What Businesses Will Do Good and What Will Be Bad This 2018 Year of the Earth Dog!

Published Disyembre 29, 2017 by jptan2012

In the preceding post – 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG FENG SHUI FORECAST: WHAT DOES THE STRONG PRESENCE OF THE WOOD ELEMENT MEANS? – I talked about the effects of the lack of the metal element and the very strong presence of the wood element in the chart. I suggest that you read that post and all the other posts about the 2018 forecast to understand what’s instore for 2018 better.

However, today I would like to focus on what businesses will face a challenging year, and what are the businesses that will do well this year. But before that I want to clarify that although in the preceding article, I classified agriculture to be part of earth. You see this has been a point of contention amongst Feng Shui enthusiast whether agriculture is earth element business or wood element business.

The quick answer to that is that there are businesses that possesses one or two or even three elements. For example, a writer is actually a wood element, but if you do it online it becomes a fire element. A real estate agent is actually earth element, but a real estate agent who travels a lot it becomes earth element with water element. In agriculture, it is earth element with wood element. Nevertheless, it can be further classified into subcategory of predominantly earth element or predominantly wood element.

For agriculture that are into harvesting fruits from a tree then it is considered as wood element business. These are the agricultural businesses where the trees are already planted, they’re there and you just wait for the time you can harvest the fruits. We are talking about mangoes, apples, oranges, papaya, etc.

The other type of agriculture that is considered as earth element are those that involves planting seeds for it to grow. Meaning, you have to let it grow from the soil every time and not just wait for it to grow on a tree. These are shrubs like tomatoes, strawberries. Or fruits that have to grow near the soil like pineapple or even radish. Rice is also part of this.

Again, to clarify that it is only considered a wood element if it’s a tree that has fully grown and you just harvest it from the tree. It is considered as earth element if it grows from a seed, or a shrub, or grows near the soil or under it. There are some fruits where you can harvest it from the tree, but before that you have to let the ‘seed’ grow under the soil. For this, when it is fully grown it is considered as wood, but when as a ‘baby’ it is considered as earth.

Now let me discuss what are the businesses or industries that will do well this 2018. To put it plainly, wood element businesses and metal element businesses will do well. Metal element businesses because metal is lacking in the chart, and it represents wealth luck / money luck / financial luck in a way you are surrounded by metal element by being in that business or industry.

Fire element business will be fair, but water element businesses will do worse than the fire element businesses, but it will do better than the earth element businesses which will be the worst performing business or industry this year.


 

WOOD ELEMENT BUSINESSES OR INDUSTRIES (GOOD)

Office supplies, cultural profession, gardening, novelist, bookshop, cloth, curtains, writer, fabric, library, journalist, librarian, doctor, nurse, health care products, educator, teacher, professor, school or other education businesses, publishing, carpentry, civil service/civil servant, paper, wood furniture, timber, plantation.

For those whose businesses belongs to the wood element and metal element industry, you can further enhance it by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and carry with you the VAJRAPANI RUEL, to help safeguard you from the ill effects of the year.


 

METAL ELEMENT BUSINESSES OR INDUSTRIES (GOOD)

Accounting firms/Accountants, insurance, gold/jewelry, automobile, banks, glass, military, police, engineering, moulding, mechanical engineers.

For those whose businesses belongs to the wood element and metal element industry, you can further enhance it by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and carry with you the VAJRAPANI RUEL, to help safeguard you from the ill effects of the year.


 

FIRE ELEMENT BUSINESSES OR INDUSTRIES (FAIR)

Internet, psychologist, artist, graphic designers, anything that has to do with computer, art, electronics, mobile phone, beauticians, parlor, fuel, singer, dancer, movie, celebrities, hot beverages (although this is tricky because this crossover with water), cooking, restaurants, electric engineers, energy, fireworks, food processing, oil companies, petroleum, chemical engineers, chemistry, multimedia, liquor, lighting.

For those whose business belongs to the fire element industry, you can also wear a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and also wear a gold KALACHAKRA pendant or FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET to help protect you and strengthen you at the same time.


