August 7 – September 6, 2016 – Month of the Yang Fire MONKEY
The Paht Chee chart shows that there is excess fire energy this year; it will create lots of obstacles. In the summer months like May, June & July, the FIRE element is present. Excess fire energy causes lots of argument, natural disasters, shootings, and riots to start. There were shootings and killing in Dallas, Germany, Japan and other places during these months. Wildfires in California destroyed lots of houses. All these events happened during FIRE season.
You can protect yourself by using water energy. Wearing colors like blue and black and having lots of water fountains present at the North, Southwest and East sector of your home/office will help. You make sure that you display stupa at the center this month due to 2/5 badly stars combination, fire season and Hungry Ghost month. We need lots of protection this month.
According to the Chinese belief, the Hungry Ghost festival will start from the 7th month of the Chinese calendar. August 16, 2016 evening is the ghost day; Buddhists and Taoists believe that the gates of hell are opened and the spirits normally trapped inside are free to roam the earth.
Ghost gates are located at northeast & southwest and it is advised to hang the Om Mani Padme Hum Blessing Plaque in these 2 sectors, as it will help to protect spirits going into your house. If your bed is located at one of these directions, you should hang the Yang House Amulet plaque or Wish Fulfilling plaque above the headboard during this month. It will help you to avoid bad dreams and block the ghost gates.
You should consider having a smoke offering puja after 7:00 pm on August 16, 2016 or/and offer incense outside your house from August 16 until August 22 evening. It will be better using the Spirit incense powder or Incense Kemenyen for the spirits. This kind of incense will be benefit to the spirits and will also create good karma to yourself.
