In the year of the Fire Monkey which began on 4th February 2016, Tai Sui aka the deity in charge is General Guan Zhong 管仲. Taoists and Feng Shui practitioners respect him highly, and are afraid to offend him because it would cause harm and bad luck to come to them. To avoid offending the Tai Sui of the year, people pacify and enshrine the Tai Sui of the year.This year, the afflicted zodiac signs are Zodiac Tiger, Zodiac Monkey, Zodiac Snake and Zodiac Pig.In 2016, the Tai Sui (Grand Duke Jupiter) moves to the Southwest 3, the zodiac palace of the Monkey. Those whose houses face Southwest or Northeast are in indirect or direct clash with the Tai Sui and are advised to appease the Grand Duke. It is important to avoid renovating or digging in the Southwest and one should also avoid facing the direction of Southwest this year.
Those who have images of Tai Sui can place them in the Southwest to appease the Tai Sui for the year.
