Feng Shui for 2015
Flying Stars Feng Shui is an ancient application that takes the reading of energy in the home or office to the next level. It is a science that takes years to master. Yet, this information, as it is laid out, is easy enough for anyone to apply but it is highly recommended that you have a consultation to ensure proper placement, design, and flow of chi to ensure optimal results.
Most cures can be found on yogawithnitya.com and questions are welcomed ~
South (142.5 – 217.5) is the location and direction of the Three Killings in 2016
You may sit facing the South direction only if this is one of your personal good directions, if not, please do not sit with your back to the South in 2016 or you may find yourself coming in to contact with unscrupulous people working against you or you may encounter undue gossip and back stabbing during the year.
CURE: A Metal Hotei Buddha.
Southwest (232.5 – 247.5) is where Tai Sui (Grand Duke of Jupiter) resides in 2016
Like the Three Killings, Tai Sui does not like to be disturbed. The effects of Tai Sui can be good or bad depending on the annual flying stars that coincide with its location.
CURE: Place a Guan Zhong Tai Sui plaque to pay respect and appease the Deity. By paying respect to Grand Duke Jupiter, we can weaken or avoid problems.
Sui Po is located in the North East in 2016 (The year breaker)
Sui Po year breaker is directly opposite Tai Sui Grand Duke, which for 2016 is North East. You should treat this area the same as the other annual afflictions with no ground-breaking work, renovations or any noisy activities. If disturbed this area can and normally will cause immediate health problems especially for the youngest male, so please be very careful.
CURE: Display a Yi Fan Feng Shun or a Chinese golden ship
If you have to carry out work or emergency repairs in the North East hang a six hollow metal rod wind chime between the house and where the work is being carried out.
Kan Water #1 in the Woody South East – Represents the ear, kidneys, and reproductive system. This is Water moving into Wood which is a harmonious, nurturing relationship. The Water feeding the Wood will bring new opportunities, financial gains, and academic achievements. If you have a main door, bedroom, office or any other important room in the South East of your home or office you will benefit greatly. To enhance academic study, you should encourage your child to study in the South East part of their bedroom; you can also place a gold Tsai Shen Yeh statue as he protects wealth and also creates wealth in 2016. Tsai Shen Yeh must be placed in the South East of whatever room is used as he is a protector and enhancer of wealth in 2016.
CURES to Enhance:
• AVOID clashing color like Fire Red, Fuchsia, Orange, Violet and Rose, Earth tones like tan, brown, and yellow, black, white and gray
• Support the Water with shades of BLUE as in throw pillows, rugs, bed linens, artwork that shows boats on the water (but not in a bedroom), silky flowing fabrics too
• Place a Brass Pagoda for good studies on a desk in this area
• For money luck place a single Gold ingot on a piece of Blue fabric
• If this is a front door, use it regularly and place a Blue door mat with healthy potted plants (if blooming, choose Blue flowers) or shrubs near the entrance

Kun Earth #2 is in the Earthy Center is connected to Illness, Stomach and digestive issues, bloating, arguments, gossip, and distress. The Earthy nature of the 2 Star is at home in the Earthy Center. The best rooms to have in the Center in 2016 are rooms such as a bathroom, utility room, pantry, guest bedroom, cloakroom, dressing room, storage room or other room that is not used for long periods in the day. If the Center of your home or office falls in a room such as a bedroom, office, kitchen or other well-used room, this will inevitably activate its malicious effects. This is especially so for people who are a Gua #1, 3 or 4.
CURES to Dispel:
• Place a Brass Wu Lou by the bedside for good health and a Salt Water Cure to absorb any residual toxicity
• If a front door (in a home that is U shaped) place 2 Fu Dogs on either side of the front stoop along with a Ba-Gua mirror on the front door to deflect the negative chi – Use an alternate entrance if at all possible

Sun Wood #4 is in the Metal West and motivates Intelligence, Academic Achievement, Relationship, Happiness, Travel, Self-Development, and Creativity.

CURES to Enhance:
• For couples with a bedroom in the East place a Kwan Yin statue for improved relations. For increased fertility place a bowl of unshelled peanuts.
• Be careful in months when visiting stars #2 and #5 show up as they will wreak havoc with this Fiery 9 – place a string of 6 Chinese coins along the wall in a row in June and September 2016. Also if you have a room that is in the East and North East where the 5 Star is dancing with the 9 Star there is greater chance for fire, explosions, and catastrophe – use extreme caution and follow the needs for the 5 Star and forget trying to activate the 9 Star. If this falls into the area of a deck with a fire pit or grill, a fireplace, or stove avoid using at all cost.
