Although personal matters have been moving at break neck speed, I still retain the zest and presence of mind to observe some of the more sensational happenings and blog about them.
From going through a 9-years barren spell (without kids, despite trying very hard to conceive, that is) to 2 pregnancies in 21 months is simply amazing! I am glad and at same time amazed to hear from my brother that my sister-in-law had been pregnant again. I know Ancestor Fengshui works, but never in my wildest imagination, worked to such efficacy. This is also not a work of coincidence as can attest to it being personally involved in meddling with our Ancestor Fengshui 2 years ago.
Well, supernatural or superstition or not, all Ancestors like to take care of their Descendants and will act once the communication channels are wired up.
I chanced across an article detailing that tomorrow will see a rare event termed Supermoon.
“‘Supermoon’ is a situation when the moon is slightly closer to Earth in its orbit than on average, and this effect is most noticeable when it occurs at the same time as a full moon,” Garvin wrote in the NASA statement. “So, the moon may seem bigger although the difference in its distance from Earth is only a few percent at such times.”
The full moon of March will occur next Saturday on March 19, when the moon will be about 221,567 miles (356,577 kilometers) away from Earth. The average distance between the Earth and the moon is about 238.000 miles (382.900 km).
“It is called a supermoon because this is a very noticeable alignment that at first glance would seem to have an effect,” Garvin explained. “The ‘super’ in supermoon is really just the appearance of being closer, but unless we were measuring the Earth-Moon distance by laser rangefinders (as we do to track the LRO [Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter] spacecraft in low lunar orbit and to watch the Earth-Moon distance over years), there is really no difference.”
It was astrologer Richard Nolle who linked the full moon of March 19 to natural disasters. He claimed that this “supermoon” would trigger massive earthquakes, volcanoes and powerful storms when it arrived. But scientists assure that this is not the case.
After reading this, I was interested to find out if anything untoward will happen tomorrow and hence did a divination for it. While the overall picture of the divination were positive, nonetheless it throws up some disturbing images. First set of image seems to suggest that metal objects in the air. This is likely to be helicopters, planes or bombs. The second set of image have people hiding underneath the mountains to be shielded. The last set of image shows burning movements, metal, fear and helpers.
Does the set of images have anything to do with the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami and radiation fears grappling the Japanese now? It would appear unlikely, because in case of radiation, the predominant image should be fire and not metal. It looks more like war.
I had an afternoon coffee session with 2 friends today during which the topic of teaching chart plotting in Chinese Metaphysics came up. One of them shared his experience of the agony of seeing the course fees he paid with each minute of the course ticking away while mundane chart plotting was taught during his Bazi class. The root cause of his grouse is probably due to the premium he paid for the Bazi course fees and chart plotting is deemed something for him to pick up on his own.
Whereas the other friend feel that any course teaching the right things should impart the skills on chart plotting. Afterall, if students bothered to attend course, they would have a higher level of enthusiasm in the subject to want to understand the mechanics of chart plotting.
My view is that much is dependent on level of course fees and difficulty of chart plotting from subject to subject. Whereas Bazi chart plotting is relatively easy, Zi Wei Dou Shu chart plotting is several times more difficult. Most of the students that were taught chart plotting about 2 hours doing that in class and yet still do not really know chart plotting thereafter. The students may lose $100 worth of course fees learning something most likely they cannot pick up. Is it right to milk the students of their course fees in this manner?
On the other hand, if course fees are cheap and chart plotting only requires 30 minutes to cover during the course, why not? Comparatively in such a scenario, the student may have only spent about $40 of his lesson hour learning chart plotting.
