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

Published Disyembre 21, 2016 by jptan2012

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

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

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

2017-bazi

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ksitigarbha pendant

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

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

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

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

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

Kuan Kong Gold Pendant

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

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

On the Part 2 of this post, I will discuss what’s in store for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster base on the Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula.

Let’s Talk About the Wu Lou or Holy Gourd Again!

Published Oktubre 10, 2016 by jptan2012

wu-louOne of the very few things I talked about in the blog is about the Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd. But I think it is worth talking about it again, because I notice that people seem to think that the Holy Gourd is only good for the helping to keep us healthy and as an illness cure. I have mentioned this before but maybe it didn’t quite sink in, but the Wulou is also a very powerful Wealth cure or charm and also a very good protection charm.

wu-lou2

Carrying an Wu Lou Amulet is one of the best way to tap into it’s power.

It is largely use as a health charm or cure because in the olden days, the Wulou usually contains medicine. But one has to remember that in the olden times, most medicines are also made of some kind of a wine or liquor, and in fact, it is also use a wine container, thus it also has become a symbol of wealth. In fact, it is one of the most powerful symbol of wealth that Feng Shui experts and consultants normally advice people to display a vase in the shape of a Wulou. In fact, the vase of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled and called as Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Cannon, Kannon, Avalokitesvara) is also shape in the form of a Wulou. Furthermore, a lot of the Taoist Gods also carries a Wulou where it is said some of their powers are stored. And it is because of this that the Wulou is also highly regarded as a symbol of protection.

As you can see, the Wulou is a three – in – one Feng Shui charm or cure.

wu-lou3

But wearing it as a pendant, either made of gold or jade or any other precious or semi – precious stone is my favorite way of tapping to the power of a Wu Lou.

How to Further Enhance Certain Energies of the Vajrapani Ruel for the 8 Aspirations Using Crystals (4): Fame Luck and Health Luck!

Published Marso 30, 2016 by jptan2012

When I wrote the first part of this series, a lot of people sent me a messaged asking whether the recommendations that I mentioned here is only true for the Vajrapani Ruel. The answer is NO. This will also work for other amulets. The only reason that I focused on the Vajrapani Ruel here is because this article is in response to the numerous questions I get regarding the Vajrapani Ruel.

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.

Today, I will talk about Fame Luck and Health Luck. But for those who haven’t read the first part of this post, I have decided to include the introduction here. But if you wish to simply jump to the recommendation, please simply skip the blue text.

The Vajrapani Ruel is largely an ‘amulet’ for protection, but like all powerful amulets consecrated under the energies of a certain Buddha or Bodhisattva, which in the case of the Vajrapani Ruel is consecrated under the energies of power qualities of the Bodhisattva Vajrapani (who happens to be the only Bodhisattva to be described as both auspicious and powerful), they will have different qualities that deals with the different aspirations of our life. Specifically the 8 aspirations: Wealth Luck, Mentor Luck, Family and Descendant Luck, Education Luck, Career Luck, Health Luck, Fame Luck, and Love Luck!

If people ask me whether the Vajrapani Ruel is a very good amulet to help enhance wealth luck or money luck or financial luck, I always take a moment to reply because the truth is the Vajrapani Ruel is largely a protective amulet but there is no denying that it is so much more than protection, for entrepreneurs or businessmen it gives the winning advantage, for employees it gives recognition and career growth. I can go on and on and on, but the bottom line is that the Vajrapani Ruel contributes to the different aspects of our aspirations. Wealth luck or financial luck or money luck is just one of it, although indeed a lot of testimonies found on this blog even the one those I received in my inbox are about money luck. This can be explained though that it is largely because a lot of the aspirations of those who request for the Vajrapani Ruel are mostly about financial problems.

The question though now is whether there is a way for us to enhance the energy that we want to get out of a Vajrapani Ruel? For example, can we focus more gaining wealth luck from the Vajrapani Ruel instead of love luck? The answer is yes.

How?

With the use of crystals or semi – precious stones. By putting on the energy that we want to attract, this will naturally be enhanced by the Vajrapani Ruel or that particular energy of the Vajrapani Ruel will be enhanced by a specific crystal or semi – precious stone or precious stone. So from today and in the succeeding posts, I will talk about the different aspirations and how to enhanced the Vajrapani Ruel to focus more on that specific aspiration through the use of crystals or semi – precious stone.

But this is not to say that one really needs this to attract the energy of the Vajrapani Ruel? The Vajrapani Ruel is very effective even if you don’t use energy enhancers, proof of this is the numerous personal miraculous testimonies, but using energy enhancers will help strengthen or give a focus on the said energy base on energy enhancer used.

As I said, today I will talk about Fame Luck and Health Luck.

But before I talk about Fame Luck, allow me to clarify here that Fame Luck does not really refer to being famous only, but it also controls one’s recognition luck. This is quite important for employees, so that your boss or the management will recognize your efforts or contributions.

To further enhance the Fame Luck of the 8 Aspirations of your Vajrapani Ruel, you can wear the following:

  1. Ruby worn as a ring or pendant, but you can also wear rough Ruby as a beaded bracelet.
  2. Amethyst beads worn as bracelet.amethyst beads
  3. Tanzanite is also a very powerful stone that helps the fame or recognition luck of a person when partnered with a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel.
  4. (Red) Garnet bead worn as bracelet.red garnet
  5. Charoite is a lesser-known but powerful stone which I’m going to write about extensively in the coming days, but for now it is good to know that this is a powerful Fame or Recognition Luck enhancer when partnered with a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel.charoite beads

It is much harder to write about specific crystals to help enhance your health luck, because almost all crystals has a strong health luck component, it simply varies on what part of the body it affects. But for the purpose of this article, I will only write about the ones that have an overall health effect.

  1. Jade especially if carved in a shape of a Wu Lou (Wulou) or Holy Gourd.wulou jade
  2. Gold Rutilated Quartz beads as bracelet.golden rutilated quartz
  3. Green Garnet beads worn as bracelet.green garnet

On my succeeding post, I will talk about the last 2 remaining aspirations, which is Career Luck and Education Luck. Plus a bonus of enhancing the protection qualities of your amulet, especially the Vajrapani Ruel.

Tanzanite (1): A Rare But Perfect Blue Stone For This 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey!

Published Enero 21, 2016 by jptan2012

If you have read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know that one of the most recommended cures for this year is wearing a blue stone. This is a cure for most, but not all, to determine whether you should be wearing a blue stone please read the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast.

Once you have determine that you need to wear a blue stone to supplement the energy of the missing water element, you can choose with the different blue stones, however, I believe that there is one stone that will works best for this year and the coming years. I’m talking about the Tanzanite.cristal de tanzanite (Tanzanie)

Tanzanite is a stone discovered in Mererani Hills of Manara Region is Northern Tanzania is 1967. Although Tanzanite is considered as a blue stone it may slight appear to have different colors when viewed under different light conditions. It is this varying color that makes it a perfect stone for this 2016. But before I go explain the last sentence, let me talk more about the physical qualities of a Tanzanite.

When a Tanzanite from initially as a trichroic crystal this means that it has three colors. The said colors are blue (represents water element), with some very light shades of violet (represents fire), and brown (which normally represents wood but because in this kind of formation it represents earth). When mined or ‘harvested’ before making it available commercially, gems are usually heat treated to bring out the most beautiful color of the stone. Tanzanite goes through this process as well, it takes out the brownish color, and retains only the blue color, sometimes with very minimal traces of violet, which more often than not are only visible to the eye of an expert.tanzanite-grades

Sometimes, although very rare, a heat treated Tanzanite will have a green hue, this green tanzanite are considered more valuable than the regular one. Some say that there are pink tanzanites. I personally haven’t seen one.

