What do we do with this information?
In every house, 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.
Xuan Kong Flying Stars November 2016:
From 7th November to 6th December 2016 is the tenth month of the Bing Shen year (Yang Fire Monkey year) with the ruling energy of #2 in the central grid. the Monthly Flying Stars match up with the Annual Flying Stars which can either double the luck or problems in each area this month. I have included the Annual Synopsis for 2016 as this is a very in depth analysis of the Monthly Stars that are present this month.
Kan 1 White In 2016 resides in the southeast.
In element Kan #1 is water. In the physical body, it is the ear. Internal organ it is the kidneys and it is also blood.
Kan water #1 (tan Lang) has flown into the southeast which inherently is a wood location for the year of the Monkey indicating that with water enhancing the wood of the southeast this influence present in the southeast will be good and bring new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and scholarly pursuits when activated correctly. The intensity of these attributes will differ month to month according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars in the southeast. If you have a main door, bedroom, office or any other important room in the southeast of your home or office, this is very good news in the year of the Monkey.
To enhance academic study, you should encourage your child to study in the southeast part of their bedroom; you can also place a gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue as he protects wealth and also creates wealth in 2016. Tsai Shen Yeh must be placed in the southeast of whatever room is used as he is a protector and enhancer of wealth in 2016.
A good colour scheme to use in the southwest this year is blues; this colour can be introduced by means of bedding, throw-overs, lampshades, pillow covers, rugs etc.… If a bed is located in the southeast part of the room, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside the bed.
You should place a Sheng Chi cure and enhancer in the southeast this year to enhance the #1 wealth star. This important cure and enhancer is a very little known talisman charm and the reason it is called “Sheng Chi” is because it creates a cycle of energies and works in synergy with the earth’s cosmic breath with a very special quartz crystal, Chinese i-ching coin, rice and small amount of earth soil taken from the land around you combined with a special engraving at the bottom of the metal vessel. This cure works in synergy with the master cure that it is placed in the southwest.
Another vital cure for the southeast this year is the Long Baota Dragon Pagoda Protection talisman The Protection talisman is an extremely powerful cure and enhancer for the Annual #1 star that flies in to the southeast in 2016. The southeast is a lovely area for wealth in the year of the Monkey and in order to make finances as prosperous as they can be this year, we need a powerful metal Cure to enhance the #1 Annual water star. The Dragon Pagoda protection talisman has many different parts to the cure and when combined, this makes an extremely powerful Cure and enhancer for wealth, education, study and overall good luck cure when placed in the southeast in 2016.
If you own or work in a business that is involved with retail sales or a business that is a florist or similar such as a garden centre, your business can do very well this year if you activate the southeast area. Things can go especially well if you have a main door here during the year of the Monkey.
Curved furniture is very good in the southeast this year. A good colour scheme to use in the southeast this year is blues; this colour can be introduced in beddings, throw-over, lampshades, pillow covers etc… If a bed is located in this corner, the southeast part of the room, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside the bed.
- Place a Sheng Chi Cure and Enhancer in the southeast of your home or office
- A brass Wu-Lou would be good for a bedroom that falls into the southeast along with blue colours.
- When using furniture in the southeast, aim for something with a flowing design such as a vintage style bed or chair with a curve on the back
- Place a Long Baota Dragon Pagoda Protection talisman in the southeast of your home or office
- If this is a study, place creative enhancements like displaying an abacus, calligraphy set, artist tools like canvas, brushes etc.
Kun 2 Black In 2016, the Kun 2 Black visits the centre
The centre of any building in 2016 is not a very nice area at all and best left alone if possible, which is a lot easier said than done; the centre of my home is in the hallway and upstairs bathroom so not an easy area to avoid which is the reason why we write the advice on the cures and enhancers to be used each year as not everyone has the luxury of abandoning bedrooms or offices for a whole year.
