Bad Feng Shui for the man of the house

House Feng Shui affects the career and health of the residents, especially for the breadwinner/s of the house.  The Feng Shui conditions below will affect the "man of the house":

1.  Missing northwest corner  
-- Northwest (NW) represents the oldest male in the house.  If NW sector is missing in a house, it will affect the oldest male's career and health.  Usually this male also suffers low self-esteem or does not want to stay home.

2.  Missing corner in NW-- occupied by elevator
-- In this scenario, NW is not really missing but is not part of the house or apartment.  NW sector is occupied by an elevator. Elevator moves up and down all day long in NW will affect the male of the house seriously.  This man may have chronic illness. If annual star 5-disaster and 2-sickness lands on NW, elevator movement will activate the negativity affecting this man of the house.

3.  Toilet or bathroom in NW sector
-- Toilet has dirty water and water-flushing frequently.  It will affect the man of the house in terms of his career and wealth luck.  He may lose his official position if working for the government and filing bankruptcy if running a business.  If this is a single woman house, she will have problem getting a stable boy friend or husband.

4.  Kitchen in NW sector
-- NW is metal in nature and kitchen is fire.  Kitchen in NW may cause respiratory and brain illness to the residents, especially the oldest male of the house.  This situation is also called "Fire burning heaven's gate".  It stands for rebellious children who bully the father.

"Ken, is there any remedy for these NW Feng Shui problems?" 

There are limited remedies.  Consult your Feng Shui teacher or take this course:

Lucky car license numbers

In North America, if you visit cities with large concentration of Chinese like Los Angels, San Francisco, Toronto or Vancouver,  you can easily spot luxury cars with license plates full with the numbers 3, 8, and 9.  99% of the time, you can guess the car owners are Chinese.

Chinese people are superstitious about these numbers because they sound auspicious to them.  The number "3" sounds like "growing or growth" and "alive or live".  The number "8" sounds like "prosperity or making big money".  Number "9" sounds like "forever or long-lasting".

License plate with special combinations of these numbers, like "989898"  ("making big money forever"), "383838" ("growing big money") or simply "888888" ("making big money") and the likes are routinely auction off by the governments in Hong Kong and China for big money.

V99999 was auctioned for RMB$ 3.2M
Recently in a city in Guangdong Province of China,  a group of  special car license plate numbers were auctioned off.  Below are the prices:
  1. "V99999" was auctioned off for RMB$ 3.2 Million (US$463k). This is the highest priced license number in China.
  2. "V88888" was auctioned off for RMB$ 2.5 Million (US$362k).
  3. "V89999" was auctioned off for RMB$ 1.6 Million (US$232k).
  4. "V89888" was auctioned off for RMB$ 1.0 Million (US$145k).

Some netizens joke about the V99999 and V88888 license plates by counting the number of 8 and 9 in each plate.  There are FIVE number 9 in V99999 and also FIVE number 8 in V88888.  The word "five" sounds like "not or no" in local Cantonese dialect (" wu").  Hence, when  the car license plate is pronounced, it becomes:

  • Five "8-- so in local dialect, "Five 8" sounds like "no prosperity or not making big money"! (粵V88888,5個8(唔發)。車主一世都唔發…。)
  • Five "9"  (the "9" pronounce as  "gou" which means "enough or sufficient")-- so in local dialect, "Five 9" sounds like "not enough or sufficient"! (粵V99999,5個9(唔夠)。車主一世都唔夠…。)

Does this numerology fetish work?  At the minimum it provides a psychological boost to create the belief that luck is on your side because of this auspicious license plate.  The huge sum paid for this license plate also projects an aura of being a successful person and is also a form of conspicuous consumption.

Similar number fetishes also happen in email addresses (like my email address kenlai88@yahoo.com), cell phone numbers and even street addresses or apartment numbers.

Bazi: Will I be fat or obese?


"First of all, we need to find out the major reason that people gain weight in terms of medicine and Chinese metaphysics. Simply put,  other than bad eating habit, junk food and life style choices, obesity is due to an individual has an efficient and overworked digestive system.  In terms of Bazi, if a person has strong earth element or strong shi-shen (-output) in his chart, he is likely to have an efficient digestive system or strong appetite."
--- taken from the Bonus Chapter, "Weight loss through Bazi and Feng Shui" in "Applied Bazi: Sickness Forecasting and Management" Video course.

