1. What is a Nobleman Star and how does it affect me in this Year of the Goat?

My Master Liu taught us that Tian Yi Kwei Lun is the Number 9 God, which I believe in the IV Pillars of Destiny or Bazi system is a beneficial influence called the Nobleman Star.    For those people who are born with their Day Master either being Yang Metal (庚), Yang Earth (戊) or Yang Wood (甲), the Goat (未) is a Nobleman Star for them.    This means that they are more likely to turn an adverse situation into a favorable one this year, receive assistance from a benefactor or enjoy the support of helpful people around them.

If they also have a Nobleman Star such as the Goat (未) in their Birth Chart then this not only means they are intelligent and analytical, but it can also bring the opportunity during their lifetime to accrue knowledge, rise to a high position in their profession and experience good health and well-being.   However if you don’t have the Goat (未) in your Birth Chart, then don’t worry too much as you should still be able to make the most of your opportunities this year.

2. When the animal sign that you are born in and the year is the same (ie. born in the year of the Goat and 2015 is the Goat), then it is said to be offending the year.  Why?  

In this case it’s understandable for you to think that this is your year. The problem however is that the energy in the Goat Year (未) comes from the South West (202.6° – 217.5°) and this is called the Grand Duke or Tai Shui.  It is said that facing the Grand Duke is an offense.

People born in the Goat Year belong to this sector and so in effect they look in the direction of the Grand Duke and receive the full energy of the year first. Unfortunately this can be both debilitating and punishing for them.  The best way to handle this (and it happens every 12 years) is to wear a Chinese charm or pendant of a Horse, which the Goat loves, as this will divert the intensity of the energy away.

It’s also best to keep a low profile this year whilst getting about your daily life and in this way you can keep under the radar, but still be effective in your life.

As his personal understudy for the next seventeen years Melynda embraced the traditional studies, embarking on many intensive study tours in China with later trips involving further tuterage with Master Henry Liu’s senior Master Liu, concurrently assisting with the teaching of students. Other studies have been undertaken with Grand Master Yap Cheng Hai, Grand Master Raymond Lo, Professor Cheng Jian Jun, Prof Wang Yude, Kim Lai and Siou-Foon Lee. Melynda currently consults and lectures in Feng Shui in Australia, as well as seeing patients in the clinic she owns and runs with her husband Gregory in country Victoria.
