2018 Flying star Xuan Kong annual analysis for year of the Yang Earth Dog Wu Xu
2018 Feng Shui Flying Stars Analysis
© Written by Daniel Hanna 2017
Are you prepared for 2019?
” The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
Welcome to 2018 Yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu). Although the forecast below may appear a little depressing, please keep in mind that we, at The Feng Shui Store, have a responsibility to let you know precisely (the good and the not so good) what the year holds for you. Where there’s a Yang, there has to be a Yin! When you’re aware of the worst possible outcome from a situation you’re then empowered to take action to reduce any negative impact.
We don’t like to read anything that leaves us without a solution to a problem, and we certainly don’t want to provide advice to you without the appropriate solution. Our goal is to inform and then give you alternatives and solutions to correct any imbalance so that you can start 2018 informed, confident and able to tackle any issues or dilemma’s as and when they appear during the year. Nothing is ever stagnant; changes occur in and around us every millisecond of the day and how you deal with what life presents and throws at you can alter the course of your life and circumstances either directly or indirectly.
Please keep this in mind when you read the forecast for 2018, including your Chinese Animal sign. We’re informing you of possible misfortunes. Some will be personal and related to you, and your circumstances and others will be a global issue. Expect the best outcome in everything but plan for the worst and it’s the planning and preparation that we’re here to help you with along the way.
We wish you a healthy, happy, prosperous and all things fabulous year of the Yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu).
On the 4th February 2018, we will have the #9 purple star (You Bi Xin) visit the central earth palace (heaven heart) as it did in 2009. While #9 star is an auspicious star, when visiting the central palace, it can cause disasters relating to water and fire, such as earthquakes, volcano’s landslides, and floods. We forecasted this for 2009 with 100% accuracy and, based on our predictions, thousands of our clients prepared for the year of the Rooster and were able to enjoy a great year.
I’m putting my head on the block this year, as I’ve done many times in the past, by predicting that, with a #9 star and central palace #5 combination we could see world markets fall, or at least correct themselves, in 2018. However, there should be a recovery reasonably fast towards the end of the year.
The year may also bring many troubles throughout the world, in particular in Middle Eastern and Asian countries. Having weak leaders could also compound any issues. 2018 may be a year of hardship, but you can avoid many problems by following the Feng Shui advice on these pages. Doing so will enable you to prepare for the year ahead, prevent problems and ensure a successful 2018. We’ve been making these predictions for 19 years with staggering accuracy, and the cures and enhancers have been the way to secure an enjoyable year.
The upshot for everyone is to be financially cautious during 2018. Make sure you place your cures and enhancers on the 4th February. You’ll then be able to lessen the adverse effects of the global economy and turn a potentially bad year into a good one. I know this could be a contentious point for many, but I’d love to see some corrections with house prices. House prices at present are far too high for my grandchildren to step up on the property ladder.
I shall now take my grim reaper hat off for a more positive lean on the year. While many Feng Shui websites are predicting complete doom and gloom in 2018, I think much good will eventuate from the year; in particular family and relationships. For maximum benefit and enjoyment, activate your south and southeast sectors of your home by following the advice below. Remember, there is much we can do to ensure the best year possible; we alert you to the possible upcoming misfortunes for the year and provide solutions with where and how to place your cures and enhancers.
For example, those born in the year of the Dragon may be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Yang Earth Dog Wu Xu.
The forecast for the Dragon may be inauspicious, but please remember this is only one small influence in the big scheme of things. You can expect a good year despite this by regularly checking the annual and monthly flying star forecast regarding the energies of the space you occupy in your home and office. Stay informed and you’ll be able to avoid or reduce predicaments.
For example; let’s look at a home with a bedroom in the north or west and the effects of this during 2018. The problems with this configuration could be related to finances, any bad luck, problematic relationships, chest and stomach issues and also depression. However, by placing the annual cures and enhancers you can eliminate or reduce these problems. If you are or were a smoker, and already have breathing and chest problems then the cures and enhancers could certainly reduce exacerbating chest health problems. If you’re a smoker and wishing to give up then 2018 is the ideal time. Remember, the flying stars will dictate the problems but there’s much you can do to lessen or eliminate the problem by following Feng Shui advice annually and monthly.
Those born in the year of the Dragon could be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Yang Earth Dog in 2018 as the Dragon is the conflict animal of the Dog. Those born in the year of the Dragon 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 2018 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 wealth star enter the southeast in February 4th 2018 and this is the governing wealth star for period 8 (2004 – 2024) although we have Sui Po in the southeast for the year which can cause wealth and career problems and overall bad luck so it is very important to read the advice below and place the relevant cures and enhancers in the southeast in order to avoid problems and enhance wealth luck for the year. It is recommended that you place a jiebaopinchuan Master Cure along with a Cai Leishui hanging crystal talisman in the southeast during 2018 to protect and enhance wealth. You should also place a salt water cure, six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon in the west and north at the least as these are essential cures for the annual #5 and #2 inauspicious Flying stars for 2018. All of the cures and enhancers I have mentioned are from our 2018 Cures and enhancers kits although we do recommend alternatives for every area of your home as we like to offer as much advice as possible.
I mentioned the #2 black and #5 yellow star very briefly above and will go into a little more detail about them now as these are important stars to treat as they can bring lots of problems if left alone without cures and enhancers.
Where is the #2 star located in 2018?
The #2 black star is located in the west in 2018 and can bring illness to the occupants of the home this year if not treated carefully. The traditional method to dissolve the #2 star is to hang a row of 6 metal I-Ching Chinese coins in the west for the year; wherever you get the 6 coins in a row from, please make sure they are from a good dynasty as a lot of stores overlook this important fact and go for the cheapest option which can cause more bad than good. It is also important to place a salt water cure in the west during 2018 and again, please make sure the coins are from a good dynasty. In our Cures and Enhancers kit for 2018, we have included the salt water cure and six coins along with a Guanshiyin protection bell to treat the west for the year.
Where is the #5 star located in 2018?
The #5 yellow star is located in the north in 2018 and is an extremely unstable star. It has no gender and no trigram and is highly treacherous when disturbed. When disturbed, its malicious influence brings tragedy, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. During 2018, we also have the Three killings present in the north so it is crucial that you do not have loud noise in the north in 2018 and do not break 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. It is important to place a set of 6 coins in a row along with a salt water cure in the north in 2018 to weaken the malevolent effects of the annual #5 star. It is also important to place a six rod hollow metal wind chime in the north along with other metal cures.
Where are the worst flying stars in 2018?
The layout of the Flying star for the year has both positive and negative influences in different areas during 2018 and it is important that we treat the negative stars and enhance the positive ones with the Annual Cures and enhancers throughout the year of the Dog. The palaces to be aware of in your home or office during 2018 are the east, west, northeast, north and northwest. 2018 is a tricky year as we have the northeast, north and northwest with bad stars which in a north facing home would cause the whole front of the home to be affected by negative annual stars which in my home is the spare bedroom and kitchen which is not as bad as it could be as these rooms are not used as much as a master bedroom or living room; it is important to note that the effects of the negative stars will be dependent on which room they fall in. It is not easy for the majority of us to abandon rooms with negative annual stars which is why we have included the appropriate annual cures and enhancers below for the Flying Stars of 2018 within the individual palaces making the areas manageable and usable.
