Heightened emotions

Revelations and sychronicities

 

December Energetic Theme

DEEP REFELCTION

The Yang Water Rat (壬子) month starts from 7th December. It is symbolised by two elements: Yang Water on top of Yang Water Rat. With the support of the Metal energy from the Rooster 酉 Year, December brings us deeper into the Water season in the elementary sense.

The energy of Water is inward and descending, just like the nature of water is to run deep. This is the season of winter: the time to slow down, retreat when the energy is most Yin. This is the time for deep reflection.

The Yang Water 壬 is  the embodiment of wisdom. This energy supports us to venture inward, explore our inner realms and discover some raw and insightful truth. It is time to release those burdens we have been carrying that are not ours, instead, we are invited to open up to the new opportunities and vision. December’s energy helps us to expand our vision of what we want to create for our future.

Water is also associated with heightened emotions. We can expect an increased sensitivity on many levels. The Water energy also gifts us with the most vivid imagination and highest guidance and insights. It is the perfect time for self healing and self-mastery.

Many of us will feel this strong current of Yang Water, there will be times that we are confused with fiction or truth. In order not to get swept up with the tides of misinformation, we are asked to be deeply rooted and anchored. In order to rise up, we need to ground into our own energy field and listen deeply to our inner voice.

Be still, be at peace with silence and tune into your heart. Allow the distraction of the world fall away so you can tune into your own inner guidance.

Stay centred during the holiday season.  Bring the light to what needs to be revealed, initiate your desires and changes with clarity.

Because 2018 is going to be a year of manifestation and actions.

 

WOOD ELEMENT

There is a thunderstorm building within you or around you that is causing your roots to quake. It might be a storm of building emotions, threatening to erupt or already exploring beyond your control. You may find it confronting. Or it might be pressure from your own minds, creating unnecessary burden, such as fears or self-doubt.

Don’t fear it. After all, storm is just nature’s way of gathering energy together that needs to be release.  Instead, get excited! With a release of tension, relief and freedom soon follow, often with a fresh perspective and perhaps the gift of a promising vision of your future.

The focus are likely to be around your residence, property decisions, your mother or other close relatives as well as your health.

FIRE ELEMENT

December is a month of Personal Power for the Fire people. You will feel incredibly centred and powerful this month. Breathe into the depths of your belly, you move with more rhythm and strength.

When we ignite the power of our inner fire, we feel courageous, confident in the direction of our future goals.

Align your vision and activate your desires. 2018 is a year of manifestation!

December is also a great month for  ladies if you are looking for romantic connections.

EARTH ELEMENT

Money continues to be the key theme for the Earth people this month. The difference is that you have gained so much clarity on how to create your own abundance in your life. Your material needs are provided as you follow your intuition and manifest your dreams into reality. Open your arms to receive it!

Some of the treasure will come in the forms of brilliant ideas, and some will come as opportunities. Release any of your worries to the divine light, knowing that you are supported.

Embrace abundance and welcome in money. Use it consciously and be generous with yourself and others.

METAL ELEMENT

The  strong Water energy in December will bring heightened emotions as well as wisdoms to the Metal people.

The seamless interchange between the two Water elements will bring  an enormous amount of information in order to cleanse your perceptions and open up to a new vision of the future.

There will be high level of insights being downloaded, revelations, synchronicities and incoming communications. It can be powerful beyond measure, at the same time, can also feel overwhelming.

Trust in the process and be open to release the old patterns and blockages.

WATER ELEMENT

It is important for the Water people to stay grounded in December as you might be feeling things are slipping out of your grip at some point.  The strong Water energy represents resistance, competitive forces as well as obstacles.

You can find strength within you to move through any obstacle that stands in your way towards your soul’s path.

The best way to stay anchored and not to be swept away is to take a step back from the life situation and connect with the ever present nature. Feel the peace, innocence and love above all.

Simply be.

November Monthly Energy Update – DISCOVER NEW SHORE

An Odyssey,

a quest,

a spiritual wandering that finally leads to an epic discovery. 

A journey of self-discovery from disbelief to faith

To those who find it, 

a kingdom can be formed and last for eternity.

November Energetic Theme

DISCOVER NEW SHORE

The Yin Metal Pig (辛亥) month greets us on 7th November and is symbolised by two elements: Yin Metal sitting on top of Yin Water. November’s energy signals the official arrival of the Winter season and is dominated by the water energy. 

The Yin Metal energy is the definitive element of value,  associated with jewels or treasure.  With the gentle energy of water flowing underneath this month, this jewel is being polished and crafted, ready for its true value and beauty for the world to see.

In the Five Elements, water represents wisdom and truth as well as emotions. As we edge closer and closer to  Yin energy towards the end of the year, you might sense a shift in your mood and energy level. Layers of emotions will be revealed, making you reflect on what has happened so far. 

You will also start noticing the landscape around you changed subtly. Without knowing how and when it happened, you are indeed in a very different space now. And if you take a closer look, treasures are being revealed along the shore after the storm. Holding those gems in your hands, you gasp in disbelief how you could  be so blind! You had them all along! 

Things are being revealed.

Truth is being transmitted.

You are clearly seeing what you have not been able to see before.

New shore is being discovered.

A new structure is being established.

Freedom start to emerge within you.

If you have been shedding layers of your old identity and been asking yourself tough questions such as “what do I really desire in life?” and “what can I envision changing?" , answers will come to the fore in November.

You will notice that suddenly, you are in a new paradigm. 

Four Pillar of Destiny Chart Prediction

Each month, I outline the energy dynamic so you can be aware of it, and therefore feel empowered. The aim of this is to heighten your awareness and ride the tidal wave, especially at difficult times. At the same time, actively seeking solutions to minimise the conflicting energy is the best strategy to manage challenging times. Take advice from the below predictions or seek out a 1-on-1 Destiny Profiling session to pre-empt any major collision.

quote-left

WOOD ELEMENT

November's Water energy supports your social life and invite you to spend more time with your family and friends. It is also an excellent month for single ladies to meet someone. 

