Clean your home for Chinese New Year 2019It’s a fact of life that some of the most challenging and tedious chores and tasks around our home, workspace, shop, and garden are often the most important. The wellbeing of our families including their health, happiness, good relationships and wealth is dependent on an orderly, harmonious home. In my house, I’m aware that each year, along with the usual household duties, I have to set up protection against the fury of the Tai Sui (Grand Duke), Sui Po and the Three Killings for the year ahead to make sure the year is as good as it can be. You can do simple tasks around your home to make sure that yourself and your family are as protected as they can be for 2019, year of the Yin Earth Pig (Ji Hai).

The Annual Feng Shui afflictions move around the different compass sectors each year in every building all around the world and in 2019, the annual afflictions are located in the west, northwest, southwest, and southeast. If you plan to do any work in these areas such as construction, renovations or anything that will create a lot of noise, it is important that you take care and read this article to ensure you avoid problems that are likely with Tai Sui, Sui Po, the annual 5 yellow, and the Three killings in 2019.

Throughout the year, we receive thousands of phone calls and emails asking where the annual afflictions will be in future years so that major renovations and tasks can be planned around their property. Being able to tap into this knowledge means you can confidently structure and plan renovations, or smaller projects, well in advance. Our Feng Shui 2019 software can easily do this for you enabling you to become super organised, empowered and be able to enhance all areas of your life. However, in this article, we will discuss the Annual afflictions for 2019 including where they are and how to avoid them.

Four cardinal Feng Shui directionsThe Three Killings which also goes by the name of ‘three sha’, is an exact translation from the Chinese ‘San Sha’. Although the perception of The Three Killings is associated with three earthly branches, its position is defined according to one of the four cardinal compass directions, namely North (water), East (wood), South (fire) and West (metal).

The four groups of harmonious alliances (trinities) separate the twelve earthly branches.  If we are to establish the location of The Three Killings, we must first explore the trinities of the earthly branches and their phases.

Please do not get the earthly branches confused as The Three Killings; they merely designate the position of The Three Killings. The Three Killings sits in the opposite cardinal direction (spanning 90 degrees) of the phase represented by the year’s earthly branch.

For example:

The 2004 earthly branch was the Monkey. The Monkey belongs to the trinity of the water phase to the north. As such, The Three Killings sits in the south. Ie. 135º to 225º.

Another example:

The 2005 earthly branch was the Rooster belonging to the trinity of the metal phase to the west which means that The Three Killings sat in the east during the year 2005.

How can I avoid the Three Killings in 2019?

The best option for avoiding the influence of the Three Killings in 2019 is to avoid disturbing the ground where the Three Killings are located which can be very difficult to do, especially if you have a garden in the west this year. Another way that the Three Killings can be disturbed is through loud noise such as slamming doors or a child’s playroom.

keep your door oiled in 2019

We get a lot of people asking what they can and cannot do where the Three Killings are located for the year; I’ve added a list of what you can and cannot do to give you a better idea of how the Three Killings can be disturbed.

  • installing a pond or swimming pool – not advised
  • using a main door in the west – not advised
  • replacing windows or doors in the west – not advised
  • Play drums in the west as loud as you possibly can – definitely not advised
  • drilling into walls (single holes for hanging pictures should be fine) – not advised
  • Lay a new patio or deck –not advised
  • planting small plants with a hand spade – fine to do so
  • using a main door in the west quietly, avoiding to slam the doors – fine to do so
  • watching television or listening to music at a reasonable volume – fine to do so
  • painting bedroom in the west – fine to do so

If you have a task that you’re not sure about, just send me a message in the comments section below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I am able to.

Generally speaking, you would be fine to renovate a bathroom in the west this year as long as you are careful not to make too much noise when carrying the work out; stick to manually removing the tiles carefully and install the new units with hand tools. Using an old-fashioned hand tool will help out a massive amount in the long run over a power tool if you have a task that needs completing in the west this year.

If you have an important room in the west in 2019 where the Three Killings is located then you must take extra care to prevent these disturbances and also place a Dual Dragon Heng Lung Fu bell to bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and also romance and relationships. If you read and follow the information below you can avoid many of the negative consequences such as ill health, loss of wealth, mishap, injury and, in extreme cases, the possibility of an occupant of the household facing a fatality.

The constant opening and closing of a front door can create a disturbance within the home or office if it is located in the west, northwest or southeast in 2019.  If your front door is regularly used and faces the same direction as the Three Killings or any of the other annual afflictions, extra care will need to be taken to avoid any of the negative consequences mentioned above so please be sure to oil the hinges and avoid slamming the door; if you have children or a shop door, it would help to install a soft close hinge.

The ideal and not always possible, especially with apartments and mid-terraced homes, would be to use another entrance or alternatively, you could install a soft close hinge for the door.  If this isn’t an option, then we recommend encouraging all occupants and visitors to avoid slamming the door and to calmly open and close it with consideration and respect.

A traditional Feng Shui cure for the 2019 Three Killings would be to hang a Dual Dragon Heng Lung Fu bell in the west from the 4th February 2019 to the 3rd February 2020.

Additionally, in 2019, if the front door of your home or office is in the west, northwest, southwest or Southeast, you should follow our 2019 annual advice and place a pair of Fu Dogs/Temple Lions by your door. Also, endeavour to avoid using the door if this is possible although I appreciate that this is easier said than done.

How can I avoid problems in my garden in the 2019 year of the Pig?

Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) Metallic lookThe traditional cure would be to place a six-rod hollow metal wind chime between the property and the place of disturbance while the work is being carried out in your home. An alternative would be to use any metal object but to get the full effect; the ideal cure would be to use the wind chime as the chimes resonate a sound which will help to weaken the ill effects but please be sure that you use a metal wind chime with six hollow rods.

Another traditional cure is to place a symbolic statue of deities, and one of the most popular deity is the God of Wealth ‘Tsai Shen Yeh.’ Tsai Shen Yeh is one of the most potent and popular Chinese Gods of Wealth who is usually depicted wearing a dragon robe and sitting on a tiger. He is also known at times as Lu Hsing, the Star God of Wealth.

The Tsai Shen Yeh carries a gold ingot and a sword on him. After he returned from a forest studying the Tao, he was seen riding along on the back of a black tiger in all directions and carrying a sword to ward off evil influences around him. He is not meant to be worshipped but is there to symbolise money and wealth and attracts the same into the house.

Is it better to face the Three Killings or sit with my back to it?

Facing the Three Killings in 2019If you can avoid it, you should never sit with your back to the Three Killings direction, and instead, you should sit facing the direction for the year, and in the case of 2019, this means to avoid facing the east when working at a desk etc.  We receive many emails and phone calls regarding this subject with many wondering if they should move their sofa chairs in the living room to avoid facing the Three Killings area.

Do not sit facing the east if you can avoid it.

Do sit facing the west if you can.

