Golden Harvest Pumpkin – Where should i place it?


In Feng Shui, the pumpkin is a fruit symbolizing tremendous prosperity and abundance. It is believed that this fruit draws earth energy to manifest gold and is a favorite among chinese housewives to place the fruit to worship the Earth Wealth God.  Real Pumpkin from earth is therefore excellent representation of earth energy manifesting gold.

Pumpkin represent wealth, abundance in food supply and having luxurious clothes to wear. This enhancer is best placed in the SE wealth corner of your bedroom, living room or office to bring riches, speculative luck and descendants luck.

Prior Chinese Lunar New Year

Materials Required:

  • 3 New Frankincense incense sticks
  • 21 New Prosperity incenses sticks ( for 15 days )

Placing Pumpkin is alike to Receiving The Wealth Deity or  Wealth Energy.

接财神 through pumpkin can do any days before 初八. But i will prepare on the eve of the Chinese New Year.

Place till 十五 on the wealth/prosperity sector as stated in the year flying star chart.

Make sure before placement, everything used to make the pumpkin (plate , red paper , auspicious stickers, red ribbon..etc..) must be cleansed with 3 new Frankincense and 3 new Prosperity incenses.

During placement, burn down 3 new Prosperity incenses around the placement area.

During the placement period, to burn down 1 new Prosperity incense daily.

After 15th Day of the Chinese New Year

After the 15days of the Chinese lunar new year, i will shift my pumpkin to my wealth area. (This is optional). Personal Wealth area may not correspond to the year flying star area.  Make sure your wealth area is not inflicted with any negative stars of the year. If it is inflicted, then choose the next appropriate area. I will leave it until the pumpkin shows signs of rotting. My experience is it will last till Mooncake Festival or even after winter solstice if the placement area is positive.  I will dispose it even without rotting after winter solstice. 

Please charged the pumpkin with the following incenses after 15th Day of Chinese New Year

  1. 5 sticks Prosperity (or any money related incenses) 
  2. 5 sticks Amber
  3. 5 Sticks Kyphi
  4. 5 sticks Shambala
  5. 5 sticks Earth Incenses.
  6. 3 new Red and 3 new Green Charged Candles

All 25 sticks incenses and 6 candles to be burnt down together (I have burn down 25 incenses and 6 charged candles infront of my house corridor alley to reduce smoke around my apartment) I will usually burn down in the day. Do be reminded that your corridor needs to be cleanse with 3 sticks Frankincense first before burning down the five types incenses and 2 types of coloured charged candles mentioned above.

After all are burnt down, i will carry the pumpkin back to my apartment and place it in my house wealth area.

If you do not wish to continue to place the pumpkin after the 15th day, you can either cook it or plant it into a pumpkin tree in front of your house. Otherwise, you can simply dispose it by putting it into a plastic bag before throwing it away.

2015 Tai Sui – The Grand Duke

Great General Yang Xian is the Tai Sui or Grand Duke of Sheep/Goat year 2015. 

A brief history of the great General Yang Xian (杨仙). 33BingShenf1

Zodiac : Goat

Conflict with Goat

Clashes with Cow

Causing hurt with Cow, Dog

Incompatible with Rat

Damaging with Dog

Yi Wei “Tai sui” was born during the Song Dynasty at Zi Qi (淄齐), Shandong. His name was Yang Xian (杨仙).

Yang Xian, when young had an interest in divine studies and viewed fame and status of the materialistic world as superficial. He led a hermit life style and liked to travel across mountains. Yang Xian was able to assimilate with wild animals such as the leopards and tigers and played along with them while at the mountains as though they were birds and chickens. In the state of Ying Zhou (郢州) ,Hebei, someone by the name of Zhu Si Hu was in admiration of Yang Xian and invited him to stay with him. Yang Xian stayed there for a few years.

Yang Xian had the ability to predict things accurately and his words were always short and precise.

One day, Yang Xian said after drinking wine that he was going to leave the world and so he died without suffering from any pain or sickness. When Zhu Si Hu returned home, he went to the mountain to open up Yang Xian’s grave but found that the body was not inside. He later constructed a monument by the side of the grave in memory of him.

Which Animal Signs are in Conflict with 2015 Grand Duke?

Year 2015 is the year of the yin wood earth Goat/Sheep year. People who are born in the following animal signs are in conflict with Tai-Sui – Goat/Sheep, Ox/Cow, Rat and Dog. To avoid offending the Tai Sui, people do “An Tai Sui Ritual” (Pacifying Tai Sui Ritual) on every 1st and 15th day of Chinese Lunar Calendar. It is believed that improvement of health, luck, wealth, prosperity, family safety and helpful mentors supports will be granted.

Unlike conventional thinking, conflicting with Annual Year Tai Sui is not as bad as one may think. It merely means “CHANGES” or “MOTIONS” in your life. Collision with the Year Tai Sui generally refers to your birth year at the opposite end 地支六冲 something like North Pole vs South Pole. In advanced calculations, the roots of a person’s bazi day, month and time of birth are used to explore further about the events that is going to unfold for that year.

