2018 Year of the Earth Dog Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs (Chinese Horoscope)

Published Disyembre 14, 2017 by jptan2012

earth dog2The whole process of coming up with a forecast is a very tedious process. Although I cross – reference the important factors with my Guru Lama and/or Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, the whole process of coming up with the computations, the analysis, and eventually is single journey on my part. A lot of you have been writing to me, sending me messages and a few of you have been calling asking for my forecast, especially the forecast of the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs (Chinese Horoscope), but please understand, as mentioned, this for me is a single journey, I don’t have a team who do the analysis and the computations and the writing for me, I do everything on my own, albeit with the guidance of my Guru Lama and Feng Shui teacher.

I also would like to thank all of you who have written to me to share with me how much this forecast has guided you, and how you think that it is accurate. Nevertheless, I want to remind everybody that these forecasts can’t be 100% accurate because at the end, there are things that will really depend on your “Basket of Elements” base on your Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart, and also there are things that will depend on your karma and with the Feng Shui of your house and office. However, you can certainly use this forecast as a guide.

It is also quite important that you read the 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG FENG SHUI FORECAST BASE ON BAZI CHART, FLYING STARS FORMULA, AND 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA Part 1 and Part 2. This will help you a better overview of what is really in-store for the year. And as mentioned, base on the chart of the year, there is an absence of metal which represents money luck / wealth luck / financial luck of the year. So, for everybody, there might be some money-making hindrances. To avoid being a victim of this unfortunate occurrence, and to help ensure that you continue to have wealth luck, it is extremely advisable for you to wear a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie) or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. Since there is no such thing as excessive activation of wealth luck this year, you can actually wear both.

Inner Chi and Life Chi is also weak for everybody, if these two are weak, then it is easy for one to give up and to just not fight for what one wants. Again, everybody is affected, and so it is extremely beneficial for everybody to wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store as a gold pendant. EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA is also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva.

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.

In cases that I mentioned that Inner Chi or Life Chi is strong it is still in relatively speaking in terms of its relationship to the year.

Lastly, the good news is that we have the Jiang Xin, an auspicious star that brings wealth and recognition, and aside from wealth, you will need to recognize for you to have more advantage in tapping into your wealth luck. However, due to the absence of the metal element, it is extremely good for you to activate this star so you can tap into its power. You can do this by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA Combined Amulet.

Of course, we all have to wear more gold also regardless of your “Basket of Elements”!

The three above mentioned amulets actually form the Holy Trinity of Amulets for the year.

And like last year, I will heed the request of my readers, to as much as possible to put photos of the amulets in all the animal signs. In the previous years, I will only put a picture in one of the animal signs since some of these are repeatedly mentioned, however, as my readers pointed out they sometimes jump the other animal signs that doesn’t concern them, so it’ll be better if I just put the link and photos in all the signs.

Also, as requested, I have streamed line the recommended cures. Before I always want to give you a wide array of cures or enhancers, but a lot of you have been complaining that this becomes confusing and so now I only recommend those I have really used lately and those that I know will really work. In this case, you will notice that I repeat a lot of cures. Furthermore, you may notice that sometimes I recommend a different for the same affliction. This is because I consider the “Basket of Elements” of the animal zodiac we are talking about.

One thing that you have to note that Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) doesn’t come in until February 16, 2018. This means that there is ‘no spring’ this year, the change of energies will be quite abrupt. However, if you notice a lot of the energies next year will be a similar to the energy of the last three months of the lunar year of 2017. ‘No Spring’ means no renewed energies which is especially needed to attract wealth luck / money luck / financial luck. This together with the lack of metal of the year is actually quite a bad thing to happen. But I not a doomsayer, and there is no use knowing these things if we cannot remedy it. What you should do is to create spring into your life. You do this by putting fresh flowers with various colors around your house and office on February 4. If you have an altar, place some flowers on your altar also and a small bowl of clean water. Do this before 8am, and remove the water from the altar by 5pm, and use it to water some plants or a plant, or throw it on your front yard. Make sure you remove the flowers before it wilts. You can use roses, but make sure you take away all the thorns, otherwise this will invite a hurtful relationship throughout the year.

Now let me go to my forecast for each of the 12 Chinese Horoscope signs (Chinese Animal Zodiac)


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.

While I don’t’ like to start off with the negative, unfortunately, I always start off the forecast with the first animal sign. Normally, in a forecast using the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), the Flying Stars Formula, and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula, some will be bad and some will be good. I’m really sorry to say that it is not the case for the people born in the year of the Rat. As much as I look for a positive sign, a positive star, a positive computation or analysis, I can’t seem to find one. For the rat, aside from my Feng Shui teacher, I also went to ask other Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants, I even called up the daughter of a very famous Feng Shui expert, but as fate would have it, we all have the same prognosis – THIS IS NOT A GOOD YEAR FOR PEOPLE BORN UNDER THE SIGN OF THE RAT!

Why?

The Bazi Chart, the Flying Stars Formula, and the 24-Mountain Stars Formula all shows negative readings or negative stars. It is only Guru Lama who has something positive to offer, and he said we are forgetting about karma. He said, karma plays an important role, and a good karma can offer so much protection. Furthermore, he added that prayers especially if we have faith will definitely work and offer not only protection but also good energies or good luck. Lastly, we still have the amulets that can certainly help us.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. First, allow me share with you my analysis for people born under the year of the rat.

I believe the keywords for the rat is take it slow but put it hard work and determination. The Rat faces a tremendous number of afflictions this year, but do not fight it but rather have a quiet acceptance and then just rise above the situation would be my advice. First, the Rat has a weakened Spirit Chi and Life Chi and Inner Chi. A weakened Spirit Chi means you have to constantly remind yourself how being spiritual has worked for you in the past, because this year you might find yourself questioning your faith and belief in the higher being. Weakened Life Chi and Inner Chi means you might feel insecure and without self-confidence. You will have to learn to trust amulets rather than continue fighting the flow of energies.

The interaction of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog’s elements with the elements of the Rat are in quite hostile. As mentioned, Spiritual Chi is low, and to address this concern it is very important for you to wear an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE as a gold pendant. This cure will also address the concern the low Inner Chi and Life Chi but it will still be good to wear a the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS & LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET, to help you survive the year.Ksitigarbha

Like any other signs, and like everybody else, you will have to increase your metal energy. You do this by wearing more gold! Having the VAJRAPANI RUEL will also help increase positive thought and welcome positive energies, and you will definitely need this a lot.

Vajrapani Ruel

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

The most dreaded star of the Flying Star Formula afflicts people born under the sign of the Rat. While the #5 Flying Star, which is also known as the 5 Yellow Star (Five Yellow Star) or Wu Wang, can bring all sorts of havoc to those born in the year of the Rat. In fact, being afflicted with this star will affect all aspects of your life, especially the weakest part of your life. It can cause financial havoc, or tragic accidents or even relationship problems. Some people say that the Wu Wang embodies all the negative stars of the Flying Stars Formula. The star could also turn away supporters and friends. This means that this year that you will have to be really cautious, while the star is not as strong as the Wu Wang of 2016 when it afflicted people born on the year of the Ox. It is still quite strong than the previous years. In fact, for some reason the 5-Yellow Star has been quite strong for the last three years. So, people under the sign of the Rat will definitely have to deal with this. The best way to deal with this is to wear a pendant of a gold FIVE ELEMENT PAGODA! This is the only cure for this star, and since it is quite strong, one should wear the 5-ELEMENT PAGODA with a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

The Rat is also sitting on the Natural Disaster Star of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. While this star normally doesn’t have any effect because of the weakened state of the Rat, this star could wreak havoc to a person by increasing its chances of going through an accident. This star will put you at “wrong place at the wrong time”. The good news is you can easily protect yourself from this star either thru one of the following: (1) WEARING A GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa); (2) WEARING A GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT; (3) carry a VAJRAPANI RUEL.

