2014之好风水关键字为“贵多一点”，并把该年曾为“贵气年” (The Noble Year)。好风水预测在此年里百物之价格皆“贵多一点”，通货膨涨！
The Year of the Wood Horse, shall begin from the 4th of February, 2014 at 6:03am. This auspicious, new year carries the Wood element in its Heavenly Stem and the Fire element in its Earthly Branch. In this particular year, the auspicious sectors are the East and West sectors. However, the North is an inauspicious sector due to the arrival of the Three Killings qi. Hence the North sector within the house or office premise must not be renovated nor disturbed by any ground-breaking or similar activities as this is likely to lead to clashing or negative consequences.
The Xun Gua, being the Number 4-Green Star, will arrive in the centre sector in the Annual Flying Stars chart for Year 2014. Xun is associated with The Wind, and as such Good Feng Shui foresees that in this particular year, incidents of ferocious, heavy downpours, storms and hurricanes will occur more frequently, especially in the East and Northwest regions and countries, result in floods, earthquakes and landslides. Precautionary steps must be taken for one’s home and also before traveling.
The Number 4-Green Star is of the Wood element, and thereby clashes with the Number 5-Yellow Earth Star found in the centre sector of the Flying Stars chart for the 8th Feng Shui Period. Moreover, the yearly elements, being excessive with strong Wood and Fire elements, cause the Earth element to become scorched, thus this situation brings about challenges to the land and property sectors in 2014.
2014 will be a Peach Blossom year, and Good Feng Shui foresees that there will be lots of couples lining up for marriages, moving into new houses, having babies and other great celebratory events. This likely translates to good business for bridal shops, restaurants, hospitals, obstetricians, gynaecologists, paediatricians, and businesses or sectors related to renovation and painting. The general public will also receive wedding invitations from family members and friends more frequently than usual ! Thus one can leverage the opportunities arising in order to benefit throughout the whole year.
Due to the existence of stronger Wood element, and moreover the Number Four-Geen Star will occupy the center sector, thus Green colour is the most influential colour in this particular year.
The earlier-mentioned clash between the Annual Number-4-Green Star and the Number-5-Yellow Star found in the center sector of the 8th Feng Shui Period’s Flying Stars chart. The Number 2-Black Star occupies the East sector, it clashes with the Wood element found in the East sector, thus it also causes sicknesses that are related to the digestive system, liver and gall-bladder. Dengue fever, hand-foot-mouth diseases will rampantly occur in the Eastern sectors of tropical countries.In particular, young females and elderly women will be more vulnerable to such sicknesses.
Due to the Number 5-Yellow star occupies the Northwest sector, elderly man should be more careful in their head, lung and respiratory systems. Thus within their families, they will require more attention and extra care.
Good Feng Shui’s analysis on the 2014 yearly BaZi and the "Yu" Gua (豫卦) shows that the Wealth and Nobleman Stars are present for the year. However, there are also indications of disasters, bloodshed, fights, lawsuits, troublemakers, turmoils, and mixed fortunes. It will be especially unfavourable for Earth-related industries (for example, land and property, construction). With additional efforts and better management skills, we shall be able to benefit from the year too.
As the saying goes, “In order to get the best performance out of a horse, one needs to look for Bo Le, i.e. the expert horse trainer”. Hence, in order to really make profits in the Wood Horse Year of 2014, one must choose wisely in working closely with high-quality partners with good acumen, or find the Nobleman in one’s birth sign for support. With assistance and support from powers of others, one may take one’s fortunes to a higher level!
The 2014 Good Feng Shui Keywords of the Year is "Noble and More Expensive a Bit" and the the is termed as "The Year of Noble Year". Good Feng Shui foresees that the prices of all goods will be inflated in 2014 thus causing higher inflation rate.
The first half of the year signifies wealth losses, especially with regards to agricultural land, properties, estates, and high-rise units undergoing price adjustments and experiencing difficulty in selling. However, this period of time may still tend to benefit those with previous intentions of purchasing real estate, but had not been able to do so due to being unable to keep up with rising property prices. At this time, a lot of real estate properties and the further emergence of high-rise units could provide ample selection for potential purchasers.
However, with banks imposing stricter lending guidelines for property loans, this may still prove to be a deterrence and properties may still be difficult to sell off, and the general sentiment could be that of continued unease.
Nonetheless, for landed properties found in locations with good feng shui and outstanding designs, there remains room for increases in value, although any such increase would only be gradual in nature.
