The Rats luck should turn out to be another good year throughout 2013 although there will be a few ups and down but following this advice can help make the year a smooth one. With regards to career and business the year will be interesting and new opportunities can come your way and there is also a good chance of promotion throughout the year; try not to take a relaxed approach to your work though as you still have to work for the benefits.
Rats that are looking for employment in 2013 may find that their luck is taking a turn for the better as long as they are determined and are happy to approach their future employers. Although Rats are quite active people, you should try to stay as healthy and fit as possible throughout 2013.
The Rat will need to take care of their health in 2013 especially those who like a tipple, smoke or do not have a good diet or lack in any exercise. Please take a look at your health especially if you are a Yang Metal Rat born 1960 as they can suffer most this year with regards to health, the stomach and chest are weak in this Snake year. If you have a bedroom in the west or southwest and you are a metal Rat, place a Wu Lou beside your bed or some metal ornaments that are preferably round in shape which are good metal shapes. I would also make sure you place a salt cure in the southwest and have a look at the flying star advice.
As with 2012 this year should be used as a year of saving and avoid overindulging whether it is finance or eating or any other habit that could be bad for your pocket or health, this will be sure to pay off in the future; you can still treat yourself in 2013 but try to resist that fancy car on finance or expensive jewellery unless you can afford it but always remember to check the terms and conditions this year and check all papers before signing contracts. If you want to make the most of your finances in 2013, make sure you follow the flying star advice.
For the Rat born in 1960 & 1972 be careful of relationships as a busy and successful year can make you neglect relationships and your partner may wander. If you have a bedroom or other important room in the east place a temple Lion plaque here to dissipate the chances of this happening.
The Rat should avoid lending money even to best friends or family in 2013. All Rats should be careful of theft either by deception or just someone breaking into your home, do not concern yourself about this just prepare and make sure security is up to scratch at home and office. Avoid gambling either on cards or stock market and if you are offered a deal that is just too good to be true, it probably is especially if it comes from a family member.
2013 should be a productive year for the Rat with many social events taking place and a lot of time for planning and character building when an effort to do so is made. The Rat will find that they have the ability to set a good foundation and get far in 2013 if ready to spend time securing your future.
Single Rats can expect steady times for romance this year especially those born in 1948 (earth Rat) and even expect wedding plans. If you are married or committed, you should be prepared to spend a lot of time with your partner throughout this year and show affection when needed so make lots of time to spoil them.
Overall, 2013 will be a great year but you do need to be careful with your finances so please make sure you do not excessively spend unless you are certain that you are getting a good deal and always be sure to read the small print. Make sure you leave time for yourself and try to relax more as stress can be an issue and you may feel down at times, whatever is on your mind right now it WILL pass and you are on or soon will be on the right path.
Rats born in 1972 should take a steady approach in 2013 and should remember to take rest when possible throughout the year. Younger Rats born in 1996 should be try to put in as much time as possible when studying as the amount of effort you put in now, affects you in later life.
Enjoy your year and remember they are not as bad as you think, give a little leeway on your side too, if you don’t know what I am talking about you will soon and pay no attention to the Feng Shui websites predicting the Rat will have problems in 2013, once you know the potential pitfalls and place annual cures and enhancers you can avoid most of the problems.
As a Rat you are in affinity with the Ox. For your protection, you should have a key chain pendant of an Ox with you at all times throughout the year in 2013.
Your lucky sectors: (astrological zone) is the North (352.5º – 7.5º) of the home or office. Use blues or black in your decoration if you have a bedroom here. In 2013 the southwest is not a good sector influenced by the annual flying star #2 and I would advise you to place the relevant cures below in 2013.

If your office or bedroom is located in the southwest, east, centre or west please be aware that in the months of February, April & August 2013 and if you do not use our annual cures kit you should at least place a golden Wu Lou and set of six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon for these month especially if you are not in good health or very stressed.

