As the Chinese Lunar New Year is about to come, Feng Shui expert Marites Allen claimed that President Rodrigo Duterte is a strong and fiery commander due to his astrological sign of fire. She said at the weekly Pandesal Forum in the Kamuning Bakery Café in Quezon City, that the luck of the leader will benefit the whole nation and the people should give the full support to the leader of the nation. Allen advised President Duterte to be more careful and rest more in the month of March this New Year, because this is the bad month for people like him born in the year of the rooster.
Based on their respected Chinese zodiacs signs, Allen said that President Duterte will get along very well with Russian President Vladimir Putin who is astrologically a dragon. As of now current administration is enhancing the ties with powerhouses Russia and China as part of the campaign for the Philippine’s new independent foreign policy.
On the side of opposing politicians, especially Vice President Leni Robredo astrologically a water dragon and who is a rooster just like the president, Allen endorses that the opposing parties should start to make a middle ground and work in unity and harmony for the better good of the country. In additional, Allen said that traditionally the dragon and the rooster signs are “secret friends” in the Chinese Zodiac.
Marites Allen also explained that the Chinese Lunar New Year should be the start of new things to everyone, that people should not only focus in writing their resolutions but give up their old bad habits and even their old things in their lives. She also added that this celebration is famous to many Asians worldwide as an annual period of renewal, for new plans, for new positive attitude. She reminded people that the ancient Chinese tradition of spring cleaning should be done days before New Year’s Day or only up to January 27 new year’s eve, but that there shouldn’t be any cleaning done on the very first day of the new year.
Often said by her fellow fortune teller, Marites Allen explained that the Feng Shui by the Chinese is a “science” system that was created to help guide the people in many ways. She added that feng shui is neither a religion nor a superstation it is just a director to better life and well-being of a person and a good feng shui is just one-third of one’s luck, the rest is being from one’s personal effort to change and God’s will.