It is also important to know that when gem stones are mined, like the Tanzanite, they usually come up as one whole big block, the outer parts are considered the skin and will have the lowest quality, as you go deeper to the center, they are the ones that are considered as the higher quality. As mentioned earlier, to bring out the deepest blue of a Tanzanite, they are usually heat treated, and depending on the quality of color that came out, they may be considered as polished raw, high grade, gem quality. There are different subs – categories but I rather not go into that. In some cases, a Tanzanite is mined or harvested as a high grade gem quality, because of metamorphic occurrences underground, the natural blue of a Tanzanite is brought out underground, this is considered as the highest grade gem quality, and much coveted. But that is not to say that the Tanzanite that is heat treated above ground is inferior. A Tanzanite is a Tanzanite, and there is no Tanzanite that can be considered as low quality. That’s how precious they are.Tanzanite

Furthermore, Tanzanite is only mined in one place in the whole world, and that is in Mererani Hills in Tanzania. So a Tanzanite is considered really rare and naturally it is not expected to last very long. This makes a Tanzanite even more expensive and much coveted. A person who collects semi – precious stones to high quality gems will definitely wish for a Tanzanite.

However, these physical qualities of a Tanzanite are not what make it a much coveted especially for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. But it is because it is a very good stone to have regardless of the year, although again it is a perfect stone for the year. Allow me to explain but I would like to say that it is better that you understand the energies of the year by reading the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Forecast by clicking here.

tanzanite2As mentioned, the year’s chart show that this is an imbalanced year, water is missing and fire is strong as well as metal. Most people will need to have the energies of the water element and blue colored stones usually represent this. However, water destroys fire and while Feng Shui experts are saying we need water, a lot of people will naturally have the water element in their sign, so for some wearing blue stone would mean a high increase in the water energies, and thus destroying the year’s natural energies. This is fine, because the year’s natural energies is predominantly fire and it will not be destroyed but it will be tamed, but since the a Tanzanite as very slight hues of violet, which represents the fire element, harmoniously blending with its blue, then this becomes a great symbolic representation of harmonious blending of your ‘artificial’ water energies with that of the year’s natural predominant energy! This is also why it is a perfect stone for people who need the water energy but cannot not have a small fire energy. Furthermore, having the color brown that is in the case of the Tanzanite represents the earth energy and a gem being natural earth energy, this then nurtures the metal energy of the year, which for the year represents money or wealth.

Furthermore, a Tanzanite is a stone that aurically boosts one’s immune system and is quite good for various physical ailments. On top of it, it helps alleviates and prevent psychological and mental problems, both of which are illnesses that are not as easily recognized. Plus the blue of a Tanzanite, especially, the one of the gem quality is close to blue of Medicine Buddha. Combined effects of these two qualities make it a perfect stone to help us manage the ruling Illness and Accident energy of the year. This with the Illness Suppression Amulet should help us avoid getting affected by the effects of the Illness Star.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

My next post shall talk about why the Tanzanite is also a good stone even beyond 2016.

Incidentally, since I have started my blog, especially the ones that talks about the use of crystals, people have been asking me where they can get their crystals or semi – precious stones or even precious ones. I normally refer them to various suppliers depending on the stone they need or want. However, recently I was quite fortunate to come across a FB page that says crystals, they are called Crystals and Gold. I don’t really know the owner, but looking at their pictures it do seems that they have good authentic natural crystals (not fake one), the ones that have a prices indicated seems to be very reasonable, actually they are very affordable and low compared to other sellers. You can visit their site just look for it. I have referred several readers and they seem very happy with the quality and the price. I just hope they still have Tanzanites!

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Water and Flower Ritual

Published Enero 20, 2016 by jptan2012

If you have read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know by now that the year extremely lacks the element of Water. And so today allow me to share a short ritual that you can do on the eve of Chinese New Year. This ritual will help ensure that you symbolically create the presence of the water element and thus provide some buffer or slight relief from the full effects of not having a the water element. However, it should noted that depending on your bazi chart, this is not a replacement for wearing a blue stone or semi – precious stone bracelet.

Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year this year is on February 8. So on February 7 gather a big jar of water, about a gallon, fill it up with clean water and place petals from 8 kinds of flowers. Do not use flowers with thorns like rose.

On the eve of the Chinese New Year at around 4pm, collect the water and put the petals in. Leave it in front of your altar, if you don’t have one, put it at the center of your house. Then the following day, on Lunar New Year, before 8AM sprinkle the water around your house. You can also sprinkle a little with member of your family. Pour the remaining water on your garden or a plant together with water.

Voila! This simple ritual should ease some of the effects of the missing water element.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Horoscope)!

Last week I wrote about the “2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: An Imbalanced Year Filled With A Number of Good Stars” Part (1) One and Part (2) Two. Since then I have been bombarded with a lot, and I mean a lot, of emails. I would randomly open ten to 15 emails per day, and from that day on all the emails that I have been receiving are all about asking for the 2016 forecast for each of the 12 Chinese animal zodiacs. I’m sure there are other emails but the ones that I opened are all about the forecast for Chinese zodiacs. Sorry that it took longer than expected. I was busy and as always doing the calculations for this is not easy.

In the past years, I have been receiving a lot of positive feedbacks about my forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs or Chinese Horoscope, and while I totally appreciate it, as always, I would like to caution all readers that these animal zodiac forecast are general readings, a lot of your luck will still depend on your Bazi or Paht Chee chart.

You should also read the first 2 parts of this forecast because it gives you a whole picture of what are the overall energies of the year. For example, the ruling star if the year is #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, thus it is important that all people should be careful and protects themselves from getting sick and to be more vigilant to avoid accidents, because the Illness Star also causes accidents. Having said this, it is important to note that people born under the sign of Ox and Tiger are especially susceptible to this because they are already afflicted with the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang (#5 Flying Star). The cures for this are the Illness Suppression Amulet specially made by my Guru Lama, which is highly consecrated and further empowered by a Dharma Pill.

Remember that the Northeast is also afflicted by the #5 Flying Star (also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star), which is considered as one of the most dreadful star, and this year, it is extra powerful because it is strengthen by it’s ‘housing’ direction, the North East. The best remedy for this is to put a brand new Five Element Pagoda empowered by some mantra or sutra amulets that are consecrated or blessed. People staying on this sector and people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger should likewise protect themselves by wearing a 5 – Element Pagoda pendant made of gold. And carry with them some three to five powerful amulets.  These can be the following:

  1. Vajrapani Ruel
  2. Heart Sutra Amulet
  3. Surangama Mantra Amulet
  4. Medicine Buddha Sutra Amulet
  5. Lama Atisha Amulet
  6. Diamond Cutter Sutra Amulet
  7. Universal Gateway of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin Sutra Amulet
  8. Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet
  9. Illness Suppression Amulet

    Illness Suppression Amulet3

    The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

But more than that people with kua number 2, 6, 7, and 8 are also afflicted by the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang because these are people who has a lucky direction that faces Northeast. And common sense dictates that since that they having this in the Northeast will prevent them from accessing this sector thus it is better to get protected from the said star also. to know your Kua number just access an online Kua calculator.

