2017 - Year of Red Fire Rooster/Chicken (Ding You)

January 28, 2017 - February 15, 2018

The "Yin Fire Rooster"!

General Overview of The Fire Rooster Year

The Year of The Red Fire Rooster 2017

2017 is the Year of the Rooster. 2017 Chinese New Year Day is on January 28, 2017. That is the 4714th Chinese year. The zodiac sign of 2017 is Chicken or Rooster. According to  the Chinese Horoscope calendar, 2017 is the Female Fire Chicken year. Red is connected to the fire. Therefore, 2017 is also called the year of the Red Chicken or Red Fire Chicken.

According to the Chinese Horoscope theory, Chicken is a Female Metal. Female Metal is related to gold, precious gem or jewelry. That means Chicken implies luxury, beauty, and wealth. Red Fire of 2017 is related to the light bulb. When the light comes on the top of jewelry, Chicken can show more value from its outlook. That implies we will deal with financial events in the year of the Chicken.

Chicken is the 10th animal in 12 zodiac signs. Chicken is connected to the season of autumn. It's the fall harvest time. Therefore, Chicken is also connected to the fruit. People should have relaxing or joyful time while enjoying the fruit. That means we can have a good time after diligence in the cycle of Chicken.

Male Metal is connected to air, wind or strong current. Female Metal is connected to fog or slow dirty air. We cannot see our future clearly until the fog disappears. That means Chicken blurs our vision and mystifies our decision. We need to wait for the sun appears or fog disappears. We will use these concepts to analyze the Chicken relationships with 12 Chinese zodiac signs.

The Year of the Fire Rooster begins on January 28 but officially kicks in on February 3, 2017 at 11:35 PM. The overall conflict between people will decrease as the Rooster enjoys group activities and gatherings; the aggressive action will not be there as it was with the pugnacious Monkey. Because the voice of a Rooster is very strong, and Roosters are not afraid to express their opinions, some conflict may still arise. However, it will be nowhere near as intense and suprising as that of the Year of the Monkey.


Economically, the rooster year will be more lucrative than the past two or three years. After the new year begins in 2017 there will be a Double Wealth Star. Not only is the wealth star strong for regular finances but also for gambling and speculation or any side income, so be vigilant for opportunities, especially in business. During the second half of the Year of the Monkey an increase in financial favor and more stability was observed. With the beginning of the rooster year this same energy will carry on and continue to grow and improve. This then creates additional occasions and liberty for people to speculate, providing also more chances to improve one’s finances.


The Peach Blossom Star sits in the center, indicating that we can expect more scandals regarding relationships in politics and entertainment this year. There will be increased activity in promiscuity so that brand of gossip or tabloids will be running over. Because the Peach Blossom Star is in the water element this year, we are susceptible to water pollution disasters. It may be a good year to keep extra gallons of water around in preparation for this breed of disaster.


The Dispute Star is sitting in the West of Sector Three this year. As America is considered in the West, will face an influx in disputes, arguments, racial tension, terrorist attacks and lawsuits.


The Disaster Star is sitting in the South. In Australia and Indonesian countries, because they are considered to be in the Southern sector of the world, the fire element will have a strong influence. These areas are prone to more fire and energy related disasters and explosions this year.


In Sector Two, the Sun Star is sitting in the Northwest. Take extra precautions for protection against health issues. People in father figure roles, such as leaders, CEOs, fathers, etc., are especially vulnerable. Eldest sons and daughters are also extra susceptible.


Overall, this year is very good for investing, especially in the beginning of the year. The market will be profitable during the spring but be weary of March 5 to April 3 in the Western calendar. During that time the opportunities are not stable, so people who lack superior competence with investing should not speculate at that time.


In the middle of the year, summer, when the fire element is engaged will be a good time to speculate that one’s power will be strong. However, be aware of June 5 through July 6 and July 7 through August 6 as though there will be many opportunities, the market will be fluctuating heavily.


Starting in August the metal element will weaken, meaning the whole financial trend will be unstable globally. At the end of the year there will be some big changes, so regular investment trends will be difficult to follow, inciting risks of losing money. Avoid large lump sum investing.


Overall the Rooster Year will bring more opportunities in finance. 


The Dragon is the most compatible sign to the Rooster. "When the Golden Rooster meets the Dragon, they become rulers of kings."


This will be a time of far reaching changes for the planet itself and humanity – the Yin fire here could bring great conflict and violence all over the world and is also associated with increased volcanic activity and seismic shifts. Fire will afflict the planet in many ways – from wild fire to warfare.

This year 2017 is symbolised by two elements Yin fire sitting on Metal. Fire conquers metal and so they are on a destructive cycle and fighting relationship = disharmony this year.

Like the old saying that a spark of fire can burn down the field – this year and this kind of energy lends itself to fire disaster and explosions – man made or natural. As it also symbolises guns and bullets we can see an upswing in warfare and ground warfare between the haves and the have nots.

The yin metal element for this year also represents the dagger which may be associated with killings and assassinations and terrorists attacks and entertainment and glamour are also highlighted so we will see much of this as well as many deaths again in this arena.

Science and technological discoveries are favoured here with breakthroughs in propulsion, nuclear and other fields of interest. Food and restaurants are well aspected also due to the fire here. Other things that will do well are energy healing, yoga and things like this.

In health terms Yin Fire represents the heart and circulation and also metaphysically refers to the brain, central nervous system and eyes. Ergo cardiac, hypo and hypertension, inflammation and strokes are highlighted and in the body metal is related to the lungs – therefore fire attacking metal probably means there is a high risk of a flu pandemic next year and or skin issues for the individual and accidents causing injury to the spine, limbs, fingers or toes.

Yin fire often leads to a boost in the economy and stock market in the first six months of the year when wood and fire elements are pronounced [in the northern hemisphere] and will make things burn brightly however when autumn arrives there will be a dramatic downturn as the illusive candle fire is dying off. A bear market is coming and in chinese astrology there will not be a relief from this until the year 2022.

This yin fire is also connected to birds, flying objects and as yin fire is flickering and unstable this speaks of air disasters and with the burning metal again we see skin inflammation and lungs. I would be suggesting that what ever you can do to support the lungs and heart and immune system in the build up to chinese new year on January 28th 2017 – do it.

It has been said every year and bears repeating – we are in a current 20 year period of an “age of 8” which began in 2004 and finishes in 2024. The Trigram is the mountain and it is the symbol of young children and we will continue to see disasters, troubles and serious misfortune afflicting young children during this time in trafficking, sexual slavery, child soldiers, refugees and slave labour. It behoves us all to challenge this and to take care of our own children in particular.

 In general, the Yin Fire Rooster year, with fire on top and metal below, is symbol of optimism, innovation and progress.  There is still conflict and disharmony in international relationships and may not be a peaceful year but people are optimistic, open-minded, confident and innovative to bring solutions to obstacles.

The Fire Rooster is also a rare year of both Nobleman and Academic stars

Feng Shui energies also change from year to year. Therefore, it is necessary to watch out for the re-allocation of good and bad energies at the beginning of each year, so that we can take necessary precautions against the bad luck stars and to enhance the very special good luck stars that are here this year in the important locations of our home and office. The information for cures is at the end of the post.

So imagine the year if you will as a Red Fire Rooster – fury, aggression, pressure, belligerence along with egotistical strutting and the emperor again wearing no clothes. The year will be active and dynamic, it holds positive moments and complex situations – it will be interesting and for those who are prepared to take action when they see it [especially in the first 6 months] they will unequivocally remain winners. The Rooster is considered irascible, impulsive, unstable and aggressive but also possesses generosity, courage and accuracy.

So expect sudden and impulsive situations to arise – cause and effect relationships unfold – hard work will lead to good income, being prepared to look for and take hidden risks will bring success and if you have been generally of good character in the recent time period you will be rewarded in this year – if not then probably the opposite is true.

The sensual and psycho-emotional spheres in 2017 will undergo substantial changes. And here it is important to point out that the Rooster is quite a jealous creature. How fiercely this leader-egotist defends his brood hens! In this sense the next year will not be any different from a typical rooster. But remember that jealousy may destroy relationships quite a bit, even marriages and family unions that had seemed quite durable. You will be challenged to be open and honest and not furious and aggressive – because in 2017 the Moon and also Neptune and Pluto (indirectly, but to a significant degree), will have a specific influence on us, inhabitants of Earth. Do not indulge in gossip in any way this year.

This is like adding oil to a fire, and it is necessary to be especially attentive to one’s words and actions. Besides that, the rooster always strives to take part in any conflict. He loves to criticize and isn’t ashamed to do so. It’s important to understand this image, because in 2017, communication, such as it is, will have decisive meaning, in part, in the process of solving conflict situations. Now and then it is fair and natural to speak from a position of strength and this often becomes the only true solution. The Fire Rooster will teach us this in the course of the whole year: aggressive diplomacy. And avoid gossip for the sake of it at all costs.

