Water 2023:
Outdoor water for 2023 remains best in EAST - pool, Jacuzzi or fountain - secondary choice is SW.

No water in NE until 2024.

Indoor water features - small fountain or aquarium?
South is optional due to #8 star visiting, or try SW.

It is allegedly better if an aquarium or fountain lives on the left side looking out of the front door (the tall green dragon) and not the right side looking out of the front door (the crouching white tiger). The choice is really up to you.

Fish tankFYI:
Yin water is still water (vase).
water is moving water (fountain, aquarium).

- Still water absorbs negative energy of inauspicious stars.
- Moving water increases energy of auspicious stars.

Kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms represent draining 'dirty' water, not generating 'healthy' water such as a fountain or aquarium.

Never place aquarium in kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, the center, or the South.

Never place moving water features (aquarium, water fountain) in Grand Duke's location - East in 2023

NEVER allow water to stagnate, indoors or out - keep fresh, clear and clean.

PlantTips for Feng Shui 2023:

1) Colors of the year? That is your personal choice.

Fire element is still absent, so red if you need inspiration, energy and warmth. Green if you desire growth and health. Pink for calmness and soft emotions. Grey, silver, gold for metal element of intelligence and creativity.

Earth colors are for grounding and focus. Blues represent different emotion depending on shade. Purples represent luxury and wisdom. Orange supports happiness and sexuality. Aqua is for healing a broken heart.

2) Salt water cures may be used in the East 2023 (bad earth #2 illness star) and the NW 2023 (bad earth misfortune #5 star) - these cures must not be disturbed or touched once set in place. They must be disposed of outside your property, not flushed down the toilet or sink. If you use just a bowl of salt, change it every month.

Optionally, a super clean bowl of undisturbed water may be used instead, but the water must be changed often, left undisturbed, and remain clean and clear. If any standing water becomes cloudy (vase of flowers), change it asap.

Fu Dogs

3) If your front door 2023 is located in the NE (#7 burglary star), place a pair of Fu Dogs there - on either side of the door on the outside - as protective guardians against negative energies.

Don't know why this works, but it does - Fu Dogs rock! Place Fu Dogs outside your front door and back door, patio doors included, any year regardless.

4) Anyone that has a dragon and phoenix statue or image, may go for placement in the South for 2023 with #8 flying star visiting.


1) If any section appears negative, re-evaluate - tone down, remove object, or add/change to other elements/colors. Water features and candles inparticular may cause disruption if in conflict with area energies or mistakenly misplaced.

2) If you know how, check the flying star birth chart of your home for conflict with annual visiting flying stars. Don't stress about this because in general, the annual visiting stars dictate the overall energy for the year.

FYI: Objects, Elements and Colors.

1) You absolutely DO NOT have to buy strange Asian objects to activate or remedy your home - simply use the elements/objects you already have.

However, having said that, there are five Asian objects we like which can be used every year - just remember that objects are as powerful as the energy you believe them to have!


The Five Element Metal Pagoda
- Protect against bad #5 earth star - NW 2023

A Blue Rhino and Blue Elephant
- Protect against #7 metal loss star - NE 2023

Six Rod Metal Outdoor Wind Chime
- Protect against #2 earth illness star and bad #5 earth star - East and NW in 2023
Can hang chimes indoors if not possible outdoors.

Metal Gourd (Wu Lou)
- Protect against #2 earth illness star - East 2023. 
If bedroom is in NW, West, SE or NE, place a gourd next to bed 2023.

Pi Yao
This is the Grand Dukes pet - place East 2023.
If you have two Pi Yao, place them together, or the second in the West facing East 2023.


You can also carry Pi Yao with you, or place in area you need help and protection, even in your car. Some people believe Pi Yao attracts luck with gambling and investments, and place lottery tickets underneath him. If you win, remember i told you ;)


1) Every year - which begins early February - cleanse your specific Feng Shui objects by washing/soaking them in cold, salt water, and then allow them to dry in the sun for a few hours. Then, place the objects in the appropriate area for the New Year Feng Shui energies. DO NOT use same objects from previous year energy without cleansing first.

2) Elements are stronger than colors - e.g. water is stronger than color blue, fire is stronger than color red, etc.

3) Be careful using fire and water elements - they are very powerful energies and if placed incorrectly will block your intentions, or create havoc! Substitute for color if need be.

4) For color energy, use door mat, rugs, carpets, throws, towels, curtains, sheers, cushions, bedding, candles, lampshades, etc.

5) No actual water in bedroom - including fountains, aquariums, water scenes, etc. - may cause weak relationships and infidelity. Sometimes you may need to use the water colors blue or black, and that is ok.

6) NO fire/candles in NW ever which destroys native metal and heavenly help.

7) NO water features ever - aquarium, fountain - wherever Grand Duke is visiting (East in 2023).


Five Element Energy Interaction:
How to neutralize or activate element energy.


Productive/Creative Energy Flow:
Water feeds Wood feeds Fire creates Earth creates Metal supports Water etc

Exhaust/Suppress hostile energy combinations:
Metal suppresses Earth extinguishes Fire depletes Wood exhausts Water calms Metal etc

Destructive/Hostile energy combinations:

Wood upsets Earth dams Water extinguishes Fire melts Metal destroys Wood etc

Tip: To negate hostile combinations, add the element between the two.

i.e. Water extinguishes fire, so add wood to bridge them (use image above).
