The Year of Monkey of 2016 is represented by Yang Fire sitting on top of Metal Monkey. What will be in store for the year? Many feng shui masters have predicted a very challenging year as there are fire and metal clashes in the year based on the cycle of birth and destruction. Fire clashes metal hence indicating conflicts and disharmony in 2016 in international scenes and locally. Please also read my blog on “Assessment of Wealth Capacity‘.
Yang Fire is often compared to the Sun. Yang Fire people are persistent, warm-hearted, passionate, open-minded, straight-forward, quick temper, impulsive and outspoken. Famous Yang Fire people are Steve Jobs, Russell Crowe, Albert Einstein, J.K. Rowling, Paris Hilton, Sandra Bullock, Alfred Hitchcock, Adolf Hitler. Please print your Bazi chart here.
The fire element also represents happiness and optimism. The Chinese calendar is based on a 60-year cycle. The last Bing Fire Monkey Year was in 1956. In 1956, many singers and actress became superstars like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Doris Day, to name a few and was a great year for entertainment. Likewise, we can expect 2016 to be a great year for entertainment.
The Monkey is a strong metal element and hidden inside is Yang Metal, Yang Water, and Yang Earth. Yang Metal is like an axe or sword. Yang water is strong ocean water. In Bazi theory, Monkey clashes against the Tiger. When the Tiger clashes against the Monkey happen, it normally resulted in car accidents. Hence, chances of accidents are higher for those with Tiger signs in their Hour, Day, Month and Year in their Bazi Chart. Please exercise caution when you drive and ensure you have adequate coverage for personal accident and car insurance policy.
However, I would like to emphasize more on the health aspects in 2016. It is important that we stay fit and healthy in order to achieve our goals in 2016.
In Bazi, Yang Fire represents the sun and in health analysis refers to the heart, blood circulation and eyes. In 2016 which is a Fire and Metal clash year, chances of sickness relate to heart, blood, intestines, eyes, and inflammation problem will be higher compare to other sickness. Metal in the human organ is related to lung and breathing organ. With fire-metal clash, there is a chance of flu and other breathing organ or skin problems.
I like to highlight that the flying star 2 which symbolizes sickness is in the center in 2016 which means that sickness will be the main theme for 2016. It is predicted that there is a possibility of the flu pandemic or outbreak of a certain disease in the Middle East, China, and Central Europe. I would recommend that you go for your yearly medical check up, have sufficient sleep and rest, exercise, reduce intake of fried, oily and unhealthy foods, take suitable supplements like antioxidant, vitamin C, omega 3 oil and others health products to improve our immune system.
For the last 3 years from 2013 to 2015, fire and earth elements were quite dominant. Fire is blood circulation, carbohydrate, sugar and earth are stomach and muscles. Hence, in those years, people gained weight easily. In 2016, the arrival of the metal element is a good chance to exhaust the excessive earth we gained in the last few years. 2016 is a good year to do more exercise and start a diet program to lose weight. We have two years to do that in the Year of Monkey and Rooster to reduce our weight and excess fats.
Based on the above table and our Bazi Charts, we can tell which part of the body is the weakest and most susceptible to disease or sickness. For instance, if the wood element is the weakest in a person’s pillars, it means that person is most likely to have health issues related to the liver, pancreas or other organs symbolized by that element. If the wood element is vital in the chart or it plays the role of life supporter, maintaining harmony among the other elements, a concentrated attack on it or it becomes excessively strong and cause the imbalance in the chart, this will lead often to death. The harmony amongst the elements in the chart is important to good health.
Let us do a health analysis using Chart of Steve Job –
His day master was Bing or Yang Fire. He was born in the season of spring where wood is prosperous and fire is strong. He was considered a strong Yang Fire. A strong day master favors Output(Earth), Wealth(Metal) and Influence elements(Water). Output elements are the earth stars i.e. Eating God(EG) and Hurting Officer(HO) stars. His EG star was strongly rooted in Chen Dragon, Wei Goat, and Yin Tiger. There are many output stars in his chart. The strong output stars gave him the creativity, skills, intelligence and talent of an innovator and inventor. The many EG stars in his chart indicated that he was a perfectionist and had many innovative ideas. His eccentricity was also due to the many EG stars in his chart. The Indirect Resource or IR star also gave him the ability to think of the box which led to the invention of innovative products. It is worth noting that his chart did not have any wealth stars or metal element which is one of his favorable elements based on his three known pillars. In the absence of wealth stars, he had to depend on his output stars which represent creativity, talents, skills and intelligence to create wealth.
The fire element also represents passion and persistence in a person character. It was his passion, creativity, talents and persistence that led him to the invention of Apple computers, NeXT computers, Macintosh computers, iMac, iPod, iPad, and iPhone. The other favorable element is water which represent status and power which gave him the major control of Apple Inc, Apple’s products and his CEO status.
Jobs was also known for his consummate skill at persuasion and salesmanship, which has been dubbed the “reality distortion field” which is represented by his strong Yin Wood which was his resource star in his Day and Year Pillar in his Bazi chart.
A strong fire chart does not want to see self-element, fire element or Friend star and wood element or Resource stars. There is a partial seasonal combo of wood in Yin Tiger-Chen Dragon with Yin Wood protruding in the Year stem which produced more wood. The excessive wood elements caused the imbalance in the chart and led to illness related to his pancreas later on.
Let us check the Luck Pillar of Steve Job-
At the age of 47 to 56 years old, he was in his Luck Pillar of Gui or Yin Water over You Rooster or Yin Metal period. Gui or Yin water in the Luck Pillar combined with Wu or Yang Earth in the month pillar to form fire star with the support of Yang Wood in Tiger month in his natal chart. The combination caused Wu or Yang Earth, the favorable element to disappear and added the negative element of fire to the chart which caused the imbalance in the chart. The additional wood generated from the partial seasonal combination of Yin Tiger-Chen Dragon aggravated the imbalance in the chart as there was no outlet to release his excess Fire and Wood energy in the form of earth as the earth element was combined away. In October 2003, Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This was the start of his long battle with cancer. It was reported that Jobs resisted his doctors’ recommendations for medical intervention for nine months instead relying on alternative treatment, he tried a vegan diet, acupuncture, herbal remedies, fruit juices and others that led to an unnecessarily early death. All these alternative treatments are related to the wood element which was his unfavorable element. If he had opted for surgery earlier, the result could have been different as surgery which involved knives and scalpels were related to metal element which was his favorable element.
Jobs died at his home around 3 pm on October 5, 2011, because of complications from a relapse of his pancreatic cancer resulting in respiratory arrest. The chart on the day of his death was a configuration of strong metal elements. The strong Yang Metal in the Hour Pillar at the time of his death was like an axe or sword attacking his wood, his pancreas in the Yin Tiger in the Month Pillar of his natal chart which sadly ended the life of a charismatic and legendary inventor.
