Tai Sui
Have you pacified Tai Sui yet?
您安太歲了嗎?

您安太歲了嗎?道教禮俗專家提醒,癸巳水蛇年即將到來,建議蛇、豬、虎、猴等生肖要去安太歲;由於水蛇年是個「乾淨年」,提醒大家趕緊清理居家,為蛇年招來好運。

Have you pacified Tai Sui yet? Experts on Taoist customs and beliefs recommend that, with the Lunar Year of the Water Snake almost upon us, those born in the Year of the Snake, Pig,Tiger and Monkey should go and pacify Tai Sui. Because the Water Snake Year is a “clean year,” people should hurry and clean house so as to attract good luck this year.

新北市八里法旨聖天宮住持慧慈法師分析,今年是癸巳水蛇年,值星太歲為徐單(又稱徐威)大將軍,該位太歲星君特別愛乾淨,建議農曆蛇年前把家中好好清理一番,該丟、該送、該歸位的,趕緊處理好,過年前髒衣務必洗乾淨。除夕當天起到春節假期,廁所建議插上香花,或以天然精油香氛室內空間,可為水蛇年開啟好運。

Master Huitzu of Fazhi Shengtian Temple in New Taipei City’s Bali District says this year is the Year of the Water Snake and its ruling god is General Hsu Dan, also known as Hsu Wei, who is particularly fond of cleanliness. Master Huitzu therefore recommends that everyone give their houses a good cleaning before the beginning of the New Year and throw out, give away or organize everything that they should while also washing all their dirty clothing. She also recommends that everyone place fragrant flowers in their bathroom throughout the Lunar New Year holiday, or burn natural essential oils inside their houses to bring good luck for the year of the Water Snake.

屬蛇宜慎行事 屬豬正沖處處小心

Those born under the sign of the snake should be cautious this year, while those born in the Year of the Pig need to be careful in all matters

科技紫微網創辦人張盛舒、台中臥龍居民俗專家神龍,及中華聯合五術團體總會總會長盧崑永則指出,今年蛇人太歲當頭坐,宜靜不宜動,行事切勿衝動。屬豬者為正沖,恐有災厄,除了人不宜遠行,也應少投資,留意交通安全。猴、虎與蛇為三刑,虎人應留意血光、破財及官訟;猴人則應留意小財損及官訟。

Chang Sheng-shu, managing director of Click108, Shen Long, an ethnologist from the Wolong Temple in Greater Taichung and Lu Kun-yung, head of an association for the promotion of traditional arts, told us that those born in the Year of the Snake are at greatest risk of offending Tai Sui this new year, and that it is best for them to remain still and limit their actions while also avoiding rashness in all matters. Those born in the Year of the Pig are diametrically opposite to Tai Sui this year, and as such they may be more prone to accidents. Apart from it being unsuitable for them to go on long trips, they should also invest less this year and pay attention to road safety. The signs of the Monkey, Tiger and Snake are viewed as the three unluckiest signs this year. Those born under the Tiger sign should beware of external injuries and financial and legal problems, while those born under the Monkey sign should pay attention to minor financial problems and legal problems.

民俗專家神龍分析,雖然肖馬者未犯太歲,但因為今年無吉星入座,卻有諸多凶星,流年與屬猴的差不多,最好也去安太歲。多位專家同時提醒,癸巳水蛇年車關多,所有駕駛及用路人,都要特別小心交通安全。

Ethnology expert Shen Long explains that those born in the Year of the Horse are not at risk of offending Tai Sui this year. However, since they have no auspicious stars in their chart this year, but many inauspicious ones, their luck will be about as bad as for those born in the Year of the Monkey and so they should also pacify Tai Sui. Many experts say that because many car accidents happen in Water Snake years, all drivers and other people who use the roads should pay particular attention to road safety.

神龍解釋,安太歲屬道教信仰,太歲神共有六十位,從甲子年的金赤大將軍到癸亥年的虞程大將軍輪流掌管人間一年的禍福。

Shen Long explains that pacifying Tai Sui is a Taoist religious belief and that there are a total of 60 Tai Sui gods, ranging from General Jinchi, who governs the first year of the 60-year zodiac cycle, to General Yu Cheng, who governs the last year of the cycle. They all take turns overseeing the luck and misfortune that takes place in the human realm every year.
