Annual Energies in the year of the Water Dragon
The year of the Water Dragon begins February 4, 2012 (the Solar/Hsia Calendar). However, the Chinese celebrate it on January 23rd (Lunar Calendar). In the north, the “sickness” energy visits; if you‟re prone to stomach, reproductive, digestive or any other issues in the mid-section of the body place metal there.
In the East, the “travelling and romance” energy visits which is good for romance, scholarly pursuits, writing and travelling. It can also indicate that you will be moving this year. If you have an East facing door, sleep to the East or your home faces the East this will be a good year to meet a new lover and is also good for getting a book published. This excellent, especially if you have your bedroom located in the East. If single, this will give you the opportunity to attract a mate into your life.
The “trouble maker” energy visits the Southeast, in the New Year. This is the worst known energy to visit and if activated indicates problems with money, relationships and health.
This energy is not strong in the Southeast and will only affect individuals with Southeast facing doors, homes or sleeping to the Southeast. It is only recommended that you place metal there if you‟re experiencing difficulties.
The West is visited by the “money” energy, which means it‟ll be a good year to make a lot of money if your home faces west, you have a west facing front door or you‟re sleeping to the west.
The “future money luck” energy visits the Northeast, indicating future wealth, such as non-liquid assets like investments in the stock market, 401 (k), IRA‟s and also indicates career/work related promotions. It also is indicative of celebrations, such as weddings.
The South is visited by more “money” energy which is good for cash flow, intellect and sexual energy. This energy will be especially good for steamy love affairs.
The Southwest is visited by the “fighting” energy and is quite strong this year. If activated this energy indicates gossiping, fighting, arguments and lawsuits. Place metal in these areas if you‟re experiencing these issues. If not, leave it alone as metal can weaken the prosperity energy.
The Northwest is visited by the “robber and the thief” energy. This indicates that homes that face the Northwest, or if you live in a home that has an exterior door that faces the Northwest or you are sleeping to the Northwest, it can indicate people not paying you money they owe you, business deals falling through at the last minute, people literally taking from you and health issues that are related to the breast, mouth and teeth. If the overall Feng Shui of your home is good, you will not be affected by this energy.
These energies can be activated by having a door located in these sectors, sleeping to these directions, bedrooms located in these sectors, the stove knobs activating these sectors known as the “fire mouth,” digging into the earth in these sectors, water features such as pools and fountains, and fire elements such as large televisions, fireplaces or outdoor kitchens.
Apart from annual energies that visit, there are also directions that are considered inauspicious for the year because of the evil influences that they can exert. It is best to not activate these sectors or directions in any way to avoid negative influences in your life, which would affect all aspects of health, wealth and relationships adversely. In 2012, the entire South sector of your home, inside and outside, and the first fifteen degrees of Southwest (202.6-217.5) and the last fifteen degrees of Southeast (142.6-157.5) should not be activated at all. This includes digging up the earth, construction, renovations, additions, water features, or anything that would disturb the ground, like sprinklers. These energies are known as Sam Sart or “three killings.”
Also, in 2012, the Northwest (292.6-307.5) is being visited by the Sui Po or “year breaker.” It is also advised to not engage in new construction of a building that sits on the Sui Po (the back of the building faces Northwest); it is not good to do any type of construction. The “trouble maker” energy is visiting the Southeast and it is best to leave the Southeast sector of your home, inside and outside, alone this year. The Southeast (112.6-127.5) should not be disturbed as well because the Tai Sui or the “grand duke” visits this sector. It is said that you can sit with your back to this energy but not face it. It is also advised that construction in a building that faces the Tai Sui is not done. This energy is inauspicious and can bring a lot of problems for the owners of the building and the people working on the building, such as injuries and lawsuits.
