance the Golden Deity Star, it is best to wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store.

You can easily protect yourself from the ill effects of the Yin Jia and Yi Duo Stars by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA combined amulet.

 

THE WEST HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ILLNESS STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE ANNUAL CONFLICT AND REDUCING ENERGY STARS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

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.

Both the Annual Conflict Stars and the Reducing Energy Stars of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula are negative stars, and thus these are stars that will definitely be dealt with. The Annual Conflict star will definitely bring in a lot of stress that may develop into something serious, but having this star both in WEST 1 and WEST 3 sectors will definitely make things so much worse. Then the Reducing Energy star, joining the Illness Star will definitely make things bad for people who stays in this sector.

Recommendations:

To counter the effects of this illness star (also of the reducing energy star of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula), 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 West of the house.

Two years ago 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 West 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.

This year he has replaced the holder and made it into metal, because the metal elements helps suppress the illness star.

People in this sector can also wear the Special Gold Piyao to suppress the double effects of the Annual Conflict Star.

 

THE NORTHWEST HAS #1 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VICTORY STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE SMALL AUSPICIOUSNESS STAR AND THE STAR OF ROBBERY OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA. THIS YEAR, THE TAI SUEY OR THE GRAND DUKE JUPITER ALSO RESIDES ON THIS SECTOR!

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 money – making projects to take off. This is a good star especially for those who have projects that are not wealth – centric. This also gives an advantage for those who stays in this sector in their career.

This sector also has the Small Auspiciousness Star, but for this year, every small blessing is big and so those whose house or buildings or office, or those who stay in this sector are quite lucky to have this star.

Unfortunately, you also have the Star of Robbery, and so as the name of the star implies you have to be careful about robbery. However, robbery here doesn’t only imply to actual robbery, although it could be that, but more of being robbed off your hard work on a project like recognition, or losing the project at its final stage.

Recommendations:

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.

For the Star of Robbery, having the Vajrapani Ruel or the Special Gold Piyao or the Kalachakra Pendant made of gold is enough protection for you not to be affected by this star.

It is extremely advisable for you to activate the Small Auspiciousness Star by having the Special Gold Piyao.

However, it should be noted that this year, the Tai Suey God is in the Northwest. 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 2018, the Tai Sui (Tai Suey) God of the year is Supreme General Jiang Wu. 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.

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 appeased 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 Dog and Pig are directly affected by the Tai Suey God (also spelled as Tai Sui, Tai Sue) regardless of where their room is, also affected are the Horse and Rat, and they should have the Piyao. Also, if your door faces Northwest, or if your bedroom and office is in the Northwest 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 NORTH HAS THE MOST DREADED STAR WHICH IS THE #5 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE 5 – YELLOW STAR OR WU WANG!

IT ALSO HAS THE THREE KILLINGS AND NATURAL DISASTER STARS OF THE 24 – MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

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 North 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 North is ruled by the water element, which actually reduces the energy of the metal it should make the Wu Wang, an earth element weaker. But this year, the North has weak water energies and the double earth energy of the years makes the Wu Wang stronger. 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 RAT, 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.

Add to that is the Three Killings, and the Natural Disaster Stars. I’m not very worried with the three killings but since North is also weakened you will need extra protection. Not to mention you also have the Natural Disaster Star.

Again, 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.

Recommendations:

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 or jade 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 Rat.

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 drawback 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 because you would want the protection energy to build up already.

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. But because the North is already weakened having the FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET is also a must.

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).

 

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE #3 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ARGUMENTATIVE STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE ANNUAL KILLING STAR, BIG AUSPICIOUSNESS STAR AND EARTH SEAL STAR OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

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.

The Annual Killing Star is a star that causes a lot of problem, but the good thing is this sector also has the Big Auspiciousness Star and the Earth Seal. The Big Auspiciousness Star is a powerful star that brings in wealth amongst other blessings. The Earth Seal, has the potential to bring in wealth also but you have to ‘cultivate’ it.

Recommendations:

The best cures for this argumentative 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, in the past few years it has been proven that the gold pendant of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva) worn around the neck is also a very powerful tool against this star. Furthermore, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA combined amulets will also work well for this star. For those people whose office or bedroom is in this sector should wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva pendant made of gold.

For the annual killing star one can use the Special Gold Piyao to counter the effects of this star. To help activate the Earth Seal, one can wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store as a gold pendant.

One should note though that regardless of your Chinese Animal Zodiac, it will be good for everybody to have the Holy Trinity of Amulets of the year, which is basically are the (1) Special Gold Piyao or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET; (2) gold pendant of the image of Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha / Earth Store Bodhisattva); and the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA combined amulets in a metal holder.

