I started writing the 2021 Flying Star analysis during the UK lockdown in May 2020 as I knew that with everything going on in the world, 2021 would be an extremely important year to get right and it must be looked at as a recovery year. Normally, I start this article hoping that the previous year has been a good one for you although this year, I hope that you have stayed safe, healthy and made the most of your year; however you can.

This article is a long read and can be a bit overwhelming at first, but please take your time going through as the year of the Ox will likely come with its challenges. By reading this, you can avoid a lot of problems during 2021 and enhance all aspects of your life by treating the annual Flying stars for your home or business this year.

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

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

2021 Feng Shui Flying star chart annual 3

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

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

For over 21 years at the Feng Shui Store, we have sold a huge range of powerful and traditional cures and enhancers for your home or office to help you make the most of the year; we also appreciate that not everyone can afford or like to display these powerful cures and enhancers, which is why we will always offer a free or cheap solution that you can implement with items that you already have in your homes such as different furniture or coloured pillows.

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

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

2021 Chinese animal predictions

From all of us at the Feng Shui Store, we would like to wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous year of the Yin Metal Ox (Xin Chou).

What date do the Flying stars change in 2021?

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

Every year, we make predictions for the year ahead, and in 2020 we forecasted 90% accuracy but didn’t see the Covid19 though. However, our financial predications were 100% accurate and based on our predictions for last year and the feedback from our clients; the majority were able to enjoy a productive and rewarding year of the Rat in 2020 which came as a great surprise to many considering the awful year the world had.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am not a fan of predicting doom and gloom as I am a firm believer in the power of the mind and being told something terrible is going to happen can manifest itself without much effort, so now let’s look at the positive aspects of 2021.

I am sure you have read other Feng Shui websites and read their outline for 2021, you will find that most are predicting an awful year and while some of this is true, I am personally really excited about 2021 as there will be a lot of good to come out of it with the energies present this year and we also have many new and exciting annual Feng Shui cures and enhancers to place this year and will be glad to see the back of 2020.

We have carried out thousands of Feng Shui consultations from every corner of the world since we first opened the Feng Shui Store back in 1999 and I have found that every single home is different with its positive and negative attributes; no two buildings will ever be the same and will always be prone to change so if you feel worried that you have a negative star in an important room this year, just remember that nothing is stagnant in Feng Shui and luck is continually moving around to help you make the most of your circumstances and improve the quality of Qi in your home or office.

As an example, let’s take a look at a home that has a bedroom in the southwest and an office in the southeast and how the annual stars could have an impact on their lives in 2021 if not treated correctly. The problems with this room arrangement could be related to finances, bad luck, complicated relationships, stomach issues and also sadness, especially with the eldest daughter or eldest female (Matriarch).

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

2021 Feng Shui predictions for the GoatThose born in the year of the Sheep/Goat could be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Ox as the Sheep/Goat is the conflict animal of the Ox. Those born in the year of the Sheep/Goat should be aware of potential difficulties they may encounter during the year and take extra care in whatever they do without taking unnecessary risks in all aspects of their life.

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

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

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

All of the cures and enhancers I have mentioned are from our 2021 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.

2021 Feng Shui cures and enhancers

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

Salt water cure 2021

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gold coloured Tsai Shen Yeh

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

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

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

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

The best thing you can do when preparing for the year of the Ox is to make sure that you prepare early. We receive thousands of phone calls and emails during the week before Chinese New Year asking if we can ship the cures and enhancers kit over to Australia in 3 days and sadly, this is not possible; we get inundated with orders during the final two weeks before Chinese New Year so please be sure to plan early to ensure your 2021 Cures and Enhancers are in place on 3rd  February 2021 to give yourself the best start to the year.

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

Chinese animal predictions

Every year, I write about how you can plan for the Chinese New Year and 2021, year of the Ox, I would start by reading through the 2021 Annual Flying Stars and then take a look at the 2021 Chinese Animal Predictions. After reading through these two documents, I would recommend taking a look at our 2021 Tong Shu Almanac and Chinese Animal Book or maybe consider our Feng Shui report which gives you completely personalised details.

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

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.

2021 Feng Shui cures and enhancers

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

Two products that I would strongly recommend for the year of the Ox are the 2021 Annual cures and enhancers kit along with our Feng Shui software as this will provide you with the necessary tools to make 2021 a successful year.

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

When I meet someone new, and they ask me what I do for a living, they will imagine my home has large waving cats, and enormous eight-foot Fu dog’s outside my front door and Chinese scrolls in every room and while I do have a small waving cat that my niece loves to watch, my home is not how most people imagine, and the Feng Shui items we use are not that obvious at all.

I will always have my cures and enhancers on display although most people would expect a home to look like a Chinese restaurant when they imagine a home that has been set up with Feng Shui in mind. Over my years as a Feng Shui consultant, I have visited many Chinese Restaurants, and you would be amazed how much rearranging needs to be done as they will usually have as much red in the shop front to give the traditional Chinese theme.

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

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

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

Metal Feng Shui element

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

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

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

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

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

The Wu Wang Bu Li master cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2021 and as this falls into the west, it will affect the youngest female and all females in general in the home or office and will be needed especially for wealth in 2021. The Master cure is also very important for males this year. If you want overall protection for the whole of your home or office, I would recommend taking a look at our 2021 Cures and Enhancers kit.

Whenever we write the annual advice, we do not do this 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. Although this is terrible business practice 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.

HOW TO FIND THE 2021 COMPASS SECTORS WITHIN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE

How to take a compass reading

When working out the different compass sectors of your home, the first thing you will need is a floor plan; the best option is to contact your estate agent or architect for the original plan although you can get phone Apps these days to calculate and map out the plan of your home or office. If you have our Feng Shui Software, you can do your floor plan within the software which makes it very easy. Once you have your floor plan, you will need to split the home into nine equal sectors similar to a tic tac toe grid.

You will need a good quality compass to find your compass direction. If you do not know how to take a compass facing direction, please visit this page.

Once you’ve taken the compass readings of your building, you will have a good idea of the different compass sectors of your home or office. You will be able to overlay the Lo Shu for 2021 according to the eight magnetic directions and centre to plan how to make the most of your life for the year ahead. If you already know the fixed flying stars, you can check how the annual stars will affect the fixed stars.

If you look at the floor plan below, you will see that the 5 star falls into the southeast area for this home which falls into the master bedroom and for most of us, this will likely fall into a bedroom, kitchen, study or living room and could cause problems if you do not place any cures and enhancers. 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.

floor plans 20192021 Flying star chart

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 the 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 2021 Annual flying star.

If you take a look at the chart below, you can see where the different annual Flying stars are located along with the mountain and facing fixed stars and was created using our Academy of Feng Shui software which has become the industry standard with enthusiasts and masters alike.

The Flying star chart in the home below has an exceptional formation which is known as a “Combination of ten with sitting” and requires careful analysis; the Academy software explains in great detail how to make the most of this combination and also any other special combination or formation in the Flying star chart.

The chart below is for a house facing 250 degrees west 1 (Geng) built in 1980 

2021 Feng Shui flying star chart

A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.”

Avoiding bad luck in 2021

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

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

For full details on 2021 flying star analysis follow this link. This is very important in 2021 especially if you have the main door, bedroom, office, lounge or other important room in the southwest, southeast or North.

This is just a small part of what you can do to ensure 2021 will be a good year and to enhance it further 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 specific tasks, it will also advise if it is suitable 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 2021 advanced Feng Shui software; it is used by thousands of Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners and students throughout the world.

The Three Killings – east (67.5 – 127.5)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yang Xin Tai Sui gold plated plaque 2021Like the Three Killings, Tai Sui does not like to be disturbed either. The effects of Tai Sui can be good or bad depending on the annual flying stars that coincide with its location.

