We post updates all year round on our Feng Shui blog and Facebook so bookmark them now below and keep checking back…

Each year, during the run up to Chinese New Year, we are all confronted with a long list of boring and challenging tasks and chores to complete throughout the year involving maintenance of the house, office, shop and gardens. For myself, as the year seems to fly past, I need to make sure that I am careful when I am doing upkeep around my home and so should you if you are to try and avoid the fury of Tai Sui (Grand Duke), Sui Po and the Three Killings as this can cause a lot of problems when we disturb the areas where the annual afflictions are located for the year of the Yin Fire Rooster.

Predict Feng Shui Annual AfflictionsEvery year, we receive hundreds of messages from people asking us how they can calculate or foresee these afflicted areas in the upcoming years so that they are able to plan ahead for both minor and major projects in their home and office; especially for renovation. You will find the information for this year below but if you would like to be able to plan ahead and see the Annual afflictions for future years, you may be interested to know that our Feng Shui 2017 software will calculate for every year ahead and many other features too long to list here.

In 2017, the year of the Yin Fire Rooster, if you are doing any work in the south, east and west, you will need to take extra care as this is where the Annual Feng Shui afflictions are located during the year.

Each year, we receive thousands of emails and messages from people asking us how they can calculate or predict these afflicted areas in the forthcoming years so that they are able to plan ahead for both small and big projects in their home and office; this is especially the case for renovations. You will find the information for this year below but if you would like to be able to plan ahead and see the Annual afflictions for future years, you may be interested to know that our Feng Shui 2017 software will calculate for every year ahead and many other features too long to list here.

 

The Three Killings which is also known as three sha,is an exact translation from the Chinese ‘San Sha’. Although the perception of The Three Killings is associated with three earthly branches, its position is defined according to one of the four cardinal compass directions, namely North (water), East (wood), South (fire) and West (metal).

The twelve earthly branches are put in to four groups of melodious alliances (trinities). If we are to establish the location of The Three Killings, we must explore the trinities of the earthly branches and their phases first.

Please do not get the earthly branches confused as The Three Killings; they simply designate the position of The Three Killings. The Three Killings sits in the opposite cardinal direction (spanning 90 degrees) of the phase represented by the year’s earthly branch.

For example:

The 2004 earthly branch was the Monkey. The Monkey belongs to the trinity of the water phase to the north. As such, The Three Killings sits in the south. I e. 135º to 225º .Another example:

The 2005 earthly branch was the Rooster belonging to the trinity of the metal phase to the west which means that The Three Killings sat in the east during the year 2005.

The four trinities are:

Rat, Monkey and Dragon (Water phase) to the North
Sheep, Rabbit and Boar (Wood phase) to the East
Tiger, Dog and Horse (Fire phase) to the South
Snake, Rooster and Ox (Metal phase) to the West

The most effective cure is to try to avoid disturbing the ground where the Three Killings are located in 2017; which I can hear you say, is easier said than done.You should always take special care wherever the Three Killings is located if the house or office facing position is the same direction as the Three Killings for the year. If the location of the Three Killings is disturbed by noise or building work such as renovation of a section of a home or installing a pond, you may find some unwanted consequences for the residents of the property which could mean poor health, loss of wealth, mishap, injury and, in extreme cases, the occupants could face fatalities so please follow the information below on how to avoid these problems in 2017.

If you have a front door that is regularly used that is positioned in the east in 2017 which is where the Three Killings’ direction is located this year, it is considered a disturbance due to the constant opening and closing of the front door and heavy noise levels throughout the year which could cause the problems that I spoke about above. In my own home in 2017, I have my bathroom and dining room in the east which are two very good rooms to have the three killings located in as they are not used for long periods and are fairly quiet overall.

You should take a lot of care as to not slam the door as the Three Killings can be a lot more settled if the door is opened and shut calmly.the ideal situation would be to enter and leave your home from another door but sadly this is sometimes easier said than done, especially with apartments and mid terraced homes. The traditional cure is to place a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi and Cai yuan Guang Jin Master Cure in the east this year as we also have the #8earth annual star flying in to the east meeting earth and wood (#3) which is why a very special Cure is needed.

