2010 Feng Shui Annual Flying Chart!

For those who are not yet familiar with it. Flying Star is base on the Lo Shu Feng Shui.

The Lo Shu is compose of a square with 9 small square with a corresponding numbers which are numbers 1-9. The numbers are always in such a way that when you add them whether vertically or horizontally it will always add up to the sum of 15. It is very much the same with Sudoku. Only the Lo Shu was discovered and formulated more than 7,000 years ago.

It is believed that the Lo Shu was revealed by a Mystical Dragon Tortoise to a revered Monk. This became one of the basis or theoretical guide of Feng Shui. Each number is has a designated star that corresponds to a certain luck or affliction which is called flying star.

It’s important for us to be familiar with this so that we’ll know whether we benefit from a specific auspicious star or we are afflicted with a negative star.

Let me present to you the 2010 Metal tiger Annual Flying Chart:

1. The Number One (1) which is also know as the White Star/Victory Star/Mentor Star flies to the West.

This star bring good career luck and helps you overcome obstacles. This also brings in the opportunity and mentor luck. If your room/office/work area is in the west, it will be good for you to enhance this luck by putting a picture of a successful person that you admire, or by putting an image of the Great Happy Buddha.

2. The Number Two (2) Star plagues the Northeast.

I say plagues the Northeast because the Number Two Star brings in a lot of health problems, that’s why its also called the Illness Star. People whose bedroom, or office, or work area is in the Northeast section had to be careful. This star is specially bad for the bedroom. To counter this star it will help to put Wu Lou/Holy Gourd beside your bed. While its not as bad in the office it will still help if you can also place a smaller Wu Lou or Holy Gourd on your table. You have to know also that while your office or work table is not in the Northeast section but while working you face Northeast, it will be very good if you can also place a Wu Lou or wear the Sau word, or a Peach Fruit pendant.

3. The Number Three (3) Star which is also known as the Quarrelsome Star lands on the South.

What does it mean? It means that if your bedroom happens to be on the South part of the house, you’ll find yourself getting into more arguments and/or people who are backbiting/back fighting you. To counter this it will be nice for you have a Fireball in your bedroom and also it will help a lot if you wear a Fireball pendant. In the office it will be good to have a Fireball on your table and a image of a Rooster on your table. The Rooster is to help you from office politicking.

4. The Number Four (4) Stars flies to the North section.

If your bedroom is in the North section of the house, you’ll definitely have a blooming love life. This is because the Number Four Star is also known as the Romance Star. However, this may also bring in a third party into the relationship if you’re a couple whose bedroom is in the North section of the house. For single people, to enhance this luck, get a pair of Mandarin Ducks, preferably in pink and place it in your room. For married couple to prevent a third party in your relationship get an image of a Rooster w/ Fan, or if you can’t find this, get an image of a Rooster and buy a wood fun and place it at the foot of the Rooster. In the office this would mean that your relationship with your officemates will be more harmonious. To enhance this in the office it will be nice for you to pink crystal point on your table.

5. The Number Five (5) Stars flies into the Southwest.

This is the most fear star of all, because this brings in the Five Yellow Star! For those who are not familiar with this star please refer to my blog last Janury 21, 2010 entitled ‘Understanding Tai Sui/Grand Duke Jupiter, Five Yellow Star and San Sha/3 Killings’. Briefly put this star brings severe misfortune. So if your bedroom, office, work area happens to be in the Southwest my first recommendation is for you to vacate this area, don’t make any renovations, and avoid playing loud music, or having parties in this area. If vacating the area/room is not possible make sure you place a Five-Element Pagoda. If you can get one that has a mantra on it the better. For people whose bedroom, office, work area or even if you are working facing the Southwest it will be nice to wear a 5-Element Pagoda pendant or carry the Five-Element Pagoda keychain. As mentioned in my previous blogs I prefer the pendant over the keychain.

