With a culture largely influenced by Chinese traditions, majority of Filipinos take to heart the advice of experts in feng shui—philosophical practices that aim to unify one with the environment for luck and prosperity. How can you bring positive chi into your home in the Year of the Earth Dog? Take some notes from feng shui master Hanz Cua, who shared his two cents about the lucky and unlucky directions of the home for 2018.

To determine which parts of your home are located in which direction, use a compass. While keeping the compass away from anything magnetic, stand in the center of your home facing the front of your home. The needle of the compass always points north so from this reference, you can divide your home into the nine sectors. Be sure to do this for each room in the home as well, and apply it also to your office to bring luck to your business.

There are also some people born under certain Chinese Zodiac signs, so find your birth year to find out if you are one of them:

The Lucky Directions

The southwest area of the house is the sector for unexpected wealth gain such as a lottery win, especially for those born in the Years of the Sheep and Monkey.  This area can be activated by placing six stones in it.

The south is this year’s love sector particularly for those born in the Year of the Horse, so sleeping with the headboard pointed at this direction is recommended for those looking for luck in love. At the same time, the south is also the wisdom sector, which students can take advantage of by facing this way while studying. The love and wisdom sector can be activated by putting bright lights, hanging up curtains, and placing rugs.

Residents, especially those born in the Years of the Dragon and Snake, will be lucky this year in terms of finances as the wealth and prosperity sector is in the southeast of the home. Placing a fortune plant in this area will help attract money.

At the center of the home is prosperity and good luck, which can be activated by turning on any lights placed here.

The northwest direction of the home has the victory and success sector, and those born in the Years of the Dog and Boar in particular will find luck here. Opportunity and victory can be activated by displaying a metal element here.

The Unlucky Directions

The north is seen as the most unlucky sector this year as the Five Yellow Misfortune star, a.k.a. the Wu Wang, is here. The Wu Wang brings about misfortune like career loss, relationship problems, illness, accident, or death. Keep from playing loud music or doing any activity here to avoid activating the five yellow misfortune star. To dampen the adverse effects, put five stones in a can, cover it, and place it here.

Activating the northeast section of the home could bring about litigation, misunderstanding, conflict, and court cases. Do not set up an office in this direction, and put a fire element or rugs here to subdue the misfortune in this area.

This year, the ease section will have the Violent Star, which can attract incidents like theft, robbery, cheating, and betrayal. If main door is at the east sector, put a water fountain, water pitcher, or glass of water next to it as a cure.

The Illness Star is in the west direction of the home this year, but you can dampen its effects by placing a glass of salt here.
