feng shui year of the snake 2013Feng Shui Year of the Snake 2013 Earth Luck — by Edgar Lok Tin Yung Dec 2012

If you avoid the big Sha Qi, activate the number-6 (power) star and number-8 (money) star, you will have a nice year of the Snake to come.

Earth Luck is the Feng Shui components of our house and office in the year of the Snake. It is to deal with the good and bad energy / Qi where we live, work and play. We need to activate the good energy / Qi and balance the bad energy /Qi.

Each year, there are three big Sha (煞氣Bad Energy) and two lucky stars flying around. These three Sha have the power to override any natal flying stars chart combination regardless how good the flying star chart was. These three Sha are called the Grand duke or Tai Sui(太歲), Three-killings (三煞) and Five Yellow (五黃). The two positive energy or lucky stars are number 6 and 8. Here are the positions for the good and bad energy in the year of the Snake around your house.

1. Tai Sui (Grand Duke). It is located at the Southeast South. Snake Position.
2. San Sha (Three-killings) arrives at the East.
3. Five Yellow. It is landed at the middle palace.
4. The power and promotion star number 6 is at Northwest.
5. The money and prosperity star number 8 is at Northeast.

A Feng Shui saying stated that: “Avoid big Sha. Cure medium Sha. Neglect tiny Sha.” (大煞宜避, 中煞可制, 小煞不理)
The number one rule to deal with Sha energy is NOT to disturb it. So “Move Earth”, digging ground or renovating those areas/sectors inside or outside the house is prohibited.

Feng Shui year of the snake 2013 Qi distribution
The Southeast South Si (142.5 – 157.5 巳字位) has Tai Sui Sha.

Tai Sui or Grand Duke is the yearly King. The Tai Sui locates at the South East South in the year of the Snake. The Si belongs to Xun Gwa (巽卦) and it is soft Wood element. It is related to the soft wood system in our body including, hair, the liver, the gall bladder, arms, legs and back, so the health issues related to soft wood element could be hair lose, liver problems (alcoholic problems), gall bladder stone, broken arms and legs if the main door is facing Southeast south. Lady’s age 40 – 59 should pay more attention if living in such facing house.

The best way to minimize bad luck and sickness is not to stir up the yearly bad energy spots/sector. Yearly bad energy is like a sleeping tiger. It will be fine if the sleeping tiger has not been disturbed. However, if the tiger is wakening up, it will bite you. “Move Earth”, renovation, will wake the tiger (Bad Energy) up, so DO NOT dig, nailing, chisel and renovate the Tai Sui sector including the floor, ground, garden, and the walls inside and outside.

If your house facing Southeast South or the main door is located at the Tai Sui sector Southeast south, be sure closing the door slowly and gently when coming in or going out, as loud noise, sound waves vibration, can trigger the bad energy too.
To reduce the impact of the Tai Sui, place a round metal objects such as round metal vase near the Southeast south facing door. If you are hanging a wind chime, make sure you use the metal one with only 4 pipes.

The Three-Killings comes to the East sector (Zhen Gwa 震卦67.5 – 112.5)

The East sector got the Three-killings in 2013. It covers a very big area. Three-killings represent lawsuits, gossips, arguments. It is at the elder son’s area (age 40 – 59).

The East sector is Wood element. In health, it is related to the arms, legs, back, livers, and hips. If a house is facing East or the main door located at the East sector, the Elder son of house would easily have such problems.
In the big scale, the East sector of China is Shanghai and further east is Japan, Korea. In Feng shui year of the Snake 2013, it will not be very stable in these areas. There will be more water related incidents or earthquakes, Tsunamis, nuclear explosions, fire, gas explosions. There will be a lot more lawsuits, arguments or even military actions in 2013.

Make sure the East sector of the house is clean and tidy. Keep this area as quiet as possible. If the Three-killing bad energy is disturbed, there would be 3 unfortunate incidents such as health issues, career problems, traffic accidents or lawsuits.

To minimize bad energy of the Three-killing place a large metal vase or a round metal plate in the east sector of the house. Don’t keep fish tank with motor pump or large green pot plants in the area.

You cannot change the main door position but you can move yourself away from the bad energy areas.

The Five Yellow is at the Heaven heart – The Centre

The Five Yellow is a bad star. It represents misfortune and obstacle. In the year of the Snake it lands at the centre of the house. This will be affecting everyone of a household. The Five yellow star is earth element. It brings issue related to stomach, digestive system, and gastro problems if the centre of the house is disturbed. It is advised not to burn candles or place large red object in the centre area.

The money star 8 and power star 6

The money annual star number 8 which means prosperity is located in the Northeast sector in the Feng Shui year of the Snake 2013. As mentioned above, it is related to finance. There are a few ways you can activate the money star.

You can move to and sleep at this area if there is a room. If there is a doorway, use it more often for coming in or going out. Place a ceramic vase or a ceramic made dog in the area. One thing you need to be aware is that at the Northeast North in the Ox position has a bad energy called “Golden God Sha”. If you accidentally nail the area, it will bring eye problem.

The promotion annual star number 6 star comes to Northwest. Annual flying star number 6 is metal element and it represents power and promotion. To activate this area you need to place 6 x 20 cents coins with the heads face upward in this sector. Make sure you wash the coins first.

All the best and have a prosperity Feng Shui year of the Snake 2013!
