The Tai Sui (Simplified Chinese: 太岁; Traditional Chinese: 太歲; pinyin: Tàisuì) are stars directly opposite of Jupiter. They influence the Chinese zodiac, and are also a theory in Taoism and Feng Shui.

In the Chinese zodiac, these 60 heavenly Soldiers, assist the Jade Emperor in taking charge of the well-being of the Mortal World. Each of them takes turn to be in charge for a year. Due to most of them having a military background, they are normally known as the Military Generals. Each of their features and weapons signifies the well-being of that year. For example, if the Tai Sui of the year is one who holds a pen, it signifies political unrest for that particular year. On the other hand, if the Tai Sui of the year holds a spear or sword it signifies the need to work hard and excel for that year.

In Taoism, those who offended, or by their sign conflict with the Tai Sui of the year are advised to go through a prayer session with a Taoist Priest to ask for blessing in obtaining Peace and Good Fortune throughout the year. Talismans thought to protect again Tai Sui are sold in many areas.

In Feng Shui, the area of the house corresponding with the position of that year's Tai Sui is to be left undisturbed or misfortune will befall the residence.

The Tai Sui of 2006 is General Xiang Ban.

太歲 (神明)
--------------
太歲(又稱太陰、歲陰)是中國古代天文和占星中虛擬的一顆與歲星相對並相反運行的星。太歲最早出現在《荀子‧儒效》篇中,而避太歲的信仰則是從避歲星(木星)的占星術中分化出來的,兩種信仰在戰國時代常常混淆,一直要到漢代以後才逐漸釐清。

《續文獻通考‧郊社八》:「太歲者,十二辰之神。木星一歲行一次,歷十二辰而一周天,若步然也。自子至已為陽,自午至亥為陰,所謂太歲十二神也。」古書雲:「太歲如君,為眾神之首,眾煞之主,有如君臨天下,不可冒犯。」

古人將周天分成12段,每段對應一個地支,稱為一次。而木星每十二年繞太陽一周,大致上就是每歲行一次。而地支又與生肖相對應,所以當太歲運行到某個生肖的位子,屬於該生肖之人,唯恐觸怒太歲於己不利,便需要前往寺廟祭拜,以祈福消災。此活動便稱為「安太歲」。早期安太歲只要在家裡自行安奉,後來由於寺廟可以幫忙每日祭禱,所以才將安太歲的活動交給寺廟代辦。台灣地區自從民國84年(1995年)開始,各地寺廟突然開始為信徒安太歲,在此之前安太歲的活動在台灣並不盛行,如今則與大陸、香港等華人世界一樣,到處都有幫人安太歲的寺廟或道堂,隱約有宗教斂財之嫌。

其實太歲原本並不是凶神,而是守護神,明代《三命通會》說:「真太歲,又名轉趾煞,要大運日主與太歲相和相順,其年則吉;若值刑沖破害,與太歲相戰克則凶。」與太歲相順則吉,相逆則凶。清代《協紀辨方書》也說:「《廣盛歷》曰:歲破者,太歲所衝之辰也,其地不可興造、移徙、嫁娶、遠行,犯者主損財物及害家長。惟戰伐向之吉。……按,歲破為最凶之神,而《廣盛歷》雲『戰伐向之吉』者,蓋向歲破、即坐太歲而敵人乃居歲破之位也,然則乃是用太歲,非用歲破也。」只要坐太歲(亦即背對太歲),讓敵人面向太歲,那麼敵人就陷於「歲破」的大凶位,因此背太歲者吉,面太歲者凶,不言可喻。從以上的討論,只要依照「右背刑,左前德」的規則,就可以安處在吉位,一旦不按此律,那麼在前、後、左、右排列組合後,漸漸由吉轉凶,而以「迎刑左德(背德面刑)」為最凶。但是後來太歲的吉神面向被忽略,成為了一個大凶之神了。

太歲神從南北朝開始就有六十位,到了清代初期六十位太歲的名字全部更換,成了現在各地有安奉太歲的廟宇裡面的六十太歲。

Tai Sui - Year of Pig(2007)
Tai Sui is also known as the Great Duke Jupiter. Although it is called the Great Duke Jupiter, it does not represent the actual planet Jupiter. Tai Sui is an intangible star which moves directly opposite of the planet Jupiter. When translated from Chinese, the Tai Sui is known as the Yearly God. Tai Sui is the most powerful "Earthly God". There is a total of 60 Tai Sui.

Each year, there would be a new Yearly God on duty looking after all matters on earth. His appointment would commence on the 1st solar term or called li chun, in Chinese. And the next would take over the task on the following li chun. In this year of Fire Pig 2007, the Tai Sui is known as Feng-1 Qi-2.

Each year there will be some zodiac sign that has opposing forces with the Tai Sui. These zodiac sign are said to suffer some form of bad fortune. The negative impact differs from people to people depending on individual birth data. These zodiac sign can be determined base on the earthly branch of the year as it corresponds with the 12 Chinese zodiac sign. It can classified under offend, clash or conflict formation with the Tai Sui. See table below:

Classification Zodiac Sign
Offend Pig
Clash Snake
Conflict Tiger & Monkey


Besides, the zodiac signs mentioned above, if one's 4 pillar of destiny or known as ba zi contains factors of these zodiac sign within the earthly branch, the person is also deem to be affected for the year. Thus, there is also clash, conflict and or offend of either the month, day or hour pillar.

In the Taoist practice, praying to the Tai Sui at the beginning of the Lunar Year seeking for protection and peace would deflect the negative influence. One must return thanks at the end of the year.

The theory of the influence of the Greak Duke Jupiter is also used in fengshui. In fact it is an important aspect of concern. It is associated to the orientation of a premise determined using the Chinese Fengshui Compass known as Luo Pan marked with the 24 mountains. The position of the Tai Sui changes every year. The location where the Tai Sui resides should best kept quiet with no disturbance. Activities like renovation, ground breaking, earth digging, repairing and nailing on this area must be avoided till the following year. If the Tai Sui is disturbed, misfortune would befall on the residence such as injuries, financial losses, business failure or sudden illnesses. The extend of influence varies.

This year of Pig, the Tai Sui is located at 323 to 337.5 degree of the Northwest. If the main entrance of a premise is located at this specific degree, opening and closing of door is also considered as disturbing the Tai Sui.

More details about the Tai Sui will be shared on the Talk coming up on 20 Jan 2007.
