In fung shui, love sectors are related to the present year or our astrological year of birth, which can be stimulated to increase our chances of finding romance.

For this year, based on the 'Flying Stars' formula, the romance sectors are located in the northeast and the southwest. The northeast is associated with the one water-star, which is related to romance and academic success for men, while the southwest with the associated four wood-star suggests personal opportunities for women.

If you are male, stimulate the northeast sector by placing a water feature - such as a water fountain or aquarium - in the living room of your home or office. For women, stimulate the southwest by placing water features or indoor plants in the relevant sector of your living room or workspace. But don't place them in bedrooms, which may disturb your sleep.

You can also use the romance sector associated with your Chinese zodiac animal. For those born in the years of the Rat, Dragon and Monkey, the sector is in the west. Those born in the years of the Ox, Snake and Rooster will find theirs in the south. For Tigers, Horses and Dogs, the area is in the east. Those who belong to the signs of the Rabbit, Sheep and Pig should pay attention to the north.

Apart from aquariums and vases with plants, some fung shui masters suggest placing symbols of romance - such as images of loving couples - in the romance sectors to improve one's chances of finding the right partner.