It will be a powerful year for those who wand to seize it – remember the rooster – loud and bombastic – impressions matter – look your best and be clear about want you want in all fields of your life – look for hidden opportunities however the tried and true paths that work must be adhered to also. Hard work. You are determined to make the promises you made to life, yourself and others come true.

The rooster is the early riser – perched high and claiming the ground – the adventurer – the Don Quixote – however wild goose chases can bring home hidden fortunes also – and the rooster is brave and bold and will willingly go up against adversaries much bigger than himself and prevail. He doesn’t back down and does not go quietly into defeat.

The keys this year are for order, examination of all aspects, strategy, Sun Tzu’s – Art of War applies to the year of the Rooster. Win the psychological battle and you have won the battle without a shot being fired. Ruthless diplomacy is the order of the day here.

The Rooster is a fertile bird with many fowl and so this year will be filled with such things. Perhaps a pregnancy – all babies born this year are very blessed by the way – very auspicious – and for singles this is a wonderful year for finding that very special someone and making a life time commitment. There will be lots of romance this year that is for sure. As a communal bird it is also a good time for joint ventures which brings us back to the cooperation zone for success we saw earlier. There will be many opportunities to sign productive contracts and partnerships in 2017 and your circle will grow – family comes first though – whomever that is in your life.

Sharpness and precision are the catch cry of this metal energy and there is much chi to direct here. The Rooster does not pull any punches but their attention to detail is phenomenal and so expect feathers to fly and get ruffled however all will benefit from such a rude awakening as it were.

Be careful – rooster is good with money so if you ensure all is dotted and crossed there is much success to be had. Expect a lot of rude diplomacy on the global stage too and with lunatics at the helm, war remains a very real possibility. This year works well if you are sharp and kind and focused and prepared to work hard – enhance the good luck and protect against the bad – for others the whole year can blow up in their face spectacularly.

Be mindful of overconfidence with the Rooster energy and ensure you do not get caught up in fanciful notions for that is what will lead to spectacular failures or war. No get rich quick schemes this year – slow and steady indeed – every incremental step you take – especially in the first half of the year – will grow great trees and fruit for the future – immense wealth can come from this.

Be solid – not speculative – disappointment and conflict will arise from this. This is where the current batch of lunatics running the world are going to get us all into serious trouble next year.

So over all just follow your instincts, slow and steady, lots of work for minimum gain this year however you are sowing the seeds of the future – don’t get caught in drama or get swept up in wild dreams – they will disappoint and cause pain – it will all be precariously balanced this year and not take much to be tipped into the abyss. There will be lots of criticism of people in the public this year, lots of cutting down to size, sex scandals are likely to abound and corruption around children exposed, we are all likely to see the puffed up rooster when it arises in any one and are likely to say no to it

This year is all about family and domestic life so make the most of that also – don’t be provoked by things – step back and see the boundless sky. Buy a new wardrobe this year and have plenty of red in it. Medical advances this year will occur in improved alternative medicines – big pharma will be exposed more for their manipulations of the system to make money and healthy lifestyles will continue to swing up.

This year is eccentric and wild, misunderstood and filled with possibility – so play your feng cards right – and avoid the controversy that always abounds in such a year – make a budget and stick to it – don’t look for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but there is plenty in the back yard to be dug up lol – and watch nations states become increasingly hard line in their them and us stupidity. The trumps and putins and turnbulls will all puff up like little roosters – flexing their muscles and making threats – taking offense at the slightest provocation – we can only hope they don’t follow through

Geopolitically – as said – there will be fires, volcanoes and seismic activity, the sun will cause problems and warfare is likely to happen – all fire issues.

The stock market will swing up in the new year but dive for years commencing around august.

There will be protests and violence on the streets of america and more clashes between police and the people.

There is likely to be a global pandemic or flu outbreak between Jan and March.

A major earthquake is coming.

Aging infrastructure will collapse – particularly around power.

A great deal of corruption will be exposed – the twin towers, kennedy – other interesting conspiracy theories will be demonstrated to be accurate.

Hacking will become a major issue for infrastructure with a major event again around power.

The ice is coming – the winter of 2017/18 in the northern hemisphere will be unequalled.

Russia will take back all of Ukraine possibly commencing in northern spring.

A big year for water disasters and contaminations etc.

China or north korea may spark an international incident – possibly nuclear – that could go very badly for all.

Volcanic activity will rise significantly as well as plate movement.

Many fascinating discoveries will be made about the nature of reality itself.


The official start to the year is January 28th and all your enhancers and cures should be in place by the 14th of January 2017 – also between then and the 28th it is important to have fresh flowers in the house – it adds to the new energy of life and opportunity.

On the 28th it is highly auspicious to have a bag of oranges and for every member of the household to roll oranges in through the front door. We actually roll them in through all the doors lol. It represents wealth rolling in!

It is a good year to wear the colour red. The Victory Star [ensuring wealth creation] is in the Centre of your home or office [use a Feng shui map – google – for 2017] to know where cures and enhancers need to go in what direction  – mostly you can do it yourself but these ladies are the bees knees when it comes to this stuff.

It is a bird year so lots of images or symbols of birds, peacocks, phoenixes and roosters will help. They are the force behind new growth and opportunity. It is rare to have many good luck stars however this year we have the Money Bags Star, Star of Good Fortune, Peach Blossom Luck, Scholastic Brilliance Star, and the Star of Celestial Protection all appearing.

This year also needs the power of the Dragon to stabilise energy so wear a dragon or carry the dragon-phoenix symbol in your wallet and car and office and home. Look after the Patriarch [NW] and Matriarch [SW] areas of your premises and it can be a very successful year.

Bad Luck Stars – Protection required

In the South is the Misfortune Star [5] so in the south area of your home, room or office we place the cures. This particularly impacts on eldest daughters and those who are Horse born. Keep this area relatively quiet and have metal around this area. This can be as simple as having silver coloured cushions and this is a great place to place your 5 Element Pagoda [or an image of one] For Horse born people it is very useful to carry an image of the Double Dorja and place one here as well.

In the North West is the Illness Star [2] and this affects the family Patriach and those who are Dog or Boar born. If this is a bedroom the protection is essential and may impact on cardiac conditions and the lungs. Place a Medicine Buddha and a Woo Loo here for protection – remove all red colours and fire energy [lights] from this area. I would recommend the Patriarch of each household also carry an image of the medicine Buddha and woo loo in their wallet too.

In the West is the Argumentative Star [3] and can bring misunderstandings, quarrels and legal problems and particularly affects Rooster born and daughters. Add bright lights [a tea light for several hours a day here is good] – the colour red, a picture of a bowl of red apples is good here – 6 gold coins are good here – place a Pi Yao here also [we have two on either side of the front door] and have an image of Tai Sui [protector god] facing out. A 6 hollow wind chime is good here also and images of red phoenix and dragon.

In the South West is the Robbery and Betrayal Star [7] and this particularly impacts on the Matriarch of the family, along with the Sheep and Monkey born. Remove all metal [blue and silver colours a no no] and place the Blue Rhino and Blue Elephant symbols here [and also in your car and wallet] – put the anti burglary symbol here [google] and again have it lit and the colour red here. It is a good place to put the Double Happiness symbol and a couple of Mandarin Ducks.

Auspicious Stars – Enhance these areas of office and home

Centre – the Victory Star [1] brings good fortune and success luck and victory in competition for all. It can also bring scholastic and career success. Images of Water [except never in the bedroom] and add the dragon – phoenix mini statues or images here.

In the East is the Wealth Star [8] and this is an extremely auspicious star that brings luck and abundant wealth to the home and to those who are Rabbit born. Place lots of Money Toads here, images of water or water features [loving the pool is right outside the east door here] and the number 8 is very fortuitous. I get the number eights in brass from bunnings and blue tack them up lol. 8 goldfish images are good here also.

This year the Three Killings Star is also in the East and brings bad luck to relationships and reputations. Hang a metal wind chime here to counter that and place the Three Celestial Guardians here also. A good place to place the Three Horses also.

In the North we have the Heaven Luck Star [6] and this brings bood luck from heaven and the support of Allies. It is great for the Rat born and also brings confidence, along with windfall and speculative luck. Enhance this area with lights [tea lights work wonders once a day] and an image of the Polaris North Star.

In the North East we have the Romance and Scholastic Star [4] brings favourable winds of happiness and bliss as well as good results in exams. Benefits the youngest son and those who are Ox or Tiger born. Another great place to put the dragon – phoenix symbol or images, shine a light here also, mandarin ducks and double happiness symbols for bringing and creating harmony in relationships. For those studying place and image of a mentor or a small globe that spins around.

In the South East we have the Future Prosperity Star [9] and this brings happiness and recognition luck. It benefits the eldest daughter this year and those born in the year of the Dragon or Snake. It is good to enhance this with the fire of the Dragon, the colour red, images of phoenix and peacocks and always have the dragon with the phoenix to balance the yin and yang energies – particularly in a bedroom.

If you follow these simple guidelines and have it all done by January 14th – you will set yourself and your family and business up for a great year of growth and putting in place things that will ensure future wealth and abundance.


