The monthly 4 energy brings romance, creativity and positive scholarly chi to the Northeast sector this month.   If studying for important exams, this is a good sector to use – especially if you sit facing towards a positive direction according to your Kua.  If you are an East Group person (ie Kua 1, 3, 4 or 9) then sit facing towards North, Southeast or South to tap into positive study energy.  If you are a West Group person, (ie Kua 2, 5, 6, 7 or 8) then West is the best direction for you to sit facing towards while working/studying.  Otherwise, the next best directions for you are Northwest, Southwest or Northeast.  Note: If you don’t know your personal Kua, then go the Kua Analysis section at, enter your birth details and your complimentary Kua Analysis will be emailed to you.

The West sector is filled with life-enhancing energy this month – a good location for conception – especially if the Natal Flying Star Chart of this sector in your home contains favourable mountain and water star energy supporting the 3+9 combination.  If sleeping or working in the West sector, you are likely to encounter opportunities for travel, promotion and/or tapping into an enhanced state of intelligent thinking this month.

The monthly 8 energy brings a welcome reprieve to the East sector, making this a really good month to declutter and space clear the East sector of your home, especially when using the sound of metal (from a singing bowl, clearing bell or harmonious piano music) to disperse residual negative chi that may have built up in this sector last month in particular.  The annual 5 Yellow and Tai Sui energies are both affecting the East sector this year (until 3rd Feb 2012) and they can trigger very negative misfortune energy if disturbed by noisy renovations, hammering, digging up the earth or cutting down trees in the East sector of your home, business or property.  Be respectful of these powerful earth energies and space clear with a positive, spiritual and calm frame of mind, making sure that you shower and exfoliate before going to bed after you have space cleared.

Add some earth element to the Southeast sector this month (via yellow, ochre, browns, natural earthy tones, stoneware, an earthen bowl filled with precious gems).  This will help calm the imbalance caused by the monthly 9 fire clashing with the annual 6 white energy.  If working or sleeping in the Southeast sector, you may be more prone to headaches brought on by stress – esp in relation to rebellious young males.

If sleeping or working in the Northwest sector, be extra health conscious with your diet, exercise routine and vitamin intake and keep a gourd near your bed or on your desk to help drain potential sickness energy from the monthly 2.

Be extra careful when driving and/or using sharp tools or knives in the North sector this month, and add some harmonising water element (via black or medium-dark blue colour) if sleeping or working in this sector.  It’s also a good idea to wear sensible footwear, esp if you have stairs in the North sector – injury to the legs or feet is more likely to occur in this sector this month.

The monthly 7 energy stirs up the emotions in the Southwest sector this month, with disagreements more likely to occur.  Add some water element (via black or medium-dark blue colour) to this sector to help calm the lines of communication.

The South sector is the most negative this month, with the 2+5 negative health and misfortune combination.  If working or sleeping in the South sector, ideally, this would be a good month to temporarily relocate to another sector of the home or business if practically possible.  Otherwise, make sure you have a brass gourd, predominantly metal element colours such as white, gold or silver and the sound of metal heard regularly in this sector (via harmonious piano music or ringing a singing bowl or clearing bell daily).

Remember, each compass sector begins in the centre of your home and business and extends out to the boundary lines of your property.  The easiest way to quickly locate the various compass sectors is to stand in the centre of your home with a compass and take note of which rooms are located in the following areas:

North Sector: 337.5 – 22.5 degrees

Northeast Sector: 22.5 – 67.5 degrees

East Sector: 67.5 – 112.5 degrees

Southeast Sector: 112.5 – 157.5 degrees

South Sector: 157.5 – 202.5 degrees

Southwest Sector: 202.5 – 247.5 degrees

West Sector: 247.5 – 292.5 degrees

Northwest Sector: 292.5 – 337.5 degrees