2018 Year of the Earth Dog Feng Shui Forecast Base on the Bazi Chart, Flying Stars Formula, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Year that Brings Success Although It Lacks Wealth Luck! (Four Things to Remember – Wear Gold, Be Hardworking, And Most Importantly Have Faith and Be Determined!) – Part 1

2018 dog

PHOTO LIFTED FROM GOOGLE IMAGES

As soon as middle of November hits, I always get a barrage of request to write my forecast. Before I would post my forecast in January only because I want people to understand that the annual forecast is really for the lunar year and not the western or Gregorian calendar. Lunar year, usually starts end of January or sometime in February, rarely it does start in early March. However, the past two years because of some very important factors in the forecast, I have posted my forecast articles sometime in December. But I think this is by far the earliest I’m posting forecast.

Why? Because for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog (Lunar Year) which happens on February 16, 2018 early preparation is key. Furthermore, since I wrote an article that gives a peak to what’s in store in 2018 lunar year, which is the Year of the Earth Dog, I have been barraged to write the whole forecast. To be fair, I have worked on the formulas and the charts already, but there are a several things that I want to be revalidated by Guru Lama and by my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong. After my formulas and charts has been validated, I had to compare notes with them regarding my analysis. You see, this year is quite especial, and as I always say a year is rarely all good or all bad, there some things in the chart this is a cause for concern. But I will not jump ahead of myself, I would like to present it properly so that you will understand it clearly.

Aside from the computations, analysis and validations with Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teacher, it also takes a while for me to write my posts, because I will have to organize it properly as to where I should start, and I have to choose my words carefully so that it doesn’t subject itself to misinterpretation. Writing alone of these forecasts usually takes 7 – 10 days, minimum of 2 hours day. It takes long because for me technically speaking it’s a one – man act, I don’t have a pool of staff who do the calculations, draft the charts, do the analysis and the writing. That is why it is a bit of tedious process. Nevertheless, the good news is that I’m not able to post my Feng Shui forecast for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog base on the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), Flying Star Formula and 24 – Mountain Stars Formula.

2018 Bazi Chart

PHOTO LIFTED FROM GOOGLE IMAGES

Another reason why I need to write this forecast early, is because while the energies of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog doesn’t come early, unlike the last 2 entrances of lunar years, it does enter at the end of the last quarter of lunar year of 2017, which is the Year of the Fire Rooster, and the last quarter (November 2017, December 2017, and January 2018) are of conflicting energies, a little negative at that.

Some of you might be familiar already in reading a chart, and with one look at the chart of 2018 lunar year, one thing you will notice is that it is an imbalanced chart. It has a lot of wood, and unfortunately there is no metal. This year metal is the element that rules wealth or money or financial.

And so looking at the chart is already quite obvious that there is no wealth luck / financial luck / money luck to be had for this year. This means that income generation may be a little bit challenging. This goes for everybody, and so for this year, what is really important is for us to prepare for the coming year. One can do this by securing business deals or projects or ensuring that it will be difficult for business partners or stakeholder to rescind on agreements, for employees, one can make sure that your superiors notice how hardworking and also make sure that they notice your contributions. However, we are never a lone man, most of the time, what we make is dependent on how others do also. For example, even it is hard for a business partner to rescind on an agreement, if they are pushed to the wall, and because their own business is doing really bad, sometimes one can’t do anything about it. So, it is extremely important that one should put metal into one’s life. Make sure that the missing element is present in your life. For those, who knows their ‘Basket of Elements’ base on their Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart, and if it has a high metal rating then you are already a step ahead of the others, however, you should also still add more metal to your life to compensate for the missing element of the year.

How does one compensate the lack of metal in the year’s bazi chart? We should all wear the metal element. We should surround ourselves with it. Any metal is in a way a representation of the missing element, but because we also need the yang energy of the metal, the best metal to have is a yellow gold! It might be wrong for me to say that silver, stainless, and other metals are useless, but these are not going to be as powerful as having real gold, and not just any gold, I wouldn’t even suggest white gold or red gold (rose gold) unless if you are born in the year of the Ox, in which case the rose gold ore red gold might serve another purpose. But I’ll discuss that more in detail in the forecast for the Chinese animal zodiac.

If you don’t wear gold rings, earrings, necklace, pendants, this is the time to wear one. And the key to wearing gold this year, all you have to remember is that there is no such thing as excessive jewelry. Unless, if it becomes exaggerated, but wearing a ring on both hands, a bracelet, several pendants, earrings, bracelets is not considered as excessive. Wearing more white also helps. In your home or office, you can put white curtains, display gold images, which may be real or not, as long as it’s painted gold. Put more metal displays to compensate for the lack of the metal in the Bazi Chart of the year.

