On February 4th 2011, every single person in the world will enter a new solar Chinese New year, the year of the Yin Metal Rabbit (Xin Mao). The last time we had a Yin Metal Rabbit (Xin Mao) year was back in 1951 and this is known as a cycle of 60 which will be found in a traditional “ten thousand year calendar or our Tong Shu software).
In 2011, certain Cures and Enhancers will be needed more than ever as the flying star #8 flies into the northwest metal Chien palace and this can cause financial problems and/or problems with the eldest male in the home or business as there is a clash of elements in the northwest palace and very special and little known cures and talismans are needed in 2011.
In February 2011, the most auspicious number 8 star visits the northwest and we will need some very powerful cures and enhancers as there is a clash of elements between earth and metal.
The 2011 Feng Shui cures and enhancers kit is not just some gimmicky cures put together; these products are extremely powerful cures and enhancers that only the most advanced Feng Shui Masters and Practitioners throughout the world use and quite a few of the cures in our kits are one that many Feng Shui Masters charge thousands of pounds for.
It does not matter how late in the year in 2011 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 wealth problems, sickness, arguments, bankruptcy, legal problems, loss of wealth, relationship problems, indigestion and skin problems, car accidents or if you want to enhance the positive areas in 2011 read on…
In 2011 the #8white Star (Zuo Fu) visit the northwest Chien palace and whilst #8 star is an auspicious star, the fact that it is in conflict with the metal energy of the NW palace could cause many problems associated with finances and some very powerful cures are needed in 2011 to tackle this.
The Year of the Rabbit is normally a more peaceful year which is a blessing after the turbulent year of the Tiger although there will still be many ups and downs throughout the year and very special Feng Shui cures and enhancers are needed to avoid problems in 2011 especially when it comes to finance as this is an area that needs many cures and enhancers in 2011.
With the Rabbit year you can expect a quieter year than last although finances are still an issue that need care, especially as we have the #8 wealth star flying into the northwest, this clash of elements can bring financial problems so financial control is still needed.
Finances may be a problem to you in 2011 but if you use the Gui Yao Master cure, you can turn bad into good with regards to wealth and luck. There are many good aspects of 2011 and if you follow the advice below you CAN AVOID many of the problems and this is the reason why we introduced our annual cures and enhancers kits back in 1999.
The forecast for the Rooster may be inauspicious in 2011 but please remember that this is only one small influence in the big scheme of things in your life. Things can turn out really well despite this; if you turn your attention to the annual and monthly flying star forecast for your home and office in order to reduce predicaments. Combine this with flying star 2011 software and date selection software, you increase your chances of a fantastic year even more.
Surely our 2011 cures and enhancers will make me exempt from any problems?
If your bedroom is in the north, east or south and you smoked, ate junk food daily, drank heavily and are bit of a couch potato and thought that taking a vitamin C tablet at the end of the day will rejuvenate your body and mind, you are very much mistaken.
As hard as this may sound, you will, I guarantee you will have problems in 2011 but if you make changes this year you will avoid many of those problems, placing just the cures and enhancers on their own will help tremendously but you also should make lifestyle changes as well and I think the good that will come from 2011 will be that we will appreciate more of what we have and to me this is real wealth.
With all that said please do not start panicking if your bedroom, living room, main door or office are located in the north, east or south. The first step is to start preparing to place your 2011 cures and enhancers kit to ensure a trouble free year in 2011, 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.
My home office is located 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 provided this advice on-line to hundreds of thousands of Feng Shui Masters, Practitioners, students and enthusiast for 12 years now and although we make suggestions on cures we do not always 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 do strongly recommend, which are, our 2011 annual cures kit and the world’s most powerful and most widely used all new Feng Shui 2011 software, with over seven years in development, over 52 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 thousands 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 & enhancer’s kit?
To cleanse your old cures, ideally you should place them outside under a full moon overnight or in direct sunlight for at least 4 hours during the day and sprinkle with rock salt or normal 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.
I cannot afford these cures or enhancers and/or my partner does not believe in Feng Shui?
Your home or office will not have to look like a Chinese takeaway 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 east of your home or office, you could use good quality heavy, metal ornaments, a good shape to use 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 of 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 in the east and south 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 very clean as it will cause you many problems if it becomes dirty. I am not that keen on recommending using a bowl because they can get dirty especially if you live in a hot country and can cause many problems, so please be careful if you do not use the salt cure.
