2021 - Year of YIN METAL OX (COW)

FEBRUARY 12, 2021 - JANUARY 31, 2022

The "Yin Golden Metal Ox"!

General Overview of The Yin Golden Metal OX / COW Year

The Year of The Yin Metal Ox (Cow) 2021

2021 Chinese New Year Day is on Friday, February 12, 2021. The first day of the 2021 Chinese Astrology Year is on February 3, 2021. This date is different from Chinese New Year Day, which is from Chinese lunar calendar.

About the Chinese Calendar

The Chinese calendar is commonly known as the Farmer’s Calendar or the Hsia Calendar. It is a fascinatingly accurate system that not only records the passage of time but is also used as a tool for Chinese fortune-telling. One of the most famous fortune-telling systems used today by professionals is called the Four Pillars of Destiny (BaZi).

The Hsia calendar always begins on Feb. 4 and lists the year, month, day, and hour in a series of Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth). As such, the system of the Four Pillars of Destiny means you can take the person’s birth data and convert them into Elements. From there, you can analyze a person’s destiny based on his or her birth date and better understand and accurately predict the cycles of a person’s fortune. In so doing, you can learn how to multiply the good luck or minimize the bad luck in life.

Additionally, the relationships of the Chinese Five Elements are believed to be the basic components of everything in the universe, including sounds, colors, shapes, directions, numbers, emotions, organs, and the list goes on. Hence, when you learn the sophisticated relationships of the Five Elements, you can say that you have a greater understanding of the theory of life.

The Year of the Metal Ox 2021 is likely to give rewards, but only if you work hard. Use your wits and put in the effort and you can make the most of the year. Don’t expect money to come easily and don’t think you can suddenly make money with gambling or investments. It takes solid planning and building a foundation to come out well financially. People who stay dedicated to what they want and focused on the end result can emerge successfully in this year.

The most prominent star in 2021 is the #6 Heaven Star. It’s linked to several good aspects of celestial luck. An unseen hand could be guiding you from the heavens. Everyone can tap into this luck in 2021 but in particular, those whose center sector of their home is kept energized and active in a positive manner. The Celestial Dragon is perfect to place in the home to encourage new and auspicious chances.

The Celestial Dragon also attracts helpful and supportive people such as mentors, patrons and someone who offers help on your way to success. If there are people or organizations who offer to help, be sure to invite their support into your life.

People in powerful positions – managers, bosses, company directors or other leaders – can benefit greatly this year. Great levels of authority give you the ability to make a difference in what takes place in whatever area you are involved in.

There is danger in 2021, however, and this comes from the highly afflictive #7 Robbery/Loss/Betrayal Star, which enters the Northwest - the sector that governs the luck of the patriarch's or the male leaders of a company, organization or even country. With the #7 in the NW, it could mean leaders in power anywhere could use their strength for the wrong reasons, causing harm.

This applies to the world in general. It sadly indicates fighting and possibly the threat of a war. It seems trade relations between the United States and China could be strained even more, causing negative effects on other countries as well. This is troublesome, because harmful alliances could be formed.

THE PAHT CHEE CHART FOR THE YEAR 2021

The Paht Chee chart reveals the impact of the annual five elements interacting with the animal signs. Analysis of the 2021's chart indicates as follow:

1) This is a time when rivals become even more antagonistic with one another, and when politicians could be even more underhanded. It’s critical to watch your back and trust only those you value greatly – those within your inner, established circle. But even then, it’s possible someone you deeply trust could let you down. The person to blame may not even realize what they’ve done, but they’ve betrayed you, nonetheless. It could be challenging to repair this relationship, whether it’s with one person or an entire group.

Carrying the Kuan Kung on Horseback Anti-Betrayal Amulet is strongly advised for anyone in a political position or someone in a business setting. This helps protect against betrayal by a trusted ally.

2) The Ox and Sheep clash in the year’s chart and could indicate that leaders may be powerful and effective within their own circle but meet with anger and opposition when connecting with those outside their comfort group, whether it’s people of another interest, leaders of another company or another country. Each person and group has a different plan in mind and it could be very difficult to reach a satisfying compromise.

Even within a family, there could be turmoil and discord, especially between spouses. Adding to this is the fact that the External Flower of Romance Star arrives, bringing problems of infidelity or temptation to couples. Displaying the Rabbit in the Moon Love Enhancer in your home, and carrying the Enhancing Relationship Amulet if you both agree to it, is the best combination of efforts to keep an outside person from entering your relationship and breaking it down.

3) An auspicious association between the Rat and Ox in this year’s Earthly Branches of the Year and Hour Pillar bodes well. This will appear to be a great blessing to help heal some of the damage that has occurred due to the Ox/Sheep clash. It’s likely that a rivalry and heated competition could still exist but it’s also possible that a truce can be called, and a friendship formed, at least to some degree.

Displaying the Perfect Partnerships to Attract Big Wealth Enhancer in an area of prominence in your home or office, such as your living room or dining room, helps bring a healthy allegiance into your life.

4) Noticeably absent from the chart is any significant wealth for 2021, due to a lack of Fire elements. Money can be made but it will not come easily. Those starting a new business need patience because it won’t be an overnight success and sales could take awhile to increase. Businesses that already felt a downturn should prepare to experience this again, with profits shrinking. Keep up with trends and think of new ways to keep your business moving forward.

However, even though wealth is limited in 2021, it’s still possible to make money. This year, there is HIDDEN WEALTH brought by the sign of the TIGER. What this means is that this is a year when you can lay the groundwork for higher wealth in the future but don’t become frustrated. Wearing red encourages wealth growth and carrying the Increase Your Wealth Luck Gold Talisman Card helps attract and energize wealth luck. Keeping light alive within your home, particularly in your West sector, taps into the power of the Wealth Star #8.

5) The Earth element in 2021 is able to affect recognition and power luck, increasing chances for a promotion and moving up the career ladder. It can mean climbing the ladder of success in any type of organization. If you are ambitious for career success, wear Earth colors and natural stones in 2021 to attract this in your life.

THE FOUR HIDDEN STARS IN THE 2021

The yearly Paht Chee chart highlights two positive and two negative hidden stars for the year 2021: the Star of Prospects, the Star of Powerful Mentors, the Aggressive Sword Star and the External Flower of Romance Star. Here is more information on each of those stars, beginning with the auspicious ones:

1) The Star of Prospects shows potential for an abundance of new opportunities arriving during the year. It gives off an energy that encourages those who work hard and stay determined. This is particularly in resonance with the Year of the Ox. Those who are enthusiastic and passionate about succeeding can reap rewards from this star. Those who truly put their mind to a goal and are not afraid of hard work can expect to achieve anything they desire. The more ambitious you are, the more you can achieve. Fully awaken and activate this star by placing an image of an Ox near you during the year.

2) One star from last year returns for 2021 and that is the Star of Powerful Mentors, a positive indication. It benefits students in particular, who can receive a boost from someone who takes an interest in their studies and offers to help.

The ambitious student who keeps an eye out for a mentor could be offered a door that opens to an honor or scholarship, and teachers or professors can be quite motivational. There will be multiple chances for supportive encouragement. Those who are just beginning a career may also find a mentor to take them under their wing and get them off to a good start. Some people may also benefit from a boss who notices your abilities and quickly offers a promotion.

The best of this star can be employed by displaying the Kuan Kung in your home. It’s well worth activating its energy for the great benefits it offers.

3) On the negative side, the Aggressive Sword Star ushers in extreme and aggressive energy. The underdog’s chi is given power and could cause a rise in combative or revolutionary activities. Revolting and rebelling against authority can occur, such as demonstrations or strikes. This can occur around the world. The causes may be important – police brutality, anti-discrimination, equality or other social causes – but the method will be hostile in nature, with violence and riots definitely a possibility.

This star brings violent bloodshed in many cases. To appease and subdue this intense anger, call on the Kumbum Stupa. Carrying the 28 Hums Protection Wheel Amulet with you helps give you personal protection from the worst of this hostility.

4) The threat to marriages is a real concern now, due to the External Flower of Romance Star. Any marriage is vulnerable to the stressing effects of this star and could be highlighted by an affair by the husband or wife. Arguments arise from misunderstandings and an outside person could bring heated passion to the marriage.

Keep this from harming your marriage by carrying the Enhancing Relationships Amulet. This is especially important if you already have a suspicion that your partner is interested in someone else. Displaying a pair of Marriage Happiness Mandarin Ducks in the Southwest sector at home also lends a healing factor to your marriage. If you feel an affair is already happening, carry the Marriage Saver Feng Shui Keychain.

Last but not least, do not forget to decorate your homes and offices with one or several auspicious OX figurines in the beginning of the year. They help usher in positive vibes and prosperity chi in welcoming the new year 2021!

The Year of the Metal Ox

In the Hsia calendar, 2021 is symbolized by two Chinese characters: Yin Metal and the Ox. Yin Metal is the Heavenly Stem (the character on the top), and the Ox is the Earthly Branch (the character on the bottom). The Ox is also an Earth Element. In the Five Elements cycle, Earth births Metal. Because the Earthly Branch (Earth) supports the Heavenly Stem (Metal), you can say that this combination represents a more harmonious relationship. Therefore, you might expect 2021 to be a more peaceful year.

In a way, you can use the Hsia calendar and the framework of the Five Elements cycles (birth and destruction) to understand the theme of the year. For example, 2018 was Yang Earth Dog (Earth). The Elements were the same. As such, we experienced some harmony. In particular, you can see that the U.S. and North Korea came to a temporary and peaceful agreement to halt nuclear testing. But 2019 was Yin Earth Pig. This was Earth over Water in a destructive relationship. Thus, the peace talks between the two countries broke down, and hostility between the U.S. and Iran intensified.

Qualities of Yin Metal

Before we dive into the details of my forecast, let’s explore the nature of this year’s Heavenly Stem and Earthly Branch. Though they do come together in a more harmonious relationship, don’t be fooled because the characteristic of Yin Metal is quite harsh.

Yin Metal is often compared to that of a delicate piece of jewelry, beautiful and graceful. However, the opposite nature of Yin Metal is cold and brutal, similar to a dagger. What’s more, the Ox sign is considered “winter earth” without warmth. When adding these cold Elements together, you’ll come to understand why the outlook and sentiment of 2021 will seem quite bleak, scary, and even dangerous.

Yin Metal is always associated with beauty because it represents fair skin, teeth, bones, and an oval-shaped face. Hence, plenty of beautiful women of our times were born on a Yin Metal Day. They are feminine, charming, and very pretty. Here are some outstanding examples: Angelina Jolie, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Grace Kelly, Ivanka Trump, Orianthi, Naomi Watts, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

As for the gents, many Yin Metal men showcase boyish good looks. They are handsome and some even have a baby face. They include Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Daniel Craig, former British Prime Minister David Cameron, George W. Bush, even Kim Jong-un, and Osama bin Laden.

Yin Metal is deceiving because though they may appear gentle, moderate, graceful, and sophisticated on the outside like a diamond, beware of the strong character inside, like a dangerous and destructive dagger. There’s a saying: “Beautiful on the outside but harsh on the inside.” This is why Yin Metal people can exhibit harsh and drastic behaviors with a tendency to take extreme actions to achieve their goals.

In fact, many famous serial killers were born on a Yin Metal Day. These include Cho Seung-Hui, the cold-blooded Korean killer who murdered 32 people at the Virginia Tech campus in 2007. Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings Flight 9525 co-pilot who deliberately crashed in the French Alps, killing all 150 passengers and crew members in 2015. Anders Breivik, the Norwegian extremist who shot and killed 69 young students in the Norwegian Utoya Island in 2011. Cheng Chieh, a Taiwanese university student who stabbed and injured 24 people and killed four inside a Taipei subway metro train in 2014.

