TAI SUI 2023


TAI SUI 2023 / 2024




Tai Sui (太岁), also known as the Grand Duke Jupiter is the Guardian Deity of the Year in Chinese astrology. He is in charge of all the fortunes of a particular year - our prosperity, health and luck are under his jurisdiction. There are a total of 60 Tai Sui, and every year there will be one ruling Tai Sui. In 2023, the ruling Tai Sui is General Pi Shi.

Each God of Tai Sui is also associated with a particular direction. This determines which zodiac animals are in conflict by the Tai Sui of the year. Tai Sui is connected with the planet Jupiter’s movement around the sun and with the way this affects the Earth’s magnetic field so offending the Tai Sui just means that the stars of your Zodiac, relative to Tai Sui’s stars, are in a bad position and therefore your energy field is affected by the unstable energy of Jupiter. As Tai Sui governs everyone’s fortunes, the zodiacs that come in conflict with Tai Sui might be greeted with bad energy and poor luck.

The effect of Tai Sui lasts for an entire year and can seriously mess with your luck in all areas of life, including health, money and love. Those affected by Tai Sui are advised to take extra care in everything they do to avoid incurring additional turbulence. Failing to do so would mean a year of turmoil and adversity or ahead.

What are the Chinese zodiac signs that clash with Tai Sui in 2023 year of the Rabbit?

For the year of the Rabbit 2023, the Tai Sui's direction is the East 2, which impacts the signs of Rooster, Rabbit, Horse and Rat. The most direct effects will be felt by the Rooster and Rabbit, while the Horse and Rat feel indirect effects. In Chinese culture, these signs are said to be "Fan Tai Sui" (犯太岁). All these groups will need to watch out for instability in luck.

It is very important for these signs to use caution to avoid obstacles or conflicts that come their way. Money loss in business is one possibility, and it can include extra expenses that were not in your plans. Obstacles can also take the form of people who are trying to hold you back or cause harm, and this negativity is more difficult to overcome. This means it’s not likely you’ll see the rewards you hoped for (especially in finances) in spite of your hard work. It can also bring criticism from a business partner or betrayal of some form. Arguments within a personal relationship arise and temptation is possible outside your relationship. Health issues are possible and can be simple such as a headache or lack of energy to a much more serious illness.

Rabbit - The Rabbits will have some minor health problems. Your career progression will be hindered and your pursuit for money will not be smooth. Those who go out to seek wealth will have the risk of financial loss. Your love and relationship will also not go smooth. No matter what difficulties you encounter, you need to stay calm and rational and never act impulsively. Pay more attention to your words and actions; do not to speak ill of others. 

Rooster - The overall development of the Roosters will be adversely affected. The Roosters should work harder and be calm in facing adversities. Stay vigilant at all times. Think twice before you act so as to avoid getting yourselves into trouble. In terms of relationship, you should be more caring and considerate towards your partners; in case of conflicts or disputes, you should learn to restrain and tolerate and avoid being impulsive.

Rat - You are easy to offend and attract ill-intentioned people. You are prone to fines or contractual disputes in 2023. At the same time, you will be prone to failure in business. The main reason is that the Rats are too eager for quick success. You should not follow others blindly in business and starting up business. Do not arbitrarily guarantee or borrow large amounts of cash. Health luck is not satisfactory. You should try to be kind to others.

Horse - The Horse will have to bear a lot of pressure abd bad luck in your careers. As you are very competent, you will be very likely to cause jealousy and bring betrayal from some bad people. If you want to go through the hardships, you must remain modest and cautious in work and life; think twice before you act. Pay extra attention to your emotional changes especially when dealing with people; learn to control your temper so as not to incur disputes and troubles.

The Tai Sui moves to a different direction/sector each year. In 2023, it is located in the East 2. Anyone falling into the following categories is also considered in conflict with Tai Sui:

  • Anyone whose main door, a bedroom in use or their living room is located in the East 2 sector
  • Anyone living in an East 2 facing house
  • A person who has done renovations or repairs or someone who has done digging, or even hammering a tiny nail in either the East 2 or the West 2 sector of their home or office.
  • A person whose office or study area faces East 2
  • Someone who sits facing East 2
  • Someone who sleeps with their head pointing to the East 2



For those who offends Tai Sui, act as soon as you can by taking precautions before problems occur. Display the Tai Sui Plaque 2023 or Pi Yao in the East sector to appease him. Everyone regardless of zodiac sign can place the Tai Sui Plaque at home to get his support and backing throughout the year. You can protect yourself from the wrath of Tai Sui and guard against the potential negative impact of Tai Sui by carrying and wearing amulets and talismans for the year, for example the Tai Sui Amulet 2023 or Brass Feng Shui Piyao Biting Coin Amulet. Keep a Tai Sui Card 2023 in your purse or wallet. Stay safe when driving and hang a Colorful Liu Li Piyao with Lotuses Beaded Tassel or Yellow Liuli Pair of Piyao Feng Shui Tassel in your car. Help others when possible to keep in their good graces.


Stay away from heated discussions or arguments by not reacting or offering an opinion that could create tension. Think before acting or doing something rather than acting impulsively.

Visit a Tai Sui temple if there is one in your area to pray to appease him. The most important time to do this is the 8th day of the first lunar month.

It’s not the time to have loud noises or activity, including construction noise, in either the East or the West sectors during 2023.

The Tai Sui concept is usually practiced by Chinese who are Buddhist and Taoist. Regardless of your beliefs, it would still be best to take into account the annual sector of Tai Sui, because disturbing or offending him is not something you want to do.

Important Note: the God of the Year - Tai Sui - changes each year. Therefore, the Tai Sui amulets, plaques or keychains you purchased to help you in other years are not to be reused for 2023. Wrap those items in a piece of paper, give them thanks for past protection, and throw them away.

The Pi Yao’s (Pi Xiu) role in Feng Shui is a crucial one because they are the best cure to appease the Grand Duke or Tai Sui. The consequences of the Grand Duke’s wrath (when confronted) can be petty to serious; it includes loss of job, money-loss or failure in workplace. All this can happen even if you’d accidentally or unwittingly sat or slept facing the direction of the Grand Duke. If your job happens to be confrontational or involving tough competition, the effects of Tai Sui will be worse as your opponents will win with ease.

Placing a Pi Yao figurine or a Tai Sui Plaque at home or in your workplace can help neutralize the threat of the Grand Duke Jupiter. Lillian Too, famous Feng Shui Grandmaster and author advises “It is a good idea to display the Pi Yao at home or in the office, especially if you are unsure of the direction of Grand Duke Jupiter, since he shifts direction each year.”

All of us have to keep moving about and sitting in different places while being engaged in our daily work. This may inadvertently make us confront the Grand Duke Jupiter many times a day and we may not even know it! If you’ve experienced situations when really bright ideas fail to get through, when there are unnecessary arguments in your workplace or you start to feel unwell just prior to an important appointment; this may be the reason. Your Animal sign might be in conflict or you may be sitting directly confronting the Grand Duke Jupiter!

For those affected by Fan Tai Sui, carrying or wearing a Pi Yao or Pi Xiu amulet or Tai Sui Amulet can help resolve any hardship that might come up, especially in money matters.
