Feng Shui energies also change from year to year. Therefore, it is necessary to watch for the re-allocation of good and bad energies at the beginning of each year, so that we can take necessary precautions if some bad energy happens to arrive at important locations of our residence or offices. In the year of the Snake, the bad energy called “Five Yellow” – symbolizing obstacles and misfortune, arrives at the centre. It is recommended that one hangs a metal wind chime in the centre of the house to dissolve this bad energy. The worst months will be in February, August, and November 2013.  Another bad star number 2, symbolizing sickness, will arrive in the south west in 2013. The traditional method to dissolve this 2 is to hang a string of six metal coins in the affected area in the south west of the house The Grand Duke this year is in the South east, hence it is not favorable to “move earth” or make substantial construction work in this direction. It is also not recommended for one to sit with back against East as you will be sitting against the unfavorable energy called “Three Shars” or “Three Killings”.  The North West is the “Crash position” against the Grand Duke which is also not good to sit.   The bad star 3 is a star of conflict and robbery. This is present in the East of the house. It is necessary to put a piece of red paper in this position to minimize such bad influence. Also the bad star 7, representing scandals is in the west, the traditional solution for this bad star 7 is to place 3 piece of bamboo plant grown in clear glass vase of water in the west location.
