2019 is the Year of Ji Hai in the traditional cycle of years, and the Deity of the Year is named Star General Xie Tai. The Heavenly Stem of Ji corresponds to Earth, the Earthly Branch of Hai corresponds to Water, and the Nayin (Melodic) Five Element is “Meadow Wood.” Because the Heavenly Stem corresponds to Earth, its colour is Yellow, so 2019 is also called the “Year of the Yellow Pig.”
For those born in the Year Ji Hai, belonging to the animal sign of the Pig, South and North are greatly favourable, and West is unfavourable.
The Deity of the Year is located in the Northwest – in the direction of Qian and in the position of Hai, so it is not suitable to carry out renovations or break ground in this direction. The Year Breaker is located in the Southeast, in the direction of Xun and the position of Si, so the head of one’s bed or desk should not be placed in this direction.
Five Yellow is located in the Southwest – in the direction of Kun. Five Yellow represents disaster and trouble, so those who are located in areas to the Southwest should be particularly careful. By all means avoid breaking ground in the Southwest. The attack of Five Yellow brings negative influence and obstruction to both families and individuals, such as disharmony in the home, adversity in business, and poor health. Unexpected accidents should also be guarded against.
Three Killings is located due East – in the direction of Dui, which represents quarreling and disputes, and is harmful to human interaction. All business in 2019 should be done according to the way of moderation, and affairs should be carried out with particular prudence, in as low a profile way as possible.
Two Black is located in the Northeast – in the direction of Gen. Two Black represents illness and obstruction, so it is inadvisable to break ground or place various items and furniture in this direction, in order to permit smooth circulation and entry and exit.