Because it has flown into the centre palace for 2016, this can cause more problems than usual as the centre permeates around the rest of the eight palaces so it is very important to follow the advice below even if you do have the space to be able to leave the centre dormant for the year of the Monkey. In order to find the centre of your home or office, you would measure the length x breadth and divide by two, this may be an estimate depending on what type of home you have; you only need an approximate idea of where the centre is.
It is very awkward when a negative star flies into the centre of a building as it is usually an area that is open such as a hallway, living room or kitchen and hard to place cures. If the centre of your home is the middle of your dining room or lounge and you do not wish to have your cures on display, you can either place them behind a picture frame or decoration slightly out of sight or you could place them in a room upstairs. We receive a lot of emails from people saying that they do not wish to have their cures and enhancers on display which is fine as long as they still have open access to the air; what I mean by this is if they are behind an ornament, on a high shelf, behind a picture frame or under a bed it will still have a positive effect although it will be more effective in the open.
The best rooms to have in the centre in 2016 are rooms such as a bathroom, utility room, pantry, guest bedroom, cloakroom, dressing room, storage room or other room that is not used for long periods in the day.
If the centre of your home or office falls in a room such as a bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room, this will inevitably activate its malicious effects.
The #2 black Annual Flying Star can cause problems related to the health of those under its influence bringing with it sickness, disease, bad luck, stress, stomach and digestive problems, bloated feeling, gossip, back stabbing, family disharmony and distress. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4. Check on this page if you do not know your Gua number eightmansions.htm or if you have our Feng Shui software you can calculate your Gua and best directions.
You need to place a salt water cure, Wu Lou if you have one and also six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon in the centre to weaken the malevolent effects of the #2 star. Other good traditional cures for the centre this year are a metal singing bowl and also place more round metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative influence in the centre of your home or room, the salt cure and six coins are the most important cures.
Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the year. Make sure there are no red items, bright lights or burning candles in this area. Do not worry if you have these colours in the centre from permanent decoration such as sofas or paint on the walls, just introduce colours such as white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like.
More importantly, do not decorate the centre of the home with red colour or triangle shape items and most important avoid burning candles or leaving bright fiery coloured lights on for too long during the year.
Avoidance of this area is the best cure although I know this is hard so try and follow the advice and try and aim to keep the centre as quiet as possible during the year of the Monkey.
If you happen to have a U shaped home built around a courtyard and have the door in the centre, please aim to avoid slamming this door and if possible, aim to use a different door to enter and leave the home this year.
Summary for the centre of a building in 2016:
Do not activate the centre of your home or office with loud noises, aim to keep the centre quiet and at all costs, please avoid building work or refurbishment. Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place a Wu Lou, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours such as white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the centre of your home quiet, and avoid redecoration and building work in 2016.
- Hang six Chinese coins tied in red ribbon.
- 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 one cure that I always advise is to place some heavy metal dumbbells.
- Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.
- A metal singing bowl is very good as is a stainless steel Dog bowl.
- Avoid using red colour in this room and refrain from displaying triangle shape or fiery pictures.
- Avoid candles or bright lights at all costs.
Chen 3 Jade In 2016, the sound of the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the northwest palace in 2016.
With the #3 Jade Annual Flying Star entering the northwest in 2016, beware of possible theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers and legal problems.
In order to calm the effects of this star, you should try and keep the northwest of your home as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations.
To remedy the effects of this unfortunate star, you should use red decorative objects, candles, lamps and lights. A nice simple cure is a red or similar fire colour floor mat, rug or a table lamp with a red shade. You should avoid metal (metal colour is OK) to control this energy as this will aggravate it, restricting the beneficial influence brought by auspicious monthly stars in certain months and magnify its negative influence. If this is a room with a large metal bed or weight lifting equipment such as a home gym, please try to relocate this equipment to another room in 2016; if you are unable to do this, you should introduce red decoration in this room.
You should not have a water feature inside in this location during 2016 unless a professional Practitioner has advised you or you use our Feng Shui software.