On the other hand, the contracting metal energy can force you to face some internal struggles that have been going on for years regarding  your desire for change, freedom and creativity. If you ask the right questions, this is the month to get answers. 

quote-left

FIRE ELEMENT

If your Fire element is being supported by the other elements in your Destiny chart, you will find this month is a great month to make some money or discover new ways of creating wealth.

You might also be caught in the storm unwillingly. See beyond those life situations, as most of them were created by the illusion of ego. If you create the success by supporting and serving others, you will find 'new earth'. 

November is the month that asks you to evolve if you crave change. You will firstly have to become clear on what is lacking in your life.

quote-left

EARTH ELEMENT

You might feel torn this month, between the movement of expansion and the contraction, of freedom versus control. 

Focus on what do you want and your journey. What you sow, you reap. This is a month for high productivity, so get into  creative mode. 

November might put a bit pressure on the money front, but a better time is ahead.

quote-left

METAL ELEMENT

The  Metal people  is back in the game now. After a few months of feeling confused and lacking clarity, you will  finally feel anchored and motivated. 

Your talent will be revealed and recognised by others this month. You might be surprised at first but  you can't hide any more. Step up and rise to the occasion. There is a bigger purpose in this that is not just about you. 

Opportunities are being shown, which will lead to abundance. 

This is a month you are being super persuasive, so be sure to launch any new projects or services into the market. You will get noticed!

quote-left

WATER ELEMENT

Water people are energised by November's energy and will be riding waves to explore new territories. Keep an open heart, knowing that the forces of the universe are forever transcend any ordinary experiences. 

Connect with like-minded souls and allow that creative expression and ideas to be born. This month you have the ability to gravitate people around you to move the project along.

November is also a great time to study, take a new course, or generally anything that cultivate your growth, especially in regard to your career and self-development. 


Sending love

October Monthly Energy Update – EMBODY THE ESSENCE

The Yang Metal Dog (庚戌) month starts from 8th October. There is harmony between the two elements and October gifts us an interesting preview of what is in-store for 2018.  

October Energetic Theme

EMBODY THE ESSENCE

8th October marks the end of the metal season in the elementary sense. To many people, this is a sweet relief. When a strong Metal energy is at work, it can feel harsh and brutal, we feel the old wounds being inflicted. It is important to know that time like this is difficult but necessary, it is the getaway for us to heal and ultimately return to our wholeness and embody our true essence. 

The earthy Dog month came just at the right time, to soothe the discomfort after the turbulence, the transition of the change and the initial adjustments we have to go through after a major transformation.  

It assists us focus on what is paramount, what is essential and embody what is at core - what is 'at essence'.

It feels solid and grounding, just like the mother earth, we feel being held and supported. At the same time, it gives us that sense of comfort and contentment so we can reflect and tune inward to open up. This energy cultivates your ability to see beyond the surface and integrate something deeper that you have discovered during the metal phase so you have the courage to make changes. 

You will feel your psychic ability and connection to the heaven is heightened in the next 4 weeks. This is because in Chinese astrology,  Dog is the earth sign that connects the spiritual and physical worlds, the Yin and Yang, the ‘dying’ and ‘rebirthing’.

If you have been making space during September to process what is dying and what is coming alive and honouring the ‘letting go’ energy, in October, you will be rewarded with wisdoms after deep reflection, clarity after integration and what makes you feel whole and truly in alignment. 

You are re-remembering those truths you already know within you. You are returning to your alignment and wholeness. You are likely to feel the strong sense of bond, community and the Oneness.

Ask yourself questions that are deeply related to your desires, passion as well as how you related to other people, such as:

  • What makes you feel whole?
  • How do you relate to others? Spouse, parents, close friends?
  • Are those relationship reflect the truth about you? Anything that is not in alignment?
  • What makes you feel nurtured and content?
  • What are you passionate about and willing to put yourself on the line to defend?
  • Do you feel belong? Belong to a community, family, circle of friends? Or here on earth in general?
  • What can make you feel anchored and grounded?

On the physical level, the October’s earthy energy will also shake a lot of things up that are not in alignment and can be manifested in the form of earth-related disasters such as earthquakes, volcano eruptions or landslides around the world.

Take advice from the below predictions or seek out a 1-on-1 Destiny Profiling session to pre-empt any major collision.

quote-left

WOOD ELEMENT

This month, the Yang Wood people is likely to encounter some difficult people or challenging situations, surrender and creativity are the key words. It’s time to work through your present mindset and see things from a fresh perspective. The alternative answers and solutions will keep your move through the blocks and undesired thinking patterns.

If your Self-element is Yin wood, October is a much more harmonious month. Your talent, ideas or opinions are likely to be recognised. You might be chosen for a new project or be presented with a new opportunity. You are also highly likely to attract some love interest. 

quote-left

FIRE ELEMENT

In October, You might find yourself in  situations that you are not heard. You might feel rejected at first. See this as an opportunity for you to tune into what truly matters to you, what nurtures you and what really makes you feel content.  You might be surprised to discover something that is the very core of yourself. 

On the other hand, things are looking up on the finance front. Don’t be shy to take the credit at work for the effort you put in. 

quote-left

EARTH ELEMENT

October brings family and relationship into focus. What does your family mean to you? Do you have a strong sense of belonging? You may also think more deeply about the love towards your family as well as your romantic relationship. What does true love mean to you?

Our heart has intelligence and wisdom that sees well beyond the surface of life, to the energetic essence in all moments. Spend some time with your heart, are they open and compassionate or closed and blocked from past hurt?

It is only when the energy is free flowing we can invite new love into our life.  Are we allow ourselves to forgive, to accept and have compassion for others? Imagine you are removing some logs and rocks from the river so this love can be free flowing again. 

quote-left

METAL ELEMENT

If September has left you feeling challenged and at lost of a solution, let go of all expectations. The major life challenge for Metal people is to ‘let go’. 

