2010 Chinese Animal Sign General Feng Shui Forecast (Part 1)

Other than the general Feng Shui annual forecast that the public anticipates whenever Chinese New Year is approaching, people also seek out what’s in store for their specific Chinese zodiac or animal sign.

Let me share with you the general forecast for each sign. However, let me clarify that this is only base on the general luck for each of the animal sign base on their order of appearance in the Ba Gua and also base on where the Tai Sui/Grand Duke Jupiter/Year God, Five Yellow Killings Star/Five Killings Star, the Three Killings, and the different Flying Stars positions for the year of the Metal Tiger.

(I’ll discuss Tai Sui/Grand Duke Jupiter/Year God, Five Yellow Killings Star/Five Killings Star/Five Yellow Star, Three Killings, and Flying Stars further in my future blogs.)

While this is accurate for a general forecast, if you really want to have specific forecast for yourself it will help to do your Bazi/Paht Chee Feng Shui reading.

But in the meantime to serve as your basic guide here’s the 2010 Metal Tiger general forecast for each of the animal sign.

THE RAT:
The Romance Star has find its way to the people born under the sign of the rat. What this means is that your love luck will be blooming this year. However, one must also be careful with external romance, because while the romance star affects the internal romance, it also has the same effect to the external romance.

External romance here refers to extra marital affairs and/or even love for other people, other than your partner or members of the family. This also refers to the physical ‘shallow’ kind of love.

Internal romance refers to all love pertaining to families, friendship and the romantic love that a lot of us aspire for.

For the rat, you’ll find your love life really blooming, but because of this might cause some unwanted distraction in the work/career front.

For celebrity fans that wants to know about whether their favorite stars are going to make it through the year. Especially for Kimerald fans, the answer is for this year a lot of people will find themselves getting involved with External Romance, but if your favorite celebrities are born under the year of the rat it will be extra challenging.

Because of this it is highly recommended for married couples to have a picture or image of ‘married swans’ in their bedroom. It will also help if they’ll have a couple of Mandarin Ducks in their living room.

For singles, it will be nice to have a Dragon and Phoenix in harmony charm.

However, unfortunately, the rat also has the Three Killings and the Natural Disaster Star, and this might create several problems to the rat, maybe even sickness. For this I highly recommend for people born under the sign of the rat to have the 3-Celestial Guardians or the 3-Tiger Taming Deities in the North side of your living room. It will also help if you carry an image of a Dragon or wear a pendant with the image of a Dragon.

The Rat also gains the education luck. This means for Rat born students with diligence it may be easy for you to pass any exams. Just a few weeks ago I got a call from Rat born person wanting me to check whether he’ll pass the UPCAT. While technically speaking we haven’t entered the year of the Metal Tiger (in terms of Chinese New Year) I know that by this time he would already have benefited from this luck. So even if the UPCAT 2010 results has not been released yet I told him that I believe he will pass the test.

THE OX:
This is going to be a challenging year for the people born under the sign of Ox of we are to talk about health. Except maybe for the 61 year old Ox. But more on that later.

The Sickness/Accident stars flies to the corner of the Ox this year and to make things worst the Ox is in side conflict with the Tai Sui which will naturally make the life energy or life chi of the Ox feel low.

Therefore all Ox people should be take extra care of their health this year. It will be advisable to get an executive medical check-up and it would help a lot if a person born under the sign of the Ox to be extra careful in what they eat and in how they treat their body. This means that it would be nice to keep it in balance in terms of work and play. Avoid stressful things and learn how to relax, but as I said it has to be balance. If an Ox born person is overly relax this might also lead to high blood or being over weight.

To avoid or to help counter health problems it will be nice for Ox born people to wear a Holy Gourd that’s made of Jade or Metal. It also helps to have a Holy Gourd made of metal or wood place beside the bed. It will be better if this Holy Gourd is something that can be open. I do perform a special blessing for this and put some joss stick powder/ashes that came from a temple in China. But if you can’t find anything that can be open that is also perfectly fine.