We always advise that you avoid sitting with your back to the Three Killings, but it relates more to prolonged sitting and not short, occasional periods. We suggest limiting your time to no more than two hours of sitting with your back in the Three Killings direction. Any more than this could affect your performance at work along with possible rumours and backstabbing with you as the target.

Chi Lin (male & female pair)

Changing your desk position is ideal so that it faces towards the Three Killings which for 2019 is the west but if this isn’t possible then I would recommend that you place a pair of Chi Lin on your desk facing the Three Killings direction to deflect any negativity.

Should I face Tai Sui or sit with my back to it in 2019?

Tai Sui, also known as Grand Duke of Jupiter and named the Year Star. Its position is signified by the earthly branch (Chinese animal) of the year.  The locations of the twelve earthly branches are: Rat (North) Ox and Tiger (Northeast) Rabbit (East) Dragon and Snake (Southeast) Horse (South) Sheep and Monkey (Southwest) Rooster (West) Dog and Pig/Boar (Northwest)

Tai Sui or Grand Duke Jupiter is totally unrelated to the planet Jupiter although there are some astrological reasons why it became the benchmark where Tai Sui was located, therefore it was also called Grand Duke Jupiter.

Unlike San Sha Three Killings, it’s not advisable to sit facing Tai Sui for prolonged periods, which for 2019 is in the northwest. Instead, you may sit with your back to Tai Sui for support.  The ideal situation would be to avoid sitting or facing Tai Sui completely.  If you have a front door or office desk that faces the direction of Tai Sui in 2019 (Northwest), an essential cure and enhancer is to place a Xie Tai Tai Sui plaque along with a statue of the Three Immortals in the northwest to appease Tai Sui, avoid the negative influences that could take place and also enhance the auspicious #9 annual star.

I must strongly advise you not to disturb the Northwest, the ground of the location where Tai Sui sits for the year . For the best protection in 2019, take a look at the 2019 Cures and Enhancers Kits. If you would like to find out the best seating positions and everything else to do with your Personal Feng Shui, you can take a look at our customised Feng Shui Report

The 2019 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:

2019 Annual Feng Shui afflictions

The Three Killings – west (232.5 – 307.5)

Where can I dig in 2019It’s essential you avoid making any form of deafening renovations or re-decorative work in the west part of your home or office between 4th February 2019 and 3rd February 2020. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes (small holes for planting 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 west in 2019, I would recommend that you place a Dual Dragon Heng Lung Fu bell here to bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and also romance and relationships. We take this very seriously at the Feng Shui Store as we’ve seen some pretty nasty events over the past 38 years when this energy has been disturbed.

There are also another two other rules that you should follow regarding the Three Killings in 2019. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back towards the west, it is better to face west instead.

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

Urgent repairs to your home or office in the west during 2019 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.

Annual #5 yellow Flying star – southwest (202.5 – 247.5)

Has flown to the southwest in 2019 and this is not good and the reason why so many specialist cures are needed. It is highly recommended not to disturb the southwest of your home or business with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work this year. When interrupted, the Five Yellow can bring disaster, sickness, lawsuit and significant loss of wealth so please be very careful in the southwest as it is very afflicted. For 2019 you must place a set of six Chinese i-ching coins tied with red ribbon, a six-rod hollow metal wind chime and a salt water cure to avoid the problems that are associated with the #5 yellow disaster star.

Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) – northwest (322.5 – 337.5)

What direction door is good feng shui in 2018Like 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 your property or front door faces northwest in 2019, much like the Three Killings, you must try to avoid doors from slamming when entering or leaving your home or workplace. You should avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs in 2019. If you have an office or shop door in the northwest this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Xie Tai Tai Sui plaque along with a statue of the Three Immortals 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. This advice is vital, and we have included the Xie Tai Tai Sui plaque along with the Three Immortals statues in all our annual cures and enhancers kits.

Sui Po (Year Breaker) – Southeast (142.5 º -157.5 º)

Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2019 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 Pig year, you need to display a Wen Chang Pagoda in the southeast which works to satisfy Sui Po and also weaken the annual #7 which we have included in all of our 2019 Cures and Enhancers Kits.

Where are the rest of the bad Flying Stars in 2019?

If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the northeast which is the location for the annual #2 for 2019, you should place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the building and where the work is being carried out.

If your bedroom or office is located in the west, northwest, southwest, southeast, south or northeast, then please don’t panic. There is much you can do to ensure an enjoyable, trouble-free year.  Start to prepare your 2019 cures and enhancers kit and be ready to have in place by 4th February 2019. If you are re-using old cures, then they will need cleansing which you can read how to do so by reading the article here

To further empower you with tools to enhance every aspect of your life purchase our Feng Shui 2019 software. This sophisticated and user-friendly software provides advanced analysis of every home or office facing any direction in all parts of the world.

How far do we take the advice we give with regards to the Feng Shui Annual afflictions?

In 2019, we will all be placing the relevant Annual 2019 Cures and enhancers in the southwest, northwest, etc., to help dissipate the negative energy that is present for the year. Am I concerned about the afflictions during the year of the earth Pig? Not at all, I am excited for the year ahead! Having good Feng Shui is equally about being aware of potential dangers and making allowances and by doing this and also placing cures, you can and will avoid many problems as avoidance and preparation are two potent tools in Feng Shui.

2019 Feng Shui Cures and Enhancers

What should I do if I need to repair a driveway or have a similar renovation?

Repairing your home in 2019If your garden is in the west, northwest, southwest, and southeast in 2019, obviously you should avoid disturbing the ground during the year. I realise that some things just can’t be left or avoided, such as an overgrown hedge or a collapsed pipe in the ground. If you can’t avoid building work or digging, use the following rules to reduce any harm that may result.

Back in 2008, we had to replace our large driveway that fell in the north, northwest and northeast. While some of these areas were affected, 2008 was the best year to do the work, and if we left it until the year of the Pig (2019), it would have caused us many problems as the northwest is where Tai Sui is located for the year. We employed extra builders (6 in total) to ensure the work was done over six days as even the monthly stars can have an influence. With placing all the cures in 2008 and also placing a six-rod wind chime in the NW, we had no problems at all. So, don’t worry too much if you can’t avoid work in the west, northwest, southwest, and southeast in 2019.

Place a six-rod metal wind chime between your house and building while the work is being carried out.

Start trimming or mowing from a different corner of the garden. Let us say your garden is in the west of the property where the Three Killings are located in 2019. You should remember to start your garden work from the east or north corner of the garden as this carries an auspicious energy in 2019.

The simple thing to remember is to AVOID doing heavy work here and no digging or breaking ground, I have seen some nasty repercussions created from disturbing these afflictions in a year way too many times.

