Come 4th February 2022, the Chinese will usher in the solar New Year of the Water Tiger. 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 northeast of a property.

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 southeast of a property.

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

Star 9 brings creativity, happy events and joyous occasions. It occupies the south sector of a property.

Star 1 brings nobility, wisdom and recognition. It occupies the north sector.

Star 2 flies into the southwest sector of the house and bring illness.

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

Star 7 brings robbery and fraud. It flies into the west 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 2022, it is the Tiger which represents the Grand Duke Jupiter of the year. The Chinese calls it the Tai Sui of the year and it governs the northeast 3 Sector. To be precise, its compass direction is 52.6º to 67.5º.

The dreaded star 5 makes it appearance at the centre of a property 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 southwest 3 sector (232.6º to 247.5º) and mostly the north sector (337.6º to 22.5º) 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.