You can also constantly chant the following mantras everyday:

  1. OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  2. OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  3. TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT

As if all these are not enough, the Rat is also afflicted with the Three Killings, and while it is easy to dealt with this star, and I’m not normally worried about this star, again the weakened state of the Rat will make it more susceptible to the negative effects of this star. The effect of this star is to bring major damage by way of three losses. It the past, I observe that these 3 losses are usually wealth, health, relationship. But it can be any other aspects of your life. To protect oneself from it, you can carry the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS or wear three SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

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.

I said that a Rat should also work hard and this should help in making things better. However, if success comes to you it will be followed by malicious jealous people, which may cause the lack of recognition and/or financial recognition for you. To guard yourself from this, you should definitely activate your Jiang Xing, and you can do this by carrying with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

Looking at the Bazi Chart, the health luck of a Rat should be good. However, all the negative stars from the other formulas will definitely take a toll on the mental health of a Rat. Thus, it will be good for a Rat to have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET and an AMETHYST worn either as a bracelet of pendant or a ring. This is especially true for the 46 and 58 years – old Rats. If you don’t have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET, you can also wear the MEDICINE BUDDHA PENDANT and also chant the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA:

TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDANZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ENHANCED ONE IS IN A METAL CASE. 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.

Furthermore, the disharmonious “Basket of Elements” of the Rat also brings in a lot of negative energies, thus it is best to be protected with the LOTUS DIPAMKARA AMULET. This is a special amulet made of jade and consecrated to Dipamkara Buddha (Dipankara Buddha) and is only recommended for the Rat.

Wealth luck is generally bad for the year, but amongst the Rats, it is the 58 and 34-year-old Rat that will have some edge when it comes to wealth luck or money luck or financial luck. It is the 46-year old Rats that needs to take the most caution. But in the end, all Rats should learn that money might be a little elusive this year. To remedy this, I highly recommend either or both the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

 


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.

While it is not perfect, people born under the sign of the Ox will enjoy a good year ahead. This may not be in terms of wealth luck or money luck, but they will definitely have personal and professional success, if they rise above their own temper. In fact, this year the Ox’s biggest enemy will be themselves, especially their temper. And this temper might destroy even their personal relationships.

Inner Chi and Life Chi are both very good, the only thing that is weak is Spiritual Chi, but most Ox has a strong foundation on their faith so they won’t really get affected by this right away. Nevertheless, it is good to protect oneself by wearing a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa).Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva

The Ox might also be a little prone to negative energies thrown to them by jealous people, and they also might be a little susceptible to the negative energies of the year. This may cause some bad lucks and it is advisable that one should be protected by the VAJRAPANI RUEL. Furthermore, CHANTING THE MANTRA OF BODHISATTVA VAJRAPANI should also really help.

Vajrapani Bodhisattva Mantra: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

One of the biggest concern for people born under the sign of the Ox, and perhaps the only major concern aside from the wealth luck concern that affects everybody is that the #3 Argumentative Star afflicts the Ox this year. This star brings in a lot of fighting, gossip, tension, stress that may lead to the destruction of relationships or even court cases. In extreme cases, it might bring hostile fighting involving knives and guns. Make sure that you protect yourself from this energy by wearing a deep RED STONE like RUBY or GARNET. You can wear this either as pendant, ring, earrings, or even as a bracelet. You can also WEAR AN APPLE PENDANT and this should really deflect this negative energy. Furthermore, the VAJRAPANI RUEL is a very powerful amulet to deflect the negative effects of this star.  Having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET should also bring in a harmonious energy into your life.

One of the best news is that the Ox sits on the Big Auspiciousness Star of the 24 Mountain Stars, this is a very powerful star brings in success and wealth. We really need to activate this star because this star also brings in wealth and we all need to attract wealth luck this year in any possible way we can get it, and wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should activate the Big Auspiciousness Star. It is important that this amulet should be in a metal case this year.

The Ox also sits on the Annual Killing Star of the 24-Mountain Stars Formula. This may create some personal problems in your life that will lead to health concerns. However, you can easily protect yourself from the effect of this star by wearing a GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT.

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.

The Ox is also in a confrontational position against the Tai Sui (Tai Suey / Grand Duke Jupiter) and offending the Tai Suey can be really bad. But simply having a Piyao, especially the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO should be enough to appease the Tai Sui.

While the 21 and 81 years old Ox should be cautious of their age, it is the 45 and 57 years old Ox that needs to take the most caution. They will have to protect themselves by wearing an image of the MEDICINE BUDDHA or by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. Likewise, RECITING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA (download The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata)and/or CHANTING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA should really help also.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

medicine buddhaBecause of the strong inner chi and life chi of the Ox they will find themselves ahead of the other animal signs, but one has to stay grounded and remember that failing is part of life because forgetting this will be the sure cause of failure. Wealth luck is bad for everybody, but with the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET an Ox will find themselves a little ahead of the wealth race. It is the 45-year old Ox that needs most caution and thus needs the special protection and power of both the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and of the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


TIGER

1TIGER

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

The Tiger and the Ox almost always has similar lucks. And this year is the same. The forecast for the Tiger also shows some very positive points, of course, while it is not perfect, it still really good. It might be so good that this year you may tend to be aggressive. So, watch out for that attitude, you wouldn’t want to earn the jealousy of other people that may plot against, whether intentional or unintentional, you receiving the recognition or financial recognition that you deserve. To protect yourself from this it is highly recommended that you wear or carry with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND THE LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULETS.

Like the Ox, the Tiger finds itself in a fairly good situation. The “Basket of Elements” of the year of the Tiger are both in harmony. This makes the Tiger to have a strong Spiritual Chi and Life Chi. However, Inner Chi might be a little low, but simply having the VAJRAPANI RUEL should help.

However, the Tiger is also afflicted by the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argumentative Star. Again, this star brings in conflict, tension, stress and misunderstanding that may lead to loss of dignity, loss of good name, and this may also lead to court cases and serious hostilities that involves knives or guns. It is important that you protect yourself from this, by having the VAJRAPANI RUEL and/or by wearing a DEEP RED STONE as jewelry. RUBY and GARNET are quite powerful. Wearing an APPLE PENDANT should also help a lot, and likewise having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET should also bring in some harmonious energy.

The Tiger has the Earth Seal Star from the 24-Mountain Stars, this helps bring in some good chi that adds to a more positive outlook of the year. This will also help you get grounded. Wear a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE (also called Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) to help further strengthen this star.

Furthermore, you also have the Big Auspiciousness Star, and this star will help propel you to success and will also help bring in wealth luck, especially in a year where wealth luck is weak or nonexistent. You should activate this by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and let your Piyao do the chasing for wealth and auspiciousness for you.

It is a good year for the Tiger in terms of their health luck.

Wealth luck is relatively good as long as a Tiger is creative enough. But remember, there is an absence of wealth luck this year so having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is a must for the Tiger to be able to tap into their relatively good wealth luck. However, it’s the 56-year old Tiger that needs to be most cautious will prove to be the most problematic when it comes to money-making capabilities.

 


 

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.