If the east, west, northeast, north and northwest falls into an important room such as a bedroom, living room or office in 2018, it is important that you do not panic as you will discover when you finish reading this article that you have everything in your power to avoid the problems predicted. The most valuable advice I can give you for 2018 is to make sure that you prepare for the year of the Dog early; every year, we hear from thousands of Feng Shui enthusiasts and masters saying they forgot how close Chinese New Year was and how they have not even begun to prepare and this is where the most mistakes are made. Having a clear plan of what cures need to go where for the year will ensure you get things right for the year of the Dog. Take a look at our shop pages to see what we recommend for the different palaces for 2018; you don’t have to purchase them from us if you don’t want to but it will give you a good of what cures should go where in 2018 for wealth, health etc. for the past 19 years, we have put together a range of carefully selected cures and enhancers as a kit that we feel are the most effective for the year ahead and for 2018, I feel this is our best one yet and I have personally spent a very long time sourcing the best quality cures and enhancers possible for the year of the Dog. I would also advise making sure that you give your home and office a deep clean before the year of the Dog begins and be sure to cleanse all of your old Feng Shui Cures and Enhancers to remove any negative Qi.
Another way to prepare yourself for the year of the Dog is out annual 2018 Feng Shui guide e-book. This downloadable book is an extremely valuable tool and has been written by myself for the year of the Yang Earth Dog. This e-book contains over 400 pages to help you make the year of the Dog as prosperous as it can possibly be.
You will find the 2018 Flying star Xuan Kong full analysis detailed below for the year of the Yang Earth Dog. Please do not get confused between the date that the flying stars change (Solar New Year) and the date that you celebrate Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) – I will talk more about this below.
What cures should I place in my home for the year of the Dog?
Every year, since we first opened the Feng Shui Store in 1999, we put together a range of very carefully selected cures and enhancers for our Feng Shui Annual cures and enhancers kits with the most powerful cures and enhancers for the year ahead and for 2018, we have spent a considerable amount of time sourcing the most powerful cures and enhancers that we can find. These cures and enhancers can be placed any time during the year of the Dog in 2018 although to fully benefit, I would recommend having your cures and enhancers kit ready to place on the 4th February 2018.
A lot of the cures and enhancers included in the 2018 cures and enhancers kit are very tightly held secrets in the world of Feng Shui and although many websites have tried to copy them from us, if you take a look at their versions, you will notice that they are nearly always incomplete and missing the inscriptions which can prove very dangerous if placed; wherever you get your cures and enhancers for the year of the Dog, please take care when choosing as we have found that the more popular Feng Shui becomes, the more diluted the authenticity becomes with pop up companies trying to make quick cash without having any real knowledge in the history and application of Feng Shui.
The 2018 cures and enhancers kit are not gimmicky cures that we put together for the year; every single cure and enhancer is carefully selected by us and the majority of the time, we have each cure made especially for us with better quality metals and materials to ensure what we offer to you is the best quality it can be. The majority of the cures and enhancers in our kits are usually only available to select clients of the most advanced Feng Shui masters around the world and would cost thousands of pounds for access to these cures although it is our belief that cures and enhancers should be available to everyone and not just clients who have a had a consultation on their home or office. It does not matter how late in the year in 2018 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 2018 is called jiebaopinchuan Master Cure and can only to be used in Yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu) years, the last time the jiebaopinchuan Master Cure would have been used was in 1958 which was also a Yang Earth Dog year. This cure is needed to enhance and protect in 2018 especially for the eldest daughter or 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 2018, read on…
Are you really prepared for what could take place in 2018, year of the Yang Earth Dog?
For every person around the world, including both the rich and the poor, finances could be affected during 2018 and care will be needed as Dog years can bring wealth unpredictability although if you place the jiebaopinchuan Master Cure in the southeast of your home or office along with huaxianweiyi Sheng Chi cure and enhancer in the east, in our opinion, will help you avoid problems and create wealth and luck in your life for the year of the Yang Earth Dog. Please do not think that 2018 will all be doom and gloom; as I said above, by being aware of the potential problems, you can take action to avoid what could take place and turn bad in to good. There will be a lot to look forward to in 2018 and if you follow the advice in this article, you can avoid many potential problems and this is why we first introduced the cures and enhancers kits 19 years ago so that you can avoid many problems that are predicted in each year.
There will be Feng Shui Masters and consultants all around the world who will be telling you what a disastrous year 2018 will be and how there will be disastrous events all around homes and businesses everywhere but despite what they are predicting, I am very excited for 2018 as I will be celebrating my 30th birthday this year and more importantly, I will be getting married in September 2018. If you take everything that every Feng Shui Master predicts too seriously, you’ll be too scared to plan anything or go anywhere so take this with a pinch of salt and go in to the year of the Dog with a big smile on your face and a good action plan regarding your home and work place.
I’ve got the 2018 cures and enhancers, surely this will make me exempt from any problems in 2018?
If your bedroom is in the east, west, northeast, north or northwest in 2018 and you have a tendency to avoid exercise and healthy eating and tend to indulge in a takeaway more often than they should along with a few alcoholic drinks and think that by taking a multivitamin, they will stay in perfect health and not put any weight on, they are very much mistaken although I know that you don’t need me to tell you that.
By no means am I trying to convince you that my body is a temple and I do not touch any takeaways; I will be the first to say yes if someone suggests a Thai red curry on a night out although I will continue trying to maintain a good balance with diet and exercise. I will admit that I write this every year and I am still not eating as healthy as I should although I do keep taking little steps in the right direction and am semi regular in the gym; it’s definitely a marathon rather than a sprint.
I can almost guarantee that you will face some manner of problems during the year of the Dog the same as I probably will. Feng Shui is not about working towards a totally problem free life otherwise you would not have any Feng Shui Masters because they would all be rich with a huge house and luxurious lifestyle; Feng Shui is the practise of enhancing the good aspects in your life and suppressing the bad aspects to create an enjoyable life and avoid problems that could potentially come your way without the help of Feng Shui. placing just the Feng Shui cures and enhancers on their own will help immensely but you should also make lifestyle changes. Finances are going to require care again this year and if you think that you can place the cures on a Monday and then go and purchase a brand-new Range Rover on the Tuesday, you are likely mistaken; Feng Shui cures work to protect, dissipate and enhance areas of your life.
How do I prepare for Chinese New Year 2018?
If you would like a more detailed plan on how you can make the most out of the year of the dog, I would start by reading through the 2018 Annual Flying Stars and then take a look at the 2018 Chinese Animal Predictions. After reading through these two documents, I would recommend taking a look at our 2018 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, for the last nineteen years, we have given this Feng Shui advice to hundreds of thousands of different Feng Shui masters, practitioners, students and enthusiasts from every corner of the world and while we will make a lot of different suggestions on cures and enhancers to be placed in each sector for each year, we do not always agree with the approach some websites take when they state that you will not be able to enjoy a good year if you do not purchase the cures and enhancers that they have on their website and that you must place 20 different cures in each sector, usually charging a considerable amount more than they should; although some of this has some truth to it, you do not need to cover your whole home or office in cures and enhancers in order to activate or weaken the annual stars. We have always, over our 19 years of running the Feng Shui Store, offered a different range of cures and enhancers along with advice for free alternatives that you can implement in the way of colours to use, shapes and objects as it is our belief that everyone should have access to valuable advice on how to make the year as successful as it can be without being bullied in to purchasing anything if they don’t want to.
