Retrograde planets

Retrograde planets display an erratic motion which is linked to delays, recurrences, returns to previous conditions, reversals of events, and unexpected events occurring suddenly or becoming more dramatic and intense. A Mercury retrograde period is a difficult time to begin new projects linked to communication, networking, information-flow and travel. Extra caution is needed to ensure that messages are clearly understood and delivered; this often involves slowing things down and ensuring that compromises are not made for the sake of speed. Mercury retrograde reminds us that efficiency is built upon stability, so think of it as a maintenance period, ideal for revisiting old problems that call for action but lay ignored. If communication problems exist, Mercury retrograde will bring them back to your attention. By taking time out to resolve them now you will be better equipped to make smooth progress in the future. Mercury experiences a retrograde cycle about once every 4 months, and remains retrograde for about 3 weeks.

A Preview of 2009 Year of the Ox

By Feng Shui Master Peter Leung
Time comes and goes without a trace; we will celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year on January 26, 2009. We will say "Kung Hay Fat Choy" to everyone we meet and wish them the best in the coming year.
I have made my annual prediction public since 2004; it becomes part of my yearly research and advice for my students and clients from all over the world. People tell me they eagerly await the release of my predictions each year.
The year of the Rat will be replaced by the year of the Ox based on the 12 Chinese zodiac sign sequence. By Chinese custom we will celebrate the New Year on the first day of the year based on the lunar calendar; however in Feng Shui and Bazi we will start the New Year at 00:50 on February 4, 2009 based on the Gregorian calendar.
Every year, it is very nerve wracking for me to write the prediction, sometimes I just hope I do not get it right. I sincerely hope everyone will have a prosperous year with no major setbacks or surprises from my prediction.
Year 2009 is the year of the Ox, Ji Chou year. The yearly hexagram is Guan gua. The annual flying star in the central palace is #9 and #5 in the north. The troublesome San Sha will be in the east for 2009.
Guan gua is the 20th hexagram in the I Ching, Xun trigram on top of Kun trigram; the wind breezes across the Earth and affects everything in its path. The policy from the top will affect those below. A gentle breeze will be comforting, a hurricane will be devastating.
Guan Gua is a hexagram which indicates a downward trend following extreme prosperity. This year, it will be important for government officials to establish trust from the people who are struggling by being respectful, serious, just, honest and compassionate with the people they serve. They must pay attention to their actions and promises, continually reflecting and monitoring the results with assistance from elders, senior staff members and those with the wisdom and knowledge to offer valuable advice.
The teaching of Guan gua is to observe, to look into, to show, to exhibit, to demonstrate with respect and compassion in order to gain others’ trust.
It has been an eventful 2008 with the Si Chuan earthquake, building collapses, worldwide flooding, mudslides, demonstrations, the Beijing Olympics, the US housing meltdown, the record oil prices, the global financial/economic crisis with government bailouts and the US election of Barack Obama as the first African-American president.
2009 should be a year for “change” with a newer generation of world leaders who may be preoccupied with the possible recession we may face worldwide. It will require all world leaders to work together to deal with this crisis or we may plunge into the most devastating depression since the 1930s. From all the economic data today, 2009 certainly looks very grim. Everyone involved in the stock market is asking if we have hit the bottom. Based on my research on the worldwide stock market indices and using Huang Zhi Qing Shi’s monthly hexagrams, I believe we should bottom out around September or October 2009.
Ji Chou is earth over earth. I foresee government infrastructure and social projects which will create jobs for the construction industry and their suppliers.
Oil has been dropping since it reached $147.00 USD per barrel, therefore oil, natural gas, and coal should be a good investment for 2009.
I would recommend investment in the agricultural commodities such as wheat, soybean, fertilizer and farm equipments.
There should be plenty of investment opportunities in a bear market if you know the secret of trading stocks.
2009 will be good financially for those born in the year of the Rat, Ox, Snake and Rooster, as well as those born in Jia or Ji years. Perhaps this will be a good time to buy a house. For those born in the year of the Horse, Sheep or Dog, you may lose money this year or move this year. You also need to pay attention to your parents.
For those born during Zi, Chou, Si and You hours 2009 can be good for career or study. There is also a good possibility of having a baby. For those who are born during Wu, Wei and Xu hours 2009 may be a tough year for career or study. Take a trip if you can.
With San Sha in the east this year, we need to pay attention to the liver, blood circulation and blood pressure. In addition we need to be aware of potential problems with limbs and emotions. Also, pay attention to young males and females.
Extreme care should be exercised if you try to disturb the east. It can bring about tragedies as serious as death and bankruptcy. Be careful if your house door or bedroom is located in the east or faces east. Also if there is any disturbance, outside sharp objects or sha qi coming from the east you should be careful.
To minimize the “San Sha” effect, you can place a real plant or tree in the eastern sector, either inside or outside the house, you can also put a little bucket of water and 3 metal kiluns (facing east) with the tree. (There is a high level Feng Shui technique called “Fighting the San Sha” which can bring in money. Contact us if you need such a service to turn a rock bottom situation around.)
Tai Sui will be in Chou, northeast. Simply placing a pair of kilun in Chou mountain facing northeast may help to guard against the bad energy from that direction.
This year’s annual Flying Star chart will have number 9 in the centre, 1 in the northwest, 2 in the west, 3 in the northeast, 4 in the south, 5 in the north, 6 in the southwest, 7 in the east and 8 in the southeast.
Every home can be a safer home if we know how to deal with the yearly stars and shen sha and avoid doing the wrong thing in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is better to be prepared now than be sorry later.
To minimize the annual 5 yellow in the north, the “salt water and coins” cure can be used.
To minimize the annual 2 black to avoid sickness, simply place a metal calabash in the west of the house.
To minimize the annual 3 jade-green to avoid arguments and being emotional, put something red in the northeast.
To minimize the annual 7 red to avoid lawsuits, put something blue in the east.
The southeast will be the best sector in 2008 with the annual 8 white, simply put a citron crystal there for a better year financially.
Put 4 stalks of Chinese lucky bamboo or a plant in the northwest of the house to enhance the possibility of career advancement, improved academic studies or heightened romance.
Put a glass of water in the south for the possibility of career advancement, improved academic studies or heightened romance.
Putting a plant in the center of the house can bring about events for celebration.
Besides the above precautions for 2009, most people do not realize that disturbances, building, construction and renovation around or inside the house during 2009 without picking a date and time to do it can cause problems. Construction or renovations would be good in the south, southwest, west and northwest.
Wishing everyone a prosperous, successful and safe New Year in 2009,
Peter Leung

