Come 4th February 2017, the Chinese will usher in the solar New Year of the Fire Rooster. It heralds the arrival of Li Chun or spring in the Chinese solar calendar.

This is when the energy of the earthly stars will circulate in a property within a defined pattern according to Flying Stars Feng Shui which is a system of Chinese Metaphysics.
These stars fly to all the nine sectors of a property and bring luck, good and bad, to the occupants.

Star 8 brings financial and career success and it occupies the east sector.

Star 4 brings love, romance and relationship. It can also help you to do well in your literary pursuits, study and other academic endeavours. It occupies the northeast sector of the property.

Star 6 confers authority, influence and power. It occupies the north sector.

Star 9 brings creativity, happy events and joyous occasions. It occupies the southeast sector.

Star 1 brings nobility, wisdom and recognition. It occupies the centre of a property.

Star 2 flies into the northwest of the house and bring illness.

Star 3 brings arguments, disputes and legal problem. It flies into the west of a property.

Star 7 brings robbery and fraud. It flies into the southwest sector.

Apart from these stars, the year is also governed by the energy associated with one of the animal signs in the Chinese Zodiac. In 2017, it is the Rooster which represents the Grand Duke Jupiter of the year. The Chinese calls it the Tai Sui of the year and it governs the west Sector. To be precise, its compass direction is 262.6º to 277.5º.
The dreaded star 5 makes it appearance in the south sector this year. It can cause misfortune, accidents and ill health for occupants in this sector.

There are also the year’s afflictions in the form of the Year Breaker and Three Killings which govern the east sector (82.6º to 97.5º) and mostly the east sector (52.6º to 127.5º) respectively.

The negative effects of the above mentioned stars and afflictions are triggered by any physical disturbance such as renovation works in these sectors of the house. One should not undertake any renovation that involves knocking down the wall, digging the ground or any home improvement work in the above sectors to avoid bad luck.
