Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Your Wealth Luck!

Published Enero 25, 2012 by jptan2012

When people found out that I studied Feng Shui and do Feng Shui consulting and audit on the side, they always ask me as to how can they enhance their wealth luck. Again, this is a question that can be fully answered by looking at the Bazi (also called Paht Chee, Four Pillars, Eight Characters) chart of the person. The Bazi is basically a formula wherein you look at the luck potential of a person by looking at their birth date and time.

However, having said this, there are some universal feng shui wealth symbols that each one of us can use to enhance our wealth luck.

First, since I came out with the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, I was really surprised that it work so well with enhancing wealth luck. But the another amulet that is surprisingly very effective with enhancing wealth luck is the Vajrapani Ruel. In fact, it has a lot of personal testimonies that was shared to me by my readers, some of which, I also shared on this blog. But the below recommendations are also quite effective. If you wish to read more about the Vajrapani Ruel, there are several stories on this blog, but you can start by clicking on this link. But there are only limited pieces of the Vajrapani Ruel, and it can be quite pricey for some people, so remember the below tips are very effective as well.

THREE LEGGED TOAD

The 3-Legged Toad. Please make sure when buying this you choose a three legged toad, there are some who sells the image of the frog. It’s not the same. It has to be the three-legged toad and choose the one with a coin in its mouth.

The three legged toad is one of the oldest and most powerful feng shui wealth charm or enhancer. However, for some time it was quite forgotten until Lillian Too of World of Feng Shui popularized it again.

My personal experience with the three legged toad is simply astounding. However, what I want to share with you right now is about a friend’s experience with the three legged toad. She asked me as to what can enhance her financial luck. After looking at her chart, I saw that her wealth luck is already ripe, but for some reason it hasn’t manifested yet. In fact, she’s currently in dire financial problem. I told her to get a three legged toad. Furthermore, I gave her a three legged toad pendant, and 2 months after she got the pendant and the three legged toads which she displayed in her house, she won the grand jackpot prize of the 6/42 lotto (in the Philippines). She won more than 4 million pesos! She swears its because of the three legged toad…and I fully agree.

In getting the three legged toad, please make sure that you place it adjacent to your front door. You can 3, 6, or 9 or more as long as its divisible by 3. Make sure that you have one toad facing the door and the other facing inside the house. Just scatter them on the floor, it can be under your table or chair. Never put the three legged toad on the table they should always be on the floor and make sure that they all have a coin in their mouth!

Wearing a three legged toad pendant is also very auspicious!

You also might want to get to know more about the 3 – Legged Toad from Liu Hai. In a post called: An Unknown But Powerful Taoist Deity Called Liu Hai.

The pendant that gave my friend is similar to this one. Wearing a three-legged toad pendant is also very auspicious.

SAILING SHIPS

In choosing a sailign ship, it would be better if it’s made of metal and colored in gold. Please make sure also that it’s going in and not out.

This is also one of the most powerful wealth charm or enhancer. You can place this on your sheng chi direction and or at the entrance of your house, store, or office. But please make sure that it’s ‘going in’ and not ‘going out’. You can also add some lucky coins on the ship.

However, I need to stress that if your element in your Bazi chart is really high in water or a weak fire, the Sailing Ship may not be the best wealth enhancer for you.

I recommended this to a friend who’s retail store is just breaking even. He’s not making any money. After placing the Sailing Ship in his store, his sales started increasing. In fact, he now has 3 other stores.

THE AUSPICIOUS WEALTH VASE

The Wealth Vase is used by a lot of Chinese to tap into their wealth luck. In fact, if you go to a house of a wealthy person in China, most likely they’ll have a wealth vase hidden somewhere in their house.

This is another powerful wealth enhancer. In fact, when I went to China, I realized that a lot of my wealthier relatives has wealth vases in their house. Yes, they keep not just one but several. One of my distant uncle has one in his living room, another one in the kitchen, one for each of the bedrooms, so not surprisingly, he also the wealthiest of my relatives in China.