 

WATER ELEMENT BUSINESSES AND INDUSTRIES (BAD)

Overseas travel (this year the Philippines and neighboring countries will see an increase of their citizens going abroad to work), spa, fire fighting, aquarium, cold beverages, soy sauce, sports, swimming coach, cleaning or sanitary companies, casino, sailing, retail business, stocks, ice cream, fish, fruits, airconditioners, tourism, transportation, entertainment, fashion (which has a lot of wood element also).

For those whose business belongs to the water element industry, you can wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET to help boost your financial luck and business luck. Likewise, you can also wear or carry with you either the VAJRAPANI RUEL or a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.


 

EARTH ELEMENT BUSINESSES AND INDUSTRIES (VERY BAD)

Agriculture (please refer to the explanation above), real estate, real estate agents, architecture, building, construction, pet shop, storage, antiques, building materials, ceramics, marble, marble, pottery, recycling, sculptures, masonry, mining (although this involves metal element also).

For those whose business belong to the earth element industry, you can wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and the DIPANKARA – AJITA AMULET, which is an amulet that was specially made for people who in the earth element industry. This is a special amulet to help you survive what would otherwise be a very challenging year ahead.

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

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

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 naturally 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.

The strong presence of wood my also signify an increase in natural calamities. Will discuss in a future post.

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!

The Magic of A Five Colored String in Creating Good Luck!

Published Agosto 3, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you a short post on how to create good luck simply by using simple items. Those simple items are simple 5 different color of strings.

When you are experiencing some bad luck, and naturally would want those bad luck to turn into good luck, simple get 5 different strings. Get the colors RED, GREEN, YELLOW, BLACK/BLUE, and WHITE. These colors represent the five elements – FIRE, WOOD, EARTH, WATER, and METAL.

In front of your altar, light an incense, then pass the string three times above the incense burner, after that tie a knot at one end of the string then proceed to braid them, while braiding chant OM MANI PADME HUM.

string

This is a sample of what you want to achieve. But do not use metal hooks, you would want to knot it in the end.

The idea is to make a braided string long enough to become a bracelet. If you have long enough braided string, stop chanting and tie a knot again, make sure you have enough strings on both ends to tie a knot on your wrist. After you’ve done this, tie it around the wrist of your receiving hand. Leave it there, do not untie it even if you take a shower or swim. You should see some changes in your life within 7 days after doing this. Note though that this works best for small bad lucks.

Soon the strings will break, don’t worry about it, it’s just a normal wear and tear. Once it has broken off, bring it to a temple and leave it there.strings

Recite – A – Sutra (10): Blessings from Reciting “The Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva”!

Published Marso 29, 2017 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog knows that I’m a great believe of reciting sutras because reciting sutras has the power to attract numerous blessings and offer strong protection to a person who recites it. In fact, simply having a copy of a sutra, especially if it’s the Traditional Sutra Amulet format, if one is unable to recite will give you financial blessings, peace, happiness, and protection. This blog has shared some of the personal testimonies of my readers who has requested for the Traditional Sutra Amulets (TSA).

earth-store-bodhisattva-sutra-traditional

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

But today, in this post, allow me to share with you some of the wonderful blessings you may receive if you recite the SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. These are the blessings especially mentioned in the sutra. But to understand it further, I have copy – pasted the commentary (short explanation) of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. This is to make the promise of the blessing a little more clearer.

Note: Earth Store Bodhisattva is also known or called as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha and Di Zhang Pu Sa.

Here is the list of the blessings as stated in the sutra itself followed by commentary of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

First, they will be protected by gods and dragons. Gods, celestial dragons and celestial asuras will protect you because you know how to recite the Earth Store Sutra. Asuras in the heavens enjoy blessings but no authority. They swear to protect you. Gandharvas are music spirits before the Jade Emperor. They are also called “sniffing spirits”. Whenever the Jade Emperor lights up a particular incense, Gandharvas come. There are male gandharvas and female gandharvas. Male gandharvas wear a horn similar to chimeras on their heads. Once they get a whiff of this scent, they will dance and sing, so the celestial music rings in the heavens. Recite Earth Store Sutra and gandharvas will sing praises as they dance on air. Garudas are Great Peng birds with golden wings. Kinnaras are music spirits too. Maharagas are giant pythons. All of them protect someone who recite the Earth Store Sutra or bow to Earth Store Bodhisattva.

