FIRST, THE RAT…

Will generally have a good year. You’ll find that your career will be great and you will be quite successful. Wealth luck might be good also. I say might, because while you have the potential to have this luck, it might be dampen a little by the Black Sky Star, which is found through the use of the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology. Nevertheless, this year you’ll find yourself surrounded by helpful people and it’s up to you to utilize them.

However, you’ll also find yourself a little overwhelmed with the possible work ahead of you. Remember you can only get your wealth luck if you work for it and being swallowed by the task ahead will set you back.

You have to be careful though with your health luck. This is also due to the presence of the Black Sky Star. While this won’t bring about any serious illness, having this star might set you back a little because of a bad cold or a fever.

When it comes to relationships, this is quite a bad year for both the single and partnered rat.

The Black Sky Star is further aggravated by the two clashing pillars of the year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of a Protective God (Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) or Amitabha Buddha) to protect yourself from the Black Sky Star.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Wear or carry an image the Victory Banner.

Wear a Holy Gourd or a Medicine Buddha Pendant, preferably with Mantra.

Carry or wear the Double Happiness symbol.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

SECOND, THE OX…

Will have a very good year for both personal and professional life. Your life palace shows that you have the Wealth Star and this means that money will easily come to you this year. However, note that you have the tendency to get into a lot of argument, so just simply watch out for that. This is further strengthened by the Excellent Seal Star, which is shown by using the Purple Flower Star Astrology.

The Ox born in 1973 should watch out for the Snake born in September of 1965. For some reason, which started last year, the two signs, which are normally friendly to each other, will find themselves clashing. The Ox seems to be at the loosing end, but the Snake seems to be at the wrong. However, this is not generalizing but seems to be what is indicated in the chart. While this particularly true between the Ox born in the year 1973 and Snake born in the year 1965 with focus on the month of September, all Ox born people must be careful in getting into arguments which might lead to a long term disagreement or fight.

The Purple Star Astrology shows that there are a number of minor namely the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star, which might cause some accidents and/or aggravate the possibility of an argument.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear as a pendant an image of the Wealth Deity/God like Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong. This is if you want to further enhance your wealth luck. They will also act as a protector from the effects of the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star.

Wear or carry the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

TENTH, THE ROOSTER…

Will have very good financial wealth luck this year. However, the presence of the violent star in your life palace indicates that you have to be careful about losing your money. Be careful also for possible violent incidents this year.

Career wise it will also be very good for you. However, the presence of Crooked Star as indicated by the Purple Star Astrology indicates that you might have some reputation problem towards the middle of the year.

However, you will also notice that you will seldom get recognized by your efforts and that other people might get credit from your hard work. Because of this, success in terms of recognition might not be attained.

However, be happy that the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology also indicates the presence of General Power Star and the Land Relief Star. The General Power Star indicates that if you get into a problem, you will find solutions easily if you focus on your own strength, also the Land Relief Star will also give you the resources that you need to attain whatever you wish for.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong to protect you from the violent star.

Wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha (also fondly and popularly called as the Happy Fat Buddha) to cure the effects of the Crooked Star.

Wear or carry a Victory Banner to help you become always victorious.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi.

ELEVENTH, THE DOG…

Will have a good year even if wealth luck is not very high. You have the Heaven’s Luck or Blessing star in your life palace and you’ll find yourself being bless in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to your personal life. While wealth luck is not very high, it is neither bad. In fact, you’ll still see some improvement.

The Purple Star Astrology indicates the presence of two other stars. First, the Death Amulet Star, which means that there is a possibility of death or serious illness not with the Dog itself but may be with an elderly family member.

The other star is the Haul Paddle Star, which indicates that there is going to be a big professional change in your life this year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear a 3-Legged Toad pendant or an image of the Yellow Dzambhala as a pendant to enhance your career luck.

TWELFTH, THE BOAR/PIG…

Is in direct conflict with the Tai Sue and this might pose some of the difficulties in attaining your personal luck and your heaven’s luck.

Wealth luck is average, however, since your life palace is flank by a Violent Star, you will have to be careful that you don’t lose this through robbery. Be careful also that you don’t get into unnecessary expenditures also.

Personal luck should be better, unless you’re unable to appease the Tai Suey.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Carry or wear a Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

SEVENTH, THE HORSE…

Will have not have very ideal wealth luck this year. However, career luck might be on the swing. Meaning, this is a year where employed people born in the year of the Horse will be luckier than the one’s who are in business. The employed horse will have a more stable financial luck than the entrepreneur horse.

Also the Purple Flower Star Astrology also known as the Purple Star Astrology indicates that you have Bad Chi Star, which will have an effect on your overall luck and pull you down a little. But the Purple Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Sun Star, which is a very good star to have. This together with the Flying Star #9 (Future or Multiplying Luck Star) indicates that you somehow your inner being will indicate whether you will have a good life or a bad one.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala to help you with your wealth luck.

