Explaining Tai Sui as the Root of Taoism

Tai Sui is being referred to as Grand Duke Jupiter or Grand Commander of the Year. The role of the Tai Sui is rotated annually and he has command over all other deities except the Jade Emperor. The Tai Sui has always been misunderstood as a punisher giving problems such as mishaps and disastrous consequences. In actual fact, the Tai Sui is the divine deity taking charge of the world's general affairs for the particular year. The heaven sends Him to look after mishaps and disastrous happenings and provide protection. Possessing immense authority and power, he is the deity whom none will dare offend, in fear of diversity. A person's bliss, health, luck and misfortune are all under the care of Him. It actually serves as a reminder to avoid misdeeds, to take good care of health and to involve in more benevolent activities and to avoid offending the Tai Sui so that misfortune will not strike. He will note the good deeds and misdeeds of people.

The Taoist calendar is organized into a series of twelve "earthly branches" which rotate according to the five elements. The result is a sixty year cycle. Taoists believe that sixty Grand Commanders are assigned to command each year, and each with their own characteristics, temperaments, abilities, etc., to rule the years of the 60-year cycle. The Tai Sui governs the 24 Divisional cycles and the chinese 12 two-hourly period per day throughout the year. Each Tai Sui will take turns to take on the Heavenly Divine One role on 4th February (start of spring) every year. Therefore, it is customary that chinese folks across the world will usually throng the Tai Sui temples to offer prayers after the 4th February (usually within a span of 1 month) and NOT before. It is also worth taking note that another important date to be remembered is the generalized birthday of all Tai Sui, which is the 19th day of 7th lunar month. Those who have not offered prayer to the Tai Sui in the beginning of the year (first month of spring) and those who had forgotten to express gratitude to the previous Tai Sui at the end of the previous year can take advantage of this day to pay respect to the Tai Sui.

Some masters like to relate Tai Sui to astronomical studies of how the Jupiter planet orbits one day for every 12 years the earth orbits, passing by each horoscope every year. There are magnetic and energy fields for each stellar object, and since Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system, it brings great impact on our planet Earth. Jupiter is the biggest planet among the 9 planets in our solar system. Jupiter is made from gases comprising of hydrogen and helium. Because it is 11 times larger than planet earth, as it moved about, it creates interfering waves that exerts magnetic fields onto planet earth. Astrologists divide its path into twelve sectors, starting from the west to the east. Therefore, these masters believe that the basis of Tai Sui is related to the orbit of Jupiter. The Jupiter moves anticlockwise from west to east, and astronomers invented an imaginary orbit that moves the other way round from east to west to take positions and is called Star of Sui (Jupiter). That is how the name Grand Duke "Jupiter" came about.


Dou Mu Yuan Jun (Big Dipper Mother of Northern Stars)

If a horoscope is found to be in conflict with Tai Sui, it means the energy and magnetic forces of the position of Jupiter that year would bring unstable influences to people born in certain years. Due to these unstable forces, the people affected will experience bad luck. In Taoism, the custom of praying to Tai Sui for pardoning started centuries ago since Zhou dynasty. Remedying problems brought by the Tai Sui, curing Tai Sui Shar and praying to Tai Sui have also been a tradition practised by the chinese for centuries. One can always visit taoist temples with 60 Tai Sui statues together with Dou Mu Yuan Jun (Big Dipper Mother of Northern Stars) to see for yourselves how important it is that this ancient practice continued until today.

The Tai Sui of the Year of 2020 is the Great General Lu Mi

The new Tai Sui (God of the Year) for the GENG ZI Year of RAT 2020 is Great General LU MI. He will take over the Tai Sui role on 4th February 2020 at 17:03 hours. This corresponds to the 11th day of 1st lunar month, which is a RAT Year. Tai Sui Great General LU MI was born in Kun Shan during the Ming Dynasty. It is now known as Jiang Su province. An expert in literature, he was very well educated, wise and knowledgeable. One day officials from the imperial court were sent to seek 1000 veteran soldiers as a recruitment drive from the State of Sui. However, Lu Mi selected only a few as he wanted his country folks to avoid being imposed with burden. This had angered the imperial court, but he braved himself and stood for his people. He insisted not to bow to the demands despite threats and finally the officials gave in. Such leadership skills had earned him high honor from his people and recognition from the government. When he passed away later, the imperial court conducted a state funeral for him. Since then, he was being widely venerated for being a leader with great value. His image features him in military robe holding a knife. This translates to year of confict and possible bloodshed, especially associated with issues where the people stood up against the government. Some cities will not be satisfied with brutality of governments and able to ward off unfair suppression from their governments by using violence. As usual a few zodiac signs will suffer from his wrath this year. Besides certain zodiacs linked to him, those whose chinese names having the same strokes as his will also be offending him and will suffer from emotional set backs due to pressure, lawsuit, sickness, quarrel and fight.


