Part 5 : Auxiliary Stars In The 12 Animal Signs For 2018
In this final part, I will be sharing about the auxiliary stars found in the 12 animal signs. Every year, different stars reside in each of the 12 animal signs.

Before proceeding further, you might want to get a better understanding on how to find the animal signs in your Personal Bazi Chart and what each of the 4 pillars of the chart represent. Since I have written about it last year, I won't be repeating it this year.  Read about it HERE.

Now let's take a look at the various stars in different categories and the animal signs they reside in the year 2018.

Found in Ox, Goat, Horse, Dog and Monkey

1. Moon (Ox) - Great for those who want to start their own business. If you are currently working for others, you might want to consider starting your own business this year.

2. National Treasure (Ox) - Having this star means you have the ability to control your finance and budget.

3. Jade Hall (Goat) - This star represents increase in the value of your assets. If no asset, then it's a good time to acquire asset this year. If the Goat is in your Year or Month pillar, buy commercial related property. If the Goat is in your Day or Hour pillar, buy residential house.

4. Golden Chest (Horse) - Having this star means people will trust you. Trust is the most valuable commodity in business. So if you are in business, or you are doing sales, teaching, or any kind of leadership role, this star is excellent.

5. Elegant Seal (Dog) - Good for artists and those in creative line.

6. Sky Horse (Monkey) - Good for traveling. What this means is that you can do business overseas, either by flying to another country or doing an online business.  Also if you have this star, you have the ability to successfully change to a different industry.

Found in Pig, Snake and Rabbit

1. Sky Happiness (Pig) - If you are single, you have a good chance to find someone. If you are married, there is a possibility of a new addition to your family.

2. Red Matchmaker (Snake) - This star represents love at first sight as your likeability increased. If the Snake is in your Year or Month pillar, people will find you a very good company. If the Snake is in your Day or Hour pillar and you are single, you will suddenly fall in love. Or people will fall in love with you.

3. Salty Pool (Rabbit) - Passion and desire increase if you have this star. May attract unwanted relationship, so be aware. If the Rabbit is in your Year or Month pillar, you get easily distracted in your business and career. If the Rabbit is in your Day or Hour pillar, you get easily distracted in your relationships.

Found in Horse, Dog and Dragon

1. The General (Horse) - With this star, you tend to be in charge by taking on two or more roles in your work. This does not mean you have a pay increase, but you will have more power. If you are someone who do not like to do more, this star is not for you.

2. The Duke's Arrival (Dog) - This star gets you more attention. A lot of people will look at what you do and comment or criticize you. Only good for those who like attention. If you are someone who like to keep a low profile, having this star will make you more stressful!

3. Heavenly Power (Dragon) - Denotes authority and responsibility. With this star, you can be more proactive in your career or relationship and make major decisions and take on new responsibility.

Found in Dog, Rooster and Dragon

1. Dog -  Dog in a Dog Year is definitely offending the Grand Duke. You will most likely suffer emotional setbacks like sudden bouts of depression and some slight pessimistic feelings.

2. Rooster - Not a peaceful year. You will feel somewhat uneasy.

3. Dragon - Clashes with Grand Duke - this means big changes which can be good or bad.

Found in Ox, Goat, Rat, and Pig

1. Heavenly Yi (Ox) - This star brings mentor into your life. It's the only one that people will come into your life and force to help you, so do not reject, but accept and say thank you!

2. Fortune Virtue (Goat) - A fortune star where you get to enjoy life, have lots of good food and parties. If someone invites you to a party, go!

3. Advisor (Rat) - If you have this star, go find the right teacher or guru. It's good time to learn under a guru.

4. Sun (Pig) - Having this star means you become the helpful person to others. Helping others is a good thing!

Found in Horse, Rabbit and Pig

Advice from Joey Yap - Get a partner to help you achieve what you can't do yourself. Never get a partner just because both of you are compatible with each other.

1. Horse - Lots of partners

2. Rabbit - One partner

3. Pig - Hidden partner. This means someone invest in you but he or she is hidden behind the scenes.

We are moving into the 24 years of spiritual trend since 2017.  If you have any of these 4 animal signs, it is advisable to pursue spiritual studies.

3. Hidden Corpse (Dog) - Problems with internal organs

4. Month Emptiness (Dragon) - If you have been suffering from ill health, this is good news as your illness will suddenly disappear this year.

Feeling overwhelmed and confused with all the information about the stars and the animal signs? Perhaps it will be easier if you just focus on the 5 animals signs that you find in your Personal Bazi Chart (4 animals in your Bazi four pillars and 1 animal in your 10-Year Luck Pillar).  Instead of reading through all the good and bad stars mentioned above, just watch the short videos of each of the 5 animal signs you have in your Bazi Chart.

These videos are prepared and hosted by Joey Yap himself. There are 12 videos overall, each video focusing on one of the 12 animal signs. In each video, Joey explains about the good and bad stars found in the animal sign for 2018.  WATCH THE VIDEOS HERE.

My Visit To The National Planetarium Of Malaysia

Posted by : foongpc | Tuesday, March 27, 2018 | Published in


Last month, I visited Planetarium Negara (National Planetarium) with a friend from Singapore. It was my second time visiting this tourist attraction in Kuala Lumpur although my first time was more than 15 years ago!

I did not think about visiting it until my Singaporean friend who would be flying over to Kuala Lumpur for a short holiday told me he wanted to visit it. So I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to play tour guide. Lol. 

It was a rather last minute decision for my friend to have his holidays in Malaysia so he had some difficulty getting cheap flights from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. At first, I thought he would not make it, but luckily, he managed to secure his air ticket at quite a reasonable price! 

Getting to Planetarium Negara was easy. I did not drive my friend there. Neither did we sit a taxi or get a Uber driver to take us there. Since my friend was staying at the Royale Chulan Damansara Hotel near The Curve shopping mall in Mutiara Damansara, we simply took the MRT.  It was really convenient as the Mutiara Damansara MRT Station is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel!

We alighted at the Muzium Negara MRT Station. The ride from Mutiara Damansara to Muzium Negara took less than 20 minutes. 

This is the escalator at the Muzium Negara MRT Station that leads to the exit at the top. 

The exit door (PIntu B) which leads directly to the front entrance of Muzium Negara (National Museum).

Did we visit Muzium Negara, which is another famous tourist attraction in Kuala Lumpur? Yes, we did, but perhaps I will blog about it in another post as this post is about the National Planetarium.

This is an old locomotive displayed right outside the National Museum. Nice?

And this is a statue of Frank Swettenham. Don't know who he is? Never mind, if you are really interested or you love history, just google it :)

In the background right behind the tree is the Muzium Negara building. But, more about Muzium Negara in another post.

To get to Planetarium Negara, you need to walk up the stairs to cross the pedestrian bridge to the other side of the road. The stairs is located very near to this statue. Look for the signboard that shows direction to the Planetarium.

There were not many people walking the pedestrian bridge that day. Hence, we had the whole bridge to ourselves. Lol.

The pedestrian bridge links Muzium Negara to the Planetarium. Below is Jalan Damansara.

Reaching the Planetarium open space car park, you can see this signboard showing the details and map of the National Planetarium.

As you can see, there are many interesting attractions both inside and outside the Planetarium building.

This is the National Planetarium building with its blue dome and a tall tower beside it. Situated on top of the hill at the Lake Gardens area in Kuala Lumpur, it was built back in 1990 and opened to the public in 1993.

I did not take many pictures of the insides as it was rather dim. Most of the exhibits inside are related to space science. By the way,  it is free entry except for the space theatre, which we did not enter.

One of the many exhibits include this Viking rocket engine. I am not really a huge fan of such exhibits, but my friend love them, so it's really no wonder why he wanted so much to visit this Planetarium.

You can also go up the Observatory Tower where you can enjoy the city skyline and look through the telescope.

Outside the building, in the garden area you can find many replicas of ancient observatories.

This is a replica of the infamous Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England.

This is Jai Singh Observatory, which is actually an ancient sundial.

Another sundial known as Guo Shou Jing Observatory, from China.

This is called The Merdeka Sundial, located near the Satellite Station.

A weird looking sculpture that is supposed to symbolise space and time.

Another sundial located halfway the stairs going up to the Planetarium building.

We spent about one hour at this Planetarium. I thought it was worth visiting although some people may think otherwise. Anyway, it's one item off my Singaporean friend's checklist of places to visit in Kuala Lumpur. The National Planetarium opens daily from 9am till 4.30pm except on Mondays.

Feng Shui 2018 According To Joey Yap (Part 4)

Posted by : foongpc | Sunday, March 11, 2018 | Published in


Part 1 : Outlook 2018
Part 2 : Face Reading Tips
Part 3 : Flying Stars 2018

The Afflictions For 2018 are as follows :

1. Grand Duke - NorthWest 1
Joey Yap said there's no need to be afraid of this Grand Duke. It only affects old people, usually affecting their health. There is no real solution to this affliction other than not staying or sleeping in this NorthWest 1 sector. Also do not renovate this sector.

2. Year Breaker - SouthEast 1
If activated, this affliction would cause unnecessary spending. However, Joey Yap said that if you enhance the wealth star, income capacity will increase and as such, the additional spending would not be too much of a problem.

3. Five Yellow - North
4. Three Killings - North
Both Five Yellow and Three Killings are in the North this year which makes North the most unlucky sector for 2018. Absolutely no renovation, as this double whammy afflictions would certainly spell disaster to your wealth, career and health.

Here are some examples on how you can possibly trigger the Five Yellow and the Three Killings in the North :
1. construction / renovation
2. installing an aquarium or building a swimming pool
3. planting a tree / digging the ground
4. moving the furniture around
5. changing the entire bed mattress or moving the bed

Make sure that you don't do any of the above in your North sector this year!

Note that sleeping or cooking in the North would not trigger the Five Yellow and Three Killings, so do not worry too much if your bedroom or kitchen is in the North.

However, if your neighbour to your North decides to renovate their house this year, that would most certainly activate the Five Yellow and Three Killings for you even though it's none of your fault!

In such an unfortunate case, Joey Yap said we should first activate all the good sectors (especially the Four Major Auspicious Stars). This would help to reduce the negative impact of the Five Yellow and Three Killing by at least 50 percent.

What are the Four Major Auspicious Stars? They are :
1. Dragon Virtue - SouthEast 3
2. Fortune Virtue - SouthWest 1
3. Sun - NorthWest 3
4. Moon - NorthEast 1

How to activate these good stars? The same way you activate the negative stars ie. renovation, moving the furniture around, digging the ground etc. Or you can simply place a water feature at these locations for 2 weeks. Even a pail of water is fine.

Below are the recommended date and time to activate these stars.

Dragon Virtue (SouthEast 3)
19 Feb 2018 @ 1.30pm (clash Rat)

Fortune Virtue (SouthWest 1)
8 March 2018 @ 3.30pm (clash Snake) or
17 March 2018 @ 7.30am (clash Tiger)

Sun (NorthWest 3)
26 April 2018 @ 7.30am (clash Horse)

Moon (NorthEast 1)
7 April 2018 @ 1.30pm (clash Pig) or
23 April 2018 @ 7.30am (clash Rabbit)

Note that the clash animal signs in brackets means if your Personal Bazi Chart has those animals, activating the stars will not have any effect on you. For example, if you want to activate Fortune Virtue star, but you have a Snake in your Bazi Chart, then activating on 8 of March will not be beneficial to you. Choose 17 March instead.

Below are the dates and time for activating different aspects of your life.

1. 20 March 2018 @ 6.30am, West (clash Snake)
2. 10 April 2018 @ 11.30am, North (clash Tiger)

It is best to activate the sector and immediately followed that with activities related to wealth.

11 May 2018 @ 3.30pm, South (clash Rooster)

Sit facing North, with your back towards the South. The other person you are making a deal with should be sitting facing you, that is South. This will ensure the deal works in your favour. However, if there is a Rooster in your Bazi Chart (or in his), this would not work.

14 April 2018 @ 7.30pm, NorthEast (clash Horse)
11 June 2018 @ 3pm, West (clash Dragon)

An example to make this work if you are looking for a boyfriend or girlfriend is to attend an event or party where you can get to mingle and meet lots of people. But this event/party must be at the NorthEast from your house if you are using the 14 April activation date. (Use Google map to determine the correct direction).
At 7.30pm on the given date, leave your house for the event/party. On reaching there, randomly talk to anyone and you may find someone who clicks with you or someone you meet may introduce you to another person.

What happens if the event/party is not located in the NorthEast from where you stay? In this case, stay overnight at a hotel or a friend's house that is located at the SouthWest of the event/party so that you will still end up traveling in the NorthEast direction to the event the next day.

22 April 2018 @ 7.30pm, North (clash Tiger)

Do not activate, but use this date and time to travel to the North to look for a doctor or even to ask anyone for help in finding someone who can cure your health problem.

13 April 2018 @ 3.30pm, SouthEast (clash Snake)
20 April 2018 @ 7am, SouthEast (clash Rat)

Use these dates and time to read books or to find someone to teach you.

14 April 2018 @ 5.30pm, East (clash Horse)

Sit facing West, with your back towards East and make a wish. Specify exactly and in detail what you want fulfilled and see your wish comes true. You can also use this to make a wish for other people.

These are the dates that you must absolutely not do anything important eg. start a business, get married, move house, change job etc.

24 April 2018 @ 9pm, North
27 October 2018 @ 3pm, NorthEast

Joey Yap also mentioned the time and direction to activate the God Of Wealth for Chinese New Year, and also gave the best days to start work after Chinese New Year during the seminar, but since the Chinese New Year is already long over,  I won't be posting about them.

In Part 5, I will be sharing about the good and bad auxiliary stars in each of the 12 animal signs. Stay tuned :)

Feng Shui 2018 According To Joey Yap (Part 3)

Posted by : foongpc | Thursday, March 1, 2018 | Published in


Part 1 : Outlook for 2018

According to Joey Yap, the top 5 animal signs for 2018 are 
1. Ox
2. Snake
3. Goat
4. Horse
5. Pig

Now look at your Personal Bazi Chart (PBC). Do you have any of these animals? 
If you are unfortunate enough not to have even one of them, then check your spouse's PBC. If he or she has these animal signs, you can 'borrow' from him or her.

What happens if your PBC have none of these top 5 animals, and also have no Fire, Wood and Metal (the top  3 elements for 2018)? This year would not be a good year for you. This is not the end of the world, it just means that you should not do anything 'big' this year. Lie low. The logic is if you do nothing, nothing bad can possibly happen to you. 

If however, you have the top animal signs and you have the good elements in your PBC, then you should do more in 2018. Take risk, launch your business, work harder in 2018. 

The problem is most people do the exact opposite - when they have all the good signs, they do nothing. So nothing good happens to them. Then when they have the bad signs, they do everything (eg. change job, get married, launch a new business etc. etc) so they end up suffering from all sorts of bad luck. 

Regardless of whether you have a good or bad year, you can always use feng shui to improve your situation. There are two types of feng shui
1. Long term feng shui
2. Short term feng shui

Long term feng shui is for long term goals while short term feng shui is for short term goals, usually within one year. For buying property to stay or invest, and build a multi million dollar business, use long term feng shui. Whereas to increase income, find a boyfriend/girlfriend, or heal a sickness, use short term feng shui.

To change feng shui, there are 2 ways. Either
1. Change environment - eg. change room or
2. Stay in the same sector, but change activities. You don't always need to add elements.

For short term feng shui, we use the Flying Star Chart.
Below is the Flying Star Chart for 2018.

Image taken from seminar booklet

Superimpose the Flying Star Chart onto your house plan so that you know exactly which part of your house is in which sector. To do this, stand somewhere in the middle of your house and use a compass to identify the sectors.

The good sectors this year are South East, South, South West and North West.

The most important sector in 2018 is South East (Wealth Star 8). To make use of this Wealth Star, spend more time here doing business related activity.

Another good sector is South West (Star 6). If you have ideas to start your own business, spending time in this sector will help you make your ideas come true. Basically, it turns your ideas into reality.

North West is the Nobility sector. Spending time in this sector will help you to meet noble people. To get to where you want to go or to succeed in your business, you need the knowledge which you can acquire either from reading books or from being taught by someone who knows. If you are looking to learn from someone, then this Nobility star will help you attract that someone to you.

Joey Yap said it is not necessary to sleep in these sectors. You do not have to turn any of these rooms into your bedroom. Instead, spending more time doing your work in these sectors will be more effective.

Last year, South was not a good sector (with the Five Yellow there), but this year, the South with the Academic Star 4 is fantastic. Since almost anything you want in life is achievable as long as you know how, this sector is therefore very important to help you gain knowledge and know-how. It may be the most important star if you desire to change anything in your life. And especially so in 2018, as the unique combination of the 4 and 1 (star 4 and South) - activate most of the positive energies of Star 4.

The bad sectors for 2018 are North, North East, East and West.

The West is inflicted with Illness Star 2 and although it is not a good sector for health, it is however a good sector to be productive and achieve a lot of greatness in business due to the 2 - 7 combination of the Star 2 entering the West.

Argument Star 3 enters North East this year. Although staying in this sector causes more arguments, the combination of 3 - 8 (Star 3 and NorthEast) however helps you to break through and conquer your fears. If you feel stuck in your relationship or career, consider using this sector to help you break through.

Robbery Star 7 in the East does not seem like a good sector, as you stand the chance of being robbed or have your belongings stolen. However, the 3 - 7 combination of East and Star 7 is actually great for making money especially if your business involves talking and teaching.

That leaves us with the one and only really bad sector for 2018 - the North. This is where the dreaded 5 Yellow resides this year. But the bad news is, the North is also afflicted by the 3 Killings this year, so it's kind of a double whammy. More on this 5 Yellow affliction in Part 4.

However, the severity of the afflictions differ according to your Life Star number.

To know your Life Star number, simply download your Personal Bazi Chart from Joey Yap's website HERE.

This is an example of a Bazi Chart from the site. The Life Star number is circled in blue.

Once you know what your Life Star number is, look at the illustration below. I did not manage to take a photo of it during the seminar, so I had to draw this out. This is the 2018 Flying Star Chart with the respective flying star numbers in each of the nine sectors.

Note : Updated with an actual photo from the seminar, thanks to a kind reader. 

The small numbers outside the chart are the Life Star numbers. The red Life Star numbers are good while the black numbers are not.

For example, in the West, Illness Star 2 affects only people with Life Star number 1, 3, 4, 6 and 7 (black numbers). If your Life Star is number 2, 5, 8 or 9 (red numbers), you won't be affected much by this illness star even if you sleep or work in this sector. Technical Explanation : The combo 2- 7 (Star 2 and West) makes fire. Fire that is strong produces 2, 5, 8 (Earth) and strengthen the Star 9 (Fire).

In the North East where the Argument Star 3 resides, people with Life Star number 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 will have breakthrough but with arguments. People with Life Star number 3, 4 and 9 will have breakthrough only, no argument for them.

If you stay in the East where the Robbery Star 7 is, you will have a good chance of getting robbed if your Life Star number is 6, 7 or 9. However, if your Life Star number is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 8, you will actually make more money!

Although Wealth Star 8 resides in South East this year, don't expect too much if your Life Star number is 1, 3 or 4. On the other hand, if your Life Star number is 2, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9, you should make use of this sector to increase your wealth.

The worst sector which is North with the dreaded Five Yellow affects those with Life Star number 1, 2, 3, 4, 8 and 9 badly. However, if your Life Star number is 5, 6 or 7,  you won't be affected too much by this Five Yellow.

In Part 4, we are going to look at the other major afflictions for 2018 (eg. Grand Duke, Year Breaker, Five Yellow, Three Killings) and what to do about them. Plus the activation date and time for wealth, health, relationships and more. Stay tuned :)

Feng Shui 2018 According To Joey Yap (Part 2)

Posted by : foongpc | Sunday, February 25, 2018 | Published in


Continued from Part 1

During the Feng Shui and Astrology Seminar 2018 in KL, Joey Yap shared some hints and tips on the art of face reading. This part of the seminar was quite funny and entertaining as his talk contained a lot of jokes.

In Part 1, it was mentioned that Fire is the most important element for Malaysia in 2018. You can also see if you have the fire element from your face.

First, touch the top of your head. Is it protruded or flat? If it's protruded, then you have the fire element. 2018 will be a good year for you.

Next, look at your eyes. If they are alert and sharp, then you are generally driven by vision and likely to be successful.

Eyes that are too close to each other means the person is mean. The closer the eyes,  the meaner the person. If the distance of your eyes is same as the distance of your nostrils, then you have the fire energy in you and 2018 will be a good year for you.

The eyes should also be on the same level. If one eye is higher than the other, the person has fire related problems. It could be problem with technology, for example your phone or computer not working. Or problem with happiness, since fire represents passion. Or it could be health problem. Eye issues are usually related to the heart, so take care of the heart.

The bigger the eye, the more sentimental the person. People with small eyes are better at keeping secrets. For actors and performers, bigger eyes are better. People with smaller eyes are more suited to be in business.

Eyes that protrude or sink inside the eye sockets are not good. Sunken eyes (means eye socket too big) indicate fire element problem. People with sunken eyes usually suffer from family problems.

On the other hand, people with protruding eyes suffer from bad relationship, as they are always fighting and thinking they are right. Joey also mentioned that people whose eyes are close together and protruding are usually terrorists. Lol.

The second most important element for 2018 is Wood. For this, you need to look at your hair and eyebrow. See if your hair is thick or thin. The thicker and rougher the hair, the more temperamental and emotional the person.

The softer the hair, the more calm and gentle the person is. This year, people with naturally softer and thinner hair are more elegant.

People with thick eyebrows usually cannot save money. Also, the person usually suffer from academic problem ie. difficulty in learning and studying.

Lastly, the Metal element. For this, we look at the cheeks and ear lobes.

Generally, the bigger the ear, the longer the life span. Also people with big ears have better immune system.

If the ears are higher than the eye brows, the person likes to study, has high IQ and is very receptive. In 2018, people with ears higher than eye brows are better at learning new things.

If one ear is higher than the other, the person always doubt and does not believe in what he or she learns.

The higher the cheek bones, the more people you can command. This is why most leaders have high cheek bones as well as high foreheads.  Most people however have low cheek bones.

In Part 3, I will be sharing about the the Top 5 animal signs for 2018 and a look at the Flying Star Chart of the year. Stay tuned :)

Feng Shui 2018 According To Joey Yap (Part 1)

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, February 23, 2018 | Published in


It's that time of the year again for feng shui updates!

I have to apologize for this rather late updates, but I was really busy, and still am. I will try to keep the post short and to the point with minimal words.

Last month, I attended Joey Yap's Feng Shui and Astrology 2018 at KL Convention Centre. As usual, it was full house.

This time, I will cut straight to the chase with the worldwide prediction for 2018 based on the Bazi Chart for 2018. Please note that I am simply reporting what I heard and learnt at the seminar. If you are at the seminar,  you may want to correct me if I made any errors in my writing.

Also, to understand what is written here, you need to have at least some very basic knowledge of the 5 elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood) and what a Bazi Chart is.  I won't go into details - you can easily google for 5 elements 101 and Bazi 101.

Below is the Bazi Chart for 2018.

Yin Fire (Day Master) born in the season of Wood (branch of Month Pillar) is considered very strong. However, this type of wood (Yang Wood) is hard to start the fire. Metal is needed to chop the wood, only then will the fire be bright.

Fire is considered strong (dominant) in this Chart.

There is Wu Earth (big rock or mountain) in the Chart. It's not easy for Wood to penetrate this big mountain. Looks like the wood has a lot of wealth but although it looks rich, actually it is not. So wood related industries will be headline news and popular. People will speculate in this industry but in the end, it is not really profitable.

Fire industries need to make money. They need to counter Metal but because Metal is hidden, Fire therefore becomes strong. At the end of the day, profit is even.

Precious Metal industries are hidden under the radar. Not much news on this industry as it's hidden, but there are actually lots of money here. Smart investors would therefore invest in the metal industries.

Water is one of the primary elements in 2018. There is no competition. Fire is the wealth of water element. So water industries like gaming, health and technology will be doing well in 2018.

In summary, the top three industries for 2018 will be
1. Wood
2. Fire
3. Earth

There will be political crisis in 2018. Yang Wood try to conquer Yang Earth pillar. Dog in the Chart represents fighting, armies and soldiers. There is lack of balance in the Chart.
Hidden yin metal means there will be security issues like terrorism.
Since Water represents freedom and there are lots of Earth countering the Water, freedom of the press will be suppressed in 2018.

Next, calamities for 2018.
War related conflicts is the major calamity in the Dog Year. Dog in the Chart generally means aggressiveness. Earth and Dog means there will be volatility. But will the war starts from North Korea? Joey said it's unlikely.

The Qi Men Chart for 2018 shows that North Korea has internal problem in 2018. As such, North Korea will be too busy handling its internal problem to fight with US. Also China and US will work together to suppress North Korea.

The 9 Star Fire enters the centre of the Chart this year. This means war will start from the Middle East. Yin Fire represents explosion and Metal hidden inside Dog represents bombs.

There will also be possibility of tsunami occurring in 2018. Since Fire is strong, things will heat up. Icebergs will melt causing water levels to rise resulting in flooding, excessive rain, heavy snow and tsunami.

Water represents movement but this movement is impeded by strong Earth. As such, there will most likely be transport issues in 2018.

As for illnesses, most common in 2018 will be joints and bones problems, prostate, gallbladder issues, indigestion, nerve problem and cardio related problems. This can be seen from the top four pillars of the Bazi Chart. However, Joey did not elaborate further.

Now we go to the 2018 Predictions for Malaysia.

First, we need to know how to come up with the Bazi Chart for Malaysia. Malaysia's date of birth (independence day) is 31 August, 1957. From this date, a Bazi Chart can be derived with the following details : Rooster year, Monkey month, Boar day and Horse hour.

Now superimpose the Malaysian Bazi Chart onto the Bazi Chart of the Year.

You will find that the elements from strongest to weakest are as follows
1. Fire
2. Wood
3. Metal
4. Earth
5. Water

The chart indicates that Property will not be good this year. It will be more of a buyers' market.
IT sector however looks good.

Now take a look at your own Personal Bazi Chart (PBC). If you do not have a PBC, you can plot it HERE. (you need to register first if you are a new user).

If you have Fire, 2018 will be a great year for you! If does not matter how the election turns out, whoever wins, you will still have a good year in 2018.

If no Fire, look for Wood in your PBC. If you have both Fire and Wood, you are extremely lucky!

If no Fire and Wood, look for Metal in your PBC. If you have Metal, then your 2018 will still be quite OK. Not fantastic, but OK.

More in Part 2 coming right up, so stay tuned! :)
