Feng Shui 2016 According To Joey Yap (Part 3)

Posted by : foongpc | Tuesday, January 26, 2016 | Published in


Continued from Part 2

So now that we know the auspicious and inauspicious sectors for 2016, it's time to do something first about the inauspicious sectors.

For most feng shui masters, the advice is to place cures in the afflicted sectors. However, Joey Yap does it a bit differently. He does not encourage placement of objects except water. Instead, he suggested that we activate four auspicious stars as a back-up immunity in the event we accidentally trigger the bad stars in the afflicted sectors.

The four auspicious stars are the Dragon Virtue, the Moon, the Sun and the Fortune Virtue.

Out of these four stars, the Dragon Virtue is the most important as it is a very effective immunity even if you trigger the Grand Duke and the Three Killings. Below is the location of each star and the date and time you should activate them.

Dragon Virtue
Location : East 2
Date and Time : 18 March 2016, 6.30am  or  26 April 2016, 7.30am

Location : West 2
Date and Time : 1 March 2016, 7.30pm  or  25 June 2016, 11.30am

Location : North West 3
Date and Time : 21 April 2016, 7.30pm  or  9 May 2016, 3.30pm

Fortune Virtue
Location : South East 3
Date and Time : 6 February 2016, 6.30am  or  1 March 2016, 1.30pm

Note that the date and time stated above are the local time in whichever country you are staying.

How do we activate these auspicious sectors? There are many ways, amongst them, you can rearrange your furniture, hang a painting on the wall or do some minor refurbishment. Or you can simply place a water feature.

Towards the end of the seminar, Joey Yap revealed a list of date and time to activate for wealth, health, relationship and more. Here is the complete list. He added that you will actually see results within 2 weeks to a month after activation.

3 dates to choose from...

1. 27 January 2016, 6.30am - South West 3 (Clash : Tiger)

2. 24 February 2016, 6.30am - South East 3 (Clash : Horse)

3. 26 April 2016, 6.30am - East 2 (Clash : Monkey)

*Note : Clash means if you have that animal sign in your Bazi Chart, then that particular date is not beneficial for you. For example, if you have a Tiger in your Bazi Chart, then the first date (27 January 2016) is not suitable for you. Choose another date instead. You can choose just one date to activate or you can activate on all three dates as long as none of the animal sign clashes with you.

2 dates to choose from ...

1. 1 March 2016, 11.30am - South (Clash : Rat)

2. 5 April 2016, 11.30am - South (Clash : Pig)

3 dates to choose from ...

1. 29 January 2016, 3.30pm - North 2 (Clash : Dragon)

2. 26 April 2016, 9.30am - West 2 (Clash : Monkey)

3. 18 February 2016, 7.30am - South (Clash : Rat)

*Note : During the negotiation, sit with your back facing the direction given. For example, if you are making a deal on 29 January 2016, sit with your back facing North 2, and let the other person sit opposite.

**Note : The third date 18 February 2016 is most suitable for land and property related deal.

2 dates to choose from ...

1. 27 March 2016, 6.30am - South East 3 (Clash : Tiger)

2. 5 April 2016, 7.30pm - West 2 (Clash : Pig)

*Note : Sit with your back facing the direction given. For example, to win an argument on 27 March 2016, sit with your back facing South East 3, and let the person you are arguing with sit opposite, i.e. in the North West. Alternatively, you can also activate the South East 3 sector in your home with water, then only meet the person later in the day.

2 dates to choose from ...

1. 24 February 2016, 5.30pm - South  (Clash : Horse)

2. 23 April 2016, 9.30pmWest (Clash : Snake)

*Note : The clash here refers to the animal sign in the other person's Bazi Chart, not yours! So make sure you check his or her Bazi Chart beforehand. To activate, you need to face the direction given, and the other person face the opposite. For example, to activate on 24 February 2016, you need to face South and your intended target faces you ie. North. And he or she must not have a Horse in his/her Bazi Chart for it to work.

3 dates to choose from ...