So in 2017, if the front door of your home or office is in the south, east or west, you should follow our 2017 annual advice and place a pair of Fu Dogs/Temple Lions by your door and try to avoid using the door if this is possible although I can appreciate that this is easier said than done.

In 2017, my rear door is located in the south and ideally, I would go through the front door and round the side to enter the garden using the back gate although I can honestly say that I will only do this two or three times; as there are only two of us in my home, we will make sure that we do not slam the rear French door and will also be careful when cutting the grass in the south; I will explain more about this below…

Three Killings direction 2017

How can I avoid problems in my garden in 2017?

Garden Feng Shui 2017

The traditional cure when you have to do work if your garden is located in the south, east or west in 2017 is to place a 6 Metal rod wind chime between the property and the place of disturbance. You can if you want to, use any metal object but in order to get the full effect, the ideal cure would be to place a metal wind chime with six hollow metal rods between the home and the area that the work is being carried out as the chimes resonate a sound which helps weaken the ill effects of the afflicted area. Another traditional Cure is to place a symbolic statue of deities and one of the most popular deities is the God of wealth “Tsai Shen Yeh”.Tsai Shen Yeh is one of the most powerful and popular Chinese Gods of Wealth who is normally depicted wearing a dragon robe and sitting on a tiger; he is also known at times as Lu Hsing the Star God of Wealth.

The Tsai Shen Yeh carries a gold ingot and a sword on him. After he returned from a forest after studying the Tao, he was seen riding along on the back of a black tiger in all directions and carrying a sword to ward off evil influences around him. He is not meant to be worshipped but is actually there to symbolise money and wealth and attracts the same into the house.

You should never sit with your back to the Three Killings direction and should always sit facing towards the direction of the Three Killings. During 2017, you should avoid sitting facing the west as the Three Killings are located in the east for the year of the Yin Fire Rooster. Each year, we receive thousands of emails from our customers asking if they need to move the sofa chairs in the living room to avoid sitting with their back to the Three Killings; we always advise that you do not sit with your back to the Three Killings but this doesn’t refer to temporary incidents as much and this is more relevant to prolonged periods of time. Try to avoid sitting with your back to west for no longer than 2 hours per day as this could affect your relationship with work colleagues and can also affect your performance of work. There may also be rumours and back stabbing against you. If it is not possible for you to move your desk so that you are not sitting with your back to the Three Killings direction, your best option is to place a pair of Chi Lin on your desk facing the Three Killings direction.

Tsai Shen YehTai Sui who is also known as Grand Duke of Jupiter is also named the Year Star and its position is signified by the earthly branch (Chinese animal) of the year. The positions of the twelve earthly branches are: Rat (north), Ox and Tiger (northeast), Rabbit (east), Dragon and Snake (southeast), Horse (south), Sheep and Monkey (southwest), Rooster (west) and Dog and Boar (northwest).

Tai Sui or Grand Duke Jupiter is totally unrelated to the planet Jupiter although there are some astrological reasons why it became the benchmark where the Tai Sui therefore it was also called Grand Duke Jupiter.

2004 was the year of the monkey and Tai Sui sat southwest.

2005 was the rooster year and Tai Sui sat in the west (262.5 – 277.5).

2006 was the dog year and Tai Sui sat northwest (292.5 – 307.5)

2007 Tai Sui sat in the northwest (322.5 – 337.5)

2008 was the year of the Rat so Tai Sui sat north (352.5 – 7.5)

2009 was the year of the Ox so Tai Sui Grand Duke sat in the northeast (22.5 – 37.5)

2013 was the year of the Snake so Tai Sui Grand Duke sat in the southeast.

2014 was the year of the Horse so Tai Sui Grand Duke sat in the south.

2015 was the year of the Sheep/Goat so Tai Sui Grand Duke sat in the southwest (202.5 – 217.5 degrees)

2016 is the year of Yang fire Monkey and Grand Duke will sit in the southwest again although sited between 232.5 – 247.5 degrees.

