☆ Am I in the middle of Yakudoshi this year in 2016?
As you can see the above tables, it depends on your age and gender whether you are in the middle of  Yakudoshi. For example, if you are a male and were born in the red marked year like 1992, 1975, 1956, unfortunately you are in the middle of Yakudoshi in 2016. If you are a female and were born in the red marked year like 2000, 1984, 1980, unfortunately you are in the middle of Yakudoshi in 2016.

You might think “Hey, I was born in 1992. But, I’m not 25.”
As for age, Yakudoshi uses Kazoedoshi(数え年)/East Asian Age reckoning. It’s not difficult.
Kazoedoshi is your age + 1. If you were born on Jan 10th 1992, you are 24 years old and 25 Kazoedoshi years old, as of Jan 10th 2016. Everybody’s Kazoedoshi counts up +1 on January 1st. Everybody’s Kazoedoshi starts from 1 Kazoedoshi years old. If your baby is born on Jan 10th 2016, your baby is 1 Kazoedoshi years old, as of Jan 10th 2016.

☆ What are these? Maeyaku(前厄), Honyaku(本厄), Atoyaku(後厄) and Taiyaku(大厄)?
Honyaku is the same as Yakudoshi which means something bad will be likely to happen to you this year.
Maeyaku is the previous age of Yakudoshi. It means taking care of yourself for bad omens.
Atoyaku is the upcoming age of Yakudoshi. It means that bad luck will dwindle, but still keep in mind.
Taiyaku is like a boss among Yakudoshi. The worst, most terrible, most horrible luck will come to you.
Taiyaku ages are in yellow-filled cells in the above tables. For men, born in 1975. For ladies, 1984.
☆ What will happen to you in Yakudoshi?
  1. Your weak points, especially mind weakness and physical weakness are likely to come out.
  2. Despite your will, calamities will come close to you. Moreover, it will frequently happen. Severe illness, Losing your beloved one, Bankruptcy, Divorce and so on.
  3. You are likely to be stubborn. Your actions are likely to go wrong.  Friction with others.
☆ How do I cope with Yakudoshi?
  1. Don’t push yourself.  Stay calm. Refrain from new challenges, wedding, new job and so on.
  2. Keep in mind to revere deities and respect your ancestors.
  3. Get the benefit of deities and others. Be grateful to them.
  4. Don’t be stubborn. Keep in mind to behave for public benefits.
    Give your service to others as much as you can.
  5. Stop resisting your destiny. Leave your fate in the hands of deities. Just enjoy your troubles.
☆ What happened to me in Yakudoshi?

I was born in 1973. I was in the middle of Atoyaku in 2015. Unfortunately, I was hospitalized October 2015. These days, I’m getting better.

Now, I’m wondering where I’ll go abroad this year as a dream traveller. I spent 10 paid holidays for treatment at that time. Somewhere in Asia would be better.

  1. This is the clearest description I’ve ever read or heard about Yakudoshi. The first time I was in Japan I was 18 (and therefore nearing Maeyaku), so I asked my Japanese aunt what it was about. When I asked her if people believe it, she looked at me point-blank and told me that her mother had died while she was one of those ages!

  2. what does it mean if you still get bad luck after your atoyaku
    and if that year after the atoyaku is the worst out of all of them
