Reminder: Do not Sit with your Back towards the 3 Killings
(updated Dec 29th, 2018)
As I sit here, facing South, as I am today, I thought hey I should send out a reminder to everyone…so here it is.. Every Year, the 3 Killings can cause bad luck in the forms of accidents, financial loss, and illness.
Did you experience that? Oh yes it was, Double trouble for some last year.
- the Three Killings (San Sha) are in the West – do not sit with your back in this direction, 232.5-307.5
- the Tai Sui (The Grand Duke of Jupiter) – is located in the northwest (322.5 337.5)
- Sui Poi (Year Breaker) – is located in the Southeast (142.5 º -157.5 º)
Let me explain the Concept of the 3 Killings…
What is the 3 Killings, is it a murderer?
I did some more digging and this is what I found.

The Three Killings (San Sha in Mandarin or Sarm Saat in Cantonese) is one of the major afflictions that need to be updated before the start of each New Year based on the Chinese Solar calendar. That day is referred to as Li Chun or Lap Chun meaning “beginning of spring” and usually falls on 4th February. Hence, it is good Feng Shui practice to update yourself on the incoming year’s energies (especially the hostile ones) and have all your cures and enhancers in place by the 3rd February every year.
Although the concept of the Three Killings is associated with 3 Earthly Branches (that’s the Zodiac animals to you and me), its annual position is defined according to one of the four cardinal compass directions, namely North (Water), East (Wood), South (Fire) and West (Metal). The 12 animals are grouped into 4 teams of harmonious alliances. Each team of 3 animals, also known collectively as horoscope allies or trinity of allies, belongs to a specific element or phase – Water, Wood, Fire or Metal, which then determines the primary direction of the Trinity.
In any given year, the facing position of the San Sha corresponds to the direction of the trinity of allies.
For instance, in the Southern Trinity year of Tiger, Horse and Dog (as in 2018), South is considered to be facing San Sha which is thus located directly opposite – North. In short, the San Sha always occupies or sits in the direction diametrically opposite to the current year’s Trinity direction and its center is always located in the North, South, East, or West.