There is a very popular BBC TV series called Killing Eve, and it is about a pretty woman assassin called Villanelle who is a charismatic psychopathic Russian assassin. The role is portrayed by actress Jodie Comer who won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Jodie was born on March 11, 1993, a Yin Metal Day. Interesting how such an actress can portray a character so well that she herself embodies the Yin Metal Element in true form: beautiful and deadly.

Qualities of the Ox

In the Hsia calendar, the Ox is the second of the 12 zodiac or celestial animals. The Ox is an Earth Element belonging to the winter season. Inside the Ox sign, it contains three hidden Elements: Earth, Metal, and Water. Hence, there is a total absence of Fire to support Earth. This is why, in BaZi, we say the Ox is the weakest Earth Element.

Whenever the Earth Element is out of balance (too weak or too strong), it triggers earth-related disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, avalanches, and volcanic eruptions. The famous “311,” or March 11, 2011, Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in North Japan actually occurred on an Ox Day. We’re not ruling out water disasters either because the Ox contains a powerful Water Element in the hidden stem, inciting floods, heavy rainstorms, and even tsunamis.

Furthermore, Earth is the road we drive on. Therefore, imbalanced Earth can trigger traffic accidents on the road. With Metal on top of the Ox, it symbolizes a car traveling on the road. As such, we can say that 2021 will bring more serious automobile accidents. Looking back 60 years prior, also a Yin Metal Ox Year, there were several serious road accidents. For example, on June 17, a train traveling from Paris to Strasbourg derailed and killed 24 passengers and injured 109. On Sept. 10, during the F1 Grand Prix in Italy, a Ferrari race car crashed into the spectators and 15 people died. Princess Diana also died on her Earth Penalty (Ox, Goat, Dog).

Four Pillars of Destiny

People born in the Year of the Ox (1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009) are said to be “offending the Grand Duke.” It means you are offending the energy of the year. Therefore, it is recommended to carry a jade pendant of the Rat to reduce the negative influence. Famous people who are offending the Ox Year include Meryl Streep, Richard Gere, Lionel Richie, Barack Obama, Michael J. Fox, and George Clooney.

The animal sign that is most unfavorable to the Ox is the Goat. If you were born in the Year of the Goat (1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015), you are in direct clash with the year. Clashes will bring turbulence, movements, accidents, or big changes. You can anticipate more traveling opportunities, and it is a good year to change jobs or move offices or houses. You must carry the Rat pendant for protection. Though traveling is ideal to satisfy the clash, it is not recommended to travel directly in the direction of the Grand Duke, which is in the Northeast this year. And you must take extreme care and refrain from participating in risky sports such as driving fast cars, piloting airplanes, skydiving, or parachuting. Famous people born in the Year of the Goat include Bill Gates, Bruce Willis, Rowan Atkinson, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, and Jason Statham.

Also, you can be under clash even if you were not born in the Goat Year. Particularly, if you were born on the Goat Day. The clash is even more severe, and you could face a challenging year ahead. This clash can also adversely impact your relationship area with a spouse or opposite sex. Take extra care. Famous people born on the Day of the Goat include Donnie Yan, Lady Gaga, and Dmitry Medvedev.

The celestial animals that combine with the Ox are the Rat, Rooster, and Snake. These animals are in a year of harmony. However, I do not recommend relying on this kind of astrology scheme because it is not based on the formal fortune-telling system. For a more reliable assessment of one’s fortune, it is best to use the full system of the Four Pillars of Destiny so that the entire birth chart is analyzed as a whole. Because animal signs can appear anywhere within the Four Pillars of a person’s chart, the clash and penalty commentaries are not just confined to the Year Pillar alone. As such, you must assess how the clash and penalty will impact the person’s Month, Day, and Hour Pillars as well.

The Ox is also part of the Three Earth Penalty. When the Ox encounters both the Dog and Goat signs, it will create a massive amount of unfavorable Earth Element. If this is an unfavorable Element to a person, he or she will suffer hardships ranging from a bad relationship, legal trouble, incessant worrying, automobile accident, even cancer. An example is President Donald Trump. He was born in the Year of the Dog, Day of the Goat, and is currently in the Luck of the Ox. Therefore, the Ox Year will trigger this Earth Penalty. Other famous people under this penalty include J.K. Rowling, Julia Roberts, Angela Merkel, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bill Gates.

Finally, the Ox is a Nobleman year for those born on the Day or Year of Yang Wood, Yang Earth, or Yang Metal or if you were born in years ending 4, 8, and 0, such as 1954, 1968, or 1980. Nobleman means angels are coming from Heaven to offer rescue and support. The Nobleman star often brings a solution to obstacles and dangers; thus, it helps to make the year feel more comfortable and smooth. If 2021 is your Nobleman year, go ahead and take the chance to develop new projects.

The Sexagenary Cycle

As you learn more about the Hsia calendar and the system of the Four Pillars of Destiny, you’ll understand that everything is in a repeating, 60-year cycles (120, 180, 240, etc.). All you have to do is simply look back and revisit history to learn about the future. For example, 60 years ago, 1961 was a Yin Metal Ox Year. This was a significant year as the world entered a phase of serious global tensions between the U.S. and the USSR. It was also the year John F. Kennedy — born on a Yin Metal Day — took office as U.S. president. He was tasked with handling the confrontation with the USSR, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the building of the Berlin Wall to separate West and East Germany.

In August 1961, the Berlin Wall was erected to restrict movements between West Berlin and East Berlin. On Oct. 27, a standoff between Soviet and American tanks at Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin heightened the Cold War tensions and placed the world at the brink of a nuclear war. In December, the U.S. sent 18,000 military advisors to South Vietnam, and American involvement in the Vietnam War officially began.

As stated earlier, Yin Metal is often compared to that of a cold, brutal weapon. As such, this can be associated with terrorist attacks, assassinations, and coups d’etat. Such events have occurred in Yin Metal Ox Years of 1961 (60 years earlier), 1901 (120 years earlier), and 1841 (180 years earlier)!

For example, the First Opium War was a series of military engagements fought between Britain and the Qing Dynasty of China. The year 1841 was the most violent, resulting in the Treaty of Nanking in 1842. China lost the war and agreed to make Hong Kong island a crown colony, ceding it to the British Queen Victoria.

The year 1901 was a year of assassinations and assassination attempts. For example, U.S. President William McKinley was assassinated in New York, and German Emperor Wilhelm II survived a failed assassination attempt. In 1961, Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo Patrice Lumumba was assassinated as well.

Such events also stirred attempts to overthrow the government. On April 18, 1901, a coup was attempted against the ruler of Portugal, Antonio de Oliveira Salazar. In South Korea, Park Chung-hee took over control by a military coup on May 16. On May 30, the despot of the Dominican Republic was killed in an ambush. On Sept. 28, a military coup occurred in Damascus, Syria, resulting in the replacement of the United Arab Republic with the Syrian Republic. On Nov. 19, there was another military uprising in the Dominican Republic that overthrew the Trujillo regime. And the list goes on. You see, by looking at our history, you can already predict and foresee how the future will shape itself once again.

Moving on to the behavior of Mother Nature. Serious earth-related disasters were associated with Yin Metal Ox Years. You can pick a handful of significant examples. For instance, in 1901, the Black Sea earthquake, also known as the Balchik earthquake, clocked in at a 7.2 magnitude at the Northeast coast of Bulgaria. This was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in the Black Sea. In May 1901, a serious mining accident in South Wales killed 81 miners. On June 1, 1961, another serious 6.5 magnitude earthquake shook the Karakore region in Ethiopia. On July 8, a mining explosion left 108 people dead in Czechoslovakia.  On Jan. 10, 1962 — which is still in the Yin Metal Ox Year — an avalanche in Peru caused 4,000 deaths.

Because of the Fire Element’s total absence, the powerful Water Element from 2020 will continue into 2021. This will cause more Water (sea) and Fire (air) disasters. You see, in May 1901, a big fire broke out and destroyed 2,368 structures in Jacksonville, Florida. Or on Feb. 15, 1961, the Sabena Flight 548 crashed and killed 73 on board the plane in Belgium. The following month on March 13, a dam burst in Kyiv, killing 145 people. On April 8, a passenger liner called Dara blew up and sank off the coast of Dubai, killing 238 passengers and crew members. On Nov. 8, Imperial Airlines Flight 201/8 crashed in Virginia, killing 77 people. And on Dec. 17, a circus tent in Brazil caught fire and killed more than 500 people.

It’s bleak! But on the upside, we can expect 2021 to bring us a year of innovation. For instance, in 1961, a Yin Metal Ox Year, this was a significant time for space exploration. It was the year the USSR put the first man into space. The Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was sent to space on April 12 and orbited Earth. A second cosmonaut, Gherman Titov, was sent to space on Aug. 6. Furthermore, a Russian spaceship called Venera 1 was sent to explore the planet Venus on Feb. 12. The U.S. also succeeded in sending their spaceman Alan Shepard to space on May 5 and again on July 21. Elementally speaking, it is not clear why the Yin Metal Ox Year brought on significant progress in space exploration. One factor to consider is that the Yin Metal Element is the image of a dagger or sharp needle, which mimics the shape of a rocket. We’ll have to wait and see what 2021 brings as President Trump touted the recent establishment of the Space Force — the first new U.S. military branch established since the Air Force in 1947. He also referenced NASA’s Artemis program of crewed lunar exploration. Artemis aims to put astronauts on the surface of the moon by 2024 and use Earth’s nearest neighbor as a training ground for a crewed mission to Mars in the 2030s.

Health

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the Metal Element represents the breathing organs, including the lung, nose, and skin. As Metal needs Fire to melt it into useful tools, when the Fire Element is missing, the Metal Element becomes imbalanced and unhealthy. Therefore, the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic could be the culprit to the weakness of Metal Element or the lungs. In 2021, we will continue to see this health trend, including more prevalent cases of the flu and viral infections affecting people’s breathing organs (lungs, nose, skin).

Furthermore, because Fire is totally absent, the Earth Element of the Ox is very weak, contributing to the weakness of the stomach such as digestive problems and diabetes. The weakness of Fire means Fire organs are also impacted. They include the heart, blood circulation, and overall vitality of the body. The excessive amount of Water this year could wreak havoc on the urinary system, kidneys, and reproductive organs.

The biggest culprit here is the weakness of Fire. To bring balance, one can consider taking certain health supplements such as antioxidants and Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Be sure to check with your licensed health provider for the adequate use of these supplements.

Stock Market and Economic Outlook

The fearful energy of the Water Element cycle is going to take over and prevail in the coming year. Pessimism, cynicism, and despair will set in and contribute to economic decline. Any activities will also lead to longer-term setbacks, and more economic crises will arise. Because Fire is lost until 2025, we can expect a longer bearish market ahead.

But which industries can still thrive in a bearish market?

Industries belonging to the Fire Element can expect prosperity because Fire conquers Metal, and Metal is Fire’s money. Fire industries include energy, power generation, restaurants, and entertainment.

Next are industries belonging to the Earth Element because Earth conquers Water and produces Metal. Metal means activity and productivity, and Water inside the Ox also means money, and Water is Earth’s money. Earth industries include real estate, land development, mining, insurance, computer software, and technology.

The Metal industries will face serious competition this year. They include automobiles, engineering, banking, and machinery.  The Water industries will also not make money this year because there is a total absence of Fire, which is Water’s money Element. Such industries include shipping, transportation, communication, and beverages. The money prospect for the Wood industries is also weak because, while the Ox is Wood’s money Element, this Ox is very weak. These industries include fashion, media, books, the environment, and climate change.

