I keep receiving emails for help with remodeling precautions for this year and next year. Instead of answering individual emails, I post the info here.

Ji-chou ox year is 4 months from now. But it will be helpful to know the “forbidden locations” for construction ahead of time, so you can do it in 2008 instead of in 2009. Besides, areas that are “forbidden” this year are likely be “open” for constructions next year, so you can delay your remodeling project till next year.

Here are a recap of “forbidden zones” for 2008 Wu-zi year (ends at February 4, 2009):
==================================
1. 5-yellow disaster star will be in the south. Sui-Po or “year breaker” will also be in the south or wu-mountain.
— avoid digging or construction; avoid movements

2. Grand Duke or Tai Sui, the “ruler” of the year will be in zi mountain or in the North.— avoid digging or construction; you can sit on GD location but not facing it.

3. San Sha or 3-killings will be in the South (si, wu, ding mountains)
— definitely avoid movement or digging here, Sui-po year breaker and 5-yellow disaster star are also in this sector!

4. “5-tiger sha” is in Wu, ding (South) and Wei(SW-S) mountains, the most vicious sha that attributes to multiple deaths and serious injuries or sickness.
— definitely no digging or even putting heavy object on this area. This is the major reason that South side is the worst area to monkey around this year!. If you plan to do remodeling here, FORGET IT! WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR! If you have already dug and ran into problems, what can you do? There is not much you can do but praying for forgiveness and do more charity work than usual.

5. The auspicious 8-star (wealth) will be in the east and 9-purple star in the SE. You may want some movements here.

People with horse and mouse animal signs and were born in the first, fifth and eleventh months of the lunar calendar should avoid attending funeral for the year.
============================END OF 2008

Ji-chou earth-ox year will begin at Feb. 5, 2009, the following are the precautions:

Ji-chou year is a strong yin-earth year as both Ji and Chou are yin earth. People whose favorable element is earth will have great luck this year, especially if earth is your wealth element. If you unfavorable element is earth, then you better lay low for the year.

Chou is one of the 3-penalties (3P) elements of wei-chou-xu, so if this annual luck and/or your 10-year luck or your native chart bring together all the 3P elements– you better pray only positive fame and not injuries/surgery to come. OR take my upcoming “Destiny Management” course on how to handle this situation.

The annual chart for 2009 is: (top is south, bottom is north)

8 4 6
7 9 2
3 5 1

A. 5-yellow star will be in the North. Sui-Po or year breaker will also be in the SW-S or Wei-mountain.
— avoid digging or construction; avoid movements

B. Grand Duke or Tai Sui, the “ruler” of the year will be in Chou mountain (NE-N).
— GD and 5-yellow disaster star are very close to each other! It is possible to dig on both unintentionally. Avoid digging or construction; you can sit on GD location but not facing it.

C. San Sha or 3-killings will be in the whole East sector (Jia, Mao and Yi mountains)
— definitely avoid movement or digging here

D. “5-tiger sha” is in Chen, Xun and Si mountains (SE region), the most vicious sha that attributes to multiple deaths and serious injuries and sickness.
— definitely no digging or even moving heavy object to this area. Chen mountain SE-E) overlap with one of the San Sha, making it the most dangerous sector to dig for this ox year.

E. The auspicious 8-star (wealth) will be in the SE, but part of the sector is Chen mountain and Si mountains (part of 5-tiger sha)! So if may want to put your enhancements ONLY in Xun mountain (SE)! If you are not sure, put NO movement there. The little wealth generated does not worth the risk!

The relative “safe” and prosperous sector for this year is NW with 1-white career star.

People with ox and ram animal signs and were born in the third, sixth and 12th months of the lunar calendar should avoid attending funeral for the ox year. Lunar month is about one month slower than the western calendar.

What can you do if you must do constructions in the forbidden zones? Hire a good Feng Shui master to do a auspicious date-selection and follow certain procedures. Event like this needs some “bleeding” (of money) or exchange of energy with the universe, in order to settle your karma debt.
