Feng Shui Scholar Q&A
||Question 1: Remedy for Bathroom
aligned with Front Door....and Enhancers to Improve Overall
Wellbeing of the Family
My name is Rhodora Quitlong and my birthday is April 19,
1969. We are currently living in a 1 bed room apartment.
Our front (main) door is facing south and if you enter it's
the living room, and in the rightside is the kitchen, front
door is align with the bathroom door. And our bedroom is
on the right of the bathroom.
I am really interested to buy some of your products. Can
you please recommend me which one is the best for wealth,
health, children, career, education and love; and how to
position them. I want to have wealth so that I can help
my brothers and sisters. I have two kids that really need
help in their studies. I want to have a successfull marriage.
I want also love,peace,unity and happiness in our home.
My husband is looking for a good job. What product is suited
to help him found that job. His birthday is March 16, 1967.
Thank you very much.
I guess the most important thing you need to cure is the
toilet directly opposing the maindoor. The maindoor is
the mouth of the house. How much the house eat (symbolically
representing the career and wealth) would be determined
by the maindoor. It is the most important of all in feng
shui. The problem is any good chi that enters the mouth
straight goes to the drain as the toilet flushes away
all the good chi. Therefore by all means you will have
to get a partition, be it a piece of high furniture, a
wall or something in between the maindoor and the toilet
door. So that the chi that enters your maindoor wont see
the toilet at all.
As for enhancers, here is what I would
- Get the King
Wealth Frog, 1, 3, 6 or 9 pieces and have them diagonally
facing your maindoor.
- Place in SE a Money Tree made from Citrine with 9 coins to symbolize
coming wealth. This would be an extremely powerful enhancer
for the whole of Period 8.
- Place the Rich Wealth God in the SE as well to signify his arrival
and bringing in of wealth for you.
- Activate annual star#8 in the NE this year with 6-round
Crystal Balls. Once activated it would bring in lots
of good money luck and would come smoothly.
- Place a Laughing
Buddha facing your maindoor to invite in good wealth
King Money Frog(left) &
Citrine Money Tree(right)
- Place a 6-Emperor
Coins Golden Wulou in the SW this year to cure illness
- Place a pair of natural wulou by your bedside.
- Hang the powerful 5 bats surrounding the Longevity Symbol in the East to
ensure all in the family will live till a ripeful age.
- Also to keep ourselves healthy and energetic all the
time, it is best to have the auspicious
cicada placed either in the bedrooms of the east area
of the house. The cicada will work wonders for you. For
protection against accidents and epidemic influences,
you may also carry the jade
cicada amulet for protection.

- Place elephants in the west or in front of your bedroom
to enhance fertility.
- Place 6
round Crystal Balls in the west with a yellow or earth
colored bowl. Shine lights onto the balls and let it produce
more earth energy to produce metal for the west. That
would bring you more children.
Wealth Ship(left) & 6 Round

- Place a Wealth
Ship sailing into your home an harboring in your house
with riches. Each wealth ship would represent one source
of income, if you need more sources of income, increase

Dragon Tortoise in the north is a must. Get a beautiful
- For promotion and to enable him being manager one day,
get him a Golden
Sceptre for authority. Place it in his workdesk or
the north of your living room.
- Don't miss out both the rooster
as it is able to help him through hard times at work in
countering politics and ensure smoothness in his endeavour.

- Place a Wen
Chang Pagoda at the study place and one in the northeast
of your living room.
- Also place the crystal
globe at the northeast of the study table
- To increase science and mathematical skills, place the
on the study
- Dont leave out the powerful symbol of Dragon
Carp. It shows that it had successfully transform
from a carp to the dragon, which means your education
would continue to go to greater heights till it is successful.

& Dragon Carp(right)
- Don't leave out the powerful mandarin ducks. Place one
pair of rose quartz mandarin ducks in the southwest corner
of your bedroom. Place another pair of mandarin ducks made from wood in the SE corner in 2004
to activate love star #4.
- Hang by your bedside the powerful Peach Adventurine Double Happiness symbols with dragon and
phoenix and bats. It would bring you immaculate relationship.
- Increase your attractiveness and spice up your sexy
life with the peony bracelet. They are ever so popular among the ladies.
- Also hang a pair of jade mandarin ducks on your handbag. The period 8 is where
earth energy rules. The jade will play its role by amplifying
your love life. Try it and you will see the results.
- Don't leave out the rose
quartz love fulfilling tree as well. Place it in the
southwest corner in your bedroom as well.