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

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

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

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

Traditionally to appease this very nasty energy, you should introduce some fire colours along with a pair of Bi You Pi Yao statues in the southwest, facing towards the northeast which we have included in all of our 2021 Cures and Enhancers Kits.

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

Feng Shui annual 5 yellow star 2021As of the 3rd of February 2021, we have the annual five yellow star fly into the southeast of every home, office and building for the year. When activated with noise or regular traffic, this inauspicious influence can bring disaster, illness, lawsuits and significant financial issues, making this a crucial area to treat carefully during the year of the Ox.

It is highly recommended that you keep the southeast calm and settled as often as possible during 2021 in order to avoid activating this area and avoid any building work or noisy activities. To control and weaken the influence of the annual five star, place a set of six Chinese i-ching coins tied with red ribbon, a six-rod hollow metal wind chime and a salt water cure in the southeast to avoid the problems that are associated with the #5 yellow disaster star.

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

Please do not panic if the southeast, east, southwest or northeast of your home or workplace has a bedroom, office, living room or other regularly used room in one of these areas; just start preparing to place your 2021 cures and enhancers kit as of the 3rd February 2021 to ensure a trouble-free year and also cleanse any old cures that you will be reusing this year. To give you even better control, use our advanced Feng Shui 2021 software as this provides a sophisticated analysis of every home or office facing any direction in any part of the world.

Water placement in 2021:

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

Outside water placement in 2021:

Feng Shui water placement in 2021

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

If you are not sure of 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 2021:

If you have to use indoor water in 2021, the best area is in the west as this will help to activate the auspicious #8 star for the year of the Ox. Regardless though, it is better to seek professional advice before placing any water feature inside or out as in Feng Shui it is the catalyst to good and bad so please take care and consult or use our software.

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

Whilst the use of water is considered safe in the right conditions, there are many exceptions to the placement of water, and as Master Practitioners and teachers we use many more methods of water placement for wealth, education and relationship, these methods whilst extremely powerful can only be used with expert guidance and a full analysis of your property and land formations, please visit this link for more details of a consultation or home/business visit.

Salt water cure after just 4 weeks.

Salt water cure

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Please take your time when reading through the analysis below for the annual flying stars for 2021. When you first read the advice below, it may seem as though this year will bring lots of problems although you will soon realise that there are many ways to control the negative influences and enhance the positive ones, making the most out of the year of the Ox. If you would like to know more about what the year of the Ox has in store for you on a more personal level, I would consider looking at the 2021 Feng Shui Guide or our Feng Shui online report.

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

The lottery ticket in the image below has been created and personalised to an individual’s unique lottery numbers with our Feng Shui software and taken from their birth date and just by placing it in the northwest or southeast 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 2021, Kan trigram is in the south

Flying Stars 2021 1 Star Kan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • If you have a bedroom in the south, I would place a brass Wu Lou next to your bed and also introduce a blue, black, grey or charcoal duvet cover, throw or pillows.
  • If you cannot afford to purchase a wu lou, you should place a heavy round object close to your bed; a quick, easy cure is to place a good quality frying pan under your bed for the year.

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

Flying Stars 2021 2 Star Kun

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

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

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

What rooms are least affected by the 5 star in 2021The ideal area for the North to fall into in your home or office in 2021 would be in a bathroom, spare room or storage space as these rooms are used less than a bedroom or kitchen and would be less likely to activate from noise. If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the North, this will inevitably trigger its negative effects.

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

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

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

Another powerful cure for the north in 2021 is to place a statue of Tsai Shen Yeh in gold colour. The God of wealth statue is very good at weakening the bad earth and also protects wealth for 2020, making this a very powerful cure.

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

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

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

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

Now having given you all this bad news, I will now give some hope for those who are Gua 2, 6, 7 or 8 as while this combination, on the whole, is very bad, it can be good for them in wealth and career, you would still be wise to place the recommended cures as detailed here but the effects of the #2 black will not be bad for you and can even give you positive results.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chen 3 Jade, the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the southwest in 2021

Flying Stars 2021 3 Star Chen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sun 4 Green In 2021, Sun 4 Green sits in the east of the Lo Shu square

Flying Stars 2021 4 Star Sun

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

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

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

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

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

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

feng shui metal colours

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

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

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

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

Eating peanuts on Chinese New Year

Another powerful cure that you can place to help you conceive a child during 2021 is a bunch of peanuts in shells (monkey nuts or groundnuts) or any seed products such as black or red melon seeds (Gua Zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’, and for the Chinese, this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means ‘the birth of many children’.

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

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

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

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

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

If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. You should try to avoid using metal items here, especially wind chimes from the 2021 cures and enhancers kit. You should try to spend time in the east this year if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.

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

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

The 5 Yellow In 2021 – The annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy is located in the southeast palace.

Bad Flying Stars

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

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

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

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

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

Where to avoid loud work in 2021 Feng ShuiIf the southeast of your home or office falls into a bedroom, office or other important room such as a living room, it is very important that this area is treated similarly to the steps above as human interaction will make this area very more likely to be activated. If you have a main door in the southeast, please make sure that you follow the advice for this year and ensure that the door is not slammed shut as this will activate the harmful effects of the annual #5. Peace, along with strong metal cures, will help avoid the effects of this star.

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

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

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

Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row

Tsai Shen Yeh wealth God

Salt water cure

Six rod hollow metal wind chime

6 Rod hollow metal wind chime

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

Good shapes are items made from metal that are round. Please make sure that you don’t disturb the southeast with any noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with gardens to this corner of the property should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work in the southeast.

Feng Shui pendulum clock

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

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

feng shui metal colours

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

Do not worry if you have these colours already and cannot remove them, introduce some metal colours into the southeast such as white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.

If your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard is located here, this is good for you this year, because these areas are not used much, and therefore the negative power is not activated, I would still place the cures though regardless of what room is located in the southeast.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ch’ien 6 White – The star of Heaven Chien 6 White (Wu Qu) sits in the centre palace in 2021.

Flying Stars 2021 6 Star Chien

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

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

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

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

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

Click here to view our range of cures and enhancers for the #6 star in the centre for 2021

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

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

recommendations and cures for the #6 visiting the centre in 2021

  • If this is your bedroom, a shade of blue or black in your furnishing or décor may help with health. A blue painting (not water scene) may also do.
  • Hang a Da Zhan Hong Tu Sheng Chi cure in the centre of your home or office this year to enhance and protect wealth.
  • Real quartz crystal is very good in the centre as are faceted crystal spheres.
  • Avoid fire colours such as red and please do not light candles in the centre in 2021 unless the monthly stars allow so as it can cause lung issues.

Tui 7 Red – The Lofty Wind of Tui (Po Jun) flies into the northwest in 2021

Flying Stars 2021 7 Star Tui

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

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

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

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

safety and security predictions for 2021

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

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

Smoke alarms and Feng Shui

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

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

Click here to view our range of cures and enhancers for the #7 star in the northwest for 2021

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

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

If you have an office or door in the northwest, please be careful of people trying to deceive you, robbery, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust.

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

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

Ken 8 White has flown into the west for 2021

Flying Stars 2021 8 Star Gen

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

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

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

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

What direction door is good feng shui in 2021

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

Another essential cure and enhancer for the annual #8 star is to place a Lung Feng Fu Dragon & Phoenix to enhance the annual #8 wealth star in 2021 and ensure wealth and career are protected and enhanced throughout the year of the Ox. We have included the Dragon and Phoenix statue as standard in all our 2021 Deluxe Cures and Enhancers kits this year.

