In reference to the Chinese calendar the Chinese New Year begins on 4th February 2010 until 3rd February 2011. 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 14th February for 2010.

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 Monkey, Tiger or Snake or have them anywhere in your Four Pillars chart it is best to wear a Pig Pendant for the whole of 2010 as it will help to harmonise any challenges you may experience, as you may find 2010 more challenging than previous years.

For people who are born in the year of the Rabbit, the Tiger 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 Monkey, Rat and Dragon will be into year of “Travelling Horse” and the Tiger year will trigger more travelling and movement.

People born in yin metal day or yin metal year – years ending with 1, such as 1951, 1961, 1981, 1971 will meet nobleman in the year of tiger, this means they will encounter supportive people who brings them benefits and help.

Annual Flying Stars for 2010

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 West and the challenging sickness energy of the 2 in the North East. 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 West sector of the garden and metal bells in the South West sector of your home. 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 West area for 2010.

The number 2 flying star represents sickness and you will need a brass calabash and/or Six Chinese coinslocated in the North East sector of the house for 2010. These are to aid in absorbing the negative sickness energy. Be extra careful if your main door is located in the South West or the North East sector in 2010.

The Grand Duke this year is in the North East whilst the Three Killings is located in the North, 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 North as you will be sitting against the unfavourable energy””. If this is unavoidable place a Dragon Tortoise facing North 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 Centre and the North West sectots so if your front door or bedroom is located here you may find good opportunities coming your way for 2010 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 therefore it is recommended that you book a Feng Shui consultation to best determine your own situation.
