Though the Chinese Lunar New Year will be on Feb. 14 of this year, the Year of Tiger officially starts at Spring Solstice (Li-chun) or Feb. 4.

According to Chinese custom, a new ruler of the year, or Grand Duke (Tai-sui) will come for each year.  For 2010 or Geng-yin (metal-tiger) year, the Grand Duke is General Wu Huan.  Pleases see his picture on the talisman image enclosed here.

For 2010, Grand Duke sits on Northeast, specifically, the Yin mountain (NE3).  If your house faces NE3, it is considered “clashing Grand Duke“.  The residents may face accidents, obstacles or losing wealth.  The cure is minimizing movements in the facing and put a Grand Duke talisman (see sample here) facing NE3.

On the other hand, if your house sits on Yin mountain, it is considered having the support of Grand Duke.  The tenants will do better in business ventures and competition.  Historically speaking, countries at war with Grand Duke at their back are likely to win.

In terms of individuals, people who have something to do with current year’s Grand Duke are generally considered “violating Grand Duke“.  But in reality this “violation” can be distinguished in 3 ways:

1.  People who have the same animal sign as the Grand Duke are considered “on duty” or “zhi 植” with Grand Duke. For 2010 , people who were born in Tiger years (1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998) are “on duty” with Grand Duke. The symptoms will be minor sickness, emotionally inbalanced and minor misfortunes.

2.  People who animal sign that clashes the Grand Duke are “chong” or clash Grand Duke.  For 2010, people with monkey animal sign (born 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992) are clashing Grand Duke for the year.  This is the most serious Grand Duke violation that may cause:
— career changes (promotion or demotion)
— moving
— frequent travels
— major monetary losses or bankruptcy
— death in the family
— major sickness/ surgery
— accident or death

3.  People who have animal sign that “penalizes” Grand Duke.  For 2010, people who have snake (si) animal sign (born 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1972, 1984, 1996) penalize Grand Duke.  Penalizing is less severe than clashing Grand Duke.  The symptoms are: bickering, backstabbing, legal problems and lawsuits.

One way to cure this Grand Duke violation is to carry the Grand Duke talisman shown here.  However, a mere reproduction of this talisman does not have the divine energy to fix the problem.  A talisman needs to be “activated” or “benedicted” by a Daoist teacher or priest to be effective.  A benediction easily costs US$60.

Here is the special offer– for a donation of US$30 to the charitable organization listed below (or any of your local charity pre-approved by me), I will send you an indiviudal benedicted Grand Duke Talisman.  You simply forward me the email acknowledgment of your donation (or scanned image of the donation receipt).  No money will go through me. You send the donation DIRECTLY to the charity.  I will pay the postage for sending the talisman to you.

The followings are some suggested charities:
UNICEF for Haiti children
“Save the Children” for Haiti children
American Red Cross (you may donate to your local Red Cross)
