Ushering 2019 year of Earth Pig astrological sign 己亥年
04 Feb 2019 11.15 am marks the commencement of Pig Zodiac Year. Babies born before this date belongs to the year of the Dog & on/after this date belongs to the astrological sign of the pig. This is unlike common belief to assume 1st day of Lunar New year 正月初一 (Chinese New Year) as the date of zodiac sign change.
*black numerals are the bad sectors from worst to bad i.e. 5, 2, 3, 7
2019 BAD annual flying stars are “misfortune 5 五黄灾星” in Southwest sector, “Sickness 2 二黑病符星” in Northeast, “Quarrelsome 3 三碧争吵是非星” in South sector and “Lawsuit 7 七赤破军官飞盗贼破财” in Southeast sector. The remedies are found in my report for my existing clients and on my previous yearly forecasts.
One sector to take note is Northwest, although flying star “celebrations 9” represents “happy喜庆” events such as marriage, child-bearing, promotions etc. However one should be mindful when comes to renovation because this is also the “太岁方 tai sui” segment.
General Forecast for Year 2019 – based on the commencement date of “Spring-Bazi”
- 1. This year is going to be a volatile, turbulent, unpredictable and choppy year. Watch out & make Plan B & C in any career move or starting your own business.
- 2. Stock market is volatile in the opening months of 2019, where prices will rise before falling. Best guesstimate low points will be in February (wood-element) and May (fire-element) and the slightly higher points are August (metal-element) and October (moist-earth element) 2019. Through this unsettling fluctuating “roller-coaster” business environment there are some lucky ones who will make some fortune out of this stormy economy (not limited to stock market) 有危才有机 and obviously others who will lose their savings. Not only that you should keep an eye on your investment cost, but you should control the risk of your financial portfolio. Go for shorter-term return plans than long-term investment, to stay liquid. So do be mindful on your investment! In fact in my personal opinion gains from stock market in 2019 is marginal.
- 3. Traditional businesses (dependency on regular flow of customers) e.g. retailing, restaurants, fast-food, MNCs…etc will find 2019 exceptionally challenging because “annual 玄空飞星 flying star wealth 8 八白” is “囚禁 imprisoned” in the center zone. Stay conservative to expand your existing business and watch your “cash-flow”. The more favourable industry are those related to the fire-element e.g. oil and gas and the worst industry is metal-element e.g. 五金 machinery, mechanical engineering, hardware.
- 4. Property market will remained sluggish this year, due to the lack of liquidity in the market. Investors are not keen to borrow money due to market sentiment.
- 5. The political situation among nations also shows instability, with increased tension, dissension, conflicts leading to economic sanctions against each other. This will lead to increased public demonstations, protest marches, picketing etc.
- 6. However the saving grace among these tensions will improve next year particularly West sector i.e. countries like USA/western europe with flying star “1人缘桃花” resulting in amicable diplomatic relationships and China in the North zone with flying star “4 文昌” rationalising their political-decisions. Next year China is also likely to gain breakthrough in educational, cultural and research activities. No doubt currently these 2 countries (USA & China) are at loggerheads but in the end they will compromise for the sake of “mutual benefits”.
- 7. Regarding natural disasters, tendency towards “transportation” troubles such as planes, trains, ship and cars. The increased travelling/tourism industry come together with increased travel disasters consequences. Buy travel insurance and be extremely cautious, do your homework if you need to travel.
- 8. The negative effects of Annual flying star “7 七赤破军星, 萧杀之气” in Southeast sector will increase the tension among nations like Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines. Other likely effects are robberies, riots, violent crimes, terrorism and unpredictable government military decisions/policies. Stay vigilant if you plan to visit these countries during holidays.
- 9. Annual flying star “1” is in West sector so young female talents will get a better shot to stardom than male. If your 14 year old niece has got the right talents encourage her to participate in competitions like American idol or the voice.
