The Beijing Olympic Games has just closed not too long ago and it was the most spectacular one ever. The smooth progress of the Games brought the World over two weeks of enjoyment.

As I said before the opening ceremony:

"The date picked to open the event is an auspicious date which full of Water Element. The Water Element represents the spectators. This Olympic games I believe will have the most spectators or audiences around the world this time." 

In fact the 29th Beijing Olympic Games had the most spectators ever.

By talking about the Games, we must mention about the swimming superstar Michael Phelps. From Chinese Astrology point of view, are there any special about his Four Pillar birth chart? Is the opening day full of Water Element a benefit to him?

I believe anyone watched the Game knows who Michael Phelps is. But just let me briefly state a little bit of information about him.

Michael Fred Phelps (born June 30, 1985) is an American swimmer. He is a 14-time Olympic gold medalist (the most by any Olympian) and he currently holds seven world records in swimming. (Source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Phelps)

Michael was born on June 30, 1985. The year, month and day can only give us 3 pillars. Chinese Astrology needs the birth hour as well in order to complete the whole picture -- the Four Pillars. I was browsing the Internet to find out his birth time and finally got it. I constructed his chart and did some calculation on his past. I believed that that birth time was correct. He was born between 9 to 11pm at night.

His chart constructed as below.

Secret of Michael phelps Four Pillars bazi Chart

• Metal day was born in Fire (Horse) Month. The Metal element is NOT in Season. Metal is weak.

• The Pig, Rat and Ox form a Water harmony group. The Metal Day has NO support from the any of the Earthly Branches. The Water element group drains the Metal Energy. Metal is weak.

• NONE of the Heavenly Stems are Self-gang. NO support form Heavenly Stems. Metal is weak.

The Day Master Metal is so weak. This is a special set of Four Pillars. In Chinese Astrology term is called Surrender. It is based on a theory states that:

"Things will develop in the opposite direction when they become extreme."

In this case, the Day Master has to surrender to the Opposite Gangs (Elements does not support the Day Master). In the other words, the favor elements must be also be the Opposite Gangs. The favor elements for Michael are: Metal (metal enhances water), Water and Wood. And Water Element is the most important Element to his chart.

The Water Element in his chart represents good luck and fame. The Wood Element is Wealth and Spouse. In his charts he got both Water and Wood elements. He has fame and wealth and got power in the future.

However, at the first two Luck Pillars, the Heavenly Stems hurt the Parents Palace. Parents separated.

Still at the first two Luck Pillars, the Hour Pillar Pig and the Luck Pillar Snake clashed, The Day Pillar Rat and Month Horse also clashed. As the result he had hyperactive syndrome and needed medication.

After 18 years old, he started his Metal and Water luck Pillar. This is an extreme good luck pillar for him.

2008, is the year of the Rat. In Monkey month, Rat year, dragon luck pillar, Rat, Monkey and Dragon form a Strong Water element group. Again the Water Element group brought him a lot of good luck. (2004 was the Monkey year, Monkey and Rat also formed Water harmony group, but it is not as powerful as Water element group formed by Monkey, Rat and Dragon.)

The opening date is full of Water Element. Water Element is Michael?s favor element.

With extreme good luck, he even won his personal weakest event -  the butterfly by 1/100 second and won total of 8 Golds.

Unlike Michael, most of us just got an ordinary chart. However, if we understand our own chart then we can get the best out of it by following the Chart's favor element to choose our own path. We can live a lot more happier!

2008, August is the 8th Month, and the 8th Day, at 8:08pm. The Olympic Game officially opens.

The date has so many 8s in it. In term of Feng Shui, the 8 is a good number since we are now at Feng Shui period number 8 which started from 2004 to 2023. In Feng Shui, it has a cycle of 9 periods and each Feng Shui period is 20 years in length. So the number 8 is a good number because it is in season. Number 8 means wealth.

In Chinese's believe, or norm, the number 8 in Cantonese pronounces "Ba", and in Mandarin's pronunciation 8 is "Ba". It has a similar sound of "Fa" which in Chinese means "Rich or abundant." In our culture if we say someone "Fa Joh" in Cantonese. It means the person has suddenly make a lot of Money and become rich.

Not only that, the date is also the 8th day in lunar calendar.

From traditional Chinese date choosing point of view, we need to look at the Heavenly stems and Earthly braches in the date. We need to convert the date into Heavenly Stems and Earthly branches. For any given time or moment, it consists of the year, the month, the date and the hour. (Well it can be minute or second. But Chinese Astrology works on 2 hours slot.) And each year, each month, each day and each hour is represented by 1 Heavenly Stem and 1 Earthly Branch, it is called a pillar. So there are Year Pillar, Month Pillar, Day Pillar and Hour Pillar. All they make up so called 4 Pillars. And these 4 pillars can be applied to different areas. For example, we look at someone's 4 pillars constructed by their birthday, then we call tell that person's up and down. In their life, what area they should get in to achieve their full potentials.

Picking a good day to launch or perform an event is very import. By using the bad day it will lead to bad or negative result. By using a good day it will lead to positive result.

Ok, let look at the Olympic opening date today. The 8th August, 2008, at 8 pm.

I believed that the date is specially picked by a Chinese Astrology. And out there, most Chinese Astrologers say this is a very good day. However, from my point of view, there is a little bit imperfect. (May be they need to consider the broadcasting time for other part of the world)

So, after the construction of the opening date, we have this chart.

2008 Olympic Opening date Chart

The Chart shows it has a very strong Metal element composition. In Astrology Metal means: competitive, fairness, justice and loyalty.

The Year, Month and Day Branches, have chemical reaction to form a Harmony group which produces Water Element. The Water Element here represents the spectators. This Olympic game I believe will have the most spectators or audiences around the world this time. In China alone, we have over 1.25 billion populations.

The Harmony group is Water Element. The Beijing City is Sitting North Facing South, North is Water Element and it is also called the North coming Mountain Dragon. The Harmony group, the Water element also can help to strength the North Coming Mountain Dragon, Mountain Dragon means people. The Harmony group of water is to further attract more audiences!

It is the Day's Earthly Branch and Time's Earthly Branch clashing with each other. As a result, there will be a bit of trouble toward the last few days of the Games. As mentioned before, there is a Harmony group from by the year, month and day. It reduces the power of the clashing. So it will reduce the level of the trouble. The Dog represents the direction is North West. So the trouble will most properly come from this direction.

