Feng Shui & Activation 2019

On February 4th 2019, the Chinese Calendar changes to the Earth Pig (Ji Hai) Year.

How to use the areas in your house with the most auspicious Qi energy?

Qi energy is just like Wi-Fi waves, in some areas you get better broadband reception and connectivity than in some other areas. During the 20 year Period 8, from 2004 till 2024, you are called to spend more time in the areas where Stars 8, 9 and 1 as well as 4 and 6 are located, to enjoy the auspicious Qi there. Spend less or no time in the inauspicious sectors of your property.

For 2019, lay the next square diagram over your house and remember for orientation: in this graphic, the North is at the bottom, and the South is at the top. East is on the left side and West is on the right side.

In combination with your Ming Gua number, for instance East 3, it means, that you personally feel ‘at home’ in general in that area of your house.

Graphic: Red sectors are auspicious and grey sectors less auspicious.

Auspicious areas in 2019 (red)

The auspicious areas, we urge you to use frequently, like working or sleeping or staying there, as it will support your specific endeavours in that area. Even when you are not in the area, have a radio or TV to play or a moving clock, so the energies are moved around and get in flow and make optimal use of the qualities of this years’ stars!

Center: Star 8, is a wealth star, which is a cash flow star. This is your ultimate wealth area in 2019. Stay here a lot and preferably work in this area, or move around or pass this area frequently. Your reputation will be hugely improved and it will lead to new career opportunities, as well as wealth. The center star, tells us the overall topic or theme of 2019.

North West: Star 9, is the secondary wealth star for investments. As a secondary wealth star, it indicates that when residing a lot in this area, investments and probably a promotion will be within reach this year.

West: Star 1, represents noble people, wisdom, knowledge, connection. This area has a positive influence on wealth accumulation in 2019. Your broad band Wi-Fi connection for career advancement, academic pursuits, travel, social skills, relationships and even getting married, is at its best. Enjoy being in this area!

North: Star 4, is an academic or scholastic star to acquire knowledge, skills, and talents. This star also promotes romance. In this area, your creative activities will be boosted with energy. Use this room as a study or for other intellectual-, artistic- and creative pursuits. If you would like to write a book, use this area to start off your writing. With a main door in this area, your success to find prospects and relationships for love will take off.

East: Star 6 represents authority, power, influence and ability to take action/execute. For encouragement of your professional endeavours, to receive recognition and to influence others, this is the area to be in with your office desk. A sleeping room or main door would be beneficial as well.

Neutral area in 2019 (combo 10)

North East– Star 2 relates to sickness, illness, ailments and health-related problems. To relieve the inauspicious energies, place a lot of bronze, copper, iron or brass objects in this area. As this area is blessed with Combo 10 this year, the negative effects will be lessened in 2019 and we see this as a neutral area in 2019.

Inauspicious areas in 2019 (grey)

The inauspicious areas, we try to avoid and preferably not stay there at all, if possible. And we certainly do not dig in the earth, nail and/or renovate in those areas in 2019, especially not in the South West. Keep the Qi in these areas quiet and do not disturb it.

South WestStar 5 is known as 5 Yellow is the most dangerous and negative of all the nine stars and areas. It relates to serious setbacks and repercussions such as bankruptcy, misfortune, disasters, catastrophes and even diseases. Use metal, like a wind chime or a lot of metal, bronze, copper, iron or brass objects in this area to relieve these negative influences.

SouthStar 3 relates to misunderstandings, arguments, disputes, legal issues. To relieve most of the inauspicious energies, place a red object in this area, for instance a red carpet or lamp. The good thing is, that the South represents fire element, so the 3 star, meaning wood, will be ‘burned’ by the area and less negative.

South EastStar 7 relates to robbery, theft, slanderous remarks and people, injury and hazards caused by fire and sharp objects. Place a  red object in this area, for instance a red candle, a red carpet or a red lamp.

Other important areas to take into consideration: do not nail, dig or renovate in these areas in 2019! And for the following: please notice the difference between ‘area’ and ‘direction’.

  • South West 1, 2 and 3 (Yellow 5): from 202,5 – 247,5 degrees on your compass: do not nail, dig or renovate in this area in 2019! Keep this whole area as quiet as possible. If, for any reason your neighbour starts to dig in the area in 2019, use the ‘what if’ section below!
  • Monkey, Rooster and Dog (Three Killings): do not awaken the energies in these areas reaching from West 1 – West 3: 247,5 – 292,5 degrees on your compass. This means, do not nail, dig or renovate in this area in 2019! Keep this whole area as quiet as possible. The most effected is always the cardinal animal, in this case Rooster.
  • Snake (Year Breaker): do not disturb the area of the Snake, South East 3, between 142,5 – 157,5 degrees on your compass. Recommended is not to dig, nail and renovate in this sector and avoid loud music, parties etc. It is great to sit with your nose towards this direction: then you can keep an eye on the Year Breaker ;-)!
  • Pig (Grand Duke):  do not face the direction of the Pig between 322,5 – 337,5 degrees on your compass as this can bring unexpected arguments and unsuccessful actions, nothing goes smooth. And do not disturb this area by digging, nailing or renovating in 2019! Sit with your back in this direction, and the energy of the Grand Duke is with you!

