People born in the Year of the Horse are independent and confident. Horse grows and flourishes better among lively companions, they are excellent, eloquent speakers, especially when it comes to inspiring speeches. Horses like to be recognized for their skills and easily flattered, but at the same time they are honest and genuinely warm toward everyone and thus attract many people. People often confine in horse due to their genuine interest in other’s thought and feelings. But due to excitement of the news Horses often unable to keep secrets. Same can be said about Horses in business. They tend to get easily excited by new ideas and act on them without delay, often without any preparation or planning ahead, and as a result may experience many losses and become disillusioned. But since Horse is generally very positive sign, they do not get upset for long, and begin a new every time, as soon as new project arises. Sometimes, this excitement serves them well by opening new opportunities, but at times it leaves their plans half-finished. This is why Horses need to learn how to deal with anxiety and excitement and routine matters in order to reach their highest potential.
In love they do not easily commit to one partner at first. Simply due to the nature of their mind, that is always searching for new excitement and getting easily bored with the “old”. But once Horse overcomes this initial hesitancy of routine, they take commitments rather seriously. Horses are very neat and clean, they spend a lot of time caring for their appearance and usual “morning grooming ritual” may take them twice as long as any other sign. Bus as an irony, Horse is absolutely disorganized and chaotic when it comes to any other domestic affairs. They need a partner who would not object to their personal freedom and desire for adventure. In overall Horses are very kind, loving and spirited partners. At work, Horses are hard-working, cheerful and highly independent. They can work as part of team, but better suited to work alone. With this said, best professions would be once with independent structure, such as: science projects, entrepreneurship, politics, acting and creative arts. Horses can be great leaders as long as they hold back their temper and their moth when situations irritate them. Otherwise, harsh words can get them into legal trouble.
The Horse is the seventh sign of the Chinese Zodiac. Traditionally, year of the Horse associated with Fire element, Color Red (good fortune) and South direction( midday hours) as well as YANG energy in general ( hot, heavy and dynamic, mid-summer). Also Horse is one of the signs that embodies both Yin and Yang qualities and also associated with the element Wood. Wood has powerful Yang qualities that are also associated with relaxation and intuition. Generally, Fire works in harmony with the element of Earth, but is overwhelmed by the element of Water.
2014 is the year of Wood Horse, that begins on January 31st, (February 4th according to Chinese calendar) 2014 and ends on February 18th, 2015. It is 31st year within 60 year cycle, it is also called “Horse in the Cloud” or “Chia Wu” in traditional Chinese astrology.
Wood Horse in a Wood Horse year is in its own element. This Horse is quick to react in defense of those who can not fight for themselves. It can, however, bring unexpected conflicts, as Fire – Wood energies are very strong. 2014 is not a very peaceful year, because Earth Element, grounding base, is completely missing in a chart of this year.
Ho Tu the “Hidden Luck” possibilities
The good news is that this year also has a hidden Ho Tu combinations, which can manifest as great luck or even windfall. According to Feng Shui theory, Ho Tu numbers are the four pairs of the numbers placed in certain manner in flying chart. They are representations of the YIN and YANG energies combinations of the five elements and only fall into this specific pattern once in a while. They can be either positive or extremely negative.
The Ho Tu numbers must fall into primary cardinal directions in order to create this pattern. These combinations are: 1-6 falling in the North ( represent element Water); 2-7 falling into South (represent element Earth); 3-8 falling in the East ( represent element Wood) and 4-9 falling in the West (represent Fire element). By this theory, if sector, containing Ho Tu combination is properly activated, it will bring tremendous luck associated with this particular sector and the element, especially to the person born under sign corresponding to that element. It is very important to make sure combination is indeed positive.
For example, in 2014 all four Ho Tu numbers combinations appears in annual flying chart. All of them happen to be positive. They are located in South, North, West and North-East. This means that birth signs, associated with each sector have a great chance to improve their luck in the area associated with this sector. North for example is the Rat’s home sector, and it is associated with commercial or business luck. This is means in 2014, those born in the sign of the Rat can expect either great improvement or great luck associated with their commercial or business work.
Of cause, always remember that individual personal Karma of each of us plays a great role in everything we experience and hence can halter even the greatest of the Feng Shui “lucky strikes”, if person simply does not have enough merit to receive it. But never the less, Ho Tu combination, if activated may bring amazing luck.
But in overall, this Ho Tu combination brings exceptional luck or situations to people born under signs of Rat, Ox, Tiger, Horse and Rooster. North – brings a chance of commercial or business gain; South – great success in politics; North-East – possible financial windfall and West – great academic success or discovery. Exceptionally successful months in 2014 are February and November.

As mentioned in the grid, the five elements can be regarded as the symbols of the five planets, Metal, Wood, Water, Fire Earth corresponding to Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Saturn.
