Know Your Stars
First, we need to understand the upcoming stars in 2015 that is arriving at the various directions in your home. For the negative stars, you may use some of my suggested solutions to curb the negative energy and to activate the prosperous star （取吉避凶）.
Check the Direction of Your Main Door
Which direction does your main door face? The next step is to identify the direction of your main entrance door.
You can do so by using a compass. Face your main entrance (make sure you are inside, looking out) and check the direction of your facing. Most of the Qi (energy) flows from our main door (this is relevant only for homes without balconies). Knowing the direction is a good indicator of the Qi arriving at your door step.
The Star number 3, which represents legal, court, quarrelsome and hostility issues will be at the center of your home. It is considered as the star of the year as well. For event predictions, you can expect more conflicts, arguments and hostility in the coming year. Remember to maintain your cool within the household and adopt a calm composure at all times.
Solution: At the center of your house, you can consider putting a red carpet to curb the negative Star number 3. Reduce clutter in this area of the house to have a stress-free environment.
If your main entrance faces Southeast or your room is located in the Southeast, the number 2 sickness star will arrive at this direction. The sickness star is not a force to be reckoned with as family members can fall sick easily. It affects the eldest daughter in the household as well as women in their 40s and 50s.

For homes where the main entrance is South facing, the robbery star will be at your door this year. Look out for possible thefts, investment losses and try to refrain from lending money. Do watch your investment portfolios carefully. It is also recommended not to turn to short term investments. This affects people born in the year of the Horse and the middle daughter of the household.
Solution: The South represents strong fire energy. You can consider putting live plants with big pots of earth in this sector to counter the negative star. Some masters will recommend using water to curb the fire, though water is also an activator of Qi, and this will activate the effect of the robbery star at the same time. Using brown colored decorative and furniture pieces are recommended.
