deal of problems and it must be strongly dealt with each year.

a 5 rod 11 inches golden wind chime. There should also be tiny bells to dissolve
the bad energy of the 5 yellows. The locations of the 5 yellows is summarized in
The guideline on the 5 yellows is that you must not undertake any renovations where
it is located. Thus if you are planning to have a new kitchen and the Five yellows
is located in the kitchen. It is best to postpone the renovation until the following
year when the Five Yellows has flown into another grid. In the lunar year 2001 the
location of this harmful manifestation of bad energy is the south west. This also
means that the south-west is generally afflicted during the year. use a wind chime
to overcome it. Please not that if you are making massive renovations that involve
the entire house then the taboos on all three manifestations the Grand Duke, the
Three Killings and the Five Yellows no longer apply.
The Grand Duke Jupiter
If you are thinking of making renovations to your house that involve banging and
breaking down walls you should take note of the Grand Duke Jupiter. His place of
residence each year changes but wherever he is it is important that you should not
disturb him with loud banging and construction Upsetting the grand Duke brings bad
luck. Thus the first thing to take note of is to find out where he is located in
each lunar year.
There are specific guidelines on how one can improve one's Feng Shui if one is able
to garner the support and assistance of the Grand Duke. it is also vital that one
should never incur the wrath of the Grand Duke. To find out the Grand Duke's location
each year refer to the Table reproduced below.
Always remember that you must never confront the Grand Duke Jupiter. Thus in any
year always check where the Grand Duke is and in that year make sure you do not
sit facing that direction. Even if that is your best direction, you must not sit
in that direction in that year.
Remember never to sit in a position that requires you to directly confront the Grand
Duke. Thus in 2002 the Grand Duke is located in the South. This means you should
not sit in the north directly facing south. Even if you discover that south is your
best location based on the Directionology formula in the year 202 you simply cannot
use your best direction. If you directly confront the Grand Duke you will meet with
loss, failure and problems.
For your horse, knowing where the Grand Duke is located helps ensure that you do
not disturb him by having renovations or construction activity in this sector. Thus
in 2002 you must not undertake any renovation in the south sector of your house
since this will disturb the Grand Duke. You must postpone any planned renovations
to the following year. to break this rule is to invite misfortune. The Grand Duke
does not like being disturbed or touched in any way.
And never ever confront the Grand Duke in other ways. Old Chinese warlords always
avoided advancing towards the enemy if it meant moving in a direction that represented
the Grand Duke's location for that year. They always preferred to engage in battle
with the Grand Duke behind them rather than in front of them. Thus in 2002, if have
to attend an important meeting or negotiation do not sit facing the south instead
sit with the south directly behind you. This way the Grand Duke will be supporting
The Three Killings
In addition to the Grand Duke Jupiter, it is also necessary to take note of the
place of the Three Killings. This is a location of conflict with the Grand Duke
Jupiter and it is a location that should be avoided.
Take note of where its location is in each year. This is summarized in the Table.
You must never have the Three Killings behind you in any year. Thus in 2002 in the
year of the Horse, you must not sit with the direction north behind you. This means
you should not sit facing south. You may however face the Three Killings directly.
This means that in 2002 you can sit facing north confronting the Three Killings
will not hurt you but having it behind you will. In the year of the Sheep in 2003
the Three Killings is in the west so in the year, you must not sit with the west
behind you. It is far more advantageous to sit directly facing west thereby facing
the Three Killings head on.
When you are planning to do house repairs and renovations you must not do it in
sectors that house the Three Killings. Thus in 2002 this means you should not undertake
any renovations in the north sector of your house.
Please note that at al times you must follow both this and the guidelines on the
Grand Duke ... these are simply the precautions to take when undertaking renovations.
