As a gentle reminder, in August, we expect 2016 year’s energy to really kick in, as this Monkey month has the same Bing Shen 2016 energies.
Chinese Year 2016 started on 4 February 2016 and lasts to 4 February 2017. It is to be compared with the year 1956 and its affairs. It brings us the elements and landscape of Yang Fire (the bright sun), Yang Metal (the tank or ax), Yang Water (the great lake or wild river) and Yang Earth (the huge mountain).
In the world, it is likely to be a turbulent year, because we see the most dominant elements in Fire Monkey Year as Fire on Metal, like a ‘bomb or a battlefield’. So we rather predict a troubled year: disagreements, eruptions, explosions, plane crashes, revolution, war, fighting, bombing, a challenge for people who are in power, escalating temperaments. And in our own environment, we may expect this scenario on a smaller level . Unfortunately, it has proven until now….the world indeed is in turbulence…!
The bright side of Fire is also the ‘spiritual path’ and other important world issues we will experience concern mental wellbeing, world peace, cooperation, meditation, NLP and self-improvement.
Fire, Metal and Wood – the Sun warmes the trees to make them grow – are the strongest elements in 2016, and if these are auspicious elements in your personal BaZi chart, you have a prosperous time. Metal represents wealth and you may expect wealth coming your way in 2016.
If we analyse Bing Shen in a personal chart as a day pillar, we see a smart person as it carries the intelligence or Academic star. These people are visionaries, sincerely, humorous and smart and gain a good reputation when they work in business or as entrepreneurs. Even though they might face some hard times in their early life, they will succeed when they are older and enjoy a convenient life.
Being seated on a wealth star – Yang Metal – they will be able to make money, however, it will be more irregular income, like from investments, inheritance, marrying, gambling etc.
They see Yang Water in their pillar, which gives Yang Fire, the great sun, the possibility to reflect themselves and become twice as strong. Yang Water gives them the opportunity to take some risks in future opportunities and go out and get things done, the fighters or front guys in business…though it is a hidden characteristic, they surely have the possibility to be successful and famous in their lives.
Another hidden element, Wu Earth represents the elegant, smart, intelligent creative person who likes to work for a brighter and better future. Albert Einstein had a Bing Shen Day Pillar and was surely a visionair who gave the world much to think about and still is one of the best scientists ever.
