It’s always helpful to keep current on the latest dimensions of feng shui each year. To do this for 2018, you need to take time studying and understanding the Flying Star Feng Shui Chart 2018 below. Feng shui afflictions in your work or living space will be revealed, and feng shui cures will be suggested. All the best remedies have been chosen for you here.
Also, the fortunate sectors of 2018 need to be magnified by placing luck enhancers around, according to what’s in the annual chart for the year. Great good fortune can happen and overall good luck can improve once auspicious sectors or stars are activated.
By keeping up to date on the year’s feng shui, it’s possible to protect against having fortunes reversed. Without protecting yourself, killing energies, misfortune, illness or betrayal are all able to attack you, especially during months that you are weakened in energy.
Even if someone is just curious about feng shui and its energies, it’s worth being aware of what could go wrong and how to ward it off, or what could go right with a bit of help.
Look at the Feng Shui 2018 Chart as a way to see the year’s energy patterns. When you notice sectors that are affected with negative energy numbers, see what can be done to guard against them. The same applies to finding lucky sectors of buildings and enhancing them.
Superimpose the Flying Star Chart onto your home or office space using the compass to locate either the negative affliction or the fortunate luck that matches various rooms or corners. Then, you can determine what feng shui boosters or remedies you need.

The North sector encounters misfortune from the #5 Star in 2018, threatening danger and chaos for those in that area. Those whose front door or the door most used, or whose bedroom, is found in the North could suffer distress from the #5 Yellow. This could be as severe as major losses in business or even a terminal illness. This destructive Five Yellow could spread to other areas in the home if not suppressed, so it would help to avoid serious health issues, accidents or loss in many forms. At times, even if you just face the #5 direction, misfortune can occur. It’s critical to place a feng shui cure in your room if it’s located in the North.
Try to deal with it before February 4, 2018. Any feng shui cures are best placed early in the year to prevent sudden afflictions in these areas. If your home faces North, protect it with a cure at the front entrance.
The year 2018 is not the time to dig or begin construction in the North, since negative luck could result. Any type of noise from drilling, knocking down walls or any other construction sounds could irritate the Five Yellow. The Rat is afflicted by the #5 since the North is their home location, and the middle son of any sign is at risk.
Because of the harm the #5 can create, those affected become depressed and difficult to be around. Feng shui remedies that are often used to subdue the harmful #5 are the Five Element Pagoda Talisman Keychain or 2018 Sun and Moon 5 Element Pagoda Keychain, which can be carried or worn for protection, and the placement of the 2018 Sun and Moon Five Element Feng Shui Pagoda, 7 inch Sun and Moon Five Element Pagoda or the Golden Five Element Pagoda (6 inches) in the afflicted area is often effective in the North.

Hidden danger or unexpected health issues afflict the West sector in 2018. If a bedroom or living room is in the West, carry or display strong feng shui cures and even think about sleeping in a different room this year to keep health problems at bay. Homes facing West should keep front door lights dimmed to tame illness energy, and adding a feng shui cure or painting your door white can help add protection.
If the front door faces West, it can affect anyone in the household, though the youngest daughter or the Rooster-born are at most risk.
A Garuda Bird for Protection Against Illness Star, Bejeweled Wish-Granting Medicine Buddha or the Goddess Kuan Yin with Garuda are Feng Shui cures to minimize the powerful illness energy. Carrying a Garuda Good Health Feng Shui Keychain or Garuda Wu Lou Keychain for Health Luck, or wearing a Medicine Buddha Pendant or Tibetan Longevity Dzi Bracelet is also advised. If the main door or living room is located in the West, this star can affect anyone within the home.
More Feng Shui cures for the #2 Illness star can be found here.
THE #3 HOSTILITY STAR - Resides in the NORTHEAST, Threatening Hostility or Possible Legal Issues
In 2018, the #3 Star creates arguments, misunderstandings, legal issues and other forms of hostility for those who work or live in the Northeast. When it’s at its worst, violence or a tragedy could be the result. A main feng shui way to combat the #3 is by using a Fire Element or anything that suggests fire. This could mean using bright lights or the color red, which can become a remedy when placed in the Northeast.
Since this vicious energy is so strong in 2018, calling on the Two-Sided Flaming Magic Wheel Plaque, Double or the is vital to tame quarrelsome energy or anger quickly, putting hostile energy on hold. To protect against aggression or friction, place this feng shui item in your living room’s Northeast sector or in the Northeast corner of your desk.
