2018 Flying Stars Analysis
© Written by Daniel Hanna 2017
On the 4th February 2018, we will have the #9 purple star (You Bi Xin) visit the central earth palace (heaven heart) as it did in 2017. While #9 star is an auspicious star, when visiting the central palace, it can cause disasters relating to water and fire, such as earthquakes, volcano’s landslides, and floods. We forecasted this for 2017 with 100% accuracy and, based on our predictions, thousands of our clients prepared for the year of the Rooster and were able to enjoy a great year.
The upshot for everyone is to be financially cautious during 2018. Make sure you place your cures and enhancers on the 4th February. You’ll then be able to lessen the adverse effects of the global economy and turn a potentially bad year into a good one. I know this could be a contentious point for many, but I’d love to see some corrections with house prices. House prices at present are far too high for my grandchildren to step up on the property ladder.
2018 could be a year of conflict for people born in the year of the Dragon. Look after your health and do not overexert yourself. For more information on your personal Chinese Animal for 2018 click here.
The 2018 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.
The #9 star is located in the centre from 4th February 2018 and this can cause problems for a home and business and specialist cures and enhancers are needed and of course our annual 2018 cures and enhancers kits allow for this, we have put together a very powerful kit where there are some very special talismans and charms included in the kits as standard as they are crucial to be placed this year. We have also published our 2018 Feng Shui guide.
Many of these cures and enhancers we are using in 2018 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 2018 Feng Shui cures and enhancers annual kit is not just some gimmicky cures put together; each cure 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 2018 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 2018 and general bad things for the year but despite what they are predicting, I am very much looking forward to the year of the Dog 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 2018 read on…
Are you really prepared for 2018?
Surely the 2018 cures and enhancers will make me exempt from any problems?
If your bedroom is in the east, west, northeast, north or northwest in 2018 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 2018 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 2018, year of the Yang Earth Dog, we will be placing every single Feng Shui cure and enhancer that I talk about on this page 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. three years ago, 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 19 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 the year of the Dog are our 2018 annual cures kit and the world’s most powerful and most widely used all new Feng Shui 2018 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 (28 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 eighteen 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 north 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 west and north in 2018 is a bowl of ultra clean, still water although this is not as powerful as the Salt Water Cure and needs to be checked daily and requires care so it doesn’t get stagnant or get covered in a layer of dust and bugs. The water must be kept squeaky clean otherwise it will cause you many problems so please be sure to check this regularly. 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 southeast and southwest, you should try to place some real quartz crystal from the 4th February 2018 or objects that are made from an earth material like ceramic and make sure that any objects you place in the southeast and s southwest during the year of the Dog are square in shape as this represents earth, this will help enhance wealth and luck in your home or office in 2018. The most influential and imperative cure and enhancer in 2018 is called a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure and this cure can only be used in Yang Earth Dog years; the last time this was used was in 1958. This cure is needed in the east for the year of the Yang Earth Dog to enhance and protect the occupants of the home or office in 2018 especially for the eldest daughter or female of a home or business. If you want overall protection for the whole of your home or office this year, I would recommend taking a look at our 2018 Cures and Enhancers 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.
2018 is the 4716th year of the Chinese calendar.
In China, the solar calendar of the Wu Xu (Yang Earth Dog) year starts on 4th February 2018.
- The first day of the Hsia (solar) calendar is February 4th 2018, this is the day you would place your Feng Shui cures and enhancers.
- The Dog year ends February 3rd 2019
- 2018 is a Yang Earth Dog year (Wu Xu)
- Chinese New Year falls on February 16th 2018 (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 2018 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 2018 you will see from below that the #5 star falls into the north 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 2018 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 2018 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:
As we have the #2 black star enter the west of the lo shu in 2018 and special cures and enhancers are needed more than ever but at the very least to help disperse the negative effects, you should hang a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and a salt water cure in the west and north of your home or office this year to control the #5 and #2 stars. This is very important in 2018 especially if you have a main door, bedroom, office, lounge or other important room in the west, east, north or northeast.