In other words, besides eating habit and life style, whether one will be obese or not is also determined by his/ her Bazi natal chart.

Generally speaking, if your chart has "shi-shen" (-ouput), you have the potential of getting obese.  "Shi-shen" literally means "eating god" in Chinese.

To find if you have any shi-shen in your chart, simply go to bazi-calculator.com and key in your birthday.  First you find your day-master element (day column) and use it to check for shi-shen elements (in any column) in your chart.  The more shi-shen you have, the higher the potential of you getting obese.

Shi-shen is regarded as the "blessing god" for good appetite, self-indulgence in food and enjoying life.  Hence,  daymasters with strong shi-shen tend to get fat easily.

The location of shi-shen also affect the probability of getting obese.  The closer a shi-shen is near DM, the likely DM will get obese.  Shi-shen is closest to DM when it sits in day branch, month stem or hour stem.  Because month branch determines the temperature of the whole chart, so if shi-shen sits on day branch, it is also considered "near" the DM.

If shi-shen is not strong in the natal chart but luck period/s make/s it strong, DM may become obese during those luck period/s.

Besides output stars, one must also look at other elements in his/ her natal chart to make prediction on the possibility of obesity.  For example, if there is a resource star to control the output star, then the obesity may not happen or at least under control.  There are other factors affecting obesity like the presence or absence of peer and wealth stars.  It will take another article to explain.

Female Secrets for a "Good" Marriage

"Good" here does not mean "perfect" but satisfactory or slightly above "average".  Below are the 4-pillars or Bazi characteristics of women with good or better than average marriage.  I have included related tables for you to check if your own natal chart has these characteristics.  Simply click on the tables to enlarge them.  You need to go to bazi-calculator.com to generate your own Bazi chart first before using these tables.

BAZI CHARACTERISTICS OF WOMEN WITH GOOD MARRIAGES 
1.  Natal chart with "Zheng-guan/ Zheng-cai" (ZG/ ZC) OR "Zheng-guan/ Pian-cai" (ZG/ PC)
-- Zheng-guan (+power) represents husband for female chart.  ZC and PC are wealth elements. When a female chart has ZG/ZC or ZG/PC combination, DM will have a higher chance of marrying well, especially if ZG is the favorable element (yong-shen). 

2.  Natal chart with "Zheng-guan/ Zheng-yin" (ZG/ ZY) OR  "Zheng-guan/ Pian-yin" (ZG/ PY)
-- Zheng-yin and Pian-yin stand for "resource" elements.  Power star (husband) nurtures resource star.  Female DM with power star nurturing resource star is emotionally stable, traditional, family-oriented and dedicated to husband and children.  Hence, she has a stable marriage though it is not too romantic.

3.  Natal chart with "Qi-sha/ Shi-shen" (QS/ SS) OR  "Qi-sha/ Shang-guan" (QS/ SG)
--  Female chart with strong output star usually is not good for marriage.  But if it has Qi-sha (-power) being controlled by output star, it fosters a good marriage.  There may be some small ups and downs but it will not significantly affect the marriage.

4.  Female Day Pillar with one of the followings:  Jia-zi, Yi-hai, Ding-hai, Gui-si, Ding-you, Ji-hai, Gui-mao and Ji-you.
-- These day pillars have good branches that either nurtures the DM, is the husband star or wealth star or Nobleman star for the chart.  Hence a good marriage is expected.

5.  Female day-branch has Tian-yi, Tian-de or Yu-de Nobleman
-- These are auspicious symbolic stars (shen-sha) for femaleThey may neutralize any disharmony in a marriage.

How to find Tian-yi Nobleman in a chart:

Characteristics of Inauspicious or Haunted House

A house is inauspicious or haunted if it has the following characteristics:
  1. There are two or more deaths or severe injuries in the family within 3 years of moving-in.-- House like this usually has "sha-qi" (negative energy) like T-junction, sickle-cutting sha, heart-piercing sha or "white-tiger sha".  These negative energies cause bloody events, backstabbing and disharmony .
  2. After moving in, family members have chronic headache, fevers or diarrhea.
  3. Family members suffer frequent misfortunes and bad lucks after moving in.
  4. Family members suddenly turn against each other after moving in.
  5. After moving in, family members suffer insomnia or dreaming of ghosts.
  6. Pets like cat and dog refuse to enter the new house or certain part of the house.
  7. Baby or toddler cries when entering the new house, especially at the evenings
  8. Barely perceptible smell of rotten material or foul smell (but cannot find the source)
  9. Small animals clashing into the house and died (excluding moths)
  10. Feeling chill inside the house even in summer.
  11. Family altar tablets (of ancestors or deity) fell down or cracked  

Move away if this is your house.  The problem is that if you live in a house with these conditions, you are likely in a bad luck period and may end up in a much worse house.  Hence you should hire a Feng Shui practitioner with a proven track record to help you find another house.

