What do we do with this information?

In every building, 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 of the home or business. The best Cure is to be aware of the influences each month and know 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. 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.

  • 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 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 the only 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.

Are you really prepared for 2018?

Xuan Kong Flying Stars December 2017:

From 7th December 2017 to 4th January 2018 is the eleventh month Ren Zi (Yang Water Rat) of the Ding You year (Yin Fire Rooster year) with the ruling energy of #7 in the central grid.


In December, we have the monthly #3 enter the north

You must be aware of possible theft, arguments, disputes, hot tempers, loss of wealth and legal problems especially if you have a main door or important room in the north this month.

If your bedroom, office, lounge, main door or other important room is located in north in December and you are unable to move out please read carefully. The good news is you now know this is an inauspicious star and you can do much to dissipate its negative influences for the month, so do not panic at all.

To remedy its effects, use red decorative objects, candles, lamps and lights. A nice simple cure is a red, pink, purple, burgundy (fire colour) floor mat or a table lamp with a red shade.  As we have the visiting metal star here for 2017, this can aggravate the #3 star which makes fire coloured cures a safe bet for the north this month.

If working with traditional cures and enhancers, you would place a Long Zhui Zhenzhu Coiled Dragon or Pai nan Jie Fen Talisman Red Tassel in the north this month.

If you have a main door or an important room like office, lounge or study ensure that documents signed during the month are checked through thoroughly before committing. The influence of a Chen 3 in Period 8 denotes possible arguments, disagreement, back stabbing and in extreme cases, this can result in lawsuits, either as a petitioner or a defendant and also causes loss of wealth.

Either case there will be a loss of time, energy and wealth, so please be careful during this month especially if you have a main door in this area and if you can, try and use another door to enter and leave. You should also hang a Ba Gua mirror with a Chinese i-ching coin on the rear for added protection this month.

To calm interactions:

– Place a light in this area if you have a choice, a lamp with a wooden stand and a peach/red shade is better.

– Do not hang wind chimes of any material in this area this month, especially metal wind chimes as it will worsen matters.

– Take extra security measures for the whole home or business during this month and check smoke alarms.

– Check through everything before signing documents if you have a main door here.

– Try and keep this area quiet and do not disturb with loud noises.

– Beware of backstabbing, as sometimes it is unseen and behind your back and also from someone you thought you knew quite well.

– Most important is not to disturb the ground inside or out.

Remember this is only a passing influence for the month and if you follow all this advice here your month will be just fine.


Kan 1 White Kan (Tang Lang) is a water element and a yang Trigram. It also affects wealth career and luck and because it is timely in period 8 (2004 – 2024) it is considered an auspicious flying star. In December 2017, it has flown in to the northeast which is good as we have the visiting water enhance the annual wood.

This area can also be very good for relationships this month and to enhance you should introduce some metal elements that are round in shape, a traditional enhancer and cure is a brass wu lou or any object that is round in shape and made from a good quality metal like brass copper, steel.

If you activate this area of the home this month it can bring in new opportunities, gains in financial investments, academic achievements and also romance and relationships as peach blossom is very good here.

If this area is a bedroom, office, study lounge or other important room you should place a wu lou or other round metal objects which is auspicious.

Blues, black, grey or charcoal would be a good colour scheme for this room. You can introduce these colours in beddings, throws, lampshades, pillow covers etc. If you have a bed located in this area, remember to place a brass wu-lou beside the bed. Avoid fire colours like red, pink, purple, orange, lilac etc in this area and also avoid candles at all costs although you can place Christmas decorations here.

Enhancement summary and advice.

– A brass Wu-Lou is advisable for a bedroom that falls into this area along with all shades of blue, black, grey or charcoal colours. This is especially so if you are not in good health and if you cannot buy a wu lou place a heavy round object close to your bed but avoid candles or colours red, pink, orange, purple or any fire colours.

– Avoid candles or fire colours like red, pink, purple, orange or burgundy in this area although you can place Christmas decorations here.

– Place creative enhancements like displaying an abacus, calligraphy set, artist tools like canvas, brushes etc this month.


The 5 Yellow (Lian Zhen) star of tragedy is located in the east this month and combined with Sui Po and the Three Killings, this is a very important area to get right in December. It affects the overall luck, virtually all types of illness including many mind related problems with regards to thought process, lack of energy and procrastination. It will not affect anyone in particular in the home as the #5 star does not have a trigram and no yin or yang energy so to speak and this is why the negative aspects of this star are so strong.

