2008 Flying Stars Analysis
On February 4th 2008 we enter a new Chinese year (year 4705th in the Chinese calendar), the year of the Yang earth Rat (Wu Zii). The 2008 Xuan Kong annual flying stars full analysis is detailed below. Please do not get confused with solar and lunar calendars, more on this below.
You may have come across a few websites stating that 2008 is the 4706th Chinese New Year, if you cannot find the reason, here is an answer for you:
The Yellow King's appointment was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But they used the winter solstice day as the first day of the year. So the first winter solstice was on around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st means nothing to the Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C. for a year, then year 2008 is the 4706th Chinese year.
Every Chinese New Year we put together a valuable and essential Feng Shui cures and enhancer's kit of little known Feng Shui cures that can be placed at any time of the year. Many of these cures are secrets and although many websites have tried to copy them from us, they have not quite got the ingredients right. This kit is not just some gimmicky cures put together; they are very powerful cures that Feng Shui Masters and Practitioners throughout the world use. It does not matter how late in the year you place your cures kit, we have many clients who have even placed them towards the end of the year and still got great results.
If you want to avoid continuing sickness, arguments, bankruptcy, legal problems, loss of wealth, relationship problems, problems with the mouth, sore throat, chest problems, skin problems, car accidents, accidents involving metal and just overall bad luck or if you want to enhance the positive areas in 2008 read on…
2008 Yang Earth Rat (Wu Zi) Year
Are you prepared for 2008?
In 2008 we have the #1 white Star (Lu Cun) visit the centre earth palace and whilst #1 star it an auspicious star it can cause disasters relating to water and earth like earthquakes, volcano's, landslides, floods and even further tsunamis. The reason why we could see a sting in the tale is because the two elements water and earth are in conflict. Because the #1 star (water) relates to wealth and because we see a conflict in the elements the chances of an economic slowdown is likely in 2008 especially with regards to property (earth). Even with the enormous growth we have seen in Asia it is still likely to see even a downturn. Every year we work with hundreds of financial institutions and individuals making predictions on economics and are rarely wrong so take care with investments in 2008 and please spend wisely and of course make sure you place your annual cures and enhancers as this will help lessen the effects and turn a bad year into a good one.
Now that I have the doom and gloom out of the way there is good news as 2008 will bring in new political leadership with younger leaders taking the helm. 2008 can also be good for relationships as the #1 star is a peach blossom star, this is especially so if you activate your northeast and east sector of your home. There are many good aspects of 2008 and if you follow the advice below you WILL AVOID many problems and this is the reason why we introduced our annual cures kits back in 1999 so you can avoid many of the problems above.
Those born in the year of the Horse may be affected by the conflicting influences of the year of the Yang earth rat 2008.
The degree of influence varies from one person to another. One of the major considerations is the heavenly stem of the year in which one was born, so those who were born in 1942 & 2002 (water Horse) will have a rougher ride than those born in 1930 & 1990 (metal Horse). For more information on your personal Chinese Animal predictions for 2008 click here.
The forecast for the Horse may be inauspicious but please remember this is only one small influence in the big scheme of things in life. Things can turn out well despite this, if you turn your attention to the annual and monthly flying star forecast on the energies of the space you occupy in your home and office in order to reduce predicaments. And combine this with flying star software and date selection software you increase your chances of a good year even more.
Please do not start worrying if your bedroom, main door or office are located in the south and northwest, just start preparing to place your 2008 cures and enhancers kit to ensure a trouble free year, and of course make sure you sign up for our free Feng Shui monthly newsletter so you are kept up to date with the monthly flying stars giving you even more control of your destiny. I have my office in the south and it will not cause me any problems at all so please take the same attitude and all will be well.
As you may know we have given this advice on-line to hundreds of thousands of Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners and enthusiast for 9 years now and although we make suggestions on cures and enhancers we do not agree with many websites insisting that you have to spend hundreds of pounds each year on cures and enhancers, they are simply not needed.
There are two products I recommend, which are, our annual cures kit and the professional Feng Shui software, with over four years in development, 45 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. This software is used by hundreds of Feng Shui Master's. Practitioners, students and enthusiasts from over 118 different countries throughout the world.