In summary, industries belonging to the Fire and Earth Elements will prosper and make progress. All other industries will suffer or experience an uphill climb.

Global Outlook

In the Five Elements system, the Fire Element is happiness and optimism. The Fire years prevailed between 2013 and 2017. Fire’s presence can boost people’s confidence about the economy and consequently, promote good performance in the stock market. This was the main driving force behind the stock market boom in those years. However, the cycle of the Fire Element ended in 2017 with Yin Fire Rooster. And then when the Dog Year arrived in 2018, Fire entered the grave, resulting in a setback in the economic atmosphere and creating a lackluster, zero-sum year. Then, the Year of the Yin Earth Pig in 2019 represented the termination of the Fire Element. The pessimism of the Water energy — the symbolic emotion related to fear — has begun. Hence, the world economy has been greatly affected by the trade war talks between the

U.S. and China, which generated a lot of fear and uncertainty for global investors.

The years 2019, 2020, and 2021 all belong to the Water and Metal Elements, and the Fire Element does not return until the year 2025. Because 2019 represented the termination of Fire, 2020 means Fire enters the embryo stage. Finally, in 2021, Fire moves into the nourishing cycle. Therefore, the general economic atmosphere is mostly bearish, and the economic pace is gloomy and slow even in 2021.

Remember the last recession of 2008? It was also a Rat Year. The collapse of the mortgage business generated fear and catapulted the financial tsunami that lasted from 2008 until 2013 when the Fire Year returned. And so, in 2020, the powerful Water Year brought on the COVID-19 pandemic, generating insurmountable fear, forcing the world to come to a standstill and shutting down most of the international trade and travels, resulting in grave worldwide economic impact.

Going into 2021, the strong influence of Water will continue to cast a dark shadow of fear all over the world. The atmosphere will feel dull, cold, and gray. The continuous decline in economic growth will force investors to be more conservative and the public to spend less (demand will go down).

In general, the Yin Metal Ox Year (with Yin Metal on the top and weak Earth on the bottom), is a symbol of a harsh and cold atmosphere that incites disharmony, conflict, assassination, and terrorism. As the world economy continues to decline, the atmosphere of distrust will lead to more social unrest, political struggles, international tensions, assassinations, subversions, and coups.

Plus, with the drastic and extreme nature of Yin Metal, brute force and cold-blooded killing will frequent the news and heighten the emotional intensity of the year. People may choose to resort to violence in achieving their ideology and bring about more protests, demonstrations, and anti-government sentiments.

Natural disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, sea and air accidents, environmental disasters, and world epidemics will continue to persist and prevail.

Feng Shui

The energy of your home and office will also change from year to year. Therefore, it is necessary to address the reallocation of good and bad stars at the beginning of the year.

This year, the bad energy called “Five Yellow” (or Star 5) that symbolizes obstacles and misfortune will reside in the Southeast sector. It’s best to hang a six-metal rod wind chime to dissolve this bad star. The worst months will be in April, October, and January 2021.

Star 2 is the next bad star, which brings sickness and worries, and it will reside in the North. The traditional method is to use a string of six metal coins.

The Grand Duke is in the Northeast this year, so it’s best not to “move earth” or make substantial construction work in this direction. Also, it is not recommended for one to sit with his or her back to the East. Otherwise, you will be sitting against the unfavorable energy called “Three Shars,” or “Three Killings,” and this can bring bad luck. Furthermore, the Southwest is in a clash position against the Grand Duke, which is not favorable.

Star 3 relates to conflict and robbery, and it resides in the Southwest. Use a piece of red paper to minimize this negative influence. Also, Stars 6 and 7 can create legal problems and scandals, respectively. The traditional solution is to place three bamboo stems in a clear glass vase in the Center and Northwest positions, respectively.

Other

A few interesting things to point out about today’s world leaders. The year 2021 is favorable for U.S. President Donald Trump, but the Ox will create Three Earth Penalty, which will bring him more challenges and enemies. However, Joe Biden is weak fire person and the metal and earth of 2021 are unfavorable, so he will face tough year ahead until his favorable Tiger year comes in 2022.

This is also a favorable year for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, so his power remains very strong.

The Metal and Earth Elements are also supportive of North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, but the year shows his competitor. As such, we could see him sharing some power with his sister, Kim Yo-jong. On a side note, the missing Fire Element will continue to affect Kim Jong-un’s health.

Last year Chinese President Xi Jinping was under clash with the Rat. This year, the clash is finished, and the Metal (money) and Earth (intelligence) Elements are also his favorable Elements, indicating that China could regain more stability and prosperity in the economy and world standing ...

The 2021 Year of Ox Flying Star Feng Shui Chart

The 2020 year of Rat has been a crazy year for many of us. The Covid-19 throws a curveball and affects our health, work, school, economy, and daily activities. Some countries manage better and others are still struggling to control the pandemic. Many weaknesses and problems are exposed during this time such as health care, nursing home, education system, politics, social and racial injustice, or the extreme imbalance of the rich and poor. There will be a lot of work ahead to recover, rebuild, and change the old systems.

The 2021 year of Ox will certainly bring some positive changes, but there is no quick and easy turnaround. Our actions and decisions can make a difference. The way we manage and react to new challenges will decide the outcome. The Feng Shui chart can help us understand the luck and trends, but we have the power to create our realities.

The 2021 Flying Star Feng Shui Chart

The Chinese year of the Ox starts from February 12, 2021, until January 31, 2022. We can start to see the transition around December 2020 and January 2021.

There are 9 Flying stars that go to different sections each year. Each of the 9 stars has its own meanings. The stars also interact with various directions (or sectors) and create new energy.

The five-element theory plays an important part in the luck of each area. See the five-element chart below for the related stars, the generating cycles, and the controlling cycles. If this is too complicated, you can skip the theory part and go straight to the recommended Feng Shui cure and remedy.

Below is the basic annual Flying Star Feng Shui chart for the 2021 year of the Ox. In general, the Red shaded areas are auspicious and lucky, and the blue shaded areas are inauspicious and need remedy.

The 2021 Feng Shui chart section by section

Below are the meaning of the star in each of the 9 sections and the recommended Feng Shui remedy or suggestion based on the five-element theory.

We start from the center and go clockwise.

Center

The number 6 can be a wealth star. We can activate money luck in the center by setting up a money altar, treasure chest, or other symbols of abundance such as money frog, Qi Lin, Pi Xiu, and crystals.

The number 6 White star is related to the physical type of career such as police, athlete, construction, firefighter, and so on. Since this star is in the center of the chart, these types of careers will be highlighted in 2021.

West

West is also an auspicious area. We can increase the Earth elements to enhance the power of the number 8 success star. Add more Earth element such as the color of yellow, brown, beige, or earth material such as soil or ceramic/pottery.

Northwest

The number 7 red star goes to the Northwest in 2021. Number 7 star can bring argument, fighting, gossip, and lawsuit. We can modify the energy by reducing the Metal element or increase the Water element.

Reduce the color of white, silver, gold, or metal furniture in the Northwest.

Increase Water elements such as blue, black colors, or actual water such as a fish tank or water fountain.

North

Number 2 is an illness star. We can add more Metal to reduce the number 2 star (Earth).

Add color of white, silver, gold, or any metal material here.

Avoid construction in the North in 2021.

Northeast

The number 9 Purple star goes to the Northeast in 2021. This is an auspicious star related to festive events, relationships, and prosperity.

We can activate wealth luck here just like in the center area (star 6). Set up money jar, crystal, or other symbols of wealth and prosperity (money toad, money god, Qi Lin, dragon…).

East

The number 4 star goes to the East in 2021. This is a star of intelligence, talent, and relationship luck.

East is a good place to set up your home office, kid’s bedroom, or desk for study in 2021.

We can enhance the intelligence luck by display the Chinese paintbrush or the Wen Chang pagoda.

Because both the East and number 4 star are Wood element. We can add some Fire element to reduce excess Wood. Add color of red, purple, orange, or anything giving out light and heat such as a lamp, candle, or electronic.

Southeast

The number 5 Yellow misfortune star flies to the Southeast in 2021. We can increase the Metal element to reduce the number 5 star. Display metal objects such as a bronze bell or metal wind chime.

We can also display Fire elements such as red/orange color, candlelight, or salt lamp. The Fire element can balance the energy of the number 5 star (Earth) and the Southeast (Wood).

Avoid any construction here during the year of Ox.

South

The number 1 White star goes to the South in 2021. This is a very auspicious star for career success, fame, and wealth. It is also a timely star in period 8.

The south belongs to the Fire element and is conflicting with the Water element of the number 1 star. So we can either reduce the Water element (less blue/black color and avoid fish tank here) or increase the Wood element (add more plants or green color) to balance the water and fire.

Southwest

The number 3 Jade star goes to Southwest. This star can bring conflict, argument, gossip, and legal trouble in period 8.

We can balance the number 3 star (Wood) and the Southwest (Earth) by adding a Fire element.

Add more red/orange/purple color, or candle, salt lamp, crystal (Amethyst) in the Southwest.

As a general rule, set up important rooms such as a living room or master bedroom in the auspicious areas. Spend more time in those areas can help activate the luck too.

For the inauspicious areas, use the suggested colors or 5-element related products to adjust the energy.

Each room can also be a small universe to have the chart overlay on the top. Find the lucky corners in the room and set up important furniture there.

Or set up your furniture so you can face the lucky directions when you sit down or lie down (head pointing to the lucky direction).

Flying Star Feng Shui

Flying Star Feng Shui or Xuan Kong Fei Xing is a complex practice of feng shui that draws from many aspects of the tradition. It blends the doctrines of the five elements, eight trigrams, Lo Shu numbers, twenty-four mountains and the yin and yang to create an astrological chart and evaluation system for the energy flow of buildings and spaces.

This system was originally published in a book by Shen Zhu Ren during the Qing dynasty (1642-1912) and gained great popularity that continues until this day. Flying Star Feng Shui is differentiated from other approaches to feng shui by its incorporation of a time dimension to study the cycles of change in chi or energy flow. The Flying Star chart corresponds to nine twenty year periods that make up a 180 year cycle. We are currently in the period 8.

There are nine different feng shui flying stars, each correlating to the sector of the Lo Shu square. Those who are familiar with feng shui may already know that each number of the Lo Shu square corresponds to a different element, direction, color, symbolic animal, type of energy, influence over one’s life and member of the family. There are also monthly and even daily cycles of flying star energy.

In general, Flying Star Feng Shui is known to be incredibly complex and can take years to master but fortunately many feng shui experts provide frequent updates and forecasts for flying stars in a simplified manner so that individual knowledge of the entire system is not necessary.

Flying Star Feng Shui is considered one of the most powerful formulas in feng shui. Each flying star carries both negative/untimely and positive/timely energies that are alternately activated by the period we are in. Depending on the period, a star will either show its good side or rear its ugly head. Stars number one, six, eight and nine are considered to be timely in the period 8. Star eight in particular is known as the most timely or auspicious and is often called the Prosperous or Noble Star. The other stars, #two, three, five and seven are untimely and hence will bring bad luck.

Each annual flying star will reside in one of the 9 sectors in the Lo Shui square for the entire year. It’s important for Feng Shui practitioners to find out the location of the star so that they know if the installation of any cure, remedy or enhancer is necessary. You need to pay extra attention when the untimely stars fly into the sector where your maindoor, living room and bedroom are located. On the other hand, you should be happy when the timely stars come visit those areas. 

