2016 Flying Stars Analysis
© Written by Michael Hanna 2016
On February 8th 2016 we begin a new Chinese year (year 4714th within the Chinese calendar) which will be the year of the Yang Fire Monkey, Bing Shen, and I am sure there will be a lot of Oxen who will be glad to see the back of the year of the Goat. The 2016 Xuan Kong annual flying stars full evaluation is detailed as below and this year is very important as we have the very inauspicious #2 black Star (Ju Men) enter the centre and specialist cures are going to be required more than ever in every home, office and store as this star can cause problems with the stomach, digestive system, general sickness and can also cause problems with thought process and not meaning to sound too pessimistic, but there is also a good chance of another recession with a stock market crash or correction.
The last time that we witnessed a Yang Fire Monkey Bing Shen year was back in 1956. This is a cycle of 60 years which will be found in a traditional “ten thousand year calendar” or our Tong Shu 2016 software.
In traditional and authentic Feng Shui we use the solar calendar and on February 4th 2016 we have the #2 black Star (Ju Men) visit the centre earth palace and it is a very inauspicious star and can cause disasters relating to political stability throughout the world and predicted stock market crashes/corrections amongst many other problems.
2016 could be a year of conflict for people born in the year of the Tiger. Look after your health and do not overexert yourself. For more information on your personal Chinese Animal for 2016 click here.
The 2016 annual flying stars Xuan Kong full analysis is detailed below. Please do not get confused with solar (this is when you place Feng Shui cures – spring begins) and lunar (celebrate Chinese New Year) calendars, more on this below.
In 2016, we have the #5 yellow – representing bad luck, obstacles and misfortune, arriving in the northeast on February 4th 2016 along with Sui Po it is recommended that you place a salt water cure, Yi Fan Feng Shun protection and enhancement charm, six rod hollow metal wind chime and a row of six coins tied with red ribbon to dissipate this negative energy. The worst months will be February, April, May, August, October, November 2016 and January 2017. Another bad star # 2 black, symbolising sickness will arrive in the centre in 2016.
Please do not start worrying if your bedroom or office is located in the southwest, south, northeast and northwest , just start preparing to place your 2016 cures and enhancers kit to help ensure a trouble free year, and of course make sure you sign up for our free monthly newsletter so you are kept up to date with the monthly flying stars giving you even more control of your destiny.
Many of these cures and enhancers we are using in 2016 are very tightly held secrets and over the years, we have come across many companies who have tried to copy them from us; they do not get the ingredients right and this can actually cause more harm than good so please be careful where you purchase these cures.
The 2016 Feng Shui cures and enhancers annual kit is not just some gimmicky cures put together; each cures is carefully selected for the year and is are extremely powerful enhancers that only the most advanced Feng Shui Masters and consultants throughout the world use and quite a few of the cures in our kits are one that many Feng Shui Masters charge thousands of pounds for. It does not matter how late in the year in 2016 you place your annual cures kit, we have many clients who have even placed them towards the end of the year and still get great results.
I am sure that there will be many people predicting disastrous events in 2016 and general bad things for the year but despite what they are predicting, I am very much looking forward to the year of the Monkey and you should be too.
If you want to try and avoid wealth problems, sickness, arguments, bankruptcy, legal problems, loss of wealth, relationship problems, problems with the mouth, sore throat, chest problems, indigestion, skin problems, car accidents, accidents or any accidents involving metal and just overall bad luck or if you want to enhance the positive areas in 2016 read on…
Are you really prepared for 2016?
Surely the 2016 cures and enhancers will make me exempt from any problems?
If your bedroom is in the southwest, northwest, south or northeast and you do not exercise much, smoke, eat takeaways every night, drink heavily and overall a bit lazy and think that taking a vitamin C tablet at the end of the day will cancel all of the above from your body and mind, you are very much mistaken although I know you do not need me to tell you that.
I am not coming from a moral high ground here and as hard as this may sound, you will, I guarantee have problems in 2016 but if you make changes this year you will avoid many of those problems, placing just the cures and enhancers on their own will help immensely but you should also make lifestyle changes. Please do not think I am standing on my high horse being all righteous and perfect, far from it, I am just giving you this advice as I have worked with thousands of clients throughout the world and I know the outcome.