To enhance wealth, luck, business and career for the Rat in 2013:
The most influential and imperative cure and enhancer in 2013 is called a hu shen fu Master cure, amulet and talisman and can only to be used in Gui Si (yin water Snake) year, the last time this powerful cure would have been used was in 1953. This cure is needed to enhance, maintain and protect in 2013 especially for the female of a home or office and more so if you run a run a business from home.
This cure is only known to a few specialist Feng Shui Masters and in olden days and even now in southeast Asia you would need to engage an proficient Feng Shui Master to call at your home or business and the Master would spend many hours engraving the secret writings onto an earth plate shaped as a heart (spearhead) of the finest quality slate, marble or similar earth element, which would then be placed in the northeast of your home or business and then setting the special thought form quartz crystals and i-ching coin placed on the heart earth plate would have a marking on it showing that the arrowhead must point towards the central heaven heart palace as this is where the #5 yellow star is located in 2013 and you must have protection against loss of wealth in 2013 because we have the #5 five yellow disaster star visit the central heaven heat palace in 2013 with the potential to cause many wealth and bad luck problems. This powerful amulet would normally cost tens of thousands of pounds and obviously only available to the very rich which is still the case in many parts of the world and the reason why we create these powerful cures each year so all can afford them at a fraction of the cost.
The ancient Feng Shui masters claimed that when placing this powerful talisman you must hold the crystal and i-ching coin (not the heart earth plate) in your right hand and close your eyes and visualise exactly what you would like to achieve in your life, in other words create a wish list in your mind but you MUST be realistic and not start ordering a six pack or a full head of hair or a bank full of money, you must not be greedy and only positive and good thoughts so you cannot use it for revenge or anything bad and as the saying goes “be careful what you wish for” and remember that dreams can come true and this I speak through experience. These hearth shaped earth plates have been especially engraved for us and you cannot just use a plate in a heart shape, it must have the talisman engraved on it combined with thought form crystal etc…
This is one of the most powerful and commanding cure and enhancer for wealth, health, relationships and protection and because this cure is very important for wealth in 2013 we included it standard in all our 2013 cures and enhancers kit. If you follow this link you will find full details 2013 flying star analysis follow this link.
To enhance romance for the Rat in 2013:
Romance can be improved in the northeast, north and southeast of your home although you have to be careful in the southeast as this is where Tai Sui is located in 2013, click here for further details. Whilst this #4 star is very auspicious, without cures can bring unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the cures are not put in place. Having a door in the southeast with the cures can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel. To enhance romance and career in 2013 place some dark blue objects in the southeast and the north, you can introduce these colours with a doormat, rug, cushion cover, sofa throw, curtains or similar material.
Be very careful if you have a main door, bedroom or office or any other important room that is located in the southwest, east or west in 2013 and make sure that you follow the 2013 Flying Star (Xuan Kong) recommendations.
To further enhance 2013 check out the monthly almanac, flying stars and animal predictions as it not only recommends good and bad days to carry out certain tasks, it will also advise if it is good for your animal sign.

To dissipate the negative effects in 2013 you should hang a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and a salt water cure in the southwest and centre of your home or office this year to control the #5 and #2 stars. For full details on 2013 flying star analysis follow this link. This is very important in 2013 especially if you have a main door, bedroom, office, lounge or other important room in the southwest, centre and east.
The 2013 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:
The Three Killings – is a direct translation from the Chinese ‘San Sha’. This annual affliction is mostly in the east (52.5 – 127.5). It is imperative that you do not undertake any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the east part of your house or office between February 3rd 2013 and February 3rd 2014. Nor should you disturb the ground in the east by digging holes, building foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. Once disturbed, this affliction can bring three types of misfortunes – financial loss, sickness and arguments. This is the worst out of all the annual afflictions and in our home and business we take this very seriously as in our 32 years’ experience with Feng Shui we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed.
With the very inauspicious #3 star also visiting the east palace in 2013, you have wood meeting wood which is a paired combination and can cause disputes, arguments and legal problems and needs very specific cures and of course when you combine all this destructive energy with the even more destructive three killings you need the best cure available in the east in 2013. You need a special cure – this special cure comes standard with all our 2013 annual cures and enhancers kits.
Apart from not disturbing its ground, there are two other rules you should follow regarding the Three Killings. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back to this direction (east). Secondly, it is better to face (east) this direction, especially if this is one of your four favourable personal directions.
If your front door faces the east in 2013, place a pair of Fu Dogs just inside the house looking outwards as protective guardians for the year. You must also place a golden coloured Pi Yao in the west looking towards the east.
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 Consultant to select an auspicious date to start the work or you can use our Tong Shu software.
Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) resides between 142.5º – 157.5º southeast. Do not take this affliction lightly. Do not disturb the ground in the southeast at all costs. Southeast facing properties with front doors to the southeast must be careful not to allow the doors to slam and do not renovate or dig in this part for 2013.
Sui Po (The year breaker)
Sui Po year breaker occupies the 15 degree mountain directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2013 is northwest (322.5 – 337.5). You should treat this area with the same respect as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities. If disturbed this area can and normally will cause immediate health problems especially for the elderly or sick so please be very careful. If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the northwest 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 consultant to select a favourable date to start the work.
The annual five yellow has flown to the centre in 2013 and because the centre is associated with earth energy with no gender, this is not good and the reason why so many specialist cures are needed in 2013. It is highly recommended not to disturb the centre with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work.
Please do not start worrying if you have a bedroom or office that is located in the centre, east or southwest just start preparing to place your 2013 cures and enhancers kit to ensure a trouble free year, and of course make sure you sign up for our free monthly 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 2013 software as this gives advanced analysis of every home or office facing any direction in any part of the world.
