2021 Annual Affliction

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins 

Annual affliction stems from the same principle of San Yuan Xuan Kong Flying Star.

Every year, the different affliction or stars move to the different sectors in your home. It is important to be aware of these annual afflictions as they can cause you and your family harm and misfortunes.

In this article, we will be sharing the annual afflictions you should take note of in 2021. If you are planning to carry out construction, renovations or anything that will create lots of noise, it is important that you read this article to ensure you avoid problems the annual afflictions will bring.

According to the study of Imperial Feng Shui, there are four types of annual afflictions:

  • Tai Sui (太岁)
  • Year Breaker (岁破)
  • Three Killings (三煞)
  • Five Yellow (五黄)

In 2021, the annual afflictions are located in the following sectors:

  • Tai Sui – North-East 1
  • Sui Po – South-West 1
  • Three Killings – East 1, East 2 and East 3
  • Five Yellow – South-East

1. Tai Sui (太岁)

Tai Sui (太岁) is also known as the Grand Duke Jupiter Tai Sui. Its position is signified by the earthly branch (Zodiac sign) of the year.

It is important to watch out for affliction with Tai Sui direction as offending it will bring worries, material losses and health issues to the family. It covers an area of 15 degrees. Since 2021 is the year of the Ox, the North-East sector will be affected by Tai Sui.

Important things to note:

  • Avoid construction or renovation if your house has a facing direction of North-East. Direct conflict may result in loss of wealth, illnesses, accidents and theft.
  • Avoid construction or renovation in the North sector of your house.
  • You can sit with your back towards the North-East direction while working but never face it while you are sleeping or working.

2. Year Breaker (岁破)

The Year Breaker occupies the sector that is directly opposite Tai Sui. This is the South-West direction in 2021, covering an area of 15 degrees. The Year Breaker brings about loss of wealth, obstacles and illnesses.

Important things to note:

  • No construction or renovation should be carried out if the sitting position of your home is situated in the South-West direction. If disturbed, this can cause immediate health problems especially for the elderly.
  • Always face the Year Breaker while sleeping or working.
  • Never sit or sleep with your back facing this direction as you will be directly facing Tai Sui.

3. Three Killings (三煞)

The three killings are associated with negative repercussions such as theft, loss of wealth and recurring health problems to members of the family. It covers an area of 90 degrees.

For the year of 2021, the three following sectors are affected: East 1, East 2 and East 3.

The three killings consist of 3 types of Sha Qi: Robbery Sha (劫煞), Calamity Sha (灾煞) and Annual Sha (岁煞).

Important things to note:

  • If three killings are situated at the sitting direction of your house, renovation should be avoided completely.
  • As the three killings are said to be like a poison arrow, you should avoid sitting with your back faced in this position as it will result in getting back-stabbed.

4. Five Yellow (五黄)

Five Yellow (五黄) is known as the misfortune star. It causes severe illnesses, accidents, financial losses and challenges in your relationships. As the name suggests, this is one of the most inauspicious sectors or directions to avoid. It covers an area of 45 degrees. For the year 2021, it lands on the South-East sector.

Important things to note:

  • If the sitting direction of your home is situated in the South-East, renovation works should be avoided completely.
  • If South-East is the facing direction of your home, renovation and moving in can still happen under the condition that Five Yellow must not be situated at the main door.
  • Problems and misfortunes will arise when Five Yellow is situated at the main door, the stove or the bed that has a bad flying star combination.