It seems that Chinese Astrology and Smoking do not mix. However, if we take a closer look, there are some relations between them. From Chinese Astrology point of view, there is an explanation why some smokers get cancers or respiratory system illness easily. And why some long term smokers do not get any respiratory sickness at all.

Chinese astrology and smoking - quitsmokingWe all know medical research proofs that smoking is hazard to health. Cigarettes contain over 4,000 ingredients. Cigarette smoke contains 69 carcinogens substances. To name a few of those ingredients, they are Nicotine, Carbon monoxide and Tar.

Using Chinese Astrology to explain why some smokers get cancers easily, especially the respiratory system cancers (Lung, Nose, Throat), we need to look at the basic principles of the Chinese Astrology.

The basic principles of the Chinese Astrology are the Yin, Yang and the Five Elements theories. The Yin, Yang is the relationship of any substance or phenomenon. Yin is negative and Yang is positive. On the other side, there are Male (Yang) versus Female (Yin), Day (Yang) versus night (Yin), Bright (Yang) versus Dark (Yin), Strong (Yang) versus Weak (Yin) and so on.

Five Elements are the characteristic of matters. There are five different groups: Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire. There are enhance cycle and conquer cycle for the Five Elements. Enhance cycle increases the strength of a particular element. For example Water enhances Wood. Conquer cycle reduces or weakens the strength of a particular element. For example Fire conquers Metal

Chinese Astrology and Smoking explained.

In Chinese astrology, Metal element represents the respiratory systems of our body, the Lungs, throats and noses.

For cigarette which is made of tobacco leaf. It is the wood element. When smoking, a cigarette is lit and burnt. Wood enhances fire and fire conquers metal. (Metal melts under high temperature) Fire burns the respiratory systems (metal).

In Chinese Astrology theory, each person was born with one of the Five Elements. Any of this Five Element can be strong or weak. For example a person born with Metal Element, this Metal element can be Strong or weak. If a person was born with weak Metal Element, then fire can conquer this weak metal person. This person if smoke he or she will be easily getting cancers or respiratory systems problems. On other hand, if a person was born with Strong Metal Element, or Strong Wood Element then smoking will not be too much of harm to his/her respiratory system.

So a person with weak metal element, smoking will kill him. When I am writing this article I remember sometimes ago there was some news about a Tasmania Premier: James Becon (15th May 1950 to June 2004). He was only 54 years when he died of lung cancer. I looked up his birthday data. He was born on the 15th May 1950. 15th of May was a metal day in Snake (fire) month. He was a weak metal. He was a smoker for over thirty years. More interestingly he was died in June (Fire Month) and fire day. Spooky!! I reckon if he would have quitted smoking, he would be still alive today!

All in all, there are a few things we can learn from this case. Firstly, people born with weak metal element, smoking is dangerous for them. Secondly the Chinese calendar system, the Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches can also be applied to people born in south hemisphere. And thirdly, people with weak metal better quit smoking.

This is the theory behind Chinese Astrology and smoking.

Lastly a question for you to think about: why some people get soar throat after having a BBQ?

Feng Shui Date Selection in Chinese Astrology plays an important role in our day to day life. Picking a good day to perform an activity is very important regardless you live in Melbourne or China. Feng Shui Date Selection is a skill that is highly regarded by the Chinese and not only helps to create potential for success, but also ensures that things go more smoothly.

Feng Shui date selection can select an auspicious date to maximize success for opening a new business, launch a product, get married, purchase a home or travel overseas and so on...

In Feng Shui date selection, a good feng shui day selected will lead to a better result. If a bad day is picked to implement a task or do major activities as mentioned above, will lead to a very bad result.

In short, a good day is full of positive energy. A bad day has negative energy. And both the good or bad energy will affect the outcomes.

The positive energy the day itself has different effect to each individual since each person has their own Four Pillar or bazi chart (their own lucky element). An auspicious day for someone it does not mean the day is automatically good for everyone.

However, there are few general rules for everyone to follow when come to Feng Shui date selection. After following these rules, then we then can pick a day for each individual according to one’s lucky element. Feng Shui date Selection is not an easy task.

In Chinese Feng Shui almanac, each year is made up by two characters, the Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch. In fact not only each year is made up by Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch, but each month, each day, each hour is also made up by Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch.

There are 12 Earthly Branches which represents 12 animal signs. 2007 is the year of the Pig. 2008 is the year of Rat. 2009 is the year of the Ox and so.

The Pig clashes with the Snake. So, in 2007 year of the Pig, any Snake day (the earthly branch is snake) is clashed with the Pig. The Pig is the Grand Duke or Tai Sui of the year. This means that the Snake day is offending the Grand Duke. Any Snake day in 2007 is called “Clashed day” or “Broken day”. All snake days in 2007 are bad.

Any snake day in 2007 is a bad day, since it clashes by the Year (Pig), in Feng Shui date selection, it is called “Year Broken day!”

In the same theory, the day also can clash with the month; it is called “Month Broken Day”. For example, Rat day, Horse month, Tiger day, Monkey month or vice versa. Please refer to the table.

Feng Shui date selection Animals Clash

There are also eight days in a year cannot be used in Feng Shui Date selection. They are the days before the 2 solstices (21 or 22 in March and September) and 2 equinoxes (21 or 22 in June and December). And the other 8 days cannot be picked are the day just before starting of each season in Chinese Solar terms. Normally on 6 or 7 in May, July, Aug, and November.

Another set of days which not to be used is five days before and after the Sun or Moon eclipsed. However this is not happening very often.

In order to see it is a good or bad, the day Western in calendar must be converted into Heavenly Stem and Earthly branch.

Coincident or True in Feng Shui Date Selection

Here are a few examples. It is up to you to judge. If you think it is caused by the bad day, it is. Otherwise, you think it is just coincident. It is totally up to you.

In 29th June 2008, the toll road Eastlink M3 was opened. The date used to open a major road is not a good luck day. That date in Feng Shui date selection, the Earthly Branch of the day Clashes with the Earthly Brach of the Month. As a result, you can look up their share price.

In 22nd November, 1963, if you have Chinese Almanac on hand, you can easily see that the day is a Snake day and the Month is a Pig month. It is a “Month Broken day”. Furthermore it is a day the Heavenly Stems are also clashed. What so special about this date you may ask?

The answer is that this is the day when John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) was shot and killed. 22nd November is also a day before one of the Chinese Solar Terms.

7th November 2000, it is a snake day clashes with a pig Month. It is also a day before the starting of the Winter Season. It is a really bad day.