If you look at all the information below you will find more alternatives for all the compass sectors without having to buy anything.
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.
Sample of a Flying Star chart (natal chart)
Generated with our Professional Feng Shui software. This does not just focus on annual and monthly stars but also your fixed stars that are hundreds of times more powerful.
2011 is the 4708th year of the Chinese calendar.
In China, the solar calendar of the Xin Mao (Yin metal Rabbit) year starts on 4th February 2011.
You can find a page on world times for the solar and lunar Chinese New Years to avoid any confusion, World times Chinese New Year
- The first day of the Hsia (solar) calendar is February 4th 2011, this is the day you would place your Feng Shui cures and enhancers.
- Chinese New Year falls on February 3rd 2012 (Lunar calendar). This is the date you celebrate the Chinese New Year with Ang Pow, fireworks Talismans etc and not the date you use to place cures and enhancers in Feng Shui. For more details on 2011 Chinese New year click here.
HOW TO FIND THE 2011 COMPASS SECTORS 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 but don’t worry if it is not, it will give you a good idea either way. Define all the interior walls that indicate the different rooms. You can actually do your own floor plan within our Feng Shui software which makes it very easy.
Secondly, you need to divide your floor plan into 9 grids or wedges in proportion as shown below. Next, you need to know the compass direction of your home or office.
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 in 2011 you will see from below that the #5 star falls into the east area for this home which is a bedroom and this will cause many problems if you do not place any cures.
This is why I do not want to know any personal details on a client that I consult for, as these numbers (along with land formations around the home) tell me everything about health, wealth, career and every part of their life.
“People may not remember what you did for them, or even what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel”
The 2011 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:
The Three Killings – is a direct translation from the Chinese ‘San Sha’. This yearly affliction is mainly in the west (232.5º to 307.5º). It is imperative that you do not undertake any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the north part of your house or office between February 4th 2011 and February 3rd 2012.
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 31 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 (west). Secondly, it is better to face (west) this direction, especially if this is one of your four favourable personal directions.
If your front door faces the west in 2011, place a pair of Fu Dogs just inside the house looking outwards as protective guardians for the year. You must also place a golden coloured Pi Yao in the west looking towards the east, this cure is so important in 2011.
If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the west 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 Feng Shui Practitioner to select an auspicious date to start the work or you can use our Tong Shu software.
Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) resides between 82.5º – 97.5º east.
Do not take this affliction lightly. Do not disturb the ground in the east at all costs.
East facing properties with front doors to the east must be careful not to allow the doors to slam and do not renovate or dig in this part for 2011.
With the very inauspicious #5 Lian Zhen star also visiting the east palace in 2011 you have earth meeting wood which is a destructive combination and can cause bad luck and health problems and needs very specific cures and of course when you combine all this destructive energy with the even more destructive Tai Su (Grand Duke) you need the best cure available in the NE in 2011.
You need a special cure – These come standard with all our 2011 cures and enhancers kits.
Sui Po (The year breaker)
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2011 is west (262.5 – 277.5). 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 west 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 east this year and because the east is associated with wood energy this is not good and the reason why so many cures are needed in 2011. It is highly recommended not to disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work. Homes with gardens or driveways in the east 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.
Please do not start worrying if your bedroom or office are located in the east, just start preparing to place your 2011 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.
How far do we take the advice we give?
My kitchen door falls in the south and we will be using our southwest door to enter and leave the home to get to our rear and side gardens in 2011, it will be a little inconvenient for us but it really does make a big difference and this year we need as much wind on our back as we can gather.
If you are moving furniture around this year, especially your work desk, it is vital that you must never sit facing this 15º sector (east). 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 east and he will support you. Avoidance is the best cure.
How far do we take this no digging or no noisy equipment?
What if your garden is in the east, west or south? Does this mean no cutting the lawn or cutting back the trees with a noisy hedge trimmer in 2011? 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.
In 2008 we had to replace our large driveway that fell in the north, northwest and northeast and whilst some of these areas were affected 2008 was the best year to do the work and if we left it until 2010 it would have caused us many problems, we employed extra builders (6 in total) to ensure the work was done over 6 days as even the monthly stars can have an influence. With placing all the cures in 2008 and also placing a six rod wind chime in the NW we had no problems at all.
- Place a six-rod metal wind chime between your house and building work whilst the work is being done.
