Feng Shui and date-selection tips for preventing coronavirus 防武漢肺炎風水與擇日貼士


FENG SHUI TIPS AND DATE-SELECTION FOR PREVENTING CORONAVIRUS
1.  In Feng Shui, northwest is metal in nature and represents lungs.  It dislikes fire to burn it.  Check the NW side of your home, remove items that represent fire-- red items, heater and strong light fixtures from there.
2.  Remove horse and snake/ reptile pictures and figurines from NW side.  These items are fire in nature in Feng Shui.
3.  If your kitchen is in NW, it already implies hurting lungs of the residents.  The remedy is to put a ceramic pot or flower vase there.  It should not be empty.  Fill it up with clean sand or white pebbles (do not fill if you want your hubby has some extra-marital fun).
4.  For the Year of Rat (2020), the annual 5-disaster star is in the east and 2-sickness star is in the south.  Avoid staying in these 2 areas for too long.  Put in metal (brass/ copper) remedy in these areas.  This is especially important if your main door is in the east or south! 
5.  Avoid going out during wu or horse day and/ or hour (11-13:00) when the day/ hour is fire in nature and clashing Grand Duke (Tai-sui).  Probability of catching the virus is high during these times.
6.  If you know Flying Star Feng Shui, avoid staying in area with 2-5, 5-2, 9-5, 5-9, 2-9 and 9-2 flying stars.

The most dangerous time periods in the Year of Rat for infection are:

  • wu or horse hour (daily 11:00- 13:00)
  • wu or horse day (once every 12 days)
  • mao or rabbit month (Feb. 5 to April 4, 2020), east direction, especially during wu-day or 3/16, 3/28, 4/3
  • wu or horse month (June 5 to July 5, 2020), west direction, especially during wu-day or 6/8, 6/20, 7/2 
  • zi or rat month (Dec. 7, 2020 to Jan. 4, 2021), east direction, especially during wu-day or 12/17, 12/20

Of course, you still need to:
  • Wear a face-mask
  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid big crowds
If you need some divine help, come back later to get a  talisman for protection from plague and virus. 

FOR CHINESE READERS: 

防武漢肺炎風水與擇日貼士

  2. 西北方馬與蛇類塑像或圖片, 因它們肺.   
  3. 廚房西北方,已代表肺. 放一瓦花樽作化解, 内放滿白石或泥土.
  4. 2020鼠年, 五黃東, 二南, 避免在這些地方太久. 銅器皿化解.
  5. 避免午日時出行, 是 11:00-13:00, 馬,冲鼠太歲, 容易發生意外或染菌.

  • (June 5 to July 5, 2020)西方. 特别午日西 (6/8, 6/20, 7/2)<高危月>
  • (Dec. 7, 2020 to Jan. 4, 2021), 特别午日(12/17, 12/20)
  • 如果您知道飛星風水-- 遠離有以下飛星組合的位置: 2-5, 5-2, 9-5, 5-9, 2-9, 9-2

Who are your helpful friends or enemies

"Helpful friends" (also called "nobleman") are people who are likely to nurture and rescue you when you are in trouble.  "Enemies" (also called "mean people" sometimes) here refer to people who may consciously or unconsciously make your life difficult, steal your opportunities or backstabbing you.

A simple method of finding out who are your real friends or enemies is comparing the  the Chinese zodiac animal birth signs of you and the potential friends, to see if they "clash", "hai or damage" or "penalize" each other.  Below are the check list. 

Animal pairs that clash each other 相冲属相
-- Rat and horse, ox and ram, tiger and monkey, rabbit and rooster, dragon and dog, snake and pig.

Animal pairs that damage each other 相害属相

-- Rat and ram, ox and horse, tiger and snake, rabbit and dragon, monkey and pig, rooster and dog.

Animal pairs that penalize each other 属相
-- Rat and rabbit, ox, ram and dog (3-penalities), tiger, money and snake (3-penalties), pig and pig, rooster and rooster, horse and horse, dragon and dragon.

There are folk beliefs that hold:
  • Dragon and tiger fight 龙与虎会斗
  • Tiger and tiger fight  一山不容二虎
However, using animal sign to predict who is your pal or enemy is a little simplistic.  A more accurate method is using Bazi or 4-Pillars to check which element (metal, wood, water, fire or wood) that your chart needs most.  You may need a Bazi reader if you do not know Bazi. Then check the following list:

IF YOUR BAZI CHART:
-- likes metal:  monkey and rooster people born in autumn are your "nobleman"
-- dislikes metal:  monkey and rooster people born in autumn are your "mean people"

-- likes water:  rat and pig people born in winter are your "nobleman"
-- dislikes water:  rat and pig people born in winter are your "mean people"

-- likes wood:  tiger and rabbit people born in spring are your "nobleman"
-- dislikes wood:  tiger and rabbit people born in spring are your "mean people"

-- likes fire:  snake and horse people born in summer are your "nobleman"
-- dislikes fire:  snake and horse people born in summer are your "mean people"

-- likes wet earth (chen/ chou):  dragon and ox people born in 3rd or 12th solar month are your "nobleman"
-- dislikes wet earth (chen/ chou):  dragon and ox people born in 3rd or 12th solar month are your "mean people"

-- likes dry earth (wei/ xu):  ram and dog people born in 6th or 9th solar month are your "nobleman"
-- dislikes dry earth (chen/ chou):  dragon and ox people born in 6th or 12th solar month are your "mean people"

Today is your lucky day.  This is a BOGT (buy-one-get-two free) article.  The same idea can also be applied to mate-selection and business partner selection.