This was the day that USA’s federal election. The result was that Al Gore and George W Bush went to court to resolve the matter and was led to an unhappy result. Al Gore was lucky.

It was a day on 20th January 2001. Yes you are right. It is a “Month Broken day” too. It is a goat day clashes with Ox month. What happened?

It was a bad day which George Bush swore in. See what happen to him later after using a bad day to swear in (a major ceremony). The 911 and the Iraq war were popped up.

He declared war with Iraq on the bad day too. And the day sending off the trop was on 20th March 2003. Sure it is a “Broken Day” too.

I remembered telling my wife that the war would be prolonging for a long period of time.

The above cases were happened in the West. What about the East?

On 5th March 2003, it was clashed day. This was happened in Hong Kong. The treasurer of Hong Kong at that time, Mr. Leung read the budget on this clashed day. As the result, he was found out he had brought a car a month before he read the budget. In his budget report the tax of this particular car was to be increased. He was subsequently forced to resign.

If you want things to go smoothly for you, you need to find someone to help you select an auspicious feng shui date.

Predictions for 2009 the Year of the Ox by Edgar (Lok Tin) Yung - DEC 2008

2009 Heaven Luck 

In Chinese almanac, 2009 is the year of the Ox.

To be exact, the year of the Ox starts at 0050 on the 4th February 2009. For animal sings, always remember that the cut off point is NOT the Chinese New Year’s day. It is on the Start of Spring and it normally falls on the 4th or 5th February.

For example, if someone was born on the 28th January 1960, even though it was on the Chinese New Year’s day, since it was not yet thestart of spring. So he/she was not considered a Rat. He/she is still a Pig.

The Ox’s five elements is Earth.

In Chinese almanac, each year is made up by two Chinese characters, one called the Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch for the other. Remember that the Heaven is on the top and the Earth is underneath.

When talk about the year of the Ox, it is just referring to the Earthly Branch “CHOU”. However when it comes to forecast for the year, the Heavenly Stem must be put into the equation.

The Heavenly Stem for 2009 is (Ji). Its five elements is also Earth. It is Yin Earth. 2009 is called the Yin Earth Ox. (Ji Chou).

The Chinese characters written as:

Feng Shui Year of the Ox 2009

Yin is slow and soft.

Ox, beef, cow, buffalo, cattle have the same five elements Earth. The Ox offended the Tai Sui (Grand Duke) in 2009. Therefore ox (the actual animal) will be in trouble and there will be news about meat contamination, food poisoning from beef around the year. It may be mad cow disease again.

The Earth (Heavenly Stem) on Earth (Earthly Branch), they are like brothers and sisters. This means the top level and the bottom level are in peace. There are no conflicts between them. The top level means Governments, big corporations or parents will harmonize with the bottom level the citizens, the workers, the children.   In the other words, “Equal” (same five elements) means capitalism becoming proletarian.

Earth on Earth also symbolizes alike, homogeneity, as a result there will be a lot of news about homosexual couples, rules, regulations and policies for same sex couples.

In five element theories, Earth means: Trust, Confident, Mindset, Thinking, Religions, conceptions, philosophy and values.

Chou has embedded three elements in it. Other than the earth, it also contains Water (Gui) and Metal (Xin). Chou also called the “metaltomb”. 2006 the year of the Dog (Xu, the fire tomb) embedded the fire element, with the Heavenly Stem Bing Fire. The Bing Fire able to suck the Fire from the Fire Tomb. That was why 2006 was so hot. (You can read article Year of the Dog 2006 for more explanation)

2009 the Heavenly Stem is Earth. It is NOT Metal. So the Metal will be still embedded in the Chou which cannot be sucked out.Therefore the Metal remain kept under the Earth (Chou).

Metal is finance. With the hints of the five elements above, we can predict that, in 2009 although there will be a lot of ideas, concepts trying to save/rescue the financial market, people still will have trust and confident issue. Confident is still low. Please be careful in January, April, July, and October 2009. They are the bumpiest time for shares in 2009.

Metal, digging out from the Earth, is mineral which embedded inside the Earth (Chou) is not sucking out by the Heavenly Stem. In other words, the production output of metal (iron, cupper, zinc……) from the Earth is reduced. As such the mining industry will be slowing down in 2009. It is on a downward trend.

The Water embedded inside the Chou represents money. Colloquially saying in Chinese “water is Money.” Now the water is conquered by heavy Earth. Just imagine what will happen to your money if you are robbed. With this in mind, it wise to avoid the money being robbed, sokeep them in a safe place.

Year of Ox is a religion year

The year of the Ox belongs to Religions, Conceptions, Philosophy, innovations and Values. In 2009 there will be a lot of news in relation to policies changes, new policies, rules and regulations. With the Heaven Luck in 2009 is a “Change” year. Obama’s slogan for election was “Change we can believe in”. His slogan is matched with the 2009 “Change”. That was why he is elected.

We will see a lot of news in relation to high profile religion figures. Religions conflicts get worsen and more news about paedophilia comes from religions sector.

2008/2009 “Blasting Fire” still valid

In 2008 and 2009, the five elements for the each Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch combined is Fire. It has a special name called “Blasting Fire”. Coincidentally the flying star number 9 located at the middle of the palace. Number 9 star is associated with fire. There will be more burning fire raiding through forest, properties, and volcano eruptions.

“Blasting fire” means the fire it comes very fast and quick. So people should do their best to prevent fire and implement a fire plan. Make sure smoke alarm in working order.

In terms of weather

In terms of weather, 2009 will be remaining a cooler year compare with 2006, 2007. 2009 will have more rainfall again. The average temperature will be lower.

The Water (Gui) embedded in Chou, also bonds with Chou, this means water can cause land slide where places near the seas, oceans, or waterways. We will also hear more earthquakes or collapse of buildings in 2009.

2009 Earth Luck

Earth Luck is to deal with the bad energy where we live, work and play. That is the Feng Shui components of our house and office for the year of the Ox.

Each year, there are three major, Shas (Bad Energy) flying around. These three Shas have the power to override any flying stars combination regardless how good the chart is. These three Shas are called.

1. Tai Sui (Grand Duke). It is located at the North East North

2. San Sha (Three Killings) San Sha arrives at the East. And

3. Five Yellow. It is landed at the North.

Number one rule to deal with those Shas is not to “Move Earth”, dinging, renovation in those areas.