2017 In General:
EAST - SE, East, NE, North: Opportunity, success, creativity, prestige, romance.

WEST - South, SW, West, NW: 
Danger, theft, violence, anger, sickness.

Politics - World Stage:
Nervous Tension - dramatic conflict, false flag attacks, shootings, bombings, explosions and louder, escalating war drums. 

1) USA and Israel push for war with Iran and Russia.
2) Racism and xenophobia may boil over across the USA with no resolution other than martial law - too much anger and hostile energy 2017.
3) Western European countries are walking on thin ice politically, facing change, further disruption and fallout.
4) Russia will remain calm and peaceful despite continued provocation just as long as the USA/UK/Israel spit only words and not bullets. Eastern countries are prosperous this year, but the presence of the Three Killings cannot be overlooked if triggered, then all bets are off.
5) China continues gathering power from buying up  Western real estate, corporations, Bitcoin and environmental projects, but may sustain hits from natural disasters.

Economy, Finances and Stock Markets
 hold well until the end of summer/August when factors indicate decline and dramatic change. Be cautious with real estate. Be prepared, and take action to protect your finances before the Autumn arrives. Be cautious and thrifty. Optimism is an illusion, enjoy it while it lasts.

Technology 2017 is moving at the speed of light, serious transformation and innovation - Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, SMART cities, Robots taking over every job possible, Drones becoming more common place, Surveillance of population expanding rapidly. There is minimal to zero cyber-security, and hacking of both personal and corporate information will increase, often for ransom. Between now and 2025, expect unimaginable changes.

Lungs are more vulnerable to flu viruses. Back bones and neck are vulnerable to fractures. Eye injuries. Skin problems. Knive and firearm injuries more likely. Dental problems more common. Heart attacks, hypertension and strokes more likely. Very favourable year for weight loss combined with exercise and healthy diet.

Disasters: Serious events, explosions, fire tragedies, water related disasters and tsunamis, possible nuclear accidents - planes, trains and cars are highly vulnerable. West coast of America has serious possibility for the overdue big earthquake, as well as increased larger earthquakes worldwide. Southern, SW, central areas, regions and continents are targets - Mother earth will not be kind. 

March especially portends fire disaster and explosions, which repeats January 2018 - serious clash between fire and water.

Female energy was strong in 2016 but 2017 is not good. Women must watch out and protect themselves from abuse, violence, assault, infidelity and betrayal.

Male energy continues to lean towards anger, and nervous energy. Focus on staying healthy and calm, immune system is vulnerable.

Relationships will flourish for some (Monkey, Rat and Dragon), but for many others relationships/friendships will be tested or end.
 safety and well-being will continue to be in danger thru 2024.

WATER For 2017:

Outdoor water for 2017 remains best in EAST - pool, jacuzzi or fountain. NO water in NE until 2024.

Indoor water features (Yang moving water), such as fountain or aquarium? 
1) A water fountain is a good enhancement placed in the Center to activate water star.
2) May place moving water in the SW to suppress the bad metal 7. Be sure the aquarium or fountain lives on the left side of the home/front door (the green dragon) and not the right side of the home/front door (the white tiger). 
3) A table fountain in the East may enhances the 8 star.

a) Yin water is motionless (vase), Yang water is moving (fountain, aquarium).
b) Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms represent draining water not generating water such as a fountain or aquarium.
c) Never place aquarium in kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, or the South

1) Color of the year is blue, especially important for female protection from SW violent metal star. Fire Rooster favours gold over silver.

2) Water
 element is important as it tones down metal energy - but clashes with fire element which is subdued by water. Keep all water fresh and sparkling clean to prevent misfortune and affairs. If water features in home (fountain, aquarium) prove to be discordant, simply remove them. 

3) If your front door is located in the South, SW, NW or West, place a pair of Fu Dogs there as protective guardians against all negative energies.

4) Salt water cures may be used in the NW (2 star) and the South (5 star) this year 2017. A super clean bowl of undisturbed water may be used instead, but the water must be changed often, left undisturbed, and remain clean and clear.

5) Anyone that has a dragon and phoenix statue or image, may try placement it in the East or Center for 2017. Avoid South, SW, NW or West.

 Wealth, success, prosperity, happiness, family - NE 4 Romance, study, creativity.
Opportunity - North 6 Career benefactors - SE 9 Growth, celebration, joy.

South 5 
Severe misfortune - NW 2 Nagging illness, accidents, money challenges, male energy.
SW 7 
Violence, robbery, abuse, deceit, loss, scandal, female energy - WEST 3 Nasty conflict, hostility, short temper, lawsuits.


a) If you believe indoor water features appear to be having a negative effect, remove it.
b) If any section appears negative, re-evaluate - tone down, remove object, or add/change to other elements/colors.
c) If you know how, check the natal flying star birth chart of your home, for conflict with annual visiting flying stars.
Elements and Colors:
1) You absolutely do NOT have to buy strange Asian objects to activate or remedy your home - simply use the elements/objects you already have. However, having said that, there are five Asian objects we personally like which can be used every year:
Metal Pagoda - Rhino/Elephant - 6 Rod Wind Chime - Metal Gourd (Wu Lou) - Pi Yao.
a) The Five Element Metal Pagoda - to protect against the nasty 5 earth star - 2017 in South.
b) A blue rhino and blue elephant - to protect against the 7 metal violence and robbery star - 2017 in SW.
c) 6 rod metal outdoor wind chime - to protect against the 2 earth illness star and the nasty 5 earth star - 2017 NW and South.
d) Metal gourd, known as a Wu Lou, which protects against the 2 earth illness star - 2017 in NW. A second Wu Lou may be placed in South.
e) Pi Yao for protection - treat him as a pet and place him West facing East in 2017 - if you have two Pi Yao, place the other in East facing West.

Every year - which begins in February - cleanse your objects by washing them in cold, salt water, and then allow them to dry in the sun for a few hours. Then, place the objects in the appropriate area for the new feng shui year.

2) Elements are stronger than colors - e.g. water is stronger than color blue, fire is stronger than color red, etc.
3) Be careful using fire and water elements! - they are very powerful energies and if placed incorrectly will block your intentions or create havoc.
4) For colors, use rugs, throws, towels, curtains, cushions, bedding, candles, lampshades, etc.
5) NO water in bedrooms ever! - including fountains, aquariums, water scenes, etc.
6) No fire/candles in NW ever!

In order to make your feng shui home or feng shui office, you need to know what the numbers in this chart of flying stars stand for and in which corner of your house/office they occupy. Details of flying stars 2017 are as followings:

Basics of Flying Star Fengshui

Flying Star System is a system used in Time-Dimension Feng Shui to analyze what type of intangible forces are occupying a particular compass direction. It is moving in a cyclical pattern and constantly changing location in time. It is a body of energies that governs a particular year, month or day. There are nine (9) stars with different influences positioning on each compass direction that affect us.

Each number is connected to a specific set of energies which can be favorable or unfavorable. As Feng Shui a very complex body of knowledge, there are always many levels to this categorization but generally, the good stars are 1, 4, 6 & 8 whilst the bad ones are 2, 3, 5 and 7. In the current Period 8 (2004-2024; the Flying Star school of Feng Shui divides time in periods of 20 years, with 9 periods creating a complete cycle of 180 years), the #9 Star is considered the Future Prosperity Star and is auspicious on its own or paired with a timely Star. However, its magnifying influence can be damaging when it meets up with a hostile Star.

When the lucky Stars (1, 4, 6 & 8) occupy a certain sector, residents of that sector will enjoy the auspicious energies of the said Star, be it in career, love, power or wealth accumulation. Conversely, the unlucky Stars (2, 3, 5 & 7) will bring illness, quarrels, misfortune and violence. The influence of the Stars will be more acutely felt when say, both Monthly and Annual stars in a sector are inauspicious.

The luck and properties of the 9 Stars changes with each period. For Period 8 (2004-2024), the luck of the different Stars, together with the recommended cures or enhancers, are summarized as follows:

#1 White Star – Water
This Star which brings career & academic success and good reputation. It is also the star that blesses one with good victory luck and the patronage of influential people.

# 2 Illness Star – Earth
This hostile Star brings diseases, sicknesses, accidents, lethargy and general poor health & bad luck.

#3 Conflict Star – Wood
This quarrelsome Star brings hostility and danger of misunderstandings which can lead to stress and even litigation. It causes obstacles to all your plans and at its most severe can be dangerous as well.

# 4 Romance & Literary Star – Wood
This delightful Star governs romance, career, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development.

# 5 Misfortune Star – Earth
This deadly Star brings the worst luck compared to all other stars and must be avoided or countered. It causes calamity, work obstructions, family disputes, injuries, wealth loss and even death.

# 6 Heaven Luck Star – Metal
This divine Star brings potential windfall, wealth and good blessings, but is a bit weak in Period 8. It also generates nobleman's luck and attracts benefactors so that work could be carried out smoothly.

#7 Violent Star – Metal
This vicious Star brings injuries, burglary, fire, rivalry and lawsuits. It also causes financial losses, disputes in every aspect of life, either at home or at work.