2014 is Male Wood Horse Year. The Male Wood is connected to a tall tree. A tree needs sunshine, Earth and Water to grow stronger and taller. Horse contains Fire and Earth. Horse of 2014 contains mainly Fire. Metal is afraid of Fire. Metal and Wood of 2014 are opposite elements; they have fighting relationship. Luckily, Horse contains Female Earth, which has attraction relationship with Wood of 2014 into Earth. Earth is the mother element of Metal. But the fortune of 2014 has almost no Metal. People need to pay attention to their respiratory system, because Metal is connected to lungs.
Water is not afraid of Fire. Fortunately, the Earth of Horse can protect Fire from attacking by Water. Also, Wood of 2014 makes Fire stronger. That means Water cannot win over the Fire in 2014. This creates elemental imbalance and means that in 2014, we might have to pay special attention to the kidneys and the urinary system, as they correspond to the Water element.
Fire is the child element of Wood. Mother Wood always helps child Fire to burn stronger. Wood does the giving without taking. But, eventually, Wood will burn into dust. That means, that year 2014 will bring some great opportunities at first, but then these opportunities will disappear. This also means that when we get any help or advice from others in 2014, we need to learn from them as much as possible. But then to be prepare to do the job alone, when help is no longer available. In general, Wood-Fire in 2014 brings luck, but we still need to pay attention to heart/cardiovascular system during this strong Fire Year, as it’s energies can become overwhelming. Emotions may run hot as well. Great cure for everyone would be to use Citrine and Agate crystals to compensate for missing Earth element and create grounding base.
“The Annual Flying Stars Forecast” of Feng Shui is very important. It calculates every particular combination of energies for the year, and helps us take precautions against destructive influences. It also helps us strengthen the effect of the good stars. Knowing annual Flying Star, you can know what areas of your life will be positive during year, and what areas, on contrary, may be dangerous. This is very important, because, if, for example, your bed or table located in the wrong sector of your home, they should be temporarily rearranged, if possible. Using certain Feng Shui techniques, bad stars can be neutralized, and good stars can be increases.
Tai Sui or Grand Duke of Jupiter, Sui Po or The Year Breaker and The Three Killings and 5 Yellow
Tai Sui or Grand Duke of Jupiter -”General of Time Gods”(Yin Jiao).
Tai Sui or Tai Shui, is a very important aspect of Chinese Astrology. It is mostly known as the Grand Duke of Jupiter. It is an intangible energy body of War-like nature, that should not be disturbed. The Tai Sui or sometimes called Year Authority, is a commanding post that has total control over that particular year. The Chinese Lunar Year Cycle has 60 years and so there are 60 Tai Sui, with every year having a different Tai Sui. In Taoism Tai Sui also called “General of Time Gods”(Yin Jiao). Tai Sui sometime refers to the rotation of Jupiter. According to Taoism there are 60 Gods that have duty of observing and managing hour, day, month and year. These 60 Gods are also deities that governs every heavenly body in the sky. Tai Sui is rotated within the 60 Jia Zi (Jupiter) yearly and whose responsibility is to command the earth. He is the most powerful Year Duty God of the Earthly deities. Tai Sui wields control over all other deities except the Jade Emperor, thus portraying great authority and power. He is a deity that no one dares to offend. Many people do not understand the implications that are entailed when a horoscope is deemed to be in conflict with Tai Sui. Fear and confusion are usually generated. The position of Tai Sui corresponds to the year Earth branch (the animal sign of the year) of any given year. In the compass it occupies 15 degrees. The position of Tai Sui changes in the first day of the first month of the Chinese solar calendar, generally this day falls on 4th of February in the Gregorian Calendar, with minor exceptions, similar to the year 2012.
These are the exact degrees of Tai Sui in the next year:
January 21st, 2014 – February 18th, 2015 – S2 – 172.5 – 187.5 degrees
Tai Sui landing in the South 2 sector.
Five Yellow 5 star in 2014 located at the North West (322.6 – 337.5).
5 Yellow is also one of the most deadly afflictions of the year. It is considered the annual misfortune star. And being in the Center of the house at this point it becomes almost unavoidable and cures will be essential for everyone. I will list all necessities under Center section.
Sui Po or Tsui Po, generally, doesn’t create any problems until it is disturbed. By disturbance, ones again, Feng Shui means renovations, repairs, construction, digging in the area. It is not considered to be bad, if your house faces the Sui Po direction, but you need to exert caution if your house is sitting on Sui Po. (In Feng Shui sitting direction is direction of the backyard or the back wall opposite to the front door,or back of the building.) This rule is the same, as the Feng Shui Tai Sui rule: a house that sits on Tai Sui-faces Sui Po and vise versa. And because it is considered bad to face Tai Sui, it is bad sitting on Sui Po. So, it is best to remember, NOT TO disturb this area for the particular year.
In 2014 Sui Po occupies North 2 (352.5 – 7.5 degrees). You should consider this area to be the second Tai Sui – no noise, no floor or wall disturbances, no renovations or any loud or bouncing activities recommended. All detailed cures for this sector are listed under North.