The North East North (22.5 ~ 37.5) has Tai Sui

Tai Sui or Grand Duke is the yearly King. The Tai Sui controlling the North East North sector in the year of the Ox. The North East Northsector is Earth element too. It is related to the digestive system in our body including, stomach, pancreas, muscle and cells. As such, the health problems related to earth could be stomach problem, food poisoning (especially meat from beef), diarrhea, muscle ache, cells disorder andeven cancers.

The best way to prevent bad luck and sickness is not to stir up the yearly bad energy spots. All the yearly bad energy areas have a tigersleeping there. It will be fine if the sleeping tiger has not been disturbed. However, if the tiger is wakening up, it will bite you. “Move earth” will wake the tiger up, so do not dig, nailing, chisel and renovate the Tai Sui sector including the floor, ground, garden, the walls inside and outside.

If your house facing North East North or the main door is located at the Tai Sui sector, be sure closing the door slowly and gently when come in and go out.

The Three killings is at the East (67.5 ~ 112.5)

The East sector got the Three-killings. It covers a very big area. Three killings represents lawsuits, gossips, arguments.

The east sector is wood element. In health, it is related to the arms, the legs, the hips and the back areas. Internally, wood represents the liver and the gall bladder. The Trigram for the east sector is Zhen. Zhen is the elder son or the male master of the family. For the elder son and father they should look after the above body parts well. Be care of traffic issues (accidents, traffic fine, road raid, and speeding) in Jan, May and September 2009.

Keep this area as quiet as possible. If the three killings bad energy is disturbed, there would be 3 unfortunate incidents happen.

Don’t place any moving objects at the East Sector including fish tanks.

Place a round Metal object in this area to dissolve the bad energy.

You cannot change the main door position but you can move yourself away from the bad energy areas. If the house has a room at the South East Sector of the house, then move to this area.

The South East sector of the house has a number 8 star in 2009. The number 8 star is a money star. It is recommended to activate this areaby place a pot (black one) with 80% full of clear of water at the south east area. Make sure it is at south east sector. Do not place the water at the three killings area.

The North has Five Yellow

The Five Yellow, representing misfortune and obstacle arrives at the North sector in the year of the Ox.  If your north sector of the house or office is an important area such as bedroom or entrances, it is recommended that place a ceramic Ox to dissolve this bad energy or move away from this area.

The North sector is Water element. It is related to the excretion systems including, kidneys, urethra, prostate gland for male, bladders and other water system in our body. March, September and December are the worse months. If any part of the ox breaks away, another new oxshould be replace immediately.

The lucky corner at the South East

The money corner is at the south east in 2009. As mentioned above, the south east is related to money. It has the number 8 money star. You can move to and sleep at this area if there is a room. If the south east area is a living area, place a pot (black one) with 80% full of clear of water at this area to attract money.

If you want to conceive a baby, use the south east and the middle palace of the house more often. This means activate the middle of the house and the south east sector by human activities.

Human Luck Individually in 2009

Chinese Astrology examines not only the year of birth but also the Month Day and the Birth hour. It is difficult to exactly predict by the animal sign how each year will affect each person individually at a very details level. Such animal sign astrology is not totally reliable as the system is only examined 12.5% (1/8) of the four pillars chart. For more reliable assessment, it is recommended that to check the full Four Pillars of Destiny with a reputable Chinese Astrologer.

Just based on the yearly heavenly stem and earthly branch, some animals are more sensitive than the others. The most sensitive animals affecting by the Grand Duke in 2009 are the Ox, Goat, Dog and Dragon.

The heavenly stem of 2009 is Yin Earth (Ji). The Earthly Branch underneath is Earth too (Chou). Earth sits on Earth. It is full of earth. In health issue, earth is associated with stomach, pancreas, problem, food poisoning (especially meat from beef), diarrhea, muscle ache, cells disorder and so on. For animal signs are Ox, Goat, Dog and Dragon must be paid more attention to those areas.

For Ox, Goat, Dog and Dragon eat less beef, steaks but more poultry and green vegetables. Green vegetable is wood which conquers the earth.

The year of the Ox is Mindset, Thinking sort of year. So general speaking Ox, Goat, Dog and Dragon will become more stubborn and insist their own thinking. With the stubbornness it may cause a lot conflicts, arguments with others. So be more open minded to discuss with yourspouse, partners, managers, bosses and colleagues and be open minded to listen to the others’ opinions.

Ox, Goat, Dog and Dragon should also avoid go to the hospitals, funerals.

For female Ox, Goat, Dog and Dragon, giving birth in 2009 will reduce a lot of bad energy and troublesome.

Do more exercises, be more active and think positively. For exercises, need to make sure there is sweating for every exercise.

Donation of blood or having a blood test done in January and July will help reduce bad energy too.

The following is a guide for each animal and their luck in the year of the Ox. It is a guide only. For more accurate reading, please seek professional Chinese Astrologers.

Ox (Born in 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009)

Every 12 years, the animal signs repeat once. For someone born in the year of the Ox i.e. 1961, twelve years later, in 1973, it comes to the year of the Ox again. In Chinese Astrological term, it is called the “same animal sign year”. So Ox, in 2009 is having a same animal sign year. As such Ox in 2009 will have a busy schedule, big pressure from every direction. Do not be too stubborn to insist your own principals. Bad gossip will be around. Boss will watch closely at the Ox. Do not argue with colleagues, supervisors or the bosses. Be open minded.

Take extra care with the diets. Eat healthily, more vegetables. Try to avoid beef or steak. Do more exercises. For exercises, need to make sure there is sweating for every exercise.

Barack Obama was born in the 4th August 1961. He is an Ox. Not only that he will experience the same animal sign year effects mentioned above, but also he is having a few clashes his chart. It is a tough year ahead for him. January and August are the months to pay more attention to his news.

Goat (Born in 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003),

The Goat is having a clash with the Ox in 2009. Clash means confrontation. There will be big change for the Goat, like career change, job change, position shuffle school change, moving house or traveling.

The Goat has a yearly star called “Da Ho.” which in English means “Big spending.” So for the Goat spend wisely. It is wise to buy something will be valuable in the future. Avoid high risk investments.

Beware of contract terms if contract need to be signed.

For Goat born in 1991, they must drive very carefully after obtain the driving license. As clashing easily cause traffic accident.

For the Goat, in 2009 if planning of traveling, avoid going to the northeast direction. The northeast direction is the Grand Duke direction which will increase the level of the clash.

Blood Donation is encouraged and is one of the best ways to reduce bad luck and on the hand attract good luck in 2009.