Aside from one dreaded star from the Flying Stars, the year should be good for people born under the sign of the Rabbit. In fact, it’s quite a unique year for people born under the sign of the Rabbit. With determination and hard work, you will definitely come to see the fruition of the things that you worked on the past year. There will be several opportunities for the Rabbit this year, and if you are creative enough and hardworking enough and if you have enough foresight you will see yourself breaking new boundaries this year.

The Inner Chi, Life Chi and the Spiritual Chi of the Rabbit are all very strong this year, and thus will provide a big push for you to achieve whatever you want to achieve.

One major cause of concern is that you have the second most dreaded star of the Flying Stars, which is the #7 Flying Star or the Violent Star! This is a star that causes loss, accidents, and betrayal among other things. This is a star that you will definitely want to be protected from. Don’t fully trust people, even though they may be somebody you have worked with in the past. You need to be extra careful also in all your endeavors. Be very careful with the documents that you sign and always make sure that you read them twice or thrice. While you shouldn’t be selfish, don’t overly share information about what you do also, especially if the information that you share can be used to sabotage your progress. The strength of this star is also slightly stronger this year, so precaution should be definitely made. To help counteract this star it is strongly recommended that you wear a GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT or carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL with you. It will also be extremely beneficial is you supplement these amulets with chanting of the mantras of the PROTECTIVE DEITY KALACHAKRA and VAJRAPANI BODHISATTVA.

Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

The Annual Conflict Star found in the 24 Mountain Stars brings some concern also. These may be little matters that will zap you of energy in a big way. This is a serious matter that you have to dealt with, because this might affect the good luck brought about by the harmony of the “Basket of Elements” of the Rabbit, with the “Basket of Elements” of the year. One best way to deal with this is to wear or carry with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET. Simply having this with you will help in tremendous way.

Another cause for concern is that the Rabbit is also afflicted with the Yin Jia Star. What this star does is that it increases Yin energy of the Rabbit, and it magnifies the Yin or negative energies that arises from your situation. Thus, it may bring bad luck. Deal with this star simply by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. The auspicious Piyao made from empowered gold will definitely be able to “eat” away the negative energies, and add on protection through the gold that is empowered with mantras, sutras, and pujas performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis, and High Lamas like Guru Lama.

Because of your strong Life Chi coupled with strong Spiritual Chi and Inner Chi, the Rabbit need not worry about their health condition this year. They will be able to avoid major health issues. However, the 7 and 70 years old Rabbit may find themselves getting involve in an accident that may lead to a long-term illness. They should protect themselves from it by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET or an image of MEDICINE BUDDHA  worn as a pendant.

The Rabbit’s strong inner chi, life chi, and spiritual chi will be their greatest ally in making money. But remember that wealth luck is really weak if not non-existent this year, thus it is important that you create wealth opportunity for yourself by wearing the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, similarly having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO, will also definitely help bring wealth in so that your hard work won’t go to waste. The 31 and 55-year-old, especially the 55, will really need to boost their wealth luck with the combined powers of the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

DRAGON

DRAGON chinese zodiac

General Traits: Intelligent, full of energy, witty, quixotic, artistic, enthusiastic, inventive and original in thought, enigmatic, perfectionist, humourous, headstrong, generous, egostical, aristocratic, over-demanding, prone to worry, quick-tempered.

The very important thing that a person born under the sign of the Dragon should realize is that amongst the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac signs it is only the Dragon and the Snake that has direct wealth luck / financial luck / money luck that they got from the Flying Stars. The #8 Flying Star, which is the Wealth Star and is considered to be one of the most auspicious star in the Flying Star in the Flying Stars formula directly affects the people born under the sign of the Dragon and the Snake. While this star needs to be activated because there is no wealth luck in the Bazi Chart, the Dragon will have to remember that they are already one step, maybe even several steps ahead when it comes to wealth enhancing factors.

Furthermore, the Dragon should also always remember that the Big Auspiciousness Star also flies into its sector. This is also extremely auspicious because this brings in blessings of success, fulfillment, and wealth.

You have to remember these two because it will take a lot of wisdom and strategic ideas to help the Dragon go through the 2018 Year of Earth Dog. And why is this? Because the ruling animal sign of the year which is the Dog is in direct conflict of the Dragon.

Spiritual Chi and Inner Chi are low and when I say low, I mean they are really low. This will greatly affect your chances of attaining success, be it wealth success, personal or career success! Hard work, determination, and faith in the higher being will definitely be your ‘allies’ this year! These are the things that will definitely help propel you to survive the year. However, determination and faith are affected by inner chi and spiritual chi respectively.

Your very low spiritual chi will leave you susceptible to evil intentions, whether intentional or not. It will also make you disheartened easily. Furthermore, it will make you also more susceptible to negative energies, or Yin energies around you. To counter this, I strongly recommend that you wear a gold image of EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA pendant. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa. The weak inner chi will make you easily lose interest or give up on projects or business dealings, and so it is important to address that concern also by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET!

I would like to share a good thing though. The Dragon’s Life Chi is also good. It will give you the focus and vitality to overcome the yin energies coming from failed progress of projects caused by other people. And also, simply having the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET will definitely give you the bolster that you need to sustain a strong life chi, to help supplement the weak spiritual chi and inner chi. Furthermore, wearing a BODHI LEAF DZI BEAD tied with a RUTILATED QUARTZ bracelet will help bolster the said strong life chi. You will need to bolster it or energize it because you don’t want it getting depleted because of your weak spiritual chi and inner chi.

As mentioned above, the Dragon has to always remember that they have the #8 Flying Star or the Wealth Star. While this star is still dependent on the general wealth luck of the year base on the Bazi Chart, it has to be mentioned that it is only the Dragon and Snake who has this star. And it is quite easy to strengthen and focus the energy of this star to affect the Dragon. You do this simply by wearing the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and/or the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

The other good thing is that the Dragon also has the Big Auspiciousness Star of the 24 Mountain Stars. This star brings in success and wealth amongst other auspicious blessings. One should activate this star by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. But for the Dragon it will help if you can have an image of MAITREYA BUHDDA or HAPPY FAT BUDDHA made of gold empowered with special prayers. This will help bolster that Big Auspiciousness Star, and you really need to energize it to compensate for the other weaknesses.

You are also afflicted with the Tai Suey (Tai Sui, Grand Duke Jupiter) of the year. Maybe you are in direct confrontation position with Tai Suey, and you are also in direct hostile position with the ruling Chinese animal zodiac of the year, and these will bring obstacles, stress, hindrances to your endeavors. The good news is simply wearing a Piyao will help appease the Tai Sui. And so, get a Piyao or better yet get the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO so that it helps bring in other good things also aside from simply appeasing the Tai Suey.

As a foot note to the low spiritual energy, you should remember that going to a temple (lighting some incense) or if you’re a Christian simply going to church and/or praying the rosary or reading the Bible should help strengthen your spiritual chi.

Physical health may be average for the Dragon; however, mental and emotional health are of a concerned. All affected but this is especially true for the 30, 42, and 90-year-old Dragons. You will have to be alert in the first sign of illness and make sure you take a lot of rest. Wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET should help a lot. Likewise chanting the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA should also help.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. 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.

As mentioned again, remember that the key to making money is to remember that you have the Wealth Star and the Big Auspiciousness Star and that having the recommended amulets will certainly help you to tap into the power of these stars. One of the frustration here is that the Dragon has the wealth luck, but it might be difficult to tap into it. So aside from having the recommended amulets, you can also chant mantras of WEALTH GOD OR DEITIES.


 

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.