Finally last major affliction – The 3 Killings. In 2014 sector of 3 Killings also moved to the North. When disturbed, 3 Killings tend to bring sickness and health issues, as well as multiple confrontations. Same as with the previous two afflictions – Do not disturb this sector. But unlike the Tai Sui, Do not sit with the 3 killings behind you. Instead, you should actually face the 3 killings. As a cure Place 3 Chi Lin in this sector. Detailed cures and explanations under North below.

Annual Flying stars for 2014
SOUTH WEST, Number 1 White
Star Number 1 is a lucky star. It represents element Water and future prosperity, authority, triumph and success. Associated with career, human relationship, knowledge and wisdom. South West home star is 2, Earth. This combination could lead to marriage problems and a danger of loss of child. People residing in South West house or room in 2014 should be also beware of car accidents. In order to exhaust negative effect of home star of the sector use plants and any Wood element features. Wood will exhaust the Water Number 1 and strengthen Earth element.
Number 1 is also corresponds to human ear, kidney and blood flow. Which means when this star is afflicted we can be more receptive to conditions and disorders, related to these organs. In general this star affects overall career and luck. Generally this star is responsible for our reputation, name, social status and fame(or lack of such). It can also cause problems with the lungs and the head, as well as depression and unsettled emotional states. So people sleeping in this sector need to place preventive cures here as protection from health issues related to Water element imbalance.
Use green leafy plants in this sector, except if this is your bedroom. Plants is a bedroom are really prohibited. Use colors of Wood, green, brown tones. Use natural or ceramic Wu Lo if this is your bedroom. DO NOT use METAL or FIRE in this sector. Use rectangular shapes when choosing decorating pieces and interior. Place healthy green leafy plants outside if this is your front door. In overall, this is good sector in 2014.
Since Earth element if completely missing from the chart in 2014, this could be a good sector for placing 5 element’s pagoda. It is also perfect for suppressing the original sector’s home Number 2 star, which brings illnesses and ailments to occupants. Placing the 5 Elements Pagoda will exhausts effect of negative stars. So South West is great place for 5 Elements Pagoda.
Summary for SOUTH WEST:
Wood, wood and more wood
Use Wood element colors and objects in decorating
Healthy Green Leafy Plants (not pine trees or shrubs with sharp thorns)
Natural or ceramic Wu Lou
5 Element Pagoda
EAST, Number 2 Black
Number Black 2 represent element Earth, while East represents Wood. This star associated with the mother, the eldest female and devotion. This combination is dangerous for those involved in politics, it can lead to lawsuits, even jail or divorce. This star brings gossip, slander and overall bad luck for women. This is known as combination 3-2. In 2014 this combination will bring problems with authorities, legal troubles, most likely associated with a woman. Be ware of female acquaintances with hidden agenda if you house facing or sitting on West/East axis.
DO NOT use moving objects in this sector such as clocks, wind chimes, TV, audio speakers or highly vibrating appliances in this sector. If you can, move them to “safe sector” of the annual chart. If you can not move them – use them less. In general, Number 2 is considered to be an illness star. So this is definitely area where you want to avoid sleeping and spending too much during this year. If activated this sector could lead to multiple health and relationship issues and problems.
This is definitely the sector need to be avoided by anyone who is pregnant or trying to conceive. If you can change the bedroom or main room located in this area do it. If change is not possible-try to cure the effect and spend less time in this area. This is especially dangerous sector for people born in the year of the Sheep and Monkey, as well as mothers or grandmother’s of the family. This sickness star could lead to decease in the areas of the abdomen, reproductive system, stomach and digestive organs.
In 2014, in this 3-2 combination, Number 2 brings excessive mental tension, distress and worries, while the Number 3 bring in disputes and variety of legal problems. When these numbers come together, they also reflect the destructive result of Wood destroying Earth.
If your front door or businesses office door located in this sector, you may have to face very severe problems. Homes facing East, in 2014 will experience increasing number of fights between all residents, as well as with people from outside the family. Couples with the front door in East in 2014 will have a hard time, going through arguments and have problem staying together. This may lead to divorces and separations.
The best way to counteract this influence serious problem is to avoid using this entry, move out East room. If it is not possible – use Yin Fire and Yin Metal. This will exhaust the Number 3 and decrease effect of Number 2. This means using Red and Gold colored decorations, such as gold and red curtains, blankets, shades, pillows, art pieces etc.
To counteract this star’s ill effect use Fire element, as well as color Gold. Use 6 Solid crystal Red balls in this sector. Use color Red and Gold as much as possible, particularly in all decorations such as lamp shades, bed covers, rugs, table cloth, curtains etc.
Summary for EAST:
Use shaped of Fire Element, but not an actual Fire (NO CANDLES)
DO NOT use WATER, WOOD or EARTH
You can use Gold colored Wu Lou with red string around it in bedroom or even living room
Gold colored frames for pictures
DO NOT USE any moving objects, NO CLOCKS, NO CHIMES
SOUTH EAST, Number 3 Green
South East – is a home of Wood element. Number 3 star is also Wood. This is a star of the “Annual Conflict” and represents the eldest son. It is also associated with movement and decision-making process. In 2014 South East is influenced by the stars of “Golden God”, so the placement of altars and icons or any objects you may consider sacred for yourself in this sector – is extremely favorable.