What do I do with last year’s cures kit?
Many books or websites will tell you to throw away or 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 them ideally you should place outside under a full moon overnight or in direct sunlight for at least 4 hours and sprinkle with rock salt. Rinse under water (don't forget to dry them) in the morning and place them in the appropriate areas. This does not apply to the salt water cure, as this MUST be renewed every year without exception. 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 (17 years old) or Tsai Shen Yeh. We change our wind chime & Pi Yao every couple of years, 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.
My advice is even if you have our kit from nine 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?
Your home or office does not have to look like a Chinese restaurant to have good Feng Shui, 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. For the south and northwest of your home or office use good quality metal ornaments, a good shape is round as this represents metal but avoid menacing looking ornaments like metal knives or similar. I have some clients who hide cures like a set six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon hidden behind a picture or similar and still get great results.
An alternative to a salt water cure although nowhere near as powerful is a bowl of still ultra clean water with some flowers in if you want. The water must be kept squeaky clean though otherwise it will cause you many problems. I am not that keen on recommending using a bowl though as if they get dirty especially if you live in a hot country they can cause you many problems so please be careful if you do not use the salt cure.
So what is flying star (Xuan Kong)?
Flying star (Xuan Kong) Feng Shui is the most powerful form that most professional Practitioners use; it has absolutely nothing to do with astrology. It is an analysis of the five elements, land formations and star combinations that occupy your building. Each Chinese New Year these annual stars change, bringing good and bad energy.
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.

"Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week"
HOW TO FIND THE PALACES WITHIN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
Firstly, you need a floor plan of your home or office. This can be hand drawn but it should be more or less to scale. Define all the interior walls that indicate the different rooms.
Secondly, you need to divide your floor plan into 9 grids in proportion as shown below. Next, you need to know the compass direction of your home or office. If you need help taking compass readings please visit this page.
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 you will see from below that the #5 star falls into the west area for this home which is their main door and this will cause many problems if not attended too.
The 2008 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:
The Three Killings - is a direct translation from the Chinese 'San Sha'. This yearly affliction is mainly in the south (142.5º to 217.5º). In 2008 the south is severely afflicted with the three killings, Sui Po and the annual #5 yellow flying star so 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 2008 and February 3rd 2009. Nor should you disturb the ground by digging holes, building foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. Once disturbed, this affliction will bring about three types of misfortunes - financial loss, sickness and arguments. This is the worst out of all the annual afflictions and in our home and business we take this very seriously as in our 28 years experience with Feng Shui we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed.
Apart from not disturbing its ground, there are two other rules you should follow regarding the Three Killings. Firstly, if you are moving your desk around this year, never sit with your back to this direction (south). Secondly, it is better to face (south) this direction, especially if this is one of your four favourable personal directions.
Because I have my main office in the south one cure I shall definitely be using and one that is an intricate and an exceptionally powerful cure in 2008 and can only be used in certain years is by placing a six metal Dragon hanging Pagoda. The reason you can only use this cure in the south is because the Dragon is part of the three combinations (San He) and if placed correctly not only can it cure the negative effects of the south in 2008 it can also enhance a very inauspicious area making it an extremely powerful cure and enhancer. The Dragon hanging pagoda comes standard in our 2008 cures kit with full instructions for placement.
Another powerful and essential cure in 2008 and one that can only be used in certain years is known as Four Pillars Taiyang crystal enhancer and you need to place four pieces of crystals in the inter-cardinal directions SW, SE, NE & NW with an auspicious dynasty Chinese I-ching coin placed in the centre of the building, these also come in our 2008 cures kit with full instructions for placement.
If your front door faces the north in 2008, place a pair of Temple lions (not metal ones) just inside the house looking outwards as protective guardians for the year.
If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the south place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the building and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work.
Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) resides between 352.5º - 7.5º north.
Do not take this affliction lightly. Do not disturb the ground of this area at all costs.
North facing properties with front doors to the northwest must be careful not to allow the doors to slam and do not renovate or dig in this part for 2008.
If you are moving furniture around this year, especially your work desk, it is vital that you must never sit facing this 15º sector (north). If you confront Tai Sui, you will experience defeat; demotion, loss and any venture will be met with obstacles. Instead, sit with your back to the north and he will support you. Avoidance is the best cure.