Grand Duke Tai Sui Plaque

Displaying the Grand Duke Tai Sui Plaque at home is a common method of acknowledging the goodwill of Tai Sui as the Heavenly Divine One who is in charge of the year. This is also a way of paying deep respect to the deity and seeking blessings from Him. Displaying this plaque invokes the protection and goodwill of the Tai Sui. The Tai Sui of the Year always bring virtue and good tidings, and promises divine help when needed. This protects against offending him and cultivates his support in all our daily endeavours, for health, wealth, love, peace and happiness. This is a popular taoist method of invoking His guardian and protection. Those whose zodiacs are facing "disagreement" with the Tai Sui are the ones who will need to display the Tai Sui plaque at home, especially those who live in areas where they are unable to perform their prayers at the Tai Sui temple. Zodiacs facing "disagreement" with the Tai Sui will be further discussed below. Those facing "disagreement" can face serious misfortunes if not properly remedied. The Tai Sui plaque is usually displayed in position/direction of the Tai Sui. However, if the direction of the Tai Sui is in a toilet, bedroom or storeroom, then it will be more suitable for the plaque to be displayed in the direction of Tai Sui at the living room or family room. For those who have a Buddhist or Taoist prayer altar at home, the plaque can be displayed at the prayer altar. Remember that the Tai Sui must always be treated with high respect.


NORTH 2 and SOUTH 2 will be afflicted with Tai Sui Shar Chi

The position where the Tai Sui commands, no happiness but misfortune will befall. It is advisable to avoid its locating position and its opposite direction. The position of Tai Sui in 2020 is at NORTH 2 ranging from 352.6 to 7.5 degrees. The direction opposite where he is sitting will be the SOUTH 2 ranging from 172.6 to 187.5 degrees. This direction will have geographical negative magnetic fields (shar chi) that could not be explained scientifically. If you do negotiations, you can capitalize this effects by sitting in the NORTH and facing the SOUTH. Then your opponent will be facing the NORTH and confronting the Tai Sui. That way, you will always be in the winning position. The traditional use of Pi Yao in this area will greatly help to appease the Tai Sui. The Pi Yao is a powerful celestial creature known to absorb all the bad vibes caused by inadvertantly offending the Tai Sui, for example if you cut a tree, dig a hole, hammer a nail or unavoidably disturb the Tai Sui corner. Over the years of gathering information, we finally found the most effective way to appease the Tai Sui with certain additional properties into the traditional cure. When curing with the Pi Yao, it must look pronounce and not be hidden from view. And there must be metal element involved. Metal here refers to real gold that is genuinely 24K plated at minimum and strong metal. This year, we have designed a new 8 Immortals Pi Yao (with a 24 Mountains Plate) which follows the design of the forbidden city's Pi Yao owned by ancient emperors in the past. The 24 Mountains Plate is essential to force the alignment of cosmic forces of the cure to face an afflicted direction, especially useful for those who are not good at accuracy and precision of compass directions. Remember that the Tai Sui's and Sui Po's directions only span 15 degrees each and it is very easy to make mistakes with your placement; perhaps due to instability of your compass at the time of placement or unknown shift of the item's facing after some months later. With the 24 Mountains Plate, even if the Pi Yao's facing direction runs a little out of the actual 15 degrees span, it will work effectively as long as you place the Pi Yao facing according to the intended direction (one of the 24 directions) shown on the 24 Mountains Plate. There is a secret compartment within it which is openable and be filled with special mantras as a gesture of consecration. Tai Sui's favorite "pet" playing with him will essentially align the cosmic forces to synchronize with the detrimental vibes of planet jupiter, thus countermeasuring its negative gravity towards earth. Red is the color that is vital to harness protection against the wrath of Jupiter's energy. Last but not least, the 8 Immortal Implements catalyses the powers of the taoist 8 Immortals to help bless one with positive energy, bring good health, good fortune, wealth, fame luck, longevity and good descendants. The 8 Immortals benefit those who are experiencing bad luck from the Tai Sui.




Please take note also that there should be no construction, no unearthing, no digging and no excavation work carried out in the NORTH sector of your house, including repair work. If this sector is disturbed, those staying in the house will have a tough year ahead with a lot of arguments and sicknesses. This includes chopping a tree. When activities are carried out in the direction of the Tai Sui, it is deemed a challenge to his authority and a petrifying backlash will likely ensue. If there is no choice but a serious need to work on this area, then avoid starting and ending in the NORTH. One can start in other sectors instead before proceeding to the NORTH.

Next, one should not forget that the opposite direction which is SOUTH sector is also negatively afflicted and it is known as the Year Breaker (Sui Po). The negative effects in the SOUTH sector is similar and needs to be remedied with another 24 Mountains Pi Yao too.

Zodiacs facing "Disagreement" with the Tai Sui are the RAT, HORSE, RABBIT, SHEEP and ROOSTER


To check for which zodiac one is born under, one will have to follow the Solar Calendar. There are many zodiacs in disagreement with the Tai Sui in 2020 and they are the RAT, HORSE, RABBIT, SHEEP and ROOSTER. The disagreements (in descending order of severity) are further termed as Conflicting Tai Sui, Offending Tai Sui, Torturing Tai Sui, Harming Tai Sui and Breaking Tai Sui Tai Sui which we will be discussing in greater detail in the following paragraphs.

