GENERAL OUTLOOK OF THE YEAR
This is a year of balanced elements, which means we can expect a relatively stable year. Relationships between countries will stabilize and we shall see some improvements that lead to improved business and enhanced wealth.
Unfortunately, the year lacks the Lap Chun, as Chinese New Year falls on 5th February, which is a day shy of the Lap Chun which falls on 4th February. As such, while there is good potential for improved money luck, the growth rate of many industries will continue to be slow as we need Lap Chun energy to grow.
While 3 of the year pillars are in harmony, the year pillar in the Paht Chee chart is not harmonious, where we have Yin Earth sitting on top of Yin Water. This indicates increased possibilities for earthquakes and water-related disasters such as tsunamis. For those who live in earthquake-prone regions, you should display Ksitigarbha’s Staff in your living room. If you live next to the sea or a large body of Water, you should protect your home by displaying the Mazu “Goddess of The Seas” Plaque within your home with the plaque facing the Water.
END OF A CYCLE, BEGINNING OF A NEW ONE
2019 is also the last year of a 60-year cycle, which means that we should take steps to initiate new strategies, or diversify into new industries in preparation for the start of the new cycle of in 2020 the year of the Metal Rat.
For those with great ambitions, with the right amount of determination, great heights of success can be achieved. There will be no shortage of lucrative opportunities.
This also means that for those thinking of changing jobs, best months to do so are in the first half of the year – from February till July.
Both direct and indirect wealth energy is strong this year, with wealth coming from new innovations and strategies leading the pack, more so than from tried and tested methods. Enhance business chi in your office by displaying the Mansion of White Dzambhala or with a Pair of Carp in the center section of your office.
WEALTH FROM THE YOUNGER GENERATION
Wealth is seen to come from the younger generation, which will continue to see the rise of the Digital Age. Enhanced Artificial Intelligence will lead the way with non-traditional methods of marketing and selling things. We are sure to see increased use of cyber currency and online payment methods, as well as plenty of growth in online shopping, as IT industry is representative of Fire energy, which is the element that represents wealth luck this year. Keep your home well-lit and display a Pair of Golden Boar in the Northwest to engage the support of the year, which will help you to actualize success and jumpstart the flow of wealth luck.
This is not a year to be lazy or to be contented with your achievements, as Water in the chart of the year brings you the needed resources for excellent growth.
This year benefits those born in the year of the Dragon, Snake, Rooster, Dog, Boar, Rat, Ox, and Rabbit as you have enough positive influences in the year that help you succeed.
The first half of the year is better for starting new ventures, and to invest in new sources of income; while the second half of the year is better for realizing success and taking profits.
The year also indicates some disagreements and disharmony between the older generations and the youth. Everyone should carry the Peace & Harmony Amulet and should place a cluster of Red Apples in the South sector of their living rooms.
GETTING THE BEST FROM THE FLYING STAR CHART
The new chart takes effect from Feb 4th 2019. To maximize your luck for the year, it is vital to update the Feng Shui of your home. All you need to do is to correct, subdue and enhance all 8 corners of your home, as by doing so will reduce or negate the effects of afflictions and enhance good luck within your home, thus benefitting everyone.
When reading each forecast, bear in mind that the stars affect you if any one of the following scenarios apply to you:
- Your entrance is facing that direction (e.g. the #2 star affects you if your house is facing Northeast).
- Your entrance is located in the sector (e.g. the #7 star affects you if your entrance is located in the Southeast sector, even if it is facing a different direction)
- Your bedroom is located in the sector
- The star visits your animal palace. For example, if you are Sheep or Monkey, then the misfortune #5 in the Southwest (Sheep and Monkey location) brings you misfortune and bad luck.