Below are the energy associations of each flying star and the cures or enhancers recommended to overcome or activate them. Look at the auspicious energies when the star is timely (in Period 8), or the negative energies when untimely.

Flying Star #1 (Timely) (Water)
Auspicious energies: Victory, fame, fortune, intelligence and well-being
Negative energies: break-ups, divorce, drowning, sexual misfortune such as involvement with the sex trade, sexual disease and disorders. Other illness energy includes diabetes and earaches.

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.

Refer to the chart below to locate the afflicted and lucky sectors up to year 2020 so that you have ample time to take the necessary measures to either subdue the inauspicious stars or enhance the auspicious ones.

Here we want to tell you which houses are Rich House, Love House, Intelligent House, Sick House, Bad-Luck House in 2021 using the theory of Feng Shui Flying Stars.

This is from the foundation of Chinese philosophy. The theory can apply on Chinese Astrology and Feng Shui world. The universe is divided into three parts. The first part is Heaven, the second part is Earth and the third one is for all living species. Humans are between Heaven and Earth. The human life is affected by the seasonal (Heaven) and environmental (Earth) changes.

Therefore, the human life cycle should be the similar cycles of Heaven and Earth. Heaven is related to Sky. The main Sky cycle to human is from the Sun. People make daily calendar cycle from the position of Sun. The Flying Star diagram is calculated from Sun calendar. Therefore, every calendar year has its own (Sky/Heaven) Flying Star diagram. Every house in the Earth has its own (Earth) Flying Star diagram. Everybody has his or her (Human) Flying Star diagram based on their birth year.

Flying Star numerology has the theory of overlapping Kua Numbers between Heaven Calendar Flying Star diagram and Earth House Flying Star diagram. When certain two numbers are overlapping together, certain natural phenomenon will create and human will have certain responses. The following are some overlapping number combinations which can change the Feng Shui environmental luck to people. This valuable information can help people to find their right houses on their right timing.

Using the the theory of Feng Shui overlapping Kua Numbers, we will know which house has potential to enhance people's luck in wealth, career or love. Then we look for which bedroom or office will be impacted by Yearly Flying Stars. If you need money luck, then you have to find the House of Wealth. If you are in the House of Debt, then you have to make sure your bedroom or office in the Room of Debt.

Flying Star Feng Shui for The Year of the Yin Metal Ox, 2021

In 2021, the most important areas to enhance and treat for most people will be related to their health, finances and career as COVID has had such an enormous effect on the health and finances of the world. The most problematic areas for 2021 are the North, East, Southeast, Southwest and Northwest as these areas will either have an inauspicious annual star or an annual affliction located here during the year of the yin metal Ox.

If your bedroom, office or other significant, frequently used room is located in the North, East, Southeast, Southwest or Northwest and you cannot move out of this room during 2021, please do not be alarmed as there is always something that can be done to turn bad into good and weaken the harmful influences situated here.

In 2021, the southwest is a very afflicted area as we have the annual #3 robbery and legal star located here along with Sui Po in the same sector which can cause many issues related to relationships, legal matters, wealth, career and health.

Those who have their main door or important room such as a study, bedroom, kitchen or living room in the southwest will need to take great care in the year of the Ox to avoid the problems that come with these afflictions. This may sound frightening to read if you have a main door in the southwest but please remember, knowing about a potential problem and having the relevant cures in place you can avoid many issues occurring in the year of the Ox.

We always suggest free or cheap solutions that you can implement with items that you already have in your homes such as different furniture or coloured pillows.

Using colours and shapes to enhance and weaken the Flying stars will not be as effective when they are not placed alongside Feng Shui cures. However, we have always believed that Feng Shui should be accessible to everyone so that they can make the most out of their circumstances with ease. By reading the advice below, you can make 2021 a very successful year for you, your family, and friends so please be sure to check back throughout the year.

We also strongly recommend taking a look at the Chinese animal predictions for 2021 as this will give a highly detailed outlook into how the year of the Ox will be for each of the twelve Chinese animals, giving you the best chance to take advantage of the year ahead and make it a successful one for you.

What date do the Flying stars change in 2021?

On 3rd February 2021, the Flying stars will change all around the world in every single home, office, business and building which will bring an enormous change to the energy when we have the annual #6 star enter the centre of every building. The #6 star Liu Bai heavenly star which is usually considered relatively auspicious star but as we move closer to period nine in 2024 this can bring a lot of problems in an Ox year when sat in the centre as the influence can infuse through the other eight compass sectors, and we will need some very powerful Feng Shui cures to avoid wealth loss, deception, gossip and backstabbing issues in the year of the Ox.

2021 brings us another year closer to period 9 (2024 – 2044), and this will be another year of change and unrest although nowhere near as bad as 2020.

We will see again more natural disasters taking place around the world during the year of the Ox related to weather changes and the fires around the globe we predicated in 2020 are likely again this year.

Unfortunately, the annual effect can bring problems that are out of our control. However, we do have the control with Feng Shui to avoid issues in our own home and business with the help of the annual flying stars by following the Feng Shui advice on these pages.

Please read this advice and act on it as this year you will need your 2021 annual Feng Shui cures and enhancers more than ever and preparing now will enable you to prepare for the year ahead, prevent problems and ensure a successful year. We’ve been making these forecasts for over 21 years with overwhelming accuracy, and we do know the year ahead could be another rough ride so please be prepared.

Last year we recommended that you are cautious with money and investments, and in 2021, this will, unfortunately, be the same although not as bad as last year and we should see a recovery.

You must enhance and protect wealth and opportunities and overall good luck, and you must activate the west, south, northeast, centre and east of your home or office; We will speak about how to do this below.

Remember, there is so much we can do to ensure the best year possible; we alert you to the potential upcoming bad luck for the year and provide solutions with where and how to place your Feng Shui cures and enhancers.

For example, those born in the year of the Sheep/Goat may be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Yin Metal Ox Xin Chou.

We are really excited about 2021 as there will be a lot of good to come out of it with the energies present this year. We found that every single home is different with its positive and negative attributes; no two buildings will ever be the same and will always be prone to change so if you feel worried that you have a negative star in an important room this year, just remember that nothing is stagnant in Feng Shui and luck is continually moving around to help you make the most of your circumstances and improve the quality of Qi in your home or office.

However, by placing the annual cures and enhancers, you can eliminate or reduce these problems. If you are or were a heavy drinker, and already have stomach or bowel problems, then the cures and enhancers could certainly reduce stomach or bowel issues. If you’re a heavy drinker and wish to give up, then 2021 is the ideal time. Remember, the flying stars will dictate the problems, but there’s much you can do to lessen or eliminate the problem by following Feng Shui advice annually and monthly.

Those born in the year of the Sheep/Goat could be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Ox as the Sheep/Goat is the conflict animal of the Ox. Those born in the year of the Sheep/Goat should be aware of potential difficulties they may encounter during the year and take extra care in whatever they do without taking unnecessary risks in all aspects of their life.

If you follow the advice here, you can avoid many problems; please do not worry. It should be noted that there are five different types of each Chinese Animal (fire, water, wood, earth, metal) which depends on the year you were born and each different animal will have different predictions for the year ahead.

For example
Metal Goat: 1931, 1991
Water Goat: 1943, 2003
Wood Goat: 1955, 2015
Fire Goat: 1967
Earth Goat: 1919, 1979

With regards to the arrangement of the Xuan Kong Flying Stars in 2021, we will have the #8 white Ba Bai, prosperous star fly into the west on 3rd February 2021; the #8 star is the governing wealth star for period 8 (2004 – 2024) and can create a lovely influence when activated correctly as this will help resonate the auspicious energy throughout the rest of the building. In 2021 the #8 star conflicts the west Trigram Tui which is a metal star, and this will weaken the #8 earth star and the most powerful cure, and enhancer you can place in the west of your home, office or shop is the Wu Wang Bu Li Master Cure along with the Lung Feng Fu – Wealth Dragon & Phoenix statue as these two cures work in synergy with each other to help create bountiful wealth luck and new opportunities in 2021.

All of the cures and enhancers we have mentioned are for 2021. Although we do recommend alternatives for every area of your home as we like to offer as much advice as possible.

Where is the #2 star located in my home and office in 2021?

As of 3rd  February 2021, the #2 annual star can be found in the North of every home, office, and building around the world and when activated can bring illness to anyone in the building. The North can be very dangerous in 2021.

The traditional way to cure the #2 star and stop it from becoming activated is to place a row of six metal I-Ching coins in a row in the North from 3rd  February 2021 until 3rd February 2022; when choosing your coins, please make sure you get them from a reputable store as they must be from a good dynasty if they are to weaken the negative influence of the north this year. It is also important to place a salt water cure in the North of your home or office to weaken the impact of this sector and also avoid the annual #2 star from being activated.

What is likely to activate the annual #2 star in 2021?

  • Digging holes
  • Laying foundations
  • Refitting a bathroom or kitchen
  • Playing the drums
  • Having a children’s playroom in the North
  • Having a generator running in the North
  • Using power tools for several days in the North
  • Playing loud music repetitively
  • Having too many earth colours in the east (brown, terracotta, beige or yellow)

Where is the #5 star located in my home and office in 2021?

As of 3rd  February 2021, the annual #5 yellow can be found in the southeast of your home and office. The annual #5 star is very unbalanced in the southeast wood palace in 2021 and will need to be handled with care as activating the star with the wrong elements or noise can bring health issues, bad luck, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. The #5 star has no gender and no trigram and is highly treacherous when disturbed, so please read the advice for the southeast below.

Avoid making loud noises and groundbreaking in the southeast this year as this will likely activate the malicious effects of the annual #5 star.

What is likely to activate the annual #5 star in 2021?

  • Digging holes
  • Laying foundations
  • Refitting a bathroom or kitchen
  • Playing the drums
  • Having a children’s playroom in the southeast
  • Having a generator running in the southeast
  • Using power tools for several days in the southeast
  • Playing loud music repetitively
  • Having too many earth colours in the southeast (brown, terracotta, beige or yellow)

Regardless of if you are likely to do any of the activities above in the southeast this year, prevention is always the best cure in Feng Shui, and it is important to place a set of 6 coins in a row along with a salt water cure in the southeast to weaken the vicious effects of the annual #5 star. It is also essential to place a six rod hollow metal wind chime in the southeast along with other good quality metal cures.

In 2021, year of the Yin Metal Ox Xin Chou, Tsai Shen Yeh is one of the most essential annual Feng Shui cures and enhancers to place in the southeast to protect your wealth and good luck. In 2021 you should only use gold coloured Tsai She Yeh and not tempted to use a red one as it can cause problems.

A Flying star natal chart has a stable mix of good and bad flying stars with five auspicious stars and four inauspicious stars, and in period 8, the inauspicious stars are the 2, 3, 5, and 7 stars. In 2021, we must treat these stars with the relevant Annual Cures and Enhancers for the year as when disturbed or left untreated; they can cause all sorts of problems related to wealth, stress, illness, disputes, legal issues, death and much more so please make sure that you read through carefully on how to avoid issues during the year of the Ox.

If the auspicious stars fall into a spare room, bathroom or other less frequently used room, this is good as there will be less human interaction to activate the stars.

If the southeast, North, southeast or northwest fall into an important room in your home or office such as a bedroom, living room, study or office this year, it is essential that you do not panic as you will soon discover that by the end of reading this article, you are loaded with an arsenal of cures and advice that will help you to avoid these problems.

The best thing you can do when preparing for the year of the Ox is to make sure that you prepare early. So please be sure to plan early to ensure your 2021 Cures and Enhancers are in place on 3rd  February 2021 to give yourself the best start to the year.

What can I do to prepare for Chinese New Year 2021?

