What will happen to Saddam Hussien in 2003?

Released: April 24, 2013

“Saddam Hussien – He is a weak wood person and he needs support of water and wood. As such, the strong fire in the year of the Horse, as well as the strong earth in the year of the Goat are not favourable. The Goat is dry earth – symbolising the desert. And it is exactly in the last year of the Goat in 1991 that he was driven out of Kuwait in the Gulf War. Therefore the Goat year in 2003 may stimulate another Gulf War. Especially he is born in the year of the Ox which is in clash against the year of the Goat, showing turbulence come to him in 2003. Such clash, in addition to his current bad luck of earth element could lead to his final downfall.”

The above paragraph is what I have put up in the South China Morning Post website – www.scmp.com in their 2003 Chinese new year special feature. During an interview by the CNN on new year eve, I also mentioned the same opinion and this was reported in Hong Kong newspaper Apple Daily on Chinese new year day on 1st of February. At that time many people still believed that the war against Iraq could be avoided.

My prediction is made on the basis of Saddam Hussien’s birthday which is known to be 28/4/1937 The following is his three pillars of destiny, his birth hour is not known.

Saddam is a yin wood person born in the month of April at the end of spring when wood is getting weak. There is totally absence of water in his know three pillars in the Year, Month and Day. As such, it is very obvious that his wood self element is weak and he needs the support of water and wood. And Fire and Earth elements will be unfavourable as they will exhaust his wood energy. At the present age of 65, Saddam is in a luck pillar of Earth Dog, with heavy Earth over Earth element. This is bad luck. The current year is Goat which is earth year, adding pressure on him. Also he is born in the year of the Ox which not only in clash against the year of the Goat, but also forms a “Three Penalty” with Ox, Goat and Dog come together in the same year. As such, it is easy to see he is into a very dangerous year.

The last Gulf war took place in 1991 which is also a year of the Goat. And the clash between the Goat year and Saddams Ox drove him away from Kuwait. But at that time, 12 years ago, he was still in good luck in the luck pillar of the water pig. Obviously this water element saved his life. However, today, he is in the luck pillar of the Earth Dog, so it will need a miracle to help him escape this bad luck. In my book “Feng Shui and Destiny for Families” I have analysed the tragedy of Lady Diana and mentioned that Lady Diana is a weak wood lady and she died in a bad luck pillar of Earth Dog, which is very similar to Saddam Hussiens sitaution today. Lady Diana died in a tunnel – trapped in Earth element. It will not be surprising that Saddam will face the similar circumstance, surrounded in earth in his final days.

I have also done a few I Ching Divination about the outbreak of the Decapitation Strike and the fate of Saddam. It is interesting to show them here for readers who are also interested in the subject:

1. Question – What will happen to Saddam Hussien in 2003?

Date: Water Rabbit ( wood )
Month: Water Ox ( earth ) Jan. 2003
Hexagram Family: Thunder Family Element: Wood
Subject: Saddam Hussien

 
M Goat ( Earth )
// Object
 
P Rooster ( Metal )
/
 
R Pig ( Water )
/
C Rabbit ( Wood )
M Dragon ( Earth )
C Tiger ( Wood )
// Subject ( Saddam )
X
 
R Rat ( Water )
/

M – Money
P – Power
C – Colleague
I – Intelligence
R- Resources

Interpretation:
1. Subject is Saddam Hussien and he sits on an Earth element which is getting weak in the month of Jan. Also the Dragon is “void” element on the day of performing this I Ching. It means Saddam is vulnarable and weak.

2. The active second line is Wood which is active to attack Saddam’s Earth element. Implying he will be under attack in 2003 and this attack is likely to happen in the wood season – Spring.

3. The active second line is Tiger wood change into Rabbit wood. This is called “Advance” meaning the attack is more serious. And it could mean massive attack in the Rabbit month – March 2003.

4. The change in the second line results in a total clash Hexagram, this is very clear indication of war.

5. The strong active line in the inner trigram can also imply there is attack from behind, from within Iraq.


Comment:
The above I Ching is very accurate and the US launched the “Decapitation attack” in March 2003 – month of the Rabbit.



2. Question – Will USA attack Iraq in the next 30 days?

Date : Earth Ox ( Earth ) 16th March during I Ching class in Singapore
Month : Wood Rabbit ( Wood )
Hexagram Family : Mountain 
Family Element : Earth
Subject : USA
Object : Iraq

 
C Dog ( Earth )
/
M Rat ( Water )
I Monkey ( Metal )
O Subject ( USA )
C Dog ( Earth )
R Horse ( Fire )
0
  C Ox ( Earth ) //
P Tiger ( Wood ) P Rabbit ( Wood ) O Object ( Iraq )
  R Snake ( Fire ) /

M – Money
P – Power
C – Colleague
I – Intelligence
R- Resources

Interpretation :
1. Subject line is USA which is active metal monkey attacking the object line wood, symbolising Iraq. So it confirms the attack will take place soon. However, the USA metal is not in season and is weak in the Rabbit month March. Iraq is wood which is very strong in March. As such, the strike will have difficulty and USA will suffer casualty.

2. The Subject line is active metal change into water and such water is Money supporting the wood element of the Object line – Iraq. This match well with President Bush speech on the day of attack - offering money to rebuilt Iraq.

3. In the Upper Trigram, the 5th line is active fire which attacks the subject line metal ( USA ) It means there is oppositions against USA – world wide anti – war movements against the US attack. However, this movement cannot stop the attack as it results in Earth element which continues to support the metal subject line.

4. The Object Line wood – symbolising Iraq – is active and this represents resistance against the metal attack. However, it is a line changing from Rabbit wood to Tiger wood, this is backward movement in the sequence of the 12 animals and is a symbol of “Retreat”. This could mean Chance of Iraq surrendering.

5. Iraq the Object line is strong in Spring, especially in Rabbit Month March. As such, it seems the strong resistance will be present in the Rabbit Month and USA cannot accomplish her goal before the Rabbit month expires on 5th April – the Chinese Ching Ming Festival.

Comment:
This I Ching was performed in front of a class of over 20 students in Singapore on 16/3/2003 when the USA attack has not yet started. And the outcome very clearly reflected the development of affair coming immediately afterwards. This also matching well with my analysis of Saddam Hussien’s Four Pillars above. Being weak wood person, he is still under strong support in March, in the middle of the spring wood season. However, this wood support will gradually fade away when the strong earth elements arrives in April.
