Trinidad: The absence of fire


LAST night, I saw the Facebook post of a client friend lamenting that a good friend of hers got very depressed, lost the will to live, and then committed suicide.

A few weeks before that our dear doctor client also remarked that she had come across depressed patients and there have been a marked increase in suicides too.

It is expected.

Last October 8, the month transited into the Dog month, which is known in Feng Shui Circles as the grave of fire.

The previous month, the Rooster, was the setting sun, the peak of the metal element, and marked the full decline of the element of fire.

Now there is no fire.

Fire is warmth, heat, and relates to happiness, optimism, excitement. Fire is inspiration, and hope, and finding a reason to keep going on.

The absence of fire translates into a dampened mood. People are more anxious and worried about the future. It is easier to get overwhelmed, depressed. And for some people whose charts are affected, this absence of fire during this period, can drive them to take their own lives.

In the body, fire is the heart, the eyes. It is what stimulates digestion. The absence of fire creates heart problems, so there is an increase in attacks, strokes and other conditions pertaining to the heart.

Sight is affected. Vision can deteriorate. There are more skin problems. Also, the stomach. There is more weight gain. The brain is also affected.

Keep in mind that this year of the Pig is a water year. There is a surfeit of the water element.

Water affects the kidneys, the reproductive system, and so, as our mentor, internationally respected Grandmaster Raymond Lo predicted, there are a lot of diseases concerning the blood, circulation and a rise in HIV cases.

Take heart if you feel that you or someone in your life is being affected by this absence of fire.

Schedule an appointment with us to know the elements present in your chart and which ones can control the water, provide the fire, and if other elements are needed as well for keeping healthy mentally, emotionally, physically.

With the element of fire gone, see us ASAP if you or your loved ones show signs of depression and are having suicidal thoughts. We will help to provide the will to carry on.

We are at #29 Sari-sari Section, Baguio City Market, open from 4:30 to 6:30 from Monday to Saturday.