Every year, we write about how you can plan for the Chinese New Year and 2021, year of the Ox, we would start by reading through the 2021 Annual Flying Stars and then take a look at the 2021 Chinese Animal Predictions.

For the past twenty-two years, we have given this Feng Shui advice for free to hundreds of thousands of Feng Shui masters, practitioners, students and general enthusiasts all around the world to help them make the most of their home and business and ensure that their year ahead is as trouble-free and prosperous as it can be.

Our ethos is always to provide different alternatives that can be found around your home if you do not want to place the cures or cannot afford them as we believe that good Feng Shui should be available to the masses. While just using colours and shapes alone will not be as effective as placing the relevant Feng Shui cures and enhancers for 2021, they will still be a lot better than leaving home or office to chance as it is.

I cannot afford to purchase these cures or enhancers this year, and my partner does not believe in Feng Shui, what should I do?

Feng Shui is not about having your house covered in Cures and enhancers; it is about using carefully selected cures in the right position to make sure they are as effective as they can be. You can also avoid problems and enhance your property by using colours, objects and the five elements – metal, water, wood, fire, earth.

Another misconception with Feng Shui is that it is a religion; Feng Shui is a way of life that helps you make the most of the different aspects to your life, similar with how the Danish will practise Hygge.

If you would prefer not to place a Wu Lou beside your bed or hang Six Chinese I-Ching coins in a row in the southeast and North on display in your home in 2021, you can always place them behind a picture frame or ornament so that visitors will not see them; this will make the cures a little less effective if they are inside a cupboard although they will help a lot more than if you did not have them at all.

For the southeast and North in 2021, we would introduce some good quality heavy metal ornaments in your home and business. Please make sure the metal that you introduce is smooth and round such as a gym weight, dog bowl or frying pan and be sure to avoid sharp edges such as knives or nails.

Another potent cure for the southeast and North in 2021 is to place a salt water cure in these areas to absorb negative energy. If you do not wish to use these, you can place a bowl of ultra-clean, still water but please be sure to make sure that the water is changed at least once a week and never let it stagnate as this will reflect around the whole home.

The salt water cure is a much safer option to use and will be a lot more effective, although if you are looking for a discreet cure, I would try the still water. I do not always like to recommend using a bowl because they can get dirty especially if you live in a hot country and can cause many problems, so please be careful with this if you do not use the salt cure.

For the west and centre, we would introduce some real quartz crystal in these two areas from 3rd  February 2021 as we have the annual #6 and #8 stars here and will need some good earth elements to enhance these two auspicious stars. If you are using objects around your home to place in these areas, try to keep them square in shape as this will feed the earth element and enhance wealth and overall luck in 2021.

The most potent and influential cure and enhancer for 2021 is the Wu Wang Bu Li master cure this cure can only to be used in a Yin metal Ox year. The last time that this powerful cure and enhancer would have been used was in 1961 although only a privileged few got to use it due to Feng Shui cures being less accessible back then, and I was only three years old then (Michael) so any talk of Feng Shui then would have fallen on deaf ears.

The Wu Wang Bu Li master cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2021 and as this falls into the west, it will affect the youngest female and all females in general in the home or office and will be needed especially for wealth in 2021.

We usually offer more advice for free alternatives to each compass sector than we recommend products. The first thing we advise is to make sure your home or office is free of clutter and to take a look through this article and implement the free recommendations.

South (1 White) - Brings Triumph and Success.

Kan 1 White, In 2021, Kan (Tang Lang) trigram flies comfortably into the South.

Kan #1 is a water element. In the physical body, it is the ear. Internal organ it is the kidneys, and it is also blood. It also affects career and luck.

In the year of the Ox, as of 3rd of February 2021, the annual #1 water star Kan (Tan Lang) has flown into the south of every home, office, and building around the world. The inherent energy of the south is fire which will be controlling energy from the visiting annual star, and we will need to introduce some powerful cures to maximise the visiting energy in this area in 2021.

The south is especially essential for the youngest female of the household and all females in general. To activate the south and enhance wealth, relationship, and career luck, we will need to introduce metal to bridge the gap of elements in the form of a Huangjin Caifu Chuan wealth ship and a special wealth ingot

The main cure that you should place in the south is the Huangjin Caifu Chuan wealth ship as this is a potent and traditional cure and enhancer to enhance and protect the annual #1 future wealth star. When placed in your home or office, the Huangjin Caifu Chuan wealth ship can generate new opportunities for the occupants and create results in financial investments, academic achievements and also enhance romance and relationships. As with every year, we include these as standard in our 2021 Cures and Enhancers kits as they are a vital cure for strengthening the #1 annual star.

If you have any poison arrows such as a busy road or power lines in the south of your home or office, I would suggest placing a Ba Gua mirror outside of the building pointing towards the poison arrow; if you are unsure which mirror to use, a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror is the safest bet to use in the south during 2021.

Another extremely powerful and vital cure to enhance wealth, relationships and career in the south is to place a special wealth ingot. This beautiful hand-painted wealth ingot is a very commanding cure to enhance and protect wealth and business prospects in the year of the Ox. We have included the wealth ingot as standard in our 2021 Deluxe cures and enhancers kits.

If you cannot afford the Huangjin Caifu Chuan wealth ship and special wealth ingot, or if you simply do not wish to use traditional cures in your home or office this year, I would try to introduce some water colours in your home or office; you can do this by using bedding, pillows, lampshades, rugs etc. such as blacks, greys and blues. If you have a bedroom in the south this year and the bed falls into this sector, I would recommend placing a brass Wu Lou talisman here to protect and enhance wealth.

Please do not place any fire colours in the south in 2021 as this will drain the energy of the annual #1 star and could cause a loss of wealth. If you already have fire colours in the south and cannot remove them, we would make sure that you introduce some strong water colours along with metal cures to balance the energies.

If you are using furniture and ornaments in the south, I would try choosing objects with waves and ripples as this represents the water element and will work very well here this year.

Summary for the annual #1 star in the South in 2021:

The best months for the south during 2021 are March, April, May, July, October, December, and January.

Take extra care in February, June, August, October and November. I would check back on our free monthly Flying star advice to further analyse these months.

Enhancement summary and advice for the #1 visiting the South in 2021

  • If you have a bedroom in the south, I would place a brass Wu Lou next to your bed and also introduce a blue, black, grey or charcoal duvet cover, throw or pillows.
  • If you cannot afford to purchase a wu lou, you should place a heavy round object close to your bed; a quick, easy cure is to place a good quality frying pan under your bed for the year.
  • Place a Huangjin Caifu Chuan wealth ship in the south to enhance and protect wealth for the #1 star
  • You should avoid burning candles in the south and please avoid any fire colours like red, pink, purple, orange or burgundy; blues, blacks, grey or charcoal are good colours to use.
  • Place a special wealth ingot.  in the south to enhance and protect the #1 star
  • Metal objects are very effective when placed in the south in 2021.
  • Clicking here will take you to our page of all of our cures and enhancers for the annual #1 star
  • Although they will not be as powerful, you can use round metal shapes as an alternative to using Feng Shui items, but please avoid sharp or menacing looking metal objects.

 

North (2 Black) - Brings Sickness and Illness.

Kun 2 Black, the Kun 2 Black (Ju Men) visits the North in 2021.

The North is not a great area in 2021 and can bring financial and illness problems to all occupants of the home or office, especially the middle son and males in general and will need some extremely powerful cures.

If your home or office has a front door in the North in 2021, it is very important that you do not slam the door and if possible, I would suggest that you install a soft close hinge, as loud noises can activate the maleficent effects of the #2 star. You must also aim to avoid any internal doors or windows being slammed in this area and avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs. If you have no option but to undergo heavy work this year, please make sure that you follow the advice below and also have the relevant cures in place and try to do so when an auspicious monthly flying star flies into the North.

One of the most important cures that you can place in your home or office is to place a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and a salt water cure, and these are standard in our annual cures and enhancers kits.

The ideal area for the North to fall into in your home or office in 2021 would be in a bathroom, spare room or storage space as these rooms are used less than a bedroom or kitchen and would be less likely to activate from noise. If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the North, this will inevitably trigger its negative effects.

The #2 star will affect the health of those under its influence and can bring problems relating to wealth, illness, disease, stress, backstabbing and overall lousy luck so please take this advice seriously and do not leave the North untreated and see what happens this year. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3, 4 or 9. Check on this page if you do not know your Gua number or if you have our Academy of Feng Shui software you can calculate your Gua and best directions.

Please do not introduce any red colours in the North during the year of the Ox, avoid using candles in this area as this will aggravate the malevolent effects of the annual #2 star. If you have any red colours in the north that cannot be removed this year, such as a red sofa, do not worry too much and be sure to introduce some strong metal colours and cures such as a silver or white throw over the sofa. Good metal colours to use in the south this year are white, silver, gold, bronze or copper.

The #2 star will affect the health of those under its influence and can bring problems relating to wealth, illness, disease, stress, back stabbing and overall bad luck so please take this advice seriously and do not leave the south untreated and see what happens this year. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3, 4 or 9. Check on this page if you do not know your Gua number or if you have our Academy of Feng Shui software you can calculate your Gua and best directions.

Another powerful cure for the south in 2020 is to place a statue of Tsai Shen Yeh in a gold colour. The God of wealth statue is very good at weakening the bad earth and also protects wealth for 2020, making this a very powerful cure.

Please do not introduce any red colours in the south during the year of the Rat and at all costs, avoid using candles in this area as this will aggravate the malevolent effects of the annual #2 star. If you have any red colours in the south that cannot be removed this year, such as a red sofa, do not worry too much and be sure to introduce some strong metal colours and cures such as a silver or white throw over the sofa. Good metal colours to use in the south this year are white, silver, gold, bronze or copper.

Placing a Metal Wu Lou beside your bed is a good cure if you have no option but to sleep in the north of your home this year as this symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star.

The best treatment for the north of your home or office during 2021 is to place a salt water cure and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon. I would also recommend introducing some metal cures in the North as of 3rd  February 2021 such as a metal Wu Lou, singing bowl or other good quality metal objects. However, please make sure that they are smooth in shape and do not use any menacing or pointy objects as this will be counterproductive.

The best cure for the North in 2021 is an avoidance of the area altogether which is near impossible to do, but if you are fortunate enough to be able to avoid 1/9th of your home, I would still recommend placing the cures for 2021.

Now having given you all this bad news, I will now give some hope for those who are Gua 2, 6, 7 or 8 as while this combination, on the whole, is very bad, it can be good for them in wealth and career, you would still be wise 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.

Summary for the annual #2 star in the North in 2021:

Please be sure to keep the North of your home or office as quiet as possible during 2021. If you have no choice but to carry out noisy building work, please make sure you have the recommended cures in place and try to use manual tools to keep noise to a minimum.

Do not place any fire colours in the North in 2021 such as red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed when possible. Place a Wu Lou, salt water cure, wealth ingot and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours white, silver, gold or copper.

Better months are February, April, May, June and November 2021.

Take extra care in March, July, September, October and December.

Remedies and advice for the #2 visiting the North in 2021

  • Place a salt water cure in the North during 2021
  • If you do not wish to use traditional Feng Shui cures, you can use any metal ornament as long as it is not sharp or aggressive looking. Although not as effective, believe it or not, a good cure is a round metal dog bowl or weight lifters weights.
  • Hang six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon.
  • A good quality brass wealth ingot is good for protecting wealth in the North this year.
  • A metal singing bowl is very good to place in your home or office.
  • Please keep this area as quiet as possible during 2021.
  • Place a Wu Lou and other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.
  • Avoid using red colour in this room and refrain from displaying a triangle shape or fiery pictures.
  • Avoid candles or bright lights at all costs. Check or upgrade smoke alarms and other fire prevention methods.

