the Chinese celebrates this new year on 29 Jan 2006. On the eve, it is
believed the Deity Of Wealth(Cai Shen) will arrive to bless those who
pay him respect. Usually,the believers will gather at temples to usher
the new year and in addition pay respect to the Cai Shen. In Singapore,
the gathering are usually at the Chinese temples.
popular is Waterloo Street Kuan Yin Temple and Balestier Road Kuan Yin
Temple. According to the Tong Shu (Chinese Almanac)this year Cai Shen
is expected to arrive at 0010hours.from the North direction. There are
those who do not want to be caught in the massive jam, choose to usher
and pay respect to Cai Shen at their homes. Personally, I am quite skeptical
to this believe. However,every year, I still observe this ritual and prefer
to watch the rushing crowds at the Balestier Kuan Yin Temple. Its interesting!
Pillars of Destiny
4Feb2006 at 0725hours
In the Chinese
astrology system, the year of Dog starts on 4Feb2006 at 0725hours. The
4 Pillars of the year are :
4 pillars we noted that Wood 'prosper' in spring season. In addition WoodH1
sits on WaterE1 .
Wood is relatively strong. Earth is in conflict with Wood. Earth is equally
strong this year. Fire element is favorable (neutral) to harmonise the
conflict between Wood and Earth. From here, we can conclude the auspicious
color of the year will be RED.Though
Red is the in color, be moderate on its applications. You have to take
note of individual 4 pillars and the feng shui birth chart of your homes.
This system of analysis require in-depth knowledge, and its application
is rather technical. For more details consult a professional.
On the subtle
point of view, 2006 is the year of Fire Dog. It constitutes two prevailing
elements: Fire over Earth. From this pillar alone we can also deduce that
this will be a hot and dry year. In addition E11(Xu)
is the grave for Fire element, Fire storing in the Earth. With Fire above,
there may be possible earthquakes and drought in NW regions. Due to the
strong Fire element there may also be a possible outbreak of diseases.
Maybe that's why the WHO is concerned over the possible outbreak of H5N1
bird flu. Let us hope this will not happen!.
Stars 2006 & Cures
From the feng shui point of view, the ruling Star for
this year is 3 and is at the centre. This is a quarrelsome star and can
cause disputes and injuries. It is also in conflict with the ruling age
Star 8 in the centre region. The meeting of these two stars may bring
injuries to young children. Therefore, parents with young children are
to be mindful in their children's daily activities especially with the
hands. To harmonise this afflictions, use red color for the centre of
Potent Stars 2 and 5 are at SE and W respectively. If
your main door faces SE or W, traditionally the Chinese would hang a 6
rod metal wind- chime or a strand of 6 ancient metal coins to dilute these
two negative energies. Basically, any metal objects will do. Do not be
mislead by professional tricksters selling mystical objects and 'charms'.
The Grand Duke(Tai Shui) is at Northwest(NW1). Traditionally
the Chinese believe not to offend the Tai Shui of the year. Therefore,
they would avoid carrying out any movement or renovation works at this
sector. However, if renovation works is inevitable, choose an auspicious
day from the Chinese Alamac (Tong Shu). Otherwise consult an expert in
Another setor called the Three Killings or San Sha is
at the North. Again, it is believe not to carry out any movement or renovation
if your house sit on North.
Somehow, some months or some days our houses will be in
conflict with these stars. So what do we do?.If your house has good feng
shui you should not worry. If you are not sure in these areas, consult
Those born in the years of Rabbit, Tiger and Horse are
compatible with the Dog. Therefore, some believe if you are in conflict
with the Dog, place a Rabbit at the NW sector of your room.
in the year of Dragon are said to be in conflict with the Dog. In Chinese
astrology we classified this as a clash. In addition Ox, Ram and Rooster
are also in conflict/clash. Many people are feaful of a clash. Believe
me, for some people, a clash is good omen. Why? because a complete and
accurate analysis is based not only on our year of birth but it includes
month, day and hour of our birth datas . We called this 4 pillars of destiny
analysis. Your annual luck cycles can be deduce from this system. More
details are available in my book, Unveil Your Destiny.
Some would prefer to let nature takes it own course. Whether
they are in good luck or not, the results will show by the end of the
year when the Pig takes over on 4/Feb/2007. They believe if things is
going to happen it will happen. However, though we cannot stop the rain
from falling but we can prevent ourselves from being drenched. So why
not be prepared.
Feng Sui is an art of living in harmony with the environment.
If you have good feng shui practice in your home or workplace, you should
not worry. Reliable Feng Shui is also like a weather report, it can help
us to forecast the weather for us to make our daily decisions. For those
who miss my classes, there are many interesting Feng Shui guide books
available at the bookstores. Otherwise consult a professional.