Overall a very inauspicious star and needs either cures or avoidance this month in this area otherwise it can cause many problems. If your bedroom, office, lounge, main door or other important room is located in this area and you are unable to move out please read this section carefully.

The 5 Yellow also called ‘Wu Huang or Lian Zhen’ in Chinese, is one of the bad monthly afflictions. It is an extremely unstable star. It has no gender and no trigram and is highly treacherous when disturbed. When disturbed, its malicious influence brings tragedy, sickness, lawsuits and major loss of wealth. Do be careful with it. Stillness together with metal cures can keep its negative influences at bay and you must avoid using fire energy like reds and candles in this area this month.

You should place a Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon and also place more metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative influence.

You MUST NEVER disturb this area inside or out with lots of drilling or knocking activities.

You must not place red objects, bright lights, candles or red coloured furnishing this month. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours white, silver, gold or copper in the way of a floor mat, cushions, throws, tablecloth or such like. You can also use dark blue or black if you prefer.

If your bathroom, cloakroom, en-suite, guest room or a large cupboard is located here, this is good for you, because these areas are not used much and therefore the negative power is not activated.

To calm interactions:

– Avoid playing loud music in this area of the home or room.

– Do not decorate your room with red or earth colours this month. Grey, blue or white beddings and curtains are good colours to use temporarily.

– Place a set of six Chinese coins tied in a row with red ribbon this month

– Place a Brass Wu-Lou in this corner of the room if this is your bedroom.

– Metal objects such as six Chinese metal coins tied in a red ribbon and/or a brass Dragon can be placed in this corner too. Do not to use red dragons.

– Do not place red objects, burning candles or triangular shaped furnishing in this sector.

– Most of all, avoid disturbing this area at all costs. Any form of renovations that needs to be done, plan it for another month. It is worth keeping this in mind.

– A Pi Yao in a gold colour is very effective at not only reducing the bad earth but by also protecting your wealth for the month in this area.

– Replace or at the very least cleanse your Ba Gua mirror in this area especially if you have a door here.

– If you have a main door in this area make sure you oil the hinges and try not to let it bang shut and oil squeaky hinges.

– If you use a fan or other machines that create noise or vibration try and avoid placing it in this part of a room this month.


Ch’ien 6 White The star of Heaven star (Wu Qu) is a compassionate money star and a yang Trigram and it affects the lungs, large intestines and head and can impact the Patriarch (eldest male) although on the whole it is considered an auspicious star.

The Ch’ien metal 6 is a conditional star and is auspicious in Period 8 (2004 – 2024). It governs wealth, leadership, success and ambition and is very good for politicians, leaders and anyone involved in the jewellery business.

Those who have main doors or offices in this area may enjoy excellent business and career success. However, whilst 6 White represents accomplishment, if the #6 monthly star is located in a bedroom it can cause problems with the throat, and/or legs and also problems with breathing especially for the eldest male although they are minor problem and nothing to worry about if you follow the advice here. If you do have a bedroom in this area place some blue, black, grey or charcoal cloth such as a rug or duvet covers to dissipate its energy.

Enhancers and cures if needed:

– If this is your bedroom, a shade of blue or black in your furnishing or décor may help with health. A blue painting (not water scene) may also do.

– Place a set of six coins in a row in this area; these are very traditional and powerful cures.

– Real quartz crystal is very good in this area for the month as are faceted crystal spheres.

– Avoid colours red and candles in this area this month unless you are placing Christmas decorations.


Kun 2 Black (Ju Men) is an earth star and a yin Trigram and has flown in to the south for December 2017. Overall, this is very inauspicious and needs either cures or avoidance this month in this area otherwise it can cause many problems, especially when paired with the Annual #5 yellow.

If your bedroom, office, lounge, main door or other important room is located in this area this month and you are unable to move out please read this section carefully. The good news is you now know this is an inauspicious star and you can do much to dissipate its negative influences for the month, so do not panic at all.

Try and keep this area of your building as quiet as possible and avoid building work or renovations this month. If this part of your building is a bathroom, utility room, guest bedroom or other less important room do not panic, this is great news for you and no cures are needed this month.

If your front door, bedroom, office, lounge or other well-used room is located in this area this month this will inevitably activate its malicious effects, so read on…

This star affects the health of those under its influence bringing with it wealth problems, sickness, disease, bad luck, stress, stomach and digestive problems, bloated feeling, gossip, back stabbing, family harmony and distress.

The 2 Black in Period 8 is an untimely star and hence its influence will be of a negative nature. You must place a Wu Lou and six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon, metal singing bowl and also place more round metal decorative objects (provided they are not menacing looking, round shape metal is good) to dissipate its negative influence in this part of your home or room.