- The simple thing to remember is AVOID doing heavy work here and no digging or breaking ground, I have seen too many times some nasty repercussions from disturbing these afflictions in a year.
2011 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 Master Michael he will be able to advise you better for 2011 or if you have a copy of our Feng Shui software it will show you where all your wealth areas are.
Kan 1 White In 2011, Kan (Tang Lang) trigram is in the northeast.
Kan #1 is a water element. In the physical body it is the ear. Internal organ it is the kidneys and also blood. It also affects career and luck. In 2011 it is a timely star.
Kan water #1 (tang Lang) has flown into the northeast location for 2011, the northeast is an earth energy and from a five element aspect this is a destructive association with earth controlling water and if the correct cures and enhancers are not placed this can cause you problems.
If you activate the northeast correctly in 2011 it can bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and scholarly pursuits and very good for relationships at home and work. The intensity of these attributes will differ in varying degrees according to the influence of the visiting monthly stars, so it is important to place your annual cures and enhancers in the northeast.
If the northeast is a bedroom, office, study lounge or other important room, you should place a wealth protection Xiu Lung Wealth & romance charm which is to protect and activate wealth in 2011, this cure is very important in 2011 and must also be combined with a pair of Elephants with trunks raised.
These are very traditional and authentic enhancers for the #1 flying star that occupies the northeast palace in 2011. The Dragon represent wealth and protection and catalyst to enhance further along with three beautiful i-ching coins giving ultimate protection and enhancement of wealth making this the perfect enhancer and also protector of wealth, business and career. You need this cure in 2011 also to weaken the undesirable influences of the monthly stars #2 and #5 which will visit in February, August and November 2011 and the reason why they should be placed. These powerful cures and enhancers are very important in 2011 and comes standard in our 2011 cures and enhancers kit.
Summary for year 2011:
The best months for the northeast are March, May, July, September and December.
Take extra care in the months of February, June, August, October and November and check back here to further analyse these months.
You can also place a moving (yang) water feature in the northeast in 2011 but only inside a property, water must not be placed outside in 2011 unless you have had a Feng Shui Master advise you.
To get a better idea of whether to use water for wealth it is a good idea to construct a flying star chart of your home and then decide, or if you want the easy way look at our new 2011 Feng Shui software as this not only calculates it also advises on placement for wealth, health, relationships and every other aspect.
Enhancement summary and advice.
- A set of six coins in a row tied with red ribbon is advisable for a bedroom or other important room that you spend a lot of time in that falls into the northeast along with all shades of blue, black, grey or charcoal colours. This is especially so if you are not in good health and if you cannot buy six coins in a row tied with red ribbon place a heavy round object close to your bed but avoid candles or colours red, pink, orange, purple or any fire colours.
- If the youngest male is weak and/or unhealthy be careful if extending or refurbishing the northeast of your home or office in 2011 as it could cause them problems.
- Naturally not as powerful but round metal shapes are an alternative to using Feng Shui items but avoid sharp or menacing looking metal objects.
Kun 2 Black In 2011, the Kun 2 Black (Ju Men) visits the south
The south in 2011 is not a nice area at all but with the placement of the cures and enhancers we can actually receive a little benefit from the #2 star. This is because the #2 earth star visits the #9 purple Yon Bi star (south) which is associated with wealth and good fortune. The element relationship between these two stars is constructive although the #2 is very inauspicious and must have cures placed otherwise it will cause many problems in 2011 as it is being enhanced and strengthened by the fire energy of the south. If your bedroom, office, lounge, main door or other important room is located in the south and you are unable to move out please read this section carefully.
If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the south this will inevitably activate its malicious effects, so read on…
We have the #2 star visiting the south #9 palace and when we see 2 & 9 together the potential of bad luck is very strong so please make sure you follow the advice in this report.
Ladies expecting should try and avoid using a bedroom if it is located in the south especially middle daughters. If there is no choice, try to use a good (southwest, northwest or northeast) 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. Males who spend a lot of time in the south should be careful of what they eat in 2011 and a good time to think about a lifestyle change.
More importantly, do not decorate the south room with red fire colours or triangle shape items and most important avoid burning candles or leaving bright fiery coloured lights on for too long during the year.
Good news 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 2011:
Do not activate this area with loud noises, keep quiet and avoid building work or refurbishment although it is not too bad. 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.
