Message From Joey Yap

Dear Friends,
Long before I began performing in-depth study and research of Feng Shui, Chinese
Astrology (BaZi) had me completely captivated. The idea of being able to chart ones
luck cycle and subsequently, plan ones life endeavours and goals accordingly, will
continue to fascinate and remain a subject that I hold close to my heart. Subsequently,
the art of Date Selection which forms the groundwork that provides the support for
BaZi and Feng Shui practice became more of an intriguing interest.
My personal experience in Feng Shui consulting, and my knowledge of what clients,
students, and practitioners need, lead me to come up with a Tong Shu that includes a
number of functional sections that would make for quick and accurate reference.
The idea for this Edition came about when my students requested a comprehensive
Tong Shu that compiled all the relevant information into one book. Thats because it
can be a cumbersome and time-consuming process to rifle through various stacks of
reference books to find a specific piece of information.
As such, I decided it was time to create the Professional Edition Tong Shu one that
adds in MORE relevant information. Its made simple and easy for practitioners to cater
to your clients in a reliable and speedy manner, eliminating time-consuming research
from. This is designed to save your time.
Its my sincere wish that this Professional Edition Tong Shu makes it convenient and
speedy for you to perform Date Selection for your clients, students, or for yourself and
loved ones.
Heres hoping you have a productive and fulfilling year ahead in 2014, and I wish you
much fun and fulfillment in your use and practice of Date Selection.

Warmest regards,

Joey Yap

This sector should be avoided for the most part, where possible, throughout the year, as the
#3 Jade Star settles in here. This Star carries negative influences that will result in heated
arguments and constant disagreements. Such tensions would make it difficult for anyone to see
matters eye-to-eye. The worst case scenario would be that these conflicts will eventually lead to
lawsuits and legal complications. If this sector could not be avoided, the negative effects can be
slightly lessened with the placement of an oil lamp or bright red items in this sector throughout
the year.
This year, the #6 White Star brings great benefits to those using this sector. At work, all the
efforts you put in will finally receive the recognition it deserved. Therefore, career progression
is expected, with a promotion and an increased of salary in the cards. If your office has a
West entrance, using this often will enhance your networking capability and influence at work.
Although this Star generally bring good effects, if it is activated by negative forms, its energies
may likely turn malicious. This aggravation will cause abrupt changes at the workplace as well
as possible health complications related to the kidneys or legs.
People involved in studying philosophy, writing, or any academic pursuits and research would
benefit more from using the Southwest sector this year, where the #1 White Star resides. This
Star can also boost the success potential for career and wealth related pursuits, which could
lead to possible travel opportunities for this purpose. The positive influences of this Star can also
bestow good reputation and elevate ones social status. In terms of relationship, couples looking
to tie the knot or start a family will experience happiness and prosperity using this sector. The
downside of this Star is that it can also bring about depression and emotional instability.
This is the secondary Wealth sector of the year, an ideal area to use for enhancing ones income,
especially for commencing a permanent job or long-term endeavours. Using the Main Door in
this sector of your home or office will help wealth activities like investment or work that centres
on the limelight or recognition to have a more positive outcome. It will also lead to promotions,
new prospects and general happy events. Couples considering marriage or starting a family will
also benefit from the good energies of this sector.

Avoid this area of your property at all cost if possible, as this is the most dangerous sector of the
year. Refrain from undertaking any major activities in this sector such as renovation or ground
breaking works. Otherwise, when this sector is activated, it could lead to potential mishaps,
5 Yellow calamity and injuries. It is best advised to keep this sector quiet and inactive. If this area is
unavoidable, place metal objects made of copper, brass or iron here to neutralize the negative
influences of this #5 Yellow Star.

Northeast

Forecast

7 Red

8 White

This is the Illness sector of the year, where the #2 Black Star resides. It carries a malevolent force
that wreaks havoc on the occupants who uses this sector of the property. If activated, it brings
a series of persistent sickness and health problems. Pregnant women need to avoid this sector
the most as its effects could jeopardize their wellbeing. If avoiding this sector is unfeasible, the
placement of metal items made of brass, copper, bronze or pewter in this area can minimize its
negative influences. On the bright side, this Star also brings upon positive outcomes for your
real estate or property investments.
Expect volatile feelings and emotional turbulence to arise more frequently for the occupants
this year if the Northeast sector of the property is activated or used. The #7 Red Star lands in
this sector, causing much grievances on several key aspects of life. People with existing health
issues may face possible surgery or hospitalisation. Couples with a bedroom in this sector will
be wrought with constant conflicts and disagreements. A house or office with a Main Door in
this sector would risk the potential of burglary or theft, so extra precautions must be taken this
year. On the career front, unhealthy competition and office politics could mar your work life and
progression.
This is the Wealth sector of the year. Main Doors of homes and offices located in this sector will
bring good financial returns from investments, business or work. It also increases the potential
for recognition and career progression. Even if there is no Main Door in this sector of your
property, you can still use this sector often to activate its positive energies. Placing a Yangnatured item such as fans, clocks and televisions can also attract the auspicious Qi here.
