The term “dragon” was dramatised in feng shui to add profundity, mystery and sophistication. Original feng shui classics, term “dragons” as mountains 风水论: 龙脉，即 山脉. 风水 借龙 的 名称来代表山脉的走向、起伏、转折、变化. One of my clients told me that there are “5 Dragons” in Singapore. Read above chinese classics and you will realised that “dragons” are analogous to “mountains”. If you are familiar with Singapore landscape you will discover there are “no mountains”. The highest “hill” in Singapore is Bukit Timah hill which is only a mere 164 meter. Definition of “mountain” in geography must exceed 600m. Even if stretch beyond our imagination on this hypothesis, by using one of the feng shui discipline known as *”呼形喝象” i.e. associating a physical “object” to a “symbol”, i still can’t visualise from picture below there are 5 dragon-like structure. D0 you see the “5 dragons” of Singapore?
Is it possible that Feng Shui Singapore is Water Dragon
Just my own personal opinion i will regard Singapore as “Water Dragon” since the use of term “dragon” add sophistication. Singapore is an island surrounded by waters, no mountains, the highest hill is in Bukit Timah. To quote one of the Chinese feng shui classic 疑龙经 Singapore come close as “平洋龙”. The english direct translation is “peaceful ocean dragon”. Extracts of this Chinese classical wisdom, goes like this, see whether you will agree with me.
2. 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”.
3. (入地眼): “平地龍從高頂發，高起星峰低落脈。高山既認好星峰，平地兩旁尋水勢。兩旁水界是真龍，水纏即是山纏理。霜降水涸龍不現。春夏水高龍背見。此是平洋看龍法，過處如絲或如線.”
Through Google satellite map one can see that tiny Singapore is located at the tip of Peninsula Malaysia. Malaysia act as a strong hinterland with “mountains” (Mt. Kinabalu) and terminates at Singapore. The general mountain direction runs North-West. North-West in Book of Changes is 乾 卦. Hence one can interpret Singapore as 乾龙入 首 “Qian Dragon”. Qian Gua represents Heaven and element is Metal. The sector is North-West and symbolic to Fatherly figure, strong leadership, strongest Yang Element, Mentor, Decisive, Respectable, Enforcement and Management. Based on the feng shui principles of Xuan Kong Feng Shui Flying Star, Period Six between 1964 to 1983 正神方 is in the North-west. You may call it coincidence because Singapore gain it’s independence in August 1965 which falls within Period 6. Using basic feng shui five elements principles, the 2 elements that are favourable to Qian (metal) are are “earth” & “metal”. Singapore economy performs well during the Period 7 兑卦 (metal) from 1984 to 2004 and current Period 8 from 2004 to 2024 艮卦 (earth).
Prosperous Major Cities and enclosed water energy
How do you see Singapore Feng Shui today? Have you consider why Singapore being a tiny little island is so rich? Why Feng Shui Singapore economy is booming in Wealth but fare poorly in population growth? Why Singapore cannot keep local talents from migrating overseas? Again you may call this coincidence, it is due to our geographical endowment. In feng shui 山管人丁 水主财 “water” signifies wealth and “mountains” represents people or population. Give some thought, did you realised that most prosperious major cities in the World are near to water? In comparison those cities that are not near to “enclosed water” are poorer in economic performance. It also have to do with the movement of Earth’s energies based on San Yuan 三元 九运 or 二元八运 in conjunction. Do some research yourself.
Singapore feng shui in Period 7 兑卦 West
In Singapore Jurong rapidly progress as an industrial area during the 7th period which is 1984-2004. After year 2004 not peso popular? coincident?
Current Singapore feng shui in Period 8 艮卦 2004 – 2024 North-East – PUNGGOL 21
Period 8 八白 左辅土星 NorthEast should see mountains in today’s tall buildings 旺人丁 people flocking over there and SouthWest 旺财 wealth energies when water or sea is entrapped by natural or artificial land. If your home feng shui is lucky enough to coincide with this direction i.e. Northeast facing a building and Southwest facing water than your home feng shui shouldn’t be that bad. On the contrary if you see the reverse where “water” is in your NE direction it means financial hardship and mountain in the SW direction it represents poor health! Again coincidentally there is a Punggol 21 and young Singaporeans are flocking to Sengkang, Punggol area to buy BTOs.
