What do we do with this information?
In every building, there are good and bad palaces which affect our daily lives. How and who gets affected (good or bad) depends on who occupies which area of the home or business. The best Cure is to be aware of the influences each month and know how to capitalise on the beneficial energies or avoid the unfavourable influences either through enhancers or cures or avoidance. Knowing the effects of the influences allows us to take appropriate measures and actions to calm interactions.
So, do not get too worried when you come across a particularly bad sector – sometimes with thought, care and the appropriate elements, we can balance any conflict of energies or compensate the lack of an element to bring harmony to a palace. If a palace is particularly bad, avoidance is the best cure. Please do not panic when you find that your bedroom is located in an affected sector for the month. This is only a temporary influence and can be avoided.
- Use the beneficial areas more and the areas of negative influences less. For example, if the living room is affected by conflicting energies, try not to play loud music in this room for the month. By keeping the area quiet, you successfully manipulate the effect of the energies.
- If possible, use another door if your main door is affected this month.
- Use the good sectors to solve existing problems whether they concern relationships or money matters.
If your main door is affected and this is the only door you have in your property, you should take extra care in what you do during the affected month. You will know it may not be a good time to take risks and also to take extra care of your health.
Are you really prepared for 2018?
Xuan Kong Flying Stars July 2018:
From 7th July 2018 to 6th August 2018 is the sixth month Ji Wei (Yin Earth Goat) of the Wu Xu year (Yang Earth Dog) with the ruling energy of #9 in the central grid and all stars lined up with the annual stars.
For the Flying Star analysis for July 2018, I have copied the write up for the annual stars as we have double energies in each area as the monthly and annual stars match up with each other.
If you have your annual cures and enhancers in place for 2018, you do not need to do anything for July.
Kan 1 White In 2018 resides in the northwest
Kan #1 is a water element. In the physical body it is the ear. Internal organ it is the kidneys and it is also blood. It also affects career and luck.
From the 4th February 2018, the annual #1 Kan (Tan Lang) water star has flown in to the northwest of every home and office all around the world. The northwest has inherent metal energy and there is a nice relationship between the two stars from a five elements point of view when metal meets water. The northwest is a lovely area for the eldest male of a home or business in 2018 although also fortunate for all males. The northwest is a wonderful area on the whole although we also have Tai Sui located here for the year and it is vital that this area is treated with peace and quiet along with the necessary Cures and Enhancers for 2018.
If your home or office has a front door in the northwest in 2018, it is very important that you do not slam the door as loud noises can activate the maleficent effects of Tai Sui. You must also aim to avoid any internal doors or windows being slammed in this area during 2018 and avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs; if you have no option but to undergo heavy work this year, please make sure that you follow the advice below and also have the relevant cures in place. The traditional method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui Plaque along with an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins to pay respect and appease the deity. By paying respect to Tai sui, you can avoid the problems that are prevalent with this annual affliction. These are two key cures for the northwest in 2018 although please do not worry if you cannot afford these; there are a lot of other options you can implement to weaken the troubles that Tai sui can bring.
Nearly every year, you will come across a sector in your home with a fortunate annual star which suffers from one of the annual afflictions although if you are careful and do not make too much noise in the northwest this year, you can still benefit from the lovely influence that the annual #1 can bring to the northwest in 2018. Once you have your Jiang Wu Tai Sui plaque in place, you can attract new wealth and protect existing wealth by placing an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins which can bring all of the positive energy from the visiting star.
This is a lovely area for 2018 and can bring in wealth, enhance relationships and career luck although please note that this area can affect the males of the household or office as the northwest is a Chien Trigram which can affect the male head of a family or home. If you have any poison arrows such as a busy road or power lines, you should place a Ba Gua mirror outside pointing towards the poison arrow; if you are unsure which mirror to use, a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror is the safest bet for the northwest this year.