Is the death of Kobe Bryant due to Grand Duke effect?

Professional basketball player Kobe Bryant had died of a helicopter crash on January 26, 2020 at 9am+.  Here is the chart when the crash had occurred:

Year (annual luck)JI-HAI     
Month: DING-CHOU
Day: WU-CHEN
Hour: DING-SI

Color shows the energy distribution of the chart:  yellow is earth; blue is water; red is fire; grey is metal and green is wood
 
You may notice now is still Year of Pig even though Chinese Lunar New Year has passed.  Geng-zi or Year of Metal Rat will arrive on Feb. 4, 2020.

Kobe's birthday is August 23, 1978; hour here is estimated based on his physical appearance and personality

Year:  WU-WU
Month: GENG-SHEN
D: DING-SI
H: JIA-CHEN (estimated)

10-Year-Luck:  JIA-ZI
Annual Luck:  JI-HAI
 
Upcoming Annual Luck:  GENG-ZI

Click picture to enlarge
From the detailed color-coded Bazi charts, you can tell there are many red boxes or fire elements and few blue boxes or water elements.  However, when examine carefully, there are 3 strong water formations:
  1. shen-zi-chen water 3 unities
  2. hai-zi-chou water 3 meetings
  3. si-shen water combination
However, these combinations are not successful because there is no transformation medium ("fa-shen") water element in the stem level. 
 
There are also two serious clashes in the branch level:
  1. si-hai clash in spouse palace (day branch)
  2. zi-wu clash in year branch
Could the above contribute to the crash?  Probably not because Kobe was just 7 days short of making it to the Year of Rat.
 
However, helicopter crash is clearly zi-wu clash or water clashing fire.  The helicopter flew in foggy condition and had circled a few times due to poor visibility before hitting a hill.  Fogs are water vapor.
 
Kobe was a strong Ding-si fire daymaster and had died in a Ding-si fire hour! 

The interesting thing here is:  Hai Grand Duke is about to leave and Zi Grand Duke will come in February 4.  I have observed that it is not uncommon for people suffer major mishaps when there is a switch of new Grand Duke  (annual luck) or new 10-year-luck, especially the new one is unfavorable.  It seems the changing of annual energy is not overnight but gradual---  for example,  Geng-zi year has not arrived yet but its influence is already felt.  Geng-zi is strong water energy.
 
In Kobe's case, I suspect Geng-zi energy begins entering the earth already and reinforces water energy to battle fire energy in Kobe's chart, such as two zi-water to clash one wu-fire.  Unfortunately, the helicopter had flown in strong fire hour of Ding-si which further intensified the fire-water battle.  I wonder if the accident could be avoided if the flight was in a non-fire hour.

In this example, it does not matter if fire or water is favorable or not.  When two antagonistic elements with strong intensity exist in a chart, they will battle and create hardship or even death for the chart owner.  In Kobe's case, there is a jia-wood "mediator" in the chart, so that water will nurture wood and wood nurtures fire to avert the battling  (Note:  there is a geng-metal in the natal chart, but it is surrounded by fire and rendered it ineffective).  But when Geng-zi year arrive (in this case, it has not arrived yet), geng-metal chops jia-wood, the mediator is gone resulting in fire and water battle to death.

RIP Kobe

Recharge and Reboot your Feng Shui luck for the Year of Rat

Tomorrow (Jan. 24, 2020) will be the last day of Year of Pig and the day after will be the Chinese Lunar New Year.  Here are something you can do to enhance your luck.

"Recharge" means replenish the qi or energy of your house after a year of operation.  "Reboot" means restarting a new Feng Shui process because you feel your luck is less than satisfactory or even horrible.

Below are methods to recharge or reboot the Feng Shui energies of your house in the last day of the lunar year.

RECHARGE HOUSE FENG SHUI (do these in last day of the lunar year)
1.  Do a house cleaning, remove/ replace or repair broken or damaged items.
2.  Move your Feng Shui animals like ki-lun, calabash and the like to the location for the Year of Rat (see my previous post on Grand Duke for exact locations).
3.  Cut or remove dead leaves/ branches of any house plants.  If you want to add new plants, today or tomorrow (new year) is the best time to do it.

REBOOT HOUSE FENG SHUI
Do the #1- 3 in the "Recharge house Feng Shui" section, PLUS:
1.  At night, turn on all the lights in the house and let it on until morning.
2.  Find any portable light source (LED lights, light beam and the light) to illuminate/ flash any dark space/ corner in your house, including the underside of your bed, to drive out negative or dark energies.
3.  At mid-night (24:01), turn on any fans, open all windows and doors to force all indoor qi (energy of the Year of Pig) out of the house and draw in new year energy (do NOT do this if your luck is good in 2019).  If you want to be sure, burn some sage or incense to fume the house.  Close the door and windows when you feel the air inside your house is fresh.
4.  If you feel your personal luck was very bad in the Year of Pig, you can cleanse your aura by having another person sweeping sage or incense smoke around your body.

"Ken, can I still use these methods if I miss the last day of the year?"

Yes, wait 360+ days till Feb. 11, 2021 for the Year of Ox to do it.  But you can still use these methods in any day for cleansing.  The effects are just not as potent as doing it in the last day of the year.

Happy Year of Rat!
