Fearless forecast in 2014

User Rating:  / 7

Jersey City, NJ -- This year, it is knowing what is in store for 2014 that matters to many Filipinos all over the world. With the tragedy brought about by last year's killer quake in Bohol and Cebu and the millions affected by super typhoon  Haiyan, I am one in hoping for the best to come.  


I do not believe in card reading especially those who charge money to tell you something you already know and scare you of horrible things that will happen in the future. It is partly because of my Christian orientation that stops me in believing predictions for only God knows what is to come.

Then I read of Feng Shui,  a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing the human existence with the surrounding environment. I searched the web for an expert and boom! I found one in Jersey City, not far from where I live. I called up to set an appointment for a possible  interview with this Feng Shui Master. 

On the day of the interview, I had prepared a lot of questions on my index cards but I discarded them as I was there to know what this coming year  is all about; how would it affect our environment, our health and the economy. 

Ms. Patricia Chee studied Feng Shui in China. She has been practicing Feng Shui for almost two decades and last year, she was able to predict the huge devastation that occurred in the Philippines. I conveyed to her my interest to share whatever she is going to tell me about her predictions for this year. She agreed and here is an account of  my interview with her:

The Filipino Express: Ms. Chee, it is my privilege to meet you and to find out what is in store for 2014.

PatriciaChee: The Year 2014 is the year of the Wood Horse or Fire Horse in the Hsia calendar. This year represents two elements with wood sitting on top fire. According to the cycle of birth and destruction which governs the inter-relationship between the elements, wood produces fire and so they are on the productive cycle and have supportive relationship. In 2014, the nature of the elements is not that peaceful .Yang wood symbolizes a tree which is stubborn that sticks to principles and hard to compromise. The Horse is a very powerful element of fire energy that will trigger big explosions, gun fire and war.

TFE: Does it mean to say that there will be chaos this year?

PC: Oh yes, with such elements we cannot expect 2014 to be peaceful. The stubborn yang wood shows an uncompromising attitude and makes it hard to reach an agreement between conflicting interest. There will be more international conflicts and struggles leading to fierce fighting and battles.

In the month of June in the Western calendar which is peak summer, the fire energy is very powerful. We see the fire flickering, emotional and unstable, which will bring about explosions and fire disasters. With fire burning wood from the underneath, the wood will be very dry and unhealthy as wood symbolizes trees and the environment. The Wood Horse Year will bring serious environmental disaster, such as forest fire, serious air and sea pollution and oil leakages.  

Strong fire also attacks metal which affects the breathing organ, lung and skin. Horse Year also creates bad air in the atmosphere and this will result to virus infection and epidemic spreading. In 2014 the flying star #4 is in the center and it is the Rooster. It will not be surprising if there will be another scare of chicken flu.

The Horse is also Peach Blossom or flower of romance. This is more beneficial to the entertainment and glamour industries such as beauty, advertising and media. The negative aspect of peach blossom will be sensational sex scandal. The yang wood sitting on a Horse is also a star called "Red Charm" which describes a woman of stunning beauty   that easily attracts men.

TFE: Can you tell us something about the economy this year?

PC:   For the world economy, the fire element is often the driving force behind the stock market. As such, Fire Year often generates optimism and drive up the stock market. The Year 2014  will show substantial improvement in the economic atmosphere and the stock market will continue to be very active particularly in spring and summer.

TFE: Thank you so much for sharing our readers a glimpse of 2014. If they want to know more about Feng Shui, how do they contact you?

PC:  For those who want to see me, please call 201-332-3688 or come visit us at Good Fortune Store at Hudson Mall. Route 440, Jersey City, New Jersey.

And as we shook hands, I began to understand there is a reason why this article has to be written and why it has to be shared.
