Happy Chinese Niu (牛) Year!

26 January 2009
 

Happy Chinese Niu () Year!

According to The Sequence of the Universe (《皇极经世》), formulated by Shao Kangjie (邵康节), one of the top I Ching masters in Chinese history, year 2009 corresponds with the 20th I China diagram: Observation (风地观), in which the wind (Wood in Five Agents) blows across the land (Earth in Five Agents).

In this regard, it is a year when one needs to exercise extra cautions against making rash decisions and taking hasty actions; on the other hand, it is also a good time to undertake appropriate investigations, examinations, evaluations or deliberations, and to set up strategic preparations for the actions in the coming Tiger year.

Some contemporary Chinese I Ching masters believe that in this year we may be able to witness a great cultural progress, while facing many difficulties in business sectors that are heavily associated with Earth element.

Further, as 2009 is strongly featured with yin Earth in both its celestial stem and terrestrial branch, the energy of Fire will slowly deplete, which could help cooling down some conflict hot spots around the world.

The collective destiny of a family, a nation and the entire world works in a way similar to how an individual's fate is decided. It only reflects what would come to us if we do not alter our customed course of actions.