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

Feng Shui work balance in 2021

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

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

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

recommendations and cures for the #8 visiting the west in 2021

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

Li 9 Purple You Bi Li 9 Purple is found in the northeast in 2021

Flying Stars 2021 9 Star Li

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

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

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

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

The #9 Purple is the star of future wealth and has an auspicious influence in Period 8. Career opportunities and promotions are possible, and this is especially the case if you have an office or main door in the northeast in 2021. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.

This is a good area, in general, this year and especially for those who are involved in studies in 2021. If this is a family area (living, dining or a library), you should try to encourage children to study here.

Couples with a bedroom in this location can look forward to good relationships this year, and there may also be a chance of producing intelligent children. If you want to enhance this further, you should place a statue of Kwan Yin in the northeast part of your bedroom.

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

Click here to view our range of cures and enhancers for the #9 star in the northeast for 2021

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

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

recommendations and cures for the #9 visiting the northeast in 2021

  • Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.
  • Place a Yang Xin Tai Sui plaque talisman in the northeast of your home and office
  • Place a San Bao trinity enhancer in the northeast of your home and office
  • Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.
  • Symbolic objects such as a wu lou or eight Chinese coins can be placed here all year round to enhance benevolent influence and at the same time dissipate the malevolent influence by the visiting monthly #2 and #5.

150 thoughts on “2021 Flying star Xuan Kong annual analysis for the year of the Ox Xin Chou

  1. hi,
    West – number 8 happen to be my kitchen, exactly where my stove located. should i continue to put a water feature here?
    any other replacement?

    number 9 is my main entrance, should i put a plant in the front door?

    1. Hi Danston,

      I do not like to advise on using water features unless a full analysis has been done on the home although if you are happy to place the water feature in your kitchen, it will be fine if the stove is also in the same sector.

      A large potted plant will work well by your front door for the year. Please remember to avoid slamming the door this year as we have Tai Sui located in the northeast.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi! I’m Gua #3 which mean the direction of west is not auspicious. But since this is the #8 flying star this year, Is it still okay to put a water feature here?

        1. Hi Regina,

          I would not recommend placing a water feature here as this is your most inauspicious direction and the issues could outweigh the benefits.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  2. Can you, please, tell me what colours are good for west wall in office? I’m not sure that I understood it well… Is green good for west wall? Thank you. 🙂

    1. Hi sonya,

      Good colours for the west of your office are earth colours such as brown, terracotta, beige or yellow.

      I hope this helps 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you wery much, your advice helped me. I’m also reading comments from february and if I understood well, best place for keeping money, cards,etc is on the east this year?

        1. Hi Sonya,

          No problem at all 🙂

          I’d recommend keeping money etc in the west for the year to enhance the annual #8.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  3. Hi,
    Hope you are doing well. I am planning to have a glass block window replaced on the east side and sector of my building. I am worried that the noise may activate the Three Killings. The window is in a bathroom in an apartment
    that is empty at the moment. Would that lessen the negative effects? I think the workman only needs a hammer to break out the old window. Is there a good month to do the repair? I don’t think I can put a cure there while the work is being done. I’m also worried because my apartment is above that empty unit. Thank you so much for all the wonderful advice you give every year.

    1. Hi Patti,

      This should be fine to do the work as there shouldn’t be excessive noise from this. It’s an added bonus that the apartment will be empty 🙂

      If you can get the work done in April after the 4th, we have the monthly #1 star here which will help.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  4. Hi Daniel

    My house is facing West 2 (W2) period 8 and my main entrance is situated at NW sector. When will it be a good month to start renovation the car pouch and balcony as its probably will take 2-3months to complete. Looking forward for your advise, thank you.

    1. Hi Melissa,

      This is not the best year to carry out work in the northwest as we have the annual #7 located here although if this cannot be avoided, I would start the work in July as we will have auspicious monthly stars fly in here for the next three months.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        Thank you so much for your advise. I mistakenly miss out my driveway gate is facing West and the renovation is car pouch which is located at the driveway and balcony is facing West too. If the renovation is unavoidable and needs to start in May/June 2021, will it cause any harm. Any remedies to cure the harm?

        1. Hi,

          If you can get the work done in the west in May, that will be good as we will have the monthly #4 there for the month.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  5. we having 2 holes on the drywalls (5-6 inches diameter) & planning to have someone coming to patch those up. One on the southwest area and one on the wall between southwest and south . is it safe to do it now or should be waited? i think the job can be done in couple hours

    1. Hi ML.

      Jobs like this do not usually create much noise and will be fine to do. If they are able to use hand tools, this will be great although I would think they would just use hand tools for drywall anyway.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. I hope they do use hand tool although they need to cut out the area to clean up. As you mention above that we shouldn’t cut through the wall and that actually concerning me. With the sizes of the holes I do hope no power tool (saw) needed
        Thank you so much for your advice

        1. Hi ML,

          I would ask them to use a drywall saw beforehand as this would not add much time to the job; you can make an excuse that you have dust allergies if you don’t want to say it is due to Feng Shui.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  6. I have a question about placing a salt cure in the southeast sector. I have two bedrooms, bedroom A in the southeast corner of my apartment and bedroom B next to it in the southeast/south sector. I am not able to put the salt cure in bedroom A so I placed the cure in the southeast corner of bedroom B, which is my room. Will the salt cure work there? My building faces north.

    Thank you so much for all the valuable information you provide each year. Your predictions are always spot on!

    1. Hi pat,

      The salt cure should be fine in bedroom B as long as it is placed in any part of the southeast sector.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you so much. Is it ok to put a wind chime in bedroom B? I put heavy dumbbell weights there but I wonder if a chime is more effective. It would be in the SE corner of that room.

        1. Hi Pat,

          That will be fine to place the wind chime in the bedroom.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  7. Hi Daniel,

    Trust all is well.

    1) I went to place the red money frog in the NE bagua of my house but I realized I have the bixi dragon headed tortoise in the NE bagua. I have a second floor but the NE bagua is in the laundry room for that floor. Can cures and enhancers be placed there? Should I place the red money frog in the NE bagua of my main floor and move the bixi to a different sector that you recommend? Any suggestions on where to place both will be much appreciated.

    2)I purchased the professional feng shui software from your website. It’s very nice. Now that I know where each bagua of my house is located on the floor planner, I’m wondering if each space has its own compass directions too? For example my bedroom is half W and SW bagua areas on the floor planner and when I’m standing in the middle of my room the room has different compass directions. For example my bed headboard is in the NE sector. Can I apply NE cures/ enhancers there or I should only focus on applying W and SW cures/ enhancers anywhere in the room since it sits in the W and SW baguas based on the floor planner? I hope I’m clear with my questions.

    Thanks so much. Wishing you all the best.

    1. Hi Grace,

      You can place both cures on the one floor as this would not cause an issue having them in the same area. If you want to place one in your laundry room, try to place it somewhere away from the sink or any mess.

      For your bedroom, you would place the west cures on one side and the southwest cures on the other. If your headboard is only partly in the northeast, I would place the northeast cures in another room.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  8. Hi Daniel,

    I noticed several of the sectors state not to put crystals or candles. My challenge is that I absolutely love crystals and have a fairly large collection of them placed throughout my home. These are mostly palm sized crystals with a few pieces that are about 6 inches tall. No cathedrals. I also have some crystal grids that are framed and would be a shame not to display. Do I absolutely have to hide my crystals? I have all types like quartz, agates, obsidian, tourmaline, selenite, Celestite, amethyst, citrine, pyrite, jaspers, shungite, etc. I would say there probably are only a few varieties that I don’t own. I read that I should avoid crystals in the north which is where my bed is located. I can’t move it. So I tried moving my crystals to the northeast but I just don’t feel balanced without my crystals by my bedside. What do you recommend? I’m a metal rooster and my husband is an Earth sheep. I’ve placed brass wu-lous on each side of the bed. And for the candles, is it really true that I can’t light candles in the north and northwest? These are the two areas where it is physically safest to light them in my home. Lastly, I understand that the most auspicious location is in the center of the house but that happens to be my open kitchen and more specifically, my stove which gets quite a lot of use. Does this mean we are burning the good luck? What should I do to amplify the benefits? I feel like every sector is bad this year or that we are just stuck in the bad positions. I’ve set up the annual cures already. But I also have renovation going on. It just seems like we are doomed. Our renovation started last year and unfortunately got delayed. It should’ve been done last year but with COVID, many supplies were out of stock. Apparently many people feel this is prime time for home improvement, myself included. But the end of 2020 came with a slew of misfortune which lead me to your website in hopes of changing the luck. I’m not sure what to do as it seems our home and lifestyle doesn’t quite accommodate the current restrictions for the cures and advice.