There are only two Chinese animal zodiac signs this year that is directly affected by wealth luck or money luck or financial luck, and that is the Dragon and the Snake. Wealth luck usually comes from the Bazi Chart of the year and its relationship to the “Basket of Elements” of the sign and the Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula. However, this year because there is no wealth luck to be found in the Paht Chee Chart / Bazi Chart of the year, and no direct wealth luck to be found in the 24 Mountain Stars, aside from the indirect wealth from the Big Auspiciousness Star, the only wealth luck will come from the Flying Stars. This however is also slightly dependent to the year’s “Basket of Elements” and so activating this star should be really important.

Furthermore, the Snake also has the Heaven’s Seal Star, which is another star one really wants to have. The Heaven’s Seal also helps provide the Snake the capabilities to cope with the energy of the year. Because of the Heaven Seal, people born under the year of the Snake will have the most power to reign over their destinies, which is absent from the other animal zodiac.

On top of that, the Snake’s Inner Chi is also quite strong and so it provides it the power to reach success in the Snake’s endeavor. Spirit Chi and Life Chi are quite mediocre, and so it is best to wear a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) so that it doesn’t get any lower which may affect your over-all success. Furthermore, you should also address the mediocre life chi by wearing or carrying with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT

The Earth Store Bodhisattva Pendant should be in gold or platinum. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

As mentioned, the Snake is one of the only 2 animal zodiacs that has direct wealth luck by virtue of the #8 Flying Star which is better known as the Wealth Star. The Snake has better luck than the Dragon in tapping into these energies of the Wealth Star, however, as mentioned this star is somewhat dependent on the wealth luck provided in “Basket of Elements”, so for one to be able to tap into this luck and activate its wealth, it is extremely advisable for one to wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

 

The Heaven’s Seal will also support give the Snake the support that it needs to fulfill all his endeavors. This is an auspicious star to have. And to make this work, it will help if one wears an image of BODHISTTVA EARTH STORE or BODHISATTVA AVALOKITESVARA (also known as Kuan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy) in gold pendant.

However, there are two possible worries that the Snake has to contend with. This is the Annual Conflict and the facing of the Three Killings. It is easy to deal with Three Killings, as long as you keep active you are already deflecting its negative effect which may cause three kinds of losses. But the Annual Conflict has to be dealt with. For the Snake, it will be beneficial to have the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET. Having this amulet will protect you from the ill effects of this star which may cause some hindrance in your success.

Health wise the Snake should not be bothered about possible illness. That is generally speaking, however, the 29, 41, and 89 years old should try to take care of themselves and ensure that they have enough sleep. Whatever will strike them may be due to weakening of their immune system and maybe because of them abusing their bodies. It is advisable for them to have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET so that they can be protected from an illness that may hinder their success.


 

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

Most people born in the year of the Horse had a rough year in 2017. 2018 Year of the Earth Dog will prove to be a little better, but I cannot say that it will be a perfect year or a totally good year. So, to speak, they might have seen the light at the end of the tunnel but that will still have to navigate a slightly bumpy road ahead before they reach the end of the tunnel.

The chart shows that with hard work and determination the year may prove to be a career or professionally satisfying for a person born under the sign of the Horse.

This year will be a year where a Horse will determine what he/she really wants to achieve and have, although money luck like anybody else will be something that a Horse should really work hard for. The Horse’s Spirit Chi and Life Chi are average. It is neither strong nor weak, and they should try to work on it so that it can be their tool to achieve greater heights. To further strengthen their spiritual chi, it will be good to wear a gold pendant image of EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha). For the life chi, a Horse should carry or wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.  It is important that a Horse should not give in to negativity or yin energies, sometimes it may prove to be difficult but they should always look at the positive. And as I always tell my readers who consult me, staying positive is always the first line of defense.

One of the major concern is the very weak inner chi of the Horse. Having a weak inner chi will make success elusive because of your own sentiments. So it is important that when you a big goal, come up with smaller goals to achieve it, then focus on each of the smaller goals first until you hit the big goal. It is also important to strengthen your inner chi, and you can do this simply be carrying or wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

Since the Dog is the Dog’s zodiac friend or ally, it will be a good for the horse to tap into the power of the Dog this year. You do this simply by carrying with you an image of a DOG. This can be a pendant, or as simple as a nice keychain.

dog key chain

In looking for a dog key chain look for something that has a happy and friendly image.

One good news is that the #4 Flying Star, also known as the Romantic and Scholastic Star flies into the sector of the Horse. This means that the Horse will do good in work or projects that involve a lot of research or “studying”.

The #4 Star also brings love to the Horse, this means that single Horses who are looking for love might find romantic love this year. Married or attached Horse will find that their love is blooming. However, this is a star that may also bring in a third party into the relationship, so it is best that you safeguard yourself. For married couple, you can tie an AMETHYST GEODE WITH A RED STRING at the foot of your bed. Or you can wear the DOUBLE HAPPINESS SYMBOL in gold. For single who wants to further enhanced this luck you can find a PAIR OF MANDARIN DUCKS and carry with you the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET.

 

This star also gives the Horse a charming aura, so networking for your business or work will definitely good this year.

However, there is a bit of bad news. The Horse is afflicted with the Wu Duo Star of the 24 Mountain Stars. This is a star that brings misfortune and is definitely a big stumbling block for the Horse’s endeavors. Furthermore, this is almost like the #7 Violent Star of the Flying Stars, and thus one needs to protect oneself from this star. It can cause failure, and thus is it best to protect oneself from this star by carrying or wearing the VAJRAPANI RUEL. Better if this is combined with a gold or jade pendant of BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN (also known as Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Avalokitesvara, Goddess of Mercy, Bodhisattva of Compassion). Carrying a VICTORY BANNER will also help.

Technically speaking you are also facing the Three Killings, which can bring three kinds of misfortune. However, an active Horse will already have dealt with this simply being active. But you can also carry with you the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS.

The Horse will have to be careful about their health, especially since as mentioned they may be prone to stress. This is especially true to the 16, 28, 52, 76, and 88 years old Horses. The only ones not so affected are the 40 and 64 years old Horse. However, it will still be good for all Horses to carry or wear the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET.

Considering that wealth luck is elusive this year, the Horse will have an average wealth opportunities if they aptly work hard and put on wealth enhancing amulet like the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

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.

Despite of the fact that the “Basket of Elements” is not in total harmony with the “Basket of Elements” of the year, a Sheep can still have a prosperous and fulfilling 2018. This is a year where major changes for the betterment of a Horse’s life may happen.

The Sheep’s Inner Chi is quite strong and this should prove to be a successful year for a Sheep who will work hard to achieve its goal. Having the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should further this luck thus giving you a great advantage.

Spirit Chi of the Sheep is of a concern because this may cause waning of your enthusiasm and may cause psycho – emotional concerns. It is best to protect yourself by wearing an image of Bodhisattva made of gold. I highly recommend the EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or the BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN.

 

Life Chi is good thus it will provide the energy you need to course through the year.

One of the best news is that the Sheep has the #6 Flying Star also known as the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star! This is a very auspicious star to have because it brings in huge amount of blessings from the heaven and more that it brings in the mentor star. This means that the Sheep will always have support of superiors and there will always somebody to guide them. It is extremely good to further activate this star by inviting an image of a BUDDHA, BODHISATTVA, or a DEITY to signify that you honor them and also signify a focused energy on you. I strongly recommend that you get one or two of any of the following Buddhas or Bodhisattvas: SAKYAMUNI BUDDHA (also spelled as Shakyamuni), MEDICINE BUDDHA, KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA, GODDESS TARA.Goddess Tara

You also have the Yi Duo Star!!!! This means all the good things may be multiplied. And if you want to activate this star with a focus or having better wealth luck so that money will come in, I strongly recommend that you get either the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. Wearing a PRAYER WHEEL will also fill you with auspicious blessings!

