The new Feng Shui year begins on the 4th February 2020, in line with the Chinese solar year, Li Chun, the first day of Spring.   2020 is governed by the White Metal Rat and the 7 Metal Lo Shu number. Every year the visiting Flying Stars move sector bringing a new influence into each cardinal sector in the property and with this comes a change in the natal Flying Stars blueprint.

On this day the Annual Afflictions also move around the Lo Shu square, changing the favourable and unfavourable sectors when considering construction and ground breaking in 2020. Read more about these Feng Shui influences here.