If blood donation scares you, try to do a blood test or visit a dentist in Jan and July 2009.

Dragon (Born in 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000)

Beware of lawsuit in partnership with others. It may happen in April, July and October. It is better to be conservative than aggressive. Keep all the ideas in your heart. Do not be presumptuous to give ideas.

It is important to keep clam since there will be a lot of different ideas exchange with the Boss or colleagues.

Dog (Born in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006)

The dog has a penalty relationship with the Ox. This means that the Dog will be easily punished by their superiors or by the Law. Be very careful on what to say in public speaking especially in July. Easily break rules, like traffic rules and get penalty and fine.

Rat (Born 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996) will be much better than in 2008. The bad gossips or lawsuit is going

away slowly. The Rat and the Tai Sui bond together this year. The bonding means in the year of the Ox, Rat will be meeting new friends, new relationship and new partnership. Whether the new friendship, relationship or partnership is good or bad, it is depending on the Four Pillars chart. If Earth is one of the favor elements, then obviously the end result will be on the good side. The positive changes normally start toward the birthday month.

Tiger (Born in 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998)

In the year of the Ox will be a busy year for the Tiger. Tiger’s five elements is wood. Wood conquers earth the Tai Sui as well as underground bonding with the Tai Sui. This means for the working tigers, they would get power/authority from the superiors. However the Tiger will be segregated by the others.

Rabbit (Born in 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999), the relationship impact from the year of the Rat is gradually faded away. Thelawsuit will also have a clear outcome and fading away.

Predictions for 2010 the Year of the Tiger by Edgar (Lok Tin) Yung - Jan 2010

2010 The Heaven Luck

In Chinese almanac, 2010 is the year of the Tiger.

To be exact, the year of the Tiger starts at 0648 in the morning on the 4th February 2010. (Start of spring) The time 0648 is based on longitude 120 degree. (You need to adjust your local time accordingly)

For animal signs, always remember that the cut off point is NOT on the Chinese New Year’s day. It is on the “Start of Spring” and it normally falls on the 4th or 5th February each year.

For example, if someone was born on the 28th January 1960, even though it was on the Chinese New Year’s day, since it was not yet the “Start of Spring”, so he/she was not considered a Rat. He/she is still a Pig.

The year 2010 is year of the Tiger. Tiger’s element is Wood. (Interestingly, Tiger Wood is having troubles in the Year of the Ox and Tiger)

In Chinese almanac, each year is made up by two Chinese characters, one called the Heavenly Stem and the other called Earthly Branch. Remember that the Heaven is on the top and the Earth is underneath.

When talk about the year of the Tiger, it is only just referring to the Earthly Branch “Yin” (Tiger). However when it comes to forecast for the year, the Heavenly Stem must be put into the equation.

The Heavenly Stem for 2010 is (Geng). Its element is Metal. It is Yang Metal. 2010 is called the Yang Metal Tiger. (Geng Yin).

The Chinese characters for 2010 written as below:

2010

+ Metal (Geng) + Wood (Yin) Yang is Fast

2010, the Yang Metal sits on Yang Wood. Yang Metal destroys Yang Wood. As Yang is active, fast, so in 2010 year of the Tiger, there will be full of conflicts and they are happening very fast. It all starts from the top levels or the governing levels regardless public or private organizations.

In 2010, it is the top levels bullying or suppressing the bottom levels.

In 2010 year of the Yang Metal Tiger, everything will happen and change in a very fast pace.

Do not suppress the younger generation.

Be patient in the first 3 quarters of 2010.

Learn and absorb more knowledge as you need wisdom to resolve the conflicts.

Yang Metal reduces the strength of Earth element. Yang Wood destroys Earth element. 2010 Year of the Tiger, the Earth element will be hurt. There are a few meanings to this. The direct affect is the property price would have some impact. (In exactly 60 years ago, there was land reform in China)

Metal sits on Wood elements. Metal hurts Wood element. Wood element is paper industry, teaching, forestry, publishing industry and Wood related element industry. These industries are facing challenge.

Yin (Tiger) has embedded three elements in it. Other than the Wood (Jia), it also contains Fire (Bing) and Earth (Wu).

Yin (Tiger) is the birth place of Fire.

Fire is stored inside the Yin (Tiger). It has the potential of bushfire again. It is January, February and March for South Hemisphere and May, June and July for North Hemisphere.

The Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch of 2010 have no water element in them. Water is the bridge element of Metal and Wood. This means there is lack of communication between the Stem and Branch. Communicate and understand each other is important.

For individual, swimming, walking on the beach can gain some Water element.

Water element is wisdom. There is no water element in 2010, so there will be a lot of stupid ideas or policies coming from the top to the bottom levels.

The Chinese sages taught us ways to resolve the conflicts using five elements. Metal is Justice. Wood is kindness. Water is wisdom. Earth is trust. Fire is courtesy.

There are two ways to reduce the conflicts in 2010.

1.    Using Yi Wood. Yi & Geng combine which means (Yi) kindness to soften the conflicts.

2.    Using Gui Water. Gui (wisdom) water can reduce the strength of Metal.

As for top levels, they must act kindly to their subordinates and for workers be wise to your boss. The tops need to improve kindness and the general levels need to improve wisdom, knowledge.
The Year of the Tiger the growth is suppressed

The year of the Tiger is Yang Metal and Yang Wood. Wood means growth. In order for wood to grow well, it needs water and soil. However, the Heavenly Stem and Earthly branch in 2010 have no Water and Earth (soil). The growth is suppressed. Be very careful in May, August, and September 2010 if you are on the share market.

2010, 2011 “Pine Tree Wood” Year

2010 and 2011 the five elements for each year’s Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch combine and produce Wood element. It has a special name called “Pine Tree Wood”.

Pine Tree Wood is forest, paper industry, teaching, forestry and publishing industry (There will be problem of forests and land).

Also for the flying star number 8 located at the middle of the palace in 2010. Number 8 star is associated with young children. The element of number 8 is Earth. In term of Feng Shui age 2004 – 2023 is period 8. So the flying star number 8 also means prosperity and wealth.

However, the Wealth (Earth element) is controlled by the “Pine Tree Wood”, both Wood element and Earth element get hurt.

As say number 8 means young children, in 2010 there will be a lot of bad news about the digestive system or skin problems of young children.

In terms of weather

In terms of weather, 2010 will be a hotter year compare with 2007. 2008. But it will have more rainfall. The average temperature will be slight higher.

