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 of the home or business. The best Cure is to be aware of the influences each month and know 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 particularly 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. If a palace is particularly bad, avoidance is the best cure.
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.
- Use the beneficial areas more and the areas of negative influences less. For example, if the living room is affected by conflicting energies, try not to play loud music in this room for the month. By keeping the area quiet, you successfully manipulate the effect of the energies.
- If possible, use another door if your main door is affected this month.
- Use the good sectors to solve existing problems whether they concern relationships or money matters.
If your main door is affected and this is the only 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 August 2014:
From 8th August to 7th September 2014 is the seventh month of the Jia Wu year (Yang Wood Horse year) with the ruling energy of #2 in the central grid.
Beneficial sectors for August 2014
Southeast – This is a lovely area in August and If this is a child’s bedroom, office or bedroom you should place a set of eight Chinese i-ching coins tied in a circle with a bell hanging under. To enhance academic try and have your child study in the southeast part of their bedroom along with a gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue as this protects wealth and also creates wealth in August.
Blue would be a good colour scheme for the room in the southeast this month. Blue can be used in beddings, throw-over, lampshades, pillow covers etc… If a bed is located in this corner, the northeast part of the room, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside their bed.
Businesses that rely on sales or related to industries supplying flowers or plants could do very well this month if they activate this southeast area, and especially so if they have a main door here, to enhance further place a water feature in the southeast.
Place creative enhancements like displaying an abacus, calligraphy set, artist tools like canvas, brushes etc.
West – Sun 4 green Wen Qu romance and literacy star is a wood star. It affects the thighs, hip, buttock, bladder, liver and can cause colds and flu although on the whole it is considered an auspicious star. The Sun wood 4 is a conditional star and is auspicious in Period 8 (2004 – 2024).
It governs romance, career, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. With the wood of the #4 star flying in for the month, we can expect a lovely energy from here as it creates a lovely peach blossom if activated correctly with the right enhancers.
This cure and enhancer when used is a manifestation enhancer and it is good to place an image that represents everything you want to achieve in life, an example to some would be a picture of a beautiful home that you desire, a male or female that you admire, a car like a Ferrari or Mini, the number of children you would like, I think you are getting the picture by now, just create a dream board with all that you desire pinned to it or draw the image or you can even download some images from www.google.com this really is a very powerful way of manifesting your dreams and it really does work, remember to place the image in this area this month.
Whilst this star is very auspicious if you have any poison arrows like lamp posts, pylons or large corners of house’s pointing toward this area consider hanging a ba gua wealth protection mirror outside pointing toward the offending object as the #4 star can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the cures are not put in place.
Avoid fire element and colours red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue or black. Good place for an indoor Yin water feature (bamboo or fresh flowers, NOT MOVING WATER). Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open. Do not use metal items here. Spend time in the west if you want to enhance romance, creativity or academic pursuits.
South – this area is good for career, wealth, politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the property market, so for those with a main door, office/study in the south will benefit greatly.
Those who have main doors or offices in the south sector can enjoy excellent business and career success. However, whilst 6 White represents attainment, if the #6 annual star is located in a bedroom it can cause problems with the liver and/or legs. If you do have a bedroom in the south place some blue cloth like a rug or duvet cover to dissipate its energy.
This is a nice area and even better if your main door or office is located here, keep area active with windows and doors open. Good colours are earth colours yellow. Place some real quartz crystal here or the hanging faceted sphere type; these are very good for activating the wealth and business side of this nice star.
If this is your bedroom, a shade of blue or black in your furnishing or décor may help with health. A blue painting (not water scene) may also do.
Avoid placing additional metal objects in this sector or room; however, a very good symbolic enhancer is a gold coloured wealth ingot, as it will enhance the wealth nature of the trigram Chi’en. Try and get one that is not made of metal though and just metal coloured.
Southwest – Wealth, fame. Romance, prestige and distinction can be expected especially if you have an office here or a main door, even if you do not we can still activate it. It brings good fortune and exciting times.
If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are good for this southwest palace this month. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer is a pair of rose quartz double hearts or a pair of Mandarin Ducks this month.
Do not place heavy metal in the southwest this month, as it will weaken the good earth. Great news if you have your main door here and if you are in an office try and locate your desk in north part of the office.
This is a very strong wealth, success and romance area so try and store your important financial papers here like pensions, stock portfolio etc in the southwest. If you use symbolic cures this is where you should place your three-legged Toad facing your Sheng Chi direction for wealth a pair of rose quartz crystal hearts for romance.