If a home faces Northeast, or if a main door or bedroom is in the sector, using a Golden Trident of Guru Rinpoche can help drive away hostility and the possibility of a legal issue or court battle. This affliction could otherwise arise out of nowhere and bring nasty legal results, so placing the cure early in the year is recommended. Those especially at risk in this sector are the Ox or Tiger, and the youngest son in a family. These people should carry a 2018 Red Eagle Keychain for Hostile Star 3 or Golden Trident of Guru Rinpoche Keychain at all times.
To help pacify the #3, keep the NE sector quiet, spend as little time there as possible, or even leave that sector alone. Removing water or wood energy from the NE sector is also advised. Hang the Golden Double Dorje Buddhist Tassels in your car.
The East sector experiences potential for danger in 2018. If your room is located in the East, move to another area to sleep this year. This #7 Star is intense now, and could bring aggression, political turmoil, or violence to the East, especially for the eldest son in a family. If your home faces or sits in the East, or if you spend quite a bit of time there, this negative energy is strongest. Betrayal or scams are real threats, so beware of trusting anyone completely. Pregnant women should be especially careful. Hospitalization or surgery could arise for any of the afflicted people or situations.
Water energy is a great help to damper the negative energy, when placed in the East. A Rhinoceros and Elephant in Natural Habitat or Blue Rhinoceros and Elephant with Water Urn placed in this sector helps protect against robbery. Displaying the Dragon Tortoise Totem with Rhino and Elephant or Anti Burglary Plaque can also offer mighty protection.
The Rabbit or a first son need to beware trusting someone fully now, and carrying an Anti Burglary Keychain 2018 or Anti-Burglary Amulet Keychain is strongly advised. When in your car, hang a Blue Liuli Elephant and Rhino Protection Hanging or Blue Sodalite Rhino and Elephant Protection Hanging to keep danger at bay in 2018.
If your main door is in the East, invest in better security such as stronger locks or alarm systems. Kitchens in the East can be dangerous so use care in working with sharp objects and make sure burners are watched while cooking and turned off when not in use.
LOCATIONS OF 2018 AUSPICIOUS FENG SHUI FLYING STARS
There is good news for those whose main entrance, living room, bedroom, bagua or animal palace faces in the directions listed below. The following sectors will be blessed by auspicious energy that should be encouraged to flourish through the use of feng shui items.
The Southeast sector is considered the most auspicious in 2018, due to the #8 Wealth Luck Star. The Pa Kua 8 Aspirations say the Southeast is also the wealth sector in a building. Prosperous luck rules the Southeast, by way of the Trigram Sun. These aspects represent wealth accumulation progress. The meaning of this doubly strong wealth-attracting energy is that the Southeast should be fully activated in 2018 to maximize benefits.
Many are especially blessed by the #8, including those whose home faces or sits in the Southeast, first daughters or the Dragon or Snake-born. Also positively affected are those who spend considerable time in a Southeast room or whose main entry door is in the Southeast. To these people, abundance, success and happiness are likely. Yang energy is required to magnify the #8 Star, meaning a need for light, noise and joyful sounds. Activity, laughter, sound and movement activate the good fortune and maximize the #8’s promises.
In this year of the Dog 2018, the #8 Prosperity Star can be magnified with feng shui products such as the Citrine Feng Shui Crystal Ball (L), Crystal Wishfulfilling Bonsai Tree with 9 Coins (Citrine) or the 2018's Eight Wealth Trees with Birds, placed in the Southeast. For luck that can occur anytime, consider the personal benefit of carrying a Bejeweled Wealth Trees with Birds Keychain or the 2018 Stupa of Eight Doors to Abundance Keychain, and wearing the beautiful 8 Eye Dzi Bead with Citrine Bracelet.
The Southwest sector receives heavenly blessings in 2018. Good fortune, power or leadership luck, and mentor luck are the result of this Flying Star. A home sitting in or facing the Southwest blesses residents with unexpected good fortune. Homes where the main entrance is in this sector enjoy the same luck.
Those whose bedroom is in the Southwest, those born in a Sheep or Monkey year, or the matriarch of a family, are especially fortunate. The Indirect Wealth Star provides blessings of good fortune or windfall luck to people trying their luck in casinos, the lottery, betting on football or horse racing, too. Financial benefits arrive from investments – those that are wise and those involving a slight risk
Keeping the most reward from this star can be encouraged by placing the specific Feng Shui Enhancer in the Southwest. This also helps attract support from someone such as a mentor. Any dragon or horse figurine helps draw the energy, and the Golden Deities Heaven Seal Crystal Prism or Gui Ren Plaque for Nobleman Luck is another feng shui item to display. To keep blessings with you, consider carrying the Heavenly Star Keychain or Gui Ren Noblemen Talisman for Success Keychain or wear the Jade Kwan Kung Pendant with Oriental Necklace.