6. The Number Six (6) Star also known as the Big Auspicious or Heaven Star flies to the East.

The stars brings in a lot of windfall luck or unexpected luck, on top of that it brings in the star of authority luck which manifest by making the person who benefits in this luck being more powerful and enjoying respect. For houses whose main door faces the East will also greatly benefit from this star. To enhance this luck place the image of the Eight (8) Immortal Gods in the East section of your house, and office or work area if they are in the East section of the building. It is not advisable to put the image of the Eight Immortal Gods in your bedroom. However, in replacement of the 8 Immortal Gods one can instead place the 8 Auspicious Objects or Ruyi, both as an item place in the bedroom or worn as a pendant.

7. The Number Seven (7) Star known as the Robbery Star afflicts the Southeast.

All the Southeast bedroom, offices, work area, and specially houses whose main door faces the Southeast is afflicted with this the number 7 or robbery star which brings loss, violence, and bloodshed. People who are in these rooms or house may be vulnerable to being robbed off from idea, opportunity, or maybe cheated which may result to financial loss. At its worst, the star may even bring physical danger. It is very important to counter this star by placing a double – horned rhinoceros or rhinoceros with elephant in the afflicted areas. People who stays in these rooms or houses can also wear a double-horned rhinoceros pendant.

8. The Number Eight (8) Star also known as the Prosperity or Wealth Star lands in the center of the home or office.

If your room or office is in the center, expect a lot of wealth or prosperity luck specially if you enhance this star properly. It will be nice to put 9 Crystals Balls in this area or an auspicious water fall. However, you have to make sure that this area doesn’t house the kitchen, wash area, or toilet because it will draw away all the auspiciousness that the star brings and makes it really bad for you.

9. Lastly the Number Nine (9) Star, which is also known Sovereign Prosperity Star, flies into the Northwest.

This star brings recognition and permanent wealth to the people whose rooms, office, or workplace are in the Northwest. If the main door of your house is also in the Northwest it will bring recognition and permanent wealth luck. Permanent wealth luck means this is the time for you to look for a job or change career, or put up your own business. It is not something that you get overnight, but it is something that’s may help generate regular income or bigger income. To enhance this luck it will be nice to display images of the Wealth deities. You can also wear the mystic knot to enhance this luck if you are occupying a room in this section of the house or office.

Understanding Tai Sui/Grand Duke Jupiter, Wu Wang/Five Yellow Star, and San Sha/3 Killings!

Every year we hear Feng Shui experts talking about Tai Sui or Grand Duke Jupiter, Wu Wang/Five Yellow Star (also called Five Yellow Killing Star or Five Killing Star) and San Sha or 3 Killings, but very few really understand what are these.

You’ll hear people say you should be careful and make sure that you don’t offend the Tai Sui or the Grand Duke Jupiter; the 3 Killings is in your corner this year therefore you need to be careful and protect yourself; this is really going to be a bad year for you before you have the Five Yellow.

Basically, you know that you have to be careful, you know that you have to wear some kind of charm but what does these 3 really mean?

FIRST, THE TAI SUI.

Tai Sui or Grand Duke Jupiter has nothing to do with the planet Jupiter.

In the Chinese zodiac, there are sixty heavenly generals who assist the Jade Emperor in taking charge of the well-being of the Mortal World. Each of them takes turn to be in charge for a year. Due to most of them having a military background, they are normally known as the Military Generals, or as the Cycle Gods. Each of their features and weapons signifies the well-being of that year. For example, if the Tai Sui of the year is one who holds a pen, it signifies political unrest for that particular year. On the other hand, if the Tai Sui of the year holds a spear or sword it signifies the need to work hard and excel for that year.

In Taoism, those whose Chinese Zodiac is offended, or by their sign conflict or clashes with the Tai Sui of the year are advised to go through a prayer session with a Taoist Priest to ask for blessing in obtaining Peace and Good Fortune throughout the year. Talismans that are designed to protect us from Tai Sui are also specially designed every year to help us appease the Tai Sui. I personally design a Tai Sui Protection Charm, however, the Pi Yao is also a very good Tai Sui Charm.

