Feng Shui 2010 According To Joey Yap

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, January 22, 2010 | Published in


To read my latest post FENG SHUI 2011 ACCORDING TO JOEY YAP, click HERE.

Warning : This is a very long post! But it is full of very useful information about what 2010 holds for you. You may want to take your time to read this very slowly especially if you are into feng shui!

Believe it or not, I attended both Lillian Too and Joey Yap's feng shui talks this year!

Although Lillian's feng shui talk was held one week earlier than Joey's, I decided to blog about Joey Yap's talk first as it's a matter of urgency.

Why so urgent? Well, that's because Joey had revealed a set of dates for you to activate your wealth stars and there is one date that is as early as next Monday, January 25th! So I do not want you, my dear readers who did not attend his talk to miss out!

Aptly titled "Succeeding In Turbulent Times", this one day seminar was held at Plenary Hall, KL Convention Centre on January 16th from 10am - 5pm.

The hall was packed to the brim! Joey Yap must be getting more and more popular because when I compare the same hall where Lillian Too held her seminar a week earlier, hers was barely three quarters full!

This is my first time attending Joey Yap's seminar and I must say I enjoyed it! Although he's not as funny as Lillian Too, he still made me laugh a lot with his jokes which were frequently peppered with Cantonese idioms and proverbs.

Now what is different with Joey Yap's seminar compared to Lillian Too's is that Joey also teaches us face reading which was rather interesting!

It would be impossible for me to mention everything that Joey talked about in his whole day seminar so let me first summarize the good and bad directions for 2010, the year of the metal tiger.

All the directions will take effect starting from February 4th 2010, so make sure you remember them! Why Febuary 4th? Because in feng shui practice, we follow the Chinese Solar Calendar and not the Lunar Calendar.

According to the Lunar Calendar, the first day of the new year which is celebrated as the Chinese New Year is on February 14th 2010. But in the Solar Calandar, February 4th marks the starting of spring called Li Chun.

2010 Flying Stars Chart courtesy of wofs.com

The Five Yellow which is highly feared, will fly into the Southwest sector of your house this year, so do not do renovation or make a lot of noise here. Doing so will activate the Five Yellow which will bring illness, misfortune, loss of wealth and even death.

If your bedroom is located in the Southwest or if you spend a lot of time in the Southwest corner of your home, then you will have to move out of that bedroom or at least spend less time there. If this is not possible, you can neutralise the negative energy by using more metal items in the area.

(To know the exact direction and sector in your house, stand in the middle of your house, and use a compass. Do not rely on the sun setting or rising as your direction as it is not accurate).

The Grand Duke (or Tai Sui) resides in the Northeast this year. Facing the Grand Duke will bring you misfortune so do not face Northeast especially when you are negotiating or having a very important meeting. You are sure to lose!

However, facing Southwest with Grand Duke behind you gives you good support! According to Joey Yap, if you want to have the upper hand in any negotiation, make sure you are standing or sitting with the Grand Duke behind you (facing Southwest) and let your rival or competitor faces the Grand Duke (Northeast) instead! Now isn't that wicked! Haha!

The Three Killings which bring bodily harm and robberies, accidents and health problems, reside in the North this year. You are supposed to face the Three Killings head on, so it is good to face North and not sit with the Three Killings behind you (ie facing South).

Also, avoid any form of renovation or groundbreaking in both the Grand Duke sector and The Three Killings sector to prevent any misfortune.

Of course, to skeptics and disbelievers, these may all sound like bullshit. The good news is you don't have to believe any of these at all! Just test it out for yourself! Instead of following the advice given above, you purposely do the opposite!

Go do some major renovations at the Southwest (Five Yellow), face the Northeast (Grand Duke) in all your negotiations, and purposely sit with the North (Three Killings) behind you during your working hours. And then let me know the result! Here's a warning though - do these at your own risk! I shall not be held responsible if anything happens to you. Haha!