Some clients of ours have pointed us towards books or websites stating that the #3 wood star is a good star in period 8 and in our opinion, it is still a very unpredictable star and you should not try and activate it unless you are qualified to do so or you have used our software. It will become more usable towards the later part of the 20-year period 8 cycle.
I have even seen websites and books recommending placing water here and I would strongly not recommend this unless you know what you are doing as incorrect placement of water in the northwest will invite arguments, divorce and legal problems without taking into account your land formations, period, mountain and water stars, please be careful.
Ensure that documents signed during the year are checked through thoroughly before committing oneself as most Chinese animals are at risk of making costly mistakes with paperwork this year although it does depend on their personal Chinese animal (e.g earth, metal, fire, wood, water Snake); for more information on this, take a look at our 2016 Feng shui Guide .
The influence of a Chen 3 in Period 8 denotes possible arguments, disagreement and in extreme cases, this can result in lawsuits, either as a petitioner or a defendant. Either case there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during 2016 especially if you have a main door in the northwest and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. You should also hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in the year of the Monkey in the northwest.
There may be bursts of irritability affecting those under this influence. If your office or bedroom is here, short temper and antagonistic are common characteristics in those affected by the #3.
A very important cure that you must use this year is a coiled Dragon statue (long zhui zhenzhu) as this will help to avoid legal issues, disputes and arguments; the Coiled Dragon will also promote fame and career; we have included the coiled Dragon statue in all of our 2016 Deluxe Cures and Enhancers kits. A vital cure for the northwest in 2016 is a Long Yu Quan Bi talisman which helps to protect wealth and avoid legal issues, arguments and disputes which is why we have included this standard in all our Annual cures and enhancers kits.
Do not take this affliction lightly. Do not disturb the ground of this area at all costs.
Northwest facing properties with front doors to the northwest must be careful not to allow the doors to slam and do not renovate or dig in the northwest for 2016.
To calm interactions:
- Place a light in the northwest if you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
- Do not hang wind chimes in this area of the house, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.
- Place a Long Zhui Zhenzhu coiled Dragon statue in the northwest of your home or office
- During hot summer months, make sure the fan is not located in the northwest.
- Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2016 and check smoke alarms.
- Place a Long Yu Quan Bi Talisman in the northwest for 2016
- Check through everything before signing documents if office is in the northwest.
- Try and keep this area quiet and do not disturb with loud noises.
- Try not to let children or noisy animals play in the northwest.
- Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well. If backstabbing occurs this year, focus on the northwest and make sure everything is as it should be
Sun 4 Green In 2016, Sun 4 Green sits in the west of the Lo Shu square
The Sun wood #4 star occupies the west palace for 2016, year of the Yang Fire Monkey and this is a conditional star although it is auspicious in Period 8 (2004 – 2024). The #4 annual star governs romance, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. If you want to enhance this wonderful star, you would use a yin water feature or introduce some colours such as blue or black or you can place photos of you and your partner/family. If you like to use traditional Cures and Enhancers, this is a good area to have a pair of Mandarin Ducks; Dragon headed Tortoise.
A yin water feature is fresh still water, ideally indoor bamboo shoots growing in a small amount of water or fresh flowers in super clean water. When using a Yin water Cure in the west in 2016, you should use a blue, grey, charcoal or black vase. You can also use just a normal bowl of water, whatever you use, the water must be kept squeaky clean as if it becomes stagnant even slightly it will cause you relationship problems. The water must not be moving though unless a professional Feng Shui master has advised you or you use our Feng Shui software.
A little know and extremely powerful cure and enhancer in 2016 and one that can only be used in certain years is by placing a cure known as a Xiang Xin Yuan wish and romance enhancer in the west. This cure will enhance the #4 romance and literacy/career star and at the same time dissipate the inherent metal energy of the west, this really is a lovely cure and enhancer at the same time.
If the main door to your home or office is located in the west in 2016, this 4 star can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the right cures are not put in place. Whether or not you wish to activate romantic opportunities this year, please read below. Having a door in the west alongside a Xiang Xin Yuan wish and romance enhancer can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel which is favoured in Monkey years and can bring fantastic results.
