I shall explain a little here what Xuan Kong (flying stars) is in order to benefit our readers who are not familiar with it. Please remember this is only the monthly good or bad influence, you can enhance and cure even more by following our annual advice,
follow this link for more details.
The Xuan Kong (flying star) system addresses the time dimension of Feng Shui of a given property (home or office). This is an analysis of the interaction of elements (fire, earth, metal, water and wood) within the different sectors of the property and how we may enhance the good energies o give us support or suppress the bad energies by keeping them at bay. Every year we put together an annual cures kit which enhances good stars and cures bad stars; these are essential for every home and office. These cures and enhancers kits can be placed at any time of the year.
If you are thinking of building a house, this is the time when we analyse the natal chart (flying star chart as below) to determine the best locations for all doors and the allocation of important rooms in order to harness the beneficial distribution of energy. Every property will have good and bad stars; the secret is placing the good stars in places like an office,
bedroom, lounge or dining room and the bad ones in places like a bathroom, en-suite, cloakroom or utility room.
In Feng Shui terms, the interaction between the energies (good or bad) of each sector of a Xuan Kong chart above will affect the well-being of the household.
In addition, this interaction is further influenced by the visitation of the Annual visiting energy that represents the potential influence, as well as the Monthly visiting energy that acts like a catalyst. These influences are experienced in varying degrees throughout the month because of the Daily visiting energy.
The important palaces (sectors) that affect us most are:
- a. The main / front door
- b. The door you use for entry and exit frequently or on a daily basis
- c. The sector where your office is located within the building
- d. Your bedroom location within your property
- e. The rooms that are used frequently where most activities, noise and movement are, e.g. kitchen, living room, study or the playroom
What do we do with this information?
In every house, there are good and bad palaces which affect our daily lives. How and who gets affected (good or bad) depends on who occupies which area. The objective here is to be aware of the influences and how to capitalise on the beneficial energies or avoid the unfavourable influences either through enhancers or cures or avoidance. Knowing the effects of the influences allows us to take appropriate measures and actions to calm interactions. So, do not get too worried when you come across a bad sector – sometimes with thought, care and the appropriate elements, we can balance any conflict of energies or compensate the lack of an element to bring harmony to a palace. That said, if a palace is particularly bad, avoidance is the best cure.
You do not have to run around and try to cure every affected sector of your house. Simply be aware of the potential influences of the sectors. The objective of this update is to prepare you by informing you of the intangible forces of energy that exist in each sector of the house and how these may influence your performance.
Please do not panic when you find that your bedroom is located in an affected sector for the month. This is only a temporary influence and can be avoided. If you cannot avoid the room completely, then try to use the good small sectors (tai chi) of the room. There are more details on how to do this towards the bottom of this page.
You are only affected (positively or negatively) by the frequently used areas. Hence the advice:
If your main door is affected and this is only the door you have in your property, you should take extra care in what you do during the affected month. You will know it may not be a good time to take risks and also to take extra care of your health.

Xuan Kong Flying Stars April 2006:
From 5th April to 4th May 2006 is the third month (Ren Chen) of the
year of the fire Dog (Bing Xu) with the ruling energy of #3 jade wood
in the central grid. You will notice on the chart above that the monthly
and annual stars are identical and this causes the influence to be amplified
good or bad.
The Beneficial Palaces for April 2006 are:
North – This is the best sector for the month. Use this room or part of the home/office as often as possible. Celebrations and happy events are predicted. Businesses with a main door in the north may find an increase in revenue. As far as work goes, possible career advancement can be achieved. If there are any aspects of your life that you wish to improve this month place an object in the north, an example would be if you are applying for a new job place the application copy forms in the north or north of your room.
If you have children who are sitting/studying exams try and encourage them to study in the north, northwest or east this month and place a crystal ball or globe beside their desk.
Offices with doors opening or an office in the north may find their business go up a beat this month. The energies denote great business opportunities. If you happen to occupy an office in the north, stride ahead with your plans and ventures. If you have a crystal globe this is a great place to have this month. Keep this part of the home active this month and if you have children encourage them to play here providing it is safe.
For those who like to work with symbolic objects, you can place your three legged toad in north corner of the office /study but make sure that it faces into the room and not outwards and the coin is always kept in his mouth.
This can be a good sector for those who are looking to tie the knot or for whom romance is on the agenda. The energy of the month can be conducive for building long term relationships. You can place your mandarin ducks or rose quartz double hearts here to remind you of this romantic influence.
Southwest – A mix of good and bad here. Can be very good for study and career if a bedroom or study/office are located here, however if you have a kitchen here be aware that there is potential of fires and this would be a good time to check or fit smoke alarms and also be careful of burning yourself on a cooker. If your kitchen is located in the southwest place some blue objects like floor coverings, tea towels etc. A good traditional cure is to hang a coin sword. Going back to the bright side this could be a very good month for wedding plans and promotions.
For romance/relationships you could place a moving water feature in the SW this month and also a pair of Mandarin Ducks or other romantic symbolic object.
East – A lovely combination especially for those working in creative fields like artists, authors or academic work. If you have children who are studying try and encourage them to study in the east or northwest this month and place a crystal ball or globe beside their desk.
