Feng Shui for the Home: Identify the Good and Bad Sectors of Your Space
Take note of the things that you need to avoid and invite prosperity into the home with these tips
Thinking of revamping the look of your house? For those who believe in Feng Shui, you can be guided by the Flying Stars Method.
To do this you would need a magnetic compass and your home’s floor plan. Stand at the center of your house and divide the space according to direction: south, southeast, southwest, east, northeast, northwest, north, and west, and center—that is, the middle square of your home.
Be on the lookout for: The Illness Star #2. To avoid activating this, make sure it is free from the fire element.
What you can do: Don’t use bright lights and don’t put anything that has the color red. As much as possible, avoid doing too many activities in this area. Counter these by placing metal elements such as brass, copper, bronze.

Be on the lookout for: The Violent Star #7. This is the aggressive star associated with violence and conflict.
What you can do: Place a water element in the area like a glass bowl with goldfish and fountain. You may also add protective animal symbols like the blue rhino, elephant with the trunk up, or a pair (male and female) of Fu dogs.

Be on the lookout for: The Lucky White Star #1. It brings good luck for those looking for a more successful and satisfying career.
What you can do: Invite luck regarding working abroad and overcome competition at work and business through this area. Activate the east sector with a water element such as a bowl or aquarium with nine fish (one black, eight gold or red fish), seashell, statue or painting of a sailing ship; and the wood element: fortune plant, wood materials like artwork, furniture or carvings.

Be on the lookout for: The Yellow Misfortune Star #5. This is the most problematic sector.
What you can do: Avoid activities here and don’t do any major renovations in the area. You may also avoid putting a television, telephone or gadgets that emit light or sound. Counter these with five stones inside a metal jar and metal objects made of copper, brass, and iron.

Be on the lookout for: The Auspicious Wealth Star #8. It is the number one wealth sector of the home.
What you can do: If your main door is located here, use it frequently to activate prosperity, success, strong financial return. You may also place metallic objects here but avoid putting potted plants or large earthenware objects.