Two products that I would strongly recommend to you if your budget allows so for the year of the Dog are our 2018 annual cures and enhancers kit alongside the world’s most powerful and popular Feng Shui software which was the result of over nine years in development with 50 combined years Feng Shui experience. 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?
I come across websites every year stating that you need to throw away or bury your old cures and enhancers such as your wind chime, Pi Yao, Wealth Ingot, Buddha and every other cure that you have placed the previous year due to the fact that they store so much negative energy. Although this is true that your Cures and Enhancers store a lot of negative energy, it is not true that you need to throw away or bury your old Cures and Enhancers. Although some cures such as the Salt Water cure and Six coins should be replaced after every Chinese New Year, most Cures can be cleansed and placed back in their appropriate compass sector. To find out which of your Cures and Enhancers need to be replaced, I would search them in the store and read the advice as we state what can be reused and what should be renewed. To find out how to cleanse your cures, take a look at THIS LINK.
Personally, I replace most of my Cures and Enhancers every year apart from certain cures such as my brass Wu Lou and my Three immortals statues (I bought these in Bangkok many years ago and they’re too beautiful to throw away). The reason I replace my cures each year is mainly due to the fact that I can walk in to the warehouse that has thousands of each product and pick out what I need. We change our wind chime and Pi Yao 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. All of our Cures and Enhancers are cleansed of negative energy and empowered with positive Sheng Ch’I when we first receive them and also when they are sent out which makes them much more powerful.
I would recommend that even if you have our cures and enhancers kit from nineteen years ago, you can still carry on using the majority of it but please ensure that the following items are replaced annually as these hold a great deal of negative energy and can cause problems if kept for too long. We get a lot of phone calls and emails asking about throwing away cures due to damage; I would recommend throwing a cure away if it is chipped on part of the min part of the cure such as a head or hand. I would not worry If there is just a small chip on the corner of a Fu Dog or something similar. 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.
- Salt water cure
- Six Chinese I-Ching coins in a row
- Ba Gua mirror (Only if it is looking weathered)
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 don’t want to have a Wu Lou beside your bed or six Chinese coins in a row in the west or north for 2018, there is always another option such as placing it out of sight in a cupboard or behind a picture frame; the cures will not be as effective although they will still 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.
You should use some good quality heavy metal ornaments in the south and northwest of your home or office this year during 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 gym dumbbells somewhere in the west and north in 2018. Although it’s always better to have your Cures and enhancers 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.
If you do not want to place a salt water cure or cannot afford to do so in the west and north in 2018, an alternative to this is a bowl of ultra clean, still water and while this is not as noticeable, it is a lot more discreet and is also a free option. Please ensure that the water is checked daily and does not get stagnant or get covered in dust as this can cause a lot of problems in your home or office. 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.
You should try to place some real quartz crystal in the southeast and southwest where the #6 and #8 annual stars are located from the 4th February 2018 or objects that are made of earth material and try to keep any objects placed in the southeast or southwest square in shape as this will enhance the annual stars during the year of the Dog and strengthen wealth and luck in your home or office during 2018. The most powerful and influential cure and enhancer for 2018 is the Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure and this cure can only to be used in a Yang Earth Dog Wu Xu year. The last time that this powerful cure and enhancer would have been used was in 1958 which was also a Yang Earth Dog year although only a privileged few got to use it.
This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2018, especially for the eldest daughter or female of the home or office if a daughter is not present although equally needed for males especially for wealth. If you want overall protection for the whole of your home or office this year, I would recommend taking a look at our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kit.
Whenever we write all of the annual advice, we do not do this just to try and sell you something; if you look at all of the information below, you will see that we usually offer more advice for free alternatives to each compass sector than we recommend products. Every year, we receive thousands of emails and phone calls from people all around the world asking what cures they should buy from us and although this is terrible business practise on our part, the first thing we advise is to make sure their home or office is free of clutter and to take a look through this article and implement the free recommendations.
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 19 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.

HOW TO FIND THE 2018 COMPASS SECTORS WITHIN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
When trying to find the compass sectors in your home or office, the first thing that you will need possession of is a floor plan! The best option is to have an original copy of the floor plan of your home from the architect or estate agent although you can still get an accurate idea of the boundaries in the building. Please make sure that if you draw the floor plan yourself that it is more or less to scale. If you are hesitant of drawing the floor plan yourself, try measuring the outside walls and scale this down accordingly; if you Google search “scale drawing calculator”, you will find some great websites to help with this. 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 are going to have 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 Dog; If you already know the fixed Flying Stars for your home or office, you can check how the annual stars coincide with them. So, in 2018, you will see from the floor plan below that the #5 star falls into the north 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 2018 Annual flying star.
By taking a look at the chart below, you can see where all the annual stars are positioned along with the mountain and facing stars etc which is why the Academy of Feng Shui software has become the industry standard with masters and enthusiasts alike. The chart in the home below is actually a very special chart called a “Combination of ten with sitting” which requires careful analysis and the software explains in great detail how to get the best result for this home and also every other home in any age in any country in the world.
Whenever I take a call from a client about requesting a consultation, the first thing I say is that I do not want to know any personal details as the Flying Stars, along with the land formations of the home tell me everything I need to know about health, wealth, career and every other aspect 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.”
Avoiding bad luck in 2018
As we have the #2 black star enter the west of the lo shu in 2018 and special cures and enhancers are needed more than ever but at the very least to help disperse the negative effects, you should hang a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and a salt water cure in the west and north of your home or office this year to control the #5 and #2 stars. For full details on 2018 flying star analysis follow this link. This is very important in 2018 especially if you have a main door, bedroom, office, lounge or other important room in the west, east, north or northeast.
This is just a small part of what you can do to ensure 2018 will be a good year and to further enhance 2018 I would suggest checking 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.
If you would like to be informed in advance of the monthly, annual and fixed flying stars giving you the ultimate control of your home or business, you should consider our 2018 advanced Feng Shui software; it is used by thousands of Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners and students throughout the world. Combining this with our new incredible and extremely powerful Tong Shu Almanac date selection software this will make 2018 a better year indeed.
The Three Killings – north (322.5 – 37.5)
It is important that you try not to make any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the north part of your house or office between February 4th 2018 and February 4th 2019 as we have both the Three Killings located in the north but we also have the annual 5 yellow here for the year. 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 north, I would advise that you place a 6 Metal rod wind chime in the north during 2018 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 37 years’ experience with Feng Shui, we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed and this is usually the reason of the problem when people trace back the Flying stars for their home when problems occur.
There are also another two other rules that you should follow regarding the Three Killings in 2018. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back towards the north, it is better to face north instead.
- Do not sit with your back to the three killings in 2o18
- Sit facing the three killings (north)
- Try to keep noise to a minimum in the north in 2018
If the front door of your home or office faces the north in 2018, you should take care as to not slam the door as the Three Killings can be a lot more settled if the door is opened and shut calmly; this also applies to internal doors and definitely the case if the north of your home is a children’s bedroom or play room. The best cures for the north in 2018 are to place a six rod hollow metal wind chime along with a salt water cure and six Chinese i-ching coins in a row from the 4th February 2018 to the 4th February 2019. The 6 metal rod wind chime should be tapped often to make the chimes jingle and will not activate the three killings for 2018 as this is only a slight noise. You can also place a pair of Fu Dogs or a Ba Gua Mirror here if you have a door located here.