7. Peace, unity and happiness at home
- Fuk Luk Sau plays the biggest role in ensuring such aspiration
is achieved. Place them in the east.
- Also place the Laughing
Buddha in the east to bring happiness to the whole
family. He will help to cure and counter hostile star#3
which is residing there this year.
- Place a pair of Yellow Carps to represent glorious and harmonious and fulfilling
family in the east too. Get our Period 8 carps to help
you achieve that. The yellow color would bring strong
earth energy that rules period 8.

Also, I would personally recommend everyone
in the family to carry along the bagua horoscope coin to enhance good luck and protect from
bad intentions, accidents, and any other forms of badluck.

2: Pool in the south. Safety amulet for long journey. Quarrelsome
Dear Feng Shui Scholar,
My first question is my pool is located in the south behind
my house. According to the flying stars in 2004 that is
not a good area. Do I need to be careful?
My second question is can you clean a bagua, how often and
how should it be done?
My third question is my daughter will be traveling very
far for a month this summer. I don\'t want anything bad
to happen to her. Can I do anything to keep her safe?
My last question is my daughter is talented and smart but
always scared, hates to be alone and does not seem happy
inside and my boys argue a lot. What can I do? I've tried
Thank you so much for answering these questions that have
been in my thoughts for free. I really appreciate it.
Hmmm....having a pool in the south is not a good idea
as it clashes with the fire element in the south. That
could affect reputation, fame and popularity of your family,
which means many people may not like your family if you
don't do something about it.
Another bad point is water must not be
at the back of the house. Water in front is excellent,
but water at the back will drown your good luck and support
from important people.
I guess, this year if you have water
at the south, it isnt so bad after all, since the water
will help to remedy for the 3-Killings at the south. You
cannot renovate the south this year because of this strong
But next year in 2005, kindly consider
removing the pool if possible. Else you will have to dry
up the pool and cover with something.
To clean the bagua, the best way is to
use incense that is made from sandalwood and let the smoke
penetrate the bagua. Hold the burning incense in either
an incense burner or in a bowl right under the bagua for
a few minutes. Burnt sandalwood incense produces an aromatic
smoke that is believe to ward off evil spirits and can
cleanse all your feng shui cures and enhancers, rejuvanate
new energies and bring life to them. Try doing that once
a month in order for the accumulated bad chi to dissolve
away, so that the bagua is working at its peak all the
Bagua Horoscope Coin
Oh yes, absolutely! To keep your daughter
safe always when she is travelling, please let her keep
with her the bagua
horoscope coin. It ensures her safety and protection
against bad intention and evil.
Magical Mystic Knot
Another powerful amulet for protection
that is important in Period 8 is the Jade
Mystic Knot. It is one of the 8 auspicious objects
of Buddha and it ensures a smooth ride throughout Period
of 8 for her. That would be a good luck charm for her.
Red Robe Laughing Buddha
As for boys who often quarrel, place
laughing Buddha in the East this year to cure quarrelsome