    1. Hi,

      With Feng Shui, you need to get a good balance between what is best for the Feng Shui and what works best for you. If you really enjoy having crystals in your home and do not feel comfortable without them in place, I would leave them where they are and keep track of any changes, good or bad, that you notice and make adjustments to see if removing the crystals helps.

      I would avoid lighting candles in the north and northeast if you can unless it is recommended in the monthly Flying star analysis. Lighting candles in the north would strengthen the energy of the annual #2 star.

      That is not a problem having the stove in the centre as long as you have earth cures in place to balance this.

      With renovating, I would keep the noise as low as you can and check the monthly analysis on how to make the most of the influence each month when you are carrying out work.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. Dear Daniel,

    Happy Lunar New Year!!!

    I am female, water rabbit with gua 5/8.

    Thank you for always providing this useful info. My bathroom is in the West sector and bedroom is northwest. I’ve placed ocher colors in the bathroom and blues in the bedroom. Will these surffice has curves? At the start of February, I began having strong headache pressure near the farthest nw section of my bedroom. They have ceased since I added blues to that corner.
    Also, my desk faces nw which places my back to the east. Can I place a mirror that faces out to the east?

    Thank you for any guidance you can provide.

    A Brown

    1. Hi A,

      Happy New Year to you, too!

      I would place the ochre colours in the west for the year and the water colours in the northwest as this will help to weaken the annual #7 and enhance the annual #8 stars.

      If your desk is facing the northwest, this should place your back to the southeast which will be fine in 2021. If this is facing the east, I would not recommend using a mirror and would instead try to get up and walk around every 1-2 hours for a minute or two.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  10. Hi Daniel,

    I have been using the ”chinese compass” app on my phone to check the annual flying star directions (so far , so good I can move things around every year) but this year, both my kitchen and extension conservatory is in SE where my washing machine and tumble dryer , I always use them everyday and I cannot move them in any part of the house. Will the noise from washing machine and tumble dryer disturb the visiting star?
    I have already placed my cures (salt water and six coins) will it be enough?

    Best Regards and Many Thanks.

    1. Hi Pinky,

      Depending on how old your appliances are, this should be ok if you have the annual cures in place. If they are quite old and noisy, you can always introduce some extra metal colours and elements to be on the safe side.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  11. Dear Daniel
    TQ for your yearly guidance for us to live a better quality life. I have a question which I hope you can advise me on. I have 2 salt lamps but I am not sure where I can place it.
    You did mention that there is not many places to keep those. If I should not use it in the OX year, what can I do with the lamps? Please advise. TQ

    1. Hi Sally,

      The best place for salt lamps would be in the southeast in 2021 to weaken the annual #3 star.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        Trust all is well.

        1) Where should I place my red money frog this year? Currently it’s in the West sector.

        2) I have a very big money plant tree and currently it’s in the West sector and it looks good there. Is it okay to keep it there or move it somewhere else? I’m aware NE and East are good sectors for plants this year.

        3) I’m kua number 1 and SE is my wealth direction. Do I need to place my wealth vase in a different sector because SE has a negative star this year?

        Thanks so much. Much appreciated.

        1. Hi Grace,

          I’m very well, thank you; I hope you are keeping safe and healthy.

          The red Three legged Toad can be placed in the northeast or southwest this year.

          The money tree would be well placed in the east this year rather than the west as this would destroy the good earth star in the west.

          If your wealth vase has metal colours and elements, this can stay in the southeast for the year.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  12. Hi Daniel,

    What are the best directions to face for prosperity and good fortune in 2021? I’m an ox and gua number is 9.

    Thank you. Blessings.

    Erin

  13. Hi Daniel,

    I read the Flying Stars Analysis and was confused about what colors and elements should and should not be displayed in the Northeast. Specifically, I have an office there which is very important because it’s my home business office and it has mostly reds and golds. I also have the Annual cures and enhancer for 2021 as well as other enhancers properly placed for the Northeast in 2021. Do I need to add or take away colors or elements? Thanks for your advice.

    Also, for the west, what colors should/should not be displayed? I have prominent red there as well.

    Thank you for your help.
    Erin

    1. Hi Erin,

      For the northeast, if you have the annual cures in place and have red colours, this will be fine. The gold will slightly drain energy from the annual star although I would not worry as you should have a good balance with reds here also.

      For the west, I would recommend introducing earth colours such as brown, terracotta, beige or yellow for the year.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  14. Hi Daniel,

    I’m bought the Bi you Pi Yao’s. I’m confused with the placement. It’s mentioned to place the pi yao with the golden horn on the right hand side but the picture looks on the left. Is the right hand side as I look at it or my back to it is the right hand side?

    Many thanks

  15. Hi Jo, Daniel

    Trust all is well.

    1) I have my Kitchen in the West (annual #8) and so there are lots of pots and pans (metal) and electric hob (heat). What should I do besides placing the cures?

    2) Tai Sui (NE) and Sui Po (SW) are also two of my good directions, then should I avoid sleeping and sitting facing these directions? I have two good directions left, so would you recommend I orient my bed towards those?

    Regards,
    Ishaan

    1. Hi Ishaan,

      I’m very well, thank you; I hope you are keeping safe and healthy.

      I would recommend placing some natural crystals in the west for the year and introduce some earth colours such as brown, terracotta, beige or yellow; the easiest way to introduce this in a kitchen is with tea towels.

      You can face the southwest this year as this is seen as sitting with your back to Tai Sui for support.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  16. Hi Daniel,

    I love the new things I’ve purchased from your site this year and have been very busy putting everything in place. My question is about the Salt Water Cures. My SE sector is in the kitchen and in the master bedroom. The kitchen is very busy and I don’t want it to get knocked over. Can I put it in the bedroom? Also, I don’t have a place to put it in the SE corner of either of these rooms. Does it matter which corner it’s placed in as long as it’s somewhere in the SE sector?

    Also, what is your view of putting cures in the garage? Is it better to find a room in the house instead? The north sector (for my other salt water cure) falls into my garage, or the bedroom over the garage that we use only to watch TV in the evenings. Which place is better for the salt water cure?

    Thanks for your advice.

    Warm regards,
    Jill

    1. Hi Jill,

      I’m so glad that you’re happy with your cures for the year!

      The salt cure will be fine in the bedroom as long as it is out of sight of pets or children. This can be placed anywhere in the southeast for the year.

      With garages, if they’re used very often as a utility room or workshop, this is fine to place cures here although it’s always best to place them in a house if you can.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  17. Hi Daniel,

    Trust all is well.

    1) I’m currently sleeping NE sector. Do I have to move my bed to a different sector to avoid Tai Sui? I can either have it in NE or SW. If I can’t move it what cures do I need to have for NE sector near my bed.

    2) I’m aware blue represents water but I’m not sure if I can use shades of blue in a bedroom since water is not advised in a bedroom. I have a guest room bed in NW sector (2021 flying star suggested color is shades of blue). Can I use blue covers or is there another color you can suggest?

