What is a Flying Star in Feng Shui?

I wanted to write this post on Flying Star Feng Shui for a Long time, just never got around to it. I see so much confusion out there in the Feng Shui world, with the fast food feng shui and put theories, it is very frustrating.

With the flying star feng shui,  admit it took me a little time to understand it myself. So today’s blog post is to simply help you understand what the heck is a Flying Star in Feng Shui.

Here is my explanation.

First of all, a Flying Star is …not a star.

Second,  here is the Wiki -pedia version

Xuan Kong Flying Star feng shui or Xuan Kong Fei Xing[1] is one of the disciplines in Feng Shui, and is an integration of the principles of Yin Yang, the interactions between the five elements, the eight trigrams, the Lo Shu numbers, and the 24 Mountains, by using time, space and objects[2] to create an astrological chart to analyze positive auras and negative auras of a building.[3]–   From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Are you Confused?

So to summarize a Flying Star in Classical Feng Shui is a wonderful discipline in Feng shui that uses the lou shu Luo Shu grid square to calculate the timeliness of energy and it’s movements. You can chase these stars on a Yearly, monthly daily and even hourly basis.

The Basics of Flying Star Feng Shui

Flying Star Feng Shui is one of the disciplines in Chinese Astrology which incorporates the principles of the 5 elements, the 8 trigrams, the Lo Shu numbers, and the 24 Mountains to analyze the ups and downs of energy in an environment at a particular time. Due to its incorporation of the time factor, it is one of the most effective and widely used Feng Shui practices which brings and speedy and accurate results.

The principle of Flying Star Feng Shui is that each number (stars) in the 9 grid Lo Shu square is endowed with specific qualities whereby it brings good or bad luck.

The auspicious stars bring wealth and well-being, so areas with these stars should be used for main areas such as living rooms or bedrooms, whilst the inauspicious areas should be avoided or used for storage or remedied accordingly.

Just like the Feng Shui for your house, there are good areas and bad areas.

Here are the Good Areas or the beneficial flying stars are #1, #4, #6 & #8 . these bring auspicious energy to us during this period of time.

The Bad or Unauspicious Flying stars for this period are the #2, #3, #5 & #7. These are the flying stars that you should be wary of and we try to remedy by using the  Salt Water cure recipe.

The #9 by itself is auspicious, being the Future Prosperity Star in Period 8, but acts as a Multiplying Star when combined with other stars, meaning it will magnify good luck as well as bad luck.
