In this issue, we are going to look at another singer who has finally made it with a hit single after having recorded 8 albums which lacked big success. Luis Alfonso Rodríguez López-Cepero (born April 15, 1978), known by his stage name Luis Fonsi, is a Puerto Rican singer, songwriter and actor, is now known for the hit song “Despacito”. Here is his Paht Chee chart below, where we will ignore his hour pillar, as that information is not known.
Although, Paht Chee readings are based on the Four Pillars, nevertheless, we are able to achieve around 85 % accuracy by comparing the events of his life to what we are able to read of his chart. Of course, the first step is to look at his basket of elements, and for his case, we have discovered that his chart is totally missing Metal, with 3 units of Earth and 3 units of Fire. There are also hidden elements of 1 Wood, 1 Fire and 1 Water. Therefore we know for certain that Metal would be the critical element in unlocking his heaven luck. Next, we look at his luck pillars, and here we see that in luck pillar 37 and 47 is where Metal appears in his life. We also know that since his self element is Yin Fire, and Wood only appears as a hidden element, it is most likely that his self element of Yin Fire would be deemed weak. As such, Earth would be the element considered most unfortunate for him. And here in his luck pillars, we find Yin Earth in luck pillar 27.
If you notice, there are 8 luck pillars that are shown, and therefore what is seen in the first 2 luck pillars would affect his year pillar the most. But that would also be his childhood period. The second two luck pillars – 27 and 37 – would affect his month pillar the most, and this is where we look at the animal sign of the relevant luck pillars. In his case, the Sheep governs luck pillar 27, and therefore forms a side clash with the Dragon in his month pillar. Therefore we know that his luck would not be very good in the period age 27 – 36, and indeed, this is the period when he recorded 8 albums which did not do very well and only made it to the 92nd position on the Billboard Latin tracks.
So, now we also look at what kind of hidden stars he possesses. He has two very excellent stars and that would be the Good Fortune Star, indicated by the Dragon. As so, during luck pillar 27 when we have the Sheep affecting the Dragon, he lost the effects of this lucky star. The other star he has is the Talent Star (shown as his day pillar – Yin Fire / Yin Earth Sheep). Of course, this simply means that he has the inborn talent, where not many singers have this star.
So luck pillar 37 is Yang Metal in the Heavenly Stem, and Yang Metal Monkey in the Earthly Branch brings him plenty of good luck. Both Metal is excellent for him and the Monkey is the ally of the Dragon in his Month pillar, thus unlocking and enhancing the effects of his Good Fortune Star. So it is no surprise that on January 13th 2017 (Year of the Monkey and Month of the Ox), Universal Music Latin released “Despacito”, which topped the charts of 45 countries and reached the top 10 of 9 other countries. It became the first song primarily in Spanish to top the Billboard Hot 100 since “Macarena” (Bayside Boys Mix) in 1996.
The official video for “Despacito” on YouTube received its one billionth view on April 20th 2017 after 97 days, becoming the second-fastest video on the site to reach the milestone behind Adele’s “Hello”. It received its two billionth view on June 16th after 154 days, making it the fastest video on the site to reach the milestone. With its 3.3 million certified sales plus track-equivalent streams, “Despacito” is one of the best-selling Latin singles in the United States.
The Month pillar of the Ox was also very good for him, as the Ox is the animal that represents the Celestial Protector Star (Wealth and Success Star) for those born in the Year of the Horse. 2009, the Year of the Ox, was also the year when he won the Latin Grammy Award and also performed in the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, honouring President Barack Obama.
So what can we say about his future and his music career? It certainly appears that his luck has ripened and he will continue to do well for the next 17 years till he reaches age 56.