In 2016, year of the Yang Fire Monkey, we will be placing every single Feng Shui cure and enhancer that I talk about on these pages as I have done as far back as I can remember but I will also spend time throughout the year making lifestyle changes to better my health, career and so on. Last year I moved home about 5 miles from the office and said I would be cycling to work as much as possible; admittedly, this happened maybe around 40 days of the year although I have been walking a lot more lately in order to keep myself active and cut down on pollution.
As you may know, we have given this Feng Shui advice to hundreds of thousands of Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners, students and enthusiast for over 17 years now and although we make many suggestions on cures and enhancers, we do not always agree with many websites insisting that you have to spend hundreds of pounds each year on cures and enhancers, they are simply not all needed.
The two products that I would strongly recommend to you for 2016 are our 2016 annual cures kit and the world’s most powerful and most widely used all new Feng Shui 2016 software, with over eight years in development, over 50 combined years Feng Shui experience and one year of beta testing with Feng Shui Master’s, Practitioners and students from all over the world, Michael Hanna and the International Academy of Feng Shui have built the most powerful Feng Shui software available.
What do I do with last year’s cures & enhancer’s kit?
Many books or websites will advise you to throw away your old annual cures and enhancers and bury your old six-rod wind chimes; six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon, Pi Yao, wu lou, ba gua mirror etc from the previous year because they store so much negative energy. This is not always necessary as long as you cleanse the items before replacing for the new Chinese year.
To cleanse your old Cures, ideally you should place outside under a full moon overnight or in direct sunlight for at least 4 hours and sprinkle with rock or normal salt. Make sure you rinse them under water (don’t forget to dry them) in the morning and you should place them in the appropriate areas as detailed below. This does not apply to the salt water cure, as these MUST be renewed without fail every year without exception and must never be reused.
As with all our products including the annual cures kits, they are all cleansed of negative energy and empowered with positive Sheng Ch’i energy, which makes them so much more effective.
Many people write in asking if we personally change our cures and enhancers kit each year as nearly all websites and books say you should throw them away. Our circumstances are different to yours, we have thousands of these cures and enhancers in our warehouse but we have never changed our Wu Lou (26 years old) or Tsai Shen Yeh. We change our wind chime and Pi Yao every year, the salt water cure we change without fail each year and I must admit the six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon we always change and our Ba Gua mirror yearly as these are very bad to keep for too long and the reason why we will never sell plastic or metal Ba Gua mirrors as they do not age and store so much negative energy and will cause you many problems. You must never use a plastic or metal ba gua (pa kua).
My advice is that even if you have our kit from sixteen years ago, carry on using it but follow the advice above about cleansing and make sure the salt water cure (must replace) and maybe six coins are replaced as these hold a lot of negative energy. Please never throw your Wu Lou away these are specially made for us and are the correct weight and size and I think they are a work of art and extremely powerful.
I cannot afford these cures or enhancers and/or my partner does not believe in Feng Shui?
When people first hear about Feng Shui, they usually think their home will have to look like a Chinese restaurant to obtain Good Feng Shui and this is certainly not the case; if you do not want to have six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon or a Wu Lou beside the bed there are alternatives; many people even place their 6 coins in a row behind a picture frame if they do not want it on display. For the west and southeast of your home or office, you should use some good quality heavy metal ornaments which are of round shape as this represents metal but avoid menacing looking ornaments like metal knives or similar or anything that is aggressive looking with sharp corners. Although it’s always best to have the Cures on display, I have many clients who place their 6 Chinese Coins tied in red ribbon behind a photo on the wall and still get tremendous results.
An alternative to a salt water cure in the northeast and centre in 2016 is a bowl of ultra clean still water although this is not as powerful as the Salt Water Cure and needs psecial care so it does get stagnant. The water must be kept squeaky clean though otherwise it will cause you many problems. I do not always like to recommend using a bowl because they can get dirty especially if you live in a hot country and can cause many problems, so please be careful with this if you do not use the salt cure.
