August 2004 update on Xuan Kong Flying Stars
By Sallie Tsui Sien
Please be aware of other websites scaring people into buying their products each month to avoid these monthly afflictions, click here for more details
I shall explain a little here what Xuan Kong (flying stars) is in order to benefit our readers who are not familiar with it.
The Xuan Kong 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 to 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.
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.
You are only affected (positively or negatively) by the frequently used areas. Hence the advice:
- 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 negatively 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 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.
Many may have their annual cures in place to ensure a smooth year ahead; if not please follow this link for more details. The annual cures can be placed at any time of the year up until February 2005.
Xuan Kong Flying Stars August 2004:
From August 7th to September 6th 2004 is the month of Ren Shen (Yang Water Monkey), the seventh month of the Jia Shen year (Yang Wood Monkey year) with the ruling energy of #5 Yellow in the central grid.
The Beneficial Palaces for Ren Shen (Yang Water Monkey) Month are:
Northeast – Offices with doors here may see an increase in business and excellent financial prospects. Opportunities are in abundance for those whose offices are in this sector. This is especially beneficial to those in the land and property business. This is a good palace for pregnant ladies.
North – For those engaged in literary, research and creative work, things will run very smoothly this month if your office or study is located in this sector of the property / building.
South – There are possible promotions and positive career changes. You will also be recognised for all your efforts and contributions in your area of work.
Southeast – The qi of the southeast 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. Do not activate it with more water as this may bring problems to your romantic encounters.
Sectors to be aware of this month:
Southwest – A palace deemed unfortunate for the year should all the more be avoided this month. Ladies who are pregnant are advised to avoid this sector, at least for the month. There are indications of possible illnesses to the stomach and in serious cases these could lead to pregnancy complications. Persons under this influence may also experience feelings of despair.
Placing some metal decorative ornaments in the southwest corner of the room may help to dissipate some of the negative energy. If you use our monthly cures kit you should place an extra Wu Lou here this month along with metal ornaments like brass Dragon etc. Avoid burning candles here at all costs.
East – Try to be extra patient with each other this month if your bedroom is located in this palace. Those affected may see themselves under a great deal of strain as a result of frequent arguments and end up feeling a little hysterical. Stay low if your work desk happens to be in the east of the office as there may be unwarranted bickering and gossip. Legal issues may be prominent this month too. Be on form when dealing with important documents. Do not get too frustrated if pre-arranged plans change course without prior notice; it is just the monthly influence. Stay focussed and, with determination, you will be able to steer the ship to safe shores no matter how stormy the weather may be. Burn a candle here or place some red objects, if your main door is here place a red door mat.
West – If the kitchen is in this palace of the house, you may find that knives or sharp metal objects may cause you and your family injury if you are not careful when handling them. So be careful. Keep all knives and sharp metal objects out of children’s reach. Be extra careful too with metal tools that are kept in the garage located in the west corner
of the house.
If this is your front door, take extra security measures. Make double sure that the door is locked before leaving the premises.
If your office is here, be modest about your work or you will be faced with competition and unwarranted criticism.
To calm interactions, you can try placing some blue (not water) e.g. a blue floor mat by the front door or blue furnishing in the kitchen, to calm interaction.
Northwest – Those prone to lung diseases must take extra care this month if they reside in a room in the northwest. Indications of hostility between family members may also be pronounced as this month’s influence may exacerbate long standing problems. Again, blue is a good colour to negate the interactions. A more effective method is to not use the palace
as often this month and if, faced with this problem, stay calm, hold your tongue and have an open mind.
I hope you find this August update useful in keeping you informed of which sector is potentially influenced by positive or negative chi. Do not hesitate to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org should you need to clarify anything. I will try to answer all your questions.

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.
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.