You should remember though that in wearing gold also it will be more beneficial if you wear gold that has an auspicious symbol or symbol of wealth.

At this point, I would like to point out that there appears a single metal element in one of the hidden stems. Making it a hidden metal. What does this mean? It means that money luck or wealth luck or financial luck is STILL SLIGHTLY POSSIBLE if one works really hard, or in business one has to be really creative or very strategic to create money luck or wealth luck or financial luck.

Knowing that this is going to be the situation this year, Guru Lama has released to wealth enhancing amulets. First, allow me to share with you the Special Gold Piyao, regular readers should know about this already and some of them even have shared their experience about it. You can read about their personal testimonies here:

 

 

A Piyao (also spelled called as Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie) is a celestial being or celestial creature, or celestial animal that only eats gold and silver. This is one of the most powerful wealth amulet or charm one can wear if you want to attract wealth. I have shared with my readers that since I learned Feng Shui about 2 decades ago, I have since worn a Piyao in my body, and I’m never without it. I also have shared that the best Piyao if to be worn as an amulet are either gold or jade. But for this year, and in the years where wealth luck is bad, gold takes precedence over jade. The Special Gold Piyao is of an active stance, and the design is special in a way that it will be easy for it to attract wealth. There are two designs, one is with only coin (heavenly coin) at the bottom, and this is to signify that the Piyao need not look for money or wealth anymore, but rather it is walking on wealth. The other is with a heavenly coin and auspicious words to attract different kind of prosperity into one’s life. In a way, this signifies that one need not look for wealth, but rather one would be ‘walking’ on wealth.

But what makes the Special Gold Piyao really special aside from the design is that the gold used in making this Piyao is from the ‘treasury’ of the temple. It is from the donations of the Sangha members, and these golds are place in special containers then put at the food of different Buddhas, they then receive the energy or power from the chanting of the mantras, reciting of the sutras, or pujas performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis, or High Lamas like Guru Lama.

The Special Gold Piyao is really one of the must have for the year, and forms part of the Holy Trinity of Amulet for the lunar year 2018, which is the Year of the Earth Dog. Since there is no metal in the basket, everyone needs to have this Special Gold Piyao.

Other than the Special Gold Piyao, Guru Lama has also released this year the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. I have written extensively about this amulet and have shared some of testimonies shared with me by Guru Lama. He again released this in preparation for the coming year, although needless to say it is extremely powerful even if the year is not lacking of wealth luck, maybe even more if the year is not lacking of wealth luck. It is quite special in a way that it helps create wealth luck or financial luck or money luck even if there is none in the chart. Unlike other amulet where it pulls from other paths in your bazi, this amulet creates wealth. The VAISARAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is an amulet rediscovered by Guru Lama in one of the holy tantric scriptures. Because I have written about this extensively, I will no longer discuss it fully here, but you can check the following posts to understand it more:

Now that I have mentioned one of the most important aspect of the bazi chart of the year, and how can we deal with it, allow me to discuss further what is instore for the year base on its basket of elements in the bazi chart or path chee chart.

Looking at the Bazi Chart of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog, we should all be reminded that it is a year, that is not just about money. Especially when we consider the Flying Stars formula, which I’m going to discuss in the 2nd part of this forecast, we will notice it is about a year where success is not measured by money, as it should not be. It is a year when financial success is not only the measure of success, and so those who persevere will reap a different kind of harvest, not financial but career or personal success or fulfillment.

It is also a good year for us to prepare the path for a better future. I know money is important and that preparing the path for a better future is difficult with money, thus the need for the Special Gold Piyao and the VAISRVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, but this year one should focus more on the future, on the long term, rather than just on the present and the now.

Whatever one does, it is important that one should think twice or thrice. Do not be hasty in anything, especially in making a decision. Do not be timid but do not be hasty. Weigh things properly so that you are sure you are not running into a financial trap.

Do not be impatient. The year will favor those hardworking people who shows determination. Be determined, even if sometimes you think your plan or your hard work is not paying off, study the situation, understand the problems but continue to be hardworking and be determined in what you want to achieve. If the goal is not personal or professional success but rather financial or wealth or money in nature, and you don’t have the Special Gold Piyao or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, remember that financial success is not the only basis whether your hard work is paying off, and that success need not come within the year

This is a year when one has to be careful in using one’s resources, whatever nature of this resources is. Be it wealth, or support, or any other resources. This is a year when resources get depleted but is not replenished easily. Thus, this is also a year that favors those who have a good inner chi or life chi.