The year of Tiger has 10 dragons producing water. Dragon is Water storage. Each year the more the dragons produce water, the more rainfall it produces. However, this means water can cause land slide where places near the seas, oceans, or waterways. We will also hear more earthquakes or collapse of buildings.

2010 The Earth Luck

Earth Luck is to deal with the bad energy where we live, work and play. That is the Feng Shui components of our house and office for the year of the Tiger.

Each year, there are three major, Shas (Bad Energy) flying around. These three Shas have the power to override any flying stars combination regardless how good the chart is. These three Shas are called.

1. Tai Sui (Grand Duke). It is located at the North East East.

2. San Sha (Three Killings) San Sha arrives at the North. And

3. Five Yellow. It is landed at the Southwest.

Number one rule to deal with those Shas is not to “Move Earth”, dinging, renovation in those areas/sectors.

The Northeast East (52.5 ~ 67.5) has Tai Sui

Tai Sui or Grand Duke is the yearly King. The Tai Sui controlling the Northeast East sector in the year of the Tiger. The Northeast East sector is Wood element. It is related to the Wood system in our body including, the liver, the gall bladder, arms and legs, the health problems related to Wood element could be liver problems (alcoholic problems), gall bladder stone, broken arms and legs.

The best way to prevent bad luck and sickness is not to stir up the yearly bad energy spots/sector. Yearly bad energy is like a sleeping tiger. It will be fine if the sleeping tiger has not been disturbed. However, if the tiger is wakening up, it will bite you. “Move earth”, renovation, will wake the tiger up, so do not dig, nailing, chisel and renovate the Tai Sui sector including the floor, ground, garden, the walls inside and outside.

If your house facing Northeast East or the main door is located at the Tai Sui sector, be sure closing the door slowly and gently when come in and go out, as loud noise can trigger the bad energy.

The Trigram for Northeast East is Gen. Gen is young Child or the youngest son of the family. Gen also represents Hands, Back, Nose and Stomach. If any problems found in relation to those areas, look at what happen in the Northeast East sector of your house.

The Three killings is at the North (337.5 ~ 22.5)

The North sector got the Three-killings. It covers a very big area. Three killings represent lawsuits, gossips, arguments.

The North sector is water element. In health, it is related to the excretion systems including, kidneys, urethra, prostate gland for male, bladders and other water system in our body. May, August and December are the worst months.

Make sure the north sector is clean and tidy. Keep this area as quiet as possible. If the three killings bad energy is disturbed, there would be 3 unfortunate incidents.

Don’t place any moving objects there including fish tanks.

It is recommended that place a ceramic Ox to dissolve this bad energy or use a square ceramic plate and place 5 stones (1 in the middle of the plate and 4 at each side like a cross +) in it.

You cannot change the main door position but you can move yourself away from the bad energy areas.

The Southwest has Five Yellow (202.5 ~ 247.5)

The Five Yellow, representing misfortune and obstacle arrives at the Southwest sector in the year of the Tiger.  If your Southwest sector of the house or office is an important area such as bedroom or entrances, it is recommended that place a Metal object to dissolve this bad energy or move away from this area. Other than metal objects, you can also place a pot plant or 3 bamboos in a vase and place in the Southwest area.

The trigram of the Southwest sector is Kun. Trigram Kun is related to Mother, the oldest female in the family. Kun also represents abdomen, stomach and pancreas.

The lucky star number 8 is in the middle

The lucky star number 8 which means prosperity is located in the middle palace in 2010. As mentioned above, it is related to money. There are a few ways you can activate the money star.

You can move to and sleep at this area if there is a room. If the middle of the house is a living area, place a pot (black one) with 80% full of clear of water at this area to attract money.

If you want to conceive a baby, use the Northwest and the middle palace of the house more often. This means activate the middle of the house and the Northwest sector by human activities.

Human Luck Individual animal sign in 2010 

Chinese Astrology examines not only the year of birth but also the Month Day and the Birth hour. It is difficult to exactly predict by the animal sign how each year will affect each person individually at a very details level. Such animal sign astrology is not totally reliable as the system is only examined 12.5% (1/8) of the four pillars chart. For more reliable assessment, it is recommended that to check the full Four Pillars of Destiny with a reputable Chinese Astrologer.

Just based on the yearly heavenly stem and earthly branch, some animals are more sensitive than the others. The most sensitive animals affecting by the Grand Duke in 2010 are the Tiger, Monkey, Snake and Pig.

The Heavenly Stem of 2010 is Yang Metal (Geng). The Earthly Branch underneath is Wood (Yin Tiger). Metal controls Wood. In health issue, Wood element could be liver problems (alcoholic problems), gall bladder stone, broken arms and legs.

So for animal signs of Tiger, Monkey, Snake and Pig, make sure drive carefully and drink moderately.

Tiger, Monkey, Snake and Pig should also avoid go to the hospitals, funerals.

For female (age 18 – 45) of Tiger, Monkey, Snake and Pig, giving birth in 2010 will reduce a lot of bad energy and troublesome.

Predictions for 2011 the Year of the Rabbit Feng Shui, Chinese Astrology by Edgar Lok Tin Yung - Dec 2010

Most of the Chinese Astrology Consultants or Feng Shui Masters nowadays using the Start of Spring day and time with the year and month to construct a Four Pillars chart to predict events for the coming year. In my opinion, using the Start of Spring day and time to predict for the coming year is wrong. Yearly prediction should use the Jia zi cycles and look at three different angles. They are the Heaven Luck, Earth Luck and Man Luck.

2011 The Heaven Luck

The Heaven luck is looking at the issues catching everyone’s eyes and the social phenomenon. What you should pay attention to.

In Chinese almanac, 2011 is the year of the Rabbit. (Mao)

To be exact, the year of the Rabbit starts at 1533, the moment on the “Start of Spring” on the 4th February 2011 Melbourne daylight saving time.

For animal sings, always remember that the cut off point is NOT on the Chinese New Year’s day. It is on the “Start of Spring” and it normally falls on the 4th or 5th February each year.

The year 2011 is year of the Rabbit and its element is Wood.

In Chinese almanac, each year is made up by two Chinese characters, one called the Heavenly Stem and the other called Earthly Branch. Remember that the Heaven is on the top and the Earth is underneath.

When talk about the year of the Rabbit predication, the Heavenly Stem must be take into the equation.

The Heavenly Stem for 2011 is Xin. It is the element of Yin Metal. 2011 is called the Yin Metal Rabbit. (Xin Mao).