The traditional Chinese method is to place a Pi Yao or dragon headed tortoise in the south sector of your home or office facing north where Tai Sui sits to appease him. Use a compass and take the reading from the middle of the home to place the Pi Yao or dragon headed tortoise accurately to face the 15º radius northwest.
If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the north place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the building and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work.
Sui Po (The year breaker)
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2008 is south. You should treat this area with the same respect as the other annual afflictions with no groundbreaking work, renovations or any noisy activities. If disturbed this area can and normally will cause immediate health problems especially for the elderly so please be very careful. If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the south place a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the building and where the work is being carried out and ideally you should contact a professional Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work.
The annual five yellow has flown to the south this year and because the south is associated with fire energy this is not good and the reason why so many cures are needed in 2008. It is highly recommended not to disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with gardens in the south of the property should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work. When disturbed, the Five Yellow can bring disaster, sickness, lawsuit and major loss of wealth. Do be careful with it.
The remedy is to hang a six-rod metal wind chime, six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon and a salt water cure in the south corner of the room.
Please do not start worrying if your bedroom or office are located in the south, just start preparing to place your 2008 cures and enhancers kit to 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. To give you even better control is by using our advanced Feng Shui software as this gives advanced analysis of every home or office facing any direction in any part of the world, I know I keep recommending this software but there is really nothing like it in the world.
How far do you take this no digging or no noisy equipment?
What if your garden is in the south or north? Does this mean no cutting the lawn or cutting back the trees with a noisy hedge trimmer in 2008? Of course you have to do these jobs and if you cannot avoid building work or digging, use the following rules to reduce any harm that may result.
2008 Annual Flying Stars:
The analysis of the annual flying stars can only be conducted from a general point of view offering indications as to the influences of the stars in the respective palaces for the year.
How each sector 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 Michael he will be able to advise you better for 2008 or if you have a copy of our Feng Shui software it will show you where all your wealth areas are etc.
Kan 1 White In 2008, Kan trigram is in the centre
Kan #1 is a water element. 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 centre location for 2008 and the centre is considered an earth energy and from a five element aspect it is predicted to cause conflict and whilst I believe there may be conflict in the year I do not think it will be that bad especially if you follow the advice here.
If you activate certain areas of the home it can bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and scholarly pursuits. The intensity of these attributes will differ in varying degrees according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars.
It is awkward when an auspicious star flies into the centre of a building as it is usually an area that is open and hard to place enhancers, if the centre of your home is the middle of your dining room or lounge, bedroom or other important room this is good news as the positive energy can permeate the rest of the home once you place some enhancers.
If this is a child's bedroom or study area you should place a gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue and a set of three Chinese i-ching coins tied with red ribbon as this protects wealth and also creates wealth in 2008, this is a very important cure and enhancer in 2008. A critical cure and enhancer although not placed fully in the centre is what is known as a Four Pillars Taiyang which is four pieces of crystal and a single i-ching coin placed in the centre, this cure and enhancer is so important in 2008 and without placement can cause many problems, you can get the crystals from most good crystal shops if you do not wish to buy it here but they must be the crystals as listed above as they all work collectively with each other and the inter-cardinal compass sectors SW-SE-NE-NW. This is supplied standard in our cures and enhancers kit.
Blue would be a good colour scheme for the room in the centre. Blue can also be used in beddings, throw-overs, lampshades, pillow covers etc. Although unlikely, but if a bed is located in this area, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside the bed.
Business's that rely on sales or related to industries selling properties, stock or similar should be cautious this year and make sure you place cures in the south and northwest part of your building especially so if they have a main door here.
Summary for year 2008:
The best months are April, June, September and November.
Take extra care in the months of May, July, August and December and check back here to further analyse these months.
Kun 2 Black In 2008, the Kun 2 Black (Ju Men) visits the northwest
The northwest in 2008 is not a very nice area at all and best left alone if possible, easy for me to say that, I know and this is the reason why we write these cures and enhancers 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 northwest of your home or office is a bathroom, utility room, guest bedroom or other less important room do not panic this is great news for you, and for my home this is a spare bedroom and downstairs a part of our main reception room so I am not too happy although not all concerned as I know once I have placed my cures and enhancers it should not cause us any problems. I will still place the recommended cures below and I will not be decorating or disturbing this area for the whole of 2008.