The year 2018 brings the Victory Star and its benefits to the Northwest sector. This signals success and overcoming competition. Those who study or work in the Northwest sector reap rewards, as do those whose main door or bedroom in that sector. Success luck is strong if you’re in a position of leadership, if you were born in a Dog or Boar year, of if you’re the patriarch of a family.
The luck of the #1 Star is best called to action by displaying a Feng Shui Victory Banner for Success Luck, White Victory Horse for Success or a Power Elephant with Warrior and Magic Barrel in the Northwest. Those seeking a triumphant success at work or in career matters could also carry a Trinity of Victory Horses Keychain or Victory Power Elephant with Magic Barrel Keychain for added benefits in financial and success luck.
A powerful Warrior General statue (perhaps the Kwan Kung Statue) can also be used to enhance the #1 Victory Star, enabling you to thriumph over your competitors in business.
This sector suffered last year because of the #5 Misfortune Star, but 2018 elevates the South to happiness, romance and scholastic success because of the #4 Peach Blossom’s arrival. The number 4 is also called the Love Star, a special sign of luck for singles or unmarried people, while married people could suffer from the Star’s negative effects of infidelity. Carrying the Rooster with Fan and Amethyst Keychain is advised in this case. Singles who are often in a South sector room experience love luck and if they seek romance or marriage luck, the #4 should be activated.
Especially blessed are the Horse and a middle daughter in a family. To encourage the Romance Star, place a Pair of Mandarin Ducks in the South, and to keep love luck alive, carry the Bejeweled Double Happiness Keychain for Love Luck or Bejeweled Golden Double Happiness Keychain.
Creative people such as writers, artists, lecturers, designers, teachers or researchers should experience work luck and possible advancement or travel. The student who sleeps or studies in the South experiences exam luck and good fortune in being accepted at a preferred college or school. Awaken the Academic part of the #4 by carrying the 2018 Education and Scholastic Keychain or Feng Shui Scholastic Keychain for Education Luck and displaying the Pagoda or Globe in the South
The strength behind the #9 Future Prosperity Star benefits everyone in the Center. The potential for wealth building is promised in 2018. When the #9 resides in the CENTER, it is a year of new business, new beginnings and any number of happy events. More income or wealth luck is on the horizon, as is potential fame or recognition luck. Be creative and brave and you’ll receive rewards for your efforts. Because the #9 is a fiery star, it can become exhausted in the Center and Fire elements in this sector of buildings need to be given strength. Keep the area well lit, particularly if the dining area is there.
Multiples of the number 9 are suggested in 2018, to improve upon or magnify good fortune and give energy to the space. This means wearing nine charms or nine-eyed Dzi Beads in a bracelet to raise the good fortune aura. Displaying a Golden Nine Rings Dragon Sword, 9 Wealth Gods Sitting On A Ship or Feng Shui Nine Dragon Wall Plaque, placing 3 Gold Coins tied in Red Ribbon (Set of 3) in your office, or placing a Wealth Pot near your cash register are suggested to increase fortune.
To gain the most benefit from the #9, carry a Nine Ring Sword Keychain. Also recommended – displaying a Yang House Amulet Feng Shui Plaque, or placing the Nine Deities Invocation Feng Shui Plaque in the Center sector.
OTHER IMPORTANT AFFLICTIONS
In 2018, harm comes to the North sector from the Three Killings. Three types of negative luck are associated with this – loss of your reputation, loss of a loved one, or loss of wealth. Even the best prepared plans can be plagued with roadblocks and obstacles now, most often leading to a reversal in monetary status. Since the Three Killings is in the North in 2018, the biggest risk of danger is to the middle son in a family. However, anyone working or sleeping in the North can be adversely affected. It’s advised in 2018 to keep doors and windows in this sector closed in the afternoon hours, to help block the Three Killings energy. The three celestial protectors of the Chi Lin, the Fu Dog and the Pi Yao are highly effective feng shui cures for this year’s negativity. Display Feng Shui Three Divine Guardians or Three Celestial Guardians Plaque in North to counteract the Three Killings in 2018. Those who sleep or work in this sector, Rat-born or middle-son should carry a 3 Celestial Guardians with Implements Keychain for protection.