If for any reason that you cannot move, as long as your problem is not due to #1 above, find a priest of your preferred religion and do a cleansing and blessing of your house (and hope the problems go away).

Bazi Characteristics of Depression and Suicide

What Bazi characteristics are found in people who are prone to depression, mental illness and suicide?  One major characteristic is wood element in one's Bazi chart is over-controlled, over-nurtured, over-drained or overwhelmed.  Wood element represents the nervous system of a person.  The nervous system and mental ability of a person will be affected when some excessive actions happened to the wood element of his Bazi chart.

Below are Bazi variables that affect one's tendency to be suicidal and depressive:

1. Weak daymaster (DM) with strong output and/ or power stars (Shi-shen/ Shang-guan and Zheng-guan/ qi-sha)
-- Daymaster with this condition is likely physically weak, lacking confidence and strong will.  Strong output stars means DM thinks too much.  Strong power stars also stand for pressure from government, superior or pressure to succeed in something (also men problems for women).   

When a chart has both strong output and power stars,  DM may suffer cognitive dissonance or conflicting emotion.  S/he looks elegant and traditional externally, but inside s/he is wild and dislike restrictions.  When running into setback, s/he is likely feeling depressed. This condition is quite common,  like when a weak DM has one or two output and/or power stars in the natal chart and luck periods bring in two or more similar stars.  This DM may either go crazy or depressive and is easily agitated to do the unthinkable. 

2. Chart with strong metal chopping wood
-- DM with weak Jia or Yi-wood usually has weak mental capacity to handle complicated life events.  If the weak wood is further controlled by strong mental, DM is prone to mental illness and even suicide. 

3. Chart with strong fire burning wood
--Wood produces fire.  If a DM runs into strong fire luck periods that drains wood, it may cause over-thinking and induces headache and nervous system related illness.  Some minor irritations or mishaps may drive DM into attempted suicide.

4. Chart with strong water floating wood
-- Water nurtures wood.  But too much water will float and rot wood, especially if there is little or no sunshine (fire) providing warmth and strong earth to anchor it.  DM with "strong water floating wood" in his chart is likely facing numerous ups and downs in life.  If such conditions last for extended periods, DM's mental condition will deteriorate and prone to mental depression.

5. Chart with strong earth cracking wood
-- Wood controls earth.  But too much or strong earth can crack wood.  When wood "cracks" in a chart, it affects the mental conditions of DM.  DM may feel too much pressure and prone to mental illness and suicide.

When you read chart with any of the above conditions, you should advice the DM to see a psychologist or at the least, tell him/ her "don't think too much" and "everything will workout itself one way or another".


With the prevalence of teen suicides in recent years, school counselors could use this Bazi knowledge to identify students with potential depression and suicidal tendency and take preventive measures.

Chart with one overwhelmingly strong or weak element usually signals major illness or negative condition in life.  To know more:

The level of Feng Shui auspiciousness and inauspiciousness for the residents of a house is affected by the move-in date. 

The table below shows the relationship between move-in date-selection and Feng Shui effect.


Below is a quick and easy way to do a date-selection for your move-in date of your new or rental house.  It is based on the door-facing direction of your new housing.  If you do not understand the terms below, simply read the Appendix below for a link to convert western dates to Chinese dates. 

DATE-SELECTION FOR MOVING
Click table to enlarge text
















Move-in date/time is the time you start moving into the new house.  You do not need to finish moving within that hour.

You may have problem fulfilling the requirements of the above table.  An acceptable alternative is that your move-in date should at least has an auspicious day and hour.  The day and hour should not clash the animal sign of the owner and Grand Duke (2017 Grand Duke sign is you-rooster).  Please note that a Chinese hour is equivalent to 2 western hours.
