The Year of the Earth Dog ends January 21st. I highly recommend you read the Year of the Earth Pig Blog for the full scoop on how to prepare and what is forecasted for the coming year. From that the Full Moon January 21st to the New Moon February 5th you have 2 weeks to get your life in order; clean house, get a hair cut, pay bills, collect monies due, do repairs, and tie up loose ends. The month of January starts on the 6th.

#4 Star is in the North West where the annual 1 Star resides. The NW is a Metal influenced direction so the Woody nature of the 4 Star is greatly weakened here even with the Watery support of the 1 Star. Still, I think there is benefit to be found in this positive energy dancing around. There is creativity, artistry, romance, and successful studies emanating from your NW room.
CURE: Continue to use accents of BLUE but add a lush live plant here for this month.

#3 Star sits in the Center with the Annual 9 Star. The Center is an Earth element which weakens this already low energy cranky pants 3 Star. The Woody nature of this visitor feeds the positivity of the Fiery 9 Star. I woudl say that relationships may have some stumbles and grumbles but overall this should still be a vibrant energy to enjoy. CURE: Continue to feed the 9 Star with a pop of RED or PURPLE.

#2 Star is in the South East with the Annual 8 Star which adds another Earthy energy to compete with the Woody nature of the South East. Where we would want to feed the positive 8 it would only serve to fuel the sickness and negativity of the 2. So, please be careful in this room in January as bloating, stomach virus, cramping, and overall sickness could make this a most unfortunate place to spend any time. CURE: Healthy live plant to nourish the innate energy of the SE while tampering the poor energy of the visiting 2. If this is a bedroom please place a Wu Lou by the bedside. If this is main entrance then hang a Ba-Gua Mirror. KEEP THIS ROOM QUIET AND DARK

#1 Star washes over the Annual 7 Star in the East and this a good thing. The Watery 1 will weaken the 7 Star and nourish the innate energy of the East. CURE: Focus on pops of Blue, turquoise, deep purple, and black to weaken the negative 7 and support the positive 1.

#9 Star is in the South West with the Annual 6 Star. This is another flow of energies where the SW Earth is fueled by the Fire of the 9 Star visiting and nourishes the successful chi of the 6. This is a place for reaping the rewards of hard work and projects coming to completion. Enjoy this room and good fortune if this is an entrance. CURE: Just keep this room active and brightly lit.

#8 Star is in the North where the nasty Annual 5 Star wraps up its year of wrath. The Watery nature of the North competes with the Earthiness of the both the 5 and 8. So, despite the potential for wealth here, it is best to continue to keep this room dormant and dark with minimal use. NO BANGING, DIGGING, OR RENOVATIONS, AND NO FIRE CURE: Wu Lou by the bedside, Ba-Gua if a front door, and BLUE colors (not water), AVOID FIRE, in a Northern Kitchen cover burners on stove with cookie sheets

#7 Star is in the South with the Annual 4 Star which adds a combative quality as the Metal of the 7 fights with the Fire of the South and the Wood of the 4 Star. This sounds like a battle being waged. Duck and run for cover. Avoid having meetings, conferences, or conversations in this room for Jan. Stick to small talk. CURE: Healthy vibrant plants.

#6 Star Star sits in the North East with the cantankerous Annual 3 Star. Now the Metal 6 is nourished in this Earthy direction whereas the weak 3 Star is really suppressed here. There is wealth and success potential here for Jan. CURE: String of 6 coins hung from the door or window

#5 Star is in the W with the Annual 2 Star brings a devil’s brew for sure. THE WORST energy is cooking up with accidents, surgery, illness, grave misfortune. AVOID THIS ENTRANCE AND ROOM AT ALL COST. DO NOT DISTURB WITH BANGING, DIGGING, OR ANY RENOVATIONS.
CURE: Wu Lou health gourd by the desk or bed, a Ba-Gu Mirror on the front door and Fu Dogs too to guard the entrance. METAL and BLUE are the best color and material to tamper this negative swamp.