Those born in the year of the Dragon, Rabbit, Tiger, and Ox has strong inner chi or life chi, although this may vary based on your bazi chart or path chee chart. These signs will be able to fare better this year than the rest of the Chinese animal zodiac. One of the most powerful thing to do to create inner chi and/or life chi is to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) made of gold. Actually, this form the second trinity in the Holy Trinity of Amulets for the year.

ksitigarbha statue

Again, if using an image of Ksitigarbha at home, I prefer to use the one with the crown, unless, he is placed the ancestral altar.

While this is not yet the annual forecast for each of the Chinese animal zodiac, it is important to say that those born in the year of the Rat and Pig, base on the year’s bazi chart are the most affected with the year’s somewhat negative energies. These two signs might feel lethargic and down, and they should remember to persevere and gather some inner strength.

As I always say, a year is seldom all bad or all good. That’s just the way it is, and so for the good part is that in term of yin – yang, the year is quite balanced. There are two yin pillars and two yang pillars on the chart, and this means that people who tend to be abusive might mellow a little, and those who are oppressed will be more heard now. This is also a very positive outlook for women’s rights, especially this year where the #MeToo campaign started again, the coming 2018 will show more of a balanced relationship between men and women.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depends on how you look at it, and maybe where you live, the chart also shows there is an overpowering presence of the wood element, which for this year signifies authority. This means that there is enough power or energy for rule of law to prevail. However, this is also the same element that gives power and energy to authority. This means people in authority will enjoy their power, now this may be good or bad depending on what kind of leaders we have. If it becomes unbalanced this means people who are in the position of absolute power or unquestioned power will become authoritarian. The only good news is that authority here doesn’t just refer to people who are in power. This also refers to people who have great life chi, so it means people who have a strong commanding star or commanding energy may be able to rule over those potential authoritarians. It is not charm that will work it is the show of command or power that will work this year. For those who want to have more authority, one can wear an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled or called as Guan Gong, or Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Qie Lan Pu Sa, Guan Te Ya, Kuan Te Ya) or a Vajrapani Ruel.

 

Some Feng Shui experts says that this is a year where common sense will prevail over irrational hotheads and troublemakers. This I’m not sure, but I guess it is only possible if the majority is of common sense and not of irrational behavior.

Largely, I believe how this energy will take effect will largely depend on the sign and Bazi Chart of a leader. In this sense, I think 2018 is going to be a challenging year for POTUS Donald Trump, this is a year where if he continuous to act the way he does, might show his downfall, or at least the start of it. Other leaders like him will start to feel that pressure also but then again, it still depends on their personal Bazi Chart. I would like to categorically say now that I will not write about the president of the Philippines.

Another good news is that this year the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart forms a powerful star called Jiang Xing. This is a very auspicious star in the sense that it helps bring in wealth also, and furthermore it brings auspicious fortune to a person who knows how to activate it. The Star Jiang Xing serves as a charm for a person to stand out, and this year standing out and getting noticed is important if you are not to be put aside, and also standing out is important for people to remember you and for your battle or in your quest to have more money. The Jiang Xing also gives you authority and a sense of trustworthiness. To summarize it brings wealth and recognition. But the unfortunate thing is that this star needs to be activated this year, because we solely lack metal element and it relies on metal element to be really powerful. So again, wearing more gold specially the Special Gold Piyao gives strength to this star. But more importantly, it is very important that one wears the combine power of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET and the LAMA ATISHA AMULET placed in a metal amulet holder. Placing them in a metal amulet holder is very important because we need metal. But more than activating the Jiang Xing, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET and the LAMA ATISHA AMULET are also very powerful protective amulet and FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET is also a very powerful wish fulfilling amulet. And this year, wish fulfilling is actually very important. This combined amulet actually forms the third amulet of the Holy Trinity of Amulet of the year.

This is an amulet that has been featured before and was released before, however, it is now placed in a metal casing. You can read more about it here:

As you can see, while there may be a cause for concern this year, this year is not at all bad. While the lack of wealth opportunities may be a little bothersome, we should remember that there are tools for us to use already so that we can make things better. The Holy Trinity of Amulets for the year is an important must – have regardless of your sign and stature in life. The major concerns are lack of wealth, and the general atmosphere of low inner chi and/or life chi. Even the Ox, Rabbit, Tiger, and Dragon who are considered to have a stronger inner chi and/or life chi will also be faced by a lot of challenges which may fall into a depletion of these energies. But these concerns are addressed by having either the Special Gold Piyao or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, and the concern about inner chi or life chi can be addressed by wearing a gold pendant of the image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (also called Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Bodhisattva Earth Store).

