2014 had been a year of turmoil. That could be because it was the year of the Wood Horse, an aggressive and fast-moving animal. In the past year, wars and terrorist movements dominated the international headlines. Here in the Philippines, controversial findings involving prominent political figures came into the spotlight. We experienced extreme hot weather, while crimes involving bloodshed, robbery, and accidents with our public commuter systems caused great concern among Filipinos. Global health scares like the Ebola virus have threatened us as well.
According to Asia’s youngest feng shui master, Master Hanz Cua, 2015, the year of the Wood Sheep in Chinese Zodiac is represented by the benign and spiritual characteristics of the lamb--a gentle creature who grazes on grass and abhors bloodshed. The feng shui chart has all the Five Elements (Wood, Water, Metal, Fire, and Earth) in proper balance, heralding a more harmonious year. Yin metal supports the Earth which is a resource element so there will be a boost of prosperity for our nation's economy. The gentle nature of the Sheep will even influence local politics. Our leaders will work together more, and internal strife will decrease.