# 8 Prosperity Star – Earth
This is the luckiest and most vibrant Star in the current Period 8. Also known as the Primary Wealth Star, it brings fortune, nobility, favourable promotion, salary increment, smooth wealth luck, good health and career success.

#9 Future Prosperity & Magnifying Star – Fire
This Star brings luck for future expansion or prosperity. As the Secondary Wealth Star due to the coming Period 9, it is the best Star to enhance for long term gains. It also serves to magnify the effects of other stars be it good or bad.

Fortunately, the flight paths of these Stars are predetermined so we can foretell their positions and take the necessary steps to remedy or enhance the energy in a certain sector. When we know that bad Stars are going to gather in the same sector, we can install Feng Shui cures to suppress their negative energies and similarly place enhancers to maximise the positive effects of the good Stars.

Feng Shui for The Year of the Rooster, 2017

San Sha (Three Killings) Affliction in the East

East (52.5 – 127.5) is the location and direction of the Three Killings in 2017

When at work, you should aim to sit facing the east direction if this is one of your personal good directions; please do not sit with your back to the east in 2017 or you may find yourself coming in to contact with unscrupulous people working against you or you may encounter undue gossip and back stabbing during the year. 

To calm the influence of the Three Killings this year, I would recommend placing a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi with a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure in the east this year. The Huo Zai Dragon can help avoid a lot of problems that can be brought on when the Three Killings visit the east and as we also have Sui Po located here in 2017, it is vital that this area is kept calm and protected with the relevant Cures and Enhancers.

The established Feng Shui remedy for the 3 Killings is to summon the help of the Three Divine or Celestial Guardians – a powerful of aPi Yao, a Fu Dog and a Chi Lin. The Pi Yao protects against loss of wealth (Robbery Sha), the Fu Dog protects against accidents (Disaster Sha) and the Chi Lin protects relationships (Year Sha). Place the Three Celestial Guardians on the afflicted sector facing the 3 Killings, to protect from these 3 deadly energies.

If your animal sign is afflicted with the 3 Killings or your bedroom or office is located in the afflicted sector, it is imperative to stay protected constantly against the harmful energies by carrying protective amulets such as the 3 Celestial Guardian Key Ring and amulets wherever you go.

Do not take the 3 Killings affliction lightly. If disturbed or left uncurbed, the results can be disastrous. Peace and quiet coupled with suitable cures in the afflicted can keep its hostile effects in check. You will be grateful for having taken the effort to protect yourself and your loved ones from the catastrophes and disasters which the deadly Three Killings is capable of bringing.

Do not disturb the Three Killings occupying the East sector this year. So avoid any disruptive activity in this area (particularly renovations or soil digging) or you’ll run the risk of attracting serious problems both for the home, but also for its occupants: violence, accidents, diseases, prosecution and fights may result in serious financial and reputation losses, and other health complications. Keep in mind the following two recommendations: first, if you want to move your desk this year, don’t sit with your back facing the East direction. Second, it is better to face that direction, especially if it’s one of your four personal favourable directions according to the Ba Zhai Feng Shui system. Specifically, face the East and not the West this year! It is mainly the Tiger, Rabbit and Dragon born people who will feel the effects of the San Sha more.

Wu Wang (Five Yellow) in the South

The South is the worst sector of the year as the 5 Yellow star resides there, bringing bad luck to the family, especially to the younger daughters. Keep this area as quiet as possible and place Metal here to control this affliction. Postpone any renovation project in this sector to next year.

Tai Sui Affliction in the West

West is where Tai Sui (Grand Duke of Jupiter) resides in 2017

Resides between 262.5º - 277.5º degrees West in 2017.

Do not disturb the Grand Duke Jupiter which resides in the West 2 this year, at the risk of activating the negative energy of this star which causes bad luck, loss, illness and misfortune. So do not dig, cut or renovate in this sector. At work, make sure that this area is not occupied by your office, meeting or conference room... If it is impossible to change the layout, do not sit facing this direction and ensure to avoid being affected by its negative energy by making sure you sit with your back to that direction.

So look to the East 2 rather than to the West 2 to get the support of the Tai Sui. This will allow you to strengthen yourself at your workplace and will help you to be more convincing in your professional negotiations.

Like the Three Killings, Tai Sui does not like to be disturbed either. The effects of Tai Sui can be good or bad depending on the annual flying stars that coincide with its location.

The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a gold coloured special Pi Yao sitting on a Dragon & Phoenix coin in the East sector of the home or office facing the 262.5º - 277.5º degrees West radius where Tai Sui sits.

Sui Po is located in the East in 2017 (The year breaker)

Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2017 is East. You should treat this area the same as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities. If disturbed this area can and normally will cause immediate health problems especially for the youngest male, so please be very careful. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Rooster year you need to display a gold coloured special Pi Yao sitting on a Dragon & Phoenix coin. If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the East, place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the buildings and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Feng Shui Master or Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work.

Do not disturb the Sui Po also known as the “Wrath of the Grand Duke” in the East 2 sector this year at the risk of extremely aggravating the bad luck brought by the Grand Duke. So avoid at all costs to renovate, to dig in that area or to activate it inadvertently with noise or light. Disrupting too much this sector could lead to serious consequences that may be much worse than those made by the Tai Sui! 

2017 Annual Flying Stars:

The analysis of the annual flying stars can only be conducted from a general point of view offering indications as to the potential influences of the stars in the respective palaces for the year of the Horse.

How each area affects the wealth and health aspects of the residents depends greatly on the quality and combination of the ‘facing’ and ‘sitting’ stars of the property’s natal chart.

In Feng Shui out of all the compass based methods for analyzing what is to come, the Flying Star Chart is the most powerful and quickest working method. Using compass directions along with a formula to determine the unlucky and lucky sectors of your building (usually your home though some do it for businesses too). Different time periods can be analyzed too, yearly all the way down to even hourly. 

Centre (1 White) - Brings Triumph and Success

Kan 1 White, In 2017, Kan (Tang Lang) trigram flies comfortably into the Centre.

In element form, Kan is water. In the physical body, it is the ear. Internal organ it is the kidneys and it is also blood.

Generally, the energy associated with this star is good, bringing new businesses, new beginnings and happy events. It is recommended for couples who wish to marry and start a family to use this sector as these energies support such events. As this star also governs all activities related to education, research, career, writing, prosperity and many other positive aspects, it might be interesting to use this central sector more often.

Kan water #1 (tan Lang) has flown into the centre of every home and office around the world for 2017 and the centre has an inherent earth energy and from a five element aspect, this can cause conflict and whilst I believe there may be conflict in the year, I do not think it will be that bad, especially if you follow the advice here.

If you activate certain areas of the home it can bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and scholarly pursuits. The intensity of these attributes will differ in varying degrees according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars.

It is awkward when an auspicious star flies into the centre of a building as the centre is usually an area that is open or can fall in to several different rooms and this can be hard to place enhancers. If the centre of your home is the middle of your dining room or lounge, bedroom or other important room this is good news as the positive energy can permeate the rest of the home once you place some enhancers.

If the centre of your home or office falls in to a child’s bedroom or study area this year,  you should place a Ru Yi golden wealth enhancer  and gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue as this protects wealth and also creates new wealth in 2017 in your home or office. This powerful and time-honoured cure should be placed in the centre in 2017 to enhance wealth and relationships over the year of the Rooster. 

When using colours for the centre in 2017, blue would be a good colour scheme to use in this area. There are many different ways to introduce blue in to your home or office this year and the most common ways are to introduce blue using bedding, throw-overs, lampshades, pillow covers, rugs or chairs etc. Although unlikely, but if a bed is located in this area, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside the bed.

Businesses that rely on sales or related to industries selling properties, stock or similar should be cautious this year and make sure you place all of the appropriate cures in the centre but also in the south and northwest part of your building especially so if they have a main door here.

The White Star #1 brings victory to everyone in the house. It will help bring you more luck that leads to more success. You will be more able to overcome obstacles in your personal life and in the work place. Activate the star using a King Gesar and Victory Banner and carry with you a Victory Enhancing Talisman Keychain.

CURES to Enhance:

  • Place a Ru Yi golden wealth enhancer in the centre to protect and enhance wealth and relationships.
  • Try to introduce some blue, black, grey or charcoal colours.
  • A brass Wu-Lou would be good for a bedroom that falls into the centre.
  • Place creative enhancements like displaying an abacus, calligraphy set, artist tools like canvas, brushes etc.
  • Place a gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue in the centre to protect wealth in 2017.

North West (2 Black) - Brings Sickness and Illness

Kun 2 Black, the Kun 2 Black (Ju Men) visits the North West in 2017.

The North Westsector is not very favourable in 2017 as the illness star has taken possession of the premises for the year. So you should try to use the rooms inside this area as little as possible, as the influences caused by the star 2 are very negative and can cause illness or persistent health problems (stress, digestive problems...). Pregnant women and the elderly should avoid this area. If for whatever reason you can not do it, you will absolutely have to reduce the negative energies by placing a salt water cure or metal objects of brass, copper, bronze or pewter here. Avoid Fire energy in this sector.