In 2014 this is also location of possible heartache to the residents, caused by sexual scandals or infidelity. To remedy this influence use the bright lights in South East. This sector can be improved with element Fire. It is great location for bright lights, especially red. Another cure to use for South East is an image or figure of a woman. It can be painting or photograph. Better if frame is not metal or white.
Green 3 brings in loud arguments, disputes, legal issues, bad tempers, and sometimes, loss of wealth and divorce. Since it is also the location of the eldest son in the flying chart, if your son residing in South East sector, he will feel more aggravated or generally angry in 2014. Health issues related to the liver, gall bladder, feet and arms may also arise. This is bad area for couples trying to conceive, as it also affects productivity organs.
Relationships between spouses may become very tense, and may even lead to divorce if not cures properly. This star can also lead to variety of the court issues. The best cure for this sector is the Water element and everything related to it. If this is your bedroom place natural or ceramic Wu Lou next to the bed. It is not the best sector for couples in overall, but if you can not change bedroom make sure you place cures. You can place statue or image of two Chinese ducks on the still lake to increase or improve love in this sector.
Remove all metal items and cures from this sector, and replace them with a Fire element.
Summary for SOUTH EAST:
Fire, Fire and more Fire
Use ceramic or natural Wu Lou
Image or statue of Chinese Ducks or Couple of Ducks on the lake
Image or figure of a woman
Bright lights, red or orange best
THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS either picture or statues
NO METAL, NO WATER
CENTER Number 4 Green
This is star of Creativity, Romance and Scholastic success. Great area for single person’s bedroom, elder daughter in the family and people born in the year of the Dragon or the Snake. This star is often called “Romantic Peach Blossom Star”. This means that love and academics will be the most successful in this sector of the home. Single people looking for love should try to move their bedroom into this sector in 2013, and all students should study in Center sector. This is the Wood star and it increases by element Water.
This is location for your Mandarin Ducks and Pink crystals. Images of Dragon & Phoenix, couples and anything that speaks “Love” are welcomed in this sector. In 2014, this star in the center created combination 4-5, which is not very auspicious and can lead to sexually transmitted and skin diseases, breast cancer. In order to reduce this negative influence, use painting of water and mountain, as a cure.
Summary for CENTER:
Mandarin ducks and pink crystals
Dragons and Phoenix
Use image of water with mountains
NORTH WEST, Number 5, Annual affliction “5 Yellow”
“5 Yellow” is also known as Wu Wang a very harmful affliction. The use of Metal element is the best to exhausts Earth element of this star. It does not destroy Earth, rather suppresses it’s harmful effect. In 2014 Earth element is completely missing from annual chart so suppression is even better cure. When “5 Yellow” flies to the North West it is actually better, because it is under control due to Northwest being a Metal sector. Metal exhausts Earth and is able to keep the “5 Yellow” some what under control.
The biggest problem when North West is your front door, as it will be unintentionally activated by daily use. When disturbed the “5 Yellow” can bring losses, especially loss of wealth, car accidents, injuries, violent robbery, and sometimes, even death. If you unable to move or have no possibility of another entry, make sure you have 6 hollow rhode metal wind chime on the inside and outside the North West door.
Use Metal singing bowl if this is your living room or your bedroom. Of cause if this is bedroom and you are unable to relocate for the duration of this year, make sure you place Metal Wu Lou next to your bed. If this is unimportant room, storage, or garage – make sure it is very clean and very quiet. If North West is your bathroom, place metal objects on the toilet, such as Metal bowl with little metal beads in it. You can use silver string to tie around bathroom door handle.
If this is your Kitchen make sure you do not activate “5 Yellow” with too much noise, but do use all metal appliances and dishes of Metal colors. Actually, use Metal colors in all decoration: towels, upholstery, rugs, curtains, table cloth etc. Great cure for North West sector is Metal bell or Metal singing bowl.
Do NOT DIG, DO NOT REPAIR or in any other ways disturb the walls and ground in this sector for the duration of 2014. If you must do it – make sure to consult certified Feng Shui practitioner and use Metal cures. Try not to slam the door in this sector ( if you have one here) too often, ask the kids and visitors to be more gentle. DO NOT renovate or dig (plant the garden or simply disturb the soil outside) in this part of the property for entire year, if possible of cause. DO NOT USE any form of Water at the Wu Wang sector either.
Yang Water will activate Wu Wang by bringing out its evil energy causing more issues. Do not dig, drill, hammer, knock, jump, etc. Open or close the door softly and gently to reduce the bad vibration of the door, wall and floor. If you have kids – DO NOT let them play in the sector, both outside and inside.
In 2014, this could be a good sector for placing 5 Element’s pagoda. It is also perfect for suppressing “5 Yellow” effects. Placing the 5 Elements Pagoda in any afflicted sector not only exhausts effect of negative stars, but activates the lucky Numbers 1, Number 6 and Number 8. So in 2014, South, North West and South West are the perfect sectors for 5 Elements Pagoda.