    3) My children like to listen to music and it can get loud. What sectors are safe to have loud music.

    4)I have a tent in my kids room which is all white (metal element) but it’s triangle shape (fire element) and there are battery powered lights (fire element) on it which I don’t use that often. Is this item considered Metal element? Which sectors it’s safe to place it this year?

    Thank you very much

    1. Hi Grace,

      I’m very well, thank you; I hope you are staying safe and healthy.

      You can stay sleeping in the northeast although I would recommend placing a Yang Xin Tai Sui plaque in the northeast to appease Tai Sui for the year.

      I would recommend using blue bedsheets in the northwest as this will weaken the annual #7 metal star.

      The safest areas for loud music are the south and west in 2021.

      I would class this as a metal influence more than anything else and this can be placed in the southeast, north, centre or south.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  18. Hi Daniel,

    My neighbor in the East will be putting in a new swimming pool this year. Aside from the windchimes (we are not able to hang up), what other items would you recommend to reduce the 3 Killings Star?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Kacey,

      The distance from your home to where the swimming pool is being built will play a big part on if the Three Killings are disturbed. if this is quite a distance away, this will unlikely cause you problems although if it is 10 metres away, this will have more of a chance of disturbing the Three Killings.

      I would recommend enhancing the east of your home with wood and water cures and read through the link below as this will help keep the Three Killings settled
      https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/flyingstars2021/4star.htm

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Gail,

      That will be fine to place metal in the centre this year as this will feed the natural energy of the annual #6.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Verge,

      That will be fine to place a Ba Gua mirror there and should work well for the year.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  19. Hi Daniel,

    Thank you as always for all the time and effort you and your team take to put this forecast together.

    Could I please get some direction on the following points?

    Plants are N & NE are there any other areas I can place them (large indoor collection of plants)?
    NW – have read somewhere to place three lucky bamboo to curbed 7 star do you support this? (fixed stars 799)
    W – my front door is west should I leave fu dogs here or move to SW (sliding doors not used very often only opened for airflow?
    W – large bowl of water outside? Keep doors open? I have a moving water fountain here. (fixed stars 881)
    STH WEST – place cures ground floor (tv area but not sitting there) or 1st Floor (main bedroom) (fixed stars 354)
    Fishtank – does it count if it has a lid? If so where should it be placed?

    Your guidance is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Skye

    1. Hi Skye,

      You can also place plants in the southwest this year.

      You can use bamboo for the northwest #7 although if it is used alongside fire cures, this can weaken the energy of the fire cures.

      The Fu Dogs can stay where they are for the year.

      The water fountain will work well in the west.

      For the southwest, I would place the cures in the bedroom.

      A good location for the piano would be the west this year.

      I hope this helps, Skye.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank you Daniel.

        Just another couple questions:

        Fishtank – do they count if they have a lid? If so where should they be placed?
        Air Purifier – (electronic) where should it be placed?
        Should I also put a bell on the SE back door? Or windchimes outside enough?

        My water fountain is part in NW and West is this ok?

        Thanks again Daniel.

        Cheers Skye

        1. Hi Skye,

          The fishtank would still count as a large mass of water with the lid and the best place for this would be in the west this year.

          The air purifier can be placed anywhere around the home as these don’t tend to make much noise.

          The windchimes will be enough for the southeast although you can also introduce a metal bell if you like.

          The water fountain is not great in the northwest so I would keep an eye on this and if you have any issues, try turning the fountain off and see if this makes a difference after a week.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  20. Hi – I have a few questions that I hope you’re able to assist with:

    1. If I live in a double storey house, should I be paying as close attention to the areas upstairs as those downstairs? I’m not sure if I should be placing the same cures upstairs and being as vigilant, or whether downstairs should be my primary focus.

    2. Are there any areas for 2021 that candles CAN be used? It seems to me that most of the areas say no fire, no candles – so should I just pack away my candles?

    3. Does burning incense in my house classify as fire? Is it okay to burn incense anywhere or are the specefic areas I shouldn’t be doing this in?

    4. There isn’t anything mentioned about what colours should be used in #8 star to enhance this energy. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!
    Lauren

    1. Hi Lauren,

      With the annual cures, you would not need to place them on both floors. With cures and enhancers, you would usually place them in the more commonly used room across the two floors. If you had a utility room downstairs in the south and a bedroom upstairs in the south, I would place the cure in the south. In another situation, if you had a bathroom upstairs in the north and a living room downstairs in the north, you would place the cure downstairs in the living room.

      For the annual stars, there are no safe areas for candles this year although this will change each month with the Flying stars and I usually write about the best areas to burn candles in my monthly analysis.

      I don’t usually class burning incense as fire energy and it is generally safe to use around the home.

      Good colours for the annual #8 are earth colours such as brown, beige, terracotta or yellow.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  21. Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for your insight and responses! It’s greatly appreciated!
    I have faux white floral branches and yellow floral branches.
    Which direction would be best for the two separate floral arrangements?

    Also, what would you recommend for dining table decor if the room is located in the Northwest direction?
    The information provided on the site was to introduce blue, black, and grey colours but also to reduce metal elements. My understanding was that grey colour represents metal.

    Thank you for the clarification!
    Roro

    1. Hi Roro,

      I would introduce water colours in the dining room. You can use blue glasses, black placemats, grey table cloths however you prefer. Grey is classed as a water colour and metal colours would be more silver, copper, gold, bronze or white.

      For the white floral branches, I would place these in the north or southeast and I would place the yellow in the west as long as they are faux branches.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        What do you recommend for rooms that fall in between two directions?
        My son’s room is right in the middle of North West and West.

        Thank you!

        1. Hi Roro,

          My bedroom falls into the south and southwest and for 2021, I’ll be placing the relevant cures for each sector in each side of the room. For your sons room, I would have him try to spend more time in the west side of the room and keep the northwest more calm and relaxed if possible.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

          1. Thanks again for your quick responses!
            My master bedroom also falls in between two sectors – mostly southeast and east. Due to the current work-from-home situation, my husband has been working in the bedroom during the day (in the north corner of the room). His secretary desk (which we close up at night), is in the east sector of the bedroom.

            I am planning on purchasing the Tsai Shen Yeh from your website to place in the southeast sector and will apply a salt water cure. As there isn’t another bedroom for us to sleep in, is there anything else we should add or remove from the room? Much appreciated!

          2. Hi Roro,

            As long as you keep the bedroom calm and quiet, this should not cause you issues 🙂

            I hope this helps.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

  22. Hello Daniel,

    I always read your annual reports and own the flying stars software.Around this time of the year i am preparing/studying the correlation between my prprerty’s fixed natal stars and the annual stars,in order to place properly the enhancements/cures.This year i have conflicts between natal and annual stars at important rooms.
    1)What should i do? Follow the instructions of the software or follow the instructions of your annual analysis for 2021?
    2)In general do the property natal stars take priority in cures and enhancers? Or the annual stars?

    Thank you in advance!
    Angeliki

    1. Hi Angeliki,

      With the annual and fixed flying stars, the trick is to find a good balance between the elements.

      It’s always safer to weaken a bad annual flying star that has a good fixed star in the same area if they are in conflict.

      If you had a fixed #8 star in your home and had an annual #5 star fly into the same compass area, it is better to weaken the annual star than try to enhance the fixed 8 star.

      You can still use traditional cures such as Buddhas, Kwan Yin etc in areas that are in conflict with each other rather than colours or shapes.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

      Daniel

      1. Hi Daniel,

        I understand what you mean and I will do so, going the safest way.Thank you very much for the response,I appreciate it!