If you are trying to hold things too tightly, loosen your grip. If you are trying to control the situation, let things fall apart. You will be surprised by releasing the attachment, how much flow it can create. 

This is a great month to go out and find like-minded people and build connections. By creating a bond within the community you belong, you will learn what are the true essence to your being and expand your awareness to another level. 

quote-left

WATER ELEMENT

If you have been doing some inner work last month, you will see result in October - the intelligence you have embodied within your own inner knowing will manifest in a way you would have never anticipated. You might suddenly realise that you are quite powerful. Yes you are, sister! 

Your inner knowing is the only compass you can rely on while you are journeying through those terrains. Your external surrounding will shift and change, but as far as you are rooted firmly into your being, you will be led to the opening towards to the ocean. 

October is a gift that mother earth gives us so we can relax into this energy and focus upon the necessary internal journey and its transformative potential.  Embrace it!

Sending love

September Monthly Energy Update – Letting Go

The Yin Earth Rooster (己酉) month starts from 7th September. It is symbolised by two elements: Yin Earth on top of Yin Metal Rooster. 

This is a significant month in both Bazi and Feng Shui terms, as the monthly energy will duplicate the yearly energy. In other words, the energy will be magnified and intensified. 

September Energetic Theme

Letting Go

This month’s energy will stir at the deepest level within you, bringing out a lot of emotions and issues you have been harbouring for quite a while. This process will nevertheless give birth to something new in you, and this birth will transform into great joy and a sense of tremendous liberation. 

In order to let this transformation unfold, you are being asked to dispense with your reliance on the past, to release and let go, in every aspect of your life. 

If you have been working with the August energy to dig deep and Unearth Your Treasure, you will find it much easier to ride this month’s tidal wave. If you are very attuned or sensitive, you may have consciously felt this rumblings and stirrings already - with excitement, discomfort or both.

This month, the metal Rooster energy will reach its peak. As it is also supported by the gentle and nurturing Yin Earth, it is extremely potent. 

Like a sword, it can cut loose anything that is no longer serves you, so that you can travel lighter and fly to the higher realms. You have outgrown the old aspects of you. 

To be filled, we must first be empty. 

This could also reflect on a physical level, such as in your personal environment:  a clean out of some sort, a change of address, or a declutter of your home. You might feel the urge to do a ‘spring cleaning’ so you can upgrade your environment to match the new vibration. 

It could also mean you might want to get out of your normal social circle and make some radical changes, i.e. change jobs, pick up a hobby, cut loose a toxic relationship, establish new networks or changing dynamics within the family.

The nature of the metal energy is to evoke major shifts, changes and transformation. It can bring many events that shake up, alter and rearrange your life in order to relocate you in a place you’re meant to be, physically, emotionally or mentally. It can feel like the end sometimes, it is often heralding a new beginning.

Metal is also the element that gives us connection to the heavenly realms and helps us to understand that there is more to life than the ‘day to day’ - we are connected to ‘all that is’.

No matter what is happening in your life this month, just trust there is an affinity between you and this strangely beautiful newness that is seeking to manifest.

Feng Shui Serenity Five Element Wood
quote-left

WOOD ELEMENT

Always systematic, the ambitious Wood people will consider September as the month for their Life Review. What have you learnt so far? How can these lessons be a valuable asset for the future? You will recognise the life patterns that aren’t serving your highest good, and take steps to release those old patterns.

The strong metal energy this month can exhaust your liver's energy. If you tend to wake up between 1am and 3am it’s likely due to some built-up anger within you. This energy is associated with an excess of yang energy. Try to drink a glass of cold water and meditate.

If your Self Element is Yang Wood 甲, like a magnet, you will attract money this month. It is also likely to be in a form of some kind of gift.  A change of career is possible. 


Feng Shui Serenity Five Element Fire
quote-left

FIRE ELEMENT

This month, allow yourself to gradually shed what has become burdensome and no longer congruent with your soul’s purpose. It can be an emotional process, but you know it is time to let anything in your life fall away that is no longer useful or needed for the emerging expression of who you are, just like the trees know to shed their leaves in preparation for the next cycle of life. 

Conserve your energy by allowing yourself more rest while at the same time making preparations for the new life stage emerging. 

Look especially at your material possession and be brutally honest with yourself as you discern which of these can be given away or somehow release. You will feel lighter. 


Feng Shui Serenity Five Element Earth
quote-left

EARTH ELEMENT

There would be no satisfaction in cruising through life without people and relationships to enrich and expand you. In September, you are reviewing all kinds of relationships between you and others. Are they nurturing your soul or making you feel deflated? Has the way you deal with certain relationship fall into an old pattern that is not honouring the truth about you? 

This month’s energy will help you see all the underlying patterns despite apparent chaos and confusion. There will be days you feel entangled and there will be days that you'll need to make hard decisions. 

Be proactive in cleaning out and getting rid of the old and bringing in improvements to support the new. It is the only way to re-invent, recreate and rebirth yourself.


Feng Shui Serenity 5 Elements Metal
quote-left

METAL ELEMENT

Don’t get attached to anything or anyone this month. The energy within the Universe is ever changing, ever moving. Nothing stays the same. If one thing doesn’t work out, let go. 

Metal people are highly attuned to the higher realm this month, receiving guidance, healing and creative tools that will help them to create a fulfilling reality. 

Amidst the fast pace of change and challenge in life, it can be very easy to get caught in ‘action’ and ‘doing’, whiling forgetting the ‘being’ part of life. Cultivate the clear vision by creating the moment wit even breath and quite mind. 

Bath in moonlight, wonder at the stars and be in sync with the rhythm of nature. This is the best way to access the higher intelligence that is available to us. Bring balance to your vision and your action.