The Three Killings:
It is important that you try not to make any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the north part of your house or office between February 4th 2018 and February 4th 2019 as we have both the Three Killings located in the north but we also have the annual 5 yellow here for the year. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes, digging foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. If you have no option but to perform work in the north, I would advise that you place a 6 Metal rod wind chime in the north during 2018 around the time the work is being carried out.
Like 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 and in 2018, we also have the #3 visiting star in the northwest which can cause problems for the middle son and it could affect ears, kidneys or blood-related. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui gold plated plaque for 2018 to pay respect and appease the Deity along with an Arowana fish sitting on bed of coins to enhance the annual #1 star. This is really important this year and we have included the Arowana fish sitting on bed of coins and Jiang Wu Tai Sui gold plated plaque in all our annual cures and enhancers kits.
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2018 is in the southeast as we have Tai Sui located in the northwest for the year of the Yang Earth Dog. You should treat this area the same as any of the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities in the southeast this year. If disturbed, this area can and usually will cause immediate health problems especially with regards to the elderly, so please be very careful. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Dog year, you would need to display a Jiebaopinchuan Master Cure and Cai Leishui crystal talisman which we have included in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
Kan 1 White In 2018 resides in the northwest.
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 northwest of every home and office around the world for 2018 and the northwest has an inherent metal energy and there is a nice relationship between the two stars from a five elements point of view when metal meets water. The northwest is a lovely area for the eldest male of a home or business in 2018 although also fortunate for all males. The northwest is a wonderful area on the whole although we also have Tai Sui located here for the year and it is vital that this area is treated with peace and quiet along with the necessary Cures and Enhancers for 2018.
If your home or office has a front door in the northwest in 2018, it is very important that you do not slam the door as loud noises can activate the maleficent effects of Tai Sui. You must also aim to avoid any internal doors or windows being slammed in this area during 2018 and avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs; if you have no option but to undergo heavy work this year, please make sure that you follow the advice below and also have the relevant cures in place.
The traditional method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui Plaque along with an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins to pay respect and appease the deity. By paying respect to Tai sui, you can avoid the problems that are prevalent with this annual affliction. These are two key cures for the northwest in 2018 although please do not worry if you cannot afford these; there are a lot of other options you can implement to weaken the troubles that Tai sui can bring.When using colours for the north in 2018, blue would be a good colour scheme to use in this area.
If you cannot afford to use the cures I have recommended or simply do not wish to use traditional cures, I would place some water colours in the way of bedding, pillows, lampshades, rugs etc such as blacks, greys and blues. If you have a bed in the northwest this year, I would place a brass Wu Lou talisman here to protect wealth.
You should avoid fire colours in the northwest this year as this will drain the energy of the annual #1 star. This is not a good area for candles in 2018.
If using furniture and decorations in the northwest this year to enhance the #1 star, you should place furniture with waves and ripples as this is a great water cureCure and enhancement summary for #1 star in northwest in 2018
- A brass Wu-Lou would be good for a bedroom that falls into the northwest along with blue, black, grey or charcoal colours. This is especially so if you are not in good health and if you cannot buy a wu lou place a heavy round object close to your bed but avoid candles or colours red, pink, purple or any fire colours.
- Place a Jiang Wu Tai Sui plaque in the northwest in 2018 to appease and pay respect to Tai Sui this year.
- Avoid candles or fire colours like red, pink, purple, orange or burgundy in the northwest in 2018, blues, blacks, grey or charcoal are good colours to use.
- Place a statue of an Arowana fish sitting on a bed of coins in the northwest to enhance and protect existing and new wealth.
- Metal objects are good to place in the NW in 2018.
Kun 2 Black In 2018, the Kun 2 Black visits the west.
The west in 2018 is not a very nice area at all and if possible, it is best left alone although I know that it is easy for me to say which is why we write the annual flying star recommendations each year as not everyone has the luxury of moving bedrooms or offices. If you have a bedroom, office or other important room in the northwest and unable to move out please read this section carefully.
If the west of your home or office falls in to a bathroom, utility room, guest bedroom or other less important room, do not panic this is great news for you and the effects will be much weaker than if you have a bedroom, living room or office in the west this year and for Michael and Jo’s home, this is their master bedroom so I know that they will definitely have their cures and enhancers in place as soon as the annual stars change in 2018.