196 thoughts on “Grand Duke, Tai Sui, Sui Po, Three killings in 2019 year of Pig

  1. I have a peculiar question… I’m a female Water Boar/Pig and my Kua number is 7… my bedroom is currently in the West of the home, with the window in the west as well. My bed is currently positioned so my head is South and my feet are North, however, I tend to sleep on my right side, putting my primary facing position during sleep toward the East, and thus while I’m sleeping, my back is to the West, which I read was advised against this year for things like seating positions, whether in a living room or an office space… Would it be wise to rearrange my bed (and other bedroom furniture) in order to accommodate this right-side sleeping habit, and have my head facing North with my feet pointing South? The door to the bedroom is in the North East of the room, however, which is why I originally placed the bed in the south in the first place, to be honest (so as to not have my back toward the door, which would also trouble me) Closet space is on the rest of the East wall, too, so my options are fairly limited… besides attempting to move out. Thank you for writing such an informative article, and also for all your help. ^.^

    1. Hi Kitty,
      That was a lot to take in…When you sleep you should have the top of youyr head facing one of your most auspicious directions so for you that would be NW, SW, NE or west. So the top of head should face one of these directions and the soles of feet one of the opposite directions.

      When you are sat a desk your nose should also point to one of these directions.
      I hope this helps
      Kind regards

  2. Hi Master,

    I hope all is well. I do have a couple questions, I hope you can assist me once again.

    My children’s bed headboards are facing West, they are both West group. The room is small, and it’s difficult to move it towards their other good directions like NE, NW and SW.

    Is this going to be a problem this 2019 or is there a remedy I could do? Their bed is also currently not against a wall but with a big headboard. Kindly let me know your advice.

    As for me, I am also a West group person, but my headboard is in the North. I am a Rat born and my wife is in the East group, we figured this could be the best way we could reconcile our directions. Is this good?

    Thank you and kind regards,

    1. Hi Jay,

      I would suggest placing the annual cures for the west. It will be fine for your children to have their headboards facing the west this year.

      Your facing directions depend on your Gua number. If you click the link below, you will be able to calculate your Gua number and best directions to face.

      I hope this helps, Jay.

      Kind regards,

  3. Hi Daniel,
    My house is facing north and the garage is in the NW section. Will Tai Sui be activated by the daily opening of the garage ? If so, what would be the cures.
    Also all of our bedrooms aren’t in a good location in 2019. SE, S, SW and W (5-2 permanent energy and The 3 killings). I’m a female rooster (1981) and 2 kids (girl and boy) sleep with me. Which room would be the less affliction? Which direction should I place my bed.
    Please advise.

    Best Regard.

    1. Hi Pam,

      I would make sure the doors hinges are well oiled and maybe have the door mechanism serviced if finances allow. I’d also introduce a Tai Sui plaque in the northwest this year to appease Tai Sui.

      All of the areas have different energies and can affect different people. I would suggest reading through the page in the link below and decide which room is best for you, depending on your current situation.

      I hope this helps, Pam.

      Kind regards,

  4. Hello,
    Does lighting matter in each areas of Grand Duke, Tai Sui, Sui Po, and Three killings, in terms of brightness? Also would the colour of the lighting be significant?

    1. Hi En,

      Depending on the Flying stars in each area, I would generally keep the area clean and bright with natural lighting to allow fresh Qi to surround the area.

      Kind regards,

      1. Thank you Mr. Hanna for your reply.

        I was referring to outdoor electric lights. I may have read somewhere that for certain areas, bright lights would be beneficial, but for certain others, bright lights would be harmful. Did you mean that the Flying stars were more relevant rather than Grand Duke, Tai Sui, Sui Po, and Three killings in such matter?


        1. Hi En,

          Electric lights will be fine to use.

          The stars and annual afflictions work closely together; for 2019, we have a wealth star in the northwest along with Tai Sui which means that we can still activate the wealth star but should avoid too much noise or groundbreaking in this area.

          Kind regards,

  5. Hello,

    For each of Tai Sui, San Sha, 5 Yellow, and Sui Pi, what should one do if noisy or groundbreaking work has occurred (ie. done before realizing the significance)? What could be done to reverse any mishaps?


    1. Hi En,

      Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done afterwards. I would suggest placing the relevant cures and colours in the area if you haven’t already done so that the areas are appeased.

      Kind regards,

  6. Hi!

    I have a big mirror and a degree in the west area considering the good stars that are there this year, but there are also the three killings. So, what is best? leave them there or move them into another direction and in that case, which would it be?

    1. Hi Annie,

      I would leave the mirror and cover it while it is not being used with a cloth or some sort of cover.

      Kind regards,

  7. Hi,

    I just bought a semi-detached house that requires complete renovation (stripping of built in wardrobes and wallpaper, full rewiring and re-piping (so breaking the walls), removal of two ceilings, replaster and repainting walls and ceilings, minor external brickwork, new pipework external to the house, demolition of a large garden shed, and lots of cleaning up of the garden as it has overgrown over 2 years of neglect.
    The front of the house faces NW and therefore the garden is in the SE. Most of the bedrooms are on the NW,W,SW,S parts of the house, so all of the affilcted directions will be disturbed when the works begin. What can I do to minimise the effect? I plan to move into the house once renovations are completed.

    I am very nervous as my partner did a full renovation in her apartment last year and had to demolish a built in wardrobe where tai Sui sat (no cure was put). She also just bought the place and was not living in there. Less than a week after the wardrobe was stripped, she faced a bitter argument with the neighbours which lasted for more than half a year and led to legal disputes and financial loss. I would like to avoid similar issues with my renovations.
    Your advice is much appreciated!

    1. Hi John,

      If you are not living in the home while the work is being carried out, this will have minimal effect on you. I would suggest leaving it a week or two for the energies to settle before moving in after the work is completed.

      I would place the cures and enhancers for 2019 once the work is complete and settled.

      I hope this helps and wish you luck with the work in your home!

      Kind regards,

  8. Hi,
    When you have a rectangle long piece of ground 81 x 25, how do I divide it and I get missing parts??

    We buy this house in march this year and some renovation is needed like a leaking roof.
    We will keep the rest as silent and soft as possible or delay it, when possible.
    One bedroom is a SW room, would that be a problem?
    Thanking you in advance.
    With kind regards,

    1. Hi Maria,

      I would map out a square chart similar to the image below.

      We have the negative 5 annual star in the southwest so try and introduce some metal colours into this bedroom for 2019.

      Good luck with the new home, Maria.

      Kind regards,

  9. I noticed the three Killings is in a 75 degree area. Does that include the NW and SW or just West? If it includes all west areas, why isn’t it 90 degrees?

    1. Hi Jill,

      This falls in between NW1 and SW3 although we advise this as west as it is not fully active in NW1 or SW3.

      Kind regards,

  10. I’m the year of rooster… I recently seen a horoscope for this year, that stated “3 killings in the west”
    What does this mean?
    To add… I live in Ohio, but planning a business venture back in Hawaii….wich is obviously west of me.
    Does that go together?

    1. Hi Bill,

      The Three Killings are located in the west sector of a building such as your home for the year. This would not be linked to you travelling to Hawaii so I would not worry about this.

