Booking Spring Feng Shui Consults – Long Distance Zoom or In Person (Maryland, Virginia and DC)
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 will shift into Period 9 in 2024. 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 and balance with these energies not a victim to them.
It has been an interesting start to 2023 as we slipped backwards in February in a Tiger month that might have felt very much like a 2022 review. Then to now have had this past month of March, a Rabbit month, in a Rabbit year giving us a condensed, intense, deep dive down the bunny burrow of all we can anticipate this year to be for us individually and collectively. WOW. That is a lot. I highly recommend sitting down with a journal to process this, and to explore the relationships, events, activities, and overall vibe these past 2 months have revealed to you about your life and the direction of this year.
Now feels like we are in our stride as we land in the mystical magical waters of the Yang Fire Dragon starting with the Full Moon on APRIL 5th. The Rabbit forms a Harm with the Dragon that weakens Dragon’s Earth but I think this will be less felt due to the fact there is Yang Fire supporting Earth in this dynamic. What we are likely to see is that people with a Day Pillar and areas in our world ruled by the Dragon (Iran, Western Russia, Pakistan, Afghanistan) will experience a sudden interruption or upset of some kind. It is a month of caution as any of us could feel the impact of this Harm as a collective. Certainly I would look to the banking industry as we have already seen some disruption there. Now also know that the Dragon and Rabbit form a semi Wood Trio, the Tiger makes this a Full Trio, and that is really driving this scenario of Wood, Fire and Earth in a flow towards something, someone, some aspects of our lives experiencing some hiccup depending on your own Bazi Astrology.
Activate – The 4 Star is in the Center for 2023 had a terrible interruption in March with the 7 Star which may have wreaked havoc on your personal relationships. Now in April we have the 6 Star in the Center with the Annual 4 Star. The 6 Star of Success and Wealth is nurtured by the Earthy Center but this makes the 4 Star even more oppressed and devalued as a Wood Star. Therefore the return of Fire with Earth in the Center will mitigate any conflict. Best Colors/ Decor: Red, Fuchsia, Violet, Tangerine, Rose, Red carpets, fabrics, and prints with images of lovers, of you and your sweetie, and a love poem. Also for April, Yellow and Brown with crystals and pottery to bring in the Earth element. Avoid: all shades of green, Wood, blue, Water and Metal like white, gray, black. CURES: If you have the space, erect a Love Altar with 2 pink or red candles, a pair of birds, a favorite picture of you and your love, a pair of pink quartz crystal hearts, and any little treasures from favorite times together. You can do this altar to attract a love too. If you are an artist, you can do a cure instead to motivate creative pursuits with a Red Vase filled with pens, brushes, etc., also 4 Stalks of Lucky Bamboo in a RED vase.
Neutralize – The 9 Star of future wealth, and abundance is in the North for 2023 and is visited by the 2 Star for April. Now the good news is that the 2 Star is an Earth energy that is in conflict with the Watery North but so is the Fire of the 9 Star. We are bringing in Wood to mitigate the annual clash which will also further depress this visiting Sickness Star which could interrupt our ability to smoothly move forward with future plans, and career progression. This is a shitty place to have a bedroom, office, entrance or important room. Be mindful of not only setbacks but also illness, especially stress related disorders. Best Colors/ Decor: Wood furnishings, all shades of Green, along with Purple, Violet, Eggplant, and Lavender. Tie this in to your carpet, pillows, and artwork that is themed with beautiful florals, and landscapes. Avoid: Water and colors of Blue, Metal and colors of black, white, and gray, Earth tones like yellow, orange, rust, brown, cream, peach, and pink. CURES: Great place to put a Vision Board of all you dream to manifest in 2023. Place 9 Silk Purple Flowers in a GREEN Vase. For a North facing house or bedroom, put a Red Arowana Carp Fish in a prominent place. People born on the Day and/or Year of the Rat are most impacted. Be mindful of health, mental and physical and be proactive by keeping a Wu Lou Health Gourd in this area/room and/or a Red Dragon Headed Turtle for protection.
DEPRESS– The 7 Star is in the North East for 2023 is visited by the 9 Star of Fire. When you put Fire and Metal together there is usually an explosion like gun fire so this is a room/area to be really careful especially if this is a kitchen or place where Fire is already present. Be aware of arguments that turn violent, sickness, surgery, lawsuits, bankruptcy, and misfortune. The NE is Earth that weakens the 9 Star but this is still a problematic interaction of Stars. Best Colors/ Decor: Metal furnishings, all shades of Blue, and White. Bring this into your decor with rugs, pillows, and art that is tranquil like open sky with blue birds, clouds, blue flowers. Avoid: Earth tones like yellow, orange, rust, brown, cream, peach, and pink, actual Water, colors of Green, Wood, Red, Fuchsia, Violet, Tangerine, Rose, Red. CURES: A black dish with rice and a single Chinese Coin with a blood stone atop the coin to absorb negativity and protect finances. Another protection for wealth is displaying a Blue Elephant or Rhino Statue.