You are facing the Three Killings which may bring three kinds of misfortune. However, an active Sheep will already have dealt with the negative effects of the Three Killings. But if you want to get a cure, I suggest that you carry with you at all times the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS!

Health luck should be good because of the #6 Flying Star where the Heavenly Beings and the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas will protect you. But the 27, 75, and 87 years old should take an extra care of their health. Wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET should be enough to protect you.


 

MONKEY

monkey chinese zodiac

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

It is going to be a good year for people born under the sign of the Monkey!!! The Monkey enjoys an auspicious and harmonious energy this year. Their strong Spirit Chi and Life Chi can help propel them to great heights. This year, a Monkey should follow their instinct and they will also enjoy some sort of mental clarity that will help them move forward this year.

The success that a Monkey will achieve this year is largely because of hard work and determination plus being focus on what they want. As mentioned, a great spirit chi and life chi are two things from within that will ensure their success. Inner Chi might be a little low but either the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should be enough to address this concern of the Monkey.

As if it’s not enough good news. The Monkey, like the Sheep, also enjoys the #6 Flying Star, which is the Heaven’s Blessings and Mentor Star! This is a very auspicious star to have. Great opportunities and blessings from the Heaven awaits the Monkey. While money luck is bad for everybody, the Monkey can tap into the power of this star to attain some wealth luck. They can do this simply by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE in gold.

The #6 Flying Stars also brings in the Mentor Luck; thus, the Monkey will enjoy the support of their superiors. They will also constantly find a person who can help them.

Another great news is that they have Golden Deity star, this is a star that brings wealth from the Heavens and it also brings in blessing and support from the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, and Taoist Gods. Activate this star by inviting an image of a deity in gold. I strongly suggest any one of the following: SAKYAMUNI BUDDHA, AMITABHA BUDDHA, MEDICINE BUDDHA, KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA, EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, GODDESS TARA, MAITREYA BODHISATTVA.

 

The only cause of concern is that the Monkey is flank by two negative stars from the 24 Mountain Stars. These are the Annual Conflict Star and the Yin Jia Xing. These two stars combined can cause a lot of serious havoc that may lead to loss of wealth, grave illness or accidents and even death! It is best to suppress the effects of these stars, and one can do this by wearing the VAJRAPANI RUEL and/or a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

Wealth luck is better than most of the animal zodiac, but this has to be activated with the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET or the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO!

Health luck is generally good for most Monkeys.


 

ROOSTER

Rooseter chinese zodiac

General Traits: Moody, dreamy, talkative, vain, outgoing, extravagant, over-confident, self-confident, attentive to friends, rarely successful, flamboyant, unaided, dignified, handsome, headstrong, arrogant, vain.

If we are to base everything on the harmony of the Rooster’s “Basket of Elements” with that of the year’s “Basket of Elements”, then we can say that this year is going to be simply superb and wonderful for people born under the sign of the Rooster. Spiritual Chi, Life Chi, and Inner Chi are all strong and not to mention, I repeat the Bazi Chart of the Rooster and of the year are in sync.

Personal luck, career luck and relationship luck looks really positive, and thus the year is for the Rooster to take. You will need to magnify your spiritual chi, inner chi and life chi because these are the only tools you have to take on the year. And unfortunately, the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars both brings in some very negative stars, and thus bolstering the luck you get from good spiritual chi, inner chi, and life chi is a must. Not to mention the harmonious relationship of the “Basket of Elements” of the Rooster and that of the year’s should be taken advantage of.

To bolsters these good energies, I strongly recommend that people born under the sign of the Rooster wears a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE, FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET, and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

The Rooster is afflicted with the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star. The Illness Star causes different kinds of disease or weaknesses, but more than that it causes accidents also that may become an illness, that may affect the outcome of your luck.

I remember that a person consulted me before because he was really having a lot of luck that year. Projects come in one after another, but he failed to contend with the Illness Star, which afflicts him that year, and so while good things are coming in, it was hindered when he had an accident that cause him to be bedridden and unable to walk for a little more than a month. And so this star has to be dealt with. You can do this by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET or by wearing a gold pendant of the image of MEDICINE BUDDHA. Likewise, chanting the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA and the WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS MANTRA should help avert the negative effects of the said star.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

White Umbrella Goddess Mantra: TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTHANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NE SOHA

Another thing negative thing that a Rooster has to contend with are the two Annual Conflict Stars and the Reducing Energy Star!

The said stars can create major problems that will disrupt the good flow of energy and will disrupt your peace of mind. So if you’re a Rooster, like the Ox, you should remember to try to keep cool and maintain your own peace of mind. Remember that you have the power to control your emotions and thoughts. Furthermore, the Reducing Energy Star will further make the Rooster, who is already afflicted with the Illness Star to become weaker and/or to become more susceptible to infections and even accidents. The ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULETS and the CHANTING OF MANTRAS OF MEDICINE BUDDHA and/or WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS is enough to handle the concern brought about by the Reducing Energy Star. However, for the two Annual Conflict Stars, it is best to carry with you a VAJRAPANI RUEL and a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

Wealth luck should be good if the Rooster will overcome all the negative stars brought about by the Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars. However, this has to be activated and so I highly recommend the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

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.

The Dog enjoys some very good stars both from the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars, and these stars should help the Dog in achieving its wish for the year. However, as early as now, I would like to clarify already that wealth luck is not at its best for the Dog. While this may be true for everybody, this is more significant for people born under the sign of the Dog. So it is better if a person born under the sign of the Dog will focus more on personal success or professional success that is not financial or money-centric.

A Dog should realize that they have the support of the Tai Sui (Tai Suey or Grand Duke of Jupiter) God of the year, and this should also provide an added boost. However, the Tai Suey should always be appeased, and thus they should wear a Piyao, better if they wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO because of their weak wealth luck. So, they can sort of hit two birds in one stone.

They should also take advantage of a special luck brought about by their Paht Chee Chart or Bazi Chart, and I’m talking about Noble Aristocrat Star. This is a star that seldom appears but can prove to be an auspicious one. To put plainly, it is a star that is similar to the Mentor’s Star of the Flying Stars, however this is more focus in bringing wealth. What this star does is that it brings you people who can mentor you or lead you in wealth generating ideas. To activate this star, it is extremely good to have the VAJRAPANI RUEL or an image of KUAN KONG (also spelled or called as Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Kuan Teh Ya, Guan Teh Ya, Teh Ya Kong, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Sangharama, Qie Lan Pu Sa).

The “Basket of Elements” of the Dog as an animal zodiac sign, is not in sync with that of the year’s “Basket of Elements”! You might be wondering and say that this is lunar year of the Earth Dog, how come it is not in sync? The truth is, and I have written about this in the past, is that if the year’s animal sign is also the same of that of your animal sign doesn’t mean that you are lucky, in fact, it is mostly the contrary. This is because too much of the same thing will repel each other, and this is what happened with the Dog or with any signs for the other years. The only saving grace for the Dog is the good stars from the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars.