The northwest in 2017 is not a very nice area at all and if possible, it is best left alone although I know that it is easy for me to say which is why we write the annual flying star recommendations each year as not everyone has the luxury of moving bedrooms or offices. If you have a bedroom, office or other important room in the northwest and unable to move out please read this section carefully.

If the northwest of your home or office falls in to a bathroom, utility room, guest bedroom or other less important room, do not panic this is great news for you and the effects will be much weaker than if you have a bedroom, living room or office in the northwest this year and for my home, this is a spare bedroom and downstairs a part of our main reception room so I am not too happy although not all concerned as I will be placing my cures and enhancers in the northwest so it should not cause us any problems.

If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the northwest in 2017, please read the advice below as the #2 annual star can be very volatile when activated during the year of the Rooster.

This star affects the health of the occupants of the house or office and can bring with it sickness, disease, bad luck, stress, stomach and digestive problems, bloated feeling, gossip, back stabbing, family harmony and distress. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4.

The 2 Black in Period 8 is an untimely star and hence its influence will be of a negative nature.

For the northwest of your home or office in 2017, you need to place a salt water cure, Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon, metal singing bowl and also place more round metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative influence in the northwest corner of your home or room.

The most powerful cure you can place in the northwest this year to weaken the effects of the #2 annual star is the Shi Dong Wu protection amulet. This is a very traditional and authentic cure that when placed in the northwest in 2017, can enhance and protect wealth, health, and career as the 2 black is a very unstable star and when disturbed with loud noises, its malevolent influence can bring many disaster, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth.

The 2 black flying in to the northwest during the year of the Yin Fire Rooster 2017 and can have an impact the eldest male of a home or office and normally associated with a father (patriarch).

A gold coloured three legged Toad is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but can also protect your wealth for the year. Make sure there are no red items, bright lights or burning candles in the northwest in your home or office as the fire element will feed the earth and activate the malevolent effects of the #2 star. If you already have these colours in the northwest, it is best to remove them but do not worry too much if you can’t, just introduce metal colours such as white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or any other way you can think of. If you have a main door that falls in northwest in 2017 you would also be advised to hang a Ba Gua mirror outside to deflect the negative energy.

Ladies expecting their first born should try and avoid using this bedroom. If there is no choice, try to use a good (north, east, northeast or southeast) sector of the room and implement the necessary cures. You should also sleep with your crown of your head in your personal Tien Yi direction.

If you cannot avoid using the room or the corner of the room in the northwest this year, you should place a brass Wu-Lou beside your bed. The brass Wu-Lou (also known as a calabash) gives elemental support to the northwest (metal) and also symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star. Because the northwest is associated with the patriarch of the home, the eldest male member of the home or business can be affected so make sure if they sleep, work or spend extended periods of time here that all cures area placed.

More importantly, do not decorate the northwest room with red colour or triangle shapes items and most important avoid burning candles or leaving bright fiery coloured lights on for too long during the year 2017.

Avoidance of this area is the best cure although I know this is hard so try and follow the advice and try and keep it as quiet as possible.

Now having given you all this bad news, I will now give some hope for those who are Gua 9 or 2 as this combination whilst on the whole is very bad it can be good for them in wealth and career, you will still need to place the recommended cures as detailed here but the effects of the #2 black will not be bad for you and can even give you positive results.

The black star #2 is a star that brings with it illness and sickness. This in particular affects the older members of the family, the patriarch, those already sick and anyone born under the Boar or the Dog. If you have a house facing or positioned Northwest you need to have a suitable cure in position such as a brass Wu Lou. If your bedroom is affected move to another room. If that is not possible at least move the bed so that it is not in the Northwest corner.

Ways to dispel the sickness include carrying a Garuda or Good Health Keychain, wearing a Medicine Buddha Pendant and having in image of it in the Northwest of the home. You can really weaken its impact of negative health luck using the Brass Wu Lou with Eight Immortals.

CURES to Dispel:

  • Hang six Chinese coins tied in red ribbon.
  • Place a salt water cure.
  • You do not need to place dragons and bells all around your home or office; you can use any metal ornament as long as it is not sharp or aggressive looking, and believe it or not a good cure is a round metal dog bowl or weight lifters weights.
  • A brass wealth ingot is good for protecting wealth.
  • Place a gold coloured three legged Toad with i-ching under.
  • Hang a Shi Dong Wu protection amulet in the northwest of your home or office.
  • Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.
  • A metal singing bowl is very good as is a stainless steel Dog bowl.
  • Avoid using red colour in this room and refrain from displaying triangle shape or fiery pictures.

West (3 Jade) - Brings Hostility and Lawsuits

Chen 3 Jade, the sound of Protracted Wind #3 Jade is making a lot of noise in the West place in 2017 and this is not a nice combination at all.

The West of your home is occupied by the star 3, which has a very negative reputation, because it causes deep disagreements and quarrels. You will notice an increase in tension in the family and it would be best to completely avoid the area if possible. The effects generated by star 3 may lead to theft, legal battles and lawsuits.

As we have the #3 Jade Annual Flying Star entering the west in 2017, please beware of possible theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers and legal problems. Try and keep the west of your home as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations.

To remedy the ill effects of the annual #3 star, you should use red decorative objects such as candles, lamps and lights. A nice simple cure to use in the west in 2017 is a red floor mat or a table lamp with a red shade. Do not use metal (metal colour is OK) to control this energy for you will aggravate it, restricting the beneficial influence brought by auspicious monthly stars in certain months and magnify its negative influence.

It is important that you do not place a water feature inside your home or office in the west this year unless a professional Practitioner has advised you that it is safe to do so.

Ensure that documents signed during the year are checked through thoroughly before committing to anything as mistakes and not reading the fine print is a common attribute to Yin Fire Rooster years and can bring costly mistakes. The influence of a Chen 3 in Period 8 denotes possible arguments, disagreement and in extreme cases, this can result in lawsuits, either as a petitioner or a defendant. Either case there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during 2017 especially if you have a main door in the west and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. You should also a hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2017.

In 2017, we also have Tai Sui located in the west along with the annual #3 star which can be a dangerous combination if not treated the correct way.

If your property or front door faces west in 2017, you must try to avoid the doors from slamming when entering or leaving your home or office. You should avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs in 2017 if possible. If you have an office or shop door in the west this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible and if you have children in your home, try to keep these doors from being slammed. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman Jie Tai sui gold plated plaque for 2017 to pay respect and appease the Deity. By paying respect to Grand Duke of Jupiter, we can weaken or avoid the problems this can bring. This is really important this year and we have included the yi bai fu mian qi talisman and Tang Jie Tai Sui plaque in all our annual cures and enhancers kits. In 2017, the ruling Tai Sui is great general Tang Jie who is one of 60 heavenly generals. The Tai Sui plaque is plated in gold to represent wealth and was specially made for 2017, year of the Yin Fire Rooster to be placed in the west. The magnetic hematite is used to represent earth which creates a cycle of earth feeding Metal to enhance wealth in the west in the year of the Rooster.

Do not take this affliction lightly. Do not disturb the ground of this area at all costs.

The arrival of the #3 start brings with it fights, arguments and irritations. This can have an impact on relationships of any kind. Misunderstandings will escalate more easily into disputes that are more serious. If your house sits in the west, faces the west or you have a bedroom on the west side of the home you should consider having a Two-Sided Flaming Magic Wheel Plaque. It is a very powerful cure for this Star’s effects.

For the youngest daughter of the family and those born under the Rooster the West will affect your chi. This means 2017 is going to be a time of quick tempers and arguments between them and their family and friends. It could even lead to legal issues. One thing you can do to lessen this star’s impact is to keep the West sector as calm and silent as possible. Avoid sound and a lot of movement in that area.

You can get more protection from this Star by wearing the Laughing Buddha Crystal pendant (Jade) and you can also carry the Peace and Harmony Amulet for Overcoming Quarrels and Disharmony.

To Calm Interactions:

  • Place a light in the west. If you have the option, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
  • Do not hang wind chimes of any material in this area of the house, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.
  • Place a Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman in the west for the year
  • During hot summer months, make sure the fan is not located in the west.
  • Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2017 and check smoke alarms.
  • Place a Tang Jie Tai sui gold plated plaque to appease Tai Sui for the year
  • Check through everything before signing documents if office is in the west.
  • Try and keep this area quiet and do not disturb with loud noises.
  • Try not to let children or noisy animals play in the west.
  • Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well.

North East (4 Green) - Brings Love and Scholastic Luck

Sun 4 Green Wen Qu literacy and romance star gracefully flies into the North East in 2017.

The North East of your property is occupied by an extremely beneficial star for any scientific and academic activities. The occupants of your home who use this area should therefore excel in their studies or research. If you have children at school or university, or have researchers or writers among your family members, install them in this area so they can enjoy the benefits of this star and see positive results in their work. Couples who live in this part of the house will see an improvement in their relationship and singles will see a change in their love life.