In the southwest and south, try to place some real quartz crystal or objects that are made from an earth material like ceramic and make sure they are square in shape as this represents earth, this will help enhance wealth and luck in your home or office in 2016. The most influential and imperative cure and enhancer in 2016 is called a Ch’u Men Chien Ts’ai Master cure this cure can only be used in Yang Fire Monkey years. The last time this powerful cure would have been used was in 1956 which was also a Yang Fire Monkey year. This cure is needed to enhance and protect the occupants of the home or office in 2016 especially for the female of a home or business. Take a look at our 2016 annual cures kit and be as imaginative as possible in creating your own kit.
We do not write these pages with so much free advice just to try and sell you something; if you look at all the information below, you will find more alternatives for all the compass sectors without having to buy anything at all.
So what is flying star (Xuan Kong)?
Flying star (Xuan Kong) Feng Shui is the most powerful form that most professional Feng Shui Consultants use; it has absolutely nothing to do with astrology. It is an analysis of the five elements, land forms and star combinations that occupy your building. Each Chinese New Year in February these annual stars change, bringing good and bad energy and their effects are varied each year.
Every year and month we give free accurate information on how you can suppress or enhance the sectors of your home or office. Every building throughout the world will have these changing annual stars and you will need to take into account their ability to cause harm ranging from, sickness, wealth problems, legal problems, gossip, relationship problems and just overall bad luck and of course their ability to give auspicious good luck in wealth, health, romance, education and overall good well being. Unless a good star is activated it is of no benefit to you so follow our advice carefully.
Sample of a Flying Star chart (natal chart)
Generated with our Professional Feng Shui software. This chart below does not just focus on annual and monthly stars but also your fixed stars that are hundreds of times more powerful.
2016 is the 4714th year of the Chinese calendar.
In China, the solar calendar of the Bing Shen (Yang Fire Monkey) year starts on 4th February 2016.
- The first day of the Hsia (solar) calendar is February 4th 2016, this is the day you would place your Feng Shui cures and enhancers.
- The Monkey year ends February 3rd 2017
- 2016 is a Yang Fire Monkey year (Bing Shen)
- Chinese New Year falls on February 8th 2016 (Lunar calendar). This is the date you celebrate the Chinese New Year with Ang Pow, fireworks Talismans etc and not the date you use to place cures and enhancers in Feng Shui.
HOW TO FIND THE 2016 COMPASS SECTORS WITHIN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
Firstly, you will need to either draw a floor plan of your home or office or use the one that you received with the house. This can be hand drawn but it should be more or less to scale but don’t worry if it is not, it will give you a good idea either way. Define all the interior walls that indicate the different rooms. You can actually do your own floor plan within our Feng Shui software which makes it very easy.
Secondly, you need to divide your floor plan into 9 grids or wedges in proportion as shown below. Next, you need to know the compass direction of your home or office.
Once you have your compass readings; you will know which wall is in which direction and you can then overlay the year’s Lo Shu grid (annual stars) according to the eight magnetic directions. So in 2016 you will see from below that the #5 star falls into the northeast area for this home, which like most homes is an important area and could cause problems if you do not place any cures.
This chart below was created with our Feng Shui software Floor planner section. The top left number is called the mountain star and affects health and well-being of the occupants in the home, the top right number is called the facing star which affects wealth, and the middle number is called the period number and comes from the year the home was built. The bottom right number is the 2016 flying star. At a glance you can see where all the annual stars are along with mountain and facing etc and the reason why the software has become the industry standard in Feng Shui. The chart below is actually a very special chart called a “combination of ten with sitting” and requires careful analysis and the software explains in great details of how to get the best of every home of any age in any part of the world facing any direction.
This is why I do not want to know any personal details on a client that I consult for, as these numbers (along with land formations around the home) tell me everything about health, wealth, career and every part of their life.
The 2016 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:
The Three Killings: When at work, you may sit facing the south direction only if this is one of your personal good directions, if not, please do not sit with your back to the south in 2016 or you may find yourself coming in to contact with unscrupulous people working against you or you may encounter undue gossip and back stabbing during the year. A very powerful cure and enhancer for the south this year is to place a Hotei Buddha. The Hotei can help avoid a lot of problems that can be brought on when the Three Killings visit the south. The Hotei Buddha really is a beautiful and powerful cure especially as it is one of the most traditional cures in Feng Shui.