You should refrain from using both colours and elements that represent fire and/or metal. Fire and metal colours are: red, orange, pink, silver or white. If you already have these colours in the west this year, do not worry; just introduce colours such as blue or black in the way of a floor mat, cushions, tablecloth or such like.
As in every star, the #4 Green has a positive and negative aspect to its nature. Although this is a favourable annual star in 2016, 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 so please be sure to check back here at the beginning of the month to read our Monthly Flying Star Analysis or if you have the Academy software, check on the Flying Star detail section. You should treat the west as your relationship and creativity area for 2016 as it can be very good for you when activated correctly.
Summary for year: With the above cures and enhancers in place you should make good use of this area in the year of the Monkey, especially if you are looking to enhance relationships, mend troubled relations or enhance creativity, the west is a very good area for writers, artists, students and anyone that is related to the travel industry.
Avoid fire element and colours red, pink or purple in the west this year. Good colours are blue or black. Good place for an indoor Yin water feature (bamboo or fresh flowers, NOT MOVING WATER). If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes though; blue wind spirals are good here. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Spend time in the west if you want to enhance or repair romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
Cures and enhancers summary:
- Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
- For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added to the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
- Avoid displaying too much metal objects here especially large heavy ornaments.
- Fresh flowers or small pots of green leafy or flowering plants can be displayed in this spot of the house to lift the qi. Blue flowers are a good choice.
- If you have mandarin Ducks this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
- Place a Xiang Xin Yuan wish and romance enhancer in the west
- A Chinese or western calligraphy set is very good to place in the west for 2016 if you want to enhance creativity as an artist or writer or student, if you can place it close to where you study/write/paint.
- 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 or Mandarin Ducks is very good
The 5 Yellow In 2016, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy is located in the northeast palace
Every piece of advice that I have given over the last sixteen years always comes from the heart and I try to make sure that those who do not use traditional Chinese cures like a salt water cure or six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon still receive advice for free, easy to source alternatives. For the northeast in 2016, you should use plenty of good quality metal and make sure that all your existing cure and enhancers have been cleansed before the Chinese New Year. I am paying particular attention this year to the northeast as this is where my parents main door is located, am I worried about it? Absolutely not; I will though make sure that no one in our home will use this door and all the cures I recommend will be put in place.
In 2016, we also have Sui Po the year breaker present in the northeast which will make the influence harder to control without the right cures in place. It is imperative that you do not undertake any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in this part of your house or office between February 4th 2016 and February 3rd 2017.
Do not to disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with their garden in the northeast should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work. My parents had all their work to the main door carried out this year 2015 as in 2016 doing this work would have caused problems.
The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen)’ in Chinese, is one of the annual afflictions. This is a very volatile star with no gender and no trigram and is highly dangerous when disturbed so please apply care. 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.
In order to calm the influence of the 5 yellow, you should place a salt water cure, six rod wind chime, Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and also place more metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative.
Wherever the Five Yellow is, you must never disturb its position excessive noise such as digging, drilling or loud electronic equipment so please bear this in mind and be careful when you hang your metal six rod wind chime to control its influence in the northeast sector of your house. You should also place a Ba Gua mirror especially if you have a main door here, I will be renewing mine on February 4th without fail. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Monkey year you need to display a Yi Fan Feng Shun talisman which we have included in all of our 2016 cures and enhancers Kits
When dealing with the Annual #5 star in the northeast, you must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in this sector. 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.
The ideal situation for the northeast is if you have a bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard located here as 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 northeast.
Summary: Do not activate the northeast with loud noises; instead, keep quiet and avoid at all costs building work or refurbishment. Do not use colours related to the element fire such as red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed in the northeast when not in use. Vital cures to place in the northeast are a six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours related to the element metal such as white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the northeast of your home quiet, avoid redecoration and building work in the northeast 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 lightly a few times a day.
To calm interactions:
- Avoid playing loud music in the northeast of the home or room.
