Aside from the inauspicious Flying Stars, you should also watch where the notorious Tai Sui, Sui Po, and Three-Killings are moving in 2024.
In 2024, the Tai Sui moves to the direction of the Dragon in the Southeast. This means the Dragon clashes with the Grand Duke Jupiter, causing misfortune to the zodiac animal this year. Watch out for potential challenges in many aspects of your life, including your finances, relationships, and health.
Sui Po, known as the Year Breaker, moves to the direction of the Dog and the Pig in the Northwest. Sui Po is known to bring instability and disturbances, especially in the area it occupies.