1. 6 February 2016, 9.30am - West  (Clash : Rat)

2. 1 March 2016, 9.30am - South  (Clash : Rat)

3. 5 April 2016, 9.30am - South  (Clash : Pig)

2 dates to choose from ...

1. 15 March 2016, 5.30pm - West 2  (Clash : Tiger)

2. 30 April 2016, 7.30am - South East 3  (Clash : Rat)


12 April 2016, 9.30am - South  (Clash : Horse)

*Note : Sit facing North and with back to the South. You can make a wish for yourself or your immediate family members.

Besides the good dates and times for activation, Joey Yap also warned about 2 bad days to avoid doing anything important like moving house, starting a business, getting married or undergoing surgery. The two bad dates are as follows ...

1. 5 September 2016, 3.30pm - South West  (Clash : Moneky)
This is a 'double funeral' day which must never be used for burial. The negative effect of using this day for burial is that 'if one is buried, another will soon follow'.

2. 9 March 2016, 9.30am  (Clash : Monkey)
This is the date and time of a Solar Eclipse, which is deemed very inauspicious in both Chinese and Western astrology. Joey Yap warned that being exposed to the eclipse for 1 minute is equivalent to 1 year of bad luck, 2 minutes equals to 2 years of bad luck and so on. Best to stay indoors till the eclipse is over!

Chinese New Year is coming soon and most Chinese people will invite the God Of Wealth to their homes. In actual fact, what they are really doing is activating the Wealth Star. You can do the same without the firecrackers and the prayer rituals associated with it. All you need to do is to activate these three sectors - East, South West and North West on 8 February 2016 at 1.30am or 3am.

You can choose to activate just one sector or all three - it's all up to you.

This is for those who plan to start work on an auspicious day after the Chinese New Year holidays. Mainly for business owners, not so important for those working for others.

1. 12 February 2016, 6.30am (Clash : Horse)

2. 15 February 2016, 11.30am (Clash : Rooster)

3. 16 February 2016, 9.30am (Clash : Dog)

4. 19 February 2016, 6.30am (Clash : Ox)

In Part 4 (final part), I shall be sharing about Qi Men Dun Jia and how you can use it to increase your chances of success in getting what you want. Stay tuned :)

Feng Shui 2016 According To Joey Yap (Part 2)

Posted by : foongpc | Sunday, January 24, 2016 | Published in


Continued from Part 1

Now that we know what the year 2016 holds for us, let's move on to discover which sectors in your home are auspicious and which are inauspicious in this Year of the Fire Monkey.

To do that, you need to have a proper compass so that you can plot the sectors of your home. An iPhone compass is fine. In fact, most mobile phones come with a compass nowadays so you don't really need to go out and buy a physical compass.

Now what you need to do is to stand in the middle of your house with the compass at waist height and let the compass needle stops spinning. You will be able to see where exactly the North direction is. Then using your house plan, mark out all the 8 main sectors of the compass like the example shown below.

Image Source 

If you do not have a house plan, then try to draw your own but make it as accurate as possible.

Once you have a your 8 main sectors all marked out, refer to the Flying Star Chart for 2016.

Image taken from seminar booklet

The flying stars refer to the numbers in the grid which 'fly' around in a certain pattern every year. Each number represents different things. So the Flying Star Chart differs from year to year and that is why you need to update your feng shui every year. The sector that is auspicious this year may become inauspicious next year. You do not want to be activating inauspicious energy!

Let's start with the auspicious sectors first shall we?

In 2016, the number 8 which represents direct wealth flies to the South West sector. Direct wealth means hard work that creates wealth for you.  If your main door or bedroom is located here, then you will enjoy great wealth this year. If not, then try to use this sector more often. Frequent usage of the South West sector this year will manifest success and prosperity for the occupants.

Alternatively, Joey Yap recommends activating the Wealth Star 8 with placement of water in this sector. The water feature should be at least 2 feet deep and about 1,000 square feet large to be effective. It should not be covered and is best placed outside the house. If you already have a swimming pool in the South West, that's perfect and there is no need to do anything more.