Wear a Ruyi or an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to help you with your business. Wearing an image of Sun Wukong or wearing a Kalachakra Pendant will also help you deal with the Bad Chi Star.

The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

Wear or carry the Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra to help you enhance your good karma and clear out all your negative karma.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

EIGHTH, THE SHEEP/GOAT…

Will have to be very careful about their health luck. You’ll find yourself sicklier or more prone in getting into accidents.

Wealth luck is not very ideal either, and you have to be very careful in getting into big business transactions.

There is also no significant good change in your career life, and you have to be very careful about being complacent because a simple mistake can be detrimental.

What’s worst is that the illness star that flies into your life palace is further aggravated by the negative stars that are indicated by the Purple Star Astrology. There are several of these stars, and they are the Flying Chaste Star, which may make you more prone to accidents. Also you have in your life palace the Earth Death Star and the Earth Door Star, this star indicates that they may be death of a loved one and a possibility of grave illness.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear a jade Wulou or an image of the Medicine Buddha as a pendant to protect you from the illness star and the Flying Chaste Star.

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or Sun Wukong to help you with your wealth luck.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to help you with your career luck and help you with your business.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Yin or the Kalachakra as pendant to protect you from the Earth Death Star and Earth Door Star.

NINTH, THE MONKEY…

Will see an easing from arguments and relationship problems. However, I’m afraid that all is not well because this time the Monkey will take a beating with their health luck.

Wealth luck is also going to be a bit of a challenge. It will feel like that ‘you’re swimming against the current’ and it will exhaust putting more toll against your health.

While there will be lesser arguments, you still need to watch out for your relationships with the people you work with. Do have less talk and more action. Do not just bark you have to bite a little.

Monkeys who are married to a snake, especially Monkeys born in 1968 should face the reality that they are married to a person who might not be totally honest with them. Love and respect your husband but take a look at what’s your worth so that your spouse won’t feel that they can get away with their infidelity with you.

The Hanged Spirit Star as indicated by the Purple Star Astrology might make you feel insecure further aggravating your relationship problems. You have to remember that you can share your feelings with your family members. An Ox family member may be especially helpful.

Be careful also of the Painful Knot Star also indicated by the Purple flower Star Astrology, which may bring in a lot of gossips and might put you in a compromising situation.

However, the Country Wealth Star of the Purple Star Astrology and the Multiplying Star of the Flying Star method indicates that you will get some of the help you will need.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the Medicine Buddha with mantra or a jade Wulou pendant.

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or the 3-Legged Toad as a pendant to help you with your wealth luck.

A married Monkey should tie an amethyst geode on the foot of their bed and wear a double happiness symbol pendant.

Wear the Ruyi to give you more authority.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong to help you in your business pursuits.

To counter the effects of the Hanged Spirit Star wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha (also popularly and fondly called as the Happy Fat Buddha).

This is from my personal collection. I wear this pendant everyday. In choosing an image of the Happy Fat Buddha to be worn as a pendant, always look for the face. Make sure that it has happy jolly face.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast: Dragon & Snake (Part 4)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

FIFTH, THE DRAGON…

Will have a generally good year. It is also a year where in scholastic pursuit or scholastic approach to things will help you reap success and wealth. You’re also flank by the Flying Star #9 meaning what you sow is what you will also reap. Do more good things and you will also be rewarded with more blessing.

Money or wealth luck will be smooth but you have to more open to advice coming from your family. Do not dupe yourself into thinking that you know everything.

Romance luck may be good for single dragons; however, those who are partnered should safeguard themselves from a possible third party. Whether you’re a single dragon or a married or partner dragon you should be thankful for the presence Crimson Chamber Star, as indicated by the Purple Flower Star Astrology, because this star will enhance the positive effects of the Romance Star but at the same time it will help safe guard the relationship of the dragons who are already in a relationship.

You are also partially affected by the Argumentative Star thus it will be good to take control of your temper.

The 37, 63 and 71 years old Dragon should be careful with their health.

The Tai Suey is also in the same sector of the sector of your life palace. You’ll have to be careful not to offend the Tai Suey.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the 3-legged toad or of the Yellow Dzambhala to enhance your wealth luck.

For single dragons wear a pair of mandarin ducks or the symbol of double happiness pendant.

Wear the Ksitigarbha Fireball as a pendant.

Wear a jade wu lou or holy gourd or an image of the Medicine Buddha pendant. You can also wear the symbolic script of the Medicine Buddha.

This is a sample of a Medicine Buddha pendant. This is similar to the one released by Lillian Too. Photo lifted in Google images.

Wear a Piyao either as a bracelet or as a pendant to appease the Tai Suey.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

SIXTH, THE SNAKE…

Will have to remember that you have a turbulent but potentially a good year. The stars are in your favor, however, the presence of the Tai Suey in your life palace will have to be taken care. You do this by sincerely being good and nice. You can also avoid the wrath of the Tai Suey by carrying or wearing an image of the Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu).