You should also place a 6 Chinese coins tied with red ribbon in this area, as well as round metal singing bowl or any round metal object. I love to use Bells as well, so if you like non-traditional cures bell is one of the best.
Summary of NORTH WEST:
6 Hollow Metal Rhodes wind chimes
Bagua Mirror outside
Metal Wu Lou
Metal singing bowl and /or Bell
No Noise, No activities
Salt Water cure
5 Elements Pagoda
6 Chinese Coins with red string
WEST, Number 6 White
6 White star also called “The Heavenly” and associated with the Cosmic energies. It brings success in career and education, strength, activity, power, brightness, bright colors, energy, and perseverance. This is an excellent star, especially for someone involved in spiritual matters or development of spiritual qualities. Images of any religious objects you value or admire can definitely be placed here. Its nature is Yang and it is associated with the father or the patriarch, the head of the household. It corresponds to Metal.
Home location of the West is also Metal. So in 2014, this star is in its own element is very strong. In 2014, the combination of the home sector of West causes this star to become a “Negative chi” – “sword fighting killing breath” (6-7 combination). In order to counteract this effect use Yin Water element. In terms of health – it can bring potential complications related to kidneys and lower extremities. Use colors and shapes of Water element to balance this sector. West is also a good place for picture of the Horse and Dragon. Place image of statue of Dragon Headed Tortoise here as well.
Placing the 5 Elements Pagoda in West sector not only exhausts effect of negative star 7, but also activates the lucky Number 6. 5 Element’s pagoda would definitely be a great cure here. Yin Water means still water, such as Vase or glass containers with still water. Not the aquarium or fountain that is moving. This year Lillian Too mentioned Yin Water with 5 Elements stones as part of annual cures. This cure can definitely be used in West. This is also perfect location for Salt Water Cure.
In 2014, West is also location of another Ho Tu combination, 1- 6. Here it has potential to bring excellent education luck to everyone in household. Children born during this year in West facing home will be intelligent and talented. This combination has potential to bring literally and education fame to all residents if properly activated. In order to active this combination, use “6 Yin Waters” with 6 black stones inside each cup. Basically, use small glass containers or cups. Fill it with clean water and place black stone into each cup. Let them stay untouched in clean place all year. Add water as needed, but do not change it.
Summary for WEST:
Use Water element and colors ( blue and black) to minimize excess Metal energy
Use Dragon Headed Tortoise
5 Element’s Pagoda
Image or statue of Horses and/or Dragons
Yin Water and Salt Water cure (either one is ok to use or both)
NORTH EAST , Number 7 Star, Red
This year Number 7 flew into North East. Traditionally, combination 8-7 brings good wealth, harmony for the family and very smart children.
It is sector of the youngest child, particularly youngest daughter. But because 7 turned from period star into the bad star in 2004, it causes robbery, violence, and death. It can also signify loss of a family member, imprisonment, and accidents caused by fire and metal (firearms, guns, knives etc). It also causes residents of this sector to possibly experience sudden violent death, being a victim of murder, sudden deadly sickness, or even suicide. This influence will especially effect people born under sign of Tiger and Ox since this is their “home sector”.
The best way to suppress this deadly energy is to use metal wind chimes or other Metal cures in this sector. Place Blue Rhino and Blue elephant cure here as well. This could either be an image of both or the statue or both or each. I prefer natural stones as material for my statues, so it can be Rhino made of Lapis Lazuli or any other blue natural crystal. Or you can use glass or plastic statue, as long as they are blue. Place it in the sector facing outside. There are many great feng shui cure sites now that also provide all small versions of the most cures that can be carried around, such as key chains and amulets. This year having key chain with Rhino and Elephant is a good idea in general.
Use White, Black and silver colors here as well. Use bright lights inside and outside. Make sure you keep this sector meticulously clean, all through out the year, remove any stagnation and old items that gather negative yin energy. If you have a backyard, clear out and de-clutter this sector well as well. Place 6 hollow metal rhodes wind chime in North East corner. Make sure to remove all old bushes and dead shrubs, as it only increases “Killing” energy of Number 7.
Great cure for this star is Golden Pi Yao. Outside cures are Ba Gua mirror, that will also protects from any poison arrows. I place Ba Gua on the outside even if this is my window. So this year, North East is not your door, you can place the Ba Gua outside the window frame simply for extra protection.
I use the Black protective stones. I always use Black Tourmaline and Obsidian as protection in any afflicted area. But this is just my personal preference. I am not professionally licensed specialist and simply sharing this free personal knowledge that I have been lucky to acquire over the years. I do use variety of professional software, as well as multiple books for generating these reports, but I also use common sense and personal practical experience. Many Feng Shui practitioners simply do not use these stones as part of cures because they can be expensive to generate in big quantities. With this said I do use Black Tourmaline in North East, as well as South West sectors as part of the cures to convert negative energies into positive. This is my personal preference and experience, nothing more. But it works for me this is why I am inclined to share it.