What if?

What if your neighbour suddenly, by accident starts to dig or renovate in the South West area of your property? This will influence you and your household: unless you use activation dates for the Noble Stars as described after.

Here is how to do the Activation!

  • By making noise, use music, move furniture, open a window/door or nail in this area.
  • For nailing: find the middle of the indicated sector on your compass and take a nail and hammer and practice ‘acupuncture’ in this sector to activate the auspicious energies of the different stars (no nailing if someone is pregnant in the house).

Here are the Dates for your Activation

  • February 26, 2019 at 01.30 hrs (am) – South 2 (not for Rat)
  • March 12, 2019 at 06.30 hrs – South 2 (not for Tiger)

Dragon Virtue star in Horse sector South 2 (172,5 – 182,5 degrees): activation minimalists the inauspicious energies. It opens doors and shows you the path of success and opportunities as well as good messages, breaks through barriers and fixes problems. In general: a good omen star for signing contracts, build wealth, bring noble (helpful people), prepare for travel, festive occasions.

  • 17 April 2019 at 13.30 hrs – North East 3 (not for Tiger)
  • 3 May 2019 at 15.30 hrs – North East 3 (not for Horse)

Moon Star in Tiger sector North East 3 (52,5 – 67,5 degrees): activation brings new developments and prosperity your way: new ideas, new plans, new business. It generates  many opportunities in general and financial gain as well as luck in the investments, especially in the ownership or real estate. The start of a new business, professionalisms progress or career will succeed under the Moon Star. Being the Great Yin star, expect help from female employees, supervisors or bosses in your challenges or progress.

  • 22 June 2019 at 09.30 hrs – North 2 (not for Monkey)

Sun Star in Rat sector North 2 (352,5 – 7,5): activation presents the high nobility to life as one of the four noblemen stars. Opportunities arise, especially in terms of increasing wealth or expansion in business and career.. Sun Star means support and assistance of especially male mentors. And please do accept this help as it means the much needed teamwork and exchange of knowledge for all partners.

Fortune Virtue Star in Monkey sector: as this sector is part of the Five Yellow, we recommend not to activate this star in 2019.

If you have an animal, mentioned in the activation dates above,  in your personal BaZi chart, like Monkey, Tiger, Horse etc. you cannot activate on the those dates.

The good news is that you can ask someone else to do the activations in your house: like your husband, your daughter or son etc. Of course this person should not have the indicated animals in their chart.

    what if my bedroom is in southwest? is there a remedy for this? thank you

    • Henriette Driessens says:

      Hello Tricia….here is the remedy for Yellow 5 Star in the post: Use metal, like a wind chime or a lot of metal, bronze, copper, iron or brass objects in this area to relieve these negative influences. Sending Qi, Henriette

  5. CK says:

    Hi Henriette. I have been using water activation in SE3 for 2018. Where would be ideal for water activation in 2019, and will the water placement have to be made on certain dates only (example on any of the auspicious dates that you have provided)? With thanks for all your kind sharing.

    • Henriette Driessens says:

      Hello CK…water is tricky in some areas and I would only recommend if you are experienced in it… The best would be for the auspicious area’s to activate them by working, moving around, playing music etc in that area…even when you are not there. Like I wrote in my post…please read again…it is all about moving the energies and it does not always have to be water…try music and see what it does! Sending Qi, Henriette

      • CK says:

        Thank you, Henriette! I did certainly note your advice on activation and will do so 🙂 I just rather like the water activation process, for some reason it resonates strongly with me.

        Meanwhile I have another question: West appears to be an awesome direction for 2019 being Star 1, and has the qualities that I am looking to activate in particular (career, for one); and I am also born in the year of the Rooster. However, I also note that 3 Killings reside spanning the entire of W1 – W3, and hence it is best to keep the area both quiet, and free of renovation. So my question is: how do we activate West area, or should we not do that at all.

        Secondly, I understand that it is best to sit facing 3 Killings direction ie West in 2019: is it ok to sit in the West sector facing West? My study desk is currently located in SE facing NW and I am looking to re-locate it ((to avoid confronting Tai Sui) and West is almost the only option I have in terms of space available currently.

        Thank you!

      • Henriette Driessens says:

        Hello CK!

        There are many layers to Feng Shui and Bazi, its like an onion you unpeel gradually…here is a summary for you to take into consideration, whereas my approach in general is: work with what you have: avoid the negatives and make optimal use of the positives.

