2010 has been an eventful year, I wonder is it because Tiger being the fiercest animal out of the 12 Zodiac animals that caused everything to swing one end to the other? First we witnessed our global economy was like taking roller-coast ride, from high to low and low bounced back to high, I bet the ride must be a thrilling experience for some of you out there!
For the last 11 months, we had very unusual phenomenons too! We had heavy storms during our summer period which was supposed to be hottest months yet we experienced the wettest months. On top of that, the shocking news must be the floodings in Orchard road, a place that we would at least think of. And due to the heavy downpours, alot of basement carparks in many parts of Singapore were turned into huge pool of waters.
Apart from the heavy downpours, the strong winds also uprooted alot of trees in our history. So was it liu nian 流年, Metal on top sitting on Wood that caused so many trees to uproot? If you have read my last year forecast, you might have noticed my illustration - imagine an axe chopping a tree. On this note, can you still recall the Downtown East and Bukit Panjang incident, where young men were slashed? Again, Metal Geng (Metal weapon) attacking on Wood Mao (Bone)!
Having said that, I also mentioned that possible conflict and fights during the year of Tiger. At this point of writing, the tensions between North and South Korea has yet to ease. Let's pray hard that the tensions will not escalate into something unpleasant!
Other events that took place during the last 11 months are:
Uncertainties in US economy and Euro Debt Crisis
Floods and landslides in China
Strong Earthquarke in New Zealand
Tragedy struck HK tourists in Philippine
Japan experienced the hottest months
Election in Australia and Myanmar.
Next year 2011, is a Rabbit year.
Rabbit is known to be very gentle animal except this gentle animal is well known for producing a lot of offsprings, so will this Metal rabbit brings us more babies in 2011 and boost our birth rate?
So what is in store for 2011? To begin, let's start with the first day of Lunar New Year.
The first day of Lunar New Year falls on 3 Feb 2011 but please take note our cute little rabbit is still not ready to take over till second day of Chinese New year. Thus, year of rabbit will only officially take over on 4 Feb 2011 at 12.32pm. Therefore, babies born on the first day of lunar new year is still a baby Tiger.
2011 is Xin Mao Nian 辛卯年, which is known as Metal Rabbit year or Golden Rabbit year. The Heavenly Stem which is represented by Xin 辛(Metal) is sitting on top of Earthly Branches Mao 卯 (Wood), this terminology of Metal sitting on wood is similiar to 2010 Geng 庚 (Metal) Yin 寅 (Wood) except that 2011 is Yin Metal and Yin Wood while 2010 is Yang Metal and Yang Wood.
In Bazi books, Xin 辛 metal is described as fine jewellery. But I bet to differ, now let's imagine Xin 辛 metal as a pair of scissor while Mao 卯 wood as grasses. If you allow me to let my imagination run wild, what you see next is grasses are growing too fast and they become too long (tall), so question is : what would you do? Trim it of course! So will this trimming lead to correction? Maybe after this trimming, you will be able to find some jewels among the grasses!
Using Flying Stars for next year, we will see Flying Star 7 resides at central palace while wealth star 8 is located at North-west sector. For those who wish to have more wealth luck, you may want to activate your North-west sector!
Do pay special attention to East and South sector, as bad energy stars are located there. Ideally, one should not activate the bad energy stars in those sectors. You can consider to place some metal objects to reduce the bad energy effects.
Romance star is located at South-west sector, this is a sign that more matured women may tie the knots next year. As for people who are born in year of Tiger, Horse and Dog, you may find romance luck in 2011.
The four Zodiac animals that are deemed to have offended Tai Sui 太岁 are as follows: Rat, Rabbit, Horse and Rooster.
San sha wei 三煞位 is located at West, so ideally one should avoid having your back facing west. For those Zodiac animals who have deemed to be offended Tai Sui next year, you should avoid facing (looking) East and your back facing west at all costs!
To wrap 2011 forecast, I would like to wish everybody a Happy New Year, may this new year brings you good health, happiness and prosperity!