For the west of your home or office in 2018, you need to place a salt water cure, Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon, 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 northwest corner of your home or room.
The most powerful cure you can place in the west this year to weaken the effects of the #2 annual star is the Guanshiyin protection brass bell. You should also place metal cures such as a Wu Lou, metal singing bowl and many more providing they are not menacing looking; a round, smooth metal shape is the best option to dissipate its negative influence in the west of your home or office in 2018.
A gold coloured three legged Toad is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but can also protect your wealth for the year. Make sure there are no red items, bright lights or burning candles in the northwest in your home or office as the fire element will feed the earth and activate the malevolent effects of the #2 star. If you already have these colours in the northwest, it is best to remove them but do not worry too much if you can’t, just introduce metal colours such as white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or any other way you can think of. If you have a main door that falls in the west in 2018 you would also be advised to hang a Ba Gua mirror outside to deflect the negative energy.
Any females who are expecting a first-born baby in 2018 or are trying for a baby this year should try to avoid this area if their bedroom is located in the west. If you are unable to avoid this, please make sure that you have the necessary cures in place along with metal colours. If you have our software, check the Min Gua section to find your best sleeping direction. A Metal Wu Lou beside your bed is a good cure if you have no option but to sleep in the west of your home this year as this gives elemental support to the west (metal) and also symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star. Because the west is associated with the youngest daughter of the home the youngest female member of the home or business can be affected so make sure if she sleeps, works or spends a lot of time here all cures are placed. Be very careful in June 2018 as the west is at its worst then.
More importantly, do not decorate the northwest room with red colour or triangle shapes items and most important avoid burning candles or leaving bright fiery coloured lights on for too long during the year 2018.
Cure and enhancement summary for #2 star in west in 2018
- Hang a Guanshiyin Protection bell in the west of your home or office in 2018
- Place a salt water cure
- You do not need all Dragons and bells, you can use any metal ornament as long as it is not sharp or aggressive looking, and believe it or not a good cure is a round metal dog bowl or weight lifters weights.
- Hang six Chinese coins tied in red ribbon.
- A brass wealth ingot is good for protecting wealth.
- Place a gold coloured three legged Toad with an i-ching coin underneath.
- Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.

- Avoid using red colour in this room and refrain from displaying triangle shape or fiery pictures.
- Avoid candles or bright lights at all costs. Check or upgrade smoke alarms and other fire prevention methods.
Chen 3 Jade In 2018 can be heard in the northeast.
As we have the #3 Jade Annual Flying Star entering the northeast in 2018, please beware of possible theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers and legal problems. Try and keep the west of your home as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations.
To remedy the ill effects of the annual #3 star, you should use red decorative objects such as candles, lamps and lights. A nice simple cure to use in the northeast in 2018 is 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.
If your property or front door faces northeast in 2018, you must try to avoid the doors from slamming when entering or leaving your home or office. You should avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs in 2018 if possible. If you have an office or shop door in the northeast this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible and if you have children in your home, try to keep these doors from being slammed.
For the northeast in 2018, it is important to place a Baohulu protection gourd. We had this gourd hand made for us and carefully placed together with red ribbon and six row rhombus signifying wealth and protection for the building and embossed with a symbol of wealth, luck and health protection against the annual #3 star.
Another very powerful cure for the northeast this year is a Dragon Chasing Pearl tablet huo long ming zhu (fire dragon with treasures) which should be hung in the northeast of your home or office in 2018 to dissipate and remove the risk of legal problems, disputes and arguments, fraud and money loss this year.
Cure and enhancement summary for #3 star in northeast in 2018
- Place a light in the northeast If you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
- Do not hang wind chimes of any material in the northeast in 2018, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.
- Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during 2018 and check smoke alarms.
- Place a Baohulu protection gourd to suppress the negative influences of the annual #3 in the northeast this year
- Check through everything before signing documents if your office is in the northeast.
- Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well.
- Place a Dragon Chasing Pearl tablet in the northeast in 2018 for protection
Sun 4 Green In 2018, Sun 4 Green sits in the south.