Conflicting/Confronting Tai Sui - The HORSE conflicts the Tai Sui in 2020. It means the HORSE confronts the Tai Sui directly from the opposite direction like in "wrestling position" with the Tai Sui. Remember, no one can win a fight with the Tai Sui because he will be the victorious wrestler of the year. This kind of energy conflict is the fiercest of all. It implies high risk, crisis, inconsistency in fortune and difficulty in every aspect. Problems associated to such a disagreement are for example the death of a loved family member, accidents, injuries, death, hospitalization, money loss, bankruptcy, demotion and losing a job. There will also be possible changes in the love relationship, therefore one has to exercise caution. Therefore, the HORSE should consider donating their blood and doing more charity in 2020.

Offending Tai Sui - The RAT offends the Tai Sui in 2020. The seriousness of offending Tai Sui will be considered as 2nd to conflicting the Tai Sui. Those who offend the Tai Sui will feel weak for the whole year and suffers from bad temper which results in poor human relationship. They will frequently fall sick, get wounded, pessimistic, feel restless and suffer from love problems. Therefore one has to exercise regularly and eat nutritiously. One should also not stay out for late nites because a lot of evil things can happen to one when the luck is not good.

Torturing Tai Sui - The RABBIT tortures the Tai Sui in 2020. When torturing the Tai Sui, the year spells no good harvest. There will a lot of contradictory problems afflicting them. Gossips, scandals, disharmony, badmouthing, emotional instability and bad relationship with people are going to be a norm at work and even hard work will not pay off well at the end. Crisis after crisis will occur. Crisis implies troubles, obstructions, failures in investments and blood mishaps. Therefore this is going to be a non-fruitful year for those torturing the Tai Sui. The whole year will just go to waste. The best is to stay low profile. They can also learn up meditation and pick up some spiritual paths.

Harming Tai Sui - The SHEEP harms (pokes) the Tai Sui in 2020. It simply means incompatiblity. When the Tai Sui is harmed, one will not do well simply because they cannot connect well with the rest of the eleven other zodiacs. They cannot get along with anyone, always in confrontation mode and will face difficulty at work. Their public image will become tarnished and this will be a major disadvantage for those who are in politics, showbiz, business and doing sales. Gossips and troublemakers are aplenty making them difficult to concentrate on getting more important things done.

Breaking Tai Sui - The ROOSTER breaks the Tai Sui in 2020. This affliction will result in one's life going haywire and behaving in a disorderly manner. Although it is the lightest affliction, it cannot be ignored by all means else it will magnified to become bad. The slightest mistake will bring financial losses. For example one is going to get speeding tickets, fined for drunk driving, investigated by authorities for wrongdoings etc. Therefore, the ROOSTER will have to be extra tactful and careful in the year 2020.

The zodiacs in disagreement with the Tai Sui also cannot get married in 2020. Some older masters even forbid them from doing renovation and moving house. Traditionally, these zodiacs in disagreement with the Tai Sui will have to pray to him for blessings after 4th February 2020 with time of transition at 17:03 hours. Traditionally, those who are living in towns that do not have the Tai Sui temple, they will carry along the Grand Duke Charm (Tai Sui Talisman) and the Pi Yao. The Grand Duke Charm will neutralize the influences of magnetic field to the person concerned, protecting against the odds and promises better safety. The Pi Yao will appease the Tai Sui, will help in difficult situation and will help one obtain a smoother ride for the year with more helpful people, less troublemakers and obtaining a more peaceful year. This is also a method one can use if it goes against ones religion on worshipping the Tai Sui.

The new 2020 Grand Duke Charm (Tai Sui Talisman) provides powerful protection and safeguard against many dangers from the Grand Duke Jupiter (Tai Sui). We have specially enhanced it to incorporate the authentic current year's "Tai Sui Mantra" onto it for genuine protection. This protective talisman also combines with another 5 potent symbols of Tai Sui protection; namely the symbol of Longbi, the Pi Yao, the image of the year's Tai Sui and multiple lucky fans to blow away misfortune. This protection charm is best carried along and hung in ones personal bedroom, workplace and car for protection against mishaps.


Additionally, also worth taking note that one can carry along the Amulet of Pi Yao and Abacus and it will answer to all the calls, especially when one is facing a tough and very difficult period of time and have nothing else that could help. The abacus expresses the ability to be sensitive of making money and wary of financial loss. Accompanied by the image of the Imperial Pi Yao, it magnetizes wealth to a supreme level. The almighty heavenly Pi Yao is the most supreme symbol of wealth.This Money Power amulet denotes prosperity, happiness, good health, wealth and fortune. It provides great power in clearing obstacles and inviting wealth from endless resources. It will offer special attention and help because it possesses miraculous and unbelievable energy to resolve great difficulties experienced. When one has been in great problems and feeling helpless or suicidal and everything else cannot help, one should quickly resort to the Pi Yao to lighten the problems. They will help one eliminate calamities, bring about good fortune, good career luck and auspice. It will resolve and take away potential conflicts, accidents or disasters.