If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the northwest this will inevitably activate its malicious effects, so read on…
This star affects 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 harmony and distress. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4. Check on this page if you do not know your Gua number eightmansions.htm or if you have our software you can calculate your Gua and best directions.
The 2 Black in Period 8 is an untimely star and hence its influence will be of a negative nature.
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.
A three legged Toad in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the year and a little know cure is having the Toad with a i-ching coin placed underneath, these come standard in our 2008 cures kit. Make sure there are no red items, bright lights or burning candles in the northwest either up or downstairs. 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. If you have a main door that falls in northwest in 2008 you would also be advised to hang a Ba Gua mirror outside to deflect the negative energy.
Ladies expecting their first born should try and avoid using this bedroom. If there is no choice, try to use a good (east, northeast or southeast) sector of the room and implement the necessary cures. You should also sleep with your crown of your head in your personal Tien Yi direction.
If you cannot avoid using this room or this corner of the room, place a brass Wu-Lou beside your bed. The brass Wu-Lou (also known as a calabash) gives elemental support to the northwest (metal) and also symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star. Because the northwest is associated with the patriarch of the home the eldest male member of the home or business can be affected so make sure if he sleeps, works or spends a lot of time here all cures area placed.
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 2008.
Avoidance of this area is the best cure although I know this is hard so try and follow the advice and try and keep it as quiet as possible.
Now having given you all this bad news, I will now give some hope for those who are Gua 9 or 2 as this combination whilst on the whole is very bad it can be good for them in wealth and career, you will still need to place the recommended cures as detailed here but the effects of the #2 black will not be bad for you and can even give you positive results.
Summary for year 2008:
Do not activate this area with loud noises, keep quiet and avoid at all costs building work or refurbishment. Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place a Wu Lou, salt water cure, gold Toad, wealth ingot and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the northwest of your home quiet, and avoid redecoration and building work in 2008.
Better months are March, May, July, October and December.
Take extra care in the months of February, April, June, August, September, October, and November.
Chen 3 Jade In 2008, the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the west palace.
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 its effects use red decorative objects, candles lamps and lights. A nice simple cure 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.
Do not have a water feature inside here unless a professional Practitioner has advised you.
Some books or websites 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. It will become more usable towards the mid to later part of the 20-year period 8 cycle.
I have seen websites and books recommending placing water here for the annual #3 star, do this and you could invite arguments, divorce and legal problems without taking into account your land formations, period, mountain and water stars, please be careful. I am not saying these people are wrong to recommend placing water; I am saying that you should take into account the bigger picture before using such a powerful enhancer on a known unbalanced star at this particular time in the twenty year cycle. I have used water many times on this star with good results but have also used water and got less desired results, it really depends on other occupying stars, land formations and also the gua of the occupants.
Ensure that documents signed during the year are checked through thoroughly before committing oneself. The influence of a Chen 3 in Period 8 denotes possible arguments, disagreement and in extreme cases, this can result in lawsuits, either as a petitioner or a defendant. Either case there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during 2008 especially if you have a main door in the west and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. You should also a hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2008.
An imperative cure and slight enhancer to place in 2008 is a 12 coin ball, because we have the #3 wood star fall into a metal star, these two elements attack each and the reason why so many problems can occur, the cure is to place the coin ball in the west which the coin ball made of metal appeases the inherent element of the west and the strong red tassels burn of the negative qualities of the #3 wood star bringing harmony and balance and acutely some positive energy can come from this. This cure is vital if you have a bedroom in the west or other important room like office, lounge etc.
A traditional Chinese cure for the #3 is placing a Kwan Yin (Goddess of mercy) red in colour combined with a small piece of Jasper Red quartz crystal, this crystal is so powerful and enhances relations but more importantly protects against physical and physic attack which is what the #3 is well know for.
Do not take this affliction lightly. Do not disturb the ground of this area at all costs.
West facing properties with front doors to the west must be careful not to allow the doors to slam and do not renovate or dig in the west, south and north for 2008.