||Question 3: Finding a man
who can marry me?
I have had a few boyfriends who had left me many times,
what can I do to improve my love luck so that I can eventually
find someone who can marry me?
Greetings. Thank you for your question.
There are several areas you might want
to consider when activating your love luck:
1. The easiest is to use the universal "southwest corner"
according to 8 Aspirations Theory. Place the rose
quartz mandarin ducks and the rose
quartz love fulfilling tree with 9-coins in the SW
corner of your bedroom and living room.
2. Next is to use your personal "nien
yen" direction according to 8-Mansions Formula. Hang
the powerful peach adventurine "double
happiness symbol" with dragon-phoenix and bats in
3. And the most powerful one is to activate romance star
number #4 according to flying star feng shui. You may
want to activate two romance stars. One of them is romance
mountain star #4 which is calculated based on the flying
star map of your house facing direction and year the house
was built. A flying star feng shui master could do that
for you. The other more universal romance star #4 is the
annual star#4. This happens to be the SE this year for
every home. The best way to activate this romance star#4
is placing a pair of wooden
mandarin ducks in the SE area of your home, living
room or bedroom. Star#4 is wood element, and mandarin
ducks is the ultimate symbol of conjugal bliss. Therefore
the combination would make a perfect enhancer. Also please
do not forget to use put some plants in the SE corner
of your living room and garden this year. A small water
feature is great too, but not in the bedroom please.
All the three authentic methods I mentioned above should
bring your results. They can be combined, not a problem.
Peach Adventurine Double
Happiness Symbol for Conjugal Bliss
As for yourself, carry along the Jade
Mystic knot to ensure a smooth ride in all your love
endeavours. The mystic knot dissolves problems and ward
off unhappiness in your life. Besided that, peonies will
make you attractive to men. Invest on the peony
bracelet and wear it at work and when you are out
shopping. This would make you look more youthful and attractive.
In olden days, chinese concubines keep peonies to attract
the emperor visiting them more often. Also to double the
effect, also have the jade
peony amulet hanging on your handbag all the time.
Wood Mandarin Ducks as
Romance Star #4 Activator and Jade Peony Bracelet
as a Love Potion
Last but not least, try using the Magic
Mirror as the make-up mirror. It works remarkably.
In the morning have some sunlight shine on it and use
it for make-up. It would dissolve all the bad chi on your
face and remove bad luck, especially the forehead's crown
chakra. At nite, you may absorb the moon's light and it
when you shine it on your face, it would bring yin energy
to you and create a radiant nature of a lady in you, thus
making you more attractive to the other party. After using
the mirror, you may also aim the mirror at your enemies
and they will instantly turn into your friends again.
What is more, you can aim it at the men you desire for
and start to have them approach you soon.
5-Bats Magic Mirror to
create radiance in your face
After explaining to you about earth
luck, another thing that all feng shui practitioners always
believe is heaven luck and mankind luck. Sometimes, your
previous karma could have determined that you had owed
him something in the past, and now it is your turn to
return him. This is beyond our control and is controlled
by heaven. Another area that could change or determine
your next destiny would be the mankind luck. I m not teaching
you to forget about all your previous boyfriends, but
instead use your old sad experiences to harness and nurture
a new love seed. I m sure there are a lot of areas you
could improve on your own. Maybe learn to cook a good
meal, be a great garderner or interior designer that captures
mens' heart........but one thing for sure is you need
to instill good thoughts on how to manage a man properly
and win his heart forever. There must be something that
every man is looking for in life, and if you could fulfill
that, you already win half the battle. Relationship is
complicated and we just need to learn how to give way,
tolerate and win our partners heart. Spend more time in
relationships and maybe less time at work could help as
well. These are some examples. Remember, don't be bog
down by the uncontrollable heaven luck (40%), you still
have earth luck (feng shui) and mankind luck that constitute
to 60% that could help you through love hardships. We
therefore wish you very good luck. If you got time, start
to forget about the past and be positive, there are so
many wonderful moments still in front of you that you
are looking forward to. This is also where all the feng
shui symbols would help to remind you. Move your furniture
around and your feng shui symbols around to change some
energy in your house, throw out all the old rubbish....and
I guarantee your life would change for the better.
Good luck, good fortune and prosperity

