2018 Flying Stars Feng Shui
Year Of The Yang - Earth Dog
One of the most intriguing aspects of Feng Shui is called the Flying Stars system. Each year energies change bringing in good and bad influences and are identified as “Flying Stars”.
Good stars are Romance, Luck, Wealth, Good Fortune, Future Prosperity and the aim is to enhance and strengthen their affect by using appropriate colours and elements to achieve the most benefit. Likewise, we avoid colours and elements that weaken them.
Bad or malevolent stars are Illness, Arguments, Robbery, Misfortune and we make changes to weaken their effect and reduce their impact.
The Stars are likely to be felt more if that particular Star targets a bedroom, your front door or office.
Your Feng Shui changes and placements for 2018 need to be done on February 4th.
2018 is likely to be a year of natural disasters as the Future Prosperity star is in the Centre thus triggering problems. It may be a year of hardship for many, so it is important that the correct Feng Shui cures are placed in the appropriate sectors of your home/business.
Everyone needs to be financially cautious this year.
As stated in previous years, there is always going to be good and bad in any year but by observing the principles of Feng Shui, particularly the Flying Stars you can minimise the bad stuff and enhance the good stuff.
To determine the areas in your house/workplace, stand in the centre of your home/office with a compass and determine which sector is in the North, South, East, West and so on. The bit in the middle is the Centre.
1. Luck - North West
The Luck star, brings success in business and competitive pursuits, particularly if your main door or bedroom is in the N.W.
Keep the area quiet, do not undertake renovations in the NW this year.
To increase the benefits in 2018, display a Victory Banner, bejewelled wind-horse, and an Arowana (to protect your wealth). Water colours are good here. Display a Wu Lu if your bedroom.
Hang a Bagwa mirror outside if the NW is affected by poison arrows.
Increase Metal objects (bowls, bells, vases etc) and metal colours (gold, silver, bronze, white). Also increase water colours (blue, black)
Avoid Fire colours (red, purple, pink), candles, bright lights.
The Grand Duke resides in the South East in 2018 so you need to display a Pi Yao in the North West facing the South East.