Resides between 232.5º – 247.5º degrees southwest in 2016. similar to 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. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Guan Zhong Tai Sui plaque to pay respect and appease the Deity. By paying respect to Grand Duke Jupiter, we can weaken or avoid the problems this can bring. This is really important this year and we have included the Guan Zhong Tai Sui Plaque in all our annual cures and enhancers kits.
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2016 is northeast. You should treat this area the same as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities. If disturbed this area can and normally will cause immediate health problems especially for the youngest male, so please be very careful. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Monkey year you need to display a Yi Fan Feng Shun talisman which we have included in all of our 2016 Cures and Enhancers Kits. If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the northeast place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the buildings and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Feng Shui Master or Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work or consult our Tong Shu date selection software.
The analysis of the annual flying stars can only be conducted from a general point of view offering indications as to the potential influences of the stars in the respective palaces for the year of the Goat.
How each area affects the wealth and health aspects of the residents depends greatly on the quality and combination of the ‘facing’ and ‘sitting’ stars of the property’s natal chart. If you have had a consultation by Master Michael he will be able to advise you better for 2016 or if you use our Feng Shui software it will show you where all your wealth, relationship, career areas are as you could have at the very least two wealth areas and maybe as many as five.
The southwest is very auspicious and if you placed a lottery ticket in the southwest in 2016, you will greatly increase your chances of winning. The lottery ticket below was created with an individual’s own unique lottery numbers with our Feng Shui software and taken from their birth date and just by placing it in the west or south can increase the chances of a win tremendously, and if you own the software you increase your chances even more as it calculates even more advanced formulas to tapping into wealth and good luck.
Kan 1 White In 2016 resides in the southeast.
In element form, Kan is water. In the physical body, it is the ear. Internal organ it is the kidneys and it is also blood.
Kan water #1 (tan Lang) has flown into the southeast which inherently is a wood location for the year of the Monkey indicating that with water enhancing the wood of the southeast this influence present in the southeast will be good and bring new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and scholarly pursuits when activated correctly. The intensity of these attributes will differ month to month according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars in the southeast. If you have a main door, bedroom, office or any other important room in the southeast of your home or office, this is very good news in the year of the Monkey.
To enhance academic study, you should encourage your child to study in the southeast part of their bedroom; you can also place a gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue as he protects wealth and also creates wealth in 2016. Tsai Shen Yeh must be placed in the southeast of whatever room is used as he is a protector and enhancer of wealth in 2016.
A good colour to use in the southeast this year is different shades of blue. A good way to implement different shades in your home or office this year can be by using beddings, throw-over, lampshades, pillow covers etc… If a bed is located in the southeast part of the room, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside the bed.
You should place a Sheng Chi cure and enhancer in the southeast this year to enhance the #1 wealth star. This important cure and enhancer is a very little known talisman charm and the reason it is called “Sheng Chi” is because it creates a cycle of energies and works in synergy with the earth’s cosmic breath with a very special quartz crystal, Chinese i-ching coin, rice and small amount of earth soil taken from the land around you combined with a special engraving at the bottom of the metal vessel. This cure works in synergy with the master cure that it is placed in the southwest.
Another vital cure for the southeast this year is the Long Baota Dragon Pagoda Protection talisman. The Protection talisman is an extremely powerful cure and enhancer for the Annual #1 star that flies in to the southeast in 2016. The southeast is a lovely area for wealth in the year of the Monkey and in order to make finances as prosperous as they can be this year, we need a powerful metal Cure to enhance the #1 Annual water star. The Dragon Pagoda protection talisman has many different parts to the cure and when combined, this makes an extremely powerful Cure and enhancer for wealth, education, study and overall good luck cure when placed in the southeast in 2016.
If you own or work for a business that rely on sales or related to industries supplying flowers or plants, the southeast can be a very rewarding area if you activate it in 2016 and especially so if there is a main door here.
Cure and enhancement summary for #1 star in southeast in 2016
- Place a Sheng Chi Cure and Enhancer in the southeast of your home or office
- A brass Wu-Lou would be good for a bedroom that falls into the southeast along with blue colours.
- When using furniture in the southeast, aim for something with a flowing design such as a vintage style bed or chair with a curve on the back
- If this is a study, place creative enhancements like displaying an abacus, calligraphy set, artist tools like canvas, brushes etc.
