Your Feng Shui in 2017

Each year, energy shifts, and we know this to be true and we most often feel it personally. We have good years... we have not so good years, and we make the best of it right... Right. If we are working together, you will have your Annual Update with a more detailed online link for 2017. If we have yet to meet... this is a little gift for you 🙂


Below I have written to each area - briefly. If we have not met, I do not know your home, so this information is for awareness & sharing. When we work together on your home, only then will I advise activations, changes and possible cures - until we meet - enjoy the read!

#1 Central Palace

The Central Palace is the core of the home, so in some respects we can say that 2017 will be more harmonious for all... Ahh, I wish it were that simple though...  and yet, in some respects it is! Such energy can assist with communication, writing, research as well as creativity and a little Peach Blossom thrown in - that's code for love folks...! Understand that the core of the home is under a wise influence this year, so keep the central passages tidy & unobstructed, and you will reap such wise rewards. 

#2 Northwest

Aha, here is our sickness energy for the year - well actually she governs way more than that, but let's stick with the basics for now... Last year she was in the Central Palace and that referred to a more Global Sickness, whereas this year, she is a tad more focused, and that makes her more problematic.... If you are ill, low immune system, or depleted in some way, it is advised not to spend too much time in the Northwest part of your home. I like to have metallic objects (love Calabash!) and the sound of metal in this area, as it helps to pacify this energy.

#3 West

Hmmm.... this energy is a tad aggressive, quite pushy, and wants to get things done... his way! Only people who are competitive, and prepared to go that extra mile can benefit from this area, otherwise there will be a sense of competitors getting one over on you... This is also an argumentative area, so if you need to have that all important discussion, be prepared to do it somewhere else please! The West is also an afflicted area (see below) so an area to be cautious with in 2017.   

#4 Northeast

....Love is in the air... ahh... how sweet... Actually, the Northeast brings forth much more than love, this area can be used for academic advancement, study, creativity - basically any type of education. If this part of your home has existing good Feng Shui, then it's really going to be a good area this year! If this is a home office area, then focus is to be paid on the educational aspect of what you do. If this is your main door, then be aware you are likely to want to study more, buy more art, and find yourself paying attention to the artistic things in life this year, with a smidgen of romance thrown in!

#5 South

Um.. an area to be super careful with this year, as the energy approaching from the South is very dictatorial, very Empirical, and not one to follow orders... especially ours... If you are building an Empire, if you are heading up something big, you can use this, however... do be careful folks! I would like to see you have a chiming clock or similar sound in this area - failing that, play music, that will help appease the strength that is here. If your main door is in the South, it is advised to use another entry as much as possible. Now let's remember, in real life we do remain practical, so adjust accordingly ok, no-one expects you to turn your house upside down each year - simply be aware.

Disturbing the ground in the South can lead to unseen and hidden issues that will rise up and become problematic. Leave this area alone, and the 5 Yellow will do the same for you… Do not renovate this sector for 2017, as it will be a problem, in more ways than one...

#6 North

Career success, and noble people to assist is what arrives from the North this year, which is why you see a Dragon in the visual. 2017 is a great year to tap into this well my friends, and you can advance with the help of authoritative people! If your home office is here, and it has good existing Feng Shui, you are likely to progress in your career quite well, good for you! If your front door is in the North, you will see opportunities come forward, and you are likely to be recognised for your efforts. Who knows, maybe you'll get that gold star you've been eyeing up....!

#7 Southwest

Hmmm..... got a hammer ready... this energy is both destructive... and yet reconstructive at the same time... This is useful if you are breaking something down, and rebuilding it. There is a tendency to experience gossip, and a dose of backstabbing associated with this energy, so be aware of that, and always, always, take the high road! If you stoop down to engage the gossip, watch out, you'll be the one tripped up... For those of you re-doing something in business, as long as you are shaking things up, making changes, then this can work for you. Try to hold the peace, stand still with a "we've always done it that way"... yeah .. good luck with that!

#8 East

Show me the money! Yep, you heard me right: money! Wealth advances from the East in 2017, so please keep this area clean, open, in good working order, and use it lots. If this is not your home office, maybe you can make some of those important calls in this area, or work on your laptop to finalize documents. Be creative, and simply find ways to spend some time in the East of your home.   

Disturbing the ground in the East is not a good idea in 2017, as the 3 Killings (San Sha) and the Sui Po are here, which literally means "oh crapola!" You must leave this area alone, and the 3 Killings & Sui Po will do the same for you… Do not renovate this sector for 2017, as it will be a problem, in more ways than one... If you have to renovate, seek a professional's advice for positive start date selection. 

#9 Southeast

Aha, now we have something to work with for future wealth, career growth and new ventures - cool! Just like in the East, keep this area clean, tidy and use it, and plan for your future! The Southeast actually has more hidden aspects that are auspicious in 2017 (Qi Men Dun Jia) so it really has benefits this year... but Qi Men is a discussion for another day....

Afflicted Areas for 2017

West – W2

Tai Sui (Grand Duke) resides in You (Rooster)

Personal Representation: Anyone born year of the Rooster
Challenge: Accidents, unwanted mishaps, medical setbacks

Because the Rooster is the leader of 2017, this area holds power over the other 12 animals, and should not be disturbed. At work do not linger in the West area, and do not face it either, especially in meetings, even if this is one of your auspicious directions. Whenever possible, place the West to your back, so you may garner this powerful strength and utilize its support. Do not renovate this sector for 2017 though, you will not be able to divert the Tai Sui's wrath..!

East – E2

Sui Po (Year Breaker) resides in Mao (Rabbit)

Personal Representation: Anyone born year of the Rabbit
Challenge: Serious accidents, serious mishaps, serious medical setbacks

As the opposing force of the Tai Sui, I actually refer to this one as the 'twin' of the Tai Sui because you will have the wrath of the Grand Duke when annoyed. This is commonly referred to as the Year Breaker. As the quieter twin, this one can be overlooked, however its wrath is fierce, and each twin will always come to the aid of the other - often with a devastating effect. Do not renovate this sector for 2017: leave it alone, as it connects with the 3 Killings this year, so a plethora of trouble for sure.

East - All

San Sha (Three Killings)

Personal Representation: Anyone born year of the Rabbit
Challenge: Robberies, accidents, loss of wealth, persistent complications

With such a negative title, it is no surprise that the East is problematic for 2017. The biggest challenge is the San Sha ‘splits’ into three: Jie Sha (Robbery) Jai Sha (Calamity) and Sui Sha (Year Sha). Do not have San Sha (East) at your back: you must confront this negative Sha head on. Remember, 3’s a crowd, and you do not want these 3 energies activated in your homeDo not renovate this sector for 2017: leave it alone, as the Sui Po is here also!