The Sun wood 4 occupies the northeast palace for 2017 and this is a conditional star but it is auspicious in Period 8 (2004 – 2024) and governs romance, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development when activated correctly. If you want to enhance this wonderful star, you would do so by using a yin water feature or introduce some water colours such as blue or black. This is a good area to have a pair of Mandarin Ducks, Dragon headed Tortoise or photos of you and your partner/family.

A yin water feature is fresh still water and the ideal example of this would be indoor bamboo shoots growing in a small amount of water or fresh flowers in super clean water. When using a Yin water Cure in the west in 2017, you should use a blue, grey, charcoal or black vase. You can also use just a normal bowl of water, whatever you use, the water must be kept squeaky clean as if it becomes stagnant even slightly it will cause you relationship problems. The water must not be moving though unless a professional Feng Shui master has advised you.

A crucial cure for northeast is a blue coloured Kwan Yin. This is a special enhancer and cure and needs to be placed in the northeast in 2017 to protect and enhance relationships and career and also to protect against physical and psychic attack. Sadly you cannot just any Kwan Yin statue, she must be of a certain width, stature and colour as we neem a light water colour to enhance this lovely #4 relationship star that falls in the northeast in 2017 which inherently is an earth element.

Without cures, this 4 star can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the cures are not put in place. Having a door in the northeast combined with the relevant cures and enhancers in place can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel.

You should not use fire or metal in this area or colours such as white or silver. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours blue or black in the way of a floor mat, cushions, tablecloth or such like.

As in every star, the 4 Green has a positive and negative aspect to its nature. Although a favourable annual star in 2017, it can also be affected by the presence of an unfavourable monthly star and when it does, this can denote betrayal, heartbreak, scandal and humiliation in affairs of the heart. The affected months in 2017 are June, August, October and November so please be sure to keep an eye on our monthly updates on the website. Treat this area as your relationship and creativity area for 2017 it can be very good for you. If the northeast is an important area like a main door, lounge bedroom etc please keep it is clean and clutter free as possible, believe me it makes so much difference.

One of the most vital cures and enhancers in 2017 is the Xin Xiang Shi Cheng Wish and Romance enhancer and we had to have this specifically created and engraved with a very special talisman charm which enhances peach blossom which is so important this year with the #4 romance, career, wealth, academic star in the northeast palace which inherently is an earth area and this can cause conflict and this very special cure and enhancer is essential to ensure and strengthen and protect romance/relationships, career and academics are protected and enhanced in 2017.

Summary for year: With the above cures and enhancers in place you should make good use of this area especially if you are looking to enhance relationships or creativity, this area is very good for writers, artists, students and anyone that is related to the travel industry.

Avoid fire element and colours such as red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue or black. If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes though. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here especially wind chimes from the 2017 cures. Spend time in the northeast if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.

People with homes facing or sitting Northeast have had a hard year so can now look forward to some better luck this year with the #4 star. As well as bringing education luck it is known as the Peach Blossom star because of the luck in romance it can also bring. The Youngest son benefits from this as will any bachelors who are hoping to settle down and live in Northeast rooms. Northeast is also the sector of those born under the Tiger and the Ox.

To get the most marriage luck you need to use marriage symbols in the northeast such as the Bejeweled Double Happiness with Peonies. You can hang or carry a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks Love Charm in your car and carry a Bejeweled Double Happiness Keychain for more luck in love.

To maximize education luck place a Yellow Crystal Point with Sacred Increasing Mantras. These are also great in the office to improve the focus and creativity of staff which then leads to what any business owner wants, a rise in efficiency and productivity. You can also carry with you the Scholastic Keychain.

CURES to Enhance:

  • Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
  • For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added on the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
  • Avoid displaying too many metal objects here, especially large heavy ornaments.
  • Fresh flowers or small pots of green leafy or flowering plants can be displayed in this spot of the house to lift the qi. Blue or green flowers are a good choice.
  • Place a blue Kwan Yin statue in the northeast to ensure and strengthen and protect romance/relationships, career and academics are protected and enhanced in 2017.
  • If you have mandarin Ducks this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
  • Place photos of loved ones or images of love to enhance relationships or attract new love. This can done with photos, paintings or statues, make sure there is always a pair in the image.
  • Place a Xin Xiang Shi Cheng Wish and Romance enhancer.
  • For romance a Dragon headed Tortoise or Mandarin Ducks is very good.

South (5 Yellow) - Brings Misfortune and Bad Luck

The 5 Yellow In 2017, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy returns home to the South place in 2017.

The South is the most dangerous area of your home as it is occupied by the 5 yellow star. It should be avoided for all significant activities or even, if possible, completely avoided! If this is not feasible, be sure to pacify the negative energies of this area by placing Metal elements or a salt water cure. Remove any Fire energy sector and avoid renovate this part of your home, at the risk of attracting bad luck, illness, lawsuits and money loss in your life.

Do not to disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with gardens to this corner of the property should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work.

The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen’ in Chinese, is one of the annual afflictions. It is a very volatile star. It has no gender and no trigram and is highly dangerous when disturbed. When disturbed, its malevolent influence brings disaster, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. Do be careful with it. Stillness together with metal cures can keep its negative influences at bay.

The annual five yellow star has flown to the south in 2017 and with the Annual #5 yellow enter the south this year, we have the inherent fire energy of the south feeding the visiting energy of the #5 earth star which can automatically amplify all of the problems that the #5 is known to bring such as sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth so it is crucial that the south has as much protection as possible and is also kept as quiet as possible. I strongly recommend that you do not disturb the south of your home or office with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. When the Five Yellow is disturbed this year, it can bring disaster, sickness, lawsuit and major loss of wealth so please be very careful in the in 2017 as it is very afflicted. You must place a set of six Chinese i-ching coins tied with red ribbon, a six rod hollow metal wind chime and a salt water cure in the south to avoid the problems that are associated the #5 yellow disaster star in 2017.

The most important cure to place in the south this year is the Shou Hu Shen Metal lily. This lotus shaped metal vessel displays the eight auspicious symbols and is such an important cure to use this year. The most important aspect of this Feng Shui cure is the lid with the eight auspicious symbols and mounted on top of the lid is the representation of precious Jewels. The eight auspicious symbols primary role in 2017 is to protect but it is also said to bring large treasures, good luck, spiritual growth, peace and harmony and contentment.

If you are using colours in the south this year, you must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in this sector. Do not worry if you already have these colours in the south of your home or office,  just try and introduce colours like white, silver, gold or copper; these can be introduced in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.

If you have a room that is not used for long periods of time such as a bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard in the south this year, this is good for you as these areas are not used much and therefore the negative power is less likely to be activated. If you do have a room such as a bathroom in the south, I would still place the cures though.

Summary: Do not activate the south this year with loud noises. Keep quiet and avoid building work or refurbishment. Do not use the fire element or colours related to fire such as red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, 6 Dragon Pagoda, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the south of your home or office quiet, avoid redecoration and building work in 2017 in the south part of your home or office and when you hang your wind chime try not to make so much noise with hammers etc, don’t worry about the noise the wind chime makes, this is all part of the cure, so when it is in place try and remember to knock it a few times a day.

This star is the most worried about when looking at the Feng Shui annual chart because it brings a great deal of bad luck, tragedy and serious misfortune. Wu Wang brings with it loss, possibly of income or even of life. It can also bring serious health issues so when things are that serious the best action is to avoid it by emptying the room being affected.

If you have bedroom placed in the South of the house it may be best to change rooms this year if you have the space that makes that possible. If you have the Horse horoscope sign it is very important you do not sleep in a South room as you are more at risk. This sector needs to be kept quiet – you can do things like keeping windows and doors shut and avoid having any music or the television on in there. In your garden do not dig in the South and avoid taking down trees there.

In the South of the house you need to place metal cures. The 6 inch Tree of Life 5 Element Pagoda is a great cure or 6 inch 5 Element Pagoda. For homes that are very big three pagodas would be needed or one of a larger size to increase their strength. If you were born a middle daughter or in the year of the Horse you are also at risk of the 5 yellow. Carry with you the Golden Mantra Pagoda Keychain, the Heart Sutra Pillar Keychain, or wear the gold Bejeweled Five Element Pagoda Pendant.

To Calm Interactions:

  • Avoid playing loud music in the south of the home or room in 2017.
  • Do not decorate your room with red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily.
  • Place a salt water cure in the south of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
  • Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the south corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
  • Place a Shou Hu Shen Metal lily in the south of your home or office for the year
  • Do not place red objects, burning candles or triangular shaped furnishing in this sector.
  • Most of all, avoid disturbing the south at all costs. Any form of renovations that needs to be done, plan it for another year. It is worth keeping this in mind.
  • Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the year in the south.
  • Replace or at the very least cleanse your Ba Gua mirror in the south especially if you have a door here.
  • If you have a main door in the south make sure you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut.
  • If you use a fan or other machines that creates noise or vibration try and avoid placing it in the south part of a room, get yourself a good compass.

