December 2018


Today is your lucky day to see the last batch of top secrets of the year. 

Below are some secret Bazi laws that masters use to do quick reading:

八字定律

命局财多愚,才多劳,官多贱,杀多死,印多孤,枭多凶,食多愁,伤多害,刃多残,劫多败,禄多贫,马多奔走,冲多不安,合多热心,阳多坦荡,阴多深重,墓库多克六亲,无财不真实,无官少压力,无印少福分。

Chart with numerous (3+)

  1. +wealth (zheng-cai):  Daymaster (DM) is likely stupid
  2. -wealth (pian-cai):  DM likely works too much
  3. +power (zheng-guan):  DM is likely a lower class member/ depressed 
  4. -power (qi-sha):  DM is likely to die prematurely
  5. +resource (zheng-yin):  DM is likely alone/ solitary
  6. -resource (pian-yin):  DM is likely a vicious person
  7. +output (shang-guan):  DM is likely a disaster/ arrogant
  8. -output (shi-shen):  DM worries too much/ likes eating
  9. +peer (bi-jian):  DM is likely a failure/ fantasizes too much
  10. Yang-knives (+peer):  DM likely has disability
  11. Lu (-peer):  DM likely lives in poverty
  12. Traveling Horses (yin/shen/si/hai):  DM travels a lot/ mobile, can’t sit still
  13. clashes:  instability and insecurity for DM
  14. combinations:  DM is enthusiastic and sociable
  15. more yang than yin pillars:  DM is open and honest
  16. more yin than yang pillars:  DM is not open and suspicious of others
  17. tomb-storages (chen/xu/chou/wei): DM is likely jinxing close relatives

Chart with NO:

  • wealth star:  DM is “not real” (everyone needs wealth to survive)
  • power star:  DM has less pressure
  • resource star:  DM has shortage of blessing

Of course, you also need to read other parts of a chart before you giving out comments based on above laws.  There are always exceptions such as special profile charts which may give totally opposite meanings.

As you can see, a tiny paragraph written in  Chinese takes almost one page to translate in brief.  It would have taken another 2 pages if I explain what these mean in details.    

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have created a multi-years table for checking Grand Duke violations by birth year that you may use even after I had gone to see Buddha and Jesus.  You may plan ahead with this table.  

We still use the year 2011 old price for Grand Duke Talismans donation for this year.  But you may donate more to your favorable charity if you wish. 

This year we start the drive early, so you may take advantage of your usual Christmas or new year donations to get a GD talisman (and income tax deduction, if any).

For details on Grand Duke violations, you may read this posts:

http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/2018/01/2018-grand-duke-talisman-charity-drive.html

To check if you have Grand Duke violation, check the highlighted last row (“Pig“) and check next section if you do not know your animal sign.

The animal sign with violations are pig, snake and monkey.  House facing NW3 or hai mountain may need some remedies.

GRAND DUKE TALISMAN FOR FENG SHUI REMEDY

House violating Grand Duke

Click to enlarge

In 2019 ji-hai year, if your house faces hai-pig mountain or NW3 (322.5 to 337.5 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 NW3 direction.  The opposite side of Grand Duke is Year-breaker (Sui-po, SE1).  This location should avoid digging and activities too. 

For details on house Grand Duke violations, check this post:

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 yourself.  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 “pain” or “misfortune” removed from you 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): 
2.  city:
3.  country:

Get your Grand Duke Talismans before Feb. 3, 2019 if possible.  Year of Pig will start on Feb. 4, 2018 (11:16 am).  Your individually consecrated digital talisman will be emailed to you  or in about 1 week (after January 1, 2019) after receiving your proof of donation.

Thank you for participating in this charity drive.

Your Bazi natal chart can reveal a lot about you–  your spouse, your wealth luck, your parents,  your family background, if you are an angel or an ass, and even if you will jinx your children or not  (time to take a Bazi course!)

People with the following Bazi characteristics in their natal Bazi chart may jinx their children:

1.  “Children palace” location is occupation by unfavorable elements (ji-shen).  Hour pillar is the children palace location.  This means children is not good for the daymaster (DM) or they are just “average” and not doing too well.

2.  Children palace is seriously clashed or penalized.  This means children has little or no relationship (karma) with DM. live far away from DM or die prematurely.

3.  Children palace sits on void branch.  “Void” means nothing.  DM may not have any children or children has little or no relationship (karma) with DM or DM cannot rely on them for old age support.

4.  Children palace is occupied by output stars (shi-shen/ shang-guan) for male DM.  Power stars (zheng-guan/ qi-sha) mean children for male.  The arch enemies of power stars are output stars.  Hence when children palace is occupied by output stars implies jinxing children for a male DM– children do not like staying at home or have poor prospect or simply being “average“.

5.  Children palace is occupied by resource stars (zheng-yin/ pian-yin) for female DM.  Output stars (shi-shen/ shang-guan) mean children for female.  The arch enemies of output stars are resource stars.  Hence when children palace is occupied by resource stars implies jinxing children for a female DM– children do not like staying at home or have poor prospect or simply being “average“.

If you are smart, the same analytical technique can be applied to other pillars to examine other family relationship, like month pillar for parents or sibling relationship.  This is equivalent to reading 1 article and get 3 free.  Life is good for you.

In Chinese astrology, everyone is assigned an animal sign from a pool of 12 animals based on the birth year.  This article discloses a rarely taught secret of “12 worrisome birth months“.

