Do you know the location of toilet in your house could be your ticket to romance or cheat?

In Feng Shui, the location of toilet can affect fertility, wealth, health and romance.  In this article we just focus on two aspects– the influences between toilet location and one’s Chinese zodiac sign TO romance and illnesses.

Simply put, IF there is a toilet sitting on your Chinese Zodiac animal sign location of your house, you are likely to suffer the followings:

  1. anxiety and irritability
  2. depression
  3. facing obstacles in work/ career
  4. negative romance
  5. extra-marital affairs
  6. plus the potential illness based on the animal sign listed below:

Toilet location” or degree is relative to the center of your house.  For example, if your Chinese animal sign is “horse” AND a toilet is sitting on the sector of 172.5- 187.5 degree (the horse location), you are susceptible to the illness of heart, blood and eyes plus the problems listed above.  No problem if your animal sign is NOT horse.

“Ken, is there any remedy for this problem?”

The most obvious remedy is not using the toilet in question.  For other remedies, please consult my:

Here in Minnesota can get very cold in Winter.  Temperate was -30C or lower just last week ago.  It is not unusual to have “uninvited guests” coming into my house during winter—- mice.

I have two cats.  But they cannot stop mice from running around my house.  These mice are 2- 3 inches big and run under the stove and fridge.  My cats are too big to get under these spaces.  Hence I reluctantly use mouse traps to handle this problem.

So far this year my mouse had neutralized one mouse and my cats had caught one alive (and played with it!)  I had released the live mouse back to the wild.

Two nights ago, I had heard the loud noise of mouse trap activation while sleeping.  I checked the trap about 10 hours later and found the head of a field mouse (or “deer mouse”) got caught by the trap.  It looked motionless and dead.

I want the mouse to rest in peace.  I had used a plier to release the mouse from the trap spring mechanism.  I saw the mouse body moving slightly!  It is not dead …….yet.

I think as a matter of time, this poor mouse will move on to see its creator.  I want it to move on in comfort and hopefully move to a better realm and afterlife.  So I put it in a transparent candy box and mattress it with “Pureland Mantra Wheel” talismans (往生淨土咒, for purification of negative karma and rebirth in Pureland).  

A friend had gifted me a digital Sutra player a few years ago.  I put this player in front of the mouse and simply turn it on.  It plays a sutra chanted by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

A few hours later, this mouse was sitting up and raising its head!  I put a few drops of water into the box and it had sipped the water.  Later I put a few bread crumbs to feed it.

20 hours after rescuing the mouse from the trap, I took it to a park nearby and released it.

This mouse had jumped out quickly when I opened the box.  It had stared at me for about 2 minutes and then turn around and jumped away. 

Live your life, little mouse.

PS.:  I am curious about the Sutra this mouse had heard.  The sutra name “Namgylma Mantra” (尊勝佛母心咒) was imprinted on the digital sutra player.  According to the awakenstate.com,  “This mantra is practiced to increase merit, longevity, and wisdom, and particularly to clear the hindrances of untimely death.”

It is not unusual to see a Bazi reader taking a quick glance of a Bazi natal chart and spelling out some characteristics and life events of the client without thinking.  Is this Bazi reader a mind-reader?

The trick is to memorize the simple info below.

In general, when a client chart has numerous or none of a certain 10 transformation stars (“10-gods“), some deductions or generalizations can be made about this client.

When a chart 命局 has numerous (“numerous” means 3 or more): 

  1. +wealth (zheng-cai)– likely a stupid person 财多愚
  2. -wealth (pian-cai)– likely working hard for money 才多劳   
  3. +power (zheng-guan)– likely a lower class or humble person 官多贱
  4. -power (qi-sha)– likely dies prematurely or tragically 杀多死
  5. +resource (zheng-yin)– likely alone (widow/ widower/ orphan etc.) 印多孤
  6. -resource (pian-yin)– likely a vicious/treacherous person 枭多凶   
  7. +output (shang-guan) —  likely a provocative or challenging person 伤多害       
  8. -output (shi-shen) — worries too much 食多愁
  9. yang-ren (knives)–  likely has disability/ handicap 刃多残
  10. +peer (jie-cai)– encounters more failures than successes 劫多败  
  11. Luk (-peer, bi-jian)  likely living in poverty 禄多贫
  12. traveling horses (yin, shen, si, hai)— running around hectic working 马多奔波
  13. clashes — unstable/ insecure life 冲多不安
  14. combinations—  a sociable an enthusiastic person 合多热情     
  15. yang pillars—  an open-minded and frank person with no hidden agenda 阳多坦荡
  16. yin pillars—  a sullen and calculated person 阴多深沉
  17. tombs/storages—  jinxing close relatives 墓库多克六亲,