The Sun wood 4 occupies the south palace for 2018 and this is a conditional star but it is auspicious in Period 8 (2004 – 2024) and governs romance, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development when activated correctly. If you want to enhance this wonderful star, you would do so by using a yin water feature or introduce some water colours such as blue or black. This is a good area to have a pair of Mandarin Ducks, Dragon headed Tortoise or photos of you and your partner/family. With the wood of the #4 star combined with the inherent #9 fire energy, this is a glowing relationship and we can expect a lovely synergy in the south with help from the advice below.
To enhance this wonderful influence, you must use a Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer in the south of your home or office during 2018 which is a very special peach blossom enhancer Talisman Shou charm and also an extremely powerful manifestation enhancer for the south this year.
Without cures, 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 south combined with the relevant cures and enhancers in place can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel.
A beautiful and powerful cure for the south this year is the Taohua Mandarin ducks statue which is a very special talisman charm to enhance peach blossom, Peach blossom is so important this year as we have the south has the #4 romance, career, wealth and academic star which is why we have included the Taohua Mandarin ducks in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
Cure and enhancement summary for #4 star in south in 2018
- Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
- Place a Taohua Mandarin ducks statue in the south of your home or office
- For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added on the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
- Avoid displaying too much metal objects here especially large heavy ornaments.
- Place a Shou Kun qi Fu Wish & romance enhancer
- 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 or green flowers are a good choice.
- If you have the Taohua mandarin Ducks, this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.
- 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 is very good
The 5 Yellow In 2018, the annual 5 Yellow is located in the north palace.
For those who know me will, they will know that I am very different in the way that I deliver the annual advice compared to other Feng Shui experts. I do not like to use scare tactics or push sales on people and firmly believe the power of the mind is as powerful as Feng Shui and providing you have good intentions, you can turn bad into good; sadly this year the north is not good at all and my advice is treat the north with extreme care in 2018, good Feng Shui is actually also being aware of potential problems and whilst it may sound uncharacteristically negative of me to talk so down about the north, it is my duty to let you know how bad it can be this year.
As I mentioned above, I will be taking care when treating the north this year as this is where my main door is located; am I worried about it? Absolutely not. I will be making sure that I have my Salt water cure, Six chinese i-ching coins tied in a row and six rod metal wind chime all placed in the north for the year and will be keeping noise to a minimum when possible, especially when using my main door.
You should not disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with their garden in the north 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 north sector of your house or business.
If your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard are located in the north, 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 north.
Cure and enhancement summary for #5 star in north in 2018
- • Avoid playing loud music in the north of the home or room in 2018.
- Do not decorate your room with red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily.
- Place a salt water cure in the north of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
- Place a Brass Wu-Lou in the north corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
- Do not place red objects, burning candles or triangular shaped furnishing in this sector.
- Most of all, avoid disturbing the north at all costs. Any form of renovations that needs to be done, plan it for another year. It is worth keeping this in mind.
- 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 in the north.
- Replace or at the very least cleanse your Ba Gua mirror in the north especially if you have a door here.
- If you have a main door in the north make sure you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut.
- If you use a fan or other machines that creates noise or vibration try and avoid placing it in the north part of a room, get yourself a good compass.
Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien 6 White fly’s into the southwest palace in 2018
6 White is a benevolent money star and as an annual star, its position in the southwest in 2018 is excellent for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the property market, so for those with a main door, office/study in the southwest will benefit greatly.
Those who have main doors or offices in the southwest sector can expect excellent business and career success when the southwest is activated correctly this year. However, whilst 6 White represents accomplishment, if the #6 annual star is located in a bedroom it can cause problems with the liver and/or legs. If you do have a bedroom in the southwest in 2018, place some blue cloth like a rug or duvet cover to dissipate its energy.
A crucial cure for the southwest in 2018 is a Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman. This is an extremely powerful and much needed cure and enhancer in 2018 for when the #6 flies into the southwest and a special cure is needed as we have the inherent energy of the #2 earth sickness star which can drain the energy of the auspicious visiting star although overall, the southwest is a good area during the year of the Dog and when activated with the Wu Fu five bats of wealth and success talisman, you can enhance and protect wealth luck in your home and office.