 

South West (3 Jade) - Brings Hostility and Lawsuits

Chen 3 Jade, the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the South West in 2021. 

From the 3rd of February 2021, the annual #3 star will fly into every home, office, and building around the world and the inherent water energy of the southwest will be conflicting with the inauspicious earth star and also with the annual affliction of Sui Po; we will need to treat the southwest carefully during the year of the Ox in order to avoid theft, a loss of wealth, arguments, disputes, legal issues and stress.

If you have a bedroom or office in the southwest, it is very important that you follow the advice below as human interaction can activate the #3 stars influence; this is very important for the eldest female (Matriarch) of the household and all females in general. Please do not panic if you will be spending a lot of time in the southwest throughout the year as this area can be treated with the relevant cures and enhancers for 2021 to avoid issues that the #3 star can bring.

The southwest is particularly afflicted in 2021 as we have Sui Po fall into the area, making this a hazardous place that will require treating along with peace. To Weaken the annual #3 star and also appease Sui Po in 2021, I would recommend placing a pair of Bi You Pi Yao statues in the southwest of your home or office from the 3rd of February 2021.

If the southwest of your home or office has a front door, please make sure that the door is never slammed as this will likely activate the nasty effects of Sui Po. I would also recommend taking care of internal doors and windows in the southwest this year and avoid excessive noise both inside and out.

It is also wise to avoid digging and renovation in the southwest of your home or office during the year of the Ox as this will anger Sui Po and cause problems. If you cannot avoid carrying out repairs during 2021, please make sure you follow the advice below and try to carry out the work during February, May, June, July, September, or November as this is when we will have a visiting auspicious monthly star that will lessen the negative influence present in the North.

The worst thing you could do in the southwest from the 3rd  February 2021 to the 3rd February 2022 would be to take on any groundbreaking work such as replace window or door frames, knock through an internal wall, build an extension, lay a patio or other similar work. My general rule of thumb for small jobs such as hammering a nail to hang a picture or drill a hole is to minimise as much noise as you can; if you can use a manual hand drill, it is better to be safe than sorry.

To remedy the effects of the annual #3 star flying into the southwest in 2021, I would recommend introducing red decorations and colours into the southwest for the year. Some easy ways to introduce these colours are a red floor mat, cushions or sofa throw. You can also introduce candles, lamps and lights into the southwest for the year to weaken the bad wood star.

You should not place any metal into the southwest in 2021 to control this energy as this will aggravate the annual #3 star; metal colours are ok to use but please do not use too much.

Water features should not be used in the southwest in 2021 unless you have a good understanding of the fixed flying stars of your property as this can bring arguments, wealth issues, divorce and legal problems into your life; unless you take your land formations, period, mountain and water stars into account, please be very careful.

You may have read in some books or on websites where they say that the #3 wood star can be a good one in period 8 (2004-2024), but in my opinion, it is an extremely unpredictable star, and you should not try to activate it unless you know what you are doing with regards to the flying stars or the Academy of Feng Shui software has advised you to do so.

Please be sure to read through all paperwork during 2021, and double-check before signing anything as the annual #3 star can bring lawsuits, disagreements and general issues with others. Please remember to take care as a lack of attention could end in a loss of time, energy and resources.

If you have a main door in the southwest of your home or office during 2021, we would recommend using another door to enter and leave the house if you can; most of us won’t have this luxury, and if you have no choice but to use the door, please make sure you do not slam it shut. We would also recommend hanging a bagua wealth protection mirror above your front door in the southwest for 2021 for added protection.

Remedies and advice for the #3 visiting the Southwest in 2021

  • Place a light in the southwest of your home or office. If you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better. Try to leave it on whenever you are using the room.
  • Place a pair of Bi You Pi Yao statues in the southwest of your home or office.
  • Do not place wind chimes of any material in the southwest as this will make matters worse.
  • Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2021 and check smoke alarms regularly.
  • Check through everything before signing documents, especially if your office is in the southwest.
  • Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well.
  • You should avoid having a water feature in the southwest unless you have a good understanding of your fixed flying stars.
  • Introduce some fire colours into the southwest to weaken the #3 wood star.

 

East (4 Green) - Brings Love and Scholastic Luck

Sun 4 Green Wen Qu, literacy and romance star gracefully flies into the East in 2021.

The Sun 4 wood star flies into the east as of 3rd  February 2021 and can bring a lovely influence to your home or office when activated correctly. The #4 is a conditional star, and in period 8 (2004 – 2024), it is an auspicious star. The #4 star governs love, relationships, career, travel, creativity, academic, and self-development prospects, making this a very powerful area to enhance in 2021.

Although the #4 star is relationship star, please do not think that this cannot be useful in the workplace; when activated correctly, the east can bring fantastic career prospects and boost productivity in the workplace.

To enhance this beautiful influence, you should place a Ru Yuan Yi Cheng Wealth and wish enhancer in the east of your home or office during 2021. The Wish and romance enhancer is a very powerful Peach Blossom talisman and is a very effective manifestation enhancer for the east during 2021. This is needed more than ever this year as we also have the three killings visit the east so please make sure you place the annual cures and enhancers.

This cure and enhancer when used, is also a manifestation enhancer; You can also place photos of you and your partner or even pictures of people you would like to bring into your life. Think of this area as a manifestation area and when you place your wish list, photos, romantic statue, photo of dream car, house, boyfriend, girlfriend or whatever you wish to bring into your life, think very positive thoughts and try and imagine those items in your life already, remember the power of the mind is just as powerful as Feng Shui. This cure and enhancer are so important in 2021, which is why we included it in all of our 2021 cures and enhancers kit.

One thing to be aware of with the east in 2021 is that although the #4 star is a very auspicious one if you were to leave this area untreated, this can bring unwanted romantic opportunities into your home or office and will affect all occupants. If you are looking to attract a partner in 2021, the safest and most effective way to do this is to place a Ru Yuan Yi Cheng Wealth and wish enhancer.

If you have the main door to your home or office in the east in 2021, this is very good and can bring new opportunities and lost chances of travel. A main door in the east will need to be kept clean throughout the year, and you should not have any shoes on display; a shoebox can be a very powerful cure in the east as it will allow fresh Qi to enter the building.

Please do not place any fire or metal elements or colours in the east such as red, orange, purple, burgundy, lilac, pink, white, silver, gold, bronze or copper as these will destroy the auspicious influence that the annual #4 can bring this year. If you already have fire or metal colours in the east and cannot remove them, please read below.

The best colours to introduce in the east are water colours such as black, charcoal, grey and shades of blue as this will enhance the energy of the annual #4 star. The easiest way to introduce these colours is by using throws, pillows, dishcloths, bedsheets etc.

The east of your home or office should be treated as your creativity and relationship area during 2021 as this can greatly benefit all occupants of the home and office. If you have an office or bedroom in the east, please keep this area clean and clutter-free as often as possible as a tidy area can greatly enhance the #4 star.

The #4 star has the power to increase the chances of producing intelligent children when conceived during the year of the Ox and to increase your chances, I would place a statue of a blue Kwan Yin in the east of your home or office, especially if you have a bed located here.

Another powerful cure that you can place to help you conceive a child during 2021 is a bunch of peanuts in shells (monkey nuts or groundnuts) or any seed products such as 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’.

When placing them, they can be placed anywhere in the bedroom, although I would keep them close to the bedside table. A good alternative if you do not want to display real nuts or if you have an allergy would be to a pair of mandarin ducks beside your bed.

Summary for the annual #4 star in the East in 2021:

With the Ru Yuan Yi Cheng Wealth and wish enhancer in place and some good water colours in the east of your home or office this year, you should be able to enjoy great rewards and enhance your relationship with others throughout the year of the Ox.

In 2021, the east of your home or office is a great area for students, writers, artists or anyone with interest in travel, crystals or the health industry and they would be wise to make the most out of this auspicious influence.

When using colours in the east this year, please avoid using fire colours such as red, pink and purple and please try to avoid lighting candles in the east as this will weaken the good influence.

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. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. You should try to avoid using metal items here, especially wind chimes. You should try to spend time in the east this year if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.

recommendations and cures for the #4 visiting the East in 2021

  • Use blue in your décor in the east of your home or office.
  • Place a Ru Yuan Yi Cheng Wealth and wish enhancer in the east of your home or office
  • If you have an office and study in the east, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desk. Blue items can be added on the desk, e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
  • Avoid displaying too many metal objects in the east; especially large heavy ornaments such as dumbbells
  • 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.
  • If you have the Taohua mandarin Ducks, this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
  • Place a Kwan Yin statue in the east, but please keep it higher than ground level
  • Place photos of loved ones or images of love to enhance relationships or attract new love. This can do with photos, paintings or statues, make sure there is always a pair in the image.

 

South East (5 Yellow) - Brings Misfortune and Bad Luck

The 5 Yellow, In 2021, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy returns home to the South East place in 2021.

In 2021, the southeast of every building around the world will be affected by the vicious effects of the annual #5 earth star. If left untreated can cause problems to all occupants ranging from a major illness, accidents, fatalities or bankruptcy so please make sure you treat the southeast with the appropriate cures. The southeast is going to need some good quality metal cures this year and will need to be kept calm and quiet to avoid activating this inauspicious star.

Although the southeast will be a very afflicted area during 2021, please do not feel that there is no solution to this; with Feng Shui, there is always a way to manage or dissipate an inauspicious star, and if you place the relevant cures and keep the area calm and settled, you can avoid activating this area  and avoid any problems that the annual #5 star can bring.

In 2021, year of the Yin Metal Ox Xin Chou, Tsai Shen Yeh is one of the most essential annual Feng Shui cures and enhancers to place in the southeast to protect your wealth and good luck. In 2021 and you must only use a gold coloured Tsai She Yeh and not be tempted to use a red one.

Most of Indian's have kitchen is in the southeast of their home, and like most homes, this is the central hub with visitors sitting around and chatting at the kitchen table, and they will generally spend a lot of time in there so for 2021, they will be taking the following steps to ensure they can still use this area and avoid problems –

  • Place a Salt water cure on the kitchen worktop.
  • Last year I gave them some weightlifting plates to place under the kickboards for the east and they will be moved after cleansing to the southeast of their kitchen.
  • They will be hanging Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row in the southeast to weaken the #5 star
  • Place a Tsai Shen Yeh wealth God on the kitchen worktop
  • They will be avoiding orange, purple, lilac, pink, burgundy and red decorations and tea towels in the southeast as this would feed the bad earth star and cause problems
  • They will be hanging a Six rod hollow metal wind chime in the southeast for 2021

If the southeast of your home or office falls into a bedroom, office or other important room such as a living room, it is very important that this area is treated similarly to the steps above as human interaction will make this area very more likely to be activated. If you have a main door in the southeast, please make sure that you follow the advice for this year and ensure that the door is not slammed shut as this will activate the harmful effects of the annual #5. Peace, along with strong metal cures, will help avoid the effects of this star.

If you can, avoid any renovation or groundbreaking; this includes building an extension, knocking through an internal wall, laying a patio, replacing a bathroom suite and all other similar activities. If you have no choice but to carry out work this year, please try to do this when we have a promising monthly star fly into the southeast which would be in May, July, September and December 2021.

My general rule of thumb when carrying out small tasks in a minor area such as hammering a nail to hang a picture or drill a hole is to minimise as much noise as you can; if you can use a manual hand drill, it is better to be safe than sorry.