2017 is the year of the Yin Fire Rooster and Grand Duke will sit in the west (262.5 – 277.5)

2018 will be the year of the YangEarthDog and Grand Duke will sit in the northwest (292.5 – 307.5)

Avoid the Three Killings 2017Unlike San Sha Three Killings, it is not advisable to sit facing Tai Sui for prolonged periods of time and instead, you may sit with your back to Tai Sui for support but the ideal solution would be to avoid sitting or facing Tai Sui all together if possible. In 2017, it is even more important that you do not sit facing the west as to do so would mean that you are both facing Tai Sui and also sitting with your back to the Three Killings. If you have a front door or office desk that faces the direction of Tai Sui in 2017 (west), a very important cure and enhancer to place is a Tang JieTai Sui Plaque. I must strongly advise you not to disturb the ground of the location where Tai Sui sits for the year. For the best protection in the year of the Rooster, take a look at the 2017 Cures and Enhancers Kits. If you would like to find out the best seating positions and everything else to do with your Personal Feng Shui, you can take a look at our customised Feng Shui Report

 

The 2017 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:

The Three Killings – East (52.5-127.5)

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

three killings location 2017

Two further rules that you should follow regarding the Three Killings in 2017. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back towards the east, it is better to face that direction instead.

Cure Three Killings 2017

If your front door faces the east in 2017, you should take care as to not slam the door as the Three Killings can be a lot more settled if the door is opened and shut calmly; this also applies to internal doors and definitely the case if the east has a child’s bedroom located here. The traditional cure is to place a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi along with a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure in the east this year. The Huo Zai Dragon can help avoid a lot of problems that can be brought on when the Three Killings visit the east and as we also have Sui Po located here in 2017, it is vital that this area is kept calm and protected with the relevant cures and enhancers. The Huo Zai Dragon really is a beautiful and powerful cure especially as it is one of the most traditional cures in Feng Shui. You can also place a pair of Fu Dogs or a Ba Gua Mirror here also.

If you need to urgently carry out repairs to your home or office in the east during the year of the Yin Fire Rooster, you should place a 6 Metal rod wind chime between the buildings and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Feng Shui Consultant to select an auspicious date to start the work or you can use our Tong Shu software.

Where is Tai Sui located in 2017

Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) – west (262.5º – 277.5º)

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 and in 2017 we also have the visiting Chen 3 Jade (Lu Cun Xing) wood star in the west which can cause problems if not treated correctly.

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

Sui Po (Year Breaker) – east (82.5º – 97.5º)

Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2017 is east and is also the location of the Three Killings for the Yin Wood Rooster year. You should treat this area the same as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities. If disturbed this area can and usually will cause immediate health problems especially with regards to the elderly, so please be very careful. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Rooster year you need to display a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure and Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi which we have included in all of our Annual Cures and Enhancers kit for 2017.

If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the east, place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the buildings and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Feng Shui Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work or consult our Tong Shu date selection software.

The annual five yellow star- south (157.5-202.5)

The annual five yellow star has flown to the south in 2017. With the annual #5 yellow enteringthis location we have the inherent fire energy of the south feeding the visiting energy of the #5 earth star which can amplify all of the problems that the #5 is known to bring such as sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth so it is vital that the south has as much protection as possible. It is highly recommended not to disturb the south of your home or business with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. When disturbed, the Five Yellow can bring disaster, sickness, lawsuit and major loss of wealth so please be very careful as it is very afflicted. You must place a set of Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row , a 6 Metal rod wind chimeand a Salt water cure in the south to avoid the problems that are associated the #5 yellow disaster star in 2017.

Please do not start panicking if you have a bedroom or office that is located in the south, west or east in 2017, just start preparing to place your 2017 cures and enhancers kit as of the 3rd February 2017 to ensure a trouble free year and also cleanse any old cures that you will be reusing this year, and of course make sure you sign up for our free newsletter so you are kept up to date with the monthly flying stars giving you even more control of your destiny. To give you even better control, use our advanced Feng Shui 2017 software as this gives advanced analysis of every home or office facing any direction in any part of the world.