||Question 4: Countering Bad
Dear Feng Shui Scholar,
I have recently putchased items from Feng Shui Best Buy
such as the Imperial Chi Lin, Dragon Tortoise, Pi Yao, 5
Element Pagoda and another smaller set of Chi Lin's. However,
even after studies I am new to the Feng Shui placement of
the items in the Flying Stars positions and would like som
guidence in placements of the items in my flat and I ahve
been told that you cannot just place the items in the house
accoring to your flying stars chart. My front building is
facing DIRECTLY SOUTH, back directly NORTH. The door of
our flat faces WEST, I have placed a pair of Chi Lin's at
the entrance. My master bedroom is in the NorthWest sector
of the flat and the living room is in the SouthWest. The
2nd bedroom is in the SouthEast (an empty computer/guest
room). The toilets are one in an ensuite masterbedroom and
the other in the corridor between the back of the flat and
the front. My kitchen is combined one room with the living
room (faces South directly) and the kitchen is on the direct
West side of the room. I would like guidence in placement
of the Pi Yao, Dragon Tortoise, and 5 Element Pagoda. My
KUA is 8 and my husband's birthday is 02-02-1974, so would
that make him KUA 8 as well? As I have been told he is not
a Tiger but actually an OX?? Please help, as I would like
to place the items to avoid the bad flying stars.
Greetings. In the practice of Feng Shui, we must first
protect from bad feng shui and then next to enhance good
In Compass Feng Shui, in order to determine
bad locations, we usually find PERMANENT AFFLICTIONS in
our home's unique flying star map. We usually have to
2 and star 5 that appears in any section with 6-rods
Bagua Wulou Windchime, 5
Element pagoda or 6-Emperor
Five Element Pagoda and
6-Emperor Coins Wulou
And on annually basis, we will have
to cure the universal ANNUAL
AFFLICTIONS as well. Important afflictions MUST be
cured include 5-Yellow, Illness Star2, Tai Sui and 3 Killings..
And of course we also need to make cure any killing breathe
and bad energy as a result of form and shape within our
living space, such as protruding beams, pillars, sharp-edge
furniture, external poison arrows etc.
After we prevent bad luck, then we start
to activate good luck. To enhance good luck, we can easily
use three methods to determine the right locations:
1. Determine where good flying stars are according to
our home's own flying star chart and the annual chart.
We always must consider activating Water
Star#8 and Mountain Star#8. And some practioners who
are more greedy would also activate star 1, 4 and 6 as
2. Use 8-Mansions
Theory to identify personal sheng chi, fu wei, tien
yi and nien yen directions and activate them with good
3. Use Bagua 8
Aspirations Theory which lists 8 kind of aspirations
in our life for each direction and activate them by using
symbol or using colors representing each element.
I hope with the above short explanation,
it would clear some of your doubts in feng shui.
Chi Lin and Coinsword
Placing the pair of chi
lin at your door is excellent to prevent bad luck
and improve good feng shui. That would assure you a good
and smooth year ahead. And in year 2004, where violent
star #7 resides you may choose to hang a small coinsword
on the wall pointing outwards, where it would be hidden
behind the maindoor when the door is being fully opened.
This would counter any legal suit, quarrelsome people
and political entanglement at work place.
6 Round Crystal Balls and
6 Rods Windchime
Your bedroom being in the NW is auspicious
this year as it would bring you luck from the heaven.
You may place 6
round crystal balls or hang a 6
rod windchime to activate auspicious star #6 that
is residing there this year.
Dragon Tortoise on Bagua
for Period 8
Place your Dragon
Tortoise on Bagua in the North Area of your living
room to activate career luck.
As for the 5
Element Pagoda, fill up with some sand or soil, then
place it at the center of your house to trap the deadly
5-Yellow which is extremely dangerous this year.
Your husband is a Tiger, not Ox. We follow
the Lunar Calendar to determine the zodiac of a person
and Tiger Year started on 23 Jan 1974, thus making your
husband a Tiger. His Kua Number is 8 as well. I guess
you and your husband having Kua Number 8 will enjoy double
good luck in Period 8. You will both prosper within this
20 years and will have a smooth ride in achieving a lot
of wealth luck.
This year, the tiger is in conflict with
Tai Sui (Grand Duke Jupiter), therefore your husband has
to place the Pi
Yao with its face facing the WSW (225-255 degrees).
You can locate the Pi Yao in the center of the living
room and let it face towards that direction to appease
the Grand Duke Jupiter.
And don't ignore quarrelsome star# 3 too if you want to
prioritize on your relationship with your husband. Place
robe or golden robe laughing buddha at the east to
exhaust the star. Red is fire and will be able to burn
the wood energy from the star. Gold is strong metal and
could cut wood as well. Both colors are auspicious too
and will bring you good luck.