To calm interactions:
Sun 4 Green In 2008, Sun 4 Green sits in the northeast of the Lo Shu square.
The Sun wood 4 occupies the northeast palace for 2008 and this is a conditional star but is auspicious in Period 8 (2004 - 2024). It governs romance, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. If you want to enhance this wonderful star use a very special yin water feature or colours 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.
Normally a yin water feature is fresh still water although this year 2008 you must use a master cure which is an extremely powerful cure and enhancer in 2008 and one that can only be used in certain years is by placing 4 pieces of hematite quartz crystal in the northeast. The nice part of this annual cure is that the hematite crystal will also enhance the #4 romance and literacy/career star and because they have to be placed in a small saucer of yin water combined with an i-ching coin placed yang side up, this helps bridge the gap in the elements between earth which is inherent in the NE and wood (the two elements are in conflict) which is the element of the visiting #4 wood, those of you who are Masters of Feng Shui will know this cure. This really is a lovely cure and enhancer at the same time. This crystal's should be cleansed of negative energy and empowered with positive Sheng Ch'i energy in moonlight or sun, which is said to bring wealth, health and good luck. Hematite when placed in the NE is the crystal that possesses the strongest symbol of life and love and enhances romance, career and creativity.
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 northeast with the cures (hematite) can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel.
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.
As in every star, the 4 Green has a positive and negative aspect to its nature. Although a favourable annual star in 2008, it can also be affected by the presence of an unfavourable monthly star and when it does, it denotes betrayal, heartbreaks, scandals and humiliation in affairs of the heart. The affected months are June, August, October and November. So keep an eye on our monthly updates. Treat this area as your relationship and creativity area for 2008 it can be very good for you. If the northeast is an important area like a main door, lounge bedroom etc please keep it is clean and clutter free as possible, believe me it makes so much difference.
Summary for year: With the above cures and enhancers in place you should make good use of this area especially if you are looking to enhance relationships or creativity, this area is very good for writers, artists, students and anyone that is related to the travel industry.
Avoid fire element and colours red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue or black. 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. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here especially wind chimes from the 2008 cures. Spend time in the northeast if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
Cures and enhancers summary:
The 5 Yellow In 2008, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy is located in the south palace.
For those who know me will know I am so different the way I deliver the annual advice compared to other Feng Shui experts. I do not like to make bad news seem so bad and firmly believe the power of the mind is as powerful as Feng Shui and proving you give the correct software to the mind you can turn bad into good, sadly this year the south is not good at all and my advice is treat the south with extreme care in 2008, 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 south, it is my duty to let you know how bad it is this year.
Even with all this negative talk I have my main office in the south and I am not worried, so if you follow my advice and take the same attitude, you only need to concern yourself with my advice if you have an important room like an office, bedroom, lounge etc.
The advice I have given over the last nine years always comes from the heart and I try to make sure that those who do not use traditional Chinese cures like a salt water cure or six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon that there are alternatives always. Use plenty of good quality metal in the northeast this year and make sure you cleanse all your cures from previous years.
As I mentioned above I am paying particular attention this year to the south as this is where my office is located, am I worried about it? Absolutely not, I will though make sure that every cure and enhancer will be placed on February 4th 2008.
Do not to disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Houses with gardens to this corner of the property should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work.
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.
As we have so many negative affiliations in the south with the annual #5 yellow, three killings and sui po you must 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.
Another extremely imperative cure in 2008 and because the annual afflictions are so bad in the south, you must place a six Dragon Pagoda in the south of your home or office to avoid severe problems. This cure really is one of the most protective cures you can use and also a powerful enhancer, for protection against legal problems, arguments, disputes and loss of wealth in 2008 and the reason why we have included it standard in both our 2008 cures and enhancers kits. The combination of the six Dragons, Kwan Yin, Pagoda six bells, i-ching coin and talisman makes this the most effective cure and enhancer in 2008 to protect yourself against overall bad luck, money loss, legal problems and business competitors.
You MUST NEVER disturb the south inside or out 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 south sector of your house. You should also place a Ba Gua mirror especially if you have a main door here, I will be renewing mine on February 4th without fail.
