THE “LOSERS”– earth is UNFAVORABLE to natal chart 

Wu-earth and xu-earth are both earth elements.  So 2018 wu-xu year is a year with strong earth energy.  If the unfavorable element or “ji-shen” (“annoying god”) of your natal chart is earth,  2018 will be likely “bluer than blue” or not great for you.  Below is what earth luck means for different daymasters (DM).

  1. Earth means peers  (bi-jian/ jie-cai) for Wu-earth and Ji-earth DM– losing wealth, suffering backstabbing or being implicated to legal problems due to friends, siblings, partners, colleagues; health problems; also jinxing wife and father.
  2. Earth means output/ talent  (shang-guan/ shi-shen) for Bing-fire and ding-fire DM– illness, injury, problem with authority figures or legal problems for these DM.
  3. Earth means wealth (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) for Jia-wood and Yi-wood DM– with extra strong earth this year,  wood DMs may lose major wealth due to illness, being scammed or bad investment.  They also likely suffer illness and work problem.  Their father may get sick.  Men likely have marital problems or affairs.
  4. Earth means power  (zheng-guan/ qi-sha) for Ren-water and Gui-water DM– bad career luck, lawsuit, tainted reputation, injuries and sickness and problems with authority figures for these people.  For females, this could also mean bad romance.
  5. Earth means resource (zheng-yin/ pian-yin) for Geng-metal and Xin-metal DM– tainting reputation, work/contract/ housing problems and sickness.

Charts with chen-xu clash may more negative because earth clashing earth resulting in more unfavorable earth!  This could mean illness or accident.

For the same reason, charts with chou-xu-wei 3-penalties will be more negative.  It could be major illness (involving digestive system or kidney), accident or even death.

As usual, you need to look at the whole natal chart with luck periods to see the “whole picture” and not just look at the earth factor alone.  Hopefully you have one of those “Telfon charts” that never sticks with bad luck elements because somehow other elements in the chart or luck period will always turn the negative element into neutral or even positive.  For example, if your chart has gui-water combining wu-earth into fire and wu-fire also turning (combining) xu-earth into fire—  suddenly your chart has more fire and not the bad earth!

If unfortunately you are in this “losers” group, you may consult a Bazi reader and Feng Shui teacher for advice to mitigate the negative effect of earth.  Or you can take my courses below (click for details):

winnersWu-xu or year of earth-dog will arrive in less than 2 weeks.  People may be interested in finding out if this dog year is good or bad for them.  This article briefly explains who will be “winners” or “losers” in this dog year in terms of their Bazi natal chart.  Read the appendix of following link if you want to find out your natal chart info:

http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/2016/10/10-birthdays-that-attract-helpful.html

THE “WINNERS”earth is favorable to natal chart 

Wu-earth and xu-earth are both earth elements.  So 2018 wu-xu year is a year with strong earth energy.  If the favorable element or “yong-shen” of your natal chart is earth,  2018 will be likely “rock and roll” or great for you.  Below is what earth luck means for different daymasters (DM).

  1. Earth means peers  (bi-jian/ jie-cai) for Wu-earth and Ji-earth DM– helpful friends, siblings, colleagues and wealth luck for these people.
  2. Earth means output/ talent (shang-guan/ shi-shen) for Bing-fire and ding-fire DM– good creativity/ performance/investment luck and help from junior generation for these people.
  3. Earth means wealth (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) for Jia-wood and Yi-wood DM– with extra strong earth this year,  very good wealth luck for these people.  For men, this could also mean good romance luck too.
  4. Earth means power  (zheng-guan/ qi-sha) for Ren-water and Gui-water DM– good career luck for these people.  For females, this could also mean meeting Mr. Right.
  5. Earth means resource (zheng-yin/ pian-yin) for Geng-metal and Xin-metal DM– good mentor/study luck, fame and help from older generation for these people.

Charts with chen-xu clash may not be too negative because earth is favorable.  But dirty laundry like hidden affair or illegitimate child may be exposed in open.

For the same reason, charts with chou-xu-wei 3-penalties may not be negative.  It may be even positive like sudden fame or fortune showing up.

