I will not use the traditional Chinese names for the stars/feng shui energies, such as the Three Killings, Violent Star or Illness Star, as this may trigger some fear based thinking, which is always best to avoid.
Be sure to also read the auspicious feng shui energies update for 2013.
Below are the feng shui bagua areas of your home or business space that will house inauspicious feng shui energies in 2013.
CENTER feng shui area of your space is housing the most challenging star energy (#5) in 2013. It is best to keep the Center feng shui area of your home as quiet as possible this year and avoid any renovations or building work. To weaken the effects of negative energies in the Center area, place metal feng shui cures there, such as six Chinese coins, for example.
It is also advisable to use feng shui metal elements colors, such as white or gray, as well as the round shape - the shape of metal element - in your feng shui decorating efforts for Center in 2013. Do your best to completely avoid fire feng shui element decor items in your Center area in 2013; you need to do your best to weaken the earth energy and not strengthen it.
SOUTHWEST feng shui area also needs calm in 2013. Metal element items are the suggested cure to balance the feng shui of the Southwest area in 2013. It is wise to avoid the fire feng shui element as in colors (red, purple, pink, orange, and yellow); shapes (triangular); or actual fire items (candles).
For best results, work with the metal feng shui element colors, shapes and cures. The recommendations for balancing the feng shui of the Southwest area in 2013 are similar to those for the Center feng shui area.
Protective feng shui cures such as the Medicine Buddha, Dzi beads or Wu Lou are recommended.
WEST feng shui area needs help in 2013 in order to manage present energies. Water element is very good here, be it in colors, images, shapes or actual element, like a water feature.
Limit earth and fire feng shui elements in the West area in 2013. Basically, minimum activity and maximum water items (as much as reasonably possible) should keep under control the energies that challenge the West feng shui area in 2013.
From traditional feng shui cures, the energy of the elephant or rhinoceros is considered helpful here.
EAST feng shui area also needs your attention in 2013. A strong fire element in the East feng shui area should help neutralize the negative energies present here in 2013. Do not have a strong water feng shui element decor item, such as a big mirror, for example, in the East area; also avoid Wood decor elements and cures.
An abundance of fire element energy - in colours (red, purple, orange), shapes (triangular), images of fire as well as actual items (candles) - should keep things in check in this area. A strong light source is good. Avoid metal chimes or any metal moving objects. Avoid disturbing this area of your home or garden, best not to plan any major renovations or any other house changes in 2013 in the East.
Fire element crystals, such as carnelian, amethyst or jasper in spherical/polished shape can be a good feng shui cure for East area in 2013.
This is about it for the 2013 feng shui update on challenging energies. Do not forget to read the update on the auspicious feng shui energies in 2013.
Best to you and your loved ones in 2013!
