Displaying art is a great way to inject personal style into your home, and if it brings good luck, even better! Only hang art that evokes positive emotions on your walls. As much as possible, avoid showcasing art with fierce animals or that depict violence, destitution, suffering or sadness, as these are the last things we would want to attract into our lives.
Indeed, the best artworks for feng shui are those that incorporate auspicious symbols and take elemental relationships into consideration. Placed in the correct sectors, these have the power to elevate the good vibrations present, and attract a whole lot of good fortune into your home and into your life.
Here are some recommendations by former student and feng shui artist, Lucy Deslandes to help you get the most out of 2023’s Flying Star chart.

#5 Star in the Northwest
To suppress the Misfortune Star in small tai chi spaces like bedrooms and offices, place these “8 Metal Chinese Coins” in the Northwest.
The Metal element here helps overcome the dangerous Earth energy of the #5 Star. Because Northwest is also a Metal sector, having this here brings travel luck and helpful people as well.
