Yearly Heaven Luck Forecast for the Yang Water Tiger

In this annual article, we will be focusing on the Yearly Heaven Luck Forecasts for the year of the Yang Water Tiger in 2022.

For yearly predictions, most Feng Shui Masters use Start-of-Spring time to construct a Bazi or Four Pillars Chart to prediction the incoming year’s events. Some Feng Shui Masters use Qi Men Dun Jia (QMDJ) or I-Ching divination….

Different Feng Shui Masters use different methods. 

Yang Water Tiger 2022

I was taught to use the JiaZi (甲子) cycle or sexagenary cycle, also known as the Stems-and-Branches system. It is a cycle of sixty terms used for reckoning time.

Generally, yearly predictions should look at three different areas or layers. They are:

  1. the Heaven Luck,
  2. the Earth Luck (Feng Shui), and
  3. the Man luck (Animal Sign Luck) separately. 

To do so, the elements of the Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch of the year are used. 

Yearly predictions can be useful for clients and feng shui enthusiasts to use for planning the year ahead. It can help to guide decision making and event planning, especially when combined with other tools such as the Good Days and Bad Days 2022 calendar.

Let’s now take a closer look at the 2022 year, which happens to be the Yang Water Wood Tiger year

The year of the Yang Water Wood Tiger starts on the 4th February 2022. However the Heaven energy surfaces from the winter solstice, this year, it is on the 21st of December 2021. (Normally falls on the 22nd Dec each year)


Heaven Luck is to predict major world events, weather and natural disasters or Act of God. So people can begin to make preparations for it. For example, people can increase their insurance premiums in the areas which may be affected. Or they can take more direct actions such as repairing and performing maintenance on their roof tops…

In order to determine the predictions, we use Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui. And they all begin with the Elements of the Heavenly Stem and the Earthly Branches.

This year the Heavenly Stem (HS) for 2022 is REN (壬) and REN is Yang Water element. Yang Water REN (壬) represents water, large areas of water like lakes, oceans or large rivers. This water is constantly moving too. 

The Earthly Branch is YIN (寅). YIN is Wood element with Yang Fire BING (丙) and Yang Earth WU (戊) hidden in it which is also happiness and positive energy (Fire Element).

The YIN (寅) is known as:

1. Wood element, the birth place of Fire element or San He Fire Frame. 

2. YIN (寅) is one of the travelling horse star. 

The YIN is represented by the animal sign of TIGER. That is why it is called the Year of the TIGER

To be exact, the Stem and Branch in 2022 add up together making the year as Yang Water Wood Tiger year.  Or it is a Yang Water and Yang Wood element year.

The classical feng shui way of arranging the Heavenly Stem (HS) & Earthly Branch (EB), is placing the HS on top of the EB. 

REN (壬) is Yang Water on top.
YIN  (寅) is Yang wood with Fire and Earth elements hidden inside. 

The Melodic element for 2022 is Metal. (壬寅癸卯金箔金). Metal is finance, banking insurance and tangible metal, such iron, silver, gold….

In Feng Shui annual flying star, the Number #5 star comes back to the Centre. The 5-yellow returns home. Central palace shows the most eye catching issue.

Star #5 returns home means it is back to its original stage. 

The number of Dragons producing water is 8. It will be a wet year in 2022.