If you need to urgently carry out repairs to your home or office in the north, you should 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) – northwest (292.5º – 307.5º)
Like the Three Killings, Tai Sui does not like to be disturbed either. The effects of Tai Sui can be good or bad depending on the annual flying stars that coincide with its location and in 2018, we also have the visiting Kan 1 White Kan (Tang Lang) water star in the northwest which can cause problems for the middle son and it could affect ears, kidneys or blood related. If you have any poison arrows like lamp post, pylons or large comers of house’s pointing toward this area consider hanging a flat ba gua mirror outside pointing towards the offending object.
If your property or front door faces northwest in 2018, you must try to avoid the doors from slamming when entering or leaving your home or office as this will almost certainly disturb Tai Sui and cause problems for the members of the home or office. You should avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs in 2018 if possible. If you have an office or shop door in the northwest this year, I would strongly recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible and if you have children in your home, try to keep these doors from being slammed. Laura’s daughter has her bedroom located in the northwest although they are quite lucky as she is only two and a half years old and spends the majority of her time in the living room when she is playing. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui gold plated plaque for 2018 to pay respect and appease the Deity along with an Arowana fish sitting on bed of coins to enhance the annual #1 star. By paying respect to Grand Duke of Jupiter, we can weaken or avoid the problems that this can bring. This is really important this year and we have included the Jiang Wu Tai Sui plaque in all our annual cures and enhancers kits. In 2018, the ruling Tai Sui is great general Jiang Wu who is one of 60 heavenly generals. The Tai Sui plaque is plated in gold to represent wealth and was specially made for 2018, year of the Yang Earth Dog to be placed in the northwest. The slate plaquard stand is used to represent earth which creates a cycle of earth feeding Metal which in turn enhances the #1 annual water sta to enhance wealth in the northwest in the year of the Dog.
Sui Po (Year Breaker) – southeast (112.5º – 127.5º)
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2018 is in the southeast as we have Tai Sui located in the northwest for the year of the Yang Earth Dog. You should treat this area the same as any of the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities in the southeast this year. 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 Dog year, you would need to display a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure and Cai Leishui crystal talisman which we have included in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the southeast, place a 6 Metal rod wind chime between the buildings and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Feng Shui Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work or consult our Tong Shu date selection software.
The annual five yellow star – north (337.5 – 22.5)
The annual five yellow star has flown to the north in 2018 along with the Three Killings so it is vital that the north is looked after this year with the appropriate cures and enhancers. As we have the Annual #5 yellow enter the north in 2018, we have the inherent water energy of the north destroying the visiting energy of the #5 earth star which will weaken the influence of the annual #5 slightly although please do not leave this area untreated as there could still be problems such as sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth so it is vital that the north has as much protection as possible as we also have the Three Killings located here for 2018. It is highly recommended not to disturb the north of your home or business with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. When disturbed, the Five Yellow can bring disaster, sickness, lawsuit and major loss of wealth so please be very careful in the north in 2018 as it is very afflicted. You must place Six Chinese i-ching coins in a row , a six rod hollow metal wind chime and a salt water cure in the north to avoid the problems that are associated the #5 yellow disaster star in 2018.
Please do not start panicking if you have a bedroom or office that is located in the north, southeast or northwest in 2018, just start preparing to place your 2018 cures and enhancers kit as of the 4th February 2018 to ensure a trouble free year and also cleanse any old cures that you will be reusing this year, and of course make sure you sign up for our free newsletter so you are kept up to date with the monthly flying stars giving you even more control of your destiny. To give you even better control, use our advanced Feng Shui 2018 software as this gives advanced analysis of every home or office facing any direction in any part of the world.
Water placement in 2018:
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 2018:
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 2018 water outside in the southeast is good but please only do so if you know what your natal chart (flying star chart), are confident that you understand your land formations 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 2018:
If you have to use indoor water the best area is in the southeast as this activates the auspicious #8 star for 2018. Regardless though it is better to seek professional advice before placing any water feature inside or out as in Feng Shui it is the catalyst to good and bad so please take care and consult or use our software.
If you decide to use water inside your home or around the outside during 2018, it is vital that you make sure that you keep the water clean at all times and is flowing water as this is very different from using stagnant water. Do not let the water stagnate as this can cause Qi to become Yin energy which can stop positive Qi entering the home or office. Using water in Feng Shui is a very powerful tool and is the essence of Feng Shui (Shui meaning water). The Qi around the home or office is caught by the water and is then cleansed and distributed around the building provided the water is clean and flowing. If you look on our resource pages you will find more detailed information on water placement for 2018 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.
We receive thousands of emails every year with wonderful testimonials about the Salt water cure and how it has changed the energy in the home or office for the better and it is always wonderful to hear peoples words. The Salt Water Cure is an extremely powerful and little-known cure and one that we have used in our home, warehouse and office for over twenty years. We replace the Salt Water Cures at least once a year and sometimes they need to be replaced within a few months as they remove so much negative energy from the surrounding area. You should place the Salt Water Cure in the north and west of your home and office from the 4th February 2018. Please do not try to reuse the coins from last year’s cure as they should be replaced when setting up a new cure.
When dealing with the flying stars, there are many exceptions to be made; for example, If you have an annual #5 in a living room in an open plan house or an open office, the energy from the #5 yellow’s presence can drift in to another part of the home or office so it is always best to treat the negative areas rather than take an out of sight, out of mind approach. Think off the annual stars such as the #5 as perfume; if you sprayed some perfume in your bedroom, you will probably be able to smell it downstairs as the smell drifts around the building. If possible, it is always preferable to avoid rooms with negative stars although I would still recommend placing an implementing the necessary Cures and Enhancers for 2018.
How do I dispose of my old salt water cure?
A general rule of thumb where the Salt Water Cure is concerned is to replace it when the Annual Flying stars change so at least once a year. I personally change my cure when the salt forms a few mm below the rim of the glass as this is a sign that the cure is absorbing the negative energy around the area. Once your Salt Water Cure is placed, you should not move it until you decide to dispose of it as disturbing it could release the negative Qi that the cure accumulates. When you come to remove your Salt Water Cure, you should carefully place the whole thing (salt, water, glass and coins) in to a Tupperware type container or water tight plastic bag inside a cardboard box and dispose of it in a recycling bin straight away. If you do not have a Tupperware tub to dispose of the salt water cure, you can carefully pour the water down an outside drain although I do not like to recommend this and this is more of a last option scenario. Please do not try to recycle your salt water cure as it really is not worth the risk. We try to keep our salt water cures as cheap as possible so that they are available to the majority and all of the coins we use come from a good dynasty making them even more effective.
Annual Flying Stars for 2018, year of the Yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu)
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 Dog. 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 had a consultation with Master Michael in the past, he will be able to advise you accurately with regards to the Flying Stars for 2018 or if you have a copy of our Academy of Feng Shui software, this will calculate and explain all of your wealth, health, relationship and career areas are located as you could have two wealth areas at the least and up to five different areas in your home. Please take your time when reading through the report for the annual flying stars for 2018 as at first glance, it may appear that the year of the Dog will not be a prosperous year for your home or office and that there will be a lot of obstacles to work around although after reading all the way through the analysis you will find that there are many ways to control the negative influences and enhance the positive ones, making the most out of the year of the Dog. If you would like to know more about what the year of the Dog has in store for you on a more personal level, I would consider looking at the 2018 Feng Shui Guide Or our Feng Shui online report.
