There are so many questions about what matters the most in feng shui, and they’re all understandable. It seems like there’s one rule and then another takes that rule away. So, when it comes to personal feng shui, annual and monthly feng shui, afflictions, and form feng shui, how do you manage the feng shui priorities?
Let’s go through some of the most important questions.
Should I pay the most attention to my personal kua number feng shui or annual and monthly feng shui?
Always put the annual and month feng shui as your priority. It has the greatest influence because it is the most current and potent energy.
Personal feng shui is important, but the most powerful energy influencers matter most, and that’s monthly and annual energies, and good form feng shui.
What should I do when the annual and monthly remedies or enhancers conflict with each other?
This gets asked a lot on my annual feng shui Facebook group, so it’s an important one to understand.
And in actuality, they don’t conflict, they simply change.
For example, the southwest is hosting the annual 3 Jade argument star in the Year of the Ox, so having candles, red colors and bright lights is helpful to hold down the 3 Jade star and the red colors and candles will boost the earth energy of the southwest sector and bring more luck to the woman of the house.
However, when the 5 Yellow or 2 Black monthly stars come to visit, having candles and red colors could aggravate these two afflictions, so the recommendations change with the month rather than conflict with the year. It’s a simple, yet key point, to know.
In the months where these energies visit, you should take out the candles and red colors. If you buy my annual feng shui forecast and sign up for my monthly emails, you’ll always get the most current and updated information.
I’d like to activate the west direction this year to tap the wealth star that’s visiting this year. But west is my total loss direction according to my kua number. Is it better to just leave it alone?
Although it’s tempting to only favor your personal feng shui, it’s actually below the annual, monthly, and form feng shui. For instance, you’d never put your bed or desk in an awkward position because it favors one of your better directions. Follow good form feng shui by placing your desk or bed where you can see the door and have a solid wall behind you.
Plus, you always want to take an opportunity to activate every corner – especially if there’s an auspicious star visiting! We need all eight areas of our home to work just like we need the 8 major areas of our life to work well.
The only thing you don’t want to do is sit and face those directions if you can help it — that’s what matters the most
That means that even if an auspicious annual star visits a corner that’s not one of your success directions, it’s still important that you activate it because it will benefit your life!
My bed is against a wall that’s the direction of the Grand Duke Jupiter. Should I move my bed so that my head doesn’t point in that direction?
Always follow good form feng shui first, and that means having your bed on a solid wall where you can see the door easily and are in a command position in the room. This is the most important aspect because if you moved the bed and were not in the command position, you may bring on other problems. To offset the worry of the Grand Duke Jupiter, you can place a pi yao under your bed to face the wall and the direction of the Grand Duke Jupiter.
I want to do a complete renovation on my home, but it faces the direction of the 5 Yellow this year. Can I still do it or should I wait until next year?
This one hits home for me because that’s exactly what I did a couple of years ago. What’s important is that if you are doing a whole home renovation that you start in an area that’s not afflicted but is in one of the auspicious areas. We renovated our whole home and it turned out great and there were no problems at all.
However, if you are renovating an afflicted area, bear in mind that this could create problems. Try to begin in your renovation in a spot outside of the afflicted area if you can.
