July 2003 update on Xuan Kong
Written by Sallie Tsui Sien
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 be aware of other websites scaring people into buying their products each month to avoid these monthly afflictions,
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 cures and enhances good and bad stars; these are essential for every home and office.
If you were 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 kitchen, bathroom, en-suite, cloakroom or utility room.
In Feng Shui terms, the interaction between the energies of each sector of a Xuan Kong chart above, “the Heavenly Heart of the House” (centre of home), 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.
Xuan Kong update for the month of July 2003
From July 7th to August 7th is the month of the Yin Earth Goat/Sheep with the ruling energy of #9 Purple in the central grid. The energies present during the month affect most the sector where the main door, the bedroom/door or the office are located. Please note that the facing direction of your main door or house is not necessarily where your main door is located. For more information on this please follow this link. property.htm
What do we do with this information? Remember, in Feng Shui, the more activities within a sector, the more the energies that exist are activated. Hence the advice:
- Use the beneficial areas more and the areas of negative influences less.
- Use another door if your main door is affected this month.
- Use the good sectors to solve existing problems whether they concern relationship or money matters.
There is no need to place any more cures (unless recommended to do so) as I take it that you have your annual cures 2003 kit and enhancements in place by now. Besides, the monthly energies are only temporary influences. This update is to prepare you for what is possible and to be prepared to take more care or risk in what you do. Please be aware of other websites or newsletters that tell you must buy their products each month to avoid the monthly flying star negative areas, they do this to scare people into buying, there are only a couple of cures you should have to use in any month, this is normally where the #5 or #2 are located and you can use metal objects you probably have in the house already.
Check to see if there are any menacing looking structures, i.e. a sharp pointed roof, a straight road, a fly-over, a dead tree etc… directed at your building / property. These structures can transform a good combination of energies into a malignant one or can aggravate an already malevolent combination to a deadly one. If you have any of the above it would be wise to hang a Ba Gua mirror to deflect them.
The Beneficial Sectors for the Month of Yin Earth Goat are:
Northwest sector promotes plenty of opportunities in planning new business ventures. There is great success but competition is deadly. Use this area if you are in a communication type business like sales.
Northeast sector promised ideal romance last month (June) and it continues to serve eager couples that wish to start or expand a family this month. The meeting of the energies in this sector enhances the probabilities for conceiving.
However, make sure the bed is not located in the north or east corners of the room.
South sector is beneficial for studies, academic or relationship pursuits. If your office is in this sector, ingenious business ideas will be generated with promotion opportunities increased.
Sectors to be aware of:
Southeast sector Although afflicted this year by the annual #5 Yellow, we get to see a peek of sunlight this month with the presence of the monthly #8 white influence. I would still proceed with caution.
North sector is where the annual #2 Black resides this year. Named the ‘monarch of sickness’ and when coupled with the monthly #5 Yellow, the combination is the deadliest in the whole of the flying star system for Period 7 and Period 8.
The combination not only signifies illnesses and accidents, which can sometimes be fatal, it also threatens break ups in relationships, divorces, backstabbing lawsuits and bankruptcy.
I would advise strenuously to leave this north sector room alone between 7th July and 7th August.
- Use another entrance door if possible or use the back door for example. It is worthwhile, no matter how inconvenient it may be for now.
- Make a makeshift bed in the lounge (if you do not have a spare bedroom) in order to avoid sleeping in a north sector bedroom.
If you have to use the north sector, then follow the following advice:
1. If this is an office, locate your work desk in the northwest or south corner of the room and make sure you are facing one of your auspicious directions (Sheng Ch’i) according to the Eight Mansions Theory.
2. If this is a bedroom, relocate the bed to another sector. Make sure there are no red items or furnishing (i.e. curtains, bedspread, cushions, lamps etc…) in this room. Use metal objects or apply grey, white, silver and gold in the furnishing. Make sure you are facing one of your auspicious directions according to the Eight Mansions Theory.
3. If the kitchen is here, beware of food poisoning and illness associated with food. Take extra care on food preparation. If you are fond of seafood, beware of its origin and freshness particularly if July turns out to be a hot month.
4. Use metal cures or place plenty of metal objects in the north sector of the property or north corner of the room. (Remember, when using metal ornaments and objects, make sure the designs are not menacing or sharp looking, for they can constitute ‘interior poison arrows’).
5. Hang a six hollow rod metal wind-chime along with six Chinese coins tied in a row in the north corner of the room. Remember, in trying to hang the chime, do not drill or hammer nails into the wall, as this will aggravate the negative energies. You can tape the wind-chime up. Where the 5 Yellow is, we do not disturb its 45º radius. Hang wind chime to head height and chime it from time to time.
!!! Do not hang wind chimes here if you know this sector housed an argumentative #3 as shown on your property natal chart if this was prepared by a professional consultant.
Please be careful if your health is not good and your bedroom or any room you spend a lot of time in is located in the north. If you have your 2003 annual cures kit in place the negative effects will be much less. A Wu Lou beside your bed is also a good cure.
Southwest sector If your bedroom, office or main door is in this sector, please take extra care when you are on the road. Potential accidental injuries are indicated and headaches are prevalent. Be very careful when using sharp metal objects such as knives or axes or anything that is metal.
This sector is also bad for young males who will experience behavioural problems.
East sector may bring about emotional setbacks. If your bedroom or office is here, you may feel cheated which will set off arguments and outburst. I would recommend you exercise control.
In knowing beforehand what effects the malevolent energy of a sector can have on your well-being, and by exercising caution, avoidance and control, you know you have succeeded in manipulating the energies of your living environment to your own benefit. This is what Feng Shui is all about.
West sector although visited by the very auspicious annual #8 white, this month’s #2 Black plays some havoc with health and may create a little difficulty at work if your bedroom or office is in this sector.
I hope you find this July update useful in keeping you informed of which sector is potentially auspicious or risky. Remember, this is only a monthly influence and it will pass. The severity of the influences also depends on the properties of the ‘facing’ and ‘sitting’ stars of the sectors within your property. Do not hesitate to write to me 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.
Example: If you or your child is in a bedroom in a bad area of the home this month, get your compass 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 many problems he will benefit from being in a good area. You must try and keep the bad area quiet so not a good idea to have a music centre in the bad area. Remember you can apply this to any room in your home so if your office is in the NE place your desk in the SW this month (make sure your back does not face SW this year).
I know it is easier said than done but moving out of a room that has temporary inauspicious Ch’i is worth it. This is so especially with health issues provided you could 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.