Don’t think that this is going to be bad year, as I said it always a mixture of good and bad, it is never or at least it is rarely all bad or all good, well, maybe except for the case of the people born under the sign of the Ox, this year it is going to be quite a challenging year for them. But I’m getting ahead of myself and if you read on you will see that while the prognosis for the year is not very nice the individual Chinese Horoscope or Chinese Animal Zodiac will mostly have good luck, again with the exception of the Ox. More on this on the actual forecast of each animal sign below.

Note: If you have read your part and wish to skip the other animal zodiac please go to the bottom part for some added reminders. I initially wanted to post this separately but realized that it is better to post this as a whole to avoid repetitions of some parts.

So as always, let me begin with the…

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, spendthrift, insecure, usually successful, tend to gossip.

Last year should have been a generally good year for people born under the sign of the Rat. The good news is good things will continue to happen to the people born under the year of the Rat, because this is generally a good year for you. As mentioned in the first part of the forecast, we are lacking for the water element, but a Rat born person’s basic element is Water and so this already gives you some advantage.

kalachakra pendant2

The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

As long as you continue to be hard working and optimistic you will see that you will be quite lucky this year. But it is quite important to not let your guard down, because you are afflicted with the #7 Flying Star (Violent Star). This means that you have to be careful of people who might get jealous and wish you to do you harm, thus it is very important for you not to be flamboyant about your successes. Furthermore, this might manifest in a way that you might be cheated or robbed. You might also encounter some kind of violence. Thus it is very important for you to have one of the following: Vajrapani Ruel, Kalachakra Pendant (gold) (to understand more about the Kalachakra you can read my post last year about the 2015 Holy Trinity of Protection), Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Base on the 24 Mountain Stars formula, you are afflicted with a Yin House Star. This might hinder your successes by creating some sort of mental backlog, such as depression. But if you already have the Vajrapani Ruel, Kalachakra Pendant (gold), or Surangama Mantra Amulet, you no longer need to worry about this star. But should you wish to deal with this particular star separately you can also wear a Prayer Wheel.

You are also facing the Three Killings, and as I always said, this is something that is quite easy to deal with. Just be busy and you would have already dealt with this. Or you can carry the image of the 3 Celestial Guardians.

3 CELESTIAL GUARDIAN W.IMPLEMENTS (TLT-GOLD)

The Three Celestial Guardians are mystical celestial beings.

This year you are also extremely blessed with a strong Lung – Ta or personal Wind Horse luck, this should aid you in achieving your goals. And having this has already given you some advantage against your ‘competitors’ unless of course they are also born under the year of the Rat. With this always remember that you can be quite successful this year.

medicine buddha pendantbAs mentioned all people are somewhat afflicted by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Stars, which has become the ruling star of the year. The Rat is no exception to this affliction, thus it is quite important that you either have the Illness Star Suppression Amulet, or a Medicine Buddha Mantra Amulet or a Medicine Buddha Pendant. A Holy Gourd or Wu Lou (also spelled as Wulou) will act as a secondary cure for this star.

 

It should be noted that the 8, 32, 44, and 68 years old Rats are the most afflicted.

As mentioned, success is quite within reach of a person born under the sign of the Rat. But more than that wealth luck is also quite within reach especially for the 44 and 68 – years – old Rats. The rest of the Rats should be a little more careful in their investments but wealth is also within their reach if they play their cards wealth. To enhance wealth luck you might want to wear an image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha.

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.

Since I started writing my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, I have been warning you, my reader, about the unusually strong #5 Flying Star (also called Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang) which flies to the Northeast sector this year. As you might have known already the North East sector is the sector that rules or houses the Ox and Tiger, that means these two signs are severely affected by the already dreadful Wu Wang, made more dangerous because it is further strengthen by the energies of the Northeast sector. This affliction together with the energies of the year with the stars of the 24 Mountain Stars has made this year of the Fire Monkey a very challenging one for people born on the year of the Ox, with the Tiger being ‘saved’ by a good star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. Having said that people born under the year of the Ox will have to find their inner strength in dealing with things. This year your motto should be PERSEVERE AND THINGS WILL GET BETTER, and remember one year is such a short time, little did you know the year that has just started is about to end, and keep your eye on a good 2017 (base on the Flying Stars formula) and don’t focus on the bad 2016. Meaning this year should go aim for the long term and not the short term.

One other concern though is that people born under the sign of the Ox has conflicting basic elements with that of the year’s (2016) elements base of the Bazi. Thus Ox born people will find their life chi and spirit chi quite mediocre, if not weak, thus creating more blockages for the year. Thus it is important to counter this by mentally reminding yourself to be strong.

I have said this across all the forecast for the year but it is really worth repeating. The Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang is much stronger this year, and it is a dreaded star because it can bring about loss of money, illness so coupled with the illness star that rules the year Ox born people becomes more susceptible to illness and accidents also, not to mention it can bring tremendous relationships and other forms of bad luck. Thus all Ox born people, as well as Tiger will need to put a Five – Element Pagoda in the Northeast sector of their house or office. I strongly suggest using a new one for the year and something that can be opened. On the top part of the Five Element Pagoda, instead of the usual soil, put a crystal, a clear quartz will do. At the bottom part of the 5 – Element Pagoda put 3 – 5 of the following amulets:

 

 

Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet

THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder with the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside it.

Furthermore, it is very important that all Ox (and Tiger) born people to wear a 5 – Element Pagoda Pendant made of gold. It has to be made of gold. Admittedly, this is quite difficult to find, as of to date, I only know of two possible sellers, one is Lillian Too’s Feng Shui Megamall (click here) and the other one is a private seller that is made to order. Although Lillian Too’s is more expensive, the craftmanship is so much better. I have also asked my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and his Taoist Priest friend about an alternative cure for this, but to this date most, if not all, senior, non – commercialized Feng Shui experts agree that only the Five – Element Pagoda remains to be the most effective and ONLY cure. For this year we further empower it with the power of powerful holy amulets. So aside from wearing the Five – Element Pagoda pendant in gold, it is also imperative that you carry three to five of the above mentioned amulets.

Likewise, everybody who stays in the Northeast sector of their office or building should put the Five – Element Pagoda empowered by three to five holy amulets and should wear the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant and carry three to five of the holy amulets with them at all times.

But the problem doesn’t stop there, as mentioned above the basic element of an Ox person conflicts with the elements of the year, thus creating more problems for Ox people, thus it is important that an Ox person should have an additional protection by wearing a Kalachakra Pendant made of gold or clear quartz or jade (to understand more about the Kalachakra you can read my post last year about the 2015 Holy Trinity of Protection). Plastic Kalachakra pendants will not work. For Ox people who has low water element on their chart, or high metal and high fire elements should also make sure that they wear a blue stone as bracelet or pendant. I strongly suggest the stone Tanzanite for it’s special energies. More on that on succeeding posts.

The Ox’s personal Lung – Ta is also weak, thus making you more susceptible to defeat or loser attitude. To counter this you can wear a Wind Horse Pendant made of gold or carry the Vajrapani Ruel.

Spirit Chi is also weak and this will make people born under the sign of the Ox susceptible to negative energies. Wearing a Prayer Wheel should help counter this.

