In the concept of Feng Shui, the position of the Great Duke Jupiter brings the destructive qi. It is associated to the orientation of a premise determined using the Chinese Feng Shui Compass known as Luo which is marked with the 24 mountains. The location where the Tai Sui resides should best be kept quiet with no disturbance. Activities like renovation, ground breaking, earth digging, banging of door, repairing and nailing on the area must be avoided till the following year. If the energy field where Tai Sui is located is disturbed, misfortune may befall on the residence such as injuries, financial losses, business failure or sudden illnesses. The impact varies hinging on the pillar of destiny.
In the Year of Ox 2021, the Tai Sui is located at the Northeast sector. If the main entrance of a premise is located at this direction, even slamming the door while opening and closing would stir up negative energy. The directly position direction – Southwest has a name known as Sui Po 岁破. This direction should be treated with equal care. Practice caution and select a date to commence renovation, nailing or drilling if the house or site is affected by the sensitive directions.