      Kind regards,

  11. My bedroom is in the nw corner of the house and my head is in that corner. I am female metal monkey may 1980. Will i be affected badly this year? Should i switch rooms with kids?
    Me – metal monkey
    Son – tiger 2010
    Daughter – rabitt 2011
    Son – snake 2013

    1. HI PD,

      I would suggest staying in the room as if you were to have the children in there, their levels of activity could activate Tai Sui which will bring problems to the whole home. I would keep the room quiet and peaceful throughout the year and place a Tai Sui plaque to avoid problems.

      Kind regards,

      1. Hi Mr. Daniel,
        I am a female born in 1973. Which are the best directions that I shall face while sitting in my office desk this year? I am currently facing North, NW and NE. If I turn the desk so that I can face West, my back will be to the door. What other options would you suggest?
        Many thanks and kind regards!

          1. Thank you Mr Daniel!

            I was wondering about 2019 only. Since the Grand Duke is in NW, I was told it would not be good to sit in my desk facing that direction. However, it might be good to sit with my back against NW for support. So, I turned my desk around to not face NW, but SE, although that is not my best facing direction, anyway.
            If I turn my desk to face W, whoch should be good this year, then the door is behind my back.
            Please advice how should I proceed.
            Many thanks!

          2. Hi Anna,

            I would suggest facing the southeast rather than the west as it is better to have your back to Tai Sui for support than to face the Three Killings. I would also recommend placing a Tai Sui plaque in the northwest to appease Tai Sui this year.

            Kind regards,

          3. Thank you again Daniel!

            When sitting in my office desk, which one of these facing directions – Southeast, West, Southwest or South – be better for my career progress and getting a promotion this year?

            Kind regards,

  12. Hi Mr. Daniel ,

    Good Morning sir ,

    I have a lot money problem .past this 4 years .
    please help me to give a best lucky number .


  13. Hello Daniel;

    My daughter’s bedroom is in the west and she is a Rabbit (2011). Should we move her to another bedroom or placing cures would be enough? The other rooms we have are Northeast or southwest.

    Also my husband is a Monkey (1968), his office is in the northwest and he sits facing northeast. Should he moves his desk so he faces other directions?

    Thanks a lot for giving us your guidance.

    1. Hi Rosanna,

      If you have the cures in place, this will help a lot. If your daughter is at an age where she can be relatively quiet in her room, she should not notice a problem from the three killings.

      Your husband is facing his Sheng Chi direction so he should be fine where he is for 2019.

      Kind regards,

    2. I am a water dog and my family is wood sheep. What directions for each activity (sleep, eat, do works, cook, move around the house) for the water dog and wood sheep??? Thank you so much in advance. Please improvise.

  14. Hello – we will be beginning a whole house remodel including a new garage in the NW and an addition in the SW in 2019 into 2020 – what can we do to protect against Tai Sui and the 3 killings? We will have to disturb the ground and home in its entirety, The property is 6 acres and the house sits in the NW corner.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    1. Hi Debbie,

      If you have to carry out the work, I would just try and keep any noise as low as possible without tiptoeing around. If you can use a spade rather than a digger in certain places, that will help. I’d also recommend placing the annual cures and enhancers as this will help avoid problems that can materialise from the annual afflictions.

      Good luck with the remodel, Debbie.

      Kind regards,

  15. Hello-

    I have bedrooms in the W and NW. I planned on using the West room and having my kids occupy the NW, mainly due to the size of the rooms. But which is best for me to use this year?

    West group, metal tiger, 7

    1. Hi Mel,

      I would suggest having your children in the northwest although please make sure that they are peaceful in this area as children’s play can activate Tai Sui. I would make sure you place the relevant cures and enhancers in both the west and northwest for 2019.

      Kind regards,

  16. What lucky charms and colors to wear for 2019 if I’m a metal pig (1971). Also, My boyfriend is a snake (1977). How and what should I wear to protect from quarrels?


  17. Hi Daniel,

    My kitchen is in the West wall W1-W2 – stove, fridge and washer dryer.

    My bed headboard also is on the West wall on another room on the other side of the house and there is absolutely no other configuration I. This bedroom to move the bed.

    What cures do you suggest??

    I’m Metal Rat Gua 2 West Group

    Thank you
    An a

    1. Hi Anna,

      I would suggest keeping this area quiet as much as possible and would place a Yingxiangleiqie Sheng Chi Cure and the Hong Fu Qi Tian Talisman in your kitchen or bedroom. I would also introduce some blue or black colouring in the way of bedsheets.

      Kind regards,

  18. Hello I would like to know what is the best position for bedroom in 2019?I have one room in the west side of the house one in the south and one in the Northwest? I am a rooster (1981) my husband is a snake (1977).

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Cristy,

      I would use the northwest bedroom out of the 3 as we have the auspicious #9 star located here for 2019 and although Tai Sui is located here, if you are respectful and do not make noise here and have the relevant cures in place, you should not experience problems.

      Kind regards,

      1. Hello there, we decided to sleep in the NW room, I positioned the head of the bed in NW and the foot of the bed pointing south(backyard) part of the house. I would like to know every time my husband will sleep there he will have a night mare? Did I position the bed right? There was a door in the foot of our bed close to his side of bed. I would like to know if we did it right? If not how would I change it? Husband is a snake 1977 and I am a rooster 1981.

        Thank you!

        1. Hi Cristy,

          I would not recommend having your head pointing towards the northwest if you can help it as you should not face Tai Sui for too long at one time.

          Kind regards,

  19. When looking at the direction, do you go based on from outside the house looking in or from the inside? For example, from inside my house, my door is facing west. From outside my house, it is facing east. What is the direction of my door then?

    1. Hi Vicky,

      You would take the direction by having your back to the door. From what you’ve said, it sounds as though your home is west facing if you were facing outside your home.

      Kind regards,

  20. Hello.
    My bed is the Northwest, it is not a good direction for 2018 and 2019. We want also another baby. What can we do and which cures and I do?

    Best regards

    1. Hi Cindy,

      I would try to keep this area quiet as much as possible and place a Tai Sui plaque for the year. I will be releasing the 2019 annual advice in the next few weeks so be sure to check back.

      Kind regards,

  21. What should I do when my Best Direction – North – is visited by two malevolent stars this September? It’s my bedroom so I can’t move it. I put cures already and I even slept in my sofa last night, just to be sure, but sofa is in my Total Loss direction – South West (but visited by lucky stars this year and this month)

    Which is the worse of the two?

    It’s odd that I can’t find any answers no matter how I Google and vary the question, it’s all the same repetitive advise on how to cure/enhance annual flying stars but none with regards to contradictory issues as mentioned above. Lucky Direction w visiting malevolent stars. Worst Direction w visiting beneficial stars.

    1. Hi Amanda,

      As long as you follow the monthly advice and keep this area calm and quiet, you should not notice problems here. I would recommend keeping the tv low if you have one here and avoid any loud music for the month.

      Kind regards,

  22. Hello, I had just moved in to a new room 2 months ago which is in the Northeast. My desk area is facing the Southwest, my headboard is facing Southeast, and my closet is in the Northwest of my room. Also my door hinge is very loud when opening. What can I do to enhance my luck and avoid negative events this year? I’m a rabbit born in 1999.

