Feng Shui 2016 – The Good Directions with Great Power

In the previous Feng Shui 2016 article, we have briefly looked at the bad directions to avoid in 2016 Year of Monkey. This time, we shall learn what are the good Feng Shui directions in the coming year.  Please read until the end of this post to know a special point to note regarding when you should make the Feng Shui changes in your house for 2016.

Feng Shui 2016 – Wealth

The most important direction where every Feng Shui practitioner would pay attention to is the Flying Star 8 direction. In 2016, this Feng Shui direction is in Southwest. This flying star is famous for bringing wealth. The simplest way to leverage its power is to put something related to water here. As simple as that. A mild yet effective method is to place a glass or vest here and fill with water. If you want a bigger kick, place a water column here.

Please, however, beware that while the above Feng Shui strategy works in many houses, some houses may not be suitable because the water may also bring negative impact to health to some of your family members. Wealth does not come free of charge, if you earn more chances are you pay by having worst health. So I suggest not to put a big Feng Shui tower or water fountain like what other Feng Shui masters would recommend. You need a balance of health and wealth, always.

Feng Shui 2016 – Happiness

Another good direction to check is the East where the Flying Star 9 occupies in 2016 Year of Monkey. This flying star is associated with every thing happy, such as marriage and new baby. If you are single, you may try to put a vest with flower in purple color here. Make sure the flower is real (no plastic flower please) and you regularly replace the water and the flower.

Feng Shui 2016 – Career and Study

If you want better luck in study and job promotion, you may try the West direction where Flying Star 4 locates. Place a vest with four green plant here. People commonly choose lucky bamboos but as long as the plant is green it is good enough (so your good choice is green plant without flower).

Read (and re-read) the above and my last Feng Shui 2016 article if you don’t understand. In fact, these are all simple advices that you should find no difficulty to understand. Lastly, do not forget that, Chinese Feng Shui always has a year begin in Spring. The first day of Spring in 2016 Year of Monkey is 4 February 2016. You don’t need to implement the Feng Shui strategies in this and my last Feng Shui 2016 article until that day.

(The above advices are made based on the Yearly Flying Star Map only. The Feng Shui strategy of different houses may differ, depending on the actual location and design of each house. If in doubt, you are advised to consult your local Feng Shui masters.)

Feng Shui 2016 – The Bad Directions that Bring Bad Luck

Year 2016 is coming, same as previous years, I am going to provide some Feng Shui ideas for you to live a lucky new year. In this first article in this Feng Shui 2016 series, we shall look at the bad directions, so that you know where to stay away from. We shall examine the good directions in the next article.

Feng Shui 2016 – Sickness Directions

Firstly, let’s talk about the directions that may bring you sickness. Every year, Feng Shui practitioners search for the Flying Star 5 on the Yearly Star Map. Flying Star 5 is an extremely bad star which is associated with illness, disaster and troubles. In 2016 Year of Monkey, this flying star occupies the Northeast corner.

For this flying star, the advice is simple. DO NOT carry out any building works in this direction inside your house. Building works include not only new construction, but alterations and repairs too. For example, you certainly should not form new openings on the walls or replace the floor tiles in this direction. Basically, anything that touches on the building structure should be avoided.

Besides, you should try not to place red, purple or orange stuff here. Of course, a very small red cup in the Northeast corner in your house would not harm, but please never place any such big things here. Try also keep this direction stable, do not put any dynamic things like water fountain here. These are all things that would trigger the negative energy of the Flying Star 5.

Next, the Flying Star 2 which also brings sickness. This star occupies the center of your house in 2016 Year of Monkey. So, you should have the same precautionary measures as Flying Star 5 in the center. Do not carry out building works or place any dynamic or red stuff in the center of your house.

Feng Shui 2016 – Building Works

There are a few more directions where you should avoid carrying out building works in the coming year. They are Southwest, Northeast, South and Northwest. These are the Tai Shui (the Yearly God), Shui Puo (the Yearly Sha – negative energy), San Sha (three killings) and Li Shi directions of the year. They are notorious for bringing bad luck in you touch them in a bad way.

The above devices may seem a bit crazy because if you want to follow them through, there is basically no possibility for you to repair your house. So many directions are untouchable!

Yes, this is the unfortunate truth. But it does not mean that you cannot repair the roof of your house even if it is serious leaking water. What you need to do is to begin your repair works in the good directions first, and gradually extend your works to the bad directions. The fundamental idea is to attract good luck from good directions first before you fight against the monsters.

The good news is, we now know what not to do to keep your risk exposure low. We shall find out the good directions in the next post in this Feng Shui 2016 series. Stay tuned!