Avoid triangular or sharp shapes in this area. Ladies expecting should try and avoid using a bedroom if it is located in this area. If there is no choice implement the necessary cures. You should also sleep with the crown of your head in your personal Tien Yi direction. Males who spend a lot of time in this area should be careful of what they eat this month and a good time to think about a lifestyle change.

Place a brass Wu-Lou beside your bed. The brass Wu-Lou (also known as a calabash) gives elemental support to this area this month and also symbolises good health and dissipates the negative energy of the #2 star.

More importantly, do not decorate this room with red fire colours or triangle shapes items and most important avoid burning candles or leaving bright fiery coloured lights on for too long during the month. The most important cures to place in this area are a set of six Chinese coins tied with red ribbon.

Do not undertake any form of noisy renovations or re-decorative work in this part of your house or office. Nor should you disturb the ground by digging, building foundations or conduct any maintenance work with any noisy equipment in this area inside or outside your property or garden this month.

Once disturbed, this affliction will bring about three types of misfortunes financial loss, sickness and arguments.

If you already have your annual cures and enhancers in place, this is very good.


– Hang six Chinese coins tied in red ribbon.

– You can use any metal ornament as long as it is not sharp or aggressive looking, and believe it or not a good cure is a round metal dog bowl or weight lifters weights.

– A brass wealth ingot is good for protecting wealth.

– Place a gold coloured three legged Toad with an i-ching coin underneath.

– Place a Wu Lou and/or other metal ornaments to dissipate the negative earth.

– A metal singing bowl is very good as is a stainless steel Dog bowl.

– Avoid using red colour in this room and refrain from displaying triangle shape or fiery pictures.

– Avoid candles or bright lights at all costs. Check or upgrade smoke alarms and other fire prevention methods.

– Place a Ba Gua mirror in this area outside this month.

– Naturally not as powerful but round metal shapes are an alternative to using Feng Shui items but avoid sharp or menacing looking metal objects.


Sun 4 green Wen Qu romance and literacy star is a wood star and in December, it has flown in to the southwest.

It governs romance, career, travel, creative, academic and artistic talents, wisdom and intelligence as well as self-development. With the wood of the #4 star flying in for the month, we can expect a lovely energy from here as it creates a lovely peach blossom if activated correctly with the right enhancers.

Whilst this star is very auspicious if you have any poison arrows like lamp posts, pylons or large corners of house’s pointing toward this area consider hanging a ba gua wealth protection mirror outside pointing toward the offending object as the #4 star can bring both wanted and unwanted romantic opportunities to the household if the cures are not put in place.

Having a door in this area can bring in new opportunities and lots of travel and perfect for a company that deals with travel or printing. Do not use fire or metal in this area or colours white, silver this month. Do not worry if you have these colours already just introduce colours blue or black in the way of a floor mat, cushions, tablecloth or such like.

Couples with a bedroom in this location can also enjoy good relationships. There may also be a chance of producing intelligent children. If you want to enhance this further place a statue of Kwan Yin in this area of your bedroom.

Another traditional way to enhance fertility is to display peanuts in shells (groundnuts) or any seed products like black or red melon seeds (Gua zi). In Mandarin, peanuts are called ‘hua-sheng’ and for the Chinese, this word is onomatopoeic in that the sound of it means the birth of many children.

You should display them anywhere in the bedroom and of course be careful if anyone in the home suffers with nut allergies.

Avoid fire element and colours red, pink or purple. Good colours are blue, grey or black. If you wish to enhance areas of creativity and academic achievements, place or hang moving objects to enhance the Ch’i of this sector, do not use wind chimes. Keep area semi active with windows occasionally open.

Cures and enhancers summary

– Use blue in your décor if this is your office or bedroom.

– For office and studies, place a task light and a crystal globe on the work desks. Blue items can be added on the desk e.g. blue paper, blue books etc

– Avoid displaying metal objects here especially large heavy ornaments.

– Fresh flowers or small pots of green leafy or flowering plants can be displayed in this spot of the house to lift the qi. Blue or green flowers are a good choice.

– If you have mandarin ducks this is a good area to have them and any other symbols of romance like hugging couples etc.

– Place photos of loved ones or images of love to enhance relationships or attract new love. This can be photos, paintings or statues, make sure there is always a pair in the image.

– For romance a Dragon headed Tortoise or Mandarin Ducks are very good


Li 9 Purple  (You Bi) Li 9 Purple is a fire star and a yin trigram and considered a star of future wealth and in December, it has flown in to the west where Tai Sui is located so care will be needed.

