The Year of the Dragon, 2012
In reference to the Chinese calendar the Chinese New Year begins on 4th February 2012 until 3rd February 2013. It should be clarified that in Feng Shui we work with the Hsia calendar or the Solar Calendar whilst Chinese New Year celebrations are based on the Lunar calendar which falls on the 23rd January for 2012.
Feng Shui energies change from year to year, therefore it is necessary to watch for the re-allocation of positive and negative energies at the beginning of each year, so that we can take necessary precautions when the negative energy happens to arrive at important locations of our home and/or office or affects our Four Pillars (Chinese Astrology).
For clients who have already received a full consultation I highly recommend an annual update as you must consider your home’s own Flying Star chart and the interaction between it and the annual stars.
If you are born in the year of the Dog or Dragon or have them anywhere in your Four Pillars chart it is best to wear a Rooster Pendant for the whole of 2012 as it will help to harmonise any challenges you may experience, as you may find 2012 more challenging than previous years.People born in the year of the Dog will anticipate more traveling, or movements such as changing jobs or moving house.
For people who are born in the year of the Rooster, the Dragon year will bring “Flower of Romance” so one can anticipate a more sociable year with more opportunity to develop friendship with the opposite sex… People born in the year of the Tiger or Dog will be into year of “Travelling Horse” and the Dragon year will trigger more travelling and movement.
Generally speaking the animals combining with the Dragon year are the Monkey, the Rat, and the Rooster and these animals are in a year of harmony.
Annual Flying Stars for 2012
The two most important and challenging energies to be aware of and remedy are the very challenging 5 yellow, symbolizing obstacles and misfortune located in the South East and the challenging sickness energy of the 2 in the North. The energy of the 5 is the most negative energy of all the flying stars and you will need to use a brass metal wind chime in the South East sector of the garden and brass pagoda in the South East sector of your home. Metal bells can also be used – hang them on a door or drawer that is used regularly to help suppress this negative energy and avoid the colour red in the South East area for 2012.
The number 2 flying star represents sickness and you will need a brass calabash and/or Six Chinese coins located in the North sector of the house for 2012. These are to aid in absorbing the negative sickness energy. Be extra careful if your main door is located in the South East or the North sector in 2012.
The Grand Duke this year is in the South East whilst the Three Killings is located in the South, hence it is not favourable to “move earth” or make substantial construction work in these sectors. It is also not recommended for one to sit with back against South as you will be sitting against the unfavourable energy””. If this is unavoidable place a Dragon Tortoise facing South as it is said to appease the Grand Duke. The Pi Xiu can also be used for this purpose.
The positive energies of the 8 and 9 are located in the West and the North East sectots so if your front door or bedroom is located here you may find good opportunities coming your way for 2012 to improve your wealth, health and/or relationships.
It is important to remember that the annual flying stars are best to use in conjunction with the period star and the flying star of the building.