Kun 2 Black In 2016, the Kun 2 Black visits the centre.
The centre of any home, office or shop in 2016 is not a very nice area at all and best left alone if possible, which is a lot easier said than done; the centre of my home is in the hallway and upstairs bathroom so not an easy area to avoid which is the reason why we write the advice on the cures and enhancers to be used each year as not everyone has the luxury of abandoning bedrooms or offices for a whole year.
Because the Kun 2 Black star has flown into the central palace for 2016, this can cause more problems than usual as the centre permeates around the rest of the eight palaces so it is very important to follow the advice below even if you do have the space to be able to leave the centre dormant for the year of the Monkey.
The best rooms to have in the centre in 2016 are rooms such as a bathroom, utility room, pantry, guest bedroom, cloakroom, dressing room, storage room or other room that is not used for long periods in the day.
If the centre of your home or office falls in a room such as a bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room, this will inevitably activate its malicious effects.
The #2 black Annual Flying Star can cause problems related to the health of those under its influence bringing with it sickness, disease, bad luck, stress, stomach and digestive problems, bloated feeling, gossip, back stabbing, family disharmony and distress. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4.
You need to place a salt water cure, Wu Lou if you have one and also six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon in the centre to weaken the malevolent effects of the #2 star. Other good traditional cures for the centre this year are a metal singing bowl and also place more round metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative influence in the centre of your home or room, the salt cure and six coins are the most important cures.
Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the year. Make sure there are no red items, bright lights or burning candles in this area. Do not worry if you have these colours in the centre from permanent decoration such as sofas or paint on the walls, just introduce colours such as white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like.
More importantly, do not decorate the centre of the home with red colour or triangle shape items and most important avoid burning candles or leaving bright fiery coloured lights on for too long during the year.
Avoidance of this area is the best cure although I know this is hard so try and follow the advice and try and aim to keep the centre as quiet as possible during the year of the Monkey.
Cure and enhancement summary for #2 star in centre in 2016
- Hang six Chinese coins tied in red ribbon.
- Place a salt water cure.
- Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.
- A metal singing bowl is very good as is a stainless steel Dog bowl.
- Avoid using red colour in this room and refrain from displaying triangle shape or fiery pictures.
- Avoid candles or bright lights at all costs.
Chen 3 Jade In 2016 can be heard in the northwest.
With the #3 Jade Annual Flying Star entering the northwest in 2016, beware of possible theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers and legal problems. The best cure for this is to keep the northwest as calm and quiet as possible. Try and keep the northwest of your home as quiet as possible this year and avoid building work or renovations throughout 2016.
To remedy the effects of the annual 3 star, use red decorative objects, candles lamps and lights. A nice simple cure is by placing a red floor mat or a table lamp with a red shade. Do not use metal (metal colour is OK) to control this energy for you will aggravate it, restricting the beneficial influence brought by auspicious monthly stars in certain months and magnify its negative influence.
Some books or websites that you may have read will tell you the #3 wood star is a good star in period 8, in our opinion it is still an unpredictable star and you should not try and activate it unless you are qualified to do so or you have used our software and it advises water. It will become more usable towards the later part of the 20-year period 8 cycle. I have even seen websites and books recommending placing water here, do this and you will invite arguments, divorce and legal problems without taking into account your land formations, period, mountain and water stars, please be very careful.
A very important cure that you must use this year is a coiled Dragon statue (long zhui zhenzhu) as this will help to avoid legal issues, disputes and arguments; the Coiled Dragon will also promote fame and career; we have included the coiled Dragon statue in all of our 2016 Deluxe Cures and Enhancers kits. A vital cure for the northwest in 2016 is a Long Yu Quan Bi talisman which helps to protect wealth and avoid legal issues, arguments and disputes which is why we have included this standard in all our Annual cures and enhancers kits.
Cure and enhancement summary for #3 star in northwest in 2016
- Place a light in the northwest if you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
- Do not hang wind chimes in this area of the house, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.
- Place a Long Zhui Zhenzhu coiled Dragon statue in the northwest of your home or office
- During hot summer months, make sure the fan is not located in the northwest.
- Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2016 and check smoke alarms.
- Place a Long Yu Quan Bi Talisman in the northwest for 2016
- Check through everything before signing documents if office is in the northwest.