  23. We have just decided to buy a new house and our realtor says we must renovate our master bathroom in order to put our house on the market. The bathroom is in both the NW and the North. I’m so worried that doing this would be harmful to my family.
    Does it help to leave the home whilst work is carried out? We’d like to start and finish the work in May.
    What is the best protection.

    1. Hi Patti,

      If you are just sanding down the walls and painting, this will not cause a problem although I would try to sand by hand rather than use an electric sander.

      If you keep the noise down, you should not see a problem with renovating.

      Kind regards,

      1. Thank you but our shower is leaking so we must pull up tile, replace shower and install a new vanity.
        We are moving in 2 months and need to sell our home ASAP so it can’t be avoided.
        Any advice would be so appreciated. I’m a nervous wreck that these areas need to be disturbed.
        Thank you!

        1. If you have no option but to do the work, I would go ahead with it and make sure you have the cures and recommendations in place.

          Good luck with the renovation and try not to worry too much about it as a positive attitude can go a long way 🙂

          Kind regards,

      2. I wish it were that simple. We had a major leak from our shower the NW. The tile floor, shower and vanity have to ripped out and replaced. There is no way for it not to be noisy.
        It will take 2 weeks and we will fly to Florida for a week of it. Is there anything we can do to mitigate the effects in the North and NW?
        Also, if we are moving out in June do we need to worry?
        Thank you – I’m so nervous about the I’ll effects that could happen.

  24. Hi Michael.

    I love your website. So much detail, hours of education. Thank you.
    Just wondering – we have a kitchen reno pending. South West corner of house.
    Is it ok to do this year, or best to do another time?
    So scared, we stirred up some terrible energies last year – do not want to do that again!

    1. Hi Linda,

      Thank you for the lovely words about our website.

      It will be fine to renovate the kitchen in the southwest this year as we have the #6 annual star here.

      the best months to do this are April, May, July, September, December, January or February.

      Kind regards,

  25. Hello Daniel!
    Thank you for the article.
    I’m a dragon (May 1988) my bed is in the NW (head nw-n, bottom towards SW-S) I already got ill three weeks ago, had bad luck with a doctor and now will need a surgery, this month. If I got it right pointing my head to the north is ok but should I change something to get better and make sure surgery goes well? I’m having a really confusing time and a lot of decisions to make and I’m not sure I choose right. Should I consider surgeon sign ?
    Thank you

  26. Hi,
    I bought a house and needed heavy renovation and my door is NW and taisui placement 1. What should I do as I cannot postpone the renovation.


    1. Hi Melody,

      If you cannot postpone, I would make sure you have your cures and enhancers in place for the year and place some good quality metal in the northwest this year, especially while the work is being carried out.

      Kind regards,

  27. Hi,

    I am a Dragon and my bed points to the SE, but my face and back face to the NW & NE depending on which side I am on. What do you suggest I do regarding this?

    1. Hi Katie,

      When you say your bed points towards the southeast, do you mean the top or bottom of your bed? Could you please tell me your year of birth and I’ll be able to advise you.

      Kind regards,

        1. Your best directions for the top of the bed to face are the north, south, east and southeast. This is where the crown of your head will point.

          Kind regards,

  28. I have started doing renovation in a bedroom since end of 2017 and the renovation straddles into 2018. The bedroom is in the North and the renovation cannot be halted. It is expected to complete by May 2018. Given the FS afflictions in the North this year, what can I do about it? I have also heard that given the great implications of the Five Yellow Star and Three Killings, any FS cures / preventive measures come with a risk as well, and in view of the complexity involved, self-preventive cures may not be advisable and if performed wrongly, may alleviate the negative consequences.

  29. Hi,
    May I ask for some advice? I have no choice but to renovate my leaking toilet piping in the SE? I live in a terrace house..What should I do? TQ.
    Jasmine C

    1. Hi Jasmine,

      I’d recommend trying to keep noise to a minimum and make sure you have your cures and enhancers in place for the southeast for the year as this should help you avoid any problems.

      Kind regards,

  30. Hi Daniel,

    Wondering why you say to observe date of February 4 2018 – February 3 2019.
    Chinese New Year begins on February 16, 2018. In 2019 it’s February 5.

    With thanks

  31. Hi,
    I am a female ox born in 1973. During 2018, os it better for me to sit behind my office table with my back against NW (window behind), or against SW (wall behind)?
    Thank you.

  32. This 2018 year I have a room that is facing all the North and Northwest ares. The Grand Duke will be in the NW and the three Killings will be in the North. My house has SE facing door. My question is… I am a Dragon and Three Killings will have the most issue with me in 2018.. Where do I put my studing-for-law-school desk to appease Three Killings and the Grand Duke? Do I sit with back facing the Grand Duke in the NW and just get a Plaque for the Three Killings in the N? Or do I sit with back to the Three Killings and just get a ChiLin facing the Grand Duke in NW?

    1. Hi Niacey,

      I would aim to sit facing the north this year as it is best to face the Three Killings rather than with your back to it.

      Kind regards,

  33. Hi Michael,

    Our main door is located in the NW area. Which cures or protections should i put?

    Hope to hear from you soon.


  34. Sit facing 3 killings/North direction in 2018- applicable to all regardless of their personal Kua (compass direction)?. My Kua no is 2 (west), my office just finished renovation where My Dept occupies West/NW of the buildings, my room is in SW. Somehow the best position for me inside the room is to face North so that I can see/watch my staff. Is the arrangement OK?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Gina,

      For 2018, I would sit facing north if you can as this will avoid problems with the Three Killings; if you notice a problem, I would look at moving to a different position.

      Kind regards,

  35. Hello, I live in a new apartment building where above and next to us they are still finishing the construction works. There is daily a lot of drilling and slamming with hamers. The apartment next to us is on the the north side. In our apartment there are no works done. But I wonder, does this also influence everything you mentioned above; even if it happens at the neighbors? Thank you!

    1. Hi Nina,

      This will have some influence although it will not be as strong as if it were in your own apartment. I would make sure you have your cures and enhancers in place for the year to try and avoid problems. I would not worry too much about this if you are following the advice for the Flying Stars for the year.

      Kind regards,

  36. Hi there,
    I live in Argentina, I have to extend our roof on our gallery, where the barbecue is. This is facing West.

    I am really concerned, what shall I do?

    Second question, can you help with our home bagua remotely?
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Marian,

      It can be extremely hard to avoid these kind of things so the best thing I would recommend is to carry out the work in November, December and January as you will have auspicious Flying Stars visiting the west and this will weaken the negative influence.

      We will be launching online consultations soon hat cover a home or office and the occupants. I can add you to the mailing list for when this is launched if you like?

      Kind regards,

  37. Please help. A week ago, I disturbed my study room (which is facing south) by removing the TV and some cabinets and placing a bed there to accommodate a relative who was staying over the weekend. On the same day, I cut and hurt myself badly in the bathroom. I didn’t know about bad feng shui (i.e. not to disturb/renovate the south part of the home) until some friends told me about it.

