Feng Shui – A Few Bad Stars
In Chinese Metaphysics, there are many types of systems and formulas. One of them is known as Flying Stars systems of
Feng Shui. In this system, there are nine types of stars which are given numeral of 1 - 9. These stars are actually bodies of
energy (also known as Qi) that moves within a property. In Feng Shui, a property is divided into nine equal sectors based on
compass direction of North, South, East, West, Northeast, Southeast, Northwest and Southwest. The sector without any
compass direction is the center. The distribution of Qi over these sectors demarcates the good and bad sectors therein and
formed an energy pattern within a property. The energy pattern in a property will change from month to month and year to year
as the stars fly from one sector to the other.

periods and each period has 20 years based on the Chinese Solar Calendar. We are currently in period 8 which started in