- Do not decorate your northeast area with red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily for 2016.
- Place a salt water cure in the northeast of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
- Display a Yi Fan Feng Shun talisman in the northeast to weaken the negative influence of the annual #5
- Move your bed to another corner of the room if possible even if it is a few feet away from the northeast corner, this way, you will avoid sleeping exactly in the northeast sector of the room and will weaken the influence slightly.
- Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the northeast corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
- Metal objects such as six Chinese metal coins tied in a red ribbon and/or a brass Dragon can be placed in this corner too. Avoid using red dragons.
- Do not place red objects, burning candles or triangular shaped furnishing in this sector.
- The most important advice I can give is to avoid disturbing this area at all costs. Any form of renovation that needs to be done should be delayed for another year.
- Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the year in the northeast.
- Replace or place a Ba Gua mirror if you have one in the northeast especially if you have your front door located here.
- If you have a main door in the northeast make sure you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut.
Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien 6 White (Wu Qu) sits in the south palace in 2016
# 6 White is a benevolent money star and as an annual star, its position in the south in 2016 is excellent for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the property market, so for those with a main door, office/study in the south will benefit greatly. Please note that the three killings is also present in the south this year and if this area is untreated it will cause problems.
You must not undertake any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the south part of your house or office between February 4th 2016 and February 3rd 2017. You should also not disturb the ground by digging holes, digging foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden.
If you have a main door or office located in the south sector in 2016, you should try to use another entrance although this is not usually possible so please try to keep noise down when using the door. However, whilst 6 White represents attainment, if your bedroom falls in to the south in 2016, the #6 annual star can cause problems with the liver and/or legs. If your bedroom is located in the south, place some blue cloth like a rug or duvet cover to dissipate its energy.
A very powerful cure and enhancer for the south this year is to place a Hotei Buddha. The Hotei can help avoid a lot of problems that can be brought on when the Three Killings visit the south. The Hotei Buddha really is a beautiful and powerful cure especially as it is one of the most traditional cures in Feng Shui.
Summary for year 2016:
The south is a mixed area for 2016 and should be kept quiet or avoided if you have your main door or office located here; try to keep this quiet and calm by keeping your windows and doors closed and avoid any loud noise. 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.
Enhancers and cures if needed:
- If this is your bedroom, a shade of blue or black in your furnishing or décor may help with health. A blue painting (not water scene) may also do.
- If you are a Gua #3 you should you should try and avoid this sector if possible, if not place a bowl of still clean yin water in the south.
- place a Hotei Buddha in the south this year to calm the effects of the Three Killings
- Avoid placing additional metal objects in this sector or room; however, a very good symbolic enhancer is a gold coloured wealth ingot, as it will enhance the wealth nature of the trigram Chi’en.
- Real quartz crystal is very good in the south as well as faceted crystal spheres.
Tui 7 Red The Lofty Wind of Tui (Po Jun) flies into the north in 2016
The 7 red star is a negative annual flying star in Period 8. The trigram Tui is also known as ‘Broken Soldier’. This is a fighting star. When combined with another untimely star, its negative nature denotes assault, deceit, violence and robbery. This year 2016 it falls into the water of the north.
#7 Red brings a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing in the north in 2016 and will need to be handled with care. This will be particularly so if the combination of the facing and sitting stars of this sector suggest such a scenario. If you have had a Feng Shui consultation or use our Feng Shui software it may not be as bad, as the facing and mountain stars may be auspicious.
Security should be a priority if you have a door or window in the north of your home or office and you should take the time to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics.an important wealth enhancer and health protector for 2016 is the Long Zhen Zhu Talisman that must be placed in the north and is a stunning set of ten specially created auspicious I-Ching Coins based on the yang side with four Chinese characters and the yin side with a Dragon chasing a pearl (you must not use normal i-ching coins), the ten coins are hung from a red good luck pang chang mystic knot along with a Trigram Gua protection charm and tablet key with special colorations. Another vital cure is the Baohu Yizhi calabash amulet as this is a very powerful health and wealth enhancer and is included in all of our deluxe 2016 Cures kits.