For 2021, we would strongly suggest placing these Cures in the southeast of your home or office:

Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row

Tsai Shen Yeh wealth God

Salt water cure

Six rod hollow metal wind chime

If you would prefer not to use traditional Feng Shui cures in 2021, please do not worry as there is still a lot of ways to weaken the negative influence of the annual #5 star this year. We would recommend some good quality, heavy metal into the southeast of your home or office such as a stainless-steel dog bowl and weight lifting plates.

Good shapes are items made from metal that are round. Please make sure that you don’t disturb the southeast with any 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 in the southeast.

A pendulum chiming clock in the southeast is a very effective cure this year, and while this contradicts what I said about keeping the area quiet, the chiming sound of the clock is as important as the moving metal of the pendulum. In the old days, they would have had someone striking a gong quietly every 15 to 60 minutes.

Another powerful cure for the southeast is to place a brass Wu Lou or gold coloured gourd to protect wealth and avoid legal problems, arguments, disputes and loss of wealth.

Whatever you do, please do not place any red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in the southeast of your home or office from 3rd  February 2021 to 3rd February 2022 as this will only cause harm and aggravate the #5 yellow.

Do not worry if you have these colours already and cannot remove them, introduce some metal colours into the southeast such as white, silver, gold or copper 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 your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard is located here, this is good for you this year, because these areas are not used much, and therefore the negative power is not activated, we would still place the cures though regardless of what room is located in the southeast.

Summary for the annual #5 star in the Southeast in 2021:

Take extra care in March, April, June, October, and December.

Please avoid activating the negative energy brought on by the annual #5 star with loud noises or groundbreaking in the southeast.

Avoid placing fire colours in the southeast of your home or office such as orange, red or purple. Introduce metal colours such as white, silver, gold or copper.

Although we have mentioned it quite a lot in the advice above, please try to keep the southeast as quiet as possible this year and make sure that you have your annual cures and enhancers on 3rd  February 2021; if you miss this date, you can place them at any time in the year of the Ox.

recommendations and cures for the #5 visiting the Southeast in 2021

  • Avoid playing loud music in the southeast of the home or room.
  • Keep doors closed in the southeast this year as much as possible
  • Do not decorate the southeast with any red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use.
  • Place a salt water cure in the southwest of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
  • The six coins in row and salt cure are a crucial cure to place in 2021; please do not forget it.
  • Place a Tsai Shen Yeh wealth God in the southeast
  • Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the southeast corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
  • Metal objects such as six Chinese metal coins tied in a red ribbon and a brass Dragon can be placed in this corner too. Do not to use red dragons.
  • Do not burn candles in the southeast and please avoid any triangular shapes
  • Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth.
  • Replace or at the very least cleanse your Ba Gua mirror if you have one in the southeast especially if you have a door here.
  • If you have a main door in the southeast in 2021, make sure that you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut and oil squeaky hinges.

 

Centre (6 White) - Brings Good Fortune

Ch’ien 6 White, The star of Heaven Chien 6 White (Wu Qu) sits in the Central place in 2021.

In 2021, we have the annual #6 money star fly into the centre of the lou shu. The #6 star is a compassionate star and when activated with the relevant cures and enhancers, can bring financial and career luck during the year of the Ox although it is trapped in the centre and special cures are needed. If you have a job in politics, a leadership role, jewellery or a manager’s position, this area is very important to you this year, and you should follow the advice below carefully.

The centre will usually fall into a hallway and landing, depending on the size of the building although if the centre of your home or office falls into an area with a  main door or window, it is vital that the locks and overall security are checked throughout the year; it is also wise to double check smoke alarms throughout the year to ensure they are working correctly and avoid candles and naked flames here.

One of the most powerful and important cures for 2021 is to place a Da Zhan Hong Tu Sheng Chi cure in the centre of your home or office to enhance and protect wealth luck. This traditional and powerful cure works similarly to Chinese New Year couplets in the sense that they should be kept up for the year to cure and enhance the auspicious influence of the centre in 2021.

The Centre palace has no Trigram or gender and the visiting #6 metal star will drain the earth-based centre which can lead to a loss of wealth and lead to bad luck. To balance the energies for the year, we need to introduce some powerful earth cures into the centre to balance this energy and allow the annual star to be activated which is why we have included the Sheng Chi cure with all our 2021 annual or deluxe cures and enhancers kits.

Although an auspicious star that can bring success and accomplishment, the annual #6 star can cause problems with the liver and legs if located in a bedroom in 2021; the cure for this would be to introduce some water colours such as bed sheets or curtains for the year. Good water colours to use are shades of blue, black, grey, and charcoal.

Summary for the annual #6 star in the Centre in 2021:

Good colours to use in the centre this year are earth colours such as yellow, beige or brown. If you like to work with crystals, you could place some real quartz or a faceted crystal sphere in the centre this year as these are very good for activating the wealth and business side of this nice star.

Recommendations and cures for the #6 visiting the Centre in 2021

  • 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.
  • Hang a Da Zhan Hong Tu Sheng Chi cure in the southeast of your home or office this year to enhance and protect wealth.
  • Real quartz crystal is very good in the centre as are faceted crystal spheres.
  • Avoid fire colours such as red and please do not light candles in the centre in 2021 unless the monthly stars allow so as it can cause lung issues.

 

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

Tui 7 Red, The Lofty breeze of Tui (Po Jun) flies home to the North West in 2021.

As of 3rd  February 2021, the annual #7 robbery star will fly into the northwest of every home, office, and building all across the world, and if left alone without the appropriate cures and enhancers, this star has the risk of causing arguments, burglary risks, deception, copyright theft, backstabbing and overall bad luck this year especially for the eldest male (Patriarch).

The most powerful cure for the northwest of your home or office in 2021 is to hang a Bian Fu zhuang suo fu zhou amulet, which is used to dissipate negative energy of the #7 robbery star in the northwest of every building in the world, which is why we have carefully selected this for our 2021 Cures and Enhancers kits.

The northwest of your home or office can cause a lot of problems to all occupants as we have the annual #7 argument star enter the here and we will have double the metal energy from the inherent energy of the #6 star in the northwest; the annual #7 stars energy will be naturally enhanced by this and we will need to introduce some water colours to weaken this.

If you have a  main door in the northwest, it is important that you hang a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror outside for added protection and make sure that you do not slam the door and oil the hinges regularly.

We have already mentioned double-checking the security in your home or office but please do not take this advice lightly as the influence of the annual #7 star can increase the risk of robbery and deception. I always say that prevention is the best cure and by checking over your home throughout the year, along with placing the Bian Fu zhuang suo fu zhou amulet, you can avoid any potential problems that could incur from the #7 star this year. Do not display any valuable items on windowsills as there is a risk of a passer-by seeing a quick opportunity.

It pays to be wise and avoid taking too many risks if you have an essential room in the northwest this year as there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses.

The best advice we can give is to check your smoke alarms regularly, and if you do not have any, especially in the northwest, please ensure you install them before 3rd  February 2021. Please make sure that you also check electrics and check the security of windows and doors.

Please take extra care during March, May, June, October, and December as this will bring an increased chance of robbery and arguments.

Summary for the annual #7 star in the Northwest in 2021:

Please make sure that you keep the northwest of your home of office as quiet as possible in 2021 and ensure that you check your smoke alarms at regular intervals this year. Good colour options for the northwest are water colours such as shades of blue, black, or grey and be sure to avoid earth colour and crystals this year.

If you have an office or door in the northwest, please 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.

Recommendations and cures for the #7 visiting the Northwest in 2021:

  • You should try to introduce some water colours such as blue in your decoration. You can introduce the colour with cushions, rugs, bed covers or doormats.
  • Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it.
  • Avoid candles at all costs in the northwest during 2021
  • Place a Bian Fu zhuang suo fu zhou amulet in the northwest of your home or office in 2021 for protection
  • Install or service/upgrade smoke alarms and security systems.
  • Do not hang metal wind chimes here.

 

West (8 White) - Brings Wealth Luck and Prosperity

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

The #8 Ken white star is the most promising governing Flying Star for the next three years while we are in period 8 (2004-2024). We have the annual #8 Zuo Fu wealth and overall luck star fly into the west of every home, office, business and building across the world. If left untreated, the inherent energy of the west will weaken the influence of the primary wealth star for the year, causing financial and legal issues for the year ahead.

If you have activated the west of your home or office for 2021 and have a main door, office, bedroom or any other important room that is used frequently in the west this year, this is great news for you and you should make the most of this lovely influence.

As with every new Solar year in Feng Shui, you must place a very special Master cure and the most powerful and important cure, and enhancer in 2021 is called a Wu Wang Bu Li Master cure and must only be placed in a Yin Metal Ox (Xin Chou) year. As with every other year, we have included the Wu Wang Bu Li Master cure master cure standard in all of our 2021 Cures and Enhancers kits.

This master cure and enhancer must be placed to enhance and protect wealth and overall luck in 2021 and is especially needed for all females of the home, especially the youngest  female although this will have a very strong effect on all occupants, including males of a home, office or business when placed in the west.

If you have an office, study or main door in the west of your home or office in 2021, wealth, fame, prestige, romance and distinction can be expected when activated throughout the year with the relevant cures and enhancers.

Another essential cure and enhancer for the annual #8 star is to place a Lung Feng Fu Dragon & Phoenix to enhance the annual #8 wealth star in 2021 and ensure wealth and career are protected and enhanced throughout the year of the Ox.

We had the master cure and Lung Feng Fu Dragon, and Phoenix created especially for us to make this cure as powerful as it can be for the home and office in 2021. The annual #8 earth star has flown into the west, which has an inauspicious inherent #7 star (metal energy), which can weaken wealth and luck between these two stars and the reason why we selected the Lung Feng Fu Dragon and Phoenix and had it hand-painted to create a Sheng cycle to control the energy in the west and ensure that each element is enhancing the next, this is a very traditional cure and enhancer for this combination and very important to place in 2021.

Whilst wealth is forecast in 2021 for the west; it is important that you are careful not to overwork too much this year as this can bring health problems. The additional work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular, stress-related resulting in high blood pressure or kidney problems.

Do not place heavy metal in the west this year, as it will weaken the good earth and stop the #8 star from being activated.

This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area for 2021 when activated, so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc. in the northwest. If you use symbolic cures, this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth or a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.

Recommendations and cures for the #8 visiting the West in 2021

  • Place a Lung Feng Fu Dragon & Phoenix in the west of your home or office
  • Keep the west of your home or office clean and tidy throughout the year and make sure it is free of clutter during the year
  • Place a Wu Wang Bu Li Master cure for wealth protection in the west
  • Do not use red colours, fires or candles in the west this year.
  • This is also a good study area for children, place a task light and a crystal globe on the desk to enhance concentration.
  • A romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz Mandarin Ducks in the west this year.

 

North East(9 Purple) - Brings Future Prosperity

Li 9 Purple,  Li 9 Purple is found in the North East palace in 2021.

The annual #9 purple (You Bi) star has flown into the northeast from 3rd February 2021, and the inherent earth energy of the northeast will be weakening the auspicious influence of the auspicious visiting star although it is marred this year with Tai sui Grand Duke also visiting the northeast and special cures are needed. We will need to introduce elements to enhance the annual star in 2021 to make sure that future wealth is protected and enhanced this year.

The #9 star is a very important future wealth star, and we are only three years away from period 9, and this star will become the commanding wealth star very soon and needs special cures and enhancers to make the most from it, and this year the main priority is enhancing and protecting wealth.