The southeast is a very auspicious area for wealth protection and enhancement during 2018 and if you placed a lottery ticket in the southeast in 2018, you will greatly increase your chances of inviting unexpected sums in to your life and winning the lottery. The lottery ticket in the image below has been created and personalised to 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 southeast or northwest 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 2018 resides in the northwest
Kan #1 is a water element. In the physical body it is the ear. Internal organ it is the kidneys and it is also blood. It also affects career and luck.
From the 4th February 2018, the annual #1 Kan (Tan Lang) water star has flown in to the northwest of every home and office all around the world. The northwest has inherent metal energy and there is a nice relationship between the two stars from a five elements point of view when metal meets water. The northwest is a lovely area for the eldest male of a home or business in 2018 although also fortunate for all males. The northwest is a wonderful area on the whole although we also have Tai Sui located here for the year and it is vital that this area is treated with peace and quiet along with the necessary Cures and Enhancers for 2018.
If your home or office has a front door in the northwest in 2018, it is very important that you do not slam the door as loud noises can activate the maleficent effects of Tai Sui. You must also aim to avoid any internal doors or windows being slammed in this area during 2018 and avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs; if you have no option but to undergo heavy work this year, please make sure that you follow the advice below and also have the relevant cures in place. The traditional method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui Plaque along with an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins to pay respect and appease the deity. By paying respect to Tai sui, you can avoid the problems that are prevalent with this annual affliction. These are two key cures for the northwest in 2018 although please do not worry if you cannot afford these; there are a lot of other options you can implement to weaken the troubles that Tai sui can bring.
Nearly every year, you will come across a sector in your home with a fortunate annual star which suffers from one of the annual afflictions although if you are careful and do not make too much noise in the northwest this year, you can still benefit from the lovely influence that the annual #1 can bring to the northwest in 2018. Once you have your Jiang Wu Tai Sui plaque in place, you can attract new wealth and protect existing wealth by placing an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins which can bring all of the positive energy from the visiting star.
This is a lovely area for 2018 and can bring in wealth, enhance relationships and career luck although please note that this area can affect the males of the household or office as the northwest is a Chien Trigram which can affect the male head of a family or home. If you have any poison arrows such as a busy road or power lines, you should place a Ba Gua mirror outside pointing towards the poison arrow; if you are unsure which mirror to use, a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror is the safest bet for the northwest this year.
If you activate certain areas of the home this year, it can bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and also romance and relationships as peach blossom is particularly good in 2018. The intensity of these attributes will differ in varying degrees according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars.
I would really recommend placing a Tai Sui plaque in the northwest during 2018 at the least as it is such a shame to have such a lovely area with the potential of Tai Sui ruining the positive influence in the northwest this year. As with every year, we include these standard in our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits as they really are a vital cure for protection. If you get your Tai Sui plaque from another store, please make sure that the plaque is relevant for the Yang Earth Dog year as there are 60 Different Tai Sui generals and each one is for a different year.
If you cannot afford to use the cures I have recommended or simply do not wish to use traditional cures, I would place some water colours in the way of bedding, pillows, lampshades, rugs etc such as blacks, greys and blues. If you have a bed in the northwest this year, I would place a brass Wu Lou talisman here to protect wealth.
You should avoid fire colours in the northwest this year as this will drain the energy of the annual #1 star. This is not a good area for candles in 2018.
If using furniture and decorations in the northwest this year to enhance the #1 star, you should place furniture with waves and ripples as this is a great water cure
Summary for the annual #1 star in the northwest in 2018:
The best months during 2018 are February, April, July, September and November.
Take extra care in the months of March, May, June and December and check back here to further analyse these months.
Enhancement summary and advice for the #1 visiting the northwest in 2018
- A brass Wu-Lou would be good for a bedroom that falls into the northwest along with blue, black, grey or charcoal colours. This is especially so if you are not in good health and if you cannot buy a wu lou place a heavy round object close to your bed but avoid candles or colours red, pink, purple or any fire colours.
- Place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui plaque in the northwest in 2018 to appease and pay respect to Tai Sui this year.
- Avoid candles or fire colours like red, pink, purple, orange or burgundy in the northwest in 2018, blues, blacks, grey or charcoal are good colours to use.
- Place a statue of an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins in the northwest to enhance and protect existing and new wealth.
- Metal objects are good to place in the NW in 2018.
- Clicking here will take you to our page of all of our cures and enhancers for the annual #1 star
- Naturally not as powerful but round metal shapes are an alternative to using Feng Shui items but avoid sharp or menacing looking metal objects.
Kun 2 Black In 2018, the Kun 2 Black visits the west
We have the annual #2 menacing star enter the west in 2018 and this makes the area temperamental and unstable although with the placement of some powerful cures and enhancers along with some select colour choices, we can weaken the effects and make the most of this area for the year. When the #2 earth star falls in to the west which is inherently the #7 metal star, both of these stars are actually harmonious with each other and although both are negative stars, we can use this to our advantage and weaken the negative influences of this area. If you have a bedroom, office, lounge or other room that is used a lot in the west in 2018 and you are not able to avoid this area, please read the advice below carefully.
If you have a bathroom, spare room, or storage space in the west of your home or office, this is very good news as this area will not have as much foot traffic or noise. The west of Michael and Jo’s home is home to their master bedroom and living room so I know that they will definitely have their cures and enhancers in place from the 4th February to avoid problems.
If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the west this will inevitably activate its malicious effects, so read on…
We have the #2 star visiting the west #7 palace and when we see 2 & 7 together the potential of fires is strong so please take the time to check all of your smoke alarms and do not take any risks with candles or open fires in this area in 2018, especially if you decide not to implement any of the recommendations I have suggested below.
This star will affect the health of those under its influence and can bring problems relating to wealth, illness, disease, stress, back stabbing and overall bad luck so please take this advice seriously and do not leave the west and see what happens this year. 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 eightmansions.htm or if you have our Academy of Feng Shui software you can calculate your Gua and best directions.
For the west in 2018, I would recommend placing a Guanshiyin Protection bell, salt water cure and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon. You should also place metal cures such as a Wu Lou, metal singing bowl and many more providing they are not menacing looking; a round, smooth metal shape is the best option to dissipate its negative influence in the west of your home or office in 2018. You should avoid pointy or sharp shapes in the west in 2018.
The Guanshiyin Protection bell is one of the most protective cures you can use and is a powerful cure for the #2 star in the west. If you are suffering from an illness you would place this beside your bed, for study, creativity and business place on your desk.
A statue of 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 2018. Make sure that you do not have any red coloured decorations in the west this year and avid burning candles here this year. Do not panic if you already have fire colours in the west already; you can negate this by introducing metal colours such as white, silver, gold, bronze or copper in the way of pillows, throws etc.
Any females who are expecting a first-born baby in 2018 or are trying for a baby this year should try to avoid this area if their bedroom is located in the west. If you are unable to avoid this, please make sure that you have the necessary cures in place along with metal colours. If you have our software, check the Min Gua section to find your best sleeping direction. A Metal Wu Lou beside your bed is a good cure if you have no option but to sleep in the west of your home this year as this gives elemental support to the west (metal) and also symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star. Because the west is associated with the youngest daughter of the home the youngest female member of the home or business can be affected so make sure if she sleeps, works or spends a lot of time here all cures are placed. Be very careful in June 2018 as the west is at its worst then.
Do not decorate your room with any fire colours this year such as reds, oranges, purples, burgundy, lilac or pinks as this will aggravate the #2 star. You should also avoid burning candles in the west this year.