The sole driving force of the Dog for the year is their strong life chi. This is the only thing base from their bazi that will sustain them. And as you know if you kept on running on a single source that thing will be depleted, it’s the same with chi, and so it is better to sustain this by amplifying it with the use of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

The Spirit Chi and Inner Chi of the Dog are really weak. A weak spirit chi will make a person more susceptible to yin energies, and it will make you more prone to unseen entities. This can also pull you down from achieving your full potential for the year, thus it is extremely advisable to wear an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE as a gold pendant. Weak inner chi can also take a blow on your perseverance, confidence and determination, this may sound petty but sometimes these are the only things that can drive us to finish something and this year this is more important than ever. So, it is better to strengthen your inner chi, and for the Dog, I would strongly recommend having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET.

 

The wonderful news is that the Dog has the #1 Flying Star, which is also known as the Victory Star. This is a star that brings in auspicious luck and fortune. Having this star will let you triumph over things that can pull you down. Sometimes, being victorious can also bring wealth luck, and this year all wealth luck / financial luck / money luck are indirect and you have to search for it. Being victorious will certainly open doors for wealth luck and you will strongly need all opportunities because as mentioned wealth luck of people born under the sign of the Dog are weak, weaker than most of the signs, except maybe that of the Rat. And so, having the VAJRAPANI RUEL, which also enjoys a lot of miraculous personal testimonies that involves financial luck is highly recommended.

Vajrapani Ruel

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

The 24 Mountain Stars brings in the Small Auspiciousness Star to the Dog, and while this brings small luck, in the long run this could prove to be really helpful, especially if you can really make it active by constantly giving you small lucks all the time. You can further bolster the effects of this star by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO, and since the Piyao will also appease the Tai Sui God of the year, you are already addressing two things in one cure or amulet.

The bad news is that the 24 Mountain Stars also brings in the Annual Conflict Star, and this should be addressed and dealt with right away because for some to reason the one that afflicts the Dog is quite strong. And having a weal spirit chi will definitely expound its effect. For this I strongly recommend that you protect yourself with a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN (also known or spelled as Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Kannon, Avalokitesvara, Chenrezig, Goddess of Mercy, Bodhisattva of Compassion) or with the FOUR DHARMAKAY RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET!

The weak spirit chi and inner chi together with the unfavorable and disharmonious relationship of the “Basket of Elements” and because of the side affliction of the #2 Illness Star, the Dog’s health is not exactly at its best this 2018. Caution is advised to all ages and they would all need to arm themselves with the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. However, it is the 12, 60, and 72 years old Dogs that are most in danger. I strongly recommend that they as well as the other age group arm themselves with the RECITATION OF THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA (download The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata) and with CHANTING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA!

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA!

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. 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.

Lastly, as mentioned, I just would like to reiterate that wealth luck is quite bad for the Dog. But follow the advice above and if possible wear the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and CHANT THE MANTRAS OF THE WEATH DEITIES should really make things better.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

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


 

PIG/BOAR

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

Like the Dog, the Pig’s “Basket of Elements” is not also in sync with year’s “Basket of Elements”. But if there’s something that should be told to people born under the sign of the Pig is that they should be mindful of their attitude. That would be the respectful of saying it, but I will be blunt here, they should not have any negative boastful attitude.

Success will be within reach for the Pig, and they might find themselves successful in any of their undertakings, thus they have to watch out for having some attitude. They should also realize who are really there for them and not assume things. For they might ostracized somebody who is silently helping them just because they didn’t see what they want to see or hear what they want to hear.

The Pig’s Spirit Chi and Life Chi are weak. Weak spirit chi might make the Pig more susceptible to yin energies, thus they should protect themselves with a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE!

EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT

The Earth Store Bodhisattva Pendant should be in gold or platinum. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

A weak life chi will diminish the drive and energy of Pig and thus will prevent you from getting the success that is presented to you by your bazi. To protect yourself from this I strongly recommend, for the Pig, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

The Pig fortunately has the #1 Flying Star, which is also known as the Victory Star! This star would make a Pig be victorious in its endeavors, sometimes this can pave the way to wealth luck. To further enhanced this star, it will be very good for people born under the sign of the Pig to carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL or have the VICTORY BANNER with them.

The Pig also have the Small Auspiciousness Star, albeit this is weaker for the Pig than that of the Dog. This star also brings in a lot of small luck that may spell a lot of difference this year. If you want to make this star constantly active and help chase good luck for you especially wealth luck, then it is extremely a good idea to have the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

However, the bad news is that the Pig is also afflicted with the Robbery Star. Aside from the implication as robbery, this could also mean wealth loss through theft or betrayal of trust. Furthermore, it can also mean people stealing your ideas or stealing your recognition. It is best to protect yourself from this by having the gold KALACHAKRA PENDANT or the VAJRAPANI RUEL.

Because of the disharmonious relationships of the “Basket of Elements” of the year and that of the Pig, the Pig will really have to take care of their health. Depression and/or other psycho – emotional conditions is the thing that may affect the Pig this year. Thus it is best to wear the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. 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.

As mentioned, wealth luck for everybody or for all the signs this year is quite weak. The same is true for the Pig, although the Small Auspiciousness Star, the Victory Star and strong inner chi will strengthen the chances of the Pig to have some wealth luck if they are able to create it. The best wealth luck amulet for the all the Pig is the VASIRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU CANNOT GET ALL THE RECOMMENDED AMULETS, GET AT LEAST THE HOLY TRINITY OF AMULETS FOR THE YEAR. THEY ARE THE GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE; FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET; AND SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO OR THE VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

Note: The Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Lama Atisha Combined Amulet has not arrived yet.

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

Published Disyembre 12, 2017 by jptan2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

 

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

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

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

Recommendations:

Since this is one most the more serious star that we have to take care of, it’s important that people whose houses are facing East or simply staying in the East of their house or office should have the following: Vajrapani Ruel / Kalachakra / The Combined Amulet of the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet and the Lama Atisha Amulet.

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

 

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

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

This star is a very good star. It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also for overall abundance. This year, this is considered as the luckiest star because it will bring wealth where the year shows there is none. That is not to say though, that this star is as strong as the previous years, because it while it brings wealth, it has to pull off wealth from somewhere. Thus, it has to be activated.

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

In your room or office put some crystal ball or 6 White Jade tied with a red string. People who are staying in this sector and people born in the year of the Sheep or Monkey will do well if they invite an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal by wearing their image as a pendant. I personally suggest one of the following: Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin, Shakyamuni Buddha, and/or Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

To counter the effects of this illness star (also of the reducing energy star of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula), it is important that one constantly recite the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA). Secondary cure for this displaying a Wu Lou (also spelled as Wulou) or Holy Gourd and putting it at the West of the house.

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

This is quite auspicious because this will in some way temper the challenging Bazi chart (Paht Chee chart) of the year, especially at the beginning to the year. As mentioned the beginning of the year may prove to be quite difficult for people who wants or have some money – making projects to take off. This is a good star especially for those who have projects that are not wealth – centric. This also gives an advantage for those who stays in this sector in their career.

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year 2018, the Tai Sui (Tai Suey) God of the year is Supreme General Jiang Wu. However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

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

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

 

THE NORTH HAS THE MOST DREADED STAR WHICH IS THE #5 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE 5 – YELLOW STAR OR WU WANG!

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It is also important to get these cures early because you would want the protection energy to build up already.

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

So a good way of dealing with the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal in the East section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the East section of their house, office, building, or room must wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals. But because the North is already weakened having the FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET is also a must.

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

 

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

The best cures for this argumentative star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help. These are what I normally recommend. But lately I noticed that another great cure for this are the Surangama Mantra Amulet and Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant. However, in the past few years it has been proven that the gold pendant of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva) worn around the neck is also a very powerful tool against this star. Furthermore, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA combined amulets will also work well for this star. For those people whose office or bedroom is in this sector should wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva pendant made of gold.