Also, some of the Snakes had very financially rewarding 2012. However, most of these are indirect wealth in the sense that they had this because of the big help or big influence of other people. You might still have that, however, the Snake that forgot and become swell headed will see themselves taking a financial dip this year. That is simply the law of Karma working as indicated by the future blessing’s star.

The Snake born in the year 1965 will have to learn to be humble, among all the other people born in the snake year, it is the one born in 1965 that has the highest potential to have good luck, but also has the highest potential to have bad luck, this is because you are greatly affected by the multiplying star thus making whatever you do or think multiply several fold.

All snake should be careful with their health and do watch out for possible accidents.

The Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Hidden Death Star. Despite of the name of the star, the star no effect on death, however, it has something to do with your family relationship. This star might lead to frequent arguments. Also, if you’re a married snake and are living with your in-laws, remember that you have to be humble in your manner in dealing with them. You have to be careful also because you have the potential to get into infidelity, worse you might set your eyes with one of your in-laws. Remember that this is a disgraceful act!!!

Again, for the Snake born in 1965, you will have the tendency to have a big fight with an Ox born in 1973. Without generalizing, the stars indicate that most likely it’s the Snake who is at fault. Remember that the Ox is only defending his/her family.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Piyao worn as a bracelet or pendant.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast: Tiger & Rabbit (Part 3)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

THIRD, THE TIGER…

Will have a complicated year brought about by a lot of the conflicting stars both found in the Flying Star and Purple Flower Star. Having said that, if I were to say whether it is a good year or not, I’d say that it is generally going to be a good year.

The Flying Star formula indicates that you have the wealth luck this year, however, this calls for some strict discipline and vigilance on your end, because you are also somehow affected by the Flying Star #7, which is the Violent Star or what some people will call as the Robbery Star. Because of this your wealth luck will tend to be average, and you will see that you have to work harder for you to get the wealth that you aspire for. It can be ‘dangling’ in front of you but not easily attainable. But look on the bright side and all you have to do is enhance it and then cure the negative star.

Career luck is also a little promising, however, you’ll find yourself in a lonely path to success. Meaning you won’t be able to rely others except on your own hard work. As I said it’ll be a complicated year, you’ll find yourself on your own when it comes to success, however, when facing some trouble you’ll find helpful people, but their involvement can be a little fleeting.

Your Purple Flower Star Astrology indicates that you have the Six Danger Star. The 6 Danger star despite of the name doesn’t mean that there are six different kinds of danger. However, it is still that one should be wary of because it is a star that may bring about feelings of loneliness and depression. The star at the very least will make you ill tempered or moody.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Carry or wear the 3-Legged Toad as a pendant. This is a very powerful Feng Shui enhancer or cure for people who are unable to attain the wealth luck that is already at hand.

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

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

Wear the image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to protect you from the Violent Star or from any harm. Both Sun Wukong and Kuan Kong can also help you achieve better career. To know more about this you can read my post about Sun Wukong and Kuan Kong.

'The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven' Monkey King called Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector god that's both highly revered in Taoism and Buddhism.

‘The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven’ Monkey King called Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector god that’s both highly revered in Taoism and Buddhism.

Wear the image of Kuan Yin or Goddess Tara or the symbolic scripts – OM AH HUM, Medicine Buddha Mantra, or the seed syllable TAM to counter the negative effects of the Six Danger Star.

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

FOURTH, THE RABBIT…

Is in charge of his/her luck this 2013 – year of the Water Snake. This is the year when you need to a little scholastic in dealing with your wealth and career. Meaning, you have to study everything that you get into for you to be able to achieve success and wealth luck. The appearance of the Jade Hall Star as shown by the Purple Flower Star Astrology indicates that your scholastic luck is further enhanced. Rabbits who are in the field of education will find themselves ‘shining’ in their field.

The sad thing is the Flying Star #3, which is the Argumentative Star, is in your life palace now. This means you’ll find yourself getting into a lot of arguments and fight. If you are not careful, this might escalate into a legal problem. You will need to think twice before you act or react.

The Purple Flower Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Deferred Guest Star. This star is harmless unless activated by the person who has this star in his or her life palace. The Rabbit has this star so it is best not to activate this star. How does one activate this star? This star is activated when one goes into a highly Yin place such as a funeral or a cemetery. When the Deferred Guest Star is activated it will absorb all the negative energies that are present in the highly Yin place and it may create havoc in your life.

A Rabbit will also have a balance romantic luck. It will be positive but not too great that they have to worry about third party involvement.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Ruyi to enhance career luck and wear an image of Yellow Dzambhala to enhance wealth luck.

Yellow Dzambhala

Yellow Dzambhala

If you’re single and want to look for a partner, you can enhance the romantic luck by wearing a double happiness symbol or a pair of mandarin ducks pendant.

