In the world of metaphysics, the start of the new year comes on 4th of February every year.
On the day of 4th February, the year will transit into the next zodiac animal and a new year of luck cycle will officially begin.
So how can you boost your luck in the new year of the Earth Dog?
The Wisdom of Life And Destiny
The general wisdom of life is that your destiny depends on 3 aspects: Heaven, Earth, and Man.
It means that in your destiny, 1/3 is dependent on heaven, which is your life chart at the time of your birth. Your life chart is your destiny that heaven has plotted for you to become in the future till you die.
The other 1/3 is man, which is the actions you take in your life that determines the future outcome because of your action. Your destiny is also dependent on the actions you take. An example is that you are born smart, but if you don’t study at all, you won’t pass the exams!
The final 1/3 is Earth, which is the Feng Shui that is surrounding you (where you live in) or influencing you from the past, such as burial site of your ancestors.
What Is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is part of a science called Metaphysics which originated from China and has been around for many years. It has been studied and used by emperors, astrologers, scholars, wise men and even military strategists.
You may hear about some families are always born rich or always have good careers. That could be because their ancestors were buried in an auspicious location and the luck is passed down to the generations after. Or some people experienced a change of luck because they moved to another house or country.
This change of luck is due to the change of environment or Feng Shui. And now with the advance of technology, you can use the knowledge of Feng Shui to improve or change your life.
How to do basic Feng Shui
Fengshui is all about location and direction. If you have no idea how to do Feng Shui, don’t worry! All you need is a compass, a floor plan (if you own the house) and some common sense.
1. Take Your House Floor Plan
You need to have your house’s floor plan to do Feng Shui.
Feng Shui can be quite specific, so you need to have some reliable data to do a good Feng Shui.
In Feng Shui, it’s all about location and direction.
2. Overlay a 9 Square Grid Over Your Floor Plan
Overlay a 9 square grid over the plan.
You can scan your house’s floor plan and use a powerpoint to overlay an excel grid.
In normal Feng Shui called the Flying Stars method, the luck is divided into 9 different sectors.
Each sector represents a luck star that is residing in it. So if you have a property, you can take your floor plan and divide it into 9 squares equally, starting with the centre of your home. You can further subdivide the sector again for a room in a house.
3. Look at the Numbers In The Grids For The Year
Then there will be a direction for the grid, just like a compass. And then the stars living inside the sector is represented by a number.
Every year the numbers will change due to the movement of the stars.
Let’s take a look at the grid for the year 2018.
4. Align The Floor Plan According To The Compass
Now you got the numbers, take your compass, stand at the centre of your home and determine the direction of your house.
So after aligning you should know where your house is facing.
5. Look What Sectors Are Good Or Bad
Let’s see what sectors you should be using!
Using the sector meaning, you are spending most of your activity in it. Let’s take a look at the sectors!
The Bad Sectors To Avoid
Not all sectors are considered lucky.
There are bad sectors that you want to avoid for the whole year.
Don’t do any renovation or knocking on the walls such as hammering a nail into the wall that sector.
Just avoid living or using that sector which is the best.
If you are sleeping/ or doing most of your work in that sector, then don’t have to be worried, your room can be subdivided with the same grid and choose another place in the room to sleep in or work in.
East (Star 7 – Robbery Star)
This year the East is a bad sector as it will invoke many conflicts and emotions for the person who sleeps and stay in that sector.

This is the most inauspicious sector for the year as it contains the most unluckiest star – The Five Yellow Star.

You are making it worse.