The universe is moving up to a higher frequency, so listen out for it.


Feng Shui Serenity 5 Elements Water
quote-left

WATER ELEMENT

Water people are never afraid of changes. It is in their psyche that they are always evolving, and moving forward, leaping from one state of being to the next. 

September provides an opportunity for you to let go of old thinking patterns, methods or frameworks in order to embody your own innate intelligence. It is time to integrate new concepts into your current way of living and to uncover, remember and trust the deep inner knowing of how to live your life.

In one sense, intelligence maybe activated by expanding knowledge through teachers, books and lessons in the external world. In a deeper sense, our true intelligence is an infinite essence that has been within us since well before our arrival here at this school on Earth and it will remain with us long after we move on.

Learn to awaken to a fuller experience of your own innate intelligence.

Enjoy this expansive, cleansing and liberation experience of"letting go"....

August Monthly Energy Update – Unearth Your Treasure

The Yang Earth Monkey (戊申) month starts from 7th August. It is symbolised by two elements: Yang Earth on top of Yang Metal Monkey.  

As we wave goodbye to the expansive and expressive Fire energy, the transitional Earth energy starts to settle in. We are called to be centred in order to process the information we have downloaded from the higher realm in the last few months.

August Energetic Theme

UNEARTH YOUR TREASURE

The Yang Earth represents the most ancient energy of Mother Earth, who holds many untold secrets in her womb. It is the oldest element, which existed before any other elements. There is nothing that this earth cannot keep or contain.

And if you dig just a bit deeper, precious treasure that is concealed is waiting to be unearthed. 

This is the month to discover your hidden talents that you may not be aware of and explore the future potential and opportunities that are rightfully yours.

No matter how powerful you are, how much courage and strength you have, there are times when you can’t quite move through a certain phase or can’t get rid of a feeling of hitting a wall. This is when you need some divine intervention from the Universe. Such invisible help is now coming, just at the right time.

As the abundant and ancient Earth is sitting on top Yang Metal, we are given a powerful tool to dig beneath the surface to uncover the gems that lie buried from many lifetimes ago. This divine intervention gives us an edge, to access valuable resources to take us beyond what we might think is our personal limit — to reach the core of our gifts and our genius. 

It shifts, bends and moves in ways that defy limitations. It can affect, evoke and influence situations through invisible but undeniably persuasive means.

At times, don’t be surprised if the rumble of change turns into a mighty roar bursting forth as novel ideas, changing things in a way that is out of your control. Free-fall into it.

There is also harmony within this month, as the Earth is the mother element of the Metal. Therefore, although the Metal will be strong and powerful,it is also tactful, so the approach is going to be friendly. Given that Metal is the element of precision, you will also gain a sense of strategic guidance for the future. There are also moments of joy and dreamy connections to be had.

You need to have complete faith in the process and events that are happening. To move most fully and easily, and with the most grace and assistance, you should take an approach of complete surrender.

Four Pillar of Destiny Chart Prediction

Each month, I outline the energy dynamic so you can be aware of it, and therefore feel empowered. The aim of this is to heighten your awareness and ride the tidal wave, especially at difficult times. At the same time, actively seeking solutions to minimise the conflicting energy is the best strategy to manage challenging times. Take advice from the below predictions or seek out a 1-on-1 Destiny Profiling session to pre-empt any major collision.

In August, if your Self Element is Yin Wood or Yin Earth, the Monkey represents the Nobleman for you — meaning extra benefits for you during the month of August.

The Monkey sign clashes with Tiger, however. So if you were born in the Year of the Tiger or have Tiger anywhere in your Destiny chart, there will be moments of conflict. You might also discover that some people in your life have a hidden agenda.

WOOD Element  

Wood people are great taskmasters with strong principles. August can challenge your flexibility in various ways, however, you will find unexpected treasure at the end of the month.

You might encounter some difficult people, but don’t get caught up in a power play. Set your own agenda, don’t play the game. The best way to show your strength is be completely at ease in the face of adversity and not feel threatened.

Instead, use your assertive energy on yourself to discover some gems that haven been hidden centuries ago that truly belong to you. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Let the challenges be your inspiration and not define you. Be adventurous in your thinking.

FIRE Element

August can be a productive month all round. You are making speedy headway on the projects you are working on and there is nothing that can stop you.

Many things seems to be unfolding without you consciously being aware of it. Let it evolve at its own pace. It is inevitable as long as you put complete trust in the process.

It has an innate rhythm of its own, which you should sense, being an intuitive one of the Five Elements.

There is also prosperity in this month, and you have power to conquer.

EARTH Element 

This month, be open and allow guidance to come through without resistance. You are learning and growing. With this month’s energy, you are most likely to uncover some truth you’ve never noticed before: some revelations, or perhaps someone’s hidden agenda.

Grant yourself solitude. So you can evoke different feelings (some feelings might be foreign to you) based on your perception and beliefs. This month’s energy is supportive to provide you an elegant reminder that even in what might appear to be the most harsh circumstance, beauty and light are still there.

Surround yourself with like-minded people, and you will discover a gold mine.

METAL Element

For Metal people, the highest priority this month is to look after your health. Something you intuitively knew but are reluctant to face up to will surface again for you to review. You should not delay but get on with it.

The water residing within the Monkey sign is gentle and soft, it serves as a cleanser and polisher in order to keep the Metal shiny and illuminated. August is a great supportive month to tend to your wellbeing, whether it be physical, mental or emotional.

You are likely to discover some truth about yourself and recognise this higher truth beyond apparent limits. Honour the path you have walked so far and all you have become. The treasure you are seeking is in fact inside you.

WATER Element 

At times you might feel blocked, contaminated or restrained. This is what the Earth does to Water, like a dam. However, there is a reason for these blockages and obstacles to be put in front of you: they help you to re-think the way you normally approach things.