If you activate certain areas of the home this year, it can bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and also romance and relationships as peach blossom is particularly good in 2018. The intensity of these attributes will differ in varying degrees according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars.
I would really recommend placing a Tai Sui plaque in the northwest during 2018 at the least as it is such a shame to have such a lovely area with the potential of Tai Sui ruining the positive influence in the northwest this year. As with every year, we include these standard in our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits as they really are a vital cure for protection. If you get your Tai Sui plaque from another store, please make sure that the plaque is relevant for the Yang Earth Dog year as there are 60 Different Tai Sui generals and each one is for a different year.
If you cannot afford to use the cures I have recommended or simply do not wish to use traditional cures, I would place some water colours in the way of bedding, pillows, lampshades, rugs etc such as blacks, greys and blues. If you have a bed in the northwest this year, I would place a brass Wu Lou talisman here to protect wealth.
You should avoid fire colours in the northwest this year as this will drain the energy of the annual #1 star. This is not a good area for candles in 2018.
If using furniture and decorations in the northwest this year to enhance the #1 star, you should place furniture with waves and ripples as this is a great water cure
Summary for the annual #1 star in the northwest in 2018:
The best months during 2018 are February, April, July, September and November.
Take extra care in the months of March, May, June and December and check back here to further analyse these months.
Enhancement summary and advice for the #1 visiting the northwest in 2018
- A brass Wu-Lou would be good for a bedroom that falls into the northwest along with blue, black, grey or charcoal colours. This is especially so if you are not in good health and if you cannot buy a wu lou place a heavy round object close to your bed but avoid candles or colours red, pink, purple or any fire colours.
- Place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui plaque in the northwest in 2018 to appease and pay respect to Tai Sui this year.
- Avoid candles or fire colours like red, pink, purple, orange or burgundy in the northwest in 2018, blues, blacks, grey or charcoal are good colours to use.
- Place a statue of an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins in the northwest to enhance and protect existing and new wealth.
- Metal objects are good to place in the NW in 2018.

- Naturally not as powerful but round metal shapes are an alternative to using Feng Shui items but avoid sharp or menacing looking metal objects.
Kun 2 Black In 2018, the Kun 2 Black visits the west
We have the annual #2 menacing star enter the west in 2018 and this makes the area temperamental and unstable although with the placement of some powerful cures and enhancers along with some select colour choices, we can weaken the effects and make the most of this area for the year. When the #2 earth star falls in to the west which is inherently the #7 metal star, both of these stars are actually harmonious with each other and although both are negative stars, we can use this to our advantage and weaken the negative influences of this area. If you have a bedroom, office, lounge or other room that is used a lot in the west in 2018 and you are not able to avoid this area, please read the advice below carefully.
If you have a bathroom, spare room, or storage space in the west of your home or office, this is very good news as this area will not have as much foot traffic or noise. The west of Michael and Jo’s home is home to their master bedroom and living room so I know that they will definitely have their cures and enhancers in place from the 4th February to avoid problems.
If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the west this will inevitably activate its malicious effects, so read on…
We have the #2 star visiting the west #7 palace and when we see 2 & 7 together the potential of fires is strong so please take the time to check all of your smoke alarms and do not take any risks with candles or open fires in this area in 2018, especially if you decide not to implement any of the recommendations I have suggested below.
This star will affect the health of those under its influence and can bring problems relating to wealth, illness, disease, stress, back stabbing and overall bad luck so please take this advice seriously and do not leave the west and see what happens this year. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4. Check on this page if you do not know your Gua number eightmansions.htm or if you have our Academy of Feng Shui software you can calculate your Gua and best directions.
For the west in 2018, I would recommend placing a Guanshiyin Protection bell, salt water cure and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon. You should also place metal cures such as a Wu Lou, metal singing bowl and many more providing they are not menacing looking; a round, smooth metal shape is the best option to dissipate its negative influence in the west of your home or office in 2018. You should avoid pointy or sharp shapes in the west in 2018.