The wealth vase is also both a Taoist and Buddhist wealth enhancer. In fact, to this day you’ll see Buddhist temples doing wealth vase blessings or wealth vase ceremonies.

In preparing a wealth vase you’ll need the following:

Any auspicious looking vase with a big mouth and a large body. It should have a cover also.

Five different cloth that can cover the head of the Vase. The colors should be white (metal), red (fire), blue (water), yellow (earth), green (wood). They represent the five elements.

Five different strings also representing the 5 elements.

3 different beans or grains. (E.g. Coffee bean, Red Bean, Rice Grain)

Whole Tea Leaves

Salt

Sugar

Three different candies  or preserved fruits (no menthol).

Soil (preferably from a rich man that you admire).

Money – Five different denominations. (Preferably you ask this from the rich people that you admire.)

Picture of 3 different rich person.

Picture of your dream house.

Picture of your dream car.

Faux diamond or other semi precious stone.

Faux gold coins, ingots, bars.

Incense.

Image or Statuette of a Deity (Guan Gong, Sun Wukong (Monkey G0d), Tua Peh Kong, Dzambhala). They should be made of metal.

Wealth Amulets from a a Taoist temple. (Optional)

First you place the soil at the bottom of the vase, followed by the tea leaves, grains, fruit preserves or candies, salt, sugar, picture of the dream house, dream car, wealth people, and then the money.

Put the wealth deity on top of the money. Take note where its facing and consider it as the front side of the wealth vase. Make a mark so you don’t forget.

Then fill the wealth vase with faux gems, gold (coins, ingots, bars) and all the other ‘ingredients’. Once they filled place the Taoist wealth amulets. Then cover with the lid. Place the 5 different cloth on top of the lid. Yellow first, followed by white, followed by blue, then followed by green, then red. Then tie it with the five different color strings.

Place your wealth vase inside the cabinet to keep it hidden. Make sure that the deity inside is not facing out of the house but rather he should be facing in, thus you need to make a mark.

This is my personal wealth vase. Took it out to take a picture of it, but its hidden inside my cabinet. I chose the color red for my vase because I lack the element of fire. I added another yellow cloth on top because my wealth element is earth. I conduct a regular Wealth Vase Ritual/Making Workshop. If interested please just email me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com.

FAUX GOLD COINS OR INGOTS

Faux Gold Coins, Ingots, and Bars are available in Ongpin. If you can’t find one please contact me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com

If you’re just building your house, it would be great if you can bury 168 pieces of faux gold coins under your main entrance. By doing this you literally walk on them every time you enter your house, thus you seem like ‘walking on money’. Also, you can put 21 pieces of this faux coins at all the entrance of the bedrooms of your house. You can also put 21 pieces of this faux gold coins under your bed.

You can also litter faux gold coins or faux gold ingots at different parts and corners of your house. This is to signify ‘money everywhere’.

WEAR THE IMAGE OF A WEALTH DEITY OR OF THE DRAGON.

Should you decide to get a dragon pendant, please make sure that the dragon looks tough! Also get the one without wings. A winged dragon is of western mythology and may not be totally appropriate for Feng Shui because they’re considered ‘bad’. Also, please remember that people born under the sign of the DOG CANNOT WEAR A DRAGON PENDANT!

Another powerful wealth enhancer is the wearing of the different images of wealth deity. This is better if the pendant is made of gold, because for the Chinese gold is considered as the ultimate symbol of wealth and is also very auspicious.

Some of the suggested deity pendants are the image of KUAN YIN, GUAN GONG (KUAN KONG), DZAMBHALA, MAITREYA BUDDHA (also known as THE HAPPY FAT BUDDHA), and SUN WUKONG.

These are Kuan Yin pendants from my personal collection. Got several pieces of these pendants to be able to sell them to those who are interested.

Back image of the Kuan Yin pendant. This is the reason why I love these pendants is because they have very nicely crafted image of Kuan Yin pouring healing and auspicious from her magical vase, and at the back it has the Heart Sutra (silver one) and a special White Robed Kuan YIn prayer (gold).