As I said, all Ox born people should be more careful about accidents and illness, because the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang has made you more susceptible to the illness star. However, having said that the 7, 31, and 67 – years – old Ox person should be even more careful. Again wearing an image of the Medicine Buddha or having the Medicine Buddha Mantra Amulet or Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel or Illness Suppression Amulet should help avert some big problems. But it might be good for all Ox born people to chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA or recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra. But let me stress here that although I have put emphasis on the 7, 31, and 67 – years – old Ox people, it doesn’t mean that they are the only ones who will get affected. All Ox people will be severely affected by this star because you also house the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang.

kuan kong gold pendant

As expected, wealth luck might be quite difficult for Ox – born people, with exception of the 43 and 64 – years – old Ox person. However, for the rest of the Ox, it is quite important to take caution in their investments because wealth luck and financial luck, unlike in 2015, will be quite elusive for you. Thus it is quite beneficial for you to have some wealth amulets like the THREE LEGGED TOAD, image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha. The 55 – year – old Ox will suffer the most ‘bad luck’ this year in terms of Wealth, so it is important that aside from having the image of the wealth gods or amulets you should wear a Kalachakra pendant made of gold.

Ox born people who are into sales and service industry will be hit the hardest with the wealth and financial bad luck. Thus it is also quite important that you wear a Prayer Wheel and Kuan Yin with Sutra or Kuan Yin Jade pendant.

Likewise, Ox born people with high water element in their chart will experience some reprieve from this bad luck. However, Ox born people with no water and high earth or metal or fire element should take extra caution. Because these contributes in the strengthening of bad luck and misfortunes cause by the Wu Wang. As such, aside from wearing a blue stone, I strongly recommend that you wear a Wu Lou w/c is a secondary illness cure but it also symbolizes the liquid of health and wealth. Thus this was use by Kuan Yin in pouring his/her wealth and health blessing. The Wulou or Holy Gourd should be made of a blue or green stone.

Lastly, the Tai Sui also indirectly affects the Ox so it is good to carry with you an image of the PiYao (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie).

As you see, this year’s forecast for the people born under the sign of the Ox is quite bad. In fact, this is the worst I have ever seen since I started writing my annual forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Horoscope). However, luckily for us, our Zodiac Ally the Rooster will have a wonderful year. So it will be good to surround yourself with people born under the sign of the Rooster or surround yourself with images of Rooster. In fact, wearing an image of a Rooster made of gold or real jade should help a lot in alleviating your luck, especially if you ensure that you are protected.

 

TIGER

1TIGER

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

Like the Ox, the Tiger is also afflicted with the much stronger and very dreaded 5 – Yellow Star or Wu Wang or #5 Flying Star, which causes great misfortune especially financial loss. Thus all Tiger born people, as well as Ox, will need to put a Five – Element Pagoda in the Northeast sector of their house or office. I strongly suggest using a new one for the year and something that can be opened. On the top part of the Five Element Pagoda, instead of the usual soil, put a crystal, a clear quarts will do. At the bottom part of the 5 – Element Pagoda put 3 – 5 of the following amulets:

  1. Vajrapani Ruel
  2. Surangama Mantra Amulet
  3. Heart Sutra Amulet
  4. Illness Suppression Amulet
  5. Medicine Buddha Mantra Amulet
  6. Lama Atisha Amulet
  7. Diamond Cutter Mantra Amulet
  8. Universal Gateway of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin Sutra Amulet
  9. Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet

Furthermore, it is very important that all Tiger (and Ox) born people to wear a 5 – Element Pagoda Pendant made of gold. It has to be made of gold because you need the energy of the metal coupled with the yang energy of gold to suppressed the energy of the Wu Wang. . Admittedly, this is quite difficult to find, as of to date, I only know of two possible sellers, one is Lillian Too’s Feng Shui Megamall (click here) and the other one is a private seller that is made to order. I have also asked my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and his Taoist Priest friend about an alternative cure for this, but to this date most, if not all, senior, non – commercialized Feng Shui experts agree that only the Five – Element Pagoda remains to be the most effective and ONLY cure. For this year we further empower it with the power of powerful holy amulets. So aside from wearing the Five – Element Pagoda pendant in gold, it is also imperative that you carry three to five of the above mentioned amulets.

Likewise, everybody who stays in the Northeast sector of their office or building should put the Five – Element Pagoda empowered by three to five holy amulets and should wear the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant and carry three to five of the holy amulets with them at all times.

But unlike the Ox, Tiger born people will have a strong Lung – Ta this 2016, therefore this will help bring some success for them. Wealth luck will also be quite good for some Tiger born people, and the key to your success is to look for a mentor or an ‘elder’ who can guide you through things. Do not do everything on your own.

You are also in direct conflict with the Tai Suey God of the year, so it is important that you carry with you an image of the Pi Yao, which is the best cure to pacify the Tai Sui God.

But the very good news for the Tiger born people is the presence of the Big Auspicious star on its side. This, I would say, is the saving grace of the Tiger; because of this single powerful star you have the chance to become very successful this year. To help strengthen the effect of this star, it is highly recommended that you wear an image of one of the following: Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, Maitreya Buddha or Kuan Kong.

But like the Ox, because of the presence of the Five – Yellow Star, the Tiger born people are also made more susceptible to the Illness Star or #2 Flying Star. Thus you will have to be care about your health and safety, do not engage in dangerous sports and activities. All Tigers are affected but the 30 and 54 – years – old Tigers should take extra more precaution. The best cure for this is to have one of the following: Illness Star Suppression Amulet, Medicine Buddha Pendant, and Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel. It is also important for you to chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA – or recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra.

Wealth luck for Tigers ranges from moderate to quite lucky. 18, 54, and 78 – years – old Tiger born people will do quite well in creating money for themselves. To strengthen wealth luck it is quite important for you to wear a Citrine with a 9 – Eye DZI or a Maitreya Buddha Pendant.

 

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.

Lucky! You are quite lucky this year. Your innate capability to appear nice will bring you to success and good luck this year. You have a natural charm that you can use on people and they will be quite supportive towards you. However, don’t let any of these get into your head and never abuse people who help you get to your good luck or success.

Because of the natural alignment of the year’s energies, the first part of the year might give you a few bumps and pitfalls but keep a positive disposition in life and you’ll find the year filled with wonderful good surprises for you. But remember, two Big Auspicious stars flank you and this alone should make the year almost perfect for you. Never mind that the Reducing Star tempered it. But even the reducing star can easily be remedied. All you have to do is to wear and spin a prayer wheel and carry with you a Surangama Mantra Amulet, or a gold HUM pendant and the Reducing Star as if never existed at all. And to enhance the Big Auspicious Stars you can simply chant the Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantras:

  1. OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PAHT
  2. OM HANU PASHA BAHRA HE YE SOHA

But you also have the #9 Multiplying and Future Star, so pray that you have deposited quite some good karma in the past so that you may reap it’s good luck now. And try to sincerely do good deeds, because the more good deeds you do now the more luck you’ll have.

Your Life Chi is quite weak though, so remember your greatest enemy this year is losing hope, but simply wearing one of the following should help remedy this problem: Surangama Mantra Amulet, Kuan Yin, Om Pendant (gold), Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet.

Like everyone else you’ll be affected by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, especially if you are a 29, 53, and 89 – years – old Rabbit. To remedy this simply wear the Illness Suppression Amulet made by my Guru Lama.

Wealth luck will be quite attainable, but the 20, 41, 65 years – old Rabbit you will need a little push. Simply get yourself an image of Kuan Kong or Maitreya Buddha and this would have solve the problem.

 

DRAGON

DRAGON chinese zodiac

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

Remember these things – Big Auspicious Stars, Small Auspicious Stars (2 of them) that’s what you have this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. Needless to say this is quite a lucky year for you. Not only in terms of being auspicious but also with success and different opportunities arising simply for you. Not to mention you also have the #1 Flying Star or the White Victory Star and is on the side of #9 Flying Star and #6 Flying Star also known as Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star! How lucky can one person get????