As usual, you need to look at the whole natal chart with luck periods to see the “whole picture” and not just look at the earth factor alone.  For example, if your chart has gui-water combining wu-earth into fire and wu-fire also turning (combining) xu-earth into fire—  suddenly your chart has more fire and not the good earth!

If unfortunately you are not in the “winners” group, you can read what may happen to the “losers” and what you can do in next blog.

garageParking with no roof is just “parking space”.  Garage is defined as car parking space with “protection” or at least 3 sides protected except the exit.

Cars usually create movements when running in and out of a garage everyday.  Therefore, it affects the well-being of residents significantly because it is movement that “activates” good or bad energies.

Followings are different approaches to garage Feng Shui:

1. Garage Feng Shui based on 5-elements

Garage is metal element in nature.  Therefore, the best locations for garage are:  west, northwest, northeast and southwest.  Worst location is the south because it is fire in nature.

2. Garage Feng Shui based on Flying Stars

Garage should be put in 1-white-water, 6-white-earth, 7-red-metal or 8-white-earth star locations.  It should not be put in 2-black-earth, 5-yellow-earth or 9-purple-fire locations.  Specifically, garage should not be located in regions with the following flying star combinations: 1-5, 2-5 (the worst!), 2-3, 3-5, 9-9, 7-9, 5-7 and 4-5.  Garage located in locations with these star combinations are prone to car accidents, bloody events and even deaths. 

3. Garage Feng Shui based on house and garage sitting/facing

House and garage sitting and facing should avoid the following mountains: gui/ ren, gui/ chou, yin/ jia, jia/ yin, yi/ chen, chen/ yi, si/ bing, bing/ si, ding/ wei, wei/ ding, shen/ geng, geng/ shen, xin/ xu and xu/ xin.  Mountain” is based on Feng Shui’s 24 mountains or directions (Google search for diagrams or see the one in previous blog on Minimalist Feng Shui).  You can figure out the rationale behind these mountain locations if you understand 5-elements theory and Bazi.

Master-bedroom or the office of owner/ manager should not be on top of a garage.  It is not good for health and wealth.

This is a “green” article recycled from last year with updates.  If you are darn lazy, simply read the following picture and go back to your sweet dream.

No digging/ movements in regions with blue arrows:

  • Region between 142.5- 217.5 degrees  (San Sha and 5-yellow locations)
  • 247.5- 292.5 degrees (2-black star)– use metal cure
  • 292.5- 307.5 degrees (Grand Duke)
  • 112.5- 127.5 degrees (Sui-Po or year-breaker)

Minimalist Feng Shui”  here fixes only 2-5, 5-5, and 9-5 star combinations in regions with activities.  You don’t need to put up remedies or Feng Shui monsters in all 9-palaces of your house, especially in region with no activity like storage room or guest room.

This year Sui-po (year-breaker) is in the 8-wealth star region.  Be very careful with the location where you put your water-fountain or other wealth-enhancement monsters.

You should do a good date-selection if you need to do construction in any of the above locations with blue arrow (mountains/ palace).  San-sha and 5-Yellow star share the same location this year.  Make sure you do not provoke their “anger” by digging and movements there.

People with dragon and dog zodiac signs should avoid seeing corpse being put into a coffin or burial for this year if they don’t want bad luck and sickness.

Yang nobleman sign for this year is Chou (ox).  Yin nobleman is Wei (ram).

2018 Wu-xu Feng Shui year will start on February 4 @ 5:30 am.  Remember to move your Feng Shui monsters/ remedies before that time.  Do a house-cleaning/ cleansing on Feb. 3 if you have suffered misfortunes during 2017 ding-you year.

Last year, I have written about “meaning of no wealth element in natal chart“.  This time we explore the opposite:  chart with too many wealth elements.  

MEANING OF TOO MANY WEALTH ELEMENTS IN NATAL CHART

Daymaster (DM) is “bossed” around by wife; prone to sickness and injuries.

  1. DM is prone to disasters, gossips and legal problems related to wealth and women
  2. DM has little or no culture or study luck, is likely less educated.
  3. DM has few or no leadership skills.  Subordinates are likely not heeding his commands.
  4. DM is likely making money through physical labor or making “risky money“.
  5. DM is likely greedy, stingy, doing anything for money, “money first”
  6. DM “prefers money over righteousness“, materialistic,  “loves ease and comfort and hates work” type
  7. DM jinxes mother; mother likely suffers chronic illness or disasters with premature death

As usual, there are exceptions to the above, like if wealth element is favorable or unfavorable and DM is strong or weak.  You need to look at other elements of the chart to make predictions.