Second, their good roots will increase daily. Sometimes cultivators are extremely bold as they set their resolve on Bodhi; consequently doing a lot of merit. Sometimes they turn around and withdraw. They retreat because they feel that they do not experience any responses despite all the merit they do for Buddhism. Good results increase daily means that they do no retreat; instead they grow by the day. They develop blessings and wisdom, do good and virtuous deeds, achieve merit and always move forward vigorously in Buddhism. Why? It is because you recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, recite the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra or pay respects to Earth Store Bodhisattva that you experience the response of growing good effects on a daily basis.

Third, they will amass supreme causes pertaining to sagehood. This means they do various jobs in Buddhism, such as printing sutras and building temples. Repairing bridges and paving roads are about amassing supreme causes pertaining to sagehood too. Making sutras, turning the great Dharma wheel and doing all these good deeds are about cultivating the path to Bodhi and amassing supreme causes pertaining to sagehood.

Fourth, they will not retreat from Bodhi. Sometimes we are vigilant and sometimes we are lax in our cultivation. Vigilant, we are quite bold with everything. Lax, we feel that we are not getting any responses from any work we do, so we retreat. Recite Earth Store Sutra, recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, and bow and make offerings to Earth Store Bodhisattva; we do not renounce our resolve for Bodhi. Our wish for enlightenment moves ahead and grows on a daily basis, never retreating.

Fifth, their clothing and food will be abundant. We are not short of clothes or food. People work their entire lives for those three meals a day. They work hard out of fear of dying because of starvation or cold. They are always looking for more money. When we did not have any money, we want 10,000 dollars. When we get our wish and earn 10,000, we find that lacking. We tell ourselves, if we had 100,000 dollars, we will retire. But when we make that 100,000 dollars, we remember that our kids have to go to school. We do not have enough money. We want to buy a car, so there is not enough money. We want to buy a cruise boat, so there is not enough money still. Thinking even bigger, we may want an airplane. Hundred thousand dollars does not do any good. We look for money.

When we find that one million dollars and are ready to buy that plane, the price of the airplane has gone up. We could have purchased it for $990,000 before, but now it is $9,900,000. The price has gone up by ten times. We cannot afford it once again. We can never catch up because of our greed. We were going to be satisfied and retired as millionaires, but we end up continuing with the pursuit. We are never satisfied and never content.

If you recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, recite Earth Store Sutra, bow and make offerings to Earth Store Bodhisattva, you will always enjoy more than enough clothing and food. When you want to buy an airplane, you will earn more than enough money for two airplanes. That is how wonderful this Dharma is. In that case, I will hurry up and recite Earth Store Bodhisattva! Recite Earth Store Bodhisattva in the hopes of buying two airplanes is greed. Large amounts of greed will not bring about results. All we can do is try our best while reciting. Do not care so much about whether there will be results. Some say, “Master, I feel I am tricked by what you say!” Then what? Do not be tricked. Consequently, we must be content and be patient with what comes.

Sixth, they will never succumb to epidemics. Recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name and you will not contract any contagious diseases. Epidemics cannot touch you because there seems to be a border between you and the disease.

I remember when I was in Northeast China during a plague. A household of eleven had thirteen deaths in three days. How can a household of eleven have two more deaths than the number in the family? Two were bearers of gifts. Eleven was not a large enough number, two more had to be added. Out of these two, one was a worker for the family and the other was a distant relative who came to visit. They were additions to the eleven that made the total number of dead thirteen. When I was there, I took four young disciples with me. “We are going to go and rescue people!” How? I told them, “Let us recite the Great Compassion Mantra to duel the plague spirit.” We went to villages plagued by this epidemic and circled the place three times, reciting the Great Compassion Mantra. When we finished reciting Great Compassion Mantra, the epidemic vanished. So reciting the Great Compassion Mantra is very effective and wonderful.