It forces you to change the course of your pathways or actions. Just when you think there is absolutely no way forward, you suddenly discover a pathway towards your destiny (like a river winding towards the ocean).

This month, some sadness buried deeply within your heart might emerge. Embrace it and then release it to the light. Don’t let it affect your spirit. You are strongly connected to your sixth sense and are naturally intuitive. Honour this part of yourself.

Have a fun-filled treasure hunting month of August!

July Monthly Energy Update – Grounding Before New Leap

July (from 7th July - 6th August) is symbolised by two elements - Yin Fire on top of Yin Earth Goat. The Yin Fire energy is like the candle light, although fickle and unstable, when being ignited can cause even greater damage than the Yang Fire we saw in June.

July Energetic Theme

GROUNDING BEFORE NEW LEAP

The month of July marks the official ending of the Fire season on an energetic sense. This is where the impulsive and bold Fire energy starts to fade out and begins to turn inward after ‘burning everything fiercely into the ground’.

After last month’s higher connection, the Earth Goat energy calls upon us to be deeply rooted to review issues that immediately concerning with our physical environment, such as our home, our physical wellbeing, family, tribe, mother, food & nourishment, including ancestral inheritance.  

This is the time of transition and integration. In the process of re-evaluating what we have inherited from our family and tribe, we discover the deep sense of belongings and the freedom to be unique.

 It is the time to build our stamina and endurance before we leap into new height.​

The Earth Goat is also a peace warrior, stabilising the bold Fire energy into a more coherent and balanced force to sustain us. It is a great reminder for all of us that it is not only necessary to connect to the sky but also being grounded to the mother earth.

When July finishes, we won’t be seeing another Fire month until April 2018, and the next strong Fire year is 8-year away, not until 2025. Although it was devastating to see the havoc the double Yang Fire energy caused in the June (ie. London inferno, wild forest fire in Portugal etc), we will be missing this joyful and optimism energy in the air. The absence of the Fire element can also greatly affect the economy as well as pushing the share market into recession.

July is a great month to show off your unique gifts. It is time you offer it to others so they can be inspired. Teaching, creation, healing, whatever it might be. Don’t put it off any longer.

If you have something close to your heart that has been on your agenda for a while, try to do it in July! You are likely to accomplish it with the Fire energy in the air, otherwise it might never happen.

Prosperity is also on the card for the Wood people this month, especially when you are able to be your unique self. Having the freedom to unleash your spirit is the key to access this abundance.

FIRE Element

After the busy and heightened spirit you've had in June, you are likely to be recuperating your energy in July. You may feel a bit lost at times but rest assured, you will be guided to discover some parts of yourself you’ve never known before.

You will be inspired.

This month also provides an opportunity for you to pause and reflect. It is time to release your worries and concerns what may happen in the future (which Earth people tend to do). Instead, learn to trust and appreciate that everything you have that is good and well.

Most importantly, get in touch with nature, play! Give yourself permission to be a kid again.

METAL Element

There has been many things come into light after June’s strong Fire energy, things have truely been shaken up. Be courageous to act upon your convictions, even at times, you don’t think it is possible. 

Truth speaks to us constantly, but not always in words. Listen deeper beneath the words. Sometimes, our reluctance to face the truth is in fact the fear of acknowledge some old wounds. Let go. You are being asked to love yourself enough to honour the truth. If the compassion does not include yourself, it is not complete.

July is the best month to put down roots to feel balanced, grounded, powerful and vital. Treat yourself!

WATER Element 

A new path is emerging for the Water people, the theme continues to be on the wealth-creation front. You are being invited to commit to coming alive through this transition, even if at times this feels deeply challenging.

Sometimes a part of you may rather stay locked in an illusion of security that is familiar and comfortable, comparing to what is unknown and uncomfortable. It can seem so risky, with such potential for heartache, and yet what could be more heart-wrenching than the slow death of a precious human soul, suffocated by fear? That is the greatest risk, of never really and fully being born into this world of wonders.

July will also bring your love and romance relationship in review. Are there anything not in harmony? What are you resisting beneath the calm surface? July’s energy is nourishing enough so you can rest and reflect in a safe environment.

For singles, this energy can bring new love interest into your life.

There are so much to look forward to in July.  It is also a great time to book in a Feng Shui Consultation to evaluate your home or office environment. I hope I will be able to support you on that front too.  Happy July!

June Energy Update – Higher Connection

If you have felt that the last two months’ strong wood energy left somewhat an imprint of anger or anxiety in your energy field, June’s strong Yang Fire energy will bring a perfect opportunity to release, heal and ascend so that you can feel lighter.

In June, the energy will be going through a major shift, dominated by the Yang Fire energy. The Yang Fire Horse month (丙午) starts on 5th June and is symbolised by two elements: Yang Fire sitting on top of Yang Fire Horse.

June Energetic Theme

HIGHER CONNECTION

This Yang Fire energy is expanding and radiating the warmth we so desperately need in light of recent events far away and close to home. It will bring compassion, joy and optimism to humanity; it will show us that love can dissolve fear and at the end of the day, the Oneness of all that is. This is because the Yang Fire represents life energy: its nature is to connect, especially to the higher realm and higher consciousness.

For this reason, June is also a great month for energy workers, healers, intuitives or anyone who draws inspiration and creativity from an elevated level to reach a higher connection, to draw inspiration or ideas that are ‘out there’. 

Consciously create space for this, allow yourself be the vehicle to receive this. Mediate and receive this gift from the universe. The portal is open this month.

The Fire energy, in traditional Chinese medicine, also represents the heart, nervous system, blood circulation and blood vessels. Therefore June is also a good month to speak from the heart and express your truth.

Finally, the Yang Horse energy will add a sense of adventure and novelty to this month: you might want to venture out to do things differently. You might also get a bit impulsive. This energy can make June a tad dramatic and emotional, so try to stay grounded.

In general, this is a month to reach higher, create space for a spiritual quantum leap. It is a land of opportunities!