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

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

The Four Heavenly Kings: Getting to Know Four Powerful Buddhist Gods that Helps Bestow Wealth, Success, Peace, and Protection.

Published Agosto 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Today is a very good day and an exciting day (please note that actual writing and date of posting are usually different from each other) for me and in a way for my regular readers and believers of Feng Shui and Buddhism it should be a good day for you also, because today is the day I was told by my Guru Lama to share with you about the Four Heavenly Kings.four heavenly kings

The Four Heavenly Kings has been featured in numerous Buddhist Sutras, one of which is in The Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva; Earth Store Bodhisattva is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Pu Sa. In this particular sutra, Sakyamuni Buddha (The Historical Buddha) directly addressed the Four Heavenly Kings to help propagate the Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva. They were also prominently mentioned in the highly revered Golden Light Sutra.

It is said that those who recite the Golden Light Sutra will be protected by the Four Heavenly Kings themselves. Furthermore, those who recite and keep the Lotus Sutra will also be protected by the Four Heavenly Kings.

From this we can see that the Four Heavenly Kings are powerful protector Buddhist gods, however, as you read on you will that they don’t only protect us but they each also have a specific function which is different from each other.

At this point, I would like to clarify that the Four Heavenly Kings are gods in the Buddhist pantheon; it means they are not yet Bodhisattvas or Buddhas, and they serve the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

Again, The Four Heavenly Kings are Buddhist gods, each of who watches over their assigned cardinal direction of the world. The cardinal directions are East, West, North, and South. In Chinese they are originally known or called as “Fēng Tiáo Yǔ Shùn” (風調雨順), which literally translates to “Good climate”, but in the translation in the Chinese version of sutras they are called “Sì Dà Tiānwáng” (四大天王) which means “Four Great Heavenly Kings”.four heavenly kings 2

In most Chinese Buddhist Temples, one will normally see the THE HEAVENLY KINGS HALL. This is usually one of the first most majestic halls one will see.

The Four Heavenly Kings resides in Mt. Sumeru, a celestial and cosmic mountain where the heavens are. They are also the protector of the world and they fight evil, each of the 4 Heavenly Kings are able to command a legion of supernatural creatures to protect the Dharma or people who follow the Dharma.

Each of the Four Heavenly Kings serves Sakra, the of the devas (gods) of the Trayastrimsha Heaven. In Buddhism there are many heavens, and the Tranyastrimsha Heaven is the heaven nearest to our world, which is called Jambvudpiva is Buddhist sutras.

Although they are more commonly called as the Four Heavenly Kings, each one of them has a name and their specific directions and functions. Allow me to introduce to you the Four Heavenly Kings:

VAISRAVANA (He Who Hears Everything)Vaisravana.

  • Is the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings and is the main protector of the cardinal direction North. He is sometimes likened to Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled or called as Quan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy) whose literal translation is THE WHO HEAR THE CRIES OF THE WORLD.
  • Vaisravana is also known as Kubera, Namtose (Namthose), Vessavana, Thao Kuwen, Wetsawan, Wetsuwan, Wéthawún Nat Min, Duō Wén Tiānwáng.
  • Vaisravana is the rule of water or rain, which is also the element that represents wealth or money. The umbrella or the pagoda are his symbolic weapons. Vaisravana is considered as a very powerful god of wealth.
  • In fact, Vaisravana rules over the famous gods of weatlh, which are the Five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambhala, Dzambala, Jambala, Jambhala, Zambhala, Zambala) namely Red Dzambhala, Yellow Dzambhala, White Dzambhala, Black or Blue Dzambhala, and Green Dzambhala. He rules over the Dzambhalas amongst other Yaksha (also spelled as Yaksa) which are generals of the heavenly realm.
  • Vaisravana is often associated with the colors yellow and green.
  • Symbols of Vaisravana: Umbrella, Stupa, Pagoda, Mongoose
  • Cardinal Direction: North

VIRUDHAKA (He Who Causes To Grow)Virudhaka

  • Is the king of the South. He is the ruler of the wind. And is the god who helps cause good growth of roots or crops.

According to Guru Lama praying to the Four Heavenly Kings will provide us with wealth and prosperity (thru King Vaisravana), success and progress (thru King Virudhaka), peace and harmony (thru King Dhrtarastra) and, good health and protection from danger (thru King Virupaksa). Placing their images at home also serves as one of the most powerful protection amulet one can have.

Guru Lama shares with me a story about how when he was assigned by the Dalai Lama to leave Dharamsala, India to help spread Buddhism and build temple in other parts of Asia, he has personally tapped into the blessings and power of the Four Heavenly Kings.

That was a few decades ago and when he left India, he was only given small amount money to travel and spread the Dharma and eventually build a temple. Guru Lama said he was a little apprehensive because a few years back they just left Tibet because of Chinese oppression, and when he was asked to leave again to spread the Dharma, he was apprehensive and really nervous even though he was excited and felt honored to be entrusted with the task of spreading the Dharma.

A few months before leaving India, he started preparing himself physically and mentally to this overwhelming task. He would always meditate on the teaching of the different sutras and would always draw strength from Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (aka Kuan Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Chenrezig, Kannon) and Bodhisattva Vajrapani. One night in his sleep he received a vision that Vajrapani Bodhisattva visited him and that he was shown the images of the Four Heavenly Kings. Upon waking up he knew then that he would need the help of the Four Heavenly Kings to help progress in his endeavor.

This totally make sense, because if you go back to the description of the Four Heavenly Kings, he will need wealth and prosperity to help build a temple, success and progress so that people will see the good side of what he was about to do, peace and harmony so that he can transmute that feeling to the people around him, good health for this overwhelming task, and protection to ensure that he doesn’t come to harm’s way in spreading the Dharma.

And so my Guru Lama started worshipping and praising the Four Heavenly Kings by making offerings to them and by chanting the mantras of the Four Heavenly Kings. He also vigorously recited The Golden Light Sutra, and The Lotus Sutra (full title is called “Sūtra on the White Lotus of the Sublime Dharma”). And the rest is history. According to Guru Lama he was able to become an instrument into building a temple and building a Sangha (Buddhist community) with relative ease. Money for the temple just kept on pouring in.

Note: To this day Guru Lama still actively participate in building temples. The stipulated donation from the amulets goes to the feeding of the monks or building temples or making of images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

And so today, again for the first time, I want to share with you a powerful mantra that will help you attract wealth and prosperity, success and progress, peace and harmony, lastly, good health and protection, you can recite the mantras of each of the Four Heavenly Kings.

Here are the mantras of each of the Four Heavenly Kings:

  1. For Wealth and Prosperity recite the Mantra of King Vaisravana: OM VAISRAVANA YE SOHA
  2. For Success and Progress in Life recite the Mantra of King Virudhaka: OM VIRUDHAKA KUMBHANDADHIPATA YE SOHA
  3. For Peace and Harmony recite the Mantra of King Dhrtarastra: OM DHRTARASTRA RALAPRAVADHAHA SOHA
  4. For Good Health and Protection recite the Mantra of King Virupaksa: OM VIRUPAKSA NAGA DHIPATA YE SOHA

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

Published Agosto 14, 2017 by jptan2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hungry Ghost Month: A Quick Review and A Special Instruction for 2017!