Seventh, they will escape calamities involving fire and water. Recite Earth Store’s name, there will be no floods or fire, or they will not drown in water and not be burned by fire. They will naturally float to shallow spots and reach the shore when they fall into the sea; they will naturally be rescued when fire is closing in on them.

Eighth, they will never be threatened by thieves. Why are you robbed and stolen from? It is because you unreasonably took other people’s money for your own. You had lied in the past so you are robbed in this life. You have to pay your due. This is the reason why you are robbed and stolen from. All this is a result of cause and effect. There is nothing strange about it. If you really understand this, then you will see the cause and effect in any state and recognize this cyclic law.

Ninth, they will be respected by all who see them. Recite Guanshiyin Bodhisattva (also known as Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Yin) and Earth Store Bodhisattva’s names and pay respect to them; people will respect you and feel close to you. They feel as if they see relatives from long ago. They feel so close to you, as if they have come home. This is like being along overseas where you know no one. When you meet some old friends, you feel awkward. You do not know whether you are happy or sad, whether to smile or cry, Or you want to laugh and cry! You cry because you see someone dear to you. You laugh because you feel secure now.

People respect you at the sight of you. No one criticizes you or mistreats you. Do not say, “You know, I am an upasaka! You must respect me!” Or, “I am a Dharma Master, bow to me when you see me!” This is not about forcing others to respect you. The saying goes, “ Musk will naturally smell nice, why let the wind blow on it?” If you were really virtuous, do not act like some medicinal patches salesperson. “Oh, my medicinal patch is the best. Arthritis, rheumatism, numbness, just put on this patch and it will cure itself even if you do not put on the patch. Do not sell yourself, fearing that others will not know you. “Do you know who I am? I am the most powerful Buddhist Dharma Protector. I am a senior Dharma Protect at so and so temple. Also, I am the Board of Director of some charity organization. I am also the supporter of some place, etc., etc.” One introduces oneself because one is afraid that other people will not know. Stop, that is pretense and untrue. Advertise and sell yourself, then blind individuals will not know and be swindled by you; but people with eyes will see it right away, finding you pathetic.

Tenth, they will be aided by ghosts and spirits. If you have real merit, why publicize it for yourself? Ghosts, spirits, & Dharma protectors will help and support you. They will help you and resolve your difficulties from behind the scenes. No need to publicize. The tenth advantage is that all ghosts, good and bad, and all spirits, good and bad, will all help you. Evil spirits will also help you? Is this due to the power of Earth Store Bodhisattva? It is by the power of Earth Store Bodhisattva. All evil ghosts and spirits become Dharma protectors.

If I recite Earth Store King Bodhisattva, will he tell people to come and scold me? No. Why? To tell you the truth, you are not up the level yet! You have not even finished studying, how can you pass the test? You pass when you graduate from college. Why test you if you just entered college and have not even graduated? Do not think that scolding is bad. Scoldings are tests. If you can take it, you pass. If you pass, keep going forward and cultivate. Do you cultivate any more after you pass the test? Cultivate even more once you pass. If not, what is the use of passing the test? What is the use of studying to earn a Ph.D.? It is the same idea. If you understand, you understand; if you do not understand, there is nothing I can do.

Eleventh, women who want to, can be reborn as men. The eleventh advantage is that if you are tired of being a woman, by paying respects and making offerings, praising and reciting the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra, or reciting and praising Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, then you as a woman will turn into a man. Perhaps it is not because you are tired of being a woman that you wish to become a man. You feel that it is inconvenient being a woman and therefore wish to become a man. You make that kind of vow because everything will be convenient then. Earth Store Bodhisattva will make your wishes come true.