The Chinese characters for the Heavenly Stem 2011 written as below:

Feng Shui Year of the Rabbit 2011

Chinese word year of the Rabbit

Yin Metal (Xin) Yin Wood Rabbit (Mao) Yin is slow and secretive

2011, the year of the Rabbit, the heaven luck is somehow very much alike last year 2010, the year of the Tiger, except that the stem and branch are Yin. Yin is slow and secretive.

2011, the Yin Metal sits on Yin Wood Rabbit.

Yin metal is a small metal object. It symbolises a small knife blade, or a dagger. Mao is wood. It symbolises the back, neck, hip, and liver. So in the year of Rabbit, there will be plenty of secretive stabbings or plots. Health issues there will be outbreak of hepatitis in the east coast in USA, China or Australia.

Yin Metal sits on Yin Wood. It all starts from the top levels or the governing levels regardless public or private organizations. Yin is slow and it is the second half of the year in 2011, and 8th September to 7th October is the most impact month in the year of Rabbit.

In 2011, it is the year of top levels still bullying or suppressing the bottom levels. The top levels will secretly plot against the lower levels or giving out some unexpected cunning attack. I forecasted that the top levels are bulling the lower level last year. You may still remember the big bank put the interest rate up much higher than the Reserve Bank increases.

In 2011, it is the year of the yin metal sits on yin wood Rabbit; everything will happen and change in a slower pace at the second half of year from August 2011 to January 2012.

2011, the year of Rabbit is a peach color year which having to do with romance, especially illicit romance, sex scandals and sexual affairs. The year of the Rabbit will have lot more news similar to the year of the Rat in 2008. For example, something like New York Governor Elliot Spitzer prostitute scandal, Jess Origliasso, Carla Bruni-Sarkozi, Edison Chen nude photos cases and so on.

It is very much the same as the year of the Tiger in 2010. The Yin Metal reduces the strength of Earth element. Yin Wood destroys Earth element. 2011 the year of the Rabbit, the Earth element will be hurt. There are a few meanings to this. The direct affect is the property price would have some impact. (I predicted this in 2009 for 2010, as you may be aware that the house price slows down sharply in Melbourne or in Hong Kong). This property price issue will remain very much the same in 2011 especially from August 2011 onward to January 2012.

Last year, I predicted: “The Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch of 2010 have no water element in them. Water is the bridge element of Metal and Wood. This means there is lack of communication between the Stem and Branch. Communicate and understand each other are important.”

(Mr. Rudd was dumped due to lack of communication with his colleagues.)

The year of the Rabbit, the growth is suppressed. Be very careful in March, June, September and December 2011 if you are on the share market.

2010 and 2011 “Pine Tree Wood” Year

Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch combine and produce Wood element for 2010 and 2011. It has a special name called “Pine Tree Wood”.

Pine Tree Wood is forest, paper industry, teaching, forestry and publishing industry. There will be problem of forests and land. (Teaching and education industry has a very big impact in 2010 since the number of overseas students has dropped 40%)

Also for the flying star number 7 locates at the middle of the palace in 2011. Number 7 is associated with young girls, mouths and gossip. The element of number 7 is Metal. Metal cuts the “Pine Tree Wood” that means there will be large scale of forestry destruction or nature disasters.

Number 7 in Feng Shui also represents bandit or robber. We will see more robberies in 2011 around the world. They are using metal objects – knives or daggers.

In term of Feng Shui age 2004 – 2023 is period 8 and 8 for this 20 years which is located in the middle. The annual flying star number in the middle palace for 2011 is 7. 7 and 8 are both located in the middle palace for the year of the Rabbit. 7 is young girl and 8 is young boy. Dui and Gen forms the most lust trigram in I-Chang. So therefore, in the year of Rabbit, we will see a lot romance, especially illicit romance, sex scandals and sexual affairs. But this Gwa is benefit to the entertainment industry.

In terms of weather, temperature in 2011 will be a mild year compare with 2010. But it will have medium rainfall. The average temperature will be slight lower.

The year of the rabbit is four dragons producing water. Dragon is the water storage. Each year the more the dragons (maximum up to 12) produce water, the more rainfall it produces. In 2010 there were 10 dragons produce water, hence we saw flooding everywhere.

2011 The Earth Luck Feng Shui

Earth Luck is to deal with the bad energy where we live, work and play. That is the Feng Shui components of our house and office for the year of the Rabbit.

Each year, there are three major big Sha (Bad Energy) flying around. These three Sha have the power to override any flying stars combination regardless how good the chart is. These three Sha are called the Grand duke or Tai Sui, Three Killings and Five Yellow.

1. Tai Sui (Grand Duke). It is located at the East.

2. San Sha (Three Killings) arrives at the West

3. Five Yellow. It is landed at the East.

The number one rule to deal with Sha energy is not to “Move Earth”, digging the ground or renovating in those areas/sectors inside or outside the house.

A Feng Shui Saying stated that: “Avoid big Sha. Cure medium Sha. Neglect tiny Sha.”

The East 2 Mao (82.5 – 97.5 degree) has Tai Sui

Tai Sui or Grand Duke is the yearly King. The Tai Sui controlling the East 2 Mao sector in the year of the Rabbit. The East 2 sector is Wood element. It is related to the wood system in our body including, the liver, the gall bladder, arms and legs, so the health issues related to wood element could be liver problems (alcoholic problems), gall bladder stone, broken arms and legs if the main door is facing east 2. Man age at mid 40s should pay more attention if living in such facing house.

The best way to prevent bad luck and sickness is not to stir up the yearly bad energy spots/sector. Yearly bad energy is like a sleeping tiger. It will be fine if the sleeping tiger has not been disturbed. However, if the tiger is wakening up, it will bite you. “Move earth”, renovation, will wake the tiger up, so do not dig, nailing, chisel and renovate the Tai Sui sector including the floor, ground, garden, the walls inside and outside.

If your house facing East or the main door is located at the Tai Sui sector East 2, be sure closing the door slowly and gently when coming in or going out, as loud noise (sound waves) can trigger the bad energy too as sound waves are energy too.

To reduce the impact of the Tai Sui, place a round metal object beside the east facing door.

The Three killings is at the West (Geng W1, You W2, Xin W3 247.5 ~ 292.5)

The West sector gets the Three-killings in 2011. It covers a very big area. Three killings represent lawsuits, gossips, arguments. And it is at the young girl area.