When a chart does not have a certain transformation star, it also has similar predictions made above except in different directions.  You may find out the details in my Bazi discussion group. 

Caution:  You need to read the whole chart to ascertain if the above pointers fit the person.  The demeaner, attitude, physical appearance and clothing style could also give hints if this straight deduction based on 10 transformation stars applies or not.   Another precaution is that special chart may not work with the above deductions.  For example,  it is quite common for special profile charts with 3+ of the same stars.  So the above is likely not applicable.

SOLAR VS. LUNAR NEW YEAR
Some people are confused by the Solar New Year and Chinese Lunar New Year.  Solar calendar is based on the relative location of sun to the earth.  Solar New Year day is pretty consistently arriving on around February 4th and sometimes on the 3rd (立春 Spring begins or Li-chun).  Feng Shui, QMDJ, Bazi and many Chinese metaphysics systems are based on the solar calendar.  For 2021 Year of Ox, the Solar New Year will start at 23:01 on February 3.
 
The Chinese Lunar Calendar is based on the relative location of the moon to the earth.  The Lunar New Year day changes every year.  Chinese New Year celebration is based on the lunar calendar.  For 2021 Year of Ox, the Chinese Lunar New Year will start on February 12.
 
RECHARGE AND REBOOT FENG SHUI LUCK
2020 Year of Rat has been a tough year for most earthlings due to the pandemic.  Finally, the long anticipated Year of Ox will arrive at 11:01 pm on February 3, 2021.  Here are something you can do before the new year arrives to enhance your luck
Recharge” means replenishing the qi or energy of your house after a year of operation.  “Reboot” means restarting a new Feng Shui process because you feel your luck is less than satisfactory or even horrible.
Below are methods to recharge or reboot the Feng Shui energies of your house in the last day of the lunar year.

RECHARGE HOUSE FENG SHUI (do these in last day of the lunar year)
1.  Do a house cleaning, remove/ replace or repair broken or damaged items.
2.  Cut or remove dead leaves/ branches of any house plants.  If you want to add new plants, new year eve or new year day is the best time to do it.
3.  Move your Feng Shui animals like ki-lun, calabash, coins-salt water, water fountain and the like to the locations for the Year of Ox (see my previous post on Grand Duke for exact locations).  Do this part on Feb. 3, before 23:01.

REBOOT HOUSE FENG SHUI
Do the #1- 3 in the “Recharge house Feng Shui” section, PLUS:
1.  At the last night of the year, turn on all the lights in the house and let it on until morning.
2.  Find any portable light source (LED lights, light beam and the light) to illuminate/ flash any dark space/ corner in your house, including the underside of your bed, to drive out negative or dark energies.
3.  At mid-night (00:01), turn on any fans, open all windows and doors to force all indoor qi (energy of the Year of Rat) out of the house and draw in new year energy (do NOT do this if your luck is good in 2020).  Close the doors and windows when you feel the air inside your house is fresh.   If you live in a cold region, you can light incenses or sage to fume the house instead. 
4.  If you feel your personal luck was very bad in the Year of Rat, you can cleanse your aura by having another person sweeping sage or incense smoke around your body.  Alternatively, you can light a bonfire and have your own family sit around the fire to cleanse the aura of your whole family.
 
“ROBBING” THE WEALTH ENERGY OF A BANK
Water also symbolizes wealth in Chinese belief and Feng Shui.  On the second day of the Chinese Lunar New Year (Feb. 13, 2021), go to a bank of any financial institution with a small bottle, drink their free coffee/ mineral water (if available) and take a bottle of their water from their water cooler/ water fountain/ water tap home.  Pour this bank water into a bowl with a copper or silver coin in the bottom.  Then put this coin-water bowl in the wealth position of your home (search my blog for “wealth position“) to enhance wealth.  You may do this on Feb. 12 if your local bank close on Saturdays.
 