The most important cures to place in 2018 in the west are the salt water cure and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon along with the Guanshiyin Protection bell and why they come standard in all our 2018 cures and enhancers kit.
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 would still be wise to place the recommended cures as detailed here but the effects of the #2 black will not be bad for you and can even give you positive results.
Summary for the annual #2 star in the west in 2018:
Do not activate this area with loud noises, keep quiet and avoid building work or refurbishment although it is not too bad. 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 white, silver, gold or copper.
Better months are January, May, August, October and December.
Take extra care in the months of February, April, June, July and September.

Chen 3 Jade In 2018, the sound of the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the northeast palace in 2018
The northeast is not a nice area in 2018 and it is important that you are aware that there is risk of possible thefts, arguments, disputes, loss of wealth, legal problems and hot tempers and this is especially the case if you have a main door or important room in the northeast in 2018. The youngest son in a family can be affected by this influence this year and if there is not a son, this is relevant to the male of the house so please take note and do not start panicking as with the cures and enhancers in place you will avoid many problems.
To remedy its effects, use red decorative objects, candles, lamps and lights. A nice simple cure is a red (fire colour) 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 not advised to place a water feature inside your home or office in the northeast in 2018 unless you have had a practitioner advise that it is ok to do so.
Some books or websites that you may have come across will tell you the #3 wood star can be a good star during period 8 (2004 – 2024) but in my 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 Feng Shui software. It will become more usable towards the later part of the 20-year period 8 cycle.
Over the years, I have come across books and websites recommending that you should place water where the annual #3 star is located for the year and I can tell you now, to do this can bring arguments, wealth issues, divorce and legal problems in to your life; unless you take your land formations, period, mountain and water stars in to account, please be very careful. I am not saying these people are wrong to recommend placing water; I am saying that you should have a good understanding of the Flying Stars in your home or office before using such a powerful enhancer on a known unbalanced star at this particular time in the twenty-year cycle.
It is important that you make sure that any documents that you sign during 2018 are thoroughly checked over before agreeing to anything as the energy that the annual #3 brings to the northeast in 2018 can denote arguments, disagreements and even lawsuits. Either case, there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during 2018 especially if you have a main door in the northeast and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. Please be careful during 2018 especially if you have a main door in the northeast 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 2018. The reason why it is very bad in 2018 is because when the #3 star flies into the northeast Ken palace which is an earth element, wood and earth are in conflict causing many problems.
For the northeast in 2018, it is important to place a Baohulu protection gourd. We had this gourd hand made for us and carefully placed together with red ribbon and six row rhombus signifying wealth and protection for the building and embossed with a symbol of wealth, luck and health protection against the annual #3 star.
Surely, I am over exaggerating the problem? not at all; My parent’s main door falls into the northeast and the last time we had the annual #3 star enter the northeast, they had a new gate put so we could all enter and leave through the south rear door. This proved to be very inconvenient for us but it was not worth taking any chances.
Another very powerful cure for the northeast this year is a Dragon Chasing Pearl tablet huo long ming zhu (fire dragon with treasures) which should be hung in the northeast of your home or office in 2018 to dissipate and remove the risk of legal problems, disputes and arguments, fraud and money loss this year.
Remedies and advice for the #3 visiting the northeast in 2018
- Place a light in the northeast If you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
- Do not hang wind chimes of any material in the northeast in 2018, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.
- Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2018 and check smoke alarms.
- Place a Baohulu protection gourd to suppress the negative influences of the annual #3 in the northeast this year
- Check through everything before signing documents if your office is in the northeast.
- Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well.
- Place a Dragon Chasing Pearl tablet in the northeast in 2018 for protection
Sun 4 Green In 2018, Sun 4 Green sits in the south of the Lo Shu square
In 2018, we have the Sun wood 4 enter the south palace which is a conditional star although in period 8 (2004 – 2024), it is an auspicious star. The #4 star governs romance, career, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. With the wood of the #4 star combined with the inherent #9 fire energy, this is a glowing relationship and we can expect a lovely synergy in the south with help from the advice below.
To enhance this wonderful influence, you must use a Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer in the south of your home or office during 2018 which is a very special peach blossom enhancer Talisman Shou charm and also an extremely powerful manifestation enhancer for the south this year.
This cure and enhancer when used is also a manifestation enhancer so it is good to place an image close to the crystals that represents everything you want to achieve in life, an example to some would be a picture of a beautiful home that you desire, a man or female that you admire, a car like a Ferrari or Mini, the number of children you would like, I think you are getting the picture by now, just create a dream board with all that you desire pinned to it or draw the image or you can even download some images from www.google.com this really is a very powerful way of manifesting your dreams and it really does work, remember to place the image by the sheng chi enhancer. This cure and enhancer is so important in 2018 and why it comes standard in all our 2018 cures and enhancers kit.
Although the annual #4 star is a very auspicious star, without cures, it can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the occupants of the building if the cures are not in place. Having a main door in the south of your home or office with the annual cures in place can bring in new opportunities and lots of chances to travel this year.
You should not use fire or metal colours in the south this year such as white, silver, chrome, gold, copper or bronze as this will destroy the lovely influence of the annual star. If you already have these colours in more permanent features such as a sofa or walls, just make sure you introduce some water colours such as blues, blacks and greys using items such as rugs, a floor mat, cushions, tablecloths etc.
As in every star, the 4 Green has a positive and negative aspect to its nature. Although a favourable annual star in 2018, it can also be affected by the presence of an unfavourable monthly star and when it does, it denotes betrayal, heartbreaks, scandals and humiliation in affairs of the heart. The affected months are April, May, June and September during 2018 so please take note of this in your calendar and check back on the monthly flying stars.
You should treat the south as your relationship and creativity area for 2018 as it can be very good for the occupants of a home and office. If the south is an important room such as an office, bedroom or lounge, you should try to keep this area as clean and clear as possible as this will really make a big difference. If you have a main door in the south in 2018, make sure that the door and furniture are kept clean throughout the year and do not keep shoes out in the hallway; investing in a shoe box can prove very beneficial this year for the south. I am looking forward to the #4 star as it visits my main office in 2018 which is great news for my type of business. Business’s likes jewellers, metal workers or similar must make sure they activate this area and keep it clear.
A beautiful and powerful cure for the south this year is the Taohua Mandarin ducks statue which is a very special talisman charm to enhance peach blossom, Peach blossom is so important this year as we have the south has the #4 romance, career, wealth and academic star which is why we have included the Taohua Mandarin ducks in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
Couples with a bedroom in the south can also enjoy good relationships in 2018 if the area is activated correctly with the right cures. There may also be a chance of producing intelligent children. If you want to enhance this further place a statue of Kwan Yin in the south.
If you are looking to produce a child this year, you should 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.
Summary for the annual #4 star in the south in 2018:
With the above cures and enhancers in place you should reap the rewards from 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, crystal, alternative, health industry.
Avoid fire element and colours red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue or black. The south really has a lovely influence in 2018 and I would really recommend placing the suggested cures and enhancers along with the colours although the best traditional cures you can place this year are the Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer and Taohua Mandarin ducks statue. If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here especially wind chimes from the 2018 cures. Spend time in the south if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
recommendations and cures for the #4 visiting the south in 2018
- Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
- Place a Taohua Mandarin ducks statue in the south of your home or office
- 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 much metal objects here especially large heavy ornaments.