BaZi Prediction

Each month, I outline the energy dynamic so you can be aware of it, and therefore feel empowered. The aim of this is to heighten your awareness and ride the tidal wave, especially at difficult times. At the same time, actively seeking solutions to minimise the conflicting energy is the best strategy to manage challenging times. Take advice from the below predictions or seek out a 1-on-1 Destiny Profiling session to pre-empt any major collision.

If you were born on 丙午 day, you are highly intelligent and are likely to possess a sharp mind and excel in an academic field. Do not let this talent go wasted.

If your Day Master is Yin Wood 乙, the Horse represents the Academic Star for you. If you have been wanting to write a book, start a blog or simply share your passion with the world, this moth’s energy will make it completely effortless. So what are you waiting for?

WOOD Element  

​June can be a very production month for Wood people.  You feel compelled to move through things. and that sense of achievement gives you even more energy to strive. You are a fearless powerhouse

If you have a proposal or idea in mind, June is a great month to get it off the ground. Your heightened ability to communicate and express your idea is incredible. Success is imminent.

If Fire is not the element that in favour of you, be careful of what you say. Think twice before you speak.

FIRE Element

June can a sociable month to spend with your family and friends, but don't take their support for granted. 

This month, you are being offered an opportunity to serve, to assist, and to offer a genuine spiritual contribution to this planet. In return, you will feel empowered. You are the element that is easily connected to the spirit, the higher realm. Honour it. Be the channel.

In June, you are likely to sink into silence more than usual. Create a sacred space for yourself and reach within. The answer you are seeking is already within you.

EARTH Element 

Both Yin and Yang Earth are strongly supported by this month's energy.   You feel vital and powerful.

You are being offered a precious gift from the universe: to be inspired. This gift of the Divine will lift you beyond what you have known into the next opening of your inner eye and your heart, so you can see the Heaven on Earth.

The key is to allow it to happen. Let go of all your resistance and restraints; approach life through the sheer pleasure of aliveness without thought.

It should come as no surprise if you are taking up some courses to learn new skills or pursue further education in an area that your heart has long desired.

METAL Element

Are you being fearful? About the future? About who you are? About the path you are currently walking on?

Yes, it is true that this month’s Fire energy will bring some pressure and stress for you, as Fire burns Metal. But please don’t forget, my loves, that this fire is also the key to melting and re-shaping the metal in order to transform it.

You are going through an important phase and fast approaching a moment of a great leap. Just like the ugly duckling transforming into an elegant swan, do not confuse humility with humiliation. Do not humble yourself excessively. You do not have to battle with false pride either. Simply honour yourself as a living being, worthy of a good life, worthy of this divine path of realisation.

Gracefully cast off your old tattered skin and shine brightly in your evolution. This is who you are born to be.

WATER Element 

June’s energy will bring your focus towards the way you create your wealth. If the Fire element works in your favour, June can be an abundant month, manifesting not only a healthier bank account but also your way of thinking. You will feel abundant in your power, in your options and in all possibilities.

On the contrary, if the Fire element works against you, you might be challenged on the money-making front. Trust in your changing perspective and perceptions. Don’t hold on to what you once believed or thought to be true. Allow yourself to be shown another version of events, another way of receiving.

In June,  trust in the intelligence of your higher-self whose purpose is to keep you on the right path and enjoy the flow of alignment. Happy June!

Bazi & Feng Shui Energy Prediction – April 2017

April Energetic Theme

BIRTH YOUR VISION

The Yang Wood Dragon (甲辰) month starts on 5th April and is symbolised by two elements: Yang Wood sitting on top of Yang Earth.

When we have the presence of Yang wood, it always brings a feeling of ascending,  uplifting and rising. This is because the energetic impulse of the Wood is to move upwards. The Wood element also symoolizes vision in life. 

The Dragon belongs to the Earth element. This earth energy is particularly nurturing and grounding, as it contains water. It provides fertile ground for vibrant new shoots to burst out of the soil. The vibration is open, accepting and harmonising. 

In April, you might find that fresh ideas, visions or even a new sense of life are emerging within you, perhaps even below the level of your conscious mind.

This could manifest as a new relationship, a new idea that needs to be nurtured to fullness, a new way of thinking, or a new way of “being” in the world. It might feel foreign at first, and require some adjustment; but you can open up to a fearless acceptance of bigger, brighter and more potent possibilities of creatively living your light in the world.

Things will start to integrate and take shape towards the end of the month. If you give yourself a gift of some solitude, creative visions and ideas are likely to emerge.

BaZi Prediction

Each month, I outline the energy dynamic so you can be aware of it, and therefore feel empowered. The aim of this is to heighten your awareness and ride the tidal wave, especially at difficult times. At the same time, actively seeking solutions to minimise the conflicting energy is the best strategy to manage challenging times. Take advice from the below predictions or seek out a 1-on-1 Destiny Profiling session to pre-empt any major collision.

The Dragon 辰 is a natural harmoniser in the Year of the Rooster 酉. This month will therefore see many kinds of partnerships being formed: romantically, politically and professionally. This certainly is a welcome change from the clash month we've just had.

It is also a good month financially, if your Day Master is Wood or Earth. Your bank account will seem to grow by the day.

The forecasts below are based on your self-element. If you don’t know what your self-element is, get your FREE Four Pillars of Destiny chart HERE. This prediction effectively only counts as 1/8 of your monthly luck (given it is only based on your Day Master). Book a Destiny-reading session HERE to see what is in store specifically for you.

WOOD Element  

​April is a great month for Wood people to accumulate  wealth without trying too hard. It might be in the form of a dividend payout, or perhaps you have suddenly strike up a major business deal that will secure your next 12 month of earnings. However, pay attentions to details; be aware some people or circumstances can blindside you when you least expect it.

You might also find that a new path is emerging from the thin air. Try to heighten your awareness, so you are guided.

