Tai Sui Grand Duke Jupiter: Meaning and Uses
Tai Sui has long been regarded as a mysterious force capable of controlling and influencing people's fates.
When it comes to Tai Sui, you might be most impressed by the legend that those who clash with him in Ben Ming Nian will suffer misfortune in that year. Tai Sui actually refers to Grand Duke Jupiter. Chinese astronomers used to count the years in accordance with Jupiter's 12-year orbital cycle. Tai Sui, for example, will be at a Zi direction in a Zi year and at a Chou direction in a Chou year, and so on. The Twelve Earthly Branches are spatially and temporally related, so when it comes to heaven, an earthly branch will refer to time, and when it comes to earth, it will refer to space or direction.
In Feng Shui terms, Tai Sui refers to the direction of an earthly branch throughout the year. For example, Tai Sui falls to Yin in the year of Geng Yin, so Tai Sui will be located in Yin (northeast) in that year; in the year of Xin Mou, Tai Sui falls to Mou, so Tai Sui will be located in Mou (east) in that year. Tai Sui was regarded as the Grand Commander of the Year by ancient Chinese people, and his proper direction was regarded as a position of worship.
Every year, the superior or monarch position of Tai Sui is considered superior to the subject or inferior position. Conflict with Tai Sui is the opposite direction of Tai Sui (Sui Po Direction or Year Breaker Direction), which means the subject will offend its monarch. Conflict, clash, or damage to Tai Sui is a major no-no in Feng Shui theory. The following are the directions that conflict with Tai Sui:

3. Break ground
Breaking ground in the direction of Tai Sui or the opposite direction is forbidden. You'll offend Tai Sui and invite misfortune if you don't.
Furthermore, if you go to school, trade, work, or travel in the direction of Tai Sui or the opposite, you will clash with him.
The direction of Tai Sui in 2021 and Feng Shui Layout
Tai Sui will fly northeast in 2021, and the direction of conflict with Tai Sui (the direction of Year Breaker) will be southwest, which is unfavourable. If your front door faces northeast, Tai Sui will be at the position of the door, and people entering and exiting it will offend Tai Sui, causing you to be prone to disagreements and misfortunes. If you hang a trigram at the position, you can solve the problem.
Tai Sui's direction is unquestionably monarchical, and you should worship him fervently. If you break the ground, drill a hole in the wall, or drive a nail in the direction, you will offend Tai Sui and invite misfortunes. Meanwhile, do not break ground or construct in the direction of Tai Sui's conflict, or you will offend Tai Sui and invite trouble.
Do not sit or sleep with your head pointing in the direction of the Grand Duke or the two directions above.
Keep Tai Sui's direction neat. Keep the northeast and southwest directions of your house clean and tidy in the Ox year of 2021. If you stack sundries in opposite directions, you will be disrespectful to Tai Sui and your luck in love, career, wealth, health, and education will be harmed.
Green plants in the northeast corner of your house will strengthen Tai Sui's power to bless your family and help them get through the year peacefully.

To please Tai Sui, you can worship at home. You should worship between the 23rd and 24th of the twelfth lunar month and the Lantern Festival to receive Tai Sui's blessing, especially if your animal sign is in conflict with Tai Sui in 2021; once you move Tai Sui with your sincerity, you will be blessed.