I know I have previously stated this although it is really important that you take extra security measures especially if you have a front, back or side door in the north sector. Make sure doors and windows are fastened securely before leaving the house. Do not display valuable items on windowsills, which may attract the interests of passers-by.
As we have the #7 annual star in the north this year, it really does pay to be wise to 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 is check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors.
The best remedy is to stay away from this sector or try to use it less frequently although this is usually easier said than done. If you cannot avoid using this room, you should use more blue in your decoration. Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it and don’t forget that the negative influence of the monthly stars are usually of the earth elements.
Be careful of your colleagues stabbing you in the back. Sometimes this often goes unnoticed as it is done very secretly. One of the key features of having good Feng Shui is really being aware of potential problems and not just placing cures here and there to protect (talking myself out of sales as usual)
Summary: Keep area quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and crystals.
Summary for year:
If you have an office or door in the north in 2016, please be careful of people trying to deceive you, theft, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust. This applies to a lot of the Chinese Animals this year for more information on this, take a look at the 2016 Chinese Animal Predictions page here or consider our 2016 Feng Shui Guide for a much more in depth synopsis.
It helps if you can do a natal chart of all the other flying stars in your home as there is much more you can do to protect yourself, if you know how to do a flying star chart it is worth doing or maybe consider buying our specialist Feng Shui software, it is worth every penny and can save you from many disasters, you will not find any better than this software as it not just tells you where the problems are it tells you how to correct them or enhance the good areas.
- You should also use more blue in your decoration. You can introduce the colour with cushions, rugs, bed covers or doormats.
- Place a Baohu Yizhi bottle gourd for wealth and health protection
- Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it.
- Place a Long Zhen Zhu talisman in the north this year
- Avoid candles at all costs.
- Install or service smoke alarms and security systems.
- Do not hang metal wind chimes here.
Ken 8 White has flown in to the southwest for 2016
The #8 White star is the governing flying star for the next nine years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying stars system and is located in the southwest . In 2016, Tai Sui is also located in the southwest and we are going to have to treat this area with care in order to make the most of it.
The #8 star can bring fame, wealth, romance, prestige and distinction in to others life when it flies in to the southwest although this year will require more care and the effects could be weakened or have an opposite effect if Tai Sui is disturbed
Do not place heavy metal in the southwest this year, as doing so will weaken the good earth and can cause more problems rather than enhance the area. Please do not take this affliction lightly in 2016, although the #8 star can bring a lot of positive attributes to those with bedrooms, offices and front doors in the southwest this year, if Tai Sui is disturbed by ground-breaking or loud noise, there could be problems which is why we have the most vital two cures in our cures and enhancers kits for the southwest this year which are the Chu Men Chien Tsai Master Cure to enhance all areas of life and the Guan Zhong Tai Sui Plaque which works in synergy with the Master Cure by appeasing Tai Sui so that the Master Cure can enhance the home or office. I can honestly say these are the two most vital cures for the southwest in the year of the Yang Fire Monkey which is why we have included both standard in all of our Annual Cures and Enhancers kits.
If you prefer to work with symbolic cures, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are good for this southwest palace this year. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer in the southwest this year is a pair of rose quartz double hearts or a pair of Mandarin Ducks.
One of the most powerful and important cures in 2016 is a Chu Men Chien Tsai Master Cure and enhancer. This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2016 especially for the Matriarch (eldest female) or any female of a home or office and more so if you run a business from home although equally needed for males especially for wealth and is only known to a few specialist Feng Shui Grand Masters and in the old days and even now in Asia you would need to employ a specialist Feng Shui Grand Master to call at your home or business where they would come along with a specialist zhuanke (seal carver) who would spend many hours carving the secret inscriptions onto an eight sided (ba gua) earth plate ( Pai da di牌大地) normally made from the finest quartz clear crystal, slate, polished stone, quartz or glass. The seal carver (zhuanke) was traditionally hired by emperors and the very wealthy and was seen as a symbol of great wealth and power and this took many years of studying to perfect this specialist art form.