By the way, the Grand Duke is not a deity as most people assumed. It is just a name given to a star which changes location every year. Thus, we have the name Flying Stars in feng shui. In the olden days, people are not exposed to science so they cannot understand about flying stars. To make it easier for them to comprehend, the word Grand Duke was used so they could relate it as a deity that they need to respect. They are advised not to face the Grand Duke or suffer the consequences!

I found Flying Stars to be very scientific and it is a very accurate way of predicting and measuring the good and bad energy of the house or building you stay in. However, the interpretation of the outcome is not as easy and that requires skills and practice. That's why feng shui to me, is as much science as it is art!

Now take a look at the Flying Stars Chart for 2010 again.

Do you notice the numbers 6, 8 and 1 from East to West? These numbers represent good name, wealth and recognition respectively. These are good numbers meaning for this year, any house that faces East or West enjoys good feng shui. If your house does not face East or West, you can still activate these good stars by placing water elements at any of these sectors.

Joey Yap took this a step further by getting us to superimpose the above chart onto our faces. If you do that, you will notice the number 8 will be right at your nose area. According to Joey, anyone with big or prominent nose will be able to gain wealth this year.

The only difference is if you have a big nose (like Jackie Chan), you will gain direct wealth by working and saving lots of money. If your nose is tall and fleshy, you will gain indirect wealth by investing your money. If your nose is flat and not prominent, sorry, better luck next time! Haha!

All is not lost however. You can always activate the star number 8 by placing water elements in the middle sector of your home.

Next, let me tell you about what Joey Yap mentioned about the year 2010. To do this, you will need to know a bit of this year's Bazi Chart.

A Bazi Chart is made up of 4 pillars (Hour, Day, Month, Year) which contain 8 characters. The top row is known as Heavenly Stems, and the second row is Earthly Branches. Below these two rows are what we called Hidden Stems.

2010 Bazi Chart courtesy of Bazi Buzz

In Chinese metaphysics, the world is made up of five elements namely, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire. From this 2010 Bazi Chart, you will see that there is no water element - not even one! Since water is in short supply in 2010, anyone with water element in his or her personal Bazi Chart will be better off this year than those who don't!

This also means that water element industry like banking, shipping, transportation and tourism will do well this year.

To know your personal Bazi Chart, you can either download it from Joey Yap's website or Lillian Too's website. You just need to enter your date and time of birth and the rest will be done for you! Remember to keep your personal Bazi Chart under lock and key - you are not supposed to reveal your chart to anyone!

So what does 2010 holds for us Malaysians according to Joey Yap? Read here as reported by The Star.

Finally, here are the important dates and times you will need to activate the chi or energy. Make sure you note these down and remember to act on them!

First, to activate the God Of Wealth star on Chinese New Year Day on February 14th 2010. Usually, Chinese people will invite the God Of Wealth on this day. However, Joey Yap said you can do the same thing without resorting to prayers and firecrackers if you don't want to.

All you need to do is to make a lot of noise like holding a party or switch on the music at the correct sector of your home and at the right time! Why does this work? Because God Of Wealth is not really a deity you invite to your house, but it's actually a star that you need to activate!

So the Chinese way of prayers and firecrackers in fact helps to activate this star!

This can be done by activating Southeast 3 or Northwest 3 sectors at any of the following time

11pm (Feb 13th) - 1am (Feb 14th)
3am - 5am
5am - 7am

The best time is 3am - 5am which is the Tiger hours.

Refer to the compass chart below to know where exactly is Southeast 3 and Northwest 3.

Compass direction courtesy of HenryFong.com
For more information on compass directions and its sub-divisions, read here.

Next, to activate wealth stars for money luck, there are three suitable dates.

1. Jan 25th 2010 3pm - 4.59pm Southwest 1 or Southwest 2 (except if you have Snake in your Bazi chart).

If you have Goat or Ox in your Bazi chart, you cannot activate Southwest 1. Go for Southwest 2 instead.