If wearing an image of a deity for wealth purposes, it is better to get something that’s made of gold. Something that’s made of a semi-precious stone will also do, but gold is better.

This a Maitreya Buddha pendant, who is famously called as the Happy Fat Buddha. This is made of 24k gold and is from my private collection. I chose this pendant because of its nice facial features.

Personally, I always wear my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. This has an image of SUN WUKONG (THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN) and is also made in 14k gold. On top of that Sun Wukong is also a great protector god and at the back of the pendant it also has the Celestial Guardians (protection from the 3 Killings) and the Five Element Pagoda (protection from the 5 Yellow) and the Ksitigarbha Fireball (protection from the Argumentative Star).

Sun Wukong or The Great Sage Equal of Heaven (aka Monkey God, Monkey King, Victorious Fighting Buddha, Bimawen, Pilgrim) is a very powerful protector and wealth god. He is one of the few deities/buddha reverred both in Taoism and Buddhism. As far as I know this is the only Sun Wukong pendant made of real gold. Have been looking for one for quite some time because I know that Sun Wukong is both a wealth and protector god, however, I can’t find any, not even in China, HK, Singapore, and Taiwan, so I decided to just make my own. If interested to get this pendant please email me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com .

At the back of the Wealth and Master Protection Pendant is the Chinese character for the GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN, and the image of the 3 Celestial Guardians (namely the Fu Dog, Piyao, and Chilin), at the bottom are the Five Element Pagoda and the Ksitigarbha Fireball. This is the only pendant that you’ll get that has all the essential Feng Shui cures. I decided to just put them all in one pendant so that you don’t have to wear a lot and spend a lot of money.

Getting to Know the ‘Great Sage, Equal to Heaven’ Monkey God called Sun Wukong!

Published Enero 7, 2012 by jptan2012

In my previous posts about Feng Shui – 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON FENG SHUI FLYING STAR FORECAST, FENG SHUI-CHINESE ZODIAC FORECAST FOR 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON PART 1 AND PART 2: and 2012 CHINESE NEW YEAR FENG SHUI RITUALS TO USHER IN THE YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON – I made mention of the monkey god Sun Wukong as one of the most powerful wealth and protector deity and as the deity featured in the specially designed WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

A lot of people are not familiar with the Taoist and Chinese Buddhist Monkey God called Sun Wukong and a lot of Westeners think that having a Monkey God is a preposterous idea. However, the truth is Sun Wukong or the Monkey God is one of the most wonderful and powerful Taoist immortal and Buddhist deity. However, Sun Wukong is also one of the most misunderstood Buddhist deity. A lot of people thought that Sun Wukong is merely a Taoist God or Immortal, but the truth is Sun Wukong embraced Buddhism and thus is also revered in Chinese Buddhism. I say Chinese Buddhism because I’m not sure whether he’s recognized in Tibetan Buddhism. But note that there’s also a Monkey God in Hinduism.

In the Taoist story of creation, Nuwa is the goddess who created the universe. It’s believed that she purposely left a blessed celestial rock that through the passage of time and exposure to different forces and energies became the Stone Monkey [Chinese Character:石猴  Pronunciation: Shí Hóu] .

The Monkey God being a creature out of a celestial rock is naturally intelligent. He banded with other groups of monkey. But has always been discontented about the way they live their life. One time in search for a bottomless source of water, they came across a strong waterfall. They believe that the true power of their future lies behind the curtain of water. However, no one dared to be the first person to enter the curtain of water (waterfall) for fear of the current and the unknown. Stone Monkey volunteered to his group but demanded that should he survived the crossing of the curtain water he should be honored as the king of the monkeys. All the monkeys agreed and Stone Monkey crossed the curtain water and found a cave behind the curtain water filled with fruits and flowers. He called this place the Mountain of Flowers and Fruits [Chinese Character: 花果山].