How far do we take the advice we give with regards to Feng Shui?

feng shui and driveways

In 2016, we will be placing the relevant Annual 2016 Cures and enhancers in the south, southwest etc to help dissipate the negative energy that is present for the year. Am I concerned about the south during the year of the Monkey? Not at all; having good Feng Shui is equally about being aware of potential dangers and making allowances and by doing this and also placing cures, you can and will avoid many problems as avoidance and preparation are two very powerful tools in Feng Shui.

What should I do if I NEED to repair a driveway or have a similar renovation?

In 2017, we will be placing the relevant Annual 2017 Cures and enhancers in the south, west and east to help dissipate the negative energy that is present for the year. Am I concerned about the southduring the year of the Rooster? Not at all; having good Feng Shui is equally about being aware of potential dangers and making allowances and by doing this and also placing cures, you can and will avoid many problems as avoidance and preparation are two very powerful tools in Feng Shui.

In my own home, the annual afflictions fall in to the following areas for the year:

South (Annual 5 yellow) – My bedroom and rear door are located here and this year I should ideally be going through the front door and using the back gate at the rear to access the garden although as there is only my partner and myself in the home, we will be using the back door as normal and opening and closing the door carefully and placing Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row , Salt water cure, 6 Metal rod wind chime and Shou Hu Shen Metal lily split across the two levels to protect this area and weaken the influence. For my bedroom, we will be keeping the area quiet and will be avoiding any candles and introducing a white throw at the end of the bed to weaken the #5 star.

East (Three Killings and Sui Po) – my dining room and bathroom are located here and this year I will aim to face east when eating and keep this area calm and quiet as much as possible; I could actually avoid the bathroom and dining room this year although the activities in this room are calm and quiet so they should not activate these afflictions. I will also be placing a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure and Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi in the east this year and also introduce some red decoration to active the #8 wealth star.

West (Tai Sui) – I am quite lucky with the location of Tai Sui in my home this year in one sense as I have my stairway located here although this can also be a very noisy area for our home as our stairs tend to squeak which means I will finally get round to crawling under the stairs and tightening the treads and risers in order to make this area as calm as it can be; please note that I will be doing this before the year of the Rooster begins as this kind of work can activate Tai Sui’s influence. I will also be placing a Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman in this area along with a Tang Tang Jie Tai sui gold plated plaque for 2017 and will have to put a shelf up to display the plaque which I will also do before the year begins.

What should I do if I NEED to repair a driveway or have a similar renovation?

If your garden is in the south, west or east in 2017, obviously you should avoid disturbing the ground this year but some things just can’t be left which could be something like an overgrown hedge or a collapsed pipe in the ground. If you can’t avoid building work or digging, use the following rules to reduce any harm that may result.

Back in 2008, we had to replace our large driveway that fell in the north, northwest and northeast and whilst some of these areas were affected, 2008 was the best year to do the work and if we left it untillast year (2016), it would have caused us many problems as the northeast is where the 5 yellow and Sui Po were located for the year. We employed extra builders (6 in total) to ensure the work was done over 6 days as even the monthly stars can have an influence. With placing all the cures in 2008 and also placing a 6 Metal rod wind chime in the NW, we had no problems at all so do not worry too much if you can’t avoid work in the south, west or east.

Place a 6 Metal rod wind chime between your house and building work whilst the work is being done.

Start trimming or mowing from a different corner of the garden. Let us say your garden is in the northeast of the property where the 5 yellow and Sui Po are located in 2017. You should remember to start your garden work from the west or east corner of the garden as this carries an auspicious energy in 2017.

The simple thing to remember is AVOID doing heavy work here and no digging or breaking ground, I have seen some nasty repercussions created from disturbing these afflictions in a year way too many times.

  1. I dont know if my kitchen or my garage is in the southeast do I include my garage?I have always not included it and activated my kitchen as if it were the SE. My gargage is to the left of my kitchen and my kitchen is facing the south. If my Garage/laundry room is in the SE then how do I activate it? besides keep it clean what else? there is always tons of laundry in there on the floor. HELP

  2. Hi..im planning to extended my house on the west area,and build 2nd storey on the existing build up area now.
    Would we be effected if we staying out the house thru out the renovation process?
    Does it still effected to the resident as well if we stay out of the house?

