2017 Flying star Xuan Kong annual analysis for year of the Yin Fire Rooster Ding You
2017 Feng Shui Flying Stars Analysis
© Written by Michael Hanna 2016
Are you really prepared for 2018?
The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
On January 28th 2017 we have the #1 white Star (Lu Cun) visit the centre earth palace and although the #1 star is considered an auspicious star in period 8, it can cause disasters relating to water and earth like earthquakes, volcano’s, landslides, floods and even further tsunamis. The reason why we could see a sting in the tale is because the two elements water and earth are in conflict and the annual #1 water star falls in to the central palace with the inherent #5 earth star.
Because the #1 star (water) relates to wealth and because we see a conflict in the elements the chances of an economic slowdown is likely in 2017 especially with regards to property (earth). Every year we work with hundreds of financial institutions and individuals making predictions on economics and are rarely wrong so take care with investments in 2017 especially I the second half of the year and also day to day spending as Rooster years require care with finances and paperwork so please spend wisely and make sure that you place your annual cures and enhancers as this will help lessen the effects and can help to turn a bad year into a good one.
As you probably know by now, I am a firm believer in the power of the mind and whatever you think or say can come true though I do feel a responsibility to share my thoughts especially as over the last 18 years we have always been accurate and we predicted with 100% accuracy the last recession back in 2007 and the political outcome of 2016 in the UK and the USA although I am more than happy to be proved wrong with this one as I and most other people would rather this did not happen especially as it just feels we are coming out of the last one.
The last Yin Fire Rooster years (Ding You) were in 1957, 1897 and 1837 and each of the years were years of great change and also great advancements in technology and medicine so whilst you have to be very careful this year we also have a lot to look forward to and with following this advice and placement of the annual cures and enhancers you can make 2017 a very good year.
In 2017 we have the #1 black Star (Ju Men) visit the centre earth palace and whilst it is a very auspicious star it can cause disasters relating to water, earthquakes and natural disasters and the middle-east and Asian countries possibly including China will probably worst hit.
The financial markets will probably grow in the first half of the year but the forecast from September onwards is not as good and you should think carefully in 29017 before making investments.
I know it sounds all doom and gloom but I cannot package it any other way and for those that know me, will know I always write as positively as possible but it is better to be warned and prepared although you must do your own research as we may be Feng Shui experts we are not financial wizards.
For the past 18 years we have worked with tens of thousands of financial institutions and individuals making Feng Shui predictions on economics and we are seldom wrong so please take care with your money in 2017. Please spend cautiously and make sure you place your Feng Shui annual cures and enhancers as this will help lessen the effects and turn a predicated inauspicious year into a decent one but of course we are not financial experts so we can only advise from a Feng Shui aspect so please use your own due diligence with your investments. This year the annual cures and enhancers are needed more than ever.
The Year of the Rooster is symbolised by two elements with Yin fire sitting on top of metal and this is a strong clash of elements as fire defeats metal and creates a very destructive energy, with such conflicting elements this usually means much disharmony throughout the world and some very special Feng Shui cures enhancers are needed more than ever.
Yin Fire symbolises a roaring fire which is unpredictable and sometimes provides warmth and other times cause many problems especially when combined with the metal element and this Yin fire combination thought the years can cause conflict, wars, and serious disasters, especially those involving water and if you look at history, there are serious disasters related to Yin fire such as the 911 attack on the World Trade Towers in 2001, this happened on a yin fire day (Ding Chou) and yin fire rooster month (Ding You), the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on a Yin fire day and year and Bin Laden was killed on a Yin fire day so sadly the prediction for unrest politically and military is very strong in 2017 and with the newly elected American President in 2017 I am sure there will be many changes with new foreign policies.
In traditional and authentic Feng Shui, we go by the solar calendar which means that from February 3rd 2017 to February 3rd 2018 we have the #1 white star (Tang Lang) visit the centre earth palace. The #1 white star is a peach blossom star which can improve and repair relationships in 2017 if activated properly and even more so if we activate the northeast and east this year. Every year comes with good and bad parts which is the reason why we introduced our annual cures and enhancers kits back in 1999 to help avoid most of the potential problems and make the most of the opportunities. The degree of this influence varies from one person to another. One of the major considerations is the heavenly stem of the year in which one was born so if you were born in 1926 or 1986 which would be a Fire Tiger, the year will not be bad at all.
In 2017, Tai Sui enters the west Tui palace and combined with the #3 star affects the youngest daughter. We last had a Yin Fire Rooster Ding You year was back in 1957 and this is actually a cycle of 60 years which will be found in a traditional “ten thousand year calendar” or our Tong Shu 2017 software. This year, there are more bad months than usual and it is very important that we treat the area for the year to lessen the negative effects of the monthly visiting stars in March, May, August and December 2017.
The #1 star is located in the centre from 4th February 2017 and this can cause difficulties for a home and business and specialist cures and enhancers are needed and of course our annual 2017 cures and enhancers kits allow for this, we have put together a very powerful kit where there are some very special talismans and charms included in the kits as standard as they are crucial to be placed this year. We have also published our 2017 Feng Shui guide along with our personal on-line report which is filled with customised information to each different person.
Those born in the year of the Rabbit could be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Yin Fire Rooster. Although the Rabbit is the conflict animal of the Rooster year, those born in the year of the Rabbit 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. Regardless, if you follow the advice here you can avoid many problems, in our opinion so do not panic. 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; you can find out more about this in our 2017 Feng Shui guide.
Metal Rabbit: 1951
Water Rabbit: 1963
Wood Rabbit: 1919, 1975
Fire Rabbit: 1927, 1987
Earth Rabbit: 1939, 1999
The degree of this influence varies from one person to another. One of the major considerations is the heavenly stem of the year in which one was born so if you were born in 1927 or 1987 which would be a Fire Rabbit, the year will not be bad at all.
With regards to Xuan Kong flying stars we have the #8 white star arrive in the east on February 4th 2017 and is the governing wealth star for period 8 and can affect wealth career and luck and because it is timely in period 8 (2004 – 2024) it is considered the most auspicious flying star. In 2017, we also have the Three Killings and Sui Po in the east which can severely affect wealth, career and overall luck if not treated properly with the right cures and enhancers. It is recommended that you place a Caiyuan Guang Jin master cure in the east to protect and enhance wealth in 2017. You must also place a salt cure, six coins tied with red ribbon and six rod hollow metal wind chime in the south and a salt cure and six coins tied with red ribbon in the northwest, these must be placed at the very least and ideally you should place all of the annual cures and enhancers.
Another bad star # 2 black, symbolising sickness will arrive in the northwest in 2017.The traditional method to dissolve this 2 is to hang a row of six metal coins and a salt water cure in the northwest of the home or business for the year. The Grand Duke Tai sui enters the west in 2017, hence it is not favourable to “move earth” or make substantial construction work in this direction so please be careful with noisy activities in this area. We have the annual #5 yellow in the south this year bringing bad luck, obstacles and misfortune and to treat this, we need to place the annual cures. The very negative robbery star #3 is a star of conflict and sadly this is located in the west and very special cures are needed this year to avoid problems; for the #3 star, we need to place a Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman along with Tang Jie Tai sui gold plated plaque for 2017 in this area. There are many good and bad aspects to the year and you can find everything you need on this page to make sure you avoid many problems.
In 2017 the forecast for the Tiger will come with its downsides during the year of the Yin Fire Rooster as this is the conflict animal for 2017 although please bear in mind that this is only one small influence in the big scheme of things in life. Things can turn out well despite this if you turn your attention to the monthly forecast on the energies of the space you occupy in your home and office in order to soften predicaments.