The Guanshiyin Protection bell is one of the most protective cures you can use and is a powerful cure for the #2 star in the west. If you are suffering from an illness you would place this beside your bed, for study, creativity and business place on your desk.
A statue of Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for 2018. Make sure that you do not have any red coloured decorations in the west this year and avid burning candles here this year. Do not panic if you already have fire colours in the west already; you can negate this by introducing metal colours such as white, silver, gold, bronze or copper in the way of pillows, throws etc.
Any females who are expecting a first-born baby in 2018 or are trying for a baby this year should try to avoid this area if their bedroom is located in the west. If you are unable to avoid this, please make sure that you have the necessary cures in place along with metal colours. If you have our software, check the Min Gua section to find your best sleeping direction. A Metal Wu Lou beside your bed is a good cure if you have no option but to sleep in the west of your home this year as this gives elemental support to the west (metal) and also symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star. Because the west is associated with the youngest daughter of the home the youngest female member of the home or business can be affected so make sure if she sleeps, works or spends a lot of time here all cures are placed. Be very careful in June 2018 as the west is at its worst then.
Do not decorate your room with any fire colours this year such as reds, oranges, purples, burgundy, lilac or pinks as this will aggravate the #2 star. You should also avoid burning candles in the west this year.
The most important cures to place in 2018 in the west are the salt water cure and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon along with the Guanshiyin Protection bell and why they come standard in all our 2018 cures and enhancers kit.
Avoidance of this area is the best cure although I know this is hard so try and follow the advice and try and keep it as quiet as possible.
Now having given you all this bad news, I will now give some hope for those who are Gua 9 or 2 as this combination whilst on the whole is very bad it can be good for them in wealth and career, you would still be wise to place the recommended cures as detailed here but the effects of the #2 black will not be bad for you and can even give you positive results.
Summary for the annual #2 star in the west in 2018:
Do not activate this area with loud noises, keep quiet and avoid building work or refurbishment although it is not too bad. Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place a Wu Lou, salt water cure, gold Toad, wealth ingot and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours white, silver, gold or copper.
Better months are January, May, August, October and December.
Take extra care in the months of February, April, June, July and September.
Remedies and advice for the #2 visiting the west in 2018
- Hang a Guanshiyin Protection bell in the west of your home or office in 2018
- Place a salt water cure
- You do not need all Dragons and bells, you can use any metal ornament as long as it is not sharp or aggressive looking, and believe it or not a good cure is a round metal dog bowl or weight lifters weights.
- Hang six Chinese coins tied in red ribbon.
- A brass wealth ingot is good for protecting wealth.
- Place a gold coloured three legged Toad with an i-ching coin underneath.
- Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.

Chen 3 Jade In 2018, the sound of the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the northeast palace in 2018
The northeast is not a nice area in 2018 and it is important that you are aware that there is risk of possible thefts, arguments, disputes, loss of wealth, legal problems and hot tempers and this is especially the case if you have a main door or important room in the northeast in 2018. The youngest son in a family can be affected by this influence this year and if there is not a son, this is relevant to the male of the house so please take note and do not start panicking as with the cures and enhancers in place you will avoid many problems.
To remedy its effects, use red decorative objects, candles, lamps and lights. A nice simple cure is a red (fire colour) floor mat or a table lamp with a red shade. Do not use metal (metal colour is OK) to control this energy for you will aggravate it, restricting the beneficial influence brought by auspicious monthly stars in certain months and magnify its negative influence.
It is not advised to place a water feature inside your home or office in the northeast in 2018 unless you have had a practitioner advise that it is ok to do so.
Some books or websites that you may have come across will tell you the #3 wood star can be a good star during period 8 (2004 – 2024) but in my opinion, it is still an unpredictable star and you should not try and activate it unless you are qualified to do so or you have used our Feng Shui software. It will become more usable towards the later part of the 20-year period 8 cycle.