But what happens if your toilet is in the South West? Joey Yap said in such a case, simply use your toilet more often! OK, I am not sure if he's joking, or he's trying to be sarcastic. LOL.

The next auspicious sector this year is in the East sector where the number 9 resides. 9 represents indirect wealth which is wealth created after leveraging on one-time work, or wealth from investments. This sector is most important to business owners and investors. Regular usage of this sector will manifest positive outcomes for one's investments, status and recognition.

If you don't use much of the East sector, then activating it with water will also do the trick. The same rules regarding water activation as mentioned above applies. Again, if you happen to have a swimming pool in the East, then you have it made!

Note that water placed outside the house is always more effective than water placed inside the house. According to Joey Yap, external water means you are using other people's money for your investment or business, thus there is no risk on your side. Internal water means you are actually using your own money, so it is more risky.

The number 1 Star flies to the South East this year. Number 1 represents reputation, recognition and advancement. It is important to note that the number 1 Star when combined with the South East sector is considered one of the most favourite combinations in Flying Star feng shui. This combination represents the highest ranking nobleman star, so if you wish to attract helpful people and nobleman in your life, you must activate the South East this year.

Again, activate it simply by using the South East sector more often, or use water placement.

Another auspicious sector for 2016 is the South sector where the number 6 Star resides. This star represents authority, career, power and reputation. Activating this sector will enhance chances of promotion and salary increment. This sector is also the execution palace, meaning this is the sector that get things done. So if you are running a business, putting key people like project managers in the South sector of your office will ensure that things get done.

In summary, if your house front door or bedroom is located in these four auspicious sectors i.e. South West, East, South East and South, you will most likely enjoy good feng shui in 2016.

Now let's move on to the inauspicious sectors for 2016.

The deadliest sector this year is North East, where the Five Yellow (Star number 5) flies in. This dreaded star which is an Earth element flies into the North East, which is also an Earth element sector, making it twice as deadly. But that's not all. It so happens that the Year Breaker (or Sui Po) is also located in the North East (specifically North East 3) this year, thus making this sector a triple whammy!

Refrain from doing any type of renovation, and groundbreaking activities at the North East sector or you will suffer from misfortunes, loss of wealth, illness and accidents.

The best and safest way to avoid the Five Yellow and Year Breaker afflictions is to simply avoid using the North East this year. If you have a bedroom here, move out! If you have the front door here, try using another door. But if that is not possible, then Joey Yap recommends activating all the good sectors to the maximum. This will make the positives far outweigh the negatives, thus balancing out the bad energy or vibes created by the afflictions.

The West sector has the Romance and Scholastic Star number 4 this year. This is supposed to be a pretty good sector for those who are pursuing academic success and also in romantic relationships, so it's not really an inauspicious sector. However, the wood element of Star number 4 clashes with the metal element of the West sector, indicating betrayal and a setback in trust. An alternative for academic excellence is to use South East.

The number 7 star flies into the North this year. This star when activated, will bring about robbery and loss of wealth. If your main door is located here, you have a higher risk of being robbed.

The number 3 star, which brings arguments and disputes flies into the North West this year. Avoid using this sector as it causes conflicts and arguments which may escalate to lawsuits and legal issues. However, if you are stuck in your career, this sector may be useful to create a change, though you will need to go through some pain.

Image taken from seminar booklet

Now, besides the inauspicious sectors mentioned above, do also take note of two other major afflictions. One is the Three Killings which is located at the South sector this year. Keep the South sector quiet and do not have any renovation or groundbreaking activities here to avoid the risk of illness, accidents and loss of wealth.

Note that this actually contradict with the earlier advice about activating the South sector because it has the auspicious number 6 star. Well, I really do not know if you should activate the South or not, but personally I will not. Better to play safe than to risk it! If you are a feng shui expert reading this, what do you advise?