- Try and keep this area quiet and do not disturb with loud noises.
- Try not to let children or noisy animals play in the northwest.
- Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well. If backstabbing occurs this year, focus on the northwest and make sure everything is as it should be
Sun 4 Green In 2016, Sun 4 Green sits in the west.
The Sun wood 4 occupies the west palace for 2016 and if the cures and enhancers are placed it can be very good for romance, research, study/exams and more.
The #4 Flying Star is a conditional star but is auspicious in period 8 (2004 – 2024). The #4 star governs romance, travel, creativity, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. If you wish to enhance this wonderful star, I would recommend activating It with a Yin water feature or place objects and decoration that are blue in colour or black.
A little know and extremely powerful cure and enhancer in 2016 and one that can only be used in certain years is by placing a cure known as a Xiang Xin Yuan wish and romance enhancer in the west. This cure will enhance the #4 romance and literacy/career star and at the same time dissipate the inherent metal energy of the west, this really is a lovely cure and enhancer at the same time.
A yin water feature is fresh still water, Ideally indoor bamboo shoots growing in a small amount of water or fresh flowers in super clean water, you can also use just a bowl of water, whatever you use the water must be kept squeaky clean as if it becomes stagnant even slightly it will cause you relationship problems so please be sure to keep this topped up and fresh. The water must not be moving though unless a professional Feng Shui Practitioner has advised you or you use our Feng Shui software.
Please take note that if your front door is here, this 4 star can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the cures are not put in place. Having a door in the west alongside a Xiang Xin Yuan wish and romance enhancer can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel which is favoured in Monkey years and can bring fantastic results.
Do not use fire or metal in this area or colours white, silver. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours blue or black in the way of a floor mat, cushions, tablecloth or such like.
Avoid fire element and colours red, pink, lilac, burgundy or purple. Good colours are blue or black. Good place for an indoor Yin water feature (bamboo or fresh flowers). If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes though as it could aggravate the #4 star. Keep the west area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here. Spend time here if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
Cure and enhancement summary for #4 star in west in 2016
- Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
- For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added to the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
- Avoid displaying too much metal objects here especially large heavy ornaments.
- Fresh flowers or small pots of green leafy or flowering plants can be displayed in this spot of the house to lift the qi. Blue flowers are a good choice.
- If you have mandarin Ducks this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
- Place a Xiang Xin Yuan wish and romance enhancer in the west
- A Chinese or western calligraphy set is very good to place in the west for 2016 if you want to enhance creativity as an artist or writer or student, if you can place it close to where you study/write/paint.
- Place photos of loved ones or images of love to enhance relationships or attract new love. This can done with photos, paintings or statues, make sure there is always a pair in the image.
- For romance a Dragon headed Tortoise or Mandarin Ducks is very good
The 5 Yellow In 2016, the annual 5 Yellow is located in the northeast palace.
In 2016, we also have Sui Po the year breaker present in the northeast which will make the influence harder to control without the right cures in place. It is imperative that you do not undertake any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in this part of your house or office between February 4th 2016 and February 3rd 2017.
The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen)’ in Chinese, is one of the annual afflictions. It is a very volatile star. It has no gender and no trigram and is highly dangerous when disturbed. When disturbed, its malevolent influence brings disaster, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. Do be careful with it. Stillness together with metal cures can keep its negative influences at bay.
You should not disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with their garden in the northeast should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work.
You should place a salt water cure, six rod wind chime, Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and also place more metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative.
Wherever the Five Yellow is, you must never disturb its position by lots of drilling or knocking activities. So please be careful when you hang your metal six rod wind chime to control its influence in the northeast sector of your house or business.
You must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in this sector. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.
If your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard are located in the northeast, this is good for you this year, because these areas are not used much and therefore the negative power is not activated, I would still place the cures though regardless of what room is located in the northeast.
Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place a six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours white, silver, gold or copper.
Cure and enhancement summary for #5 star in northeast in 2016
- Avoid playing loud music in the northeast of the home or room.
- Do not decorate your northeast area with red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily for 2016.
