For those who are not yet familiar with it, Flying Star is base on the Lo Shu Feng Shui.
The Lo Shu is compose of a square with 9 small square with corresponding numbers which are numbers 1-9. The numbers are always arranged in such a way that when you add them whether vertically or horizontally it will always add up to the sum of 15. It is very much the same with Sudoku. Only the Lo Shu was discovered and formulated more than 7,000 years ago.
It is believed that the Lo Shu was revealed by a Mystical Dragon Tortoise to a revered Monk. This became one of the basis or theoretical guide of Feng Shui. Each number is has a designated star that corresponds to a certain luck or affliction which is called flying star.
It’s important for us to be familiar with this so that we’ll know whether we benefit from a specific auspicious star or are afflicted with a negative star.
Let me present to you the 2011 Metal Rabbit Annual Flying Chart:
1. The Number One (1) which is also know as the White Star/Victory Star/Mentor Star flies to the Northeast.
This star bring good career luck and helps you overcome obstacles. This also brings in the opportunity and mentor luck. If your room/office/work area is in the northeast, it will be good for you to enhance this luck by putting a picture of a successful person that you admire, or by putting an image of the Great Happy Buddha.
2. The Number Two (2) Star plagues the South
I say plagues the South because the Number Two Star brings in a lot of health problems, that’s why its also called the Illness Star. People whose bedroom, or office, or work area is in the South section had to be careful. This star is specially bad for the bedroom. To counter this star it will help to put Wu Lou/Holy Gourd beside your bed. While its not as bad in the office it will still help if you can also place a smaller Wu Lou or Holy Gourd on your table. You have to know also that while your office or work table is not in the South section but while working you face South, it will be very good if you can also place a Wu Lou or wear the Sau word, or a Peach Fruit pendant.
3. The Number Three (3) Star which is also known as the Quarrelsome Star lands on the North.
What does it mean? It means that if your bedroom happens to be on the North part of the house, you’ll find yourself getting into more arguments and/or people who are backbiting/back fighting you. To counter this it will be nice for you have a Fireball in your bedroom and also it will help a lot if you wear a Fireball pendant. In the office it will be good to have a Fireball on your table.
4. The Number Four (4) Stars flies to the Southwest section.
If your bedroom is in the Southwest section of the house, you’ll definitely have a blooming love life. This is because the Number Four Star is also known as the Romance Star. However, this may also bring in a third party into the relationship if you’re a couple whose bedroom is in the Southwest section of the house. For single people, to enhance this luck, get a pair of Mandarin Ducks, preferably in pink and place it in your room. For married couple to prevent a third party in your relationship get a wood fan and place it at the foot of the bed. Normally, the best remedy for this is to have an image of Rooster, however, since the Rooster creates a bad feng shui this year, it’s not advisable to use its image for the lunar year 2011. In the office this would mean that your relationship with your officemates will be more harmonious. To enhance this in the office it will be nice for you to pink crystal point on your table.
5. The Number Five (5) Stars flies into the East.
This is the most fear star of all, because this brings in the Five Yellow Star! For those who are not familiar with this star please refer to my previous article entitled ‘Understanding Tai Sui/Grand Duke Jupiter, Five Yellow Star and San Sha/3 Killings’. Briefly put this star brings severe misfortune. So if your bedroom, office, work area happens to be in the East my first recommendation is for you to vacate this area, don’t make any renovations, and avoid playing loud music, or having parties in this area. If vacating the area/room is not possible make sure you place a Five-Element Pagoda. If you can get one that has a mantra on it the better. For people whose bedroom, office, work area or even if you are working facing the East it will be nice to wear a 5-Element Pagoda pendant or carry the Five-Element Pagoda keychain. As mentioned in my previous blogs I prefer the pendant over the keychain.
6. The Number Six (6) Star also known as the Big Auspicious or Heaven Star flies to the SouthEast.
The stars brings in a lot of windfall luck or unexpected luck, on top of that it brings in the star of authority luck which manifest by making the person who benefits in this luck by being more powerful and enjoys respect. For houses whose main door faces the SouthEast will also greatly benefit from this star. To enhance this luck place the image of the Eight (8) Immortal Gods in the SouthEast section of your house, and office or work area if they are in the SouthEast section of the building. It is not advisable to put the image of the Eight Immortal Gods in your bedroom. However, in replacement of the 8 Immortal Gods one can instead place the 8 Auspicious Objects or Ruyi, both as an item place in the bedroom or worn as a pendant.
7. The Number Seven (7) Star known as the Robbery Star afflicts the Center.
All the Center bedroom, offices, work area, or houses that are in the center of a subdivision are afflicted with the number 7 or robbery star which brings loss, violence, and bloodshed. People who are in these rooms or house may be vulnerable to being robbed off from idea, opportunity, or maybe cheated which may result to financial loss. At its worst, the star may even bring physical danger. It is very important to counter this star by placing a double – horned rhinoceros or rhinoceros with elephant in the afflicted areas. People who stays in these rooms or houses can also wear a double-horned rhinoceros pendant.
8. The Number Eight (8) Star also known as the Prosperity or Wealth Star lands in the Northwest.
If your room or office is in the northwest, expect a lot of wealth or prosperity luck specially if you enhance this star properly. It will be nice to put 9 Crystals Balls in this area or an auspicious water fall. However, you have to make sure that this area doesn’t house the kitchen, wash area, or toilet because it will draw away all the auspiciousness that the star brings and makes it really bad for you.
9. Lastly the Number Nine (9) Star, which is also known Sovereign Prosperity Star or Multiplying Star flies into the West section.
This star brings recognition and permanent wealth to the people whose rooms, office, or workplace are in the West section. If the main door of your house is also in the West it will bring recognition and permanent wealth luck. Permanent wealth luck means this is the time for you to look for a job or change career, or put up your own business. It is not something that you get overnight, but it is something that may help generate regular income or bigger income.
It is also called as the Multiplying Star because it has the ability to multiply what the energy of the section it occupies. This means if you have good inner energy it will also multiply that energy.
To enhance this luck it will be nice to display images of the Wealth deities. You can also wear the mystic knot to enhance this luck if you are occupying a room in this section of the house or office.