Pi Yao, a Celestial Animal, is a Good Tai Sui Charm.

For those whose animal sign are in direct conflict with the Tai Sui, wear a Pi Yao pendant. Choose one that's really nice. My personal favorite is the one that's made of jade. However, the metal and other semi-precious stones are good as well. But don't ever get something that's made of plastic.

A Pi Yao bracelet enhanced with semi-precious stones will work as well. However, I personally prefer the pendant.

Personally I don't like the Piyao that's shown in the picture. This is what I term as a 'Lazy Piyao' . A Piyao should be defending us from Tai Sui by appeasing it how can a 'lazy' thing appease a god.

In Feng Shui, the area of the house corresponding with the position of that year’s Tai Sui is to be left undisturbed or misfortune will befall the residence.

The 2010 Tai Sui God is General Wu Huan.

SECOND, THE WU WANG OR FIVE YELLOW STAR.
Wu Wang or the Five Yellow Star or the Five Yellow Killing Star is one of the most dreaded flying star. It is said that it affects all the five elements luck of the sign that is affected by the Wu Wang. You’ll never know where the Wu Wang will really strike you. It can be illness, accident, wealth loss, or it can be just about any kind of bad luck.

One of the most effective cure of the Wu Wang or 5 Yellow Star is the Five Element Pagoda. Thus if you’re also affected by the Five Yellow it will be nice to wear the Five Element Pagoda Pendant, or always carry the Five Element Pagoda key chain. Personally I like the pendant better than the key chain.

Five Element Pagoda. One should put an 'earth'/soil from the garden of your residence, inside the Five Element Pagoda and place it at the sector affected by the Wu Wang.

This is Lillian Too's '5 Element Pagoda' Necklace. It can be a little pricey though. At the time of this writing its price at above US$450.00. After much thought I designed my own 'Five Element Pagoda' Pendant which is very similar to this one but priced much less. I was able to get it down by putting less gold but it works as well.

THIRD, THE SAN SHA OR THREE KILLINGS STAR.
Probably the reason behind the name is because three earthly branches are involved. In bazi twelve animals have a triplicity formation called the frames, grouping three earthly branches to represent a particular element. The frames constitute of one cardinal sign, one mutable or traveling (as called by the Chinese) sign and one fixed or earth sign, The Chinese astrological triplicity/frames are as follows – Monkey, Rat and Dragon form the water frame; Pig, Rabbit and Goat form the wood frame; Tiger, Horse and Dog forms the fire frame and finally Snake, Rooster and Ox form the metal frame.

To understand this further one needs a little understanding of the Chinese seasons. The Tiger marks the beginning of spring and ends at the Dragon, therefore Tiger, Rabbit (cardinal direction – East) and Dragon represent the entire spring season. In the same manner Snake, Horse (cardinal direction – South) and Goat represent summer; Monkey, Rooster (Cardinal direction – West) and Dog represent autumn and Pig, Rat (Cardinal direction – North) and Ox represents winter.

The triplicity frame denotes the year, opposite to the frames cardinal direction lies the San Sha location for eg. in the year of the Monkey(Shen), Rat (Cardinal direction North) or Dragon (Chen), the San Sha’s location is Horse (Wu). San Sha is always located in the cardinal directions. Now, Horse belongs to the summer season whereby we take into account Snake and Goat. For making it simple in the year of the Monkey, Rat or Dragon we say that San Sha is in South.

Disturbing the San Sha can cause betrayal, robbery, and loss of money, injuries, illnesses and fatalities. The degree of ill effect however varies ranging from a small amount of money loss to bankruptcy or a common flu to major illness.