To counter the Argumentative Star carry or wear an image of the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Again the best way to avoid activating the Deferred Guest Star is to avoid going to highly Yin places like the funeral house, hospital or cemetery. However, if this totally unavoidable wear the symbol of the Kalachakra as pendant. Truth be told, if you have this star it is good to simply wear the symbol of Kalachakra because you’ll never know when you’ll get yourself into a Yin place, especially when you travel a lot.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forceast: An Introduction (Part 1)

In the past two posts we talked about the general Feng Shui forecast of the year 2013, which is the Year of the Water Snake.

I’m sure a lot of you want to know about the Feng Shui Forecast base on your Chinese birth signs, which is base on an Animal Zodiac.

First, allow me to state once again, just like last year, that while this is helpful, an accurate forecast can only be possible if one is to have your Bazi/Paht Chee. Nevertheless, this general forecast will still give you a bird’s eye view of your general luck.

Also for this year, I’ve decided to push the accuracy of this general forecast a little further by incorporating another branch of the Feng Shui called Purple Flower Star Astrology also known as the Purple Star Astrology. Please note that in Bazi Reading, the more advanced Feng Shui consultants almost always incorporate this technique. However, this is much more complicated to discuss that most of the Feng Shui consultants will just skip mentioning it.

Last year, when I made my 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON FORECAST, I didn’t include this method, thus I was able to write my forecast at an earlier date. However, I thought I’d include this now to have a more accurate forecast. Incorporating this took a longer time for me to calculate everything but I think it is also better than just solely relying on the Flying Star with 8 Mansions method because the truth there are a lot of other stars that affects our luck.

I’ve decided to mention this now, because you’ll see that my forecast here will be a little different with the other more famous or commercially available forecast. That is most of them will solely use the Flying Star with the 8 Mansions method to do a general forecast.

The question is are they wrong in not including the Purple Flower Star Astrology method? The answer is NO. It works and it’ll give you a guide, but I just thought to incorporate this because it will give a more accurate forecast. Having said that, it is still a general guideline or overview of one’s luck. An accurate forecast can only be achieved with an accurate and methodological analysis of one’s Bazi or Paht Chee. But just the same, a basic guideline is better than none at all…

I have to warn you though that some of the name of the stars in the Purple Flower Star Astrology / Purple Star Astrology might sound funny, ridiculous or weird, that is because of the limitations of a good translation. One other thing that you’ll notice is that unlike the Flying Star Method wherein a single star can affect two or three different animal zodiac, the Purple Star Astrology is life palace specific and therefore a single star won’t affect more than one animal zodiac.

Reading through the forecast, some of you will wonder whether how you’re suppose to wear all the recommended Feng Shui charms/amulets. That was also my dilemma before, because some people will laugh at me how much pendant I have to wear because it looks like I have a very small tit at the middle of my chest or it looks like I might break my neck because of the heavy Feng Shui charm. It is also irritating how some will recommend a different Feng Shui cure or enhancers every year, which become an endless cycle of buying different Feng Shui charms/amulets every year. Because of this, I decided to design and make my own Feng Shui pendant that incorporates most of the cures or enhancers that I know we will need every year. These are the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Front image of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is that of - THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN SUN WUKONG.

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

The back side of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA MANTRA BLESSING PENDANT has the images of the Victory Banner, Lung-Ta or Windhorse, the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara - TAM, and the symbolic script of the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA, WISH FULFILLING MANTRA, and the NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA.

Wearing the 2 pendants has been a lot of help and now I really don’t feel like I have to break my neck wearing a lot of different stuff just to cure the bad stars and enhance the good stars. While the pendant that I designed is already ideal, admittedly, some of you will still need to have more than just the two pendants that I designed. Note that I first made these pendants for myself and my family until friends started ordering them also and when I started my blog, several of you, my readers has also ordered it. These pendants are made to order, and the biggest problem that I have now with them is how to make them more affordable by making it thinner. I’m still constantly looking for a jeweler who can make it more affordable by making it lighter.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Bazi and Flying Star Feng Shui Forecast: A Balance Year with Fresh Energies (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

In my last post, I wrote about what’s install for 2013 Year of the Water Snake, mostly base on its Bazi or Paht Chee chart. Although, I also mentioned about the Flying Star flying on its original position in the Lo Shu, which happens every 9 years, I wasn’t able to expound on it. I will discuss about it now.

If you’ve read my 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON FENG SHUI FLYING STAR FORECAST, you’ll know that these stars basically will have the same effect in whatever location they may fly. So, what one can do is just familiarize themselves with the effects in whatever location they fly into. However, for this year, since they are flying back into their original position, which is a positive thing, some of the stars might have a slightly different effect. It will still retain its intrinsic effect but for some signs it might have some added or lesser degree of effect.

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

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

This is the Flying Star Chart of the year. Image was lifted from Google Images.

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

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

 THE EAST HAS THE FLYING STAR #3 (ARGUMENTATIVE STAR)

Effects: May cause relationship problems, numerous bickering, litigation, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. This will also affect the eldest son, and whether his room is one east side or not, you will see the eldest son to be impatient. This year the Rabbit is also greatly affected by this star.