North (6 White) - Brings Good Fortune

Ch’ien 6 White  The star of Heaven Chien 6 White (Wu Qu) sits in the North place in 2017.

The presence of the star is auspicious and a harbinger of good things for professional activities, especially if you are in politics or vying for a promotion or if you want to move up in your career. You are looking for recognition for your work? So, try to use the North sector as often as possible this year!

6 White is a benevolent money star and as an annual star, its position in the north in 2017 is excellent for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the property market, so for those with a main door, office/study in the north will benefit greatly.

This year this #6 star can bring more success for anyone with an office or main door in the north.

Those who have main doors or offices in the north sector can expect excellent business and career success when the north is activated correctly this year. However, whilst 6 White represents accomplishment, if the #6 annual star is located in a bedroom it can cause problems with the liver and/or legs. If you do have a bedroom in the north in 2017, place some blue cloth like a rug or duvet cover to dissipate its energy.

A stunning and very powerful cure for the north in 2017 is the Ba xian Ba Gua protection talisman which is an extremely powerful and much needed cure and enhancer in 2017 for when the Annual #6 star flies into the north creating problems for wealth and luck. The north is a fairly neutral area for wealth in the year of the Rooster and in order to make finances as prosperous as they can be this year, we need a very special powerful metal Cure of an exact combination to enhance the #6 annual water star and strengthen the bond between the two elements and his is a crucial cure and enhancer to place.

Summary for year 2017:

Take extra care in the months of March, April, October and December.

This is a nice area and even better if your main door or office is located here, keep area active with windows and doors open. Good colours are earth colours such as yellow. Place some real quartz crystal here or the hanging faceted sphere type; these are very good for activating the wealth and business side of this nice star.

If you live in a home that faces or sits to the North you will get the benefit of the #6 Heavenly Star. You can also gain if you are a middle son or born under the Rat. This is one the most auspicious stars and it often surprises with its good luck. If you gamble and you have rooms in the North you can benefit along with those who have entrances that are placed or face North. Along with mentor luck and heavenly support you gain authority and power.

To give the advantages a boost place the 6 Big Smooth Coins in your home or the Gui Ren Plaque. You can also get more heavenly luck by having on you the Gui Ren Talisman for Success Keychain and the Heaven Luck Activator Feng Shui Keychain. This will help bring to you the support of people with influence as we as good fortune in unexpected ways.

CURES to Enhance:

  • If this is your bedroom, a shade of blue or black in your furnishing or décor may help with health. A blue painting (not water scene) may also do.
  • Place a set six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon this year especially for the months of October and April 2017.
  • Place a Ba xian Ba Gua protection talisman in the north of your home in 2017
  • Real quartz crystal is very good in the north for 2017 as is faceted crystal spheres.

South West (7 Red) - Brings Theft, Burglary and Violence

Tui 7 Red   The Lofty breeze of Tui (Po Jun) flies home to the South West in 2017.

The star 7 which is in the South West in 2017 can bring volatile emotions and, by extension, cause disputes, violence and slander. Couples who use this area can expect regular disagreements and quarrels. Keep in mind that if your front door is located here, you might be more susceptible to theft and loss. Moreover, the star 7 can mean unhealthy competition and rivalry in your career. Install a Yin Water cure (non - moving water) to remedy.

The 7 red star has a negative influence in Period 8 and can bring a lot of problems to homes and offices around the world in 2017 if not treated carefully. The trigram Tui is also known as ‘Broken Soldier’. This is a fighting star. When combined with another untimely star, its negative nature denotes assault, deceit, violence and robbery. This year 2017 it falls into the earth element of the southwest which is actually quite nice and we can turn bad into good here with the following advice so please read this carefully and implement the appropriate cures and enhancers before the start of the year.

Whilst some good will come from this star the #7 Red still portends a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing especially in the months of February, April and May.

If you have a door in the southwest or even a window you should be looking to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics.

An essential cure and enhancer for the southwest in 2017, year of the Rooster is the Ba Bao eight treasure coins in circle Amulet which are tied together with red ribbon and strung in a circle together and hold very strong power to attract new wealth in your home or office and can help to strengthen and protect existing wealth in your home and business if placed in the southwest in 2017 as the shape of this cure is a metal shape and helps to appease the #7 water star in 2017. 

You should also a hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2017 but only do so if you have a main door in the southwest.

As I have said before, please take extra security measures and this is especially the case if you have a front, back or side door in the southwest sector in 2017. Make sure doors and windows are fastened securely before leaving the house. Do not display valuable items on windowsills, which may attract the interests of passers-by.

It pays to be wise this year and avoid taking too many risks for there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses.

Another extremely powerful cure for the southwest in 2017 is the San zhong three bell chime and you should place one of these exceptional cures in this area (southwest) of your home or office to avoid problems. This really is one of the most protective cures you can use and is also a very powerful enhancer for protection against legal problems, arguments, disputes and loss of wealth in 2017.

The best remedy is to stay away from this sector or try to use it less frequently although this is usually easier said than done. If you cannot avoid using this room, you should use more blue in your decoration. Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it and don’t forget that the negative influence of the monthly stars are usually of the earth elements.

The best advice that I can give is to make sure that you check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors in the southwest.

Summary: Keep area quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and quartz crystals.

Summary for year:

If you have an office or door in the southwest be careful of people trying to deceive you, robbery, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust.

In 2017 it is the Southwest that will be affected by the violence, danger and physical loss that the #7 star brings. Any houses that face or sit southwest or rooms that are situated in the southwest can be at risk. Older women and matriarchs should be especially careful though it can affect all women to some degree. It is a time to be careful around others and not misplace your trust.

If you were born in the year of the Sheep or Monkey this star could have a heavier impact on you also. You could display the Elephant and Blue Rhinoceros to give yourself some protection. A good way to stop your bag being snatched or having your purse stolen from it is to protect it by hanging an Elephant Protection Amulet and Sodalite Rhinoceros from it.

Other ways to address the negative energy of this star are to stick the two piece Anti Burglary and Violence Window Sticker on your windows. Hanging the Rhino Protection Amulet and Blue Liuli Elephant in your car is a good way to stop accidents.

CURES to Dispel:

  • You should try to introduce some blue colours in your decoration. You can introduce the colour by using cushions, rugs, bed covers, doormats or anything else you can think of.
  • Do not use anything that is associated to the fire element or colours such as red to control it as this may aggravate it.
  • Place a Ba Bao eight treasure coins in circle Amulet for protection in 2017.
  • Avoid candles at all costs.
  • Install or service smoke alarms and security systems.
  • Place a San zhong three bell chime in the southwest in 2017
  • Do not hang metal wind chimes here.

East (8 White) - Brings Wealth Luck and Prosperity

Ken 8 White, Zuo Fu flies elegantly into the East.

The East is considered the annual prosperity sector. If your front door is located here, you can expect good financial returns in your investments and to progress in your career. It is recommended to use this area as often as possible to give your reputation a boost.

This is the governing flying star for the next eight years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying stars system and is located in the east for 2017, so if you have a door, office or any other important room in the east this is great news for you although we also have the Three Killings and Sui Po located here so care will be needed and if possible, you should try using another door this year although this is easier said than done for the majority but If you have all of your cures and enhancers in place, you can still activate the #8 star and leave Sui Po and the Three Killings undisturbed. The Annual #8 star can be activated by human activity and normally, it would be encouraged to use this room as much as possible and with Sui Po and the Three Killings here, this room must be kept calm and quiet which is why the right cures and enhancers are so important in the east this year.

Although the #8 is a very auspicious star in period 8, this is somewhat spoilt though as the #8 star is associated with the earth element and sadly the east is a wood element which places the two elements in conflict but we will advise you on how to improve this.

Wealth, fame. Romance, prestige and distinction can be expected especially if you have an office here or a main door, even if you do not we can still activate it. It brings good fortune and exciting times even with the conflict of elements.

If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are good for this east palace this year. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz double hearts or a pair of Mandarin Ducks this year.

The east in 2017 has a wonderful auspicious wealth, good luck and romance (career) combination and this needs a very special enhancer and protector to activate this lovely combination creating wealth and good luck and also protecting it, the enhancer needed is a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi of a certain size and posture protecting a Ru Yi for prosperity and protection. Unfortunately you cannot use just any Dragon and the reason why we had these commissioned to a specific size, posture, colour, quality and weight, they really are very beautiful and would fit in perfectly with any home or office. We have included this in all of our annual cures and enhancers kits this year as this really is a vital cure for wealth.

If you have an east facing property with your front doors to the east, you must be careful not to allow the doors to slam when entering or leaving and do not renovate or dig in this area for 2017. If you have an office or shop door in the east this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible.

Whilst wealth is forecasted in 2017 for the east, beware of overworking as this can cause health problems. The extra work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular stress related problems as this can bring high blood pressure or kidney problems. You should make time for your family as whilst it is nice to enjoy the success we can often overlook things that are far more important like the ones we love and also our health. If you are older you need to be careful with limbs and joints so please take care in the icy weather and no risky sports if you have a bedroom in the east.