    1. Hi Henny,

      If you are not living in the home during the renovations, this will not effect you personally. I would recommend hanging a 6 metal rod wind chime where the work is being carried out. Good luck with your extension, Henny.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  3. Hi! Please help. I have two working table in my office. One is located in the East where i do my daily transactions and the other one is in the exact opposite which is West where i do my important things. What cure should i put in both tables? Thanks.

    1. Hi Jayjay,

      I would recommend a Tang Jie Tai Sui plaque for the west and a Cai Yuan Guang Jin Master cure for the east this year.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  4. I have a tree on the outside(in the southeast) that has been leaning on my fence causing to it to cave in. I am thinking about removing this year but after reading the post I am hesitant. I am a rabbit and my husband and daughter are born year of dog. Is it better to defer it to next year? Next year is also the year of dog, will that be offensive for Tai Sui? Please help! Thanks.

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      A lot of the time, it is very hard to avoid major work and when this happens, the best thing to do is hang a wind chime between the property and the work being carried out.

      It is always best to carry out the work in a certain area when there is an auspicious visiting monthly star which I have listed below you to make sure you can minimise problems.

      southeast – march, may, august, september, october, december

      I hope this helps, Jennifer and good luck with the tree.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  5. Hi,

    I have a bathroom with a washing machine in the south. Should I be concerned about the noise that it makes when working?

    Thank you for your awnser and a very informative page!

    Andrej

  6. Oh dear. this year we have a HUGE amount of digging to do all over our property as we are putting in the water, sewer and power lines. Only the foundation is in so far on the main structure, which is a combo garage with an apartment over it. Maybe I need some very large 6 piece wind chimes. Otherwise this makes me very concerned. What do you think?

    1. Hi Lin,

      I hope this helps, Lin and good luck with the work.

      1. Thank you! We were intending to live on the property this year, but we were hoping to sleep in a trailer, with the kitchen in a shed and outside shower and a small toilet. The tool shed will see a lot of activity because the work supplies are in it, and that kitchen. Door faces south east. The trailer door faces roughly north west or south east. We can move the trailer to make the main door face better ways. Is there a best way? My husband and I are west people and 8 White.

        Also, wondering where do we put cures? We are building the main structure this summer. Do we put cures In the trailer where we sleep, in the tool shed, or out on the property where we are digging in EVERY DIRECTION that there is!

        I placed the main building so it will be a Combo of Three house. Had to fight my contractor for that. He didnt like the angle, but it’s not his house!

        Your site is wonderful! Thank you SO much!!!

        1. Hi,

          You will not be affected from the noise and digging if you are not in the home yet so I would not worry about placing cures before the home is finished and you are living there. You would place your cures in the trailer as this will be your living space while the work is being carried out.

          If you can, i would move the trailer to face west.

          I hope this helps and good luck with your new home!

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

      2. Hi Michael, thank you for the answer! But I am confused, because the work being carried out IS building the main house. There is no home there. We will sleep in a trailer, eat in the tool shed and shower outside. So not sure where to put cures? In the trailer, the tool shed or just back in the woods?
        Thank you – wonderful website!

  7. Hello, i have a SE bedroom, currently bed backs up to east against window, as i am trying to avoid South. the only 2 locations for bed is East or South. my door is in NW corner. I am a rooster 23/2/69
    i am not sure how to fix this issue. do i move bed to south or stay in east under window?
    thank you for your help

  8. THIS YEAR, WE PLAN TO RENOVATE OR HAVE A BUILDING EXTENSION IN THE SOUTH AREA AND AT THE SAME TIME CONCRETING OUR WALKWAY AT THE NORTHWEST AREA.. IS IT OKAY? CAN WE NOT DISTURB THE TAI SUI?

    1. Hi,

      If you are renovating in the northwest and south, the annual #5 and #2 will be affected here and can cause problems. I would recommend placing a salt water cure in these areas for the year and also hang a windchime when you are doing work in these areas.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. Hi
    I am a wood dragon
    My husband is a water rabbit
    Our daughter is an earth tiger
    Triple whammy 2017
    Could you send us our predictions?