An artwork depicting the monkeys in out side the Mountain of Flowers and Fruits.

He called in his fellow monkeys, told them about this great place and encourage them to live there. He also reminded them of their agreement that he should survive the crossing he will be then honored as king. The other monkeys-young and old-honored this agreement. As the King of the Monkeys, the Stone Monkey gave himself the name: Handsome Monkey-King [Chinese Character:美猴王 Pronunciation: Měi Hóuwáng ].

However, the Handsome Monkey-King being naturally impatient got tired of his Mountain and Flowers and Fruits. He decided to that he wants to learn more about Taoist magics. He left his monkeys and the Mountain and flowers and Fruits to look for a ‘master’. After traveling for more than ten years and after passing several ‘exams’ a master adopted him, gave him the name Sun Wukong [Chinese Character: 孫悟空 Pronunciation:Sūn Wùkōng], and then train him with some magic and supernatural skills. He soon mastered the Transformation Magic and was also trained in Cloud Riding and he is also able to jump 54,000 kms. in a single flip. However, he played with his Transformation Magic and boasted his skills with the other students. When his master found out about this he was banished.

Sun Wukong then went back to the Mountain of Flowers and Fruits where he found out that his fellow monkeys were attacked and the younger monkeys were kidnapped by a monster. He then went to look for the said monster, freed and avenged his monkeys. He was greatly satisfied with his success but realized that he need a weapon worthy of his powers, for the monster that he attacked has scimatars.

In search for this weapon, he arrived at the lair of the Dragon Kings of the Ocean. The Dragon Kings kindly received him but Sun Wukong abused their kindness greatly inconvenienced them. He demanded for a weapon and for an outfit worthy of his power. After several choices he finally found the most powerful weapon in the Dragon Kings of the Ocean stockroom. The weapon is called the Magical Golden Hooped Rod which weighs 8.1 tons. Much to the surprised of the Dragon Kings was able to carry the weapon, something that hasn’t been done before. The Magical Golden Hooped Rod is really heavy, but once you’re able to carry it you are able to command it to change it size, does Sun Wukong command it to become as small as needle so that he can hide it behind his ears. As mentioned, not contented with just getting the weapon, he also demanded the Dragon Kings of the Ocean to give him magical clothes worthy of his power. They then gave him Golden Chain Mail ( Mail is a type of armor consisting of small metal rings linked together in a pattern to form a mesh), Phoenix-Feathered Cap, and Cloud-Walking Boots.

With his new found abilities, weapon and magical clothers, Sun Wukong decided that he wants to be truly immortal. He then went to hell and erased his name and that of his monkeys from the book of hell. This made him and his monkeys truly immortal.

When the Jade Emperor found out about this he called on Sun Wukong intending to punish him. However, upon the advice of the other Heavenly Beings the Jade Emperor decided to just give him a non-existing position in the Heavenly Kingdom. He was made caretaker of the Heavenly Horses. Where he got the title Keeper of the Heavenly Horses [Chinese Character: 弼馬溫 Pronunciation: Bìmǎwēn]. But Bimawen soon became bored again and challenged the Jade Emperor.

Angered, the Jade Emperor sent Heavenly Beings to subdue Bimawen. However, Bimawen’s power is so great that the Heavenly Beings that was sent to subdue him were no match to his skills, thus they are unable to subdue him. The other Earthly Immortals found out about his and they started addressing him as the ‘Great Sage, Equal of Heaven’ [Chinese Character: 齊天大聖 Pronunciation: Qítiān Dàshèng]. The Great Sage greatly enjoyed this title and immediately adopted it.

However, with the help of Sakyamuni Buddha, The Great Sage was subdued and imprisoned. However, he begged the Boddhisatva of Compassion (Goddess of Mercy) Kuan Yin to release him. Kuan Yin realizing The Great Sage’s power decided to have The Great Sage accompany the Tang Buddhist Monk Xuan Zang in his journey to the West to acquire some Buddhist scrolls. Nevertheless, Kuan Yin knows that The Great Sage with his  tremendous power will be hard to subdue. Thus Kuan Yin instructed Xuan Zang to trick The Great Sage into wearing s Heavenly Headband. Using some prayers the Heavenly Headband will cause pain to The Great Sage. Xuan Zang is to used this whenever The Great Sage becomes out of control.