Neutralize – The 2 Star is in the East which is one of the most problematic rooms/areas for 2023. The 2 Star suggests illness, and grave misfortune especially to those people born in the year or on the day of a Rabbit, Rooster, or Rat. KEEP THIS ROOM DARK AND QUIET AND UNDISTURBED. The Grand Duke sits in the degrees 82.5-97.5 SE. No construction, loud noise deep digging, or loud noises in this room throughout the year. The 4 Star in April is helpful in alleviating some of this aggravation, bringing some harmony to a disharmonious sector of our homes and offices. Best Colors: Wood and all shades of green, landscapes, floral designs, leaf patterns, and trees. Have a few healthy plants here too. 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 with colors of Blue. CURE: For a front door facing SE that you cannot use another entrance, hang a Ba-Gua mirror to deflect the negative chi and 2 Metal Fu Dogs flanking the entrance. For a bedroom that cannot be changed, hang a Healing Herbs Wu Lou and put a Salt Water Cure under the bed. For appeasing the Grand Duke display a Gold Tai Sui Plaque and a pair of Pi Yao Beasties facing into the afflicted direction. DO NOT FACE THE EAST in the way your head is pointed in bed, in the way you sit and even in the direction you drive from your home. Remove all Family photos.
Depress – The 3 Star is in the South East with the wicked 5 Star for April. This is a funky energy to move in and the only saving grace is that the 5 Star is an Earth chi that is greatly weakened by the Wood of both the direction and the 3 Star. Still to avoid arguments turning violent or leading to divorce or dissolving of partnerships, it is advised to avoid serious discussions and confrontation in this sector of your home or office. Best Colors: Stick with the innate color of this direction, Green in all shades along with landscapes, floral or leaf designs, prints, art. Healthy lush plants. Avoid : All other colors and elements like Water with Blues, Earth tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Fire and the colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange, Violet, and of course Metal with colors of white, gray, and black. Keep this room quiet and serene.
Activate- The 8 Star is in the South and this month we have the 1 Star. One of the best areas of our homes and offices for April and this speaks to great wealth and good fortune. The 8 Star is nourished by the Fire of the South where the 1 Water Star is in conflict, so we want to place a specific cure for this. Best Colors: Earth tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, and also Fire as in Red, Violet, Hot Pink, and Orange. Avoid: Blue, Water, Green, Wood, and Metal with colors of Black, White, and Gray. CURE: Hang a red string of 8 Chinese Coins from the door is this is an entrance. Other options are 8 citrine or red crystal balls in a ceramic square tray/bowl or 8 silk RED Flowers, or a Wealth Cabbage called a Bai Chok or a Red Phoenix statue or image. For the 1 Star in April I would put a single Gold Ingot by one of your other cures.
Activate – The 1 Star is in the South West is visited by the 3 Star. The 1 Star is a wealth Star and is in conflict as a Water Star in this Earth direction. So mitigating with Metal is needed, The 3 Star is also conflicted as a Wood Star so this influence is weakly impacting this area/room for April. Best Colors: Metal and colors of White, Gray and Black with a little Blue thrown in. Worst Colors: Earth like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peace, Fire and Fire colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange and Violet, Blue as in Water, and Wood as well as Green colors. CURE: The annual cure is a round Metal bowl and other Metal objects and furnishings. Place a single Gold Ingot on something Blue for wealth and if this is your office, place a Red Ru Yi Sword to strengthen your career.
Activate – The 6 Star is in the West with the blessing of the 8 Star making this one of the best rooms of the house for this month. The 6 Star and 8 Star are harmonious in the Metal West and both foretell success, wealth, and abundance. The only caution is that the Three Killings and The Sui Po are here for 2023 requiring special treatment. The West sits opposite to the Annual Rabbit in the East. Make sure your FACE West, and keep this area QUIET and UNDISTURBED while enjoying the benefits of these good fortune Stars. Best Colors: Earth tones like Yellow, Brown, Tan, Peach, Rust, crystals, pottery, Metal and the colors of White, Gray, and Black. Avoid: Wood, colors of Green and Blue, Water, and Fire and Fire colors of Red, Hot Pink, Orange and Violet. CURE: A Gold Happy Hotei sitting on an Ingot, or 6 Gold Ingots in a Metal round dish, and to appease the Sui Po and Three Killings, point a Silver Elephant in the direction of 232.5-307.5 W. A special cure of the 3 Celestial Mirror ensures you get the optimal benefit from this good chi. The 8 Star just adds more energy to this abundance.
Depress–The 5 Star is in the North West is one of the most afflicted directions for 2023. AVOID this area at all cost and especially as a bedroom or main entrance. Move if at all possible to another bedroom or entrance. Anything and everything that can go wrong will if this is disturbed. KEEP THIS AREA/ROOM QUIET, DARK, AND UNDISTURBED BY LOUD RENOVATIONS OR NOISE. The 7 Star brings an element of violence, risk of surgery or injury with sharp objects. Danger surround the NW, take heed. Best Colors: Metal with Blue, White, Gray, and Black. AVOID: 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. If a Kitchen, cover the burners with cookie sheets when not in use. 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. Be really careful with everything you do here. Metal is the best Cure as in a round Metal bowl or something that chimes like a clock.
