2023 Feng shui Flying Stars arrangement is a quick and efficient beginner’s guide to arrange house or office for the year of the Rabbit according to annual flying stars position in 2023. I also include annual cures to annual affliction such as Tai Sui, Sui Po and Three Killings. What is more, there are information about real feng shui Bagua and its corresponding archetypes, so that one can have better understanding of corresponding feng shui enhancers and cures.
The year of 2023 is the year of Water Rabbit. Although the traditional celebration of Chinese New Year starts on January 22nd, 2023, the energy of 2023 is starting on February 4th, 2023, Li Chun (the start of spring). The annual flying stars will relocate once spring starts. To ensure a year of safety, health, abundance, and smooth sailing, one can stimulate the auspicious chi and suppress the ominous energy by re-arranging the feng shui enhancers and curers in the light of the new energy pattern in the house/office.
2023 Annual Afflictions: Tai Sui, Sui Po and Three-killings
Tai Sui (Grand Duke Jupiter) locates in the east region, house of zodiac Rabbit (75° – 105°). The popular practice is to display a Tai Sui amulet, or a Tai Sui Plaque, but you do not have to. The east region is a little complex this year because of both Tai Sui and flying star # 2 occupying this position. My suggestion is to display a brass Wu Lou and tied it with blue ribbon in this corner. This arrangement is a combination to regulate the negative energy of both Tai Sui, Sick Star # 2, and Three-killings.
Sui Po, the Year Breaker, will trespass the west region (255° – 285°). Display a White Ceramic Ram in the west region of your house to minimize the negative effect of the Sui Po. Avoid any new construction in both east and east areas (Keep these two areas calm).
The notorious Three Killings will affect most of north region (315 ° – 45°) in 2022. The trespass of Three-Killings in the north region will bring instability to corresponding house and family members. One should avoid reconstruction in the overall west regions. One can put a blue round rug and a White Ceramic Elephant in the west to minimize the ominous energy. This arrangement is special combination to exhaust the negative energy of Three-killings and activate the auspicious energy of flying star #6.
If you would like an in depth analysis on 2023 annual Tai Sui and Three-killings, I have multiple in-depth and detailed articles about annual Tai Sui for the year of Rabbit and two thorough articles that will cover everything you need to know about Tai Sui and Three-killings.

South is on the top; north in the bottom; east on the left and West on the right, which is the opposite of regular map. This chart tells you the basic meaning of each Flying star and its location in 2023.
2023 Feng Shui Flying Stars Annual Chat
Please note, I recommend the enhancers or cures with in-depth consideration. I often involve multiple schools’ practices and years of consulting experience to ensure it will work best and apply to all people. The items I recommend to you are often doing double duties as both energy decluttering and annual cure/enhancer. I provide options not only to people who prefer traditional feng shui cure, but also to people who would like something subtle without screaming to the world that this place is feng shuied.
Annual Cures and Enhancers for each sector:
The propitious star #4 locates in the central region. Well known for its enlightening and creative energy, star #4 is extremely beneficial for any creative work and education. If you stuck in work and struggle to come out with creative idea and solution, this is the right types of energy to activate. Star #4 is also great star for romance.
Feng Shui Enhancers for the central region:
Generally, the star in the center is difficult to take effect. However, if there is a staircase or elevator in the central region, one can still activate this region by displaying 4 tubes of greenie to create an inspiring and creative vibe.
The better way I recommend is to involve both start #9 in the north region and star #1 in the southwest region to create auspicious flying star combos. To create this type of combo arrangements, one can display a live plant inside a green ceramic pot in the north and a golden round plate in the southwest. This combo will not only bring great relationship luck, but also induce the star #4’s positive energy that otherwise “locked” in the center, thus create a favorable vibe that is hugely beneficial for creativity, innovation, learning and education.
Keep the greenie (lucky bamboo or other kind) healthy and make sure change the once they die or wither.
Star #5, known as the notorious Five Yellow, locates in the northwest region of the house. Five Yellow belongs to earth element. It possesses the most unstable energy of entire flying star family and always brings about vicissitudes and accidents to life. The northwest region should be kept calm and avoiding any reconstruction and remodeling.
Northwest region is Qian Gua in original Bagua whilst Qian Gua represents father, male household, males over 45 years old, Chinese zodiac Dog or zodiac Pig. Consequently, these groups of people and people whose main doors locate in northwest will be blessed by auspicious energy of #6.
Feng Shui Cure for northwest sector:
One can hang 9-rod or 6-rod windchimes in the northwest region to exhaust the energy of Five Yellow.
Northwest region will also be affected by Three-killings in 2023, please avoid reconstructions in this area. I would also display a golden dragon and avoid putting any plant and ceramic items in this corner.
Five Yellow is an ominous star that is worthy of more attention and study. If you would like have a better understanding for Five Yellow and its best cures under different conditions, please check out this article “A Complete Guide to Flying Star 5 Yellow (Dos, Don’ts and the best cure)”

Feng Shui Enhancer and Cure for the southwest corner:
Flying start #1 is the water star that possesses promising energy for networking, career, finance, and creativity. Nonetheless, the water element of star #1 is not compatible with the earth element of southwest corner. In addition to the elemental conflict, southwest is also affected by Three-killings.
To regulate conflict between earth and water element and minimize the negative impact from Three-killings, one should avoid reconstruction this area and display a brass ox/cow in the southwest corner. The brass ox/cow will not only serve as the enhancer for star #1, but also as a key to unlock the potential energy of southwest corner.

Again, I recommend the enhancers or cures with in-depth consideration. I often involve multiple schools’ practices and years of consulting experience to ensure the items I listed here will work best and apply to all people. These items are often doing double duties as both energy decluttering, annual remedy for elemental conflicts and auspicious star enhancer. They are often not typical “feng shui items” one saw in a feng shui store, but rather everyday artwork or display that one would not feel awkward to have them in the house. However, these items or advice work very well for practical purpose and are more effective because they are chosen from solely feng shui perspective. These advices are actual tips one would get form an authentic experienced feng shui consultant. Some of the tips and practices were never revealed to public because of the rules and restriction from certain feng shui schools.