As we have Tai Sui in the northeast, we must introduce Yang Xin, the Tai Sui general for 2021, he will be sat in this area of every home, office, building, business and shop for the whole year up until 3rd February 2022. When we disturb Tai Sui, we can manifest all types of problems from disagreements, lawsuits, divorce and many other malicious influences which is why it is vital that we pay respect to Yang Xin for the year and appease him by placing a gold-plated plaque in the northeast sat on a crystal base, symbolising stature and respect and this MUST be placed in the northeast in 2021..

There are sixty different Tai Sui generals, and during the year of the Yin Metal Ox, we must place a gold-plated plaque of Yang Xin as he is the ruling Tai Sui general for 2021. The animals that will be especially affected by Yang Xin this year are the Ox, Goat, Horse, Dog and Dragon as they are all in conflict with Tai Sui in different ways and have more chance of disturbing Tai Sui this year. However, this is equally important for the rest of the Chinese animals.

The #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 northeast in 2021. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.

This is a good area, in general, this year and especially for those who are involved in studies in 2021. 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 northeast part of your bedroom.

To enhance the auspicious #9 star in the northeast you need a San Bao trinity enhancer and protector for wealth with three auspicious Chinese i-ching coins tied together with a red ribbon to form a triangle which is the strongest of all the geometric shapes, The three i-ching coins represent a trinity of prosperity enhancement (San He) and the top is tied with a lucky knot and combined with double tassels at the bottom to make this a very commanding cure and enhancer this year and must be placed in the northeast of your home or office/study.

Summary for the annual #9 star in the Northeast in 2021:

Be aware of the negative influences during March, May, July, August and October.

Recommendations and cures for the #9 visiting the Northeast in 2021

  • Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.
  • Place a Yang Xin Tai Sui plaque talisman in the northeast of your home and office
  • Place a San Bao trinity enhancer in the northeast of your home and office
  • Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.
  • Symbolic objects such as a wu lou or eight 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.

Spend as much time as you can reading this report, save it and print it to read at your leisure as it can save you from a lot of problems. You don’t have to buy any cures and enhancers, and we hope you agree we have always given you alternatives to the traditional cures and enhancers.

Avoiding bad luck in 2021

Looking at the chart above, you will see that we have the #3 San Bi three Jade star enter the southwest of the lo shu in 2021 and this is combined with Sui Po, and we are going to need special cures and enhancers in the south to weaken the malevolent influence of this star.

The North and southeast are also severely afflicted, and at the very least, I would hang a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and also place a salt water cure in the southeast and North to control and weaken the annual #2 and #5 stars.

The Three Killings – East (52.5 – 127.5)

You must avoid making any form of deafening renovations or re-decorative work in the east part of your home or office between the 3rd of February 2021 and 3rd of February 2022. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes (small holes for plants is fine), build foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any loud equipment in the areas inside or outside your property or garden.

If you have no option but to perform work in the east in 2021, I would strongly recommend that you place a six hollow rod metal wind chime while the work is being carried out and for a few days after. We take this very seriously at the Feng Shui Store as we’ve seen some pretty nasty events over the past 40 years when this energy has been disturbed.

There are also another two other rules that you should follow regarding the Three Killings in 2021. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back towards the east, it is better to face east instead.

If you have a door in the east in 2021, please take a lot of care when opening and closing the door to make sure it is not slammed. Avoid the influence of the Three Killings by opening and shutting the door calmly or install a soft close hinge.

A traditional and powerful Feng Shui cure for the Three Killings during 2021 would be to Ru Yuan Yi Chang wish and romance enhancer in the east from the 3rd February 2021 to the 3rd February 2022.

Urgent repairs to your home or office in the east during 2021 will need a cure to prevent any negative consequences. You can place a six-rod hollow metal rod wind chime between the building and where the work is being carried out or ideally, contact a professional Feng Shui Consultant to select an auspicious date to start the work.

Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) – Northeast (22.5 – 37.5)

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.

If you have a front door located in the northeast during the year of the Ox, please try to take care when coming through the door to avoid slamming the door as this is a sure way to anger Tai Sui. If you have an important room in the northeast, please try to keep this area calm and quiet in 2021 and avoid digging or renovating in the northeast this year; using hand tools should be fine as long as you are careful and keep noise levels low. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Yang Xin Tai Sui plaque to pay respect and appease the Deity and also enhance the annual #9 star.

By paying respect to Grand Duke of Jupiter, we can weaken or avoid the problems this can bring.

Sui Po (Year Breaker) – Southwest (202.5 º -217.5 º)

Sui Po is the year breaker, and it occupies the compass sector directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2021 will be in the southwest which also houses the annual 3 robbery star. The location that Sui Po is located in for the year should be treated the same way as any other annual affliction so please avoid too much noise in the southwest this year and avoid groundbreaking and renovation. When Sui Po is disturbed, this area can and usually will cause immediate health problems, especially with regards to the elderly, so please be very careful with the southwest of your home or office this year.

Traditionally to appease this very nasty energy, you should introduce some fire colours along with a pair of Bi You Pi Yao statues in the southwest, facing towards the northeast.

Annual #5 yellow Flying star – Southeast (112.5 – 157.5)

As of the 3rd of February 2021, we have the annual five yellow star fly into the southeast of every home, office and building for the year. When activated with noise or regular traffic, this inauspicious influence can bring disaster, illness, lawsuits and significant financial issues, making this a crucial area to treat carefully during the year of the Ox.

It is highly recommended that you keep the southeast calm and settled as often as possible during 2021 in order to avoid activating this area and avoid any building work or noisy activities. To control and weaken the influence of the annual five star, 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 southeast to avoid the problems that are associated with the #5 yellow disaster star.

A powerful and vital cure to place in the southeast of your home or office during 2021 is to place a gold-coloured statue of a Tsai Shen Yeh in the southeast of your building to weaken and appease the annual #5 yellow star which is why we have included the Tsai Shen Yeh in all of our Annual cures and enhancers kits this year.

Please do not panic if the southeast, east, southwest or northeast of your home or workplace has a bedroom, office, living room or other regularly used room in one of these areas; just start preparing to place your 2021 cures and enhancers kit as of the 3rd February 2021 to ensure a trouble-free year and also cleanse any old cures that you will be reusing this year.

Water placement in 2021:

As we entered period 8 (4th February 2004), the use of water outside is critical up until 2024, a pond/water feature positioned outside in the correct area can work in your favour although you should not site a pond/water feature unless advised by professional Feng Shui consultant, you can, however, safely place water outside in the southwest up until 2024.

Outside water placement in 2021:

During the year of the Ox, outside water can be placed in the southwest or east (only if you have been advised by a Feng Shui master as the annual #3 resides in the southwest in 2021) as these are your primary wealth areas for the next three years while we are in period 8. In 2021, outside water is best placed in the west but please note that you should only use outside water if you know the natal chart of your home and have a good understanding of the land formations of your home.

Indoor water placement for 2021:

If you have to use indoor water in 2021, the best area is in the west as this will help to activate the auspicious #8 star for the year of the Ox. 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 or use our software.

If you decide that you want to use water inside your home, please make sure that the water is kept clean and fresh at all times and make sure that the water is continuously flowing as stagnant water will cause the Qi to become trapped in the home and bring negative energy into the home or office. Using water in Feng Shui is a very powerful tool and is a vital part of Feng Shui (Shui meaning water). The Qi around the home or office is caught by the water and is then cleansed and distributed around the building provided the water is clean and flowing. If you look at our resource pages, you will find more detailed information on water placement for 2021 and beyond.

Whilst the use of water is considered safe in the right conditions, 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 after just 4 weeks.

You should place a Salt Water Cure in the southeast and North of your home and office from the 3rd  February 2021 to weaken and control the annual #2 and #5. Please do not try to reuse the coins from last year’s cure or coins from other cures as they should be replaced when setting up a new cure.

When we are working with the flying stars, there will be many different circumstances to how the stars will affect each building; for example, If you have an annual #5 in your open plan living room during 2021, the energy from the #5 yellow’s presence can flow into another area of the home or office so it is always best to treat the hostile areas rather than take an out of sight, out of mind approach; having the annual #5 in a broom cupboard or lesser used room is very good as the chances of activating this star are a lot less likely although it is still vital to treat. Try to think of the annual stars such as the #5 as a perfume; if you sprayed some fragrance in your bedroom, you would probably be able to smell it downstairs as the smell drifts around the building. If possible, it is always preferable to avoid rooms with negative stars, although I would still recommend placing the necessary Cures and Enhancers for 2021.

I need to get rid of my old salt water cure; what should I do?

When replacing your salt water cure, I would recommend replacing it at the end of the year at the very least, or if the salt cure grows too large, I would replace it when the salt formation spills over the sides. I will usually replace my salt water cure in my own home when the salt starts to form around 5mm over the top of the glass as this is typically a sign that the cure needs replacing and has absorbed enough negative Qi.

Once you replace your salt water cure, you should leave it in place and do not touch it except for topping up with water until you need to replace your cure as disturbing it could unsettle the negative qi that the cure has absorbed. When you come to remove your Salt Water Cure, you should carefully place the whole thing (salt, water, glass and coins) into a Tupperware type container or water tight plastic bag inside a cardboard box and dispose of it in a recycling bin straight away. If you do not have a Tupperware tub to dispose of the salt water cure, you can carefully pour the water down an outside drain although I do not like to recommend this and this is more of a last option scenario.

We have had people say to us that they have still got the same salt water cure from 5 years ago, which is extremely dangerous and not worth the risk. Please replace your salt water cure every Chinese New Year at the very least. We try to keep our salt water cures as cheap as possible so that they are available to the majority and all of the coins we use come from a good dynasty, making them even more effective.

Annual Flying Star analysis for 2021, Year of the Yin Metal Ox (Xin Chou)

When reading the annual analysis for the 2021 Flying stars, please bear in mind that the advice we give can only be taken from a general point of view as to how the stars will affect the different compass sectors. When implementing the cures and enhancers for your home, please go around the different areas and consider items and colours you are already using as these could affect the stars for the year. It is also wise to consider the combination of the ‘facing’ and ‘sitting’ stars of the property’s natal chart and we cannot account for this in the report below.

Please take your time when reading through the analysis below for the annual flying stars for 2021. When you first read the advice below, it may seem as though this year will bring lots of problems although you will soon realise that there are many ways to control the negative influences and enhance the positive ones, making the most out of the year of the Ox.

In 2021, we have the #8 annual star fly into the west of every home, office, and building around the world and this star can bring tremendous wealth luck when activated correctly this year. The #8 star is the primary annual wealth star for the next three years while we are in period eight and will need to be activated with special cures and enhancers this year. To promote new wealth entering your home or business, you should place a lottery ticket in the west this year to enhance your chances of a win.

Annual and Monthly Flying Stars Feng Shui Charts for the Yin Metal Ox Year 2021

Flying Star Feng Shui Charts provide vital information to take note of as it involves the way luck changes from year to year. The annual stars change its positions on a yearly basis while monthly stars shift their sectors every month. The optimal way to update your feng shui is to pay attention to their position changes in order to make the most out of the auspicious stars and suppress the bad energies brought by the malignant stars. Below are the complete charts for the Annual and Monthly Flying Star of the 2021 Yin Metal Ox Year.

The numbers on the left in the 9 grids of the charts below indicate the annual star while the numbers on the right indicate the monthly star. Use a good compass to accurately determine the direction of your home. 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 #1 star brings career luck in promotions and recognition.
  • The #2 star brings illnesses, diseases, ailments and fatal health problems.
  • The #3 star brings quarrels, negative encounters, lawsuits and court case.
  • The #4 star brings literary and love luck.

  • The #7 star brings severe bad luck (violence, burglary and bloodshed).
  • The #8 star brings wealth, prosperity, and lots of money luck.

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.
