The Flying Stars is an advanced system of Feng Shui used for thousands of years. It recognizes the pattern of energy impressed upon every home and building the year it was built. Think of it like a building birthday. 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 will shift into Period 9 in 2024. I have a lot to say about this mighty shift that will impact every home and building in the world. At the least, following the annual and monthly Flying Stars allows you to dance with the ever changing chi. Know best rooms and worst rooms to activate and to depress.

Check out the Nitya Living YouTube Channel for Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology videos. Here is an in depth overview from Lydia Nitya Griffith.
April 5th is a shift into a Yang Wood Dragon and Dragon is Yang Earth with a little Water and Wood, this is the wet Earth that is growing with flowers and grasses. The Dragon is a leader, naturally takes charge and both the Tiger and Dragon are extroverted, action oriented creatures. There is an element of the mysterious, the enigmatic that inspires wonder and curiosity when in the presence of a Dragon person. So we take these qualities into our own lives in the weeks ahead, layered with the annual Tiger and we see this: An invitation to be a visionary, to watch for the right timing to take action, to feel motivated and passionate about what is happening in your work, in your life, and with your Self. Dragon can also pout, demand with stomping feet, overpower with all that enthusiasm, speak too fast and pay the price, or go overboard. So like the Tiger is teaching us in 2022, be mindful, seek balance, know timing is everything as far as knowing when to speak and when to take action. What mystical, magical carpet rise are you about to embark on?
DEPRESS – The 5 Star is in the Center for 2022 and April brings the 9 Star. The Earthy Center is essentially considered a trapped Star placement but with many homes now with open concept designs, it is even harder to contain and work with the energies when they become a giant soup. It is imperative that NO NOISE disrupt this volatile energy. All of 2022 it is like a bomb waiting to detonate in the Center of every home, building, office, store, etc. If this is a bathroom, a closet, or storage room then you are luckier than someone who has a furnace, water heater, or important room here in the Center. Every imaginable upset is more likely to erupt when and if this area is disturbed. Bankruptcy, illness, losses, deaths, etc. It is the worst of the worst. The 9 Star is FIRE and feeds the Earthy 5. This can suggest even greater volatility for the month ahead. Take heed. CURE: AVOID RED, FIRE, Hot Colors, Wood, BLUES, Water, GREEN colors, and plants, ALL Earth tones like tan, brown, yellow, peach, rust, china, crystals, rocks, etc. Focus entirely on draining the energies with METAL like a round Metal bowl, a chiming clock, Metal objects, the colors of black, white, gray, silver, gold, copper, etc. The MOST IMPORTANT cure is to hang a string of 6 Chinese Coins horizontally in the Center of your home or office. And with that a Salt Water Cure (email for instructions) tucked out of view. Remove ALL photos of family and friends. Hang a prayer of protection, black and white photos of mountains, or a spiritual/ religious image/ message.
ENHANCE – The 8 Star of wealth, success and abundance flies into the North East. Lucky to those of us with a facing door in the North East and in April we are cautioned to pause and be a little more mindful. The Woody 3 Star is already weak and has no ground here in an Earthy direction. The cure for the 8 Star is the same needed to drain the 3 Star which is a great blessing. CURE: If this is your main entrance, hang 8 Chinese Coins on the front door. DO NOT DISTURB with Loud Noises or Banging or Renovation. Use this room quietly. The Grand Duke is in the NE for 2022 so place a pair of Pi Yao Beasties facing into the direction of 52.5 – 67.5 degrees according to your compass. For April have Fire, Fiery colors of red, hot pink, orange or yellow in this room. In a prominent place put 8 red silk flowers. For protection from the Tai Sui or Grand Duke prominently display a He E Tai Sui gold plated plaque to avoid divorce, lawsuits, and other misfortunes. Enjoy using this room regularly and keep it not only active but well lit.