- Place a Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer
- Fresh flowers or small pots of green leafy or flowering plants can be displayed in this spot of the house to lift the qi. Blue or green flowers are a good choice.
- If you have the Taohua mandarin Ducks, this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
- Place 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.
- For romance, a Dragon headed Tortoise is very good
The 5 Yellow In 2018, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy is located in the north palace
The north is heavily afflicted in 2018 as we have the annual #5 earth star visiting the north with the #1 inherent water energy and when this combination meets up, this can be very destructive and cause wealth losses and bad luck which is why special cures and enhancers are extremely important this year for the north. In 2018 we also have the Three Killings annual affliction enter the north which makes this area even more volatile unless you treat this are with peace and quiet along with some very powerful metal cures. I always try and deliver bad news with a positive approach as I am a strong believer that you can always turn bad in to good when you have the right attitude and while the north is extremely afflicted in 2018, you can still do a lot to weaken the malevolent influences that are present in the north this year. The last time the annual #5 visited the north in my home, which is the worst possible combination, I kept a positive attitude and began to plan early for the year ahead and got any big work that was needed completed before the annual #5 entered the north and placed all of my cures and enhancers and did not suffer from any of the problems that this combination can bring. Make sure you keep calm and plan early for the north in 2018 and you should be fine.
It’s essential you avoid making any form of deafening renovations or re-decorative work in the north part of your home or office between 4th February 2018 and 3rd February 2019. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes, build foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any loud equipment in the areas inside or outside your property or garden.
If you have no option but to perform work in the north, I would advise that you place a six hollow rod metal wind chime along with six Chinese I-Ching coins and a salt water cure in the north during 2018. This advice is important as it’s the worst of all the annual afflictions due to both the Three Killings and the Annual Five Star is located in the same area in 2018. We take this very seriously at the Feng Shui Store as we’ve seen some pretty nasty events over the past 37 years when this energy has been disturbed.
All of the advice I have given on this website over the last nineteen years has always come straight from the heart and I always try to write the same way I would when recommend something to a friend with every good intention and in 2018, it really is vital that you place the following items below in the north. If you can find these cures somewhere else, by all means go ahead but please make sure that you get them from a reputable store and that the coins are from a good dynasty as this really does make all of the difference and something we have always sworn by. Over the years, we could have purchased our I-Ching coins at a hugely discounted rate although if they are not made to the highest quality, they are really not worth using and this is why we have never offered low quality cures and enhancers at the Feng Shui Store.
For 2018, I would strongly suggest placing these Cures in the north of your home or office:
If you do not want to place these cures or cannot afford them, please do not panic as there is still a lot you can do to weaken the influence present in the north this year. Introduce plenty of good quality metal in to the north of your home or office this year and make sure any metal cures that you have from previous year are cleansed before the 4th February 2018. Good shapes are items made from metal that are round, even a stainless-steel dog bowl is a good cure. Do not 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 in the north in 2018.
The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen)‘ in Chinese, is one of the bad 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.
As we have so many negative afflictions in the north with the annual #5 yellow and the Three Killings in 2018, you must place a Salt water cure, Six rod hollow metal wind chime, Wu Lou and Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row and also place more metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative. Even a pendulum chiming clock in the north is very good and whilst this contradicts what I said about keeping the area quiet, the chiming sound of the clock is actually as important as the moving metal of the pendulum. In the old days, they would have had someone striking a gong quietly every 15 to 60 minutes. All these cures are essential and why we have included three of them as standard in all our 2018 cures and enhancers kit.
Another extremely imperative cure in 2018 and because the annual afflictions are so bad in the north, is to place a brass wu lou or gold coloured gourd in the north of your home or office to avoid severe problems. This cure really is one of the most protective cures you can use and also a powerful enhancer, for protection against legal problems, arguments, disputes and loss of wealth. An alternative cure is place some very heavy good quality round metal objects in the north in 2018, I do not give this advice so you have to buy from us, most of these cures and enhancers I recommend you can put together yourself.
Urgent repairs to your home or office in the north during 2018 will need a cure to prevent any negative consequences. You can place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the building and where the work is being carried out or ideally, contact a professional Feng Shui Consultant to select an auspicious date to start the work. Our Tong Shui software will also easily calculate the perfect time for you.
You MUST NEVER disturb the north inside or out by lots of drilling or knocking activities. So please be careful when you hang your metal six rod wind chime to control its influence in the north sector of your house.
You must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in the north as this will only cause harm and aggravate the #5 yellow. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.
If your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard is located here, this is good for you this year, because these areas are not used much and therefore the negative power is not activated, I would still place the cures though regardless of what room is located in the north.
Summary for the annual #5 star in the north in 2018:
Take extra care in the months of March, August, October and November.
Do not activate the north 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 six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Introduce metal colours such as white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the north of your home or office quiet, avoid redecoration and building work in 2018 in the north 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.
recommendations and cures for the #5 visiting the north in 2018
- Avoid playing loud music in the north of the home or room.
- 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 north of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
- The six coins in row and salt cure are a crucial cure to place in 2018, please do not forget it.
- Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the north corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
- Metal objects such as six Chinese metal coins tied in a red ribbon and/or a brass Dragon can be placed in this corner too. Do not to use red dragons.
- Do not place red objects, burning candles or triangular shaped furnishing in this sector.
- Most of all, avoid disturbing the north 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 north.
- Replace or at the very least cleanse your Ba Gua mirror in the north especially if you have a door here.
- If you have a main door in the north make sure you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut and oil squeaky hinges.
- If you use a fan or other machines that creates noise or vibration try and avoid placing it in the north part of a room, get yourself a good compass.
Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien (Wu Qu) sits in the southwest palace in 2018
The 6 white star is a compassionate money star and in 2018, it has flown in to the southwest which is very good for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone who is involved with jewellery and raw minerals. If you have a main door or important room such as an office or living room in the southwest this year, this is very good and you can benefit from this as this influence can bring success, fame and wealth luck when enhanced correctly in 2018.
Although the #6 white star signifies accomplishment, if you have the annual #6 star located in a bedroom, it can cause problems with the liver and/or legs and you would need to make sure you introduce some water colours such as bedsheets or curtains for the year.
A crucial cure for the southwest in 2018 is a Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman. This is an extremely powerful and much needed cure and enhancer in 2018 for when the #6 flies into the southwest and a special cure is needed as we have the inherent energy of the #2 earth sickness star which can drain the energy of the auspicious visiting star although overall, the southwest is a good area during the year of the Dog and when activated with the Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman, you can enhance and protect wealth luck in your home and office.
Summary for the annual #6 star in the southwest in 2018:
Take extra care in the months of February, April, September and November.
Overall 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 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.
recommendations and cures for the #6 visiting the southwest in 2018
- 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 Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman in the southwest of your home or office this year to enhance and protect wealth.
- Real quartz crystal is very good in the southwest for 2018 as is faceted crystal spheres.
- Avoid colours red and candles in the southwest in 2018
Tui 7 Red The Lofty Wind of Tui (Po Jun) flies into the east in 2018
The #7 mischievous red stars is a negative influence in period 8. The trigram Tui is also known as ‘Broken Soldier‘. This is a fighting star which cause problems if left alone. When combined with another untimely star, its negative nature denotes assault, deceit, violence and robbery. This year 2018 it falls into the wood element of the east Chen palace which places both stars in severe conflict and can cause many problems if left untreated.
The #7 Red indicates a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing especially in the months of February and August if not treated correctly this year.