Over the years, I have come across books and websites recommending that you should place water where the annual #3 star is located for the year and I can tell you now, to do this can bring arguments, wealth issues, divorce and legal problems in to your life; unless you take your land formations, period, mountain and water stars in to account, please be very careful. I am not saying these people are wrong to recommend placing water; I am saying that you should have a good understanding of the Flying Stars in your home or office before using such a powerful enhancer on a known unbalanced star at this particular time in the twenty-year cycle.
It is important that you make sure that any documents that you sign during 2018 are thoroughly checked over before agreeing to anything as the energy that the annual #3 brings to the northeast in 2018 can denote arguments, disagreements and even lawsuits. Either case, there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during 2018 especially if you have a main door in the northeast and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. Please be careful during 2018 especially if you have a main door in the northeast and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. You should also a hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2018. The reason why it is very bad in 2018 is because when the #3 star flies into the northeast Ken palace which is an earth element, wood and earth are in conflict causing many problems.
For the northeast in 2018, it is important to place a Baohulu protection gourd. We had this gourd hand made for us and carefully placed together with red ribbon and six row rhombus signifying wealth and protection for the building and embossed with a symbol of wealth, luck and health protection against the annual #3 star.
Surely, I am over exaggerating the problem? not at all; My parent’s main door falls into the northeast and the last time we had the annual #3 star enter the northeast, they had a new gate put so we could all enter and leave through the south rear door. This proved to be very inconvenient for us but it was not worth taking any chances.
Another very powerful cure for the northeast this year is a Dragon Chasing Pearl tablet huo long ming zhu (fire dragon with treasures) which should be hung in the northeast of your home or office in 2018 to dissipate and remove the risk of legal problems, disputes and arguments, fraud and money loss this year.
Remedies and advice for the #3 visiting the northeast in 2018
- Place a light in the northeast If you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
- Do not hang wind chimes of any material in the northeast in 2018, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.
- Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2018 and check smoke alarms.
- Place a Baohulu protection gourd to suppress the negative influences of the annual #3 in the northeast this year
- Check through everything before signing documents if your office is in the northeast.
- Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well.
- Place a Dragon Chasing Pearl tablet in the northeast in 2018 for protection
Sun 4 Green In 2018, Sun 4 Green sits in the south of the Lo Shu square
In 2018, we have the Sun wood 4 enter the south palace which is a conditional star although in period 8 (2004 – 2024), it is an auspicious star. The #4 star governs romance, career, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. With the wood of the #4 star combined with the inherent #9 fire energy, this is a glowing relationship and we can expect a lovely synergy in the south with help from the advice below.
To enhance this wonderful influence, you must use a Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer in the south of your home or office during 2018 which is a very special peach blossom enhancer Talisman Shou charm and also an extremely powerful manifestation enhancer for the south this year.
This cure and enhancer when used is also a manifestation enhancer so it is good to place an image close to the crystals that represents everything you want to achieve in life, an example to some would be a picture of a beautiful home that you desire, a man or female that you admire, a car like a Ferrari or Mini, the number of children you would like, I think you are getting the picture by now, just create a dream board with all that you desire pinned to it or draw the image or you can even download some images from www.google.com this really is a very powerful way of manifesting your dreams and it really does work, remember to place the image by the sheng chi enhancer. This cure and enhancer is so important in 2018 and why it comes standard in all our 2018 cures and enhancers kit.
Although the annual #4 star is a very auspicious star, without cures, it can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the occupants of the building if the cures are not in place. Having a main door in the south of your home or office with the annual cures in place can bring in new opportunities and lots of chances to travel this year.
You should not use fire or metal colours in the south this year such as white, silver, chrome, gold, copper or bronze as this will destroy the lovely influence of the annual star. If you already have these colours in more permanent features such as a sofa or walls, just make sure you introduce some water colours such as blues, blacks and greys using items such as rugs, a floor mat, cushions, tablecloths etc.