The Great Sage became the protector and disciple of Xuan Zang. Thus earning him the name Pilgrim or Ascetic [Chinese Character: 行者 Pronunciation: Xíngzhě]. Xuan Zang did have to used the Heavenly Headband but he soon was humbled and subdued. Other than being the disciple of Xuan Zang, Pilgrim became the Xuan Zang’s main protector also. More than that he is also the wittiest disciple of Xuan Zang (there are 3 more disciples). He often acts as the strategist of Xuan Zang.

The story of the Monkey King or Monkey God which is depicted in the novel Journey to the West has been made into movies countless of times.

An artwork depicting Sun Wukong fighting a devil.

Another interpretation of the Monkey God or Monkey King.

Despite of the numerous challenges that they came across during their journey to the West, they were still able to finish the ‘order’. Because all of this Sakyamuni rewarded all of them giving Pilgrim the title of Victorious Fighting Buddha [Chinese Character: 鬥戰勝佛 Pronunciation: Dòu-zhànshèng-fó].

One of the extremely rare art work depicting The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven – Sun Wukong as a Buddha. The Victorious Fighting Buddha.

This story is greatly detailed in the novel of the fictionalized account of the legendary pilgrimage of the Tang Buddhist Monk Xuan Zang. It is unfortunate, that Westerners regard it as a fiction. However, to most Taoist and Buddhist believed that the story really happened in the Heavenly Realm.

I personally have a deep devotion to The Great Sage Sun Wukong. But that’s another story for another post.

In writing this I hope you’ll have a better understanding of who Sun Wukong is and why I decided to have Him as the main deity of my specially designed – WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. He is no ordinary Monkey God, he is ‘The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven’.

The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven – Sun Wukong is the main deity of the specially designed WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. This is because othe than being a powerful protector, the Monkey God is also the main strategist of the pilgrims who journeyed to the West. He often the one who thinks for the group.

At the back of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION are the Chinese character for ‘THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN’ and the images of the Three Celestial Guardians (provides protection against the 3 Killings), Five Element Pagoda (provides protection from the Five Yellow Star or Flying Star #5) and the Ksitigarbha Fireball (provides protection against the Argumentative Star). I’m also thinking of looking for a jade supplier and a crafts man who can craft the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT on a Jade. Chinese people has a natural affinity towards jade and a lot of people have been looking for a JADE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

2012 Year of the Water Dragon Feng Shui Flying Star Forecast

Published Disyembre 31, 2011 by jptan2012

The past few posts I talked about the 2012 Feng Shui Chinese Zodiac Forecast for the 12 Animal Signs – RAT, OX, TIGER, RABBIT, DRAGON, SNAKE, HORSE, SHEEP / GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, DOG, PIG / BOAR. However, it is important to know that your luck for the year is not solely determined by your animal sign because it is equally important to look at the place where you live and where you work. Your luck is also determined by the Flying Stars of your house/office.

First, what are Flying Stars? Flying Stars or Xuan Kong is basically a discipline or branch of Feng Shui that studies the annual movement ‘stars’ or chi of a location that may affect your profession, health, career, finance/wealth, physical energy, psychological energy, spiritual energy. In Feng Shui the energy of your house and of your workplace is as important as your animal sign. The truth is Flying Star is also applied to the village, town, barangay, municipal, city, country and for the really good ones they can actually foretell the ‘fortune’ of the country by applying the Flying Stars concept in the world map.