If you disturb this area this month you may cause problems for the middle daughter and it could affect heart, stomach or blood related. If you have any poison arrows like lamp post, pylons or large comers of house pointing toward this area consider hanging a flat ba gua mirror outside pointing toward the offending object. We have a bit of Yin and Yang with the annual and monthly star in the west in December as the visiting fire star will weaken the annual wood star although the annual star will also enhance the visiting fire star.

This is a good area in general especially for those in studies. Couples with a bedroom in this location can also enjoy good relationships but please be sure to keep noise levels low as we have Tai Sui located here for the year.

To enhance:

– Healthy green leafy plants or blue flowering plants such as violets are good for this area.

– Fresh flowers displayed here will bring positive qi too.

This is a lovely influence for the month and if you follow all this advice here your month will be just fine.


Ken 8 White Zuo Fu is an earth star and a yang Trigram and is the most auspicious governing flying star of the lower era of the sexagenarian cycle of the flying and in December, this has flown in to the northeast.

If you work with symbols, quartz crystals, crystal balls or hanging faceted crystals are very good for the this area this month. The #8 star also governs relationships so a nice romance enhancer is a pair of Mandarin Ducks.

Whilst wealth is forecast this month for this area, beware of overworking as this can cause you health problems if you have a bedroom or office here. The additional work will bring a good income but be careful of your health; in particular stress related resulting in high blood pressure or kidney problems.

Do not place heavy metal in this area of your home or office this month, as it will weaken the good earth.  If you already have this in place for the annual #2, I would recommend leaving it in place as it is better to weaken a bad star than weaken a good star.

To enhance:

– A red three-legged toad can be placed here. Make sure the toad is facing into the house and not towards the door and the coin is never taken out of his mouth.

– A romance enhancer is a pair of Mandarin Ducks in this area this month.


Tui 7 Red  (Po Jun) robbery star is a metal star and a yin trigram and known as the mischievous Po Jun #7 argumentative red star is a negative influence in Period 8 and has flown in to the centre for December. The trigram Tui is also known as ’Broken Soldier’. This is a fighting star which can cause problems if left alone, the #7 Red indicates a high risk of burglary, deception, copyright theft, gossip and back stabbing this month.

This area is not good for writers, artist or children studying and especially so for the youngest daughter although cures can be placed to dissipate the negative influence this month so do not worry.

If you have a door that is used often in this area or even a window you should be looking to update security, smoke alarms and checking electrics. Please take this advice seriously as I have been doing this a long time and I know when this combination meets it can cause many problems this month.

Sorry to harp on but please take extra security measures especially if you have a front, back or side door in this sector. Make sure doors and windows are fastened securely before leaving the house. Do not display valuable items on windowsills, which may attract the interests of passers-by.

It pays to be wise and avoid taking too many risks for there may be unscrupulous people working against you. There are indications of misunderstandings, pressure and business rivalries that could also lead to losses. Keep this area quiet and doors and windows kept closed this month.

Good colours are blue or black. Avoid earth and fire colours (temporary Christmas decorations will be ok although not too many) and quartz crystals. If you have an office or door in this area be careful of people trying to deceive you, robbery, arguments and loss of wealth, always look at the very small print and be careful as this star normally causes problems with people you know and thought you could trust.


– You should also use more blue, grey, black or charcoal colours in your decoration. You can introduce the colour with cushions, rugs, bed covers or doormats.

– Do not use anything of fire element or colours red to control it as this may aggravate it; temporary Christmas decorations will be ok.

– Avoid candles in this area at all costs.

– Install or service/upgrade smoke alarms and security systems.

– Do not hang metal wind chimes here.

  1. correction…the holiday decorations newsletter says no candles in North, but the monthly updates says to place candles in North. So, I’m confused about the Centre and the Northeast, as well as wondering about the other areas where there seems to be a conflict of information…thank you again.

    1. Hi Janice,

      The monthly analysis is written with the annual stars in mind where as the Christmas decoration article was only written with the monthly stars in mind although I have updated both articles now with the annual and monthly Flying stars in mind.

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention and have a fantastic Christmas.

      Kind regards,

  2. Hello,

    I just received your online newsletter as to where to place Holiday decorations in 2017…however, the descriptions do not match the suggestions for 7 December-4 January flying stars for the month in 2017/18–candles in the North, Northeast, and Centre? But, the December updates say to avoid candles in those areas… I am a bit confused…thank you!