ENHANCE/ DEPRESS – The 3 Star is in the East for 2022 and this month the 7 Metal Star flies in. The Metal clashes with the Wood of the East and weakens it further. Still this is a dangerous scenario because the temper, the anger and upset of the 3 Star now can turn violent. Be mindful of injury, of surgery, of back stabbing especially. CURE: Change things up – Blue is the color that mitigates the Clash of energies so throw some turquoise, or teal, or bright blue in this room for April BUT keep the Red Happy Hotei statue as continuing cure for the 3 Star. (Fire colors are your friend in the East including a fireplace, fire pit or grill on the deck. Red or purple bed linens, rugs, dish towels, and pillows. Artwork that has bright flowers. Add a few lush green floor/ house plants. The annual cure is a Red Happy Hotei statue and a salt crystal lamp or lamp with a red bulb or shade that is kept on continuously throughout the year except when Monthly 5, 7, and 2 Stars fly in).
ENHANCE – The 4 Star is in the South East brings a super energized Peach Blossom of Romance. The 8 Star flies in for the month of April The 4 Star is the BEST place for studies, for romance, for making babies, for creativity, and for travel. The 8 Star is Earthy, and needs Fire to mitigate the Clash happening here. The 8 Star suggests great success in academics, creative projects, and in romantic relationships. CURE: Focus on all the shades of green with accents of red, fuchsia, and violet. Healthy house plants and wood furnishings. Metal is the enemy in this room in furnishings, décor, and colors of black, white, and gray. Also no Earth tones like yellow, brown, tan, peach, or chamois. Place 4 stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a Blue vase in a prominent place. If a bedroom, create a Love Altar to either welcome a new love or invigorate an existing relationship. Place a pair of birds with 2 red candles, a favorite picture of the two of you, and mementos from a favorite trip or event. On a high shelf place a Kwan Yin statue. If this is a front door have a flag or banner out front to activate the chi but no windchimes. For April, add a Red Happy Hotei sitting on a pile of coins to usher in that abundance and success of the 8 Star.
ENHANCE – The 9 Star is at home in the South and this month the 4 Star flies in -The 4 Star brings the potential for drams coming true in romantic relationships, for academic achievements, literary success, and making babies or projects. CURE: Annual cure is to place a Vision Board of all you hope to accomplish, manifest, create in 2022 prominently placed. If this is a front door or primary room, hang a string of 8 or 9 Chinese Coins from the doorknob. In a green vase place 9 Purple Silk flowers. For April the best cure for an artist or someone launching a creative project is a RED jar filled with pens and markers, for a student or academic place a crystal globe on your desk, for a couple wanting to conceive place a Red Hotei Buddha with children, and for romantic success add a picture of your and your love. What an amazing part of your home or office to LAUNCH something BIG or to MANIFEST something amazing.
ENHANCE/ DEPRESS – The 2 Sickness Star is in the South West with the Monthly 6 Metal Star. The 2 Star generates sickness, disease, digestive issues, and overall misfortune. The Sui Po or Year Breaker in the SW asks that you KEEP THIS ROOM DARK AND QUIET with NO renovations, banging, digging, or disruptions. The 6 Star tends to be successful and abundant with wealth. The Metal aspect draisn the 2 Star and makes this room a bit better for the month ahead. CURE: The annual cure is a round Metal bowl and other Metal objects and furnishings. Focus on draining colors of white, gray, and black. If this is a front door and you cannot use another door, hang a Ba-Gua mirror on the outside of the door facing into the street, flank the front steps with Gold Fu Dogs for protection. Enter through this door as quietly as possible. If this is a bedroom and you cannot sleep anywhere else, put a Salt Water Cure under the bed and put a Wu Lou Health Gourd by your bedside for protection. NO FIRE, NO Earthy materials or colors like red, orange, yellow, brown, hot pink, no green or blues. Metal, white, gray, and black is your only element to work with. The 6 Star also responds well to these cures but add 6 Chinese Coins in a prominent place or 6 Gold Ingots on something Blue.
DEPRESS – The 7 Star is in the West where the 2 Earth Star is visiting. The 2 Star is an Earth energy drained by the Metal of the West and the 7 Star but this is a volatile area of the home, office, and property. Be aware that violence, sickness, surgery, and misfortune are rampant now in the West. Great caution should be used to AVOID this area and keep it dark and quiet.

Never have actual Water or images of Water in a bedroom. If a front door hang 6 Chinese Coins from the front door. For April add a Single Gold Ingot on something Blue.