The founder of Flying Stars assigned a specific number to each of this energy, and succeeding generation assigned a name depending on the effects of this energy. The name may vary a little from one Feng Shui consultant to another but they’re basically the same. It is also important to understand that the Tai Sui (Tai Suey) God and the 3 Killings are not part of the Flying Star concept. However, in discussing and determining the Flying Star of the house we include both the Tai Suey and the Three Killings in the equation because they also occupy the one of the nine squares in the Lo Shu Square.

The nine Lo Shu Square are – EAST, WEST, NORTH, SOUTH, SOUTHEAST, SOUTHWEST, NORTHEAST, NORTHWEST, CENTER.

To understand more about the Flying Star, I suggest check out Wikipedia. The offer a brief but clear explanation of the Flying Star. They’re also a lot of books that solely deal with Flying Stars Feng Shui.

THE FLYING STARS OF THE 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON IS AS FOLLOWS:

1. AUSPICIOUS STARS

Flying Star 4 aka Romance and Scholastic Star flies to the EAST

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

Feng Shui Enhancer: For single persons you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can  hang the character of 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.

Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks

Feng Shui Tip: Do not put too much water features on this side of the house this year because it might cause sexual scandals or promiscuity.

Flying Star 1 aka White Victory Star flies to the SOUTH

Effects: This star or chi or energy brings luck to all your endeavors.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Victory Banner / Horse.

The Victory Banner is considered as one of the 8 Auspicious Object in Buddhism.

Flying Star 6 aka Heaven’s Blessing or Mentor Luck Star flies to the CENTER

Effects: It sets the ‘tone’ for the year. Meaning, if you continuously to do good the more blessed you’re going to be. This also means even if you’re Animal Zodiac luck is not so good like the Dog, you will continuously have help from Heaven (Buddhas, Deities, Bodhisattva or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you to achieve your goal.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Crystal Balls / 6 White Jade tied with a Red String

Flying Star 8 aka Wealth Star flies to the West

Effects: It gives you abundance and ‘bottomless’ pocket. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also about abundance.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Faux Gold Coins or Bars or Ingots, Wealth Deity (Maitreya Buddha or Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong)

Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Pilgrim aka ‘Great Sage, Equal to Heaven’ is a very powerful wealth and protector god. He is one of the few deities worshipped both in Taoism (also spelled as Daoism) and Buddhism.

NOTE: To know more about the Monkey God Sun Wukong, read my post about ‘The Great Sage, Equal to Heaven’.

Flying Star 9 aka Future Prosperity or Multiplying Star flies to the NorthEast

Effects: This is neither a good or bad star. It only means that whatever you ‘sow’ so shall you ‘reap’. This 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.

Using the Feng Shui tools mentioned above you can enhance the auspicious stars but all Feng Shui consultants/experts will stress that it’s more important to subdue the negative stars/chi/energy of the Flying Stars. If you’re on a tight budget, you need to subdue the negative stars first before you enhanced the auspicious ones.

2. THE NEGATIVE STARS

Flying Star 7 aka Violent Star flies to the NorthWest

Effects: This star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. This star also directly affects the Patriarchs which means it affects the leaders as well. This means they may face danger with metal arms or face violent death.

Feng Shui Protector: (Only one of the following items will do.) Image of Sun Wukong [Monkey God], Image of Kuan Kong [also spelled as Guan Gong], Mantra Plaque, Elephant with Rhinoceros Image. For people whose room is in the NorthWest and for Patriarchs (which includes leaders, head of the family, entrepreneurs, businessman, CEO) it is advisable to wear an image of Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong or a Mantra Pendant. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is also advisable.

Kuan Kong / Guan Gong / Guan Ti / Guan Yu / Guan Sheng Ti Jun

Front side of WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. This is an image of Sun Wukong.

The other side of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION has the words ‘Great Sage, Equal to Heaven’ in Chinese characters at the top, followed by the 3 Celestial Guardians (Pi Yao – good for Tai Sui, Chilin, Fu Dog), then at the bottom are the image of the Ksitigarbha Fireball and the 5-Element Pagoda. Currently, I’m also looking into making a JADE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, that is because Chinese loves jade.