As in every star, the 4 Green has a positive and negative aspect to its nature. Although a favourable annual star in 2018, it can also be affected by the presence of an unfavourable monthly star and when it does, it denotes betrayal, heartbreaks, scandals and humiliation in affairs of the heart. The affected months are April, May, June and September during 2018 so please take note of this in your calendar and check back on the monthly flying stars.
You should treat the south as your relationship and creativity area for 2018 as it can be very good for the occupants of a home and office. If the south is an important room such as an office, bedroom or lounge, you should try to keep this area as clean and clear as possible as this will really make a big difference. If you have a main door in the south in 2018, make sure that the door and furniture are kept clean throughout the year and do not keep shoes out in the hallway; investing in a shoe box can prove very beneficial this year for the south. I am looking forward to the #4 star as it visits my main office in 2018 which is great news for my type of business. Business’s likes jewellers, metal workers or similar must make sure they activate this area and keep it clear.
A beautiful and powerful cure for the south this year is the Taohua Mandarin ducks statue which is a very special talisman charm to enhance peach blossom, Peach blossom is so important this year as we have the south has the #4 romance, career, wealth and academic star which is why we have included the Taohua Mandarin ducks in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
Couples with a bedroom in the south can also enjoy good relationships in 2018 if the area is activated correctly with the right cures. There may also be a chance of producing intelligent children. If you want to enhance this further place a statue of Kwan Yin in the south.
If you are looking to produce a child this year, you should display peanuts in shells (groundnuts) or any seed products like black or red melon seeds (Gua zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’ and for the Chinese this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means the birth of many children. You should display them anywhere in the bedroom and of course be careful if anyone in the home suffers with nut allergies.
Summary for the annual #4 star in the south in 2018:
With the above cures and enhancers in place you should reap the rewards from this area especially if you are looking to enhance relationships or creativity; this area is very good for writers, artists, students and anyone that is related to the travel, crystal, alternative, health industry.
Avoid fire element and colours red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue or black. The south really has a lovely influence in 2018 and I would really recommend placing the suggested cures and enhancers along with the colours although the best traditional cures you can place this year are the Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer and Taohua Mandarin ducks statue. If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here especially wind chimes from the 2018 cures. Spend time in the south if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
recommendations and cures for the #4 visiting the south in 2018
- Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
- Place a Taohua Mandarin ducks statue in the south of your home or office
- For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added on the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
- Avoid displaying too much metal objects here especially large heavy ornaments.
- Place a Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer
- Fresh flowers or small pots of green leafy or flowering plants can be displayed in this spot of the house to lift the qi. Blue or green flowers are a good choice.
- If you have the Taohua mandarin Ducks, this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
- Place photos of loved ones or images of love to enhance relationships or attract new love. This can done with photos, paintings or statues, make sure there is always a pair in the image.
- For romance, a Dragon headed Tortoise is very good
The 5 Yellow In 2018, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy is located in the north palace
The north is heavily afflicted in 2018 as we have the annual #5 earth star visiting the north with the #1 inherent water energy and when this combination meets up, this can be very destructive and cause wealth losses and bad luck which is why special cures and enhancers are extremely important this year for the north. In 2018 we also have the Three Killings annual affliction enter the north which makes this area even more volatile unless you treat this are with peace and quiet along with some very powerful metal cures. I always try and deliver bad news with a positive approach as I am a strong believer that you can always turn bad in to good when you have the right attitude and while the north is extremely afflicted in 2018, you can still do a lot to weaken the malevolent influences that are present in the north this year. The last time the annual #5 visited the north in my home, which is the worst possible combination, I kept a positive attitude and began to plan early for the year ahead and got any big work that was needed completed before the annual #5 entered the north and placed all of my cures and enhancers and did not suffer from any of the problems that this combination can bring. Make sure you keep calm and plan early for the north in 2018 and you should be fine.