The positioning of the flying stars for the year has some good and bad areas in 2017 although we will still need to put the relevant Annual Cures and enhancers in place to negate these undesirable influences from being activated by visiting monthly unfavourable stars. The palaces to be aware of during the year of the Yin Fire Rooster are the south, east, west, northwest and southwest. Avoidance and disturbance of these areas is always the best cure but in the majority of home and offices, this is not possible as we are not all blessed with the option to abandon a room for the year which is why we have included the appropriate annual cures and enhancers below for the Flying Stars of 2017 within the individual palaces making the areas manageable and usable.
If you have a bedroom, office or other important or commonly used room in the south, east, west, northwest or southwest this year, please try not to worry too much; if you begin to prepare placing your 2017 cures and enhancers kit to ensure a trouble free year and be sure to follow our Facebook page for the monthly Flying Stars and Chinese Animal Predictions to make this year as successful as it can be. I would also advise making sure that you give your home and office a deep clean before the year of the Rooster begins and be sure to cleanse all of your old Feng Shui Cures and Enhancers to remove any negative Qi.
One other way to make the most of the year of the Rooster is our annual 2017 Feng Shui Guide. This book is exceptional and has been skilfully and meticulously written and translated to ensure you a good year in 2017, year of the Yin Fire Rooster. This book contains over 480 pages helping you make 2017 as prosperous as it can be. Look for the links below for more details.
The 2017 annual flying stars Xuan Kong full analysis is detailed below for the year of the Yin Fire Rooster. Please do not get confused with solar (this is when you place Feng Shui cures – spring begins) and lunar (celebrate Chinese New Year) calendars, more on this below.
Over the last eighteen years around Chinese New Year (solar) we select a very valuable and crucial Feng Shui cures and enhancer’s kit of little known Feng Shui cures and enhancers which protect your home or office for the year ahead and can be placed at any time in the year although I would advise to place this at the beginning of the year.
Many of these cures and enhancers we are using this year are very tightly held secrets in the world of Feng Shui and although many websites have tried to copy them from us, they do not get the ingredients right and this has been proven over the years to cause problems where the inscriptions and materials of the Cures have been changed or left out and have had adverse effects so please be careful that you make sure the company you get your Cures from are not just about the money and actually have a real passion for Feng Shui; we see far too many companies trying their hand at all different things and causing some very bad results.
The 2017 Feng Shui cures and enhancers annual kit is not just some gimmicky cures that we put together; every one of these Cures are extremely powerful cures and enhancers that only the most advanced Feng Shui Masters and consultants throughout the world use and quite a few of the cures in our kits are one that many Feng Shui Masters charge thousands of pounds for. It does not matter how late in the year in 2017 you place your annual cures as we have many clients who have placed their Cures near the end of the year and still got great results and still receive orders in January for Cures for the current year.
The most influential and imperative cure and enhancer in 2017 is called a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure and can only to be used in Yin Fire Rooster (Ding You) years, the last time the Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure would have been used was in 1957 which was also a Yin Fire Rooster year. This cure is needed to enhance and protect in 2017 especially for the female of a home or business. More on this later…
If you have suffered from illness, arguments, legal problems, bankruptcy, loss of wealth, health issues, relationship problems, accident, sore throat, skin problems, problems involving metal or just overall bad luck and you want to enhance your life and positive areas in 2017, read on…
Are you really prepared for what could take place in 2017?
Finances could be a problem in 2017 as Yin Fire Rooster years can bring about financial instability but if you use the Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure in the east and the Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman in the southeast, in our opinion you can help change the good to bad when it comes to wealth and luck. There is going to be many good parts of 2017 to enjoy and if you follow the advice below, in our opinion you CAN AVOID many problems and this is the reason why we introduced our annual cures and enhancers kits way back in 1998 to help you avoid many of the problems that come with certain Flying Stars.
There are going to be a vast amount of Feng Shui Masters and consultants predicting disastrous events around homes and businesses all over the world that will take place in 2017 and overall bad things for the year but despite what they are predicting, I am very much looking forward to 2017 and so should you; it is not as bad as they say and if you follow the advice below you can help avoid many problems.
Surely the 2017 cures and enhancers will make me exempt from any problems for the year?
If your bedroom is in the south, east, west, northwest or southwest and you do not tend to get much exercise and you smoke, eat takeaways every night, drink heavily and are overall a bit lazy and think that taking a vitamin C tablet at the end of the day will cancel all of the above from your body and mind, you are very much mistaken although I know you do not need me to tell you that.
Please do not think I am standing on my high horse being all righteous and perfect, far from it and I will once again be making changes to my lifestyle in 2017 and trying to stick to ones that I’ve been doing or tried before and will cutting out certain comfort foods (I say this every year but still can’t seem to avoid a big plate of pasta) and aiming to get some more exercise. I am just giving you this advice as I have worked with thousands of clients throughout the world and I know the outcome.
I am not coming from a moral high ground here and as hard as this may sound, I can almost guarantee you will encounter some problems in 2017 and I am sure I will as well. Feng Shui is not about obtaining the perfect life without any problems as this is virtually impossible although if you make the relevant changes this year, you can help avoid many of the potential problems and some of them will not be as bad as they could have been if you did not make any changes, placing just the Feng Shui cures and enhancers on their own will help immensely but you should also make lifestyle changes; finances will require care again this year and if you think that you can place the cures and go and spend a big sum of money straight after, you are mistaken; Feng Shui cures work to protect, dissipate and enhance areas of your life.
If you would like a more precise plan of how to personally make the most of the year, after you have gone through the 2017 Annual Flying Stars, take a look at the 2017 Chinese Animal Predictions and the 2017 Tong Shu Almanac and Chinese Animal Book or maybe consider our Feng Shui report which gives you completely personalised details.
As you may already know, over the past eighteen years, we have given this Feng Shui advice to hundreds of thousands of different Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners, students and enthusiasts and although we personally make a lot of suggestions on cures and enhancers we do not always agree with all of the websites out there that insist that you will only be protected if you spend a huge amount of money with them on cures and enhancers and that your home or office will not be protected without these cures and while part of this has some truth, as they are not always needed which is why we always advise different types of Cures so that those who cannot afford to purchase Cures and Enhancers can still benefit from simple changes such as colours and objects which I have written about below; the Feng shui Cures and Enhancers can make a huge difference this year and when used alongside colours, shapes and objects, the results can be fantastic although if you cannot afford these Cures there are still alternative options.
There are two products that I would strongly recommend to you if they are in your budget for the year of the Rooster which are our 2017 annual cures kit and the world’s most powerful and most widely used Feng Shui 2017 software, which has had over nine years in development, over 50 combined years Feng Shui experience and one year of beta testing with Feng Shui Master’s, Practitioners and students from all over the world. Michael Hanna and the International Academy of Feng Shui have built the most powerful Feng Shui software available which was originally designed for Michael to use when doing his consultations and was later released to the public to perform consultations on their own homes and offices. This software is used by thousands of Feng Shui Master’s. Practitioners, students and enthusiasts from over 126 different countries throughout the world.
What should I do if I have last year’s Cures and Enhancers kit?
