Chinese New Year will fall on January 28 this year, and this means people are already getting themselves and their homes ready to welcome the Year of the Fire Rooster. Preparing for the event doesn’t just entail wearing the right color and displaying the right food; for an auspicious home, following the principles of feng shui is in order.

Feng shui is the Chinese practice of being one with the environment, which is said to promote good luck. According to Philippine feng shui expert Hanz Cua, a home has what is called a “flying star feng shui,” which means that despite having it audited by a feng shui expert, its luck will continue to change every year. For instance, the direction of your bedroom may have been lucky last year, but it could not be as fortunate in 2017.

To ensure good luck in health, wealth, career, and happiness in 2017, adjust your home by following Cua’s pointers based on your Chinese Zodiac.


Year of the Rat
(1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008)

For those born in the Year of the Rat, the Fertility Star can be found in their chart. Rat couples who are looking to have a baby this year should sleep with their headboard pointed toward the north, says Cua.

Year of the Ox
(1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009)

This is the year of career promotion, and exam and competition luck for those born under the sign of the Ox. Displaying an abacus and a globe will help enhance luck in these categories. Also, students and those about to take the Bar exam should sit facing their feng shui wisdom direction when studying to increase their chances of doing better in school and their test. (One can learn their different feng shui directions by consulting a feng shui expert.)

Year of the Tiger
(1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010)

People born in the Year of the Tiger will have the Nobleman Star, which signifies the presence of people who will help them in times of need. Tigers are advised to sit facing their wealth direction to enhance this luck. It is also possible that Tigers will have a new dwelling within October or December 2017.

Year of the Rabbit
(1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011)

The Rabbit directly clashes with the Rooster, which means people born under the Year of the Rabbit will experience many problems, such as unexpected expenses, depression, family issues, and court cases. Also, Rabbits should seek the advice of a feng shui master for the best date to open a new business, change careers, or move/construct homes. On the other hand, Rabbits will enjoy the presence of the number 8 Wealth Luck Star, which will bring in money-related opportunity. To activate this, Cua advises displaying a 9-piece money frog inside the home.