Play your magic! 

FIRE Element

April is the month that people start to realize what an integral part you have been playing. You are the glue, you are the missing ingredient that makes the whole dynamic work. Enjoy the recognition.

If you are looking for new opportunities or a renewed career path, April is a month to shine your light. You will get noticed. 

Take time to deepen the connection with your partner if you are in a relationship. For singles, it will be a great time to meet some like-minded souls. 

EARTH Element 

Since earlier this year, you have been called for new growth, new perspectives and a new way of living.  This year heralds great transformation for you if you are flexible.  Go with the flow and embrace the changes. 

This month in particular, you will find that whatever is not aligned within you internally is going to play out in reality. It can be challenging at times, but you have grown so much already and are capable of handing these challenges. If the challenge is around love and relationship, firstly ask yourself, do you love yourself enough? If you feel not being respected, ask yourself do you respect yourself ? Always go within, the answers are there. 

Take good care of your 'Heart chakra'. 

METAL Element

​It will be a highly sociable month for the Metal people to make connections, gather with friends and families. There is a lot of love and harmony in the air.  

Metal people can be quite discerning as to whom they associate with. Open your heart this month and welcome to whoever comes into your circle — something wonderful will bloom.

If your Day Master is Yin Metal, it can also be a good time to make some money, especially if you run your own business. You must clearly communicate what you want, though.

WATER Element 

Last month could have been challenging for some of you, especially if your Day Master is Yin Water. April will bring you renewed vision. You will feel awakened and ready to undertake a new adventure.

April can also bring your love life into the spotlight. You are likely to meet someone or finally settle into a newly-formed partnership. Enjoy the calming and harmonious energy. 

Flying Star Feng Shui APRIL Highlights

Everything in the universe is an ever-changing affair, including the qualities of the energy surrounding the space we live in. Flying Star Feng Shui is the only school that takes into consideration the influence of time. Therefore it is one of the most complex, accurate and powerful forms of Feng Shui. Flying stars are so called because they fly with the movement of the days, months and years. It is therefore possible to pinpoint the movement of the energy.

To simplify an otherwise very complicated practice of Flying Star Feng Shui, in each monthly prediction I will point out where the benevolent energy is located and where there is negative energy that needs to be managed.

It is essential to first know the inherent natal chart of your home, as this never changes. You can then add the monthly star on top of the natal chart of your home to assess whether the sector is auspicious or not. Your home’s natal chart can only be provided by a qualified Feng Shui consultant. To learn more, please CLICK HERE. Blindly applying any enhancements or remedies suggested in this post could well have an adverse effect.

Most Auspicious Sector:  CENTRE & NORTHEAST 


The heaven luck shines brightly upon the centre of every household in April, bringing career recognition and money luck.  If your home's natal chart in the centre is auspicious, you can activate this auspicious energy with an indoor water feature during this time. There might be a windfall coming your way. 

The NE sector continues to be the winning sector of the month.  Couples staying in this part of the house will find it easy to conceive this month. Display a pair of Mandarin Ducks to enhance the romance energy. 

NE sector continues to be the winning sector of the month.  Couples staying in this part of the house will find it easy to conceive this month. Display a pair of Mandarin Ducks to enhance the romance energy. 

Keep children away from the  WEST & EAST Sectors


If children's bedrooms are in these two sectors, take precaution by placing a metal Calabash  or a Six-metal-coin  in these areas. If a play area happens to be in these two sectors, be careful to prevent any injuries or accidents. 

Embody your vision, my loves, and let the journey unfolding for you without forcing it! 

Happy April!

Bazi & Feng Shui Energy Prediction – March 2017

The Yin Water 癸 Rabbit 卯 month starting on 5th March signals the official arrival of the Spring season in an energetic sense. In the Five Elements, the rabbit represents the Wood energy. It also corresponds to the season of spring, when the Yang energy is at its peak.

After a slow start to the year, March will give you that much-needed drive and motivation to move forwards. You will notice things starts to pick up. Any projects in idle will restart.​

March Energetic Theme

CHANGING LANDSCAPE

This month’s energy heralds enormous changes ahead. These changes will shake up any stagnant energy or areas in your life. Due to the sudden impulse of this wood energy, these changes can be quite unpredictable and happen at lightning speed. Embrace it, move along with it, take the initiative and be the change - create a new landscape of your own.

BaZi Prediction

Each month, I outline the energy dynamic so you can be aware of it, and therefore feel empowered. The aim of this is to heighten your awareness and ride the tidal wave, especially at difficult times. At the same time, actively seeking solutions to minimise the conflicting energy is the best strategy to manage challenging times. Take advice from the below predictions or seek out a 1-on-1 Destiny Profiling session to pre-empt any major collision.

If any month calls for extra caution and calmness, March is the one! March is a total clash against the Yin Fire Rooster 丁酉 year. This means both the Heavenly Stems and the Earthly Branches in the monthly energy clash against the Rooster year. Therefore the energy interaction can be swift and harsh.

Due to the impulse of this potent wood energy, people are likely to get hot-headed or  get into an argument. Don't get caught up in these situations. Walk away or re-visit it another time when you are calm.  

Accidents are also likely to occur. Be careful with your ankles, wrists, fingers, neck, etc. and avoid any risky sports this month. 

If you have a Rooster or a Rabbit sign in your Destiny chart, you will feel more antagonism this March that potentially challenge your patience, willpower and mental alertness. The energy disturbance is likely to stir up any misalignment in your private or business relationships.  Going with the flow and adopting a positive attitude is the key!

This prediction effectively only counts as 1/8 of your monthly luck (given it is only based on your Day Master). Book a Destiny-reading session HERE to see what is in store specifically for you.

WOOD Element  

​The wood energy is pure and strong this month, so you will continue to feel supported, inspired and ready to conquer the world. However, there will be moments that feels you hit the wall. Competition can also be fierce at times.