To dispel any negative energies of 7 Red, you can make outside energy grid by using Black Tourmaline crystals. I do it by placing small geodes of Tourmaline on the outside edges of my home. If you live in apartment you can place it on the outside your window frame, patio or balcony. Black Tourmaline is a powerful stone for protection against negative energy of all kinds. It is also very strong spiritual grounding stone. This is one of the most popular crystals to be used for metaphysical purposes.
I believe this is one of the best protection stone that you can use against negativity. It is powerful for healing and for psychic protection. Black Tourmaline also helps when we feel generally negative, or when you meet other people who are giving off negative vibrations. It will also act to protect you against psychic attack, and electromagnetic waves. I am personally very sensitive to geomagnetic fields and use Tourmaline on every piece of electronics in the house. It has ability to purify the area where they are located. With all this said, North East being most physically violent area on the Flying stars chart great place for Protective crystals.
Black obsidian performs similar functions and can be used as a great alternative. I placed Obsidian and Tourmaline crystals in the North East room. I also have them in the bathroom in a small clear glass bowl. Even through this is not major area of my home, it still carries negative effects of the Red 7. No harm to protect household from accidents.
Great idea to place Salt Water Cure in this sector, as well as the Wu Lou, especially if this is your bedroom or any important room. If North East is your bathroom place a fresh plant on top of the toilet. You can also place metal round bowl nest to the plant. Just make sure it is not a singing bowl that contains mantras or images of any deities. Never place mantras or such images on toilet.
This year, Lillian Too’s report recommended to use “old” new Taoist cure called the “Yin Water”. It is glass cups or containers filled with still water with 5 colored crystals in each of them. 5 Colored crystals represent 5 colors of the Elements and strengthening Earth element in NE that is otherwise missing. Just fill the metal bowl with still water and place 5 colored solid crystals or colored stones inside. Colors MUST BE: Black (Water), Yellow (Earth), White (Metal), Green (Wood) and Red (Fire).
In 2014, North East is a very interesting sector indeed. This is also the location of one of Ho Tu (2-7) combinations for Ox, Rat, Horse, Rooster and Tiger. This specific combination, 2-7, is responsible for excellent financial luck. In order to activate this combination, without disturbing negative influence place metal wind chimes and solid crystal globes in North East. The best – is to place statue of Gold Ox and Golden Tiger or images of each made with gold color. In 2014, this is also good sector for Metal or Crystal Wish-fulfilling Tree. This specific Ho Tu combination brings a potential of windfall.
To conclude – it is best to keep this sector clutter free, clean and brightly lid all year round. Place string of Christmas lights, either white or blue color, on the outside the window frame if you have the window in North East.
If North East happened to be your front door – make sure it is well lid and protected. Place Blue Rhino and Elephant statues or picture facing it. You can use Bagua Mirror above the door to prevent violent energies from entering. Also use blue, black or metal colors for door mat and decorating elements. Use “ Blue Evil Eye” amulet on the door knob and in your car. Hang 6 hollow rhodes Metal wind chimes above the door. And always stay vigilant when you leave and when you come back, lock the door well. Watch our for possibly dangers.
If North East is your store-room, bathroom or back door – keep it meticulously clean and well lid. Keep the back door shut and well secured. Same applies to North East Backyard or garden.
Summary cures for NORTH EAST:
Blue Rhino and Blue elephant cure
Salt Water cure
Clear all clutter
Use bright lights (both indoor and outdoor)
“Yin Water” cure
Metal cures, singing bowls, wind chimes
Money symbols everywhere: Ships, Dragons, Ingot, Wealth Vase
Fresh plant - ONLY if this is bathroom
Statue of Gold Ox and Golden Tiger, either together or next to each other/ or their images
SOUTH, Number 8, Annual Affliction “Tai Sui”
In 2014, South is the most important sector. Combination of the annual stars 8-9 is excellent for money prospect, but can also bring misunderstandings between the young and older generation.
8-9 combination also means a happy family, with lots of celebration occasions. Number 8 star is the “Star of prosperity” in a current period 8. Generally, this star bring wealth. But in 2014 this is also sector of annual affliction of “Tai Sui”. This means it is NOT RECOMMENDED to be actively use, to do repairs or any digging or to do any ground breaking in this sector. To counteract “Tai Sui” place a statue or picture of Pair of Pi Yao in this sector, as well as in the North to counteract negative “Sui Po” effect. Place a picture or a statue of “Tai Sui” in the NORTH facing the South, not in the South itself.
This is also another location of Ho Tu combination (3-8). This combination signifies Wood. In the 8 period this combination is most auspicious. 3 and 8 combination can bring great success in politics or powerful position of authority. To further activate this star and combination in 2014, use the image or statue of “8 Immortals sitting on a mountain of gold”. Great cure is to put the picture of the 8 Mountain peaks in golden frame, 8 golden color metal wind chimes and image of 8 Auspicious signs. It is good to hang picture of the Wind Horse in this sector as well. This is great sector to place Yellow Citrine or other yellow precious stone jeweled tree.
Keep this sector well lid, with fresh, not withered plants outside. If this is your front door, beware of excessive door use, if possible enter from another side. If not possible, make sure Pi Yao is placed both facing the door as well as facing the North, next to the door.