Feng Shui Cure: Ksitigarbha Fireball (place this is in the East section of the house or room). For the people born under the sign of the Rabbit or the eldest son or if your room is in the East section of the house you can wear or carry the Ksitigarbha Fireball pendant/key chain. Wearing a Maitreya Buddha or Happy Fat Buddha pendant will also help.

The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that I design also has the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl on the hand of  Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE FLYING STAR #4 (ROMANCE AND SCHOLASTIC STAR)

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

Feng Shui Enhancer: For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed.

Additional Feng Shui Tip: Do not put any water feature on this side of the house because it might create a sexual scandal or infidelity problem. A water drainage is considered as a water feature. 

THE SOUTH HAS THE FLYING STAR #9 (MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR)

Effects: Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well. The Horse is also affected by this star thus it will be good if he/she can be more conscious of the things he/she does.

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE FLYING STAR #2 (ILLNESS STAR)

Effects: As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. Sometime, this star can also cause some accident that may render you invalid for a long time if not permanently.  For this year, this star also affects people born under the sign of the Monkey and Sheep.

Feng Shui Cure: Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd or Image of the Medicine Buddha. For people who stays in this section of the house or office, and for the middle sons and people born under the sign of the Monkey or Sheep it is advisable for them to wear a Jade Wu Lou pendant and/or a Medicine Buddha pendant (preferably with Mantra).

Just want to share that the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of the Medicine Buddha on the front and the Medicine Buddha’s Mantra at the back. This pendant was not available at that time I wrote about the 2012 Feng Shui forecast.

Wu Lou or Holy Gourd

THE WEST HAS THE FLYING STAR #7 (VIOLENT STAR)

Effects: This star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. This year it will also affect people born under the sing of the Rooster.

Feng Shui Cure: One of the following items – Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God), Image of Kuan Kong (also known as Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, Kuan Te Ya, Guan Te Ya, Guan Gong), Image Elephant with Rhinoceros. For people who are staying on this side have the house or office, or for people born under the sign of the Rooster, it is advisable to wear an image of Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, or a Mantra Pendant. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that has the image of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT that has the image of Kuan Kong are also advisable.

THE NORTHWEST HAS THE FLYING STAR #6 (HEAVEN’S BLESSING AND MENTOR STAR)

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

Feng Shui Enhancers: Crystal Balls/ 6 White Jade tied with a Red String / Invite an image of Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal. People born under the sign of Dog or Pig who are affected by this star can enhance it by wearing an image of Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal.

6 White Jade tied with a Red String. You need not have the Wu Lou at the end.

THE NORTH HAS THE FLYING STAR #1 (WHITE VICTORY STAR)

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

Feng Shui Enhancers: Victory Banner / Lung – Ta or Wind Horse / Water Feature in the North side unless its in the bedroom.

Note that the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the images of both the Victory Banner and Lung – Ta or Wind Horse.

Victory Banner also called as The Banner of Victory

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE FLYING STAR #8 (WEALTH STAR)

Effects:  It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also about abundance.  This year people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger are blessed by this star.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Faux Gold Coins or Bars or Ingots, Wealth Deity (Maitreya Buddha or Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong). The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT has the image of Sun Wukong, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of Kuan Kong.

This is from my personal collection. I wear this pendant everyday. In choosing an image of the Happy Fat Buddha to be worn as a pendant, always look for the face. Make sure that it has happy jolly face.

THE CENTER HAS THE FLYING STAR #5 (FIVE YELLOW STAR)

Effects: The 5-Yellow Star is the worst of all negative stars! It is said to bring 5 different kinds of misfortunes! What’s bad it runs in the center of the house or building.

Feng Shui Cure: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. You can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5-Element Pagoda), Kalachakra. For people who stays in this section of the house or building, as mentioned, please move out or if that is not possible, please wear the Five Element Pagoda pendant or a Kalachakra pendant. I just would like to share that THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION has the image of 5 – ELEMENT PAGODA, while the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of the KALACHAKRA.

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.

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.

It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Additional note on the Flying Star #5 aka Five Yellow Star, while it’s the most dreadful star of all the negative star, for this year, because all the stars are in their original position, the Flying Star #5 will not have any bad effect on some signs, on the contrary, they will bring some wealth benefit to these animals signs.

They are the following:

MALE: 1941 and 1977 Snake, 1950 and 1986 Tiger, 1959 and 1995 Pig, 1968 and 2004 Monkey.

FEMALE: 1936, 1972 and 2008 Rat, 1945 and 1981 Rooster, 1954 and 1990 Horse, 1963 and 1999 Rabbit

In Feng Shui, enhancing the auspicious stars really encouraged, however, consultants and experts will stress that it’s more important to subdue the negative stars of the Flying Stars. If you’re on a tight budget, you need to subdue the negative stars first before enhancing the auspicious ones.

Other than the 9 Flying Stars, we also must take note and watch out for the Tai Suey (also spelled as Tai Sui) and the Three Killings, which is a directly translation of the Chinese words (Saam Sat or Saam Sart).

