As of May 5th up until June 4th 2012, it is the month of the Yin Wood Snake with the ruling energy of #2 Black in the central grid. As this very inauspicious #2 star Black menacing star enters the Central heaven heart palace, this has a major effect on the whole home. If you have not yet set up your Annual Cures I would strongly recommend you do so before the 5Th May 2012 as this area can cause a great deal of problems. Follow this link for more details for Annual Cures.
The energies present during the month, affect most the sector where the main door, the bedroom/door or the office are located but obviously being in the centre, this should not affect most people. Please note that the facing direction of your main door or house is not necessarily where your main door is located, for more information on this please follow this link.
What do we do with this information? Remember, in Feng Shui, the more activities (noise & movement) within a sector, the more the energies (good or bad) that exist are activated. Hence the advice:
- When it is possible to do so, try to use the beneficial areas more and the areas of negative influences less, where possible.
- Try to use another door if your main door is affected this month.
- Use the good sectors as much as possible to solve existing problems whether it is concerning relationship or money matters.
Hopefully you should have your 2012 annual cures and enhancers kit in place, if so most of the monthly stars should not need any more cures (unless recommended to do so by a Practitioner) Besides, this update is to prepare you for what is possible and to be prepared to take more care or risk in what you do.
The Beneficial Sectors for the Month of Yin Fire Snake are:
South sector is in favour of scholarly pursuits (good for students) and great promotion “luck”. There is fame and recognition on the horizon. A good place to have the three immortals this month. If you have an office or bedroom in the south this will be very good for fame.
!!! Health-wise, if your bedroom is here, heads of family please be more cautious on the road when driving or even crossing roads and be alert during this month. Elderly members of the family who have a history of heart and blood related illness should move out of this bedroom as this month the condition runs risk of getting worse.
Southwest sector has great benefits in finance terms. For those who already have a water feature outside this sector, you will see gains in financial matters.
!!! But please be advised that this sector is potentially harmful to young children under twelve years old. They should move out of this bedroom or take extra care (as Michael said “be prepared”) in this sector for the month.
East sector promotes tremendous success in starting a new business, good romance “luck” and a good time for preparation for students. For romance place Mandarin ducks or anything loving in pairs in this area as it is moderately good for romance especially if your Min Gua number is 9 or 3.
West sector you can use this area for short term romances if your bedroom is here, if your current romance has been flagging it is also good, so expect some sparks if your bedroom if your bedroom located in the west. Be aware though the west can also cause problems with extra martial relations so be careful what you wish for and stay away from any temptation.
Sectors to be aware of:
If you have a main door in this sector of the house, be extra careful on security.
If you sleep in a northwest bedroom, be extra careful if your work is very physical as there is grave indication of possible limb injury.
If you sleep in a northwest bedroom and /or have a northwest office, do not get entangled in office politics and go through documents thoroughly before signing anything as possible legal disputes are indicated.
North sector is in conflict with the presence of the Fire element this month so beware of possible fire hazards. A good time to fit extra smoke alarms.
If you have an office in the north sector, you may find unscrupulous people acting against you.
For couples that are using a north bedroom there may be problems conceiving. Use another bedroom this month to redress the situation. If you cannot move bedrooms place some wood like bamboo in the north this month.
Northeast sector is the most afflicted sector visited by the 5 Yellow supported by the 9 annual star (not a good combination at all). Houses with doors or bedrooms here please take extra care in what you do. There are indications of accidents, illness and just bad luck all round. I would highly recommend using another door and bedroom.
- In the case of a company, if the main door, or in the case of an individual your office/door is in the NE sector, there may be adverse effects. So:
- Be very careful when dealing with finance.
- Do not speculate this month.
- Just stay low this month.
- Do not use this area for important meetings or discussions.
- I would recommend placing a Wu Lou and hang some 6-rod metal wind chimes in this area this month.
If your house door, bedroom or door is located in this sector, tempers might flare and you might feel stressed, unhappy and dissatisfied which could lead to physical disorders relating to the eye, heart and blood. You can:
- Move to a spare room for the month.
- Use metal cures and place them in the NE corner of the room.
- Hang a six hollow rod metal wind-chime in the NE corner of the room. Remember, in trying to hang the chime, do not drill or hammer nails into the wall, as this will aggravate the visiting 5 Yellow. If you have to drill, hang the chime a day before May 5th. Where the 5 Yellow is, we do not disturb its 45º radius.
- Children with a bedroom in this sector,
- If you are unable to move them to another room, make sure their beds or work/study tables are not located in the NE sector of the room. Site them in a beneficial area.
- Example: If your child is in a bedroom in the NE of the home, get your compass stand in the centre of child’s room and this month I would place the child’s bed in the south of the bedroom as the south is good for study this month.
As you can see from above you can turn a bad situation into a better one, the child will not only avoid many problems he will benefit from being in a good area that is good for study. You must try and keep the NE part of their bedroom quiet so not a good idea to have his music centre in NE of room. Remember you can apply this to any room in your home so if your office is in the NE place your desk in the SW this month (make sure your back does not face SW this year).
West sector Whilst this is good for short term romance, it also has an energy that is known to cause marital difficulties, so newlyweds or couples should avoid using this room for this month unless you like living dangerously as it can be good for couples but more likely to spark relations with outside parties, personally I would avoid it as a married person.
I know it is easier said than done but moving out of a room that has temporary inauspicious Ch’i is worth it. This is so especially with health issues provided you could afford the space and rooms. If you cannot, do not fret. The effect can be minimised by relocating the bed or study/work/office table to an auspicious sector (follow example above) of the room or placing cures as recommended on this site. As I have said before, this is a monthly influence and so it will pass.
Take a look at your 2012 annual animal predictions and also the 2012 flying star (Xuan Kong) as you will need to follow the advice carefully to ensure a trouble free year in 2012. You can place your annual cures and enhancers at any time of the year after February 4th.
