Feng Shui 2017 (3) – Good Directions in Year of Rooster

Happy Lunar New Year!

In my last two articles about the worst direction and some other bad directions, we have seen too many bad Feng Shui directions for 2017. This time, we shall see some good directions.

You may wonder why this article is published after the Lunar New Year. The fact is, many people are not aware that the Chi of a year does not change right at the first day of the Lunar New Year. According to Feng Shui theories, a year begins on the first day of Spring, which is usually 4 February. In other words, all Feng Shui settings for a new year should only be installed on or after 4 February.

This year, the time of Spring is quite tricky. In many parts of the world, it happens on the 3 February 2017, but in other parts of the world it happens on the 4 February 2017. My advice is you could do all Feng Shui settings on 4 February 2017. It doesnt hurt to start one day late, right? After reading this article, you still have time to prepare for your fortunate year!

Feng Shui 2017

The Most Powerful Feng Shui Direction in 2017

According to Chinese Feng Shui theories, the most powerful Flying Star in the Eighth Yun (Period), which is from 2004 to 2023, is Flying Star 8. This Star occupies East in 2017 Year of Rooster.

For this reason, most Feng Shui masters ask you to put a water fountain or some lucky stuff in this direction. In a way, yes, you could consider East as the luckiest Feng Shui direction in 2017, because the most powerful Flying Star comes to here. The energy here is full.

Just remember, there are always exceptional cases. In some houses, the use of this most powerful Feng Shui Flying Star may lead to bad luck. Why? Becasue it is so powerful! If in this direction there is also a bad Sha (deadly Feng Shui problem), Flying Star 8 would increase the power of the Sha too. It is just like adding fuel to the fire.

So, if you want to leverage the power of Flying Star 8, always consult a local Feng Shui master who could go to your house to check. If not, and you found that you encounter problems in your life, stop placing the Feng Shui stuff in this direction, whatever it may be.

Good Feng Shui Direction for Career / Study in 2017

Flying Star 4 occupies Northeast in 2017 Year of Rooster. If you place your desk here, you may be able to make the most out of this Star.

Again, if you find any problem after doing Feng Shui in this direction, stop immediately.

Good Feng Shui Direction for Relationship in 2017

Lastly, the best direction for love and relationship in 2017 is the centre of your house. Flying Star 1 goes to here. If you are eager to have a boost, place a beautiful vase with some colourful flowers here. Only real flowers count, plastic ones have no power at all. Again, stop doing this if anything undesirable happens, because the Sha that originally exists in the centre of your house, if any, may have bad effect if combined with this Flying Star.

Feng Shui 2017 (2) – Other Bad Directions

Last time, we learnt which is the worst Fung Shui direction in 2017.  This time, let us look at other bad directions in 2017.

Feng Shui 2017

Flying Star 2 – Sickness

Flying Star 5 brings disaster and everything unfortunate, Flying Star 2 is about sickness.  That’s why all Chinese Feng Shui books ask people to avoid if these two Flying Stars are together.

In 2017 Year of Rooster, Flying Star 2 will be located in Northwest.  In other words, if the entrance door, bedroom, kitchen or toilet in your house is located in the Northwest corner, you family members may have a higher chance of having health issues, ranging from more frequent common flu to serious illness or injury.

What not to do: do not hang anything in red or orange colour in this direction.  Avoid all building works as well.

Shui Puo and San Sha

Shui Puo is a direction against the God of the Year.  This is why you should never carry out any building works in this direction.  In 2017, Shui Puo is located in East.

San Sha is another very bad direction.  It literally means “triple killings”.  In fact, it is where the bad energy accumulates in a year, so it is yet another very bad Feng Shui direction.  In 2017, San Sha is also located in East.

See?  East has double troubles.  Although it is still not as bad as South where Flying Star 5 situates, my advice is never do any building works in this direction.  Avoid moving furniture in this corner too.

Tai Shui

Tai Shui is where the God of the Year locates for the whole year.  This is a very important Feng Shui direction.  In 2017, it is located in West.

Again, do not carry out any building works in this direction.  Otherwise, you may get the God of the Year mad and get yourself in deep trouble.

So these are the bad Feng Shui directions in 2017.  Next time, we shall meet the good ones, i.e. the fortunate Feng Shui directions!

Feng Shui 2017 (1) – The Worst Direction

The new year is coming, it’s time to prepare your home or office Feng Shui decorations.  In this Feng Shui 2017 series, I will introduce various good and bad directions, that you need to avoid and make the most out of, in the coming 2017, Year of Rooster.  This time, we shall examine the worst of all directions.

Feng Shui 2017

2017 Worst Feng Shui Direction – South

The worst direction in 2017 is South.  According to Chinese Feng Shui theories, there are nine Flying Stars which would change their locations every year.  The Flying Star that represents bad luck and disaster is Flying Star 5.  This Flying Star will come to South in 2017 the Year of Rooster.

This star is associated with all things bad.  The most important thing to remember is not to increase its power.  Always remember not to carry out any building works in this direction at your home or office.  These include major works such as demolishing a wall, forming an opening on the wall or floor, digging holes on the ground, etc. to minor works such as drilling small holes on the wall for installing a hanger.  The more you carry out works in South in 2017, the more energy and power you give to Flying Star 5.

Besides, try not to put any large red / orange stuff in this direction in the coming year, for example, red carpet, orange picture on the wall or painting the wall in these colours.  Absolutely not.  Flying Star 5 belongs to the earth element, red and orange are the colours of fire.  Placing things in these colours in South in 2017 is like adding fuel to the fire (because fire generates earth according to Chinese Five-element Theory).

What if you need to urgently fix the cracks on the wall?  Can you just ignore the defects and let the house collapse?  Of course not.  In case urgent repair is required, try to carry out the work at other directions first, then gradually extend the work to South.  By doing so, you could have a better beginning, bringing positive energy before the bad effect comes.

Now you know which is the worst Feng Shui direction in 2017 and what not to do in this direction.  Next time, we shall examine other bad Feng Shui directions in 2017.  Stay tuned!
