Flying Star & 24 Mountain Chart for the Rat in 2016

The Rat in 2016 has to face challenges brought by the violent winds of the year’s Flying Star chart, which brings the dreaded #7 into your sector. The Flying Star #7 is an unlucky star which brings treachery, violence and even bloodshed. Fortunately this year, the volatile 7 is considerably weakened as it flies into the North sector of Water which exhausts the Metal energy of the #7. Nevertheless, the Rat must still play safe and subdue this vicious star for a smoother and less aggravating year. The Blue Rhinoceros and Elephant cure has been shown to be the most effective for this purpose.

In the 24 Mountains Chart, the North sector of the Rat is afflicted with the 3 Killings and Yin Star which can create problems. These stars bring bad news so the Rat should be mindful of these afflictions, especially the Yin House Star which is associated with death. Remember to keep the very sick or elderly away from the North sector. Boost the yang energy of this sector with music, activities and bright lights. In 2016, the dreaded 3 Killings are in the South which means the North is also adversely affected as a facing direction. The best cure for these 3 types of sha is the 3 Divine Guardians of Pi Yao, Fu Dog and Chi Lin; place the celestial trio in the North sector, facing South

Though the Flying Stars and 24 Mountains provide a general luck indication of each animal sign, the personal outlook of every person is also dependent on the heavenly stem element of his year of birth. The following chart summarizes the luck profile of the different element Rats, based on their year of birth.

Wood (plants, green or brown colors) and Earth (Crystals, brown or yellow colors) cures can be used by the Fire and Metal Rats respectively to improve their personal wealth luck.