Every year, there are a lot of books and websites stating that you need to throw away or bury your old wind chimes, six coins, Pi Yao, wu lou, Dragon Headed Tortoise and everything else that you have placed during the previous year because they store so much negative energy and can cause problems; yes, it is true that all of the Cures and Enhancers will store negative energy although this is not necessary with most of these Cures and I would recommend searching the cures and enhancers to see where they can be placed for the year. If you cleanse them correctly before the Chinese New Year begins, you can place them again although there are exceptions for cures like the Master Cure, salt water cure and more which will advise on the cure pages.
I personally replace most of my cures and enhancers every year with exception to a few and the reason behind this is that I have access to a very large warehouse filled with endless cures and enhancers. Every year we receive a lot of emails from people asking if they should throw away or reuse their cures and for most cures, you can cleanse and reuse them so I would not worry about it too much, just be sure to check the site for product placement for the year using the search function. The cures that we have never changed or replaced is our Wu Lou which is now 27 years old, Pi Yao, three legged Toad God or Tsai Shen Yeh and we cleanse these at the end of every year to rid them of any negative Qi they have accumulated over the year. We change our wind chime every year, the salt water cure we change without fail each year and I must admit that the six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon is always changed and our Ba Gua mirror yearly as these are very bad to keep for too long and the reason why we will never sell plastic or metal Ba Gua mirrors as they do not age and store so much negative energy and will cause you many problems. You must never use a plastic or metal ba gua (pa kua). Certain Feng Shui Cures and Enhancers could last you a lifetime although there are some Cures and Enhancers that simply must be replaced every Chinese New Year. Last year, we had someone contact us asking for advice for placement for a box of Cures that had been passed down to them from a relative and it turned out that they actually came from our shop and we always advise to pass Cures down to future generations as long as they have been cleansed.
To cleanse your Cures and Enhancers, you should ideally place them outside under a full moon overnight or in direct sunlight for at least 4 hours and sprinkle with rock salt although you can also use normal salt. Make sure you rinse all of the cures and enhancers under water (don’t forget to dry them) in the morning and they should then be placed in the appropriate areas as detailed below. This does not apply to the salt water cure though as these MUST be renewed every year without exception and must never be reused. As with all our products including the annual cures kits, they are all cleansed of negative energy and empowered with positive Sheng Ch’i energy before they make their way to you which makes them so much more effective. Every single Cure and Enhancer that we sell is cleansed before leaving us and is handled with care when we send them out.
My advice to you is that even if you have our cures and enhancers kit from eighteen years ago, you can carry on using the majority of it but please follow the advice above about cleansing and make sure the salt water cure (must replace) six rod metal wind chime(once it is looking weathered)and six coins in a row tied with red ribbon are replaced as these hold a lot of negative energy and can cause problems if they are kept for too long. A general rule of thumb is to dispose of your Cures and Enhancers if they are chipped, broken or worn out. Please never throw your Wu Lou or wealth ingot away as these are specially made for us and are the correct weight and size and I think they are a work of art and extremely powerful; I tend to get some metal polish every few years and go over my Wu Lou’s and wealth ingots with a toothbrush to bring them back to their original shine before I cleanse them.
What can I do if I cannot afford to purchase these cures or enhancers this year and/or my partner does not believe in Feng Shui?
Usually, the first thing that some thinks when they first hear about Feng Shui is that their home is going to have to look like a Chinese restaurant and cover their home in waving cats and large dragons covering half their wall to obtain Good Feng Shui which is certainly not the case and is a very common misconception. A lot of people also think that Feng Shui Is a religion and goes against their current beliefs; Feng Shui is more a way of life that helps to make the most of any situation rather than a religion. If you do not want to have six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon or a Wu Lou beside the bed there is always an alternative such as placing them inside a cupboard, wardrobe or even behind a picture; they are most effective when they are clearly on show but can still be placed out of sight. We actually have a lot of clients who place their 6 coins in a row behind a picture frame if they do not want it on display and if you do not wish to have them out for everyone to see, you can place them wherever you wish. For the south and northwest of your home or office this year, you should use some good quality heavy metal ornaments during the year of the Rooster which should be round shapes as this represents metal but avoid menacing looking ornaments like metal knives or similar or anything that is aggressive looking with sharp corners; the easiest and most discreet option for this is to place weightlifters dumbbells somewhere in the northwest and south this year. Although it’s always best to have the Cures on display, I have many clients who place their 6 Chinese Coins tied in red ribbon behind a photo on the wall or the salt water cure in a cupboard and still get tremendous results for the year.
An alternative to a salt water cure in the south and northwest in 2017 is a bowl of ultra clean, still water although this is not as powerful as the Salt Water Cure and needs to be checked daily and requires care so it doesn’t get stagnant or get covered in a layer of dust and bugs. The water must be kept squeaky clean otherwise it will cause you many problems so please be sure to check this regularly. 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.
In the east and north, you should try to place some real quartz crystal from the 4th February 2017 or objects that are made from an earth material like ceramic and make sure that any objects you place in the east and north during the year of the Rooster are square in shape as this represents earth, this will help enhance wealth and luck in your home or office in 2017. The most influential and imperative cure and enhancer in 2017 is called a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure and this cure can only be used in Yin Fire Rooster years; the last time this was used was in 1957. This cure is needed in the east for the year of the Yin Fire Rooster to enhance and protect the occupants of the home or office in 2017 especially for the son of a home or business. If you want overall protection for the whole of your home or office this year, I would recommend taking a look at our2017 Cures and Enhancers kit.
When we write all of the free articles and advice each year, we do not do this just to try and sell you something; if you look at all the information below you will find more alternatives for all the compass sectors without having to buy anything at all. We receive thousands of emails each year asking what cures they should purchase and although it is very bad business practise, the first thing we advise is to make sure their home or office is free of clutter.
So what exactly is flying star (Xuan Kong) Feng Shui?
Flying star (Xuan Kong) Feng Shui is the most powerful form of Feng Shui that is used by most professional Practitioners and although you may think so, it has absolutely nothing to do with astrology. Flying Star Feng Shui is an analysis of the five elements, land formations and star combinations that occupy your building and is not just limited to the home; over the years, I have consulted on farms, restaurants, universities, complete high rise buildings, storage units, movie sets and much more. Every Chinese New Year sees the annual stars change in every sector of your building and with this, it brings good and bad energy to different sectors of the property.
For the last 18 years, we have been giving accurate information on the Monthly and Annual Flying Stars and have given free information and advice on how you can weaken, neutralise or enhance the different areas of your home or office every month and year. Every single building throughout the world will have these changing annual stars and nobody will be exempt from this apart from those who travel every few days and you will need to take into account the Flying Stars ability to cause harm ranging from, sickness, wealth problems, legal problems, gossip, relationship problems and just overall bad luck but the good side is that the Flying Stars will also bring auspicious good luck in wealth, health, romance, education and overall good well-being. Flying Stars will always have an effect whether people believe in them or not so please take this in to consideration for friends and family.
Unless an auspicious star is activated in the home or office with the appropriate colours, objects and cures and enhancers, it is of no benefit to you so please be sure to follow our advice carefully. Flying Star Feng Shui Is extremely powerful and can explain a lot about what is going on in a home; every time I visit a client for a consultation or they call up to make an appointment, I make sure that they do not tell me anything about what is going on in their life as the Flying Star Chart can tell me all about their situation.
Sample of a Flying Star chart (natal chart)
The Flying Star chart below has been generated with our Professional Feng Shui software. This chart below does not just focus on annual and monthly stars but also your fixed stars that are hundreds of times more powerful.
2017 is the 4715th year of the Chinese calendar.
