Fire el­e­ment in his birth chart will af­fect health, speech may cause prob­lems, says feng shui master

New Straits Times - - WORLD -

AS the Chi­nese zo­diac switches into the Year of the Dog this week, Hong Kong feng shui ex­perts pre­dict any­thing but a walk in the park for global lead­ers.

Born in 1946, a dog year, United States Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump faces bad luck, ac­cord­ing to sooth­say­ers, as his zo­diac clashes with 2018’s ca­nine theme.

Feng shui is in­flu­en­tial in many parts of Asia, where peo­ple ad­just their lives and care­fully po­si­tion items, such as a cup of wine or crys­tals in of­fices and homes, to max­imise luck and wealth.

The phi­los­o­phy says all events are dic­tated by bal­ances in the five el­e­ments of metal, wood, water, fire and earth.

Trump’s birth date makes him a “fire dog”, but 2018 is an “earth dog”, a mis­match of el­e­ments.

The fire in Trump’s birth chart would fo­ment and af­fect his health, said feng shui master Thierry Chow, while his words — the fire el­e­ment also rep­re­sents speech — might bring “real prob­lems” and tan­gi­ble con­se­quences.

“The el­e­ments are too much fire and too much earth, so that’s go­ing to be caus­ing him im­bal­ance in his for­tune,” she said.

Chow uses the “fly­ing star” sys­tem to make her pre­dic­tions based on con­stel­la­tion po­si­tions, fore­see­ing more ten­sions be­tween the US and North Korea, which was af­flicted by the most malev­o­lent num­ber five star.

She warned of the risk of crossed wires be­tween Trump and China on the thorny is­sues of trade and the econ­omy.

“The sev­enth star is fall­ing onto the east side. The star af­fects com­mu­ni­ca­tion, it causes gos­sip and mis­un­der­stand­ing.”

Away from pol­i­tics, Chow pre­dicted a happy wed­ding for Bri­tain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who will wed in May.

Earth rep­re­sents roy­alty in the Chi­nese cal­en­dar and, com­bined with the im­age of a can­dle as­so­ci­ated with May in the tra­di­tional al­manac, the el­e­ments are aligned for a day of cel­e­bra­tion.

“I think it will be very smooth. It will bring very good things to the coun­try and good en­ergy to the world,” Chow said of the mar­riage.