Family will become the top priority for many Yin Wood people. March can also be a good month to undertake training of some sort and acquire new skills. Be self-reflective and drop the power-play game. 

FIRE Element
 

​The Yin Water contained in this month's energy will add clouds to Fire people’s sunny sky. March can be a dampening month on the spirit.

A new relationship could leave you a bit hot and cold, you finding it hard to read your new lover's mood. Drop your expectations and enjoy the moment; it will be a calm and meditative month for you. 

March is a great time to take up some study or hobbies. Seek new growth - you might find an unexpected gem! 

EARTH Element 

This month  will feel a bit up and down for Earth people. The Universe is asking you to raise your vibrations and goals. Earth people love their stability, however, so resistance can run high. Keep an open mind... this could be the start of an amazing transformation. If it is all getting too much, try to just ‘be’.

For a Yang Earth lady, your love life will be the highlight of the month.

METAL Element

​The  Wood energy represents wealth for Metal people. Therefore, March continues to be a fruitful month that brings solid financial gains. Do not be afraid to go out and pitch for new business, and show your creative expression and talent to the world. Plant seeds and watch them bloom when the timing is right.

Kick-start some new project or idea. The spring Wood energy is likely to give you new-found inspiration.

WATER Element 

​March is the month you can enjoy meeting plenty of helpful people and getting the support you need. If you are a Yang Water, there are some financial gains coming your way as well. It will be a super-productive month, and you will be unstoppable at work with your fresh ideas and insights. A great month to take some risks!

If you are a Yin Water, the heavenly stem is clashing against the yearly energy. Take this as an opportunity to make positive changes on your relationship front, regardless of whether that is at home or at work.

Flying Star Feng Shui MARCH Highlights

Most Auspicious Sector:  NORTHEAST 


The flying star 1 flies into the NE sector combining with the annual energy 4, brining extraordinary luck for writers, scholars and students.  Anything to do with writing or a literary venture will gain benefit from these stars. You are likely to receive recognition or promotion at work if your front entrance is located in this sector. 

Most Inauspicious Sectors are: SOUTH & EAST


Spend less time in the South & East sectors, or avoid them altogether, in March. The worst combination of 2 & 5 is located in the South sector this month. It brings misfortune, sickness and financial loss to the residents. The combination in the East is no better, being 8 & 5. The energy there is not particularly good for children either. They are likely to experience some sickness in the abdominal area. Place a Five-Element pagoda  or a Six-metal-coin  to minimise the impact in both sectors.  Avoid burning candles or any open flames in this area. 

Have an amazing March, everyone! 

Lots of love,

Date Selection – How to Maximize Your Chance of Success

Does luck exist? Or is it just a matter of being in the right place at the right time?

Years ago when Bill Gates was interviewed by Larry King on CNN, he was asked many questions which included how he had become so wildly successful in his new company Microsoft. The very first thing he said was (paraphrasing):

"I was in the right place, at the right time,

and luck had a lot to do with it ..."  -  Bill Gates

TIMING, in our destiny, holds a special place. Success involves an ability to be at the place at the right time.

Date Selection is a practice, using the Chinese almanac and Chinese astrology principles to identify a point in time where the energy is conducive enough to ignite an event so as to ensure the process goes smoothly and without major obstacles.

In both Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, selecting an auspicious date (or even hour) in which to commence an important activity is the first step towards making sure that a venture or endeavour gets off the ground with the best possible outcome for events such as a wedding, a civil union, opening a new business, moving to a new place, launching a book, making a public speech, etc. The art of date selection is selecting the most fertile ground in which to plant a seed so we can expect a good harvest in the near future.

The first thing to determine is the kind of activity we want to carry out. We then begin to pinpoint the most auspicious and synchronised energy that is compatible with your Personal Destiny chart. There are many factors to consider, but the key is to avoid any potential clash of energy flows. The technique involves aligning all the stars for you, so you will be at the right place at the right time!

Without going into too much detail, here are some examples of how Date Selection can not only ensure your chance of success but could also possibly save your life.

George W Bush was sworn in as President of the US on 20th January 2001. This is known as a “Month-breaker day” when it is not recommended to schedule anything significant. Furthermore, it was also a clash day between a Goat day and the Ox month. We all know what then happened during his first term: catastrophe, with the 9-11 attacks and the subsequent war in Iraq.

On 10th April 2010, a Polish Air Force Tu-154 crashed, killing all 96 people on board. It was the date when the Rabbit wood energy dominated the cosmos, clashing severely with the strong Metal energy. For those with the Rooster in their chart, the Rabbit-Rooster Clash would have further exacerbated the situation. Of the seven main Polish politicians who perished, the charts of six of them contained the Rabbit-Rooster Clash.

However, the Polish President’s twin brother avoided this tragedy because he decided not to travel on that date. This just goes to show that those who are born on the same day do not necessarily have the same fate or life. It can be small decisions you make that ultimately determine your fortune.

British singer and songwriter Adele was born on 5th May 1988. Her most useful element is water. It was during her Yin Water lucky cycle (age 20-24) that Adele’s debut album 19 was released in 2008 - a Rat year. This Rat formed the full Three Harmony Water combination with the elements in her birth chart, bringing her enormous success. 19 entered the UK chars at number one and sold 2.2 million copies worldwide within the first 18 months of release.

Activities that are suitable for benefitting from Date Selection:

  • Marriage / engagment
  • Moving to a new home
  • Moving into new business premises
  • Opening a store
  • Starting a new company (including online)
  • Signing a major contract (including buying a house)
  • Undergone surgery
  • Commencing on an IVF cycle
  • Starting home renovations
  • Putting a property on the market
  • Boosting your exam luck
  • Launch a product or campaign

To choose the most suitable date for you, all I need is the month you are looking at engaging in one of the above activities, along with your date of birth. By applying the same principles, you could also provide a year you are considering, in which I can select the best month.