Lastly, we are lucky enough to have the Jiang Xing which is a star that brings wealth and recognition, but we have to activate this with the combined amulets FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET and the LAMA ATISHA AMULET in a metal casing.

And while this year maybe not as good as other years in terms of wealth, we will be presented an opportunity to truly realize that wealth or money should not be the only measure of success. This year we will have the opportunity to grow ourselves psychologically, emotionally, mentally. And this year we will be able to see our inner strength. We should learn to be hardworking, and have determination, but more importantly we should all have faith… faith in yourself, faith that things will always get better, and faith in a higher being, whether that is Allah, Buddha, or God. And allow me to share what a good friend and reader shared with me before: LET OUR FAITH BE STRONGER THAN OUR FEARS!

A Quick Post About the Things to Avoid During the Hungry Ghost Month!

Published Agosto 28, 2017 by jptan2012

Some of these things I have written in the past, some maybe just now. But allow me to quickly share a few things that one should avoid doing during the Hungry Ghost Month (Ghost Month) especially the Hungry Ghost Festival (Ghost Festival) which for this 2017 is on September 5.

Things to avoid:

  1. Avoid disturbing around and under the altar because the hungry ghosts loves to dwell around those areas because they want the yang energy.
  2. Avoid disturbing the kitchen or dining area or even the market or anywhere where there is food. Hungry Ghosts crave for food and so they might be in those areas.
  3. Do not put new fish tanks or aquarium in your house, because this might enhance the yin energy that is already pervasive during the ghost month.
  4. Do not hand wind chimes. Contrary to popular Feng Shui belief, there are a number of non – commercialized, traditional Feng Shui masters and Feng Shui experts who doesn’t believe in the use of wind chimes because a wind chime attracts spirits. I also subscribe to this belief They attract both good and bad spirits, so how can you siphon the good from the bad?
  5. Do not leave red cloths or red strings lying around the house? Red has one of the strongest yang energy and hungry ghosts will naturally crave for them.
  6. Avoid whistling especially after dark. Same principle with the wind chime, they may get attracted with the sound and they might latch on to you.
  7. Avoid properly putting any footwear beside your bed, always turn the footwear away from the bed or turn one of them over. Properly placed footwear may attract spirits to you.
  8. Do not hang your clothes overnight. Hungry Ghosts are not just hungry, they also lack clothes, while they don’t need it, they might feel that they need one because they still long for their human body. Hanging it overnight might lead them to ‘try it’ and it will cause extreme bad luck or even some hauntings.
  9. Do not pick up money on the streets or on the floor if you don’t know who owns them. Even if they’re just coins. A spirit might have latched on to it already and you will bring them with you.
  10. Do not look back if you hear a ‘pssst’ or if you hear somebody calls you in an empty space or street.

I also received some emails and questions as to what one can do if one really has to undergo a medical procedure this ghost month. I have written about this before and you can check it out by clicking here. However, please note to try to avoid this and if this is not possible, for major operations, or for medical procedure, which may be considered routine but involves senior citizens or children below 7 years of age, it is best to have the Vajrapani Ruel and/or a gold Kalachakra pendant.

Citrus and Salt Solution for Cleansing of Negative Energies!

Published Hulyo 6, 2017 by jptan2012

The preceding post is about how to take away minor negative energies by simply putting some citrus fruit in one’s room for three days.

Today, allow me to share with you a simple and natural way to help take away negative energy. This is especially good if you’re going to a wake or to the hospital and you don’t have a Vajrapani Ruel and/or a Kalachakra pendant.

It’s pretty simple.

All you need is a small spray bottle. Fill it up, but not up to the rim, with water. Then place three drops of a citrus fruit juice. You can use either lemon, Philippine calamansi, lime, pomelo or even orange. But I prefer pomelo or even calamansi. Then get a pinch of rock salt or sea salt or Pink Himalayan Salt and put it inside the bottle with water. Shake it well until the salts are dissolved.

If you go to a wake or hospital or to the cemetery spray a little above your head when you leave. That should cleanse you from any negative energy that might have attached to yourself from the yin place that you just visited.

What’s nice with this is that you can share this solution with other people.

The citrus fruit juice will spoil, so what I do instead is add a little vodka to help preserved the juice. About 7 drops of vodka will do.

A Simple and Natural Feng Shui Cure Using Citrus Fruits for People Experiencing Minor Bad Luck!