Warning! Activating this is extremely powerful and dangerous! This date is only suitable for those of you who are very sure you got your direction correct. If you are not sure, do not activate. Doing this wrongly will result in extreme calamity for you! In fact, I do not dare to attempt this - too risky! I think it's better to play it safe and choose options 2 or 3 unless you have nothing to lose in which case, go ahead!

2. Mar 26th 2010 5am - 6.59am Northwest or East (except if you have Snake in your Bazi chart)

3. June 9th 2010 7pm - 8.59pm Northwest, East or Southeast (except with Monkey in your chart)

To activate Nobility Star (ie helpful people) there are three dates you can choose.

1. Apr 4th 2010 7pm - 8.59pm East 2 or Northwest 3 (except with Tiger in your chart)

2. July 5th 2010 5pm - 6.59pm Northwest 3 or East 2 (except with Dog in your chart)

3. May 20th 2010 3pm - 4.59pm East 2
Only activate this third option if have serious problems to be resolved and you need a breakthrough in your life, otherwise choose option 1 or 2.

To activate Peach Blossom (ie relationship luck)

Apr 20th 2010 3pm - 4.59pm North (except with Horse in your chart)

Whether you need to activate the wealth star, the nobility star or the peach blossom, you can do so by simply rearranging your furnitures, redecorate the area or create some kind of activity or movement. The point is to move the chi and trigger the stars concerned.

You can also place water features at these areas but it is better to place them outside the house rather than inside. The water does not have to be moving water. It can be still water in a large urn or container which is deep, wide and exposed. Yes, the water need to be exposed to collect the chi so do not cover the urn or container.

By the way, you can even put in some fishes to eat up mosquitoes larvae if you do not want to be fined for breeding aedes mosquitoes. Either that, or change the water often.

Now if you are unlucky enough to have all those animals (highlighted in red) in your Bazi chart and therefore, cannot activate the stars as recommended, then sorry to say you would need to pay Joey Yap to help you choose other suitable dates! Haha!

  29. foongpc said...

    SK, sorry for finding it difficult to understand this. Yeah, maybe you should read up some basic feng shui books first. Haha!

    Best day to start work? I will blog about that in my Lillian Too post cos Joey did not mention about it this time.

    Yes, you imagined right. I took a compass and walked around my house, haha!

    Yes, your personal Bazi is more specific for you but then what I mentioned here can be applied by all.

    I don't think I am an expert in feng shui, I just listen and read about them. So I would not dare to teach you anything! : )

    Haha, we can meet up no problem, just email me : )

    January 22, 2010 at 2:10 PM
  30. foongpc said...

    cloudia, oh you buy Lillian Too's books? Didn't know you are into feng shui as well! Looks like Lillian has readers from all over the world and as far as Hawaii!

    Foong, a most informative post. Thank you so much for sharing esp the activation dates for the various elements.

    However, considering the sensitivity of the need for accuracy, it could be best not to do the activation, IMO.

    January 22, 2010 at 6:06 PM
  38. HappySurfer said...

    Foong, maybe a typo here. You wrote:

    You are supposed to face the Three Killings head on, so it is good to face North and not sit with the Three Killings behind you (ie facing South).

    and then,

    Go do some major renovations at the Southwest (Five Yellow), and purposely face the North (Three Killings) during your working hours. Did you mean to say "purposely NOT face the North (Three Killings)....?

    or am I mistaken? Oops!

    January 22, 2010 at 6:13 PM
  39. HappySurfer said...

    Foong, once again, a great post (graphics, links and all).

    Looking forward to the write-up on Lilian Too's session.

    Thanks again.

    happysurfer, you are welcome. You can do the activation for all except the SouthWest sector on Jan 25th if you are not sure of the directions. This is the only one that is risky, the others are OK.