Due to time differences around the world, the first day of spring will fall what appears to be a day early in some countries. In China, the solar calendar of the Ding You (Yin Fire Rooster) year starts on 3rd February 2017 at 23:34. In GMT, the new solar year starts on 3rd February 2017 at 15:34.
Just to confirm that if you live in the UK you would put your cures and enhancers in place on 3rd February 2017 at 15:34 and in New York (USA) you would place your cures on 4th February 2017 at 10:34. The times were correct at time of writing 11 November 2016 but it is worth checking with http://www.worldtimeserver.com
- The first day of the Hsia (solar) calendar is February 3rd 2017
- The Fire Rooster year ends February 3rd 2018.

HOW TO FIND THE 2017 COMPASS SECTORS WITHIN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
The first thing you will need to have to hand when planning the compass sectors of your home or office is a floor plan! Ideally, you will want the original architects or estate agents plan but you can still hand draw this but it should be more or less to scale but don’t worry if it is not, it will give you a good idea either way. If you are in doubt when scaling down your home, try to measure the outside walls and then the inside walls and scale down. If you have our Feng Shui Software, you can actually do your own floor plan within the software which makes it very easy.
Secondly, you will need to divide your floor plan into 9 equal grids in the shape of a tic tac toe board or wedges in equal proportions as shown below. Next, you need to know the compass direction of your home or office. If you do not know how to take a compass reading, please visit this page.
After you have taken your compass readings; you will have a good idea which area falls in to which direction and you can then overlay the year’s Lo Shu grid (annual stars) according to the eight magnetic directions and plan how to make the most of the year of the Rooster. So in 2017, you will see from below that the #5 star falls into the south area for this home, which in the majority of homes will fall in to either a bedroom, kitchen, study or living room and could cause problems if you do not place any cures. I know this will sound like a hard sell but our Feng Shui software does do everything for you ensuring that no mistakes are made.
- This chart below was created with our Academy of Feng Shui software using the Floor planner section.
- The top left number is called the mountain star and affects health and well-being of the occupants in the home.
- The top right number is called the facing star which affects wealth.
- The middle number is called the period number and comes from the year the home was built.
- The bottom right number is the 2017 Annual flying star.
At a glance, you can see where all the annual stars are positioned along with the mountain and facing stars etc which is why the software has become the industry standard in Feng Shui. The chart below is actually a very special chart called a “combination of ten with sitting” and requires careful analysis and the software explains in great detail of how to get the best of every home of any age in any part of the world facing any direction.
This is why I do not want to know any personal details on a client that I consult for, as these numbers (along with land formations around the home) tell me everything about health, wealth, career and every part of their life.
The chart below is for a house facing 181 degrees south 2 (Wu) built in 1999
“A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.”
East (52.5 – 127.5) is the location and direction of the Three Killings in 2017
When at work, you should aim to sit facing the east direction if this is one of your personal good directions; please do not sit with your back to the east in 2017 or you may find yourself coming in to contact with unscrupulous people working against you or you may encounter undue gossip and back stabbing during the year. To calm the influence of the Three Killings this year, I would recommend placing a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi 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.
West is where Tai Sui (Grand Duke of Jupiter) resides in 2017
Resides between 262.5º – 277.5º degrees west in 2017.
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.
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 Sheng Chi Talisman and Tang Jie Tai Sui gold plated plaque for 2017 in all our annual cures and enhancers kits.
Sui Po is located in the East in 2017 (The year breaker)
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2017 is east 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 2017 Cures and Enhancers Kits.
Water placement in 2017:
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 really 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 2017:
Outside water can be placed in the southwest or east as this is your primary and secondary wealth areas for the next twelve years. In 2017 water outside in the east is good but please only do so if you know what your natal chart (flying star chart) and you also have a good facing star this would make a very powerful combination for wealth. If you do not know the layout of your natal chart or do not know how to create one take a look at our Feng Shui software as it does all the work for you.
Indoor water placement for 2017:
If you have to use indoor water the best area is in the east as this activates the auspicious #8 star. Regardless though it is better to seek professional advice before placing any water feature inside or out as in Feng Shui it is the catalyst to good and bad so please take care and consult or use our software.
If you are using water inside or outside it is extremely important that you make sure the water is clean and flowing and never allow it to become stagnant as this can cause Qi to become Yin energy which can cause a lot of problems. Water is a very powerful enhancer and is the essence of Feng Shui (Shui meaning water) the qi is caught by the water and cleansed (providing the water is clean) and distributed throughout your property. If you look on our resource pages you will find more detailed information on water placement for 2017 and beyond.
Whilst the methods above are considered safe, there are many exceptions to the placement of water and as Master Practitioners and teachers we use many more methods of water placement for wealth, education and relationship, these methods whilst extremely powerful can only be used with expert guidance and a full analysis of your property and land formations, please visit this link for more details of a consultation or home/business visit.
Salt water cure after just 4 weeks.
Every year we receive thousands of e-mails saying how the Salt water cure changed the energy in their home for the better; the Salt Water Cure is a very powerful and little known cure and one that we have been using for over twenty years although this is replaced every year. You should use the salt water cure this year as of February 3rd2017 in the south & northwest (DO NOT REUSE LAST YEARS SALT WATER CURE).
There are many exceptions to be made, the thing to remember with flying stars is, if you have a 5 yellow located in a dining room for the year and have an open plan home, the 5 yellow’s power can drift into any other part of the home. Think of the #5 star as perfume, if you sprayed some in your bedroom, your partner may still be able to smell it downstairs because the smell goes into the air (Ch’i) and drifts around the home, so as general advice it is better to cure than leave to chance. Avoiding a room is good although I would still place the necessary cures and enhancers as this will weaken or rid the effects of the negative Flying Star and will lessen the chance of the influence spreading from the area.
How do I dispose of my old salt water cure?
You should always change your salt water cure every year at the least; a general rule of thumb that I like to stick to is to change my salt water cure when it forms a few millimetres below the rim. This is because they store an enormous amount of negative energy and moving it causes problems in all parts of a building. The best way that you can dispose of your old Salt Water Cure is to get a Tupperware type container (margarine tub etc) and place the entire contents which consist of salt, water, glass and coins into the container. You then close and seal the lid and throw straight into an outside bin. If you do not have a container to use, you can pour the water down an outside drain (one at the back of house that leads away from the building) and place the salt/glass and coins into a plastic bag and place in bin. A safer way than pouring the salt water cure away is to wrap it in Clingfilm quite a bit and place it in a bin carefully. Please do not try and recycle, it is not worth it; this is the main reason we sell our salt water cures so cheap to make sure people can easily and cheaply renew them.
Please do not get tempted to salvage the I-Ching Chinese coins as these will have stored a lot of negative Qi throughout its use in your home or office. Last year I saw a few websites selling these for 4-5 times as much as us. As with all our products they are cleansed of all negative energy and empowered with positive energy and the coins also come from a good dynasty making them even more effective.
2017 Annual Flying Stars:
The analysis of the annual flying stars can only be conducted from a general point of view offering indications as to the potential influences of the stars in the respective palaces for the year of the Rooster. How each area affects the wealth and health aspects of the residents depends vastly on the quality and combination of the ‘facing’ and ‘sitting’ stars of the property’s natal chart and we cannot account for this in the report below.