“Ken, can I still use these methods if I miss the last day of the year?”
 
Yes, wait 360+ days till Feb. 1, 2022 for the Year of Tiger to do it.  But you can still use these methods in any day for cleansing.  The effects are just not as potent as doing it in the last day of the year.

Happy Year of Ox!
 
Ken Lai

Last week we have talked about academic positions based on 8-Mansions and Flying Star Feng Shui.  Now we will discuss academic positions based on the birth year stem of your kids.  This is a more personalized method of locating academic positions which does NOT change with time.

Stems” and “branches” are the “ABC” of Chinese metaphysics.  There are 10 stems and 12 branches.  Most of us probably are familiar with “branches” because it also represents the 12 Chinese zodiac animals.  But in our case here, we look for the stem of the birth year.  Below is a simple method of finding out the birth year stem of your kid and the respective academic position:

For example, if your kid was born in 1991, check the table above for the row with “1”, his birth year is “Xin” and his academic position is in the North.  Please note that birthday before February 4 is counted as previous year.  For instance, someone born in January 22, 1991 is considered born in 1990 based on the Chinese calendar. 

Between the 3 methods of locating academic positions, which one is the best?  According to Feng Shui people, the best would be the one based on the house sitting/facing, followed by Flying Star method and  the personalized one.   

It is not unusual to find your ideal location is occupied by a bathroom or kitchen or simply a missing corner.  You may use the second best location and so on.

Finally, avoid a house with bathroom in southeast sector because it is the academic location based on the Bagua or 8-Trigrams.  This is called “polluting Wen-chang“.  Your kids will have problems in school.  You need to consult a Feng Shui practitioner to correct the problem.

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, most schools teach students through online learning.  Will your kids lose competitive advantages to other better equipped or smarter classmates?  Can you do something to enhance the learning capacity of your kids?

Feng Shui may help because there is an “academic position”  (Wen-chang 文昌)in Feng Shui.  Putting your kid in this position to do their study will enhance his/ her learning capacity and IQ.
There are more than three ways to locate this academic position in your home.  This article shows two first.  The article next week will disclose the third one and which method is more effective.
I.  ACADEMIC POSITION BASED ON HOUSE SITTING/FACING
This method is based on Bazhai or 8-Mansions Feng Shui.  First you need to figure out the “sitting” and “facing” directions of your home.
The main door of your house is the “facing direction“.  The opposite side of your main door is the “sitting” of the house.  Below are the “academic position” (AP for short) of:
  1. Sitting North facing South, the AP is in NE
  2. Sitting South facing North, the AP is in South
  3. Sitting East facing West, the AP is in NW
  4. Sitting West facing East, the AP is in SW
  5. Sitting SE facing NW, the AP is SW
  6. Sitting NW facing SE, the AP is in East
  7. Sitting NE facing SW, the AP is in North
  8. Sitting SW facing NE, the AP is in West
II.  ACADEMIC POSITION BASED ON ANNUAL ACADEMIC STAR
This method is based on the Annual chart of Flying Star Feng Shui.  Find the location of annual 4-green star (best) or 1-water star and put your kid there to study to boost academic performance.  You may find a Flying Star calculator or following the following table to find the 4 and 1 star locations.   Remember these stars change location every year.
Part II of this post will show you a personalized academic position for your kid.  See you next time!

2021 Xin-chou (metal-ox) year will arrive next Feb. 3 at 23:01 pm.  According to the ancient “Mother Earth Classic“, metal-ox year will be a much better year than 2020 metal-rat year.  Metal-ox year will have great harvests and no major natural disasters. But there will be some minor plagues.

Chou-ox clashing wei-ram is wet earth clashing hot earth creating bigger or stronger earth.  In terms of likely illnesses induced due to this clash are digestive and skin related.

How about your Bazi luck?  Here I generically discuss the major chart features that would create fortunes misfortunes for people.

BAZY CHART FEATURES THAT YOU SHOULD WORRY ABOUT IN 2021

People who were born in the year of  Ram (1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015):  This means the year branch is clashed.  This is usually called “clashing Tai Sui or Grand Duke“.

