Before you start doing up your annual feng shui

Before you start to do up your Flying Stars, first and foremost a feng shui practitioner needs to listen to the earth. The relationship of the practitioner with the land is the expression of a bond, of cooperating with it and becoming attuned to it so it is in sync with the energy of the universe. To do this, an immediate consideration should be to build protection of the 5 cardinal directions. Protection means safety. You do not want harm to come to you and your family. Typically, safety means protection from malevolent energies that will affect well-being, health, livelihood and family relationships. We cannot emphasize more of how important it is have all the major directions protected by the Five Celestial Guardians Windchime. This is the first step in your protection checklist to take before doing up your feng shui further.

Why do we need to do a check and balance on feng shui annually?

Feng shui winds blow differently each year. Highly accurate, the Flying Star Chart reveals the time dimension of energy changes for each corner of your house. Understanding the forces revealed and proactive remedy will help you to navigate through misfortunes, illnesses, pitfalls and troubles. Proactive remedy refers to the placement of appropriate cures and enhancers to generate energy vortexes that subdue afflictions or magnify positivities.

Whether one is using Luan Tou (Landscape) or Time Dimension feng shui, the fundamental principle of feng shui requires one to divide a space into 9 equal chambers or palaces. These respective chambers will have eight compass bearings: North, South, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest. One will then have to superimpose this simple chart onto the space of study (object). The space of study can be the world, a country, a district, a city, a home and a living room. A bigger space of study is known as "big tai chi" while the smaller space of study is known as "small tai chi".

Next, you will need to incorporate "time dimension" into the study of these 9 palaces. As time changes, the luck of each palace will change accordingly due to the change of "chi" (energy) in these palaces. The luck cycle will keep changing every 180 years, every 20 years, every year, every month, every day, every hour and every quarter hour. From this you can actually predict the events that will happen. Say for example if you check the 9 palaces of a house according to the change of time, you can predict which year the houseowner will be prone to extramarital affairs, which year he will have substantial financial gains and which year he will fall sick. This can method can be applied to almost every incident in your daily life and you will be simply amazed at the propensity on fulfilling your predictions is actually quite high.

But do not overdo this, else it can become sheer tribulation, where you will be overly concerned with where you will go and what you should and what you should not do by constantly checking your quarterly hour charts. The best option is to focus only on two important charts that will contribute significantly to the quality of chi of our space:
1. The natal flying star chart of a house (where the types of chi will remain forever in the same chambers until the next significant renovation is conducted or the building is demolished) - this will determine the life destiny of the occupant staying in the house till the end.
2. The annual chart - this will determine the fortune of the occupant for that particular year. Even so, it cannot be ignored because the results is more explosive. For example, if one knows how to tap the fortune luck of the year, he could become rich very fast. Similarly, if one ignores a misfortune spot of the house, he could end up a failure immediately.

What you cannot do with Flying Stars feng shui?

It is difficult to change the luck that is affecting something of a larger scale, say the whole world, a country or a city. For example, the outbreak of SARS (back in 2003) could not be avoided when Illness Star #2 flew to certain countries. But individuals could choose to escape from it even though the majority of the nation is being affected by it. Although a country that you are staying in is an important influence, but what determines your individual luck is still determined by the nearest means of container that keeps you in it. The container in this context is your own home sweet home. And you can definitely determine your own luck by cleverly updating the feng shui of your own home.

When will the annual luck cycle change every year?

The change of energy in 9 palaces follows the chinese SOLAR calendar. Every year, 3rd or 4th February would be the date of change in energy. So, remember that feng shui is never static. The dynamism of feng shui lies in the changing of stars in different sectors and directions of our homes, premises and even in our geographical map. There are good and bad stars that move from one location to another every year and must NEVER be taken lightly. And if you know how to identify the good and bad locations in your homes, then you will be able to apply remedies for problematic areas and enhance the luck of the good areas. You will then be able to capitalize the best out of the year and prevent misfortunes brought by the bad energies.