  10. I need to remove a hedge and replace it with a fence. It is in the south west. Would it be suitable for me to hang a metal wind chime in my porch (which is in the west?). Also, is it OK for gardening to be done in the east? I cannot avoid the maintenance during the summer. I am new to feng shui and am confused by your comment about avoiding candles in the bedroom. My bedroom is in the east / southeast / south, must I completely avoid candles this year?

    1. Hi Kim,

      If you have to carry out noisy work this year in an afflicted area, I would recommend hanging a 6 metal rod wind chime between the work and your home.

      You can have candles in the west and east in 2017.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  11. Please advise me! My kitchen is at west so i have to coock every day, will this be a problem for the grand duke of jupiter? What can i do?

    1. Hi Maria,

      I would not worry about having your kitchen in the west unless you are constantly banging pots and pans against the work tops all day. Just be sure to have the cures and enhancers in place for the year and read the advice for the west this year.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  12. Hi, thank you for this article! I wonder if you could just advise me please. We are having carpet laid on our stairway and upstair landing on the 13th Feb. Since this is the centre of our home ALL sectors (apart from the SW) will be affected in particular the NW and W. Only a very small area of the E and S will be touched. We are planning on putting up wallpaper and re-painting before the carpet goes down. I have recently purchased your software (which I love) and also the deluxe cures and these will be placed on the 3rd Feb. Is there anything more you can advise? Where would we hang the wind chime to cover the affected ares? Many thanks in advance! Amanda

    1. Hi Amanda,
      I am so glad to hear you are enjoying our software, our pride and joy.
      With the work you described which is very similar to what i have just done in my house, you do not need to place any wind chimes as the work is very light.
      If this changes and the work requires more heavy work like intensive chiseling etc then hang a six rod metal wind chime in the area where the work is being done.
      Hope this helps and good luck with the work
      Kind regards
      Daniel

  13. hello, if i already have a three celestial key chain, is it okay to still buy a tai sui card and a pi yao? Will the pi yao clash with each other?

    1. Hi Michelle,

      It will be fine with this kind of noise and refers more to prolonged loud television use or banging noise from a home gym or construction.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  14. Hi Daniel

    I would like to know if there is any amulet or anything I can get my fiance. He is having hard time in his career right now. May 24, 1962. Thanks!

  15. HI Daniel,

    My apologies for the typo error, it should read “Tai Sui” and not Tao sui (referring to my earlier comment sent on Jan 16, 2017.

    Thank you

  16. Hi Daniel,

    My husband’s date of birth is Oct. 28, 1975. That makes him a Rabbit and a direct conflict with the Tao Sui. We bought a Tao Sui Plaque however, I do not know which side of the bedroom (N, S,E,W) I must hang or display it.
    I hope you can help me.

    Thank you.

  17. The ad on this website causes the entire website to jump every few seconds. This makes it very very hard to read. Eventually i just had to give up. Really wish you would lose the ad or fix the visual hiccup.

    1. Hi Chrys,

      Thank you for pointing this out to us. I have made some changes on the backend; would you mind checking if that is any better?

      Thank you.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  18. Hi,

    Can you please confirm how long will it take to deliver in the philippines and if it will be sent to the the address and not in the post office.

    I will be back to Qatar on 16th of January. Kindly, confirm if its best to send it in the philippines or Qatar.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Jozell,

      Delivery to the Philippines usually takes around 14 working days so I would recommend having the order delivered to Qatar. Depending on your local delivery service, the order should go to your selected address.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  19. Hi read the articles and i just want to know what amulet should i wear this 2017 my dob march 24, 1981. Im a female

    1. Hi Marlinelle,

      I would recommend keeping a jade charm of a dragon with you as much as possible or a gold plated dragon talisman as this is your Chinese animals secret friend.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  20. Hello.
    just wondering if it’s disrespectful to place Tai Sui cure for a rooster 21/5/81 in the kitchen? As that’s where the east is in my apartment?
    Also: living room sits in the east and my bedroom is S/E
    thank you for your guidance

    1. Hi Todd,

      Placing a Tai Sui cure in the kitchen will be fine and can go in any room.