This will be a year that is extremely smooth sailing and you will feel like you’re on a ship where the current and the wind are all going towards one direction. And that direction is the direction of success, wealth, auspiciousness, and opportunities!

There is no need for you for any charm or amulet unless of course you simply want to be ‘greedy’ in a good way and further enhanced these energies. All you have to do is carry the Vajrapani Ruel, or wear an image of one of the following: Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, Amitabha Buddha, or Maitreya Buddha.

The only two things that you need to be wary about is that you have a weak Lung – Ta and Life Chi. But the weak Lung – Ta is easily remedied by wearing or carrying the image of the Lung – Ta or Windhorse or a Surangama Mantra Amulet. And the weak life chi, which may manifest by making yourself less competitive for fear of failure, is easily remedied by wearing the Deity Life Chi Amulet. These are your biggest afflictions for the year so to ensure a great year it is important for you to deal with them.

And like everybody else, you are affected by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, especially Dragons that are 16 and 53 – years – old this year. To remedy this simply wear the Illness Suppression Amulet and chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA.

In terms of wealth luck, as mentioned all Dragons will have this, but the ones who are to really benefit from this are the 28 and 64 – years – old Dragons. The 53 – year – old Dragon will have this provided he maintains an upbeat and positive outlook. To further enhance this luck, simply wear the image of Kuan Kong.

 

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.

Another sign that should be quite lucky despite the presence of some unlucky star is the Snake; the Snake’s secret friendship with the Monkey should bring in some luck for the Snake.

The Snake has the #1 Flying Star, which is the White Victory Star, this star is sure to bring victory to most, if not all, the Snake’s undertakings. The Snake will naturally have the winning edge this year. To further enhance this star, it will be nice for you to carry or wear the Victory Banner.

You also have a Small Auspicious Star with you, and thus it should bring some career luck for you.

But you are in side conflict with the Three Killings, and simply carrying an image of the Three Celestial Guardians should remedy this, or simply keep yourself busy.

Your basic element is also in tune with the element of the year’s bazi or Paht Chee chart and so this should give you added energies by way of strengthening your personal confidence and inner strength. Your spirit chi is also quite blooming, and so you are not quite susceptible to negative chi especially those who are thrown to you by angry or jealous people or people with ill intent.

Again, like everyone else, you are also affected by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star that causes not only illness but also accidents. Greatly affected by this are 15, 51, and 75 – years –old Snake. To counter this simply wears the Illness Suppression Amulet.

 

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

You are the only animal sign the benefits from the powerful combination of the 168 powerful combos. The 168 powerful combos are the #1, #6, #8 Flying Stars or namely the White Victory Star, the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star, and Wealth Star. For all intent and purpose you should have been the luckiest sign amongst all the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac but the presence of the some unwanted star from the 24 Mountain Star Formula tempered this luck.

Nevertheless, it is still a progressive year for the Horse. The White Victory Star makes sure that you maintain some winning edge in all your endeavors, the #6 Flying Star will bring in the blessings of some powerful mentors and the blessings of Heavenly Beings and Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Plus Wealth Luck is definitely within your reach. To further enhance these stars you can wear the Victory Banner, an image of Kuan Yin (preferably with Sutra) and a Three – Legged Toad.

The only thing that prevented you to be the luckiest sign is the fact that you have the 3 – Killings and a Xa Xing (please refer to the part 2 of the forecast to know what is Xa Xing). Again the Three Killings is not so much of a problem, all you have to do is keep yourself busy or carry the image of the Three Celestial Guardians. The Xa Xing is entirely different thing, you will have to take care of this because can this bring some great misfortune. For this you need to carry the Vajrapani Ruel, or Kalachakra Pendant in gold (to understand more about the Kalachakra you can read my post last year about the 2015 Holy Trinity of Protection). You can also put a Prayer Wheel near you and rotate it everyday as an added protection.

And like everyone else health luck is affected because the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes both illness and accidents is the ruling star of the year. The 2, 38, and 62 – years – old Horses should take extra precaution. To counter this it is quite important for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet and chant the mantra of Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADSA SAMUGATE SOHA.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Lastly, although your wealth luck is good, remember that because of the natural energies of the year you have to be careful about how you handle your finances. It will be good if you carry a Wealth Lock amulet, you can wear this as a pendant, and if it’s made of gold so much the better.

 

SHEEP / GOAT

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.

People born in the year of the Sheep or Goat should an almost balanced mixture of good and bad luck this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. You have a very powerful Lung – Ta or Windhorse luck this year and this should help you get your way into being successful, and for because you have the #8 Flying Star, which is also known as the Wealth Star, expect money to be quite within reach, especially if you wear some gold and a blue semi – precious stone as a bracelet. To further enhance this wealth luck, you can also wear an image of Maitreya Buddha or the Happy Fat Buddha or a Three – Legged Toad.

However, you are slightly weakened by a medium strength life chi and spirit chi. You might say that this is simply medium strength and it shouldn’t be so bad. True, but in the case of person born under the sign of the Sheep, this is quite a serious matter, especially if we take into consideration the general energies of the year. One way to contract this medium strength life chi is for you to always try to keep a positive outlook, or simply wear a Deity Life Chi Amulet or a Kuan Kong. To counter the effects of having a medium strength spirit or spiritual chi, you can wear a Kuan Yin (preferably with Sutra).

 

The #8 Flying Star may also be tempered by the fact that you have the Three Killings on your left side of the chart, and a Yin House Star and an Annual Xa Xing. . The Three Killings is easily remedied simply by carrying an image of the Three Celestial Guardians, and the Yin House can be remedied by wearing a Prayer Wheel or Kuan Yin with Sutra pendant, but the Annual Xa Xing, which is a serious problem that can lead to serious set backs and bad luck should be dealt with. Carry the Vajrapani Ruel or wear an Amitabha Buddha pendant for this.

Like everyone else, you are definitely also affected by the #2 Flying Star known as the Illness Star. But the 37 and 61 – years – old year of the Sheep should be the one who take utmost care. Thus it is important for you to have the Illness Suppression Amulet.

 

MONKEY

monkey chinese zodiac

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

The first part of the year should prove to be a little challenging for the people born under the sign of the Monkey, but that is not to say that the year is going to be bad one for you. On the contrary, this is going to be a good year for the Monkeys. The slight struggle in the first part of the year is due to the conflicting energies with the basic element energy of the Monkey and of the year, but simply knowing this should provide you with some buffer already and remember that good things are about to come your way, and that this struggle is simply a temporary struggle. To help you with the initial struggle and totally obliterate it and pave for an earlier success it will be good if you can have either a Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant, Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, Kuan Kong, or a Prayer Wheel. Again, just one of these will do.

One of the most wonderful news for people born under the sing of the Monkey is that you have the #8 Flying Star, which is one of the most coveted star! If you read the first two parts of this forecast, or if you’re familiar with Feng Shui, you might remember that the #8 Flying Star is also called the Wealth Star, and as the name implies it brings wealth luck or financial luck or money luck to you! It will be great if you can enhance this luck by wearing an image of Maitreya Buddha or a Three Legged Toad!

What’s more since the star lands in a sector that is ruled by the earth element, it is quite stronger this year, but just in case you want to give it a further boost, you can wear a citrine bracelet further enhanced by the 9 – Eye DZI bead.citrine dzi piyao

However, the Tai Sui God of the year also resides in your sector, and he can be either a great push for you to have a good luck or you can earn his ire and send you tons of bad luck. But the good thing is appeasing him is quite easy, all you have to do is carry an image of a Piyao (also called Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie) or the image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun.