    Now I don’t dare to move the bed although I have no use for the bed now. What can I do? When can I remove the bed and place back my cabinets/TV the way it was before? Do I have to wait until 2018? Will my luck be bad for the whole year? I am very worried, and would really appreciate your advice.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Annaleigh,

      I would wait until the 7th August when the Flying Stars change for the month and we have the monthly #6 present in the south.

      I would not worry about moving furniture around in the south, Annaleigh although if you do notice any changes,try to introduce some metal in this room.

      Kind regards,

    1. Hi Mariam,

      I’m afraid it is hard to advise on something like this without visiting the property in person.

      I would recommend reading through all of the 2017 annual advice and also keeping an eye on the monthly advice also.

      When reading through the annual Flying Stars, take a look at east as this is where the primary wealth star is this year.

      Good luck in your new business, Mariam.

      Kind regards,

  38. We need a new roof. I am worried about tbe flying stars and bad luck. We have recently had bad luck happen in tbe south, south west of our property, my mother who lives with us fell and broke both wrists and injured her head.If I place 6 rod wind chimes in the north east south and west where or how high do I place them for the roof being re placed? Should I wait until next year to replace my roof?
    We have had a lot of water leaks in our house is this from the flying stars? Please help!

    1. Hi Donna,

      Sorry to hear about your mother, I hope she recovers quickly.

      It’s never really a good time to replace a roof in a home as there will always be sectors that contain negative stars and my advice would be to go ahead with it t a time convenient to you; ideally this would be done when you are away for part of the work although this is usually very hard to do.

      The 6 rod chimes can be any level in the home, just make sure that they are chimed daily to activate the cure.

      Good luck, Donna and I hope it all gets completed quickly.

      Kind regards,

  39. Hai.
    We bought an apartment and are planning to move in by november for which interior works are starting by september. Since these works involve lot of noise and shifting how can i avoid the negative effects of grand duke and five yellow and three killings…i am really worried about it..pls do reply

    1. Hi Jeena,

      If you are not going to be living in the apartment when the work is carried out, the risk of being affected will be hugely weakened.

      The best thing you can do is make sure your Cures and enhancers are in place for when you move in to the apartment and you should avoid problems.

      Good luck in your new home, Jeena.

      Kind regards,

  40. The flying stars talk about afflictions in the east where I should place cures here. Is this the eastern area of the home? Because my house does not match directions with the East outside as the diagram shows the inside to be where the east is. My front door which is actually South (Outside) should still be treated like the North like the diagram shows? I’m confused.

      1. I read the article, and my question is that since my front door is at the center in the career area,(which is called the North) but actually is in the South (outside) according to the compass, should my front door then be considered the South? Should I be reversing my metal area to the back of the house which is truly in the North outside?Thank you.

        1. Hi Teresa, if you do a google search for “Google Compass”, you will be able to put your address in and find out the geographic facing direction of your home and work the rest of the home out from there.

          Kind regards,

  41. Hi,
    Is it safe to place plants in east sector of the house in 2017?because I read in an article that foing so will disturb the energy in the east sector.
    Thank you.

  42. I dont know if my kitchen or my garage is in the southeast do I include my garage?I have always not included it and activated my kitchen as if it were the SE. My gargage is to the left of my kitchen and my kitchen is facing the south. If my Garage/laundry room is in the SE then how do I activate it? besides keep it clean what else? there is always tons of laundry in there on the floor. HELP

  43. planning to extended my house on the west area,and build 2nd storey on the existing build up area now.
    Would we be effected if we staying out the house thru out the renovation process?
    Does it still effected to the resident as well if we stay out of the house?

    1. Hi Henny,

      If you are not living in the home during the renovations, this will not effect you personally. I would recommend hanging a 6 metal rod wind chime where the work is being carried out. Good luck with your extension, Henny.

      Kind regards,

  44. Hi! Please help. I have two working table in my office. One is located in the East where i do my daily transactions and the other one is in the exact opposite which is West where i do my important things. What cure should i put in both tables? Thanks.

    1. Hi Jayjay,

      I would recommend a Tang Jie Tai Sui plaque for the west and a Cai Yuan Guang Jin Master cure for the east this year.

      Kind regards,

  45. I have a tree on the outside(in the southeast) that has been leaning on my fence causing to it to cave in. I am thinking about removing this year but after reading the post I am hesitant. I am a rabbit and my husband and daughter are born year of dog. Is it better to defer it to next year? Next year is also the year of dog, will that be offensive for Tai Sui? Please help! Thanks.

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      A lot of the time, it is very hard to avoid major work and when this happens, the best thing to do is hang a wind chime between the property and the work being carried out.

      It is always best to carry out the work in a certain area when there is an auspicious visiting monthly star which I have listed below you to make sure you can minimise problems.

      southeast – march, may, august, september, october, december

      I hope this helps, Jennifer and good luck with the tree.

      Kind regards,

  46. Hi,

    I have a bathroom with a washing machine in the south. Should I be concerned about the noise that it makes when working?

    Thank you for your awnser and a very informative page!


  47. Oh dear. this year we have a HUGE amount of digging to do all over our property as we are putting in the water, sewer and power lines. Only the foundation is in so far on the main structure, which is a combo garage with an apartment over it. Maybe I need some very large 6 piece wind chimes. Otherwise this makes me very concerned. What do you think?

    1. Hi Lin,

      A lot of the time, it is very hard to avoid major work and when this happens, the best thing to do is hang a wind chime between the property and the work being carried out.

      It is always best to carry out the work in a certain area when there is an auspicious visiting monthly star which I have listed below you to make sure you can minimise problems.

      southwest – march, june, july, august, october, december
      south – april, may, june, august, october, january
      west – march, april, june, august, november, december, january
      northwest – march, may, july, october, november, december

      I hope this helps, Lin and good luck with the work.

      Kind regards,

      1. Thank you! We were intending to live on the property this year, but we were hoping to sleep in a trailer, with the kitchen in a shed and outside shower and a small toilet. The tool shed will see a lot of activity because the work supplies are in it, and that kitchen. Door faces south east. The trailer door faces roughly north west or south east. We can move the trailer to make the main door face better ways. Is there a best way? My husband and I are west people and 8 White.

        Also, wondering where do we put cures? We are building the main structure this summer. Do we put cures In the trailer where we sleep, in the tool shed, or out on the property where we are digging in EVERY DIRECTION that there is!

        I placed the main building so it will be a Combo of Three house. Had to fight my contractor for that. He didnt like the angle, but it’s not his house!

        Your site is wonderful! Thank you SO much!!!

        1. Hi,

          You will not be affected from the noise and digging if you are not in the home yet so I would not worry about placing cures before the home is finished and you are living there. You would place your cures in the trailer as this will be your living space while the work is being carried out.

          If you can, i would move the trailer to face west.

          I hope this helps and good luck with your new home!