      I hope this puts your mind at rest.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. I also read, correct me if I am wrong, that you can place the Grand Duke’s favorite animals, Pi Yao, in the room of the Grand Duke facing him in the event that you cannot place Pi Yao directly opposite in home facing that same direction, in order to appease the Grand Duke.

  21. My spouse and I are gua 2 and I am a rooster female. We have a door facing North and that can not be changed but my question is this:

    In 2017 the Five Yellow is in the South and so is our bathroom. Can I place a hollow six rod windchime there as a cure? I will add a scc if needed there, do you recommend an scc in the bathroom?

    Cosi

  22. Hi there feung antimatter. I would like to know an amulet I should have in year 2017 as Tai Sui will be present on 2017 to avoid any conflicts. I will be moving to other place and planning to get married by next year too. My DOB is 06-Oct-84.

    Your response is highly appreciated. Thank you

  23. Hi I have my laundry closet in the south and recently had my water heater fixed (noisy issue), i also have my home office in the south west with my back to the east. Should i turn my desk to face south or east for the most benefit/cure of the strange energy? Thanks for any reply 🙂

    1. Hi Valentina,

      I would need to know your DOB before i could accurate advice, message me back on here with details and i will help you.

      Kind regards

      Daniel

      1. Also, apparently there is an aspect in the NW that is inauspicious to dig/disturb the dirt. My landlord had to fix a clogged gutter drainage pipe this year in that sector of the home. My DOB is 9/10/82. It just seemed strange that I noticed both of these aspects and I am relatively new to the practise. Thanks for your insight.

        1. Hi Valentina,

          You are a water Dog Trigram Chien and your most auspicious direction to face are west, NE, SW or northwest, personally i would try and face southwest for the remainder of this year.

          Hope this helps

          Kind regards
          Daniel

        2. I agree with M. Hanna about facing or backing good directions. I am also an East/West group person and although I cannot place certain furniture facing good directions, I first and foremost wont face the Grand Duke or back the Six Killings and as a secondary good directional principles.

          I was also surprised that water which is to be placed in SW this year can be placed in the East in 2017. My dilemma was the bathroom in the South where the 5 yellow is going to be. I have ordered a six rod hollow wind chime for that room.

          1. Hi Cosi,

            Great news to have a bathroom in the south in 2017, just make sure you hang the chime along with a salt cure and six coins tied with red ribbon and avoid any renovations in the south.
            Kind regards
            Daniel

  24. We are planning to purchase a north facing home but the south portion of the house has a huge empty lot and now being dug up for new developments for new homes and streets. What can we do to reduce the harmful effects of the digging and loud noise from the construction work?

    1. Hi Agnes,

      I would recommend hanging a six metal rod wind chime in between your home and the construction work. Depending on the distance between your home and the construction work, this should not cause a problem.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  25. Is there a reason my question (#14 above) was skipped? The reply was blank! It\’s been over 2 months and I waited patiently. The question that came after mine got replied in 2 days! Help!!

    1. Hi Carol,

      Apologies for not replying to your comment. We get several hundred spam comments every day and genuine questions can sometimes get lost. I found your original question using your email address and can confirm that if you avoid loud tools and stick to spades and shovels, this should not cause a problem as the problems occur when you are using diggers, chainsaws etc.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi ML,

      I would recommend removing the water and replace with colours associated to blue such as blues, blacks as it is only virtual water and will work well in this area.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  26. Hi, thanks for all the helpful information. We do gardening a lot. My question is: in the NorthEast corner, I have 2 small trees that died from the cold winter. I would like to replace with 2 small trees that are more cold hardy. Can I do it in 2016? or must I wait till next Year?