The second affliction is the Grand Duke Jupiter (or Tai Sui) which is located at South West 3 this year. Just like the Three Killings, starting a renovation or doing ground breaking here will result in illness, accidents and loss of wealth. Try not to spend too much time in this sector and most importantly, DO NOT sit facing the Grand Duke, ie. DO NOT face South West. However, sitting with your back against the South West will actually enhance your authority as it is said that you have the backing of the Grand Duke.

Again, should I activate South West since it's the Wealth sector this year? Contradictions again! Perhaps make sure you activate just South West 1 and 2, but be careful not to touch South West 3? 

In conclusion, do not renovate or aggravate the following sectors in 2016...
North East - Five Yellow
North East 3 - Year Breaker
South - Three Killings
South West 3 - Grand Duke Jupiter

However, what happens if you accidentally trigger these negative sectors? What happens if it's not you who trigger it, but someone else? You see, some things are beyond your control. What if your neighbour decide to do a renovation at the part of their home which is in your North East sector this year? They will inadvertently trigger the Five Yellow for you!

Most feng shui masters would recommend placing a cure at the afflicted area. However, Joey Yap said that placing cures like feng shui items and objects are not really effective. His advice is to activate the good sectors instead so that the negative effects from triggering the bad stars would be minimised.

Personally, I prefer to do both ie. placing the cures as well as activating the good sectors. You don't need to buy expensive feng shui paraphernalia, you just need to place objects based on the five elements theory. But well, different people will have different opinion regarding this matter so while we can debate about this to no end, I would have to end this post here.

In Part 3, I will be sharing what the four major sectors Joey Yap said you must activate in order to build a back-up immunity just in case you or your neighbour accidentally trigger the bad sectors. Also, I will be sharing the activation dates and times that Joey Yap provided during the seminar. These are activation for wealth, health, relationships, academic, and more, so stay tuned.

Feng Shui 2016 According To Joey Yap (Part 1)

Posted by : foongpc | Tuesday, January 12, 2016 | Published in


NOTE : Read the latest! - FENG SHUI 2018 ACCORDING TO JOEY YAP

Last Sunday, I attended Joey Yap's 2016 Feng Shui & Astrology Seminar at KL Convention Centre. It was the first time I took the LRT to attend a seminar in KL. I usually drive, but I decided to do something different this time.

As expected, it was full house. Look at this photo of the Plenary Hall! (Photo taken from Joey Yap's Facebook page).

I went there with two other friends that day. We had to queue up to register for the seminar - and the queue was long! Luckily, the queue moved pretty fast and it did not take too long.

I have to say this is one of the better yearly seminars of Joey Yap. I think this time, he did a fantastic job of explaining the basics especially to feng shui newbies without taking too much time. And of course, he was still as sarcastic as ever, which I thought was what made his seminar fun.

Just like last year, we were required to print out our Personal Bazi Charts so that what he said would be relevant to each individual. I am going to share with you what he said during the seminar so if you do not have your Bazi Chart ready, do get it HERE before continue reading.

Below is the Bazi Chart for the Year 2016. Sorry if it's not very clear. The image, which is copyrighted, is taken from Joey Yap's Seminar booklet. So I am not sure how long this image will remain here. In the event that I am asked to take it down, I may have no choice but to do so (hopefully not!)

According to Joey Yap, the most dominant element in 2016 is Fire. This is followed by Wood, Water, Metal and lastly, Earth which is the least dominant. However, this applies to Malaysia only.

Fire industries will do well in 2016. This includes petrol, food, aviation, technology, electronics, entertainment and pharmaceutical.

Now check your Personal Bazi Chart. If you have Fire in any of the four pillars, then that's good news for you. However, too much fire means you will be emotional, so just 2 or 3 fires in your chart is good enough.

If you do not have Fire in your chart, check if you have Wood instead. Since Wood produces Fire, even if you do not have a single Fire in your chart, having Wood means you are still safe :)

Joey Yap also mentioned that if you have both Fire and Wood, then it's pretty safe to travel in 2016. Otherwise, try not to travel so much.

