Water Snake 2013 is a year of conflict between Heavenly Stem Gui – Yin Water and Earthly Branches Yin Fire. Water Gui and Fire Snake caused conflict since Water controls/against Fire and since they are both Yin, the conflict will be more violent, vigorous.
Since Heavenly Stem is Water, it indicates that 2013 will continuously be a year of recession due to Metal – symbolize money – have to nourish/give birth to Water without being supported. Metal – Money have to be more exhausted since Wu Xing Na Yin of Water Snake Gui Si is Chang Lau Shui (Long river water), meaning weak Metal supports strong Water and resulting in world economy in deep continuous economy recession.
However, in mid and later of Water Snake 2013, you will see some good news for economy since the year of 2014 Wood Horse will warm up the cold economy. As you can see Heavenly Stem Jia – Yang Wood, Earthly Branches Wu – Yang Fire with Wood nourish Fire and it will create a warm-up yang fire. We can also see Wood nourish Fire and Fire will result in a Yang Earth, Earth will be warmed and dynamic (as it is the characteristics of Yang); and since Earth symbolizes real-estate market, it is a positive sign for real estate company. You can see more positive signs if you analyze Wu Xing Na Yin of 2014 Jia Wu Wood Horse, it is Sha Zhong Jin (metal in sand), Sha Zhong Jin symbolizes money (metal) will be poured into land, real-estate (sand). The Fire as we mentioned above will “melt” the cold frozen real estate market but it will also indicates a weak stock exchange market. As Earth newly born was still weak for supporting Metal, you can’t see positive indicators for stock exchange market yet.
Thus, 2014 is still a hard year for economy growth, though there will be chance for preparation, short buying before a warm-up real estate market in 2015. Of course not all real estate market will recover in 2015, you have to choose wisely which segments, market demand, etc suitable for your investment.
European economy will see itself in deeper recession as a few more members of EU will fall in bad debt, unstable economy and unemployment rate increases resulting social unrest, violence, demonstrations, looting, armed rob especially in the West side of Europe like UK, French, in Lunar months of 7, 8.
On politics, 2013 will be a year of conflict since Water against Fire. The most violent conflict in Asia will be South China Sea (as Vietnamese called East Pacific Sea) as San Bi star fly to this area. Three San Bi is the star of argument, violence will be the annual star of the area on which China claims its territory. The argument, conflict may easily change into some violence in China Lunar July, August as the monthly Er Hei, San Bi surely worsen the status quo.
On climate, 2013 will see high probability of earthquakes, tsunami, flood due to too strong Water element of the year. The area on which may see many earthquakes, spread-out disease is South West of the world, meaning Pakistan, India, Iran, Iraq, etc since South West will receive Er Hei Annual Star. Er Hei is supported by Time Star Wu Wuang here, not mentioning Wu Wuang Annual Star in 2013 locating in Center Palace will give more power to Er Hei and strong Earth Qi of Period 8 will support Er Hei. As the Earth becomes too strong to be stable, earth will be unstable and resulting in tsunami, threatening life of countries of South West.
