|Annual Afflictions: DO NOT DISTURB with loud sounds, drilling, construction, or deep digging. |
Tai Sui or Grand Duke EAST 82.5-97.5 is home to the annual Rabbit and garners supreme power.
San Sha or Three Killings WEST 232.5-307.5 – this sits directly opposite or opposing the East where the Rabbit resides. The people most impacted are those born on the Day or in the Year of the Monkey, Rooster or Dog. To have multiple of these Animals in your chart requires protection and specific cures to ensure your welfare is secures.
The Three Killings can bring financial set back, health issues, and career obstacles. Hardest hit homes are ones that face East with the mountain in the West. Or to have a bedroom or main room you spend time in be in the West.
Sui Po WEST 262.5-277.5 – Impacts just the Rooster as this is a direct hit as far as being directly opposite the Rabbit. AVOID ANY RENOVATIONS, LOUD NOISES, CONSTRUCTION, OR DEEP DIGGING in these afflicted directions of East and West.
Do Not face East, with the afflicted West at your back. This also is a caution to not drive into your day in an Easterly direction or to sleep with your head toward the East.
|CURES FOR THE 3 AFFLICTIONS: |
Grand Duke is in the East degrees 82.5-97.5 Keep this area of your home and property quiet with no deep digging, banging, construction, or renovation. If you have to have a disturbance happen, say a blessing and put up a 6 rod Metal wind chime to deflect the negative influences. I also like to put an angel or symbol of protection in the afflicted area. Close doors calmly and do not slam.
Cure: Gold Tai Sui Plaque/ Pi Yao Beasties facing into the afflicted direction, and if you have an office here, place 3 Immortals behind you.
Pi Yao facing into the East brings financial protection or use Qi Lin to protect your career. Point them into the 82.5-97.5 direction. If a main entrance, Fu Dogs should be placed on either side of the steps. Fu Dogs protect the family and relationships being more harmonious. If this is a bedroom or room you use a lot in your day, place a salt water cure to absorb any negative chi.

Sui Po in the West 262.5-277.5 Directly opposite the Grand Duke is the Year Breaker or Sui Po. The San Sha or Three Killings is also in the West. The Three afflictions are financial, career, and health. When disturbed any of these can be immediately impacted. Keep this area of your home and property quiet with no deep digging, banging, construction, or renovation. Close doors calmly and do not slam.
Home facing West or East will be the most impacted and the risk is greater for Rabbits, Monkeys, and Roosters.
CURE: Place a Brass Pagoda in a prominent area of this room to appease the Sui Po or a 3 Celestial Beasts Mirror.
|#1 Star of Wealth is in the South West – The SW is the place that most impacts the Sheep and Monkey people born on the day or in the year. The Earth of the South West competes with this Water Star. To mitigate, focus on the element of Metal. This is a beautiful energy to honor marriage/ partnerships and the mother this year. |
Best Colors: Add sparkle and glitz, gold and silver, Black and White with Gray. Images of mother are best here.

|#2 Sickness Star is in the East – This malevolent chi is Earth in nature and being in the strong Wood of the East helps to control the 2’s malevolent influence. The Clash of these two elements cannot be assuaged by the mitigator Fire for fear of feeding the Earthy 2, therefore, it is best to focus on nurturing and strengthening the Wood with Water. Keep this room dark and quiet with NO NOISE, no renovations or deep digging. |
Especially if you are born in the Day or Year of an afflicted Animal like Rabbit, Rooster, or Rat avoid this as a bedroom, office, or front entrance.

|6 Star of Success is in the West – The direction impacting all Rooster people.|
What a jackpot to have this money making energy at home in the West. Metal direction and a Metal Star asks that you feed and nourish this positive chi with Earth tones. The West sits opposite to the annual Animal of the Rabbit and is not only the placement of the Sui Po but also the Three Killings. So, enjoy this positive chi but you must adhere to keeping it undisturbed by loud sounds, renovations or deep digging outside.
Don’t put your back to the West but rather face it.

|7 Robbery Star is in the North East – Ox and Tiger people born on the day or in the year are impacted most by the Star of the Broken Soldier. The Earthiness of this direction is feeding the negative Metal 7. This chi promotes backstabbing, arguments that turn violent, injury with sharp objects that can also be surgery, bankruptcy, and business failing.
