04 feb 2018 卯时 05.28am marks the commencement of “Earth Dog 戊戌年”. Both the stem and root are Yang Earth干支同气thus “Strong Earth presence”. This year will benefit Birth profile needing “earth-element (八字用神-土)”. Since 股票市場 stock market belongs to “water” element. One will anticipate that the stock market will be sluggish. For those regular investors i would advise to proceed with caution and it will likely to pick up after Nov this year. Stock and shares that are related to “wood” element such as textile, publishing, agricultural products etc. seem more promising this year from feng shui perspective.
Some uniqueness of Dog Year is the forming of strong fire i.e. 卯戌合火, 午戌 半合火局 and 戊癸合火. Moreover 戌 is 火库 fire storage. Thus it will help those bazi needing “fire-element” too. If happened that your birth profile consist of 午, 丙 or 丁(stem), and needed fire, this will be a very lucky year for you. Generally speaking this year will benefit more to those born in the month of November 亥月 & December 子月 due to the birth structure having excessive water. The 2nd group who will benefit from this year earth and fiery influence are those born during the months of August 申月 and September 酉月 who need fire in their life. Hence you will feel that the global weather will be warmer this year especially in the months of Feb, Mar, May, Jun July and October. Higher chance of “fire hazard” especially those buildings or main door in North sector or North direction. As for Feng Shui Master’s clients you can check your own bazi lucky and unlucky elements through the feng shui report that was given to you. Notice that i did not use yearly zodiac signs to analyse an individual’s good or bad luck for the year but his/her bazi lucky element and birth month! will do a lucky element by birth month analysis soon on a different post. please visit my website regularly.
Tip No. 1 – Rectify the NEGATIVE energy FIRST particularly NORTH sector
According to the principles of 三元玄空 流年飞星 Annual rotation of the flying star the worst sectors are in black numerals i.e. North 五黄灾星 & 三煞 is the Worst follow by West 二黑病星 both are sick zones. There are 2 less serious negative sectors are Northeast 三碧吵架, 是非,小人 and East 七赤破軍星 money loss 破财 usually due to greed 烂桃花 illicit love affair
Don’t even think about activating the wealth sector Southeast “8” and center “9” IF you have not dilute the “negative energies” of 5, 2, 3 and 7. Diluting the negative influence of misfortune 5 (五黄土 廉贞灾星) and sickness 2 (二黑巨门病星) are relatively simple just by placing 6 items of “铜 bronze” items e.g. bronze keys, wind chime with 6 bronze rods, Qing Dynasty bronze coins or any foreign currency that is made of bronze etc. As for “quarrelsome 3” using a pink colour object that is symbolic to “fire” will minimise the bad energy.”7″ is easy just by using a glass of tap water. However please ensure that your Home Destiny 宅命 风水布局feng shui remedies are all done before doing any Annual Feng Shui.
2018 太岁 Southeast segment and 三煞 North, Northwest, Northeast
Besides flying star principles one should also resolve the bad energies of 太岁 a 15 degree segment within Northwest, 岁破 within Southeast and North sector 亥子丑 三煞 namely 劫 災 岁 煞particularly when there are renovation in progress. See picture. The overlap of 五黄廉贞灾星misfortune 5 and 三煞 in NORTH SECTOR make this location the WORST in year 2018! The situation is aggravated if your Main Door or stove or bed position is located within the North zone, this applies whether or not you do renovations. The negativities will cause critical illness, surgery, disharmony, money loss, accident and challenges. All the remedies mentioned above you should dilute it early, around mid jan 2018 before the new year set in.
Tip 2 – Ensure your “宅命 Home Destiny” feng shui negative energies are taken care
Every individual home is “born” with certain energy consisting of positive and negative energy within a given sector (space) 空间 and time 时间 dimension. Just ensure that your home or office is free of any latent innate negative energy. i will not repeat myself here because it is covered in my other post under “home destiny feng shui”.
Tip 3 – Activate the Positive energy ONLY after curing the Negative
Positive energy enhancement will only succeed if you diminish the negative ones. One will have to be realistic that feng shui enhancement for Career, Relationship and Wealth also depend on one’s individual bazi (birth profile/structure) and Luck Pillar (10-year & annual luck pillar). Every year annual flying star is the same “8” is the rotating wealth sector, “9” auspicious celebrations (no. 2 wealth sector) , “1” for 桃花,人缘 networking/white collar, “6” authority/promotion particularly “blue collar” professionals and lastly “4” for education/academic/knowledge enrichment.
Tip 4 – Buying a House in 2018
if you are planning to buy a house in 2018, do not start renovating from the “North三杀五黄” “Northwest 戌-太岁&亥-劫煞” Northeast丑-岁煞 and “Southeast辰-岁破” sector. Well start from any other sectors than these 3.
Tip 5 – 5 Zodiac Signs to take heed – General tips (because Birth Year prediction is not as accurate as bazi analysis or Birth Month)
Dog – Be mindful of inner emotions and feelings. Consider stress-relief activities.
Dragon – Changes in relationships, career movements, relocations. Prepare, adapt and adjust.
Ox & Goat – Gossips, backstabbing, think before you speak
Rooster – Minor gossips and human relationship challenges. Consider having water-growing plant or flowers place in Northwest sector to improve networking.
Tip 6 – for those born between Feb to July particularly bad are Jun, Jul, Oct
Chances are those month between Feb to July, your birth structure consist of strong “fire elements”. This year your luck is taking a bad turn. Try engaging yourself in “water” activities such as swimming, sailing, yachting, sea sports, cruise, fishing, dipping yourself in the bath tub etc. If your home toilet leak – repair it asap.