        Regards,
        Angeliki

  23. Thank you for the wonderful work you do and all the explanations.
    I am a little bit confused about how to determine the directions. You wrote in the annual analysis: “The Three Killings – east (52.5 – 127.5)”. But on the “How to take an accurate compass reading” page it says “Tui 67.5 – 112.5 East ”
    So what to consider East? Up to 127.5 degree or up to 112.5 degree?

    1. Hi Tzofia,

      The Three Killings falls into the east (67.5 – 127.5). Thank you for pointing this out to me; I’ll get the page updated.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  24. Sorry, I forgot to ask in the previous post… In my SW which you already advised me on [5,8] 2 base star with #3 coming in. Your advise was metals. I totally agree and thank you. I looked at the link you provided for traditional cures. I do have an angel collection in SW (very small amount). Can I add a red robed laughing Buddha there or would it be a conflict? Should I move the angels if I place the Laughing Buddha there? thank you. 🙂

    1. Hi Dot,

      That will be fine to place a red Buddha in the southwest for the year as this energy will balance between the annual #3 and fixed #8.

      You can keep the angels in place although I would try to keep them a foot or two away from the Buddha.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  25. Hi Daniel,
    Thanks for all your great advice. In the flying star analysis you say”There are also another two other rules that you should follow regarding the Three Killings in 2021. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back towards the east, it is better to face east instead.” My sofa has its back to the East and its difficult to fit it anywhere else in the room. Should I sit with my back to the east facing West if it cannot be avoided? My bed also faces East which means my headboard sits against the East wall, my head is then pointing to the East when I sleep. Again its impossible to move as it would mean being behind a window. Could you tell me if it would still be Ok to use these areas as they are if activated.

    1. Hi Ley,

      If your headboard sits against the east wall, this would be fine as your head would be facing east and it is ok to face the Three Killings during 2021.

      For your sofa, as long as you have appeased the Flying stars for the year and get up every 1-2 hours for a few minutes, this should not cause any problems.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  26. Dear Daniel,
    We plan to renovate and expand, or lift, or build the whole house. How can you avoid all the bad afflictions if a new house is buildt? Old house demolishing, excavating new foundation, heavy equipment, the whole construction process. Do you have any advice?

    1. Hi Nate,

      If you are completely demolishing or renovating the home, I would avoid living in the home until a few weeks to a month after the work is finished as this will give the energy a chance to settle.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  27. Hi Daniel,

    The visiting star for 2021 in the NE is fire element #9. I was planning to use red colors (furniture) there and also green but my main focus was red because of the visiting star (fire). Can I do that?

    Many thanks,
    Grace

    1. Hi Grace,

      that will be fine to use a mix of fire and wood colours in the northwest in the year of the Ox.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  28. Hi Daniel,

    I live in a condo and my master ensuite is in the center of the home. I didn’t realize how inauspicious this was at the time of the purchase. What do you recommend for cures for this area given it’s where the 6 star is located this year.

    Thanks in advance,

    1. Hi Noree,

      The best thing you can do if you have a bathroom in the centre is to keep it as clean as possible and make sure that the toilet seat is kept down when not being used. Having a bathroom in an auspicious area is not the best scenario although it is also not a bad thing. You can still place the annual cures in a bathroom as long as they are not too close to the sink or toilet.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  29. Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for the information.
    I’ve been using colors throughout my home that coordinate with my personal feng shui. According to another feng shui consultant, I should add more fire and earth colors to my wardrobe, home and etc. Thus, in my bedroom located in the South East quadrant, I’m using terracotta-colored bedding. However, should I be following the flying star colors and use white, silver, gold, copper, and bronze in the southeast area?

    1. Hi Noree,

      I would recommend using metal colours in the southeast in 2021 as earth colours would feed the natural energy of the annual #5 star and make it’s influence stronger.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. HI Sarah,

          You can place plants in the southeast as long as you have metal cures in place although I would only have a few (1-3) plants here.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  30. Thank you very much for all your good recommendations, it is so useful!

    My sofa is in South East, and my TV in South. Should I reverse them, so I spend more time in South this year?
    I have to specify that if my sofa is in South, I’ll face North East (around 42º), so I will almost face Tai Sui Grand Duke. But if I stay as I am currently (sofa in South East), I’ll be sitting back to North East but very close to the three killings…

    I have the same problem in my bedroom. I have to choose between sleeping mostly in East, but facing North East (42º), or sleeping mostly in South East, with North East in my back…

    What would you suggest?

    I am Kua 2, if it can be useful.

    Thank you very much.
    Best regards,

    1. Hi Lea,

      Thank you for your lovely words 🙂

      As long as you are quiet when sat in the southeast and introduce some metal cures, that will be fine to keep the sofa in the southeast. To be safe, I would place decorations such as a vase on the line of the Three Killings so that you can avoid the Three Killings.

      For your bed position, it would be better to sleep in the southeast while facing away from the northeast. The southeast is one of your inauspicious directions although this will be better than facing Tai Sui for the year.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  31. The East, NE, SW, and Center

    So I guess the East is bad & good? Can I still sleep and sit in the east as long as I’m quiet? I have wireless headphones for my TV that I planned on putting in the East or can I put that in the Center along with my computer? About the NE? The bedroom is NE where boyfriend sleeps, he watches videos on computer with headphones but laughs really loud. SW has my stove and refrigerator. I can’t paint those red but will Bi You Pi Yao statues help along with all the red I’m gonna need? I can’t sleep in the West. It’s my bathroom and the wall outside my bathroom that I can put a bookshelf at. S hard to sleep at to. S is my 2nd closet door, bar and kitchen. I think I can try to sleep in front of the closet door. my bed is the couch that’s why I say that. My BF doesn’t allow me to sleep with him because I snore. I wish there was a cure for that.

    1. Hi Christina,

      Yes, the east has an auspicious annual star and also has the Three Killings here. This will be fine to sleep here as long as the area is kept calm and quiet.

      The Pi Yao will help in the southwest and if you are able to, I would also place a red mat here.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  32. Hi Daniel
    Thank for all the information given on your site. I have been studying it every year for many years now.
    I have already got my cures kit safely stored and waiting to be placed on the 4th of February.
    I’m looking for any extra advise really.
    My bathroom is in the SW.
    March last year 2020 I started to renovate it. Bath out tiles off floor up.
    Then covid and lock down so everything stopped.
    This year I am hoping I can get the supplies and the workman to finish the work. So I can have a fully functioning bathroom again.
    Anything extra I can do to avoid the negative effects of refitting a bathroom in SW?
    I am quite worried about the problems it can cause, but not sure I can live another year without a bath, floor or a basin.
    Any thoughts or advise welcome.

    Keep well stay safe
    Kindest regards Sally

    1. Hi Sally,

      No problem at all 🙂

      The good news is that the louder work has all been done in the southwest and the fitting process will not be as noisy which should help avoid Sui Po being activated.

      I’d try to get your workman to keep noise as low as he can; a lot of people say they suffer from migraines rather than mentioning disturbing the Feng Shui annual afflictions as this will usually be a lot easier to explain.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  33. Hey Daniel,

    We have our front door in SE which is occupied by the 5 in 2021. So we will hang a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror over the door. Now here is my question. We also have a door in the N which we use very often (Back yard) Should we hang a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror there also or what would you suggest?
    Thank you in advance.

    PJ

    1. Hi PJ,

      The Ba Gua wealth protection mirror will work well for your front door although you would not need one at the back unless you have any poison arrows facing towards that door.

      I would recommend introducing a salt water cure and 6 Chinese coins tied in a row in the southeast and north in 2021 to weaken the annual #5.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  34. Hi Daniel Hannah,

    I started to follow you and your website last year 2020. It’s been a good year for us even with our current pandemic situation. Anyway, I have a few questions for you for this Fengshui 2021.