Twelfth, women who want to, can be reborn as daughters of national leaders and officials. Any wish to go from a woman to a man will be met. So will the wish to go from a man to a woman. Men may recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, bow to an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or recite the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra to become a woman who teaches living beings. Women usually have less of a temper, are more detail-oriented and speak as if they have affinities with others. This is why some Bodhisattvas make the vow to go from being men to women. They go from being men to women to propagate the Buddhadharma and teach living beings. Consequently, these women are not average women, but daughters to kings and ministers. They enjoy a lot of power to influence people so that people may develop their faith and intention to cultivate. These women have been reborn again because of their vows.

Thirteenth, they will have upright appearances. The thirteenth advantage is not only about being women, but women who are intelligent and wise, nice looking without any flaws. The nose, eyes, ears and mouth all look the way they should. Someone asks, “Are there ears that do not look like ears. Are there eyes that do not look like eyes?” Some women have triangular eyes or strange looking eyes that look about as if they are ready to steal some cows. They do not look so elegant. They are rather crude, improper and less than perfect. The nose is on top of the head, with nostrils pointed upward. What do you think that is like? Some women have one eye up close to the sky and one eye close to the floor, ears on the back of her head, and a mouth on the chin. They do not look quite like people, not quite like ghosts, and not quite like monkeys. If they were a product of evolution, how is it that they do not look like anybody else but they are the only ones who look that way? This is an improper and imperfect look. If you wish to become women, your looks ought to be perfect and proper. If your features were proper-looking, people will feel a sense of affinity with you. If your features were improper, people take a look and run away as if they saw a yaksha.

Fourteenth, they will often be born in the heavens. The fourteenth advantage surpasses those described before. They are born in the heavens often to enjoy heavenly blessings and supremely wonderful bliss.

Fifteenth, they may be emperors or national leaders. The fifteenth is that they may become candidates for emperors by reciting the Earth Store Sutra, bow to Earth Store Bodhisattva, and recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name. This is an incredible advantage. “Dharma Master, I do not want to go to the heavens and be an emperor or be a good-looking individual. This Saha World is so miserable, I have had enough already.” You really had enough? There are other opportunities for realizing Buddhahood, the last enumerated advantage is to realize Buddhahood.

Sixteenth, they will have the wisdom to know past lives. They know what they did in their past lives. Perhaps they were political officials, scholars or business people. They know what their last names, first names were, their place of birth and age of death. Now they are in a new house, different from their earlier ones. Those with the power to know past lives know what occurred in their past lives.

Seventeenth, they will obtain whatever they seek. The 17th advantage is that you get what you want. You want riches and you get them. You want people, you get people. You want food, you get food. You want to be rich and you will own an uncountable amount of gold, silver and jewels. Just avoid following in the footsteps of Disatrers.Reza Shah Pahlavi [the Iranian czar], who earned so much money, none of which was enjoyed during his lifetime. He died empty-handed. How meaningless and worthless. Do not be misers.

Eighteenth, their families will be happy. The 18th advantage is that their family, relatives and friends around them are all happy, safe and at peace. People do not fight or argue. This creates happy families.

Sometimes a lot of afflictions develop in the family, between husband and wife, father and son, brothers and sisters, or in-laws. The most intimate relationship in our lives has to be that between parent and child. When their opinions diverge, the child may think: “Look, the old man’s brain is arcane; his knowledge is arcane; everything he does is arcane. He has not caught up with modern times and does not know how to deal with the contemporary world.” He feels that old people do present a problem. Elders are so concerned about their children that they forgive their children no matter what wrong they do.

The children, unfortunately, are ungrateful and consider the elders in the wrong. Why do you not educate your children well? It is because parents do not know how to teach their children. Consequently children do not know how to take care of their parents. Many problems remain unresolved between parents and their children. As for couples, before marriage, both wear a façade and do not argue or fight. After marriage, both display their temper. The man will let the woman know that he is upset and the woman will let the man know that she is upset. They give each other stress. With this 18 th advantage, your families and friends will always be happy if you get to see an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or hear the name of Earth Store Bodhisattva.