Prayer to stop Bleeding

This is from my friend Betty:
Wanted to share this with you:
Growing up I remember my family talking about a scripture that would stop bleeding. Of course, my family wasn't the most church-going folks, but they were God-loving, God-fearing Christians. They were also superstitious in saying only a man could read the scripture to a woman and vice versa, which I sincerely doubted. If God put it there, he put it there for our Faith and anyone who truly believed could use it.After I came to this area, I remembered to ask Daddy about that scripture. It is Ezekiel 16:6. (From King James Version:) "And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live"I have used it several times over the years saying it with Faith repeating at least 3 times to stop a heavy nosebleed, etc., and always, the bleeding stops. Today Heidi sent me a text message asking for me to share the scripture. Her boyfriend's frail grandmother had a severe nosebleed and they couldn't stop it. Now you know that Heidi is a veterinary technician and she definitely knows how to stop bleeding, (even though Grandma has only 2 legs, not 4)…...but they had no luck and were about to call 911. I texted them my version of the words (from my memory) both Heidi and Josh's cell phones, saying pray this with Faith, repeating it at least 3 times and Believe!
5 minutes later, she sent me a text back that the bleeding had completely stopped! Yes, Miracles still happen. That scripture is definitely worth committing to memory. Usually when you need it, it's in a hurry and you don't have time to Google for the scripture, and you don't have to say the words verbatim as long as you have the meaning.

Join us for our annual New Year's Prophecy Service where guides from the spirit realm give us information of what can be expected in the coming year (and beyond), and how we can prepare our selves individually and as a group for the coming times.
At the end of the session there will be time for individuals to ask questions related to the coming prophecies. For 3 years, the financial crisis of 2008 was predicted to occur in the last 6 months of the current administration, and the reasons for the crisis were given.
Prophecies are not dark and foreboding, but rather practical insights into what the future holds based on current patterns and conditions in both the physical and metaphysical realms. For the 'less than pleasant' insights, we are usually given advice on how to best prepare for, or completely avoid them when possible.Prophecies are not meant to create fear, but to give knowledge.
