How to Remedy the Situation with Heavenly Axe Sha Facing Your Home

A. Place a Curtain to block it

The best mitigation method is to cover the window with drawn curtains at all times and place a 5 Ancient Emperor Chinese Coin or a brass dragon turtle at the entry of the Sha qi to cure the situation.

B. Place plants to disperse the Sha Qi

You can also display plants with big leaves at the Sha Qi entry to disperse or slow down the negative energy from gushing into the home

C. Display Ba Gua Mirror

Display Ba Gua on the door/window or balcony to reflect the negative feng shui energy away from pointing at your home, but here are a few pointers to take note when using Ba Gua.


  1. Always get a Ba Gua that is convex for reflecting negative Sha qi (Do not get the concave type)
  2. Hang the Ba Gua mirror to face outside and NOT inside of the house
  3. Do not have your Ba Gua mirror facing other people’s house