This post is based on 2017 “Grand Duke Talisman charity drive” with updates for 2018.

If you have read my old message about functions of Grand Duke, you know that there are two Grand Dukes watching over your shoulder, counting the good and bad deeds that you have done and executing rewards and misfortunes accordingly. This is a major rationale that donation to get your Grand Duke talisman.  When your talisman is grounded with a charitable deed, GD is less likely to execute any misfortunes due from your karma account. Another rationale for donation is the exchange of energy– using a charitable deed in exchange of protection energy from Grand Duke.

Like last year, I have added the topic for house violating Grand Duke, the cure is either avoiding activities/ earth-digging or using the Grand Duke talisman in the Grand Duke location.

2018 GRAND DUKE GENERAL JIANG WU   姜武大將軍

2018gd2018 is Wu-xu or year of earth-dog. Grand Duke for the year is General Jiang Wu who was a military officer in 16th century Ming DynastyJiang had passed his Imperial military officer exam in 1622 and became an officer renowned for neutralizing banditry.  In 1642, he was ordered to rescue the embattled and besieged national army in Kaifeng City of Henan Province.  General Jiang had refused to retreat when cohort armies were defeated and escaped.  He had kept on fighting and terminating many bandit soldiers until he himself was killed.  He was awarded “róng lù dà fū” (榮祿大夫, similar to western knighthood) posthumously which was inheritable by his descendants.

2018年狗年,年干支“戊戌”,太歲為姜武大將軍,。在明代時降生在保德州(今山東省保德縣一帶),天啟二年(1622年)科舉中武舉人,被授予大同威遠守備(今山西省大同市)的官職;崇禎(1628-1643年)初年,升遷為大水峪游擊,建造了杏山城,又遷為宣府西城參將,捕殺了大盜王科,又調守宣府右衛,擢升為通州(今北京市通縣一帶)副總兵,守護皇室諸陵墓;十五年(1642年),跟隨保定總督楊文岳援救開封守軍。當時隨行其他營的軍隊都潰敗而逃散了,唯有姜武的軍隊,堅定防守,毫不動搖。清晨,賊軍蜂擁殺來,姜武親自率軍血戰,殺賊軍達數百人。由于力量耗盡,姜武在怒斥賊軍無義中英勇犧牲。后被贈進榮祿大夫,右都督蔭外衛,世襲總旗。

2018  GRAND DUKE TALISMAN FOR BAZI CLASHES

Wu-xu or year of earth-dog can be challenging for people with Jia-chen and/or Ren-chen pillar in their Bazi charts because these pillars “fan-yin” or “battle” with both the stem and branch of 2018 Grand Duke. It is especially serious if your day-pillar is Jia-chen or Ren-chen because it means something may happen to you or your spouse.

5 out of 12 animal signs have “violated” Grand Duke because dog sign forms 3-penalities with ram and ox.  Dog also clashes dragon and “prosecutes” rooster.

In addition, besides the year branch, if any branch in your Bazi chart has a chen-dragon, that branch is also clashing Grand Duke.  The effect may be seen from the people and events represented by that branch location.  For example, if you have a chen month branch clash, the effect may happen to daymasters’ parent or sibling.

In general, “clashing Grand Duke” is the most serious violation.   This means people with dragon animal sign should be more cautious this year.

If fortunately or unfortunately, you chart somehow has a xu-chou-wei (dog-ox-ram) 3-penalties, the outcome could be positive or disastrous depending if earth element is favorable or unfavorable to your chart.

Here are the five groups of people who need Grand Duke Talismans:

 2.  “Fan-yin” or “clashing” the animal sign of Grand Duke 冲太岁– people with dragon sign

GRAND DUKE TALISMAN FOR FENG SHUI REMEDY 

1.  House violating Grand Duke

7b427-000gd_location

Click pix to enlarge

In 2018 wu-xu year, if your house faces xu-dog mountain or NW1 (292.5 to 307.5 degree, ) direction, your house is said to be “violating Grand Duke.”  House violating GD will affect the overall luck, health and well-being of the people living inside.  The remedy is either avoiding movements, construction, earth-digging and demolition there or put up a Grand Duke talisman facing NW1 direction.  The opposite side of Grand Duke is Year-breaker (Sui-po, SE1).  This location should avoid digging and activities too.