If you have previously had a consultation by Master Michael, he will be able to advise you better for 2017 or if you use our Feng Shui software, it will show you where all your wealth, relationship, career areas are located as you could have at the very least two wealth areas and maybe as many as five. Please be sure to read all of the report below as you will need to make the most of 2017; it may appear that the year of the Rooster will not be a great year and there will certainly be obstacles to overcome but by reading the information below, you can avoid and weaken many of the problems that could come your way in 2017. If you would like to know more about what the year of the Rooster has in store for you on a more personal level, I would consider looking at the 2017 Feng Shui Guide Or our Feng Shui online report.
The east is very auspicious for wealth this year and if you placed a lottery ticket in the east in 2017, you will greatly increase your chances of inviting unexpected sums in to your life and winning the lottery. The lottery ticket below was created with an individual’s own unique lottery numbers with our Feng Shui software and taken from their birth date and just by placing it in the east or centre can increase your chances of a win tremendously. If you own the software you increase your chances even more as it calculates even more advanced formulas to tapping into wealth and good luck.
Kan 1 White In 2017 resides in the centre.
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.
Kan water #1 (tan Lang) has flown into the centre of every home and office around the world for 2017 and the centre has an inherent earth energy and from a five element aspect, this can cause conflict and whilst I believe there may be conflict in the year, I do not think it will be that bad, especially if you follow the advice here.
If you activate certain areas of the home it can bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and scholarly pursuits. The intensity of these attributes will differ in varying degrees according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars.
It is awkward when an auspicious star flies into the centre of a building as the centre is usually an area that is open or can fall in to several different rooms and this can be hard to place enhancers. If the centre of your home is the middle of your dining room or lounge, bedroom or other important room this is good news as the positive energy can permeate the rest of the home once you place some enhancers.
If the centre of your home or office falls in to a child’s bedroom or study area this year, you should place a Ru Yi golden wealth enhancer and gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue as this protects wealth and also creates new wealth in 2017 in your home or office. This powerful and time-honoured cure should be placed in the centre in 2017 to enhance wealth and relationships over the year of the Rooster. The centre must have some potent cures in 2016. A Ru Yi is also used to deflect poison arrows and it is also known as the “sceptre of office” and traditionally in China, it is placed on an office/study desk giving you total power which is why we have supplied this as standard with all of our Annual Cures and Enhancers kits for 2017.
When using colours for the centre in 2017, blue would be a good colour scheme to use in this area. There are many different ways to introduce blue in to your home or office this year and the most common ways are to introduce blue using bedding, throw-overs, lampshades, pillow covers, rugs or chairs etc. Although unlikely, but if a bed is located in this area, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside the bed.
Businesses that rely on sales or related to industries selling properties, stock or similar should be cautious this year and make sure you place all of the appropriate cures in the centre but also in the south and northwest part of your building especially so if they have a main door here.
Summary for year 2017:
The best months are April, June, September and November.
Take extra care in the months of May, July, August and December and check back here to further analyse these months.
- Place a Ru Yi golden wealth enhancer in the centre to protect and enhance wealth and relationships
- Try to introduce some blue, black, grey or charcoal colours.
- A brass Wu-Lou would be good for a bedroom that falls into the centre
- Place creative enhancements like displaying an abacus, calligraphy set, artist tools like canvas, brushes etc.
- Place a gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue in the centre to protect wealth in 2017
Kun 2 Black In 2017, the Kun 2 Black visits the northwest
The northwest in 2017 is not a very nice area at all and if possible, it is best left alone although I know that it is easy for me to say which is why we write the annual flying star recommendations each year as not everyone has the luxury of moving bedrooms or offices. If you have a bedroom, office or other important room in the northwest and unable to move out please read this section carefully.
If the northwest of your home or office falls in to a bathroom, utility room, guest bedroom or other less important room, do not panic this is great news for you and the effects will be much weaker than if you have a bedroom, living room or office in the northwest this year and for my home, this is a spare bedroom and downstairs a part of our main reception room so I am not too happy although not all concerned as I will be placing my cures and enhancers in the northwest so it should not cause us any problems.
If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the northwest in 2017, please read the advice below as the #2 annual star can be very volatile when activated during the year of the Rooster.
This star affects the health of the occupants of the house or office and can bring with it sickness, disease, bad luck, stress, stomach and digestive problems, bloated feeling, gossip, back stabbing, family harmony and distress. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4. Check on this page if you do not know your Gua number https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/8mansions.htm or if you have our software you can calculate your Gua and best directions automatically by putting in your birthdate and gender.
The 2 Black in Period 8 is an untimely star and hence its influence will be of a negative nature.
For the northwest of your home or office in 2017, you need to place a salt water cure, Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon, metal singing bowl and also place more round metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative influence in the northwest corner of your home or room.
The most powerful cure you can place in the northwest this year to weaken the effects of the #2 annual star is the Shi Dong Wu protection amulet. This is a very traditional and authentic cure that when placed in the northwest in 2017, can enhance and protect wealth, health, and career as the 2 black is a very unstable star and when disturbed with loud noises, its malevolent influence can bring many disaster, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth.
The 2 black flying in to the northwest during the year of the Yin Fire Rooster 2017 and can have an impact the eldest male of a home or office and normally associated with a father (patriarch).
A gold coloured three legged Toad is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but can also protect your wealth for the year. Make sure there are no red items, bright lights or burning candles in the northwest in your home or office as the fire element will feed the earth and activate the malevolent effects of the #2 star. If you already have these colours in the northwest, it is best to remove them but do not worry too much if you can’t, just introduce metal colours such as white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or any other way you can think of. If you have a main door that falls in northwest in 2017 you would also be advised to hang a Ba Gua mirror outside to deflect the negative energy.
Ladies expecting their first born should try and avoid using this bedroom. If there is no choice, try to use a good (north, east, northeast or southeast) sector of the room and implement the necessary cures. You should also sleep with your crown of your head in your personal Tien Yi direction.
If you cannot avoid using the room or the corner of the room in the northwest this year, you should place a brass Wu-Lou beside your bed. The brass Wu-Lou (also known as a calabash) gives elemental support to the northwest (metal) and also symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star. Because the northwest is associated with the patriarch of the home, the eldest male member of the home or business can be affected so make sure if they sleep, work or spend extended periods of time here that all cures area placed.
More importantly, do not decorate the northwest room with red colour or triangle shapes items and most important avoid burning candles or leaving bright fiery coloured lights on for too long during the year 2017.
Avoidance of this area is the best cure although I know this is hard so try and follow the advice and try and keep it as quiet as possible.
Now having given you all this bad news, I will now give some hope for those who are Gua 9 or 2 as this combination whilst on the whole is very bad it can be good for them in wealth and career, you will still need to place the recommended cures as detailed here but the effects of the #2 black will not be bad for you and can even give you positive results.
Summary for year 2017:
Avoid activating this area with loud noises; keep quiet and avoid at all costs building work or refurbishment. Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place a Wu Lou, salt water cure, gold Toad, wealth ingot and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours such as white, silver, gold or copper or any other metal colour. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the northwest of your home quiet, and avoid redecoration and building work in 2017.
Better months are March, May, July, October and December.
Take extra care in the months of February, April, June, August, September, October, and November.
- Hang six Chinese coins tied in red ribbon.
- Place a salt water cure.
- You do not need to place dragons and bells all around your home or office; you can use any metal ornament as long as it is not sharp or aggressive looking, and believe it or not a good cure is a round metal dog bowl or weight lifters weights.
- A brass wealth ingot is good for protecting wealth
- Place a gold coloured three legged Toad with i-ching under.
- hang a Shi Dong Wu protection amulet in the northwest of your home or office
- Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.