    1. I’m missing the SW sector of my house. Currently, I have a blue tall lamp with a wooden stand, some metal bookshelf stand, metal wall decor, wind chimes, and 3 potted plants on the very corner of my S area. I’m confused about how I’m going to separate my south cures and to make up for the missing sector (SW) in my house.

    2. I would like to place our TV back to my East area wall. Is this ok?
    3. The center of our house mainly occupied by the stairs and refrigerator. Is it ok to place the cures on top of the refrigerator as long as there’s no clutters- nothing on top except the cures?
    4. I have a chicken metal wire bookshelf where I place most of my crystals, its like my altar for my crystals. where should I place them this year?
    5. I’m confused about when to remove the 2020 cures? and when to place the 2021 cures? correct my understanding, Feb3rd (9.58 time US-NY) should I remove the old cures? then place my 2021 cures right away? or I’ll wait on Feb4th? Im working these days and I’m getting anxious I’m not gonna be able to do this.

    Really appreciate all your help,
    Mariel Lambino

    1. Hi Mariel,

      To make up a missing corner, the best thing is to place a large boulder or potted plant around 3 foot wide or more on the edge of the missing corner; you can then place cures or elements outside that will not get damaged from weather.

      That will be fine to place the tv in the east from the 3rd of February.

      That will be fine to place cures on top of the fridge if they won’t fall over.

      I would place the bookshelf in the southeast or north for 2021 and if possible, place the crystals elsewhere as these two elements will work against each other.

      You can remove your 2020 cures a day or two before the 3rd of February and then place the 2021 cures on the 3rd or after this date; I wouldn’t worry about placing cures at an exact time as it will be fine to place them later in the day when you get home.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Thank You Daniel

        I stand correct, about the TV placement. I would like to put it on the wall majority SE area and a little bit of the E. Is this still ok, even with metal cures?

        Then my Main couch will be in my S but facing E. Is this still ok?

        I have a family photo gallery with black frames on the S wall. I’m thinking of changing them into big white frames. Where else can I put my photo gallery. I’m thing the East wall of my office and SE corner wall and/or the wall facing W in my kitchen?

        Is there any auspicious date to buy a couch? I’m planning to replace my 10year old black couch into a new gray one.

        How to dispose old Fengshui cures?

        Can I use of the health ball featuring dragon and Phoenix? To replace a real statue of Lung Feng Fu Dragon & Phoenix?

        Thank you for taking the time answering my questions

        Mariel

        1. Hi,

          As long as you keep this area calm and quiet and do not have the tv too loud, this should be fine with the appropriate cures. The sofa will be fine in the south.

          You can leave the black frames as they are if you prefer as this will strengthen the water element here for the year.

          For the couch, If it is a significant cost, I would check the February Almanac for signing contracts as this will be a similar subject and will give a good date – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/advice/almanacfebruary2021.htm

          To dispose of old cures, I would wrap them in tissue and carefully place them in a bin outside of your home.

          The health ball would not work in the same way as these are usually made of metal and would weaken the good earth of the annual #8.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

          1. Really appreciate your time and effort answering all my questions. I have one last question. If I intend to keep my old cures just in case I’ll be needing them in the future and also to save myself money too. What do you recommend for storing old Fengshui items/cures?

            Thank you,
            Mariel

          2. Hi Mariel,

            The best way to store cures that you are not using is to wrap them in tissue and place them all together in a box and place them out of sight in a loft, cupboard or garage where they won’t be disturbed.

            I hope this helps.

            Kind regards,
            Daniel

      2. Hello! There was drilling and digging in the elevator (Gran Duke) and outside my house (5), from the government putting optic fiber in the houses….My God! What can i do to mitigate the harmful effects?
        When can i activate the Sun Star to deal with this?
        Thank you in advance

        1. Hi Kelly,

          Depending on how far from your home this was will depend on the influence it had with activating Tai Sui. I would recommend placing a Tai Sui plaque for the year to appease Tai Sui in 2021.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  35. Hello,

    Is it possible to recommend the best colors for each sector? I use traditional cures but enhance with color. Guidance in best colors for each sector would be appreciated.

    Thank you! Kind Regards

    1. Hi Sarah,

      Here are the colours for each sector in 2021

      N – white, silver, gold, copper, bronze
      NE – shades of green
      E – shades of green or blue
      SE – white, silver, gold, copper, bronze
      S – white, silver, gold, copper, bronze or shades of blue
      SW – red, orange, purple, burgundy, pink, lilac
      W – brown, terracotta, beige, yellow
      NW – shades of blue
      Centre – brown, terracotta, beige, yellow,

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  36. Dear Daniel,

    Thank you very much for your hard work every year. I am a sworn fan of your flying star analysis and I am using it yearly for many years now.

    I got very scared this year as our main door is in north, loving room in South East and Bedroom in South west ( all the main areas of spending time are in bad areas ) and we can’t change it. Also my husband is very against traditional cures, I got permission only for 6 coin cure because of my complete panic attack this year. I am planning to place metal bowls in North and South East and red pillows with 2 red apples in South West. I will removed all the earth element ( including flower pots) from SE, all fire from N and SE and as much metal as I can from SW. Is there something not that noticeable I place there to help?

    Also West in my house is kitchen which is basically fire and metal. I will try to introduce as much water as I can but is there something I can do more to reduce that metal and stovetop influence?

    Also very stupid question, is porcelain more or less considered earth? I have very beautiful porcelain flower, would it suit help in the Centre and Wenst?

    And last question. (apologies for so many questions). I have wonderful 3 stacks of bamboo, which direction would be best to place it?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Deima

    1. Hi Deima,

      Thank you for your lovely words 🙂

      I would avoid slamming the front door and try to keep this area quiet. Metal colours are good here such as a copper or bronze door mat.

      As long as you keep these areas relatively quiet as much as possible and introduce the relevant colours, this will do a lot to avoid these stars being activated.

      For the west, I’d introduce earth colours such as a beige or brown dishcloth. Terracotta pots are good here for the year.

      Yes, porcelain would be classed as an earth material and can be used in the west or centre.

      I would place the bamboo in the east this year.

      I hope this helps 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  37. Hello Daniel,
    Just a question please… I have [5,8] with period 2 star in my Southwest area as well as it being our facing and front door. With the #3 entering for 2021 should I still place some red objects in the SW? Would the color red aggravate the #5 mountain star that I have in my natal chart? If so what do you recommend please?
    Thank you. Dot

      1. Thank you so much for your help with this. The 2021 flying star analysis as well as your monthly flying stars update are amazing. It is so helpful and always has the best recommendations. I look forward to reading and following them every year. Our chart is a difficult one, but with reading your updates and applying the recommendations always helps me to understand what to do and works. 🙂 Thank you so much for all that you do. It is appreciated more than I can say.

        I do have one more question. Sorry, I should have included it in the first post. In our SE we have [7,1] with 4 period/base star and with #5 entering I am not sure what to do as I don’t want to enhance #7 but I know I need to correct #5. Can you advise me please? Thank you. Dot

        1. Hi Dot,

          Thank you or your lovely words 🙂

          With the fixed stars and annual star in the southeast, I would place metal cures here for the annual #5 star such as a salt water cure and the 6 coins in a row as this will create a good balance of energy between the fixed and annual stars with metal weakening the annual #5 and also enhancing the fixed #1 star. The metal will feed the natural energy of the #7 star although a very small amount as this combination of elements will spread the energy evenly.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

          1. Thank you so much for helping me with this. I always value your responses. Your feng shui analysis always helps me year to year. Thank you. 🙂 Dot

      2. Thank you so much. I did follow the link and found wonderful suggestions. Just a question please. Long Yu Quan Bi cure and enhancer talisman is nice, but would the red string cause any issues? Would that be considered adding fire energy? Do Dragons represent the wood element and make #3 stronger? Sorry for so many questions, but just a little confused.