        Feng Shui
        – There are differences between direction and area. In an area, you can take on a certain direction. If both are auspicious, you have the best of worlds..
        – You can use the same Luo Shu graphic for your house as well as for a room.
        – For instance, for 2019: in a West room (career and wealth) you can sit/work in the North part to activate academic pursuits or romance, or in the North West for promotion and investments. Or use the Center for wealth and achievement.
        – Activation already takes place, when you use a room for work, sleep or sitting quietly, use a fan, a soft playing radio etc. That already moves the energies. No ‘extra’ activation needed.
        – Inauspicious areas or directions: we do not make LOUD MUSIC, we do not NAIL, we do not EXCAVATE, we do not RENOVATE and we do not use FREQUENTLY.
        – Auspicious area/room: avoid the inauspicious areas and directions within, and use and work with what you have available, unless you want to try and see what it does for you!
        – In addition in 2019: do not face the Grand Duke in Pig area (322,5 – 337,5 degrees), sit with your back to that area. So, in that case, you face the Snake which is wonderful: then you keep an eye on the Year breaker.

        BaZi/Feng Shui
        – About clashes: Rooster/Rabbit, Rat/Horse, Dog/Dragon, Monkey/Tiger, Ox/Goat or Pig/Snake are animals ‘clashing’(controlling).
        – This is mainly a clash of the elements that represent each animal. It also means: do I control, or am I being controlled by the event?
        – What is clash? New things in your life, depending on what position the animal is in your BaZi chart. You may control it or it happens to you.
        – New things mostly come with a mental pain of saying goodbye to the old. If you are not ready for that, you will experience it as a negative issue. If you are ready for new things…then go ahead and change!

        So, just take your house- and room plan, scratch out the areas and directions which are inauspicious, and use what is possible in terms of areas and directions.

        Happy Qi Planning, Henriette

    Any articles related to Best Energies for the month of January 2019?

    • Henriette Driessens says:

      Hello Kore…thanks for asking….stay tuned for the February 2019 article, coming soon….Sending Qi, Henriette

  7. Ronna says:

    Hi Henriette. You stated that: “The good news is that you can ask someone else to do the activations in your house: like your husband, your daughter or son etc. Of course this person should not have Dragon or Snake etc. in their chart.”…
    Why is the Dragon included to the list? Thanks.

    • Henriette Driessens says:

      Hello there Ronna…these are sample animals, which could be any of the twelve that could be in the header of the timing which says ‘not for animal x’. Let me know if its clear, sending Qi, Henriette

      • Ronna says:

        I see. What if the person had ‘Snake’ in their bazi chart (any of the four pillars) which clashes to the Earth Pig, is he/she already eliminated or should not participate for activation of these dates?

      • Henriette Driessens says:

        Hello there….thanks for your comments Ronna….I have changed the text, so hopefully it will be more clear now…Back to your question: these dates to activate are for ‘what if’ situations…what if my neighbour accidentally starts to dig, then we use these dates a prevent any harm to be done to our house and its inhabitants. So only focus on the dates and the animals that are mentioned in this case.

        Now, about the questions If you have a Snake in any of your BaZi pillars, then the Pig year will be a ‘clash’ year and bring something new into your life. This might come with a mental pain of saying goodbye to the old. Many times people do not like to say goodbye to the old and do not want change in their life. For them it will be a feeling of ‘clash’, but for those who open up to new things, it will be an ‘eye-opener’ so to say. If one is ready for something new in his/her life, they can use the opposite animal of their BaZi to ‘produce’ that clash.
        Depending in what pillar the Snake is, it will produce something new in i.e. social network (year), career, life path (month), personal or partner (day) or ideas, dreams, result in life (hour).

        Please check in the next weeks for the blogpost on the BaZi animals, where I will explain what is for the 2019 Snake as well!

        Sending Qi, Henriette

  8. Maria Herms says:

    Thank you Henriette!!! for your very generous explanation of what is coming in this New Year of the Pig. I wish you a Beautiful and Prosperous year full of happy moments!

    • Henriette Driessens says:

      Hello Maria….thank you for your wonderful wishes….and for you the same in Earth Pig Year 2019! Sending Qi, Henriette

  9. Suzanne says:

    Hello, what if someone has to do critical home repairs in Grand Duke area? Is there hope?

    • Henriette Driessens says:

      Hello there Suzanne….we use a special formula that calculates dates to start the repair project. The ‘what if’ options are, if things happen accidentally, like by your neighbour. If you already did start your project, please use the ‘what if’ options! Sending Qi, Henriette

    • Suzanne says:

      I have not but will likely be offered some dates in mid May. We need complete siding replacement, one window on the entire north and south facing sides of a town-home and the interior basement wall to repair some leaks and damage in the outside, maybe exacerbated after a a few big storms this past year. They are making the window now.

      • Henriette Driessens says:

        Hello Suzanne….yes, you can use the special Sun Formula for these kind of heavy renovations to relief any negatives. And there are ways to neutralise the Grand Duke and the Three Sha. Wishing you good luck and sending Qi, Henriette
