Important Feng Shui Advice for New Buildings and New Construction

 Do you live in a home (or work in a building) built after 2004? Are you considering buying a new home, or an apartment in a new building? Are you currently building a home (or adding a large addition)? Are you constructing a new building? If so, please read this. There are important issues with newer buildings which require extra care…

“Flying Star” Feng Shui is a an advanced reading of a space using numerical calculations.  It is partially determined by the “cycle” when a building was built. Each cycle lasts 20 years, and  has particular strengths and weaknesses.

In 2004 we started a new cycle, and buildings built from 2004 through 2023 have two very unique characteristics: they contain the strongest, and the weakest, Feng Shui energy. You can actually find the energy that is associated with wild success, and the energy associated with severe accidents or illness, side by side in the same building.

This is quite rare. I consider it an extreme example of the Yin-Yang principle: every item contains its opposite within itself. (The Feng Shui of new buildings is a little like the Yin-Yang on steroids!)

 If you are currently living or working in a building built in this period: Don’t fear. There are always ways to neutralize the weak areas using Feng Shui cures (although it is important to know that you can never turn a negative into a positive, you can only neutralize it). It is important to find out exactly where the weak spots fall in your space, and in some cases you may want to rearrange your furniture to avoid spending long periods of time in those areas. 

The good news is that you probably have some wonderful energy in your home or office that you should be taking advantage of. Getting a Flying Star Feng Shui reading can tell you were it is located, and give you suggestions for maximizing its power.

If you are currently constructing a new home or building: You still have time to make important changes. It’s a good idea to find out where the weak and strong zones fall in your new construction as soon as possible. This will allow you to make decisions about the locations of key rooms. Weak areas are perfect locations for storage closets, laundry rooms, garages, and other seldom used spaces. Strong energy areas will be good locations for family rooms, offices, bedrooms, and kitchens.


If you are in the planning stages of a new construction: You are in luck! By determining the Feng Shui of your property first, you can work around the weak zones, or even “cut out” the weak spots from your building design altogether. For example: say you are designing a new home and you find out that a very weak Feng Shui energy falls in the Southeast corner of your property, you might decide to turn that corner into an open courtyard or deck, thereby “cutting out” the weak Feng Shui corner of your house.

Knowing where the stronger Feng Shui falls on your property, you can design a layout that places the master bedroom or the home office smack dab in the middle of the good energy, thereby maximizing its effectiveness.

The important thing to remember is that Feng Shui is about creating solutions, not making problems. There is always a remedy in Feng Shui, so rest assured that you can improve any situation.

 Knowledge is power, and knowing the energy of your space empowers you to make decisions that will support you in creating a space that helps you achieve your goals.