Introducing Annual Bad Stars and Afflictions

In feng shui practice, we ought to PROTECT and DEFEND against any bad luck as the first step before trying to activate for any good luck. Neglecting this protective step will result in one experiencing problems more than having good luck. In general, each year has certain directions that are considered inauspicious because they exert evil influences (known as shar chi) and they can bring danger if unattended. Those who choose not to do anything or keeping those areas quiet are simply like ignoring sickness symptoms passively and hoping that nothing will happen. If one is lucky, of course it still stands a good chance that nothing will happen. But the more proactive ones will cure them to prevent the symptoms from turning into fatal diseases. The followings are the annual afflictions in general that we need to take pre-caution against. The basis of knowing feng shui is for us to get ourselves prepared and defend against bad luck. If we do not wish to do anything, then it is better not to learn feng shui.
Disastrous Flying Stars
1. Fatal Star #5 Yellow (Wu Huang)
2. Illness Star #2 Black (Er Hei)
Dangerous Annual Afflictions (Shar Chi):
3. Three Killings (San Shar)
4. Grand Duke Jupiter (Tai Sui)
5. Year Breaker(Sui Po)
Troublesome Flying Stars:
6. Violent Star #7
7. Quarrelsome Star#3

The Fatal Star #5 Yellow, Illness Star #2 Black, Violent Star #7and Quarrelsome Star#3, formulated from flying star charts in "San Yuan" school of Feng Shui, are related to Luo Shu and the annual location of them are in one of the 9 palaces of the bagua.

Next, the theories of Three Killings (San Shar), Grand Duke Jupiter (Tai Sui) and Broken Year (Sui Po) are originated from the "San He" system of Feng Shui, which later got incorporated into the San Yuan system of Feng Shui during Ming Dynasty. San He uses the concepts of Four Pillars to read Feng Shui. The primary factor involved in recognizing the location of San Shar, Tai Sui, and Sui Po is the branch of the Year. This factor will determine all of their annual positions.

Introduction to Good and Fortunate Stars

To achieve benefit from feng shui, besides defending against the evil, we also ought to know what the good stars are and where they are located every year. Knowing how to capitalize on them will bring success, good fortune, wealth, good health and opportunities for a smooth ride for the whole year. The followings are the good stars that we ought to harvest our luck from:
Good Flying Stars
1. Wealth Star #8 White
2. Advancement Star #9 Purple
3. Career Star #1 White
4. Heaven/Windfall Star #6 White
Moderate Flying Star:
5. Wen Chang Star#4 Green

When will the stars transition and when is the expiration date of cures and enhancers?

For the lunar Year of Rooster in 2017, the locations of the afflictions and fortunes mentioned above are pre-calculated and shown in the 9 palaces of the flying star map below. This new chart will only be effective starting 3rd February 2017. This follows the solar calendar, which begins with the start of spring. Spring is known as "Lap Chun" in chinese. Since the new set of energy will only transition and set in on this day, the best is to start displaying cures ANYTIME AFTER this day to be more appropriate. However, Taoist practitioners normally send off the Kitchen God and Deities to heaven from their home altars on 24th day of lunar 12th month (21 January 2017). The period between this date to the day when gods are received back (4th day of lunar new year - 31 January 2017) is considered as the "transitionary period" and the energies of the entire home is "neutral". Therefore, some masters of Taoist Lineage consider anytime AFTER this date (21 January 2017) as suitable to throw away old cures and replace them with new ones. No matter how eager you are, you are reminded NEVER to place your new cures BEFORE this date (21 January 2017). You can prepare the cures and keep them aside first until the date arrives for placement. It can be done down the road, but not the opposite. The reason is because if one tries to cure any energy before this date, the old energy will still get stucked in the cure and will expire after that.

Analyzing the 2017 Chart

The Annual Flying Star Chart with nine palaces is a map that shows the auspicious and inauspicious directions of the year. Use this chart to update and organize your house for a prosperous year. This chart is for all houses, regardless of the direction, layout and inhabitants of the houses.

The first step is to look at the annual number itself which takes prominence in the center of the Annual Flying Star Chart. Remember that the center is the heart that pumps and dominates. In 2017, the Success Star #1 enters the prominent center palace and rules the chart. This star is known in Taoism as the God of Fame and Success who lifts the levels of success for everyone. The year will therefore be blessed with a high sense of triumph and vibes of victory.

At a glance palaces along the east are the most auspicious. Palaces along the west are dangerous. Each number gives us clues to the afflictions and good fortune accurately. You should approach the year by remedying the problems first in order to protect yourself against the negative effects. New cures are designed according to inter relationships of the elements of the types of chi, flying star numbers, directions and trigrams so that they work amazingly to subdue negative energies. Once all afflictions are remedied, you can benefit from the good fortune stars if you release their energies by activating them with authentic enhancers. Our enhancers work like magic by generating vortexes that will pulsate well with the intrinsic energies of good fortune stars.

Each sector will be analysed one at a time in detail below, starting with the worst to the best sectors.