Even with the GD talisman, if you need to do construction, you still need to do a date-selection for an auspicious date and start digging on a non-GD direction and finish last on the GD direction.

2.  Desk violating Grand Duke

If your desk or wherever you sit for an extended time faces Xu-dog mountain or NW1 direction, you can put up a Grand Duke talisman there for protection.  It is not auspicious to face the Grand Duke direction.  It weakens your competition power in business/career and examinations. However, if you arrange your seat so that NW1 will be at your back (and put a Grand Duke talisman there), you will get Grand Duke as support and is good for competition and business. 

3.  Moving direction violating Grand Duke

If you move to a new house or residence, the relative direction from your old house to the new house is facing NW1 grand Duke direction, you are considered “violating GD“.  Remedy will be choosing an auspicious date to move or at the least, choose a different route of traveling, like driving to a different direction in the beginning, take a break for 15 minutes or more and then to the final destination.  This will convert the original GD direction to a non-GD direction. You may carry a GD talisman too. 

4.  Marriage direction violating Grand Duke

If you get married and the relative direction of your new marital residence to the old residence is facing NW1 grand Duke direction,  you are considered “violating GD”.  Remedy will be choosing an auspicious date to move or at the least, choose a different route of traveling, like driving to a different direction in the beginning, take a break for 15 minutes or more and then to the final destination.  This will convert the original GD direction to a non-GD direction.  You may carry a GD talisman too. 

GRAND DUKE TALISMAN OFFERS

This year we use digital delivery of Grand Duke Talismans because “snail mail” is slow and prone to losses.  Ken Lai will create a GD Talisman with user name, city and country imprinted, bless and “activate” individually on screen digitally.  This unique activated GD file will be emailed to you.  You can print as many copies as you want (but for one unique-named person only).  In this way, you can replace soiled or damaged talismans.  You can carry one talisman in your wallet and post one in your home and/or office for Feng Shui remedy.  You get more “mileage” from a single donation this way.

The offer is the same as previous years: your charity donation of US$30 or more to any legitimate local or international charity will get you a specially blessed Grand Duke talisman with your name inscribed (see below for special rate for countries with lower annual income per capita).    Here are some sample charities suggested in the past drives:

  • homeless shelter
  • Save-the-Children (www.savethechildren.org)
  • UNICEF (United Nation Children’s Fund)
  • Smile Train (www.smiletrain.org)
  • children hospital
  • food shelves/soup kitchen
  • Red Cross
  • animal shelter/ humane society
  • Doctors without border (https://donate.doctorswithoutborders.org/onetime.cfm)

Donation made to help alleviate an urgent human/ animal need or suffering (e.g., feeding the hungry, tornado/ typhoon victims or homeless) gets you more karma credits than donation for public good or improvement of public life like church/ temple or public radio/TV.

If you are worried about privacy issues and future solicitations– please be assured that I will not email you in the future. You will send me NO money. You send your money directly to your favorite local or international charity.  You do NOT need to purchase any additional item from me or anyone else. No future solicitation of any type will be sent to you.  This offer is for people who have no access to Daoist temples.  Please support your local temple if you have access to one.

If you need more than one Grand Duke Talismans, here is the discount schedule:
–one talisman US$30 donation (US$5 if you are unemployed/under-employed)
 –two talismans US$50 donation ($10 if unemployed /under-employed )
 –three talismans US$60 donation ($15 if unemployed /under-employed )
(you may go to http://www.xe.com to calculate the equivalent of US$30 to your local currency)

NOTE:  People from countries with annual personal income per capita income below US$8000.00 can use the “under-employed and unemployed rate“.

Talisman that is grounded with a charitable event works more effectively because it has an exchange of one type of energy for protection energy.

To claim your talismans and application instructions, please forward your donation receipt with the talisman recipient names and address to kenlai88@yahoo.com with the following info:

  1. user name:
  2. gender (sex): 
  3. city:
