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.

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.