If you have a main door or window in the east of your home or office in 2018, please make sure that you check the locks to make sure they are all functioning correctly and if necessary, upgrade the security in this area. Check over your smoke alarms in the east and make sure there are no fire hazards in this area for 2018. The Next step needed would be to place a Huaxianweiyi Sheng Chi Cure and Enhancer in the east of your home or office. This is a traditional and very powerful Feng Shui cure that works in a similar way to Chinese New Year couplets in the sense that they are used as a cure and enhancer for this unhealthy combination in the east in 2018, this combination is known as “puncture the heart sha” (穿心煞) and said to cause health problems with arms, legs and liver and also cause many legal issues, disputes, arguments and the possibility of robbery and theft in a home or business. This is one of the most important cures to place in 2018.
It is vital that the east is treated extremely carefully this year, which makes this Talisman a vital cure for this sector in the year of the Yang Earth Dog and why we have included it in all of our 2018 cures and enhancer kits.
If you have a main door in the east of your home or office in 2018, you should hang a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror outside for added protection in 2018.
I know that I mentioned this above but please remember to check over the security of your home this year, especially if you have a main door or window in the east of your home or office. Prevention is the best cure and it really pays to take a little time making sure all of the locks are strong and the windows are secure. Do not display any valuable items on windowsills as there is a risk of a passer-by seeing a quick opportunity.
It pays to be wise and avoid taking too many risks for there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses.
The best advice I can give for the east in 2018 is to check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors in the east.
Summary for the annual #7 star in the east in 2018:
Keep the east quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and quartz crystals. If you have an office or door in the east be careful of people trying to deceive you, robbery, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust.
Recommendations and cures for the #7 visiting the east in 2018
- You should also use more blue in your decoration. You can introduce the colour with cushions, rugs, bed covers or doormats.
- Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it.
- Avoid candles at all costs.
- Place a Huaxianweiyi Sheng Chi Cure and Enhancer in the east of your home or office in 2018 for protection
- Install or service/upgrade smoke alarms and security systems.
- Do not hang metal wind chimes here.
Ken 8 White has flown into the southeast for 2018
The #8 Ken white star is the most auspicious governing Flying Star for the next seven years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the Flying Stars (Xuan Kong) system and in 2018, the annual #8 is located in the southeast so if you have a main door, office, bedroom or any other important room that is used frequently in the southeast this year, this is great news for you and you should make the most of this lovely influence.
Unfortunately, this is somewhat spoilt as we have the annual affliction, Sui Po located here for the year and also the southeast is a wood element which puts the two elements in conflict with each other although I will advise you below on how you can make the most out of this influence in 2018. A lot of websites will tell you that the annual #8 will cause problems when these two elements meet in the same palace although in my opinion, we can make the southwest an auspicious area when treated correctly with certain cures and enhancers along with treating the area carefully so that Sui Po is not aggravated.
As with every new Solar year in Feng Shui, it is vital to place a very special Master cure and the most powerful and important cure and enhancer in 2018 is called a jiébàopínchuán Master cure and must only be used in a Yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu) year; this powerful amulet and protective talisman cure is used during Yang Earth Dog years to enhance the annual #8 wealth star. This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2018, especially for the eldest daughter or female of the home or office if a daughter is not present although equally needed for males especially for wealth. This is the most vital cure for the whole of any home or office which is why we have included it in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
If you have an office or main door in the southeast in 2018, wealth, fame, romance, prestige and distinction can be expected, even if you do not active it. This star brings good fortune and exciting times, even with the conflict of elements. It brings good fortune and exciting times even with the conflict of elements, although you should place cures here if the eldest daughter or youngest son of a home sleep or spend a lot of time in the southeast in 2018.
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2018 is the southeast. You should treat this area the same as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any loud activities. If disturbed, this area can and usually will cause immediate health problems especially with regards to the elderly, so please be very careful with the southeast of your home or office this year. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Dog year, you need to display a Cai Leishui crystal talisman and a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure which works to appease Sui Po and also enhance the annual #8 in 2018 which we have included in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers Kits.
If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are very good for this southeast 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.
Whilst wealth is forecasted in 2018 for the southeast, beware of overworking as this can cause you health problems. The additional work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular, stress related resulting in high blood pressure or kidney problems.
Another crucial cure for the southeast in 2018 is the Cai Leishui Crystal talisman. This cure and enhancer talisman is an excellent enhancer for wealth in 2018 and should be placed in the southeast, which in 2018 can bring in good luck and supposedly eight different types of blessings. This beautiful glass crystal teardrop is of the highest quality and produces amazing results as well as creating the most amazing display of rainbows if placed near a sunny window.
Do not place heavy metal in the southeast this year, as it will weaken the good earth.
This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area for 2018 so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc in the southeast. If you use symbolic cures this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth or a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.
Summary for the annual #8 star in the southeast in 2018:
Take extra care with health in the months of March, April and November.
recommendations and cures for the #8 visiting the southeast in 2018
- Hang a Cai Leishui Crystal talisman in the southeast of your home or office for 2018
- Keep the southeast of your home or office quiet during 2018 and do not break ground unless necessary
- Place a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure for wealth protection in the southeast in 2018

- If your bedroom is here, you can also place an amethyst or any crystal items in the southeast of the bedroom to further strengthen the earth element of the benevolent 8.

Li 9 Purple You Bi Li 9 Purple is found in the centre in 2018
The annual #9 purple (You Bi) has flown in to the centre place for 2018 which can cause mixed results and can bring both fortunate and unfortunate results when left untreated during the year of the Dog. The central palace has a tendency to resonate throughout the other 8 palaces so it is important that this area is treated with the appropriate cures and recommendations below.
There will be a lot of websites who will be predicting doom and gloom in 2018 and I personally think there is a lot that can be done to avoid the potential problems so please do not start panicking. The central palace is very influential and why cures and enhancers must be placed in the cardinal and inter-cardinal compass sectors.
To enhance the positive energies of the centre of your home or office in 2018, you should place a Fu shi jian earth globe for wealth and success for wealth protection and overall luck. If you cannot place in the centre place it in the southeast and twirl clockwise once a day. For business place a Dragon beside it looking onto the globe for protection for your business and point the Dragon face towards the part of the world that you live in so if you live in the UK you point it towards the UK but try and angle the Dragon so he faces a wide area like Europe as an example.
Another imperative cure for the centre for 2018 is a Wealth and romance charm. This beautiful Charm is all of the wealth and protection enhancers you can think off in one powerful charm enhancer. The representation of a double Carp is said to increase wealth and good luck and must be placed in the and said to enhance romance and relationship luck and often used to patch-up current relationships and as the centre has an auspicious #9 purple star in 2018 this is a perfect romance enhancer as they are symbols of ambition, persistence and bounty.
The element of the annual #9 star can strengthen the malevolent effects of visiting monthly stars #2 and #5.
Summary for the annual #9 star in the centre in 2018:
Be aware of the negative influences during the February, May and December.
recommendations and cures for the #9 visiting the centre in 2018
- Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.
- Place Fu shi jian earth globe for wealth and success in the centre of your home and office and remember to spin it regularly
- Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.
- Place a Wealth and romance charm in the centre of your home or office for 2018
- Symbolic objects such as a wu lou or eight Chinese coins can be placed here all year round to enhance benevolent influence and at the same time dissipate the malevolent influence by the visiting monthly #2 and #5.