People who were born in their “worrisome month” of their own specific birth animal sign likely to have the following characteristics:

Personality:  worrisome, gloomy, grumpy, down, pessimistic and feel disaster coming anytime, self-defeatist, “shooting oneself in the foot” type.

Life chances and social interactions:  not getting along with neighbors and family relatives, loner and quiet type, lacking friends, marital problems and career problems.

HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR WORRISOME MONTH

Worrisome month is calculate in terms of solar months (it is about a month slower than western month).  The easiest way to calculate it is to use the bazi-calculator link below, key in your birthday and check the left side table as shown below:

https://bazi-calculator.com/

The example below is to check someone with December 4, 1980 birthday was born in his worrisome month or not.  The birth animal sign is monkey for the person and birth month is pig or hai.

Then we check the list of worrisome month in terms of birth animal sign below.  The worrisome month for monkey sign is pig or hai month.  Hence this person was born in a worrisome month  (potential client for psychologist). 

The followings are worrisome months based on Chinese zodiac animal signs: 

RAT (years born: 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, 2032, 2044) 

–Worrisome month:  rabbit or mao (second solar month)

OX (years born: 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973,  1985, 1997, 2009, 2021, 2033, 2045) 

–Worrisome month:  dragon or chen  (third solar month)

TIGER (years born: 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022,  2034 )

 –Worrisome month:  pig or hai (10th solar month)

RABBIT (years born: 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023,  2035 ) )

–Worrisome month:  horse or wu (fifth solar month)

DRAGON (years born: 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976,  1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2036) 

–Worrisome month:  ox or chou (twelfth solar month)

SNAKE (years born: 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013,  2025, 2037)

–Worrisome month:  tiger or yin month  (first solar month)

HORSE (years born: 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026, 2038, 2050)

–Worrisome month:  rooster or you month  (eighth solar month)

RAM (years born: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027, 2039 )

–Worrisome month:  dog or xu month (ninth solar month)

MONKEY (years born: 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016,  2028, 2040)

–Worrisome month:  snake or si month (fourth solar month)

ROOSTER (years born: 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981,  1993, 2005, 2017, 2029, 2041)  

–Worrisome month:  rat or  zi month (eleventh solar month)

DOG (years born: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970,  1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030, 2042)

–Worrisome month:  ram or wei month  (sixth solar month)

PIG  (years born: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1994, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043 )

–Worrisome month:  monkey or shen month  (seventh solar month)

“Ken, can you explain the rationale behind these worrisome months?”

This will take 12 letter-sized pages to explain.  Most of you will have no patience to read and me no time to write.  For the intellectually curious– this has something to do with the interactions between the hidden elements inside the animal signs and the “12 life stages of stem” theory.

Now psychologists have one more tool to diagnose depression– to check if the patient was born in a worrisome month.

Have you ever attended some inexpensive live seminars for “Annual Feng Shui/ luck Predictions” and ended up purchasing a few thousand U.S. dollars’ worth of Feng Shui remedies like white pagoda, Jurassic animals and/ or courses?

Do you want to do these seminars yourself and get-rich-quick like those “masters“?

Today is your ultra lucky day if your answer is “yes”.  This article discloses the little not-so-dirty secret of how to make annual predictions. 

ANNUAL CHARTS

In Li-qi or formula Feng Shui systems like Purple White, Flying Star, QMDJ and the likes use an “nnual chart” to calculate the change of energy or qi distributions of 8 major directions.

This annual distribution of energies is determined by the star “flying” (or “rotation” of 9 different stars) into the center palace.  The movement of these 9 stars follows the Lao-shu pattern.  Hence, once we know the center star of each year, we can draw out the annual chart of that year and make your own “annual predictions” easily using the nature of 9-stars and your own imaginations.

Click table to enlarge

There are only 9 flying stars and hence 9 possible annual charts.  This means after you have done 9 annual predictions, you can claim to be an environment conscious person by recycling the old charts, predictions and cut down your workload. Hopefully your past attendees have forgotten that they already have paid for the same info once or more (Disclosure:  This is how I do my annual “minimal Feng Shui guide”.  Sorry, no return or refund for your “clicks”).

There are a few methods to calculate the center star based on different centuries.  Below is one simple method.

  • Year 1900 to 1999:  Use 10 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year. For example, Year 1989= 8+ 9= 17; 1+7=8  (reduce the total to a single digit number); center star for 1989= 10 – 8 =2
  • Year 2000 to 2099:  Use 9 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year. For example, Year 2019= 1+ 9= 10; 1+0=1  (reduce the total to a single digit number); center star for 2019= 9 – 1 = 8
  • Year 2100 to 2199:  Use 8 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 2200 to 2299:  Use 7 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.

How about the center stars of previous centuries?

  • Year 1800 to 1899:  Use 11 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 1700 to 1799:  Use 12 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 1600 to 1699:  Use 13 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 1500 to 1599:  Use 14 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 1400 to 1499:  Use 15 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 1300 to 1399:  Use 16 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 1200 to 1299:  Use 17 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year.
  • Year 1100 to 1199:  Use 11 to subtract the total from the last 2 digits of the year. 

“Ken,  we were not born before year 1100 and most of us will not live through 2100, why bother giving us so many centuries of calculations?”

The ones for year 1100 to 2000 are for you to do historical Feng Shui audit/ detective work.  For example, you want to check a major historical fire of 1777 of an ancient palace was related to Feng Shui or not.  With its sitting and facing direction, you can generate its Feng Shui charts and tie to the annual chart of 1777 when the fire had happened.   Year 2000 to 2299 data is to protect our descendants for generations to come from “annual prediction” marketing because they can DIY.