- Place a salt water cure.
- Try and keep the south of your home as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations in 2011.
- You can use any metal ornament as long as it is not sharp or aggressive looking, and believe it or not a good cure is a round metal dog bowl or weight lifters weights.
- A brass wealth ingot is good for protecting wealth.
- Place a gold coloured three legged Toad with an i-ching coin underneath.
- Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.
Chen 3 Jade In 2011, the sound of Lu Chun #3 Jade can be heard in the north palace.
With the unpredictable #3 star visiting the north in 2011 you must be aware of potential theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers, loss of wealth and legal problems especially if you have a main door or important room in the north.
Those of you with a middle son also need to take note but do not start worrying, with the cures and enhancers in place you will avoid many problems. Try and keep the north of your home as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations in 2011.
Do not have a water feature inside here unless a professional Feng Shui Practitioner has advised you. Some books or websites you may have read will tell you the #3 wood star can be a good star in period 8 (2004 – 2024), 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 Feng Shui 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 even recommending placing water here for the annual #3 star, do this and you could invite arguments, wealth problems, divorce and legal problems, without taking into account your land formations, period, mountain and water stars, please be very 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 like water 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 Trigram of the occupants, please be very careful of this unpredictable flying star.
Ensure that documents signed during the year are checked through thoroughly before committing. The influence of a Chen 3 in Period 8 denotes possible arguments, disagreement, back stabbing and in extreme cases, this can result in lawsuits, either as a petitioner or a defendant and also causes loss of wealth.
Either case there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during 2011 especially if you have a main door in the north and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. You should also hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection in 2011. The reason why it is very bad in 2011 is because when the #3 star flies into the north Kan palace which is a water element, wood and water elements are in harmony which is good but there are negatives with this and important that you use annual cures to avoid potential legal issues and problems with relationships.
To calm interactions:
- Place a light in the north if you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.
- During hot summer months, make sure the fan is not located in the north or north of a room.
- Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and can be from someone you thought you knew quite well.
- Invest in a good compass and avoid placing machines like a TV, fan, fax machine, computer or any machines that creates noise or vibration in the north of any room.
- Most important is not to disturb the ground inside or out.
Sun 4 Green Sun 4 Green Wen Qu romance and literacy star gracefully enters the southwest of the Lo Shu in 2011.
The Sun wood 4 occupies the earthy southwest palace in 2011 and this is a conditional star but is auspicious in Period 8 (2004–2024). It governs romance, career, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. With the wood of the #4 star combined with the earth energy of the #2 star this is a conflicting relationship and we can expect a fiery energy although if activated correctly with the correct enhancers we can receive some peach blossom energy for here which is lovely for relationships and career.
If you want to further enhance this wonderful star you must also use a very special Shuo Fu enhancer which is a very special talisman printed and displayed in the southwest between 4th February 2011 to 3rd February 2012 along with a scroll of all your wishes and a superb enhancer not just for romance but also for career, wealth and business.
Last year in 2010 we used a stone heart but sadly this cannot be used this year as the talisman is different. We have included the 2011 talisman standard in our 2011 cures and enhancers kit as it is very important to place for relationships and career.
Couples with a bedroom in this location can 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 southwest or south part of your bedroom.
Another traditional way to enhance fertility is to 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.
Summary for year: With the above cures and enhancers in place you should reap the rewards from 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, crystal, alternative, health industry.
Avoid fire element and colours red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue, grey 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.
Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here especially wind chimes from the 2011 cures. Spend time in the southwest if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
Cures and enhancers summary:
- Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.
- Make sure you remove all the metal cures like the salt cures and six coins in a row from the 2010 cures and enhancers kit from the southwest as this will cause many relationship problems if left.
- For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added on the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc
The 5 Yellow In 2011, the annual 5 Yellow Lian Zhen star of tragedy is located in the east palace.
The East is the very worst area in 2011 and you must be aware of potential theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers, loss of wealth and legal problems especially if you have a main door or important room in the east. Females also need to take note but do not start worrying, with the cures and enhancers in place you will avoid many problems.
For those of you that know me you will know I like to try and give bad news as optimistically as I can and firmly believe the power of the mind is as powerful as Feng Shui and providing you give the correct software to the brain you can turn bad into good. We have proved that many years so please be positive, you can avoid many problems and read this information a few times over so you are prepared for 2011.