Avoid digging, construction, any form of earth works in the San Sha area for that particular year. If it is absolutely essential to do renovation and repair works then it is advisable to consult the Chinese Almanac (Tong Shu) or Feng Shui Consultant like me for appropriate date selection.

The ancient texts do mention that it is acceptable to have your house facing San Sha but it is quite detrimental to sit (house behind) on San Sha. This is said probably because one of the names of San Sha is Robbery Sha and robbers do have a tendency to attack from behind then the front of the property.

One of the most effective way to counter the ill effects of the San Sha is to put the Three Celestial Guardians facing the direction of the San Sha. If the 3 Killings is in the corner of your animal sign, the best way to confront this is to wear the 3 Celestial Guardians pendant or charm, or you can the 3 Gods pendant or charm namely Fuk Luk Sau.

The Three Celestial Guardians are very powerful tool to porotect us the San Sha or 3 Killings.

Fuk Luk Sau are not worshipped but they are very powerful charms also that can defend us from the ill effects of San Sha or Three Killings.

2010 Chinese Animal Sign General Feng Shui Forecast! (Part 2)

As mentioned in my previous blogs the year is sorely lacking of the water element, therefore, wealth might be elusive. In fact, I seem to get an affirmation of this matter when this morning I was going around shopping for a bank that can give me a good interest rate for my dollar savings. It proved to be really a tiring task, the only one who was able to give me an interesting rate is when I went to Citibank Philippines in T. Morato, but even them suggested that I bring and deposit my money in Citibank Singapore, which at the moment, base on my scouting, has the most competitive rate. Nevertheless, let me clarify, that as mentioned, wealth will be on hand with the people who are creative, hardworking, and aggressive.

My last blog discuss the general Feng Shui forecast for the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon and Horse. Let me talk about the other six animal sign.

THE SNAKE:
This year heaven smiles upon the people born under the sign of the Snake. This means that compared to the other signs, Snake born people will find it relatively easy to get anything that they truly aspire for. However, the Robbery and Quarrelsome star also affects the Snake. This means that Snake born people will need to be extra careful not only with their material things but also with their ideas. On top of that, they should also try to be more patient because they also have the propensity to get in to a fight, whether this is verbal or actual physical fight. But this happens to a lesser degree as compared with that of the people born under the sign of the Horse.

This year it will be nice if Snake born people will display the Double Horned Rhinoceros in the Southeast section of their house, or room, or office. The Snake can also benefit from carrying an Night Protection Amulet. I have something that I personally design depending on the year and month of birth. However, for those who doesn’t know me or unable to personally consult me, it will also be helpful if you can get a Kuan Kong pendant, it can be made of gold (as a jewelry), natural stones, wood, but don’t get anything that’s made of plastic. For Catholics or Christians who prefer not to wear anything that’s of Buddhist-Taoist symbols, you can get an image of St. James or Senor Santiago or St. Bede. St. Michael, who is also famous for protection, I believe, base on my research, works best against sickness and evil spirits.

THE GOAT/SHEEP:
Sheep born people finds themselves in direct conflict with the Tiger and they are also afflicted with the Five Yellow Killing Star. This is going to be a very challenging year for all Sheep born people. They will also find themselves trying to work harder just to maintain what they already have. People born under the sign of the Sheep will also have to be careful about their health and safety, this is still due to the effects of Five Yellow.

I highly recommend that all people born under the sign of the Goat/Sheep carry a Five-Element Pagoda keychain and/or wear the Five-Element Pagoda pendant. It will also be very good for them to put a Five-Element Pagoda on the Southwest sector of their home or room. For those who has the opportunity to consult with me, I can make a Tai Sui Protection Charm that will be specifically design base on the person’s birthday. It will also be nice if one can wear an Om Mani Pad Me Hum pendant or bracelet. Lastly, carrying a Tibetan Prayer Wheel either as a pendant will also be very beneficial.