There is also Fire conquering Metal (Fire sitting on top of Metal) in this year's Chart. The last time a similar chart appeared was during 9/11. So there may be major conflicts and explosion this year.

Metal also represents job security so this will likely affect those in the metal industries like financial, banking, military, and automobiles. Metal is regarded as a negative element this year.

However, one element missing from the chart is Water (only have hidden Water in the Chart). So anyone with Water in his or her Personal Bazi Chart will be the luckiest in 2016.

Water industries will do well since water is sorely needed. This includes tourism, aquatic, fishery, shipping, transport, and the service industry.

Earth, which is the least dominant element this year will confirm the fears of many that the property market will not be booming in 2016. However, Joey Yap said it may perhaps be a good time to buy property. Others in the Earth industry includes insurance, mining, and construction.

In conclusion, if you have all the three elements - Water, Wood and Fire in your Personal Bazi Chart, 2016 will be a great year for you! If you do not have all three, then it may mean 2016 will be a rather challenging year.

Also, the more Earth elements you have in your Bazi Chart, the worse it will be. 2016 may then turn out to be a really slow year for you. However, do not be upset. After all, it is only for one year. Nothing is permanent. And things will change in 2017. Also, if your Bazi Chart does not favour your luck and fortune this year, you can improve your situation by using Feng Shui! Now you know why we need to learn about Feng Shui, don't you? :)

Referring to the 2016 Bazi Chart, Joey Yap explained some of the calamities that might occur in 2016. Since there is a Fire - Metal clash, this indicates transport accidents. Monkey and Tiger clash also indicates major accidents.

If you have Monkey and Tiger in your Personal Bazi Chart, then your chances of being involved in traffic accident is higher.

The Fire - Metal clash also indicates war related conflicts, possibly more terrorist attacks.

With Water hidden underneath the Chart, this may possibly indicate tsunami. Fire on top of the Chart also indicates hurricane.

As for Health issues, Metal in the Bazi Chart indicates illness dealing with lungs, breathing and also prostate problems.

For 2016, Metal represents Cash, Water represents Profits, Fire represents Sales and Wood represents Assets. If you have Metal in your Personal Bazi Chart, then you will have cash. If it appears on the top (heavenly stem), then everyone knows you are rich. But if it appears at the bottom (Earthly branch), then no one knows you are rich.

If you have Water in your Chart, then it is a profitable year for you. Even though it is profitable, it does not mean you receive the cash. So for a person running a business, it is best to have both Water and Metal in his or her chart. Otherwise, your business may be making profit, but the cash does not reach you.

If you have Fire in your Chart, this means you have sales. For sales to take place also indicates you are influential and have the ability to easily convince people.

If you have Wood in your Chart, this means you have better luck than others in getting property or assets this year.

Joey Yap also briefly mentioned about Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, having Water and Metal in his Bazi Chart, so Joey believes Tim will be having some great opportunities this year.

Without going into full details, I am going to briefly mention about the animal signs and what they each represents in your Bazi Chart. The Wealth Stars are Ox, Pig, Snake and Rabbit. If you have an Ox in the Month Pillar, your career will improve this year.

The Relationship Stars are Ox, Goat and Rooster. Ox represents happy events, Goat true love and Rooster uncontrollable desire.

Rabbit, Rat and Monkey represents Status, Power and Recognition. Of these three, Rabbit is the greatest as it is the most auspicious star where you will have the power to command other people. If you have Monkey in your Chart, then a lot of people will take notice of you this year - definitely a good animal sign to have if you into branding or marketing.

Rooster, Snake and Rabbit represent Helpful People. Rooster is the most powerful nobleman star. If Rooster is in your Year Pillar, then you are the noble person - make sure you are more helpful to others. If you have Snake in your Chart, then it's a year of good food and entertainment - which of course translates to getting fat! LOL. Rabbit is a Dragon Virtue star meaning if you have Rabbit in your month or day pillar, you will see all your obstacles easily dissolved.

Tiger and Boar both represents Dissolving Problems. If you have Tiger in your chart, then no matter how big is your problem, it will most certainly be resolved. If you have a Boar, then it is a good year to move house.