Technically speaking, they are not part of the Flying Stars, but we always take note of their position in relation to the Flying Stars because they are also very important in determining the luck of a person or place and it affects the outcome of the Flying Stars. Take for example this year. The SouthEast has the auspicious Flying Star #4, however, because of the Tai Suey, it might make it harder to get the luck of the said Flying Star, or it might even totally negate it.

First, the Tai Suey. Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a year is ruled by a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English. This year’s Tai Suey God is General Xu Dan. However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

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

This year the Tai Suey is in the SouthEast. To be specific it flies in the SE3 section, but let us not bother ourselves with the specific degree, it’s enough to know that the Tai Suey is in the SE because it’s power will directly affect all the SE section. Be it either the SE section of the room, house, office, building, city, state, province, country, or world. If you notice the year 2012 brought a lot of tension in the China – Philippines relationship. That is because we are in the SE, and the disputed islands are in the SE, not to mention about the other countries involve in the disputed islands. This happened because the year the Tai Suey and the Five Yellow Star are in the SE. Having said that in the year 2012 might see some easing up of the tension because the Five Yellow is no longer in the SE, however, it might also create a war if the Tai Suey, who is still is the SouthEast is not appease.

In the same manner, everybody who is in the SE section of his or her house, room, office, or building will have to take some precaution. It’s very important that you don’t do any any renovations in this sector. If possible, do vacate this section. However, if that is not possible you can always put an image of a pair of Pi Yao in that section. For those who stay in that section of the house, or office, or building, it is also advisable to wear an image of the Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixiu or Pi Xiu). This is because the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu appeases the Tai Sui or the Grand Duke.

 

Piyao4However, for this year I would like to stress that the Philippines is in a compromising situation because we are in the Southeast section of Asia. This implies that we might face some turbulent year. This might come in the form of war, political unrest, or natural calamities. Having the romance and scholastic star when taken in the perspective of the country might not be very good, because this might imply political extra – marital affairs, which means it can mean that the president might not know who are his real people and that some people in the cabinet or elected official might create some chaos. Also, some people might think that they are the best person for a certain position thus it might create political unrest or chaos because power grabbing. Furthermore,  the center portion of the country must take extra precaution because of the Five Yellow Star. As mentioned this is the worst star to have. Obviously, the center of the country is Visayas (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao), this can mean that Visayas might be besieged by some natural calamities. While it’s difficult to say what are the natural calamities because Feng Shui is unable to determine the specific problem that might occur. However, if you look at the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee, although it’s a balanced chart, the strong elements are Earth, Water, and Wood. This MIGHT mean that the calamity might have something to do with these three elements. Meaning the natural calamity can be a drought, or a typhoon, or earthquake. I really can’t be sure which one but these three might be the possible effects of the combined effect of the Tai Suey or Tai Sui and the 5 Yellow Star.

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

You can protect yourself from the Three Killings by facing the direction of the Three Killings that is in the East or staying in the East section of the house, this means, the people who are in the West are the ones who are directly affected by the 3 Killings. Another best way to deal and subdue the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians in the East section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the West, East section of their house, office, building, room must wear the image of Three Celestial Guardians to protect themselves from the effects of the 3 Killings.

The 3 Celestials Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin), and the Piyao (also called or spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

Personally, I just wear my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which has the image of Sun Wukong. I’ve extensively talked about The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven, Sun Wukong. However, given that we don’t have enough time at that time I didn’t discuss one another aspect of Sun Wukong. The Monkey God, Sun Wukong, before he was subdued by Kuan Yin (Quan Yin), The Goddess of Mercy and by Shakyamuni Buddha was the only immortal who won a fight against all the Tai Suey. Thus aside from having the image of the Piyao, which is incorporated in the 3 Celestial Guardians, Sun Wukong is also a very good protector from the possible wrath of the Tai Suey. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is a pendant that has the image of Sun Wukong, a protector and wealth immortal/god, which is also a good cure against the Flying Star#7, and it also has the Piyao which is incorporated in the Three Celestial Guardians and it also has the image of the 5-Element Pagoda which is really good for the deadliest Flying Star the Five Yellow Star, and it also has the Ksitigarbha Fireball which is a cure against the Flying Star #3.

Fu, The Taoist’s Magical Paper Talisman

Published Agosto 15, 2012 by jptan2012

I have been wanting to write about the Fu (Mandarin) or Hu (Foo Kien) for quite some time now, however, I debated whether it is proper for me to write about the Fu because it is something that is not easily available or something that can be bought in a store.

This Fu is from a Taoist temple in Valenzuela called Bi Tsong Put (pronounced as Bee Chong Poot). Depending on the Fu, one usually burns a set, one set is usually 3 pieces.