- A metal singing bowl is very good as is a stainless steel Dog bowl.
- Avoid using red colour in this room and refrain from displaying triangle shape or fiery pictures.
Chen 3 Jade In 2017, the sound of the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the west palace in 2017.
As we have the #3 Jade Annual Flying Star entering the west in 2017, please beware of possible theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers and legal problems. Try and keep the west of your home as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations.
To remedy the ill effects of the annual #3 star, you should use red decorative objects such as candles, lamps and lights. A nice simple cure to use in the west in 2017 is a red floor mat or a table lamp with a red shade. Do not use metal (metal colour is OK) to control this energy for you will aggravate it, restricting the beneficial influence brought by auspicious monthly stars in certain months and magnify its negative influence.
It is important that you do not place a water feature inside your home or office in the west this year unless a professional Practitioner has advised you that it is safe to do so.
Some books or websites that are available will tell you the #3 wood star is a good star in period 8, in our opinion it is still an unpredictable star and you should not try and activate it unless you are qualified to do so or you have used our software. It will become more usable towards the mid to later part of the 20-year period 8 cycle.
I have even seen websites and books recommending placing water here and I would strongly not recommend this unless you know what you are doing as incorrect placement of water in the northwest will invite arguments, divorce and legal problems without taking into account your land formations, period, mountain and water stars, please be careful.
Ensure that documents signed during the year are checked through thoroughly before committing to anything as mistakes and not reading the fine print is a common attribute to Yin Fire Rooster years and can bring costly mistakes. The influence of a Chen 3 in Period 8 denotes possible arguments, disagreement and in extreme cases, this can result in lawsuits, either as a petitioner or a defendant. Either case there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during 2017 especially if you have a main door in the west and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. You should also a hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2017.
In 2017, we also have Tai Sui located in the west along with the annual #3 star which can be a dangerous combination if not treated the correct way.
If your property or front door faces west in 2017, you must try to avoid the doors from slamming when entering or leaving your home or office. You should avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs in 2017 if possible. If you have an office or shop door in the west this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible and if you have children in your home, try to keep these doors from being slammed. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman 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 in the year of the Rooster.
Do not take this affliction lightly. Do not disturb the ground of this area at all costs.
To calm interactions:
- Place a light in the west. If you have the option, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
- Do not hang wind chimes of any material in this area of the house, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.
- Place a Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman in the west for the year
- During hot summer months, make sure the fan is not located in the west.
- Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2017 and check smoke alarms.
- Place a Tang Jie Tai sui gold plated plaque to appease Tai Sui for the year
- Check through everything before signing documents if office is in the west.
- Try and keep this area quiet and do not disturb with loud noises.
- Try not to let children or noisy animals play in the west.
- Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well.
Sun 4 Green In 2017, Sun 4 Green sits in the northeast of the Lo Shu square
The Sun wood 4 occupies the northeast palace for 2017 and this is a conditional star but it is auspicious in Period 8 (2004 – 2024) and governs romance, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development when activated correctly. If you want to enhance this wonderful star, you would do so by using a yin water feature or introduce some water colours such as blue or black. This is a good area to have a pair of Mandarin Ducks, Dragon headed Tortoise or photos of you and your partner/family.
A yin water feature is fresh still water and the ideal example of this would be indoor bamboo shoots growing in a small amount of water or fresh flowers in super clean water. When using a Yin water Cure in the west in 2017, you should use a blue, grey, charcoal or black vase. You can also use just a normal bowl of water, whatever you use, the water must be kept squeaky clean as if it becomes stagnant even slightly it will cause you relationship problems. The water must not be moving though unless a professional Feng Shui master has advised you or you use our Feng Shui software.
A crucial cure for northeast is a blue coloured Kwan Yin. This is a special enhancer and cure and needs to be placed in the northeast in 2017 to protect and enhance relationships and career and also to protect against physical and psychic attack. Sadly you cannot just any Kwan Yin statue, she must be of a certain width, stature and colour as we neem a light water colour to enhance this lovely #4 relationship star that falls in the northeast in 2017 which inherently is an earth element. We have included these standard in all of our Deluxe 2017 cures and enhancers kits.
Without cures, this 4 star can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the cures are not put in place. Having a door in the northeast combined with the relevant cures and enhancers in place can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel.
You should not use fire or metal in this area or colours such as white or silver. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours blue or black in the way of a floor mat, cushions, tablecloth or such like.
As in every star, the 4 Green has a positive and negative aspect to its nature. Although a favourable annual star in 2017, it can also be affected by the presence of an unfavourable monthly star and when it does, this can denote betrayal, heartbreak, scandal and humiliation in affairs of the heart. The affected months in 2017 are June, August, October and November so please be sure to keep an eye on our monthly updates on the website. Treat this area as your relationship and creativity area for 2017 it can be very good for you. If the northeast is an important area like a main door, lounge bedroom etc please keep it is clean and clutter free as possible, believe me it makes so much difference.
One of the most vital cures and enhancers in 2017 is the Xin Xiang Shi Cheng Wish and Romance enhancer and we had to have this specifically created and engraved with a very special talisman charm which enhances peach blossom which is so important this year with the #4 romance, career, wealth, academic star in the northeast palace which inherently is an earth area and this can cause conflict and this very special cure and enhancer is essential to ensure and strengthen and protect romance/relationships, career and academics are protected and enhanced in 2017.
Summary for year: With the above cures and enhancers in place you should make good use of this area especially if you are looking to enhance relationships or creativity, this area is very good for writers, artists, students and anyone that is related to the travel industry.
Avoid fire element and colours such as red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue or black. If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes though. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here especially wind chimes from the 2017 cures. Spend time in the northeast if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
Cures and enhancers summary:
- Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
- For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added on the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
- Avoid displaying too many metal objects here, especially large heavy ornaments.
- Fresh flowers or small pots of green leafy or flowering plants can be displayed in this spot of the house to lift the qi. Blue or green flowers are a good choice.
- Place a blue Kwan Yin statue in the northeast to ensure and strengthen and protect romance/relationships, career and academics are protected and enhanced in 2017
- If you have mandarin Ducks this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
- Place photos of loved ones or images of love to enhance relationships or attract new love. This can done with photos, paintings or statues, make sure there is always a pair in the image.
- Place a Xin Xiang Shi Cheng Wish and Romance enhancer
- For romance a Dragon headed Tortoise or Mandarin Ducks is very good
The 5 Yellow In 2017, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy is located in the south palace
For those who know me will, they will know that I am very different in the way that I deliver the annual advice compared to other Feng Shui experts. I do not like to use scare tactics or push sales on people and firmly believe the power of the mind is as powerful as Feng Shui and providing you have good intentions, you can turn bad into good; sadly this year the south is not good at all and my advice is treat the south with extreme care in 2017, good Feng Shui is actually also being aware of potential problems and whilst it may sound uncharacteristically negative of me to talk so down about the south, it is my duty to let you know how bad it can be this year.
Even with all this negative talk, I have my main office in the south and I am not worried so if you follow my advice and take the same attitude, you only need to concern yourself with my advice if you have an important room like an office, bedroom, lounge etc.
The advice I have given over the last eighteen years always comes from the heart and I try to make sure that those who do not use traditional Chinese cures like a salt water cure or six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon always have an alternative. Use plenty of good quality metal in the south this year and make sure you cleanse all your cures an enhancers before placing them.