Place the Wu Lou in the bedroom, if this is your bedroom. If this is your kitchen, make sure you have red color included in all decorating elements: plates, napkins, table cloth, etc. Same applies to living room. Use Fire element colors to decorate South, but keep it clean and possibly quiet.
Since Earth element if completely missing from the chart in 2014, this could be a good sector for placing 5 Element’s pagoda. It is also perfect for suppressing Tai Sui effects. Placing the 5 Elements Pagoda in any afflicted sector not only exhausts effect of negative stars, but activates the lucky Numbers 1, Number 6 and Number 8. So in 2014, South, North West, West and South West are the perfect sectors for 5 Elements Pagoda.
Summary for SOUTH:
2 x Pairs of Pi Yao ( 4 Pi Yao’s total): One pair placed in South facing North, another in North-Facing South
Wind Horse image or statue
Wu Lou in bedroom
Picture or figures of “8 Auspicious signs”
Picture of Mountain peaks, preferably 8
Wind Horse image or statue
Yellow stones Jeweled tree
No DIGGING, REPAIRS, NO DISTURBANCES
Place 5 Elements Pagoda
Color to use – Red
NORTH, Flying star 9 Purple, “Three Killings” & “Sui Po”
As we previously said with “Three killings” there are rules to be followed, but the most import one – you must never sit with your back toward this sector. This is the “Future Luck” star. It corresponds to element Fire, color red, purple and its tones. It brings wealth, good fortune, fame and recognition luck. This is also the Sheng Chi Star, and represents future prosperity. It is often related to any joyful occasions, such as wedding, promotion, winning, etc.
In 2014, 9 positioned itself in the North. North represents a Water element. It also corresponds to human ear, kidney and blood flow. Water destroys Fire and in 2014 North is also the Sui Po sector. Which means when this sector is afflicted we can be more receptive to conditions and disorders, related to these organs. People sleeping or residing in the North sector need to place necessary cures here to prevent health issues related to Water element imbalance.
Since North traditionally corresponds to Number 1, Flying star 9 in this sector creates 1-9 combination, which, for the obvious reason, is called the “sum of ten”. This combination can brings some financial difficulties, but very good for promotion and academic success. “Sum of ten” represents the Yin and Yang balance, but can also lead to family arguments between spouses or siblings. This arguments are often temporary, and usually easily resolved. To improve overall harmony of this sector and the house in 2014, use the crystals, globe shapes in particular. Place it in the Center of the house or living room.
In 2014, North is also location of the “Ho-Tu” combination. This rare combination is based on movement of the Flying stars around Center with star 5 in counterclockwise manner. When they land in certain pattern they create “Ho Tu”. Each of “Ho Tu” combinations corresponds to the specific element, which when activated can generate powerful results for the specific area. In 2014, North “Ho Tu”brings commercial and business success. If your house is facing or sitting in North, you are also exceptionally lucky in 2014, because it is also location of the Ho Tu axis. South sector also contains Ho Tu combination and can bring great success in politics and fame. So in 2014 anyone who’s property is either sitting or facing North/South will have an exceptional opportunities in business and great possibility of fame.
In the North this combination “4-9” and corresponds to element Metal. To further activate this Ho Tu combination in the North, place images and objects signifying wealth, as well as image of the Rat. These can be wealth ships, image of money, actual metal coins. This Ho Tu combination also brings excellent “Peach Blossom” luck.
So if North is your bedroom and you are NOT expecting mother, you can activate your love luck by placing Pair of the ducks in this sector as well. For married couples living in the North bedroom it is also good to use infinity knot or longevity sign, and metal Wu Lou. Place Dragon headed tortoise and Victory banner image here to protect and increase career and business luck. As well as “Evil eye” and Ru Yi cure or image. Use metal singing bowl and metal rode wind chimes in this sector. Metal supports Water element. In overall, use Water element colors and shapes in the North as well as Metal colors, materials and shapes to increase positive influence of Flying star 9.
Romance however can be afflicted and erratic. It may lead to health problems associated with heart or eyes, sexual function and fertility, and lead to miscarriages. But it also, if joined, creates the sum of ten, creating energies that are powerful, bringing auspicious career and money luck. If your room or home office is located in the North sector of the home then chances for your business luck in 2014 are very good. As enchantment, place a metal wealth tree here to bring good fortune luck. North is also great sector to place metal wind chimes, both inside and outside.
It would be wise for pregnant women, who’s bedroom may be located in North, to possibly relocated to another sector in 2014. Fire – Water conflict may also cause high emotions rise and it is highly advisable to avoid arguments or explosion of anger here, as well. Actually it is always advisable to watch out for anger, as it causes blood pressure rising and leads us to nothing other than heart attacks and strokes.