  56. RoseBelle said...

    I think it's also important to know that in order for feng shui to work most effectively, you need to delve into your own personalized horoscope based on your birthdate to get an accurate reading AND a good compass to know the directions in your house. What we get on the internet and even seminars are generalized readings for 2010. For the skeptics, I would only say, if you can improve your wealth by simply rearranging your desk to a different direction, why not? A few years ago, I kept getting sick with a really bad cough that came with it. I stumbled upon a web page that talked about feng shui and I was fascinated about the sickness star and how to suppress it. I followed the tip and placed a crystal wu lou in a particular direction of my house. Let's just say, I haven't gotten sick like I did before I placed the crystal. I am a true believer that feng shui and karma go hand in hand. I forgot which feng shui master talked about this but I do remember the core lesson and that is if you accumulated a lot of bad karmic deeds, no matter how expertly you feng shuied your house, you will not escape the calamity which is why feng shui does not work for everyone.

    Great post!

    I would rather pay a Fengshui master for a personal assessment because each individual's ba ji is different, so will have a different destiny.

    rose belle, yes what you get at seminars are generalised advice, for accurate feng shui you do need to analyze your personal bazi.

    I believe in karma too : )

    merryn, first time you and hubby reading blog together? haha! So your hubby interested in feng shui is it?

    Why you don't dare to activate? Go ahead and activate lah, just don't activate the one on Jan 25th cos that one is too risky if you don't get your direction correct. For others, no risk so go and activate at least for wealth.

    OK, maybe don't activate the peach blossom stars since you are already married : )

    I live in california, United States. I was wondering what time zone you were referring to when talking about activiting those stars? What times would those correspond to my time zone? Just the difference?

    I hope you can respond to this.
    Thank you.

  91. foongpc said...

    anonymous, sorry I never thought of this before! The time Joey Yap gave us refers to Malaysian time zone. I'm not sure what time you need to activate in the USA. Maybe you can ask Joey on his website or Facebook : )

    January 25, 2010 at 12:31 PM
  92. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, Joey Yap is getting more and more popular compared to Lillian Too judging by the number or people attending their talks.

    Yes, use a compass for accurate directions and yes, you may want to carry your compass around with you : )

    Yes, better not make noise at the Southwest area to prevent activating the 5 Yellow, one of the most deadliest of all the afflictions.

    January 25, 2010 at 12:35 PM
  93. foongpc said...

    merryn, haha if your hubby activate the peach blossom, he gets himself a second wife lah : )

    Yes, go activate at all those dates mentioned except for Mon 25th Jan which is too risky : )

    I think I'll have to re-read this post again later, thanks for sharing all these foong. We reside in an apartment unit so it's hard to get on with these orientations but I will see what works. We are not chinese but we do considere basic feng shui most esp when we design.

    Hi foongpc,

    I stumbled upon your blg quite by accident as I was searching through Joey Yap's infos on 2010 (I saw his Feng Shui talk with Chui Ling on Astro) Now is the the part that always get me confuse. You mention about sitting facing the direction but yet you said our back should be the one facing. Let's take an example. My personal wealth sector is in SW but my bedroom is in the NW sector. So, does that mean I should moved my bed 'Chong Tau' facing SW and sleep with my head pointing that direction?

    It's like the more I read the more confuse I get on this FengShui. Too baffling! Hope you can bring some light to this matter.

    Hi FirePhoenix,

    Fengshui is applied to living space as well as your own. There's the Ba Zi of the Current Year and the Ba Zi based on your birthdate.

    Think of it as Birthdate. By analyzing the Current Year's Birthdate, you get to know what kind of personality and characteristics that year will have. Same things for your own Ba Zi. Now these two are TIME-related.

    There's also the SPACE-related fengshui, like your house. This is where the Flying Star Fengshui is used.

    I always think of Fengshui as the Science of Time and Space governed by the 5 Elements. It pays to understand the 5 Elements so that you dont spend a fortune on the annual cures, enhancers, etc.

    Now back to your question. I will use an example, let's say I am a West Group person and my BEST DIRECTIONS according to the KUA NUMBER which is derived from my Birthdate, are: NE / W / SW / NW.

    Assuming NE is my PERSONAL Wealth direction, I should face it wherever I sit/stand/squat etc. so things, anything happen in my favor.