Most of us are more concern with money…so let’s expand this “wealth trend” further. See picture below, the foot of the red arrows indicates the good locations to see water in the SW direction based on current period. i reiterate water must be enclosed to consider as Good Feng Shui Wealth. These locations can be consider to buy for investments if you have the extra budget. The black arrow indicates overlooking NE water which is bad. The 2nd picture shows Singapore water trend and the dotted lines are movements of Earth energies.
A good understanding of 三元 九运 earth’s luck energies trend are relevant for investment purposes than own stay. As for home the Destiny of your Home Feng Shui is far more important than keep following the evolving “earth energies” which changes every 20 years. Of course one would want the best of both worlds good earth energy timing and home destiny but that is easier said than done. As for overseas property investments you can consider reading this about the world trend – World of feng shui.
Singapore 平洋龙 surrounded by enclosed water equates a wealthy nation
Chinese feng shui principle state that “山管人丁水管财”. It means countries with mountain clusters are usually heavily populated whereas countries or capital cities that are surrounded by water enjoys prosperity. Good mountains should not be spiky, bare, filled with broken stones or cracked. Water should be gentle, calm, collected, meanders, clear and not strong like tidal waves. It should be deep like the Singapore harbour. The entry point of the water should be large and exit point small. Check out google and see where are all the mountains in the World cluster at…India, Africa, Nepal-China, Pakistan-China…populated ? Which are top capital cities or economies in the World that are build near to “enclosed” sea, ocean or rivers? Find out for yourself.
Period 8 what is trending now
In feng shui terms it is the “Earth” element (mountain symbol), youthful energy (youngest son symbol) and the sector of North East. Hence during this period the North East Sector is consider lucky to have tall buildings and water should be present in the East (until 2015) or South West (until 2023). You will notice that leaders are getting younger, teenage celebrities, pop-idols, younger billionaires. A stronger focus on health and happy relationships is considered another impact of the feng shui period 8.
Trending auspicious feng shui colors and materials are yellow, khaki, earth-tones, cream, ivory, brown in period 8. However this is a general guideline, if your birth profile unfavourable element is “earth” please avoid following the trend blindly. Care for the environment, mother earth, earth quakes, natural crystals, clay, ceramics, stones, granite are all influences of the “earth” element in period 8. It is also a lucky period for any industry connected to land/earth resources; such as real estate, property, building and constructions.
Invest in the future Period 9 2024 to 2043 Earth’s timing 地运
Period 9: South direction mountain 离九为正神，North direction Water 坎一为零神 for wealth gains.
In period 9, you can consider looking into areas in Singapore that overlooks “water” in the North direction. Click on the picture to see areas with the blue arrow, there are more try studying the locations. This is based on San Yuan Flying star that is earth energies are dynamic and shift every 20 years. Prices are relatively cheap now because “earth’s timing” have not reached there yet. In Period 9 Year 2024 to 2043, 10 years from now these are the regions with the highest possible capital appreciation. Earth energies will shift segment by segment not all at once, so pick your property carefully monitor how the trend moves. However in the event of certain development like MRT linkage / expressways to Malaysia and so forth earth energies will speed up for potential investment development!
Just like a person having his own birth configuration, countries also have their own unique signature birthday. Singapore’s independence day is 9th August 1965. Not having the time that the documents were signed i will have to presume that Singapore’s hypothetical bazi is a “weak wood 乙木” element wood born in the autumn season where “metal” is the strongest influence.
Base on this configuration, the most favourable element is “water” follow by “wood”. Metal is the most unfavourable element. Earth is the wealth of Singapore, hence property prices has always been strong. The “fire” element is Singapore’s talent so we are moving towards a very “high-tech” society. “Metal” element is the controller of Singapore’s bazi. Looking at Singapore 6 Cs bazi configuration, our country is more suited to be run by Ministers’ bazi with strong water and wood. “Water” element are those born in the year of rat, pig and wood are tiger and rabbit, during the months of Feb, Mar, Nov and Dec. So based on bazi theories, rules that possess strong “water” element are easier to get elected to be Ministers of Singapore. Singapore is also known as the garden city with lots of trees everywhere which is good for the profile as well. The element that controls “wood” is “metal”. Luckily for Singapore is an island, surrounded by “water” which is good for the economy.