Avoid using green and brown tones, as well as yellow, orange, red, purple and pink tones in decorating of this sector. It is ok if you already have a red walls or furniture, just add accents of the Metal and Water elements: Black, Blue, Silver, White and Gray. You don not have to repaint your entire home every year, because flying stars move and change direction. Just decrease specific element’s effect by including it’s colors. In this case it is the , white, blues, black, gray or silver-grey tones. If you have a red walls you can simply add the metal pictures frames and blue slip covers and toss pillows to reduce conflict of the energy. Use the similar blue/silver and white scale tones if the North sector is your bedroom or kitchen. If it is your kitchen simply replace red dishes and accessories with the blue once for a year and you are good to go.
Specific Feng Shui cures for the North are indoor fountains and aquariums, Dragon headed Tortoise, round singing bowls, bells and images or statues of the Horses. You can also hang Six Rod Wind chime in this sector, it can be placed either on the outside, on the roof of your house or simply hang indoors. Traditional Victory banner wind chime is the best, but if you do not use very traditional cures – simply use 6 metal rod wind chime.
Salt Water Cure is another powerful cure for negative influence of major affliction stars. This is actually an ancient cure, but it has widely spread in the past years among Feng Shui practitioners thanks to the great British Feng Shui adviser, Michael Hanna©. Lillian Too also began selling “pre-built” Salt water cure . ( This is an actual picture of the one I owe).
It is great looking and almost looks as an art piece vase, but personally I prefer home made cure, as it is easy to make, almost priceless (under $10.00) and you will feel no regret when you dispose it next year.
To make this cure you will need 6 Chinese metal coins, 1/2 or salt and glass container. Make sure you place it on the additional plate or non-damaging surface(stone plate or glass plate are the best), as the salt will begin to “grow” during the year. Fill the container with salt, about 1/3. Place coins in the circle and fill remaining space with water. Place in afflicted area and DO NOT TOUCH it until ready to dispose before new year.
The key to this cure is not to be disturbed, as Salt gathers all negative energies within and growth as a result. Make sure you DO NOT touch, spill or flip over this container all year. You do need to add water as a year progresses, but do it carefully without disturbing the container itself, by simply poring it from the top. When you ready to dispose it next year, do it by covering container with plastic bag first and try not to touch it with your bare hands. NEVER DISPOSE IT INTO YOUR TOILET OR SINK, you will be basically poring out your last year negative energy into your plumbing
There is also a specific cure for “3 Killings” to be used only during the years of the Dog, Horse, and Tiger, when this star appears in North. Place three large boulders in the North during these years. It should minimize effect of “3 Killings”.
Do not disturb this area with loud noises and if you can move major electronics (like stereo systems, home theater, TV, fax machine, fan, air conditioner or even computer) away from North corner of the house, room or office. Simply move it to another non-afflicted area for this year. Use Blue crystals and dragons and Chi Ling statue of image as part of the traditional cures.
If this is your laundry room, for example, and vibrations are unavoidable, place Salt Water cure near the washer or dryer, somewhere above the appliances.
Summary for NORTH:
Salt Water Cure
If this is area of your stove, place metal elements around to balance possible energy conflict
USE BLUE, WHITE AND GRAY TONES and shapes of Metal and Water elements
Remove all the plants from the North
Place Dragon headed Tortoise next to the singing bowl or Metal bell
Metal Wu Lou, and longevity vase in a bedroom
Hang 6 hollow rod metal wind chimes
Money symbols everywhere: Ships, Dragons, Ingot, Wealth Vase
DO NOT DIG, REPAIR OR DISTURB this sector as much as you can.
In order to make it easier for finding all the cures listed I created this list of great websites with affordable prices. Always remember that in Feng Shui, cures are very symbolic representation of energetic field we do not see. But they only produce energy protection after you personally energize them. Every intention of protection is also heavily depends on your faith in the cures and your personal intent. Mind is the most powerful protection of all. It has strong capacity to generate physical fields and effect not only us but everyone else around. As His Holiness the Dalai Lama said:
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
Having peaceful and kind mind is about 99% of your Feng Shui protection. Remaining 1% can be found here:
1. http://www.fengshui-import.com/ – Very affordable, fast & cheap shipping in US. I personally use this site for many of my cures.
2. http://www.fsmegamall.com/ – Official Lillian Too site. Well, fantastic quality items, but HEAVILY overpriced. Shipping charges are not worth it, if you live in US. She does, however, has sales sometimes and very unique items, such as Mantra scarfs. I try to stay non-sectarian in my report simply because not every one practicing Feng Shui is Buddhist. On contrast – many are not. So, I do not usually include in my report specific Mantras for protection, simply because I feel it is a matter of faith. But Lillian Too does offer great variety of objects with Mantras which are honestly GREAT protection. So if you interested in adding spiritual protection to general cures – this site is a great source.
3. http://www.fengshui-gift.com/store/home.php – another one of my favorites as well. They have all Spiritual Cures from Lillian Too, but shipped from US.
4. http://www.uniquefengshui.com/ – Great items, fast shipping, but lack of customer support. Otherwise I still highly recommend.
5. http://www.zambala.com/ – great store. Everything is perfect. Prices are middle range, not too low, but is affordable for most of us. Also great source of spiritual specific cures.