    However, in 2010, the Flying Star Fengshui sez that facing NE is totally BAD because Mr Grand Duke Jupiter is sitting/hovering/controlling the NE area.

    What am I to do?

    I just have to STOP FACING THAT DIRECTION FOR THIS YEAR ONLY. This year means, the whole Tiger year, until the other animal year starts.

    So if I cant sit FACING NE, that means I gotta sit facing SW which is the direct opposite of NE. If I sit facing SW, that could only mean my back is facing Mr Grand Duke Jupiter (also called sitting but I think it should be termed rear-ending hahahahaha). So I'm safe right?

    Next, I gotta check if SW is actually a GOOD direction for me.

    Let's see: NE-W-SW-NW.

    Yep, it's my third best direction. So I can in fact sit facing SW. If it's not, just find the next best direction from the list of 4 directions given. Use your compass to to get the exact directions.

    Another scenario. Let's say right across my SW-direction, there's a cupid statue with his arrow pointing right at me. Bad fengshui as it is sending me the Killing Energy. What am I to do next? Again, I will have to find the next best directions.

    So what if you are in an office, and your office is occupying the whole of the NE area in 2010? Someone gotta put fengshuisified the office area but that's not gonna be you or me-it depends on the management whether they are fengshui-conscious or not. But use this knowledge to gauge and analyze the outcome of how the business turn out for that year. If it is a lively office with lots of noise, see how many major issues will pop-up. Especially good to note if there's a sudden renovation carried out throughout 2010. Hahaha...

    OK now moving on, let's say in that whole office, you happened to be placed at the NE-corner of the entire office. What to do, what to do? Simple really, follow the same tips - no noise, groundbreaking, knocing, and know the elements that reside in the NE this year so you can 'pacify' the area**. And again, be seated while facing my best directions other than NE because NE is afflicted.

    ** The importance of knowing elements:- Let's say Area X is Wood based on the Flying Star Fengshui for THAT HOUSE/UNIT/BUILDING. And Area X is VISITED by a star that has the element FIRE and let's just say (again) that this Fire Star is terrible.

    Wood creates Fire (logic?)

    Now how to control FIRE?

    Use W_T_R

    Therefore you must put Water element in Area X.

    Hope dat helps.

    Thank you so much for providing a detailed review of Joey's seminar. I attended 2-3 previous ones and enjoyed it. I couldn't attend this year and your detailed summary has been really helpful.

    I wish I came across it earlier, but it's not too late to make good use of the activation dates.

    I was thinking since Tim is available.. maybe he could be an assistant Coach Outlet
    helping with the quarterbacks and offensive line.. can you imagine coming to Florida and having the best college player being your Coach Madison
    .. hanging out with you everyday -- I don't think we have to worry about the prospects still coming to Florida to play football; but to be honest.. Coach Meyer getting his health 'fixed' is the most important.. want to have him around for many years.. even if he's not on the sideline. I've been a Gator fan for 30+ years and have gone through the ups and downs of Coach Luggage
    .. Dickey; Pell; Hall; Spurrier and now the best coach anyone could ask for... sorry for rambling.. just a hot topic for me -- hope our Gators will win this one for 'the Gipper' - Coach Hamptons

    Does all these renovatiion staffs applicable, if you are buying over a pre-occupied house, do some renovation, then only move in to stay? If yes, what needed to be done or avoid, if you really need to renovate at those areas under The Five Yellow, The Grand Duke & The Three Killings, before you can move in for practical reasons? Any difference, if renovation carried out before property title got transferred? How do we know whether the former owner did any renovation in these sectors during 2010? If they did, is it going to affect the new occupants?

    I'm confused regarding bed position. Currently, when I lie down on my bed, the head is pointing to NE, and the legs are pointing to SW. Does this mean I'm facing the Tai Sui( Grand Duke)

    I've got no other position to face my bed due to me sharing rooms. I'd like to know the remedies if I'm really facing Tai Sui (Grand Duke)