It’s essential you avoid making any form of deafening renovations or re-decorative work in the north part of your home or office between 4th February 2018 and 3rd February 2019. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes, build foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any loud equipment in the areas inside or outside your property or garden.
If you have no option but to perform work in the north, I would advise that you place a six hollow rod metal wind chime along with six Chinese I-Ching coins and a salt water cure in the north during 2018. This advice is important as it’s the worst of all the annual afflictions due to both the Three Killings and the Annual Five Star is located in the same area in 2018. We take this very seriously at the Feng Shui Store as we’ve seen some pretty nasty events over the past 37 years when this energy has been disturbed.
All of the advice I have given on this website over the last nineteen years has always come straight from the heart and I always try to write the same way I would when recommend something to a friend with every good intention and in 2018, it really is vital that you place the following items below in the north. If you can find these cures somewhere else, by all means go ahead but please make sure that you get them from a reputable store and that the coins are from a good dynasty as this really does make all of the difference and something we have always sworn by. Over the years, we could have purchased our I-Ching coins at a hugely discounted rate although if they are not made to the highest quality, they are really not worth using and this is why we have never offered low quality cures and enhancers at the Feng Shui Store.
For 2018, I would strongly suggest placing these Cures in the north of your home or office:
If you do not want to place these cures or cannot afford them, please do not panic as there is still a lot you can do to weaken the influence present in the north this year. Introduce plenty of good quality metal in to the north of your home or office this year and make sure any metal cures that you have from previous year are cleansed before the 4th February 2018. Good shapes are items made from metal that are round, even a stainless-steel dog bowl is a good cure. Do not disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with gardens to this corner of the property should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work in the north in 2018.
The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen)‘ in Chinese, is one of the bad annual afflictions. It is a very volatile star. It has no gender and no trigram and is highly dangerous when disturbed. When disturbed, its malevolent influence brings disaster, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. Do be careful with it. Stillness together with metal cures can keep its negative influences at bay.
As we have so many negative afflictions in the north with the annual #5 yellow and the Three Killings in 2018, you must place a Salt water cure, Six rod hollow metal wind chime, Wu Lou and Six Chinese i-ching coins In a row and also place more metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative. Even a pendulum chiming clock in the north is very good and whilst this contradicts what I said about keeping the area quiet, the chiming sound of the clock is actually as important as the moving metal of the pendulum. In the old days, they would have had someone striking a gong quietly every 15 to 60 minutes. All these cures are essential and why we have included three of them as standard in all our 2018 cures and enhancers kit.
Another extremely imperative cure in 2018 and because the annual afflictions are so bad in the north, is to place a brass wu lou or gold coloured gourd in the north of your home or office to avoid severe problems. This cure really is one of the most protective cures you can use and also a powerful enhancer, for protection against legal problems, arguments, disputes and loss of wealth. An alternative cure is place some very heavy good quality round metal objects in the north in 2018, I do not give this advice so you have to buy from us, most of these cures and enhancers I recommend you can put together yourself.
Urgent repairs to your home or office in the north during 2018 will need a cure to prevent any negative consequences. You can place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the building and where the work is being carried out or ideally, contact a professional Feng Shui Consultant to select an auspicious date to start the work. Our Tong Shui software will also easily calculate the perfect time for you.
You MUST NEVER disturb the north inside or out by lots of drilling or knocking activities. So please be careful when you hang your metal six rod wind chime to control its influence in the north sector of your house.
You must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in the north as this will only cause harm and aggravate the #5 yellow. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.
If your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard is located here, this is good for you this year, because these areas are not used much and therefore the negative power is not activated, I would still place the cures though regardless of what room is located in the north.
Summary for the annual #5 star in the north in 2018:
Take extra care in the months of March, August, October and November.