2017 Flying Star Map: Afflictions and Luck for Various Directions
Copyright Reserved 2017


The SOUTH sector hints disaster. The deadliest affliction, known as the Fatal Star #5 Yellow (Lien Chen Star), moves into this sector of all houses and premises. It causes high amplification of obstruction, serious misfortune, mishap, diseases, calamity, family disharmony, family breakup, injuries, accidents, ailment, fatality, obstacles at work, a whole series of bad news, all sorts of difficulties and bankruptcy if this sector is disturbed or not remedied. A moment of negligence can spiral your luck from bad to worse in a heartbeat. It is a star that will bring disasters fast. Belonging to earth element, as the #5 Yellow enters into the SOUTH sector that is belonging to fire element, the fire energy magnifies earth element. Therefore, careful attention has to be paid in selecting a proper and authentic remedy. The cure must be authentic and acknowledged by classical feng shui masters and grandmasters. Promising something more powerful than the ordinary, display the Six Emperor Longbi BIG METAL Strip in this sector to effectively subdue the affliction.

A bleak year lies ahead if any one of the following scenarios applies to you. You may keep with you the Lady of Nine Heavens Amulet for additional protection:
1. Your entrance is facing the direction of SOUTH.
2. Your entrance is located in the sector of SOUTH.
3. Your bedroom is located in the sector of SOUTH.
4. Your kitchen is located in the sector of SOUTH. Strong fire energy reinforces #5 Yellow making it fiercer. You will need to avoid cooking and instead opt for eating out for one whole year.
5. Your Zodiac Palace is located in the SOUTH, eg. HORSE.

One should not disturb the earth or perform any ground breaking nor renovation in the area where #5 Yellow resides. In the face of adversity and change, hold steady and constant. Do not get too eager to make changes. If you have thoughts to renovate, alter or move into the SOUTH, shelf them first. If disturbed, it can lead to injury, accidents and illnesses including fatality. The best is to keep the area with as little activity as possible. If one has an electrical fan here, try not to turn it on at all. All moving water features such as aquarium and water fountains should also be temporarily removed for one whole year. Instead of keeping the place dark, one should keep it bright. Just do not use "warm" lights. Instead, use low powered LED cold lights that will not aggravate the #5 Yellow and at the same time this can prevent "yin energies" from accumulating. Please take note that "yin energies" once accumulated can worsen the situation.


The Illness Black Star #2 (also known as Ju Men) flies to this sector to send chills. In feng shui, one will always need to consider health as priority because without health, one will not be able to obtain good luck in making money. According to the classics, the NORTHWEST is the partriarch corner, one of the two most important directions that determine if the feng shui of a house is good or bad, the other being the southwest (martriarch corner). Therefore, if the NORTHWEST palace has bad energy, it knocks out the partriarch making him weak and unproductive. When the partriarch is weak, the entire family will suffer. This year, the illness energy is so aggravated that it can bring about fatality. Those with a maindoor, bedroom or kitchen here, in particular, needs to watch out for danger and long term illnesses, especially those related to abdominal and gastrointestinal areas. Having said that, even if your bedroom or kitchen is not located here, the illness energy in the NORTHWEST should not be left unattended without a remedy. It can still affect the partriarch and all males in the family. Apart from charging you with viruses and illnesses, this star is also capable of bringing about lost of wealth, injuries, gossips, lawsuits, relationship problems, insomnia (sleeping problems) and depression. You are recommended to subdue #2 Black with the Double Wulou with 5 Dragons and 100 Cranes. It is a strong diminisher against monthly ill winds, all forms of deadly viruses and serious illnesses. One must always avoid any construction or renovation work in the Illness Star #2 location as such activities can heighten the negative effects.

A more advance feng shui expert will have to look into more than one dimension when remedying potential problems. If one desires to protect their health thoroughly, you need to identify which sectors are important to the health. There are three major areas, namely:
1. Five Ghosts (Wu Gui) Sector
2. Bedrooms
3. Kitchen

The "Five Ghosts" or traditionally known as Wu Gui is an evil energy that will bring one empty hopes and disturbances in the form of illness energy. This is because illnesses can ruin many things and lead one to emptiness in life. Feng Shui masters from Hong Kong had obtained significant statistics showing that many cases of illnesses, abnormal growth and surgeries are due to Wu Gui. Therefore, they will always identify cures first thing they find someone's bedroom in the Wu Gui's position. This is often not shared openly in books because it is a trade secret of the consultants.