One other slight hump in the journey to great success is that you have a Yin House Star also. But simply wearing (again) a Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant or Prayer Wheel this would have been managed already.

ammonite pendant_388x470

An Ammonite Fossilized Shell is a very powerful tool to negate negative energies. It also helps us achieve our goal and bring us financial and career success. However, ammonites are very expensive because this fossil actually preserved the shells formed by prehistoric cephalopods, which are extinct distant relatives of squids. I have two ammonites. I got one that’s really affordable and I thought I got a good discount, it turn out that its a fake ammonite. I then looked for a real ammonite and eventually found one but it did cost quite a small fortune. But I’m happy with it because fake ammonites are basically useless.

However, this is a year that your life chi and personal lung – ta or Windhorse luck is weak. A weak life chi might lead to confusion that in turn will lead to wrong decisions, and it also might make you a bit easier to put down. To manage this you can simple wear an Ammonite (just make sure it’s real because there are a lot of fake ammonite. An Ammonite is also a good wealth amulet) or the Vajrapani Ruel. For a weak Lung – Ta or Windhorse luck you can also wear a Windhorse pendant or carry the 9 – Ringed Sword of Kuan Kong. But the great news is your Spirit chi is quite strong, and this means that you won’t be affected by the negative energies around you.

 

But like what I have been repeating again and again in this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, all of us, everybody is affected by the #2 Flying Star, which has become the ruling star of the year because it landed on the center, this star causes illness and accidents so you should also be careful and everyone should wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha. But the 24, 60 and 84 – years – old Monkeys should pay extra caution. It will do well if they chant the mantra of the Medicine Buddha everyday. The mantra is – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. Or you can recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra.

It is worth mentioning here that while all Monkeys will have great financial or wealth luck, it is the 24 and 48 – years – old Monkeys that will find themselves totally reaping this luck!

 

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.

When I did my calculations and analysis of the Dragon and Rabbit and started writing my forecast about them, I thought that they would be the luckiest Chinese animal zodiacs of the year, but I was wrong because the Rooster seems to be the luckiest sign of the year. The only affliction is a side affliction aside from the #2 Flying Star (Illness Star) that affects all animal signs, and #3 Flying Star (Argumentative Star), which for the case of the Rooster is going to be quite manageable. But the real good news is that aside from having the #4 Flying Star (also known as Romance and Scholastic Star), and being affected also by the #8 Flying Star (Wealth Star), they have not one, not two, but three (3), yes three Big Auspicious Stars! This is quite rare and can it get any better?!!!!!! As I said, this is quite rare and it is obvious that this is a record-breaking incident. Good luck will surely come your way!!!!! These good luck may manifest in unending opportunities, wealth or money luck, abundance of good fortune! On top of it, your windfall luck for the year is quite great so expects a lot of unexpected (yes it sounds contradictory) money luck!

The #4 Flying Star, also known as Romantic and Scholastic Star, indicates that your romantic or love life is going to be good, especially if you’re single. If you want to enhance this, you can a pair of Mandarin Ducks made of Rose Quartz. However, for attached or married couple this may mean extra marital affairs. To safeguard your love life from this wear the Double Happiness Symbol in gold or if you’re married tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String at the foot of your bed. All Rooster can benefit from wearing the special Turquoise bead of my Guru Lama that has the Double Happiness Sign and Longevity Sign.

Turquoise beads

These Turquoise beads of my Guru Lama are highly blessed. Please note that these are mala beads broken into single powerful beads for people who wants to avail them to help the Sentient Beings in Tibet and Nepal.

 

The #4 Flying Star is also the Scholastic Star, so this indicates that students will have a better and easier time in school, as well as those whose pursuit for wealth luck involves scholastic endeavors like research.

As mentioned you are highly blessed with 3 Big Auspicious Stars from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula!!!! And this means that only good things await people born under the sign of the Rooster!!!! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself with so much good luck, so much good things happening at the same time that it has become overwhelming!!!!! Really, everything will just seem to be working really well for you, and they do!!!!

The only draw back is the your Lung – Ta or Windhorse luck is mediocre, but all the good news that will be coming your way will definitely more than compensate for it. Also your Life Chi is at it’s lowest, but simply wearing the Deity Life Chi Amulet or the Surangama Mantra Amulet will remedy this.

Like everybody else, all Roosters should be careful with the Illness Star. This is a serious concern for all signs and thus it is quite important for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha or Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel. The 23, 59, and 83 – years old are the most affected amongst the Rooster sign.

 

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 key phrase for the Dog this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey are “Don’t Bark” and “If You Have to Bark Please Think Twice!” because this year you are ruled by the #3 Flying Star, which is the Argumentative Star or what some people call as the Quarrel Star. You will find yourself getting into a lot of arguments and possibly some court case. On top of it, you may get short tempered and hot headed. The key thing to do is to focus on the real issue and do not get side tracked with minor irritating concerns. Normally, the cure for this is the Ksitigarbha Fireball, but this year, it is best to avoid this because of the already strong fire element of the year. So the best thing for this is to wear the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant made of gold. This will help pacify the effects of the said star. However, for Dogs who are already involve in legal case or court cases, it will be nice to add the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet (on top of the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant) to help ensure that you win the said cases, this is because having this star on your end also means that it is likely that you will be in the losing end of the said cases.

On top of that you have to be careful also about having arguments with your loved ones or business partners, because this might escalate into a big fight. Again, this year, like last year, the best cure for that is the Kuan Yin with Sutra pendant.

You are also afflicted with a bad star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. This may manifest in terms of you losing some valued relationships (as also influenced by the Argumentative Star) and also wealth loss. To help counter this, you can donate a blood or wear a Prayer Wheel or a Surangama Mantra Amulet.

The good news is a Big Auspicious Star and a Small Auspicious Star that may manifest in forms of wonderful opportunities flank you. Should you want to enhance this star, it might be good for you to wear an Ammonite or a Kuan Kong.

Like everyone else, you will have to be careful with your health and safety because the year is ruled by the Illness Star or #2 Flying Star as it lands on the center. So to counter this, it is highly recommended that you wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, or an image of the Medicine Buddha. Dogs that 22, 46, and 82 – years – old should take most care. It will also be god if they wear the Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel.

 

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

Despite of some afflictions indicated in your Flying Star Chart and 24 Mountain Stars Formula, people born under the sign of the Pig are going to be one of the luckiest this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. This is because your basic element is compatible with the energies of the year. More than that you are likely to experience this good luck as soon as the year starts. You will also experience help from the heavenly beings especially if you invite images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Taoist Gods or even Catholic images of Saints.

The biggest concern for the Pig/Boar is, like the Dog, you are severely and directly affected by the #3 Argumentative Star also known as the Quarrel Star. This star might damper some of the good things that is bound to happen to you. You will find yourself getting into a lot of arguments and possibly some court cases. On top of it, you may get short tempered and hot headed. You might find yourself also attracting other people of the same temperament or influence them to have the same temperament thus making things much worse. The key thing to do is to focus on the real issue and do not get side tracked with minor irritating concerns. Normally, the cure for this is the Ksitigarbha Fireball, but this year, it is best to avoid this because of the already strong fire element of the year. So the best thing for this is to wear the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant made of gold. This will help pacify the effects of the said star. However, for Pigs or Boars who are already involve in legal case or court cases, it will be nice to add the Vajrapani Ruel (on top of the Kuan Yin with Sutra Pendant) to help ensure that you win the said cases, this is because having this star on your end also means that it is likely that you will be in the losing end of the said cases.