Published Hulyo 5, 2017 by jptan2012

If you are experiencing some minor bad lucks one way to stop that negative energy from continuing or escalating is to deflect it right away.

A friend recently called me requesting for the Vajrapani Ruel. Something told me that he doesn’t really need it and so I asked him as to why he is requesting for it. He then told me that he is currently experiencing some minor problems, however, these minor problems are more irritating and inconvenient rather than really a burden.

And so I told him to simply get 7 pieces citrus fruit and put it inside his room near the window. It can be oranges, lemons, limes, pomelo, or the Philippine Calamansi. He settled for lemons, and put them near his window for 3 days.

After three days things are perfectly fine again there are no more irritations caused by minor problems or bad luck!

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars Formula, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balance Chart But A Conflicting Year (Part 1)

Published Disyembre 21, 2016 by jptan2012

A lot of people have been asking me as to why I haven’t posted anything for more than a week. That is because I ran of banked stories to post because of hectic November and December and also I have to do the Feng Shui analysis for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster. This takes a lot of time for me to compute and analyze.

In the previous years, I would write my forecast in January so that it doesn’t interfere with the traditionally busy month of December. I do this because I don’t a pool of people analyzing the year’s Feng Shui for me, instead, I have to this on my own, do the computation myself then after that do the analysis. Thus it is easier to do it in January. Furthermore, I want to disabuse the belief that the energies of the year starts in January, because it starts either every February 4 of the year or when Chinese New Year comes in.

However, last year I broke this tradition because the energies of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey came early. This year, the Year of the Fire (Intense) Rooster is no different. It’s energies can already be felt by January 4, 2016 and it will already mix the with tail end of the annual energies of 2016 and the monthly energy of the last month of the lunar calendar.

2017-bazi

Image lifted from Google Images.

I write this post with a little trepidation. 2017’s Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart is quite balance, which is totally different from last year’s chart, and that is a good news. However, amongst the 4 pillars of the chart, only one pillar has a harmonious relationship, the rest are actually destructive pillars. This is not totally surprising because a year is rarely, in fact almost never totally good or totally bad. But what is a cause for concern for me is that the chart indicates a calamitous or cataclysmic event in the 3rd quarter of the year. This can be a worldwide occurrence or it can be patches of smaller (per country) cataclysmic event that will have a worldwide impact. Before I move on to discussing these things in detail, I would like to make clear again, like every year, that this forecast is base on analysis of the Paht Chee Chart / Bazi Chart of the year, together with the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. I’m not psychic, this doesn’t come from channeling an energy to make a prediction, rather I compute the bazi chart and make an analysis about it.

Now the question is how accurate are the forecast, and note that I use the word forecast and not prediction, well, as pointed out by readers I have a high batting average and I say this with extreme humility. To this day, it is only this blog who has brazenly written about the Yolanda tragedy (Typhoon Haiyan) that struck Central Visayas before it happened and not in hindsight. While I was not able to pinpoint that it will be in Leyte, I clearly pointed out that a natural calamity followed by a shortage of food will struck somewhere in Visayas in the Philippines. This was forecasted and a reader remembered and pointed it out. This was followed by the extreme heat weather forecast, then the earthquake in Nepal, and lastly by the forecast of the presidential elections in the Philippines and the financial instability that is happening now. And so I say that I write this post with a little trepidation because of some things that the chart shows may happen this year.

Anyway, I think I’m getting ahead of myself. Now allow me to share with you the year’s Bazi / Paht Chee.

For those of you who are familiar with the Bazi / Paht Chee you will notice that the first good news that I can share with you is that all five elements, namely wood, metal, water, fire, and earth made an appearance in the chart. This is good because this indicates that the year is a balance year. It’s been quite some time since we had a balance year and as you may remember, 2016 was one of the worst imbalanced years with the total absence of the fire element. Superficially speaking this 2017 should be a harmonious year, and since all elements are present, it also indicates that there should be a lot of resources available and that there should be stability. But if you notice I used the word ‘superficially’ because the four pillars indicates, as already mentioned earlier, that it is conflicting or in disharmonious state. That is true for the 3 pillars out of the 4 pillars. Furthermore, the ruling Chinese Zodiac, which is the Rooster is also afflicted with the #3 Flying Star or Argument Star, so this sort of negates that harmonious state of the presence of all the five elements in the Bazi Chart. More on about the #3 Flying Star affliction later.

