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.
