"classical wisdom, modern inspirations"
i was told that Singapore enjoy great prosperity due to the existence of “5 feng shui dragons”. Best way to verify this is through original feng shui books like 黄帝宅经, 地理五诀, 青囊, 天玉经, 疑龙经, 阳宅十书, 阳宅三要, 入地眼 and many more; to see whether the interpretation about Singapre feng shui is backed by any of these books.
First the term “dragon 龙” in feng shui is synonymous to “mountains” to quote classics 龙脉 即 山脉. 风水借龙的名称 来代表山脉. We know that Singapore has got no mountains to start with. However we do have a “hill” at Bukit Timah with a modest height of 165 m. Even our commercial building Guoco Tower is higher with height at 290.7m.
Singapore Feng Shui 乾龙人首 – 平洋龙
Singapore is located at the south-eastern tip of Malaysia. Mountain Kinabalu 4,095 meter height in Malaysia travel from NorthWest direction 乾龙入首 and terminate in Singapore 龙脉结穴. Northwest in I Ching represents Qian Gua 乾 卦 metal element. Singapore is lucky to have Sumatra and Borneo to act as embracing arms 砂手 to contain the water.
Qian Gua represents Heaven 天. The strongest Yang Metal energy. Symbolic to fatherly figure, strong leadership, mentor, decisive, discipline, respect and enforcement. Does this sound like 60-70s Singapore’s leadership style?
Using five elements productive cycle, 2 elements that are favourable to Qian Metal Dragon – Singapore. They are Earth and Metal. Based on Xuan Kong flying star formula Qian gua represents Period 6, 1964 to 1983. You can call it “coincident” that Singapore gain it’s independence on August 1965.
Singapore after gaining independence grew rapidly passing another metal element period 7 兑卦运 1984-2003.
Today we are in Period 8 (2004-2023) – Earth element 艮卦运. Earth produces Metal. Thus for a 乾龙 (metal) Singapore economy is still looking good.
Based on feng shui perspective from year 2024 to 2043 is period 9 symbolising Fire element 离卦 controlling cycle for Qian-Metal dragon. How do you think Singapore economy will perform and will Singapore rise to the occasion? Moreover southern tip of Singapore are waters.
This is my feng shui take as to why Singapore is prosperous for such a small island.
Singapore Feng Shui 平洋龙 ？
In my humble opinion i would consider Singapore as “平洋龙”. Literal translation means level & open space. The following are some quotes from feng shui classics and see if you are agreeable with me.
杨筠松 (疑龙经) ：”行到平洋莫问踪，但看水绕是真龙。
缪希雍 (葬经翼) : “平洋阔衍，去山岗甚远，穿田度水，断伏已多，众水交流，平夷如掌。因此，平洋地最重要的是水龙交合”.
Appalling Singapore Feng Shui
i heard many versions as to why Singapore such a small island is prosperous. i personally find these claims appalling because it was not backed by quotes from feng shui classical books and let the reader decide himself. Take for instance Marina Barrage resembles number “9” and in Chinese 九 eunication sounds like “久” means longevity or the twin dragon, the bagua $1 coin…etc the explanation is weak. In feng shui there is no such thing as “sounding” 9 means longevity, 8 means prosperous, 6 means luck etc
