2021 Year of the Metal Ox

How GOOD does it feel to FINALLY be saying goodbye to 2020? An earth year is always a good balancing and stabilizing year, just what we need after the de-stabilizing year of the Rat. Slowly and steadily the Ox year will allow us to push forward on solid ground. Not a magic bullet, but certainly a move in the right direction giving the World time to get out of the mess of 2020.

2021 will be a 5 Year in Numerology

Flexibility is the key word as many changes may take place. People will also crave change in a 5 year, wanting to move house, change jobs, travel (when a vaccine is readily available). New opportunities will be prevalent. A very active, adventurous and upbeat energy.

Feng Shui for 2021

It’s important each year to tap into and enhance the positive annual feng shui energies, and weaken the challenging or negative annual feng shui energies, thereby balancing and harmonising the energy of your home and life. The two numbers which are the most problematic each year are 5 and 2, and must be remedied.

South – 1 Wisdom Star – Neutral

  • If your main door faces South, you can do well 2021 if you work hard and make wise decisions.  Place metal objects such as chinese coins or hang metal bells on your door handle.
  • If your bedroom is in the South section of your home, your relationships and particularly your health may be good if you look after both. Place metal objects such as chinese coins in your bedroom.

North – 2 Sickness Star – Very Challenging

  • If the main door to your home or business is facing North, you may be financially worse off in 2021. Chime a Tibetan tinsha or singing bowl once a week near your front door.
  • If your bedroom is located in the North section of your home, your relationships will be less harmonious and your health may suffer. Chime a Tibetan tinsha or singing bowl once a week in your bedroom to weaken this challenging energy.

South West – 3 Conflict Star – Challenging

  • If the main door to your home or business is facing South West, you may be financially worse off in 2021 with arguments, conflicts and legal issues causing problems. The Fire element weakens this challenging energy. Place red/purple/pink objects (pots, pictures, rugs, throws) near your front door.
  • If your bedroom is located in the South West section of your home, your relationships will be less harmonious and your health may be affected due to stress. Place red/purple/pink objects (pots, pictures, rugs, throws) in your bedroom to weaken this challenging energy.

East – 4 Romance Star – Neutral

  • If the main door to your business is facing East, you may find people have more interest in your products/services. If your home front door faces South West you may find you and other family members may have more romantic proposals. The 4 Romance Star also supports academic success and creativity. To support the energies, keep the entrance tidy and visually beautiful.
  • If your bedroom is located in the East section of your home, your health and relationships may improve if you keep the bedroom tidy and attractive. As romantic liaisons are stimulated, you could have problems with competition, particularly if the bedroom is messy and cluttered.

South East – 5 Misfortune Star – Very Challenging

  • If the front door of your home or business is facing South East, the Misfortune Star may negatively impact your life due to accidents, sickness and financial issues. Hang 6 Chinese coins at the entrance to your home or office this year. I also recommend placing metal statues, pots or wall art near the front door but don’t over clutter.
  • If your bedroom is located in the South East section of your home, your health and relationships may be very challenging this year.  Be careful of accidents and sickness – slow down, look after your health. The sound of metal neutralises the Misfortune Star, so I recommend a Tibetan Tingsha, Tibetan Bell, Singing Bowl or Brass Bells, which must be chimed once a week.  

Centre – 6 Power Star – Neutral

  • If your home, flat or business is located in the center of a block, power, fame and authority are stimulated. To bring out the positive energies of this star (good relations with authority such as your boss, police, councils etc.) you must keep this area tidy and visually beautiful. Remove all clutter. If this area is untidy and looks uninviting, you may stimulate problems with the boss and people in positions of power over you. Council issues and speeding/parking fines can increase.
  • If your bedroom is located in the center of your home, please ensure your bedroom is neat and visually attractive to bring out the positive qualities of the 6.

North West – 7 Gossip Star – Challenging

  • If the front door or your home of business is facing North West, your finances may deteriorate this year with an increase in fire, accidents and theft. The 7 is bad for business as it stimulates gossip and negative word of mouth advertising. Place 3 or 4 lucky bamboo in a vase at the entrance to help diminish the negative energy.
  • If your bedroom is located in the North West section of your home, your health and relationships may be worse in 2021. Ensure you have a fire alarm in the bedroom, check all smoke alarm batteries and turn off all electrical items at night including electric blankets.  A wood bedhead and base will help to diminish the negative energies located here.

West – 8 Fortune Star – Positive

  • Congratulations! If the front door of your home or business is facing West, your finances and/or business will improve this year.  Place a large red picture or rug at the entrance to your home or business. Make sure this entrance is used all the time this year as activity helps stimulate this fortunate energy.
  • If your bedroom is located in the West section of your home, your health and relationships will be good this year. Buy a lovely red rug, throw or picture and put it in your bedroom this year.

North East – 9 Success Star – Positive

  • Congratulations! If the front door of your home or business is facing North East, your finances and/or business will improve this year.  Place a large red picture or rug at the entrance to your home or business. Make sure this entrance is used all the time this year as activity helps stimulate this fortunate energy.
  • If your bedroom is located in the North East section of your home, your health and relationships will improve this year. Buy a lovely red rug, throw or picture and put it in your bedroom this year.

Annual time stars are far more accurate when analysed in conjunction with the unique feng shui chart of your home or building, which is based on the year your home, shop or office was built and the exact facing direction. Therefore, a comprehensive feng shui consultation is recommended to predict and improve your unique situation.
