The Hsia Calendar is a calendar that put all information of year, month, day and hour in five basic elements – water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. According to Hsia Calendar, this year of 2015 is a year of Wood Goat with Yin Wood (乙) sitting on top of a Yin Earth Goat (未). There are 4 kinds of earth in a year which are Yin Earth Ox (丑), Yang Earth Dragon (辰), Yin Earth Goat (未), and Yang Earth Dog (戌). The hottest earth are Yin Earth Goat (未) in which some literature mention this earth as a dry earth. Yin Wood (乙) sits on Yin Earth Goat (未) can be imagine as brittle tree which doesn’t have a strong root sitting on top of a dry earth. The wood will have to make extra effort to hold on to this dry earth which is lack of water and nutrition. Wood will be hard to live, so that is why within this year of 2015, wood related industries will find it hard to compete and have to slow down in their investment and expansion. Wood related industries like fashion, boutique, garment, flowershop, wood furniture industry, vegetarian food, education, will have a slow progress within this year of 2015. They can earn or gain money but they have to compete within this environment.

This brittle wood (乙) can also represent liver and neck in our body, because of the dry earth, the wood is easily broken, so you must take care of your liver and your neck if you do dangerous exercise or sport. There will be lots of liver problem cases like hepatitis, fatty liver, neck injuries, and etc (April, August and December). 未 itself can represent of our stomach and backbone which is being attacked or drained by the brittle wood. Expect more of stomach and backbone problem cases too within this year of 2015. Take care of what you eat so that you will not have problem with your stomach. For those who are乙 (Yin Wood) Day Master will be more prone to these problems.

As the Yin Earth Goat (未) is a dry earth and it is sometimes described as the grave for wood, we can imagine that earth will be cracked and this can be related to earth disaster like famine, earthquake, landslides, etc. We can expect earthquake within month of February, March (major), and October (with volcano eruption).

Wood will attack the Earth and this is a destructive cycle, so we can expect year of 2015 a year of disharmony with conflicts, but because of the flexibility of the Yin Wood, the conflict will not be so long and soon will be resolved.

Year of 2015 commences on 4th February 2015 at 3.58 (GMT +0). The Chinese year calendar goes on 60-year cycle, which means we share the same experience as the year of 1955. As I told earlier that there will be a resolution within a conflict, in year of 1955 if we remember there are many peace treaties for ending conflicts. I expect this year of 2015 will be a year of resolution on territorial disputes or political disputes.

The Goat (未) will form an Earth Penalty when there are Dog (戌) – month of October 2015 and Ox (丑) – month of January 2016. Earth penalty will cause problem like cancer. Cancer will be more prone within this year so please do check up routinely for your health, and take precaution of what you eat, drink and whatever you put into your mouth. As goat is a dry earth which I mention above lack of water, so we can expect also this year will be a problem because lack of water like kidney and immune system problem.

In May 2015, there will be probably a terrorist attack (bombing), financial stock will be tumbled down and health problem like rashes and skin will be more prone.

In June 2015, the stock market will be going down causing fear and health problem like heart will rise. For those who have already has problem with the heart and blood pressure, please do take care and control to your doctor to avoid these problems.

In July 2015, famine will be occur because this is the peak of the dryness within this year of 2015. Crops will be damaged badly by this famine. Fire disaster like forest burn also can be occurred within this month.

Airplane disaster can also occurred around April, August, and September 2015. Prepare yourself with a good date to travel on this date and avoid a clash day when you are planning for a business trip or holiday.

Creativity will be stucked within July 2015 and expect nothing unique or special product will be released within this month of July.

People who are born in the year of Goat (未) are offending the year Goat (Tai Sui 太岁), and people who are born in the year of Ox (丑) are Sui Po (岁破) against the year of the Goat, are prone to have a lot of movement this year because Ox and Goat clash, and as I mentioned above, Ox and Goat are Yin Earth clashes. The Grand Duke (Tai Sui) of this year is in South West 1 (202.5⁰ – 217.5⁰); hence it is not suitable to do any substantial construction work in this area for the year 2015. Year Breaker (Sui Po) of this year is North East 1 (22.5⁰ – 37.5⁰). San sha (Three Killings) will be in the direction of West. It is not advisable to do any renovations at these sites – Three Killings (West), Tai Sui (SE3), and Sui Po (NW3).Do not sit against the Three Killings unfavourable energy.

In the year of Goat, the bad energy called “Five Yellow” – symbolizing obstacles and misfortune arrives at the West sector. If your bedroom is located in the West sector, it is recommended to hang a metal wind chime to dissolve this bad energy. The worst months will be in April 2015, July 2015, October 2015, and January 2016. Another bad star 2 symbolizing Sickness will arrive in South East sector in 2015. In order to dissolve this bad star 2, hang a string of six metal coins in the affected area. The worst months will be April 2015, June 2015, October 2015, and January 2016.
Year of 2015 is a year in between of the year period from 2004 to 2024 which is called “Age of 8”. Number 8 symbolizes young children will always present in the centre of the flying star chart within the year of 2004 to 2024. That’s why a lot of disaster and misfortune will affect children within these period.
