Year of the Fire Monkey Prediction part 1 – Heaven Luck – by Edgar Lok Tin Yung – December, 2015

Yearly prediction should use the Jia zi (甲子) cycle (Sexagenary cycle) and look at three different levels using the elements of the Heavenly Stem and Earthly branch of the year.

These three levels are:

1. The Heaven Luck (predicts major issues of the world and weather).
2. The Earth Luck (Feng Shui for homes, offices, cities and countries.)
3. The Man Luck (predicts individual animal sign luck in the coming year)

No exception for the year of the Fire Monkey, I write an article for each of the above topics.

Hopefully, it can be useful information for you to make reference to for the year of the Fire Monkey 2016.

I wish you all the best and good luck for the year of the Fire Monkey 2016.


Heaven Luck is to predict major world events, weather and natural disasters. So people can prepare for it. For example, people can increase their insurance premium in the areas where may affect them.

The energy of Heaven Luck kicks in when the Earth is passing the Winter Solstice, normally on the 21st or 22nd in December each year calculating from North hemisphere point of view. Let’s look at the characteristics of the Heavenly Stem (HS) and Earthly Branches (EB) in 2016 – The Year of the Fire Monkey.

The HS for 2016 is Yang Fire (丙).

The EB underneath is Shen (申). It is Metal element and it is represented by the animal sign Monkey.

The EB Shen (申) also has two hidden elements: Yang Water (壬) and Yang Earth (戊).

The way of arranging the HS & EB is top down. (Yang Fire on Metal or the Monkey. That is why it is called the Year of the Fire Monkey)

丙 (Yang Fire)
申 (Yang Metal with hidden Yang Water and Yang Earth)

The Melodic element is Fire.

The HS is the top level. The EB is the bottom level.

In Feng Shui, the annual Purple White flying star, the Number 2 flies to the centre. It is the Kun Gua.

Yang Fire represents: Fire in the Sky, the Sun, the lightening, on earth, it is Smelter, in human body: it is the heart, the eyes, the small intestine and the shoulders. It colour is red, pink and purple.

Fire in the Sky Year of the Fire Monkey








Monkey Metal Shen is: Metal objects, in human body, it is Large intestine, lung, bones, skin and respiratory system. Its colour is silver, gold and white.

Monkey is Metal Year of the Fire Monkey









With such combinations, we can see these issues in the year of the Fire Monkey 2016:

1. Overall, in the year of the Fire Monkey, the top level bullies the bottom level. (Fire controls Metal)

2. There will be more Fire related incidents in the year of the Fire Monkey. These incidents are bush fire, bombing, lightning, power failures, explosion, electrical accidents or burning down of a very prominent place or building. It looks like fire on a tall metal object, building or tower.

3. There will be food poisoning issues related to digestive system as the Kun Gua, sickness star flies to the centre. Yang fire represents small intestine and Shen (Monkey) represents large intestine.

4. Kun Gua is Earth and it relates to property. Property price will be shaken. (However, we are in Melbourne. As now it is in good Feng Shui period.) Please read another article Feng Shui of Melbourne.

5. Kun Gua is the mother Gua, so female will have more power or more women will be in power. (Aung San Suu Kyi, Hillary Clinton,)

6. Yang Fire element controls Metal element. Metal is finance, banking, stock market, precious metals. Beware in the Feb, May, August and November 2016.

7. In human body, Yang Fire element controls Metal element. We see issue with lung and respiratory system. It could be an outbreak of a pandemic disease from the south west, India or central Africa.

8. In element, the Yang Fire element controls Metal element. It shows that metal objects are burning or explosion. So, sea, land and air transportation may have more accidents.

9. Yang Fire also represents shoulders. Shoulders and Metal show a picture of weight lifting exercise. So, be careful while you are working out. In general we see more shoulder injuries or complain of frozen shoulders from the mothers (Kun Gua).

10. The monkey is the travelling star to the Tiger, Horse and Dog. Monkey and Tiger area clashes animals. This clash called road clash. So therefore, there will be more traffic incidents related to the air, sea and road.

11. Natural disasters bring thunderstorms, Fire in the Sky in the year of the Fire Monkey.

12. The flying star number 2 flies into the centre of the 9 palace in the year of the Fire Monkey, 2016. The number 2 annual star symbolizes sickness and health issue. Take care your health in year of the Monkey is your priority.


Be very careful in these months February, May, August, November in 2016 if you are speculating on the share market.

  • February means early February to early March.
  • May means early May to early June.
  • August means early August to Early September and
  • November means early November to December.


The benefit of Yang fire is the entertainment and broadcasting industries. In 1956, several TV stations started boarding. 2016, sixty years later, there will be more Internet streaming services.

2016 AND 2017 “HILL SIDE FIRE”

“丙申丁酉山下火” The Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch combination produces a melodic element. The melodic element for 2016 is called “Hill side Fire”.
Again, from melodic element point of view, it shows 2016 will have more fire incidents. And it will be severe bush fire or around hill side areas.


Year of the Monkey 2016, the annual Feng Shui flying star number 2 will be located in the centre palace. The number 2 is Earth element (Kun Gua). It shows female power up rising. It shows there may be an outbreak of a pandemic. It shows that property price will be shaken. It shows that digestive issue to children as the current Feng Shui period 8 and Gen Gua is youngest son.

Weather Rainfall in 2016 year of the Monkey

The year of the Monkey has 9 dragons producing water. Dragon is the Water storage. Each year the more the dragons produce water, the more rainfall it produces. Year of the Fire Monkey has 9 dragons out of 12 dragons producing water. We can see more rain. There may be major flooding in Melbourne in February 2016.
