The time calculation in ancient Chinese calendar used for feng shui and farming activities, is using the dimension of time in which hours, days, months and years are divided into two parts of energy (氣), namely heavenly and earthly energy, so that one dimension of time can contain eight types of energy consisting of 4 heavenly energy and 4 earthly energy. This calendar system always starts from the beginning of Spring which usually starts around February 4 or 5.
In Chinese metaphysical perspective, this time dimension is very influential on someone where this time dimension changes its pattern per 20 years. What makes you lucky now is not necessarily going to happen in the next 20 years. Why 20 years? This is because the time dimension is influenced by the two largest planets in the solar system, namely the planets Saturn and Jupiter, where the crossing or meeting of these two large structures occurs every 20 years of rotation.
YEAR OF EARTH PIG
The year 2019 is marked by the energy of the heavenly stem 己(Ji) Earth sits on top of earthly branch energy 亥(Hai) Water. 亥here represents the zodiac of pig, so 2019 is the year of the Earth Pig.
There are some experts who say that 2019 is the year of the Wood Pig. They use the Na Yin method to determine the elements of the year, which is actually not quite right. The Na Yin Method 納音(Sound Element) is a method that combines the energy of the heavenly stem and the earthly branches from a pillar (can be years, months, days, hours) into a new elemental form which may have nothing to do with the energy of the heavenly stem and earthly branches origin. For example a pillar with the energy of heavenly stem己(Ji) Earth and earthly branches亥(Hai) Water will form a new element named as 平地木(Ping Di Mu) which means flat wood. That is why, it was mentioned that 2019 as the year of Wood Pig, which is actually the energy of the earthly branches that has blended with the energy of the heavenly stem into one elemental sound, Wood.
The Year of the Pig Earth starts from February 4, 2019 at 10.14 (GMT +7), while the Chinese New Year celebration is using the calculation of the moon cycle which falls on February 5, 2019.
If we look at the picture above, we see a destructive cycle of interactions from the earth to water or in the daily life we mention as the earth is storing or blocking the water. The existence of destructive cycles between the two Yin elements will trigger conflict, but because earth energy in 2019 is energy of adaptive land, so even though there is conflict, it is also sometimes accompanied by a tendency to compromise in resolving conflicts.
Inside 亥(Hai) Water itself contains water such as oceans and wood floating above it. Soil or earth that sits on the water will certainly make the water cloudy or not clear. Water itself represents a thinking process, so that 2019 like a polluted water, many possibilities of thinking people are not clear, so sometimes they take the wrong step. The earth that sits on the water also symbolizes instability so that the possibility of attempted murder and terrorist activities will also increase slightly.
We know two types of earth energy, namely mountain earth energy and soil earth energy. The energy of mountain earth is able to withstand the brunt of the oceans, but energy of soil earth is different. This year is predicted with possibility of increasing of water and land disasters such as flood, landslides, earthquakes.
In 2019 it is also predicted that there will be many incidents of travel accidents related to the sea and air. Diseases that will stand out this year are diseases associated with the digestive tract and diabetes.
2019 is a lucky year for industries in the fields of education, fashion, media, paper factories, property, insurance, etc. Industries whose creativity will increase are the finance, entertainment, etc. The two industries that will decline are industries related to metal and water such as transportation, shipping, metallurgy, etc. The car industry will probably show new model development within this year but not showing progress in financial terms.
For those born with the snake 蛇(She) zodiac, this year due to clashes with pigs 豬(Zhu), it must be anticipated that there will be many movements this year such as moving houses, jobs, etc. It is not recommended for those who are born with the snake蛇(She) zodiac to travel directly to the North West which is their worst direction this year.
For those who were born with the pig 豬(Zhu) zodiac, this year is a year of disharmony in dealing with other people so that this year will be filled with frustration etc.
Feng Shui energy also will change in 2019. The 5 star or the Star of Misfortune will be in the Southwest, for those whose main door location or office sector location is in this position, usually this year will experience problems. Star 2 or Star Disease is in the Northeast sector, for those who own a house with a main door in the Northeast sector, usually this year there will be many problems related to disease.
For those who have a house with a door in the North sector, this year for those who are single, it is likely to meet a soul mate, but for those who are married, please be careful because the possibility of meeting with another gentlemen or ladies is very high and this is also depending on which sector of the house is weak.
7-star or Robbery Star this year fell in the Southeast sector, so those with offices in this sector the intensity of problems related to the mouth or bickering will increase.
For renovations, it is not recommended to start renovations or excavations in the Southeast 1 (112.5°-127.5°), Southeast 3 (142.5°-157.5°), Southwest 1 up to Northwest 1 (202.5°-307.5°), and Northwest 3 (322.5°-337.5°). The good sectors for this year are Northwest 2 (307.5°-322.5°), which is very narrow and must be measured correctly so as not to fall into neighboring sectors namely Northwest 1 and Northwest 3.
San Sha (Three Killings) falls within the Southwest 3 up to Northwest 1 (232.5°-307.5°), it is not recommended to sit facing directly towards this direction, as well as towards the Northwest 3 (322.5°-337.5°).
This energy will change from year to year. Therefore, I strongly advise you to observe these changes in good and bad energy at the beginning of each year to take some precautionary measures.
I will close this writing by congratulating you on this year of the Earth Pig, hopefully everything is endowed with abundance of joy, wealth, and health.
