July 2005 update on Xuan Kong Flying Stars
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. 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 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. 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:
- 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 2006.
Xuan Kong Flying Stars July 2005:
From 6th July to 7th August 2005 is the sixth month of the Yi You year (Yin Wood Rooster year) with the ruling energy of #3 in the central grid.
The Beneficial Palaces for July 2005 are:
North – The energies in this palace enjoy a sense of new beginnings and many happy events. There is hope for promotion and career change and those in business may also find new ventures in the pipeline. Do make good use of this sector of your office or home. A nice table or standing lamp can be placed here to enhance this wonderful influence. If your work area is in this sector of the office, have a task light on the desk and leave it on whenever possible. 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. Try and keep windows and doors open in the north this month and leave lights on, you need to encourage as much Yang energy (brightness and airy) as possible.
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. Placing quartz crystal in this area is very good or even objects made of earth element like ceramics.
For those who like to work with symbolic objects, you can place your three legged toad in the 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.
Southwest – The combination here promote achievements in endeavours of a serious nature. Those looking to close any negotiations with a successful result will not be disappointed under this influence. Place a nice healthy plant in this sector of the room to promote growth (Please avoid prickly leaves or cactus). If you have a door here try and use it more in July and place some plants inside or out to stimulate the good energies.
Another good enhancer would be to place some materials green in colour, so for example if your lounge is in this area, place some healthy plants along with some green cushions or sofa throws etc.
Sectors to be aware of this month:
Northwest – Although a nice monthly #4 star it is spoilt by the annual #5 Yellow so please be very careful with noisy renovations, banging, drilling and hammering in this part of the house. It is strongly advised to leave any noisy work/renovations in the northwest for next year. Those who are recovering from health problems, try to stay away from this area. You can place some metal objects in the northwest corner of the room to dissipate the malevolent influence of the annual #5 Yellow. For those using our monthly cures kit place your Wu Lou here along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon to weaken the #5 sickness and bad luck star. You would be well advised to refrain from using red in the general décor for the year. Place some blue items instead to calm the fiery interaction.
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 northwest for the whole year.
East – Although a very nice monthly #1 star this is spoilt by the annual #2 black and this combination can influence and cause possible marriage problems and danger of miscarriage if not careful. For those whose bedroom is in the east palace of the home and whose work requires much travelling, do take extra care and patience on the road. If this area of your home is a bedroom, front door or office and you use our monthly cures kit place your Wu Lou here along with six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon to weaken the #2 sickness and bad luck star.
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 east for the whole year.
Southeast – Anyone under this influence may find themselves involved in office politics or in situations where they have to handle or deal with unpleasant disputes or they may experience difficulties handling their superior, peers or people under their care. All these may cause stress affecting their health and state of mind. Legal complications may arise at work for some. A word of caution: in keeping the room cool during this summer month, do not place your fan in this corner of the room. If you cannot avoid this sector, try to stay low and keep your head together and let the monthly influence pass with you unscathed. 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.
Try and think about this area carefully this month, do your children play outside in the southeast? Do they have a playroom in this area? Are you planning to carry out work in the SE this month? As you know I am not one for recommending expensive cures and enhancers every month and please be aware of other websites scaring you into buying their products, the most important thing to remember with the monthly flying star is that avoidance is the best cure for this combination of qi. If you cannot avoid using this room keep it as quiet as possible, I know this is easier said than done but try your best.
If you did want to use a traditional cure the only thing I would place here is a pair of red Fu Dogs, it is up to you.
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 outside if your main door is located here.
Northeast – This is another troublesome palace where a strong metal combination does not really bode well for those using this room and where unhealthy competition may be an issue. Beware of fraud and trickery in business and negotiations. If there is a door or window in this palace of the house, make sure you double check that it is locked before leaving the house. In addition, take extra security precautions. Place something blue around the area to calm interaction. You can introduce the colour blue or black with bed covers, cushions/pillows, rugs, floor mats, table clothes etc.
If you have a front main door here place a dark blue door mat to calm things down and please make sure that security is good.
South – Although a nice annual #8 star we have a not so nice #7 star that can cause theft and many other problems relating to theft like copyright theft. We personally have had a fair share of this over the last few months and it often happens from someone you thought you knew well, so be aware of smiling faces as you cannot always tell a book by its cover.
Place some blue objects here to weaken, if this a kitchen, office or main door you should place a bowl of still clean 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 July 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 annual advice, follow this link for more details.

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.