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 is located here, 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 south.
It helps if you can do a natal chart of all the other flying stars in your home as there is much more you can do to protect yourself, if you know how to do a flying star chart it is worth doing or maybe consider buying our specialist Feng Shui software, it is worth every penny and can save you from many disasters, you will not find any better than this software as it not just tells you where the problems are it tells you how to correct them or enhance the good areas.
Summary: Do not activate this area with loud noises, keep quiet and avoid at all costs building work or refurbishment. Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed. Place six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, 6 Dragon Pagoda, salt water cure and six coins here along with metal ornaments. Use colours white, silver, gold or copper. I will repeat this part, as it is so important, please keep the south of your home or office quiet, avoid redecoration and building work in 2008 in the south part of your home or office and when you hang your wind chime try not to make so much noise with hammers etc, don't worry about the noise the wind chime makes, this is all part of the cure, so when it is in place try and remember to knock it a few times a day.
Summary for year 2008:
Take extra care in the months of February, March, May, July, September, November and December. Last year I had all this negative energy at my main door and if took on board half of the damming advice on other websites I would have been doomed, 2007 was again a record breaking year for us and 2008 will be the same, be positive and read this information a few times over so you are prepared for 2008.
To calm interactions:
Ch'ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien 6 White (Wu Qu) sits in the north palace in 2008.
6 White is a benevolent money star and as an annual star, its position in the north in 2008 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 north will benefit greatly.
This year this #6 star will bring more success for anyone with an office or main door in the north.
Those who have main doors or offices in the north sector will enjoy excellent business and career success. 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 north place some blue cloth like a rug or duvet cover to dissipate its energy.
A lovely enhancer and protector in the north in 2008 especially if you have a main door, bedroom, office or other important room is to place a wealth and romance enhancer and protector which has dual Dragons, i-ching coin and double carps. The double Carp's represent wealth and relationships protection and catalyst to enhance further. The two powerful Dragons encased around an i-ching coin giving ultimate protection and enhancement of wealth making this the perfect enhancer and also protector of wealth, business and relationships in 2008. This is such a nice traditional cure and enhancer.
Please remember that Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) resides between 352.5º - 7.5º north in 2008. It is vital that you must never sit facing this 15º sector. If you confront him, you will experience defeat, demotion, loss and obstacles. Instead, sit with your back to this sector and he will support you.
Do not undertake any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in this part of your house or office between February 4th 2008 and February 3rd 2009. Nor should you disturb the ground by digging holes, building foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. Once disturbed, this affliction will bring about three types of misfortunes - financial loss, sickness and arguments. This is the worst out of all the annual afflictions and in our home and business we take this very seriously as in our 28 years experience with Feng Shui we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed.
A traditional cure and enhancer is to place a statue of a Turtle in the north 2008 especially if your property faces north. This particular Turtle is sat on a bed of wealth ingots so he also enhances wealth as well as protecting health which is nice. The turtle is the ruler of the north, symbolizing endurance, strength, and longevity and the reason why we have included this standard in our 2008 normal kit.
Strict advice for 2008 is that if your property faces north you must not renovate the building in 2008 especially in the south and north.
Summary for year 2008:
Take extra care in the months of March, April, October and December.
This is a nice area and even better if your main door or office is located here, keep area active with windows and doors open. Good colours are earth colours yellow. Place some real quartz crystal here or the hanging faceted sphere type; these are very good for activating the wealth and business side of this nice star.
Enhancers and cures if needed:
Tui 7 Red The Lofty Wind of Tui (Po Jun) flies into the southwest in 2008.
The 7 red star is a negative influence in 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. This year 2008 it falls into the earth element of the southwest which is actually quite nice and we can turn bad into good here with the following advice.
Whilst some good will come from this star the #7 Red still portends a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing especially in the months of February, April and May.
If you have a door in the southwest or even a window you should be looking to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics, the next most important cure is placing a Liang Yi Quan Enhancer this is a very old and traditional cure used when the 7 star falls into the southwest, do not use this cure in any other year.
