February 4th ensure you have all your Feng Shui cures and treatments in place to welcome in the New Year. Notice this first month that all the visiting Stars are in their innate locations adding more Extra to this EXTRA month!
Depress – The 3 Star in the Center is visited by the 5 Star. This is a shitty way to start the year, seriously, the 5 STAR?! UGH! This is the WORST combination because the 3 Star is so weakened in 2024 sitting in the Earthy Center and we are using RED/ Fire to mitigate this which is great because Fire will continue to diffuse the argumentative, confrontational 3 Star. BUT in February with the 5 Earth Star we DO NOT want RED or Fire because that will FEED the 5 Star and activate potenital accidents, illness, even death. CAUTION. Best Colors/ Decor: Neutral tan, white, cream Avoid: Red, Fuchsia, Violet, Tangerine, Rose, Red, Water and Metal, white, gray, black, Earthy yellow, brown, and tan. CURES: REMOVE RED but keep your annual cures of a Happy Hotei sitting on 7 Chinese Red envelopes. That cure protects yoru relationships and wealth so it still stands as being effective.
Activate – The 1 Star which in Period 9 is the new Star of future wealth, and abundance is visiting the North where the 8 Star is for 2024. The 8 Star in Period 9 is no longer the king of wealth and abundance, but in taking a step back there is still plenty of potential for prospering. Unfortunately the 8 Star is Earth in the Watery North and there is no way to mitigate. The 1 Water Star kind of adds another obstacle to the 8 Star feeling a bit defeated. The 8 Star is also where we can place a Love Altar. Best Colors/ Decor: Wood furnishings, add some Earth tones like brown or yellow. Have some healthy plants here too. Avoid: Water and colors of Blue, Metal and colors of black, white, and gray, and Fire colors like red. CURES: Place 8 Silk Yellow Flowers in a RED Vase for abundance. If this is a front entrance, hang 8 Chinese coins on red string from the door knob. Set up a Love Altar wih a pair of birds, 2 rose quartz crystals, and a favorite picture or two of you and your sweetie. The 1 Star brings the potential for a windfall. For February add a single Gold Ingot to the table or place where you have the 8 silk flowers displayed.
Activate– The 6 Star is in the North East for 2024 and in Period 9, the 6 Star continues to be a Star of wealth and success. In February the NE is visited by the 8 Star magnifying the probability for great success. This is one of the BEST directions for this month and very auspicious to have a main entrance or office here. Keep this area active and well lit. Best Colors/ Decor: Metal furnishings, Black, white, gray, brown, and a pop of yellow. Bring this into your décor with rugs, pillows, and art. Also add crystals, pottery, and other Earthy materials. Avoid: Water, Blue, Green, Wood, Red, Fuchsia, Violet, Tangerine, Rose, Red. No personal or family photos. CURES: Place 6 Gold ingots in a round yellow or gold/metal plate in a prominent place. If this is an entrance, hang a string of 6 Chinese coins on Black string from the door knob. For February you can add 8 citrine crystal balls on an Earthenware square dish or 8 Chinese Coins piled by the 6 Ingots. Money, Money, MONEY!
Neutralize– The 1 Star is in the East and is our new Future Wealth Star in Period 9. This is where we imagine all that we want to manifest in 2024. The 3 Star is a caution to hold off on making any plans or implementing anything in February as the 3 Star brings conflict into any deals, communicaiton, and relationships. The 3 Star is nasty in Period 9, a serious battle ready to be waged. Chill out and wait for a better time. Best Colors: Wood and all shades of green, blue, landscapes, blue floral designs, leaf patterns, plants and trees. Add something Blue like a throw blanket or pillows. Avoid: All other colors, especially Earth tones like yellow, brown, tan, peach, pale pink, and also Fire like red, violet, hot pink, and orange. No Metal like white, gray, or black, and Water. CURE: Bring back your Family photos and display them here. Display yoru Vision Board of everything you want to create and manifest in 2024. Add a round Metal bowl and next to that put a single Gold Ingot on a blue round plate or piece of fabric. With the 3 Star here, caution to avoid any conversation, confrontations, or interactions with others. Your best cure for the 3 Star is mindfulness, timing, and taking a humble step back.
DEPRESS – The 2 Star is in the South East where the Dragon holds reign for 2024. The 2 Star in Period 9 is going through the BIGGEST transformation of all the 9 Stars. The 2 Star is no longer the Sickness Star but is becoming a positive chi. BUT we DO NOT want to feed this with Fire, nor put it to work with Metal, but rather focus on nourishing it with its own Earthy element. Sitting in the Woodsy SE offers no solutions, just like the beleagured 8 Star in the North. Therefore, we treat this Star just like the 8 Star, we nourish it. For February, the 4 Star flies in and offers a bit of relief. BUT the 4 Star in Period 9 is weakened and needs Water but that isn’t available in the SE with the 2 Star. Wait this out. PLUS this is the home of the GRAND DUKE, one of the 3 Afflictions. 2024 requires we keep this part of our home and property QUIET, NO CONSTRUCTION, LOUD NOISES (video games, loud TV, drumming, etc.). Best Colors: Stick with the innate color of this direction, Green with landscapes, floral or leaf designs, prints, art. Healthy lush plants. Then throw in some Yellow accents in pillows, art, rugs, or linens/towels. Not a lot, just a touch will do. Avoid : RED or Fiery colors and Fire itself as in a fire pit or grill, stove, and fireplace. Water with Blues, and of course Metal with colors of white, gray, and black. Keep this room quiet and serene. CURE: To appease the Grand Duke display a Tai Sui plaque and a pair of Pi Yao beasties facing into 105-135 degrees on the compass. You can also display a Gold Dragon to honor our Dragon Year. If this is an office, put 3 Brass Immortals at your back. If this is a main entrance, place a pair of Gold Fu Dogs flanking the front steps/ entranceway. If this is a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. If this is a bedroom, put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and put a Brass Wu Lou Health Gourd on your bedside table. VACATE THIS AS A BEDROOM AND AVOID AS AN ENTRANCE if at all possible. DO NOT FACE South East, Do NOT TRAVEL or point your head when sleeping in the direction of the SE.
