|GENERAL OUTLOOK: The Year of the Water Snake brings many opportunities for businesses and careers to flourish and manifest into greatness! There is also great potential for wedding bells and romantic episodes so read on! 2013 is a particularly special year, because the Flying Stars return into their original abodes, forming the numerology pattern of the original Lo Shu Square.
This magic formation occurs only once every nine years, representing both the end as well as the beginning of one full cycle of a feng shui micro-period. Interestingly this phenomenon marks a new beginning in terms of luck energies, and it coincides with the end of the MAYAN Calendar, dated 22 December 2012 (which occurred within last year's feng shui chart).
WHAT 2013's FENG SHUI CHART REVEALS
Here is the new feng shui chart for 2013 which takes effect on 4th February 2013. Study the Flying Star Chart carefully and you will note that every row (horizontal, vertical and diagonal) adds up to the number 15. Upon further examination you will also realise that when you add up the numbers that sit across opposite ends, they arrive at the magic SUM OF TEN. This special pattern is extremely auspicious – a combination that brings a unique revelation about the year.
THIS IS A YEAR WHERE ZODIAC ENEMIES CAN PARTNER TOGETHER TO CREATE FRUITFUL RESULTS! In 2013, the auspicious interactions between the numbers suggest that friendships will become more important than ever before. It will be the creation and nurturing of alliances that manifest good fortune! So this year, make it your resolution to be more sociable, to renew bonds with old friends, and spend time developing friendships with others and networking with your colleagues. You will be amazed at how this can yield positive changes in your happiness, your well-being as well as propel your career and invite greater prosperity!
GET TO KNOW THE CHART…
In every year it is vital to familiarise oneself with the annual feng shui chart, which provides the geomantic map to forecasting the luck prospects of all eight direction houses and 12 animal signs. Lucky stars that vibrate with good energy should be enhanced to magnify their goodness. Negative stars should be subdued to disarm the extent of damage they can cause. There are several ways that any "star" affects you. Stars exert their influence strongest when they visit …
a) Your entrance (annually and monthly)
b) Your bedroom or living room
c) Your animal palace (e.g. Rat's palace is North)
d) Your Trigram palace (e.g. Matriarch is Southwest)
|SUBDUING THE NEGATIVE STARS
As a defensive strategy, the first step is to identify all the bad stars that trigger misfortune and then disarm them using elemental and symbolic cures. Remember that in 2013 the stars return to their original Lo Shu positions, and thus all positive stars vibrate more strongly this year, and similarly, the negative stars also take on more power!
|1) The Five Yellow in the Center
The Five Yellow is the most dangerous star of all the negative stars, and in 2013 it moves into the CENTER, bringing danger to everybody in the household. When the Five Yellow vibrates, it brings reversal of fortune, cash flow difficulties, accidents and even severe illness.
Animal Signs affected: Everyone is affected whenever this fateful star flies into the center of the grid, and thus our advice is everyone to carry the Pagoda and the Camel Amulet at all times throughout the year to stay safe from the Five Yellow. Beware when the monthly 5 enters the center of the grid.
To Subdue this Star: This star affects every household , all 12 signs and every member of the family! Thus subduing it this year is paramount to ensuring a smoother year ahead! Place the 5 Element Pagoda in the center of your living room and dining room to lock up this malevolent star. To help stabilize your financials and protect your wealth from depleting, place a Pair of Camels next to the 5 Element Pagoda.
|2) The Illness Star 2 in the Southwest
The Illness Star 2 flies to the Southwest, affecting the Mother of the family. The health of all elderly women and mothers will be weakened this year, and there is real danger of terminal illness or accidents befalling senior ladies born in the years of the Monkey or Sheep.
Animal Signs affected: Monkey & Sheep. All mothers and elderly ladies are vulnerable. Pregnant, sickly and elderly should move to another room for this year.
To Subdue this Star: Display the Namgyalma Plaque high in your living room to improve health. Place a Anrensui Wu Lou or Wu Lou with crane and bamboo in the Southwest of your home. Those born in the Year of the Sheep or Monkey should wear the Medicine Buddha Watch or the Medicine Buddha Medallion throughout the year to keep illness at bay.
|3) The Quarrelsome Star 3 in the East
This argumentative star flies to the EAST bringing litigation, quarrels, misunderstandings and trouble with the authorities. The Eldest Son is adversely affected by this star so expect your eldest son to be more temperamental this year.
Animal Signs affected: The Rabbit is highly afflicted this year. In addition to this hostile star the Rabbit has to survive the Three Killings and the Natural Disaster star which flies into the East. The Rabbit must wear the Kalachakra pendant throughout the year to avert severe obstacles. Place the Ksitigharbha with Three Celestial Guardians to subdue the Three Killings and keep the Natural Disaster star under control.
To Subdue this Star: Place the Flaming Magic Wheel with sword or 3 Legged Bird with Sun here. The Rabbit should carry the Flaming Wheel Key Chain or the Peace and Harmony Amulet throughout the year. If this is your entrance, keep the lights on throughout the year and remove water and plants from the area.

Danger from metal arms is indicated for those whose bedrooms or entrances face West or located in the West sector.
Animal Signs affected: The Rooster is badly afflicted by this star and should carry the Night Safety Amulet or the HUM Anti-Robbery Amulet throughout the year. For added security, move your Anti-Burglary Plaque (which you hung in the Northwest last year) to the West this year. Remove wind-chimes and crystals from the West.