Liang Yi Quan is a such a commanding cure, Eight I-ching coins tied into a circle with three further yang sided coins with wealth ingots on top. This is a very traditional cure and enhancer for the #7 star and with the unique way the coins have been arranged and made it gives balance to the yin and yang when the #7 star visits the southwest as the metal and earth of these two elements balance each other and this cure is protecting against theft, fraud, gossip, lies, legal problems and wealth loss. These coins represent wealth protection, fortune, wealth and success and whilst the #7 star is seen as bad this cure can reverse it and create wealth in 2008. They can also be used as Wealth enhancers and be placed inside your accounts book.
You should also a hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2008 but only do so if you have a main door in the southwest.
As I have said above please take extra security measures especially if you have a front, back or side door in the southwest sector. Make sure doors and windows are fastened securely before leaving the house. Do not display valuable items on windowsills, which may attract the interests of passers-by.
It pays to be wise to avoid taking too many risks for there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses.
The best advice I can give is check or install smoke alarms, check electrics and check the security of windows and doors in the southwest.
Summary: Keep area quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and quartz crystals.
Summary for year:
If you have an office or door in the southwest be careful of people trying to deceive you, robbery, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust.
Ken 8 White This is the governing flying star for the next sixteen years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying stars system and is located in the east for 2008, so if you have a door, office or any other important room in the east this is great news for you. It is somewhat spoilt though as the #8 star is associated with earth element and sadly the east is a wood element which places the two elements in conflict but we will advice you on how to improve this.
Wealth, fame. Romance, prestige and distinction can be expected especially if you have an office here or a main door, even if you do not we can still activate it. It brings good fortune and exciting times even with the conflict of elements.
If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are good for this east palace this year. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz double hearts or a pair of Mandarin Ducks this year.
Whilst wealth is forecasted in 2008 for the east, 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 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 east.
One of the most powerful and important cures in 2008 and whilst not directly related to the west and only to be used in certain years is called a four pillars Taiyang enhancer and whilst powerful in 2008 the only time it can be used again is in 2020. This cure is only known to a few Masters and clients are normally charged a lot of money to receive the formula as it changes each year and whilst it is not placed in the west it harmonises all the elements that are out of sync in 2008.
Each crystal is used to work in synergy with the inherent element of the compass sector giving protection, wealth, health & mind. They have to be placed in the inter-cardinal directions SW, SE, NE & NW with an auspicious dynasty Chinese I-ching coin placed in the centre of the building making this a very powerful and commanding cure and enhancer for wealth, relationships and protection, thius cure is also need for protection in the south so the reason why this is standard with all our cures and enhancers kits.
Another very important cure and enhancer and allow for the disparity of elements is a wooden wu lou and whilst the wu lou is not normally associated with wealth but because in 2008 the #8 wealth star visits the east which is a wood element and as the two elements are in conflict you need to enhance and protect wealth. The combination of the wooden wu lou with the strong red ribbon combined with a small piece of red Tigers Eye quartz crystal sat on an ang pow provides the perfect cure and wealth enhancer for 2008.
Do not place heavy metal in the west this year, as it will weaken the good earth. Great news if you have your main door here and if you are in an office try and locate your desk in east or north part of the office.
This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area for 2008 so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc in the west. If you use symbolic cures this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.
A traditional cure and I will be placing in the east in my business is a Ch'ing-lung -Azure Dragon, we had this magnificent Dragon commissioned for us to exact measurements and stature and this is one of the finest I have ever seen and made from resin and looks like Cochin ceramic, each hand painted to a very high quality, standing on a wooden plinth. This must be placed in the east in 2008 or placed by your main door or a window looking into the home or office. This extremely powerful cure and enhancer is for the wealth #8 star and because the #8 star is visiting the east which is inherent in wood this can cause conflict and why the Dragon must face into the home so to stop money from leaving, it can only be used in 2008 and because this is no ordinary coiled Dragon and associated with the east.
Summary for year.
Take extra care with health in the months of March, May and June.
Li 9 Purple You Bi Li 9 Purple is found in the southeast in 2008 and this heralds celebrations so make hay while the sun shines if you have a main door in the southeast and because the two elements are harmonise this really is a lovely combination so if you have an important room in the southeast this is great news and no cures or enhancers are really needed.