The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen)’ in Chinese, is one of the bad annual afflictions. It is an extremely unstable star. It has no gender and no trigram and is highly treacherous when disturbed. When disturbed, its malicious influence brings tragedy, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. Do be careful with it. Stillness together with metal cures can keep its negative influences at bay and you must avoid using fire energy like reds and candles in the east in 2011.
As we have so many negative afflictions in the east with the annual #5 yellow along with Tai Sui Grand Duke 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 influence.
Even a pendulum chiming clock in the east is very good and whilst this contradicts what I said about keeping the area quiet, the chiming sound of the clock is actually as important as the moving metal of the pendulum. In the old days they would have had someone striking a gong every 15 to 60 minutes.
All these cures are essential and why we have included three of them as standard in all our 2011 cures and enhancers kit.
An alternative cure is place some very heavy good quality round metal objects in the east in 2011, I do not give this advice so you have to buy from us, most of these cures and enhancers I recommend you can put together yourself.
As the energy is very bad in the east in 2011 you must place a synergy cure and enhancer called a Shuang Yan Yu Fu, this is a pair of Buddha’s both with a thought form charm and one placed in the east and the other in the west, these work in harmony with each other and offer much protection and also able to turn good into bad.
Summary: Do not activate the east with loud noises, keep area 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 six-rod wind chime, Wu Lou, 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 east of your home or office as quiet as possible, avoid redecoration and building work in 2011 in the east 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 2011:
Take extra care in the months of March, May, June and December.
Every year we put together a powerful cures and enhancers kit and this year it is even better and more powerful than ever and don’t just take our word though; click here to read hundreds of testimonials that we have received over eleven years from every corner of the world.
Please remember that Tai Sui Grand Duke resides between 82.5º – 97.5º east in 2011. It is vital that you must not disturb this 15º sector in 2011.
To calm interactions:
- Avoid playing loud music in the east of the home or room.
- Do not decorate your room with red or earth colours this year. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily.
- Place a salt water cure in the east of the building along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon and six hollow metal rod wind chime.
- The six coins in row and salt cure are a crucial cure to place in 2011, please do not forget it.
- Place a set of six coins in a row tied with red ribbon in the east corner of the room if this is your bedroom.
- Metal objects such as six Chinese metal coins tied in a red ribbon and/or a brass Dragon can be placed in this corner too. Do not to use red dragons.
- Do not place red objects, burning candles or triangular shaped furnishing in this sector.
- Most of all, avoid disturbing the east at all costs. Any form of renovations that need to be done, plan it for another year. It is worth keeping this in mind.
- A Pi Yao in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the year in the east.
Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven Chien 6 White (Wu Qu) sits in the southeast palace in 2011.
The 6 White Wu Qu is a sympathetic fortune star and as an annual star, its position in the southeast in 2011 it is very good for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the jewellery business, those with a main door, office/study in the southeast will benefit greatly.
This year this #6 star will bring more success for anyone with an office or main door in the southeast especially if activated correctly.
To be safe I would use water colours, especially blue or black if this is a bedroom as for females it can cause mind problems. If this is a bedroom, try and face your Tien Yi or Yan Nien directions. If you have Mandarin ducks, this is where you should ideally place them. If you are a family, place family photos here along with family symbolic objects like a statue/painting of a family etc.
Look outside your building to see if there are any poison arrows like corners of buildings pointing towards your building and if so you could try hanging a Ba Gua mirror to counteract the effects.
You should be careful of the monthly #2 & #5 stars as this can create problems. Especially problems involving the head; you should use metal cures in these months such as six Chinese I Ching coins in a row or a brass singing bowl or similar.
On the whole 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. 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.
Summary for year 2011:
Take extra care in the months of April, July and January.
Enhancers and cures if needed:
Tui 7 RedThe Lofty Wind of Tui (Po Jun) flies into the centre in 2011.
The mischievous Po Jun #7 quarrelsome red star is a negative influence in Period 8. The trigram Tui is also known as ’Broken Soldier’ and because this star is imprisoned in the centre palace that has no gender or Trigram and this is why you need to be careful of deceit, fraud and disputes and the reason why the need for Feng Shui cures and enhancers are so strong in 2011.