          Kind regards,

          1. Thank you SO much Daniel! This post above says not to face towards the West because it will anger Tai Sui, Feng Shui is VERY confusing! But I can face the door of the Airstream to the west.if that is best. It will Have to be in an area where it is at risk from being crushed by falling trees. (one just fell yesterday, they fall regularly, about two or three in that area per year.)

      2. Hi Michael, thank you for the answer! But I am confused, because the work being carried out IS building the main house. There is no home there. We will sleep in a trailer, eat in the tool shed and shower outside. So not sure where to put cures? In the trailer, the tool shed or just back in the woods?
        Thank you – wonderful website!

  48. Hello, i have a SE bedroom, currently bed backs up to east against window, as i am trying to avoid South. the only 2 locations for bed is East or South. my door is in NW corner. I am a rooster 23/2/69
    i am not sure how to fix this issue. do i move bed to south or stay in east under window?
    thank you for your help


    1. Hi,

      If you are renovating in the northwest and south, the annual #5 and #2 will be affected here and can cause problems. I would recommend placing a salt water cure in these areas for the year and also hang a windchime when you are doing work in these areas.

      Kind regards,

  50. Hi
    I am a wood dragon
    My husband is a water rabbit
    Our daughter is an earth tiger
    Triple whammy 2017
    Could you send us our predictions?

  51. I need to remove a hedge and replace it with a fence. It is in the south west. Would it be suitable for me to hang a metal wind chime in my porch (which is in the west?). Also, is it OK for gardening to be done in the east? I cannot avoid the maintenance during the summer. I am new to feng shui and am confused by your comment about avoiding candles in the bedroom. My bedroom is in the east / southeast / south, must I completely avoid candles this year?

    1. Hi Kim,

      If you have to carry out noisy work this year in an afflicted area, I would recommend hanging a 6 metal rod wind chime between the work and your home.

      You can have candles in the west and east in 2017.

      Kind regards,

  52. Please advise me! My kitchen is at west so i have to coock every day, will this be a problem for the grand duke of jupiter? What can i do?

    1. Hi Maria,

      I would not worry about having your kitchen in the west unless you are constantly banging pots and pans against the work tops all day. Just be sure to have the cures and enhancers in place for the year and read the advice for the west this year.

      Kind regards,

  53. Hi, thank you for this article! I wonder if you could just advise me please. We are having carpet laid on our stairway and upstair landing on the 13th Feb. Since this is the centre of our home ALL sectors (apart from the SW) will be affected in particular the NW and W. Only a very small area of the E and S will be touched. We are planning on putting up wallpaper and re-painting before the carpet goes down. I have recently purchased your software (which I love) and also the deluxe cures and these will be placed on the 3rd Feb. Is there anything more you can advise? Where would we hang the wind chime to cover the affected ares? Many thanks in advance! Amanda

    1. Hi Amanda,
      I am so glad to hear you are enjoying our software, our pride and joy.
      With the work you described which is very similar to what i have just done in my house, you do not need to place any wind chimes as the work is very light.
      If this changes and the work requires more heavy work like intensive chiseling etc then hang a six rod metal wind chime in the area where the work is being done.
      Hope this helps and good luck with the work
      Kind regards

  54. hello, if i already have a three celestial key chain, is it okay to still buy a tai sui card and a pi yao? Will the pi yao clash with each other?

    1. Hi Michelle,

      It will be fine with this kind of noise and refers more to prolonged loud television use or banging noise from a home gym or construction.

      Kind regards,

  55. Hi Daniel

    I would like to know if there is any amulet or anything I can get my fiance. He is having hard time in his career right now. May 24, 1962. Thanks!

  56. HI Daniel,

    My apologies for the typo error, it should read “Tai Sui” and not Tao sui (referring to my earlier comment sent on Jan 16, 2017.

    Thank you

  57. Hi Daniel,

    My husband’s date of birth is Oct. 28, 1975. That makes him a Rabbit and a direct conflict with the Tao Sui. We bought a Tao Sui Plaque however, I do not know which side of the bedroom (N, S,E,W) I must hang or display it.
    I hope you can help me.

    Thank you.

  58. The ad on this website causes the entire website to jump every few seconds. This makes it very very hard to read. Eventually i just had to give up. Really wish you would lose the ad or fix the visual hiccup.

    1. Hi Chrys,

      Thank you for pointing this out to us. I have made some changes on the backend; would you mind checking if that is any better?

      Thank you.

      Kind regards,

  59. Hi,

    Can you please confirm how long will it take to deliver in the philippines and if it will be sent to the the address and not in the post office.

    I will be back to Qatar on 16th of January. Kindly, confirm if its best to send it in the philippines or Qatar.


    1. Hi Jozell,

      Delivery to the Philippines usually takes around 14 working days so I would recommend having the order delivered to Qatar. Depending on your local delivery service, the order should go to your selected address.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

  60. Hi read the articles and i just want to know what amulet should i wear this 2017 my dob march 24, 1981. Im a female

    1. Hi Marlinelle,

      I would recommend keeping a jade charm of a dragon with you as much as possible or a gold plated dragon talisman as this is your Chinese animals secret friend.

      Kind regards,

  61. Hello.
    just wondering if it’s disrespectful to place Tai Sui cure for a rooster 21/5/81 in the kitchen? As that’s where the east is in my apartment?
    Also: living room sits in the east and my bedroom is S/E
    thank you for your guidance

    1. Hi Todd,

      Placing a Tai Sui cure in the kitchen will be fine and can go in any room.

      I hope this puts your mind at rest.

      Kind regards,

    2. I also read, correct me if I am wrong, that you can place the Grand Duke’s favorite animals, Pi Yao, in the room of the Grand Duke facing him in the event that you cannot place Pi Yao directly opposite in home facing that same direction, in order to appease the Grand Duke.

  62. My spouse and I are gua 2 and I am a rooster female. We have a door facing North and that can not be changed but my question is this:

    In 2017 the Five Yellow is in the South and so is our bathroom. Can I place a hollow six rod windchime there as a cure? I will add a scc if needed there, do you recommend an scc in the bathroom?


  63. Hi there feung antimatter. I would like to know an amulet I should have in year 2017 as Tai Sui will be present on 2017 to avoid any conflicts. I will be moving to other place and planning to get married by next year too. My DOB is 06-Oct-84.

    Your response is highly appreciated. Thank you

  64. Hi I have my laundry closet in the south and recently had my water heater fixed (noisy issue), i also have my home office in the south west with my back to the east. Should i turn my desk to face south or east for the most benefit/cure of the strange energy? Thanks for any reply 🙂

    1. Hi Valentina,

      I would need to know your DOB before i could accurate advice, message me back on here with details and i will help you.

      Kind regards


      1. Also, apparently there is an aspect in the NW that is inauspicious to dig/disturb the dirt. My landlord had to fix a clogged gutter drainage pipe this year in that sector of the home. My DOB is 9/10/82. It just seemed strange that I noticed both of these aspects and I am relatively new to the practise. Thanks for your insight.