But as mentioned you will also receive ‘help’ from the heavens this is because you are lucky enough to have the Heaven’s Seal brought about by the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. This star shall bring you blessings from Heavenly Beings and Buddhas and Bodhisattvas or Deities or Taoist Gods. To further enhance this star it will be good to wear an image of a Buddha like Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha or Amitabha Buddha. Or that of Bodhisattvas like Kuan Yin (also known or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Kwan Yin, Guan Yin), Maitreya Buddha, Sangharama Bodhisattva (Kuan Kong, Guan Gong). Having them both as an image at home and as pendant should work.

It is worthy to note that the Heaven’s Seal might also bring you some people in your life that can help pave the way for you to attain success or your objectives.

Furthermore, you also have the Small Auspicious Star and this should bring you some opportunities that may be small from the start, but it is up to you to make them big. Having said that, you can enhance this star by wearing the Deity Life Chi Amulet or Ammonite or a nice semi – precious stone image of a Cicada.

You are indirectly affected by the Three Killings, but keeping yourself busy will definitely manage this star, or you can simply carry the image of the Three Celestial Guardians.

KALACHAKRA PENDANT

This is a Kalachakra Pendant designed by Lillian Too. She has included some mandala sands inside the pendant to make it more potent. I personally love this pendant and has one that is made of white gold. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

What is really nice about people born in the year of the Pig is that for this year your Chinese Horoscope reading indicates that your life chi, your personal lung – ta or Windhorse luck are quite strong, thus you will find yourself with a lot of inner strength and confidence. Another draw back though is that your Spirit chi is quite weak and you may find yourself easily affected by negative energies or negative chi. To safeguard yourself from this it is quite important for you to wear a gold Kalachakra pendant. Remember that it is important that it is made of gold. Secondary options are jade or clear quartz.

We are all affected by the #2 Flying Star also called Illness Star. So everyone should wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha. Chanting the Medicine Buddha mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA – and reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra are also important, especially for the 21, 45, and 81 – years – old Pigs or Boar.

 

This ends my annual forecast for 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs or Chinese Horoscope.

And as you can see that while the general reading of the year is not very good, the individual forecast of each of the Chinese Animal Zodiac or Animal Sign or Chinese Horoscope are mostly good, maybe with the exception of the Ox.

I will be the first one to say that this is reading is not 100% accurate because one will have to take into consideration. And regular readers will know that I always say this every year. But in the first two parts of the forecast, I have already told you how to calculate your Bazi or Paht Chee using some of the online Bazi calculators. Should you have a high water element on your chart, this year should be a little better, but if there is no water and you have a high fire and metal element on your chart, this should be a little be more challenging for you.

But remember, prayers work and it’s useless to know these things if one won’t be able to manage them. Sincere good deeds should also make a lot of wonders especially in tempering or eradicating bad luck.

Illness Suppression Amulet2

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.

So in summary, generally speaking we should all have this year’s essential cures and these are the following:

  • Illness Suppression Amulet or Medicine Buddha Pendant.
  • Chant Medicine Buddha Mantra or Recite Medicine Buddha Sutra or both.
  • Check your Bazi or Paht Chee by using some of the online Bazi calculators and depending on the result (check Part 1 of this year’s forecast for the instructions) gets yourself a blue semi – precious or precious stone.

In essence, the above is this year’s Holy Trinity.

Please note also that if your age or animal zodiac was mentioned as one of those who is highly afflicted by the Illness Star, you may want to further protect yourself with the Blessed Turquoise Bead with the Longevity Sign and Lotus image that signifies renewing of energies. This is addition to the mentioned cures.

Also for this year, I have decided to stream line the recommended cures. Because the more cures I recommend, the more emails I receive asking whether what is the best cure. So what I did now is simply recommend those that will work best. I took into consideration availability of the cures, and in that case, if the initial cure may be difficult to find, I decided to add other cures. The only exception is regarding the Five Element Pagoda, which is the cure for the Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / #5 Flying Star, that is the only option as of now, and my Feng Shui Teacher and his Taoist Priest friend has stressed that as of to date all senior Feng Shui experts agrees that it is still the only effective cure. However, for this year since we need to strengthen the said cure, we added some powerful amulets. I know that the Five Element Pagoda pendant is quite difficult to find especially since it has to be in gold, but it available in some online store and by special request thru a private seller.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

Feng Shui Tips to Activate Descendant Luck

Published Pebrero 29, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the greatest aspirations of the Chinese is to ensure that they have good descendants, thus when looking for a spouse they consult Feng Shui experts to ensure that descendant’s luck of a couple is present. In fact, once the wife gets pregnant she is treated like a goddess, even the mother-in-law will definitely make sure that the pregnant daughter-in-law is taken care of properly to ensure a smooth pregnancy.

Also, in the old days much effort is given to ensuring that a boy is born, is to ensure the family’s lineage is well preserved. A girl is considered as a less important child because she is destined to be married off to another family, and thus considered as somebody else’s child. In fact, this practice or belief has become so bad that there are some Chinese families who don’t give names to their daughter because they’re destined to be known as the wife of so-so. Thus when addressing them in the household they’re simply called as First Daughter, Second Daughter, Big Sister, or Second Sister, or Third Sister. When addressed by somebody else other than their family they’re simply called as ‘First Daughter of Wong Family’ they’re simply defined by their family name and whether they’re the eldest daughter or the youngest, etc. When they get married they’re then simply defined by the husband’s family name. My own grandmother doesn’t even have her own name.

However, because I don’t believe that women are of a ‘lesser’ being compared to men, I will not write about Feng Shui tips in ensuring that the couple are to have a boy, rather, I’d like to share some Feng Shui tips to activate one’s Descendant Luck or Fertility Luck.

Several of the Feng Shui tips that I’m going to mention are things that I’ve recommended to friends and family.

RED KUAN YIN PENDANT.  Kuan Yin (also known as ‘Goddess of Mercy’, ‘Buddha of Compassion’) is a Bodhisattva revered both in Taoism and Buddhism. Kuan Yin grants the wish of having of babies. For this purpose a red Kuan Yin (also spelled as Kwan Yin, Quan Yin) is best to help you activate your Descendant’s Luck. It is highly recommended that both the husband and the wife wear a red Kuan Yin pendant. However, if this is not possible, then it is recommended that the woman wear the pendant. I have three different previous post about Kuan Yin. Get to know her by reading them. The first post is KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD, the second post is UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN, and the third post is PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION.

RABBIT. A rabbit is a very powerful symbol of fertility. It’s believes that placing the image of a rabbit in the East section of the bedroom can increase the chances of fertility.

HAPPY FAT BUDDHA WITH CHILDREN. Having the image of the Happy Fat Buddha whose real name is Maitreya Buddha in your house helps increase your potential of having a good descendant luck. You can also know more about the Happy Fat Buddha by clicking here.

CARNELIAN BRACELET. Carnelian or Carnelian Agates or Orange Agates worn as bracelet is one of the best fertility charm. Carnelian is a stone or semi-precious stone that directly controls our sixth chakra – the sire where our reproductive organs are located. Wearing a carnelian as a bracelet will increase the wearer’s chance of being more fertile. This charm is also great for people who have found to have low sperm or egg count.