Academic are represented by Dragon and Monkey. A Monkey in your chart indicates you are somehow more intelligent this year - you can decipher things easily.

Tiger and Snake indicates connections and networking. If you have Tiger in your chart, you will be good at networking this year. And if you have a Snake, then you will get to know the right people at the right places!

People with Boar and Rooster in their Chart may suffer from memory lapse and forgetfulness this year. While people with Dog, Goat, Tiger and Rat may be emotional.

Those with Dragon and Horse should watch out for accidents. Dragon indicates bleeding and small injuries - you can take pre-emptive measures by donating blood. Doing so will help you avoid unlucky accidents that might befall you.

For health related issues, those with Goat, Monkey and Tiger in their charts take note. Goat indicates stomach problem and digestive issues. Monkey indicates injuries by sharp objects, possible minor surgeries and accidents at work. Tiger indicates internal bleeding, inflammation and cyst or growth.
If you have all three - Goat, Monkey, Tiger - in your Bazi Chart, then you may be very sick in 2016 so do make extra effort to take good care of your health!

Joey Yap then showed us how to resolve problems using animal signs. For example, if you have a Goat in your Bazi Chart and it is a problem for you, then you need to look for people with Dog, Rat or Horse to assist you. Unfortunately, I am not able to reproduce the chart here. Anyone knows where to get this chart?

In Part 2, I will cover the Flying Star Charts of 2016, which directions and sectors in your home are auspicious and inauspicious, and what you can do about them. Stay tuned :)

I Am Back!

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, January 8, 2016 | Published in


Hi everyone! I am back!!

Firstly, Happy New Year 2016 to all my readers! Thank you for visiting my blog again after the unfortunate incident that started in November last year.

In case you did not know what happened to my blog and why I did not blog for more than a month, well, here's the story. Back in November 2015, I noticed that whenever I visited my own blog, a window would open and an ad about keeping my laptop safe appeared. As soon as I click the window close, it would automatically opened a new tab on my laptop and the ad would appear again on the separate tab.

At first, I did not think too much of it and simply just closed that tab. But when it kept happening every single time I visited my blog, I knew something was wrong. But I was simply too busy to care at that time.

Then in early December, right after I posted a new blog post, readers told me that they could no longer access my blog because all they saw on the screen was this!

 photo ScreenShot Warning_zpsqjieb4ql.png

Strangely, I could not see this red warning sign using my Safari browser on my Macbook. Neither did I see it via my mobile phone. So I could still read my own blog. But when I tried visiting my blog via Google Chrome browser, the red alert appeared. I was shocked.

I was advised to remove all widgets and ads, which I did. I took out Bidvertiser (which I suspected was the main source of my problem), and most of the widgets I deemed unsafe. But roughly three weeks after I did that, I checked and the red warning sign remained. I was frustrated! What else should I do?

I thought of getting help from experts out there although I knew it would not be cheap. I found Sucuri  but the amount I got to pay them (US$199.92 per year) was too expensive considering that my blog is not really a money-making type of blog. It would not be worth paying that much, unless the income I derive from my blog is in the thousands!

 photo ScreenShot Sucuri_zpsykpu2xhl.png

I almost gave up and was even thinking of starting a second blog when the day after the New Year (i.e. Jan 2nd, 2016) I visited my blog one more time via Google Chrome browser and got a huge surprise! There was no more red alert warning! I could not believe my eyes!

I quickly texted a few friends and asked other bloggers to check if my blog was indeed cleared from virus and malware. The responses were in the affirmative. I was ecstatic. What great news! What an awesome New Year gift for me!

Thank you Google, even though it took you a month to remove me from the "Blacklisted" list.

 photo ScreenShot Spike_zpsdz81grlr.png

A few days after that, traffic returned to my blog and there was in fact, a spike in traffic from Google.com. But of course, I did not read too much into that since the spike was from zero traffic. LOL! So yeah, I am back, everyone!! Happy New Year 2016! :)
