Feng Shui Tips 2014 - Flying Stars 2014
See our newest feng shui tips 2015
The year of 2014 is the year of horse. However, the start of the year of horse, Li Chun (the start of spring), the first solar term of 2014, will be at 6:12 am on February 4th, 2014. The annual flying star will relocate after that time; the new flying star chart thus shows below. To ensure a year of safety, health, abundance and smooth sailing, one can stimulate the auspicious chi and suppress the ominous energy by re-arranging the feng shui tools in the light of the new energy pattern of the house.
The chart below is the annual flying star chart for the year of horse. The chart divides the house (office) into 9 grids. South is on the top, North is in the bottom, East is on the left and West is on the right side of the map (It is the opposite of the regular map). This map tells you where a specific flying star will locate.
How can I follow it?
Step one: Find the center of your house or your office. It is usually the intersection of two diagonals of the house.
Step Two: Slowly rotate your compass. Let the needle point to the due south/north (depends the version of your compass).
Do your compass reading as the needle stays still. (If you use Feng Shui Compass in English Version, you don't need to align and rotate. The compass will do it for you.)
Step Three: Divide your house into eight portions from the point where you are standing.
Step Four: Follow the following instructions to display Feng Shui cure or enhancer in the corresponding region.
Southeast of the House:
Flying star #3 will locates in the southeast region of the house. As one of the inauspicious stars, star #3 causes arguments, damage, lawsuit, etc. Southeast in original Ba Gua belongs to Xun Gua, which implies the eldest daughter, widow, female between ages 30 to 45 years old, and the Chinese zodiac dragon and snake. Accordingly, the attributes of star #3 will occur to people who are in these categories. For those whose main doors are in the Southeast region, they should also pay extra attention to the forthcoming unfavorable energy.
Feng Shui Cures:
Since star #3 belongs to wood element, one can hang or display more red items in this area to dissolve this inauspicious star’s wood energy. Magic Fire Wheel with Metal Base or Ksitigarbha Fireball for Displaying is best feng shui cures to suppress the energy of star #3 in this region.
East of the House:
Flying star #2 will locates in the east region of the house.As the star of sickness, #2 causes illness, especially digestive system problem. East in original Babua belongs to Zhen Gua, which represents the eldest son and males between ages 30 to 45 years old, or the Chinese zodiac Rabbit. Hence, the eldest son, males between ages 30 to 45 years old, or people who are Chinese Zodiac Rabbit might be more susceptible to stomach, digestive system disease or other ailments that others are. In view of the east region also preserving the energy of star #3, this combination of star#2 and #3 causes dissonance for the family or working place. One whose main door is located in east should also beware of ill and quarrelsome energy.
Feng Shui cures:
Star #2 belongs to earth element and it will be ferocious since the east region where it locates is wood element. The conflict between earth and wood elements will bring out even more potential dangers of #2, such as disagreement, fight and accident.
Displaying the Medicine Buddha Plaque or 5 Element Pagoda with Mantra in the east can dissolve some illness chi. In addition, display Brass Wu Lou Carved with Chinese Herbs (either shinning or brown color) in this location can help a lot since Wu Lou is one of the best cures to decrease sickness chi.
Zodiac Rabbit should carry Green Dzambhala Talisman Card.
Southwest of the House:
Star #1 locates in the southwest region. As the star of relationship, star #1 brings propitious energy for love, networking and business. SW in the original Ba Gua represents mother, female household, female over 45 years old, Chinese zodiac Ram and zodiac Monkey. Therefore, flying star #1 will affect mostly to people who are in this category and those whose main doors locate in SW of their house.
Feng Shui enhancers:
Center of the House:
Star #4 locates in the central region of the house. The center is recognized as the original point of Tai ji, through where chi redistributes over other regions. It is also the point of emptiness as any other stars, besides Five Yellow, are hard to develop their potentials.
As a result, the energy of star #4, though not as powerful as it was used to be, might take a bit longer to fully grow. That being said, the creative power of star #4 should never be lower estimated. Especially for those who seek to further their education, professionals who hanker after making a breakthrough in the artistic field, or someone who gets stuck in their life, #4 is extremely beneficial for generating inspiration and cultivating potential talent.
Feng Shui enhancers:
Those who want to tap the chi of star #4 should carry Manjushri Bodhisattva Talisman Card.
Northwest of the House:
Star #5, the notorious Five Yellow, will locate in the northwest region of the house. Five Yellow belongs to earth element. It possesses the most unstable energy of all nine flying stars and always brings unexpected changes and accidents to life. Keep in mind that the northwest region this year is also partly inflicted by Three Killings, which doubles the potential danger of this place. Therefore, the northwest region should be kept calm and avoid any reconstruction.
