May 2004 update on Xuan Kong Flying Stars
By Sallie Tsui Sien
I like this saying very much.
“Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.”
Many times it is the psychological hurdles that stop us in our tracks but we think it is our Feng Shui that causes it. At times, fear can do more harm. It places a mental block on our focus and creativity to perform. The real challenge in a good Feng Shui audit is how to manipulate a bad situation to our advantage. A card player will understand the saying ‘the skill in card playing is not in the possession of a good hand but to play a poor hand well’.

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 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.
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 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.
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 serves 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 negativelyaffected 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 May 2004:
From May 5th to 4th June 2004 is the month of Ji Si (Yin Earth Snake), the fourth month of the Jia Shen year (yang Wood Monkey year) with the ruling energy of #8 White in the central grid.
This month, please be very careful with the southwest palace. Read on….
The Beneficial Palaces for Ji Si (Yin Earth Snake) Month are:
North palace – If this is your office, successful business can be made through good networking especially for those who are in the media, PR, creative, promotion and communication fields. Writers and researchers will also benefit from this influence if their writing desk is located in this palace. Encourage those who are studying or involved in academic pursuits or literary challenges to use this palace frequently.
South – The meeting of the energies in this sector enhances the probability of conception. Couples who hope to start a family should look to using the south bedroom.
West – The waning of Period 7 does not necessarily mean that the annual 7 will give rise to hostilities. This is because Period 7 belongs to the lower era (period 7, 8 and 9) and therefore will continue to influence us positively when combined with benevolent monthly stars especially in the early years of Period 8. The monthly influence in May brings business opportunities through travelling. Those whose rooms are located in the west sector of the office plan and are in the communication or travelling area of work will benefit greatly from this combination of qi.
Sectors to be aware of this month:
Southwest – The monthly 5 Yellow has flown into this southwest palace where the annual #2 Black resides. The combination not only denotes illnesses and constant poor health, obstacles and difficulties in endeavours but also threatens break ups in relationships, divorces, lawsuits and emotional and nervous breakdown. My advice is to be very careful with the southwest palace in the month of May. Do not undertake any form of renovation, hammering nails or drilling in the wall, or disturb the earth with digging work for ponds, wells or swimming pools. Working with any noisy equipment in this area is also not advisable. 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. 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. 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. Moving metal objects such as gongs and bells are very effective remedies. Instead of using metal objects, you may also use the salt water cure. Objective metal symbols such as golden Wu Lou, tortoises or 6 ancient Chinese metal coins tied in a row are also good cures. If the kitchen is here, beware of food poisoning and illness associated with the stomach and abdomen. Place hygiene at the top of your priorities and be extra careful as to the source of goods bought and their preparation. On the other hand, if the southwest sector of your home is where your bathroom, cloakroom and utility room are, you do not have to place any cure. Just keep the area quiet and keep the door closed. Northeast – Minor illnesses are indicated when the monthly 2 Black visits the palace. This will affect young males in particularly. Residents of properties sitting or facing the northeast – southwest axis may be more prone to illnesses this month. Do take extra care with health and diet and make sure that both children and adults are dressed appropriately according to the weather. If this area of your home is a bedroom 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 #5 sickness and bad luck star. East – 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. If stairs are located in this palace, take extra care when climbing them and make sure children do not play around this area as injuries to the limbs are possible. Young males whose bedrooms are located in this east palace will also experience behaviour problems this month. Be patient with them. Use some blue in the room furnishing (this could be bed sheets, blue lampshades etc) to balance the elements in this palace for the month. Southeast – The elements in this palace are also in conflict and this may bring about emotional setbacks. You may feel cheated which will set off arguments and outbursts. Couples should exercise control. In doing so, you will have succeeded in manipulating the energies of your living space to your own benefit. Keep some blue in the décor to help to calm interaction. Northwest – Headaches and lung problems are prevalent if your office or bedroom is located here. As such, you should take extra care with not being overstressed or overworked. If the kitchen is located here, be wary of fire hazards. Make sure the stove (hob) is turned off completely after cooking and before leaving the kitchen alone. If your living room is here, do not leave lit candles unattended and keep matches and lighters out of children’s reach. I hope you find this April update useful in keeping you informed of which sector is potentially influenced by positive or negative chi.

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 Ch’i 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.