9 Purple is the star of future wealth and has an auspicious influence in Period 8. Career opportunities and promotions are probable especially if you have an office or main door in the southeast in 2008. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.
This is a good area in general especially for those in studies. If this is a family area (living, dining or a library), encourage children to study here.
Couples with bedroom in this location will also enjoy good relationships. There may also be a chance of producing intelligent children. If you want to enhance this further place a statue of Kwan Yin in the southeast part of your bedroom.
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.
Although deemed as an auspicious star, the element of the annual #9 star can strengthen the malevolent effects of visiting monthly stars #2 and #5. Hang a a set of six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon here to weaken the undesirable influences of the monthly stars #2 and #5 which will visit in April and July.
The six Chinese coins tied together with ribbon will also ward off sha qi (external poison arrows) at the front door or windows. If there is incoming traffic or driveways pointed directly at your front door or window, apart from hanging a Ba Gua mirror to counter this destructive flow of qi, you can also hang a coin sword with it facing the door or window.
Summary for year:
Be aware of the negative influences during the April and July.
You should read what some of our clients say about annual cures kits, not only do they offer you protection they enhance the beneficial areas, click on the banner below to read some of the thousands we received over the years.
Water placement in 2008:
As we entered period 8 (4th February 2004) the use of water outside is critical up until 2024, so a pond outside in the correct area can really work in your favour. You must not unless advised by professional Practitioner place water outside in the north-east up until 2024.
Outside water in 2008: Can be placed in the south-west or east, this is your primary and secondary wealth areas for the next sixteen years. In 2008 water outside in the east is very good as not only is it a secondary wealth area it also is a lovely annual star and if you know what your natal chart (flying star chart) is and you also have a good facing star this would make a very powerful combination for wealth. If you do not know what your natal chart is or do not know how to create one take a look at our software as it does all the work for you, follow this link.
Indoor water for 2008: You can use a moving water feature or aquarium in the east in 2008. Do not use water in any other compass sectors unless you have had a professional Feng Shui consultation or use our Feng Shui software.
If you are using water you must make sure the water is clean and flowing and never allow it to become stagnant. Water is a very powerful enhancer and is the essence of Feng Shui (Shui meaning water) the Ch'i is caught by the water and cleansed (providing the water is clean) and distributed throughout your property. If you look on our resource pages you will find more detailed information on water placement for 2008 and beyond.
Whilst the methods above are considered safe, there are many exceptions to the placement of water and as Master Practitioners and teachers we use many more methods of water placement for wealth, education and relationship, these methods whilst extremely powerful can only be used with expert guidance and a full analysis of your property and land formations, please visit this link for more details of an on-line consultation or home/business visit. Or consider our powerful Feng Shui software.
Salt water cure after 4 weeks.
Every year we receive thousands of e-mails saying how the salt water cure changed the energy in their home for the better; this is a very powerful and little known cure and one that we have been using for over twenty years. You should use the salt water cure this year February 4th 2008 in the south & northwest (DO NOT REUSE LAST YEARS SALT WATER CURES IF IT IS MORE THAN TWO MONTHS OLD).
There are many exceptions to be made, the thing to remember with flying stars is, if you have a 5 yellow in a dining room and if it is open plan home the 5 yellow's power can drift into any other part of the home, think of perfume, if you sprayed some in your bedroom your partner may still be able to smell it downstairs because the smell goes into the air (Ch'i) and drifts around the home, so as general advice it is better to cure than leave to chance.
How to dispose of your old salt water cure?
You should change your salt water cure every year or if it is over two months old, why? Because they store an enormous amount of negative energy and moving it causes problems in all parts of a building. The best way is to get a Tupperware type container (margarine tub etc) and place the entire contents salt, water, glass and coins into it, close and seal the lid and throw straight into an outside bin. If you do not have a container pour the water down an outside drain (one at the back of house that leads away from the building) and place the salt/glass and coins into a plastic bag and place in bin. Please do not try and recycle, it is not worth it, this is the main reason we sell ours so cheap to make sure people can easily and cheaply renew them. Last year I saw a few websites selling these for 4-5 times as much as us. As with all our products they are cleansed of all negative energy and empowered with positive energy and the coins also come from a good dynasty making them even more effective.
