Flying Stars 2017
One popular method of Feng Shui is the Flying Star system which represents nine stars and whose origin probably was inspired from the constellation we call the Big Dipper. The reason it is called the Flying Stars is because they are constantly moving and their impact is directional.
The Flying Stars are associated with the Compass School of Feng Shui. People that prescribe to this school look at the horoscope of a building. Their method incorporates a building’s geographic positioning, cartographical direction and chronologic age to create a Flying Star chart and numerological diagram. By analyzing the stars that are present in each the various directions one can designate in which quadrant Feng Shui appointments should be installed to reduce negative influences and activate auspicious energies.

Click here for 2017 Flying Star Product Overview.
CENTER – Sector 1 – White Star (Water Element): This star brings career luck in the form of promotions and recognition. Also residing here is the Romance or Peach Blossom Star. This star’s appearance highlights relationships and affects marriage, socializing, one’s popularity, event attendance, and going out on the town. Use the Power Blue Crystal to bring in more activity. Enhance this area by decorating with colorful flowers and with the placement of the Relationship Ducks Charm or the Pink Relationship Ducks & Crystal. For those already married, or if third-party relationships are looming threateningly, you can block this star’s energy by using the Amber Crystal and decorating with the color yellow (Earth), especially if your bedroom is in the Center sector. Placing a Jade Rooster, a symbol of protection and a deterrent of extramarital affairs, in this sector will further block the Peach Blossom menace. However, people in sales or communication fields are recommended to avoid placing a Rooster in the Center as this will cause the Earth element to cut off their Water Element and cause blockage to their income.
NORTHWEST – Sector 2 – Sickness Star (Earth Element): This star’s presence in this area triggers the negative effects of chronic disease, accidents, or the possibility of surgery. Proven methods for negating these are to donate blood or perform good deeds. Recommended adjustments to place in this sector are the Brass Gourd, Natural Gourd or the Prosperity Gourd. In olden times, such a "Hu Lu," or gourd, was used to store medicinal herbs. Chinese deities (such as the Eight Immortals) were often portrayed carrying a gourd in which they would capture and contain evil spirits. If your office or business door opens facing Northwest place the Power of Nine Crystal. Avoid using the colors yellow and red here. Be careful of lawsuits resulting in arguments.
WEST – Sector 3 –Tai Sway and The Dispute Star (Wood Element): The Dispute Star residing in this area is characterized by disharmony in business or family relationships. Recommended adjustments are to place a 12 Zodiac Porcelain Wall Hanging, a set of Foo Dogs, a Pi Xiu, or a Good Luck Couplet in this sector. If your bed or bedroom is in this sector or if your main or business door opens toward the West, implement a Good Fortune Nightlight or Red Crystal or hang a Flying Star Dynamic Dragon Crystal. Emphasize your use of the color red here. So as to avoid further activation of this star’s influence do not include a fish tank or many plants. This is also the direction of this year’s Tai Sway or Grand Duke. If possible, do not make excessive noise here. If your front door opens to the West, you can hang or use a Brass Gourd, Prosperity Couplet, or Ru Yi/Good Luck Couplet facing the West to promote good relationships. Use caution! Traditionally, this is considered one of the most important areas in which to make adjustments to negate destructive influences, especially by those who are having a Tai Sway Year (Rooster, Dog and Rabbit). This is an inauspicious direction for renovation for these three signs, so be sure to contact a Feng Shui consultant and receive a blessing ceremony before proceeding with any renovation plans. For those having a Tai Sway year (Rooster, Dog and Rabbit), try to benefit from one of the Three Happinesses by attending happy events (house warming parties, weddings, baby showers, birthdays, anniversary parties, etc.) and enjoy yourself at these celebrations by eating food, singing, or dancing. Plan carefully when moving or making big investments; before you make your move, consider the effects. Carry a lucky charm.
NORTHEAST – Sector 4 –The Wisdom Star (Wood Element): This star appears in the Northeast sector in 2017. This area is an excellent place for studying because it favors academics. If your desk is in the Northeast, that is perfect! If not, great adjustments for this area are to place four live stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a container with water, place a pagoda on a green fabric on your desk, or hang a Blue Crystal, Green Crystal, Calligrapher's Brushes, or a green Pi Xiu Charm. It also helps with the energy if your desk faces this direction. It is auspicious in 2017 if your front door or bedroom is in the Northeast and in order to increase the good luck energy hang a green or blue crystal there.