Emotional Changes

Changes in emotion reflects relationships in your life. It can be marriage e.g. getting marry or breakup or divorce good or bad depends on your Bazi Birth Configuration.

Career Changes

This is quite easy to understand it can mean getting a nice promotion or got fired, again depends on your Bazi Profile. That makes having your Bazi Reading so important.

Family Changes

This may mean relocation or even migration.

Wealth Changes

The good news will be buying a new investment property and the bad news may mean that you are selling the property at a lost or even going bankrupt.

Health Changes

Your health may take a bad turn and you have to be mindful of accidents or injuries.

All in all no matter what changes, it is wise to keep your head low and keep a “cool” attitude when dealing with these changes

Recommended cures 

1) Since this is a year of “motion” 变动 for you, instead of discouraging it, encourage it ! Be Active! Take for instance go for a well deserved holidays with your loved ones, find something that is personal to you or your family and celebrate with your friends and relatives e.g. birthday if other joyful celebrations (marriage) are not possible. In Chinese classical wisdom there is this principle call 一喜挡三灾

2)Choose to get involve and attend jubilant celebrations as many as possible. You can rub some positive energies from people who are happy.

3) Avoid attending sad sad ceremonies if you can help it.

4) Since this is a year of Changes for you, try to make objective decisions based on logical reasons and not emotions. If you really wanted to make a major decision such as investment, career switch, start your business consider having a 2nd opinion (that are not in conflict with tai sui).

5) Wearing of personal talisman that improves your luck, this is the general guideline for respective Chinese astrology signs, however my advice is to consider checking with your bazi before going ahead. These are the compatible combo that act as partners to uplift your luck in dire times. I have also separated those born in the first half of the year from February to July and those born in the 2nd half from August to January. What i am trying to do here is based on my “best guess” of your favourable element using season as the parameter in the absence of Bazi Reading.

For those who are born in the first half of the year try to use gold or silver or white gold or steel as the substance choice. As for those born in the 2nd half use jade as the preferred material. If you feel there are improvements in your life kindly contribute some money to a Charity organisation of your choice.

6) If things are really not going your way, you may wish to do up your home feng shui or office feng shui. Sometimes it may be you make some wrong choices with your home placement and others and not because of Tai Sui. There are so many variables that influence one’s life and it is really impossible to cover all angles!

7) Do Charity work. For example provide financial aid to those needy that cannot afford funeral expenses.

8) Do a thorough health check on your body before the year commences i.e. 2nd half of January 2015. Send your car for check-up too to prevent accidents.

9) Donate blood 

10) Look into Year 2015 feng shui for your house

Elemental FengShui Guidelines for 2015

1) Economy Instability – One can envisage that the imbalance of the five elements represents instability of the World economy and changes are drastic. One of the noteworthy symbolism of Astrology sign “Goat” is the cohesiveness and team spirit. Quite often one can come across the following wording: “The creative side of the Wooden Goat; its diligence applied to hard work ensures prosperity”… Let’s agree words like these don’t leave any room for doubt when it comes to the future wellbeing.

2) Upsurging Environmental issues – Increased concern over agriculture problems like viral diseases from vegetable crops, deforestation, forest fires and so forth.

Have a prosperous and blessed 2015.



The Chinese Timing

There is a time for everything’ – this ageless advice is mentioned and preached across all beliefs and faiths and cannot be more appropriate than to be applied to our daily lives.

Conventional choice of dates for everything, from moving homes to a wedding, calls for precise considerations besides good weather and convenient travel conditions.

Chinese wisdom holds that the beginning of an event is a crucial moment, which contains within it the seeds of what is to unfold. It pays to give attention to choose the right date to sign an agreement, negotiate a deal or propose to your future wife. The thin line between making money and losing out in the markets is largely all about timing.

Numerous systems of date selections have emerged from different cultures and practices.

One outstanding method makes use of the space and time dimension of calculating a perfect time and calls for the analysis of a person’s time of birth.

This widely respected method is still in use today and is based on the information of the Chinese Almanac. It derives that a person’s birth chart contains elements that either enhances or clashes with that of a chosen day.

The chinese timing are divided into 12 periods, each 2 hours long. The chinese day commence at 11 pm the night before. These are the corresponding time:

Chinese periods Hours
子(zi) 11pm to 1 am
丑(chou) 1am to 3 am
寅(yin) 3am to 5 am
卯(mao) 5am to 7am
辰(chen) 7am to 9am
巳(si) 9am to 11am
午(wu) 11am to 1pm
未(wei) 1pm to 3pm
申(shen) 3pm to 5pm
酉(you) 5pm to 7pm
戌(xu) 7pm to 9pm
亥(hai) 9pm to 11pm