In the middle of the year, marriages, childbirths and other celebratory events will be seen everywhere. But the Wealth Loss Star is also present during this time of the year, and its appearance serves as a reminder to guard against any careless or excessive spending or any other possible losses during the planning, preparations or during the actual events such as wedding receptions, relocations, housing or corporate renovations or any other endeavours in which finances are involved.
The Northwest and East sectors of homes and offices play host to the 2014’s annual Unfavourable Stars. Due to this, any furnishings or decorations in red, yellow or brown are to be avoided. On the contrary, painting with blue or white colours in these two sectors can help mitigate the evil influences of the unfavourable stars.
The arrival of the Number-4-Green Star, which is a Peace Blossom Star, into the all-important centre palace of the Flying Stars Chart of Year 2014 signifies that the year is a Major Peach Blossom Year. Many single people will finally find a mate, unmarried couples may finally announce their marriages. However, one should also take great care to avoid the downside from the Peace Blossom effects, as married people could tend to have extramarital affairs leading to family discord. Politicians and businessmen could lose their positions and wealth due to love affairs, and this could even lead to scandals! In this year, painting or decorating the home or office’s Centre sector with the Green colour, can help boosting the academic progress and business fortunes of its occupants, while also improving their creative thinking abilities.
Due to the overwhelming influence of the Wood and Fire elements of the year, most people will pay more attention to health and wellness. The year’s weather will affect the liver and gallbladder, stomach, kidneys, blood, heart, respiratory systems and related diseases. Those with worries of such latent diseases should pay more attention to taking good care of their health and daily diets. The year will also see more people placing emphasis on detoxifying the liver and gallbladder. As such industries related to this aspect will see great gains.
Those with sensitive skin, weaknesses in their liver, gallbladder, or stomaches, nervous system disorders, strained eyesights must also intensify the maintenance of their health, because the year’s Qi is unfavourable for human organs related to the above.
In the months of March, June, September, December 2014 as well as January of 2015, there will tend to be infectious diseases or epidemic plague lurking around, thus adults and children would do well to pay extra attention with regards to personal cleanliness and health, travel plans, choice of diets. Family health and fortune can be improved this year by painting the East sector of the home with Green in combination with Blue as the dominant colour.
In 2014’s Year of the Wooden Horse, agricultural crops are likely to see a bumper harvest. Certain regions may experience unstable climates such as floods, storms or droughts slightly affecting the harvest, but on the overall it will still be a year of better harvests than most, ultimately benefitting all segments of society.
The months of June, July, December 2014 and January 2015 may see incidents of politicians or superstars falling suddenly from grace. Regions in the East should be on high alert against outbreaks of diseases, as the Sickness Star arrives in this region. The Northeast region could be prone to riots, while the Southeast region is likely to see disputes and legal embattlements. As such, before investing in the stock market or real estate properties, one must take all these into consideration when performing market analysis and decision-making. Planning ahead and market research are essential in order to order to avoid the loss of money.
The first half of 2014 will see the stock market and real estate market becoming soft, but as long as market research homework is properly done, and wise choices are made to invest in visionary, reputable companies, or real estate properties having good location and Feng Shui, the opportunities remain promising. Even in situations where the trend is soft, the ability to grasp opportunities to discover reasonably-priced, high-quality real estate properties will result in worthwhile returns when the economy recovers and the markets rally in the third quarter.
For those purchasing or investing in real estate during the first half of the year, there will be relatively better choices and more options, in additional to the price being more affordable. However, regardless of whether it is the housing market or the stock market, investors must still proceed cautiously every step of the way, applying one’s own wisdom to avert crisis, looking for quality housing developers and development areas, in order to uncover more opportunities, and hitting the target accurately. Regardless of how tumultuous the market could be, the ever-growing population and the limited availability of land, landed properties remain the best choice for long-term investment.
The unfavourable Number 5-Yellow Star for the year 2014 descends upon the Northwest’s Qian palace. As such, any renovations or ground-breaking should be avoided in this sector, for it would invite disaster. If the main door, or any other door, is located in this sector, then it is also important to rectify the situation. Should the Fengshui layout be poorly-designed, the negative influences of the unfavourable star will run rampant and this could mean imminent calamity for the occupants of the house.
Within this year, one should avoid excessive decorations or paint having the Red or Yellow colours in the Northwest sector of the home or office. Instead, the recommendation for this sector is to have it painted Blue or Whiten order to ward off unwanted effects from the Number 5-Yellow Star. Avoid placing any aquariums or moving water features, in order to avoid triggering negative energies within the sector.