Before I discuss the implications of each pillar. I would like to share with you first some of the luck controlled by each of the element.

fireThis year Wealth Luck is controlled by the Fire element. So those of you who have a high fire element in there Bazi or Paht Chee is somehow assured of wealth or financial luck coming your way. This means that it would be easier for you to get wealth luck compared to other people. To enhance this, one can simply wear more red or wear a red gemstone. Putting light in your front door is also a very powerful way of enhancing this energy; just make sure your front door is not in the North. Furthermore, one can carry a lighter and light the lighter several times a day.

earthPower Luck is controlled by the Earth Element, and this year it is quite important to have power because while it has determined a lot of things for a person, this year that energy will be doubled. Also in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year, one has to have power for one to have access to wealth luck. For those whose Bazi / Paht Chee has a very high earth element is assured already of being a little bit more powerful than most people. The Earth element is one of the most important element this year, because it controls a lot of things. To enhance this energy do wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also called Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) and one should wear more gems or semi – precious stones. Wearing citrine or topaz is one of the best stone to wear this year.

waterFriendship Luck is controlled by the Water Element. This year the water element is quite high so it indicates that instead of friendship and support that energy is turn into competitiveness. It will not be surprising if friends back stabbed friends to get more of a winning advantage, thus this brings us back to the importance of having more power. Let me clarify here that when I say power this doesn’t refer only to actual power that comes with a position, but rather also more subtle power that comes from within. Furthermore, to deflect the negative effect of this energy, one will do well to wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet(1) or a Vajrapani Ruel(1). Normally, we can suggest a harmony charm or cure, but for this year a harmony charm will not have much effect for the effects of this energy.

metalResources Luck is controlled by the Metal Element. If you notice, the suggestion is to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Why? Because one will also need the energy of a metal to have resources, which is quite an important aspect of having power. Resources here refer not only to the physical and tangible resources, but also life chi or inner chi resources.

woodIntellectual Luck is controlled by the Wood Element. There is only one wood in the chart and this means that intellect doesn’t really play much of a factor in the wielding of power, and this is quite scary, because it shows that a lot of people especially those who are in power and who are near a powerful person will not use much of their brains. However, while this is weak, it also presents an opportunity for us to tap into the energies of the wood element for us to have an upper hand. Wearing a citrine this year will already enhance that energy but if one can have a petrified wood or be surrounded by trees or plants or wear wood jewelries, then one can have access to more Intellectual Luck. Who knows this might make a lot of differences. In fact, I personally think more intellect will make a lot of difference.

Looking at the Bazi Chart, first we are reassured that it indicates that this year will be dominated by what I would call ‘action energy’. Meaning more people will be inclined to see and act on positive things, on top of that, more people will tend to be more cooperative. Politically speaking this may be a good thing because people will tend to look for more positive things from the government.

However, we all see that at the first pillar of the Bazi /Paht Chee, which is one of the more important pillar in the chart and rules the first quarter of the year, the Heavenly Stem Yin Fire is destroying the Yin Metal element of the Rooster. This indicates that the start of the year may be a little challenging in terms of personal goals and also for wealth or financial aspect. Somehow we are able to see that start of this challenges already, especially in the Philippines when the peso continues to be weak even with the influx of remittances from the Overseas Filipino Workers sector coming in. The BSP Governor (BSP stands of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas or in English Central Bank of the Philippines) has also express apprehension with how the peso is doing in the international market. Other countries might also experience the same financial crisis because this is not true only to the Philippines. However, this is where the nation’s leader comes in, depending on how they manage the country, and handle the energies of the year, this may still be reversible or at the very least tempered.

On a personal level, the start of the year will also make most people (not all) that things are not taking off the way they want it to be. It will be more difficult and people might encounter a lot of problems along the way. To help counteract these negative energies of the first quarter, which will have a lasting effect on the rest of the year, one will do well to wear a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel(2) or a Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade.

I’ll jump to the hour pillar first because this is another disharmonious pillar. This pillar rules the last quarter of the year. In this pillar you’ll see that the Yang Earth is destroying the Yang Water element of the sign of the Rat. This indicates a very strong instability for corporate worlds and most especially politically. Furthermore, it shows that the last quarter of the year may be a little turbulent; this is both for financial and personal life. Most Chinese Zodiac Animal signs are affected, especially those whose sign has an intrinsic elements of Earth, Wood, Water, and Fire. The only one that was spared is those whose intrinsic element is Metal. To counter this, it is advisable for one to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa). It is also better if this is worn as gold for you to have more of the metal energy that one needs. However, this is something that you don’t just wear on the last quarter, you need to store up on the energy bestowed by wearing the image Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (Bodhisattva Earth Store), so it is advisable to wear this as early as January of 2017.

ksitigarbha pendant

From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha. If wearing it as a pendant, I prefer the image with the five leave crown. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you’re from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore. FOR THIS YEAR IT IS IMPORTANT TO WEAR THE IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA IN GOLD.

