How you can dodge the fury of Tai Sui, Grand Duke, Three Sha, year breaker, 3 killings, Sui Po, Three Killings in the year of the Yin Fire Rooster 2017
Each year, we are confronted with a long list of boring tasks and chores to complete throughout the year involving maintenance of the house, office, shop and gardens. For myself, as the year seems to fly past, I need to make sure that I take care when I am doing upkeep around my home and so should you if you are to try and avoid the fury of Tai Sui (Grand Duke), Sui Po, the Three Killings and more in 2017.
If you are doing any work in the south, east or west this year, you will need to take extra care as this is where they are located during the year of the Yin Fire Rooster.
You will find this information below; you may also be interested to know that our Feng Shui 2017 software will calculate for every year ahead and many other features too long to list here.
The Three Killings also called three sha is a paraphrase from the Chinese ‘San Sha’. Although the perception of the three killings is associated with three earthly branches, its position is defined according to one of the four cardinal compass directions, namely North (water), East (wood), South (fire) and West (metal).
These earthly branches are not the three killings; they simply indicate the position of the three killing affliction in a given year. The three killings sit in the opposite cardinal direction (spanning 90 degrees) of the phase represented by the year’s earthly branch.
The most effective cure for this is to not disturb the ground where the Three Killings resides. Which I know is easier said than done. You should take extra care with this if the house faces the same direction as the three killings. If the location of the Three Killings is disturbed by noisy restoration or excavating activities, there may be unwelcome penalties for the residents which may involve poor health, loss of prosperity, mishaps, injury and, in extreme cases, the occupants could face fatalities but the good news is, there is a lot you can do to prevent this and why you need to study this information carefully and share with as many people as possible.
If you have a front door that you regularly use that faces the Three Killings’ direction which is east in 2017, this is considered a disruption due to the constant opening and closing of the door especially so if the hinges creak or you have young children that bang the door closed.
You should take a lot of care as to not slam the door as the Three Killings can be a lot more settled if the door is opened and shut calmly. The traditional cure is to place a pair of Chi Lin (TempleLions– Fu Dogs) just inside the door facing outwards.
So in 2017 if your door is in the south, east or west, you should follow our annual advice and place a pair of Fu Dogs or Temple Lions by your door and try to avoid using the door if this is possible although I can appreciate that this is easier said than done.
How can I prevent problems with the garden in 2017?
The traditional cure for this is to place a six rod hollow metal wind chime between the property and the place of disruption. You can if you want use any metal object but the ideal cure would be to place a metal wind chime with six hollow metal rods.
You should never sit with your back to the Three Killings but should always try and sit facing it. Each year we get hundreds of emails asking about the positioning of sofa chairs in the living room.
You should not sit with your back to the Three Killings but this does not refer to isolated incidents as much; it is prolonged periods of time spent in this position that affect you more. Avoid having your back to the east in 2017 for a time longer than 2 hours per day if possible.
For example: if you sit at your office desk with your back to the Three Killings (east in 2017), this could affect your rapport with coworkers and can also affect your performance at work.
Tai Sui which is also known as Grand Duke Jupiter and is also named the Year Star and its position is signified by the earthly branch (Chinese animal) of the year. The positions of the twelve earthly branches are: Rat (north), Ox and Tiger (northeast), Rabbit (east), Dragon and Snake (southeast), Horse (south), Sheep and Monkey (southwest), Rooster (west) and Dog and Boar (northwest).
Unlike San Sha Three Killings, it is not advisable to sit facing Tai Sui for prolonged periods of time and instead, you may sit with your back to Tai Sui for support but the ideal solution would be to avoid sitting or facing Tai Sui all together if possible. In 2017, it is even more important that you do not sit facing the west as to do so would mean that you are both facing Tai Sui and also sitting with your back to the Three Killings. If you have a front door or office desk that faces the direction of Tai Sui in 2017 (west), a very important cure and enhancer to place is a Tang JieTai Sui Plaque. I must strongly advise you not to disturb the ground of the location where Tai Sui sits for the year. For the best protection in the year of the Rooster, take a look at the 2017Cures and Enhancers Kits.
The 2017 Annual Feng Shui Afflictions:
The Three Killings – East (52.5-127.5)
It is important that you do not make any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in the east part of your house or office between February 3rd 2017 and February 4th 2018. You should not disturb the ground by digging holes, digging foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden. If you have no option but to perform work in the east, I would advise that you place a 6 hollow rod metal wind chime in the east around the time the work is being carried out. This is the worst out of all the annual afflictions and in our home and business we take this very seriously as in our 36 years’ experience with Feng Shui we have seen some pretty nasty events from this energy when disturbed.
Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) – west(262.5º – 277.5º)
Like the Three Killings, Tai Sui does not like to be disturbed either. The effects of Tai Sui can be good or bad depending on the annual flying stars that coincide with its location and in 2017 we also have the visiting Chen 3 Jade (Lu Cun Xing) wood star in the west which can cause problems if not treated correctly.
If your property or front door faces west in 2017, you must try to avoid the doors from slamming when entering or leaving your home or office. You should avoid digging or renovating your property in this area at all costs if possible.If you have an office or shop door in the west this year, I would recommend installing a soft close attachment if possible and if you have children in your home, try to keep these doors from being slammed. The traditional Chinese method to appease Tai Sui is to place a Yi Bai Fu Mian Qi Sheng Chi Talisman and Tang Jie Tai sui gold plated plaque for 2017 to pay respect and appease the Deity. By paying respect to Grand Duke of Jupiter, we can weaken or avoid the problems this can bring. This is really important this year and we have included the yi bai fu mian qi talisman and Tang Jie Tai Sui plaque in all our annual cures and enhancers kits.In 2017, the ruling Tai Sui is great general Tang Jie who is one of 60 heavenly generals. The Tai Sui plaque is plated in gold to represent wealth and was specially made for 2017, year of the Yin Fire Rooster to be placed in the west. The magnetic hematite is used to represent earth which creates a cycle of earth feeding Metal to enhance wealth in the west.
Sui Po (Year Breaker) – east (82.5º – 97.5º)
Sui Po year breaker occupies the division directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2017 is east and is also the location of the Three Killings for the Yin Wood Rooster year. You should treat this area the same as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities. If disturbed this area can and usually will cause immediate health problems especially with regards to the elderly, so please be very careful. Traditionally to appease Sui Po in a Rooster year you need to display a Caiyuan Guang Jin Master Cure and Huo Zai Dragon and Ru Yi which we have included in all of our Annual Cures and Enhancers kit for 2017.
How far do we take the advice we give?
We will also be placing all the 2017 cures to help dissipate the negative energy that is present for the year. Am I concerned about the west this year? Not in the least, having good Feng Shui is actually being aware of potential dangers and making allowances and placing cures, you can and will avoid many problems.
What can I do if I have to repair outside drains or have a similar restoration?
If your garden is in the south, west or east in 2017, you should avoid disturbing the ground in 2017 but some things just can’t be left; for example overgrown trees or a drain that is completely destroyed.
If you cannot avoid construction work or excavating, use the following rules to reduce any harm that may result. Place a six-rod metal wind chime between your house and building work whilst the work is being done
- When you cut your grass start trimming or mowing from a different corner of the garden. Let us say your garden is in the south of the property.
- The simple thing to remember is AVOID doing heavy work here and no digging or breaking ground, I have seen some nasty repercussions created from disturbing these afflictions in a year way too many times.