It is important that you try not to make any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the east part of your house or office between February 3rd 2017 and February 4th 2018. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes, digging foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. If you have no option but to perform work in the east, I would advise that you place a 6 hollow rod metal Wind Chime in the east in 2017 around the time the work is being carried out. This is the worst out of all the annual afflictions and in our home and business we take this very seriously as in our 36 years’ experience with Feng Shui we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed.

The most powerful and important cure in 2017 you can place is the Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure. This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2017, especially for the eldest son or male of the home or office if a son is not present and more so if you run a business from home although equally needed for females especially for wealth. This Cure is only known to a few specialist Feng Shui Grand Masters and in the old days and even now in Asia, you would need to employ a specialist Feng Shui Grand Master to call at your home or business where they would come along with a specialist zhuanke (seal carver) who would spend many hours carving the secret inscriptions on to the square earth plate in to a Lo Shu grid relevant for the Ding You year and would be carved on a large piece of translucent emerald-green Jade. The seal carver (zhuanke) and Feng Shui Master was traditionally hired by emperors and the very wealthy and was seen as a symbol of great wealth and power and this took many years of studying to perfect this specialist art form. We have included this in all of our annual cures and enhancers kits this year as this really is a vital cure for wealth.

Do not place heavy metal in the east this year, as it will weaken the good earth.

This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area for 2017 so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc in the east in 2017. If you use symbolic cures this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.

Summary for year.

Take extra care with health in the months of March, May and June. Keep this area quiet and try to avoid ground-breaking in the east for the year.

Having the #8 star flying to the East offers more opportunities to those born under the Rabbit sign and to eldest sons. It is also good for those with a home that sits or faces to the east or with rooms located in the east of the house. There will be an improvement in fortune, you will be more successful in all areas and any potential opposition is likely to fade away. If you are wanting to have some home renovations done start in the east to get better fortune on how they progress.

To activate the star in east side rooms put in them a Bejeweled White Dzambhala Wealth God. For those affected by the star to boost its effect wear an Ammonite Shell Pendant. You can also get the most money luck possible by having the Eight Auspicious Objects Crystal Ball. In your car you can place the Yellow Jasper Mystic Knot Hanging with Wu Lou.

CURES to Enhance:

  • Hang a faceted crystal sphere in this area of the house near the window or door. Hang it above head height and twist now and again.
  • The red three-legged toad can be placed here. Make sure the toad is facing into the house and not towards the door and the coin is never taken out of his mouth.
  • Place a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi for wealth, career and luck this year in the east
  • Introduce some fire colours into the east to balance the energies, a quick and easy way is using bed covers, rugs, table covers, sofa throws etc.
  • Place a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure for overall protection in 2017
  • If your bedroom is here, you can also place an amethyst or any crystal items in the east of the bedroom to further strengthen the earth element of the benevolent 8.
  • A good romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz Mandarin Ducks in the east this year.
  • Keep area active with open windows and doors (yang energy) although please be aware of noise levels.
  • Keep the area outside and inside the east, north and northeast as clear clutter free and open as possible, you need to let the auspicious Qi collect here and distribute inside and outside when this happens it is known as Ming Tang , this is a collection of Sheng Chi (auspicious energy).

South East (9 Purple) - Brings Future Prosperity

Li 9 Purple (You Bi) Li 9 Purple is found in the South East palace in 2017.

This is a good area if you want to start something new or a new career, because the energies present in this sector favour new beginnings. After the East, this area is considered the second sector of prosperity. The South East is therefore an ideal area to use to improve your income, especially if you just happen to occupy a new position. Put Yang Water (moving water) in this area to activate.

You Bi Li 9 Purple can be found in the southeast in 2017 and this heralds celebrations so be sure to make hay while the sun shines if you have a main door located in the southeast and because the two elements are harmonious, this really is a lovely combination so if you have an important room in the southeast in 2017, this is great news.

9 Purple is the star of future wealth and has an auspicious influence in Period 8. Career opportunities and promotions are possible and this is especially the case if you have an office or main door in the southeast in 2017. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.

This is a good area in general this year and especially for those in who are involved in studies in 2017. If this is a family area (living, dining or a library), you should try to encourage children to study here.

Couples with a bedroom in this location can look forward to good relationships this year and there may also be a chance of producing intelligent children. If you want to enhance this further, you should place a statue of Kwan Yin in the southeast part of your bedroom.

To enhance the influences of the southeast in 2017, you should place the Fo Xiang four Buddhas of prosperity and luck. As we have the Annual #9 Flying Star fall in to the southeast for 2017 which can bring double luck as we have the inherent Wood element feeding the Annual Fire element which calls for a special and very powerful Cure and enhancer named the four Fo Xiang Buddha’s of prosperity and protection. Because the #9 star falls in the southeast, which is inherently a wood area, you have double the luck with wood feeding the #9 fire star and it must be activated with these four wealth enhancing and wealth protection Buddha’s.

If you want to enhance fertility you can display peanuts in shells (groundnuts) or any seed products like black or red melon seeds (Gua zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’ and for the Chinese this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means the birth of many children. You should display them anywhere in the bedroom and of course be careful if anyone in the home suffers with nut allergies.

Although deemed as an auspicious star, the element of the annual #9 star can strengthen the malevolent effects of visiting monthly stars #2 and #5. You should hang a set of six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon here to weaken the undesirable influences of the monthly stars #2 and #5 which will visit in April and July.

For those with rooms in the Southeast, entrances located there and for the Snakes, Dragons or first born daughters this is your star. This is a star that indicates nurturing and brings opportunities of success, recognition, fame and promotion. It can be enhanced by using a Nine Dragon Plaque, Nine Dragons Wall and from carrying with you a Nine Ring Sword Keychain.

CURES to Enhance:

  • Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.
  • Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.
  • Place the Fo Xiang four Buddhas of prosperity and luck to enhance the annual #9 stars effects this year.
  • Symbolic objects such as a gold abacus or six Chinese coins can be placed here all year round to enhance benevolent influence and at the same time dissipate the malevolent influence by the visiting monthly #2 and #5.

Water placement in 2017:

As we entered period 8 (4th February 2004) the use of water outside is critical up until 2024, so a pond outside in the correct area can really work in your favour although you must not do so unless advised by a professional Feng Shui consultant place water outside in the northeast up until 2024.

Outside water placement in 2017:

Outside water can be placed in the southwest or east as this is your primary and secondary wealth areas for the next twelve years. In 2017 water outside in the east is good but please only do so if you know what your natal chart (flying star chart) and you also have a good facing star this would make a very powerful combination for wealth.

Indoor water placement for 2017:

If you have to use indoor water the best area is in the east as this activates the auspicious #8 star. Regardless though it is better to seek professional advice before placing any water feature inside or out as in Feng Shui it is the catalyst to good and bad so please take care and consult.

If you are using water inside or outside it is extremely important that you make sure the water is clean and flowing and never allow it to become stagnant as this can cause Qi to become Yin energy which can cause a lot of problems. Water is a very powerful enhancer and is the essence of Feng Shui (Shui meaning water) the qi is caught by the water and cleansed (providing the water is clean) and distributed throughout your property.

Whilst the methods above are considered safe, there are many exceptions to the placement of water and as Master Practitioners and teachers we use many more methods of water placement for wealth, education and relationship, these methods whilst extremely powerful can only be used with expert guidance and a full analysis of your property and land formations.

Salt water cure :

You should use the salt water cure this year after February 3rd 2017 in the South & Northwest (DO NOT REUSE LAST YEARS SALT WATER CURE).

There are many exceptions to be made, the thing to remember with flying stars is, if you have a 5 yellow in a dining room and if it is an open plan home the 5 yellow’s power can drift into any other part of the home, think of perfume, if you sprayed some in your bedroom your partner may still be able to smell it downstairs because the smell goes into the air (Ch’i) and drifts around the home, so as general advice it is better to cure than leave to chance.

Then refer to the chart below to look out for good or bad sectors of the month and take the necessary steps to suppress the inauspicious stars or enhance the auspicious ones.

When the combination of the annual star and monthly star in a compass sector is made up of the good stars (8, 6 and 1), the particular sector is said to very auspicious and will bring lots of good luck to its occupant. But when the bad stars congregate in the same sector, it's important that you vacate the room for the month. If this cannot be done, you must install Feng Shui cures to suppress them or they will bring misfortunes of the most severe kind. However, you do not have to worry if the bad stars fly into a storeroom, toilet, garage or a missing corner because its negative effect is said to be contained and dissolved. The effect, whether good or bad, is lesser when the number appears alone.

The Annual Xuan Kong/Flying Stars apply to all homes, regardless of the Time Period in which they were built. The Annual Stars can act as catalysts or triggers within each compass sector, and you should examine their interaction with the natal Xuan Kong probability combination of the Siang Sin, Main Star and Chor Sin within each compass sector to determine how strong or weak the annual influence may be. It also helps to look ahead at the monthly flying stars to see when the annual positive and negative factors will be doubled or enhanced by monthly stars.