Fu or Hu is a Taoist magical paper talisman. Fu is an ancient and special form of ‘magic’ or sorcery (sorcery is not exactly negative unless use in a negative way) that uses special characters or images or symbols or prayers or words ‘printed’ on a yellow rice paper in red ink. It is believed that a Fu can store a magic spells and good chi. While anybody can make a Fu or Hu, it entails a special skill and blessing from a Taoist God  for you to be able to lock the magic spell or chi in the said magical paper talisman. To do this one has to be an ordained Taoist priest or a Taoist God medium. The said chi and spell is further locked into the Fu by making sure that it passes through the incense burner dedicated to the said Taoist God, Immortal or Deity mentioned in the Fu.

Anyone can activate and tap into the power of the Fu by carrying the magical paper talisman on one’s body, putting them on the window or door, or placing in the room, or simply by burning them. Most Fu or Hu are burned while one calls on the God, Deity or Immortal represented by the Fu followed by the intent. However, as mentioned, there are some Fu that are to be worn on the body like an amulet, or place on the door, etc.

Fu(s), I believe, is one of the most powerful talisman in the world, provided you get it from a reliable source, and from somebody who is not driven by monetary reasons. Unfortunately, in the Philippines, there are some temples that sell their Fu. I don’t believe that this is right, especially, if there are patrons who have greatly benefited from tapping the power of the Fu, that they sponsor printing of Fu(s).

There are different kinds of Fu(s), depending on the temple and sometimes depending on the purpose or intent of the person needing the Fu. One can use a Fu to invoke a God/Deity/Immortal’s help, to protect a household, heal the sick, or exorcise demons or bad spirits. Some people would associate the Fu like a petition paper, or a court order depending on the purpose or intent.

This is a Fu that I burn every morning. It is a Fu of a Taoist Temple in Abad Santos St., Manila called – CHEAT TAI SOON. Unlike most Fu, one set of this is 7 pieces.

There is no clear record as to what Chinese civilization first used the Fu, however, the Fu is mentioned in a lot of Chinese religious and political texts. An apocryphal Taoist text call Ku Wei Shu or Old Mystical Test, the role of Fu is associated with the last legendary Five Emperors of China, especially with Great Emperor Yu, the mysterious Emperor who founded the Hsia Dynasty.

It is said that the Great Emperor has stop a terrible flood that has devastated most of China by burning several Fu of the Goddess of the North Star.

This is the Fu of the Goddess of Mercy / Bodhisattva of Compassion / Kuan Yin. I make sure I burn at least one set of her Fu everyday.

Personally, I can attest to the power of the Fu, and I use it a lot in conjunction of my mantras and Feng Shui.

There was this one time when one of our houseboy went into a epileptic attack, some say he was being possessed by a spirit, we don’t really know, but I specifically remember my mom just got a set of Fu, burned it and after less than a minutes our houseboy became visibly relax. He was sent to the hospital, but the hospital said that they don’t think he had an epileptic attack, and our houseboy claims that he saw a dark shadow hovering over him.

This is the Fu of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven – Sun Wukong. Sun Wukong has three different kind of Fu. This one is for personal, family matters.

Another experience with the power of the Fu that I had, happened when I was still involve in an NGO. One of our managers got an educational grant in Berlin, but he has to pay for her own airfare and board and lodging. The organization raised funds for her board and lodging, however, nobody has volunteered to shoulder her airfare. We decided to write to several politicians, travel agencies, and famous businessman. Unfortunately, all of them turned down our request, except for one Chinese businessman. When we called up his office, his secretary informed us that her boss has read the letter but that he really hasn’t replied. We are quite desperate already because our colleague is scheduled to leave in 2 days and she still hasn’t raise her airfare fund. We beg the secretary of the Chinese businessman to give us time to present our cause to the businessman himself, the secretary agreed and said we should go to their office that same afternoon and she’ll see whether she can give us 5 minutes with the Chinese businessman. We immediately left, and for some reason, I decided to bring a set of Fu (one set is 3 pieces) of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven Sun Wukong.On our way, the secretary called my colleagues mobile phone and said that there’s no need for us to go because her boss has already informed her that he can’t finance my colleague’s trip. My colleague informs the secretary that we are already downstairs and begged her to still allow seeing the Chinese businessman. The secretary agreed and I decided to burn the Fu with the intent of getting the businessman to finance my colleague’s trip to Berlin. To make the long story short, we went up, had an audience with the businessman, and was asked a single question – How would the country benefit from this trip? – My friend gave her reply and she got the funds for her airfare!

This is another Sun Wukong’s Fu. This one is for business. There’s another one but I don’t have a copy of it, that is for health.

I know somebody who is sick of cancer and was given a ‘death sentence’ by his doctor. He started burning some Fu and now he is well. Even his doctor was surprised that he won over the cancer.

There are a lot more stories about the power of the Fu, be it about money, business, personal problems, etc. The Fu has always made magical solutions for seemingly unsolvable problems.

For one to be able to tap into the power of the Fu, the Fu is burned. You call on the Immortal/Deity represented in the Fu, then you say your intent. However, there are some Fu that can be worn on the body and or placed on the door, etc.

An Unknown But Powerful Taoist Wealth Deity Called – Liu Hai!

