Basically, it is a way of keeping track of the movement of good and bad feng shui energies, called annual feng shui stars.

2014 NORTHWEST - Avoid Bad Luck:

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 2014 in the Southeast bagua area.