East – Li 9 Purple (You Bi) Li 9 Purple is a fire star and a yin trigram and considered a star of future wealth and has an auspicious influence in Period 8. Career opportunities and promotions are probable especially if you have an office or main door in this area this month.
Career opportunities and promotions are probable especially if you have an office or main door in the east in August. There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement.
There is fame and acknowledgement, growth and improvement. It affects the eyes, mental disturbance, blood disorders and stomach and can cause problems at work. These problems only occur when you have poison arrows directed to this area this month. It also affects wealth career and luck and because it is timely in period 8 (2004 – 2024) it is considered an auspicious flying star.
If you disturb this area this month you may cause problems for the middle daughter and it could affect heart, stomach or blood related. If you have any poison arrows like lamp post, pylons or large comers of house pointing toward this area consider hanging a flat ba gua mirror outside pointing toward the offending object. Generally though there is nothing to worry about with the #9 star as it is it is timely and an auspicious star although marred with the #2 annual star so do not disturb the east in August.
If you want to enhance fertility you can display peanuts in shells (groundnuts) or any seed products like black or red melon seeds (Gua zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’ and for the Chinese this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means the birth of many children. You should display them anywhere in the bedroom and of course be careful if anyone in the home suffers with nut allergies.
Sectors to be aware of this month:
Centre –The centre of any building in August is not a very nice area at all and best left alone if possible, easy for me to say that I know although not everyone has the luxury of moving bedrooms or offices for the month.
It is awkward when a negative star flies into the centre of a building as it is usually an area that is open and hard to place cures, if the centre of your home is the middle of your dining room or lounge do not place the cures I recommend if they look strange, I will leave it up to you to decide but remember they can be placed either upstairs or downstairs or both if you prefer.
If the centre of your home or office is a bathroom, utility room, guest bedroom or other less important room do not panic this is great news for you.
If your bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in the centre this will inevitably activate its malicious effects.
This star affects the health of those under its influence bringing with it sickness, disease, bad luck, stress, stomach and digestive problems, bloated feeling, gossip, back stabbing, family harmony and distress. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4.
You need to place a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon, metal singing bowl and also place more round metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative influence in the centre in August of your home or room.
Tsai Shen Yeh (God of wealth) in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the month. Make sure there are no red items, bright lights or burning candles in this area. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like.
Avoidance of this area is the best cure although I know this is hard so try and follow the advice and try and keep it as quiet as possible.
Do not activate this area with loud noises, keep quiet and avoid at all costs building work or refurbishment throughout the month. Do not use the fire element or colours red, pink or purple. Keep doors closed.
Northwest – Beware of possible theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers and legal problems. Try and keep the northwest of your home as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations.
To remedy its effects use red decorative objects, candles lamps and lights. A nice simple cure is a red floor mat or a table lamp with a red shade but make sure you remove it at the end of the month. Do not use any more metal (annual cures are good though) to control this energy for you will aggravate it, restricting the beneficial influence brought by auspicious monthly stars in certain months and magnify its negative influence.
Ensure that documents signed during this month are checked through thoroughly before committing. The influence of a Chen 3 in Period 8 denotes possible arguments, disagreement and in extreme cases, this can result in lawsuits, either as a petitioner or a defendant. Either case there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during August, especially if you have a main door in the northwest and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave.
In temper, there may be bursts of irritability affecting those under this influence. If your office or bedroom is here, short temper and antagonistic are common characteristics in those affected by the 3.
Northeast – Do not disturb its position here with noisy activities, renovations or maintenance work in August. Houses with gardens to this corner of the property should avoid disturbing the ground with major digging or building work.
You should place a Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and also place more metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative.
Wherever the Five Yellow is, you must never disturb its position by lots of drilling or knocking activities.
You must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing in this sector. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.
If your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard is located here, this is good for you this month because these areas are not used much and therefore the negative power is not activated, I would still place the cures though regardless of what room is located in the northeast.
North – The north in August brings a risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing. If you have a door here or even a window you should be looking to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics.
Please take extra security measures especially if you have a front, back or side door in the north sector. Make sure doors and windows are fastened securely before leaving the house. Do not display valuable items on windowsills, which may attract the interests of passers-by.
It pays to be wise to avoid taking too many risks for there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses.
You can use blue in your decoration. Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it and don’t forget that the negative influence of the monthly stars are usually of the earth elements.
Be careful of your colleagues stabbing you in the back. Sometimes this often goes unnoticed as it is done very secretly. Having good Feng Shui is really being aware of potential problems and not just placing cures here and there to protect (talking myself out of sales as usual)
Keep area quiet and doors and windows kept closed. Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours and crystals.
I hope you all enjoyed reading and have had a great month.