        Thank you for all your help and guidance.

        1. Hi Dot,

          The red string will help to weaken the annual #3 wood energy for the year. Each part of the cure works in synergy with each other and the Dragons influence would not strengthen the wood element of the #3.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  38. Hi Daniel,
    Thank you and everyone there for all your great advice and help in 2020. It seems though we have a few weeks remaining that all the cures and enhancers from your yearly package balanced the year wonderfully and we have made it through quite safe and well with only a few minor bumps. Here are my questions regarding 2021:
    1. I have cures and enhancers from previous years that I want to place in ’21, please guide me to the page again that tells how to cleanse them.
    2. Are there some of them I should not use year after year? For example, can I still use the coins, the metal windchime, etc.
    3. If some of the cures include coins with them, for example the dragon tortoise, do I need to replace the coins or does the moonlight and sunshine cure them too? I do realize that the coins in the salt water cures MUST be replaced.
    4. I am renting a furnished house and the sofa and one large chair are RED leather in the North which is our livingroom also with the Television, so do I need to cover them both completely with a metal colored throw or is it enough to just place said throw over the back for example.

    Kudos again for taking time to advise and answer questions for all of us. I have been your customer for years, and I cannot emphasize enough how beneficial the practice of Feng Shui has been in my life and especially since finding your trustworthy and honorable company. May 2021 be a fabulous year for us all.

    Sincerely,
    Shonna Kelso

    1. Hi Shonna,

      thank you for your lovely words 🙂

      Here is a link for reusing your 2020 cures in the year of the Ox – https://www.fengshuiweb.co.uk/reusing-your-2020-annual-feng-shui-cures-enhancers-kit-in-2021

      The coins in cures such as the Dragon headed Tortoise can be reused as they are not used in the same way as the 6 coins in a row which are used to weaken the annual #5 and #2 stars and store a lot of negative energy.

      That will be fine to place the throw over the top of the sofa although if you are able to, I would try to spread it out as this will bring more of a metal influence to the area.

      I hope this helps, Shonna and hope you have a fantastic year of the Ox.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Vilma,

      Good colours for the southeast in 2021 are metal colours such as white, silver, gold, copper or bronze.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Hi Daniel,
      My house is in period 8. Facing West 2 (W2) sitting East 2 ( E2). Kindly advise me what shall be the suitable colour for the wall at North sector? Thank you

      1. Hi Melissa,

        I would recommend using metal colours in the north of your home such as white, silver or copper.

        I hope this helps.

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

  39. I have an electronic water fountain which we use indoors to give our cat fresh water, it is continually running and we change the water regularly. Where should this be placed for the next new year?
    Thank you
    Kind regards
    Kirstine

    1. Hi Kristine,

      You can place this in the west from the 3rd of February for the year of the Ox.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

      1. Hi.
        I have a similar issue with our cat’s water fountain, can I move it in W considering that our master bedroom is located in the west sector?
        Other available spaces for the fountain in the house would be: NE and E (office) or N (hallway and stairs).
        Also my East downstairs sector (kitchen) has the electric oven/stove (can’t re/move it and I have to use it daily).
        Many thanks for the advice.
        P.S. i am VERY impressed by you analysis this year, very detailed. Cheers.

        1. Hi Cami,

          That would be fine to move the water fountain to the west if you can as this is the only safe area for a water feature this year.

          For the east, I would recommend introducing blue or black towels here for the year.

          I hope this helps.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  40. Hi Daniel,

    Bringing this to your attention. JANUARY 2021 has the same FS
    profile as the entire 2021 year. Therefore, we have 13 months. Do you understand this?

    1. Hi Anna,

      The annual Flying stars Change in February 2021 and will carry through to February 2022. January is still the year of the Rat and will be the final month.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  41. Hello there,

    Could you please tell me what are good colors for #2 area? Is gray or white, OK?

    Thank you,
    Mary Anne

    1. Hi Mary Anne,

      The best colours for the annual #2 are metal colours such as white, silver, gold, copper, bronze etc.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    2. Metal colours are good So grey , white, gold and silver. But I personally for number too I use green( woo) and a lots plants. If number 2 is in the bedroom I recommend to change the room. Boa Sorte. Lilian Ribeiro

  42. Help! I am dreading the flying star configuration for my house in 2021. Our bedroom and kitchen are in the SE, our main TV watching room and garage are in the North and our exercise room is in the SW. These rooms are where we spend the majority of our time while at home. Aside from making sure there are no renovations, no door slamming, no very loud noises, and using some of your suggested cures, what else is there to do? Typically, all of our main rooms are not afflicted in the same year! The negative stars are sure to be activated with all of the activity happening in these rooms. We have an open floor plan and the west sector is missing.

    1. Hi Jill,

      It can be very hard to avoid having your main areas conflicted by annual stars and as you said, the cures and low noise levels will play a huge role in the stars avoiding being activated. The southeast of my home is my staircase and this year, I’ll be hanging the 6 coins here along with a salt cure and also making sure to not run up the stairs when possible.

      For the west, you can place a large pot at least four or five feet high to make up the missing sector and can then place potted plants in this area to enhance the annual #8.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi,

      Earth colours such as beige, brown, terracotta or beige are good in the west in 2021.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  43. Hi Daniel and Michael,

    Thanks for all your work on this! Reading your reports at the end of each year is a must with my new year Feng Shui preparation.

    I am a male “Buddha Rabbit”, who was severely hit by the negative 2020 flying stars in relation to health, particularly the stomach. I feel I just made it through with salt water cures!

    We are moving into a new apartment at the end of 2020 and unfortunately have only two options for the bedroom – the North or the South West.

    Both have their problems! If I don’t care about anything else for next year (wealth, general luck, etc.), which of these should I choose, to best protect my health during 2021?

    1. Hi Adam,

      I’m sorry to hear that you’ve had problems this year and I hope that things get better for you soon.

      The north and south are both afflicted by inauspicious stars and annual afflictions in the year of the Rat although if these areas are kept quiet and treated with metal cures (south) or fire cures (north), these areas can avoid being activated and causing any problems. Out of the two, I would personally go with the north if it were me.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

        1. Hi,

          We have the annual #3 star in the north until the 3rd of February and to weaken this, we use fire cures.

          Kind regards,
          Daniel

  44. Hi. For the #2 coin cure, is this 6 coins on a string hung vertically or would this be hung horizontally?

    Thank you,

    Dana in Nashville, TN

    1. Hi Dana,

      The 6 coins in a row can be hung from the loop at the top and should hang vertically. You can also lay these flat on a table if you prefer.

      I hope this helps 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Mary,

      Good colours for the #9 star are all different shades of green to enhance the fire energy of the #9.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  45. Hi,
    I believe a few typos occurred while writing about the North for year 2021

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

    ‘Another powerful cure for the south in 2020 is to place a statue of Tsai Shen Yeh in a gold colour. The God of wealth statue is very good at weakening the bad earth and also protects wealth for 2020, making this a very powerful cure’
    South was typed instead of North, also 2020 instead of 2021

    As well in the following sentences
    ‘ Please do not introduce any red colours in the south during the year of the Rat and at all costs’
    ‘ If you have any red colours in the south that cannot be removed this year, such as a red sofa’

    I know how professional you are, have been reading your site for years and am sure all the typos were unintentional and will quickly be corrected.

    Regards and Merry Christmas 🎄 🎄
    Ayah

    1. Hi Ayah,

      Thank you so much for pointing these out to me. I’ve updated the page and will check over the rest of the article to see if I can find anything else.

      Wishing you a very merry and safe Christmas 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Daniel
