The chart shown below reveals how the nine numbers of the original Lo Shu square are laid out in the different sectors of the home for the year of the Ox 2021. This is probably the best way to understand the feng shui pattern of the year, as it shows how energy congregates within any built-up structure. The nine numbers laid out as shown should be superimposed onto the layout plans of homes and offices in order to understand the luck of sectors, corners and rooms in the home or ofﬁce. Every level of the home is affected by the chart, so it is necessary to superimpose the chart on every ﬂoor level of your home or office.
Each of the nine numbers carries energy which can be auspicious or unlucky. The numbers have an intrinsic meaning which reﬂects luck patterns congregating in each of the different compass sectors of the home. Feng shui practitioners are familiar with all the afflictive and auspicious natures of the nine numbers; and lineage texts on feng shui offer speciﬁc ways of subduing the bad numbers and enhancing the lucky numbers. This is basically how the feng shui of homes are updated and improved each year. It is a method that has not failed, so each year, the updating procedures to ensure feng shui continues to be good requires the chart of the year to be analysed and acted upon.
Do use a reliable compass to accurately determine the eight compass directions in your home or office so that you can see clearly where the stars are located in your property. Once the locations have been determined, you may place proper cures and enhancers at specific areas. It is strongly advisable to prioritize the cures for inauspicious stars to ensure that there are no distractions for the luck enhancers to provide good energies at its fullest potential.
LOCATIONS OF 2021 INAUSPICIOUS FENG SHUI FLYING STARS
Those familiar with feng shui afflictions know how awful the Yellow Star 5 (Wu Wang) can be. This is the star number which brings a whole series of bad news, illnesses, obstacles to success and all kinds of depressing feelings. It creates an aura of despondency and unhappiness and actually causes moods and attitudes to just go haywire.
It rarely surprises us when those affected by it start being more sensitive than usual to imagined slights, or who become extra prone to ﬁnding faults with others. In 2021, this affliction affects those whose bedrooms or whose main doors into their homes are situated on or facing the Southeast direction.
Do be very mindful of this affliction if you are a dragon or snake, or the first daughter. If you stay in a Southeast-located room, your energy gets weakened further. Move to other bedroom if possible or install Feng Shui cures. Display the Five Element Pagoda With Om Ah Hum (Large) or Golden Five Element Pagoda (6 inches) in the Southeast, one on each floor if you live in a multi-storey house. Carry the Five Element Pagoda Feng Shui Keychain with Om Ah Hum or Five Element Pagoda With Om Ah Hum Feng Shui Keychain, or wear a Bejeweled Five Element Pagoda Feng Shui Pendant (Gold).
The bad lucks caused by this particular star manifests fast and it is advisable for the installation of Feng Shui to be done as soon as possible, before February 4th.

In 2021, the Illness Star 2 ﬂies to the North, bringing the sickness afﬂiction to all those born in the years of the Rat, the middle son, and also to those whose bedrooms are placed in the North of their homes. And if the front door is located in the North sector, then the effect of this affliction affects everyone living within. Try NOT to sleep in a North located room, and if possible do not enter or leave the house (or office) via a North facing or North located door in 2021.
The Illness Star is an Earth element star and happily, its ﬂight into the North does not strengthen it (the illness star), unlike last year when the illness star in the South brought a great deal of sickness to many people. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to subdue this affliction as it is never pleasant getting sick or succumbing to the fever bug or the coughing bug or the flu bug. Worse, the illness star is a real threat to all those with weak Life Force or Chi Energy.
To counteract the Sickness Star, display the Healing Deer Carrying The Vase Of Longevity With Lingzhi, Brass Eight Immortals Feng Shui Wu Lou (s), Bejeweled Wish-Granting Medicine Buddha or Blue Liuli Medicine Buddha for Good Health in the North. Carry the Medicine Buddha Amulet For Good Health and Protection Keychain or Garuda Wu Lou Health Amulet Feng Shui Keychain.

The lucky number 6 Heavenly Star is in the center, bringing good fortune and blessings from the Heavens right to the center of the house, benefitting every household member. This Star is known for bringing helping hand from above when you need it most and also windfall luck, especially when it gets activated.
Having it in the center of the chart as the ruling number of the year will bring good news for the year and especially since it took over from the violent #7 of the past year.
But in 2021, the #6 in the center can be interpreted as blessings from the cosmic forces bringing a gentler kind of energy. As such, it is vital that the 6 in the center must be allowed to flow freely - its chi energy must not be restricted.
In any case, from a feng shui standpoint, the center of your home should not have a storeroom, or worse still, a toilet located here. If you have any kind of small room here, it would also mean that you are symbolically locking up this good luck star in 2021.
To ensure that the luck of #6 Divine Star is enhanced in 2021, place Earth or Metal objects here, as doing so is certain to strengthen the energy of 6, which is a Metal number. It is therefore very beneﬁcial to place 2021's Celestial Water Dragon (L), Six Feng Shui Citrine Crystal Balls or Feng Shui Crystal Ball with White Dzambala Tibetan Wealth God here in the center as Earth is the element of the center, and Earth produces Metal, hence strengthening both the sector as well as the number 6 at the same time.
Crystal is also one the best ways of activating Earth energy, and those of you who have studied Paht Chee reading will know that Earth chi brings many kinds of good fortune. Earth chi always stabilizes the energy of most homes.