The West sector is metal element. In health, it is related to the respiratory system including, lung, throat, nose. The West belongs to young girl. This means that if a house is facing west, the youngest girl of the house would easily have such problems.

Young girls, beware of love swindler if you sleep at the west of sector of the house.

In the world scale Feng Shui, the west sector is Europe, 2011 the year of the Rabbit is not a very stable year for Europe. You can see this starting at Christmas time.

Make sure the west sector of the house is clean and tidy. Keep this area as quiet as possible. If the three killings bad energy is disturbed, there would be 3 unfortunate incidents.

Luckily, in 2011 the annual flying star number 9 flies to the west. There will be some joyous events to compensate the misfortunate. But it increases romance for young girls.

To reduce the impact of the three killings place a black vase at the west and keeps 80% full of clear water in it. If the water gets dirty or greasy, change the water.

The Five Yellow, representing misfortune and obstacle arrives at the east sector in the year of the Rabbit too.  The East sector has double Sha Chi. the five yellow together with Tai Sui is the worse combo. If your east sector of the house or office is an important area such as bedroom or entrances, it is recommended that place a motionless round metal object to dissolve this bad energy or move away from this area.

The money star number 8 which means prosperity is located in the northwest in 2011. As mentioned above, it is related to incoming money. There are a few ways you can activate the money star.

Predictions for 2012 the Year of the Dragon - by Edgar Lok Tin Yung - Dec 2011

2012 The Earth Luck - Feng Shui

Earth Luck is to deal with the bad energy where we live, work and play. That is the Feng Shui components of our house and office for the year of the Dragon.

Each year, there are three major big Sha  (煞氣Bad Energy) flying around. These three Sha have the power to override any flying stars combination regardless how good the natal flying star chart is. These three Sha are called the Grand duke or Tai Sui (太歲), Three-killings (三煞) and Five Yellow (五黃).

1. Tai Sui (Grand Duke). It is located at the South East.

2. San Sha (Three-killings) arrives at the South

3. Five Yellow. It is landed at the South East.

The number one rule to deal with Sha energy is NOT to “Move Earth”, digging the ground or renovating in those areas/sectors inside or outside the house.

A Feng Shui saying stated that: “Avoid big Sha. Cure medium Sha. Neglect tiny Sha.” (大煞宜避, 中煞可制, 小煞不理)

The South East Chen (112.5 – 127.5 辰字位) has Tai Sui

Tai Sui or Grand Duke is the yearly King. The Tai Sui locates at the South East in the year of the Dragon. The Chen belongs to Xun Gwa (巽卦) and it is soft Wood element. It is related to the soft wood system in our body including, hair, the liver, the gall bladder, arms, legs and back, so the health issues related to soft wood element could be hair lose, liver problems (alcoholic problems), gall bladder stone, broken arms and legs if the main door is facing south east. Lady’s age 40 - 59 should pay more attention if living in such facing house.

The best way to minimize bad luck and sickness is not to stir up the yearly bad energy spots/sector. Yearly bad energy is like a sleeping tiger. It will be fine if the sleeping tiger has not been disturbed. However, if the tiger is wakening up, it will bite you. “Move Earth”, renovation, will wake the tiger up, so DO NOT dig, nailing, chisel and renovate the Tai Sui sector including the floor, ground, garden, and the walls inside and outside.

If your house facing South East or the main door is located at the Tai Sui sector South East, be sure closing the door slowly and gently when coming in or going out, as loud noise (sound waves) can trigger the bad energy too.

To reduce the impact of the Tai Sui, place a round metal objects such as round metal vase near the South East facing door.

The Three Killings is at the South sector (Li Gwa 離卦157.5 – 202.5)

The South sector gets the Three-killings in 2012. It covers a very big area. Three killings represent lawsuits, gossips, arguments. And it is at the middle daughter area (age 21 – 39).

The South sector is Fire element. In health, it is related to the eyes, hearts, and blood pressure. This means that if a house is facing South or main door located at the south sector, the middle daughter of the house would easily have such problems.

In the world scale Feng Shui, the South sector is Australia and New Zealand. In 2012 the year of the Dragon is not a very stable year for Oz and Kiwi. There will be more water related incidents or earthquakes. There will be a lot more lawsuits or industrial actions in 2012.

Make sure the South sector of the house is clean and tidy. Keep this area as quiet as possible. If the Three-killing bad energy is disturbed, there would be 3 unfortunate incidents.

To minimize bad energy of the Three-killings, place a large pot with 80% full of clear water at south sector. If the water gets dirty or greasy, change the water a soon as possible.

Three-killings is Fire Element which will bring more bushfire to the south region. Fire prevention is important too in 2012.

Don’t place any red objects or moving objects in the south sector including red carpet or red lantern or fish tanks with motor pump.

You cannot change the main door position but you can move yourself away from the bad energy areas.

The Five Yellow also at the South East (112.5 – 157.50)

The Five Yellow, representing misfortune and obstacle arrives at the south east sector in the year of the Dragon too.  The South East sector has double Sha Chi. the five yellow together with Tai Sui is the worse combo. This will be affecting (arms, legs, liver, back…) the older daughter (mid-40s) a lot. If your south east sector of the house or office is an important area such as bedroom or entrances, it is recommended that place a motionless round metal object to dissolve this bad energy or move away from this area.

The money annual star number 8 which means prosperity is located in the west sector in 2012 year of the Dragon. As mentioned above, it is related to finance. There are a few ways you can activate the money star.

You can move to and sleep at this area if there is a room. If there is a doorway, use it more often for coming in or going out. Place six coins or some metal object in the area.

In the world scale Feng Shui, West is Europe. Dragon and Rooster combine. It means after entering the Rooster month, 8th September, the European crisis will gradually clear up. However, in 8th October -7th November 2012, the Dog month, the stock market will drop sharply.

Predictions for 2012 the Year of the Dragon - by Edgar Lok Tin Yung - Dec 2011

Most of the Chinese Astrology Consultants or Feng Shui Masters nowadays just using the Start of Spring (立春日) day and time plus the year and month in Lunar Calendar to construct a Four Pillars chart to predict events for the coming year.

In my opinion, using the Start of Spring day and time to predict for the coming year is wrong. The Four Pillar chart is related to personal luck. Yearly prediction should use the Jia zi (甲子) cycles (Sexagenary cycle) and look at three different levels. They are

1. The Heaven Luck,
2. The Earth Luck and
3. The Man Luck.

2012 The Heaven Luck