This combination can also be very good for relationships and can be enhanced by placing round metal objects like a Wu Lou or just a round metal dish. The down side of this combination is that it can cause problems with the bowels, kidneys or bladder and usually caused by excessive alcohol. Please make sure you drink plenty of water this month and this is especially so for those of you in hotter countries.
Northwest – The qi of the northwest brings excellent prospects for writing and romance. Make use of this sector of the house as the indication here is that writing and romance will flourish. You can place some indoor bamboo or fresh cut flowers but do not activate it with moving water as this will bring problems to your romantic encounters.
Sectors to be aware of this month:
Northeast – On its own the #6 star is harmless but this month it combines with much metal element and can cause accidents involving metal which normally takes the form of car accidents or even sharp objects like knives or scissors, so please be very careful and if you have a child who occupies a northeast room a little lesson on road safety would be good and also make sure no knives or scissors are in their bedroom.
If you have an important room like a bedroom, office or sitting room in the northeast introduce some temporary colours by using a rug, bed cover, pillows or similar colour in a dark blue, this will calm the energy here. If this area is a bathroom or utility or similar unimportant room do not bother.
West – The west is where the Five Yellow is and it is here double time (#5 annual & #5 monthly) this month so my advice is to avoid it completely. It is of paramount importance
that you do not undertake any repair work, renovations, breaking ground or felling trees in this sector this month. If activated, its influence can create problems, obstacles, accidents and illnesses for the residents or the business in the office. As you know I do not normally like to recommend a product cure but a Wu Lou, six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon or six rod metal wind chime is very effective here.
Use another door if this is your front door. If you have a bathroom or cloakroom here or any room you do not use much this is good news and no cure is necessary.
Avoidance is the best cure for this combination of qi. If you cannot avoid using this room, make sure that metal cures are in place like a Wu Lou and/or six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon. Use metal such as gold, copper or brass. You can use whatever still metal objects you have got handy in your house but do avoid objects that are sharp or menacing looking. Do not place any red, pink or orange colours in this area or anything triangular or square in shape.
If there are external poison arrows, for example, sharp roof lines, sharp images or unfriendly structures pointing at your property from this west direction, this may bring fire accidents. Place a Ba Gua outside if your main door is located here.
You would be well advised to refrain from using red in the general décor for the month. Place some blue items instead to calm the fiery interaction. If you use our monthly cures kit this is where you would place a Wu Lou and/or six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon.
Southeast – This is not a nice area this month and causes many problems; you only need concern yourself if the southeast is an important part of your home like a bedroom, lounge
or office though. If you are pregnant or recovering from illness avoid this part of the home.
Avoidance is the best cure for this combination of qi. If you cannot avoid using this room, make sure that metal cures are in place like a Wu Lou and/or six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon. Use metal such as gold, copper or brass. You can use whatever still metal objects you have got handy in your house but do avoid objects that are sharp or
menacing looking. Do not place any red, pink or orange colours in this area or anything triangular or square in shape and do not burn candles in the southeast for the whole year.
If there are external poison arrows, for example, sharp roof lines, sharp images or unfriendly structures pointing at your property from this southeast direction, this may bring fire accidents. Place a Ba Gua mirror outside if your main door is located here.
You would be well advised to refrain from using red in the general décor for the month. Place some blue items instead to calm the fiery interaction. If you use our monthly cures kit this is where you would place a Wu Lou and/or six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon. You should have your annual cures up.
South – If your main door, bedroom or office is located in the south be aware of potential deception from people you trust or arguments with neighbours. There is only small risk of this as the negative virtues of this combination are very weak; however it is better to be cautious.
Place some blue objects here to weaken the negative influence, if this a kitchen or main door you should also place a salt water cure for the month or just a still clean bowl of water, make sure the water is replaced every few days though especially if you live in a warm and dusty climate.
I hope you find this April update useful in keeping you informed of which sectors are potentially influenced by positive or negative qi. Please remember this is only the monthly good or bad influence, you can enhance and cure even more by following our 2006 annual advice, follow this link for more details. The cures and enhancers for 2006 can be placed at any time of the year.

What if you cannot move rooms?
If you are unable to move to another room for the month, make sure your bed or work/study tables are in a more beneficial area for the month.
Example: If you or your child are in a bedroom in a bad area of the home this month, get your compass and stand in the centre of your room and place the bed or desk in a more auspicious area for the month as mentioned above.
As you can see from above, you can turn a bad situation into a better one. You will not only avoid all problems but the child will benefit from being in a good area. You must try and keep the bad area quiet so it is not a good idea to have a music centre in the bad area. Remember that you can apply this to any room in your home so, if your office is in an afflicted sector; place your desk in an auspicious sector of the room this month
I know it is easier said than done but moving out of a room that has temporary inauspicious qi is worth it. This is so especially with health issues provided you can afford the space and rooms. If you cannot, do not fret. The effect can be minimised by relocating the bed or study/work/office table to an auspicious sector (follow example above) of the room or placing cures as recommended on this site. As I have said before, this is a monthly
influence and so it will pass.
