Lots of people will ask me why I'm sending out the forecast now and not during Chinese New Year in January. In the Chue school of Feng Shui, it is believed the new year is born after the time of greatest yin - the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice. So according to our school, the energy of the water dragon starts at 13:18 hours on 22 December.
Just a note about Feng Shui forecasts. Like a person's BaZi, it is not a prediction of what will happen. Rather what we are doing is reading the energy present. The final outcome is dependent on the energy of the year plus people's own efforts and mindset as well. The principle of Feng Shui has always been, learn the energy and make the best use of it.

If we look at the water dragon pillar, the dragon branch crashes the water stem which is not the most auspicious. You always want a branch to support the stem. So there is a bit of a clashing energy there. And when you examine the BaZi of 2012, two other stems are being drained. Only one pillar is supported. This is an indication of unclear energy.
The other significant feature is that there is A LOT of water in the chart but absolutely no fire. Fire connotes action, power. To put it in perspective, if a person's BaZi lacks fire, it's usually an indication of a lazy person - a couch potato.
Using the Chue Yik method, again you see a very yin hexagram with no fire. And it's a clashing hexagram which also points to a lot of domestic conflicts and disasters.
SO what does this all mean?
- Economically, it doesn't look like there will be much progress in the world stage. We will still pretty much be in recession
- Politically, there will still be a lot of turmoil. There is a distinct lack of leadership and people are unhappy and they will agitate and want a change (and more money). The governments aren't going to be in for an easy time. This will most likely take place in the West or the Northwest countries or the Western and Northwestern parts of a country
- It's a very wet chart. There will be a lot of rain with instances of flooding. There will be a higher chance of flooding in October, August and December
It'll be a wet, wet, wet year
So there's an overview for 2012. Yes, it does seem dire but now that we know the energy for the year, what are the best things we can do for 2012? Watch out for my next blog where I outline some of the actions that we can take.