Published Pebrero 8, 2012 by jptan2012

In my previous post entitled – FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE YOUR WEALTH LUCK – I wrote about one of the most powerful and recognized Feng Shui tool to attract wealth luck, the THREE LEGGED TOAD. I was quite surprised by the number of comments and email I received inquiring about the 3-Legged Toad. For me aside from putting the Three-Legges Toad around the house, one other powerful and effective way of tapping into its ‘power’ is to wear a 3 Legged Toad pendant, preferably made in gold to make it more auspicious.

A lot of people will vouch for the effectivity of the 3 Legged Toad and while its a powerful wealth charm or amulet, it’s really just one in a slew of wealth enhancer symbols.

Some of the other famous wealth enhancers used in Feng Shui is to tapped into the power and wealth blessings of Wealth Deities. Some of them are The Monkey God called Sun Wukong who is reverred as ‘The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven’ which was featured in THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT; Kuan Kong (Guan Gong); Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha or Laughing Buddha); some forms of Kuan Yin; Cai Shin Yeh; Tua Peh Kong to name a few. Putting their images in the house will help enhance your wealth luck, and wearing them as pendants will also help bestow wealth blessings on you.

The ones that I just mentioned above are some of the most effective and famous Wealth Deities. However, I find it surprising that a lot of Feng Shui experts has ‘ignored’ Liu Hai. Liu Hai is a relatively unknown, though I think he should be really famous, Taoist Wealth Deity.

His images show significant resemblance to the images of Chinese images of the Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha or Laughing Buddha), and I think this largely cause the unpopularity of Liu Hai.

Liu Hai is an alchemist and court minister in China during the 10 Century. I think the ‘alchemist’ part is largely due to the fact that he is also a very good Taoist priest. It is said that at one time the Emperor’s court, during Liu Hai’s time, is running out of gold because of a war. They were physically winning this war but the scarcity of gold might impede their victory. The court facing the possibility of what in the modern days would be called ‘bankcruptcy’ or ‘recession’, the Emperor asked his senior ministers to look for a Taoist or Buddhist monk who can conjure a wealth blessing to his reign. It was said that they called several Taoist and Buddhist monk and while their was some improvement in their wealth luck, its not as fast as the court needed it to be. It was out of desperation that the ministers called for Liu Hai.

Liu Hai at that time is a shunned scholar. They think him a little eccentric because he would usually be seen going to the village well and stay there for a long time, laughing on his own, and seemingly playing with a something that is not visible to other people. And although he lives in relatively a very simple way of life, he is quite famous to some of the people who are in dire need of gold or silver (the currency at that time) because he thus gives them enough money, and he seems to not run out of it.

When he arrived at the court and was summoned before the ministers and the Emperor, it was said that he was so jolly that he appeared to be insane. When he was told of the need to have more gold coins, it was recorded that he requested for a big chest to be brought to the court. When he was presented with the chest, he then requested that it be opened. He then opened his gourd and seemingly whispered into it. The minister was said to have seen a small golden toad with ‘weird features’ to have come out of the toad and went out of the court, a few minutes after, the creature was said to have come back with smaller ‘creatures’ carrying ‘gold pellets’, they then soon filled up the whole chest with gold that the court fashioned into gold coins.

Liu Hai is said to have a name for his pet 3-Legged Toad. He calls the toad Chanchu.

Liu Hai Luring Chanchu with Gold Coins. A lesser known version of the story of Liu Hai is that Chanchu is a poisonous 3 Legged Toad and Liu Hai tamed him by luring him with gold coins.

Personally, I believe think that the story could have been embellished a little. However, what’s known is that Liu Hai is the only Taoist master who ever lived who is able to summon the 3 Legged Toad, in fact, if the were to be believe, it is said that he constantly travels with the ‘head’ 3 Legged Toad.

In Feng Shui, I can personally vouch for using the image of Liu Hai as a wealth deity. I also recommended Liu Hai to a cousin, and he said that the day after he has ‘invited’ the image of Liu Hai in his condo unit, he got the raise that he has been longing for. More opportunities to increase his finance luck has also been constant.

I don’t know where to get a Liu Hai pendant, because I believe that wearing one may prove to be very auspicious. I have been looking for one but can’t seem to find any. However, inviting his image in the house will also prove to be very auspicious. Unfortunately, getting an image of Liu Hai may not be as easy as we want it to be. I got mine in a small shop in Xiamen, China. I then found two more images of Liu Hai in Singapore which I bought to keep for people who might want to get his image for themselves. I have since then pass the images to a cousin and a friend of my mom.

When inviting the image of Liu Hai, try to get one that has the image of the 3 Legged Toad. If you’re able to get a Liu Hai without an image of 3-Legged Toad you can just place an image of the 3-Legged Toad in front of Liu Hai.

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

Published Enero 7, 2012 by jptan2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An artwork depicting Sun Wukong fighting a devil.

Another interpretation of the Monkey God or Monkey King.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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