- Place a salt water cure in the northeast of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
- Display a Yi Fan Feng Shun talisman in the northeast to weaken the negative influence of the annual #5
- Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the northeast corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
- Metal objects such as six Chinese metal coins tied in a red ribbon and/or a brass Dragon can be placed in this corner too. Avoid using red dragons.
- If you have a main door in the northeast make sure you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut.
Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien 6 White fly’s into the south palace in 2016
The # 6 White is a benevolent star and as an annual star, its position in the south in 2016 is usually excellent for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the property market, so for those with a main door, office/study in the south would benefit greatly however, the Three Killings is located in the south in 2016 and can bring a great deal of problems if disturbed so please treat the south with caution this year.
Those who have main doors or offices in the south should aim to use another door to enter and leave the home this year if possible; if this is not possible, please be sure to avoid banging doors and keep the hinges well oiled. Whilst 6 White represents attainment, if the #6 annual star is located in a bedroom it can cause problems with the chest or hands. If you do have a bedroom in the south place some blue cloth like a rug or duvet cover to dissipate its energy.
A very powerful cure and enhancer for the south this year is to place a Hotei Buddha. The Hotei can help avoid a lot of problems that can be brought on when the Three Killings visit the south. The Hotei Buddha really is a beautiful and powerful cure especially as it is one of the most traditional cures in Feng Shui.
If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the south place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the buildings and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Feng Shui Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work or consult our Tong Shu date selection software.

Tui 7 Red The Lofty Wind of Tui flies in to the north in 2016
The 7 red star is a negative influence in Period 8 especially now we are over half way through period 8. The trigram Tui is also known as ’Broken Soldier’. This is a fighting star. When combined with another untimely star, its negative nature denotes assault, deceit, violence and robbery.
#7 Red brings a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing in the north in 2016 and will need to be handled with care. This will be particularly so if the combination of the facing and sitting stars of this sector suggest such a scenario. If you have had a Feng Shui consultation or use our Feng Shui software it may not be as bad, as the facing and mountain stars may be auspicious.
Security should be a priority if you have a door or window in the north of your home or office and you should take the time to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics. an important wealth enhancer and health protector for 2016 is the Long Zhen Zhu Talisman that must be placed in the north and is a stunning set of ten specially created auspicious I-Ching Coins based on the yang side with four Chinese characters and the yin side with a Dragon chasing a pearl (you must not use normal i-ching coins), the ten coins are hung from a red good luck pang chang mystic knot along with a Trigram Gua protection charm and tablet key with special colorations. Another vital cure is the Baohu Yizhi calabash amulet as this is a very powerful health and wealth enhancer and is included in all of our deluxe 2016 Cures kits.
The best advice I can give is check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors in the north in 2016 and also read the recommendations below .
The best remedy is to stay away from this sector or try to use it less frequently. You can also use more blue in your decoration. Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it and don’t forget that the negative influence of the monthly stars are usually of the earth elements.

This is the governing flying star for the next twenty years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying stars system.
Wealth, fame. Romance, prestige and distinction can be expected especially if you have an office here or a main door in 2016, even if you do not we can still activate it and welcome some very pleasing influences. It brings good fortune and exciting times although this year will require more care and the effects could be weakened or have an opposite effect if Tai Sui is disturbed.
Do not place heavy metal in the southwest this year, as doing so will weaken the good earth and can cause more problems rather than enhance the area. Please do not take this affliction lightly in 2016, although the #8 star can bring a lot of positive attributes to those with bedrooms, offices and front doors in the southwest this year, if Tai Sui is disturbed by ground-breaking or loud noise, there could be problems which is why we have the most vital two cures in our cures and enhancers kits for the southwest this year which are the Chu Men Chien Tsai Master Cure to enhance all areas of life and the Guan Zhong Tai Sui Plaque which works in synergy with the Master Cure by appeasing Tai Sui so that the Master Cure can enhance the home or office. I can honestly say these are the two most vital cures for the southwest in the year of the Yang Fire Monkey which is why we have included both standard in all of our Annual Cures and Enhancers kits.
Whilst wealth is forecast, beware of overworking as this can cause you health problems. The extra work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular stress related resulting in high blood pressure, ears or kidney problems. You should make time for your family as whilst it is nice to enjoy the success we can often overlook things that are far more important like the ones we love and also our health.
