Annual Afflictions for 2018

Annual Afflictions for 2018

Tai Sui (Grand Duke Jupiter), Wu Wang (Five Yellow), Sui Po (Year Breaker), San Sha (3 Killings)

The afflicted areas during the year of the Earth Dog Wu Xu 

Tai Sui太歲 Grand Duke Jupiter in Northwest 1

Do not disturb the Grand Duke Jupiter which resides in the Northwest 1 this year, at the risk of activating the negative energy of this star which causes bad luck, loss, illness and misfortune. So do not dig, cut or renovate in this sector. At work, make sure that this area is not occupied by your office, meeting or conference room… If it is impossible to change the layout, do not sit facing this direction and ensure to avoid being affected by its negative energy by making sure you sit with your back to that direction. So look to the Southeast 1 rather than to the Northwest 1 to get the support of the Tai Sui. This will allow you to strengthen yourself at your workplace and will help you to be more convincing in your professional negotiations.

Appease this affliction with the Tai Sui Plaque or a Pi Yao placed in the Northwest 1 sector. It is particularly recommended for people born in Dog, Dragon, Goat, Ox and Rooster years to carry the Tai Sui Amulet for protection.

Wu Wang 五黃 Five Yellow in the North

The North is the worst sector of the year as the 5 Yellow star resides there, bringing bad luck to the family, especially to the middle-aged sons. Keep this area as quiet as possible and place Metal here to control this affliction. You can also opt for a bell or a copper brass or iron bowl, to submit this negative energy. Postpone any renovation project in this sector to next year.

Sui Po 歲破 Year Breaker in the Southeast 1

Do not disturb the Sui Po also known as the “Wrath of the Grand Duke” in the Southeast 1 sector this year at the risk of extremely aggravating the bad luck brought by the Grand Duke. So avoid at all costs to renovate, to dig in that area or to activate it inadvertently with noise or light. Disrupting too much this sector could lead to serious consequences that may be much worse than those made by the Tai Sui!

San Sha 三煞 Three Killings in the North

Do not disturb the Three Killings occupying the North sector this year. So avoid any disruptive activity in this area (particularly renovations or soil digging) or you’ll run the risk of attracting serious problems both for the home, but also for its occupants: violence, accidents, diseases, prosecution and thefts may result in serious financial and reputation losses, and other health complications. Keep in mind the following two recommendations: first, if you want to move your desk this year, don’t sit with your back facing the North direction. Second, it is better to face that direction, especially if it’s one of your four personal favorable directions according to the Ba Zhai Feng Shui system. Specifically, face the North and not the South this year! It is mainly the Pig, Rat and Ox-born people who will feel the effects of the San Sha more.

Keep this area as quiet as possible and know that the Taoist masters advice the use of the Three Celestial Guardians to overturn the effects brought by this affliction.

Some more tips…

To avoid any mishaps that could result from activation of the sectors where the Grand Duke, the Three Killings or Sui Po reside, it is better not to renovate or dig in these areas. If you can not do otherwise, you should choose the right time to do so to reduce or offset the impact of these afflictions.

      Dear Cherry, thanks for your message. f you don’t like to use traditional cures, you should always make sure not to disturb the area with renovations or digging/construction works.

    Does this mean we are not allowed to sand and paint rooms located at the East, west, North West, North, and North East bagua areas of our home this year? Even if our home’s front door faces the SouthWest? Thanks

    1. Dear Chris,
      As shown in the picture, you shouldn’t renovate in the indicated directions : NW1, North and SE1. The other sectors are safe for renovation. What we mean with renovation is : no digging, nailing, bringing down a wall, such things. Painting is no problem at all 😉

        Thank you, Johann, for your promt response. I really appreciate it. So it is actually ok to paint in all areas of our homes then. That’s great! What about if I do some sanding on the walls before painting; if sanding makes noise, would that be bad?

        No nailing means no installation of new baseboards since it will require some nailing, right?

        What about screwing on the walls to install new curtain rod brackets? Would that be bad too?

        When you say no digging, is that only for construction digging or does that include digging in the garden when you plant?

        Thanks so much

      2. Hi Chris,
        you can do some sanding on the walls before painting; avoid nailing, screwing and digging (also in the garden in the indicated directions). Another tip: start your renovation work on a day you’re not in conflict with.