As I mentioned above, I will be taking care when treating the south this year as this is where my office is located; am I worried about it? Absolutely not. I will be making sure that I have my Salt water cure, Six chinese i-ching coins tied in a row, six rod metal wind chime and Shou Hu Shen Metal lily are all placed in the south for the year and will be keeping noise to a minimum when possible.
Do not to disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with gardens to this corner of the property should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work.
The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen)’ in Chinese, is one of the annual afflictions. It is a very volatile star. It has no gender and no trigram and is highly dangerous when disturbed. When disturbed, its malevolent influence brings disaster, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. Do be careful with it. Stillness together with metal cures can keep its negative influences at bay.
The annual five yellow star has flown to the south in 2017 and with the Annual #5 yellow enter the south this year, we have the inherent fire energy of the south feeding the visiting energy of the #5 earth star which can automatically amplify all of the problems that the #5 is known to bring such as sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth so it is crucial that the south has as much protection as possible and is also kept as quiet as possible. I strongly recommend that you do not disturb the south of your home or office with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. When the Five Yellow is disturbed this year, it can bring disaster, sickness, lawsuit and major loss of wealth so please be very careful in the in 2017 as it is very afflicted. You must place a set of six Chinese i-ching coins tied with red ribbon, a six rod hollow metal wind chime and a salt water cure in the south to avoid the problems that are associated the #5 yellow disaster star in 2017.
The most important cure to place in the south this year is the Shou Hu Shen Metal lily. This lotus shaped metal vessel displays the eight auspicious symbols and is such an important cure to use this year. The most important aspect of this Feng Shui cure is the lid with the eight auspicious symbols and mounted on top of the lid is the representation of precious Jewels. The eight auspicious symbols primary role in 2017 is to protect but it is also said to bring large treasures, good luck, spiritual growth, peace and harmony and contentment.
If you are using colours in the south this year, you must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in this sector. Do not worry if you already have these colours in the south of your home or office, just try and introduce colours like white, silver, gold or copper; these can be introduced in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.
If you have a room that is not used for long periods of time such as a bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard in the south this year, this is good for you as these areas are not used much and therefore the negative power is less likely to be activated. If you do have a room such as a bathroom in the south, I would still place the cures though.
Summary: Do not activate the south this year with loud noises. Keep quiet and avoid building work or refurbishment. Do not use the fire element or colours related to fire such as red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, 6 Dragon Pagoda, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the south of your home or office quiet, avoid redecoration and building work in 2017 in the south part of your home or office and when you hang your wind chime try not to make so much noise with hammers etc, don’t worry about the noise the wind chime makes, this is all part of the cure, so when it is in place try and remember to knock it a few times a day.
Summary for year 2017:
Take extra care in the months of February, March, May, July, September, November and December.
To calm interactions:
- Avoid playing loud music in the south of the home or room in 2017.
- Do not decorate your room with red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily.
- Place a salt water cure in the south of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
- Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the south corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
- Place a Shou Hu Shen Metal lily in the south of your home or office for the year
- Do not place red objects, burning candles or triangular shaped furnishing in this sector.
- Most of all, avoid disturbing the south at all costs. Any form of renovations that needs to be done, plan it for another year. It is worth keeping this in mind.
- Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the year in the south.
- Replace or at the very least cleanse your Ba Gua mirror in the south especially if you have a door here.
- If you have a main door in the south make sure you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut.
- If you use a fan or other machines that creates noise or vibration try and avoid placing it in the south part of a room, get yourself a good compass
Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien 6 White (Wu Qu) sits in the north palace in 2017
6 White is a benevolent money star and as an annual star, its position in the north in 2017 is excellent for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the property market, so for those with a main door, office/study in the north will benefit greatly.
This year this #6 star can bring more success for anyone with an office or main door in the north.
Those who have main doors or offices in the north sector can expect excellent business and career success when the north is activated correctly this year. However, whilst 6 White represents accomplishment, if the #6 annual star is located in a bedroom it can cause problems with the liver and/or legs. If you do have a bedroom in the north in 2017, place some blue cloth like a rug or duvet cover to dissipate its energy.
A stunning and very powerful cure for the north in 2017 is the Ba xian Ba Gua protection talisman which is an extremely powerful and much needed cure and enhancer in 2017 for when the Annual #6 star flies into the north creating problems for wealth and luck. The north is a fairly neutral area for wealth in the year of the Rooster and in order to make finances as prosperous as they can be this year, we need a very special powerful metal Cure of an exact combination to enhance the #6 annual water star and strengthen the bond between the two elements and his is a crucial cure and enhancer to place.
Summary for year 2017:
Take extra care in the months of March, April, October and December.
This is a nice area and even better if your main door or office is located here, keep area active with windows and doors open. Good colours are earth colours such as yellow. Place some real quartz crystal here or the hanging faceted sphere type; these are very good for activating the wealth and business side of this nice star.
Enhancers and cures if needed:
- If this is your bedroom, a shade of blue or black in your furnishing or décor may help with health. A blue painting (not water scene) may also do.
- Place a set six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon this year especially for the months of October and April 2017.
- Place a Ba xian Ba Gua protection talisman in the north of your home in 2017
- Real quartz crystal is very good in the north for 2017 as is faceted crystal spheres.
Tui 7 Red The Lofty Wind of Tui (Po Jun) flies into the southwest in 2017
The 7 red star has a negative influence in Period 8 and can bring a lot of problems to homes and offices around the world in 2017 if not treated carefully. The trigram Tui is also known as ‘Broken Soldier’. This is a fighting star. When combined with another untimely star, its negative nature denotes assault, deceit, violence and robbery. This year 2017 it falls into the earth element of the southwest which is actually quite nice and we can turn bad into good here with the following advice so please read this carefully and implement the appropriate cures and enhancers before the start of the year.
Whilst some good will come from this star the #7 Red still portends a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing especially in the months of February, April and May.
If you have a door in the southwest or even a window you should be looking to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics.
An essential cure and enhancer for the southwest in 2017, year of the Rooster is the Ba Bao eight treasure coins in circle Amulet which are tied together with red ribbon and strung in a circle together and hold very strong power to attract new wealth in your home or office and can help to strengthen and protect existing wealth in your home and business if placed in the southwest in 2017 as the shape of this cure is a metal shape and helps to appease the #7 water star in 2017. This year, we have included the Ba Bao eight treasure coins in circle Amulet as standard in all of our annual cures and enhancers kits.
You should also a hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2017 but only do so if you have a main door in the southwest.
As I have said before, please take extra security measures and this is especially the case if you have a front, back or side door in the southwest sector in 2017. Make sure doors and windows are fastened securely before leaving the house. Do not display valuable items on windowsills, which may attract the interests of passers-by.
It pays to be wise this year and avoid taking too many risks for there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses.
Another extremely powerful cure for the southwest in 2017 is the San zhong three bell chime and you should place one of these exceptional cures in this area (southwest) of your home or office to avoid problems. This really is one of the most protective cures you can use and is also a very powerful enhancer for protection against legal problems, arguments, disputes and loss of wealth in 2017.
The best remedy is to stay away from this sector or try to use it less frequently although this is usually easier said than done. If you cannot avoid using this room, you should use more blue in your decoration. Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it and don’t forget that the negative influence of the monthly stars are usually of the earth elements.
The best advice that I can give is to make sure that you check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors in the southwest.
Summary: Keep area quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and quartz crystals.
