September 2003 update on Xuan
Kong Flying Stars
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 September 2003
From 8 September to 8th October
is the month of the Yin Metal Rooster with the ruling energy of #7 Red
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
- Use another door if your main door is negatively affected this month.
- Use the good sectors to solve existing problems whether they concern
health, 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 that 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 and this is normally where
the #5 or #2 is located. You can use metal objects you probably have in
the house already so no need to rush out and buy all the cures from your
local China town.
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. A quick note on Ba Gua mirrors
whilst I remember, I receive hundreds of emails asking advice on these,
it is much safer to have a flat Ba Gua mirror rather than a concave or
convex mirror, the latter can be very powerful but normally should be
hung with specialist guidance unless you are confident on placement and
please please do not hang them inside your home.
The Beneficial Sectors for the Month of Yin Metal Rooster are:
- The West Sector is the best sector for the month.
The energy here promotes plenty of opportunities for new business ventures
and the possible meeting of potential business partners. Career-wise,
promotion is highly likely and there is celebration in the air.
If your front door or bedroom is here, move forward with your plans with
courage and determination. You should have hung a crystal faceted sphere
in the west this year, if you haven’t you should now.
- The Northwest Sector
Anyone staying in this sector will succeed over their competition. Use
this sector more as there is good positive energy with the auspicious
star 8 white visiting this sector.
- The Northeast
There is money and career luck. Circumstances at work are favourable.
However, there are conflicting energies bringing illness. There may
also be severe eye infection.
Sectors to be aware of this month:
- The Southwest
There may be romance but there are potential heartaches, deception and
disappointments. A good cure is to keep the place well lit with bright
lights or place a red Dragon headed Tortoise. If your bedroom is in
the SW sector of the house, place a red lampshade in the SW corner of
your room. If a main door or window falls in the SW of your home or
office take extra security precautions.
- The East
Whilst on the subject of relationships, the east sector is influenced
by the monthly 5 Yellow, which can create stress and unhappiness in
relationships. Newly wedded couples should stay away from this sector
and sleep in the west or northwest rooms.With the negative influence of the 5 yellow, there are health issues
to be aware of due to overstressed emotions. Excessive pressure can
cause skin problems too. If your work involves creativity, and your
office is located in this sector, you will suffer from lack of inspiration
and imagination. A good cure here is a Wu Lou or similar shaped metal
- The North
The combination this month signifies aggravation, arguments and tension.
Do not have too much noise in this corner and do not hang wind chimes
here or you will find yourself quarrelling with everyone for no apparent
reason.If your office is in this sector then potential misunderstandings with
colleagues are no surprise. Stay low and beware of unscrupulous people
working against you. Avoid at all costs signing important papers in
the north this month even to the extent of not verbally agreeing anything
important as financial loss could take place.Married couples may suffer from sleepless and problematic nights. There
really is nothing you can do except to stay calm and let the energy
- The South
This month sees the star 2 Black coming into the south bringing with
it illness vibrations especially to the heart and the eye. Those who
drive a lot, please take extra care on the road. If you are pregnant
or have stomach problems you should also avoid this area.If you have a bathroom, cloakroom, utility or a room you do not use
much, congratulations! You do not need to do a thing other than to keep
the area quiet, even to the extent of not banging doors. If the south
is a bedroom, kitchen or any important room you spend time in place
a Wu Lou there.
- The Southeast You may find that children struggle with their studies
in this sector. Make them sit somewhere else.If your bedroom is in this part of the house, you may suffer from more
headaches during the month. If you are in business and your office is
in the SE you may find it difficult to communicate with your associates.If this is a frequently used sector, you can keep more fresh flowers
and plants around the area.
I hope you find this September update useful in keeping you informed
of which sector is potentially auspicious or risky. Do not hesitate to
write to me at: email@example.com
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
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.