DEPRESS– The 7 Star is in the South is one of the WORST directions for 2024. If this is a bedroom or main entrance try to use another room for sleeping and entering your home. There is a real risk to safety and finances as well as your reputation. The combination of Fire from the South with the Metal of the 7 Star suggests violence, explosions, car accidents, gun shots or war. February adds a dangerous cocktail with the newly invigorated 9 Star ruled by Fire. The 9 Star is at home in the South and this is truly an area to avoid. Add to all of this that the South is where we have one of the 3 Afflictions, the Three Killings. CHECK DOORS AND SECURITY – DO NOT store guns, knives, or any other weapons, even something like a chainsaw in the South. Much like the North and South East, the mitigating element does not work here. Best Colors: Black, white, gray, and even a splash of Blue Avoid: Earth tones like Brown, Tan, and Cream with live healthy plants. Fire as in Red, Violet, Hot Pink, and Orange, Water, Green, and Wood. CURE: Black, Gray or white for rug, linens, artwork, etc. Fill a black dish with rice and set a Chinese Coin with a bloodstone crystal on top to protect finances. If this is Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. Three Killings Cure is a Brass Dragon Headed Turtle (never have this facing you) with a plant growing in clean, clear water.
Activate- The 9 Star is in the South West is our NEW wealth Star ruled by Fire and February brings the 2 Star which is at home in the SW. This is one of the BEST directions for February. I am not concerned with th 2 Star bringing health issues, but since this is in transition, please use caution. Best Colors: Purple, violet, lavender, tan, brown, and cream. Worst Colors: All shades of BLUE, Earth like Yellow, Fire, Red, Hot Pink, Orange, Metal, White, black, gray, Water, Wood, and Green colors. CURE: Display prominently 9 purple silk flowers in a purple or green vase. You can also find on the Feng Shui Mall website a special Baoyou Zusui Master Cure specific for the 9 Star in 2024. For the 2 Star, I would just monitor your health and welfare. Be gentle with this area of your home.
DEPRESS – The 5 Star is in the West is one of the worst directions for 2024. For February we have the 7 Star flying in adding insult to injury, literally. Be really careful of this area of your home and property. Look out for safety and security. There is potential violence, injury with sharp objects, surgery, and accidents. KEEP THIS AREA QUIET WITH NO CONSTRUCTION OR LOUD BANGING NOISES. Also keep this room dark and used minimally. Best Colors: Metal and the colors of White, Gray, and Black. Keep the design very Zen. Add pops of Blue. Avoid: Bring in EARTH tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, crystals, and pottery. Wood, colors of Green, Water, Fire and Fire colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange and Violet. CURE: If this is a main entrance, place a pair of Gold Fu Dogs flanking the front steps/ entranceway. If this is Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. If this is a bedroom, put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and put a Brass Wu Lou Health Gourd on your bedside table. VACATE THIS AS A BEDROOM AND AVOID AS AN ENTRANCE if at all possible. Best cure is a 6 rod Metal windchime outside or a chiming clock inside.
Neutralize–The 4 Star is in the North West is another conflicted area as the 4 Star is no longer our creative, genius, lover Star. In fact, the 4 Star is so embattled inthe Metal NW, the best thing to do is add Blue which will motivate the chi to be more agreeable. Helping this along is the visiting 6 Star in February. The 6 Star will be motivated by the presence of Blue to bring some wealth or success protential. BUT this is the direction of the Dog, so the NW is the other of the 3 Afflictions, the Sui Po which is the enemy of the Dragon. If you are born in the Day or Year of the Dog or Dragon DO NOT have this as you bedroom, office, or main entrance. Do Not face South East but it is OK to face NW and put your back to the SE. KEEP THIS AREA QUIET AND UNDISTURBED WITH CONSTRUCTION OR LOUD NOISES. Best Colors: Blue, not Water, just lots of yummy shades of Blue. Furnishing can still be Metal but minimize that presence to avoid conflict. AVOID: Metal , White, Gray, and Black, Earth and colors of Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, Water and shades of Blue and Green, no Wood, and NO FIRE of any kind not even candles, colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange, and Violet. CURE: If a front door hang a Ba-Gua mirror to deflect the negative chi and flank the entrance with a pair of Metal Fu Dogs. If a bedroom put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and a Wu Lou Health gourd by the bedside. To protect relationships, put a Chinese Coin with the 4 characters facing up with a Rose Quartz crystal on top. 4 stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a Blue vase is another cure option. No family photos.
BEST DIRECTIONS: North, North East, South West, and possibly the East
Areas of Caution: North West (Sui Po), South (Three Killings), West, Center, and South East (Grand Duke).

Flying Stars is an advanced system of Feng Shui that has been used since the times of Ancient China. It recognizes the pattern of energy impressed upon every home and building the year it was built or last renovated. Think of it like a building or home’s birth day. It is why you see some houses falling apart, covered in vines, and deteriorating. When the chi is gone, the house is no longer viable for living in. Therefore it is so important to update your home to the current Period. Each Period is 20 years long and we have been in Period 8, a time of wealth and abundance since 2004. We are now in Period 9. At the least, following the annual and monthly Flying Stars allows you to dance with the ever changing chi so that you are in flow with life.