Summary for year:
If you have an office or door in the southwest be careful of people trying to deceive you, robbery, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust. This applies to a lot of the Chinese Animals this year for more information on this, take a look at the 2017 Chinese Animal Predictions page here or consider our 2017 Feng Shui Guide
- You should try to introduce some blue colours in your decoration. You can introduce the colour by using cushions, rugs, bed covers, doormats or anything else you can think of.
- Do not use anything that is associated to the fire element or colours such as red to control it as this may aggravate it.
- Place a Ba Bao eight treasure coins in circle Amulet for protection in 2017.
- Avoid candles at all costs.
- Install or service smoke alarms and security systems.
- Place a San zhong three bell chime in the southwest in 2017
- Do not hang metal wind chimes here.
Ken 8 White has flown in to the east for 2017
This is the governing flying star for the next eight years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying stars system and is located in the east for 2017, so if you have a door, office or any other important room in the east this is great news for you although we also have the Three Killings and Sui Po located here so care will be needed and if possible, you should try using another door this year although this is easier said than done for the majority but If you have all of your cures and enhancers in place, you can still activate the #8 star and leave Sui Po and the Three Killings undisturbed. The Annual #8 star can be activated by human activity and normally, it would be encouraged to use this room as much as possible and with Sui Po and the Three Killings here, this room must be kept calm and quiet which is why the right cures and enhancers are so important in the east this year.
Although the #8 is a very auspicious star in period 8, this is somewhat spoilt though as the #8 star is associated with the earth element and sadly the east is a wood element which places the two elements in conflict but we will advise you on how to improve this.
Wealth, fame. Romance, prestige and distinction can be expected especially if you have an office here or a main door, even if you do not we can still activate it. It brings good fortune and exciting times even with the conflict of elements.
If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are good for this east palace this year. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz double hearts or a pair of Mandarin Ducks this year.
The east in 2017 has a wonderful auspicious wealth, good luck and romance (career) combination and this needs a very special enhancer and protector to activate this lovely combination creating wealth and good luck and also protecting it, the enhancer needed is a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi of a certain size and posture protecting a Ru Yi for prosperity and protection. Unfortunately you cannot use just any Dragon and the reason why we had these commissioned to a specific size, posture, colour, quality and weight, they really are very beautiful and would fit in perfectly with any home or office. We have included this in all of our annual cures and enhancers kits this year as this really is a vital cure for wealth.
If you have an east facing property with your front doors to the east, you must be careful not to allow the doors to slam when entering or leaving and do not renovate or dig in this area for 2017. If you have an office or shop door in the east this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible.
Whilst wealth is forecasted in 2017 for the east, beware of overworking as this can cause health problems. The extra work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular stress related problems as this can bring high blood pressure or kidney problems. You should make time for your family as whilst it is nice to enjoy the success we can often overlook things that are far more important like the ones we love and also our health. If you are older you need to be careful with limbs and joints so please take care in the icy weather and no risky sports if you have a bedroom in the east.
It is important that you try not to make any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the east part of your house or office between February 3rd 2017 and February 4th 2018. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes, digging foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. If you have no option but to perform work in the east, I would advise that you place a 6 hollow rod metal Wind Chime in the east in 2017 around the time the work is being carried out. This is the worst out of all the annual afflictions and in our home and business we take this very seriously as in our 36 years’ experience with Feng Shui we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed.
The most powerful and important cure in 2017 you can place is the Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure. This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2017, especially for the eldest son or male of the home or office if a son is not present and more so if you run a business from home although equally needed for females especially for wealth. This Cure is only known to a few specialist Feng Shui Grand Masters and in the old days and even now in Asia, you would need to employ a specialist Feng Shui Grand Master to call at your home or business where they would come along with a specialist zhuanke (seal carver) who would spend many hours carving the secret inscriptions on to the square earth plate in to a Lo Shu grid relevant for the Ding You year and would be carved on a large piece of translucent emerald-green Jade. The seal carver (zhuanke) and Feng Shui Master was traditionally hired by emperors and the very wealthy and was seen as a symbol of great wealth and power and this took many years of studying to perfect this specialist art form. We have included this in all of our annual cures and enhancers kits this year as this really is a vital cure for wealth.
Do not place heavy metal in the east this year, as it will weaken the good earth.
This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area for 2017 so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc in the east in 2017. If you use symbolic cures this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.
Summary for year.
Take extra care with health in the months of March, May and June. Keep this area quiet and try to avoid ground-breaking in the east for the year.
- Hang a faceted crystal sphere in this area of the house near the window or door. Hang it above head height and twist now and again.
- The red three-legged toad can be placed here. Make sure the toad is facing into the house and not towards the door and the coin is never taken out of his mouth.
- Place a Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi for wealth, career and luck this year in the east
- Introduce some fire colours into the east to balance the energies, a quick and easy way is using bed covers, rugs, table covers, sofa throws etc.
- Place a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure for overall protection in 2017
- If your bedroom is here, you can also place an amethyst or any crystal items in the east of the bedroom to further strengthen the earth element of the benevolent 8.
- A good romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz Mandarin Ducks in the east this year.
- Keep area active with open windows and doors (yang energy) although please be aware of noise levels.
- Keep the area outside and inside the east, north and northeast as clear clutter free and open as possible, you need to let the auspicious Qi collect here and distribute inside and outside when this happens it is known as Ming Tang , this is a collection of Sheng Chi (auspicious energy)
Li 9 Purple You Bi Li 9 Purple is found in the southeast in 2017
You Bi Li 9 Purple can be found in the southeast in 2017 and this heralds celebrations so be sure to make hay while the sun shines if you have a main door located in the southeast and because the two elements are harmonious, this really is a lovely combination so if you have an important room in the southeast in 2017, this is great news.
9 Purple is the star of future wealth and has an auspicious influence in Period 8. Career opportunities and promotions are possible and this is especially the case if you have an office or main door in the southeast in 2017. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.
This is a good area in general this year and especially for those in who are involved in studies in 2017. If this is a family area (living, dining or a library), you should try to encourage children to study here.
Couples with a bedroom in this location can look forward to good relationships this year and there may also be a chance of producing intelligent children. If you want to enhance this further, you should place a statue of Kwan Yin in the southeast part of your bedroom.
To enhance the influences of the southeast in 2017, you should place the Fo Xiang four Buddhas of prosperity and luck. As we have the Annual #9 Flying Star fall in to the southeast for 2017 which can bring double luck as we have the inherent Wood element feeding the Annual Fire element which calls for a special and very powerful Cure and enhancer named the four Fo Xiang Buddha’s of prosperity and protection. Because the #9 star falls in the southeast, which is inherently a wood area, you have double the luck with wood feeding the #9 fire star and it must be activated with these four wealth enhancing and wealth protection Buddha’s.
If you want to enhance fertility you can display peanuts in shells (groundnuts) or any seed products like black or red melon seeds (Gua zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’ and for the Chinese this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means the birth of many children. You should display them anywhere in the bedroom and of course be careful if anyone in the home suffers with nut allergies.
Although deemed as an auspicious star, the element of the annual #9 star can strengthen the malevolent effects of visiting monthly stars #2 and #5. You should hang a set of six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon here to weaken the undesirable influences of the monthly stars #2 and #5 which will visit in April and July.
Summary for year:
Be aware of the negative influences during the April and July.
- Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.
- Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.
- Place the Fo Xiang four Buddhas of prosperity and luck to enhance the annual #9 stars effects this year.
- Symbolic objects such as a gold abacus or six Chinese coins can be placed here all year round to enhance benevolent influence and at the same time dissipate the malevolent influence by the visiting monthly #2 and #5.
