We are fast approaching the New Lunar Year of the Yang Wood Green Dragon which begins February 10th, 2024. The first day of the Chinese astrological/Feng Shui year, however, is different from this popular Chinese New Year Day, which is calculated from the Chinese lunar calendar. Chinese astrological/Feng Shui are calculated from the solar calendar and begins February 4th this year, which is known as the first day of spring.
We have crossed over the threshold of the Winter Solstice on our annual journey from darkness into Light. From now until the Chinese Solar New Year that begins on February 4th, 2024, we are in a period of flux as one cycle winds down and another is birthed. During this transition, major shifts in our Planet’s Light and Energy occur as matter rearranges itself.
This is why the week of February 4th is so important as it marks the midpoint between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. In the west, we celebrate February 2nd as Ground Hog’s Day (will he look back to the Solstice and so we have six more weeks of cold weather or will he look forward to the Spring Equinox.) Throughout history, February 2nd was known as “the Festival of Lights” in many countries or Candlemass by the Christians.
With the direction/location of the annual Feng Shui Flying Stars changing the 4th of February every new year, the annual 3 afflictions and the location of the evil star 5 also change in every home, office, building, city and country in the world. They are really important and need to be addressed.
Annual 3 Afflictions and the Location of the Evil Star #5
Tau Sui (Grand Duke of Jupiter) location is in the Southeast -122.5-127.5 degrees
San Sha -Three killings location is in the South – 142.5- 217.5 degrees
Sui Po (Wrath of the Grand Duke) location is in the Northwest – 292.5 –
Tai Sui – Grand Duke of Jupiter
The Grand Duke of Jupiter resides in the Southeast this year. Do not dig, cut, hammer or renovate in this sector, as it can bring bad luck, loss, illness or misfortune. Try to avoid having your office, meeting or conference room in this sector. Do not sit facing this direction, as the Grand Duke does not like to be confronted! Make sure you sit with your back to the Southeast. If you sit facing northwest, he will support you.
Sui Po– Year Breaker
Sui Po is also known as the “Wrath of the Grand Duke” as it opposes him. Do not renovate, dig or activate this area with noise or harsh light. Disrupting this sector could lead to serious consequences. Do not sit with your back to the northwest, but face it. This works with the Tai Shi energy in the Southeast that you don’t want to confront. So, sit facing northwest this year!!
Sans Sha – the Three Killings
San Sha also known as the Three Killings resides ion the South this year. These degrees are often associated with negative consequences. They can create obstacles, misfortunes such as theft or loss of wealth, as well as recurring health problems and professional setbacks. Do not disturb the Three Killings by doing renovations or soil digging. You will run the risk of attracting serious financial losses, damaged reputation and possible health complications. Do not sit with your back to this direction. Again, face Northwest.
The constant opening and closing of a front door can create a disturbance within the home or office. If your front door is regularly used and faces either the Southeast or Northwest this year, extra care should be taken to avoid any negative consequences mentioned above. So please be sure to oil the hinges and avoid slamming the door! One Chinese method of protection is to place a pair of Fu Dogs (Temple Lions) by your door.
The above conflicted sectors can also affect you for example if you:
Play loud music or hammer
Have TV or many other electrical features here
Have a water purifier here
Have construction work in your neighborhood in these directions
Once disturbed, they can bring accidents, illness, money loss or robbery. It is therefore wise to respect them if you can.
Wu Wang – The “Evil Yellow number 5 Star” (五黄)
is known as the most ominous star in the Flying Star Chart. This inauspicious Earth star brings about personal tragedies such as illnesses, accidents, financial losses and relationship conflicts.
In 2024, the Five Yellow star moves to the West. Any renovations or groundbreaking work should be avoided in the westerly direction. Avoid stirring up the area with excessive noise, bright lights, and excessive activity. Problems will also arise if the Five Yellow Star is situated at the main door, the stove, or the bed as that constitutes a negative flying star combination each month.
We have also moved out of the past twenty year cycle which was ruled by yang earth into a new 20 year cycle which is ruled by #9 fire. This means the water placement directions have changed for both indoors and outdoors. For the last 20 years the primary water direction/location for wealth was the SW and the secondary direction/location was the East. Now, for the next 20 years the primary direction is North and the secondary direction is SE. But, there is a problem as Tai Sui, the Grand Duke of Jupiter occupies the SE for both 2024 and 2025 – and you don’t want running water here as it will aggravate him!! So hold off until 2026 for water placement in the new directions.