IMAGE OF KUAN YIN WITH A BABY. Placing an image of Kuan Yin with a Baby is another Feng Shui Descendant Luck enhancer. For this purpose, it’s best to place the image of Kuan Yin with a Baby on the west section of your house. If this is not possible you can also place the image of Kuan Yin with a Baby in the West corner of your living room.

A PAIR OF ELEPHANTS. This is one of the most effective Feng Shui cure and enhancer to activate one’s descendant luck. You should note that the trunk of the elephants should be down and not up. Place a pair of elephants with the trunks down on the west section of your room and if possible both couples should stroke the trunks of the elephant three times each night.

THREE PIECES OF CERAMIC OR PORCELAIN POMEGRANATE AND/OR PEACH. Both the pomegranate and the peach are powerful Feng Shui tools to enhance your descendant luck or fertility luck. In choosing a ceramic or porcelain pomegranate, choose the one that has a color of deep red. For ceramic or porcelain peach choose one that has a color of bright pink.

RECITE THE MANTRA OF GODDESS TARA. Goddess Tara or Green Tara is a Buddhist deity born out of Avalokitesvara or Kuan YIn’s tear drop. I’ll discuss more about Green Tara on a future post, however, allow me to say that calling on Goddess Tara by reciting her mantra is one way of activating one’s Descendant Luck. Furthermore, placing an image of the white manifestation of Goddess Tara called White Tara on the west section of your house also activates one’s descendant luck. Goddess Tara’s mantra is OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA. Wearing her seed syllable TAM is also a powerful tool to activate one’s descendant luck. The seed syllable TAM is one of the featured symbolic syllable in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Paying Homage to Kuan Yin, the Buddha of Compassion!

Published Pebrero 21, 2012 by jptan2012

I intentionally wrote 3 different posts about Kuan Yin (also spelled as Guan Yin, Quan Yin, Kwan Yin, Gwan Yin), because there is simply a lot to write about Kuan Yin. The first post is KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD. The second post is UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN.

Kuan Yin is also called ‘The Goddess of Mercy’, ‘Buddha of Compassion’, ‘Bodhisattva of Compassion’, ‘Guan Shi Yin’, ‘Kannon’ in Japan, ‘Avalokitesvara’ also spelled as Avalokiteshvara, ‘Chenrezig’, ‘Guanzizai’ are just some of the way she’s addressed.

However, allow me to share a few ways of paying homage to Kuan Yin. One way of paying homage to Kuan Yin is by inviting her into our house. It’s important that her image is placed on a ‘good’ spot. If possible, place her near the entrance, but do not put her in the kitchen, dining room, restroom and bedroom of married couples. Inviting her image to our home or office creates a lot of merit, and by simply having her image around us makes us closer to Kuan Yin.

You can also offer incense, clean water, flowers, fruits; lighted candles is also a very auspicious way of paying homage to the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

Wearing her image as pendant either in gold or a semi-precious stone like jade  is also a way of paying homage to Kuan Yin. It also gives us a visual representation of our ‘relationship’ to Kuan Yin that it helps us to become closer to the Bodhisattva.

My own Kuan Yin pendant has her sutra and other prayers written on the back. Any image of Kuan Yin will do, however, if you can get something that’s similar to my pendant the better. The bigger one has the shortest sutra in the world, the Heart Sutra that is largely associated with Kuan Yin. The smaller pendant has the White Robed Kuan Yin prayer. In Buddhism wearing or carrying sutras and prayers brings the same effect as if you saying it yourself. It has an effect of you continuously saying the sutra or prayer. You can also get a miniature Heart Sutra and carry it with your body, aside from being an homage to the Kuan Yin this serves as an instrument of your continues blessing from Kuan Yin.

Still another way of paying homage to Kuan Yin is by ‘sharing’ her with other people. Talking to people about Kuan Yin is one way of homage to Kuan Yin. You can do this orally or you can do this in written format. In the age of internet, this had become easier, because simply writing about her on your blog, or Facebook or Twitter account a lot of people get to know more about her. You can also buy several copies of the Heart Sutra or several of her images and share it to your friends and/or even strangers; it’s another way of paying homage to her.

There are many ways of paying homage to Kuan Yin, and you can come up with your own unique way of paying homage to her. However, I believe one best way of paying homage to Kuan Yin other than inviting her to our home or office and wearing her image as pendant is by chanting her mantra.

Reciting or chanting the mantra of Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara is not only an act of homage, but it gives us a lot of merit from Kuan Yin. If you’re facing a big problem, recite her mantra and she will immediately come to your aid.

The Mantra of the Buddha of Compassion, Kuan Yin is OM MANI PADME HUM.

If you want to know more about Kuan Yin do read my first two posts about her. The first one is KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD and the second one is UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN.

Symbolic Script of the Mantra of the Buddha of Compassion

THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT

Published Enero 12, 2012 by jptan2012

I’ve always wondered why Feng Shui experts hasn’t come up with a “All-in-One” Feng Shui enhancer and protector. I think wearing a lot of charms is simply not practical and may cause a toll on the pocket.

Since I have my own training on Feng Shui and the power of symbols, I decided to make my own WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. The truth is you need to be an expert to design this one. All you have to do is know the consistent annual protectors and incorporate it in one pendant and just make sure you’re not violating any Feng Shui rule.

Anyway, after doing some research and after looking for a good craftsman, I was able to come up with my very own WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT - Front Side. It has the image of the powerful and highly revered Taoist and Buddhist God 'THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN SUN WUKONG'. In Buddhism he is known as the VICTORIOUS FIGHTING BUDDHA.

The front of the pendant has the image of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven Sun Wukong also known as the Monkey God, Monkey King or Victorious Fighting Buddha. Having the image of The Great Sage is like being close to Kuan Yin also because it was Kuan Yin who pave the way for Sun Wukong to become a Buddha. The Great Sage is also both greatly revered as deity/immortal of Taoism and a buddha of Buddhism, so technically you have a link to the powers of both religion.

Try to know more about The Great Sage by reading my previous post – GETTING TO KNOW ‘THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN’ MONKEY GOD CALLED SUN WUKONG. By reading the post that Sun Wukong is a good strategist and protector, which makes him a Wealth and Protector God. Also, because of his affinity with Kuan Yin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Sun Wukong, indirectly becomes a powerful healing buddha also.

At the back of THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT are the image of the 3-Celestial Guardians which deals with the 3 Killings; 5 Element Pagoda which deals with the Five Yellow Star; the Ksitigarbha Fireball which deals with Argumentative Star.

It should be note also the Three Celestial Guardians has the Piyao also and this basically pacifies the Tai Suey God.

At the back of THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is the title 'GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN' in Chinese character, followed by the 3-Celestial Guardians with the Piyao and at the bottom are the Five Element Pagoda and Ksitigarbha Fireball.

I’m not a commercially practicing Feng Shui consultant. I decided to invest on studying Feng Shui because my family believes in it and we realized that it will be more practical and cheaper if one of us just study Feng Shui to avoid the high cost of the consultations and to avoid being ripped off with expensive Feng Shui charms that may not be essential.

I decided to make the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT for myself and my family. But soon friends and other relatives requested for it also. If you’re interested I can also offer it to you all you have to is email me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com or leave a comment.

The gold one can get really expensive but its also available in silver.

I’m also currently looking for a jade supplier and a sculptor who can craft the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT into a jade or other precious and/or semi-precious stones. It would be nice to have a JADE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT or maybe a CITRINE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT or an AMETHYST WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. It is also to address the love of Chinese to wear Jade. But whatever we use its the symbolism that makes it work. I just want to find ways to make it more affordable.
