8babiesA woman in California has given birth to octuplets in the first day of the Chinese New Year:

How do you read the 4P of octuplets? Will all the babies have the samefortune and luck?
 
No 4P classic has mentioned even how to handle triplets. There are simpleways to handle twins 4P. But 8…?
Anyway, I ran the 4P charts of the octuplets. You may notice the year branch is still zi or mouse. The solar new year will arrive at Feb. 4th as usual. Quality of the charts are on the borderline of below average. The kids may jinx the parents, especially the father. Their luck is below average in their middle ages. Girls’ teen luck is better than the boys.==

ACTUAL 4P CHART OF THE OCTUPLETS
YEAR: wu-zi (earth-water)
MONTH: yi-chou (wood-earth)
DAY: xin-wei (metal-earth)
HOUR: gui-si (water-fire)
======
If their mother had consulted a 4P reader and pushed the delivery time by 9 hours (xu instead of si hour), the luck will be much much better for her kids.
======
4P CHART IF BIRTHS WERE DELAYED 9 HOURS (XU HOUR)
YEAR: wu-zi (earth-water)
MONTH: yi-chou (wood-earth)
DAY: xin-wei (metal-earth)
HOUR: WU-XU (earth-earth)
======
What if the hospital cannot mobilize 46 workers after 7pm (xu hour)? No problem– if the mother can delay the births by 3 days to Jan. 29 at the same si hour, the kids’ luck will also be much better and no jinx to parents.
======
4P CHART IF BIRTHS WERE DELAYED 3 DAYS (JAN. 29)
YEAR: wu-zi (earth-water)
MONTH: yi-chou (wood-earth)
DAY: JIA-XU (wood-earth)
HOUR: gui-si (water-fire)
It’s fate– that could possibly be changed if the mother has some 4-pillars knowledge.

Hi Pals,

Chinese New Year will come eariler this year on Jan. 26th. If the Mouse Year is not good or really “suck” for you, you may want to do some house-cleaning on the 25th.

Besides cleaning away the clutter and garbage, you may want to open all the windows, cupboards and drawers, to let the old-qi or energy go away. Turn on your fan to blow the old or stagnant qi out of your house for about half an hour. You may want to burn some incense or spray your house with lavender scent after the cleaning.

BUT, if the year is great for you, do NOT blow the qi away! You want to keep the good qi for an extended ride.

This cleansing trick can be easily adapted to do a major Feng Shui magic…. Students who have taken my Feng Shui class should figure that out. Many metaphysics techniques use similar principles.2oxen

I have started my house-cleaning with my website first. Now it is “cleaner” with many new pictures and some new contents. If you want to check it out, here is the link:

Say “Hi” to my lucky ox and …… The picture at the home page has a little riddle there (Hint: think about bagua and 24 mountains).

According to the Chinese custom, do NOT do any house-cleaning on the New Year Day, so the good fortune will not be “swept” away.

2009gd
Year of Ox is approaching and there will be a new Grand Duke taking over the year.

Grand Duke (GD) is a Daoist creation about an annual deity who controls the human affairs for the year (similar to the annual luck concept in 4P). There are 60 binomials (jia-zi) in the 60-years cycle of the Chinese calendar, so there are 60 distinct GDs taking turns to “rule” the human world.

These GDs are Chinese historical figures who were righteous, pious and loyal to their country. Most are from the Ming Dynasty (around 1600’s), so we know the personification of GD started around that time.

There are many ways to “violate” GD,depending on one’s Chinese zodiac animal sign. These ways are based on the rules governing the interactions between the earthly branches or animals signs– the same rules used in 4-Pillars of Destiny.

Here are some comparisons:
* 4P: “Fu-yin”– when the branches from two pillars are the same; can be positive or negative (depending on the elemental nature of the fu-yin)
* GD: “Zhi GD”– when the animal sign of the year is same as yours; normally means obstacles or obstructions in life.
* WHO ARE “ZHI GD” FOR THE YEAR OF OX?
People who were born in 1913,1925,1937,1949,1961,1973,1985,1997

* 4P: “Fan-yin”– when the branches from two pillars are the antagonistic to each other, e.g. chou vs wei (ox vs. ram); normally negative
* GD: “clash GD”– same as above, when your animal sign is antagonistic to GD’s; normally means bad luck, sickness or accidents. This is the most severe GD violation.
* WHO ARE “CLASHING GD” FOR THE YEAR OF OX?
People who were born in 1919,1931,1943,1955,1967,1979,1991,2003

* 4P: “Penalty”– when the branches from two pillars are from one of the 3-penalities combinations, e.g. mouse and rabbit, ox and dog, ram and dog, tiger and snake, snake and monkey, etc; normally negative and affecting close relatives of the person involved
* GD: “Penalize GD”– same as above, when your animal sign “penalizes” GD’s; normally means accidents, legal problems and injuries.
* WHO ARE “PENALIZING GD” FOR THE YEAR OF OX?
People who were born in 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006

* 4P: Break or “Po”– when the branches from two pillars are from one of the following combinations: mouse/rooster, tiger/pig, dragon/ox, snake/monkey, horse/rabbit, ram/dog; “Po” stands for damage and breaking away; this is relative minor event
* GD: “Po GD”– same as above animal sign combinations; relatively minor offense
* WHO ARE “PO GD” FOR THE YEAR OF OX?
People who were born in 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000

* 4P: Harm or “Hai”– when a branch stops the combination parnter of another branch; e.g.: wei (ram) “harms” zi (mouse combines with ox); “harm” stands for disharmony and hurting. It’s effects are not significant
* GD: “Hai GD”– same as above; relatively minor offense
* WHO ARE “HAI GD” FOR THE YEAR OF OX?
People who were born in 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002

In Feng Shui, if GD is at the facing of your house or office, it will mean difficulty or problems for the year. You should NOT do construction on GD’s direction either UNLESS you take the appropriate precautions and rituals. For year of Ox, Chou mountain is at NE-N (around 22.5 to 37.5 degree).

You can sit with GD at your back, but not in front of you. Supposely in a war, the side with GD at their back will likely win.

There are rituals for “appeasing” GD which are popular in Hong Kong and China.

There are also 4P fixes for clashing GD. For example, you may carry a Mickey Mouse figure or a rooster to combine away the GD Chou.

There are also secret Daoist rituals that make GD your good friend and help you in business and health matters and overcome danger. But that can be another course in itself!
