You may have heard of the tai sui, or grand duke, sector. This year, it refers to the sector governed by the tiger, which is located at 52.5 to 67.5 degrees. This corresponds to the northeast sector. Now we know where the grand duke sector is, how does that help us? It is recommended that you don't dig, drill or knock down any walls in the northeast sector of your property this year. If the northeast sector of your garden requires some work, for example, you'd be advised to wait until next year to carry it out. If you undertake any major renovation in the northeast sector, you are disturbing or moving the grand duke, and this may result in financial loss, health problems or accidents and mishaps. If it is imperative for you to carry out some construction in the grand duke sector, it is preferable that you consult an experienced fung shui practitioner, who will suggest dates on which to carry out the work to minimise the detrimental effects. Don't assume that misfortune will occur to all occupants of properties that sit northeast this year. What is important is that this sector is kept tranquil. If this condition is met, living in, or moving into, a property that sits northeast will not be problematic in terms of fung shui.