Let us now examine the 3rd Pillar of the Paht Chee, which is the Day Pillar, a pillar that rules the third quarter of the year. For those of you who are familiar with the relationships of the elements, you’ll see right away that this is another disharmonious pillar, but this time it is the earthly branch Yang Earth element of the Dog that destroys the Yang Water of the Heavenly Stem. This indicates that the third quarter is going to be ruled by some strong power. This may be good or bad depending on who has the power, and thus superficially speaking it depends on who the leader is. However, we mentioned earlier that there is what I call ‘action energy’ or people might tend to be more cooperative. Taking that into consideration there might be a subtler power but might prove to be more effective in the long run. But what is scary here whether who has the power whether good or bad this might still have some destructive effect. A possibility of a significant calamity is also possible this 3rd quarter. Again, for this it would do well to tap on the energy of Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa (Earth Store Bodhisattva), and it will do well for one to have the Vajrapani Ruel(3) or a gold or jade Kalachakra pendant.

Let us now examine the 2nd Pillar, which is the Month Pillar and has significant effects on the 2nd quarter of the year. Putting this last in the analysis of the pillars only because this one brings good news. And it is important to be forewarned about the negative first before we concentrate on enhancing the good. The 2nd Pillar is one pillar that has a harmonious relationship. How does this translate to us? It means that the 2nd quarter of the year may be the best time of the year; especially those who want their project to take off.

This year the hidden stem also produced a lot of special stars; some of them are good some are bad. First, there is the Peach Blossom Star, which is depending on your current situation may be either good or bad. This star may help bring lovers and life long partners into your life. However, this also brings in third party problems for those who are already married or attached. Especially affected to the negative effects of this star are those couple that sleeps on their bad directions. Unfortunately, this is something that I cannot discuss here because this varies from one person to another.

The hidden stem also produced the Mentor Star, which means some of us can tap into the power of influential people or those elder either in years or experience to help achieve our goals. This also means that when you tap into the power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities, Goddess, or Taoist Gods you can get more help. To activate this star, it will do well to wear an image of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. Some of my favorites for this star are the image of Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni), Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara(1) (also called Kuan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon) or Bodhisattva Sangharama (also called Qie Lan Sheng Chong Pu Sa, Qie Lan Pu Sa, or popularly known as Kuan Kong which is also spelled as Guan Gong). This year if you are wearing an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) it also serves as tapping into the power of the Mentor Star.

Those people born under the year of the Dragon because they have the Heavenly Protector Star! This is one of the most auspicious stars produced by the hidden stem of the year. Having this star helps you get protected from the negative energies of the year. To help further strengthen this star it is highly advisable for one to wear a very powerful amulet or an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Those are some of the good stars produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Paht Chee Chart or Bazi Chart. However, there is one very strong negative star that was also produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Bazi /Paht Chee chart. This is the Malevolent Star or what others call Aggressive Star. This star helps strengthen the negative aspects of power. So wrong things might become more pervasive. Everybody is affected but people born under the year of the Rat are most affected. This also indicated a more competitive financial scenario and political scenario. Furthermore, this also shows that businesses will become more ruthless, all these has a negative connotations is each one of us. To help insulate and protect yourself from this star, it is advisable for you to have a very powerful amulet or symbol like the Vajrapani Ruel(4) or a gold Kalachakra pendant. Having the Traditional Sutra Amulets like The Diamond Sutra or The Sutra On The Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva in your home or office will also help insulate you from the negative effects of this hidden star.

Make Sure There Is Yang Energy When You Go to the Cemetery, But…

Published Oktubre 26, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post entitled – GUIDE LINES IN GOING TO THE CEMETERY – I talked about why it’s important to get yourself protected in going to the cemetery, also I talked about that it is important that you go there at a time when Yang energy is present.

However, I would like to make this short post in clarifying that that these yang energies should be generated by the presence of the people there, by playing mantra boxes, or lighting incense and candles. One should not create this artificially by having parties or having loud music. Some of you might not understand this, but a lot of Filipinos loves to have a very party atmosphere and they even play loud music in the cemetery. Let me clarify that it is fine to create a somewhat festive mood but not noisy ‘negative’ yang energy.

Why?

This is because a cemetery is a natural yin place and there are some spirits or entities that dwell there, which might welcome some yang energy, but not those rowdy types that creates hostile yang energy.