NW region is Qian Gua in original Bagua whilst Qian Gua represents father, male household, males over 45 years old, Chinese zodiac Dog or zodiac Pig. Consequently these groups of people and people whose main doors locate in NW should be aware of the ominous energy of Five Yellow.
Feng Shui Cures:
West of the House:
Star #6, the career star, will stay in the west region this year. Representing career, promotion, benefactor and positive changes, #6 is one of most promising star in the nine-star family.
West in original Ba Gua is Dui Gua that represents youngest female, the third daughter, females under 15 years old, or zodiac rooster, etc. People who belong to the above category or whose main doors locate in the west should grasp the opportunity to stimulate the propitious energy of #6.
Feng Shui enhancers:
Zodiac Rooster should carry Sakyamuni Buddha Talisman Card.
Northeast of the House:
This inauspicious flying star also represents theft and loss. It may sound untenable to have the property lost all of a sudden. Nonetheless, the most common case is, according to our experience, that we may lose value in our stocking market or housing market. Therefore, investing will be very careful. The star will always find certain way to release its energy.
In the original Ba gua, Northeast belongs to Gen Gua that signifies the third son or the youngest son, or zodiac Ox or zodiac Tiger. Therefore, people who are the in the categories,or those whose main doors locate in the northeast should beware of the ominous energy of star #7.
Since flying star #7 belongs to metal element, it will be supported by the earth element in the northeast region. Thus the ominous effect of #7 will be double and appear in a more manifest way in the year of horse, especially for those whose main door locates in the northeast. Avoid arguing with others and patience will prevent you from being involved in further entanglements.
Feng shui cures:
Display Bejeweled Medicine Buddha or Blue Rhino and Elephant Water Feature in the northeast corner is the best feng shui remedy to this unfortunate star. For people who are zodiac Rooster, it is better to carry Anti Burglary Amulet.
South of the House:
The wealth star #8 will locate in the south region in 2014. This auspicious star will bring you career luck and prosperity. If your main door locates in south, you will have great chance to enhance your financial luck. However, since south region is also the place of Tai Sui this year, any reconstructions should be avoided.
South is Li Gua, which represents the middle-aged female, or the second daughter or females between 16 and 30 years old, or zodiac Horse, etc. As a result, people who were born in the zodiac sign of Horse, middle-aged female, or the second daughter or females between 16 and 30 years old, or have main door located in the south will benefit from positive energy of #8. If being activated properly, the energy of #8 can be elevated by the power of Tai Sui.
Feng shui enhancers:
To borrow the propitious power of Tai Sui, One can place one Pi Yao w/ Flaming Sword.
Since flying star #8 belongs to Earth element, you can use Yellow Jade Wealthy Pot with Ingots or 7 Jade Ingots on Star of David Crystal Base with one 8-coin charm on the side to activate flying star #8. Zodiac Horse should carry Red Dzambhala Talisman Card to increase more money luck.
North of the House:
Star #9 is the star of bliss that signifies delight events, such as promotion, new start of enterprise, marriage and giving birth of new baby. North in the original bagua symbolizes the second son, zodiac Rat, or the male between 15 and 30 years old. As a result, people who were born in the zodiac sign rat, second son, or the male between 15 and 30 years old might take advantage of this auspicious star. One will also benefit from this star in the coming year if the main door of one’s house or office locates in the north. That being said, the north region is also the areas of Sui Po (in the opposite direction of Tai Sui) and Three Killings. Therefore, do avoid any kind of reconstruction in this region.
Feng shui tips:
In order to suppress the menacing energy of Sui Po, hang one Good Luck Red Scroll.
To alleviate the threatening energy of Three Killings, one can display one 3 Divine Guardians with Flaming Sword for 3 Killings.
Flying star #9 belongs to fire element. One can display Red Crystal Globe with mani or Bejeweled Red Tara in the north to stimulate the propitious energy of star #9. Zodiac Rat should carry Harmony Talisman Card.
Overall of feng shui tips 2014
In 2014 year of the Horse, we need to pay special attention to south, northwest, north, southeast and northeast, especially for the first three, which are the positions of Tai Sui, Five Yellow, Sui Po and Three Killings. These regions of the house or office should avoid reconstructions for the vibration will easily bring accidents to life. The other two regions—northeast and southeast are regions of disharmony and violence unless feng Shui cures being applied, but otherwise one should not stay there for too long.
West and southwest are auspicious places that one can stay more often than usual. One can place water fountain in the west since it is also the “water” place in the period of eight while southwest is a great “mountain” place from where one’s health and career can benefit. One can choose southwest as a place to read and study.
