Gods and Killings in the Year of the Metal Ox 2021.

You would have had a peek at the original chart on the front pages of the Chinese Almanac. However, they are very technical terms and transcripted in Chinese, something many of us may not fully understand.

This is the English version and a quick glance will offer you the weightage of auspicious stars against the unfavourable stars for each zodiac. As a guide, the red stars are auspicious while the black ones are unfavourable.

The annual forecast has various methods of calculation and the allocation of certain stars may differ amongst the sources. However, the main stars remain intact for most.

The most important consideration goes into the interpretation of these stars and the recommendations of how we make use of them in our favour.

Just like the Feng Shui of a space, a person with a zodiac with the most

superlative stars and do nothing, is not going to get anything out of it. Therein lies the difference of what we do with these stars as there are a handful which are in middle ground. They can be viewed as positive by some consultants and negative by others. Whatever their views, the important factor is knowing the essence of the stars matching to current and prevailing conditions.

As an example, Salty Pool in the Horse this year is seen by most to be a star of flirtations and extra marital affairs but there maintains a handful of practitioners who see it as a Peach Blossom star in positive light, that Salty Pool can be a relationship star.

It's out. The Chinese Almanac for the Year of the Ox that is.

The first six pages will be all that is needed for anyone to tell what lies ahead in the coming year. While some may argue that it may be too early to start preparing, two things stand out this year that say we will need a lot more information to handle what's to come when 2021 turns the corner.

First, consider that the preceding years of the Ox has been anything but exciting or promising. In fact, if you look back at the past Ox years, they have been dominantly lethargic in terms of results.

Next, everything, including the forecasting in Feng Shui and evrything metaphysics, have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It has become more critical than ever to at least be indicative of what is to come so that we are all prepared with ceratin level of informed choices.

The page that contains the vital knowledge is found in this page that reflects the zodiac signs corresponding with the energies attached to each. The important factor to consider is that this does not just touch on a person's year of birth. The effects of these energies, also known as the annual 'God and Killings' (流年神煞)can correspondingly bring about the same effects if that zodiac is found in the month, day or hour of birth. The resultant affects you in different ways of life. To find out if you have different zodiac representation in your personal chart, plot it in https://www.hofs.sg/bazi-calculator.

At a glance, the following is a broad summary of what is to be expected. More in depth analysis will come as we progress along.

Rat - Least resistance accompanied with Noblemen.

Ox - Psychological barrier to oneself, must overcome one's self doubts.

Tiger - Looking great but great things happen only when you work on them.

Rabbit - No positive stars but can turn obstacles into opportunities.

Dragon - Great for ladies, not for the men.

Snake - Cooperation is highlight for you but results remain contradicting.

Rooster - Control in your hands but insecurity affects you easily.

Dog - Lucky year but will be slandered and accused by jealous people.

Pig - As long as you keep moving, your mind will work in your favour.

A client's question prompted this article.

Suzanne is 40 this year, married for 11 years, have a girl aged 8 and a boy aged 3. Suzanne is a media consultant and widely read. Husband, 2 years her senior is a banking professional and all have been well ... until recently. Suzanne started reading about life analysis subjects and amongst her research, the Peach Blossom star(桃花)bothers her because she was told that her husband's BaZi chart has a composition of 38% of such a star and therefore he is, more likely than not, to have extra marital affairs.

I advised Suzanne that it was a sweeping statement on the part of the advice she was given and an absolutely unfair presumption of her husband.

To start with, The Peach Blossom star is a star that attracts interactions and relationships, good and the unfavourable. It is a popularity star but cannot be viewed as a blank cheque that atrracts the opposite sex. Far from it. A person with such energies in them are endowed with good people's skills in areas of communications and decorum and that is exactly what make them so attractive. It would be wrong to assume that a person with an abundance of such a star (say more than 20% in their BaZi charts) that they will go wayward in their liaisons with others. I have often advise clients that everyone needs this star even if one is working with the dead because it promotes congeniality and would certainly make things easier for both sides.

There exists three major categories of the Peach Blossom star and they appear in the annual 'Gods and Killings' (神煞)forecasting methods of advice for the coming year touching on the different zodiac a person is classified under.

First, there is the Hong Luan (红鸾)which ranks hign in purity, sentiments and emotions. Should one be 'visited' by this star during the year, it bodes well for your relationships which will lead to a long term meaningful bond and even a marriage for singles. Like any others, it can also lead to abuse. It can be a flirtatious star of which a person can use it to attract others for inducements of business, deals and an outing for fun.

Next comes the Sky Happiness (天喜), one which gathers people around and calls for every celebration. This is essentially a powerful source of happiness and laughter which attracts other to participate. People who has this or are touched upon by this star are exceptionally articulate and creative in fun and activities. It cuts across all ages, sex and cultures, and is both exuberant and demonstrative.

This brings us to the subject matter and the effervescent Xian-Chi star (咸池)literally translated as the Salty Pool star. This is the one star which is often accused as the culprit that leads others to illicit relationships. Conversely, one cannot assume that whoever is 'struck' by this star will go on a wild sex rampage. A catalyst, an instigation or an influence does not necessarily lead to an intended result or consequence bacause much depends on his or her intention, conditions, ability and motivation for doing so.

Like many other stars, it makes its rounds annually and will touch upon a certain zodiac a person is born with. In 2021 Year of the Yin Metal Ox, this star touches upon those born with the Horse in the year or the day. To see if you are affected, check out your BaZi chart https://www.hofs.sg/bazi-calculator.

The legend of the Salty Pool star began with the Queen Mother of the West who travelled on board the chariot riding on purple clouds. A flock of celestial green birds will pave the way and she was served with an entourage of fairies. It was believed that these maidens are the most beautiful female forms and would take their leisurely baths in pools surrounded by mulberry trees. This eventually led to its epitome of all Peach Blossom stars. This star is most active when met with the element water.

The Salty Pool star works its way innocently enough as it meanders with people of similar situations, conditions and intentions. When it strikes someone, it works its way with people familiar to themselves. Much like a spell, it takes time for people to wake up from this fantasy before they sink deeper into troubles. The unfortunate thing is, some are not strong enough to fight its temptations. The forecast of each year is a serving of caution for those affected and one should plan and avoid conditions where such possibilities can take place.

The good news for Suzanne is that most will be able to resist the troubles the Peach Blossom stars bring. It is no one's fault to be attractive in looks or by character. In fact, one should use them to maximum effect for better results in life.