Flying Star 3 aka Argumentative Star flies to the SouthWest

Effects: May cause relationship problems, numerous bickering, litigation, quarrels and problems/conflicts with authority. Matriarchs are also affected by this star regardless of whether they stay in the SouthWest or not.

Feng Shui Protector: Ksitigarbha Fireball (place this is the SouthWest section of the house or room). For Matriarchs and/or if yur room is in this section of the house you can wear or carry the Ksitigarbha Fireball pendant/key chain. It will also be nice if you can wear a Maitreya (Happy Fat) Buddha pendant.

Ksitigarbha Fireball is a good Feng Shui tool to counter the effects of the Argumentative Star.

Flying Star 2 aka Illness Star flies to the North

Effects: As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. Also affected by the star regardless of whether they stay in the North section of the house are the middle son and people under the year of the Rat.

Feng Shui Protector: Wulou or Holy Gourd or Image of the Medicine Buddha. For people who stays in this section of the house or office, and for the middles sons and people born under the sign of the Rat it is advisable for them to wear a Jade Wu Lou pendant and/or a Medicine Buddha pendant [preferably with Mantra].

The Wu Lou or Holy Gourd is one of the best tool to fight the effects of the Illness Star. As much as possible try to get something that can be opened and hollow inside. You can then place the following items inside-3 tablespoon of Rock/Sea Salt, 1 tablespoon of incense ash from a Taoist or Buddhist temple, small unburned incense, Medicine Buddha mantra, and an paper amulet from a Sun Wukong or Kuan Yin or Kuan Kong temple. After putting everything inside seal it and tie a red ribbon around the Wulou. If this is not possible an ordinary Wu Lou works as well, the addtional ‘ingredients’ is just to make it more potent.

Flying Star 5 aka Five Yellow Star flies to the SouthEast (Furthermore, the Tai Sui God is also in the SouthEast corner.)

Effects: The 5-Yellow Star is the worst of all the negative stars. It brings 5 different kinds of misfortunes and to make things worst, the Tai Suey is also in the SouthEast section.

Feng Shui Protector: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION. Five Yellow Pagoda, Image of the Goddess of the North Star [Dou Mu Yuan Jun] which has been blessed in a Taoist Temple [available by request], Image of Piyao. For people who stays in this section of the house or building, as mentioned, please move out. You also need the following Feng Shui tools-FIVE ELEMENT PAGODA PENDANT, PIYAO PENDANT or DOU MU YUAN JUN [GODDESS OF THE NORTH STAR] PENDANT. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is also a good Feng Shui tool.

Feng Shui Tip: Keep the SouthEast as quiet as possible – no watching of TV, no renovations, keep the lights to a minimum, no playing in this section, no crystals, no digging, no burning of anything, no cutting. If your main door is in the SouthEast, try to use another door, if this is not possible please make sure you put plants flanking your main door and hang a 5-Element Pagoda on your door. Also put an image of a Piyao or Dou Mu Yuan Jun on top of the door.

The 3 Killings flies to the South.

Effects: If you notice the Flying Star 1 or White Victory Star is also in the South. This only means that whatever success the White Victory Star brings ‘may be’ negated by the 3 Killings. However, despite of the name, it is quite easy to deal with the Three Killings and as long as you put the Feng Shui tool to protect you from the 3 Killings you’ll be safe from this energy. .

Feng Shui Protector: Three Celestial Guardians (Place in the South section of the house, room or office). For people who stays in the South section you can also wear the image of the 3-Celestial Guardians or carry their image as a key chain.

The Three Celestial Guardians are mystical celestial beings.

Please note that the official date of the Year of the Water Dragon is on Jan. 23, 2012, thus this will take effect on that day. There is another school of thought that regardless of the date of the Chinese New Year the Flying Stars moves to their new section on Feb. 4 every year of the Western calendar. I personally don’t believe this. I think this is just a tool for Feng Shui experts to make everything easier. It doesn’t make sense that everything else in base on the Lunar Calendar except the movement of the stars.