As mentioned the Ox is also in side conflict with the Tai Sui and because of this even if the Wealth Star flies to the corner of the Ox this year, they might not completely feel its benefit. To manage this it will be advisable for you to place a pair of Pi Yao in the Northeast sector of your house or room. You can also carry the Tai Sui Protection Charm which I normally design depending who is your Tai Sui ally. I give this for free for every consultation and if I think there is a need for you to carry one. This Tai Sui Protector Charm includes joss stick ashes/powder from Tibet and some crystals. If you can’t see me it will be nice if you can carry a Pi Yao charm or pendant with and the Great Happy Buddha pendant.

The successful, hardworking, and creative Ox, especially the 37-year-old Ox, might suffer from intense politicking from Horse and Dragon born people. To counter this problems have a Rhinoceros charm or wear a cicada pendant or charm to protect you from intense negative energy of politicking. Ox born people should also be careful with back stabbers who might try to steal some of their ideas.

THE TIGER:
The biggest misconception is that a person if he/she is born under the ruling sign of the year. That’s totally wrong!

Like the Ox, people born under the sign of the Tiger should take extra care of their health. They need to avoid overly stressful situation and don’t ever get involved with high-risk sports. Because Tiger born people also has the Sickness/Accident Star. The Tiger born person would greatly benefit from the healing effects of a Holy Gourd. Wear it as a pendant or as charm. It can be made from jade, any kind of semi-precious or precious stone, or gold. Placing a Holy Gourd beside the bed will also be very beneficial. Again if you can get one that can be opened it will be great. You can put some crystals and herbal medicines inside it.

And because the Tai Sui is in your corner this year. It will also be nice if you can carry the Tai Sui Protection Charm. I do make this specifically for the person and it’s for free fro every Feng Shui consultation. However, if you can’t see me you can also get a pair of Pi Yao and the Great Happy Buddha charm.

The Tiger born people will also find themselves involved in competitive pressures and intense politicking. Unfortunately, like the Ox, you might experience this intense politicking from people born under the sign of the Horse, which will be delivered under the guise of concern and clarification. They might say, “I just want to clarify what I heard…” but it’s very possible that they didn’t actually heard it from anybody but they might just be making it up. Be assured that before going to you they would have already talk to other people about it. To counter this negative chi wear a Cicada charm and place a 3-Horned Rhinoceros on your table or bedroom.

THE RABBIT:
It’s good news for the Rabbit. If the past two years has been bad for you, this coming year of the Metal Tiger is going to be a good for Rabbit born people. The Heaven Stars flies into your corner this year so it is going to be generally smooth, peaceful, and productive year for Rabbit born people. You’ll be successful this year but you because of the lack of water in the Bazi or Paht Chee chart for this year, you will have to creative for you to be able to attain your wealth luck.

To continue to enhance this luck it will be nice for the Rabbit born people to wear a Kuan Yin pendant or charm. If worn us a bracelet use the rutilated quartz and/or a clear quartz as the enhancing stone.

THE DRAGON:
The Dragon is the most auspicious sign of the twelve. Nevertheless, Dragon born people will find their luck reduced this year. This is mostly due to troublesome people, which again MIGHT be coming from people born under the sign of the Horse. (There is an explanation to this. Don’t think that Horse born people are bad.) As a boss or colleague they might not like your aura of self-confidence and positive chi. As an employee the ‘troublesome person’ might back stabbed you with false politeness and with their false aura of loyalty. They might also consciously or unconsciously spread discontentment among your other employees and even partners or clients. They might even steal your client away and destroy everything from within. To counter this it will be nice for you to have the Hum syllable pendant, preferable made of metal, and you can also place a Thousand Hand Kuan Yin on your work table. It will also be very beneficial if your carry with you a 3-Horned Rhinoceros with you all the time.

