THE Rooster Year has barely begun, but already we have had major fires in the Philippines. Wednesday, February 1, 2017, saw the Cavite Fire that has damaged up to p15 billion worth of property, equipment and materials. Wednesday, February 8, 2017, saw 2 fires: one in Tondo, Manila, that displaced about 15,000 residents and also another in Barangay Catmon, Malabon.
Aa said that February 8, 2017 was the first Tiger Day in the Tiger Month. In the cycle of elements, Tiger is the birthplace of Fire.
Early on in our 2017 articles, we emphasized that this year carries the configuration for fire disasters, explosions, bullets. Chiara says the year is volatile because it is Yin Fire. Yin fire is like a candle, attractive, flickering and unstable, but left unattended, can burn down the field.
In the workshops we've attended under our mentor Feng Shui Grandmaster Raymond Lo, he illustrates how the infamous 9-11 occurred on a Yin Fire Day on the Yin Fire Rooster Month on a Yin Fire Snake Year.
So, how do we work with Feng Shui and the Flying Stars (energy influences that affect the directions in a room, house, property) to protect against fire and other negative energies?
We begin by calculating and identifying the kind of 'chi' that enter and circulate in our homes or properties. From this, we determine which areas invite prosperity and harmony and which areas need to weaken misfortune, loss, robbery, scandal, illness and conflict. We harness the positive and cure the negative.
Aside from knowing these directions based on the 'birthdate' of the house, we also need to be know where the Flying Stars are located in a given year and in a given month so we enhance or counteract these too.
People are affected by the Flying Star they face or are located in. So if their main door faces these directions, or if they are located in this sector, or they frequently occupy this part in a house or a building, they will be feeling the effects of the energy brought by that Flying Star.
Here are the negative directions for the year that must be cured, exhausted or subdued.
SOUTH this year hosts Misfortune, Trouble and Accidents. In most schools of Feng Shui, South is the direction related to fire.
SOUTHWEST is the direction of Robbery, Loss and Scandal.
NORTHWEST is the Illness Direction. It can bring about miscarriages, stomach and digestion ailments and also problems with real estate. Note that it is the sector occupied by fathers and heads of the family.
WEST is the Argument and Conflict Direction.
See us as soon as possible if you frequently occupy the South, Southwest, Northwest, or West, or if any of these are the directions you face when you exit a door. To cover all bases, check also the direction you face when you sleep or work.
We are located at #29 Sari-sari Section, Baguio City Market. Open from 4:00 to 6:30 pm Monday to Saturday.
