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 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.