THE HORSE:
People born under the sign of the Horse will enter the year of the Metal Tiger with their head help up high! This is a strong year for the people born under the sign of the Horse. Horse people will find themselves plenty of self-confidence and natural positive chi. But because of this horse born people will find themselves becoming louder, more hotheaded because they’ll start to think that they’re perfect and they’ll find themselves impatient with other people. People born under the sign of the Ox will be your favorite target, only because they seem to be the embodiment of what you are not. You will put extra attention to Ox born people who may be equally successful or more successful than you are.

To top it off, you have the argument star in your sector this year, so this might lead to a court case or even a physical fight.

To help counter all these negative chi, it will be nice for you to wear a Lotus charm to help you have mental clarity and to help you be more humble. You can also wear a Fireball charm to help counter the argument star. You can have this either as pendant or you can place it inside your room or office. You can also wear the Great Happy Buddha charm to help maintain peace and harmony.

I just want to share that just this morning a client from Cebu gave me a call. She said her Horse born husband is starting to be hot headed. Upon checking her husband’s Bazi chart I recommended for him to wear an amethyst ring. I know it’ll work for him, but an amethyst is not something I’ll recommend to all Horse born people. It will depend on their Bazi chart.

This is just the first part of my general animal sign forecast. I’ll share the forecast about the next six animal signs on my next blog. But I just would like to share something about charms that are made of metal. When I say metal charms that you wear on your body, more often than not, I refer to gold jewelry. The Chinese believes that wearing gold enhances the positive chi of a Feng Shui charm. If this charm is embellished with diamonds or other precious or semi-precious stones all the better, because the natural shine and chi of the stones will add positive chi to the power of the charm. Let me clarify though that it’s not a must to have your Feng Shui charm in gold but it’s more of a nice to have for its added benefit.

2010 Year of the Metal Tiger Feng Shui Forecast

Checking the yearly forecast has been customary for a lot of us, especially for those who believes in Feng Shui.

As early as November, I’ve been getting a lot text messages and email inquiring about what the year of the Tiger has in store for us. I would like to share with you a text message sent to me by one of my client.

She asks: “Since it is the Year of the Metal Tiger, some Chinese would consider it to be the Year of the Golden Tiger, suggesting wealth, while others would call it the Year of the White Tiger, denoting bad luck. What do you have to say on this matter? Will it be a good year or a bad one?”

The reason I’m sharing here question is because I think she pose two of the most common question, but before I answer it I would like to clarify that the 2010 Metal Tiger doesn’t start until Feb 14, 2010 which is the date of the Chinese New Year this year, but we will start feeling the effects of the Metal Tiger starting on Feb. 4.

Now to answer her question…

If you look at the Feng Shui chart and element you’ll notice that it only consists of 5 elements, which are Metal, Fire, Wood, Water, and Earth. There is no such thing as Gold or White; therefore technically speaking there is no such thing as Golden Tiger or White Tiger. However, Chinese normally associate metal with gold because of their belief, which is also widely accepted in Feng Shui, that gold enhances a person’s luck or adds to the ‘potency’ of a lucky object. On the other hand, White, which is also sometimes associated with Metal, was used by Chinese to connote a bad year ahead because White is the color of death for Chinese.

It’s not easy to answer the question whether it is going to be a good or bad year, because the 2010 Paht Chee Chart of the Metal Tiger is extremely interesting, at first glance one will say that it is an extremely difficult year because the Tiger whose earthly branch represents the wood is in direct conflict with the heavenly branch of the year which is metal. Those who are familiar with Feng Shui knows that these two elements are in direct contrast with each other. To further add to the problem the whole Paht Chee chart for the year lacks the element of water, even the hidden heavenly stems of the year lacks water. If the water element is missing this could only mean that there is a complete drying up of resources. Growth in all aspect of life should not be expected or will prove to be very challenging.

Nevertheless, there are two heavenly stems that are of the earth element that shows that the year does not lack wealth opportunities. This may seem conflicting with the first statement but what this says is that wealth will be present to those who are creative, aggressive, and hard working. However, this is not like a new kind of wealth but more wealth that stems from what you already have.