Nineteenth, they will never undergo any disasters. All disasters and accidents, adverse and inauspicious events are unexpected disasters. Suicide by hanging, drowning at the sea, airplane crashes, car accidents, suicide by taking poisons are all unexpected deaths. When all accidents disappear, all disasters disappear. There will be no more hurt or harm.

Twentieth, they will leave the bad karmic paths forever. No more offense karma. The three evil destinies are the realms of hell-beings, hungry ghosts, and animals.

Twenty-first, they will always reach their destination. The 21st advantage is one where they go everywhere unobstructed and very smoothly. Things are auspicious and beneficial for them.

Twenty-second, their dreams will be peaceful and happy. The 22nd advantage. Unlike average people’s dreams some always have vicious nightmares. They experience nightmares where they are either chased by ghosts, bitten by dogs, or eaten by tigers. Sometimes they are pressed upon by ghosts and cannot move. They panic. Recite The Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra and Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, your dreams will become happy and lucky.

Twenty-third, their deceased relatives will leave suffering behind. The 23rd advantage is that your parents, ancestors, and relatives since beginningless time, will leave suffering and attain bliss, become liberated from birth and death. Many deceased individuals fall into the hells because of their karma. However, because you see an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or hear the name of Earth Store Bodhisattva, there are 28 advantages that make the deceased leave suffering behind and acquire bliss. The deceased of the present are our deceased parents and relatives in this life. They will leave suffering and attain bliss. The deceased of the past are all of our deceased parents and relatives throughout all of our lives will leave suffering and attain bliss.

Twenty-fourth, they will enjoy blessings earned in previous lives. You ride on the good roots and blessings from your past lives. Having done a lot of merit and planted deep roots of goodness, they enjoy such blessings of lives past. Why are we rich in this life? In past lives we made offerings to the Sangha and offered charity to the poor. In the past, we made offerings to the Triple Jewel, guarded Buddhism, and helped the poor. This is why we are rich in this lifetime. Why are we poor in this life, perhaps so impoverished that we have no clothing or food? In past lives we refused to help the poor. In lives past, we refused to aid the poor. We were very stingy and did not want to give up anything. If we were not so miserly before, but cultivated blessings and wisdom instead, then the blessings done in past lives may be enjoyed in this lifetime.

Twenty-fifth, they will be praised by sages. The 25th is that all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, sages, and arhats praise you and tell you that you are a good man or a good woman.

Twenty-sixth, they will be intelligent and have keen faculties. The 26th advantage is about being very smart and wise, having a powerful memory. The eyes are bright and they see far. The ears hear well. All six sense faculties are keen.

Twenty-seventh, they will be magnanimous and empathetic. The 27th is being full of sympathy and compassion toward everyone. Providing every individual with joy and relieving one of one’s pain. Regardless of how unkind people are, they treat others kindly and refuse to seek revenge.

Twenty-eighth, they will ultimately realize Buddhahood. What is the 28th advantage? This is the most critical advantage– to irreversibly enter the Bhodi path so that they will definitely become Buddhas in the future.

One of My Feng Shui Forecast for this Year of the Fire Rooster Just Happened. What Can We Do About It?

Published Pebrero 21, 2017 by jptan2012

Every year I write a forecast that is base on the year’s Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart coupled with the 24 Mountain Stars Formula and the Flying Star Formula. This year was no exception, and regular readers of this blog or those who have read my forecast knows that last December 2016 when I posted the first of the three articles of the annual forecast, I mentioned that the peso would continue to weaken against the dollar. I specifically mentioned that there is a very strong possibility that we will hit Php 50.00 against the US$. And last weekend, that’s what just happened. Today, Feb. 20, 2017 it hit Php 50.24, which is the highest in 10 years!

I think it will hit up to Php 52.00 to Php 54.00 (although it might fluctuate a little) before it normalizes or become more stable. Some of you might say that this is temporary, or we don’t feel the effect anyway. Well, we don’t really feel it yet, maybe because we are middle class or upper class, but some people especially in the lower income bracket are already feeling it, and we should all the feel effects in the next few weeks. I haven’t done the chart for next year, but this is not temporary, at least not for this year.