At present, we are still in the Eighth Feng Shui Cycle. The primary Annual Star for 2014, the Number 4-Green Star is a mixture of good and bad fortunes, and also symbolizes Arts and Culture. Based on this, Master Kenny Hoo predicts that in 2014’s Wood Horse year, there will be literary talents emerging, many bright potentials will pass their examinations, to step into rewarding careers in the Arts and Culture. However, because this will also be a Major Peace Blossom year, promiscuous love affairs, accidents and casualties can occur frequently. As such, all matters should be dealt with great caution.
The pace of China’s economic recovery will also continue to precede the ups and downs of the global economy. Of late, we have been witnessing the impact of China on the world economy, and this trend will continue in 2014, leading the world economy towards positive development.
Japan, India, and Indonesia's economies will face grim challenges. Continuing to stimulate domestic demand will be the primary task of these countries, however, Japan and India are likely to have to deal with the predicament of sustaining domestic demand later on.
As for the economic situation in Europe and the United States in 2014, although there are signs of taking a turn for the better, there still remains much work to be done for further improvement. Massive debt problems, coupled with persistently high unemployment rate in the two regions, remain as the foremost issues to resolve. Political disputes, undermined public security and terrorism continues to bring pressure and hinder economic recovery for the United States and nations worldwide.
Good Feng Shui foresees that in 2014 Wood Horse year：
In the first half of the year, land and property prices, and their rental rates shall turn softer. Some areas will face stagnancy in the property transactions, especially amongst high-rise condominiums and office blocks. The excess in the supply will lead to the situation of sellers outnumbering buyers. Only upon entering the third quarter, would the market gradually be more stable. Therefore, those who are keen on acquiring or investing in new properties, will have more and better choices in terms of prices and quality.
The prices of gold, iron, copper, steel and other metal-, petroleum-related products are likely to be unstable.
Various currencies exchange rates to be volatile, higher inflation rates leading to the increase in prices of goods burden the general public.
Bank interest rates continue to be on the low side even though it will gradually increase, and this usually serves as a catalyst for the stock market. For property investors who are have already committed on investments, this would be welcome news to be able to avoid higher costs during times of economic recession. However, stricter lending conditions imposed by banks could also lead to borrowers turning to illegal lenders.
Extreme weather conditions will be encountered, with exceptionally high rainfall recorded around the world with rainfalls leading to flood, and unusual imbalance in temperatures.
Landslides, floods, earthquakes, typhoons, tsunamis and infectious diseases are amongst potential disasters that could await countries and regions in the East and Northwest, such as Japan, India, China, Western Europe, North America, California and other regions, especially in the months prior to September.
From Good Feng Shui’s viewpoint, the Early Heaven wealth luck brought forth by the Year 2014 will just be fairly general and unexceptional. Therefore, in this year, one should identify beneficial and noble working partners to face and conquer any challenges together, and move forward to explore new opportunities ahead.
Those involved in Wood- and Fire-related industries, such as plantation, oil palm, rubber, glove, education, tyre, petroleum, electrical, energy, entertainment, restaurant, etc. will have greater business opportunities, thus more aggressive and active business plans and operations will lead to greater harvests in this particular year.
Whereas Metal- and Water-related industries, such as the banking, finance, steel, gold, car, traveling, hotel, drinks, fishery, paints, etc., will face influences from various external uncertainties. However, by working together hand-in-hand with the noble working-partners in investment, business creation or maintenance, will eventually attain greater success.
On the other hand, businesses related to the Earth-related industries, such as land, property, construction, mining, etc. would have to be more patient, to step up efforts, re-plan or re-structure investment portfolio in order to generate greater success and attain new horizons.
The most influential Good Feng Shui colour in the year of 2014 is the Green colour. The colour Green can give a tremendous boost to the positive Qi of the Number 9-Purple Star that is located in the North sector of the house or office. Painting a feature wall in the North sector of the house or company with mainly Green colour and mixing where appropriate with some Purple or Red colours, can bring forth plenty of positive energies and greater fortunes to promote good health, wealth, harmony and prosperity in year 2014.
Having a feature wall painted in the South sector of the house or office premises with Light Yellow or Brown colours, can also bring forth lots of positive energy and greater fortune that promotes good wealth and prosperity in year 2014. As for the Southeast sector, painting a Purple or Reddish colour feature wall in this sector can help to avoid legal issues or arguments with others.
Last but not least, Kenny Hoo and Good Feng Shui wish everyone to have GOOD FENG SHUI, GOOD HEALTH, GREAT BUSINESS and PROPESRITY in the year ahead!