This is a fighting star which can cause problems if left alone especially as it has flown into the centre which is in conflict and when combined, it’s conflict negative nature denotes assault, deceit, violence and robbery although the good news is that the earth energy of the centre harmonises with the metal of the #7 star. This area is not good for writers, artist or children studying and especially so for females although cures can be placed to dissipate the negative influence so do not worry.
The #7 Red indicates a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing especially in the months of March and December.
Because the #7 broken solider is trapped in the centre the risk of burglary is higher in 2011, combined with the slow economy you should be looking to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics. Please take this advice seriously as I have been doing this a long time and I know when this combination meets it can cause many problems.
Keep the centre of your home quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and quartz crystals.
Summary for year:
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 Zuo Fu This is the most auspicious governing flying star for the next thirteen years of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying stars (Xuan Kong) system and is located in the northwest in 2011.
Because we are in period 8 though this means the #8 star is dissipated as the northwest is a Chien metal trigram which will weaken the auspicious energy of the #8 star and this is why my prediction of a year similar to 2010 with slow economic growth in 2011 and possible high inflation. So be prepared although the second half of the 2011 should be much better and with using the annual cures the year will be fine.
A very good cure here is a wind chime that is made from real quartz crystal or anything that is made from the earth element like ceramic or terracotta. Outside enhancers are anything that moves with the wind like a whirligig. You should treat this area as your primary wealth area and if possible, store your important financial papers where this combination falls.
This is an overall good combination but you should be aware of potential problems involving business or personal partners.
A good enhancer for this combination is to place some real quartz crystal. If you have windows located in the area that this combination falls, you should try to leave them open as much as possible if security or climate will allow you to do so.
If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are very good for this area. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer is a pair of Mandarin Ducks and is an ideal place to place a 3-legged toad. Keep this area as clutter free as possible and keep it nice and bright with lots of open space.
Most Feng Shui websites and books will say that this will cause severe problems with the #8 star falls into a northwest Chien palace but in my opinion we can make this very auspicious with certain powerful and little known cures and very special talismans that I will talk about shortly.
Wealth, fame. Romance, prestige and distinction can be expected especially if you have an office or main door in the northwest, even if you do not we can still activate it. When activated correctly it brings good fortune and exciting times even with the conflict of elements.
Summary for year.
Take extra care with health in the months of June and September.
- Hang a faceted crystal sphere in the northwest of the house. Hang it above head height and twist now and again.
- Introduce some fire and earth colours into the northwest to balance the energies, a quick and easy way is using bed covers, rugs, table covers, sofa throws etc.
- A romance enhancer is a pair of Mandarin Ducks in the NW this year.
- Earth colours like yellow, brown, beige or taupe are good colours in 2011 and try and avoid blues, black, silver gold or copper.
- Keep area active with open windows and doors (yang energy).
- Keep the area outside and inside the northwest, southwest, northeast and southeast as clear clutter free and open as possible, you need to let the auspicious Qi collect here and distribute inside and outside, when this happens it is know as Ming Tang , this is a collection of Sheng Chi (auspicious energy)
Li 9 Purple (You Bi) Li 9 Purple is found in the west palace in 2011 and this can cause a mix of good and bad and why the year may seem unsettled although if you place all the cures and enhancers it will not be that bad.
9 Purple is the flying 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 west in 2011. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.
You MUST NEVER disturb the west inside or out in 2011 with lots of drilling or knocking activities as we have the three killing and Sui Po located here in 2011. So please be careful. You should also place a Ba Gua mirror especially if you have a main door here; use the wealth protector ba gua with the Chinese i-ching on the back.
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 a bedroom in this location can 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 west part of your bedroom.
Summary for year:
Be aware of the negative influences during the July, August and December and check the monthly flying stars.
- Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.
- Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.
- Symbolic objects such as a wu lou or six Chinese coins can be placed here all year round to enhance benevolent influence and at the same time dissipate the malevolent influence by the visiting monthly #2 and #5.
Water placement in 2011: 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 Feng Shui Practitioner place water outside in the north-east up until 2024.
Outside water in 2011: Can be placed in the south-west or east, this is your primary and secondary wealth areas for the next thirteen years. In 2011 water outside in the southwest is very good but it would not be advisable to install a water feature this year though as the annual flying star is inauspicious although 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 Feng Shui software as it does all the work for you, follow this link.
Indoor water for 2011: You can use a moving water feature or aquarium in the northwest or northeast in 2011. 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 qi 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 2011 and beyond.