Therefore, besides remedying the #2 location, the Wu Gui location is also compulsory to be addressed whether it falls in a bedroom or not. And the same Double Wulou with 5 Dragons and 100 Cranes will also be the best remedy against Wu Gui. The followings are the Wu Gui sectors based on the 8 Mansions Theory (irrespective of time dimension):

Houses facing north, the Wu Gui sector is in the west.
Houses facing northeast, the Wu Gui sector is in the southeast.
Houses facing east, the Wu Gui sector is in the south.
Houses facing southeast, the Wu Gui sector is in the east.
Houses facing south, the Wu Gui sector is in the northeast.
Houses facing southwest, the Wu Gui sector is in the north.
Houses facing west, the Wu Gui sector is in the northwest.
Houses facing northwest, the Wu Gui sector is in the southwest.

A sickness year lies ahead if any one of the following scenarios applies to you. You may keep with you the Longevity Vase Amulet for additional protection:
1. Your entrance is facing the direction of NORTHWEST.
2. Your entrance is located in the sector of NORTHWEST.
3. Your bedroom is located in the sector of NORTHWEST.
4. Your kitchen is located in the sector of NORTHWEST.
5. Your Zodiac Palace is located in the NORTHWEST, eg. DOG and PIG.

Note: All moving water features such as aquarium and water fountains should be temporarily removed for one whole year.


The Quarrelsome Green Star #3 (also known as San Bi) flies to the WEST bringing unwanted argument, violence, gossip and injuries. It brings disharmony and strain to marriages and office relationships. Court cases, litigation and quarrelsome energy will enter to destruct you .Because it causes you to lose concentration and make wrong decisions, it can cause you financial losses. Also when a person is always angry, he or she cannot have good fortune or gain any prosperity. Injuries can also be resulted. Many unreasonable quarrels and fights will flare up in the sector or for those who frequently use the sector leading to damages in relationship, be it professional or intimate. There will be many disharmonies and hostilities among friends, colleagues, employer-employee, lovers, family members and spouses. Families may suffer from breakup due to quarrels and fellow colleagues will be found in many arguments jeopardizing your career. This star can also lead you to scandals. The best cure to be displayed in the location is the Pi Yao Riding on Phoenix. If main door is here, additionally hang above the maindoor the STRONG METAL 9 Mirrored Bagua.

Note: All moving water features such as aquarium and water fountains should be temporarily removed for one whole year.

To make matters worse, the WEST is the location where Tai Sui is sitting. The Tai Sui is also being referred to as the Grand Duke Jupiter or Grand Commander of the Year. The Tai Sui conflict is a serious affliction that must not be taken lightly of. This year the Tai Sui occupies the West 2 ranging from 262.6 to 277.5 degrees, which is only a 15 degrees span. Offending or disturbing the Tai Sui may cause various levels of effects including career setbacks, surgery, illness, injury, loss of money and fatalities. The traditional use of Pi Yao in this area will greatly help to appease the Tai Sui. The Pi Yao is a powerful celestial creature known to absorb all the bad vibes caused by inadvertantly offending the Tai Sui, for example if you cut a tree, dig a hole, hammer a nail or unavoidably disturb the Tai Sui corner. This year, we have redesigned a new 24 Mountains Pi Yao of Wealth which incorporates a 24 Mountains Plate. Inviting this Pi Yao to your space will ease your efforts in diminishing obstructions. It enables you a fuller grip and better control over your fortune and luck. It has the ability to transform negative chi into positive, overcome obstacles, prevent annual dangers caused to zodiacs, subdue bad luck, combat bodily harm and terminate stress. Display this Pi Yao facing WEST 2. And there should be no construction work done in this sector of the house, including repair work. If this sector is disturbed, those staying in the house will have a tough year ahead with a lot of arguments, legal problems, financial losses and sicknesses. If there is no choice but a serious need to work on this area, then avoid starting and ending in the WEST.

For houses that are facing WEST in particular, you are considered as in confrontation mode with the Tai Sui. For such cases, it is better to display the Tai Sui Plaque at home as a way of paying deep respect to the deity and seeking blessings from Him. This is a common method of acknowledging the goodwill of Tai Sui as the Heavenly Divine One who is in charge of the year. The Tai Sui of the Year always bring virtue and good tidings, and promises divine help when needed. If you want to read more about the 2017 Tai Sui, you can read from here.

Anyone whose house is sitting WEST facing EAST or sitting EAST facing WEST will have to carry along the Grand Duke Charm or Amulet of Pi Yao on Abacus because you are considered as either offending or confronting the Tai Sui, even if your zodiac sign is not affected.