People who were born in 1955 (yi-wei, wood-ram) and 1967 (ding-wei, fire-ram):  This means the year pillar is fan-yin or the whole pillar is clashed from stem to branch. Parents or older relative may suffer.

Chart with yi-wei (wood-ram) or (ding-wei (fire-ram) in the month pillar:  This means the month pillar is fan-yin or the whole month pillar is clashed from stem to branch.  This usually jinxes the parents if chart owner (daymaster or DM) is under 60 years old.  If DM  is 60 or older, it has the possibility becoming the end signal of life because this is regarded as “clashing the dam“.

Chart with yi-wei (wood-ram) or (ding-wei (fire-ram) in the day pillar:  This means the day pillar is fan-yin or the whole day pillar is clashed from stem to branch.   This means DM or DM’s spouse may suffer major mishaps or separation.

Chart with yi-wei (wood-ram) or (ding-wei (fire-ram) in the hour pillar:  This means the hour pillar is fan-yin or the whole month pillar is clashed from stem to branch.   This means DM’s children may suffer some mishaps.  If DM is female, she may suffer some reproductive related illnesses.

Chart already has wei-ram and xu-dog in the branches:  Adding this annual chou-ox will form a dreadful “3-penalties” to the system.  This is usually negative most of the time unless earth is favorable in the chart.  Serious illness or accident are more likely to DM’s close relative or DM.

Chart with hai-pig and zi-rat AND or weak ding/ bing DM (or weak fire element in chart):  The addition of chou-ox forms a strong hai-zi-chou 3-meetings water combination that may extinguish the fire in the system.  This could be major fire-related illness (like heart or blood illness) or even death if this is a fire DM.

Chart with si-snake and you-rooster AND or weak jia/ yi DM (or weak wood element in chart):  The addition of chou-ox forms a strong si-you-chou 3-unities metal combination that may extinguish the wood in the system.  This could be major wood-related illness and accident (like liver/ gallbladder and traffic accident) or even death if this is a wood DM.

GOOD NEWS FOR CERTAIN GROUPS OF PEOPLE?

Chou-ox clashing wei-ram is not always negative.  It all depends on your Bazi chart composition.  Wei is the tomb or storage of wood element.  This fact gives some positive news for the following:

Metal DM (Geng and Xin-metal):  For metal DM, wei-earth is their wealth storage or tomb.  When it is “clashed open” by chou-earth, it could mean unlocking the hidden wealth s/he has.  Male metal DM has an extra bonus– he or suddenly gets married after being single or widowed for ages.  This is due to wealth element also means spouse for male.

Earth DM (Ji and Wu-earth):  For female earth DM, wei-earth is their power storage or tomb.  Power star stands for husband for female.  When it is “clashed open” by chou-earth, it could mean unlocking the hidden husband that she has and suddenly getting married after being single or widowed for ages.

Water DM (Wu and Gui-water):  For female water DM, wei-earth is her output storage or tomb.  Output star stands for children.  If this female DM has problem conceiving, she has better chance of giving birth to a baby this year  this “child storage” is “clashed open” by chou-earth.

Charts with earth being favorable:  (1). When wei-earth clashing chou-earth, it means more earth in the system.  It is positive for chart which likes earth.  But this clash may also clash open “dirty laundries” hidden in chou and wei-earth like illegitimate child or mistress too. (2)  If chart forms chou-xu-wei 3-penalties and earth is favorable, DM may get major promotion or becomes famous overnight.
.
Do not panic if your Bazi chart has the feature listed above because this discussion only looks at the effect of annual luck metal-ox and  does NOT take into consideration of the dynamic of your whole Bazi chart, especially the effect of your current 10-years-luck.   You need to consult a Bazi reader to ascertain if your chart has problems or great news this year.If you want to enhance or fix for the above conditions, consult a Bazi reader or take my courses in:

“Destiny/Luck Mgmt. 2: Basic Bazi Therapy w/18 hr. HD video
“Destiny/Luck Mgmt. 3 w/ Advanced Bazi Therapy w/18 hr. HD video

If money is your problem, the most inexpensive fix would be getting a Grand Duke Talisman from your local Daoist Temple or see my previous post to get one.

Happy New Year!
