Every year in Feng Shui, the annual flying Stars change location around February 4, according to the Chinese solar calendar. Throughout the 12 months of the year of the Metal Rat Geng Zi 庚子 2020, there will be 4 sectors within your home or work place that will be affected by unfavorable energies and others that will be occupied by more positive stars. You must first understand the effects of negative stars and know how to submit them using elementary cures. Then, be interested in the favorable stars and how to activate them.
And a little extra remark: do not put elementary cures in a negative area of your home will not pose any problems if you can avoid using it! So simply remember to spend more time in the so-called favorable areas and to avoid as much as possible the areas occupied by unfavorable stars. As we often repeat, for an energy to have an effect on you you first have to be in contact with it. This is valid for both favorable and unfavourable energies.