Tui 7 Red The Lofty Wind of Tui flies into the east in 2018
The 7 red star has a negative influence in Period 8 and can bring a lot of problems to homes and offices around the world in 2018 if not treated carefully. 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. This year 2018 it falls into the wood element of the east which places both stars in severe conflict and can cause many problems if left untreated.
#7 Red brings a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing in the east in 2018 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.
An essential cure and enhancer for the east in 2018 would be to place a Huaxianweiyi Sheng Chi Cure and Enhancer in the east of your home or office. This is a traditional and very powerful Feng Shui cure that works in a similar way to Chinese New Year couplets in the sense that they are used as a cure and enhancer for this unhealthy combination in the east in 2018, this combination is known as “puncture the heart sha” (穿心煞) and said to cause health problems with arms, legs and liver and also cause many legal issues, disputes, arguments and the possibility of robbery and theft in a home or business. This is one of the most important cures to place in 2018.
The best advice I can give is to check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors in the east in 2018 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.

Ken 8 White can be found in the southeast in 2018
This is the governing flying star for the next seven years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying stars system and is located in the southeast for 2018, so if you have a door, office or any other important room in the southeast, this is great news for you although we also have Sui Po located here so care will be needed and if possible, you should try using another door this year although this is easier said than done for the majority but If you have all of your cures and enhancers in place, you can still activate the #8 star and leave Sui Po undisturbed. The Annual #8 star can be activated by human activity and normally, it would be encouraged to use this room as much as possible and with Sui Po here, this room must be kept calm and quiet which is why the right cures and enhancers are so important in the southeast this year.
As with every new Solar year in Feng Shui, it is vital to place a very special Master cure and the most powerful and important cure and enhancer in 2018 is called a jiébàopínchuán Master cure and must only be used in a Yang Earth Dog (Wu Xu) year; this powerful amulet and protective talisman cure is used during Yang Earth Dog years to enhance the annual #8 wealth star. This cure is used to protect and enhance wealth and good luck in 2018, especially for the eldest daughter or female of the home or office if a daughter is not present although equally needed for males, especially for wealth. This is the most vital cure for the whole of any home or office which is why we have included it in all of our 2018 Cures and Enhancers kits.
Whilst wealth is forecasted in 2018 for the southeast, beware of overworking as this can cause health problems. The extra work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular, stress related problems as this can bring high blood pressure 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. If you are older you need to be careful with limbs and joints so please take care in the icy weather and no risky sports if you have a bedroom in the southeast.
Another crucial cure for the southeast in 2018 is the Cai Leishui Crystal talisman. This cure and enhancer talisman is an excellent enhancer for wealth in 2018 and should be placed in the southeast, which in 2018 can bring in good luck and supposedly eight different types of blessings. This beautiful glass crystal teardrop is of the highest quality and produces amazing results as well as creating the most amazing display of rainbows if placed near a sunny window.

Li 9 Purple is found in the centre in 2019
You Bi Li 9 Purple can be found in the centre in 2018 and this can cause mixed results and can bring both fortunate and unfortunate results when left untreated during the year of the Dog. The central palace has a tendency to resonate throughout the other 8 palaces so it is important that this area is treated with the appropriate cures and recommendations below.
To enhance the positive energies of the centre of your home or office in 2018, you should place a Fu shi jian earth globe for wealth and success for wealth protection and overall luck. If you cannot place in the centre place it in the southeast and twirl clockwise once a day. For business place a Dragon beside it looking onto the globe for protection for your business and point the Dragon face towards the part of the world that you live in so if you live in the UK you point it towards the UK but try and angle the Dragon so he faces a wide area like Europe as an example.
If you want to enhance fertility you can display peanuts in shells (groundnuts) or any seed products like black or red melon seeds (Gua zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’ and for the Chinese this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means the birth of many children. You should display them anywhere in the bedroom and of course be careful if anyone in the home suffers with nut allergies.
Another imperative cure for the centre for 2018 is a Wealth and romance charm. This beautiful Charm is all of the wealth and protection enhancers you can think off in one powerful charm enhancer.
