Feng Shui – A Few Good 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.
In Flying Stars Feng Shui, a property belonged to a period of time based on its facing direction. There are altogether nine
periods and each period has 20 years based on the Chinese Solar Calendar. We are currently in period 8 which started in
February 2004 and will last until February 2023. In each period, the nine flying stars are categorizes into good and bad stars.
The good stars are deemed timely and will bring prosperity to residents of a property whereas the bad ones are considered
untimely and become portents of misfortune. For this period, the few good stars are 8, 9 and 1. Star 8 is the current prosperity
star whereas star 9 and 1 are future and distant prosperity stars respectively.
Star 8 is considered very auspicious as it is the ruling star of the period. It brings wealth, financial success, career advancement
and prosperity to the residents when it flies into a given sector of a property. For example, star 8 occupies the East sector in the
year 2008. A house with the main entrance in the East sector or a room in the East sector will be able to tap into the positive
energy of this star and the residents will enjoy good luck in their endeavors.
Star 9 is deemed auspicious as it is the ruling star for the next period which will start from Feb 2023 onwards. This star brings
future prosperity to the residents. In year 2008, this star flies into the Southeast sector of a property. A door or room where this
star is located will allow the residents therein to enjoy good luck such as long term investments, promotion and business
Star 1 is also auspicious as it is the distant ruling star and belonged to period 1 which will start from Feb 2043 onwards. This
star brings wisdom, academic luck, recognition and fame. In year 2008, this star flies into the center of a property. A door or
room with this star residing in it will be bring scholarly luck for students or those in the literary, artistic or creative fields.
The other useable stars are star 6 and 4. Both stars are deemed to be untimely but nevertheless have their positive qualities
when combined with favorable stars of the current period. Star 6 is suitable for power and status whereas star 4 can be used
for romance and academic pursuits. Star 6 and star 4 resides in the North and Northeast respectively in year 2008.