The EAST is afflicted by the malicious Three Killings. The Three Killings refer to 3 Violent Robbers in the mountain. It is the combination of Age Killing (Sui Sha), Plundering Killing (Jie Sha) and Calamity Killing (Zai Sha). They move in unison and sends shivers to feng shui masters and practitioners. San He School masters consider this affliction to be the worst among the three afflictions, namely the 5-Yellow, the Tai Sui and the Three Killings. Therefore one should never take it lightly. The Three Killings bring robbery, lawsuits, legal problems, quarrels, enemies, potential injuries and death. Entangling into lawsuit problems, meeting up with accidents and involvement in sex scandals are almost unavoidable if the sector is not properly remedied. With knowledge, remedying the Three Killings is not difficult. A simple and effective way is to display the authentic cure Enchanting Three Chilins with Wings in the EAST.

An additionally problematic year lies ahead if any one of the following scenarios applies to you. You may carry along the Lady of Nine Heavens Amulet for additional protection:

2. Your entrance or back door is located in the sector of EAST.
3. Your bedroom is located in the sector of EAST.
4. Your Zodiac Palace is located in the EAST, eg. RABBIT, TIGER and DRAGON.

On an equally bad note, the Sui Po (referred to as Broken Year) should also not be taken lightly. It spans from 82.6 to 97.5 degrees. In actual fact, although Sui Po energy is not as severe as the Three Killings, it can bring similar bad luck including fatalities. It is always located at the direction directly opposite the Tai Sui direction. Offending the Sui Po will lead to unrest at home, unwanted demotion, career downfall, lawsuits, gossips and unfavorable changes in life. The situation must be cured with the powerful 24 Mountains Pi Yao. One can display this Pi Yao anywhere along EAST-CENTER-WEST axis and have it facing the EAST. One has to abstain from renovating or doing ground breaking in this sector for the whole year for this reason.

On the bright side, the EAST is also visited by the most prosperous Wealth Star #8 White (also known as Ba Bai Star). The annual Wealth Star#8 is the most important star in the whole of the period 8. This wealth-bringing star brings in "current" wealth to make one wealthy and super rich instantly. It benefits both mainstream and speculative incomes. You will gain fame luck, financial magnification, good career and all types of good fortunes from this star. This star can also shine brightly to bring you to greater heights in career and business. Because this star brings "current" wealth and not "future" wealth, you must tap to the POWER OF NOW to benefit fully from it. Don't wait and find excuses to postpone the time to get rich. It is now or never. When others are cautious, you rise to be the brave one to seize the opportunity to make it rich this year. You want to be a millionaire and make it your destiny this year.

Powerful energy from Wealth Star #8 when released by these emblems will make you prosper at great speed. It will enable you to anticipate new financial territories, streams of new income and opportunities that can fuel your finances for a more optimistic wealth outlook.


The SOUTHWEST is being violently afflicted by the Broken Army Violent Star #7. This star which used to be auspicious before 2004 (Period 7) has transitioned to become a notorious one. It is also called "Po Jun" star in chinese. It will create fights and make people get furious for no practical reason. Disputes will be created in aspects of relationship, career or finance. Your investments and bank savings will be subjected to heavy losses. If unattended it will also make you lose your precious belongings or documents. Vile characters will triumph in their disputes over you. In aggressive cases, it causes bloodshed caused by metal objects such as guns, knives and swords. All in all, it brings disturbances, turbulence, violence, financial losses, fire, injuries by sharp objects, fightings in the family, armed burglary and theft. A strong remedy to safeguard against #7 Red is therefore needed and the best will be to display the Plaque of Winged Rhinoceros and Elephant with Nine Lions.

4. Your Zodiac Palace is located in the SOUTHWEST, eg. SHEEP and MONKEY.

Feng Shui Taboos

      In all the directions and sectors that are occupied by certain annual afflictions, it is important to exercise caution. Avoid disturbing the earth or engaging in renovations, demolition and construction, as this will trigger shar ("fan shar"). Also avoid hammering and nailing in those areas. If you absolutely need to renovate those areas, check out an auspicious date to start work from the chinese almanac ("tung shu"). And also worth taking note that having doors (especially the main door) in these directions and sectors of a building or rooms will cause disturbances too when opening and closing them. Any movement and noise is considered as an activation of the sector. Appropriate remedies have been suggested above to counter the ill effects for every affliction.