Do not activate the north with loud noises, keep quiet and avoid at all costs building work or refurbishment. Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place a six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Introduce metal colours such as white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the north of your home or office quiet, avoid redecoration and building work in 2018 in the north part of your home or office and when you hang your wind chime try not to make so much noise with hammers etc, don’t worry about the noise the wind chime makes, this is all part of the cure, so when it is in place try and remember to knock it a few times a day.
recommendations and cures for the #5 visiting the north in 2018
- Avoid playing loud music in the north of the home or room.
- Do not decorate your room with red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily.
- Place a salt water cure in the north of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
- The six coins in row and salt cure are a crucial cure to place in 2018, please do not forget it.
- Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the north corner of the room if this is your bedroom.

Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien (Wu Qu) sits in the southwest palace in 2018
The 6 white star is a compassionate money star and in 2018, it has flown in to the southwest which is very good for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone who is involved with jewellery and raw minerals. If you have a main door or important room such as an office or living room in the southwest this year, this is very good and you can benefit from this as this influence can bring success, fame and wealth luck when enhanced correctly in 2018.
Although the #6 white star signifies accomplishment, if you have the annual #6 star located in a bedroom, it can cause problems with the liver and/or legs and you would need to make sure you introduce some water colours such as bedsheets or curtains for the year.
A crucial cure for the southwest in 2018 is a Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman. This is an extremely powerful and much needed cure and enhancer in 2018 for when the #6 flies into the southwest and a special cure is needed as we have the inherent energy of the #2 earth sickness star which can drain the energy of the auspicious visiting star although overall, the southwest is a good area during the year of the Dog and when activated with the Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman, you can enhance and protect wealth luck in your home and office.
Summary for the annual #6 star in the southwest in 2018:
Take extra care in the months of February, April, September and November.
Overall this is a nice area and even better if your main door or office is located here, keep area active with windows and doors open. Good colours are earth colours yellow. Place some real quartz crystal here or the hanging faceted sphere type; these are very good for activating the wealth and business side of this nice star.
recommendations and cures for the #6 visiting the southwest in 2018
- If this is your bedroom, a shade of blue or black in your furnishing or décor may help with health. A blue painting (not water scene) may also do.
- Place a Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman in the southwest of your home or office this year to enhance and protect wealth.
- Real quartz crystal is very good in the southwest for 2018 as is faceted crystal spheres.
- Avoid colours red and candles in the southwest in 2018
Tui 7 Red The Lofty Wind of Tui (Po Jun) flies into the east in 2018
The #7 mischievous red stars is a negative influence in period 8. The trigram Tui is also known as ‘Broken Soldier‘. This is a fighting star which cause problems if left alone. When combined with another untimely star, its negative nature denotes assault, deceit, violence and robbery. This year 2018 it falls into the wood element of the east Chen palace which places both stars in severe conflict and can cause many problems if left untreated.
The #7 Red indicates a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing especially in the months of February and August if not treated correctly this year.
If you have a main door or window in the east of your home or office in 2018, please make sure that you check the locks to make sure they are all functioning correctly and if necessary, upgrade the security in this area. Check over your smoke alarms in the east and make sure there are no fire hazards in this area for 2018. The Next step needed would be to place a Huaxianweiyi Sheng Chi Cure and Enhancer in the east of your home or office. This is a traditional and very powerful Feng Shui cure that works in a similar way to Chinese New Year couplets in the sense that they are used as a cure and enhancer for this unhealthy combination in the east in 2018, this combination is known as “puncture the heart sha” (穿心煞) and said to cause health problems with arms, legs and liver and also cause many legal issues, disputes, arguments and the possibility of robbery and theft in a home or business. This is one of the most important cures to place in 2018.
It is vital that the east is treated extremely carefully this year, which makes this Talisman a vital cure for this sector in the year of the Yang Earth Dog and why we have included it in all of our 2018 cures and enhancer kits.
If you have a main door in the east of your home or office in 2018, you should hang a Ba Gua wealth protection mirror outside for added protection in 2018.