        1. Hi Valentina,

          You are a water Dog Trigram Chien and your most auspicious direction to face are west, NE, SW or northwest, personally i would try and face southwest for the remainder of this year.

          Hope this helps

          Kind regards

        2. I agree with M. Hanna about facing or backing good directions. I am also an East/West group person and although I cannot place certain furniture facing good directions, I first and foremost wont face the Grand Duke or back the Six Killings and as a secondary good directional principles.

          I was also surprised that water which is to be placed in SW this year can be placed in the East in 2017. My dilemma was the bathroom in the South where the 5 yellow is going to be. I have ordered a six rod hollow wind chime for that room.

          1. Hi Cosi,

            Great news to have a bathroom in the south in 2017, just make sure you hang the chime along with a salt cure and six coins tied with red ribbon and avoid any renovations in the south.
            Kind regards

  65. We are planning to purchase a north facing home but the south portion of the house has a huge empty lot and now being dug up for new developments for new homes and streets. What can we do to reduce the harmful effects of the digging and loud noise from the construction work?

    1. Hi Agnes,

      I would recommend hanging a six metal rod wind chime in between your home and the construction work. Depending on the distance between your home and the construction work, this should not cause a problem.

      Kind regards,

  66. Is there a reason my question (#14 above) was skipped? The reply was blank! It\’s been over 2 months and I waited patiently. The question that came after mine got replied in 2 days! Help!!

    1. Hi Carol,

      Apologies for not replying to your comment. We get several hundred spam comments every day and genuine questions can sometimes get lost. I found your original question using your email address and can confirm that if you avoid loud tools and stick to spades and shovels, this should not cause a problem as the problems occur when you are using diggers, chainsaws etc.

      Kind regards,

    1. Hi ML,

      I would recommend removing the water and replace with colours associated to blue such as blues, blacks as it is only virtual water and will work well in this area.

      Kind regards,

  67. Hi, thanks for all the helpful information. We do gardening a lot. My question is: in the NorthEast corner, I have 2 small trees that died from the cold winter. I would like to replace with 2 small trees that are more cold hardy. Can I do it in 2016? or must I wait till next Year?

  68. Also, please can you advise me regarding the North West. For quite some time I\’ve had no choice to put my cooker there and after various reading up on feng shui – I can understand that this is apparently worse place for cooker. However, through reading hints and tips, some say have a black cooker paint the wall blue! or even put earth (perhaps ceramic plates) in cupboards above cooker. I\’ve tried all of these and something feels better. However though I now hear in 2016 it is better to have fire there! Now with black cooker I understand that water and fire are mixed! Along with my black kitchen tops and wooden cupboards, please could you advise us on this! Blessings Kazi

  69. Hi,

    Please could you advise me on the North East sector which lands in my garden this year. As my house has the North East sector missing (Lshaped) the North East lands in my garden in 2016. My questions would be – Can I place salt water and 6 Chinese coins with red ribbon in the garden? Can I still sit in my garden in the summer? Is it still ok to mow my lawn? Blessings, Kazi

    1. Hi Kazi,

      The Salt Water Cure and Six coins in a row cannot be placed outside unfortunately. As your home is an L shape, you have a missing sector which would avoid some of the influences in the northeast this year.

      You can still use your garden in the summer and mow the lawn although it is best to mow away from the home so you would start with your back to the home and go away to the end of your garden.

      Kind regards,

  70. Hi Feng Shui Web,

    Great post! I have need your kind advice please.

    Next year, after the Chinese New Year, the toilets in my home will be undergoing renovation. The toilets occupy a bit of the Southwest sector, and mostly the West sector of my home. The renovation is a total remodel of the toilets – floors and walls will be hacked and replaced by new tiles, toilet bowls and sinks will be hacked and replaced by new ones. Some piping works will be done, too.

    Also, the main gate and door (facing North) is being replaced with a new and better gate and door. It will take a few weeks to complete. The renovations are part of a government initiative and is compulsory for all. So I cannot stop it from happening.

    May I know what remedies can I use for Southwest and West sectors? Do I have to do anything for the main door too?

    Look forward to your expert advice.

    Thank you.


    1. Hi Timotheus,

      If you are unable to put the work off, the best thing you can do for the southwest is to place a plaque of Tai Sui to appease him and weaken any negative influences. I know this will probably not be possible, but I would ask the builders to keep noise as quiet as possible when working on the bathroom and gate.

      I would also hang a 6 rod Metal wind chime where the work is being carried out as this will help calm the influence while the work takes place.

      Things like this cannot be avoided most of the time and as long as you check over the monthly Almanac and try to select a good date to start construction, it should not be too bad.

      Good luck with the renovations, Timotheus.

      Kind regards,

      1. Hi Daniel,

        Thanks so much for your reply. Great advice! I will do them.

        Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2016!

        Blessings to you and your loved ones.

    1. Hi Muthalib,

      I tried to translate this using google although it did not tell me your direction of your home.

      Could you please try to translate the direction to english for me, thank you.

      Kind regards,

      Hola Muthalib ,

      Saludos cordiales,

  72. Hello, we are planning to remodel our home along the southern side so SW area where Grand Duke resides this year will be torn apart. I\’m concerned of possible negative repercussions. I don\’t see what remedies I can use in this case since the whole back wall will be removed to open the space up. Construction should last a good 4 months plus. Any suggestions.

    thank you,

    1. Hi Samaki,

      If you are not living in the property it will not be as much of a problem as it will not be your current residence.

      If you are staying in the property while the renovations are being done, I would recommend placing a 6 hollow rod metal wind chime in the southwest. We have had a similar situation in our home and this did not cause too many problems with the wind chime in place.

      Good luck with the renovations Samaki.

      Kind regards,

  73. My sign is rabbit, my partner is a rooster sign, our apartment is facing West. The 2015 just started but then we already experienced lot of misfortunes and misunderstandings. I feel so stress about it, hope someone advice me for some cures. Thank you very much.

    1. Hi Ching,

      The best thing I can recommend is the 2015 Annual Cures and Enhancers Kit as this covers all aspects.

      Kind regards,

  74. my house kitchen is at West Sector. What should I do to reduce the impact in 2015.
    Help !
    Gratefully looking forward to your advise.

    1. Hi Janice,

      I would recommend introducing some metal objects and colours to negate the effects of the fire in the kitchen this year.

      Kind regards,

  75. My eldest daughter\’s bedroom is in southeast(2) part of the house. In 2015 it is very bad i think. So what can I do for this ? pl. help me.

    1. Hi Darshi,

      The southeast is not a good area in 2015. I would recommend placing six chinese coins in a row, a salt water cure and try to introduce some metal decorations and colours in to your daughters room for the door. This can be introduced with throws and a metal bowl.

      Kind regards,

  76. I read the articles in detail and found very informative and educational.
    I will be setting up my garden in the back yard soon which is in north direction of the house.

  77. Excelente la informacion suministrada por ustedes. Mil gracias por tener esta pagina y tambien en varios idiomas
