Every year in Feng Shui, the annual flying Stars change location around February 4, this year it will be on February 3rd, according to the Chinese solar calendar. Throughout the 12 months of the year of the Metal Ox Xin Chou 辛丑 2021, 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.
Star 5 in the Southeast
The Star of Bad Luck
As its name suggests, it brings bad news, bad luck, loss of money, health problems and other disasters. The yellow star 5 takes up residence in the Southeast in 2021, making this area the worst of your home. Avoid using or spending too much time in this sector, if possible, avoid this area completely. Place Metal or a salt water cure in the Southeast and remove any Fire element! Do not undertake major renovations in this area and also avoid moving large furniture. This year the people born under the sign of the Dragon and the Snake and the Gua 4 people will suffer the most from its harmful influence.