Why am I writing this?

Modesty aside as some readers has pointed out my batting average for my forecasts are quite high. The very forecast that I wrote about that actually come to fruition is about the Yolanda Calamity in Leyte. To this day, I’m quite positive that I’m the only Feng Shui writer who wrote about it pre – calamity and specifically mentioned that it will happened in Visayas and that a shortage of food might happened because of the said calamity. It was followed with the forecast of unnatural hot climate, which also happened. Then I also talked about the earthquake in Nepal, which also happened. For last year, I wrote about the possible financial instability that may happen mid – year to end of the year, and unfortunately this also happened, because the Philippine peso started to get weaker against the dollar since towards the middle of the year.

I’m enumerating these things not to pat my own shoulder and say well done with the forecast, but rather I need to establish that there is a certain level of accuracy that I hit. And I think I’m also the only Feng Shui writer who has said that we might hit Php 50.00 against the US$ in the first quarter. And so far, I hit that also. What I’m driving at is it is better to be ready for a possible calamity, which is will likely be man – made towards the end of the 3rd quarter or at the start of 4th quarter. For those who have a weak financial luck or wealth luck or money luck this year would be very well to get ready and save up for the ‘winter’ to keep you ‘warm’.

You can chant the following mantras everyday for this year (108X each):

OM MANI PADME HUM

OM VAJRAPANI HUM

OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM

OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA

OM PADMO KRODA ARYA DZAMBHALA HRIH DAYA HUM PHAT

Furthermore, it is very good if you carry with you a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel(1), and for everybody it would be nice to wear citrine and an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant made of gold.

A Short Feng Shui Reminder for the Cures of the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster and My Thoughts on the 65th Miss Universe!

Published Enero 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Every year I will always write about a short reminder about cures that one needs. This year is no different, but because the 65th Miss Universe is being held in the Philippines, a lot of the Filipinos are on double Miss Universe fever. I’ve been receiving a lot of email and sms asking me for my forecast as to who will win and take home the crown of the Miss Universe. In fact, another reader emailed me to suggest that I should send Ms. Philippines, Maxine Medina, her own Vajrapani Ruel(1) or Surangama Mantra Amulet(1). I doubt whether my Guru Lama will approve of me sending the Surangama Mantra Amulet(2), and the Vajrapani Ruel (2) which is considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon to Miss Universe candidates.

Well before anything else I would like to say first that 2017 came in early this year, and while the energies of the year base on the Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula has already come in, the energies base on the Flying Stars formula will come in on the 4th of February.

What does this mean? This means that although the good and bad stars, depending on what you have, base on the Flying star have already weakened, it is still best to keep yourself protected or still keep your enhancers, again depending on what you need for the Year of the Fire Monkey. But at the same time, the good and bad stars, again depending on what you have for the Year of the Fire Rooster (if you are not yet familiar with the analysis for your Chinese animal zodiac sign please see the link below at the end of this post about the analysis for this year) will start to affect you, so if you have the bad stars, especially the Wu Wang (#5 Flying Star, 5 – Yellow Star) and the Violent Star (#7 Flying Star), it is best to keep your self protected already. Again, you can read the forecast, and find out the enhancers or cure you need. The link is at the end of this post.

Now, going back to the Miss Universe Pageant. Who will win? The answer is I don’t know. Why? Because I don’t have all their birthdates, and even if I have them, I doubt that will do an analysis considering it is very tedious process. But of course, every individual has their own favorites, and for obvious reasons, most Filipinos are rooting for Maxine Medina.

Feng Shui wise any happy and festive gathering is good because it brings in yang energy, as long as it’s genuinely happy and festive. But I think what is important is to understand is why we are so excited and spend so much money for a beauty pageant. What is the essence of a beauty pageant like the Miss Universe, and in time of severe hardship, poverty, hunger, and war that’s happening in different countries, how is Miss Universe relevant and are they able to offer anything that is sustainable in the said causes?

Again, unfortunately, I don’t have the answer for the questions I pose. I think this is something that we should all answer on our own.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