THE MONKEY:
Being in direct conflict with the Tai Sui is really bad, and for this year, unfortunately, the Monkey finds itself in such a position. This will prove to be a very challenging year for people born under the sign of the Monkey. But luckily for Monkey born people, their inner chi are naturally strong therefore Monkey born people will be able to cope and go through the hardship brought about by being in direct conflict with the Tai Sui, they just have to make sure that they continuously try to be positive about things.

Those born under the sign of the Monkey who are also into business should be extra careful, because some people would naturally want to ‘steal’ their business. Also they should try to be more careful in what they say as not to offend other people which might also lead to problems.

One of the most powerful amulet against this concerns is the Tai Sui Protection Charm. Again if its not available it will also be nice if they can wear a Chong Kwei pendant and the 5-Element Pagoda pendant. It will also be nice if they can wear a Kuan Yin charm.

THE DOG:
This year the auspicious stars finds its way to the sector of the Dog. However, because the life essence of the Dog is weak, they will only benefit from this star in a very minimal way. However, because of this dog born people will have a series of small but very meaningful success or celebrations and because the Tiger is the Dog’s ally, the year will be nice to the people born under the sign of the Dog, just as long as you don’t get overcome by the Dog’s weak life essence. To help counter this it will be nice if Dog born people wear the 9-Eye DZI charm that helps gain ‘windfall luck’. Wearing it as a bracelet with citrine or clear quartz or jade/green stone will be great, but it will be better if one wears it as a pendant, and if this made of metal (gold/silver) with semi-precious stones even if only zircons as long as its really shiny it will be so much the better.

It might be also good if one can wear a mystic knot charm or pendant. If this is made of gold/silver with semi-precious stones or even shiny high grade zircon it will be better. Mystic Knot helps ‘activate’ lucks that may be a little elusive.

THE ROOSTER:
One of the luckiest sign this year is the Rooster. Rooster born people can look forward to a very auspicious year filled with achievements both in their personal and professional aspects of their life. If a Rooster continues to be humble, they will get the recognition that they deserve, on top of that, they will see advancement with their career.

To make sure that luck will continuously be showered upon the Rooster, it will be nice if they can make an offering to Kuan Yin every month. For non-Buddhist or non-Taoist Rooster they can offer flowers to the Virgin Mary every month and/or donate a small amount of money to charity. It will also be good if they can carry a Tibetan Prayer Wheel to continue to enhance their luck.

THE PIG/BOAR:
Kris Aquino is one of the most famous Filipino celebrity born under the sign of the Pig. So I guess a lot of you will be asking what’s in store for the Pig this year considering that it seems like Kris Aquino started her personal life with so much negative chi that even brought her some controversy involving Mayen Austria, and that also lead to what, as of the time of this writing, she termed as temporary separation with legal husband James Yap.

I need to be able to see Kris Aquino’s Bazi Chart for me to be able to make a complete and more accurate reading for what’s in store with her, and to be able to shed some insight as to why she seems to always get into personal problems like her husband’s involvement with Hope Centeno.

However, if you are to base it on my general forecast, this also seems to be a very good year for people born under the sign of the Pig. They will experience enormous satisfaction and fulfillment both in their personal and professional/career life, this is also largely because the Tiger is an ally of the Pig.

However, the Pig will have to take care of its reputation. They have the possibility to get into some sort of a ‘scandal’ or reputation concern this year. This might be a little align with what’s happening to Kris Aquino this year, on a side note, only time can tell whether her appearance on The Buzz will help her or destroy her reputation and make the Philippine Entertainment industry a little bit more interesting.

To help counter this reputation concern it will be really good if people born under the sign of the Pig will place a 9-Rings Sword in the Northwest sector of your home, office, or bedroom. Further to that it will also be good if you can wear a 9-Rings Sword pendant, but this can be a little challenging and it took me 2 years to find one and it cost me more about forty thousand pesos. As a replacement, one can also wear an Om Mani Padme Hum charm.