I know that I mentioned this above but please remember to check over the security of your home this year, especially if you have a main door or window in the east of your home or office. Prevention is the best cure and it really pays to take a little time making sure all of the locks are strong and the windows are secure. Do not display any valuable items on windowsills as there is a risk of a passer-by seeing a quick opportunity.
It pays to be wise and avoid taking too many risks for there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses.
The best advice I can give for the east in 2018 is to check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors in the east.
Summary for the annual #7 star in the east in 2018:
Keep the east quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and quartz crystals. If you have an office or door in the east be careful of people trying to deceive you, robbery, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust.
Recommendations and cures for the #7 visiting the east in 2018
- You should also use more blue in your decoration. You can introduce the colour with cushions, rugs, bed covers or doormats.
- Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it.
- Avoid candles at all costs.
- Place a Huaxianweiyi Sheng Chi Cure and Enhancer in the east of your home or office in 2018 for protection
- Install or service/upgrade smoke alarms and security systems.
- Do not hang metal wind chimes here.
Ken 8 White has flown into the southeast for 2018
The #8 Ken white star is the most auspicious governing Flying Star for the next seven years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the Flying Stars (Xuan Kong) system and in 2018, the annual #8 is located in the southeast so if you have a main door, office, bedroom or any other important room that is used frequently in the southeast this year, this is great news for you and you should make the most of this lovely influence.
Unfortunately, this is somewhat spoilt as we have the annual affliction, Sui Po located here for the year and also the southeast is a wood element which puts the two elements in conflict with each other although I will advise you below on how you can make the most out of this influence in 2018. A lot of websites will tell you that the annual #8 will cause problems when these two elements meet in the same palace although in my opinion, we can make the southwest an auspicious area when treated correctly with certain cures and enhancers along with treating the area carefully so that Sui Po is not aggravated.
As with every new Solar year in Feng Shui, it is vital to place a very special Master cure and the most powerful and important cure and enhancer in 2018 is called a jiébàopínchuán Master cure and must only be used in a Yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu) year; this powerful amulet and protective talisman cure is used during Yang Earth Dog years to enhance the annual #8 wealth star. This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2018, especially for the eldest daughter or female of the home or office if a daughter is not present although equally needed for males especially for wealth. This is the most vital cure for the whole of any home or office which is why we have included it in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
If you have an office or main door in the southeast in 2018, wealth, fame, romance, prestige and distinction can be expected, even if you do not active it. This star brings good fortune and exciting times, even with the conflict of elements. It brings good fortune and exciting times even with the conflict of elements, although you should place cures here if the eldest daughter or youngest son of a home sleep or spend a lot of time in the southeast in 2018.
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2018 is the southeast. You should treat this area the same as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any loud activities. If disturbed, this area can and usually will cause immediate health problems especially with regards to the elderly, so please be very careful with the southeast of your home or office this year. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Dog year, you need to display a Cai Leishui crystal talisman and a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure which works to appease Sui Po and also enhance the annual #8 in 2018 which we have included in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers Kits.
If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are very good for this southeast palace this year. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz double hearts or a pair of Mandarin Ducks this year.
Whilst wealth is forecasted in 2018 for the southeast, beware of overworking as this can cause you health problems. The additional work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular, stress related resulting in high blood pressure or kidney problems.
Another crucial cure for the southeast in 2018 is the Cai Leishui Crystal talisman. This cure and enhancer talisman is an excellent enhancer for wealth in 2018 and should be placed in the southeast, which in 2018 can bring in good luck and supposedly eight different types of blessings. This beautiful glass crystal teardrop is of the highest quality and produces amazing results as well as creating the most amazing display of rainbows if placed near a sunny window.
Do not place heavy metal in the southeast this year, as it will weaken the good earth.
This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area for 2018 so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc in the southeast. If you use symbolic cures this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth or a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.
Summary for the annual #8 star in the southeast in 2018:
Take extra care with health in the months of March, April and November.

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