  27. Also, please can you advise me regarding the North West. For quite some time I\’ve had no choice to put my cooker there and after various reading up on feng shui – I can understand that this is apparently worse place for cooker. However, through reading hints and tips, some say have a black cooker paint the wall blue! or even put earth (perhaps ceramic plates) in cupboards above cooker. I\’ve tried all of these and something feels better. However though I now hear in 2016 it is better to have fire there! Now with black cooker I understand that water and fire are mixed! Along with my black kitchen tops and wooden cupboards, please could you advise us on this! Blessings Kazi

  28. Hi,

    Please could you advise me on the North East sector which lands in my garden this year. As my house has the North East sector missing (Lshaped) the North East lands in my garden in 2016. My questions would be – Can I place salt water and 6 Chinese coins with red ribbon in the garden? Can I still sit in my garden in the summer? Is it still ok to mow my lawn? Blessings, Kazi

    1. Hi Kazi,

      The Salt Water Cure and Six coins in a row cannot be placed outside unfortunately. As your home is an L shape, you have a missing sector which would avoid some of the influences in the northeast this year.

      You can still use your garden in the summer and mow the lawn although it is best to mow away from the home so you would start with your back to the home and go away to the end of your garden.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  29. Hi Feng Shui Web,

    Great post! I have need your kind advice please.

    Next year, after the Chinese New Year, the toilets in my home will be undergoing renovation. The toilets occupy a bit of the Southwest sector, and mostly the West sector of my home. The renovation is a total remodel of the toilets – floors and walls will be hacked and replaced by new tiles, toilet bowls and sinks will be hacked and replaced by new ones. Some piping works will be done, too.

    Also, the main gate and door (facing North) is being replaced with a new and better gate and door. It will take a few weeks to complete. The renovations are part of a government initiative and is compulsory for all. So I cannot stop it from happening.

    May I know what remedies can I use for Southwest and West sectors? Do I have to do anything for the main door too?

    Look forward to your expert advice.

    Thank you.

    Timotheus

    1. Hi Timotheus,

      If you are unable to put the work off, the best thing you can do for the southwest is to place a plaque of Tai Sui to appease him and weaken any negative influences. I know this will probably not be possible, but I would ask the builders to keep noise as quiet as possible when working on the bathroom and gate.

      I would also hang a 6 rod Metal wind chime where the work is being carried out as this will help calm the influence while the work takes place.

      Things like this cannot be avoided most of the time and as long as you check over the monthly Almanac and try to select a good date to start construction, it should not be too bad.

      Good luck with the renovations, Timotheus.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        Thanks so much for your reply. Great advice! I will do them.

        Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2016!

        Blessings to you and your loved ones.

        Timotheus

  31. Hello, we are planning to remodel our home along the southern side so SW area where Grand Duke resides this year will be torn apart. I\’m concerned of possible negative repercussions. I don\’t see what remedies I can use in this case since the whole back wall will be removed to open the space up. Construction should last a good 4 months plus. Any suggestions.

    thank you,
    Samaki

    1. Hi Samaki,

      If you are not living in the property it will not be as much of a problem as it will not be your current residence.

      If you are staying in the property while the renovations are being done, I would recommend placing a 6 hollow rod metal wind chime in the southwest. We have had a similar situation in our home and this did not cause too many problems with the wind chime in place.

      Good luck with the renovations Samaki.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  32. My sign is rabbit, my partner is a rooster sign, our apartment is facing West. The 2015 just started but then we already experienced lot of misfortunes and misunderstandings. I feel so stress about it, hope someone advice me for some cures. Thank you very much.

    1. Hi Ching,

      The best thing I can recommend is the 2015 Annual Cures and Enhancers Kit as this covers all aspects.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  33. my house kitchen is at West Sector. What should I do to reduce the impact in 2015.
    Help !
    Gratefully looking forward to your advise.

    1. Hi Janice,

      I would recommend introducing some metal objects and colours to negate the effects of the fire in the kitchen this year.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  34. My eldest daughter\’s bedroom is in southeast(2) part of the house. In 2015 it is very bad i think. So what can I do for this ? pl. help me.

    1. Hi Darshi,

      The southeast is not a good area in 2015. I would recommend placing six chinese coins in a row, a salt water cure and try to introduce some metal decorations and colours in to your daughters room for the door. This can be introduced with throws and a metal bowl.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  35. I read the articles in detail and found very informative and educational.