Published Agosto 2, 2017 by jptan2012

This is just a quick post to remind you that the Hungry Ghost Month this 2017 is happening on August 22, 2017 to September 19, 2017. The eve of the Hungry Ghost Festival is on Sept. 4 and Hungry Ghost Festival or Hungry Ghost Day is Sept. 5.

The Hungry Ghost Festival is also known as the Zhong Yuan Festival in Taoism and Yu Lan Pen Festival in Buddhism. This is the day we pay respects to the deceased by making some offerings. This is also the day where you can do the Ullambana Ritual, which I introduced to my readers last year.

It is said that all ghost, especially the hungry ghosts, will come out of hell during the Hungry Ghost Month, and it is said that they are strongest on the eve and on the festival day itself. The festival day always happens on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month. This is why the 15th day of the 7th lunar month is called Hungry Ghost Day and the 7th lunar month is called Hungry Ghost Month.

The Chinese, especially the older generation have the custom of making offerings to their dead relatives and to their ancestors, but also to all hungry ghosts. The Hungry Ghost Festival is considered as one of the most important date in the Chinese tradition.

As mentioned the Chinese believes that during the Hungry Ghost Month (sometimes simply called Ghost Month), the gates of hell will open to allow the hungry ghosts to go back to our world. During this time, they will roam around our world to eat with us. Because of this they also bring about a lot of negative energies and may cause bad luck and illness and accidents.

To help ease the sufferings of the hungry ghosts, and to avoid causing bad luck to us, the Chinese usually perform ceremonies on the eve of the hungry ghost day, but a lot of Chinese, also make offerings all throughout the hungry ghost month. They will set altars for them and chant mantras or recite sutras that will help give merit to the hungry ghosts. . Monks often throw rice or some small foods into the air to distribute them to the ghosts.

On the evening of the Ghost day, people also make lanterns and float them on the river to help their relatives find their way back to home. The lanterns are usually lotus flower-shaped with light or candles. Some people also write their ancestors’ name on the lanterns.

I have written extensively about the Hungry Ghost Month and the Hungry Ghost Festival. If you are not yet familiar with them, I suggest that you check on the link below and read them to know how you can stay safe.

But at this point, allow me to share with you that for this year’s ghost month, while there is nothing extra significant other than what has been mentioned already, people born in the years of the Snake, Horse, and Sheep should take extra precaution because these three signs are already afflicted or side afflicted by the stronger than usual Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang (#5 Flying Star). As a result, they have to be extra careful with their business or financial dealings because money loss is definitely a serious threat during the hungry ghost month. Furthermore, people born under the sign of the Horse and Sheep ( who is also directly affected by the #7 Star of Violence) should take extra care about their safety. Accidents or crime may happen. It is very important the Horse, Sheep, or Snake should have the Vajrapani Ruel and the Ullambana Amulet, which will be sent to me by my Guru Lama in the next few days.

Before I share with you all the other posts that I’ve written about the Hungry Ghost Month, I just would like to remind everybody that it is very important that you should all make sure, whether you are born under the sign of the Sheep, Horse, or Snake, to protect yourself. There is no such thing as over protection.

‘Welcome the Spring Season’ Ritual to Invite Wealth Luck!

Published Pebrero 2, 2017 by jptan2012

Today my Guru Lama wants me to share with you a simple but important ritual to welcome the spring season that will greatly enhance your wealth luck. The Huan Ing Chun Tien ritual is a ritual that can be done only in years that the Lunar New Year happens before Spring comes in, which is the case for this year.

The first thing you should do is found out your Chinese birthday / Lunar birthday.

To do this you can log on to the Chinese Gender Chart website (please just click on the link and it will land you on the page of Calendar converter) or Hong Kong Observatory site (again just click on the link). Then check your corresponding birthdate. For the Chinese Gender Chart site you will have to input your birthdate. With the other one you have to select the year and it will open a pdf form and you will just check their chart.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE BORN IN JANUARY TO EARLY FEBRUARY TO HAVE THEIR YEAR OF BIRTH CHANGED INTO THE PREVIOUS YEAR. THIS IS BECAUSE LUNAR CALENDAR IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE DELAYED A FEW MONTHS.

After getting your lunar birthdate, count your SHENG HAO. You do this by adding all the corresponding number of your birthdate until you get one digit.

  • For example your lunar birthdate is 11 (Month) – 29 (Day) – 1992 (Year).
  • Take the month first 1 + 1 = 2.
  • Then the day 2 + 9 = 11 (because you ended up with a 2 digit add it up again until you get a single digit so 1 +1 = 2).
  • Then the year 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 21 (again you get two digits so add it up again until you get a single digit so 2 +1 = 3.
  • Then use the month digit and multiply it with the day digit so 2 x 2 = 4.
  • Then add the year digit add to the combined single digit of the month and day to the year digit so 4 + 3 = 7. This becomes your Sheng Hao. If you come up with a two digit add it again so you get a single digit.

 

Then prepare the following things that you will need:

  1. Bouquet of flowers (no thorns). If using roses make sure that all the thorns are taken out.
  2. Three Kinds of Fruit. I suggest the following: 5 pieces Apple, 5 pieces Oranges, 1 piece of Pineapple / 1 piece of Pomelo / 1 bunch of Grapes.
  3. Red and Green Shirt.
  4. Prepare a big Ang Pao (Red Envelope) with a single bill. Any amount will do. It can be a one-dollar bill. Here in the Philippines it can be one twenty – peso bill. Preferably put a new bill, something that is still crisp.
  5. Also put inside the Ang Pao one piece about 2×2 red paper, 2×2 green paper and 2×2 yellow paper.
  6. If your Sheng Hao is odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) prepare three RED votive candles for offering. If your Sheng Hao is an even number (2, 4, 6, 8) prepare one RED votive candle for offering. Make sure it is a small glass so that the wax wouldn’t drip on the table.
  7. Small bottled water corresponding to the number of your Sheng Hao.

 

On Feb. 4, 2017 before 9 in the morning. Go to the temple wearing a red shirt (if your Sheng Hao is odd number) or green shirt (if your Sheng Hao is even number). Bring the other shirt with you as well as all the things that you prepared.

Go to a Buddhist temple. Place the fruits and flowers on the table before the image of Buddha or a Bodhisattva.

In the same manner, place the bottled water, all the Ang Pao(s), the extra shirt and the votive candles on the table.

Then light 3 incense sticks. Kneel in front of the image and say: I REQUEST ALL THE BUDDHAS AND BODHISATTVAS TO PLEASE BRING ME THE BLESSING OF   AN ABUNDANT SPRING AND AN ABUNDANT YEAR.

Then put the incense sticks on the incense burner.

Then if the temple will allow you to light and leave the votive candle light the candles.

Then bow to the image 3x.

Then get the Ang Pao, the bottled waters and the shirt. Leave the flowers and fruit.

If the temple doesn’t allow lighting of votive candles inside, then get the candles also.

When you get to the office or home. Take off the shirt you’re wearing and then wear the other shirt. Light the votive candles.

And throughout the day give the Ang Pao and bottled water to people around you. Any person can receive your Ang Pao and bottled water, but it is better to choose people who have serve you or worked with you or somehow had been a blessing to you the past years.

All the signs with the exception of the Rat can do this ritual. The rat can’t do this because of a conflict in element formation of the bazi chart / paht chee chart of the day.

This is highly recommended for people born under the sign of the Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Rooster, and Dog. For the 56 – year – old who has weak wealth luck this year, this is going to be a good ritual to do to help enhance your wealth luck.

I’m specifically talking about the wearing of a citrine bracelet, a gold pendant image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (also called Earth Store Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa)!