If you have a southwest facing property with your front doors to the southwest, you must be careful not to allow the doors to slam when entering or leaving and do not renovate or dig in this area for 2016. If you have an office or shop door in the southwest this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible.
The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Guan Zhong Tai Sui plaque to pay respect and appease the Deity. By paying respect to Grand Duke of Jupiter, we can weaken or avoid the problems this can bring. This is really important this year and we have included the Tai Sui Plaque in all our annual cures and enhancers kits.
This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area for 2016 so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc in the southwest. If you use symbolic cures this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.
- Hang a faceted crystal sphere in this area of the house near the window or door. Hang it above head height and twist now and again.
- Place a Guan Zhong Tai Sui Plaque to appease the deity in the southwest this year
- The energies of the annual 8 can be activated by human activities.
Use this room as frequently as possible unless you have received professional advice against it.
- Place a Chu Men Chien Tsai Master Cure in the southwest, especially if this is where your front door, office or bedroom is located
- The red three-legged toad can be placed here. Make sure the toad is facing into the house and not towards the door and the coin is never taken out of his mouth.
- If your bedroom is here, you can also place an amethyst or any crystal items in the southwest of the bedroom to further strengthen the earth element of the benevolent 8.
- 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 southwest this year.
- Keep area active with open windows and doors (yang energy) although do not renovate or make loud noises this year.
- Keep the area outside and inside the southwest, southeast and south as clear, clutter free and open as possible, you need to let the auspicious Qi collect here and distribute inside and outside when this happens it is known as Ming Tang , this is a collection of Sheng Chi (auspicious energy)
Li 9 Purple You Bi Li 9 Purple is found in the east in 2016
The #9 purple annual star heralds celebrations so make hay while the sun shines if you have a main door in the east.
9 Purple is the star of future wealth and has an auspicious influence in Period 8. Career opportunities and promotions are probable and especially so if you have an office or main door in the east in 2016. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.
This is a good area in general especially for those in studies. If this is a family area (living, dining or a library), encourage children to study here as much as possible as this will greatly increase their opportunities.
Couples with a bedroom in this location will also enjoy good relationships throughout the year; in order to make the most of relationships this year, take a look at our 2016 Feng Shui Guide. 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 east part of your bedroom.
If you want to enhance fertility you can display peanuts in shells (groundnuts) or any seed products like black or red melon seeds (Gua zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’ and for the Chinese this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means the birth of many children. You should display them anywhere in the bedroom and of course be careful if anyone in the home suffers with nut allergies.
Although deemed as an auspicious star, the element of the annual #9 star in the east can strengthen the malevolent effects of visiting monthly stars #2 and #5 so please remember to hang a set of six chinese I-ching coins in a row on the wall here to weaken the undesirable influences of the monthly stars #2 and #5 which will visit in June and September 2016.
A traditional and powerful enhancer to use when the annual #9 visits the east is a Shuang Zhi Shang Pi Yao which can be very good for wealth, career and business. You should use a Pi Yao which has their left (yin) paw sitting on an Ingot Yuan Bao symbolising protecting your current wealth and attracting new wealth and good luck and to further create the perfect wealth enhancer and protector in 2016 and the other Pi Yao must have their right (yang) paw sitting on a wu lou calabash symbolising protection and avoiding bad luck in 2016.
Summary for year:
Be aware of the negative influences during the months of June and September 2016.
- Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.
- Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.
- Place a Shuang Zhi Shang Pi Yao to enhance wealth, career and business luck
- Symbolic objects such as a gold abacus or six Chinese coins can be placed here all year round to enhance benevolent influence and at the same time dissipate the malevolent influence by the visiting monthly #2 and #5.
- Coin sword hung with its hilt facing the front door or window in this sector can help ward off any external poison arrows as well as weaken the effects of visiting monthly stars #2 and #5.