SOUTH – Sector 5 – The Disaster Star aka Hu Ang or Five Yellow Star (Earth Element): This is considered the most malevolent and dangerous of the nine stars. It can bring misfortunes, accidents, loss, and death. Its presence indicates tragedy, sickness, calamities, and obstacles to overcome. Many will experience the effects by facing challenges in health and relationships or encountering financial hardship. Install a Pi Xiu, Brass Gourd, Flying Star Prosperity Gourd, Five Element Power Bell, Money Coins & Crystal, Emperor’s Desk Bell or Wind Chime With Crystal in this sector to negate these effects. This is an inauspicious direction for renovation, so be sure to contact a Feng Shui consultant and receive a blessing ceremony before proceeding with any plans. Install an adjustment if your house or main gate faces this direction or if your bed sits in this direction. Also it is not recommended to sit or stay in this direction for any extended period of time. It is also best to simply avoid undertaking any renovation projects this year. Adjust this area and be conscious to avoid arguments, remain frugal, work diligently, and keep to your own business. Avoid using the colors yellow and red here. The star is strong this year and it can block your luck. It is especially important for Dogs, Roosters and Rabbits to adjust this sector.
NORTH – Sector 6 – The Lucky Carriage Star (Metal Element): This is an auspicious direction; if you are in the military, politics, a blue-collar worker, or a technician, make adjustments here and concentrate on the intention of improving your career. Avoid using the color red. If your bed is in this sector or your bedroom, front, or business doors open to the North, use an accent of yellow, gold, or metal to activate this star. One can also place a Golden Imperial Pi Xiu or AB Crystal, Amber Crystal, or Power of Nine Crystal here to attract better prospects.
SOUTHWEST – Sector 7 – The Broken Army Star (Metal Element): This star signifies violence and bloodshed. It can also symbolize loss of family members, robbery, lawsuits, jail, or violence. If your home or business faces Southwest, your bed is in the Southwest, or your bedroom door opens toward the Southwest, hang a Blue Crystal, Power Blue Crystal, Blue Elephant and Rhinoceros Charm or Feng Shui Flute. Do not place—or at least minimally use—moving objects or adjustments that create sound such as wind chimes, radios, drum sets, or televisions. It is advised to move such items out of this sector. Avoid the color red here.
EAST – Sector 8 – The Wealth Star (Earth Element): This star encompasses wealth, prosperity, success, and happiness and is regarded as the most auspicious and luckiest star. The Wealth Star advances one’s reputation and prosperity. Enhance this area by placing a Golden Imperial Pi Xiu, a Good Luck Couplet, the Prosperity Couplet or the Flying Star Prosperity Gourd facing East. Highlight this sector with the colors red and yellow. Also, to further emphasize wealth, hang the Purple Crystal or the Longevity Coins; this goes for anyone whose bed is in this sector. The Three Legged Money Frog or the Money Coins & Crystal will also work well here. Also, if your front or bedroom doors face East you may use a doormat and hang either a Red Power Crystal or Power of Nine Crystal near the door. If the kitchen is in this direction, be careful and use more protection (your nourishment is there). Additionally, you can use a Golden Pi Xiu or Brass Gourd for protection. Place these objects in the East facing the same direction. Also consider placing a Moon Light Fountain. Be careful because even if sitting in the West and only facing the East, one still activates the Three Killing Stars (Destructive). This configuration, if left uncorrected, may spill over into other sectors as well, causing negative effects on one’s entire year. Use a mythological creature, such as a Qi Lin, to adjust this. Place this on the ground either outside looking toward the street or inside the house facing your door. WARNING: Do not renovate here without Feng Shui consultation.
SOUTHEAST – Sector 9 –The Happiness Star (Fire Element): This star brings wonderful good fortune and excellent prospects for the future. To further benefit your marriage or other personal/business relationships, place a Good Fortune Nightlight, a Power Red Crystal, a Pink Relationship Ducks & Crystal, or the 12 Zodiac Porcelain Wall Hanging here. If your front door opens to the Southeast, you can hang a Double Happiness Couplet facing the Southeast to promote good relationships.
